Meet Rachel Vasquez

Rachel’s Why: “I’d like to link arms in co-creating a mission-aligned partnership in which we bring whole wellness to our mental, physical, and spiritual beings, inspiring a world of happy, healthy, and healed humans.”

“On a Sunday afternoon, my husband and I parted in different directions, kissing each other one final goodbye. A tragic motorcycle accident left me a widow and single mother to our four amazing children. I was left broken and lost. I was completely shell-shocked. Everything was whirling around in my head. The death of my soulmate was more than I could bear; I had no idea what to do. I found myself on a spiritual journey where I learned who I was and what I was destined to do. I searched, I listened, and I found a tribe of healers, where people listened to what I needed. a community that truly understood me.

I began helping people in pain and grieving. I felt called to work with widows, those suffering the loss of their spouse or partners. These were beautiful, spirited women who wanted the same thing as I wanted: to be happy again and not pitied. Women who wanted to be valued and respected. Some of us, including myself, wish to be the mother who inspires our children. Women, all running the same marathon at different speeds and different mile markers, supporting one another without judgment. I discovered that the handbooks were wrong! There were no written rules about grief. It was then that I began to reshape my life. I thought, “I can help!” I felt the calling. Every cell in my body sparked with excitement. My whole soul’s purpose shifted; I redesigned my whole life and began to lead. So, now I serve people who are searching for their own path and who are ready to explore what comes next. I began my business, “Living Beyond Grief.” I now wake up every day helping my fellow Widows create an inspired life after loss. Serving as a guide for those searching for ways to navigate life’s “widow” challenges while inspiring possibilities dreamed of and creating new beginnings.

Living Beyond Grief focuses on helping you process those emotions and navigate towards what’s next. We take a whole integrative approach to healing and align it with your goals. In addition, our services help relieve anxiety, stress, insomnia, and depression while simultaneously tackling grief and trauma.

We work closely with our clients to come up with individual custom treatments to provide them with the necessary strategies and tools to move them beyond their grief and work towards a healthier future. We use various modalities such as Bioenergetic Frequency/Quantum Healing, Reiki, and Grief and Bereavement Nurturing to help guide you along your life‘s journey. Our treatments also heighten your ability to focus, find self-love, make room for new experiences, deepen your connection with your higher self, help you find your voice, build confidence, and feel a sense of security.

Our services are designed to assist widows and those who have lost a spouse or partner and have moved past the initial stages of loss and grief. transitioning into healing and learning ways to create a fulfilling life while recovering from the challenges associated with grief and anguish.

With so many types of challenges in our rapidly changing world, it is not possible to use a one-size-fits-all coping strategy. Everyone grieves in different ways. Recovering from grief is a long process, and different phases may require guidance. Depending on what that looks like for the individual, we may focus on how to reconnect with loved ones, choosing a new career or exploring new relationships and stepping into a new happy life while celebrating the person you were and who you are now.”
