What inspired me to become a professional coach and
to found Quantum Thinking?
Hi, I am Claudia Velandia.
In 2010, like many of us, I found my rock bottom. I was just going through the motions. I didn't like what I was doing with my life and where it was heading. I felt without purpose and meaning. I was looking to escape from my mind and my emotions; I wanted to run away from my life. I found outlets in going out drinking, finding validation in serial dating and getting distracted with work. Those behaviours were my way of self-medicating, and they became increasingly self-destructive. But all they did was deepening my suffering.
I recall asking myself many times, "Is this what life is about? What am I doing here? And more importantly, what am I doing with my life?"
My pain was so strong that I decided to find a way to get out of what I was experiencing. In order to do that, I read and read and watched everything possible to dig myself out. I decided to take ownership of my life, work on myself and look within. With determination, I changed those aspects of me I didn't like. I chose to start living a healthy lifestyle, taking care of my body, my mind, my heart and my soul, aligning all those aspects of me to shed off my limitations and lead a more fulfilling life. I opened the connection with my spiritual path.
Throughout my own journey, I became aware that I was suffering even more than I originally thought.
I was so busy going through the motions that I didn't even realize it was happening. I was identifying myself with the behaviours of society, and my way of living mirrored those behaviours. I was hustling, often distracted, and feeling stressed, worried, and guilty. I was chasing what I was conditioned to believe was a success, thinking this would make me happy and fulfilled. I thought it was normal—I saw everyone in the same boat, and I didn't know any other way.
Now that I came out from my rock bottom, I can recognize how all of it was created in my mind. I was living as if on autopilot. I also began to observe that individuals are suffering because they are living so much in their minds without even being aware of it. They are also limiting their potential and negatively affecting their well-being as they continue living from a conditioned perspective. In essence, they are in the box, thinking that this is all there is to life.
During my time in the corporate environment, as I was going through my inner journey, my views started to change as well.
I observed how leaders are using fear-based techniques. They lack self-governance, self-awareness and emotional intelligence. Leaders who use fear and who do not understand what governs their decisions do not perform well and their teams consequently suffer as well. Their outdated approaches are limiting our society and affecting our global well-being.
My reflections and transformation inspired me to go back to school and become a Certified Conscious Leadership Coach and the founder of Quantum Thinking. It also inspired me to write my book, Wake Up! How to Get Out of Your Mind, Stop Living on Autopilot and Start Choosing Your Best Life.
Why do I do what I do?
Because I'm inspired to inspire people to connect and align with their souls so that they can experience life fully, without limitations, and together contribute to the well-being of the world.
A little more about me
I was born in Colombia, I studied mechatronics engineering. I lived in Spain for four years where I pursued my MBA and MA, and also part of my career. After an intra-company transfer to Canada, I have made this country home, and now I live in Calgary.
My personal experiences, curiosity about the human mind, higher consciousness and corporate experience have equipped me with an understanding of the human psyche essential to my work.
Before founding Quantum Thinking, I developed a successful international career, working for renowned global technology companies in demanding, highly competitive environments.
I love spending time in nature and having quality time with myself. My favourite sport is cross-country skiing followed by train running and cycling. Working on myself and working on my spiritual path is essential to me. I continue expanding and connecting even more with my True Nature. I'm allowing the flow of life.

My Model of Authentic fullfilment and Success
You can quantum align all the parts of yourself—body, mind, heart, and soul—and, from this oneness, start experiencing your life in its flow, without limitations, and expressing yourself in your full consciousness.
When you nourish all these parts of you, you will evolve, quantum leaping your thinking and going beyond your conditioning into a conscious way of living, where you will find greater well-being, love, happiness, and purpose.
Your body is the vehicle through which you are experiencing life. It is essential that you nourish it, exercise it, respect it, and provide it with all that it needs to maintain its health and vitality.
Your mind’s power becomes apparent only when you are consciously directing it. The creation and the quality of your life is a reflection of your thought patterns. The emotions you experience are also a mirror of your thoughts. Without managing your thoughts and emotions, you will only react to life’s circumstances instead of proactively navigating them.
It is your passion. It guides you to fulfill your life’s purpose, and with this guidance you can lead your mind. Your heart shows you the path to experiencing life in a new state of calm, happiness, and love. Your heart invites you to prioritize the things that make you happy and that bring light to your life and embrace kindness, compassion and connection.
It is the truth of who you are. It is your connection to a greater purpose. As you go about your life in alignment with your soul, you see everything as an opportunity to learn and continue with your evolution. Your soul will take you to discover the unknown, the possible, and things your mind hasn’t yet conceived of.
