How long have you been an Intuitive Life Coach and Energy Healer, and how did you become The Joyful Coach?
To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you the story that brought me to where I am today – guiding women like you on exactly what to do to connect with their authentic power, be at peace in their life, and confidently radiate who they truly be.
Since I was little, I have known I have
special, unique qualities. I was sensitive, painfully shy, and a very aware child. I could see and pick up on things, and feel what others were feeling. I knew this wasn’t ‘normal’, and somewhere along the way I decided to hide my gifts and do my best to fit in and be like everybody else. I tried as hard as I could to keep the peace within my broken family. My parents divorced when I was 4 years old and soon after, I became my Mother’s emotional caretaker. Both my Mom and my Dad remarried and I was constantly torn between them. I molded myself into someone who I thought my parents needed me to be, staying as small and as unseen as possible, trying not to make any waves with hopes of relieving the relentless tension. This was the beginning of me building up walls, losing myself, becoming a people pleaser and a perfectionist, with a total lack of personal boundaries.
When I was just 14, my mother could no longer handle the life that
surrounded her and on the verge of breakdown, she walked away leaving me and my 2-year-old little brother behind. Not long after, depressed and guilt-ridden, my mother fell heavy into addiction, and years of heart-wrenching pain, trauma, and chaos followed. I felt unlovable, abandoned, and alone, however, I couldn’t make it about me as I had a toddler relying on me. I took on much of my little brother’s care and the rest of my childhood vanished.
At 17, I became a mother and my world was suddenly a whole lot brighter.
The next 7 years of my life brought three more beautiful babes. Blessed with a daughter, and fraternal boy/girl twins. I knew it was up to me to break the cycle of abuse, addiction and dysfunction, and create a completely different environment than the one I had known. You name a course, I’ve taken it. My kids deserved more. I deserved more. I began to realize the patterns that I had inherited from my parents and I got clear on the true cause of my own issues and put in years of soul-searching, healing work.
My husband and I made a commitment that we were going to do whatever it takes to create a happy marriage and provide a safe, loving home for our children. We were young, poor, and without much support from our families… but we knew we had to try. We borrowed $260 from my father to take a parenting course – 20 cassette tapes all about raising your kids right! We listened to those stinkin’ tapes over and over again. How I knew at the age of 17 that we had to rewrite the tapes in our heads still blows me away. I look back now, and it is interesting to see how this was my first introduction to reprogramming the subconscious mind.
The caregiver I wanted to be as a child merged with the mom I
was becoming. I was born to be a mama, and motherhood brought me so much joy. On occasion however, my unhealed traumas from my childhood would rear their ugly head. The lack of self care, always putting my needs last, along with the pent-up anger and suppressed emotions stuffed deep down on the inside, I’d erupt like a destructive volcano, which would devastate me. I took so much on that it literally felt like some days I was going to explode…but I was determined to be healthy and be an example for my children. So, on the brink of a meltdown in 2012, I dove into self-care. I started to pay attention to my stress and how it affected my body. I began speaking my truth after years of holding everything in.
I promised myself that I, who was always so serious and routinely put myself last, would carve out time to enjoy and better myself. I was guided to one energy healer and then another, and the weight of my childhood trauma and the heaviness of the estranged relationships I had with my parents, began to lift. I knew I needed to learn more, and how to practice energy healing myself. Along with practicing Reiki healing, I took a health coaching course through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Each and everything I learned excited me. I began to open up, step out of my comfort zone, share more, and break down the walls that I had built around my heart.
At last, I felt safe and free from the toxicity from my past.
I made lists of what brought me joy. Meditation and other spiritual practices helped me ‘tune in’ to my needs and heightened my intuition. I invested my life’s savings into my own personal healing journey and transformation and began visualizing and gathering pieces of my ideal career. It all had one thing in common – I wanted to help others learn to love and forgive themselves, heal, and thrive.
Miracles by Marci, The Joyful Coach, was born.
By listening, and offering a supportive ear and safe, non-judgmental space, I began teaching other women how they too can heal their past and open up their hearts to experience more joy in their lives.
A friend recently asked me, “How did you become The Joyful Coach?”
Well, I don’t know about you, but when I look around, I see a lot of people who could stand to have a lot more joy in their lives. Do you notice it too or is it just me?
Before I finally got myself unstuck, my body was holding onto a lot of trauma, emotional baggage, and dis-empowering beliefs. Even though I was doing all the things that the experts say you should do to become successful, it was like there was an invisible barrier that I just couldn’t breakthrough.
I was listening to a lot of Abraham-Hicks at the time and had learned about the Emotional Guidance Scale … this gave me an idea.
You see, according to the teachings of Abraham, the highest vibrational frequencies are Joy, Appreciation, Empowerment, Freedom, Love, Passion, Enthusiasm, Eagerness, and Happiness. They taught that if you could change your state of being to the higher frequencies, you could change your entire life So that’s exactly what I focused on, and you know what? It actually worked!!
My greatest breakthrough came when I began using the tools of Access Consciousness and Subconscious Imprinting. I am now fortunate to live with more ease and joy than I ever knew possible and bringing these modalities into my coaching practice is allowing my clients to experience extraordinary success as well.
I am more passionate than ever about my mission to spread as much love, joy, happiness, and miracles to as many people as possible and truly be the difference I would like to see in the world. Pretty incredible, right?
Amazingly, Courageous women like you, are stepping up all over the world, facing their fears, getting out of their comfort zone, and creating magical lives they love.
I work with private clients, group coaching, facilitate classes and workshops: Living my life’s purpose of turning my pain into my greatest power; while using my intuitive gifts and healing capacities to help women follow their joy, grow their confidence and tap into their own magnetic superpowers.
I have created Follow Your Joy – Three or Six month coaching packages, in which I work 1:1 with my clients to support them on holistically following their path to greater happiness in life, work, relationships, finances, and more. This is for the woman who is ready to acknowledge her awesomeness instead of limiting herself and playing it safe.
Using practices such as Subconscious Imprinting, Access Bars, The Tools of Access Consciousness, Reiki healing, Mindfulness, Qi Gong, Holistic Healing & Healthy Living Tips and more, Marci offers her clients the tools required to eliminate disempowering beliefs, reclaim their joy, and radiate from the inside out.
