Product Description

Amazon Review

We know the shadow by many names: alter ego, lower self, the dark twin, repressed self, id. Carl Jung once said that the shadow "is the person you would rather not be". But even if you choose to hide your dark side, it will still cast a shadow, according to author Debbie Ford. Rather than reject the seemingly undesirable parts of ourselves, Ford offers advice on how to confront our shadows. Only by owning every aspect of yourself can you achieve harmony and "let your own light shine," she explains. "The purpose of doing shadow work, is to become whole. To end our suffering. To stop hiding ourselves from ourselves. Once we do this we can stop hiding ourselves from the rest of the world."

As threatening as shadow work may seem, it is often very effective in creating transformation. Ford's step-by-step guidebook is modelled on a highly successful course she developed about embracing the shadow. Ultimately, she helps readers illuminate the gifts and strengths that lie within the shadows. Although this may sound vague, clouded in dark metaphors, Ford manages to make it clear and specific. She has the writing gifts of a successful seminar leader--inspirational, trustworthy, and able to convey murky material with grace and ease. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Review

Although I have heard, from probably a dozen differnet sources, "we are all mirrors of each other" and "what we dislike in another is what we have to work on in ourselves", this book was a giant AHA! and I knew that I had finally "gotten it"! Debbie Ford doesn't have to rely on psychology "jargon" - her clear and simple, unvarnished examples and directions are perfect tools to get you where you want to be in your life. If you take her words to heart, I guarantee your view of yourself will change, and you'll never look at your fellow humans in quite the same way, either. Empowerment!

The message here is clear. Reclaim your power and creativity by actively embracing the sides of yourself you deny or dislike. Rather than waste time and energy condemning others, look at yourself for possible faults you may be finding in those around you. In this context, being a whole person is more important than being a "good" person. Being "spiritual" means being fully human, warts and all!
Many examples are given throughout of how judging others negatively is in fact a mirror for one's own perceived negative personality traits. Positive qualities are also often projected onto others and we can reclaim these too. By accepting the whole truth about ourselves we can move forward with a greater sense of self-worth and more love to give to others.
"Do you really want inner peace?" asks Debbie Ford, "If you do its yours. Surrender. Stop fighting. Stop defending. Stop pretending. Stop denying. Stop lying to yourself". Overall this is a powerful read in the territory of the "Conversations With God" books by Neale Donald Walsch who contributes an introduction here. As with many books of this nature, the challenge is to consistently LIVE these ideas!

When you are ready to take full responsibility for your life and quit blaming others for your emotional re-act-ions, and choose to stop depending on therapists and gurus to fix you, this book offers a brilliant tool. It offers to teach you to respond to your emotional reactions and discover what hidden issue the triggering event touched deep within you, and thus resolve it by bringing it to consciousness. It wraps up a lot of things you mostly find in half understood fragments in psychology and self-help literature, and is one of very few truly useful books.

I have read this book many times and consider it one of the most important I have ever read. A clear practical guide to self discovery and acceptance. No jargon, no fudge.

This covers a very important topic really well - how we project qualities on others that we deny in ourself. It uses language that makes it really understandable to the readers of today. I found myself so often being able to relate to her life. It shows so convincingly that we do need to accept and find our dark side and to stop running away from it. This is easy to say and difficult to do but she describes so many imaginative ways of doing just that. These really worked for me. Really useful brilliant book and a brilliant writer I think.

In this easy to read book, Debbie Ford reveals her deep insight in what is called 'Shadow work', ie. accepting the dark side of yourself and seeing the gift in every aspect. Of course, she doesn't resrict the scope to just the dark side, but also remembers to emphasize the importance on accepting our light side, the actual fact that we're all glorious.
It is easy to see that Debbie Ford has been working on this for a long time. She has been learning to accept herself and aspects of being human, and therefore becoming whole. Most importantly, she has been helping others become whole too. That experience shines through in the book and allows her to give deeply luminous examples on how to put the concepts in to use.
A great self-help book. Read it. If there is any aspect of you that you don't like, read it. If there is any aspect you don't think you can own, read it. If you think there is an aspect of someone you know you cannot tolerate, read it. To not do so, you do at your own peril. You might just be passing up a change to be whole and happy.

I heard of this book during an EFT (tapping) program given by Margaret M Lynch, which includes reference to the chakras and getting to understand more about the vows we make in our early years, both from a positive and negative perspective. The phrase "know thyself" springs to mind - we each contain the universe/world, therefore we can express both good and bad behaviours. The goal is to recognise - and more importantly accept - the lessons from both positions. Not always easy but inevitable to our benefit and wholeness.
And if that sounds like pretentiousness....it's about mirroring - when we see a characteristic in someone else we only recognise it because we have that same characteristic in our own make up. The trick is learning to live with the 'good' and the 'bad'.

It's an easy to read book, the messages are insightful and, if you are on your own personal journey of 'enlightenment' (insert your preferred choice of word here), it really is worth a read to expand your perspective.
