The Power of Shadow Work to Claim a True-Er Self


Held quite tightly. 

Some glued on by society! 

Until the true-er self releases all those repressed shadow emotions: anger, anxiety and sadness. 

As the true-er self strengthens and the mask is un-glued there WILL BE much anxiety for the person, surrounding relationships and the whole system. Freud knew this. Jung knew this. Bowen knew this. Berne knew this. Lerner knew this. Adult development theorists know this. There will also be attempts to “change back” – put the mask back on…and do it immediately. And, coaches and leaders can also get caught in that “change back”.  

There is an equilibrium that is comfortable. 

Reflection: Can we sit with the quality of any emotion? What it whispers?
