About Me



My name is Lianna Aghabekyan but I go by the pen name Linn Bekyan. I am the founder of Transformational Mindset Coaching Academy.

As a result of childhood trauma I grew up very shy and introverted. My self-esteem and self-confidence went down which were affecting negatively my life.

At around 14 years old I became intuitively attracted to self-help books. There were few available in Soviet Armenia where I lived at the time. One of them was a book on Autogenic training by Vladimir Levi. That book fascinated me when I realized I can actually create and re-create myself many time I wanted. It sounded like a magic.

At that time I also got my hands into “Hatha Yoga” typewritten manuscript that reinforced the idea that we create ourselves.

I was building my character through great Russian literature, books of Tolstoy, Chekhov and Dostoevsky. I was studying and emulating the strength of the main characters.

On December 7, 1988 we had a terrible earthquake and as a result many countries offered incredible support. We also got support from spiritual institutions. One of them was the Maharishi Foundation USA. They came to teach us Transcendental Meditation to help us deal with enormous stress. I remember going to that event and getting a private mantra whispered into my ear. I never heard of meditation before. Everything spiritual and God related was forbidden in Soviet times.

I started to meditate twice a day for 20 min and I did it continuously for 2 years. I became strong on inside. No negative comments or negative attitude from outside could get through the “shield” that I felt I had around me. It was amazing. (On a side note: I am still meditating but I use different kinds of meditation including my own “SomaMind” meditation.)

In 1992 Soviet Union ceased to exist and all the spiritual literature started to get re-printed sometimes the pre-revolution (1917) editions with old Russian characters in them. This is when I discovered the “Light on the path” by Patanjali; bought a small but comprehensive “Yogic Breathing” book and started to read the Bible with its timeless wisdom. I remember reading St Paul’s first letter to Corinthians chapter 13 on Love. It went right into my heart.

When I moved to Canada in 1997 I finally got an access to a rich variety of self-help books, workshops, seminars, etc.

I started my regular Hatha Yoga practice in 2001 and became a yoga teacher in 2008.

In 2003 I became Reiki Master. From 2006-2008 I received numerous Diplomas such as Nutritional Consultant, Life Coach, Colour Therapist.

At that time I had a very memorable spiritual experience while in deep meditation. I asked “What is the purpose of life?” and I heard the answer “to love, to learn to love” and at the same time an incredible feeling of love filled all my body. I never experienced anything like that before and even after. But the memory of it will always be with me and remind me of God’s unconditional love, of not being alone, of being of service to other human beings.

I was doing all of this while working full-time as a Project Accounting Supervisor and doing my Accounting designation (Canadian CGA). I received my designation in 2004 and was the second best in Quebec and among the top 10 in Canada for my academic achievements.

In 2009 I moved again across the ocean to the UK where I did my Finance Master’s Degree with distinction.

All that time I was blogging, writing articles on self-improvement and helping anybody who would come my way.

While still in Canada I discovered the Course in Miracles (in 2006). It sounded so intriguing that I bought the book. I read it all even though I didn’t understand most of it and started doing the “Workbook for students” exercises which I didn’t finish. I gave the book away when I was in the process of moving to the UK. And I bought it again in 2016. I am reading it again and doing the exercises at the same time. This time I am committed to finishing it.

The life is never ending improvement. I love to apply the Japanese principle of Kaizen to my life. There is always change whether we like it or not, whether we initiate it or not. The change is happening day after day in a subtle way until it reaches the critical mass and we finally notice it and then we say “it happened to us”.

I prefer an active change – learning new, useful things every day (not celebrity gossiping or negative news kind of stuff); something that can help me move forward in life and I can use to help others to do the same.
