Take a look inside the Rebel Soul Connection

The Doors are about to open to the Rebel Soul Connection soon and I wanted to give you a look inside!

I am going over what you can expect to find, and how the community and myself can help you achieve your goals and dreams.

The courses and programs on the inside are designed to be your framework, the starting elements of creating the life you want and a business that feels like you’re attending the best damn rock concert every single day.

Here’s what I know to be true:

Following someone else's system without your own personal vision and mission, isn't relly going to… Click To Tweet

I know this because I’ve followed other people’s system for a really long time, only to find myself frustrated.

My vision and personal mission are to give you the tools, guides, and resources to get started and to support you with daily check-ins and monthly coaching calls to answer questions and help you through the challenging days.

Everyone’s journey is different, and we all want to get there and often want to do it alone. But the hidden truth is that a community raises your confidence, supports you during the days you want to give – and together we achieve great things.

It’s time to stop saying “one day” or “some day”.

It’s time to start saying “Today is the day, that I will…”

A Manifesto of Sorts

I’m part of a group of Rebel Souls who are not afraid to forge their own path.
We don’t believe in following the status quo and don’t fit into the mainstream. We have dreams and ideas and talents that can change the world.

Because we’re fighting against the systems, of fitting in and being bland we have to do things differently. It’s an inner calling to show others there is a different way. We don’t have safety nets and we don’t steer away from taking action.

Because life is not a cookie cutter process. We have to follow your soul’s calling and if we don’t we did a slow and painful death from the inside out.

If you ask the coaches and consultants or look at all the material of creating and abundance and glorious life, they’d tell you what we are doing is not how any of it works.

Yet, it’s happening right around you and you don’t even know it. It’s happening through hate community that we call the Rebel Soul Connection.

We are Rebel Souls and this is our journey.

Riding the Wave of Creativity

Anytime I get an idea, in most cases, I immediately follow it with action. There is something I learned about myself, and that is that when I let it sit for too long, the inspiration is gone and I lose interest fast.

There are plenty of unfinished projects in my studio I could show you because I hesitated or simply just stopped instead of following it through.

But I fully believe that ideas and dreams come to us because we are meant for them. Let me sound a bit cliché for a moment “it’s part of the destiny”.

So, the next time you notice an idea and you can’t wait to take action, start. Don’t hesitate!

This is the moment to seize the idea and just run with it because the moment you hesitate all the doubts and fears will make their appearance. And you will literally have killed the idea before you even took action.

But what if for just a moment you decided to take action and allow yourself to ride the wave of creativity?

Sometimes these are very fleeting moments and you owe it to yourself to show up for them.

Here’s the thing, it’s okay to not always feel inspired but when the moment comes, ride it out. Surfers don’t always have the perfect wave, but even they keep showing up to catch just the right wave.

And what if your idea is that one thing that could change your life forever? Isn’t that just the thing you may be chasing?

So, the next time that idea enters your mind, make a choice to not hesitate.

Decide that you will act, even if you don’t know how or what the result will look like.

No one can really predict the outcome and you won’t know it until you do it!

Create your Colorful Life – Coloring to put your mind at ease!

This is how my mind works:

Buy a domain and think you will use it for something very specific and then 8 months later realizing that it would be served better very differently.

Welcome to

“Create your Colorful Life”

 .

My entire collection of hand-drawn coloring pages and planners in one place and space in the interwebs.

Why?

So why not?

Here’s what I know from first-hand experience:

Coloring reduces stress and overwhelm and decreases anxiety and worry.

In 2008, when my kiddo was recovering from his transplant surgeries and fighting to stay alive, I used doodling and drawing to help me cope with the seriousness of our situation.

The coloring really helps you switch off your brain and calm your fears and allows you to connect to your inner source. It has tremendous power in not only boosting your creativity but in the process helps you solve a problem.

Kinda like when you sit and meditate and before you know it you are calmer and know your next step.

Coloring helps you disconnect and tune into you and increases your ability to focus. You will find yourself more relaxed while calming the fears in your brain.

All of my illustrations hand drawn and I am excited to be sharing them with you in this new way..

All coloring pages come in a pdf file and are printables in the size of 8.5″ x 10″.

You can color them with your favorite colored pencils or crayons. Or dig out those old points waiting to be used.

You can glue them into your art journal or hang them up as posters around your home.

What I learned taking the day off

Last week, I took the day off.

No social media, no content creation for blog posts or courses. Nothing.

And it was the most incredible fun day I have had in quite some time.

It was a day in the waves, playing in the sand and eating dinner at sunset.

But there are amazing lessons I learned:

Taking time off is vital for memories and recharging.

The memories I have made with my family can’t be replaced. My family is as much as part of the life I am experiencing and it doesn’t need to involve work all the time. Getting away together just for a day brought joy and fun for all of us.

Inspiration will hit when you are not trying so hard

One of the challenges is to come up with new content, new ideas and all the things we do in running our business – to achieve the life we want. While being disconnected from my email and Facebook, I had three new inspirations and ideas plus new content for the blog.

Taking time off is a great reminder of why we do what we do

We all start on our journey to create a life that feels good. But feeling good doesn’t always involve work. Being able to eat dinner at sunset, seeing my kiddo amazed at the pigeons (yes pigeons – we too thought it was odd) and feel grateful for being able to do these things and to have those experiences – it’s just good stuff.

Freedom is the ability to take detours

Quite often we avoid detours because that means it may take longer to get where we are trying to go. We decided to take a different way home and it added 2 extra hours to our drive. The ability to handle the challenge without getting too aggravated or too much negativity, that’s growth. And even in the moment, I was feeling myself getting frustrated, I reminded myself that my life is about freedom and that sometimes it means taking detours.
