Your Soul did not make it here by accident. Consider it a sweet reunion, of sorts. I'm glad we have a chance to get to know each other more, as you explore below... (don't miss the goodies all the way down!)
Wanna cut to the chase? My official career path gets its own page. More on that here.
You made the grades, got the degrees, and have accomplishments galore.
Ambition is your middle-name.
You're here to make the world a better place, and people love you for it.
You're an entrepreneur, a change-maker, an innovator...
You've lead teams, companies and maybe even sat on boards. You started your own practice. You initiated movements...
Not to mention working on family life, getting the house, and even training for the marathon.
So, what happens when you’ve done everything "right", but still aren't sure you’re building the life you really want to live…
How do you break through to the next level, when the ‘rules for success’ are no longer getting you there?
How do you manifest your awesomest mission when you’ve been running yourself ragged and raw?
How do you lay down the load of figuring everything out by yourself, so you can allow resources to come to you (without having to stress about it)?
Well, let me tell you something, Dahhhling:
All that stress, struggle and efforting will mess with your mojo.
No wonder the Universe is sending you messed-up mojo back!
It’s the quality of energy you bring to whatever you do that manifests every outcome in your world. When you consciously align with the energy of your Soul, life gets to be fun, easy, lucrative and fulfilling beyond your wildest dreams!
MY work is to guide you to your truest Self, so you can listen to your Soul, reach your next level of best and make a BIGASS IMPACT on this planet.
You’re going to be struck, on a daily basis, with heart-squeezing gratitude for your amazing life.
You’re going to tackle the BIG jobs in your business with confidence and clarity.
You’re going to feel supercharged to do incredible work.
You’re going to find that the energy that flows from you, through you and to you, brings exactly what you need your way.
And you’re gonna change the FREAKING WORLD, Baby!
As only YOU can.
This - this is what my Soul came here to do: To lead people into Alignment with their Souls so they can fulfill their greatest missions, at their highest potentials.
Of course, I wasn’t always so consciously aligned with my Soul’s goals.
I spent so much of my life adapting myself to fit what I thought the world wanted (and I was born into a world of drama - so that standard was a moving target!)
As a kid, I remember a well-meaning elder telling me, “just be yourself!” And I had no fucking clue what that meant.
Years later, I found myself married to a "successful" guy, living in a gorgeous apartment, plugging away at my career - I realized that I’d checked all the boxes and done all the "right things".
But not always based on what was in alignment with my Soul's deepest desires.
I was in my second year of being a full-time step-mom to a teenage daughter, while being the primary caregiver for my grandmother in her end-of-life; I had spinal issues that made walking even one block difficult; and in every spare scrap of time, I was writing my first book.
Looking back, I can see clearly that I was overextending, and that made me greedy and protective of my energy in ways that made me not feel like myself. I’m a giving person by nature; this wasn’t me.
I was pushing so hard!
I remember this so clearly: It was a January afternoon in Minnesota, every house, tree and yard was pure white with snow, and I was driving to another fucking networking meeting. I’d been to so many, trying to build my business, looking for a breakthrough.
Creeping through sub-zero temps in my Cadillac SUV, my earrings got stuck in my hair. As I reached up to untangle them, it brought me back to my 30th birthday, seven years before, when I was gifted these earrings.
Seven years ago, I was 30. In another 7 or 8 years, where will I be? Oh God, I don’t want to live another 8 years... that just sounds so.damn.long.
I didn’t want to see 45. Seriously.
That got my attention. I instantly decided I had to do something different.
For several months, there had been this soft, quiet voice in the back of my mind whispering “go to the desert.”
WTF? I don’t even like the desert.
But, as soon as I got the chance, I packed up my fancy SUV with grandma’s quilts, my bikini and yoga pants, a basket of shoes, a duffel bag stuffed with wine & chocolate... and I hit the road, Jack.
I drove straight down to San Antonio to stay with a college friend for a week. Next stop: Big Bend National Park. I found myself out in the middle of nowhere on the Mexican border, where I spent a week sleeping on an inflatable pad in my Caddy at an RV park and doing a whole bunch of hiking.
Then I drove to Arizona, and hung out in an abbey with the nuns just outside of Tucson. (Three days of silence, Anyone?)
By the time I got home, I told myself: I’m going to do everything my heart desires.
When a girlfriend invited me on a service trip to Haiti, I agreed. That inspired my joining a French conversation group to brush up on my skills. I met new friends. I used my languages. Then I started dancing again. I felt an aliveness come back to me.
And it wasn’t a match to my marriage anymore.
All this time, I hadn’t been making money with my business, not really. My husband made a 6-figure income - it was easy to lean on him for everything. So when I decided to get my own apartment, I had no idea what I could afford.
I found a dingy one-bedroom with flickering lights in the hallways (which smelled like stale cigarettes and old chicken soup). I signed the lease.
But I was terrified to actually move in.
I gave myself a pep talk, hired movers to take the few pieces of furniture that were mine before the marriage, and borrowed a bed from my cousin. I went to my new apartment that night…
...and cried myself to sleep.
I woke up at 4am, walked into the living room, and my knees hit the floor. I was shaking with terror. It felt like the hands of death were reaching into my organs and pulling them out.
And I thought: Maybe I can still save the marriage!
A few hours later, I was back in bed with my husband. And I never left again.
But I couldn't let the other apartment go.... for a good EIGHT months. And every month, I wrote a useless rent check. Cha-ching... Cha-Ching...
I felt like I couldn’t move. But nothing got better. Finally, months later something broke.
I was standing in the living room of that shitty apartment, asking myself if I was going to write another fucking rent check for a place I didn’t live.
Somewhere deep in my unconscious system, the belief had been planted: I couldn't create the life I wanted for myself without a man providing for me. This is the paradigm I was living in.
And then, all of a sudden, it hit me - the ‘lightbulb moment’... DING!
JENNIFER...Just GO MAKE MORE MONEY!
(Right? So simple.)
But it was simple. Because my Soul told me, in that moment, that I had more earning potential then than I’d ever had in my life. “WHY would you THINK this is something you couldn’t have?!”
I moved all my stuff back home, drew up divorce papers and kindly requested my husband to move out.
And I just decided that I was going to make more money.
I’m a smart, educated, confident woman. Why in the world would I have thought anything other than that? But I was caught in this vicious paradigm.
That whole winter, during the torment of ambivalence, I woke up every night like clockwork at 3am and sat my ass down to meditate the SHIT out of that paradigm.
See, you have to groom your system, energetically, to move beyond your comfort zone.
I studied Bob Proctor’s program, Born Rich, to learn the money mindset - but that wasn’t the main thing I learned. The most important lesson I got was how to create energetic shifts to move past those invisible blocks.
You can want something like Hell, but still feel totally frozen, stuck and incapable of doing what you say you really want.
By the time I asked my husband to move out, I’d elevated my energy enough to align with a Higher level of my Soul.
And my Soul was calling me to my quantum leap. (Really, we need helmets for this shit...)
Somehow, I found myself on the phone with Bob Proctor’s team, and they told me about the different workshops, programs and products he offered, including the alluring One Percent Club: A small intimate group retreat in Hawaii where members get a lot of personal attention for them and their businesses.
Everything in me was like HELL YES!
“That’s the one I want!” I said.
“Great! That’ll be $60,000.”
Without flinching: “When do you need to have it by?”
"Before you come to Hawaii in November."
It was April. I could do this.
“With $15,000 today we can get you registered.”
“Will you take $5,000?”
Up until then, I’d never made more than $60,000 in a year - ever. And now I was in the most financially and emotionally vulnerable point in my life... and I decided to DOUBLE the eff DOWN.
If I really believed what I would tell any other woman (or man) about being able to manifest the life she wanted, then I’d better fucking be able to do it myself.
So I hunkered down and manifested the shit outta that thing.
Over the next six months, I sent all my money to Bob Proctor (who didn't need my money). Five grand here, five grand there. Even when I didn’t know where it was going to come from.
At the same time, I provided myself with that 6-figure lifestyle my husband had previously supplied. Needless to say, it was Manifestation Central... game ON!
Up until the very last minute.
The night before I was supposed to get on the plane to Hawaii, I didn’t have the last $5,000.
And then, as I was staring out the window at the beautiful city below… it came in.
The money came in.
My knees hit the floor, and this time, I was bawling in gratitude, saying “thank you, thank you, I don’t need to be afraid anymore.”
That was the moment, I discovered what a quantum leap is.
I knew how to be partnered with my Soul to manifest the life it truly desires and has intended for me.
The people I met at the One Percent Club? Totally changed the course of my life.
That year I made 2.5X what I’d made the year before. That’s a quantum leap (and that’s only a mini quantum leap!).
The manifestation process is the outcome of Alignment.
And, when you learn the manifestation process once, you can recreate it again and again, for everything in your life.
Today, I can tell you that the greatest gift of Alignment is being able to relax and trust.
I am always cared for, provided for, and protected. I don’t need to worry. Because I know my Soul has got me. AND I know how to partner with it consciously.
To be in the space of “Where I am today is perfect. I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be... and when I need to be someplace different, the way will be made", is, in my opinion, the only way to live.
And as it turns out, I don't live in Minnesota anymore. I bounce between Palm Beach and New York City... cause human life is the ultimate Choose-Your-Own-Adventure. And that's just how me and my Soul are rockin' it... for now.
Check out my real-life nomadic journey to see what a life lead in Alignment looks like. It's navigating the unknown, contending with uncertainty... It's also embracing synchronicities, redirects, and amazing Soul connections.
