As a consultant, Jody works with huge global brands, including our very own kikki.K to inspire, teach and change lives.

Jody is amazing example of someone who has taken control of her life, jumped in the driver’s seat, and by discovering her passion is now living a life of purpose.

  • How tapping into your inner child can help you get more in touch with your true self
  • The importance of writing down and visualising how you want your life to be

  • How you can shift your energy, raise your vibration and embrace an ‘I can’ attitude in your everyday

– and so much more!


Jody is the first to admit that just five years ago, she was lost. Disconnected from who she was, she’d forgotten what it was to be happy, lit up and in-love with life.

Growing up with a very successful and driven family background and pursuing a career as high-flying and very successful Advertising Business Director, she all of a sudden found herself burned out, stressed and stuck in her very own corporate ‘cage’ – as she refers to it. Barely existing in a job that just wasn’t allowing her to be her full self. Like many, she had absolutely no idea what to do about it – except judge herself and get more and more frustrated, until one day she decided enough was simply enough.

And with that, she packed her bags and ventured to the other side of the world in search of herself. She embarked on a plant medicine retreat in Peru, which was the turning point in her life. “I woke up,” states Jody.

“My heart opened, my mind released its grip, and my soul spoke to me for the first time. I felt re-born, and like a baby walking for the first-time, I toddled back into my life.”

Finally, alive again and full of hope and excitement, she knew it was time to start something good in the world.

This is the Jody Kristina speaks to today – a hugely respected wellbeing expert, mentor and medication guru, dedicated to making a difference in the world, helping others to find their true selves and tap back in to that inner self they may have lost somewhere along the way.

Through embracing many rituals that help her to live her best life, Jody now lives with an energy, a contagious outlook on life and positive mindset that is a wonderful reminder of how we really can take control of our own lives.

Self-belief, visualisation (script writing), meditation, an ‘I can’ attitude and a passion for helping people is what drives Jody each day to live her dream life, a life of purpose and intention. You’ll find this episode truly inspiring and full of ways too you can start to work towards your own dream life today.

“One of the most powerful things I took from her story was how by really tapping into her heart and discovering what drives her, what lights her up, and making the decision to pursue that, Jody was able to leave her stressful career and create a life of purpose.” Kristina Karlsson
