If you're looking to access your inner wisdom, improve relationships, increase your self-confidence, embrace opportunities & improve your overall well-being ... contact Karen.
Karen is kind, supportive & the real deal.
I had blocks but didn’t know how to access them nor clear them. Karen asked the right questions and the techniques she used cleared my issues & then some. Karen is kind, supportive, safe, and light-hearted.
I now use these tools to be more decisive about what I want to do in my life and to be aware of what I’m thinking and feeling.
Initially, my clients struggle to work through what is weighing them down. And I'll admit, each & every transformation I witness, fuels my soul. It's a big win ... but it's not because I'm special.
It's because I've come to realize (as do my clients), how fortunate we are to be able to use Tapping to clear a path for the life we desire.
And this is why I wake up refreshed, eager to embrace the day & the life & business I love.
Together we'll eliminate the noise & increase your energy flow to deliver lasting results.
Energetically Karen ... A Day in the Life
In the morning hours, I'm relaxed. I relish the silence & the gratitude I feel for the amazing life I'm living.
I love up on my sweetheart, have a good stretch, & enjoy a walk where I often get lost in inspired thought about how I can best take action to help my clients or grow my business.
Whether it's how I can show up as my best self or how the song of a sparrow can stop me in my tracks ... I pay attention.
The little things in life can make all the difference, as well as that very important morning hug with my daughter.
I enjoy dance breaks, laughter, smiles, and connection.
Weather permitting you'll often find me working on the back patio prepping my next business project, or dictating notes to myself while I garden.
I know with all certainty, it's the pressure of a warm embrace, wind on my face, my daughter's laughter, or the inviting scent of my sweetheart that reminds me I'm alive!
Tapping has changed my life for the better... and now all that is around me enriches my life each and every day.
I wish this for you ...
To create a life for yourself where you can be fully present, free of worry about the past or future.
To be able to invest in yourself & become inspired by meaningful & uplifting exchanges. To align with your values, for energy to flow freely & to live well.
It's about making a positive contribution to the world & living a life you love.
