Wise, brave words. Just a few of them can change your perspective and your life. Well, feast your eyes and soul on the series of life-changing words here today.

The Brave Healer Blog Party is a tradition now. I hold this event at the finish of each Intuitive Writing and Speaking for Healers class I run, to showcase the incredibly talented coaches and practitioners who join me on the journey to finding and sharing our authentic voices in a bigger way. The theme this time around was uncertainty.

These men and women step up every single time. They step up to the plate of courage, authenticity, and writing badassery, and they blow me away with their trail-blazing determination and commitment to helping the world thrive. A world that needs them more than ever this year. And tackling uncertainty felt like a fitting theme. …

I self-published my first book with Balboa Press in 2012.

I didn’t know much about books, or publishing back then.

The bright light of Hay House blinded me and I read that little fine print line on the Balboa sales page that said, “If you publish with us, Hay House may just give you a lookie-loo.”

I hung onto that hope. For a long time.

I had no idea what kind of platform I needed for a traditional publisher like Hay House to truly take a lookie-loo at me or my book.

I had nowhere near the numbers I needed.

When I paid a few bucks and showed up in New York to the Hay House Writer’s Conference, I was excited. …

Back on March 24th the Brave Healer Blog Party began and 15 women wrote their hearts out about a moment with courage.

15 women, in the middle of the weirdest crisis this world has ever seen, stepped up and shared their stories to inspire others.

These aren’t COVID stories.

These are stories of my badass healer friends and how they’ve dealt with fear, in all the ways, throughout their lives. And how they continue to use the knowledge, wisdom and skills they’ve learned to help others on this journey.

They are badass y’all.


They walk their walk every single day as trailblazers of this thing we call healing. They seek joy and prioritize awareness. They were born to change the world. …

I gathered 25 holistic practitioners together for a massive book collaboration over the last 5 weeks and I started to realize a few things about what it means to be an authentic healer.

Healers don’t like the word healer. They know they’re there to facilitate a process of empowerment in you, not fix you, or heal you. And that would be the first of many things you can look for when you’re hiring someone to lead you on this journey.

I became a healer (holistic physical therapist) to help people. Later on I realized the bigger plan the Universe had for me; to learn what I needed to to be able to hold a space for others to do that work and thrive in their lives. Being a healer had nothing to do with me fixing people. It had to do with knowing how to practice awareness, in every aspect you can think of, and especially when I was with a client.

I’ll never forget the day I had to fire a client. “I’m not going to be able to see you anymore,” I barely squeaked out over the phone, my palms sweating.

Yes, I had to let someone know that I wasn’t willing to see them anymore and that they’d be better off with someone else. I remained triggered (constant feelings of anxiety, unworthiness, and gut clench) over that incident for weeks. It would be much later that I’d realize I did that person the greatest favor. …

“To build your business, make sure you’re helping other people build theirs.”

I heard this from my badass business friend and mentor and I thought, I’ve done that forever, so why isn’t my business booming!?

I’ve been a pretty amazing connector all my life. I love putting two people together in terms of business, collaborations, or any kind of badassery like that.

It feels good to hook people up with prospective clients, especially when you hit that match made in heaven. That can be a game changer for people. I like to help people win like that.

The part I was missing was teaching other people how to talk about me in a way they could do that referral magic for me too. At first, I was confusing them. That didn’t go well. …

Brave Healers, we were born for this.

Unprecedented my ass.

We know uncertainty. We know fear. We know hopelessness and desperation.

Don’t make the situation mean anything and you win. Because you’re back to the feeling of uncertainty you already know how to deal with. It’s just a feeling. You’ve felt this before. You know what to do.

You already have the tools.

You were trained…for decades. You’re a warrior. You have tools. You teach those tools to others every single day.

Remember who you are.

Remember that you signed up for this journey.

Remember that no matter what’s happening around you, you already know exactly what to do and how to help other people with your ninja moves. …
