Daily Inspiration: Meet Nicole Ballantine

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nicole Ballantine.

Hi Nicole , we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
My entire life I have been drawn to the human body’s ability to heal itself. My fascination lead me to become a 200 HR Registered Yoga Teacher, a Reiki Master and a Wellness/Holistic Health Practitioner and Educator. My journey towards a spiritual career path started during my own wellness journey spanning over 15 years of my life. I battled with depression, anxiety, overeating and religious identity issues. My personal battles have led me to open a practice that is meant to help reshape, transform and heal all those looking for guidance. My holistic approach to wellness combines my knowledge of yoga, reiki, nutrition, astrology, and human design to help others become their highest self.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Absolutely not, but as I continue to learn and grow as a person I realize all the truly worthwhile things in life sometime require adversity. Its through the wisdoms of our lesson we actualize our potential and become better people. Along with the the struggles of early adulthood and the challenges of adopting to a new city. I moved here very naive to my environment and had to learn some hard lessons in business and relationships. I don’t regret the journey, it taught me what never to do again!

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I love to say I’m a mindful entrepreneur. Through all my career changes, one thing has stayed true: I worked to build a personal brand and to share spiritual truths from my lived experience. This has taken form in many forms from corporate work to travel blogging to yoga teaching to energy healer and reader. What sets me apart is my ability to empathize and guide from my unique life experience but also my knowledge of multiple healing modalities through my own self- healing journey. Most recently, I have been sharing the knowledge of Human Design, an esoteric study based off astrology, the chakra system and the I-Ching (The Chinese Book of Changes). I have seen its ability to radically help my clients understand themselves and how their aura is best served in the world.

Risk taking is a topic that people have widely differing views on – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
I think risk taking is essential for self-mastery. Although I don’t view myself as a risk taker, I often her I inspire others to live a freer more authentic life. I naturally am drawn to a freelance, bohemian lifestyle but I applaud those who take risks for being dedicated, focused and taking a chance on themselves whatever that looks like. For me, I plan t take more risks every time I didn’t something I wasn’t comfortable to do- for example setting up a stand for my plant-based apothecary goods by the Hollywood Farmer’s Market during the pandemic. I was scared and Im naturally shy but it allowed me to build the confidence to market at the Melrose Trading Post which I did for months afterward. I was able to help other and launch the apothecary side of my business because I took a chance on myself. Now I plan to continue taking risks to create more abundance but most importantly a more confident and successful, me!
