How To Speak Power Into Your Life

We are all looking for the same thing in life: To love and be loved, feel good, important and worthy, have a purpose, live our passion, be inspired and so on.

But what many of us don’t realize is just how powerful we are. How much control we really do have when it comes to living the life of our dreams and showing up big.

We think we need more money, to look differently, be a certain age or from a certain family, wait for the “right” person to come along, rack up a million social media followers, have something or be anything else than what and who we are right now.

I’m calling BS on that self-limiting story. I’m telling you that whatever you want, you can decide to call it into your life today at this very moment.

It only takes two words: I am.

Whatever follows these words will find you, and show up in your life, so be very conscious and deliberate about what you attach I am to.

For example, if you find yourself constantly saying, “I am so tried, frustrated, confused, broke, lonely, heartbroken, sad, angry.” I don’t need to know you to know what your life looks and feels like. I bet it’s pretty tiring, frustrating, confusing, lacking, lonesome, heartbreaking, sad and upsetting. Am I right?

That’s because when you say I am…, you’re inviting in whatever you attach to it. In other words, you are giving it permission to be in your life (good or bad).

What if instead you said, “I am so excited, happy, free, healthy, loving, abundant, valuable, smart, kind, attractive, supported and safe.” I can only imagine how much better you would feel and how different your life would look.

This isn’t about lying to yourself and saying, “I am in perfect health,” when really you are sick. Today, for example, I am under the weather, but I’m not focusing on that. I keep saying, “I am so lucky to get to spend the day in my robe writing  blogs and doing work that I hope inspires others to feel empowered.

I am empowered. I am honoring my body with rest and nutritious food. I am thankful for my cozy home to create in. I am blessed with beautiful friends and family. I am happy.”

You get the idea. So while physically I may not be 100%, I still feel really great! And by feeling great, I naturally attract more great things into my life. I can say this with confidence because I am witness to it day in and day out.

That’s the powerful thing about the Law of Attraction, it is constantly working whether you believe in it or not. You can choose whether you want to curse or bless your life.

Try it out for yourself today. Once you become more conscious of your thoughts, you will begin to see patterns and how you can clean them up, and attract what you actually want into your life. Remember, you are in control and have all the power. When you blame, judge or make excuses, you are giving all of your power away. No Bueno!

What do you want to invite into your life today?

What or who do you want to let go of?

I’ll give you an example. I was talking to a dear friend who is trying to get pregnant. Instead of thinking and saying, “I’m too old to have a child, it’s so hard, it’s so expensive, I’m so scared, what if this bad thing or that bad thing happens, I’m so frustrated, I’m so overwhelmed, sad, etc.”

What if the new story my friend created was, “It is so easy to get pregnant, and so fun to try. I love all the quality time I get to spend with my husband. I am so healthy, feel great, and invite our new baby into our lives with open arms. I cannot wait to meet him or her. Wow, trying to get pregnant is so fun and easy. I am so happy!”

Even just typing this made me happy! Can you feel the joy behind the language, thoughts and feelings?

Some people tell me, “Well, it’s hard to say positive things about myself, my work, my partner, etc.”

Are you telling me it’s easy to feel like crap all the time?!

I think we can all decide to choose again, and lean towards joy and what makes us feel good rather than live in fear and be miserable. Life is meant to be enjoyable! Let’s enjoy it!

The best part? The key to enjoying life doesn’t cost a dime.

We just have to consciously choose what we attach I am to.

I am thankful for all of you. Have a beautiful day!

Why Everything, Even Tragedy, Is Happening For You

“No experience really goes wasted. A true understanding is to see the events of life this way. You are here for my benefit, though rumor paints you otherwise and everything is turned to one’s advantage when he greets a situation like this. You are the very thing I was looking for. Truly whatever arises in life is the right material to bring about your growth and the growth of those around you. Everything contains a special purpose and a hidden blessing. What then could be strange or arduous when all of life is here to greet you like an old and faithful friend.” 

~Marcus Aurelius

Every day (if we are lucky) we wake up, get up out of bed and go about our days. We have to keep going to bed, sleep and get rest in order to wake up again and again. We all know this.

What I’ve recently discovered though is that we also need to be woken up again and again while we are physically awake, living our lives day to day.

Recently, I got a big wake up call when I lost three of my main modeling clients and therefore the majority of my income. In the process, I realized I was placing so much of my self worth in my career, and whether or not clients validated me by booking me for their print campaigns.

I translated losing clients to not being worthy enough as a model or person. Yikes!

Working through these issues literally woke me up. I truly understood not just intellectually, but now energetically and emotionally that our self worth comes ONLY from the inside—nothing outside of ourselves can ever give us the joy and validation we seek and desire.

This perspective shift, which is what a miracle is, saved my life, and I thought because I had been woken up, I awake and good to go.

Then on October 26th, 2015, one of the most important people in my life, jumped off a bridge in Pasadena, committing suicide out of blue, coming as a complete shock to us all. Nothing could ever prepare me for the debilitating sadness, anger, confusion and grief that would accompany the days, weeks and months that followed.

While talking to a mentor about my depression and the grieving process, she looked at me and said, “This is all happening to wake you up.”

Wake me up? But I’m already awake! I’m wide awake!

She said, “We have to keep waking up again and again. We must keep waking up if we want to grow.”

It wasn’t easy, but slowly I began to see that there are spiritual lessons in our traumas—gifts, if you will, in the form of deeper self love, care, respect, creativity, power and purpose.

In my pain, I have found spiritual lessons, and have been given the tools to help improve the lives of others (as well as my own) by talking and writing about my experiences and creating a community of like-minded individuals to share their stories, heal, grow and wake up!

I have found deeper meaning to the pain, and have developed an even stronger faith in myself and the Universe. I see how everything is perfect, and happening for me and my highest good, not the good of my ego. I trust in that, even when it seems impossible to do so.

I appreciate my life in a profound new way, feeling truly grateful when I wake up every morning to another day where I can choose to be and create whatever I desire.

I have been forced to look at my life, and redefine my definitions of success and self worth.

For me, it is the quality of my relationships, most notably the one with myself. It is peace of mind, being gentle with myself and others, having a kind heart even when it is challenging. It is living every day with courage, confidence, authenticity, vulnerability and joy. It is looking in the mirror and being proud of the gorgeously flawed woman staring back at me, because if nothing else, I am brave enough to be myself.

Now that is a gift!

How do you define success and self worth? I’d love to hear from you!
