Do You Speak UP?

“How Do You Speak Up Fearlessly?”

speakingI’ve been speaking up a lot on Facebook about the recent situation in Indiana where war has pretty much been declared on gay people.

They are trying to instigate a new law there saying that it’s OK for businesses to discriminate against and not serve gay people.

I received two interesting notes: one from someone saying “you must be gay since you are standing up for gay people, and why don’t you shut up!”

The other note was from someone admiring me for speaking up, and how ever did I have the nerve to do it!

The first person had it all wrong. No, I’m not gay (even if I was – so what?). Whether or not I am is not even the issue. No I won’t shut up (!). And no, I don’t put up with bigots, so I un-friended him.


It’s very clear that if businesses are allowed to discriminate against one section of the populace willy-nilly, it won’t be long before it’s OK for them to exclude blacks, latinos, breast-feeding mothers, single women, left-handed cowboys and sandy beach bums. In other words, anyone.

I Remember

Because I remember very clearly what it was like in the 50s and 60s before we fought for black freedom. I was there in that fight, and the fight for abortion, and the fight for women to have bank accounts and to be able to buy a house or just sign a contract without having a husband, as well as the many other fights we have won over the years.

We fought hard to legalize those rights, and to see them erode before my eyes makes me furious and sick to my stomach.

This is wrong, and I won’t stand for it and I won’t shut up. I “have the nerve” to speak up because my passion drives me. I know what we, as a people, will lose if I and others don’t speak up.


Courage, Clarity & Confidence

What happens when you lack courage?

sm-shy-3hYou think about what you’d like to do…but then you just cave in and don’t do it, right?


And then you wonder why you aren’t where you want to be in your life or business.

Opportunities that would allow you more freedom and prosperity flow by you every day, but you either don’t even see them through your veil of fears, or you don’t have the energy, strength or courage to reach out and grab them.

You then kick yourself left-wise from Sunday, and spend precious time wondering why things are going so badly, or why you can’t take your success to the next level.

You might even blame someone or something, thinking or saying it’s their fault.

You end up saying, “next time!” Well … what if there IS no next time?


So the loop goes like this: opportunity > no thanks > self-blame or other-person-blame > next time! > opportunity > no thanks > self-blame or other-person-blame > next time….

Aren’t you tired of that? Wouldn’t you like to end that loop of internal destruction?

It’s pretty simple, really, and I’d like to show you how I do it.


See, you may not know this, but many years ago I was so shy I could barely look people in the eye, much less think clearly enough to form coherent sentences or even speak them loud enough to hear.

If I had an appointment with someone, every moment of my day right up to the meeting was filled with anxiety, fretting and worry – I couldn’t even think about doing anything else.

But I found a way to reverse that 180 degrees, and now people are more likely to tell me I’m full of energy, enthusiasm and inspiration.

I talk to everyone. I even have a radio show! If you’d told me even 10 years ago that I’d be a radio show host, I’d have laughed and declared that that would be impossible, who did you think you were trying to kid?


heart-loveSo tell me: which version of yourself would you prefer – the fearful one or the courageous, confident one?

Did you know? The root word for Courage is Couer – which means Heart! Your courage comes from your lion-heart!

Want to know how to reverse your shyness, worry and lack of confidence?

All the way from little things like invitations to lunch, to big things that would be of great benefit to you, like being able to sell your work or pursue your passion! Here’s your chance to take this thing by the horns and turn it around.

I put together a teleseminar just for you, so you could create clarity, banish lack of courage and transform fear into confidence – forever.



I Posted, “I Need A Hug!” and Got over 100!

hugDo you ask for what you want … and get it?

Last week I had a pretty big upset about something. It ran very deep, and made me feel like I wanted to just pop out of my skin and run away and hide.

But I’m one of the lucky ones! I have a lovely following on facebook – full of supporters, friends, clients and people who have like-ideas. So, I thought, why not ask for a hug?

So I did – and was bowled over by the huge amount of immediate, overwhelmingly loving replies – including a picture of flowers, a video of a sweet manatee, and more.


Only a few years ago, I’d have thought it was better to suffer in silence. You know what I mean – the “I don’t want to burden you with my bummer” kind of thinking.

Truth is, people really DO want to support you, and even if you’re down, they’re most likely not, and are happy to send you good wishes, huggies and kissies and all kinds of uplifting thoughts.

Don’t bother with the ones who don’t really listen but want to tell you what to do, give you cheery, inappropriate bolstering or want you to brush it off. They only hurt you more.

Even if you only know one person who can listen to you and be with you without judgement when you’re in that dark place, that person is worth more than a gold mine. Call that person and say, “hey, I’m in a dark place, can you help me remember who I really am?” They will.

Try it some time when you just can’t lift one more finger to help yourself. You’ll be amazed at the response you get.


I was sooooo very grateful – those posts on facebook really helped me turn my downward spiral into a newer, greater sense of self-respect, self-acceptance, love and peace.

As a coach, it’s what I do all day every day – helping people find the ways that are unique to them that they can use to make their lives better. So it was such a gift to receive all that love.

If you were one of the people who shared your love with me that day,  bless you and thank you!

Remember, I love you!

Aloha –

Wish You Had Someone Who’d Listen to You & Give You Insights, Strategies & Action Steps?

love2That’s me. I’ll absolutely do that for you! I’m really good at it, because I really care about you and want you to succeed – whatever that personally means for you.

And I have this amazing (even to me!) knack of being able to see how you can do things better in your life, emotions, thinking and business so your entire life shifts up notch after notch as we work together.


I had a talk with someone a few years ago that lasted fifteen fast minutes.

In those few minutes, she gave me information that completely transformed my ability to coach effectively, and to make my coaching available at levels I’d never even considered before. Fifteen little minutes!

Imagine spending focused time with someone who cares about you, holds the space of success for you, and who can give you insights and ways to do things better that you’d never have thought of or seen before.


Stop a second and think for a moment. Ask yourself, “how would it be if things really changed for me?”How would it be? Can you see it?

Whether you are an author, coach, speaker, or any other kind of entrepreneur, you know as well as I do that if you don’t see your success, it won’t happen. And – you can see it all day long, but if you don’t get out of the rut you’re in right now and take action, that vision will die on the vine, unfullfilled.

What is it you want?

  • To have more fun?
  • Spend more time with friends & family?
  • Help create peace on the planet?
  • To have more impact?
  • Make a bigger difference?
  • Help more people?
  • Make more money?

I know from first-hand experience that getting an outside viewpoint can shift EVERYthing for you. How long do you want to stay where you are now? How acceptable is that to you?

Your life and business CAN radically change…or stay the same. It’s up to you.


Get coaching with me, one-on-one, for only $125! I invite you to put aside your doubts and take action now.

Register for at least one 1-to-1 session with me so you can get past your risk-taking fear, and step into whatever new level of success you desire – whether on a personal level, or business. At least get started.

Then if you want more, you can do that, If not – not. Besides, you get a savings of $450 – how can you lose?!?

I’m Back! Retiring Ain’t All It’s Cracked Up to Be!

paMany years ago, my dad, who was a sought-after executive recruiter in New York City, retired at the age of 65.

(Yup, he really did wear bow-ties – and tied them himself – none of those cheater clip on things!)

At first, he loved all that time on his hands! He spent hours in his long-neglected wood-working workshop; going sailing; walking around the neighborhood…bugging my mother….

After a few months, he realized he missed the hustle and bustle of the city, his friends in business, and the excitement of meeting new people and placing them in Just Right for Them employment positions.

So he went back to work. At 66.

And then he died. He was 67.

I always wondered what would have happened if he hadn’t retired. I think he’d still be here today – he would be 101 years old!

As you might know I’ve been out of coaching for about 8 months now, although I’ve stepped up and done a few teleclasses now and then (the one on money last week was amazing – thanks to everyone who came!). It just seemed like the right thing to do to refocus my attention on my artwork.

Well, you know how when things don’t Go Right you feel kind of numb inside? That’s how I knew something wasn’t aligned, something wasn’t working, something wasn’t Right. Then the income started falling – that’s always a pretty good indicator of Things aren’t Working!

we-do-itI realized I was missing all the people I usually speak with or teach or coach during my weeks.

I missed you! I got lonely, being all alone in the studio, or all alone at my desk as I posted my work on FB and other online portals!

So, I decided I’d put together some coaching sessions at really, really affordable fees, and post them so I could reconnect with you and get you going where you might feel like you need a boost.

I’ve got some cool teleclasses in the works, but I wanted to get you going with some 1 on 1s first. Just in case you feel stuck, or like you need a boost in time for the holidays, or maybe you’re eager to jump to a higher level of success and need just that one little Something you don’t know quite what it is but that a coach could help you find and explore!

And, I’ve got a series of tools and techniques that help people shift fast to share with you, too, at some point, that will really help you a lot if you’re a coach, speaker or teacher.

I invite you to go HERE
to see which Session Types fit for you!

  • feel stuck, or
  • want to jump to a higher level of success, or
  • are struggling with unwelcome emotions thoughts and habits, or
  • want a half or a full-day Intensive where we master-plan your marketing map, or get your emotional upset handled, or discover and begin to create a new Dream for you….

… you’ll find something just right for you HERE.

1 on 1 Solo Sessions:
I created almost ridiculous enormous savings on 1 on 1s for you – at $125, they are $450 off my regular coaching fees!

1 on 1 Packages of 3:
And packs of 3 sessions for even greater savings.

Believe me, that won’t last long – get yours now while you can!

I may have thought I wanted to retire, too, but I’m choosing to stick around, not croak at 67. I’ll be 99 before I quit this planet, even if my dad’s over there waiting for me!

I look forward to meeting with you once again on the phone, working together in expanding your mind, expanding your business and personal successes! Woohoo!


“Bad Request” Message


Sometimes when I click on a page link or a pay link, I get the message below. Very annoying, and for a long time I had no idea what to do about it!

Then I found out: first, highlight and copy the link. Then, go up to FILE, click on New Private Window, and paste the link into the browser bar. Now you’ll be able to open the link in that window! Yes!



Do You Know How to Use the Secret Mirror?

sm-playIf you have ever felt like you just didn’t have it in you to do something (like marketing your work!), and dithered along believing that you just couldn’t do it, or didn’t want to even try – for months! years! – here’s something that will help.

Recently I was turned on to Dr. Joe Vitale’s Secret Mirror technique. The technique itself has actually been around for many years, but he’s refined it. The way he does it is pretty neat, and gets shifts right away.

I want to turn you onto it, too! And he has a pretty amazing coaching program that is so inexpensive it’s almost a crime.

Time to stop it with those destructive beliefs that destroy your confidence and success!

Sage Magazine Interviews Angela Treat Lyon on Art and the Art of Healing


I’m so happy and pleased and honored to announce that I was interviewed for Sage Magazine about my Art, and the Art of Healing, and how EFT saved my life.

sage-cover-5hThe interview is out on the online ‘shelves’ now, and ready for you to enjoyCLICK HERE.

The interviewer was visiting in Hawaii all the way from Singapore, and called to see if he could interview me! Wow!

We met way last July, and I had no idea  which pix of mine they’d use, so I sent them a bunch – and I’m blown away that they used them all!

For the whole (beautiful) September issue of Sage Magazine, chock full of art go HERE.

Thank you, Sage Magazine!


I Love Low-Key Marketing!

sage magazine 2-pg spread-700

I’m not a hypester or brash self-promo kind of person, so pushing my work has always been hard for me. I mention my latest article HERE because, yes, of course I want you to go see my artwork and read the article…. AND, because it’s a great example of very low-key marketing.

Thai Nguyen, one of Sage Magazine’s writers, emailed me, and asked if he could interview me. I didn’t hardly have to lift a finger!

Since the article came out, through my posts on my Facebook profile and Art pages about the article, I have gotten almost 1000 likes and many wonderful comments and shares, as well as on twitter and my website. Great exposure, soft selling to the max!

How do you do it, too?

Find magazines that are in your niche. Start following them on twitter and Facebook, and make comments on their posts.

Write the editors and ask them what topics they need articles written on for future publications. Build a relationship with them that they will win from as well as you.

Not too long ago, Sage Magazine asked me if they could use one of my paintings (shown above) on an article they had been searching for an appropriate one for, but hadn’t found a suitable one yet.

It was about 6 months from the time I contacted Sage to be interviewed for the new article. Things move fast in the digital world – prepare to be surprised!

The Pleiadian Protocol to Reduce Excess Body Mass

sm-depression-2Have you ever had a long spell of feeling really great, and then, completely out of the blue, one day you wake up almost in panic, or extreme distress?

That’s what happened to me last week, with a very deeply felt personal worry.

Even tapping only went so far to get me any relief. Just allowing the smallest thought about this problem made my heart beat like crazy and my chest feel like I had chains around it that were getting tighter and tighter.

My hands were dripping sweat, and I had this unshakable conviction that if I started crying, I would never stop, ever.

I felt Hulk-sized pile-driver pressure behind my eyes, giving me a massive headache. Massive.

After a full morning of this, I was beside myself, because it was so horrid I didn’t see how I could shift it, much less ride it out.

Yes, I was tapping, doing my usual “something-amazing-is-happening-right-now” conscious thinking – and yet – under it all was this hideous pain.

Yes, I’m an experienced tapper and perspective-shifter and creative reality-shifter.

Rebecca Marina MessengerYes, even those of us who are, still get bowled over by life’s challenges! This is part of the shamanic process we all go through to let go of what isn’t working, and creating something new out of it.

Only the letting go part wasn’t happening for me.

I told my buddy Rebecca Marina Messenger about it, and she suggested I come to her class that she just happened to be teaching that afternoon.

Then she told me the name of it. Great name, I thought to myself…but…


I wasn’t sure it would, since the topic of the class wasn’t on what was specifically going on for me.

But I really trust Rebecca, so I attended anyway. And, sure enough,  within the first five minutes of the first process she took us through, I had the most powerful, most profound shift I’ve ever had. Ever.

(Impatient? CLICK HERE to get it – and use the word ME in the coupon box for a savings!)

Within a fraction of a second of doing the last part of the very first exercise, ALL of the constriction in my chest, the too-fast beating heart, the sweaty palms, the worry and incessant repeating self-talk in my mind, and the intense pressure behind my eyes and massive headache were gone.

Snap-your-finers gone!

Totally. How many words can I use to convey the miracle of it? Utterly, completely, magically gone.

And there had been no tapping, no going over stories, what was wrong with me, no talk about parents, feelings or past events – just *poof* – the entire thing was gone.

It was a good thing I was lying down, because the short, fast process was so powerful that I literally zonked out from it – my conscious mind was suddenly presented with something so completely out of the norm that it couldn’t make it fit within the usual same-old-same-old mindset it was used to holding, and it went into wait-a-minute-while-I-adjust-here-folks mode.
