By my understanding shadow magick is a means to delve into the subconscious mind and gain control of what is there on a conscious level. To analyse what we do in our daily lives. This helps us determine what harmful things we do habitually or not; thus, possibly allotting the chance for change. To come to grips and accepting of our selves for not only our positive aspects, but our faults and flaws as well. Shadow is what is brought by the light we have. You cannot have one without the other. People tend to divulge them selves in the good of things, be it of their selves or not. This creates an imballance. Light is an energy. And just like light, shadow is an energy. Through shadow magick we can create an equilibrium of ballance between light and shadow. Shadow may be the "dark" side of the spectrum, but that does not make it bad or evil. Just like any practices with energy, what you do with this energy determines bad or evil. In this practice we harness the energy of the shadows and use it to gain desired outcomes.
