Perhaps you’ve seen Michelle Williams on YouTube, where she calls herself a 
“healing fairy.”

“A fairy,” she explained, “is a spirit which takes care of the earth and everything 
that lives on the earth, and protects it. A healing fairy also provides uplifting energy which 
makes people laugh,” she says with her broad infectious smile.

Williams spends time sharing her message on YouTube, with private counseling, at events in the 
Pasadena area, and at a local farmers market where she has a booth.

Born in Pasadena, Willliams 
was raised in Covina where 
she went to primary school. 
She earned a Bachelors degree 
in Dance at UC Riverside, 
and is certified with the 
Royal Academy of Dance 
and the Progressing Ballet 

She worked as a ballet teacher 
for five years. But she 
felt that she was in a narrow 
cycle of working, driving 
home, working, driving 
home, ad infinitum. And she 
also realized that she had a 
problem with anger.

To break out of her narrow 
cycle, she decided om 2016 
to attend swing dancing sessions 
in Pasadena. It was 
there that she met the love of 
her life, jazz musician Tommy 

Trujillo, who trained in macrobiotics 
in Japan, attempted 
to introduce Williams to the 
dietary lifestyle of macrobiotics [a word based on “macro” meaning “big,” and “bios” meaning 
“life”]. It’s an ancient lifestyle based on the philosophy of yin and yang, meant to bring balance, 
health, and harmony to those who observe its principles. 

“I wasn’t interested at first, because I was very sensitive to diet culture messages,” explained Williams, 
“and I told him I didn’t want to hear about it.”

Then, Trujillo gave Williams a copy of “The Hip Chick’s Guide to Macrobiotics.” “I was skeptical 
at first, but I started reading it,” she explains.

Williams points out that at this time, in 2016, she was still teaching dance and “it was very 
disheartening when my boss suggested to me that I lose weight! Well, I knew I was not eating 
healthy, but I was afraid of going back to my old disordered eating, so I went ahead and read 
the book. That book explained food to me in a way I’d never heard before. Remember, I had an 
eating disorder. I’d tried many diets in the past and gone to many nutritionists, but I knew I still 
wasn’t eating healthy. The Macrobiotic book moved me to begin eating healthy and even to think 
about my life in a different way,” explains Williams.

Her main dietary change was quite simple: she began to eat brown rice, with vegetables. “I slowly 
cut out sugar, eggs, meat, and dairy products, and the change to my state of mind and feeling of 
health was surprisingly profound,” says Williams.

Williams explains that she had also suffered from depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder, and 
drugs given to her by her doctors did no good. She was taking many medications which she 
stopped as of 2014, and – with the addition of brown rice and vegetables – noted that she no 
longer felt depressed, and noted to her surprise one day that she was no longer experiencing road 
rage. “One day, when I normally would have been in a rage on the freeway, I realized I was calm. 
I thought, This is new! And all I did differently was to eat whole grain rice!”

Today, as the Healing Fairy, Williams shares the science underlying her new-found perspective 
with her Patreon fans on Youtube. Find her at

“I deal with topics like healthy food, astrology, our connection to nature, and good health,” she 
explains with a big smile. “The main thread to my program is the concept of energy. Everything 
is made from energy and there are a lot of different types of energy. Everything is moving energy, 
and when we understand that, we have a better understanding of ourself and our world. It 
allows us to realize that things will not always be bad,” she explains. Too many of us, according 
to Williams, are too caught up in only our personal issues, or, on the other side, caught up only 
in external things that are not personal. Williams hopes to bring balance to our thinking, and 
helping her followers to overcome their fears.

She points out that the things we fear in life are very often just a reflection of our own thinking. 
“And we need to do a bit more than just improve our thinking,” adds Williams, “we can also do 
something very simple like improving what we put into our bodies. We can revolutionize our 
view of ourselves and our world simply by eating whole grains and vegetables,” she smiles.
