I was drawn to Atena after seeing a few video testimonials about her hypnosis sessions in an online private group. Having had a hypnotherapist in the past, I wanted to experience Atenas’ hypnosis session to see if it would be different, and it was. Full disclosure, it was around the time of the first lockdown, I just moved, my business closed, and I was not in a good place. My mind was fogged. I think like many others, we did not know how to process the pandemic.
Petrona: What is your official title?
Atena: I am at heart an entrepreneur with a mission to teach one million souls how to love unconditionally. I am an author, spiritual healer, mindset coach, Youtuber, and one day an aspiring documentary creator.
Petrona: What is your greatest passion? Did that fuel you to get started?
Atena: This is a loaded question for which my answer could take way too long. In the simplest form, my greatest passion is a deep soul connection. And a hundred percent this fuel gets me started on many things in this life.
Petrona: What is the message you wish to convey to the world? In other words, how do you want to be remembered?
Atena: I want to be remembered as the woman who reminded you that your only responsibility in this life is to love yourself unconditionally. I want to be remembered for teaching you how to love yourself unconditionally. When you love yourself unconditionally, you are able to love others as they are meant to, and you release your fears that impede your execution towards a life of excellence.
Petrona: Describe your business, service, or mission.
Atena: The mission of my business is to elevate, inspire, and uplift the vibrational frequency in our World. Currently, I do this through 1-on-1 spiritual coaching, masterclass, workshops, and soon, for the second time, an online course known as Rewire the Soul (starting November 8th for 4 weeks!). In Rewire the Soul, I will teach you how to become heart-centered, how to release fears, past regrets /pains, and ultimately, how to use self-hypnosis to reprogram any part of your subconscious mind that needs to embrace new thinking patterns. We are always creating new neuro-pathways: whether you are hardwiring in happiness and love or the opposite is a matter of choice. Most people don’t understand how to apply this choice. In this critical element, Rewire the Soul will change your life – of that I’m sure.
I know over the course of my work I will touch millions, perhaps even billions of souls. At the heart, I want to TEACH one million souls how to truly love themselves unconditionally. Only then, are you free to be YOU. And when you get to be YOU, you shift frequencies and elevate all of the people around you. Think of the ripple positive impact of this around the World. THAT is my mission.
Petrona: What is your biggest quirk?
Atena: If you ask my life partner, I am a walking quirk ball! I am who I am. I definitely tone it down on social media. One thing I can’t seem to tone down is when I eat food and I’m really into it, you’ll hear “mmm.. mmm mm..mmm” as I eat! I play by play of how much I am enjoying each taste. Also, I’ve been told that when someone says something that I just don’t know how to respond, instead of just saying whatever, I stare back and say “Ohhhhhh”. I’ve been told I make a million and one different facial expressions as I do this. Some of my closest friends have started labeling the ones they recognize!
Petrona: What has been your biggest challenge in business?
Atena: I would say learning to function with a business mindset that is geared towards monetizing. My number one motivator has always been to witness that change in people. That’s my fuel. It brings me levels of joy I cannot always express. BUT, as much as I know money in itself will never be my number one motivator: it provides options. Growing up, I always heard that sentence “money doesn’t buy you happiness.” It’s a messed up concept. First of all, that sentence should be followed by: “and being broke doesn’t buy you shit”. Secondly, it created an awkward nuance that became deeply ingrained in me that I have to choose either happiness or money. Why on earth do we as a society do this? Having money is a critical element in having a successful happy life. The first time I even saw a sentence that said this, I was offended. And then I realized that money rules the world.
Petrona: What’s next for your business or for you?
Atena: Next in line is launching Rewire the Soul on November 8th and in the coming years, I would love to grow my platform, specifically YouTube, and get on stages! Eventually, I would love to write a book – probably going to be called “The Opposite of Thick Skin”, for which I wrote a short Blog about. And way down the line, we shall see with this mission and how I accomplish my target.
Petrona: What advice would give to someone reading this?
Atena: Don’t put off dealing with what does not feel good inside you. Stop waiting for the right time: it does not exist!!! Because that time will either be when you crash or you become ultimately extremely bored with your life. The likelihood of the latter is far less probable than the former as we tend to keep ourselves busy. You got one life to live: be intentional AF, deal with your pain and learn to love you unconditionally… everything else will fall into place.
Petrona: What is your favorite quote?
“Wherever you are, whatever you do, be in love.” Rumi
