I believe that everyone is fighting a battle we know nothing about, so we should always be kind. I also believe that we are capable of healing beyond our wildest expectations. With this in mind, I believe we are all warriors in our own right and we all have a story to tell of our beautiful human resilience.
Healing Warrior handmade goods was born as the result of my personal story with addiction, mental health, grief and now my cancer journey. It sprung from my desire to cope with it all and help others as I healed.
My story began in 2006, when I surrendered to a life of recovery after a 10 year battle with addiction. Through that process, I met my husband and by 2016 we had welcomed two beautiful little girls into the world. Just 6 months after our youngest daughter was born, Ben suddenly and traumatically died, leaving me a widowed single parent at 33. Just 2 years later in 2019, an aggressive breast cancer diagnosis invaded my life resulting in major surgery and chemotherapy treatment. I searched for ways to cope because my former fitness outlet had been taken from me as my body was in the biggest fight of its life and needed to heal.
Since I was a child, I had a fascination with rocks and I am still known to spend hours scouring the ground or walking through gem stores lost in thought. The healing energy these stones provide has always brought me peace and it is my honour to share their gifts with you,
Each piece is sourced, designed and handcrafted by me in very limited quantities. I am a certified Yoga teacher, Reiki practitioner and charge each piece with Reiki upon completion. I make custom pieces upon request and would love to collaborate with you on that perfect piece.
It is my hope that I can help others along their journey by sharing my truth and healing through my creativity.
I am often called a warrior for all I have endured but I believe I am a healing warrior; choosing to constantly re-define my story and give others permission to do the same.
