The Path of Me

Humanity is being pressed to let go of everything that is not aligned and embrace the authentic self. We are creating a new world with our thoughts and actions. Many are finding the truth of who they are and allowing themselves to shine and lead and be in service. This podcast spotlights those who have found their purpose and truth and are leading by example as they serve humanity in so many ways. They have overcome adversity, trauma, poverty, and so much more. They are here to light the way for those who feel lost. This is the focus of my show, to inspire you to be your authentic self.

Jenn Baljko Walking From Bangkok to Barcelona - A 3 Year Journey
Jenn Baljko Walking From Bangkok to Barcelona - A 3 Year Journey
In 2013, Jenn Baljko and her partner Lluis came up with a crazy idea. "Before we're old and broken, let's take a long walk." They were living in Barcelona at the time, so they decided to walk from Bangkok home to Barcelona. The planning began in earnest in 2015. Then on Jenn's 44th birthday in January of 2016 the began. They felt it would be amazing. They believed in the kindness of humanity and invited that in. They came up with a term OTI which meant Open to Invitation. When they needed something along their Journey, they would literally send out a signal "OTI." People would bring them water, or invite them in for tea or coffee or to come have a meal. They were so present within themselves noticing their surroundings, or sometimes having to jump to the side of the road to avoid being run over by a truck. The presence was kind of creating this time bending experience as thoughts came and went. They were open to invitation. I love this quote by Jenn, "the person who doesn't move doesn't feel the chains." You must move and try something different, not necessarily that radical, but different that repeat the cycle you're in. Her journey was about both wonder and rigor. It was a very physically challenging journey with a 40 lb pack on their backs and no real knowing of where they would next find water or food, or shelter.  Everyday they were faced with the unknown. From the beginning she felt like they were ambassadors like electric workers laying lines down, only hers were lay lines of light and love and kindness being carried along that journey. They travelled the silk road, and walked through many countries. The pace was a bit faster than she wanted because Luis was mindful of the distance, and time and visas potentially expiring. She was hoping for more of a leisurely walk enjoying the people and cultures and maybe a day at the beach once in awhile. The walk both broke them and brought them back together, but they made it. Right before the Pandemic hit in 2019 they finished! Friends and family walked them home.

Nikki Keeth Mom of 7!
Nikki Keeth Mom of 7!
When I met Nikki Keeth, I was amazed that this petite dynamo could run a household of 9 and make it look easy. She has 7 kids under the age of 15. Logistically this means feeding an army at each meal, coordinating field trips, emails from over 30 teachers a day, managing all extra curricular activities.  I wondered just how she manages it and still gets to the crossfit gym and dance class. As an only child it came as a surprise to her that she ended up having 3 within 3 years, then after a middle child did it again! Some people choose to have no children, but she has created a large dynamic family of 9. Enjoy the show, it will give you perspective.

Freeing Yourself From the Asian/Catholic Programming with Ressel Yu
Freeing Yourself From the Asian/Catholic Programming with Ressel Yu
My conversation with Ressel Yu covered a lot of common themes found in Asian/Catholic households; Guilt and Shame, and in her experience physical abuse was common. Her feisty spirit got her into a lot of trouble with her parents who actually brought a priest in to exorcise  the "demons" in her when she was a teenager.   It took decades to recognize she was a product of her programming. From a young age she could see, hear and speak to spirit. Her parents thought she was crazy and she ended up shutting her gifts down after the exorcism. The message was clear that what she was doing was speaking to the devil.   The turning point was when one of her sons asked to go live with his dad because they were fighting so much. Losing him hit hard and caused her to really ask the question "is this all there is?"  This was the opening and beginning of her spiritual awakening. She started reading "the secret" and it resonated with her. it unlocked something, and all her gifts she had suppressed since childhood started to come back online.  She followed the breadcrumbs and started learning about crystals and quantum energy healing, she then found out about Marconics. Learn more about Marconics at https://www.marconics.com. As she went further on her journey she began to see the patterns and programs surfacing in her adult life. We repeat what we learn so she was very stern raising her children expecting what I call Asian Perfection from them.     The Asian culture values outward appearance and accomplishments more than encouraging you to be your authentic self. Being raised Catholic instills a deep well of shame and struggle; the message that you are always a sinner is reinforced and the culture frowns upon independent thinking and using discernment around information you're taught to believe. The result is an inability to think for yourself and discern your own truth without guilt.   Another program Ressel had to break was her relationship with money. Her abuse was tied to her parents financial struggles and being beaten while hearing how hard her parents work for their money and how ungrateful she is. She believed money was a source of suffering and it wasn't until she healed and released this program that true abundance came into her life.  This show is so rich in wisdom, humor and information for anyone looking to break the patterns and interrupt their ancestral programming.

Tammy Cohen - Gaining Perspective During the Pandemic
Tammy Cohen - Gaining Perspective During the Pandemic
Tammy Cohen is the Owner of TC Brand Consulting, Founder of the Global Networking Group "Women Beyond the Table," and Owner of the restaurant Eighteen in the Upper East Side in NYC. She is also a mom to 3 grown sons!  Our interview started with the impact the Pandemic had in NYC. She was struggling with the lockdown restrictions and violence in the streets. She lives in Manhattan and could hear glass shattering and looting and knew there would be no police response. It was intense. There was also uncertainty with the restaurant which switched to exclusive take out. It was all very unsettling. Around this time a colleague reached out to see how she was doing.  He invited her to a 21 day Deepak Chopra Meditation group. She immediately joined and it gave her a bit of a reset.  She did the meditation series 3 times. It reconnected her to herself and got her to go inward. It was the beginning of a 2 year journey back to herself. During this time she diversified her clientele for her consulting business, founded her networking group, started reading a lot of self help books and participating in a lot of self help workshops. Her networking group had their first retreat this past month! She became more grounded from the meditation and is working on mastering "presence" in her life. A lot of transformation took place over the course of the pandemic. We talked a lot about energy and how we attract what we are.  We are energy and consciousness and our energy is like a magnet for things in resonance to the frequency. Her new podcast is about to launch with Women Beyond the Table. So many things have changed as she has navigated her way forward. Her Global Networking Group is evolving and growing rapidly with women around the world joining. The goal was to create a safe space for women to really connect and support each other and truly celebrate each other as they pursue their business and personal goals. She has attracted a beautiful group of women and looks forward to its expansion.  We discussed her family and how she texts motivational things to her sons every single day. She wants them to know that whatever they are going through they are loved fully. She says life is like traveling a down a road and on that road are many curves and obstacles and it's sometimes a struggle to overcome them. No matter what she wants her sons to know they've got this and she's there for them. All these texts will be turned into a book to help parents connect to their children!

Best Selling Author Kute Blackson Talks about "The Magic of Surrender." Learning to let go of control is the key to creating magic in your life!
Best Selling Author Kute Blackson Talks about "The Magic of Surrender." Learning to let go of control is the key to creating magic in your life!
Transformational Speaker and Best Selling Author @Kute Blackson  joined me to talk about his new book "The Magic of Surrender." It's a book about tapping into our own magic by letting go and allowing our own magic to unfold in our lives. The book shows how surrender is a key factor in the lives of so many great people throughout history.  Our conversation encourages people to follow their soul to allow the Universe to support them. His core beliefs and knowing were shaped by many pivotal events. His father was a miraculous healer and leader of 300 churches. From an early age Kute watched him heal the blind, and the crippled walk. This opened his mind to the concept that there are no limits and everything is possible.   His mother was Japanese and his Father from Ghana. He was close to his mother who got cancer when he was just starting to thrive in the United States. He realized the value of every moment spending a week every month with her to help her with her treatments. Unfortunately she lost her battle and her courage and knowing that the soul is eternal and the body is just a garment for the soul showed Kute what freedom really looks like. There was no fear, just acceptance, she was calm and ready for the next part of her soul journey.  Kute wanted to translate the concept of surrender to help others find freedom and the magic it creates.   Surrender is not just waiting doing nothing, it's not an excuse for non action. You feel your deepest truth then align with it. His work has allowed him to awaken and inspire people across the globe to access their own inner freedom, live authentically, and fulfill their true life purpose. Surrender is letting go of control, making aligned choices, and moving forward when inspired and also pausing when necessary to allow events to unfold.   There were some differences and conflicts between Kute and his father when he told him he wouldn't take over his ministry at the age of 18. They didn't speak for a couple years. During this time there was a lot of inner work and healing happening as Kute journeyed to India, Thailand, Spain (to walk the Camino) and focused on building his own mindfulness practice.   He did a lot of inner work to face his anger towards his father and heal all the emotions around their relationship fracturing. When he was ready, he released all his expectations and decided he would unconditionally love his father regardless of his past. They have since healed their relationship in a beautiful way.  Learn more about Kute Blackson here:  Web: www.kuteblackson.com FB: https://www.facebook.com/kuteblacksonlovenowInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/kuteblackson/Twitter: https://twitter.com/kuteblacksonYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/kuteblackson09LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/kute-blackson-35755519  Follow me here: Web: https://www.alinealifecoaching.comYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/WendyHutchinson444Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mamahutch47/FB: https://www.facebook.com/wendy.hutchinson.50FB business: https://www.facebook.com/alinealifecoaching

Breaking Ancestral Patterns and Finding Myself
Breaking Ancestral Patterns and Finding Myself
It took a lot of courage to step into my authentic self and embrace her.  For over 40 years I only knew how to be who you wanted me to be and during that time I completely lost myself. I felt unworthy, I felt like I would never be truly happy, although from the outside looking in, it looked like I had everything.   My life up to that point had been shaped by my ancestral patterning and programs. Our parents repeat what they learn from their parents and their parents do the same. This is how we form our core beliefs and sense of self, but often we don't realize that all of it was formed by wounded people passing down their unhealthy patterns, it's just normal to us.    I was never taught how to hold space for myself, and by that I mean I was not able to express my feelings because that was discouraged.  Being sensitive was discouraged because it meant you were weak and vulnerable and we don't do vulnerability in our Asian Culture. When you're vulnerable the opponent can use that against you and take you down meaning you LOSE! Asians are all about winning, striving, being "successful" there is nothing prized more than monetary "success" that's the golden ticket.  I had to be shaken and stirred by certain life events to wake up and realize I wasn't being my authentic self and learn how to figure out who I am. This has been a journey that led me to not only finding myself but also my life purpose as an Ascension Coach (guide), healer, podcast host and more. I learned it's OK to be vulnerable and go deep and hold space for those wounds to seep out and heal. It's the only way to become whole and complete. You can't bypass the feeling part of it. Humans are meant to feel their feelings.  We are here to learn to master our emotional selves and come into alignment with our mind body and soul.  I wrote a book called "Finding the Path of Me" as a guide for others trying to find themselves. Copy the link here to buy: https://books2read.com/finding-the-path-of-me  It's time to stop playing this ludicrous game and own and claim who we are, to find our purpose and have the courage to be the person we have come here to be. Release the social programming and judgment.  Become the person you were born to be!   Learn more about me here:    Website: https://www.alinealifecoaching.com Facebook: wendy.hutchinson.50  Facebook: Alinea Life Coaching  Instagram: @mamahutch47

Lili Hernandez Talks About Trauma Bonding with Work and Needing Soul CPR
Lili Hernandez Talks About Trauma Bonding with Work and Needing Soul CPR
Lili Hernandez was driving to work one day and started crying.  Her 1.5 hour commute each way and stressful job as Director of an Agency serving underprivileged families was stressing her out more and more. As a licensed therapist and life coach she knew the importance of taking care of her own mental health, but was started to feel the need to make a change. For an hour she got curious, "what is this about" she asked herself and heard "I need soul CPR." In that moment she knew her soul was dying.  She was doing all the things, the massages, salt baths, meditation, gardening, but nothing was working to make her feel better. She got a therapist and they discovered her trauma bond with work. The trauma bond is when you are peak performing, but your employer or partner criticizes and demands more and more, and you think "if you try harder and do better" everything will be OK. So you double down, you work longer hours, you try to exceed expectations, but nothing is working. Tempers flare, conflicts arise, there's an outburst, then seeming resolution and you cycle like this over and over until you just can't do it anymore. She came up with a strategy to leave.  Having just purchased her dream home on her salary, she had to take a leap of faith to start her own full time practice.  The pandemic and working from home came at the right time. She was able to leverage that commute time and take on more private clients. We talked about how sacred it is to take care of ourselves and honor our own soul knowing. How our cultural programming teaches us to be good girls and do what is expected of us and "behave" but you know what? F the good girl! We need to save ourselves! We need to learn to choose what is right for us and slot into our soul missions here to do the work we are here to do. It takes courage and faith, but once you take the leap, everything starts to align. When we align with our truth, the Universe supports us with clients and opportunities. She recently launched her own podcast "Las Beauty's" which can be found on Spotify, Apple, Google and more.  You can learn more about Lili here: https://www.lasbeautys.com To learn more about me, the host of this podcast, visit: https://www.alinealifecoaching.com

Intuitive Artist Maggie Goleniak Helping People Heal Through Art
Intuitive Artist Maggie Goleniak Helping People Heal Through Art
Maggie Goleniak was born and raised in Poland. She has always been an artist and received her degree in Fine Art from University of Silesia in Poland. She moved to UK after graduation. After her Energy Healing Certifications her connection to the higher realms began opening up. This was the beginning of her intuitive painting.   It was difficult to paint intuitively after the structure of Art School. She encourages us all to do what we love. The energies and alignment of the New Earth doesn't support being stuck or doing things that do not align. Her paintings help and support people who buy her paintings because they speak to them. There's a feeling there, which is light encoded frequency in the paintings that people feel.  The more intuitive painting began just before 2018. We naturally live from the heart. Creativity broadens connection to ourselves. With the Pandemic, she quit her job and felt so free to pursue her love of painting. Breaking down  infrastructures during this pandemic is really creating something new. The pandemic allowed us all to connect more with ourselves. Earning and being in the hustle and striving to be on the top is no longer supported. You lose yourself in that.  Maggie teaches Intuitive art which starts with guided meditation. It's a healing session. The frequency of colors heals you. These are holistic healing sessions connecting to your inner self. She holds energy for the individuals.  It's important to clear unworthiness, things from past lives, and allow our soul to choose the path forward. She helps you go deep, recognize the programming.  People don't want to look at that.  Your higher self will push you towards your work, you are ready. It's about losing your identification with everything external.  We naturally live from the heart which is connected to the Universe and Galaxy.  We are light beings. We are upgrading our DNA coding and shifting perspectives. Our body is just the vessel for the soul.   We are creators! Spend time every day connecting to yourself, drink your tea or coffee, take a walk.  We create by holding ourselves in this now moment. It impacts how we perceive our identity with things.  We are not defined by these things. We are always whole and complete.  Go back to the breath, come back to presence.  Maggie is a guide to discover beauty and creativity within. Her sessions begin with meditation to help people connect to themselves.  Art is healing, the colors, the structure and how you paint supports you.

Toddler Mom Krystal Martinez Talks Conscious Parenting and Parenting Your Way!
Toddler Mom Krystal Martinez Talks Conscious Parenting and Parenting Your Way!
This rich parenting conversation talks about the value of learning to respond instead of react to your kids, the very real feelings of failing as a mom, and taking time for yourself without guilt.  We aren't taught how to hold space for ourselves or how to feel our feelings instead of suppressing feelings. It's OK for parents to ask for help.  The story as moms that "I'm not good enough" is pervasive. Learn to trust your instincts with your kids.  Her son had a tongue tie and if she hadn't followed her instincts and had corrective surgery it could have resulted in speech issues as he got older. She learned so much on her parenting journey including how to let go and the need to be right.  Krystal was a vegan and was so convinced her way was the way, but experience has taught her that it's OK to change your mind, to follow your inner guidance even if it is leading you to change your beliefs like eating a hamburger because her body craved meat protein and allowing her son and not adhering to the strict beliefs she once held.  Adaptability and flexibility allows moms not to be so hard on themselves.    Krystal is a creative writer and you can follow her blog here: https://www.TheUMom.com which stands for The Unconventional Mom. You can also follow her on Instagram @The_U_Mom and while she talks a lot about parenting it all comes back to you as a Mom to get curious and ask yourself why you are feeling coming up for you as a parent.  These could be feelings of not being good enough, failure, stress, fatigue.  Whatever it is, feel your feelings and release the judgment.  Let go of the negative self talk, and nurture yourself.  Wendy Hutchinson the show host is an Ascension Coach and owner of Alinea Life Coaching.  Sign up for her newsletter or read her blog here:  Https://www.alinealifecoaching.com Here latest book "Finding the Path of Me" is available on Amazon, and other platforms here:  https://books2read.com/finding-the-pa...

Healing the Mind Body and Soul with Dr. Stella Aubert
Healing the Mind Body and Soul with Dr. Stella Aubert
Dr. Stella Aubert gets real and vulnerable speaking about a really difficult childhood.  It resulted in her developing an eating disorder followed by depression and her desire to heal holistically rather than through traditional western medicine.  As a baby she developed an ear infection and after one day on antibiotics she went gray and wasn't herself so her mom took her to a chiropractor who within 24 hours of being treated healed her.    This experience and monthly visits thereafter for health and wellness introduced her to the concept of holistic healing. Unfortunately, her emotions around her family dynamics and childhood went unchecked and she was diagnosed in her 20's with leukemia and given 6-8 months to live.  She was not in contact with any family members at the time, and was determined to heal herself. She had an inner knowing that her illness was the physical manifestation of unhealed emotional trauma.  She quit her job, slept like 16 hours a day, ate smoothies, and took care of herself. After she healed she realized she needed to call her mom and invited her to come spend some time with her and they ended up driving across country back home to Charleston, S.C. and had a lot of conversation and healing between them. After regrouping and working at a hotel in Charleston for awhile, she decided to pursue a career in holistic medicine.    She became a Chiropractor and worked in Portland, Oregon with the homeless on skid row.  She found that when she spent time with her clients and allowed them a safe space to tell their story, healing was happening. This is when she fully understood that healing is more than just medical, it's about healing the mind body and soul. Her work today is focused on helping people heal from all kinds of illness by working one on one with them.  You can learn more about her work at https://www.draubert.comand visit her FB page: https://www.facebook.com/Dr.StellaMic...or Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dr._stella....

What to Expect When You Live Abroad
What to Expect When You Live Abroad
Goal Coach Melissa McCloud just published a book called Life Abroad detailing beautiful experiences and challenges from living abroad with a young family.  She expected change and growth but she got more than she bargained for with terrorist bombings in Sri Lanka blocks from home, a Pandemic lockdown and enforced martial law for 3 months, where she couldn't leave her building - not even to get food!  Her goal was to have her children experience real life, face adversity, grow from living in a different culture.  She didn't want their frame of reference to only be privileged white kids living in an affluent neighborhood.  She taught them how to face adversity and overcome it. Cultural immersion training did not teach her how to deal with pandemic lockdown, martial law, and terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka.  She did not know you should have 1 month's supply of food at all times and how living in a caste system would create more empathy and connection for humanity.  We are all the same as humans, this belief was reinforced throughout her entire expat experience.    Melissa has had a successful career working from home and juggling kids while finding time to work out, navigate parenting challenges during the pandemic, while learning to be adaptable!  Her career as a goal coach has aligned perfectly with her desire to be in service to other women looking to live their best lives.  She went through a year long program called Lightyear Leadership while being on lockdown during the pandemic in addition to other coaching certification programs.    Sri Lanka's education system is based on a British Curriculum and system.  Kindergarten is called year 1 and it's rigorous.  Coming from the U.S. with a more casual approach to school finding the right school for the kids was challenging.  Moving to London, at least she had more options in terms of educating her children.  London required more adaptability as she learned that she was making all kinds of faux pas culturally being naturally outgoing.  They are very private people and don't share their names, which she discovered only after introducing herself to neighbors who were somewhat taken aback by her open friendly manner and personality.  Luckily she is adaptable and has settled into the English way of life.   The one thing that has helped her cope with all the stress the past few years have created has been her commitment to fitness and creating space for herself.  She focused on getting 10,000 steps a day by walking around her complex in Sri Lanka.  She woke up to take the Lightyear Leadership classes at 3:30 a.m. finding precious "me" time before her kids woke up.  The classes were based in the U.S. while she was in Sri Lanka, so the time difference required quite a commitment on her part.    Since moving to London, Melissa published a book called "Life Abroad" to document all those memories for her children.  It's available on Amazon.  She also published "What the Tuk" after the Sri Lankan bombings to give back proceeds to the community.  You can learn more about Melissa on her website:  https://www.melissamccloud.co and join her on FB, Instagram Stories.

Relationship Expert and Coach Allana Pratt Talk About Overcoming Childhood Issues and Transmuting Pain into Healing
Relationship Expert and Coach Allana Pratt Talk About Overcoming Childhood Issues and Transmuting Pain into Healing
Relationship and Intimacy Expert Allana Pratt talked about her childhood with an abusive father and how his violence and addiction created this feeling of vulnerability and fear in her at an early age.  She had to be hyper vigilant and on point to avoid the wrath which created a need to be perfect and accepted by people in her life.  This began her life long journey of seeking approval and the relationships that mirrored to her the lesson of healing and knowing her own self worth. At a young age she dropped out of college and hitched ride on a Semi her uncle was driving down to L.A. with the dream of being a dancer.  Without a green card her only option was to accept a dancing opportunity in the Four Seasons Japan.  It was through dancing topless and sharing her feelings with her fellow French dancers of feeling a bit dirty and ashamed, they taught her that her body is a temple to be loved.  She embraced the goddess within learning to transmute that gross energy coming from the men into respect and bowing to her as she performed. She then met and married a multimillionaire and being young she found herself deferring to his knowledge, wealth and success and diminishing herself and self esteem.  She was enticed by the 5 star vacations and luxury lifestyle they had in N.Y. to stay, but ultimately had to choose herself and divorced him.   Shortly thereafter she met husband number two and the father of her son Gabriel.  She was vulnerable at the time because her mom was dying of cancer.  She had a spiritual awareness as she looked at her mom's lifeless body that she was moving through pain towards love, then 9 months later had the reverse experience with the birth of her son, experiencing pure love that switched to fear and pain wondering how she would care for this precious baby.  Her marriage fell apart shortly after turning into a 13 year custody battle where her reputation was tarnished and cost her $250,000 and losing her home.  Her ex fought dirty during the custody battle and at the end of 13 years her son made a huge show of wanting to live with his Dad.  The door was open so his father could witness the whole thing.  This left her absolutely gutted as she crumpled on the floor.   She has since done energy work and her own healing process to fully let go of her son Gabe who she hasn't had contact with in 2 years. There has been a tremendous growth in her surrender.  Since then her business has thrived as a Relationship Coach, published author of 6 books, guest appearances on major networks including coaching Leeza Gibbons on Dancing with the Stars. She is currently creating a relationship app called Heart Mates where you become the ONE to attract the ONE and made a bold decision to go to India for a few months to make sure the app is done right!

Maria Krause Overcoming Sexual Assault, Shame and Learning to Unchain Her Inner Power!
Maria Krause Overcoming Sexual Assault, Shame and Learning to Unchain Her Inner Power!
Maria Krause CEO of Unchain Your Inner Strength empowers women to come back to their authentic selves. As a spiritual mindset and alignment mentor, and International Best-Selling Author she helps women understand themselves through their stories and peel off the layers that no longer serve them. Her company includes a Podcast, Online Magazine Publishing company and now an online clothing store! Trigger warning, we discuss a sexual assault that happened to her many years ago. If you have had some trauma around this, please check in with yourself to see if it feels appropriate for you to listen to our conversation. After she was sexually assaulted Maria lost herself in drugs and alcohol. She was engaging in self-destructive behaviors and avoiding the healing necessary from being aggressively sexually assaulted. She wanted to be loved and sought out and attracted toxic relationships because she felt she could only be loved through sex. Society often blames the women when they are assaulted, in this case, someone drugged her drink when she was out at a club in NYC. At the age of 36 she met a man, her intuition told her to run, but her need to be loved and seen trumped her intuition. Turns out he was a narcissist and totally controlling. She lost herself and developed physical illness like IBS and skin issues on her hands in addition to depression. Her body was in constant pain and mentally she went through a very dark time. A dark night of the soul. Slowly she started pulling back from this guy. She was finishing college and changed jobs. She didn't want the part lifestyle anymore or the relationship. She couldn't take it anymore and when he got physically violent, she left Ireland to move home to Argentina. She was so lonely but needed the time to heal. The narcissist will never change. They have low self-esteem and will not allow you to feel good about yourself because they feel bad about themselves. They will pull you down. Therapy for the narcissist makes them better liars, they do not heal. She completely lost herself, no personality, only depended on him to define and see her. When she arrived home, she had a lot of anger, sadness and was numb. she stopped drinking and drugs; she couldn't be there anymore. She started back to yoga, went for walks. She realized she wanted to support women with their own empowerment, to release shame and guilt. You can connect with her here: https://Mariackrause.com She is now 1 year sober after 4 attempts. She lost self-doubt and views her life from a different perspective. She recognizes as an empath what is hers and gives back what is not. She realized what drinking and drugs were costing her. Letting go of shame and guilt was key. You find your freedom when you find your truth, we are here to be ourselves!

Kelly Marshall - Defining Your Worth and How it Relates to Your Business
Kelly Marshall is a is a Prosperity Advisor for women with conscious service businesses.  She is also a Money Breakthrough Business Coach.  We talked about the  Law of Attraction, Energy Alchemy and how we need to get clear on our value to shift our money mindset.    Our intention around how we live our lives impacts the people around  us.  She had to gain clarity around how to marry her linear accounting business mind with her intuitive life (energy, Reiki, healing, and spirituality).   How could she integrate both into a business? After years of working as an accountant she started a side hustle bookkeeping business.   She knew from her Human Design Chart that the early part of her life was meant to provide a very grounded foundation for her life purpose of helping people with that knowledge.   Her corporate career ended when she went to work for a Health and Wellness Center doing both coaching and accounting.   It was there that she got clarity on the kind of clients she wanted to attract. Conscious Entrepreneurs felt aligned to her.  She realized after working at the Wellness Center that alignment and authenticity were important to her.  She formed her LLC and got more intentional about attracting clients.  We talked about how we rationalize what's not aligned and stay in situations not meant to support us.  How fear programs keep us from trusting ourselves, blocks opportunities and creates a negative narrative.  We manifest truth both positive and negative.  Check in on why you are doing what you are doing.  What is your why?  Get intentional about who you are and why you are here.    Coaching is helpful but look within.  Good coaches ask questions that lead you to your own answers.  Trust the parachute will open.   Kelly loves helping you discover who you are becoming to grow your business.  Becoming an entrepreneur creates a lot of personal growth.  There's often a war between your heart and head.  Understanding energy alchemy and knowing your value allows you to price accordingly.   She offers the suggestion to write down 30 ways you are impacting your clients to see your value.    CLAIM YOUR GREATNESS! #entrepreneurs #knowyourworth #whatisyourwhy #WendyHutchinson

The Radical Awakening of Krystal Martinez
The Radical Awakening of Krystal Martinez
Krystal Martinez often felt alone in her childhood.  At the age of 8 she realized she was on her own. Her Mom told her she knew she was capable and she didn't have to worry about her, which translated into basically no parenting.  She was emotionally abandoned as a child but resourceful and intelligent and figured things out.   She lived in survival mode, living an unconscious life of black out drinking.   She was really smart and high functioning and graduated from college and went on to get her Masters degree.  She was recently laid off from her job in Fundraising in higher education.  While she was studying abroad her drinking came to an abrupt halt after blacking out on a sidewalk in Spain.   She was never interested in anything spiritual as a child but she did rely on her own instincts and trust herself to survive and thrive.  In her early 20's Krystal tried a Reiki session.  Nothing much happened but she decided to go back for a second one.  Her mind  and consciousness was blown wide open.    She felt like a vortex opened and she was having like a psychedelic trip only she wasn't on drugs.  She was seeing movies in her third eye, she saw things coming at her and experiencing really wild sensory things.   She called the practitioner who explained it was the energy.  It was like a psychic light switch turned on.  From that point on she was fully psychic.  She started taking classes from her reiki instructor, but then moved onto to giving readings, doing her own free form energy work, pulling from lifetimes of memories as a healer.  She began using crystals.  All of it was just natural and organic.  She even began reading sand.    Throughout this time she was experiencing very physical loss.  Her Dad passed away at the age of 5, her Uncle who was the only father figure she had died 10 years later, then her mom had a very intense passing.  She adopted her 6 year old brother who came to live with her and she went through a deep depression.   At that time she was drinking again and her husband told her she was just checked out.   By this time she found a Marconics Energy Practitioner who sat down with her for a consult.   She wanted a recalibration right away.     During her Marconic Recalibration she had a lot of visions one of which was a baby floating above her that said "Hi Mommy!"  4 days later it was confirmed she was pregnant even though a prior test showed negative.   This expanded her consciousness even more and gave her more clarity around the work she wanted to do which was related to Ascension and keeping your vibe high!  This entire time she was shedding and releasing old programming and healing her inner wounds.    She has since started her business Grace Solutions, LLC which is a property preservation company.  She has also been creating amazing poetry which she will be publishing in the near future. #awakening   #marconics #Spiritual Awakening #ascension #emotional abandonment #Loss #Alone #psychic #Wendy Hutchinson #Alinea Life Coaching

Victor Galindo Take Two - The Shift and Pivot Into Alignment with Living His Best Life
Victor Galindo Take Two - The Shift and Pivot Into Alignment with Living His Best Life
I first interviewed Victor in 2019.  He had recently been released from serving time and was happy to get out!  He was in the flow and had spent the last year inside going through a massive spiritual awakening.  He was reading spiritual books and texts and absorbing information as well as getting weekly long distance Marconic energy sessions from his sister Veronica for a year.   Shortly thereafter he decided to get a Marconic Recalibration which is an energy protocol that reconnects you to your higher self.  Marconics is an ascension energy modality that helps clear karma and density and remaps your lightbody.  It pulls in multidimensional energy and it remaps your DNA.   It is a life changing experience. He was recalibrated while taking his Level 1 Marconics class to become an energy practitioner when he got out of prison.   Victor has always been an empath and energy intuitive.  From an early age his Aunt taught him how to feel energy and tune into himself.  He knew he was consciously lowering his energy frequency to run with a tough crowd in his teens.  It was during this time he started using drugs and drinking and numbing the pain of losing both his favorite aunt and grandmother in the same year.    A back injury sidelined his sports outlet so he took a turn which landed him in and out of jail for years.    Immediately after Victor's Marconics class he began the 5 hour drive home from Austin to Odessa, Texas.  Information started pouring in.  All kinds of awareness around who he is at his core and the truth around what he had been doing all these years and why.   It was overwhelming to receiving the downloads and he was just shedding all kinds of emotional stuff.  By the time he got home he was crying and when he looked in the mirror he saw his reflection and heard the truth around why he always picked women who needed to be rescued, it was because he couldn't save his grandmother and aunt from dying when he was 16.  He called his sister to ask if this was normal!  Everyone's process of shedding and releasing density and karma is unique after the recalibration, but his team was fast tracking him and bringing him online fast.   It was almost too much to handle emotionally.   He took a detour back into the only coping mechanisms he knew which were drugs and alcohol, but this time it was different.  He knew he didn't want this life anymore and he made a decision to choose a better life, to choose him!  He stopped everything and from that moment, it was like slicing through butter, life began to just flow and align.  He reconnected with himself at the Godhead, with Source and enrolled in his program at the cosmetology school to get certified in Hair.  During his time in jail he was working as a master barber cutting hair for inmates and officers and their families so he already knew what he wanted to do, he just had to get the certification.  He has since been thriving in his classes and is booked out weeks in advance.  Victor found his passion and purpose which is to just be love and spread love in the world and he is doing that by lending an ear to everyone who sits in his chair and everyone he encounters.   He has already impacted the many people he encountered while in jail from his cell mates to the many other people around him while he served time.  He noticed his vibration was changing and rising as he received weekly energy sessions from his sister Veronica and other inmates also commented on how things changed every time he was transferred to different locations to finish his sentence.  He went to the worst places where they held guys on death row, and also where they executed them.  His journey has been amazing and now he is ready to give back to the world.

Leah Landry is a Marconics Energy Master Teacher who self healed her battle with Lyme Disease, Hashimotos, and addiction.   When she found Marconics Energy she was ready to surrender and let go of all of it.  During her Recalibration session she saw herself turning these things over and a knowing she was changing her life.  She still questioned whether it worked, but one day it dawned on her about 3 months later that she was healed.  She called her doctor and went in for a Lyme test and sure enough it was gone, like a miraculous healing.  Her doctor couldn't believe it.  Since then she has become a Marconics Master Teacher now helping others with their own spiritual ascension process.    Her work was built on trust and faith in herself through her parenting journey with both of her children and realizing she had healing abilities she couldn't explain.   She has gently guided many of her clients through her coaching, hypnotherapy and meditation to help them raise their vibrations high enough to receive the Marconics protocols.  The energy sheds and releases a lot of Karmic density so people who struggle with addiction need to raise their vibrations high enough to receive it.   Leah is truly a gift to the world offering her light and service to others while walking her own ascension path.  To learn more about her work visit her website at https://www.LeahLandry.rocks To learn more about my work visit my website: https://www.alinealifecoaching.com #Marconics #LeahLandry #ascension #5D #QuantumRecalibration #WendyHutchinson

Victor Galindo's Journey of Falling and Rising and Standing in the Gap Between Science and God
Victor Galindo's Journey of Falling and Rising and Standing in the Gap Between Science and God
In September 2019 I interviewed Victor Galindo. Our conversation was SO GOOD I wanted to post it here as a podcast.  He had an amazing childhood.  His Aunt from the age of 5 was teaching how to use energy, feel energy, and tune in.  She had a huge influence on him.  He never got in trouble, he was a great student and athlete, but when he turned 16 everything seemed to be stripped away.  He had a sports injury that kept him out of sports, his beloved grandmother died, then his favorite aunt who had taught him the ways of energy and spirit passed also.  On top of all that he went through a bad breakup with a girlfriend.   He started to party and find comfort in a different crowd.    He knew he was lowering his vibration to hang out with these guys and he chose it and witnessed a lot of intense things.   He was in and out of prison, had a son which his parents helped raise while he was incarcerated.   Going into prison he had to lower his vibration even more to survive.  It was a way of life as he navigated going in and out.   He started turning his life around getting into a sound production major in college with funding and he was completely loving his life.  He had an internship and a great attitude and he was removed from the old crowd.  Unfortunately an old charge came back around to bite him and he had to go back in and do time.   This entire time his sister Veronica who is a lightworker was talking to him sharing her spiritual knowledge, but he wasn't receptive.   At some point he went to a year long Christian based program to get clean.  There he began meditating and having visions and connecting to what he calls the UG (Ultimate God).  Through his reconnection to himself, he started to transform.  He also had this wild experience where he was at a family party totally sober and this Shaman talked to him and then touched his third eye and he had a totally radical experience.  It was like mind bending.  During one of his last stints in prison he decided it was time to change his ways.  He reached out to his sister Veronica and asked her to send him books and he started reading and studying spirituality.   He also started receiving distance Marconics energy sessions from his sister every Thursday night at 11:00 p.m.  Things started shifting.   Anyway, his story is fascinating.  TUNE IN and SHARE!

Shanti's Incredible Journey of Awakening
Shanti's Incredible Journey of Awakening
Shanti immigrated to the U.S. from Azerbaijan.  She is fluent in 4 languages, a Massage Therapist, into essential oils, an Ordained Minister, Ascension Guide, Artist, and so much more.   Her spiritual awakening began with one of her sons who had Asthma.  She was seeking healing for him and found a Reiki practitioner hoping that energy work may help him.  She was also receiving some intuitive messages but didn't know where they were coming from.   Through synchronicities of messages and events happening in her life, she began to put 2 and 2 together and realized something/someone was communicating with her and giving her guidance.   With no frame of reference, she kept asking is this a message from me?  Where is this information coming from?  For a year she was flooded with messages coming in and intuitive guidance until she shut it off.  It was too much.   She was very into essential oils and thought about how she could combine them with a healing modality and one day it came to her to become a massage therapist.  She could combine two things she was passionate about and thus began her massage therapy career.   After massage school she began to open up more and receive more intuitive guidance.  She then found Marconics Energy work (learn more at www.marconics.com) and became a Marconics Energy Practitioner.  Prior to signing up for her training she received a message from the Pleidians.  She had to go to google to figure out who they were and who she was communicating with.    As her connection to herself strengthened, she began communicating with Source energy.  She would go down to the beach in winter and data stream messages and type on her phone.  This place of pure connection to source energy (GOD) led her to write/publish 2 books.  Purchase her book,"I AM Messages to Humanity" on Amazon.   Sit back, relax and enjoy this great conversation!

Josh Brotherton - Overcoming Fear and The Unfolding of His Spiritual Awakening
Josh Brotherton - Overcoming Fear and The Unfolding of His Spiritual Awakening
Josh Brotherton was working as an engineer when he got a nudge to check out energy healing.  He had no frame of reference for it, nor did he have a sense of what was involved.  His journey was gentle at first starting with reading some spiritual books, authors like Eckhart Tolle, taking what resonated and filling his spiritual bank.   He then decided to go on vacation - he kind of blanked out at the computer and when he came to he saw he booked flights to Sedona, AZ.   After some synchronistic events on vacation he was being kind of pushed to follow more crumbs.  He had a reading where he was told he was a healer in Sedona.   Once he got home he did some research on a new healing modality and found Marconics.   He went to an Expo and felt overwhelmed by the topics and energy work.   He watched from a far sample Marconic sessions at the Expo and tried to be invisible, but one of the cofounders approached him and invited him to have a session. He actually left the expo because it made him so nervous.   About a year went by and he saw an article that they had another Expo so he went to the expo and it was a smaller venue, he was at the Marconics talk, psyched himself up to have a sample session and then he ran into the same co-founder.    He was so fearful he left again!  Now about a year later 2015 he goes to California for a business trip he detours on his way home to Sedona for a blood moon.  He says to the Universe no matter what he won't say no this time!    The whole trip was dramatic.  He was pulled forward by his guides to go to a hike.   Someone up there taps him on the shoulder, a Reiki Master gives him a heart shaped rock.  Then he hears an Indian flute and he gets closer and listens to the music.  Hears a command like he needs to go talk to the same guy that tapped him on his shoulder.  He explains what Reiki is and invites Josh to a Reiki share.  He tells Josh he's a healer and he should come.  So Josh goes to the share and his hands turn on and he feels an energy field of the person on the table and she starts to move. It was his first experience feeling his energy.   He got another reading with the same lady.  He asks her about Marconics.  She sees his guides going crazy and tells Josh what she sees and says take it for what it's worth.   The guides are telling her there's an EXPO she tells him he needs to get a table at the expo.  Long story short, Josh overcame his fear, he took a Marconics class and ended up volunteering at the Expo at their booth.  He ended up leading their teaching team and now continues to work on his higher ascension.    If you are afraid of your own personal awakening and resisting the journey, this show is a must for you.

Master Marconics Teacher Robin Landau Shares Her Wisdom on Ascension and Marconic Energy
Master Marconics Teacher Robin Landau Shares Her Wisdom on Ascension and Marconic Energy
Robin Landau is a Licensed Massage Therapist, a Feng Shui Designer, Master Marconic Energy Teacher, and Energy Alchemist.  Her work includes a recent park design for a 911 hero Detective Luis Alvarez in which she infused her Feng Shui knowledge and energy into the project.  Her over 30 year career as a healer has gifted her wisdom that she shares around Human Ascension, Energy healing, and the path to your higher self. With Marconic Energy you're pulling from the full specturm of higher dimensional energy.  The recalibration offers the individual an opportunity to reconnect with their higher self alignment and release 51% of their karma.  Through the Chakra uncapping process, large amounts of karma are removed offering an opportunity for people to gain more clarity, and rise higher vibrationally.   For those who resonate with Marconic energy, you may want to take a class to further your ascension journey. Many people are finding they are pushing up against a ceiling whether it's with a particular energy modality that has served them well all this time, or even their spiritual belief system.   We are collectively shifting and choosing our ascension path at this time.   Even those who have been very deep into their religious beliefs are feeling there might be something more.  Honor your feelings and get curious, look at information that challenges your beliefs and encourages you to reconnect to your own divine guidance and knowing.  You have all the answers. Check out our interview here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSNwmiwshAM Learn more about Robin's work here: https://www.robinjoylandau.com or Marconics here: https://www.marconics.com To learn more about my work as an intuitive life coach or join my monthly newsletter, find the links here:  https://www.alinealifecoaching.com

Artist Sandra Walkin Shares her Journey from Planting a Forest to Creating Unique Metal Inlayed Wood Furniture
I had the pleasure of visiting Sandra Walkin's arboretum in 2017.  It was a beautiful property with a forest and different rooms created throughout.   Sandra took her passion for trees and married it with her knowledge of specialty finishes.  Through a lot of YouTube and trial and error she became a talented alchemist inlaying metals in wood to create unique one of a kind furniture pieces. In 1991 Sandra and her husband purchased an 11 acre piece of land and worked with a landscape architect to design a forest of trees including towering pine, elm, hickory, pecan and other species.  She nurtured her forest and believed in the vision long before anyone else could see it.   Hurricane Rita came through and one of the casualties was a piece of wood riddled with holes, this was when she got the idea to take her skills with different finishes and figure out how to inlay metal to reinforce the wood.  From there, her artistry was born. Join us for a beautiful conversation about trees, art, and finding your passion and following it.  You never know where life will lead you, but following the drops of intuition and knowing takes you right where you need to be.

Past Lives and Hypnotherapy with Special Guest Irina Furin
Past Lives and Hypnotherapy with Special Guest Irina Furin
Irina Furin is a friend of mine who helps people through hypnotherapy and meditation heal.  Her work began with her own unexpected past life experience in a hypnotherapy session. She had everything in life and was so unhappy so she scheduled a hypnosis session.  It was an attempt to find answers because nothing else was working.  During her session she was immediately in a WWII experience as a child.  She could feel the ground shaking, the tanks overhead as she hid in the basement of her home and bombs being dropped.   She could smell and feel the dust and saw herself running down a street in Europe.  The pieces of the puzzle came together as she remembered vivid dreams and feelings of deep despair as a small child. She had to learn more and got certified in hypnotherapy not only to heal herself but to help others as well.  Join us for a beautiful conversation.  You can contact Irina for more information or to schedule your own session here: https://www.IrinaFurin.com Please subscribe, like and share the love.  I invite you to sign up for my monthly newsletter here:  https://www.alinealifecoaching.com

Soleana Stables Therapeutic Riding Program - Literally Created From a Dream
Soleana Stables Therapeutic Riding Program - Literally Created From a Dream
This week I interviewed the lovely Sasha Camacho and her husband Andy who founded Soleana Stables.  It is a riding program for children and adults with disabilities just outside of Houston, Texas.  Their daughter Solana was born with Down Syndrome and after discovering her love of riding Andy literally had a dream.  For three nights in a row he dreamed the same dream that kept getting more and more detailed and it was the birth of Soleana Stables riding program. It took a little convincing to get Sasha on board, but she agreed it was a good idea and they started to volunteer at other riding programs and learn as much as they could.  For this city girl, boots and horses were a bit out of her wheelhouse.   Fast forward to today where they have about 30 riders, countless volunteers and a commitment to creating a family community for those with special needs.  They are always looking for volunteers and you don't have to have horse experience, just a willingness to learn and an open heart.  Training is provided. To learn more about their program go to:  www.soleanastables.org and please like and share the love so we can reach more people who may know someone with special needs children or adults in their lives.  You can view the Video version of this podcast on my YouTube Channel here:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXyzjTCd1Oc For some monthly inspiration dropped into your inbox, go to my website and sign up for my newsletter: www.alinealifecoaching.com

Rhianna Mays Heard the Words "RUN JUMP TRUST"
This interview was from 2018 with Rhianna Mays.  Although it was a couple years ago, the message seemed so relevant to our current times.  Working a corporate job, Rhianna kept hearing the words Run, Jump, Trust.  It was an inner knowing that she needed to leave her corporate job.  As a single mom of 2 young twins (4 yrs. old at the time), she kept ignoring the call.  She was literally white knuckling it every day in her job to stay glued to her chair at her desk and not bolt out of there.  The message became more persistent, until she couldn't ignore it any more.  She asked for a sign and got one in a powerful way.   She is an inutuitive, healer and so much more.  You can learn more about her work here:  https://rhiannamays.com/ As we wind down 2020, which was such an unexpected year for us all, I felt this message was still so timely.   We are all being asked to run, jump and trust in our lives and I hope listening to this interview will inspire you to do so!!!  Please feel free to share this podcast with anyone you think might benefit from the message.

From the Darkness to the Light
From the Darkness to the Light
Wayne Zespy felt like a zebra in a pack of horses.  His step dad was very abusive and from a young age he felt like he was never good enough.   He was never good enough, while he younger brother Russ could do no wrong.   The message from his mother was "you just need to learn how to behave."  His religion reinforced the message that he was a bad person responsible for all the suffering in the family.    Drugs made him feel "right" again, like he belonged.  They made him feel normal.  They saved his life until they stopped working for him.   Wayne left home at the age of 17 to join the Army.  He dropped LSD during basic training and took amphetamines during boot camp.  The upside, he was second in his battalion!   Once he took so much LSD (enough for 16 people to get very high) he saw the beginning of creation, Armageddon, and the devil and his demons fighting God and the angels for his soul.    He was strapped to a gurney and met with a straight jacket at the hospital.  From the age of 15-30 his drug of choice was "more".   If a little was good, more was better.    The worst drug he used that caused the most heartache was alcohol.   He overdosed 9 times.   He was in a coma for 10 days from an attempt at suicide.   Wayne was extremely violent and got into many fights.  He was homeless.     After a stint in jail he was sent to a 2x4 program.   Two weeks in treatment and 4 weeks of outpatient.   He has been clean ever since.  He went to so many AA meetings and if not at AA he was with a sponsor having coffee working the 12 steps.  6 months into his sobriety he lost his brother and then 2 months later his mother.  He was completely alone.   At his lowest he looked in the mirror, tears streaming down his face and saw his best friend looking back at him.  He told him he loved him and would never desert him.  He woke up the next morning and said what would I do for my best friend?  From that moment on, he poured love into himself and began to heal.    Today he has a thriving business as a life coach, hiking guide, and also counsels people helping them to find their spiritual path and return to their natural state.  He teaches meditation and facilitates ceremonies, retreats, and workshops on recovery and spirituality.   You can reach him by email: Wizhiker12@aol.com or phone 520-825-6613.

During the pandemic he has just about reached his goal and gave back to his community at the same time.  With his stimulus check he created 350 gift packs for seniors graduating in June 2020.   He also plans 4 more events to raise money for the community including a pancake breakfast for the homeless, a scholarship fund to help college students avoid the student loan debt, and more.   Find him here: www.theraceto50K.com if you want to donate or learn more, or follow his journey on Instagram and Facebook: Kamaka Dias 8 Please consider supporting my podcast by sharing it with others!  Thank you for being with me on the ride.
