Shadow Reflections

This is a photo of my own shadow, taken in California the weekend of my SoulCollage® Facilitator's training in 2007.  The more I reflect upon the energy of this Card, I am fascinated to see that my shadow, has a shadow!...which shows up...hovering on the right side of my body. During a reading with this Card about a year ago, it was revealed that the shadow of my shadow is my "Shadow Essence".  Webster's defines essence as: "The basic nature of a thing. The quality or qualities that make a thing what it is."  I exhale.  A gentle smile emerges. I glow at the mystery of it all: "the essence of my shadow".  What a holy moment for me, to glimpse and realize the reality of it all.  It feels good. In some inexplicable feels safe and comforting.  My Sunday morning reading with this card revealed:

I am the one who is with you always...seeing and feeling all you go through and do.  I am the one who sees what you might not consciously see, and feel.  I have a unique point of view. I see you. You are me and I am you.

My message to you today is:  Don't be afraid of the shadow side.  I have gifts that your mind might not "get" right away.  Gentle reflection and awareness of me brings deeper insight and appreciation.  There is more to me than you realize.  I am your Shadow...and the Essence of your Shadow; an integral part of you.   You are doubly-sealed with this sometimes mysterious, yet compassionate energy. There is nothing to fear. My insights and wisdom for you simply come in a different way...a different point of view from what you're accustomed to. See from that different point of view.  I am here supporting and balancing your wholeness.  It's all to make you wiser and take you deeper into your own self-knowledge and mastery.  Love me.  Love you.
