I’m Tracey – Intuitive Therapist, Energy Reader, and Flower Essence and Reiki Practioner and I Hold Space for Souls on their journey of discovering their authentic soul-aligned life. I accompany souls on this adventure of a lifetime, offering my personal experience, formal and informal education, and innate wisdom and intuitive abilities to help guide them along.
My journey started at a very young age as that weird kid who was always a bit different. I didn’t feel as though I belonged to my family and did not fit in anywhere. Hard to put words around the feeling but I felt different although I didn’t know in what way or why. I recall reading energy as a means of knowing how a person was feeling or whether a place was safe. I felt the incongruence between what people said and the energy that they were giving off and often felt confused when others didn’t seem to notice. I was also very empathetic and often felt overwhelmed by people and places and preferred to be around nature and animals. I did not think that I had any particular abilities as it wasn’t something that I talked about to anyone. I only talked to someone inside of me although I didn’t know who this was. When I was much older and I looked back I was able to understand that I was using innate abilities that we all have as children. Most often though, once we get a bit older we usually end up ignoring these abilities as most are not encouraged to continue to use them.
I also recall the constant feeling that there was more to life than what appeared on the surface and I was always trying new things, experiencing what the world had to offer in search of answers. I, like so many of us, believed that the answers were out there in the world. It didn’t occur to me back then to look inside of myself for answers.
As I entered my adult years, parenthood became my priority and my inspiration for working on myself. I innately knew the importance of the ‘Mother’ role I had chosen and it was what drove me to look inside for answers and guidance. However, I didn’t appreciate the full potential within myself and my children (and of course each and every one of us) until I starting studying.
It was during my psychology studies that I came across Eckhart Tolle’s masterpiece ‘The Power of Now” and I really started to open up to the infinite potential of us human beings (and to the very limited beliefs of mainstream education, but that’s another story). This was a fork in the road really which gained momentum by 2012 when my life hit a huge crisis and I was forced to take stock of everything about myself and my life. I felt an overwhelming desire to go further ‘inside’ and to really look and try and understand what was going on. It was tough but at the same time an amazing period of personal growth and understanding. Synchronicities happened continuously and life started to feel very ‘real’. I began to feel comfortable in my skin, feeling like I didn’t have to prove myself to anyone anymore. It was so empowering!
It was as it turns out, the opportunity of a lifetime and I feel very blessed for this ‘dark night of the soul’ experience. I researched, I experimented and I expanded! Slowly I learned how to become my authentic self and to live a more soul-aligned life. Becoming more of who I really was, meant that I was more comfortable in owning my more psychic abilities (though still not ready to share with many). I also found myself jumping down lots of rabbit holes and along with the many different courses and workshops I took along the way, I found that my soul-aligned journey was creating an amazing and fulfilling life for me. I wanted to share what I had learned and was still learning, and always looked for opportunities to assist others in this area.
When I am not Holding Space for Souls you will find me with my family, painting or out in nature. There is a large rock overhanging a steep bank on our acreage and you will often find me there. It is one of our favourite places to hang out with our four-legged family members or to meditate.
Holding Space for Souls was originally birthed some three years ago as a result of me following those inner niggling flutterings that were telling me that I was here to do something else. Something more in alignment with my soul’s journey.
So, I put my formal studies together with my life experience and began to offer natural health services that included counseling, doula services, energy healing, and flower essence therapy. Since then the services have become more streamlined, please check out our services page for more information.
