Gabrielle Nora Irene Johnson (she/her)
the shadow huntress
I have spent the past ten years navigating the internal and external worlds that surround me. I recycled my pain into fuel to uplift and move me forward, discovering along the way my innate ability to guide others and shed light on the shadow that gnaws at our being. Through healing my deepest wounds, I heard the calling to empower and guide others in their own innate ability to transform. Everyone has a “story,” here is mine..
“If you don’t like your story, leave.”
I used to think my story was my identity, a story rooted in pain and trauma. I identified as a victim. Then I identified as a survivor. Neither truly empowered me to ascend into the sovereign woman I have now become. My upbringing felt like “being in hell in your own home.” Cyclones and hurricanes that left nothing but grief in its path.
It became deeply taxing to hold myself in the light while drowning in my own darkness. I decided to change not only my story and my identity, but everything that clouded me from living my ultimate life. I invited more light in, embraced my shadow with compassion, and truly transmuted it. Through Life & Relationship Coaching, EMDR Therapy, Hypnosis, Tantra, Energy Work and Plant Medicine, I dove deep into shedding, healing, alchemizing and expanding. Those ten years of growing pains, salty tears, ego death, and holding up the mirror birthed the empowered Shadow Huntress and Life Guide who stands before you today.
I have lived as a human rights activist, artist, visionary, photojournalist, and teacher in the projects of New York City and the third world. I have been a Life Guide in Asia, Africa, and Europe where I was inspired by the ancient wisdoms of indigenous peoples, rituals, alchemy, and methods rooted in Shamanism.
I was drawn in by Gabriella’s radiant energy, she is a very attentive person and listened to my needs patiently without judgement, which allowed me to open up and become more vulnerable.
I have learnt a lot about myself at my pace from suggestions Gabriella recommended to me 6months ago which at the time I didn’t want to listen to or accept, I am just starting to apply this in my life now because I am reaping the rewards and i see the benefits of her coaching, I wasn’t ready to take that step then, but I am now and I am a better person for it.
If you want to make that change and need some support which I believe we all do at some point in our life but are afraid to ask for it, take the leap with Gabriella and you won’t regret it, I didn’t and I am grateful for her love, truth and expression.
Gabi has natural insight and understanding of human behaviour and expression. Intuitively she can see how to guide people to deeper understanding of themselves. This kind of insight leads to people feeling fulfilled and in joy.
Fundamentally a creative, which Gabi is, needs to be expressed and be inspired. The more Gabi explores herself, her gifts and her truth, she is starting to see a clear path emerge before her. A path that she would like to share with the world.
I was not experienced with the treatment she offered me at all, I had never done anything like this. Her guidance felt confident and I felt securely held from the very first minute though, soon my insecurities faded and I was able to give in. She took time so I could arrive in the situation, and made it very easy for me to relax. The bodywork we did was intense – with her guardiance I felt safe enough to go close to my boundaries/borders and beyond.
I would call it a chapter-changer when I now look back at it. The impulse I needed to turn the page and release this emotional cramp I was carrying for so long. It is no woodo magic, and you don‘t heal an injury like this overnight. But it was the start of something, or the end... or both. Thank you, Gabrielle.
Pointing us to the deeper truth rooted in individual expression, creativity and love. She made a sacred space for divine expression and sister hood.
Gabrielle is a very intuitive, supportive guide. She helped me get in touch with some deep trauma that I had all but given up on healing. She is fearless, easy to trust, and immensely understanding. With her nearby, I found myself undoing knots that had plagued me for decades. The next day, I found myself easily compassionate for myself and others.
I would recommend Gabrielle to anyone who wants to heal or relax deeply. If you find her in your life, you've been blessed with an opportunity to grow, heal and transform. Don't pass it up!
I truly believe that our work together attracted my new job, leaving the stagnant job I had been at for 7 years and I feel so much more alive and myself than ever. I highly recommend working with Gabs for any personal & professional soul searching you're in need of!
