Question: My question is regarding the psychological concept of Shadow Work. It would seem this is not too dissimilar from what the masters refer to as: ‘Letting our separate selves die’. Sometimes intense discomfort bordering on pain can accompany this work, in the heart chakra and elsewhere. Are these unpleasant episodes due to the prince of this world still having an inroad in our four lower bodies? Would the masters care to comment on this concept and the related unpleasant episodes one can experience?
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.
Well instead of being too specific here I would like to give a general comment about any kind of healing work and therapy. It is unavoidable that when you are going into the psychology, whether you use this method or that method to probe the subconscious mind, there can be things stirred up that can be quite unpleasant.
In some cases, it can be projections from dark forces that are seeking to scare you from looking into the subconscious, or that are seeking to make it as difficult or as painful as possible. In other cases, it is caused because you have untransmuted fear-based energy, in for example your emotional body. When you go into the subconscious mind you reach this reservoir of this energy, and it can cause pain in your heart chakra, or the chakras, or even in the physical body.
The answer that I want to give in general is, that with any kind of therapy that you engage in as an ascended master student, it is important to make the calls for spiritual protection, to make calls for Astrea to cut you free from the astral plane or lower beings and to make the calls for the Violet Flame to transmute any energy in your four lower bodies, especially the emotional body. If you do the so-to-speak, spiritual work, the alpha aspect of healing, then the Omega aspect of any form of therapy will work better and will be less painful.
