Writer for Open to Hope Foundation.Life is unpredictable. Even the best laid plans can become derailed by external circumstances. When something difficult happens questions arise. How could this happen? Why me? What could I have done differently? If only I could go back to that moment and do something different. Could I have made a difference?
Questions help us to make sense of something that feels senseless. Finding answers and solutions can be difficult. Processing your experiences and making a plan unique to your life with a professional can be very helpful.
Through my work in the helping professions and life experience, I have learned that to maintain balance and well-being, our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual selves must be in alignment with the well-being we desire. Grief robs us of our future with our loved one. Illness robs us of life for many years. Whatever the external event that caused your heartache...your life has been irreparably changed. What happened was not your fault. How you bring yourself back together is your work.
We hurt ourselves when we don't honor our loved ones by living our lives to the best of our ability. This is true even in the most difficult of situations.
OneLife.Coach sessions can help you to explore the impact of what happened, on your life. Explore ways to fully express your feelings and yet not create continued feelings of overwhelm. Bring one or more areas of your life into alignment, by identifying the areas that have been changed, listening for those places that tug you back into life and then having the courage to follow the call. The grief journey is allowing your new self to emerge and to develop a plan that increases your well-being, and improves resilience toward a path of wholeness.
When change is stressful, which it always is, even when it means moving toward what one desires, the body responds by producing stress hormones to get through the changes. Unfortunately, stress toxins deplete the body. When stress is prolonged, the body has little opportunity to reset itself and eliminate cortisol over time. Supporting the body with high quality, easy to prepare nutrition and intermittent fasting during and after a traumatic event, can help release toxins and shed unnecessary inflammation to facilitate wellness. I cannot tell you the number of parents I see who become ill within a year of their child's death. My program can help interrupt that outcome.

Open to Our Angels
Connection Through Openness and Unconditional Love
Open to Our Angels is an online group developed to maintain connection to a loved one who has passed through the veil.
Have you ever noticed that when you observe a sign, dreams, or experiences that feel like they are from your loved ones, your energy shifts and you feel a little lighter somehow? Wanting connection to our loved ones is healthy and normal. The lightness is the feeling the LOVE for them in the vacancy they left behind.
Through sharing and hearing the stories of others who share this desire, we solidify our experience and open ourselves to more.
