What would happen if you fully embraced your true self?

I see it in you.

That inner spark itching to ignite the flames of your dreams, so you can set the world on FIRE.

The badassery that you’re finally ready to unleash, because staying quiet and not using your voice has made you feel restless, stifled, and invisible.

That unrivaled drive and “I get shit done” attitude that’s gotten you so far in life already. (Some might call you type A, but who says that’s a bad thing? ;))

I also see the things that are holding you back from fully stepping into your power.

The self-sacrificial nature within you because you’re caring and compassionate, and often put the needs of others first.

The hesitancy to connect with your desires, because you’ve been taught that productivity takes priority over pleasure.

The inability to really own your story – and yeah, I mean all of it – because parts of it still hurt and fill you with shame and guilt.

I know these things because I’ve been there, too.

And I’m living proof that if you want something bad enough and open yourself up to changing your thoughts, habits, and beliefs, you can create a life you weren’t even able to dream up before.

The patriarchal world that we live in has done a number on us! As womxn, we’ve been kept small and disconnected from our power, but the world would truly be a better place if more of us became empowered to make hard – but necessary – changes at home and in the world.

Somewhere deep down (as my son would say, all the way down in your toes)...

You know you deserve something different.

It’s easy to shy away from stepping into your power, because you come up against fear that you’ll lose yourself in the process of helping make the world a better place.

The truth is, you don’t have to be a martyr to do good in the world.

Instead of giving up all of yourself to help everyone around you, you can work with your core desires and beliefs to create positive changes in your own life first, that causes a ripple effect to benefit others.

How would it feel to believe in yourself and your wildly beautiful dreams enough to take the next step, because deep down you know you’re meant to blaze your own trail?

You, my dear, deserve more than sitting on the couch, physically and emotionally drained every night, eating a bowl of cereal for dinner while scrolling through your Facebook feed because you just can't deal with "real" life anymore.

The world needs you to share your unique expression of magic.

And that’s where I come in.

About Me

When people first meet me, they assume I’ve always been the healthy and well-adjusted individual I am today.

What they don't see is that I'm a white sheep – or someone who’s thrived, despite growing up amidst chaos and dysfunction.

kendalyn-banks.jpg

Over my lifetime I've had to face the abandonment of a parent, cope with losing my childhood home in a fire, witness the dramatic effects of alcoholism and mental illness on several members of my family, and repeatedly watch many people I love get in their own way of receiving help and healing.

Most recently, I suffered the loss of one of my younger sisters who was never able to get the help she needed and deserved and turned to substances to heal her pain instead.

Due to the turmoil I experienced as a child and young adult, I felt lost and confused about my life's purpose.

I didn't have the right people or tools to help me make sense of things and recognize that there was a different way of living.

I became an adult way before it was my time, and spent many years of my life being serious and responsible without knowing how to let go and have a little fun.

I had a hard time accepting help, because I didn't trust anyone else to take care of me. I grew disconnected from myself and, sadly, I didn't feel entitled to enjoy life. I thought that everything had to be a struggle because that's just the way life was (sound familiar?).

Over the years I've struggled with self-worth, social anxiety, disordered eating, disdain for my body, stress-related IBS, childhood trauma and the limiting beliefs and stories I'd created in my mind to "protect myself" that I've had to work diligently to overcome.

Fortunately, something deep inside of me awakened seven years ago, when I stepped into a holistic fitness and healing studio in southern Massachusetts.

Not only did I relearn how to love my body and nurture a healthier relationship with it, but my eyes were opened up to a path of healing on a mental, emotional, and spiritual level I never knew existed.

I began to explore what intuition was and how to access it, and soon became a Reiki practitioner. This helped me step into trusting myself and trust that things were unfolding as they were meant to.

I could see how life wasn't happening to me, it was happening for me.

I no longer needed to escape in fantasy worlds of books and movies to feel a sense of connection, belonging, and magic!

Through the healing arts and working with practitioners, I've seen firsthand how life-changing it is when you can choose to bring love, compassion, and forgiveness to the people and situations that have hurt you, and how keeping it all to yourself will continue to keep you stagnant.

Here’s what that magic looked like in action:

  • I developed a wonderful relationship with my (now) husband and felt what it's like to explicitly trust someone with my whole heart, hopes, and dreams.

  • I learned how to mother and nurture myself so that I could step fully into becoming a loving mother to my son and ensure my wounds don't get passed on to him.

  • I've also discovered how to become fully rooted and confident in myself, my values, and my personal beliefs so that I can stand tall and grounded in the face of fear and uncertainty.

I've come to realize that while healing can be extremely painful and challenging, that it's still better than the alternative – and that no one has to go through it alone.

I believe that I've gone through all of these life experiences not to allow others to pity me, but so that I could rise up and help those who can't necessarily see a clear way out for themselves.

I'm a professional space holder for others going through the thick of it, and have made it my mission to be there to help you get unstuck, too.
