A Thought on Money Mindset and Abundance

A Thought on Money Mindset and Abundance

Let’s talk about what it means to live a happy life + be successful.
Lately, this topic is coming up soooooooo much lately. Probably because I have so many new life coaching clients on my plate, and a lot of them are longing for that happiness and success they believe they can create.
No duh they can create it. I mean, we all can. The problem is that most of us are just trying to create it the wrong way.
I used to be pretty stubborn about this too.
Take me before my transformation as an example:
I wanted things in my physical world because I believed that once I got them, then I would be happy. And I was working pretty damn hard to try and get these things.
A better body
More money
A better love life
Basically a better everything (because life was pretty terrible back then.)
So yeah…. I set goals in all of these areas like a crazy goal setting list making nerd.
I was so stuck in all of these areas, but the worst of them was my financial situation. I knew of all these areas, I needed to work on my financial situation the most.
I could not make the money I wanted to make. So I decided to work harder at it (mistake number one. )
In an effort to change my life, I spent almost all of my energy wrapping my head around how to make more money, how to be a better business owner — Nothing followed suit. My financial situation stayed the same.
At some point I stopped being stubborn and I shifted into receiving everything I wanted.
A while back I needed to do some work on this myself and shift of the mindset of “money is scarce.” I spent months doing inner work on what money meant to me, what worth meant to me, and what I believed was success. I literally sat there in my meditation room with a journal for days rewriting my narrative of life around these topics.
I did the inner work, and then boom. Suddenly I opened up to receive so much more in my life.
 
So let’s talk about this: Because I think a lot of people out there screw this up.
 
We do not attract what we want. We attract who we are.
 
If you want to be successful, you need to create a mindset of success and wealth first.
 
If you want to be healthy and happy in your body and your physical life, you first need to be healthy and happy in your mind.
 
So many people out there are doing things ass backwards. They try to change their physical world thinking, “okay, once I do this, then everything will be cool in my life, and I’ll finally be happy.”
 
um. Sorry. No babe.
 
I love you. But no.
 
Here are my tips for quickly shifting into an inspired state and shifting out of this mindset.
 
1. Think the thoughts aligned with what it is you want in your life. (what type of thoughts will I feel and believe when I reach this goal of mine?)
2. Be that person you imagine you will be when you already reach that goal. (journal about this – what does she do, how does she act – what are her values in life?)
3. Create absolute faith that what you want will happen. Go beyond the world of what you see in your present life and step into a place of certainty that no matter what you want you will achieve it.
4. Continuously be growing, expanding and evolving your education and knowledge about what it is you want to achieve. (no matter what.)

10 Ways Essential Oils Changed My Life

10 Ways Essential Oils Changed My Life

So what the heck is this crazy oil nonsense I keep spewing on social media? It’s not nonsense – but it is crazy how in just two years these little oils have changed my life. And I need to talk about it.

You guys know from all of my recent meditation posts on the blog that I am so into my spiritual practice lately. Seriously it is soooooo my jam right now. I wake up, go into my meditation room, get in zen mode and that is how I start my day almost every day.

Its the bees knees.

But I wasn’t always like this. The truth is emotional wellness wasn’t really my thing for quite a  while. I lived life like an emotional rollercoaster all the damn time.

But then I found my spiritual practice and it changed everything. So today I wanted to take some time to break down one of my favorite most vital self love saviors: Essential oils.

 

 

What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are nature’s finest purest form of plant life condensed into a little bottle. Cold pressed oils derived from plants. I have Lavender oil (which I use for sleep time) Melaleuca Tea Tree Oil (which I use for my skin) and Orange oil (which I use to make the house smell beautiful.) I use these oils for a whole lot more but basically the point I want to get at is that these little bottles contain 100 percent pure plant oil – and all different types of plants!

How do you use them?

I get this question a lot. You can diffuse them, apply them topically on the skin, or you can ingest them (depending on the plant) But you can also make a lot of really awesome beauty recipes. I no longer use store bought soaps or shampoo anymore thanks to these bad boys.

 

 

Now the big breakdown: The 10 Biggest Ways Essential Oils Changed my Life

1.I no longer have depression or anxiety. And I no longer have to take medication for those things after 10 years. Yup. No joke. I use oils in my meditation practice and I wear them topically all the time and they literally cured my anxiety. Aromatherapy is a real thing guys. It works. Ask the google.

2. I no longer need to take sleeping aids to go to bed and I sleep blissfully through the night every single night. Coming from the girl who couldn’t sleep 3 hours straight without waking up from a nightmare or stress – I fall asleep within seconds of hitting the pillow now with diffusing lavender oil in the room. My fiancé says he sleeps better too!

3. I don’t need to be cold medication when we get sick because oils clear up my sinus’ every time. I put peppermint oil underneath my nose and BOOM. gone.

4. My house smells like Martha Stewart lives here all the damn time. Orange oil – Rosemary Oil, Lemon oil – the list goes on .. Every time I am diffusing oils in the kitchen my heart warms up. Plus I avoid allergy issues and soy candles.. so that’s cool.

5.  Speaking of Allergies. I have zero. Yes. Zero. I totally attribute this to using oils and keeping my sinuses healthy with the oils I diffuse all the time in the house.

6. I heal migraines and neck pain instantly with oils. Its a LIFE SAVER. There’s an oil called Deep blue that I use and it saves me every time. a little bit on my neck and back and boom I’m all better!

7. My spiritual practice is crazy beautiful with oils. I meditate and manifest my desires. I can say prayers for self love and abundance and receive what I am looking for.. Each oil and plant  has a deep spiritual root that is tied to enhancing and releasing certain emotions like fear, stress anxiety, overwhelm, doubt, anger, rage, depression. I mean it is crazy awesome what these oils do for my mind.

8. My beauty care rituals are on fleek (*if that’s still a thing*) Yeah..people are always asking how I make my skin so clear and I just tell them – it’s the oils! no wrinkles, no bags, no pimples. IT’s awesome.

9. I have continual self confidence and self love. The minute I started working with these bad boys, so much changed. My confidence grew, my inner awareness developed, my intuition blossomed. It was awesome. Seriously. I swear these little oil bottles are my secret to constant confidence and self love.

10. Peace is now a practice and a choice I can make every single day. No matter what I am always grounded and clear minded.

 

Now it’s your turn.

If you want to get started on oils, this is always the kit I recommend – its 100 percent therapeutic grade and beautiful. This month (May) if you enroll you get 50 dollars back – which is awesome. This is the “Aromatouch diffuser kit.”

Go to – whatisperfection.com/oils/ and then register as a free “wellness advocate.” after you create your account it will ask you to pick a kit. This is the Aromatouch diffuser kit.

It’s beautiful. Comes with everything shown here.

My Meditation Corner Pt. 2

My Meditation Corner Pt. 2

Guys I feel like I’m nesting a baby in this room lately. Except it’s my soul – not an infant I’m preparing for.

Gosh that sounds cheesy. But no for real, there is something about my meditation corner that just makes me feel so incredibly inspired, blessed and at peace. A while back I shared with you some of the decorating I was doing in my meditation room in this post here.

But today I wanted to give you an update – since somethings have changed!

Do you need help picking out meditation tools? Check out this post. I break down all my favorite meditation must haves for my practice. I love using essential oils, crystals, prayer cards and mala beads!

This corner is my newest addition to my meditation space. I found myself sitting in my recliner seat journaling and facing the fire place with this big open space of nothing over here – and it drove me nuts. “I need to create something in this space!” So I went out and bought a book shelf and started building my personal development library!

I have a TON of books – but I decided this shelf would be just for my personal development collection. I just finished The Art of Living by Bob Proctor and it was so good! I’m going to his event in California in October. Btw. He has over 1,000 books in his personal development library! I have a lot of catching up to do!

Of course I have buddha and zen decor everywhere. This beautiful pearl head releases Lavender essential oil and makes the room smell amazing!  I got it from Homegoods.

And of course, I have my crystals everywhere. This is Chrysocolla & Druzy a rare form of my favorite stone to work with lately. I had to snag it when I saw it in the crystal shop this week!

And of course, my meditation room is not complete with out my salt lamp, money tree and Chakra balancing Candles. I love it. I love it so much. I could probably spend the rest of my life in this space and be happy!

 

I hope this post inspires you to go out and create your own little meditation corner or space in your home.

How to Reinvent Yourself

How to Reinvent Yourself

This morning I posted a narrative on my Facebook page. It was sort of a soul reflection on how I got to the place I am in today.

I am the possibility that all people can reinvent themselves.

In 2008 I was raped and walked away from my life to reinvent myself.
In 2012 I left a drug-addicted husband, and reinvented myself as a single woman.
In 2013 I was able to heal and rebuild – landing myself in my first apartment – reinventing myself as “successful” for the first time. 
In 2015 I walked away from an unhealthy career and created What is Perfection LLC.

Now I am here. With Purpose, Passion, and a Fire in my soul.

The old me would have never been able to receive this joy.

But like I said: I am the possibility that all people can reinvent themselves.

In order to follow our dreams and become who we are meant to be, we need to shed the old parts of ourselves that hold us back. That means transforming who we are.

In my life, I have shed a lot of things in the process of reinventing myself to follow my dreams. I’ve lost weight, let go of unhealthy people, gave away possessions, released negative emotions, and said goodbye to the old version of me I didn’t like.

I am still reinventing myself today. Why? Because suffering is the result of unfulfilled dreams. And I refuse to suffer.

At some point you must take the next step. Make a commitment to have what you want in life and then make a plan to get it. It’s there waiting for you, but most likely it isn’t going to just fall into your lap.

Release the negative holding you back. Reinvent the human you are so that you can level up to the dreams you have for your life. And then?

GO GET IT.

 

But what if you want to reinvent yourself but you don’t know how? What if you are trying to achieve some bigger than you goal in your brain right now and it feels almost impossible to get there.

This – ladies and gents – is about learning to perfect the art of “Closing the gap.” Getting you from where you are to where you want to be in life.

And all of that, starts from within.

 

How to Reinvent Yourself

1.Start getting clear about what needs to leave your life. 

This is probably the biggest most powerful shift you can make in your life – removing the negativity.  I also think it’s truthfully one of the hardest. Some of us aren’t even aware of the negative in our life until it slaps us right in the face. Do you have friends who belittle you? Does your mother make you feel insignificant? Maybe your home is so cluttered with reminders of the past you have a hard time moving forward. Whatever it is – learning to recognize what doesn’t serve you and getting rid of it is the first step in reinventing yourself.

 

2.Figure out who you truly want to be.

This is one of the most exciting legs of the journey – redesigning the vision you have for you life!  If you are a person who doesn’t like change – then lets face it, this might be a hard part of the process for you. But then again you probably wouldn’t be reading this post anyway. Asking yourself important questions about the life you want will lay the solid foundation for change. Do you want to make more money? Do you want to be more kind? Perhaps you have this crystal clear picture of you and your dream love sitting on a beach, or buying a house and raising a family. Get clear about the vision. Paint it. Paint it with all the pretty colors you can possibly imagine. And then execute it.

 3.Set your goal, pick a deadline and take massive action. 

Hire a coach, invest in a program, do something crazy serious to train yourself/ mold into the person you want to be. It’s pretty simple guys. In order to stretch into a new human being, you need to do some of the hard work. That may mean investing in a vision greater than your present state right now. It may mean doing things that are scary and overwhelming and full of fear.

 4. Walk with the fear to become that new version of you.  

So since you know what you want now  get really good at strategy for getting there. It doesn’t mean things are going to be perfect right away – but learning to realign yourself with the higher version of you that you want to be is so important. Learn how to take those big scary leaps that will make you grow and propel you into the person you want to be. If it doesn’t scare you – then you aren’t dreaming big enough!

 

The Real Truth About Running Your Own Business.

The Real Truth About Running Your Own Business.

Anyone who ever tells you that it’s easy to make six figures running your own business needs a good old slap in the face. It’s not. It’s the hardest thing ever. Next to childbirth.

It was hard for me. Although I’ve never had a baby so I have really no idea how hard that thing is, I can tell you that getting my business to where it is today was the most challenging obstacle I have ever overcome in my life. And if you know me by now, you know I have been through a lot.

Lately I have been getting those messages from people wanting to know how they too can launch and thrive in their own creative space of entrepreneur life. And it’s always a question that I am excited to answer, but also have no clue how to answer at the same time.

“How did you get your business off the ground?”

and

“What did you do to make WIP as successful as it is today?”

If these are the questions I am getting now at this stage – I can’t wait to see where I’m at in five years!

I am always excited to answer questions like that because – well lets face it – I messed up a LOT in my life. Now that I finally figured out the right stuff to do – it’s kind of cool to talk about it and share it with the world. And I am always up for talking about the good stuff to celebrate how I got here. But trying to answer those questions is also really confusing for me too.

Where exactly do you want me to start?  And Am I really successful? Is this it? Like.. is this the real deal now? Can I relax and take off my lady boss pants, put on my pajamas and binge watch Netflix for the rest of my life? Yes! Finally! Success!

It’s time I get real with you guys about the questions – and give you the answers bold and raw. You run a business other there? You trying to launch your own brand? Listen up. This post is for you.

 

I see ads on my Facebook all the time – “Make your first 10K” and “Learn how to create your first six figure launch,” – I some times wonder if whatever they are teaching is what I am practicing. Do I run my sales funnels the right way?  Do I network and advertise my programs properly? It’s really easy at this stage to fall into that trap of constantly trying to figure out if you are doing it right. Well guess what. You are doing it wrong. All of us are.

So here’s me telling you everything that I know and believe about running a solo business. The truth. At least the truth for now. This is everything I wish I knew back then when I started. And some of you out there may not believe the advice, or take the advice or even listen to it. But here’s my advice on that (lol) – take the parts that work for you and leave behind whatever isn’t valuable in this post. Consider it practice for the mindset you should have running your own biz! Taking what works and leaving behind what doesn’t … you are gonna have to get used to doing that a lot. Okay. Here we go.

-Numbers Are a Big Lying Sack of Poop. I used to sit around and count the dollars rolling into my bank account each month. In fact, talk about nerding out – I used to keep a chart where I would track my income each month just to make sure I was improving and growing at the rate I was “supposed to be.” I still have no idea what the heck that rate was. And it wasn’t just money numbers. I would do this with social media numbers, page followers – everything. Seriously, every month I would track my income, my ad revenue, my sales, my Facebook followers, my instagram followers, my number of email subscribers, my website visitors. I mean seriously. I had this ridiculous excel spreadsheet that I was keeping track of to document all of my growth. I promised myself that every single month would be better than the month before – and yes.. I had to be better in each of those categories. It was…. exhausting. And ridiculous. And pointless all at the same time.  Why was I doing it? Because in the beginning – I wanted to make myself believe that I was achieving success – and for me at the time – I thought that meant money. You see… when you start a business everyone shames you. Everyone tells you that you can’t or that it’s going to be hard or that you are crazy… and so that really weighed on me in the beginning. And if I had the numbers to prove I was successful, then I could finally say “YES AH HA! See! I LOOK WHAT I DID!” It was pointless. Stop it. Stop it right now. Your numbers have literally NOTHING to do with your success.

-No one gives a shit about your success so stop obsessing about “not failing.” Let’s just roll into this one since its on the tip of my brain here. Yeah. Stop obsessing about NOT failing. And if you’re obsessing over not failing because you don’t wan to be a failure to other people, well Stop even sooner please. If you run your business paranoid about making all the right choice because you don’t want to fail – you might as well quit. You are going to fail. And people are going to see it. You are going to make big messy giant failures that people will laugh at and make faces at and hey – guess what – it’s their problem not yours. Because while they are sitting around playing “same old life,” you are out there learning from whatever that big failure was and making even better decisions for your business. What they think means nothing. They are not you’re ideal client and they don’t own your “permission to success” ticket. Let them go so you can grow. Which brings me to my next point.

-There is no right way to do anything. Remember those ads I mentioned before? The ones that show you how you’re doing it wrong? Yes. Like I said. We all are. But here’s the thing. So are they! I work with a lot of clients who are trying to market their businesses in the online space. And they tell me “So and so is doing this,” and so “so and so is doing that, should I try it?” They spend so much time learning what others are doing that they spend so little time trying to figure out what works for them. Don’t be on twitter because you’re “supposed to have a presence there.” Be on twitter if it works for you. And if it doesn’t, F it and move on. Oh… and another thing.

-What Worked 2 years ago will get you nowhere today. I used to spend hours trying to study successful online bloggers – how did they possibly grow their audience so big that they could make a living off of ad revenue? Well.. Those bloggers? They’ve been in the market online since before the internet was even a thing – And so now – 10 plus years later – they are thriving. Do you want to wait ten years to afford food on your table? I don’t think so. Stop looking to other people and do what you notice works for you. Develop your own method. Create your own sales funnel. Come up with your own marketing strategy. Success leaves clues so finding people who are successful and modeling them is definitely a bonus -but don’t use their practices as a cookie cutter way to create your own business.

-If you aren’t sharing your life you’re failing your business People WANT to see you. And they want to see your shit. It doesn’t matter what you are selling, what product you rep or what shake you drink (sorry fitness MLMs) What matters is YOU. your client isn’t buying an awesome product. This isn’t 1950. There are awesome products everywhere. This is the land of amazon where you can literally get what you want delivered to your door. No customer is going to buy your product just because it’s awesome. They are going to buy into whatever you are selling because they resonate with the story you tell and the personality you have and the things you have overcome to be the person you are today. Because that’s what THEY want. People want to level up – so if you don’t show them you are leveling up in your life too – then what’s the point?

-If you are feeling emotionally disconnected to what you are creating/sharing/posting about – your potential clients will be disconnected to it too. “my upline tells us to do this,” and “my upline says I should be sharing X amount of photos per day with the shake or the workout or whatever.” Does it make you feel good? Does it feel authentic? Does it resonate with you? If the answer is no, guess what – that system is dead for you. Kill it. Say goodbye. Don’t go back. You should never be trying to be something your not. And btw isn’t that totally the opposite reason of why you became an entrepreneur right?

-You should never have to hound hunt or private message randos about your business to make your business work. If you are doing it, you are doing something wrong. your business is not a  telemarking service. Stop running it like it is. When you show up to serve the community and be that shinning light for people who need your help – then your clients will randomly appear!

-Entrepreneurs need to be spiritual junkies. If you have no faith in God or have little spirituality out there and your hustling running your business – I am so sorry for you. I don’t care what faith you have – just find one and hold onto it. Entrepreneur life is a rollercoaster. Go get a spiritual practice. And hang on tight. You’re gonna need it.

Stay tuned for a part 2.

A Recap of Amazing Journal Ideas

A Recap of Amazing Journal Ideas

Hi Guys! Been quite a while since I’ve been on here hasn’t it? I have been so busy not being busy lately – aka relaxing, enjoying my zen weekends and just really grounding myself regularly. Now I am back, feeling strong and ready to rock!

So much has been happening in the WIP Tribe. This week we are running an amazing five day Manifest Confidence Challenge in a separate private group. There are 53 awesome rockstars in there kicking butt and getting ready to manifest their dreams. It’s such a transformative space, I love the energy of the group.

But in the tribe, one of the things we are always focusing on (especially if you’re in the Manifest Confidence Challenge Group) is journaling. Journaling is really, really important. I would say it is probably number two on my list of healthy things I must do every day. – second to drinking water.

So yesterday in the tribe I posed this:

Hey WIP Tribe! This evening our Manifest Confidence Challengers are doing some deep reflection with a homework assignment and it had me feeling inspired to jump into the tribe and share some thoughts with you –

Journaling is literally the biggest game changer for me.

When someone asks me “What’s the one thing you suggest to someone trying to get happy or improve their life,” I always say Journaling. It is what saved my life.

So, A lot of people journal different ways – Some people write about how their day goes, other people journal poems or stories or little pieces of creative art.

I like to focus on Manifesting Journaling. I use my journal to dream about the future, set new goals, start brainstorming big changes and asking the universe for help and guidance.

I try to do it every day. How do you guys journal? Do you find yourself going with the flow or do you use journal prompts?

I was so surprised that so many of the girls in the group had a hard time finding the inspiration to actually get those juices flowing. So today I wanted to take some time to share some of my journaling posts from the past!  Think you’ll love them!

Daily Note Taking: When I journal – I always do it a different way. (There is no right or wrong way to get those thoughts out girl!) One of the ways I notice a lot of people journaling is the “How my day went” log. You know – this happened, then this happened, and then this happened. To me, that isn’t really what I use my journal for. Thats more like diary writing. Sure if something major happens in my day and I want to celebrate it I certainly write about it, but I do more with my book than just log events.

Self Love Journaling: Self Love journaling is one of my favorite ways to journal. Daily journal prompts are positive questions that help you reflect on your identity and grow your confidence. They are a series of important questions related to happiness and confidence that help you rediscover who you are and what makes you YOU. Because by asking yourself the right questions and taking time to reflect on “why makes you you,” it’s easy to grow your self love.

Click here to get the free self love journal PDF Guide

Gratitude Journaling: Gratitude Journaling is also one of my go to favorites. I actually make it a part of my routine where every night I write out a list of three things I am grateful for that happened that day. Positive questions will help you retrain your brain to think differently about yourself and about your life. Make sure those questions are emotionally charged and phrased in a way that you are forced to think of the positive.

Goal Setting Journaling: I love love love this type of journaling just because it helps me get so crystal clear about my dreams. When I know I want something for my future, but I have a hard time feeling like it is actually possible (aka because its a big goal or its going to be a lot of work to get there) I write out a list of what it is I Want and all the reasons why I want it. Then I jump into a goal setting strategy by getting specific about my goal and breaking down how I am going to get there. It’s called “reverse engineering” your goals. And it works! Oh. There’s a free guide for that too!

Well Those three guides will definitely get you started no matter how stuck you feel or how hard of a time you have journaling. I hope you guys all enjoy them! Let me know if you have any questions <3

Perfect Week Recap Volume II

Perfect Week Recap Volume II

Man oh man did last week go by so fast!!! It was Easter week, and even though I consider myself to be more spiritual and less Catholic – the holidays are always a beautiful time to gather with my loved ones and celebrate. So, here’s a recap of my amazing week and how it all started!

 

Matt and I celebrated our 3 Year Anniversary this week! Yes. It was absolutely beautiful. We took time snuggling up on our gorgeous new patio set on the deck. We had wine, ate pizza and indulged ourselves in some quality relaxation.

For our anniversary I got him a set of cooking knives since he loves to cook. He got me this beautiful gorgeous addition to my meditation corner. It’s supposed to go outside in our zen garden, but I think for now I want to keep him here!

I actually switched things up a few days later in the room -when a friend of mine told me that Buddha is supposed to be at eye level with you. Now he sits on that beautiful gold table. I’ll share some pics later this week! Or you could just check it out on my instagram.

This was the last week I had to eat regular food, so I definitely enjoyed it on Easter Sunday. I got my juicer in the mail last week too! And before my juice cleanse started this week I tested it out with some vegetables. I am obsessed with it. It’s seriously the best investment I have made.

 

So I spent the rest of the week Enjoying my yummy food, hosting the holiday with my family and celebrating good times. We drank lots of wine, ate delicious cheesy food and had yummy treats after. My favorite part of the meal was all the cheese because I know I’m going to miss that the most on my new vegan diet (more on that later.)

 

I was so stressed out preparing for our guests that this shirt seemed appropriate. Hosting a dinner party was literally the most adult thing I have done in my life. It was pretty serious.

But of course.. It was the most amazing time. I decorated and the food looked amazing. <3 Thanks Mat for doing most of the cooking. And yes, that gross bone in the corner is my dads. He like’s to eat like an animal sometimes. 

All in all it was delicious! We had dinner really early so when everything was done I got into zen mode.

On Monday ( the day after easter) I started a serious cleansing – 21 days of intense juicing, fruits and veggies. So I wanted to make sure I was in the right state of mind. I took the rest of the afternoon to stay calm, connect with myself through some journaling and yes- play with my goddess cards. This is my favorite reading I have gotten thus far – I had it when I was asking about what’s ahead for my healthy lifestyle journey. Talk about amazing right?

 

Here are some more snaps from the week in case you are curious what I’m up to. Basically I’m using my oils, reading, and catching up on relaxation!

 

Perfect Week Volume I

Perfect Week Volume I

This week has been so beautiful. So beautiful, in fact, that I need to honor it with a full blog post. Lately there have been so many positive changes in my life spiritually and physically that I feel like sometimes I have trouble slowing down. I am often in such a rush to get ahead and do things that need to be done. I think it’s my fear of having this amazing happiness streak run out – so I try to hustle as much as possible. I don’t like operating that way, so I made it a point to slow down and appreciate it.

When I look back on this week, I feel so grateful for having the opportunity to learn that lesson. I actually saw a drastic shift in my attitude and the way I work this week.

There is no sense in hustling all the time if you can’t take time to appreciate the calm moments of life.

So here’s my recap!

A Perfect Week Volume One

I think this is how it all started…. last week, I found a beautiful letter from my business coach Ryan Yokome. (Go check him out, he’s awesome.) Yes.. I found it.

Finding this letter was a magical experience in itself. Call it divine timing – Ryan sent me his beautiful “I can Receive this” mantra poster a few weeks ago in the mail as a surprise gift, but I never noticed there was a card in the delivery envelope. It seems like I found his letter at the perfect time because his words brought tears to my eyes and made me feel so full of love. It was just what I needed to hear at the time I found it. So grateful.

Ryan isn’t just a business mentor for me, he is also a spiritual guide. Working with him I have really leveled up in so many ways but have also learned to express my heart in exploring new spiritual practices. This weekend I went to a beautiful Crystal shop to explore, learn, and pick my very first crystal to start my collection. Of COURSE I am going back there this weekend! Susan, the owner of the shop, is really amazing and she’s going to help me out doing a blog post about Crystal shopping for all of you!

The next day I felt so inspired I decided to finally create and design my meditation corner.   (See post here) I had been putting it off for a while because I wasn’t feeling inspired to do it – but of course Crystal shopping changed everything. So I did some shopping, picked new pieces of furniture and made my special place!

This is now my favorite corner of the house and I pass it every morning when I leave our bedroom to start my day. It totally lights me up.


These pics are all on my instagram page btw. (Come follow me here!)

We did a free training in the WIP TRIBE FACEBOOK GROUP on how to transform your body with the mind you already have – This was the self reflection worksheet we did!

My gorgeous Client sent me Pua!!!! It was a surprise gift and OMG did it totally fill me up with love. My most recent tattoo was inspired by the Disney Movie Moana and her pet pig Pua was like… the cutest character ever! Thank you Maria! I love you!

I spent some time learning about my new Goddess Cards (See my post on my meditation must haves this week) and had some really crazy intense readings each morning this week! I love that I have the routine of picking a new card every morning after my meditation practice. It helps me feel more present in my life .

This is the Goddess Kali. She reminds me that I am saying goodbye to my old self and starting a new story for my future. I pulled her card three times this week. Talk about crazy!

My other totally gorgeous client Rachel shared this picture with me – She ordered these books I recommend a while back. Coincidentally the day she signed on with me they were delivered to her house! And she got some new crystals too! I love them!

I’m learning how to step into my feminine energy more and be a little bit more present in my life. Learning how to slow down is a big part of that <3

Oh.. and I HAD to share this with you all. Today I took my baby puppy named Animal on a walk  through the neighborhood. It was her first time walking around this area. She made friends with four dogs AND a horse! She’s never seen a horse before. When we got back to the house I had to literally drag her up the driveway. She was really sad she couldn’t play with her new friends and spent the morning crying! — I thought this was the cutest thing ever.

Happy weekend everyone! I am going to be spending the rest of the day getting into flow, celebrating and enjoying all that this beautiful life has to offer.
