SCENTS, SENSE-SIBILITIES & SACRED SELF-CARE – PART 1

Massage Sister 2
We are spirit beings blessed by The Creator with five physical senses. Many believers however feel that ministering to ones senses with self-indulging therapies is of the flesh and therefore ungodly. I believe this thinking came from the fact that the ancient Romans who created the original bath houses and health spas if-you-will were pagans and considered hedonistic. They expanded on the Greeks glorification of aromatic plants for health, beauty and gifts to their gods and goddesses. In the opulent baths of Caracalla, Roman citizens could choose from twenty or so types of treatments, including steams, friction rubs and massages with therapeutic oils and mineral baths with costly, fragrant unguents to enhance the healing properties of the spa waters.
The Egyptians understood the importance of fragrant essences, herbs, water and massage therapy as part of maintaining good health. They are considered the original “mix-masters” of herbs, resins and other natural essences for health, beauty and “eternal” preservation.

Never-the-less these associations have not been favorable amongst Christians as we observed the teachings of Apostle Paul in Romans 8:12-13 (when it’s convenient) “Therefore, brethren, we are debtors — not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.”
The pursuit of or devotion to pleasures of the senses were often considered hedonism because it was believed to cause preoccupation with the flesh and its desires. For this reason Christians have shone away from pampering body practices that stimulate the senses and put too much emphasis on the physical needs of the body.

A balance of understanding would show us that living under submission to the Lord keeps us from living according to the flesh. To live according to the flesh is to live continually satisfying the lustful appetites of the flesh. Self-care is by no means lustful or fleshy. The reality is, God has given us our five physical senses for survival purposes, balance of body-systems, bring us pleasure, and as a means for us to experience His glory. It was Satan who introduced the sinful ways to exploit our senses.

That fact that God equipped us with five senses proves that we were His most beloved creation. These senses provide us with the ability to utilize all of the beauty and health benefits of nature. Science shows us that we have been given specially developed systems within the eye, ear, nose, tongue, and skin to translate sensory information into electrical signals which are passed along the nervous system to the brain. The brain then understands and processes this information, enabling us to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel. Although our senses work independently of one another, they can also work together, compensating for each other or adding to the information the brain receives. God created plants (including their leaves, bark, roots and resins) to feed us, heal us and assist with our wellbeing. It is through the use of our senses that we are able to enjoy the beauty and bliss of plants in so many ways. “Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food, their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.”— Ezekiel 47:12

Instead of rushing through life, stressed-out and overwhelmed why not treat yourself to what I call “spa moments” through Sacred Self Care.

Yes, we were created with the physical senses and biological makeup to benefit from plants in many marvelous ways and Aromatherapy is one of them. Aromatherapy is not a New Age modality. Aromatherapy is one of the most blissful forms of Sacred Self-Care. The bible shows us how fragrant flowering plants and aromatic herbs and essential oils were used spiritually, medicinally, for burial use, and for romance as well. People are often surprised when I say that Jesus would have been a good client of mine. I say this because of how much He loved good quality plant-based fragrance oils. I believe He enjoyed the oils for their calming effects and the frequency they emitted, as well as the pleasing aromas they left on Him. But this should be of no surprise because we know that Jesus lived a balanced life. During His earthly ministry He needed to stay healthy to do all that was set before him. He disciplined His flesh when needed, but He also ministered to His senses. He took mini getaways from everyone where He fasted and prayed. He also visited friends like Mary and Martha who ministered to His senses — through His sense of taste with delicious, healthy food and His sense of smell with 16 ounces of expensive pure, plant-based perfume oil (that is a lot of fragrance). If that wasn’t Aromatherapy I don’t know what is. Perhaps He experienced what is now termed reflexology with the massaging of His feet with Mary’s hair.

“Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil.” John 12:3

“A women came to Him (Jesus) having an alabaster flask of very costly fragrant oil, and she poured it on His head as He sat at the table. But when the disciples saw it they were indignant, saying “why this waste? For this fragrant oil might have been sold for much and given to the poor.” But when Jesus was aware of it, He said to them, “Why do you trouble the women? For she has done a good work for me.” Matthew 26:7-10

Aromatherapy helps to bring balance and restoration to the mind-body system. Aromatherapy is both holistic and practical in that it can protect the body’s life-saving immune system as well as stabilize emotions. Aromatherapy allows us to experience pure bliss in moments steeped in aromatic pleasures. Breathe in the essential oils from the marjoram plant and you may experience a bit of euphoria. Feel the cobwebs wash away as the stimulating peppermint and rosemary oils clear and refresh your mind. This is “True Aromatherapy”. Aromatherapy beautifies as essential oils are quickly absorbed and can penetrate the skin easily, allowing for delightful restorative and de-toxifying facials and body treatments. Aromatherapy is truly a benefit and a blessing to all who are willing to embark on this beautiful, aromatic journey.

Much love,

Turning Pain Into Power

JesusMy “Spiritual Godmother” Joyce Meyer learned hundreds of lessons from the Holy Spirit during her “mess to mission” journey. Many of those lessons formed the foundation of which I built my life and business on. The one I want to share with you today I like to call “Pitiful or Powerful”. It’s based on the story Joyce tells about when she was going through a very challenging time in the early stage of ministry. The circumstance caused her to often complain to God and feel sorry for herself. One day during her prayer time, which had become more about graveling than gratitude, the Lord said to her “Joyce you can be pitiful or powerful but you can’t be both!” Needless to say she chose to turn her Pain into Power! I for one thank God that she did!

I know we are past the halfway mark of 2017! That’s still a little hard for me to wrap my head around. None-the-less it is what it is! Time is moving on! The sad reality however is with time comes challenges, setbacks, heartache and loss. In short, most of us already had our share of pain and suffering this year. My cousin who just recently had a second son under 40 pass away from a sudden illness this year is just one example that comes to mind! When you add something like that to the compounded pain from years prior it’s easy to see how we can become weakened by “soul traumas”.

I’ve come to the realization that life is not for the faint of heart and if you want to survive, much less thrive you have to activate the Supernatural Power Sources that reside within you! God knew that we would need Supernatural assistance to rise above the hurt, pain and suffering that we each would endure in this world. That power was not natural power, or demonic power, it was and is the Supernatural Power of the Anointed One and His Anointing. Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you…”
I want to encourage you to resolve to turn your pain into power so that you can turn your mess into your mission! It may be a stretch for your soul (your mind, will and emotions) but you can totally do it! Luke 9:1-2 “Then He called His twelve disciples together, and gave them the power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And He sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.” I know that this is true because I had to OVER COME lots of oppositions through the years in order to have the blissfully-blessed, freedom-based lifestyle I live today! Let me show you what I mean…
On January 3rd 2003 my only brother Nate passed away. I turned my pain into power by opening my first storefront business (A Scentimental Journey). In January 2008 I became ill from a life-threating blood disease. By 2010 I turned my pain into power by turning everything God told me to do in order to heal my soul, body and finances into a coaching company called Sharing The Bliss. By 2011 I facilitated my first 28-Day Body & Soul Detox at St. Philips Baptist Church in Staten Island, NY. That December my sister Darlene passed away 4 days before my birthday. In 2012 I turned my pain into power by hosting 2 Blog Talk Radio shows, getting my first 5K sponsor and investing 10K in a business coach. In May 2013 I hosted my first 2 day live event (Mess-2-Mission). That December 19th (my birthday) I severely broke my 2 (right) wrist bones and dislocated my shoulder. In January 2014 I turned my pain into power by facilitating an amazing 28-Day Body & Soul Detox group program and hosted a multi-speaker online event (The Kingdom-preneur’s 6-7 Figure Business Blueprint Telesummit) that enabled me to fill my first Package Your Purpose group program. In December 2014 the blood illness came back but that May I turned my pain into power by hosting a fabulous 2 day “Business & Bliss” Workshop & Retreat in Maryland and went back to school to become an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach (Certified by NYC)! In August, 2016 my middle sister, Pamela-Iman passed away. She was my last living sibling and immediate family member. I turned my pain into power by going full speed ahead with my 2 Outreach Missions (The Truly Organic Community Garden Project and The Church Health Reform and Wellness Mission).

You see the pattern? I’ve learned how to use the spiritual empowerments God has placed in all of us to strengthen me when I was at my weakest and so can you! Luke 10:19 “Behold I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
Most people allow painful circumstances to take them out of the game. Others use them as their reason for never getting in the game. Then there are those who use their pain to win the game! Don’t get me wrong, I have to fight the spirit of self-pity often. But when it comes on me I simply remind myself that I can be pitiful or powerful, but I can’t be both!

MY COACH’S REQUEST:
Meditate on the scriptures in this article as well as the following day and night.
II Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power and God and of love, and of a sound mind.”
II Corinthians 4:17 “For (my) light afflictions, which (was) for a moment, is working for (me) a far more exceeding and eternal weight of Glory.“

Remind yourself daily of the amazing spiritual resources that empower you.
• You have the Word of God.
• You have the Holy Spirit
• You have the Name of Jesus.
• You have the Blood of Jesus.
• You have Faith.
• You have the Anointing.
• You have the Mind of Christ.
• You have Legions of Angels.
• You can receive the Baptism of The Holy Spirit and a Heavenly Language.
• You have Domination (over time, space and matter).
• You have The Fruit of The Spirit
• You have the power of Praise.
• You have Grace of God.
• You have the Favor of God.
• You have the Peace of God.
• You have the Joy of The Lord which is our strength.

Much love,
Coach Carmen

How The Universe Reacts To Your Feelings

Wellness_Poster_9WHAT WE’RE FEELING AND WHAT WE’RE RECEIVING WILL ALWAYS BE A VIBRATIONAL MATCH.
Just as radio and television waves, internet access and cellular phone calls are transmitted through the air to a receiver, so is the transmission of thought to the universe. Our attitude, moods and impulses are controlled by the thoughts we receive and act upon. The thoughts we receive and act upon send out signals to the universe that draw the physical manifestation of those exact things to us (good or bad).

God created us as vibrational beings and placed us in a vibrational universe. Though we consciously pray to God to meet our needs, vibrationally we are sending out on going requests unconsciously to the universe. These unconscious signals are our FEELINGS. Our Feelings speak more clearly of what we want, and don’t want than any words we speak. So though we may ask God for what we want with our words, the universe is consistently manifesting what our feelings are asking for. In other words there are two parts of the asking equation that which we say we want with ours words, and that which we express through our emotions.

God has told us to ask and it shall be given unto us. With this new understanding we may better see why we are not getting enough of what we are asking for (with our words). We can better see why we are getting so much more of what we are asking for with our emotions and feelings. The reason for this is based on the fact that we spend more time, and are usually 100 times more passionate about what we are feeling, than what we are saying when we pray, make our faith confessions and repeat our declarations. Most of us do not pray and declare what we are believing for throughout the day. We do however express our emotions and react minute by minute as we “FEEL” the experience of disappointments, concerns, physical pain, frustrations, stress and so on.

The good news is, changing our feelings is as “simple” as changing our thoughts and by doing so we can and will change our lives!

“Sacred Self-Care” For Kingdom Heiresses


“Sacred Self-Care” is not about caring in the sense of worry and concern, and trying to be “Holy Ghost Junior”. Jesus told us to cast our cares upon Him, for He cares for us. The full definition of care also includes: “close attention, upkeep, maintenance, watchful oversight, charge or supervision, attentive assistance or treating one in need.” This is what “Sacred Self-Care” is all about. It’s Kingdom living at it’s best. It’s caring so much about who you are and “who’s” you are, that you do all that’s required to stay in alignment with `God’s way of doing a being right’.

The question you must ask yourself is: “How serious am I about living my life as a Kingdom heir?” God did His part when He gave YOU Jesus. Jesus came so that YOU would have life and have it more abundantly. He died on Calvary so that YOU would be free from every curse. Angels have been sent of God to ensure YOUR health, protection, and blessings. God has assigned the entire universe to do your bidding. The world’s stage has been set for YOUR success. So the question is what part are YOU going play?

Biblical Confirmations of Prosperity Angels (Money Manifestation Part 3)

prosperityangelYes, there are holy angels whose job is to assist us in leading successful and fulfilling lives.  We see angels at work in and throughout the bible, although they are not labeled as Prosperity Angels. In fact the Scriptures mention their existence almost three hundred times.

In Genesis 22:15-17 an angel brought Abraham a ram so he wouldn’t have to sacrifice his son. “Then the Angel called to Abraham a second time out of heaven, and said: By myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son – blessings I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you…” If that’s not prosperity I don’t know what is!

Abraham was accustomed to having angels guide him as he journeyed in the land of Canaan. He revealed this when he sent his steward to look for a wife for his son in Genesis 24:40 “But he said to me, “The Lord, before whom I walk will send His angel with you and prosper your way.“ The steward prayed to God asking for specific signs to be revealed in the woman who would be Isaac’s wife. The Lord sent an angel before him to make his quest successful and fulfilled his desire exactly as he asked. Even the successful choice of a mate is considered to be a sign of prosperity. This shows me that we too can enlist the help of our Prosperity Angels to go before us to make our way prosperous and bring us good success. I’ve heard of missionaries who would pray and ask the Lord to send prosperity angels ahead of them and their missions were always easier as a result. Isaiah 63:9 “In all their affliction He (Jesus) was afflicted, And the Angel of His presence saved them.” We need to be strategically assigning our Prosperity Angel to help us get free from all of our afflictions including financial ones!

Here’s another example in Genesis 28:12-16 when Jacob saw angels ascending and descending upon a ladder between heaven and earth as he escaped Esau’s death threat.  The angels were demonstrating their closeness to him and drawing his attention to the Lord who stood above the ladder, giving a promise to bless him in the land that he would live. This was a reassuring and wonderful event, giving him consolation that the Lord was with him. Angels are closer to us than we realize.

As a Kingdom-preneur my favorite account of an angel causing supernatural wealth creation is in Genesis 31: 1- 13. The angel of the Lord spoke to Jacob in a dream, telling him how to mate the animals that would be strong and reproduce (an early example of genetics). Jacob followed the Lord’s instructions and his animals multiplied exceeding and were stronger than Laban’s. This caused Jacob to become very successful!

Revelation 12:7 And a war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angles fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought. Your Prosperity Angel can slay your money dragons for you!

The bible proliferates with many more examples that we have angelic support. Do a study and be encouraged! You’re not alone!

I feel so blessed and special that God loves me so much that He would assign a beautiful, loving heavenly being to take care of me financially. I don’t have to prove anything. I don’t have to hustle anymore. I don’t have to over give of myself. I don’t have to do a song and a dance for anyone anymore. I don’t have to sacrifice my health anymore. I don’t have to be stressed out and put myself dead last anymore! I can actually soften and breathe and live my bliss and SO CAN YOU! We are that special! We are that worthy! We are that loved!

THE ANGEL Of PROSPERITY

MONEY MASTERY SERIES PART 2

prosperity_angel1How’s your relationship with Money? When you think about prosperity, wealth and abundance does a big, bright smile come cross your face or do you roll your eyes and shake your head in disgust?

What would happen to your relationship with someone who you only thought badly about? You felt that they weren’t supportive, that they were never there when you needed them, and that once they did show up they always left too soon.

The problem is what you focus on will always expand. So if you focus on how someone in a relationship with you is doing you wrong and you tell others how miserable you are as a result, you’ll only get more of that in your life. And you best believe this includes your relationship with money! This is not about falling in love with money it’s about honoring, respecting and trusting the SOURCE of it! When you do, you become attractive to money and money becomes more attractive to you. This beloved is very powerful so breathe it in!

When we struggle with money it’s simply because we’re not in vibrational alignment with it. You see money is just energy” and like all energy, it is neither lost nor destroyed, it is merely transferred from one party to another. So, that means that if you allow bad energy to surround your relationship with money, it prevents a positive transfer of money from occurring.

A QUICK EXERCISE…. Think about having a relationship with your ultimate version of a true-blue BFF. Think of a person who loves and supports you unconditionally, a person who cares about you and only wants the best for you in all situations. They are wealthy and there’s nothing they wouldn’t give you. Whatever you want, need and desire is yours for the asking. Wow what a friend!

Now, close your eyes and imagine that instead of a physical person this is actually your Prosperity Angel. The amazing thing is we all have one. When you think of money as a physical expression of God’s love it only makes sense that He would create and assign Prosperity Angels to insure that we have it! Psalms 91:11 “For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.”

The first time God showed me this, I can honestly tell you that I felt a shift in my soul immediately. And more importantly I felt different about prosperity. I felt like it loved me because it came from Love. I knew then that it would support me and would never leave me because God created it to take care of me. I call my Prosperity Angel “Prosperity”.

God has long been assigning angels to ensure that our journeys or endeavors would be successful, expeditious, direct (no wandering) and easy. And He has angels assigned specifically to assist us in becoming financially prosperous. I believe them to be Prosperity Angels and I also believe that we all have been assigned at least one. We can enlist our Prosperity Angel’s help by asking them for assistance in the area of our finances. This is not praying to them, but rather making a request as if asking a good reliable friend for help or assistance.

Your Prosperity Angel is fierce, strong, protective and yet very loving, warm and sensitive. He (it) was created by an expansive, generous and giving God. His (It’s) assignment is to serve you and insure that you receive all of the wealth and abundance that Jesus died for you to have. All he asks is that you stay in alignment with the Kingdom of God (God’s way of doing and being right), your birthright as a Kingdom heir/heiress and to be open to receive. The receiving part is not as easy as it may sound, especially if you’re used to being in control like I was. To receive means to be open, to trust and relax. You have to have faith to receive.

Your prosperity angel doesn’t want you to worry or fret or stress about anything because he’s in charge. He’s on assignment! This is his work and he’s been waiting for a long time to do it! Your job is to do your spiritual work {more on that later) and your physical work (be it a business, job, ministry or mission). He wants you to LEAN BACK, BREATHE into your belly and be relaxed, happy, beautiful and playful. I know for myself going from being a “workaholic” to learning to relax, be beautiful and playful was a job in itself! Now I can ease up and know that Prosperity has my back! Luke 4:10 “For it is written: He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you;”

PROSPERITY IS A RESPONSIBILITY (Part 1 of the Money Mastery Series)

abundance-quoteIf I said that you have a responsibility to be prosperous what would you say? Would you believe me or would you think that I’ve been drinking too much green juice? Well either way if you’re interested in having more prosperity in your life this 4 week Money Mastery blog series will truly bless you! Not only will you learn why receiving fabulous money is a profound part of your spiritual path as a Kingdom Heir/Heiress, together we’ll breakthrough lots of “money blocks”.

It seems like only yesterday that I was coming out of my “Cocoon Experience”. I was overcoming a blood illness, the loss of 2 businesses, the loss of our apartment and my husband’s job with the Board of Education. We were broke! There was no job, no steady business income, no checks from the city or state! We did have bills and debt. I also needed to eat only organic food in order to continue healing. Thank God we had years of teachings on prosperity mindset, faith and the law of sowing & reaping. Even though we barely had any income, those principles enabled us to live a life that was nothing short of miraculous!

I became so used to living on “Miracle Money” that I lost my ability to flex my “Money Muscles”. Then I read something my spiritual dad Kenneth Copeland wrote that jerked the slack and the lack out of me. He said that “financial prosperity is not simply a luxury, it is a responsibility!” I knew then that I had to completely reprogram my thoughts, actions and feelings around money and that wasn’t easy!

It was the year I began Sharing The Bliss. The issue was everything I knew about business was   shifting as the internet was kicking into full throttle. I spent 16 hours every day creating the transformational programs for my business, while studying this new way of marketing.

I finally got responsible and made an “all or nothing” NMW (No Matter What) decision to do what it took to bring in income from my business. When I made that decision, I knew I couldn’t do it alone so I carefully sought out mentors: women who were wildly successful in their heart-centered service-based businesses while enjoying the time, money and freedom to travel the world.

I made a careful study of their beliefs, thoughts and habits. After sorting out the unscriptural I began adopting much of their way of doing business as my own. Sometimes it was really hard to shift the old patterns! Yet, slowly but surely, my mind, business and life started to change. I filled two 28-Day Body & Soul Detox church programs and wrote a proposal that landed me my first $5,000 sponsor.

Now, I’m blessed to run a business of bliss that serves phenomenal women from all over the world. I love my life, which includes plenty of quality time off with my wonderful husband. My business and its outreach missions are a true expression of my life’s purpose. The thing is the journey of creating this freedom-based lifestyle entirely from scratch didn’t happen until I broke through my OWN money-blocking wall, questioning every spiritual and practical belief I held about money. I urge you to do the same because what’s on the OTHER SIDE of that wall is the true you, that heiress/heir who’s totally aligned with wealth!

Most of us know that it’s been our beliefs about money that has driven our actions, which has lead us to where we are today financially. What I’ve found is that in order to change those beliefs there needs to be a renewing of our minds about money. This means that we must also become discriminating about what we let into our thoughts because what we think about we bring about! This is exactly why I’ve created this program for you (and me).

Let’s began with an important question… What Is Prosperity and Is It Godly?

The Greek word for prosper means:

  • to grant a prosperous and expeditious journey, to  lead by a direct and easy way
  • to grant a successful issue, to cause to prosper
  • to be successful

The dictionary definition of prosperity is a successful, flourishing and thriving condition especially in financial respects. It’s also defined as having good fortune.

The answer is YES! Regardless to what you’ve been taught, Prosperity is Godly! God wants us to prosper, in fact He created us to live a prosperous life. Psalm 35:27 says, “Let the Lord be magnified who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”

Traditionally the church has looked down upon prosperity even though the bible speaks more about it being our birthright than just about any other subject. I believe this has much to do with the few scriptures that seem to speak against it, as well as old beliefs that have been passed down for generations. I know that 1 Timothy 6:10 was a big stopper and blocker for me. “The love of money is the root of all evil.” I finally flat-out asked God to give me the revelation I needed to settle my soul and get out of money-incongruences. He first had me revisit 1 Timothy 6:10. I realized that it is usually misquoted to read “money is the root of all evil”. Removing the word love makes a big difference. Secondly the Holy Spirit told me to exchange the word love for lust in the scripture. I learned that lust is a perverted version of love. It’s love without God. There are probably more people without money committing the sin of “money lust” than people with money. I mean just think about all the people without money who are lusting after it rather than seeking God for it. I know I was one of those people for the first half of my life.

There is no question about it! God wants us to prosper but it’s our responsibility to renew our minds so that we can do so. 1 John 3: 2prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers”.

Much love,

New Traditions

thanksgiving-2016-3

Hello Beloved,

How was your Thanksgiving beloved? I pray that it was everything you wanted it to be!

Anthony and I were blessed to have two of my sister Pam’s girls over along with my sister Darlene’s husband and son. Admittedly the holidays will never be the same now that my sisters and our two brothers are celebrating in heaven. I’m grateful however that rather than focusing on the way things were we are creating new traditions. One of them is having organic vegetarian/vegan holidays at our home here on Staten Island. In addition to family, joining us around the table on Thursday was my niece Rachel’s boyfriend Rudy seated next to Zai (our spiritual God daughter) and my sista-friend and Outreach Missions Manager Tanisha seated across from Zai.

Dinner began with lentil & barley soup then salad with Coach Carmen’s Asian Dressing. The main course was “rib tips”, basmati rice & peas, sautéed veggies with caramelized ginger/maple carrots, stuffing and macaroni & cheese which was made by my niece Anwar for tradition’s sake!

Much love,

CC

 

Ending Strong Is Your Birthright!

ending-strong-teleclass-header3Hey Carmen,

How are you love?

Is it just me or did this year seem to fly by? I remember last December like it was yesterday. I was blessed to celebration my birthday by hosting a dinner party at my home. We had a ball! My sister and I got to sing along to every song as we watched The Wiz on television. I had no idea that it would be our final holiday we’d spend together.

How was your year so far? Was it all that you’d hope it would be? The truth is, it doesn’t matter how it started out, or how things are looking now. You can turn it all around by January of 2017 with a strategy to go from mess to miracle! It’s a big leap but you can totally do it! I know that this is true because I had to “leap frog” my way over lots of opposition through the years, in order to be living the blissfully-blessed freedom-based lifestyle I’m living today! Let me show you what I mean…

In 2010 I was finally coming out of a 3 year battle with a life-threating blood disease. In 2011 I leap frogged and took St. Philips Baptist Church in Staten Island through my detox program. That December my sister Darlene passed away 4 days before my birthday. In 2012 I leap frogged and officially launched Sharing The Bliss, had 2 radio shows, got my first 5K sponsor and invested 10K in a business coach. In May 2013 hosted my first 2 day live event (Mess-2-Mission). That December 19th (on my birthday) I severely broke my 2 (right) wrist bones and dislocated my shoulder. In January 2014 I leap frogged and facilitated an amazing 5 week group detox program and hosted a multi-speaker online event that enabled me to fill my first Package Your Purpose group program. In December 2014 the blood illness came back but that May I leap frogged and hosted a fabulous 2 day live event in Maryland! This August, 2016 I lost my sister Pamela, she was my last sibling. So now I prepare to leap frog!

You see the pattern? I’ve mastered the art of leaping over mess into miracles and so can you! Most people allow messed-up circumstances to take them out of the game. Others use them as their reason for never getting in the game.

One thing you a count on is that mess happens! It’s not always as devastating as the passing of a loved one, or serious illness. Whatever it is, if it’s keeping you from ending strong this year join me on Tuesday November 1st at 7:00 PM EST for a FREE Teleclass entitled “Ending Strong In 2016” (How To Leap Frog Your Way Into An Amazing 2017).
