Seeds of Wisdom: Uncovering Gifts through Shadow Work with Special Guest Raquel Bravo

Who is Raquel Bravo?

In her words…

I am a writer and an artist. I am a genuine seeker of Truth, and an explorer of Oneness. Unbeknownst to me, until just a couple of years ago, I see my entire life has been driven by the search for Self-Realization. I went through a long period of denial, where I felt lost, blinded by what society told me I had to become. The years of self-denial were filled with darkness and depression as I clung to an inner knowing that there was more to life than what I was witnessing around me.

In 2010, a pivotal moment occurred. A spontaneous awakening occurred from reading a book. I saw through the illusion of who I thought I was. It was a passing experience that lasted only a couple of weeks. I fell back into the false impression of reality, a misconception that life was being lived by the ego. However, I knew something magnificent had occurred, I just didn’t know what it was.

It wasn’t until a few years later when I met my spiritual teacher, a teacher of Truth, that my journey inward began. This path saved my life. It was through this inner exploration that I discovered I was much more than I believed myself to be. I was more than just the roles I played in this human body. I was more than a mother, sister, daughter, friend, and lover. Because I knew this was true about me, I knew it was true about everyone and everything I encountered. To have the direct experience of being at One with existence is the most magnificent and life-changing occurrence.

It took ten years after that first experience in 2010 for things to be revealed and for me to uncover just what my life was all about. It was also through this path of realizing my true nature

that my creative gifts reemerged. They were never gone. They just became covered up during the period of self-denial.

Through this journey of shedding the untruths, creative writing began to rise to the surface. It was a gift that needed to be nurtured after so many years of suppressing it. It is through writing that I express the Truth of who I am. Writing is how I release my sensitivity, my clairsentient abilities that used to get the best of me. I now see my delicate perceptions as gifts of the Divine.

While diving into the personal psychology of my human behaviors and patterns, I created the Stillness Within blog. It was there where I shared my journey of shadow work, and it was where I hosted beautiful artists and writers as well. Now that it is almost two years in, I find myself moving beyond. Stillness Within is another layer that is to be shed soon.

Currently, I have moved writing platforms over to Substack, where readers can subscribe for free to read my continued journey into Self-Realization.

I am currently working on a new website and my first book, which I plan to self-publish by the first of the year.
