Five months late or Divinely timed??

5 months ago I moved into my beautiful new Healing Studio on California Avenue near the West Seattle Junction. I intended to host an Open House in the first month, but Summer turned out to be a busy season for me and well, here we are!

Please join me on October 1st for a ribbon cutting ceremony by the West Seattle Chamber of Commerce at 10am.

Local tea lady, My Necessitea, will be providing some of her curated teas.

The incredible Red’s Kitchen and Catering will be blessing us with some sweet treats.

I’m inviting the members of my amazing West Seattle community to bless Mama Be Well’s space with your supportive presence.

If you’ve ever considered booking a healing session, but want to get a feel for what it will be like, this is your chance to check out the Mama Be Well Healing Studio and allow me to answer your questions in-person!

Kids are welcome too!

Will I see you on the 1st?

Sending peace & Reiki,

Why The Personal Peace Project is so dear to me…

I used to ingest my peace. And my “ingestible peace” of choice was alcohol. Maybe you’ll relate…

After getting home from my restaurant job, I would pop open a bottle of white wine to help me shake off the emotions of the day. And when that first wave of liquid warmth would wash over me, I would feel instantly soothed. I would feel like my true self. Happy, peaceful, relaxed.

I called it my “I don’t care juice.” And for a deep feeler and deep thinker like me, that “I don’t care juice” feeling was everything. It was my solution for a long time.

But like many quick fixes, alcohol had a rebound effect and a lot of negative side effects. Also, it was not a “solution” I could pass along to my kids, who are also deep feelers and deep thinkers like me.

So I started seeking other (healthy) ways to give my body and mind that feeling of peaceful relaxation that alcohol had offered me for so many years.

As I began walking my path towards healing and true personal peace, so many amazing healers, teachers and modalities appeared.

4 years ago I put down the wine bottle for good and said yes to this Spiritual Path. And one year ago I created
The Personal Peace Project for women on a similar journey.

The Personal Peace Project isn’t a program that’s meant to get you sober if that’s something you’re wrestling with (there are plenty of other wonderful programs for that). But this is a program that’s mean to help you discover your inner well-spring of peace. A peace so deep and powerful that life’s ups and downs cannot permanently shake it. And in that deep peace, you’ll find your power. And with that power, you’ll do so much good.

If this speaks to you, then I’d love to connect.
Send me an email and we’ll schedule a time to chat this week. There are two spots left in the Fall Session and I’d love to have you join us if it feels like a good fit.

Your friend in peace,
~Katie

“You’re a goddamn cheetah.”

Saturday morning I woke up with this thought in my head.

It’s the last line of my favorite passage from the book, Untamed by Glennon Doyle. Have you read it? It’s been a couple of years since I read it, but I love that this line greeted me when I woke up yesterday morning. Here’s the rest of the passage, in case you’re needing this kind of encouragement too:

“Something’s off about my life. I feel restless and frustrated. I have this hunch that everything was supposed to be more beautiful than this. I imagine fenceless, wide-open savannas. I want to run and hunt and kill. I want to sleep under an ink-black, silent sky filled with stars. It’s all so real I can taste it.” Then she’d look back at the cage, the only home she’s ever known. She’d look at the smiling zoo keepers, the bored spectators....she’d sigh and say, “I should be grateful. I have a good enough life here. It’s crazy to long for what doesn’t even exist.” I’d say: “Tabitha. You are not crazy. You are a goddamn cheetah.”

How beautiful and relatable is this? The guilt about wanting more. About wanting something you’re not sure even really exists. Talking yourself out of your “knowing” because it doesn’t fit the narrative you’ve been fed all of your life. I’m here to tell you that you CAN trust that knowing. You’re not crazy. You’re a goddamn cheetah. And you were made for more.

Sending Peace, Love & Wide Open Spaces to explore ALL that you are.

~Katie

Little helpers everywhere.

I don’t talk about it much, but I use crystals for grounding, wisdom and support every single day. As a Reiki practitioner, my appreciation for and relationship with crystals has definitely deepened and grown. One of my favorite new crystals that I’ve recently connected with is Green Aventurine. And based on my personal experience with this crystal, as well as what I’ve learned through a little bit of research, this one is worth highlighting as a powerful helper for our motherhood journey. I’m going to defer to the experts here, so if you’re interested in learning more about this crystal, click below to find the most thorough (and delightful) online article I found during my exploration.

Mama Be Well is moving!

Facilitating the Mama Be Well “Release + Receive” mini series turned out to be very energetically powerful for not only my clients, but also for me! I used the Release practice to Receive a Divine New Location for Mama Be Well to enter her next chapter.

On May 1st, 2022 we will be moving into the new Mama Be Well Healing Studio located at 4034A California Ave SW in the heart of West Seattle.

This space is light, bright & beautiful. Plus-it’s 3 times the size of Mama Be Well’s current space. That means that I can begin hosting in-person group healing classes, meditation series as well as Reiki Classes!

That’s right, this summer I’ll begin offering Reiki Level 1 & 2 Classes. I’m so excited to teach Reiki to other women who feel called towards receiving their Reiki certification/attunement. I can’t wait to get Reiki into the hands of heart-centered women who will spread the love and the light of this sacred practice.

Stay tuned for Mama Be Well’s summer schedule of classes and events! If you’re not already on our email list, you can subscribe below:

Origin Story

“Mama be well.” I vividly remember the first time I saw these words. It was a few years ago and they were pasted in the window of a local business. I happened to glance over as I was driving by and my gaze was guided to them by what felt like an unseen hand. It was one of those “whoosh” moments. (I’ll be sharing more about whoosh moments in future posts).

When I read these words, “Mama be well” they immediately felt like a soothing balm to my weary mama soul. I felt lovingly held by them. In that moment, I felt seen and I felt understood.

Motherhood can be so isolating. Which is such a paradox. Because as moms, we’re rarely alone.

There have been many stretches of my motherhood journey where I was not “well.”

But I can look back at that struggling mama now with love and tenderness. I always did the best I could, with the tools I had.

I’m so honored now to have these words as the calling card for my new business. I hope they prove to be a soothing balm for other moms who might see them as they are driving by my office or scrolling past my page.

If you’re a mama in the midst of a season of struggle, I want to let you know that it’s okay not to be okay right now. It’s ok not to be “well.” You are love-able and worthy exactly as you are.

In this chapter of your journey, you are right on time for where you’re meant to be and for where you’re headed next. More will be revealed, just stay. 💖✨✨✨

When true healing begins.

“We see how our experience can benefit others.”

Isn’t that when true healing begins?

When we know that our pain and our struggle were not in vain?

When we see that our difficult experiences have prepared us to be a more compassionate parent?

Some of the most difficult parts of my personality, the parts that have caused me the most pain and shame, well my kids have those parts too.

Thank goodness I carved out the time for my own healing and growth these past 13 years as I’ve navigated motherhood and life.

My motherhood journey has proven to be a powerful catalyst for me to seek out positive & healing change.

Can you relate? Is that where you are right now?

Is motherhood causing you to wake up to the parts of yourself that are ready to heal?

Through my desire to show up as a healthier person for my kids, I’ve been led on a path that has introduced me to incredible teachers, healers and modalities that have allowed me to shed the self-protective armor of attachment and addiction and show up as my higher self for them and everyone else around me.

I’m doubly excited about my Mama Be Well Healing Packages because I know that when moms carve out time and space for their own healing, they pass those tools along to their kids too.

The investments that I’ve made in my own healing these past 13 years are paying off immeasurably right now.

My kids are having a human experience just like I am. I don’t get to protect from life doing what life does. But I can share with them the skills I’ve developed that allow me to cope in a much healthier way these days.

If these words are resonating with you, I’d love to invite you to join my Mama Be Well Community.

I’m so excited to begin working with a community of moms who are ready to shed what’s no longer serving them and HEAL. 💫

First Post!

I have so much to share about how my new calling to become an Energetic Healer for Moms revealed itself to me.

If you had asked me 6 months ago, I would have been shocked to hear that I would be starting a brick & mortar business as a Reiki Healer & EFT practitioner. Never could I have guessed that this would the next step on my life’s path.

Back in 2009, when my son was one year old, I began my journey towards healing myself so that I could show up as a human that could be a bright and healthy light for him.

Little did I know, that in the following 12 years, as I sought out the support and healing that I needed, I would eventually find this calling, to be a source of energetic healing and support for other moms.

Over the next week, I’ll be sharing more of my healing journey with you.

Anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, self-loathing, lack of confidence, alcoholism and other addictive behaviors are all an ongoing part of my story.

I’m in a really good spot now, thanks to the many healers and teachers that I’ve worked with over the years, and valuable tools that I’ve learned along the way. I’m so honored to now be in a position to share my healing with you.

Peace & Love, Katie
