shadow work:  Healing Crystals for  Shadow Work

Darkness is in all of us, and we can't change that. Everywhere where is light, there is always darkness on the opposite side. Shadow work is the conscious reintegration of the parts of yourself that are hidden inside of us because our ego doesn't want to accept them. In psychology, shadows are parts of us that we are unaware of, or we don't want to be aware of so our ego is pushing these parts into the shadow. Usually, they are dark, negative human emotions like greed, a hunger for power, pain, insecurities, etc. When we access these memories or emotional parts of our being, we will be able to face our traumas and heal them thanks to shadow work. In other words, we can transmute our darkness into light.

Healing Crystals for Shadow Work

Shadow work is one of the parts of spiritual healing and growth. However, due to unpleasant emotions that we need to face during the shadow work sessions, it's not so popular among usual healing techniques. Shadow work is not an easy process of healing. It might be a bit hard to explore your shadow self because it will force you to face your hidden emotions, memories that are deeply hidden in your shadow. To live a balanced life, we need to accept ourselves with the good, the bad, and everything in between. Shadow work sessions will help you get rid of past traumas and triggers, heal emotional wounds, and transform us into emotionally stable versions of ourselves.

Some crystals can help us make our shadow work journey easier.
