Taking the biggest leap of faith (And big changes coming for 2016!)30Jan
Have you ever faced a situation where you had to make a major decision that would change the course of your life?
Did your body cringe in fear, yet your soul knew it was exactly what you needed to do?
If you’ve ever found yourself facing a huge life change, you know exactly how much power a single moment in time can have: the moment you decide to do something totally new.
I’ve been through a major changing event in my life the past weeks. After eleven years living in Hawaii, I am moving to Austin.
I know, you may be thinking, Austin Texas? But there’s no surf there!
The seven questions to ask yourself that will help you make any decision in life24Oct
Lately I’ve been presented with a “dream” project. A project that would pay me great money and propel me to huge exposure in my career. Something that I’ve prayed for to happen in the past has been presented to me at a time that felt like the “perfect time” to do it.
But there was a problem:
There was an energy behind it that was harsh.
Boundaries were overstepped.
I didn’t feel safe.
I didn’t feel comfortable.
For a few days, I tried to “make it work” in my mind. “Oh, I can do this. I only have to push through for a few weeks and then it will be done. I’ll get the money and all the glitz and glam that comes around with this”.
But in truth, as I started asking myself a few questions, I realized that I can’t make it work.
I don’t want to make it work.
Do you feel fear of the future? How to overcome your rumbling mind and move into an abundant mindset09Sep
Today I want to share an interview I did months ago with Mind & Money Coach Kylie Patchett.
What started as an interview focused on how to move into greater Abundance in our lives, ended up as a raw, honest conversation about fear, overcoming hardship and finding a way to deal with our unconscious thoughts that are keeping us apart from our peace and happiness.
When we recorded this interview, I remember feeling this energy of Abundance “taking over” me. There was a sense of enthusiasm coming through me and I couldn’t stop nor control the flow. I usually go where the energy leads me and in this case it was to share about a very personal process throughout the months that followed the separation from my ex-husband.
I always believed that if any of my experiences may help other people to overcome their own challenges then I will share with an open heart and in all honesty. This is exactly what happened in this heartfelt interview.
Four tips to overcome perfectionism03Aug
Are you putting off launching your online program, writing your book, getting your website ready or doing your sales copy?
Over the past few years, I’ve talked to hundreds of women who shared similar scenarios:
They had a dream, but they didn’t want to fail. So they didn’t do anything.
They said they were working on their projects, but they got stuck in the details. They wouldn’t let go of their work, wouldn’t let others see it, until it was absolutely perfect.
Or even worst: they wouldn’t even start working on their projects because of the high expectations they had placed on themselves.
The problem is that we stop moving forward because we get stuck trying to achieve perfection.
When your creativity is held inside you, you get stagnant and start feeling disconnected from your Higher Self. When you’re disconnected from your true nature—the one that creates, manifests, activates, and shares, you may start feeling sad, angry or even depressed.
Most of the time we have these feelings, because we’re avoiding what we need to do. In that avoidance, we get lost.
Let go of everything to receive EVERYTHING (+Take a peek inside my home!)13Jun
Sometimes in order to make space for Abundance in our lives, we need to go through a huge shift. Sometimes we have to let go of everything to receive EVERYTHING.
Sometimes it involves letting go of relationships that are not serving us for our growth anymore, living situations, the way we are approaching our careers or the way we are living our lives overall.
Last year I “lost it all”: my health, my marriage, my home, my career for a full year, my joy, my happiness.
For four months I could barely move out of the bed from an accident I suffered that led me to a brain injury that lasted 13 months. Every single day was a nightmare. My head was pounding and I couldn’t do anything at all. For the first three months I couldn’t even read an email because I would get fatigued.
Then divorce came, shock, anger, depression, feeling totally lost.
One night, as I was lying in the grass under a starry sky listening to Led Zeppelin, I realized that I was feeling totally empty.
It wasn’t a “bad empty”, neither a “good empty” feeling. Just neutral: No desires, no pull, no wants.
Total nothingness. A big, empty, uncomfortable space that I had no idea how I would fill up, if that would ever happen.
I allowed myself time to heal and nurture my body and soul. I went back to the basics of eating well, spending time with my dog and surfing whenever my body allowed me. I meditated a lot and then some more.
The void started to get filled slowly by a Loving force.
Today, I feel full to overflow. Full of gratitude, joy and Abundance in my life.
I see the perfect plan that the Universe had for me, that is much greater than anything I could have dreamed of.
There’s only space for LOVE in my life, and nothing else. Just Loving (Love-in-Action) manifesting itself through my family, my old and new friends, the beauty of Hawaii, the connection with people like you that read what I write (thank you).
As my life got fulfilled from within, the outer manifestation started to reflect that Abundance as well. Today I’m writing this post from my new condo as I watch the turquoise ocean from my window.
A surprise I wasn’t expecting- How Abundance Manifests in Our Lives23May
I wrote this post a few days ago on my Facebook Page, and there was so much great response from my readers that I though I should share it with you as well:
“Woke up for the first time in my new place. I don’t know how these things happen to me, but I ended up once again beside the ocean. The Universe has a wonderful way of surprising me with its plans…
A month and a half ago, I was informed I needed to leave my rental studio up in the hill in Pupukea. I went into a shock for five minutes, wondering why lately in my life there’s always more change on top of change. I didn’t have a clue of what to do next.
I started looking for places to rent and that search changed into looking into buying my own place in Hawaii instead of renting. I found this tiny studio, with this ocean view at an incredible low price only 25 minutes from my favorite surf spots.
Yesterday I moved in. It took 15 hours of non- stop work with friends helping along the way. Now I’m laying in my mattress (no bed yet), surrounded by boxes and bags, just a huge mess. But I couldn’t be any happier. This is the view from my bed.
