Tell us a little bit about yourself and Allow Your Spirit to Soar.

To know me today most would think I have always been a fearless woman, living my life with passion and purpose. But it wasn’t always this way for me. I worked my way up the ranks in Corporate America, as well as running my own successful marketing firms since 2001. However it wasn’t until that fateful day on September 17 2006, while in the middle of a panic attack I watched “The Secret” that started this amazing Journey.

Then on 11-11, 2009 I had the Allow Your Spirit to Soar Vision! By taking a HUGE leap of faith and putting my marketing company on hold, I devoted my full attention to create the very first Allow Your Spirit to Soar Conference on January 24th of 2010 which happened to be my birthday. The first of many conferences was an incredible success! The upcoming conference and all future LIVE seminars, tele-conferences, spiritual partner programs are based around the first of many books titled…Allow Your Spirit to Soar! No more Fear. No more Pain. No more Resentment. NO MORE! which is due to be released at the Conference and Book Launch on 1-22-11

What do you enjoy most about your profession and why did you choose it in the first place?

I have devised the ALLOW System© which I use every day and I want to teach it to the world! Accept Your Past. The Key is Forgiveness. Let Go & Let God (or whoever you choose to call your Higher Power; Live Your Life IN Light, Love & a Whole Lot of Laughter; Overcome the PPoT© (Person, Place or Thing) standing in the Way to YOUR Greatness, then Welcome Your New Life’s Journey, Thoughts and Way of Being! She continues; “Once you put this system into practice, your life becomes magical! When you shift your thinking to one of pure positive energy, everything shifts! It really is that simple. It is us “Human Beings” that want to make this thing called Life so complicated.

What was the inspiration for your company/project?

At the writing of this first book, every human being I have met in my lifetime, has or knows someone who has encountered one or more of the same “dark experiences” that I fortunately, encountered in my past.

The first chapter in the book corresponds to those PAST “dark experiences.” I will allow you to see my then, and reveal how I was able to heal myself through solely incorporating “spiritual” tools & resources.

My then starts with being adopted. The wretched “fear of abandonment” haunted me from the day I was born. Then as a child; I was a victim of molestation, followed by a very long bout of drugs and alcohol, then a brutal rape, (which left me for dead), then the depression set in, then a “not-so-good” marriage; then came a diagnosis of ADD and Bi-Polar. All the while, never feeling “good enough” to have or be in any kind of “healthy” relationship…including one with myself.

Despite several suicide attempts, incarcerations for drinking & drugs, many stays at 30 day treatment centers, following the advice given to me by those “other” support groups, psychologists/doctors prescribing “fix Kimberly pills”, and spending thousands upon thousands of dollars on the “human” way of trying to “get better” – on September 17, 2006, my “awakening to the light” began; hence this wonderful journey to the now.

Through my own evolution and hard work (I never said it was easy), I now see things so differently. I am able to forgive not only my PAST “experiences”, but more importantly forgive myself, which has finally enabled me to Allow My Spirit to Soar!

Why am I taking this leap of faith and putting myself “out there” for others to see and to possibly be judged?

Because it is time for me to help others heal, by providing them the opportunity to have the same tools and resources that helped me to become so FREE! I so love helping others soar; it truly feeds my soul!
