We had the good fortune of connecting with Francisca Hernandez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Francisca, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Anytime I’m worried and trying to figure out how things will work out, I remember this quote and immediately feel soothed and comforted. It reminds me that I’m being guided and led, AND I get to actively participate in the magical synchronicity that’s led to this moment and that’ll lead to the next.

I’m still always amazed at how Source works so effortlessly and seamlessly. If I stopped to think about all the details that went into co-creation, I might go mad.

In all honesty, I think that’s what drives us to frustration. Trying to piece everything together, asking yourself, “But, how can I make this work? What am I supposed to do?”

Time and time again, the Universe responds, “It’s not up to you to make it work; just follow the synchronicity.”

I’m not here to tell you it’s the easiest thing you’ll ever do. But I also can’t tell you that it’s as tricky as we’ve been taught it’s supposed to be.

You see, it’s the small moments that make the most difference.

The small moment you choose to move in a different direction, take the tiniest leap of faith, or try something that feels right in your heart.

The small moment you choose to trust that little voice inside your heart that says, “Just share it.”

All the Universe asks from us is that we take inspired action.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I nearly bled to death in 2017. After years of numbing with alcohol, drugs, overworking, and over-functioning, I chose to stop existing and started living.
I now use energy healing modalities like Conscious Connected Breathwork, Restorative Yoga, Reiki, and Tarot to help clients dealing with grief, trauma, and overwhelm, release bottled-up emotions, get clear-headed and access their intuition.

I especially love using a potent combination of Breathwork, Tarot, and Reiki to help clients shift old patterns, breathe deeply, connect consciously, and thrive wholeheartedly!

What sets me apart from other Breathwork teachers is that I encourage clients to submit song requests, which creates a deeply personal experience helping them relieve stress, anxiety, and old emotional wounds so they can feel lighter, relaxed, and focused.

Not only does music help heal the soul, but combining Breathwork with personal playlists can elevate the experience leaving people with a sense of ease, discernment, and emotional clarity. Plus, I love combing Breathwork with Tarot or Reiki.

I announced my resignation on January 14, 2022; turning my back on a steady-paying job as an office manager of 14 years was challenging. And when my mother passed away just two weeks later, on January 31, 2022, I knew I’d made the right choice. But I couldn’t have imagined what today might’ve looked like. Sure, I knew I’d be working for myself and focusing my full efforts on growing my business, but having my own healing studio so soon was not even on my radar.

Fast forward to today, and Breathe Connect Thrive Studio has been open since March 15, 2022. Of course, there have been challenges, but I always get reassured when I see my clients’ teary-eyed flushed faces, and I hear them say things like, “I’ve never felt so emotional yet strong, clear-minded yet dream-like and illuminated.”

I can’t say enough good things about Rachel East, my former career coach from Clarity on Fire. I gained so much clarity in my life and career. Rachel was able to shine the light on my path and ignite that fire that I’d forgotten was always inside. I went into coaching, looking to find my new career. But what I came out with was much more. She helped me find a way to live my life to the fullest in an authentic way. Rachel helped me break through my limiting beliefs and tune into my creative, intuitive, fluid soul. And I felt free and could pursue my passion for learning about spirituality; this was the catalyst for everything that followed.
