What is Shadow Work? (+ Why It Matters)

Shadow work is the heart and soul of the magic that is flowing through me as a Master Energy Healer and Intuitive Guide. And shadow work might sound mysterious or even ominous…

Shadow work is just code for the emotional and spiritual healing that leads you to an embodied experience of…

RADICAL self-acceptance…
RELENTLESS forgiveness…

For yourself and for others. 

The kind of love that can only be Divine. 

The kind of wild, wild love that heals everything. 

The kind of LOVE that grips you right in your soul and won’t let you loose.

The kind of LOVE that only comes in when we surrender the burdens of right and wrong. 

The kind of love we all long for but, deep down, doubt exists for us. 

But, my promise to you is this:

That kind of love exists. 

And, for the brave and tenacious seeker like yourself, shadow work is a gritty and gratifying path to that kind of LOVE. 

To be clear, though, shadow work isn’t just a process you can google and then “get” right away. It isn’t a goal to check off your spiritual bucket list. And it won’t earn you any spiritual gold stars (because despite your conditioning to the contrary, there are no spiritual gold stars to earn). 

Shadow work, like any spiritual path, is a way of life. It’s a lens to look at the world through. It’s a process of forgetting your Divinity and, then, with Love, Compassion, and Grace, remembering that you forgot. 

Over and over again. 

We forget and remember. 

And we forget again. 

But this life is a circle. 

It’s coming back around.

It’s coming back again. 

~ Trevor Hall (Bowl of Light)

Each time you circle back, forget, and remember, you will melt deeper and deeper into…

RADICAL self-acceptance…
RELENTLESS forgiveness…

The work is really in the remembering. 

So, if you’re looking for a quick fix or magic pills, run far far away. You won’t find those here. 

But, if you want to KNOW your Divinity, not just in your mind, but as a FELT and REAL experience AND you’re willing to look yourself right in the eyes to have those experiences and stay the path, welcome. You are definitely in the right place. 

I’ve been doing this work with folx, all over the globe, for 10+ years and, more importantly, I’ve been doing the work myself. What I have to offer you isn’t just some shit I read on the internet and decided to write a blog post about because I thought it was cool. 


For me, shadow work is a deeply embodied experience that has healed me in unimaginable ways. Like, on the level of miracles in how I relate to myself, to my friends and family, to my work, to money, and with food. 

Transformation abounds because of this work and I want that for you. 

So, I’ve created a free mini-course to initiate you into the ways of the shadow work path. Enter your details below and you can start the free course right away.
