A few words from Angie Gisler on how it all began:
“So, where to begin? Every journey begins with a single step, as they say, so here it goes! My personal history as a young girl involved growing up in an environment with a backdrop of abuse, abandonment, and five generations of mothers mistreating their children. As time went by, I was fortunately blessed with a stepmother that offered me unconditional love, a foreign concept to me at the time, which shaped my mindset to believe that there is indeed light at the end of the tunnel.
It was at this moment that I decided to dedicate my life to my mantra; ‘what you focus on will EXPAND’. Needless to say, that positivity, grace, and banishing negative thoughts was the new name of the game!
By living in multiple countries on various continents teaching and traveling as a woman, I gained a fresh outlook on life which has been all-encompassing. How fortunate I am to have had these life-altering experiences! I’ve discovered a variety of cultures immersing myself in various ways of life, diving deep into what influences these behaviors. I have always been fascinated with young minds and their development in relation to their surroundings.
To further solidify my purpose and commitment to my practice, something miraculous happened during the beginning of my teaching career. Not only was I really good at my job, I truly enjoyed it and the passion just poured out of me! Every morning like clockwork, with the force of a tidal wave, the door would burst open and a tsunami of 5-year-olds poured into my classroom. “Hi, Miss Angie teacher!” they’d say, rushing past my desk and howling with laughter as they bombarded around the room. I would think to myself, ‘Wow, did I do that?”. The feeling I got from passing on positivity and knowledge was the moment I just knew.
I decided to further my academic education and develop myself, exploring the depths of my being and healing emotional wounds. Through passion and excitement, I felt through this personal discovery, my purpose became clearer and clearer. By breaking patterns from the past, I was able to apply this emotional freedom to my teaching practice. And what a rewarding experience this has been!
I now have an opportunity to practice what I have been preaching as I implement it into my personal life as a mother, the beauty of how it all really works amazes me each day! This lifelong journey continuously inspires me to bring the best version of myself to the table with excitement and a head full of fresh ideas. How can we alter our thought patterns and actions to be better than we were yesterday? It is no secret that this is how we create our reality.
We live most of our lives inside our heads, so why not make that a healthy and nourishing environment? I am now living my dream life, I have now come full circle, and I’m now more than ready for the next challenges life has yet to offer, with a constantly renewed outlook and purpose!
This is where my motivation stems from, my impact on the world, it’s what undoubtedly gets me up and running with vigor each morning! The results that I have produced over the years with my students and their families have been transformational. We are all living proof that unblocking stuck energy and breaking patterns from the past is not only possible but something we need living in the world as it is today.”
