Melinda is a writer, gardener, certified holistic nutritionist, transformation coach and advocate of personal freedom and self mastery. Her mission is to help women get free from the unconscious programs and socialization that keeps them from being their true self, from feeling whole, and ultimately achieving what they want in life.
Having embarked on her own profound journey of self discovery, self acceptance and redefinition, she believes the path to true happiness and fulfillment in life lies in the continued journey of self discovery and upgrading of the mental architecture that limits our true expression, discovering and connecting with who we really are and what makes us tick, and ultimately creating our own path through life, one that is led with the heart and soul.
Melinda teaches a unique process of life navigation and self discovery through her writing and private coaching. She lives in Calgary with her two cats and the love of her life.
So who am I really?
I have a really hard time defining who I am and what I do.
When someone asks me what I do there is this disconnection, I stall simply because I don’t know what to say. I nervously laugh and then I’ll rattle off a title of two, I might actually get out something that is remotely close to what it is I feel I am here to do but it is a far cry from the potential I feel inside.
See, I believe that we are limitless beings. We are infinite in possibility of what we can do, think, achieve or create. We are limited only by our minds and the concepts that we apply to the world around us in our effort to understand. A job or a title are concepts, labels that limit us to a generally recognized and accepted role or box in society. I don’t want to be limited, I don’t want to be put in a box because I don’t fit in there. I am so much more. I cannot be defined.
I cannot limit myself to a 30 second elevator speech or a title on a business card. For the record I think the most accurate (as of today) is Guide and Mentor but I am more than that too.
In my most recent efforts I wrote this:
As a personal development guide & mentor, I help people ascend to their next level.
As a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, I provide knowledge and information so people can level up their personal health.
As a Health Coach, I show people how to embrace themselves fully on a holistic level because we are so much more than our individual parts.
But I am also a Transformational Coaching Method Mastery Level Coach. (I’ve got some ninja skillz)
I am a nature loving, tree hugging, gardening, Wild Woman
I am a Writer, a Thinker, a Caretaker, a Freedom Seeker, a Daughter, a Lover, a Dreamer
I am a Leader. A lighthouse for those who have lost their way. A radio tower transmitting the message of personal freedom and self mastery.
I am a proud cat mom.
I am a personal boundary pusher (never thought I’d say that before)
I am all of these things and more. So much more.
I am me.
How can I be defined otherwise?
So what is it that i do?
I help people return to their true and natural selves so they can really take their place in the world.
Maybe I should try saying that next time someone asks.
PS. If you want to feel limitless too, we should hang out.
