What patterns of DisHarmony have you encapsulated from your family by being the Peace Maker?

are you the peacemaker in your family

How many of your families patterns of disharmony have you encapsulated by being the peace maker in your family?


I can remember being a young child and trying to break up a fight between my mother and my brother.  I was constantly trying to keep the peace between them, even in my early adult years.  As I grew into my teenage years, I became the peace maker between my mom and dad to avoid hearing them argue and fight.

I was the peace maker in my family and I learned at a very young age how to play the victim. Playing the victim served me throughout my childhood and early adult life as it it usually led to getting what I wanted.  What I didn’t realize was what that although I usually got what I wanted, it also came with a price.  A price of negative behaviors in which I was creating my life.  As an adult I began to see how the victim behaviors that were so “normal” for me were beginning to ruin relationships with my friends and family and most importantly with myself.

Through my studies in “holistic healing” over the last 15 years, I left the victim behaviors behind and stepped into the power and potency of creating my future.  I’ve discovered what it feels like to THRIVE and truly how fun it is to LIVE.

If your New Years Resolution was to do something different this year, to be something different this year, to explore something different this year, or if you are just ready to break free from the disharmony in your life, than choose today to do something different about it.  Call and schedule a free consultation, or sign up for one of my packages. There is truly no better gift that you can give yourself.

2015 is the year to THRIVE!!  Are you ready?

Shift from Surviving to Thriving in 2015



Are you ready to nurture your body and shift from Surviving to Thriving in 2015?

Then you don’t want to miss our upcoming Access Body Process classes.

In looking back at the last year, it’s hard to believe how much has shifted in just one year. I have to say, it’s more than I ever thought possible and I’m excited to see how it gets better in 2015. I attribute a lot of that change to applying the tools of Access Consciousness in my life and truly living in 10 second increments and asking questions at every turn. In 2014 I attended 3 Foundation and Level I classes, 2 Level 2/3 classes with founder, Gary Douglas, Gary’s Bars class in November and a 3 Day Access Body Consciousness Body Class.  Over the years, I’ve learned how to shift from simply surviving to THRIVING, and my passion is still to share the excitement, the knowledge, the passion and help others who are also choosing more!  For that reason, I will continue to teach as many classes as possible in 2015.

I’ve dedicated 2015 to tuning in to our bodies and I couldn’t think of a better way to kick it off than to start the first weekend with some powerful body process classes.

If you are ready to kick start your year and begin Thriving, then I invite you to come join us!

Energetic Facelift, January 3, 2015 – The Access Consciousness Energetic Facelift™ is an amazing process which can reverse the appearance of aging on the face and can create similar effects throughout the body.  Click here to learn more.

Compensatory Drift and Oldings, February 7, 2015 –

  • Compensatory Drift: This process helps to undo the compensatory drifts that allow the lies of powerlessness in embodiment. Where we drift away from our power and survive only not thrive!
  • Oldings: This process undoes the effects of aging. One does not age, one olds. You can do this on your body parts where you’ve decided it’s too old to do something. Whenever someone tells you “your’re too old to do that” or “you are not old enough to do that”, oldings occur.  Are you ready to let go of all the ways that “you can’t do that” hold you back in your life?  Click here to learn more.

Quote from Level 2/3 November in Australia ~ Vulnerability is the willingness to know that whatever you want in life you can get if you are willing to go get it and do it. Vulnerability is recognizing where you are and not having a judgment that you can’t do it because you don’t have enough money and the willingness to do whatever it takes to get there.

“What would I like to create as my life, and, what do I have to do to get there?”

Blessings of infinite joy and giggles to you,

Michelle, what is it that you do?



I get asked all the time, Michelle what is it you do….in short and probably the most practical way to explain it is, I help people change their life. For some it’s a matter of exploring how to have more in their life, more joy, more relationship, more friendship, more money, or just more of themselves. For others it’s about finding themselves and getting in touch with who they are and what they want to do and yet for others it’s about healing parts of their lives that are still affecting their ability to have a solid relationship, or to find the job they love, or to discover what it is really like to love themselves.

How do I do what I do can be almost as difficult to explain as what I do. I use the tools of Access Consciousness, ThetaHealing and Reiki, along with connection to the spiritual world and I listen to the energy of your body. I hear things that you’ve hidden deep within and never told anyone, I hear the joy of your body along with the sorrow and resentment. I also see and hear the joy, the aliveness and the desire to have more and that’s what inspires me to do what I do. I learned about my ability to listen to the energy in 2004 when I took my first Rieki class. Before then, I have to say I was a complete skeptic. Over the last 10 years I have studied under some great teachers like Sonia Choquette, Gary D. Douglas and Dr. Dain Heer founders of Access Consciousness, Viana Stibal founder of ThetaHealing and I’ve read an abundance of books on metaphysical healing, Feng Shui and healing with crystals, meditation practices and have incorporated much of the work into my daily life.

For the last 3 years, I have dedicated my time to helping people just like you find the more to life, in what ever way that is for you. If you are looking for more in your life, call today and schedule a session.  What do you have to loose?

ONENESS, Do you Desire it?


Oneness to me is the inclusion of everything and everyone and no judgment of anything or anyone.  I am a part of you and you are a part of me. I am one with my body and I am one with the world.

Yet, we try to fit ourselves into some form of definition, mother, daughter, sister, brother, father, engineer, healer, spiritual adviser, plumber, carpenter, caregiver, etc. As if that is going to define who or what we are. We attempt to define what we do as a way to prove to others that we are valuable and worthy or that we fit in and belong.  What would it take for you to just be YOU?  What would it take for you to release the judgments and conclusions about you and your life that your parents, friends and family have placed on you?

What would it take for you to take off the ball and chain of guilt, blame, shame, regret and allow yourself the space to just be.  To  breathe in the sweetness of life or to see the beauty in others, as it’s a reflection of your beauty back to you.

To me oneness feels like space. When I close my eyes and think of oneness and allow myself to feel it, it’s as if my body is in tiny little particles floating around the universe.  To me, it represents infiniteness, and in the space of infiniteness, it opens me up to so much more, more than I can be when I am separate.

Oneness, do you desire it?

Judgment of You

wwit judgment


This past weekend I found myself half way down the rabbit hole of judgment, or the underworld as I see it. The good news, I had the awareness of what I was choosing and I chose ease and joy instead.  What I love about my life now, is that when I have moments of beating myself up for something (judging me) is that I spend very little time in that space. Whereas in my childhood and early adulthood, I would spend days or even weeks in the energy of self judgment until I finally broke down emotionally and had to pick myself up again.  Now I have the awareness of when I am in judgment of myself and I choose something different.   Now I have the awareness of whether to choose to enter the rabbit hole or fall deep within the crevices of the hole.


Do you have the awareness of when you are approaching the rabbit hole?  The feelings of frustration, decisions you’ve made that you think or wish you would have, could have or should have chosen differently;  The anxiety of something coming up that you can’t predict so you are having to prepare for something you don’t know what you are preparing for; the feeling of overwhelm when you sit down to try to figure something out that makes no sense to you so you spend 4 hours accomplishing nothing.    The thoughts, feelings, emotions, energies around all of that is your bodies way of telling you, wake up, your approaching the rabbit hole to the underworld!


When you enter into the rabbit hole of the underworld (judgment) you stop the flow of energy for everything you are working to accomplish.  When you are in judgment of  you, you focus on what you perceive to be the wrongness of you.  Now I ask, are you a wrongness?  Is there any part of you that is a wrongness?  What if everything about you is a rightness of you?  Do you believe it?  I am here to tell you it is absolutely true! There is not one thing about YOU that is a wrongness.

What if I told you that if you judge yourself 20% less today than you did yesterday, you would experience more joy, more love, more fun, more giggles.  Would you choose it?

It’s time to come out of the rabbit hole and begin loving YOU for YOU, accepting YOU for YOU and living YOUR life for YOU, for you are an amazing gift to this world and the world needs you to show up now.  Are you ready to come out of the judgment of you and begin living life and living in the joy, fun and the giggles of the universe?  Will you choose it?


If you are ready to chose it, but don’t know where to begin, or you’ve tried before and fell back into the same old pattern, then maybe it’s time to schedule some time with me.  Click here to schedule a session so we can break down the barriers and get you on the road to living the amazing life you are meant to live.



Transformational Coach, Teacher and Speaker

Michelle Estes Transformational Coach, Teacher and Speaker


Do you listen to it?

I grew up in a household where intuition, mystical ways, psychics and such were not looked upon favorably. In fact, I grew up fearing people who claimed to have these gifts, for I only knew what I had been taught. So in 2002 when I decided to attend a Reiki training, which catapulted me into the world of holistic healing and coaching, it is safe to say that my parents and extended family didn’t support my new found passion.

As I look back on it, had I not known how to follow my own knowing that there was something more to life, I would have let them continue to influence me.  But there was something inside me that was curious to know more. Today, 14 years later, I rely on my intuition first and foremost. I listen to how my body responds when I am asked if I would like to attend a workshop, a friends house for dinner or a movie.  I pause for a few minutes and really listen to what I would like to do.  When you clear away the secret contracts, hidden agendas, and all the cobwebs that keep you living your life for everyone else but you, you can begin listening to your own intuition, to your own true feelings and learn your true yes and no.

My desire is to help you clear those cobwebs and forge into living YOUR truth. Take away all the judgments, conclusions, decisions that you’ve made about you, your family, your life, and experience something different.  Are you ready to venture into the gift you truly be? If yes, call and schedule an appointment today. I look forward to hearing from you.

Allowance and Change

great change is possible if you choose it

I remember when I was younger, September was a time when we put all the finishing touches on our harvest, everything from the hay fields, bringing in and stacking the straw bales, grinding up the oats and barley and harvesting the last of our crops from the garden. For in Alaska, where I grew up, we never knew when the first snow would fall. Although, I didn’t enjoy the seasonal change in Alaska, as it meant we had unpredictable cold weather and snow on the horizon, there was something inside me that also gave me permission to slow down and relax a little more.

Now living in California, I love experiencing the change of weather and this year I am so much more aware of my body and I am loving the cooler evenings and excited for cooler day time temperatures to show up. For Cathi and I, this year has been a time of change. We have experienced so much more than we ever thought possible. For example, we out grew our office space and transitioned to our new studio, A Place of Peace, we have traveled to Hawaii, Seattle, Puerto Rico, Denver and have plans for Las Vegas, and New Mexico by year end. None of them were even in our awareness this year or even a possibility, but when we began living in the question, that’s what showed up. There is a sense of excitement as we live in the energy of what else is possible and the knowing that something more is going to show up.  It’s almost as if we live every day with the childlike excitement of Christmas for we know that what we are generating and creating today is going to change what happens tomorrow and the day after. We now live in the awareness that awareness brings choice, which brings more awareness, which brings more choice and the cycle continues. How exciting is this and what could it change in your life?


What could I Choose


When I ask people about their willingness to change it is interesting to see how their body reacts to what comes out of their mouth. For it is often times not in sync with what the person is saying.  In fact, most often, the body is in total resistence to change and I can feel this energetic barrier that goes up. The good news is that it can be easily changed if you choose it.
Join me for a one on one session and let’s work on dropping the barriers that are stopping you from enjoying the change that is possible.  Call today and schedule your appointment. Together were going to break down the barriers you’ve built up for so long that have not allowed the life you’ve been dreaming of. I’m going to give you the tools to see your roadblocks and hop right over them.  I have new individual session packages available, click here to learn more.

Or, join me for one of my upcoming classes.  Click here to see what’s on the schedule for September and October.

I will also be adding some Access Consciousness Body process day classes to the calendar in October, how does it get better than that? 

What would it take for you to be YOU?

what would it take for you to be  you
I ran into an old acquaintance this evening at the grocery store. When I approached to say hello, she became so embarrassed because she didn’t feel that she was presentable. It was obvious she just ran to the grocery store to grab a few things.  I kept the conversation short as I could see that she was very uncomfortable.
When I turned to walk a way it was painful for me as I was very aware that the worthiness of this individual to have  conversation or be welcoming and friendly as they usually are is based on how they perceive how they look.  No judgment here, just my interesting point of view. I found myself sending her an abundance of unconditional love.
For those of you who know me, my work is to help people stand empowered in their body, mind and spirit no matter what you wear, whether your hair is done or make-up on.  It’s about letting your natural raw beauty shine no matter what!  Don’t let anybody take that away from you.  Blessings to you.
What would it take for you to be YOU no matter what? Your spirit shines through it all!
