You live your life day by day, hour by hour, minute by painstaking minute until you are asked the question, if you had the chance to do something to change your life forever, would you do it?
On February 7th, 2013 I had the opportunity to
do just that. Was I scared? Yes. Was I excited? You
better believe it! I was a candidate for the seizure surgery, an
operation that could potentially be life changing. A few
months prior I went through all of the preliminary testing, and was told that after the
surgery I would either be 75-80% seizure free, but I may lose
more motor function in my left arm and for someone with cerebral
palsy, that would be devastating! I was also told that I could
still have some seizures at a less severe level. I made the
decision; I had to fight through the fear and go for it! No
matter what there would be some light at the end of the tunnel.
On February 7th I was taken in for my first of
two brain surgeries. Two weeks after that I was out of the
hospital, and today I am able to use my left arm. Something I
never thought possible!
Do I still have seizures you ask? Yep. Are they less severe? Absolutely. But, all in all I consider myself and will always remain GRATEFUL. I had an opportunity to CHANGE my life forever, and even though things didn’t work out 100% as planned I am GRATEFUL for what has come out of it.
Being grateful is the driving force behind
everything. If we are not grateful for what we have now
or even to go as far as to say what we had in the past, CHANGE
will not occur. Being Thankful every day for the things you have
and most of all do not have will give you the drive to strive
harder to reach your goals and conquer your dreams.
Keep on Keeping on Everyone,

The day I uncovered my authentic self scared me almost to death. All the questions I ever had were answered within minutes, which was way too much so I stopped them and let them come out slower over weeks.
Out of Hell and into the Light Fighting It All The Way
All of sudden I understood without a doubt what I was doing on earth and why I have always felt the need to medicate myself with whatever I felt would keep me alive and yes most of my life I used my career or business. That is difficult because people don't look at that as an addiction or should I say avoidance of life. You see I did not want to die at all I just did not want to know so much.
The funny part is I knew all of this from the age of six or least that is when I remember that I knew more than most 6 year olds. That is a scary place to be because I quickly found out that other people did not know what I knew. Now I see that they did know but they had buried it so deep that they did not know they knew.
This little girl spent most of her life denying her power, because I could not find a teacher or mentor to comfort me with the truth. What was happening to me was perfectly unfolding just the way it is meant to unfold. Instead, I felt fear everywhere I turned and most of all I felt if from the people closest to me, my family.
I got this conflicting message that it is not ok to be
you and so I spent the last 51 years never being
authentically me under any circumstances. I was
programmed (that is what I heard) repeatedly by every
relationship friend and family member that I was not okay. They
would say slow down your going to fast or your energy is too much
for me or Dawn what did you do wrong now.
Those things all came from my mother and much more that told me who I am naturally is not a good thing. Everyone I seemed to be attracted to confirmed that for me. I was only attracted to people who couldn't or wouldn't accept me the way I am. Always a whirl wind of energy and just too much.
I now see now they were doing the best they could at the time with the amount of awareness they let in. I had no idea that I was being hurt and that hurt over time my denial would cripple me in the area of love and relationships. Eventually it started to affect my whole life until my life didn't feel wonderful anymore it began to feel like hell on earth.
I was so good at pushing this down that in order to hide
this from myself and the world I replicated myself at a
time where I felt was my best, that was my armor or mask as it's
called. I thought if I just keep on believing that I
am happy I will be all I have, to do is hear it enough times and
I will believe it. It worked for too long until one day it
How I discovered or uncovered all of this was I had a block in the relationship area that I knew I had but convined myself that I healed it because I now had a boyfriend that accepted me for me I thought that was all I had to do. Oh boy was I in for a scary ride. I buried all of this and tried to move forward with all this weight on my back.
I started to block myself in my business that was very foreign for me so that got my attention at first. However, I dismissed it to hormones or life and other people's negativity anything but me it was always you.
I could not see for the longest time that my blockage of denying love was growing so big that it started to affect my business relationships. That started to affect my income and this girl is a moneymaker and success builder and when I couldn't create what I had done my whole life so easily I realized that something is wrong here that a business seminar or business plan is not going to fix it.
I made attempts to get help but remember I am hiding the depth of this pain, the real problem from myself so I didn't go to the right places for help. I went looking for the solution outside of myself and that will never work. That is like building a house on a rooting piece of land and hoping no one will smell it.
What was killing me won't' show up in an X-Ray and people can't see it but they can feel it and they may not know what it is but it will not attract them to you it's just the opposite and that is what started to happen to me.
To jump ahead the moral of this short
story all the wonderful business techniques, goal
setting, vision boards, mind maps and systems for your business
alone could not put humpty dumpty back together again. I
had to find my blockage walk through it and let it go and you
would think that is the end of the story. Wrong that is
where the story begins my freind I have finally arrived at the
party this time.
I feel like I did when I was a kid who now gets to sit at the big people's table on thanksgiving. I am a small fish in a big pond and as I am looking around feeling little and scared and I see all the fish are the same size I am. It's just my perception that I am different and that is a comforting feeling to know that I am home and embarking on the journey I was born to walk.
Today the message is It's OK to BE YOU! Moreover, it is the only way to have real happiness real power and real knowledge. You are not alone we are in this together and together we will support, teach and empower the other people that are still hiding because they do not know it is safe. I am telling you IT's SAFE and you are loved.
I personally invite you to "Embrace Your Power and Live Your Best Life." a Life changing journey for all coaches, mentors, teachers, guides, motivators, mothers, sisters, brothers, fathers and life changers. It's time and you are not alone. Dawn XOXO
There has never been a year in your life, nor will there ever be, like the one we’ve just entered. 2012 has arrived and with come many life-changing events. We are now into a phase of heightened and accelerated change. We’ve all been hearing about the much-fabled 2012 transition, but it doesn't matter whether 2012 has a Mayan calendar root, whether it involves astrological events such as the Uranus square Pluto or the extremely rare Venus event in June, how 2012 will influence us cannot be overstated. Material and information we were not expecting will come to the surface. We will make discoveries about ourselves, our relationships and our society that can change your life. Are you ready for it? Finding the right mentor can make all the difference in the world. Perhaps your mentor is to be found here at Motivational Whisperers.
A huge thank you to Dawn who brought me to the MW fold. I feel very enriched by all I have seen, heard and participated in, with such awesome peeps!
I am looking back on this year of learning, with much gratitude and love for all those who helped speed me on my journey. I am blown away by the caliber of people I have met, the sheer volume of information I have been able to soak up and the new friends I will go forward with into 2012.
For me once again, 2011 was yet another Phoenix-like rising from the ashes; taking on a new challenge, immersing myself in the Social Web. I am happy to be counted among those who can call people like Dawn Abraham, Patricia Wall and Mari Smith mentor.
In 2012 my journey will be all about 'FOCUS': Laser sharp and directly onto Google+ and by extension Google and all that they offer , I look forward to sharing the wealth of information and applications that I utilize daily, which will make this new Social web a more interesting place with many more avenues for us all to explore.
TROOL-Y looking forward to 2012!

The Life Changer Hour on Facebook is about changing lives by the minute.
Right now, it is on our Facebook page although it goes to Twitter and LinkedIn as well. I didn't plan it like that it happened that way and so has many other amazing things about this revolution.
It all just happens... or does it... ???
Motivational Whisperers LifeChanger in the weeks/months to come will be different than anything you have experienced before. Get ready to have fun and an opportunity to interact with other people who like you are ready to change their lives and make their wishes come true.
Motivational Whisperers is an community about giving and inspiring people to be the best they can be. With that, it is important that the experts and leaders who are guiding other people walk the way we talk.
Life changer is where we can do that and go through the process ourselves as we share with our peers and friends how we make our dreams and wishes come true.
Feel free to add your wisdom, love and inspiration to the Motivational Whisperers page. That is our page and together WE can continue to make Motivational Whisperers to go place for making your wishes come true.
Make your wish come true is inspired by the Universe and of course the angels. It's about how we as experts in this field tap into our highest place= spirit or god or universe or Buddha or guides whatever you want to call it, a name is a name.
It doesn't matter what you call it. What matters is that you find it and tap into it and then share how you did that with as many people as you can.
What has come out of all of this is we all do a one to four minute video showing in some way or expressing how we make our dreams come true.
If it isn't a video than something else visual or audo that can be played on a facebook wall real time. You will also type real time on the wall and that will go out to Twitter and Linked in reaching close to 200,000 people to start.
Share from an authentic place with one intention to be of service to whoever needs to hear your message.
Yes, Life changer is changing and it's changing because it's changing me. I am not trying to control this or make it something it's not. I was doing that, I tried that but it wasn't working.
I just stopped and let the message come through and when I did, I saw the most incredible vision. It was about my purpose on this plant at this time in my life and how I can be one of the people that guide you to find your purpose so you can guide others to find theirs.
Ever since I tapped into what the universe was trying to tell me I have seen clearly, what this "really" is and it's not up to me to decide who is a part of it. It's up to me to put it out there and the people who are supposed to be a part of it will see it show up in their lives and know.
How to make your wish come true will go on every Tuesday until it ends. That can be in one month or one year or two years or never. It is what it turns out to be and that is beauty. If you do what is real and you go outside your comfort zone to get there you will have a true-life changing experience of the best kind.
If you are reading this, it's because this message is for you. If you don't see this you won't know you didn't see it and I rest my case. :)
Meet us every Tuesday at Noon. You can go to facebook you can go to you can go to Twitter or LinkedIn for the live portion if you miss that you can come here and I will have the video and outline of what happened. You will also see all the previous ones if you are starting this process in the middle.
That is it all you have to do is show up. There is no cost there are no rules the only thing you have to do is commit to you that you will give making your wish come true your priority and make Tuesdays the day you get your wish charger and move forward in the direction of making your wish real.

live event held on our facebook page you can come to Motivational
Whisperers and find it in the blog the category is life changer.
