When I first began striving to have my own healing career I hit a lot of snags. I found that I’d get a lot of momentum going toward something, then it would sort of fizzle out, I’d lose motivation, or it wouldn’t seem to go anywhere.

I have been studying spirituality, healing, metaphysics and self development ideas since early childhood, yet something always seemed to get in my way. 

The simple realization that upleveled my life is:

Learn from the people who already are where you want to be. Stop taking the advice of those who are nowhere near where you want to be. 

I had heard this over and over again as I studied and grew but it didn’t sink in until about 4 years ago when I was listening to John Assaraf interview highly successful people. As I listened to him say this message that I’d heard from so many sources, I realized that I had been taking advice from all the wrong sources for years. 

I would study, practice, and reach a place where my intuition was guiding me, but then as we all do, I would excitedly share my plans with my friends and family. The people in my life are wonderful, and supportive, and everything they were telling me was because of the intent to help me, but none of those amazing people were doing what I wanted to do.

No one that was giving me advice had their own business, none were in the helping field, none of them understood the things that I had been learning for years, and I realized that when I listened to their advice I would lose my shine, my drive, and my intuition. 

I’m not telling you to ignore all of your loved ones, I just want you to be aware of what advice you are taking. Is the person giving you financial advice well off, or are they broke? Is the person giving you relationship advice in a truly loving and fulfilled relationship? Are the people telling you how to move forward in your life living the kinds of lives that you really want to live?

I was lucky enough to meet my mentor, Marisa Peer, in person and study under her when I knew that her method was how I wanted to help people. But before I met her I filled my mind with other teachings. I found successful, authentic people that resonated with me and I read their books, I listened to their interviews, I watched their videos. I began to put more credibility behind the advice of the millionaires, the blissful, loving entrepreneurs and healers that inspired me. 

I kept my intuition strong by not asking for advice from those who were not where I wanted to be, and by taking it with a big fat grain of salt when they offered it to me without my asking. 

I trust my self now, and I have found that the more I trust my own intuition and the lessons that resonate with me from people who inspire me, the more my joy and success expand. Since I had that simple realization, my business, my spirituality, my joy have all grown so quickly, it is amazing!

So trust yourself and listen to the advice of the people who are already where you want to be.

I hope this helps and that you have a beautiful day!

Hello lovely!

This blog is going to be a place for stories, tips, and info about how to live a fantastic, fulfilling life without negative thoughts and behaviors holding us back.

I’ll begin by sharing that I’ve been in the dark. Though I spent years studying psychology, meditation, and spiritual practices to heal depression and PTSD, I always fell back into it.

It was not a good feeling to know everything I needed to do to get better, but not have the drive to do them.

It wasn’t until I was at the Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy live training that I figured out why it kept coming back.

But I’ll get to that in a bit.

First I want to tell you about how I met Marisa Peer.

I have spent years of my life learning how to heal my own depression, and it was my mission to find a way to help others in a quick, yet profound way.

I felt the call to go to Mindvalley Reunion in August, 2017, even though I had never spent that much money on myself. I went, yet when I arrived I was at another low point. I wanted to die.

Then Marisa Peer went onstage and hypnotized the whole crowd of over 800 people.

Her voice brought me to a realization, and then to a renewal. I opened my teary eyes feeling like I would be alright, feeling self love creeping back into my heart.

Then I went to the bathroom and fixed my lipstick and saw that someone had written “I am enough,” Marisa’s famous message to all of us, on the mirrors. The lady next to me said, “Isn’t it great?”

“Yeah, I want it on all of my mirrors,” I replied.

And then Marisa came out of the stall behind me and said, “I think it should be on every mirror, all over the world.”

I had a big fan girl moment, but I pushed past it and got the courage to talk to her. When I told her that she had me rethinking my current school plans, she told me more about her course and I knew that I had to be there.

I had absolutely no idea how I’d pay for the course, especially since my fiancé and I had to find a new house at the same time, but I let all my fears and doubts leave and just moved forward knowing that I would be there.

And when I was there, I got to have a live session with Marisa in front of my fellow students and she helped me find the reason why depression kept knocking at my door year after year. It was life changing, phenomenal, and more than I could have hoped for.

Now I am filled with such joy that I’ve been blessed enough to have these healings for myself and even more thrilled that I am able to help others in the way that she helped me. Marisa Peer, and her fantastic hypnotherapy course changed my life. 

I am still going to fan girl over Marisa, because not only is she an incredible healer, she’s powerfully confident, yet so humble and loving. It was an honor to learn from her and her fabulous staff.

I’ll link to her site below if you’d like to know more about her and the transforming work that she does.
