Hello and Welcome! My name is Roxanne Elaine Smith. I started this blog in 2010, after my youngest child went to college, with the intention of just sharing my healing journey, songs, and poetry with the hope of possibly helping others in the process. Within a year, I had 24,000 views and started a thriving life coaching/intuitive spiritual counseling business helping other highly sensitive souls with childhood wounds. Now this blog has over 250,000 views.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Child and Family Services with emphasis in humanistic counseling psychology, sociology, family dynamics, and child development. More recently I got my certification as an ordained minister so I can also do spiritual counseling and mentoring. Before I started this blog there was nothing more important to me than raising children with high self-esteem and to be emotionally healthy. Our 2 children are grown and on their own now, and my husband and I couldn’t be prouder of them, not just because of their accomplishments and achievements but because of the relationships we have with them and the caring, loving people they have become. We are supportive and encouraging of whatever they choose to do with their lives and we are there for them to listen to their feelings and they in turn are supportive and encouraging to us and grateful and loving human beings.
I have discovered many things along the way to building a healthy family and finding my true purpose in life. I have discovered I am an INFJ, an empath, a highly sensitive person (HSP), an avid journaler, and a creative writer of self-help healing poetry and especially songs–I am a singer/songwriter/guitarist/performer having written over 60 songs–including my songs of hope and healing featured on this blog. These songs were written mostly to help myself through the pain from my many childhood wounds and the ups and downs of life. These songs have turned out to be very healing for others as well. Also I have discovered the depth of my skills as an Empathic and Intuitive Life Coach. With this, I have discovered my true purpose in life–all my skills of writing and singing and songwriting have been catalysts in helping me express and find my true voice–to realize that my true purpose is empowering other highly sensitive souls to heal from their wounds from childhood and become the person they are meant to be. I also do this through my songs. Currently under development, my music will also be part of my healing coaching practice with my songs as a form of energetic music therapy combined with energy healing.
After taking a break from this blog for a few years I have come back to it with a new spiritually-awakened outlook on life. I have always written with a spiritual perspective on this blog but as of 2018 I am adding that I am a Certified Reiki II Energy Healer, Spiritual Counselor, and Intuitive Angel Channel. Yes, my ability to listen to my inner guidance has gone a step further to where I am clearly recognizing the help that I am receiving from above and get clear answers to questions as well. More info about this is explained on my website EmpathicSoulHeal.com
As I am learning more and more about my new spirituality, I have discovered that, as a highly sensitive person, I am physically sensitive to cosmic changes to the planet such as solar flares, full moons, eclipses, and I am learning in-depth about such things as ascension symptoms. I don’t know much about astrology yet but I love listening to channeled messages on YouTube which bring me great comfort–it all seems to resonate with my soul and my purpose as a “shining light of God’s Love grounded in the earth”–a phrase that came to me when I was receiving my reiki training. After much inner work, I am so honored to have arrived at a place in my life where I have overcome the negative effects of the abandonment wounds, the PTSD, the codependence, poor boundaries, past life residue, the adrenal fatigue, systemic candidiasis, and a myriad of other health problems. I am able to successfully heal myself with self-care practices, reiki, a healthy diet, and a mild but diligent exercise regime. It is truly amazing how I feel younger now than I did in my 30s when I had chronic fatigue and so many food allergies. As I asked for help from above, I was lead to the right people to help me at every step of the way and I continue to manifest many amazing things that I never dared to dream for myself at one time.
Now it is an honor and a privilege for me to provide comfort, support, and healing to any soul who is in emotional pain and to let them know there is hope and someone out there who understands. With the help of this blog site, it is my hope to validate, inspire, and give hope to people through my writing, my music, and my availability to you as an Empathic and Intuitive Coach which includes the following: Life Coach/Intuitive Spiritual Counselor, Reiki Energy Healer, Mentor, Reader/Channeler. So often a person just needs a companion to listen–someone to validate the complex and confusing painful feelings that come up when childhood wounds are triggered and then keep us from moving forward to become our true selves. I offer myself as an “enlightened witness”, and mentor to hold space for any person who needs to be heard about childhood wounds and if you have no family members or friends who understand you. I can also help with blocked creativity, and I specialize in inner child healing and narcissistic abuse recovery.
