are you a recovering people pleaser? Soul Mantra inside!

I don’t know about you, but I am a recovering worrier and people pleaser.

Making sure everyone else felt comfortable (even when I was depriving myself) was the norm.

A few examples from my life that may sound familiar to you:

*Agreeing to “volunteer” my time and energy after work hours without compensation even though it meant missing a date with a friend I hadn’t seen in forever…in the name of wanting to be seen as a “team player.”

*Staying in a one-sided friendship with a girlfriend who drained all my energy, calling me only to complain about her relationship problems, only to find that when the conversation turned to me and my stuff, she suddenly had to go. But ignoring her calls seemed “mean”

and now the funny one….

*Buying an extra box of Girl-Scout cookies, because I felt bad saying no to the little girl who asked me, even though I had set an intention to stop eating so much sugar.

The common denominator in each of the scenarios above was…me.

And the core of it all? 

I had a hard time setting healthy limits with my time, energy and resources for fear of 

:: not wanting to be judged

:: not wanting to rock the boat 

:: not wanting to be seen as weird, greedy or self-indulgent

and the list goes on.

Sound familiar?


But here’s what I realized as I learned how to become a master manifestor and help others manifest too.

Tough Love Tip:

When you respect yourself and set healthy limits, you create a safe container for all that you desire to find you!

When we have a hard time setting limits with ourselves and others, it also diminishes our self-respect and our ability to draw in/magnetize the gifts that the Universe wants to bring you! 

So what happens?

:: You ask for less than what you want and you get (surprise!) nothing…. or a watered down version of it that doesn’t leave you satisfied or excited. 

:: You attract people who mirror your wounds. They validate how you feel about yourself-that your time, energy and resources aren’t worth much. 

:: You feel jipped, because even though you’re doing all the “right” things: journaling, exercising, meditating, etc, you feel exhausted or restless and think the Universe just doesn’t care about you! 

I know…I’ve been there!

Ready to stop it?

Here’s the first step.

People-Pleasing SOUL MANTRA:

Say this aloud to yourself in the mirror 2X/day with intention. Put your hand over your heart and stand up.

“I respect myself.

“It is safe for me to set healthy limits around my time and energy.

“I now create a safe container for my desires to find me! And so it is!”

The more you say it, the more you will start to believe it and you’ll be on your way to drawing in more of the types of people and situations that lift you up! Stay tuned next week for another tip on recovering from people-pleasing syndrome!

Now it’s YOUR turn.

the unconventional action I took that got me to NYC

If you’ve been on here awhile, you may know that last year, I manifested one of my burning desires to live in Manhattan (NYC). The whole live sex-and-the-city fantasy mixed with nostalgia you can say. (my parents fell in love in the city and our family history goes way back there.)

And last year, I manifested it. From a beautiful place to live, to amazing new friends (literally within 48 hours of moving) to getting signed on a new Sirius XM podcast station at the Plaza hotel (while I was just messing around in flip flops and drinking a Bellini!) It was one of the most synchronistic, Divinely-ordered life experiences I have ever had. 

And today I want to share with you one step that helped me create this with the intent that it helps you manifest with more confidence.

Sound good?

Yay! So…I was living in Kansas City at the time and I was feeling super conflicted because well, I had to leave the man I loved to pursue this insistent dream that just wouldn’t go away. Even when I kept pushing it to the side, it kept coming up until one day I snapped.

Soul-based desires are like that. They just don’t care how much you try to lie to yourself because they see the real you.

I remember it vividly. I was at home and was suddenly struck with the feeling that I needed to paint. And I kept getting a specific visual of what to paint. My whole body was tingling and I grabbed some old newspaper, my watercolors and a blank canvas I had forgotten about, plopped down on the hardwood floor in our tiny living room and went to town.

Disclaimer: I hadn’t painted in years. But it’s like Spirit and the Angels were guiding my brushstroke.

As I furiously mixed the colors and filled the blank canvas, I started to cry. Uncontrollable, deep, gut-wrenching sobs. 

Keep painting, a quiet voice said.

So I did…a taxi, a skyscraper, even the damn Kodak billboard.

I was painting Times Square…. Goddess style.

Then I started laughing because the final stroke was of big black Old Hollywood-style sunglasses out the taxi cab. No face. Just the glasses and a hand.

It was so me.

And when the painting was done, the tingling didn’t stop.

It got stronger.

I said aloud, “I’m going to New York. I AM going to New York. I will tell him (bf) tonight. It’s happening.”

To make a long story short, I told him that night.

And within 3 weeks, I packed my bags and headed for the Big Apple.

Everything fell into place like magic and with a bucket of uncertainty about my relationship and a heavy dose of faith and optimism, I kissed him goodbye and boarded the plane.

Sometimes it takes Spirit literally taking our hand and helping us see in a very literal form like a painting what is important to our Soul’s journey.

Even when it scares us.

So, that’s my big secret.

I painted. 

But it was no ordinary painting.

I had Spirit in the driver’s’ seat and an unwavering intention and commitment to surrender to whatever was waiting for me on the other side. 

Now let’s take it to you.

  1. What’s something you’d like to manifest in the next 30 days? SHARE IT WITH US in the comments as social proof!

For the brave:

  1. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the highest, what would you say your level of commitment is to your manifestation? 
  2. If it’s less than 10, ask yourself why. What’s missing? What’s holding you back? Figure out why it’s not a burning desire because unless you want it bad enough, it can’t really come to you. Once you’ve solidified it, go to step 4.
  3. Paint. Dance. Write. Choose a creative activity and surrender it over to Spirit. See what happens! Follow the next right action!
