The journey so far...

I am continually reminded that life is a journey.

Creating this website, and stepping out into the world has been exactly that for me... an ever evolving path of twists and turns as well as ups and downs. This whole process has been so much more in depth than I ever dreamed possible. I feel like I have been required to check out of my life and completely immerse myself in this online world to create this space. 

Launching my website has been filled with moments of creative inspiration, as well as those of self doubt and resistance. An introverted person by nature, there have been many times when I have had to dig deep and step over the negative feelings that would quite happily keep me bound forever in a place of security and quiet. Yet to listen to that voice of fear and uncertainty, would keep me stagnant and not offer any space for personal growth.

Writing about who I am was such a huge and personal process for me that brought up so many mixed emotions. The realisation came to me at one point that this space isn't really about me, or any conflicting emotions that I may have. It is about something bigger. The Healing Essence is about growth and sisterhood and has been created as a place to share.

And as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give others the permission to do the same - Marianne Williamson

I have got so much respect for the lovely people who have helped me to bring my website to life and I once again I have been reminded, that we need not ever feel that we have to do things on our own. My dear family have been so supportive and patient over the past few months and given me all the time and space I have asked for. My beautiful sister has cheered me on from the sidelines and proof-read every single word I have written. My web designer, the ever so amazing Joanna and her team at The Healthy VA, my wonderful photographer Michael at Michael Bolenski Photography and my beautiful designer Claire at Ville Creative. This group of creative geniuses have been an absolute dream to work with.

So for now, I can't tell you how lovely it is to finally have this website all done...and to be in a place now where the real work can begin! My goal is to send out monthly newsletters that I would love you to sign up for and have land in your inbox. You can also find me on Facebook and Instagram where I love to post little pieces of wisdom and motivation.

My hope for this space is to be one of inspiration for you...a little sanctuary that hopefully touches your soul and drives you to reach even further. I aim to share little pieces of me, tips on healthy living and nutrition, natural remedies and self care..... all of those earthy and wholesome ingredients that are so crucial for a beautiful and balanced life.

Thankyou so much for being here,

Jo xx
