Make It Happen, Captain

“Such a simple concept, yet so true: that which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our own destiny. Be it through intention or ignorance, our successes and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves.” ― Garth Stein

This quote really speaks to me as I think about all the things I wish to make happen and manifest in 2015. We are really in control of fates, the captains of our souls. We have the amazing power to become happier, healthier, abundant, write a book, paint a masterpiece, go to school, and more. We just don’t realize this awesome opportunity at times. We need a little shove. A little coaxing if you will.

What intentions will you manifest this year? How will you make sh*t happen and really give yourself the push to break through your comfort zone and grow? 2015 is your year. Your blank slate. Grab that paint brush and create your masterpiece.

Tune into my latest vlog about Manifesting your Intentions in 2015.

“Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass – to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that.” ― Anthon St. Maarten

Bursting Through the Murkiness

“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.”Masaru Emoto,

As I start to really focus on growing in my passion for cooking, healing and beyond I am realizing how hard it can be. Legit, we have to go through some sh*t and deal with haters and that sucks! But I am realizing that when we really want something or have a desire to fulfill our wildest dreams we HAVE to come across resistance or as I like to call it: murky water. To achieve success or live a thriving life, we may need a little nudge or a little resistance to make sure we really are all about our desires.  I mean, after all the universe gives us room to grow and what is growth without a little game of tug-of-war. This test is ultimately essential. It checks to see if we are ready to burst forth and through the muddy waters and blossom as beautiful lotuses.

Tune into my latest video and hear what I have to say about this topic and be one of the first to hear about one of my new projects!

Chakras and Crystals

Last weekend I dedicated time to education and empowerment. I signed up for a Chakras and Crystal workshop at my yoga center (which has sadly closed down…I shall find a new home soon enough). Though I have practiced yoga for quite sometime I am not fully familiar with the chakras and how their blockages or even being overly open influence the body. I do know that these incredible energy centers help us in yogic practice to become more balanced, aligned and wholesome beings.

The chakra is a doorway. These are doorways that lead you into other dimensions. But you have to focus on them to the exclusion of everything else.”-

Though I am open to a lot I am also a skeptic about many things. I have moments where I question everything and really wonder what the rational explanation is for it. I made the conscious decision to be open to the experience especially since I was feeling exceptionally drawn to the workshop. I am in the process of trusting the universe and opening up to receiving the messages my intuition provides. Interesting, right?

Each of the seven chakras references different dimensional planes. It is a turnstile that leads us into different dimensions. As the kundalini rises, the knowledge and powers of those dimensions will begin to come to you.”-

So this class was not only filled with an immense positive and healing energy, it was doused in the energy of willingness to learn. I walked in and instantly felt empowered. I have always been interested in crystals. I have so many in my room with NO idea what they are for or what they could do.

I volunteered to have stones laid upon my chakras and found out areas I need to work on. How cool is that? Having these stones placed upon my body sent this cooling sensation from my toes to the crown of my head. I felt calm, safe and surrounded by love and healing. I left the workshop feeling more aware of my body than I was before. I have always know that I am sensitive to energy but now this is clearer than ever.

I am promising myself to be true to my intuition, to listen to my body and to check in with myself to find out what exactly I need.

When your mind is clear and your third eye is open, you can see and know things that are taking place thousands of miles away from you.”-


Peace, love, light and No beef.
