Check Out Melissa Smith’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Melissa Smith.

Hi Melissa, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
As a former corporate plane chaser, I understand how living outside of yourself causes severe health issues. I was a long-time sufferer of anxiety and chronic digestive issues and it wasn’t until I found myself in the ER that I knew I had to make a change. That was the beginning of my healing journey. It has been a winding road, filled with many peaks and valleys and I continue to learn about myself every day.

I believe that self-love, forgiveness (self), and freedom are the keys to finding your true joy. It’s in the small mundane boring details of life, the slowing down, and connection with self and others that you find who you truly are. In blocking the noise, we find the love of self and our higher power. In essence, coming home to you.

I am a certified Holistic Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Health Education and Exercise Science, a Master’s degree in Cardiovascular Rehabilitation, and am a Kundalini yoga teacher, breathwork facilitator, and sound healer.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Health and healing are not linear and there will be many peaks and valleys along the way. It is learning to trust the innate wisdom of your body of what feels right for you and listening to your intuition, gut/heart vs what is considered “normal”.

Having a background in healthcare and medicine has helped me understand the biology of the human body, its complexities, and its ability to return to homeostasis. That is all it is ever trying to do, return to balance. It is the same with our spirituality, a return to our truest form, love.

It is our spiritual awareness and connection to self that helps us step into the realm of healing.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I consider myself a Spiritual Embodiment and Alignment Coach.

Through my years of working in healthcare and in my spiritual practice and training, I combine Neuroscience and Spirituality to help women go from being stuck, unfulfilled, and knowing they are meant for more, to living their highest most vibrant selves. I essentially teach you how to upgrade yourself on a cellular level. I specialize in helping women come home to their true selves through breathwork, meditation, mantra, and sound healing.

I am most proud of my own healing journey and the willingness to explore the shadows of myself and listen to my intuition.

Can you share something surprising about yourself?
I grew up on a cattle ranch in Nebraska and have a great love and respect for the land, animals, and mother earth.
