Excellence in Love: Five Practices for Creating Authentic Relationships


Through my life experience and through my Holistic Life Coaching practice, I have learned that at the heart of all healing is the desire to find love and to be loved. When you walk around critical of yourself or blaming another for your pain you lose site of who you are and you lose your dreams. When you choose to embrace who you are in all that you think, speak, and do you are in a powerful position to create authentic relationships filled with love. You gain peace, joy, and even better health when you are authentic in all that you do.  Join me Saturday, April 18th at 12:00 CST as part of an online summit to learn more about five practices that create loving, authentic, relationships making for healthier and happier lives. I’m live afterwards to answer your questions. Free gift, discounted Kick Start Session, and special Life Coaching package available to listeners.

Spirituality and Death

Being a holistic practitioner I am often curious about the body, mind, and of course, spirit. This curiosity lead me to many experiences in learning about life, death, and spirit. These experiences would transform my life. This past week brought several deep reminders of what death means. The subject of death and dealing with potentially terminally ill family came up at a meeting I host, Evolving Minds. Tomorrow, Saturday morning marks 20 years since my mother left this world. The past 6 months brought two eye opening experiences about my own mortality, and the past 10 years have been filled with surprises from the spiritual world.

I was only 20 when I lost my mother. She was only 41. As I sit here 40 years old and 20 years later I can not imagine being in her place. I can not imagine knowing I was going to die and leave my children. I have no idea how one prepares for such an event. I do not know what she would be like much past my own age now. I often wonder what kind of grandmother she would be and if she would be proud of who I grew up to be. And I even wonder what she would look like since I look so much like her. There is something that changes in a person when one reaches the age of their parent’s death. There is something that changes within a daughter when she loses a mother so young and spends decades wondering what it would be like to have a mother. The pain I felt eventually lead me to peace.

I have never believed in actual death. I have always believed that there was some part of me that would transcend this world. What that may look like or feel like I do not know, but I am receiving glimpses. My 40th birthday was in May and close to that time I had an experience that left me confident that there was an aspect of me that was not my physical body. That part of me was free. I spent the day crying and convincing myself that it was ok stay, I had things to finish here. I vowed to remember those feelings of peace and freedom and to carry them with me in this world. Then, late this summer I had an episode where I lost consciousness and someone had to revive me. I have no recollection of the event. Everything was black. And I wondered if that was what death was like?

Over the past 10 years I have had countless experiences that were not of this world. Some of them included loved ones who have passed. I do not have an explanation for this. I have tried to use science and that helps, but it can not really express the magnitude of such experiences. I am forever grateful to those loved ones that have reappeared reminding me that death is not real. Reminding me that some aspect of them is still with me. Thank you mom, Mr. Hennessey, Felix, and Ben Johnson. I loved you when you were here and I love you now.

These experiences allow me to have a greater respect for life. I take things a little slower, I am a little easier on myself, things that bothered me are easier to let go of, and I love people and experiences so much more deeply. I honor the experiences, even the painful ones like the loss of loved ones. Those experiences remind me of who I AM. Today, take some time to honor your life and your path and to also honor those that may no longer be here with you in the same way. Those loved ones may be closer than you thought.

Considering it appears I shocked some people with my last blog, it seemed appropriate to add the more inspirational side of the story; “Out of the Darkness Comes the Light.

While writing “Figments of my Imagination” I was expressing some of my deepest, darkest feelings. These feelings are temporary. Emotions seem part of the human existence that most of do not entirely escape. We can try. We can stuff them and they may later manifest as illness. We can suffocate them with alcohol or drugs. We can avoid them by keeping busy and never finding true happiness. However, the feelings may remain within stifling your freedom.

Spiritual teaches often preach that one must be with the emotion, feel it, surrender to it, AND THEN it dissipates. The pain and hurt or anger and frustration will literally melt away if you can just allow those feeling to be what they are: A temporary feeling of emotion as a  spirit has a human experience.

When the cloudy gray sky lifts, the sun shines. There is clarity, peace, and love. It is where the darkness disappears and the light shines. It is from this stand point that you have freedom. Freedom To Be. We should spend our time surrounded by people that support the light that we bring to the world. We should spend our time doing the things we love and using our God given gifts for the good of all.

My experience has been that in the most difficult and challenging situations it was then that I found strength I did not know I had. It was then that I evolved and learned what I really needed to do. In my spiritual quest to understand human suffering, I learned that one must experience that which they do not want in order to know what they do want. You would not know the light if you did not have the dark is a phrase often used to explain such events.

I believe that we incarnate into a body on this earth with a few specific plans. I believe we choose another soul to help us to experience the opposite of what we want so that we can then choose to do something different. Imagine a tragic event, for example school shootings. Because of these event countless people will be inspired to do something good. They will be inspired to help change the world. The darkness will bring the light.

I am sure we have the creative power to create a world through God  that does not require  suffering. However, at this stage of our evolution we have some room for improvement on how to accomplish such a task. I do pray for a world filled with people feeling joy, peace and most importantly love. Perhaps if we all spent more time just Being and feeling those feelings? Maybe then we would not even notice the darkness, maybe then only the light would exists?

Thank you.

Finding Your Gifts

I firmly believe that everyone of us came into this life with gifts.  I believe that when we use these gifts for good that we are at our best.  There are many things I thought I knew about myself and about how I was going to use these special talents yet some how I evolved and the picture I once thought my life was going to be is now much different, but yet has the same purpose.

When I was a child I knew I wanted to be a doctor. I was fascinated with the show “Emergency” and  I was only 3. When I was 5 I named my goldfish Johnny, Roy,and Captain after three of the paramedics. My parents were kind enough to send me birthday cards and stickers from my heros. I spent my entire childhood knowing that I wanted to help heal people.

As I grew up, life’s experiences changed me. After watching my mother die of cancer I no longer had an interest in anything that had to do with medicine. Then, after spending a decade sick myself and finally healing through natural methods, I was on a new mission.My new mission was to help other people learn all that I had learned through my own research. The idea of helping people heal was back on my agenda so I started Creative Wellness where I get to teach people many new ideas that can help them.

When I first started Creative Wellness I marketed myself as a Personal Trainer. I really wanted to be a true holistic personal trainer and do so much more than teach fitness, but separating myself in a sea of personal trainers was challenging. I also realized that as much as I love fitness, there was more I wanted to do. In my quest to meet people where they are at and help them take their wellness to a new level I incorporated other modalities such as nutrition and stress management. I have added so many possibilities to my list of credentials that I started to struggle to answer the all important question; “What do you do?”

Well, I help people lead healthier and happier lives. I am a Wellness and Lifestyle Coach that wants to empower you to change your life and inspire you to be the best you can be. If you believe it, you can achieve it. This is perhaps the most important phrase you will ever hear.

On this amazing journey I have learned so many things. The most important things being the power of the mind, the importance of perception, and the ultimate in self-empowering knowledge that at every moment you have a choice. I chose this path and I choose to believe that is perfect for me.

I am not a doctor. In fact, I don’t even want to be. I want to help people realize their full potential though the power of their own thoughts and through energy work. When I was 10  and all my girlfriends wanted to be models and teachers, I wanted to be a “brain surgeon.” When I was in college, I didn’t want to be just a doctor, I wanted to be an anesthesiologist. The mind had forever been my passion. The power to heal as forever been my passion.

I have spent the past few years trying desperately to find a way to do what I love. I have repeatedly struggled with marketing services such as “Energy” work and “Meditation.” I have redone, taken off, put on, redone, again and again in an attempt to “fit in.” I thought I was going to be able to bridge some gap between those who believe in spiritual and the power of thought and those who don’t. I no longer need to do that.

Recently, I had a conversation with a man who has some very special gifts. He said to me; “I have found that believers are believers and skeptics are skeptics and there is always going to be both.” For some reason this resonated deeply with me. Suddenly, I no longer felt like I needed to prove anything. I suddenly realized that no words were ever going to describe certain types of healing. I understood on a profound level that I don’t have twist things around to create believers. In fact, if I turn it into something else I have then lost the essesence of something very spiritual in nature. That defeats the entire purpose.

With all of this knowledge, I have now again, but in a new frame of mind, added meditation and energy work back onto my website. I HAVE FOUND MY GIFTS. I have been blessed with some amazing knowledge and blessed with nearly unbelievable talents. I am amazed at the things I have been able to do. I watch, much like a child, in awe. I am blessed and I am grateful.
