Responsible Shadow Resolution
How are shadows born
Shadow development is just as natural as ego development. They both are formed in the same process during our development from child to adulthood. This means that everyone has shadow parts in them regardless their awareness of it. Shadow is unconscious and only available for us to work with by observing how it shows up as emotional reactions, dreams and how information flows. What we have taken in, introjected and what we are pushing out, projecting. Projections, introjects and split ego states are the most common shadow types we have. Where ever you are, the shadows are also there present which gives momentary opportunities to notice them.
Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.
How to resolve shadows
To understand how to work with shadows we need awareness, first, accepting the shadows as part of us. Shadow parts are less used than our parts known to us and that is why causing self-resistance if we are unaware of their influence in us. Shadow is like a tree, if you do not work with the roots and only cut the branches, they will come back again.
Responsible Shadow Resolution aims growing up your specific shadow awareness from symptoms, triggers and inner shifts to more holistic root causes’ understanding and finally to resolution of them by creating healthy new states into consciousness. This does not mean you may not ever face new shadows again. All this requires honesty and truthfulness to yourself.
Shadow work can be a messy journey of revelations, if you are ready and able to move on with the process, but it also calls for your patience, persistence, self-compassion, gratitude and allowing yourself to experience discomfort. Evolutionary resolution process gives meaning and purpose to whole being and opens your deeper understanding of wonders of your life.
Unhealed shadows show up in our consciousness and cause harm to us and the others by living in us without us knowing how they mess up our lives and decision making. That is why we are looking for lasting solutions.
My shadow work process 4 + 2 is evolutionary and systemic resolution for healing the resisting energies and bringing back joy and flow of life which enables us to nurture our wholeness or spiritual growth processes as individuals, leaders or organizations and for greater purposes than ourselves.
The typical methods applied are based on developmental psychology, Jungian wisdom, Eastern philosophy and nonviolent communication, but you do not need to know anything beforehand, just radically open mind and willingness to look at yourself honestly, authentically and truthfully are important and being curious of what you still don’t know of yourself.
Shadow work is “Responsible Growth line development”
What is my shadow work like
Shadow work is always transformative coaching and healing in the same time. It’s about being willing to see and give new meaning to issues that we have not valued before and being curious of the excruciating truths that we hold in us and what we might have carried with us all our lives (often unconsciously). Shadow work is also something that you should not take deadly seriously since it can also be a humorous passage to deeper, expanding self-awareness which brings sense of wholeness, purpose and unity.
The coach will listen a lot with unconditionally loving way so that you may express, own, or integrate whatever shadow you are committed to work on. She will guide you through the evolutionary process as far as you can go in detecting the symptoms, triggers, feelings, thoughts, behaviors, and the core seed behind all shadows. This takes depth of intimacy as well as widened or heightened perspectives and also neutral aspects to make change. As the process continues you will also get home practices that help to inquire and sustain the new states and insights being born during the process.
Shadow work also heals organizations by healing the leaders and professionals, because the time and era we live requires us to use our full potential for the mutual benefit. Common purpose, wholeness and other good intentions will not be reached at optimal levels unless hidden factors under surface of our consciousness and organizational awareness are acknowledged, seen, and healed. This is both individual and collective process.
Each unit (induvial or collective) is build by shadow structures like beliefs, limitations, behavior patterns, denial, or other humane flaws which people in general are not well aware of. It is about what we are willing to become aware of and see as us that make prominent shifts in organization work.
Alternative healing for depression
Shadow process is effective way to change direction from seeing oneself from sickness aspect and becoming a powerful owner of own life journey. Many traditional methods may not enhance self-actualization and seeing depression as a soulful message to find a new direction and purpose in life.

“Kirsi on ammattitaitoinen, empaattinen ja aistii hyvin asiakkaan tunnetilan. Sain työstää omia haasteita. Valmennus avasi silmiäni, että miten itse pystyn oikeasti työstämään asioita. Sain valmennuksesta varmuutta tulevaan ja uskon itseen ja omaan tekemiseen. Nyt minulla on usko, että kun tekee töitä sisäisen itsensä kuuntelemisen eteen, silloin moni asia kirkastuu. Koen olevani onnekas, että sain Kirsin valmentajakseni. Hänellä on ote asiakastyöhön ja substanssiosaaminen hallussa. Suosittelen”
“Kirsi on valmentajana asiantunteva, luottamusta herättävä, hänelle on helppo jakaa kokemuksia ja hänen kanssansa on hyvä vuorovaikutus. Hän osaa vastata tarpeisiin ja on joustava. Erityisen hyvää hänen valmennuksessansa olivat visualisoinnit, oma kädenjälki ja persoonallinen ote. Suosittelisin Kirsin valmennusta erityisesti työssäkäyville ja yhteisöille henkilökohtaiseen valmennukseen.”
