About the Author

My name is Dr. Colleen Vaillancourt, DC. I was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. I currently work in Golden, Colorado. I have been practicing Chiropractic in Golden, Colorado for 11 years. I am also a Reiki Master and I have practiced Reiki for over 8 years. I realized after a few years of practicing Reiki, I had started to include spiritual life coaching. I have an incredible, kind, bright and loving little girl, who inspires me every day on my spiritual journey. I have a sweet 13-year-old cat, who always keeps me accountable for my time, a protective 9-year-old dog, who continuously reminds me of unconditional love and a dwarf hamster, who reminds me daily - All is one. I started my spiritual journey when I was around 15 years old. I had the opportunity to be exposed to books written by Louise Hay, Oprah Winfrey, Napoleon Hill, Tony Robbins, Candace Bergen and Abraham - Jerry & Ester Hicks. I had times from that point when I drifted back and forth from my spiritual journey, but I was always drawn back to that feeling that there was more to learn and experience. I lost my father at the young age of 18 and I then left home soon after that. This 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 am sensitive to other people’s energy, which used to make certain social engagements draining or uncomfortable throughout my life I have worked on self-worth, self-love, personal power, abandonment, anxiety, fear of failure, forgiveness, family love, security, speaking my truth, and trusting my intuition and having faith in the Universe. While I was in chiropractic college I was introduced to alternative methods of care for the human mind, body and spirit. I learned applied kinesiology, acupuncture, acupressure, homeopathic remedies, essential oils, Reiki, and my nutrition education grew too. After a couple years in practice, I realized how essential the state of the mind (thoughts) are for the healing and health of the human body. That is when I decided to get trained to be a Reiki healer. That is when my spiritual journey deepened and service to others began. Throughout these years, I have had this feeling drawing me to write different books, but the most powerful drive is 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 bor. I would be honored to support other families begin a new dialogue and provide tools on how to navigate more successfully in the physical world while staying connected to the spiritual world.
