Are You Living A Name-Brand Life? Or, A Generic-Brand Life?


LET’S TALK! I woke up this morning and I realized this past week I have been allowing my fears to take control of a lot of my actions these last few days. For example, I’m writing my journal workbook and I’m at the editing stage of it. I kept thinking, “what if it’s not good enough? What if people don’t feel like I have helped them? What if it doesn’t sell? What if I put in all of this energy into this workbook and it flops?”

Obviously, I have this vision of myself as being a published author and continuing to work as an online personal mentor coach. Establishing this vision has not been the problem. And while for the most part I am turning up my dial and leveling up in increments in my life and my business, I lost my self-antennae and allowed my fears to start creeping back up. And guess what!? Newsflash! I’m human. It’s okay, and everything is going to be okay! I wrote my journal workbook and did my 4 online programs out of FAITH-based mentality, and they worked out well for me. So right before launch-date of my workbook, I’m allowing my fears to creep back in.

Here is the truth of the matter: there ARE billions of people in this world, my journal workbook is going to be available online via a few different platforms. There are people out there that this workbook IS going to speak to them and help them! So fears, poof!, be gone!

Take your fears and play the devil’s advocate! Flip it around and make the case as to WHY it IS working out for you and your life!

Are you taking inspirational actions? Or, are you taking fear-based actions?

When you go about your daily living, are you committing to the name-brand or the generic-brand in life?

Are you remaining in your current level because you are too scared to level up? Are you living your life through fear-based actions, or faith-based actions?

You are your own engine, you get to choose how much you accelerate. You are the volume dial, you get to choose how much you turn up the sweet sounds of your favorite music that IS your life! Check into your mindset several times per day, don’t allow the noise of others distract you from your life goal. And if they do, it’s okay, we are human. Pick yourself back up and take control of the dial again. Put more gas into your tank and rev up your engine as much as you want. You can’t go from point A to point B by not pushing on the accelerator. You can’t listen to your favorite music if you don’t turn up the volume.

When you get in your car with the intention of going to your desired location, you don’t sit in the car and do nothing. You put your foot on the accelerator and you go in FAITH that you are getting to your desired destination. So why aren’t you doing this in LIFE? And when we are in our cars, we don’t just let it be silent. We turn up the volume dial and get into alignment and flow ON THE WAY to our desired destination! YES! This is what I’m talking about! Like attracts like, GO with the intention and the FAITH that you are getting to your desired destination! If you allow your fears to control your actions, you ARE going to get what your main focal point has been because it’s the law of attraction. The vibrations you are putting out there is what is signaling to the universe.

If you want to level up, you CAN do it. Whether you slam your foot onto the accelerator and crank up your volume dial; or, slowly push the accelerator and gradually turn up the volume on the dial…doesn’t matter. Do what FEELS in flow and alignment with you. Feel those inspirational nudges, and DO take action when you are currently in those feelings! In order to get yourself into flow and alignment, do your mindset work DAILY. Journal every single day around positive mindset and positive living. Write out your life goals, big and small, listen to your favorite music, watch an inspirational video or listen to a motivational speaker, drink your favorite coffee (name-brand) because you DESERVE to feel good and in flow. You ARE allowed to feel in alignment and feel inspired. You ARE worthy of this! And then take those inspirational actions in FAITH-based mentality and level up, bit by bit.

I was scared to write my journal workbook, I always wanted to publish something; but, I allowed my fears to keep me from doing it. And now I’m doing it, I’m realizing the outcome is seriously happening and I’m super excited! Yeah, I can CHOOSE to focus on my fears, but it doesn’t feel good AT ALL to do so. I’m choosing to continue to take actions around this with FAITH-based intentions. The universe is ALWAYS working for us however we tune it. Negative thoughts lead to negative feelings that create negative vibrations. It’s okay! Pick yourself back up and turn your dial the other direction so you can FEEL and LIVE to the sweet sounds of your favorite music that is your life! And accelerate towards your life goals! You’ve got this!

PS- my book’s scheduled launch-date is now Christmas Day! I’m currently putting together the final chapter, working with the artist for the images, and my editor is kicking my ASS (as she should!) to bring it to the professional level for readers! I’m so excited to help you dive into your subconscious and motivate YOU to live your life in the way that you deserve!!!!

Carpe Diem!

Allow It To Pass, Don’t Dwell, Keep Going!


I cried. I cried myself to sleep the other night. I’m human, it’s normal. In fact, it’s necessary to cry sometimes. The universe is rearranging things on our path to help us achieve and have our goals in life. A hard day does not mean it’s not happening for you at all. Sometimes things that we think aren’t happening for us actually ARE because the universe is working itself to help you out by clearing things out of the way. The universe is always working for us, for our highest good. If we want something, sometimes we feel the universe isn’t bringing it to use; but, it’s actually bringing it to us in a much BETTER form. I’ve experienced this several times in my life. It doesn’t mean I don’t have down moments or I don’t cry because of it. I am human, crying is a form of cleansing.

The universe is ALWAYS working for us- acknowledge the feeling, then RELEASE it. Cleanse yourself, feel it, get it out, and then get back up and KEEP GOING. Take time for yourself, love yourself, be gentle and kind to yourself, and make sure you are being your mind’s own leader and cheerleader. Like a stock market graph, it goes up and down and then goes up again. Keep your mindset in check, OVERALL. Our human brain and emotions are signals from our soul asking us if we still want it, and if we do, we KEEP GOING.

And we keep thinking about the goal in that we already ARE and HAVE, and we keep FEELING into the goal as if it’s ALREADY done. And we keep doing this and then relax, have fun, and KNOW that it’s DONE! We keep living and focusing on positive thoughts, positive emotions, we keep ourselves in alignment and flow- and we forget about the “prize” at the end for most of the day because subconsciously focusing on the “prize” all of the time is telling the universe we have a lack of it.

So we just KNOW, we BELIEVE, we FEEL it’s DONE and already in existence. And we relax, we have fun, we just enjoy anything and everything in life each day because we ARE moving closer to our life goals. This is how I manifest things, people, and events into my life. There is no secret, I journal DAILY and train my mindset into second-nature thinking and feeling. I just focus on the positive and feeling GOOD. I don’t allow the negativity, the fears, and anything else that brings me down be the main engine in my mindset and my feelings. I acknowledge, and then I let it pass, I release it, and I KEEP GOING.

You’ve got this!

Are YOU Stuck In A Rut!?


Hi Sensational Souls!

Happy Friday! Do you like the oil painting above? I’m currently working with the artist to feature high quality prints for my journal workbook that is coming out soon! Ivailo Nikolov is really talented!

I was in a meeting all day today…man, am I SORE from sitting all day! While I was in the meeting I was thinking about what people can do to get themselves UNSTUCK within their mindsets. Life can be boring sometimes, let’s admit it. So, why not spark your brain and keep its creative juices flowing by drawing out your life goals with fun colors and even colored paper!? Seriously, I’ve done this a couple of times. It’s not only fun, but it’s a GREAT visual for your life goals! For example, if you want more money, don’t just draw a bunch of dollar bills. Draw what you would DO with the money! Trips, charities, projects, a new home, a car, what would you DO having the money? Remember, money is only energy- it’s paper! The universe will serve you what you deem about it, too! So even if you write out in big letters, “money is EASY to receive” on your paper, you are writing it with conviction and sending these messages to the universe. But, you gotta BELIEVE what you are writing!

Take yourself back to a time when you were younger and have FUN with this! Display it somewhere you will see it often throughout your day. It’s a min-vision board! I put up the weekend challenge in the Manifest It! Facebook group last night! Let me know how it goes, keep doing your mindset work every single day. You’ve got this!

Have a great weekend!

Carpe Diem!

How Do You Believe? I’ll Tell You!


Hi Sensational Souls!

Today is our first Q & A session on our Manifest It! Facebook community! Here is a sneak peak of our weekly community interactions:

Q & A November 8, 2017

Question: How do you get into a place of believing?

Journal Girl Jaclyn:
GREAT question!

1) The root of being able to get into a place of believing is to make sure you take CARE of yourself- always! Make the time once or twice per week to have a ME time/day. What are your hobbies? Make sure you nourish your relationship with your mind and your body! Never, EVER compromise your self-worth, respect, and desires for anyone else or anything else in life! We are not promised tomorrow, I always say this; but, it’s TRUE! So make sure you take good care of yourself and your mindset- DAILY!

2) We all have insecurities, but when I feel one creeping to the surface, I journal out what it is and I use various methods to kick them to the curb! For example, how were you raised around the subject you feel insecure about? Why do you feel you need to carry these beliefs with you in the present as an adult? Journal around this through writing or typing and explore the root of your insecurities. You can also state the opposite of it! Do you believe it’s hard to get a promotion at work? So state something like, “I believe…I choose to believe…I know…I trust that the universe is ALWAYS working for me and I AM on my way to a promotion within my career!” Remember, you can receive a promotion through another job opportunity that comes your way as well, so be open to the universe bestowing blessings to you in many forms!

3) Do your mindset work DAILY! Just like when you were a kid and you learned how to tie your shoes, you practiced, practiced, practiced! So make sure you do your mindset DAILY!!!! How can you change your belief systems and your mindset if you don’t work on it on a habitual basis?

4) Whenever you recognize a negative thought, STOP IT right then and there! You are your mind’s LEADER. As your mind’s leader/boss, etc. YOU get to CHOOSE how your mind thinks. Again, it takes practice; but, it’s completely DOABLE! As humans we LOVE freedom. We don’t like it when people demand from us in any way, so take your craving to be free and CHOOSE to be your mind’s leader. Instruct your mind how you want it to think, and practice the positive, empowering thoughts. Watch motivational speakers online to find one who inspires you and your soul’s calling. I’m a huge believer in living by example. If you want to be your CEO of your Etsy line, start leading your mindset into that direction- practice, practice, practice! The belief of BEING your own CEO of your Etsy line IS shifting into that direction when you make it a daily habit to do your mindset work all around it with empowering, positive, and explorative journaling.

You CAN do it! I believe in YOU! Now it’s time to start believing in YOU, too! You’ve got this!

Don’t miss a SINGLE Q & A session by joining our Manifest It! Facebook community! My empowering and motivational journal workbook is in the process of being edited RIGHT NOW and will be out very soon! I’m so excited to help you on your abundant universal journey!

Carpe Diem!

Patience IS a Virtue!


Hi Sensational Souls!

Today’s focal point for me is: patience is a virtue. If life gave us everything we wanted straight away we wouldn’t have much to “live for” because everything would just be instantly handed to us. We wouldn’t understand the concepts of value and respect.

Today was a bit of a trying day for me, mainly with regards to other people’s lack of patience. But, also because of my own patience with regards to technology.

If chocolate is your favorite ice cream flavor and you don’t normally have access to it, don’t you value it more when you DO have it? When you eat your favorite ice cream your mind tends to express the first few bites as something like, “this is so. freaking. good.” After about 5 minutes and you are working your way towards an empty cup or crunching your way towards the bottom of the cone, you aren’t so much thinking “this is so. freaking. good” anymore. Your appreciation of it goes down a little because you have it already and you have had it for a little bit at this point.

So the next time you feel hopeless about something, think about how much you appreciate it, value it, and respect it. Doesn’t matter what it is, or even WHO it is. Develop that loving and respectful relationship to it- not a NEEDY relationship to it- and feeling those positive feelings around it can help you to speed up the manifestation process!

Carpe Diem!
