Nicola Lucie & Shadow Walking Banner


I’m Nicola Lucie, a Certified Shamanic Practitioner who specialises in shadow work and the creator of Shadow Walking – 1:1 Shadow Work Sessions and Mentorship.  Coined a Soul Doula, I walk clients through a deep and profound process to help them unravel their unconscious patterns, limiting beliefs, disempowering behaviours, and false sense of identity to support them in realising their true self and manifesting their highest potential.

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.


From the moment we are born, we are exposed to wounding, trauma and conditioning, which alter our natural state of being and creates a false sense of identity.

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. 



”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.”

Katherine, Musician

”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. ”

Our world is in crisis. Mother Earth continues to be abused and raped for her natural resources to feed the frenzy that is pathological consumerism, a symptom of the problem created through deep conditioning and the misuse of power. Over and over again, we are seeing movements within society rise up demanding action and the need for accountability and responsibility, yet the sad fact is, at whose door does the real responsibility lie? Who are we [...]

The Art of Disempowerment

It really is amazing how much we have been disempowered over the centuries, as women, as men, as a collective, yet through this systematic conditioning, we have learnt how to disempower ourselves and others. On a daily basis the words we speak, the decisions we make and the actions we take disempower at every level, and most of the time it is unconscious through the lens of projection. Every time we project our beliefs and our [...]


Have you ever got to that point when you think what is the fucking point? I've done all this work, I've come so far, and here I am still at ground zero. Still repeating the same patterns, manifesting the same energy just with different stories. What thoughts go through your mind when you find yourself down the rabbit hole again? Pay attention now, because I can tell you they're not very comfortable. In fact, they probably [...]


We were born into this world with a mission in your blood, a sacred path to walk, and gifts to share with the world. Yet as we took our first steps and spoke our first words the first shadows were cast over our souls.The more we grew, the further away we found ourselves from our true soul's essence.Conditioned by those around us, by the hurt we endured through trauma and wounding, we became a myriad of emotions [...]
