Supporting a friend through their spiritual awakening takes a special, open, and accepting bond. I’m so lucky to have shared this bond with my best friend, Nicola Smith, who supported me through my spiritual awakening – and I supported her through hers!

About Supporting Your Best Friend Through A Spiritual Awakening
Going through a spiritual transformation on your own can be a challenge. I was so lucky to have my best friend, Nicola Smith, to support me on this path. And, as you’ll see throughout this episode, my awakening led Nicola to have one of her own!
When my awakening first started, Nicola was my sounding board. She didn’t understand everything that I was going through, but she stood there next to me, supporting me with every step I took. This support was absolutely invaluable and, honestly, is one of the most important things you can do if one of your friends is experiencing something like this, too.
Growing up, Nicola and I shared so many moments of manifestation together, even though at the time we didn’t know that’s what we were doing. But it was these moments that brought so much honesty and closeness to our friendship. It’s essential that you have a friend you can talk about this stuff with – so if you don’t have one already, ask the Universe to send you one!
Nicola shares with us how owning her own successful makeup business and brand led her into a constant state of hustle and grind. She explains how busy she was, all the time, and how this dimmed her light. When she realised she could step back, reevaluate her life, and spend time loving herself, her life opened up around her.
Nicola spent so much time being busy all the time, she didn’t even realise that she was holding herself back from stepping into her own power. This was a totally fear-based mindset and one that we’ve worked through together. Nicola has now learned how to choose her destiny and outcome, and she tells you the trick to that in this episode.
Our spiritual awakenings always look so different, they’re so personal and unique! Nicola learned to change her struggles into her success.
While yes, the pandemic and quarantine is a very real and very scary situation we’re in, Nicola decided not to let it hinder her business. She learned to adapt and now is 100% standing in her truth, helping women feel beautiful and powerful every single day.
Finally, Nicola shares what the most important things you can do are:
- Prioritise yourself
- Meditate & journal
- Hold space for anyone who needs to be heard

“I’ve come to the conclusion of just thinking that every single person has their own thing that they believe in. Everyone’s different. Some people don’t believe in God but they’ll believe that someone is with them.” [25:15]
“Four or five years ago, if I’d gotten a troll on social media, I’d have been on the floor devastated that someone’s called me a name. Whereas I’ve had to understand my own worth and learn about me and understand who I was before I could put myself out there to the world. To me, it’s just amazing now, because I didn’t ever realise that’s what I was scared of. I was scared of falling in love with myself.” [31:14]
“A lot of people talk about what’s going on as if it’s a negative thing whereas, I’ve always been quite an optimistic person where I think, ‘if that’s not working, how can I make it work?’ If anyone’s listening, thinking, ‘well, I wonder what my thing is?’ You need to just think about what it is that actually makes you happy?” [42:11]
“The pain that people are going through is the thing that’s going to be your strength in the future. That is exactly what it is.” [53:25]
