Chocolate Hot Chocolate & Mousse (non-dairy, no refined sugar)

dairy-free gluten-free Dec 08, 2020

This recipe, like many of my others, happened purely by accident.

I made a delicious sugar-free Hot Chocolate then put the leftovers in the fridge for later. When I went to heat it up again, it was solid in state and I realized that it was as good (if not better) than the Hot Chocolate.

Because I like really easy recipes, I did some simple tweaks and this Chocolate Mousse was born. And has been HIT overtime I bring it with me to parties.

Some things to know:

I make in a Vitamix—I haven’t tried it in a regular blender so I can’t guarantee what it will turn out like (a friend did it and said it was good).

If you really love chocolate--double the recipe to make A LOT.  While that may seem like a lot, when you try it, you will be glad that you have so much. What I typically do is portion out 1 cup servings and have one (or two, lol) a day.

Feel free to add your own flavorings to change it up--I'm a big fan of mint and chocolate together or cinnamon, the...

Which Is Blocking You?

Uncategorized Dec 01, 2020

Have you ever tried to catch a ball, only to get blocked by someone?


You can’t help but feel disappointed because you nearly reached your outcome to catch the ball, but you didn’t.


People face blocks all the time. It’s a part of life.


You are on my email list because you have a desire to live a great life ~ unblocked.


Today, I wanted to talk about the 3 biggest blocks you will face in life.


Being able to identify and anticipate these will save you a ton of time and heartache in life...who doesn't want that?


1. Internal
The first block, and the one that gives us the most agency to change, is our internal blocks.


These are the thoughts/beliefs we have about ourselves, our life, and our ability to experience what we desire.


You will face this block pretty much every moment you are alive ~ which may sound dreadful, but it can actually be fun when we see those thoughts/beliefs as just clouds passing by.


The fastest way to grow beyond this block is to question every...

A Little Rain Can't Keep This Away...

My current reality is that I’m at the beach for vacation...and as I write this, it’s raining….
 
In the past +   =  
 
But living aligned with abundance creates this equation +   =   as I’m now able to see all of the goodness that comes with every situation, whether it’s one I like or not.
 
In my last blog post, I asked what abundance meant to you—y’all wrote back and said things like:
 
Having an abundance of opportunities
Experiencing an abundance of laughter
Living in an abundance of joy
An abundance of money in your bank account
 
One of my favorite things I hear people say is that when we release the trapped emotions and traumas that are keeping them stuck they finally feel like they have the space to allow abundance to come into their world.
 
Whether it’s an abundance of
 
Money
Time
Joy
Health
 
they now see that THEY were the ones...

What My Breakup Is Showing Me About Abundance

Uncategorized Sep 30, 2020


Breakups suck.

No matter who is the one doing the breaking up, they are hard.

I’m fresh out of a breakup and man, I have been learning so much.

As I mentioned in my last email, I had been quiet for a few months because I was believing that “no one wants to hear what I have to say”.

I worked with my Body Code practitioner to move out the trapped emotions/trauma that were keeping me silent and, well…. the flood gates have opened!

So, what does that have to do with breakups and abundance?

Historically, when I experienced a break-up, it was natural to go down the “Woah-is-me-I-have no-body-that-loves-me-there-is-nothing-good-in-my-life-to-be-happy-about” road real quick.

In the past few years, I’ve been doing a lot of work releasing all the gunk that’s made it really easy for me to go down that road and really hard for me to see all of the abundance around me.

I’m seeing the results of all of that work because, even though I am sad...

I Was Guilty of The Shoemaker’s Children Syndrome

Uncategorized Sep 23, 2020

Writing this is a bit embarrassing, it’s personal and vulnerable!

If you follow my stuff, you may know me as someone who can help people get unstuck with their beliefs and emotions through combining coaching and The Body Code.

Which, is true…and makes it even more embarrassing to share that for MONTHS I had been struggling with the belief “no one wants to hear what I have to say"

It’s what’s prevented me from sending out emails and writing blog posts.

I’ve reluctantly been posting on social media.

All because I was believing “no one wants to hear what I have to say!”

For some reason I didn’t bother to use The Body Code on myself to clear out that belief.

I was guilty of the Shoemaker’s Children Syndrome.

It’s a term that refers to an old proverb that tells of a shoemaker who was so busy making shoes for his customers that his wife and kids went shoeless.

The moral of the story is to be careful not neglect ourselves...

What To Do When The Feeling Is Too Intense

As I look out my window, I see nothing but white clouds and the right wing of the airplane I am currently aboard.

It never ceases to amaze me that we have the technology to walk into a tin can and fly across the sky….and now, surf the internet, text and watch movies!

I’m heading to Arizona for vacation ~ the 1st half of the trip I’m going to spend time with a friend I met at Rythmia last year ~she’s a total bad-ass....Last February, she climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro at 70!

The second half of the week I’ll be hanging out with some women that I know through Dr. Joe Dispenza’s work and going to a 1-day event of his.(if you haven’t read his book, “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself”, I highly recommend it) 

My plan is to completely “turn-off” and not work at all….which is something I haven’t done on a vacation in YEARS!

I’ll usually still take some calls and still do energy work with clients…

SAD (Seasonal Affect Disorder)



SAD is a recurrent type of depression associated with the change in seasons ~ generally, it starts in the fall and goes through the winter months.


For some people, it can be debilitating.

Some of the signs of SAD are:

  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Feeling less social than usual
  • Difficulty taking initiative
  • Overeating
  • Feeling down or depressed most of the day, nearly every day
  • Loss of interest in things you usually enjoy
  • Struggling to focus
  • Feeling constantly fatigued and lethargic
  • Feeling hopeless about the future
  • Having suicidal thoughts


I don’t know about you but SAD impacts me EVERY year.

It’s a big reason why I moved out of the North East to the South…but it is still a thing with the gray, rainy weather during the winter months here in Charlotte, NC.

Do You Constantly Feel “Not Good Enough?

If you google “human’s number one fear” more than likely, you’ll find “public speaking” listed as that fear.

AND….when you peel back the layers, it’s not that people are afraid of public speaking, they are really afraid of being negatively evaluated…

which leads to a deeper fear of being rejected for not being good enough…

which ultimately leads to a deep fear of not belonging.

When we have the fear of not being good enough, therefore, not belonging we;

  • Second guess ourselves
  • Lack trust in & are paralyzed in our decision making
  • Isolate ourselves from the connections we actually desire
  • Feel empty
  • Obsess over what we did or didn’t do
  • Loop on the question “what will they think?"

 

I don’t know about you but when I was DEEP in this state, it was not an enjoyable life by any stretch of the imagination yet it seemed as if it was a black hole I couldn’t climb out of.

Eventually, I did...

If You Listen To Your Body... (info about Monday's energy healing call)

My past 2 weeks have consisted of these highlights (there are some things I've left out...)

A weekend of a DEEP spiritual journal where I jumped back into life with a very little buffer period of rest/integrate (my own fault)

+

Tues-Thurs = Traveling with a puppy who woke up at 4:45 am 2 mornings in a row instead of his normal me dragging him out of bed after 8 am (I don’t do well on a little bit of sleep)

+

Thursday evening= Being excited to FINALLY getting to sleep only to be woken up at 2 am by a leaking ceiling (that maintenance said couldn’t be fixed till the morning)….so I was up all night

+

Friday = Dealing with maintenance & the leaking ceiling & being so exhausted it took me forever to get to sleep that night (yes, I was doing breathwork....the nervous system was really amped up!)

+

Saturday = Still in recover mode but starting to feel better

+

Sunday = Woken up to the buildings Fire Alarm at 7 am, hustled to get anything I’d want if the...

How Fear Impacts Our Lives

Last week I wrote about fear, thinking that it would be a one-week topic to work on during the Energy-Clearing call.

I talked about:

  • What fear is
  • What causes it
  • How it shows up in our lives
  • How to grow beyond it

(if you want to check it out, click here)

It turns out that fear is HUGE in many of our lives.

I received requests from people that were more than I could work on in the hour so I decided to focus on it for a second week.

While I covered a lot of info in last week's blog post, I do want to add some thoughts on fear that I didn’t mention.

In his book, “Power vs. Force” (I highly recommend the book…it can be a bit heavy but it definitely gives you an empowering lens to view the world) David Hawkins shares about the scale of human consciousness and how emotions have an energetic calibration on a scale from 20-1000 (see picture below).

Each of these levels of consciousness correlates with certain emotions, perceptions/attitudes, world views, and...
