Nicole Costa is passionate about teaching and helping others heal themselves. Ever since she was a little, girl people would come seeking guidance. The introvert quietly observed everything around her, leaving her with a strong desire to be of some help to them.
Costa also felt a sense of responsibility to others for the trust they placed in her as she realized that these experiences were not as common to everyone else around her.
Costa is owner and lead practitioner at nextlevelholistics.com. She is a certified Holistic Health Care Practitioner of Traditional Chinese and Japanese Medicine and Nutrition. She is a certified Reiki Master and a Kripalu Yoga Teacher.
By traveling around the country, she has learned about organic agriculture and spiritual practices using a combination of food and herbs as medicine, as well as, energy work and meditation to better treat the whole person on every level: mind, body and spirit.
Costa’s greatest influences in her journey to entrepreneurship have been her personal health struggles physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Costa believes when trauma is experienced for long periods of time, it becomes easy to get caught up in a victim mentality. People tend to compare themselves to others and fall short. Looking inward teaches people to remember where they first started and appreciate how far they’ve come in the process of growth and healing. When they learn how to shift their perspectives, they can learn how to forgive not only others, but forgive themselves, and love themselves and the many aspects that make up who they truly are.
Sharing her special gifts brings Costa her greatest joy and passion in life.
Helping others realize whatever trials and tribulations they experience, it is possible to endure, overcome, heal, forgive and love again.
She believes people’s minds are the most powerful tools they possess, though malleable, they can be the hardest things to change. Wanting to change is the first step.
One of Costa’s favorite quotes is by Carl Jung states, “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”
