Reveal Your Shadow Self By Choosing What You See First

Your Shadow Self is a hidden force of tremendous power which, when harnessed, can bring great results in our lives. It’s a force made of star dust, of that very material that created the cosmos.

Your Shadow Self

“It is a frightening thought that man also has a shadow side to him, consisting not just of little weaknesses- and foibles, but of a positively demonic dynamism. The individual seldom knows anything of this; to him, as an individual, it is incredible that he should ever in any circumstances go beyond himself. But let these harmless creatures form a mass, and there emerges a raging monster. ~ Carl Jung, “On the Psychology of the Unconscious“

Let’s find more about your Shadow Self… What do you see first in this picture?

If you chose BEAR:

I‘m driven by my Heart

If the first thing you notice in the picture, is the bear, then a battle is happening inside your heart. This battle is ever going and you probably still remember it from a very young age.
The bear symbolises all the forces of the unconscious which have never been revealed. Your shadow self is much more powerful in you and like a powerful bear drives your destiny and creates your future. When your libido is awakened you deal with great amounts of energy which can be really creative or destructive. You can hardly ever manage these energies and the more you try to condense them the more intense and dagnerous they get.
You are a fierce force of Nature which cannot be controlled, not even by you. It would be wiser to be embraced. You should learn how to ground yourself – when energy is excessive – and more importantly learn how to calm yourself through meditation and LOVE. Once you embrace your emotions you are capable of great things!

If you chose MOUNTAIN:

I‘m driven by my Thoughts

If the first thing you notice is the Mountains then your are a work in progress. In fact you are an Alchemical Procedure, which always requires you to be alert, demanding sacrifices every now and then.
The mountain symbolizes – for the alchemists – the road of the Adepts, which is hard and needs effort to climb to the top of it. But the top of the mountain is a lonely place, where only one can stand on it. Deep inside your heart you think that only yourself can understand you. But is this true? Maybe you have not been honest with others and yourself. To be accepted, you need to open your heart.
You probably put your career first and then your social and personal life, living your heart barren and dry from satisfaction. This makes you feel tired, and day by day this fatigue is more profound. It doesn’t have to be this way. Balance is important. Love is all we need. Love is all you need. The alchemists believe that the philosophers stone is not on the top of the mountain but in its heart. You are a wonderful soul which needs to be appreciated not by its accomplishments but as it is! If only people knew how wonderful you are!

If you chose TREES:

I‘m driven by my Spirit

If the first thing you notice in this picture is the forest with its trees, then your shadow self is much more socially oriented than you would probably ever admit.
The trees of the forest are always communicating with each other, by so many ways, more than we can even understand. Their roots are interconnected transmitting and receiving signals from each other, informing them about the rain and warning them about all dangers. Trees talk and so should you. You need to connect more with others around you. Connect with the Earth through grounding.
Just like the trees in a forest, we are all connected with Mother Nature. Turning to Her will help us receive joy and affection. You’ve been hurt in the past but don’t let this affect you. Make more friends, go out and flirt, laugh, cry and live more! Time to express all these powerful emotions you’ve been hiding. The more you experience, the more powerful you are going to become!

If you chose MOON:

I‘m driven by my Dreams

If the first thing you’ve noticed in this picture is the retatively small moon and its stars then you probably do not even belong in this world.
You are a sparkling force of the Fairy world, touched by spirits and entities which do not belong in our Realm. You are amongst the few who are connected with the invisible Forces of this World. In your Dreams, you’ve been constantly visited by fairies and Angels who advise you. There dreams are creating your Destiny whether you know it or not. Try writing down your dreams. This will help you unlock their powers and understand more about you.

Summon the fairies and Learn how to invite them in your life to become more aware of your powers. On the other hand, try to connect more with this world as this will help you achieve more balance in your life.

This Is How To Strengthen Your Aura And Protect Yourself From Being Emotional Vampires

Do you feel exhausted at the end of each day, worn down by the people around you? You’re not alone—and we can help!
Consider our tips for dealing with aura drain and a general lack of energy below.
First, what causes aura drain?
Any number of things can cause a drain on your aura, or energy, but the most common are these habits below:
  • Alcohol, drug, or tobacco use
  • Lack of exercise
  • Lack of fresh air
  • Lack of adequate rest
  • Poor diet
  • Stress
Start by addressing your habits above. If you smoke, drink, or use drugs? Stop. If you don’t regularly exercise, start. Work on your rest and diet, as well as eliminating extra stress where you can, and you’ll see some immediate changes.

How do I maintain a healthy aura?

Once you have made the above steps, though, you still have to keep that energy up. Consider these tricks.
1) Don’t let yourself get drained in the first place
If you note that the above steps help, but that there are other things in your life that drain you, start by addressing those things. For instance, you may note that talking to certain people leaves you exhausted.
If so, stay away from those people: You don’t need them stealing your energy!
Often, these might be the sort of people who are leeching energy off of you. For instance, have you noticed people tell you they feel better after speaking with you? This could be one reason why—they’re taking your energy for themselves.
Any easy solution is to avoid those people.
2) Practice energy breathing
As you may already know from meditation or yoga or other spiritual practices, controlling and maintaining your breath is an important part of keeping your energy balanced.
One way you can keep your energy for yourself is to practice your energy breathing. There are just a few simple steps to take.
First, place your dominant hand on your nose. Place the thumb on one side of your nose, and your fingers on the other. Press down with the thumb to close the corresponding nostril (so if you’re right-hand dominant, this would be your right nostril), and place your tongue against the roof of your mouth. Remain relaxed.
Second, breathe in through your nose. Not only do your nasal hairs warm the air, they also filter the air to limit the risk of inflammation in your respiratory organs. This breathing technique balances the poles of your body—male and female, positive and negative, sun and moon. Inhale for a count of four.
Third, use your fingers to close the other nostril, so both nostrils are now closed. Hold your breath, for up to a count of sixteen. If that’s too long for you, start with a lower count and work your way up.
Fourth, release the thumb (though keep your fingers in place), releasing your breath for a count of eight.
Fifth, and finally, breathe in through the open nostril, repeating the process you just completed, but on the opposite nostril.
Complete six cycles in total.
3) Use the cleansing vortex
A powerful visualization, the cleansing vortex can help you release negative energies you may have accumulated during the day.
First, make sure you are relaxed and at ease. For some people, practicing the energy breathing technique above can put them at ease.
Second, visualize an energy whirlwind twenty feet above your head. Picture the funnel entering you through the crown of your head, working its way deeper into your body.
Rotating clockwise, you should see it sweeping up the negative energy you have accumulated through the day, sweeping them away until they are deposited at your feet.
When all of the negative energies have left you, visualize the cleansing vortex leaving, and let yourself go on with your day.

Try these tricks next time you feel like your energy has gone missing on you, and let us know what works for you.
