My name is Gracie and I am SO happy to e-meet you!
I’m a MindBodySpirit Mentor, Motivational Speaker, Reiki Master and Intuitive Healer (among many other things). Here’s a little more about me and how I came to do what I do…
Today, I enjoy a vibrant life where I’m able to show up to each day as my most radiant self, and serve incredible souls just like you, through a nurtured and thriving Mind, Body and Spirit.
Yesterday, however, was a vastly different story…
Fulfillment comes from Alignment;
Of Mind, Body & Spirit.
It has taken me years of struggle along respective roads of recovery from eating disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and Systemic Lupus to learn the true meaning of Wellness.
During my childhood, I experienced deep trauma and chronic stress. It wasn’t long before I began channelling my anxiety into incredibly damaging eating disorders – anorexia, bulimia, body dysmorphia, the whole shebang. Further trauma in my late teens led to the development of severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This lingered for years and manifested as intense Insomnia, Hypersensitivity, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, while further contributing to my disordered eating and low self-esteem.
Later working as a model in my early twenties during times of even more chronic stress and immune dysfunction further contributed to my health decline, with a complete preoccupation with my external appearance steadily in place as my denial mechanism. At the time, I believed I was simply claiming control of my life the only way I knew how, and that my intentions were pure and good because I was directing all my energy toward my pursuit of a distorted idea of ‘health’. In truth, there was nothing healthy about the way I was neglecting my needs.
Finally, at 24 years old, my body waved the white flag. Months of being completely bed-ridden culminated in a dual diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. As time continued to pass and my condition worsened, my life became a blur of debilitating pain, hospital visits, drug side effects, and hopeless frustration. I suffered a stroke and my disease developed into Cerebral Lupus, where my brain and entire central nervous system were under attack, with the looming threat of another stroke on my horizon if my situation did not improve. I was told that long-term chemotherapy, accompanied by other meds, was my only option. This dark news sparked a bright, light fire within me.
There was another way – I just knew it. And I was set to find it for myself.
My healing began with a deep commitment to my wellbeing – if it didn’t serve me, it was my responsibility to release it. Every day, in every possible way, I began to give myself love. The more I discovered about the art and science of health and happiness through my studies in health and nutrition and my lived experience of this healing path, the more I recognised that my struggles were not just my own. The misalignment of my Mind, Body and Spirit that had given way to various forms of disease and unease throughout my being is sadly commonplace. So many of us compromise and negotiate our Wellness away and deny ourselves the right to live our best life.
As I continued to heal, I envisioned the goodness I embraced, through therapeutic nutrition, movement and rest, mindset training, gentle movement and a spiritual practice, as a solution that could apply to many.
My vision is of you. Yes, a picture of you… an image where you, like me, are empowered to create the health and happiness you so deeply desire and deserve. My mission as a Mentor, Reiki Master, Motivational Speaker and Intuitive Healer is to paint that picture with you. How? By facilitating your highest healing and transformation in Mind, Body and Spirit.
Get ready to access higher heights of health and happiness to sustain a life you truly, madly, deeply LOVE.
It’s time to rise. It’s time to shine.
I can’t wait… Can you?
Love and light,
