IT'S TIME TO MOVE BEYOND THE WALLS BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR SOUL-DESIRES.
"You have to find the shadow to see the light, and if you don't know the shadow is there you're just living in it." - Sarah
You were born to attain your soul-desires. What are soul-desires, you ask? Well, they're completely unique to you, but generally your soul-desires are the desires that come from deep within you, and they feel more like a calling or deep longing than a superficial "want."
to be loved and deeply seen in romantic partnership and friendship
to feel that you are living your purpose and doing fulfilling work
to financially prosper so that you can thrive rather than survive
to live in a state of ease and trust rather than constant fear/anxiety
Having soul-desires is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, your soul-desires are a map to transforming into your highest self.
Attaining your soul-desires is not a matter of working harder, applying more effort or willpower. The biggest obstacle between you and your soul-desires is your unprocessed emotional wounding and subconscious beliefs (the emotional and perceptual map that lives in your limbic brain).
Some signs you may have unhealed emotional wounding that is blocking your soul-desires and preventing you from stepping into your authentic self:
No matter how much weight you have lost in the past you never felt happy with your body
No matter how much effort you put in, you can’t seem to make more money
You're frustrated your progress with your career, relationship, healing, etc. isn’t happening quickly enough
No matter how many jobs you apply to, nothing is coming of it
You feel like you’re constantly getting rejected/ghosted by potential partners
You're dating but never feel a true reciprocal connection or intimacy
You feel like your partner never shows up for you, sees you or appreciates you
You struggle with saying no, setting boundaries and constantly over-giving
You constantly worry about money/feel like you can't afford things/are afraid to spend no matter the number in your bank account
It perpetually feels like the opportunities/experiences/things/lifestyle you want is out of reach due to a lack of money/career progress/relationship
You resent others who have the job/have money/freedom/body and think, “must be nice!!!”
You feel abandoned/overlooked by the Universe or people in your life
It's hard for you to truly rest or relax even on vacation/off-days
It feels like there’s invisible walls between you and what you want
These are indications of unhealed wounding and subconscious programming that must be lovingly and gently released in order to receive your desires. This programming renders the manifestation of your gifts and dreams impossible.
The invisible walls that you feel standing between you and your desires are the result of being stuck living out the subconscious programming of your limbic brain, which forms in childhood.
Traumatic events and childhood wounding including what we’re shamed for, praised for and punished for, all contribute to the map in our subconscious brain, what we learn to understand is true or untrue about ourselves and the world on a subconscious level.
This wiring, or mapping of our limbic brain, is related to the cyclical, limiting emotional and psychological patterns that determine our experience, behavior and prevent us from ever experiencing true freedom and moving beyond the seemingly immovable blocks between us and our desires.
"Perfectionism forced me into an "on/off" mentality. I was either one hundred percent doing everything I could possibly think of to lose weight, or I was absolutely off, doing everything I had determined as "wrong." Both pulled me away from myself and left me feeling trapped. I was unable to do the things that I really wanted to be doing because I constantly felt like I was unable or unworthy of doing them until I had worked hard enough and achieved the perfect body. It was a soul crushing, isolating, and damaging way of life.
I was so afraid of letting go of this old framework because, even though it had proven to be unhealthy and unhelpful time and time again, I knew no other way of being. It was somehow providing me a sense of comfort, letting me know I was ok. But diving into life without these toxic ideas around food and body and letting go of old habits that were no longer serving me, all while constantly telling myself I was ok, allowed me to see I was capable of having the life I'd dreamed of all along. In time I've settled back into my body, listening to it again and learning to let it be so that I can grow and thrive in a life that finally feels like a reflection of me.
Eden has an innate ability to make you feel seen, understood, and comforted, all while challenging you to find that power within yourself. She urged me to walk into the darkness and was the shining light throughout it all that kept me grounded and determined to work through what was keeping me trapped. She's been my rock and the ultimate cheerleader for my higher self, I truly don't know where I'd be without her."
Your past conditioning is so familiar, powerful and survival-based that there is no way to effort or work your way out of it.
You must uncover and re-parent your subconscious beliefs and update the subconscious map that is driving your behavior and coloring your perception by learning to non-judgmentally observe, feel fully and discover compassion for your emotional wounds, meeting your own unmet emotional needs and re-integrating the parts of you that you've inadvertently abandoned.
In order to receive the experience of love, connection and freedom within your interpersonal relationships, finances and career, you must first know how to access these feelings within your own nervous systems. You cannot receive from anyone, not even the Universe, that which you have not already allowed yourself within your own being.
There is a path to unlocking your soul-desires.
DIVE INTO THE EMPOWERING PROCESS OF RECOVERING YOUR WHOLENESS.
You're ready to experience deep healing around that which you've been avoiding (even if you're nervous). You're ready to experience the freedom of living in alignment with your authentic essence.
WHAT DOES WORKING TOGETHER LOOK LIKE?
My specialty is in guiding you to the emotional core of your subconscious blocks and providing you with a framework for gently and harmoniously processing your old emotional wounds so that you can becoming your OWN healer and guide.
Together our work will consist of:
providing you with tools for identifying and moving back the invisible walls in your life
uncovering your emotional wounds and subconscious programming
uncovering your true soul-desires
tools, exercises & prompts to help you release this programming and resolve unmet emotional needs
guidance catered directly to your personal experience
personalized exercises and integrations ("homework") designed to bring you into relief and freedom as directly as possible
setting you up to be able to continue your progress beyond our time together
This is for you if you want to step out of your limiting patterns, re-discover, empower and trust your authentic self, deconstruct and rewire the subconscious programming currently keeping you stuck and heal and integrate your emotional wounds so that you can start living your vision.
The goal: to identify and break through the walls between you and your authentic self, between you and the life of abundance, ease and flow that you’ve always been meant to live.
My framework blends meditation and visualization techniques, inner child work, reintegration of subconscious blocks, gentle emotional processing techniques and spiritual and energetic principals. It is a collaborative process where I serve as a friend and guide on your unique journey, equipping you with the tools to help you heal yourself.
While this work is informed by brain science and is trauma-aware, this work alone may not be sufficient if you are dealing with trauma or mental illness. If anything surfaces during our time together that is beyond the scope of this work, I will suggest you seek additional support. This work has supported individuals who've experienced trauma, who also see a therapist, beautifully.
I'm here to help you facilitate your transformation process. I will hold an energetic container of non-judgement, unconditional presence, compassion and confidentiality. I will provide a road map and guidance but I will not do the work for you. You, and only you, are capable of doing the work required to move beyond your limitations. I will point you in the right direction, give you a map and help light the way, but it's your job to make the journey.
My role is to guide you through the process of illuminating parts of yourself you may not yet be able to see, to help you uncover wounding and blocks that are currently keeping you trapped in a cycle of struggling and your goals out of reach, and offer you the tools to help you heal and free yourself from these limitations.
My purpose is to help you vastly accelerate your healing journey by providing a road map and tools. Often we waste days, weeks, months and years spinning our wheels in the same spirals because of our inability to clearly see our own shadows, a painful cycle that can be broken by simply seeking guidance, saving you years or lifetimes of stuckness.
The people who I work with have powerful breakthroughs, realizations and emotional releases, discover the true meaning of self-love, experience relief from their struggles and gain deeper insight into layers they didn't even know were there.
The sooner you start unpacking your emotional baggage, the sooner you start exponentially growing your capacity to receive freedom, ease and abundance. When you become willing to heal, you send a powerful message to the Universe that you're ready to start awakening the vast potential within you.
Requirements for working together:
you have a level of personal accountability
you're eager to heal and dive into what’s blocking you beneath the surface
you have the time, space and motivation to execute HW on your own (journalling exercises, meditations, and taking time to self-reflect)
you are ready to be 100% honest with yourself
you are ready to be seen and receive loving support
Just as you’re in pursuit of your authentic self and desires, they’re also pursuing you. When you start taking steps to align with your true nature, the universe rejoices.
"I LEARNED TO PROCESS MY EMOTIONS! I LEARNED TO COME FROM A PLACE OF COMPASSION FOR MYSELF RATHER THAN SHAME - WHICH HAS ALSO EXTENDED THROUGH MY RELATIONSHIPS. I LEARNED TO ESTABLISH IF I AM ACTUALLY HUNGRY OR JUST LOOKING TO FILL THE VOID WITH AN OUTSIDE VICE. THIS HAS BEEN A GAME CHANGER FOR ME."

"THIS HAS BEEN LIFE CHANGING. I HAD NO IDEA THAT I NEEDED SO MUCH ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND EMOTIONAL NURTURING. I NEEDED TO FEEL HEARD, BELIEVED, AND VALUED BY A WITNESS. I CAN NOW BE THAT WITNESS TO MYSELF AS I GROW THE CONNECTION WITHIN MYSELF."
"I use food and cigarettes to avoid or help me through tough emotions and awareness of that has already created radical change in my daily life. You are the most loving and non judgmental person. Not only do I never feel judged, but you go beyond that to authentically empower me. I don’t feel like it’s just lip service."
I combined elements of meditation, emotion processing, inner child work, and reprogramming subconscious beliefs that aligns with basic brain science to create a system for liberating yourself from the immovable walls between you and what you want.
Here's what working together looks like:
VOICE RECORDING SESSIONS
A voice recording session takes the place of a zoom or Skype coaching session.
You will tell me about what you're going through (answering prompts that I will provide) and share progress updates via recording a voice memo of yourself (using an app like the Voice Memo app on iPhone). 1 session = 1 voice memo from you no longer than 30 mins + 1 response from me no longer than 30 mins. Length will vary based on your individual needs at that time but will not exceed 30 mins.
In this voice memo you will include, what challenges you're facing as well as details of your experience that I will prompt you with. I will listen to your voice recording and get back to you within 48 hours (M-F) with a recorded response that includes next steps for moving through your challenges, HW assignments to complete and tools for you to use.
These recordings are an efficient, direct and concentrated means of receiving and giving guidance and feedback.
THE FRAMEWORK, TOOLS & PERSONALIZED INSTRUCTION
HW may include journal prompts, feedback, recorded audio visualizations, explanations of my personal framework, meditations, and/or other integrative exercises for you to do outside of our session. HW is unique to every individual and based on your unique situation.
4 voice recording sessions (you send 4, I send 4) to be used at your own pace (expire after 8 weeks)
You will have these recordings, as well as the prompts, exercises and meditation/visualization practices that I will provide, for life to re-listen to them WHENEVER you need support or to be brought back to yourself.
Have questions? Not sure if this is the right fit or want to discuss if I might be able to support you? When you click the button above, you’ll be sent to a form where you can schedule a complimentary 30 minute zoom call with me.
We’ll use this time to get to know one another and determine if working together feels like a great fit!
I'm so down for this, but I can't afford support right now.
Working 1:1 with a mentor is an investment that not everyone is ready for. If you aren't able to afford personalized, one-on-one support right now, I invite you to explore my Instagram channel and Podcast where I share plentiful resources for navigating your path on your own.
I invite you to take a look at whether your reservations about investing in yourself are truly coming from a lack of money, or rather a lack mentality. Your reservations might be coming from a lack mentality/subconscious block if:
You feel shame/guilt/selfish/irresponsible when considering spending money on yourself or things you don't technically need
You talk yourself out of spending money, even when it's something you've been wanting for months/years
No matter how much money is in your account you never feel like it's enough
You feel like you can't afford things even when you technically do have the money
You have trouble accepting gifts without feeling like you owe the other person
It perpetually feels like the opportunities you want are out of reach due to money
No matter how hard you work you can't seem to make more money
These are signs that you have some lack mentality within your programming that is preventing you from experiencing more abundance and ease. You cannot move beyond your current limitations by adhering to the very same limiting beliefs and lack mentality that are producing these limitations.
When you show up honest and ready, this work is dramatically life altering. You will know if you are meant to be doing this work, and you will feel excited about investing in your highest transformation when it's time.
Will this really help me? I've tried everything and doubt I'll ever be able to fix this.
It's understandable that you're used to approaching tools/solutions with a "fix it" mentality. This "fix it" mentality never works, because you do not need to be fixed. Attempting to fix yourself only results in the perpetuation of the narrative that you need to be fixed, that you are not whole and are lacking something, and that there are always more and more things about yourself that need to be "fixed."
You are not lacking anything. I will never try and fix you, or perpetuate the idea that you need to be fixed. My goal is to help you uncover the perfect, unique wholeness that already exists within you. When we can tap into this wholeness, numbing, controlling and self-sabotaging patterns that prevent us from experiencing the ease and abundance that is our natural state, fall away.
Willpower, diets, supplements, strategies, behavioral changes, efforting and controlling, attempting to change your thoughts and adjusting your mindset are futile until you can learn to approach these tools from a place of already being whole. Remembering your inherent whole, complete, lovable nature is the missing piece that determines whether or not you will ever attain true peace, fulfillment, abundance and ease, no matter how many superficial strategies you implement.
Individuals who I’ve worked with who’ve "tried everything," experienced profound shifts as a result of working together (scroll down to see their feedback!)
I want to move past the invisible walls, but I am honestly afraid of diving into this work. Part of me is afraid if I open this door, I’ll drown or get stuck in whatever comes up. How do I know if I’m ready?
It is 100% normal to have some fear and nerves about this process. We think that feeling our pain and confronting our darkness will consume us, when really it's precisely when we stop resisting our fear that we are liberated from it.
You must be willing to let go of the shame and be 100% honest with yourself in order for this work to be effective. If you aren't ready to uncover what's blocking you beneath the surface then you may not be ready for this - and there's nothing wrong with that. You are exactly where you need to be, and you will know when you are ready for this work.
And by the way, there's truly nothing to fear- this work isn't scary :)
One past client reported,
“My biggest hesitation was being unsure of how uncomfortable I was going to have to get. But now, I feel like I have shed off so many layers of darkness and pain. I feel lighter and happier! My mind feels more clear and free. I have worked through a lot of pain that I have been hanging onto for years. I sat with the uncomfortable feelings and emotions, brought them to surface when we would talk about them and really felt those feelings and emotions. I knew deep down that was the only way to not carry so much darkness and pain with me anymore.” - Erin S.
Do you offer any other services or ways of working together other than 1:1 Mentorship?
I also offer a deep dive 1:1 Coaching program. Learn more here!
I'm interested! What's the next step?
Whether you're interested in working together or have more questions, the next step is to book a free call with me, where we will get to know one another and make sure this feels like an amazing fit. Then we'll get started from there!
"I was really struggling with being uncomfortable in my body and always struggling with food. I have hated my body for years and never felt good enough. I would eat “good” for awhile and then eat “bad” for awhile. I was constantly worrying about what I ate and if I ate “bad” I would feel like a failure for eating “bad."
Now, my relationship to food comes from a place of freedom. I don’t beat myself up for enjoying a piece of chocolate cake when I want it. I naturally want to feed my body more nourishing foods because they make me feel better. I have built up so much awareness over the past several weeks that I don’t want as much of the sugar and junk food as before. I’m aware of my good days and my bad days because that’s how life is, full of ups and downs and twists and turns. I eat what I want, when I want and don’t beat myself up over what I have eaten. This is such a profound goal of mine, as I have craved to feel this way for a very long time.
I bought a big bag of M & M’s the other day. I ate a small handful of them and was able to seal the bag up without continuing to reach for more. I had the awareness that I was satisfied to stop eating them. Before, I would have eaten almost the entire bag and felt sick afterwards.
My mind feels more clear and free. I have worked through a lot of pain that I have been hanging onto for years. I sat with the uncomfortable feelings and emotions, brought them to surface when we would talk about them and really felt those feelings and emotions. I knew deep down that was the only way to not carry so much darkness and pain with me anymore."
- Erin S.
I did not even have the awareness to know what I was struggling with before I met Eden. I tried so hard to control my food intake and then when something shitty happened I would let myself indulge in ALL the food. Leaving myself feeling ashamed and disappointed the next day. This cycle was very active for me. I had no idea how to stop. I thought the only way to stop it was with more control. Then I could finally feel happy with myself.
Things have drastically changed since working with Eden. I finally have the awareness and tools to heal myself. SO many revelations surfaced while working with Eden. I have cultivated a relationship with my inner child, that I continue to get to know and heal with.
This was done through Eden's work, showing me how to open up that relationship. I cried more times with Eden than most people. Those tears were filled with hope, clarity, sadness, and compassion for myself. I learned what TRUE self care was with Eden.
The importance of loving myself UNCONDITIONALLY was the most profound lesson I took away from my time with Eden. This work is never ending, but now I have tools I can utilize in my back pocket when emotions come up. I now notice when uneasy emotions surface and my first instinct is to go to the kitchen to stuff them down with a bagel. However, I no longer feel hopeless to myself. I know what it feels like to be empowered and to fully embrace myself.
I finally understand what it means to intentionally sit with my emotions. I was able to identify in real time, when I was using food to stuff down an emotion. I grew in my ability to sit and be aware of what was happening with my body. Multiple times, while listening to Eden's guided meditations I was able to feel a discomfort in my body and trace that back to a painful memory trying to surface.

"I had hesitations about working together because I never really took the time to sit with myself & tried to find the source of WHY I had such a horrible relationship with food. Did I really want to face that? Did I really care about my relationship with food ~that~ much or was I just blowing it out of proportion? Was this program going to be for me?
I struggled with binge eating, terrible self esteem, body dysmorphia, anxiety when it comes to food - what do I eat? Am I eating enough? Is this good for me?
After working together, I LOVE MYSELF THESE DAYS! I feel confident, full of appreciation for just having an able body to keep me alive. I finally feel like I can eat food that fuels me & I don't even crave junk anymore. I still have my days of over-eating, but I don't look at it as "over-eating" anymore. I eat what makes my body feel nourished, I enjoy food when it is given to me, I enjoy trying my mom's fresh baked treats without shame.
I have developed a morning routine which includes taking time to be with myself and face my emotions. I’ve been able to establish if I am actually hungry or just looking to fill the void with an outside vice and I’ve learned to come from a place of compassion for myself rather than shame - which has also extended through my relationships.
Also, PROCESSING MY EMOTIONS!!! This has been a game changer for me. Actually allowing myself the space to establish that "calm container" & really FEEL & work through those hard, icky emotions instead of pushing them away."
- Lindi S.
"Before working together I was struggling with binging, restricting, basically being in a food related prison.
Now, things have changed. I feel like I have always known I ate to emotionally regulate but never knew how to get out of that in a successful and sustainable way. I did not believe there was a future for me that had a healthy relationship with food. I thought I was broken and had no hope. Truly. My food issues brought me farther down than even my addiction. I had no idea how connected my food issues were to my trauma and inner child. I still struggle with food but it is evolving sooooooooooo much.
The "diet" mentality is leaving me (thank goodness)--if it ain't freedom I don't want it lol. I know the restrictive life is not for me. I'd rather fail trying to be free than succeed being in a restrictive prison or never ending binge cycle.
I am so much more relaxed around food. Even people around me realize it. I used to be in either this restrictive regimen or chaotic binge. I'm not going crazy weighing my food or avoiding certain foods or being a bottomless pit all of the time. It has not left BUT it is so much better.
My self care has basically begun lololol I cannot even say it improved because there was much to begin with 😆. I am aware of how much I did not prioritize self care AT ALL. Food was my only outlet for self care i.e. eating something I love after a stressful event, being sad and eating over it etc. Some days are better than others but at least I have this inner voice that is like, 'Hey girl no wonder you are feeling funky and eating everything in sight or hating the way you look because when is the last time you did some intentional self care?'"
