When your faith is
greater than your fear,
Hi! I’m Amy
I’m a spiritual teacher and a mindset coach.
My spiritual journey started in 4th grade when my family moved from Toronto to San Diego.
This was the first time in my life that I had experienced any major challenges in my life.
All of a sudden I had to make new friends and I felt behind in my classes.
Even though my parents were supportive, I was super hard on myself.
I thought that I wasn’t smart enough and that I didn’t fit in.
My negative self-talk continued on with me through high school. I compared myself to other women, I criticized my body when I looked in the mirror, and I desperately tried to fit in with the popular kids.
I started to develop physical health issues as a result of my toxic mindset as well as anxiety and depression.
I went to Western doctors to try to fix my digestion and I went to a therapist for my depression.
Eventually after being tired of feeling bloated, uncomfortable, and frustrated about my weight, I started to look at alternative methods for healing. I dove into studying about nutrition and fitness. I realized that medication wasn’t the only answer and that I could actually do something to make myself feel better.
I become empowered around my health and started to make significant changes to my lifestyle.
But there was one thing that still didn’t change.
I was still depressed. My mind constantly went to thoughts of self-judgment and self-doubt.
I felt confused about what I wanted to study in college. I felt once again that I didn’t fit in, and I felt like I wasn’t smart enough to take science classes for nutrition or fitness.
I settled for taking classes in Business Entrepreneurship because my dad was an entrepreneur.
Shortly after graduating from college I went back to school to become a Holistic Health Coach and Clinical Nutritionist. I wanted to help other women to feel empowered around their health and weight loss.
I moved back to San Diego and started my nutrition coaching business. I started dating a nice man who fit the mold of what my family approved of. We dated for 3 years and then we got married. We bought a house, and got the cutest dog ever.
But I continued to battle with the questions “why am I so unhappy,” “why do I feel so empty inside?”
I started searching for the answers. I read books, listened to podcasts, went to workshops, and started to understand that I had far more power over my thoughts than I knew.
For the first time I became aware that I was the one who was making myself so unhappy and that I was the one standing in my own way.
I started to ask myself a question that I had never asked before….
What do I really want?
For my whole life I did what everyone else wanted me to do. I went to school, I started my own business, I got married, and you can guess what was supposed to happen next….
I realized that I had been trying to please everyone else and trying to fit in so much so that I didn’t even know who I really was.
My anxiety and depression had gotten so bad at this point that I was waking up at 4am with thoughts spinning through my mind.
Something inside of me told me it was time to ‘go within.’
I tip-toed out my bedroom while my husband and my dog were fast asleep and I sat down on my meditation pillow.
I turned on a guided mediation because I couldn’t stand the thought of complete silence with my own thoughts.
During my meditation, I had a ‘aha’ moment… I realized that I had been searching for my happiness outside of myself and relying on other people to make me happy.
But the reason why I was unhappy and unfulfilled in the first place was because of the negative thoughts that were running through my mind. And I finally understood that no one could change those thoughts other than me.
The veil had been lifted.
I started to see how much my negative mindset was impacting my life. And I realized that if I could change my mindset then I would be able to change my life.
I dove into the research to learn how to successful shift my negative thoughts to positive ones. I learned about Subconscious Programming and the Law of Attraction. I tried all different types of meditations, and I started to actually implement the mindset practices that I had been learning about over the past 2 years.
Within a few days, I went from being overwhelmed and confused to having more clarity and more energy than I had in years.
I reached a turning point. I remember sitting in meditation one day and asking myself if I had the courage to change my life. The question that kept coming up was…
“Am I willing to risk it all?”
Am I willing to finally put my happiness first instead of trying to be the woman that everyone else wanted me to be?
Am I willing to believe that I can have it all and that the Universe would fully support me if I took the leap?
The answer was YES.
I was so tired of living a life that wasn’t true to who I am.
I wanted to be myself. I wanted to love myself. I wanted to be happy. I wanted to feel comfortable in my body. I wanted to be able to express myself without feeling like I would be judged by others. I wanted to surround myself with people who were open-minded and growth-oriented. I wanted to live near the ocean.
I decided to start over.
I rewrote my future
and became the co-author of my life story
instead of following the path that I thought I should take.
I got divorced, I started a new business, and I moved to a new area.
Seemingly out of nowhere, I started to meet incredible new friends. For the first time since 4th grade I finally started to feel like I could be myself and fit in.
My business took off, my health improved, I lost weight with ease, and I felt confident to be the most authentic version of myself.
And, from that place you can create fulfilling career, call in your dream relationship, and feel safe to be your authentic self in all areas of your life.
And, I’ll show you what it feels like to be supported by an empowered sisterhood so that you never feel like ‘you don’t fit in’ again.
You don’t have to do this alone, it’s way more fun and effective when you have someone to show you the way.
