“Love Withdrawn” Shadow Archetype



“Love Withdrawn”  Shadow Archetype

You feel a perpetual sense of numbness. When you do feel, you get swallowed into the emptiness , and you are secretly terrified of this black hole. Your defense is to shut down, self-isolate, and protect others from your whirlwind of negative emotions. You don’t trust yourself because your emotions come and go and are unpredictable. You feel like you are inadequately prepared to live in this world let alone help another human being survive in this world as well. You are just barely surviving. She has been getting frustrated with herself because she cannot control her mood. You blame yourself for feeling depressed most of the time. You feel so alone, you feel like you have to do it all alone, you don’t trust anyone’s help because you don’t believe anyone’s help could actually help.  You see the things happening around you but it almost has no weight, depth, or meaning. It feels almost like an out of body sensation as if you are a third party observer to your own life.  You are detached, numb, distant, and disassociated.

Integrating Shadow and Spirit

Every Shadow has its twin Spirit: Shadow Integration is the ability to illuminate and bring together both your shadow and your spirit so the power of choice will be returned to you, the soul who chooses.

The Love Within Spirit

The Love Within Spirit is someone who sources the spirit within for deeper meaning, revelation, and truths. You hunger for truth. You hunger for depth. You hunger for meaning. You believe that there is a Divine Purpose in this process you are going through, whether good or bad, happy or sad, up or down. You believe in integras, which is the concept of light and shadow as all encompassing, integrated, whole, the full authenticity of the human experience. You realize that to become a butterfly, you must first go through the internal fire of transformation in the cocoon, in privacy, in divine intimacy, in order for you to source a deeper kind of power that evolves through a divine connection. You know the practicality of meditation, the power of stillness, the discipline of loving oneself as first priority. You are awakening to showing up for the present moment—always the present moment, because you realize that the only control you have is how you perceive the present moment. This becomes your grounding. This becomes your root. You are so in tune with the root because you realize that the deeper the roots the more lush, plush, and brilliant the fruits. You trust in Universal Timing by aligning your will with Universe’s will on its divine timing of when and where to bear your fruits. You know intuitively that it starts with the roots.

Shadow Work Act One Program Starter

The Shadow Work Series is designed to help you transform pain into creative expression so you may discern your true desire from your false one.  The Act One Program Starter series is part of The Producer’s Playbook program, giving you the full lessons on Shadow Work, but delivering it bite-sized to you, through the Mystery of Love revealing in 1 Corinthians 13:12: 

For now we see a reflection, as in a mirror, then we shall see face to face. For now I know in part, then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

Our Commitment: 

Reveal, Deal, Feel, & Heal

Dear Journal-Artist,

Shadow Work can be quite daunting.

When you are faced with tragedy, sometimes that downward spiral down the black hole seems unending.

The world has moved on while your world has frozen in time.

We believe that ghosts will haunt until they are heard.

The Love Story Organization is designed to help you hear the ghosts of your past so that your shadow self, once elusive, now becomes clear, illuminating the parts that needed to express itself, telling you the parts of your story you weren’t yet ready to face at the time (maybe because it was too painful).

Now is the time, because the pain of stagnation has now become greater than the pain of spiritual, emotional, and personal growth.

We will move you through your own Shadow Work process by providing you with a spiritual weapon, a sword of the spirit, blessed by The Holy Spirit, revealed in the Mystery of Love in 1 Corinthians 13:12 when acted upon:

For now we see a reflection, as in a mirror, then we shall see face to face. For now I know in part, then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

Shadow work is not meant to be done alone. There is a reason why humans must connect. We are designed to love and love is always a connection between two or more divine souls. You are not meant to be isolated, frustrated, and disconnected. You are meant to be interconnected, validated, respected, and liberated.

Shadow work is validating the pain of your past.

Shadow work is designed to bring the soul and the spirit together in compassion because compassion by virtue means to suffer with.

Shadow work is the process of respecting your self because respect is always grounded upon truth and integrating the shadow is the complete truth (the yin and the yang) to the human experience.

Shadow work is the beginning of setting you free because the aim of shadow work is shadow integration. The completion of shadow work is to know good and bad and to exercise your free will in choosing the path that leads to your spiritual freedom.

The shadow is the yin to the yang.

To know your shadow self is to have compassion for the full spectrum that makes you.

The truth is the integrated shadow state, light and dark.

May the truth set you free.

Love & Blessings,

Mingjie Zhai

Journal-Artist & Founder

“For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.” – Cynthia Occelli
