There is power in clarity, and writing down what you want to call into your life. It propels you into what you really want and allows you to get out of the cloud of thoughts that swirl around in your head.
If you were to choose one word, one theme for 2019 what would it be and how would that word support you in everything you want to create for yourself?
Are you clear? Really clear? Have you written it down?
This is going to be a big year for you, but you must lay a strong foundation. You must reflect, release, pause, tune in, and align with what you are being called to create in 2019.
Dive deep and really listen to the whispers of your soul.
Before the month ends, find the time and space you need to get clear, and refuel your tank to move forward empowered and inspired.
Uncover or deepen your connection to your vision, and ensure your foundation is strong enough to hold all that is to come.
No matter where you are on your journey, take some time to sit and really think about what you want to bring to life this year.
Here are a few journal prompts to start with:
1. What words best describe how you most want to FEEL in 2019?
How do you want to feel in your…
2. What type of person do you need to be in order to create the life of your dreams? How would you look, think, act, speak, behave? You can use examples of people you know who are already living the life you desire.
3. What one new healthy habit or daily ritual will help propel you in the direction of your dreams?
4. If you were to choose one word, one theme word for 2019 what would it be??
Don't take on too much or you will set yourself up to fail! Flex your commitment muscle by staying radically committed to the ONE theme you choose to work on!
Commit to making choices that are in alignment with your long-term vision for your ideal body, business, life and relationships.
Choose a theme to work on, WRITE IT DOWN.
The core theme that I have chosen for 2019 is…DETERMINED!
Being determined is about tapping into a warrior like inner strength that pushes me through fear and resistance. It is about being determined to reach my goals no matter what, as I take each step with intention, heart, and soul.
With determination I will cultivate inner strength, physical strength and mental strength to help me be of service in an even bigger way.
Determination is about grit AND grace. To me it is about intention, slowing down, tuning in and yet taking massive (aligned and inspired) action.
COMMENT BELOW...WHAT IS YOUR THEME WORD?
When you think about your wellbeing, do you consider your mindset and healing your past?
Whether you want a different result in your business or in the bedroom, the real work begins within.
Life is all about priorities and choices.
Getting support around inner work is the key that unlocks the door to your heart’s desires.
The alternative is a life of suffering no matter how subtle it may be.
Suffering becomes a choice when a path has been shown to you and you chose another stamp in your passport instead of investing in personal growth, or not fully showing up for the process (inner-work IS work).
Creating lasting positive change in your life requires courage, grit, sensitivity, compassion, desire, willingness, commitment and support.
Are you ready to make this THE YEAR where you powerfully show up for yourself, build a rock solid foundation, and set yourself free?

Almost two weeks now I got a phone call that my dad was in the ER and my life seems to have been flipped turned upside down.
My aunt had taken my dad to see his doctor after several months of not feeling well.
His blood sugar levels were massively elevated so his doctor told him to the V.A. hospital right away. He was put on a saline drip and insulin, they did some blood work and found something else.
His blood work showed he has Acute Myeloid Leukemia which would explain the fatigue, weight loss, bruising, discoloration and other symptoms he was having…
They admitted him and after a very long day and finally getting a room around midnight, he was checked in. The following day after further testing they confirmed the diagnosis and came up with a course of immediate chemotherapy treatment called 3x7.
He has been in the hospital since, Friday night he finished up the first round of chemo and now has to stay to rebuild his immune system. He's been feeling really crummy since Thursday, is very weak and has a hard time eating or digesting foods and keeping them down.
I've been there almost every day and have been staying overnight since Friday. I am so thankful I've been able to be there.
Right now, we need prayers that his immune system rebuilds, he regains his appetite and starts feeling stronger so he can go home. 🙏🏼💚
Here’s what we know:
🙏🏼We believe in the power of prayer and every single one of you who prays and keeps my dad’s healing in your heart is a massive blessing
🙏🏼We believe God is a miracle-worker and is healing him now, we believe in miracles!
🙏🏼We believe he is going to be a 50-60%er that goes into remission after this first round of treatment
🙏🏼We believe he is going to be a 15%’er that STAYS IN REMISSION
Here’s what we need:
🙏🏼Prayer, prayer, prayer… if you feel it in your heart, pray for my dad, send him your reiki healing, woo woo vibes, healing light, love, whatever tools you have in your treasure chest ✨🙏🏼🔮💚⚡️🌈🌺✨
🙏🏼Stories of HEALING cancer to inspire, encourage and uplift him
🙏🏼Recipes for nourishing, healing foods
🙏🏼Any supplements, alternative healing modalities, products that you know of that might help
Yesterday, I finally posted about this on Facebook and Instagram have since received an outpouring of love, prayer and support. I received referrals to ND clinics and personal recommendations, I'm very excited about what I've researched so far...thank you, thank you, thank you! 💚
Thank you friend, your loving, positive thoughts are a huge blessing. And thank you in advance for your love and support as I navigate this new journey.
Take a deep breath, this is intense and I'm fired up...
Fear and resistance are the only things holding you back from the life and relationships you deeply desire, PERIOD.
The voice of fear comes up with all sorts of reasons why it's not the right time for inner work and healing. A part in you knows there is deeper work to be done and another part tiptoes around ever making that decision to face it fully.
Fear sabotages your efforts to change because that frightened part in you feels more safe when things stay as they've always been (even if its causing you pain).
You may not even notice how deeply fear is rooted in your life. Fear shows up as massive resistance, addictive behaviors, avoidance, distraction, running, numbing, procrastination and drama. It gets in the way of your efforts to grow and heal. You have to stop giving in.
Here’s the deal…
When you commit to your own healing, you will discover, there is nothing to fear but fear itself.
Look at yourself and get really honest with who you are, how you’re showing up, what your part is in every situation, and how everything is happening FOR YOU.
If you’re radically honest with yourself, you will access one of the deepest experiences of empowerment you’ve ever known.
Greater self-awareness, having a growth mindset and personal responsibility are the gateway to a self-actualized future.
As you develop them, you literally have the keys to YOUR POWER in your hands, making it impossible to ever feel like a victim again.
If you truly live knowing there is always an opportunity for your growth, healing, or evolution in EVERY situation, you will know what it is to BE FREE.
No matter what happens, no matter how random, insignificant or out of your control a situation may appear, there is always something in it FOR YOU.
You get to choose what you make of it because YOU are the meaning maker of your life. In every situation, you will feel empowered or disempowered, closer to someone or further away, depending on how you choose to interpret what happened.
Learning how to do this is not easy. It's not easy to see blind spots and get out of your own way, or to see how intricately you've woven the story of your life to justify your belief in powerlessness. (take another deep breath...it's all good! We all do it until we know better and when we know better we can do better!)
Simply said, you need a guide.
You can only do so much on your own and if you truly want to breakthrough and break free, you must invest time and energy into your growth. There is no magical solution, it's about how much you show up for the process of growth that makes all the difference.
Make the decision right here, right now, to bust through your inner resistance, face your fears, and make yourself a priority.
Invest in your growth and decide to take it seriously.
Make your growth a priority, powerfully show up for yourself. Take that leap of faith and really go for it. It will be the most rewarding journey you've ever been on! Life will continue to get better and better the more awakened and healed you are.
If you're ready to create a life you truly, madly, deeply love, then LET’S DO THIS!
You are not alone, I'm here for you and stand for you living your highest potential always.

With tonight's full moon eclipse energy, you are being supported to to shed, let go, get clear, and DECIDE shift into a new way of being - RIGHT NOW!
This weekend, right now, it's on!
This is it, Decision time...
Journal, pray, meditate, TUNE IN.
Here are some additional notes on this astrological energy from Spirit Daughter (a monthly subscription I highly recommend).
Make sure you read until the end to find out how you can make this your YEAR OF YES!
This Leo Lunar Eclipse is a time for you to step into your power, to see your uniqueness, and to appreciate those around you. We each hold a distinct talent that when brought to the world lights up a piece of it. If we all shine our light, then the whole world brightens and the vibration of the planet elevates.
Allow this Lunar Eclipse to bring out the parts of your personality which you are afraid to show to those around you. Let go of the fear of rejection and embrace the notion that we are all one. If you accept yourself, so will your community.
What has been blocking you from manifesting your visions?
These are the energies to focus on this Lunar Eclipse.
Allow them to come to the surface of your consciousness, so the universe can help you break through any barriers and release what holds you back from becoming the Queen/King you already know you are.
As we learn to LOVE OURSELVES on a deeper level, we open the door to change the programming which rules our life.
Allow this Leo Eclipse to SHED any vibrations that are blocking your heart from fully opening. The heart is the seat of your true power. Feel into this, and allow your heart to bring you new patterns of energy which will replace outdated imprints, blocking your growth and your truth.
Are you feeling it? ARE YOU READY TO...
Are you ready to make this YOUR YEAR of YES?
If you want to build a rock solid foundation with practices that enable you to bring your best self to life, grow deep strong roots, shatter old patterns for good, stand grounded and unapologetic in your truth and desires, show up powerfully in your life, love, and business and BE the change you wish to see...Then my new program YEAR of YES is perfect for you!
I'll send more details this week, but if you can't wait, CLICK HERE!
I’ll let you in on a little secret... the process of inner work is so damn rewarding that it literally has the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE for the better, which is MAJOR MOTIVATIONAL MOJO if you ask me!
Do you really want to stay stuck in the same old patterns and attached to habits that don’t serve your highest and best good? Do you want to keep repeating the same difficult lessons time and time again?
Take a moment to project your life into the future if things stay exactly the same.
What would happen if you finally made those changes you’ve been yearning for? What if you healed your past, forgave and let-go, moved on and stepped into your personal power?
What does your future life look like now?
The beginning of the new year and the entire month of January is indeed a fantastic time to dream up the life you truly desire.
Does the cost of things staying the same outweigh your fear of taking action and busting through limiting beliefs and habits that might be keeping you stuck?

The holidays can be exciting, joyful and heartfelt, just as much as they can be stressful, disappointing and painful. This time of year, tools to stay grounded, find your center, be intentional, as well as present and non-reactive, can be really useful.
I think we all can relate to those feelings at one time or another. The holidays bring up a lot of stuff…
They stir up all that we wish we had, or wish was different. Monetary and relationship challenges tend to take center stage, or even loneliness, feeling like we don't have friends or family to turn to at all.
I want you to feel empowered, grounded, and aligned this holiday season, so below are 6 simple, yet powerful tools and strategies you can use right away to keep your cool and stay calm during the whirlwind that is the end of the year.
1. PAUSE - Carve out moments to pause
Take a long hot shower, enjoy a bubble bath, go for a walk, listen to soothing music, light a candle and turn down the lights, get a massage, pedicure, or even go the spa or sauna.
If you have a regular meditation practice, make sure you commit to it (twice) daily for the holiday season. Add more mindfulness and meditation if you need to. If you feel the cortisol levels in your body rising, stop, drop in, and meditate!

The most important thing is your PRESENCE. Be present with whatever you do. The more present you are, the less stress you will have. And remember, the greatest gift you can give is your presence.
2. BREATHE - Connecting to your breath
This is one of the simplest and fastest ways to calm down and bring you back to the present (when we are out of the present we become anxious or fearful). Breathe deeply for as long as you need to calm your emotions and allow the stream of thoughts in your mind to soften and get quieter. Listen to soothing music, dim the lights, and just keep breathing.
3. CENTER - Find your center
When you feel yourself getting off track, your buttons being pushed, feeling anxious, frustrated or fearful, take a moment to ground by coming back to your breath and drop inside.
Connect to your heart and feel your center. Come back to you. You can also take a walk outside (intentionally) to help ground you.
4. ALIGN - Stay aligned with your highest and best good
Allow yourself to say no to things that don't feel like they will add to your life force. Set healthy boundaries and get clear on what YOU need for YOU. Claim it, speak from your heart, and share your truth. Honor your needs and make sure to give yourself what you need so that you can show up and be present for others.
5. CONNECT - Take time to connect deeply
Don't go to holiday parties and stay on the surface of life. Allow yourself to be vulnerable, share deeper, and connect deeper. Get to know someone you normally wouldn't talk to. Keep it real. Open up and invite others into your circle. Remember, we need each other and there are many people out there who feel very alone during the holidays, so reach out when you can.
6. PLAY - Make sure to play
Laugh and walk through the streets with childlike wonder. Play with the box, not the toy. Be appreciative and infuse your heart and soul with joy. Dance in the living room after dinner, run through the snow, watch funny movies (I would recommend The Vacation if you haven't seen it)! Just make sure to bring more play into your holiday. Lighten things up a bit and don't take it all so seriously... Life is meant to be enjoyed!
Don't let this holiday season pass you by without remembering to pause, tune in and be intentional with everything you do. Be clear about your intentions (desired outcome, reason for giving, etc.) and hold those intentions close to your heart.
It’s so easy to get caught up in obligations, entertaining, and to-do lists, that we forget our own self-care and find ourselves stressed out, triggered, and then totally drained by the time the new year starts.
Take some time to recalibrate and be still. Use the tools above and let this be the year where you make a conscious choice to create a new story.
Cheers to you this holiday season,

There is saying, "where attention goes, energy flows" meaning, wherever you place your attention is where your energy goes and therefore, grows.
A question I often ask my clients is, "what is your point of focus?"
If you are looking for or focused on what isn't right, you’re going to find more things that aren't right. When you focus on what is working, you find more things that are working.
This is especially important to remember in relationships.
Whatever you believe, you are right and you will find evidence to back up those beliefs!
If you believe you are telling yourself that your partner isn't showing up for you, you will find evidence to back it up.
Attention + energy = focus = your experience of reality.
What might happen if you shift your focus to how they are showing up and what they are doing instead? What might the ripple of that be (it is all goodness, I promise)?
Imagine for a moment all of the blessings in your life...
✨ Think only about what is good and right.
✨ Find things to appreciate.
✨ Let your heart be filled with happy thoughts.
Take a deep breath and breathe those blessings into your heart. Allow yourself to feel just how lucky you are to be alive today. To be living and breathing one more day...
If you focus on the abundance and blessings you already have, you will experience more abundance and blessings.
Your energy is a big magnet attracting like energy. What you focus on and think about is what you are attracting.
Your attention is your greatest currency, so be mindful of the energy you are investing in.
Sending you all my love,

PS...It's true, when I count my blessings, I count you twice 😘
Happy Thanksgiving!! (and full moon!)
If you've been following me for a while you probably know Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love how the focus is preparing a delicious family meal and coming together in gratitude and appreciation for each other and life in general.
On that note, I wanted to share just how grateful I am that you are here. I am truly, deeply grateful, thank you!
And I don't mean that in a cheesy, cliche way, it really does mean the world to me that you are a part of this community. It's because of you that I keep going and feel encouraged to continue.
It fills my heart with joy that you are on this path of awakening and inner work with me. I truly believe that this is the most important work we can all be doing both individually and collectively to make this world a better place... so once again, thank YOU!
Just in case you didn't know, today is also a FULL MOON during mercury retrograde... double whammy!
Full moon energy often equals heightened emotions, drama, and a bit of chaos where the hidden aspects of your life that aren't working are brought to light. Add mercury retrograde into the mix and you could potentially be dealing with some major crazy at the dinner table!
Check it out:
"Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius can make everyone doubly tactless. With this hotheaded energy flying around, choose your words carefully. Sagittarius is prone to overreact and fly off the handle, and when everyone feels that way, there can be a ton of drama firing off from all directions. Even the most polite, soft-spoken person might get caught in the crossfire of the heated arguments sure to pop off during this particularly high-energy retrograde.
This final retrograde of 2018 (and the energy of Mercury in Sagittarius in general) helps you speak your truth and defend your beliefs unapologetically—even if it means ending relationships and cutting off loose ends in the process. This has been a year of transformation and tons of tough changes. The clutter has been cleared out, though, and after this final speed bump ends on December 6, it’s clear skies ahead in 2019!" - (taken from jakesastrology)
So what can you when the shit hits the fan??
Soul Care Rx
What you focus on you experience more of so immediately shift your focus to something good... look around you, practice gratitude. What can you appreciate about this moment? What you appreciate, appreciates.
Can you even eventually find humor in the chaos?
When I take a step back and witness the crazy, instead of engage with the crazy, and I shift my perspective to see how everyone is just reacting out of their own fears and insecurities, I can have greater compassion AND find the humor in the insanity.
One last thought before you finish up your holiday preparations.
What if this were your last meal on earth? How would you want to show up for yourself and for others? What would you want them to know? I know that's a heavy question but it can shift your focus fast and drop you back into what matters most.
