Jen Blackstock is the Vision Keeper, Body Whisperer, Champagne-sipping Oracle, Embodiment Mentor & Fearless Poetess. Founder of The Unbridled Life and creator of The Heroine’s Odyssey. Fiercely dedicated to helping you fully step into your Calling through intuition, listening to your body, and utilizing techniques new and old~ so you can create the life you were born to live- passionate, on fire, free.
My passion is to help you be in your power as an Embodied woman, connect with your divine helpers, and unlock your body’s wisdom so you can have the courage to fully trust your path and your journey. It’s all about following your heart, getting in your body, trusting the journey and moving the way you want to move everywhere you go and in everything you do.
I believe you can be the master of your own destiny. Of your truth. Of your Calling.
I believe your body is constantly sending you messages of what you need in order to heal, grow and thrive.
I believe if you can learn to let go of the reins and trust, true miracles can happen in your life.
I believe that everything is energy, and if something is manifesting physically – in your body, your patterns, your daily life – that is really something happening internally – in your soul – that is calling out to be seen, heard and healed
I believe each of you is divine in nature, and can access any help you need along the way- no matter where you are in your life.
I work with you – the visionaries, change makers, and spiritual warriors of the world – to take you deeper into your relationship with your own body so you can step fully into your own Unbridled Life. Learning who you really are, what your body is telling you about your strengths and what is holding you back from stepping fully into shining brightly like only YOU can. All of this so you can set out to be fully yourself in the world – embodying your full power, grace and wisdom to truly set the world ABLAZE.
My Unbridled Life
“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.”
— Clarissa Pinkola Estés
I haven’t always been the woman you see in the pictures here. In fact, for years I struggled with health problems, unfulfilling jobs, bad relationships, broken hearts and tales of living a life completely bridled by my fears and worries.
I grew up on a small horse farm in New Jersey, and on most summer afternoons you could find me in the pool or in the barn, immersing myself in nature with the cats, dogs, horses and other wildlife.
I was always the awkward girl- from age 2 to about 4, I stopped talking. No one knows why. I just turned inward. This was beyond shy- this was introvert to the extreme. Then as my dad fondly puts it, one day I spoke and then never shut up. I don’t think it was that extreme- but I did grow up with this story and always thought I was shy, or there was ‘something’ wrong with me for having been this way as a child.
At age 11, I was diagnosed with Lyme’s Disease after the right side of my face was paralyzed with Bells Palsy. After intensive treatments, my face reached a ‘cosmetically acceptable’ place, but I never felt quite right. It always made me feel self-conscious- like I was deformed. Add in glasses, being the first girl in my class to ‘develop’ and being about 50 pounds overweight,
I HATED MY BODY AND WANTED TO DO ANYTHING TO GET OUT OF IT.
So I buried myself in my studies and worked hard to be top in my class in high school and college- becoming engrossed in an odd combination of subjects: business/ economics and… mythology/ religion/ anthropology. At the time, these two conflicting realms made no sense, but now it seems perfect preparation for my work today.
I graduated from Drew University right after 9/11 and found myself in the dungeons of the largest financial firm in the world, working to insure small investment firms and large financial institutions against securities lawsuits. By the time I was 26, I was the youngest ever executive at a wholesale brokerage firm. I had the VP position, rocking salary, fancy car, apartment in the nicest part of San Francisco, had completed multiple triathlons and marathons, was dating several men at once and had social clout in a large group of friends.
BUT I WAS COMPLETELY DEAD INSIDE.
I had lost faith in something bigger than me, drowned myself in booze most nights, and had meaningless one night stands to fill a hole in my heart that was so buried, I couldn’t even find it.
And my body was not happy with me. For my entire 27th year, I bounced from specialist to specialist to address my constant acne, back pain, digestive issues, knee injuries…. the list went on. And I began to know all too well the term ‘No-diagnosis diagnosis’. Here’s me on my 27th birthday….
Shortly after this night, I decided to skip a client dinner at a 5-star restaurant and stumbled into a yoga class at my gym- so cliche and ultimately, so perfect. Before class, the teacher taught us an ancient chant.
EVERYTHING IN ME WANTED TO RUN, BUT I STAYED.
That moment changed my life. That chant became my salvation. That teacher became my first guide.
I cried for the first time in many years- real tears, not drunken ‘I’m so lonely’ tears. These were tears from my heart- from my soul- and I was ready to start releasing the life that wasn’t meant for me.
A trajectory of events followed: I quit my job a few months later and over the course of the next 8 years, I’ve studied with the Masters: Ana Forrest, Shiva Rea, Paul Muller Ortega, Ellen Watson, Hugh Milne, Leonid Soboleff, Elayne Kalila Doughty, Nisha Moodley and several more.
I immersed myself in deep studies of the Mysteries and Tantric practices. I became of devotee of the Shakti creative force and of the Divine Masculine of Shiva.
I took a pilgrimage to Esalen and found my second home.
I lived in Bali for 7 months and learned the arts of healing.
IT WAS IN THESE YEARS THAT I LEARNED THAT IT’S NOT JUST THE BODY THAT IS IN PAIN WHEN THERE IS ILLNESS- IT IS ALSO THE SOUL CALLING OUT TO BE HEARD.
I healed many things from my past in those jungles, and I infuse my work with that of the Master’s I met there.
I declared bankruptcy. And redeemed myself.
I founded and grew three businesses that grew to over 6+ Figures by myself- passionately studying and implementing new forms of healing, coaching, and spiritual entrepreneurship.
First I ran a highly successful bodywork and CranioSacral Therapy practice in San Francisco, CA. Running a wait-list practice was full of adventure, lessons and growth as I helped thousands of clients release the pain in their body- and the stories that accompanied the pain.
I had clients who couldn’t even eat solid food their jaw as in so much pain- begin to feel free again.
I journeyed with men and women who had been in severe car and bike accidents heal from the months of required surgeries and grief that came with them.
I saw severe back pain that was debilitating disappear with the removal of the fears causing them.
I witnessed cases of ‘no-diagnosis’ diagnosis patients miraculously heal once they addressed the emotions hidden in the pain in their body in my studio.
Jobs quit, businesses started, soul mates found- all came about from the deep work my clients committed to as they trusted the wisdom of their body and found their truth.
Eventually though, my hands could not handle the intense schedule of client sessions 6 days a week, 8 hours a day. And my adrenals became so fatigued from the simple act of giving so much. So I pressed pause on my very successful brick-and-mortar business to explore other ways that I could serve while my own hands healed.
I traveled to Peru and worked with a shaman who helped me make friends with the darkness, see my highest self, and connect with parts of myself I thought I had lost forever.
I’ve celebrated the most amazing things to happen and some of the toughest heartbreaks I’ve ever felt.
I’ve had days where I felt infinite, and days where I felt shattered.
I’ve faced my demons and shadows and I’ve met my prince in shining armor.
I’ve worked with thousands of women and men in deep healing of the body, mind and soul. I’ve run multiple long-term programs, group programs, thousands of individual sessions and taught workshops around the United States.
And through it all, I’ve come back to one simple truth:
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE JOURNEY, AND EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IS ALWAYS- EACH AND EVERY TIME- PERFECT AND EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE MEANT TO BE.
SIMPLY HAVING TRUST AND FAITH, SURRENDER AND HOPE OPENS US UP TO GRACE SO WE CAN LIVE FULLY.
AND THAT MY FRIENDS, IS THE MEANING OF IT ALL.
And it feels damn good- so good I can’t wait to Share it With You.
