Do you have a plan for Halloween? Have you decided to hide out at home, hoping no little monsters ring your bell so you can have all that candy just for you? Will you be waiting for the night to finally be over because you’re just not in the Halloween spirit?
I invite you to make a new plan for Halloween. This holiday is not just for kids and their parents anymore! Read what Bruce Horovitz of USA Today says:
“This adultification of Halloween is taking place in virtually every city in America. At bars. At restaurants. At movie theaters… adults have slowly been stealing Halloween from kids for years. Now it appears, grown-ups own the holiday.”
Halloween is a great opportunity for you to indulge yourself. It’s a time to play dress up and enjoy stretching yourself out of your comfort zone.I invite you to use this holiday as an excuse to walk on the wild side; get in touch with your secret self. This hidden part of you will create a sense of mystery that will draw men to you — and they won’t even know why.
We think we know who we are and these limiting ideas dictate how we show up in our relationships. But they’re “shadow” parts to your personality that we don’t express. If you don’t get familiar with those parts, you won’t be bringing your whole self into your relationships and you’ll attract a man with the same limitation.
For example, if you’re a woman who’s quiet, introverted and who hates parties; your shadow self is going to be the opposite. She wants to put on a fancy dress, high heels and look glamorous. She wants to make an entrance that turns heads!
If you’re an outgoing extravert, your shadow self wants to dress modestly and primly. She’s not looking to be the center of attention and prefers to observe and have people approach her rather than the opposite.
If you’re not one of these two extremes and don’t know who your shadow self would be, here’s what to do. Think of someone in your life whose behavior you judge harshly. Someone who makes you say to yourself, “I would never act that way, I could never do that.” Bingo, that’s your shadow!
You won’t get the benefit of dressing up if you’re sitting at home alone. You need to go to out where they’re celebrating Halloween.Halloween’s the perfect storm where you can express and embrace the repressed part of yourself that you keep tightly under wraps.
Indulging in your shadow will allow you to be more in touch with your feelings. This will make you more likely to find a man who is equally authentic and more fully himself.
You can go back to your everyday self in the morning, but tonight you’re going to dress up as your shadow and prepare to have fun — and don’t be surprised if you have a fabulous time!
