My name is Ashlea Loveday and I am an intuitive life coach offering a NEW kind of self-help. I support spiritual and highly sensitive women towards self-love and self-acceptance. I teach them to find more peace, love and light in their lives every day.
This is my journey to finding more peace, love and light in my life…
I was brought up as a Catholic throughout my childhood. However, when I reached high school I found that I could not relate to the teachings, archaic rules, rigidity and uniformity of ‘organised religion’. I rebelled against it all and in turn I lost my faith completely. From high school until a few years ago I classified myself as an Atheist and I really didn’t believe in anything at all. It wasn’t until a few years ago, when Louise Hay’s You Can Heal Your Life landed in my lap; this was a huge turning point in my life. This book sparked my passion for self-help and personal development.
I started to open myself up to spirituality with each month gaining more and more faith, but still the idea of believing in ‘God’ still bugged me. I started using angel cards,meditating and learning about different concepts of faith and a higher power from different teachers such as Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra and Eckhart Tolle. I later realised that my issue was that the word ‘God’ to me was attributed to ‘organised religion’ and this just didn’t sit right with me. However, when I released my old attachment to the word ‘God’, I began to realise that it doesn’t matter what label you attached; God, Angels, Universe, Inner Guide, they all meant to same thing, believing in a higher power, a power greater than yourself.
What I have come to realise is that I do not have to follow an ‘organised religion’ in order to have faith in a higher power; I can mould my spiritual beliefs and practices to reflect what I truly believe in. Making peace with this has transformed my life.
Finding (Self) Love
I have always had health issues ever since I can remember, I was the girl at school who was always sick with colds or tonsillitis. When I was 18 I was diagnosed as a Coeliac and my immune system became even weaker.
Earlier this year I became bedridden with Vertigo for almost 2 weeks. My symptoms worsened and more began to pop up as the weeks went on. After months of being chronically ill and countless doctor and specialist visits, I found out I had a viral infection in my inner ear. Sounds harmless enough right. However, it seems my immune system was totally confused and instead of my white blood cells attacking the infection, they started attacking my healthy cells. Meaning that my immune system, the part of me that is supposed to shield and defend me from infection and further harm was attacking my ear, lymph nodes and my brain, causing all of the symptoms I have been dealing with. And so I landed myself in hospital…
Let me tell you lying in a hospital bed is one hell of a wake up call! As I laid there I started to grasp the seriousness of the situation. This was no cold or sore throat. I had a whole host of autoimmune conditions. This was serious. I was physically, emotionally and spiritually at rock bottom and I need a break. I thought to myself how the heck did I get here. My ‘Ah-Ha’ moment; I realised my body had been giving me many many warning signs for quite some years. Although I heard them, I wasn’t really listening and my taking action on these warning signs was sporadic at best.
I’m a Pisces and if you know anything about horoscopes that means I am highly emotional and sensitive, oh and I am always in my head. When I get down, I can get really down. It can feel like the hole is so deep that I can’t possibly dig myself out.
I’ve been there, so believe me when I say I understand. I’m not saying it’s going to be easy by any means. But if you want to, I promise you can dig yourself out of that hole. With time, patience, gentleness and a whole-lotta self love.
Don’t wait until you hit rock bottom to make changes in your life. No one is invincible. Letme tell you I really thought I was. Don’t wait until you wind up in hospital to make yourself a priority and look after your Mind, Body and Spirit.
I haven’t always wanted to be a life coach, in fact I said from the age of 7 years old that I wanted to become a lawyer and after completing a law degree, that’s exactly what I did. I have a beautiful Mum who is a psychic medium, so I have always had a connection to my spirituality. But it wasn’t until Louise Hay’s book landed in my lap that I really opened up to it and accepted the fact that I had a bigger purpose.
I realised that there were so many young women out there facing the same struggles and demons as I have and I was sure that they too must feel alone and misunderstood as I did. I felt driven to help other young women facing the same struggles I had. Once I realised this, I was on a mission to make a difference to the lives of these women.
This passion has driven me to:
- Become a qualified life coach with the Beautiful You Coaching Academy
- Graduate from Gabby Bernstein’s Spirit Junkie Masterclass
- Become a Certified Angel Card Reader™ with Doreen Virtue
I am passionate about supporting women to step into their authentic truth and start to love themselves again. I know first hand that once they do this that life won’t be so much of a struggle and they will find flow and grace in their lives.
I know what it is like to feel alone and misunderstood and I want all women to know they are not alone.
I coach women because I see happier and more confident women emerge at the end of a coaching series. They have learnt to trust themselves and their intuition. As a result their lives flow rather than being a constant struggle. They know what to do when they find themselves in the darkness to get themselves back home and into the light. They love themselves and make peace, love and light a priority in their lives.
If you’d like to create more peace, love and light in your life – stayed tuned for how we can work together!
