Hi, I'm Ali. Welcome to my online home! I'm so happy that you found your way here.
I created this site because I want you to know that you are stronger and more powerful than you can even imagine. And deep inside, you already know that.
Since 2010, I've been guiding women back home. Back to their bodies, back to their purpose, and back to their souls. There have been many ways I've done this- whether through my mentorship and coaching programs, creating beautiful digital homes/websites for dreams to come to life, or creating community and fostering play at Soul Camp. One thing is for certain- I am a champion for miracles, a cheerleader for your inner strength, and a believer in your dreams.
How'd I get here? Good question! Growing up, I struggled.understanding my sensitivity and my emotions, I struggled trying to fit in with everyone else, I struggled with my body and I struggled trusting myself. My body is now my biggest teacher but when I was younger, I felt like a freak. There was my weight struggle where even after thousands of dollars spent on private nutritionists and trainers, I just couldn't keep my weight down. And then there were major health issues that left me feeling like I was given a horrible lot in life. I looked at other girls and thought they were all beautiful and they all just had this innate confidence. Here I was, just trapped in a cage I desperately wanted to get out of.
Until I realized that the cage I was trapped in was an illusion, and I was actually free to be myself...I was just too scared to leave the cage. Nobody chooses us, we have to choose ourselves.
How'd I realize this? I hit rock bottom after graduating college in 2009. I thought that because I did what I was told to do (get the good grades, be healthy, go to a great college, find great friends), everything would just work itself out. I thought the job would fall into my lap, the apartment I wanted would be gorgeous and affordable, and the relationship of my dreams would follow suite. Well, welcome to the real world....that was NOT the case! I felt depressed, lost, angry with myself, and I was left with the fact that I didn't know who I really was or what I really wanted. After years of being who others wanted me to be and doing what they wanted me to do, I lost touch with my Self.
I am so grateful for this time because it drove me to dive head first into my internal world and find myself. For the past seven years, I did just that. My path has brought me on many adventures and I've learned a few things a long the way:
- Forgiveness will set you free.
- When you surrender to where life is taking you, you will be given a life that is 1000x better than what you imagine.
- You are powerful beyond measure.
- You deserve to be gentle with yourself.
- Courage is not the absence of fear, but standing in the face of fear and doing it anyway.
- Vulnerability is sexy.
- If you are reading this, you truly have everything you need within you now.
- All you need is the willingness to make a change, and the rest will follow suite.
- You have the capacity to transform your pain into your greatest joy.
I am forever a student and also am incredibly blessed to be able to guide others back home as well with the tools I've learned. The path to self-realization can be joyous and adventurous, if we choose for it to be!
