Julie Varga

Gail is one of the most insightful and honest people I have ever met.

I first went to Gail because I needed tools to handle life versus sitting and talking about all the things that have gone wrong with my life.

My life has been traumatic since I was born. I wanted find a way to break harmful patterns that influenced my choices and contributed to my life continuing to be traumatic.

Gail heard me and gave me excellent tools to re-evaluate my belief systems which were holding me back from living more fully. She never once allowed me to wallow in my despair. As soon as she saw me begin to tailspin, she called me out on my pity party and helped me realize I am more than the sum of my experiences. I get to choose what I believe and what I create my life to be. It’s not good enough to simply have survived. I want to live!

Gail recommended I attend her Women’s Wellness Seminar and guaranteed that I would have a breakthrough. I think I had multiple breakthroughs and I’m still having them. My mind was blown more than a few times and I discovered things about myself I had buried deeply or was unwilling to acknowledge, including my own power as an individual.

During the Women’s Wellness Seminar I was able to connect with other women whose goals are like mine in that we all want more from life and we all want to maximize our potential.  

The biggest lessons I learned are the worst cage I lived in is the one I created for myself. I did this by adopting belief systems others give me and not realizing I have a choice to believe whatever I want and trust myself to know what is best for me. This can only be achieved if i TRULY love myself.

We all make mistakes but we can learn from them and our mistakes don’t have to own us.

I also learned the more I suppress what’s happening inside, the more damage I cause in my life. There were moments during the seminar I was faced with choices to feel things that were pretty horrifying or honor myself and feel what was there so I could finally heal myself. By burying the trauma inside me I was ignoring the most wounded part of myself that needed healing. It’s like walking past someone who is bleeding out or having a heart attack and ignoring them. I could never fathom doing that to someone else and yet I was doing it to myself daily.

Gail helped me realize that, not in so many words, but this is how I interpret the lesson.  

I am much happier now. I feel lighter and there are fewer days where I feel helpless and hopeless. On those days I know what to do for myself to identify what is really going on and deal with it in a healthy way.

The seminar was the beginning of my mind being more open and I am living and learning more than I ever have in my entire life.
