Today we’d like to introduce you to Mariah Sievers.
Mariah, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I was in excruciating pain during a therapeutic massage to treat a whiplash injury. As I lay on the table with tears streaming down my face I started having flashbacks of the car accident I was in. Emotions of panic and fear came flooding back. The massage practitioner referred me to a psychologist when I asked her why this was happening. Telling me this was out of the scope of her practice. And she was right.
This was in 1997, just one year before the federal government approved a $90 million dollar budget for the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. The field of holistic medicine was still a ways off from being welcomed into the traditional health care system.
Soaking in a hot bath of Epsom salts to relieve the chronic pain of my injury I had an inspired thought, “I will change this model even if it means working with a client for their mind on a Monday and their body on a Tuesday. If ‘out of the scope of practice’ means having different degrees I will figure out what I need to work with the whole person!”
That was the moment I decided to embrace my path as a healer. I knew intuitively that the body, mind and emotions operate as a whole system. My spark for holistic health was lit.
I reprioritize my college studies to include Health and Human Development. I became fascinated with psychoneuroimmunology and Buddhist practices applied to psychotherapy; such as mindfulness and meditation. I tracked down a Medical Massage school in Hawaii that taught injury treatment based on the educational standards coming out of Canada.
This launched me on a decade-long hands-on career where I gave over 10,000 professional massages. But not before I learned how to manage my energy in a two-year Clairvoyant Training Program where I learned how to develop my intuitive abilities.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Back then as a 22-year-old college student soaking in a bathtub I saw a vision for the future, but holistic healthcare practices hadn’t yet been co-opted into mainstream consciousness. In fact, the first Chopra Center had only opened two years prior, the book ‘The Secret’ hadn’t been written, there were no meditation apps, and no one was googling life hacks.
As a visionary, I sometimes feel like I’m waiting for the collective to wake up. I am so grateful for advancements in epigenetics, neuroplasticity, and long-term studies proving the efficacy of meditation for psychological and physiological benefits. My inner scientist now has ‘evidence’ for what I have personally experienced and witnessed with clients during their Transformational Coaching sessions.
It has also been a struggle being a closeted clairvoyant. I’ve been highly sensitive and empathic my whole life but didn’t feel there was enough permission to come out with this gift. I was afraid of being judged and ostracized. Now that words like “empath” and “intuitive” are more socially accepted I find it is easier to openly offer my gifts. More clients are curious about learning the tools I use daily to develop their intuitive abilities.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
My Transformational Coaching business is designed to assist high achieving socially conscious professionals to accelerate their life.
I hack the Human Operating System using the trifecta of mindset, emotional resiliency training, and intuitive development to delete old patterns, beliefs, habits that no longer serve in the present time.
My diverse background in counseling, medical massage therapy, meditation and energy healing gives me a multidimensional approach to life optimization. I teach powerful energy management tools and refined self-awareness allowing my clients to commit to an even better outcome from the boardroom to the bedroom.
What were you like growing up?
I was a social kid who liked to play with everyone. I loved to chat which landed me the nicknamed ‘Breezy’ by my elementary school bus driver. Human connection comes naturally to me.
I loved to dance and started ballet at the age of three. That lasted until I was 10 and ready to try other sports, but ultimately realized I didn’t like the competitive side.
So I turned to other avenues of expression like photography. I loved taking pictures of nature or family but got shy when the lens was turned on me. I still get a little shy.
Creative writing carried me through middle school. And I used to write poems while doing my chores. Stopping to write down a few words before doing more dishes.
