Angela M / Holistic Health (@loveupliftedlady) • Instagram photos and videos

A loving mom of 3 that left nursing to become a Bioenergetic Practitioner @loveupliftedlady, is yet another person that creates and sends positive messages we love to see. She hopes to help people find the deeper reason for their health problems because the typical diagnose (DX) and prescription (RX) process was only providing a label for ailments, but she believes that bioenergetics can provide better long-term health.

Although it's an emerging field, many believe that by assessing and correcting the body's energy and communication systems, it can improve the body's own ability to self-heal and continue to stay healthy.

Find the root cause of health issues to achieve the best health through Full Spectrum Wellness and ask this expert more questions by checking out her Instagram account. 

With content like motivational fitness/workout reels and posts, funny things, and more like her podcast on Spotify, @loveupliftedlady is bringing hope to healing in more ways than one!

  • Mari Neli – Author

Mari Neli (@marinelistory) • Instagram photos and videos

We want to introduce everyone to our final Instagram account, representing hope for millions of survivors of traumatic events. 

This loving mother of 4 has triumphed over circumstances that many people do not, but her inspiring life story is not the only reason we adore @marinelistory. 

As a survivor of abuse myself, I recognize the energy it takes to be happy doesn't always come easily. However, with hope and a smile like the one found on post after post from her page comes a sense of "I can do that too," and that my friend shows the incredible power which we all possess to encourage one another to be better tomorrow than we were or had yesterday. 

Mari Neli is a cancer and abuse survivor. Her book entitled; I Broke the Chain: "An American Dream" or The Perfect Lie?, can be found on Amazon and is an emotional joyride of a horrific abuse-filled childhood to a hopeful future thriving with happiness. 

We want to state that these accounts have made our list for simply representing hope in various manors and are not affiliated with Flipflops2chanel (FF2C) for any business or personal gains purposes whatsoever.
