About Vicki

How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become a Champion of “Clearing the Catholic Guilt“?

To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment, and a resulting “compelling story,” that brought me to where I am today- helping hard-working women, raised in the Catholic Church, struggling with anxiety and stress, how to finally enjoying joy, confidence and cash flow, while keeping your faith strong and intact.

I am what you call a “cradle Catholic.”  Baptized Catholic, attended CCD classes and then Catholic school.  Made my Confirmation in 8th grade, when I started my “lectoring career,” and even felt the warmth of the Holy Spirit when I was anointed! In college, I was an assistant to our Youth Minister, then I took over for him when he left.  I have helped on retreats in many capacities- kitchen duty, prayer team, entertainment team- even directing a few of them too.  I have taught Religious Education classes for Communion and Confirmation.  I have led small group meetings and large group presentations.  Attended countless Lenten Missions, conferences and studied with famous speakers like Jeff Cavins and Scott Haun.  I’ve been a regular Eucharistic Adoration adorer, went to confession/reconciliation regularly since 2nd grade and only missed two masses my ENTIRE life (one I was sick and the other was because of the burial of our pre-born baby.)  I educated my kids in the Catholic faith, even wrote songs and plays that taught about the Catholic church.  I attended multiple bible study groups too, and it was only in 2014 did I hear about God’s plan of sheer goodness for me and start to believe it was possible for me to have money and keep my faith.

I listed all of my history, not to brag, but to illustrate that I WENT 48 YEARS OF VERY ACTIVE CATHOLIC LIVING AND NEVER HEARD ABOUT GOD’S PLAN OF SHEER GOODNESS FOR US!

It is the first line of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and I had NEVER heard anything about it?!?!?!  Why aren’t we screaming this from the mountain tops?  Why isn’t this added to every homily?  Why isn’t this message the standard belief that everything else is centered around?

After I got over the shock of not hearing about it before, I decided to figure out if I really believed it.  Well, let’s see…I experienced 18 years of sexual abuse.  I have buried 3 babies and our family of 9 has lived below the poverty level for pretty much our whole marriage.  Hmm…doesn’t sound like sheer goodness to me.

So if I didn’t believe it so much, what did I believe?

Well for one, it was holier to be poor.  I listened to stories of saint after saint that gave up all their possessions for God.  Heard time after time that is was harder for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.  It is was important for me to quest for holiness (still is) so then we should be poor.  That was our belief and we lived that one out for sure!  Our family of nine either rented a home or shared space with family until we could sort of afford a house of our own- a two bedroom ranch with a big yard.  We lived on food stamps and state aid off and on for 11 years.  My husband was out of work for 3 years but I couldn’t get a career job as “it was holier to be poor. “

I also believed my body was evil.  That “Sins of the flesh” mantra was well ingrained.  I majorly struggled with weight issues, off and on from high school to present and I hated myself.  Absolutely hated.  I could look at myself in the mirror with absolute disgust, totally loathing the person staring back at me. So I spent most of my time in my head as my body was not a safe place to be and the teachings I heard in church reinforced that belief.  So I did alot of thinking, not feeling. I branded myself a sinner and believed my body was sinful so I freely abused it.  I thought I was God’s puppet and he was pulling my strings, controlling me and seeing how much I could take, because, after all, ‘God only gives you what you can handle.’

I thought I had to blindly obey everything from anyone in authority.  And if life wasn’t a struggle, it wasn’t worth anything. I quickly labeled lots of things “New Age” and looked down my nose on anyone who questioned anything from the religious authority.  And I thought sacrifice and suffering were better than joy and ease.

So if I had all these noble beliefs, all these lofty thoughts, why did I want to stuff my face with food all the time?

So in my quest to heal from the wounds of the sexual abuse memories that I had buried for 37 years, I discovered that these lofty, noble beliefs seemed to affect the way I felt about myself.  And the way I felt about myself affected the choices I made, which created the circumstances in my life which caused my life to be what it was.  I began researching  if I considered changing the beliefs, which in turn would change my feelings, which means I would make different choices, creating different circumstances, would my life be different?

I worked hard to process the triggers, that I once thought were “normal,” as it was all I knew.  But it was HARD WORK.  Lots of time, money and tears to make what seemed like little baby steps.  But even baby steps are good right?  I went to psychologists and did lots of professional counseling and processing.  And then I came across a book by Christian author Karol Truman, ” FEELINGS BURIED ALIVE NEVER DIE.”  She quotes from Prevention Magazine that 90% of the physical symptoms that we experience are a result of emotions that we have buried.  It made so much sense to me and I delved into her book and proceeded to use the script she included to try to figure out why I am overweight all the time.  “Protecting oneself, stuffing feelings,” were the suggestions she had that might be causes to my weight issues- wow did that makes sense to me!  I started paying attention to what what going on in my body and using her suggestions to what those aches, pains and weight gains might be meaning.

I made major headway but the work was hard.  I kept finding new modalities that could help me clear the negative emotions that were causing dis-ease in my body, even energy work that I have previously condemned as New Age.  But I would pray before I pursued something that I was intrigued to try, and if I felt in my gut that I should go, I would try it and inevitably I found more and more release, relief and peace.  In my mind, in my spirit and in my body. 

I began loving my body.  My secret struggle with bulimia that began when I was 16 finally ended as I embraced the truth that I was a temple of the Holy Spirit.  I began loving my body exactly the way it was, unconditionally.  The way God loves me, or so I heard.  And amazing enough, the more negative emotion I processed and released from my body, the better I physically felt, the more clear my mind was and the more connected to the God I heard about.  The God who had a plan of sheer goodness for me!

And now I am different. 

I believe that God has a plan of sheer goodness for me! And that includes financial abundance!

I believe that I have the power to choose!

I believe that we are literally created to avoid pain and move towards pleasure!  So if God designed us that way, why should we constantly battle to go against our natural wiring?

I believe my body is a barometer to let me know what I can process and clear to allow me to more fully connect with God’s plan of sheer goodness for me. 

I believe I am a child of God who sins (don’t label me a sinner.)

I believe life doesn’t have to be hard.  There are difficult things that come up, yes, but with my faith and belief, God will bring good out of everything. 

I believe that some people within the church have gotten things wrong.  Very wrong.

I believe that just as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit make up the Trinity, I believe our body, mind and spirit all need to be addressed. 

So now I am so passionate about helping other believers to clear out the charges, the triggers, the negative emotions that are preventing them from connecting with God’s plan of sheer goodness for them.

Who are your clients?

I love helping Catholics struggling with putting in so much effort with too little return in their jobs or careers, family dynamics or relationships how to transform their circumstances and finally enjoy a life of wealth, power and peace. They need to be open to possibly questioning what they have learned about the teachings of the Catholic church and how it makes them feel, and wonder if it really possible that is could be more about God’s plan of sheer goodness than about sacrifice and suffering.

  • Catholics who attend weekly mass
  • Catholics who don’t attend mass any more
  • Those who say “I was raised Catholic” but ….
  • People who were baptized Catholic but are practicing a non-christian faith
  • Someone who was negatively affected by someone else who was Catholic
  • Someone who prays and prays and prays but feels it doesn’t seem to bring relief and they wonder what is wrong with them
  • Those who have tried the positive thinking angle and that doesn’t seem to help either
  • People who are going through the “religious motions” but feel lifeless inside and long to feel the passion they have heard about
  • People who feel like they are doing all the right things but wonder why life so hard?
  • Those who are ashamed that they doubt God

What makes you different from other religious people/fanatics/teachers ?

I will not be judging you.  I am not interested in converting you.  My goal is not to get you back in a church pew.  I am accepting and welcoming of whatever circumstances you are in and whatever relationship you have with God (or whatever you have needed to rename Him to be.)

And I want to tell you that I am sorry.  I am sorry for whatever pain you have experienced that has caused a disconnect from God.  I want to apologize to you, recognize your hurt and honor the pain you have been living with. 

I am interested in helping you release the charge, the trigger, by helping you connect with whatever limiting beliefs you have that might be causing  you to feel guilty about:

  • Being resentful of your current circumstances
  • Not going to church anymore
  • Leaving the Catholic church
  • Not practicing any form of religion
  • Practicing your Catholic faith but merely out of duty

My passion is to help you clear the emotions related to the limiting beliefs so you have so you can connect with your Creator. 

I believe it’s all about relationship and I want you to feel, truly feel God’s plan of sheer goodness for you.

What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?

I work best with someone who is in tune, or willing to tune in with what is going on in their life and is willing to take responsibility for the circumstances they find themselves in and be willing to put the time, effort and financial investment in to better their circumstances.  Having gone through the processes first hand, I know what it is like to have your “truths” challenged, but knowing at the gut level that it is necessary. 

You can expect a sensitive, compassionate companion who knows what it feels like to =>feel nothing => feel nothing but negative and => come out on the other side feeling God’s plan of sheer goodness. 

It’s probably different from anything you have done before but it may also possibly be one of the most efficient and effective things you have done. 

Even though I am a “jump in the deep end” kind of person, I am sensitive to those who just want to “wade ankle deep” for a time. 

But you have to be willing “to get in the water.”

What type of people is this type of coaching NOT going to work?

My coaching will not be effective with someone NOT willing to “get wet.” 

Those fully embracing the belief that we are NOT responsible for any circumstances in our lives, that God is making it be like this, probably won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for.  Or would those that are not comfortable questioning some of the beliefs they hold or challenging anyone in authority. 

Other types of personalities that I won’t work with (without exception) are the whiners, “I am a victim”, “Poor me”  or self righteous types of individuals.  I am not here to debate theology with you.  I have the biblical and scientific basis for all of beliefs that I present and and not interested in justification arguments of those trying to “show me the truth.” 

I gently and respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why.  We’ll probably just not work well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money.  Is that fair?

Does this really work?

Yes!  The result of our work will permeate you entire life as well as your job, your family and friends and probably EVERYONE you come in contact with.  I know first hand as our household has become more fun, pleasant, interactive and peaceful. 

As you peel each layer you will experience a level of contentment that is permanent.  Aspects may rise up and need to be cleared but the work done is a session together stays done. 

Also, I am going to be teaching you a clinically proven mind/body tool so you literally have the resource at your fingertips.

How quickly can I expect results?

That depends on quickly you make those inner shifts.  Would you prefer to wade ankle deep for a while or are you willing to go deep?  Most clients who work with me are amazed at how quickly they get to an Aha moment that is permanently transforming, even at the first session. 

How can I guarantee myself that I will get the most benefits from my coaching sessions?

Be committed to yourself.  Understand that this is a process, a proven one, that works, especially if you use it daily.  My clients that have applied the techniques have successfully released their Catholic guilt and many other limiting beliefs as well in much less time than they would have on their own.
