Is life changing for you? Maybe through retirement, relationship changes or simply by choice?
Are you feeling bored, lonely, and rudderless? Like you know life is supposed to be good, but it just doesn't feel it right now?
I have been there. I know what that kick in the stomach feels like. But I have found a way that has helped me move beyond those feelings of being lost, without purpose, and all alone.
Let me help you by showing you what worked for me. In fact, I've dedicated this part of my life to helping you and others like you through various life changes. I'd like to introduce myself. I am Denise Peterson, and I am now living an extraordinary life after experiencing the healing that comes from releasing trapped energies inside of me. I am now free to let myself grow!
In fact, I'm now able to thrive not just survive my life in retirement (aka my 3rd act). And I welcome you to check it out, too.
Now, I pay it forward by helping others relieve their pain on a deep, soul-based level so they can let the light shine in.
If it worked for me, it can work for you.
Ten years ago, I was a single woman in mid-life working feverishly to raise money for a capital campaign for a community health center. I had spent my career in the non-profit world helping vulnerable people get a hand up in life.
I loved nonprofit work, but I was starting to feel the pressure of life, the passing years, and a job for which I was not suited.
What was extra hard was the grief I held from so many family losses. This included the loss of my marriage, the deaths of my sister, father, mother, and nephew, and the sense of exhaustion I felt.
I even tackled finding a life partner after divorce like everything else in my life: with a checklist, a plan, and a drive.
But that part did not work out so well, either.
Just five years ago, I was executive director of a small addiction recovery center. I loved my work! And, again, I thought I had found the love of my life. Only to discover that we were not at all on the same page about life purpose.
And then, my last family member died. Yes, I had children and even beautiful grandchildren, but this felt something like being orphaned. Really on my own.
I increasingly felt exhausted, disillusioned, and depressed even amid a great job, life, and community. What was I missing?
What did I WANT?
As the clock kept ticking, I started thinking about the next part of my life and about how to relieve the exhaustion and accumulated sadness.
I then encountered energy healing for myself. It changed my life forever.
With the help of a Body Code Practitioner, I was released from stuck energies that my subconscious (soul) recognized immediately when they came up to be released—to be sent to the ethers and let me move forward without them holding me back. Many of these had come during childhood.
It was a profound change that made me laugh and cry and cry and laugh all over again.
I was free from so much mental, emotional, and spiritual clutter, in a way that counseling had not touched (counseling had certainly helped, but this was different).
This was deep, energetic (spiritual) change that put me on a path of discovery and new vision.
I am here today as a testament to designing an extraordinary life from exhaustion, dissolution, and depression to a life of beauty, adventure, enthusiasm, and courage. Yes, courage.
My direction was to retire. To retire and pursue other ways of living.
Just two years ago, after a year of research, exploration, and questioning, I am living in a gorgeous apartment on the sea on a tropical island in Southeast Asia. I have great friends, excellent food, and all within a budget.
I really do pinch myself sometimes.
How did I get here!? Through learning about raising my vibration, learning to meditate, being grateful, releasing more stuck, unhappy energies, and learning to serve others who need this, too.
I am dedicating my third act of life (retirement?) to helping others in midlife who want to create a new vision for an extraordinary life—whatever that might be for them.
I am a life change expert.
As a wellness leader, coach, and speaker, I help men and women in midlife and beyond get the clarity, confidence, and courage to be fully alive and actively engaged regardless of their age or stage of life.
I am little like Dorothy’s fairy godmother in the Wizard of Oz who keeps telling you to stay on your own yellow brick road. Or just click your heels because you have always had the wisdom in you. And I am always there for you.
I help you walk your own yellow brick road to discovering your clarity, your confidence, and your courage to find your own “Kansas.”
When you work with me:
The world needs those of us in midlife and retirement years to step up to living fully engaged and fully involved lives.
So, design yours to be extraordinary. The world still needs you!
