WITH DAILY ALCHEMY YOU WILL BE GUIDED TO AND THROUGH EXPERIENCES WHERE REALISATION IS BIRTHED. YOU WILL BE INSPIRED TO EXPLORE THE NATURE OF YOUR SACRED SELF AND YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HER SO THAT YOU CAN OPEN TO A HEART CENTRED JOURNEY OF COMPASSION, FIERCE GRACE AND WISDOM.
Daily Alchemy is the heart of my well-being journey, it is founded on my own healing work and research into the nature of Self, ancient healing practices and the transformative journey of opening to the Sacred.
For as long as I can remember I have been insatiably curious about what it means to be well. Why do some people struggle while others find a way to thrive, often despite the most challenging circumstances?
The depths of this enquiry has propelled a journey of transformational tuition in spiritual counselling, hypnotherapy, NLP, earth shamanic practices, sacred plant medicine, bodywork, dance and yoga. All of which have helped me to move beyond the constraints of conditioning, limiting beliefs and ancestral patterning; into a deep unshakable sense of knowing who I am and how I’m most authentically called to express myself in this life.
My work, and my passion is helping women, like you, become familiar with your inner dance to awaken to the precious gifts of power, delight, creativity and that most rare jewel - your authentic self. And I am wholeheartedly dedicated to facilitating and holding space for inner transformation, for you and myself alike.
I welcome you on this transformational path that awakens the heart, body and soul of who we really are as women.
Hey I'm Jade
DO YOU BELIEVE...
THERE IS MORE TO LIFE, MORE TO LOVE, MORE TO WHO YOU REALLY ARE?
WHEN I STARTED THIS HEALING JOURNEY IT BEGAN
WITH A HUNGER...
Have you ever felt yourself feeling a bit lost? Bored? Lonely? Fed up? Wondering what the point is to all of this? (I know that’s a bit deep to start off with but hear me out!)
I believed for 14 years that I wasn’t good enough until I lost weight. I wasn’t happy enough until I lost weight. I wasn’t this enough... or that enough...
I spent 14 years of my life being a diet obsessed insecure individual who suffered from low self esteem, feelings of not being quite good enough and debilitating need to please others thrown in for good measure. I was hungry for so much more in my life, yet I didn’t know what and I didn’t know how.
I thought food was my problem.
I thought my body (her weight, size and shape) was the barrier keeping me from my happiness.
I thought my lack of willpower was my issue.
I thought my inability to stick to plans, programs and regimes was the reason I felt like I did.
It turned out that my struggles with food were symptomatic, symbolic and metaphoric.
Unbeknown to me, I had a hungry soul.
A WOMAN'S SOUL IS LIKE A MAGICAL CONTAINER WHICH IS BIGGER AND MORE SPACIOUS INSIDE THAN WE COULD EVER IMAGINE FROM THE OUTSIDE. IT HOLDS TREASURES AND WONDERS, TERRORS AND MONSTERS, DESIRES AND PASSIONS.
MANY OF US NEVER LOOK INSIDE BECAUSE WE FEAR WHAT WE MAY FIND (OR WHAT MAY FIND US) AND HOW IT WILL MAKE US FEEL, BUT DEEP DOWN WE ARE CURIOUS.
THE REVELATION COMES, FOR THOSE OF US DARING ENOUGH TO PEER WITHIN, THAT OUR JOURNEY AS WOMEN ONLY BEGINS WHEN WE TURN INWARD.
YOU DESERVE TO...
KNOW YOURSELF AS YOU REALLY ARE, NOT AS SOCIETY HAS CASTE YOU.
FINDING THE SACRED WITHIN...
Coming home to your Sacred Self is about getting out of your head and into your body; learning to listen deeply to the pulsating, cyclic wisdom that moves within you.
There is no 'one-way' of doing this. In fact, this pilgrimage asks you to let go of the should's, could's and right ways, to discover a way of your own.
The key is to surrender the false ideas, beliefs, opinions, attachments, neediness, control and the hardened conditioning that creates the 'story' you tell yourself about who you are. The person the world has shaped you to be.
This is when you can begin to feed your Soul.
For me, my journey home to the Sacred started living on a rural block of land, set amidst the native bush of New Zealand; a stick house with no windows, no doors, no power, no running water, imagine camping... full time.
Talk about breaking the confines of societal living... thinking... existing!
I took off my watch and discovered a way of moving through time that was not linear.
I learned to commune with nature, to know her changing seasons, to feel her moving and breathing beneath my bare feet.
The moon and I became dear friends.
The days would be long when she was full, and I would dance under the night sky and even garden in her silvery light.
Then, with her, I would wane into the darkness, going to bed shortly after the sun went down (because there is very little else you can do in the dark.)
After years of no menstruation, I took the hormonal implant out of my arm and attuned myself to the rhythm of life and death flowing within me. It turns our my fluctuating moods and energy were not random at all!
I discovered sacred practices that served me, instead of trying to fit into the box of a one-size-fits-all spiritual experience.
I sat at the foothills of the Himalayas and chanted with the Sadhus.
I rested under the shade of a bodhi tree in Sri Lanka and listened to the teachings of the Buddha.
I journeyed through the Sacred Valley of the Incas awakening to the way of the Shamans.
I sat in circle in the presence of wise women and learned about intimacy, womb wisdom, pleasure and 'HER-story'.
I read books, danced, sang, learned the healing power of sound and embodied movement.
I began to listen... deeply.
I came home to my creative gifts, my voice, my body.
I started to experience a connection to Spirit, to Soul, in ways that words cannot describe. A deep-seated feeling within and an unspoken conversation that nourished me to the bone.
I began to relish in the deep revelations, the unbridled curiosity, the ecstatic inner dance and I knew - deep in my bones - that by stepping onto this path there was no turning back.
You do nott have to quit life as you know it and become a 'hippie' as I did, but you can benefit from what I have learned along the way...
AS A TRANSFORMATIONAL SELF-CARE GUIDE
I CAN HELP YOU...
LIVE YOUR TRUTH
To know your inner voice, to trust it and the guidance it offers and to let it instil trust in all of the decisions and actions that you make.
To meet yourSelf whole-heartedly with openness and compassion, to accept all the parts that make you whole, the good, the bad and the Divine!
To live in harmony with your cycles and the guiding influence of your cyclic nature.
PRACTICE TRANSFORMATIONAL SELF-CARE
To explore new ways of nurturing the relationship you have with yourSelf and to be fully committed to that relationship.
To make your state of well-being a priority that begins inward and radiates out into the world.
To discover what it is that your Soul is REALLY hungry for.
MAKE A CONSCIOUS CONNECTION WITH LIFE
To transform your routines into rituals and make the mundane magical.
To honour your part in something much bigger, much grander, a universal web of life that is intrinsically linked to all living things.
To discover that you are both a giver and receiver of life and that you have the power to choose what you give and what you receive.
LET'S KEEP IT REAL
I AM NO GURU...
... and I don’t have all the answers. I make mistakes and get mired in fear and self-doubt, just like the rest of humanity.
But my commitment is to bring you the very best of what I’m living and learning, and keep it real and honest as I go. So please don’t expect perfect polish (I’m too plain-spoken for that) but do expect thought-provoking ideas, timeless wisdom, some light heartedness and an unwavering devotion to help you live your most expansive, expressive and meaningful life.
THIS IS NOT A ONE WAY STREET...
YOU WILL GET OUT, WHAT YOU PUT IN.
THIS PATH IS NOT FOR EVERYONE & I HONOUR THAT
While the journey of transformation can be difficult, the good news is that you can start to experience more of, what I call, your ‘sacred self’ very quickly. Consequently, you can enjoy life much more as a result as you move along the path towards fully integrating and accessing your true nature.
I aim to share effective healing methods for transformation, and resources to help you express and fully embody a state of sacred, spiritual, infinite wellness.
It is important to recognise right at the beginning of this work, that it is an individual journey and requires an individual commitment and therefore a level of maturity.
There is no magic pill, or endpoint to be achieved and no one can do the work for you. As such, the process and the determination to succeed on the journey is an individual thing.
As a transformational self-care guide, I am prepared to meet you wherever you are along your path to support this work, and as a fellow traveller walking this unknown road, I wish you wonder, joy and grace along the way.
If you’ve read this far, thank you. I hope this is just the beginning of our connection. And, I’d love to learn more about you. The best way to share and stay connected is to join me in sacred circle in our Facebook Group where you can access resources, workshops and deep conversation with a growing community.
