What You Will Do Anything To Achieve, You Will Achieve

pug

4 months ago, I was sitting on the grass at a Hollywood picnic listening to an author talk about time traveling to the future. He said that all of us are time traveling, but not all of us know where we want to go. As I sat there, I envisioned Paris (I’ve been there, but for some reason I lost all my pictures). I also had stickers of the eiffel tower on my living room wall and had a journal with “Paris is always a good idea”.

I suddenly had this realization, what am I doing here?

Today I’ll have completed my travels, tomorrow I’ll be flying back to Los Angeles. Hey, I miss my LA peeps and dancing in LA.

Where have I gone?

London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Paris, Florence, Rome, Naples, and finally Barcelona. My goal was to prove that I could make money doing one thing I loved, Travel. And somehow with the grace of the universe, with the perseverance of my mind and faith, I did it. 

I still was able to make money virtually. This is everyone’s dream isn’t it?

Before I left to Europe, I forced myself to write an ebook. I felt that I was giving all these free advice, but not making a cent sharing my wealth of knowledge. The thing is I’ve SUFFERED A LOT. I’m not telling you this to make you feel bad for me….I’ve suffered, gotten real thin eating rice and kale in the beginning of my self-employment. I didn’t grow up in a rich family, I had low self worth, and ONLY by the grace of divinity, I’ve seen who I really am. 

I’m DIVINE, ROYALTY damn it! 

I really am! I’m completely whole, everything I want is manifested within first. I need to become THAT person first, the queen that wears her royal coat, her Burberry dress, Miu Miu sunglasses, or whatever you fancy.

Until you see who you really are, you are seriously that princess in rags. Think Disney.

And I’ve also learned that PEOPLE who don’t see who they really are will sometimes judge you, look down on you, think you are crazy, think you are lame, NOT SEE YOUR WORTH. But who has time for haters anyways? 

You don’t have time for that. You’ve got to time travel to where you really want to go.

And as I speak….I know that when you get this ebook, you’re signaling to the universe that you are READY to become the queen or king you really are. 

Adios and see you in LA!

Every Decision You Make Creates Your Destiny

Image

 

Did you know that EVERY decision you make creates your destiny?

Did you know every thought you CHOOSE to dwell on creates your destiny?

Did you know that you can live your dreams by deciding what to listen to, what to watch, who you hang out with, what you choose to do, what websites you look at, what books you read, what reaction you choose to act on. What choices you make every single day…CREATES your destiny.

I haven’t always made the best choices, but I want to say that I have consciously chosen most of my decisions in life. Some people look at others and think “they must be lucky”, they were just in the right place at the right time...well do you ever think that perhaps they SHOWED UP to that one place many times? Perhaps, that person chooses to attend networking events 2-3 times a week, do you think that when the right time is on the calendar, that person is right there? 

People ask me how I hear about cool events that I attend and how did I get to do this or that…I prioritize and make myself available for the events and people that I have wisely chosen beforehand. It’s a domino effect, I then meet more people in the right places at the right time. I also think of every encounter as a spiritual encounter, I don’t use people for what they can do for me. I believe that we are meant to meet each person to help, heal and grow each other. I can easily tell when someone is trying to use me or step on me to get “up the stairs”. No one wants to be a stepping stool. 

Here are some VERY practical steps to living your dreams instead of talking about it:

“I want to travel one day”- Book a flight, it will only take 5 minutes via internet, then start saving up for it, trade nights out for your future booked trip.

“I want to write a book”- Start writing, even if it is not sequential, write 1 page a day.

“I want to buy a house”- research and talk to lenders about what you need to buy a house, talk to a real estate professional 

“I want to find a partner”- don’t just sit on your couch night after night, go out, meet people, go online, do things you love to do and the right person will be there.

And more……..Oh yes, if you haven’t, please like my FACEBOOK PAGE: http://www.facebook.com/houseslady

To creating your destiny,

Balance Is BS.

Yoga & Meditation Class Thursdays!

Balance is BS.

Some people ask me how I do everything, from the real estate to writing to attending events to teaching yoga to running multiple businesses…

Number 1 question I get from people- “how do you balance everything?” 

You don’t.

You do one thing at a time. I am not sitting here on the phone, writing and watching TV at the same time. In fact, I don’t OWN a TV and neither do I own a NETFLIX account (anymore). Is it stressful not being able to de-stress by sitting on my ARSE and watch TV? No, I read and I de-stress by jacuzz-ing or running/doing yoga. I love movies and tv shows, don’t get me wrong…but when an obsession hits me, I’m working…

And most of the time, it does not feel like work. No one is telling me to rebrand my business, no one is telling me to go network or meet new people, it’s an inner drive.

Is there balance in the entrepreneurial life? 

No, you either work hard & MOST IMPORTANTLY, SMART, or you REST HARD and SMART! 

This leads me to the fact that most of what I do IS NOT WORK, it is an OBSESSION. The best blog posts or marketing materials I have ever created were from PURE HEAVENLY explosion of INSPIRATION. My mind is not going “OMG how can I get more clients…” – yes sometimes it works like that, but when OBSESSION hits, my thoughts are going a million miles…

My mind is more like “OMG I can do this, OMG I can do that, wow I never thought of that, that would be a really great business idea…woo I can learn from that business….wooo”

Is it logical? Not always, obsession is not always logical, it’s a bit of insanity in my brain sometimes.

That’s why I have learned to WORK SMART, instead of HARD.

Working smart means WORKING IN SPURTS…and then RESTING in SPURTS. 

We need to stop pretending that we are working hard, that stuff kills your energy. Can you imagine sitting there pretending to work while being distracted by a million social media posts? It drains you fast!

What if we all learned to GET STUFF done, inspired FAST, EXCELLENTLY, PRECISE, and then we can go to that happy hour you have been talking about for 10 years (and it’s just across the street but you always miss it because you were pretending to work hard). Perhaps then you can go on that vacation to Hawaii that you have been saving up vacation days for the last 20 years. JEEZ LOUIZ!

Pure Genius is learning to work less and get more stuff done.

Pure Genius is outsourcing work that would take you forever and make you less productive, efficient and money producing.

Pure Genius is learning to let go of work that drains you and focusing on work that INSPIRES and ENERGIZES YOU. 

Pure Genius is learning to shy away and say no to coworkers that keep distracting you from getting work done so that you can actually have “fully present” moments of talking with your coworkers or friends during your “breaks”.

Am I focused? Oh yes, I am SO FOCUSED my eyes are popping out. Will people continue to question me? Yes, they probably will. The deal is that people who don’t think as brilliantly and as fast as I do will NEVER understand me. Why should they?

Let me be a mystery, let it be.

People don’t understand you? It doesn’t really matter.

Focus with your eyes wide open on you, because you gotta do you, and they gotta do they.

At the end of the day, you are the one who has got to live with yourself.

So question answered, how do I balance everything? I don’t, I strategize my time so precisely that I am sharp, productive, and I get sh*t done. When I play, I play SMART, when I work, I work SMART. In fact, work becomes play sometimes and play becomes work….I network when I play, I come into brilliant discussions of possible collaborations when I am playing.

It can be exhausting at times, but then I learn to REST SMART. Korean spa anyone?

How do you strategize your time? Do you believe in balance?

Laws of Money and Success

Image

As an entrepreneur, I have gained clarity and broken out of many types of mindsets that limited my life. I am grateful that I was taught the laws of the universe early on in life. I am grateful that I continued to pursue the wisdom of this universe.

I immigrated 3 times in my life, but often had an unstable lifestyle. I moved so many times I cannot even count. I also experienced close friendships, extreme emotions like intense joy and intense depression and pain. I made soul friends who were once close, but then moved on in life. I experienced divorce in the family, loneliness in my childhood, financial hardships and feeling like I did not fit in anywhere I went. I have also gained unique clarity in all of these experiences.

In the negativity of my life, I gained hope in my own quiet place in my heart. Over the years, I have observed everyone from young to old, rich to poor, people of all races and people in various countries. I have seen the poorest of poor running around enjoying the abundance of life and natural resources. I have also seen the richest of rich emit a stench of intense loneliness and despair. I have also seen vice versa. I have heard stories that surprised me, because one cannot judge someones’ looks, ever. How we present ourselves in this world does not always reflect our inner world.

Universal Laws I learned over the years:

1. Law of Use– the law of use explains that when we waste something by not using it, we are actually stopping more from coming to us. There is a show called Hoarders, and I wrote about this in my previous blog post…when we hoard something we do not need or has no sentimental value, we are keeping dead energy. Just imagine that thing as a dead rat sitting in your closet. Keeping your house fresh and getting rid of old things is one way to invite new and beautiful things into your life! Today I threw out a table that was broken and I felt so liberated. That thing was carrying negative energy just by being BROKEN! 

2. Law of Abundance- The law of abundance says that the more you focus on what you can afford (even in the future), what you desire, what blessings you already have…the more you attract that abundance. When you live from a spirit of poverty, people will sense that and not want to do business with you. Even if people don’t believe in the laws or spiritual truths, they can sense your energy or vibe. I have learned that and broken out of the poverty mindset. I no longer hold negative thoughts about not having enough, I always tell myself that I have more than enough…and miraculously when I let go of the results and control, money comes easily to me.

3. Law of Giving- Money and material things are meant to be circulated. Money is an energy and when we invest, give, use what we have been given, we allow more to come into our hands. It is also important to note that we should not give out of duty, but out of desire. Giving out of guilt or duty also comes from a spirit of poverty and lack. This will only welcome in more lack even though you may be giving in the external world.

4. Law of Joy – Each accomplishment or success step comes with an emotion. When we accomplish something we want, we feel this intense gratefulness and joy…in order to welcome that success into your life, you must live each day as if YOU ALREADY HAVE IT. What comes out of your mouth must be words of success and not of limitation, how you act must be actions of victory and not of defeat. 

I hear people say, “I want to do this, but you know it’s really tough…”. I stop them immediately and tell them that by saying that they have ALREADY defeated themselves, they have already stopped that dream from coming true by simply stating something that IS NOT TRUE. 

I have people tell me that I am crazy, my own family member tells me that I am a dreamer, but while these people are complaining about how I am crazy, I am slowly living and fulfilling my dream. I simply ignore negative talk and keep my positive head high, higher than anyone if I need to. Which leads us to….

5. The Law of Attraction- The law of attraction says that whatever you think, act, say will come into being. The law of attraction attracts the people, friends and business that you are currently embodying. Don’t get me wrong, I am still learning everyday and am learning what my worth is, but I will to the best of my ability discipline my mind, words and action to align with what I want for my future. If you are hanging out with people you do not want to become, or perhaps are not going anywhere in life, you might want to consider ditching them! Like attracts like! Then there are those that have come along you to go with you to those high places in life. Then so be it!

6. Law of Growth- At the end of the day, it is your PERSONAL growth that will help you to be a happy person. It is not material possessions or money that will make you happy….it is much deeper than that. For me, it is my spirituality, my wisdom, my gratefulness and all things that are actually intangible that makes me happy! The more you grow, the more you will break off negative and old mindsets….the more you will live in a way where you don’t care about what people think, but you live out of true freedom!

3 Tips to Become An Effective Entrepreneur

3 Tips to Become An Effective Entrepreneur

DSC_0088

Hello fellow Entrepreneurs and People of This Earth! 

I have 3 tips to help YOU become a more effective business owner, artist, entrepreneur or person in general!

I have been self-employed, and now as a real estate professional, artist and speaker…since November of 2011. I had about $100 or less in the bank when I started, I had just backpacked in Australia, visiting the Great Barrier Reef, Sydney, Cairns and Melbourne on an adventure of love and self-discovery. Think “#Eat Pray and Love”. I recommend TRAVELING and SOLO BACKPACKING to anyone who wants to live a self-discovered, passionate and purposeful life. 

I journal a lot when I travel, I observe and am open to meeting any new strangers, or angels if you call it. I live like that in Los Angeles as well, I am open to new adventures and mishaps (which could very well lead to amazing friends). For example, the above photo was taken by a photographer named Patrick Barraza who responded to one of my craigslist ad for collaboration. Is it scary to put myself out there like that? Not really, I don’t allow fear to enter my mind and I try to stay away from people who spew fear into the atmosphere. I try to change my atmosphere by disputing with their fearful thoughts. I try to encourage people to think positively. What you focus on usually comes true, does it not?

So that’s a little about my background of how I started and how I continue to live my entrepreneurial and creative life.

3 tips to help you become a more effective entrepreneur:

1. Sit down and Plan- 

On sundays, I usually sit down and schedule in appointments for the week. I leave open spaces where I can create freely without hindrances of a set schedule, but there are set appointments I have to pencil in. I also write what my goals are on the side, this will determine what opportunities and people I should really hone in on.

Your goals should not only be material, it should focus on qualities. For example, for April, I want to feel accomplished, successful and alive. Having set income or material goals is a good thing, however, if you don’t know what you truly want to feel and embody in your spirit, you can achieve all those things and still feel empty. Perhaps you want to feel and embody peace. Seek and you will find.

Here are a few examples of what you can write down:

Peace, joy, love, connectedness, community, passion, creativity, aliveness, life, rest, success, health, wealth, fullness, wholeness, beauty, wonder, adventure, freedom…etc.

2. Think before saying Yes-

I have learned the hard way that “Yes” can lead to burn out. Practice saying “Let me get back to you on that, I will think about it or check my schedule”. Instinct is good sometimes, because you want to be able to be open to spontaneous encounters, but if you have a habit of jumping in too soon because you want to please people….check yourself! No’s can be the best thing for welcoming in an open door to the right opportunity. You only have limited hours in a day, choose wisely.

3. Take vacations or take days off- 

You are your own boss when you are an entrepreneur. It is WAY too easy to work all day, all the way from your bed in the morning back to your bed at night. Successful business owners know how to set boundaries and keep “fun time” pure of “work time”. You don’t want to dilute your time too much because you’ll end up being a slave to your own business! We chose this path to be free from work, not a slave to work. My first boss once told me “find what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”, well, it is still work, but you can get to a point where you enjoy it every time you do it because you really don’t have to!

Here’s a fun video I made: Enjoy!

What Is Synchronicity?

Synchronicity is when you let go,

let be.

Synchronicity happens when you stop trying and let the pages fall into place.

Synchronicity is when you give yourself a break after pushing fiercely in the beginning and know you have done everything you can

to make it happen.

Synchronicity is when you don’t care anymore how and when it will work out.

Synchronicity happens when you chill and breathe.

Synchronicity happens when you choose to be happy in spite of all the gray colors.

Synchronicity happens when you learn to enjoy life and you stop planning how IT SHOULD happen in your mind.

Just do your best and let the rest fall into the beautiful place it wanted to be in anyways.

Where there is fear and hesitancy, the universe resists. Where there is 110% unwavering faith, the universe flows to meet and greet you. Faith is actually not a feeling, it is belief in yourself, in a bigger being, in imagination and creativity. If you can imagine it, it will happen. The key is to be joyful in the process, because you are only losing energy by being stressed. 

I know this because I go through this all the time, the expectation of something to fall through. It is only when you don’t care too much about the results, that things fall into place….when you learn to have fun and celebrate in the process, things happen easier.

There are lot of doors closed, but we focus on knocking at one door when just behind us is an open door. 

This is where creativity kicks in, we should always use our critical and creative thinking skills- there is more than one way for things to happen, I have experienced this in the past. The beautiful thing about life is that things can happen anyway we allow them to happen, ALLOW, yes, not want, but allow. And sometimes when we allow doors to fling open, we are not dead panned on one door opening, we will flood our lives with blessings that are beyond the human eyes.

Her artwork Speak Up inspired me to speak boldly for my life, my desires and my dreams….I thank her for influencing me with her creative expression. Thanks Justine!

Here’s a poem and blog post dedicated to SPEAKING UP!

Speak Up-

When all feels dim and your thoughts are cluttered, speak up and don’t wait until it is too late.

Let your words flow from your heart, words that are true, words that are raw, let yourself be,

be vulnerable, be wanting, be sad, be romanced….

Let your words be true, speak up.

When the lights are dimmed and the bugs creep up the walls of my fermented heart, I let oxygen in, breathing deeply, I allow the vocal chords to open up and that fresh voice, so long abandoned, sings.

Courage, to be.

Courage, to feel.

Courage, to speak, up, up higher than we can ever know, up, up higher than we will ever reach, eclipsing.

We are allowed to be who we want to be, at the end of the day, speak up, don’t speak when it is too late to rescue the forgotten hearts.

Relationships don’t work because of fear, when someone does not bring 100% to the table because they are scared to get hurt, the relationship fails. Love is boldly loving 100%, love is self-sacrificing ONLY when it is based on love, not fear. Love is speaking TRUTH and speaking what is on your heart so that fear does not creep in and get the better of you.

I find that as humans we often hold back who we truly are to please people. For that moment, we are granted temporary acceptance, yet we have caused our hearts to die a little more. That once beating heart, slowly losing tempo…until one day, we have ceased to feel. That is the biggest tragedy we will have encountered. I hope that you never let that happen, because a life that is worth living is a life that you FIGHT for, that means you FIGHT for your voice and yourself. When we live in the authentic expression of who we really are, we will also allow others’ soul to soar and sing. Then we will have done our job as human beings on earth.

Will you allow your spirit to soar? Because you are worth it, you are a bird wants to be free. How many people crave the truest expression of their hearts, yet struggle to be who they really are? You can find it in love, there is absolutely NO fear in love.

At The End Of My Life…

At the end of my life, I want to say that I lived fearlessly. 

At the end of my life, I want to say that I grasped each moment with vigor.

I want to learn from each lesson and live with boldness so that I have tried all solutions, all desires, all impossible feats, I have tried. So that at the end of my life, I won’t be an old lady who sits at a chair and mopes about what I did not do and what I wish I had done.

No, I want to be a fire and life filled old lady with electric blue dyed hair who enjoys her beach side home hanging out on a hammock with live bands playing by the fireside. I don’t want to submit to the structure of this world, a script that I never wrote…I want to define each moment of my life so that I am living on my own terms and not on the words which bellows out of the lions’ den. 

I want to be good to myself, women- it’s a message for you. You put you first and the rest comes. If you are depending on other people to make you happy, forget about it. Your happiness is not going to last. 

At the end of my life, I want to say that I enjoyed every year of my life. Maybe I had really horrible years, but I learned to have fiestas with my circumstances. I learned to see the beauty in mistakes and pain. I don’t want to live in a bubble of plastic situations and man-made synthetic fabrication of “what should be” or “steps a, b, c” or “because he/she told me to”. Let my life be original….so that when someone writes about me or makes a movie about me, it is not identical to others, but uniquely me. 

At the end of my life, I want to say “I loved myself well” and because I loved myself well, I was able to give the gift of me to others, whole, 100% authentic me without BS. 

I want to have lived in the present, embracing wholly that which the moment gives, sound, light, color, energy, positivity. I let the negative feelings of bitterness, anger, sadness, guilt, shame….dissipate into the abyss. I let light seep into my every pore so I am entrenched and filled with liquid love. At the end of the day, you have you and you have love. And that, is really what matters.

If you were speaking to your inner child, what would you say to her or him? 

Are the things you say to yourself something you would never say to your own self when you were 3, 5, 10??? 

Would you say the same things to your own child?

If so, start speaking truth, love and hope into your inner child. These are words you should be speaking to yourself, because that is love.
