What She Loves
She loves friendships with people who want to talk about transformation, deep inner processes, connection with the Divine.
She loves nature and the earth. She loves the . . .
- fierceness of dragonflies, guarding their territory from all flying intruders
- wake-up call of a rattlesnake’s rattle, waking us up to the magical, ephemeral nature of life
- rushing creeks with rocks to hop and slip off,
- getting pummeled by ocean waves, saltwater up her nose,
- slathering her body with mud and drying in the sun,
- feeling the ancient wisdom of huge old trees against her skin, drinking in patience, rootedness, stability,
- lying barefoot on a cool, moist slope, blood rushing to her head.
She loves fresh, organic food. Especially from local farmer’s markets, from the proud, working hands of the farmer.
She loves writing; she adores teaching.
She especially loves the way the internet gives her the possibilities of teaching people from all over the world – while sitting barefoot in her living room (and soon – her RV).
Natalie Hill – A Little History
Born in Phoenix, Arizona and graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Education, major Biology.
Phoenix was smaller, simpler, cleaner, friendlier then.
Her dream was to be a marine biologist, but she came to her senses when she realized she wasn’t a serious enough student to continue on to graduate school . . . and there was no knight galloping up to rescue her from the need to make a living.
So she followed in the path of three of her four older sisters and became a teacher.
Natalie’s necessity for novelty made even imagining getting a teaching job in a regular city in the boring USA feel stifling.Natalie sent 150 letters to international schools across the globe and landed a job teaching science at an international school in Caracas, Venezuela.
Her kids loved her for the excitement in and out of the classroom. Mosquito-hatching experiments, a giant spider, escaped from it’s container, and built an enormous web over the door frame, star-gazing overnight, spelunking through a river and bat-filled cave, a week camping on the beach.
She went on to teach virtually all subjects in two Eskimo villages in Alaska, Russian Mission on the Yukon River
(think moose and beaver and ice a yard thick on the river in winter) and Pt. Hope, on the Arctic Ocean (think polar bears and seals and zero bugs in the winter – swarming with them in the summer, no sun in January, no sunset in June.)
Lately, Natalie spent a month in the Philippines and 8 months in Thailand, before living in the Ecovillage at Ithaca, where she met her fabulous new friends and business partners:
Tapping Into Natalie
How did this all lead up to EFT for Natalie?
Well, it turns out that excitement, that energizing feel-good state . . . is a lot like anxiety, that jittery feel-bad state.
Natalie’s body would get stuck in the excitement/anxious state for weeks.
This is known as sympathetic nervous system dominance (the part of the nervous system in charge of the fight or flight response).
What she would experience – when she got a new job, fell in love, or had an unresolved conflict – was a many day or even many week body state of hyper-alertness.
Racing mind, difficulty sleeping, loss of appetite, rapid weight loss.
After four decades of living like this, without the consciousness, guidance or tools to learn a new way of being, Natalie Hill burnt out her adrenal glands and experienced chronic fatigue.
She experienced constant exhaustion, allergies, infections and pretty much zero vitality.
EFT or Tapping is terrific at resolving the root causes of anxiety. In fact, discovering tapping made such enormous changes for Natalie that she studied to become a tapping pro so she could help others.
That’s how she ended up creating this website.
Tapping and this website have given Natalie the opportunity to work from anywhere and continue experiencing life as an adventure. In 2010, she sold her house, truck and got rid of all her stuff.
She lived in the Philippines, Thailand and Malaysia for 9 months. Returning to the US, she lived in an eco-village in Ithaca, New York for five months.
As she writes this, she’s planning to buy an RV so she can work from anywhere she can drive to.
