Commitment is a funny word

Commitment is the door to manifestation. Yes, you read correctly.

Commitment. Simple isn’t it? Yet, commitment requires quite a lot of us, not only commitment (LOL)! It requires clarity, passion, focus and unwavering faith!

In my life, I have discovered that commitment tends to be in symbiosis with passion. Passion simply leads you into committing into your passion, as redundant as it might seem, it is also crucial.

When we commit to our passion, to our goal, to our dream, every single event, every decision that calls for our attention, and every curveball that comes our way, gets easily aligned through the “filter” of commitment.

Commitment makes us show up, makes us make the right decision, and makes us take the right action.

Think about it.

Follow this simple exercise to find your commitment or to check into the one you have.

Sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and relax. As you are in this relaxed state ask yourself three basic questions:

1) Who am I
2) What do I want
3) How can I best serve

This exercise will help you figure out where is it you are called into putting your commitment, which is your guiding passion, what action is the one that will bring you the fulfilling life that you truly desire.

“If I had six hours to chop down a tree, I would spend the first four hours sharpening the ax.”  [Abraham Lincoln]

This is my story: honest and vulnerable money talk.

I hear so many times friends and clients as they share with me that they can’t seem to make more than “a given amount” of money per year, no matter what they do or how hard they work for it.

I can speak for myself when I say that I have learned both consciously and subconsciously limiting beliefs around money and power.

Have you ever heard any of these phrases below spoken by friends and family as you grew up?

  • He has a lot of money I wonder what he did to earn it
  • I don’t need money
  • Money doesn’t matter to me
  • A woman’s place is in the kitchen (LMAO exaggerating…to make the point)
  • Money is dirty
  • You have to work very hard to earn money
  • You cannot make money unless you work every single waking hour
  • Fear about running out of food
  • The “children in [any given poor country]” would be very happy to eat what you are leaving on your plate …

and many more versions of these concepts.

Glass ceilings, harassment, power, money.

They are all related and it reflects in our lives as an inability to be able to reach for more if we so desire. Our unconscious makes sure it “sabotages” us to keep us at the level it believes we should be (as small or as big as it believes it should be).

Clearly the same is true also for very wealthy people. For them it is a given that they should be wealthy, why not? Whatever beliefs they have it encompasses their ability to create and keep a wealthy lifestyle.

My limiting beliefs have all been embedded in the thread of my subconscious by my Italian parents who lived through World War II.

I grew up in a household where my mom would fill up the pantry until it was full to the gills…. what she experienced during the war when they run out of food when they were forced to leave their home and escape to the countryside, run many of her actions while I was a child.

For example in my house food portions were “rations” served at our table and we ate leftovers and the leftovers of the leftovers.

Nothing wrong with eating leftovers. I still re-vamp them today and I love them. I am talking about something deep here. Something that runs below the surface where our minds cannot reach or aren’t sometimes even aware of this.


Personally, I can say that I have lived through all of the above and then some.

I had to work at it.

Letting go of these beliefs wasn’t easy.

Consistent mindset work paired with journaling, with energy work, with deprogramming cellular memories, with regressions and more.

Each one of us has our own path. What I learned is that it doesn’t have to be “this hard” to let go. It boils down to “giving myself permission”. We can do all of the exercises we want but if we don’t give ourselves permission we cannot rewrite our truth.

I am writing this newsletter today to encourage yourself to give yourself permission. To do what it takes to re-write your story. It is up to you and only up to you. No one can grant you this permission.

Sure I can help you and other coaches can help you too. We can help you peel the onion, dig deep and let go, teach you techniques to change the energy and the beliefs but in the end, YOU MUST GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION AND YOU MUST REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE WORTHY no matter what and for no particular reason.

Got it?




Love and light.
Shine bright!

Ensure you meet your non-negotiable goals this year!


A small tiny course correct can help achieve your goals.

I hope you had a wonderful first week of the year, still with the “holiday season” feelings in your heart!

Now that we are already in WEEK 2 of the new year it is time to get serious!

At this time of the year, we are all about those fitness goals, weight loss goals, business goals, life goals, and more, that all of us normally put out there!

Can you see yourself full of glee and satisfaction awaiting the New Year for 2019?

Probably not huh?

While I love the drive that comes with a fresh start, a lot of what people promise to do in January ends up being unsustainable or becomes less appealing with time, and as the year goes by the good intentions get diluted and fall through into oblivion.


This is why today I want to invite you to get crystal clear on THREE NON-NEGOTIABLE goals for this new year. Make sure you sit down with your journal at hand, your heart connected to your roots and your soul and express clearly 3 things you absolutely MUST achieve this year.

In order to identify them, you can think in your mind “what will happen if I don’t achieve goal a/b/c”?

Connect with how would you FEEL when you achieve these goals. Let the “emotions” be your drive

Once you have got these three goals clearly stated write them down and place them where you can see them all the time around your house.

Have fun with this!!!

If it has to do with self-care or self-worth, how about post-it notes on your bathroom mirror!!!  This way you connect with your goal daily first thing in the morning.

What do you think of post-it notes on the door of the fridge so you can be reminded of them when you get your breakfast early in the day!

Wouldn’t you like to print them and place them in a frame on top of your coffee table in the living room or in your workspace on your desk! 🙂

In order to make sure you pursue them every month at the beginning of every month during 2018 ask yourself what FIVE things you MUST do/achieve in order to stay in line with these non-negotiable goals.

Ask yourself: “are things moving in the right direction? Are situations changing and shifting gradually in the right direction? Or not at all?

Am I making the decisions needed to veer the course in small degrees towards your goals and taking action to back my decisions?

Make sure you do this every single month and make sure you course correct. Remember, you can continuously check if you are on or off course and make small adjustments with your goals in mind.

Keep the intentions alive as time goes by. This is key to make you reach New Year’s Eve 2019 with a smile on your lips and a super fulfilled and joyful heart!

Make this year important and memorable for you.

It is within your power to make this one the best year of your life.

Start today.

With much love.

Shine bright!

What? Energy doesn’t exist?


What? Energy doesn’t exist.

I am so sick of hearing this being played back at me every time I speak to my 19 year old about coaching and about the power we all have to create our own reality! 🙂

Argh…. But since I like challenges, I set myself to find a way in which to explain this concept in terms that everyone can understand it, using music as an example since my son is a musician….
Curious? I hope so!
We all live in a vibrational universe and we are vibrational beings whose cells and organs pulsate at a particular frequency. Our brain pulsates with electromagnetic energy affected by our emotions, our health and our general state of well being.
Our body contracts and pulses at various rates including the contraction of our stomach, our heartbeats and the rhythm of our breathing. Our whole body with each of its cells and organs forms a vibrational frequency, which is unique to us.
And I know “unfortunately” or “fortunately” from experience that when there is DIS-ease, depression or negative behaviour patterns it is because our bodies are “out of tune”.
Are you familiar with the physical concepts of “resonance” and “entrainment”? bear with me. Please read the definitions below in order to get a better understanding of my next point.

Resonance: Resonance is when one vibrating object causes another vibrating object with the same resonant frequency, to vibrate.

Entrainment: the principle of entrainment appears when a more powerful frequency causes a lower powerful frequency to be entrained by the more powerful one.



So to the point… have you ever been in a room where a guitar player has a second guitar sitting on a corner, and as he plays one instrument, the second guitar starts emitting similar sounds? That is resonance.

Our language has these concepts imbedded in it, think of these phrases for example: “I am in tune with a situation”, or “he and I are on the same wave-length”, to mention a few.

Therefore, the vibration we give off is met and reflected back to us, and it is easy to understand that  we cannot solve our problems by using the same kind of thoughts we had when we created them.

But why is this important? Because there is a way in which we can make a shift and raise our vibration to become powerful manifestors. Here is how.

There are specific and EASY things we can do to raise our vibration.  I invite you to watch my FREE Video “Become a powerful creator, 5 untold secrets to manifest the life of your dream.” Simply click here.

Here is a tip: You can tap into the principle of entrainment.Thankfully. Seek people and events that have a high frequency, such as meditation groups, dancing groups, walking in nature activities, and anything you are attracted to that you know has a high healthy vibration.

By the principle of entrainment you will be “pulled” into a higher vibrational frequency, and as you physically move your brain will start to create new habits and new pathways.

Isn’t it grand? Not only can we raise our vibration by actively doing any of my 5 tips to become a powerful creator.



But also by taking over new activities and surrounding yourself with new friends!

Don’t miss out and WATCH NOW this FREE webinar to learn 5 untold secrets to raise your vibration and start co-creating your reality.

Remember that if you are in your comfort zone you are going nowhere, you have got to move into your action zone.

Much love.

Course Correct To Success

In my first job AFTER I came out of university as an Information Systems Analysis graduate, my boss repeatedly used to say “remember where we are coming from, where we are and where we are heading”. This was his moto to guide us into always keeping our path and our goals in mind so we could achieve them without doubt!

In those days I didn’t understand why he was saying that all the time. NOW I DO.

Everybody these days speak about manifesting and about the Law of Attraction. Don’t get me wrong, the Law of Attraction is a powerful, positive and important law, but it is not sufficient in itself to guarantee success.

Let me give you 3 things to bear in mind to stay on track as you embark in a life transformation journey.

  1. Determine your destination: Set clear and specific goals, write them down and make a plan to ensure you take one step at a time to know you are heading in the right direction day after day.
  1. Take the leap: You might have heard me say this often, just like Indiana Jones in the movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, you must take off toward your destination with no guarantee of success. Did you know that from the time they take off ALL airplanes are off course 99% of the time??? 99% of the time! And yet, life is just like an airplane ride and your role, just like the pilot’s role, is to continuously course correct. You must be willing to stay outside of your comfort zone as you stretch yourself into uncharted territory.
  1. Thus our very important third thing to keep in mind: YOU must resolve in advance that you will never give up because you will have to take risks knowing that sometimes you will succeed and others you won’t… but a battle doesn’t make war.  Continuing with the airplane example, just like any aircraft you will face headwind, storm fronts, lightning and unexpected turbulence for sure if you are in pursuit of a worthy goal.

So here is the point, we never have guaranteed success in anything we set ourselves to do but it is your ability to persist in the face of all adversity while heading in the direction of your goals what will ultimately guarantee your success. It is the tenacity and the ability to hold your vision what will pull you through the darkest of nights, which by the way, is the darkest precisely before dawn.

Much love always,
Shine bright!
