Hello, Welcome! I’m Lexie – Founder of Holistic Havens + Mindful Designer.
This is Holistic Havens’ first-ever blog post, so thank you for stopping by. Read on for the story of how Holistic Havens came to be, the services offered, and the future ahead. Your support means the world to me!
My background in interiors and organization is a bit more unconventional. It was not a profession that I chose early on, despite my lifelong obsession with tidiness or my ever-changing desire to rearrange the furniture in all the places I’ve lived. No, I have one of those linear stories – graduate college, get a Master’s Degree, and enter the corporate workforce.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with this timeline. In fact, I’ve learned so much along the way and nurtured a beautiful family in the process. Often times, though, when we ignore something deep inside – for example, living and expressing our passion – our bodies react. For me, this manifested into a health crisis that directly impacted my wellbeing and my state of mind. But, that story is for another day. This is about the beautiful business that was birthed as a result of some deep inner work that I did, and still do – daily
See, I asked myself for years, “What is my life’s purpose?” This question nags at some more than others, and boy did it nag at me. I have always felt this strong urge to help others, nurture, teach, and express myself creatively, but I never knew how to do this in a way that felt right for me. When I realized, though (after years of mindfulness work), that my “self-worth” was not defined by the business I created, the money I made, or the materials I owned, the Universe presented me with a purpose – Holistic Havens.
Holistic Havens is an expression of my purpose – to help people create spaces that uplift them physically, mentally, and spiritually. Think of me as a yoga instructor for your home, or reiki healer, therapist, mindfulness coach, etc. It’s simple really… because if our homes can cause us stress then they can definitely do the opposite. In fact, a lot of us experienced these feelings during the recent pandemic, as we spent more time at home than ever before.
For me, holistic wellness is – and always has been – one of my primary drivers through life. I’ve seen incredible results from visiting holistic doctors, having a consistent yoga practice, and practicing mindfulness. I wholeheartedly believe that our mindset and actions can change our realities, and that the environment we live in can directly impact or mindset and actions. Growing up, my mother was a perfect example of this for me – as she beat cancer again and again for over a decade by using the power of her thoughts, trying different holistic remedies, and even implementing Feng Shui adjustments in our home.
This purpose carries so much meaning for me and, as a result, I know that together we can create incredible results. Through my business, I now share solutions to problems and emotions – both mundane and transcendental – that left me feeling unsteady throughout my adolescence, and even my adult life. As someone who has moved over 20 times in my life, and traveled from one parent’s home to another every Sunday until I was 18 years old, I understand how important it is to have a home that feels supportive and stable. As a homemaker and mother of two, I understand the difficulty (and joys!) – very deeply – of not only maintaining a home, but making it a home for everyone in the family. As someone who has been responsible for everything that follows losing a loved one, I understand how to empathetically navigate the journey and its many facets. And, lastly, as someone who has faced life-changing health concerns, I’ve learned how to edit my lifestyle and my home into one that is healthier, happier, and more harmonious.
So what does this mean for you? It means it all possible, and that I’m here to help. Whether your challenges come from a place of clutter and disorganization in your home, or from a more intuitive feeling that something is missing or off, I’m here. And, I thank you for being here too.
For any holistic design project, you’ll be receiving more than furnishings and decor. I’ll take a look at the health of your home and how it is impacting your overall mind, body, and spirit. Here are some of the techniques I will use to lift the energy of your home.
Feng Shui Adjustments
Whether you’re in need of tidying up a room or two, or a complete organizational overhaul of a space, I’m here to assist you with the organizing and optimizing of your home. And, we’ll do it in a way that helps you function – and feel – at your best. Here are some of the areas where I can help you get organized.
If an in-person consultation is not possible because you’re out-of-state, or because you’re uncomfortable inviting a new person into your home during these uncertain times, please know that virtual consultations are available and just as effective!
Now that we’ve established what I do and why I do it, let’s discuss how the process works.
During this call we will go over the goals for your project and identify functional and holistic solutions that will bring you peace and harmony in your space. This is a free 30 minute consultation to discuss your needs and see if we are the right fit for each other. To schedule your free chat, visit Calendly/HolisticHavens.
If you’re doing an in-person project with me, this is when I will come to your space for measurements and to discuss the framework for your project in more detail. For virtual consultations, this is a Zoom meeting where you will be asked to provide detailed measurements and supporting information for the project.
It’s time to take a sneak peek at your holistic and organizational design solution. We’ll cover everything from the plan on project day to the furnishings and decor.
It’s time to turn your space into the Holistic Haven you’ve been dreaming about. Whether we are working as a team, or you want it to be a surprise reveal, this is when we get it done. *Please note that budgets, goals, and the number of days to complete the design will vary based on the project itself.
Thank you – The fact that you stopped by to listen to my story and entertain my passions means so much to me… it truly does. So, for those ready to follow along, stay tuned to see all of the exciting things I have planned for Holistic Havens, including workshops, courses, decor, and more.
