Hi! I'm Morella :)
Let me tell you a little about my journey:
You see, I’ve known some dark places in my life, and I don’t mean caves or manholes. I mean the dark times when everything looks bleak... the perfect storm of being sick, broken-hearted, and lost in life, all at once.
On my quest to find my way out of the proverbial belly of the beast, I gained a diverse set of tools and experience that I share with fellow adventurers (aka. my clients.)
I know in my bones that every one of us are meant to thrive. It doesn’t matter what the hurdles look like, I KNOW it’s possible. I had some big hurdles that kept me stuck for years...
I had really bad cystic acne; the kind that is painful to look at and even more painful to be a prisoner of. I also had horrendous, chronic allergies and hormone issues that plagued me in my 20’s and 30’s. They’re still the first sign my body gives me when things are off balance.
I felt utterly lost in my career and finances. In my 20’s I discovered I hated what I was doing and I had no clue who I was or what I liked. I also unconsciously held a chronic mindset of lack that showed up in my struggle to thrive financially. I had inherited a pattern of always noticing what was missing in my life (family, love, money, happiness...) and therefore seemed to always struggle, never quite having my dreams come true.
I was the victim of sexual trauma in college and later an emotionally abusive relationship that left me battered. I also had the childhood hurts of my parents’ divorce and being unconsciously aware of how much they had hurt each other emotionally. All of this showed up in my 12-year story of longing for a committed relationship, but always falling in love with men who weren’t ready to commit. I discovered that even in the worst of relationships, I’d unconsciously bend myself into a pretzel to avoid being abandoned.
In 2007, I experienced the very low point where even my faith was gone. I felt that I had nothing to reach for to pull me out, and deeply understood the darkness and despair that can drive someone to take their own life. It’s one of the most excruciating experiences one can have.
Thankfully, I’m a warrior and an adventurer. In every one of these areas, I was unable to settle for things as they were, and wallow in anything less than joy and peace.
I know you are a warrior too, and you know you want a joyful, peaceful, fulfilling life too. You are wired for it.
We share that.
In my adventure to figure out my career and finances, heal my acne/allergies/hormones and find the love of my life…I went on tons of retreats, attended grad school at Columbia, studied nutrition coaching, hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic programming, became a yoga teacher, took countless courses and worked with healers, teachers and shamans.
Everything helped. And it has all become the foundation of what I do. Because I know the depths of pain a human being can feel (on almost every front) and I know that it's not where we're meant to stay, I am profoundly committed to helping others find their way to thriving.
HERE'S WHAT I'VE LEARNED:
I’ve learned how to nourish and heal my body; and I've learned to listen to my body's messages.
I've learned about harnessing the power of my mind, and I’m getting better and better at it! Our subconscious mind runs the show 90% of the time. We need to program it for health, success and happiness.
I’ve learned about my gifts in helping others understand, move and release emotion, and as they get better at it, they return to a more consistent state of peace and joy.
I’ve been growing in my spiritual practice as well, and as I do, I find that life unfolds with greater ease.
My adventure brought me to create a career I love, healed the wounds of emotional traumas of the past, and I met the kindest man on the face of the earth, who is now my husband. And oh yeah, I healed my cystic acne, allergies and hormone issues that plagued me for over a decade.
The adventure of life is an ever-unfolding path of growth and discovery. Our problems are but hurdles that we can overcome. The further we go on this adventure, the better we become at jumping over the bumps in our way... and it ALL gets so much more fun!
Your life is meant to be extraordinary and fill you with joy through every breath, hug, delicious nourishing bite, every musical note and adventure.
You can do this too. I know it.
Let me help you tell your greatest story.
