Edyta is an Intuitive Coach, healer, goddess and Queen of her own Queendom.
"Edyta is passionate about restoring FEMININE ENERGY in the world filled with masculinity.
Having worked in a highly competitive industry as an Architect Engineer for ten years, she found balancing her work and home lives (she was already a mother of two then) overwhelming and tiring. She ran her own property business at the same time, which left her exhausted.
Seeking a better balance between the two areas of her life, Edyta immersed herself in personal development and became a coach.
Being tired, exhausted and overwhelmed made her realise that she needed to start her own healing process from within.
As she brought more and more balance into her life, she realised that FEMININE ENERGY and MASCULINE ENERGY are both equally important and powerful. She now teaches that the feminine energy must be acknowledged and empowered by us- as women, mothers and all!
As a coach, author and international speaker, Edyta has done numerous videos on feminine energy, connecting with it and bringing it into balance. You can find her on YouTube, TikTok and on Facebook where she shares her wisdom in a group called QUEEN AWAKENING. Her greatest wish is for every woman to create a future full of healthy and fulfilling relationships through twin flame connection and femininity.
Edyta speaks at her monthly webinars. Her recent ones were '5 Ways to Balance Energy' and 'Karmic Partner, Twin Flame and Soul Mate'.
Her message for every woman: Restore the FEMININE ENERGY in you. Be acknowledged, be YOU!
