'More than anything, I love to see people move past the issues that block their happiness and fulfillment in life.'
I believe the most powerful healing force is within you. As a Guide and Mentor, I am a conduit to help you experience yourself.
Naomi: I have always wanted to see people move past thoughts, beliefs, and emotions that prevent them from finding happiness and fulfillment. Perhaps this is because I spent my life looking for healing for myself.
My passion is to provide a place where people who seek healing can feel safe and cared for, basking in the warmth of being truly seen and heard by another human being.
In my life, I have had to work through symptoms of depression, disassociation, emotional repression, and needing to keep people around me happy. A few years ago, while still working as a medical transcriptionist, I realized how much the subject of healing captivates me, and I decided to pursue this passion. I began a degree in psychology, which was a lot of work but still enjoyable.
Then, some unexpected life events triggered unhealed pain from trauma and flooded me with physical and emotional symptoms. Not only was I experiencing extreme overwhelm, feelings of low self-worth, perfectionism and need for control, lack of autonomy, guilt, shame, rejection, and more surfaced. I could not break free from these old patterns. Back pain and tension headaches increased, and my left eye felt like it had stopped working. This state felt intolerable.
Fortunately, I came across the work of both a reiki healer and a natural vision specialist/body-mind-soul coach who played important roles in my healing journey. I was able to release many years’ of repressed grief and find a real sense of self. I learned how many of my physical symptoms had an emotional or psychological basis.
These practitioners taught me there was another way to live—that is, intuitively, choosing what is in alignment with my heart and my life’s purpose. I soon realized that university had started me on my path, but the constant performance, time, and energy it took were not healthy for me. I had to challenge my own ideas of achievement, while allowing my inner self to direct me to something that would be healthy for me. The path would need to align with my values and my knowledge of the body’s energy and ability to heal itself. As soon as I became willing to receive this message, other, more fulfilling opportunities began to present themselves.
I have since pursued healing modalities that feel in line with my values of listening, acceptance, and healing. I am now certified in Levels I and II of Usui Holy Fire Reiki (energy healing) and provide in-person and distance reiki sessions.
I have also begun first-year training in INside-OWT (IN-OWT) to become a body-mind-soul coach and self-healing mentor. INside-OWT is an inner process that guides individuals to heal as they acknowledge and align with the truths that their body, mind, and soul are speaking.
Summer: I grew up in one of the wealthiest communities in North America, yet I felt something was missing and lived with a desire for ‘more’. I grew up in a non-religious and also a non-spiritual family, and I grew up sick.
I think Mother Theresa puts it best:
“There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread… The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty - it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There's a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.” -
I realize that I was Soul sick and desired a sense of meaning and purpose in life. On a physical level, I had chronic migraines, eczema, irritable bowel, strep infections, dismenorrhea (painful periods), bouts of back pain, and I ended up with pre-cervical cancer like all my other female relatives. I also had a very strong prescription for myopia (nearsightedness). I used to think these were minor symptoms and normal to have.
Many of us are sick because we ignore our Soul’s messages which are there for us personally, but also for the greater good. The world needs us to show up and challenge the systems that make us all sick.
Throughout my life, I was guided to heal all of my “physical” symptoms, and I was shown a powerful and natural 5-step process of healing from the inside out that honours the language of the soul and is a universal foundation for healing. It is not a process I created, but one I observe as inherent to life. I simply put words to it, as guided intuitively.
Re-learning and remembering this process (because we already know it on a fundamental soul level) can be done in five steps and can be easily remembered by the acronym IN-OWT or INside-OWT. I explain this process in my book: Soul-Side Out; Universal Laws to Healing and Living Your Best Life. In my book I tell my story and share how YOU are also able to live your best life through becoming aware of the universal laws and the natural process of INside-OWT.
As a Body-Mind-Soul Coach I understand that I am of service to you at a universal level of consciousness and I am a conduit or witness to empowering you to come to a clear and resonant personal understanding of your symptoms.
Symptoms are a form of manifestation. When you come to understand why you have manifested them, the energetic reason for your symptoms disappears and there is a clear and undeniable shift that takes place that stops the need for your symptoms and replaces them with life-serving energy.
If you experience anxiety, depression, eczema or other skin disorders, ulcers, recurring infections, irritable bowel, migraines, chronic fatigue, burn-out or fibromyalgia, chronic pain, back pain, cancer, or unexplained physical pains, you are likely running an energetic or emotional pattern that is not in alignment with your true nature, your authentic self and/or your spirit/soul's purpose.
I intuitively developed INside-OWT as I found that traditional and other forms of 'therapy' were inadequate. Exploring her childhood, teen years, relationships and emotional and spiritual conflicts though the INside-OWT process, she healed many physical symptoms; Myopia, Eczema, Back Pain, Irritible Bowel, Chronic Migraines, Pre-cancerous Cerivcal Cells and a Streptococal Blood infection.
INside-OWT is a natural process that emphasizes the power of inner knowledge and resources. Along with reduced prescriptions, INside-OWT is the primary method I used to improve her vision. Beginning with a prescription of -5.0 for myopia, I was tested in 2006 by her Optometrist and found to be legal to drive without glasses.
I invite you to shift their perspective of frustration and fear to seeing your illness or symptoms as allies that have something important to say.
I have facilitated dozens and dozens of Healing Retreats and programs, worked in several hospitals and alongside her colleagues at West Edmonton Naturopathic Centre
