This is where I turn the mic over to you.
I have been making good on the preparations talked about in the previous blog. If you followed the Instagram or daily FB posts, you must have noticed the 99 Reasons Why 2016 Rocked photo. I had a blast penning that down!
One of the best surprise reasons on there was, ' I had more people tell me I Love You.' Some of the best ones where 'I am physically the strongest I have ever been.'; 'I relaxed with money'; 'I found a publisher I love!'; 'My dad opened up to me like never before'...
I had quite a few about work, like the products I put together, the radio show, the keynote speaking gig, an invitation to lead someone else's group for a month on key practices... But my top ones were (not surprisingly) the others!
Now I am at a stage of the prep to start my intention creating for 2017. I have the 'Bones calendar', where I have a few fixed content offerings for you every month. (I'll have a photo posted soon!). I am also asking questions about how I would like to show up in the near future.
Coming back to the mic in your hands!
What is the request:
How do I tell you about it?
Whatever I send over, will it be kept anonymous?
Is there anything else that needs a call out?
Make sure you share this with as many people as you can. I'd love have more to this party!
As always, written with Love.
21st Dec, Wednesday: Winter Solstice for the Northern Hemisphere.
Winter Solstice is when the Earth's tilt is the farthest from the Sun. As a result, we experience the longest night and the shortest daylight.
Spiritually it is the rebirth of the Sun. Because from that day onwards, the Sun will be available to us for longer and longer periods of time (till we reach Summer Solstice and the cycle repeats).
Life in nature slowly but surely grows, rejuvenates and comes to full blossom (which is summer).
What does it have to do with us? Should I care?
We are a part of this cycle; we feel the pull and push of such changes. As we approach Winter Solstice, it is natural for masses to feel stress, confused or stagnant.
Spiritually, during this time, we are to take the time to connect and realign ourselves. How well we realign, how well we center ourselves will be the seed we plant for the upturn cycle that begins (for the northern hemisphere).
So tomorrow, when it is the darkest and the shortest day of the year, plan a ritual for yourself. This is not about rushing to take action; it's all about relaxing and getting into a good space in your head.
Winter Solstice is a spiritual dance from darkness to light. Won't you partake?
I'll be doing all of the above tomorrow.
And interestingly, tomorrow in the Life & Inner Transformations group, we will be detailing nine reasons why someone fails to progress in thier task or goal.
This is in relation to Yoga Sutras. But still, how cool is it that?! That the discussion of the topic fell on a solstice!
In my book very cool!
Here's wishing you a powerful, clear and intention fueled day tomorrow!
We are still LIVE with the 50% on any coaching offer! You might want to get IN on that!
Hello! Seekers, Pilgrims and all in all Fabulous People who ALWAYS read this blog!
YOU are the reason I AM. Thank you!
Let me begin by asking you, What's holding you back?. What's that one thought that you can't shake off? That one feeling about yourself you can't get out of your head?!
It's not big enough to paralyze you from doing your day to day but it's present enough to occupy significant portions of emotional space. You'll know which thought I am talking about because it's something you are very aware of and very familiar with...
INFACT! It may be something you've actively tried to change or control in yourself. You've probably read plenty written materials about it or listened to audio/podcasts that promised ground breaking tips to deal with it and FREE you from the burden or the nag you feel because of it...
That thought could even be the reason for the type of work you do OR the thing that drives most of your conversations OR it's what most, if not all, of your advice to others, is about.
And through it all, you are VERY aware that the very same thought has you running in cricles and is something you can't break free from!
You've been waiting a long time to find relief from it. You LONG for space where you are able to open up, put it out there and finally RELEASE yourself from the CONSTANT chatter in your head.
To make things worst, you know what letting go FEELS like because you've done it before with something else!
Oh! the sweet, sweet feeling of NOT feeling irritated, or guilty, or sad, or ashamed or insecure as a result.
So, here's my INVITATION to YOU.
Let's work this. Let's once and for all turn this UPSIDE DOWN! Let's create that space for you - to forgive, understand and let go - so that you can COME OUT of your own shadow.
You've carried it long enough. I promise.
On that note...

That's as easy as $25!
AND you get to keep that rate for ALL of 2017, no matter how many times you choose to book with me.
What are you waiting for?
I am here. I SEE you. Get in touch.
Written with Love and Wishes for 2017!
Everything is about evolution. We seem wired to move ‘towards’. The ‘what’ of that towards could be a whole range of things and will vary.
Career, Health, Relationship, Emotional well-being, Clean Living, Healing from a past experience, getting over an Addiction… The list is endless.
They all have one thing in common: Starting over. And practicing new habits that will support the transition and change we seek.
While it’s a common talking point that new habits are a matter of repetitions to allow the brain to form new connections which eventually develop a new ‘go-to’ action; this piece is about the Habit Relapse.
As a coach that works with Energy, Intution and Manifestations, I did think twice about writing this one. I didn’t want to put out a suggestion about failure, especially if like me, a lot of you are in the midst of changing, evolving or creating new habits.
But not writing this piece would be unauthentic, because in my personal journey of evolution, I have failed, plenty times. And I have my moments even today. It’s what makes ALL of us human.
So here I am, writing about Habit Relapse and the Five must do's when you Do!
A habit relapse is when you go back to actions or thoughts that didn’t serve you to begin with. It is going back to the old ways of doing things and it's not uncommon when you set out to change something. After months, weeks or days of moving in the direction that uplifts you, you find yourself in an all too familiar spot!
I’ll be honest; it can be deflating, discouraging and draining. I mean who LIKES to go back on progress?
But when and if we do find ourselves in that place, what do we next? How do we deal with it?
I've had my fair of share of trails and erros and these are my top five suggestions the next time you find yourself at the crossroad. I’d like you to remember and use these five points to get back on track:
I don’t pretend to do new habits or changes perfectly but THESE FIVE have worked for me every time. I find that if I follow ALL these when I relapse, I tend to snap out of it faster.
Here's to your success, your discoveries and your happiness.
Oh, and while you are at it, let me know what the #1 change is for you right now and how you are doing with it?
