Lifestyle Goddess Ann Marie Rubertone On “Seeing” Energetically

Posted by Daniel Borgertpoepping on 1/23/18 8:00 AM

We pass hundreds—even thousands—of people on the street every day, usually without a second look. Yet, that’s not quite the case for Ann Marie Rubertone, who possesses the gift of “seeing” energy. "I can see and feel the frequences that others radiate, so I understand 'energetically' what they are thinking," she explains. 

This powerful form of seeing and empathizing perhaps evolved from Ann Marie's difficult and diverse background, which includes overcoming domestic violence, abuse, infertility, multiple sclerosis, and drug addiction. Although Ann Marie once felt that she was never good enough and that she would never fit in, her journey of recovery has been inspiring.

Tammy Coin: Unlocking the Next Generation of Thought Leaders

Posted by Daniel Borgertpoepping on 1/22/18 8:00 AM

For Tammy Coin, wellness is not a destination; it’s a magical adventure through a hall of mirrors hidden behind locked doors. Tammy also believes that the key to unlocking those doors and understanding the confusing reflections in that hall lies in developing a conscious awareness of our own life stories.

Tammy's story begins with a history of childhood trauma and abuse and complex PTSD, factors which created a strong sense of separation from other people within her... something which other survivors of trauma can certainly relate to and understand. "We often have feelings of not being enough, being empty, unseen, unheard, invisible and like nobody gets us,” Tammy articulates. “Naturally, I attract clients with similar histories. There is no greater gift than to feel seen and heard... to feel that somebody ‘gets it.’”

Your True Colors: Maureen Hayes Talks Finding Purpose

Posted by Alexandra Comeaux on 1/21/18 8:00 AM

Maureen Hayes' passions have always been centered around aiding and inspiring others... a flame fed by her unique ability to see the potential in others that they sometimes are not able to see themselves. Within a year of receiving the Master Life Coach Designation after completing the Advanced Life Coaching program at SWIHA, Maureen formed “Awaken Your Spirit – You, Only Better,” her coaching and consulting business focused on helping her clients live truly happy, fulfilled, and peaceful lives.

Maureen happily uses one of the tools she was introduced to while at SWIHA: the “True Colors” personality assessment from Carolyn Kalil, a coach education counselor, and author of Follow Your True Colors to the Work You Love. “I love to help people awaken to their authentic selves, and everything I do comes from that love,” Maureen explains. “It quickly became evident to me just how incredibly enlightening it was for my clients when I used True Colors, and so I reached out to Carolyn Kalil and through her course became a certified facilitator.”

Love is All You Need: Gabriela Milan on Becoming Your Own Guru

Posted by Tim Barber on 1/19/18 8:00 AM

When Gabriela Milan was 16, she was ready to end it all. Struggling with eating disorders, health problems, and depression, she had just about hit rock bottom. At that point in time, she felt like there would be no end to her misery unless she put a stop to it herself. In that dark hour of desperation, someone noticed her and took the time to really talk to her. Those 10 minutes of conversation saved her life. While Gabriela doesn’t even remember what it was that he said to her in those moments that helped her to find herself, she does remember how it made her feel: “It gave me the hope I needed. It shook me. It woke me up. It reminded me that I was special. I promised myself that I had to do that for someone else someday.”

A Guiding Star: How Rima Desai is Helping Women Re-Discover Their Confidence

Posted by Tim Barber on 1/17/18 8:00 AM

If you’re a mother, a woman going through a divorce, or struggling with relationship problems, Life Coach Rima Desai wants you to realize that you are not alone. Growing up in India, Rima felt deprived of love and burdened with responsibility from a young age. She has experienced first-hand what it’s like to feel constantly overwhelmed, underappreciated, hopeless, depressed, and abandoned, and she knows the impact of negative self-judgement and what it can do to a person. Yet instead of letting these experiences weigh her down, Rima has instead chosen to bravely dedicate herself to giving women what she always longed for herself: a sense of being supported. I love supporting women,” Rima shares. “Women have been historically the most ignored population of all. Our needs as women have been suppressed culturally, as well by ourselves, and we have so much judgement towards ourselves…it is unbelievable!”

Growing, Changing, Expanding: Jillian Holper on Her Surprising Client Base

Posted by Fox Emm on 1/14/18 8:00 AM

As our understanding of mental health continues to evolve, it’s becoming clearer than ever that postpartum struggles with depression, anxiety, and trauma can have a significant impact on entire families, from the new mothers who are wrangling with the challenges of having a baby to their partners’ aiming to adequately support them. Stepping in to serve in this sector is Jillian Holper, a life coach and hypnotherapist with a passion for providing guidance to women throughout some of the hardest parts of their lives. “I knew from the get-go that supporting moms with postpartum anxiety and depression was something I wanted to do and was passionate about,” Jillian explains.

What Jillian didn’t anticipate was having a secondary specialty show up in her practice. “Smoking and weight management clients just kind of fell into my lap,” she recalls. “It was never part of the plan, yet I realized this is something my clients are seeing significant results from and that feels just as good as the shifts I am facilitating with my mamas!”
