Welcome Debi & Roberto and thank you for joining me. Is there anything that you would like to add or share with our listeners, before, we jump into our discussion?
Debi: "I just want to say that you are awesome and this is a great work that you are doing."
Shana: When I was thinking about a topic, “Facing Your Love Shadow” popped up. I thought this was a great title that would allow us to talk about love & the shadow at the same time. Love is a topic that we are interested in, because, we seek it and enjoy talking about it. The shadow represents the hidden thought patterns and/belief systems that are active in our lives that we are not aware of. And any old/hidden thoughts that are still playing in our minds can actually hindering your love live or display self-sabotaging behaviors in our lives. I wanted to focus on the Shadow in the area of Love. Throughout my personal life and observation, I have witnessed many of us have a Love Shadow (s) that we are not aware of. This may show up as a person in a romantic relationship experiencing the same issues (e.g. someone who is emotionally unavailable, needy/clingy, distant, and etc.), but it presented in a different package. And you may have thought to yourself, “Why does the same type of man or woman keep showing up in my life?”
If you desire to be in a healthy, positive, true meaningful loving relationship. And the same person or stuff keep showing up, despite, reading self-help books and other things and witness little or no change. This means on a subconscious level that there is an old love script/message that is still playing that you are not aware of. And this is where the Shadow Work comes in, to help a person uncover that hidden script and to re-write a new one.
Robert or Debi, would either of you mind explaining more in depth about the shadow?
Debi/Robert: … Briefly discuss the shadow (it’s definition, function/purpose). Discuss the shadow in the area of love (Love Shadow) and its effects on people’s love lives. E.g. (love patterns/behavior/thinking, self-sabotaging relationships)…
