TILT 2

A couple of months ago I was invited by DeeAnna Nagel and Kate Anthony from Online Therapy Institute to submit an article to TILT magazine  (TILT stands for “Therapeutic Innovations in Light of Technology“) and the issue that my article has been featured in has been published! A lot of my readers are coaches and therapists and people who are trying to navigate the internet in order to make a difference in the world with their messages and expertise, so I want to bring awareness to this awesome resource. (I know the cover picture is small but that’s my article on pg 14!)

 About TILT Magazine ~ TILT is about envisioning therapeutic interventions in a new way. While Kate was visiting DeeAnna on the Jersey Shore, they took a late afternoon boat ride and a display of sail boats tilting against the sunset came within view. It reminded them how, as helping professionals, we should always be willing to tilt our heads a bit to be able to envision which innovations – however seemingly unconventional – may fit our clients’ needs. Our clients are experiencing issues in new ways in light of the presence of technology in their lives. As helping professionals, so are we. TILT and the Online Therapy Institute is about embracing the changes technology brings to the profession, keeping you informed and aware of those developments, and entertaining you along the way.

Here is a copy of my article;

 From Starting a Blog to landing a Movie Deal ~ all on the WWW

 When I overcame dissociative issues and chronic depressions by seeing where they originated in the first place and how the false understandings of how relationships worked were stuck in my belief system, I found myself with a massive passion and desire to share my new found freedom and wholeness with the world.

In the beginning I started speaking in mental health seminars and I noticed that almost everyone in the room could relate to what I was speaking about when I talked about this ‘root belief system stuff’ that had resulted from the messages that I got from the actions of adults in my childhood. I was seeing people’s eyes pop open and they were mobbing me on the breaks. It was really validating to have so many people interested in talking to me in order to learn more about how I found this new freedom from depression and how I recovered my self-esteem.

I was in my mid-forties at this time and although I considered going back to school to become a therapist, I still had 3 kids at home and I lived way out in the country and couldn’t figure out how I would attend school if I did go back so I decided to become a professional coach. Since I was already working in the mental health arena, I chose a well-known American psychiatrist who was the dean of a reputable coaching institute, as my coaching instructor, so I could learn how to coach without crossing over into therapy.

Through coach training I learned about internet marketing and began to read about how to get known through the internet. The prospect of reaching a worldwide audience was really exciting to me and armed with the confidence in my message that I was receiving as a mental health advocate and inspirational speaker, I started to take a few courses on how  to get set up on the world wide web. I am not very techie. I barely knew how to cut and paste!  

I was overwhelmed with all the possibilities but I worked hard every day and downloaded every free training that I came across until I found the people that I really wanted to learn from and then I took a few actual internet marketing courses. I determined from my studies that having a professional blog was the most effective way to present content and I took an online course with step by step instruction on starting a wordpress blog and I set up my website “Emerging from Broken.com”.

Although I had never considered myself “a writer” I started writing about my journey to wholeness; I wrote small consumable bite sized stories about how I discovered the false messages that were stuck in my brain because of the damage and trauma I had endured in my childhood. I wrote about sexual abuse, dissociative identity disorder, trauma and depression. I wrote about my life and the solutions that I had found that helped me overcome the trauma in my own life. I learned about key words, and facebook and a few other social media mediums and learned how to get my content found and how to share it and how to get it shared and I started to get comments on my blog!

That was four and a half years ago now. My blog grew and grew and within two years I was averaging 1000 legit comments a month and many of the comments were and still are over 2000 words. I invited some experts to guest post and I have invited people to share their own personal stories of healing. I have guest posted on other sites, and commented on other blogs related to my blog topics, all of which helped me to increase my reach, which was my primary goal in the beginning!

I also built a very successful private coaching practice through my blog. I have never advertised, or posted that I had an opening (not even in facebook) because I usually have a waiting list. I coach on the phone in Canada and the USA and on skype in all other countries. 50% of my clients are American and the other 50% are from all over the world.

Today the blog itself has over 400 posts and over 33,000 comments! When Emerging from Broken was about 4 months old I started a facebook fan page and I have organically grown the following there to over 50,000 people and the Emerging from Broken facebook page attracts an average of 100 new followers a day. I have become known as an expert on emotional healing and my website is read in 156 countries.

Last month I was contacted by award winning producer Robin Jay, with an invitation to be in her next self-help movie “The Secrets of the Keys” which is a prequel to her first movie “The Keeper of the Keys” staring Jack Canfield (co-creator of “Chicken Soup for the Soul” and author of “The Success Principles”), Marci Shimoff (author of “Happy for No Reason”), and Dr. John Gray (author of “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.”) “The Keeper of the Keys” was the first funny self-help film. It won the Las Vegas International Film Festival Award for Best Independent Film and The INDIE Fest Award for Best Documentary.

Robin Jay signed me to co-star in the next “Key” movie “The Secrets of the Keys” as a featured “Key Expert” I will be presenting on the key of Harmony. I will be co-staring in this film with icons of the personal development industry including Brian Tracy, Michael Beckwith, Dannion Brinkley (Author of “Saved by the Light,”) John Assaraf, Gloria Loring, and will feature special guest don Miguel Ruiz, author of “The Four Agreements.” I am so excited and extremely honored to co-star with these amazing messengers in the field of self-help and personal development. I never imagined that my passion for reaching the world with my message of hope and healing would land me a movie deal!

Most Coaches and Therapists have a passion to help people. That’s why we do what we do and who doesn’t want to reach a wider audience? I saw a problem in the world and I believed I could contribute to the solution. I believed that I had unique information and I found a way to share it. I researched the best way to deliver this information and I learned how to do it. I celebrated the milestones along the way and I persevered through the tough times. There was a time when I thought that building this whole thing took too long but when stop and think about it honestly, it’s only been 4.5 years and in that time have built a really high traffic website with hundreds of thousands of readers, I built a successful business, I published my first book “Emerging from Broken ~ The Beginning of Hope for Emotional Healing” this summer and I have a movie deal. I think that is pretty awesome!

Hope and persistence mixed with passion plus courage and the willingness to share information has been the recipe that got me on the road to the where I am today.

There is beauty (and success) on the other side of broken,

Darlene Ouimet

Darlene, you are on a roll! Congratulations on all of your successes! It is all well deserved, because you help so many people and it comes straight from your heart. Your blogs and your book have been tremendously helpful to me and I’ve seen big changes in my thinking and how I feel about myself over the past 16 months. And my journey continues on. I am cheering you on through all your achievements. You deserve all the best. Much love, Amber.

Darlene,

Thank you so much for your willingness to share your story with TILT Magazine. We are honored to know you- and I can say, “I knew you when…” I am so glad we kept up with each other all these years! Best to you and your new venture!

The WWW is the fastest and most effective way of reaching people, and I am so happy for your much deserved success Darlene! It is very obvious that everything you are doing is about helping others find themselves and find healing and you have every right to be proud of yourself and to enjoy all the new doors that have been opening in your life. It is very exciting to hear how many lives your story and your words and giftings have reached in such a short time. I had no idea it was so many around the world! I think in a world where it is extremely difficult to find a safe place to pour out the pain, anger and confusion from abuse, this blog is more precious than gold! To find a person like you who has the kind of insight and solutions is rare, but more than that…..you truly desire to see people heal and be happy and that is what comes through your blog. You have powerfully learned how to help, but you don’t intrude and push people…and you don’t do what everyone hates….which is to pull back from giving the answers people are desperately searching for when they are needing them. I want you to know I have tears of gratitude right now for the amount of caring you have poured into this blog and everyone who ends up here. You deserve this success and I only hope it grows more and more for you! Xoxoxo 🙂

Absolutely thrilled and inspired by who you are, what you’ve come through and how you inspire hope for broken people, including me. I felt ashamed and afraid to talk about what happened. In sharing your story, you let me know it’s okay, it’s like you extend your hand to the little person in each of us. Thank you.

Darlene I am so excited about your movie, I am sure it will be great. I remember when you started just over four years ago. I have often recommended your blog.

I am now working with MK Safety Net, a not for profit, non religious organization. We advocate for missionary kids now grown adults who were abused in a mission environment. Many suffered for years because of cover ups and denials by missions. We also have a film All God’s Children about three families who children suffered abuse in boarding school, a documentary by Scot Solary and Luci Westfaul.

Congratulations Darlene!

You have worked hard and earned the recognition you are getting, and I think you have helped so many many, so deeply impacting my life in a positive and helpful way, to find hope and take our lives back, to heal deep wounds, I at least never thought I could heal.

You are truly an inspiration and positive influence in the world!

I am excited about your book and the coming movie as well.

Cheers,

Dave

Well done Darlene you have reached and touched the hearts of so many people, I am in the middle stages of therapy where i am ‘looking at why i dissociated because of the things that happened to me’and because of your encouraging words, brutal honesty and identification of what it is like to be someone who endured abuse, makes my journey to healing that little bit more easy- you get it- like no other person has ever before- you know- I wish you lots of abundance and may the movie and publishing of articles be just the tip of the iceberg for you. xxx

Enjoy and Congratulations,
your example, your courage and your wisdom together with all the work, love and understanding that you put into this project has helped me a lot on my way to regain and reclaim my life, my history, my memories and my trust into myself, the people and the world. Maybe there is no ultimate goal for me but to keep on walking and to stay on track while trying not again to loose my faith that everything will turn out just right. Joy.

A lovely article to edit as well! Inspirational. Great to know you, Darlene!

Thanks Martha and Alice!

Welcome to EFB Lyn Kelley and thanks for your note!

Hi DeeAnna ~ thanks for inviting me to write something for TILT! It was fun to write with a different focus this time! And I can say “I knew you when” too! (and I did yesterday when I was talking to Robin Jay who is the producer of the movie I am going to be in ~ I was telling her how I met you etc. and that was before EFB began!)
I am glad we kept in touch too.
Darlene
Hugs, Darlene

Hi FinallyFree
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your words today; Something that I realized very early on in my healing was that I began to flourish when someone ‘saw me’ and helped me to validate (to myself) the pain that I was in. I wanted to recreate that on a large scale and that was my first goal for this blog. To somehow communicate to people that I “SEE them” and help them to validate their pain. At the end of the day, people who have been ‘invalidated’ don’t feel as though anyone ‘gets them’ and we all want to be seen and heard. Your comments today mean a lot to me because they validate that I have done what I set out to do. Bigger than that though is that you “GET ME” and you see me and you understand what I am trying to do. You are a very empowering person yourself and I appreciate your presence and voice here on EFB
Hugs, Darlene

Hi Bruised no Bleeding!
Thank you for sharing ~ you are not alone in those feelings! Thank you for seeing that my hand is extended! That is such a beautiful way to say it!
hugs, Darlene

16

Hi Shary!
I am familiar with MK Safety Net ~ that is wonderful that you are working with them!
Thanks for sharing today!
hugs, Darlene

Hi Dave
Thank you for your encouragement and comments!
I am excited too! The book is selling well and I just gave my editor the first 100 pages of the second book. (I had started it before I finished the first one so they overlapped a bit) I think the movie is going to be very well done and I am really excited to be a part of it!
hugs, Darlene

Hi Marie
Thanks for your comments! YAY that you are feeling some assistance on the healing journey from what I am doing here!! That is why I started this whole thing! I am being interviewed by a therapist in November who is recommending my book and blog to therapists in his network. Another exciting milestone!
hugs, Darlene

Hi Oliver
Thank you! Love your goals. Thanks for sharing,
hugs, Darlene

Darlene, RE: your message #15 to Finally Free; Exactly!! What we need is that initial spark of hope! We need someone to see, someone that can validate us after a lifetime of feeling that we are wrong, not valuable and never feeling validated. I needed to hear from someone, somewhere that maybe, just maybe it wasn’t me that something was wrong with, and that the blame, guilt, and negative things people attached to me could actually be false. Occasionally I would come across someone who would validate a small piece of this. Someone who might tell me that I look pretty after a lifetime if ugly comments from my mother, or someone who would tell me that they felt I wasn’t to blame for something. But these messages were too tiny to be sustained for any length of time because they would get crushed under the weight of the huge false belief system I was groomed to accept.
But then, finally, a whole website, an entire blog of many articles that explain and validate everything from how we come to accept false things about us as true, how we became invalidated, coping methods we developed that helped us get through childhood but are now outdated, dealing with undeserved guilt and blame and so much more! Darlene, I may not know you personally, but I can tell you your website and your wonderful book did make me feel seen and validated and gave me hope. I will continue the process, and will definitely be buying all future books of yours. 🙂 🙂

Hi Kate ~
Thanks! I am glad that you enjoyed reading it! (I just realized when you said that it was a pleasure to edit, that I used MY copy pre-edit on this post and since I know my book editor makes a LOT of little changes to my copy, I hope that you didn’t have to make too many and if you did, ~ to the readers here ~ this copy is no reflection on the editing in the TILT magazine!!)
Hugs, Darlene

Hi Amber ~
You are super sweet and thoughtful and I appreciate your comments SO MUCH. I am LOVING the feedback that you include about the EFB book in your comments too. I had a meeting with my editor last night about book 2 (the first 100 pages are ready for edit!) AND I had a meeting with my tech partner about presenting some online classes using the books as references. The live classes will be recorded and placed behind a log in (for people that can’t attend live) and I am going to do LIVE question and answer after each class as well. I am not sure how soon I can develop all of this (I have a lot going on right now with the movie and clients and family stuff) but I am going to start working on formulating it. 🙂
Thanks for all your wonderful comments and encouragement Amber! I know that you GET me too!
hugs, Darlene

21

You deserve all of the rewards that are happening for you, Darlene! Your words and courage are full of love and integrity. More people like you aught to have this sort of reward. (Rather than those who are selfish and want to take advantage of people.) Congratulations! You are so solid and you deserve to enjoy your success and to let your light shine to as wide an audience as possible. Thank you for being a light to all of us. You have given me and so many of us information to heal our minds and hearts. You are an inspiration. Yeah!! Rock on! 🙂

22

Darlene,

Congratulations, and this is well deserved. You are helping so many people expose the lies under which they have lived their lives for too long. Your journey was difficult, but thanks to you and your courage, you have been able to show us that we can all make it.

Every time I expose a lie with the simple truth that we ALL have equal value, it amazes me how quickly the phony house of cards continues to come crumbling down.

Blessings!…and THANK YOU <3

23

Hi Naomi
Thank you so much! I appreciate every one of your wonderful words!
hugs, Darlene

Hi Callynt
YES we can ALL make it! Love these comments too and I love the visual of the house of cards tumbling down!
hugs, Darlene

Congrats Darlene! I’m glad your message just keeps spreading wider to more and more people! Even though you can’t get through to everyone—those who will resist will resist—still the more the merrier. In the beginning, so much value is set in having certain people understand us because of the relationship they hold (e.g. being your mom and dad and outward through the people in your life). Then often it becomes anyone who is there who disagrees with you and wants to push you down. But in the end, those who have the most personal value to us are those who recognize our value as equal human beings, and those who don’t recognize our value will slip away, to live their lives restricted by their own misjudgment and cruelty, as we learn to say no more—equality or nothing. You are an inspiration to me personally and professionally with the voice you carry out to the world. I hope that all your dreams for the future come true—a) because I love you and b) because your message is one that is best for all. Equality, respect, consideration for everyone, no matter their position, knowing that no one has possession or entitlement over another person, whoever they are—nothing less and nothing else can heal the world. I’m rooting for you and the ripple effect of all your work.

25

Hi Darlene,

I have not commented in a long time, but I have been reading and following along. Congratulations on your accomplishments! It’s so thrilling to see what is possible when one can live in truth and healing and empathy. I have also made leaps and bounds in my life in the last year, not the least of which included healing the relationship with my brother and being finally able to offer him empathy for what he suffered in our childhoods, mostly because I had done so much work in achieving empathy for myself. Your blog was instrumental in that process.

With love and respect,
Sophia

Darlene,

It took 66 emotionally painful years of “living” (with several damaging pathological relationships along the way)before a Facebook friend finally shared your inspirational Emerging from Broken page with me. I had already lost hope, I’m afraid. Maybe I believed, unrealistically, that healing would magically happen through outside rather than through inner means. My personal story is so bizarre and apparently unbelievable that professionals with whom I tried to share it – therapists, counsellors, psychoanalysts – wished to wash their hands of me. Consequently I was forced to carry my troubles and my utter bafflement in silence.

After the last counsellor, who couldn’t relate to my story and who told me that nobody would want to read my book – how’s that for engendering self-esteem? – I became totally dysfunctional and then my health began to crumble. I had three serious operations in just over a year and barely had the strength or desire to recover from them. I only went outside my home when there was absolutely not a crumb of food left. I entirely lost faith in the human race. I barely spoke to anyone.

Then suddenly Emerging from Broken was revealed to me like a mirage … I think that was in June (2014). Slowly but surely, day by day, your inspirational message lodged itself into my brain. Slowly but surely my energy and zest for life came back. I began to make plans for the future … wow! I suddenly SAW a FUTURE! I began to believe that spiritual and emotional healing might be a possibility.

I decided to blow most of my savings on a BIG adventure holiday in the USA for my Significant Other and I. This step would ensure that I would have to make a concerted effort to re-launch my (self-employed) career in the months following the holiday.

Day by day I sat down at my computer and planned the exciting holiday, step by step. (The most cost-effective way to get from JFK Airport to New York City, for example; what subway lines to take from place to place; best way to get from San Francisco Airport to our booked accommodation …) I began to look forward to my daily planning. What’s more, I joined some meetup groups and made new friends. (I had to give up on the old ones … they were mostly abusive relationships.) Day by day I also read your posts on Emerging from Broken.

Well, the exciting holiday is over and I’m suffering from jetlag in a very pleasant way. I learned on my travels that the world is not a bad place and that people everywhere are mostly kind and good. (It was my personal misfortune to get stuck with the bad ones.) I no longer wake up reluctantly in the mornings to face my day; I no longer feel a distressing twinge or stomach-dip when I think about my life. I actually look forward to what remains of it and hope to prolong it indefinitely.

Maybe after 66 years of despair and hopelessness it took only four months for my individual healing process to manifest and do its job! And Emerging from Broken certainly did the job where others failed.

Thank you, Darlene. You are a miracle-worker.

Ever grateful,

Paula

Hi Alaina
Thanks! As always your comments are so well written and presented so wonderfully. I LOVE your sentence ~ “But in the end, those who have the most personal value to us are those who recognize our value as equal human beings, and those who don’t recognize our value will slip away, to live their lives restricted by their own misjudgment and cruelty, as we learn to say no more—equality or nothing.”

The bottom line has become “equality or nothing” for me, and I was a little surprised to find out that MANY people actually respond to that bottom line when they realize that I do not want to power over them. I want to be seen the way that I am willing to see others; as the unique and valuable individuals that each of us are.
hugs, Darlene

28

Hi Sophia!
Great to hear from you! That is awesome about the healing in relationship with your brother!
Thank you so much for your comments!
hugs, Darlene

29

Hi Paula
Welcome to EFB ~ Wow what an amazing story, thank you for posting it here!
I am thrilled that my writing has impacted you this way!
Hugs, Darlene

Darlene,

Congratulations for being who you are and doing what you do. I cannot recall myself ever wanting to be like anyone, but for the first time in my life I can’t hold the urge to say it. I want to be like you one day! Helping so many people and sharing the gift of the” true truth” with the entire world. You deserve even more, and I am sure it is on the way.

As a tutor I was always in a difficult position to have to explain to parents why I do not scold their children, punish them or be stricter when they wouldn’t perform. So many parents have asked me not to be so loving towards their kids and just give them some more homework to improve their grades. It came to me naturally to want to protect them, and frankly I didn’t know how to tell the parents that they were.. well… TOTALLY WRONG. They would give me the “you don’t know anything about children” treatment. Through your blog I found the appropriate answers to some very inappropriate parental demands, and even a couple weeks ago I found the courage to walk up to a young boy and tell him that he was totally right and not at fault when his grandma threatened him and then totally devalued him in public. The little man just smiled and said “thank you miss”, his eyes so bright and his smile so gorgeous. Pfff, just crying now so I’ll stop.

Anyways, thank you for being you Darlene.

31

Warm wishes and congratulations, Darlene.

Your site has helped me realize that I was on spot with my feelings that my poor parenting in childhood shaped the poor self image I have carried with–with a heavy load, and uphill both ways — for over four decades. I have come to realize that many of the things I have been accused of–even as a small child were wrong, and those that were true–weren’t exactly a crime and I was no better or worse than anyone else in my family.

32

Hi Elli G.
Wow, Thank you and I consider your words a HUGE compliment!
I have a heart for children as well and I always have. I didn’t know how to put this stuff into words either until about 6 or 7 years ago now. Thank you for sharing your story about the young boy you stood up for! That is amazing!
hugs, Darlene

Hi Eira
Thank you! I came to those same conclusions. Thank you for being part of this blog!
Hugs, Darlene

33

Hi Darlene, I’m so happy for your success and not all surprised! I’m also, very thankful that the internet is your main medium. I was an invisible child, who learned to use that invisibility as a coping mechanism. I never had a sense of safety in the world and though my invisibility to my parents was the result of their emotional neglect, it became a refuge for me, from abuse. It is very hard for me to really trust anyone. Online I can maintain a certain level of ‘invisibility’ and safety that makes it easier to talk about the abuse in my life. I’ve always been a reader and I’ve spent my life searching for answers by reading. Here I could read and also, be heard. It has made all the difference in my life and I no longer have the need to become invisible as often, since I understand my past and how it affected me, through your work and also, the work I’ve done here.

I think you know you have all of my support and I’m thrilled to see your circle of influence expanding. You have taken what was a great evil in your life and made it into a light for others. It doesn’t get any better than that. You go girl!

Love,
Pam

34

Hi Darlene…I’m a big fan. Reading your material has helped me more 5th an you will ever know. I’m a 55 year old wife, mother and grandma and I’m also the scapegoat in my dysfunctional nuclear family. I’m getting closer and closer to cutting ties. Actually, because I spoke up for myself again the parents are giving me the silent treatment..again. Is there a chat room or how do I get onto your blog in real time? Also..how do I buy your book with Us dollars?

35

Hi Kady
Welcome to emerging from broken ~ Thank you for your note.
The chat here is on each individual article. Everyone is welcome in the discussions. (they rarely go more than a few hours without some comments 24/7 ~ To see the current comments or current conversations just scroll down on the right side bar to “recent comments” and click on them.
About the book ~ you can just buy it and paypal will convert it to Canadian, (so the Canadian amount will be charged to you. You don’t have to worry about which currency you use. People all over the world have bought it without any issues. 🙂
Hugs, Darlene

36

Hi Pam
Thanks for your comments and your congrats! That was my goal and I feel really good about what I have accomplished here! I appreciate your support and friendship! (and I appreciate and miss your guest posts if you are ever so inclined to contribute again you are most welcome!)
Hugs, Darlene

37

Darlene, I do miss writing.:0)When you have time, send me an email to my new addy and we can discuss it. It’s a long story but I’ve lost my old email account and ALL of the information I had stored there.
Love you,
Pam

38

Hi Everyone ~ I just published a new post. I got a ‘dear Darlene’ letter and I answered it publically. A hurt mother wants me to write in a more balanced way and is upset that I represent the hurt child. You can read it here. “When a Mother says she is the Victim of her Adult Children”

Looking forward to the conversation on this one! ~ Darlene

39

Darlene,

You represent the child because that is what this is about, abused children. I, for one, would be terribly upset if you chose to write from the viewpoint of the abuser.

Thank you for everything,
Linda

40

Hi Darlene,
From the other side of hell to this, you should be so proud of how non invisible you are now. Most of all proud of how much you have helped so many people and for TRUSTING yourself. My Mom always warned us of “jumping from the frying pan into the fire”….I would say that you might be feeling “hot”. You deserve so much praise, and from someone who has had it all, acceptance, love, even friendship with my parents, I am so glad that I found your message. I never knew any different, and just always assumed that everyone had the life I was blessed with?! You Go Girl…..Kelly

41

Hi Kelly
Thank you! I appreciate your comments and encouragement. 🙂
Yes, with the movie deal and my recently arranged biz trip to France and London, and a few cool interviews coming up, I am feeling pretty ‘hot’!! LOL
hugs, Darlene
