Invisible threads are the strongest ties – A connection founded on trust and spiritual awareness, positivity and support, Rachael’s presence in my life has already left an indelible imprint upon my consciousness. Her ability to exuberate such vivacity and share her profound charisma not only empowers me but teaches me to appreciate all that I am, to embrace my fears and challenge myself. Her beaming smile is infectious and her internal beauty has really warmed my heart and my own personal story.
Rachael’s integrity is endorsed through her positive self-acknowledgement, commitment to pursuing her own optimum health but more deeply, she motivates, teaches and shares her journey with us. I am forever grateful that our paths have crossed and I see Rachael as a mentor, and a truly admirable and unique spirit.
You empower, you inspire, you simply believe.
[Simply put, in a nutshell, who are you?] - I am a kind, giving, loving spirit living in a beautiful soul. I am a healer at my core, someone who loves connecting with people. I find people fascinating. I am someone who lives life with very little judgement of others. I believe we are all doing, the best we can each and everyday.
[What does style mean to you?] - “ Style is a sense of my personal expression, expressing the beauty within myself. It’s a reflection of how I feel internally. My style is a place where I express my confidence, femininity, freedom and grace. I make an effort daily to feel amazing in my own personal style. Colours light up my life.”
[How did you begin to uncover your core being, your personal truth?] - ”My journey too uncovering my core being has been a challenging one but very rewarding. I have found my personal truth through being honest with myself and others, reaching a point of forgiveness and allowing myself to be vulnerable. Allowing myself to feel, see and understand the pain, anger, frustration and sadness that I have experienced in life, has allowed my soul to open right up and live in it’s essence. My personal healing has allowed me to step right into my true purpose, which is healing women intuitively. I have learnt how important it is too feel, listen, believe and trust in my intuitive voice. I would not change any life experience that I have had, I believe I have been given each and everyone of them, as a gift to find my personal truth.”
[What is it that makes you empower/motivate yourself?] - ”My driving force that motivates and empowers me are several things. Seeing my mother go through so much internal pain throughout my childhood and loosing my father at a young age, are my two biggest motivators. Something I realised at a young age is that, ‘life is short’ and we must make the most of every single day. Each day, I try to live my life with purpose, passion, gratitude, energy, love and balance. I am so grateful that I have taken time out in my life to heal and step into an empowered Woman, who now loves herself unconditionally. Things that empower me; family, friends, love, food, health, exercise, nature, animals, women, a true deep connection with people and guiding women to heal.”
[Why raw food, how does this choice influence the rest of your life?] – “Raw food has been a big part of my life for the past 8 years, I was intuitively guided to this way of enjoying living plant based foods. Throughout my childhood and teenage years I felt a very heavy energy around my body. The day I started eating raw food the energy started to lift, my body spoke loud and clear, that this food feed my soul and energised my spirit.
When I eat and look at a beautifully prepared raw dish, I can feel the force of energy it gives my body, it’s incredible. I feel light, alive, a sense of clarity and completely satisfied. Still to this day 8 years on, I feel the same effects. I was very fortunate last year to travel to the USA and attend the Matthew Kenney Academy. This experience opened my eyes to another world of raw food. The academy is an educational institution of raw and cutting edge living cuisine. People think raw food is a simple salad or sliced carrot and celery, it’s the totally opposite it’s about flavours, presentation, colours, nutrients, nutrition and energy that’s in living food. It’s all in the education, I feel the world is starting to become more consciously aware of the importance of the food that we feed our bodies, which is very exciting.”
[Life can throw anything at us. Mentally, how do you cope with staying true to you and not allowing negativity to shadow your spirit?] – I was bought up with a Father, that told us constantly ‘there is a positive, in every negative’. This speech of expression has definitely taught me a lot throughout my life. It has been a very big gift, that I was given at a young age. I choose to see the best in things. The way we live life is a choice, the language we use and mindset we have is a choice. I am human and I definitely have times, where I catch myself being negative. What I have learnt over the years are different tools to change and correct my mindset when I hear myself being negative, this has helped me a lot, this is what I guide and teach women about.
