Today we’d like to introduce you to Caroline DeBolt.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I have two adult children, ages 29 and 23, and I am very proud of them both. The process we worked through, called parental alienation, started my search to feeling better. Because, if it weren’t for what happened, I would have never set out on my journey to find out who I am and what was going on with me. I searched everywhere outside myself and found that the answers were not there; they were inside me.
Parental alienation is what happens during a hostile divorce, where the children live with one of the parents and due to the normal and natural growth process of children, not being told the whole truth about the noncustodial parent, or being lied to about the noncustodial parent, the child decides to not want anything to do with a loving parent. I was the alienated parent.
During that time, I felt lost, alone and in a complete and utter depression and was desperately looking for a way to change what I was doing in my life. I, now have a beautiful relationship with them both and I am grateful to have been through the process and learned so much. (Please note that parental alienation not only affects noncustodial parents and the children but can also affect the siblings, grandparents and other special people in a child’s life.)
Also, because of my experience, I have started a support group for noncustodial mothers on Facebook. If you are a noncustodial mother looking for support or have been through parental alienation, please head over to Glimmers of Hope – Noncustodial Mother’s Support – Divorce/PA. Please be aware this is a closed group and you will need to answer a couple of questions before entry.
Looking for answers to help me, I went through many acquaintances, religions, places, college degrees and schools of thought looking for answers. I looked at all kinds of teachings to help me to get through it such as Eastern Philosophy, to include Yoga, Ayurvedic Medicine and energy work/Reiki. Where I landed at the time was with Native American/Indigenous Teachings and which helped the most to move to where I am today having taken personal development courses as well.
I also received a Master’s Degree in Metaphysical Humanistic Science in the last year and work as a Life Leadership Coach. I have a wide and varied background in many fields such as the military, business and administration.
How do I know so much about decluttering, downsizing, packing and moving? I have moved over 53 times in my life. So, that’s about 30 years worth of experience doing this. During these times, I learned to declutter, downsize, pack, deal with moving companies and the process of moving in and of itself.
It also took many years of research, study and learning how to be present in my own life, to combine my gifts and skills into a cohesive program that can assist you in working through anxiety, breaking through unconscious belief systems and guiding you in moving forward with decluttering your life so you can awaken to your infinite potential. I also use about 10 years of experience in coaching and mentoring to guide you through the process in a nonjudgmental, caring, loving and supportive way.
I say this, so you can see the result for me was to learn that it is not anyone else’s life I live for but my own. I was so busy making sure everyone else was happy and keeping the peace that it left no room for me and stuff began to stack up, literally; in my body, mind, spirit and environment. It can become so stressful that we are of no use to anyone, especially if we get sick, which is generally the outcome of continued anxiety, stress, overwhelm, etc. The result of decluttering your life is to release what no longer serves you, bringing you simplicity and freedom.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
No, the business is based on my life, what I learned and how I got through it. My intention is to teach and guide others using decluttering as a tool to declutter their environment, mind and life.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Declutter Your Life With Caroline – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
My business is helping people to declutter their environment which has a direct affect on the emotions, health, moving forward, etc. I am the owner/declutter coach and I specialize in guiding people through the process of decluttering and coach them through it.
I am known for my compassion, non-judgement and caring for my clients.
I am proud of the fact that people’s lives change when even clearing out something as small as a kitchen drawer, changes how they feel and the direction of their life. I’ve literally experienced people take deep breaths, feeling freer and clearer after doing the work. It amazes me every time.
I am not only an organizer, declutterer, packer, etc. I also work as a coach and use energy work and clearing to assist my clients in releasing what no longer serves them, so they can achieve what they want in life.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
My plans for the future are to do speaking engagements, webinars, workshops, finish my book (memoir) and a book on how decluttering your environment, declutters your mind and life, ways to do it, what clutter does to us, among other things.
