Conscious Uncoupling Coach Viewpoint: Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin

Posted by on Dec 15, 2016 in Calling in "The One", Conscious Uncoupling, Transformation | 0 comments

Conscious Uncoupling Transforming HeartbreakWhen Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin separated, they announced the news on Paltrow’s website GOOP in a post called “Conscious Uncoupling.” They stated: “We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate.”

As a Master Conscious Uncoupling Coach, who has also experienced the process that was created by Katherine Woodward Thomas, I can attest to the power of personal and relationship transformation available from this course.

At the same time, the process assists us to move through the heartbreak of divorce with grace, integrity, compassion, self-growth and true healing.

I look forward to contributing to the process of Conscious Uncoupling becoming the norm. I am an advocate for social awareness to grow and evolve toward more and more integrity, compassion and love, especially when our lives are shattered by the heartbreak of divorce.

Client Experience about Conscious Uncoupling Coaching with Marilyn:

“My experience with Marilyn Hager as a coach in the Conscious Uncoupling course was magical and healing.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Conscious Uncoupling Five Week Process

What will I learn?  You will learn how to heal your heartbreak as you overcome the challenges of the inevitable disappointment of heartbreak. Our coaching partnership, while highly informative, is primarily transformative in nature. You will have the opportunity not just to learn about the main obstacles to the experience and expression of love, but to actually discover and gain tremendous clarity about what your specific obstacles have been. You will be taught how to identify and release the patterns, core beliefs and incompletions that have been preventing love from taking root in your life. And you will be given powerful tools to cause the future you desire.

Why should I be personally coached as opposed to just listen to the audios? Studies show that people are most successful at creating change in their lives when they exchange ideas with expert mentors. Not only do I  have 40 years of experience in transformative education, but I have undergone the Conscious Uncoupling process myself and have personally mentored hundreds of people.

As your guide on this journey, I will create a profound space of healing, transformation, inspiration and encouragement as I personally midwife you through the Conscious Uncoupling course, skillfully navigating territory that might prove challenging when engaged alone. Also, I have been trained in new practices that have been developed since the program was launched that create even deeper access to embodying the principles of the course, and I will share these practices with you in a way that relates to your specific needs and experience.

Can I really heal from heartbreak in just 5 weeks? Many people do heal from heartbreak within this relatively short period of time. However, the real goal is to not only heal, but to prepare you so that you never have to repeat that same dynamics again, and for most people, that can certainly be accomplished in 5 weeks.

If all of the press about Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin has peaked your curiosity, I look forward to speaking with you further…

Hugging and Touching: Miracle Medicine (and Fun, too) Marilyn Hager, Transform Touch

Posted by on Nov 22, 2016 in Calling in "The One", Transform Touch | 0 comments

Hugging and touching holiday greetings from Marilyn Hager, Transformative Coach and bodyworker!

My husband and I were in NJ with his family for the Thanksgiving holiday a few years ago. After sharing a spontaneous hug with Dad, he turned and fumbled through some papers on his desk and handed me this little article:

“Experts say hugging is a miracle medicine that can relieve physical and emotional problems. Psychiatrists are convinced that hugs and personal touch have astounding therapeutic effects. Researchers have found when a person is touched, the amount of hemoglobin in their blood increases significantly. Hemoglobin is part of the blood that carries vital supplies of oxygen to all organs of the body, toning up the whole body, helping to prevent disease and speeding recovery from illness. It has been found that people who are hugged or touched often stop taking medication to fall asleep, it eases stress and tension in today’s troubled time. So go out and hug someone today…we will all be the richer for it while enjoying the fun of hugging.”

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday if you are in the US and celebrate such things!

Feminine Power Heroine’s Journey in Zion with Coach Marilyn Hager: Angel’s Landing

Posted by on Sep 8, 2016 in Sacred Journeys | 0 comments

Angel'sLandingDavidWestCard72DSlabeled2I want to share a very amazing story about something that happened while we were on the Feminine Power Heroine’s Journey in Zion June 21st-29th. What happened illustrates the force of all three Empowered Feminine Power Centers in alignment with truth…

The Feminine Power lesson that we were focusing on the day that this story took place was Power Center Two and having “faith in the goodness of life.” This “having of faith” is something that I have whole-heartedly and deeply desired to believe, but coming from a childhood that was literally “not safe,” I have sometimes struggled to “know” in every fiber of my being. My intention for the journey was to break-up anything that might be in the way of my ability to give and receive love in really healthy ways. This story also shows the organic power of our relationships with others…

So, here’s what happened:

We were about 3/4 way through the week of our journey when we took our threshold hike, up to Angel’s Landing: 2.5 miles up and 2.5 miles down, climbing 1,000 ft. from bottom to top and descending 1,000 ft from top to bottom, the middle .5 mile being very difficult both up and down.

Toggle to Read Entire Article. To Comment, click on 'Read More' below

I honestly wasn’t sure I would even attempt that final ascent before I got there, but the 2 previous miles had been so rewarding that I was inspired and “on fire” when it came time to step forward. I had walked those incredibly beautiful and breathtaking 2 previous miles with Patricia, a very powerful 69-year-old woman, and Feminine Power coaching client who I worked deeply with the previous year and who has since become a very dear friend and evolutionary partner. She has knee issues and the heat was getting to her, but she was absolutely inspiring and incredibly attuned with her inner strength as I extended support and love to her with every step going up.

Through her empowered attunement, Patricia recognized her limits and decided to stop under a tree on Scout’s Lookout, the first pinnacle before Angel’s Landing, with a gorgeous view of the looming peaks and valleys all around us, to wait for us to return from the final ascent to the top-most pinnacle.

MPAngelsLandingAscent72The hike up to Angel’s Landing required that in many places, one hold onto chains that are bolted to the side of the wall with a sheer cliff on the outer edge of a sometimes 6” wide walkway. If one were to fall, that would be “It.” So, ‘I’m Not Safe” was definitely in my face… This required lots of holding and containing fear, extreme focus on the places to put my feet and hands and great surrender to the strength of my nearly 60-year-old body that I spent months conditioning for this very event. Every once in a while, the grace of the Great Mother would give us a moment of reprieve and the path would widen enough to stop and take a breath. The ascent was slow, but steady, even though sometimes my fearful legs were not the most steady part of my body.

groupAscentAngel'sLanding72We were all so ecstatic when we reached the top!!! Sunni, our Priestess Elder, a 73-year-old sister sojourner who experienced a really challenging time making it was deeply supported by amazing 58-year-old Carla, who, in her deepest desire to be of service, extended her training as a Yoga teacher for the elderly. They were so extremely overjoyed as the top of their heads peeked over that final ledge and their sparkling eyes danced as they met ours. What a testament to the power of the feminine, the power of supporting each other and to the power of relatedness we all were!

So all of this, in and of itself, would have made for quite the inspiring story, but what happened next completely blew my mind and shifted my very essence of “knowing!”

We sat on top of that landing for about 45 minutes, taking in the incredible view and feeling the bonded awareness of not only our group, but of the 75 or so others on top of that landing who had also made the same efforts and had tackled the same fears that we had.

When we finally started to make our way down, I was feeling so happy and in love with everyone and all of life. After the first set of chains, we came upon our first widened pathway and just before I stepped upon the flattened surface, I noticed a woman standing against the wall, looking tired, forlorn and despondent.

I reached out to her with my energy and said with my voice, “Sweetheart, you are so amazing…[planning to finish with, “look at how far you have gotten, the end is just ahead!”]… but, because I had taken my attention away from my own center, and what my feet were doing, my left foot slipped on the side of a slightly protruding rock on the flat area and slid into sand… my left ankle buckled, foot twisting onto its side and popped as I went straight down to my knees. This was quite shocking and I immediately knew it was serious…as we quickly pulled off my shoe and sock, a 3 inch blue egg extended under the surface of my skin on the top of my foot just below my ankle.

…before I could utter a word, a legion of angels, strangers who I had not noticed were even with me, flocked around as the perfect “others” to support me through this event. The young man, Johnny, who had been walking right ahead of me reached into his backpack and pulled out some ankle wrapping tape and started activating an emergency ice bag. (Turns out he lives in the same valley that I do in Colorado.)

The young man, Kyle, who “happened” to be walking behind me was the medic for a Division 1 Women’s soccer team, also from Colorado. He tested for a break and then determined it was just a torn ligament; “Phew!” He proceeded to tape my ankle so that I had an instant professional cast. Behind him was a friend of his, Connor, a young fireman, who insisted upon staying with me for the treacherous hike down the .5 miles to Scout’s Lookout. Emily, quietly held a powerful feminine presence as we made our ways down…

Prem, my co-facilitator on the Journey, pictured with me above along the narrow pathway, gently held my foot and sent her comforting method of energy healing, then stayed behind to help the other half of the group down the rest of the hike.

… Had the “goodness of life” not lined up with the extended way I was being and all of those others had not been also attuned on a deeper level, this would probably have meant a very dangerous, dramatic, expensive and painful helicopter rescue off of the side of the peak…

As it went, we were all so grateful for the expression of healthy divine masculine that was all around us! I was so focused on where I needed to place my hands and feet to maneuver my way down, it was better not to be touched by anyone else, but that they were “there’ for me. How it all happened, I didn’t even notice the edges and I flew down that path on the sturdy arms that I had worked so diligently to condition for the journey…

When we returned to Scout’s Landing, Patricia was there with her big smile and loving arms. She and another joy-filled, loving and amazing sister sojourner, Debi, supported me for the final 2 miles back down to the trail head, guide being guided, supporter being supported…giving and receiving love as we made our ways home.

“Angel’s Landing,” what an apt name for the incident that activated every fiber of my being to “know” that “it is safe to trust in the goodness of life” and that this is the key to my “ability to give and receive love” at every turn and in every moment of my life…

The Effects of Feminine Power on Our Marriages: Feminine Power Coach Marilyn Hager

Posted by on Aug 10, 2016 in Feminine Power | 3 comments

Feminine Power Coach Marilyn Hager AdlemanThe effects of Feminine Power on our marriages can result in very positive outcomes.  At first glance, the idea of feminine power can be threatening to a marriage. The result, though, is a beautiful balance that increases the health and well-being of both partners. I was recently asked for guidance from one of my clients who was feeling concerns about her marriage—mostly needs that were unmet and ways that she realized she had ignored things in the past.

I well understood this concern about the relationship shake-up. This was also one of my own challenges early-on in embracing this body of work. I really loved my husband and didn’t want to sacrifice our connection for my awakening evolution. I worried that I would grow beyond him, and fortunately, he stepped-up in a really awesome way.

I was so happy to realize that, in order to change my outer world, I must take 100% responsibility for who I was being for myself. Then, I saw that shift being mirrored back to me in all of my relationships. My partner is my biggest mirror because of our level of intimacy: physically, emotionally and spiritually.

It was really helpful to our relationship to have my beloved start speaking through the same vocabulary and filtering everything through the same lenses that we use in this work.

I wonder, do you think your partner would be open to understanding the structures of life from the Feminine Power perspective if we didn’t call it Feminine? Because we are basically talking about balance: using our masculine qualities when we need to be organized to build a structure and using our feminine through our creative thought and inspiration to the overall vision and artistic details.

My husband was very relieved when I explained it all to him in this way and we have now both become much more balanced as individuals and our relationship echoes the same balance of power and inspiration.

Feminine Power Heroine’s Journey in Zion with Coach Marilyn Hager: Angel’s Landing

Posted by on Jun 28, 2013 in Feminine Power | 0 comments

I want to share a powerful awakening for me, an amazing story about something that happened while we were on the Feminine Power Heroine’s Journey in Zion: Angel’s Landing, June 21-29th, 2013, that illustrates the exquisite force of all three Power Bases, foundational in Feminine Power, when they work in alignment with truth…

The Feminine Power lesson that we were focusing on the day that this story took place was Power Center #2 and having “faith in the goodness of life.” This “having of faith” is something that I have whole-heartedly and deeply desired to believe. However, I came from a childhood that was literally “not safe.” I have sometimes struggled to “know” this faith in every fiber of my being. My intention for the journey was to break-up anything in the way of my ability to give and receive love in really healthy ways. This story also shows the organic power of our relationships with others…

How this Feminine Power Heroine’s Journey Unfolded:

We were about 3/4 way through the week of our journey when we took our threshold hike.  Angel’s Landing is 2.5 miles up and 2.5 miles down. It requires climbing 1,000 ft. from bottom to top and descending 1,000 ft from top to bottom. The middle .5 mile is very difficult both up and down.

I honestly wasn’t sure I would even attempt that final ascent before I got there. However, the 2 previous miles had been so rewarding that I was inspired and “on fire” when it came time to step forward. I had walked those incredibly beautiful and breathtaking 2 previous miles with Patricia, a very powerful 69-year-old woman. Patricia was a Feminine Power coaching client who I worked deeply with the previous year. She has since become a very dear friend and evolutionary partner. Patricia has knee issues and the heat was wilting her body. But her spirit was absolutely inspiring and she was incredibly attuned with her inner strength as I extended support and love to her with every step going up.

Through her empowered attunement, Patricia recognized her limits and decided to stop her ascent and sit under a tree on Scout’s Lookout. Scout’s Lookout is first pinnacle before Angel’s Landing, with a gorgeous view of the looming peaks and valleys all around us.

Making the Final Ascent

The hike up to Angel’s Landing required that, in many places, one hold onto chains that are bolted to the side of the wall with a sheer cliff on the outer edge of a sometimes 6” wide walkway. If one were to fall, that would be “It.” So, ‘I’m Not Safe” was definitely in my face… This required lots of holding and containing of the fear, extreme focus on the places to put my feet and hands and great surrender to the strength of my nearly 60-year-old body that I spent months conditioning for this very event. Every once in a while, the grace of the Great Mother would give us a moment of reprieve and the path would widen enough to stop and take a breath. The ascent was slow, but steady, even though sometimes my fearful legs were not the most steady part of my body.

We were all ecstatic when we reached the top!!! Sunni, our Priestess Elder, a 73-year-old sister sojourner experienced a really challenging time making it. Luckily, Sunni was deeply supported by amazing 58-year-old Carla, who, in her deepest desire to be of service, extended her training as a Yoga teacher for the elderly. They were so extremely overjoyed as the top as their heads peeked over that final ledge and their sparkling eyes danced as they met ours. What a testament to the power of the feminine, the power of supporting each other and to the power of relatedness we all were!

So all of this, in and of itself, would have made for quite the inspiring story, but what happened next completely blew my mind and shifted my very essence of “knowing!”

We sat on top of that landing for about 45 minutes, taking in the incredible view and feeling the bonded awareness of not only our group, but of the 75 or so others on top of that landing who had also made the same efforts and had tackled the same fears that we had.

My Life-Altering Experience

When we finally started to make our way down, I was feeling very happy and in love with everyone and all of life. After the first set of chains, we came upon our first widened pathway. As I stepped upon the flattened surface, I noticed a woman standing against the wall, looking tired, forlorn and despondent.

Healthy Divine Masculine Support

As it went, we were all so grateful for the expression of healthy divine masculine that was all around us! I was so focused on where I needed to place my hands and feet to maneuver my way down, it was better not to be touched by anyone else, but that they were “there’ for me.
