Tell us about yourself
When I was 10 years old, my mother came home with a small tattered book about near-death experiences that changed my life forever. After reading that book, I prayed to my newfound angels, spirit guides, and whoever was out there listening to teach me everything there was to know about the world beyond our five senses. I asked to be shown the truth behind our physical reality, why we are here, and what it all means. Quite the list of existential questions for a 10-year-old, but my curiosity had been sparked, and the blaze has yet to extinguish 15 years later.
Through my exploration of the spiritual and metaphysical, I discovered meditation. During these quiet moments, I began receiving intuitive nudges to learn Reiki energy healing. Over the years, I have developed my intuitive gifts and techniques for healing myself. I now feel called to help others during these transformative times on Earth. I use what I have learned from my degree in Psychology and the spiritual awareness I have cultivated to help people remember who they truly are and live more in alignment with that version of themselves.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I am most proud of the personal growth journey starting my business has led me on. When you start a business, there are so many personal blocks related to worthiness, belief in oneself, and trust in your inner guidance that must be worked through in order to be successful.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
One of the most challenging aspects of being a business owner is learning the delicate balance between taking on more clients and taking care of yourself. For me, grounding and meditating daily is a necessity, not a luxury, if I am going to be at my best for my clients.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Stay open to learning; there’s a lot you can figure out for yourself instead of hiring out. Secondly, you don’t have to figure it all out and do everything now. Allow your business to unfold naturally and incorporate things as you go. Lastly, listen to your clients. They will give you hints about services people might be looking for.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
Don’t limit yourself; work through any limiting beliefs as they arise, and never stop believing in what you feel called to do.
Where can people find you and your business?
