Soul Enriching Lifestyle Strategist Inez Bracy

Inez BracyRuth Anne Wood interviews Founder of and CEO of Inez Bracy International, LLC . Inez Bracy, Lifestyle Strategist helps clients create new habits that promote overall well-being, a sense of freedom, confidence, earn more money and peace of mind.

Ruth Anne Wood interviews
Inez Bracy

Growing up as a sharecropper’s daughter, Inez wondered “is this all there is to life?” At the age of ten she and her family moved off the farm into town…three streets and a post office. While in high school, Inez traveled to the New Jersey Shore to work during the summers. What an eye opening experience that was! She learned that YES there is more to life and that it was available to her.

Graduating high school and college, Inez embraced life with a robustness and joy that ensured her success. She devoured personal development books and trainings…noticing her life change as she learned. She knew she wanted to share this with others; that they can love themselves, be joyful, create a lifestyle of their choice, be confident and feminine.

Inez Bracy is the voice for business and executive women’s mind, body and spirit success. As founder and CEO of Inez Bracy International, LLC, she has created a dynamic enterprise that is devoted to empowering business and executive women around the world.

“I knew I enjoyed helping women, but did not know that I would be a coach…even though everything I ever did lead me to this point”

Inez’ coaching plans emerged while working at a small Florida union. She found herself frustrated at not being able to change and improve things, and her ideas fell on deaf ears. Then, in 2005 Inez made the decision that changed her life forever. “I finally realize that I should be in my own business! I was working in this union and was doing everything from organizing, to professional development, to typing, to courier; to copying …you name it! That was when I realized that I had the skills I needed to do this on my own.”

She quit her job. Without a mentor or coach to guide her, Inez immersed herself in books, seminars and workshops on business development. It didn’t take her long to realize that her business would be easier with a coach. Hiring a coach appealed to her because she knew the value in having an experienced guide who could help her build her business.

Hitting Bottom and Bouncing Back…

While being happy that she was free from her job, this proved to be a difficult time for Inez. She became unsure of who she is, what she was doing and why.

Inez hung in there. The thought of giving up her independence was too painful to bear, and her perseverance today illustrates how to find success if you really want it. “I trusted myself. This was my path. I listened to my heart and knew that this was what I was supposed to do. Soon enough I figured it out, one day at a time.” And that’s when her business started to move in the right direction.

The moment when Inez realized her risks would be rewarded was when other women she met asked her about her business with questions like, “How do you appear so confident? How can you help me be confident? How can you help me fill the empty hole inside?”

Inez’ a-ha moment was to create her first book, titled Rejuvenate Your Life: 21 Days to Feel like a Woman Again. A book to help women begin their journey to self-discovery and self-love.

Michael Craig helps us uncover the Logical Soul

Michael Craig, Logical Soul, The Money MatrixFrom reaching his recent charitable fund raising goals of riding 1000 miles on his unicycle in a year with a 100 mile ride on the weekend, to uncovering real transformations in confronting “The Wall” in our conscious and unconscious lives, Ruth Anne Wood of JV ATTRACTION and Live Your Peace interviews Dr. Michael Craig. Stories of following the path to temporary healing as a practitioner to seeking tools that offer lasting results for deep life and soul healing were the big topics of this conversation. Experience a powerful conversation with your inner child that has the power to let in new ideas that could expand your once limited pain and beliefs and hidden blocks around money, relationships and success. Listen to the end for this gem and then go deeper with Michael Craig’s Logical Soul resources!

Ruth Anne Wood interviews
Michael Craig


Kalibuwila Hospital, Near Colombo

Sri Lanka. It was a hot summer morning in this tropical south Asian country over twenty years ago that changed forever the way this doctor looked at the world . . . and how the methods revealed to Dr. Michael Craig would BLOW OPEN THE DOORS to our Inner Capacity to transform people’s Lives . . . Forever!

It Was a Normal Day at The Clinic…

Michael Craig was a 35-year old chiropractor enrolled as a working Intern at Medicina Alternativa for the study of Acupuncture and alternative medicines.  Dr. Anton Jayasuriya, a throacic surgeon, and international expert in the field of clinical acupuncture, homeopathy and complementary medicines was the head of the clinic, and taught us daily how to use alternative techniques  on real patients who thronged to the clinic.

Michael was wrapping up his morning routine when a woman approached Craig with her small son – a boy who looked to be around ten years old. The boy was crippled by rickets, a vitamin B deficiency that results in deformity of the legs and other symptoms. Not knowing what to do, but also not wanting to say no to his mother’s plea, Michael told the boy to lie down on the table and intuitively held a few points.  Strangely, the points heated up and started burning my fingers . . . but I was urged from a voice inside to keep holding, despite the struggles and cries from the boy!  He soon fell asleep, exhausted; I continued to hold the points.

Then a Miracle Happened!

Thirty minutes after beginning what turned out to be a very uncomfortable and intense session, the boy woke up, got off the table and walked away with straight legs and no limp! This sight was so unexpected Michael Craig quickly rationalized that maybe his legs were not so crooked before. The worshipful thanks from his mother, however, convinced me that this was no ordinary healing, although Michael was not able to repeat the process . . .

Dr Craig never forgot that incident, and came to appreciate why the ancient name for the island was Serendib, the root of the word Serendipity which was coined by an 18th century English writer and means “the faculty of making happy and unexpected discoveries by accident.”

Five Years Later

Serendipity entered Michael’s world again in a dramatic way back in the U. S. . . He was working with another patient and ran into subconsious resistance to my coaching.  Somehow, but asking the right questions intuitively, I found myself on the other side of what Michael calls the “Wall” that guards our exposure to change and percieved threats.

This deep, subconscious area – he found out – is also the bastion of “hidden decisions,” or source of inner power and creative intelligence.

By stumbling into – and through – this barrier, Dr Craig found he was suddenly also able to use this explosive power at will. He called this getting-beyond-the-barrier process “ACCESS” and the complete method The Logical Soul(R) process.   “Logical” was chosen because there is a conscious Intent going in to access and resolve a particular set of conflicting decisions.  The “Soul” part comes from Craig’s acknowledgment of this hidden intelligence that is both powerful and unique . . . like a separate being inside with its own agenda – or “prime directives” – that keep us from reaching our goals.

What This Means for You

Are you a coach . . . or want to be?  If so, do you actually transform people’s lives in each session? . . . Or merely hold them accountable if-or-when they do-or-don’t achieve their goals?

A coach  merely says to her clients “I’m only going to work as hard as you do…”  By repeating this common admonition, she is putting the onus on her client’s back to make the breakthrough themselves.  What I’ve found is that this coach – like most coaches – simply don’t have the right tools necessary to help their clients quickly BLAST THROUGH the barriers to their own perceived failure, self-sabotage and procrastination.  Unwittingly, she and other coaches actually do clients a disservice by not giving them the best possible solution for instant breakthroughs!!

What happened to Dr Craig in Sri Lanka that day was extraordinary, but certainly not unique. Quite simply, all miracles involve tapping into that infinite reservoir of energy and intelligence that we all possess, and anyone can do it! The SOUL knows exactly what you need and how to get there. Once you are truly aligned with this energy – and not just making a mood or affirmation about being aligned – nothing can stop you!

The Logical Soul(R) is all about getting Access your own powerful hidden intelligent being EFFORTLESSLY . . . without all the hype, mood-making, affirmations, goal-setting exercises, new age rituals, tapping, reframing, and endless series of workshops.

Become a coach that not only helps people achieve their goals . . . but provides the DAILY MIRACLES needed to blast them to the top!!

If you are NOT a coach, and simply want to transform your OWN life, that’s great!  But Michael Craig must warn you . . . by becoming that shining example yourself you will automatially affect the lives of others in a powerful way!

Bernie McDonald’s Coast to Coast Walk Across USA

Bernie McDonald, WaRuth Anne Wood and her husband Jason hosted Bernie McDonald on his Coast to Coast walking journey after making arrangements on Bernie stayed one night after walking into town around 5 pm. No rest for the traveled for Bernie was taken to three women’s 60th birthday bash with, lots of hugging, music, poetic roasting, hard to talk over music and dancing at Pebble Hill Church. (The birthday gals had been discussing this night shortly after they met a decade earlier.) Bernie wandered into the minister’s quieter room to return calls he got from friends and family earlier in the day. He doesn’t talk to friends while he’s carrying his sixty pound pack walking with poles because it drains his phone which he needs to navigate.

berndog yoga logo

Bernie, Jason and Ruth bonded over two tables of delicious potluck dishes and a table of local bakery treats with homemade desserts as Ruth’s community of friends since 1987 came over to met the ambitious traveler and shower Bernie with hugs and friendly conversation. OK, after the first unsuspecting woman hugged Bernie in a big welcoming embrace, Ruth put a couple of her girlfriends up to the challenge. 😉

Ruth Anne Wood interviews
Bernie McDonald

Bernie McDonald, berndogyoga.comThen the three went back home to Jason and Ruth’s abode for further exchange of ideas. Ruth did a kind of show-and-tell of her published books and 3’x5′ five element oriental medicine inspired wall hangings that she made into stationary in 2000. Then after a long Saturday Bernie left the living room couch to retired upstairs on the comfy futon in the guest/ massage room.

Ruth couldn’t resist recording the conversation Sunday morning between Bernie, Jason and herself over two smoothies; a bright orange one: Carrot, Mango, Apple and Cinnamon smoothie and a bright green one: Spinach, Apple, Banana and Date discussing how Bernie McDonald:

  • Plans his days with paper maps and GPS
  • Meets new people
  • Lines up his lodging for the night
  • Paces himself on physical activities between after he reaches the daily walking destination
  • Helps others where he can
  • Counsels well intended friends and family concerned about his travel status and well being
  • Teaches yoga
  • Practices mindfulness when stepping along the side roads that parallel the highway staying alert to turns before having to double back and expend unnecessary time and physical and emotional energy
  • Realizing quickly he doesn’t need much to be happy and
  • Humbly accepts donations for his teaching and awe inspiring stories of travels around the world.

These have been good ways to put into practice what he teaches in his yoga classes. This is Bernie’s new job that started August 23rd in Portland Maine. His work commute to California by foot is longer than most. From doing website design to working at a bakery Bernie is gratefully aware of his freedom right now to do this.
