About Teresa Lodato
Founder of Becoming Aware®
I use neuroscience-based coaching and insights to boost performance, increase resilience while forming a deeper awareness and connection between your physical and spiritual self.
Science is a method – a form of observance and inquiry, but up until now it has focused solely upon the material – what you can see, feel, taste, touch and hear. With advances in technology, researchers have observed that the presence of spirituality (from a brain perspective) is real. When you are in touch with your spiritual self and fully integrate it into your life, you develop a thick neocortex aiding your ability to recover from challenges in life. Additionally, having a deeper spiritual life has shown a 75% increase in protection from depression (up to a 90% increase in protection if you are at high risk). Those with a strong spiritual connection are 80% less
likely to develop addiction and have a 62% reduced risk of committing suicide. With growing awareness around mental health and the challenges being faced, we are dying as a human race being shut off from our spiritual selves.
Trauma is a catalyst for growth and struggle can be a moment of awakening. When you know things can’t go on the way they are and must change, you have two choices: carry on as you always have as though nothing has changed, or choose to move through the pain and suffering you are experiencing to align your mind, body AND soul by claiming your birthright as a human being by learning to trust yourself.
An unexpected beginning…
My journey began in 2009 when I developed a rare and serious form of migraine (Hemiplegic Migraine) which ended my 20+ career in financial services. The doctors had no answers. They prescribed medications that were neither effective at ending the pain, nor affecting the root cause of my symptoms.
Along my journey, I discovered powerful secrets to natural healing through the use of the mind-body therapies, but more importantly I learned to listen to my body and completely trust myself. Knowing my limits and when to push boundaries, I grew in confidence and strength as all aspects of myself began working in unison.
Today, my life is more beautiful and fulfilling than it was before my diagnosis. I’ve learned how to set healthy boundaries, improve connection with my body, reconcile my inner and outer voice, raise self awareness and strengthen my intuition.
Why Work With Me?
My journey led me to a deep exploration of therapies. What I learned transformed my life. I studied everything I could about Psychology, Neuroscience, DreamWorking, Reiki, BodyTalk and other traditional and non-traditional modalities. The latest cutting edge research in neuroscience is demonstrating that insight (intuition) is merely deeper and broader awareness, rather than something supernatural.
Everyone has the ability to tap into your inner knowing as well – like a muscle, it requires use and practice to get stronger. My gift of knowing was realized at a young age and throughout my life I have practiced listening to my inner guidance. It has been a blessing, helping me make better heart-centered decisions. I love teaching others to tap into their natural intuition as well.
Today I guide individuals and teams to fully align with their authentic selves, embrace their inner knowing, creating opportunities for breakthroughs which drive bold choices in their personal and professional lives. My science based approach helps to identify mindsets and develop behaviors which lead to effortless outcomes.
My book, Why Aren’t You Listening to Me? outlines a roadmap enabling leaders to speak in ways so others will listen, listen in ways which makes others feel heard, take positive action and achieve extraordinary results.
I’d love to help you uncover your innate gifts and strengths so that you too can unlock your potential.
