For most of her life, Amanda Johnson excelled at being “the good girl.” 

She was a stellar student who knew how to play by the rules, whether that was in school, at church, or with friends or family. 

She implicitly understood what was acceptable, and what wasn’t, so she followed the prescription for a successful life: Go to college, major in something respectable and useful, get a good job, get married, have 2 children, get an MBA, move up the career ladder.

Until one day, almost like coming out of a coma, she said she “woke up in the middle of a life.” She’d built an entire life, and wasn’t sure how she’d done it, or whether she’d truly chosen any of it consciously.

And then the real work began.

Listen in as Amanda and Rachel get into…

Amanda Johnson is your typical high-energy, over-achieving, perfectionist, people pleaser type who, by all accounts, looked great on paper, but wasn’t feeling a whole lot of anything for a long time. After years of building a successful career in the marketing world, Amanda had a wake up call in the form of a full blown spiritual awakening and started questioning pretty much every facet of her life. After coaching with Rachel, and working for the past several years toward calling in more authenticity and alignment, Amanda’s gifts came online in a big way. 

Recently, Amanda made some serious changes to her life, including pivoting away from her corporate life to launch Heartspark, an intuitively based energy work and life purpose coaching business. Amanda is trained in reiki, completed iPEC’s coach training program and loves questioning the mysteries of the universe. When Amanda isn’t working with clients or chasing her two little boys around, she loves to spend hours talking to her friends and family about signs, dreams and hopeless romantic things, traveling to far off places, reading 1,000 books all at the same time and dipping her toes in the ocean as much as possible (preferably in San Diego!) She’s all about living her life with an open heart, and hopes she can inspire you to do the same.

You can find her at and @heartsparksoul on Instagram.

And just for Clarity on Fire listeners, Amanda is offering the first 10 people who book a classic Heartspark Session 20% off (through the end of June, or until all spots are taken, whichever comes first) with code KRACHEL.

  3. Amanda, I was fastening my umbrella as you talked about the little girl in the heart-covered outfit, and right as you said the word ‘hearts’ I saw the little heart I drew onto the umbrella fastener ages ago. It’s worn, but still there. 🙂 Thanks for the great interview!
