CATALYST FOR THE BEYOND ABUSE MOVEMENT, AUTHOR, CHANGE AGENT AND INTERNATIONAL FACILITATOR
I’ve been attending Access Consciousness courses and integrating the tools in to my life for the past 7 years. It’s a ‘practice’ that attracts all sorts of people from around the world. A few years ago I met Lisa at an Access course and loved her bubbly brightness. It is such a joy and honour to share this interview with you. If you’ve struggled with any sort of abuse, Lisa is worth getting in touch with. Her presence and kindness is a gift.
I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT … creation! While being in a space of communion physically and energetically with the universe and every molecule in it, I am able to be an energy of creation and generation unlike any other. This fills my soul and allows me to live every day radically and orgasmically alive!
I RELAX BY … sitting in a warm bath filled with mustard seed, salts, oils … then a robe, and quietness.
I LIKE TO … move people beyond their abuse and false limitations. There is such beauty in being with someone, acknowledging the brilliance of them, and then facilitating their movement beyond abuse, beyond anything.
I THINK BEAUTY IS … when someone is joyful in their body, with their being, and loving themselves … it emanates from their skin, eyes, and body.
MY FAVOURITE BEAUTY TREATMENT THAT LEAVES ME LOOKING AND FEELING NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL IS … body work, massage, lots of oils, facials, reflexology … sauna … sweat it all out.
MY NUMBER ONE BEAUTY TIP IS … love yourself and be kind when you look in the mirror and say beautiful kind words to yourself no matter what.
WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PEARL OF WISDOM THAT YOU WISH YOU COULD BROADCAST TO THE WORLD? Drop your barriers, be vulnerable, share from your heart, and be real.
WHAT IS IT INSPIRES YOU TO DO WHAT YOU DO? Freeing people beyond their limitations. What if everyone could know, receive, and perceive their greatness? What if then, they could chooses it no matter what?
Dr. Lisa Cooney is a world leading authority on thriving after childhood sexual abuse. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, certified Access Consciousness Facilitator, and Master Theta Healer, she has supported thousands of people over the past 20 years in living beyond their childhood sexual abuse to create infinite possibilities for themselves and a life they truly enjoy living.
Dr. Lisa shares: “the effects of abuse can show up in every area of your life: your health, relationships, finances, career. It is pervasive. When abuse owns you, it constricts and limits what you can create in your life. You feel locked in an invisible cage that you can’t find the key for.”
Dr. Lisa speaks from experience.
“I grew up in a very violent household. I was abused sexually, physically, and emotionally, from the time I was a baby and even into my 20’s. I felt guilty, helpless, and was in terror most of the time. At a young age, I vividly remember praying and committing to do anything it took to escape the prison I was in, and create a new life for myself.
“And that is what I’ve done. I’ve created a life for myself that is beyond anything I ever imagined. The abuse is no longer in charge; I am. I live in a beautiful home in Marin County, California. I have intimate, nurturing and supportive relationships with friends and loved ones. I am healthy, vibrant, and strong. I have a thriving international business. I have thousands of clients who rave about the results they get from working with me. I’ve been invited by Voice America to deliver a radio show about healing from Childhood Sexual Abuse.
“I’m living my dream life. I travel for work and pleasure internationally. I deliver workshops in Europe, Australia and beyond. It was always a dream of mine to teach in Hawaii and I just led a retreat on Maui, where we swam with dolphins and spotted whales. I’m happier and settled in myself and in my life. I feel joyful, light, and free.
“I know freedom like this is possible now. That is why I’ve committed my life to this work: to help others get free from the prison of abuse and create a generative and expansive life for themselves.”
Dr Lisa Cooney has published chapters in four life changing compilation books: ‘The Energy of Happiness’, ‘The Energy of Receiving’, ‘The Energy of Expansion’, and ‘The Energy of Healing’. She is also the author of the upcoming books: “Kick Abuse in the Caboose” and “When Did You Become A Slave To Abuse? Getting Free in a New Way,”
Dr. Lisa’s clients come to her seeking core healing. They end up feeling safe, heard, and powerfully guided in a deep personal transformation. Her clients not only heal from their childhood sexual abuse, they move beyond that to create meaningful, joyful, and successful lives.
