I was born and raised in Romania with my four brothers during a very dark Communist era. I learned (often by the light of a candle) from cooking, cleaning, knitting, babysitting, how to open a can with a knife before I was seven to all the disciplines children learn in school.
At 22, after graduating college, I left Romania to work on cruise ships. That was an intense training on how to communicate with passengers; take care of their luggage and quarters; deal with paperwork and safety in a floating city; and manage countless other duties.
After five years of work aboard ships, I built a farm in Romania, I participated in building a meat-processing factory, and I started a publishing company.
Despite all this experience, I found myself not understanding the purpose of life. Wondering about it all, I set myself on a whole new course of learning, unlearning, and self-revealing.
In 2006, while still in Europe, I began to learn and practice energy healing techniques, Hypnosis, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Mind Control, Life and Business Coaching, Health Coaching, and more.
In 2010 I moved to the United States to study at RSE, in Yelm, WA. I have become even more passionate to know about the power of mind over matter.
In 2014 I graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, NY, as a Health Coach.
Somewhere in between I discovered my passion for writing and painting.
Lyra Arabella is a fairly new citizen of Planet Earth. Like all citizens on this planet, she will be taught how to navigate and live her life.
I, her mommy, decided to create a series of short and simple books to pass on to Lyra, and those who find it useful, what I have learned so far.
