What’s Your Story?

What is your story? Do you have a story that defines you? How does that story serve you? What is your reward from being that character in the story?

For most of my life my story was that I had gone through a phenomenal amount of abuse, my relationship with my family was very difficult, I was the outcast and I didn’t have approval or support from my family. Now that story is real, it is true. It also served to maintain my status as never being good enough, being inferior to everyone and it was difficult to have a sense of worth or confidence with anything that I did.

My story is something that I would share with dear friends later in life and anyone that would listen for most of my life, it would define who I was to them. They served to solidify my crappy life and that I had so much stuff to get over and work through.

When you share your story, whether it is a good, sad, bad, fun, boring or inspiring the people you share your story with contribute to making that story more real. They hold that story as true for you.

Working with people in business the most common stories I hear is, “I’ve hit a block”, “I’m stuck”, “I can’t get past this point”. They all have a very similar energy.

For me there is a ‘pause’ right before something shows up. There is a time when energy builds up under the surface and physically there is no evidence of change, but underneath the energy is churning and building up momentum. If you create a story then you start to slow down that energy. If you share your story with others then they start to make that real for you by slowing down the build up of energy even more.

What you focus on you receive. What you perceive you receive. Your story defines what you are getting and what you will get.

My new defining story is how I spent nine months chanting for a minimum of three hours a day and trance dancing for at least one hour every day to find what came after Buddhism. This lead me to quit my job and hop on a play to Reno, Nevada. Where I then drove to Lake Tahoe and literally drove right to the bookstore where one of my Native American teachers worked and one of her Native teachers just happened to be stopping by, he lived a four drive away. I then spent just over ten years training with Native American Medicine people and had three of them fly out to the UK to spend months teaching me and training me where I lived. This is my new story.

Does this mean that I wasn’t abused, that I didn’t struggle as a child, that I spent most of life wanting to die and that I was a suicide queen? No. That was me, but it’s no longer me. It was the story that I was being, it was the story that I used for people to understand me and to agree what I horrible life I had and to justify not having more fun, happiness, peace, great relationships, a successful business, money and a happy family.

My new story is that I took a chance, I followed an energy, I followed information that I received from trance dancing and quit my job (effectively I was told if I went on that plane I was fired, so I was fired or quit, you choose) got on a plane and went to Lake Tahoe, where I didn’t know one single person to find Native Americans that I was having visions of while dancing. It sounds nuts. It’s as nuts as my old story, but in a more yummy and delicious way. I was welcomed with open arms. The Natives saw my talents, abilities, my courage and my dedication to following Spirit and my inner knowing and they embraced me with open arms and shared their knowledge.

The Native American Medicine people had so much value and adoration for me that at three different times they flew out on their own to a country they had never been with to work with me, to further my training. This was at their expense. I didn’t pay them to come, they came because they wanted to. Because I was that valuable, that amazing. This is my story. This is what I am going to be sharing with people from now on.

What is YOUR story? Will you share it with me? Will you share it with the world? Are you willing to have a story that you share that supports you in being the phenomenal being that you truly be?

I adore you!

Thank you for being you!

Big Hugs,
Angela

P.S. What would it take for you to share your story here?
The whole purpose of my sharing my story is to give
the contrast. What I am asking for is what story you
are functioning from now and if you are willing to
change that. Is your story serving you? Is it supporting
you in growing your business and being happy in
totality?

P.P.S. The story I love the most that is left in the comments
below will win a free session with me via phone or Skype.

    Loved your story. Have had suicidal thoughts plaguing me for years, releif to know I’m not the only one. My life seems to have been a rollercoaster of doing well, then not doing well. I have been a self help junkie, not found anything that really works. Figuring out what I was doing when I was doing well that I wasn’t doing when I wasn’t doing well, I couldn’t figure it out. What else is possible? Be great to get this elephant off my head and wake up in the morning feeling happy to be alive. What would it take for that to happen?

  2. Angela says:

    Dear Gorgeous Brenda,

    I so get what you are saying and where you are coming from. What if it is just a choice? What if you just demand for ten seconds to experience ease, peace or joy? What if you demanded to experience all three. I had total justification of feeling crap, because I had so much abuse and from not having unconditional love and support from a family. I could just go on and on. What if you change your story? What if you found these tools of asking questions and now you are being joy and fun? What if that could be your story? At some point you have to choose to feel good! What would it take for that to be now? You might want to look at investing in my program so that you are getting a weekly dose of support and information. For me the most powerful thing that helped me was diving into classes and getting that new information. It’s OK to get help! What is required here?

    I adore you!

    Big Hugs,
    Angela

  3. Lisa Lane says:

    Angela I love your new story. I wish I could be that courageous. Can I make up a story for my life? My story hasn’t been good so far which Access is helping to change. How I would like my story to be: I quit my job and move back to Hawaii, my body and soul cries to return to this land, and I become an Access facilitator. Even writing this is making me sad because I feel it’s never going to happen. I wish I could be as brave as you are Angela.

  4. Angela says:

    Dear Gorgeous Lisa,

    What about how being on my program doubled your sales. That would be an awesome story to share!! What if you were to share that story with everyone here and by doing that have them help you in creating even more business and income for you? I love that story about how your sales just multiplied and all you did was participate in the calls and listen to the questions of the week! That is my favorite story that you have told me!!!! Are you willing to tell that story again! What if that is your story? The beauty of it is that it IS real, it is the truth, you don’t even have to make something up!!!

    I adore you!

    Big Hugs,
    Angela

  5. Your so awesome Angela thanks for sharing this <3

  6. Lisa Lane says:

    Thank you beautiful it’s funny how quick I forget or buy into other people around me stories. I would love to share that story.
    AFTER ANGELA
    My story: I own my own business selling fish and pond supplies on the Internet. Since working with Angela and really using the tools she has provided not only have my sales and profit doubled all of last year profit (and it’s only the 4th month) my website has been featured in a well recognized koi fish magazine. How does it get any better then that? I’ll tell you how it gets better I have another story I forgot about. My live in fiancé lost his job several months ago and “again” Angela helped me. This past Monday he was offered a job making more then what he was making before with great benefits and the opportunity to move up. The job is 3rd shift which he likes and last night was his first night and I slept more soundly and deeper then I have in years (he is a heavy snorer) this job is perfect for both of us.
    I had completely forgotten about that I havent even told you that good news Angela. So again thank you Angela for helping me write this new story in my life, the previous post is before Angela and this post is after Angela, how cool Angela you could use this as a before and after story, I should title that post before Angela, and I’ve titled this one After Angela.
    I love you Angela you are a god send thank you for helping me write a new story in my life.

  7. Angela says:

    Woo hoo! Gorgeous Lisa,

    How does it get any better than this? What else is possible?
    I am LOVING your story!! Thank you for sharing it with everyone!!!

    I adore you!!!!!

    My son sustained rare T-spine injury on the job in Jackson, WY 6/23/2005. It took 2 Hearings, a 3rd one cancelled because WC had withheld evidence, and a WY Supreme Court Filing to get his fusion surgery (1/25/2012) and get him on the road to recovery. He has been unable to work through this time, Soc Sec has also denied him (that’s in Appeal) and I have gone through most of my Assets. When the surgery finally happened, I thought I could see the end of the tunnel, however I was laid off a month later and have been unable to find new employment even with the temp agencies or generate new income. I am relieved to have been separated from my bi-polar boss, however not so relieved to be separated from a much needed money stream as I have used most of my “back up” backing up the last 7 years. I have been utilizing Access since August and am very grateful to have the tools… using them every day… could use a breakthrough! thanks.

  9. angela says:

    Dear Gorgeous Bea,
    What energy, space and consciousness can we be that would allow all of this
    to change?
    What are the possibilities with this uncomfortableness?
    What are the infinite possibilities here?
    Big Huge Hugs,

  10. Bea says:

    Thank you Angela, will focus on these 3. Have a peaceful week!

  11. My old story, ” I’m an entrepreneur whose partner took the business down.. even when I saw my own part in the play it was still his fault.”. My old story: “I don’t have time”. My old story: “I was sick for a lot of my life”.. My old story: “I don’t know what I want to to with my life, what is my purpose, how do I find it, (even while teaching others about life purpose)”
    My New Story. “I am that I am, and I love my life. I work, I play, I do Tai Chi. I have a radio show, I talk, discuss, consult and plant seeds, – both energetically and in the ground. I Love laugh and move forward every day. “

  12. angela says:

    Awesome! I am loving your new story!! Thank you so much for sharing!! How did we get
    to be so lucky?

  13. You ROCK Angela.
    My old story — I am nothing.
    My new story — I am everything! I am a potent infinite being who is continually creating and generating a living that is beyond anything and everything I imagined possible! Yesterday was my first official book signing, Thursday is my debut on TV… what are the infinite possibilities? How does it get any better than that?
    xoxoxoxoxo

  14. Angela says:

    Wow! Gorgeous Glenyce,

    How does it get any better than this? What else is possible?
    Woo hoo!!!! Yippee!! What would it take for your story to keep getting better and better?

    I adore you!!

  15. Theresa says:

    My childhood was filled with neglect. My basic needs were met but my emotional needs were not. I have lived my life with low self-esteem and no self-confidence. When I was in the sixth grade I started thinking about suicide and have had suicidal thoughts off and on ever since.

    I recently discovered Access Consciousness and I can’t get enough of it. I love the tools and I know that even for the short time I have been using them they have helped me to feel better.

    I am at a crossroad in my life. I am getting ready to leave a job of 13 years that I knew was wrong for me after the first two weeks. I have no idea what I am going to do next. I know that I don’t want another corporate job, that’s for sure. I feel that I would like to have my own home-based business but I have no idea doing what. When I feel frightened I ask “What if this is really excitement that I am feeling?” and that turns around the energy and I start feeling excited about what the future holds.

    I am very grateful to have this opportunity to quit my job and look for something that will bring me joy and financial success, now I just have to figure out what that is.

    Angela, I love your energy! Thank you for all that you do! I have learned a lot from you so far.

    Thanks for listening!

  16. angela says:

    Dear Gorgeous Theresa,

    Thank you so much for sharing! How did we get to be so lucky? What else is possible?
    What if you were to ask every day: What contribution can I be to the consciousness to
    the planet? This will start to unlock and bring forth all the talents and abilities you have
    hidden and denied.

    What would be fun for you to do? What do you LOVE doing?

    I adore you!

    Thank you for being you!

  17. Jakeb Arturio Braden says:

    hi this is a bit of what I am working on atm!

    My name is Jakeb Arturio Braden, it is not the name I was born with. I made a conscious choice and decision to change it at the solar eclipse in 1999!
    I am and I have been on a voyager of self discovery most of my adult life, especially when I made a conscious choice to take responsibility for myself and my life! This wasn’t from a place of self blame I had enough of that growing up in various children’s homes and blaming myself sub consciously for not being good enough to be loved! The bullying, physical, emotional and sexual abuse that also took place didn’t really help matters either more fuel for the fire of unworthiness, or more accurately I attracted it to fuel those feelings on some level! Yes that’s right you read it correctly! Although that could be a whole other book in itself!
    This is an introduction or back ground to where I am today, the context behind it and why I started to ask questions about my life, to wonder how much I could make of my life, what I could contribute! Because even though my childhood was challenging on many levels there were moments through it when I “knew” I was here for a reason! I was also interested in things like the paranormal, tarot cards, psychics and what you’d call “new age” stuff! Through out my childhood until I was 12 I had to go to Sunday school it was mandatory and at 12 we could chose to go or not I chose not even though I understood many of the bible’s messages even at a young age as well which surprised my Religious Education teachers! What was true for me was a spiritual aspect to me, I did have spiritual feelings even when I identified as am aetheist! Although that was more around rebelling then anything else and the sense that Organised religion for was far too Judgemental! I hadn’t even realised I was Gay at that point either, so in a way a good thing I didn’t follow a path with organised religion!

  18. Jakeb Arturio Braden says:

    The self development aspect didn’t come along for me until 1997 when I was about 28. I had been involved in volunteering for a charity (Gay Men Fighting Aids) that worked with gay and bisexual men around sexual health! I intended to work with gaymen around HIV prevention and sexual health and volunteering was a good route into this. So after I had been volunteering giving out condom packs on Hampstead Heath lol! I attended an Assertiveness course in 1995/96 with the same organisation and became aware that its possible to change who we are! I had always believed that we were “stuck” with who were are and that our past dictated our present and future! It was a real eye opener to see and experience how one can change things! And how quickly as well!
    . Now I had my first insight that I could be a facilitator and work with groups of people in 1993, I volunteered for the Terrence Higgins Trust and on the induction weekend I happened to notice what the facilitator was being paid! A voice spoke to me inside and said you could do this! Anyway I followed an Admin path at THT!
    Being part of that organisation was such a gift and I when I was accepted to be a volunteer facilitator after attending a training week! I was very happy and I really enjoyed facilitating so many development courses for gay men! They were basically aimed at reducing HIV, however through empowerment and teaching skills such as assertivenss and a by product of that was self development I saw so many men grow and develop themselves and the organisation was huge on personal responsibility! Something I wrestled with for a while! The petulant inner child still need some love and support in regards to my childhood.

  19. Jakeb Arturio Braden says:

    Anyway I actually got a job in 2000 work in sexual health promotion and I was pleased as punch, at the time I was a SGI Buddhist and had done a load of chanting Nam myho Renge Kyo, I used to chant two hours a day sometimes! Anyway more on that later on! Working in Soho and in that job was a huge leap forward me and showed me that your dreams can come true and that whatever your circumstances its possible to achieve something! The next milestone was a relationship! I met my significant Boyfriend on 01/01/01 at 1am (numerology anyone?) This bought about new challenges for me and my self development at that time was “on hold” as I felt I had achieved all I had set out to that time! Life at that time being a destination not a journey!

  20. Bea says:

    Just getting started with my website. This is from my blog today:

    NEW STORY: Can’t make myself come back and work on the website.. frustration level just has not subsided. While I’ve been trying to distract myself from being unemployed, I’ve been searching for and discovering a lot of great income generating processes and information. If I choose to act on a couple of them, the pressure for this site will be gone and I can keep it fun and light as was the original intent. I also took the time to read through Angela Gower-Johnson’s recent blog on the Ultimate Dream Project. Very helpful, great tools, she’s had a bunch of “opportunities” to lose it over the last couple of weeks so has shared several terrific questions to ask. If you are familiar with Access Consciousness, she is a great facilitator. If you are not familiar with Gary Douglas and Dr. Dain Heer’s “questioning” approach to life, just give them a click and see what you think. Dr. Shelly Childers asked last night how I got so lucky as to have created everything required to get us through the last seven years. This has made me stop and ask… How DID I get so lucky… and What if it is possible to do this for the next seven years as well? Anything that would prevent that…POD and POC it!

    From Angela: “Whose Universe am I in?” “What is this? What can I do with it? Can it be changed? (Pause… is that a yes or a no? If YES then proceed) How do I change it? What energy is required here?”

    How did I get so lucky as to have brought this process and these wonderful facilitators into my life at this very time! Thank you Angela and all.

  23. Theresa says:

    Angela asked this in response to my earlier post: “What would be fun for you to do? What do you LOVE doing?”

    I LOVE to collect things – anything from the 1950’s, fabric, vintage sewing patterns, art supplies, books, online tutorials, recipes, ideas. I LOVE going to thrift stores and rummage sales. I LOVE taking classes and learning new things. I LOVE to sew and create things out of fabric.

    What would be fun for me to do?
    Buy and sell vintage things (and find other ways to monetize my love of collecting things)
    Help others find their way
    Metaphysical healing

    Wow! This was really powerful. I have so much more clarity now by just typing out the answers to those two questions. In the past I have seen therapists and hired coaches and have not gotten that much clarity. I am feeling very light at the moment and I have goose bumps. Angela, you are good!!!

    How does it get even better than this? What else is possible? How did I get so lucky? Thank you so much!

  24. Angela says:

    Dear Gorgeous Theresa,

    Wow! How does it get any better than this? What else is possible?

  25. Does poetry count?

    -i-

    when first we met
    i saw you as a little girl,
    alone
    and insecure.
    though only days have passed
    i’ve come to know you as a woman,
    deep
    and pure.
    yet still in me a strange and distant
    feeling,
    growing stronger,
    into my heart is stealing;
    but never near enough to see or name.

    i wonder if,
    playing some silly game,
    you have gained control of me,
    so that my thoughts,
    no longer mine,
    are now for all the world to see.

    -ii-

    my love,
    don’t leave me here!
    whether little girl, or woman, insecure:
    stay close,
    and let our love endure.
    i need you more as days go by.
    i stand alone.
    i watch the sparrows fly.
    the stars shine down on cold and lonely
    frozen snow;
    day by day the winter goes.
    spring comes roaring with a gentle sigh:
    the flowers grow.
    i hear a baby cry.
    my life goes on and i grow old.
    the leaves are falling;
    autumn passes.
    once again it’s cold.

    -iii-

    were i to die before the morn
    or were a little baby born,
    whatever happens in all of time,
    though stars should fall and heaven be no more,
    i must link your thoughts with mine.
    there is no life.
    there is no death.
    all the universe shall hold its breath
    as i wait for you to say:
    “come, take my hand!”
    and on that day my life will start again,
    i know,
    for in your eyes the flowers grow.

    be not sad, my love, not sad,
    for life is good
    (though also bad)
    and angels fly and robins sing
    and grass is green
    and soon again it will be spring
    and you will laugh
    and i will know:

    there among the flowers our love will grow!

    Thank you for your poem, Rev. Stephen.

  27. Carl David says:

    Suicide is a devastating issue .

    I am a third generation Fine Art Dealer in our now 4th generation family owned & operated Fine Art Gallery in Philadelphia (David David Gallery). I am also the author of two books (& a 3rd almost finished) and many published articles.

    Anyone to whom you mention the subject of suicide, knows someone who committed suicide. Far less than six degrees of separation.

    My latest book, “Bader Field; How My Family Survived Suicide” (Nightengale Press) is the emotional story of our family’s struggle to survive after my older brother at age 22 took his life. I was just 16 years old. The effects on myself and my family were devastating, beyond description. We had but two choices; to pull together or tear each other apart. We chose the former and used every bit of strength to rebuild our lives. The challenges were monumental as every day was day one. We had to start over with each sunrise because the aftereffects were so persistent and the pain so ever present that at times it seemed insurmountable. We wondered if we would ever be able to move forward and regain some semblance of life.

    We realized after a period of time that life does go on, with us or without us and that we had to forge on and live for ourselves and for my brother. He’d have wanted that and we knew that whatever the cause that pushed him to that final edge of desperation, if he’d known the pain that his loss would cause he never would have ended his life.

    Kids need to know that no matter what, no matter how desperate they feel, that they are loved, that there is help for them and that suicide is never ever the answer. It is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Life is a gift and every day we wake up is a blessing. No matter the difficulty, we get a redo. We have the luxury of choice in how we will spend our time and what we will do with it.

    Having lived through and survived the horrific experience of my brother’s suicide, I am awakened to the purpose in my life. I am paying it forward by illustrating the pain with which the surviving family members are imbued so perhaps it will draw someone back from that edge of desperation.

    There are triggers that vault you backward in an instant. When we hear of someone who has taken their life, our scab is ripped off and we weep with an involuntary kinship. There is a common ground as we’ve been thrust into an unwanted membership to this God awful club. We feel for them; we know their pain. We want to reach out to comfort them; to let them know that they are not alone, they will survive; we all do.

    It is always present, that persistent bit of pain which lurks just beneath the surface, waiting to nudge you back to reality when it awakens with just the slightest influence. We must acknowledge it and never shut it out for we cannot deny who we are and all of the experiences that build upon our foundation. We take ourselves with us wherever we go; that library of records within which defines us an makes us individual.

    As a father my perspective had became ever more profound. While our children were growing up, the haunts of the past were always there and our caution flags were always on guard. We never spoke of my brother’s death until they were of sufficient age to understand and not freak out as this is a very sensitive issue. We needed to let them know, almost as insurance, so that by understanding the degree of destruction such an act leaves on a family, that they would never even consider it.

    I am on a mission to save lives….even one. This is my way of paying forward by taking the darkest days of my life and helping others to see the impact of a suicide on the surviving family members. I need to let those who have walked a similar devastating path know that life does go on and that life is for the living, that we do survive. Our scars become an integral part of us as the experiences imprint our souls, but it is what we do with that information that makes us who we are in the end. I lived it and need to share my story first hand so that it will spare others from going through it.

    Suicide claims more than a million lives each year and leaves more than five million to mourn them. It knows no boundaries; not age, gender, color, race or nationality. It’s victims are drawn by drugs, depression, disease, sexual confusion, bullying, peer pressures, feelings of desperation and immeasurable levels of inadequacy. Teens and young adults are especially vulnerable. The only way to thwart this unforgiving beast is to confront it by raising levels of awareness so that it is spoken about rather than looking the other way, fueling the veil of shame and secrecy that keeps it thriving and killing innocent people. That is why I have come forward with my story

    If you know someone who is on that final edge of hopelessness, reach out to them. Get them to talk to a family member, a friend, a rabbi, a priest, a doctor, a nurse, a bartender, even a stranger. There are so many avenues of help available, 911, contact organizations, suicide hotlines and the list goes on. Don’t hesitate, second guess or wonder, just do it. Better to be a little over zealous than wishing you would have acted sooner. You might just save a life. Remember, “Whoever saves a life saves the world entire….”

    As I have lived it, I bring to the table a degree of realism that is timeless and very powerful.

    Thank you.

    Dear Carl,
    Thank you so much for your heartfelt story and sharing with us.
    What else is possible?
    Big Hugs,
    Angela

  29. Angela says:

    Hello Angela,

    I just wanted to thank you for the great and kind feedback in the group writers of non fiction (fb) and also for your recent contest. I was on your blog and reading comments. It really struck me in several ways. One being how we all have a story. I was also abused repeatedly from a very young age and onward; sexually (incest), verbally, emotionally, and physically. I’ve spent over half my life in therapy, spent the other half exploring other parts of myself through spirituality and holistic healing. What really caught me about your contest was – where am I NOW? and how will my story end? For the last several years I thought it was going to be about my journey to self love… but your question seems to have deepened the depth of my questions “What do I want?” and “How would I like to write the end of MY story?”… I have spent a lot of time in ‘analyzing things’ and ‘healing things’…. and now I am daydreaming… like a clean slate is truely possible and there is NOW an untouched clean place to create from with whatever I want. I thank you for the new depth of this wonderful insight. Sincerely.

    For years I thought I suffered abuse to voice it, write about it, share how I overcame it and to protect children from this type of abuse in the future… and now I am wondering why any part of my worthiness has to do with that at all?… and for the first time it is more about “Who AM I?” and “What makes ME truely happy?” and it may have very little to do with what “happened to me”. I can dream and act without my “luggage” the stuff I carried for years. I can get busy creating whatever I want without the limitations that held me captive in my own suffering.

    The journey continues… and the possabilites are endless.

    In gratitude. xo

    Dear Beautiful Angela,

    Thank you so much for your lovely words and your amazing story!!!
    Would you be willing to share with us when you start developing more
    of your story?

    Here is a great question for you: If you had no past what would you choose?

    What if you could be, do, have and create anything? What would you choose?

    I too have thought my story would be about the abuse and how I survived it. Now I’ve switched
    it to the tools I have used to create a business, but more importantly have given me Ease, Peace,
    Joy and more Happiness then I ever imagined possible! How does it get any better than this?

    Thank you so much for being you! I adore you!

    Big Hugs and Infinite Gratitude,
    Angela

    Dear Angela
    After seeing this blog post and reading your story which is inspiring, I would love to share mine with you all, as I choose to make a huge decision recently to change my story in a big way, the negative situations and experiences I was facing sort of exploded me to make a radical decision….

    I am in the middle of a big transformation, a journey of leaving my career of 27 years as a professional company accountant, which was a very highly paid but very stressful career. I never really wanted to be in this career from set go, was only due to peer pressure. The peer pressure from family to get a job which will pay well so to support me and give me a good pension for retirement, their motto, work hard now, live later attitude.

    The money has kept me in it for 27 years giving the lifestyle of my own house, 3-4 holidays a year and all the other things I want, when I want, but what suffered was my health and sanity. A lot of pressure and stress with deadlines to meet in my career, working long hours and eating takeaways for years and also beering up took its toll and I fell seriously ill with a stomach disease.

    Cut along story short, took my health in my own hands, went to retreat in Canada from the UK, and went on a cleanse of water and juice to clear it and cure the disease. It worked, turned 100% raw overnight and have not looked back since. I am now optimal fit and healthy, never ill and a ultra distance runner of which raw food is my fuel.

    I never had support to be who I truly was as a person and grow my own gifts and talents. After loosing both my parents in recent years and other transformational and life changing experiences, I am now taking a leap of faith and going out and following my dream of having my own business in the area of my passions, running, raw food and holistic coaching in spiritual guidance and connection.

    I have left my career 3 months ago to traveling to the USA for the first time and gaining two certifications for my new business, Chi Running and Holistic Spiritual Coaching, so to combine these two modalities with my personal experience as a Raw Vegan and as a Raw Food Lifestyle mentor. Its an exciting journey and my life is flowing freely as I travel and its easy to connect with the right people and be at the right place at the right time, I feel this is because on the right path for me :)

    I am transforming in away that is both uplifting and exciting but also rather scary in that I am finding a new me, going through some negative blocks and energies, but also find ways to overcome them as go along. I have learnt and love that life is an adventure and a roller coaster, go with it, enjoy it, breath it, be it, absorb it, let be let God and go with the flow and all will be revealed in the right time and place for your highest good.

    As I have not yet started my business as such I at present not earning or creating income, but once started my business I desire the right guidance within and from others on the right path for me to create my prosperity whilst making a difference in other peoples life’s. I can wait to begin and feel sooo excited, I have come to know now that my fear was excitement and that I am one of those very excited individuals hear on earth being called to take action to serve my purpose.

    My business is centered around bring unity to the body, mind, and spirit through physical exercise in a movement of the body that is easy, injury free and a joy to do, combining that with health within side the body via consuming high quality fresh and live foods that nourish the body and increase our vibration within and Holistic Spiritual Coaching to connect with ones authentic self for guidance, clearing any negative blocks for growth and expansion and following ones purpose in life and much more :)

    My message, is we are spiritual beings in a human body having a great experience here on earth, and its my calling to ensure that we are in unity and connected together in body, mind and spirit and with mother earth, so we can have the best ride on earth full of fun, enjoyment and happiness giving us contentment and peace. To do this we need to have our bodies and mind ticking at optimal vibrancy, health, fit and vital clear of toxins, unhealthy habits and negativity so that we can be in total unity of body, mind and spirit.

    I know and feel I am on the right path for me now, its so clear to me and I am very open to all that life offers to guide and direct me to the place I am meant to be to serve others, whilst finding my dream place to be both financially and the freedom of choice to be me living a life of purpose and joy. I am so ready to accept guidance from source and others to help me expand and grow towards my peace of heaven and awakening.

    I am each week getting clarity in what I can truly offer that would make a difference in peoples life’s through sharing my gifts, passions and experience.

    The one thing I need to Over come is self confidence and visibility issues in expressing who I really am so people can hear and see me clearly and know I am coming from my true authentic self, can help them transform and have optimal wellbeing and see who they are as a very special human being,
    and find their true life path unique to them.

    What else is possible?
    How does it get any better than this?

    All of life comes to me with ease, joy and glory

    much love to you all and to dear Angela, how did I get so lucky to find you? :)
