Local Inspirational Writer Victoria Johnson becomes Canada’s Teacher-Trainer
by Elissa Bergman
As a fellow writer, adventurer, and humanist, it isn’t a wonder that the world found a way to bring us together.
They say we meet people for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Do we call it “the law of attraction” or a similar vibrational wave, or the universe just bringing two souls together? Is life intentional or coincidence? Perhaps respectfully enough we leave that to be determined by the eye of the beholder. At this point in my life, I don’t know that I have the answer now or ever will; however I’ve come to learn that I do know this: leaning in toward others and projects with love and the most helpful intention seems to be the way for the most soulful connection with self and others.
Did I know at the time of meeting Victoria Johnson—now a Western Canadian inspirational writer/speaker, coach, and teacher with Heal Your Life Trademarked Programs—that our meeting through our “then” partners would surpass those unions. My path at the time seemed headed toward marriage and kids in a toxic relationship that I had been in denial about for some time, and growing a business with Victoria’s husband. A far cry different now six years later as I became owner and publisher of a Vancouver Island-based magazine, Almost Free Magazine where Victoria is a columnist; and for my love of entrepreneurship a partner in many start-ups while still doing marketing and advertising consulting on the side. While I try my best to live a health-focused life with lots of love, openness, passion, and personal growth, balance can definitely be a struggle. Life balance seems to be one of those things that Victoria masters and I have a feeling it is this that allows her to do so much.
She and I instantly hit it off when introduced. What struck me at the time was the compassion I felt, and the love that radiated through her voice. I felt listened to, appreciated, acknowledged, loved, and supported. Here was someone who was excited for who I was and my potential – and someone who had a true yearning to get to know my heart, soul, dreams, and goals. I could tell there lay a deep life experience I would eventually learn. I eventually did learn her life story and discovered her rich background experience in economics, public relations, entrepreneurship, and social media. Throughout the years we always found ways to connect, and re-connect, engage each other in potential collaboration, and stay in each others lives. So for that I am so grateful to the universe.
