Here are some possible responses…
I am not judging or giving you any specific directions yet, just exposing the range of what your reactions might be:
SURF THE NET
CONNECT WITH FRIENDS
GET LOST IN WORK
The main mistake you can make is to take toomuch in a woman’s feelings, emotions and more.
In most cases the best response to female shadows is to stay centered and untouched.
This means that you go on doing what you are supposed to!
Stay centered on yourself!
Don’t let her emotions or projections become yours.
This can mean putting up walls or distracting yourself online or connecting with friends.
This can mean dissociating from staying present with her.
Be non reactive!
Often the best is to not escalate fights or not let her provoke you.
You can as well go fiery and into fights if it’s something you consciously do and master together.
You notice that through all these experiences, the target is emotional mastery!
It’s not about just being passive or non reactive to a trigger.
It’s more complex than that.
You can express anger or frustration for instance but the goal is to master that emotion, not to be enslaved by it.
These situations are like emotional ninja training.
Some women will be super challenging to be around and attack you in various ways multiple times a day, or they might get suddenly distant or sad.
This means that as a man, you could be exposed to multiple situations a day where a woman you are with challenges you.
You could as well be exposed to multiple shadow attacks coming from various sources like a friend, lover, ex, daughter or colleague.
I feel that the dynamics between men and women are specific enough for us to focus on that specific category where men are exposed to female shadows.
And within that category, maybe 80% of the shadows men are exposed to might come from their romantic partner, lover or wife.
Mothers are very present as well as possible shadow sources.
Teenage daughter, female boss, colleague, sister, etc score high as well as potential shadow sources.
Shadow attacks from women are very specific and once you label them as shadow, it becomes way easier to master them.
There is often a deep confusion in men when being exposed to shadow attacks from romantic partners because you expect love and get an attack instead.
For instance you just had sex and your lover projects on you some untamed judgement or criticism.
You just had sex!
You are wide open emotionally!
You dropped your emotional weapons when engaging into sex.
An emotional attack is the last thing you expect!
Or maybe you do expect it but are not fully ready for it.
The point is that it is an emotional or energy attack, and this attack can send you off center and make you do stupid things.
So, what’s the point of these attacks ?
Just wrote another post on that one
When it comes to responses, it’s good to have a trained set of moves, weapons, behaviours, emotional responses or tactics .
In many cases one of your tactics might work really well with one specific person but then be useless with other specific challenges or with someone else.
You notice as well that I use the word tactic because it is a battle!
These psychic projections and destabilizing actions, words or emotions from women are attacks and if you want to win at this game, you need a battle plan.
Next point, emotional or energetic intelligence!
You can rationally understand a tactic but embodying and mastering it is a whole different story!
You don’t know if you fully master a challenge pattern or not until you are exposed to it and thrive through it multiple times.
For instance your wife might criticize you. You listen and take it as constructive feedback one day.
Maybe next time you are exposed to a similar criticism attack, you feel totally offended and enter in reactive mode.
Training an emotional response takes, clarity, understanding and often repetition.
You must be smart and stay awake.
Seeing your romantic or sex partner as your shadow trainer is a big mind shift.
Sex and relationship become your training ground.
The tactics I offer you are the battle strategies that you can then apply in real life.
The emotional intelligence that you develop in these sex and relationship spaces can be applied of course in other aspects of life as well.
You have two core aspects to this shadow training.
The first one is understanding the tactics.
The second one is applying these tactics in real life.
Most people tend to run away from high energy challenges when they arise.
If you experience discomfort, strong emotions, energy challenges, the goal is to stay present and feel the best emotional response to these specific situations.
You must feel in the flow the best response!
These responses are energy postures, attitudes that are a combination of winning mind sets.
Each response is an energy posture, set of thoughts, beliefs, associated feelings and emotions.
This means that your energy posture is not just an affirmations or a communication tactic for instance.
It is the full embodiment of an energy that translates itself through the filter of your mind creating thoughts, emotions, feelings, bodily sensations or even physical postures.
Your energy response is a transmission that radiates out a certain message.
Your shadow training is part of your life mastery training.
