From Terri....



I believe that life is a series of opportunities to discover who you are. And I believe that you being here now is one of those opportunities.

As a spiritual coach, wife, mom, step-mom, and former Miss U.S.A., I have had many opportunities to find out who I am. However, I had no idea of who I really was or what I believed because I was buried beneath societal programming of what I thought I "should be." As a result, I gave away my power, shut down my creativity, and then found myself living in anger and mediocrity. I felt separate from the world around me.
It wasn’t until I looked deep into my heart to find out who I am and what I truly believe that I discovered the love I had been searching for my whole life. I found that love when I found me. And as a result, I discovered a gift to share with the world around me.

My gift is to help you discover and embrace your uniqueness so that you may live your life filled with creativity, distinction, and unconditional love. My book, Message Sent , can help you with this. It is your guide to finding out who you are and what you believe so that you may live your life with love, passion, and authenticity. My CD, Message Sent, Meditations for Retrieving the Gift of Love , takes you deeper into a healing space. The five meditations guide you gently, step-by-step, helping you release pain, anger, and blame, so that you may connect to the love within you in all of life's situations.

In my newsletter , I share thoughts and tools to help you retrieve the love from within you. There is also a special area for the spiritual family. We’ll look at how our spouses, parents, children, and friends are gifts to us on our spiritual journeys.

I believe you are a gift to the world. That’s why I feel you are here. You are ready to discover and honor the remarkable you. You are ready to unleash the gift that is inside of you. You are ready to embrace the wonderful you. Thank you for being here and for being you!

With love and light,

Terri Amos is a spiritual coach, motivational speaker, wife, mother and step-mom. She is also a former Miss USA and television host.

Representing the state of Arkansas, Terri won the title of Miss USA in 1982. Then, after studying journalism, she went on to become a writer and field producer for a west coast news station and eventually became a spokeswoman for Mazda.

It was at that time that a new entertainment channel, Movietime, ( now known as the E! Channel ) was just taking hold in Los Angeles. Soon, Terri was chosen as their flagship news anchor, conducting celebrity interviews and covering such prestigious events as the Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Awards.

Feeling the need to be with her family, Terri left the entertainment industry to be a fulltime mother. But it was her father's illness and his ultimate death that became the catalysts for massive changes in her life, career and future.

"I was the son he never had," Terri explains, "and as I watched him unravel, first emotionally, and then physically, I recognized the parts of him that had become parts of me."

Realizing that she had serious anger issues, Terri vowed to undo the behaviors that were affecting her role as a wife and mother. Finding herself without the tools to understand or manage her behavior, she put herself on a no-going-back program of traditional therapy, which led her to a journey of inner excavation and spiritual seeking.

Terri found her passion when she began to study energetic healing, meditation, and spiritual consulting at Clearsight, a clairvoyant school in Santa Monica, CA, and then completed their graduate and ministerial programs.

During this time of intensive and determined self-work, Terri and her family began to experience a powerfully positive shift in their lives, relationships and family harmony. Buoyed by her emotional growth and encouraged by her family and peers, Terri became a spiritual consultant and coach, and eventually, an author and a teacher.

It was on her path to self-discovery, self-acceptance, and true authenticity that Terri was guided through meditation to share the knowledge she was experiencing first hand in a unique journal that is spiritual, practical, revelatory and prescriptive. Titled, Message Sent, the book chronicles her day-to-day journey of challenges and healing with love, candor and humor. In addition, she offers the reader the benefit of her insight and inspirations and shares the tools she found helpful to herself.

A nurturing and accomplished speaker, Terri shares her message with audiences in a warm, loving and entertaining fashion, with quick wit, a ready smile and a genuine hug or pat on the back for everyone in the room.

Terri is truly authentic, a quality she had to work hard to retrieve in all aspects of her life, but nonetheless, one that began revealing itself as her trademark early on...

(Flashback - Miss USA Competition, top 12 question)

So what do you do in Cabot, Arkansas, on a Saturday night?

In the summer, we cruise up and down Main Street. Then we go to the Tastee Freeze, sit on the back of my friend's pickup truck, he plays the banjo, and we drink a little beer and dip a little Skoal. It's a real good time.

Terri won with a true and authentic response. It was her desire for complete authenticity that she finally released her anger and found freedom within herself. And as a result, she won back her family. Now, she has a career in the spiritual and self-help arena, helping and coaching others to retrieve their own winning spirits.

"Authenticity = Freedom," so says Terri Amos. "Finally," she says, "I am free because I found me!"




In Message Sent Terri Amos takes the reader on a journey to discovering a wondrous inner truth: the love you have been seeking has been there all the time. You find the love when you find you. Her journey began when she had just been named Miss USA of 1982. Instead of the joy she expected to feel, there was only emptiness. She had lived her life trying to be everything people thought she should be and in the process she had lost herself. She continued this path of denying herself with her marriage and her family....until she discovered the gift of change.


Through deep introspection Terri learned to retrieve the love within and now shares the gift of her discovery with the world. Message Sent teaches you how to live every day, fully, with passion, authenticity, and love. Using her book as a guide, you will find:
