What is your name & location?
Hey We Heal Too family I'm Racheal, born, raised and living in Brooklyn, NY, but love to travel.
How do you help people heal?
I help people heal by providing holistic wellness coaching along with other supplemental products and services.
What type of benefits does your method of healing provide?
Holistic Wellness Coaching allows people to tune into themselves, take gentle steps to the desires they have for themselves. It is a method of being held accountable for your overall wellness needs in an unbiased and supported way.
When did you realize that you wanted to help heal people/why did you start?
I always knew I wanted to work to assist people along their journey but stepped into my role as a Holistic Wellness Coach in 2015. Prior to this I had been experiencing a lot of waves in my own wellness and began to notice that those around me were experiencing this as well. Tying in my purpose of nurturing the life of the next generation everything became clear that I had to work with those who are the teachers of the younger generations.
How does your personal healing journey reflect in how you hold space for others?
I recognize that my own wellness isn't going to be this picturesque thing. My personal wellness will look different or similar to others, but it will be my own; there will be ups, downs and the in between. Honoring this for myself allows me to show up as I am and be transparent enough to feel exactly what my clients might be feeling and utilize compassion to hold space.
Why is what you do so important?
Providing holistic wellness coaching for Millennial Women of Color is important because we desire wellness too. So often we are giving of ourselves and forget to give back to ourselves. When clients work with me they are able to better show up for themselves in order to be their best for those who may need them; healing ourselves for future generations to be more well beings.
What is your inspiration to continue doing what you are doing? What is the fuel that keeps you going?
I'm inspired by the great things that my clients are able to achieve through our session together. Witnessing their growth and fulfillment of wellness goals gives me the nourishment I need to keep doing the work; to keep showing up for them, and the future generations that they will share their wellness with.
How does it make you feel when you are helping people heal?
I feel super fulfilled in my purpose when I work with my clients. I feel as if I have contributed to the greater good and growth of our community.
What is your definition of healing? (What does it look like, feel like, sound like, etc.)
To me, healing is digging deeper, sitting, and tuning into self. It's allowing the waves of life to move through you and take you to the healing that you desire. It's understanding your boundaries, what feels good and being gentle with yourself through the process. It often sounds like the oceans gentle waves as the birds chirp. It's experiencing life through all of your seasons.
Though, healing for you might be completely different and that is completely fine. Just honor what your healing is and show up for yourself how ever you can.
What are your visions &/or goals?
My vision is to be able to reach as many women of color I can and find ways to incorporate ways they can improve their wellness and incorporate these practices to include loved ones.
Tell us a fun fact about what it is that you do or something people may not know about you.
I'm a super introverted Aries, from a Jamaican background. When people learn I'm an Aries there like what, you don't seem like it. I'm introverted until I feel comfortable then my fiery nature comes out. I LOVE that I come from a culture so rich, any time I can I share it with others.
In one sentence, what is your message to the world?
If you aren't well, the people around you won't be.
Is there is anything else that you would like to share about yourself or what it is that you do?
I am super open to continuing to build wellness for our community, please share wellness with your friends and family. We need it!
