“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you.
If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you. “
~ Gnostic gospel of Thomas
Shadow Temple is a sacred space where we work together to become conscious of and unwind self-defeating habits that lower our vibration.
Have you ever noticed that you become uncomfortable when things are going really well for you? Have you ever had the best times of your life with a partner, to have one or the other of you crash it? We see this in our relationship, often around a full moon. And Scorpio Full Moon is always a duzy!
Why is this?
Len’s Law says that we all have a threshold for the amount of success and joy we can let in before we start to trigger defense mechanisms that actually lower our vibration to prevent any more of that which we really want from coming to us. It sounds crazy, but we’re sure you can relate.
It’s like we have a glass dome, and when we get to a certain level of energy, expansion and joy, our self-defeating habits kick in. It’s like a transparent bubble keeps us in a place that on some level feels safe, because it is known. It is the way we learned to react to our environment, and it is a habit that we have practiced over and over in our life. Heart Intelligence calls this mechanism that works in tandem with our shadows, our stuart.
Stuart is an acronym for the qualities we need in order to disarm our habitual protective programs. To move beyond these defensive mechanisms we need to feel: Safety, Trust, Understanding, Awareness, Relaxation, and Tenderness, for ourselves, and for others.
Our Stuart protects our Shadow, so say we are angry at a friend, but because we think anger is bad, and maybe don’t know how to express what we feel, we stay busy, and distance ourselves from that person. Or maybe we feel sad or confused, and feel ashamed of those feelings, so we put on a happy face, or talk about the weather or politics, to distract from what is real.
By getting to know and personify our Stuart, and see the shadow it is “protecting”, we can have a relationship with it. As we track and get to know these habitual defense patterns, we can acknowledge them when we see them come up, and choose more effective ways to interact with those we love.

You can then move beyond your conditioning into what you really want for yourself, and with all your relationships. The work is accumulative. The more you participate and practice, the better you get at discovering where you are sourcing your truth, and the easier it is to get clear. Once your direction is clear, you naturally move toward more aliveness. You are more able to choose what feels better; mentally, physically, emotionally and energetically. You naturally become more joy-full.
