Jessica is a Shaman, Reiki Master, Yoga and Meditation Teacher working to bring awareness, balance, healing + connection to our body, mind and soul. She began her awakened journey about 10 years ago when she fell in love with yoga. Her yoga experience helped create a pathway to awareness of her body and mind. This journey eventually lead her deeper into a spiritual and energetic healing through Reiki and Shaman work. Jessica is always a student of life and enjoys deepening her experiences, knowledge and practices so that she can create an opportunity for others to do the same.
Jessica is here to support and empower you to create a healthy and purposeful life through nourishing your body, mind and soul. She will take you on a journey to release old patterns, habits and beliefs that you have adapted at a young age that are no longer serving you. These unhealthy coping mechanisms, belief systems and fears are leaving you stuck and lost. These patterns are validating your feelings, that you are unworthy, that you do not deserve happiness or love, that you are failing, that you are forgotten. You don't have to go through life in this way. The universe loves you and wants you to succeed, grow and live your life to the fullest potential. Through this journey you will receive healing through Reiki and Shaman work along with customized coaching to raise your vibration, ignite your passion and bring forth your authentic true self.
Looking forward to working with you.
Many of us have had "aha moments" in our lives. I call these awakened moments, when we are open to receiving our truth. This feeling is experienced when your soul awakens the body into expansion. This is when the truth reveals itself to you. Within the past 5 years I have discovered a truth about my childhood that I had been carrying around for most of my life. Becoming authentic and discovering our truth is a journey. The greatest gift you can give to yourself is to be open to these moments when your truth bubbles up.
Yoga was the magical tool where I can recall I had my first moment of awakening. It gave me the opportunity to discover and explore myself on a deeper level that I was not aware of. The effect it had on my mind and nervous system was impactful and life changing. I began to notice my frustration level slowly diminishing and I was able to let go of things that normally would bother me. The breath work and meditation practices were what made my transitions and transformations possible but it certainly took a lot of discipline and patience to get to where I am now…and it continues to be the catalyst in my growth.
From the time I was very young, my loving and authentic self was buried by my ego. My ego has molded the idea that I need to prove my SELF, my worth and that I needed to be accepted by everyone I encounter and if I was rejected and criticized I would not be worthy or deserving of love.
I was constantly on stage from the minute I woke up. My "perfect ego" would put me together and send me off into the world. When my ego was fed, I felt satisfied, strong and powerful. When my ego was hungry or starved, I felt unappreciated, unloved, unworthy and physically sick. This was such an unhealthy balance and I was on a roller coaster ride that never ended.
These judgments and high expectations I put on myself created lots of stress and anxiety. I was constantly letting myself down and beating myself up with negative talk. This inner chatter really started to wear me down. I became overwhelmed and frustrated which made me anxious and short-tempered. My workaholic tendencies did not help since I prioritized my graphic design career over my health and happiness most of the time. Although my passion for nutrition and living a healthy lifestyle was there in my heart, my need to prove myself was getting in the way. I was living in FEAR…
At this point my digestive system became dysfunctional and fried! I would go on binges of healthy eating just to get "back on track" but until I would relax my mind and let go of whatever it was I was holding onto; a project that I “failed” at, a comment that was made etc ...nothing would really work. I was exhausted! After years of battling my GI issues, skin issues and my internal emotional drama…something had to change. The physical work was easier to handle but at this point i needed more than food to heal the damage.
Over the years, my practice of yoga and healing modalities gave me the courage to stand up for myself. My worth. My health. My life. To do what serves me before what serves everyone else’s “impression” of me. Through this journey into healing I have become aware of my patterns and have worked at shifting from my ego mind to my heart. I believe in sharing my story with you because YOU DESERVE THIS SAME OPPORTUNITY.
I believe in experiencing each moment of life as a precious encounter. Let’s cross paths and unmask your potential so you can start living authentically with compassion and expansion!
