I'm Jillian. It is very nice to meet you, I am so happy you are here!
I am a passionate healer who believes in the mind-body connection. There is an inner healer within us all. I am devoted to assisting you to tap into that inner healer and connect you with the most important connection of all... yourself! When we can connect to ourselves, we can heal from anything and life is truly limitless. I come to you with extensive knowledge and experience in Nursing, Social Work and Psychedelics. Working within a framework of ethics, values and morals is above all, my priority. Efficacy and safety remains at my forefront at all times.
My entire life I have wanted to help people to feel better and to see them smile and be happy. It always bought me great joy being able to make people smile and laugh. It wasn't until my thirties that I realized how unhealthy I was. For years I was preoccupied with body image issues, disordered eating issues and subjected myself to abusive relationships.
In 2020 during the start of the pandemic, I was diagnosed with a brain tumour. This shattered my entire existence. I had brain surgery in July of 2020, followed by intense radiation and chemotherapy. The doctor's gave me a grim prognosis. As a mother to one beautiful daughter, I refused to believe that this was my destiny. It was there and then that I decided to embark on what has become the most beautiful and profound journey of my life!
For years before my diagnosis, I was told I was severely depressed and always given medications to "make me feel better". It was actually a relief to figure out that I was not depressed at all and that the doctors were all wrong! I began to meditate daily- sometimes 3 times a day. I read every book Dr. Joe Dispenza wrote and followed his meditations. His belief and experience with the mind body connection really resonated deep within me and I was determined to connect with mine! Deepak Chopra became my best friend (even though he doesn't know that I exist). I became more spiritual than I could have ever believed possible. This is where I became acquainted with psychedelics.
The trauma from my tumour, surgery and treatment was very much stuck within me. I knew I was suffering, scared and lost. The pain from childhood trauma's (verbally abusive and alcoholic father, abandoned by mother, life of broken and abusive relationships) resurfaced or better yet, surfaced to the point I could for the first time see them and knew this was the cause of past behaviours and poor self worth. I surrendered and gave trust to the plant medicines. It was then that I experienced something that I never knew or thought was possible. The strength that I saw within me was unlike anything I felt before. Pure love for myself and the power to heal was within. The power, connectedness and beauty of the universe was and still is everywhere I look. Psychedelics have literally saved my life in more ways than one!
I am proud to report- I am tumour free despite all medical prognosis and beliefs! I take no medications. I am an avid runner and enjoy a healthy living lifestyle. I am the happiest I have ever been and love myself more than I ever thought possible. My relationships with my family (husband & daughter) are the strongest and healthiest that they have ever been. Life is beautiful and there is a beautiful silence within my inner being that creates safety, hope and inspiration. None of this would have been possible without the sacred beauty of plant medicine.
I want to share, honour and connect you to yours because you're worth it and you have the inner intelligence to do this work and live the best life possible. Plant medicines allow us to see the beauty within ourselves; it allows the ego to be still and quiet; it allows us to see the blockages within and pour love into them so that we can heal and release it. Once we realize and feel what it means to be connected to ourselves- we can create the life truly want.
