As a young child, Anita C. Powell began looking into her connection with God. The emptiness in her heart fueled her search, which seemed fruitless.
When Anita reached adulthood, she explored various religious and spiritual ideologies in her quest to understand her relationship with the Creator. In the 1980s, she entered a Unity Church in Detroit, Michigan. It was then that she knew her Spiritual path, and it was the realm of Metaphysics. She has continued looking inward ever since.
In 1998, after serving 19 years with the Michigan Department of Corrections and while her twin girls were seniors at Western Michigan University, Anita left her employer on a wing and a prayer and continued her search, which resulted in her mantra: TAPN2U, Live LIFE from the Inside Out.
Subsequently, Anita experienced a severe, seven-year hardship. It was after those seven years that she realized the hardship was due to her lack of faith. Because she was looking at what she didn’t have, she was too blind to see how she was the lily and the sparrow, being loved and cared for. It was then that Anita began to understand the quest of our heart is for happiness––it happens when we move beyond positive thinking to simply BE-ing positive that the destination IS in our favor, and for this we give thanks. We let it be so, and so it IS!!!
Anita is now an ordained Metaphysical Minister, having received her ordination and practitioner diploma from the International Metaphysical Ministry University Seminary. She earned her Master of Metaphysical Science, M.Msc., from the University of Metaphysics, and is a self-reliant Certified TAPN2U Life Coach/Teacher, as well as a poet and Michigan Unemployment Appeals Advocate for the unemployed worker. In addition, she is the founder of Anita C. Powell, LLC, and Creative Director of Engai Creative Thought Academy. Coined the ALC (Amazing Life Coach), Anita is creator and developer of the TAPN2U Treasure Map experience and TAPN2U Self Recovery Cards. Her message is to move beyond positive thinking to simply BE-ing positive––positive to know it doesn’t matter what the circumstance, the situation, or the fear you feel. Recognize and realize the destination IS in your Favor – TAPN2U.
