SOOOO excited to spend this special weekend together with all of the incredible humans that have signed up! (Traveling from all over Florida and out of state to be together!!) <3
Aaaaand: >>>There is 1 spot left! Maybe for YOU?<<< If you are feeling called to go inward and connect with your deepest truth -- join us!! So that you can outwardly BE the fullest expression of your true self!! (Where all the magic unfolds. Where you get to be the creator of your own reality. Where it feels expansive & liberating & free!) 3 days in this AMAZING oceanfront home doing the deep work (while having a lot of fun too). :) There will be yoga, meditation, crystal healing bowls, journaling, sacred circle time & transformation.

It's an honor to co-lead with @anthonyprofetameditation who is a dear friend & whose soul-centered business I've watched TAKE OFF over the past couple of years -- now selling out all of his classes & events across the country! (All by following his own inner-guidance & living the principles we'll be guiding you through over the weekend)

The last retreat was dubbed "one of the best weekends of my life" by one attendee. It's a PURE JOY and HONOR to lead these. Each event is different, but magic ALWAYS unfolds. ❤️❤️
If you're feeling called, PM with questions!! The soul always knows. ;-) It would be an honor to have you join us.

I’ve asked a thousand times: WHY? Why on earth would anyone find ME disturbing? Intimidating? Whaaat? I am kind to everyone I meet. Always a smile. Always willing to help. I’m pretty laid back. I’m fun. Funny. (I mean, I think I’m hilarious, anyway). ;-)~ Buuuuut, I can also see directly into your soul and past all of your bullshit. And, I will call you out on it, with love. I don’t really filter myself, anymore. I share the darkest and the lightest parts of my own journey with the world, unapologetically. I walk through fire & come out more alive. I’m no longer afraid of my power. Or my truth. THE truth.

Ahh, yes. That bit. It can all be a tad “much” for some, eh?
But, over the past couple months, as I’ve been stepping into my new reality that I’ve created here on the beach and really doing the DEEP work, sitting with the question: What am I stepping into? What is the next level of my soul work on this planet? What’s up with all these crazy lessons that keep showing up?? One of the biggest realizations that has come through: >> I’m not here for you to like me. << Oh. Wow.

But, yes. It’s true. Not playing that role anymore. #done

I mean, at times you will absolutely LOVE me, as I love you. Of course!

And, then I will also show you the darkest parts of you that need love and healing and you might want to run. And that’s fine. Perfect, even. Because it will take you to your truth & then you’ll come back when you’re ready.

I spent most of my life pretending to be a little “less” than I am -- keeping parts of myself hidden: --The deeply intelligent part that felt awkward being the smartest one in the room (so I’d giggle and laugh and pretend I wasn’t) --The clairvoyant part that has always known things that really shouldn’t ‘logically’ be known (but that’s super-wierd so I’ve never really talked about it - except with a select few who get it) (Continued in comments..)

Sigh.

Truth-speaking aint for the faint of heart, friends.

Speak truth, anyway. 🙂

Being who you are is not always easy in a world that wants you to fit inside their mold.

Be YOU, anyway.

I know that I do things a little differently.

I speak very openly and honestly about what I’m working through. I don’t just talk about my wild successes, but also about some of the darker moments on the way. I don’t just tell stories of being healed, but share in the process of heal~ing. Super-vulnerable. Not for everyone.

I don’t pretend like I have all my shit together. (Just look at my FB story from yesterday on how I put furniture together for a real life example of this. Hahaha. I’m sure there’s a brilliant metaphor in there somewhere). I don’t just talk about the “pretty” stuff or the stuff that will impress you, like building a 7-figure business. I also tell you how I bankrupt my first business and had to start back from ground zero … (and how grateful I am that happened to me). Some people are really drawn to this. Others are really put off by this. It all depends on the lens you view life through. And, some, think it’s an open invitation to start dolling out judgements and advice on how you should live your life. It all comes with the territory, I suppose.

I’ve given up on people-pleasing and trying to make everybody happy or fitting myself into a box. And, in doing, so I’ve pissed a few people off along the way. Whoops.

The old version of myself would take it super-personal & start questioning everything: Maybe I should tone it down a bit? Maybe I should bite my tongue? Do I need to be SO honest? Do I need to share so much? I’ve DEFINITELY gone too far this time.

Now, I use it as a sign that I’m doing it RIGHT. And, I teach my clients the same thing. 🙂 (Cont in comments..) 📷 @liveloud.co

So, this strange thing has been happening since I separated and started speaking about it, publicly, these past couple months.

I mean, I guess it’s not THAT strange. Humans are always looking for someone that “gets” them -- a safe space to confide in -- to be understood.

I guess it would be more accurate to admit that, perhaps, I have been feeling a little strange about it all, though.

Since speaking my truth, I’ve had so many women reaching out to me with some variation of … “I could have written that” or “I’m going through the exact same thing right now” or “You’re so brave -- I WISH I could do that” or “I’m GOING to do that.” (Like CRAZY numbers, you guys. In. Droves. In droooooves.) They are looking for advice. Support. Encouragement. Just someone to share with and to be understood.

And, of course, it’s in my nature. To listen. To understand. To hold space for healing.

So, I’m down with it.
BUT…. There’s also a part of me that is like, “Wait, what? No. Hold up. This is SO not to become my “THING”” To be crystal clear: My message is not and never has been to leave your husband!!! 😬🙈 I’m not trying to have THAT on my conscience.

My message IS and always has been, however: Find your TRUTH. Live in ALIGNMENT. Stop watering yourself down & putting yourself in a box to make other people happy. Stop worrying so damn much about what other people think and what their judgements are going to sound like. Eff alllll of that. It’s YOUR life. Live it like you mean it!!! And, gulp, here’s the harsh reality check:
Sometimes that DOES mean leaving a relationship.

OR, a soul-sucking job.

OR, friendships that no longer supports you and your growth.

And sometimes it means saying things that people aren’t going to like to hear. And that they will undoubtedly have opinions (AF) about.

But, because of how people have been showing up in my world lately, and because humor is my go-to, I made a joke that, at this rate, I’m going to start getting known as the one you want to hide your wife from when you see me coming down the street. 🙈😂 #hideyowife #funnynotfunny (Continued in comments)

I’m baaaaaaaack!! I took a little hiatus from social media and doing ALL-the-things so that I could go deep into self-care and self-exploration these past few weeks.

Stepping into a new reality leaves one with a few minor questions. Like, “Ummm, who am I?” “What am I doing here?” and “What am I creating next?” 🤔
During this “closed for spiritual maintenance” period, I’ve been called to a lot of stillness & lessons & healing.
It’s looked like walking on the beach, and playing in the ocean, and SO much writing, and spending time alone, and BE-ing with my sweet girls -- as well as meeting new people, and trying new things.
Laughter & tears. Breakdowns & breakthroughs. Lots of meditating, and yoga, and dancing, and sunrises & sunsets & playing (badly) my guitar & surfing (finally!) & allowing the ocean speak to me.

Ahhh. I am now grounded and clear AF! 🙌🏼 Not to mention tan & fit - lol. 😉 (Not pictured. This photo was a few weeks ago)

The answers have been pouring in. Whoooosh!
So much coming through. So much to create. A new portal has opened. I’m freaking excited.

That being said, I owe many of you answers on things. 😉 If you have messaged me about something & I have not gotten back yet -- I am so sorry!! THANK YOU for your patience and understanding.
As I come out of my cocoon, I’m going to attempt to get through all of my FB messages over the next few days. For anything urgent, feel free to text or email (always best). OR, PLEASE write me again so you are on top of the pile. It’s not a bother at all.
Exciting things are being birthed - yay!! Can’t wait to share with you.

What a fucking journey. It’s a beautiful life. I love you!! 🙏❤️

Answering the call sometimes looks like spending hours a day walking the beach. 🤷‍♀️ Even when your logical mind is saying “you should probably be doing more actual WORK right now” & reminds you of launches/promos and new programs to be created. Messages to return. Calls to schedule. And, not to mention, more unpacking, and hanging, and putting furniture together.

I HAVE, of course, been working too. 🙂 Many beautiful clients showing up to do the deep work. Many new opportunities presenting themselves. Getting settled in nicely at the mermaid pad. The future is bright. 😎

But, when I check in with that infinite wise voice within, she says: Walk. Go to the ocean. NOW. That’s why we brought you here. Everything else can wait. In fact, it will wait. Everything in perfect timing, as usual. THIS is what you need right now. 🔥 Slow down first to quantum leap. 🔥
So, my last few days (few weeks) -- in between packing/unpacking and keeping everything else afloat (the best I can) -- have also looked like miles and miles of sand and salt and quiet reflection. Chasing sunrises and sunsets. Swimming with dolphins. Bearing witness to the exact moment when a baby sea turtle found its way into the sea. Smiling at strangers passing by. Noticing they are also in deep thought and wondering what the sea is speaking to them.
I’m aware of a massive clearing and releasing happening to the soundtrack of waves crashing & birds singing within the frame of infinite beauty that still takes my breath away. It’s never “just another” sunrise. Or “just” the ocean again. The beauty and spirit of “she” (mama Gaia) is never lost on me.
With every step, lessons are being shown. Another layer shed. I’m being brought to a deeper healing, a deeper knowing. Being lead to “what’s next.” Ever since announcing my separation and sharing the struggles and the bliss that has come with this major transition, my inbox has been overflowing. People are resonating and looking for answers and support. I’m sitting with, “Oh. Am I supposed to be doing THIS?” feeling called to rise, somehow, but still working through the how.

One wouldn’t need to look too hard to find evidence to support said theories.

In the last month, I’ve gone on a 28 day fast with no food. I sold my house. Got rid of more-than-half my stuff. Moved to a condo on the beach. And, ended a two decade relationship.
In the process, I’ve experienced every emotion known to man. Very deeply.

People have had concerns. Even a few harsh judgements, and un-friendings (both online & off) -- from strangers and people I thought were friends alike, who are viewing from the limited scope of their own life.

Just last night, I was wiping tears from my 10 year-old daughter’s eyes on the beach. In the midst of experiencing the most epic sunset, she let it all out, sensitive soul that she is. Everything she’s been holding in & feeling in the midst of the rapid change in her young life.

We breathed together and I loved on her, helping her to move through it all.

In the process, I took on her pain as my own & felt, in that brief moment, like the worst mom on the planet -- knowing that I am she who put the cause of said hurt into motion.

And, as much as I wish I could say it was a mutual decision in this uncoupling, it really wasn’t. The choice has been on me, casting me as the heartbreaker in this narrative (because you only get to choose the role in your own life -- not how you occur for others). Faaaaaaawk, those are hard pills to swallow.

But, despite all of that... Every time I drop in -- out of my head and into my heart -- when I just let go and feel into the all-knowing essence of my soul -- that familiar feeling of calm, and comfort, and clarity takes over.

The message is the always same. “You are on the right path.”
“This is for the highest & best good of all.”
“It’s hard now, yes. But, keep going.”
“Trust”

Following your heart, coming into alignment, leaning into your purpose -- not easy work.

I avoided taking action for longer-than-I-care to admit because I knew it wasn’t going to be easy.

It’s still not easy. Every day, I do the work, though. [Cont in comments...]

First sunrise from my home beach. 😍
I woke up this morning, took 3 steps from my bed to my balcony, and snapped this pic (after taking in & breathing in the beauty, of course — which, by the way, will never get lost on me - no matter how many times I wake up like this — because no two sunrises are ever the same & no frozen moments-in-time like this are ever a waste). I’m sharing this to remind you how powerful you are. You get to create your reality. Yes, YOU!

Those little gentle tugs on your heart, those whispers in your ear — that’s your soul speaking. Guiding you to where you’re meant to be, to claim what was always meant to be yours.
Many hear the call. But, most decide it’s too difficult. Too crazy. That we’re not meant to have it ALL. Like a “good enough” life is good enough. And, there’s some cap on the amount of joy, freedom, bliss, Love, and happiness we’re allowed to receive in one lifetime.
Or, we think: that kind of expansive living is meant for somebody else — only a select few. (When, really, it’s ALWAYS been meant for you). So, we settle. And, in doing this, we tell the Universe that this is all we’re able to receive. So, of course, we just get more of the same. We stay stuck. Secretly longing for something more.

The truth is: I always knew I would end up here. Maybe not the exact spot - but the feeling of “here.” There were many times when I thought it was beyond my reach, though — when I wasn’t willing to do the hard things, when I didn’t FULLY believe I was worthy to receive.

I got here by letting go of those old patterns & beliefs, by tuning in & following the guidance of my soul, by remembering who I AM, and taking actions to step into that version of myself everyday. (I’m still stepping, by the way. This was just a big first step — with an incredible view. 😍) If this is speaking to your soul — let’s play! By the ocean in a GORGEOUS home at the Soul Connection retreat - September in Jupiter, FL.
Only if you are ready to answer the call & claim what is your. 😊
Get into your heart, love. Get out of your mind. You just have to decide. 🙏❤️

Putting life-altering plans into motion. Announcing them to the world.
Riding the waves of emotions: Highest highs and lowest lows.
All under the full moon, which has made everything that much more intense. (Unintentionally, but surely not “accidentally” -- I don’t believe in those). It has certainly all been serving.
Feeling so loved and grateful for the outpouring of support. Fully receiving it all. (For a change. #giverproblems). But, this is my new M.O.

Marveling at what shows up when you are clear on what you want and then actually ASK for it. (Meaning, not one single word of judgement or unsolicited advice came my way -- after I politely stated I wasn’t looking for that and made myself energetically unavailable for it. More evidence: We ARE the creators of our reality.) How the seemingly smallest gestures -- like awesome humans that you care about messaging just to say, “thinking about you” “hope you have a great day” or “I’m here for you if you need to talk” -- have the biggest impact. Noting to myself, also, how I may be that one for someone else, more often.

And then the part that brought me to tears. So many tears…. The inbox full of private messages. Overflowing. A lot of people are suffering alone. “I could have written that…”
“You spoke my heart so eloquently…”
“Your share had me in tears…” Opening up and sharing their deepest & darkest: “Only one other person knows about this…” or
“I haven’t told anybody else this, but…” A lot of parallel realities out there.
Making me want to dive deeper into why we hide our humanity. Why are we so afraid that someone else might see our “mess?” Trying so hard to keep up the appearances. It’s exhausting just to think about.

So many commenting on my “bravery” and “courage.” But, I don’t feel that way at all. In fact, it’s simply natural. It’s actually very painful for me NOT to be open. So, I mostly feel relieved right now. And fully alive. ✨

We all deserve to feel this way.

I’ve always been that person that holds space. Strangers on elevators and in grocery stores share their most intimate details with me .. (Cont in comments)

Wow. It feels so weird announcing this on social media.

And, a little scary. I’m not going to lie.

I’ve been stalling on sharing this for days. Months. Years, really. My heart is beating out of its chest.
But, it is time. And, these are the times we live in.
Many have already known. Or, have been asking.

And, honestly: What has felt even stranger (and scarier) has been NOT talking about it.

My core values (and message to the world) are about being open, transparent, vulnerable.

But, I have not been living this way in one area of my life.
With good reason. Or, so I’ve been telling myself... I’ve been considering the feelings of others over living my truth.
But, I can do this no longer.

I’m not sure how many times I’ve shared about “the #1 deathbed regret,” which is, in the last moments of life, when the veil is very thin, and the truth is very clear, and asked if there are any regrets, the most common response is:, “I wish I had lived a life true to myself, instead of the one that others had wished for me.” But, then, it’s too late.
After sharing this dozens of times (on stages, interviews, blogs), I had a stark realization that I’d been talking to myself, as much as anyone else.

The irony and paradox are not lost here. But, OF COURSE, it would happen this way. It couldn’t have been scripted any better.

What we are here to teach is also what we are here to learn. Or, sometimes, forced to experience and embody at incredible (and often painful) depths we did not know were possible. (All good signs that you’re on the right path.) *DEEP BREATHE* (again)

So….. I’ll just quit stalling & come out with it.... [Click on my personal Facebook page to read the rest. Link in profile] 🙏❤️ #vulnerableAF #newbeginnings

Our divine purpose is to be the FULLEST expression of our true selves.

We are powerful beyond measure. Reality creators. Divine children of God.

Yet…. Most of us live out our lives expressing just a small fraction of our true potential. (Like, maybe 10%). Why?

Because we have deep (subconscious) beliefs running the show -- based on our life experiences, what we've learned, and even on some things that have been passed down from previous generations in our DNA.

On top of that – We live BUSY lives – constantly on the GO – moving at warp speed – not slowing down to just BE.

As a result, we lose our connection to source — our divine truth. We feel anxious. Lost. Overworked. Confused.

As a conscious leader, business owner, messenger, or author — it can be a struggle to get your message out to the world in a way that meaningfully lands with their soul ... ... until you’ve experienced deeply reconnecting with YOURS!

It's time, dear. The world needs you! * Time to step unapologetically into your full power. * To express yourself fully (and say those things you've always wanted to say) * To magnetically call in your soul-clients * Own your story and/or write your book * Make a bigger impact * Live your legacy NOW.

Smelling foods I would NEVER eat in a million years, and saying "Omg, that smells amaaaaazing." (We're talking fried chicken, here, folks, and I've been a vegetarian since I was 16). 🤷‍♀️😂 Already have my grocery list written and meals planned out for the next two weeks. 🤣
Mostly fruits & green juice to start. Then adding in raw veggies/salads, and then a little bit of fats (like hummus, some seeds/nuts) & some lightly cooked veggies.

So ready to break this fast on Saturday! (Watermelon + then Açaí bowl, here I come! There are def some spiralized zucchinis in my future too.) OMG! 😋🙌🏼 Sidenote: But, I made it!! (almost) And feeling soooo good: grounded, clear, connected, strong!!! 🤸‍♂️💃💪🏼🍇😊 #fastinglife

It was a blessing to be initiated into the Medicine Buddha healing practice this past weekend with these beautiful humans! 🙏🤗 So perfectly timed as I wrap up my extended (28 day!) fast. We are all natural-born healers, and as we purify our minds and bodies, our healing capabilities become more potent and clear. ❤️ We took a vow to dedicate our practice to the benefit of all beings. So, I'm feeling called to say: If you need support with something, feel free to reach out. I'd be happy to send you a little distance healing. (It's also good practice for me, so please do reach out!!) Big thanks to @anthonyprofetameditation who brought this healing modality back to us from India after being initiated by Lama Zopa, the "heart son" of the 14th Dalai Lama. ❤️ This healing comes from an unbroken lineage that carries the blessings of the Buddha and all the saints & sages from whom the lineage was received. 🙏 💫💕In other BIG (and related) news: 💕💫 Anthony & I are co-hosting an incredible 3-Day "Soul Connection" retreat this September at a GORGEOUS luxury home on the ocean AND river in Stuart, FL. (You have to see this place!) Attendees from the last retreat said, "One of the best weekends of my life." and "Anything is possible now. I'm ready to play full out like never before"

Writing. Yoga. Sound Baths. Healing. Meditation. Sacred Circle Time. Play. Connection. Bliss.
Space is limited. Details & pictures are at link in profile. Message me or Anthony if you have questions!! Would SO love to support you in your journey to reconnect with your divine truth & become fully expressed, as that is our soul’s deepest calling.

When you wake up to a stranger on the internet advising you to “get help” for “starving” yourself.

Oh boy.

Thanks, love, but no "help" needed! Truly. 🙏 ❤️ I’m (safely) fasting right now and, ironically, feel so good & connected to my truth that I have no intention of letting those words in or taking them personally. :) I’m not out to convince anybody or prove anything. I have nothing to gain from this except, perhaps, to inspire some other lovely beings along their own path.
I’m simply sharing my own journey and experience. If it resonates with you -- wonderful!! I encourage you to go on your own journey to discover for yourself. (And, if you have questions, I’m happy to share experience and resources with you). If it doesn’t resonate - no worries! I knew when I decided to share my 28 days of fasting journey that I would probably get some backlash. Not everybody is ready for this. I was a sceptic myself. I don’t blame you.
But, if you find yourself sitting with judgement and scepticism, I would ask you to consider this: - Why is dis~ease running so rampant? (cancer, obesity, heart disease, autism, food allergies - at rates never seen before)
- Why are 70% of Americans on at least one prescription drug?
- Why is it that science can easily “prove” two opposing theories? - And, why do the results tend to favor whoever funded the study?
- Why, as a collective, are we more depressed than ever?

Do you think it has anything to do with what we are fueling our bodies with? That we're blindly following?

Do you think we’re really being fed the truth?
I will give you a hint:
There’s a fortune in misinformation and dis~ease. (Follow the money.) If you are ready to find out the truth, you can consider that maybe, just maybe, everything you think you know about nutrition is possibly inaccurate. I know, I know. My ego didn’t like it either. Who wants to be wrong?

Our bodies are walking miracles. It’s all really quite simple, actually. Anything’s possible in a clean body.
You can stay asleep & believe what you’ve been fed or you can wake up & start asking questions. You can look for evidence or join the wave of those who are becoming it. ✌🏻❤️

10 days in (so far) … and it’s been a ride!! The Good:

Since I’m fasting, I’m finding myself in bed earlier & up at the crack of dawn. This is lovely because the quiet hours in the first of the morning are truly magical. If you get really still and listen, you can hear the secrets of the Universe being whispered while the sun starts peeking over the horizon. 🤗(On a normal day, I sleep through & miss out on these precious moments). I am doing daily dry fasts from 7pm-10am, which means no liquids at all during that period (and no food, obviously, for the full 28 days). Normally, I would want to make a cup of tea when I wake up. And, later, some juice or fruit for breakfast.
Now, without the prepping and the drinking, and the eating, and the clean-up -- I’m finding there’s A LOT more time on my hands.

And, so, I have been called to create new rituals. 🙂

This means -- all before 8am -- rolling out of bed and then rolling out my yoga mat for a long practice where I get to breathe deeply, create space in my body, and connect with source. I still have time for a long meditation and some journalizing, afterwards - feeling super high-vibe to start the day. 🙌🏼 Loving this. ❤️ But, it hasn’t all been bliss…. The Bad:

After feeling so good, yesterday was my first rough day (since day 2). I woke up feeling exhausted and couldn’t shake it for the entire day. I tried oils, and baths, and movement, and music, and journaling -- just couldn’t shake the low energy. So, I finally surrendered. I trust that my body knows what it is doing. No doubt, some deep healing work went down.

I remember how exhausting it was when I was pregnant and creating tiny humans in my body. It felt kind of like that.
When you fast, your body goes to work to heal your glands and organs and anything else that needs repairing. It removes all the toxins and gunk that has accumulated deep in your tissues over the years. While dry-fasting, your healthy cells become little self-cannibals and seek out and eat the weak, diseased, and unhealthy cells in your body (It’s called autophagy). Pretty cool, right? All of this can take a toll, though. (Cont in comments

My hunger is gone (except when I smell some really yummy food - I have a momentary sense of ohhh, I want that in my belly!). My energy levels have been strong and steady.

I did catch myself thinking, the worst is probably yet to come (as I am committed to 28 days) ... But, then, I immediately thought, "what a crappy, limiting thought that is." Ha! Why would I want to call THAT in? And, where else in my life is the "this is as good as it gets" program running in the background?

So, I immediately retracted & instead decided that this entire fast gets to be so easy! Each day gets to be even better than the one before. 🙂 And, now I am looking at where else I get to apply this belief in my life. 😊

I feel clear. I feel powerful. I am discovering a new level of trust and adoration for my body.

And, anything that does come up, I understand that it is coming to the surface to be healed or to act as a mirror to reflect a blind spot that gets to be resolved to allow for flying even higher.
We are all so much stronger and more capable and magical than we know. 🙌🏼 Fasting is a beautiful way to shed the illusions and tap into this Universal power. (And, if anybody wants to join, you can still jump with us!) Thank you for reading & sharing in the journey with me. 🙏

So much love! 🤗❤️ Ps: No make-up, no filter. Okay, yes, eyes & lips. But skin is all-natural & I’ve had problem skin my whole life. The fast glow is real! 🙌🏼💕)

(Some of you have been curious & asking how it's going, so I’ll try to share a little of the journey here) 🤗

Yesterday was a kinda rough, to be honest. I had to feel EVERYthing & became acutely aware of how we use food to desensitize. My energy was low, I had a headache &, at some points, a bellyache.
It rained most of the day & I couldn't get outside. I wanted to hide out under the covers.
But, by the evening, the rain had cleared, and I made my way out to a beautiful Qi Gong circle on the beach (lead by one of my favorite humans, Dr Nadia!!). We had a healing circle, afterwards, where we all called in support for whatever we currently need & desire.
I called in an easy & healing fast, & also strong roots and grounding as a lot is shifting in my world right now and it can feel unstable at times.

It was lovely to be in the energy of such beautiful people, listening to the waves crashing, & breathing in the salt air. I felt energized when I left. 🙂

And, today, I woke up feeling really good!

l am learning, however, that we are creatures of habit. I was missing my morning green tea latte and dandelion coffee with coconut milk, something fierce, as I sat down to work. The comfort of the warm liquid & the ritual of it all is missing.
However, my re-frame is that I get to create new rituals for the next month. Music + mantra + essential oils are what I'm now starting my day with.

Straight out of bed, I went into my morning meditation. I felt like I dropped in really deep & really fast. Interesting to observe that our bodies vibrate at a higher frequency without the density of food & the energy of digestion weighing down. I felt super-light & happy and it has lingered throughout the day!

I have a full day (week, month, life!) scheduled. Instead of thinking of it like that, however, I'm just focusing on task by task & managing my energy the best I can.
I've been taking some breaks for yoga & walking and will take a nice salt bath this evening. 🙂 And, sipping on my grape juice & lemon, which is not easy, by the way (1.5 liters a day). Waaah!
I'm focusing on the bigger picture & everything that is possible through this!

What happens when you go without food for 28 days?

I don’t know yet, but I will tell you in about a month. 😉

Today, I woke with thoughts of “am I a crazy person?” and “what have I gotten myself into?” (Still waiting on the answers. haha)

But, I’ve committed. To fasting for 28 days. Alongside 30+ other lovely humans, scattered all across the planet.
Why? Because it’s the pathway to deep healing on so many levels. Releasing toxins and obstructions. Generating new, healthy cells. Letting go of emotional baggage. Testing and strengthening our will and our limits. Experimenting with our bodies and developing a new awareness around how they actually work. Raising our consciousness and becoming closer to source…

The truth is: A lot of what we’ve been taught and think we know about nutrition is completely wrong.

You don’t need to look too far to find evidence of this: Look at all the sick people. Obesity. Chronic illness. Disease running rampant.

Look at the gross misinformation out there (like how the “food pyramid” from our own government, tell us we should eat mostly grains & lots of dairy. We actually need very little grains, if any at all. They leave behind a lot of disease-causing obstruction in our bodies. And, dairy, is one of the most inflammatory foods/drinks we could have). Why so much bad info out there?
Just follow the money…. 💁🏼‍♀️ I’ve fasted many times, previously, with powerful shifts (only 3-4 days, max, however). So, this is clearly next-level. Nothing but juice and herbs for the next month. 😯

I’m a full day in and just taking it moment by moment. (Kind of like running a marathon. If you’re focused on the finish line from the first step, it’s going to be a loooong painful run. But, if you just focus on taking one step and the next and the next --- while, also, trying to enjoy some of the beautiful scenery along the way -- it’s a much more pleasant experience). For now, my job is to just let whatever comes up, come up. To be with the unpleasantries … and, then allow it to shift. To remember why I committed to this ... and what is possible on the other side.

And to fall madly in love with grape juice. 🍇😍😂

Yes, you.
You know.
In fact, you’ve known all along.

The doubting. The distractions. The “I’m not ready yet.” The “let me just take one more course, read one more book, try on one more cookie-cutter strategy, let it play out in my mind -- just one more time (on repeat) … before I make the leap.” But you never. Leap.

Let’s be honest: It’s all BS, really.
But, you already knew that too. 🙂

The thing is: You are being called into greatness. Something much bigger and greater than you ever imagined.
Deep in your core you already know. You’ve always known.
It’s scary.. Of course it is! There is some strange safety net in place that keeps you status quo. Feeling safe -- just how your mind likes it.

So, alllll of your shizz comes up to the surface to play you out: “Am I worthy? Good enough? Smart enough? Strong enough? Who am I to make such a ripple?” You take yourself out of the game. You busy yourself with more distractions while lying to yourself and saying, “Not yet. Not yet. Soon. But, not yet.” Soon, you say? Oh really?
tick. tock.
Your soul knows the truth.
You’re being called to let go of all those stories you’ve made up about yourself. To let go of all those patterns and beliefs that have been holding you in place.
While they have been serving --- it is now time to let them go.
Let me share a little secret that might let you off the hook a little here.

It’s not really about YOU, after all!
I mean, it’s ALL about you - because you are the messenger, the leader, the creative, the body housing the soul.
But, you’re just the conduit, love. It’s actually SO much bigger than you. You’re doing it for them. For us. For humanity.
So, isn’t it about time you get out of your own way? Our way? Realize, when you don’t take that next step, it affects the whole.

You’re a piece of this puzzle. It’s part of the soul contract you signed long, long ago. Remember? 🙂

Everything you need is already inside of you.

So quit playing the “I don’t know” game. My love, you know. You’ve ALWAYS known. ❤️ It’s time to get into ACTION. (Continued in 1st comment..)

When you have a lovely meeting a block away from the beach, you (of course) must stop and pay homage to the ocean for a bit, afterwards. 🙂
Today, I sat in quiet contemplation and did a little people watching.
I saw a couple (with no kids in sight) building a sandcastle together, with sweet determination — tiny little shovels, buckets and all. 😊

I saw a grown man run full force into the sea, jumping over waves, and fall flat on his face in the process. (And then come up laughing ... which really made me laugh). 🤣

I saw tiny, adorable, humans play a game where they let the waves chase them with their onshore flow ... and then became the chasers with the outward ebb -- all while giggling incessantly. 🤗

This all went down to the soundtrack of crashing waves on repeat and birds singing in sweet harmony — while I soaked up the energy of the sun, and then swam in the refreshing sea. ☀️🌊 Ahhhhhh.
The simplest things are the greatest pleasures in life.
Always. 🙏 (Also, it's good to be a mermaid.) 🧜‍♀️😉 That is all. I LOVE YOU!! ❤

Celebrating these incredible humans and the magic that unfolded this past weekend!! 💫💕 The depth of love and gratitude I have been feeling since leading this retreat has been difficult to express, which is why I’ve sat with it for a couple of days.

But, I can say this…
On the way home on Sunday, I stopped at a coffee shop for a tea. As I walked back to my car, the sky opened up and it started POURING down. There was a group, in the parking lot, that started running towards the building to take cover. But, I continued to walk slowly, head tilted up towards the sky, feeling the rain on my skin, clothes and hair getting soaked, ridiculous smile on my face.
One of the men actually stopped in his tracks, looked at me, and said, “Wow, I want whatever you’re having.” I was sipping on a cup of being in love with life and living on purpose, of course. 😊 With a topping of showing up, fully, no matter what. [And, believe me, there were some “whats” thrown in the mix for me to contend with. haha!] In hindsight, I realize that I selfishly designed the “perfect” retreat that I would want to attend myself. (Luckily, we’re all connected & it turns out I wasn’t the only one) 😊

Staying on the ocean in a nice open house with the sounds of waves crashing as the background track. Sitting in a circle of beautiful, game-changing, big hearted, magical woman (and one lovely man 🤗). Yoga in the grass. The most beautiful sunrises with shades of pink that touch the soul. Hugs, and love, and laughter. Tears and breakthroughs and permission to BE. Crystal bowl sound healing. Deep conversations. Truth and wisdom. Delicious acai bowls & vegan meals!! Many kettles of delicious teas brewed. More hugs. And, more love.
And, writing. So much writing. Freedom of expression. Stepping into higher self. Feeling into the vibration of what it is to be all that one is here to be on this earth. No judgement. A safe space to express and be who you are. To be held (energetically, or physically, as needed) Walks on the beach with wide smiles for no apparent reason. And, dance parties (of course!) I mean, is it even legal to be this happy & content? (Continued in comments...)

For those of you who are feeling the big shifts in the Universe these past couple of weeks -- know that you are not alone. There is a transformation and up-leveling happening FOR you (even though it doesn't alway feels good in the moment). In the space of the unknown, some of the most beautiful magic is allowed to flourish. Gorgeous is the shape of new landscapes. Exquisite is the form of fresh experiences that mold us and help us to grow.
When we’re brave enough to take the leap, adventures abound as we’re pulled into beautiful new directions. We finally get to peel back the layers and expose our delightful authenticity, deeper within.

And, yet, our tricky mind would have us question everything .. including our sanity. (No, just me? 🤷‍♀️😂) There is a simple solution. (Be mindful however: “Simple” does not always equate to easy. We are deeply programmed to think it has to be hard.) In letting go of that false belief, SIMPLY:

Replace fear with love.
Fear is everything that can go wrong. Love is everything that can go right.
Fear is close-minded and expecting the worst. Love is open to all of the possibilities and never losing faith in the fact that we’re being guided to our highest good.
Fear chooses complacency and status quo. Love chooses to expand and grow into the infinite possibilities of ourselves and of the Universe.
Fear is judgemental and considers what we’re ‘supposed’ to do according to the rest of the world. Love goes within, calls on passion and purpose, and allows our own inner-guru to take the wheel.

Feel into the vibration of love infused into these words. You are so much stronger, wiser, and READY than you know.

I see you. I feel you. I LOVE you!!! 🙏❤️🙏❤️🙏❤️

Putting the final plans together for next week's Writing from the Soul workshop-retreat, feeling into what a privilege it is to lead such a sacred event & filled with excitement over the magic that shall unfold. :) Connecting with your soul. Unleashing your highest truth. And, expressing that divinity in a way that speaks right to the soul of those who need to hear your message most.
I mean, you either want that or you don't. No judgement either way. :) But, if that DOES speak to you - consider that you are here, on this planet, at this time, to be a messenger. Because, you are. (Deep down, you already knew that. But, perhaps, were waiting for a confirmation?) Yep, it's true. And ... your people are waiting.
2 days of divine flow. Stepping into your higher self. Giving yourself permission to BE and express who you really are. (And, having it land). Leaving with soulfully curated messages to share with the world. And, the tools to tap into this flow at any time.

All alongside a group of high-vibe visionaries. The ocean as your muse. Chakra crystal bowl alignment. Yoga. Meditations. And, of course, my deepest love and guidance along the way, holding this sacred space.
All that is missing is you. <3

Just one spot left. Somebody, reading this now, really needs this!! Maybe you? Message me if this is speaking to YOUR soul. :) xx

The Universe is always listening. For the last month, I have been going non-stop. I know better. And, usually, I do manage my energy better. I ebb and I flow.

For the last month, I have been going non-stop.
I know better.
And, usually, I do manage my energy better.
I ebb and I flow.
But, a series of events, and opportunities, and rapid changes, and activations has kept me in the flow state.

I must have said, at least a dozen times, in the last few weeks, "I really need an ebb day." I've been meaning to get around to it, really.

Yesterday, it all caught up with me. After a morning of calls, a 2 hour lunch meeting, my guitar lesson, picking up Delilah from school and going to the grocery store ... I felt myself fading. Fast.

By the time I walked through the front door of my house, I felt like I had been hit by a truck and couldn't possibly stand a moment longer.

I left the groceries on the floor, had the girls put them away, and made my way to the couch, where I slept for 14 hours.
This morning, I stayed in bed, re-scheduled the day's appointments, and slept some more.
I finally peeled myself up to take a long shower, which was heaven. Now, I'm back in bed, wrapped in a towel, wet, un-brushed hair, with my laptop, where I'll spend the rest of the day writing. Or maybe reading. Or maybe doing nothing at all. Because I can. I have nothing to do and nowhere to be.
And, strangely, I feel entirely human again. Like it was all just a dream.

The Universe delivered a friendly reminder to slow down, integrate, and allow my energy to rejuvenate.
This time, it was via that hit-by-a-mack-truck feeling.

Next time, there will be an ocean involved. And it will be lovely. Because I will do it right. As I know better. 🙂

I did a thing today. In between meetings and calls what would have been stories of "I'm too busy..." I took my dusty, out-of-tune guitar down off the wall & ventured off to my first lesson in yeeeeears. Same teacher I worked with over a decade ago. On the drive over, I had to Google the notes ... I did a thing today.

In between meetings and calls what would have been stories of "I'm too busy..." I took my dusty, out-of-tune guitar down off the wall & ventured off to my first lesson in yeeeeears. Same teacher I worked with over a decade ago.

On the drive over, I had to Google the notes on the strings to make sure I remembered them correctly. 🤷‍♀️😂 (I did!! 🙌🏼). In class, somehow my fingers magically knew what to do ... albeit a lot slower than they used to.
It felt good to make music again.
And, we all have that thing we’ve been putting off that we really want to do & it lights up our soul because .... busy. And: tomorrow. You know the one. But, what if tomorrow doesn’t come? It doesn’t always. Or, you blink your eye and ten years have gone by. Trust me. So, how about makin your tomorrow, today? 💕

You friendly PSA. 😉

BTW: Give me a few weeks & I'll play you a song! 🤗 Any requests?? ❤️

Despite the battered look, it didn’t hurt at all. .

After spending a week in high heels and dresses (instead of my preferred uniform of barefoot and yoga pants), 14 hours days turned “on” - personally connecting with nearly 100 incredible souls, up early & going to bed late, skipping out on my usual morning yoga routine, lugging a heavy bag around on my shoulder, and trekking 100 pounds of luggage up & down 3 flights of stairs (because there was NO elevator at the resort -- say whaaat?) -- my body was letting me know that it was SO not happy with my choices. I was in serious need of self-care!
I totally know better. And, I usually do better. But, sometimes, when opportunity is knocking, you answer & let you normal routines fall by the wayside. At least I did. Just for a short while.

Then it was time to drop back in to my self-love routines. This photo shows evidence of that -- my first cupping experience. As amazing as our bodies are, sometimes they need a little help. The cupping essentially acts as a vacuum that increases fresh blood flow to sore muscles as well as removing toxins -- this combined with some acupuncture moved a lot of stuck energy in my body and had me feeling whole again. 🙌🏼 Almost.
There were still a couple kinks to work out, so I waited a couple of days & then decided to book a therapeutic deep tissue massage.

Now, THAT actually hurt like hell!! On the table, I was sitting with the pain of this sweet woman digging deep into my muscles with the force of an elephant, and a beautiful metaphor popped into my head. (Because, you know, I pretty much think in metaphors). As I felt the pain of the deep pressure in my muscles, I knew I had a few choices.
I could have yelled at the practitioner, “what did I ever do to you?” (lol) or perhaps just asked her to ease up a bit. But, I didn’t. Because, I knew there was sweet relief on the other side.
I could have tensed up and held my breath and fought against her pressure -- a natural stress response in the body. But that could have caused me more pain, and would have lessened the potential healing. (Continued in comments...)

So grateful to be on this journey & for those who have gone deep with me. Bare Naked is raw & real & a reflection of what it means to be human. So much wisdom being shared each week. We are all walking each other home and there is so much we can learn from each other's stories.

The beautiful thing about awareness is this: You get to look at it ALL. Without judgement. And, learn. And, expand.
