|You must go into the dark in order to bring forth your light. When we suppress any feeling or impulse, we are also suppressing its polar opposite. If we deny our ugliness, we lessen our beauty. If we deny our fear, we minimize our courage. If we deny our greed, we also reduce our generosity. Our full magnitude is more than most of us can ever imagine.” - From The Dark Side of the Light Chasers, May 1998|
In this #1 New York Times best-seller, Debbie examines the fascinating process of projection - whereby we transfer our own unwanted qualities onto others - and demonstrates how our darkest tendencies, when embraced, can be used to fuel our dreams. You may literally feel your shoulders and your anxiety level drop after doing the transformational exercises at the end of each chapter. Take this courageous journey into your shadow side and find the key to total self-acceptance.
What are you hiding from yourself?
Why do we find ourselves disproportionately angry with the selfishness of a friend, the laziness of a coworker, the arrogance of a family member - or even the rudeness of a stranger? Why do the same old things get to us so easily, and so intensely? Our “same old things,” Debbie Ford explains, are clues to our dark sides - and to the emotions and traits that we fear most in ourselves.
In this enlightening guide, she explains how - consciously or unconsciously - we hide and deny our dark sides, rejecting these aspects of our true natures rather than giving ourselves the freedom to live authentically. Here she shows that it is possible to acknowledge and accept our so-called weaknesses - and that in fact, these qualities may prove to be important, hidden strengths. Perhaps a touch of “laziness” is just what the workaholic needs; perhaps some judicious “selfishness” can save us from exhaustion and resentment. Through the illuminating stories and practical exercises in this book, Debbie Ford shows us how to reconcile our darker impulses, find the gifts they offer - and reclaim our wholeness once again.
