Community Highlights: Meet Shaina Shazadi of Bloom Shakti

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shaina Shazadi.

Hi Shaina, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I was raised Muslim but always felt there was more. I was always “in tune” and loved to be in nature. I saw God/Goddess in everything. At 18, I started researching and going to churches, Buddhist and Hindu temples. I also discovered the law of attraction and quantum physics. By 24, at the lowest point of my life I decided to not contribute to smoking, drinking or hook-up culture. I even practiced veganism for a while. I took time to learn and got certified in numerous energy healing practices, all for myself. The intention was self-love and I found my purpose. At 28, I surrendered to my intuition and birthed Bloom Shakti. As I evolve so has my business. Here were are three years later thriving! I’m here to remind people of their true essence. Now a board-certified coach and energy healer. The combination of holding space- listening and reflecting to clients their power integrated with Reiki, crystal, sound, emotion and body coding is transformative. I’ll pull tarot/oracle cards and deliver intuitive messages to help. Even an apothecary line of lunar charged and Reiki infused spiritual baths, soaps, manifesting/spell candles, anointing oils, crystals and healing jewelry. I am also the host of Soul Self which is a podcast I speak on all things trauma, healing, spirituality, dating/relationships, feminine embodiment/womb healing and more.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I’ve been to hell and back to be able to understand and hold duality with compassion. Asides from personal relations, the biggest challenge was deciphering whether I’m doing the right thing. I have my Master’s in healthcare administration, however, a six-figure salary at a cult-like corporation with mental and emotional abuse/manipulation went against my values so it was a huge leap of faith to quit and show up for myself. I talk about things most are thinking but not saying and maybe not even aware of and dismiss as “quackery.” Yet I learned to be confident, embodied and back myself up. I’ve learned that at the edge of our capacity is the edge of our current identity. There’s a part of me that had to die for this expansion/level up. I was afraid and acknowledged it. Not knowing what’s going to happen is scary but there’s power in fear. If you only want the good in life, you’ll never get there. You’ll stay stuck in your comfort zone. Growth happens outside of comfort zones. Hard moments are an initiation to expansion/uplevel. Truth is-whatever you fear, you’ll have to face at some point cause you’re not avoiding it, you’re actually secretly manifesting it. I bet on myself and took my power back. P.s: no one else will love and bet on you. Do it for you!

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
My medicine is to support heal trauma, release unexpressed emotions and clearing blocks to help bring you into energetic alignment for true liberation this lifetime. Unlike many who regurgitate information, I am embodied and it is felt. In working with me – 1:1 or group programs/courses or implementing Bloom Shakti apothecary items, you’ll be closer to where you’re meant to be.

We’d love to hear about how you think about risk taking?
Risk taking is a necessity. Humans innately need safety. Biologically we want to ensure we will be alive and well. Our ego does everything to protect us however it can also hold us back therefore sometimes it’s important to take the action and then relax the nervous system after. Meaning letting your brain and ego know that you will be safe after taking the risk. Taking a risk doesn’t necessarily have to happen all at once. It is those everyday little things that expand our field. For example, sitting in the sauna a couple of extra minutes, Cold shower therapy, trying new food, traveling alone or longer/new workouts. These things expand our nervous system assuring the mind “hey we aren’t dead,” so we then trust ourselves, expand and take more risks.
