How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become an Intuitive Transformational Coach, Goddess Educator, Energy Worker, and Relationship Repair Coach?
To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment, and a resulting “compelling story”, that brought me to where I am today. Coaching women like you on exactly what to do to leave behind old beliefs, blocked energy; regain self-confidence, access and trust their intuition, and tap into the goddess within them to live an empowered, joyful life of love, confidence and embracing who they are.
That defining moment in my life happened in 2014.
Throughout my life, I never let my inner goddess die, even though, at times I felt lost and defeated.
I have actually had a few defining moments in my life, where I had to find the strength within myself, surviving or speaking my truth.
In 2014 I was in a marriage that was falling apart. Working, raising four kids and keeping life together was not good enough for this man. Nothing was ever good enough. I loved the idea of being married, but not at the expense of losing myself. I was so busy trying to please husband #3, I put myself on a five-year diet so I would live up to the image of “thin” he had in his mind. It was bringing up all the past issues that I struggled to get over, I started to feel the resentment and bitterness burn inside me. Of course, no one else knew – I wouldn’t let them. To the outside world, we looked fine. One night, he’s looking at my body, evaluating and disapprovingly says, “you’re getting closer.” I was sick to my stomach, pissed beyond words. All I kept thinking was, “Who the hell does he think he is?”
I was living the life in what most people would see as normal. But on the inside, I was screaming, crying myself to sleep at night. All I kept saying to myself was: “How did my life end up like this?!?!” How did I end up at 39 years old financially dependent, in another shitty marriage, never feeling good enough and feeling like crap about myself? How will I ever break free when I’m barely making any money and feeling so bitter that I can’t even remember how to feel empowered or joyful? Adding to the craziness, I’m still being harassed by stalker ex-husband #2, dragging me to court fighting his outrageous accusations and trying to stay safe! How will I ever escape this living hell?
I woke up one morning, and I felt different, I can’t explain it, it was like my subconsciousness, my high self, decided that I was going to step into my power and do something for ME! I chose to get certified as a yoga instructor. One day after doing yoga for an hour, I started meditating. I was just thanking God for everything, and as I got deeper into a meditative state, I thanked God for all that I had gone through, including all the abuse. I jumped back, pissed that I actually thanked God for abuse! But in that moment, this weight had lifted and I realized I was free. All the bitterness that I was holding onto towards ex #1, the domestic violence I lived through and feeling that he robbed me of my future, all the bitterness towards ex #2 for cheating on me, the domestic violence: constantly stalking, harassing me and taking me to court. All the bitterness that builds up towards husband #3 for making me feel ugly on the inside and out, was gone. All that was in front of me was a new outlook for my future and peace began to fill my body, mind, and spirit.
When #3 and I split, I moved my kids and me out to the first place I could find, desperate to feel free and whole again. It was a 1600-foot termite-infested house. When you’re at the breaking point of a bad relationship that makes you and your kids feel like you’re not good enough and like crap – it’s amazing what becomes important to survive mentally and emotionally.
I made a decision right then and there that I was going to figure out this whole “success” thing, I had to heal and empower myself first. I understood back when I had been meditating that I went through all that I had, so I could help, heal and empower women on a deeper level since I had gone through so much. This became my mission! At that moment, I made a commitment to immerse myself in absolutely everything that had to do with healing and empowering myself and to my success: I got back into the law of attraction, found other modalities to heal and empower myself, and set my sights on creating a business to heal and empower other women. Talk about a turnaround! I made my intention to become a very sought-after coach, speaker and mindset mentor.
I drove all over God’s creation learning and getting certified in everything from cognitive behavioral therapy to becoming a tantra educator. I joined a mentoring group and co-wrote a book focused on, “Intuitive Leaders Transforming Lives and Businesses with Global Consciousness and Spiritual Teachings”. I got back to writing my book I had been working on for about 12 years and jumped into this new chapter in my life. In less than a year, my divorce was final, I had met my soul mate and created my coaching business. I had gone from feeling defeated and dejected to being empowered and becoming successful.
But there were still these issues. I had gone through all these “healing” modalities; however, I still had these insecurities, still didn’t feel like I knew enough, and I had started gaining weight at a ridiculous speed -75lbs in 5 months. I couldn’t figure out what was going on, old feelings started coming back up about my body, about my worth, and my knowledge. Then I realized what was REALLY going on. I was still afraid of ex #2. I was afraid of him taking me to court again. I had gotten into the habit of hiding anything I did, anywhere I went, anything I was involved in because he completely twists the truth and takes me to court. I was exhausted by all this, but I couldn’t break free of the “control” he had over me. I realized I held back and never really put myself out there, limiting my success and limiting myself so I couldn’t serve the world with my passion in a bigger way. Which wound up also causing my hypothyroidism/Hashimoto’s to spin out of control, hence the weight gain.
“I began breaking through all of the inner blocks and self-worth issues, believing I deserved success!”
So, I started doing some deep healing work, and riding myself of old beliefs. Even after my soul-mate husband and I lost our baby and feeling completely derailed from my path, feeling as if my heart had been ripped from my chest and in complete disbelief over our loss, I found peace and ways to cope and finding in myself an even deeper understanding and healing process. I began engaging more and getting out in the world. I began speaking at masterminds and at women’s conferences, holding chakra and meditation classes, putting on workshops. I began breaking through all of the inner blocks and self-worth issues, believing I deserved success.
Forgiveness can be the key to your success!
I went back to that defining moment in 2014, remembering the relief I felt, remembering the forgiveness, and then I forgave myself. I began teaching other women how they can do the same: I watched their confidence return; their relationships, careers and families grow stronger, faster than they even dared to dream about. I have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping other women who have lived through the cycle of abuse, breaking through self-worth issues, who feel powerless and afraid to speak their truth, to break through their inner blocks, rediscover their inner confidence, step into their power and go from surviving to thriving – where they can have the FREEDOM to create the life they’ve always dreamed of – and everything that is important to them.
Since then, I’ve worked with private clients, spoken in front of countless groups: I’m living my dream of being a woman entrepreneur, badass empowerment coach, getting to spend time and travel with my family; and I have created the “Inspiring the Goddess Within: Go from Surviving to Thriving” System™, a series of 10 important inner and outer healing and empowerment steps every woman needs to apply to get out of her own way, rediscover her inner confidence, joy and build a life she loves, and create the business she has always dreamed of in record time.
