What Do We Know About The Subconscious Mind?

3 things you should probably know about the subconscious.

1. Your subconscious drives 95% of your thoughts, beliefs, & actions. Swipe to see. The subconscious is always creating based on paradigms you have given it. You want a different reality. Change the paradigm.

2. The subconscious doesnt know the difference b/w what you want and what you don't want. It is creating reality purely from the frequency of your DOMINANT thoughts. And those dominant thoughts create emotion (energy in motion). So if you're always thinking about what you don't want, replaying fear based stories and scenarios in your head and feeling it as if it were real, what do you think you will experience in real life? A reflection of that.

Ex. You want to launch a new program, but the dominant thought you have is no one will sign up. Then your #subconscious tells the brain to create that neuropathway. When the brain does that, you start doing things that lead you to support your own belief. Maybe you self sabbotage. Maybe you procrastinate. Maybe you randomly just get sick. Or maybe you overcome that and you do launch but you start seeing evidence and no one actually signs up. Congrats! You created a reality that supported your beliefs.

And this is much of the work i do with my clients. Helping them uncover the subconscious beliefs that dont actually serve them cuz they are causing blocks in business. Happens to all of us.

3. The emotion is the catalyst. If you can focus on feeling what you think the thing you want will cause you to feel - thats the vibe! And your reality has no choice but to support that. Thats just how this works. Quick exercise: write down 3 things you are working towards that you want to experience.

Underneath, write down how you would feel when you experience that thing. #Focus on the feeling! Linger there as long as you can. See it in your mind. Feel it in your heart.

You my friend have just time traveled. You got to it without ever needed to actually get to it. And this is your #God given co-creative #power of the mind at work. The more you do this the faster those neuropathways get built, the faster you get to experience it in real life.

Good work!

Life Is About Leaving The Comfort Zone…

Don’t settle into comfort zones you don’t want to be in. There is always more! And reaching for that is part of the human experience.

No guilt required.

As life is happening to you, for you, through you, its bound to create desires that are beyond your present experience. This is normal!

You can be grateful for what you have and still experience desire.

It happens everyday. You dont want to eat manna everyday, do you? Maybe you want 🍕 then 🌮.

That kind of desire is easy to accept. But the big scary stuff? The unfamiliar? Those can cause you to cling to comfort zones you dont even want!

You see how this can be a problem?

But there is a higher version of you waiting for you to show up for you. A higher version connected to the divine. A higher version that isn’t doubting.

Ask yourself what that version of you would do and lean into that!

Training the mind and body to operate from a vision of the future and to overcome present circumstance and appearance is not easy. But if you’re curious here’s how I do it:

1. Get clear. If you can’t get clear on what you really really want, the rest of this will be moot. Often it’s the lack of clarity that keeps me stuck.

2. Lots of meditation. Teach your body to linger in the the future as if it were happening right now. And then...

3. The feeling creates the frequency. When I can really feel it, as in feel the emotions associated with the desired outcome, I know I’m in co-creation mode. Things tend to happen fast after that.

4. High level Support is non-negotiable. I have had and have spoken to the same coach every week for over 5 years. I am a great coach - I love helping my clients get results! But I can’t fix what I can’t see. He helps me uncover those things within myself. Keeps me out of my head and grounded in Truth.

If you’ve taken my MVMC series, I talk specifically about the The Theology of Desire.


Reminder: your desires are not random - no matter how big or small they may be. The work isn’t trying to strip yourself of them in some masochistic way of being ‘holy’.

The work is to figure out why you have them, who gave them to you, and what you’re supposed to do with them. They arent accident. 😊

Did You Experience Creator’s Block?

I had "creator's block" - ever experienced this?


If you follow my IG stories (and you should... I'm way more active there than my feed at times), I talked about having photo block last week.

For weeks, I kept trying to take pictures and I liked none of them!

I kept trying to write captions, and none of them made sense.

Creator's Block!

You know what I did?

1. Gave myself permission to not post and didn't feel a lick of guilt about it. Social media is a tool I use - but its not the only tool. And it doesn't ruley life. So, while I was not posting, I was focusing on servicing elsewhere.

2. I kept taking pictures and I kept writing. The amount of pictures I have taken in the last 2 weeks that will never see the light of day is just ridiculous 😂 I posted some of the bts in my stories. But when you find yourself uninspired or unmotivated the last thing you should so is give up. An object in motion stays in motion. The only way you fail is if you quit. So, even though nothing was making sense, I still kept myself in the habit of creation because eventually, something was gonna work. Which leads me to 3.

3. I trusted that it would pass. I didn't wallow in 'woe is me' 'whats wrong with me' 'why is this not working' energy. That's never am empowering place to begin the conversation. Instead, i just kept living my life, knowing that at some point my Creator's Block would go away.

And it did! Im feeling more inspired and more creative (at least this week 😂).

If you're fortunate enough to use social media to show up, lend your voice, serve people, inspire, motivate, etc... Then do that because THAT is exactly whats available to you. Facebook, Instagram, tiktok, YouTube, etc... These are not weapons formed against you!

We use them because they allow us to build platforms and impact people. Sometimes we need a minute because we are exhausted or unmotivated or we just dont feel like it. I get that. When that happens, learn to rest. But don't quit. Someone is probably on their knees praying for you to show up, say what youre supposed to say, do what youre supposed to do.

Happy Creating! 🤗

Don’t Be Surprised If…

Something I tell my clients all the time...


Dont be surprised by your success. Be humble. Be grateful. But please please please dont be surprised. Here's what I mean...

Sometimes we say things like "omg i cant believe this happened to me!" or "i dont know how I got here" - really?! 'Cause I could have sworn 3 months ago this is exactly what you wanted and we had a whole conversation on what you were going to do so that it actually comes to pass... 🤔😂

No judgement lol - I have been there too. Definitely said those things. Thankfully I have a coach who caught it quickly and made me reframe.

Because saying you dont know how something so great manifested is disempowering.

It's actually one of the worst things you can do when you achieve a level of success and then tell yourself you don't know how it happened!

Success is not happenstance. Success is not random. Success is planned for, prayed for, etc.

Saying you don't know how it happened discounts everything you did leading up to it.

     You discount your prayers.
     You discount your intentions.
     You discount your work.

You wanted this. You asked for this. You showed up this! You put in time and effort for this! So how you gon' act like it just happened all will nilly?

So... Heres a quick lesson on the universal law of cause and effect.

YOU always operate at the level of cause, what you experience is the effect. In other words, you reap what you sow. In other other words, every action has an equal opposite reaction.

Every thought, every intention, every action that comes from you will ripple into something. You get to choose what that something is based on the said thoughts, actions, and intentions.

When you set your sights on achieving something great, and then you show up for it in the way you should... Lets not pretend we didn't play an active role in that process!

And here's why this is important - when you can get behind the belief that you are in fact co-creating your life, and you see it in real time, and you acknowledge it in real time then you learn to recognize just how powerful of a being you truly are. God did not make you by accident. He didnt give you the desire just 'cause. Trust it. ❤️

The Power of Play

My secret superpower (and its probably one of yours too, so listen up!)

Play. Play is very powerful for me. And probably is for you too! Just gotta lean in.

According to Scientific American, fun and laughter release endorphins, happy hormones which counteract cortisol.

Basically, fun counteracts stress, one of the biggest inhibitors of cognitive performance.

For adults it helps you relax, be more creative, solve problems easier and more effectively, etc.

And for me personally, I find myself more in the flow when I am just having fun!

Things are easier.
I trust God more.
I trust myself more.
I manifest faster.
I help more people.
I make more money.
Opportunities pop up "out of nowhere"
I can rest in all the success.
And it all just feels good.

Yes! Its great to have a concrete strategy and to learn how to follow through and execute. Please, for the love of all things #entrepreneurial - execute!

Its commendable to be disciplined with your time and hustle when necessary. Because showing up is requires.

But honestly, if being in your business isnt fun, why are you even doing it?

Play is magnetic.
Play feels like alignment.
Play is indicative of flow.

Don't wind yourself up so tight from all of the ins and outs of your to-to list.

Step away from the laptop when technology isn't going your way. Take a nap if you can't slow your mind down enough to stop spiraling in doubt and negative self talk. Go for a walk, get some sun, play with puppies... Do whatever you need to do to find a point of access!

Live life to the full... Including the fullness of fun 🤸🏾‍♀️🤸🏾‍♀️🤸🏾‍♀️

Have some of that today, will ya?

#Affirmation: The more fun I have, the more successful I am.
