9780062517821: The Secret of the Shadow: The Power of Owning Your Whole Story

The personal experiences of our lives can often cause us to reassess our self-perception. But for some of us, these encounters can also instil negative beliefs which are adopted as true facts about ourselves. We condition our lives according to the limits imposed by these 'shadow beliefs', and our lives become a shadow story.

Continuing the shadow work that made her a success with DARK SIDE OF THE LIGHT CHASERS, Debbie Ford explains how each of our life-defining events is experienced for a reason, allowing us to lead a life of direction and purpose. In this inspirational, solution-driven guide she provides a complete plan for release, and shows that if we stop viewing these events as obstacles, and instead embrace them as essential ingredients for our life's direction, then we banish our shadow story and unlock the passage to freedom.

Book Description HarperOne, 2001. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. First Edition-First Printing with full number line.Summary: In The Secret of the Shadow bestselling author Debbie Ford shows us how to rediscover our true essence, which is hidden in the shadows of our own dramatic life stories. In her blockbuster The Dark Side of the Light Chasers Ford introduced us to our "shadow." Now she uncovers our "Story", the collection of beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors that prevent us from having all the love, happiness, and success we desire. She guides us to understand that bidden in the shadow of our stories is our magnificence, and our unique gift. The Secret of the Shadow shows that the stories we tell ourselves about our lives do not define who we truly are. In fact, they prevent us from grasping our purpose and potential. When we live in these stories we engage in noisy internal dialogues, self-defeating habits, and abusive behaviors. But once they are understood and processed, our traumas and failures, our pain and our discontent, will take us deep inside and return us to our Divine essence. Our personal dramas contain important information and wisdom that can help us discover our essential selves and true purpose in life. The process of making peace with our stories requires us to identify, understand, accept, and embrace everything in our past that has caused us pain. In order for us to heal, we must stop chasing what Ford calls "the feel-good moments" and embark on the extraordinary journey of loving and embracing all that we are. The process outlined in this book offers us a way out of the never-ending cycle of pain and discontent. Whether we suffer from depression, ill health, a sense of unworthiness, arrogance, or low self-esteem, the road to heating is the same. This clear process (including action steps and contemplations in each chapter) will help you to discover your unique purpose and realize the fulfillment of your deepest desires. As we make the inner journey of embracing our story and all its ingredients, we begin to see the life that lies ahead of us, a life that will give us the gift of our eternal selves.
