What inspired you to start a business in the wellness industry?
It was my natural path although I resisted for many years. As a young child, my mother exposed me to highly influential spiritual teachers like Stuart Wilde, Marianne Williamson, Louise Hay & James Allen. I loved all of the books and audiotapes that we would listen to but as a young adult, I was interested in being a medical doctor, a neurosurgeon. God always has a way of nudging you in the right direction, but we often ignore the call in pursuit of worldly status and success.
In 2014, I lost my job, was in a 5-year toxic relationship and my Mother, who was my best friend, was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of cancer. My life was flipped upside down and within a year, my mother died suddenly, my relationship ended and I was unemployed. I struggled with thoughts of suicide, was extremely depressed and was at the lowest point of my life. Thank God for my brother Iman. I moved in with him, started counseling, and began traveling for work and my life slowly began to get back on track. 1 year later I enrolled myself in a 10-day healthy lifestyle detox program and loved it so much that I became a Certified Healthy Lifestyle Educator and began teaching holistic detoxification.
What are the key components to becoming the healthiest and highest version of yourself?
There are three key components to becoming the healthiest and highest version of yourself. First, understand who you are in God. Secondly, connect to your higher purpose and make all of your decisions in alignment with that purpose. Thirdly, get rid of the toxic thoughts, beliefs, habits, and emotions that have kept you stuck and out of alignment with your higher self.
“Vibrational Alignment” is a new concept to many, can you define it and share three steps to achieving this?
Sure. Vibrational alignment is the process in which you align with your ideal self, your goals, and your dreams. You become the person that you have to be in order for you to match the life and experiences that you want to have. During this process, you want to identify exactly who you want to be, who you have been and what thoughts, behaviors and habituated ways of being you have to change in order to align with the highest version of self.
What is next for you and your brand?
I am looking forward to collaborating and partnering with other brands that understand the importance of health and wellness and who are on a mission to bring education of Holistic Lifestyle training to their audiences. Also, I am very excited to be hosting a series of Healing Retreats in the fall.
