Secrets to Successful Makeovers

Do you ever feel like your life needs a make-over or something to reconnect you to your fabulous vibrant, confident, fun-filled self?

When I was married and discovered my husband was leading a double life with another woman – I remember feeling like a blow up doll whose plug got pulled. All life left my body…It was devastating. Heart-breaking. Shocking.

Although the divorce was painful it was even more painful to realize I had lost myself and my fun feminine spirit…I felt so lost. I needed a bridge to a new life – a makeover…and so it began!

My journey was (and still is) amazing – giving me the passion and the reason for my business and mission today – helping women discover their inner sparkle, believe in their magnificence, connect with their fun, sensual, feminine self, and overcome the limiting beliefs that keep them from the loving relationship and life they desire.

There was a point in my makeover that I had a profound realization-it was successful because of all the wonderful guidance, support and inspiration I received and invested in along the way.

You deserve the same opportunity and that’s why I’m opening my calendar today and tomorrow, to be of the best service I can be to you (for FREE). It’s important to me to help other women going through a big life change or wanting to make a leap but not knowing how or where to begin.

We all need help – so if you find yourself feeling stuck, stagnant, or saying to yourself, “something’s gotta give,” click here to book a chat with me, it would be an honor to share what I’ve learned. This conversation will give you the steps you need to create the life you crave:))

To wonderful sparkling new you,

Sparkling love,

4 Tips to Bliss!

Last week I fulfilled one of my bucket list dreams – hiking the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim! Wow what an amazing experience! We started on the North Kaibab Trail at 4am with nothing but our headlamps lighting the way. After a challenging 14 miles downhill we arrived at Phantom Ranch where we caught our breath for a day and had a chance to rest our wobbly and sore muscles! Then we climbed up Bright Angel Trail for 10 miles ( the last 3-4 miles being steep, steep, did I say steeeeeeeeeep, switchbacks!) Oy!!!!!

Whoohooo was I ever elated to reach the top of the south rim!! It was sure a sweet moment and one that will always make my heart smile. But believe you me, reaching this dream wasn’t always easy! There were challenges and times I wanted to quit and that’s what I want to talk to you about today.

YOU most likely have a dream or something really significant that you would love to see happen in your life. And what I learned and want to share with you is this; set yourself up with a highly developed mindset for success. It’s crucial to keep the end result in the forefront of your mind! Staying in a high vibration will help you stay connected to the completion of your dream.

That said, today, we focus on how you can develop mindfulness around your vibrational energy – one of my favorite topics – by making small changes in your daily life.

When you allow your energy to be at a high vibration, you become like that gorgeous diamond in the window at Tiffany: bright, beautiful and absolutely magnetic! Unfortunately, too many of us are walking around day-to-day engaging in behaviors that zap our energy and cause our vibration to plummet – taking us away from our dreams. The good news is that there are plenty of easy ways to get back on track.

Listen to Music

Music IS vibration! And research shows that it has a powerful effect not only on mood but perception, memory, and neuro-plasticity as well. One study from Australiaused music to help brain injury patients remember aspects of their lives that they had forgotten.

You’ll want to be aware of the types of songs you’re drawn to. If you notice you’ve got a playlist full of downers, try putting on something more positive and upbeat.

Eat the Right Foods

Are you eating foods that have a lot of junk in them? I’m not just talking about sugar and unhealthy fats but also toxins and pesticides. You may not know exactly how your food is grown or what went into processing it, but you can discern how it’s affecting you. Listen to your body after each meal. Keep a food journal. If you begin to notice that you feel low energy after eating something, then you’ll know it’s not nurturing to your mind or body. Eliminate it an start choosing foods that make you feel more energized.

Surround Yourself with High Vibrational People

If you surround yourself with people who vibrate negative or angry energy, that will begin to take a toll on you. It may not be possible for you to avoid these people outright – sometimes they’re family members – but you can start to set some boundaries around your interactions and time you spend with them.

An effective tool to use when around negativity is to put yourself in a white bubble of light and say to yourself, “Whatever is directed at me and not of the highest divine essence, bounces off and goes back to love.” Remember what Eleanor Roosevelt said: “All the water in the world can’t drown you unless you let it in.”

Think Good Thoughts

Thoughts that are unkind, punishing, or not compassionate towards yourself can dim your light very easily. One way to counter a negative thought is by imagining a stop sign in your mind. Choose to stop the thought and replace it with a more empowering one. If you’re having a hard time reframing the thought, take three deep breaths: this is known as a “pattern interrupt.”

Remember to love the part of you that’s having the thought. Be a parent to it. You wouldn’t punish your child for feeling bad, so why punish yourself? Be gentle with yourself and mindful of being kind to YOU.

When you focus on raising your vibration, you will automatically begin to tap into your charismatic and confident nature – helping you achieve whatever is on YOUR bucket list! You can do it!!!! I believe in YOU!

Tips to Let Go of What Other People Think about You

Last month, we began looking at charisma, that divine sparkle that makes us irresistible to others and acts as a powerful magnet to attract more love, joy, and fun into our lives! In my last post, Why You Should Stop Comparing Yourself to Others, I explained how comparing yourself can zap your self-confidence and leave you feeling disconnected from your charismatic nature. But comparison isn’t the only trap that gets us.

For many of us, the way we lose the connection to our charisma is by caring way too much about what other people think. When you get caught up in other peoples’ opinions, you abandon yourself and create an imbalance in your soul, making it impossible for your charisma to shine through.

Why Do We Care So Much About What Other People Think?

Tips for Connecting with Your Authentic Charisma

Last month, we explored a variety of ways you can step into your freedom and connect with your inner sparkle. When you’re tapped into that energy, you feel the light of God pouring through you, removing all the sludge that’s accumulated around your inner diamond so that your beautiful light can shine out into the world.

A few weeks ago 10 AWESOME and AMAZING women did just that at Soul Sparkle Retreat (pics above) – it was incredible and awe’ing to see them totally transform in less than 24 hours of their arrival. Intentions were made, fears released, hearts opened and deeply connected friendships born – that’s the power of immersion. I felt like a proud mama as I witnessed these lovely ladies LETTING GO of OLD haunting, hurtful beliefs and EMBRACING their vivacious, unique, feminine Divine essence to SHINE fully!. Simply stunning!

So this month, I want to celebrate that vibrant energy with a series of posts aimed at helping you do what these ladies did, connect with your natural charisma! You have it, it’s inside of you, all you have to do is bring it to the surface and let it shine like the bright August sun!

According to author and spiritual teacher, Marianne Williamson, charisma was initially a religious term meaning, “of the spirit,” or “inspired.” She writes, “Charisma is a sparkle in people that money can’t buy. It’s an invisible energy with visible effects”

Charisma Isn’t Only for Movie Stars

Too many people mistakenly believe that charisma is something only certain people have when actually, we all possess it and can cultivate it by developing a sense of ownership over our unique gifts and talents.

I have a friend who’s in her 70s, and she shines about as bright as any woman possibly could! She has this effusive energy that draws people to her like a magnet. When you’re around her, it feels like she’s been plugged into an electrical socket and is just radiating loving, bright energy in your direction.

By developing your charisma, you are:

  • Allowing your true light to shine through. When this happens, you become expansive and open. You are literally channeling your inner diamond power.
  • Opening yourself up to connect with others. When you allow yourself to be in a connected space with others, smiling and making eye contact, they feel it, and they respond to you! I’ve challenged several of my clients who feel isolated to go out, make eye contact and smile at strangers! Do this, and I promise you’ll feel an immediate mood boost!
  • Revealing your sparkling soul. When you give yourself permission to show up and freely express your unique magnificence, a lot of amazing things begin to happen! People around you have clarity about who you are and can see the purity of your soul and spirit. That openness and beauty bring out the best in them, inspiring a connection, and creating a ripple effect!

Reconnecting to Your Charisma

There are so many ways that we lose the connection to our soul essence. In my next post, we’ll explore how comparing yourself to others can cause you to lose touch with the charismatic energy that you were born to express.

Until then, the best way to begin reconnecting with your charisma is through meditation or prayer. Get silent, breathe and call to a Higher power. To assist with this, I invite you to download my free fifteen-minute Diamond Power meditation, which will guide you to a peaceful state and help you align with your beautiful soulful essence.

Free Yourself by Becoming More Accepting of Others

This month, we’ve been celebrating independence with a series of posts aimed at helping you free yourself from limiting thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors so that you can move forward with clarity while inviting more love, joy, and fun into your life. I know this might sound counterintuitive, but one of the best ways you can create and nurture a sense of freedom for yourself, is by learning how to accept others exactly as they are.

Loosen Your Grip

It’s very common to want our loved ones, kids, friends, siblings even strangers to say things or behave in ways that we find acceptable and pleasing. However, having those expectations often sets us up for disappointment. If you think about it, what we are saying with this expectancy is, “you have to act this way in order for me to feel ok”. No wonder many of us are upset and frustrated much of the time – with this belief we give our power away, reliant on others to create our state of being. What an emotional roller coaster!

Free Yourself with Personal Boundaries

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, then you know I often talk about the importance of setting boundaries with other people. But it’s equally as important to set boundaries with yourself. Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Sherri, this whole month is about declaring my independence! Why are you talking about boundaries?” While boundaries might sound rigid, creating them is an essential first step towards setting yourself free!

Setting Boundaries Around Your Thoughts

One summer morning, I went out early, and I saw a woman walking her dog. It was a big dog, but you could tell he was still a puppy, and he was going nuts! First, there was a bird he wanted to chase, then it was a squirrel, then a gardener revved up his lawnmower, and the dog tried to dart across the street. Every time he tried to run off, his owner tugged on his collar, sometimes gently, sometimes with a little more force.

I looked at that dog, and thought, “This is how we are with our thoughts.” They take our attention here, there and everywhere. They zap our energy, hold us captive and keep us from becoming our glorious, sparkling selves. We have to rein them in just as that woman did with her dog.

Setting Boundaries Around Your Emotions

We all go through periods of depression, sadness or discomfort but we want to be careful not to wallow in these emotions. It is important though to acknowledge your feelings. Pretending that a difficult experience didn’t happen isn’t any healthier than refusing to move on from it. Allow yourself the time to process and heal, but decide that after a specific amount of time, you’re going to put the experience behind you and move forward.

Setting Boundaries Around Your Physical Movement

Creating healthy boundaries around physical movement is especially important for anyone who sits at a desk all day long. Set the alarm on your phone to remind you when it’s time to get up and stretch or drink a glass of water. Put on your favorite music and dance for two minutes or do an easy cross crawl, where you touch opposite hand to opposite knee while marching in place. Any of these activities will bring fresh oxygen to your brain, allowing you to work more efficiently and have better, more creative ideas.

Setting Boundaries Around Your Behavior in Relationships

I have a friend who recently admitted to me that she’s been stalking her boyfriend online. When I asked her why she was doing this, she told me, “If he’s doing things behind my back, I want to know so that I don’t end up getting hurt.”

This type of behavior is extremely common, and it isn’t just a problem in romantic relationships. Maybe you feel like someone at work is out to get you or can’t be trusted. If you go looking for evidence that supports those beliefs, chances are good you’re going to find it and end up making assumptions that have no truth to them at all. Free yourself from the need to confirm your worst fears and trust that God will show you whatever you are meant to know at the perfect time.

Did this post ring true to you? If so, leave a comment below and let me know what steps your taking to set healthy boundaries with yourself. Let your boundaries set you free!!!!!

Find Your Freedom With These Tips

With July 4th right around the corner, now is the perfect time to focus on manifesting a sense of freedom in your daily life. This month’s posts will be all about helping you shake free of the thoughts, beliefs, and actions that have been holding you back from achieving your dreams, so you can declare your independence, step into your diamond power and have a sparkling good time this summer and throughout the year!

Declare to Have More Fun

One of the most common complaints I hear from women is that they don’t have fun anymore. I was talking to a client who’s attending my upcoming retreat, and I mentioned to her that we’d be doing some belly dancing to connect and liberate our feminine essence (any form of dancing is a quick, easy way to get out of our heads and into our bodies and have fun!). She commented she wasn’t much for dancing and while she didn’t say much more than that, I was pretty sure I knew why.

Top Tip to Break Out of Your Rut

One of the reasons I love this season is because there is no shortage of opportunities to get out and have some fun. However, so many of us are stuck in the same old routine, hitting the same beaches, staying at the same hotels, and attending the same annual holiday BBQs. There’s nothing wrong with tradition – if that tradition brings you joy – but why not make this the “Summer of New Sparkling Adventures” by trying something you’ve never done before?!

Break Out of Your Summer Rut

I have a client who came to one of my workshops last summer. At the age of 50 that trip marked the first time she’d ever gotten onto a plane by herself! She’d come from a big family, married young, had kids and had never thought of going away without them. She confided that while she’d always wanted to do something for herself, she felt selfish even considering it.

A lot of women think it’s selfish to do something they want to do. They think, “I shouldn’t spend the money,” or they worry about what their families will think if they take off alone.

The truth is this: if you’re feeling a longing, an urge to do or experience something that would bring expansion, that’s God communicating to you. Telling you there’s more to life for you to experience – it’s like His personal whisper to grow, grow, GROW. When we ignore that signal, we deny ourselves the opportunity to live into our greatest potential and joy. We stop ourselves from standing more fully in our unique essence and diamond power.

New Experiences Are Always Positive

Most of us are afraid of trying new things because we worry that the experience will be a disaster, but know this, even if things go badly, you can still be proud of yourself for having the courage to do something different. Why that’s important for you to know is that any step you take outside your comfort zone builds confidence and will make you less wary of trying something new in the future.

When you open yourself to diverse experiences, you inevitably learn new things about yourself. Maybe you’ll discover that you’re not as shy as you thought you were or more adventurous or less afraid of the unknown. When you take the risk to add some variety to your life, you uncover so many beautiful flavors of your personality that lay dormant when you’re playing it safe.

For my client who had never traveled alone, attending that workshop helped her get in touch with a dream she didn’t even know she had. She was in a career that she liked but wasn’t as fulfilling as she wanted. Over the course of the weekend, she discovered that she wanted to become a coach. This was a desire that had been buried but came to the surface the more she opened up and got to know herself.

Seize the Day

Trying new things can feel very scary, especially if you’ve spent years trapped in a routine. But if you’re committed to changing your life and stepping into the best version of yourself, there’s no time to waste! Start believing that you deserve to do things; make the commitment and get out there!

What’s on your joie de vivre list? Something you dream of doing….someday…? Leave a comment below and let me know the steps you’re taking to make it happen! I can’t wait to hear!!

Open Yourself Up to Positive Criticism

This month, we’re celebrating summer with a series of posts aimed at getting you ready to reveal your gorgeous selves to the whole wide world. I’m not just talking about how to feel good in a bikini—although for some of us, getting there is a major win! I’m talking about developing the confidence to reveal your true diamond essence so that you can live a life that sparkles with love and joy.

I know all of you out there want to live that life, and you’re certainly all deserving of it but you may not know how to get there. Here’s the thing, getting there starts with having an awareness of what’s blocking you. Most of my clients come to me because something in their life went askew and they need help figuring that out and getting a plan for how to move forward. Don’t feel bad if you haven’t figured it out on your own – to quote Les Brown, “It’s hard to see the picture when you are the one in the frame.”

Often, we’re stymied by a belief that isn’t true, a fear we’ve picked up in childhood or a protective mechanism that’s no longer serving us.

The trouble with these very common issues is that they’re often lurking just beneath our conscious awareness, driving us to behave in ways that can negatively affect our relationships and keep us from moving forward. Here’s the good news: overcoming these obstacles is simple when you are open and willing to give up the lone ranger syndrome and ask for a little help.
