“We only know our light, by looking into our shadow. One defines AND complements the other.”

Welcome to our first Courageous Conversation on the knowitall.ch blog. This is one of my favourites ways to share love and inspiration, and I’m so excited to have this opportunity and bring it to you here.

In this occasion, I invited Monica Pelayo to discuss why embracing your shadow is so important to live as a whole, happy human.

I met Monica last year in Bali, during the Awakened Woman Conference. I instantly fell in love with her way of speaking about deep, real, raw human “stuff”. Sometimes the sweet candy taste of the “light” and the glamorous goddesses dresses feel unreal here on Earth.

As a good scorpio myself, I’m in love with the constant dance of the shadow and the light, the alchemy and magic of the two. I like it real. I like it as it is. I knew Monica was the person to have this conversation. So I flew all the way to Madrid to meet her, and of course magic happened!

  • Are spiritual practices promising the return of our light, to only create more split, comparison and confusion?
  • Is “the shadow” really bad?
  • And most importantly, how the gifts of the shadow can either hold you back or move you forward.

Monica shares a simple practice to learn from your shadow, and her personal experience on how her own shadow helped her to advance her business !
