Meet Keirstin Proud
I have been on a quest for truth and love from a very young age. My talents and gifts took me on many paths in life. However, one thing never changed, my passion to be my truest self. With many years of depression, anxiety and waking from an attempted suicide, it brought me to many years of deep inner exploration, different healing modalities & spiritual practices, and the eagerness to transform my life. And now, I am here to share my knowledge with you.
After spending several of my adult years in theatre and then the business world, I became passionate about discovering my life’s purpose and embarked on a zealous journey of healing and discovery. In addition to my personal meditation practice, I started my voyage of intense training in 2007 where I received an attunement of Usui Reiki from a deep meditation. In 2012, I started studying different modalities and techniques with the Modern Mystery School. In 2015, I had my daughter and my life was flipped upside down. This journey brought me back to my roots in Florida. And every day I am learning and discovering new knowledge and tools for empowerment.
I am a Mother, Mystic, Intuitive Spiritual Coach & Guide, Hypnotherapy Practitioner, Passionate Visionary, Life Activation Practitioner, Soul Realignment Practitioner, Jikiden Reiki Practitioner, Psychic Medium, Empathic Energy Healer, Children/Adult Meditation Facilitator, 2nd Step Initiate in the lineage of King Solomon and a graduate of Universal Kabbalah. I also hold a BA in Visual and Performing Arts from the University of South Florida.
Transformation in a Dark Place...
“It seems that for as long as I can remember, I was searching for something that could not be found. I was raised by an extremely violent father and an alcoholic and neglectful mother. The scars of my early childhood remained throughout my life. By the time I reached my early twenties, I felt an untamable urge to want to be successful, yet every time I achieved a goal that I thought was going to make me content I felt an even greater sense of hollowness. For instance, I earned my undergraduate degree in 1996 and it was not enough, so I then completed my first graduate degree within one year. I then went on to complete my MBA –all in a quest for a better career. Over the next ten years of my career, I went from being an accounting assistant to a CFO of a multimillion dollar company.
To many, I would appear to have the world in my hands. I was married to a great woman, had a child who is so fantastic, owned several properties, cars, money in the bank and no debt. However, it was never enough. I was never happy with myself so the achievements held no value and the emptiness inside grew more and more unbearable every year. I lost all sense of what life was truly about. My subsequent actions led me to have troubles with the law and I ended up incarcerated, divorced and with a strained relationship with my child. When you are incarcerated, you can no longer run from your inner demons–especially when you are spending twenty hours a day locked up in a cell. I knew that I needed to change my life, my values, and my priorities because I was unable to achieve true happiness. I set out on a road that has been painful at times, especially as I emotionally and spiritually started to grow, but I am growing happier and healthier spiritually, emotionally and mentally.
The metamorphosis I feel is similar to that of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. For almost ten months I have been working with Keirstin, whom I considered a God sent a gift and a great friend. Together we have worked on healing the profound scars from my life and seeking the direction of a light path. What is most extraordinary is the environment in which I have been able to heal–in jail. While I still have a long way to go, I have already made so much progress that the changes are prodigious. The way I feel about working with Keirstin and the progress I have made can best be summed up by a line in George MacDonald’s book Lilith, “Out of my dark self, into the light of my consciousness.” I have more hope now for my life than I have ever had, and I owe a great deal of the progress I have made to Keirstin’s help.”
