Dealing with toxic people

toxic people Dec 02, 2021

"It's like talking to a brick wall..."


We have all used the phrase. We have all felt the disappointment when trying to talk to someone about something they just don't quite get. 


We use a lot of our time coming up with the things we want to say. We go over the sentences over and over again in our mind making sure that everything is precise and honest. We live in anxiety until we finally build up the courage to speak to the person.


We say our carefully constructed words with kindness and empathy,

We feel our hearts racing,

Hands shaking,

and ego's trying to pull us back from speaking our truth.


After it's done, after the words are spoken, we expect a light bulb go off. A sign. Anything to let us know that our words were heard, our feelings are justified, and our hurt is something that can be healed.


And yet... we get no such sign.


You see in the eyes of the person you approached that not one ounce of your truth was processed.


There is not one sign that indicates...

**Please note that if you don’t have these specific crystals you can use any others you have as long as they represent the same color.**

 

As you place each crystal in turn, it is important to picture light and energy radiating out from it into the Chakra for at least 2-3 minutes before going on to the next Crystal. Be aware that the Chakra is being cleansed and it is spin regulated.


 

Steps:

Lie down comfortably.

Place the Smokey Quartz between & slightly below your feet on your...

The MomBoss Series | Volume One

Uncategorized Nov 29, 2021

This morning I woke up at 5am.

I did a 20 minute meditation.

And began my daily journaling practice. 

By 6:15, my boys started to make their way out into the world.

I fed them air fried french toast sticks only to find 3 out of the 4 sticks I made for my youngest still sitting on his plate because "I got the wrong kind and they were too cinnaminnie"

Helped them get ready for school only to find my entire bathroom sink filled with a rainbow of different color toothpastes.

Spent 30 minutes searching for long pants for my oldest because he thinks that wearing a t-shirt and shorts 2 days before December in New England is a totally appropriate outfit to wear.

Let my first dog out twice because she had to make her presence known to a local neighborhood squirrel that she clearly doesn't like.

Looked around my house to see the unorganized chaos that takes a toll on my mental and emotional wellbeing. 

Found out that my less than year old washer is not draining properly so I now...

The Author Series | Volume One

Yesterday I was a stress ball as I began to prep for my upcoming launch.

Today I received an email that got quickly took me out of the downward spiral that is being an entrepreneur and a coach in a oversaturated market and coming back to a place and a belief of WHY I'm doing all of this in the first place.

The email was from my publisher. They had just finished my manuscript evaluation. The formal evaluation later stated:

This is written extremely well, clean in concept and presentation. Erica could have been a professional writer, except her stories are going to need strong proofing. But that aside, her writing is very solid, very narrative, and unfortunately, if she wants the woman over 50 market, way too many 'fucks' for that audience. There is an excellent lead in to each chapter, then explanations, then exercises... very nicely done. Everything in each chapter ties nicely. Easy to read and you can count on the expertise of the writer as she makes it clear she has some. Not too...

ENTREPRENEUR SERIES: The Mindset

It is 8:56pm on a Friday evening.

I'm sitting in bed drinking chocolate milk still unable to make myself close my laptop, put on some binge worthy show on tv, and veg out after a long week.

 

I've decided that my in this blog, I'm going to throw away the already very small filter I have and just share the raw fucking truth. The stuff behind the scenes that the coaches and online content creators don't share with you on their insta stories or beautiful instagram feeds. 

 

I'm going to vent. 

I'm going to share my journey. 

I'm going to talk about whatever the hell I want to talk about in that moment. 

 

And at this moment, at 9:05pm on Friday evening, I want to talk about the shit you don't see.. The hours, the love, the hair pulling, the failures, the carefully soul inspired programs and launches that are epic failures...

 

As I was doing work on my computer, I always have on something in the background. Most of the time it's subliminals but...

Top 3 reasons why I retired from Psychic & Mediumship Readings

Uncategorized Nov 28, 2021

This blog post has been in the back of my mind for awhile. Like always, I went back and forth with the idea of writing this. I know for myself, I roll my eyes when a content creator uses polarity in their headline to get people to listen to a podcast, or read a blog, and then once you consume the information, you end up rolling your eyes and wasting your time because they give you surface level bullshit.

 

Well, I'm happy to report that I don't stay at the surface level. 

 

I'm not going to sugarcoat.

I'm not going to say "I was called to by a higher source.."

Nah.. Not for me. 

I'm going to tell you MY truth. 

 

Here are the reasons why I retired from doing Psychic & Mediumship readings.


1) THE SPIRITUAL READER COMMUNITY IS A SHIT SHOW.

In the past four years of offering readings both in person for a hot minute and online, I have come across more unethical, unprofessional readers than good ones. I have seen people use polarity, fear, and deceased...

Scenic Look-Outs

entrepenuer Nov 26, 2021

There is this look out point off of i95 on the way towards Rhode Island that I have driven past for nearly 30 years. I never actually stopped but it’s a beautiful section of land that overlooks the water and is near the beautiful town of Mystic Conn.

 

I never got off the highway to actually witness the scenery but every single time I drove past it I had the thought “I should check that out one day.”

 

Yet… I never do.

Most likely because by the time I reached this lookout, I am always so close to my destination I didn’t see the point of it.

 

There has to be hundreds, if not thousands of scenic overlooks around the United States. We know of them, we live near them, we drive past them, and yet we never actually take the time to pull off the road, even if it is just for 5 minutes, to appreciate the view. To pause. To breathe. To appreciate the journey thus far.

 

One of the biggest obstacles as a human for me is remembering the...

YOU ARE THE BRAND.

Back in January of 2021, my Instagram got deactivated. For months, I was battling online scam artists taking my photos, creating fake accounts, and messaging my followers telling them they were “drawn to them” and scamming them out of their hard earned money. If you are interested in learning more about this shit show, head on over to this blog post.

 

Now, let me get back to my story.. After my account deactivated, and after weeks of trying to reach out to Instagram in hopes they will be able to reinstate my account, I decided to give up and just start a brand new account from scratch.

 

 

During the past 11 months of having this new account, I changed my Instagram handle a handful of times. Trying on new names or branding to see if anything would fit. Nothing ever did. Nothing was ever a ‘HELL YES!’ for me. The whole idea and figuring out my brand, my online identity, was never an enjoyable experience to me. I tried so hard to make it work...

Crystals for the Chakras

What Crystals Are Best for the Seven Chakras: Here is All You Need to Know!

The concept of chakras originated from ancient beliefs saying that chakras are basically energy centres in our bodies, with each one marking a specific organ, and so they need to be in proper equilibrium and unblocked all the time for a person's peace and wellbeing. There are also many techniques to balance the chakras, among which the most common and beneficial one is the use of gemstones or crystals.
