You and Your Shadow

Hello, dreamy babes!

Today I’m talking about an often overlooked and somewhat taboo part of self development – shadow work. Often associated with magickal people, it’s the key for anyone on the path to a more developed self awareness. No matter how you define it, we all aim to live an abundant life. Shadow work might just be the secret to creating the life you desire. Alright, let’s get co-creating!

As I took the dive (head first) into embracing my true calling, my passions, my abundance – I cordially introduced myself to my shadow. It’s not that cute, lanky, black silhouette that follows me around all day. It’s the other me that dwells inside. It’s the unconscious me. Now, I know we’re all aware that there are darker parts of our being that we aren’t all too keen on, but have you ever considered that you might as well embrace those parts of you, too? I’d like to lovingly suggest that you add this to your bag of tricks. Knowing and loving your shadow is the missing piece.

Embrace Your Truth & Trust the Universe

Hello, friends – new and old. I have got to tell you something!

I don’t believe in coincidence anymore.

I walk around wearing a 50 year old dress and a sleeve of sailor tattoos like it’s no big deal, but I’m afraid to talk about magickal moments?

Look and listen already, damn it!” I’ve always believed certain things were meant to be, I’ve seen the ‘signs’ as they were presented (whether I chose to listen or not), I’m very spiritual but had no real ground to stand on in that area. You might even say I’m very superstitious.

Now, when I say ‘the other morning’ I don’t mean yesterday; this happened a week ago. I sat with this magickal occurrence for an entire week!! I’ve decided, like I said already, it’s time to come out with it.

Journaling – Everyday Life’s Goldmine of Creativity

Journal! Do you have one? I bet you do.

As I start this journey of sharing my know how with you, my journal is becoming my main lifeline.

I’ve always had a few notebooks around the house, but I really only used them when I needed to make a grocery list or work out some tough emotions. Lately, I’ve been carrying around this beautiful black leather bound book in my bag and I cannot stress enough just how much it’s improved my creative process!

Every time we’re on the internet – which let’s be honest, is probably too often – we find things we “like” or “pin” and that’s more often than not a fleeting thought. A plethora of references that could really improve our creative process are just lost to a click.
