1. the shadow consciousness is primarily formed between the ages 0-7. until it is healed, you will be unable to psychologically evolve fully into an adult. in other words, unless you resolve your childhood trauma and reprogram your conditionings you will never fully advance from childhood, but rather remain stuck victim of a juvenile mentality. healing the shadow is growing tf up.
2. in the words of carl jung, ‘until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct you life and you will call it fate.’ in total 95% of consciousness is unknown, meaning you are only aware of 5% of your thoughts. until you bring the shadow into light your subconscious will be running the show.. and you will just accept it as ‘the way it is’. when you bring your subconscious into conscious awareness it loses power over you, and with practice you can reprogram it to default the life you truly desire.
3. the shadow is famous for self-sabotaging and taking the reins in the most inconvenient of times i.e. en route to a promotion, in a healthy relationship, in a ‘good place’ in your personal life.. basically the moment you’re about to *level up*. the shadow pops up in and is like ‘hey you’re growing let’s fuck it up!’ and then manifests as some sort of unconscious act of rebellion i.e devolution to toxic patterns or emotional outbursts or (insert type of) escapism. until the shadow is healed it will always be working *against you* rather than *for you*. when the shadow is healed. it becomes a true superpower 🤙💫

shadow work is learning how to dance in the dark. lightwork is remembering that you are Light itself, & wielding your natural ability to manipulate energy in the quantum field. both practices are integral to heal the whole.
#shadowwork brings light to the subconscious conditionings & repressed trauma accumulated in the human experience (mostly before 7 y/o). #lightwork helps move & release these experiences stored as energetic blockages in the subconscious body.
I spent most of my life struggling with my shadow. when I started practicing reiki in 2009 something huge shifted. I began to perceive & transmute my shadow with more clarity & ease. for sure not claiming the process was easy or painless but it was one of the most important things I have done as human. & I’m SO grateful to guide others on this journey to reclaim their power & heal tf up.
I have developed an online transformational program to offer tried & true methods in a demystified step-by-step guide to shadow work, combined with a training in reiki & bioenergetics.
