You got the Deepest Desire Shadow Archetype
The Deepest Desire Shadow Archetype is most alive for you right now.
What this means is that there is a part of you, that you’ve exiled to shame island that is ready to come back into wholeness, that is ready to be embodied.
How this block is likely showing up for you in your day-to-day life is around your thoughts and beliefs about what is possible for you. You’ve either been so focused on your day-to-day that you haven’t allowed yourself to dream or deeply desire… or you feel like “who am I to want more, I SHOULD be grateful for what I have.”
This block / shadow is coming up now because it’s ready to be integrated. It’s time to make the impossible possible, it’s time to drop the logical and step more fully into the magical. Working with shadow means that you bring this into your body and you feel what wholeness feels like in your body.
You have these deeper desires for a reason and it’s so important to allow yourself to day dream about bigger, better and more magical things so that you can live your soul-aligned life.
Carl Jung says “Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. At all counts, it forms an unconscious snag, thwarting our most well-meant intentions.”
You are ready to drop the struggle around feeling like you can’t have what you want. You are ready to release the subconscious beliefs that other people get to live their dreams… but, not you. Notice what physical sensations come up for you when you think about this. Where do you feel it in your body?
Control is a big theme with this shadow – Do you feel like if you let go of control your life will crumble? Who would you be if you let go of control?
