The LifeQuake Miracle Dr. Toni Galardi
My LifeQuake Story
I think of my life and everyone’s life I touch as a myth. Mythic stories are so much more interesting to me than victim stories or even fairy tales. My mythic story as it applies to my work in helping you through major life transitions, I named LifeQuake when I was just 30 years old and in a massive transition myself. I had left behind a marriage, a beautiful home, a lucrative clinical practice, and a religious structure that had all provided a safe container… for awhile.
But the beginning of my LifeQuake myth actually started 9 years earlier when I was working on skid row with addicts. It was my first job after college and after six months there, I knew I should leave. Things were getting more violent on the street outside our building and even more importantly, I didn’t love my job. I was an administrator and it wasn’t the right fit but I didn’t know what the RIGHT fit was. I didn’t want to rely on my fiancé economically, so I started pressuring my boss to get a security guard which he refused to do.
About a week later, a junkie got through screening high on crack. I didn’t know he was high but he was so disruptive I tried to order him out of the building and he responded by trying to strangle me to death. This was my first near fatal experience. There would be two more by the time I was 40, each time at critical junctures when I needed to make a change and ignored the signs.
My heroine’s journey has been one of learning to release attachments to external identities for security. Returning back to that transitional time at age 30, my mission to help people prepare for transition before a catastrophic crisis hits, came when I least expected it. I was in a dark night of the soul. So, if you are in one now, know this. When you surrender completely who you think you are to your version of higher wisdom, be it God or the Quantum Field of Potentiality, magic can happen.
I didn’t know what I was meant to do with my life after leaving every shred of security I knew, so I chose to do almost nothing but meditate every day. One day in meditation, this seven – stage model for moving through what I came to call LifeQuakes, was downloaded through my psyche. I knew there was a link between people facing their fear of change and finding their life purpose, but it was our dear Mother Earth herself who showed me in a dream that humanity’s survival was dependent on each individual engaging their full potential. This became the 7th stage of my model: once you embody through the tools of the first six stages that change brings gain not loss and discover what you are here to do next, it is imperative to become an agent of change for the world. This morphed into what I now call The LifeQuake Repurposing Method, a roadmap and tool box through the unknown.
In 2009, I authored the very first edition of a book I entitled The LifeQuake Phenomenon: how to thrive, not just survive in times of personal and global upheaval. Ahead of its time, I shared how vitally important expressing your true purpose is to your immune system, and I gave a lot of clinical data on what altruism or humanitarianism can do for your immune system.
In 2019, I decided to do an update of this book with the newest neuroscience on change mastery and resilience as well as include more interviews with thought influencers who had been through a LifeQuake and were now expressing their mission and joy filled purpose. That book, published in July of 2020 is called The LifeQuake Miracle: Awakening to Your True Purpose in Times of Personal and Global Upheaval.
For those who prefer to hold a book in your hands, it is available in hard cover and Kindle on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I found with my first book that readers commented that over the past 10 years, they purchased the paper back version twice from wear and tear, so it’s not a bad investment.
On this site, however, you can purchase a downloadable e book version along with The LifeQuake Repurposing Roadmap Guided Meditations Mp3s. This is your LifeQuake Preparedness Kit. Further, there is also a complimentary, bonus 7 hour audio course if you sign up for the membership site too. I am creating an online course that will take you through the 7stages of The LifeQuake Repurposing Model in a video format as well so stay tuned…
You will also find my free blog and Ask the LIfeQuake Doctor advice column to support you on your mythic LifeQuake journey in the blog section. Please reach out and share with me any feedback or questions your might have of The LifeQuake Doctor. I want to hear from you.
I deeply believe that your personal investment in your transformation can shift our planet away from being crisis driven, into a place where everyone thrives. My intention for you is to have the courage to answer the highest call of your soul. The world is waiting for your gifts!

The LifeQuake Miracle is an invaluable and potent antidote for the internal and external chaos we are experiencing on a collective level. Dr. Toni’s voice is one of wisdom and guidance. Her “toolbox” offers practical techniques to help navigate these uncertain times with grace and ease. The book serves as a soothing balm and a comfort to the soul, as well as a cultivator for self-awareness, inner reflection, and proactive growth. She offers everyday lifestyle practices that focus our attention to our inner emotional landscape as we process and release what no longer serves us, in the healthiest way possible. She helps us rewire our old negative patterns by using effective strategies for facilitating peace and calm throughout each day. The book has some very deep, yet highly accessible concepts. The end of each chapter offers developmental steps, which help us put the concepts into action. As I worked through this book, and through my own inner landscape, I found myself peeling back layers of the onion, breaking through old emotions, and old ways of defining myself, in order to get to my true and authentic voice. As a result, I have been able to access my voice and creativity on a whole other level. This book asks us to be open and observant. It asks us to be creative, and to be true. It asks us to move with the changes, like a dance, not a fight. It helps us create the “blueprints” for the life we are meant to live.

I really enjoyed reading this book. The author was so relatable that I could hear her voice as she wrote about experiences that I too have had. It was refreshing to learn about the vulnerabilities of a psychotherapist. The book has many great insights and tools to use which have been helpful for me. I am currently going through significant transitions in my life and will surely refer back to this book.
Loved this book. I’m a staff minister at a church and quoted a passage during our Sunday service. I’m so impressed with Dr. Galardi’s wisdom, knowledge and passion for helping and inspiring others. I highly recommend this book to anyone navigating challenges and growth.

Dr. Toni Galardi has been a professional speaker and career transitions expert for over twenty-five years on the subject of change mastery, resilience and discovering your true purpose to groups as diverse as Xerox, Sony, and the National Association of Women in Business. In 1990, she coined the term LifeQuake to describe the birthing pains of each individual and humanity as a whole waking up to the next level of our evolution.
Ahead of her time, in 1995, Dr. Galardi designed a holistic, evolutionary model rooted in the neuroscience of mastering change that connected one’s ability to awaken and make changes pre-emptively on the personal level with our very global survival. She called it The LifeQuake Repurposing Roadmap that then became a ground breaking book published originally in 2010 as The LifeQuake Phenomenon: How to Thrive (not just survive) in Times of Personal and Global Upheaval.
Her mission through The LifeQuake Repurposing Roadmap is to assist organizations and individuals globally in preparing for their next chapter through “resilient restructuring” while stopping the chronic pattern of waiting until a major crisis hits.
With humor and grace, she refers to herself as “the recovering poster child for the change impaired” because it took three near fatal experiences in her own life for her to figure out there was another way to make changes.
In addition to her speaking engagements, Dr. Galardi has been a frequent guest expert on change mastery and resilience in times of economic crisis and natural disasters with a wide range of regional, national and international media outlets that includes ABC , Fox, Gaia TV and numerous radio and podcasts. Dr. Galardi is also a futurist who predicted two years ago, a massive economic collapse and societal rebirth was coming in 2020.
In her new book, the ten year anniversary updated, expanded edition of The LifeQuake Phenomenon entitled The LifeQuake Miracle: Awakening to Your True Purpose in Times of Personal and Global Upheaval, Dr. Toni shares the personal LifeQuake stories and tools from 15 thought leaders and over 100 clients, with the foreword by N.Y. Times best selling author, Marci Shimoff. Dr. Galardi also maintains a private practice and teaches webinar classes by phone and Zoom.
This book is unique and powerful, as it will take you step-by-step through your soul’s path of progression. You will learn strategies to evolve your body, mind and spirit at various stages, even amidst external chaos. It will give you both the understanding and structure you need to have a resilient and passionate life, where you thrive in the new world that’s emerging.
