Are you hiding your rear?
I don't just mean your physical features, but what about the backend of your business, finances, and relationships?
You see, when we hide something about ourselves from others...chances are that we could be sabotaging our lives in ways we don't even know.
I recently discovered that my secret shame of my back side, wasn't just about my body, but was actually harming my business, finances, relationships and so much more....
You may not be hiding your backend, but maybe you're ashamed of your belly, you feel inadequate, you don't like the size of ___________________(fill in the blank).

Do you want more freedom?
I guess the above question depends on your perspective.
Money can change more people's realities. The more money you have, the more change you can create with it. Almost everyone on the planet is searching for more....
But how many people do you know truly have wealth and freedom? Most people that don't have money are always searching for a way to have more so it can afford them peace of mind. And most people who have money are hiding it for fear that some day it may get taken away from them.
Is that freedom?
If you don't have money...ask for more...enjoy the journey...and below might be some ways for you to create more.
And if you have it...ENJOY IT!! Your joy is the invitation for people on the planet to see a different possibility.
Wherever you are in your journey...please don't make yourself wrong for it.
It's a journey.......
Did you know the universe desires to contribute to you? It desires for you to be lit up, alive, full of joy and possibilities and living the life you'd like to have. It desires you to feel the abundance of everything around you......
What if everything in your life is designed to make you more money? What if you didn’t have to create and receive money by yourself? When we conclude that we are the only source of money coming in then we limit the abundance that desires to contribute to us.
Your home, your clothes, your car, your children, your relationships, and your business can all contribute to making you more money. Ask for contribution from EVERYTHING and see what shows up.
Everything you have in your life is designed to contribute to you.
Less than 4 years ago, I was a new mom, with a new baby....and I had to find a way to make money. I knew long before I was going to have children...that if I ever had a child, that being was going to contribute to creating a greater life. In my 20s I had visions of having a kid and traveling the world.
The only way I knew I could be a mom is if I could travel the world with my kid and allow our lives to be greater together.
So, with a newborn, no job, practically no money, and no foreseen future of how I'd create a different reality....I was on a mission.
I had long forgotten about my vision in my 20s, but I knew that something greater for me, my son, and my family was possible.
So, I asked my son from the time he was born to help us make money, to contribute his energy to helping me see a different possibility. I also asked him in the womb what his vision of our future was and if he was willing to show me the way.
His vision was enormous and at the time, I had no idea how I was going to make that happen, so whenever I could, I asked him if he could contribute to showing me the way.
It may sound crazy, but I wasn't willing to go at this journey alone. I wanted help and I wanted him to know he was a part of the co-creative possibilities of this journey together.
He may not have been able to speak words, but his energetic contribution continues to increase the abundance, joy, and living we're both willing to have. You see, I've discovered for myself that creating, generating, and having money is more about the energy I'm willing to be. When I'm not in my head logically trying to figure it out, more can show up.
I say this, to invite you to consider all the things in your life that could contribute to making you more money. To giving you the sense of abundance no matter where you go.
You can ask every relationship you have to make you more money. Your partners, spouses, children, friends, parents, etc. Everything in your life can contribute to you if you are willing to see the gift in everyone and everything around you.
Think of someone in your life....someone you care about who you want to see succeed. Would you do anything you could to help that person see the brilliance of them? Would you want to contribute what you know to creating a greater future? Now imagine, that same person is unwilling to receive from you...convinced they need to do it themselves.
None of us needs to go at life, living, abundance, and freedom alone. The universe is an amazing, vibrant, radiant gift of possibilities if we are willing to see it that way.
So next time you are pondering how to generate and create more money...ask...who can contribute to you?
Below are some questions to play with to increase having, creating, and generating to allow all the things in your life to make you more money.
Play with the above questions and start to see all the things in your life as a contribution. If you become aware of things that are no longer in alignment with the life you'd like to create, maybe it's time to let them go.
This is your journey....and from my perspective....it's time to fly!

Have you ever had something happen...and you think..WAIT!!! That wasn't suppose to happen!!!
Last night, I had one of the kindest, most caring body work/energy sessions from a good friend of mine! It truly knocked me out. We were originally going to trade, but when I woke up, he said...you need to rest...I'm going to go and let you sleep.
I thought...WHAT!!?? That's not what we planned!!
I'm suppose to give back.
This one little gesture brought so much up for me.
I realized it was one of the first times ever that I allowed someone to gift me somehting life changing and I didn't try to find a way to pay them back. I had to step into receiving in a whole new way.
This receiving totally is new for me. You see...I was taught I needed to not need or depend on anyone or anything. I needed to create my own life and while that has served me well in lots of areas of my life, it's also served as a barrier to other areas of my life where I have been missing out.
You see...I usually only reach out to others when it's urgent and I'm desperate. When I have a massive need/longing/ache for relief. ( I'm sure none of you do that.....)
But to reach out because I just want some support...that was never an option in my universe.
And so I've noticed that I've missed out on some of the kindest people on the planet. Is it easy for you to contribute to someone that has it all figured out? That's not any fun!! Try buying a gift for someone that has everything? Fun? Or not so much?
I realized...I no longer want to wait for desperation to rear it's ugly head before I reach out.
After receiving this massive change in my universe.... I saw all the places where I have been extremely uncomfortable lately.... I've been asking for a lot of change...like change in every area of my life, but especially change in my business, in my work, in who I work with, and how I show up.
I thought that I needed to be strong, but what I realized is receiving the help and contribution and kindness from others is the best way to move forward.
Growing up, I was never taught to receive. If I got a gift, I had to write a thank you note. If someone gave me something, I had to offer my services or manual labor back to show my gratitude. If I was ever given something that was overly generous, my parents would make me give it back or not accept the gift at all.
It sets a kid up to really not receive all the magic and aliveness that's around us.
But here's the thing that it taught me that I am learning to let go of....
This seemingly innocent gesture on my parents part taught me that I had to work for everything myself. That life wasn't easy....and more important....the most detrimental of them all....being me was not enough.
It's my belief that we should teach our children that who they are is enough!!
I mean...how much therapy, and years of personal work have you spent trying to get to the root belief that indeed...no matter what...you are enough!!
If we all believed we were enough, we would have a very different reality...heck I'd probably be out of a job....and I'd be okay with that.
So here is my message to you right now: No matter what your parents taught you....you are enough. No matter what rolls around in your head all day long that doesn't make you feel alive...ignore it...you are enough. No matter how many people tell you no.....there are thousands more who will tell you YES....you are enough.
But you have to belief it. You have to know that being you is more than enough. Being you is the gift that changes the world.
Being you is the space where possibility meets the moment and anything can happen in that moment. The trick is...you are the creator...so set your feelings of insecurity, fear, and not enough aside.
Stop buying the BS! You are enough. Embrace it! Trust You! And trust your knowing.

Summertime is a time to get out, explore, and play, but what happens if you feel like being an introvert?
There is a time for every season...even resting in the summer.
If you are currently feeling the call to be introverted and quiet, then you just might be on the edge of creation.
What does your business and body require of you and what questions can you ask to be the expansive energy of you?
Every question creates a possibility.
Don't seek the answer, instead acknowledge the energy that comes up everytime you ask a question and seek to follow the lightness of that energy.
What does your body desire to be and do in the world that you're not letting it be?
What would you do if you could go to the moon....for free?
Imagine viewing the planet from a whole new perspective?
Would you still hang onto your problems? Would things seem insignificant?
What would you choose?
S - P - A - C - E
Gives life and living a whole new meaning!!
You might not get a free trip to the moon, but you can find little and big ways to take a break from your normal thoughts, feelings, emotions, and fear....
Get in nature...Give a tree a hug....
Push your thoughts and your feelings and your anything out as far as you can go....take your thoughts and push them out...out...out...out.....
And invite the SPACE.......
Instead of re-cycling the patterns of panic or fear or grief or worry....find the space where there is no thought....
And see what happens.
When you stop filling your time, your calendar, your business with stuff, you can begin to use space to your advantage. The first step is in recognizing all of the places where you immediately try to fill your head with thoughts, or your time with things. Once you acknowledge the places you do that, you can begin to create the change that will create a whole new way of living and being.
What do you know about being you.
Would you like more space?
It isn't just about being in a quiet room meditating, or avoiding chaos. It's about connecting to the essence of your being while navigating the chaos of life. See the video below from the busy streets of Rome

I wonder what it will create for you?
Hello body, it's me...your owner. I'm sorry I haven't said hello in awhile, I've been busy judging the crap out of you. I've been too busy in my head thinking that's there's something wrong with me or you because I don't like what I see when I look in the mirror. I feel too old, too tired, grumpy, cranky, stressed, frustrated, fat, wrinkled, out of shape, and not enough.
It never dawned on me that I could actually begin to have a conversation with you to see what we could do different...
I've been told if I ask you some questions, it might help change the relational dynamic that we've created.
Can you imagine what your life would be like if you started to have daily conversations with your body?
It's a strange concept in this reality, but one that could dynamically change the way you experience your body...and dare I say life.
Imagine for a second... a relationship that you have where the other person doesn't even bother to talk with you.....unless it's to send negative thoughts, off handed comments, criticisms, judgments, and ridicule your way. I would imagine not many people would sign up to be in that kind of relationship....
And yet look at it....most people have a pretty rocky/abusive relationship when it comes to their body. They deliver self-hatred, ridicule, judgments, negative thoughts, thoughts of lack, poverty, etc to themselves and their bodies almost on an hourly basis. And the worst part is....they don't even know they're doing it!!
Think about it...what's the last conversation you had with your body?
Was it full of gratitude, excitement, and curiosity?
Or did you spend minutes, hours, days, or years telling your body it's not enough? It's too fat? Not skinny enough? Big enough? Tall enough? Pretty enough? You ate too much. You're not exercising enough. You don't like the dress or tie or pants you're wearing. You should really lose weight, and exercise more...you're just not cutting it for me.
Think about it...most of us are programmed to deliver ridicule, judgment, and sabotage to our bodies instead of gratitude, wonder, and curiosity.
It's no wonder there is so much pain and suffering that happens in the body. It's no wonder people are stressed, confused, pissed off, angry, broke, sad, depressed, and alone.
They aren't creating a healthy relationship with one of its primary suitors!
What would it be like if you actually fully enjoyed your food...if your body thanked you after every meal? If you felt lit up, alive, and ready to conquer the world every time you ate?
You see, when you begin to have a conversation with your body, then you can begin to follow everything that makes your body feel good. When your body feels good, then it has gratitude for you....and you have gratitude for it.
There is a lightness and space where you get to discover your body's awareness...and when you discover your body's awareness then you are paying attention to the energetic conversations your body is having with you. The trick is to begin to listen to the subtle whispers of your body's knowing...that light yes, butterflies in your stomach, feel like a little kid...it might almost be nerves...but actually that sensation is EXCITEMENT!!
When your body is excited it tends to desire less food and more space, more play, more aliveness, and more of the big fat YES's that will help you and your body create a different reality.
It's time to let the magic in!!
So if you would like to know how to begin to start a dialogue with your body....one that you can actually hear.....here's what to do:

What's the #1 hidden secret that is sabotaging people from having the best life they could ever have?
You have all the dreams & visions. You've done the manifesting and mapping out the possibilities. You've asked questions, watched the secret, meditated, visualized, asked....and yet.....
it's still not happening.
In fact, you might be struggling, broke, frustrated, depressed, in pain, and the change feels like you're stuck in mud....slow and messy:)
I've been there. I've been super successful early on in my life and I've also hit the bottom of the barrell. And I've watched what happens between being successful and overcoming the fears....and giving into them and continuing to struggle.
My research shows that most people have this hidden secret that is sabotaging their dreams....
Want to know what it is?
Judgment is the #1 killer of people's dreams...you see in order to figure out whether or not you're doing your life, or business, or body, or weight loss, or relationships right, you have to judge that there is a wrong way to do things.
Some of the most successful icons past & present did it their own way....not the right way, not the wrong way...but their way.
And guess what...their way changed the world, created magic, instituted new technology, inspired the planet, and created a greater future. They opened up doors to new possibilities that didn't exist before.
There was no right way...in fact...there is no right way...there is just YOUR WAY!
And you know something about the future and your visions and the possibilities for a different planet that no one else knows.
It is within you to bring those dreams to fruition.
But if you are judging yourself that you are doing it wrong...or WORSE...judging that you're doing it right, you will cut off your awareness to the brilliance before you.
So what if there was no right way?
What if instead of judging you, your business, your money flows, your body, your relationships, your parenting....
You could focus on CREATING?
Do you know that the average person spends at least 3-6 hours a day judging themselves. This judgment literally cuts off your awareness, diminishes your creativity, leads to lack and feelings of insecurity, reducing self-worth.
Can you build a million dollar business if you don't believe in you? Maybe?
My question is....Why would you want to?
Most people don't believe me when I tell them that most people spend 3-6 hours a day judging themselves....Imagine if you had an extra 3-6 hours to focus on your genius? To institute your future, to inspire magic?
What would the planet look like?
So let's just look at it for a second....
Think of the last compliment someone gave you...did you receive it, believe it, revel in it, have gratitude for it...or did you brush it off...not take it in, thinking they must not see what you see?
When's the last time you looked at your bank account and thought you don't have enough?
What about thinking that there aren't enough people paying for your services? Or your not good enough?
So let me ask you....how much time a day do you spend judging you and not spending time focusing on your creative brilliance....
I bet it's more than you think!
So my challenge to you is to let go of the judgments that are hidden, secret, and preventing you from creating the life of your dreams!!
What if you could celebrate you and your creations everyday?
If it's time to let the magic in and try something different...I invite you to go here to join a revolutionary program that will change the way you LOOK at everything!
Want more success, more aliveness, more vibrancy, better relationships, more money, more confidence?

You know that voice in your head that says...
not now...later...I can't afford it...next time.
It would be nice if I had the money.... (or better if I had the time) Or I can't afford to miss work.....(you know thoses excuses)
Five years ago I was in financial crisis. So much so that I refused to spend $600 to fix my car...so I rode my bike for 3 months straight....
Yes...looking back, I realize how insane I was. I think I spent at least that in entertainment and random snacks or meals out...but to fix my car...that's ludicrous!!
Now,...5 years later, a thriving business, a single mom, and a world traveling entrepreneur, I'm willing to spend $600 on lots of things...most of them bring me joy & an aliveness of being!!
But let's go back to the beginning....to the place I was before.....
I knew I needed a change....I wanted help and so I went to massage therapists, paid for therapy, bargained my way through everything.....and yet...the one thing I refused to chose was the thing that would give me the most freedom....and the killer was....there was no discount..no bargaining....no wheeling and dealing my way down from the price.
So I took the leap....I made myself take out my credit card and forked over an amount of money on a workshop that I had never been willing to pay before....
yet I spent $25,000 in ONE YEAR on Grad School, was willing to spend a couple hundred dollars on good wine and food for my husband's birthday....I was willing to buy him a $500 camera and put it on the credit card...but I wasn't willing to spend money on something that would change my life...for good!!
Doesn't that seem insane??!!
Looking back now...it totally does, but when i was living paycheck to paycheck and struggling in my brain...I couldn't fathom putting that kind of money into my own personal growth. My point of view was...I can't afford it.
And then something crazy happened!!
I realized I could no longer continue telling myself lies about my life...I thought my life was GREAT and AMAZING...but truth is I was working 80+ hours a week. I was exhausted at the end of every day. I was using food to satiate a big hole in my life and I didn't even know it. And the kicker is I didn't have any time for myself!
I remember going to a christmas eve party. I arrived around 7:30pm after working an insane amount of hours that month and I got to the party, found the fireplace and sat and stared at the fire...I couldn't talk to anyone...like literally my brain could not spit out words...it was almost embarrassing. I left about an hour later. Went home and crashed.
That's when I knew something had to change.
It's hard to imagine spending alot of money on ourselves...on our spiritual, mental, and emotional growth, yet we'll go to costco and spend $500-$1000 as if material goods, food, groceries, etc, will fix the disconnect between the life we're living and the one we've decided we can't have.
That decision 5 years ago to spend $1,500 on myself was the best and hardest investment I ever made. I took an Access Consciousness 5 Day Retreat and everything in my life changed. I didn't have to effort the change....it happened gradually, and compared to EVERYTHING else I ever tried...it was the fastest, easiest, funnest change to date.
Fast forward 5 years later, I am an Access Consciousness Facilitator. I travel the world, my son comes with me on lots of trips, has more passport stamps than many American adults. and life is almost always amazing.
This isn't to brag, this is to say that there is no price for your happiness....for peace of mind, joy, and the knowing that you can truly have anything you desire....that is priceless.
So, next time you get invited to expand your life and living,....just ask yourself....what will my life look like in 5 years if I choose it?
You never know, you could just like you, your life, and your body that much more!!
Imagine who you'd be if you gave yourself the gift of you.........

So often, I have spent my life trying to figure out the “HOW” of things before I’ll let myself have it or create it. You see, in my cute logical brain, I want to know how things are going to show up so that I won’t be disappointed if they don’t. It’s like, I want to satisfy my ego, instead of leaving myself defeated and disappointed.
But here’s the thing….if I am constantly calculating the “how” before I’ll let myself have anything, there is a HUGE limitation in that mind set.
I am limiting myself, my beliefs on what I can and can’t have, and I’m also secretly telling the universe that I don’t trust that it can deliver magic beyond my wildest dreams.
5 months ago, I made a huge business shift. I decided to get completely out of my comfort zone. I started to look at the direction I wanted to head with my business, but I had no freaking clue! I let go of an amazing team of incredible beings and I decided to fly solo, give myself some space and time to really get into the bigger vision of my business and life.
What I saw blew me away. I was beside myself because at the time it seemed so out of my reach. In fact, my vision seemed down right ridiculous…there was no way that I knew how to make that vision a reality.
No matter how uncomfortable I got, overtime I thought about the vision and the possibilities, I got happier, things got lighter, my smile increased, and the energy all over my body was like a giddy little kid experiencing a moment of euphoria.
So instead of talking myself out of my dreams and visions, I started to ask questions.
My favorite question that i played with every day was:
What am I not asking for that if I started asking for it, it would show up
instantaneously with ease?
That week of letting go of my team and flying solo was hard and uncomfortable. I think I locked myself in my house for a day and cried and decided that I was crazy…there’s no way…my dreams seemed impossible.
I gave myself permission to indulge in the thoughts that weren’t expansive. I decided I needed to get them out of my head….so I did.
The next day, there was more space…still uncomfortable, but more space,,,,
So I continued to ask the question….
What am I not asking for that if I started asking for it, it would show up
instantaneously with ease?
I got happier, I could perceive the possibilities, there was more space in my universe….
From there, I could ask more questions:
Within 2 days, I had a new client (beyond what I could imagine). I met someone who was the invitation of the clients I was asking for, and I started to see that it was just a matter of changing my vision.....
Of being willing to go beyond the comfort zone, above the clouds, and start to create the magic without knowing how.
So as you navigate your life and the future you’d like to create, go beyond the how, get into the wild part of your dreams and start asking for the things you have no idea how you’ll create it!!
You can start to make a list of those things.
15 years ago, I was a broke college student getting my masters in somatic psychology. I had spent a month on the island of Hawaii studying, working, cooking, cleaning, exploring, adventuring, and swimming with dolphins. I remember taking out a pad of paper and writing down everything I wanted to create as my future.
I wanted to travel the world with ease.
I wanted weekly massages
I wanted to work with people and help enrich their lives (I had no idea the how)
I wanted to make at least $100,000 (I was making $12/hour and spending $100K on a masters degree…I was broke, had terrible credit and was getting pursued heavily by debt collectors)
I wanted a relationship that was a partnership in possibilities
I wanted my work to be meaningful
I thought about possibly having a kid (but I mad the demand that the only way I would do that is if the child could travel the world with me and add to my life instead of take away from my life). I didn’t want to feel trapped by my choice to have a child.
There were some other things on my list, but those are the ones I remember.
About 18 months ago, I revisited that list and I went…OMG!! Everything I asked for…I have and created!! Seriously!! How did that happen?
What did I know then? That small gesture of writing down things that seemed impossible to me then….they were the invitation to a future of possibilities I had only dreamed of.
The beginning of 2016, I wrote down a list…a list that feels so big I’m still pinching myself….
At first I thought…How dare I!!?? Who do I think I am asking for those kinds of ridiculous requests, but you know what happened?
Everytime I looked at it…I got happier, my body lit up, I felt alive, free, and energized…it was the start of something magical.
I have no idea how those things are going to show up, but what I do know, is that eventually they will happen. Some of the things are starting to show up and as one of my really good friends, Dr. Dain Heer says: “It never shows up the way you think it’s going to!!”
So start asking….write it down. Grab a pen and paper and start to imagine what it would be like if you actually started asking for your dreams to come true!!
Grab a pen & paper, and if you don’t have a pen and paper, grab your iPhone and in the notes section create your list. Give yourself permission to go to the things you haven’t give yourself permission to dream about.
This is your life. No one will create it for you, but you, if you are obnoxious enough to believe it….you will create the life of your dreams!
