Nicola Lucie & Shadow Walking Banner


To ignite social change we have to be willing to make changes to the way we have been conditioned to live, be and do. We have to be prepared to take risks, to break out of the box, to remove the barriers, the restrictions, the limitations and dare to take a step into the complete unknown.

Therefore, it is my intention to offer many of my shadow work books, online courses and first time Shadow Walking Sessions available on an ethically based pricing model, meaning you get to “Pay What You Want” with a self-determined fee.

In other words: you decide how much you’d like to contribute to my work. Whether £10, £100, or £1,000 (I can dream, right?) every contribution helps me bring the profound magic of Shadow Walking into the collective to help support the paradigm shift and allows me to continue to offer my many of my books and services as “Pay What You Want.”

With love, gratitude, and thanks in advance for your support and generosity.


I’m Nicola Lucie, a Certified Shamanic Practitioner who specialises in shadow work and the creator of the 1:1 Shadow Walking Process. I’m also a rebel with a cause, who is on a mission to ignite social change through the potent magic of shadow integration work. 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 engaging their personal power to make a difference to humanity and our beloved planet.

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 depend on others to give us the love, care, warmth, comfort, sustenance, structure, and guidance we need to survive, to stay alive, as is our human will, and when one or more of these most basic needs are not met we learn how to adapt our behaviour to receive them. 

We absorb everything around us, reactions, behaviours, emotions, beliefs. We are told what to do and what not to do. We are told what to say and what not to say. We are told everything, and therefore we learn everything accordingly. We are systematically conditioned by those around us to be loved and accepted, we conform to fit-in, unconsciously changing our weave to be safe and secure, and to have a sense of stability. 

Add to this our exposure to wounding and trauma, events which happen in our lives that we do not have the mental, emotional or spiritual capacity to understand or process at the time. Events which may be too strong, too overwhelming, or too profound to cope with and therefore they remain unprocessed, unresolved and become suppressed in our unconscious. 

Oftentimes, the potency of the wounding or trauma is so great we disassociate from our bodies in order to help us cope with the experience. This is referred to as soul loss, where part of our soul becomes hidden from us and along with it any gifts, strengths, talents or personal power 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 self-awareness and self-realisation, to live 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. ”

The voice from the shadows in black and white to be heard and shared, to inspire and empower.


Shadow Work is not simply a healing modality, it's a way of life, a change in perception and an expansion of consciousness. It's a labour of love for thyself, for humanity and for planet earth. It's a walk back home into the body, the present moment, and away from everything that gave us a false sense of identity. Therefore, to really understand exactly who we are, we will have to enter into a deep and profound [...]


We have been conditioned to measure our success on the numbers game. The more numbers we have the more successful we are. Yet, this is the conditioning of the old paradigm. Keeping us measuring, comparing, competing against each other. Keeping us outside of self rather than at home in our body. The numbers game keeps us focused on our lack, on our inferiority. It keeps us aspiring to the never attainable goal of never being [...]


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 [...]
