If it is of interest to you, you can read more here about my personal journey I was introduced to Mind Powers with John Kehoe which ignited my own curiosity to look for what else was out there in the fields of ‘How We Think’ and ‘How We Create’ the world ‘We Choose to Live In’ , because of my own journey and success in creating my amazing life changes, I was interested in learning and discovering more, as it became my passion, I experienced more happiness and balance in my life. I wanted to share this with everyone I met, my clients, my friends, my family, with the belief that I was here to pass on all that I had been learning that was making such a difference to my health, my wellbeing, my attitude and as to who I was as a person, and give it to those who would benefit from this as I had gotten.
