About Us

Wondering who is behind Hug your Chaos? It’s Lindsay and Chris of Life Warrior – The Art of Being Human. Come and meet us!

How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become healers and Life Excellence Gurus?

hug your chaosTo answer this question, it’s probably best that we share with you a defining moment, and the resulting story that brought us to where we are today – guiding people searching for “that something more” as they leave disconnection, discontent, and the “not quite right” behind and find abundance, life mastery, and peace.

That defining moment in our lives happened in 2015, but let’s recap on what brought us to that point.

Lindsay carried an overwhelming fear of people all throughout her childhood. Life was like nails on a chalkboard. She was often disconnected and anxious, often felt misunderstood. Her solution for this? Perfectionism. Surely that would bring about the love she sought. Her family never talked about emotions, and therefore she didn’t learn to process them. In hindsight, she realizes she was carrying the emotional weight and baggage of many, many others. And through it all, she never ever spoke up. As many empaths do, she turned to drugs. It got pretty bad, pretty fast. Our Lindsay has always been a “take it all” kind of girl. Balls to the wall. All or nothing. This devolved into homelessness and full-blown addiction.

She found her way from one “treatment center” to the next, one method to another but it never worked. The bitterness and confusion never left. At 25, she was diagnosed with lymphoma which caused even more anger and irritability. She was pissed about losing her hair, pissed about not being able to ask for help, and just generally pissed about being sick.

Lindsay Carricarte-JonesSo, she set out on a soul journey, traveling and seeking answers. And although she learned a lot during that time, her addiction soon returned. Things went from bad to worse, and as she puts it “she didn’t give a shit about living.” But again she attempted to heal and repair her life again.

At the age of 33, she flipped the switch. She dove into books and started a regular meditation, yoga, and breathing practice. She leaned heavily on these modalities and service work to others. She freed herself from the horrors of the restaurant industry and sought out a better path. She found writing and her manifesting powers. She opened herself to the possibility of finding a partner who would understand her and connect with her deeply. And then, one day, she found a motivational post on Facebook. Three months later, she was on a plane to Australia to spend the summer with the author of the post – Chris.

From a very early age, Chris was also discontent. He hated the world around him, and couldn’t make sense of it. He asked big questions, some that scared his parents. “How do we know that our dreams aren’t our real life and our waking life isn’t a horrible dream?” His family doctor gave him a quick reply but when he pushed back on him, he gave Chris advice that changed his life. “Start meditating and find your own answers.

And so, after leaving school he found his way to a Buddhist monastery, spending 6 months with the monks. Soon after leaving monastery, he enlisted into the Australian Army and was deployed as a rifleman. He returned lost in the world, again. Chris went into self-imposed exile, choosing his own growth and mind over the company of others including his family. His long-term battle against depression raged constantly.

Across his journey he sought out the teachings of many mentors who helped him expand his consciousness and skill-set. He did it all, from Alchemy in Melbourne to yoga teacher training in Fiji. From living and training in a mountain village in Northern Thailand to certifications in life coaching and a Bachelor’s Degree in Western Herbal Medicine. One day along the South Coast of Australia it all came to a head, when he had a complete breakdown. Screaming in his van, he knew something had to change. He drove to jagged cliffs of the Great Ocean Road and gave God an ultimatum. “If I have a purpose, bring me back.”

And he jumped.

The freezing current tossed him around and he found himself looking for help on the cliffs. He felt that God had answered, that He was done with Chris. He surrendered and fell beneath the water. In that moment, he found complete peace. And once he did, he somehow found himself back on shore. Two months later he posted an honest, transparent, authentic post about his journey and struggles. Someone commented, “You’re beautiful.” It was Lindsay.

And this is where the magic starts and these two seekers became Lindsay and Chris… us.

Although it wasn’t always easy, the beginning was tumultuous. We had both been working so hard on ourselves, we were raw and open and prone to being triggered. We could trigger each other with ease. It got so bad that one night Lindsay threatened to leave. Chris’ response?

Throw all her belongings in the ocean.

“Each of us had to bring about massive healing for ourselves in order for our relationship to work. We’ve tackled insecurities, trust issues, jealousy, co-dependence, over-assertiveness, and communication blocks.” Chris admits that he may have called Lindsay a hood rat once or twice. “We often had to work on our anger – this was massive for us. But through it all, we both knew we were here to help people. We’ve known this our whole lives, and coming together shows us that even more. With each other we find our power and abilities, the direction and purpose of the hero’s journey that we walk separately and together.”

We are dedicated to the pursuit of fun, even when Chris is crying or Lindsay is raging. We refuse to hide our struggles, to push them under the rug and project a pretty picture. We thrive in the messy, emotional, and real. They don’t need to be destructive. In short, we hug our chaos.

We continue on our joint human experience and have started teaching others how they can do the same: we love watching others free themselves from reactivity!

We have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of our professional lives to helping others plant the seeds of self-love and free themselves from habits that no longer serve them. To learn that it’s ok to feel ok, no matter what is happening around them. (And for that matter, it’s ok not to feel ok too.)

We’ve worked with many private clients, spoken in front of countless groups: We live our dream of driving our RV around the wild places of America, sailing our 44 foot Cutter rigged Masthead sloop on the various oceans of the world, collaborating with friends around the globe, and healing the world with our blend of coaching and ancient wisdom. All the while guiding others to their own life of fulfillment and empowerment; and we have created Abundant Life Mastery™, a 90 day program that re-establishes the fundamental relationships we have with the world around us, takes us back to our many blocks, removes them and finally teaches us how to find where we are on the map and empowers us to move towards it. Every person searching for “that something more” and wanting to gain total self mastery and an empowering sense of deep fulfillment needs to apply so as to REALLY start living the life you deserve!

Who are your clients?

We work with people just like you who are searching for “that something more” in life as they leave disconnection, discontent, and the “not quite right” behind in order to find abundance, life mastery, empowerment and peace. Our specific niche:

  • 30 to 45 year old professionals that “have it all” except for that one thing that is missing from life!
  • 30 to 45 year olds who are ready to break free from the chains of what life “should” look like in order to walk their authentic life path.
  • Seekers of abundant life mastery and self empowerment.
  • Those who are ready to make a massive life shift but doesn’t know where to start.
  • Those who are tired of living ensnared by their shadows and are ready to face fear and hug their chaos in order to live in magic, authenticity and abundance.

What makes you different from other Healers & Life Excellence Gurus?

coaching Hug your ChaosAlthough we will occasionally touch upon time management and other life skill types of things, most of the people we work with are already good with this. Why reinvent the wheel? When you work with us, you have us both as guides to your own personal, deepest healing and Heart Path living. We don’t waste time teaching you what you already know and have dialed in. We work on the inner and outer principles for healing and life empowerment and look at your life and your current level of overall happiness and serenity from an organic and spiritual perspective.

What that means to you is that you get not one, but TWO, wise-guru-meets-kick-ASS authentic healing and empowerment coaches. We’re personally very spiritually disciplined and we don’t pretend to hide it either. We practice what we preach and we are badasses at it. Because we’re not very delicate, you’ll always get a straight to the point quick and honest response from us. We WANT to empower you. We want what’s best for you on your journey down the path that aligns with your heart.

We’re concerned with how to get your personal life to a place where you feel empowered, free, balanced, integrated, and in charge of where you are going on your heart path. We guide you to the place where you become a conscious co-creator of your life. You may not always like what we have to tell you – but you can be sure we will always tell you the truth. The truth about what’s standing in the way of your freedom and empowerment and how to get rid of it FAST, so you can start getting results in record time (and we throw in a healthy dose of humor and inspiration, which always helps!). We love to laugh at ourselves, and you will too by the time you’re done with us.

What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?

The Abundant Life Mastery workshops, products and programs were created for people who are absolutely excited and dead set serious about taking their power back in order to become conscious co-creators of their own realities. In other words, those who want to manifest a life beyond their wildest dreams, where they stand in their own authentic truth, aligned with their heart path, and free from the inner narrative that used to hold them back. It means not running around all day long, beating yourself up anymore saying: “I’m not good enough, I’m not worthy, I’m afraid, what if I fail?”

Our programs were created for you to put systems in place within a few months (sometimes weeks!), which will eventually lead you to authentic living, empowerment, freedom, and emotional balance. In other words, living a life that fills you up on a deep heart and soul level.

Being that we are both go-getter, take no prisoner types ourselves, we’re known to work best with other go-getter, take no prisoner type people who are committed to their success no matter what, who are super-ready to get going and just want to know exactly what steps to take to live in a state of abundant life mastery. Our clients often tell us – “just tell me what to do and where to start and I’ll do it!”

Consider what you’ll do with us to be a high-octane crash course on everything you need to know to become a conscious co-creator of your life. You will be expected to take serious and consistent action. No excuses anymore, just a very different way of thinking and full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal:

Balance, abundance, and a life that aligns with your own true heart path thus filling you with happiness, contentment, and love.

For what type of professionals are your programs NOT going to work?

Please know that based on the nature of what we offer and the depths of ourselves we pour into those we work with, we’re very selective and we cherry-pick our clients. We choose to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for our programs and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up and paid for. (It wouldn’t be fair to them.)

The Abundant Life Mastery systems are NOT for those who have no money coming in and are absolutely, financially desperate, at least not right away. It’s been our experience after giving our programs at no cost to those that were in financial dire straits, that such people do not trust the recommendations we give them and do not take seriously the work necessary to make the changes. If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been in times of financial crisis at one point or another.

Do yourself four favors:

  1. Get some positive cash flow with a full-time or part-time job at the very least. This will take the edge off financially and provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly, it will de-clutter and de-stress your mind enough to focus on your Abundant Life Mastery assignments and the BIG picture.
  2. Sign up for our free blog here:  The wisdom will create a “mind shift” and get you started towards your goals until you’re ready to work with us one-on-one.
  3. Make a point to read the “Hug Your Chaos” weekly tip in our e-zine. The tips are sent every week and will give you LOTS to think about.
  4. Join our Facebook Page and Group. Become interactive with others.

Doing these four things will really help you get primed for our work. When you’re ready, call us and we’ll get you started. (We’re in no rush and will be here when you need us. This is, after all, our life’s calling!) Another type of personalities we won’t work with (without exception) are the chronic whiners and skeptics, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for not getting their assignments done or challenging every aspect of the program.

If you are still buying your own limitations or other bullshit, you have work to do before you’re even ready for us! If you are one of these people, we respectfully ask that you sign up for the weekly email, join the Facebook page and group and begin to shift your internal dialog and patterns. Although we are miracle workers, if you don’t want to meet us in the middle we can’t really help you. We’ll probably just not work well together and we wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair?

What exactly is the Abundant Life Mastery™ system and what does it include?

Abundant Life Mastery begins with re-connecting you to the most fundamental relationships you have with yourself and the world around you. You grow in the understanding of your true value and where your power really comes from. How to manifest what you want (including more money), learning to create powerful intentions that get you results as well as the inner processes to powerfully heal what needs to be healed within you so that you may stop holding yourself back with the self limiting inner narratives and self doubt. Here’s what the System gets you to do:

  1. Set your intentions

We examine where you are in your life and get CRYSTAL clear about your intentions, what you want to experience in your personal life and what aligns with your heart path. Before you can manifest what you want you have to KNOW what you want! You’ll learn the difference between setting goals and intentions, the biggest mistakes people make when trying to apply the law of attraction to their life and pave the way for your abundant life to open out in front of you.

  1. Create Your Ideal Life Map

Together we’ll find out exactly what your ideal life looks like. Too often, we work with people who know they want more in life, but have no idea what exactly “the more” looks like. What do you love to be doing, what do you need more of in your life, what you need less of in your life, and we’ll really drill down to what inner blocks are standing in between you and your authentic truth of abundant living.

  1. Find where you are on your map

There is absolutely no point in having a map if you don’t know where your starting point is. So much of the time we hear “I just don’t know where to begin…”

  1. Release Your Inner Resistance

Mostly you might already know what’s missing or what you need to be doing in your life, but yet are still struggling with procrastination, feeling stuck in fear and spinning in circles. You’ll be learning proven techniques to identify and break through your inner resistance, self doubt, fear, anxiety, inner narratives, and all of that “stuff” that keep you playing small so that you can begin taking actions to create and sustain abundant life mastery.

  1. Re-establish and Forge Connection

99% of the time the root of the problem is disconnection. Our society breeds disconnected living, and individually this manifests in various behavioral, emotional, and physical problems for many of us. We help you identify these areas and then forge re-connection with the most important element of Abundant Life Mastery – you and your higher self – in order to get you living your own authentic heart path.

  1. Physical, Energetic, and Emotional Healing and Balance

Here we will guide you deep into the energetic roots of your physical and emotional problems. Through identification of the root cause at an energetic level, we often find that emotional and physical problems relieve themselves. Through work with the seven main chakras we help you to identify, acknowledge, accept, heal, and release the blockages and stagnant wounds that have been holding you back and blocking you from abundant life mastery. We will also help you design a holistic plan for physical health and exercise that is sustainable for your lifestyle.

  1. Redefining Relationships

Life is all about relationships – with ourselves, others, objects, career, the Divine, nature, etc. Anything we interact with becomes a relationship. This is where we assist you in assessing where you practice healthy relationships and where you don’t. But we don’t stop there! We also engage you to explore how you can redefine your relationships with the most fundamental aspects of life. By starting at the most basic level, we help you establish a solid foundation for all of your relationships to flourish in abundance.

  1. Create a belief system that aligns with who you are TODAY!

Together we will explore what your current beliefs are and where they came from. Why do you believe what you believe? Belief systems come from somewhere, usually our families, friends, and society. The kicker is that we tend to hold on to certain beliefs, that we picked up throughout life, which no longer serve us or align with who we are today. We help you in identifying which of these are dead weight in order to create space where you will write a NEW and EMPOWERED belief system. One that encourages Abundant Life Mastery instead of fear and scarcity.

  1. Connect with your own Divinity so that you can become a conscious co-creator of your life

We are all creating our own stories as we move through life. This is a fact. What is also fact is that if we are not consciously co-creating these stories, we are subconsciously creating them. When we act from a place of subconscious creation, more often than not we are using old filters and patterns of thought that no longer serve us. In working through Abundant Life Mastery, we teach you how to make the shift from subconscious fear based stories to empowered conscious co-creation.

  1. Take the power back in your life

Too often in life, we hand our own power over to life and everyone in it. We’ll look at where you give your power away; at your energy leaks. Is it emotional? Physical? Are you stuck in victim mindset as a hostage of the Universal powers that be? Are you a prisoner of your fear and your inner monologues? We help you to discover and identify these areas and then teach you how to take your power back.

Does this really work?

Yes! The result of our work is an approach to shifting your mindset and empowering you to stand in your own authentic truth so that your life can become a reflection of your own beautiful authentic self. Don’t just take our word for it though. See what some of our other clients have said:

Can I contact some of your former clients to see what it’s like to work with you?

Yes, I encourage you to! Please go to the Client Testimonials page and read all of them. See which ones you feel drawn to, either because the person has gotten the results you want to get too, or perhaps because that person is in a similar situation. Then feel free to email or call them and ask what they got from working with us and our programs.

How quickly can I expect results?

That depends on how quickly you can make those inner shifts. Some of our clients are ready to go and start seeing massive shifts in their perspective in a very short time frame, sometimes even a few weeks while others have a bit more work to do initially. It also depends on how much time, dedication, and energy you are willing to put in. We can’t do the work for you. The more disciplined, consistent, and dedicated you are, the faster you will see results.

How can I guarantee myself that I will get more empowerment, authenticity, and abundance in record time?

Do all of your homework. Be present and accountable. Be totally committed to your success. Understand that this is a process, a proven one, that works if you take action and implement all of the steps we offer you. All of our clients who have diligently applied every step of the Abundant Life Mastery program have successfully healed and empowered their lives, in much less time than they would have on their own. They’ve ALSO tapped into their own unique version of authentic living, happiness, and success.
