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

Hi Yaritza, Let’s talk about principles and values – what matters to you most?
I was once asked during an event if I could pick one value or principle to live by what would it be? I still remember how quickly the word integrity flashed in my mind. Integrity is defined not just as the quality of being honest and having a strong moral compass, but alternatively it can also be used to describe a state of wholeness. When we are honest with ourselves and our needs we’re not only showing integrity for our own humanity, but we’re also making space in the world for others to know it’s safe to honor themselves as well. I know so many people, including myself, who have abandoned their truth in order to avoid discomfort or to make someone else feel good. The problem with this is when we abandon our integrity we also abandon ourselves and rob others from fully experiencing the real you. It’s due to this that so many of us feel so disconnected with ourselves and our wholeness which is our innate birth right. I now consciously set the intention to move through life staying in integrity with my needs so that I can show up more powerfully for myself and others.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Currently Im using the deep intuitive experience that I fostered during my years as a nurse in combination with natural and ancient healing modalities to help people heal their lives and bodies. As an intuitive healer I believe one thing that sets me apart is the deep knowing that the healing process starts from within. My job is to help guide you inward so your bodies innate wisdom can create the balance or homeostasis that is natural. I recently facilitated a session for a gentleman who felt very disconnected from his ability to feel love and by the end of our session he had insight as to what had disconnected him and how he could create that feeling within himself. It was so gratifying to witness the lightness and joy in his face at the end of our session. I also had another client who was struggling with urinary retention and urinary tract infections and after a few sessions she was able to release her bladder fully and has not had any more problems with infections. To witness her surprise and amazement when she reached out to share that she had just fully emptied her bladder was beyond exciting, because it was her alignment with her body that helped her heal. I’m always in awe about how the bodies wisdom can guide you back to health if you’ll simply trust yourself and allow all of you to be allowed, accepted, and witnessed. Has it been easy to build a business around work that the western world of medicine doesn’t fully acknowledge? No way! It’s been extremely challenging. Especially sharing and allowing myself to be seen as different from the community I grew up in. Overcoming the challenges has been a slow process that continues til this day. I had to give myself the opportunity to open my mind to different healing alternatives. I had to spend years exploring and trusting my gut over what the rest of the world told me was right for me. I had to trust that above all else I knew what was right for me. At first I didn’t feel safe to fully share with people the kind of services I was offering which range from breath work, Bach flower therapy, energy healing, and somatic unwinding but slowly I’m allowing my light to shine brightly and following the calling that has been quietly but persistently trying to get my attention for years. Building a business has taught me a deeper sense of integrity, resilience, trust, and most of all patience. It’s helped me embody more of my true self and those are all qualities that I live by, run my business by, and constantly share with others.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
There are a few places that pop into my mind. First off I love going down to Lauderdale by the Sea super early in the morning to watch the sunrise and then after breakfast do some people watching in the very cool beach chairs that are set up for people to relax in. I’ve had some great conversations with people there. I would definitely want to take the over to Butterfly World which I always find very relaxing and serene. Im all about the chill earthy vibes if you haven’t noticed. We’d have to head into Wynwood of course and check out the art walk, walls, and take pictures of sidewalk art. I love listening to some good live music so Lagniappe in Miami or some salsa dancing would be a must visit. Ceviche 105 in miami for some fresh peruvian food would also be on the top of my list. Club Tipico Dominicano is also fun for some local latin dancing and awesome food. And lastly if they are coming during the months when the antique market is open on lincoln road I definitely take them there for some cool unique finds.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I deeply believe that everybody who crosses our path is in one way or another influencing who we become and how our life evolves. I have so much gratitude for everyone who enters my life whether for a short few minutes or years, but I would like to give an extra special shoutout to a beautiful friend and now spirit guide who I often turn to for guidance and support. While Juliette Graziano was here in the physical world she was a powerful source of inspiration and grace. I met her while working as a Cancer Nurse at the University of Miami. Juliette had this presence about her that uplifted any room. She believed in people’s abilities to be great and encouraged me to see my gifts when I was too afraid to do so. She empowered anyone who crossed her path and gave me one of the greatest gifts to hold space for her during her journey with Breast Cancer and even til her last moments. I often thank her for allowing me the honor of witnessing her beauty and vulnerability in such an intimate way. I now call on her when the challenges feel too great to bare on my own, when I need a little extra guidance, or just when I need a good laugh. I will always and forever feel especially honored our lives crossed paths. Thank you Juliette.
