- I Chose to go to Prison in Belize. #100DaysofService- with Tanya Hall
Join us for this incredible Journey! Tanya Hall is from the Sunshine Coast of Canada where she owns her own business painting houses.
I first met Tanya presenting to our Rotary Club here in Jaco, Costa Rica while on her inspirational five country journey. Tanya was literally painting her way through Mexico to Columbia for #100DaysofService. Tanya has been with the Rotary for over 20 years and truly lives by the mantra of Service above Self.
In 2021, after a 5 year battle with cancer, Tanya's beloved partner Dave passed away. In 2022 Tanya's 16 year old daughter was on exchange in Denmark and Tanya knew it was time to heal. Realizing the opportunity to combine her expertise in painting with her dedication to service, she started to plan. Through fundraising, networking and her many connections with local + international organizations, the dream manifested and supported Tanya through her life changing experience.1h 18m | Apr 25, 2023

- The eagle said, "Find your wings, it's time to fly!" I listened. - with Kristi Borst
Welcome Kristi Borst! I am so Grateful for my conversation with Kristi as she shares her beautiful and inspirational Journey of remembering who she was always meant to be.
Kristi Borst’s story is a delightful illustration of how life’s unexpected twists can lead us home. Ten years ago, at age 55, Kristi had a flashback memory which revealed her innate abilities as an integrative healer and spiritual intuitive.
Kristi’s Perspective Reboot energy healing and behavioral re-patterning processes have helped others release self-limiting beLIEfs, karmic/ancestral burdens, chakra blocks and childhood traumas at the root of pain, illness, and feeling stuck.
Kristi lives in Southern Maine, serving couples and individuals of all ages. She shares, “It’s never too late to find yourself, especially if you look with love in long-forgotten childhood hiding places! Guiding others there and helping them claim their greatest version of SELF is my passion!”
3:23 I started having a sensation of angst.
6:42 Excuse me, I have no idea what a chakra is.
13:06 In that environment of acceptance I really started to thrive!
30:09 My husband was very sick.
56:12 Love that parent unconditionally.
59:53 You are an actor in that story.
1:01:02 I’m going to rise above the pain and start to make new choices.
1:06:11 Just be open to the road signs that are calling you to more and better.

- United States Secret Service to Soul Communicator. My personal Journey back to Self. - with Emma Jensen
Emma Jensen grew up in the corporate and government worlds. Never knowing what she wanted to do she followed in her Dad’s footsteps and went into law enforcement. After a short stint she went into the corporate world and eventually transitioned into working for herself, pivoting completely. She has worked for big companies: United States Secret Service, Nike and Apple, but always felt like her impact was meant to be more meaningful and bigger than what she was doing. It was through her personal development journey that she found her way to her current calling, Animal Communication and Healing and Human Design.
Now she lives within her Human Design and creates the impact that she has been longing for all those years. She supports humans and animals through her offerings of Human Design and Animal Communication. She gives a voice to the voiceless. She helps animals and their guardians create a deeper, more rooted understanding in their relationship while providing supportive healing to the animal as well.
3:47 So many of us grew up with conditioning.
6:35 I was working a lot with Embassies and foreign diplomats…
13:56 I couldn’t see straight.
15:57 I didn’t even know personal development was a thing!
24:23 Who I’ve been and how I’ve shown up wasn’t me.
34:21 Wait, What? I don't know if I can do this full time!
38:27 Animals are here to teach us.
59:54 Who are they meant to be? Who am I meant to be?
1:01:14 Two of my horses are formally wild mustangs.
1:11:21 It’s really okay to sit in your emotions…
