About Veronica


 About VeronicaLet me start at the beginning. Several years ago, I experienced a very traumatic, personal life crisis that lasted for several months. Throughout all of it, I kept telling myself that when it was over, everything would be ok again, and things would go back to normal. They never did!

At that time, I felt a deep emptiness inside. There was a hollow place there now, a place that I could no longer fill with the superficial trappings of my life. There was a longing, a deep heartfelt longing to know more, to be more, to do more, and that longing started me on a search, a search for answers to questions I didn’t even know existed yet. It was to be a long journey, sometimes confusing, sometimes isolated, but always life affirming. There were many times when I didn’t think I had the strength in me to go on any longer, and just as many times when I knew I would never be able to give up.

Having experienced this, I was no longer able to exist in the corporate world and decided to take the plunge and venture out on my own. I had always felt that I was an uplifter and that was my gift and my job in the world.

And so I decided to create a vehicle that would make the journey easier for others, at least easier than it had been for me. In 1990 I gave birth to “A Magazine of People and Possibilities”, an inspirational, self-help, holistic publication. People and Possibilities is a FREE magazine paid for through its advertising revenue. It filled a great need in the community and provided a very welcomed place for like minded people to let the world know about the wonderful work they were involved in. I am now proud to celebrate 19 years in print with this publication and 14 years online, opening our door to the rest of the world.

Each print issue is available for download on the website and all of the email addresses and links are live. http://www.peopleandpossibilities.com

(I am currently offering an amazing advertising opportunity for those of you who are interested, in print and online, for one full year, for only $100.00. More information available at the following link: http://www.peopleandpossibilities.com/directory.html

As part of my journey, I later created a full colour inspirational e-book, which was a compilation of all of my inspirational writings over these years. It has been a lifetime in the making, and over 3 years in production, but well worth the wait.

This e-book is the sum total of my spiritual journey. It encompasses the truths I have learned along the way, the insights I have acquired, and the knowledge gained. (More information and sample audios are available at: http://www.insightsandinspirations.com

I feel such joy at being alive at this time on our planet. This is an extraordinary time. The world is changing at an accelerated pace and I know now more profoundly than I have ever known before that we are not alone here. That we have available to us more help than we could ever need to move to places we have not yet been to. Doors are opening and walls are coming down and things are not quite as they seem. Adventures await us if we have the courage to go within and feel. We have help and most importantly we have each other.

I wish you Godspeed on your journey, my dear and precious friends.

Love and blessings, Veronica

    Hi Veronica, thank you for sharing your story. I can relate to your journey, though I don’t feel like telling mine at this moment. I’m not really sure how I’d tell anyone who I am at the moment, there has been too much change.

    Hello Veronica,

    When, a few minutes ago, I was reading your story, I was also trying to remember how I came across you…maybe through “The secret”..but it is not important why..I think in life nothing happens by chance and everything/everyone is there to show us what our job, real job, is in this lifetime. I changed my life completely almost 6 years ago coming to London from Italy and resigning my permanent job over there. Now I know I have to “jump” to another challenging moment and I feel I am lacking in my real aim but I am sure it is there, behind my fears and worries.
    Thank you so much for your emails and all the other important things you have done so far…Blessings and love Rosalba

    Hi Veronica,

    I had the pleasure of discovering you and your magazine today when I went to Community Natural Foods for the first time today (it was a day of firsts!). I read your article and your website and I had to leave a note. My journey was similar to yours – I have spent many years working in lawfirms doing a job that pays the bills but doesn’t make my heart soar. My whole life I have been the person people come to when the needed comfort, someone to listen or someone to support them through a difficult time. No matter when I work, I end up making friends and creating a “community”. Finally, this February I realized my passion and my life purpose and I started my journey as a life coach. I enrolled at Coaching and Leadership International and learned a coaching technique that includes mind, body and spirit. I feel like I have finally come home and I am living my life purpose. Nothing can make me feel such joy and happiness as watching my clients discover their own amazing wisdom and learn to love and appreciate the beautiful spirits that they are. It’s like watching my own child learning to walk and discover life. In the process of coaching, I have also learned how the difficulties in my own life were actually gifts that have hellped me to be of greater service to my clients. The perfection of the Universe is amazing.

    Thank you so much for your work. Thank you also for your interview with my favorite person – Dr. Buscaglia. I have been a huge fan of his for many years and was very saddened by his death but joyous to know that his legacy of love will live on. What an amazing man and an inspiration for all. I look forward to following your work. All the very best!

    Brenda

    Dear Veronica,
    I am sure you are beginning to know how special I think you are. Thank you for sharing your story here on your blog. It touches my heart.

    Isn’t it interesting how pain can develop our greatness within? If there was a way to avoid the pain, I’m sure I would have, but for all the things it has brought out in me, I see that it was all worth the journey. I mean that.

    My story is of childhood pain … pain that caused me to think perhaps way too deeply for a child, but also caused me to seek a love greater than human love. So many times I wanted to see and experience magic for real because I knew that nobody on earth understood my pain. Nobody did. I had to believe in the impossible almost every day, and to be honest, I mucked by most days. However, I managed to keep my bubbly zest for life, a sense of humor, and caring for others … so, yes, that felt like magic. It was a miracle and was (and still is) my gift to share.

    You are so right in saying that, “…we are not alone here. That we have available to us more help than we could ever need to move to places we have not yet been to.”

    It often seems unfair that it has to be fire that refines us, but how else can a diamond find it’s sparkle?

    I love your magazine and all your beautiful writings. I am proud to share and promote your work with my women’s group.

    Blessings always,
    Verna
