Is your head swimming with ideas but you have a hard time implementing any of them? Do you have a huge vision but you can’t figure out how to get there? Here are 4 steps you can take to start turning your ideas into reality.
Creative people are idea generators. If you’re creative, you know - new ideas are constantly streaming into your mind. This can be a wonderful gift if you know how to manage and implement your ideas.
However, if you aren’t acting on your ideas, they accumulate in your mind and can feel very overwhelming. If you aren’t getting throughput with your ideas, you can start to question your self-esteem, start losing track of your vision or even become depressed.
I see this time and time again with my clients and it’s something I’ve had to learn to manage in my own life. I get to work with the most amazing, creative people! My clients show up with tons of amazing ideas. The problem is, they have so many ideas that they have a hard time picking one to go with. Meanwhile, they aren’t accomplishing any of them.
I help my clients organize their ideas and break them into step-by-step actions to bring their ideas into physical reality.
Imagine a cup sitting on your desk. That cup was first an idea in someone’s mind. In order to bring the cup from the idea phase (non-physical reality) into physical reality, the person had to focus on it. They had to pick that one concept and work with it until it became a product they could hold in their hand and create a business around.
The idea had to be focused on in great detail – what color would the cup be? How big would it be? Which material would it be made from? Who would manufacture the cup? All of these questions had to be answered in order to bring the cup into reality.
It’s the same with your ideas and your business. If you have an idea, you must give it focused attention in order to make it a reality. You must spend time working out the details. You have to focus on one idea at a time.
Here’s how to move from idea into action:
If you are ready to start taking action on your ideas, message me. I would love to help you streamline your ideas and break them into manageable action items. We will sit down together and map out which steps are necessary to bring your idea into fruition. It helps tremendously to have someone help you untangle all of your ideas, get clear on what needs to happen first and create action plans for making your ideas a reality.
You really can do this! You just have to get organized, prioritize and start taking action. Don’t wait any longer. You truly can create the life of your dreams. One step at a time. Just get started. <3

If you aren't asking for help when you need it, then it's time to start. Anything I want to know, I ask the Universe. If I am stumped on a problem, any problem, or not sure what to do about something, I always tune in and get answers.
I do this with any problem, not just significant things. When I worked in IT, when I got stuck on computer problems, I would take a break and ask for help. I would ask to be shown the answer. I would ask what I was missing, then walk around for about 10 minutes and let go of it. When I came back, 9 times out of 10, I would always figure it out. Sometimes, the answer would come in a dream. I remember seeing computer code running through my mind when I was asleep and wake up with the solution.
I’ve learned to communicate with God, the Universe, our Higher Selves, Source, Consciousness – whatever you call the loving presence that surrounds us. We can learn to tap into this knowledge base on a daily/regular basis. God is always right there interacting with us when we ask.
We don’t have to have all of the answers. We just need to know how to look them up. It’s like Google. You can ask any question and get an answer. You just have to know how to tune in.
Here's my process:
1. Ask out loud for what you need. Instead of focusing on the problem or what I don't have, I shift it into a question. "What is needed in this situation?" "What are you trying to show me here?" "How can I get what is needed?" - money/time/support - whatever it is. "How can I process this more effectively/lovingly?"
I hear this a lot. .”I don’t have the money”. Instead of focusing on not having enough money, turn it into a question. “How can I get the money?” This is waaaay more empowering than believing you don’t have the resources you need.
It’s all about finding the right question to ask. If you don’t get an answer in a reasonable amount of time, try asking in a different way.
Sometimes, you just need to ask for help. Sometimes, you are trying to have too much control in your questions. If you feel stuck, ask “Please send me what is needed in this situation.” “Please help me deal with this.” “Please show me what the next step is.” These questions are more open ended and can bring different result.
2. Let Go. Once you have asked for help, clarity, guidance, answers, whatever it is that you need, then let go and listen. Just go about your business and pay attention to what comes in.
Answers may come in the form of ideas, opportunities, knowings, changes. Just be open to what comes to you next.
3. Listen. Listening is different than thinking. When you let go and listen, you listen to what comes into your mind with ease.
The answers are not the messages that come from a wrinkled up forehead. They are not the product of overthinking. They are the ideas that come floating in when you are mowing the grass or doing dishes. Those are the answers to take action on. Those are the ones that hold truth.
Learning to communicate in this way, helps you develop and strengthen your relationship with God/Source. When you ask and listen, you learn to interact with the Divine. You step into the unfoldment of your life.
We don’t have to control everything. We don’t have to have all of the answers. We just need to know get out of the way and learn to interact with the unfoldment that is happening in our lives.
The more we tune in, the more we live in harmony with changes occurring in our lives. We begin trusting God and realize that we are co-creators with this intelligence. We are not victims of circumstance. We have direct input. We have a loving friend that is right there waiting to help and guide us.
When we ask, we receive. So start asking and stop struggling!
I was talking with a client yesterday and it reminded me of myself a couple of years ago. This may be you too. Does this sound familiar?
You have great ideas - you aren’t sure how to implement them - you feel overwhelmed - so you do nothing – you remain stuck.
You have ideas about what to do. You watch free webinars and try to mimic what other people are doing. But it’s not consistent. You are still struggling to make ends meet. You feel stuck.
You know in your heart that you have a great service to offer the world. You believe it will “happen”. Yet you need it to happen now or you need to get a JOB.
Your TO DO list is so long that you get overwhelmed and can’t do any of it. You become immobilized. You let overwhelm stop you in your tracks.
I was the exact same way. When I first started my coaching business, I had tons of ideas. They all seemed like huge undertakings. I wasn’t sure where to start so I remained stuck. I kept trying to figure things out on my own. I saw what other people were doing. I listened to free webinars. I tried and tried but didn’t gain any real traction.
If things got difficult, if I had too much on my plate or I couldn’t see a clear path to where I was going, I would throw a switch, go into overwhelm and go into shut down mode. Not moving forward. I would tell myself it was too hard. I must not be ready. It must not be the right time.
When I hung out in overwhelm, it felt like someone had a hose hooked up to me and was sucking all of my life energy. I couldn’t see clearly. I was drained. I was immobilized.
Meanwhile, I needed to make money. And I needed a consistent income quickly!
I finally started working with a coach who helped me break my ideas into manageable tasks that were attainable. In the matter of weeks, I turned my ideas into money making programs! She showed me a formula for success. I went from spinning my wheels to making a consistent income doing EXACTLY what I wanted.
I created my business around who I am, what my values are and my own healing path. I now attract clients who need EXACTLY what I have to offer. I have the exact skillset to help my clients because they are going through the same things I experienced in my past. We are walking a very similar path. We are just in different phases of it. We have similar beliefs. Similar struggles. It’s very specific too. Things where you believed you were the only one who felt that way. It feels so great to have clients that are a perfect match for both parties. To me, these are the best coaching relationships.
Plus, I get to use ALL of the skills I’ve accumulated in my life. All of the jobs/paths I thought were meaningless, have now come back into play. It is sooooo incredibly fun and rewarding to help women birth their businesses. I love what I do. It fits me perfectly. And - I make great money doing it.
To get to this point, I needed someone to work one-on-one with me - to focus on MY SPECIFIC BUSINESS. Listening to webinars was not getting me the results I wanted. I had to commit. I had to believe in myself. I had to invest in myself and making my business a reality. I had to surrender.
Once I sat down with someone to outline MY specific experiences and offerings and learned real success formulas, my business took off – what seemed like overnight.
What I learned about my pattern of overwhelm is that it was a coping mechanism and my way of keeping myself stuck. The truth was, I was scared to put myself out there in a very real way. I was scared to share my voice. I was scared to take the lead. I was scared to shine.
If I allowed myself to live in place of overwhelm then I didn’t have to move forward. If I had too much on my plate, I had a reason for not succeeding.
My commitment to coaching helped me blast through all of my fear and create exactly what I wanted. One step at a time – I moved from overwhelm to success. Together, we took each piece and broke it into an actionable item. When I went into overwhelm, she brought me back. As we snapped each piece into place, I began seeing the overall picture of what I really did have to offer. I felt confident enough to sell my service. Plus, now I had products to sell that I felt good about. Products that were and still are close to my heart.
I can help you do the same thing. In my Profit to Passion Program, we will sit down together and outline all of your skills and services. We will package them into money making programs that are perfectly aligned with who you are and what you have to offer. We will get clear on who YOUR ideal client is. I will show you how to create these perfect client matches. Plus through this process, you will gain the confidence you need to boldly move forth.
I will teach you how to attract your ideal clients. I will teach you how to fill your one-to-one and group programs. I will teach you marketing and sales strategies that feel good – not slimy.
I will show you how to make money being yourself.
I will show you how to turn your overwhelm into a clear path to success too. It is so awesome when you get out of your own way. The world opens up to you. Because it can! Because you are open enough to allow it in.

The wisdom of the hawk. The other day I saw four black birds chasing a hawk, cawing at her the whole time. The black birds chased the hawk from tree to tree.
I am VERY fond of hawks so I continued watching this wondering how the hawk would get out of the situation. It was literally being ganged up on by these other birds.
The hawk tried to get away but the black birds kept chasing it. Eventually she started soaring. She kept soaring making wide circles, circling higher and higher.
The hawk used her strength and ability to soar plus she eventually raised her altitude to the point that the black birds could no longer keep up. They finally went away and there she was flying gracefully, high into the sky in all her beauty.
This reminded me that when we feel ganged up on by the people or circumstances around us that all we need to do is raise our vibration to one of peace and harmony so we can fly in peace in the expansive sky.
There's not need to struggle, just trust in your strength, follow what you know and rise to new heights. The higher you go, the more clear you become. People or circumstances vibrating at lower frequencies will lose heart and turn away.
Thank you Hawk for showing me your strength and wisdom<3
Someone asked me today how I deal with fear and self-doubt. Doubt is fear so I will just refer to fear when I’m talking about it here.
First of all, fear is not an emotion that needs to be avoided. It’s also not an emotion that you need to give a lot of energy to. Fear is information. Period. Fear notifies you that you are moving into unknown territory. When you feel fear, acknowledge it!
So many of us go around avoiding fear. We will run to high heaven to avoid feeling fear. The problem here is that what we resist persists so the more you run from fear, the louder it gets.
When I feel fear, I sit down and acknowledge it. Don’t get me wrong, I still find myself avoiding it but now I may avoid it an hour or two verses days, weeks, months or even years that I used to spend running from it.
So when I notice my fear pattern. I go somewhere where I can be alone for 10-15 minutes. I close my eyes, visualize sitting down next to my fear and I ask “What are you afraid of?”
I let the fear tell me what it is afraid of. I give it a voice. Then I thank it. After all, fear is just trying to keep you safe. Fear’s job is to send you signals when it notices something out of the ordinary. So thank fear for doing it’s job.
Then, you are back in control. You get to decide where to go from here. I usually thank my fear and then explain to it that I am an adult now. I have things under control. I can be trusted and so on. Another words, I let the fear know that I appreciate it’s concern but I know what I’m doing. Or at least I can handle the situation.
Think of your fear as an overly concerned parent. We’ve all heard well intentioned advice about how to live our lives and how we better be careful. Do we listen to that advice? Not usually. We thank the person for their concern and then we move forward. This is the same concept that I apply when fear crops up in my life.
When you feel fear, get excited! This is a signal that you are expanding. Just assure that scared part of you that you see what’s happening and you have things under control. Sometimes you can do this once and it works, other times you may need to remind your fearful self several times within the hour.
The more you move forward and prove to your fear that you are in charge and that you can handle situations, the more you build trust within yourself and the less it will feel the need to notify you of every little shift.
I hope you find this helpful! Enjoy your day!
PS. If you are struggling with fear or self-doubt, message me. I would love to help you befriend your fear so you can expand your life in ways you dream of. <3
No matter what is going on in your life, your mindset is the most important thing you can focus on to improve your situation. This is true whether you are talking about your physical health, your financial health, your relationships, your career – name it. Your mindset is the KEY!
You can transform any situation in your life by changing your mind.
For years I believed that I had to focus on the problem so I could “figure it out”. If I just understood “why” this was happening then I could change it.
I later realized that I was putting A LOT of energy and focus on the “problem” by doing that. To shift my situation, I simply had to focus on what I wanted instead – to start seeing myself well, secure, loved, etc.
You see, the mind will go out and find evidence to support any belief that you hold. That is your minds job. This keeps you safe.
For example, if you believe your job sucks then every day you go in, you will find evidence to support that your job sucks. “See, this company doesn’t even ______”. “See, my boss ________.” “Can you believe my co-workers??”
Do you see how our belief determines what we see? These are called our filters. Everyone sees the world through the filters of what they believe.
What if you decided that you were sick of feeling this way? So you either get a new job or a new attitude. You can change your job, just by changing your mind. TRY IT!
If instead, you went into work each day looking for evidence to support that you have a great job, you will notice totally different things in your environment. You start noticing that your boss isn’t a jerk, she is just stressed at home. Maybe her child is sick or she is struggling with her own problems. You see that you do have coworkers that have similar ideas as you. You see that the company offers some great incentives for _____.
This is just an example. You can apply this model to anything in your life.
If you are dealing with a physical illness, is it going to support you to focus on what’s wrong? “But I have to focus on it – how else will I get better” people say to me. While it is true that you have to do certain things to maintain balance in your body, it is not true that by focusing on what’s wrong is going to make you feel better.
Instead, start focusing on getting better. Start seeing yourself as whole. Start finding evidence to support that you are getting better. “See, I made progress today!”
When people ask us how we are doing, it’s tempting to tell them how we don’t feel well, etc. But what this does is give more energy to not feeling well. It feeds what we DO NOT want which is to feel bad. Instead, when people ask how you are doing, tell them “I am getting better every day!” Share with them the little victories you have noticed.
See how this simple shift in mindset leads you closer to where you want to be, which is WELL and HAPPY!
Try these tips for yourself! Don’t just read about them. Share them with others who may benefit. They WORK! You have much more power in your situation then you think. Decide to believe whatever it is that you want. Go out and find proof that it exists in your world. Of course, you can proof of the opposite. The truth is, you can find proof to support anything you want. Why not make it something good!
Sending you lots love and light today!
PS. If you feel like you are stuck about money, your health, your business, relationship, whatever it is, message me and let’s get you unstuck. You’re physical, emotional and spiritual well-being IS WORTH investing in. Don’t waste any more time. You have no idea how much it helps to have someone to work through these things with. The trickiest thing about shifting your mindset is that it is hard to see for ourselves what we are doing. We are too close to it. And the people in our lives often have vested interest in us staying where we are. You can start making great strides when you have someone outside your daily life to work with. Stop trying to figure it out for yourself. The best coaches have coaches!
Clarity is the foundation for creating. If you aren’t clear, it’s very difficult to create anything. Anything that you want, anyway.
We create our lives through the thoughts we think, the beliefs we hold, through what we focus our actions upon. If we are focused on several different things or we aren’t sure exactly what we want, we remain stuck. We aren’t getting anywhere.
Here’s the Recipe to Create What You Want In Your Life and/or Your Business
1. Clarity - When you have a clear idea of what you want to create and attract into your life, the Universe will deliver. When you are tangled up in what’s not working, what’s happened in the past, and trying to “figure it out”. You remain stuck. Get clear on what you DO WANT. Sit down and write it all out.
Often times people are afraid to even say what they want because they can’t figure out a way to make it happen. Guess what? That’s not your job. Your job is to get clear. TIP: Tune into your heart for this clarity, your head does not have the answer.
2. Focus – Once you are clear, your job is to remain clear. Don’t allow yourself to be thrown off track by doubt.
Often times I see people get clear, they start focusing on what they want to create in their lives, it’s not happening fast enough so they lose heart and go back to thinking the way they did before they started.
I always tell my clients that changing your thinking is similar to changing your eating. When you start eating better, your body doesn’t shift overnight. It took time to get to where you are and it takes time to experience improvements. It’s the same thing with your thinking. When you shift your thinking, give it some time! You didn’t create your current reality overnight and it may take time to shift things around.
3. Action – Once you have a clear intent and you are focused on what you want, it is time to take action! You have to put yourself out there if you want to create a change. You aren’t going to change anything by doing the same things day in and day out. You will keep creating the same result. Allow your actions to be led by your heart. Again, your head does not know the answers. Your head is in the business of keeping you safe. Your heart knows the path you are capable of creating. Let your heart lead the way.
I am teaching a class on Wednesday, October 28 at Rainbow Blossom on Gardiner Lane from 6p-8p. I will go into more detail about how to apply this Recipe for Creating What You Want in your own life.
I will guide you through a step by step process that has the power to change your life and attract what you really want. This is the same process I used to sell my herbal product business and attract the perfect house for me in 40 days.
This is a hands on class. We will beactively creating in this class so come prepared with one thing you want to create most in your life. If you are having difficulty tuning into that or narrowing it down, come anyway. We will fine tune together.
In this workshop you will....
I hope you can join me for this night of fun, clarity, focus and action! Sign up here.
PS. I would love to work with you one on one to get more clear and focused too. You will be amazed at how quickly your life starts shifting when you start focusing on it! I always work with a coach when I get stuck. Why sit around wasting time when you can work with someone who will help you get back into the flow. I will help you get clear, teach you focusing tools so you can stay on track and outline an action plan to your heart’s desire. You really can do this! I am living proof of it. I have recreated my life multiple times. I am in the process of it again. I will show you how. <3
Love of love to you!
1. Know Your Bottom Line - Like I said yesterday, clarity is key. So many people avoid getting clear on their finances because they are scared to know where they stand. The truth is, once you get clear, you get your power back. If you remain in the dark then you are letting your finances control you. When you get clear and take steps to improve your financial situation, you will feel a sense of confidence knowing that you are back in charge!
2. Seal Your Leaks - It's amazing how much money you can reclaim when you discover where your leaks are. It's hard to fill a cup that has a hole in it! Seal your leaks and you will attract and keep more money.
3. Shift Your Mindset - Instead of saying "I can't afford it" say "How can I afford it?" Feel the difference? This simple little tweak takes you from powerlessness to expansion.
Are you tired of believing in lack and limitation? Are you ready to write a new money story?
Here's how my client Beth shifted her story.
When Beth and I started working together, she was in way over her head financially. She wanted to work with me but wasn't sure how she would get the money. I encouraged her to commit to the coaching process and that the money would show up.
Your commitment determines your outcomes. When you pay a down payment on a vacation, you will do whatever it takes to get there, right? It's the same thing when you commit to anything. When you commit yourself, you do whatever it takes to fulfill the commitment and the Universe/God/Spirit also supports your commitment. Commitments are very powerful!
She decided to trust in herself and the process.
We sat down and outlined her financial situation. We found where she was leaking money. We were able to recoup over $100 per month from this one process alone. That may not sound like a lot but when things are tight, $100 per month is a big deal. Especially, when you are trying to create some wiggle room.
We outlined a plan where she could shift some things around, sell unnecessary items, reduce other expenses and created even more wiggle room.
The more space we created in her finances, the more space she felt in her life in general. Money is just energy. I love working with money because it's a physical representation of how we are using our energy in other areas of our lives as well.
If money isn't flowing in your life, look to see how energy is flowing in other areas of your life? Is your energy stagnant in general? Is your energy closed off?
So the more we cleared away, the more we organized, the more we implemented systems that supported her financially, the more she felt empowered in her finances as well as in the rest of her life! Before, she had always relied on other people to manage her finances which left her feeling very dependent and vulnerable. Now she is taking charge.
Sometimes, your money struggles cover up other issues you don't want to see. If all of your focus is on struggling with money then you don't have to pay attention to your heart's desire. You don't have to step up and put yourself out there - or whatever it may be for you.
The more clarity we created in her finances, the more clarity she had in general.
She began clearing up other situations and relationships in her life. Taking charge of her finances opened up all sorts of doors for her.
She went from depending on others to creating a life for her self on her own terms.
Good thing she trusted herself enough to start the process! Otherwise, she would still be sitting there in the same situation day in and day out - wishing something would change - feeling powerless to change. I'm sorry but shifts like this are invaluable!
This is the power of clarity, taking action and shifting your belief.
CLARITY + PROPER ACTION + PROPER MINDSET = SUCCESS!

Creating Wellness & Wealth Consciousness,
The reason change is so scary is because we lose control. One way to ground yourself in change is to create order with the things that we can control. Get organized!
Walk around your house. What feels overwhelming to you? Do you have papers stacked up that need to be gone through? A stack of bills that need your attention? Do you need to go through your clothes? Swap closets? Organize your spare room?
I had three stacks of papers in my office that needed a home. I created file folders for all of my miscellaneous papers. This one simple process shifted me big time. I could suddenly see things I hadn’t seen before. I have more energy and focus for my work again. Cleaning and clearing can really help restore order in your mind which opens the door for clarity.
What needs to go? Like I said yesterday, Fall is the time of simplifying. What can you get rid of that will lighten your load? Clearing out what you no longer need creates more space in your life. Start thinking in terms of clearing away excess both in your environment and your life.
I am selling some items we’ve outgrown, taking others to goodwill and preparing for junk pickup. It feels great to create new space in my home. It’s amazing how these little things affect us emotionally too! Clearing space decreases any feeling of overwhelm for sure.
What can you organize in your life? Take a look at your daily rhythms. Can you make any changes that will free up more time and energy? What can you let go of or redefine? How can you organize your day so you feel more in alignment with who you are and what you really want to accomplish?
I sat down and outlined some projects that are important to me. I redefined my schedule to give me time to work on each thing I want to accomplish. Working on something for a short amount of time each day will eventually lead to completion!
Go back to the basics. Let the little things restore order in your world. What can you organize today?
PSS. If you want support with organizing, releasing and sealing your energy leaks, message me. I would love to help you clear the clutter and organize your life in a way that is in alignment with who you are.
Lots of love,

We are going through some pretty intense times right now. Nearly everyone I know is going through some sort of major change. Change can be unsettling. Even positive changes are often scary. Even though we are asking for change in our lives, our tendency is to cling to what we know. Especially when so many things in your life are changing. It can feel like the rug is getting pulled out from under you.
Fall is the time of harvest but it’ also a time for stripping away the excess and simplifying our lives before going into the cold, darker cycle of winter. We will need more energy reserves to sustain ourselves in the winter. Winter is a more internal time. It’s a time for going within and reflecting. This internal time is necessary to bring forth the new burst of life in the spring.
Many of us already know this but it’s still easy to get caught up in the feelings of loss or fear when you see things in your life slipping away.
The key here is trust! Take a step back from what’s in front of your face and view the overall picture of your life. It’s hard to see clearly when you are holding something up to your nose. This is often the perspective from which we view our lives. When you feel like your world is falling apart, take a step back to gain a larger perspective.
What have you been asking for in your life? When you ask for something from your heart of hearts, the Universe (God, Spirit) will start working to bring this change into your life. But often, other things have to change first. You may not have room in your life for what you are asking for. You may not be able to get from there from here so you start experiencing a series of changes to direct you on your new path.
When this change starts happening, you freak out and think the worse. It is human nature to fear change. We asked for more in our lives, not less. But sometimes we have to let go of something in order for something new to emerge.
Here are three tips to help you ride the waves of change in your life:
I hope you find these ideas helpful. If you are going through a difficult time and want some extra support, message me. I would love to support you through your transition. I always have someone to work with during my most trying times. Sometimes we need someone else to hold the light and encourage us until we can see the truth of who we are.
From my heart to yours!
Lots of Love,
Nutritionist, Empowerment & Transformation Coach
