Alpha Chick, Mal Duane, Shares Secrets for Moving from Pain to Power

Today I have the great pleasure of being the host on Day 14 of the Virtual Blog Tour of author Mal Duane whose book Alpha Chick: Five Steps for Moving from Pain to Power launched on Amazon last Tuesday February 14, 2012.


Mal Duane has triumphed over devastating life challenges to become an Alpha Chick extraordinaire. After having struggled with alcoholism as a young woman, Mal now has a dream marriage, a highly-successful business, and as a certified Professional Recovery Coach, is deeply involved with helping women discover and use their connection with the divine power to redefine their lives and step away from their pain. She also serves clients through the multi-million dollar real estate company that she built from scratch. As she strongly believes in educating women, she built a school in Konjila, West Africa that educates a hundred students annually, and created Holly’s Gift, an educational assistance fund, which will receive proceeds from the sale of each copy of Alpha Chick.


Alpha Chick, Five Steps for Moving from Pain to Power is a model for any woman who dreams of having happiness, success, and fulfi

It clearly guides the reader step-by-step in the process of becoming her own unique brand of Alpha Chick, using Mal’s simple 5-step formula for self-worth, freedom and transformation. The book is coming to Amazon on Tuesday February 14th, 2012 – Valentine’s Day. Mal says, “I chose Valentine’s Day because I wanted women to give themselves the gift of self-love on that day.”

Yesterday, Mal visited Shelagh Jones at, where she shared her recent podcast interview with Mal about her story and her new book Alpha Chick: Five Steps for Moving from Pain to Power.

Today, I’d like to share with you a recent interview I had with Mal when I got to ask her some questions on the subject of spiritual practices, self-love and personal power. I hope you enjoy it.


Krystalya Marie’: What different forms of Spiritual Practice do you find helpful for most women you work with and why?

Mal Duane: I love meditation for centering and discovering out true voice. I utilize prayer or reading spiritual material for enhancing my awareness to my divine guidance. I think when we plant the right seed in the garden; we get the blossoms we are looking for. Thirdly, I recommend journaling. It is amazing when we write things on paper, the truth flows. Releasing the truth about how we feel or what we want to attract into our lives liberates our consciousness to go to work on our behalf. All three ultimately bring us to the same place of identifying who we really are and releasing our limited beliefs.

Krystalya Marie’: How important is Self-Love to becoming an Alpha Chick and why?

Mal Duane: Self-love/self-esteem is the root for personal transformation. Everything in life is tied to how we think about ourselves. Nothing is more important for women than to work on their self-love. When we truly embrace who we are, we become better partners in all the other relationships we build in life. You have to have something in order to give it away. This includes love. Once we learn to love ourselves every other aspect of our being changes. Our health, our attitude and our appreciation come into alignment with self-love. Unfortunately there are so many forms of media that work against us with false imagery of success and fulfillment. All that we need to transform ourselves will come from within.

Krystalya Marie’: What are the top 5 things a woman needs to do to “Discover and Maintain Their Own Personal Power”?

Mal Duane: I think by using the five steps of F-A-I-T-H women are able to recognize their connection to a higher consciousness, identify their negative behaviors and thoughts as well as set new intentions for positive actions steps. When women really embrace their power they need to start giving away their knowledge to those in need. The five steps are:

Focus: Go within through a spiritual practice of meditation or prayer to connect with the divine guidance within

Acceptance and Attitude: When you accept your past mistakes and suffering, you free yourself from the bondage of a personal history that no longer has any bearing on who you are. As you leave the past your attitude starts to change about your present.

Identification and Intention: You identify your negative behaviors that block your potential and set new intentions for positive action. When you consciously evaluate where you need to make changes, you create a plan for positive transformation.

Thoughts: Your mind can only hold one thought at a time, so why not make it a good one. Our thoughts are magnets for what we want to attract in our lives. It is imperative to pay attention to what you think about.

Healing and Helping: Once you restore yourself to the divine being you are meant to be, experiencing self-love and joy daily in your life, you need to seek out others that are suffering and share your strength and knowledge with them. To keep your power, you must give it away.
