is for the average.
And you are neither.
a powerful leader
an inspired artist
a brilliant creative
a conscious rebel
who's ready to change the world.
Whether it’s your personal world, the “world” closest to you, or our global community, you know you’re here for bigger things.
And you know you’ll never create those expansive experiences just “going along to get along.” There’s more to life than that.
No more status quo.
No more conforming to other people's ideas of who and what you should be … and how you should live your life.
No more smiling and nodding in feigned or half-hearted agreement with ways of leading, Being, and doing that don’t reflect the full creativity and power of your Soul.
It’s time to step more fully, powerfully, intentionally into the current of your own Soul’s passions, purpose, and strengths — to flow more freely with the current of Source within you.
This isn't always easy, especially when you're surrounded by people who just don't get it… or who are too fearful to let go of what has always been in exchange for something new.
But you know, deep down, that it's always more rewarding in the end...
...because it's who you were born to Be,
and what you were born to do.
You were not born to conform.
You were born to transform:
Your own life, from the inside out.
And then marvel at how your brilliant, unique, playful, passionate life then automatically affects and transforms the world around you.
Only you can do that.
So, welcome. This is another step in your journey,
and I'm thrilled you made it here.
Sending you love, light,
and inspired belief in who You Are.
"Engaging, direct, uplifting..."
