Freedom From Telling Your Story

How to set yourself free from the past: Tell Your Story!

image_1When you are able to tell your story, you free yourself from the bondage of the past. Revealing is healing. It is a process of cleansing the soul of any old and unnecessary debris from the past. Sadly, most of you do just the opposite. You spend precious time supposedly living in secret, burning a hole in your heart as well as your stomach.

 

This season on Reclaim Your Life Event, you have the opportunity to listen to 18 women, including myself share our stories. We talked openly and honestly about intimate and very painful experiences. Some of my guests revealed details about rape, parental murder-suicide, death of a loved one and various addictions and illnesses. There was a common thread in each one of these amazing stories. Each women was empowered and inspired the by the pain she had experienced. Today they are serving humanity in a way to help eliminate pain and suffering.

I hope that you as the listener learned something from the raw honesty of each guest. I know I did. When you live by the truth, you can outshine any experience from the past.

Another beautiful example of pure honesty is the amazing movie the Anonymous People which shares the stories of real people (some of them are famous) and their struggle with addiction. This movie can now be purchased on DVD or downloaded from Vimeo. To be in recovery is no longer a demeaning association. I am personally so grateful for my 25 years of recovery. This is what inspires me to do the work I love with women.

April is National Alcohol Awareness month. Who do you know today that maybe over indulging on a regular basis? Becoming aware of alcohol abuse can dramatically prevent the tragedies which occur as a direct result of it. Who can you lend a supporting hand to? Encourage them to be honest with you so they can begin to recover and heal. The first conversation is always the toughest.

There is nothing more powerful than good old fashioned honesty to overcome the hurdles in your journey.

I would love to hear from you how telling the truth has helped

Live Faithfully,

Mal

Big Time Gratitude for my Soulful Ladies

Big Time Gratitude for my Soulful Ladies Last week I went to an educational conference in Connecticut. I was surrounded by a roomful of inspired souls who love doing work similar to the work I love doing with women. The energy in the room was indescribable. It was one of those defining moments in life when you know you’re on the right path. No way would you feel this good if you weren’t.

This was a group of highly successful people who are inspired by doing what they love. Many would do it even if they weren’t paid for it. Does that scream a brilliant message of joy and life’s purpose? Many of the women had been inspired by a life crisis, painful loss or an awakening to their own personal divine consciousness.

I am not talking woo-woo here, I mean people living their true purpose. Guess what? It doesn’t get any more empowering than that. Sadly, many people are clueless and go to work hating what they are doing and never discover what they could be great at. Fear of the unknown paralyzes them from stepping out of a lifeless but familiar routine.

You have to take chances to grow, to create, to make changes. Anything really good that helps you transform your life requires an element of risk. Being receptive to what the universe has in store for you and letting go of your will requires courage.   The fear of not being good enough can hold you back. I know it did for me for many years before I discovered my true potential and purpose. I wrote a book, I stepped up and started doing lots of interviews and appearances. I became inspired to coach women and teach them to find their purpose and power.

Let me introduce you to some of the women standing around me in the photo at the top of this post. Stacey Martino decided, in a moment of gut wrenching pain and sobbing tears, to take a chance and place her trust in making a commitment to her then boyfriend, now husband, Paul. They have traveled the globe studying (becoming experts) and teaching Love and Passion Success.  My mentor, Linda Joy who went from being a single welfare mom to publisher of ASPIRE magazine. Then there is the feisty Italian Sugar Free Goddess, Lisa Rosati who built an entire new successful business after the emotional lows of an abusive marriage. Oh, and she has a new hottie for a husband. Kim Turcotte left the grind of corporate data analysis to becoming an online business manager extraordinaire with people lining up for her services. They are all powerful examples of overcoming fear and following their hearts.

I am so grateful for being able to connect with these beautiful souls, to call them my friends and to follow them on a path of passion and purpose. My vision is to live in a world where all women feel appreciated, experience deep love, honor their desires and discover their purpose.

The mantra that I would like to share with you is:

“Be authentic, live joyfully and serve others”

Your life will end up being greater and more fulfilling than you ever imagined.

Live Faithfully,

Mal

Kick the “But” Word to the Curb and Reclaim Your Life!

Author Mal Duane discusses how 'but' holds us back. She invites you attend 'Reclaim Your Life' and hear interviews with women for whom 'but' was never an option.

How many times in your life have you declared you wanted to be or do something and then followed it up with the “but” word. “But” is a huge self-manifested block that keeps you from being and doing all that you are meant to. “I want to lose weight but… “ “I want to stop drinking but…” “I want to have a relationship but…” “I want to be pretty but…” It is so easy to live in a pattern of “I want this but unfortunately that happened”. Well truth be told – that is a major cop out.

There is nothing holding you back unless you allow it.

This week is the opening of the Reclaim Your Life Event where you will hear gripping stories of personal perseverance from my heart-centered guests. They too, have struggled in their own journey and are joining me to share their intimate stories of hope, love and transformation. These amazing visionary entrepreneurs never considered “but” as an option.

Pain became a very powerful motivator for these women to reclaim their lives. In fact, it inspired them to step up, embrace who they are and use that power to serve others.

And, it is possible for you to release the shackles of pain, shame, guilt and self-condemnation that hold you back, and recapture the self- love you yearn for.

You don’t have to do this alone. Some of my greatest breakthroughs in life came when I opened myself to receive the guidance and support from women who have walked the path before me.

So please join me from 12:00 PM EST, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from March 4th through April 10th, and listen as these extraordinary souls share their truth with the intent to inspire and support you in releasing the past, so you may reclaim your life.

Reclaiming Your Life Lessons

Reclaiming Your Life LessonsIs your life spiraling down emotionally? Is your heart filled with fear and keeping you from being the magnificent soul you are meant to be?

Your heart is a magnetic energy center that sends vibrations out to the Universe. So, what you hold in your heart shows up in your life physically. We spend a lot of time talking about our thoughts but forget to dig deeper and see what is in our hearts.

Whatever you hold in your heart, whether it is love or fear, acts as fuel for the thoughts running through your mind. If you have a heart filled with love, then bless you! You are on your way to creating the life you desire. Sadly for most of us, fear outweighs the love, attracting what we don’t want. So how do we tip the scales?

Starting on March 4th and running through April 10th, I will be hosting 17 women in a series of discussions exploring how, at a deep and revealing level, we turned fear around and found love on the other side. Each speaker will bear her heart, the nature of the atrocity that caused her crippling fear. Some of these stories brought tears to my eyes. I struggled with the reality that I might not be able to cope if it were me.

You are going to have access to such luminaries as Rhonda Britten who discusses the murder/suicide of her parents, Crystal Andrus who reveals her sexually abusive youth and Cheryl Hunter who shares the gruesome circumstances of her rape as a young model in Europe. These are stories of unfathomable loss, emotional plunder and physical sabotage.

They are women who took their painful experiences and made them their greatest teachers. The pain they experienced inspired us to step up and discover a soul-centered purpose to help other women. Each of them serves women in their uniquely divine ways through coaching programs, books and online training. You will also receive valuable free gifts from my guests that will help you in your own transformational journey.

To fully understand compassion, I believe you need to experience the pain on a personal level. Every speaker this season on www.ReclaimYourLifeEvent.com has walked in the shoes of personal pain, emotional challenge or transformational growth.

I am inviting you to join all of my guests in this inspiring and heart-felt series. Go to the website and sign up for your free access.

I am passionate about helping women discover how amazingly powerful they can be. When you learn to love yourself, you become an unstoppable force of scintillating love for others to follow. I have spent the past six months working on and producing www.ReclaimYourLifeEvent.com for you. I hope you will be touched and inspired by the honesty, love and courage these women share.

Live Faithfully,

Mal

Who Do YOU Think You Are?

Who Do YOU Think You Are?

Do you think you are superior or do you struggle with low self-esteem? The fact is that we are all born the same; we come from the same divine source – everything in the Universe comes from this source. We have the same energy that holds the stars in the sky and turns the Earth.

Now that is powerful. But what happens to make us feel less than that? What dims the power we are born with?

I have two theories on this. The first is that other people’s opinions or perceptions weaken us. They distort our vision of who we are. We start becoming more like what they think we are and less like what we really are and, as a result, we feel the need to compete and compare. Wake up! Their opinions are self-serving or fear based. So my suggestion to you is, try to understand that someone else’s opinion of you is none of your business. I don’t know who said this originally but I think it is brilliant.

My second theory is a little more personal. Do you apply yourself? Women that apply themselves have more fulfilling, joyful and meaningful lives. If you don’t apply yourself, you will never know your full potential.

How much you get out of life is directly related to how much you put into it. The old statement that somebody is so lucky and gets everything is crap. You better take another look. The women I see that really enjoy life are making it that way.

Life is really simple if you chunk it down. There are four areas where you need to apply yourself in order to live the life you deserve and connect with the divine feminine power you were born with:

  1. Mental/emotional (which includes family and friends)
  2. Physical/health
  3. Financial/career
  4. Spiritual

By maintaining balance and personal application in these four areas, you can create the life you desire. If you are suffering or unhappy, where does the problem lie? Every woman I coach creates a plan for each of these quadrants. If they feel challenged in a certain area, they can apply specific actions to support positive change in that quadrant. You can’t control other people but you can control when and how you choose to apply yourself. So why not go for the GOLD!  Start to envision your life the way you want it. If you don’t expect it, how can it happen?

If you want to get on the fast track for creating the life you dream of, then personal coaching maybe the perfect option for you. To learn more, set up a Discovery Session) in the month of February and get 60 minutes for the price of 30.

Live Faithfully,

Mal
