Life & Work with Brittany Wilson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittany Wilson.

Hi Brittany, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
My life changed dramatically in 2018. It was the beginning of my spiritual journey.

I feel that is when I became more intentional about what I wanted my life to look like and what I wanted to do with my life. At the time, I was working at Morgan Stanley, and I was very unhappy.

So, I started to unveil my truest self and learn about the things that would make me happy again. Healing and writing were two of the most important things that I became passionate about.

I created a blog called the Future of this Female in 2018. With the blog, I was able to share some parts of my journey and share some of the poetry that I wrote with others. That same year, I learned about Reiki and after my first session, I knew that I wanted to become a practitioner.

I got certified as a practitioner later that year and in 2019, I received my Reiki Master certification.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It hasn’t been smooth at all. The process of healing and unlearning is very dark.

The process of creating can also be a rollercoaster. In 2019, I moved to Los Angeles, and I was fighting through bouts of depression and writer’s block. I wanted to start my book then, but I couldn’t push through what I was battling mentally to create. In a place that was considered the land of opportunities, I was broke and very overwhelmed.

I left Los Angeles and returned to Baltimore that same year. When I returned it was a very humbling experience because I only had enough money to drive back across the country.

I was staying in my cousin’s basement, sleeping on an air mattress with my son so that I could start over again and get back on my feet. From the moment, I returned to Baltimore, I knew that I had to overcome that rough patch and that is what motivated me to start writing again and eventually create Maia and the Magical Acorns.

The self-publishing process though was also very challenging because there are many expenses associated with publishing a book without the backing of a publisher. You must do the research and marketing to ensure the success of your book.

Since it was my first time, there were many things that I didn’t know and learned to help me going forward. Ingram Spark is a great option for anyone interested in self-publishing their book.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I’m a Reiki Master, Author, Herbalist, and Gardener. I love plants, nature, and just the earth in general. I try to connect my love for the earth and my love for healing in my work. I am mostly known for Energy Healing.

I create a safe space for generational healing and for millennials to be vulnerable and open about healing and evolving their energetic field. I believe that is what sets me apart from others.

I am literally here to inspire and assist others on their healing journeys. I have a Facebook Group called Millennials Healing and Building that I created because I wanted to use the group to create a community surrounding my mission in the healing space.

I self-published my first children’s book this year titled Maia and the Magical Acorns. The book was another extension of my creative inner child that I use to hide from the world. Now, I am comfortable outwardly sharing my stories with others and using my voice.

I wrote this story to inspire and encourage people, especially those living in the inner city, to do something positive with their magic no matter the environment or the circumstances. I didn’t think I could write or publish a book at first, but I saw it to completion, and I am very happy about that.

Can you talk to us a bit about the role of luck?
I believe that everything aligns the way in which it is supposed to. In hindsight, the things we stress about are always preparing us for something bigger. I’ve been grateful enough to have Reiki clients that love my services enough to recommend me to others.

So sometimes my clients come strictly from word of mouth, and I don’t always have to play the social media game. There are also times in which I’ll go some time without a client. This is the same with my children’s book. I’ve had support for Maia and the Magical Acorns that I wasn’t expecting at all.

But I have also been turned down for opportunities that could help expand my book to a broader audience, but instead of giving up, I know that I must just go with the flow.
