I'm Shae, and I'm delighted to share with you how to fully express yourself & communicate more powerfully.
I have always been fascinated by self expression in all forms. When I was a little girl, I wanted to be an actress, artist, and writer.
I was super expressive as a child, but I was told over again to "be quiet" or "be normal." I also learned through the modeling of people around me that it's best to 'hold our tongues' and don't say the things we want or need to say, to "keep the peace."
So, instead of continuing to express my colorful, playful, vibrant self, I shut my voice down, made myself smaller, and didn't speak up for my needs, wants, or boundaries.
That was until a big life transformation. I journeyed through mindfulness, self awareness, spiritual development, and a rich understanding of the patterns I'd cultivated. I finally understood that if I wanted the life and relationships I desired, I had to unravel them and come back to the true me.
I went back to my roots. I started dancing again, doing more art, expressing myself in creative ways. I started writing as a profession, and then went into meditation and yoga teaching.
That little girl that wanted to be all those things actually got her dream - I even started acting (and still do) mostly in comedy skit videos and comedy improv. I dived into masculine and feminine embodiment.
I looked at the dynamics of my family and intimate relationships and began to understand where I was still afraid to express myself. I learned through courses, workshops, and retreats how to reclaim my authentic expression. And now, my mission is to serve others who are on this path - especially when it comes to communication in relationships.
You see, being fully myself, and letting my truth lead my relationships in open-hearted and mindful ways - THAT is what makes me feel fulfilled & FULL. And it can do that for you, too.
How did I heal?
I went through darkness to get there. I was challenged, hurting, confused and shut off. My healing journey was sparked from a mental and physical illness after facing death & finally dealing with my deepest unresolved trauma I had been carrying for years.
This healing journey - which took a lot of conscious work on my end - led me to finally free myself from attempting to please others and meet what I thought what was expected of me.
I went through a deep process of repatterning my brain, body, and spirit, moved to Bali, and immersing myself in mindfulness, movement, meditation, feminine arts, teaching skills, and communication in relationships.
There are many paths to peace, healing & harmony.
Mine was steeped in practices of mindfulness, creativity, art, writing, dance and speaking out and sharing with others. I practiced every day. I learned the tools to shift limiting beliefs, release stagnant energy, find healthy ways to feel and express emotion, and listen to my intuition to make empowered and creative decisions for my life.
I draw from Taoism, Buddhist philosophy, cognitive behavioural therapy, hypnotherapy, somatic movement, and more. My work has been influenced by the likes of Alan Watts, Thich Nhat Hahn, Eckhart Tolle Wayne Dyer, David Deida, John Wineland, Alison Armstrong, among others.
"You have the capacity to expand your self-awareness in such a way that you ignite deep transformation, unleash your most authentic, fully expressed self, & live from a place of deep grounding & solidity.
You have all you need within you to feel inner peace.
You have all you need to embody that in your every day life, moment to moment.
I'm here to help you learn how."
