Shadows to light.
"Bringing our shadows to light" is an act of courage and humility. It expresses (exposes) the parts of ourselves we wish would simply "go away." However, an interesting thing happens when those parts are exposed: they no longer look so big and scary! (unmanageable and overwhelming). Allowing light to illuminate our darker parts provides an opportunity, not only to see them, but to also ask ourselves, "How well am I served by these parts of me?" The clarity that comes from this process and the energy we save that was previously wasted in pretending that these parts "are not me," can now be used and directed in a manner that better creates the life we want to live.
