Hi there! I’m Misty and I truly want to thank you for stopping by to visit my site. I understand how valuable your time is and I appreciate you for sharing some of it with me.
I suppose you could say that I stumbled into this world by complete accident. The truth is once I started realizing how much of our outside reality is actually dictated by how we’re feeling inside and what we’re allowing inside our bodies (not just food, but thoughts, emotions, toxic relationships, work stress, lack of self-love, self-neglect, etc.) I felt called to be a conduit for all these amazing tools I’ve gathered, quite honestly for myself to heal through my own traumas, tragedies and losses, to flow from me to you.
I love this amazing life we get. I love life and I love living. As much as I love life, I also am deeply aware that life is painfully short, we’re reminded of that every day. Through the years, I have learned to find more joy and gratitude in the most seemingly insignificant places and things than ever before, and I believe it’s partly due to experiencing the depth of loss and suffering on many levels from many things. In my healing journey I sought out healers, spiritual teachings, solitude, connection and so many other wonderful things that have all helped me to heal in my own life and become quite a different person than I was even just a year ago. Year after year I’m constantly amazed how far I’ve come, even if I don’t feel I’m anywhere close to where I want to be. It’s all about the journey. It’s my joy to bring all these things to a world that is constantly hurting – not as a fix, but as a processing.
Here’s a little bit of my story…. I grew up in a very Western medicine household. Bad diets, bad lifestyle, medication abound Western medicine household. It wasn’t until I was out of college and about 6 years into my corporate career when I started looking into the holistic world, and boy did my world get blown wide open. I had already been diagnosed with a handful of diseases – the common U.S. ones of asthma and allergies, but also other autoimmune issues like Lupus, Grave’s Disease and Lichen Sclerosus. While the physical illnesses were very real and took me a very long time to help my body heal itself, the real work came in as I had to peel back the layers and cleanse through a lot of emotional traumas, past stories, layers of guilt, shame, pressure, etc. in order to find my authentic self and live the life I truly wanted to live.
So here we are years later. With lots of food and lifestyle changes, along with severely detoxing my life on many levels, I’m now a thirty-something small business owner living minimally with her dog actively creating the life I see in my mind’s eye, brick by brick, with the soul mission of helping awaken people to their ability to help their body, mind and soul heal and truly fill their lives with more authentic joy than ever before. While I don’t ever believe our work on ourselves is ever done, I’m healthier and happier now than I’ve ever been, my vision of my future is vibrant and colorful and I honestly owe it all to making my health and self-care a priority. While I struggle daily with it just like anyone else, I truly believe that has made all the difference in my health and self-growth.
I always love asking people what their dream is. Mine? To live in a place (or many places as a digital nomad) amongst the creatives and the visionaries – where there’s never a reason to be bored. To travel, to experience life, culture, food, people all around the globe – not from books or photos, but from people’s real experiences. To contribute my strengths to the world in a meaningful and lasting way. To reach the end of my life and truly know I lived the depth of my life, not just the length. To surround myself with the most loving, inspiring, open-minded, fun people that I can pour love into with reciprocity. To give in any way I feel called. To constantly grow, expand, stretch. To live my own definition of freedom and success. To live each day with vibrancy and enthusiasm that naturally magnetizes the same kind of people, experiences and miracles into my life. To inspire people. To say hell yes to anything and everything that lights me up. To truly live, not just be alive.
Now it’s your turn. What are your dreams?
