Today we’d like to introduce you to Leslie Arboleda.
Hi Leslie, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today.
I’ve always been that person that strangers want to share their deepest, darkest secrets with while we are standing in the grocery store line, so figuring out I could do that for a living was a bit of a dream come true! For the first 25 years, I considered myself over-educated and under-experienced having pursued not only a BS in Human Development and Family Studies from Colorado State University and an MBA in Marketing from Oregon State University but also an MS in Counseling Psychology, focusing on grieving children.
In 2008, my husband and I were blessed with the first of our three children, and over the next ten years, I learned the benefits of living in alignment with your own body, brain, and breath. It becomes clearer every day that my larger roles in Life include Teacher and Healer. Over the years my approach and how I embody these roles have continued to grow and change, much as I have, personally.
As I pursue greater and more specific in-depth studies into a variety of topics, including philosophy, history, physics, biology, and neuroscience, to name a few, increasing clarity continues to come to me with greater knowledge and more complete understanding. As an international speaker, I inspire audiences around the globe by sharing both my successes and my failures as I discovered how to rewrite the story I was living. On my journey, I learned to stop living in pain and started living empowered.
Today, in my professional practice as a Personal Improvement Guide, I support folks who are feeling dissatisfied in some (or all) areas of their lives in reconnecting to their body, brain, and breath to transform their relationship with themselves and the people in their lives. Using a combination of movement and stillness, the folks I work with learn to better understand their energetic blueprint to build the aligned life that brings them joy with ease.
I have come to believe that we are all hardwired to have a joyful human experience in this lifetime, and it is my passion and purpose to share that with others. As human beings, we are not likely to avoid pain and struggle, but with proper guidance, we can use those painful experiences as cues and clues to remembering our unique greatness.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Hands up, kids, this coaster is ROLLING!! I’ve never thought of my path as a smooth one, but I also think that might be pretty boring! Like most people walking around with us, I have experienced both challenges and trauma over the years, which make for a dynamic journey, but as I round the corner on 50, I think the biggest obstacle I can identify is getting in my way and playing small at this game called Life.
At this point, I live and preach the power of taking small aligned actions in creating the life of your dreams while also living that joy-filled experience at the moment.
As you know, we’re big fans of Kizen Wellness. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
Guided Personal Improvement is a fusion of movement and stillness that supports folks in feeling happier and healthier. In aligning to your own body, brain, and breath, you can improve your relationship with yourself and the people in your life as well as access your goals and dreams with more ease. I offer one-on-one guidance and group guidance, and I work with folks on a 6-week, 12-week, 6-month, and 12-month framework, depending on the goals and challenges for which they seek guidance.
What sets me apart from other coaches is the true focus on incremental success and the value of perspective and the language we use to describe the experience and process. I often work through the lens of Quantum Human Design (TM), which emphasizes the power of language in creating the story we are living, and when I see clients integrate that new knowledge in ways that create real, joyful changes in their lives, I am reminded of my purpose — helping others feel triumphant over their traumas, honoring them as a part of the past without carrying them into the present and future.
I want everyone to remember that we are each a unique, cosmic event, blessed with this lifetime to fulfill our purpose with joy and ease, and when the experience of life doesn’t feel that way, I hope everyone has another in their lives that can remind them of their greatness. We are here on this earth to be happy, healthy, and abundant, and living in alignment is the key to having that earthly experience.
Before we go, is there anything else you can share with us?
I am filled with gratitude for the opportunity to share myself with your readers. As human beings walking around in these animated meat suits, the ONLY thing over which we have total control is where we put our bodies and our focus; and the only currency of equal value we have to exchange with each other is time, so it truly fills my heart with gratitude to share time and space with you.
