Working With Your Shadow

Draw a line through your life dividing it in half. The part above the line is your daily life – your job, your relationships, your kids, housework and friends. This is the area that is mostly under your conscious control. It is where you balance your checkbook and decide where to go for dinner. The area below the line is the realm of your shadow. It is the realm of emotion. The shadow is the engine that drives your life, that gives it vitality. It is the source of your power.
