I wanted to write this post because I know we have so many new people passing by here and you may be wondering who I am and if this might be your tribe?
I”m Erin and I’m a mom of two little boys living in Malibu, California. Living healthy and well while helping others do the same is my mission. Here are a few random facts about me that I hope brings us closer to being friends.
Several years ago I started blogging for Huffington Post and sharing my spiritual growth stories. I was that girl that used to cringe when I heard the word spiritual, but when I realized if we don’t have a deeper connection to who we are and this planet we sit on that we really cannot live a fulfilling life. I believe spiritual can mean many different things to different people and has nothing to do with religion, but is a connection to something greater than ourselves. My search for spiritual wholeness led me to a yoga practice, an Ashram in India, many weekends of intense breathwork training, a new circle of like minded friends and an unshakable faith that there is a spirit guiding me and it’s my job to stay in touch with it.
I don’t promote any one diet or way of eating and I think there’s no one way for everyone. I DO promote experimenting with what works for your body and using supplements to fill any gaps.
I can get lost in the “flowers” section of Pinterest for decades if my small child would not interrupt me.
Researching “soil depletion” is something I totally nerd out on.
I believe having gratitude for what we have now is not only the quickest way to happiness, but the fastest way to accumulate more of the good stuff that we truly desire!
I believe women have a unique intuitive ability and many of us were taught to numb it out at a young age. My hope is that I can be a speck in the larger picture of helping women get back in touch with that “gut feeling” or intuition because we have it for a reason.
I am a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians in Belcourt, North Dakota. My dream is to visit the reservation with my children so they may know my family that still lives there and experience their Native American heritage.
I was a fashion model for almost twenty years and this took a big toll on my body image. Having children and learning how to truly nourish my body for it’s best health and wellbeing has been an empowering tool and I”ve never felt better about my body.
I really enjoy quiet time alone which is why I get up around 5, sometimes before.
I value my friendships from grade school so deeply because even though I don’t talk to those friends enough, I can give them a call after a year has gone by and pick right back up on that conversation we started ten years ago.
I used to feel a pressure to be “doing” all the time. One of the greatest lessons I’ve learned in my studies in holistic health has been how be a human being instead of a human “doing.” Of course, I”m always a work in progress.
Thanks for reading and I would love to learn more about you in the comments section below! What is a random fact about you and how you evolved to be the person you are today?
