“Inspiring people to know how powerful and magickal they are! Whether one at a time or a crowded auditorium or a TV show. On a personal level, Overcoming illness. Beating almost 100,000 people to get on the TV show Wipeout (the World’s biggest obstacle course) to prove my health turnaround. That was so fulfilling that I decided to try out for the TV Show Master Chef I truly can’t cook) and beat almost another 100,000 and found myself cooking for Gordon Ramsey on Season Three. Then, even more inspired, beat another 100,000 people to get on Americas Got Talent. So next thing you know I was rolling around on the floor of the Dolby Theater with Howie Mandell! Life is an adventure – and positive magick works!”

“Elemental Balancing Exercises. This is a repost and excerpt from my book…but thought due to the current world situation it would be a good reminder at very least! I think the key to almost everything is balance. Right now, the whole world is out of balance. So here are my super easy elemental exercises to help get you back in balance within 30 seconds almost anywhere you are!
Picture your entire life in the four basic elements. Earth. Air. Fire. Water. Your Earth is who you are, your home, your sense of being, the womb. Our Air is our thinking brain, our thoughts, our sense of reason, (and often that chatter that won’t shut up when we want it to). Your Fire is your passion, creativity, the blood in your veins, your spirituality. Your Water is your emotions…and remember water is about 70% of our body and 70% of our planet, so our emotions are a big part of who we are. So, the next time you are not as happy as you can be, or productive as you can be, or even as awake and conscious as you would like to be…(we really don’t want to go through life “asleep at the wheel”, “phoned in” or on “automatic pilot”!) Instead of just staying in that state decide which of those four elements is the most out of balance. I promise, one of them will be!
Water/Emotions…Is it your emotions that are out of balance? Are you angry or sad or worried about something? Whether held inside or screamed out the window…whether justified or not, if it is your emotions keeping you from your full experience of life in this moment…you need the water element. An attribute of water is emotion. Think of it like an aspirin for a headache. Just think how good you always feel after a shower. It’s the water! You can’t jump in a shower every time you’re sad or angry or worried, but you can almost always find running water. A sink, a kitchen, a bathroom, a drinking fountain or hose. So, going back to the mind body and spirit equal “home run” formula… walk up to that sink turn on the water, first set your intent (mind) perhaps ask your higher self, God your Spirit guides or whatever words you use that with this water you are releasing this extra emotion. Then run your hands under the sink for 30 seconds (body or action). If you want, you can visualize that anger or sadness running down the drain. The water itself is the “spirit” or battery power! You now have all three elements, so within 30 seconds you will have healthfully released that excess emotion. Gone. Not stuffed down, or ignored or discounted…. just gone. So now, if you need to deal with what caused the emotion, you can now do it without the overwhelm of it. Give it a try… I think you will be pleasantly amazed!
Air/Thoughts… do your thoughts get the best of you sometimes? Do you overthink? Get foggy? Sometimes can you just not get your thoughts to SHUT UP! If so, you need the air element. An attribute of air is thought. In these rushed modern times, very few of us breathe deeply. Unfortunately, the effect of shallow quick breathing goes directly to your head! So just being aware of your breathing can be a huge help in itself…but my “magic fix” for foggy brain is adding some sound to your breath…vowels sounds to be exact. Any vowel, any order. Vowels literally clear the head. Think about how almost every sacred word or chant is a vowel… “Amen”, “Om”, etc. So… next time you get chatty or foggy brain – do my one, two, three (Mind, body, spirit) quick fix. First set your intention that with your deep slow breathing and vowel sounds you will clear and quiet your mind…then just DO IT! Within 30 seconds you will actually notice the chatter in your head begin to stop – and the fog clear up. Great to do before a presentation or important conversation – or anytime you need clear thinking!
Earth/Grounding… If you are not feeling “grounded” or “in your body” – you need to tap into the earth element. Its great to get outside in nature. Get barefoot in the dirt or grass. Hug a tree – literally! But, if you are on the 35th floor of an office building going in to a very important meeting and feeling a little “queasy” – grab ANYTHING that is wood or stone. A pencil, a wooden chair or desk. The granite countertop, a crystal, even the diamond, opal or any stone in your ring. Grab onto it. Decide in your head that this item will ground and center you. Hold on to the object. Deep breath for 30 seconds. Everyone feels this one a little different. I feel like a warm earthen blanket surrounds me. Some people feel like “roots’ are coming out of the soles of their feet into the ground. However it feels to you – you WILL feel immediately grounded and centered.
Fire/Passion…if you are feeling tired, passionless or not inspired – you need to call in the fire element. Maybe you have a hot date with your honey and just not “feeling it.” Or working on a creative or art project and need inspiration – or maybe you are just exhausted, in bed and have to get up! You have all the “earth” you need – but you need the “fire” power to rise and shine. This, like air is breathing and sound magic…Set your head what you want as in the others… than do 30 seconds of deep breathing while going zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. (Ask any eight-year-old what sound a bee makes… you’ve got it!) Within 30 seconds you will start to feel a tingling in the base of your spine. It will rise up and in no time at all you will have all the energy, passion and creativity you need to move forward.
These four techniques really can be like your hidden superhero powers! You can do them anywhere. They cost nothing and take only 30 seconds! Keep them in your invisible back pocket – and pull them out whenever needed for immediate balance and relief!”
