Hi, I'm Jennifer!
of "Empower From Within"
I believe that we have everything we need within us and we know what is good for us, we just have to connect to ourselves and truly listen.
Here’s a little about me…
In 2000 I began dealing with chronic neck pain. My mother was suffering from metastatic breast cancer at the young age of 48 years old and was in her last couple of years of her life. I always worked hard, played hard, pushed hard. I did everything hard, fast and furious. I always went above and beyond taking care of everyone and working all the time. I squeezed in workouts and of course I did those hard too!!! I basically felt like crap. I always had a lot of energy and I just became so frustrated that I didn’t feel good.
My mom passed away in late 2001, my dad was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer a few years later (he’s doing great now), then another friend was diagnosed with lymphoma, then another co-worker diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Then the real game changer for me…in 2011 my best friend, my soul sister, at the young age of 39 was diagnosed with late stage Ovarian Cancer. I had to slow down and be there for her. I knew it would be a tough journey. In helping her to stay calm and focused, it in turn helped me to stay calm and focused. Our mantra was “keep swimming”, in other words…go with the flow because that is all we can really do sometimes. Sometimes you would be going the wrong way but you were going with it. I helped her stay in the moment, take it second by second, minute by minute, day by day, whatever seemed reasonable that day. I switched jobs in 2013 and began working from home. I took it as an opportunity to re-balance and get my life in order. It was time to set boundaries and really take care of myself first and foremost. During this time I looked into different things that might be of help to my best friend, i.e. Reiki, infrared heat, etc….just different holistic things that could potentially help her in her journey. Through this I found YOGA.
Little did I know that it would change my life forever!
I learned to breathe and be still, to listen to my body, to love on my body. I changed how to talked to myself and how I treated myself. I became on a quest to feel better inside and out. I really began watching the products I was using and wanted to get rid of toxins in and around me. My neck pain became less and less as I did yoga consistently.
In Late 2017 I met Stephanie at a Yoga Goddess Retreat. She was all about the oils. I joined Young Living in February of 2018.
YOUNG LIVING makes it so easy to use clean products. They empower you to use plants to feel better and to support you. I have learned so much about plants and how they can help us.
I am beyond grateful to have all of these tools in my toolkit of LIFE. I feel better than I ever have.
Even though my best friend lost her battle, I make it my mission to honor her life by taking care of myself to the best of my ability and by empowering others to do the same!!!
Remember to always have Grace and Compassion towards yourself in your journey.
I’d love to help you in any way I can in your journey. You CAN and WILL do it!!!
You are MORE than worth it!
