When you change your energy, you can you change your life, and impact the world around you.
The best part is that changing your energy doesn't mean you change who you are. On the contrary, working with your body's natural energy allows you to tune in more deeply to your authentic, intuitive self. Which enables you to be a better leader, coach, and changemaker.
"I cannot thank you enough for walking this journey with me. Your support and strength is powerful and allows me to realize that I am not alone in my quest for a better more balanced connection with myself and others."
~ Christy R.
WE'VE BEEN DOING LEADERSHIP ALL WRONG.
BUT IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT.
Leading - whether you're a coach, a corporate leader, or a woman leading change in some other way - is more than the tired old top-down, productivity-based, corporate paradigm of being "in charge".
Modern leadership is holistic - it encompasses both DOING and BEING. It aligns with the energies of EMPATHY, BALANCE, and INTUITION.
For those of us who naturally lead with these qualities, the old way of leading forces us to try to contort ourselves into situations that simply don't fit. Then we feel unbalanced, exhausted, and unable to show up as and express our whole selves. And we can't lead authentically under these conditions.
As women, have the power and capacity innately within us to birth this new paradigm of leading where the energies are more balanced and supportive for everyone.
Where leading is not simply being in charge but being in tune with and showing up as your whole self.
And what it's going to take to positively impact the future of how we lead our teams, businesses, families, and most especially ourselves, is aligned action from each of us.
Personal work for the greater good where we learn to shift our energy and show up differently, simply by tuning in more deeply to our authentic, intuitive selves.
I am a Bridge, a Light
A Connector of worlds
Translating Love into suffering hearts
For the journey home,
Through the darkness, through the pain
Through the nights that seem to never end,
Let the healing begin
HI, I'M ASHLEY!
I'm a recovering people-pleaser and rule-follower, multi-passionate creative, bridge-builder, and liminal being, and I'm dedicated to teaching women leaders, coaches, and changemakers who are actively working to create inclusive, healthy, and human-centered ways of leading and being in the world how to have more impact in their work without working harder.
Through poetry, books, my Reiki for Leaders program, and 1:1 mentorship, I can help you intentionally create awareness around the imbalances within you that are hindering your life and leadership, clear perceived blocks, and create a plan to incorporate energy work into all aspects of your life.
"Ashley found ways to articulate feelings I’ve struggled to describe in The Rising. I felt so much emotion as I read and related to many of the poems and the feelings of frustration and empowerment they invoked within me. This is a beautiful, timely book of encouragement for any and all who feel helpless to the pain we feel empathetically from the world around us."
"Beautifully written and inspirational. As a yoga instructor this book is always by my side during a yoga practice. My students always ask me what I am reading. As for my everyday life, this book is like an angel bible that I have read over and over again. Invest in this treasure and enjoy it’s inspiration for years to come . You’ll want to gift a copy to friends as well."
"Ashley has done it again! Such inspiring work, I'm going to use the poems has daily reflections. The more I read and think about the poems, the deeper I feel them; she has touched my soul!"
"I absolutely loved this book! I loved all the different personal stories included and how each person was able to describe in their own way how being an empath has changed them or made a difference in their lives. Many people don’t understand or know about empaths and this book helps give a clear explanation from many angles!"
