'ignite your true self'

Hello, I am Cilica. As an intuitive coach, my aim is to elicit your best by being calm, respectful and open to help you feel at ease.

Clients like yourself, come to me to help them with mild to severe anxiety, depression, fear and personal challenges. I offer new perspectives and supportive solutions to clear the fog.

My toolbox includes compassion, stillness, mindfulness and empathic insights to see who you are through your layers, negativity and walls of protection. The most powerful tool I offer is to listen and truly hear. In this approach I I hope to enable you to sit, appreciate, accept and validate your qualities.

I support you to rebuild your life from a healing, holistic perspective for lasting change releasing worry, unworthiness, and unhelpful perceptions of your world. Gain positive, optimistic viewpoints bringing yourself a flow of happier interactions.

Being neither positive nor negative – a non-dualistic life gives you freedoms from external or harmful internal expectations. The theory of non-suffering; release your mind from turmoil, over thinking, and ease into focus, clarity of action.

Together, ignite shifts in your beliefs, perspectives and intentions. Using intuitive awareness and empathic insights I suggest a course of action to a balanced life of happier, healthy and productive outcomes.

Additionally, I teach the art of non-violence, re-patterning, and releasing. Removing negativity from around you, in your life to then re-pattern change to adopt constructive habits and gain clarity; to where you are able to release the past to live in the present, the life as you want.

Call me. It’s the first step to feeling good. Do the things you want to with courage, energy and love.

My Story

Growing Up

I was born with a clear, quiet mind; a natural meditative mind and spirit. Growing up I knew beyond the usual about the world and people. I continue to feel, know and see with a common sense approach to living a holistic life.

At a young age, I noticed what people said wasn’t what they meant or even truthful. I heard patterns in their lies, in the wishful words of optimism, pain and happiness: information unsaid, and the silence in between. I knew what about their heartaches, triumphs, wishes, losses, worries, their joys - who needed a hug.

My grandmother taught me to stay with these insights, to keep listening, to just listen and really hear. Fortunately, I grew up in a home where being heard wasn’t a priority, so listening became a way of life. I continued to learn from my grandmother until she died – she’d say, “Hearing leads to knowing in where common sense tells us when to share and when to be silent.”

I wanted to know how to touch people’s spirit, to make their pain disappear. I was encouraged to use my empathic insights to hear what people needed most. To many people’s surprise, it's isn’t what they think they need or want. It goes deeper; sometimes it can hit nerves, often it bring relief.

Natural clarity and tranquillity I bring to all sessions.

Working Together

All approaches in sessions are of a holistic mind, body and spirit integration. Significant to this connection is our sessions are not confined to the mind only. We explore physical as well as spiritual aspects to your emotional growth and stability. Example: A routine of exercise, minimises the effects of depression.

In conjunction, I present a listening ear without unnecessary interruptions to help you solve troubles, gain confidence work through challenges.

For the ultimate results, together we work from a method that is specific to your needs. In our first session we discover if you prefer a hands-on approach, action oriented, visual, listening, thinking or emotional base.

Attend with or without a plan, many plans, ideas, goals, triumphs, confusion, frustration, wants and desires. However, you are. We too work

My philosophy is always to make you know I have your progress at the heart of each session. Your brilliance is to shine.

My experiences of three decades as an intuitive teach me to be continually present – hear who is in front of me with compassion.

Our primary focus is to clarify your situation and needs today. This clearness dictates what actions to suggest, when and how to proceed.

Understanding your past has a bearing on who you are, why and what lead you to where you are now. Parallel in recognition is your wants and desires for the future.

A dear friend Rev Master Kōten, a Buddhist Monk, told me he ‘sees each person anew, each time they meet’. I use his philosophy to give me the clarity to see the changes and real nature of clients, each time we meet.

Who I Work With

I work with dedicated adults and late teens who want to make significant changes in their lives, business and relationships. Clients come from varied backgrounds of the arts, professions and trades.

These clients are those that want to find answers, make changes and go deep. I seldom work with those who swim in the shallow end, but sometimes I do with great results.

You are welcome if you need a shoulder to cry on, someone to just listen – hearing you without judgments, and supporting your desires, to live in the present and life without drama.

Additionally, I work with the LGBT and battered women and men communities.

My Mentor

The name of this web site is in honour of my grandmother, Grace Mitchell. As a child, I gave my grandmother the nickname Grimmins, I still called her this as an adult and until she passed 29 years ago.

My Grandmother was spiritual, intuitive and intelligent whom I admired for her determination, giving and sharing of life. Even when she had little in a monetary way to give, she still shared whatever she had with all peoples that came her way.

When Grace was separated from her husband with three children, she ran a boarding home in Ontario for years. The unusual, the gifted, the unknown who became famous like ‘Tommy Hunter’, the physically different, and ordinary people came to stay in this boarding home as tenants. Grace was accepting and she attracted honest, decent people, some of whom society was less than accepting.

Grace moved to British Columbia with her children to raise them in Vancouver for the last half of their childhood. I remember as a child her home in Surrey; the wood burning stove that heated the house on very cold mornings, the chickens in their coop and collecting their eggs, the neighbour’s dog kennel, neighbourhood children running around and her teaching me to drive a standard car on Maple Ridge’s back streets.

What I cherish the most was her bed time stories. I slept on the floor beside her single bed and before falling to sleep she told me her stories, her journey, her life, about people and way she navigated the world. It was through these stories I discovered we shared the same gifts being an intuitive, capability to listen to people hearing what is not said knowing beyond mere perceptions . . . to know . . . . to understand without assumptions or preconceived notions.

Ironically, the new concept of Personal Branding for Mentors and Life Coaches is no more than, but in fact much less than what I was being mentored in growing up over 40 years ago.

My Grandmother a great mentor, taught acceptance, understanding, and lives still in my heart as I coach.
