“Everything happens for a purpose. There are no accidents, only events that we don’t understand. A part of you already knows the meaning of what is happening in your life; you only need to open up to it, to allow yourself to know that you know.”
My name is Alicia Crockett and I am no stranger to the unexpected and sometimes devastating changes that life can bring. I have walked through emotional abuse, a divorce, a near death car accident and the recovery process that comes after, the most amazing and difficult relationship of my life, the diagnosis of my first son with Cystic Fibrosis and the death of my second son.
The thing is, I am a better person for all of it; every painful, tear-streaked, angry, resentful bit of it.
This unfolding of life events has set the stage for me to gain some profound understandings regarding the nature of change and the grief, anger and loneliness that can accompany these life transitions.
Because of all this I also know that I am here to help bring a greater understanding to the world that change is normal and wonderful; it is life being lived. Without change things would be pretty boring, predictable and stagnant. Change is also inevitable. Even the "most awful" of changes can be seen in a positive light if you know how to look at it.
Life is constantly leaving us little messages and signposts along the way. Are you paying attention?
When you learn that change is a natural part of your life you can begin to “change your relationship to change” as Neale Donald Walsch talks about in his book When Everything Changes Change Everything.
Wow...that's a lot of change; I might need to change that!
Once you start to change your ideas about change, you can begin to find meaning and purpose in the unfolding of your life as it is. Having walked through this process over and over again in my own life, I can also help you walk through this process with mindfulness and integrity as you dive deeply into your truth.
We are on God's (universe's, spirit's, life's- insert word of choice) playground here. It is time to really play!
On a more technical note: I studied Biomedical Sciences, Psychology and Nutrition at the University of Minnesota. I am also a certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher, Aromatherapist, am trained in and assist at trainings in Ho’oponopono- the Hawaiian method of forgiveness and reconciliation, EFT- emotional freedom technique, Healing Touch Energy Therapy and guided meditation among many other modalities. Beginning in 2008, I lead workshops on whole food nutrition, helping clients with health, diet and lifestyle issues. I have also developed my own line of all natural, luxury body care products called Spirit Nutritionals and make custom products to fit an individuals needs. In 2011 I was invited to join Neale Donald Walsch, author of the Conversations with God book series, to teach yoga and movement classes at his retreats and I continue to do so four times a year. Before becoming a coach I worked in infertility medicine helping to counsel those who are going through the infertility process find peace with their decisions and ability or inability to have a child.
But more than all that, I LOVE this stuff. This is my life's passion and purpose. I have no doubt about that.
