We had the good fortune of connecting with Greg Moran and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Greg, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My journey of healing began in 2014 when I encountered severe gastrointestinal issues that eventually had me in a really low place in life. I finally was given the diagnosis of ulcerative colitits in 2015, almost a full year after my digestive issues began. Since then, I have been able to heal my body naturally through completely changing my diet, THC oil (also known as Rick Simpson Oil), and embracing mindfulness and embodiment practices such as yoga, meditation and breathwork.

Throughout this journey, it has shown me that the body contains all of the answers and that its natural state is one of healing and regeneration on every level. The key is that we have to consciously create the environment for the body to function as it was meant to. This often means making lifestyle changes that support our body’s natural healing capabilities, as well as doing the deep psycho-emotional work that often underlies chronic health conditions of every kind.

My mission is to help people remember the power they hold in their body, that health is their natural state and birthright, and that all the answers live within their body.

In creating my business, True Health Awakening, my intention is to guide others back to the innate wisdom that lives within their body, to illuminate and reveal the subconscious programs and stories that keep us stuck in perpetual self-limiting cycles, and provide the tools, resources, and practices needed to rewrite these self-limiting programs in ways that actually affirm the life they desire to live.

Through Conscious-Connected Breathwork and Life Coaching, I help clients to soothe their nervous system and find safety in their bodies, unearth deep-seated beliefs and subconscious programs that are keeping them stuck, and empower them to begin making the steps towards the life they know is possible.

All of the answers you seek can be found within your body. You just need to create the right environment for those answers to be realized. It would be my greatest honor to support you in your journey.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My business, True Health Awakening, was created in order to remind and guide people back to their bodies, where their greatest healing resides, waiting to be accessed and awakened. It is through learning to listen deeply to the body’s messages, making the necessary life changes to support these messages, and healing the deeper aspects of our true Self, that we awaken and embody the infinite potential within us all. This begins with nervous system regulation, and through practices such as breathwork, meditation, and embodiment practices, we are able to reconnect with the body’s innate wisdom and move towards the life we truly desire to live.

I feel blessed to have gone through all that I have because it has provided me with the tools and resources to approach this deep healing work from the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels of one’s Being. In learning to support myself and hold myself through all of the challenges (really opportunities and initiations) along the way, I have shown myself that anything is possible when we do the inner work and make the commitment to ourselves to live our dreams.

Building this business has been quite the experience and I still feel I am only at the beginning of it, with the best yet to come. It has illuminated so much within myself and really invited me into deeper levels of intention and intimacy with all parts of myself. Every time I have encountered challenges, I go inwards, realizing that these challenges are ultimately here for my benefit and that they are invitations and initiations to expand into the next level of leadership. Of course, having help from friends along the way has been paramount in me doing the work in clearing and healing the internal blockages and stories that are often rooted in lack, scarcity, and fear.

Deciding to start your own business will bring up all of the deeply rooted self-limiting beliefs and fears, and it is in having compassion for those parts of yourself, while also honoring the commitment to yourself to live your greatest life, that allows for the most profound healing and reclamation to occur. When you are able to soften your edges, becoming intimate with the most tender parts of yourself, you are able to heal those deep wounds and step into greater levels of personal empowerment and embodiment.

I feel it is my dharma to guide and support others in the remembrance of their infinite potential. Through peeling back the layers of our stories and programs, we are able to reconnect with our true Self, the Inner Healer, and the innate wisdom of our Heart. I feel blessed every single day to be sharing these offerings and to be living the life that I live.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Where I would take a best friend who was visiting…

Well, first of all, there are so many amazing places around San Diego to visit! Definitely high on that list would be snorkelikng at La Jolla Shores and La Jolla Cove, seeing the abundance of marine life that lives in those areas (especially in the summer!). Trilogy Sanctuary and Maya Moon Collective are two of my favorite spots for food, cacao, and great vibes. Black’s Beach is a magical place and the cliffs at Gliderport are one of my favorite sunset locations. Hiking at Mission Trails, Julian and Mount Laguna are both beautiful locations. Ocean Beach is a fun little portal to enter into as well. In essence, lots of outdoor adventures and sunshine!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
There are so many people that have been such huge catalysts along my journey.

Thank you to Laura, my ex-partner, who did more than I could ever imagine while I was healing from ulcerative colitis. You are an amazing woman and I am grateful for all that you’ve done for me, taught me, and all that we have shared.

Thank you to my parents who have supported me so much, especially through my healing journey with ulcerative colitis. You have done so much and I am eternally grateful for you both.

Thank you to the countless friends I have encountered along my journey for encouraging me to follow this path and reflecting back to me the gifts that I carry. There are too many of you to name here. Just know that I love and cherish you all and am grateful for all that I have learned, and continue to learn, from having you in my life.

Thank you to Rick Simpson for sharing your story and providing the materials for how to make your own THC Oil. Following your treatment protocol completely changed my life, healed my ulcerative colitis, and showed me that Mother Nature truly provides everything we could ever need.

Thank you to Kaya Leigh, founder of the Sacred Breath Academy, for doing the work that you do. Studying Breathwork under your wisdom and guidance has been the single biggest catalyst to healing on all levels of my Being and I am beyond honored every single day to be able to share this powerful healing modality with others. Engaging with the Breath in this way has truly unlocked so much within me and I am infinitely grateful to be a part of this lineage of Breathwork.

Ultimately, I want to thank the Universe for all of the miraculous synchronicities that have guided me to this exact moment. Trusting in the Unknown and following my Heart has been the greatest medicine that Life could have ever given me and I am constantly in awe of the infinite magic and miracles that occur in each and every single moment. Thank you for this opportunity of Life.
