My life was actually kind of a mess (free exercise below)

 

Have you ever had a time in your life where things just worked? Where you met the people you were supposed to meet? Or turned a corner at the exact right time to see the exact right thing that led you down your exact right next path?

Close your eyes. And imagine it.

What was present for you at that time?

Who were you “being” at that time?

What did it feel like at that time?

In my last email, I told you about the next 40 Day Meditation Challenge I’m doing (“Enchanting & Magnetic Personality” Meditation)  and I used the word “enchanting,” which at the time felt like a fun and funny description of what Disney movies are made of.

But as I’ve been thinking about that word in preparation of this meditation and of this email, it meant so much more.

I thought about the times in my own life where I felt enchanting and magnetic. Where things came to me. Where I was literally attracting what I wanted (and some things I didn’t know I wanted until I got them).

From the time I got recruited to join a band in LA at the same exact time I wanted to do music in LA. Or the time I decided to go to LA for the summer to test out grad school and without knowing anyone there, within a week I had an internship in the psych department of UCLA, a house to live in, and a summer job. Or the time just last year that I decided on a whim to buy a house and then one month later I was in contract with my dream home. Or when I decided I wanted a new car and I didn’t want to pay for it and then a free Jeep landed on my lap.

In thinking about these things, I realized that there wasn’t anything exceptional or special about me at these times. My life wasn’t perfect and totally “in flow” when these came to me. I didn’t have the perfect vision board glued to my eyeballs 24/7. In fact, my life was actually kind of a mess (ok…totally a mess) and at a crossroads, feeling like I didn’t know what I was supposed to be doing. I didn’t have a crystal clear image or goal of what everything needed to look like, but rather a feeling inside and a faint vision. I didn’t have opportunities falling on my lap (yet).

But what I do remember having is the courage to change it up.

The courage to take a step forward even though I didn’t know where that step would lead me.

The courage to do something different than I had done before.

And in trusting that those steps forward would lead me somewhere, I became the kind of person that drew in the things I wanted. I became “enchanting.’

When I looked up the word “enchanting” in the dictionary, this is what it said…

“Delightfully charming or attractive. Captivating, engaging, adorable, irresistible.”

And when I thought about the times in my life I’ve felt those ways, and looked at what was happening in my life, it all came together.

When we are enchanting, we are attractive.

When we are attractive, we become magnets.

When we are magnetic, we literally pull things into our lives.

And THIS is what the next 40 Day Meditation is all about. It’s about pulling in those things we’ve been wanting for ourselves, not by force, but by becoming the type of person who gets them. By becoming irresistible to them. And what better time to do that then right after the New Year, when our intentions and resolutions are still fresh.

The cart for the Early Bird price opens THIS WEDNESDAY, January 17, which is when I’ll also be giving you all the details about what this course involves (I can tell you for sure it’s going to be RAD) and how to join.

But in the meantime, I wanted to give you another little exercise you can do right now to start noticing all the good stuff coming to you. I use this ALL the time to remind myself that I’m attracting great things into my life all the time. Here it is…

  1. Open up the “notes” function on your phone (or you can use good old fashioned pen and paper too)
  2. Title the Note “Evidence Log” (as in “Evidence of all the awesome things in my life”)
  3. For the next day, write down every single good thing that happens to you. It can be as small as a warm smile from a stranger and a door being held open to getting an email landing your dream job

The idea here is that the more we are aware of the good things that are in our lives, the more good things come. Try this out and I would LOVE to hear back about how this goes for you. I’ve personally found this to be one of the most impactful exercises I do!

Happy Monday and see you again on Wednesday with more info on how to become Enchanting!

Make sure you’re on my list to be the first to find out when this goes live.

I stole this from a Disney Princess

Recently I talked about how annoying New Years resolutions can be because we put way too much pressure on ourselves to have the “perfect” year, and that weight just becomes too heavy. But…at the same time, I’m a huge fan of being intentional, as I totally believe the more intentional we are, the more things come to us.

By now, we’re two weeks from the turn of the new year, and the panic is probably already starting to settle in. You might be thinking to yourself…

  • What if I don’t get all the things I wanted this year?
  • What if I’m already starting out the year lazy?
  • What if all the “releasing into the universe” what I wanted for myself for the new year didn’t reach the Big Guy up in the sky and next year I’m in the same place I was last year?
  • And then “That would be THE WORST possible scenario.”

I know you’re probably already low-grade panicking because that’s how I am. Which is why I personally am doing the next meditation I chose for the next 40 Day Challenge I’m leading in February, so that I can pretty much guarantee that Im putting myself directly in line with what I want and being super intentional with Uni about what that is, in case they didn’t hear it on December 31.

I can’t give out all the details yet but they are coming soon (next week to be exact!). And I’ll give you a little hint about what’s coming up. It’s all about you become enchanting and magnetic. Enchanting…that’s right. We’re taking “enchanting” back from the Disney princesses and woodland faeries and bringing it right into our 2018s.

But because I like to give you tangible tools that’ll help your life beyond the courses I run, in the meantime I wanted to give you a super fun exercise that I use anytime I want something in my life.

I used to grab a ton of magazines and create a vision board, but now that there is the internet, I make a Pinterest board instead to inspire me. The super cute meditation nook in my house is a direct result from my “meditation nook” board (what? You don’t have one??) :)

Here’s the exercise:

  1. Create a Pinterest board called “My Best Year Ever” (or whatever other creative title you have)
  2. Pin pictures that are:
    1. How you want to feel
    2. What you want to have
    3. What you want to do
  3. In the description of every picture say “I ……” and then fill in the blank as if it has already happened. For example “I live in a sun-filled loft in Paris for one month”
  4. Look at it every day
  5. Watch everything come to you like magic (I mean…why not shoot for the stars!)

Having a clear picture of what you want is the first step to having it so use this super fun tool to get your vision going. And then look in your inbox next week for more details about how to actually BECOME the person who draws all these things to you during our next meditation.

Happy Friday and here’s to a Happy New Year.

XO,

When your whole life changes from one decision you made

In my last post I mentioned that I manifested a free Jeep, and although I’m going to tell you the whole story soon, today I wanted to share a story about a girl who took my last 40 Day Meditation Challenge. It’s easy for me, the person selling this program, to say how it affected me, but the beauty is in the changes I’ve seen from everyone else.

It’s a bit long (but SO worth the read) so, if you don’t want to read the whole thing know this: 1) She went from an abusive relationship in a town and job she hated, to living in her dream beach town, opening up her own extremely successful and sought after business, and dating an amazing man. All within 6 months of doing this meditation. Early bird ends tomorrow so if you want to skip the story and join us, click here.

Now…onto Julie’s story…

“Almost a year ago, I participated in Sally’s Kundalini meditation program. At the time, I had recently left a long-term (7+ years) domestic relationship that was very abusive, moved to another state with hardly any of my belongings, no where to live, and no car. I was able to transfer with my job, but it was a new location, new people and everything was different.

I was renting a small, furnished guest cottage (for 3x the rent I was paying in Utah and making less money). The few things I had (mostly clothes) were spread out between a friend’s storage unit, my brother’s’ garage and a tiny closet. I was stressed about money, about where I was going to live, about the new job, about my break-up. I was extremely heartbroken and anxiety-ridden.

I bought a used car and within a couple weeks it completely stopped working and I just had to cut my financial losses. Everyday was hard just to get myself to work and have food in the fridge. I had to Uber or walk everywhere… and it was the rainy season. I think the hardest part was that I craved any sort of comfort but there was NO familiarity. Every thing in my life was changing and it was hard. At times I just wanted to sleep in my own bed or curl up in my ex-boyfriend’s arms or just eat soup out of my favorite bowl but I couldn’t have any comfort. I was drinking too much too… that’s pretty much all I could do to get out of my head.

When Sally first told me about the course, I thought there was no way I was up for any kind of challenge or extra time obligation. I was was consistently late for work already and the hours were long and sporadic. After work (and this was a pushy, stressful sales-job where I didn’t exactly fit in) I just wanted to go “home” and drink wine so I could get through the rest of the evening and sleep and do it all over again. My mornings were hectic and I couldn’t imagine having the time to sit and meditate (or even wash my hair for that matter).

I don’t remember exactly what it was that made me join, but WOW!! This mediation SAVED ME!

Let me just skip forward real quick here, so you know what I mean and then I can explain more about why I loved Sally’s program and why I think it worked for me, and will for you. Now, less than one year later, I live in my dream little cottage in Santa Barbara, I quit my job in April and opened my own awesome clothing boutique in the hottest district in town (near the beach). I’m making way more money and have been featured in 6 publications (without even doing any marketing yet). I am creating every day. I am dating an awesome man and have been traveling a little when I can. My health is excellent. I run almost everyday and do pilates and workout with a personal trainer. I have reconnected with so many friends and I feel happy and dynamic and supported and loved.

The changes I have gone through this year have been incredible. I truly think Sally’s program was the catalyst. I had never really meditated before, but here is what I found: I looked forward to it everyday. It cleared my crazy head. I was able to relax and see things more calmly and clearly and it was exciting to me to visualize the way I wanted my life to be, instead of focusing on the stress that it was.

One of my favorite parts was “taking out the trash” of my mind. I was no longer frazzled when I was getting ready for work. I was actually able to show up on time, looking and feeling good and prepared for my day. I felt a calm confidence that I just had to do what I had to do and worrying about everything else was a waste of time. It became clear to me that if I lived in the present moment and did the best I could right now, it would pave the way for the life that I know is mine. And things started to shift. It’s easy to get caught up in fear and also to be paralyzed by past events. From my experience, if you can get that stuff out of your head, you can focus on the present and do good things. Meditation is key. Meditation, to me, is getting that crap out of your head and making room for all the good stuff.

I know this is a long testimonial, but I am beyond grateful for Sally’s assistance and direction with this and I obviously think it would help anyone in any situation. It’s a great tool to learn. Another thing that’s very cool, is now, when I get stressed or overwhelmed or unsure, I know that I can choose to quiet my mind and re-direct my focus through mediation.

If you, like me, are concerned about time, I promise you’ll end up having more time to get things done because you won’t be running around all frazzled and disorganized.

I have also read so many articles about very successful people (and believe me, they are way busier than you and I) and one thing many of them have in common is they get up early and meditate.

I love you Sally!!!!! <3 <3 <3”

Reading Julie’s testimonial made me cry. Her story is so beautiful and her story is ALL of our stories. None of us have the time. All of us are going through something hard. Most of us don’t know how to get out of the hole we’re in that seems way too deep.

And what I’ve found for myself and hundreds of others who have gone through meditations with me, is sometimes, just committing to yourself that you want change to happen, changes everything.

Early bird pricing for this 40 Day Meditation Challenge (where we will be closing out 2017 by letting go of anything in the way of our best life, and intentionally creating our 2018) ends tomorrow so make sure you get on in today by clicking here and scrolling down to the “HELL YES I’M IN” button. Send me an email if you have any questions at all and I can’t wait to read your success story. :)

Love,

Sally

On not doing what all the internet marketers tell you to do

It’s 2:46 pm. Which is about 6 hours later than I intended to post this. My original intention was that I’d wake up super early. Meditate. Eat breakfast slowly. And then write to you.

I know all email marketers will tell you you to 1) Keep your posts short!; and 2) Write them ahead of time so you can bulk them and schedule them. Neither of these things I do or have ever done, partially because that’s just not my style, and mostly because I like being in the moment when I share with you.

What I felt yesterday is almost always not what I feel today. What I felt this morning at 6 am is not what I’m feeling right now at 2:39. So it doesn’t make sense to me to write you a week ahead of time.

The reason I was supposed to send this email early was because I’m here to tell you that the cart to my 40 Day Meditation challenge is OPEN AS OF RIGHT NOW!!! I was supposed to tell you to make sure to jump in on the EARLY BIRD PRICE HAPPENING ONLY FOR ONE WEEK.

And I was supposed to tell you that first thing in the morning so you get it since everyone checks their emails from bed. By 2:39 Mountain time, you’re probably annoyed with work, at lunch, not opening your emails, or going home for the day to completely unplug. None of these statistics are good for you opening my email.

So…I was going to wait until tomorrow. When the email marketers tell me it’s more fresh. When it’s more likely that you’ll see it.

But what I’ve decided is that I want to share all the moments with you. Even the ones where I skipped out on the email I was supposed to write because frankly, there was something more important going on. FAMILY. My cousin and his father in law (who I had never met and who is completely delightful) came in for a surprise visit and I wanted to spend time with them getting my new (FREE!) Jeep up and running (story about that coming soon).

And so even though at times my mind wandered to feeling frustrated my email hadn’t gone out and I hadn’t told you yet about the 40 Day Meditation Challenge, mostly I was really focused on being present with these two, amazing humans.

I asked questions about Arnold’s life. I joked around with my cousin Cody. I took them for a drive through historic Bozeman and told them my favorite stories about the oldest buildings in town, including where the brothels used to be. We joked about the weather. We had an incredible breakfast at my favorite place in town. We went to Auto Zone, twice. Cody taught me how to re-program the keyless entry so that when I press the button my seat will be in the perfect position for me. We shivered in subzero temperatures, and gave each other nice long hugs before they drove away.

It was moments like these that made me realize that this is EXACTLY the email I’m supposed to send to you. Because these are the moments of life that are really important. And we only know that when we are intentional with our lives and our time. And one way to do that is through meditating.

Last year when I did this same meditation that I’m going to be doing with you starting in a couple weeks, I intended that I would have more meaningful relationships in my life. That I would be the type of person to attract quality people into my life. That “family” would come into my life.

Things don’t always look the exact way you picture, but in looking back on the last time I did this 40 day meditation, I can see that everything I hoped for myself showed up in the exact way it needed to to get me where I needed to go in life.

Since doing it my life has completely changed for the better. And I’m not the only one. I will be sharing some incredible stories with you really soon but in the meantime I’m here to tell you that the CART IS NOW OPEN FOR EARLY BIRD PRICING for my 40 Day Meditation.

Here are the details:

  • 40 Days of “Beaming & Creating The Future” meditation where we will clear out all we need to release and let go from 2017 and envision and literally “beam” into the Universe what we want for ourselves for 2018 (seriously…awesome)
  • Access to this course from a membership, login site (available year round so you can take it time and time again)
  • Online Facebook community for daily inspiration, check-ins, and journal prompts (and daily emails in case you don’t like using FB)
  • Weekly Live Q & A’s with me
  • Tons of support for these last 40 days of the year

Get the full list of details by clicking right here.

2018 is coming whether we like it or not. Let’s get SUPER clear what we want for ourselves and let’s let go of anything that is holding us back from that. And let’s all do that together.

The EARLY BIRD price is up for only one week. It’s only $87 (which the marketers also tell me I’m not supposed to tell you, but you know what? I DO WHAT I WANT!). Which means it’s only $2.18 per day. $2.18 to have a better life. To not go into 2018 letting life just sweep you up in the chaos. $2.18 to say “I’m ready to be who I want and have the life I deserve.”

I’d say in the grand scheme of things, that’s pretty affordable. So, my darling, are you in??

I, of course, want you to sign up today so I can start welcoming you in now and you can start in on my FAVORITE part of this meditation (it involves Pinterest but that’s all I’m telling you until you join us), but technically you have a little over a week to join us (marketers are yelling at me right now). BUT, the early bird goes away soon.

So…if you have ANY questions, reply to this email. Otherwise, jump on in and join the 20 people we already have joining us (repeat meditators get first dibs! That can be you next year!) and let’s get started creating our ideal futures together.

XO,

Sally

THIS is the moment I wanted to share with you

I had a completely different post ready to go for you today. But as I sit here at my kitchen table, with my green tea steaming in my favorite mug to my left, my new green sharpie in my hand writing in my journal to my right, and looking up to my backyard completely blanketed with snow right in front of me, this moment is the one I want to share with you.

The sun hasn’t come up yet, but it’s not dark. It’s in that in between place of not quite morning yet and definitely not night. Every moment I look outside, it’s a little bit brighter, but the sky is gray and cold.

Yesterday was our first big snow of the year. The kind of snow where you know it’s here to stay. Not the kind of snow we get in October where it could all melt away within hours and I could be on my motorcycle by the afternoon.

No. This is the kind of snow where you know it’s time to bring the shovels out from storage, and start looking for new winter boots.

I’ve been in Montana for five winters, so I’m not new to how it all goes, but this year feels really different. Colder. More snowy already. I don’t feel ready for it.

And it might be this feeling of resistance or it might be where my mind is at but I was awaken in the middle of the night last night by bad nightmares that sent me to sleep paralysis, which kind of like the time of day right now, is an in between time between being awake and being asleep.

Your eyes are open, but your brain isn’t awake. You’re not sure if you’re still dreaming, but you can’t speak or think clearly. This used to happen to me in my old apartment on Main Street that was confirmed to be haunted by an energy clearer I hired once.

Needless to say, when I wake up from a night like this, I’m a bit shaken up. I wake up with that feeling of anxiety or dread in my chest, for no good apparent reason, since things in my life aren’t all that different than any other day.

I ask myself “Is it because I just had to pay my quarterly taxes and my property taxes are due and I had to deal with health insurance yesterday and being an adult homeowner doing it on my own feels hard?”

And then “when it feels hard I get frustrated that I don’t have a partner and have to do it all on my own…”

And then “I’ll ALWAYS have to do it on my own…”

And then down the rabbit hole I go of all my biggest fears until the anxiety builds up in my chest.

And so I do the only thing I know how to do now…meditate. I begin long deep belly breathing. I go back to a meditation that I taught in class this week about “removing haunting thoughts” by recognizing what they are, forgiving yourself and anyone else involved, and then handing to trouble over to a higher source. And then I listen to one of my favorite mantras that is about removing the blocks to abundance. And I go back to long deep breathing, shining more light on the feelings that are happening, not making them wrong, but loving them and myself the whole time.

I begin to calm down. Feel better even. And not in that fake way where you just tell yourself you’re ok to “fake it til you make it” but in that way where you know that it’s ok to feel exactly what you’re feeling, and it’s also ok to get up and decide to face it all.

So I throw the blankets off and get out of bed, but as I’m doing that, I see the abandoned book on my nightstand and something tells me to pick it up. It’s Byron Katie’s book “I Need Your Love, Is That True?” and I read the chapter I left off on and it has an exercise where you write down all the things that you wouldn’t want anyone to know about you.

And I do that. From my kitchen table, with my green tea steaming to my left, and the view of the snow-filled back yard right in front of me. And I discover that there is a lot in there that I didn’t realize. And that it feels good to just become aware and write it down, because I know that the more light you shine on something, the easier it is for the darkness to subside. Even if at first what you see in the light is painful.

And I realize that I want to share THIS moment with you. The one that feels a little dark and alone, but also emerging light. It’s inevitable. No matter what I do or what happens in my life, day is going to come.

And I wonder what in your life feels like this. What place you’re at. What darkness you’re feeling. Or what lightness you want to feel more of. And I imagine that no matter what your particular situation is, you might recognize some of my story in your own life.

And, like me, you find solace in knowing that there is something you can DO to examine your life and move through it and be intentional about creating what you want. To me, this is the value of meditating.

It doesn’t make us have a perfect life. But it does let us look at the life we have through fresh eyes and it helps us to be really real about our emotions so that we can decide, and be intentional with how we want to proceed.

And as a goal oriented person, this works for me. I imagine it probably would for you too.

In my last email I mentioned something exciting that was coming up and I’m happy to say that what is coming up is very much in line with this.

It’s all about being intentional with the life we want to have, especially going into the New Year, and about clearing the things we want to let go of from this year. And it’s all wrapped up in a really potent 40 day meditation that has proven results, some of which I’ll share with you very soon.

I’m not quite ready to open the cart yet, but I will have more info very soon. In the meantime, mark your calendars for November 22, which is when we’ll start creating our futures, together.

Make sure you sign up for my list and look for an email next week that will give you all the details. And in the meantime, I hope you enjoy today, snowy gray sky or sunny blue sky.

And as always, I love hearing from you. So please reply to this message and let me know what resonates with you from this email, and definitely let me know if you’re interested in what’s coming up so I can put you on the VIP list. Cuz…who doesn’t want to feel all special? :)

Send me warm and cozy vibes!
Sally
