Review

“Beginning with the premise that people fear their shadow self, this stellar lineup sets out to bring the collective shadow into the light and teach readers how to manage it until it can be dissolved.” (New Age Retailer)

From the Back Cover

Deepak Chopra, Debbie Ford, and Marianne —New York Times bestselling authors and internationally acclaimed teachers—have joined together to share their knowledge on one of the most crucial obstacles to happiness we face—the shadow. These three luminaries, each with a signature approach, bring to light the parts of ourselves we deny but that still direct our life. For it is only when we embrace our shadow that we discover the gifts of our authentic nature.

The shadow exists within all of us. It is a part of us and yet we spend most of our life running from it. But far from being scary, our dark side holds the promise of a better, more fulfilling life. Our shadow makes itself known every day. It is the reason we get furious over a friend showing up ten minutes late, yell at our parents or kids when they have done nothing wrong, and sabotage our own success at the worst possible time. Until we are able to embrace our dualistic nature, we will continue to hurt ourselves and those closest to us and fall short of our potential.

Combining the wisdom of three experts, The Shadow Effect is a practical and profound guide to discovering the gifts of our shadow. These three authors powerfully pierce the veil of our unclaimed self, releasing us from the past and propelling us on a journey to wholeness. No longer living a half life, we are capable of achieving our dreams and reclaiming the happiness that is our birthright.

This book featuring Debbie Ford, Deepak Chopra and Marianne Williamson evolved out of the movie The Shadow Effect: Illuminating the Hidden Power of Your True Self that recently brought the three of them together. While the movie serves as an introduction to the concepts of the shadow and how it limits us as human beings, The Shadow Effect book is a deep exploration of that which most of us have hidden and tried to contain within ourselves. Of the three authors, Ford contributes the most clarity and definition to what the shadow is and how it shows up in our lives. But all share equally valuable information and insightes from their unique perspectives, offering a depth of experience and wisdom on this most vital of topics. Reading this book is both challenging and enlightening. It can be depressing as we learn the truth of who we are, yet hopeful as we discover the power that the comes from healing and integrating the Shadow. This is a must read for anyone committed to supporting a shift in consciousness on the planet.

I've only read the first third of the book--Dr Chopra's contribution--so far. I'd recommend this portion in particular because it is very lucid and speaks in particular to everyone's view of why they don't feel perfect. Since no one can really be perfect and our world of lots of pressure points and the ready supply of off the shelf 'self-improvement' can make you feel even more stressed, depressed, angry or what have you, Dr. Chopra's suggested change in your viewpoint is affirming and helped me just when I needed this change in aspect in my thinking. It's a very constructive writing and I would recommend it highly. I've been working on connection to consciousness and I feel this understanding of the shadow will help me to be at peace with my true self.

Every time I think I am finally starting to understand myself and how my shadows effect me and my world, Debbie writes another book that opens whole new realities for me in my journey to wholeness and transformation. The Shadow Effect is that and more. Having both Deepak and Marianne speak about this critical topic for the world today about its affect on us individually and as a collective gives now meaning to Jung's concept of "whole". This is a must read and allows the reader to experience three of the worlds foremost transformational leaders speak about the most critical topic facing everyone in the world today. Make sure reading this book is at the top of your priority list of things to do. I am reading it again so I don't miss a thing and giving to everyone I love.

I loved this book. It was very interesting to read between the three authors, who all are saying the same thing, yet you can choose which speaks to you personally. It's a great jumping off point to realizing that we are all flawed but there is hope. Carl Jung first gave the Shadow a name, and as Deepak Chopra points out, the Shadow is something we all share not only individually, but with each other as if there is a giant pool we're all swimming, and sometimes drowning in together.

Certainly this book doesn't give a lot of in-depth solutions. Our Shadow is too complicated to fix in just the short space each author is given in this book, but it's easy to see what speaks to us and to research further where we want to go from here.

The point of this book is to show us that our fears, and insecurities are shared and that there is a concrete reason for those fears. Pointing out the Shadow starts us to looking into why we mess up our lives with such regularity, and can be the beginning of our search for freedom. Not that it's not our fault that we make bad choices, but that there is a way to change things, that there's a way towards the light if we can just look at ourselves without illusion.

This book can mean the difference between living the life you want, and continuing to play the old-worn out tapes of the past that sabotage our happiness and from living the life we chose for ourselves. I believe that Shadow-work is so important and this is the kind of book that can set us on the way towards the life we really want to live.

I was going to give it three stars because is was "okay", but I felt that it needed to be rated lower because it doesn't tell you how to resolve your issues. I'm assuming that's what the seminars that you have to pay for are supposed to do. It talks about the dark side of your being and that you have to accept it, but not HOW to do this. It talks about that you have to become whole, but not HOW to become whole. So, if you buy this book, it's like PAYING to read to an infomerical. I'm glad I got it from the library. Of course, my tax dollars paid for it.

Debbie Ford

p.128 self-neglect is a pattern of behavior you must confront. You show up for others, but have no idea how to show up for yourself. Your dreams have been put on hold... you ask, "What kind of person would go after her dreams and not be there for other people?" The answer you hear is "A selfish person." ...religion...bad to be selfish...so you made what you believed to be the right decision- that you would never be that... with that internal commitment, people pleasing became your pattern.

Open your heart to the selfish part of you. Freedom is being able to choose whoever+ whatever we want to be at any moment in our life. If we have to act in a particular way to avoid being something we don't like, we're trapped. We've limited our freedom + robbed ourselves of wholeness. If we can't be lazy or angry, we can't be free when we are reclaiming these parts of our selves... for our own magnificence.

Jung said, "I'd rather be whole than good."

p.130 give up illusion of safety net (of repetitive self sabotaging behavior) for a moment and be willing to feel what's underneath... by becoming intimate with the cast of characters that make up our own internal drama... make peace... if we fail to acknowledge the opposing forces that give rise to these characters... we lose sight of amazing opportunity.

p.131 your job is to bring its complex characters out from the shadow, use their power + potency as sacred fuel to become who you were meant to be in this lifetime. If the villain inside you is angry... exactly what you need to fight against... get back on track to creating an amazing life.
