Welcome home. If you have a big, bold, inspired life calling, then you are in the right place. What is a calling? Having a calling means that you have a message or a mission. My purpose and passion is to help you to activate that mission. I provide soulcare, sacred strategy, intuitive empowerment, and vision birthing for Big Vision Women.

The biggest barrier to you doing what you came to do is you.

Her aunt who raised her ran a de facto Bed and Breakfast known locally as “The White House.” My father is a journalist, minister and Ivy League grad.

Depending on availability, I offer bombshell breakthrough coaching scholarships for female veterans of the Iraqi wars. I also am an advocate of Eve Ensler’s VDay movement which aims to stop violence against women and girls worldwide.
What is your educational background?
My undergrad degree is from Sarah Lawrence College where I studied sociology (and writing) and I have an Master’s Degree from Vermont College of Fine Arts. I received my life coach certification from the American University of Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
Any guilty pleasures?
I indulge in all of the juicy joy that life has to offer. For example, I am an 80/20 vegan. That means that I eat completely clean 80% of the time and the other 20% I eat whatever vegetarian treats I want. The goal is to never feel guilt or shame for any of your choices. Yay!
What is the story with your name?
I love my name — but that wasn’t always the case. Abiola is a Nigerian Yoruba name meaning joy, born on the first or born into wealth depending on who you ask. It is a very common name in my parents’ country, Guyana, South America. Both of my parents claimed to have named me. There are at least 5 people in the United States also named “Abiola Abrams.”

My unique Sacred Breakthrough Coaching 9-step process is based on tapping into feminine power with life-changing healing modalities including: life mapping, guided meditation and visualization, emotional freedom technique, art therapy tools, cognitive behavioral work, spiritual support, and neuro-linguistic work..
What is your personal story?
After a 10 year relationship and a dream wedding, I learned the man I thought was my soulmate no longer wanted a monogamous relationship with me. I was recreating familial patterns of anxiety and infidelity. Anxiety and self-loathing manifested for me in several forms including people pleasing and disordered eating that started in my childhood when my family and I were bullied for not being “real Americans.” The cure for living a stunted half-life was to learn how to release suffering and choose to live as who I really am.
