Guidance from Within offers Life Architect Coaching and Experi-Mentor guidance to individuals seeking to expand their life experiences through the exploration of self-discovery, self-design and self-expansion. Utilizing various modalities including Release Journaling, MINDSCAPING, Energy-based modalities such as Feng Shui, Mayan and Moon Phase planning and the power revealed through artistic expansion using Mandalas, clients are moved from feeling stuck to expanding their boundaries and spreading their metaphorical wings to soar to heights they may never have believed possible.
My Story in Brief
In 2016, I sat in my home office and realized I was not as content with my life as I led people to believe. I had several unrealized goals that stretched back to the mid-1990’s – like having a story published in a Chicken Soup for the Soul book – something I’d coveted doing from the moment the books made their debut.
I’d seen all of two States – New York and California – and I harbored a secret crush on those friends who could list off visiting more than 8 or 10 States in those Facebook quizzes you sometimes see shared. I yearned to visit far off places like Costa Rica, Europe, even Japan! Yet, here I sat that beautiful August morning, reviewing where I was in life, what I’d accomplished and weighing it all against what I had yet to do, see and experience! And, my heart quivered as it sunk with the realization that I’d wasted SO much time!
You see, I had just turned 60 that March and as I sat in reflection that morning, I recalled a day 30 years earlier when I’d been filled with the excitement to realize I had 30 whole years ahead of me to do all kinds of amazing things. I was a goal-setter, a go-getter and a full on Type-A personality and from the age of 17 to 39 I’d accomplished a large number of goals that I’d set out to achieve. I recognized that in 30+ years a whole lot can happen! When I was 30 I was so excited to take on everything I envisioned possible for myself and my life.
Then, on a crisp fall afternoon in, 1993 as my family and I headed out for a drive our car was hit from behind. The impact was low but the way in which my body reacted to the unexpected jolt resulted in over 2 decades of struggling to
regain my life as I battled against the ravages of something called Fibromyalgia! That first decade after the accident shattered my spirit, accosted my soul and began to erode my confidence to ever be the person I had been prior to it. I had short-term memory issues, constant, debilitating pain throughout my body, light sensitivity, migraines, numbness and tingling in my extremities if I stood too long, sat too long or walked too much. Fatigue forced me to lie down far too often, sleep way too much and miss out on life events too frequently. But, the most difficult thing? Was how others saw me. How they struggled to understand why I suddenly had no energy, was in pain all the time, couldn’t recall names or even remember what I’d just been talking about with them. And I began to believe the Doctors who told me this was all in my head!
But, this site & how I now work with clients is testament to what is possible when you don’t give up on YOU or on your dreams of who you truly choose to be! All the work I’ve undertaken for myself to bring me to where I am today has served me well and I am grateful for every moment’s lesson. All that I have discovered, explored, experimented with and embodied is now also embodied here within my site and in the work I now share with others. I’m honored to act as a guide to others who are on their own journey, who are experiencing their own struggles and coming to their own realizations that life is moving so quickly and TODAY is the best day yet to make a decision, reach a definite conclusion, to step INTO the experiences you truly desire to embody, embrace and exude!
Welcome! We are now ready to meet & work together because YOU are here and I don’t believe in accidents! Your journey to experience your next amazing step toward your next incredible path’s journey is now here!
My Core Work
Our journey from childhood to adulthood can be a tricky one to maneuver, particularly since we have so many influences during that period of time. From birth to adulthood we are influenced first by our primary caregiver which is often a mother figure, then our influencer reverts to a father figure, then on to adults outside our familial environs such as teachers or neighbours. As we enter teen-hood we are more influenced by our peers and as we enter adulthood, influencers include co-workers, relationship partners and others. Through all this journey, we are unconsciously adopting various habits, attitudes and reactions to life around us including how we react to stress, anxiety, loss, hardship and things like financial strain and doing so from those around us. It’s no wonder then, that sometimes we find ourselves acting or reacting in ways that feel less like us and more like others. Release Journaling is a method that helps us peel back the onion on who we are. Investigate what we’ve taken on and helps us shed that which we no longer desire to carry or dwell on. Almost every client begins here because this work is that important to your growth ahead.
Through a unique and powerful technique known as MINDSCAPING, you have the opportunity to view your past, present and future in a unique but powerful way, through the lense of a multidimensional visual experience of MINDSCAPING! The opportunity to create a richly woven landscape that encourages transformation in your present situation while also planting seeds that foster growth, transformation and change in your future. MINDSCAPING is all about you and your Metaphorical Symbology – the way you view your world through the power of metaphorical symbols, (landscapes that include elements such as mountains, roads, pathways and more), all have particular significance to you in ways that are meaningful to your unconscious and to your life. Your personal mapping experience fosters growth, expansion and success in your life in a way that is perfect just for you. This is no one else’s journey but yours. MINDSCAPING is a powerful way to change your direction in life & experience growth, resolve conflict, smooth rocky stretches and break through those things that may have been holding you back! And an added bonus of a MINDSCAPING session is how relaxed, focused and clear you may find yourself afterward!
ENERGETICS allows each of us to shape, transform and expand our lives through the ability we all hold to work with and manage our Energetic selves in a way in which we are, as often as possible, honoring our vibrational states. My Energetics programs are designed to honor you at the space from where you are joining us, meaning, no matter where you are in your journey of growth, you are now here to take your next steps. Many of my clients need assistance managing their environs – their home, office or space where they spend a lot of their time. For them, I offer a taste of Intuitive Feng Shui which is often the most important step in their Energetics journey with me. I often pair that with self-energetic management for those requiring assistance with feelings of stress, overwhelm or anxiousness. In this area I also call on Experts in key areas of experience for clients who are interested in more indepth management techniques as well as deeper exploration. Clients who achieve Energetic Management experience discover an entirely calmer, more effective way of walking through their day with power, zenfulness and more energy and gratitude for life and living.

Benefit from Release Journaling
This method of journaling is designed to assist you in releasing from emotionally based events, experiences including loss, hurts and the desire forgive or be forgiven. This self-paced lesson provides you with a private and gentle way to discharge emotionally charged experiences through the utilization of the automatic ideomotor response we call handwriting. Powerful in its simplicity, effective in its results. Use Release Journaling as frequently as needed to gain freedom from those things no longer serving or benefitting you.

This introductory program shares with you some key strategies in beginning with Feng Shui and experiencing the benefits of a more balanced Chi energy within your personal space. Remember, we are all Energy and how we surround ourselves with it is just as important as how we personally experience it within us.
