Today we’d like to introduce you to Luisa Jackson.
Luisa, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I have a master’s degree from Pepperdine University. I graduated with honors in Business Management Administration & Entrepreneurship. I spent ten years of my life working for the largest supplier of rocket engines for NASA. I supported the Space Shuttle Program and also, the program that replaced the Space Shuttle. In this capacity, I worked as a project scheduler and also, supported their Strategy Organization in various roles and Finance. I was also part of their Executive Leadership Program.
I am a certified Kundalini yoga teacher. I also have a certification for Energy Healing and Holistic Treatments from The Lion Heart Institute in Los Angeles. I have dedicated ten years of my life to study Shamanism and healing rituals in South America.
My career in Holistic Healing started in 2007 after I experienced a debilitating disease. This changed my life forever and pushed me to learn more about myself and my health. My career in San Diego started back in 2016 when I opened my healing practice in the city of Encinitas.
Has it been a smooth road?
My journey in the wellness and holistic industry started in 2007 in the San Fernando Valley, when I experienced a debilitating disease. Far was I from imagining that I was going to be sick and that the doctors were telling me, I was going to have to take pharmaceutical medicine for the rest of my life and possible, have surgery.
I was disappointed in life and experienced sadness in my heart. No money, no tittles in NASA, nothing could stop the feeling of emptiness in my heart. It was here when I realized it was time to start a new career. It is here, in this chapter of my life, where I equipped myself with the information that I needed to overcome these obstacles.
With this experience, I realized the body can heal. I realized; the Earth provides everything you need. I realized the importance of a good diet. There are so many alternative methods of healing.
Now, I dedicate every minute of my life to show people they can heal too. The body is so intelligent; we can achieve healing without surgery, without expensive medications, just by using the natural elements of the Earth. Being raised in a third world country gave me the tools I needed to excel in difficult times. Putting so much effort into my school and grades gave me the biggest opportunity of my life to work for the only supplier of Rocket Engines. This career opportunity changed my life forever.
Having a mentor that supported me when nobody else would was very important. My Aerospace coworkers thought I was crazy to leave a prominent career to become a yoga teacher. I appreciate now my tenacity to leave and lose it all to gain it all. My mentor helped me to develop a career plan.
We’d love to hear more about the business.
The most exciting moment in my career is helping create a business where I share my PASSION. I am utilizing my personal experience and knowledge with natural healing tools, to provide ideas and information to educate our employees and customers. I now have 6 wonderful holistic retail locations in Southern California. We also sell our products online. We started a new division in Wholesale last year. We distribute high energy products to the entire United States.
I am currently focusing on creating an online platform that is going to support the next generation of online shopping. We are supporting the healers, seekers, life lovers and all those that want to learn more about the magical powers of the Earth. I also believe, everyone needs to go through a healing process and we are here to support just that. Like what happened to me in 2007. I needed a place with the information. Here it is.
I want to teach the world about the healing benefits of crystals, and organic essential oils and how you can use these elements to generate wellbeing. This online platform is also designed to help small businesses sell their products online. We support a big number of small vendors in Encinitas. By working with them, we are helping our local communities move forward and create more stable incomes.
We at Earth’s Elements, believe in authenticity, integrity, in higher consciousness. We are excited to offer products that are especially designed for the soul, that are sustainable, that are created with the best ingredients. We are passionate about people and health. Our goal is for our customers to never have to worry about reading labels.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Our industry is changing big time. Specially, after the pandemic. Customer preferences are changing, our supply chain is changing. We see store fronts disappearing over time. This will happen. Our customers want to shop online. The future is online.
Also, people are becoming more conscious about the products they buy. They are asking more questions about the origin of the product, the process it took to get to the store. This is something we never saw before. People want products that come from fair labor and paying fair wages to the makers.
