Every week, we are incredibly blessed to feature a different woman from the health, wellness and personal development community. This is our opportunity to connect with some of the amazing women around the world as they inspire and empower. This week, we are happy to feature Tarryn Slade!
My name is Tarryn Slade, I am 27 years old and live in Brisbane Australia. I have always been a spiritually minded being but truly began my work as a Lightworker & Clairvoyant Healer in 2014 when I began my healing practice. To me their is no greater joy or passion in life than connecting & consciously living to your true, higher, authentic self and helping awaken, heal & inspire others to do the same during their time here on Earth.

PYS: The cracks are how the light gets in. Tell us how your core wounds have inspired your work.
Tarryn Slade: I suffered Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for almost 10 years and during that time I spiraled in deep depression, anxiety and fear... I even contemplated suicide on numerous occasions as I was so desperately unhappy. I felt lost, unloveable & insecure... I felt like I had no direction in life, that no one knew what I was going through, that no one really SAW me... I just wanted to feel like people cared, that my life matter, that I was of value and could be of service to the world.... I wanted someone to look at me and say "You can do this, I believe in you"... but most of all I wanted to be able to love & believe in myself.
And now that is what I offer through my work, together with the Angels & Guides, we connect and channel into the blockages, the hurts, the stagnant energy and provide messages of healing hope, of clarity and inspiration. Through my spiritual work, I am inspired to help awaken people to their higher callings and generate a conscious positive mindset of positive, loving self-nurturing & self-belief.
For we need the darkness to see the light, by lighting our own way too illuminate the paths of others. We rise in being our authentic selves. Our true soul selves.... And this inspires my work constantly.
PYS: What is your worst habit and what are you doing to improve it?
Tarryn: My worst habit is procrastinating and waiting for someone to tell me I'm worthy and it's okay, that I can do this... The old "I believe in you" that I was searching for, for 10 years, can still rear its ugly head. When this happens, I drop into self-parenting through meditation, asking my inner child what is wrong and really tuning in to see why I'm feeling this way. I then switch my thinking to positive reassurance only, soothing myself with positive self beliefs that I can do this, and removing limiting self-beliefs.
I acknowledge that resistance I feel during these times is necessary and preparing me to launch and propel forward and to acknowledge my habit of self doubt as an indication that change and wonderful new opportunities are entering my life for me to embrace.
PYS: What advice would you offer to other goddesses working to actualize their potential?
Tarryn: Find a wonderful mentor, someone whom you respect and admire, who has already actualized their potential and connect with them to help you break down the action steps you need to take on your own journey. Someone who you trust and who will be able to inspire & nurture you on your journey while still motivating you and holding you accountable.
Don't wait until you are ready, because you will never be. Just take one step at a time. Do a class, take a course, read a book, take a trip... And eventually you'll realise that each one of these was something that began setting you into motion toward actualizing your potential.
PYS: What does your daily spiritual practice look like?
Tarryn: Every morning I wake and list three things I am grateful for before I get out of bed. I eat a healthy breakfast, play with my dogs and as I get ready each day I have a positive quote stuck to my mirror that I read every day that says "Hey you, yes you. I want you to really look at yourself. Past the insecurities, past everything you think is wrong. You are beautiful. Have a beautifully blessed day xoxo".
Each day I choose to focus on the positives, if a negative thought enters my head or feeling comes over me I make a conscious effort to replace it with three positive thoughts. I practice mindfulness through my breathing and my choices in food and my actions.
Love, respect, gratitude & compassion are four majorly important components in my daily spiritual practice, in particular, self love.
Taking time out to meditate, do the things I like, replenish my energies, doing a card reading, resting, rejuvenating are high atop my list daily with spiritual practice, for through my suffering CFS I learnt first hand you are no good to help anyone if you aren't functioning okay. One of my favorite analogy's to share with people is the 'Airplane Analogy' and goes a little something like this:
When you're on an airplane taxing the runaway and the airhostess is taking you through the emergency instructions they ask you in the event on an emergency if the air masks should fall to place your own on first securely before helping others... why? Because you won't be able to help anyone if you're passed out.
So just like life, it is so important to make sure you are okay, that you are taking care of you, through Mind Body Spirit, so that your foundations are set to be of service to others.
PYS: What secrets (past or present) have kept you from living in your truth?
Tarryn: Fear of failure & vulnerability has always been something that held me back in self-love... But through recent times I have learnt to not see it as a failure, rather an opportunity to grow and I have come to realize that everyone, no matter who you are, feels vulnerable in life and its about acknowledging when you are feeling shame and vulnerability and championing these through self-love, unconditional self-love.
Self- love can mean many things, too. It's about our self-talk, keeping this positive & encouraging. It's about the foods we choose to consume, its about exercising, its about taking time out for spiritual practice be that healing, meditation, a reading... It's about being kind & gentle with yourself, patient and loving... For you are always going to be with yourself and that's a relationship that deserves love, respect, trust & nurturing.
PYS: Who inspires you?
