Member of the Month: Kylie Kerik- Navigating Authenticity

member spotlight Nov 16, 2021

The 5D Collective is filled with some incredible, passionate conscious humans and we're excited to be spotlighting them so you can learn more about the awesome folks you may meet at one of our monthly gatherings. November's Member of the Month is Kylie Kerik. 

1. Before we dive in, what’s your name, where are you based out of and how would you describe what you do? 

My name is Kylie, I am based out of Vancouver, BC. 
At the moment, I would describe what I do as synthesizing how to offer my gifts and skills to the world. I know I have something to share but have been challenged by what to call it, and how to offer it. Ultimately I can feel that it is something rooted in supporting others in rediscovering their authentic selves, which has a branch revolving around styling individuals in alignment with this newly discovered authenticity. 
2. How would your best friend describe you?  
My best friend would describe me as kind, compassionate, curious, and open-hearted. That I am dedicated to self-growth and learning, and that I am fearless in showing my authentic self to the world through my words and my style. That I have an ability to hear another's perspective defencelessly, so I can take it in and assess ways in which I can show up better, not only for myself but for those I surround myself with. And lastly, that I probably have anything you may need because I love being prepared and pride myself on being self-reliant, a Jill of all trades. 
3. What is the most rewarding part of your work?

Although I haven't fully stepped into this role yet, I have had the opportunity to hold space for others and leave them with words that I have later heard was the inspiration they needed to make changes in their life. Hearing the impact that my words and actions have on others has been the most rewarding part thus far. As a projector in human design, I am not aware of my own gifts and therefore need the input of others to help me see them. 

4. When did you join The Collective and how did you find out about it? 

I joined 5D in May 2021. I found it through 5D's in-house astrologer Court Burns (Bravely Beautiful), I attended one of her astrology sessions she put on through 5D and was introduced to the collective that way. Although I didn't have a business yet it seemed like a collective that would be beneficial in supporting me through the career pivot I could feel in my soul. 
5. Do you know your Sun/Moon/Rising?
Oh yes, I am a Taurus, with a Gemini moon, and Libra rising!
6. Do you know your Human Design profile?
I am a 6/2, Splenic Projector. 
7. What would the autobiography of your life be titled?  
Who am I? - A Never-ending Journey of Rediscovering Yourself
8. Can you share an unexpected lesson from your entrepreneurial journey?
As my journey is only just beginning, I am sure there are many more lessons to learn. So far its been how I will have moments where I think I have it figured out as to what I want to offer but then sit with it and realize that it doesn't feel right or authentic to me. This has taught me the value of trusting my intuition, trusting the process, and of having patience.
9. What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right. 
And my favourite advice/inspiration by Dr.Seuss "Today you are you, that is truer than true, there is no one alive who is youer than you" 
10. Who inspires you?
I feel like I am surrounded by inspiration, I am most inspired by my friends on many levels. This includes watching them grow to become a higher version of themselves in areas they want to change in their lives. Witnessing friends choose love and compassion over hurt and pain when faced with a challenging situation. I'm most inspired by being friends with people who are all about lifting each other up to be the best version of themselves and honouring them for the authentic person they are, which includes encouraging and supporting them to share their creativity and passions with the world.
