MARION If you can dream it, you can become it.

That's the message Life Mastery Consultant Amy Walston wants people to understand and embrace in order to make their lives better.

Walston, a native of Marion, is the owner of Empowering You LLC, a life-coaching service she recently started. Her office is located at 1199 Delaware Avenue, Suite 102C in the Corporate Center in Marion. She is also a licensed massage therapist, a profession she has worked in for the past decade. Sheoperates that business out of the same office.

Prior to becoming a massage therapist, Walston worked in the financial services field, but decided to leave that business because she didn't believe she was fulfilling her purpose in life.

"I got into (massage therapy) because I wanted to do something to help people," Walston said. "I was a finance manager and really was not happy with it because I couldn't answer the question, 'Who have I helped.' So, I got into massage therapy and, yes,I help everyone that I work on with my hands, but after all this time, and working on enough people, I realized that a lot of their physical problems come from what's going on inside them.

"You start working on someone and the emotions come out, whether they're stressed out, grieving, or whatever."

It was those types of experiences with her massage therapy clients that led Walston to the next phase of her journey, becoming a life coach.

"I realized that I could help them on another level," she said. "I was just helping physically. Basically, I was just scratching the surface of what a real problem is, but there could be more help, but I didn't know what it was."

Walston's search for answers led her to theLife Mastery Institute (LMI) founded by Mary Morrissey in 2009. Morrissey, according to the LMI website, "is widely considered the worlds foremost expert on dream-building, which is the art and science of transforming your dreams into reality."

According to the LMI website, Morrissey has spent40 years "studying transformational principles, and is the author of two bestselling books, 'No Less Than Greatness'and 'Building Your Field of Dreams,'which became a PBS special."

Walston completed a six-week training course last year to become a certified life mastery consultant. She will complete advanced training in April of this year, she said.

"It's a whole transformational process," Walston said. "The power lies within us because we're spiritual beings, and we're so much more than we even realize we are. We're more than our condition. It's about raising your awareness and bringing out everything that's within you, and help you realize your dreams. It's about helping you design a life that you'd really love to live."

Walston offers life coaching programs and services for individuals and groups. She will conduct workshops and seminars forlarge and small groups, in-house corporate training, and executive and personal retreats. She said she will tailor her presentations to fit the needs of the individuals or groups.

Walston also offers speaking services, ranging from "10-minute talks" and"Lunch and Learn training" to motivational and keynote speeches. She also offers what she calls Vision Workshops.

"The Vision Workshop is a three-hour, motivational workshop," she said. "I have people start dreaming their dream, writing down what they'd love to see for their lives, and teaching some of the principles of the DreamBuilder program. It's fun, interactive, motivational."
