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?





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


Bleed Your Truth

7 Aug

There’s something visceral about bleeding your truth. It’s the raw outflow of your deepest juice, pure and unbridled. It’s the jaw-popping goodness you get once you’ve cut through the fluff and surface stuff.

So let’s get right down to it. There’re a lot of words and phrases floating around the blogosphere right now: joy; bliss; authenticity; passion; follow your dreams; make epic shit happen. Pretty words on the screen, but how do you apply them in real terms in real life?

One word: desire.

Desire is what pushes you even when you’re weak and fed up with the obstacles in your path.

Desire is what burns in your gut until you get up and do something with all that tense energy tingling underneath your skin.

Desire is what moves you to give your best so you get the best, both from yourself and the people around you.

Bleeding your truth is the desire to be free. For you. To express and be yourself without muzzling your exuberance. To communicate freely without dumbing down your intelligence.

What is your truth? When will you bleed it? What are you waiting for? Will you ever do it?

In case you’re wondering why you have to lay your soul bare like that and why you can’t just shuffle along in silence, you’ll explode if you do. Literally. All the stuff you’ve refused to say and do will well up and gush out whether you’re ready for them or not.

People who “suddenly” seem to snap one day? It’s never sudden; it’s been building for a long time.

Your truth builds, and builds, and it’s up to you to express it. It’s up to you to live it. It’s up to you to brave it. 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.

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

Voice Your Soul

24 May

“Lovely lady, I’m sitting on the bus having gone wow at the beauty, insight & courage of your writing!! The world needs to read this . . .”

My new friend and soul sister Marie Milligan said that to me on Twitter after she visited my blog for the first time and read The Bonds Between You and I. She later asked me how I write the way I do and if my English degree had anything to do with it. University certainly polished my skills but I’d like to think the raw talent was there all along, ha ha. 😀

So she made a special request for a post on How to Write From the Soul. The idea is to encourage those who feel they have something to say but don’t know how to say it, or if they’re even ready to say it. At the risk of claiming to know the answer to instantly fabulous writing, I’ll do my best to make this less about me and more about you. So, here goes.

I believe we all have a story waiting to be told. A truth, a yearning, something we must express to feel free, to feel true, to feel real. We long to be seen and heard, but we worry that our story isn’t interesting or witty or juicy enough. So we shut it in. We shut our voice in. And our spirits wilt with every passing moment.

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

Soul Juice

13 Apr

What lights you up? What completes you? What spurs you to live fully and ecstatically as you centre yourself in the present and bubble with possibility?

Your answer = your soul juice.

There’s currently a lot of talk about self-care, being good to yourself, and acknowledging your achievements even as you strive for more; about looking in the mirror and smiling at what you see. Why? Because doing all those things jazzes up the soul and fuels your engine like you wouldn’t believe. Truth.

Interestingly, though, it’s all too easy to fall into toxicity and self-flagellation. “I shouldn’t have done that. Why did I do that? I’m such a dumbass, I can’t ever get it right.”

We berate ourselves when things go wrong, and out of a misguided sense of modesty, don’t take nearly enough credit when things do go right. After all, isn’t it uncool to blow your own trumpet and tell the world just how magnificent you are? Continue reading

Bright, Beautiful Star

4 Apr

Your energy and vitality

Turn them up, bring them out

Light your fire and burn crazy bright

Let your flames singe you and dare you and lift you

To do more, more, MORE!

More than you ever imagined or dreamed or hoped for

Glowing with your truth and flowing with your intuition

With your spirit wild and free

And your mind light and open.

Come, come, come into this magical place

Your love and passion and mercy and grace

Are waiting to fill you up, fill you all the way to overflowing

Stretching, leaping, blooming and growing.

Let yourself go; let yourself feel

The power in you that is real

Take your place in the cosmos and rise

You bright, beautiful star with luminous eyes.

Celebrating Your Essence

10 Jan

Claiming your path.

Because it’s calling, enticing, scintillating.

Delighting in its pull.

Because it’s glowing, burning, lighting you up inside.

Finding your voice.

Because your truth is welling, urging, bursting to be let loose.

Living your passion.

Because anything else is settling for second-best.

Stop waiting.

Stop settling.

Step up, step out, and step into your light.

Bask in it. Shine with it. Dance in the brilliance of your star.

Inspired by Sandi Amorims awesome post Starbursts, Sirens, and Siriously Shining 🙂
