Over the past month, I observed several incidents that struck a chord deep within my heart. Within a matter of 3 weeks, the local news reported numerous incidents that gave me pause.
First case: a mother, an accomplished musician in the midst of a separation, killed her two young children, then stabbed herself.
Second, a mother went missing along with her three young children, aged 5, 3 and 1. Days later, she was found dead in her car in a Target parking lot; her children alive. Sadly, the medical examiner recently ruled her death a suicide.
Third, a four year old was brutally murdered by her mother and boyfriend with a history of drug addiction. Repercussions were felt by the state child protective agency as some employees resigned under the dark cloud that precipitated “accountability”.
Finally, the text from a friend sharing about the apparent suicide of a fellow co-worker. I read it just as I walked in to present a parent workshop. My heart was heavy. I intuitively changed the focus of my presentation that evening, weaving these incidents into the evening’s lesson. I longed to help parents understand how our unhealed feelings can impact families.
My heart has ultimately led me to change the direction of my work. I am called now to help women heal and transform at their very core. Why?
Although these cases demonstrate dire circumstances, I believe that today many women (and men) are suffering needlessly in silence. My heart is crying, “WE cannot sit quietly any longer, numb to what we are witnessing. WE are at risk of losing ourselves!! Our children are at risk! And, we have the power to make a difference.”
Women have always been the heart and soul of families. Paradoxically, cultural and societal expectations, technological advances, and self-imposed demands are creating a severe disconnect from our divine, feminine wisdom.
This wisdom is the natural source of our personal power, the foundation of all things good. And, this wisdom is in your very spirit! Once awakened, she ushers in love, compassion, unity, creativity, community, and more. This energy has dwelled within us for ages.
Are you feeling uninspired, out of balance, stressed, or uncertain? Do you feel a sense of urgency? It’s divine wise woman within gently whispering, “It’s time to awaken.” Heed her call to heal the wounded child within, embrace unconditional love, and bring the light of who you are to the world. This is the best way forward because when we heal ourselves, we bring healing to others.
Today more than ever, the world needs the whole, wise woman you are born to be. I can guide you to lighten up, live more wisely, and increase wellbeing. I offer training and coaching that empowers women by activating the “Gifts of the Corazón ~ Heart” and connecting them to their divine inner wisdom.

I send you loving hugs ~ cariño y abrazos,
