Who are we and what exactly is a “GracePoint”?
We are Karen and Michelle, two entrepreneurs who envision a global network and community of like-minded individuals who are driven to be the fullest, most juicy expression of themselves and who want to leave the world an even better place than when they got here.
Karen is a #1 best-selling author, Human Design Specialist, trainer and professional speaker. She’s been a life and business coach for more than 20 years and has personally coached more than 7,000 people. Karen and her husband are the founders of Sustainability2027, a nonprofit business incubator dedicated to supporting women entrepreneurs and small home-based businesses. Karen’s books include “Understanding Human Design, the New Science of Astrology: Discover Who You Really Are”, “Inside the Body of God, 13 Strategies for Thriving in a New World” and “No Mistakes, How You can Change Adversity into Abundance.”
Michelle is a bestselling author, TEDx speaker, visionary marketer who works with those called to change the consciousness of the planet. She’s a successful business consultant, has had three multi-million dollar holistic businesses and is the host of the podcast, Purpose and Profit. She’s appearing in the documentary film, “Wisdom from Thought Leaders” alongside Sting and the Dalai Lama. Her books include “Marketing Tips for the Holistic Practitioner”, “Two Empty Bedrooms: My Foster Adoption Experience”, “Amazon Author Tips” and she’s produced a documentary file, “Woman as Butterfly, Ann St. John Hawley”.
Even though we are both accomplished thought-leaders, we are most proud of being mothers, wives, sisters and soul sisters to many amazing women around the world. We’ve built successful businesses and still been full-time mothers, always made time for family adventures and room for conscious exploration of our soul’s paths while building six-figure and seven-figure businesses that were an expression of our hearts. Like many of the entrepreneurs we feel honored to serve. We’ve never been driven by money, although we understand deeply the need for a grounded financial approach to personal growth, business and transformation. We do what we do because we feel called to do it. (Believe us, we’ve both tried having “normal” jobs. We’re not very good at ignoring the pounding of our hearts and the seductive calls of our souls…) And we wanted to model for our children that you can have a successful life without compromising your Life Path, Purpose and Passion.
The idea for GracePoint was conceived, nurtured and born after almost a years worth of inspiring dialogue (and a lot of good red wine!) about life, parenthood, aging and aging parents, coaching, business, evolution, consciousness expansion, the future of the planet, the power of the internet, the need for community and connection in a rapidly changing world, the need for intimacy and hugs, unity, passion and joy, energy psychology, parapsychology, astrology, marketing strategies and the importance of just being REAL in a world where it’s sometimes hard to figure out what is authentic… What we both realized during our impassioned conversations (that were based on our combined experience of over 50 years of coaching and consulting) is that transformation…REAL change…doesn’t happen until three key factors are in place:
What we both realized during our impassioned conversations (that were based on our combined experience of over 50 years of coaching and consulting) is that transformation…REAL change…doesn’t happen until three key factors are in place:
1. You have to be aligned with who you really are. If you don’t know who you are and how you operate, whatever you create will be a facade or mask that can crumble in a nanosecond. Failure is rarely a result of lack of effort or resources, but usually a result of someone trying to create something that isn’t authentic…something your parents told you would be a good idea or that you read about somewhere…maybe something you hoped would bring you a ton of money so you could then go do what you really want to do.
With the emerging science of epigenetics, we are learning that our biological heritage, the memories and beliefs of our ancestors as well as the beliefs and consciousness of the people and the world around us make it even harder, especially for super sensitive people, to be yourself.
The Universe is not very fond of fake identities. The Universe wants…NEEDS…you to be yourself.
2. We all have a unique and important purpose on this planet. No one is here by accident. No one is doomed to wonder the globe without a destination, meaning and a reason. Our purposes can have a lot of variability. Some of us have very fixed purposes. Some of us are more fluid and flowy.
The world is what it is today because you are on it. We would be an entirely different planet if you weren’t here.
If you aren’t living and working your purpose, you’re going to feel lost, confused, meaningless and even make yourself physically ill. You are here to do what you came here to do.
3. You have to be intentional. There is only a finite amount that you can create with your sheer will. The force of your will can last you up to about 50 years but after that, the chances of you pushing forward without being met with some kind of huge resistance are small.
We are designed to co-create with the infinite intelligence of the Universe and with each other. In the end, we are crucial parts of a powerful Whole. When you discover that the greatest source of your power is surrender and making a contribution for the greater good of the whole is the most valuable and profitable thing you can do you will unleash impact in a way you could never do just by using your sheer will.
There is a powerful force that you can learn to harness that will amplify all that you create a thousand fold. When you learn this magic formula of letting you and being intentional with your creative power, magic happens. When you line all of these three things up…when you are aligned with who you are and are unabashedly expressing that truth, when you are living a life that is an honest expression of your Life Purpose and when you know how to leverage the creative force of the Universe, transformation, success, profit, health, money, impact, love, power (and oh-so-much-more) happen instantaneously on a quantum level.
We created GracePoint Matrix as a virtual and real-time gathering place where you could come be a part of a thriving community that consciously seeks to experience an individual, collective and global GracePoint.
Here is our understanding and our vision:
The world we live in is amazing, abundant and breathtakingly beautiful. (We do our best to explore the world as often as possible! pictures of us in Puerto Rico here) Our world is facing some giant, potential catalytic, challenges. The challenges of global warming, feeding all of the Earth’s inhabitants, creating real, sustainable peace, abundance and living in a way that allows life to flourish for thousands of years are going to force us to live in a different way than we live now and make a brand new set of choices.
We all carry vital parts of the solutions that can heal the world.
Our world is an expression of who we think we are right now. (Like it or not!) Quantum physics shows us that the world is a mirror of our consciousness. If we don’t like what we see, we have to change our reflection in the mirror.
The only way to do that is to heal yourself first.
The more YOU activate your health, your power, your creativity, your abundance, your lovability, your self-worth, your wisdom…your FULL potential, the more you add the energy of wholeness and peace to the world. R
Right now the world is an expression of the energy of the majority of us put together. If we want to change the world, we have to change the majority and create a shift.
You being YOU…you activating your FULL potential…adds to the energy of shift. When a majority of us reach our full potential, we will create a quantum shift in consciousness on the planet and we’ll begin to fully express the energy required to create a world of sustainable resources and sustainable peace.
When we heal ourselves, we heal the world.
See? You do truly matter and the work you do here is a key part of creating an abundant New World.
Our vision is to help heal the world by helping you align with Who You Really Are, create a life that is a reflection of your Life Purpose, and teach you how to fully activate the quantum field and live with tremendous intention!

So we’ve invited some of the world’s top transformational though-leaders, personal growth and development teachers and business experts to join us in giving you the most up to date, leading-edge information to help you wake up to your magnificence in every way.
