Spiritual Shaman/Life Coach Darryl Elvina helps us understand the unconscious mind. Even when we think it’s too late.
It’s 2:45 in the morning. The world is calm, but your stomach is forming. Forming an opinion. Before you even realize it, you’re eating shredded cheese out of the bag in front of your fridge. As you stand there, illuminated by the cool blue freon haze, you wonder to yourself, “how did I get here?” Sure, maybe you can convince yourself that you’re simply hungry, but what if it’s more? What if, deep down, you’re eating cold shredded cheese from the bag in front of the fridge because you feel trapped in your life. Trapped and unable to exercise control over even the smallest facets of your life. You hate this.
However, you don’t fully realize this. Rather, you know the things in life that have to get done in order to survive, and you do them. This feeling of resistance towards the world you’ve created for yourself is subtle and masked; it has to be in order to continue with the day-to-day minutia.
But what if we were able to allow those complicated deep resistances to come to the surface? What if we could actually capture the complex dynamic nature of these feelings and overcome them instead of pushing them to the side? Maybe, just maybe, we could then feel less trapped and suddenly find ourselves experiencing deep-seated joy and fulfillment?
Well, this fact is self-evident for Spiritual Shaman/Life Coach Darryl Elvina. With a career path that has had many winding roads and unexpected locations, Elvina firsthand has seen the value in unblocking the unconscious mind. So much value, in fact that he’s made it his life goal to help others achieve the same thing.
Darryl Elvina on His Process
When we think of spirituality and going on a journey to find ourselves, it’s easy to fall into the typical stereotypes regarding what that involves—doing ayahuasca in the South American rainforest, going to a retreat in the mountains run by a guy wearing frightfully thin pants, or traveling to India and reading Siddartha. That’s not Elvina’s style. Elvina has found a way to streamline the process in a way that allows people to overcome their unconscious blocks in as little as a day.
For Elvina, the process starts like this. “When it comes to the energy work I do with my clients; there are three main prerequisites. One is permission to work together, and my client is open to the process. Two is the acknowledgment that the energy comes from a higher source – whether your label for it is god, the universe, the quantum, your higher self, whatever that is for you. Three is that I’m just the facilitator, the caller of the energy.”
Once these three conditions are met, he can finally get to work.
For Elvina, however, it’s important to him that his clients understand the role he plays in this process. “I don’t heal others,” he said, “I call energy and support them in healing themselves. Because we all have that power.”
From here, it all depends on where the client’s unconscious mind is. We constantly build up walls and barriers as a way to keep ourselves safe from pain. Limiters. It’s these limiters that Elvina takes focus on and tries to disassemble. As he puts it, “Ultimately, we’re rewiring the unconscious mind for peace, performance, and success.”
So what does a session entail? Elvina breaks down the process well, explaining that “In a session, there’s reflection over what’s coming up for my client, whether that’s self-sabotage, procrastination, low motivation, conflicts in relationships, whatever the issues are… Then a combination of energy work, chanting, trance and hypnosis work, and other tools and techniques to eliminate the root of the problem.”
You can find these techniques in a wide variety of meditative schools of thought.
However, Elvina has managed to use them in a way that impacts his clients the most. Heightening his focus on the unconscious and working with clients to remove these blockages lets Elvina stand apart from many of his contemporaries. Elvina believes strongly that “Mindset work is not enough. Accountability is not enough. You have to focus on change at the unconscious level.”
At this point in his life, Darryl Elvina has managed to find his true calling. As a shaman, Elvina has been initiated into the 28th generation unbroken lineage of Huna Hawaiian Shamanism, the foundation of all his work, and has become a certified Trainer and Master Practitioner of NLP and Hypnosis. His work has helped numerous clients break through themselves and achieve higher successes than they could’ve imagined.
By keeping in touch with ourselves and being open to guidance, regardless of how esoteric it may seem to you, we all have the potential to break our own chains.
Elvina has keys to many locks, and maybe you’ll find yourself one day unlocked by his teaching, as long as you’re open to it.
