Niki Norlock is an internationally known author and filmmaker. She is also an inspiring figure who is not afraid to bravely share the personal too – including how she has transformed her life’s most arduous journeys into a captivating narrative of courage, resilience, and self-realization.
After a life marked by struggles with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and addiction – (she shares that this came as a result of childhood abuse) Norlock has emerged, phoenix like, as a beacon of strength and resilience. Her journey from the abyss of addiction and despair to the her position today, teaching others to find the same self-love and fulfillment she chronicled in her influential book, “Truth – My Synchromystic Journey”.
Niki spent years battling her inner demons, resorting to a myriad of anti-depressants to numb herself to the relentless pain that never seemed to ease. But even amidst the tantalizing throes of addiction and all that pain, Niki sought solace in self-care and therapeutical methods. From incorporating an anti-depressant routine to adopting yoga, meditation, singing, dancing and nutrition as weapons against her inner turmoil, eventually Niki learned to manage her health her own way. It was during this prolonged phase of introspection and self-discovery that Niki discovered a profound truth – making her health and well-being her top priority wasn’t selfish – rather, it was essential for survival.
Unveiling her own journey of despair and redemption, the book, originally written as a fiction piece, is now her frank confession about the relentless battles she fought within herself and the real people who held her afloat during her darkest times. The book serves as a sincere tribute to those souls and an assertion of her regained self-worth, her courage to not only choose to live but also love living.
A significant turning point in Niki’s life is encapsulated in her journey towards creating the book. Answering an inner calling, Niki left her life behind, venturing out to a foreign land to pen down her story. She embarked on an extra-ordinary journey, passionately writing all the while.
Apart from weaving her journey into words, Niki also translated her experiences into a visual narrative. She worked on the documentary “BEYOND STRENGTH,” exploring the inspiring journey of Filipino children living in a Metro Manila Children’s Home. The documentary revolves around the story of Daniel San Jose, a boy who dreamt of making a difference and inspiring others through his life in the face of adversity.
Today, Niki has adopted a life-encompassing well-being in all its dimensions. She prioritizes self-care and embraces numerous activities that help keep her serene yet vibrant spirit alive. Yoga, dancing, singing, and nature exploration are an integral part of her life now, along with long motorcycle rides down meandering roads.
Niki has also emerged as a vibrant social media personality, sharing her journey, learnings, and inspirational messages with a global audience over various platforms. A firm believer in self-love, Niki emphasizes, “Get comfortable with being uncomfortable… All those things combined is what allows me to continue to move forward despite the unique challenges I have faced along the way. Get to know yourself… take the time to figure out what you need to be happy and then chase that happiness down. Believe that you are worth it. I believe, all the answers we seek come from inside…”
Niki’s transformation from a life mired in struggle and pain to one of healing and growth is a testament to her tremendous grit and determination. Her book, documentary, and personal journey are profound examples of her remarkable strength, serving as an inspiration to those battling similar challenges.
Today, Niki embraces every stride she has made in her healing journey as precious. Hailed as the ‘year of healing,’ she cherishes every high and low from her past as invaluable experiences that have culminated in the strong, compassionate figure she is today.
Niki Norlock’s journey to reclaiming her life from the clutches of addiction and trauma, on her own terms, is a compelling story of strength, resilience, and self-love. It reminds her readers, followers, and admirers that it’s never too late to take charge of your life, choose happiness, and truly start living. A life no longer denied, indeed.
