In the first part of this “quick” and opportune discussion on The Shadow – and in particular how we ‘Project’ The Shadow, Gary explains that one of the dynamics of going to see a motivational speaker is to project our own brilliance onto them – because we don’t quite accept our own brilliance (due to having repressed it into The Shadow), so we see it in them. 

“[In these hypothetical instances] the other person becomes a mirror in which I can see my repressed energies.” – Gary Hawke

He also explains how, because of our suppressed energies, we might interact with others not as an authentic human being, but as an object – in which we see our own Shadow characteristics.

“If I’m told in my early age, “Don’t speak until you’re spoken to”, or “Don’t sing because you haven’t got a very good voice”, all those things I put into my bag of ’stuff’ that I don’t want to look at.” – Gary Hawke
