About Penny Garnett - A
motivational speaker and life skill coach.
Penny’s teachings are from her own lessons
of self-discovery as she surrendered and supported her husband
in his dying process. After he died, those lessons continued
as she began the courageous journey of creating, not just a
life, but a wonderful life full of realized dreams.
When doctors said there was little they
could do for his cancer, her first reaction was shock and
fear at the thought of loosing her best friend. Her husband’s
response was, “I
wonder how I’ve contributed to bringing this on."
He began to open to an expansive sense of spirituality and
focused on his internal energy, his inner power, and creative
learned to use visualization and meditation. He began taking
better care of himself by setting boundaries with people and
discovering what brought him joy.
His prognosis had been five years if
any treatment could be found to slow the cancer down. He extended
his life for years and seven of those years there was no treatment
doctors were in awe and called it a miracle. The real
feat was that peace, acceptance, and great joy replaced the
fear he once had. Much later after he died, Penny moved into
such a place as she processed her own grief. He had shown
her that we could create something wonderful for ourselves
despite our circumstances.
During the last two months as they shared this dying experience,
consciously participating day by day, Penny felt as though
her heart was expanding like a balloon full of love, an indescribable
love that comes with surrender to what is and living in the
In marked contrast to that, after he
died she found herself in her darkest hours and it was a
place of terror. She
had just lost her great love and friend of thirty-eight years. At
the same time, there were dramatic changes in her finances
and the loss of support from a child who refused to have a
relationship with her. In her grief and fear she found
herself on the living room floor sobbing for hours each day. During
these early months she made three major decisions:
- Not to busy herself
and escape, but to feel all the grief and allow it to move
up and out of her body, knowing that as scary as things
seemed there is a way out.
- To open her heart
to the belief that it is possible to have another deeply
loving and fulfilling relationship.
- That although her
life would be different now, she has everything it takes
to create a wonderful life of connectedness, direction,
empowerment, and good health.
She learned to tap into her own inner
essence discovering the joy of living again and of creating
what she thought were impossible dreams. She now provides
others the tools for looking within and finding their own
inner power where they can understand who they are, magnificent
spirits. She teaches them that
in connecting to their sacred space of wisdom and guidance
deep within, they can create a life they love.
She shows them how to move through their
lessons and pain more easily and return to a place of peace
and happiness. She
encourages them to choose the thoughts that make them feel
good and use that energy to draw people, places, and circumstances
that bring fulfillment and abundance. She helps them
to open themselves to the potential that they have everything
it takes to create a wonderful life.
She asks them to give themselves permission
to be who they are in the moment and to move beyond the stress
and busyness of today’s accelerated living style into
a calmer, more balanced life of abundance and empowerment.
