Good morning. Beautiful. So today is a very magical day today is to 20 to 22. And I know in my heart of hearts like I know that by the time you actually listen to this, this day would already have been passed. But I could not let today slip away without sharing just the magic of today’s event. This morning, I had the honor of hosting about nine women and we got to experience a brunch and branding event. This was so much fun and something that has been on my heart for a long time. And I’m just so grateful that it’s here. And it happened. And now I feel like I can breathe. I know, planning events can be really stressful and really exciting and full of anxiety and just all these thoughts swirling around. And for me, it comes from a very like place of perfection. Like I have these visions in my mind, I want things to go a certain way.
And I can honestly say from my heart of hearts that it was just, it was even better than I could have ever imagined. I got to host this in Phoenix, Arizona in a beautiful studio. And the fun part about today is that this was my very first event hosted here in Arizona, I have been hosting events similar to this, whether it be for small business owners, or for my past clients or my future, you know, engaged couples, I’ve I’ve been doing it all and it’s it’s just been so much fun. And so now I just I just feel like I’m in a whole new headspace. And just as magical time, where I feel like I can really just go big, right? Like I feel I like the doors are open, the highway is open, full throttle is engaged, and we’re going places. Okay, so I wanted to share, if you are not able to attend, I just wanted to share some of the things that we went over. And this way you can add it to your routine now. I really truly believe there’s something so magical about this day. And I believe it’s true because I believe it.
So if you are listening to this on a Monday morning, if you’re listening to this on a Friday afternoon, anytime you’re listening to this, I just want you to kind of just take a deep breath. And just remember that you literally are in charge of your magic, like we can create it. So it doesn’t matter where we are, what we’re doing, what time of day it is, you can make the ordinary special. So I kind of want to give a little rundown of exactly what we did during the event, and then give you some action lists and give you some inspiration. So you can take today’s event and then sprinkle it into your own daily life. So we can all be on the same page. We can all experience the same incredible magnetic just like radiant feeling and just go forth and chase our dreams. So we started the morning with brunch, which was really fun. It was catered by over the moon boards and Ashley did an incredible job with the charcuterie boards and this like beautiful brunch setup. I am so so grateful. And as a business owner, I can tell you, it is such a blessing to invest in people to help you. I am not even joking. In years past I used to make these these are just called anti pasta dishes or like salami and cheese blades or I grew up. So the charcuterie boards are like really fancy now. But we grew up making those forever. We literally eat those for dinner all the time. So taking that literally off my plate has been the biggest blessing. So investing in someone to help whether that be for food or setup or behind the scenes. Really, truly makes your life so much easier.
So we started with brunch and some bubbly and we kind of just mingled It was so awesome to have a handful of women that I call my Arizona angels, whether they are instant forever friends that I met recently with a new move here, or they are actually longtime family friends that have recently moved here too. So it was a beautiful blend of new faces. Different parts of my life that just totally collided. And I’m just so grateful that we could all be in the same room. And we can share on this magical day. So after we kind of did some mingling, and just hanging out introductions, then we started with I call it like circle time. So we sat around, and we pulled affirmation cards, Mama was there, she was helping as well. And we actually did we call it like a, like a doTERRA. Like oil bomb, like we took a hit of oil. And so she went around, and she just put a couple of drops of peppermint. And I believe it was wild orange, it may have been Citrus Bliss, with something Orangey. And we put it in the palm of our hands, and we read them together. And then we just like, you literally just put your hand over your nose and your mouth, and you take a nice deep whip, which is why we call it like a oil bomb. And you just suck it in. And it was so invigorating, it literally made our toes tingle, and it just opened up our airways. And it was just, I don’t know, these oils are just so powerful. So it was really awesome is we had, we got to experience these like affirmations and these thoughts and all this content stuff feeling so invigorated and so awakened by these oils, so So of course mom had to put her little oily touch on there, which we are so grateful for.
And yeah, so we pulled affirmation cards, we did introductions. And then I dove right into the workshop, where I share tons of key tips and inspiration about content that converts, I dove into tips and tricks for creating content for your past clients, for your current clients, for your dream clients, friends and family. And then I even share tips on amplifying your brand. So once you have these photos and these videos, and you have this kind of like mindset marketing, so you know, who you’re talking to, you know, how you’re addressing them and how you’re solving their problems and making their life easier, while also sharing about yourself, and also sprinkling in your personality and your products and not feeling salesy, like all of these things, right, I could just work dump a million things on you right now. But that’s what we went over today. And if you are interested in learning more about that, please like hop on Instagram, send me a DM, I will be emailing the PDF, like the actual content to the girls that attended. So if you’d like access to that, please let me know. So after that content stuff, then we have these big huge posts, which are my like love language, I love those humongous posts that just like rip off and stick up on the wall there Peel and Stick and they’re humongous. So I had asked the girls to write out 22 things that they are grateful for. And 22 things that they desire. And I quickly explained how how much power there is in simply believing that what you desire, and the things that you crave. And the things that you wish for in your life are already within, like you already carry everything that you want, everything is at your fingertips. The things that materialistically aren’t there yet or on its way to you. And if it’s not there yet, there’s probably a reason for it. And we can dive deeper into that into another conversation.
But yes, I really, really wanted both of those lists those lists of 22 each to just kind of like, blend together. And this is the power of visualization and actually seeing those words on paper. So while the girls are doing that, then I kind of pluck them one by one. And we took photos for their branding and for their content. And what made this shoot so special and so much fun was that I asked them to embody their affirmations. So I literally asked each girl like, Okay, tell me like, tell me what it is right? Like, what are we manifesting right now? Who are you? What are we celebrating? And you know, how can I support you? And what made this so much fun is of course I’ve done a million of these shoots before and I love I’m like the biggest cheerleader and the biggest hype girl I love connecting with my clients and my you know, small business owners and friends. And I just love making them feel so beautiful and perfectly them in their own skin. Like that is just that is just what I live for.
And I just I really love about photography. It has nothing to do with my camera. But the magic that happens between me and my lens and my clients, right. So I’ve done this before, this is my game. But what made it different was we were celebrating these wins as if it’s already happened. So that was so much fun. I got to learn So much more about each of the women that were there, I got to support them and just totally hype them up as if these things are already a part of their life. So that was pretty much it. And then we just got to get to know each other a little bit more. We also passed out Rose Quartz stones. So I am a huge, huge like crystal lover and stone lover, I totally believe in the power of stones. And what I love about Rose Quartz at each of the girls, grab two on the way out, one for them to keep and one for them to pass to a friend. Or to anybody really someone random. And what’s awesome about Rose Quartz is it truly is a stone, for love. It is a great energy for finding clarity in your thoughts in your mind and in your heart. And it is a great protector of your energy. So if you’re like, you know, holding on to that rose quartz, whether you keep it in your purse, you keep it in your pocket, if it’s tiny.
You can you know, keep it on the counter in your bathroom, or near the sink in your kitchen, somewhere you’re gonna see it often even I have a little pile of rocks in my car. Because I just, I want all the powers to be around me, right? And it’s okay if you think I’m crazy. But that’s just what I what I love. So with just the power in not only receiving but then also giving love and radiating that love back into the universe. And so, so yeah, so without getting too woowoo and crazy. Each of the girls were able to take those stones home. And that’s what pretty much concluded the day. I mean, it was so much fun. I cannot thank my friend Tara who captured behind the scenes video and photos for us. I am so blessed to be surrounded by women that want to show up and help and to just truly be supportive and caring. So thank you so much, Tara for your help on that. And yeah, so that was phase event, I could not be more grateful. And just just so excited that today happened. And I wanted to share with you before you go a couple things to do.
As you know, I am a challenger and I love creating space for you to succeed and feel loved. So first and foremost, if you haven’t done it yet, even as I know, by the time you’re listening to this, it’s not even 220 do and I totally get it. But I really do challenge you to get out a piece of paper, get out a notebook, something if you have to read it on your phone, that’s fine. But I highly encourage you to actually write this out with pen and paper. And I want you to write out 22 things that you’re grateful for. And 22 Things that you desire, they can be something as simple as I am grateful I have gas in my car. I am grateful for waking up today. I am grateful for fresh air. When I go on my walks in the morning. I’m thankful for my family. I mean, you can go as deep wide. And as you know, specific as you can. And as far as things that you desire, that doesn’t always just have to be like I desire to be a millionaire. Like, I want you to truly dig deeper and think about where’s that money going? How can you be generous with your money if it is a financial goal? If it’s love that you’re looking for, like so for me, for example, when I wrote my list, I didn’t just write like, oh, I want to be married? No, no, like I’m writing like, I’m looking for a soul connection. I’m looking for someone that makes everyday moments happy. You know, turns daily chores into find someone that truly loves and accepts me for exactly who I am, while still challenging me to be a better version of myself every day like that love and acceptance. And that feeling is what we’re going for.
Okay, so I challenge you to look within and to share exactly what you’re grateful for. And then what you desire. And then one more thing, I’m always like in wait, there’s more. I have one more challenge for you, babe. Okay, so before the day is over, and I know you can you might say, Oh, I’ll get to this, I’ll get to this. But no, I challenge you. Please, today, I challenge you to take a selfie of yourself. And it doesn’t have to be pretty. It doesn’t have to be styled and perfect. It doesn’t even have to be good lighting. I challenge you to just photograph yourself in your own skin today. And if you can somehow like through an app, either or even through Instagram, you can do this. You can go like you’re going to create a story and then add texts, okay, so you don’t have to share this. You don’t have to put it on the world if you don’t want to. But I challenge you to add text to that image. And what you’re going to write is an affirmation and you’re going to write who you are as your highest self
Okay, so I challenge you to share, like and you can even say like you can write yourself in third person or you can speak you know, in first person. But I challenge you to write a couple things about yourself, like who you are, where you’re going. And just embody exactly what you desire as if it’s already true. If you have to make that your like phone background for a couple of days, printed out and put it you know, in your office or something, you know, maybe on the side of your refrigerator that you see everyday when you’re making your coffee, I challenge you to literally take a selfie of yourself and post those words and believe it whole heartedly believe that those affirmations are exactly who you are, the more we can speak our truth and more we can speak our desires, and even our fears too. But the more we talk about our thoughts, like that is what’s going to create that action. It’s what’s going to create those molecular like, just chain reaction I know you can’t see right now, but I’m like, like air drawing little, you know, atomic bombs here coming through the, you know, through the sound waves, and just radiating exactly what you’re going for, and what your truest desires are.
So, I’m getting a little loopy now. It’s been a super, super long day. I hope you find this helpful as far as stepping into your power, creating events, and moments that truly leave an impact. Not just for your own business, but for those around you. And I challenge you to turn every day, everyday, mundaneness and every fun Taco Tuesday into something magical. I know our days are limited. And we are just ticking and ticking and ticking. And I just I just challenge you to step into your power show up and truly spread your light so others can shine. So I hope you have a fabulous day. Keep on dancing baby and I cannot wait to chat soon.
