Healing, Transformation, and Self-Trust with Nicolle Foster

Healing, Transformation, and Self-Trust with Nicolle Foster

In the field of personal growth and holistic wellness, Nicolle Foster emerges as a dedicated advocate for empowerment and healing. Her journey, marked by personal challenges and transformative experiences, led her to integrate a diverse educational background and spiritual exploration into her practice. Through her expertise in Reiki, ministerial work, and shamanism, Nicolle offers a unique blend of traditional therapeutic approaches and spiritual wisdom. With a focus on guiding individuals through life’s transitions and fostering resilience, she embodies the role of a compassionate and knowledgeable guide. In this feature interview, Nicolle candidly shares her insights on the synergy between energy healing and traditional therapy, the significance of seeking support, and the ongoing journey toward self-trust and empowerment.

Can you share more about your personal journey and how you transitioned from a place of feeling lost and invisible to becoming a beacon of empowerment for others?

I had a dark night of the soul, after divorce and losing everything in my world.  I desperately needed better tools than counselling alone was giving me.  I needed to learn tools to function, cope and manage life better.  I was also tired of being in trauma.

I was born sensitive, gentle, and empathic, I never quite fit in.  I also endured child abuse, and felt not enough, in all the ways. I was faking being an adult, without any care and tools to thrive.

I had the fortunate serendipitous experience of meeting a Reiki Master, a Shaman, and several Medicine Women, who catapulted my personal healing and spiritual journey.

How do you integrate your diverse educational background, including sociology, psychology, anthropology, and shamanism, into your approach to guiding individuals toward healing and empowerment?

My adventures came full circle from my studies in college to meeting spiritual healers later on in life.  In the decades in between, I became a minister, coach, and spa owner, to perform non-traditional ceremonies, women’s healing, and pampering. I love learning how everything connects and has meaning- finding the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit. Going deeper into both Reiki and Shamanism has given me a rich understanding of spiritual healing and personal growth, through connection to nature and all that is. I love to guide individuals toward a deeper sense of healing, empowerment, and self-discovery.

As a practitioner of Reiki, how do you see energy healing complementing traditional therapeutic modalities in supporting individuals through their healing journeys?

Reiki complements traditional therapies by supporting overall well-being during the healing process; helps the body heal faster from injuries, illness and surgery, and holds space for emotional healing as well.  Reiki works synergistically with counselling, therapy, massage, traditional and alternative medicines.  Humans are complex and multi-layered, and we need support emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

Your vision of being a “life doula” or “midwife of life” is quite profound. Can you describe what that means to you and how you guide individuals through their rebirths or transformative moments?

In general, our culture doesn’t value Rites of Passage anymore. I see myself as a guide who supports individuals through life transitions (weddings, deaths, welcoming children, new homes, and personal rebirths). I provide emotional support, guidance, and encouragement to help individuals, couples, and families navigate life changes, personal growth, and transitions and navigate challenges with resilience and grace.  I love having generations of clients, children and grandchildren who know and trust me.

What advice would you offer to individuals who may be struggling to trust in themselves or their journey toward healing and empowerment?

I would advise people to get support.  You don’t have to do things alone.  Seek guidance from trusted individuals or professionals.  Learn and practice self-compassion through this process.  Give yourself down time, reflective time, to promote self-care and self-discovery. It’s important to be patient with oneself and to remember that healing and empowerment are ongoing processes that require time and effort.
