How Important is Setting Your Intention?


The one thing that I have learned this week is to pay attention to synchronicities.  

I think of a synchronicity as a coincidence, or coordination of events. 

I also know to start paying attention to things when they happen more than once!  So, this week the word "intentions" was coming up all over the place.


It was in my conversations when I was talking to friends and family, my accountability buddies, and even on the online radio shows and some videos that I was listening to.


If that isn't a sign....I don't know what is!


What I took away from this showing up in my life more than once, is that, setting an intention is one of the most powerful things that we can do.


You are working with the Universe to co-create your reality!  By setting your intention you are really giving yourself back the power of how you want situations, circumstances, and things to go.


I set my intention for the day, when I wake up.  What I am going to set into more practice, is setting an intention for projects and tasks that I am doing in my life.  Also when things don't "feel" so good for me, I will be setting my intention.


It is most powerful to set an intention with these two components.  How you want to feel and what you want to experience!  


Today I intend to feel energized and confident that I can clean up the kitchen and complete a few business tasks with ease!  


What are your intentions for the day or maybe for a particular project or task?  I invite you to set them and watch the magic unfold!  Please share below so I can hold your intention for you and seeing it the way you want!


Have a magical day!

How Can I Set the Foundation to an Abundant Life?



To be quite honest, an abundant life really starts from within.  That's right, it starts with you!  You are the vehicle or vessel of what you bring into your life.  

Take some time to really think about that.  Look around at your life.  Do you have what you want?  Are you always trying to work harder?  Do things come to you naturally or does it take you a long time to get what you want?

You are sending out a higher vibration of energy when things come to you easily.  You are feeling joyful, excited and full of love and gratitude most of of the time.  I call these the high energy vibrations.

If you feel stuck or having a hard time with manifesting what you want, then you are most likely in a place of lack, frustration, struggle and maybe even feeling a bit depressed.  I call these emotions and feelings the low level vibrations.   

I do have to say that the more and more that I tap into the Universal Laws and Energy Work I am so amazed by this wondrous power.     

Life doesn't have to be hard.  You don't need to work, work, work to figure things out.  The most important tool is to align your energy to a higher vibration to get what you want.

The key to creating an abundant life really beings with you and how you take care of yourself! 

How are you treating your body?

Are You Pushing to Make Something Happen?


How many times have you pushed and pushed to try and make something work?  Maybe you feel under pressure to make a certain outcome happen so you end up doing something that you wish you could take back?  

Have you ever felt as if you were just keep banging your head against the wall, because what you are trying to make happen just isn't happening or working out the way that you wanted it too.

Of course, you are not alone.  I had been there so many times and I know that many other people have experienced the same thing.  I finally figured out the key to ALLOWING!


Growing up, I think a lot of us are taught that we need to use our heads and just "figure things out".  For so many years I followed this process and it just made me even more frustrated.  Deep down inside I felt as if there was a better way to make things happen.


For the past 3 years I am diving into my own spirituality and my intuition.  Along my journey I have learned and realize that all the answers that we need are right in front of us and among us!  We just need to open ourselves up and ALLOW ourselves to be aware of them.


This week I have had some personal/business breakthroughs.  It wasn't until I let go....I mean fully let go of what I was trying so hard to figure out that I started to get some thoughts and ideas that just felt so wonderful!

I want to give you some tips on how you can 'let go and ALLOW in' more of what you want.


  • Get clear and specific on the questions you are asking - this one is very hard for many people.  They are usually all over the place and don't really know what it is that they want. 

  • Ask your questions and let it float into the Universe - you need to let it go, stop worrying about it, complaining about it or getting frustrated.  This keeps you in a place of resistance and in fact brings you more worry, complaining and frustration.  Let it go!

  • Find something FUN to do - read a book, watch your favorite television show, hang out with friends, go surfing or snowboarding.  Do something that gets your mind off your question.

  • Be aware - notice your thoughts, feelings, things that are happening around you.  These are all synchronicities that will lead you to your answer!

  • Keep a journal - write it down!  All of it, your question, observations, synchronicities!  Then review it.  This will help you to get clear on your answer or the next direction you need to take to answer your question!
This process works!  You just need to have confidence and trust in your ability to let things go so that you can ALLOW more of what you want in!

I do want to hear from you!  Please feel free to leave your comments and questions below!  Do you use this process and if so, how has it helped you?  If you haven't use this, do you think you will give it a try?

How To Get Hit By A Wave of Clarity!



Have you ever felt so stuck when trying to do something and you just can't get any clarity to move you forward? 


Or even felt as if you were trying to make other people happy following what they had told you because they said, "it was the best for you?"


Both of these challenges were happening for me and I didn't realize that they were so linked together.  I was trying so hard to put together a project that I was working on with someone else but it wasn't working out.  It felt good and exciting at first and as time passed, I just couldn't see how I could actually help people reach their goals with the plan that we created together.


Instead of re-designing the plan, I was so focused on how to make "that plan" happen.  Keep in mind, no one was even interested in this plan.  I put it out there, shared it with people and their simply was NO interest.


Of course, I was also having a hard time telling this person who helped me that I just couldn't see the vision anymore.  It really didn't serve who I am here to help.


But then all of the sudden I got clarity again!


This clarity happened as an expense and end to a friendship, which wasn't initiated by me.


I was really taken back by the impact of this choice.  I couldn't believe that a friendship would be cut off and ended because I didn't see "it" in the same way.  As I look back on it, the Universe delivers and I am always amazed and surprised in the way it comes.


Once this challenge was out of my way, the clarity was unbelievable.  I instantly saw how I could move things around in the program and really give my clients a system that will help them reach their goals.  I am in the process of putting it together but it is so simply amazing!


The point to all of this is sometimes we need to clear out areas and even people in our life that are just holding us back by standing up for what you feel is in our best interest.


It may be hard and difficult to do or you can do what I did and not respond and let the Universe take care of it for you!


If you have been challenged by something and got through it, I would love to hear about it!  Leave your comments below!

Do you have a TEAM to move you forward?



For the past week I have been getting some intuitive hits.  For me it's a knowing or realization of something that comes to me.  It feels like an ah-ha moment or a light bulb going off in my head and I am saying to myself, "yes! That is so right!"


What came to me was how important team work and a TEAM is, in creating an abundant future especially through business.  I have to be quite honest, to create the healthy abundant future that you are looking for you need to team up, help each other to reach goals and also to leverage yourself.  


When I think of team,  team work and how this relates to the ocean, the dolphins and whales come to mind.  

I do have to say that what you put your attention on grows!  Because of my attention on team work I came across this great video of a pod of Humpback Whales in the open ocean working together as a team to hunt for food.  Check it out, it is amazing!  you will understand what I mean by team work!




Dolphins are very social animals living together in pods.  They stick together no matter what.  If one is injured or ill they never leave them.  How amazing is that.  One of the most intellectual animals on the planet.  We can clearly learn a lot from them.  


Why is a team so important in building your abundant future?
  • You are not alone 
  • It's a support system of people committed to helping you move through your challenges, as well as you helping others
  • Brainstorm - it's better when you can pool your ideas and bounce idea's off of others
  • Honesty and Trust - they will help you to move past barriers to reach your goals
  • Energy - for a lot of people just being in the energy of people who share the same interests and goals helps you to raise your energetic vibration and to feel even better!
If you aren't helping other people succeed and reach their goals, YOU will never reach yours!  

I can't wait to hear from you, leave your comments down below!  Do you have a team to help you build your abundant future or are you swimming in the ocean all by yourself?  How is it working for you?

An Ocean Beating Gave Me a New Perspective!



I remember this day so clearly.  It was the first time that I went to the North Shore of O'ahu with some friends.  We are were on a break from college and decided to fly from the Big Island to O'ahu.  The ocean was very calm but the land slopped so much into the ocean that it caused the waves to be pretty big and just pound the shoreline.   


In order to get out to the ocean and into the calmness, we needed to make it past the "beating" on the beach.


I loved the ocean so much but at this time I hadn't had much experience with it. I grew up in Colorado, land locked all my life except for two summer vacations with my family to Bonaire, which is located 50 miles North of Venezuela.  My experience with Bonaire had gentle waves and a calm ocean.


So, I looked at the waves just beating down on the beach and took a deep breath, ran down the slope and right it to the wave.  Oh my goodness, I felt as if I was in a washing machine.  I did a few somersaults, feeling as if I was being mixed in with the sand.  All I was thinking about at the time was, I hope that now one is watching me.  


So the ocean receded and I was on the beach, luckily my suit was still intact but I had sand everywhere!  So I got up and immediately and DID THE SAME THING!  Not thinking, or connected to my guidance, I just picked myself up and ran back into the ocean.  There it was again, I was in the spinning cycle of the washing machine.  


OH MY GOODNESS.  It wasn't until my 3rd attempt that I realized that I had to take a time out, and actually TIME the waves!  You might be thinking what does that mean?  


OK, as the waves come in, they beat on the shore then there is a few seconds where it is somewhat calm and the water recedes back.  It is in that calmness when I should be making my way into the ocean.


NOT when the waves are pounding so hard on the beach and putting me in the spin cycle.  
----- I do want you to know that as I am writing this I am really laughing at myself.  Looking back on it, it truly was funny! =) 


The reason I am sharing this with you is because I am sure there have been times in your life that you have done something that hasn't worked and you keep going back and doing it again and again and again the same way.  You are pretty much going through what I just talked about, a beat down from the ocean.  


All you need to do it step back from what your doing, take a breather and re-examine it.  Maybe from a different perspective or pulling someone from the outside will help you to get some insight on how you can make your situation work.


If we don't step away from something that isn't working and re-examine it, then we usually give up, call ourselves a failure or call the situation a failure.  


Nothing is a failure but a challenge to get you to open up to something new!  I hope this helps you to get a good laugh but also be able to re-examine any situation that isn't working for you!

How do you make enough time in the day to do everything that needs to be done?

Today I created a video about a question someone asked me related to creating a healthy lifestyle.

That question was "How do you make enough time in the day to do everything that needs to be done?"

I wanted to share it with you because I feel it is so helpful with creating abundance and helping everyone in general really creating their day, having more time for life, for fun for experiences that really excited and move us to enjoy life.

Here is the video:





Please share any insights, comments or questions you may have below!  I want to hear from you! =)

What are you putting your attention on?

This morning I did my morning meditation.  In fact, I am doing the 21 Meditation Challenge from The Chopra Center.  It's really awesome because they explain different meditation and help you to make this a great practice that you can do everyday. It takes 21 days to create a new habit!

During the mediation today they were taking about attention.  Attention is what you are putting your focus on now, where you direct your energy.  So this morning, I put my attention on "Attention" and it was amazing how much I have really noticed.

I took my son to the park this morning and when I walked out the door, I was so blown away and in awe of how awesome the colors were.  Vibrant oranges, dark green and light green of the trees.  The sky was a calming blue with absolutely NO cloud in the sky.  I felt as if I had stepped into a masterpiece.  It was awesome!

(This is a tree across from my house)
 
As I put my attention on the beauty and appreciation for what I was seeing, I noticed that everything that came my way today was something that I found to appreciate and find the beauty in.  Once you put your attention on something, it will find a way to show up even more in your life.

I want to ask you, what are you putting your attention on?  Is it something that is holding you back from really living your life that you should be living?  Are you paying attention to how nothing ever works for you?  How everything seems to be hard or how you never have enough money?

By putting your attention on something that doesn't feel good, you will find more and more things that aren't going to make you feel good.  What you need to do it change what you are giving your attention to.   Start to look for the beauty in things.  Appreciate what you shows up for you.

When you can make that shift, which may take some time, and please be gentle with yourself, but once you make that shift, you will be amazed at how you can start to attract more of what you want out of life.

Please feel free to share your comments below.  I would love to hear how this article helped you!!

How to Reset your Vibration Instantly!




Many of you know that I am a big fan of Universal Principles.  Especially the Law of Attraction.  For myself, I always knew there was a better, easier way of doing things then from a place of feeling irritated, scared or frightened to make things happen.


Once I found out about the Law of Attraction, I was so excited.  I knew that it you just couldn't sit around on your thinking about how things were going to change......that would make that change.  The secret is to get really clear about what you want, be in the feeling of it and taking inspired action to make it happen.


The other great thing that I have learned is that you will always be lead to the right place, you just need to be open to it.  This all happens by being in the vibes of what you want to attract.


A few weeks ago I was watching this video with Lilou Mace and Michael Losier on how you can Reset your Vibration.


I just love this because I help people RESET their health!  What a great combination!  I hope you enjoy this fantastic video full of some amazing content that you can use NOW!

Alzheimer's Disease Living Close to Home




After coming home from an amazing event for 4 days in Salt Lake City, this past week I have spent with my Grandma and my family.  My Grandma has been living with Alzheimer's Disease for many years now and she is making her transition to the other side.    


Alzheimer's is a brain disease destroying brain cells and causing memory loss and problems.  Alzheimer Association does a great job at explaining the process and what happens.  


This is a hard disease to see someone live through, as I have watched my Grandma from the beginning to the ending stages.  I have to say that my son and I would go visit my Grandma this past month almost everyday and when she was awake, alert and mobile, she would look into my eyes and I just knew that she knew who I was.  I have been so blessed to spend my life knowing her, growing up with her and living life with her.  She is an amazing and wonderful person to have in my life.


The reason why I am sharing this with you is because Alzheimer's is a degenerative disease.  What does that mean?  


Wikipedia defines degenerative disease as the deterioration of tissue and organs over time due to normal body wear or lifestyle choices like exercise and eating habits.


It has been said that 80% of degenerative diseases are preventable by making healthy lifestyle changes.  This includes eating a healthy meals, exercising regularly and giving your body optimal levels of high quality nutritional supplements.


Mostly recently Vitamin D has shown some amazing health benefits.  Don't just take my word from it.  Dr. Wentz talked about it recently at the live event I attended but he also wrote about it on his blog.  Read about how important Vitamin D is an it's role it plays in helping improve your health...click here


I think that in any situation we are in, it is a learning one and I have learned so much from my Grandma.  Who she is and especially what she is dealing with as she lives with Alzheimer's.  The most important part of the situation is what are you going to do about it?  


I hope to educate and help others live strong healthy lives for many, many years through my life's experiences.  I know my Grandma's time is almost over but there are many out there who aren't!  I can't stress enough how important taking care of your health really is.  


I want to leave you with Dr. Wentz's words, "We live to short and die to long."   


Let's turn it around so that we live long healthy lives and when it's time to go we just go!

What an amazing 4 Days!

I am still basking in the energy of the USANA International Convention.  What an amazing 4 days I had along with my husband.

The part that I loved the most was connecting with my Social Media buddies!  I have been on social media for a few years and have made some amazing great connections with people.  My first stop on our trip was of course to visit the Social Media Department.

I first ran into Lisa, who is amazing and then Tim showed up.  Those two do an amazing job!  To be in there presence was remarkable!  Here is a picture of all of us!  I also received an amazing Social Media Gift Bag....it pays to connect on Social Media.  Thank you!


Even as I am writing this I am so amazed by how a friendship can develop through social media.  

I also ran into a few other awesome social media buddies Joe Katchka, Jacob Palmer and Allan Fiji.  I highly suggest following them!  They ROCK!  There were many more that I didn't get change to run into but I know that I can still connect with them online!

That following day they had the USANAFest, which was a great time...line dancing =) and listening to some awesome music!  There is aways great fun when you are in the company of The Free Radicals, Dr. Denis Waitley, Dave Wentz and David Osmond!




The next 3 days were full of amazing speakers, teachers, content and announcements!  To be in the energy of the "Best Live Event in America" is truly amazing.  The theme was Breaking Through and being there I knew that I was ready to Break Through and walk away from any fear, worries or doubt that may try to creep back into our lives ever so often.  

There were some amazing and inspirational speakers that took the stage and the one I always love hearing from is Dr. Myron Wentz.  What an amazing, talented, giving person.  I also love the skits they do...if you aren't having fun then what are you doing?


Thank you USANA for all that you do!  I feel so blessed to be a part of such an amazing company!

I had such an amazing, incredible time!  The excited and enthusiasm is still with me and I have bottled it up to keep me going throughout the year.  One thing that I have learned and implemented from this event was action steps.  I came to such an amazing place to learn and grow as a person but also to learn and grow my business but it won't do me any good if I don't implement what I had learned.  

For most people, they go to events and leave......never setting any action steps into place.  This year before I left, I think it was around the 3rd day...I had a plan!  I knew what I wanted to do and how I am going to do it!  Plus I have my accountability partner helping me every step of the way along with a strong team!  
  



With that said, I am ready to celebrate many break throughs this year!  How about you?  Are you ready to Break Through?

Do you have an accountability partner for your business?


An accountability partner is exactly how it sounds, a partner to hold you accountable.  They are ideal to have if you are starting a business, feeling stuck or you want to take your business to the next level.

Sometimes we just need that extra push to move us forward.  I know I do.  Especially when it comes to working from home.  I can get caught up with housework, my son, dishes (not that I want too!) but other things seem to take over, and business can sometimes get pushed to the side.

About a month ago, I was approached by a good friend.  She asked me if I would like to be an accountability partner to her.  I have to back up a bit, that day....to be exact, a friend on Facebook was talking about how she has an accountability partner and it really was helping her.  I thought to myself, what a great idea.  I would love to have one!

So, I asked, felt very good about it and the Universe delivered, in the way of my friend.  When she asked me, I of course said, "YES!"

We talk Monday, Wednesday & Friday in the morning so that we can set our days up for success by sharing goals and progress.  We have been doing this for a month now and it really has been working wonderfully.

What I love about having my partner is that when I feel stuck on something, we can talk it out.  I may have been only looking at the situation one way and she has been able to help me by giving me some different view points.

The other thing that has really worked so well is that we know that we are going to be talking to each other so we KNOW that we need to do something!  Our mind is on business but we are having a lot of fun with this and things don't seem so "hard" anymore.
 
I highly suggest and recommend getting yourself an accountability partner to help you grow and build your successful business!


*I would love to hear from you by leaving a comment below!  Let me know your accountability is helping you or not helping you!

Are you breaking through?



This year has been an incredible year so far!  Not only for myself but for the whole world.  I think that in so many areas we (as human beings) have realized that we need to start doing things to move us to feeling better, living better and appreciating each other and our planet. 

It really has been about Breaking Through (the theme for the USANA International Convention - which is only 11 days away today!)

For myself, this has been a powerful year of self-discovery.  I am finally opening myself up to who I truly am and embracing that power.  I have to be quite honest with you, I allowed others to live my life, by making decisions based on what would make other people happy.  

This has been a big break through for me and in doing that I have realized that I have had a lot of beliefs holding me back from really becoming what I have wanted, who I truly am.  Through this uncovering of beliefs that no longer serve me, I have been able to change them into something that feels good, that is me, that is what I believe now!  In doing that, I have unlocked many doors of possibility to myself.

I want to ask you, "Are you breaking through?"  If you are, I want to congratulate you!  Whoohoo!  I would love to hear about it too.  

If your not, maybe your reading this because you are looking for your break through.  If you are looking, you don't have to look very far because it is inside of you.  You are the break through!  You are the only person that can hold you back from this by keeping you in a place of lack, worry, frustration, anger, whatever place that is for you.  

OR

You can choose to break through to your true potential, living the life that you know that you want, doing the things that excite you and bring you joy.  It's out there....waiting for you!  

All you have to do is make the decision today, draw the line in the sand, that Today is the Day for your break through and open your heart to yourself.  

Ask yourself, "What is it that is holding me back from doing what I truly want to do?"  

When you can on cover that ask "WHY".  

Really get to the heart of the challenge.  Then you will need to make a change.  Once you can make that change I am certain you will be making your break through.  

Please share by writing a comment below!  I would love to hear your break through so far this year and help CELEBRATE them with you.  I would also like to hear if your looking for it so we all can help support you!

How Important is it to FEEL Your Way To What You Want?



I have been reading the book Money, and the Law of Attraction by Esther & Jerry Hicks.  I got introduced to the Law of Attraction when the movie The Secret came out and not long after that, I was introduced to Abraham-Hicks from a friend.  I have to say, since then my world has completely changed.

In the back of the book they have a CD.  I decided to listen to it because I have the day to myself.  Wednesday is the day where my son goes over to his grandma's house so that I have a full day to work.  I am on conference calls, planning, implementing and allowing business to happen.

I do have to say that I love Wednesdays!

Anyways, I was reminded from the CD that the most important thing you can do to move you into the direction you want to go is to be take a look at how you are FEELING in the moment.   

When you are excited and having fun, you are in alignment with what you want.  Let's look at it in your situation.

What is it that you really want?  OK.  How are you feeling about it?  Does that thought of it make you feel excited and happy?  If so, you are moving towards it and everything that needs to fall into place for you to reach it is lining up.

What if you have this pit in your stomach and you feel uncomfortable?  Maybe you are feeling frustrated or even worried about what it is that you want.

When you are having those feelings that don't feel good to you then you can be sure that you aren't not aligning up with what you want.

I used to think that I needed to do whatever it was possible to make things happen.  What did that bring me?  Frustration, worry and even a little anger because what I wanted, wasn't showing up, no matter how hard I worked for it.  

It wasn't until I let go of the "always trying to do whatever it was possible to make things happen" syndrome that I grew up with, that I started to feel better.  Once I started to feel better, I noticed things would start to fall into place.  People would show up that would help me, conversations would happen that gave me the guidance I needed to move into the right direction.

I have to say that it took me a while to understand this and I am still learning!  Sometimes I will find myself pushing against what I want only to realize that I need to back off and FEEL better about it!  

Once you can do that, you are opening yourself up for greatness to occur!

Today, take the time to acknowledge how your are FEELING!  Don't you want to feel happy and enjoy life?  Well you should!  So what are you waiting for!  Start NOW to feel a little bit better!

Are Company Events Even Important To Go To When Building a Home Business?



If you are thinking of starting a home based business, one thing you might have heard throughout your introduction to the company, is that it is very important to go to company events, one in particular being Convention.

In the back of your mind, you might be saying, OK, that's great but I will see when the time comes. Maybe even cost and expenses enter your mind. I know, I used to tell myself those stories too.

Until I went to my first USANA Convention. It was amazing!

What are the benefits of attending your home based business Companies Convention?
(I am speaking from my experience.)

- Product knowledge. Every year we get to have some amazing trainings that pertain to certain products within the company as well as hearing about some amazing new products first hand and to get training on them too.

- Company knowledge. I have been reminded year after year how wonderful our company is and how it works. It is even better if you are able to visit and tour the company!

- Networking. I just love the fact that you get to meet face to face with wonderful people who run the operations part of the company but also work in the field. This is my favorite part because you get to connected with people who are at different stages in their business but you also get to network with the guys and ladies who work in the corporate office. Personally, since building my business through social media, I have made a lot of great friendships and this is the time to stop by and say hi, face to face!

- Self development. This is so important. Each year that I attend I am able to push myself to new limits. I uncover what maybe holding me back in certain areas and I learn how to move past them.

- Business training. No matter where you may be in your business, starting out or having been in business for years, you can always benefit from business training. How to be successful in the field, how to build a great team, how to move you forward and turn your business up a notch.

Whatever you need, you will find it at Convention!  Guaranteed.  

I have to say if you are still questioning whether this is the right next step for you, especially if it is to Attend the USANA International Convention, then this is the event YOU will WANT to attend!

So, to answer the question "Are company event even important to go to when building a home business" my answer is YES! You don't want to miss it!

You and your business will succeed and reach new levels when you attend events like Convention. Don't hesitate, get yourself and your business there!

Are you really living a fulfilled life?

Can you honestly say that you are living your life that way you have always imagined it?  Are you doing what you always thought you would be doing?

I think there might just be a handful of people that can actually say YES to those questions.

Many people wake up each day, drained, working way to much and really hating what they do.  Are you one that falls into those categories?

I was really one of those people!  Without a doubt!  When the alarm hit I always felt "sick to my stomach" and I did not want to get out of bed to go to a job that I really hated.  I felt like this for years.  Until I got pregnant!  You are probably thinking, OK so I have to get pregnant to enjoy life....well maybe...but NO!  Getting pregnant really opened my eyes to the way that I was living my life.

By bringing a baby into the world, I wanted to share with him that he can BE, DO, and HAVE anything in his life! So if I wanted to share that with him, shouldn't I be living that kind of life?  I always say, practice what you preach.

Of course!  That is really when I started to look deep down inside and do so some soul searching.  What was it that I really loved to do and how could I really do that?

Many of us have been taken down a path that had lead us to something that isn't quite what we imagined for ourselves.  If your on that path, I invite you to do some soul searching for yourself.  Ask yourself,  "What lead me to this point?  What stories are going on inside, that I am telling myself, that is keeping me from truly enjoying life?"

This may take some time to ponder....but really give yourself that time.  The more that I work with clients and even myself, the more I realize that we are here on this Earth to enjoy it but to also live our our Life's Purpose. For each and every person, that will be something different.  But if you aren't happy and enjoying life, then you are probably not doing what you have come here to do.

Think about what would you rather be doing?

I am giving you permission to IMAGINE!

Image your life the way you truly want to live.  Then ask yourself. "What can I do today to move myself forward to living my life with joy and happiness?"

What brings me joy and happiness is being my family, waking up every morning to take care of my son and enjoy the sunrise, helping people with health, the ocean, and doing yoga!  That is what I LOVE to do!

Here is a great video that I think you will enjoy!  The song is very catching and has a great message! =)

PLEASE REMEMBER:  It is never to late to do what makes you happy, sometimes you just need some support and guidance to get you going!  There is always someone around to help support you and guide you in the right direction!




I would truly love to hear from you and to know that you are living a fulfilled life!  If not, what would you like to be doing to move you to that place?  I looking forward to connecting with you all!

My Prosperity Journey!

If you have been up to date with my last few blogs I have started doing the 40 day Prosperity Plan from The Abundance Book by Jonathon Randolph Price.

Today is Day 15 and it is going amazing!  I have got some great insight over these past few days.

Many people grow up with the belief that money isn't something that you have, it doesn't come easy or that you have to work REALLY, REALLY hard at it.

One thing I have learned is that whatever your beliefs maybe around money, they can be changed.  However, it does take time and work to change them.

That is what I really love about the 40 day plan!  You are learning how to change your beliefs around money.  Money isn't an object.  Money is not your supply.  It really is energy.  Many of us feel that money is what we need, money is everything.

In actuality, we need love, joy and happiness.  When we can reach that state of abundance within ourselves, then everything else will fall into place.

Take a look at your life now.  What is showing up for you on the outside.  Whatever that is, is a reflection of what is going on inside.  If you feel stuck, lost, having a hard time getting what you really want, then you need to change what you are telling yourself.  You need to change your beliefs about prosperity.  You need to start living your life with love and joy.

As you move into love and joy, you are moving into alignment with what you want.  Synchronicities will start to show up for you and move you and it will feel absolutely amazing how everything falls right into place.

Just remember, it takes work on your part to feel good.  The wonderful thing is you can start to feel good NOW!

I hope you have been living the 40 day plan too!  I would love to hear what is coming up for you!

To Your Success,
Stacy

Day 1 of the 40 Day Prosperity Plan

I got up early this morning so that I could do my daily Reiki practice and mediate on day 1, Statement of Principles, of the 40 day prosperity plan in the abundance book.

I do want to start by saying that it has been a challenge for me to continue this.  I think it is so important to start incorporating this into your daily routine.  The book suggests that you do this in the am, right after you wake up or in the pm, right before bed.

I have to say that I was excited to get started!  I really like the fact that we start out with releasing the belief that money is my supply.  My supply is really God, Source, Spirit, whatever you call it!  That is my true abundance and it flows through me.  I am the reality of that.  I found that to be so powerful.

Day 1 is a great start.  I do find myself looking over the statement through out the day!

Join me by getting your book and taking the 40 day prosperity plan: The Abundance Book by John Randolph Price

My Journey with the Abundance Book




Last month the book The Abundance Book by John Randolph Price was recommended with me understand the truth about the Law of Abundance.  In this book it includes a 40 day prosperity plan.  I have started this prosperity plan.

When you start the 40 day plan you need to journal and mediate each day.  It is really about building a practice and changing your beliefs around prosperity and where it comes from.  If you miss a day you need to start from the beginning so that you can be consistent and 

So, I have not gone through a full 40 days, so my goal is to blog about my journey and what I experience as a way of being accountable and engaging in this wonderful process.


I highly recommend that you join me in this journey!  To get your copy of this book just go to amazon.com!


Here is to the next 40 days of Abundance!

The Universe, Our World is Expanding, Are You Up For The Challenge?




Just the other day I was having a conversation with a few people on the economy and jobs.  We all agreed, that there is change taking place right now.  


However, it is the perception of people's views that has everyone running around crazy.  


The way I see it is that people fall into 3 categories.  By no means am I judging any of these people in these categories.  I truly don't think some people know how to move to a place that feels better.  As a society, we tend to gravitate to the negative.



  • You will find people who completely disagree with everything that is going on and the actions that they take are from a place of low energy.  They may feel frustrated, irritated, annoyed even anger.  When you take action from this place, it only creates results that you truly do not want.  You may feel like you are spinning your wheels, you are stuck in a place and you don't know how to get out of it.  You can't see the light. 




  • Then you will find those people who again, completely disagree with everything that is going on BUT their only action is to complain even more about it.  




  • My last category are those people that notice change is happening but decide to look at it in a new light, a new expansion, a different view point.  When you can be open to the change, to the contrast to the challenge, you are actually allowing yourself to connect with those ideas that can help to move you forward.



The conversation turned into how many people are losing their jobs and business is getting pushed out to overseas in the United States.  As I listened to this conversation, this wonderful thought and idea came to me.


I will admit it, I am the person who will most likely look at a "challenge" or area of "contrast" and just know that something bigger and better wants to be born from this.  It certainly may not seem like it at the time, but I know, in my heart that something better will come from this.  


This viewpoint of mine is something that I have learned.  I honestly can say, years ago I would have been placed in the middle category.  One who completely disagreed with everything but only complained about it. 


So, there is hope!  I am proof! =)


So, my wonderful thought that came to me and what I shared in the conversation was, "What if, this is our expansion.  Yes jobs are ending, business is being moved, but, what if, this is our wake up call to do what we truly LOVE."  


There are two ways that you can look at these situations:  You can complain about it, be angry with it.....which will only in return keep you feeling miserable and this will not allow you to tap into any new solutions or ideas.  Because you are feeling so low, you will not get anywhere.  You will feel stuck.


OR


You can say, OK, what is this telling m?.  What am I to learn from this?  In fact, you might want to CELEBRATE because the job that you are losing was probably one that you complained about any way right?


This expansion that we are going through is to open you up to love and creation and to do the things that you truly love and want to do.  That is what we are here to do.  That is your soul's purpose.  


Why live life in a box, feeling depressed, unhappy, unloved when you can experience pure joy and pure bliss each and every day.


So, I am asking you, what is your outlook of your life, your world?  Are you ready to take charge of your life and start living it to it's fullest?  


The best part is that you don't have to wait to make the change.  Your change can start today.  Start today to do the things that you LOVE to do. 


Share with us how you are doing the things that you love to do.  If you don't know how to do them, let us know.  We can brainstorm and get the energy moving!


Here is to doing what you LOVE to do,
Stacy

Are you trying to balance being a stay at home parent with a home business?

I have to say that I have the best job and I really do love it.  I am a full time stay at home mom but I also am running a business, actually two.  One is healthy coaching and the other is business consulting in the health & wellness industry.

I get to be home with my son during the day and then be home for the family in the evening.  My business falls in between all of this.  During my son's nap time and then during the evenings when my husband is home.

However, I found myself very challenged by this week.  Trying to balance my time with my son, who just turned 2 and trying to keep momentum in my businesses so that I can keep up with them and keep them productive.  I found myself getting kind of frustrated.  I felt like time wasn't on my side.

Do you find that is how you are?  Juggling so many things at once that you may feel a bit overwhelmed or frustrated?  Do you feel off balanced?

So, I spend some time yesterday just thinking about how I can be more productive?  How can I continue to provide my son with great enrichment and learning but also feel that I am being productive in my business and still having time for myself?

Then it came to me.  I got some great insight in the form of thoughts!


  • Setting business hours - Do you set your own business hours?  I did and then it turned into doing it whenever it was convenient.  From last week, I found out that this way isn't very productive.  I am not able to give my full attention to my son or my full attention to my business.



  • Using my office - Do you have a home office?  Do you use it?  I have one, but I don't use it! =)  I am guilty of keeping my laptop in the kitchen, which has become my new office.  What I have found out this week is that it really doesn't serve me to mix your business time with my parenting time.  I found that I put half of my focus on each and it really made my day worse.  Not to mention the tugs and pulls from my son wanting me to play with him. =)

  • Taking time for myself - Do you ever do something that you enjoy?  Maybe its a bath or a walk or relaxation outside?  I do however, take time for myself but last week I did slack in this area.  You might be thinking, "How can I take time for myself when I have to take time for everyone else?  Who is going to get it done?  You know, the laundry the dishes?"
    • You know what, you don't have to do it all!  I tell my clients this all the time.  You are the most important person in this world and if you aren't making yourself happy once in the day then no one around you will be happy!  Even if it is for 10 mins, take time out for yourself!

    This week I will be implementing these 3 steps!  I hope that you do the same.  What I do know, and am reminded of this often, if you are doing something that is making your frustrated, overwhelmed, annoyed, etc. then what is making you feel this way will not be going the way you truly want it to go.

    Take some time to really enjoy and have fun with what you are doing.  If you aren't, it is time to step away from it and don't come back until you are ready to enjoy it!

    I look forward to hearing from you on how this process helped!
