You deserve this…

“That the moment one commits oneself, the Providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings, and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.”

~ William Hutchison Murray, The Scottish Himalayan Expedition

Commit to YOURSELF this year. Be tenacious about claiming the new story you want for your life.

Know that you will be tested. Before the magic of serendipitous events and opportunities arrives, the ego often will wrestle with you, trying to hold you back in what is familiar and feels “safe.”

During this time, in moments of hesitancy, many people find all sorts of excuses for not moving forward, including not having enough time or money. Or they may distract themselves by overextending to others—or by seeking external pursuits like expensive vacations and major purchases instead of committing to the inner workings of lasting and fulfilling transformation.

“Coaching is not a luxury; it’s a necessary tool to have a sounding board for navigating these hugely transformative times.” ~ Gail Kauranen Jones

With so many platforms and activities vying for our attention, it is challenging to find others who will offer us the undivided attention and presence of being seen, heard, validated, and acknowledged, which is the foundation of worthiness.

Moreover, it takes great courage to go inward. Having a guide, to hold you in the sacred space of recreating a life from the inside out, makes the journey a little easier and often more fun.

“The attainment of wisdom is slow and painful, and few are willing to relinquish the familiar, even if inaccurate views; resistance to change or growth is considerable. It would seem that most people are willing to die rather than alter those belief systems which confine them to lower levels of consciousness.” ~ Dr. David Hawkins, Power vs. Force

Many people live at the lower levels of Dr. Hawkins’ “Levels of Consciousness,” stuck in emotions of anger, grief, guilt, shame, and fear to name a few (which is probably compounded by the pandemic).

Here is what I have witnessed happens with clients when they shift INTERNALLY to the higher levels of consciousness, based on my love-based model of success:

  • JOY of aligning with right people and opportunities.
  • PEACE of knowing you are WORTHY for the best and NOT SETTLING.
  • CENTERED, CALM AND PATIENT by waiting to make choices until their options feel peaceful and/or compelling instead of rushing through panic back to what is familiar (which repeats the past).
  • COURAGE and CURIOUSITY of feeling the uncertainty, choosing instead to stay open to magic and miracles.
  • EXCITEMENT of experiencing wonder and awe, in ways one may not have felt since childhood when the world felt like (AND STILL IS) an endless realm of unlimited possibilities.
  • DEEPER LOVE for self and others, and more warmth and meaningful connections from open-hearted living.

Making yourself a priority is an act of self-care. As I repeatedly share: “Being centered in self is not the same as being self-centered. The more we fill ourselves up first, the more we have to give genuinely to others. It’s hard to give from an empty tank.”

For 2023, I am inviting those committed to change to sign on by month’s end to my one-one- one coaching program to secure a spot. The individualized program includes:

  • Customized guided meditations set to music, and grounding exercises, that take only 10 minutes daily to begin rewiring your brain for new outcomes (and get your body in a restful state to allow in new possibilities).
  • Being lovingly witnessed which is a necessary component to ingraining a greater sense of worthiness.
  • The reframing of words (based on my 40 years of expertise as writer) which can create rapid shifts.
  • EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) clearings that release stress and past traumas from the body, contributing to greater health and well-being.

Let’s rise together to the highest levels of well-being and consciousness, where we not only improve our lives, but contribute to making this world a much more loving place in which to live and thrive.

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it! Begin it now.”
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Wishing you a wonder-filled 2023.

To greater love, prosperity, and well-being,


The day I met my talented photographer friend, Janice Vuncannon Sears Grady, she was capturing the beautiful photo above of these Spoonbills at Lake Crabtree, Cary, NC. Spoonbills are believed to be symbols of strength, freedom, and unity of fellow creatures. They also represent courage and the ability to clear obstacles in the way.
