can be like a nebulous dark cloud or
fogginess that can surround and permeate a beings energy, consciousness
and vibrational fields, thereby blocking the spiritual sun
of their higher consciousness from fully shining out
into the world. "Shadows" hide within and as ones' "blind spots" where
our conscious mind cannot see into or through. Shadows may be created
from "split off" traumatized aspects of the psyche and thus have a
consciousness and self identity of their own containing unrealized
desires, feelings, motivations and
dreams. When least expected, the shadow self may jump out the
depths of the hidden subconscious into everyday life, and
uncontrollably say or do things far out of
ones normal character. People who drink alcohol or take certain drugs
experience this phenomena, often having no recollection of what
happened the next day... as if that memory was lost... but really just
tucked away, safely
suppressed within the "closet of the subconscious" (along with its
suppressed memories held within the subconscious
mind (even those from past lives) can be retrieved through such tools
as hypnosis, meditation and certain halucinogens, awareness alone does
resolve, heal or clear the energies
experiences. The initial onset (and repetition) of trauma may have been
painful, confusing and overwhelming, that the soul chose to not only
suppress and separate out the memories.. but quarantine (like a computer anti-virus) and
compress down (like a "zip drive") the
energies of these traumas... and the traumatized parts of its very own
soul... into the vast multi-dimensional energy matrix of the body-mind.
An awareness of these traumas may
be a good first step, but since they are deeply held and locked down into this vast and complex
matrix, some sort of energy (and soul retrieval) work must be utilized
to completely clear and restore the body-mind (and soul) back to a
point of original integrity.
In the process of suppressing or
rejecting the energies and soul parts engaged in these traumatic experiences, the soul broke or "disassociated" itself
from any conscious-energetic links it may have had to them (burning your
bridges so to speak). At
the time of its
occurrence, the soul may not have had the energetic, spiritual,
psychological resources to turn the information and energy of the
trauma into something useful (nor may it have those resources even
now). But once this event has come and gone - even if the soul is now
willing to reclaim and restore into wholeness the separated parts of
its self and power, ones
ego-mind (and shadow self) may be in such resistance (so wrapped up in
supporting and perpetuating these holding patterns) that there is no
available psychic energy
left to "decompress" (or transform) them back into pure energy...
nor enough soul resources left to help liberate whatever parts of
itself is therein trapped. The easiest (and most expedient)
solution to reversing this situation is to find a healer who can assist
you into "un-zipping" your body-mind-energy matrix and "re-associating"
your lost soul parts.
is a law of physics which states that "energy cannot be created or
destroyed, only transformed from one form to another". Stuff dwelling
within the body-mind matrix - and ones shadow - is like a piece of wood
- there is tremendous "potential" energy
stored within, but in this dense form it will take a tremendously
powerful, spiritually "kinetic" energetic catalyst or event to
transmute the "wood" (all your suppressed and condensed traumatic
back into its original form as pure light energy (and if a
big log, then it first has to be broken up into little tiny pieces
can burn). It is said "it takes money to make money", and it would also
be accurate to say that "it takes energy to transform energy". So the
question is - where do you get the extra energy to catalyze and
transform yourself with? Again, the easiest (and most expedient)
solution is to find a healer who can add his spark (or torch) and
"catalyze" you into transforming your subconscious "logs" (traumas and
into a burning flame.
The good news is that (according to these same laws of physics) all the
energies you put into the transformational equation
you will get out - it all ads up in the end - there are no wasted
energies, there are no wasted efforts.
matter how spiritually advanced or clear we think we are,
we all have our “blind spots” – those
unconscious areas of our energy field (which we are in denial about
and avoid at all costs) where we have stored our
"shadow self" and its “nasty” and unpleasant “stuff”. However, this (and more) is all part of the game of being human - we
get "stuff" to work out. So like it or not, we have to deal with it the
best way we can, by ourselves or with the help of others.
less you be judged"
"Beware the beam in your own eye"
you judge or condemn about others is a reflection of what is stored
in your own body-mind-energy field. This dark area and
its vibrationally dense energies are known as "the shadow". The
consciousness attached to this “shadow” (those
subconscious/unconscious states of the ego-mind) are called the
“shadow self”. The tendency or natural inclination
of this “shadow self” is to "project" itself out into the world, never
taking personal responsibility, always blaming others (ie, “laying your
trip”, “throwing your sh-t”).
Looking at the world from behind this "shadow" is like wearing dark sun glasses - everything you see
appears to be dark. Over time, if you didn’t know this
darkness was caused by the glasses worn (the shadow) you
would eventually come to believe that the world was dark. Unfortunately, projections of
the “shadow self” are very common and are one of the
most insidious saboteurs of healthy loving relationships.
is illustrated in the meaning and history of the word "scapegoat". The scapegoat
concept originated in biblical times where every year the priests would
mysteriously gather up the "sins" (shadows) of the people... and
project (transfer) them upon a goat who would then be let loose into
the wilds. (Jesus did this with someone whom a legion of entities had
possessed, transferring them to pigs).
all have this ability to project, dump or transfer... the unwanted
energies and aspects of ourselves upon others, making them our
scapegoats. To differing degrees of "success", some of our
may just touch the periphery of anothers energy
field and bounce off, and other times it can penetrate
much deeper into their very heart and stay rooted. If an
individual has an intact and healthy sense of self, as well as a very
strong energy field (without any holes or tears) they can walk away
this encounter unscathed. Whereas another person who has a shattered
sense of self, a lowered level of awareness, and a weak energy field
(with many holes and tears) may be vulnerable to such attacks,
inadvertently taking this stuff in. Unfortunately, children have not
had the time to develop an intact energy field and healthy self of
self, so they are the most vulnerable to the projections from those
they associate with, are cared for and are loved by, and thus their
wounds are deeply layed into the fundamental matrix of their being,
carried over into adulthood and passed on to the next generation.
Taking responsibility for (working on) our stuff insures that our
children or those others we associate with and love (our spouses for
ex), do not have to suffer the burden of our stuff.
Another example of this “projecting” is found in
co-dependent relationships. Irregardless of outward sex, everyone
carries within them some innate qualities and mental constructs of both
"male" and "female". However, our culture has its own ideas what men
and women are to look and act like. To fit society’s model, a
woman may reject or dissociate herself from her "masculine" qualities
(such as strength, logic, reason, intellect) and "project" them out
onto a real or imagined "outer man".
Likewise, a man may do the same with his own "feminine" qualities (such
as being loving, gentle, compassionate, feeling, nurturing) and in turn
project them onto this “outer woman”. Some segments
of society have long indoctrinated us into believing that this polarity or divergence of the sexes is
normal, whereas I believe it is quite the opposite - being the epitome of self
"disempowerment" (but perhaps that is what these same segments of
society are trying to do - disempower us?). This pattern will always
set us up for a big disappointment – no one can honestly or
consistently take on or manifest these aspects of self that have
been rejected and projected out. This "trade off" (a "karmic contract"
or “agreement” of sorts) defines co-dependent
relationships. Unfortunately, if our inherent original qualities are not
restored and fully embraced, in time, this hole in the psyche
will be filled with something that doesn’t belong - a simulacrum of its former self - perhaps devolving into an
independent "Shadow Self" with a consciousness, ego and will of its
own. Since these shadow selves usually reside on the periphery of our
conscious awareness (and to some degree, are a part of, yet separate
from our energy field) we may have no clue that we even have a
shadow self. However, others can more easily be aware of and be
affected by our shadow (especially when it is being projected onto
them). Additionally, since this shadow often precedes us (standing
between us and the world) another’s perceptions may
be tainted as they look at us - seeing this shadow instead. Since
these aspects were created by and are still a part of us, we
ultimately have karmic responsibility for them and all that they do.

can be many different sorts of spiritual energetic contracts:
some "good" - the "God Contracts" and “Karmic
some "bad" - the co-dependent “Karmic Relationships”
and some "evil" – the "Demonic” or “Dark
later is where the phrase "selling your soul" comes from.
The main difference I see between bad and evil contracts is in the
degree and depth of how much of your self you gave or traded away. Most people in
codependent relationships (esp formed within just one lifetime) hardly get to the point where they give up
the depths of their very soul to another, giving instead psychic
aspects, energies and qualities (but for soul mates... this is another matter, much more serious).
may give fully of love and
share the depths of ones soul to another, but if you actually
“give up” your heart and soul to another... this is planting the seeds of a dark contract to form, and
time to be taken over by demonic control. Fortunately, this is not an
easy thing to do and doesn’t happen too much anymore in this more enlightened day and
am speaking of black magic of course, which is very rare to see now in
full blown state, but it does (commonly) exist in smaller
degree (a carry over I think from past lifetimes when where the soul
dwelt within the darker dimensions and played with forbidden knowledge).
a person relinquishes their heart and soul to another, it’s often done in
reaction to something so discomforting and painful that you
don’t want to feel it.
rejecting parts of ones soul, one is diminishing ones ability to be
fully aware, and not being aware, we can be manipulated and controlled
(and though you may believe it or not, there are some very nasty
spirits out there who are looking for souls who are not awake and
present in their own lives).
you were one of these souls who had given up your heart and soul
to another being (for whatever reason) it may not have felt problematic
to you, at first - since you were a willing participant in the deal,
must have got what you wanted (ignorance blindness, numbness,
insensitivity). Since the universe abhors a vacuum, so too does our
hearts and souls (or at least the place where they used to be) and
something must eventually come to fill these empty holes. Where Love
once was, fear, anger, loathing and hate comes in to take its place. If
we reject Truth and Light, we are embraced by
ignorance and those beings
who play in the darkest night. If we reject the friends of light, the
enemies of light become our friends. And with all
“friends”, we begin to make agreements and
contracts that hold us together (even with beings who would eat and
tear us to pieces). Yet in our fear and ignorance, we have not many

we do, say or think can seem whimsical – impulsive
– rising up from some unknown place for some unknown
reason... but what’s this got to do with anything?
A lot of our impulses come from imprinted mannerisms and subconscious
thoughts we picked up from our parents, friends, teachers (anyone
from our past).
Some may be evolutionary, instinctual or organically hard wired in our
genetic patterning (given to us by our ancestors).
Some of our impulses are dietary or chemically driven
(drink enough coffee or
sweetened colas and you will be bouncing off the walls).
A surprising amount of our impulses comes as a result
of influences from the spirit world (perhaps not even from our own
From my research into the paranormal and from working intimately with
individuals and groups, I have found that many people are influenced by
spirit beings who live around them in the spirit worlds. Depending on
their level (and the level from which you are open and listening from)
these spirit beings are sending either beneficial or detrimental
guidance to you. Most people impulsively follow through with these
promptings from spirit (that invisible world) never questioning where
these impulses come from - nor if it is working for or against
one have conflicting impulses? Certainly. If one impulse tells you to
turn left and another to go right, one may lead you into an accident
and the other to safety (or something like that). Our lives are
determined by these choices we make - some of them apparently quite
small (a left or a right). We need to be able to differentiate if these
impulses are coming from a clear and true place (or not). The spirit
beings around us are constantly whispering into our subconscious ears
and hearts, giving us guidance and feelings. Many of these spirit
beings have differences of opinion... and the results are
conflicting impulses pulling us in different directions. If some of
these impulses are coming from negative entities (or evil spirits)
around, within, or corded to us, we could be in big trouble. In order
to access the clearest impulses (the highest guidance that can work for
us) we need to be freed of these lower level entities. These hidden
impulses (and the lower spirits from which they come) tamper
with our ability and free will to choose our own destinies. Having
sabotaged our lives - our relationships, our prosperity, our peace, our
happiness – these negative spirits try to distort our
perceptions. They veil our sense of reality to the point where we do
not even realize who they are or what they are doing to us - we are
ignorant and do not even know. It is imperative that we become free
of these "monkeys on our backs" so that we may get on with living as
our true Spirit Self intended.
