Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Tangela Allen.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
Life has challenged me to always check in with myself specifically when it comes to feeling that my steps are out of rhythm. As I journey through life, l have learned through several losses and several wins, that being in alignment mind, body, and soul are essential to success. Additionally, acknowledging and being aware of my fears, doubts, and overwhelming circumstances have kept me on a path of truth and staying committed to my authenticity. I discovered that it’s OK to not be OK on this alignment journey to authenticity. I also realized it is really necessary to celebrate your wins big or small. Staying in alignment is a journey not a destination!
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
I have overcome many challenges, but one I’m most proud of overcoming is rediscovering who I am and making myself a priority. Prior to, I had become an option while making everyone else a priority. I was busy making sure everyone else’s needs were met I forgot about me! As a result of my own neglect, my life spiraled out of alignment. I had lost my rhythm, my groove and myself! After realizing that I did not know who I was any more, I had an awakening and decided to find me again and realign my life. I am happy to say that this is one challenge that has become a part of my passion to guide others to realigning their lives one step at a time.
My specialty is helping others get back into alignment. At some point in everyone’s life, they have experienced feeling as if they were stuck living on a roller coaster and wanted to get off. These ups and downs that life takes us through has causes us to lose ourselves, our rhythm, AND our groove! With that said, I help my clients to identify the areas that are out of alignment, the areas that lack clarity or structure by readjusting their mindsets, and the areas that cause confusion. The client is provided a blueprint that they can utilize every time life sways too far to the left or to the right.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
Success dwells within each and every individual however unleashing it is a choice. I have found that my Power of the Pearl program and retreat serve as a foundation for identifying what success will look like and feel like for individuals. The Power of the Pearl is symbolic of the layers we have built over time to cover up our truth. We tolerate and uphold the lies that we tell ourselves or that have been told to us about us, and we barricade ourselves within the walls of our own protective barriers that sometimes prevent us from being vulnerable. The power that we possess is a choice to reset our life, align it with what serves us and what does not, and to embrace a beautiful and original Pearl – that is YOU.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
Although success is very personal, I live by some very effective tips that have helped me and I’m confident they will help you to!
- Find the balance that works for today.
- Have courage no matter what life presents
- Focus on positive relationships
- Never stop learning
- Have fun daily
- Practice optimism
- Challenge your perspective.
- Be open minded to the perspective of others.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Success is the ability to love myself right where I am. By doing this I will become aware of when my emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being are out of alignment. The next step is to get back in rhythm, reconnect to my groove and alignment, and stand in my truth – that is success.
What’s next for you?
I am looking forward to receiving a double doctorate at my very near doctoral graduation; the power of the Pearl retreat and upcoming speaking engagements where my message will be heard and echoed. These are the things that I am currently looking forward to.
