Episode 14: How turning down the noise of the outside world can allow guidance to come from within.



I’ve found that it is so soothing to hear myself breathe because breath is something that we often take for granted.

Elizabeth and Nikia discuss how to show up to your purpose as it’s presented to you throughout your life. As a Reiki master, Nikia serves as a conduit of universal energy to help people facilitate their own healing.  Feeling how much power is inside of you if you choose to tap into it and recognize what you are capable of, can be life changing.  We hold onto the trauma in our bodies and that can manifest in our lives and business.  If we ignore or suppress it, it will continue to resurface until we have worked through it. Nikia discusses how, on a daily basis, we can learn how to work through that pain. Integrating healing into your daily life could look like meditation, journaling or simply breathing. Easing into your day and creating these sacred moments helps to turn the noise of the world down, and you up.  Listen to enjoy a sample guided meditation at the end of this episode. 

Nikia Phoenix is a content creator, storyteller and occasional commercial actress with a passion for social change and conscious living. She is also the founder of Black Girl Beautiful, a loving and safe space that celebrates Black women. After diving deeper into wellness and self care, Nikia became a Reiki master and meditation practitioner. When she’s not socially distancing at home, she enjoys traveling to serene locations, documenting her journeys, and occasionally road tripping with her cat.
