It’s about integrating all parts of yourself to re-member yourself whole…

Including the orphaned, banished, and scorned parts.

The “good”, the “bad”, the “ugly” and “wrong”, the intensely unique and singular…

So you can live, create, and be as you were always meant. 

Totality.

WHY “POSITIVE THINKING” CAN CAUSE RESISTANCE

WHY “POSITIVE THINKING” CAN CAUSE RESISTANCE ...

“THE DARK” IS THE HIDDEN UNCONSCIOUS

....And Has Everything To Do With What You Experience Now, and How.

Yet the irony is those who try to sound sexy selling it, don’t actually get it, know what it is, understand it, or — more importantly — know how to work with it.

They practically stutter over the word shame or trauma, which resides in this territory, which includes BOTH the mind and the body: nervous system and emotional cellular.

Instead, they ignorantly attempt to criticize work which *actually* goes “there”, into the unconscious — the dark — which is where all our hidden resistances, fears, memories, orphaned parts, desires, wants, trauma lie.

It’s 30,000 times more power than the conscious “thinking” brain, but many fear it — mostly because they don’t understand it or how it operates.

It lies many layers below the surface of conscious thoughts.

Imagine what could change if you allowed yourself to access this in order to serve you and your higher aims, and how.

If your unconscious is not congruent to your conscious higher aims, you experience resistance.

Some are interested, but certainly not committed.

It is there we find out what we really are.

The good, the bad, the ugly, the beauty, the pain, the power.

Our ancient and taught fears.
The prescribed and acquired limitations.
The passed down irrational “rules”.

But many choose to ignore it, rather than explore it.

Your unconscious is that which determines “how it is”, which operates much deeper than conscious thought, habit, behavior, and it is laced in an identity, which is why you don’t “see” it.

If you genuinely want to access your greatest potential, life force, genius, you must go here.

Your potential does not lie “out there”; it lies deep within you — in the nucleus of each cell of your being.

It’s already available to you, except unconscious programming, beliefs, memories, and trauma shape our perception and identity, and manipulate our energy, distorting what we perceive is possible, and how.

And why no matter how much you learn, effort, strategize, do, and achieve, you still feel like you’re missing something; your results don’t seem to change;

This is not only about women’s reproductive rights, which by itself is profoundly rattling and disturbing.

It’s far greater and more severe than that. 

And the spectacle lies in the attempt to present these social issues as separate and hierarchical. 

When, in fact, they are all interconnected.

It goes back to the Civil Rights movement when varying social movements were positioned against each other, rather than uniting to challenge the ruling power that undermined fundamental human rights. 

The Supreme Court is looking to upend the rights to contraception, same-sex relationships and marriages, leading to increased surveillance and fascism.

It doesn’t stop at this one ruling.

I really can’t believe this is America in 2022. 

Except, I can’t say I didn’t see it coming. Unfortunately, some chose to ignore it.

THOSE WHO CANT THINK FOR THEMSELVES…COPY, STEAL, FOLLOW

There’s a woman, Emma, who has been following me since around late 2019/2020 along with a group of other women, who have been pulling from my content, for years (Jo, Tina, Amy, Helena,Charlotte). 

She followed every single account of mine, even joined my group. She was in the midst of a business change, but then I slowly observed she was using my concepts to create her “new business”, so I blocked her.

But she didn’t let that stop her. And the same is true for the ladies I mentioned above.

This is by far my #1 trigger in business, as it touches one of my highest values, especially when I see business owners using my concepts— not just words — to sell their own work, *especially* when I know their work doesn’t actually back it. 

I remember when I first moved to NYC, there was a shop I used to hang out in the Lower East Side. 

I wish I could remember its name, but it had a small selection of highly curated vintage items and new downtown designers, along with a small selection of records.

The owner was telling my friends and I how major labels would come in and buy the whole rack, and you would often see the designs in their next collection a season later.

I remember feeling horrified for so many reasons. I just couldn’t believe it.

How naive I was.

But then I recalled, while living in London, having a friend, who went to Central Saint Martins, telling me how he and friends had to guard their work until they showed it and even then they had to watch out that it wasn’t copied. 

What a predicament: you want to get visible but then getting visible could make your work vulnerable to copying and co-opting.

I was shocked then, now it’s a regular occurrence on the internet.

Hell, diet prada dedicates a whole account to it.

But these people have no shame. Clearly, I blocked them, and they continue to pull from me, and others I’m sure.

Not exactly demonstrating the “spiritual” or “revolutionary” leader they say they are.

In fact, most of them are highly reliant on their mentors and others they spot on the internet for ideas to “channel” (read: copy) the next program, not their own.

WHAT MAKES YOUR SINGULAR WORK 

…truly singular (as in exceptional, rare, unique)?

Not your (past) mentor’s, yours. 

Hint: it’s not about doing or achieving more or making it “better”…

It’s about ‘seeing’ what is already there, 

getting intimate with it …

honoring it, and upping the ante.

Too many people hold themselves back through comparison, competition, battle, copying, editing, appeasing, and needing approval.

It blinds you from seeing what’s already available to you.

Why do you think that is?

If you’ve been reading my content long enough, you know the answer. 

So what makes Your Singular Work truly singular?

I sometimes hear people say: me

… but go deeper. 

Expand.

What is your stance?

How do you give your work form and expression to back your philosophy?

Where are you shying or running away?

What do you want for it, yourself?

What fears arise if you were to let yourself lead your work where you want it to go, in order to be shared as you (privately) see it, and how?

Have you even thought about it?

A lot of people get caught up worrying about what others are doing or not doing..

Saying and not saying.

Which points to an underlying insecurity which does not serve you.

If you’re bored and unsatisfied, you’re highly likely living in your comfort zone, despite wanting to experience something different — safe — which implies resistance and fear.

Let yourself imagine, freely.

What stops you?

What are you doing about it?

Read that again.…

And why I place so much attention on this piece.

We are all programmed, whether you acknowledge it or not

Whatever language you speak is proof of that.

And not all programming is bad, as it is important for survival and keeps us alive and a part of society…

BUT we also receive programming in various ways: hypnotic suggestion, modeling, teaching, environment, repetition, and trauma…

Which does not serve us and causes unconscious resistances and fears, despite all your desire, actions, and efforts.

It’s one thing to experience quick breakthroughs, results, experiences…

It’s another to experience fundamental transformation and sustainable change.

Which do you choose?

🍒 IT'S TIME. 

I invite you to RADICAL ACTIVATION

... I’ll be sharing my highest value content in this group, which I'm very excited for you to experience:

🍒 When it comes to Your Singular Work™ and business, what's *actually* causing your biggest challenges related to visibility and representing yourself with distinction, even if you're already an industry leader, you sense a deeper seed of potential ready to emerge....with ease, not force or contorting yourself into another version of yourself.

...this is about your creative agency, your "voice", and expression, which you won't get from linear, head-y frameworks and why I integrate advanced interpersonal work 

🍒 What really makes your work singular (as in rare, exceptional, unique) which is THE defining distinction you are likely not 'seeing' (Hint: it's not something you DO necessarily, it starts way before that)

🍒 The *cause* of your financial challenges and symptoms related to *each* part of your money (which will surprise you) and the big why behind your (chronic) stress, anxiety, fears, financial patterns, and set points, even IF you make a lot of money...

Uncovering and dissolving this is the portal to your deepest transformation and desires. This is about diving deeper into yourself so you can truly RISE

(...your inter-dynamics to each part of your money get specific and fine, which and why I use a comprehensive, multi-level psychosomatic approach (I will share much more about that too 🙂 ) )

🍒 Why someone can teach you how to sell, market, sign clients, and even how to manage and invest your money, except you still struggle with confidence, making financial decisions, experience fears of loss, struggle with what you're actualizing and how you represent yourself and Your Singular Work™, especially if you're stuck in strategy, linear processes, and following what others are telling you to say and do.

I'm excited to finally open this space again where I can share more intimate trainings, offer support, and nurture discussions.

If you don't really believe your results and how you experience your results comes down to what's going on with you on an interpersonal level....

You won't do the interpersonal work or continue to do interpersonal work, *especially* when it gets uncomfortable, which is generally exactly where you need to go to experience what you most desire and want.

This is why so many people read motivational books, posts, and programs that fizzle and die as soon as they put it down, scroll, or turn it off....

Many nod their head when they hear: success is 80% inner game and 20% action, but their behaviors prove otherwise.

We can say we believe a lot of things, but our behaviors and actions are what truly speak.

When it comes to the interpersonal work, it's not linear and this where many people get tripped up, because they want concrete and immediate results.

Many of us were not taught to value our inner world and/or to give attention to ourselves, which change and interpersonal work requires. 

It's why so many people say things like: 

I don't have time
I'm too busy
Well, I have (insert laundry list of things to do)
It doesn't work for me

This is typically our subconscious way of avoiding ourselves and the changes we say we want to make.

Start by being honest with yourself, even if you don't like the answer.

Do you really want to change _____?

If you say no, congratulations, a layer of resistance may naturally drop a few levels.

If you say yes...

Do your actions, behaviors, decisions, focus, and investments line up to that?

Being confessional (and crying) is not the same as confronting and resolving the cause of a “problem”.

I hear things like: I’m just avoidant (insert attachment style) or I’m not good at ____ or I just get angry when _____

And they think that means they are somehow “releasing it” by being confessional or acknowledging the “problem” (symptom) only.

“Diagnosis” is not the same as truly resolving your challenges.

It’s why a lot of people can love talk therapy or reading and knowing all about themselves and their “problems”, but not actually do the deeper interpersonal work required to dissolve it, which if it’s really going “there” will include trauma work. And it’s not linear.

Except, in truth, just being confessional is another form of NOT actually deciding to resolve it and, therefore, change. It can further calcify an identity. 

I used to be the confessional queen. It was very magnetizing because others would appreciate me sharing what they, too, felt, but it never led to profound change. It was simply another form of commiserating.

There are so many subtle, sneaky, and insidious ways our unconscious “protects” us from actually growing and experiencing what we consciously desire.

Why you must go to the root cause and dissolve at mult-levels: cognitive, nervous system, emotional cellular— simultaneously 

Sync up the unconscious and conscious.

The body and the mind.

YOU KNOW NOW IS THE TIME TO MOVE YOUR SINGULAR WORK AND BUSINESS IN NEW DIRECTIONS... BUT HOW? 

You're finally at that point in your business or career when making "enough" money is no longer your biggest distraction or focus.

In fact, money might be rolling in for you, except you recognize that money is no longer the biggest motivator of yours, if it ever was.

In fact, you might even recognize money has acted as its own distraction, constantly aiming for higher and higher income goals, frustrating patterns and pressure related to your credit line, investment resistances and fears, while also seeing you might be losing the plot....which is why I include inter-dynamic work around each part of your money. I don't take that for granted as your money will show you exactly how and why you "hide" or play it safe at the finest level. 

Because as you rise, elevated work requires going to the finest layers, which can make the most distinct and greatest difference. 

Especially since Your Singular Work, too, requires it. No more vagary or broad stroke binary generalizations. 

You are definitely seen as an expert or a leader in your industry, but now it is time to SEE YOURSELF.

All the parts of you you keep private and subdued.

You may not even be able to fully articulate just what that is, but you know it is so much more than what you present.

But it's not enough to say this or recognize it.

If you genuinely want to create new space and give sincere form to "your voice", you must go to and allow the non-connotative "other" which only you possess to emerge and be given the attention it deserves. This is what I call your anima which animates entirely new expressions yet to be known.

Your Singular Work is not the same as your business.

(singular meaning rare, exceptional, unique)

Your business is that which supports Your Singular Work.

Your Singular Work is not your offers, your strategy, your structure, or even your "message".

Your Singular Work is that which determines and leads those things.

You genuinely have to ask yourself:

Do I truly want to change… for things to change?

Are you actually leading from the changes you want to make?

When it comes to your inter-dynamic to money, it takes daily attention, especially in the beginning.

Many people don’t acknowledge they are afraid to lose the identity they possess related to money and business, and why change can feel hard: the over working identity, the poor identity, the struggler, the tough one, the self-reliant, the challenged, the “nothing works for me” identity, “I work so hard” identity, etc…because it connects you to certain people (loyalty) or it gives some kind of reward: attention, badge of honor, connection.

Unconsciously, many people are afraid to leave others behind or to become a different person, then what?

This is why I can spot whether a person is more committed to their problems than actually resolving them: the solution.

It takes work.

It’s 2022, and after a series of dramatic (and very tragic) events and changes in this world, we STILL have so-called-transformational “spiritual” coaches who stutter — even dismiss— the word or reality of trauma and its impact, IF they even mention it all. 

Why? Because it doesn’t sell or it’s not “sexy”.

“Just be positive”….

Or there are the coaches who mention trauma because they are hungry to be “relevant” but then put down actual trauma approaches for being “woo-woo” and then offer mindset: journaling and laser coaching as their approach. But clearly choose not to educate themselves.

Is it any wonder people are weary AF to trust and invest in people.

My past mentor, who I blocked in 2018, still haunts me, especially since she still stalks me.

Trauma is an active thing, not just an event that happened (years ago in the past).

If people don’t process and resolve trauma, they continue to live with it and create from it.

I’m not proposing that everyone offer trauma support (god, no), but the number of coaches who try to talk about “truth” along with ”shadow”, yet can only use metaphors like “walking on the edge (of the abyss or void)” in order to sound mysterious; instead, of speaking directly to what it really means to transcend “shadow” — facing one’s shame, guilt, anger/rage, grief, etc…

They demonstrate to me that they still have problems with those very human emotions. 

It’s not “sexy” or sellable.

If you have not resolved this in yourself, it will be difficult to speak about it and go there with your clients because you still think there’s something “wrong” or “bad” about it. 

You can’t talk about the “energetics” without also talking about the denser (internalized) emotions.

When you dissolve shame, you experience pure self-love.

When you dissolve guilt, you experience emotional freedom from worry, stress, regret

When you dissolve anger/rage, you experience creative agency, self-advocacy, charisma, (cou)rage.

When you dissolve grief, you allow joy, new positive awareness, new possibilities, and hope.

It’s 2022, and after a series of dramatic (and very tragic) events and changes in this world, we STILL have so-called-transformational “spiritual” coaches who stutter — even dismiss— the word or reality of trauma and its impact, IF they even mention it all.

Why? Because it doesn’t sell or it’s not “sexy”.

“Just be positive”….

Or there are the coaches who mention trauma because they are hungry to be “relevant” but then put down actual trauma approaches for being “woo-woo” and then offer mindset: journaling and laser coaching as their approach. But clearly choose not to educate themselves.

Is it any wonder people are weary AF to trust and invest in people.

My past mentor, who I blocked in 2018, still haunts me, especially since she still stalks me.

Trauma is an active thing, not just an event that happened (years ago in the past).

If people don’t process and resolve trauma, they continue to live with it and create from it.
