Plan A

We all have a rough draft of the way we want our lives to look. Within this rough draft, it's easy to start acknowledging the parts that don't seem realistic or achievable. Once we start over-analyzing how "impossible" our plans seem to be, we start coming up with Plan B.

Plan B is what I like to call the Ego's Plan. This is the plan that you'll embark on if Plan A doesn't work. The plan that isn't nearly as good as Plan A, and it's kind of like the backup option. 

Well I'm here to hit you with the hard truth. 

THERE SHOULD NEVER BE ANY OTHER PLAN EXCEPT FOR PLAN A. 

Here are the top 5 ways to ensure that Plan A always works: 

1) TRUST THE PLAN

When you are so invested, determined, and passionate about something, you'll do whatever it takes to make it work. Believe so fully and deeply in whatever your plan may be that you leave yourself with no other option besides success. 

2) SET ACHIEVABLE GOALS

Make sure Plan A is completely achievable for you. That being said, don't sell yourself short. Often times we underestimate our abilities. Start recognizing that you can do ANYTHING you set your mind to. Start thinking about different goals you may have and acknowledge the goals you get really excited thinking about. Those are the goals you should start to conquer first. 

3) INVEST TIME & ENERGY

Be proactive. Don't just sit around and wait for your dream to become a reality. Start by making a daily schedule and planning out how much time per day you plan to invest in your goal. This will allow you to hold yourself accountable for putting in the time and energy. 

4) MANIFESTING SUCCESS

THOUGHTS BECOME THINGS! Step into your inner child and day dream about your goals. Create a vision board, journal through the process, and meditate! These exercises are inspired by the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction is based around the idea that "like energy" attracts "like things." ASK. BELIEVE. RECEIVE. 

5) STAYING GROUNDED & ALIGNED

Aligning yourself with your Plan A is one of the most important steps in this process. If you aren't in alignment with your mind, body, and soul then you certainly won't be in alignment with your plan. Take care of yourself during the time in which you want to achieve your goal. Focus on your mental, physical, and emotional health. Practice meditation, yoga, mindfulness, and journaling. 

 

We are all capable of achieving our goals. Follow these 5 steps and make them happen.

NY ---> LA

The end of 2017 was a rollercoaster of excitement, fear, opportunity, growth, and love. I decided to pack my bags and move across the country to begin a new chapter in my life. Moving from New York to Los Angeles has always been a dream of mine and I decided to just go for it on November 8th, 2017. 

The biggest lesson I've learned since being out here is to drop all expectations. I went into this move thinking I would gain more clients, work from the comfort of my home, surround myself with high vibe people, and just fall into all of this LA LA LAND shit naturally. 

Well folks, the Universe has quite a different plan for me. As usual. 

Before moving to LA I decided to do some research of places to take workout classes in my area. I was so excited to see that there was a Pure Barre 10 minutes away from my house. For those of you who don't know me, I LOVE Pure Barre. If you don't know what Pure Barre is, I highly recommend you find the nearest one to you and go sign up for your first week free! I decided to reach out to the local Pure Barre in Woodland Hills to see if they were looking to hire any Barre Tenders (Their term for a receptionist.) Luckily to my surprise, they had an opening! I was hired before I even got out there.

So PERFECT. I hadn't even moved to LA yet and I had 2 new clients, and an awesome part time job that would give me an opportunity to work with high vibe people!

Then another opportunity came my way that was REALLY unexpected. 

Next door to Pure Barre Woodland Hills is a Tanning Salon. I decided to go in after my first shift at PBWH. (PSA: I was the PALEST person in Los Angeles, something had to be done.) 

To make a long story short, walking into that salon was one of the best decisions I have ever been guided to make. I had an indescribable connection with the receptionist who then asked if I wanted to work at the salon. Although becoming an airbrushing technician was not in my desired path, I was somehow drawn to saying yes. I had some extra time on my hands so why not? 

I have met the most incredible people. Not only do I work with the most diverse, beautiful, magnetic souls, but I am also meeting new people every single day. Airbrushing strangers is really interesting. I never expected to take on a role like this, but I LOVE IT. 

There were times in the beginning of this job where I would ask myself WTF am i doing??? But it's become evident to me why I was drawn to this salon. People come in for an airbrush appointment when they want to feel better about themselves. I have been lucky enough to not only make these ladies feel beautiful physically, but internally as well. 

Not only am I a certified Life Coach, but on a soul level, I am a healer. I was put on this earth to heal anyone that comes my way and if that's going to be through airbrushing, so be it. 

Drop expectations my loves. Be open to any and all opportunities.

Procrastinating 101

Procrastinating is something we all struggle with. It is SO easy to just put things off. Today, I'm going to give you lovely readers a few of my go-to tips when I feel like procrastinating. These daily tips, if done religiously, will 100% shift your procrastinating behavior into "go-getter" behavior. 

1) WRITE IT DOWN: We've all been there. That moment where you have 10,000 things to do and you suddenly forget all of them. It is ESSENTIAL to write down exactly what the tasks are when you first think of them.  If you're anything like me, you'll want a journal/notebook/calendar to write it down. If it's easier for you to just take out the notepad app on your phone, that's ok too. Writing down the tasks is the only way to keep track of what needs to be done. Cross off each task as you complete them .

2) Look at your list - do one thing RIGHT NOW: When you begin creating your list, see if there are any tasks that can be done right now. Don't put off "easy tasks" just because they are easy. You'll feel so much better if you just get it done as soon as possible. 

3) Plan out a schedule: The more specific you are with planning, THE BETTER. Take a few moments to plan out the next few days or weeks and assign each task to a specific time. This allows you to be held accountable for getting it done.

4) Visualize: It's time to visualize what it will look like when your tasks are completed. This step is really very important. When you are able to visually put yourself in the shoes of your future self who has completed the tasks, you begin to align your energy in a better way.

5) Reward The Progress: Set up a reward system to ensure you celebrate progress made along the way. So often do we forget to celebrate the smaller steps along the way. Keep the momentum high and continue to celebrate!

Now stop reading this and GET GOING!!!

Manifesting LOVE

Whether you're an app user, a hopeless romantic, a frequent bar hopper hoping to find true love while taking back a shot of tequila, or just someone who wants to be "set up," it's time to narrow down what you're looking for in a partner. It doesn't matter the route you take to find that special someone, but what does matter is your ability to identify if that person is a good match. 

I can't even count the amount of times I've heard a friend say to me, "I wasted my time." More often than not, we tend to give people too many chances even when we KNOW the person isn't a perfect match for us. Why do we do this? Why do we think we have to "tolerate" certain qualities in people? Why do we think that there's no such thing as the "perfect person." 

I'm here to fill you in on a little secret... YOU CAN FIND THE PERFECT MATCH. 

You must be saying to yourself, "this girl is full of shit." 

Thanks but I'm not.

I am here to share with you a very useful tip in finding a perfect partner. Ready for it? 

MAKING A LIST OF NONNEGOTIABLES

Take out a sheet of paper and a pen as we embark on this beautifully shallow and important journey to find love. Begin to make a list of everything you want in a partner. EVERY SINGLE DETAIL. Don't forget to note if you want them to look a certain way, have a certain career, live in a particular state, have specific qualities, etc. The more specific you get with this list, the better. 

This list of non-negotiable qualities allows you to put into the Universe what you're looking for in a partner. This exercise is an awesome form of manifesting. The Secret says, "Thoughts become things." If you are able to identify everything you want in a partner, it allows you to dismiss the people in your life that don't have the qualities on your list. You must be patient, and you must have faith, but you WILL find that person if you refer to your list. 

Now imagine how amazing it'll feel once you go on a date, go home and check your list, and notice that the person has every quality.

These Oils Are ESSENTIAL.

When I was diagnosed with Selective IgA Deficiency back in July of 2016, I began getting into alternative medicine. I knew that in order to mentally and physically heal my body,  I had to make a major adjustment in terms of my overall lifestyle. When I was introduced to essential oils, I never looked back. 

In the beginning, I was reluctant to trying these oils. It honestly just seemed like a waste of money and time. But once I started physically, mentally, and emotionally feeling better, there was no turning back. For those of you who don't know what essential oils are, let me explain. Essential oils are the highly concentrated version of natural oils in plants. Although these oils are becoming increasingly trendy now in 2017, they have been used as natural medications for over 5,000 years. The uses of these oils range from aromatherapy, natural medicine treatment, beauty care, household cleaning products, mental health treatments, and much more.

Here's a list of some of my personal favorite oils that I always have in the house and the benefits they provide: 

Lavender: Reduced stress & anxiety. I use lavender in my diffuser every night before bed. This relaxing scent provides a peaceful and serene environment. Lavender also relieves body aches. Any time I wake up with a stiff neck or back, I rub some lavender on the inflamed area and the pain subsides. 

Peppermint: The "go-to" for headaches. Rub a little on the back of your neck or even in your scalp to relieve the pain and stiffness you get during a migraine or headache. 

Lemon: This is my favorite energy booster. This amazing natural citrus smell is FABULOUS in the morning when you wake up. Put a little on your wrists or in your hands to give yourself that energy boost you need. 

doTERRA's On Guard Blend: This incredible blend of Wild Orange Peel, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Leaf, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, and Flower essential oils, protects my immune system more than anything. If you're someone like me who has a shitty immune system, this blend aids in protecting you from environmental threats. I diffuse this blend in my room almost every morning, ingest it with some water once a day, and apply it to my skin after showering. 

Grapefruit: I use a few drops of grapefruit essential oil every morning with my cup of tea. Grapefruit is an excellent aid to weight management and attacking fat cells in the body. I also rub the oil straight on my thighs to target problem areas. You can put a few drops in coconut oil to make a nice moisturizer. 

**side note** you can find essential oils at any health food store. The reason why I prefer doTERRA oils is because they are highly concentrated and safe to ingest. I would rather spend a few extra dollars on oils that will actually work than on the generic Whole Food brands that aren't nearly as concentrated. They also last me MONTHS!!!

If you are someone who takes interest in alternative ways to live a healthy life, essential oils are for you. 

Love & Light,

The Meditation Playlist

What's stopping you from meditating? 

Does the idea of sitting in silence with nothing but your thoughts scare you? 

Are you just making an assumption that you "can't do it" before you've even tried? 

Do you not see the point of doing it? 

 

I've been practicing meditation daily for about 5 months now and the practice has drastically improved my life. Once I was able to get out of my own way and recognize that there isn't a "right or wrong way" to meditate, there was no stopping me.

For me, I realized that combining my love for music and meditation created a euphoric and peaceful experience. I didn't have to be sitting in complete silence to receive divine guidance during mediation. 

If you're a beginner, I want you to make a meditation playlist on either Spotify or Apple Music. These are some suggestions for powerful, uplifting, soulful songs that can guide you to higher consciousness during meditation. 

Painter (Valentine) - Lapsley

Aad Guray Nameh - Jai-Jagdeesh 

Elastic Heart (Piano Version) - Sia

Shake It Out - Florence and the Machine 

Strawberry Swing - Coldplay 

Guiding Light - Foy Vance 

Ek Ong Kar - Jai-Jagdeesh 

Love Like Ghosts - Lord Huron 

Alaska (Acoustic) - Maggie Rogers 

Hot Gates - Mumford & Sons

Ra Ma Da Sa - Snatam Kaur

Protecting Your Energy

Picture this: you're at happy hour after a long day of work. 

You meet up with 6 friends and you're all excited to escape the reality of your terribly stressful workday. But one of your friends is in a shitty mood. Not smiling, staring at their phone, judging everyone, noticeably uptight, etc. 

So what do you do? It’s seriously difficult to not let that person’s negative energy effect your own. But I'm here to tell you that it is possible to not let it get to you. 

When your energy level drops and matches the energy level of the "down" person, you are CHOOSING this. You have subconsciously decided to match that persons energy. This is understandable, but also completely avoidable. 

The truth is, we choose our energy level. We choose how we're going to show up in any given situation. You choose whether someone's low energy is going to shift your own. So how can you make sure your energy doesn't get effected by others? I'll show you! 

  1. Recognize where the low level energy is coming from in the room without judgement. Become aware of the low energy and who has it. 
  2. Remind yourself that this energy is not yours. Once you've identified where the source of the "down" energy is coming from, quickly remind yourself that you do not hold that negative energy. 
  3. Stay high: be the light. Your consistent high energy could potentially raise the energy of the low source. Continue spreading your love and light and watch the shift of the group.

If you've gone through these 3 steps and still find yourself feeding off the negative energy in the room, THEN LEAVE. Again, you have the choice to protect yourself. Feeding off of someone's negative energy is extremely dangerous to your own personal health. Avoid it at all costs. Once you leave the space, do something that typically raises your energy. Whether that is going for a run, meditating, listening to music, playing guitar, watching a movie, cooking, etc. Choose to bring yourself back to the energy level you wish to stay at.

Letting Go

Letting go is never easy. It's not supposed to be easy. 

Whether you're letting go of a loved one, friendship, traumatic experience, or fearful thoughts, you'll never have an "easy" time releasing. 

What if I told you that there is an art to letting go? What if i told you that by fully letting go, you can experience ultimate bliss and serenity? What if I told you that you'll experience many miracles once you allow yourself to let go? Would you believe me? 

Well you should. 

By allowing yourself to "let go," you are opening the door for change. You are allowing yourself to experience the present and the future simultaneously without reflecting on the past. The ability to let go, results in gradual growth for the rest of your life. You begin to recognize how out of sync you are when you're focused on the past. You allow the experiences to take over your present state. This can cause anxiety, depression, and panic. 

When you allow yourself to let go, you are allowing the Universe to provide miracles. You are essentially saying to the Universe, "I trust you. I'm ready to move forward." 

Letting go doesn't mean forgetting. You should never forget. Letting go allows you to be at peace with the past, and opens the gates for moving forward. Once you allow these gates to open, you'll experience the miracles. I promise. 

Start today. If there's something you've been holding on to, release it. Release it with compassion, love, and light. Respect the experience. Respect the person. Respect your involvement in the experience. It's time to let go of things that no longer serve you.  

If you or someone you know needs to let something go, please email me at kaitcoaching@gmail.com for a complimentary coaching session. My friends, it's time to surrender to what is, let go of what was, and have trust in what will be.

You're Fired. MAZEL TOV!

Being fired is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Just recently, I was fired from a part time job I had for a few months. Although working at this store wasn't a full time position for me, I treated it with respect. Most importantly, I used my personable manner to make connections with many of the customers who shopped at the store. That was my favorite part of working there, meeting the customers. 

The store was very casual, in every respect. The way people dressed, the way people talked, even the way we spoke to customers. It wasn't a stuffy office situation, it was just pleasant. 

One day at work, I saw a text pop up on my coworkers computer. The text was from another coworker of mine, who happened to be 43 years of age, and she was completely talking shit about me. Calling me a "Self-entitled bitch." 

It's funny. The old me would've cried when I saw that, but the new me knew that the shit talking was a projection. I didn't need to be liked by everyone. I just had to keep being the light and carry on. 

On a Monday morning, only minutes after arriving for work, my boss confronted me. The conversation that lasted much longer than it needed to, ended with an amicable decision for me to leave. 

I was crying behind my ex-boss's desk. Not because I was sad, but because I was realizing how perfectly things were lining up for me. I was NOT supposed to be an employee at that store. I wasn't like the other girls working there. I never spoke poorly about customers when they left the store, I made impactful relationships with the customers, I treated every person who walked through the door with incredible respect. The other employees didn't follow this example. So when the door was opened for me to walk out, I did without regret. 

There's a misconception about being fired. It isn't a bad thing. If anything, it's a blessing in disguise. I didn't have the courage to leave my job, and then the Universe did the job for me. I am grateful that I was fired.

You see, being fired from a job has a horrible misconception. Usually the initial thought is "I wonder what he/she did wrong?" This misconception is understandable, but not always the case. Being fired has now given me the ability to take ownership for the business I have created. It has given me the opportunity to show up 100% for my purpose in this world without any "part-time" distractions. I am a Life Coach. I am a speaker. I am an aspiring author. I am an exemplary young female in today's society. I am no longer a part-time employee at a store that wasn't meant for me. The store didn't deserve my energy. 

When I got home from being fired, my brand new business cards were waiting for me in my mailbox. Thank you for the sign, Universe.

Fear is Fake

I've never been a great flyer. I would always get myself into a panic and become strangely attentive to all sounds and actions around me. I feel like that's natural for most people who have a fear of flying.

Recently, this fear disappeared. I was on a flight to Cancun with my boyfriend and decided to do a 20 minute meditation on the plane prior to take off. This small meditation was the most impactful meditation I have ever experienced. While listening to "Ra Ma Sa Da" sung by Snatam Kuar, I felt my body dissolve into a trance. As she chanted the powerful mantra through my shitty apple headphones, I returned to a place of love. By reminding myself that I am Light, I am Love, I am OF Love, and I come from Love, a sensation of calmness and guidance rushed over me.

Before I knew it, myself and the other passengers on board were flying over New York City. The sun was shining as I captured the breathtaking view. I returned to Love. 

This was one of the first times that I was able to apply the skills of mindfulness that I have learned over the past few months. And it worked. Everyone has the power to return to love and remind themselves that fear does not exist.

For those of you saying, "of course fear exists wtf is this crazy girl talking about????" 

I get it. And now I'm here to explain why it doesn't exist. Hear me out. 

We come from a place of love. We spend months in our Mother's uterus. We are safe, protected, chillin in the womb, eating shitty sloppy digested leftovers, and enjoying the stillness. Then, the EXACT moment we are born and released into this physical world, we are introduced to fear. You're cold, it's loud, doctors are grabbing you, you are experiencing a sensory overload, you are feeling fear for the very first time. The moment we are exposed to this physical earth, THE EXACT MOMENT, we are introduced to fear. 

But here's the good news!!! We have a choice to go back. To go back to the mindset where we originated. To that safe space we spent months in. To a place of love. 

When you feel fear, anxiety, pain, or panic, RETURN HOME. You have the choice. Change your mindset. Return to Love. 

FEAR DOES NOT EXIST UNLESS YOU ALLOW IT TO.

10 Ways To Be A Happier Employee

 

We all have that one person in our lives that violently complains about working. 

If you're reading this asking yourself, "am I that person?????" you DEFINITELY are. If you're someone who finds yourself complaining about work, here is a list of the top 10 things you can do to shift your catabolic energy and become a happier employee. 

1) BE GRATEFUL: It doesn't matter how rude your boss has been all week. You should always remain grateful for the opportunity you have to be a working person in society.

2) TOP 3: Make a list every morning and every night of the top 3 things that went well that day. Doing this exercise will allow you to show gratitude for all areas of the day. 

3) EAT WELL: Make sure you're bringing snacks to keep you energized throughout the day. Foods such as nuts, dark chocolate, roasted chick peas, fruits, veggies, protein bars, etc will help keep your energy level high and your catabolic energy low. 

4) TAKE TIME FOR A BREAK: Whether it's an hour lunch, or just a long break in the bathroom, use this time to your advantage. Allow this time off during your day to be filled with mindful thoughts. 

5) PODCASTS/BOOKS: If you're someone who commutes to work every morning, whether by train or car, allow this time to be filled with positive distractors. If you're on the train, use this time to read a book, magazine, listen to a podcast, or a new album that just dropped. Avoid aimlessly scrolling through social media — by doing this, you're beginning your day in a state of comparison and judgement. If you drive to work, you can also use this time to listen to a podcast or music. Allow the positive energy come into the picture before you even enter the doors for work. 

6) BREAK THE HABIT: If you find yourself becoming miserable every morning before you even get to work, change your mindset IMMEDIATELY. Just because you had a shitty day at work the day before, it doesn't mean that every proceeding day will be bad. Break the assumptions and limited beliefs and enter each day with a new attitude. 

7) BE CONSCIOUSLY PRESENT: To be consciously mindful at work means you should be consciously present in all tasks. Even the mundane tasks you're given should be treated with the same amount of present behavior as the easier tasks. Make an effort to work more consciously, even if that means you handle tasks a bit slower than usual. 

8) ACCEPT WHAT YOU CAN'T CHANGE: Some aspects of your jobs will not change, no matter how hard you complain about it. Acceptance is KEY. Once you're able to accept the things that will not change in your workplace, you can begin to figure out the ways how you can move forward from the idea of changing it. This also relates to personal acceptance. Accept your strengths and weaknesses so you can take on tasks in a mindful manner.

9) AVOID OFFICE GOSSIP: It is so easy to get sucked into catty gossip with co-workers. Gossiping and complaining about your job while you're at work is not only a risky activity, but it also further deepens the catabolic energy around you. Avoid gossip, change the discussion, do what you have to do to stay positive. 

10) LEAVE THE OFFICE AT THE OFFICE: When you check out of work every day, make sure you don't bring it home with you. You need to have a separation between work and personal life. Allow yourself to have a distinct difference between both so that you don't feel consumed by work. That part of your day is in the past, so leave it there.

Releasing Judgement

The art of releasing judgement doesn't happen over night. This practice is an ongoing shift that needs to be made only when one is willing to make it. 

Talking shit was an activity I used to participate in heavily. I don't even know why I was always gossiping, but it just seemed like a main part of my day to day conversations. Recently, I began shifting my own personal energy and stopped this horrid habit. Studies show that people bond more over what they hate vs. what they love. So, if two people realize they have the same hatred for a particular person, they instantly become legitimate best friends. It's kinda weird when you think about it. How did we grow up in a world where people talk SO MUCH SHIT?

Today, we are living in a world that needs this shift desperately. It's time for us to see the BIGGER PICTURE. It's time for us to STOP deflecting insecurities onto others. It's time to CELEBRATE differences. It's time to stop saying shit just because you may think it sounds "cool." It's time to LOVE. It's time to SUPPORT one another. It's time to BE CAUTIOUS of when you are gossiping. It's time to RELEASE. 

Here's how: 

1) RECOGNIZE - Any time you find yourself in a state of judgement, YOU'RE ON THE RIGHT TRACK! Just getting yourself to recognize when you're judging someone else is huge. Some people continue to judge and think it's ok. Which it may be for them. But if you can reach this level of self awareness, you're already helping the world. 

2) REPEAT - If you find yourself talking poorly about someone else, but realize you're feeling a sense of guilt about what you may have said, REPEAT IT. Repeat what you said out loud in a different way, the way you want it to be heard. For example: 

 "I actually can't believe how fucking annoying she was being last night. Holy shit I was having the worst second hand embarrassment for her." 

*realizes that was maybe a little harsh and wildly unnecessary* 

"Ok I take that back. I'm being dramatic lol. She’s actually not all bad and I feel badly that I even judged in the first place.”  

If you can come to this level of self awareness, you are on the right track. The more you begin recognizing how your judgements are being verbalized, you'll stop verbalizing them all together. And once you stop verbalizing them, they won't even be apart of your internal dialogue. 

3) REMEMBER - This is important. Please remember you literally have NO IDEA what some people are going through. If you happen to see a new picture of someone on Insta and it may appear that they've lost a significant amount of weight, DO NOT JUDGE. We often think we know everything about a person when we don't. That person could be going through a health trauma, a mental issue, or simply have just been exercising much more. Pointing out the person's size and judging how they got to that size is a judgement. 

There's a huge difference between judgement and observations. Observations would be simply noticing that the person lost weight. Judging is when you not only notice the weight loss, but you begin sharing it with friends and start coming up with different theories as to how they got to that size. 

There are tons of topics we can talk about instead of talking about each other. If you feel uncomfortable when people are talking shit, don't participate just because you might feel you "have to." We all have a choice. Be exemplary and be the light. 

Love & Light, 

KAIT

 

Manifesting 101

Ask, Believe, and Receive. It's really that simple. 

For those of you who aren't familiar with the term "manifesting,"  let me break it down for you. Manifesting is intentionally creating what you want. Manifesting, or The Law of Attraction, is a new age concept that puts forward the notion that you can attract into your reality what is most predominant in your thoughts. We all have the ability to manifest our desires. Whether it's wealth, love, a particular job, self-admiration... the list goes on and on. The power to manifest lies within you. Learning how to manifest properly is essential for success. I'll teach you how it's done.

1) BE GRATEFUL

Make this a daily habit. Be grateful for what you have, be grateful for what is on its way to you, and be grateful as you start recognizing when the Universe is lining things up just the way you intended them to. Start and end every day with this mantra: "Thank you Universe for what you have provided for me, and what has yet to come." By starting and ending each day with this mantra, you will recognize a HUGE shift in your energy. 

2) Say BYE FELICIA To Bad Energy: 

Almost always will something get in the way of success. Usually, this lies within a negative mindset. Start training yourself to recognize when negative thought patterns arise and SIT THEM THE EF DOWN. There is absolutely no room for negativity if you want to successfully manifest your dreams. The more you pick up on a positive mindset, the more you begin to truly believe that what you're manifesting WILL come to you. 

3) Trust The Clock: 

The waiting game is the most challenging game to play. Personally, I can't even wait a full 4 minutes for a microwavable popcorn to be finished. TRUST THE UNIVERSE and it's timing! You will get what you've manifested when you are fully ready and open to receiving it. Sometimes life's timing may seem a little unfair. It is essential to understand that the Universe will always provide for you at the perfect time. You may not think the timing is "perfect" in the moment, but trust that it is.

4) BELIEVE IT WILL HAPPEN (aka TRUST THE UNIVERSE)

Training your mind to believe that miracles will happen for you is KEY to manifesting. Sit in meditation, silence, or high conscious thought and envision everything you're manifesting. Make this a daily habit so that the ideas become a reality. 

Some people don't really believe in the power of manifesting. I totally understand why. For some of my "realist" readers, please try to understand that energy attracts like energy. If you exude positive energy, thoughts, and feelings, you will receive the same. 

So what will you manifest today?

Wake Up & Smell The Vitamins

Some people think vitamins and supplements are total bullshit. I totally get it — not everyone is into the whole natural, organic, essential, herbal, overpriced "nonsense" that I'm into. But if I'm being real with you, it's NOT nonsense at all! So, to try and get you on my team, here is a list of my vitamin and supplement regimen and reasons for digesting each:

  • Vitamin C (500mg daily) : Benefits - Protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling! 
  • Tumeric (500mg daily) : Benefits - Natural anti-inflammatory compound, fights against cancer, heart disease, and depression.

I will say this — I have noticed a HUGE difference in my overall wellness and health since starting this regimen.

Only Cool Kids Read

 

To say I hated reading as a child would be quite the understatement. Between my awful ADD and my general lack of interest in novels, reading just wasn’t my hobby. I truly admire people who can get lost in a good book, but I just found all books to be a complete waste of time. (sorry, not sorry, to my bookworm friends) 

UNTIL…

I discovered self-help / self-discovery books in October of 2016. I know… where have I been?! It all started with Gabby Bernstein. If you don’t know who Gabby is, YOU SHOULD. Gabby is a #1 bestselling author, life coach, motivational speaker, cool ass chick, and spirit junkie. I guess you could say I’m kind of in love with this girl. Gabby’s books were my first step into the motivational, universal pond. She is SO relatable it’s almost not even fair. She made transitioning into this high-conscious life way less intimidating. From there, I discovered the excellent community of authors that include Marianne Williamson, Eckhart Tolle, Rhonda Byrne, Jen Sincero, and so many more. I was officially a reader!!! Each book I read taught me something else that just added to this amazing high conscious level I’d been reaching.

I've compiled some of my all-time faves for readers of all kinds. You'll be rushing off to the library in no time! (okay... maybe not the library considering we have amazon and other shit like that but you get my point.)

If you're just starting to dip your toe into self-discovery, these are for you:

-       The Universe Has Your Back – Gabrielle Bernstein

-       Spirit Junkie – Gabrielle Bernstein

-       You Are A Badass – Jen Sincero

-       May Cause Miracles – Gabrielle Bernstein

-       Big Magic – Elizabeth Gilbert

-       The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A Fuck – Mark Manson

If you are super interested in this kind of content and want to take it a step further, try one of these page-turners:

-       The Secret – Rhonda Bryne

-       The Power Of Now – Eckhart Tolle

-       A Return To Love – Marianne Williamson

-       A Year Of Miracles – Marianne Williamson

-       Awaken The Giant Within – Tony Robbins

If you have run out of the easy stuff, you're ready to go ALL out with these texts:

-       10 Messages Your Angels Want You To Know – Doreen Virtue

-       Radical Spirit – Joan Chittister

WTF Is A Life Coach...?

Life Coach: a person who counsels and encourages clients on matters having to do with careers or personal challenges.

* * * *

 Now let's dive right into this. Coaching is a practice used for people who want positive change in all areas of their lives. Coaches generally don’t care about who you were in your past (no offense). You could’ve been the high school over achiever, the girl who was a little risqué and developed early on in life, or the kid who sat alone at lunch. Coaches DO NOT CARE. We look at who you are today, who you want to be, and what blocks you have that prevent you from getting there. Therapists generally dive into a clients’ past experiences to calculate why you are the way you are.  Now don't get me wrong, therapy is very important for many people. Some people desperately need to go back in time to figure out certain triggers or behaviors in order to create that positive change. That being said,  most people who seek coaching instead of therapy are people who have a strong desire to make their dreams a reality.  

What To Expect:

 Now here’s the cool thing about coaching: coaches are guides. As a coach myself, I will rarely tell a client what they have to do. Instead, I provide questions that help the client realize that they have the answers within themselves. I will usually provide a client some sort of homework assignment based on the goals we’ve made together.

For example: If a client wants to write a book by the end of the year, I will ask them what he or she can accomplish by the end of the week to make that goal happen faster. Typically, the client would say that he or she will begin creating an outline for the book. After the client comes to that decision, it is fully up to them to carry out that goal.

I personally don’t care if he or she meets their goal or not. But what I do care about is holding my client accountable for what they said they would do. If someone doesn’t reach their goal, I will go back and help them figure out what blocked them from reaching that goal. As a coach, I hold my clients accountable for making their dreams become realities. No dream is too far fetched. 

Results From Coaching:

Coaching isn’t for everyone. It’s definitely a very “new age” concept. However, the results that come from coaching are incredible. Clients tend to feel empowered, self centered, worthy, acknowledged, and capable after coaching sessions. The client will ideally walk away having a better sense of self, a certainty of their life purpose, and greater appreciation for their life. By asking challenging questions to my clients, it encourages them to look at their lives from new perspectives as well as come up with new solutions to personal problems or external problems. The coaching experience helps people set measurable goals made up of specific and manageable steps. As a result of doing this, a client will gain the tools and techniques to face any blocks life throws in their way. Basically, clients learn how to kick ass in life. End of story.
