About Paula

Paula Meyer became a widow on June 1, 2018, at 54. Her husband, Gary, passed away after a long and courageous battle with throat cancer. He was only 62. Two days later, her ex-husband and father of her two adult children, Brad, died unexpectedly. Her way of coping was to throw herself into her work, as a way of not having to deal with the pain and loss.
As her health deteriorated, she ended up in the ER on Nov 12, 2018, her 55th birthday, and underwent an emergency appendectomy. Realizing that she had missed many subtle signs that her body was in crisis, she knew this was a wake-up call. With all the international travel that she did for her job, she was grateful this had not happened in a foreign country or on an airplane.
Yet it still took a couple months, with the help and support of a grief coach, to make major decisions that would get her back on the road to health and making herself the priority in her life. She resigned her job in Feb 2019 and went on a year of travel. She also grieved leaving her job and the community that she was a part of for nearly 12 years.
As the year of travel ended, the global Covid-19 pandemic began along with major social unrest around the world. She was able to use the tools and strategies of navigating her grief with Gary, to deal with the grief brought on by the pandemic and social unrest.

Along with everyone else, she was confronted with losing her freedom, losing her normal life, being thrown into the unknown as she was just getting her business off the ground, and waking up every day to the same reality. She realized that this was the same kind of grief that she experienced with Gary’s death. The circumstances were different, but the mechanics were the same!

Paula writes about her year of travel in her Amazon International #1 Bestseller, Great Loss, Greater Love: The Art & Heart of Navigating Grief, released on April 13, 2021 with As You Wish Publishing. She has also produced a companion Great Loss, Greater Love Card Deck and Blossom From Loss Meditations.
She is also a collaborative author in these Amazon bestsellers by As You Wish Publishing:
  • Inspirations: 101 Uplifting Stories For Daily Happiness (July 2019)
  • Manifestations: True Stories Of Bringing The Imagined Into Reality (Jan 2020)
  • The Grateful Soul: The Art and Practice of Gratitude (May 2020)
  • Ordinary Oneness: The Simplicity of Everyday Love, Grace and Hope (April 2021)
One of Paula’s goals is to help other women get back in the game of life and realize there is still so much to learn and love with the time we have left.
Paula has more than 30 years’ experience as an event, workshop, and meeting planner and procurement/contracting specialist, and 12 years in author/speaker management. In her previous job, she had the pleasure of organizing and managing 151 workshops around the world for a well-known author. She has travelled to 20 countries and 40 states in the US. Her goal is to visit 30 countries and all 56 states/territories in the US before she turns 62!

A REMARKABLE SKILLSET TO WITNESS

“Paula brings to her skillset extreme capabilities based on many years of working, researching, offering a hands on approach and above all a pragmatic and genuine desire for any event she is involved in to be successful for all parties involved.

She has an eye for detail and can ‘multi-task’ like no one I’ve ever worked with, with each ‘cell or section’ she is working on or with, being given her whole capacity. It’s a remarkable skill to witness.

Personally, Paula has a warm, caring, wise, observant nature, all deeply desirable when working with presenters, contractors, colleagues, and the general public.

She supports you by making you feel totally comfortable and of the understanding that your event will be well produced and well managed. An event produced by Paula Meyer, can be guaranteed professional, respectful, and successful.”

A DYNAMIC ORGANIZER

“Paula Meyer was the driving force behind Dr. Joe Dispenza’s Encephalon team for nearly 12 years. I’ve had the great pleasure of working with her the entire time.

Paula has seen Dr. Joe’s enterprise grow from leading small groups locally to facilitating week-long events with thousands of attendees at exotic locations around the globe. Paula is a dynamic organizer. She accommodated these changes, learning and expanding as the opportunities did.

No challenge was too big or too small for her. She met them all without losing her humor and compassion. Paula’s hard work and dedication assisted in the transformation of thousands of individuals from all countries and all walks of life.

Truly, she has the know-how to accomplish big things and does so with a smile and single-mindedness of purpose. Any organization would be fortunate to work with her. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

Great Loss, Greater Love: The Art & Heart of Navigating Grief
Take a journey with Paula Meyer as she shares her strategies to cope with grief and loss. She will take you through the diagnosis of her husband Gary’s, throat cancer, until his passing 4 years later, and then two days following Gary’s death, the unexpected death of her ex-husband and father of her children, Brad. When she let go of her old life with Gary and began creating a new life without him, she began a year of travel through 11 countries, including two road trips across the US from Washington State to Florida and back, with different routes each way; a Caribbean cruise to Turks & Caicos, the Dominic Republic, and the Bahamas; and international travel to the UK, The Netherlands, Spain, France, Mexico, Australia, and Canada.

Along with his ashes, to spread a little wherever it felt right, she also took along Gary’s journal, a beautiful leather-bound journal with a dragonfly that she had bought for him when she was in London in 2015. He only used the first 32 pages, but within these pages, and his other journals, she found amazing words of love and inspiration that he wrote to himself during his battle with cancer.

These words helped her to mirror his experience, as he wrote to encourage himself about the loss of his health, which she then used to help rewrite her new life story. She took comfort and courage in his words, to support her in accepting his absence and moving forward into a new life without him.

As the year of travel ended, the global Covid-19 pandemic began along with major social unrest around the world. She was able to use the tools and strategies of navigating her grief with Gary, to deal with the grief brought on by the pandemic and social unrest. Along with everyone else, she was confronted with losing her freedom, losing her normal life, being thrown into the unknown as she was just getting her business off the ground, and waking up every day to the same reality. She realized that this was the same kind of grief that she experienced with Gary’s death.

The circumstances were different, but the mechanics were the same! Grief does not discriminate between tragedies and losses, nor does it care how big or small, it shows up regardless, making its chaotic entrance. While it wreaks havoc in our lives, there is always hope for a better future. Grief encourages us to look deeper within ourselves, to discover who we truly are, and in this illumination of self, we realize how powerful we are and can embrace the gifts that grief has to offer us.

In this adventurous tale around the globe, Paula begins each leg of the journey with a quote from Gary’s journals. Then she shares fun stories about her travel escapades, always finding the pearls from each experience.

Next, she shares a flashback from her life with Gary and the wisdom she’s gleaned from this past experience, that’s helped her to rewrite her future story and claim her new life! And finally, for you, she shares an idea to contemplate with a simple exercise, so that you can begin to heal too!

Ordinary Oneness: The Simplicity of Everyday Love, Grace and Hope
Our minds can repeat things over and over while also thinking about something else. Our brain is accustomed to linear and logical learning, which makes it feel in control. When it feels in control, it becomes comfortable and then tunes out! When our affirmations are done in this fashion, the brain excels at the repetition and when we don’t push our body to “feel into it.” The brain relaxes and quickly tunes out. Can you see why this might be happening with your affirmation practice?

Ordinary moments occur all the time, and we often overlook them because they don’t stand out. But everyday experiences offer significant gifts. As we notice them, they increase. It’s wondrous to realize that we don’t need to work hard to receive a sign. Miracles abound as we slow down, and what follows is peace. This book helps you recognize those tiny magical wonders so that you readily witness more possibilities in your life.
