Speaking from the heart…really change your life?

Good Morning, Gorgeous!

Happy Thursday.

Can you believe Christmas is under a week away?

Yesterday I was freaking out and headed to the mall midday to finish off some shopping.  Yes, I tend to leave things to the last minute.  However, I’m happy to report that most of my shopping is complete and wrapped!

20141217-220550.jpg

I came home after shopping and fresh baking was ready…it is OFFICIALLY Christmas!

20141217-220614.jpg

I want to talk to you about something, I literally sat here for awhile staring at the screen unsure what to write to you…

I decided that it’s important to speak from the heart and express how I feel and be ok to be in this flow right now.  While I’m typing this I feel some fears.

Can you really change your life??  This is a question I asked myself a few years ago.

Heck, if I’m helping you and others on a daily basis be open and authentic what better way than on a blog that hundreds of thousands read in a month, right?!

I feel confused.
I feel lost.

When I started iheartwellness in 2009 it was because I was crippled with food allergies and I needed an outlet, I knew it was my time to start helping people who battled too.

Since then my life has radically changed and I no longer have allergies, I’m no longer a vegan, and I actually for the first time in all of my life….love myself.

I’m here to teach this.

Listen, I went from working full time at a software company, being laid off, flying down a downward spiral very quickly, broke as a joke, hating myself and confused at how to dig myself out of a deep hole to learning how to be comfortable to ask for help, got a coach, found myself, fell in love with myself again, started businesses from home, broke 6 figures from home, gained tremendous confidence, became a life / business coach and ownership of my life and packed up to move to California!

For years I played small. When I started blogging I was small.

For years I was living with FEAR that ruled my life.  Not anymore….thank god!

I guess a I write this I still fear that rejection piece popping up, the same one I became familiar with as I built businesses.  The same one I embraced as I took my coaching course, the good news is I know I’m feeling it and I can work with it.  I love you and the readers that come here and I HOPE and pray you enjoy the content and coaching I give you here.

My mission is to help you FEARLESSLY live a life on purpose.  My mission is to help you connect within and know you are guided and have the answers you need.  I’m here to give you the tools to unlock those limiting beliefs that have kept you in a headlock for way too long!  

Will I still share recipes?  Heck yes! Treat Friday, baby!!  Will I still talk about health and wellness?  Yes!

I have a goal for the new year to tone up more because I’ve always wanted more muscle on! I’m also in a health and wellness company so it’s kinda my “job”, but I really know my calling is to help you get the help and the tools you need to success, create your reality, heal the parts of yourself you’ve pushed aside and to get you into radical self-love!

If you dig it and dig me, thank you!

Let’s rock this wild ride of life together!!

Anyways, I think I’ve been needing to voice that I’m turning a new leaf here and I’m not afraid to admit that I heart wellness is growing! We’re growing so quickly that people want to coach here now too….can you imagine a whole “I Heart Wellness Coaching Platform”?!?

Yes!!  Coaches….here….together!

20141217-220643.jpg

Ahhhh I feel better now knowing now that change flows and it happens.

If you or anyone you know would love to learn more about how you can live a happy and fulfilled life through your own connection and self-love, through breaking through old beliefs and gain massive confidence and love,  please share this blog or my FB page with them!

I’d love that you are apart of this transformation…..thank you!

ALSO – before I go grab a coffee with my love, if you have a QUESTION for me {life, spiritual, business, fears, you name it!} comment below or send me an email because I’d love to answer it for you and give you the tool you need!!

I’m starting a Q&A Video Series this coming new year a long with a lot of LIVE calls you can listen to ;)

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

You are amazing, don’t forget it.

Date Night! Awake: The Life Of Yogananda

Happy Wednesday, Gorgeous!

I woke this morning with a bit of a freight….it is December 17th today and I am not done my Christmas shopping yet!!

I laid in bed rolling through my list and started to sweat. Today, after my holiday baking with my mom, will got to the mall and finish my shopping. I must get nice and caffeinated first.

Last night I was wayyyyy out past my bedtime walking around Downtown Vancouver, checking out all the hotels and their beautiful trees. When I worked downtown I would love walking the streets and seeing all the twinkling lights and trees, it’s so beautiful! Ryan and I had tickets to see the movie Awake: The Life of Yogananda so we made it downtown a bit earlier to explore!

20141217-071324.jpg

Oh! My Spirit Junkie top came in just in time for me to wear it to this movie!

20141217-071421.jpg

Gabrielle Bernstein had these awesome tops for sale on her Facebook page and hello, I’m a junkie, so I bought one and since it came in and I’ve worn it for the first time…people are asking me all over the place where I got it! I think it’s a hit and she should have them on her site permanently!

Anyways, back to Yogananda.

20141217-071633.jpg

When we lived in Del Mar, CA the Self Realization Center was about a 10 min drive from our condo. We would go almost daily to the meditation gardens and on Sundays to the morning service, I started to soak up all of Yoganandas teaching!

20141217-071844.jpg

I bought all his little Life Series Books that taught me everything from how to be Successful, Abundant, how to pray to how to change my beliefs and I would study them every morning. Not only would I read them, I’d apply the teaching and it was like nothing else!

Yogananda believes the we hold all the answers and that God lives in our spine, so when we meditate our answers come through us, we have all the ability in the world to live our dreams when understand the true power behind believe, will power and trust!

It was awesome to watch his story. I am in awe of anyone who knows that this power and trust is so deeply within them and I love that he brought his way of living to America in 1920! Can you imagine speaking about consciousness in 1920!?

For any of my spiritual friends, if you have not seen this movie, check out when your city is playing it and go! Or checkout his book, the Autobiography of a Yogi!

The theater was full of yoga teachers who wanted to soak up as much as they could…. Yogananda brought yoga to the west :)

So after a fabulous movie, we walked the streets some more and called it a night at midnight!

20141217-072617.jpg

Here’s the truth…I‘m usually in bed at 10pm!!! So this morning I’m feeling a bit loopy and I can only imagine how well I’ll be throwing the weights around this morning….but here goes nothing I’m going to the gym!

Then I’ll start the baking!!

Question: have you started your Christmas baking?

Have you read any of Yoganandas work?

How to Deal with Negative People {Holiday Edition}

howtodealwithnegativepeople

Happy Monday, Gorgeous!

I hope you dove head first into your glorious weekend and had a lot of fun?  5:30am on Sunday I was cleaning up dog barf from my bedsheets.  Yes, I had no idea Hudson was even in our bed and not once, but twice, he was sick in our bed.  Gross.

I tell ya, this was the cherry on top to a pretty “wild ride” of a week.  Come to think of it, the past couple weeks have been a trip!
You know me, I won’t lie….I love my trips.  I love digging into the root of them and pinpoint where my triggers start.  I’m like an internal detective, always peeking into dark corners and 9 times out of 10, I find some gold that lights up my world!

On a side note; maybe I should start intro’ing these with “Good Morning Wild Riders” or “Trip Sisters”…..haha!  Life is a trip!  I love it!

This ties in perfectly to what I want to talk to you about today…..

As you are well aware of, loving or stressed out over is, the holidays are right around the corner!

Ahhhhh…..the holidays.  So wonderful.  My sister comes home in just a few days for Christmas and I am SO excited.

I was recently asked by a reader, how she can deal with negative people that she will see a lot of over Christmas.

Questions like this fire me up {in a good way} inside because there are a couple different ways to approach this.

Can you relate?!  Do you have family members or friends that bring you down?  Do you feel whenever you share your vision or what you’re doing someone will cut you down and it will set you right off?!

It’s totally ok to admit to it.

If this is something you are stressed over this holiday season, let me help you!

How to Deal with Negative People

Take a step back and ask yourself; “Why do I find ___________ negative?” and “How does this make me feel?”

I’ll be real with you, if you’re seeing that this particular person is negative or that they annoy you, let’s say they make you feel “stupid” or “less than” and it’s pissing you off.  Okay, I get it.  I know what it feels like to be triggered and pushed down by people, but the real reason this triggers you is because……..

You are thinking the same thing of yourself or others.

Here’s the deal, the universe always reflects back to you what you’re putting out.  So if at some level you think you are stupid or less than {in this example} you will attract more people to you that bring this forward or push your buttons with these wounds.  Make sense?

How you stop attracting people to you that are negative or annoying, the “button pushers” is by being completely raw with yourself and seeing that you do indeed treat yourself with the same level of negativity.  Use your journal for this!

REAL LIFE EXAMPLE:

When I used to work 9-5 jobs I would always attract bosses that were awesome.  They were awesome for the first month, super fun, easy going and easy to get along with then all of a sudden I would feel like the pushover and that I had to seek their approval.  I felt unworthy of more in my life and they would in a nice way basically tell me this.  Day after day I would be angry with the people I worked for.  I couldn’t figure out why people would be so rude and take advantage of me.  Me!  I’m the nice girl!.  What was happening was I was internally telling myself; “you’ll never amount to what they’ve created.” “you are only worth so much.” “you can not get ahead, you have no skills.” – without me even consciously aware I was repeating these messages over and over to myself, they became my habits and BOOM.  The law of attraction in full swing was presenting itself to me in my career.

Thank goodness that’s over ;)

But all joking aside, I learned a lot.

Heck, this is WHY I coach people today.

When you can look at the things you want to hide from others {your shadow self} with love and compassion, you can change your life.

So in my story above, I started to embrace that I have these limiting and negative thoughts within and decided that I could FLIP them and see the love I had as well.  When you live from your space of love, or brilliance, the world around you shifts.

Our external world reflects our internal world.  Remember that.

It’s time to witness {with love and acceptance}; What you need to learn from these “negative” people!

Ahhhhh the mirror exercise, how I love this.

In all honesty, everything is perception.  If you believe uncle joe is negative, but your mom thinks he’s the cats meow, it’s just perception.

I’m throwing a lot of truth bombs around today!

To really deal with the negative people in your life it’s time you look at what they are reflecting back to you and what you need to learn about yourself.

This holiday season I invite you to go into it with an open heart and a heart that is eager to heal itself.  You are a beautiful and passionate person, looking to have a wild life of happiness….so why not start now?!  Right??  Use your own emotions as a gage to what you need to heal and bring forward from the dark to see more of the love you have to offer and shine.

For the lovely reader that sent me this question, thank you because this has been a great reminder for myself as well.

 

I’d love to hear how you deal with negative people and if you’ll use the tips from today this season!

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies {Coconut Flour Cookies}

Happy Treat Friday, Gorgeous!

Today I have a fresh batch of chewy Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies that you are going to LOVE!

In the past, especially when I was vegan I would make my cookies and baked goods with a gluten free flour mixture that made really freaking good cookies….I still do, however when I want a daily treat, I will choose a grain free option instead.  Why?  Because I just feel the best eating as grain free as possible.

If you like the idea of “grain-free” cookies, you’ll also love the Paleo Gingersnap Cookie Recipe I shared last week!

To be honest, as I sit here, sipping my morning coffee I am already thinking of when I should have my first chocolate chip cookie today.  I think I’ll wait until after I get back from the gym, so I can really sit and enjoy each crumb ;)

paleochocolatechipcookies

Let’s be real, there is nothing “bad” for you in these paleo cookies, so I would think they would be a safe treat when you feel you need one.  These coconut flour based cookies go perfectly with coffee…..omg, do they ever!  They are sweetened with coconut sugar / palm sugar and a wee bit of pure maple syrup….minerals and vitamins for sweetness!

I’ll stop my rambling now and get right into the recipe!

DSC01091

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies {Coconut Flour Cookies}

1/3 coconut flour

2 eggs

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 tsp sea salt

2 tbsp coconut sugar

1 tbsp maple syrup

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup chocolate chips

To Make Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Preheat oven to 350.

Whisk all ingredients together, except chocolate chips.

Fold in the chocolate chips and roll cookie dough into 1″ round balls.

Place cookies on a parchment line cookie sheet and press with a fork.

Bake for 14-15 minutes or until golden brown.

{Makes 10 cookies}

DSC01089

Ok, now I’m off to the gym and bringing some cookies with me!

Spend time this weekend doing something you love and that allows you to feel connected.  That might mean you bake these cookies and share the pictures with me on Instagram or Twitter!!

Sending you love!

xxoo
Kris

P.S.  I’ve had some requests from friends on Facebook to share how they can feel more connected and “tuned in” throughout their days….especially the stressful days!  We thought it would be a fun idea to join in on certain days at a dedicated time, where we just stop and breathe for a minute or two….but we will keep each other accountable to this and check in with each other!  If you feel this would be something you’re interested in, send me a private message on Facebook!!

Date Night – Horrible Bosses 2

Happy Wednesday, Gorgeous!

Today, 13 years ago marked the day Ryan and I called ourselves a “couple”.

534247_10151816609586535_918970100_n

13 years ago, I worked at a Dental Office in the mall and this picture was at our office Christmas Party…..we were so young and wrinkle free!!  I love looking back at this picture because it really makes me enjoy much our lives have changed over the last few years.  I’m blessed to see how much I have personally changed.  I am grateful for all the up’s and downs and really love that I can be in full control of my life and where I’m headed.

To be honest, I am really grateful for my “downs”, the things I was once ashamed of have made me more whole today.

I can tell you that this makes me stronger for the clients that I work with, owning all of my past and being authentic.  It’s a journey and I’m ready for the next 13 years!!

Last night we headed out to watch Horrible Bosses 2!!

20141210-080917.jpg

I love watching funny movies.  The whole time I am in stitches laughing and it feels so good to be in that vibration!!

We packed up our healthy snacks, our Chicago Mix Popcorn, Dark Chocolate and off we went to the movies.

10675648_998128750204161_428871089382295337_n

YIKES, I had forgotten it was VS Fashion Show and I was watching my Facebook Feed blowup with Angels and Wings, I kinda wished I had at least PVR’d the fashions show….but I’ll watch pieces online today!  Ever since I was a teen I had a dream of being a VS Angel.  Gawwwww the wings, the outfits, the shoes.  I swear if I was just more confident in my early 20s I might have actually tried!  Hahah!!

Anyways, back to Horrible Bosses 2!!  It was so funny.

I feel the first one was really funny and this one was different, but also so good.  There is something about these 3 dudes together that crack me up and I love the role Jennifer Aniston plays.  Could you imagine how hard of a character that must have been for her to play?!

There were so many great parts to the movie, where I actually learned a lot for business.

The biggest lesson being you really do have to continue to go after what you want, what feels SO RIGHT to you, no matter the situation.  I’ve you’ve been pushed down or feel like a failure, you must get back up.  Start the clean eating today, start the blog post now, reach out to 3 new people today about your business, just get into flow.

If you have not yet seen the movie, go see it if you want a good laugh.  It is pretty “rude” but in a way that had me laughing the whole way through….

If you have seen the movie, I’d love to hear your thoughts of it!  I would love to hear if you picked up some great takeaways from it as well?

xxoo
Kris

P.S.  The Free Mini Break Through Coaching Sessions are FILLING up!  I’m closing the office over the holidays, so get your session booked today!!  If of course, you’re ready to have a radical life transformation in 2015!

Attract Great Opportunities & a Manifesting Meditation!

Happy Tuesday, Gorgeous!

It’s been a wild ride over the last couple weeks. Meaning I’ve felt a lot of “ups” and “downs” but I also know these waves are happening as they should at the right time.

I don’t know about you, but I trust I get the right guidance. I trust in my inner voice….even if I don’t jump at listening to it right away, but I love the sound of it…..we all have an inner voice that taps us in, roots us and gives us the right next step. It may come as a form of a feeling for you, or you might hear a whisper, either way this is your connection!

When Ryan and I go for coffee in the morning, we use this a time to journal and talk about our desires.  It’s also a great practice to tune in when you’re around other people, I actually LOVE this “test” and the universe gives me great opportunity when I’m out and about.

photo-5

So many readers and clients ask me; how they can receive or get opportunities to come into their life. I absolutely love this question and the answer is quite simple!

Actually I was eating this bag or greatly popped awesomeness thinking of this question…

20141209-091813.jpg

As strange as it might sound, food connects me and when I’m snacking I feel good….yup, I also use food to escape when things are crazy town in my mind, or when I really don’t want to do something, I’ll get up and eat…but when I eat mindfully, I’m tuned right in!  Plus I freaking love this popcorn!!!

Here’s the deal-e-o, the universe will always and IS always delivering great opportunities based on our frequency!

This is why you read so many self-help books by manifesting gurus that all you need to do is thing happy thoughts….thinking happy thoughts raises your frequency and you’ll be mirrored great things / experiences back to you….

Here’s the missing piece that not everyone tells you…or admits.  

It’s fabulous to be happy!  Everyone wants that freedom of being HAPPY, but what happens with all the emotions you feel when you’re frustrated? Angry? Upset?

People think they have to INSTANTLY push their upset aside because it will ruin their “flow” of attracting.  However, this is far from the truth.

Many peeps suggest pushing them aside like they don’t exist, but in my line of work they will always exist deep down and always pop back up until they are healed.

Soooo this can mean if you don’t feel the emotions and understand what the emotions are trying to tell you, the universe is still reflecting what you don’t want more of in your life, without you knowing it.   Why?  Because these emotions are now suppressed and still living within you.

What can happen is you feel even more frustrated because you’ve worked so hard at attracting what you want, but you’re NOT seeing the instant results because there is an underlying negative frequency you’re not quite dealing with….

Gawwwww, I know this feeling so well. It wasn’t until I saw my coach and she introduced me to Shadow Work!

Now I want you to know all you have to do to have more greatness pour into your life is to tune your frequency.
It is that simple!

If you want a fabulous career, believe you have it! Visualize it, see it, feel it….walk with the ownership! It’s liberating and freeing.

If you still feel there are pieces of yourself that hold you back, it’s time to work with these emotions so you can REALLY let the opportunity flow in!

I can go on for hours upon hours on talking about how to really live a free and happy life, but it’s in-depth.

Today, to create an abundant amount of great opportunities in your life, start working on your FREQUENCY!  You want to be vibing really high to get more of what you desire.  There is even a great meditation you can do:

Manifesting Meditation:

Sit quietly

Focus on your breath.

On the inhale breathe in what you want more of {money, love, acceptance, health, etc} and imagine what you want sticking to your skin.

Exhale.

Inhale, attract your greatness…

Exhale.

Follow this for 10 minutes.

I’d love to hear how this works for you!!  Please keep me posted :)

Would you like to know how to work on healing these limiting beliefs and emotions?  If so, comment below and I’ll share how you can and how I am :)

De-Puffing Coffee Eye Mask and Fancy Rocks!

Happy Monday, Gorgeous!

I love Monday’s!  Hello fresh week and new goals….I love you.  I mostly love them because I am that organizer that writes everything down and that makes me feel like a million bucks for some reason.

True story, my man and I went hunting for the “perfect blue inked pens” the other night so when we write in our journal, set our goals or write out our to-do lists, it feels fluid.  Are we crazy?!

Did you have a great weekend?

Before I get into the de-puffing eye mask, I’d love to fill you in on what I got up to over the weekend.

Friday night was date night!!  We went out for a nice dinner and some wine, while Ryan and I talked about our 2015 goals and really about where our business and brands are branching off to, which I could talk about for hours and trust me, when we start meeting in person, I will!

10616306_10152991638641535_8269192857223175774_n

 

This pic is me with my 9oz, super happy, and talking about my amazing coaching clients that I’ll be working with!!  If you read my previous post, my coaching practice doors are again open!

Dinner was fabulous!  I had a top sirloin and mixed veggies….a piece of warm bread and butter, because, it was a rocking Saturday night ;)

After dinner we totally were the people who hit the mall to look at the Apple store for new iPhone cases.  Mission accomplished!

Sunday was such a great day because the weather was actually nice here in Vancouver.  Normally we’re in the sloppy rain, so when the sun is out, you spend as much time as you can outdoors and doing fun things!

First off, I started my Sunday morning with de-puffing my eyes.

I did not sleep well the night before and I was tossing and turning, the dog was in and out of the bed, etc, etc.  I woke up, washed my face and noticed the bottom of my eyes looked like the top!  As I scrolled through Facebook after washing my face, I saw my friend post a pic of her with a DIY mask on her eyes to de-puff and girl, I truly believe this post was a gift from god, for me.

Screen Shot 2014-12-07 at 8.02.57 PM

 

De-Puffing Coffee Coconut Oil Eye Mask:

1 tsp coffee grounds

1/2 tsp coconut oil

Mix both together and place on your under eye area for at least 10 minutes.

I swear this coffee eye mask rocked my socks off!  Literally my eyes were so soft, de-puffed and bright for the day.

P.S. My under-eye concealer never creased throughout the day either!  Double bonus!!

After I masked my eyes, I headed out for coffee and a freshly baked muffin!!

10801930_996522170364819_7057834655739226717_n

 

I tried to get Ryan with a coffee mask on, but he didn’t understand……

We spent the rest of the day in a little spiritual book store we love, called Banyan Books here in Vancouver and I’m so excited because I picked up some super fancy, rock your world, change your state, STONES!

10846175_10152994165756535_4530174370640749249_n

 

Each of these stones have a different and powerful meaning, one is for manifesting, one is for embracing your shadow and calming, one is for deeper connection and so much more!  If you’d like a breakdown on each, comment below and I’ll place the write up for you!

I’m a believer in all my spiritual rituals and I love that I have tools like these, my cards, my journal and all my training to be able to not only help myself to better my life, but to help you as well.

I would love to hear how your weekend was?   What did you do?

xxoo
Kris

PS.  Tonight is week 2 of our Soulful Money Masterclass and I am so excited to hop on a live call with 31 people who just wrote out their top 2 new year goals!  Talk about awesome energy…..I can’t wait until 5pm!!!

Paleo Gingersnap Cookies {Chewy & Spicy!}

Happy Treat Friday, Gorgeous!

Christmas music is dancing through our home and my lungs as I make these Paleo Gingersnap Cookies….

I’ve said this probably 7 million times by now, but it’s legit, Christmas is my favourite time of year!  The magic sometimes overwhelms me and I have to ground myself.  No joke, in my mind the spirit of Santa exists and the magic pours from the warmth of this season.

My mom and I have been peeking around for some healthy holiday treat recipes to make and we found a great one over at Gourmande In The Kitchen!  Her Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies had to be made in my oven and shared with you, my closest friends!

paleogingersnaps

Let me start off by saying, Sylvie from Gourmande In The Kitchen had to be thinking of myself and my mom when she whipped these delicious chewy ginger molasses cookies up.  Like mother like daughter, we are the ones that request the Ginger Cookie from Starbucks if we want a good cheat, cheat, you know?

I can remember long before I understood what “Clean Eating” was….or Girly Muscles, I just went with the tastes I liked that that was anything sugary, chocolate or gingery, I would eat the Whole Foods Ginger Cookies.  Like addicted to them.  Who has not tried the ginger cookies from Whole Foods?!  To. Die. For.

If you’re looking for a really simple, paleo ginger molasses cookie to make this holiday season, check out this recipe now!

photo 2-13

 

Truthfully the only “tweak” I made to this cookie recipe was added a wee bit less than a full cup of Almond Butter and a wee bit more Coconut Flour.  I just had a pull to do it and it worked out well.

These bombshells are freaking chewy and over the moon tasty!

If I were you, I’d leave a couple out for santa this year……he’ll really love you for it!

What is your favourite holiday cookie?

How to Get Your Clear Answer!

I might be that whacky gal that writes letters to the universe and God through her journal, but I tell ya….

…if you’re looking for a CLEAR answer to something you’re confused about, you’ll get it through the pages of your journal.

Ryan and I have launched a group program for 6-weeks and this Soulful Money Masterclass {catchy name huh?!} has brought some amazing entrepreneurs our way and we have been bless to join them live on group calls and in our private Facebook group to help and support them on their journey in life and business and get them into money flow!

So here’s the deal, we believe that our Self Love and Connection has EVERYTHING to do with creating a thriving business and life that you love.  Not every coach or boss will tell you this, but it’s true.

Over the next 6 weeks we’ve asked this group to get a fresh new journal and spend time journaling each day.

Well, this has created quite the “stir” in the group.

Here’s why……{I’m so PROUD of people who are ready to step up yet they are scared pant less doing it!!!  hahah!}

Most of our friends in the group have never allowed themselves to be OPEN with themselves.

I’m not sure if you can relate, but a lot of them have gotten really great at pushing their feelings and beliefs aside, forgetting what they love and what their passion is out of fear or self doubt and have “settled” most of their life.  So when we ask them to whip out their journal and write a letter to God, we are flooded with messages like this:

journalconfusion

Peeps be having “Journal Confusion”.

I get it.

I never wanted to get REAL with my weakness or my wins.  I hated the thought of putting my thoughts on paper because then I have to admit to them and heaven for bid…..READ them.  YUCK.

Writing in a journal can be scary for you because you don’t know how to start.

“What is the first sentence?!”

“What do you think about when you’re writing in your journal?!”

“Should you ask for something?!”

“Is it REALLY safe for me to be dwelling in my shit if I was told to stop thinking about the negative?!”

Here’s the real deal-e-o folks.  In my opinion anyways and it’s how I support my clients….

You can’t run from the past, you can’t hide from where you’re at now, even if it you feel it sucks and you’re worthless.

HECK NO!  It’s time to get real.  It’s time to gently acknowledge where you are now and where you have been so you can heal it and MOVE on.  This is your reason to heal:  You’re here to learn, live and give.

Find the gifts in your mess, live in your found light and GIVE what you’ve learned to others who need it.  SHINE your light, baby!

Where does the journal come into all of this??  Well, your journal is your connection to the divine….if you’re ready to find out the answer you need to move forward and to heal, ASK.  I wrote you a post on how to communicate with your inner self here.

I’m your biggest cheerleader, I want you to live on purpose and in a life full of joy and it’s safe for you to be open with what you believe are your “flaws”, but really these flaws are your lessons. I believe we’re here to learn it, live it and give it. So how can you start to do this today?

Get your journal and write yourself a letter. Ask where you need to go, who you need to see and what you need to say. Ask what your next step is? Do you need a coach? An accountability parter?

You see, most people come to me to change their life and it takes courage to do this, so I honour you for being courage today and learning to be open with yourself.

If you’re wondering how our friends in the Masterclass are handling this journal exercise, I’ll fill ya in ;)

People are saying; “I still have FEAR to write things down” but they are willing to walk through that. Being willing is all I ask for. When you’re willing, you’re life shifts!

I hope this helped you today?

Cranberry Granola Bars {Healthy Holiday Treat}

Good Morning, Gorgeous!

It’s overcast, below freezing and still dark outside….
Inside, my tree is lit up bright, the fireplace is roaring and my coffee is hot, I feel very happy today.

After reading an email sent to me after a friend watched yesterdays video on how to muscle test your food, it was clear that a lot of gluten free goddesses are eager to find some fun holiday treats that leave them feeling vibrant and good!  I love me my treats over the holiday season but I know a lot of them leave me feeling sluggish or bloated.

So I’ve listened and heard that you want low sugar, wheat free, egg free and dairy free dessert options.

Many of my friends who have food allergies or sensitivities are always ready for a great “wheat free” snack so I headed in the kitchen to make the tasty Cranberry Granola Bars I’m going to share with you today!

At one of my favourite local coffee shops {I go there if Starbucks is full and has no seats…} has an amazing oatmeal cranberry muffin and it got me thinking of how amazing it would be to make a healthier granola bar with cranberries.  I love the sweetness of the coconut and maple and tart of the cranberries together, it sets my Christmas love through the roof!

These little bars are great to bring to a friends holiday party, to pack in your lunch or to have on hand for your kids for when they come home from school….

I’m taking one with me to Starbucks today to nibble as I sip my Christmas Blend {my fav!}.
