I did not get here the easy way
I was a very sensitive, intuitive child who hid how often my guides came to me. Once I hit junior high I was sensing other people's guides too...it was too much so I learned to block it out.
I stumbled upon heart coherence in 6th or 7th grade. I called the feeling a "Heart Swell" and felt it many times while playing my saxophone in the band, or dancing. After High School, I didn't feel it very often. The stress of adulting seemed to place a cage around my heart. I had hit rock bottom a couple of times already by age 35. I had been through two divorces, was single parenting two beautiful, expensive children (one with multiple special needs), and had a bankruptcy and foreclosure under my belt. As if all that was not enough, I decided to go back to school for a bachelor's degree when I started dropping my dental hygiene instruments. I knew I wasn't going to be able to work clinically for another 30 years.
One day, with all that trauma stored up neatly in a package I could present to the world as a woman who "had it together," I had a terribly rude patient in my chair. He was mean and had me crying in the first half of the appointment. I had been reading a book on chakras and remembered the heart swell feeling from my youth, so after excusing myself to dry my tears, I let go and opened my heart fully leaning up against the bathroom door. I began shaking as my vibration rose. I went back into my operatory and poured more emerald green open-hearted energy onto that man's head than he likely had ever felt (think of where your head is when you go to the dentist). When he sat up a transformed man in tears, soft, broken, and vulnerable, I knew I had a gift that was lying dormant. I had not spoken a word yet he released pain, hurt, and longing in just 10-15 minutes of being in my expanded heart space. He told me his wife had died and he asked me to get coffee with him.
I wondered...if I could guide that level of transformation with unconditional love...what else might an expanded heart allow?
Since then I have married my dream man (I manifested him actually with an ideal man manifesto), successfully developed online courses & a coaching practice, learned website design & Kajabi LMS, raised amazing daughters, designed my dream home, and founded two organizations that are near and dear to my heart: National Network of Healthcare Hygienists (NNHH) and this organization Expansion Group for Women (EGfW).
I developed EGfW because women have different ways they store and release emotions and triggers than men do. We need a blend of neurological and somatic techniques for quantum shifts to occur. It's possible on your own through meditation, yoga and breathwork, but those nasty blind spots cause it to take much longer than necessary. My mission is to help as many women as possible experience the bliss, ease and joy I have experienced through manifesto writing, self-coaching, and working 1:1 with Lisa, with nothing in my outside world needing to change first.
ALL our answers and potential for transformation lie within.
The hardest things for me to overcome have been my addictions to guilt and overwhelm, and caring what other people think. I listen to the quiet tugs on my heartstrings now, instead of media, gossip, or my ego's voice telling me I'm a fraud. My Higher Self Michelle pulls me away for stillness as needed. I wrote a little book about it called Self-Coaching Mastery: Win the War Within.
I am blessed enough to have a biological sister who is my best friend and a fellow Master Coach and Healer, Lisa Freitag. Recently, we have collaborated to bring the world our ADOR'EM Model of Expansion Coaching and The Expansion Method. We teach our powerful blend of heart activation, somatic release & quantum coaching inside our Expansion Academy and in our Nervous System Reset 7 Day Challenge.
Lisa began coaching before me and taught me everything she knew. Then as I had success, I shared my tools with her. Over the past 7 years we have spent well over 10,000 hours on the phone with each other looking at root causes, themes, patterns and what ultimately causes transformation in women. We continue to learn new approaches, most recently Core Transformation for her, and Building Personal Resilience (HeartMath Institute) for me. We are both students of Joe Dispenza and advanced meditation techniques and are enjoying contemplating our Gene Keys. It's important to always be open to learning new modalities so we give the BEST possible to our clients and students.
Our magic is our relationship, and we are so excited to share it with those who feel called to it, and aligned with it.
I still enjoy privately guiding women through their own transformations and training new coaches in my methods. I enjoy receiving "Holy Shit" texts from my clients, and running workshops with my sister the most. Oh! and drinking wine with her...we live 11 hours away from each other so being together is a HUGE blessing.
It's the small things that make life blissful :)
