My Fave Self-Love Ritual – Happy International Self-Love Day!

Happy International Self-Love Day (Feb 13!)!

Did you know that in numerology, the number 13 actually represents magic and alchemy? It’s a vibration that can help you transform any beliefs and ways of being that you know are standing in your way, especially around love!

One of my fave things to do on this day and actually this week especially is to block off time to do a self-love experience.

Regardless of your relationship ‘status’ creating a 5-star self love experience, even if it’s just for 15 minutes can have a really positive impact on your mental and emotional health, which impact the quality of your relationships and also level of self-confidence!

In this week’s short (but super powerful) audio, you’ll learn: 

  • top 3 elements you’ll want to include when designing a 5-star self-love experience (whether it’s the whole day or 15 minutes!)
  • the difference between being self-ish and self-love (this is often misunderstood, esp if you’re an empath like me!)
  • the benefits of a self-love experience that go way beyond the in-the-moment enjoyment and more!

This Will Make You Laugh (True Story)

Hi Goddess!

Happy Tuesday!

Have you ever had an unmistakable sign from the Universe? When it comes to love, I felt like a good chunk of my dating life, I was “spinning” and trying to make things happen. I was very much in my masculine energy.

This was helpful when it came to work and being productive, but when it came to attracting partners that really appreciated and loved me…. not just for what I did for them but for who I was, I kept striking out.

In the early 2000’s, I was also dating this hot Navy lieutenant long-distance who was exciting but I never knew where I stood with him.

Around the same time, I was first introduced to Angels and intuition and all that “woo-woo” stuff by a good friend named Zack. (Zack if you’re reading this, I know you will smile!)

I thought it was super silly but one night really reminded me of the power of surrendering, especially in love.

If you’ve been in my world awhile, you may have heard this story before but it’s a great one to remember if you’ve forgotten how loved you are, have been trying to do it all yourself and need a little nudge to reconnect.

Full disclosure: I haven’t shared this video in a long time. My hair is well, different than it is now. It is from a submission video I made to Hay House way back in 2010 about the power of intuition, trusting and asking for Divine assistance in dating. Since that time, I’ve spoken on numerous stages where I look wayyy more polished, and “together” but my heart and intuition said to share this raw one with you today.

After you watch it, I’m super curious:

Q: have you had a similar experience that required you to trust and question your own beliefs around love and being supported?

How to Sharpen Your Intuition Quickly (I Still Do This!)

Happy Tuesday!

Do you tend to doubt yourself when you get a ‘gut’ feeling about someone or something?

I tend to work with a lot of high-achieving, high-performing women who have shared with me on more than one occasion that they want to trust their intuition more in relationships, but there’s a tendency to go into their head and try to “figure it out first.”

When I press on a bit more, they share things like, “It feels really frustrating to have to always figure it out, especially if I’ve had a rough day.” “I wish tuning into my intuition was easier-is there a way to just automate it?!!” (That one made me laugh, but I totally totally get this desire!)

This is completely normal-we are taught and even asked by society and especially in the business world, “What do you think?” first. It’s a reasonable question, but it takes you completely into your mental space before anything else, which overtime, can make it feel very weird and sometimes challenging to drop into your intuition and get more clarity.

It can bring up overwhelm, pushing and self-doubt.

So, in the spirit of keeping things very simple for maximum impact, if you’re serious about shifting this tendency to go up in your head and want to learn how to dial into a gut feeling or nudge or even deciphering an intense dream you had, do this instead.

Don’t Believe Everything Your Mind Tells You (Tales From Paris-Part 1)

Happy Tuesday!

So, have you ever been super excited about something to the point where you become obsessive and then anxious in anticipation of it coming?

You’re not alone! Whether it’s a date, an upcoming promotion or in my case, a dream trip, our minds can be our good friend or our foe.

As we prepare for the last lunar eclipse of 2023 on October 28, it’s the perfect time to release old fears, traumas and rest your mind.

I’d love to share a story with you from my travels-it relates to the power of the mind and what you can do if you find yourself in a tailspin! Sound good?

Paris, Paris…BB?!
You guys may know- I’ve recently returned from a dream trip to Paris. My friend planned an amazing, spacious itinerary and I’d literally been counting down the days, packing and repacking and with two days until go, I was finally starting to relax into the joy and excitement of it when I get a text from a friend that there was apparently an outbreak of bedbugs in Paris. Followed by well meaning messages from followers on social media to the same degree. I know it was to inform me but talk about throwing water on my blanket!

Now, I actually experienced this in one of the cities I used to live in and it was a nightmare and very traumatic for me so as much as I wanted to pretend like I was “all good” I wasn’t. I went down the rabbit hole of google and of course in my fearful state of mind, found plenty of articles to back up all my worries. There were bedbugs found in the airport, the trains, the buses, the movie theater – basically we were screwed.

I went into hyper protection mode and devised a plan of how to protect our clothes, packed my own pillowcase, bought expensive travel size bed bug spray, and generally felt paranoid which is so not Goddess.

Delirious D
The first 2 days into the trip, I didn’t sleep well at all and was scared of the pillows (or the bedbug phantoms on them.) And at the first little sight of a scratchy red mark on my ankle, I started crying,resprayed all the surfaces I could and freaked out that our apartment in Paris was infested. I was ready to board a plane and say screw you to the City of Lights. (Turns out- It was an ant bite from walking around for hours by the Eiffel Tower) After my husband and friend reassured me I was fine- bless them for dealing with me in my sleep deprived, delirious state, I finally got some shut eye, surrendered to the experience and started to relax.

Long story short: we made it through the trip and back home bed bug free. I got to enjoy the city and had a wonderful time but man, how I let my beautiful mind take one text message and let it deregulate my nervous system and nearly highjack my entire vacation! Thank Goddess I didn’t listen to it and got to visit the beautiful Versailles (see pic below!)

Lessons (take if it’s helpful!)
1. When you get triggered by a text, stop. Breathe. Don’t immediately react. Get grounded before responding if at all.
2. Take action from a neutral state- yes there were precautions to take but it would have had such a different quality to it if I hadn’t been reliving an experience from years ago and attaching it to this one. Do some tapping when you realize you’re “taken back” to a triggering moment.
3. Get back in your body-walk, shake, run in place. If you’re in your body, your intuition can kick in and share messages that your monkey mind simply can’t. It just takes a few seconds to redirect yourself.
4. Recognize what you’re choosing to focus on- give airs to your fears but then you can choose to focus on what you do wish to create and experience.

Have a beautiful rest of your week, relax as we head into this last Eclipse and remember: you are loved. You are safe. You are powerful! And so it is!
