17. Stacy Harmer- Awakening to Divine Greatness through Healing and Growth

In this episode of the ‘Designed for Greatness’ podcast, host Candice interviews Stacy Harmer, a certified life and holistic health coach, author, speaker, and founder of Vibrant Living Wellness Academy. 

Stacy shares her personal journey of healing and transformation after the sudden loss of her daughter, which led her into a deep clinical depression. Through a powerful vision of a tree, she was inspired to focus on nourishing her body, heart, mind, and soul daily, which set her on a path of healing. 

Stacy emphasizes the importance of meditation, prayer, and personal development in overcoming grief and depression. She also discusses the critical role of words and thoughts in shaping our reality, introducing practical methods like affirmations to reclaim control over one’s mind. Additionally, Stacy touches on the significance of her physical body’s journey, expressing gratitude and the challenge of maintaining a healthy relationship with food and body image. 

The episode also highlights the upcoming Arise and Shine conference, designed to empower women to awaken to their divine greatness, aligning mind, body, and spirit to serve the world with their unique gifts.
