How to contact the Shadow self

What is the Shadow self?
The shadow self is the hidden aspect of you, think of it as your “Dark side”, as the name implies. The shadow self-represents your darker aspects typically what you suppress.
Why would you want to contact the shadow self?
Creating contact with the shadow self within a Mirror will bring about many benefits.

  • Strengthened Astral Senses.
  • Better Emotional well being.
  • A higher understanding of yourself.

How to contact the Shadow self
Now luckily for us this is the easiest fucking thing you can do, here’s how.

  1. Go into your bathroom and turn off all the lights.
  2. Look directly into your reflection in the dark.
  3. Look into your reflection in the bathroom for a minimum of 6 minutes.

Disclaimer
As horrifying as your shadow counterpart may appear, he will not hurt you,
He’s sort of like your Higher self, but Darker in general.
You will begin to see your reflection fade and a new being emerge, this is your shadow self.
You will perform this exercise multiple times, each time becoming more “severe”, as what you will see will become increasingly more intense and terrifying.
You will be Brought into understanding your dark side.
At the end of this trial, you will merge with your Shadow side, keep in mind this is done after a couple times, not the first one.
Bonus
You ever wondered why people see freaky shit in the mirror with bloody marry and the candy man game, well this is why lmao.

Funny thing, you can also utilize your shadow (the one that u get standing in front of light) and utilize it like an entity to get things done.

Can be done with just 40 days of mantra recital. But nobody wants to share the mantra out in the open. FUCK SECRECY In MAGICK/OCCULT.

@Goku is correct. You can use your shadow self to do your bidding and work on your behalf. YOU control it not the other way around.

This kind of knowledge belongs to the aghora sect, the lhp of shaivite tradition in india. Better not to go and look for it, currently it is infested with fake ones and those who know will hardly be interested in sharing. They cling to this kind of knowledge like ghouls cling to hidden treasure. (That’s why tantra in India is on the verge of death)

I wasn’t talking about shadow self. I was talking about Shadow, that you get behind you standing in front of a lamp.

But yea, shadow self can also be utilized to get things done.

As for getting things done, if you’re referring to Dray’s work, he’s a sham. The shadow self doesn’t have the functions most occult authors give it.

Other wise nice post.

This is probably a blind, there isn’t a mantra, and you can ignore it. Or employ a bit of chaos magik and ask your shadow what to do. If it’s smart enough to what it’s told, it’s smart enough to answer questions, no?

So I’m trying to do this, but apparently, I’m still afraid of being in pitch black darkness (if I can see a little bit, it’s fine though; no, I don’t need a night light, thank you). Any tips on overcoming it for this ritual?

Over coming that fear is part of the Trial.
Your shadow self will not hurt you, he may try to touch you or even communicate right off the bat, but he will not hurt you.
@Prophet
So no worries :ok_hand:.

Ultimately, it’s you. It’s apart of you and you are apart of it. You’ve nothing to fear.

I’m only afraid of myself because I’ve seen what I could do

Self fear is self restraint.

dream work is important for this. Start recording your dreams. Then you can incubate one specifically for encountering the shadow. I posted a dream memory charm a while back. Works a treat for me.

You can also reinforce the encounter by ritual work. For this you’ll be working with the Devil as the Devil is both a macrocosmic entity and a reflection of your Shadow. Set up an altar with some incense and candles. As the focus of your altar you can use any iconography that you find useful. It’s awesome to use a real goat skull, but a copy of the Tarot trump of any deck that takes your fancy or a copy of Eliphas Levi’s Sabbatic goat image would do just as well. From there it’s just standard evocation procedure using whatever name of the Devil that your intuition draws you to. (Or you might like to use divination or automatic writing to find a suitable name). Particularly effective if done just before bed time, particularly with concerns to dream encounters with the shadow.

As always, record your dreams and anything you get during the ritual. Focussed intent is also important; what are you contacting your shadow for? What do you want from it? What do you want to learn from it? The more focussed and intense your desire and intention, the greater the probability of effective contact.

I know this is a kinda old post but I’ve been trying this, but in pitch black darkness I don’t see anything😭 I mean I’ve done the face changing thing but with the lights on but I also saw a video of V.k about this topic as well but I’m not seeing any results. Do you need to get into a trance for it to work and also do you need to see your reflection? Also I was working with it and felt the shiver like sensation yesterday but besides that nada

Wow I legit have been naturally trying to do this without knowing I am contacting my shadow self! Someone scanned me and said that my shadow self is calling for me! I didn’t know how to react but I wonder what it has to say :eyes:

My humble thanks to you for this. It worked really Well.

I immediately started seeing faint images of distorted faces over my own. Most time my face didn’t even look like my own, and one time my right eye moved in the opposite direction in the mirror. I had this reoccuring strange pulse, and when I spoke to the shadow my own contours blurred and it turned into a humanoid silhouette black as an abyss. By now, I wasn’t longer peering into my own reflection. I felt that being in the mirror as something completely separate. I dissapeared, and reappeared like this a couple of times. And when I focused on my 3rd eye, I felt like I was about to faint. Afterwards, I had a feeling similar to euphoria. I will come back to this.
