Introduction to Om in Bloom
My name is Colleen, and this is an introduction to Om in Bloom. First and foremost, thank you for reading! Whether it was by accident or through some social media channel, I’m happy you’re here!
Om in Bloom is a California based lifestyle + wellness blog – but more so, a manifestation of my dreams of creating and living the conscious, holistic lifestyle of my dreams. I’m a certified Reiki practitioner and student herbalist (and digital maven in the moments in between). My all time real-life dream is to live a simple life in a loft atop my very own wellness studio – traveling, healing & loving, one in the same.
What I also adore is feeding the soul through good food, consciousness, and local inspiration. I love anything artistic – and this means a beautiful plate of food, a radical meditation practice, and the determination of the local cafe owner down the street. Anything with passion!
Conscious living is especially the important factor here. What do I mean when I say conscious living? I mean to really, well, be conscious. To be conscious is to simply be aware of what you do in life. It’s the way you think about things, the way you take action, the way you stay active in your life, your mind, and your body. It’s to be present, not passive. It’s the ability to break your routine, to do something creative, to indulge in the good food, to reflect on the now.
So what is the Om in Bloom blog about again?
Like I said earlier, it’s about feeding the soul. Om in Bloom is about holistic wellness. It’s about exploring endlessly. It’s about being in touch with the Mother Earth. It’s about grounding ourselves and taking hold of all that the world has to offer. Om in Bloom is about inspiring others and bringing creatives together through a sense of community and holistic bad-assery.
Whether it be sisterhood, brotherhood, genderfluid-hood, it’s about compassion and understanding. It’s about embracing passions, breaking routines, carpe-ing the shit out of that diem, and living consciously in a concrete world.
It’s About All The Good Feels
Sometimes I feel like quotes say volumes that I couldn’t explain myself. So here’s a few that just get me.
- “Don’t talk about it. Be about it.” ~ Bob Burns
- “You are under no obligation to be the same person you were five minutes ago. You have the right to grow. No apologies.” ~ unknown
- “As you start to walk out on the way, the way appears.” ~ Rumi
- “One day, you’re 17 and you’re planning for someday. And then quietly, without you ever really noticing, someday is today, and then someday is yesterday. This is your life.” ~ John Green
Well, that’s my blog in a nutshell! Me, myself – that’s a whole ‘nother story. Not so much a different one, though.

Cheers, to all the good feels you can ever imagine and to living the life you’ve always dreamed of. –
