This is the time to use your energy wisely. Do what needs to be done and then take time to de-stress. You can’t fix everything at once when you do Shadow Work. It is important that you take one or two aspects that are causing you discomfort and look at those closely.
Depending on what issues you are working through in your Shadow Work, this meditation may be comforting or very difficult. It should end with some relaxation to help you calm down if it was challenging.
Read through the following meditation and then close your eyes. Remember what you can of the meditation but there is no need to follow it exactly. Let yourself use the meditation in any way you need to.
Take a few deep breaths and close your eyes. Find yourself in a large, mostly empty room. There are a few chairs against the wall, and a few doors leading out. There is nothing on the wall or the floor and the room is quiet.
Go and sit on one of the chairs. After a few moments alone, someone enters the room and sits down next to you. Who is it who joins you? Do you have something you need to say to them? Do they have something they need to say to you?
How do you feel with this person? Try not to pass judgment on this feeling. Just acknowledge it and examine why you feel this way.
If this person is new to you, think of what it is about the way they look, carry themselves and talk that gives you a certain feeling. Can you think of others in your life who make you feel this way?
You may ask this person any questions you have for them. After you have discussed all you need to say goodbye. They rise and leave the room.
I want you to focus on the feeling you had with this person one last time. Now I want you to blow out that feeling on your breath. It looks like your breath on a freezing cold day leaving your body. It may also have a color or turn into a figure. Even if it is a good feeling, breathe it out into this bare room.
On each inhale feel yourself fill up with peace and calm. There is no feeling left just stillness. There is no need to do or think about anything. Just feel the stillness in your body. Breathe deeply and sink into this calm feeling. Sit for as long as you need to in this relaxed state.
When you are ready begin to hear the sounds around your physical body. Wiggle your fingers and toes, and open your eyes.
Take some time to think about, journal or pull tarot or oracle cards about the following questions.
How do certain people affect your emotions?
Are there some people who seem to drain all your energy?
How difficult was it to let the feeling go with your breath?
