How I Manifested My MT. EVEREST ("Impossible") Goal: 100K on IG!

Last week, I hit 100K on Instagram - a milestone that had been a major goal for many years but always felt IMPOSSIBLE. In this episode, I reflect on everything I learned over the last two years and how the path revealed itself when originally I couldn't see it (thanks to some 'subconscious blind spots'). You NEED to be thinking in terms of "Mt. Everest" big goals... here's a story of how a little magic and a few manifesting/EFT tweaks can supercharge your progress towards them!

Want It? LET IT GO. (The Power of Surrender & HOW to Let Go)

We all want what we want when we want it... but at times, this total attachment can strangle the life force out of what we are trying to attract. Something else happens entirely when we let go... we open up to what life is trying to do FOR US. It may lead us there, it may not. But either way, your HIGHEST TIMELINE and your HIGHEST GOOD will be revealed when you let go and get out of your own way.

We all have big goals & big dreams... but, not every day of the journey to their fulfillment is going to look the same. We all know what it feels like to LOSE that spark, passion, and motivation.

Why You Need Energetic Boundaries for Manifesting & Healthy Relationships

How often do you say NO? This episode explores how critical it is to put up energetic boundaries. It's rooted in the idea that all relationships are energetic agreements / arrangements, and how a lack of boundaries can lead to resentment and erode the energy of the relationship. Additionally, a lack of boundaries can weaken the walls of your 'vessel' for attracting what you want. My hope is that this episode gives you newfound confidence in putting yourself first so, in the words of Iyanla Vanzant, your cup can 'runneth over.'

Overcoming the Fear of Being Seen

At our core, we all want to be seen and appreciated. But over the years, we may have developed a FEAR of being seen. The internet and haters/trolls have made it harder than ever for us to show our authentic selves, and putting out content or sharing our lives also opens us up to judgment from those from our pasts or in our lives currently. I talk about all of that at length in this episode, with some considerations that can bring you into newfound bravery. 

I recommend EFT to help you with the core fear like always. My EFT practitioner is Tiffany Jeffers:
