Happy Libra season! Shadow work is a passion of mine and something I love to talk about and share ways to start doing the work as shadow work is a journey.
You may be feeling more called to do this healing work right now.
Shadow work is the truest form of self-love there is as it’s about embracing ALL OF OURSELVES, both light and shadow.
I created some shadow work journal prompts for Virgo season in the last post and now I am launching ones for Libra season. I love journal prompts for shadow work beginners or those who are looking to incorporate regular journal work into their shadow work.
We all have a shadow side, it’s part of our human experience! But we can tend to ignore and repress our shadow side which can cause a lot of triggers and harm in our lives and being authentic. Shadow work is so important as part of a spiritual journey. While first getting into it can be uncomfortable and you may find yourself wanting to avoid it but it brings so much clarity and love into your life. The more shadow work you do the easier it is to notice your shadow side and honor it accordingly. In my opinion, shadow work is the truest form of self-love, as it’s about loving and accepting ALL OF YOURSELF.
As a precaution, these journal prompts may cause triggers. If you feel triggered by a certain prompt you probably need to focus on that one the most. I strongly suggest shadow work for those who feel ready to dive into this and are getting the mental health support they need in addition to doing their shadow work. Shadow work is NOT a replacement for therapy but it can be a great addition.
I have found shadow work helps me streamline my therapy sessions and supports me in-between therapy and other healing work I receive.
Allow these prompts to be a guide for you. You may find yourself being drawn to only one or certain aspects of them and that’s ok! They may even lead you to write more prompts for yourself. Write your heart and feelings out and allow your shadow side to guide you on what healing and work needs to be done.
