"One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious." Carl Jung

The shadow is not just the dark and hidden aspects of our personality, but a source of untapped potential and creativity. It is the part of us that we repress or deny, but that contains valuable insights into our true nature. By integrating our shadow, we can begin the process of becoming whole and complete individuals. 

Drawing the shadow card challenges you to delve into the depths of your own consciousness, to face and integrate your shadow aspects and recognise that it is through this process of self-discovery that you will find wholeness.

Shadow Mantra: I integrate my shadow aspects, finding wholeness and self-discovery.
