Have you wanted to take the leap of faith and move forward with your life, career or relationships but fear is holding you back? I felt the same exact way. We have all been in the position of fear and taking the risk, why, because we are afraid of failure. I have worked with so many people like myself that are afraid of both failure and even afraid of success.
“Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
I grew up in a family of successful people. Both of my parents achieved amazing things in their lives and they are still doing it as we speak. One of the many things I have learned through them is that you must always keep going even if you fail. Failure is just another stepping stone to achieve education and experience in your life. I promise even the greats have failed.
“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.”
Taking the risk can lead to amazing opportunities and they come to us all the time. That is the beauty of trusting the universe. Opportunities will rise but it up to us to take them, always look for the opportunity in something. Last night a friend of mine asked me to pull a card for her from my Oracle deck, she wanted to have guidance and focus during her full moon ceremony. The card that I pulled was "Risk", a card of moving forward and choosing a path. It is one of the best cards I have ever pulled for her, why, because it was also good for me too.
I need to remind myself of my goals and dreams just like everyone else. It is this reason that I decided to write this blog and tell you all of my progress. I am just like you, I am looking for a better future. It is my dream to help women succeed and live out their dreams. So the most important thing is for me to do that for myself. I have received an amazing opportunity and I am continuing to receive amazing blessings left and right.
The reason I am coming up front and center in telling you these things is because I do not like to bs anyone, and want to lead by example. I want to be living proof that you can achieve anything when you set your mind to it. I want you to be there every step of the way from just starting out, to publishing my books and even one day being on TV. That is a risk I am taking today, being honest and keeping it real. I recently took the leap to dive fully into my career and I am receiving amazing gifts from the universe. I just keep saying, "I am a magnet for opportunities and I continuously receive blessings from the universe."
So in conclusion I want to remind you that you don't have to stay stuck in your life, make plans and take that leap of faith and always remember I am here for you. Together we can do incredible things, I promise you that. Stay tuned for more blogs on the horizon and even more exciting news. Stay focused and stay grateful. You too can achieve greatness!
Happy Autumn Equinox
Today marks the start of fall, nice weather, beautiful colors, spices and my personal fave fuzzy boots. Each fall brings new wishes, dreams and destinies across its breezes and it is one of my favorite times of the year. I always feel as if new beginnings come to us during this time. As the weather cools down we prepare our home for the coming winter months.
Fall isn't just about cool weather and pumpkin spice flavors, fall is a time to renew. It is a great time to get ready to shift your life into high gear and plan. get outside and enjoy the colors, the weather and gather inspiration for projects. Gather energy from the world around you, see all the beauty that lays in the world. This is a perfect time to reflect on your own powers and vibrate even higher. Use this time to give yourself, your space and your goals a fall haul. A fall hall is super similar to a Spring clean with less pollen. Get rid of the old, that which does not serve you and toxic relationships. Then settle down with a good book and a cup of tea and enjoy fall.

Your Chakra System
Chakra, or wheel, is an energy center in our body which energy flows and is continuously spinning. The Chakras connect our physical body to our energetic body. When the Chakras are balanced and free flowing of energy, we feel energetic, positive, happy and enriched. When are Chakras are blocked, we become, sluggish, sick and negative.
It is important to learn about your Chakras and how they relate within us. Each center has a specific purpose for our energetic and physical wellbeing. Through the Chakra system we can create health, emotional stability, and even spiritual bliss. The chart above shows the seven Chakras and were they are located.
I first became aware of the Chakra system when I was introduced to yoga. It became clear to me after just a few sessions that there was something to creating a healthy energy flow throughout my body. By now I am able to know when one of my Chakras is out of line and with the help of Reiki ( Energy healing) I am able to help unblock them.
Each Chakra has an important role to play but together they create the rainbow of life. I put together a helpful chart of your Chakra system, key words and descriptions to help you in your pursuit of balance.
Root Chakra- Red: Base of Spine:
Sacral Chakra- Orange: Below the Belly button:
Solar Plexus- Yellow: Above the Belly Button:
Heart Chakra- Green: Center of Chest:
Throat Chakra- Light Blue: Throat:
Third Eye Chakra- Indigo: Forehead:
Crown Chakra- Violet: Top of the head:
Each center has an integral function in creating our energetic balance. It is through the study of our energetic and physical being that we can create health, emotional stability and spiritual bliss. In order for us to become fully self-realized and in harmony with our physical and spiritual nature our denser lower energies need to be harmonized with the lighter energies of the upper centers.
