The professional version:
Molly McCord, M.A., is a bestselling author and modern spiritual teacher with no religious affiliations. Her debut memoir, The Art of Trapeze: One Woman's Journey of Soaring, Surrendering, and Awakening, hit #1 in 2 Amazon categories within 3 days. She is published in The Thought That Changed My Life Forever alongside such luminaries as Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith, Dr. Joe Dispenza, and Dr. Bernie Siegel.
The Art of Trapeze is Book One in The Awakening Consciousness Series and tells "the story." But wait - there's more to it than what you read on those pages!
Book Two in the series is The Modern Heroine's Journey of Consciousness and references, for the first time, how spiritual growth is in alignment with Joseph Campbell's the hero's journey.
The Unlimited Sparks of A Bonfire (Spring 2014), Book Three, is a travel adventure that combines stories and spiritual information from the previous two books that brings you to a new sense of renewal about your personal power, peace, and presence.
Molly's other current published books include Conscious Messages: Spiritual Wisdom and Inspirations For Awakening and Conscious Thoughts: Powerful Affirmations To Connect With Your Soul's Language.
Molly's popular website, ConsciousCoolChic.com was nominated by Intent.com for Best Spirituality Website in 2011. She is also a practicing intuitive astrologer and the official contributing astrologer every month to Happiness + Wellbeing magazine. Molly's popular weekly radio show attracted over 70,000 downloads in the first year.
The more interesting first-person version:
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Political Science with a minor in Women’s Studies, and since four years apparently wasn't enough time raising my hand, I returned to school after six years in the Real World to earn a Master of Arts in International Relations and Diplomacy. I've worked in various government offices, from the unofficial-but-paid (elected student leader in college), to city-level dynamics, to the highly prestigious (Ambassador's Office in Paris, France). I routinely emerge as a leader in everything I am inspired to do, but I finally accepted politics wasn't the most-perfect fit because I was tired of suppressing my sparkle. Never put your sparkle in the corner. Leap!
Marketing, communications, and business development became my thang because my creativity, innovation, and smarts could shine. From Fortune 500 companies to small business owners needing support and confidence, I regularly take ideas and e-x-p-a-n-d them into bigger concepts with humor and inspiration. But wait – what if I took all of the data analysis, best practices, and business strategy knowledge I've obtained and apply it to my heart's true passions: spiritual teaching and sharing consciousness insights as a form of service to the world? Leap!
I started studying astrology in 1993, and the esoteric concepts opened me up to the New Age/Self-Help section in book stores (remember book stores?) where I secretly consumed fascinating stories about psychics, angels, and wacky spiritual areas like “the energies of crystals” (it was the 90's, what can I say). I couldn't get enough talk of “energy” and “healing” and “spirit guides” and literally tried every healing modality I could find. As of 2013, I've connected with astrology clients in over 20 countries and have been humbled to contribute to their path in some way. There are some *amazing* souls out there in the world, WOW.
So, take twenty years of spiritual study... add fifteen years of simultaneous experiences as a Marketing Director, Digital Marketing Strategist, and Event Planner... throw in political savvy and spiritual passion... and this lovely non-linear path has led me to connect with thousands of global spiritual seekers wanting to expand their consciousness. And I literally love (LOVE.) what I do every dang day.
I released five books in 2013, including being a contributor to a traditionally-published book. I have at least four more books in the works. And all I can say is, it's a really exciting time to be an author!
Are you following your dreams right now (any of them, all of them)? There is so much support for ALL OF US to do that at this time in humanity's great shift. Let me know if I can help you with an astrology session, or check out my books, radio show, and website for inspirations.
Okay, enough about me. Feel free to drop me a note to connect!
