Solo Episode: OCTOBER 2018 :: Monthly Akashic Soul Nourishment Reading :: Extracting Light From The Muck - Becoming Shadow Transformers

About Monthly Soul Nourishment Readings: Just as I weave in spiritual nourishment from the Akashic Records for my clients along with their nutritional protocols on an individual basis, I’ve been inspired to start sharing these readings monthly in the podcast to support the collective with general monthly themed-readings... and so Monthly Akashic Soul Nourishment Readings were born. These readings are usually filled with metaphor & symbols, so may require a bit of unraveling & might mean something different for each person, so pay attention to what comes up for you as you listen on. Hope they provide value and moments of reflection in your journey.

The message for October is an invitation: “It’s time to allow the shadow to move with and through us so it can be transformed.”

In this Akashic reading, we are guided through lots of symbols this month! Earthworms, dark goddesses, transformative processes, and ouroboros, oh my... the synthesis of all of it:

We need the shadow transformers, become one or support their work.

If you thought we couldn’t get any deeper... well folks, this month is an invitation to go beyond the depths of what you have gone previously and get your hands dirty...

We cover various mythological and energetic principals of death and renewal - a natural process of working with your shadow, how to begin to work with and transform your own shadows, plus some of the first places to look for your shadow (hint: triggered lately?). I recommend some ideas for rituals you can implement and work with this month to take advantage of this archetypal energy, and discuss the importance of seeking support when you DIG into the muck... this is some of the most sacred work you can do!

Show Notes

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Earthworm burrows deep and allows the transformation of this putrid dark matter within it’s body, being a vehicle of transmutation. What’s notable is the importance of these beings for our existence and evolution - all the creatures that transform the decaying into life giving matter... they’re doing the dirty work and our world benefits.

  • The earthworm’s connection to snake and the symbol of ouroboros. The process of eating oneself for constant renewal. We too must do this process, do the work because shadow is coming up...

  • We’ll go through what feels heavy and like putrid sludge, and thru this digestive process it becomes rich life-giving soil full of nutrients and life force.

  • Support from the dark goddesses of death and renewal:

  • Kali - ancient hindu goddess of death and destruction, warrior goddess that represents darkness, death and renewal whose job was to destroy evil and rid the land of filth

  • Tlazolteotl, “Eater of Excrement” and of filth. An Earth and moon goddess, a purification goddess with connection to fertile earth that begins with rotting and decaying matter… She turns physical and metaphysical darkness and black waste into life

  • The Andean mystical concepts of sami (light energy) and hucha (heavy dense energy) and the process of extracting sami from hucha – within the darkness there is still light

  • The invitation we are being given to embody these dark goddesses to carry us through our individual and collective shadows

  • Where do you begin? One of the first places to look for shadow is wherever you have been procrastinating the most. That’s usually where we have shadow work to do. Or wherever you have some serious blocks. And of course, wherever and whenever you get triggered by something or someone.

  • Get curious instead of staying mad or upset or in resistance mode. Ask yourself questions. Become a detached and compassionate detective.

  • A big message that came through with this reading is also that we must stay humble!

  • The shamanistic ritual of sacred burial, an ancient tradition that has been used for many centuries for healing, renewal and transformation. It is an authentic ritual of stillness, transformation and deep communion with the spirit of the Earth.


  • Choose a dark goddess that calls to you and meditate with her, embody her essence in your own shadow work

  • Select an amulet or stone - a physical anchor that you can tether yourself to as you go deep with this work.

  • When you feel dense, heavy have your go-to en-lighten-ing practices.

  • It’s ok, in fact, good to wade in the darkness for periods, but we can embody earth worm.

  • We don’t have to remember or recall or relive actual events or moments - that actually would do more harm than good. Instead, we can use vibration and our feeling sense and imagination to identify the heaviness that we can release or transmute.

  • Frequency to break up heavy matter - look to sound healing, heart vibration meditations

  • Don’t allow the fear to drive.
