The Shadow self is a concept from psychology which refers to the unknown/ subconscious/ dark side of self that we keep hidden until we are triggered with impulses like lust, power, greed, anger, jealousy, selfishness and rage. No one is free from having felt these emotions and everyone has the capacity to act out on them from time to time.
To deny the shadows existence only makes the shadow side come more to the fore. Too find balance within your duality you must first become aware of what your triggers are and then determine why.
If you do not do the work then you will continue to be triggered and the triggers will feel as if they are more and more difficult to control with out reacting too them..
A common manifestation that occurs from being emotional triggered is having unnecessary arguments and feeling other people are an inconvenience. Arrogance can take over, people can become mercenary and solely interested in making money and acquiring possessions instead of living life and connecting with other life.
