Total Health: Nicole Fevrier Davis On How We Can Optimize Our Mental, Physical, Emotional, & Spiritual Wellbeing

Popular weight loss practices would have you believe that you are ignorant or powerless without their product or service or program. I want to stop that myth-binding idea and perpetuate an entirely new view of weight gain and loss through the power of prayer and insightful meditations that allow people’s wills to align with God’s Will for all people’s health on earth.

Often when we refer to wellness, we assume that we are talking about physical wellbeing. But one can be physically very healthy but still be unwell, emotionally or mentally. What are the steps we can take to cultivate optimal wellness in all areas of our life; to develop Mental, Physical, Emotional, & Spiritual Wellbeing?

As a part of our series about “How We Can Cultivate Our Mental, Physical, Emotional, & Spiritual Wellbeing”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Nicole Fevrier Davis.

Nicole’s approach blends the science of the body with the language of the soul to unlock powerful mind-body wisdom for clarity and peace that produces optimal results. Nicole is certified by accredited institutions such as NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) and AFAA (Aerobic and Fitness Association of America), is a certified Pilates instructor (Kane Core School), Lifetime metabolic technician, a NASM Behavior Change Specialist, and is a Universal Life Church ordained minister.

Thank you so much for joining us in this interview series! Before we dive into the main focus of our interview, our readers would love to “get to know you” a bit better. Can you tell us a bit about your childhood backstory?

I grew up in rural upstate New York as the fourth of four children. I was born five years after my closest sibling. I was left alone a lot and had plenty of time to explore my desires to be an artist like my father, a gymnast like my sister, play cards like my grandmother, and talk to spirits like my great-great-grandmother (who was deceased and who I only knew through stories about her existence growing up in Brittany, France from my father and my Taunt Phine and Ton Ton Charles). Though I sought to do well at all of it, I eventually realized no one else could see the spirits I was seeing as a child. That being said, I spent much of my childhood existence trying to fit in with other children who seemed scared of what I knew as an intuitive child. I have just always had a very different perspective, objective, and outlook on my life and what it was intended for and kids my age just never understood me.

What or who inspired you to pursue your career? We’d love to hear the story.

My inspiration didn’t come from a human. It came from our Lord God Almighty. I felt my soul’s purpose at first was to help people heal. I suppose you could say my mother inspired me first, as she was very ill most of her life. I was distressed that I couldn’t help her in more meaningful ways. I sought to educate myself in the healing arts and had always thought I could help people become healthier and happier through my healing abilities since I was sixteen (the age when I first attempted to soothe my mother’s pain with my hands).

As I grew up and discovered fitness, I found I had an intense desire to help people heal, become healthy, and lose weight. I began taking group fitness classes in 1982, studied a bit about energetic healing, became a certified group fitness instructor in 1984, and received my first and second degree attunements as a Reiki practitioner in 1990. There were numerous other times I had been inspired by the healing of Jesus Christ’s methods which is why I became a Reiki practitioner since the founding father of Reiki, Dr. Usui, was trying his best to find a method of healing that he could perpetuate and that emulated Jesus’ methods. Since then, however, I have had a spiritual calling to renounce much of what Reiki does through the channeled wisdom in the sessions from our Lord God Almighty.

Getting my information from our Source was of vital importance to me. I created a prayer I would say just before every healing or coaching: that I be a clear, perfect, and protected channel for the Most High Wisdom available to me for the purpose of healing and making whole all sentient beings who come to me for their mind, body, and soul’s needs.

None of us can achieve success without some help along the way. Was there a particular person who you feel gave you the most help or encouragement to be who you are today? Can you share a story about that?

Throughout my entire career in fitness and weight loss I had always wanted a mentor but never had one. What I did have was my prayers and I had an internal “mission” or calling. I have always wanted to help people heal, become and stay well, help them rise to their goals attainment, and then help them maintain that level of health and fitness. Honestly, it was our Lord God Almighty and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that became my mentors, literally asking me to set the science of my business aside and listen to their thoughts of how people could be healing, losing weight, or living a happier life.

On a human level, I attribute much of my recent success to my friend of twenty years and now business partner, Julie Spagnolo. We collaborate and we figure out solutions to the problems of having a spiritual business in this age of digital businesses and uncaring practices.

Can you share the funniest or most interesting mistake that occurred to you in the course of your career? What lesson or take away did you learn from that?

Believing that the science of fitness or weight loss was the only way to empower people to finally be fit and healthy. Or that healing could come from any other source than God or our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Is there a particular book that made a significant impact on you? Can you share a story or explain why it resonated with you so much?

The book that seriously impacted me, as it was a confirmation of something I had thought for a long time but was then proven scientifically, was How God Changes Your Brain by Andrew Newberg M.D. and Mark Robert Waldman. I had experienced people changing on my healing table as they experienced a sense of peace they could only relate as a “God moment” or blessing.

The other book is the Bible, as I have always prayed for my family, my clients, and friends’ wellbeing since I was a teenager. Also The Books of Enoch by Joseph B. Lumpkin. When I started channeling the angel Metatron’s messages, he asked me to read this book. It was from this I realized the origins of so many things that happened in the Bible. It gave me perspective on angels, heaven, and the origins of the Bible that awed me.

Can you share your favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Why does that resonate with you so much?

“Let God’s Will be done.” I have always accepted that perhaps I don’t have the perfect plan, but I do know that God’s Will is always the best plan. Now, after thirty years of trying to plan my life on my own, I can see a huge difference.

What are some of the most interesting or exciting projects you are working on now? How do you think that might help people?

I’m working on a new weight loss workshop coming soon. This workshop is different as I will not focus on diet, exercise, calorie counting, or magic pills. I will be focusing on peace within the soul of the limbic brain through God’s Will. I’ve studied and worked with hundreds of people over the years, helping them lose weight only for them to gain it back again after a year or so. This workshop is a paradigm shift in how to access our soul’s wisdom to lose weight through guided meditations. They are designed to open your soul to God’s mind-body language, and apply that wisdom to live your life the way God has always intended.

Popular weight loss practices would have you believe that you are ignorant or powerless without their product or service or program. I want to stop that myth-binding idea and perpetuate an entirely new view of weight gain and loss through the power of prayer and insightful meditations that allow people’s wills to align with God’s Will for all people’s health on earth.

When I created the first meditations for weight loss, people who started listening to my meditations immediately recognized their disinterest in sugar, deliberately started avoiding dairy, and found that they forgot about their habit of binge eating before bed. There was a change from deep within their souls that was a natural desire to do what was perfect for each person to lose weight (gracefully and without any interventions). Whatever their vices were, they were not engaged with them any longer and preferred to feel connected to their soul’s through these meditations and prayers.

OK, thank you for all of that. Let’s now shift to the core focus of our interview. In this interview series we’d like to discuss cultivating wellness habits in four areas of our lives: Mental wellness, Physical wellness, Emotional wellness, & Spiritual wellness. Let’s dive deeper into these together. Based on your research or experience, can you share with our readers three good habits that can lead to optimum mental wellness? Please share a story or example for each.

I have studied and researched the mind, body, soul, and spirit complex for the past thirty years. Now, however, after years of study and research about the human mind, body, soul, and spirit connection, I realize we can’t separate out anything or study each area independently from the other areas: the soul has to be involved. We all talk about the latest of scientific everything but neglect our souls, despite us all acknowledging that we have them. At first, I found it difficult for me to address such a personal issue regarding weight gain, but it kept coming up as a vitally important element to include in my programs and suggestions.

Reviewing and reflecting on the health of the soul was the best way I found to positively impact all things mentally, emotionally, and physically. There aren’t three best habits for mental health and wellbeing however there are millions of ways to speak to our ability to feel safe, acknowledged, accepted, confident, loved, heard, inspired, and connected with our source which is God. These are the things that perpetuate mental wellness.

If we acknowledge our souls in these ways, we are then able to see the trickle down effect from our souls through our minds. We see how it brings the peace and clarity we need to focus on the more positive aspects of our lives, how those revelations improve our emotional status, and how our emotions can promote perfect neuro-chemical balance. This affects our physical bodies in the best, most natural ways possible and brings us the most auspicious sense of mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellness one can create on their own.

Do you have a specific type of meditation practice or Yoga practice that you have found helpful? We’d love to hear about it.

I love to enter an Alpha or Theta state when I listen to my own meditation tracks for weight health, which can be found on my website. I created them from transmissions from my archangels Raphael and Metatron and set them to binaural beats to make it easier for listeners to open to our Lord God Almighty’s Will for each of us in our souls regarding weight loss and making peace with weight health. It has been a paradigm changing tool for those looking to lose weight.

Thank you for that. Can you share three good habits that can lead to optimum physical wellness? Please share a story or example for each.

I feel we all need to better understand where optimum emotional, physical and spiritual wellness originates from and then allow for good habits to grow and develop out of that understanding on an individual basis. In order for us to be and express optimum physical wellness we have to first reconnect our conscious awareness to our soul’s needs. This takes acknowledgement of what makes us feel good about ourselves as well as what we can contribute to our families, our lives, and communities. It also requires acknowledging the origination of our souls and our relationship to God. Why do I approach physical or even emotional wellness through our spiritual relationship to our souls and our Lord God Almighty? Because we cannot have a physical body without a soul, and we cannot have a soul without God. If we were all to acknowledge that point first, and only that point, we would already be well on our way to optimum physical wellness.

This was made evident to me every time I coached a client for weight loss, strength, or endurance training. People were concerned about a physical issue they had and had no control over unless they entered into a structured physical program. However, the moment the program ended they would return to their previously unwell state. For example, trying to eat less than 1300 calories a day to lose weight based on the science of wellness is actually going to backfire once the soul figures out that its life sustenance is being threatened.

Do you have any particular thoughts about healthy eating? We all know that it’s important to eat more vegetables, eat less sugar, etc. But while we know it intellectually, it’s often difficult to put it into practice and make it a part of our daily habits. In your opinion what are the main blockages that prevent us from taking the information that we all know, and integrating it into our lives?

I studied this very thought for years as a NASM Behavior Specialist and as an earnest personal trainer seeking answers to these eternal questions. Even with all of that information, and a study I created about how the mind and body react to newer therapies to overcome this very problem, I found the science of what I had learned and applied to be insufficient in gracefully changing behavior for health reasons.

The reason why people find it difficult to attain a certain level of adherence to newer, healthier habits is because those new habits have nothing to do with the soul’s will being done. When we seek to create changes, even the least offensive, the soul of the limbic brain acknowledges any changes as a threat to the person’s survival. When this happens, our limbic brain seeks to recreate a state of homeostasis by reinforcing the need for more of the wrong things (this inevitably creates a stress response from the internal organs like the thyroid and pancreas). This is then observed by the person as a regaining of weight, reinstitution of old behaviors and habits, and it creates a negative diatribe of thoughts pertaining to this very issue. In short, it prevents future successes and creates a history of failures.

This highlights the fact that we are not taught nor are we cognizant of our ability to access our soul’s wisdom, which then brings more safe, worthwhile and doable changes into view. Therefore, we are doomed to failure when trying any new diet or exercise program unless we address these things in our souls first.

Can you share three good habits that can lead to optimum emotional wellness? Please share a story or example for each.

Emotional wellness exists to create a sense of dichotomous destruction of the evils of our own minds. We exist to perpetuate a sense of wellbeing of kindness and loving kindness. At the same time, we often offer up our soul for the consumption of those who love and need us most. So, while we want to be kind and loving for others (in the form of having relationships or building families), we often do it at the expense of our emotional/soul wellness. Being kind to ourselves, as well as others and all mankind, is the key to optimum emotional and soul wellness. Again, we need to evaluate and access our soul to be advised of the best way for us to personally find emotional wellness. Someone suffering from anxiety in a city environment is going to need something very different than someone in rural Alabama who is depressed over the loss of a loved one. When you do seek your soul’s guidance you will usually get a very clear picture of what you personally need to feel joyful, fulfilled, loving, and peaceful.

Do you have any particular thoughts about the power of smiling to improve emotional wellness? We’d love to hear it.

We believe that our soul’s essence is transmitted through our smiles yet we can’t begin to imagine a life without a frown either. We have to put things into perspective and appreciate our abilities to engage with others in just this way: to emote our wellness towards others. In essence, our smiles give us the ability to heal another’s heart and bring peace to others. We can create a sense of emotional wellness through our ability to smile which will inherently improve neural pathway functioning.

Finally, can you share three good habits that can lead to optimum spiritual wellness? Please share a story or example for each.

I have found the most fulfilling practice for me, personally, would be to listen to my soul wisdom and that of my Father in heaven’s Will. If I am feeling less fulfilled, depressed, or out of touch with our Father in heaven, then I seek a quiet space in nature for a time to reflect on and count my blessings. This works for me and has for many, I am certain.

If you find yourself struggling with spiritual wellness you might consider finding inspirational music. I struggled until I was guided to listen to a song online called “So Will I” by Hillsong. Listening to this song has become one of my spiritual practices now, in addition to praying.

For others, you might feel moved at a spiritual holiday service, as one of my clients did. When I gave her a soul session, she broke down in tears. Her soul’s yearning was for more of a connection with God through her community. Our Father in heaven spoke to her of her need to feel the prayers through her singing of them in Hebrew. This was an entirely new revelation for her. Now she is taking Hebrew lessons and beginning to use her voice to resonate her soul’s worth through the singing of her Jewish prayers.

I would also try to create a sacred space you can retire to any time you feel the need to reflect on God’s Will in your life. Or meditate on one of my meditations that will align your soul with His will in mind.

Do you have any particular thoughts about how being “in nature” can help us to cultivate spiritual wellness?

Obviously all of nature was created by God, our Father in heaven. All natural environments have a naturally healing quality from the oxygen provided by the leaves on the trees to the detoxifying waters and earth. We have all been blessed as our Father in heaven broke open the hearts of all mankind by giving us the soft scented flowers, beautiful sunsets, majestic mountain tops, flowing rivers and the eternal processes of rebirth and renewal. I go back to the song, “So Will I,” and suggest you do too to understand how moving all of nature truly is. We will always be forever reminded of the Grace of God’s Will on earth as He has created heaven here for us to experience daily.

Ok, we are nearly done. You are a person of great influence. If you could inspire a movement that would bring the most amount of good for the greatest number of people, what would that be? You never know what your idea can trigger.

I would like to reiterate the importance of caring for our souls. We should all recognize our soul’s worth as a real and visceral part of us. That is, we should recognize what it is to be a human with purpose, with gifts and talents, and the ability to positively impact both our life and others with true unconditional love.

Also, I would like people to have more prayer in their daily life. More specifically, to pray in ways that convey our soul’s worth and make it meaningful to our minds, bodies, and spirits. But to also pray in front of places that are vulnerable to evils, like those who have random acts of violence perpetrated against them and their inhabitants. We should use prayer as a way of protecting our own soul and others, the way God would have us do so.

We are very blessed that some of the biggest names in Business, VC funding, Sports, and Entertainment read this column. Is there a person in the world, or in the US, whom you would love to have a private breakfast or lunch with, and why? He or she might just see this, especially if we both tag them 🙂

I’d love to meet Benjamin Hastings of Hillsong, but I’d also love to meet The Pope, Oprah, Deepak Chopra, and Joel Osteen.
