About The Sweet Awake

Nikki Pruss

In November of 2012, I quit my highly coveted job as a medical equipment sales representative. I hung up my undergraduate degree and my MBA, sublet my beautiful apartment and moved to a small town in the Dominican Republic. Here I started learning Spanish, became a Dive Master and began to unweave the web of my life that no longer served me.

I was secretly in a dark place for a lot of my life because I was resisting the part of me that I am embracing now. That resistance caused me a lot of stress, anxiety and anger. Unfortunately, I took it out on myself and those I loved the most and the harder I fought the truth the worse the impact was.

Unknowingly I began a journey that was bringing me back to my truest self, unmasking all the faces I put on over my lifetime. Over the subsequent years, a knowing, true unconditional love and a fire were ignited in me empowering me to finally follow my heart and remember the truth of who I am.

In January of 2017, I left my home in the U.S. on a pilgrimage where I have journeyed deep into myself, often through the hearts of others.  The Sweet Awake was envisioned from the desire to hold space for others. This desire stems from my personal experience with the struggles and beauty of awakening into my truth and purpose driven life. I have used each and every one of the methods I offer and have worked with other healers and by myself to heal and transform my own life. I have embraced my role as a catalyst to guide you back to your own truths. I created The Sweet Awake not to heal you, rather to reflect your own brilliance back to you when you have forgotten.

“My holiday to Thailand would not have been the same had I not have come across Nikki and her amazing talents.

Our sessions and talks inspired me to follow what I truly feel and to stop overthinking and over-planning.

I am definitely more content since meeting Nikki, she is a truly inspirational and talented soul and I can’t wait for our paths to cross again.” Jodie

“Nikki has journeyed through her own darkness, on her own, many times. Her spirit, her attitude and her willingness to work with others has become her life’s work and I couldn’t have more belief in her abilities than I do. I am blown away. She is the real deal, she lives what she shares with her clients and if you know her story there can be no doubt of the dark and the obstacles she has overcome and will subsequently help you through.”
