Calling All Dreamers and Seekers

17 Sep

Do you have a business idea you’re aching to implement but keep shying away from?

Is there a creative project you’ve been putting off forever?

Do you want to change your life but keep getting stuck before going all the way?

Yes? Well then, have I got  a treat for you. 😀

Enter Natalie Sisson‘s killer initiative $100 Change, a 100-day programme for $100 — huge momentum for a dollar a day. What could be better?

Natalie runs her own business and is super dedicated to helping others get what she’s got: a location-independent business that suits her lifestyle right down to the ground and frees up her time to do the things really important to her.

I follow her blog The Suitcase Entrepreneur and it’s packed with tools and information for beautiful growth in your life + business, so of course I’m a fan of her awesomeness. 😀

Anyway, I signed up for $100 Change on Saturday and I’m talking about it here because I believe in what she’s put together to make a difference in the world.

Natalie’s written this kick-ass post on how the project came to be, and check out this delicious overview:

This is an opportunity to join a community tailored to meet your creative needs and support your journey to fulfil your dream. Plus, you can eneter to win one of 10 scholarships and use the money to further your goal. There’s a ton of value in this and it’s time to get your greatness started

I’ve already changed after just one prompt landed in my inbox: I sat down and wrote the introduction for my second eBook. My outline had been gathering dust for the past few weeks, yet I got the push to flesh it out within 24 hours of signing up! Explosive progress, innit?

This is how movements are born. This is how history’s written. You have 100 days to build habits that’ll ensure your success. Sign up. Make them count.

Natalie’s rooting for you. The 100 change makers are rooting for you.  I’m rooting for you.

You can choose to turn your life around within 100 days. The question is, will you?

You Can Choose

24 Aug

You can choose to bend your back under the burdens of feeling incompetent, operating from scarcity and despair. Stagnant.

You can choose to bow your head and fix your eyes on the ground under the weight of never being good enough for yourself or anybody else.

You can choose to live on your knees, trapped in the dark hole of your circumstances and your mind.

Or.

You can choose to rise.

You can choose to climb.

You can choose to drop the weights and make them your bridge to greatness.

You can choose to get on your feet and fight your way out of the dark.

You can choose to raise your head, straighten your spine, and face down every feeling of less than or not good enough.

You can choose to slice through your reserve and say the things you really want to say. Do the things you really want to do. Feel the things you really want to feel.

You can choose to free yourself.

You can choose to value your growth and expansion more than you value your comfort.

Choice. Intention. Action. Reaction. A consciousness that your behaviour creates your present and your future. Might as well operate from a richness of spirit, eh?

There is always a choice: action or inaction; victory or defeat; blend with your power or blend with your fear.

Blending with your power strengthens you, sharpens your identity, emboldens you to flow with your challenges and stay fluid enough to find lasting solutions.

Blending with your fear depletes you, sucks you dry, blurs the shape of your identity and leaves you at the mercy of whatever challenge you encounter, both big and small.

You can choose to ask for help when you don’t have the answers.

You can choose to spark your soul fire and guard it fiercely against those who would douse it.

You can choose to go deeper than most and trust that you’re capable of handling whatever’s buried within.

You can choose.

What’s your choice? Will you decide to flourish, not because anyone says so or pushes you to, but for yourself? I hope your answer’s yes.

Mine is. Yes.

What Are You Willing to Give?

19 Aug

What are you willing to give to get where you want to be?

What are you willing to give to be who you want to be?

What are you willing to give to shake things up and grab hold of the silver lining?

Time?

Money?

Effort?

Dedication?

Your life?

How about everything: throwing yourself, all of yourself, into living true to your soul’s purpose?

How about it?

What are you willing to give? Continue reading

Shine at Your Fingertips

30 Jul

I’m excited. And worn out. And ready to sleep for days on end. My eBook Shine at Your Fingertips is finally ready to be launched into the world. Booyah.

This is something I worked on for a long time and polished as much as I could before presenting it here. It’s my first attempt so please bear with any snafus, LOL. 

Here’s a sneak peek:

Introduction: Why I’m Writing It

Hello! First of all, thank you for reading this. Thank you for choosing to spend your time with me. I promise to make it worth every moment.

My name is Otiti. I’m writing this eBook for you. For me. For us. For the world. It’s a message from my gut to yours, a call from my heart to yours. There’s a truth we all need to remember, and that truth is this: we are all made to shine. Every single one of us.

There’s a light within, a fire, a passion so deep and intense we fear it might consume us if we tap into it. So we shy away, and we stay small and safe, and we remain unfulfilled.

I’d like to change all that. I’m here for the soul explorers. The truth-seekers. The lovers of light and energy and fire. The minds in love with clarity and vision. The hearts open to adventure while exploring the unknown, braving the edge again and again.

Let’s take this journey together and step into our brilliance. Let’s take this journey together and access the shine at our fingertips.

Our greatest challenge is to be our fullest selves. Are you up for it?

That’s it! Want more? 😀 Download it HERE. No charge. 🙂 I’m confident it’s full of juicy goodness to water your soul. Please share it with your peeps and leave a comment on what you take away from it! Happy reading, my friends.

PS: I’m told mobile downloads don’t work so I suggest using your computer or other device to access the eBook. Thanks!

Of Stardust + Audacious Cosmic Energy

27 Jul

This whole week has been about being audacious and living out loud at full volume. Like, eardrum-piercing, blood-throbbing volume. Fuelled purely by your intuition and the fact that you’re simply brimming with cosmic energy, dahling.

Dictionary.com : audacious (adj):

  1. extremely bold or daring; recklessly brave; fearless
  2. extremely original; without restriction to prior ideas; highly inventive
  3. recklessly bold in defiance of convention, propriety, law, or the like; insolent; brazen
  4. lively; unrestrained; uninhibited 

You are made of stardust. You are here to revel in colour and energy. You are here to live every single day. Believe that.

If you ask me what I came to this world to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud.

Emile Zola

Incandescent inker Nikki Groom wrote a post that made me sit up and PAY ATTENTION: Indecision Is Brutal was a wake-up call like no other. Packed with gorgeous goodness and one soul-scorching line after the other, it made me ask one simple question: WTF was I doing dithering so much?

Why wasn’t I out there acting on my truth? Why wasn’t I lighting up the universe with my personal brand of magic? And more importantly, why are we so hesitant to step into our power?

While I was still chewing over Nikki’s words 2 days later, I read You’re Genius. Didn’t You Know? by Danielle Dowling. Danielle spoke my language and drummed home the message that it’s time to explode onto the scene. Now. NOW. Not tomorrow or next week.

Well, I don’t know about you but it definitely seemed like the universe was trying to tell me something. Not just me either, but you, you, you, and you. Everyone who reads this blog and the posts above. That message is simply this:

Be bold. Fierce. Audacious. Dare to dream so big you can’t imagine how it’ll ever be possible, then make it possible. Dare to have a vision so grand you wonder if you’re not deluding yourself, then knuckle down and work it into existence.

Follow your intuition so audaciously you have no room for doubt and second-guessing. Get out there and make shit happen.

You can have anything you want if you want it desperately enough. You must want it with an inner exuberance that erupts through the skin and joins the energy that created the world.

The Radiant Soul Manifesto

17 Jul

You are here to explode like a supernova and burn as fierce as a forest fire.

You are here to light up the world with your brilliance.

You are here to be the highest, sweetest, hottest version of yourself.

You are here to discover your personal brand of magic and dazzle the rest of us with it.

You are here to think for yourself, to decide for yourself, to choose for yourself.

You are here to love, to build, to create, to strengthen.

You are here to leave a legacy of power and impact.

You are here to show up, to rise, to feel the wind in your bones as you soar in the sky.

You are here to dream and imagine, to make the nebulous concrete and the ethereal real.

You are here to celebrate your gifts.

You are here to live fully, vibrantly, wholeheartedly.

You are here to be a Radiant Soul.

Get on it.

Power. You. Here. Now.

29 Jun

Right now, this very second, power is bubbling within you. Energy is percolating away and straining at the seams of confinement.

Do you feel it? Do you sense it?

Power is changing the way you think and how you perceive the world, why you’re here and what you’re going to do about your life’s calling.

Do the shifts scare you? Are you scrabbling to hold tight to old ways or breathing deep to let change flow in + through you?  Continue reading

The Bonds Between You and I

16 May

Sometime ago, I found  myself struggling with feeling unworthy and below par compared to my peers and role models. A constant loop of negativity and self-criticism  kept playing in my head until I was ready to scream my heart hoarse just to ease the pain and silence the bullying (because that’s what it really is).

So instead, I decided to write affirmations of how I wanted to feel, of what I believed to be true even though my lizard brain tried to convince me otherwise.

I share them with you today because everyone gets stuck in a rut sometimes. Everyone feels down and lagging behind on what they can/should/ought to have done or accomplished, and we’re all missing one truly important thing: WHAT ABOUT RIGHT NOW? 

Most of our angst stems from being stuck in the past or fretting hard about the future.

So today, right here, right now, take this moment to be present right where you are. Get out of your head and into your heart. Break free of the blame game and regret and lift your head up to the sky. As you do so, remember:

You are beautiful. You are worthy. You are enough. You are strong. You are capable. You are able. You are. You are. Continue reading

The Soul Juice Manifesto

2 May

Own your magnificence. Be bold, exotic, fabulous. Be proud to glow, baby.

Nourish your soul with loving and empowering words. Reward your spirit with praise for your triumphs and understanding for your setbacks. Perfection is a myth. Learn from every experience. Keep it moving.

You are exquisite. You are powerful. You are a soul of energy and fire. Continue reading

Know. Savour. Embrace.

26 Apr

“I don’t know what to do.”

You do. You do know what to do. You’ve always known.

You know that you need to live true to yourself. You know that you need to work towards your desire, not against it. You know that you need to feel alive by doing the things that are sacred and important to you.

You know. You know.

Your soul is nudging you right now, isn’t it? Whispering in your ear and urging you to leap. Leap. Piping up and saying “She’s right, you know. Let’s go for it. Let’s!”

Let it move you. Let it speak. Let it grow. Let your soul guide you. Continue reading
