About Me

Hi, My name is Danielle K Howell “DKHealthy1”. Ever since I was a young child, I knew that I had a higher calling to help others. I actually heard my name being called by a loud voice at the age of 10 and my father told me that it was time for him and my mother to tell me my calling. My parents at that time were what I thought… “religious fanatics” but they didn’t go to church. I was young and didn’t quite understand their “home church services” but that night when I heard that loud voice call my name, my life would never be the same.

Growing up, I was a very shy little girl, never felt as though I fit in. Never wanted to join a clique and had only a handful of friends. I also had a secret that no one but my parents knew. I was able to interpret dreams. My parents would tell me their dreams and I would interpret them. I even helped my Aunt “hit” the “number” because of my dream interpretation. I kept my secret to myself and never told any of my friends. I thought it was cool but a little weird at the same time. As I grew, so did my dream interpretation skills, as a matter of fact, one day my mother told me her dream and I knew that it meant she was going to die but I couldn’t bring myself to tell her that. Sure enough, without me having any inkling that she was sick, my mother passed away at the age of 38. I was only 15.

After experiencing such a trauma, I literally started living life on the edge. I drank, I smoked and partied like it was going out of style. I met a guy who would later become my daugther’s father and lo and behold I became a mother at the age of 18. I barely had enough sense or money at that time to take care of myself, how in the world could I take care of a child? I was headed in a downward spiral and so was my health. I developed Chronic High Blood Pressure, my baby was born at only 3lbs 2oz because of my hypertension. I constantly had headaches, I was overweight, tired all the time and I really didn’t care about my life or anyone else’s. I was lost. Needless to say, my daughter’s father and I didn’t stay together, and after him I found myself in abusive relationships… one after the other. As the years went on, I started feeling as though I needed help. I started attending church. That actually helped for a while. I found out that I was somebody special. People liked me and I felt apart of a group. However, no matter how happy I was at church, when I got home, the happiness faded. I felt trapped again. I continued to go to church every now and then but still battled with addictions and alcoholism. Over time as I felt the urge to improve my life, I started keeping a journal to help me express my thoughts and feelings. I started taking better care of my health and I started caring more about myself.

Fast forward to today, I am currently 40 years old if you are reading this in the year 2014 and I am if I do say so myself… a success story. Yes a lot more happened in between this paragraph and the last, but you will have to wait for my book to read the rest :-) So, I went on to graduate college with a Sociology Degree from Queens College, I have studied Nutrition & Exercise Sciences. I’ve worked for the Department of Education as a Special Education Teacher, I have organized Walk-A Thons, Taught Exercise Classes, Implemented, Organized and Ran Health & wellness Ministries, Started my First Business by the age of 25, Won Trips for Being Amongst the Top Producers in My Company, Inspired Others To Start Their Own Businesses, Started Running Clubs, Volunteered my time with Numerous Organizations, and so much more.  I have helped countless people get on track with their health by inspiring them to lose weight, run their first race, start a fitness program, start a business, stay motivated and so much more. I empower my clients to pass state exams, make career changes, improve their family situations, invite more money into their lives etc! My life has made a total turnaround… How you ask? Because I found the TRUTH. You shall know the TRUTH and the TRUTH shall set you FREE!! I have been SET FREE by the renewing of my MIND and No this is not about RELIGION but I am here to say that there is a Higher Being that LIVES In us, Around us and  works Through us. A BEING that some may call GOD, others call SPIRIT. Whatever you call IT… IT is TRUTH, IT is LIFE and IT JUST IS!! And I discovered that because GOD IS… I AM also!! This may not make sense to you or maybe it does. I didn’t understand it at first until I started living in it. Remember I said that I used to interpret dreams? Well all those years I was drowning that gift I possessed with drugs and alcohol, I was living in HELL. When I gave those things of the WORLD up, I started to LIVE again.  I received my gifts and my talents back and more. I was able to do things that I never thought was possible. I began to share my life with others on a spiritual level. I started really studying the Bible, religious texts, motivational texts, Mindset books and found out that they were basically all the same. They all have the same message within their pages. LOVE, FAITH & ACTION. I started studying how the mind works and why we as humans do the things that we do. I started realizing so much about life and eventually everything in my LIFE CHANGED and I am here to help you change YOUR LIFE.! If you are religious, that’s fine, if you are spiritual, that’s fine, if you have no feelings about those sorts of things PERIOD that’s fine as well. This site is not about any of that, it’s about accessing the POWER that YOU ALREADY POSSESS. This is what I have learned and this is now what I TEACH.
