Your Decisions and Actions Must Align with the New Awareness that you gain or you will be even more out of alignment than you were before. 

It is easy to see that if you become aware that you are in an abusive relationship, if you stay in that relationship, it will be even worse to be in that relationship than it was before.

Or if you become aware that living in your parents’ house is keeping you stuck, but you don’t move out, things will get even worse for you there. 

Or if you become aware that one of your top values is personal achievement, but you continue to prioritize supporting and helping the other people in your life, you will feel even more unfulfilled. 

Or if you become aware that you are lonely and really decide that you need friends, but you stay in your apartment every day, you will feel even more separate and emotionally starved than you did before. 

If shadow work is making your life even worse, it is because there is a DISCONNECT Between The Awareness you are gaining and the Actions you are taking or rather not taking. 

You are resisting making a necessary change as a result of the shadow work you are doing and in alignment with what you are becoming conscious of.

In case you haven’t noticed already, the universe at large has no problem turning the heat up and making you more and more uncomfortable to the point of crisis in order to influence you into making a change for your own benefit. 

Therefore, the universe is ok with shadow work making things in your life even WORSE for you When You Don’t Make a Necessary CHANGE for the sake of your own alignment and expansion.
