The process of bringing what was once hidden into the light. It is the work of honoring both the light and dark that resides within ourselves. It is an important tool for self awareness and growth.
In this blog post, I have shared with you some personal journal prompts that help helped me in my own healing journey.
**TIP: When it comes to doing shadow work or any type of personal growth, remember to be gentle on yourself. You do not need to go through all of the journal prompts included unless you want to. Sometimes, it take just one question to bring profound transformation and healing.**
What qualities irritate you in other people? Do you see any of these qualities in yourself?
Think about denial. Write down your pattern of behaviors that you might be in rejecting: Over Eating? Shopping? Sex Addiction?
Ask yourself how these things make you feel. Do you feel you don’t have control? What is the issue?
When did this become an issue and WHY?
Why is it an issue and what is is taking away from?
What do you WANT to feel once the issue is resolved and what is it taking away from?
Write about a situation where someone labeled you in a negative way. How has this label affected the person you’ve become?
If you could say one thing to the person who’s hurt you the most right now, what would it be and why?
What’s the one thing you know you need to do but keep avoiding?
Now, create a complete step-by-step description of actually doing it. Upon finishing: How do you feel?
