The Rebel Soul Handbook Pre-Sale

The Rebel Soul Handbook Pre-Sale

It’s here!

The Rebel Soul Handbook!

I am so excited it’s here. New pages all ready for you to color and intuitively map out your life.

Why I created the Handbook

Because I wanted something that felt personal and true to me as I wanted to achieve goals that felt in alignment with who I am.

I needed something that allowed me to call in all that I wanted to be, do and have, and I wasn’t finding it in any other workbook or planner that I had purchased.

How it has changed my life

The handbook’s focus is to create a life according to your vision. I recently sat down to do a review for this year’s handbook, and my jaw dropped as I realized that several things have come to be a reality in my life.

This meant, I found what worked for me and I am so excited to share my handbook with you in hopes that it will do the same for you.

The story behind the dream doodle

2008 was a rough year for my family but more challenging for my youngest kiddo.

It’s no cake walk receiving 2 liver transplants 3 days apart. You go into surgery one day, wake up just to go into the second surgery a few days later and then be in a medically induced coma for the coming weeks.

In order to keep my head and thoughts above water, I needed another outlet other than studying for my degree because there’s only so much homework you can do in one day.

As an artist, I am always expanding my arsenal of creative outlets and decided that doodling would be perfect while we lived in the intensive care unit. It’s not like I could bring in my wood-burner, though that would have been great. But realistically it wasn’t an option and although I had my crochet work, it just wasn’t enough.

And off to the craft store, we went to pick up pen and paper and the doodling began.

I needed to affirm the words, believe, faith, hope, dream and created different versions of each doodle.

Jump ahead a few years later and I am able to take my art and have them on different products. 

Drink your coffee in the Dream Doodle Mug and envision all of the possibilities you can create in your life.

Dreaming expands your imagination and creates room for opportunities, provided you don’t censor your thoughts and talk yourself out of it.

Dreaming can provide new ideas on how to solve problems and lead you into action.

So why don’t you get your mindset support in the form of a mug and every time you take a sip you are reminded to dream?

Give yourself permission to dream! You are only one step away!

How to stop waiting and start taking action

Have you ever considered what getting clear on your dreams does for you?

Or what one simple action will do for your life?

You have the vision that is so far out of reach and you wonder every single day when will your dream turn into reality.

You plan, plan and then plan some more waiting for perfection and just the right time. You keep analyzing ever single detail about your dream. You keep talking yourself out of it and your doubts and fears tell you that it just cannot happen.

I’m going to tell you something and you may not like it, but the right time will never come into reality.

And now I am going to tell you that you CAN turn your dreams into reality, with one single thing.

Taking Action!

Let go of fear and self-doubt Click To Tweet

Believe in you and in your dream.

But how can I take action when I don’t know what to do?

 

You already have a plan right? So, now create some action steps to go with the plan.

Brainstorm a list of things you will need to do.

 

Let’s say you want to start a business because you want the freedom.

What will you need to get started?

Create a checklist of what you will need to do.

Do those things!

 

Or maybe you want to make more art?

What art do you want to do? Decide it!

Purchase your supplies.

Make art.

 

Oh but I don’t have the time.

Hogwash!

 

We all have the time when we make it a priority. Click To Tweet

You look at all the things you are doing now and decide what it is that no longer fits in your priority list, let that go and then voila, you now have time to do that thing you want to do.

Just maybe you are saying, but I want to be healthier.

 

Define what being healthier means to you.

Is it eating less junk food or cooking more meals from scratch or both. Is it exercising and moving your body more often?

Be clear on what that means for you and then write it down.

Now write all the things you can do to help you feel and be healthier.

You have just created a list of all the things you can do to take action.

 

When we start to overanalyzing and make excuses i.e. it’s not perfect enough or I don’t have time you are being a disservice to your own life and your own dream.

 

How can I help you to start acting today? Share in the comments!

What’s it going to take before you will take action

You have this amazing dream of writing a book, starting a business and perhaps even lose some weight. My guess you are thinking about your new year’s resolution and making some plans for 2016.

That’s great, but what are you waiting for?

Why does January 1st have to be the day you start taking action and begin your journey?

Why can’t it be right this very moment?

What is holding you back?

Is it fear of failing? Fear of disappointing yourself or others?

Worry?

The lack of not knowing how?

Every excuse you make is a bullshit reason for why you are not willing to make your dream, goal or resolution happen.

When is enough, well enough?

How much longer are you willing to just watch others make their own dreams come true while you are still wishing you could?

Here is the truth: You can!

You need to stop making excuses and start taking action – even when the fear is as loud as a damn jet engine.

Fear is just an emotion, just like anger, love, happiness etc. Are you willing to allow the emotion to rule you, or are you willing to decide how you are going to feel and what you are going to do?

I think too often, we forget that we have a choice.

We always have a choice!

When we were kids, we were told we don’t have a choice. We need to follow the rules, do as we are told. We are told to graduate highschool, go to college or learn a trade.

We are told that we should be grateful for the job we have and just go on with our mediocre life.

Yes, I said it: MEDIOCRE

Because I know you envision your life to be different. I know that you have dreams and goals that you want to achieve but because you were told you didn’t have a choice, you just let life slip on by.

What if I told you that you are in control of your life, that you have the power to choose what you will or will not do and how you will live?

Choose and Decide!

What’s it going to be? Living your life to the rules of someone else or your own?

I turn coffee into dreams

There’s no denying that I love my coffee. Truth be told, I’ve been drinking coffee since I was a teenager and, yes I am slightly addicted (and please spare me all the health reasons of why I should stop drinking coffee).

You see, I come from a family of coffee drinkers and at one point in my life, I was drinking coffee all day long, an average of 2 pots a day.

I like love coffee. And there were times where I had to make changes because in my last pregnancy the coffee was gross, but due to my slight coffee addiction, the headaches were insane. And so I added creamer and a few pounds.

I’ve since gone back to black coffee and drink about 3-5 cups depending when I wake up. I switched to water for the rest of the day.

I applaud the person who decided that this one little bean and engaging it with water came up with this nectar.

I sometimes, wake up to coffee in bed with a few moments of closeness with my partner.

And at other times, I sit on my deck with my cup of coffee and my journal, enjoying the sounds of nature that surrounds our home.

This is a perfect start to my day.

Coffee and I have the perfect relationship because coffee understands, and it also doesn’t talk back.

I sit and ponder about the day, conjuring ideas and my next steps. And it’s beautiful.

I know coffee get’s a bad rap at times and other’s simply don’t like it. I don’t like matcha green tea. It’s all good!

We all over our likes and dislikes and we all choose what we allow to be part of our dreams.

I choose coffee.

There was a time where my love for coffee was frowned upon. And instead, I chose to embrace it.

There’s nothing wrong with turning your coffee, or tea or other favorite things into your dreams.

But coffee and me, we get along.

I created this t-shirt to show my love for coffee and that it is really a part of my life.

should

Remove the “shoulds” from your life

A quick search on my blog posts, I can see a handful of times I have told you to “should” something.

And it’s really a word that can feel incredibly heavy.

Seriously, it’s hard to know what you want when you are “shoulding” all over yourself.

Do you remember your parents telling “you should do x, y and z so you can _______”?

Or maybe “you should A, because _______”.

Or maybe even teachers, coaches and peers have given you a bunch of shoulds.

And let me tell you, it’s all a freaking set up.

It set’s you up for a life that isn’t yours to live. In fact, it creates a life on someone else’s terms. It seriously interferes with the heart of the matter:

Doing what you want by doing what you love!

For example, parents have told you that you should have good grades, so you can go to college, earning a degree chosen by your parents.

Or maybe your gym coach told you, that you should practice 5 days out of the week if you wanted to become a competitor. Now don’t get me wrong, becoming the best at something takes dedication and hard work and yes even practicing 5 days a week.

But if it’s a should and not something you want to do, it feels heavy.

A friend of mine is a writer and she believed that she “should’ be a coach. She believed that is what she had to do to reach her destination: To be a writer.

Should, just like doubt, kills dreams!

This is the kind of stuff that happens when you listen to other people and not your intuition.

Because of other people “shoulding” all over you, you will talk yourself out of it.

And it feels heavy because it doesn’t excite you or inspire you to show up.

The moment you let go of all the shoulds you will experience a sense of relief, a sense of freedom if you will. You will feel lighter because you are now willing to follow your intuition and your heart!
