I believe in inner power - the Power in You.
I believe in healing yourself naturally.
And I believe in living the life of your dreams - because an extraordinary life is our birthright, and YOU have the Power to create it!
You are the Power!
If you have an epic sweet tooth, a weakness for carbs, and a nagging feeling deep inside that your life could be more, and you’re looking to be healthy, happy and live a life, an extraordinary life worthy of your uniqueness - then we are definitely going to get along.
Despite a deep love for pizza and junk food, I transformed my life from lackluster and full of health problems to zestful, joyous and healthy within a year - and did it without being on diet!
While I didn’t heal or lose 18kg (40lbs) overnight, or fall in love with veggies out of the blue, it was the most exciting journey of self-discovery and self-development; a fun and challenging journey of learning, coaching, studying, traveling, and searching for the right guidance to help me to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It was not easy, but it was worth it.
My journey was worth it every step of the way - because it allowed me to rediscover the power in ME!

My inner journey began long ago, back when I was in high school. I was already interested in the Power within at that young age, but it was only later that I became more focused on exploring it - at a time when my life seemed to be spiraling completely out of my control.
A few years ago, I was living an unexamined life.
I went to the doctor’s for a check-up, and everything seemed fine.
Two months later, a friend of mine asked me if I would be willing to come to a Reiki session since they needed someone to practice on. I went into the session focused on my lower back pain, but it turned out that I had issues with my lower abdomen.
Although I’d just recently received a clean bill of health, I returned to my doctor, and she was in shock.
While I had been completely healthy from everything she could see only two months earlier, the diagnosis came back: endometriosis, in an advanced stage and a fibroid.
Suddenly I was facing an immediate operation, or risking my chances of ever having children and becoming a mother.
In almost no time at all, my whole life seemed to be turning upside down.
I had the operation, and then was given a choice by my doctors: either go on hormone therapy to prevent the endometriosis from returning, or get pregnant. The fibroid, on the other hand, was benign and nothing could be done about it. At least that’s what doctors told me.
I sat there thinking to myself, “Doctors know best!”, even though neither option felt right to me.
Since I knew I wasn’t ready to become a mother yet, I opted to do the hormone treatment. I felt uneasy the entire time I was taking the hormones, and after a year, I decided that I didn’t want to take them anymore - so, I decided that it was time to have a baby. In doing so, I was ignoring my inner voice, going against my will, and listening to others - aka doctors, because I believed that they knew better about what was right for me - rather than trusting myself.
Although it didn’t feel entirely right, sometimes in life we get caught up in following what others tell us we should do, rather than listening to our confident, bold, completely sound inner selves.
And that’s right where I was.
I immediately got pregnant, but it was not an act of desire - rather, it was an act of fear, and three months later, I lost the baby.
That was the turning point for me; the moment that I decided that I would not let fear rule my life any more!
I’m still human, and fear is still present in my life - but now that I am aware of it, I can confront it and deal with it in such a way that I have control over my life - NOT the fear.
There had to be something I could do!
I believed that there had to be a better solution to the hardships in life than reacting from a place of fear!
I became convinced that the power over my life and over my health is inside of me - because I knew that nature is perfect, and that our bodies have the power to heal themselves on their own - so I started searching for ways to internally reconnect, changing my mindset and diet; and this is what completely transformed my life. And my health followed.
My doctors warned me: “If you don’t take the hormones again, you will be back in the hospital with endometriosis again in no time.”
But guess what, beautiful?
It’s been eight years now, and I haven't been back. Oh, and have I mentioned that the fibroid shrunk double the size in 6 months?!
Although I made my biggest dream come true a few years ago and moved to the country I considered my home - surely that would be the key to a life of health and happiness, right?! - I felt a deep emptiness inside still, which is what led to me gaining an extra 18kg. Seeking to fill the void I felt inside, I would eat poorly and unnecessarily. I didn’t care. Inside, I was reeling but I couldn’t figure out why (at that time I still believed that happiness was an external factor). There had to more to Life than that, I strongly believed.
Where was the catch, I wondered?
It was this disturbing setback that pushed me to reconnect and rediscover the inner power that I hold inside: the one thing that could get me back to my purpose, my path, and the joy, fulfillment and happiness I had been seeking. My health followed, and do I need to mention that I lost the extra weight?!
My whole life has changed... I embarked on a whole new journey and experienced a complete transformation due to a mindset shift, energy work, a healthier diet and an intense focus on self-development.
I’ve become a certified Holistic Health Coach, a Reiki Master, a Pranic Healer, a certified Raw Food Chef and Heal Your Life Teacher® to boot. I feel so grateful for these tools, as they are the ones that have helped me to maintain my health all these years, and have seen me become a happier, more vibrant, more fulfilled and loving person than I ever imagined I could be. I am living my life to the fullest, and living my purpose.
My biggest lesson has been learning to see the tough times in life as blessings, and necessary lessons for a better, brighter future.
I could have let my experience with endometriosis and losing my baby ruin my life, and see me drown in a pit of depression and self-pity.
I could have allowed my extra body weight and the way it made me feel to take over my life...
But instead, it was the greatest lesson of my life.
That experience, difficult as it was, helped me to see where I needed to heal in my life, and pushed me to find the tools to become the very best version of myself that I could possibly be.
I listened to what my body was trying to communicate to me through the pain and struggle.
It wasn’t an easy path. It required a lot of research, reading, determination, discipline and hard work. But, it was worth every step of it.
I learned to love my health problems after realizing that they were not appearing to scare or punish me - they were merely loving warning signs that I needed to change and get myself together once more.
What is your inner voice whispering to you?
Since that period of learning and growth, I have focused on compiling and creating the best systems and resources to heal my body and heal my life. It’s not over yet. I am still on my journey as this is not a diet or a “quick-fix”, this is my Life Project!
I don’t want to keep those secrets to myself anymore. It is time I share them with you and guide you to your life transformation. I am so excited to offer these incredible healing tools to my clients as well - so if you know that your health (and life!) is in need of a (desperate) transformation, let’s talk about how I can help you!
