First Trimester Tips & Tricks: How to Survive Nausea and Morning Sickness

First Trimester Tips & Tricks: How to Survive Nausea and Morning Sickness

In the movies, pregnant women get sick maybe once…

And it’s usually cute and/or funny…and then in the next scene she’s 4 months pregnant battling some other cute pregnancy symptom.

WRONG!

Don’t f*cking believe it, its a lie!

Hahah ok yes I know that some women do make it through their pregnancies without ever facing that morning sickness demon, but for those of us unlucky enough to find our heads in the toilet several times a day…here are some tips, tricks, & hacks for morning sickness, nausea, vomiting, and generally feeling like crap!

7 Moms Share Their Stories: Anxiety, Depression, & Mental Health in Pregnancy

7 Moms Share Their Stories: Anxiety, Depression, & Mental Health in Pregnancy

One of the most surprisingly difficult parts of pregnancy has been my mental state.

Seriously…I did not expect this!

Before I got pregnant I just assumed that it would be this magical time in my life. Little did I know, that your mind actually goes through almost as many changes as your body during pregnancy.

So for those who have experience mental health issues before (or even those who haven’t) new issues might crop up!

What helped me the most? Hearing that other women go through it too. Because then a little click happened in my brain and I was able to see these problems not as problems with myself, but as just another strange, and or even debilitating pregnancy symptom.

3 Easy Steps to Create Life-Changing Good Habits

3 Easy Steps to Create Life-Changing Good Habits

we only get one shot at this

You know the whole life thing. And I’ve seen so many people waste their time thinking that their lives have to be a certain way.

Or that the only way to survive is to stay stuck where you are in life. Like that job is the only way you can make money. Or that person is the only one who will make you happy.

The truth is, that the big changes that we secretly want, are 100% possible.

They lie just beyond 3 super easy to comprehend, yet slightly harder to make happen concepts:

  1. Goals

  2. Habits

  3. The Subconscious Mind

Today, in this article, I’m gonna walk you through these three concepts so you can ultimately make the big changes you want to make in your life.

Like, where is your career heading? Are you in a job because it feels safe?

What about those talents you’ve had since birth, that you’ve never really developed? A book you want to write? A song you want to sing?

It’s all possible, it just takes a lot of determination. Notice I didn’t say “a little bit” I said a lot, because that’s what it takes.

Why Setting Goals is Useless Without First Changing Your Habits

Why Setting Goals is Useless Without First Changing Your Habits

I love new years.

And I love spring cleaning…and setting new goals in the fall.

Basically I love any excuse to set new goals & start afresh.

But there would always be this pattern in my life. I’d get really stoked about my new goals, write them down, maybe even make a vision board or two, but then a few months down the road…I would find myself back at start…do not pass go…do not collect 200$.

It took me a while to figure this sort of obvious thing out:

Just writing down your goals doesn’t mean you’ll actually acheive them.

How to Change Your Life Using the Power of Your Habits

How to Change Your Life Using the Power of Your Habits

If you’re like me, setting goals is a monthly habit.

But if you’re also like me….they don’t always work out.

Sometimes I write them down, sometimes I even make a plan to reach those goals…you know…like daily, weekly, and monthly habits.

Only to find that by next month nothing has changed. I’m back to square one, and things aren’t really any different.

It took me a while to figure out what was going wrong.

And when I finally did, things changed. Because I wasn’t just writing down those daily, weekly, and monthly habits. I was building them into my life in a methodical way that meant my goals really did come true.

In this article I’m gonna break down:

  1. How to understand habits

  2. How to change your habits

  3. How to ultimately change your life using small, daily habits

How Your Subconscious Mind Might Be Sabotaging Your Goals

How Your Subconscious Mind Might Be Sabotaging Your Goals

If you’re wondering what the hell your subconscious mind has to do with losing 17lbs, or writing that book you’ve always wanted to write, you’re probably not alone!

That’s where I come in…

A year ago I was suffering from a slew of bad habits, but have since learned to rock some amazing systems to make sh*t happen in my life and business.

I dove deep into my subconscious mind, guys it was scary in there, and now it’s what I teach, because it really revolutionized my life.

So my question to you now is….what’s your biggest goal?

Close your eyes, yes right now, and just let the first image that comes to your mind show up.

What was it?

Did it surprise you, or is this something you’ve known that you wanted for a long time?

Either way…there is only one path to reaching that goal, and that is to make small daily changes with the help of your subconscious mind.

How to Get Clients Using Your #1 Business Asset: Your Intuition

How to Get Clients Using Your #1 Business Asset: Your Intuition

Have you ever paid for an expensive course thinking that it would revolutionize your business?

Like you’d be a millionaire…or at least making 6 figures in the next 90 days or whatever.

Then you get into the course feeling really fired up about it!

Put things on your calendar.

Fill up your to-do list.

Start dreaming about how you’re going to spend that money….etc.

Only to then find yourself, two months into it, extremely overwhelmed with the products you have to purchase to make it happen, or the difficult things the course is asking you to do, or your own mind telling you that it’s impossible.

And then you find yourself 6 months down the road, the course half-finished and a couple of serious attempts at “making instagram work” or “booking out your practice.”

Am I saying that online courses are useless?

Well…yes and no…but mostly no.

Rose Quartz - Why, When, and How to Use Rose Quartz Crystals

Rose Quartz - Why, When, and How to Use Rose Quartz Crystals

This post is going to serve as my open love letter to rose quartz...a crystal that I orginally shunned because of it's popularity!

Now...it's my absolute favorite crystal ever.

Rose quartz, pictured below, is a light pink form of quartz that you can find in most jewlery shops, crystal shops, and yoga stores. 

Like I mentioned earlier, I kind brushed off rose quartz because it was so popular, and I didn't really see it as a powerful stone...more like just pretty and around a lot of influencer's necks.

Boy was I wrong.

In fact I credit this stone with some of the deepest, and most honest talks between my husband and I. 

Read more about its uses, where to find it, how to wear it, where to put it, and which chakra & zodiac sign it's associated with.

Is Money Spiritual? Is Wanting Money Bad?

Is Money Spiritual? Is Wanting Money Bad?

MONEY IS SPIRITUAL

When we were born onto this earth, and our souls took the form of a human body for the next 60-100 years, we also took on the responsibility of caring for our physical bodies. Because if we don’t we can’t survive.

We also, when we came into corporeal form took on the laws of our universe and one of the laws is the Law of Gender (or the Law of Polarity also works) and therefore each of us has both masculine and feminine energy in us.

We have the survival instinct…so yeah we gotta survive!

But on a larger scale, we were meant to live abundant lives. Our natural state is a state of abundance, where we’re thriving and giving and able to share our spirituality and our gifts & talents.

I mean let’s look at it through the lense of self-care which has a similar function.

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “put your own oxygen mask on before helping others,” why is this necessary? Because if you don’t you die!

Same thing with self-care, if you don’t take care of yourself you get burnt-out, crabby, helpless, and hopeless.

And hey! Same things with money! If you are constantly worried about how you’re going to pay for your next meal…then you won’t be able to show up and serve.

Money has a million functions in our lives..and those don’t necessarily have anything to do with being greedy or selfish, things like paying our bills, paying for healthcare, pet care etc.

And even things that could be considered slightly more “greedy” like getting a massage, or hiring someone to clean the house, or taking a vacation all have spiritual purposes. Self-care anyone?!?

Money is love.

How to Start an Essential Oil Collection

How to Start an Essential Oil Collection

You might have heard of these things called essential oils…

...and you might have even heard of the benefits they can bring you!

But...if you're like me just a year ago you're probably wondering where in the hell to start!

Because it can be a little bit overwhelming to see all the essential oil options out there...like what is therapeutic grade, how important is organic, and which of the hundreds of essential oils should I actually invest in.

Chakras. Essential Oils. This was like a foreign language to me just a few years ago...but since I began seriously developing my spiritual practice...i.e. healing my energy and power centers, I've dove head first into the world of aromatherapy.

I mean like logically I pretty much thought that essential oils just smelled good. But they can do a lot more than that...like my favorite essential oil blend "perspective" it can make you cry just by opening it up for the first time and smelling it.

Because aromatherapy can actually change the chemicals in our brains, they can teach us to release pain, actually release seratonin, or at least just a smile. 

So that's why I'm here today...to help you learn about essential oils.

Well I'm hoping to help you get some clarity today with a very basic explanation of the few things you'll need to keep in mind when you're purchasing essential oils, some of their uses, and which essential oils would be good for a beginner. 

Don't worry tho we're gonna take this one step at a time!! <3
