Heal Your Space, Heal Yourself

I know first hand how impactful your physical space can be on your ability to heal and so when Ala from MindfulSpacesbyAla connected on Instagram I wanted to learn more! She teaches women how to simplify and how to do far more than declutter their spaces although that is a priority. I loved our conversation on mindful spending, emotional healing and simplifying and I think you will take something away that you are meant to hear today.

Getting friendly with Emotions + Play

Amanda Evans is passionate about supporting children and families to be their happiest and healthiest selves! Her own healing journey taught her so much about the extraordinary healing powers of play, love, and connection. She is dedicated to helping people take their health and happiness into their own hands, believing in their own magic and the power to heal from within. Her work as a Kindergarten teacher (and recovering perfectionist and people-pleaser) taught her so much about how we need to be able to fill our own cups and feel safe, loved, accepted and connected in order to help children to do the same. She uses her teaching background, her experience supporting children with exceptionalities along with her own personal experience healing from a brain injury to help support others with invisible “disabilities” (or better yet...SUPERPOWERS!). Her first book - Eat, Play, Love - is out now and can be purchased here Everything about Amanda's services and how to follow her is here - https://www.mindbodysoulmiracles.com/
