We had the good fortune of connecting with Cynthia Omekam and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Cynthia, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I was raised with many of the spiritual practices I use with my clients as a normal part of my household culture and I always wanted to help others through the process of healing. So the foundation of my business began way before I even knew this would be my path. However, my career started out in the field of psychology. I received my Bachelors in Psychology in 2012 & a Masters in Forensic Psychology in 2016. After graduating with my second degree I had plans to continue my work as an intern counselor at a local correctional facility until my mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. After finding out about my moms diagnoses, I dropped everything to become her full time caregiver. And during that time I was able to dive deep into my own transformational healing & began to realize my true healing potential. Not only was I able to be of service to my mom as a healer during her fight with cancer but I was also able to heal myself through the process. I spent hours meditating & praying. So basically whenever I wasn’t serving my mom I was connecting with the divine. Many times I would receive directions in terms of providing her with what she needed or comfort to push me through. However, towards the end of my moms time here I began receiving clear downloads from the divine in terms of my next steps & that life coaching would be the way. I wrote down everything I received in detail & shared it with my mom. We manifested together, we talked about the steps to make it happen & rejoiced about what was to come. During her last few weeks here on earth my mom was able to pull me to the side & tell me how proud she was. To this day, it’s a moment I’ll never forget & will cherish forever. Unfortunately I lost her before my plans began to physically manifest. But as you can imagine with this being one of the last things we shared together, my motivation was & remains higher than ever. So I took that leap of faith & haven’t looked back since.
What should our readers know about your business?
I am a Certified Holistic Life Coach & an Accredited Spiritual Healer dedicated to supporting women as they break free from stress & anxiety and begin living more peaceful, balanced and fulfilling lifestyles. My areas of expertise include stress management, establishing inner peace, mindful living & spirituality. In addition to providing one-on-one and group coaching services online, I also offer various meditation & spiritual services to aid others on their healing journeys. Early this year, I added a bonus & launched my YouTube Channel “Zen With Cyn” where new meditations are uploaded every two months, with each meditation generating peaceful vibrations to bring your soul the comfort it needs to heal & thrive. The focus of my services is around healing the mind, body & spirit through a mixture of psychology, powerful ancestral spiritual practices & coaching tools. I use coaching to help them achieve each step needed to get to where they want to be. While the practice of mindfulness & use of powerful spiritual tools are used to guide them there successfully. Ultimately, my clients are able to achieve their desired lifestyle by doing the work necessary to ignite & nurture a powerful reconnection with their soul/authentic self. My business & services stand apart from others because I provide personally tailored support. Everyone is different, our walks are different, our challenges are different and so therefore our healing journeys are just as unique. Instead of trying to serve through the normal “cookie cutter” approach I honor my clients & their unique process by meeting them where they are and developing a plan aligned with their natural flow. I like to say that my clients get the best of both worlds: nurturing & guidance through healing, while receiving motivation & empowerment through coaching. Also, my intuitive healing gifts add that special touch that can be unmatched and most of all amplifies the value & impact of every service that I provide. I am beyond proud of my steadfast faith & resiliency because this road has not been easy, yet I have never stopped believing in my calling or vision. I know without a doubt that this is where I am supposed to be & exactly what I am supposed to be doing. The inner work & healing that I’ve completed thus far on my journey has served as major pillars of success in my business. Without these trials & transformations I wouldn’t have been able to overcome the many challenges that I’ve faced to get to where I am today. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned along the way is the importance of surrendering & trusting the process. When I first launched my business I was very much lost in the world of “I have to do it all, as fast as possible.” This caused me to change my title several times & I even created a program completely out of alignment with my vision. After putting in so much work, I was left feeling drained & defeated. That’s when I made the decision to go back to what I knew best: GOD. I stepped away, re-centered myself & began operating my business the same way that it manifested–through divine guidance. Hands down this is one of the best lessons that I’ve learned on this journey. As soon as I made that shift my business took off & clients started rolling in. This served as a powerful reminder of the importance of sticking to your walk & maintaining faith in your journey. I am so glad that I was able to learn that early on. My journey as a whole has been a major blessing and every high & low has served purposeful to my success thus far. I am blessed beyond measure to be able to walk proudly in my purpose & get paid to do so. I am super excited for all the abundance that is flowing to me, through me & around me!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I am a major homebody lol so we would definitely spend the majority of the time catching up & vibing out either at my house or wherever they are staying. Laughing, dancing, karaoke, watching movies/binge watching a series, an at home sip & paint, healing activities or whatever else speaks to our souls. I would definitely treat us to at least one spa day which would include an exfoliating body scrub, full body massage, mani/pedi & a 30 min salt cave session. I’m all about holistic luxuries so my friends already know the vibes. My client just put me on to floating spas which are super dope & is known to yield many health benefits. So that would be included in one of our days as a new adventure we could try together. COVID has changed so much but if possible, we could fit in some outside fun like shopping, laser tagging, pole dancing, going to an escape room, the autobahn indoor speedway or Top Golf. In terms of food, some places we have to visit include Salt Line, 12 Stories, Papi Cuisine, Kitchen Cray & Uncaged Chefs. As a foodie this list is just scratching the surface lol but these selections are definitely a must. Overall because I am such a “go with the flow” spirit we could do absolutely none of this & I would be satisfied lol. My focus would be around doing things that excite & interest my best friend, so if it’s completely different from my vision it’s all good. My greatest desire is merely the opportunity to enjoy some quality time with my best friend, loving up on one another & pouring into each other. There’s truly nothing better than that!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would love to dedicate my shoutout to God, my heavenly army & of course my mom because they are forever the foundation of Holistic Liberation LLC. I would love to shoutout my support system aka my “framily” who really served as my anchor through some of the darkest moments of my journey. As well as, all of my mentors & earthly healers (counselor, coaches) who helped me continue to heal and make a smooth transition into the entrepreneurial world after suffering such a heavy loss. Last but not least, thank you to all of my clients for trusting & believing in me because without them my vision would still merely be a dream in the making!
