Both pleasant and painful experiences have shaped who I am today as I struggled with mental health issues myself while growing up. I was born in Timisoara, a beautiful city in the West of Romania, and moved to London in 2006.
In London, after working as an au pair for two years, circumstances led me to work in Finance for almost ten years in what now feels like another lifetime. Even though it was a rewarding experience in many ways, in my early 30s, I began to feel like my life lacked purpose and meaning. So, I decided to follow my passion for self-development, mental health and spirituality and enrolled in a Postgraduate course in Psychosynthesis counselling that lasted three years. During my training, I realised that I had ADHD traits; this helped explain some of the struggles in my life, mostly in school. I began to explore neurodiversity through a transpersonal lens.
I have been aware of and attracted to energy therapies for many years. In 2020 I developed a sudden skin condition, and after not having too much luck with western medicine, I decided to try an alternative approach. I discovered Jikiden Reiki and fell in love with its simplicity and values, and I began my deep self-healing journey; this led me to become a professional Reiki practitioner.
I also have an interest in women’s spirituality. I was baptised and raised as an Orthodox; however, in my teenage years, I became disappointed with the dogmatic religion. After years of outer and inner exploration of various faiths and beliefs, I began my journey of connecting with the divine in a way that makes more sense to me: an undogmatic and unique way that feels more authentic and fulfilling to me.
I feel that part of my human journey is to connect with my love for words. A few years ago, I started to write short stories and poems, and since then, they have been my favourite way of connecting to myself and the world around me. Soulwarrior.blog is a personal project that is very close to my heart.
On my journey of Self-discovery, I met amazing people who supported me along the way, who held a safe and loving space for my true self to emerge. I hope I can offer you a similar space as you embark on your unique journey of connecting with your authentic self.
