MHL: What does freedom mean to you?
Olga Bochareva: For me true freedom is emotional freedom, the liberty to be yourself, speak your mind and make choices based on your highest truth as opposed to the limiting beliefs society has set on you.
MHL: How do you prioritise freedom in your life?
Olga Bochareva: I believe freedom has always been one of my core values. Born and raised in Russia, I always wanted to work and travel abroad. In 2002 I applied for a job teaching math in a middle school in Houston, Texas and got it! I was just 21 but I have made a life for myself here now and Houston is definitely my home.
These days I fill that need for travel with a full vacation calendar. My husband and I take vacations 3-4 times a year and a long international trip every summer. Last year we went to Italy, it was Russia the year before.
MHL: Tell me about your journey to create this sort of freedom in your life.
Olga Bochareva: My life is in a great place right now, but looking back it has been a real journey to get here.
Six years ago I was teaching in a high school, working full time and I was in a pretty bad marriage. I’m not sure I realised at the time just how unhappy I was.
I discovered Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), a technique that uses the body’s energy meridians to create balance in the body’s energy system and relieve certain types of pain. I started getting extraordinary results for myself.
My whole outlook on life started changing. I couldn’t keep EFT to myself! It began with me teaching EFT to my friends and family. They got amazing results when nothing else seemed to work. I got officially certified as an EFT practitioner in 2013 and started working with clients. My then-husband was very resistant to the idea of me quitting teaching to work with EFT clients full time. He had a very set mindset, so he had a hard time being supportive of my new venture.
When I had my second daughter I chose to have a fully unmedicated birth. It was an intense experience that actually gave me a lot of courage to trust myself. I didn’t know it then, but I was going to really need that courage!
First my Mom, then my daughter, were diagnosed with cancer. Both have recovered and are healthy now, but the emotional toll of that experience ran deep.
My marriage fell apart in 2017. It threw me into a whole new life. It was an opportunity for a new perspective on the world. I needed to find my feet again. Finances were rough, what with the divorce and a kid going through chemo. I was paying all the bills as a single mother.
MHL: With all this turbulence in your life, how did you come to be teaching EFT as a tool for finding love?
Olga Bochreva: It came through my own experience. I had tried long and hard to save my marriage. But it didn’t work.
Going through a divorce shakes you to your very core. There are feelings of loss and devastation, of doubting myself, the fear of loneliness. I pulled myself through to the other side of my heartbreak, consciously, using EFT.
Six months after my divorce I met my soulmate. He is everything I ever wanted in a man (I wrote it all down before I met him, so it was easy to recognise the match). It felt as though he heard me calling and arrived! My new life brings me so much happiness and it hurts to know that there are women out there stuck in that heartbreaking post-breakup place. I have a tool that gets results and will bring them happiness too. I knew I had to share it, I can’t leave these women there! When she’s ready to learn from her experience and find a healthier and happier relationship – I am there!
My ‘Tap into Love’ program is the result of 6+ years of both personal experience and professional work with clients. It’s a reverse engineered process designed to help conscious women bring in a right-for-her partner into her life.
My work does not focus on ‘what to say, so he’ll text you back’ or ‘3 things you can do, to make him fall in love with you’, but rather by understanding what made you attract the partners you did, and changing that.
As a result you fall in love with yourself, you come home to a truer version of you. Being a higher version of you attracts a partner who is aligned with the true you on a deep and beautiful level. The type of relationship where 1+ 1= 100, it not only makes you two happier, but also make this planet a better place.
MHL: How do you describe your life now?
Olga Bochareva: My life brings me so much happiness right now, both my husband and I run our own businesses, which gives us the flexibility to take days or weeks off as we need. We’re not constantly moving about, we have our solid home base. We have created a sense of freedom and fulfilment in our lives nonetheless by escaping boring jobs and consciously choosing a freedom mindset.
MHL: Is EFT only effective for finding love? What advice would you have for women who are feeling trapped and unispired?
Olga Bochareva: My best advice is: conquer your fears. Everything you ever wanted is on the other side of it. EFT is a powerful tool for releasing fears as well as finding love.
Learn to let go. Make “Change” your middle name. Get curious about your internal limitations, as you release them your life and relationships improve.
Well, how beautiful is that story?!
From feeling trapped and under the pump to make her marriage work and supporting loved ones through the horror of cancer treatments to creating a life that aligned with soul purpose with the added bonus of freedom to enrich her life with travel. Olga’s Tap Into Love method is a personal coaching program that you can do online from anywhere in the world. It teaches you how to harness the power of EFT to find love and become the love you are seeking.
Freedom comes from within, some people tap into it by travelling far and wide, others tap in to it by lifting themselves out of the mindset that they were raised with, leaving behind structured work environments and being brave in the new world of creating income in alignment with a consciously designed lifestyle.
