Ways I can work with my Shadow...have lots of conversations with people who challenge my tendency toward seeing my POV as ultimately right, wrong, or in a certain way.

Ways I can work with my Shadow...When I get overly focused on work, I can neglect what matters; my heart and hearth. If I try to ‘do it all my self’, I isolate my partners. In sharing responsibilities and talk about what’s weighing heavy on me, we grow closer. People need people, I’m no different; my partners show me their vulnerability and teach me to soften my heart. I value that.

I endeavor to be...humble, inspiring and uplifting. Emotionally porous, fluid and psychically impressionistic, I am a natural actor.

Ways I can integrate my Shadow... in relationship, some things need to be spelled out. I can learn to rely more on actual (rather than intuitive) communication. The more ambiguous or avoidant I am, the more foggy my partnerships get. I endeavor to face problems head on. Instead of relying on others’ to serve me, I model their efficiency and helpfulness into my way of being.
