Down the Rabbit Hole and Back Again

EMOTIONAL HEALTH
DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE AND BACK AGAIN

By KG Stiles, LMT, RBT, CBP

The primary attribute of your Shadow is Resistance. This shows up as body tension and armoring in our physical body. It also manifests as repetitive feeling states, emotions and thoughts. Body armoring is immediately recognizable to everyone of us on an unconscious level, but since we’re basically playing by the same, polite game rules we never allow ourselves to “see” the cloudy state of unconsciousness most of us walk around in.

Remember cartoonist Charles Schultz’ lovable Pig Pen character. We loved Pig Pen BECAUSE he always walked around in a cloud of dust particles. Well, believe it or not, most of us walk around with auric fields just as ridden with dust particles as Pig Pen and we are no less lovable. Why does the “flawed” character appeal to us on the “Big Screen yet not within ourselves?”

In my article, Your “False” Emotional Nature, I named several of the emotional states of consciousness so prevalent in modern society. Recurring themes include:

  • Abandonment who is predisposed to attacks of anxiety and panic
  • Deprivation or Lack which results in chronic depression and jealousy
  • The Slave who is dependent upon others’ good graces resulting in persistent feelings of anger and resentment.
  • Mistrust which gives rise to chronic feelings of rage and fear of loss of control
  • Unlovable Child who has an impatience and a careless attitude
  • Social Misfit who feels chronic rage and depression

There are of course an endless array of Shadow Voices and Complex Underworld Characters that may develop and lay in wait only to surface at the most opportune moment often sabotaging our best “conscious” intentions. Each of our Shadow Voices always has its own signature “false” emotional nature.

As I said the primary attribute of your Shadow Voice is Resistance, not accepting what is. Always wanting things to be other than they are. WHERE does resistance come from and WHY is it the Shadow’s primary attribute.

Here is the Simple, yet profound Truth that can set you free “IF” integrated fully into your conscious awareness. First let me say I don’t know anyone who would say that Resistance engenders a Resourceful state of awareness. Far from it!

Resistance is futile! It will get you absolutely nowhere. Period. Someone once said, “The best argument for a north wind is to put on an overcoat.” The same can be said for Resistance. Resistance bluntly put is plain old Ignorance in sheep’s clothing and definitely not a mark of the wise soul or even of a mature personality to be sure.

Another word for Resistance is Judgment. That’s right, Judgment. So now we come to WHY all the Resistance from your Shadow. Your Shadow is Simply Mirroring your Resistance to IT. As soon as you ACCEPT your Shadow and stop sending it emotional signals of:

  • Abandonment who is predisposed to attacks of anxiety and panic
  • Deprivation or Lack which results in chronic depression and jealousy
  • The Slave who is dependent upon others’ good graces resulting in persistent feelings of anger and resentment.
  • Mistrust which gives rise to chronic feelings of rage and fear of loss of control
  • Unlovable Child who has impatience and a careless attitude
  • Social Misfit who feels chronic rage and depression

You will experience a sense of wholeness and well-being. As you accept and awaken to the “necessity” of your shadow and the great service it performs in its polar role your perceptual system will undergo a profound shift. This shift in perception stimulates the reorganization of your nervous system to a more balanced, relaxed state which consequently give rise to your experiencing an inner feeling states of peace. You are FREE to live a more joyful and rewarding life or whatever it is you choose to imagine for yourself.

Bowenwork® perfectly addresses the release of resistance and tension in the nervous system. Please read my article on, Your Nervous System ~ Foundation ofr Healing, for more information about how Bowen works to clear resistance.

I hope these articles on Transforming Your Shadow have been helpful to you and will inspire you to new acts of Self empowerment! Wholeness, our natural state of being, is really quite simple and so easy. Really it is as easy as falling off of a rock. You just relax and let go, the rest comes naturally. It’s your mind tells you otherwise.

Your nervous system is the physical counterpart of your mind, so once your nervous system has reorganized to a more balanced state your mind will calm down and be more peaceful and easy for you (Your Essential or Natural Self, also known as your REAL or TRUE Nature) to direct.
