Hi. I’m Jewels. Welcome to Shine Your Light


I created this website to help you travel from a place of Stress to Success. For the past 10 years, I have traveled far and wide and studied with yoga masters, health gurus and more. Here I share my best learned spiritual and practical tools.

So come inside and take a ride on a journey across the globe to the core of your soul. I may be on a Soul-O journey around the world, but I know who you are. I was there! As a former Manhattan Advertising Executive, I worked for the biggest radio groups in the world: CBS Radio, Clear Channel Radio, XM/Sirius Satellite Radio, Z-100 and more. I was a young woman, barely 30 years old and responsible for acquiring and negotiated million dollar deals. I had a great career, but it did not come without a huge amount of pressure. And I did it for more than a decade. Trust me, I know first hand about stress, anxiety and getting lost in the in what I call, the matrix.

 

THE ILLUSION 

On the outside, my life was amazing. I was living in Manhattan, had a prestigious corporate career and had loads of friends. Yet on the inside I was crumbling. My stress levels were at a maximum. I was eating poorly, not exercising and on a slew of medications. Medication for anxiety, depression, sleep, stomach issues, migraines and antibiotics because I was always getting sick. 

I talk about my journey in this interview…

TAKING CONTROL

I knew I had to take control of my own health and wellbeing. Western medicine and conventions had failed me. If anything, I was getting worse. My first step was yoga. I loved it so much that I immediately became certified to teach. By day I was a corporate warrior and by night, I was teaching my advertising clients how to unleash their inner spiritual warrior. I was starting to see the light.

Then, during the absolute height of my career, my beloved father, who had been valiantly fighting his battle with ALS, a terminally ill and debilitating disease, lost the fight and his life. I thought I hit my rock bottom. But there was more to come. A year later the market crashed, we went into an economic meltdown. The company I was working for laid off 2500 and I was one of them. I was lost and alone. My mother had moved back to her home in Greece, dad was gone now and I had no job and a huge mortgage to pay with no means of income. On top of that my beloved cat of 19 years and chocolate labrador retriever both died. I was in a relationship that was not working. I didn’t know where to turn. 

CAN YOU SAY DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL???

I struggled a lot over the next two years. No longer able to afford my life in Manhattan, I rented out my apartment and took a soul journey to India and Nepal. With nothing but a backpack, I spent the next year reaching into my heart and asked divine source for answers. And like a phoenix rising, I rose through the ashes … TRANSFORMATION!

In this transformation, I heard the call to serve. To share the tools that helped me to live STRESS FREE!  I share the tools I learned in my blog, at yoga retreats and workshops world-wide, on TV and Radio shows and via private coaching via Skype and one on one session.
