In order to create the best possible life for yourself, you must listen to the guidance of your inner wisdom. In order to do that effectively, you must learn to 1) trust that guidance unequivocally; 2) surrender to the current of the universe, even when that current becomes turbulent or wants to carry you in a different direction; and 3) detach from clinging on to any specific outcome. In this episode, we explore how to master these skills so you can create the life you are meant to live and become unstoppable.

Did you know that studies have revealed only 2 - 3 % of North Americans are clear about their core values? Most people make big life decisions based on societal expectations instead of their own values. We’ve all done it at some point in our lives. Conform to societal pressures, or live up to the expectations of parents, partners, and friends. Making decisions based on what we feel we should do, not what we really want to do. In today’s episode, we go through a short exercise on how to identify your core values so you can make the best decisions for yourself and live life on your terms.

In this episode, I share another spiritually guided message on the theme of love. This time we are given some directions on how we can choose to respond to challenging situations from a place of love instead of from a place of fear, anger, or frustration. When you learn to operate from a place of love, fear dissipates, and so do the blocks that prevent you from creating the life you really want.
Recently, one of my clients challenged me on a direction I gave her to go inward and ask herself the question I tell everyone they need to ask in order to find their true path, which is: “what do I really want.” My client argued that any answers that bubble up would come from the ego and therefore would be self-serving and not for the greater good. She felt frustrated because she wanted to know what she should do, not what her ego wanted her to do, and felt strongly that acting on one's wants and desires is an act of selfishness. What gold, I thought, and created an episode to unpack this. In this episode, I give you some tips to help you decipher between your “egoic” mind and your higher self and I explain how exploring what you really want and why it matters will ultimately lead you to act for the greatest good of all. Let’s dive in!
Do you have any friends who seem to take risks and yet things always work out for them? There is a good chance these people are being guided by their inner wisdom. To the outside world, these individuals may appear to just be extremely lucky. The truth is, luck favours those who are bold enough to listen to their inner wisdom. I say bold because what is involved in following this internal guidance is a willingness to step into the unknown, and most people fear taking that step. In this episode I share three tips that will help you embrace a new belief that the best is yet to come so you can more confidently step into the unknown and create more “luck" in your life.
In today’s episode, I talk about a super simple concept that has had a profound effect on my life. The idea is … everything happens in Divine Right Time. Too many of us are fixated on reaching goals and achieving our dreams within a certain timeframe, and that fixation can be the death of our dreams and a life less lived. I want you to consider this new attitude that everything happens in Divine Right Time. I’ve got a few things to say about this that will help you lean in and trust in Divine Timing and not give up on your dreams, so tune in and check it out. This is a short and sweet episode packed with punch.
Sometimes, transitions in life are exceedingly hard. Letting go of what we know, and what we are comfortable with can be fear-inducing and can keep us clinging on to things, behaviors, jobs, or relationships that are holding us back from stepping into the best version of who we are and the best vision of our life. In this episode, I share 5 things you can do that will help you make transitions in your life with greater ease.
Have you ever turned to God, The Universe, Source looking for guidance or some sign to help you along your path and received nothing in response? If so, this episode is for you.

Often, however, we aren’t tuned in properly or are trying to rush the process. Slow down, listen to this episode and learn some insights that will help you find the answers you are looking for.

Do you know what triggers you? More importantly, do you know why? We all get triggered, it’s part of being human. What’s wonderful about triggers (if you could call a trigger wonderful) is that they play an important role in helping us to understand ourselves better. When we understand what triggers us and why we are able to make conscious choices that are aligned with our higher self. Those choices ultimately lead to a more joyful life. In this episode, we explore how to take charge of our triggers so they don’t take charge of us.
