You + me, let’s manifest some stuff

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. It is not philosophy. It is physics.”

-- Albert Einstein

Everyday life can make it easy to forget that we’re all bundles of energy attracting like-energy and creating our own reality.

Look around you right now… everything you see is energy.

Your body is energy.

Money is energy.

Your thoughts are energy.

Which means that what you think, and how you feelattracts like energy and shapes your life.

That’s the just law of attraction.

It’s not philosophy, it’s physics. And it doesn’t favor one person over another.

You can’t ‘get good at the law of attraction’ anymore than you can get good at gravity.

But you can focus your thoughts and attention to attract what you want -- whether that’s a stronger body, more money, or a new relationship -- with more ease rather than effort.  

It happens when your thoughts and feelings produce an energy that matches the energy of what you want.

That’s when things fall in your lap and you appear to be a manifesting machine.

Easy, right?

HA! Sorta…

The challenge is that our brains are wired for survival and constantly scan for potential threat.

Then, most of us have been conditioned to avoid potential threat by working hard, and thinking of ways to protect or defend.

Then we get stressed.

And overwhelmed.

And challenges appear, or our health goes south, and attracting seems impossible.

But, it’s not impossible.


You really can attract exactly what you want without struggle.

It just takes practice.

With practice you can recondition yourself to look for what you want, rather than what you don’t.

You can also rewire your brain so that thinking better thoughts becomes easier.

And then, attracting what you want into your life feels kinda like magic.  


Let’s get the attraction ball rolling with a short + simple law of attraction exercise.

Here’s what you do:

Write down 10 things that are going really well for you right now. If you easily make it to 10, then go for 30 or more. 

Do this daily for ONE WEEK and notice if you feel any differently and/or if you attract something wanted into your life.  

That’s it! 

It’s so simple that many people don’t bother to do it(!) and then miss out on the benefits of the practice and the momentum it builds (especially when you keep going after one week).

Remember, it’s physics, so experiment with it!

You may not become a manifesting machine overnight, or even within a week, but with practice it’ll feel easier and easier to attract what you want.

It might even feel like magic.

How to make the Holidays YOUR WAY

Do you ever feel like the holidays become a tangled mess of to-dos, busyness, trying to please people and meet expectations?

If things aren’t going well, the holidays seem to be there to amplify it.  

Then, January rolls around with the promise of a new start.

It doesn’t have to be this way any time of the year!

You can make this month what YOU want.

No matter how bad things are right now.

Yes, even if your marriage is rocky.

Or, money is super tight.

Or, you *know* people will be really disappointed if you change anything.

There is a way to make it easier and more peaceful.

It’s starts with setting your intention.

This means knowing what you really want, how you want to feel, and how you want to show up.

Think of your intention like a steering wheel being able to point you in the direction you want to go. The focused attention you give your intention is like the gas pedal.

Let’s play with this together.

Grab a pen and a piece of paper and we’ll do a simple intention setting practice.

Step 1:

Think of something you’re planning on doing. This could be going out to dinner, buying something, or even the whole day ahead. Write it down.

Step 2:

Ask yourself, “What’s my intention behind this (action, day)?” Write what comes to you.

Step 3:

Check-in to how it feels. Do you want to keep this intention as is? Or re-write it? It might take several rewrites, but find an intention that feels good to you.

Step 4:

Stay focused on your intention. Keep your written intention in your pocket when you can grab and look at it any time. If things go sideways (which we know they might), read your intention. Say it out loud.

But, here’s the real kicker that’s easy to forget during the holidays:

You only have control over your intention.

You DON’T HAVE CONTROL over how OTHER PEOPLE feel, how they react to you, what they do, or what they choose.

If that creeps in, go back to investigating your intention.  

That’s where magic happens.

And you find ease, peace and joy within you.

DO THIS if you fear disappointment

“Be kind to one another.” -- Ellen Degeneres


It has always seemed obvious to me what Ellen was saying with these words: Be kind to your fellow man.

Until, one afternoon when I heard it differently.

It had been a day where self-doubt and pressure crept in and my mind spun with thoughts like . . .   

“Ugh. This didn’t get this done!"

And, “What if this doesn’t happen?”


I flipped on Ellen in hopes of laughing and tuning out the mind spin.

And, then, something weird happened.

It was as if Ellen reached through the TV, grabbed me by the shoulders, looked me dead in the eye and said, “Be kind to one another."

Wait.

Am I being KIND to ME?

Self-kindness can feel easy for any of us to forget sometimes.

Especially if there’s something you really want and you’re afraid of it not happening.

Even some of the world’s most successful people have moments of doubt and fearing disappointment.

Ellen is about to release her first stand-up special in 15 years. Do you think she hasn’t had a single moment of fear or doubt?

She has.

So, what does she do?

What do WE do when doubt or fear creeps in?

BE KIND.

Gather up all of the love and kindness that you can find in yourself and in the Universe and turn it to YOU.

Imagine HAVING YOUR OWN BACK.

Tell yourself everything is gonna be alright.

Notice fear and meet it with LOVE.

Feel disappointment and write yourself notes of kindness.

Speak words of ENCOURAGEMENT over criticism.

Tell yourself that you’re doing your best, and that’s AMAZING.

Practice KINDNESS.

And as you’re reading this, imagine me reaching through your screen, grabbing you by your shoulders, looking you dead in the eye and reminding you, Be kind to one another.

Big hugs to you,
XO

PS: Self-Compassion is one of The Nine Elements of Unstoppable Ease that I’m teaching in my January masterclass, Unstoppable Ease.

It’s gonna be a small group with lots of hands-on coaching, connection and support with practices like self-kindness. I’d love for you to join us, which you can do right here

Becoming YOU

“You should never view your challenges as a disadvantage. Instead, it’s important for you to understand that your experience facing and overcoming adversity is actually one of your biggest advantages.” -- Michelle Obama

Growing up, people didn’t expect much from Michelle Robinson.

As a black girl from a working-class family living in the South Side of Chicago, people were ready to put her in a box of underachievement.

People in her neighborhood didn’t expect that she would graduate from Princeton and Harvard.

Or become a lawyer.

Or the 44th First Lady.

But she did.

How'd she do it?

She didn't believe that she was defined by her circumstances.

Or, by how other people saw her.

She didn’t believe in the box.

This is a mindset.

And Michelle Obama as a powerful one.

She has a mindset driven by hope.

That sees challenges as opportunities.

That says, “When they go low, we go high!”

MINDSET.

Your mindset is equally as powerful.

You can turn every challenge into opportunity.

You can do what, right now, seems like only a dream.

You can find your way.

Because you are still becoming.

You are becoming EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

And the possibilities for you are limitless.

Focus your mindset on believing that anything is possible for you.

When you do, you BECOME limitless.

When it feels like all hustle and no play

Shonda Rhimes is a titan. 

As a writer and executive producer, she's been responsible for creating 70 hours of television programing per season, creating hundreds of jobs, and generating $350 million dollars per season.

How does she do it? 

The hum. 

The hum, as she says, is hitting the high note, finishing the marathon and being Beyoncé all in one. The hum is God's whisper in her ear. 

And then, the hum stopped. 

She was burned out. Overworked. Run dry. 

The hum seemed broken. 

Inside, it was silent. 

Hundreds of jobs, 70 hours of programing, $350 million on the line and. . . silence

And then her toddler asked her a question, "Mama, will you play with me?"  She was already late to an event and about to say no, but then... this time... she said yes. 

She stopped and played. Between reading books, being silly, and making her daughters laugh she started to hear a faint hum. Not the hum, but a hum. 

What is the hum? 

It's love. 

It's joy. 

It's peace and confidence and the feeling of being fully alive. 

That's what Shonda Rhimes calls the hum. 

That's what I call EASE. 

But, you don't have to be a titan to experience the hum. 

We all have access to this space where things come together and world feels like magic. 

It starts by finding your way to what you love. 

Your way to joy. 

Your way to hearing God's whisper in your ear. 

Your life's hum. 

That's when life begins to feel like magic and ease and excitement. 

That's when you feel unstoppable and alive. 

Wanna find your hum? 

You can, and I'll show you how in my upcoming masterclass, Unstoppable Ease

In this 10-week masterclass you'll learn The Nine Elements to Unstoppable Ease and discover your way to ease, confidence and joy. 

It's a whole new way of living and it all starts January, 2019.

You can register right here to get your seat, and find your way to joy, your way to what you love, and your way to hearing God's whisper in your ear. 

Let's find your hum.
