How to Begin Journaling and Why It May Help You Through Good Days and Bad

You may have heard about journaling but aren't quite sure how to start, what to write or really why to even do it. Is it really all it's cracked up to be? Is it really going to help you in some way? The answer is a Big Fat Yes. 

The simple act of jotting down our internal dialogue to paper can be very cathartic (meaning it can provide psychological relief through the open expression of strong emotions). When we are experiencing anger, frustration, despair or hurt (just to name a few), our minds often try to work out the difficulties through repetitive thoughts. The truth is that our thoughts are what cause us to feel emotions, the good kind and the bad kind. So when we allow our thoughts to run rampant on a tangent, we can become flooded with an unessaary amount of emotional pain.

There is something powerful when you take pen to paper and actually write out how you're feeling. You suddenly release the repetitive thought from your body and this can literally shift the energy pertaining to the topic. It allows you to see the circumstance you are facing from more of an observer point of view, rather than that of an experiencer having the raw emotion. This ensures you can see the situation with a more clear perspective which also allows you to feel more empowered.

I suggest starting journalling by thinking of it as how you'd want to go about cleaning the floor. If you have a topic giving you grief you need to first address that topic. As a metaphor, think of the topic (giving you an emotional charge) as the dirt that is scattered over the floor that needs to be cleaned up. Next I suggest writing out what person/relationship, circumstance or thing is causing this charge or this feeling of disharmony. Think of this as addressing and acknowledging the mess (or getting the broom and sweeping up the dirt). Skipping this step is equivalent to simply placing a rug overtop the pile of dirt. You know the mess is still there and avoiding it will only breed deeper emotional pain. Acknowledgement and reflection as to how you feel and WHY you feel a certain way is the key.

Second, it is very helpful to now place a more positive spin on the topic. For example, if you have recently experienced heartbrake or received news of an illness or disease, it may leave you feeling disempowered. However, what if your perspective of the event shifted even slightly? Making a list of positive aspects with what has transpired is how to create a shift.  

For example, your partner has betrayed your trust and is leaving you for another person. What could possibly be the silver lining in this? Well, for one, now for the first time in your life you get a chance to completely focus your energy on you... no one else. You get to prioritize yourself. There is freedom in this unfolding. You now get to pursue your interests and get to know yourself much better, on a deeper level. You get to connect back to the source of who and what your are. You get to deepen your love affair with yourself. The journey back to self through love and care is an incredible one and not everyone gets to experience this. Often we require a  difficult & life changing event (such as an illness or breakup) to act like a catalyst to force us out of our comfort zone and into a new way of being a living in this world.

I hope this simple act of journaling can help you navigate the rocky waters that are inevitable in this beautiful and mysterious game of life.

Skin Transformation Series (which foods to decrease)

Creating healthy & radiant skin requires a truly integrative approach. While topical products help, looking at the health of your skin from the inside out can really help you achieve beautiful & luminous skin for good. In this post I will share helpful, step by step guidance that will empower you to create the skin you have always desired and deserve. The best part about the steps is that they are mostly free! No expensive drugstore purchase of products is needed. As you read along, keep in mind that for changes to be sustainable they have to be gradual and you have to understand the reasons behind W H Y you are making the changes. Once we have a better understanding of what helps or harms the body, our skin, and our overall health, we become more and more inspired to continue along our new path to radiance.

Then, before you know it, you will start seeing results. You will start to see a glowing, clear and youthful complexion. Not only that, you will find an improvement in your overall health and wellbeing – increased energy and vitality felt from the inside out!  

Skin Transformation: which foods to limit to enhance health

The truth is that what you eat affects not only how you look and the radiance of your skin, but also how you feel. It can do wonders for your skin if you avoid chemically processed, genetically modified or any foods that trigger an inflammatory response in the body. Chronic inflammation is a precursor to wrinkles, blemishes and redness in the skin, so a diet filled with anti-inflammatory foods strongly supports skin health.

  • Casein (found in cow milk): Dairy products made from cow liquids contain a main protein known as casein, which can lead to an inflammatory response in the body; especially to those that are sensitive to it. Without a doubt, I was one of them and never even knew it. In fact, my whole life I gobbled up cheese at every chance I got. Little did I know it was my protein rich cottage cheese and yogurt (cow derived) that were causing my skin so much grief (cystic acne, eczema patches, itchy skin, keratosis pilaris and hives). Please note that sensitivities to casein will vary and will not be the same for everyone. In next Sunday's blog post will share healthy, protein and calcium rich alternatives to cow liquids.
  • Processed Meats & Nitrates: These are full of harmful toxins and preservatives that can lead to allergic reactions (rashes & hives), amongst other skin and general health ailments. You're best to steer clear. Next Sunday's blog post will share plant based protein rich alternatives to cows, pigs & chickens.
  • Processed Sugar: Processed sugar can also be called things like high fructose corn syrup, white sugar, dextrose, fructose or anything that ends with the word syrup. I know… it is tough to avoid this ingredient as it is in almost everything these days but the truth is that it increases chances of breakouts, cellulite and more. This is because sugar messes with our hormones, blood sugar and the immune system, and can even steal nutrients and hydration from our skin. Next Sunday's blog post will share healthy sugar alternatives, including my favourites (honey and organic coconut palm sugar).
  • Sugar Substitutes:  The most detrimental choice you can make regarding a sugar is by picking a substitute that is marketed as "sugar free" or zero calories. These are made with Sucralose or Aspartame (also known as AminoSweet after rebranding to sway the public). These contains toxins & carcinogens which rapidly age the body, including the skin. Click here to learn more. These ingredients also increase the bodies insulin production response. The more insulin we have floating around in our blood, the more our body is going to respond by increasing our fat storage. Interesting how the "zero calorie" and "sugar free" products are the very things contributing to type 2 diabetes and obesity due to the abnormal insulin response it causes in our bodies. As an Exercise Physiologist, it is very common that my clients who suffer with type 2 diabetes or obesity, have been mislead with incorrect information regarding sugar free sodas and they negatively impact their insulin response.
  • Refined White Carbs (also known as enriched wheat flour): As with processed sugar, refined white carbs get immediately converted to sugar once ingested in body and in turn cause the same side effects (spiking blood sugar and releasing more insulin). This puts stress on the body and kickstarts more inflammation.
  • Gluten: The name says it all. This glue-like substance can clog up our body and our skin, while further increasing inflammation. This all stems from what happens to our gut as a result of consuming it (especially if you are gluten sensitive). Curious to learn more? This article here is helpful.
  • Carrageenan: Although this ingredient is derived naturally (you’ll find it is added to many organic food products or drinks to thicken the consistency), it is actually harmful to the body as it too promotes an inflammatory response. This is because it is difficult for the digestive system to break down. Click here to learn more.

I know that can sound overwhelming! I don’t suggest anyone quit cold turkey. The goal is to simply become more mindful and aware of what we put into our bodies and to understand how what we eat impacts our energy, our mood, our health and even our skin.

I use to eat a ton of processed meat, as well as cheese and gluten. Presently, the only animal products I consume include wild caught fish & organic eggs from free range chickens. I also avoid gluten & dairy 90/95% of the time. For me, the biggest thing that healed my skin disorders (which included eczema, cystic acne, red bumps on the back of my upper arms (keratosis pilaris), and itching skin/regular breakouts of hives), was the removal of processed meat & most dairy and gluten. 

I know this to be true because the rare time I consume cheese or gluten, I will experience a light flare up of old skin issues. But let me stress, my dietary changes did not happen over-night! It was very gradual process overtime (a few years) that eventually become solidified based on the results I was seeing and how much better I started feeling. My energy also started to soar as my body was no longer in a state of chronic inflammation.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an alternative healing technique that promotes and awakens health & well-being to the individual receiving this healing energy. Reiki (also known as Universal life force energy) dates back to ancient times when it was used to stimulate the body's own innate healing powers by bringing balance and harmony to the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Reiki is the energy that gives life to all living things. In some cultures it is known as Ki or Chi; while in others it is referred to as Prana or even the Holy Spirit. 

The Reiki practitioner doesn't send or direct this energy from themselves, but rather they act like a conduit which allows this healing life force energy to flow through them and their hands. Reiki then goes where it needs to go. It is not the practitioner that heals the client but actually the client receiving the Reiki, who is able to tap into their own innate healing abilities. This allows for one to come into harmony with their truest potential in all facets of life.

What are some of the benefits of Reiki?

  • Reduces stress and promotes ultimate relaxation
  • Enhances the body's own self healing mechanisms
  • Supports immune system function
  • Restores overall energy and vitality
  • Promotes a more restful sleeping pattern
  • Minimizes short an along term imbalances in the body
  • Helps dissolve negative subconscious imprints
  • Brings forth conscious awareness of patterns that longer serve you
What to expect during a Reiki session

    The person receiving the Reiki remains fully clothed during the session while lying comfortably on the bed, covered with a blanket. Bolsters and pillows are available as well. Sessions usually last 1 hour and can be done with a hands on or hands off approach, depending on the comfort level of the recipient. During the treatment, the clinician moves their hands into specific positions on (or off) the body, during which time the recipient may feel warmth, tingling, or an energetic pressure change. Often times the recipient with drift off into a deep meditative state or lucid dream state. Some people on the other hand may fall asleep. You will still receive the benefits of Reiki if you are asleep. Reiki has no contradictory side effects and requires no concentration or effort by the client.

    Blissful music, tranquil nature sounds, aromatherapy and crystals may also be included as part of this restorative service to further enhance the healing experience.

    Many people incorporate Reiki into their monthly self-love and care regime just as they would with massage therapy or acupuncture. This avoids health crises from arising, while creating consistent results and a higher vibrational living.

    What to expect after a Reiki session

    The therapeutic effects of Reiki will continue to take place for several days (and even longer) after the treatment has taken place. This is your body continuing to restore itself back into harmony and balance.

    Bodycherish offers Reiki, Crystal Healing and Chakra Balancing ~ all to inspire higher vibrational living. All life & business coaching clients receive Reiki (in person or via distance) each month as part of their program.

    How To Stop Limiting Beliefs! Give Yourself Evidence Things Are Working Out

    How easy is it to allow your ego to take over and supply you with "evidence" that your heart-based and passion driven idea is just silly? How easy is it to let ego come in and completely dismantle your inspired idea and keep you playing safe and small, within the confines of your comfort zone? 

    I think we can all agree that it is very easy...and that is where the work lies. It's in catching those limiting thoughts and consciously choosing to stop them and paralyze them in their tracks. This is key because our fundamental beliefs about what is possible in our lives (career, money, health and relationships) is based upon the repetitive thoughts we think. 

    So ask yourself, are you spending more time arguing for your limitations by providing your brain "evidence" why you cannot do something. Or are you choosing to support your dreams and ambitions by intentionally choosing to think thoughts that provide you with evidence things are and will work out in your favour?

    On a personal note, I provided my resignation letter to my corporate employer, who paid me $7,100/mo (not including the golden pension and bonuses) at the beginning of March 2017 with FULL KNOWLEDGE I had not one but TWO mortgages to start paying all by myself by April 1st (my tenants from my rental property told me they were moving out March 31st). Not only that, I had a credit card payment coming up for a coaching program that I had enrolled in the month prior that cost me a $10 thousand dollars Canadian!

    You may ask yourself, why would I quit the financial security at such a financially taxing time? What sane person would do such a thing? I was launching my private coaching practice in April but I had no so-called evidence it was going to match my corporate employer's salary. And I most definitely had no hard evidence I was going to DOUBLE my corporate salary within 9 months of unhooking myself from that soul-sucking job...but I did just that #boom!

    What I had was more powerful. I had belief that no matter what, I was going to be successful AF. How did I develop such a resilient belief system? I only provided myself with evidence that I was going to be successfull. I did not allow limiting thoughts to derail my soul purpose and drive. I prioritized keeping my vibration high knowing I attract what I AM. I consciously spent time ruminating in how and why things were going to work out for me. I believed, and still do, that the Universe and a higher power wants to support me fulfill my deepest desires and wildest dreams in this life.

    And because I believed it BEFORE I could see it, I attracted what I envisioned to me.

    I share to showcase that this is possible for you too. I could have spent countless more months and years at my corporate job supplying myself with reasons why I had to financially. . and trust me, there would have always been another excuse to put my dream on the back burner of life. 

    Life is so short and we can live it in a mediocre, auto-pilot kind of way. Or we can live it like we mean it & open ourselves up to the countless possible (amazing) outcomes that are equally available to every. single. one of us.

    Barriers to blessings

    Part of my story with how BODYCHERISH came to be is that adversity (and what may have seemed like a major barrier to creating my skincare line) was actually a blessing in disguise. That so-called "barrier" is that is that I fell down my staircase, lost my consciousness, fractured my skull, sustained a traumatic brain injury and lost (still to this day) 100% my sense of smell. This happened in August 2013 on my 29th birthday because I was drunk (as per usual back then). This was the same summer of chaos in which I got a divorce, lost my house, had friendships fall away but most importantly...lost my sense of identify of who I was in this world...Talk about some BIG life changes!

    ...but what happened next is quite interesting. As I started to get my life in order and practice radical self-love & care, my sensitivities to the energies around me also started to heighten. Specifically, my draw to the elemental kingdom (aka healing crystals & gems) increased at an exponential rate, along with my spiritual awakening for that matter! It was as if my body had to make up for the loss of one primary sense (smell) by enhancing & strengthening another sense (my energetic sense) in how I now choose to show up & navigate my life this world.

    At the same time of these changes my ‪‎inner guidance system strengthened and I developed the ability to "just know" the right ratios and which ingredients to use (without ever even smelling them). I learned to open myself up to receive necessary guidance and trust that the right answers would always come in - which by the way always lead me to the next best step decision in my life and in my company. It's funny how the Universe works isn't it? I mean, who decides to create a skincare line (which of course has to smell divine) AFTER losing 100% their sense of smell?! I do and it's been wildly successful thanks to something greater and bigger than just myself. Some may (and do) joke that it's someone who hit their head too hard falling down the stairs. I say, Fuuuuck That. From first hand experience, I know it to be true that it is the contrasting life experiences that actually serve us by being the necessary catalyst to propel us into a new, brilliant and bright future.

    I share this story as proof that when you listen to your inner guidance system (what your soul is calling you to do) the Universe will conspire in your favour and open up doors that didn't exist before. Trust me, you will be brought the success you deserve when you follow your heart and your divinely, inspired life path...NO MATTER WHAT may appear like a major barrier along the way!

    Top 5 ways to protect your skin this summer

    If you have been living somewhere cold, it is tempting to quickly expose of all our skin when the summer sunshine first hits. However, to ensure our skin does not burn and stays healthy & youthful (less wrinkles and sun spots), below are 5 simple steps to follow:

    1) If you wear foundation or mineral makeup, look for one that already includes an SPF in it. This is an incredibly simple way to ensure your face is always protected. Make sure to use a natural and cruelty free makeup as well. Make-up that is tested on animals is always full of toxins that are harmful to our body (that is why it is necessary to test them on innocent animals in the first place). I personally use and adore Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage which you can find here. This product contains a broad spectrum sunscreen SPF of 25. I wear this even in winter as UVA/UVB rays are still present and can reflect off the white snow.

    2) Use a toxin-free sunscreen line. Many popular sunscreen brands have been found to have harmful ingredients that negatively impact not just our skin, but our internal organs and endocrine system as well. Finding the right sunscreen that is safe for you and your family can be overwhelming so I suggest using an excellent website from the Environmental Working Group. All you have to do is input your product name and it will tell you exactly what is inside of it and what it actually means to your body and families' health. Access their wonderful website here! 

     3) Put your sunscreen or sun cream on before you go outside. Most products recommend 15-20 minutes to ensure the protective ingredients adequately saturate your skin. This means you will be protected from UVA and UVB rays the second you step outside, decreasing your chance of burning and aging your skin more rapidly. BODYCHERISH launched a Natural Sun Cream which contains organic ingredients and an SPF of 25. If you'd like to learn more, click here.

    4) Hydrate your skin after every bath or shower with a natural or organic body oil or butter. This step is important in summer and not just in winter when skin tends to get dryer. This provides your skin with nourishing ingredients that are chalked full of anti-oxidants and age defying properties (this means supple and soft skin year round). BODYCHERISH has an excellent selection of luxury, organic beauty butters and oils. You can explore them here.

    5) Remember to reapply and cover up! Unless specified, most sunscreens are not waterproof or heavy sweat proof. Also, there is such a thing as too much sun and so whenever you know you will be outside for a longer length of time, be sure to adequately pack. Items such as hats, sunglasses and swimsuit covers can be wonderful for protecting us from skin damage (deep wrinkles and leathering looking skin); especially when worn during peak UVA/UVB levels, which is often between 11 AM and 3 PM.

    That's it Green Beauty Goddesses! Hope you are able to get outside and enjoy this summer sunshine in a happy, healthy and safe way :)

    Skin Transformation (why I don't wash my face)

    You might be thinking...what?! How can this be true? Isn't this the same gal selling facial care products! The truth is that I want the facial products to work optimally for your skin and from experience I know what worked BEST for my face. I use to suffer from inflamed red skin, cystic acne, eczema patches all over the corners of my nose, allergic skin reactions (hives and itching were a regular occurrence), and reddish bumps on the back of my arms. It made me feel less confident and frustrated. It seemed like no matter how much money I threw away on the most expensive, high end products, I still couldn't correct my skin. In fact, the more I spent, the worse it seemed to get! I complicated things and naively thought that a bigger price tag a fancy name brand meant better results.

     

     

    I started to educate myself and learned that those "high end" brands were made with poor ingredients, chalked full of garbage (toxins and other fillers too difficult to pronounce). I realized I was paying top dollar for the label, marketing and extensive overhead costs that big companies have to shell out. The smallest part of what I was actually paying for was the ingredients used... How backwards does that seem?? So, first I started buying natural products with healthy ingredients and noticed a skin improvement. Not too long after that, I started to formulate and test my very own recipes made with the most premium ingredients Mama Nature has to offer. I got really good at perfecting the recipes and before long my skin was 100% different than it used to be. I didn't take pictures of my face when it was at it's worst and so the picture above doesn't showcase the true skin change.

    Flash forward to today and I have not purchased a product for my body or my face in years and I now no longer have ANY of my previous skin issues, unless I occasionally indulge in dairy (which triggers acne).

    The Facial Ritual Kit, is the end result of what worked for me.  Using this kit is the trick to effectively break the viscous cycle of stripping your facial skin of all the healthy oils with harsh face washes, followed by your skin then having to respond by producing an excess amount of oil to make up for it.

    I use to think that simply washing my face with water in the morning would mean I would have even worse skin conditions than I was already suffering from. Interestingly enough, when I started to rinse my face with warm water in the morning, followed by simply applying the Facial Toning Elixir and Organic Facial Serum, my skin dramatically improved! And I mean big time! It is like it literally became younger looking and feeling. Allowing my skin to rebalance itself required letting the natural producing skin sebum to do it's thing. Applying a harsh morning face wash can strip your skin of the healthy amount of sebum and then kickstart that viscous cycle leading to acne and/or dry skin.

    I still do use (about 2 times a week) a very gentle and hydrating skin cleanser as a base to mix the masks and polishes when I apply them. This is called the Hydrate & Cleanse (mask & polish base). Other than that, it is plain old warm water with a wash cloth for me followed by the Facial Toning Elixir and Organic Facial Serum in the morning and before bedtime. If you are worried about how to remove your makeup (and any excess dirt and grime) effectively at night time, I suggest removing as much as your can with a warm wash cloth and then applying a few dabs of coconut oil to the mascara residue around your eyes. Then spray the Toning Elixir onto a cotton pad and gently rubbed across the entire face, neck and eye area. This very effectively tightens pores, removes dirt, excess oil, all makeup and leaves the skin with a luminous glow. Follow this step up with a couple drops of the Organic Facial Serum and Bam! ...Radiant & Glowing Skin!

    Check out the Facial Ritual Skin Kit here!

    This Facial Ritual Kit turns your facial care routine into a sacred self love & care ritual that is truly enjoyable! This ultimate green beauty kit covers the entire facial protocol. The products in this line work synergistically with each other to ensure r e s u l t s.

    Skin Transformation Series (which foods to increase)

    Welcome back Green Beauty Babes! In a previous post I shared ideas on what to avoid or limit, but this week's post is a lot more fun to implement. This week's post focuses on what we can add or increase to our diet to create healthy & radiant skin using a truly integrative approach. While topical products help, looking at the health of your skin from the inside out can really help you achieve beautiful & luminous skin for good. Not only that, you will find an improvement in your overall health and wellbeing – increased energy and vitality felt from the inside out!

    Which foods to increase: 

    • Ginger: One of the most inexpensive and effective ways to decrease inflammation, eliminate toxins from the body and supercharge it with antioxidants is with this superfood. Simple ways to add ginger to your diet include juicing it or simply drinking ginger tea.
    • Turmeric root: This superfood is also excellent for reducing inflammation while helping the body eliminate toxins effectively. Simple ways to add this powerhouse to your diet include adding the spice form to your meals whenever possible. It tastes great sprinkled on eggs as well as soups and various rice dishes.
    • Aloe Vera: This superfood is excellent to apply topically as it is full of anti-inflammatory properties that help sooth dry, flaky or burned skin but is also very healthful when taken internally due to high content of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes. The Facial Toning Elixir contains premium grade aloe vera, which makes it unique to other natural toners on the market.
    • Burdock Root: Can be purchased as a whole food or in a tincture form. This lovely root is excellent for skin health as it can treat abscesses, acne, psoriasis and eczema. It also increases circulation to the skin, helping to detoxify the tissues.
    • Coconut Oil: This miracle oil is excellent to apply topically as it is full of anti-aging, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties but is also very healthful when taken internally. Easy ways to incorporate this oil into your diet include adding a 1/2 tsp into your morning coffee, using it as your primary cooking oil and also substituting in recipes for butter or fat.
    • Cacao: Super high in zinc which is one of the most important essential minerals you can give your skin. Insufficient zinc leads to tired and drab looking skin, while adequate zinc ensures optimal wound healing, protection against UV radiation & a reduction in acne.

    What is "Saturn Returns" & Why it Makes Entering Your 30's Feel Like You're Going Crazy

    Have you heard of Saturn Returns? To sum it up, this will feel like an early life crisis as you turn 29 and head into your 30's. It comes around every 29 years or so and you'll feel it again as you approach 60. The more out of alignment with your highest possible path, the more you will feel it's effects.   

    Things just don't feel right. You sense that something is off which leaves you feeling anxious & like something is missing. You try to make it better by racing to the expected next step, by societal norms that is, only to find out once you get there, that you still are not satisfied.

    I'm not gonna lie. If you're still reading this, there is a very high probability that you are going through or just went through "Saturn Returns" in your birth natal chart. This happens when you are around the age of 29 and 30 and you will continue to feel effects from it well into your 30's. It can be one rip-roaring hell of time! It's influence (returning to it's position when you were born) can really trigger you to question who you are, where you are going & is it the best path. It can cause a stir of unease (often labeled as anxiety or early life crisis).

    This is the point in your life (like many do), that you can ignore that feeling and try to shrug it off. You know, brush it aside and just keep trudging along in the same autopilot cycles.

    But for the brave and fierce lightworkers of this world, who are willing to question this off-feeling and dive a little deeper, a shift will start to take place. A deep desire to experience more out of life. A desire to feel peace, joy & happiness each day. To wake up and go to bed at night feeling calm & at ease. To no longer feel lost, raw or confused.

    You see, Saturn Returning to our natal charts, as we enter our 30's, can leave us feeling like we just went through a washing machine and are now being left out to dry. Where do we go from here? How do we heal and step forward into a life of deep meaning and purpose life, the kind we have only dreamed of?

    I am here to tell you with 100% certainty that there is a way.

    I believe I have "cracked the code" so to speak on how to get there. I never believed my life could feel this way. I couldn't have even dreamt of the way it has turned out. The deep sense of fulfillment I feel being connected to my source (my Higher Self's calling) in my life is priceless. Nothing (no-thing) in the outside world can provide this same satisfaction to me. 

    I believe you can get here too by following a strategic sequence of steps offered in the EYL program and by literally raising your energy (vibration) to a new set point. That mixed with mega mindset shifts and changes in perspective will get the ball rolling and you will become the architect of your dream lifestyle. You will get connected and aligned to your deepest passions and purpose and once there, that is where you will feel true fulfillment.

    Now my question for you is, what would you be willing to do in order to experience, within a short period of time (just 4 months), the desired life you have been craving & yearning for? 


    The one, where you walk through life with an unwavering sense of confidence & assurance that you are in alignment with your higher purpose & exactly where you should be. To have that inner voice of guilt replaced with a sense of calm & ease. A trust and knowing that you are on the fast track to an extraordinary life. The bonus? Not just liking yourself but finally LOVING & ACCEPTING YOURSELF, wholly, wildly and completely.

    If these client testimonials sound like something you too would like to experience, I invite you to connect with me further through the client application found here:-)

    "I am incredibly lucky to have Christine as my holistic empowerment coach - my life would not be the same without her! Her coaching was the start of my journey into taking my photography business to the next level as she provided me the foundation for 10x growth and success! My business has catapulted after she changed my perspective on what is possible for my life and work, and trained me to become a money magnet!

    More importantly I have become more empathetic, caring and loving in all of my endeavours, especially my current relationship. Every week I look forward to the 1-on-1 calls with Christine. She is a JOY to chat with and carefully listens first, then shares her wealth of experience, unique insights and ideas to ponder.

    The energy healing she provides is a fantastic value-add and just what I needed to help the healing process of my past inner wounds. Ever since Christine opened my eyes to the world of self love & care practices, the way I feel about myself has radically changed - I now love all aspects of my life!

    Thank you Christine for putting your heart and soul into what you do, I am sure you will continue to inspire and empower other women to live an incredible life aligned with their purpose and passion!" Jean Mao, Professional Photographer 

    "Looking back now, my path was aligned to connect with Christine.  It didn't take me long to decide that I needed to invest in myself and sign up for her truly remarkable unique holistic coaching program. I knew I needed to get my ass in gear, as all my reading and mentors I followed on FB wasn't enough to step up my game and really change my life. I literally said to myself , I need to stop Dickn around and do something awesome for ME. This was a huge decision as I'm currently on mat leave. However, I put my excuses aside and invested in myself spiritually, mentally, emotionally and financially. Best decision ever!  Christine's natural insight, warm personality and intuitive mindset was truly remarkable. The course content led me on a fun, rewarding and inspirational journey. I received so many helpful tools and found what resonates with me which I now incorporate into my life daily.

    When we are connected and aligned to source energy, its so amazing what positive changes and remarkable experiences occur! It's natural . Each and everyone of us has gifts to share with the world and it starts with working on ourselves. How empowering!!  It was truly life changing for me and would highly recommend anyone thinking about investing in themselves to trust the timing, trust your curiosity and be willing and open, the rest falls into place!  

    The world has so many possibilities and opening up to the unlimited abundance out there is the best feeling ever! I'm very grateful for this coaching course and for Christine's enlightened vision to help soul sisters be the best versions of themselves! She is a true gem. I am extremely grateful." O. Williams

    "I am on cloud 9 today! I laid in bed last night and focused on breathing (while receiving the distance Reiki). Totally felt more effects last night than ever before"

    "That was awesome. Just did my first round of Emotional Freedom Technique (from Week 3's video tutorial). Mind blown. Problem Solved. Feeling empowered. Thank you." Coaching Client

    "Christine’s coaching program was exactly what I needed to pull me out of the darkness that I was living in for months. I had been struggling, looking for a solution to the stirring that I felt in my heart. I was feeling unhappy with my life and experiencing breakdowns every few months. I knew there was more to life than my corporate 9-5 job, my “perfect” life which just empty, dark and depressing. I felt frustrated that I was not feeling fulfilled with my life, unsure of where to turn to determine how to find happiness.

    Her program helped my find my light, it helped me understand what my limiting beliefs were, and how to discover what my true desires are!

    You can feel her energy in the 1 on 1 calls, the weekly homework was manageable with a full time job, children and a marriage to balance. I love having a basket of tools to use when I am feeling stuck, tapping, yoga, meditation, self-talk and practicing gratitude! I have learned to shine my light , and I am currently laying the foundation for my own business and leaving my corporate job at the end of the year. Thank you Christine!!!"  Megan Heinen

     

    "I wanted to share an amazing win from last week. Remember how I said I scheduled a trip with no money? Later that day I received an email that I was the recipient of a bursary in the amount of what the trip cost! I cried with joy and relief as trusting the Universe and my ability to attract a U.M.A. [I teach my client to reframe loans/debt to Universal Money Allowance] for my birthday trip truly worked. I am thankful for being in EYL at this point of my life as it has been a real life-changing experience...Thank you so much for all the encouragement Christine. The more I trust, the more I expand. Thank you, you are a gift the Universe sent my way!" Barbara P.

    "You are truly amazing Christine! Considering we’ve never met, you seriously inspire and continue to impress me!! You’ve illuminated so many awesome ideas and possibilities I never knew existed, and have allowed me to believe it’s possible to succeed in doing something I love when previously I’ve wavered and withdrawn and struggled to find balance without surrendering to mindless conformity... just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you and the incredible lady you are, and for opening up a world of possibilities for me and so many others. Thank you infinitely!" Rachelle S.

    Must Read! The incredible health benefits of Pink Himalayan salt!

    First, we gotta get clear... I said pink himalayan salt not table salt! There is a BIG and I mean big difference. So much so that when we hear salt, we often just think it is bad for us and our health. That is very true for table salt as it has been processed and stripped of everything good (just left with sodium chloride). Pink himalayan salt on the other hand is not processed or stripped of any of its healthy minerals.. it still has all 84 essential minerals that are very, very good for the body! Not only that, it still tastes great when sprinkled onto your food in moderation.

    Having the proper level of essential minerals in our bodies ensures optimal organ health (including skin) and glandular system function (happy adrenal and thyroid glands).

    So where is this pink miracle salt from you may ask? It is sourced directly from the Himalayan mountains where crystallized sea salt beds were once covered by lava many, many years ago. This is thought to be the purest salt on earth as it has been left in pristine environmental conditions, free from pollution.

    To receive the mega-health benefits from this pink salt, you most definitely do not have to just consume it internally. An incredibly easy and affordable way to indulge in this luxury salt, is by taking a therapeutic salt bath. As the skin is permeable, the salt soaks right in and goes to work, promoting healing throughout the body on many levels.

    Having a salt bath once a week is a great way to detoxify and purify the body as soaking in the salt water actually helps pull the impurities out the skin. You will notice while soaking in the bath, you will start sweating more than usual. Don't be alarmed for this is normal and actually a really good thing. It's your body cleansing itself! At the same time, the healthy minerals are also being absorbed into your body and remineralizing your tissues and cells, leaving them to perform at optimal levels.

    Aside from the physical benefits, salt bathing is also said to be spiritually cleansing as well.

    All you have to do is simply run a hot bath and sprinkle this beautiful pink rock salt in and let it dissolve. To make the bath even more nourishing, you could also add essential oils and dried flowers to the pink rock salt.

These have been hand blended with organic essential oils of lavender and lemongrass as well as the truly remarkable healing abilities of larimar and sugilte crystal essences. Not only that they are mixed with premium grade, dried lavender buds, rose petals, lemongrass and calendula.
