I have a crush on Ram Dass, which is weird for many reasons, not the least of them being that he's dead. And if he wasn't dead, well,.....

Many of us didn't have our emotional needs met as children. Our parents may have been well-meaning, but didn't have the proper tools to attend to the complex feelings and needs of a growing child in a quickly changing world.
The result is a generation of adults, who in many ways are emotionally stunted.
Low self-esteem, feelings of
emptiness/isolation and an inability to understand and deal with one's own feelings can all be the result of childhood emotional neglect.
I'm a Certified Mindfulness Coach. I specialize in working with women 40+ who struggle with a lack of connection and a sense of unworthiness.

Hi, thanks for finding me!
I'm a former radio/tv host. A few years ago I became extremely ill , and I was eventually diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. After learning everything I could about autoimmune conditions and the effect stress has on the body both psychologicalIy and physically, I knew that I had to make some drastic life changes. Shortly after this journey began I was blind sided by the sudden death of my brother, my only sibling, my hero. I had come to a crossroads, I could curl into a fetal position and hide, or I could take control and make the choice to thrive.
I started studying psychology, mindfulness, spirituality, neuropsychology, quantum physics, and the mind-body connection. I was excited to find they all overlap, and that our untapped potential is enormous!
At first, I took what I learned and applied it to myself. The more I learned the more I tried, the more I tried, the more I grew. After a huge emotional, physical and spiritual transformation, I decided that I needed to share the exciting and empowering knowledge that I had gained, information that we SHOULD be given as children, but aren't.
I work one-on-one with people. I specialize in helping women 40+ who want to live life more FULLY and really step into their power.
My first book "Mindfulness for People Who Suck at Being Mindful", is a short, non-intimidating guide to mindful living for beginners, no matter where you are in your life and growth journey! I also have also written two in a series of books on emotions for children, 'Magnificent Milly's Magically Mindful Day" and "Fabulous Freddy's Very Bad Mood." All of my books are available on Amazon.
My blog focuses on what I consider to be the 3 pillars of a well rounded life, happiness, health and home. I share lessons that I've learned (many of them the hard way.)
I give practical, actionable tips on overcoming anxiety, changing self-defeating patterns, taking control of your mental and physical health and creating the life you were MEANT to live by becoming who you were meant to BE!
I talk about modern day mindful living, for the not TOO woo-woo.
As a broadcaster, I love doing interviews, guest hosting on podcasts and adding commentary on all things mental health, personal development and mindfulness!
Feel free to drop me a message. Keep learning and growing, we ARE magic! xo Melissa

"You've always had the power, my dear..."
We unknowingly relinquish our power at a very early age. We go through life rejoicing at, or lamenting, the hand we feel that we've been dealt. The truth is, we have a choice. We may not be able to control what comes our way, but we can ALWAYS choose how we react. and how willing we are to experience the moment as it is. That's the premise making mindful choices and living mindfully and THAT'S where the magic begins!
