Does this sound like you?

  • You have the uncanny ability to actually experience being in someone else's shoes.
  • People constantly tell you, "I have never told anyone that." 
  • Others call you, "an Angel."
  • Highly idealistic, you often think/feel, "Why can't people just get along? Why can't we just be friends?"
  • People perceive you as highly creative, romantic, nurturing and relationship oriented. 
  • You have an abhorrence - a very strong distaste - for conflict. 
  • Words have deeper meaning for you, often a magical essence, that most other people don't perceive. 

Do you consider yourself as an empath, a Highly Sensitive Person, a HeartCentred Intuitive (INFJ, ENFJ, iNFP, ENFP)? 

How are you doing with the current events?

My Secret: a Life of Exceptional Turbulence

I don’t really know if there was a time of my life that was turbulent free. There were moments of stability, mind you, but being raised in the home of a self-medicating individual geographically situated where the political climate was in turmoil meant that my younger years were plagued with change, uncertainty and the unknown.

I was born and raised in a community, culture and clime that experienced significant political chaos and turbulence. I can remember being a child, not understanding the tension I felt, not understanding why our schools kept being closed, why there was this war and division among the people. Everywhere there was division, separation, hatred. At first, it seemed to me to be religious and we were somehow on the wrong side … experienced walking down the street, going to school or playing in the neighbourhood. But then it became so much more. Eventually, we had to move, relocating a great distance and leaving family behind.

  • By the time I reached grade ten, high school, I had been in 10 schools.
  • By the time I was 12 I had lived in five different neighbourhoods, in 2 different provinces.
  • This pattern followed me throughout university.  I lived in four different places, with four different sets of roommates. I scored two summer positions in the field as an ecologist: packing my things in one week and being gone into the bush the next week.
  • When I worked in Parks Canada, not only did we change campsites on a weekly basis, our accommodations when we were in town had also changed. That 6-month period alone I had lived in 4 locations (not including the campsites).

    Transition became such a way of life for me, that I felt like the geese each fall: I felt the need to move, to change my location, to go somewhere different.

    This restlessness changed, but the skills that I developed living an exceptionally turbulent life never left me.  

    I never told anyone that secret, because the motto in our home was, "Don't talk, Don't trust, Don't Feel." 

    While those of us who have experienced turbulent lives have been through a lot, we have obtained skills and abilities that others with more stable realities have not needed to develop. We have learned to change, and adapt, so many times that we do so instinctively. Without thought our malleable nature allows us to shape-shift into whatever needs to be had at whatever point in time.

    There is an index to measure that flexibility. It is the identity index at 16 Personalities dot com. These researchers have reworked the Myers-Briggs Indicator to add the factors -Turbulent and -Assertive.

    I wasn't surprised that I got a -T on my results when I first took it; but I am happy to report that the last time I did I got a -A! It is possible! I am the proof! (As are the people I have worked with!) 

    ~ Please go to www.16Personalities.com to take the quiz. ~




    While many see this -Turbulent nature as a lack of identity presenting as a lack of confidence, I See things differently.

      • I See our malleability, our flexibility, our adaptability.
      • I See that those of us who have transverse from -Turbulent Identities to -Assertive ones have gifts to offer the world at this time.

    If we have acquired positive coping skills and healthy life skills with advanced emotional intelligence, then we have obtained - through life - what others are seeking. We become the Beacons of Love and Light: the lighthouses, to our family, friends, our neighbours, our colleagues.  That is why I have dedicated the past five years, and the rest of my life to guiding the process of individuals with -Turbulent identities racked with self-doubt and insecurity to -Assertive beings with confidence, resilience and grace.

    How do we make that transition to become a boundaried sensitive empathic HeartCentred Intuitive™?



    Becoming a Boundaried Sensitive Empathic HeartCentred Intuitive

    There are those of us who are HeartCentred Intuitives™ (HSP, INFJ, ENFJ, INFP, ENFP, empaths) that have faced storms of epic emotional proportions on a near-daily basis. When we experience emotions sourced both within our being and those sourced from those around us, the intensity of what we experience can be tremendous.

    We have two choices in those situations. We can:

    • Numb and shield with addictions of various kinds, like the rest of the population; or
    • Learn various skills and techniques when it comes to applied emotional intelligence.


    When we choose the latter, we are better able to embrace life more fully. For the reality is, that many of us HeartCentred Intuitives™  have been applying social distance for a long time as a THRiVING mechanism. The world can be so overstimulating for some of us Highly Sensitive Beings, that Standing Strong & Resilient in the Face of Life’s Storms ~ with Grace is our greatest dream and desire. To experience the kind of stability that comes from having an -Assertive personality rather than a -Turbulent one provides both hope and inspiration.

    Standing Strong & Resilient in the Face of Life’s Storms ~ with Grace is our greatest dream and desire. To experience the kind of stability that comes from having an -Assertive personality rather than a -Turbulent one provides both hope and inspiration.

    Meaning, for some of us, we experience intense emotional storms on a regular and frequent basis. Some of us have learned the emotional intelligence skills it takes to navigate our InnerScape through the storms that appear before us. Some have developed our Sea Legs, become familiar with the Winds of Change, dialled in our inner compass to competently spot the land, map the new territory and obtain a new perspective of life by obtaining mastery in skills we once lacked.

    It is for this reason that I coach and mentor Ultimate Life Skills & Emotional Intelligence to navigate through the storms of life. Having done so both one-on-one and in groups, online and in-person, for over a decade. 

    Do you know what I found? 


    Standing Strong & Resilient during a Storm

    I watched my mentor as he gave a presentation. It was broadcasted in early February 2020. There he stood in his living room, completely undeterred by the torrential tropical storm that was evident through the window behind him.

    I watched him: focused, intent, convicted. Whatever was happening outside of the world he was living in: didn’t exist.

    I saw in him what I saw in myself. I saw Focus. I saw Intent. I saw Dedication. 

    Some times we need someone like that to show us the way; to just be held in the hands of someone who is stable and confident, who can:

        • comfort us at a time of distress,
        • assist us in mastering our inner landscape,
        • remind us to protect our visions and goals through the decisions we make,
        • expand our joy by delighting in our abilities whether it be charting a course, adopting a new skillset, mapping a new territory or obtaining a new perspective.
        • watch over us as we explore uncharted territory, providing an extra set of eyes, ears and hands while we get our bearings.

    Some times we simply need a Beacon of Light to show us the way home.

    I know, because I have been there over and over again.

    And I Know that it is when I have accepted the sustaining support of those who are able to sustain me when I need a refuge from the storm or a springboard into life that I have achieved greater heights than if I was alone. My confidence in this process has expanded because I have seen it time and again as I have worked with HeartCentered Intuitives™ – both individuals and in groups. Witnessing the transmutation from a -Turbulent identity to an -Assertive one (from being plagued with self-doubt and insecurity to confidence and resilience) is miraculous!

    Isn’t that what we need right now? Certainty? Confidence? Resilience? Is it what you need?

    This transition from turbulence to confidence is possible! It can happen. It does happen all the time in the KivaGarden!

    Imagine if you could maintain that sense of security and confidence in all aspects of your life regardless of the weather outside.

    How valuable would that be to you?

    It is possible.

    It is obtainable.

    It is available: right now!

    [Kimber] helped me understand myself better when I had some rough times.

    I highly recommend the works of Kim. She's not only a mentor but a life coach. I am an NF (Intuitive Feeling type) personality myself and she helped me understand myself better when I had some rough times. I am more confident, stronger, wiser and kind despite the fact that I am a sensitive person. I wish my parents had resources like this when I was a kid. I highly recommend this to every parent raising a sensitive kid so that the they will learn how to deal their children and make their relationship great. I think it will make a huge difference in terms of understanding a sensitive child better. Deb


    [Kimber] helped me become more aware of my empathetic and 'earth angel' characteristics.

    I met Kimber in a goal setting workshop in January 2017. During this time I started seriously contemplating whether or not my career was the 'right fit' for me and Kimber immediately offered to work with me and during our meetings helped me become more aware of my empathetic and 'earth angel' characteristics. Kimber was able to offer very caring, sensitive, patient and dedicated mentorship, opening up a space for me to transform my ideas into reality. Kimber's gentle yet highly skilled approach allowed me to shift my view of myself. Lara
