I Turned Over My Life To A Guy With A Backpack (My Wildheart Adventure)



Generally speaking, anytime I’m in an airplane, my main goal is to stay INSIDE the plane.

Meaning, my goal is to remain in my safe little tin-can cocoon that is flying through the sky.

I don’t desire to open the doors and experience what 30,000 feet in the air feels like. In fact, that’s the last thing I want when I’m flying.


Which is why it was so weird when I decided to go skydiving a few months ago.

Well, actually, I should say that my friend decided it was time for me to go skydiving.

He had just been diagnosed with cancer and had skydiving on his bucket list, and therefore decided that I had it on mine too.

(Which I actually did, although I was moving at a snail’s pace towards this “dream.”)

To be REALLY honest…

When I created my bucket list, I didn’t really think too much about what I put on there.

Skydiving was one of those things that felt like, “Yeah I should totally do that!” but not because I had the deep desire to fling myself out of a moving plane… More like because a lot of people do it and it seems cool and must be an experience worth having.

So when it came time for me to actually put my money where my bucket list was, I WAS SCARED.

So scared that I literally prayed (TO GOD…no less) that it would rain that day so we couldn’t jump.

I prayed to get sick.

Or that my friend would get a cold or something.

(Bad…I know. But anything so we wouldn’t have to jump!)

Alas, I woke up that Saturday morning to a perfect warm, bluebird-friendly Montana day.

Dammit. I thought.

The whole drive to the drop zone, I was quiet.

Trying not to show my friend that I was scared.

Trying not to shake the entire car with my nervous foot twitch.

And when we got to the jump site, my stomach dropped. There was no turning back. They had already checked us in.

We filled out the paperwork. Me…still as silent as can be.

The guys who worked there were all cracking jokes. I’m sure they get this all the time. People being scared. For them, it’s just another day at work.

I watched one of the guys pack up the parachute. Just like that. Laying it on the ground and folding it up and putting it back in the backpack-looking thing, like it was no big deal.

I thought,

“What if he just broke up with his girlfriend and is so distracted and misses a step?”


“What if he’s hungover and forgets an important part?”

Essentially this guy had my life in his hands and was folding it up into a little backpack as we spoke.

SO bizarre.

And then they strapped me in and put me into a tiny little plane.

blog 11.11 top

And when I say tiny, I mean TINY.

Like there is only room for four people in it…total.

We took off and my heart was pounding and I was trying to act normal, but inside, I was terrified. And still in a bit of disbelief that in a few short moments I would be jumping out of an airplane.

The ground beneath us got further and further away so that pretty soon, all we could see was colors. And land formations. And segmented plots of land. And sky.

Granted, it was Montana so it was beautiful, but as we got higher and higher, I got more and more scared.

Until suddenly, I remembered something that my friend told me before I left the house.

He said:

“Enjoy every last second of the experience. Have your eyes open the whole time. Be calm. And be happy knowing that you’re about to see a view that only birds get to see. You will be flying, so don’t you DARE close your eyes.”

And so in those last moments in the plane, I repeated that over and over again. I meditated.

I told myself I was going to be just fine.

And a few minutes later, it was GO time.

It was my job to open the airplane door, which entailed rolling up a plastic covering that went over the door.

My tandem partner, Willie, then told me to scoot out over the edge of the plane and hold on to him. He would be sitting on the edge of the plane while my feet and bum dangled over.

The air was colder than I expected. The view was just as scary (and just as beautiful) as I imagined it would be.

And as I scooted to the edge of that plane, I knew there was no turning back.

This was happening whether I liked it or not.

And so I took a deep breath, feeling both scared and a bit calm.

Willie counted to three. And then rolled us out of the plane.

blog 11.11 first image

We did three spins.

And then… the strangest thing happened.

It was calm. Almost meditative.

And as I watched the plane get further and further away from us, all I could feel was pure presence.

I was THERE, right then. And nowhere else.

blog 11.11 second image

And here’s the thing I realized.

I didn’t have that “stomach dropping” feeling, like if I’d been on a roller coaster. Rather, it was more like… floating.

And I did that for awhile.

And then…

I was just… FLYING.

blog 11.11 third image

And you know what?

I had the BIGGEST smile on my face.

Because I knew I had done something that scared the shit out of me. That I had done something I never thought I could.

And because… FLYING!

And I kept my eyes open so I wouldn’t miss one second of the experience. And I took it all in.

And then when I landed I had an exhilarating mix of emotions.

Pride, excitement, adrenaline, accomplishment, anticipation of doing it again.

And I realized that something bigger had happened that would eclipse all those other emotions.

It’s a bit hard to articulate, but the best way I know to describe my mindset about this experience is…

If I can literally throw myself out of an airplane…I can do anything.


Think about it.

Most people fear getting into an airplane accident. At least once on every flight I take, I think of crashing, or the fact it’s so bizarre I’m in a tin can in the sky.

If I can throw myself OUT OF one of those flying tin cans, on purpose—and not spontaneously combust…

And more than that—if I can enjoy it and find it meditative…

Then I can get through anything.

Skydiving was possibly the scariest (physical) thing I had done up to that point.

And I got through it with relative ease and grace.

I was scared beyond belief, but I did it. And because I did it, my life is richer and more beautiful than before.

The scary part was everything leading up to the jump. The anticipation of “all that could possibly go wrong”. The assumption that it was going to be scary and dangerous.

But the jump itself? And after the jump?

It was pure presence and freedom and beauty.

And you know what? That’s what life is like.

We live most of our days in our heads, going over and over all the things that could possibly go wrong.

The perceived (and totally made up) conclusions about what it’s all going to be like.

We imagine ourselves in pain, or hurting, and so we let that stop us from even getting to the airport.

(That’s what I was doing when I was praying for bad weather, or cold and flu season, or ANY excuse not to go through with my plans, on the way to my skydiving adventure.)

But if we don’t take the leap, we won’t learn the most important lesson of all.

Which is?

If you don’t jump, you can’t fly. (Tweet this!)

And even more important–if you don’t fly, you don’t experience all that your life has to offer.

And if you don’t experience all that your life has to offer, then you’re just going through the motions. Filling the minutes, unconsciously, until you die.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to spend my entire life not really LIVING.

And speaking of living life to its fullest, that’s exactly why I created the Wildheart Revolution.

Skydiving may not be on your bucket list, but what IS? And what steps are you taking to cross items off that list, one by one?

If it’s taking a long time to make your dreams happen (or you just REALLY want to kick those dreams into high gear) then I’d love for you to consider taking a “leap” into the Wildheart Revolution.

I know it can sometimes actually seem scary to join a new community or program, or make ANY sort of decision (coaching, therapy, bodywork, you name it) that will support you in being the best you can be.

I also know that it’s a million percent worth it.

Because when are you going to start living full out, if not right NOW? (Tweet this!)

If you’re already moving towards all the exciting things you want for your life, that’s awesome, and I’d still love to see you inside the Revolution! Because we all run into snags here and there and need a strong and supportive community to help us get through those rough spots.

And if you’re already a Wildheart, or you just want to add a comment below, I’d LOVE to hear from you.

What big “leap” have you taken lately that scared you senseless, but you did it anyway? Or what leap do you WANT to take, but just feel too scared to do it?

Share baby, share!

Oh, and speaking of sharing… here is a video of my skydiving experience, to inspire YOU to take a big leap of your own today. :)

Hope to see you on the inside of the Revolution, Wildheart.

The ONLY Thing You Need To Do To Get Anything You Want In Life



Yesterday, I graduated.

I was on my motorcycle, about to make a left hand turn onto our Main Street in town. The light turned green, I kicked my gear into first, rolled on the throttle, checked for traffic, pointed my head in the direction I wanted to go, and rolled on through. Smooth as can be.

Now, I know this might be sound all that exciting to you. But for the first time that I could remember, I felt confident in that turn. I was like “yeah I got this” and rolled on the throttle as though I was an old pro just doing my thang.

Up to that point, every turn I ever made on my motorcycle was nerve-wracking. I’d have to talk myself up a bit (“you can do this…look, roll on the throttle, go”). I was stiff. A bit wobbly. Trying to remember all the pointers from my motorcycle safety class. I felt like a beginner.

And in that moment, yesterday, I smiled inside my little helmet. And I said to myself “I DID IT!”

I had graduated. From conscious incompetence to conscious competence. And it felt freakin good.

So how did I do it?

I kept getting on that bike and riding. Again and again.

Until my actions became second nature. Until I didn’t have to think about it. Until I didn’t have to say “look, throttle, go” in my head anymore because my bike and I were one. We’d done this many times before together, and now….it was no big deal.

And it’s the same with anything in life that at first feels super hard, scary, and impossible, but is like no big deal after you’ve done it for awhile.

I felt that way with coaching. With yoga. With shooting. With heartbreak, traveling alone, falling in love after said heartbreak. With blogging, being vulnerable, moving to Montana, meditating regularly (ESPECIALLY this one), exercising consistently, and a million other things.

My friends, personal clients, and Wildhearts have all had similar experiences. And I’ve discovered something interesting by watching them and observing my own life.

I’ve been a coach for over 5 years now. I’d guess that that has me coaching probably over about 2000 hours.

And in that time I’ve learned that, really, there is only ONE thing that people care about.

How to get from point A to point B.

Think about it…we ALL want something. We all want Point B. That bigger vision of what we see for ourselves. The shiny dream life we all imagine.

Whether it be a better body, better finances, a relationship, a baby, a new car, enough money to go on that retreat you’ve been eyeing, more freedom. And on and on.

And yet, where the pain and suffering comes in, is that we’re at Point A…and wanting to be somewhere else.

As a coach, I often get asked “HOW?” How do I get what I’m really wanting? What steps do I need to take? How do I get there?

And what I’ve seen is that everyone wants the shortcut. They want the answer that is going to save them and fix whatever Point A problem they’re facing.

And what I’ve actually found is that it is 100% possible to get to Point B, but not the way most people are doing it.

In fact it’s way more simple than you might imagine.

The way you get from Point A to Point B is practice taking action. Every day. (Tweet this!)

That’s it.

We tend to think change needs to be some grandiose thing that happens, that all of a sudden, everything is different now.

But the truth is, change happens when you consistently practice doing and being the thing you want.

About a year ago, I couldn’t get through a five-minute meditation. Now…I meditate at least 30 minutes a day, on top of whatever Kundalini thing I’m doing. And crave more. How did I get there? From doing TONS of five-minute meditations. Over and over again. Every day. Even when I didn’t feel like it.


About a year ago I almost had a heart attack every time I turned a corner on my motorcycle. Now…I roll through the intersection with ease and confidence. How did I get there? I rode the hell out of my motorcycle. Over and over. Even when I felt scared.

Think about the actor Chris Pratt. Mega superstar from the movie Guardians of the Galaxy (and mega hottie). Think he just came up on the scene?? NOPE. He was at it for 15 years before he got his major star status. He showed up for his roles, again and again. (I’m guessing, even when he didn’t feel like it.)

Life is full of stories like this. There’s no such thing as “overnight” success. And yet people want it. They want those six figures businesses, like yesterday, and the book deal after only being in business five minutes.

And the truth is…you CAN reach superstar status, but the way to do it is from practicing. It’s from continuously working on your stuff over and over and over again until it’s at star level.

Your revolutionary life isn’t going to happen overnight. You’re not going to wake up one day and be famous. Or find that one idea that your whole career is going to hinge on.

Your revolutionary life is going to happen because you’ve done the work. You’ve shown up for it every single day, even when you didn’t feel like it. (Tweet this!)

And the good news is that you can start TODAY.

Now, while you’re on that wild ride from Point A to Point B, it’s going to feel daunting. And scary. Like you can’t possibly get on that yoga mat today and start meditating. And that’s ok. It’s all normal.

That’s why you’re going to need support. Because we all know that it’s much, much easier to stay under the covers when we’re scared. You need people who will draw you out and remind you why you started on this road to begin with.

I’ve built an entire community, The Wildheart Revolution, around providing that support. Because I want everyone to live out whatever revolution is calling them (even if it’s just a quiet one!).

Either way, it’s crucial that you find the support and accountability you need to stay consistent and to keep taking action towards your dreams. Every day. Even when you don’t feel like it.

So my challenge for you today is simple (not easy, but simple): what action can you take TODAY, and every day, toward something you want to have, be, or do in your life?

What will you commit to doing repeatedly until it becomes a part of you?

Let me know in the comments below. I’d love to hear what actions you’re taking toward your very own revolutionary life.

Don’t Tell Me What To Do: A Guide To Being Spiritual


I had a conversation recently that really pissed me off. I’d like to share it with you, not just to rant or anything, but because what I realized as a result of that conversation could be helpful to YOU, too.

But before I jump into that, a quick story:

Back in high school I was confused. I mean, who isn’t confused at age 16?

But seriously, the reason I was confused was because I didn’t fit in anywhere — but not in the way you are probably thinking.

I was in the “popular” crowd. I was a cheerleader. I dated the running back. I had tons of friends. I seemed like I was fitting in just fine.

But yet, I didn’t feel like I belonged anywhere. I didn’t know how to reconcile the different aspects of myself.

The fact that I loved cheer, but also loved blasting Fugazi one day, and Snoop Dogg the next, out the windows of my 4-door Honda Accord as I drove out of the school parking lot.

Or that I was highly intelligent, jonesing for existential literature, writing dark poetry about death and dying, and also the one first up on the keg-stand at any party, smoking like a chimney and playing with my tongue ring.

And even throughout all these years after high school, I’ve always felt multifaceted.

Not just being or liking ONE thing. And getting a lot of attitude about that.

As though a person who is a popular cheerleader can’t also be smart, edgy, and dynamic. That people won’t accept me and I’m somehow not “ok” if I don’t fit into an understandable box that they are comfortable with.

And so I’ve spent a lot of time just being a chameleon, and fitting into whatever particular group I happen to be hanging out with at the time.

Surfers? Sure…I like the beach. Goths? Yeah, I can dig me some Doc Marten’s. Punks? Hell yeah I like The Descendents. Jocks? Yeah I know a thing or two about football. Musicians? Yep…I’ve been in a touring band.

And because I can fit in anywhere, many times over the years I’ve felt like I actually fit in nowhere. That I could like whatever the group I was with liked, but not to the FULL extent.

Like I could talk surfing but when it came down to it, I didn’t actually want to get in the water.

And somehow because of this, I felt less than. Not good enough. Like since there were so many things that interested me, that I actually didn’t have A “thing.”

There was no box to fit myself into, so I stopped looking for my own box and stuffed myself into whatever boxes were already out there.

Well, surprise! Life hasn’t changed a whole lot since high school. People still want to tell us how to be. What is acceptable and what isn’t.

And lately, as I grow and explore in a new phase of my spiritual practice, I am right back in high school, not seeming to fit in.

I don’t meditate the way I’m “supposed to.” I don’t do all the things good yogis do. But yet, I feel closer to god and more myself than I ever have. And I love it.

And remember at the beginning of this post, I mentioned I’d gotten pissed off about something recently?

Well, not long ago I got into a conversation online that got me thinking. A LOT. About spirituality.

Basically, the point of the discussion was that to call yourself a spiritual person, you shouldn’t then like or want material things like expensive shoes or nice cars. In other words, how can you be spiritual and like stuff like that?

And it hit me in my heart. Because I had already been thinking those thoughts. Like:

“If I truly am spiritual, should I give all my messages away for free and not desire to make money?”

“If I truly am spiritual should I not eat meat?”

“If I truly am spiritual does that mean I can’t drink whiskey sometimes?”

And so when this conversation happened, it was like the devil on my shoulder speaking to the exact fears I was already having…which was...I’m not spiritual enough. I’m not doing it right. That other people know more than me how to do it.

And after I left the conversation, I had all kinds of thoughts and feelings. And ultimately I adore SO MUCH that this conversation happened because I was able then to really decide how I felt about it all.

And here’s the thing…I think blindly following the rules is a bunch of bullshit. (Tweet This!)

Doing things just because someone told you you “should,” without actually questioning whether or not you believe in that is the least spiritual thing on the planet.

To me…spirituality is individual to each person. It’s about love. It’s about being the fully expressed version of yourself. It’s about YOUR OWN relationship to god/divine/universe. And that relationship is formed by you. Just like how your partnership/marriage/relationship isn’t going to look like the next person’s, neither is your spirituality.

And that’s ok.

And it’s non-judgment, to the best of your ability. That means not judging other people’s spirituality and not judging your own.

I’m not saying to turn your back on what your teachers tell you, but I am saying, go inside and see if it resonates with you. Explore for yourself. Pay attention more to what feels good and right to you than to what everyone else is telling you to do.

Find your own mountain to stand on. Find your own outfit to wear. Do your own prayers. Come back to the things that resonate so strongly in your heart and bones that you giggle with delight when you’re experiencing them, and leave the rest behind.

No one gets to tell you who you are and no one gets to tell you how to be. (Tweet this)

YOU get to decide.

And if that doesn’t look like what everyone else is doing, then so be it. That’s ok. You’re no less lovable, spiritual or wonderful because of it.

And to me…THAT’S Wildheart.

Being who you are. Being connected. Being aware. Being truthful. Loving and accepting yourself for exactly who you are. Seeking. Exploring.

For me…my exploration has led me to so many forms of “spirituality” I never knew existed.

My motorcycle teaches me presence, because not being in the moment is literally a matter of life or death. It connects me to my surroundings. It makes my heart smile. It’s FUN.

Dancing is where I get to express my heart. Where I don’t think about anything else other than being exactly where I am. It’s communication with my partner. With spirit. It’s movement and love embodied. It’s freedom.

Meditating in my bed, laying down, right after I wake up is where so much of my messages and inspiration come from. Kundalini is where my soul feels connected to source, and I feel free from my old pain and wounds.

That’s my spirituality. The dualities of my fully expressed personality. My own relationship to the divine. Learning to truly love myself and others. Practicing non-judgement and noticing when I don’t.

What I don’t love about the spiritual community is when I feel like there is judgement. Or rules.

When one human is telling another human how their own personal relationship with god/spirit/divine should be…that’s like saying someone else knows better than me what I should do with my body. Or how I should decorate my house. Or whether or not I should get married and have kids.

It’s another version of judgement. Control. And someone else telling me what to do with my life and how to be. It’s the same idea as saying, “In order to be a professional business person you should wear a suit,” or “Don’t write on your blog about crying on the floor over some dude.”

But in my world, it’s my decision and my life. And my business. So I get to do it however I want to do it. As long as what I’m doing aligns with my values and greater purpose, I’m good.

As long as I’m feeling good about my own relationship with my own spirit, then I’m good. And I don’t actually need someone else telling me how to talk to my god. That’s personal. Just like how it’s personal what I do in my business or whether or not I sit or lie down during meditation.

And to me…this is what I love about the Wildheart Revolution private community/coaching/lifestyle tribe. It’s a Revolution of self-acceptance, love, worthiness and deciding for yourself how the fuck you want to go through life.

It’s the place where YOU get to decide. How to be, who you are, what to feel, what to believe in. You get to explore those things, because maybe you’re not sure. Maybe you believe what everyone is saying is best for you, but maybe you don’t. This is place to be to find that out and then go LIVE IT in the real world.

How To Manifest Like a Mutha In Four Easy Steps



The other day, something so unbelievable happened, that I still don’t really know what to think about it.

I was given a free, 1983 Honda Nighthawk motorcycle, in mint condition from a complete stranger, essentially just for walking down the street at exactly the right moment.


This also happened to be pretty much the exact motorcycle I had been googling and wanting for months prior. And it happened two days after I said to myself “I really wish I had another bike so my friends could ride with me and I don’t have to ride alone all the time.”

The story on how it happened is a bit long (watch the video below for the full recap) but here’s the gist…

I was walking down the street with my helmet in hand, going towards my bike. An older gentlemen was walking the opposite direction with a helmet in his hand. Our eyes met and we smiled at each other (in the “you’re in the club nod” kinda way).

We struck up a conversation. He showed me his bike and told me the story of the 70 year old woman who gave it to him because she already had too many bikes and asked him to find a good home for her baby. She had ridden over 77,000 on the bike and was the original owner.

He asked me if I wanted to take it for a spin. I did. Came back after doing so and gave him the keys back and said “thanks! That was awesome!”

About two hours later he called me and asked if I wanted to have the bike. About an hour after that, I was riding home on my brand new bike.

Here’s the full story.

He texted me later and told me to: “become aware of what you did or thought that created today for you, and do more of that.”

 And that’s what I spent the rest of the day doing.

Now…this, in and of itself is pretty incredible. But what happened before and after are the most notable things about it.

 To me, this situation was a divine message. It was way too magical to just be a coincidence.

And as I was thinking of this, so many things popped into my mind as to what might have created this. And I’d love to share it all with you.

Here’s my “How-To” Guide on Getting Free Stuff

 1) Know that you are worthy of great things

After a very tough six months, including an even more tough summer, I was starting to feel like I would never get out of the hole I was in. I felt scared, alone, undeserving, unlovable. I felt hopeless. And I worried that I’d stay in that place forever.

 Through a ton of reflection and meditation, I realized that a lot of these emotions stemmed from the general feeling of unworthiness. That I didn’t think I deserved to have the kind of relationship and life I truly wanted. That I wasn’t worth being loved in the way I imagined for myself.

So, about a month prior to receiving the bike, I had been repeating the mantra “I am worthy” to myself anytime I felt my thoughts wander to the other, more harmful places. I didn’t know if it was “working” or not (and I wasn’t even focusing on what “working” meant), I just knew that that thought felt much better to me than “I am unlovable and will be alone forever.”

2. Work on your ability to RECEIVE

I’m the type of person that doesn’t like to be out of control, and who doesn’t love reaching out for help. I’m also the type of person that feels like I always need to “even the score.” That if someone does something nice for me, I must make sure I do something equally nice for them to “repay” the nice deed they did. And it comes from a place of “pay back” instead of pure joy of giving.

AND…if I don’t think I can’t repay them, I end up feeling horribly guilty.

You might be thinking… “yeah, that makes sense, you totally SHOULD do nice things for people if they do nice things for you” but if you look closer, it’s another form of not feeling worthy, and it’s not entirely true.

If someone wants to do something nice for me it is OK FOR ME TO RECEIVE IT, and say thank you, and leave it at that. (Click to tweet that)

It doesn’t always have to have the energy around it that I must “pay it back,” or even “pay it forward,” as if the nice things I do on a daily basis aren’t enough to deserve beautiful things in my life. This is how some girls get in trouble doing things they don’t want to do. Like “well he paid for my dinner so I should go home with him to pay him back” or any other variation of that concept.

 It’s a problem. And it is a worthiness problem.

If we felt worthy, we’d be able to receive gifts, knowing that we deserve the beauty that is coming our way. We would do nice things for people because it feels good and not because we feel like we have to.

3. Be grateful for what you already have

Ok this one tends to be tricky for people to understand. And it was for me the first time I heard it. But the idea is that in order to get things you want, you need to be grateful of the things you already have.

This is all about the idea that what you put out there, is what you get back. If you’re constantly putting out there that you DON’T HAVE all this stuff that you want, then you’re going to keep finding instances where this is true.

But if you change the conversation to “I am so grateful for all this amazing stuff in my life” you are putting it out there that you HAVE. And that brings in more havingness.

About one to two months before I got this bike, I included a gratitude practice into my daily journaling. AND, I resurrected something I used to do, which was put a weekly gratitude post out to my community. I would say anything from “I’m grateful for my good hair today” to “I’m grateful to have such a loving and supportive family.” Literally anything I could think of.

One month later, I received this bike.

4. Surrender and trust that the universe has your back

This concept is not an easy one for me but it’s one I had been working on all summer. We humans tend to think we have a ton of control in our lives. And so we try to exercise that control on the regular. We micromanage every little detail of our lives, and that often comes in the form of worrying.

Worrying that we don’t have enough money, or enough love, or enough everything. And so we think those types of thoughts all day long. “I’ll never have what I want,” “I’ll always be alone,” etc. And then we go into panic mode.

And try to “fix” or control whatever thing we feel like we’re lacking. But simply trying to “fix” it is denying the fact that we’re exactly where we need to be and it’s simply a shift in perspective and thoughts that can make the change we’re hoping to see.

About two months before I got the bike, I began to say to myself “my best life is already selected for me and I’m being guided in the exact right direction to receive it.”

I did the very best I could to LET GO of what I was hanging onto. A relationship that wasn’t working and a person that didn’t want it to. And the idea that there was something I could do to change that.

I literally said out loud “Ok Uni…I surrender to you. GUIDE ME.”

It was like I had hit rock bottom. Literally on the floor. Having nowhere else to go and nothing else to do other than let it all go.

And I really needed a sign that things were good in the world. And that I was going to be ok. And I asked for it. And less than a month later I received this amazing act of kindness from a stranger. And rode of into the sunset rainbow.



So here’s the thing. I’m not saying that there is some kind of formula that will bring free and amazing gifts into your life.

But I AM saying that it is absolutely possible to create what you want. And it’s an inside job. (click to tweet this)

I tell my Wildheart’s all the time that what I’ve found to be the way to change is by trying a million different things (throw spaghetti at the wall, if you know that reference), and see what sticks.

I’m not sure exactly which thing brought this good fortune into my life, but I believe it was a combination of all of them. And mostly, the shift of energy in my life.

We talk about this stuff on the regular in the Wildheart Private Community. It’s what we do. Help each other to make more magic. Check it out. Join us. I dare you.

I’m a bit embarrassed to tell you this



Exactly one year ago today, I woke up in an absolute panic. For many reasons, but one of them being I couldn’t pay my rent. I had $700 to my name. And my parents had just written me a check for $1000 to “get me by.” Which embarrassed me. Humbled me. And scared me.

I had stopped doing one on one coaching so I could build this little thing called “The Wildheart Revolution,” which at the time was a semi-vague idea of an online space where people could go to get the help they need, in ANY area of their life, at ANY time of the day, at a price ANYONE could afford.

I had never done anything like it before. And more than that, nothing like it had been done before by anyone. Not in the way I envisioned it.

I didn’t have a roadmap. I didn’t have any clue if it was going to “work” or if anyone was going to want to be involved in it. All I had was a vision, a dream, and this guiding light saying “YES. THIS.”

And so I woke up in my bed, that morning one year ago with anxiety in my chest. Tears. I was afraid to open my computer. Afraid that the email I had just sent about Wildheart had fallen on deaf ears. Afraid that no one would “come to my party.” Afraid that I didn’t know what I was doing and this thing called Wildheart would fall apart and crash and burn.

But as the day went on, the member numbers grew. 5. 10. 20. 40. 60. And beyond. The energy buzzed. Tears rolled down my face. I couldn’t believe that it had worked. That people wanted in.

I celebrated and laughed and cried and watched in awe as amazing person after amazing person entered into the wild ride of the Wildheart Revolution, not having had any clue what the damn thing was all about. But with a feeling inside that just said “YES. THIS.”

As I look back on this past year, I see a year of change. Transition. Growth. Learning. Beauty. Vulnerability.

My entire life is different. What started out as an idea is now a sacred and special place where people are sharing their dreams and their hearts and really showing up and making changes in their lives in a real way.

We now have a brilliant team of Wildheart coaches (Natalie Vartanian and Ellen Ercolini) who coach on business and love and tarot and support the group.

We have subgroups (book club, meditation club, moms club). Community run activities like the Weekly Roundup (an email with all the details from the previous week’s Wildheart happenings), and accountability thread.

We have guest coaches. We have a Wildheart Montana Retreat coming up.

My life couldn’t be more different. All because of Wildheart.

It’s not an 8 week program that will solve whatever problem you have. But it is a place that if you let it, will change your life forever in a really deep way.

I’ve seen people build businesses. Fall in love. Travel the world. Decide to have a second baby. Change lifelong patterns. Switch careers.

But mostly I’ve seen hearts on fire. Souls ablaze. Honesty and truth and vulnerability in a way I haven’t seen anywhere else.

And THIS, more than the numbers, more than anything, is what I’m most proud of.

One year ago, it was me in my bed, alone, afraid, scared.

Today I’m so excited for what’s on the horizon for Wildheart. For what’s on the horizon for all the members.

Things are changing in a major way with Wildheart. There is so much going on behind the scenes that I can’t wait to tell you about.

But for now…Wildheart remains an intimate family. And I want to keep it that way.

So much can happen in one year if you let it. Your visions can become realities. That habit you’ve had forever can change. You can have that dream life you imagine for yourself. You CAN do it.

But you probably can’t do it all alone. And what better way to work on it then in a group of people just like you, with a team of coaches who are hell bent on helping you get where you want to go. And that’s where Wildheart comes in. All you have to do is show up.

I wasn’t planning on doing this today but I woke up and felt inspired to.

I want to offer you a discounted Wildheart membership. $100 off anniversary special. And if you sign up for a year membership I will throw in a free 30 minute 1:1 coaching session to kick off your amazing year of change ($150 value). OR…a super special signature series Wildheart bracelet. Your choice.

Anything is possible if you get clear on what you want and take consistent action in the direction of your dreams. Yes…it’ll be scary. Yes…you’ll feel like you can’t do it. Yes…you will come up against roadblock after roadblock. But that is all normal. Come hang out with us in Wildheart as we’re all this same journey. Working through it together.

If you’ve been wondering how on earth to get from where you are now, to where you want to be, this is your sign. If you’ve been a crumpled pile of tears on the floor for the past 6 months wondering how you’ll ever survive what just happened (like me), this is your chance.

If any of this resonates with you at all, come on over to the site and see what Wildheart is all about and grab your spot. Offer only good til Monday. Please let me know if you have ANY questions at all (I’m serious!).

Happy birthday to us all! Let’s make this year the best one ever.

Eating birthday cake as we speak,

P.s. Even if you don’t join Wildheart, why not give yourself a year goal? One thing I love to do is write my future self a letter, one year in the future, saying where I want to be in one year. You can do that by going to

P.p.s. I’m happy to say that I never cashed my parent’s check. And I have no problem paying rent now. :)

P.p.p.s. If you’re already a Wildheart member and you want to “re-up” with the yearly anniversary deal of the bracelet or session just let me know and we’ll get you sorted!
