Episode Description

Perhaps it is a bit challenging to think of experiencing loss and grief as an ‘opportunity’. Yet, upon further reflection we discover our experience presents an opportunity to expand and evolve in ways we could never before imagine. The reason is quite simple; loss and grief slices to the core of our being. It chisels through thoughts and feelings thereby revealing beliefs and perceptions in a whole new light. It breaks through barriers that have evolved over time and clears a path for a new awareness. It creates an opportunity. An opportunity is defined as a ‘possible choice’ and we have learned that we are responsible for our thoughts, feelings and choices. Our experience has given us and opportunity to pause and review, refine and restructure our lives in a way that will benefit who we are and what we want to create. Please join me as we explore how we can use this opportunity for our highest good.

This program answers the questions “How will we respond?” “What do we intend to do now that it happened?” As we focus on our thoughts, feelings, and choices, that which is our responsibility, we create harmony in our inner world. The grief or loss we experienced becomes the catalyst to knowing and being our unique expression of the Divine in this time and space, to understand the true meaning of our presence and connectedness in this world.

My deep desire is to offer a passageway of thoughts and feelings that begin to resonate within you and nurture you as you heal. We will never be the person we were before our loss. Yet, as we embrace the process and honor the changes that will transpire, we will change in ways that we cannot yet imagine. We will re-engage in life from a new perspective. Having experienced contrast, perhaps the deepest pain we have ever known, we will ultimately experience abundance as never before. Although healing is an inward journey, you are not alone.

I spent my life focusing on ‘what I did,’ working hard to grow and expand personally and professionally; to heal. I accomplished much, yet was left with a feeling that it wasn’t quite enough. When I directed my attention to being responsible for my thoughts, feelings and choices, to making happiness my focus, to embracing ‘who I am,’ I experienced the magical melding of my physical, emotional and spiritual nature. I was compelled to go beyond my experiences, beyond my perceptions, beyond my belief systems and discover the magnificence of this time and space, to embrace the beauty within my soul, to walk with others on their journey.

I am a Certified Professional, Spiritual, Relationship and Bereavement Coach, an author, speaker, Level 3 Traditional Reiki Practitioner, and a former Certified Senior Project Manager for IBM. In my journey I overcame alcoholism through developing a spiritual way of life and practice that has spanned over30 years. A commitment to embracing life from the perspective of love supported my own healing after the death of my eldest son, SGT Tyrell Williams, USMC, and a relationship where my partner’s crack and alcohol abuse would fuel domestic violence, financial devastation, and the destruction of a dream two years in the making. From a heart-felt desire to help others, I offer a unique approach to healing and wellness. For the soul that weeps, I offer a light as you awaken to the beautiful and divine being of love that you truly are.
