Welcome to Episode 21 of Intuitive Queens podcast from your Intuition Queen.
My name is Mara and I have created this podcast to inspire you with the amazing stories of my guests. They talk about how they overcame fears, limiting beliefs, tragedies and obstacles and managed to find their purpose following their intuition.
My hope is that you will resonate with one or all of them and their story will inspire you to take-action to change your life, and finally go after your dreams.
In this episode I am Interviewing Rachel Onojafe, the founder of wellness platform The Trove, 'where the mystical meets modern wellness' & Life Purpose and Business Coach.
Rachel talks to us about her life and early stages of life as a student in Norther California and how she didn’t feel she fit in the classical “blond, fit and popular” stereotype that was very much a reality when she lived there.
Her feeling of inadequacy together with being bullied made her focus on what was the typical idea of success: good school, good job and making a lot of money.
She dove into that but, something inside of her was more interested in the exploration of new avenues and particularly, new countries, like Europe.
That’s how she ended up in London and realised the diversity in cultures, body types, way of thinking and being.
She had found her place and eventually she moved to London.
After years of operating with her masculine energy, being successful in her job and adapting the Success Formula: work hard, make money and don’t be too emotional, don’t be weak.. she realised something was wrong. She wasn’t happy.
That’s how she slowly started getting interested in a variety of topics but, what changed her understanding of herself was taking a course called Moon Logic. The discovery was to understand that women, as the moon, have phases, thanks also to the menstrual cycle that mirrors it, and that we have different set of emotions and feelings that change every day and that’s ok because it’s normal!
This was the starting point of a spiritual quest that brought her to become extremely interested in astrology and then the meaning of numbers.
Rachel slowly realised the interconnection between those practices and us, human beings.
The biggest realisations for Rachel was understanding that she wasn’t trusting herself and she was looking for external validation, which made her a people pleaser.
This was a pattern that she adopted when she was younger, to survive her environment.
As an astrology expert we talked about the moon, Saturn return and how those planetary movements can affect us in various areas of our lives at different times.
We talked about astrology, menstrual cycle, body acceptance and body variety, emotional and mental health and life purpose.
As Rachel went deeper in her search, she then realised it was time to make a career out of those passions that were exciting her and helping her to become more herself.
That’s how she used her professional skills as a consultant and a lot of post it notes, to figure out what she could do that she loved and turn it into a new profession.
That’s how The Trove came about. She created a platform that allows wellness entrepreneurs to expand, grown and connect because she wished there was one for her then.
From the initial idea, The Trove evolved and it’s now a platform where you can take courses, find events where Rachel helps “wellness explorer” - as she likes calling her audience – to try different things and figure out how to get support in their healing journey, especially if you are at the beginning of your discovery or if you have just stepped into the new journey and you are still new.
Rachel is also a Life Purpose and Business Coach and helps people to find their bigger purpose and work with that especially is you are interested in starting your own business.
