Moano’s Journey to His True Self
About the Book
Moano’s constant chatter in his mind quiets when he is skateboarding at the skate park. His time at the skate park is very sacred to him. When Moano can’t go to the skate park, he uses his tools of meditation, prayer, and surrender to center with his true self. He remembers who he truly is and allows that oneness to flow and express through him.
About the Author
Hello! My name is Dr. Colleen Vaillancourt, DC. I was born and raised in Southern Ontario, Canada. I have been practicing Chiropractic in Golden, Colorado for 12 years. I am also a Reiki Master and I have been doing Reiki for over 9 years. I have an incredible, kind, bright and loving 6-year-old little girl, Elizabeth who inspires me every day on my spiritual transformation. I have a sweet 13-year-old cat, Zion who always keeps me accountable for my time, a protective 9-year-old dog, Adirondacks who continuously reminds me of unconditional love and a dwarf hamster, Olive who reminds me daily - All is one. I started my spiritual transformation when I was around 15 years old. I had the opportunity to be exposed to Louise Hay, Oprah Winfrey, Napoleon Hill, Tony Robbins, Candace Pert and Abraham - Jerry & Ester Hicks. I had times from that point when I drifted back and forth from my spiritual transformation, but I was always drawn back to that feeling inside of me that made me feel there is more to life. I lost my father at the age of 18 and I left home soon after that. That point in my life was a major turning point for me in lifestyle habits. I started University studying Human Kinetics at the age of 19. I had an incredible Nutrition professor that inspired me to think about the food I was consuming and learn about the food industry. I had an amazing Neurology professor who opened my mind to the complexity and mysteries of our central nervous system. I became the President of the Human Kinetics Council, Chairperson to our Human Kinetics Symposium and a Human Kinetics mentor. I trained how to be a personal trainer and worked as a fitness room supervisor. However, I knew there was more to it all. I had a few experiences in my teens and early twenties that kept pulling me back to my spiritual path. I have learned that I am sensitive to others energy, which used to make certain social engagements draining or uncomfortable. I dealt with issues throughout my life such as: self-worth, self-love, personal power, abandonment, fear of failure, forgiveness, family love, security, speaking my truth, trusting my gut instincts and holding faith in the whole process. While I was in Chiropractic College I was introduced to other alternative methods of care for the human mind, body and spirit. I learned about applied kinesiology, acupuncture, acupressure, homeopathic remedies, essential oils, Reiki, and my nutrition education grew. After a couple years in practice, I realized how essential the state of the mind (thoughts) was for the healing and health of the human body. That is when I decided to get trained to be a Reiki Master. That is when my journey deepened to commit to my own spiritual transformation, and to be of service to others for theirs. Over the years, I have experienced inspirations to write different books, but the most powerful inspiration was to write children’s books and teach a positive belief system foundation. I have read hundreds and hundreds of children’s books since my daughter was born. I am honored to support other families start a new dialogue and provide tools on how to navigate more successfully in the physical world while staying connected to the spiritual world.
