Spiritual Counselor, Author & Coach
I am in love with life now, but it wasn’t always this way. I felt like the “Ugly Duckling” as a kid and very alone most of my life, except for my experience as a mother (that’s me and my baby below). I yearned for love but felt trapped in my relationships, so I spent years working on myself to find emotional freedom and make sense of a world I didn’t resonate with.
Yol Swan and baby daughterThe dissolution of my 13-year marriage was a painful yet crucial turning point, because that grieving process brought up cosmic memories of the wounded Feminine on the planet, along with the pieces I needed to put together to finally “hatch” and start truly embracing and loving life.
It was time to resolve the persistent angst and pain of being an Indigo adult, and help the Indigo and similar feminine souls that came seeking my guidance do the same.
Through my intuitive gifts and over 28 years of experience exploring the mind, psychology and spirituality, I developed an effective system of self-exploration and energy management to help YOU let go of what holds you back and create an abundant life or business you LOVE, in alignment with your soul!
A Little Bit of History…
Yol Swan as a kidI perceive life as energy and believe that both your success and how much you enjoy life rely on how consciously you manage your vibrational energy—that is, how in tune or in sync you are with your soul.
I grew up surrounded by the Shamanic culture and rituals of Mexico, and was able to sense energies, spirits, and entities around me from a young age. I could see through people and knew what they were feeling, and was able to perceive past lives, including many of my own. I also sensed when the energy was out of balance and would unconsciously compensate for it.
Although my healing journey started as a kid, pondering upon the meaning of life and rebelling against the limiting religious views of my culture, it really took off when I dove into seven years of intense counseling (in the form of psychoanalysis) and then into spirituality. At some point I decided to go on a 3-year “personal retreat” in almost complete isolation; it was then that I was touched by the Divine for the very first time. It was my awakening.
I had mystical experiences and unusual encounters with non-physical beings, as well as casual meetings with people who helped me better understand the nature of all that was unfolding before me. These included metaphysical teachers and traditional “curanderos” (shamanic healers). I began to comprehend the nature of the mind, how energy works, and how Consciousness weaves all life and human experience. Needless to say, this changed me completely and forever.
But it was just the beginning of a lifelong search for a deeper understanding of the higher reality I longed for…
My Buddhist and Hindu Spiritual Background
Yol Swan being inititiated as a Buddhist nun by Ajhan Tong SirimangaloI’ve met several enlightened teachers, both from the Buddhist and Hindu traditions, and I am deeply grateful for their continuous guidance. I first experienced Theravada Buddhism with master Ajahn Tong Sirimangalo, a highly revered monk from Thailand, who initiated me as a nun during a 45-day Vipassana retreat.
I started understanding what the ego-mind was about right then and there, when I had to shave my head and eyebrows (yikes!) and spent the whole day practicing mindfulness and meditation (yep, that’s me on the photo, with no facial hair, right after my initiation).
I realized that the monastic life was not for me, but traveled to Thailand for another retreat and to meet other teachers from my lineage. From Thailand I jumped to India for the first time and knew that my path was about to change: India felt like home.
Yol Swan being fed by Sri Anandi Ma on her birthdaySoon after I got back, I was initiated by Sri Anandi Ma, an enlightened saint and the spiritual heir of Kundalini Maha Yoga master Sri Dhyanyogi Madhusudandasji. I immersed myself in their spiritual teachings, techniques, and rituals for over 12 years (in the picture she’s feeding me cake for my birthday).
I had been attracted to the culture of India since childhood, so the Hindu style fit my nature easily, and the mantras and practices that I was initiated with continue to be a treasured aspect of my daily spiritual discipline.
Yol Swan with Baba Hari Das at his orphanage in IndiaI’ve also been blessed by other spiritual teachers and saints over the years, both in the body and in non-physical form (you can see me here with my beloved Baba Hari Dass at his ashram/orphanage in India).
Yet as life challenged me in many ways, I became less reliant on the external form of teachers or spiritual groups and more intensely focused on my self-exploration and self-inquiry, while also furthering my studies of yoga philosophy, Vedanta, and metaphysical sciences.
Channeling the Energy and Wisdom of Non-Physical Guides
When my mother was dying, I intuitively used some of the spiritual tools I had learned over the years, and realized I had the ability to connect with her on a soul level. As I intensified my practices, I became a clear channel of energy, guided by non-physical beings, and removed all her energetic blocks, fears, attachments, and regrets. I helped her become emotionally free, so she could die in absolute peace. I can help you achieve the same emotional freedom, so you live an empowering and fulfilling life!
To quote an astrologer while looking at my natal chart, I have “a natural broadband connection to higher dimensions.” So I can connect with you on a soul level and channel healing energy and higher wisdom while I coach or teach, to increase your intuition and insight, and speed up your healing process for self-growth.
