The latter helps us to not have our shadow side be dominant in our daily life, whilst Pushing Back the Night brings a powerful temple of energetic support to this process through strengthening & heightening our inner alignment. Defender from the Dark provides protection to this inner process, preventing exterior dark influences from interfering. In other words, this essence combination provides us with protection against both inner and outer shadow elements.
If further support is found to be needed, then Spike Thorn from the Platbos African Tree Essence range is highly recommended. This essence is a combination of these essences:
Defender from the Dark, Pushing Back the Night, Shadow Warrior.
