My name is Ashley Smith of Into the Heart, and it is my truest desire to connect with others in ways that are deep, meaningful and authentic as well as in ways that honor and serve all beings.
I am humbled that you are here and honored to journey together with you on this sacred path!
My life has been a series of sweet synchronicities guided by Spirit. Amazing manifestations that could only, after a while, make me tilt my head to the sky and laugh.
I have always been a seeker, on a mission to awaken to my own truth and potential, to connect deeply with the greater mysteries of this life- with the Divine.
My life, like so many of our lives, has been one of great trauma and pain, which initially started me on a very self-destructive path of all sorts of addictions and unhealthy coping patterns.
In 2012 I was able to surrender to God(dess) and was given a clarity, a profound understanding that I had been living my life in FEAR. I was able to see that I had no idea who I was, or how to Love myself.
Shortly after having awakened to this truth, I made a pact with myself- that no matter what, I was going to learn to love myself and truly give myself the permission I needed to grow into the empowered woman I knew I was. I was on a mission to undo and walk past the fears that had been holding me back.
“I’ve participated in many ceremonies, rituals and meditation classes over the past 10 years. Ashley’s tea ceremony is something to behold and something everyone should try at least once! The different levels of personal observation of my mind and body I experienced in this journey was unlike anything else I’ve ever experienced. If you are here on this page, something bigger than you is calling, and you owe it to yourself to answer :)”
