Our "shadow self" (term made familiar by psychologist Carl Jung) consists of the darkest parts of our soul; the repressed part of ourselves that we reject and avoid, that's been shaped by people and circumstances we've encountered throughout our life. Often, we unknowingly project these parts of ourselves onto others and remain stuck in a viscous cycle of pain and unhealed trauma.
Within this workbook, you'll find 30 guided journal prompts, along with space to make note of any negative thoughts that come up while you're working on these entries. You'll be able to challenge these negative thoughts with a new perspective; a more positive statement based on facts. Practicing this method over time, you'll learn that most initial thoughts are NOT facts. The speed at which you're able to transition negative thoughts into something more positive will improve.
"Shadow Work" can help you begin to heal your inner child, while learning more about your present self. Begin to repair your relationship with yourself and others, and uncover the reasons why you think and behave the way you do. Increasing your awareness of your "shadow self" facilitates personal growth and prompts the realization that "light" cannot exist without "darkness". Get ready to integrate your darkness into your present (conscious) self and learn to accept all that you truly are.
