Asked if I would try
To leave this all behind
Halo round his head
Dreaming in our bed
In our bed, in our bed
It’s sacrilege, sacrilege, sacrilege, you say
-Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, Sacrilege
The past few weeks have been filled with personal soul shifts. I find myself wandering through the maze of my personal desire and how coherent I am being in my life, work and creative expression.
Moment to moment we find ways to be completely present, but as a whole it becomes easy to slip into anxiety and depression… pondering the pain of the past or ambling into the possibilities of the future. What interest me more is how I am showing up in all my dripping, magical glory to the disco happening right here, right now!
My sincere intent is to dance to every song and feel every light burning on as the mirror-ball turns. Maybe it’s not my favorite jam, but I can find my rhythm in the song… do the dance, until the dance does me.
What the hell am I talking about?
I am talking about being in the present moment with whatever is before me, around me… and most importantly within me. My dreams, my desires, my fears and my fuck-ups. You cannot heal the pain or create the dream if you cannot be in the moment… with every part of yourself as it is.
Changing the perspective is essential to become coherent and congruent with all our parts. If I am hitting the wall, losing my rhythm and finding myself in despair, then I know I have forgotten how big, magical and vibrant I really am (as we all are). And I’ve given into the small, paper-doll version of myself that thinks I am ONLY what I see right here right now… when really we are all far bigger, brighter and more luminous.
Get this… the state of your life right now is a holographic creation of the deeply held perspective within your consciousness. Before you start grappling with feelings of guilt and shame, let me stop you! No, you are not responsible for all the painful things you’ve been through or are going through. But you are responsible for how exactly you choose to receive them.
Do you take the beauty and the pain with open arms of perfect love and perfect trust?
If you can accept the fucked-up, just as much as you can accept the awesome… then you can begin to create magic in your life. Because you become present with the feeling and desire that wells up within you. You let the experience move you, inspire you, transform you…rather than control you.
If I feel contempt for an experience then I cut myself off from the opportunity to grow, thrive and become aligned with my spirit. Just like if you ignore pain in your body… a loud and clear message that something needs your attention… then you forgo the wellness that is on the other side of it. Usually this looks like a decline of vitality and a slipping into a worse situation.
Doesn’t sound fun does it?
But we ALL do it…all the time.
Lets break it down simply!
You can’t change what you ignore or disregard.
If you do not like something then approach it with openness and find-out why it is there. Opposition creates more fragmentation. You give your power away when you step away from the present moment.
When I am dealing with something that is bring me down I sit with it… and ask myself: what part of me is this painful experience actually validating? Something in me wants it! Something in me is creating it or welcoming it. If it wasn’t then it wouldn’t be there.
Once I become clear on exactly how I have conjured this present experience, then I can begin the work of choosing a new experience to create in my life. Great leaps begin from the present stance.
What painful experience are you going through in your life?
What part of you wants that experience?
The pain is feeding a deep desire and simultaneously telling you that you are not paying attention to how you fit into the story. You are the creator, not the character. If you are honest with yourself the whole story shifts.
That’s all for now! Xox, Shaheen

I know I’m always like
Telling everybody you don’t gotta be a victim
Life ain’t always fair, but hell is living in resentment
Your happy ending’s up to you
-Kesha, Learn to Let Go
So I have been over here floating on a song stream of Kesha. Her new album Rainbow has ignited something in my soul. Swooning over her new songs… and just feeling all the power, grace, mastery and immense bravery of her words. This girl has become a woman because she owned her shit, she wears her scars like diamond studded jewels and she seems to really be letting go of the doubt, blame and shame that bundled her in pain…
Anyhow, if you don’t know about her and her journey go check it out. Even if you’re not a fan there is something to learn in her message.
I’m sure if you are a person on this spinning mass we call Earth you’ve experienced your own trails and tribulations and can resonate with anyone who’s been through the fire and came out alive. I know I can… in BIG and small ways.
Lately I have found myself revealing and healing so many shadow parts and un-acknowledge wounds. The hungry ghosts of my past hurts have come back to visit. Here I am being the best host I can… setting the table, pouring warm tea, fluffing pillows and lending a listening ear. What do they have to say?
Well the truth is my hungry ghosts have a lot to say. Their biggest message is that everything is okay. The hurt, the pain, the shame of past experiences have empowered me and fortified me against the storms of life. I know now more than ever how strong I am, how hard life can be and how much magic really lives inside of me.
I can say with complete certainty that I see the world as positive place. Benevolence is everywhere waiting to greet us. We have to extend the offer and welcome in the goodness. My positive outlook on life hasn’t come from an easy road filled with rainbows and butterflies, though there have been plenty of those. No, I have seem many fucked up things in my life, felt the pain of so much anger and misfortune. Guess what? I wouldn’t change any of that if I had the chance.
Specially, when I was a teenager I was the victim of a horrible domestic violence that left my mother and me in the hospital nursing physical, mental and emotional wounds. At 15 I was stabbed in the stomach and fought for my life in a hospital bed for months going in and out of conciseness. Bleeding internally and facing my mortality.
I felt physically weak. Emotionally drained. And spiritually charged. Seeing my fragile body trying to pull itself from the clutches of uncertainty taught me a powerful truth. We are as strong as we want to be. I knew that someone attempted to end my life here on earth… and I wasn’t ready to go. By the grace of Spirit, the love of my family and my own magic I found my way back.
I told myself repeatedly that someone tried to end my life… so I wouldn’t do it for them. I made a declaration right then and there that I would not let hate, anger or sadness rule my life. Every second counts for something and I wanted to make the most… I am making the most of it.
Years have passed since that time and I wear my scars proudly. I was a victim to a something horrible, but victim will never be part of my identity. My mother always told me that you are never given more heartache than you can handle, and I remind myself of that every step of the way. When I look at life from this vantage point I realize just how beautiful the beauty around me is. And how fortunate I am to be able to live and tell, breathe and express myself.
We are here to wear all our pain proudly. Your past does not define you. Your fears do not control you. Your spirit is yours alone to define… so express yourself fully, out loud and completely on purpose.
It isn’t always easy to muster your strength when the weight of the world is on your shoulders. People carry burdens that no one else will ever really understand. This can feel isolating and alienating. So many of us feel silenced and alone. But remember that you are beautiful as you are and you have nothing to hide.
Reach out friends. Make connections and share your story. We are more alike than we are different. If we can venerate that truth healing will set in. I know I sometimes doubt myself and slip into judgment, guilt and personal shame. But then I choose to see the other side. I look for the proof that I am worthy of this life and the love that is always being offered.
Countless times in my life I have died down parts of myself to blend in and gain approval. Whenever I have followed that path its lead to more of the same. Dying inside is just as painful as dying on the outside. But remember you are always at choice… so choose to be grace. Choose to be authentic. Choose to be honest. Choose to be divine.
Self-care and compassion are the bravest acts you an commit in your life. If you need help healing then pull another light into your circle and let them hold space for you. Do everything you have to do to become present in the here and now.
Accept your hungry ghosts… they want to heal you and show you how strong you really are. The process can only begin when you allow it. You have to agree on all levels to go into the unknown and come out on the other side with all your treasures.
My positive outlook doesn’t come from magical thinking, it comes from magical living. I know I am always in the process of healing, discovering and unfolding all the parts of myself. I invite you to step into your process. Take your time. Let go of guilt and shame. They have no place in your life. Don’t give them power. Make the choice to embrace all the parts of yourself.
Own your shit and learn to let go… let go of the self-doubt. Let go of the pain. Let go of the guilt. Let go of the shame. Let go of the disapproval. Let go of the smallness. Let go of the Fear. You don’t have to forget. All of this uncertainty becomes illuminated steps on your journey forward.
Whether by choice or force your pain can teach you. Wear your scars my friend. Be bold, brave and completely beautiful. When you make the choice to see your life as a piece of art the pain and imperfections become the unique expression that makes you captivating.
Always sending love…

Finding your place of power begins by locating your point of pain and resistance. Your healing cannot begin without knowing what hurts, and why. Stepping deep into your pain takes bravery and observance. You must suspend the need to judge before exploring, or turn away before really seeing. Which of course is never an easy task!
Who wants to look at their pain when turning the other way seems much easier? But the pain always crops up again. It will rear its head when you least expect it! Often times, stronger and more tenacious than before.
I have an optimistic outlook. I like to focus on the positive, and look for the silver lining in every dark cloud. Which often is a gift in the darkest of times, but can easily lead me off course, sailing through torrent seas and into resistance… no land in sight, no ground to stand on, and nothing solved.
Before I go further let me explain resistance.
Resistance is when you oppose the natural course and flow of your life, your spirit, your experience and the Universe. Choosing to continue doing something even when it hurts. Not saying goodbye when the time comes. Not honoring the signs that it’s a no go. When you are in resistance to an experience your are in pain! Psychic and emotional pain, that quickly turns into physical pain!
Ignoring a pain is not does not shirk its influence if you are still engaged with the source.
You might view your pain as a weakness. Faced with weakness you begin focusing on your strength. There is immense power in knowing what you are already in the flow with. But only focusing on what is working, does not disengage you from what isn’t. Your life has many areas that make up your whole experience. One might be healthy, vibrant, flowing and expansive. If another area has completely atrophied then your not living whole.
Those atrophied areas are actually blank canvases to activate your innate magic and potential.
Lately I have been working intently on creating more flow, prosperity and creative energy in my life. The more I put my attention on this, the more it seems to grow. The doors fly open, the magic blooms with ease. Which is all good and wonderful.
BUT THEN… I realized that is an easy area for me. The flow comes natural. I am not in resistance to this segment of my life. I began realizing that my intimate relationships needed my attention more. There was/is much healing that can happen there.
So I pivoted in that direction. I sailed straight into the darkness to make peace with the ghosts of past love, loss and connection. With the full knowledge that I am a thriving being capable of making magic happen. Going into this place of resistance allowed me to free up my energy. Now, I can flow even more into the easy areas, and reap the reward of activating these gifts buried in the resistance.
First this was difficult. Facing my fears and holding space for my pain meant I had to be honest, open and completely vulnerable. Vulnerable with what I feel. Vulnerable with what I am in control and not in control of! It was clear to me that I had to say goodbye, set boundaries, and take back my power.
So many of us choose to focus on the good in our lives out of avoidance, rather than gratitude. When you turn away from the areas of your life that aren’t working just to focus on the ones that are, you do yourself a disservice.
Say goodbye by honoring the present dynamic.
Saying goodbye is always tricky. When you decide your relationships with someone no longer works, it instantly feels like you are letting go of that person. That is false! You are saying goodbye to the old idea/connection/role. Letting someone go to become who they are right now, and allowing yourself to do the same doesn’t mean the connection is over. It means the dynamic is now current. The friendship has shifted and you are consciously choosing to engage with that new dynamic, rather than reacting from the old.
Set boundaries for what you want and need in order to thrive.
Setting boundaries means choosing when you will say: Yes and NO. Being clear about what feeds and nourishes your wellbeing is key. Know that when you are nourished in any connection, the other person is going to be equally sustained. We all benefit from each other being our whole selves.
Take back your power by looking to yourself for confirmation, clarity and answers, rather than to something/someone external.
Taking back your power is taking responsibility for your actions. How you act, engage and respond in any situation determines how your power will be invested. This means walking away from a fight. Letting go of the need to get closure from another person. Saying what you feel without incriminating the other person or situation. Standing in the center of your power means taking ownership of your part in the whole play.
You might say: My love life is dead. But at least I have a thriving career, that should be good enough! Right?
Why not activate your love life by seeing where you are in resistance? There is alway potential in the resistant places!
- Where are you in pain and resistance in your life?
- Do you feel prosperous or impoverished with your work, relationships, health or purpose?
- Can you see the roots of your resistance?
- How can you say goodbye or let go to flow more easily?
- How can you have more boundaries?
- How can you take back your power?
- Are you nourishing yourself or depleting yourself?
When I honored myself by doing these 3 things I found so much joy in the moment. The dynamic shifted instantly in a way that opened me up. The situation turned into new possibilities for everyone involved. This meant I could feel the pain, move through those feelings, and get to the other side.
This isn’t an easy process, believe me I know it first hand! Remember: Bravery + Observation = Healing. Give yourself time and space to go through this process. Revisit it again and again. Life is moving and cycling constantly… you can move with it or against it. Weather the storms by feeling the rain, shutter with the thunder and let the dark clouds blanket you. The sun will come out before long..

The Holidays are here and everyone is looking of the perfect gift. Especially for those mystically inclined people in your life. Why not get something beautiful, healing and empowering?
The Sacred Sage and Botanical Bundles are handmade tools for big spiritual change and magic. They are works of art!
Filled with mountain botanicals and sage to invite sacred energy into your space, your life and your heart. This can be lit and the smoke wafted around to create a healing environment. They can be held to release their energetic qualities. You can even keep them in a beautiful dish to add ambiance and magic to the atmosphere.
A Simple Ceremony
When I am in need of inner alchemy and a spiritual lift I light the tip of a bundle. I gently blow into the embers until the bundle glows into life, and her spirit is conjured up in the smoke. I hold the bundle in front of my at heart level, with eyes closed, and I ask for sacred blessings and assistance from Spirit, my guides and my ancestors.
When the moment feels right I begin walking in a counterclockwise circle which is an ancient practice for banishing negative and harmful energies. I spin three times until I return to my original position (usually I face west).
I thank the benevolent forces around me for their help, their guidance and their blessings.
I am surrounded by the vibration of love, healing and infinite blessings. I am held in the arms of Spirit, and I walk in my personal power.
Invite good energy into your own life, or offer one of these bundles as a gift to a dear heart in your life. They are special treasures!
“Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.”― Anne Frank
The world has gone wild, exploded with so much noise… and it has been a long time coming. The social and political climate is something that many of us have grown weary of, and for those who are sensitive to the uncertainty in the world it has become detrimental. But do not lose heart friends… you are in a storm of big, wild, life-changing magic!
You might not see the silver lining in the chaos of the world…notably the President-elect and what that means, but there is some good to be found here.
One thing I have continually seen is that people are finding voice, and showing us who they really are. Love it or hate it… we are seeing a lot of true colors coming out of the shadows and that is the point of power now. When you know what you are dealing with it, you begin to find ways into the places of change.
We are in a time of great shadow work.
We are seeing where the world really is, and all the people in it. We are seeing what people fear, and what they praise. Finding the bedrock of their very souls and learning how to go deeper. The only way to overcome this darkness is to go through it.
What does that mean for you?
You need to show up bigger, brighter, louder and braver than ever before!
As you begin to see what is “wrong” with the world… or at least what apposes you personally… you begin to see where you can shine light, truth and express commitment. For every person that spreads hate, there should be two who spread love. Not to say that gooey, sticky, love-everyone-no-matter-what vibes are going to save the world… I am not talking about sitting down and meditating on your heart chakra.
I am talking about FIERCE LOVE…
Love for yourself and for people to be expressive. I am talking about getting out there and living loudly! Bravely! Burn bright in this crazy world. Let your body drip with so much truth that it hurts.
Battles aren’t won by telling the other side they are wrong. They are won by living your truth in the face of it all. I am suggesting to be vulnerable in the real world. Let your wounds show. Let your fears show. Let your truth show.
Ask yourself right now: How have I been showing up in the world? Have I been brave?
The truest form of protest and rebellion is to be a rebellious soul… A wild heart.
What is the one thing you feel makes you less than?
What is the one thing you see as a weakness?
How are you telling yourself to get over it?
Or to be silent?
I want you to dig deep into your soul and find the parts of you that have been forgotten. Ignored. Told they weren’t acceptable. Some of these things might be obvious or socially relevant in a big way… black lives, women’s rights, LGBTQ.
Or maybe it is more subtle?
FIND IT! Use that as you point of power and your driving force. Whatever you’ve been silenced for your time to talk about it is now!
Believe me I have traveled to the end of life and looked death in the face… and come back. I had some fragile moments out there on the astral edge considering why I needed to thrive. So now everyday is a prayer that my soul is alive in the world. It does’t have to be loud, angry or dramatic… it simply knowing that, despite what others say, even in the face of adversity, you are valuable as you are.
Someone can disagree with your entire existence, but you do not have to believe them. They might be big players in the world… rule makers… but they cannot bend your soul to their will.
If you go silent… they’ve won.
If you walk away… they’ve won.
If you sit this one out… they’ve won.
If you believe them… they’ve won.
Who are “they”… I am not sure. I will let you figure that out.
But here is a clue…
all the voices that are not your own and feel in-authetnic and unsupportive of your unique expression in the world.
If you are living your highest good and allowing others to do the same then keep on keeping on.
Just remember… The only way to find your passion is to look at your pain. And the only way to make peace with your pain is to acknowledge it.
The shadow of this Nation, of this World is alive and hungry. It has reared up and will not settle down easily. You shouldn’t want it to either. These things have existed far too long in the periphery. The only way to create lasting change is to be met with uncertainty. Do not resit this strange shadow… befriend it and find what it can teach you. We are in the midst of a great paradigm shift and what comes next could be bliss… the only way to know is to go forward.
Sending you love from the bottom of my wild, wild heart.
Dark times come knocking on our door when we least expect it. The slow dissent into our personal storm is something that each one of us knows all to well. Some of us find the eye, where we can dance and take refuge, and others become wind swept, weathered and fragile. Finding your way out can seem like an endless task. The harder you push, the harder the darkness pushes back.
What if we stopped trying? What if we slipped into the present darkness and felt every nuance of our pain, our fear and our anger? If you look into the storm and see nothing but an enemy then you are welcoming a fight. But what if the chaos is a wise teacher?
Growing Our Soul
Life gives us many opportunities to grow our souls. To find power and grace. And at the same time to stumble, to fall back and become “stuck”. It is all matter of intention and perspective. When I am wrapped in the arms of the unknown I become a bit claustrophobic. Initially I am met with unease because I know the path is about to become… interesting.
It is oaky to freak out. Let those emotions move through you. A sweet release of fear and uncertainty. Power comes in moments of pure expression… light and dark. Let the darkness move you. Let darkness move through you. Remind yourself that the simplest acts of just being are all that you can expect from yourself.
Dropping the Act
Drop the act of responsibility. As Elizabeth Gilbert says, “Responsibility is what you choose to respond to.” A profound flip of perspective… wouldn’t you say! You don’t have to respond to anything if it doesn’t speak to your soul. There is no rule that says you need to be bound to every single thing that comes your way. In fact, most of those moments when we feel responsible and our head pushes us to say yes… spirit is actually asking you to choose your wellbeing and say NO!
I am choosing to say NO right now to a lot of things. I have to trust the fragility of my spirit as a sign of big growth and deep magic. Magic is the blood of change and miracles. Magic comes silent as the night and wild as the wind. When you invoke her she knows you want something to be different, but isn’t concerned with it being your way… the easy way.
A gift comes in those wild, crazy, chaotic, and completely uncertain moments. You have been given the gift of possibility. Activate your curiosity and fall deeper into the land of shifting faces, and strange events. There is something to be found there.
When I am in the dark… I wisher gently to my shadow… what do you want to show me? Then I see what comes up. What feelings move through me. What thoughts or ideas seem to bubble up. What sensations to have in my body. Your soul is really just trying to get you to stop, and listen. To be!
The Gift of Permission
I am constantly giving myself permission to be with my experience. Time sensitivity is something I battle with. Feeling like I need to get so much done, in so little time. But this idea of time and work and doing is something our analytical mind has created. A powerful assertion of authority from our Solar-ego-self. When really our Lunar-intuitive-self is what needs more love and affection.
Being in the moment is so healing. Just let spirit guide you. Let your Lunar self step forward and move you into that velvet underground where magic happens and curiosity reins supreme. My most healing moments have been found when I let go of control and dance with the unknown.
It is so easy to begin to feel like your life is a prison. Your spine becomes steel. Your mind becomes shackled. Your head is buzzing with tension, expectation, guilt and fear. You are never lost. You are never missing out. More than anything… you might not be paying attention. We forget to be sensitive and perceptive with our needs and desires. Your dreams, your goals, your desires are something that can guide you into your greatness. You are not defeated right now… just a little depleted of your inner resources.
An Exercise in Releasing Tension
Take a few moments to just sit here. Feel these words move through your being. Let your thoughts unwind and do as they will. Then breathe deeply. Sip in the cool air. Let the magic unwind within you, and fill you with light. Tense your whole body from head to toe. Hold it for a second. Then release everything!! RELEASE EVERYTHING!
Do you feel that tingling in your muscles, and the space between your joints?
That is how magic feels! The warm sensation of letting go and letting yourself be. You have rung out your body, but also your have moved energy blocked within your spirit. Do this daily and see what happens.
In that moment of tension when all your muscles were contracted things felt stuck, didn’t they? You felt an ache all over. Maybe you felt unwell. Maybe your head began to pound. Now imagine that your whole life feels that way… because it does when you rage against change. That is the texture and quality of resistant living. You become brittle and break away in the storm until nothing is left but pieces.
It doesn’t have to be that way, beautiful soul. Let your spirit glide forward. You have all the resources within you. You can choose to thrive. You can choose to be magic.
Let me leave you with this powerful affirmation:
My soul steps forward into the dance of life filling me with magic… moving me with grace. I give myself all things that feed my spirit and slip into the place of Divine Design.
Use this affirmation daily. Repeat it to yourself when you are feeling lost, dark, tense or fearful. Good can come if you open to it. Grace is about movement.

“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The latter procedure, however, is disagreeable and therefore not popular.”― C.G. Jung
FEEDING THE SHADOW SELF
Disconnected from our empowerment the shadow (those unloved, unacknowledged parts of us) grows stronger and thrives on more of the same. Rather than interacting with life, we react. Reactionary living is acidic, corrosive and destructive. That is not to say we can live without reaction… It is a human response. It serves to keep us alert and alive. But, you can learn to interact with the world, befriending experience and still remaining safe.
First you must listen to the shadow.
You may say, “Well how do I befriend my shadow?” It’s simple, what are you afraid of? Go there. If you fear talking to strangers, take that feeling deeper and explore why. Maybe that’s why you’ve been unable to meet a partner. Maybe at your core you fear rejection. So take the power back, muster the strength and go talk to someone.
Be bold, be brave and step out there and walk the middle ground. Let your darkness show you something you never knew before, or never wanted to know. If you let it consume you, you become numb, you lose passion, and without passion nothing can live.
So you don’t know how to get past that anxiety. Leap before you think. In that in-between space is where passion lives. That is the instinctual part of you, devoid of ego and preconceived notions. You act from your center, where light and shadow come together like two great streams flowing into a river.
Begin asking, why?
Once you befriend your shadow parts, your pain, you find yourself dancing in the dark. You move into the sacred communion with your light and your shadow. Born of rhythm and fluidity. Because the shadow is not bad, rather it is the unwelcoming of the shadow that causes pain.
Take some time to express to your shadow all that you feel. Be open, honest and candied with your shadow. Express your deepest feelings of pain, disappointment and even resentment.
“What makes night within us may leave stars.” ― Victor Hugo, Ninety-Three
What do you feel about your shadow? What has she done to you? Where have you felt held back in your life? What have you missed out on? Why, and how do you feel small in your life?
Openly express this to your Shadow self.

LAYING YOUR GHOSTS TO REST
You have slipped into the Dark, and surrendered to her groove. Let her pulse through your heart, body and soul. You are losing old parts, and uncovering hidden ones. You are brave enough now for inner alchemy…Soul work!
In this dark, fertile place where transformation begins we must surrender ourselves to the experience. Which means we must move through our cycles of limiting thoughts, and crushing feelings… To get to the more inspired ones. You are detoxing from the high of resistant, fear based living.
“Intense, unexpected suffering passes more quickly than suffering that is apparently bearable; the latter goes on for years and, without our noticing, eats away at our souls, until, one day, we are no longer able to free ourselves from the bitterness and it stays with us for the rest of our lives.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Now is the time for honesty. Come to terms with where you are inside and out. You do not have to be frightened anymore. Don’t deny yourself your sadness, or your rage. Just move into the feeling so that it can be cycled out and returned to the Earth, and the Universe as fertilizer for new intentions.
MOVE INTO THE STORM OF YOUR SHADOW
After breathing into the chaos, the darkness… And asking these questions I find myself growing calmer, clearer and more able to move with the storm. The skies begin to brighten, and the world becomes more serene. My uncertainty and anxiety magnified the storm…. Because the Universe is a big mirror.
I like to move into the storm. Wrap myself in the water. And compassionately ask:
- What do I have left to learn here?
- How can I honor my highest good?

WHERE TO GO FROM HERE?
Your shadow, your darkness, your forgotten hungry ghosts are your friends. They hold bright blessings and paths to healing. You have begun to cultivate awareness. Breathing life and sustenance into these arid, darkened places. Begin to cultivate daily time with yourself. Before the shadow can grow hungry and despondent… you can dialogue with the inner self to find what hurts, what feels wrong and what needs fixing.
The shadow is born when you allow something that opposes your goodness to become your truth!

Card One: My shadow self (the unexpressed, unloved, unacknowledged parts).
Card Two: My light self (the blessed, connected, wise, empowered self).
Card Three: My nourishment (what will feed my soul and grow my light?)
