If you’ve got a hankering to connect and root into to positive and nourishing light during the wildest & weirdest time of our lives, This is your place.
For too long you have pushed your limits, put everyone else first, stretched yourself thin, not in a good way.
Its time to give to yourself the respect & time you’ve been craving.
I hate being boxed in with labels, categories, and the judgement of other people on how I need to be. Many clients come to me because they want someone to cheer them on as they say, “Screw it!” to all the naysayers in your life and people who don’t want you to make yourself and your needs a priority.
How often do you sit around and think about taking care of yourself and making yourself feel happy & fulfilled?
If you’re thinking, hey, I take care of myself- at 10pm at night with coconut chocolate cookies and the Big Flower Fight on Netflix.
NO, that doesn’t count- although I do LOVE that flower- more flowers please! That’s more self-soothing, than sustainable self-care.
You’ve been getting the scraps of your time, your energy. By the end of the day you don’t feel grateful, don’t feel like working on that creative interest of yours, and just want a break from it all.
Now, more than ever, I know that you can’t keep on living with your needs put last every single day.
I believe that lasting happiness depends on:
- honoring your needs,
- feeling comfortable in your own skin,
- and how much you let your own creative expression out.
I’m a Garden Coach & Inner Wisdom Teacher.
I help you connect to the wisdom within and to start taking action on your creative interests.
The state of the world is rather chaotic and unpredictable right now.
That isn’t going to change immediately. I can work with you to help you tune into the creativity, confidence, and calm that you need to get through this time and even flourish and feel fulfilled.
Who am I?
Hey. I’m Rachel, a mountain girl living in South Carolina, loving my family of one girl, one boy, and one husband. I’ve got too many seed catalogs and just barely enough garden. Every year I convince my man to let me turn a little more lawn into garden.
I live in Greenville, SC (technically a lovely little small town called Travelers Rest) and still pop up to Asheville, NC my former home which I love.
My business is Soul Pioneer because you have a desire to walk through uncharted territory in your life and I can be the Trailblazer walking by your side.
I offer 1-to-1 coaching that honors your individuality, taps into your hidden superpower (your intuition and your unique gifts), and helps you to further unleash your own radiance & power (which typically also means more success & happiness).
I want to help you connect to your power and your inner wisdom.
Because you have so much richness of life, and bank account 😉 , waiting for you once you stop living life small and starting playing big and deeply from the heart.
There are lots of ways that you can tune into the wisdom of nature- her cycles and patterns and apply them to your life. When you do this, it has such a profound effect on your heart, mind, and soul :).
Listen my friend…
I’ve spent 20 years bringing out the potential in people. One person’s gifts, self-expression, and business-expression are so unique- never the same as another.
I don’t think I’m meant to live a humdrum life doing predictable things, and I have a feeling neither are you.
But it sometimes feels like the world doesn’t care about this.
It can feel like society or responsibilities need so much of us that it drains all the time we have to pursue our needs and dreams and we end up spending the days, the weeks, even years doing something for everyone.
Everyone but ourselves.
I know where you’re coming from, and I’d love to share my triumphs and lessons learned with you.
I want to help you learn essentials for living – living true to your heart and your vision and your center. Essentials for living an aligned life that no one ever taught you. I want to help you to fast-track to what I’ve learned the hard way.
I’ve dedicated my days- and sometimes my nights- to living this life with intention, happiness, and mindfulness. Often this has meant kicking convention out the door and surprising people with my fierce dedication to myself, to my true essence.
Do you know when you feel like you’re supposed to be doing big things, but everything in your life has a serious BLAH to it?
Are you feeling like you’re out of alignment with your life as it is meant to be?
It’s as if your entire life is in a holding pattern.
And you keep thinking you’re going to do something about living with more intention. But the months pass and you feel like you’re stagnant and stuck doing the same thing again and again.
I love to learn more and explore more; I will be sharing whatever new info that I come across that is helpful. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter so we can keep in touch.
Once upon a time…
I’m an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) and empath. I believe that being a dreamer, an idealist, a believer of ‘unrealistic” and fantastical things is what makes you amazing.
I’ve been a spiritual gal since my early days when I ran out of books to read that interested me from my local public library and started reading the New Age books lining the bookshelves at home.
In addition to my love for the spiritual life, I have a deep interest and love for science, hence getting a Master’s in Science – Soil Science. Did I mention, I love gardening?
I love finding the intersect between the material and the spiritual; logical and emotional.
I’ll tell you upfront, I don’t have a divinity degree, yoga teacher certification, or even experience sitting at the feet of the greatest minds of our times.
No, I’ve had to hike this trail myself.
I’ve figured this out through grit and determination, years of journaling, and lots of quiet reflection- while immersed in a world that wants to minimize living a purposeful, aligned life as something too woo-woo for honest consideration.
If you feel a yearning for a richer, brighter, more aligned life…..
..a life that seems better suited to you and your inner compass, then let’s stay connected and grow and blossom together.
I know that the world wants us to be our best versions of ourselves. When I look out at the trees and shrubs on a hike, I don’t see plants that wish that they had been more; I see plants that express the essence of their true nature. I know that you and I can do the same.
Let’s stay in touch!
I hope that this writing enlightens, inspires, and empowers you. If it does, send me a note!
The best way to keep in touch with me is to join my free newsletter (in the box at the top of the page). I send out weekly emails with tips and real talk from a recovered perfectionist, introvert who is making her life into something amazing! That’s what I want for you too!
If you’d like to get to know me a bit more, sign up and write back to my emails. I will reply to every email I get. Please drop me a line! I’m here for you.
Have a fabulous day! ~Rachel
