“From Burnout to Bliss” 2013 Aurora Guide Feature on My Personal Journey to Wholeness

From Burnout to BlissThis week I’m thrilled to share From Burnout to Bliss, the brand new spotlight article on my personal Journey to Wholeness just published by Brock Media in the 2013 Aurora Guide. Being selected as one of two local Colorado residents to be featured in the annual publication is another wonderful example of synchronicity at work—the Universe’s way of saying to me, yet again, “You’re on the right path.”

In 2012, I became active in the local Aurora Chamber of Commerce. Late in the year, I was approached by Sandi Ausman, a marketing rep of  Brock Media, concerning purchasing advertising space in the 2013-2014 Chamber Directory for which Brock is the publisher. With the growth of my life coaching practice, a weekly Internet radio show launching on VoiceAmerica in early January and my first book in the works for release by Hay House/Balboa Press in the spring, it was the perfect time to commit to greater visibility. Following my typical “in for a penny, in for a pound” style, I purchased their premier ad: the full-color 8.5″ by 11″ back cover.

As I worked with Sandi to finalize the Chamber ad, we became friends. Turns out we have a lot in common: Sandi is a long-time energy healer and emerging animal communicator with her own inspiring “victim to victory” story. As I shared the story of my transformation with Sandi, she concluded my message of hope and transcendence would make a great feature in the annual Aurora Guide, another Brock Media publication. Brock’s management agreed and assigned freelance writer Mary Lynn Bruny to interview me and write the story.

Many thanks to Sandi Ausman, Tom Brock, Mary Jarrett, Mary Lynn Bruny, Hilary Stojak and Peggy Doyle of Brock Media for helping me spread my message of  hope and possibilities. It takes a village!

About djwlifecoach

I am retired from 40+ years of helping individuals and teams build lives and organizations they love. One of the great joys of my retirement from professional practice is having greater bandwidth to donate my professional and creative talents to support and promote animal and social welfare charities. During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world’s largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a five-year sabbatical to find healing and peace because non-stop work had taken its toll. My recovery from burnout led to finding my purpose guiding others on their journeys. As a board-certified coach, author, consultant, radio host, Reiki Master and EFT/tapping practitioner, I share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. 111419 DJW Sid CH Pet Corner Photo ShootI help clients achieve rapid, extraordinary, sustainable results by connecting who they are with what they do, a connection often lost through stress and the sheer busy-ness of daily life. Courageous self-awareness and unconditional self-love lead to honest choices based on priorities that nurture you and those around you on a journey to wholeness. Decades in coaching, consulting, change management, organization development, human resources and mixed media artistic expression honed my business sense, professionalism, creativity, intuition, leadership and communication skills. The result? Practical tools that help you become more insightful, creative, committed, productive and fulfilled. Even the most dedicated and hard-working individuals can shift from frustration to a sense of futility when their values, passion, work, and lives become disconnected. One of the problems with not taking care of our health is that the effects of ignoring it are often slow to show up. We continue to juggle family responsibilities, work and finances until we lose ourselves, waking up one day 50 pounds heavier in body and soul—no good to ourselves or anyone else. I love working with people who are ready to take life-changing action to make their dreams a reality. At each moment, you have inside you all the wisdom you seek to choose your life and your way of showing up. Limiting thoughts, beliefs and feelings can block you from moving forward. An absence of love and concern for yourself can result in negative head talk that holds you back with discouraging messages about who you are and what you can do. By listening and caring deeply, I guide you in connecting with your own inner wisdom. We identify the way you’d like to live. We determine what’s blocking you and release you from the hold those blocks have over you—unleashing the positive energy that will fuel you forward. Together we develop a plan to move you closer to your heart’s desire. My books, blog, radio show and signature coaching programs help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness. What’s love got to do with it? Everything! My book, Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life! (Hay House/ Balboa Press 2013) shares my story and the stories of 10 of my clients along with my signature Discovery Framework. For fun, I love reading, sewing, knitting, yin yoga, afternoon tea, opera and movies. I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my spouse, Wilson Abney, and the cat who runs our life, Maisy Jane.
