Hi! My name is Tenley Hardin, and I am a Certified Professional Life Coach, specializing in Intuition and Life Purpose coaching. I empower clients to listen to their intuition, so that they may discover their true purpose and calling. I coach clients who desire greater direction, motivation, and confidence.
As a high school and college English teacher for over eight years, I held a great passion for helping my students unlock their potential. Witnessing their “ah-ha” moments inspired me to become a life coach. Although I was currently attending a Ph.D. program in Cultural Studies at the time, I knew that I had to listen to my intuition and follow my gut. I left the Ph.D. program and attended a year-long certification program at the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching, where I learned Core Energy life coaching techniques based on Energy Leadership. I also completed training to become an Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner, where I use the Energy Leadership Assessment developed by Bruce D Schneider. The Energy Leadership Index Assessment is based on the seven levels of energy and measures where and how your energy is either helping you or holding you back.
I moved to Los Angeles, California in 2011, where I opened Limitless Heart Life Coaching, LLC, so I can help inspire and empower people to live with passion and purpose. I now work with authentic clients who are willing to explore their thoughts, feelings, and emotions deeply, so that they can gain awareness and awaken the light from within. While I’ll always be an ‘east-coaster’ at heart, I absolutely love living by the beach. When I’m not busy living my dream as a life coach and educator, I am hiking, doing yoga, and spending time with family, friends, and my dog, Boston.

What Is a Limitless Heart?
A limitless heart means just that -- a heart with no limits. Great scholars, philosophers, and of course, the enlightened, Jesus, Buddha, and Lao Tzu, have spoken about living with a limitless heart, if only because, at the end of the day, a limitless heart is truly what brings us the most joy, peace, and bliss. By opening your heart to the endless possibilities that abound, you allow for greater goodness to literally pour into your life. In doing so, you can live with great passion and depth, as opposed to the often passive and numbing existence many of us have grown accustomed to and accepted as our fates.
Jesus and Buddha sought to capture hearts and not minds, because they knew that the heart was the only path to true enlightenment--to true Zen. Yes, we should all "guard and protect our hearts," but not with the same guardedness that has prevented us from discovering our truths and passions. Such walls have been built because we have been hurt, disappointed, and saddened, but each time we place a stone on those 'walls,' we lose a little of ourselves every day, pieces of us just chipping away slowly, until we feel like we are nothing.
While opening your heart might seem like a big risk, one that only makes you feel more vulnerable to those who prey and manipulate out of fear, the ultimate reward of living directly from your heart is worth it. You live from your soul--from the place that speaks to you at times when you need it the most. When you live with an open heart, you surrender, allow, receive, accept, and trust your greatest asset: your intuition. For, with intuition, anything, and I mean, anything is possible. Pain can be eradicated. Fear can be destroyed. Sadness can be wiped away. The heart is that powerful, but only if you allow it to breathe in the light of the universe and all the power that comes with it.
You are perfect in creation, because you have a perfect heart derived from a perfect universal source. If you truly believe in this, your heart will guide you exactly where you need to be at exactly the right time to exactly the right person. So, open your heart, discover your soul, hear the whispers of your intuition, and live the limitless life you were destined to live!
