ABOUT Rachel, Writer & Certified Intuitive Healer
In the year 2006, Rachel had a sublime experience that burst open her mind and flung open the gates of her heart. Lying stretched out on a couch in a hypnotherapist’s office, Rachel sank into a trance state for the first time. As her eye lids uncontrollably twitched, she watched in awe as a tiny butterfly of radiant light fluttered towards her, then dove into her fetus body. For a fleeting second, Rachel felt her soul’s innate joy and excitement. A feeling so intensely beautiful that it became a beacon for her, a guiding light.
For the majority of her life, Rachel’s reality was miles away from joy and peace. As a child, she was painfully shy and anxious. Her 20s were an out-of-control roller coaster ride of eating disorders, substance abuse, anxiety and self loathing. Deep into the midst of her 30s, a knotted ball of anxiety camped out in her gut, leaving her often breathless and panicked.
In the spring of 2009, Rachel’s stress peaked at a 8.0 on the Richter scale. During this intense time of change, upheaval, anxiety and fear, Rachel participated in her first meditation/energy healing workshop. During this powerful course, Rachel discovered (very much to her own surprise) that she possessed natural gifts as a clairvoyant and clairsentient. In other words, she could tune into people’s energy and clearly receive images and information regarding their unhealed emotions, fears and physical health.
Meditation has been Rachel’s steady companion since 2009. Her spiritual journey has offered her a new way of living and being. A life that is brimming with gratitude. Rather than running or hiding, Rachel shines light on and fully feels the emotions within her, allowing them to freely move up and out. Instead of relentlessly judging herself, Rachel holds herself with compassion and forgiveness.
In December 2015, Rachel became certified as an Intuitive Healer. Rachel helps people to reveal and release their buried emotions, devitalizing beliefs and fears so that they may feel calmer, healthier, happier, lighter and freer.
As we go through life, we accumulate and store emotions and beliefs within us. These devitalizing beliefs and stored emotions affect everything — our health, our happiness, our relationships, our abundance and how we react to life experiences. Intuitive healing opens the gates for people to experience their own innate joy, freedom and peace.
By tuning into an individual’s energy, Rachel has the ability to see and feel a person’s held beliefs and emotions that block them from living their best life. As a clear channel, she uses a variety of tools to release these stored feelings, including: energy healing, guided affirmations, chakra cleansing meditations, channeled messages from deceased loved ones, energetic cord cutting, prayer and more.
Rachel is also a co-authour of the international best selling book “Expect Miracles: 10 beautiful souls share stories of Hope, Inspiration & Transformation”. Her blog, Expand Love, offers a candid look at relationships, wellbeing, healing and love. Her articles shine light on our buried sadness, hidden shame, denied anger and limiting beliefs so that we may heal and be healthy, happy and free.
Together with her two beautiful daughters and husband, Rachel lives in Vancouver, Canada, where she regularly enjoys the city’s beaches, ocean and green parks.
“Rachel is an incredibly gifted healer. She sees things in a way that immediately make sense to me and her intuitive perspective always ends up shedding more light on the subject than I could have imagined. Each session feels intense and liberating. I can literally feel energy shifting.” (Genevieve Chenoweth, Toronto, Ontario)
“I cannot say enough about Rachel’s powerful intuitive healing sessions. I have had many amazing sessions with her over the years. Most recently she helped me through one of the most difficult times of my life. From the time of my sister’s diagnosis of terminal cancer to her passing two short months later, Rachel helped me prepare for my sister’s eventual passing. She helped to calm my fear and anxieties, and ultimately coached me in how to connect with my sister in the most transformative way. Rachel has a powerful gift and has truly found her calling. I can never thank her enough.”
(Bernadette Lynch, Victoria, B.C.)
“Rachel has guided me into some of my core issues and helped me to see and release stored traumas and emotions from a different perspective, one of non-judgement and healing. Through my work with Rachel, I have been able to move past emotional blocks that were holding me back in certain areas of my life and to shine light into places I didn’t feel comfortable looking at on my own. I am so grateful to work with such a wonderful intuitive healer and guide. I highly recommend her services.” (Kristi M., Vancouver, B.C.)
“After only working with Rachel once a week for three weeks, my world changed more dramatically than I had anticipated. I couldn’t believe how much less stress I felt and how much more connected to my happiness I became. Life’s little problems that were bothering me suddenly melted away. Even my daughter told me when I missed a guided meditation: “Mommy, you need to go see Rachel”. It’s crazy how life can get away from you and you forget how wonderful it really is. Rachel will bring you back to what really matters and guides you how to get there.” (Janiece Wiens, Vancouver, B.C.)
“After spending many months of research and trying different methods, I turned to Rachel to give me insight into my dog’s bizarre behaviour. Rachel had never been to my home but in her visions she precisely described my back yard and could see and feel my dog’s fixation with the fence. She explained to me the anxiety he was having and what I can do to help him heal. He now has less anxiety and is no longer intensely fixated with the fence. He is now relaxed in the back yard.” (Lisa L., Kelowna, B.C.)
