We had the good fortune of connecting with Emily Mearns and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Emily, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
Work life balance is the key to maintaining and sustaining an aligned and thriving career and life. Learning to harness your innate internal energy and wisdom allows you to blend both aspects of your life and work so you stay in a more constant state of being and feeling grounded and centered.
I grew up with the mentality and approach that you need to work hard to be successful. I applied that approach to my life’s goals and career only to find myself quickly burnt out and in a state of constant lack and over giving which took me away from actually experiencing and enjoying my life, my family, and my career.
I deeply believe in taking the practical actions steps necessary to bring the internal ideas and innovations to life and I also believe that this can be done in a way that feels expansive, fun, and exciting.
I see balance as the ability to pour your focus, love, and attention into you first and foremost so that you are able to pour into the other people and things in your life. Balance is a beautiful form of self care and self love. When you say no to things that don’t light you up or decide to quote people pleasing, you are allowing for even more space to create the balanced life of your dreams.
Balance to me looks like resting when needed and saying yes to only the things that support my dreams and goals.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I teach people how to tap back into their unique energy and soul aligned mission to create more impact and abundance within their lives and careers. I believe that everyone has come here with a deep driven purpose to change the world, and it is my goal to help activate and initiate that within others!
What sets my work apart from others is that I use a blend of approaches and tools to fully support the my client’s evolution and expansion journey. Some of these tools include meditation, light language, quantum energy healing, and human design. I am excited to bring this new high level approach of healing and ascension to people so they can feel more at ease and excited with the actions they are taking in their life and career. Many of these concepts are beginning to emerge in the mainstream which is very exciting to witness! The journey to bringing these teachings and information to light was not one that way easy. I had to break through a lot of internal mindset blocks and beliefs that were keeping me stuck in lack, fear, and scarcity. I quickly learned that in order to bring these high level truths and healings to the world, I would need to go within myself to do the healing, shed the layers, bring in new the awarenesses and perspectives and begin to boldly and courageously believe in myself and my mission. Learning to love and have faith in myself, my words, and my actions has paved the way of the road I am currently on. I want the world to know that life gets to be easy and each person is in control of their every day experiences and reality. For so long, people have been looking outside of themselves for the answer and it’s my intention and goal for everyone to begin to get back in the driver’s seat and take back control of their life and destiny.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I am a total relaxed nature loving gal who enjoys tea, music, cuddling dogs, relaxing, sunshine, and fresh vegan food!
• Eating – vegan pop up vendors/ food trucks, make food at home, plant power fast food, any restraint with vegan options
• Drinking – anywhere outdoors with a patio for fresh air and lighting. I don’t drink alcohol often – my go to drinks are matcha and black tea, coconut water, oat milk, and fresh juice
• Visit – botanical gardens in San Diego, the spa at the local resort for massages, local farmers market, beach for a walk, off-roading in the jeep
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I am honored to give credit to my journey and success to my partner, Seth, who so graciously supports me in all of my wild adventures and provides much needed reassurance, wisdom, and guidance which allows me to stay in a space of being beautifully grounded and balanced in all that I do.
