So, here you are.
You have discovered my tiny corner of the vast internet.
Close your eyes, take a deep breath and go within. Drop into your body, ask yourself: “Why am I here?”
Whatever questions, longings, whispers have called you here, I am grateful you’ve arrived. May you find what you seek.
Welcome, I’m Jo
I’m a certified Beautiful You Life and Spirituality Coach and Craniosacral Therapist on a mission to Simplify Spirituality.
I work with awakening women, guiding them to deeply know themselves, connect with their soul’s path and live their truth.
Energetically I create a sacred space and intuitively support you to connect to your inner voice and draw upon your inner knowing.
I am also a Craniosacral Therapist. This is a gentle yet powerful therapy that works in partnership with your whole system: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Read more about Craniosacral Therapy here.
I’ve often felt like an outsider, not quite fitting in, like I was in the wrong tribe. I am unwilling to agree with convention if it doesn’t feel right, but often struggle to express why. Intuitive ‘knowing’ isn’t easy to explain. Is this something you experience too?
My Mum was a psychologist, and I grew up with access to her ever-expanding library of self-help books. These opened my mind to ideas that weren’t taught at school.
I devoured many of these books, but it was a novel called The Celestine Prophecy that drew me in. It’s a book I still have on my shelf today! It speaks of being guided by synchronicities, seeing energy fields and raising our vibrations. For me this book was not fiction – I had a deep inner knowing there was truth in it.
I wanted to know more, I wanted it to be real, but I didn’t find the right teacher. I knew what I didn’t want to do – including all the mainstream careers I was aware of – but I didn’t know what I did want to do.
Unable to decide for myself, I followed my cousin into a Commerce degree. I knew this wasn’t my road but without an alternative I qualified as a Chartered Accountant. At work, I met my future husband, a Brit who led me to London-town.
A new pathway opens
As I walked London’s streets, many would radiate and light up, something described in The Celestine Prophecy. I knew I was in the right place, but my corporate work was so uninspiring. Can you relate to this feeling?
Synchronicity finally led me to a beautiful healing modality called Craniosacral Therapy and I signed up to complete my training with the College of Craniosacral Therapy in London.
The training was therapeutic and I began to reconnect to something deep within. Tuning in to subtle energies in clients as well as connecting to deep Universal tides opened a mysterious, unseen world.
This time it was real, I could feel the energy with my own hands. I knew the truth that we are all energy and all connected. I had found a new path and felt deeply aligned.
And then I lost it…
My first child was born just after I graduated and years flew by. I was lost again, this time in motherhood. Our second arrived and London lost its shine. I dragged my highly ambitious husband back to ‘small’ Australia.
It was in my hometown of Melbourne, with everything I thought I wanted, that I realised just how lost I was. I was a stay-at-home mum but felt exhausted and overwhelmed. How could I find enough energy for my kids, my husband, myself and my clients?
Frustration and resentment built to stress and anxiety, and too often I became the ‘screaming banshee’ mama. This was not the positive parenting mum I wanted to be!
Every day felt the same, going through the motions, simply existing – and not happily. I asked myself: is this it? Is this my life? The years loomed ahead and all looked the same… I wanted more, but how?
The Universe provided and the teachers came
I have many guiding lights that appeared in the next stage of my journey, and I am very grateful for these.
During this stage I certified as a Life Coach with the Beautiful You Coaching Academy (BYCA). This was an incredible experience and helped me find the confidence to put myself out there, as well as guiding me to build a business I am passionate about that allows me to live life on my own terms.
In parallel I completed Belinda Davidson’s The School of the Modern Mystic, which deepened my knowledge of chakras and mindfulness, and facilitated so much personal healing and growth. It allowed me to get my own energy sorted, so that I have ‘enough’ for my clients.
My true awakening began as I connected to:
- Clearing clutter, busyness and noise. To hear the voice within, I needed outer calm.
- Meditation and mindfulness. To trust the voice within, I needed inner peace.
Major global energetic shifts are happening.
More light is filtering in and we are seeing that brighter light illuminates darker shadows.
We can all be filled with light; and by radiating and illuminating we become facilitators of change in the world.
It starts with individuals, each of us a tiny ripple in a giant ocean – but ripples spread…
Finding and connecting to our own unique Spirituality doesn’t need to feel like ‘something else I have to do’; instead it shows us a new way to be, a new way to live.
We CAN create deep, meaningful change – and keep it simple.
