Magic is afoot at The School of Wild Authenticity

Sep 26, 2020

{This is a long one. If you just want the bullet points, you can skip to the end!}

Every year in September, I go deep into a cave of pondering, thinking, and assessing.

I feel into who I've been and how I've changed. I look at my business, and I feel deeply into what is wanted now.

I ask: If I could begin today, knowing everything I know now, what would I do?

I reinvent, recreate, and repurpose.

When I'm ready, I come up out of that space to tell you about it, and today is that day!!!

(Before you read on, I want you to know this is one of those letters where you might decide to leave my community, because it turns out my new work isn't right for you. That's totally cool. I've loved our time together, and I wish you all the best. xoxo

BUT, you might also decide to draw closer in, because it turns out what I'm doing is EXACTLY what you need. If that's you, then send me a message and tell me everything! I want to know, for real. xoxo)


Here is what I now know for sure...

My absolute favorite kind of writing is this blog! I love writing short inspirational pieces that are meant to help you heal, that are meant to impact your lives, and that are meant to encourage you to be your wildly authentic self.

I love writing short pieces where I can go from idea, to edit, to publish in just a few hours.

I love writing letters that help me connect deeply and meaningfully to you, while riding the waves of the particular and the universal aspects of life.

I love having a daily practice where I turn into a magic wand to channel intuitive truths and wisdom, and it feels like it isn't even me writing anymore - it's some greater thing out there.

In short, inspirational blogs are my jam.

AND, it has been one hell of a journey to get here. When I started blogging, I had crippling self-doubt, a million worries about what everyone would think of me, and a nightmarish terror of hitting publish on my own words.

However, I also had a deep desire to do this. I love writing, and ever since blogs became a thing I had a yearning to write one.

Not writing an inspirational blog made me feel lost. I felt like I had no purpose. I had existential crises day after day wondering who I was and what I was meant to do. Most of all, not writing a blog made me feel a deep boredom and apathy that hurt like hell.

The pain of not writing finally got to be so much that I became willing to face my  fears and go on a healing journey to find the confidence to hit publish on my first post.

That was six years ago, and since then I have written hundreds of posts on blogs, newsletters, and social media sites, and I've even started a podcast where we read inspirational books that now has 19 episodes!!!


As I was doing my reassessment this month, I realized my love of writing inspirational blogs was the key.

As a writing coach, I want to help women who want to write inspirational blogs, but who have trouble getting started because they are overwhelmed by self-doubt.

Is this you? If so, here are a few things I believe.

This writing you want to do - it is the real deal. 

You have powerful gifts.

You have a healing voice.

You have writing magic.

I believe the world needs your realness, because your writing could change the course of someone's day or even their life.

Your people need your voice. They need to hear from you, so they can experience your intuitive, impactful, and healing words.

And, guess what, they need you NOW. The world of 2020 NEEDS your voice.

But if you're anything like me, then your writing is going to be deep work. It calls you to not only help others but to also heal the wounds that hold you back from sharing your wildly authentic self with your people.

Your writing will reveal your deepest limiting beliefs and call you to dissolve them.

Posting online will bring up the heavy-handed voice of your inner critic, and call you to lovingly heal it.

Writing what you know to be true will feel like serving your heart on a platter, and it will call you to create boundaries, recover from people-pleasing, and learn true self-love.

This work is deep, and I am here to help.


I've been asking myself what worked for me when I started. For real, what was the key to my hitting publish?

And then it hit me. I joined a community of like-minded women, whose purpose was to help each other do our soul's calling by constantly reminding each other of our unique gifts. It turns out that focusing on your gifts is the antidote to self-doubt.

This is what I want to help you do. I want to help you claim your gifts, own your voice, and see your magic.

Focusing on self-doubt drains your creative energy. It makes you feel heavy, like you can't possibly put your fingers to the keyboard. It makes you want to numb out, doing anything that will make the pain go away, except facing your fears and doing your creative work. 

Focusing on your gifts drives and energizes you to finally get started. When you feel the truth of your gifts you wonder how you could possibly not write. When you own your voice, all you want to do is put fingers to the keyboard. When you see your magic, you turn towards your creativity instead of away from it, because you know you have something special to offer.

{Side note: If you're reading this and worrying that thinking good things about yourself will turn you into an arrogant jackass, I have a feeling you don't need to worry about that. My hunch is you focus so much on the negative that this work will help you come into balance. It will help you have  appropriate self-esteem, the kind that feels clean and good and helps you finally feel ok to be your authentic self.}


So now you must be wondering how I'm going to help you do that!

Starting today, I have opened the doors to The Confidence Booster Pack. This is a magical PDF download I create just for you with oracle card readings, intuitive messages, and writing exercises to help you:

Claim Your Gifts! Your gifts are what you offer that will make a real difference in the lives of your readers.

Own Your Voice! Your voice is the powerful frequency you tune into to help your readers receive your gifts.

See Your Magic! Your magic is the extra sparkle that keeps your readers coming back to your blog again and again.

Your Confidence Booster Pack will be a dash of archetypal wisdom, a heap of intuition, and a sprinkle of energy work to help you take the leap and start writing your inspirational blog.

Your people need your voice, and I want to help you bring it to them.

When I create your Confidence Booster Pack, I'll tune into my intuition and ask to see your gifts, your voice, and your magic. I'll pull oracle cards just for you, and they will bring intuitive images to my mind and wisdom messages to my heart. I'll meditate on all of this, feel the vibration of what's going on beneath the surface, and then I'll translate all of it into the words and images that will become your pack!

Your Confidence Booster Pack will  help you focus on the unique talents you bring to the table, the ones your people need and the ones you already have.  

The best part is these talents are innate to who you are. You won't need to take any extra training to help you get them, you just need to see them clearly so you can use them with purpose and intention to help your people.


I'm doing this work because I know for you, not writing is the worst.

Not writing makes you feel lost and anxious, like you have no purpose. For women like us, this is a truly painful state of being.

I am here to help you, because I want you to experience the joy of writing an inspirational blog. Yes, it's scary. Yes, we'll work on creating boundaries with mean internet trolls, employers, or family members. Yes, this work takes courage, AND it is so, so worth it.

When you write, you'll get to feel like you. You'll feel like you're doing your purpose. You'll know who you are and what you're all about.

When you write to inspire others you'll feel like a healer warrior doing what you came here to do.

Let's get started today.
