THE DARK SIDE OF THE LIGHT CHASERS is written with such brutal honesty that if you are not ready to change your life than don’t bother with the book. Why? Because it would probably put you off, and that would be a shame because this is an extraordinary book that will surely alter your life as it did mine. Ms. Ford teaches us to deal with our inner demons or shadows as they are called in the book Shadow work as Ms. Ford refers to is the on going process of depolarizing, and balancing to heal the split between the conscious sense of self and the all else we are or could be. We learn that ‘Dark’ doesn’t mean only negative, it refers to something out of the light of our conscious awareness.
We know our shadow by many names, dark side, alter ego, the dark twin, the repressed self. I always told myself that I was crazy, I’m not worthy of the nice things that I have, and worst of all I felt unloved. Believe me when I say the hardest thing in the world to do is to look deep inside yourself honestly and for me it all came out in anger, learning to own the anger and then dealing with it so I could change that pattern in myself. When we do that our whole way of thinking changes for the better.
THE DARK SIDE OF THE LIGHT CHASERS is a wonderful self-help book and will show you how to be a whole person if you really want it.
