Hey, hey pretty lady!
If we're just meeting, I'm Christine, and I'm a Business Mentor to Ambitious + Creative Entrepreneurs, Online Coaches & Soul-Led Visionaries. I'm also the Founder & Skincare Formulator for Bodycherish High Vibration Skincare.
This soulpreneur company launched in 2015 and became my full-time business early 2017. I used to work in corporate for 9 years as a Primary Therapist & Physiologist but I knew deep down I was meant to commit to my higher calling in life... trouble was I had no idea I even had a "higher calling" until a massive upheaval, rock bottom & awakening happened in my life back in 2013 (I will explain more below!)
Before launching my private practice, I worked with almost 2000 clients in the corporate insurance model of injury rehab and career planning... which definitely lacked a holistic approach to true transformation.
Seeing what worked and what outdated model clearly did not, inspired my first transformational program for women (EYL) which ran for 8 incredible seasons.
However, what is interesting, is that during those years of corporate life, it was ME who really needed a transformation BIG TIME! 👇
You see, the reason I am so passionate about positive transformation is because of my own major challenges.
In my late twenties it appeared like I had it all, for I was previously married, had good paying career, a nice house and plans for having a baby. Sure, my life appeared "successful" on the outside but it sure didn't FEEL successful on the inside. The truth is that it felt empty & lacklustre. I was in an unhealthy relationship & working in an unfulfilling job just for the weekends to escape reality by taking the edge off with drinking. Well, that weekend drinking eventually turned into a secret & shameful addiction.
My white picket fence wasn't all that is was cracked up to be. My inner light was dimmed by hangovers and I was living without any magic or sparkle due to the lower vibration I was operating within. I was living in “survival mode” (just getting by on auto-pilot) versus my current “miracle mindset mode” where I now expect & receive, like a magnet, wonderful opportunities, experiences and relationships into my life.
Pictured below I had a toxin & alcohol saturated body, inflamed red skin, adult acne, eczema patches all over, allergic skin reactions, mood irritability, chronic insomnia, poor eating habits, crummy self esteem and body image, irregular exercise habits & low energy, zero spiritual practice, battle up and down on the weigh scale, minimal joy pursuits & a disconnect with my true self & higher purpose. I was only 25 years old in the picture on the left and already feeling extremely depleted with the path I was on. I most definitely had no ideation that one day I'd become a spiritual entrepreneur in my higher calling career path!!
To make things more interesting, back in the summer of 2013, I fell down my staircase, fractured my skull, lost my consciousness, sustained a traumatic brain injury (while coincidentally working as a therapist on a brain injury rehabilitation unit, might I add!) and lost, still to this day, 100% my sense of smell.
This accident happened on my 29th birthday because I was drunk which was normal for me back then - I am now multiple years sober...yay! (full story here). This was the same summer of chaos in which I got a divorce, lost my house, had friendships fall away, and most importantly, start to question "why am I here & could I have a purpose?"...Talk about some BIG life changes (AKA Saturn Returns!!)
What happened next is quite interesting. As I started to get my life in order and practice radical self-love & care, my sensitivities to the energies around me also started to heighten. Specifically, my draw to the elemental kingdom (healing crystals & gems) increased at an exponential rate, along with my spiritual awakening for that matter!
It was as if my body had to make up for the loss of one primary sense (smell) by enhancing & strengthening another sense (my energetic sensitivity). Eventually this lead me to become an Energy Healer (since retired this practice in 2018).
At the same time of these positive changes, I received the inspired idea to create my own skincare line (made with my gemstone essences & Reiki) and within a matter of months, my skincare formulations completely healed my skin!
I then launched Bodycherish High Vibration Skincare to the world in 2015 and since then countless women from USA & Canada have experienced the same skin transformation! (testimonials here).
You could say the vision behind all that I do is to empower women to create their most vibrant health & well-being - body, mind & spirit. The mission is to inspire radical self love & care, through information, products & services - all designed to cherish your body, nourish your spirit & elevate your life!
I handcraft each item myself, with massive love & care, and also package and ship to the post office personally - which is why this skincare line is affordable despite having the absolute highest quality ingredients available.
Bodycherish is also vegan & free of toxins, parabans, sulfates, dyes & fragrances + plus made with the vibrational healing power of gemstone essences, which I meticulously prepare & add Reiki too, which makes it a truly holistic approach to beauty.
(my first market in November 2015)
It's funny how the Universe works isn't it? I mean, who decides to create a skincare line (which of course has to smell good) AFTER losing 100% their sense of smell?! I do and it's been successful thanks to a purpose far greater than just myself.
From first hand experience, I know it to be true that it is the contrasting life experiences that actually serve us by being the necessary catalyst to propel us into a new, brilliant and bright future.
I share this story as proof that when you listen to your inner guidance system (what your Soul is calling you to do) the Universe will conspire in your favour and open up doors that didn't exist before.
Trust me, you will be brought the success you deserve when you follow your heart and your divinely, inspired life path...NO MATTER WHAT may appear like a major barrier along the way!
Hope this inspires you & now is your chance to learn more about the transformational business coaching programs I offer here.
My experience elevating ALL AREAS of my life, has allowed me to:
1) Cherish myself and treat myself with love
2) Up-level my sense of purpose and contribution to the world
3) Quit my energy-draining corporate career
4) Build, brand and launch 3 heart-driven businesses so I can work for myself doing what I love
5) Change my money story and attract prosperity and abundance
6) Change my relationship patterns and attract my soulmate
7) Heal my dependance on unhealthy habits and replace them with deeply satisfying joy pursuits
8) Become physically, emotionally and spiritually vibrant, joyful and fulfilled
This has left me obsessed with empowering other women to do women do the same through the variety of unique programs I offer.
If this has sparked interest & curiosity in you, I invite to send me a text (780) 722-1080 or direct message on Instagram here sharing "hey Christine, I'm.... and I am interested in learning more about your offerings!" and we will go from there!
