Welcome to my community of inner revolutionaries busting our hearts wide open! I’m Khatija (pronounced Kadeeja) and I’m on the path of revolutionizing my relationship to my heart and the collective heart. I’m a truth-teller, a space holder, an emotional alchemist, a heart coach, a mentor, a wise woman, and an inner revolutionary.
“Alchemists . . . take in the “hazardous waste” of human experience and return it to the world as nourishment, refreshment, and beauty.”
– Catherine MacCoun
I believe in the power of the heart, and that the work we do in our inner space allows us to access and live from our hearts the way we were meant to, in connection and love with everything in the Universe. When we become the healthiest version of us then we are affecting and changing everything at an unseen level.
I am fascinated by the relationship between science and spirituality. I am a believer that we can learn to heal and rewire our internal experience and greatly influence our external experience. I know that all people really need are the tools to connect to themselves again and to learn how to allow themselves to be changed by their experiences in order to see their lives change.
I’m committed to being a powerful avenue to helping the whole world heal in this way, through my own inner work and through guiding others on their journey of heart liberation.
There are a couple of foundational truths for me which inform my work and purpose:
- Everyone’s reason for being on this planet involves doing his or her inner work. There is nothing to do out there until we process our pain and transform our relationships with ourselves and with the world around us.
- Stories heal, but only when we work with our own to mine them for the jewels hidden within them and when we share them with others.
I love stories and have always found myself drawn to and fascinated by the many stories that weave together the human experience. What connects me most to those I meet on this journey are the stories of challenge, triumph and pain that set me on my own path of healing. I’ve also always been a seeker and along the way I’ve gained so much in the way of insights, understandings, and tools. I know what it’s like to be at the lowest point and feel everything crumbling. I’ve lost and I’ve rebuilt and I did that work from the inside out. I hold an MA in Counseling and have over 20 years of experience in the field which allowed me to engage every learning and practice I had acquired through this background and through the self-growth/spiritual path.
