09 Feb The shadow effect.
The Shadow Effect is a movie for those craving to become the human being we are so hard looking for. This film tells in an easy and quotidian way the effects of the shadow when we do not make it part of our life.
After watching it, a renewed hope and self-compassion remain, as you have never felt before. And the most fascinating of all is to discover that the darker your shadow, the brighter your LIGHT will be. Dare to take that step to freedom from limiting thoughts and beliefs, find that love that no one else can give you. . . .that for yourself.
In her film debut, The Shadow Effect, Ford presents the hidden power of “the Shadow” alongside some of today’s most provocative thinkers including Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Mark Victor Hansen, James Van Praagh and others.
The Shadow Effect is an emotionally-gripping, visually-compelling docudrama that reveals why suppressed emotions and unresolved internal conflicts leads to behavior that continually unseats politicians, destroys celebrity careers, destabilizes the economy and affects the lives of millions each year.
In this age of public humiliation and media meltdowns, the work of New York Times best selling author, Debbie Ford, continues to make headway as she exposes the opposing forces of both light and dark that compete for attention within every human being.
In this life-altering journey, individuals who have transcended child abuse, racism, the Holocaust, war, and wounded upbringings, share their remarkable stories. Meet those who have learned to face their terror, heal their wounds, and embrace their higher, heroic selves to overcome the shadow effect.
“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. There is no light without shadow and no psychic wholeness without imperfection. To round itself out, life calls not for perfection but for completeness; and for this the “thorn in the flesh” is needed, the suffering of defects without which there is no progress and no ascent.” – Carl G. Jung
Integrating the Shadow is an extraordinary journey that inspires self-love to reach emotional freedom. It gives you the license to be 100% YOU, to find compassion for everything you have judged, criticized or denied.
Reconciling with our shadow involves revealing the gifts and receiving the wisdom hidden within every aspect of us, especially those that embarrass us.
Instead of focusing on our weaknesses, our insignificance, our uncertainties or our anger as enemies or obstacles that limit our lives, this process guides us to transform those allegedly defects into the great powerful masters they really are.
Dare to explore a world plenty of possibilities for a full life, one that opens the door to the joy of living in harmony with your whole self.
Just remember, your life and the whole world are waiting for you!
