Cozy up. It’s that time. I invite you to take 11 minutes and let me guide you through a simple and powerful year-end ritual.

There are 4 short parts.

I suggest you create space in your day to sit down for a few minutes, grab a pen and paper, make some tea and press play.

This is also a beautiful exercise to do with the people you love – including friends, partners, and even children.

This simple 4-part process will help you take stock of where you’ve been so you can gather strength for where you’re going.

You can click the button below to listen to me guide you through this process or you can guide yourself by reading below.


1) The pain.

Leonard Cohen once said “There’s a crack in everything.  That’s how the light gets in.”

2017 has been an incredibly challenging year for most everyone I know – not only the world and domestic stage, but also in our personal lives.  It has challenged us in a way most of weren’t expecting.

So we must first acknowledge the pain…

What is 1 of the most painful things or situations that happened this year?

It’s important to acknowledge and feel the pain, and then let it go.


2) The gold.

Right after the pain, the light comes in.  

In all pain, there is growth.  In everything that is hard and challenging in our lives, there is also learning.  There is always gold that comes from pain when we look for it.  Pain doesn’t just happen for pain’s sake. Even though we dont’ understand why pain happens wh en it’s happening. The truth is that pain always helps us becomes better versions of ourselves – stronger, more real, more raw, and more beautiful.

What is the gold you can collect from the pain this year?  What is 1 positive thing you learned about yourself from the painful experience?


3) The dust.

Every year, there are always things that happen that we never ever want to repeat again.  I call these things the dust.  These may be certain people, patterns, old habits, or situations you don’t ever want to repeat again.

What are 1-3 things you want to leave behind in the dust of 2017?


4) The fuel.

The fuel is what you’ll use to propel you forward into next year.  Imagine who you want to become in 2017.  See the person you want to become.  Feel the new version of you.

What is the 1 word you need to be in order to fuel you forward?  What is the word that describes who you need to be next year in order to live the life you want to live?

Example: Brave, courageous, fearless, unstoppable, sovereign, abundant, open-hearted.

Everything that has happened before is gone – the pain, the gold, the dust – it’s all gone. What remains is the FUEL.  

This FUEL is the 1-word guiding principle for 2018.  It’s the fuel for who you’re meant to become next year.

Write your FUEL down and let it guide you through every moment next year.



Bowing to all of the pain and the lessons from 2017 as we welcome in 2018 with love and excitement.

“You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one; each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.” —Paulo Coehlo

If you are ready to go deeper with me as your guide in a soulful and supportive community, keep reading…

I am opening up 8 spots for PRIVATE, 1:1 work with me in my Awaken 8-week program – for women who are ready to use their FUEL to light up their entire lives with purpose, clarity, and confidence.

If you are ready to…
1) Stand in your own radiance, in your power, in your light….
2) Dig deep into who you are so that you can make profound and lasting changes.
3) Realign the inside so that the outside falls into place. 
4) Finally understand subconscious patterns and beliefs that have been holding you back.
5) Awaken to who you truly are underneath all the roles, masks, and accomplishments.

Then AWAKEN may be for you.

Awaken is an 8-week private transformational journey for women who are ready to know who they and why they’re here.

And it’s not for everyone.

It’s a profoundly held spiritual program that focuses on our inner game.

Because when we get the inside right, the outside falls into place. But most of us do it backward – we try to fix the outer stuff and expect to feel good on the inside.  You must focus on awakening the inside first.
Are you ready like you’ve never been before?

There are only 8 spaces available for this private work + applications close on January 3rd.


Read all the details about Awaken here >>>


May your life be filled with miracles next year! 

With so much love,


p.s. There are a limited number of spaces to work with me in this way!  We begin mid-January but applications CLOSE on Wednesday, January 3rd. You will know if it is time for you to go on this journey.  You can read more and apply here if you are called.

If you feel overwhelmed, do this.

Happy Sunday! I know if you open this email, some part of you either feels overwhelmed or has felt overwhelmed in the past. It’s something that all of us experience, no matter what our to-do list looks like or how many responsibilities we have. We women are caretakers so it’s natural for us to feel consumed by all of the things that we have to do. We feel overwhelmed…. Withread more

Mind-Blowing Sand Art

One man.  One rake.  Hours of incredible work erased immediately after its completion.  Andres Amador uses a rake on a beach to create some of the most incredible art I’ve ever seen.  He spends hours creating his work, and then he watches as it disappears into the ocean.  When I read about him last week and saw his work, I was blown away. What an incredible lesson in living:  Followread more
