Millana Snow Is Here To Help You Heal
Millana Snow is an energy healer and breathwork coach who founded WellnessOfficial.co, a platform that connects you with healers and practitioners as well as resources and content related to healing and empowerment. Millana recently shared a breathwork exercise with the Anser Instagram community, and we spoke to her about her self-care journey and her experience as a healer.
Anser: What was your experience of self-care growing up? How has it changed (if at all) since then?
Millana: Growing up, meditation, spirituality and connecting with nature was a way of life for me. It was my refuge and what was most familiar. I am so grateful that is my foundation as I have carried that into my life as an adult.
Anser: You’ve spoken in other interviews and on your own platforms about learning how to do breathwork meditation when you were a young girl - 4 or 5 years old. How has that practice impacted you throughout your life? What are the benefits of that kind of exercise?
Millana: I learned how to meditate and astral project when I was around the age of four, but didn’t learn breathwork until much later, perhaps around the age of 27 or 28.
To learn meditation astral projection at the age of four is a curious thing, I think when you’re that young you don’t have conditioning that keeps you from believing that you can do such a thing as leave your body and astral project. Also because meditation was some thing that I did for fun or as an escape, I don’t think I really understood the true value of it until I was much older. Later in my life, when I learned breathwork, it became one of the most profound practices in my life. I realize that I was able to go much deeper into meditation with breathwork and any other approach I’ve ever learned.
I also realized very quickly that breathwork meditation helped me to clear childhood trauma and to deepen my connection with my inner guidance and source within me.
Anser: What does an energy healer do? And who would you recommend seek the services of a practitioner like you?
Millana: I always say that energy healing is a big umbrella, under which which there are many lineages and approaches. In my approach to energy healing, I bring my clients into an hour-long session of breathwork and energy healing for a very deep session of clearing and moving through our own blocks, trauma and resistance into our natural state which is true peace and well-being. I believe that energy healing is meant to help us raise our consciousness and connect to source within us; from that state of being comes healing.

Anser: How do you, as a healer and practitioner who’s been on a spiritual journey for many many years, keep evolving spiritually? How can you keep tapping into spirituality to grow and heal and face new challenges in life, and even experience new dimensions of spirituality?
Millana: One thing that I believe we learn once we’ve been studying and practicing for many years is that we know nothing. And that the more that we learn, the more that we realize we are living in a mystery. My whole life has been inspired by evolving through healing. My soul came here to heal and help others heal themselves. In order to do that I believe that I must continue to be in a constant state of curiosity and humbly seek more awareness, healing and understanding. I don't know if always so humble (lol), but I definitely try because I know that I do not have it all figured out. When you keep seeking, this is an inevitable conclusion.
"My soul came here to heal and help others heal themselves."
Anser: Why did you decide to start your platform Wellness Official?
Millana: I had a company prior to Wellness Official that ended abruptly and painfully after bringing in two business partners to my company. It was from that experience, from the depths of what felt like at the time was failure, that I rediscovered why I wanted to bring wellness and healing to as many people as possible.
I was awakened by the pain of my experience to the memory that wellness, healing and spirituality no longer represented the diverse backgrounds of people from which so many of these modalities and practices came from. I realized that I could be the person who could help change that. I could be the bridge.

Wellness Official has been connecting healers behind the scenes for years, but it wasn’t until this year that we were able to really take that to the next level with our partners at Wordpress.
Anser: One of your new endeavors is The Daily Practice (TDP). What is TDP? Does it stem from your own personal daily practices?
Millana: TDP, otherwise known as The Daily Practice was something I actually started outside of WellnessOfficial.co this year that is my own offering on MillanaSnow.com. The Daily Practice is a monthly subscription that offers a growing library of practices that you can do every day in 15 minutes or less. We have practices for healing all seven main chakras, daily journal prompts and 40 days of hard meditation for prosperity with more to come. If you need self care and can’t always make the time or figure out how, TDP can be your guide.
Anser: How can people participate and what should they expect to experience?
Millana: You can sign up at MillanaSnow.com/daily-practice and you can get the first 7 days free, it’s just $9.99 a month after that. If you do one practice a day you will start to see within days that your life feels more fun and in the flow! Practice this for a full month and you’ll see that a truly beautiful life takes practice and intention… everyday. Like they say, you gotta “do the work” and TDP is a great way to start.
"Practice this for a full month and you’ll see that a truly beautiful life takes practice and intention… everyday."
Anser: I love this quote you posted on your Instagram: “We are all healers. Your only job is to get out of the way.” Can you expand on that? How do the practices involved in TDP help people achieve their own healing and become better healers to others?
Millana: One of my greatest missions is to remind people that they truly do have everything they need inside of them. I want people to know that every single one of us has a gift that gift is meant to not just benefit the world but to help us heal and truly know ourselves. I hope with my programs each opportunity can be a touch point to getting to know that aspect of you.
Anser: What is an essential self-care practice for you?
Millana: I have so many so I would say right now my main go to is taking a ritual bath. I have had some incredibly powerful breakthrough experiences mentally emotionally, spiritually and physically by taking a very intentional bath with crystals, oils, salts, affirmations, journaling and visualizations it can be a very powerful thing.
"I want people to know that every single one of us has a gift that gift is meant to not just benefit the world but to help us heal and truly know ourselves."
Anser: You do energy readings on your site each month. What is an energy reading exactly and is there anything our Anser community should know going into the holiday season?
Millana: I realized that each month I was able to pick up on the vibrational momentum of the collective experience and when I would look back I could see that energy readings were like a map for me to navigate the changing and unfolding times. I really believe that we can thrive even in what seems like utter chaos right now.
And I want people to know that that’s true no matter what’s happening in their lives no matter what’s happening right now, they can sync up into a new experience that is independently your own that is connected yet autonomously yours. We are being given a gift right now to allow ourselves to thrive in the chaos even when our own reality suggest that is not possible.
Anser: Anything else we should know about The Daily Practice or Wellness Official?
Millana: We have some very big plans in 2021 like to Energy Healing Training and Immersion sessions, a few online courses and new practitioners being added to Wellness Official with a calendar of events and practitioner sessions. I hope you will stay in touch and follow us that that you can be in the loop as everything expands.
