My guess is if you’re here then you’ll want to know a couple things “about” me?
So let’s get into it shall we!
First off let’s start with my name… I was not born with the name Meraki. I chose it because of its essence.
Definition: Meraki (pronounced: meh-ray-kee); Greek; adjective
1. To do something with soul, creativity, or love.
2. To put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing.
Isn’t that beautiful. It about sums up everything I have been mesmerized with lately.
My work started from a fascination with the idea of becoming fully self-expressed and what it means to live an authentic and aligned life. Some of the things I care deeply about are creativity, self-awareness, and self-love.
The word Meraki feels so fitting, don’t you think?
I can’t say I’ve always put these things at the top of my priorities list though. I went through an experience that shook up my entire life’s paradigm. For six months I grieved what I thought to be the loss of true love. In that state, I was forced to face myself. I realized that in order to take back control of my life that I had to stop playing the victim. I needed to own up to my responsibility. Every choice that I had made brought me to where I was.
The girl in the mirror wasn’t as happy as I had tricked myself into thinking. Everything that I hadn’t accepted or forgiven in my past came forward to be addressed. I saw how I had been numbing my pain through substance abuse, draining friendships, and an unhealthy relationship to food. I had pushed love away in the past because I was afraid to feel or let anyone truly see me. On top of that I was feeling lost and directionless in my career. I was allowing limiting beliefs to hold me hostage and keep me safe from moving forward. I realized at a deep level that I didn’t truly know or love myself. And that in order to heal, it was something I was going to have to learn to do.
One could say I was having an extreme quarter life breakdown, or experiencing the darkest nights of my soul.
Which was actually such a blessing. It lead me to where I am today— on a journey of self-love, self-awareness, and service.
I was drawn back to my passionate creative interests and inspired to create this platform. I wanted to create a space where I could share my life’s journey, spread empowerment, and inspire others to express themselves more fully too.
My intention is to help women reclaim their feminine power through self-love, self-expression and sacred sexuality.
I’m currently studying at the Tantric Institute of Integrated Sexuality to broaden my teachings in the realm of love, sex, and relationships.
Something I am beyond grateful for during my transition was the gift of Sacred Sisterhood and learning that through our vulnerability we can create bonds of love and acceptance which are so healing. My hope is that if my shares resonate with you that you know it is safe to reach out to me.
I also believe that through our sexuality, creativity and self-expression, we unlock the mysteries of our soul. We create our outer world to reflect our inner world. So my intention is to grow with you, side by side, and I’ll share with you the things that inspire and help me along the way.
I’ll also be tapping into my version of all things creative and spiritual so be prepared for lots of love, a touch of “woo-woo”, and a dash of hippy-dippy.
I believe that our pleasure is the key to our empowerment as women that is ultimately connected to our creativity and life force energy.
I’m grateful to have you along for my journey and I’m honoured to support you.
You’re perfect, whole, and complete just as you are and the world needs more people who are ready to shine their light.
