I rarely post feedback from my clients publicly, but I thought this was a great one to share from Tamara on Twitter because it highlights how one session can be lifechanging and bring clarity - even if it takes awhile to absorb the insights.
In our conversation together 3 years ago, we talked about her life purpose and what she was here to practice and learn. If you've read her book on forgiveness or her chapter in Modern Heroine Soul Stories, you know she has not had an easy path at all: loss, mulitple deaths of loved ones, depression, rage, domestic violence, sexual abuse and heartbreak.
But simply understanding the bigger picture can help calm and ease the heart, mind, and spirit.
(Start reading from the bottom.)
If I can help you get to a deeper understand of what you're here to learn, heal, and know about yourself, please check out my current offerings here.

Whether you are looking for clients or book readers, you need to know about the sales process that drives people to say YES to you.
We'll talk about the 3 types of leads that you will encounter as you share your business + books with a growing audience.
Plus, I'll share how to be aware of when others are trying to sell to you so you can determine - objectively - what an effective sales strategy experience is (hello, someone relatable and honest) and what is not (yikes, those dang intrusive solicitors in the mall!).

One of my earliest formative experiences was the power of giving during the holiday season. My two brothers and I would buy Christmas gifts for kids our own age, wrap them up, and drop them off at a local organization. My heart was full with how doing something so easy for us would result in huge smiles for another on Christmas morning.
Conscious advocacy and volunteering my time has always been an ongoing passion. I’ve donated my time and marketing expertise to help a local hunger non-profit elevate their profile in the community and increase their fundraising efforts. A friend and I volunteered regularly at a soup kitchen on Sunday mornings; we chopped veggies for chili, made sandwiches with donated ingredients, and helped serve meals to a long line of homeless citizens. Through community outreach efforts, I’ve stood in front of groups of young women educating them about sexual violence prevention, and facilitated sensitive conversations about rape, power, and control.
As an ESL teacher, I’ve volunteered in classrooms to help international adult students learn English, and I have worked with very basic learners all the way up to more advanced groups. I’ve sat across from women eagerly learning colors for the first time, as well as the names of rooms in their houses. I’ve been put on the spot by very curious advanced students wanting to understand English idioms, such as why “the ball is in your court” or “that’s the way the cookie crumbles” or what it means “to catch somebody red-handed." You think you know English well - until you teach it!
My conscious advocacy turned global in graduate school as I chose my Master’s thesis to focus on the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, which are eight quantifiable and measurable goals aimed at reducing extreme global poverty.
Every country on the planet and all of the world’s leading institutions have agreed to participate and/or support these eight goals. My deep-dive research, which was conducted back in 2006 and 2007, revealed many amazing projects that are happening around the globe, including the Millennium Villages Project that helps rural villages transition to sustainable, integrated life solutions they can maintain on their own. Currently, 500,000 people in 14 sites across 10 countries are involved in this project.
The Millennium Development Goals are not well known because they’re not ‘sexy’ or driven by a celebrity, but they are transforming the world. Right now. As you sit here reading this, people are receiving mosquito nets to prevent the spread of malaria; tapping into fresh water for their village; giving birth in healthy conditions, and learning about their human rights for the first time. Amazing, right?
So giving back and helping our global sisters and brothers in practical ways has always been a priority. Even when life was incredibly busy and I didn’t have room for one more thing on my plate, I was searching for an organization that I felt a strong connection to based on this criteria:
- Efforts resulted in sustainable, practical life changes;
- Personal connections of some sort were encouraged and developed;
- People who are genuinely interested and committed to improving their lives and creating their dreams are supported.
Women for Women International is an organization that meets my personal criteria and also supports the efforts of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.
Being selected as an Ambassador is an incredible honor, and deeply inspires me to spread the word about their incredible program.
I'll be sharing more success stories and updates through email and social media, and hopefully inspiring YOU to participate in our global efforts as well. Online events and fundraising goals will also be shared.
We are very lucky to live in a time when we have so much to be grateful for. And we're blessed to be able to support others in improving their lives and creating their dreams, too!

We have multiple energies to play with thoughout our lives that support our ongoing growth. We are gifted with understanding them at higher levels of consciousness, especially the fact that love and abundance are always present within us - but we have to connect with them fully.
Listen in as Lavandar, Arielle, and I converse about my book The Unlimited Sparks of a Bonfire and how it supports our spiritual growth now on Starseed Radio Academy.
In this radio show, we discuss soul imprints, karmic healing, spiritual understanding, and more, as well as the writing process of this book.

A Slow Blink of New Consciousness
The Sun is the light, energy and pulse of our planet, providing us with warmth, vitality, and LIFE that structures our daily world and patterns. In astrology, the Sun is Masculine, fire, self-identity, creation, movement, public, outer world, ego and life growth. The Sun is your sense of Self and where we are each developing more of our I AM identity in this lifetime in order to contribute to the collective.
Conversely, the Moon is Feminine, private, internal, and emotional. She rises every evening to balance our energy fields and bring us inward to ourselves. The Moon reveals what is happening within us and to connect us with what is hidden within our own subconscious so we can know our hearts and needs more fully. The Moon is nurturing, open, inviting, and wise.
As the Moon makes its way across the Sun for the Total Solar Eclipse at 29 degrees Leo, the Masculine is hidden by the Feminine. The Moon darkens the light so we can sit in a place of deeper wisdom and reveal what we need to feel right now.
Solar Eclipses happen twice a year all over the world, so they are not unique in occurrence, yet this one is extra potent in how the United States is being invited into the depths of its self and to collectively ask:
Who are we in the dark?
What are our shadows that we need to see and heal in order to begin anew?
The Solar Eclipse is offering us an opportunity to investigate:
When the light is removed, and all is As It Is, what does my heart say?
What does my heart feel?
What - and who - is in my heart?
The focus is of this event has been on the Sun - Look at me! Look at how I shine! - yet the true spectacle of the event is the Moon as she slowly makes her way across the brightest light in the solar system. Underneath how you "show up" in the word, the truth of your intentions or what you need may be hidden. But how do you feel and are you willing to own those sacred parts of yourself more.
This is a New Moon in Leo at 28/29 degrees that is inviting you to go deeper into your heart's shadows and the needs you have hidden from yourself. Did parts of you get buried under shame, guilt, betrayal, heartbreak, and heartache? Have you allowed those experiences to over-shadow who you are now and what you need now? Are you ready to rise up from those experiences with greater power and strength?
A mystical, cosmic event such as this can reset our individual pulse's with the pulse of the Universe and activate deeper consciousness. As the skies get darker and the temperature drops, we see further into the galaxy and millions of stars will be revealed. We will see how our tiny place in the cosmos matters and yet what are we actively doing to create the life, planet, and experiences that we want?
The Sun is being eclipsed by the Moon over the United States as a new beginning point of creation and risk-taking. The last time this occurred was in 1776 - the date of the U.S. Constitution. So if you were looking for any kind of significance to this event, there ya go.
I feel this New Moon Solar Eclipse to be a slow blink of new consciousness where we take 2 full minutes to tune out the ego and tune in to the heart on a deeper level.
Only you can do that for yourself, but collectively, we are each fortified with new levels of confidence, courage, and connection to your heart's needs. This is not mental; you cannot think your way through it.
You are being invited to look at what you are holding within your heart space, and to receive new light around it when the Sun begins to shine again.
