CHRISTINE Christine Marmoy

Today is a special day…a day where ‘Manifesting’ takes on its full meaning. I launched the first Women’s Edge Magazine a few years ago as the manifestation of a long awaited overdue dream. Today, I’m so proud to see that my dream serves as a platform to showcase several women who walk their talk and are able to manifest their dreams on a daily basis. As you read what they do, you’ll come to the understanding that the power of manifesting is not the panacea of one technique but the combination of several that when working together can propel you beyond your wildest dream. I was very fortunate to speak with every one of these powerful women, and I can bear witness to the fact that they have gone through quite a few hardships. Yet, lo and behold, they arrived on the other side enriched with wisdom and secrets that only the ones who walked the path can fully appreciate with regard to the amount of pain and the depth of the work that actually took place. Manifesting is not an ability reserved for a few privileged people, it is a skill that we are born with, but one that most of us have forgotten. Today’s Women’s Edge Magazine issue is about dissipating the doubts and giving you the opportunity to stand up for what you believe in and take responsibility to do whatever it takes to achieve all your dreams. If there is one thing I’m certain of, it is that all our dreams are meant to transcend our being to materialize into our reality; this is the reason we took on a human form to begin with. Our work into this realm is to remember and to create the life we decided we would have when we signed up to come back! If you are serious about manifesting the life you know deep down you should be living, then this issue is for you! Read it all, then go back to it as often as you like, then contact these experts… To your Successful Manifestation.

SHARE! By Noni Boon

My name is Noni Boon. I am a Wellbeing Coach and I improve the lives of women in ways they did not think possible. I wrote SHARE, a course that helps women to find themselves, feel good about themselves, and re-connect with their power, energy, and zest for living. SHARE addresses the ‘whole’ person – mind, body, and spirit. I am passionate about sharing the tools, knowledge, and wisdom I have gathered through working in the fitness industry, studying art, holistic counselling, archetypes, chakras, and positive psychology. Every topic included in SHARE is necessary to know. SHARE takes you through a process of ‘cleaning the slate’, ‘letting go of the past’, and ‘tidying up’ unfinished business. Before you can


go on to create a magical, inspiring life, you first need to remove the blocks and obstacles that have been holding you back. Chances are you don’t even really know what they are. Negativity becomes a subtle part of us and eventually SHARE becomes a way of life.

SHARE is the answer to giving you an easy and complete overhaul and becoming the absolute best version of yourself. You deserve to live a life that totally excites you, fills your heart with passion, and gives you meaning and purpose. You were designed for something great. It is common to go ‘off track’, or lose touch with your authentic self, your higher self, and your source of inspiration. The fun really starts when you re-align yourself, and hone your creative skills. Being an artist has helped me to take an objective look at the world

Creating a Loving, Supportive Space to Thrive In By Lisa Nesser My long-standing interest in Eastern religions and culture with all of the seemingly magical rituals have definitely shaped my approach to manifestation in my personal life. My work is essentially an act of respect and adoration for what I hold most valuable in life; freedom,


the arts and communication. I founded Thai Freedom House, a free community learning center for Burmese refugees and minority groups in my tiny rented house in Northern


My work is essentially an act of respect and adoration

Thailand based on an immediate response to a need that I saw was not being met; providing a community space for people who have been torn from their homes and ancestral rights to land. It was all about the space; space to be themselves, speak their language without anyone looking down on them, wear their tribal dress without being shunned or targeted by the police, to celebrate their traditional festivals and eat food that brought back memories of their family and land. I created a safe environment for them to be themselves and watched as community activities flourished, volunteers came from around the world to join in supporting the project and eventually the social enterprise cafe; Free Bird Cafe that I opened to help support Thai Freedom House, became

popular the world over, people being attracted to the space that was created. People; the students themselves, volunteers, interns and visitors are always commenting on what a beautiful, clean, safe, inviting space I have It was all created. The fact is that about the even though we have five space language programs, a Mothers’ Circle project, hospitality vocational trainings, University preparation tutoring, art, yoga, computer skills, local history and drama workshops every week, people are first and foremost impressed by the feeling or energy of the space itself. I truly believe that without intention and concern going into creating the right environment for a project, it cannot thrive. I decided to use this concept of creating space for manifestation in my personal life and identify the key elements to creating a prosperous, thriving space. You can learn more about my technique and how it paid off in my personal and professional life in my contribution to Manifesting in (High) Heels. I can’t wait to hear how it works for you!

LISA NESSER Lisa Nesser is an educator and visionary who has lived in Thailand for the last ten years where she founded Thai Freedom House, a community language and arts learning center for Burmese Refugees and minority groups in Thailand. She also opened the internationally acclaimed social enterprise vegetarian restaurant, Free Bird Café, which aids in supporting the learning center.

How I help my clients

to manifest their Dream life

by Patricia LeBlanc Hello, my name is Patricia LeBlanc and I help professional women go from feeling stuck, unhappy, miserable and lost to being happy, unstuck and discovering who they truly are while helping them manifest the life of their dreams. When my clients come to me, the first step we take is to make certain that they are really clear with what they want while remaining true to themselves. If they are not clear or have no idea about what they want, I then help them to discover it. I will run them through a meditation and also give them exercises so that they can discover who they are and what they truly do want. It is very important to be clear on what you want; if not then the Universe will not give it to you. It is as simple as that.


Once my clients are clear on After what they want, I then teach working them how to manifest it into with Mary their lives. I have a stepfor 6 by-step system that I use months, to help my clients manifest and make use of various she knew techniques depending on exactly my clients. I also help my what it was clients to let go of any fears that she or blockages that are holding wanted them back. Since I am trained in Law of Attraction, Life Coaching, Life Optimization Coaching, NLP, Reiki, Integrated Energy Therapy (IET), Theta Healing and EFT,


I use a holistic and intuitive approach and personalize my coaching based on my clients’ needs.

Case Study: My VIP client, Mary, (name changed to protect her identity) came to me as she was not able to manifest what she thought she wanted. In reality, she was manifesting what she was thinking about subconsciously. After discovering this, I helped walk her thru a guided meditation where she was able to start discovering what it was that she truly wanted in her professional life, relationships, personal life, and lifestyle. This took several sessions as we covered one topic at a time and then put everything together to make sure it resonated with her. Once Mary discovered what she truly wanted, I went ahead and taught her the steps to manifest it into her life. It took several sessions as she

was completely new at manifesting. During our sessions together, we also discovered that Mary had energy blockages that were holding her back. I did 2 energy It is very sessions on her to help her clear the important to blockages that were be clear on holding her back. what you want;

if not then After working with Mary for 6 months, the Universe she knew exactly will not give what it was that she it to you wanted, knew how to manifest it into her life and was able to overcome a few of her fears. Mary is now truly happy as she is true to herself while living the life of her dreams. Remember that you deserve to live the life of your dreams and that everything is possible if you allow it to be! Happy Manifesting!

Helping with Growth and Visibility by Wendy Gambone Tough Talk Radio Network is a company that was started out of wanting to help others market themselves and their businesses without breaking their banks.

ARE ART by Laurie Crookell

Does the following scenario seem familiar to you? You’re sitting at your desk, dawdling, feeling fidgety. A blank computer screen dares you to write. You try to think, fingers nervously drumming on your chin. What do you want to say? The keyboard waits impatiently for you to type. Just type anything. Words drift in and out of your mind before tangling together into a muddled pile of letters. It’s only an article, you reassure yourself. How hard can it be? An idea pops into your mind. You type a few sentences. See? That’s not so bad. You can do


this. You type some more, deep breath, go back to the top of the screen, and read. Blah-blah-blah…. Sigh. Definitely not what you want! You want flare. Creativity. Energy. Flow.

The keyboard waits impatiently for you to type

How about this scenario? You’ve designed a brand new website. The graphics are snazzy. The colors are awesome. Your business values are clear. But what do you write on those beautiful pages?

You explore some ideas. Nothing clicks. You don’t feel inspired. Frustration creeps up on you.


So what should you do? Well, you could…


Continue your rhythmic fingertapping, hoping inspiration will flow through your fingers.

you were forced to eat as a child.

4 Beg your cat to write it for you. Or…. 5

Order in pizza and cookies, and hope your article will write itself.

Sit back, relax, eat some chocolate…. And hire a writer. Let her do the labor, while you enjoy your favorite things.


Humans are complex beings. We all communicate differently. We all have diverse abilities. We all have unique strengths. Some like playing with numbers. Others prefer solving problems. Some enjoy inspiring people.

LAURE CROOKELL Creative spark. Unique ideas. Rich imagination. Born to write. This is how people describe Laurie Crookell. An International BestSelling author, writer, and speaker, Laurie feels deeply moved by the emotive power of words. With a BA in Economics, she provides one-on-one math and literacy support for children with learning differences. She also owns a freelance writing company, Where Words Are Art. Her writing has been recognized in numerous writing competitions, for essays, prose, and children’s fiction.

Others love organizing things. Each of us has our own strengths. All of us have our areas of challenge. As a writer, book-lover, and literacy specialist, I feel passionately about inspiring children and adults to express their unique voice through the power of the written word. We all have a message to share, a message as unique as ourselves, based on our own personal strengths and experiences. Always a passion for me, creative writing stirs my imagination. Transforming words into art is like finding that perfect gift for a loved one. For years, I’ve watched friends, colleagues, and acquaintances struggle to find the right words to express their deepest thoughts and ideas. Bright, talented, competent people who felt daunted by the task of writing. They regularly sought my help. I realized a need existed out there for quality writing by people who loved to write. An idea was born. The seed was planted to open my freelance writing company, Where Words Are Art. Whether articles, blogs, copywriting, promotional writing, or coaching, I feel inspired when using my creativity to help people share their message to the world.

Beyond Belief! by Christine Marmoy

Isn’t it amazing how the saying “Careful what you ask for because you just might get it!” is actually just as valid as stating 1 + 1 = 2. When I first started my business about 8 years ago, I never ever imagined that I’d be publishing books for a living and enjoying

every single minute of it. In retrospect it makes perfect sense; I love books, I’m always reading something or writing something, yet it never occurred to me that I Today, my could turn this passion into business a successful business and is the willingly go to the other side of result of the book….the publishing side! Today, my business is the result of what I had asked for 3 years ago. However, I had never actually asked the Universe to manifest that I would be

what I had asked for 3 years ago

successful at publishing books. What I was thirsty for was a change; I wanted to find what I could be doing for the rest of my life. I love marketing, don’t get me wrong, but even though I enjoyed what I was doing, something was definitely missing. At that time (and the same still applies today) I was working with VIP clients (high level 1 on 1) and these women were coming to me for one thing and one thing only - they all wanted to become Internationally Visible, they wanted to enter the Global market with their business. My traditional consulting program for a full makeover and access to a worldwide platform is based on 10 months of intensive work. Yet, that wasn’t enough, because just like you, my clients wanted to have faster results and faster returns. This is when the idea of launching my first book “Success in (High) Heels” came into fruition. As with everything I do in my business, I tested the concept of an anthology on my own market with my own clients. Just 3 months later I was able to add another 6 figures to my business…. just like that! I’m not bragging, I’m simply very proud of our achievement. I say ‘our’ because this result is not just the fruit of my labors alone

but of my entire team. More than 10 people are behind Coaching & Success. Now it did happen very fast because when you work with the Universe, you don’t get regular shipping, you get Express Delivery! And the closer you are to your passion, the clearer your communication with the Universe is, the easier it is to manifest what you my clients dream about and the wanted to faster you get it.

have faster results and faster returns

After having published and launched more than 15 International Best Sellers, I can give you a guaranty that there is nothing that works better than a book to get the attention of your clients, the recognition of your peers and the credibility you need to build a successful business. Dreams are achievable, there is no question as to whether they are or not! The question is and will always be: “Do you really want it?” Because if you do, then just within the pages of this magazine you have access to an amazing source of information to help you find a way to manifest the life of your dreams!

Speak in a Bold Way By Kim Boudreau Smith

I had the honor of seeing the Oprah live tour in Detroit recently. There were so many golden nuggets I took away from this amazing weekend. The speakers, the messages were all fantastic, however, one thing stood out and I mean really stood out. It was what Oprah said that really made an impact on me. She talked about her history, her childhood, her days after college and how she stepped into television. It was truly an amazing story which I had not heard before.

When she got into television, she did it because she wanted to take television and make it a place where people can get inspired. Well, when I heard this I literally was taken aback. This is what I aspired to do with radio and right then and there I said to myself, oh my goodness, this is my dream with Bold Radio Station. This is my heart’s desire for my Internet Radio Station. I want to inspire business owners when they

if we at Bold Radio can impact lives with one show at a time, then why not really make a difference on a grander scale? listen to Bold Radio while working to become more inspired, motivated, driven and gain more wisdom for themselves. It doesn’t hurt to have great music to dance away stress, work-out, or just plain move to keep the energy flowing as well! I want Bold Radio to inspire all of the amazing hosts as they speak their bold and beautiful voices to the world. They are experts in their field; they show up strong through their voice and showcase other professionals as their guests. The hosts amaze me in so many ways. The many people they have influenced and have positive impact on through their radio shows, through their voices! Watching these Bold Hosts step into their first show and come out the other side with more confidence and with so much excitement - and this is just

the beginning. Having a radio show is just the beginning of how people can change their businesses. It is a marketing platform that allows people to really hear you. Not only are we changing the lives of others, our lives change as well. My even bolder thinking is‌ if we at Bold Radio can impact lives with one show at a time, then why not really make a difference on a grander scale? So we launched Bold Radio Networks where a host can be a More visibility, leader of their own network of shows collaboration, and support 10 and more other hosts within of inspiring their network. This the world! is where someone else can provide a platform to empower others and support them as their business grows, all through a marketing platform of radio. Now the impact has been amplified. More visibility, collaboration, and more of inspiring the world! As a large village, together we can empower and grow through our bold voices. Sounds pretty inspiring, huh?

Out of the Darkness By Polly Hadfield comes Light For the last 13 years, my husband and I have been educating homeowners on their insurance policies and assisting them to obtain the proper settlement on sudden and accidental damages such as cracked tiles or melted siding due to a grill being too close to the home, etc. Then, on October 29, 2012, Superstorm Sandy tore into the east coast of the United States with 100mph winds, rain and floods. The storm sparked fires and left many areas in darkness for days. Sandy left in its wake not only death and destruction, but countless images that now make up our collective memory of the event: the tangled remains of Atlantic City’s boardwalk, the aerial photo of Manhattan swathed in darkness, the ashen shells of dozens of homes in Breezy Point, Queens, New York.

The 1,000-mile-wide storm caused up to $50 billion in damage! All around us, there was furniture piled high on the sidewalks discarded by people whose homes had been flooded and belongings destroyed, as well as wood and siding from homes where a family had once lived safely together. The 1,000-mileHomes were leaning wide storm over and barely able to hang on another caused up to day. We found many $50 billion homeowners that in damage! couldn’t pry loose

by their insurance company when they sustain covered damage. As a homeowner, you are responsible for understanding your policy in order to represent your claim properly which is why it is always best to have representation.

We found many homeowners that couldn’t pry loose insurance funds insurance funds while others were bounced from FEMA to banks to brokers. We worked for months to help people become whole again. Walking through Union Beach, NJ, a few months after Superstorm Sandy made landfall, we met a couple, Mr. and Mrs. X, who had lost almost everything. There was not much left standing of the building they once called home. We explained that we were public adjusters and were there to help. The looks on their faces told us that they had not been offered help up to this point – it had already been almost three months! They had been told by their insurance company that the extensive damage to the outside of their home was not covered and that much of the flood damage inside the home was also not covered. We explained that we work for the public to ensure they are properly paid

While they may never recover fully from the emotional experience they endured, at least they had a place to turn for assistance during one of the most devastating times of their lives.

Do You Choose the Blue Door or the Red One?

By Lisa Fitzpatrick

When sleeping women wake – mountains move – Chinese Proverb Sue had been living a life of quiet desperation for years. When she sought coaching, it became clear that Sue had chosen the blue door most of her adult life. The blue door is the path of safety and certainty. In Sue’s case, she had taken the blue door by studying a law degree to please her parents, even though she secretly desired to become a writer. Although she’d always had a quiet sense that there should be more to life, she’d unhappily stayed in the legal profession for years. To escape, she’d married a wealthy man. Her comfort zone soon became years of monotony as a stay-at-home mother: crying babies, piles of laundry, dirty dishes, making

beds and constant meal preparation. Sue had chosen marriage and motherhood in order to stay within her comfort zone. Deep within her, dreams of becoming a writer were still there but had become increasingly difficult for her to entertain. To escape, She was also secretly resentful she’d of her husband and blamed him for her unhappiness. married a

wealthy When she finally sent her man youngest child to school, Sue looked towards re-entering the workforce. Desperate to understand her lack of clarity and her feelings of deep depression, Sue came to me for coaching. Through coaching, I supported Sue to rediscover her strengths and gain clarity about her natural gifts. Sue was able to articulate her desire to be a writer aloud for the first time in years.

where she’d been blaming others, Sue made a courageous paradigm shift. She started to take 100% responsibility for everything she was able to control and influence in her life.

Through the coaching process, Sue learnt how it felt to choose the red door instead of the blue one. Choosing the red door meant stepping into uncertainty. It meant moving toward her dreams and desires which was frightening and exciting. Taking the red door meant taking the road less travelled She started by not settling for the to take 100% status quo and reaching responsibility for her highest potential. Choosing the red door also meant that the mountain of fear, desperation and the resentment that she held towards her husband started to shift and in its place stood a new world of possibilities.

Sue found herself walking alongside other courageous souls who had also chosen the red door instead of the blue one. Some of her old blue-door friends resisted the changes she was making and drifted away. But by honouring the calling on her life, no matter how scary or uncertain it felt, Sue was finally able to embrace the music that wanted to play itself out in the world through the gift of her writing.

Craniosacral and Myofascial By Barbara Boxwell

Release Therapy As a practicing licensed massage therapist focusing on Craniosacral and Myofascial Release Therapy, I am primarily concerned with the body and how it functions. Both Dr. John Upledger, DO, OMM and John Barnes, PT have shown me techniques that can be used on clients who have chronic conditions not subject to solutions offered by traditional means. Ruth (not her real name) came to me several years ago. She had fallen on her left elbow and the impact caused pain in her shoulder. Ruth’s previous treatments before coming to me included cortisone shots, deep tissue massage which caused full body spasms, and three months of physical therapy twice a week. With

the physical therapy, she was told that the only thing which would really give her relief was surgery. These treatments, as good as they are in many situations, did not help her. When Ruth came to see me, she was in enough pain that she was not able to extend her arm sideways more than 35 degrees. I had her demonstrate this for me. She lay on the table on her back and I began to work on the left shoulder. I gently placed one hand under her shoulder and the other one on top, melding and blending my hands with the muscles in between them.

she was in enough pain that she was not able to extend her arm sideways more than 35 degrees

Ruth returned one more time to be sure that there were no further restrictions. This was about four years ago and the pain has never returned.

This gentle touch is not forceful. It is supportive. Supportive enough to give the client’s body the reassurance that it can do what needs to be done to heal. Soon the muscles between my hands began to throb. This is known as a therapeutic pulse. About ten minutes later, the throbbing diminished and the tissue had released the restrictions in the muscles. I held Ruth’s arm at the elbow and wrist and slowly moved the arm above her head to determine whether the issue was indeed freed from its tightness. As I did this I asked Ruth to please stop me if she felt any pain. There was no more pain. She was amazed at this process as

Dr. John Upledger would have described this situation as an energy cyst created by the impact of the elbow hitting the ground during Ruth’s fall. The physical energy created by the impact had nowhere else to go but into the shoulder. At the present time, there are no tests to see or verify energy cysts, but I facilitate they do exist and they the healing can be dispelled.

You’re Part of the Business Revolution (whether you know it or not)

by Angella Johnson

You can feel it, can’t you? It’s time to do business differently. What used to work, no longer works. Following someone else’s formula for success equals disaster every single time. What happens often is this cycle of doing oldschool business: You think you know what your message is, so you throw something together and put up a website. You may even put together some Facebook ads (or think you should) and put some posts out on social media. You create an e-book or

video as your opt-in gift for your website to start building your email list. You are officially open for business right? So you wait. And wait……. Why aren’t the clients beating down your door? Why aren’t people calling you to do business with you after you meet them at a networking event?

Why isn’t this working?!!! It must be your message. So three weeks into your business, you go back to your message and you change it. This is after spending months on your website. You may even tell yourself that you could work with “anyone” because everyone needs what you have.

31 www.coachingandsuccess.com

You start marketing yourself again. But it’s really not marketing, it’s more like subtle suggestions and hinting. People don’t really know what you do and you start getting frustrated and worried about money. You say things like “Marketing doesn’t work,” “Networking doesn’t work…” Any of this sound familiar? Throughout this process, people lose their faith, their income, their passion and vision, and if they don’t break the cycle, they’ll eventually quit. Over 50% of businesses fail within three years and it’s a higher percentage for women.

Do businesses fail? Or do people just quit? Here are the steps to build your business to be sustainable, profitable and create a big impact in the world.

What Are You Making

Your Weight Mean?

Are you struggling to lose 10-50lbs? Weight never means just weight. We often make our extra weight mean some-thing about our self-worth. When we make our weight mean we are awful or ugly or inadequate, then we go off and binge eat or emotionally eat or starve ourselves. Many of my clients come to me initially with this perspective, and they do not even realize it. They have been on the hamster wheel of weight loss diets, trends, powders, pills…….. Nothing works. Do you feel like you have tried everything? I was once there myself. I would go to work, come home, binge eat, sleep, and wake up only to find life on repeat.

By Jessica McCleskey Hood The more I was fearful of REALLY living my life, the more weight I gained. And the more I gained, the more I wanted to HIDE, and the more failure and depres-sion I experienced. A vicious cycle, indeed! Are you making your weight mean something negative about you? Imagine. What if weight was just weight? What I’ve found is that this is the case with myself as well as the hundreds of women I’ve worked with.

I was once there myself

Who we are inside is untouchable and no matter what size you are, the more you realize how valuable you are, the more energy and optimism you will have. The more you will live your life! And, guess what?! The more you live your life, the easier it is to release your weight!

I held nearly 60 extra pounds on my body while going through this process.

33 www.coachingandsuccess.com

My most EFFECTIVE SECRET to sensual, sustainable weight loss is this:

And then one day, the bingeing no longer matched self-love.


The sabotaging based on fear and lack began to recede, and self-love was on the rise.


Deeply penetrating, unwavering, orgasmic, creative, mystical self-love, and weight loss.

EVERY TIME. APPLY AND REPEAT. OFTEN. AND, WITH GRATITUDE FOR YOUR CHOICE. In the days of my incessant binge eating, I finally hit a point where I was ready to wake up. Exhausted by my reality, I CHOSE to reevaluate the root of my almost 60 pounds of extra padding. It all began with telling myself, “Even though I am choosing to binge eat on raw cookie dough or muffin batter, I love who I am.” This went on for months. I was the nanny scarfing down the kids’ Halloween candy while hiding in the kitchen, but with, “I love myself. I trust my process.”

If you are FINALLY ready to lose the weight, I invite you to a complimentary Sensual Weight Loss Breakthrough Session.

The more I was fearful of REALLY living my life, the more weight I gained

We will go into your personal weight story and you will receive unique tips that you can implement right away! I want to connect with you on a personal level so that you may start living your life more fully and lose the weight permanently!

What Walks in the Mother Runs in the Child By Catie Kirke A couple of years ago, when she was a teenager, my daughter started saying “I feel fat”, “I don’t look good in these clothes” and “I need to lose weight”. It was history repeating itself as I had said the same things to myself as a teenager and, in reality, had also said them as a woman. I remember saying to her “Honey, you are beautiful. It’s not about the size of your bum,

it’s about the size of your heart and the purpose that you have in life. It’s about self-respect and self-love”. Here I was saying this to my daughter but the cold hard truth was that I was not truly living it. And I never had. They were just words. It was this significant moment in my life that beckoned me to walk a different path - as I believe that what walks in the mother runs in the child. It was time for me to draw a line It was time in the sand and walk for me to my talk. I needed to draw a line in learn to love myself and to discover more the sand and of the person I was walk my talk inside - what drove me to behave in certain ways and why I did what I did (and why I didn’t do what I didn’t do).

it’s all possible when you decide to make your life a masterpiece and learn to love yourself I began studying human behaviour and life coaching at Australia’s leading coaching institute and created my signature coaching program, which was the genesis of the ‘ART Your Life’ phenomenon. I became a learning machine and expanded my knowledge and skills by becoming an NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) Master Practitioner and Trainer, Extended Disc Behavioural Profile Specialist and Trainer and Values Pendulum Practitioner. I now proudly own and manage one of Australia’s most successful life coaching businesses. ART Your Life is about profound change - it’s all possible when you decide to make your life a masterpiece and learn to love yourself, your body and your life from the inside out. The program’s unique mindset and mindfulness

workshops, personal coaching, functional fitness, diet-free philosophy, accountability and motivation, ignites personal power and completely transforms lifestyles, health and happiness. ART has opened the door for women to learn, share and express themselves in a safe and non-judgemental environment. It is cutting-edge, contemporary and as real as it gets.

I finally understood how I worked and what I needed to do to be happy

Solo mother of two Tammy, 35, says “This program helped me turn my whole life around.” After countless programs and ‘self-help’ Leanne, 46, says “I finally understood how I worked and what I needed to do to be happy. I have completely changed my mindset and it has changed my life.” Shirley, 58, spent the last three decades of her marriage ‘going through the motions’ and now says “The intimacy is back and the spark has well and truly been rekindled.”

Catie Kirke When the negative selftalk about body image, size and weight was parroted back to her by her daughter, Catie Kirke from Australia knew she needed to make a change. Now she helps women all around Australia and beyond to rediscover their appetite for life, and to love their bodies and themselves. She has become known as the ‘Ultimate Go To Woman’ by females looking to create a life they love.

Manifesting a Career By Jessica Graves Out of Passion Maya Angelou said, “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I love this quote because it is SO TRUE! And the truth in this quote is one reason why I love my work. I love the rush of creativity feeding off of creativity. I also love working with people— brainstorming to cultivate a creative force that we can all benefit from. I started Graves Writing & Publishing, Inc. because I wanted to bring this perspective to clients who want big business writing expertise with a more personal touch. Some of my biggest passions, besides my family, include writing, books, organization, and helping others. My dream is to manifest a career out of these passions. I also want to focus on being creative and helping others do the same.

To understand how I got here, I’ll provide a little background. I began my career as a scientist, working in a research lab for two years. While I enjoyed certain aspects of this job, like the problem solving and the collaboration with other scientists, I knew this position wasn’t fulfilling me in the way I wanted. I was looking for something that allowed me utilize my science background, but was more focused on writing. So I joined a My dream is technical writing team at my company.

e v o L With and itude Grat By Adrienne Santana In June of 2014, I became a best-selling internationally published author. As founder of Legacy of the Lotus, I had originally set my goals on raising funds for non-profit organizations involved in giving children who are currently in or leaving adverse circumstances at home, the much needed support in their community. However, it was through the experience of writing my own chapter for Motherhood Dreams & Success that I became inspired to help others obtain the same feeling of empowerment and triumph I had found.

Now, as a Creative Legacy Guide, in addition to raising funds, I not only offer my skills as a writer and an editor, I also help others find empowerment by writing we must their legacies. I believe first change as we speak from the the way abundance of our hearts we have the power to manifest we think and bring to life our heart’s most simple and greatest

39 www.coachingandsuccess.com

I also help others find empowerment by writing their legacies desires. Through my experience, in order to heal from any type of emotional turmoil, or to change a characteristic within ourselves, we must first change the way we think. This is where I developed a Creative Legacy Catalyst Program. I take four basic fundamentals and a creative approach by applying them not only to what we write, but also showing how these very principles, when applied to our writing, can bring a new understanding of our past, present and future, thus bringing about healing and change. In essence, you not only learn how to write, you also learn your “truth” and heal with the change. The more you write, the more you learn. I must admit that being a part of an anthology has brought even more to me than just

empowerment. It has also opened up a door to another passion I never knew existed, a new dream, to work with high school students in developing their writing skills and giving them the opportunity to publish their writings in anthologies. The larger dream in all of this for me The more is to eventually be able to you write, offer scholarships in the liberal and literary arts the more fields. This, I believe, would you learn give students an edge as they enter college and the work force, not only in their written communication skills but also the confidence and empowerment of knowing they too can achieve their dreams. If there were a word of advice I could give to you, it would be “Patience Makes Her Perfect Work” and if there were one gift I could give, it would be for the state of the heart to be one of love and gratitude. Those two mottos are what I do my best to live by every day now and I have learned that for as long as I stick to the truth, God grants the desires of my heart every time.

Adrienne Santana Adrienne Santana and her husband, Tony, share three wonderful children and two grandchildren. Adrienne attributes all the honor to God for the life he has given her. As founder of “Legacy of The Lotus Fund” she works to raise funds for organizations which support children in need and offers her skills as a writer and editor. However, it is through her Creative Legacy Catalyst program that she shows others how to find empowerment through writing.

Being Unapologetically, Authentically You By Luv Alston Being Your most Authentic Self is realizing that You Matter! What You think, feel, create and experience Matters. Then, Embracing Your Choice of “You” as a precious and important gift! Authenticity is about unearthing Your most genuine, true, real and undoubted Self in Your most Imperfect Perfection. From birth throughout Our young adulthood, others Imprint on Us Their belief of who We are or “should” be. Some healthy and wonderful imprinting occurs as do unhealthy thoughts and beliefs about who Others see Us as. Unhealthy imprinting is often born out of: fear, intimidation, rejection, anger, abandonment, jealousy, pain and misery. We often experience Our world, environment and Others as happening to Us as adults. Our lack of Self-study ensures that We harbor subconscious beliefs that are often untrue

and can show up as a lack of ability to take responsibility for Our adult choices in Our own lives. Many Women tell Me that They feel as though They have lost Themselves to children, spouses, family, friends, their job and the world... What They are really saying is that They are choosing to get with someone else’s idea of who They “should” Be! For You My Dearest Heart! Your most Authentic You requires: Courage and diligence to emerge to undertake intense Self-Study.

We require no need for forgiveness for being a Woman


Understand that Being Your most Authentic Self also requires patience, desire, ability to choose Your behaviors, work through Your fears of rejection, abandonment and people pleasing.

Embracing Your Divine Gifts If someone were to ask me, “What is the one thing the world needs more of?” I think I would have to answer that the world needs more people to tap into their Divine Gifts. I know that isn’t what would normally pop into the mind of most people, but it’s something I think about a lot, being a Divine Gifts Coach, and I’ve decided that embracing and learning how to use their spiritual gifts would be the thing that would make the most difference in people’s lives on an individual basis – and hence, if everybody did it, it would change the world.

By Lindsey Rainwater a very empowering step. More and more people are waking up to the fact that they have gifts, and many of them are deciding to try to learn more about them, even though society still shuns the subject for the most part. But accepting this unseen part of you is just another step in loving yourself completely, and saying ‘yes’ to your needs and making the best life possible for yourself and those around you.

When you make a decision to discover, embrace, and hone your Divine Gifts, you take

“What is the one thing the world needs more of?”

As a coach, I take you by the hand and help you to dig into your mind and spirit to find what kind of potential resides in there.

People have completely changed their lives by we clean embracing their out a lot of gifts, sometimes past issues just because they no and energy longer feel like they blockages are living with a void where their gifts ought to be.

How? Hire a Life Coach. Why? Because you have a dream and you want to see it come to fruition. When? Starting today! Life will bring its fair share of challenges and you might even think that you’ve been burdened with more hardships than most. But it is not how many challenges you’ve faced in the past or will face in the future; instead, your success in life is determined by how well you meet those challenges. Successfully meeting life challenges requires you to use your own specialized problem-solving skills. You even have to learn new ones to appropriately address

unfamiliar situations so that you can advance to a higher level of achievement. Solution: You have to make plans to succeed. If you do nothing, you are inviting failure.

This approach is solutiondriven, provides assessment and is dedicated to motivating and helping you stay on track to achieving your goals in a timely manner. As a child, I use to love dancing, singing, and acting. I found these activities to be a lot of fun. My dance instructor would make me and my team members practice every day until we got the moves just right. We didn’t like the long practice hours but the activity became even more enriching and enjoyable when we got the chance to perform our dance moves in front of an applauding and cheering audience. In short, we got to show off our talent! This is one of the most important aspects of success. Who will applaud my accomplishment? In others words: Who will validate me? Some people may frown upon the idea that most people need validation to feel that they have succeeded at something.

I have been able to encourage women to take a second look at themselves and fall in love all over again! as far as the latest fashion trend goes, because sometimes as women we get stuck in a look and forget that we should be willing to tweak something about ourselves and look every so often even if we have it all together!

Time to say “NO” to Suffering in Silence By Eda Hardy Perhaps you’ve felt frustrated, insecure, and emotionally traumatised as if you’ve lost your resilience. To make things worse, perhaps feelings of depression, helplessness and loneliness have arisen for no apparent reason. These are the roadblocks that most people face in this fast-paced world. I see many clients experience more than two or more of these symptoms, usually an indication of losing the connection with your inner self. However, after even just one session with me, my customers see the difference in their lives. They become lighter, happier and feel more at ease. They often say “What did you do? I haven’t felt this good in years” which is music to my ears. It is an honour to see that my private Skype sessions, programs, transformational day and healing retreats transform people and they feel

alive once again. I also assure them that they will get all the necessary tools to help them stay happy and healthy. The result is never temporary; it is for an entire lifetime. You can always book a no-obligation 20 minute discovery session with me to find out how I can help you to find happiness and fulfilment in your life. I am an emotional wellness practitioner. I help people overcome their emotional challenges to give them the freedom to follow their passion so that they

“What did you do? I haven’t felt this good in years”

can lead a happy and fulfilling life and achieve their life mission. I will guide you through the right steps to happiness and fulfilment that you deserve. The emotional state that you will reach will be beyond your wildest dreams. I want to give you an opportunity to master your happiness and therefore your future. No matter what storms life brings your way, you will know how to get up and feel good again. Due to our very busy lives, we tend to become disconnected from our true selves and rely on outside sources to find contentment and happiness; this sort of happiness doesn’t last long. We start creating barriers and walls within that stop us from living fully. Most people have forgotten who they are, where they come from, and how far they have made it. They don’t recognise the person they’ve become for better or for worse and neither are they aware of their beliefs or values. I help people break through self-imposed barriers and limiting beliefs, and support them as they identify with their values

and beliefs, thereby attaining happiness. I also have various structured Emotional Mastery Programs which are very popular. The first action I want you to take is to make a choice and decide what you want to change in your life right now. Not tomorrow or next week - right now.

a practical answer a massive A simple impact question

By Nicole van Hattem In my own mind, I bravely called out to the Universe - “Show me the next step!” Now that might not seem such a brave question to ask, but I knew that I would get an answer, and that getting an answer would compel me to create more changes in my life. Changes that, quite frankly, scared the heck out of me! I knew from experience that simple questions, asked with great seriousness and total commitment to whatever answer may come, have a huge impact on our lives. I also knew that I was destined to leave my corporate killer career and move into health and healing. What I didn’t know was how to take the next step. So I asked. At the time, it seemed such a simple question, but within days of asking that question, I got the answer. Within weeks I had signed up for a coach training course

that would see me not only transform my own health but equip me to educate, inspire and coach change in the lives of thousands of my clients. Through my coaching, I have helped my clients discover the deeply honest, heartfelt questions they needed to ask themselves in order to overcome depression, eating disorders, lose weight, heal chronic health conditions, rekindle love in their At the time, relationships, create it seemed lives they love, change such a simple careers, transform their question finances and many other successes.

you must create silence in your mind

The secret to success is to make space to hear the right questions, to ask the questions with intense desire for the answer, and to take committed action when the answer comes. To know the questions which are right for you, you must create silence in your mind. In that silence you can listen to your inner voice, because you already know your truth but perhaps you have forgotten to believe in and trust yourself. In a world filled with constant distractions, it can seem like an impossible task to clear the mental clutter and listen to our inner guiding voice, but here are two simple ways to get you started:

Switch off! Turn off the computer, internet, TV and radio. Remove Whatsapp, Instagram, Twitter,

Pinterest, Facebook, and any online games from your smart phone. For a few hours, a day, a few days…… or even longer.

Get naked!

you are brave, whole and perfect exactly as you are right now

NO! I’m not talking about taking all your clothes off but about becoming bare, simple, natural. Get out into a natural earthy environment. Anywhere where you can immerse yourself in the natural rhythms and vibrations of the planet, to breathe, to rest and realign yourself.

Even these two simple regular practices will begin to create energetic space where you can observe your mind, gently discover the questions you need to ask and to invite the answers. You will soon remember that you are brave, whole and perfect exactly as you are right now, and that you can manifest your greatest joy and success. It all begins with a simple question.

Become the You, You Want to Be in 5 Easy Steps

By Lisa Pattenden

Help, I’ve Found a Lump! My first experience of finding a lump was so scary, after having just watched my mother pass away from it. The family history is high with breast cancer on both sides so finding a lump for the first time was a massive scare. I wasn’t sure what to do; obviously you go and get a mammogram and have experts figure it out but I really felt frozen. As if maybe it was not really there and maybe if I ignore it, it won’t really be there. So, after a lot of processing (I was 35 when I found the first lump) I finally made an appointment and went in to get a

mammogram. It was not fun. My sister said ‘prepare to feel like your boob was just put under a car tire and run over a few times.’ She was not lying about that! They put you in a hospital gown and move you around in the cold x-ray room into many different positions. You end up being more personal with the technician than you cared to be. After she was done, I changed into my clothes and I was asked to wait in a different waiting room - another cold and ‘clinical’ looking room. Plastic chairs

maybe if I ignore it, it won’t really be there

You end up being more personal with the technician than you cared to be

and generic walls that don’t speak to anyone. It screamed of people being sick. They called me back in to get an ultrasound done. When they did the ultrasound they confirmed that my lump was a cyst. It was 13cms long going from the left side of my breast into the back of my breast. It was large. The doctor told me that it was normal, that as women get older it happens. The technician working with him asked if I wanted her to drain it. She did it while I looked at the screen and I watched it disappear. The technician then asked me if I wanted to see what came out. I told her ‘Not unless you want me to vomit on you!’ It didn’t help that she said, ‘It’s only green stuff.’ Yeah, that did it for me, I vomited! I definitely did not need to hear that!

I asked the doctor what causes these I am a firm cysts and could I prevent them? He believer in said, ‘There’s nothing you knowing you can do about what it is them, it just happens that you will as you get older.’ I told flow with him ‘I will Google it then, and find answers.’ A shame really because there are loads of resources when you look. I thought it would be a good idea to pass this information on. I find cysts now and actually go through the same thing over and over again when I do. I thought it would be helpful for everyone to have this information so there are no surprises for you. I have had some considerable results with my 5 step program. I am a firm believer in you knowing what it is that you will flow with. I am happy to work until you are more confident in moving forward. I’d love to hear from you.

I will Google it then, and find answers
