This includes posts about work, purpose, combining our passions with our careers, pursuing dear to our heart projects and finding joy in the jobs we do have.

Why We Struggle and How To Win

Take a quick assessment of your life situation.

  • Have you been struggling with starting a business?
  • Have your relationships felt strained?
  • Have your finances suffered?

Difficult situations are teachable moments, where we have the potential to grow and experience great shifts.

To find the blessing in a difficult interaction, ask yourself what it’s mirroring.

When I was in jobs where I’d was being micromanaged, undermined and criticized on a regular basis, I was even put through an intensive 8-week ‘improvement plan’. My strengths were misunderstood and my managers had no idea how to inspire and empower.

When I decided to bring awareness to the lesson/blessing, I realized that this situation was a mirror back to me; I was being too hard on myself, expecting perfection, out of a lack of self-compassion, so I attracted insecure micromanagers.

From this place of awareness, I was able to shift my energy into self-worth and self-compassion. And in a matter of weeks, my supervisors’ and coworkers’ demeanor and behavior changed to reflect my new reality.

Look for the lesson; what is your craptastic situation mirroring to you?

How Energy Work Can Support a Breakthrough

When I was desperate to leave my 9-to-5 job, and fighting to overcome burnout, depression and hypothyroidism, I sought experts to help me.

I could see I was in over my head and needed a light to show me out of my rut.

I saw a therapist. I saw my doctor. I saw a naturopath. I went to yoga. I touched based with a life coach. I had a business mentor and I paid for business coaching.


I failed in business, several times, and I was still sick and overweight.


Talk therapy acts on the mind level, and medicine + body work (ie massage therapy) act on the physical level.

Business coaching often focuses on strategy only, which gives tunnel vision.

These experts didn’t look at the whole picture!

Nothing in there weighed in my heart, my soul, my complex personality…


My life coach, who also had a background in energy work, got me to explore my relationship to reiki and my indigenous heritage.


That’s when things started coming together, clicking, shifting. I got traction. I really began healing and seeing my life + business clearly.

I believe we all have the power to heal ourselves through our minds and lifestyle choices.

And energy workers approach a person as a whole powerful being, witnessing, guiding, probing, so that they can heal themselves through awareness, holistic living and energetic support. Reiki will work even if there’s no conversation between the practitioner and the client. But it’s even more powerful when the client becomes active in their own healing.

Mind, Body and Soul need to align to create significant, lasting change.

Energy work cultivates holism, which in turn promotes health, abundance and success.

Have you tried energy work in your life + business?

PS: Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing art, and the beauty of it is that it’s not limited by space or time. I’m happy to offer distance reiki, and if this resonates with you, you can book your session with me here:
