Jessie De Lowe
Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I am a manifestation coach, art therapist, yoga teacher, co-founder of the wellness/lifestyle platform How You Glow and co-host of Madly Forever podcast.
My most important job is being a mama to our sweet, magical 3 year old named Amelie (and soon another baby girl coming next month!) My family is my first priority, and I’m so grateful for the blessing of being able to share this beautiful life with them, spending our days loving each other, surrounded by nature and close to the ocean
How were you first introduced to manifestation?
I was first introduced to manifestation as a young teen—my mom was very into metaphysical / spiritual studies and had dozens of books on various topics, including manifestation. Both my sister and I would take stacks of books into our beds and read them regularly. In addition, I think the upbringing I had fostered a sense of high self worth and unconditional self love, which enabled me to dream up my reality without many restricting limiting beliefs, which made me a skillful manifestor from a young age.
Do you have any book or podcast recommendations for people who are interested in trying it out for themselves?
"I love Becoming Supernatural by Dr. Joe Dispenza"
How did you discover your true passions? How have those manifested into your life today?
"Going to undergrad in Boulder, Colorado absolutely intensified my love of wellness and nature. The healthy lifestyle there was unlike anything I had experienced before; daily hikes in the majestic mountains provided the perfect backdrop for me to tap into my spirituality in a much deeper way. In school I studied art and psychology, my two main interests at the time, and discovered (from a simple google search!) that upon graduation I could combine these two fields into a career path, pursuing Art Therapy. Before starting my Masters program in Art Therapy at NYU in the Fall, I spent a month at Kripalu in the Berkshires getting certified as a yoga and meditation teacher. My yoga training was so impactful that I decided to weave yoga into my art therapy practice with clients. Since then, I have always allowed my interests to evolve organically, letting my passion for learning, sharing and helping others activate their light be the driving force in the work I pursue. As a Manifestation Coach, I feel so fortunate to be able to tap into all of the modalities that have informed my personal practice in order to assist others in creating the life of their dreams. Since falling madly in love with my husband Brian, LOVE has also been a major passion and focus of mine, both in the work I do with clients and also in the research and reading I immerse myself in. Our podcast Madly Forever was created with the intention of exploring how couples stay madly in love over time, and what the secrets are to everlasting love / successful relationships. I’m excited to share that I recently released a digital course to help people manifest love into their lives, which I’m super passionate about!"
What advice would you give to women who are struggling to find their paths?
"Notice what makes you feel most alive and pay attention to what you’re good at. Trust that if you have a strong, clear intention and believe in yourself, you can turn anything into a way to earn a living".
Do you have any daily rituals that you could share?
"At the end of each day, Brian, Amelie and I lay in bed together and write down the answers to the following prompts:
What are you grateful for?
What are you looking forward to?
One cool thing that happened:
Its the sweetest ritual to share as a family and can’t recommend it enough! I’m also really into lighting candles, incense and Palo Santo and taking a daily beach walk with bare feet".
How did you and Brian meet? Did you know right away or did the relationship take work to figure it out?
"Brian and I met through the dating app Raya. We both joined while it was still technically in beta mode and very few people were on it, as we were friends with two different people who had created the app. Brian called his mom after our first date and told her he had met his wife!! I called my mom after our second date, exclaiming that I had met my husband. I truly felt like we had known each other for lifetimes before and we were coming home to one another".
We feel like men might be less open to giving manifestation a shot. Was Brian already interested in manifestation or did you introduce him to it? Any tips for getting your significant other involved in it?
"Yes- the majority of my clients are women but after working together I have had several ladies purchase sessions for their husbands/ male partners. I also love my corporate group manifestation workshops where it is usually an equal split between men and women—the men LOVE it and are so hungry for this work, but just don’t typically seek it out on their own. Brian is a natural manifestor- he wasn’t formally interested in manifestation but he has always been completely open and interested in learning more. I think the best way to spark interest is by leading by example and sharing your excitement with what you’re personally learning and experiencing".
What is your favorite piece of relationship advice?
"Sandwich eace piece of criticism between two layers of praise :)"
How has quarantine impacted your relationship and life? What are some practices you have found to be helpful during this time?
"We have been able to spend so much more time together as a family— with both of us working from home, we pretty much eat every meal together which makes me so happy. The first few months were very challenging. Being pregnant without any help with Amelie and Brian working more than ever was really tiring and overwhelming. But since then, we’ve moved to a more peaceful house with a yard where Amelie can spend time outside and we also (more importantly!) have childcare, so we are in a really amazing groove. The practices that kept me sane during the most challenging stretch were waking up early to have time for myself, being outside in nature as much as I could, cooking beautiful meals for my family, and FaceTiming with friends and family to stay connected. It also really helped reminding myself that it was just a chapter in time, and getting excited for the next chapter which we luckily have already embarked on!"
What is/are your favorite thing(s) to do on a free weekend?
"We love to hike, ride bikes, go to the farmers market and fish market, have picnics at the beach, explore a new place, try a new restaurant, play cards or chess, cook and cuddle".
