Allow Me To Reintroduce Myself
Allow me to re-introduce myself! My story is convoluted, but hopefully inspiring and engaging for your personal path
20 years ago I trained professionally as a Registered Massage Therapist, as I had a talent and a skill in relaxing people with my touch since kindergarten. Body work became my career, and I love it
Personally, I was a logical, analytical, skeptical child — in my head a lot
I was insecure and over-reactive, a recipe for drama drama drama
I people-pleased at times, and frankly was mean at others
I coped with cannabis and binge drinking
I really cared about the world though, and seemingly too much. I knew intrinsically I was connected to nature, and everyone else on some level. I remember when the USA invaded Iraq I lost my shit, and my college housemate told me to tone it down
Can you relate?
One book changed my life in my 20’s though, The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield.
Have you read it?
It vividly described control dramas, including the dynamics of bullies and victims
I learned later, these are important aspects of ego, that work to protect us, yet often accomplish the opposite
I felt these energy-sucking dynamics in my family. It was admittedly a frypan to the face to see how I used them on others too
This was my informal introduction to inner work. I started becoming aware, and began unlearning unhealthy behaviours — my trauma responses
I became more aware of the impact of mental illness and addictions in my family too
How can I better serve others who struggled so much?
I learned how to practice Reiki and acupressure-tapping, which are indispensable techniques.
Along my entrepreneurial path I was formally introduced to personal development, and learned other life-changing teachings & tools
Journaling, affirmations, attitude of gratitude, and meditation became key to evolving my emotional intelligence, of healing and transforming layer by layer like an onion
By learning to play less of a victim and a bully. I started stepping up with the courage of my authentic soul.
From Toastmasters International I gleaned vital communication and leadership skills
I began chairing an eco group I had been a part of. Together we incorporated as MiltonGreen Environmental Association for public education, engagement and advocacy with bittersweet results
In 2016 I took a huge step and enrolled at McMaster University. Even as I questioned if I was smart enough to succeed, I pre-qualified for tuition grants as a mature student, a miracle (or good social structure, but I’ll take it)
Social Psychology became my major, which was perfect as a bridge from mental health to how we operate in society, with Political Science as my minor
I earned a part-time student award first year, and miracles started piling up
I may not have graduated as of yet, but I bravely step up to my calling, gratefully using the knowledge gained to serve with my life purpose
Recruited by the Green Party of Ontario, I became a candidate for my hometown of Milton to stand for social and environmental justice, walking my talk.
The following year, I stood for the Green Party of Canada also, sharing information about policies for people and planet. While not elected, I met some goals, which also seemed like miracles to me
All was progressing according to plan, until the pandemic
The Love Your Vibe Transformation had been introduced to me, beginning with The VIP Mindset Reset Online by CoacHealer Elvira V. Hopper. She is vivacious, and her story shared is inspirational
How she went from working in a shiny-looking career, yet personally suffered from anxiety, depression and panic disorder while being bullied, to becoming an Aligned, Authentic and Fully Self-Expressed Miracle Magnet
She connected many of the teachings and tools that I had learned the hard way — one at a time and on my own — into one virtual course! Plus some original, channeled concepts that deeply served my inner work too. Another miracle
Elvira’s vision included gathering a team of light workers to share their own story, message and magic, and her goals feel synergistic with mine
As the world grappled with COVID-19, my personal and professional interests began to more closely intertwine
I used my time as a nonessential healthcare worker to co-create a 6-Month Group Mentorship Program to hold space for heart-centred humans to be safe, seen, celebrated and supported while practicing with The Love Your Vibe Miracle Mindset teachings and tools in community with flow
While many struggled with isolation, sinking deeper into coping mechanisms, I empathized, yet began metamorphosing in solitude.
I took even deeper radical responsibility, and leaned less on cannabis and alcohol than ever, a personal triumph. I began to get out of my head, and really embody myself. I evolved
While understanding these concepts cognitively is one thing, it is another to practice them practically
Another entirely to embody them so they’re second nature. Like working out, it’s easier and more fun to be motivated by a personal trainer, or in this case a Miracle Mindset Mentor.
Someone who’s been there, learned the hard way, and can shine a light on a path that might otherwise seem obscure
I know how hard it is feeling stuck and disempowered, wanting someone else to fix my problems
Inner work is a paradox. It is intimately personal for sure, we have to do the work. No one else can fix us
And while they can’t fix us, it is incredibly liberating and cathartic to share vulnerable, intimate details, stories, and be truly heard.
To be genuinely witnessed by others, those who have unlearned judgement, who can compassionately empathize
Ask empowering questions to guide us deeper into ourselves, when too many others change the topic, to themselves or the weather because they’re uncomfortable
My gifts of curiosity and empathy combine into the superpower of emotional intelligence, and how it can serve you, with your consent
Indeed, from all my experience, personal to political to professional, personal development is the inner solution to the world’s challenges
To solve climate change, corporate greed, white supremacy, human trafficking, domestic violence, starvation and biodiversity loss, I see that we must relearn to reconnect within — so we can better reconnect with the world
When we can better recognize and integrate our egos, we will better collaborate on the necessary outer solutions
Simplistic — naive even — you might say, yet the ripple effect has proven undeniable. And the inner work is anything but simple.
It takes more courage to admit to yourself your inner trauma, shame, grief and insecurities, than it does to over-work, over-drink, gamble, sleep around, or take it out on your loved ones.. etc.
In 2021 I re-branded my sole-proprietorship, which honestly terrified me to the point of suicide ideation.
I made the decision to surrender my financially secure professional license, when I hadn’t even earned my undergraduate degree yet
My calling to serve at a higher level was stronger, in a world that needs deeper mental and emotional wellness solutions, sooner than later
From an RMT with Dynamic Balance Holistic Healing, I became Holistic Eleanor who facilitates Body Work and Inner Work for your Empowerment, Embodiment and Evolution 🦋
