    How to Rebuild Your Support System After Losing a Loved One

    Our world changes so much after we lose a loved one that our lives need to change too whether we want them to or not. Change is naturally difficult for most people and is like going through growing pains. But the end result of these changes is often serving us far better. Make sure to honor all your feelings but be willing to change anyway! This change happens during all the transitions in our lives. At this point your daily routine has probably fallen apart, your family dynamic is different and your friendships have shifted. You may feel that there is a distance between you and some of your family…

    Gracefully Grieving: What Does It Mean To Be a Widow?

    People often ask me, “why did you choose to be a Grief Healing Coach?” I have to say that in a million years, I had never planned on being a Grief Healing Coach. But God has his own ways of directing people to where they need to be. My dream job since I was little was to either be a police officer, lawyer or journalist. I wanted to be someone who could help others who needed to be protected and give them a voice (you may see a pattern here). Growing up in poverty in China, all of these jobs were far out of my reach because if you didn’t…

    Using Affirmations to Achieve Your Goals

    The one thing that is used a lot when coaching and training others is the power of affirmations. Affirmations are positive statements that can help you challenge and overcome your self-sabotaging behaviors and negative thoughts. When you repeat affirmations often and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes and remove limiting beliefs. Below are my affirmations from last year. Now when I look back, these affirmations have helped me reach the point I am at now which is that I truly believe I am loved by God, that I am good enough and worthy enough in God’s eyes. “I am so much more than my emotions, my…

    Finding a Balance Between Mind, Body and Soul

    Life is a balance of our mind, body and soul. Do you believe one area is more important than the others? Some of us believe inner beauty is more important than outer beauty, others believe a smart mind is more important than a fit and healthy body, while others still believe a spiritual life is more important than the mind and body. I believe the mind, body and soul are all equally important. If we ignore one of these areas, our lives become unbalanced and incomplete. Don’t settle with the limiting belief that you can’t have it all. There are many people who DO have it all! They have a…

    How to Heal Using Your Built-in Energy Healing System

    As a widow who has experienced grief firsthand, I have to tell you that you may be grieving the wrong way!! I know this statement may make some of you angry. Before you start to throw eggs, bricks or knives at me, just hear me out! We have all been taught that only time will heal us and that we have no power over our grief. Therefore, all we can do is to wait out our grief. This means that we have to suffer for a long time and that our grieving journey will never end. Does this sound familiar? Have you ever asked yourself if this is actually true?…

    International Widow’s Day: What It Means To Be a Widow

    You may not know it but today is International Widow’s Day! I didn’t know about it until I became a widow myself three and a half years ago. There are many people who tell me that I don’t look like a widow because I am too happy, too powerful and too put together! So it got me thinking that it is time to redefine the term WIDOW. Or better yet, what should an awakened, empowered widow look like? A widow is a woman whose world was unwilling destroyed and shattered. Being sad, angry, confused and scared is normal for widows at the very beginning stages of grief. But at the…
