Anyway this is an article from Carl Jung about the Shadow Self: http://theawakenedstate.tumblr.com/post/74493412736/the-shadow-self-integration-of-the-soul#notes
we seem to be getting themes of Letting Go today but that is truly what the Universe is telling you. The more you cling to the old the more it will cause friction and cognitive dissonance within your life. When we’re able to let go, we release and clear old energy patterns. This is honestly the perfect time to do that because we are headed right into Mercury Retrograde which is always about revisiting our past wounds, past relationships and past old habits. Get ready for lots of Clearing. This is really about Letting Go and learning to embrace the New. You are never truly talking to a wall, your guides, your higher self, We are all listening.
Also since you mention fire, the solar plexus came up for me, maybe this is also due to something with your Solar Plexus needing healing. Fire is the element of the Solar Plexus, it is also prone to create depression, feeling lack of willpower, no direction, the maturation of the Ego it is also deeply connected to our Mother. It is the womb of where we are born so naturally when we go through a transformation it would start with clearing out the Solar Plexus because it is one of the most important aspects of learning to Transcend our Ego self. Everything is connected. You should look into some Citrine or Yellow Calcite. Surround yourself with Yellow, you need bright colors back in your life. Find yourself by looking within and letting go of what no longer serves you. Instead of not feeling the fire, find a way to start kindling it again into your life by taking a direction, taking an action even if it’s a simple one. Find the savior instead of the Victim. It sounds to me this is very much like a deficient solar plexus. If you even think about the basics of this, lost identity. Id. Id is the ego. Solar plexus is home to the ego. See all connects 😉
