If you found me and you’re reading this, I’m guessing we have a lot in common. Who knew 25 years ago that coaches, not doctors, would be the ones giving patients a prescription to sustain healthy habits, as well as the ones holding you accountable to healing your body and mind naturally? After my psychedelic-awakening in 2014 I was driven to dive deeper down the rabbit hole into the world of nutrition, and in 2017 enrolled into the world’s largest Nutrition School. Today I hold two masters and 3 additional certifications in nutrition, hormone health and coaching. I also spent over a decade in the hospitality, tourism industry while on my own time practicing herbology and permaculture.
Energy work has only recently become mainstream, with the growth in popularity of yoga and New Age philosophies in general. Chakras in particular are a complex and ancient energy system that originated in India. They were first mentioned in the Vedas, ancient sacred texts of spiritual knowledge dating from 1500 to 1000 BC. This is a deep rabbit hole to go down but worth it if you ask me.
It can be so easy to blame it on the holidays, claim that you just got “too busy” to make healthy decisions a priority, or convince yourself that “everyone puts on extra weight in the winter time” – that “everyone is sitting around at home because were on a global lockdown”.
Mikao Usui was the founder of a form of spiritual practice known as Reiki, used as an alternative therapy for the treatment of physical, emotional, and mental diseases. His teachings consisted of five principles that help you lead a healthier and happier life. The principles are traditionally worded a bit differently but I prefer to…

In this article you will find 10 awesome ways my tribe and I used the sap from maple and birch trees this spring. As an unschooling mom I take every opportunity to get in nature, get curious and have fun with my son. This year we have the opportunity to build a permaculture garden and forage food on 300 acres along the Canadian Shield – because we have an internet connection, we also have the opportunity to share our journey with you.
When it comes to spending time together as a family, heading outdoors allows you to truly focus on each other since distractions and indoor to-do lists are nowhere in sight.
Getting outside gives you and your kids the ability to observe and learn from each other. Playing is significantly harder for adults as our brains are constantly swirling with responsibilities and concerns. On the other hand, kids are gifted with minds that are full of life and a never-ending longing for fun. Let their imaginations guide you as you spend time together and enjoy the abundance of entertainment the outdoors has to offer.
One thing that I think is true for all of us, is that we never completely drop the roles that we develop as a child. I am talking about the masks we wear in order to effectively give and get love, recognize how to feel safe, develop a comfort zone and learn how to connect with people. The root chakra stuff that we have to keep coming back too!!!
Codependency is one of those clinical terms, like disassociative episodes or anxiety. Most of the time the original root can be found in family karma – being a child or grandchild of alcoholic. The truth is that the relationships you developed as a child where are often emotionally destructive, manipulative, narcissistic, toxic and full of power struggles so you developed a protective skin that kept you safe, which as an adult no longer serves you. Instead this “skin” is causing you to be unsuccessful, broke, self-destructive, people pleasing, triggered and unconsciously repeat hurtful patterns.
Kundalini Yoga, has been linked to law of attraction, opening up your full potential, and balancing your hormones. Kundalini Yoga derives from Kundalini, a Sanskrit term from ancient India that describes a rising of an energy and consciousness which has been coiled at the base of the spine since birth. This energy is the source of the life force (prana, chi, collective-consciousness) that everybody knows, and channeled upward through the chakras in the process of spiritual perfection.
It all comes down to having an abundance over a scarcity mindset – which can be hard when you’re just starting out. Collaborations are easy… and finding good, smart, genuine people to collaborate with is not as hard as it sounds. You just have to choose to think abundantly. An example of this is in the health coach industry, there are a dozen awesome schools producing thousands of certified coaches. A scarcity mindset may lead you to compare, judge and get caught up in the drama. Whereas an abundance mindset with allow you to believe that each new graduate is an opportunity for Elemental Growth.
