HELLO! I am Natalie… life coach, energy healer, women’s circle leader + yoga teacher… just to name a few. I am excited to be teaming up with Lisa to bring you Tune In with Natalie. A monthly installation on This Organic Girl. Lisa is gifted at offering you straight up, no nonsense, measurable information on health, beauty, organics + living. I am on the other edge of the spectrum…I feel into things, draw on my intuition, inner KNOWING + pull from my studies + trainings (in astrology, psychology, energy, meditation, coaching, Ayurveda + yoga).
A little about me personally… I’ve led several lives in this one and though there have been many shifts + tweaks along the way, one of the most notable was in 2010 when I quit my advertising career. I had been living the “American dream”, climbing the ladder for 15 years, making successively more + more money, owned several houses, been married, traveled for fun + work, was physically fit (or so I thought: washboard abs, running 6 minute miles + an outdoor bootcamp instructor) and had an amazing social life.
The shadow side… I was suffering from anxiety attacks + migraines, self-medicating with wine every night and deep down, wasn’t finding joy in the everyday… simply doing what I thought was expected of me. When I mustered up the courage to quit, I moved into a whirlwind of painful growth…starting with a physical health crisis and leading me through a journey of identifying limiting beliefs, processing emotions + looking clearly at the familial + cultural patterns that had shaped my life thus far, but WEREN’T MINE to begin with. I learned about what I was hiding from myself, what “health” products + practices I had bought into that weren’t really heathy, the commitment it takes to step off the path of least resistance and how REAL the mind/body connection truly is.
It has been a spiritual path of awakening and one I wouldn’t dream of taking back, that has delivered me to where I am today… more awake + inspired than ever before. My journey continues to challenge me to grow when I would stay small + safe… I think that’s what it is supposed to do. However, I am much more aware of how to roll with it, how to dance with the ever changing forms. I have learned to listen within + guide others to do the same. This makes all the difference.
I believe our inner guidance is talking to us all the time and if we aren’t listening, it will get louder + louder until crisis happens. This has certainly been my experience + that of many of the clients I coach. I also believe that if we connect with the larger cycles of our lives + nature, we can tap into this guidance more accurately and find perspective that will steer us back onto the path of our purpose.
I’m going to be writing about what themes are revealing themselves each month…sharing my thoughts based on the moons + the seasons, the planets + the mystery of the non-physical. My hope is that it will support you in seeing the patterns + themes that are emerging in your own life and bring you back to your own inner guide. I’ll offer tips + tools on how to work with the energies and nuggets of wisdom that I’ve picked up along my path.
I adore Lisa + what she is bringing to the world and I am excited to begin, with you.
