Our Shadow Presentation

  1. 1. Magical different glasses: our shadows Cristina Campofreddo, PCC
  2. 2. The lessons from my Shadow  We cannot recognize our own shadow, we need to commit ourselves, explore and search for it: we need to reclaim our whole self.  We need to acknowledge the power of our shadow in order to be able to deal with it  We don’t need to defeat the shadow, we do not need to win over it. We need to embrace our shadow because we have only one Self, which is beyond good and evil.  The healing of the world will emerge not from our changing and correcting others, but from our willingness to change and correct ourselves Cristina Campofreddo, PCC 2
  3. 3. The little I know about my Shadow When I open the Pandora’s box of my shadow, the opposite of what I fear I will experience is what actually occur . shame  compassion . embarrassment  courage . limitation  freedom I step out of the illusion that my darkness will overtake me and instead I can see the world in a different light. Embracing the shadow allows us to be whole, to be real, to take back our power, to unleash our passion, and to realize our dreams. 3 Cristina Campofreddo, PCC
  4. 4. We create our shadow Everything we experience in life is a manifestation of the Soul and it is the result of contrast. You have no experience in the absence of contrast  in order to have manifestation, you need opposing energies. The shadow is a human creation. Like everything in life, creating the shadow is a process. 4 Cristina Campofreddo, PCC
  5. 5. When can the shadow emerge? Whenever any aspect of the self has been split off, labeled as bad, guilty, shameful, illicit or wrong, then the shadow gains power. The main ingredients we used in creating the world and our shadow: - secrecy - guilt and shame - blame - projection - separation - struggle The shadow traps us in two ways: - it keeps us unconscious - it erupts with incredible power whenever it wants to The shadow loses its power when consciousness stops being divided. Cristina Campofreddo, PCC 5
  6. 6. How can we stop fueling the shadow?  Letting go what we think we know  Being aware that we all use projection and stop projecting  Acknowledging our feelings, detach from negativity and let go  Giving ourselves the permission to be who we are  Nourishing our emotional body, becoming more whole  ? ….. Wholeness overcomes the shadow by absorbing it. Wholeness and healing are intimately connected. 6 ‘You are not in the world, the world is in you’ (Vedic Widsom) Cristina Campofreddo, PCC
  7. 7. The gifts from our shadow  The shadow contains essential characters in the script of our life  It gives us the chance to forgive ourselves for possessing ALL the human qualities: we can use them any time we need them  Our shadow also includes the positive qualities we have hidden away together with our ‘darkness’  …… 7 The Shadow is the source of almost every challenge worth facing Cristina Campofreddo, PCC
  8. 8. Answers we can find together  Think of an aspect of our lives and in this world which does not have an opposite pole  What is your definition of Shadow?  How can our shadow as a coach emerge? How can we become aware of that?  How our shadow ‘informs us’?  How can we find the ‘level of the Soul’ in our coaching sessions? 8 Undoing the shadow is always a process Cristina Campofreddo, PCC
