Solutions don’t come when you’re staring at the problem

Posted on 23 March 2023

I know how easy it is to get micro-focused on what isn’t working well. Your problems will suck all your attention if you let them.

Yet, if your focus is locked on your problems, you won’t see solutions.

You can stare at what isn’t working, talk about it, chew on it, rage at it… but do that too much or too often, and the problem will become more entrenched in your psyche and harder to change.

Don’t set any problem in stone.

Give it some space and expand your focus.

Lift your gaze to lift your spirit.

Notice the bigger picture.
Notice what is working.
Notice what is flowing.
Remember what’s true about you and real beyond the issue.

Receive from that.

Little things can take you higher — music, a moment of laughter, a coffee break, some exercise, two minutes to write a gratitude list.

Get up from your desk more often. Take a few extra minutes to have a pleasant exchange with someone.

Or maybe you need a bit more space and distance. Give your mind a break from problem solving for a day or two.

You’ll see your problems differently when your focus has expanded. You won’t be stuck in the stuck points.

You are big enough, smart enough, and aware enough to meet even the most difficult situations in your life with creativity and power. A small tweak here or there can unlock just about anything. No problem should be seen as bigger than you.

In the meantime…

Posted on 16 March 2023

Are you in a season that feels uncomfortable?

Maybe you’re in between things.
Maybe you’re waiting for something to happen.
Maybe you’re living through gray or rainy days that feel never ending.

Maybe you’re not where you want to be YET.

If you’re here, it’s not wrong that you’re here.

This may very well be your meantime — the important and necessary space between where you were and where you want to go.

In the meantime, take a breath and look around.

What around you is beautiful?
What around you is full of aliveness?

What can you receive from this slower space and time?

Often the meantime is a healing time, a re-calibrating time, a time in which it looks like nothing is happening, but actually, under the surface, SO MUCH IS HAPPENING.

It’s likely that something is unfolding deep within you that you cannot define or measure or put into words.

It’s also likely that you need to be here because your ‘next’ is still getting created, and it needs a little time.

You could get impatient and antsy in the meantime, but it’d serve you to rest.

Remind yourself:

It’s okay that I’m here.
It’s not wrong that I’m here.
I know where I am going, and I’ll get there when I get there.

If it’s hard to say these things to yourself and believe it, you may need some support and reassurance in your meantime. Instead of getting frustrated, book some sessions. Give yourself the space to process and root deep. Reflect on what’s here and ready yourself for what’s next.

You will move forward when it’s time. It’s inevitable.

P.S. If you’re in a season of life in which you could use support and reassurance, give it to yourself. Book a series of coaching sessions as an investment in your growth. Tell me what you know is shifting, what you’re longing for, and who you hope to become. Sessions give you breathing room, lightness, wisdom and clarity so that you move through each season of your life with ease.

Reach. Rise. Grow.

Posted on 26 February 2023

When opportunities invite you to rise, take the invitation.

Apply for the next position, seek the promotion, enroll in the program, accept the compliment, say yes to the date.

If the only reason not to is your own fear and hesitation to grow — you must.

You may hesitate. You may need some space to ready yourself. That’s understandable.

Seek council. Find your alignment. Muster your courage.

But then do it!

Rise. Reach. Grow.

That risk..
That vulnerable move…
That audacity to reach for more…

That’s your right! It’s your calling.

Life continually beckons each of us to become more. We’re not here to reach a comfortable plateau and stay there. We’re here to amaze ourselves with who and what we can become.

Those who came before you had no idea what kind of life you were going to live. This particular world has never existed before. That means there isn’t a guidebook or even always an example for you to follow. But there is your own inner compass. There is energetic guidance available to you. There are the ever-present currents of Life that will give you lots of information when you slow down and listen.

You don’t have to hustle or push yourself. Simply pay attention to whispers within you. Listen for the impulses, and respond to the invitations.

Evolve. Create. Grow. Become.

As far as you’ve already come, there is more ahead. Be brave. Say YES…!

P.S. Is Life inviting you to grow? Maybe you’re being asked to advance in your career, reach for new level of success, or jump tracks to honor new dreams.

Work with me as an investment in your growth. In coaching sessions we explore the possibilities and feel for the alignment that lets it be easy. I love the work. I love your dreams. I love seeing you rise.

When you’re in between what you don’t want and what you do want

Posted on 16 February 2023

Take it all one day at a time.
Stay present.
Don’t jump ahead

Let the circumstances play out.
Be ready and available.
See what comes and what stays…

Information is landing in.
You’re processing it.
Let it unfold.

Far more is happening than you can see.
It’s happening FOR you.
It’s all on track.

You’ll know what to do when it’s time to do it.
You’ll know what to say when it’s time to say it.
You’ll know your YES and NO when it’s time to know it.

Keep your focus forward.
Your head high.
Your heart open.

Trust yourself.
Trust Life.

Give your desires the space to arrive.

Coaching sessions keep you steady on the journey and aligned with your highest intentions. Could you use that kind of high level support? I’m here for it. Book a free consultation if we’ve never worked together before, or if we have, access my client calendar here.

How To Have More

Posted on 7 February 2023

To land a better job, you have to grow your self-confidence to become a match to that job.

To have a greater relationship, you have to grow your capacity to give and receive, to love and be present with another.

Your next greatest desires invite you to step beyond previous comfort levels into new versions of yourself.

This, in fact, is how you manifest.

Sometimes the growth required to manifest your desires is extremely subtle. It can be hard to quantify or measure from the outside, but in the inner planes it’s very real. A stretch. An expansion. An opening. A change.

Personally, I find these subtle growth edges exhilarating. Here lies the juiciest parts of coaching. My clients and I feel into and find those edges of expansion and gently, gently step into them together. Feeling the space. Finding words for the insights that download with each step forward.

This is the inner work.

Of course, outer actions are also required, but that comes easily when you’re stepping into more of yourself – more confidence, more courage, more heart, more trust, more willingness, more ease…

These subtle expansions change your vibe and guide your next steps.

Can YOU feel your next growth edges?

Think of what you desire to have or experience next.

Who must you become to have that?
What growth does your desire invite you into?

Are you willing?

If so, great! It’s begun.

If not, sit with that for a bit. Can you feel past your fear or reluctance into the possible ‘Future You’ that your desires invite you to become? Touching into that version of yourself will give you something valuable.


P.S. I’m here for the journey towards whatever it is you’d like to manifest next! Pave your way with regular coaching sessions. Book a free consultation if we’ve never worked together before, or if we have, access my client calendar here.

P.S.S. Group coaching is another way to work with me! My upcoming Manifesting Mastermind is an intimate coaching circle that begins next Monday night. We’ll be diving into the nuances of manifestation with the book Ask and It is Given by Abraham-Hicks, while asking for exciting changes to manifest in our lives. Read more and register here.

An invitation to tune up your powers of deliberate creation

Posted on 5 February 2023

There’s so much joy possible when we’re in the flow, easily attracting and experiencing what we desire. I know you’ve had times in your life like this — times of major manifestations! Like when you landed a job you wanted, synchonicistically met your new best friends, or manifested money out of nowhere right when you needed it.

If you think back to those times in your life, can you remember how you felt?

Who were you being?

It’s always out of who we are being that our worlds are created.

I know you know this. Applying it, though, is the trick!

I haven’t taught a manifesting class for quite a while, nor have I run an extended group coaching program for a number of years. But, this year, when I checked in to what felt really fun and delightful to me, that’s what I wanted.

I want to hold space for you to root deeply in the basic principles of creation:

Like attracts like.
Your thoughts create your reality.

And you can be conscious and deliberate about that.

If you feel the call to become more focused, deliberate and conscious about what you’re creating in 2023, join me for this year’s Manifesting Mastermind.

In our first season of this mastermind we’ll be reading Ask and It Is Given by Abraham-Hicks. This is my favorite book on manifesting. It’s simple, powerful and practical.

In our intimate group setting, I’ll offer you guided practices, accountability, coaching, and the space to witness and be witnessed. We learn so much from each other when we gather this way to grow.

Read more and register HERE. We start on Monday, February 13.

P.S. This year holds so many possibilities! You may sometimes feel discouraged or small in your dreams and desires, but it doesn’t take much to shake off that vibe and remember again that you can have what you want. When you need support in that, I’m here for it. Classes are one way to support yourself. Sessions are another. Give yourself what you need to thrive.

Why work with a coach

Posted on 16 January 2023

You create your own reality.

Your life is not happenstance. You play a huge role in creating it…

– by what you choose and don’t choose.
– by how you see and perceive what is unfolding.
– by how you receive or resist what is here.

Also by how you choose to define yourself in the story of your life.

Do you see yourself as a badass?
A powerful manifestor?
One who changes the world with your presence and intention?

I see you as that.

Always, you are creating your life in a myriad of subtle ways that aren’t so easily recognizable from the outside.

That’s why it helps to have someone on your team, like me, who can peer into the subtle realms with you.

What are you really choosing here?
What energy are you bringing to the situation?
In what way is your posture helping or hindering you?

If you have big goals this year (or big challenges), these questions, asked on a regular basis, are gold. Creating the space for your own alignment is one of the smartest things you can do for yourself.

This is what coaching is all about — it’s a thought partnership set up to help you see and make the small shifts within that makes a huge difference in the outer world you’re creating.

It’s fun. It’s strategic. And it pays for itself.

I’d love to partner with you through regular sessions and support you in manifesting your ideal life — one that suits who you are now, and where you want to go next. Once a week, once a month, or once a quarter. Together we can create a coaching plan that works for you, your budget, and your needs. Set up a time with me this month, and we’ll get started.

If things are hard, you’re not failing…

Posted on 10 January 2023

Last year was an exciting year for many of my clients. I witnessed amazing manifestations and dreams come true — promotions, raises and new jobs, big moves across the country, joy returning, projects coming to fruition, even a wedding!

Regular sessions accelerated and supported that growth.

I also witnessed some of my clients walking through the hardest year of their life. Dark nights of the soul and dark times of crisis take us to our knees. I had more clients in that position than ever before and held space for the deep inner work that challenging times demand.

Regular sessions kept those clients steady in intention and anchored in spirit.

We all walk through different seasons at different times.

Being in a tougher season is not a reflection of failure. The cycles of creation take us on a journey – naturally.

What season you are in?

Some years restlessness arises.

What we have is good, and maybe even exactly what we’ve worked to create, but we feel stirrings of discontent and a desire for change. Something inside of us is prompting us to reach and grow again. This is exciting, if you recognize what’s happening.

Some years are breakdown years.

What we thought was solid shifts and changes beneath us. Sometimes it’s internal – our ego dissolving, grief arising, healing happening through it all. Sometimes it’s outer circumstances of loss that break us free from solid structures so we again grow. This is also exciting, if we remember the old is dissolving so something new can be born.

Other years are years of new growth. We manifest and create, align and expand again.

And still other years are years of mastery and maturity, in which we deepen our roots and cultivate our wisdom.

Whatever season you find yourself in, here’s what I want for you this year:

I want you to be present to what is in front of you, but I also want you to maintain a higher perspective on what is unfolding in your experience.

I want you to feel all the human feelings that come up, while also choosing and cultivating your emotional and energetic states intentionally.

I want you to remember how much choice you have in your life, and I want you to be able to surrender to the mystery and feel ease with all that is outside of your control.

I want you to give yourself the space to be imperfectly human, while rooting in your inner wisdom and letting it guide you.

As a life coach, this is what I’m committed to.

No matter the season, you can walk through your life with consciousness and intention. When you do, the journey may not be easy, but you’ll feel ease and your manifestations will amaze you.

Do you choose that?

This year, book regular coaching sessions — once a quarter, once a month or once a season — as part of that choice. Make a plan and set yourself up for consistent support to stay awake and aligned.

A few holiday reminders…

Posted on 23 December 2022

In this holiday season, here are a few reminders…

It’s not about the stuff. It’s about your presence and the connection that it creates.

If it’s not fun for you, there’s another way. Change it.

When you feel pressure or heightened intensity, slow down. Take a pause and a breath.

Your intention matters.

The way you show up matters.

A myriad of other little things don’t matter so much.

Can you be with your family, and love and connect with them, while still being in your body caring for yourself?

Can you witness other people’s experience, and let them have their experience, and not abandon yourself?

Can you stay grounded and clear in what matters most to you, despite the flurry of activity or expectations around you?

Whether you are traveling or staying cozy at home, with family or friends or alone, be soft with yourself.

It’s enough to be here being you.

Joy arises in receiving things just as they are.

I wish you that.

P.S. The year has been a lot. Perhaps you have much to celebrate, or much to grieve, or much to marvel at… do you need some space for that?

Next week, I’ve have a few more Year-End Review sessions available for the special holiday price of $111. These are for next week only. Space is limited.

Or join Renewal: an online year end retreat for reflection and visioning before you step into 2023. There are 5 possible session to attend. Come to all or just a few. You set your price and level of participation. Create it to suit you.

Renewal: an online end of year retreat

Posted on 19 December 2022

In the last dark days of the year, I like to sink in and get reflective.

What has this last year been for me?
Where am I now?
Who am I now?
What lies ahead?

I don’t like to start a new year without having given myself this space and rooted myself in a vision for the next year.

Somehow in the darkest days, I can receive the deepest knowings, and setting myself up for the next year with a clear intention is important.

If you’re like me in valuing this kind of reflection as you wrap up your year, then I invite you to join in Renewal: an online year end retreat.

Each of these 5 online sessions is one hour, and includes meditation, guided journaling, and deeply held space in which to focus and reflect.

Reflect and Review – Monday, December 26, at 7pm Pacific
Turn it all to Gold – Wednesday, December 28, at 7pm Pacific
Gaze Forward – Thursday, December 29, at 7pm Pacific
Align with the Next – Friday, December 30, at 12pm Pacific
Release and Celebrate – Saturday, December 31, at 10am Pacific

Join live or catch the replays. Attend all sessions, one session, or a few.
And, pay what you choose – $25, $50, $75, or $100.

All levels of offering and participation are welcome.
