 How Reiki Aids in Healing the Shadow Self





How does Reiki aid in healing the shadow self? Using Reiki while healing the shadow self can be a powerful tool. Reiki helps extract and eliminate negative energies. These negative energies could cause blockages. These blockages often hold the aspects of the shadow self.

What Is the 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 demonic dynamism. The individual seldom knows anything about 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.”

Your shadow self is the depiction of your subconscious mind. Whether you recognize it, your shadow self is continually manipulating your thoughts and behavior, pointing out your old hurts and masquerading repressed emotions as rational notions. The shadow self is the side of yourself you hide from yourself. The part of your unconscious mind, the conscious mind does not want to face. In other words, the shadow self is the darker side of the personality. The part of yourself you do not want to accept for whatever reason. Your shadow self is the part of your personality that is unknown or unclear to you.

The shadow self is the part of yourself you do not want the world or you to see. It is those deep dark secrets and desires we all hide. The shadow self is the side of yourself you do not want to admit to, but it is still a part of who you are. Because the shadow self is filled with what we all seem to see as the darkest sides of ourselves, we dislike exploring it. If one can break through the subconscious mind and reach the shadow self, much soul healing can take place. Of course, this could take many lifetimes to achieve.

There are those that believe we are here on Earth to heal the shadow self. We are here on Earth to help one another and heal the planet. As we help those around us and the Earth heal, we will face and heal the shadow self. We believe with many life times of healing, the shadow self will disappear. It is in our efforts to heal our shadow selves, we help to heal the Universal mind.
