JoAnne - 30 weeks prego!

JoAnne – 30 weeks prego!

Yes!  We’re Expecting! 


We are expecting our first baby this July.  :)  Our 20-week ultrasound tells us it is a boy.

So we’ve been in expectation and preparation mode for sure….well, at least I have.

All this preparing has got me thinking about what else I am expecting and preparing for and wondering what you are expecting and preparing for!

One of the most frequent things I share with my clients (and remind myself) is that We Get What We Expect.  One of the surest ways to show our belief and faith in what we would like to create and receive in our life is to prepare the way.  You need to show the Universe that you believe by taking actions and preparing for whatever it is you want in your life.

I realize that preparing for some things are easier than others.  Like preparing for a baby.  It’s pretty easy to guess what we as parents might need to jump into parenthood.

Where I have gotten tripped up and where I find my clients get tripped up is in the preparing for something we are not sure how to create.  Guess what!  It does not matter!  That’s right!

Being in motion signals to the Universe that you believe in what you are expecting to receive.  And our belief is one of our most powerful tools.

Our beliefs create everything in our life.  Our beliefs about what we are capable of and about what life is about is how the things that are brought into our lives show up.

That can be a hard one to swallow.  But we really are responsible for what does and does not show up in our physical reality.  If we believe it is possible then it is.

So what are you believing in, expecting and preparing for?  I’d love to know!  -joanne



Coming CleanThere’s something to be said about the Catholic ritual of confession.  Releasing oneself of burdens or fears is transformative for the one doing the releasing.  Today it is my turn to come clean.

In my quest for greater understanding and self-realization I was having a conversation with God today and uncovered a big ah-ha for me.

I spend a greater amount of time than I’d like to admit in procrastination and avoidance.  What am I avoiding?  Negative judgment from you and from myself…..mostly from myself because let’s be real you probably could care very little as to how I live my life.

I get scared to put myself out there, to be vulnerable, to really share because of what others might think of me.  Oh dear, am I really doing this?  Yep…at least until now.

An insight was shared with me today that hit me at a level deep enough to shatter this mis-belief, this fear of rejection.  Here’s the insight, “the more comfortable you can get with putting yourself out there the sooner you’ll see the results you intend”.  Does that make sense to you?  The more comfortable we get with who we really are the freer we feel and the easier it is to create what we truly want for our life.

I am the only one in the way of my dreams and you are the only one in the way of yours.  I don’t know if fear of ridicule or rejection stops you from your dreams, but it has stopped me long enough.

So it’s time to face my fear of your rejection.  Until this moment I’ve been afraid to tell you of my deepest dream, because what if it doesn’t come true….what will you think of me?!

My deepest dream is of living a lifestyle of freedom.  Freedom to live where I want.  Freedom to travel when and where I want.  Freedom to work within my passions from anywhere in the world.  Freedom to earn a substantial living for my family.

There, that wasn’t so bad!

Our culture tells us go to school, get well-educated, get a job, save for the future, etc.  Since I can remember my soul has been urging me to forgo the societal guidelines and follow my path towards that lifestyle of freedom.  And now after coming clean I can finally listen and follow that calling.

Cheers to freedom!  -joanne

Law of Attraction {I want it my way!}

January 17, 2013

If you’ve been around the personal or spiritual development community you’ve already come face-to-face with the law of attraction. The law of attraction is the law of like attracting like.  In other words, similar vibrations are drawn to one another.  That doesn’t mean that the people you attract into your life are all “like” you; […]

Live A Balanced Healthy Life

January 14, 2013

What does it take to live a balanced healthy life in today’s society?  Probably much of the same as it did in 1957, but so much has been added to our culture since then making today’s time a little more overwhelming and a little less balanced. As with ALL things in your life the power is in […]

Make Room for Something New

December 20, 2012

Is there something new you’d like to bring into your life? Making room for the new often times requires us to let go of something no longer purposeful in order to allow the “something new” into our life. Think about when you purchase a new bedroom set, you get rid of the old one or […]

The 21st Century Hippie is Holistic!

December 6, 2012

The 21st Century Hippie is Holistic!  Back in the 60’s I understand the hippie movement was for peace. Today the “hippie” movement is for living a sustainable way of life.  I call it holistic, although to some it seems hippie-ish. I’m finding my way deeper and deeper into this lifestyle. I’m not sure which habit we […]

Mastermind Your Way To Your Success

December 3, 2012

Your success comes more quickly when you use the principle of the mastermind. When I say “your success”, I mean your idea of success.  I almost dislike using the word success because it connotes so many standard ideas in the American culture.  When I use the word success I mean whatever your idea of a […]
