Ashley Barnes

Awaken. Heal. Inspire

I'm a poet and author of two books, The Angel Inside: Inspiration to Connect with Your Inner Guidance and The Rising, as well as a blog of “Poetic Healing” and “Daily Bliss” messages. I rediscovered my passion for writing nearly 15 years after losing my mother to a long battle with cancer, using poetry as an outlet for healing, exploration, and discovery of my own deeper connection to my inner guidance and spiritual gifts.

Though my true love and gift is the written word, I'm also a certified coach and Reiki Master/Teacher who leads women’s circles, workshops, private energy coaching sessions, and holds space for the Facebook community “Awakening Angels Women’s Circle”. I'm the current President of Woman to Woman Kentuckiana and have enjoyed a professional career in leadership and organizational development for over fourteen years.  I'm also happily married with four children, a granddaughter, and too many pets to mention.  Although I live in southern Indiana, my heart is always in the magical sand and glorious green water of Siesta Key Beach, where I feel most inspired.
