I've been creating a lot of Energy work recently around Shadow Material, and Debbie Ford is one of the great minds in our time around Shadow Material. She has a book called "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers". It's a wonderful manual on how to look at the parts of us that may be hidden from us in the shadow.
I wanted to read this seminal work so that I could be aware of everything that she's put out in the collective consciousness that I am now a beneficiary of, because it is in the collective, and she's taught so many people.
I also wanted to make myself do all of the work and all of the exercises in this book.
Quantum Energy Infusion, Level Three, actually spends a lot of time doing Energy work and teaching the energetic aspects of working with the shadow.
In one of the chapters, she suggests that we have some personalities that all of us have called sub-personalities.
That can be a part of us that got shoved down when we were a kid, or even when we were older. It's a part of us that we are not seeing fully right now.
If you've heard of internal family systems, it's very similar to that, and I've done a lot of work with that. So I understood this concept of sub-personalities immediately.
Well, the beautiful thing is, Debbie Ford says, "Imagine yourself-- go into a visualization. Imagine yourself on a bus, and this bus is full of all of these people. Well, they are your sub-personalities. See what they look like--all genders, all ages, all colors, from all different countries, all sizes, big and small, fat and little, tall; they all look different".
And then she goes on to say "Invite one of them to go for a walk with you".
I thought that was lovely and I have already done so much Shadow Work and so much work with internal family systems, I thought "I've already done this. I've done that, I've done the energy work that she's talking about".
Well as as my personality would have it, I was walking on the beach the next morning and was meditating. I was spending beautiful quiet time in the morning with Mother Nature doing my prayer work, my meditation, and my energy work.
Along comes Wicked Wilma--just bigger than life. Wicked Wilma showed right up next to me and came along for the walk. And I went "Well how's that for some personality to show up?"
So Wicked Wilma proceeded to tell me all the reasons that she was in my life, all the gifts that she brought to me, and all of the beautiful things that she had supported me with in my life.
I ended up having a great conversation with Wicked Wilma.
Well, so much for me thinking that I didn't need to do that part of the exercise.
So come the next morning, Sneaky Sandy shows up. You can't make this stuff up, right?
We had this wonderful conversation during the walk--she was probably there 10 or 12 minutes and then away she went and I enjoyed the rest of my walk.
Yesterday Truthful Tilly showed up. The one in you that says "We have to tell the truth or we're gonna be in trouble!". That one. She was probably about 10 years old.
This morning, Desperate Doreen showed up. She had a lot to tell me about the desperate aspects of my personality that are living in my shadow.
So first of all, I think it's hysterical that I thought I'd already done so much work that I probably had already checked off that column of working with some personalities.
Now I know that there's probably more of them than I can even imagine. And I am now hilariously inviting them into my space. I invite you to just look into Shadow Work. See if it's something that resonates with you. It's certainly benefiting me. And it's bringing forth parts of me that have been dark and hidden in the shadows. It's bringing them forth and bringing their gifts into my life so that I can better express myself as the whole person that I am.
