Michelle Hardeman-Guptill


I have a mission. My goal is to guide others on a journey back to their authentic selves to reclaim the vitality and confidence that is their birthright. Do you remember when you were a kid and there were moments where you were so full of energy, life and wonder? Where you felt invincible, like you could do anything? We have all had those moments, even those of us that have experienced significant trauma. For some of us, that version of ourselves has been buried for a long time. For others, recent events have dimmed that inner light and total belief that anything is possible. It is absolutely possible to go back inside, to those moments where that light and life force were dimmed, shut down or scared out of us. One way back is through the exploration of the origin of some of our limiting beliefs, many of which were formed before the age of 6, and continue to affect our lives today. Research has shown that the majority of our behaviors are directed by our subconscious mind. By definition the subconscious is that which is below our awareness. Parts of ourselves are “frozen” in time at the moment of these impactful experiences and we are continuing to act out or limit our choices based on experiences that for some of us occurred decades ago. If it is time for you to recover those lost aspects of yourself and if you are ready to uncover your true essence, then you have come to the right place.
