What is the Shadow Self in Christian Faith Terms

  From a psychology standpoint, this is our shadow self.  From a faith and biblical standpoint, it is the conscience,  which tells us should tell us, from an objective morals standpoint the choice that is within healthy to us and all ethical, moral parameters.  When we don’t operate from that object morals standpoint, we end […]

Desires in Healing the Hidden Self

  The perceptive and the aware parts of ourselves are  what we refer to as the whole self. The whole self is our personality, which represents our actions, emotions and feelings.
