HELLO AND WELCOME!
I’m Nicola Lucie, a Certified Shamanic Practitioner who specialises in Shadow Work and the creator of the 1:1 Shadow Walking Process, which combines psychotherapeutic methods with shamanic practices to help clients unravel their unconscious patterns, limiting beliefs, disempowering behaviours, and false sense of identity and return home to deep connection with themselves, others, and the world around them.
My work is mainly based online, therefore making it accessible to people from all over the world. I invite you to take a look around, and if my work resonates with you, then please do get in touch here.
WHAT IS SHADOW WORK?
When these events happen, emotions arise in which we are not able to process at the time as they may be too strong, too overwhelming, or too profound for our mental and emotional capacity to cope with and therefore they remain unprocessed and become suppressed in our unconscious mind.
Oftentimes, the potency of the event is so great we disassociate from our bodies in order to help us cope with the experience. In shamanic circles, this is often referred to as soul loss, where part of our soul becomes hidden from us and along with it any gifts, strengths or talents or modes of behaviour necessary for us to have a healthy, balanced and fulfilled life.
Therefore the unconscious becomes the storehouse of all the suppressed memories and emotions of these woundings, traumas and conditioning, and it is from these our beliefs, behaviours, habits and our unconscious patterns are formed as we try to find a resolution to the initial event so we can retrieve all that was lost. This is what is commonly termed as the Shadow, and it is the place which holds the key to awakening the totality of the soul and psyche.
As we go through life we will manifest external situations, experiences, relationships and events that have the capacity to trigger in us the suppressed emotion leading to the memory of the trauma, wounding or conditioning. This happens so we may finally find resolution, however, because these emotions and memories are often undesirable, discomforting, and painful we ignore their message for healing, and default to a fight, flight or freeze state of being. Thus we repeat the pattern of staying disassociated and thus continuing in our disembodied life reacting to external triggers, projecting our pain onto others, and living in a state of imbalance.
Therefore Shadow Work is the process of learning to face, embrace, heal, transform and finally find resolution to our woundings, traumas and conditioning, by bringing them into our conscious minds and retrieve all the lost aspects of self.
When we learn to consciously engage with our Shadow, our unconscious beliefs, behaviours, and habits in a healthy and supportive way we are able to clear from our bodies all the toxic debris related to all the wounding, trauma and conditioning we have been exposed to. The more we do this, the more energy and vitality we have to live a full and embodied life, realising and manifesting our lives based on our own truth, from a place of love rather than from fear and our unconscious patterns.
Fundamentally Shadow Work returns us to a state of full self-awareness, living an embodied and empowered life.
WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING…
”Shadow Walking with Nicola was invaluable and I have learnt a great deal from it, most importantly how to trust myself and set healthy boundaries. I would recommend Shadow Walking to anyone who wants to start to get to the bottom of why painful patterns in their lives keep recurring and begin to look at these things square on, thus beginning to remove the control they have over us.”
”Nicola’s teaching and wisdom have then taught me how to bring those shadow parts into balance. Translating that into everyday life: I can easily say that my life is transforming and changing at a rapid rate. I have discovered self-love, courage and personal boundaries. Feelings of guilt and shame are fading and diminishing. It means that I am no longer afraid to be me. This is only the beginning and I’m excited about what is to come.”
Gail, Marine Geophysicist
” The profound realisations and healing, past, present and ancestral, that have come to me from the Shadow Walking sessions are such a relief. My exhale is so much more unrestricted. All I can say is you’d have to meet Nicola to get a glimpse of the sweetness she exudes. I believe she possesses a gift so pure and unobtrusive that great healing and realisations are sure to follow. ”
