About Shadow Work Journal and Workbook:
This journal workbook is the perfect self-help project for you to learn about the
therapeutic method of Shadow Work. The author and famous psychologist Carl Jung was one of the first to introduce the concept of the Shadow and its exploration through the method of Shadow Work.
The Shadow is a dark side of ourselves that we don’t usually show to others. Instead, we keep it hidden behind the mask we put on to interact with others. This part might be perceived as dark, but that doesn’t mean it is evil. Often, it’s the part that is vulnerable or sad, ignored, and that might evoke shame or avoidance. This unconscious part of our personality can include positive and negative elements, but often it includes the things we have been taught to avoid and not manifest. It can be related to trauma and painful experiences of the past.
We usually ignore the Shadow, but when we do, it can take control of our lives and sabotage many things we try to do. However, when it is faced and integrated, brought into the light, warts and all, it becomes an unparalleled source of emotional growth and development. It is an essential step to take for anyone hoping to unlock their full potential.
Using affirmations and writing prompts alongside well-researched information, the book motivates you to give the best possible objective outlook on how to work on your inner self.
Most people grow up with some kind of early life trauma. It is highly possible
you could have had an uneventful childhood that doesn’t exempt us from
developing a shadow self. Over the course of this journal workbook, we will look at three parts of the Shadow Work journey. Through the use of different journaling methods, we will take
a deeper look into the deep-seated shadow self that manifests itself at our
lowest points and insecurities, which it takes and uses to disconnect us from
ourselves. Almost no trauma is the same and every human experiences it in
their own unique way.
