People love and respect you.
You’re fit and healthy.
Bottom line – you totally have your shit together….
AND you’re quietly thinking, “but I feel….stuck. Is this what I want for the rest of my life? Should I be more grateful? Am I totally crazy for wanting to escape and change everything?”
I’m Rae and I’m an Erickson-trained solution-focused coach who helps you discover your hidden dreams and bring them to life. I hold a safe space for inspired transformation that deeply aligns with your values, and I challenge you to expand your personal awareness and move forward even more powerfully.
I also know exactly what you’re going through….
I’m the first born, the girl, the responsible one, the ‘fix it’ child. I spent my life keeping people happy, keeping out of trouble and making sure everything was done exactly how it was supposed to be done….
Growing up (a relative term…) my motivator was approval.
I got great grades,
was helpful and polite,
went to university,
got into graduate school,
got a great job with great benefits,
and found a wonderful man.
I did life the ‘right’ way and I was successful.
I had my shit together and…..I felt trapped.
I felt guilty for wanting to feel different than I felt, but I didn’t know what to do and I was scared.
Then my Mom died and everything changed.
I looked at what I’d accomplished and realized it was all to make sure I was doing the ‘right’ thing. I thought if I did I’d be safe, people would admire me and think I was successful and I’d be able to manage everything and keep everything under control. I thought this would make me happy.
I finally wondered, “what the hell am I doing?!”
Exactly that, more doing. I was continuously ‘doing’ for all the wrong reasons. Figuring this out and making some life-changing decisions (primarily, quitting my masters degree) was my first taste of freedom.
Don’t get me wrong, I was scared shitless. I was sick to my stomach. The decision seemed to go against everything I’d been taught, and it was the best decision I’d ever made. I don’t regret it.
The secret I learned after facing it head-on was that this kind of fear is a mind trick. A brick wall that looks real and solid, but is actually like the entrance to platform 93/4 – you can step right through it when you know where to aim. You lean into it blindly trusting your intuition and miraculously emerge on the other side with increased awareness and confidence. It helped me see the magic in the situation, and kept reinforcing that listening to that little voice is the only way to know you’re on the right track.
For me losing my Mom was the catalyst that pushed me over the edge. First I just wanted to feel better. So I read, meditated, searched and kept listening. I finally got help from an amazing woman who coached me through many different iterations of ‘not enough’ and helped me change my life. I finally knew I wanted to give everything I had and create something that made my heart sing. I wanted to wake up every day and be the woman I longed to let loose. I felt if I connected to the things way down in me, something extraordinary might just burst into life and wow the pants right off everyone. I felt unstoppable….and still completely clueless about what that ‘something’ would look like.
I now know it is completely within my power to create the life I dream of and it’s within yours too.
After partnering with the fear that was holding me back I connected to my inner guidance system, my intuition, and I learned how to self-reference. I started dreaming and dreaming big!
My dream is to serve by supporting creative, inspired women who have unique gifts to offer the world, and need a little help doing it. I feel by helping you find this seed of inspiration within you, I will be helping to grow the things I feel are important in the world.
It’s these that create the energetic buzz which radiates through me when I’m chock full of gratitude for the tiniest things, overcome by the most minute and yet profound bits of increased awareness. And it’s all this that makes my meandering trail over ridges, rocks, swamping through the bog, feeling like crap, and wondering what the hell I was doing, exactly what needed to happen to get me here. I’m now creating my dream life by helping you create yours.
You’re a divine woman, you’ve got a direct connection to the infinite, and you’ve got a whole bunch of really awesome skills to support you in creating the life of your dreams….and I can help you do it.
I coach successful women like you in creating your dream life. I know that when you are inspired and your offering resonates at the highest level, you change the world.
Thank you so much for visiting and I’m really looking forward to connecting with you.
