Please introduce yourself:
Hi I’m Pamela Schneider, I’m originally from the Amherst, Massachusetts area and live in Cleveland, Ohio now.
What is your business about?
I am an energy doula – I help couples conceive high vibrational souls and shift their energy when they’re having trouble conceiving with traditional methods. I work with women to prepare them for an empowered birth, so they can give birth from a place of love instead of fear.
I also help mommas who are struggling in their postpartum period to re-connect with themselves. I’m trained as a holistic health coach and in numerous energy healing modalities as well as Quantum Clairvoyance which is a form of channeling.
I’ve found that when I combine them all in one session, powerful shifts happen for my clients – because we’re tapping into the quantum field (the field of energy where information about everything is stored) asking for guidance, I’m guiding them to make changes in the life to bring things into harmony for them, and I’m using reiki, goddess ascension and crystalline energies (extremely high vibrational energies) to bring healing and clear away any heaviness or anything that is our of balance.
I especially love bringing in the Goddess Ascension energies because it taps you directly into your divine feminine energies – helping you to feel more grounded and peaceful and it often brings out creativity and helps mommas speak their truth more.
What made you get into this line of business?
I became a health coach when I was healing myself from extremely bad migraines, and when I could only get so far with healing by changing my diet & lifestyle I sought out other ways to work on all levels – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, energetic.
I’d been drawn to reiki for a long time so I signed up to become a reiki master, and it felt so familiar to me – like i’d done it before, so I went on to study Kundalini reiki, birth trauma reiki, crystal reiki & animal reiki.
I was going through a huge period of changes in my life when I discovered Goddess Ascension, when I took the course I was really struggling in my life – working with these energies has really changes things for me.
I started speaking up more, I felt more confident, and way less self-critical. I started to create art again, and follow my intuition more. And then I found out I was pregnant, it was a total surprise to me.
I went through mixed emotions of being scared about being a mom and my abilities to be a good mom, and being thrilled about this new life. As I prepared for birth, I had a lot of healing & releasing to do around my own birth and the fears that were imprinted on me. I gave birth at home, and it was an empowering experience.
When my son arrived, I had a hard time breastfeeding him. We struggled with it for three and a half months and I ended up with a life threatening breast abscess that landed me in the hospital on IV antibiotics. It was a blessing in disguise, because through sharing my own story I had many moms reach out to me to share theirs – and I realized just how much we are going through as we transition to motherhood.
I was doing energy clearings for the full moon, and I ended up working with a new mom and someone who was trying to conceive. I decided to combine all of the energy work I had learned instead of just using reiki and the results were incredible! One mom I’d worked with had been depressed and hadn’t painted since before she found out she was pregnant (her baby is 5 months now).
She is now much happier and painting non stop! I knew I was onto something that could really help us mommas so I had to share.
What makes you get up in the morning/morning power routine?
I’m up with Oliver around 9am, we both get dressed for the day and I do an energy clearing. I also like to lay in bed and meditate for a few minutes if he’s being cooperative, and then I stretch gently when I get out of bed. Its winter so lately I’ve been loving my apple cinnamon oatmeal and juice.
What is a book everyone must read?
Sacred Birthing by Sunni Karl for sure. It was a huge inspiration for me and I’d wished I’d read it before I conceived. Another really important book for new moms is “The Fourth Trimester” by Kimberly Ann Johnson. They both explain how to bring things into harmony physically, emotionally, spiritually and energetically through all stages of creating a new life.
What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?
I like to use Avesa breathing – where you breathe in deeply and on the exhale you sigh the word “sa” and smile. It connects you with your breathe, smiling cheers you up and it signals the universe that you are open to receive its blessings.
What do you love about helping others?
I love being able to show other moms that they’re not alone – that how they’re feeling is totally normal and experienced by most moms. I love seeing the energy shift and hearing about how it’s impacted their lives. It makes me feel good to be doing something to help bring healing to the motherhood as a collective, we need all the support and healing we can find.
