Question from Soul Purpose Tribe Member: I want to integrate many different offerings and services into my website and email marketing yet most business coaches recommend I focus on one business offering at a time. What do you recommend when it comes to breaking the rules?
I realize you are bombarded by so-called-spiritual teachings that proclaim that “making money isn’t spiritual” or “money is the root of evil” or “wealthy people are greedy.” It’s likely that no one told you that you would need to become a business owner to successfully turn your passion into a profession that pays the bills. The truth is you are not serving the world as a broke and struggling teacher-healer-coach and that is hard because you are committed to support global awakening
Hold on to your third eye because it’s time to get real about making a powerful and positive difference in the world through building a profitable business.
It’s true that helping your students to calm and center their minds, feel and heal their bodies and connect into the unity of all living things DOES make a positive difference.
What if you could have a far greater impact in the world if you more fully step into your power as a community leader? What if being conscious business owner is the fast track to powerful changes in economy? What if money is a vehicle that can help and heal the planet?
It is clear that we are in a potent time of awakening on the planet. The challenge with awakening consciousness is that it’s not about rainbows and unicorns, it’s about awakening truth. Awakening to the truth that humans have the power to create and destroy life.
There is a MASSIVE force in the US that uses the power of money for greed, destruction, and profits over people. As yoga teachers, healers and coaches i believe it is our duty to take a stand and be the change not only on the meditation cushion or the yoga mat but in our economy.
The world needs us heal our relationship with money. i know it’s hard to imagine admitting we care about money, yet money is a vehicle, a vehicle for positive change or a vehicle for destruction. Right now there is a growing movement of conscious-green-sustainable businesses which is great! Yet time is of the essence to reach the tipping point of power & money that is aligned with the greater good.
You know the truth in your bones that you are destined to be a part of the change.
Every day we are flooded with epic issues that are challenging our freedom and the survival of human life on earth. From global warming, to gun control, to GMO foods to the presidential campaign, it’s time for change. We cannot wait for someone else to lead the charge. We need everyone who is willing and able to take a stand and be the change.
Ideas to get you started in your heart-centered business:
1. Heal your relationship with money – Recognize that like any relationship that isn’t working it takes time, energy and devotion to shift & heal a broken relationship. Take a few minutes everyday during the week to come into right relationship with money. Examine your limiting beliefs about money and do the work to align your values in a profitable business model.
2. Embrace that you are a business owner & learn to make it profitable – Most professional training programs include little to no business training to become certified or licensed yet there are many organizations that teach heart-centered & sustainable business building curriculum that can help you/
3. Learn public speaking to create change with issues that matter to you – Cultivate your ability to speak and lead with clarity and confidence. Use your speaking skills to teach and share your message and to speak up when you see injustice in your local community.
Bust the MYTH that making money isn’t spiritual!
Did you ever consider the dominant paradigm about money in the spiritual community is actually keeping you broke, stuck and powerless?!
Stand in your open-hearted loving strength and create a profitable business that changes lives and has more power and more dollars to vote with.
With the fierce love of awakening truth,
Awaken Soul Freedom Day 6: Healing the Mother Wound
I am walking and listening to a Sacred Mantra called, “Ma,” a song that celebrates the divine Mother. As i listen i feel a HUGE WAVE OF LOVE & DEVOTION wash over me for the Great Mother. I open my body, mind and heart easily to this unconditional and soul deep love, YES!
Great Mother: i feel you loving me.
Me: YES, It’s easy to love you!
Great Mother: love your mother like you love me.
I feel my body harden and my heart close, the great love i was feeling is now far away.
Great Mother: love your mother like you love me.
Me: I can’t. i won’t. But she didn’t……
Great Mother speaking softly: love your mother like you love me.
She speaks to me with compassion while holding my mother wound, i feel her loving every part of me so i can soften in her embrace.
Great Mother: she is a woman just like you, wonderful, wounded, wild, weak, strong, broken and whole in her human-ness.
Me: yes she is.
Great Mother: love your mother like you love me.
I let go of resistance. i let my love for the Great Mother fill me until it pours out of me. I feel the wounded child within me that doesn’t want to share this Great Love with my mother because…….
Great Mother: sssssssshhhhhhh, let the love flow. Let yourself love your mother like you love me. love her in the realm of spirit.
Me: Jai Ma (Victory to the Mother)
I let go and open to loving my mother with all her faults, fears and weakness.
Great Mother: love your mother like you love me. Love her like you love Me.
Me: Jai Ma. Jai Ma. Jai Ma.
I feel the love grow with each repetition of this sacred mantra. The wave of unconditional love begins to fill and overflow from me…..JAI MA!
Many of us hold deep pain in regards to our Mothers or being a Mother. Our wounded inner child can keep us stuck or overwhelmed in trying to move forward in our lives. Even if you had the blessing of an incredible, kind and loving mother there is often healing that is possible. We can also experience the deep and painful wounded feminine expressed in our disconnection from Mother Earth creating the crisis of humans destroying our environment.
In honor of Mother’s Day i created a GIFT for you & the Great Mother. It is an audio recording & re-coding called:
Soul Purpose Healing ~ Healing the Mother Wound
I encourage you to listen to this audio in a safe space where you can bring your full presence and attention to the process of healing the Mother wound. JAI MA!
This is my gift for Mother’s Day, in service to the Great Mother & restore the healing web of Divine Feminine & Divine Masculine on our planet.
Jai Ma & Happy Mother’s day!

Soul Purpose Healing – Create a Healing Ritual
for many lifetimes i have practiced & cultivated my craft.
i have been called a witch and destroyed because of the fear of my power.
i have feared you knowing this about me.
i have tried to hide my truth.
i have been afraid to die for being a powerful woman.
i have felt afraid of the fire that has been used to destroy me…
i am witch.
i will no longer hide.
if you think fire can destroy me,
you do not know who i am.
the fire is the power of my desire to create change.
the fire fuels my passion to empower women.
it’s time to activate our WILD WITCHY WEALTHY WOMANLY WAYS!
i am ready to rise.
The Medicine Buddha Mantra is a favorite chant of mine. I woke up chanting this recently yet could not remember what the meaning of the chant. I kept chanting trusting that my soul knows best and often my rational mind can get in the way of deep healing. Later the same day Harbin Hot Springs burned down, thousands of homes were burned and many friends were literally running for their lives. My spirit knew that our community would need DEEP HEALING support that day….
Harbin Hot Springs has been a Soul Healing Sanctuary for me for over 10 years, a place i would go to connect to the soft voice of my inner wisdom, listen to nature, soak deeply in the healing springs and SLOW DOWN!
May humans come into a balanced way of living with each other and nature. May the healing springs rise from the ashes.
Here is a translation of the Medicine Buddha Chant that i resonate with.
I place one stone in each hand for Healing the divine masculine with Golden sheen obsidian & feminine with and mahogany obsidian.
Ganesha the elephant-headed God support the process to eliminate obstacles.
The spirits of my mother and father arrive to assist the process…What an incredible blessing.
My father passed away 17 years go and I have been estranged from my mother for 28 years.
Healing isn’t limited by time, space, life or death.
i am a natural saleswoman although i never would have considered myself this until recently. i started selling all the way back with my childhood lemonade stand. (yes, i have invested in sales training in my “grown-up” business.)
i have massive resistance when sales people talk about “closing”, “closing a prospect”, “closing the deal”.
the energetics of using the word “closing” in regards to starting a working relationship feels AWFUL!!!!!
i recently had a friend, who is a talented saleswoman tell me that my resistance to the word “closing” in regards to sales was ridiculous, silly and a block that keeps me from selling. “closing” in relationship to selling may work for some and it doesn’t work for me! the feeling of being “closed” during a sales conversation feels like being hunted or trapped, NO THANK YOU!
i am here to tell you that you can enroll clients from a heart-centered place that is energetically OPENING!
you can open a space for your prospective clients to STEP INTO.
you can create enrollment conversations that are INVITING.
you and your potential client can experience deep healing during sales conversations.
If you know in your HEART that inviting clients to work with you is a sacred art and you are ready for help with heart-centered enrollment conversations let’s talk about how i can help you.I have a limited number of Spiritual Business Clarity Session available each month; I encourage you to fill out the application to reserve your time here: Spiritual Business Clarity Session
How I successfully reprogramed my MIND to dislike foods that i wanted to eliminate or minimize in my nutrition plan.
the mind is a powerful tool for transformation and on the flip side monkey mind can drive you absolutely crazy.
i want to share a technique i have used to successful change my cravings for certain foods and beverages. instead of feeling “i can’t have” i shifted to “i don’t want” = empowered choice & freedom from feeling deprived.
at 15 i had my first waitress job at a pancake house where we only served breakfast food (even for dinner.) the restaurant was famous for strong coffee and apple pancakes. the apple pancakes are LOADED with sugar and are more like a cake than a pancake.
adults would come in to drink lots of coffee and eat an apple pancake.
i observed two things:
1. before the coffee arrived my customers were often crabby, rude or angry.
2. after they drank coffee and got loaded up on sugar they acted CRAZY. a more refined version of a child on too much sugar with the added potency of STRONG CAFFEINE.
i decided coffee had no inherent value. i intuitively started programming my mind with the phrase, “i hate the smell of coffee.” it worked like a charm i still hate the smell of coffee today. YAY!
WHY did this work? there was NO RESISTANCE to this new belief. i had NO REASON to want to like coffee so my mind and body easily and effortless adopted the belief that i hate the smell of coffee. (i know that may be hard for coffee lovers to imagine.)
Fast forward to 2015, my weakness was baked goods. i ate them in moderation yet i recently completed a 90 cleanse and plan to continue with minimal gluten and sugar. How did i reprogram my mind when it was something I DO LIKE & I DO WANT?
I decided to change my relationship with baked goods and used a replacement concept.
I chose to reprogram my mind with the belief that baked goods that i see in the shiny glass cases at the market or in restaurants actually tastes like eating the plastic “playfood” that children have in their toy kitchens. YUCK! i anchored this idea into my mind along with the desire to eat food that has nutritional value.
I focus on the feeling and sensation of eating plastic food along with thoughts of eating high nutritional value foods and i am delighted to say IT’S WORKING!!!!
Why did this work? First, I eliminated resistance. Next i reprogrammed my mind & body to have a new belief that i want to eat food that has a HIGH NUTRITIONAL VALUE & makes me feel good.
AWESOME! my 90 day clarity quest is now completed and i am on a new track with the choices i am making with eating, moving my body, my thoughts, my relationship, my “stuff” and the path of success i am on in my business.
how do you create lasting change in your lifestyle or business?
What essential elements do you need to run a successful Healing Arts Business?
I created this free training audio for you to Jumpstart your Healing Arts Business. I believe it is possible, actually essential to integrate your creative & spiritual practices into your business.
As we bring together ALL aspects of who we are in service to the greater good without compromising ourselves, our well being or our personal desires we will create the greatest fulfillment and success.
The energy healing and transmission at the end of the training nearly moved me to tears as I was making it. Powerful!
Post the inspired actions you will take in the comments below.
My connection to Source, to Truth, to Self has been my lifeline since i was a little girl. As a child i could see, hear and feel what is not being said. When i was small i did not have a guide to help me understand and find my way.
Luckily I choose a path of healing for my professional and have gotten paid for my ability to see, hear, feel and invite change for healing and awakening. This choice has supported me to invest the majority of my time, energy and money to my path.
At times i feel lonely since my inner sanctuary is often void of people. I have felt that something is “wrong” with me because i am alone a LOT.
I am embracing who i am, my strengths, my brilliance, and the power of my BE-ing. My life is shifting fast since i stopped struggling and trying to make myself be what i am not.
I walk between worlds.
I am a teacher, a student, and a guide who is dedicated to the path of awakening.
I am committed to soul alignment for myself and our community.
I am in service to building the bridge and being the bridge for love.
I am opening, softening, and allowing my gifts to create positive and powerful change in the world.
And so it is.
I need you to hold me.
Embrace my light & my shadow.
Hold my triumphs & my deepest wounds.
Feel my fear & my fury.
Be with my biggest & grand dreams.
Shine the light in the dark corners.
Be with me. All of me.

I am consciously entering the field of birth and death this week.
I stand on the threshold that leads to my father’s birthday & the anniversary of his physical death.
Countless times I have cried longing for my father’s arms around me.
I have wanted to hear the encouraging sound of his voice.
After 17 years, i allow myself the space grieve.
I expand the space of continuing to LOVE.
I focus on the relationship I can have with him, the connection we have that is not limited by space and time. The power of love that still holds steady even though he holds no physical form.
When i stopped resisting my dharma (sacred duty) to walk between worlds the healing transformation
the struggle eased
my eyes opened
my heart expanded
my courage ignited
my mission clarified
the path to freedom became crystal clear
soul purpose activation
standing. steady. ready. open. clear. courageous.
For a decade I cut my own hair and then I “matured” into having a professional stylist.
Tonight, I embraced my wild woman and my hair and the scissors danced.
wisdom in waiting.
i wondered for weeks… what would happen if i cut a new style?
will i like it?
what if i don’t?
the words & wonderings rolled around in my head until…
i stood before the mirror with a comb and scissors in my hand.
create the curve & smooth the edges.
i think it like it.
yes i do. 🙂
I saw this peacock minutes before I presented my signature talk, “The Spiritual Art of Wealth” at a yoga teacher’s retreat on Saturday near Austin.
When I first started teaching the integration of making money & making a difference with spiritual teachings I was terrified my teachers would be upset. I felt an undeniable drive to support healers and heart-centered service professionals to serve and be financially supported because I know in the core of my being that spiritually aligned business and making money can serve the greater good.
I take a stand for creating change in regards to the Spiritual Art of Wealth. Money can be used for life-enhancing purposes, it is powerful vehicle to create change. I believe artists, healers, teachers, & visionaries can align with the flow of money & wealth in service to positive transformation AND we need as many full activated healers engaged in creating positive change on the planet right now!!!!!
When you take a stand for what you do and powerfully and authentically share your message you create a movement and you are magnetic! What do you stand for? What would you change if you had the power to create global change?
I stand for the healing and integration of creative spirituality & business success. The divine dance of the feminine & masculine. The celebration and empowerment of the right & left hemispheres of the brain. Embracing the light & dark within each of us. Honoring the cycle of birth & death.
May each of us align our message with our vision to create powerful change. As we show up in service to the greater good may we open the channels to receive the physical, financial and energetic support we need to change the world for the better.
And so it is.
I fall in love easily.
There was a time when I thought this was a problem, I would fall in love with the check out girl, a man walking across the street, a child playing in the park.
I appreciate my ability to love easily and deeply.
I changed my ideas about what needed to happen next… After I fall in love.
I delight in love.
My heart expands every time I fall in love.
I long to love without limits.
I can feel the wave of love that washed over me the moment I opened my heart to love you.
I believe in loving courageously.
I love you.
I was stuck in an old story that I was “too masculine, too intense, too driven, too direct, TOO MUCH and NOT Feminine”….
Her question sparked powerful healing for me to embody my expression of feminine power. Permission to activate my form of feminine magic and to STOP shaming myself for all the ways in which my expression was wrong, bad, and not good enough.
May all women & men honor & express the way the power of the feminine moves us and longs to be expressed through us.
May we awaken feminine magic for healing and integration of the masculine and feminine.
Being an entrepreneur is a COURAGEOUS ENDEAVOR!
It is path of transformation that invites us to explore and adventure into the unknown…
To clarify what we stand for, who we serve, and to share our heart and soul everyday.
I was a kid-preneur and totally dedicated to create a business doing what i love.
For the first 18 years of my business i was successful because of my talent for organizing my unstoppable passion, and skillful communication… i didn’t have any business training.
In 2008 i decided to make a quantum leap in my business and i knew i needed to get training and mentoring to support me. I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and immersed myself in a community of conscious entrepreneurs committed to making a difference. It has been wild ride of education and expansion.
I am on the threshold of my next courageous act of becoming more visible with speaking, more leveraged with LIVE events and group programs, willing to share my writing, and ready to shine the message of my heart-work with video.
What is your next courageous act to support your business growth?
Would you like to have a private conversation with me about your BIG DREAM & VISION for your business and how I may be able to support you to make it a reality? Fill out the application by clicking the link for a complimentary Prosperity Breakthrough Session with me. I have a limited number of these sessions per month, take the next step now.
I am learning to take more time off and to unplug from technology.
Simply stating that FEELS SO GOOD!
I love my clients. I feel blessed to help heart centered women entrepreneurs to make a difference in the world. I am totally passionate about my work which makes it easy to work too much.
This weekend i spent my time out on the land, camping under the stars, sitting by the campfire, digging in the dirt, swimming in the pond, laying naked in the sun, and being in community. The vision for this piece of land is to connect with an incredible community whom hold a deep intention to create chosen family and rebuild a sense of tribe in connection with earth.
My intention is to let love in, to feel connected in community and move in sync with earth and her rhythms. This weekend was a powerful opportunity to step into a new story and experience… to relax, renew, and rebirth myself into the spring time. Feeling full, recharged and connected is an essential part of running a divinely designed lifestyle business. Many women entrepreneur make the mistake of believing, “i will enjoy life once my business is successful”, which inevitably creates what i call the “burn-out model of business.” Be sure that your self-care is integrated into the very foundation of your business success.
Please share in the comments:
How do you relax?
What intentions would you like to renew?
Is there a vision you are giving birth to this spring?
Yes, I am refreshed. I unplugged from ALL technology and soaked, slept, sun bathed, read and hiked at a hot springs retreat center north of San Francisco. Time in nature is an essential tool for me to plug into my soul and my heart. I needed to fill my heart-well, to listen to my soul song, and to dance my dreams into being.
I love my life and my work and the truth is…. recently it feels like i am “going off the rails” with a lot of rapid business growth and personal transformation.
My practices of seated meditation, yoga, and dancing have helped to ground and stabilize me through many massive changes recently including: writing a chapter in a book, planning a LIVE Soul Centered Prosperity event, taking on 6 new clients in 2 weeks and MORE!
I find that most of my clients (and women in general) give up their self-care sanctuary when time gets crunched. As women, we need to be in alignment with our soul to fully activate our power. Daily self-care practices are non-negotiable. I know, i can hear ALL the excuses, believe me i have heard or made every single one.
Dear women, please care for yourself.
Tend to your body, mind, and heart as a sacred temple.
Give to yourself with the greatest unconditional love you can…
When a woman is full she flourishes,
and her family, community, and business flourish too.
When a woman feels heard,
she is better able to access the power of the present moment.
When a woman loves herself
she leads by loving example.
When a woman respects her own needs
she can care for others with greater compassion.
This is the way we will lead the world to change, for Mother Earth and all her creatures.
Share in the comments section about your favorite self-care practices. How do you ensure your self-care sanctuary receives the care and attention it needs?
It’s day #33 of my year long dance party, woooohhhhooooo!
I made a commitment to dance every day for 1 year in order to activate my creativity daily for juicy and full expression in my life and business.
I moved to the SF Bay Area almost 5 years ago after leading yoga teacher trainings over-seas. i have been very focused on building my business skills by studying everything i can get my hands on in regards to marketing, sales, branding, video, copy-writing…. blah blah blah. Yes, all of this important yet i found myself disconnected from my creativity. i am excited to take my business success to the next level now that i have systems and strategies that are foundational for a successful business (more on this later.) I have gotten a lot of push back for different communities and friends that are illustrating long held limiting beliefs like:
“you cannot be spiritual and successful”
“you should not charge for your skills as a healer/artist/teacher”
“sales and marketing are sleazy”
“your website makes you look like a charlatan”
In the last few months i have been speaking a LOT about my desire to empower holistic professionals to make a living doing what they love. I want to make a difference in the world by motivating healers, artists, and educators to end the “struggling healer” cycle and the banishing the “starving artist” story.
So you may be wondering….. what does this have to do with dancing?
All of the information i have gathered about business is only helpful if i find the way that it best serves my community and resonates with my message and mission. There have been many times i have fallen on my face in the last few years in seeking the place of authenticity in bridging business + spirituality + creativity.
Dancing gives me the freedom to express myself and move without concern for getting it right or what it looks like. It allows me to move energy, to experiment, to explore, to express, to playfully find the place of deep connection to my power, my passion, and my mission.
I find myself dancing more… playing more… exploring more outside of the “dancing time” i set aside each day. it feels delicious and is awakening my unstoppable, creative, and courageous self. mmmmmmmhhhhmmmmmmm.
Tell me in the comments how do you activate your creative spark daily?
I have had a variety of experiences with having money and not having much money in my life.
There are a multitude of perspectives and programmed ideas on money in our culture/world.
“Money is the root of all evil.”
“Money would solve all my problems.”
“Time is money.”
“Money doesn’t grow on trees.”
Here are some potent famous people’s ideas about money:
“While money can’t buy happiness, it certainly lets you choose your own form of misery,” Groucho Marx.
“A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned,” Benjamin Franklin.
“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination,” Oscar Wilde.
Based upon where you grew up, your families ideas about money and your own experiences you have developed your own perspectives, ideas, and stories about money.
I have many voices in my head and characters that all seems to have “the answer,” and as you will see “the right answer” is different depending upon which character you ask.
Shifting our wealth consciousness to allow ourselves to experience greater financial abundance is rooted in the balancing and clearing our first and second chakras. This invites us to shift limiting beliefs and thoughts about money, and to shift our perspective to believe our needs are important and will be take care of.
I made this FUN video to illustrate the often opposite perspectives, different ideas, attitudes, and beliefs on money.
Post in the comments, which character can you most relate to?
“We must be willing to get rid of the life we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” Joseph Campbell
i have been a lone wolf all my life.
i spent my time childhood creating ceremony connected to nature. i loved being creative with writing, reading, playing outdoors and i thrived in physical activities. I struggled with loads of health issues and did my best to navigate family dysfunction (join the club right?!)
i grew up playing solitary sports: gymnastics, tennis, spring board diving, and sprinting in track. (i was high jumper too. at 5’2″ my gymnastics training helped me JUMP HIGH… this is a story for another day.)
At 18, i hit the road and began wandering the US gypsy-style. i played music in the streets, designed & sold jewelry, offered healing sessions, and imported goods from mexico to sell at festivals. I was committed to creating life on my own terms. This developed my entrepreneurial skills and yet also amplified my rebellious “i can do it by myself” protection strategy.
I am a freepsirit. i enjoy traveling and living solo. i am fiercely independent.
I long for evolutionary, authentic, and affectionate relationships.
My lone wolf story is now a self-fulfilling prophecy of loneliness. I am writing a new story. I am re-programming my subconscious to open and receive loving & creative community.
I AM HOWLING TO FIND MY PACK! Can you hear me?!
It may not be graceful as i share my message, uncover the truths i have kept hidden, shift my image, let go of walls that have kept me safe and removed from you and my tribe. This will likely be messy and you may question me and my sanity. As i see it, this is the only way for me to come out of hiding and find my pack.
i am committed to shine my authentic light.
i am willing to meet my shadow.
i will find my way out of this self-created prison.
This may not seem that radical since you may already know I LOVE TO DANCE. I could have chosen a 30 day or even 90 day commitment yet something inside of me wanted a DEEP & POTENT container to awaken and engage my creativity every day. i long for a place to move through and with my fears/emotions/patterns/ecstasy over a long period of time, so i made the commitment to dance every day for ONE YEAR! wwwooohhhooo.
You may wonder… what does dancing have to do with creativity? I am an un-trained dancer, meaning i have never taken dance classes until this year. i love to move, shake, express, jump, hop, shimmy, hoop, roll, move wildly, tip-toe softly, make things up and dance like nobody is watching. Ecstatic dance is a container that allows me to be myself and move through and with ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING i feel. for me, dance is totally liberating. instead of dancing once or twice per month when i make it to the gatherings, i am ecstatic dancing daily!
Today marks day #22 in my year long dance party and i have discovered, uncovered and learned so much about myself and my dedication to dance already.
Some days have been full-on with dance music pumping, my body-mind jumping, heart pumping, booty shaking dance party in my living room.
During my 4 day camping trip a few weeks ago i explored dancing in the wilderness and i was fascinated by what emerged during these dances. (stay tuned for the wilderness dance video)
There have been a couple late nights with soft music playing, candles burning, slow moving, a meditation in motion.
This past friday night i got dressed up for a dance party in my living room and had a blast dancing in my fancy dress, golden sparkly shoes and gold belt.
My intention to show up daily and discover new ways to explore and express my creativity has been 100% delicious. i have found the depth of my commitment to show up and dance is so powerful and non-negotiable already. YAY! this is exactly what i wanted.
Please share in the comments, how do you like to express your creativity through movement?
Pick one practice to focus on shifting in your life for the next 30 days.
I often find clients want to transform all their habits in one go!
I like to ensure you set yourself up for success, pick one thing to do, add, change for 30 days in a row.
I will be posting videos for 30 days in order to share more of my expertise and to develop the habit of creating videos, join me on the journey!
Sometimes the best medicine for being afraid to share & speak something is……
to publish it on youtube for everyone to see, the WHOLE WORLD WIDE WEB!
Then somehow…. magically.
I am no longer afraid.
There is no reason to fear someone finding out my secret wish…. since i already told you.
I feel better. Thank you for listening.
The deal is…. you just gotta watch this video.
I cannot explain.
You have no idea how hard it was to post this video. All the voices in my head going WILD with their opinions….. watch and let me know if you can relate.
Welcome to my madness! mwahahaha!
New years is an incredible time to make shifts and set intentions. I like to utilize every opportunity to clarify my intentions, increase my focus and to make adjustments when necessary.

Please share your intention in the comments section below, how do you wish to feel in 2013?
Today is the last day of 2012, what an incredibly transformative year it has been!
The completion of the year and beginning of the next cycle offer an opportunity to create a powerful intention to create clarity in your life. Instead of making a “new years resolution” which most often dissolve before the end of January. I invite you to take time today to declare your commitment to how you wish to feel in 2013.
I created this short video for you about how I am creating “Up-Level City” for my life and business.
Check out the video for insights & tips for how you can up-level your life too.

All my love,
