Rid yourself of the unwanted YOU>>>I use several ways to get at that shadow, but one is a process that we developed at the Integral Institute called 3-2-1 (as in third person, second person, first person). There are two versions of this practice. In the morning when you wake up, you think of a dream and think of the element in the dream that’s the most disturbing -it could be the most attractive, most positive, or most negative. So that’s a third-person object or ‘other’. Now most psychodynamic theories agree that the elements that disturb us most are parts of our own finite selves that we haven’t come to terms with; we’ve repressed them or projected them and they appear as other. Your finite self as split something off from itself and that shadow element will screw you up all the way to enlightenment and back, because there’s no way to get at it. So in the morning you simply take one of these elements and hold it in front of you and talk to it. Now it becomes second person. And once you’ve converted it to second person, then the next step is to make it first person, to identify with it, to actually speak from that place: ‘I am the monster,’ and so on. That’s a very good way to help you get out of the victim mode, because one of the primary ways you can get into the victim mode is by projecting some aspect of yourself that you hate outside yourself, and then it attacks you all the time and you can’t figure out why. So that’s the 3-2-1 process. You can also do it at the end of the day – take an event, thing or person that upset you and follow the same process. Thanks from Integral Life
