This is a global first.

Power Intelligence - the intelligence of the future

In 1988, Dr. Brenda coined the term Power Intelligence to denote how we manage and master our power and potential on physical, mental emotional, and spiritual levels and create the world we live in. Power Intelligence can also be seen as energy intelligence or consciousness intelligence.  In 2002 she presented a paper on PI at the International Psychology Conference with the title, Power Intelligence the first book on Power Intelligence was published in 2002 with the title Power Intelligence -  Energizing People and Organizations and creating prosperity. Various books on Power intelligence have since been published and the Power Intelligence Success Profile (PISP), is soon to be launched.

Reinventing myself and redefining my calling

At the pinnacle of my career, I was left paralyzed after a serious accident in which various neck vertebrae were shattered. The biggest wake-up call was when the doctors told me that after many weeks, I had not begun to heal. The reason was that I was so burned out, the DNA in each cell, responsible for growth and healing, did not have the energy to duplicate. This not only meant that I was not healing, it meant that I was slowly dying. The shock of this discovery changed my life forever. 

It became evident that I had overspent and depleted my life force by working too hard and taking care of others. This needed to stop if I ever wanted to heal and even walk again. I needed to take back my power wrongly invested in projects and people, and not taking care of myself. Although the term power Intelligence was coined earlier, PI now came to life as I used all the skills and tools in the book Power Intelligence, to not only heal my depleted DNA but to also rediscover who I was as my authentic self, what my true calling and purpose were and how to redefine and redesign a new life after the accident. A let go of many relationships and things that were important to me at that time. I knew I needed to not only change my whole mindset but also embark on a new path -  a spiritual path. Slowly my energies were restored and I began to heal.


This not only taught me to set boundaries but to also keep negative and destructive people and processes out of my personal space. Not only did I begin to heal, but the newfound Power Intelligence mindset, skills, and tools also slowed down the aging process.    

It took nearly a year to heal and to learn to walk again. During this time in traction, I decided to turn it into an opportunity to only re-invent myself but to also use the time for further research and development. I focussed on the importance of the role that our original, authentic, DNA blueprint plays in our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health and well-being. This was based on the findings of the Human Genome Project that our DNA is not fixed but can change, develop, and be maximized. This means that we all have the ability to not only heal our DNA, but with a higher level of consciousness, and a new mindset that includes the right tools and skills, we can recover the power and potential of our authentic self encoded in our original DNA blueprint. 

During this time it became evident that we all have an authentic blueprint of health, wealth, happiness, and success encoded as a DNA success print in every cell of our body. By re-inventing myself, I not only overcame my injuries but also redefined my calling, purpose, and commitment to the service of the greater good and of all people. It was my privilege to publish all this information in the books, New Success DNA, New Leadership DNA, and Power Intelligence - harnessing the power of the miracle mind. Since then many other books have followed. 

Now, I am re-entering the marketplace with all this new, cutting-edge information, that include books, training courses, presentations, and assessment and to be of service to individuals, groups, teams, companies, organizations, and leaders, who are ready to take the leap into a future of infinite possibilities. 


The future looks very bright. You are invited to join us on this exciting journey with me that promises to be an adventure.
