What if you could melt away all your blocks AND manifest every desire you have?

leap

I’m Jia Ni, an intuitive + coach. Ever since I could remember, I was an intuitive, extremely sensitive with energy. I always knew what people were meant to be doing in order to fulfil their life purpose. I could also ‘see’ what was energetically blocking people, what was holding them back, and where they were unaligned and leaking.

Yearning to live a abundant, soulful, purpose-driven life?

Feeling lost, stuckness and frustration that life (and money) isn’t flowing gracefully & easily?

Ready to step up and have your best ever life & health this year?

Today, I work with heart-centered women entrepreneurs (& aspiring entrepreneurs) to …

  • Gain clarity and uncertainty on your life mission and purpose
  • Find the soul abundance spot where passion meets the money
  • Plug up your energetic leaks so that you can manifest all your desires
  • Raise your vibrations to achieve wellness, love, abundance
  • Clear the unconscious blocks that are holding you back

My guess is you’re struggling right now.

You’re experiencing one or more of the symptoms below:

  • Feel like you’re not living your full potential
  • Not clear of your true purpose
  • Unconfident and unsure of your unique gifts and message
  • Feeling scattered and disorganized
  • Unaligned with your higher self
  • Not manifesting at your peak ability
  • Frustrated and blocked in your certain aspects and areas of your life

Challenge Yourself to Leap Forward

Posted on: December 4, 2012 Category: Health & Wellness/ Jia Ni Loves

Happy December!

Can you feel the festive energy in the air?

I’m feeling nostalgic as the year draws to a close… In the beginning of 2012, I told myself (and prayed.. countless times): “2011 pretty much ended with everything falling apart. In 2012, everything will be coming back together and it will all make sense once more!”

And it did. It’s been an amazing year.

After meditation one day, I heard myself saying “It’s the last month of 2012. I’m going to milk it more, expand more, and commit to growth, fearlessness, and learning more before we go into 2013!”

Here’s how I’ve been committing to learning and growing.

And how I’ve been attempting to challenge myself!

A Pre Wrap Up Party for 2012

A Daily December Challenge : Yoga Everyday

I’ve embarked on a really fun yoga a day challenge in the name of growth and stretching my limits and comfort zone.

I’ve seen these challenges on Instagram for the past few months and I finally decided this is the month to take my practice up a notch and attempt asanas and poses I’ve never tried out before. So far, so fun!

I will be giving these my best shot! Huzzah! (Follow my journey + cheer me on for my Can-Do Attitude here!)

5 Books This Month Challenge!

High recommend this: A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle

I’m blessed to have be brought up in a family who places a high value on education. I’m extremely hugely grateful to my parents in this area.

We didn’t get too many holidays abroad, or cool gadgets and gizmos growing up. (However, one thing we had was education.) We’d sit in bookstores for hours and not even realize time fly by. I’ll also never forget my mom saying “Books are an investment not an expense.” Love.

So far I’ve finished reading A New Earth & The Big Leap. We’re only four days into this month so I think I’m pretty good to finish this challenge! Ha!

My favourite books used to those ‘Mr Men and Little Miss’ books (how cute are they?) And now I’m consumed by personal development and spiritual books that promise adventure, wisdom, and knowledge.

Holding Inner Peace While Dealing with Energy Shifts


I made a video for you on how to deal with the current energy shifts that we’re all experiencing. :)

Staying Vibrant : Healthy Vegivore Eats

As a health coach, I truly believe that the extent to which we can grow depends a lot on our physical capacity to allow growth. One of the best ways to expand this capacity is to feed your body well!

I discovered a super hippie and chic organic vegetarian cafe in Malaysia. It was definitely a very exciting moment of my life. Many vegetarian restaurant here sell mock meats and deep fried food which don’t jive with my food philosophy.

Not this one!! This one boasts a huge range of fresh raw goodness as well as warm cooked yummies.

Apart from that, I’ve been enjoying home-cooked deliciousness back at home and cooking up a mini storm for my family. (Lucky them!)

Dreaming & Scheming HUGE Plans for 2013

I’ve printed off my 2013 Incredible Year Planner for Biz + Life!! Get yours HERE. So magical, and I’m gonna write a bit more about this soon – how I’ve used it, what I’ve gotten from it, and how you can make your dreams come true with this baby! Till then, print it off and dive in!

I’m putting together my FIRST eCourse. It’s going to be HUGE. Super pretty, colourful, and glossy printables and amazing content coming your way!! You can expect it to contain a huge amount of fun content that you can effortlessly use to reach your goals and dreams.

Dreams a-go-go. Optimizing your life to its limitless capacity.

How to get everything you want, and then more.

I expect this to be available to YOU by the end of the year! RAH! I can’t wait to show you!

How are you challenging yourself before the end of the year? What are you going to do to propel yourself forward?

Lots of Love,

P.S. It’s all up to you. Should you choose, you can end the year with fireworks one HUGE explosive “HURRAH!”

Eating for Beautiful Skin

Posted on: November 6, 2012 Category: Health & Wellness

eating for beautiful skin

Today I wanted to talk about skin health – how you can glow from the inside out. The foundation of great skin starts from within – when you nourish yourself and have a healthy gut, it is reflected on the outside! Buildup of toxins, stress, and poor diet/lifestyle choices manifest in the forms of poor skin health such as acne, wrinkling, and dull skin.

 

What causes poor skin health?

Acne is caused when excess toxins are expelled by the body through our skin. These may be caused by Candida overgrowth, poor diet, chemicals, allergies, stress. Hormones affect how much oil our skin produces – so it can be a problem during adolescence, premenstrual week, and when we ingest it through  contraceptive pills or via hormones from animal produce.

Acne happens when hair follicles (or pores) become blocked with natural oils. When the pore is open to air, the clog appears as a blackhead. If oil is trapped below the surface of the skin, it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria – leading to pimples (skin eruptions that look red and inflamed).

Skin damage occurs as a result of oxidation, a chemical process in which unstable molecules called free radicals use electrons from healthy cells. This appears as wrinkling, discoloration or decreased elasticity. Oxidation occurs via…

Smoking : Cigarette smoke fills your body with free radicals. Every lungful sends free radicals into your blood stream, where they can cause damage in the body. Smoking impairs blood flow to skin, starving the cells of nutrition and oxygen. It also damages the underlying collagen and elastin – keeping skin from renewing.

Sunlight : Sunlight is a form of radiation. UV radiation not only causes free radical damage but also causes cells to mutate. Thus, it’s important to be sun smart and not only stay hydrated but be protected as well.

 

Eating for Beautiful Skin

ANTIOXIDANTS
Antioxidants are the best defense against free radical damage of oxidation is a diet rich in antioxidants. Certain antioxidants – vitamin C, E, selenium, and vitamin A/beta carotene – have been shown to nourish our skin.

  • Vitamin C– Involved in collagen production and protects cells from free radical damage. Vitamin C is destroyed by exposure to sunlight, so it’s important to replenish our stores by eating lots of vitamin C rich fruits and vegetables.Foods high in Vitamin C:Guava, bell peppers, brussel sprouts, strawberries, oranges, lemons, broccoli, kale, kiwi, cantaloupe, cauliflower, cabbage, mangos, grapefruits, tomatoes, raspberries, watermelon, okra, lychees, persimmonseating for beautiful skin 2
  • Vitamin E– Protects cell membranes and guard against UV radiation damage.Foods high in Vitamin E: Sunflower seeds, almonds, hazelnuts, avocado, pine nuts, flaxseeds, collard greens, swiss chard, spinach, broccoli
  • Selenium– An antioxidant mineral that helps safeguard skin from sun damage and delays aging by protecting skin quality and elasticity. Research has shown that it reduces sun damage as well.Foods high in Selenium: brazil nuts, brown rice
  • Beta carotene– Converted to vitamin A in the body. Used in the growth and repair of body tissues.Foods high in Beta carotene: Sweet potatoes, carrots, kale, butternut squash, pumpkin, mustard greens, bell peppers, cabbage, spinach, lettuce, collard greens, swiss chard, watermelon, cherries, tomatoes

ZINC 

Zinc is necessary for protecting cell membranes and helping to maintain the collagen that keeps skin firm. It also helps to heal our intestinal wall lining, which allows for efficient digestion and absorption of nutrients.

Foods high in Zinc: Pumpkin seeds, chickpeas, pine nuts, cashews, sunflower seeds, lentils, almonds, walnuts, black eyed peas, green peas

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Maintain cell membranes and keeps toxins out.  Include walnuts, flaxseeds, and if you consume meat – wild salmon or sardines.

WATER 

Flushes away toxins, keep cells well-hydrated and thus plump and full. Eat foods that are are hydrating, including : watermelons, cucumbers, and coconuts.

10 Simple Practices for Beautiful Skin

  1. If you smoke, stop.
  2. Keep your cells hydrated by drinking at least 2L of fresh water daily.
  3. Drink a green drink (juice or smoothie) daily.
  4. Exercise regularly. Move yo’ ass and get your lymph movin’!
  5. Eat foods that are high in antioxidants (mentioned above).
  6. Avoid processed and refined foods including white sugar, white rice, white bread, bagels, white flour, cookies, sodas, soft drinks and other junky food.
  7. Experiment with an elimination diet by avoiding common allergens for 4-6 weeks and notice any improvements. The two most common allergens are gluten and dairy.
  8. Nourish your gut with healthy bacteria. Take a good probiotic supplement, and add lots of fermented food such as raw sauerkraut and kimchi into your daily meals. Healthy digestive system = healthy skin!
  9. Add good fats into your diet (and on that note: stay away from trans fats a.k.a margarine, shortening, cooking sprays, corn, canola and peanut oil). Good fats include: coconuts, avocadoes, sesame, grapeseed, and olive oils.
  10. If you suspect you may have a yeast issue, go on a low-sugar alkaline diet to re-establish balance in your intestinal biota.
