Those thoughts that we want to ignore arise from our shadow which contains all of our deeply embedded self limiting beliefs. When we find ourselves dealing with extreme or otherwise uncomfortable emotion, it’s helpful to look into the thought pattern to discover the underlying belief.
When we can forgive ourselves for creating that belief, we cantransform and heal the cause of our disturbing thoughts. But as long as we continue to ignore those thoughts, the shadow progressively gains power – resulting in more disturbing thought patterns.
Irrespective of our ability to redirect our thoughts, the shadow’s power can only be dissolved through exposure to the light of awareness.
