Julie Hoyle


Julie is a personal growth teacher, spiritual counselor, and artist. She writes for a number of leading Mind-Body-Spirit magazines, including Tiny Buddha, Mind-Body-Green and All-Things-Healing. Happily married and a yoga enthusiast, she has lived in Italy, India, the U.S. and the Ukraine and she currently calls the Bahamas home.

While professionally trained as an art teacher, her deeper purpose began revealing itself following a radical awakening and shift of consciousness in 1989. Completely life-changing, this pivotal event is detailed in 'An Awakened Life- A Journey of Transformation.'

Having gone through a radical shift, she is able to see where a client is stuck and what can be done to dissolve old patterns. Through one-on-one counseling, life purpose readings and online courses, she supports people to transform self-limiting beliefs, access innate gifts, skills and talents and re-orient their lives.

Specializing in working with people in healing, intuitive and creative fields, Julie helps clients to take their business or personal goals to the next level. She also loves connecting with new clients who are ready to unearth their gifts and discover what their purpose is.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
In terms of serious writing, I started unexpectedly in 2007. At the time I was on a train heading from London to Nottingham in the UK. I was dismayed that I had nothing to read. Then I remembered I had picked up a free magazine in a Mind-Body-Spirit store, which I had stuffed into one of my bags. I dug around, pulled it out and saw that the magazine was called, 'Connections.' I settled in and began reading an article written by Barbara Brennen, an American healer who wrote the book, 'Hands of Light.' In the article, Barbara detailed the importance of owning one's creative energy and utilizing it purposefully. Something inside me clicked. I heard an inner voice clearly state, "You can do this. You can write articles and essays that inspire people." There was so much power and urgency in the voice and such a quality of pure knowing that I did not think twice. I had nothing to write on, so I borrowed a pencil, opened up a paper napkin and began drafting my first article. A few days later, after tweaking and editing, I sent the article, titled 'Aligning With the Truth of Who you Are', to the editor of Connections. A short while later, the editor wrote back saying he wanted to use the article. Now I write for a dozen or more magazines. I have also written two e-books and created several online courses.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Once I started writing, several friends suggested that self publishing would be the fastest and easiest way to go. Smashwords was recommended several times. What I liked most about Smashwords was the level of support indie authors received, so from that point on it was an easy decision.
