What does your shadow do when you're not looking?
This article is long, I make no apologies for that. If you are looking for a quick fix to satisfy the ego, wanting to gain information at an intellectual level to temporarily feel better, or dismiss it all believing that we are beyond all this stuff now, this labour of Love and of great value that follows is not for you. A safe space and sacred vessel has been created here to dive deep, providing an opportunity to be seen and heard, to fully feel anything that arises, and where we no longer need to suppress, resist or deny anything.
Feel into this content with awareness, read a little at a time, and then reflect on it and become aware of what it invokes in you. From now until November , our journey of life will be descending down into the deeper mysteries, and that will include our childhood and unconscious ancient past lives to illuminate and reveal the unknown within us. Scorpio as a water sign is connected with feelings and emotions, and this transit over the next year is about understanding, embracing and expanding our emotions so we can develop intimacy with ourselves and others.
It certainly favours looking at the deeper and darker places within ourselves. I can only share from my own experience and offer that to serve humanity.

We must all do the healing work necessary that lets the unacknowledged, rejected parts of ourselves be seen and heard, so we no longer need to hold the toxic energy of our past in our body. Going through my own process of shadow work and grieving has enabled me to tap into the collective suffering even more. It is a humbling heart opening process, yet it has enabled me to speak out more and be of service in the best way I can without neglecting myself, and continuing to work on myself. I have learnt to accept challenges as they show up, knowing they have something to teach me.
We know we have all signed up for these times, and it is time to put an end to the spiritual by-passing now and do the work that is required of us.
Murder Casts a Shadow: A Hawaiæi Mystery by Victoria Nalani Kneubuhl
We go into shadow work to face our fears to discover our treasure. Self awareness and shadow work is a requirement for authenticity and wholeness. True growth and transformation happens when we shine the Light on the unknown places within us. We all have an innate ability to fool ourselves. It requires vulnerability to look within, to see ourselves fully.

That means honouring our light, our beauty and gifts — including our perceived weaknesses. By doing the real work of identifying and integrating shadow, understanding the purpose of attracting illness and what needed revealing, releasing and claiming, and learning from that transformational journey of loss and unresolved grief that illness brought with it, I was brought to another level of consciousness and called back into the world in a completely new and different way.
Humbled and in deep gratitude, I claimed it…the unique soul gift, the Black Rose, birthed and brought forth through me, has all been in preparation for this Jupiter Scorpio transit to provide safe passage and assist others who are ready to explore and integrate their unconscious shadow too. The Black Rose teachings and Light Transmissions offer an invitation to those who want to heal their past, integrate shadow, and change their relationship to emotions. Our group gatherings for shadow work were created to share and go deeper, because we need others to show us our shadow. I share this not with an inflated ego to say look at me and what I can offer you…..
I choose to stand and share this truth and hold out a hand to come together in community because of what I had to go through to integrate my shadow to claim my hidden treasure. I share it as an example of what we can still become in spite of challenges when we free ourselves from the emotional pain and suffering of the past. When we integrate our shadow we move into that powerful place of acceptance, and we find ourselves giving birth to the wisdom that our pain has been trying to teach us all along.
It enables us to be reborn into the truth of what we have always been — our empowered authentic self. In facing my shadow I unlocked the judgement, resentment and criticism that my body was crippled with, and in doing so, it freed me to Love more deeply and consciously. When we face and give voice to our backlogged emotional wounds, challenge ourselves to see the stories of our ego for what they are, and reclaim the projections we put on others, we come to a place of honesty, authenticity and self acceptance.
Shadow work is a life long commitment. And it is the greatest gift we can give to ourselves now to evolve in Heart consciousness — and for our overall well-being. How do we keep ourselves trapped in our story and use excuses to keep ourselves stuck for fear of moving forward? Many of us avoid our shadow selves because we are not even aware of it, even though we all have one.
In that avoidance, what we reject about ourselves we project outwards onto others. For example, we may feel anger and rage so instead of taking responsibility to get to the root of what our anger is about, we project it onto another as judgement or blame. We are not at peace. We become out of balance and disconnected. I had unknowingly suppressed my emotions all my life as I like many was never taught how to process them. In doing so I had unconsciously hid my wounds and patterns from childhood and a deep feeling of sadness, resentment and loss permeated my adult life and I did not know why.
Shadow work revealed the feelings of rejection, abandonment, injustice and lack of support I felt from my mother and father in my teenage years and through adult life.
That sadness was hiding the hurt and loss I felt from the unacknowledged, unexpressed feelings and unresolved grief of perceived injustice. Shadow work does not mean we are not working from the Heart or in the higher realms of Light. This is the biggest task for everyone now if we truly want to see change and that includes those of us in the healing professions — the Teachers, the Healers and the Therapists who must also find the courage to face their own Shadow side and be aware when it is playing out and do the deeper healing work that is now required if we have not done so already….
Whether we are in a place to accept this as truth or not, journeying within into our inner realms is the only place to go if we want to see peace in the world and be the Light we have come here to be. By going into the darkness and surrendering to an alchemical process, we open to a greater force beyond our control and transformation takes place — it enables us to become more than we could ever be on our own.
The truth is, it is impossible to expand, to grow and evolve into what our soul longs us to be without meeting our darkness first. We do not have to do this work on our own, reach out to find the support if needed from a Therapist or from someone who understands your struggle and can offer a safe place to explore your challenges and pain.
To face the shadow of our own mind means becoming an observer of it. And facing our shadow side will be unique for everyone. Until we open and embody all of ourselves by bringing our mind, Heart and Soul into our body then nothing changes. Emotional pain…physical pain….
We reclaim our passion. And that is where we are at now at this point of time. If we want to stop destroying ourselves and the world, we must learn to open our Hearts and no matter how scary it is, it is in allowing ourselves to be vulnerable. Although we may experience darkness in our lives from time to time, we can still discover the Light within our souls to rise above it, master it and learn the lessons from it. What if the chaos or challenge we may be experiencing was for the purpose of true soul awakening to die to what we thought we were, to be re-birthed into a new being to remember who we are?
Through the challenges we are faced with, we are being called to be accountable and to take responsibility for what is happening in our lives — and on our planet. If we want to stop destroying ourselves and the world we live in, we must integrate it. No more spiritual fluff, spiritual by-passing, avoiding, resisting, denying or hiding. Having the courage to stay open in the unknown, to understand and recognise the shadow, will enable us to truly serve in an authentic way.
By transmuting an experience of illness into something else, the potent gift of the Black Rose birthed through me is my soul mission to assist and guide others to truly Love them selves by providing a safe passage through darkness and shadow to the Light — these offerings could only be birthed AFTER I had gone through the process of Alchemy for myself.
It is then I became the Alchemist through the transformation of my own struggles, diversity and the integration of my own Shadow. When we find ourselves reacting to something…it is our shadow.

We are not in control. How can we change that emotion into something positive? Only we can change it. Stop and become aware. Become an alchemist to change your life. When we feel helpless, powerless and not in control, this leads to more stress for us as we not only hide and suppress how we really feel, we start to defend out actions too. When we feel discomfort and resistance, or avoid facing and addressing something that is on fire within us, this is a sure sign our shadow side is acting out.
When we find ourselves in victim mode, it is a sign our shadow has risen to conquer that pattern of victimhood. Maybe we avoid confrontation with a friend or loved one. Other people are a mirror for our shadow too. So what we judge about them and blame for causing havoc in our lives, the judgement is also present within our selves unrecognised.
The Sacred Shadow: Enter Into the Daily Mystery of God's Kingdom
Whilst it can be very challenging to integrate our shadow, embracing it is about getting real and seeing where we kid ourselves. The dirt, the shit, the ugly — as well as our positive aspects. It is only through great effort to become self aware that we start to recognise our shadow side and how it plays out in our world because it controls a lot of what we do.
When we can recognise and face our shadow we become more balanced, whole and creative. Although shadow work can be uncomfortable at times, there are also beautiful diamond facets of the self that begin to emerge. In bringing our shadow stuff to the Light to be transformed, we reclaim our power and stand in our truth. We find our purpose in life. And that is what is needed now…particularly from women ready to step up into their leadership roles. When we truly heal our wounds and pain instead of hiding or glossing over them, we allow more of our Heart Light to shine. Then we are in an authentic place without our own masks and can assist and guide others through their own.
Relationships, spiritual Circles and areas of Love all provide us with a mirror to see our own shadow stuff and provide a sacred opportunity to heal — yet Circles and spirituality have a shadow side too. However, unless we are willing to have the courage to open up and be vulnerable, we are just making the shadow stronger and limiting our possibilities to having true, authentic connection when we hide, avoid or run away.
I used to avoid and deny how I was really feeling inside by hiding my own feelings and needs. In doing so, I suppressed my shadow and allowed it to become even stronger. And when I saw how my unconscious shadow had sabotaged me in many areas of life, including preventing me having deep loving authentic relationships because of co-dependency, by bringing it all into the Light of Truth it hurt. It really hurt. The upcoming festival of Samhain Halloween offers us a wonderful opportunity to explore our shadow side and look at the masks we wear to cover our true self.

Whist there is a time for sharing our stories with others, there comes a time where we must move beyond the talking and take responsibility to change our situation with the grace of an adult and not remaining stuck in our story with the grief of a child. Where most people become stuck is staying in the place of blame and denying the truth and resisting sitting with what is arising to be here now. And how do we deal with anger or with any emotion for that matter?
