If you have been impacted by depression, anxiety, chronic pain, chronic stress, PTSD, suicide, or grief
you CAN regain your personal power and live a joyful and abundant life!
I say this with complete confidence because I have intimate personal experience with all of the above.
It’s likely that you’ve found your way here because you or someone that you care about is living in pain. You may be searching for a way forward, a glimmer of hope that there is something more. An affirmation that you are enough. Restoration of your personal power. Maybe you need to connect with someone who’s been there that will “get you.”
Well, my friend, you’re in exactly the right place.
You are worthy of deeper happiness.
Yes, you. Dear, loveable, one of a kind YOU.
Know that you are awesomely powerful - even if you don't feel like it right now. However, you can't fully access all of your unique gifts or the joy that is waiting for you if pain is dominating your life.
Pain comes in many forms. Left untended, it can steal your life away. Fortunately, you don’t have to be a victim. There are ways that you can strengthen and increase your personal power to give yourself room for healing. What if you could create one more minute – one more hour – one more day where you could feel whole and – happy? Power Not Pain is about opening up and allowing healing to fill your mind, body, and spirit:
- It's about finding ways to tap into the thoughts and habits that will enable you to flourish every day.
- If that spark of joy and purpose in your spirit has been misplaced, this is where we’ll set about finding it again.
- If your personal power has been diminished by mental, emotional, or physical pain, you'll gain insights to break through and find your POWER.
- If you’ve fallen into despair and can’t quite see your way through the darkness, take my hand and let’s shine a light on your path to whole health.
Can you remember what it felt like when your first and last thoughts
of the day weren’t centered on your pain?
Everyone can use a helping hand
Each person holds so much power within themselves
that needs to be let out.
Sometimes they just need a little nudge,
a little direction, a little support, a little coaching,
and the greatest things can happen.
- Pete Carroll, Head Coach and Executive VP of the Seattle Seahawks
