Our Faces of the Enneagram series highlights the person we imagine when we are shopping for a specific Enneagram Type. Today, we are introducing our friend Ali who is one of the people we imagine when we are shopping for gifts for an Enneagram 9.
Ali is kindhearted, easygoing, reliable, encouraging, and someone who is always up for a fun time. She is a mama to a toddler, a Colorado photographer, and an overall beautiful human being. We’ve loved the times we’ve gotten to spend with her–she is, as our Enneagram Coffee friends would say, “the quiet forest filled with the smell of pine and morning air.”
It was Ali’s older brother introduced her to the Enneagram several years ago. He loaned her The Road Back to You by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile, and once she finished the book and took the test, she says she was totally hooked. Ali goes on to say, “I couldn’t believe how spot-on everything was and it was all so interesting. It’s been a journey of self-exploration since then.”
With a free day to do whatever she wants (no money/time limit) Ali’s dream day would be waking up next to her husband in a secluded cabin in the mountains somewhere. They’d enjoy a cup of coffee while taking in the views. Later, they’d venture off for a hiking, exploring, and a little photography. Afterwards, she says, they’d cook dinner as a family and spend the evening around the campfire roasting marshmallows and playing games.
Now, let’s hear from Ali as she shares a few of her favorite products that might inspire you when seeing, knowing, and celebrating an Enneagram 9 in your life.
A Comfy Robe. This robe is a staple in my wardrobe. It’s soo soft and cozy. You will not want to take it off.
I love this game because it’s not overly competitive (low risk of conflict… lol), but still fun for everyone.
Because, coffee. Need I say more? I love that I can make as many cups of coffee throughout the day as I need to.
A Wood-burning Candle. I love the way it crackles when it burns and smells like the woods.
Oh my goodness, this blanket is incredible. It’s perfect for a cozy night in. Just add Netflix & some popcorn.
We love Ali, and love seeing, knowing, and appreciating exactly who she is. She is just one of the Faces of the Enneagram we imagine when we are shopping for gifts for an Enneagram 9. Tell us about the Enneagram 9 in your life! We’d love to know him or her!
