Seeking external validation and facing analysis paralysis when it comes to what you should be doing to succeed, prosper, be loved, and thrive is a symptom of losing touch with your inner authority.
A greater level of self-trust and trust in life will reveal the steps of your life path towards fulfillment of your soul purpose.
Each step you take initiates greater transformation, which is a way of greater becoming, of becoming more of who you truly are. As you become more of who you truly are, you gain greater clarity, awareness of your own wholeness, and reveal your strengths, talents, and abilities naturally.
This is what I am here to help you with in the Create the Life You Love course, based on a 6-week workshop series I hosted to teach and train people to reconnect with their inner guidance and gently move through the resistance that stands in the way.
This unique self-directed course combines spiritual strategy and neuroplasticity stimulating techniques and spiritual practices to create change from within that has effects reaching into all aspects of personal, relational, and professional life.
Change and transformation are a natural part of life, your biology and psyche, the world all around you.
Each day you wake up to is a new one. Each moment is new. The seasons, weather, and temperature changes. Your awareness and perception changes. The key to creating the life you love is to infuse the newness of every day and moment of your life with your intention and authentic empowerment. That easy.
But not so easy when you encounter resistance and triggers, without understanding how to navigate and shift them.
This is natural and very common. Many experiences of our lives teach us and condition our nervous systems to fear change by encountering negative consequences of change when we are not yet aware of our own power to face these experiences with compassion, integrity, self-awareness, and awareness of how loved and supported by this Universe we truly are.
The healing begins with you, with deepening into trust and surrender, and learning that surrender is the midwife of transformation that will unlock the door to least resistance for you. You cannot surrender without trust. Healing whatever impedes your ability to trust matters of the heart, the intelligence of the heart, receiving, being sensitive and vulnerable, and open to life will open up the greatest love, prosperity, and power.
From A Course in Miracles:
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all of the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. It is not necessary to seek for what is true, but it is necessary to seek for what is false. Every illusion is one of fear, whatever form it takes. And the attempt to escape from one illusion into another must fail. If you seek love outside yourself you can be certain that you perceive hatred within, and are afraid of it. Yet peace will never come from the illusion of love, but only from its reality.”
“The universe of learning will open up before you in all its gracious simplicity.”
Putting in more effort is only going to produce more of the same. If you have been doing the same thing, getting the same dissatisfying results, it is time to do things differently.
I would love to teach you how you can manifest:
✵ Optimal wellbeing & levels of energy
✵ Work that is in alignment with your natural gifts, talents, and abilities and done in a pace that works for you
✵ Loving, fulfilling and harmonious relationships
✵ A steady, abundant flow of money
✵ Identifying the thoughts and patterns of your emotional history to free the flow of energy to empower your life
✵ Aligning with and saying yes to your life’s true purpose
You can have all of this. I can teach you how.
But first — I will teach you this. Get ready to take some notes 📝. Even landing on this page and reading my words is going to change things for you!
The question is not “How can I manifest _________?” it is how can my energy become magnetic to attract all that the resources and support to become the highest, truest version of myself?
This leads to more questions…
How can I open myself up to life and this Universe?
How can I open up every cell in my body to receive?
How can I become more receptive?
How can I trust that I will always be supported?
THIS is the point. These four questions are the key to not just trying everything possible to make it happen, but to attract, align, and harmonize your own energy to receive all that is meant to support your thriving.
Be Self-led, heart-led, soul-led.

Though you may be admiring the view from how far you have come, you may be questioning, “Is there a point where this gets easier than this?”
You’ve spent your whole life and thousands of dollars to get to a point where you feel like, this is it, you can rest your laurels and leave the battlefield behind. You’ve read the books, repeated all the affirmations, attended seminars and retreats, and gotten so far already. You want so badly to feel settled and for all your hard work to pay off with your hard earned peace as the reward.
Maybe it’s not about needing more and more information, maybe it’s about that sweet click of integration where the parts and pieces of you finally come together, feeling parts of yourself that you have been disconnected from for far too long and no one has ever shown you how.
No matter how big the mountains you have scaled or moved, how much you have consumed or how put together it all looks, there still seems to be a gnawing feeling of not-quite-there-ness, note-quite-together-ness, not-quite-home, uncertainty and anxiety running in the background of your mind, body, and nervous system; especially when you try to relax.
You feel a sense restlessness and unease that you can't quite put your finger on. You have had such great opportunities, you have come so far... You know you are meant for more. For a life rich with meaning, passion, and purpose. And you have it! Now more than ever! So, why the unease?
You didn’t come this far to only come this far and you can't deny feeling a bit tired. And it feels hard to relax and soak it all up when there is still lingering uncertainty looming large despite your successes. It is hard to surrender when you have prided yourself on your ability to overcome. You have always been able to figure it out, take it on, yet this approach is now outmoded and no longer serving your highest good. All of this stress and suffering is burning up all the fuel for your unlived dreams, untapped potential and truest desires.
This is a wonderful position to be in, though it may not feel like it. It is a place of transition, unburdening, becoming more authentic, and of creative potential awakening and stretching across the canvas to be ready for a masterpiece to be painted on.
When you have the same response to life on repeat, it's like a preferred crayon color, a preferred technique that you have learned and relied on for so long that it is ingrained in you. When I was a kid, I would prefer some colors and use them to stubs while leaving others barely touched. Sometimes, we learn something and it satisfies our need to make something make sense and work, and then we keep perfecting it again and again, long past the time it has served its usefulness for us. When a way of being, doing, thinking, and living has outlived its usefulness for us, we can sense that we have outgrown and outworn it and feel it as a feeling of discontent that we can't quite put our finger on.
You aren’t too much. You aren't asking or wanting for too much. It is not that you have failed to do enough or that you could have made different choices.
You are not failing to be positive or grateful enough. You aren’t asking for too much, feeling too much, and your desires are not too big. You are not being too big for your britches. It is not a ridiculous pie in the sky pipe dream to ask for it all to be made much, much easier for you to have it all and enjoy it too. It is indeed possible. You can do it. You do have what it takes. But to turn all this struggle into a flow of richly rewarding possibilities, you need the right help because if you could have done it on your own, you would have. You are right there at the finish line on this stage of growth and expansion, you just need a little help the rest of the way to support you through this transition.
There aren't many self-help and personal development resources where the unwelcome is welcome, where resistance is accepted and befriended, where failures reveal strengths, and your struggle is not a problem to be solved but an experience to be embraced and integrated. My mission is to change and challenge that, to make it clear that your discontent, your un-resolved-ness, the way you are, life, is not a problem to be solved or fixed, and to show you the bigger picture of your true potential.
“A struggle for existence inevitably follows from the high rate at which all organic beings tend to increase. Every being, which during its natural lifetime produces several eggs or seeds, must suffer destruction during some period of its life and during some season or occasional year, otherwise on the principle of geometrical increase, its numbers would quickly become so inordinately great that no country could support the product. Hence, as more individuals are produced than can possibly survive, there must in every case be a struggle for existence, either one individual with another of the same species, or with the individuals of distinct species, or with the physical conditions of life.”
Charles Darwin, On Natural Selection
We have the power to transcend our psychobiology by plugging it into our higher consciousness and creativity.
Think of all the ways you could enjoy more time with loved ones, becoming so much more loving and patient because you are so much more trusting and open to life, more prosperous because you are so much more trusting and open to receiving, so much more successful because you are so much more trusting of and open to yourself, your capabilities, your talents and gifts, your personal power! This is our power to change everything:
“We are then, creatures like no others, with extraordinary flexibility of behavior, powers of imagination, and above all, conscious self-awareness. That self-awareness has enabled us, alone among living things, to stand above the imperatives of survival and reproduction and seek to understand how we came to be."
