Welcome to my page. Radiant Wellness and this website has literally been a labor of love. I am so excited to share with you all that has transpired in the past year, all that I have learned about nutrition and holistic wellness; mind body and soul. Most importantly what I learned about myself.
Every new year I reflect back on the struggles and events of the year that came before. Very happy to see the year go. Vowing that the year ahead would be different. A year of promise. A year of success. A year filled with love and ease. As if by magic I expected miracles to happen.
In September of 2017 clarity hit me like a ton of bricks, disguised as some guy that I had been dating for a few months. Let’s just say his intentions were not honorable . I thought of the Albert Einstein quote “ Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.” Of course, I diagnosed myself as insane and as 2018 was approaching I asked myself, What was I going to do to differently to change my story? How was I going to make miracles in my own life? I was so tired of all of the pain and suffering that I kept experiencing, for one reason or another. I was so tired of living under a dark cloud.
I have always been the light for the people around me, why couldn’t I be the light for myself?
All of my past experiences had a purpose, had changed me and I was so grateful for them. The willingness to be honest with myself. Is what I believe has caused the greatest change. Acknowledging the Truth! I went deep into myself this year, a consistent meditation and yoga practice helped keep me grounded, focused and calm when I really just wanted to scream,
“I can’t do this”. I spent a lot of time alone, removing all negative energy from my life that was not in line with the work that I needed to do. I asked for help and support from people who were living their lives in ways that felt healthy and inspiring to me. I realized that things were out of alignment for me. I needed to rewire societal and family values that had been ingrained in me as a child growing up in the 70’s and 80’s. My instinct to flee has always been so strong, but now there was no where to run. As a single mom with daughters who depended on me to be brave and strong and appear to have it all together. I knew that I had to fight. I needed to stay in that place that was so uncomfortable , where I couldn’t breathe and try to feel ok just being in it, until I figured things out. There was so rescue, no White Knight. I would have to be my own hero.
So what has happened since 2018 began? I changed my life this year. I can feel the truth in what I am saying in the deepest parts of my heart. After all that I had gone through for years, I was finally ready to claim my strength. I enrolled at The Institute of Integrative Nutrition and completed a year long course in Integrative Nutrition and Wellness. I am now a Holistic Health Coach. I faced my fear and became a certified 200 hour RYT yoga teacher with the help of Leslie Glickman and other amazing teachers. Redirected my experiences and struggles with food and disordered eating to help heal others by creating Rebecca’s Radiant Wellness.
I honor the months and months of time I had invested in making my health, my heart, my work, my family, my community and my life as a whole, the best it could possibly be. This journey took me lifetimes to conquer because I didn’t know where to begin. I found my healing, the hard way.
But through my struggles I discovered an easier path… I found an approach to healing that adapts to each and every person who seeks it. This coaching I do, isn’t just coaching.
It’s a journey I take with my clients, together.
It’s my passion, my service, my struggles turned into strengths to serve.
Radiant Wellness Coaching is a total culmination of my life experience, extensive education, and the lessons found through my own healing journey—designed to do one thing and one thing only: to serve you in you’re healing .
