Manifestation tip 7: do shadow work

To thrive you must embrace all aspects of yourself including your shadow. 

Over-glorification of light could be causing you to miss out on significant opportunities for personal growth and prosperity.

As there are many good things that come from spending time on the darker aspects of yourself. 

The shadow is the hidden part of yourself that you suppress — sometimes knowingly but often times unconsciously. 

This side of you needs expression and when it is locked up or held down, it often breaks free and acts out by causing you to self-sabotage. 

No matter how fast you run, your shadow more than keeps up. Sometimes it’s in front. Only full, overhead sun diminishes your shadow. But that shadow has been serving you. What hurts you blesses you. Darkness is your candle. Your boundaries are your quest.
— Rumi

Shadow work is the process of acknowledging, respecting, nurturing and leveraging all of who you are — particularly the parts that you've kept under cover. 

You despise and fear what you don't understand but accepting and embracing your unknown self has benefits you wouldn't otherwise reap. 

It is a misconception that the dark must be banished. Because if there weren't darkness, how could there be light?
