We all have inner demons … have you met yours?

Your Shadow is your dark side – the place within you that causes you to feel scared, ashamed, ugly, and unworthy.

Most of us prefer to suppress, deny, and disown our Shadow … to our doom.

When we don’t face our Shadow, it claws its way into our waking reality and manifests through relationship breakdown, addictions, chronic physical illness, self-hatred, alienation, severe mental illness, and disconnection from the Divine.

Are you willing to face what your parents, peers, and society have rejected within you? Are you courageous enough to walk the path less traveled? Do you want to be free? Would you like to finally experience unconditional self-love?

If so, Shadow Work is absolutely essential for you to experience.


The activities presented within this Shadow Work Journal are not for lukewarm spiritual seekers. This Journal will challenge, provoke, trigger, and cause you to dive deep.

If you are not prepared to do deep inner work, this Journal may not be for you. If you aren’t willing to revisit traumas, be brutally honest, and excavate the darkest corners of your shame, please don’t waste any more time. We say this with earnestness: at this point in your journey, this Journal may be too deep and intense. That’s fine. We’re all at different parts of our journey.

This Journal is for those who are in a space where they’re willing to face their demons and experience true bone-deep change and transformation. Please heed our warning and understand the gravity of this work.

Why Shadow Work?

Quite simply, Shadow Work is one of the most genuine and powerful paths towards healing, integration, wholeness, and spiritual illumination.

It was Carl Jung (the psychologist who first wrote about the Shadow) who once said:

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

Simply following the path of “love and light” will not heal you of your wounds. Putting a sparkly feel-good band-aid over everything negative within you won’t make it go away. In order to ascend, we must first descend. In order to be truly joyous, fulfilled, and awakened beings, we must go on a journey into our own personal Underworlds.

Shadow Work is a vital part of the spiritual path because it honors the need to explore and embrace all parts of us. Unlike many spiritual practices out there, Shadow Work doesn’t bypass or escape from the uncomfortable aspects of existence. When doing Shadow Work, we explore everything that makes us feel fearful, angry, sad, hateful, jealous, and guilt-ridden in order to integrate and release it.

Ultimately, without exploring the Shadow, we operate from a lopsided, malnourished, and immature state of consciousness. Only through Shadow Work can we become free to heal, forgive, love, grow, and transform.

I have purchased (or am considering purchasing) multiple Journals on this website. Which one do I do first?

If you’re wanting to simply start your inner work, we recommend beginning with the Inner Child Journal, then the Shadow Work Journal, and finally the Dark Night of the Soul Journal (which you can reserve for particularly difficult periods of life).

On the other hand, if you’re going through a dark and painful time right now, we recommend starting with the Dark Night of the Soul Journal, followed by the Inner Child Journal, and then the Shadow Work Journal.

If you’re mostly focused on love as a vehicle of awakening in this period of your life, we recommend starting with our Twin Flame and Soul Mate Journals, then follow this with the Inner Child, Shadow Work, and Dark Night Journals.

I have downloaded the Journal but it’s not opening.

    An excellent framework for revealing your shadow self. I have done some shadow work before but this is better. You may need to read something about the shadow first, though, if it is new to you, to clarify what the work book is getting at.

    • Mateo Sol

      Thank you Star for your thoughtful review, I appreciate it :). Indeed the shadow journal provides the most benefit as a complimentary resource to the articles we provide on this website on shadow work and the shadow self. I’m glad you enjoyed the framework.

    The Shadow Work Journal has been life saving for me, I needed to look inside at everything to be able to begin to heal. Thank you so much for all the work you do. I also loved your book The Spiritual Awakening Process and I love your articles on the Loner wolf website. It wasn’t so frightening afterall looking within, it was easier to look at what was within than the monster in the dark I imagined it to be.

    First, I need to say that any book you buy from Lonerwolf will be money well spent. The Shadow Work Journal is one of the more recent additions to my collection, and a much needed one. My problem is consistency when keeping up with the work. In any case, I do feel that it is helping. It will help you to illuminate aspects of your subconscious, and ask you to take an in depth look at what is there… This is done in a very compassionate way. I like it.

    I intended to use this in a calendar sort of way, where I do one exercise per day, then repeat the cycle next year.

    Thank you for this excellent book.

    • Aletheia Luna

      Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review, Donald. And what an innovative way to use this journal! This is a fantastic idea. In fact, I think I’ll start doing this! <3

    Utilizing the Shadow Work Journal was like having someone hold your hand through the dark. It helped me explore, uncover and rediscover dark, dusty repressed layers of myself. I’ve always feared what’s lurking around these corners and this journal was THE catalyst to embracing, loving, and releasing fears of my shadow self. I’m not sure I would have gone deep enough into myself without the support of this material. I was also led to practicing Vipassana meditation through purchasing this journal and the two practices combined have been life changing for me on my healing journey. The prompts and guidance this journal brought to me through my journey are true gifts and I have eternal gratitude to Luna and Sol for the ongoing passion and love they bring to others through their work. I highly encourage anyone looking for guidance in their spiritual practice, awakening, or navigating the dark night of the soul, to allow Luna and Sol your trust, as they will guide you with love and light.

    I like Donald’s idea of using the Shadow Work Journal. I’m not very consistent with spiritual stuff so maybe this will help me become more so. I began reading the journal immediately after downloading it, but realized that I needed to figure out a way to focus more on the process and not just read it. I’ve often been willing to look at others and wonder if I have the same shadows; to see that I might have. But to put it in writing… I kept putting it off. I decided it might be ok to just write something down and see how it looked and felt. I have now discovered this Journal is a lovely way to explore yourself and see what turns up. To visit the entries again after some time would be most interesting – to be able to renew the entries would be a good exercise in self reflection. I hope that I can become more courageous about writing down what I feel, and the thoughts that arise as I dig into my shadows. I also want to look into the Vipassanna meditation. I’d never heard of it before this journal.
    Thank you Aletheia and Mateo for your work presented on this site – it’s not unusual for your articles to make me squirm a bit. Of course, those would be the ones I’m drawn to read, lol! A little squirm is good, yes? :-} I think that’s an indication that there is something there that needs attention, understanding and love.
    With love and appreciation,

    The Shadow Work Journal has been an invaluable addition to my toolbox of growth and development on the journey. Luna and Sol bring much value, depth and care to the work. Beautiful photos and inspiring quotations complement the exercises. Remember to be gentle with yourself! as you navigate your fears. Much gratitude to Luna and Sol for all their heartfelt work.

    An excellent journal for those looking to delve into Shadow Work with no idea how to do so. The exercises helped guide me in my shadow work journey with specific questions and free-writing exercises. You’d be surprised by what you discover! I certainly was. And if you’re already familiar with one of your shadows, this could also hope delve deeper into understanding it and integrating it into your whole self. I was already familiar with a few of my shadows, but on a surface level. Through the exercises, I was able to dig deeper and even noticed some patterns between shadows! It also is a good place to store any and all information regarding your shadow selves. Oftentimes, it gets too hard to really see a pattern without writing it down, but this journal ensures you do so. The self-care exercises were also a boon to the journal, as they tended to come at just the right time, after a heavy session of shadow work. Well worth the money I spent and truly a necessary part of anyone’s toolbox.

    • Aletheia Luna

      Thank you so much for your review Beriadanwen. <3 I'm so glad this journal helped you to dig deeper into your shadows while also practicing self-care!

    Lena (verified owner)

    The Shadow Work Journal is a very practical resource. The first step was acknowledging that I do have a shadow self. It’s so much easier to understand how the ego functions as a shadow rather than trying to grasp the ego as a mysterious, separate entity.
    I had been stuck recently on some emotional issues that didn’t seem to make sense, and I couldn’t pinpoint why the issues kept recurring (even though all my hard work had been coming to fruition in other aspects of my life). If a particular technique allows me to be still, and hear and feel negative emotions arise, then I know it is a successful technique. If there are tears, and writing, and acknowledging, then it’s working…and that is what lonerwolf’s Shadow Work Journal has allowed me to do.
    Thank you, Luna and Sol, and particularly for all the supporting articles too.

    • Aletheia Luna

      Thank you for sharing your experience with this journal, Lena. To know that it helps you to sit with and feel your emotions, and process them, means the world to the two of us. <3 May you continue to benefit from it for many years to come!

    Before we can find answers on our our spiritual journey we must know the questions. The Shadow Work Journal was an excellent starting point for asking the sometimes uncomfortable questions we need, to explore our shadow selves. Shedding light into the darkest corners allows us to realize our truth. Thank You for this resource.

      Thank you, Glenn. 🙂

    I love it. I’m still really working my way thru the journal but it has been very helpful. I wish I could just get away for everything and concentrate to make more headway. Work and life keep slowing me down and side tracking me thou.

    • Aletheia Luna

      Thank you Andrea, I’m glad it has been very helpful. Busyness is a plight of modern-day life! Stick with it, even just a little bit each day helps. <3

    Like other publications I’ve read by Loner Wolf, the Shadow Work Journal offers straightforward questions and prompts to bring understanding and insight to difficult work. I love that you have included self-love and self-nurture writing ideas. I am working through the book at my own pace because I know that journaling and self-growth is a process. Thank you!

    • Mateo Sol

      Thank you so much Kathie for your lovely review, I couldn’t agree more about taking your own pace with this type of work. The blossoming process must happen at its own speed, accelerate it even by a moment and it’ll shrivel back up.

    I purchased this Journal when I was going through the Dark Night of the Soul. I figured it would be a good time to go even deeper & get some much needed inner healing done. Being on the Dark Walk (as I call it) allowed me to be more open, resilient, accepting & understanding while I was learning about my Shadow Self. I’m through the Dark Walk but I continue to open this Journal & do a few exercises here & there. I love that I can go at my own pace, repeat some prompts if I feel it’s necessary & just take the time to fully process what I’m learning. I recommend this website to anyone & everyone that asks me for guidance on their Awakening journey. This has become my “go to” for resources & information. I thank you both from the bottom of my heart for what you are doing for everyone.

    • Aletheia Luna

      Yolanda, thank you so much for your beautiful, heart-filled review. It means a lot to the two of us to know that this resource is helping others do deep inner work. Keep up the good work!

    I completed the purchase using PayPal, it would not download. The link message was error message, unable to complete but when I looked In PayPal my money was taken. I contacted immediately but have not heard back from them. Very disappointed in how this is being handled.

    • Mateo Sol

      Dear Lyndalee,

      Thank you for your feedback and I’m sorry you’re having issues with the purchase. I’ve followed up with Joy from our shop support email and I can see she responded to your query yesterday. In this review (and your purchase) you’re using a address but the email address you used to contact us with a one (here’s a screenshot: So Joy has responded to the one, but only today we noticed the email bounced as I assume the gmail address doesn’t exist, I’ve asked her to resend her response from yesterday to your hotmail address.

      I’ve gone ahead and resent you a new receipt as well with fresh download links which hopefully should fix the problem (some email providers have aggressive spam filters which make our download links not work).

      Let me know once you receive it. 🙂

    I highly recommend this journal to everyone! I’m only at the beginning of my spiritual journey and I can’t give this journal enough praise! I have only answered the first question but I have learned so much about myself already! Once I started writing, I couldn’t stop. I ended up filling four pages of my journal with the response to just the first question. I realized so many things about myself as I was writing that I couldn’t believe that I never realized these things before. I look forward to working even more with this journal and seeing where I go on my spiritual path! Thank you for creating something so helpful!!

    This journal is an amazing self help resource.Reflecting on the past and recording those thoughts and experiences over my lifetime there is definitely a pattern in it all. It is much like reorganising a closet. I found the journal very inspiring and quiet confronting . It was all necessary to see reveal the answers to my ponderings. Writing then reviewing was very interesting. I recommended this to a friend and was very perplexed by his response that he isn’t writing anything down to be judged by it. I realised after writing mine this judgement may well be perceived/self imposed. I realised with my review I am my harshest critic. My journal now serves me to be more forgiving of myself and more patient with others and truely appreciate the beautiful world around me. It also cements in me my honest love of nature and animals is exactly what I am ment to be-this coming year 2020 is going to be one of renewal and consideration for my planet, environmental awareness & continuation of giving kindness to animals.

    Never realized how wounded I was as a person until I stared this workbook. I spent my entire life repressing feelings to prove to everyone who hurt me that they weren’t phasing me. I laughed cried prayed and meditated more than ever during this journey and it made me realize how important it is to face my emotions head on. My shadow was so overwhelming that it detached itself from me, to set me free. At first I was blown away.. but now I realize that it was necessary for me to let go. Like a reset button! You all are genius.

    I’m not quite half-way through my Shadow Work Journal and I am so grateful that you created this! I’ve already uncovered some things about myself and begun to feel changes in the way I feel and respond to situations and people around me.

    You helped me make the profound discovery (at least to ME) that my shadow side is not some separate entity that I can deny, but rather a part of me to be embraced and healed and integrated.

    If everyone could get some small percentage of the benefit I’ve already gotten from this journal and the inner work, the world would be a little bit better place.

      Dear Laura,

      Thank you for taking the time to drop a review, I’ve always felt the power of journaling lies in its ability to slow us down enough to reflect on these issues that we otherwise rush over in the day to day life pace. A written meditation if you will, we appreciate the feedback 🙂

    I have to give credit to the 2 spiritual leaders behind this journal. They have given prompts that have forced me to examine and re examine all parts of myself and even to discover and learn to use gifts I didn’t even know I had. I highly recommend this journal for everyone.

    • Mateo Sol

      Thank you so much Tim, it’s a great joy to hear you’ve discovered new parts of yourself through these shadow work exercises. There’s so much to unmask within us that we’re both always amazed at the new depths there is to access. I’m grateful for your vote of confidence in our work :).

    Good product for a great price. It takes some self-discipline to actually go through it and finish. I did only doa small part of it, with interesting realizations. For butoh dancers, this is yet another interesting way to access the shadow for content for your performances. Recommended.

    • Mateo Sol

      Thank you Honza for letting us know how you went. It’s often the case to feel resistant struggle through the journals, especially the shadow one. It’s forcing our conscious self to realize there’s a dark side to it that it doesn’t want to deal with, so it often puts up a fight that requires discipline and a bit of self-love to overcome. I’m glad you managed to muster the strength. 🙂

    This is a great product. Unlike most people I’ve danced with my shadows for quite some time already and I still find new perspectives, insights and tips in this journal. Shadow work is a part of personal growth, spiritual enlightening and mental self-empowerment. You are never done and a journal reminds you of the ongoing work.
    Thank you Luna & Sol for this self-help tool and the awesome content you share on your site. After all I come over all the way from Germany to be inspired by your work.
    Thx, Nadine

    Take care, Nadine

    I appreciate the journal prompts! I wanted to make a comment on the Self Beliefs prompt, no 19. After discovering a negative core belief, I was sort of like “now what”? So I searched your website and found the article “What Are Toxic Core Beliefs? ( 9 Ways to Transform Them)”

    The key is that last part “how to transform them”. Boy did that article REALLY help me. So I just want to put the recommendation out there, if anyone is doing the “core beliefs” excersice and want help with actually changing the core beliefs, pair the exercise with this awesome article.

    Thanks Luna & Sol

    • Mateo Sol

      Thank you Agnes for sharing such a valuable piece of feedback to help someone who may have had a similar experience. All our products are really written to compliment the free content we provide on the website, but it’s grown so big it’s often easy to overlook what you guys may have read or not. I’ll see if there’s some way to refer to the article or include some of it in future revisions of the journal. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. 🙂

    I have loved reading Loner Wolf for many years and benefited from it. In this Covid 19 time, I felt a need to go deep inside my own self. I have done deep work before and tussled with my shadow a few years ago in a dark night of the soul. Some wounded parts have come up recently, so I wanted to do some more shadow work. I am deep in the middle of the journal and really liking it! There are several nre insights. I am a “recovering perfectionist” and it was really interesting that The Fanatic archetype is associated with the perfectionist. If I think about it, it is kind of fanatical to try to do EVERYTHING perfectly. I am making a lot of new connections and having more insights. Highly recommend!

    • Aletheia Luna

      I’m so glad you’ve made new connections and have had more insights thanks to working through this journal, Ritu. Thank you for doing this crucial work, especially during these pivotal times. Much love!

    It’s an amazing book. I haven’t finished it yet. Had to take some breaks, especially when I did the exercise to let my shadow self talk. Wow she was nasty!
    I guess I am my truly my worst critic!
    I’m so glad I found your site. Perfect timing.
    10 years in the dark night of the soul and through that chaos a sudden spiritual awakening!
    I no longer have fibromyalgia which was what took everything from me over 10 years ago.
    Now I know when my pain flares up it’s something I’m not dealing with and once I do it goes away.
    It’s a miracle after severe pain every day for so long. I don’t take any medication for it anymore. It never helped anyway.
    Thank you. I am so grateful

    Amazing. Quite possibly the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and prior to completing this journal, I’d already spent a lot of work on inner-healing and accepting/letting go of my past life/childhood trauma and insecurities. I honestly thought I was doing well, but it turns out I’m nowhere close to self-acceptance. This journal uncovered so much for me and I love that it managed to do so with such gentleness and tenderness. Initially, I was actually really reluctant to buy this, as prior to purchasing I had read several comments about Loner Wolf being “just a blog with no basis on science or anything academic”. For all of you who are hesitating because you’ve read the same comments, I can tell you now that it’s highly untrue. Luna and Sol’s work are so well-researched, well-thought-out and well-assembled. They bring so much value to the body of work that exists in this field and all their work is made with so much love and care. Thank you so much, Luna and Sol.

    Excellent tool! All of Luna & Sol’s tools are fantastic and helpful. Their book – The Spiritual Awakening Process – fantastic!
    I read this book in 2 days, and I’m a slow reader. I just couldn’t stop reading. So much of it resonated/resonates with my situation, with me and my journey thru a 2 year dark night, spiritual awakening, alchemy, and more.
    It brought much understanding and clarity.
    Thank you sincerely Luna & Sol

      Thank you Jas, I think inner child is the best to work with alongside the shadow journal. It’s always important to have that solid foundation of self-love which reconnected with our inner child brings when exploring the depths of our dark side :).

    This Shadow Work Journal is so insightful! It has helped me to recognize my divine simple nature. I am more in touch with why I am the way I am and do the things I do. It also helped to recognize some of the programming I believed for so long. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping propel me on this spiritual journey! It was so clear to me when I started writing and doing the work, what was on my subconcious layer and waiting to be revealed to me in the divine timing I took to take this shadow work head on. Thank you!

    • Mateo Sol

      That’s awesome to hear Amber, it’s amazing what happens when you’re given the task to answer some questions and you honestly have the intention of facing ‘the dragon’ within and feel safe enough to do so. I appreciate your sharing of this experience 🙂

It was time. Thanks, Luna and Sol for guiding me to this door and whispering in my ear as I journey forth.

    It took me my entire life to even know what shadow work is. I always thought that healing meant doing light work, and ignoring and suppressing so many parts of yourself. I’ve learned that shadow work is key to healing, and it allows you to accept , understand and heal all parts of your true self. The shadow work journal is great. I actually went to the website many times contemplating on buying it, and then one day I decided to buy it and I’m glad that I did. I printed my copy at a local store and it’s allowed me to really go within. Some questions are triggering which is obviously an invitation for healing, I appreciate this. Thank you.

    Wow! Wow!Wow! I’ve bought three books of yours so far and they’re high quality works- and helped me so much. But The Shadow Work Journal is truly something! I opted for it as a leap of trust in your work (you’re doing a great job!) but never thought I would be able to let my guard down and honestly access my answers to the guiding questions. Guess what! Right from the first exercise, a core wound of mine (deeply buried inside my shadow) was effortlessly revealed to me! Your instructions helped me go layer by layer to uncover that wound underneath my unhealthy pattern. And now I’m on the new path of healing that wound. I don’t know what your secret ingredient is, but in fact you walk your talk of bringing a down-to-earth spirituality to the world. And it works! I can’t wait to discover all of your other products.

    • Luna & Sol

      Thank you so much Maha! ❤ I’m so glad to hear that this journal has helped you to explore your core wounds, layer by layer. Good on you for daring to lower your guard and for taking a leap of faith! Much love and gratitude.

    Thank you for putting this together. We all need to be called on our BS once in a while. Correction can be good gor the soul when applied with nonjudemental investigation. Why do I think and feel the way I do?
    The questions in this journal are written in a way that invites deep and insightful inquiry. Each section covers areas where we might be struggling. What I have discovered while writing in my answers, much of my thinking was a result of stuff I inherited unconsciously or by watching adults react to situations as a child. When we aren’t sure of how to be, we copy others around us to fit in. Parents, teachers and other authority figures or people we have placed upon pedestals can be powerful influencers.
    Much of it comes down to lessons learned incorrectly.

    I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started working with this journal. What I got was more than what I expected! Diving right in and being honest with myself, I answered the first couple of inquiries, and things began surfacing that I didn’t think mattered, some things I had forgotten about.
    I won’t disclose what that is, it’s of a very personal nature, but there were things that I had not thought much about in many a moon.
    I get it that to be honest with yourself is the #1 goal. I didn’t expect to be so brutal on myself! Ouch!
    I’ve been going through a period the last year or so where things that have happened to me, and things I caused to happen to others, have come bubbling to the surface at unexpected moments. Some of it was frivolous, and some things that are not so frivolous. I found myself ‘tucking’ those thoughts back into that small place where these things hide. But these things do not stay hidden when the soul orders up such thoughts. At least this is how I see this process happening.
    After beginning work with this journal I realized that this is what I’ve been doing for many years now, tucking those uncomfortable thoughts away, not wishing to understand the who what where of it’s nature.
    I’m not going to pour out my shadow’s content here, I’ll leave that private, where such things belong. But I will say this: I’m done carrying all this baggage of many years ago into the next new year. I’ve said and done things that I’m not proud of. I’ve had things done and said to me that those people should not be proud of. I forgave those others years ago, now it’s time to learn to forgive myself.

    This journal is exactly the tool i needed at this time. Like the old saying goes: When the Student is ready, the Master shall appear. Today that Master is the Shadow Work Journal, and I applaud the manner in which it coaxes the Shadow into Light. This was well thought out, and presented very well.

    A word to the wise, if you’re not ready to be honest with yourself, leave this for another time! There is nothing to gain by fooling yourself.

    • Luna & Sol

      Ken, thank you for your courage in doing this crucial work, especially in troubling times like these. We’re so happy that the Journal was illuminating and revealing for you. With gratitude ♡

    I purchased this journal a month ago and found it to be an amazing tool. Not only were the various exercises geared to the different areas of our shadow, but self-love was woven into the journal, so you never forget to look after yourself. Having done shadow work many times over the years, this is the first tool that I have found to not only be beneficial today, but can be re-used at a later date and still be relevant.

    Shadow work journal wow well I won’t lie to you , when I first saw it I thought WTF ….. rip off just stupid questions ( lol the ego need , to be told by some one , what’s wrong) that’s all changed very very quickly this is very powerful, I haven’t finished it yet and will review it again….. already I have found things from my childhood past which still affected me now and I am 53 thats quite a eye opener and gob smacking, the questions are perfect in line to examine the very corners of the shadow and by doing so with meditation….. yea guys you realise , a lot of shit I did and simply blame others for my actions, now with this journal, I could still do it , it gives choice where before I did not think I had one …. slave to the mind so strange how much past events can stick and become part of what I thought I was ….. so yea so far awesome and powerful. Your both awesome for all your work you share . Certainly

    I have been teaching spiritual transformation work for many years including shadow work. I purchased the Shadow Work Journal with the hope of stirring some creative thoughts inside me teaching and personally. It did both. The questions were thought provoking and led to deeper awareness. I think everyone would benefit from working through these questions as I do think an avenue for real growth is through shadow work.

    Soon after retirement, I began to hunger for clarity in my life and in my relationships and I came across an advisor that helped me to connect to that which is, the essence of who we all truly are, each of us part of the light. But it became clear after several months that to be truly awoken, the darkness must also be part of that connection. And this is where things got tricky.
    I picked up Luna & Sol’s Shadow Work Journal and started paying attention to my breath right before I responded to the pages of prompts and exercises. By deliberately exposing myself and my fears, quirks, failures, and shame, I began to see a pattern of behavior that l could then address with more love and understanding. This journal is a journey into those icky memories we push down and down because we don’t want them to define us. Recognizing that thought they don’t define us, but move us closer to our souls’ purpose, was perhaps the most important epiphany gained using this journal.
    I am indeed grateful I came upon it, and have already mentioned it to several friends also seeking personal enlightenment.
    Thank you for your creation!

    Wow. I bought this when my moldavite was on its way to me, which if you don’t know will really ask you to take a hard look at yourself and your shadow self. I LOVE this journal. I am excited to do an entry each day to answer the very thoughtful questions/prompts. I’m working on this together with my therapist, who gives it a thumbs-up too.
    In recent years I’ve gained an uncomfortable amount of awareness about my self, especially my shadow self, but never really knew what to do with that information or how to dig deeper. This book is IT. I have recommended it to all of my friends who are on growth paths, whether those paths are rooted in spirituality or not. LonerWolf is one of my few trusted blogs about spiritual awakening, and buying this book from them specifically was a no-brainer. It’s so affordable too! I will be back for the inner child book once I finish this one. 🙂

    I am working through this journal slowly, as I feel like I am going through the dark night of the soul as well. I easily resonate with what I am reading here. Acknowledging and getting to know those aspects of myself that I have not been willing to see is challenging work. At the age of 66, and having just quick work and moved to another state in Australia, after being in the previous location of 32 years has proved challenging and this work has been very helpful to gain some groundedness in the process.

    I found the Shadow Work Journal crystalized a lot of questions and issues for me that were/are relevant in my life. There is nothing like this available elsewhere. This kind of spiritual working is I believe essential but is too often ignored. “One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious”. C. Jung. There are too many “light courses” available in the wider world of consumer spirituality which are presented by, and attract those, who ignore or are unaware of the fact that “spirituality starts at home!” Self observation, honesty, emotional pain and a host of unpleasant realisations have to be dealt with and the Journal is a useful way of doing this. I wish I’d started sooner.
