Unbreakable Woman® is the compilation of my life's experience of seeking empowerment through intuitive intelligence and compassion. Like many young girls, I grew up terrified that I would be attacked. My mindset was if it's going to happen, it's going to happen to me. As a result, I practiced awareness and vigilance from an early age. My concern for my personal safety led me to become a body builder, so I could be strong. After winning two natural body building titles, I didn't feel any safer.
Then I became a professional fire fighter, so I could get tough. I thought this would make me a less likely target. The fire department was also a great way to continue developing my awareness skills. My crew and I were often the first to arrive on dangerous, unpredictable scenes, like a domestic violence call or gun shot wound, and listening to intuition became part of my standard safety protocol. After seven years of swinging axes, throwing ladders and prying car doors off with the Jaws of Life, I didn’t feel any safer.
As a sure solution to my fears, I studied martial arts so I could become a skilled fighter. I was certain that learning how to fight like a man would quell my chronic worries. After earning multiple belts in multiple disciplines, I still didn't feel any safer. How could this be?
It finally dawned on me that it wasn't my strength, toughness or fighting skills that made me safe. It was my intuitive intelligence that had been protecting me all these years. Awareness, intuition, boundary setting, assertiveness -- these were all of my natural skills as a woman that allowed me to come to my own rescue more than once. The moment I understood how powerful these skills were and that they could be consciously cultivated into mastery, the fear that had been haunting my entire life vanished.
A lifetime of neurotic fear lifted in single a moment of intuitive understanding. I wrote my book, Unbreakable Woman® - Compassionate Self-Defense & Empowerment, as a guide through that transformative process and first step toward conscious empowerment.
Currently, I am a consultant for fortune 500 companies and the US Military.
