Just 3.5 yrs ago I was struggling with less than $2 in my bank account. It was summertime and I was trying to figure out how I would stretch that $1.36 for the next 10 days while keeping my kids busy with summer fun activities. I was too embarrassed to tell my family or ask for help so I silently suffered this shame and fear. I was so riddled with pride and shame that I could have never have even accepted their support.

ThailandFast forward to a few weeks ago when I took my children to Thailand. Yes, THAILAND!!!

It came together so effortlessly.


A couple of years ago one of my best friends for over 30 yrs said in passing, “My brother is building a house in Thailand, when his home is finished, we should go”. I said “sounds good”. I didn’t think much of it. It was partly an empty commitment on my part of agreeing to the fantastical and partly a little ‘let’s see’ challenge and dance with the Universe.

Causally, it comes up again that we should book our flights soon. And, should we be taking our kids? Every logical thought in my head is ‘no’. Too far, too expensive, perhaps I should just go with my friend and my kids can spend Christmas with their dad. But, while I may think logically, I don’t make my decisions that way. I get a very distinct feeling (confirmed by the swing in my pendulum) that I am supposed to take the kids. It’s so illogical. And so expensive. But, once I know that is what I am supposed to do, resistance is futile.

I don’t pay any attention to the details or the booking. My friend does all of that as I’m fully absorbed in preparing and marketing for my sold out speaking tour. Then, I get some unexpected shooting shards of pain move across the left side of my face and I realize that my ‘go-go-go’ way has re-activated my trigeminal neuralgia. Ouch!

I ask my body “What do you want?”Move In Truth-compressed

I hear “Rest”.

I look at my schedule and know for the next 21 days I will be on full-steam ahead. And I also know that if I do go like gangbusters and do my speaking tour knowing that my body is requesting and requiring rest, I will be diametrically opposed to the message that I teach.


“Once you know the truth, you must move in accordance with it…. or life begins to get difficult”

I reluctantly contemplate the idea of cancelling and immediately my body feels light. I now know that this is the right decision. I need to cancel my sold out events. Damn.

It’s crazy and ridiculous… after all, the hard work is not the speaking part, it’s getting an event up and going… so why the heck would I cancel sold out events now when it’s easy??

But I know I have to. Because it is the truth for me.

My body has asked me to.

I’m not happy with this ‘truth’ because I WANT to do these events, but…

I have surrendered to living my life in accordance to walking in step with the truth as I know it…. even if parts of me don’t like it.

My client asked me “Wasn’t the revenue gained from the speaking tour going to be your money to fund Thailand?” I said “Yes. But I’m listening despite all logic and if I am going to go, God has a thousand ways to give me that money.”

Five minutes – yes, five minutes later – I receive a phone call and the exact money for the airline tickets is offered to me as a gift. The exact amount!!

Whaaaat?

Yes. It works just like that.

And do you know what I did this time? I accepted it.

3.5 years ago I couldn’t even receive grocery money to help my kids. My receiving channels were so collapsed.

But now, I understand that God’s got a thousand ways to give to me and my receiving channels are open. After all, who am I to turn away God’s gifts?

I KNOW that if I act in accordance to my truth, if I am integral to myself (despite my own wishes and hopes for things to be different) things ALWAYS come together.

7 Steps To Move in Accordance With Your Truth :

1) Listen (to the whispers)
2) Trust (the message)
3) Act (in accordance)
4) Breathe (deeply)
5) Observe (what occurs)
6) Receive (joyously)
7) Smile (and don’t stop)

Rinse and Repeat 😉
