I MET SOMEONE THE OTHER DAY…

I MET SOMEONE THE OTHER DAY… Another human. He had come into my place to deliver a new microwave, and it reminded me of the times in my past when I wouldn’t have even acknowledged his presence. Subconsciously, I may have even treated him less than due to his job or felt that I didn’t need to acknowledge him because he wasn’t family, a friend or someone I knew. This time, though, I felt an instinctual pull to speak to him, to acknowledge him, and really, to acknowledge his humanity. I do this often. When I’m walking. At the gym. […]

A New Way To Look At Feeling Our Feelings And The Importance Of This…

We’ve spent our whole lives being taught our emotions are wrong, resisting them and believing that feeling our feelings hurts. But, what if, instead of this old paradigm, we were raised believing that feeling our feelings is one of the biggest keys to a rich, deep life? What if we were taught that we can only allow in as much joy as we can sadness, anger, hurt, etc. and when we limit our range of feelings, we limit our life? What if, with this, we were not only taught this, but we were given the tools to actually be able […]

What is Self-Love and How Do We Cultivate It?

Self-love is a hot topic these days, and I get asked a lot about what self-love is and how to take steps towards more self-love in our lives. For me, years ago before I started a true self-love journey, if you had asked me if I loved myself, just like most people, I likely would have said yes. But, through my journey, I’ve come to realize while I believed this, I showed up in many ways that weren’t loving. So, in order to better understand what self-love is, let’s first start with what not loving ourselves looks like. When we […]

The Importance of Knowing Your No and Communicating It

As I put myself out there in new ways, I am realizing just how many people have a hard time communicating their no. This used to be challenging for me, too, (and sometimes still is!). I remember, years ago, many times finding myself saying yes, even when I meant no, or awkwardly turning someone down, or even lying, to get out of something just because I didn’t know how to say no. But, as I’ve taken this journey to truth, connecting to my no and then knowing how to share it in a way that’s kind and clear, I realize […]

How I Stopped Running Out of Time + Why Something Can Feel Right and Not Work Out

I wanted to share a behind-the-scenes (challenging) story with you from completing my first book, Living Deeply: A Transformational Journey Through Deep Pain, Loss and Abandonment to Healing, Self-Love and Miracles and some great lessons and things that happened from it. With this, this story will help you understand why something may feel “right” or aligned, but doesn’t necessarily “work out,” and it includes how I undid the feeling of always running out of time. So, a-year-and-a-half-ago, as I began writing my book, I started thinking about who I was going to self-publish with, and I landed on a self-publisher that felt right […]

Something Special for You…

Many of you know that my first book, Living Deeply: A Transformational Journey Through Deep Pain, Loss and Abandonment to Healing, Self-Love and Miracles, is finally out, and I wanted to share something special with you here—an excerpt from it. It is so vulnerable to share many of the stories you will find in this book publicly, but I know I have to, not only because knowing it’s okay to share these is part of my journey, but also as a healer and human being. That being said, if you’re looking to go deeper on your healing journey, if you’re looking […]

I was thinking of giving up… and then this happened!

I was thinking about giving up… Or at a minimum, taking a pause. I’ve been working on a huge project for the Business and Sales Coaching part of my business and this idea had come through that had felt amazing, light and exciting when it initially popped in. Initially, I got traction on it, but then it suddenly stopped and I spent the next month creating activity without results. And, let’s face it. It can be grueling when you’re working on something and putting a ton of effort in without the reward. So, as I began to work on it […]

The Easy Manifestation Tool I Love

Did you know we’re at some of our most powerful as manifestors when we’re enjoying ourselves?  I was reminded of this a couple of weeks ago in my dance class. I was experiencing powerful joy, and it was then that a tool I hadn’t used in awhile popped into my consciousness. Here’s the tool: When you find yourself doing something you’re really enjoying, start thinking/saying affirmations of things you want to create in your reality. (You can say these in your head or out loud. Either way works.) Why this works: Because when you’re in a state of joy, you’re […]

Does manifesting abundance still feel challenging for you?

Does manifesting abundance still feel challenging for you? If so, I can absolutely relate. There was a time for me when I wondered if this was ever going to change. I wondered what I could do differently to create a different result for myself. It was then, after much struggling, that I made a decision that I was going to become an expert at abundance (and money)! (IMPORTANT: Deciding something is one of the biggest keys to creating it. ALSO IMPORTANT: This is a constant work in progress!) With this decision, I started reading (i.e., – listening :)) to a […]

The Wise Advice that My Writing Teacher Gave Me that Applies So Well to Life

As I wrap up the final pieces of my book, Living Deeply: A Transformational Journey Through Deep Pain, Loss and Abandonment to Healing, Self-Love and Miracles, I was thinking back to when I first started the writing process. As I set off on the adventure of writing my first book, I was reviewing my notes from a Writing from Your Heart workshop that I had taken years earlier with my favorite writing teacher, Nancy Aronie. As we began to dive into the workshop, I found the wise advice she had given us: Don’t edit yourself off the page before you’re even […]
