With Instagram and Facebook being down for that full day, it made me realize how important it is that I keep growing my email list and you should too! We own our email list, no one else, so if anything happens to our FB groups or following on social media, we still have OUR list! A great way to get started is choose the best platform for you. I use Mailerlite, but MailChimp is also great and they’re both user friendly. I am not very tech savvy, but YouTube helped with everything I didn’t know! Mailerlite has really simple YouTube tutorials to learn how to do everything!
Once you’ve chosen your platform, think of a great giveaway! When you signed up for this newsletter, you may have received a Tools For Your Chakras guide as a bonus for signing up. It is always a good thing to offer some value with the sign up. This can all be done automatically on either platform, so you can use your energy to promote and grow your email list. Once you start getting sign ups, be sure to communicate with your subscribers at least once a month. As you may have noticed, I like to send mine out once a month, because I feel like there are so many sites that send out too many emails and I hope that when you see mine, you are inclined to read it more, because you don’t hear from me every week and I do my best to give you some awesome tips and tricks on growing your business or up leveling your life.
To grow your email list, don’t be shy to promote it often! It may seem like overkill to you, but if you are promoting in other places other than a FB group, your posts or stories are only seen by a small percentage of your followers, so be sure to promote this weekly, if not more! The Queen of building email lists is Jenna Kutcher of the Goal Digger podcast, check out episode 325: Everything You Need To Start Your Email List Now. If you are already well on your way to growing your email list, then check out episode 474: The Top 5 Free Strategies To Grow Your Traffic Organically.
I hope this was helpful and cheers to a BIG email list!
The word “sell” has got to be the scariest word for entrepreneurs, we always hear, “but I don’t want to be salesy” when we’re trying to figure out how to do business and I think it’s time we take that word back! There is no reason to be “salesy” any longer. The old way of selling, like cold calling or what is called “hard selling”, is not what you should be doing. I think we are in a better time for selling because it is more authentic and in service. Every time I want to “sell” something, I think about how it will serve them. When we talk about what we do or sell in a way that is going to help them, it takes the pressure off of you and them. You also need to be confident that you have amazing products or a service that can help them. If selling scares you, it is time to change that mindset and to stop thinking of it in that way, always think about serving instead.
Being genuine, getting to know someone and serving (yes, I repeat, serving) is the way to get a positive response. Be sure to also be in alignment with who you want to serve, create your niche market and learn how to speak to them. This helps you become more authentic. Think of this sentence when you need to approach someone: ” I do_______ and this could help you with ________, would you like to learn more?”

This was a gamechanger for me. Being in total alignment with what I wanted to do has created more impact and success than I ever knew was possible. I have been in pure momentum for months now and this is when the law of attraction starts working it’s magic also! When I first started in business, I thought it would be nice to make a little money on the side so I didn’t really give much thought to what I was doing, I just liked a product line and wanted to tell others about it because it worked so well for me. But then, I realized what business ownership could look like for my family and I. I saw a life of flexibility, giving back to others and traveling! Ever since I was young I wanted to be rich so I could give away my money!
The most difficult part for me was figuring out how I could use this specific business for that and long story short…it just wasn’t the business for me. I started thinking about what I always wanted to do and that was help empower women to take care of themselves and their families, so I started looking for something else to fill that need. As I was working on myself I saw a Reiki Master who also did Tapping to help me clear some blocks and work on my confidence. I realized that this would be the avenue I could use to help others. I also aligned myself with a new company that is incredibly philanthropic and ALL about serving others. I needed to find things that were about who I am at my core. What is your burning desire to do in this world? Are you having trouble connecting with what you’re doing? These are important questions to ask yourself to make sure you are in alignment with your purpose.
As I answered these questions myself, I saw that my favorite thing about being a part of this new company was being a mentor and business coach to my team and that’s when I realized it was what I needed to pursue. I took a course to help me and worked with a coach who gave me clarity and the confidence to create my program and to use my strengths and passions within the program. And that’s exactly what I did! When I started speaking to my “people”, I attracted 2 new business partners in 1 month plus my first coaching client around the same time, it was so exciting and now I get to help all of them create the same momentum. So, don’t give up, keep going if you are aligned with what you’re doing. If it feels too hard, go back to those questions above and see if this is TRULY YOU.
For a very long time I was very much into the masculine energy, except I didn’t know it. It wasn’t until I became a Reiki Practitioner that I even knew about the difference between feminine and masculine energy. To give you an idea of what each are, here is a list: Masculine harnesses boundaries, being in action, confidence, honesty, accountability, integrity, non-judgmental and security. The Feminine encompasses, boundaries also, your intuition, grounding, empathy, being supportive, authenticity, magnetic, open, trusting, creative and reflective.
The one I was in the most was being in action, I grew up in a male entrepreneurial home and it was all about working hard, going non-stop because hard work equaled success. Now those are very important traits, but I was running myself into the ground! I was missing out on quality time with my kids and husband because I felt I HAD to work constantly to get where I wanted to go. The ironic thing is when I started realizing my feminine energy and what it could do for me, was when I started seeing more success! I was also being forced to rest more because my body was starting to respond to stress by getting me sick! So, I knew I had to listen and make these necessary actions.
Knowing more about the feminine and masculine energy traits, take time to reflect on what you harness more of and then I want you to pick the top 3 traits from each and start focusing on those. It’s time to bring some balance if you don’t have it yet and I’m telling you, it will change your outlook and your life for the better. This is also going to help you with the flow in your business because when we feel more aligned with what we’re doing the easier it is.
I hope this information was helpful and in what ever you do, you seek out both!
I used to think affirmations and personal development in general was a waste of my time. I had no idea the importance or the link between success and mindset. It is so true, what we think about we bring about, whether that is coming from our conscious or sub-conscious, we need to learn how to repair any damage that has been done. We have to make sure we are feeding ourselves information that is going to help us not harm us, especially when it comes to our sub-conscious mind, this is what attracts those thoughts to us. Haven’t dealt with a trauma and keep attracting similar situations? Do you notice you always think about how difficult something is, like how earning money is so hard and you keep getting the hard? It’s because you are essentially asking for it and the Universe/God is listening. So what can we do? If it is something very serious or traumatic, you should speak to a professional so you can work on those things properly, this could be someone like myself who can help by using Reiki and EFT or it can be psychologist or psychotherapist. Who ever and how ever you feel most comfortable, do it!
For a lot of us, we just have these signals from childhood, like always hearing “money doesn’t grow on trees” which then gives us a scarcity mindset around money for example or other sayings like that that were drilled into our sub-conscious. These are the things that we can do some work around to change that type of mindset and affirmations is a great place to start! If you know how to tap, do that while you’re saying them, it is very powerful! Here are some examples of money mindset affirmations:
There will always be enough money
Money is infinite, if I need more, it will come
I am worthy of making a lot of money
My experiences and education allow me to make lots of money
I am smart
I am beautiful just the way I am
I am capable
I am a strong leader
Now you may be wondering what those last few have to do with money blocks, but not feeling worthy or good enough also tells us we’re not good enough to be financially successful, so we need to get through those too.
I truly hope that these are helpful and I wish you all the success you deserve!
This has got to be the number one reason we fail in business and it also happens to be a big problem for women in particular. Blocks with money and having the confidence to show up proudly as an entrepreneur can definitely be an issue! So here are some tips for you to get passed them.
– keep up with personal development, start with something easy like You Are A Badass. It’s light, funny and will make you enjoy reading these books
– Get connected with someone in your industry who can help AND cheer you on
– Start taking baby steps to get out of your comfort zone. When you do this you will find that you can do hard things and it will grow your confidence.
– Use your oils! There are some great oils to help you feel worthy. Try Bergamot!
– Learn how to tap! Also known as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).

I am really excited about some changes I have made to my business! With everything that I have learned about running businesses and growing my social media, I know that I can help other healers in growing their business as well. After being a mentor to others, it has given me the confidence to move forward with this more publicly. I love teaching and I love leading others to greatness, so here we are! Going forward my blog posts will be about growing your business, so even if you’re not a healer this will also be beneficial for you. I have seen and heard the struggle from practitioners during this time when businesses have had to move online and I have not had that problem. My business has grown and thrived because I have always had multiple ways of earning an income. My husband and I have come to realize how important it has been for us to have many streams of income and I am sure I am not alone in this! Being able to pivot online quickly has been crucial to not only sustaining my business, but growing it and having the most successful year yet! If you haven’t had that kind of year, think about what you can do to make the changes needed. Can you do what you do online? Do you know how to grow your social media following? Do you have products AND services you can offer? If you don’t have these in place yet, now is the time. Even when things open up more, having an online presence can bring about more flexibility than you have ever had! Imagine being able to work from anywhere? This is what entices me to stay this course, because I am REALLY looking forward to traveling again! If you need help or have any questions about how you can move online, feel free to reach out. Here is to all of our successes!!!
In health and wealth, Amy
So 2020 has come to close and although it was a difficult year for so many, let’s face it, it also brought us some clarity with so many things! Although 2021 won’t be perfect, we can certainly make it our own. You are perfect the way you are and if there are changes you need to make, it’s because you’ve decided that they’re good for you. I feel like there are so many great social media accounts out there helping women feel better about themselves so if you’re not feeling great about what you’re seeing, then unfollow and look for more accounts aligned with YOU.
I participated in an incredible energy clearing, online, using essential oils, it was very impactful and gave me the best sleep! Here are some immediate tips I can pass along that you can use right away.
- Take the time to take a few deep breathes
- Apply tea tree oil on the top of your head and in your elbow creases, this helps to clear the “noise”
- A great blend to use that can help with manifesting is: 5 drops each of Marjoram, Green Mandarin and Cardamom in a 5 ml roller bottle and then fill the rest with fractionated coconut oil, apply this to the inside of your wrist creases and heart.
This is such a great way for you give yourself some care and focus for the day! I wish you all health and wealth for 2021.
Your truly, Amy
I feel like we’ve all been waiting for this year to end! But I really want you to take this moment to think about what really happened this year. I see 2020 as 20/20. Who here has had more clarity? Or maybe you’ve realized what’s REALLY important. Or maybe it was just really tough and you’re looking forward to a fresh start. Either way, working on our mind is going to take us through the rest of 2020 to bring in a stronger better you in 2021. You may have heard this from me before, but if you aren’t incorporating personal development you MUST. I was so resistant to it for years and when I started reading and expanding my mind, that is what has grown my business and has given me the tools to really reflect on me. This has helped me with business, but this has also helped me in my relationships. When we have our mind right this will attract more flow and ease into your life. I’m not saying it’s easy, it has taken me years to get where I am now and I am still working on myself, but it has been worth the time and effort. If you’re not sure where to start, reach out and let me know where you’re at so I can get you to your next step in this process. We all need a little help sometimes and that’s what I’m here for! I have some great and free resources that I would love to pass onto you!
I truly wish you an amazing holiday season and all the best for 2021!! May it be full of love and laughter!
Yours in health & wealth, Amy
Not only is this time of year normally busy and stressful, but I feel like this year is a whole new ball game! Keeping our stress levels down is very important as stress can lead to so many issues, mentally and physically. Emotional issues end up physically effecting us, whether that is unhealthy weight gain, heart issues or physical pain like tension headaches. Looking for some suggestions to keep your stress away? Read on then!
To help with tension pain Peppermint essential oil is very effective and can help relieve headaches if you end up getting one. But to keep your stress levels down, diffusing essential oils is a great way to help you! Here are some of my favorite calming diffuser blends:
1. 2 drops Black Spruce and 1 drop Cinnamon Bark
2. 2 drops Wild Orange and 2 drops of Lavender
3. 2 drops of Tangerine and 2 drops of Juniper Berry
Some other efforts I make is to exercise regularly, get a good night sleep and add adaptogens into my diet. To help me sleep I take a restful supplement and also find taking 2 drops of Vetiver internally helps so much, it really calms my mind and allows me to fall asleep quicker.
Here is a great link to learn more about adaptogens, how they work and suggestions as to what you can take to get them into your system.
I hope you can use these tips to keep the stress away this holiday season and going forward! If you need help getting started with essential oils, click on my contact page and I will be in touch!
Stay healthy and happy! Amy
