Soul Traveler Stories
A YouTube series where YOU get to share your stories with the world.
Grab a beverage and enjoy the conversation!
Soul Traveler Stories are weekly video conversations with people who have a story to tell. My wish is that one of these stories will inspire you to take action somewhere in your life or look at your own personal and ancestral shadows. Perhaps a story will inspire you to write that book you have been dreaming about or take the ancestral trip you keep putting off until “someday”. Maybe you will see yourself in someone else’s stories and know you are not alone in your experiences. Be reminded that we are all energetically connected.
Why Do We Need to Tell Our Stories?
Many of our ancestors were never allowed to use their voice, to speak their authentic truth, or be exactly who they were meant to be. Instead they were persecuted, tortured, shamed, silenced. We, their descendants carry the weight of their unspoken words, unhealed wounds, unfulfilled dreams, and traumas. Observe the energies which run through your family and this becomes obvious. Each of us has heard the whispers and been told to never reveal the family secrets. We have been programmed since birth to hide our light and gifts. Become invisible. To not be different or weird. To fit in. To never be our authentic self. Never speak our truth.
What would happen if we brought those shadows to light? If we had those taboo conversations with our family members? If we started speaking the truth of our ancestors and ourselves? Who might this help? How much change could it create on our planet? Who might this inspire? How might our stories heal?
Isn’t it time we come out of the shadows and into the light? To do what we came here to do? Be that shining example for others to provide hope, inspiration, joy, and possibility? I want to give you a space to share your stories of grief & loss or inspiration. Soul Traveler Stories is one way I can help you tell your stories and inspire others.
I am seeking storytellers to have a video conversation with me. These are some of the possible topics.
Each episode conversation will run 15-20 minutes.

Would you like to participate in the Soul Traveler Stories video series and tell your stories? I'm taking applications for season 1 guests, which drops Monday 3 October 2022 on YouTube.
If you are selected as a guest, we will have a short conversation about your story so I can craft some interview questions. These will be recorded on Zoom.
I'm Jennifer Holik
Spiritual Coach, Intuitive healer specializing in inherited & war trauma, and personal & ancestral healing.
I’m a spiritual coach and an Intuitive healer specializing in inherited & war trauma, and personal & ancestral healing. I’ve been on a conscious personal healing journey for a more than a decade. My journey began over 25 years ago while researching & writing about my family & military history. My military ancestors helped me dive deeper into my personal & ancestral trauma to heal.
Discovering the history of our families allows for family patterns, inherited trauma, & secrets to rise. This provides an opportunity to take a deeper look at our research to allow for healing & closure.
By 2015 my healing journey & military work allowed me to travel in Europe & create a life both there & in Chicago. I became embedded in Dutch society, life, relationships, healthcare, politics, culture, got a deep dive into grief when I became a caregiver to someone I was married to in the Netherlands. All of that gave me a unique perspective on our world & the layers of trauma we each carry, no matter where we live.
I visited battlefields & burial sites, religious & cultural sites, heard family & war stories, some of which brought me to my knees in grief as I channeled the people telling the stories. I understand context that many people do not. This makes me unique in the way I can help clients heal on both sides of the ocean to explore their personal & ancestral family patterns & war trauma. I have studied & understand genealogy & military records, & what information, secrets, patterns, inherited trauma, feelings, & emotions they may share.
Each experience I had in Europe gave me awareness & puzzle pieces for my healing & the healing of our ancestors & the collective. Puzzle pieces & awareness I can now share with you.
For more than a decade I have studied ancestral lineage healing, energy healing modalities, inherited trauma, PTSD, grief & loss, caregiving, & spiritual modalities. I have also taken a deep dive into my personal and ancestral healing.
I look forward to working with you to heal yourself and your ancestors. We are all connected no matter where we live, what our culture is, what our trauma has been….when one heals, we all heal.
