Be Well With NIKKI
The road back to self is a lifelong journey. And that is the journey Nicole Batiste has been on for many years, only to emerge as a Global Energy Healer & Inner Empowerment Coach. Today, she is a Certified SRT Practitioner, Certified Holistic Health Coach, Certified Functional Medicine Health Coach, Certified Life Coach, Certified HeartMath™ Practitioner, Certified Draw Your Future™ Consultant, and the Founder of her coaching platform – ‘Be Well With NIKKI’. In addition, she is a #1 best-selling Author, published Poet, and short story Writer.
Speaking about the passion that drives her, she says, “What drives me is journeying with clients as we explore the ways of enjoying this life as they live it, rather than waiting for retirement or the perfect moment in time. One of the surest ways to do that is discovering their unique design so they can be all of who they are and ensure they surround themselves with people who don’t try to change them. Self-acceptance, compassion, trust, and love are a few values that we strengthen together to achieve that.”
A significant part of Nicole’s work is centered around early childhood. She tells us that there comes a time in our lives when some of us look up and wonder how we got where we are. Through some Introspective work, you realize that a large part of who you are came from early childhood and the person in the mirror may or may not be your true self. At that point, if one chooses, the journey back to self begins.
“I believe the paths we have taken were set that way as part of our journey back home. If you find yourself wishing for a different past or present, you miss the gifts and/or lessons put along that path. Create a practice of self-kindness and choose the road that supports your growth. Always remember, you only know what you know when you know it, so judging the person you were yesterday for not knowing what you know today, is a wasted use of your life minutes.(Thanks Kim)”
This wisdom became the foundation behind Nicole’s US based, global platform for holistic healing – Be Well with NIKKI (Notice, Introspection, Knowledge, Kindness, Improvement). Established more than a decade ago in 2010, Be Well with NIKKI uses powerful techniques combining science and woo-woo to help individuals transcend limiting beliefs to be more and achieve more.
“We believe that everyone deserves to be who they are and thrive in that. To do so requires clearing out subconscious programs, transcending the traumas, and learning to be unapologetic for who you are. Being born means you are worthy, unfortunately, that is a foreign concept for so many, as it was for me. Be Well with NIKKI gets energized by the opportunity to facilitate the transformation of every person that has the opportunity to work with us as we delve into their unique human design. We know the work we do together goes beyond our client.”
To see individuals transform themselves to their very best versions inspires Nicole day-on-day. “Guiding clients back to who they are without the mask, seeing how they show up differently, and having the privilege of watching them step into, stand in and walk in their own light, is why I show up for them everyday!”
Of course, there are challenges along the way when building a practice. In Nicole’s case, challenges in the business journey were the typical ones most face when they are the first or only one in their family or circle to start and run a business. Others included – time away from family and friends, as well as the learning curve with selling, marketing, business financials, etc. There was also the added challenge of working full-time while creating a service that is very client-centered, as that limits the number of people you can work with at one time.
Yet, with grit and determination, Nicole emerged triumphant. Does she consider herself a part of the rat race today? “Not at all and I believe if anyone feels they are in a rat race, they are doing something that is not in alignment with who they are. That’s not to say there aren’t moments of frustration or exhaustion, however, if dread of going to work or showing up in any way keeps you in bed a little too long in the mornings, then there may need to be some shifts or a complete change.”
A successful international coach, we end by asking Nicole what, according to her, is great leadership. She answers: “Leadership is the ability to see people’s potential and help them see it too. I believe life is more rewarding and fulfilling when you’re seen and recognized for the value you add to the team, organization, family, or group. When people allow you to be and treat you to your potential rather than who you are right now, that is the environment for constant personal growth.”
