The Little Coaching Dictionary: Shadow

When speaking to a life coach or a neuro-programming (NLP) therapist, you can be puzzled by the terminology used. We offer here a series that will allow you to get familiar with this language and even demystify it.

In spiritual or awareness coaching, and in well-being magazines (yoga, meditation, zen or other forms flirting with spirituality), the term ‘shadow’ appears regularly, but what does it really mean in this context?

The shadow part, or dark side, is the part of us that we would rather not see or that we dislike in ourselves. It is the part that we would prefer to hide from the rest of the world and sometimes even from ourselves. This is what keeps us in a victim state of mind; we blame others or life in general for our misery.

Looking at your shadow is starting to work on yourself and detect when we can change our behaviour and when we can detach ourselves from patterns that became counterproductive to your mental, emotional or spiritual well-being.

I truly believe that when you get how your body, emotions and mind are co-working with you, you reach a new level of ownership of your life. It leads you to build a joyful life full of opportunities and wonders.?

I approach personal development through the lens of curiosity and the spirit of a treasure hunter. For me each of us bears gems and wonders, some need to learn how to see their potential other will need support to own their genius. Seeing my clients embracing their projects and their being is magical and inspires me every time.

It is through my 10 years of humanitarian work in both Africa, Asia and Europe, that I discovered my passion for knowledge transmission and coaching. I am a certified trainer and NLP Master practitioner, life coach as well as energy healer.

My journey led me to create personal growth tools and workshops that were recently made available online. These tools offer support and assist all individuals looking for self discovery and growth. One of my best selling personal development tool is Drao Oracle, a personal development deck, which is getting great reviews all over the world.
