Today we’d like to introduce you to Adriana Soltero-Munoz.
Adriana, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Nurturing The Goddess Within was an idea that blossomed out of a pure desire to assist women on their healing journey. I know it sounds so cliche but I myself had to make that journey in order to discover my spiritual gifts. I have been a massage therapist since 2005 and over the years, I have built close relationships with some of my regular clients. They would confide their problems to me. At times, I wanted to give my opinion but I didn’t want to overstep boundaries with my clients. I had no psychology or counceling background. All I could do was listen. At that moment, I knew I had to do something to provide a healthy emotional release for those clients.
I found a brochure in my house that I had picked up at a metaphysical shop a while ago. As I looked through the menu of services I found my answer, “life Coach”. I didn’t know how I was going to pay for the program but I knew in my heart that I had to. I called, made a deposit and enrolled for the course, Not knowing at the time that my greatest client I would ever have was myself. I was so excited and would tell myself, ‘This is so awesome, I’m going to help so many people, etc.” I could not wait to get started. I had a phone interview with Sandra, I told her my story and she was excited to meet me. So excited, in fact, that she held up the class for half an hour because I got lost and was running late.
During our first break, I stepped outside to get some air and two of the other students were standing outside as well, a brother and sister. They introduce themselves and the woman turns to me and asks, “What is so special about you that we waited half an hour? I felt so frustrated, so ashamed, so unworthy, so mad at her for asking that question, and even madder at myself because the only answer I could come up with in my head was, “nothing! THERE IS NOTHING SPECIAL ABOUT ME.”
As I got to know everyone, business owners, relationship counselors, healers. For the first time in my life, I found a place where I felt equal. Nobody looked at me as an inferior. They looked past all of my exterior beings and only saw my soul. That is what I want to do for people. Is help them look past the illusion of what they believe they are and tap into the infinite source that already exists within them. I resisted this for myself when I first got into Life Coaching. I didn’t want to go there. I would tell myself I would get to it later. Then, situations would start to happen where I would be forced into confronting my demons.
During that time, I started a meditation group that has, for the past two years stayed pretty consistent once a week. And along the way, we have built a wonderful tribe of women who all have contributed to my own healing as well.
Has it been a smooth road?
You know whenever I would be faced with an obstacle I would tell myself, “I got this. I don’t need help”. The best thing that has worked for me is letting go of resistance. People come into your life to bring in a new perspective and that will always be aligned with whatever it is you desire.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Nurturing The Goddess Within – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I’ve been a massage therapist for about 13 years, Reiki and life coach for 4, but what I am most proud of is the meditation group and I have even expanded it out to kids. That is the most rewarding. Is being able to help their confidence and learn to work together.
Are there any apps, books, podcasts or other resources that you’ve benefited from using?
I listen to Abraham Hicks all the time. I love documentaries and I also try to connect with others in my community. Usually, through meetup.
