What You Believe Is True… Or Is It?

What you believe shapes your life.  We’ve all heard this, but what I want to ask you today is this, do you BELIEVE that whatever you want to fix (either about yourself or in your life) is NOT AVAILABLE TO YOU?  Do you think that Success or Money or Health or even Happiness is unavailable to you?

You didn’t come into the world thinking that absolute success is not available to you or that absolute love is not available to you.  Somewhere along the way, someone told you or you figured out that money and success is not available to you.  That belief will stay with you and radiate out from you,everything-the-universe-has-is-yours which in turn the Universe will mirror right back to you. Whatever is mirrored to you from the Universe – YOU CAN CONTROL and it all starts with your thoughts and beliefs.

Your thoughts become beliefs, your beliefs shape you and how you act.  They also teach others how to treat you.  Your beliefs shape your inner and outer world.  Why wouldn’t you want to control those beliefs and have them be positive not only for yourself but others in your world?  So how can we change them?  The first step is to notice them. Notice how you speak to yourself, and notice what you say about others.  If you are judgmental, drop it – judging is not a strength but a weakness.  Besides, it’s not your place to judge others (or mine).

So Step #1 is to notice how you speak to yourself and what beliefs you are saying on a consistent basis.  It can be something simple like “I’m not good with money”.  Personally, I have had that one for a long time and for most of my life I have not been good with money. But people change and learn and I am a smart person just as you are.  We are all born with the capacity to evolve and working with money is just like figuring out how your new iphone works.  It can be done, it may take time and even coaching if needed, but in the end it can be done – if you want to achieve it.

The next few posts we will discuss how you can move through the upcoming steps that can change your beliefs which will in turn, change how others and the Universe treat and see you. I help people find their life purpose and I teach them to be brave.  If you need help trying to figure out what your gifts are, please email me and we can chat to see if we are fit for each other.

Your Words Matter

In astrology, this is a number 1 year, which means that it is the perfect year to manifest exactly what you want in life, it also comes with a responsibility.  That responsibility is completely up to you if you want to exercise it or not, but what it entails is setting positive intentions and actions in the beginning of this month.  You see, everything that you say and do this month will lay the groundwork for the next 9 YEARS!!!  Yes, 9 years!  So, if you want to manifest abundance or big changes in your life, may I suggest starting with positive intentions.

The other side of that coin is that the intentions must be coupled with actions and the more positive the better.  At the end of the day remember, we all have a choice in the words that we use and the tone of how we say those words.  Recently, in an atmosphere that is far removed from the office, I have been hearing and seeing very negative words from those around me.  But it’s not only the words that bother me – it’s the cumulative EFFECT that the words have had on another person.  The words have been so harsh, that they have stolen a large part of someone’s confidence and courage.  You know, the thing that we all work on most of our lives so that others can’t tear us down easily.

In this instance, the confidence is in an area that the young woman has been working on to BE confident in for quite a while.  The crazy thing about the situation is that she IS very competent in this certain area. However, an adult (who should have know better), set out to destroy and undermine everything that the young woman has been working so hard to build up.  The circumstances and atmosphere are not important because it could have happened anywhere to anyone reading this.

Whether you know it or not, we all have an arsenal that is fully locked and loaded, and is ready to be used at any time and it has nothing to do with nuclear powers.  It comes in the form of words, which can be like razors to anyone’s self-esteem and confidence.  The lesson here would be to exercise caution and really think BEFORE you speak about how your words will be received – and the EFFECT your words will have long after they are spoken.  The more positive we can keep our thoughts, the more positive our intentions and words will be.  If you want to manifest abundance in your life and you strive to help others, let your words be uplifting and positive and your criticism be tolerant leaving room for others to grow.  We are all a work in progress but our capacity for change and movement in the right direction is one of our greatest assets.  I’m all for CHOOSING what I say (or don’t say) and keeping it in a positive light. What about you?  Where can you change your thoughts and move in a new direction?  You never know what effect your your words will have and how they may help someone along the way.

Follow Your Heart…(Even if it seems crazy!)

I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday and are ready for the New Year!!!  I can’t believe that 2017 is almost here and while most people are taking stock of this last year, I wanted to do something a lil different.  I want you to look forward and really search your heart.

Sometimes in life, we take the long way around.  Some of us know exactly what we want to do professionally with our lives when we are very young.  Yet others of us are multi-passionate and like to try on different hats to see which one fits us the best.  If you are one of the latter people (like I am), you may have tried a bunch of different career paths that STILL may not feel quite right.  But don’t despair!

If you are reading this, I can guarantee that you have a SPECIAL GIFT that you truly want to give to the World.  It may be something Creative like Photography, Writing a book or Painting. On the more Professional side, it may be being an Engineer, Accountant or Interior Designer.  You may even have a MUCH LARGER DREAM like saving Elephants or helping animals that are near extinction to stop being hunted. Your cause may be helping children that are refugees from war torn countries that have no family or home to speak of. There are many causes you can help with but here’s the thing to remember – YOU MUST FOLLOW YOUR HEART!  

If you follow your heart, you need to know that your ideas will probably not be popular and they DEFINITELY won’t be either easy or make sense.  Take this as a given and accept it – hell, even embrace it, because if you don’t put this little gem to the side – you will never decide to move forward with your “crazy” idea.

God may have given you an idea that may be HUGE and even a game changer that will affect the planet in a very big way.  This idea will probably have been rolling around in your head for a while and you have put it to the side because it is either too big, too hard or even the thought of it overwhelms you and you don’t know where to start.  It will also seem CHR-AAA-ZZY!! to not only you but anyone else that you tell about it.  EXPECT people to tell you that it’s too hard, it doesn’t make sense and it can’t work.

You may even do research on Google Ad words which will come up with very, very small numbers = not worth putting effort into due to low search results. (NOTE:  Google Ad words allows you to type in a phrase or words and it will show you how many times people have searched the web using those same words.  It basically tells you if what you are typing in is popular and people are looking for it – or not.) So LOGICALLY we have an idea that was placed on our HEART that is not being widely searched on by Google.  Our friends (and even sometimes we) think it’s a little bananas AND we have no way in hell of figuring out how to make it come true. BRILLIANT – THIS IS NOW SOMETHING YOU MUST MOVE FORWARD WITH!

Why?  Because it was placed on your HEART for a reason – which is that ONLY YOU CAN MAKE THIS DREAM COME TRUE.  Like Frodo in Lord Of The Rings, only YOU can get the ball rolling to start making a positive change in the World. Here is the really cool part, once you take the first steps towards your crazy dream, all the pieces will start to fall into place.  The Universe will support you and start to bring new people for you to work with and mentors to guide you along your path.  So don’t ignore what your heart is telling you any longer.  We never know how much time we have on this Earth and I (and I am sure you) want to do what we have been called to do.

Remember this:  Ryan Reynolds tried for 10 years to get the movie DeadPool made.  Everyone told him it sucked and he was crazy to want to do the movie but it made sense to him. He is now up for 2 Golden Globe nominations and it is the first superhero movie to EVER be nominated for one. (It’s awesome by the way, I have seen it at least 5 times – super funny!)  Steve Jobs was called crazy for a long time. Everyone thought what he was doing could not be done and was a far off dream, yet he made it come true and now to us a smart phone is normal.  What is a phone that only calls people now?  Archaic!  Follow Your Heart that’s all you need to do.

My specialty is helping people find their true purpose in life.  I am opening up a few select spots for my True North Package which includes a 2 hour deep dive to find out what you are truly here to do, as well as give you a detailed road map (with explicit directions) to put you on the right road to success.  Email me and let me know if you want more information on the True North Package.

Never Dim Your Shine…

With the full moon that is here tonight and tomorrow night in all of it’s glory, I was specifically told to tell everyone that it’s so important – NOW – for you to send out all of your positive intentions to the Universe.  The Moon is so strong, it is the mastermind for the seas and it often has different effects on people.  The most important part for you to understand is that NOW is the time that you can truly manifest all that you desire.  The full moon is a catalyst to send your dreams and what you desire into action –FAST!

Scenario #1
Scenario #1- Don’t Be So Colorful!!

What does this have to do with Never Dim Your Shine?  A few days ago I got an image in mind of what you see below.  As you can see, there is the Black and White Peacock that is telling the beautiful, Colored Peacock to “Stop being so colorful”.  In other words, make yourself smaller, be black and white, don’t be so “out there!”  This is a hard one for those of us who are CREATIVE or DIFFERENT to swallow.  There have been many times in my life (and yours too I am sure), that I have been told to “Stop it” and “Act like the rest of us!”.  In my opinion, the reason this happens is that people get jealous and they also don’t understand original opinions, art, thoughts etc.  What they don’t understand, they want to not only shut it down but also shut if OFF.  THEY are more comfortable being a sheep, but when you are an Innovator at heart and see things differently than others – what they don’t know is that you can’t stop it.  The amazing thoughts that come into your head are just that – innovative and daring thoughts that can change the World.

I am sure that Steve Jobs was told a million times that his ideas “Could not be done”. Can you imagine being in the room when he came up with an idea of the iPhone.  The language probably went something like this:  “It’s a phone, but it’s also connected to the internet, holds your pictures, allows you to see movies, and it’s a calculator and flashlight too, among many other things”.  The employees must have been thinking “But it’s JUST A PHONE!!!”  Do you see the difference in Mindset?  Yet Steve Jobs KNEW it was much more than that.  It’s innovative and DIFFERENT thoughts like those that can and DO change the World.

Scenario #2 - SHINE ON!!!
Scenario #2 – SHINE ON!!!

The second picture is one of where my thoughts are now and I encourage you to be as well.  It is hard-won and comes with maturity and the KNOWLEDGE that just because you are DIFFERENT, does not mean you are LESS THAN!  It means you are different, but in a MAGICAL way!  Being different is always hard because people don’t understand what you are thinking or how you came up with your “crazy” ideas.  Yet, being different is AMAZING!  It’s what makes you – well, YOU!  It’s what allows you to accomplish the goals and dreams you have set for yourself.  Just like Frodo in the Lord of the Rings – he was the ONLY one who could accomplish the task set before him – no one else was equipped to handle the journey – he was MADE to do that job.  I believe that whatever dream or goal is in your heart right now – you are FULLY EQUIPPED to do.  I believe that no matter how “crazy” it sounds (even to you), or how outrageous or different it may be – it is there for a reason.  For you to ACCOMPLISH THAT TASK!

Next time you are thinking outside the box or daring to do something that may have never been done before – think of the Peacock in the second box and don’t dim your shine or not show your colors for anyone!  After all you are the only one who can wear those colors the best!

I teach Entrepreneurs how to be BRAVE and reach their goals by helping them see their life purpose.  Reach out to me with questions or if you need help hitting a goal and want support along the way.  Remember:  I BELIEVE IN YOU!  Shine On!

The Reason Your WHY Is SO Important!

What is your WHY?  What is the real reason you are getting out of bed and have started this business?  Or why do you want to change your mindset?  WHAT is it you want out of life that you don’t have now?  If you say more money – that is not a good enough reason. The REAL reason you want different things (business, more happiness, better relationships, etc.) is because they will make your life richer.  Some of us have causes that really affect our hearts and we want to change the future and make it better.  Others of us are innovators, who desire to help others stop struggling where we often did for so damn long.  Whatever your reason is – that is your WHY and your WHY is what you need to hang on too when things get tough.

Life can be hard and many days it is a struggle to keep going.  There will be days where you may feel like you are putting out so much of yourself and getting nothing back in return for all of your hard work.  But don’t quit, don’t give up and don’t stop   Keep remembering your WHY and by the way – it’s OK to change direction too.  I have met people who are doing something that their heart is not into and hasn’t been for a very long time.  When I ask them why they are still putting in the work – they say they have tried for so long they don’t want to give in but it really isn’t making their heart sing the way it used too.  That’s when I say – you know what?  It’s perfectly ok to change direction and change your mind.  If you feel called to do something that is different than what you are doing right now (and it can be a small change or a totally different occupation, direction etc) – that is still OK!  This is YOUR LIFE!  You are ALLOWED to change and grow because that is what you are supposed to do.  You are not the same person you were two months ago, or even one year ago.  If you have been doing the same job for 20 years and your making good money but you are bored, tired, not interested in it –CHANGE IT UP! You can veer off and do different things all while keeping your current job – make it a side hustle until it is your full time gig.  But GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO CHANGE – it’s called growth.  Ok that’s my rant.  I just want you all to have the big, beautiful and wonderful life you were born to have.  Thoughts?

P.S. I help people find their true purpose (what makes them happy) and help them understand they can have what they want (by giving them permission to do what lights them up).  Together we work on whatever is holding them back and get rid of it (mindset strategies and tweaks make all the difference in what you can achieve.)  If you need my help to hit a goal – just ONE goal in a short amount of time.  Take a peek at this here

YOU ARE RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE…

Julie Saillant photoDo you believe it?  I didn’t.  For like, years.  I told others I believed it, but I didn’t – until very recently.  I received an amazing gift from a Shaman and I wanted to share my story with you in the hopes that you will realize the truth which is –

“YES!  YOU ARE RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE!”

I am a highly intuitive Empath and Mindset Coach but my mentor/bestie and friend (who is also an amazing business woman) that I have been lucky enough to know, gave me a very unexpected surprise that changed my life.

If you have ever had a strong desire to achieve something BIG with your life – whether it be Creative (Writer, Photographer, Designer) or Corporate Business Person (Accountant, Engineer or Vice President), or even to save lives, (Doctor, Veterinarian, Military) – whatever you have dreamed – you can be.  So they say.  But anyone who has been chasing their dreams for even a small amount of time knows that yes, dreams do come true, but they usually take time.

I am a perfectionist and all my life I have wanted to do two things – strengthen my gifts so that I can save people and save horses.  I have had an unusual background of Sales and Marketing as well as being an Empath, Animal Communicator and Creative.  I am also a Mindset Coach and my super power is that I can see any gaps you may have or places where you have been self-sabotaging – and stop them from happening.  I live at 30,000 feet – that is where I am most comfortable and that’s one of my strengths.  In other words – I hate being in the weeds – details and I don’t mix well together.

I got out of the Corporate world to “do my own thing”, but money was tight and as they say “it always takes three times longer than you think it will to be successful”.  What I didn’t want to happen – happened.  I had to go back to work and take a J-O-B!  OMG!  I can’t even say the word out loud (which was pointed out to be by my Shaman friend.)

One of my other missions is to move to a warmer climate and live near the beach.  I have been wanting this for a very long time, and I knew I needed to create some income to make that happen.  So I took a J-O-B and by the end of the first week, I felt like I was a complete sell out.  I felt like I had given up, not only on myself, but my dreams.  I was desperate to FINALLY become that successful Coach and manifest my new reality.  Yet here I was, doing something that was mundane and I was in turmoil.  Hold on because here is where the Shaman comes in.

The Shaman said “The problem is, that you see yourself as not only selling out, but that all of the “mistakes” you have made, took you off path – but you will see in a short time that life does not make mistakes.  Everything you have learned, from every job that you liked or didn’t like, will all work in unison, to give you the experiences that you need to serve others in a greater way!  You are ON PATH, you should not look at those experiences as mistakes but as lessons learned.  In other words, you are right where you are supposed to be!”  “Sure doesn’t feel like it” I said.  “But you are!” she said.  “Every experience alters your perceptions and changes you – you are not the same person the first day of a new job to the day you leave it – your values, perceptions, knowledge all change.  Each experience will raise your vibration, so never look at experiences as mistakes – you are acquiring knowledge.”

So for everyone in the room who may be like me – this is how I felt:  I am in a J-O-B that is not really contributing or doing anything important in the world.  What’s worse is I am now off track and feel like I am getting farther away from my dreams than closer to them.  I want to control things (especially my own life) and when it feels like someone else has taken the wheel, I get confused and unhappy.  Until it hit me – get ready here is the reveal!

The best way you can help someone is to have walked in their shoes and been where they are now – only you are a few steps ahead of them and have figured out what works – so you can express it to them.  For example:  I struggled for many years trying to figure out why I wasn’t happy in a corporate job.  The reason, was because I was not using my Creative skills – at all.  I was doing something I didn’t want to do, felt it was a waste of time AND was unable to do what made my heart sing.  If I had NEVER gone through that experience of really trying to understand why I wasn’t happy – I would not be able to communicate that message/experience/feeling to another person.

Because I have been where you may be now – in a job that makes you unhappy, feeling stuck, or you are not using your gifts – I can authentically and emphatically tell you “I UNDERSTAND – I have been where you are and I know how to get you to a happier place – I have the map you are looking for”.  See?  So here are 5 things you can do right now my if you are in that place.

  1. FIND WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO.  What are you good at?  What is a gift that you love to use that you are NOT using now?  What is so easy for you that others tell you they wish they could do what you do – because for them it’s hard, for you it’s easy as pie. Hint:  No matter how old you are – it is NEVER to late to find your passion.  Don’t give up – without it – life is meaningless.
  2. KNOW THAT YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT PATH – In fact, you can never get off path and life is going to help you along – even when you feel like it isn’t going your way, it is all going according to plan.
  3. Most importantly (and this is something I’m still working on) LET GO!!!!!  Let go of trying to control everything.  Let go and know that you are in the right place and nothing in your life (people, jobs, experiences, lessons, losses, happiness) is for naught.  All of it are tools for your toolkit.
  4. TRUST YOURSELF!  You are an infinite being and are more powerful than you realize.  When you think you can’t go any further – you have another 40% left in the tank (that’s what the Navy Seals say – the 40% Rule – so I’m going with it!).  You are strong, wise and can do anything you set your mind to.  Don’t sell yourself short – TRUST YOURSELF and
  5. NEVER GIVE UP!  No matter how long it takes, no mater what you want to accomplish – keep on reaching for it.  Map out a plan, make it a mission and let nothing stand in your way.

Tell me where you are, what you want to accomplish and one small (or giant) step that you can take to start you on your way.  If you have been on your journey and feel you may have backtracked, don’t be disheartened.  Keep that idea in your mind, make it  your mission and hatch a plan to get back on track.  What are two steps you can take to move you closer towards reaching your goal?

How To Have Confidence Being Visible Even If Your Not Self Assured

CONFIDENCE EVEN IF YOUR NOT SELF ASSUREDToday’s topic is about CONFIDENCE.  Confidence comes from a place of: I learned a lesson and I am offering that knowledge to you, so that you don’t have to struggle like I did. Simple and effective.

Most of us have amazing ideas around what we want to say to our potential clients.  We lay out where and when we will post but sometimes we can get nervous around the thought of putting ourselves out there.  I’m referring to the thoughts of “Will what I have to say be good enough for them to listen and understand my message?  Is my message good enough?”

You have to trust that what you have been through and the lessons you have learned ARE GOOD ENOUGH TO HELP OTHERS. There is no better voice for one to hear than from an expert who has been in that same situation beforehand and has overcome the problem your clients are currently facing.

You don’t have to have it all figured out (no one does).  You don’t need the perfect answer (no one has that either).  What you DO have are the lessons you’ve learned and you only need to be two steps ahead of your client to help them.  Trust that everything you have learned up until this point has been for a reason – to help not only yourself but others as well.  So many times we can get stuck in what “perfect” looks like in our heads but here is something you may not have thought of:   Your lovely clients are all at different places in their business and development of their goals.

PRACTICAL STEPS TO HAVE CONFIDENCE:

  1.  Think of your WHY.  Whenever I get nervous about stepping out or overwhelmed around which topic I should talk about – remember your client.  What are they struggling with and how can you help them? How can you give so much value that they will say “WOW, I am so happy I found this – finally someone understands where I am and how I can move forward.”
  2. Keep it simple.  Choose one topic at a time to write about and always meet them where they are.
  3. Small consistent steps are better than not stepping out at all.  Your potential clients need to see you online consistently.  It is not always a long post that garners the most attention, sometimes it can be just a couple of heart-felt paragraphs to get others engaged.
  4. KEEP THE FAITH.  It WILL feel like you are exposed, it will feel like you are not always doing it right but trust yourself and trust that there are people who need the information you have.  In fact they are desperate to hear it.  They are craving someone meet them where they are and show them how to effortlessly move through their problem – and you can, especially since you have done it before.

My Personal Example:  I am riding my horse near water and for those that don’t know, some horses act like a small puddle is as huge as the Atlantic Ocean.  They will jump aside, jig and get very nervous making the rider nervous in turn.  How do you handle that type of situation if you have never come across it before? Simple – you get a Trainer or trusted expert who HAS gone through the same scenario and learned from it.  I had a very good friend, trusted and experienced rider who coached me through the process which gave me two extremely valuable pieces of information: confidence and the ability to move through the situation easily SINCE SHE HAD BEEN THERE BEFORE AND KNEW WHAT TO DO TO HELP ME WORK THROUGH IT.  Now I can help you through it – (if you need a riding buddy let me know!:)

My point – what you have learned is valuable and absolutely does have the ability to help others.  I would love to hear your thoughts around confidence.  Please join my FB group to continue the conversation at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/578977005589932/
