I recently did a 10 minute interview on Elevated Radio FM! They are an internet radio station that is all about everything Health and Wellness from A to Z. If you have a few minutes, check them out!
Please have a listen to who I am, how I got here and why I do what I do.
Nice to meet you! I’m Erin. I created Living Well with Erin Spencer to help busy and often overwhelmed Moms get a new perspective on things. I am passionate about whole woman wellness. This means looking at the WHOLE YOU, not just at what’s causing the overwhelm. You see, everything is connected. Through my whole person approach to personal development, you can achieve positive results in all areas of your Life, by improving just one area. In particular, I believe we can prevent burnout and overwhelm, and increase our resiliency to everyday stress through consistent practice of the lost art of self care.
My background story: I grew up in a small Canadian town. Home life was good, but there were certainly some dysfunctional dynamics going on.. but that’s a whole other story! I grew up camping, fishing, hunting and to this day still enjoy these activities. I was married in 1993 in my Hometown of Timmins, Ontario. I obtained my Honours Bachelor of Science in Nursing, with a minor in Psychology at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario in 1995. I worked hard and graduated with First Class Standings. Two years later I had my first child, my son Spencer. Sadly about a year after that, I had a miscarriage. Nearly two years later, in 2000 I had my daughter Amanda. To me, my family was complete. I figured I had it all!
Then about 15 years later, around 2007-2008, I joined the ranks of being divorced.
My whole world as I knew it came crashing down. I struggled to make sense of it all. I realized very quickly learned I had lost my identity along the way. I was a wife, Mom and Nurse. I was so attached to being a wife that I was truly lost without that role.
I have since embarked on a journey of ‘inner work’. Although still a work in progress, I have come a long way in rediscovering who I am and what I stand for. I have clarified my values, my ethics and re-empowered myself through personal growth with books, online challenges and most recently engaged in working with a marketing and Life Coach.
In March 2013, I became a Team Beachbody Coach. I love the products, challenge groups and the Shakeology. I was really fired up about and learned TONS about building my own business. I had fallen in love with being my own boss! What I REALLY enjoyed was getting to know the clients and working with them to meet their weight loss and fitness goals. However, as time passed, I realized to reach financial freedom would mean building a team of Coaches and spending a lot of my time Coaching them. So in early 2015, I hung up my Team Beachbody Coaching hat. Don’t get me wrong, I have seen some real ROCKSTAR Coaches who have built million dollar businesses, so it IS possible! I still believe in and use their products and I would recommend them to anyone who will listen! Bottom line is that for me, I wanted to spend my time and energy working with clients on their big goals and dreams, and not limit myself (or my clients) to just weight loss.
This led me to the wide world of Wellness Coaching. I literally stumbled across the Wellness Inventory in a Google Search. The philosophies and values they taught echoed my own, and I knew I am now on the right path. As of Summer 2015, I am officially a Certifies Wellness Inventory Coach. I am developing programs and workshops as quickly as I can!
Most recently, I have been diving into the world of Energy medicine, meditation, Reiki and I've fine tuned my Coaching to Resiliency Coaching. I have obtained certifications in Reiki Level 2 (my Master's is coming up in early 2019), Crystal Reiki, working with the Fairy and Angel Realms, Meditation Teacher, and soon I will be able to give Munay Ki Rites to others. I am currently learning a little more about crystals, essential oils and herbs as well. This is such a fantastic time of amazing growth for me and I can't wait to share what I know with the World!
I work intuitively, and although I can't ever promise messages, I am heightening my skills and opening up more to the Spirit realm. So as you can see, I am evolving into a truly Holistic Health Coach, and I look forward to serving you the best I can.
PS: I am currently working on a Crystal Course for Beginners, a Chakra course, Meditation classes for 1:1 and groups. I will be updated and fine-tuning my Wellness Coaching packages as well.
