EMBOLDENED HEART online global training academy is a portal of education, sharing and personal transformation for all who desire a bigger, brighter, more grace-filled, purposeful and joyful life…

Malinda has developed an inspired energetic approach that anyone can learn to use to create more health, wellness, wholeness and happiness and connection with life, with others, with the world at large because ” You are your own Guru”!  Malinda is but a guide to help you tap into the information,  answers, inspiration, and wisdom you are carrying within yourself…

Malinda was her own first client…she has a firm belief that she can’t expect anyone to learn, do, or use any process until she has experienced positive change with it first.  That’s a promise she makes to everyone she touches.

This new approach to life balance and wellness did not show up until she really needed it. Like so many others, Malinda’s childhood was no cakewalk…and there were some pretty tough experiences that she had to go through as a teenager and young mother. She was tenacious in her desire to learn and grow. She became successful in business, but it came at a cost…After years of working long, stress-filled hours in the world of marketing and finance as an international consultant, Malinda experienced burnout and serious health challenges. This got her full attention…

Desperately seeking answers, she discovered and began using special energetic health approaches which changed her life for the better.  She immersed herself in learning more about these amazing wellness tools. She opened up to learning innovative new methods,  as well as ancient practices. She received training in several powerful energetic healing systems, in order to help others get the same or even better results. She has enormous passion and enthusiasm for her mission, inspiring and now teaching others to use life-changing energy approaches to transform health, emotional, financial and relationship issues. These energetic approaches work gently and effectively to balance and restore health and wellness…supporting a person to feel relaxed, grounded and stronger, thus paving the way for more peace of mind, more happiness and enjoyment of life on all levels.

Malinda hosts podcasts, online classes, and teleseminar events. She also interviews visionaries, authors, musicians, teachers, healers and “way-showers”  so as to share their gifts and brilliance in service to humanity and Mother Earth. She has a Blog Talk Radio program focusing on the “Energy of Everything”.   She is the enthusiastic leader of a Meditation and Wellness Meetup Group with over 460 members in her home community of Hot Springs Village, Arkansas.

She is available for individual sessions in Transformation Hypnotherapy, Wellness Coaching,  Life Coaching, Emotion Code and Body Code Healing Sessions. She is available for speaking engagements and would be honored and delighted to share her energy and enthusiasm with you.

Malinda Explains:

 “Emboldened Heart – what does it mean?” A dear friend who happens to be a bit of a skeptic about all things considered energy-transformational (some call it “Woo Woo”) recently viewed my website at www.emboldenedheart.com

I told her that my business focus was on heart-based living, and she asked me a really great question. She said, “What’s that mean”?  I told her it meant that everyone should consider their heart in making any significant life decision, rather than relying strictly on brain logic and critical thinking. In fact, it’s been scientifically proven that our heart actually has it’s own intelligence and has measurable waves which are actually much stronger, with much more reach and impact than brainwaves!

My friend helped me  to realize that I needed to have a more expanded, yet understandable,  definition for those questioners and skeptics I would surely encounter out there while promoting my events, my business, and my mission. So I thought about it, pondered, contemplated…then looked it up in the dictionary…and Yep! I was right on point…

So here goes:

The actual definition of the word “EMBOLDEN” is:

Thesaurus Legend:  Synonyms Related Words Antonyms
Verb 1. embolden – give encouragement to

buck uptake heart – gain courage
encourage – inspire with confidence; give hope or courage to


verb encouragecheerstirstrengthen, stimulatereassure, animaterousehearteninvigorate, make brave, give courage, vitalizeinspirit

Okay, so this is exactly what I’m after here! I want to ENCOURAGE, STRENGTHEN, REASSURE, ROUSE, ANIMATE, INSPIRE, HEARTEN, STIR, CHEER AND VITALIZE  my listeners and students, my loved ones and my clients…..

I do have the absolute right words for my passion and focus – Yes!

I’m very grateful and thankful for those of you who join me in this mission! CHOOSE YOURSELF, CHOOSE YOUR HEART, CHOOSE YOUR JOY!
