Officially Coming Out of the Woo-Woo Closet

Turns out, I’ve been hiding something for a long time. I am ready to come out of a dark, confining closet because I want you to know that you don't have to stay there either, whatever kind of closet that is for you.

 

Lately…

There have been a lot of transformative changes in my life happening very quickly.  I have taken on a larger role in the world and I’m ready to share more details of my story and what’s been emerging for me this past year, to catch you up to speed on how my life and career are shifting. I trust those who are reading this will enjoy it and get something out of it.

Most of you know that I’ve been a Professional Organizer and Feng Shui Consultant for years. What you may not know is that I’ve also been training to become a certified Life Coach for the past year while simultaneously expanding my spiritual practice through mentorship, sisterhood and personal development retreats. Not only that but I’m now involved in Priestess training for the next 8 months. It’s high vibe over here! If you don’t have a clue about what I just said, read on…

It’s been so much fun as an Organizer, working hard, getin’ dirty in garages, setting up systems, building a team, collaborating and changing women’s relationships with their home. It was a lovely step up from my personal and executive assisting days. I still love in-person organizing, especially on larger projects that incorporate a team, coaching and Feng Shui in the mix. That’s where I can really shine in this work. My capability to manage, maintain order and create the most comforting environment is top notch. It’s second nature to me. I can easily recognize what’s missing, what you need and why you need it - all while having a lot of fun. I know that you can’t enjoy life to it’s fullest if you aren’t enjoying your space. My strengths here are best suited for those who want premium support to totally transform their life and space. 

 

Then this happened…

What I found was that organizing wasn’t fulfilling enough for me. I didn’t become an entrepreneur to just make money, I started my own biz to have more meaning and fulfillment while making money. Even though I love what I do, I was still yearning for more meaning in my own life and work. I knew there was more to maintaining organization, but I didn’t have the know how to really work with that. I realized that my most favorite jobs were those where we got to dig into conversation about what was going on in their life and connect that with their space. I looked back on my own history with life coaching and Feng Shui training that held so much connection to what I was already doing. After spontaneously attending an online webinar, I found my own mentor and discovered that Life Coaching and Mentoring was calling my soul. 

Anyone can become a certified life coach in a weekend, but that’s not my style. I always like to take an all-encompassing approach (hence, the way I work as an Organizer), because I know that’s how we learn and maintain best. This is why I shelled out the investment and 12 months of my life into myself and my future to study with a master Life Coach, a Polarity Mentor and in sacred sisterhood. I was able to step up my game as a leader. I learned the art of receiving, how small changes create big results, what consistency does for our soul and how to step out into a thought-leader role authentically. There was enough time to dive in fully to conversation models and feminine business practices while also practicing as I’m working. It’s called Mentor Masterclass with Jeannine Yoder. There’s a waiting list well into 2016, so my timing was divine to say the least. Now, I’m able to give back as a Sister Guide to the current students while learning even more about running a successful coaching business behind the scenes.

 

Deep down…

Beyond my expression as a professional, I am a very spiritual person and always have been. I grew up in the Church, have always had a strong intuition or psychic sense and truly believe in the cosmic powers of our universe. I infuse spirituality in my work where most people won’t even recognize it. In fact, every part of my career has spiritual elements intermixed. 

This is the piece of me that I’ve been trying to cover up. I have been scared to be the full, spiritual being I know I am. Why? Because I didn't think people could handle it. Because I thought people would no longer think I was professional and write me off as one of though woo-woo-weirdos. I was devoted to a mainstream approach because it felt safe, and I was good at it.

I would never intentionally withhold anything, if asked, and yet, fundamentally, I have struggled with the belief that "I'm not good enough" or that I'll be poor if I choose to follow my whole dream and express my whole self in my work.

Here's the irony. I became spiritually and emotionally poor because I wasn't marketing, teaching and training to my full potential. I was not honoring ALL of me. Can you relate to this? Does this sound familiar? 

When we live out of fear, we diminish our creativity, play small and constantly compare ourselves to others.

When we step into our full potential, our inner light shines brighter and lights the way for us to easily find success. (TWEET THAT!)

 

To clarify…

When I talk about spirituality, I don’t mean religion at all. I’m talking about connecting with our higher selves, the universal laws and receiving guidance from helpers of any kind. This is the holistic way of life - utilizing our whole selves or having an all-encompassing approach as I mentioned before. Spirituality is for anyone and most people are more spiritual than they think. 

Here’s a common definition I found:


"Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life. As such, it is a universal human experience—something that touches us all."

And that is what I am all about: connecting to our own truth and adding more meaning and enjoyment into our human experience through our environment closest to us (head, heart & home).

 

A-ha!

What I realized this year on my spiritual journey is this:
That I am here to inspire others to find freedom through courageous authenticity and connection. To lead as a Sacred Feminine teacher and healer that allows others to find their own truth. To bring joy and laughter, holding space for the emotional growth and expansion of women. To offer a unique approach to achievement through practical, emotional and spiritual self-expression. To create more ease, fun, balance, movement and meaning through the “dance” of energies so we can all unite and experience monumental upward shifts in the quality of life on this planet. 

It’s a mouthful, I know. I can’t disguise this side of me any longer, though. This is how my best work is done. When I include these gifts and strengths of mine into my business, so much more is possible for my clients and myself!

DO this through emotional & psychological development techniques like Coaching (HEAD: figuring out how to move forward), energetic techniques like Feng Shui (HEART: calling in what you want) and physical techniques like organizing (HOME: structure + design for ease + enjoyment). 

Ahh, it all comes together as my next level of service to the world, and it feels good! 

 

So, that’s why I am a Magical Maven for your head, heart and home. I’m a Mystic Mentor and SOULpreneur. I am a writer, speaker, coach and believer of everyday magic.

 

The right fit…

My desire is to work with women secretly trapped in perfectionism and are fed up with the chaos. I help them to stop pushing themselves so hard, work smarter not harder by creating a feminine foundation of success in their head, heart & home. I guide them to greatness through a spiritual + practical approach to magnifying their meaning and getting organized. My biggest desire is to help women see the magic in themselves and therefore reach their highest potential. 

Know anyone like this? I would love for you to share this post.

 

Thanks for reading. My wish for you, dear reader, is that a light has lit up inside of you. That clarity has come and your readiness is recognized. Are you hiding anything that is keeping you from your own greatness?  I welcome any responses. Email me privately or post a comment below what you would like to declare!

 

Lots of love,

5 Tips for Spring Cleaning with Feng Shui

Happy Spring! What a perfect time to start fresh with a clean house and new intentions. Amongst the typical spring cleaning duties, there are more in depth ways to make your space sparkle while also enhancing your life! It’s important for energy to flow freely. You might not realize that some parts of your life can be affected by those hidden areas that are neglected. Check out my top 5 tips for spring cleaning that include the 3 main principles of Feng Shui.

1. Declutter and purge! The catch all drawer, the bathroom cupboards, your closet or that messy desk drawer need your help. Dump everything out so you can see it all. Get rid of everything you don’t need (something you haven’t used in 6 months to a year or whatever is not serving you anymore). Put like things together back in and use dividers if possible. Even small spaces can be scary when cluttered. Start small and pretty soon, you’ll get the confidence to tackle a big project you’ve been putting off. Or just call me ;)

2. Vacuum, dust or mop UNDER all furniture, tables, shelves, closets- especially the things that never move. Schedule a strong volunteer to help if needed. Take the items sitting on top away (like glasses in your cupboard or all the books on the bookcase) and clean. Dust and dirt are not energy’s friend, even if you can’t see it. 

3. Clean your refrigerator. Take everything out and scrub it down with an eco cleaner or vinegar/water solution. Be careful not to use mainstream chemical “cleaners" in your refrigerator where your food will be. Don’t forget to wipe the bottom vent. Often forgotten about, those gooey spills can affect a certain area of your life. If you know which area, it might be an ironic metaphor. 

4. Walk through your space and gather all of your broken items. Look for things with zippers, in your cupboards, around the outside of your house, or your storage area. Either get rid of it because it’s not doing you any justice, or make a pact with the item to fix it by a certain time. Hopefully you can have faith in the fact that broken things don’t belong around you.

5. Now that you have gotten rid of at least ONE thing (right?!), introduce a brand new, preferably “spring-y" something to beautify your freshly cleaned space. Put a brighter comforter on your bed, new pillows for the couch, a fresh smelling candle for the bathroom or whatever brings a smile to your face. This is a crucial step of closure to move forward with your new intentions at this inspiring time. If you want, you can even place your own unique blessing over the space or certain items.

ENJOY!
