A massive heartfelt thanks to the beautiful Astera for helping me on my Journey.. I am a very spiritual person and have been for many years. I am a Reiki practitioner, I meditate on a regular basis and I am very much in touch my my feelings and intuition. Despite my focus on the positives in life, I was noticing a pattern of negative people in my life who either lied to me/stole from me/attacked me on a spiritual level/hurt me. It was only after I had soul detection with Astera, where the blocks that were placed on me on a deeper level were founds and removed, that I felt a whole new magical energy inside. Things then began to flow better, I started to attract better people and circumstances. I have had many healing sessions with many practitioners in the past but this has to be the most effective one and permanent. Whereas the effects of other healing energies seem to only be temporary. Astera is so gifted and talented at what she does. She is very intuitive and has a wealth of knowledge that can help anyone. Thank you Astera xx

In mid-September, Positively Naperville received a letter to the editor from Loren Michaels Harris regarding an NPR.org story about the Ohio police release of graphic overdose photos featured on Sept. 12, 2016. As publisher of the hyper local monthly publication in a city focused on fighting addictions and drug abuse of all kinds, I was struck by Loren’s thoughtful, timely and meaningful words, especially as they related to local initiatives such as “Connect for Life,” “KidsMatter,” and Project H.E.L.P. His reference to being a motivational speaker and his never-ending story of survival prompted my wondering about a presentation to our Rotary Club of Naperville-Downtown. Our small Rotary club is always looking for 30-minute programs. Speakers are invited to present educational topics such as the one addressed in his letter. We talked, we met, Loren agreed and the date was set for Oct. 26. Though electronics failed to connect that afternoon, preventing members from viewing Loren’s video introduction, he punted ably, landed on his feet and started from the very beginning of his 54 years. The trials and tribulations that have contributed to Loren’s strength of character and determination live within an engaging story of surviving one birth mother, one adoptive mother, and 20 foster mothers. Against so many obstacles, Loren is a survivor of the foster care system who says his only source of continual healing from the scars of foster care comes from addressing the need for better protection of all children, especially from social media, neighbor to neighbor. Rotarians experienced a very compelling presentation by a man who appears to be at home with his powerful story, one that needs to be told over and over—with or without the video introduction.

It is evident that Betty Arntson takes great pride in her work and strives to assure that her clients are successful in their endeavors. I recently graduated with a Bachelors in Business Administration, having worked in education for all of my adult life, I needed assistance in preparing for a career change. Betty revamped my resume to focus on my business skills, as well as helped me brush up on my interviewing technique. Betty is very reassuring and has a knack for helping you realize your full potential and what you have to offer to a company. She has been very attentive to my questions and concerns. Betty stayed in contact throughout the hiring process and helped me understand some of the delays that occurred. Betty is a great resource for anyone looking to make a career change or find a new job.

KeriAynn provided care for my Husband who suffers from Alzheimer’s while I got away for a much needed break. She was amazing! Her knowledge about the disease, and ability to communicate with him were extraordinary. He absolutely adored her. Charlie was easily agitated, but KeriAynn had a very calming effect on him. She was extremely responsive to his needs and cared for him with a level of professionalism and compassion that is not easily found in a Caregiver. She could not have been more suited to care for the love of my life. Rhunette Humrich

        About

        Welcome to your journey towards your best self. Our work together would center around how your thinking can be mastered in order to create an extraordinary success in business and in your life. The powerful and unique coaching program is 10 weeks in length and is centered around daily interaction via an online journal, coupled with weekly one-on-one thought-provoking calls. Let's begin your journey. Before, my own frame of mind journey, that ego, self-doubt, fear, and anxiety, wasn't recognized as an intruder until it began to overtake me. I felt wrong - untrue, and that I was thrashing around in my world in a way that was not sustainable or bringing me anywhere near inner peace and genuine happiness. I was living by the "should's" of life and not the "should's" of me. After discovering the Frame of Mind coaching program, I was able to uncover layers and layers of thinking that was completely standing in my way. I was standing in my own way. After the completion of 10 weeks, I knew that this was something I wanted to lead others through. My world blossomed in front of me after putting the principles to practice. "Things" worked; life worked. It is the world's way of speaking to you. Life is now a never-ending lesson - a journey - like a beautiful story of a warrior. By becoming fearless and getting out of my own way, I grew into bravery and have been flowing through life with ease, integrity, and passion. Discovering how your thoughts are in the way of your true happiness and success is a gift that will reshape your entire life as you know it.

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        What is a life coach?

        A professional, accredited life coach works with people to help them make important changes in their life, either growing in their profession or changing gears in their personal lives. They help clients turn their dreams or wishes into realistic, attainable goals. They guide people through the process of making life changes by helping them evaluate the steps they must take to reach a particular goal, then help them decide how — and whether — to take those steps in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. A life coach acts as a motivator, strategist and accountability partner. Unlike a therapist, a life coach doesn’t help solve problems from your past — they’re focused on helping you move forward with new ways of acting and thinking that will help you reach your goals. Some people specialize in particular types of life coaching, including life balancing coaches, small business coaches, executive coaches and personal finance coaches. Some meet clients in person, while others hold consultations over the phone.

        Regardless of which type of life coach you’re interested in, make sure the person holds an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential. There are three tiers of credentials: Associate, Professional and Master, which require coaching experience ranging from 100 hours to 2,500 hours.

        How much does a life coach cost?

        A life coach helps clients set and reach professional and personal goals, develop positive habits, and deal with stress. Some people meet with a life coach once or twice, while others form an ongoing professional relationship, meeting regularly in person or on the phone. The average national cost to meet with a life coach ranges from $80 to $130 an hour. Some coaches offer per-session pricing, especially for one-time meetings; expect to pay an average of $100-$125. People who want to work with a coach over a period of time to explore life transitions, career growth or lifestyle changes may be able to get discounted pricing in a package. For example, three 60-minute sessions cost an average of $300, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $350, and four 60- to 90-minute sessions plus unlimited contact between sessions cost an average of $400. Some specific types of coaching, such as relationship or marriage coaching, cost more than standard life coaching. For instance, three 60-minute relationship coaching sessions cost an average of $500, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $550, and six 60- to 90-minute sessions cost an average of $650 when purchased as a package. Training and experience can also affect the cost of hiring a life coach. An Associate Certified Coach, who holds a certification that requires only 60 hours of training and 100 hours of coaching experience, will charge less than a Master Certified Coach, who typically has at least 200 hours of training and 2,500 hours of coaching experience.   

        Why get a life coach?

        People of all ages and in all careers have called in a life coach. Life coaches are accredited professionals who can help you figure out the tangible changes you can make in your life to reach your goals; they can even help you turn your dreams into goals, if you’re not sure where to go next. A life coach can also help people find their purpose in life. Life coaching clients often have an idea of what they want to do, such as help people or work with animals, but don’t know how to turn that passion into a career. A life coach can help clients work through the options to find a clear path with concrete steps that lead to an attainable goal. A life coach can also help clients make a major career change, such as starting a new business. Life coaches can help clients develop better habits that will make them more successful, acting as an accountability partner. Life coaches also often guide their clients through major transitions in life, such as a career change or other stressful situations that are made easier with guidance from a neutral third party.
