Today we’d like to introduce you to Nicole Ballantine.
Hi Nicole, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
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.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Absolutely not, but as I continue to learn and grow as a person I realize all the truly worthwhile things in life sometimes require adversity. It’s through the wisdoms of our lesson we actualize our potential and become better people. Along with 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!
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them 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 hear 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 to 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 I’m 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 others 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!
