Passion- in literal term is defined as an uncontrollable, strong feeling or an emotion. But in figurative terms, the meaning of the word expands to much more than just a “feeling.”

It is through passion that an individual develops an instinct to keep learning about new things. Passion serves as a motive for people to try out and experience new things. It gives people a purpose, to work hard toward something and become a master at it. It gives a sense of responsibility that makes a person determined to work their way and make their mark in an industry and then develops a sense of accomplishment after they have achieved their goals.

With passion, there are no boundaries, and that is one of the biggest favor “passion” does to a person. It gives people a huge field to grow, learn and shine out everywhere. And there is no better example to be given in this regard than Dr. Regina A. Johnson.

For Regina, passion never kept her stuck at one place, instead, she used her talents, determination and skills to make herself known in various fields. Because of that, her career portfolio has diversified a lot, and today she is a Naval Officer, an author, a self-publisher, a life coach, a wife and a mother.

A PASSIONATE AND DETERMINED CHILD

Regina A. Johnson was born in Barreiro, Belo Horizonte, in the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil. She is the first-born child of Maria and Jose, who had two additional sons, Alexandre and Marcelo.  While not financially rich, her father was a hard-working man.

Regina’s mother was a loyal wife and an honorable mother. She raised Regina and her brothers with unconditional love, understanding and unending humor. As a child, Regina learned several attributes from her mother, and to this day, calls her mother her hero. For Regina, she has been a constant support throughout the good, bad and ugly of her life and taught her strength while accepting emotion. Relentless determination, bravery, courage, humor in the face of adversity, being responsible, and being powerful- Regina learned a great deal from her mother.

Growing up in a small village, opportunities for new experiences were very limited. She found a way to entertain herself at the library, where she discovered America and began dreaming of going there. For Regina, America was a country of opportunities, and that became her dream: coming to America.

But that was easier said than done, Regina had to cross many hurdles before she could touch her dream. At age 21, Regina traveled to Rio de Janeiro alone and discussed her desire with the American consulate. There, she made a promise to serve the country, saying, “Sir, I promise you that as long as I am in the great United States of America, I will serve your land and provide care to the children of America. I can assure you that I am a young person with dignity and self-respect. I will never bring shame to your country. I will honor your flag, your culture and your people. Please, let me go!”

Amazed by her passion and assertiveness, Regina was granted her VISA. Regina flew back to her home town and informed her mother what she intended to do. Her mother provided support and said that she always knew Regina was seeking a different reality beyond the village. She encouraged and blessed Regina.

Regina borrowed luggage from a friend, and even though it was empty, her heart was full of hope. She knew that the possibilities were endless.

PAVING WAY TOWARD SUCCESS

After Regina immigrated, her priority was to pursue a higher academic level of education. She became obsessed with academic preparation, and her desire to learn more was always connected with her desire to pass knowledge.

For that very reason, Regina acquired a Doctorate in Ministry from the Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Hamilton, Massachusetts. She earned a Masters’ degree in Counseling Psychology & Addictions at Cambridge College in Massachusetts. She is also an alumna of River College in Nashua, New Hampshire, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in General Special Education and Elementary School of Education.

In August 2009, Regina entered the naval service attending Officer Development School in Newport, Rhode Island. Later, she attended Naval Chaplain School at South Fort Jackson Carolina, then received orders to report at the Naval Health Clinic Hawaii (NHCH).

Regina became the Navy Liaison Chaplain Clinician at Tripler Army Medical Center (TAMC) and worked with staff, families, and patients. Regina also collaborated with the Tri-Service Addiction Recovery Facility, Department of Psychiatry, and the oncology ward.

In November of 2012, she became the Command Chaplain at II Medical Battalion in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Three years later, she was selected to serve in The United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD.

Since July 2018, Regina has been in San Diego. Initially she followed orders to serve as the on the USS COMSTOCK LSD45 as Command Chaplain, and currently she is part of the pastoral care team at the Balboa Naval Medical Center.

Regina’s stellar performance as a naval officer earned her several awards, including the Navy/Marine Corps Achievement Medal, the Army Achievement Medal, the National Defense Service Medal and the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.

For 15 years, Regina worked at the Belmont Baptist Church (BSBC) in Massachusetts. There, she handled pastoral responsibilities along with working as a psychotherapist in the greater Boston area. Her ability to communicate in five languages provided opportunities to reach many lives. She has more than 12 years of experience in individual, couples, group, and family therapy and has dealt with clients facing all kinds of relational and interpersonal challenges, including grief, abuse, depression, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, family dynamics and eating disorders.

Regina never limited herself. For a very long time, she even wrote, but never took it seriously. Academic obligation and pleasure were the two motives that pushed her to write, and after she completed her Doctorate at Gordon-Conwell Theological School, she decided to transform her thesis into books. But she didn’t have any intention to be known as a writer and didn’t invest much time and interest in producing a relevant message.

It wasn’t until Regina became a mother that she realized how much she wanted to write. Not just for herself, but for everyone else, and deliver messages that would increase the message of diversity around the globe.

Most of Regina’s writings are inspired by her beautiful daughter, Orlanda, a curious kid. Regina herself found answers to many questions through books, and she knew that books would help her kid the same way they had helped her.

This is when Regina began writing and decided that she wanted to answer questions that popped in children’s heads, just like her daughter’s.

“Writing children’s books is my opportunity to speak on behalf of those who have lost their voices, no matter the reason. I hope to create a legacy, and writing about diversity, along with being inclusive, is my attempt to open a dialogue of understanding.”

Regina is working on several books, including “Unique –Not Weird!” which is scheduled for self-publication on September, 2020. Her book, “Naval Warship Hidden Treasure” is expected to be published on November, 2020, “A Heart Without Walls” will be published on December, 2020, and “Heaven and a Mermaid’s Tale!” will be published on January 2021.

Regina Johnson’s story is a narration of passion and steadfastness. Her love for making a difference in the world with her talent and knowledge is commendable!

Michelle has been a part of the journey ever since Bigtime Daily started. As a strong learner and passionate writer, she contributes her editing skills for the news agency. She also jots down intellectual pieces from categories such as science and health.

If you are looking to enhance your life through the art of spell casting, then there is a correct way to do it. Casting a spell yourself can work, however the majority of the time people do not get results. The best way to go is to have a professional coven perform the casting to ensure the best results. When you have a group of experienced witches and warlocks casting a spell on your behalf, the results tend to be strong because everyone is putting their energy into the universe with intentions to produce a specific outcome. This outcome can be a variety of different things such as bringing two people back together again, increasing finances, bring luck and positive energy into your life and protect you from negative energy.

Changing your life in 2023 can begin with having a professional spell cast to bring the change you desire to fruition. Who is the best spell caster to perform a life changing spell? Warlockmagicspells.com has a coven of 18 experienced members that assist in the casting of every spell. Some spells take a few nights to cast. How long does it take to get results from a spell? The time frame varies from person to person but this specific coven says that it takes 3 days to 90 days to get results. What happens if you are unhappy with the results after 90 days? They offer a promise guarantee that if you are unhappy with the results of your spell after 90 days then they will recast it and add extra energy into your spell work to make it stronger. 

Case Results

We tested the results of the spells cast by the members of warlock magic spells. The first person we interviewed told us about her story. “My fiancé of 5 years reconnected with his ex-girlfriend from high school after running into her at his work. They had an affair for a short period of time before he told me that his feelings were changing. He said that he still loved her and needed to see where this goes. I was devastated because we were planning a wedding and he just gave up! We didn’t have any major problems prior to him running into his ex and she just ruined everything! I reached out to Daniel from warlock magic spells and had a return and bind spell cast. He told me that it would speed up their relationship where it would fizzle out fast and the problems that they had in the past that broke them up would resurface. Well…a month later I got a text from my boyfriend telling me everything that I wanted to hear. He said that he made the biggest mistake of his life and wanted to work things out with me. He said that he will never have wondering eyes again and will do anything to make our relationship work. He literally begged for my forgiveness! I was relieved. We had a lot of work to do on building trust again but we got through it and came out on top! We are back on track to get married and after couples counseling, we were able to sort out some trust issues. I know it was because of the spell that I was able to get him back so fast. I think if I didn’t have this spell cast it could have taken years before they broke up and then I probably would’ve moved on. I’m grateful that I stumbled across an article about spell casting because it changed my life and the outcome of my relationship!”

Another person we interviewed that had a life changing spell cast was one who had financial issues. He was on the brink of financial ruin when he decided to do a lottery spell. “I lost my job as the VP of a logistics company. Due to covid, our business went down significantly. I had a lot of savings, but it got depleted over time. Since the logistics industry was hit hard with the pandemic, I had a hard time finding work. 6 months later I started to fall behind on my mortgage. I took a gamble on a scratch off lottery spell. I didn’t have a lot of money to spend on spell casting but my cousin won a lot of money shortly after he had a money spell cast so I figured I would try it. I had warlock magic spells cast a lottery spell directed towards scratch off lottery games. I hit a first place prize of $10,000 shorty after that! It definitely helped me pay some bills and get back on my feet until I found another job.”

The conclusion we have drawn is that change your life spells do work!
