Know Your Shadow – The Route to Inner Peace

Know Your Shadow – The Route to Inner Peace with Dr. Robert Masters on the Bear Psychology Radio Show with Dr. Anna Baranowsky.

Have you ever wondered why you said, “yes” when you meant “no” or became enraged by something you recognized later was no big deal?  Does your anger flare up quickly in your relationships or do you ever feel like the world is against you when something minor occurs?  This likely means your inner “demons”,  also referred to as unresolved inner beliefs or YOUR SHADOW, is ruling your life.

We are joined by Shadow Work expert Dr. Robert Masters to discuss what the shadow is, how to work with your unconscious motivators, and how to challenge a spiritual by-pass (when you don’t want to face the difficult stuff in life). In addition to this, we also explore why this work is so important for your growth and how it leads to inner peace.

There is a huge cost to responding like a hurt 7 year old to a work colleague or becoming explosively jealous when you see your spouse/partner enjoying a conversation with someone else.  Great inner growth and peace evolves when you can reflect on why you become triggered/hurt, and become aware of the inner drivers that lead you to feel so bad or become so reactive.

Dr. Robert Masters is an expert in Shadow Work.  He has written and taught extensively on the unconscious drivers that lead to behaviors, attitudes and events that do not serve us.

In his 2018 book “Bringing your Shadow out of the Dark: Breaking free from the hidden forces that drive you”, Master’s explains that “Our Shadow … is our internal storehouse for the parts of us that we’ve disowned or rejected, or are otherwise keeping in the dark”. Dr. Masters is a therapist and “psychospiritual guide” with a deep understanding of the “neglected shadow domains of ourselves”.

Let’s enjoy this conversation with Dr. Robert Augustus Masters and reflect on the deepest places of self-reflection and inner growth, the Shadow.
