In my early 20’s, what felt like an ancient longing stirred inside of me – a longing for something greater, something deeper than what life had presented so far. I spent my 20’s and 30’s shuttling between my internal reality (what I sensed to be true), and my external reality (what society, family, and religion told me was true). Like untangling a ball of string, I began the work of sorting and sifting truth from illusion.
Three years before my 50th birthday, a mysterious, debilitating rash covered my body, making even the touch of my clothes painfully unbearable. As difficult as it was, the rash became my greatest teacher, allowing me to shed deeper layers of illusion and move toward a life aligned with who I really am and why I am here.
Along my journey, I used a variety of consciousness practices and tools. As a Certified Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Matrix Reimprinting (MR) Practitioner, I have found these two tools in particular to be highly effective in clearing subconscious limiting beliefs and strengthening our ability to step into the life that we truly want to co-create.
For me, that involved a major life change: moving to Portugal. I couldn't have made such a big change without support and without using EFT and Matrix Reimprinting. As we step into the bigger shoes of purpose and destiny, we must shed the old beliefs that no longer fit.
I've been working with clients for over 20 years. My work is rooted in the belief that our internal reality is not separate from our external reality – they are interwoven in a mysterious dance of co-creation. It is also rooted in my belief that in the world of thought, belief and emotion, we are much more connected than we realize.
As each one of us moves out of our automatic, stress-based reactions (lower mind) into conscious, love-based responses (higher mind), a sense of wholeness, power, and choice emerges not only for ourselves, but also for the interconnected web of humanity. As we heal, the world heals.
A word from my clients
"When I began working with Bernadette, I was experiencing a very challenging issue in my work. Although I normally feel quite capable of managing high levels of performance and stress, this particular challenge left me feeling disempowered, drained and unable to “rebound” as I normally do. I felt like the wind was knocked out of my sail. During our work together, Bernadette’s deep listening and wisdom allowed me to feel totally supported and uplifted. I was able to sort through the issue with clarity, insight, and confidence. Now I feel an energetic shift on all levels of my consciousness. I am resilient, moving through challenges much faster – like gracefully jumping hurdles while in motion. My decision making occurs easily, and I am stepping into greater leadership roles in my work. Even with extensive daily demands on my time and energy, I feel like everything is falling into place. I am in the “flow” of my work and am fulfilling my purpose at a whole new level."
Carol Teasdale, Co-Founder, Jackson Meadow Sustainable Development
"Bernadette is very gifted at facilitating coaching sessions that result in long-term results, as well as immediate relief. She has a treasure chest of knowledge and direct life experience from her many years of exploring holistic approaches to living life. She listens deeply, with non-judgment, and responds from a place of truth. She leads others with compassion, gentleness, wisdom and strength."
Judy Wachner, Executive Mentoring Director
"Thanks again Bernadette for the great session. Your intuition as you tune into me is amazing. I will enjoy letting this percolate within me for a while. And, I feel great! I find myself frequently referring back to the new insights from our session. You are a blessing to me."
Zoe Eckblad, Mother, Artist, Seeker
"Bernadette is a highly intuitive listener. As a healer, she allows the Divine to guide her and flow through her. I felt completely understood, accepted and affirmed during our work together. Through EFT we were able to get to my traumatic ground zero and with Matrix Reimprinting we transformed the experience to one of light and new life. "I am taken care of with compassion" is my new life affirmation. Thank you so much for your deep love, Bernadette."
