Meet Melissa Oatman

Today we’d like to introduce you to Melissa Oatman.

Melissa, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
About three years ago, I had just gone through a bad breakup. I felt lost. I didn’t know which direction to turn. I felt like there had to be more to life than what I was living. I didn’t feel fulfilled. I felt stuck. I started searching everywhere for answers. Was I living my purpose? Was I headed in the right direction? I didn’t know. I couldn’t answer any of those questions. That is when I came across a spiritual life coach that I just knew I had to work with. She told me that my purpose was to help others heal. After working with her, I gained the courage to write my story. I wrote a book about surviving divorce and single motherhood that is called “Beautifully Broken.” It is a guide to helping others heal after loss. I started a weekly podcast to help others who were like me. It’s called “Awaken Your Inner Awesomeness,” and each episode is filled with topics to help you improve your daily life through mindfulness techniques. There are also topics to help you deepen your spirituality. I have many amazing guests who come on each week to share their knowledge and inspire others. I also became certified in Reiki, Past Life Regression, and hypnosis. At first, my focus was on doing Reiki or readings, but now I do more coaching than anything else. I help women learn how to love themselves more so that they can step fully into their power and purpose in life. I help them heal from past trauma and remove any blockages that are keeping them stuck in negative thought and behavior patterns.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road has not always been smooth. I have built my business slowly, and my family didn’t understand why I was doing what I was doing at first. I think they thought I had lost my mind. They began to see the importance of why I am here. I have always said that if I can help even one person, then I have served my purpose. What has kept me going is the number of people who reach out to say thank you. I hear things like, “You have kept me from drinking,” or “My life has improved so much because of you.” That is what really fuels me to keep going. I’m not where I want to be yet, but I know I am on my way.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am an author, podcaster, and healer. It is my mission in life to help women build their self-confidence and get rid of limiting beliefs about themselves. I help women learn how to stand in their power again, which gives them the courage to leave toxic relationships, start new careers, or be healthier in mind and body.

I was put here to help other women see their value and worth. It is my passion to teach them how to love themselves again.

I got started in this business to help other women experience massive healing. I wanted women to know that you don’t have to wake up every day dreading your life. In fact, it’s possible to wake up every day living your dream life! I didn’t have an easy path to healing, and I wanted other women to get there faster and with more grace than I did. I wanted to help others find the answers that it took me so long to find. There is nothing more fulfilling to me than seeing other women succeed and thrive, and to know that I contributed to their success in some way…that is priceless!

Have you learned any interesting or important lessons due to the Covid-19 Crisis?
I have learned that it is more important than ever to be present each day. We were forced to slow down during this pandemic, and it is my belief that this happened for a reason. Life is so hectic sometimes that we miss most of it. We don’t slow down long enough to truly enjoy the blessings that we have. This crisis forced us to slow down and really look at our lives. It’s so important that we value the relationships in our lives and that we live authentically. If you’re not happy with something in your life, it’s never too late to fix it.
