From the recording All of Me
This song talks about how many of us forget the Deserving, Worthy and Unique make-up of Who we Really Are! We often focus on the inadequacies of our personalities, which we label as being a failure and undeserving.
The 'Shadow' in this song refers to the repressed, disowned and unrecognized aspects of ourselves. We dampen our attitude and feeling of Self-Worth by perceiving our 'shadow' as negative - rarely looking at the trapped energy it contains. When we accept 'all of ourselves, we liberate and allow a higher transcendence of this 'shadowed' energy, which in turn can bring out our finer qualities and taproot that of our True Essence.
Look for the Light beneath the Shadow- that hidden Inner Power and Beauty that is the True You!
This song was inspired by the book: 'A Mythic Life ' by Jean Houston
HOLY CHILD YOU HIDE YOUR TREASURE WELL
LONG FORGOTTEN AND TRAPPED BENEATH YOUR SHELL
IN THE MIRROR YOU SEE – A DISTORTED EFFIGY
NOW SCARED OF THE DARK AND ALWAYS ON THE GUARD
GIVE IT LIGHT – GIVE IT LOVE – LET THE SHADOW BE YOUR GUIDE
SET IT FREE – WAKE IT FROM THE DREAM –
THE SHADOW IS YOUR ALLY
FULL OF DOUBT – YOU ALWAYS PUT YOURSELF DOWN
DARE NOT LOOK INSIDE – AFRAID OF WHAT YOU MIGHT FIND
ALL THESE WONDERS IN STORE – WAITING AT YOUR DOOR
NEVER FEELING WORTHY ENOUGH – YOU WON’T CLAIM WHAT IS YOURS
DON’T FIGHT IT OR DENY IT – THE SHADOW BRINGS INSIGHT
EMBRACE IT AND FACE YOUR DARK FRIEND OF THE NIGHT
