We had the good fortune of connecting with Audrey Hope and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Audrey, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most precious jewel a human being can possess is inner peace from being true to themselves. The gold is to never sell out, to never give your power away and to never waiver from your higher calling. This is not easy to do, it takes courage to face the firing flames of purification, called life. I never imagined that when I started my path that I could find a career that would allow me to be so fully myself, where I could utilize all my gifts and life experiences and be able to make good money from it. It has been a wonderful surprise and it has proven to me that when you commit to becoming your best self and when you decide to heal everything that blocks you life purpose and magic will find you. My business is called, Transformation With Hope . My mission is to help enlighten the world, to inspire a revolution in perception and to heal issues from the deep level of the soul. I will go to whatever level necessary in this life, a past life or the other side. I will work with energy, karma, and soul-contracts to clear the pathway to your highest dream. The goal is to find your “soul wound”, the long ago wound that got re-activated as a young child that keeps repeating over and over again until it is transmuted and like the New Yorker that I am, I will keep the process- simple, real and quick. I redefine success to mean living in the “sovereignty of the self”, this means the freedom to live by the laws and boundaries of self-love and self-care. In this powerful place, you marry yourself first and drop the scorecard and rules of others and the outside world. Instead, you listen to your heart and that still small voice from within. You whisper in surrender to the wind- I am ready for a great life – show me the way! The Universe did this for me, and now I share the healing keys with others. When you unlock the keys to your soul, transformation is possible and life becomes a miracle of free creation.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
In order to transform, one must go beyond the rational mind and the 5 senses and the traditional boundaries of therapy to impact a life. We need to get out of our boxes and the diagnosis’s that keep us addicted to medication and hiding from our real issues, there is no pill to save us. We must investigate instead, higher and deeper to solve problems from the level of the soul. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to answer questions that we really want to know like, why am I here? What is my true purpose? What is my karma? What blocks me from my happiness? Why is this happening? My gift to the world is to offer a spiritual perspective and to align us to the amazing truth that we are so much more than we seem. We are multidimensional, light, beings with power to heal ourselves and the world. Only the secret of who we are has been hidden from us, to keep us divided and enslaved. It is time to receive the manual of how the game of life really works. It is time to understand the spiritual journey so we can know what to expect and stop suffering. Everything serves our higher soul growth and pain is just a wake-up call, an invitation to ascend. My work is a missing piece in the healing pie because a download of the soul story can change everything. For example, with spiritual perspective, drug and alcohol problems can be a gateway to begin the journey to peace. It can be an “initiation by fire”, and the chemicals just got you to the doorway to begin the path. Joseph Campbell says “where you stumble their lies your treasure’ and as a counselor for 2 decades, I see that when on your knees you begin to look up. Heal the soul/heal the addiction, heal the soul/ heal the relationship- we must stop our addiction to story on earth and get to know our deep divine selves. Spiritual soul healing is alchemy, the process where everything dissolves, separates, and unites again but everything gets purified in the process. This is called the “Great Work” because we return from the darkest depths of the soul completely enriched. We rise like phoenix from the ashes, and transform into a new state of being from caterpillar to butterfly. The goal of healing must be a return to the authentic self. We are who we have been waiting for. Like Dorothy who found the answer in her own shoes, like Michelangelo who said the art is already there, you just need to remove the stone, the kingdom of god is within. My aim with everyone is to reset and reboot the computer to zero point so we can live in our divine identity. The goal is to activate the spiritual body, the hidden potential in our DNA and cells, and to turn on our lights. Our spiritual nature and birthright are our enlightenment, which means that we are meant for light. All are invited back into their power.
How did you get to where you are today professionally? Was it easy? If not, How did you overcome the challenges?
I have been asked this question many times and it always makes me laugh, but with tears of emotion. I think of the tough times, the challenges and the tests that came with the path and I think “are you crazy? are you kidding me? Run for your life, go the other direction. Don’t start a spiritual path.” The truth is though, I wouldn’t any other way. On this train of life, the endpoint is freedom, becoming a master of yourself, and connection to the creative source. Life becomes magic. A spiritual path is not easy. As you grow in light, you are met with more challenges. Think of it like going to the gym and needing more weights to firm the muscles. You don’t dance in nirvana on this road, or get to a place where the tests of initiation stop, there is always more. However, you begin to know how “earth school” works, what to expect and you are prepared. Life makes sense. You can stop asking the questions about why things happen to you or why you feel pain. You know that everything is for soul growth, power and raising the volume of your light. The easy part is to know that everything you need will come to your front door and you just watch and embrace what comes and expect it. You realize, pain is a wake-up call. It shows you where to look and what to heal. You can’t run anymore, you can’t hide. There is no more denial, you have to face the lion head on, look him in the eye, and triumph over your fear. It is always worth it. It is about becoming a soldier to life and stop being thrown in the boat by the winds of life. The words, no matter what, are the pillar and the alignment. I am where I am now because I raised the game up to be about the soul. Everything is for your growth and everything happens for the highest good. When you ask for a great life and the truth, when you want more get ready, you will have to walk through fires of purification and bravely and then again. In turn, you will emerge- triumphant! Here are my laws of self-sovereignty that saved me: I vow to never let anyone treat me badly. I vow to never take myself down or abandon myself. I take responsibility for everything I create. I will no longer blame another. I will live in truth and integrity no matter what. A quick track to spiritual path: See everything from a higher perspective. Surrender and decree – I am ready. Watch what flows to you. Stop attachment to your 3D story. Heal everything you can. Clear, protect and align my energy everyday.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Due to the fact that I was committed to a journey of authenticity and healing, I watched for teachers that would flow gracefully into my life. I had the supreme honor to call many spiritual leaders and visionaries of our age my mentors. They challenged me to step into my power, to face my weaknesses and to carry on with my mission no matter what. There are so many people to thank for inspiration. When I came to California from New York, I worked at a clothing store in Santa Monica and through my conversations with customers, I observed what has happened to women. Every woman I met felt that she needed to be fixed, that she was not good enough, skinny enough, or young enough. I was distraught about this and knew I had to do something about it. I connected this lack of self-esteem to the culture, the society, the media and her story in his story. I wanted to create a TV show just to tell women that they were brainwashed. One night, I had a dream and the name “Real Women” came to me. I woke up and wrote the mission statement, a TV show dedicated to creating positive female role models in our media and life, altering perspectives that can transform our world. I was fueled by passion and Real Women TV was seen across the world and won many awards for bringing vital issues to the media. I have to pinch myself because I had the honor to interview so many great voices of our age, Marianne Williamson, Dr. Susan Jeffers, Riane Eisler, Barbara Hand Clow, Rusty Berkus, Judith Orloff, Caroline Myss, and etc. Then there was HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, World Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, associate of Gandhi. Shri Mataji inspired me to know that by restoring the images of womanhood we pay honor to her mothering energy of love and compassion and thus the spiritual balance and survival of the world. (it is stated in the Vedas, “the degree to which a woman is respected is the degree to which a society prospers.”) Shri Mataji’s expressed that the most revolutionary discovery of our age is the collective inner transformation of the human being and everyone is invited to self-realization, connecting to the all-pervading power of divine love. She said that we can end emotional, spiritual, global and economic turmoil by connecting to this divine feminine energy in all of us. Shri Mataji recently passed on, but she remains with me on my mission. Then there is Rolf Gompertz. I met Rolf by divine intervention while searching for advertising for my show. Rolf was the Publicity Director at NBC for 30 years and the Bestselling Author of many books including two on publicity. He invited me over to his house to meet him and that began our lifelong friendship. Rolf’s story is chilling, inspiring and life-changing. Rolf escaped to America from Germany in 1939, at 11 years old, after living through Kristallnacht, ‘The Night of Broken Glass” on November 9, 1938. This was the beginning of Hitlers action toward the “final solution” of the “Jewish problem”. Rolf longed to make sense of the world and he used writing as a vehicle for that search. His book, “Abraham, The Dreamer”, is a dive into what happened to the woman, the high priestess. Men are exposed as the hunters, invaders and warriors who overtook women with their supreme male father gods and we have been trying to right the imbalance ever since. His other books are about faith, love, and hope. Rolf taught us to “bloom where you stand” and that as human-beings we must not forget, but we must transform. We met for lunch for years and I have made “transformation” my word. I feel sad that today he has to watch the world face the same issues and fears as he did in Nazi Germany. You can find Rolf’s book on Amazon and Iuniverse.com. Rolf continues to fuel my spirit. Another mentor of mine is Mairead McCallister, a great healer (who is really an angel), who helped me stay connected to the divine. Also, Norma Milanovich, who forced me to get strong by teaching me that challenges come hard to those who choose the light, but it is worth it. I also have to thank my colleagues at Seasons Rehab in Malibu where I have worked as a Spiritual Counselor/Healer for over 10 years. I thank my team who are so dedicated to helping others, through fires, and viruses and every adversity. After all this time, I am still in awe of them and our work, together.
