Tips For Growing Your Pinterest Account 

Post Frequently

To get more Pinterest followers, you should post between 5-30 new pins every day. Make sure you are not just repinning the content of others, but also pinning your own unique pins with your own content.

Warning! Avoid a major Pinterest faux pas: don’t pin all 30 new pins within a 5-minute span. Spread your pinning throughout the day.

Tip! You can create a Secret Board and collect pins to save time. Load up your 20 or so pins in the morning, and keep them on your secret board. Throughout the day, return to the board and grab the pins you want to pin on other “live boards.”

Best times to Pin/Repin are EST 2/4/8pm 1 am…Early Saturday morning. 

Create 5-7 core boards that center around your branding that you can easily mix your products/services into

  • Goal get 50+ HIGH quality pins in your boards for maximum exposure and traffic
  • Clean up boards that don’t make sense with your brand - you can simply hide or delete these. 

Best Visuals To Make Your Pins Stand Out

  • Images WITHOUT faces do best 23% MORE repins. People can visualize themselves in the information easier so the connection to the content is deeper.
  • Warm tones do better than cool tones 2 to 1 with predominately red photos getting 200% more repins.
  • Vertical over horizontal means MORE REAL ESTATE. Your photos should be tall: square or wide photos get less space AND are often blurry in the results feed.
  • Image dimensions: 736 wide x as tall as you like. 736x1102 is a good starting point.

How I Gained Motivation, Energy, Brain Focus + Controlled My Anxiety With DIY NATURAL Nootropic Stacks

I’m a creative personality, a mom, a wife, a boss babe, a business coach, an online entrepreneur, a BUSY women with all the demands that life carries. I get overwhelmed, I get stressed out, I work long hours, I have a million things going at once… AND I’ve always battled with anxiety. I get TIRED… I know you feel me.

 

Over the years I have tried pretty much every supplement for health and wellness, energy, focus, etc: My bathroom cabinets looked like a CVS. Some things worked for awhile, lots of things gave me some benefits but NOTHING addressed every component I was struggling with consistency and chemicals were a hard pass for me. 

 

I had seen the emergence of “nootropics” for awhile but refused to look into them. I’m on a natural/holistic journey and everything I initially saw were all chemical options. Just wasn’t for me.

 

Recently I stumbled upon an article that spoke of NATURAL nootropic options… Ahhh!! My heart sang! Ok, maybe it didn’t sing but my brain absolutely perked up with hopes of a mental boost and some support on those rough days when my anxiety held me and my creativity hostage. 

 

So What are nootropics? 

Nootropics, also known as smart drugs and cognitive enhancers, are drugs, supplements, and other substances that improve cognitive function, particularly executive functions, memory, creativity, or motivation, in healthy individuals. Some of these, when used in conjunction, aid in anxiety & depression and general feelings of overwhelm. 

A nootropic stack, simply put, is the combination of two or more supplements/nootropics. 

 

My stack of choice is a combination of Lion’s Mane, Bacopa Monnieri and Ginkgo Biloba. Boosted focus, easy in memory retention, creativity, mental clarity, ease in anxiety, great mood. 

 

Bacopa Monnieri Bacopa Monnieri is an extract from the Brahmi plant. According to WebMD, Bacopa is used for a wide variety of purposes, including as a supplemental Alzheimer’s treatment and way to reduce anxiety. Evidence suggests that this natural nootropic is effective at improving memory and hand-eye coordination. There have also been some studies that link Bacopa with a reduction in anxiety, insomnia and concentration issues. 

 

Lion’s Mane This edible mushroom can be found in gourmet food stores, and it is also available in a supplement version. Just like many other mushrooms, Lion’s Mane is believed to offer benefits that go beyond nutrition. In fact, there have been several studies conducted in an attempt to discover Lion’s Mane’s full potential, and the results are very promising. For example, 750 mg daily gave test subjects a significant boost in their cognitive functionality. A small clinical study showcased the possibility that this nootropic can offer reduced anxiety and depression. I also discuss the potent Lion’s Mane dual extracted mushroom tea in my podcast with foursigmafoods. 

 

Ginkgo Biloba Leaves from the Ginkgo Biloba tree have been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. The Mayo Clinic did an analysis of each of the medical purposes that this nootropic is used for, and they determined that there is a good amount of scientific evidence to suggest that Ginkgo Biloba is useful for improving cognitive performance and reducing anxiety. 

 

As with any other stack, you need to be cognizant of your stacking choices. After all, putting together the same dosage of each component that you would take individually is not typically a wise choice due to the way that each supplement blends together. For this stack, most folks use the following daily combination, and you can find most of this stuff in bulk on Amazon. 

Lion’s Mane – 500 mg, once per day 

Gingko Biloba – 240 mg, once per day 

Bacopa Monnieri – 100 mg, twice per day 

I feel like a new woman and I'm getting 'ish done! I remember where my keys are AND crank out my heart's work in the best mood ever. 

Top 5 Crystals For Beginners

✨Clear quartz is the most useful and versatile of gemstones for metaphysical work.

Meditation Made Easy : Beginner's Series For Boss Babes Mindset

It’s so easy to think that meditation needs to be difficult and that there’s no time to do it.. I know, I’ve been there. I KNEW it was something I wanted/needed in my life but every time I sat down to attempt a session my brain went rogue: Grocery list, bills due, client meetings, arguments with hubby, what do I want for lunch, did I remember to feed the fish… allllll came rushing in demanding attention. 

This chick felt like a FAILURE.

It seemed like the path to finding more peace within myself was more frustrating than zen. 

After I finally realized mediation was a muscle that had to be strengthened I gave myself enough grace and TIME to learn the new skill that would ultimately help me “go within” and learn how to love & heal myself, profoundly transforming my life, my relationships and my business. 

YOU have the power to heal yourself. If you have ever experienced high anxiety and panic like you felt it was going to eat you alive, meditation is for you. 
If you've experienced feeling disconnected and lacking motivation, meditation is for you.
If you are hungry to find balance and clarity in your busy boss babe life, meditation is for you.
If there are relationships in your life that need healing or release… meditation is for you.
If your finances are a major stress in your life.... meditation is for you. The money mindset I started with was limiting, scarce, controlling, the cause of so much stress. The “M” word was not something I cherished or felt empowered around. .... 

* Meditation reduces stress.
* It improves concentration. “I'm more centered and focused in everything I do. 
* It encourages a healthy lifestyle.
* The practice increases self-awareness. 
* It increases happiness.
* Meditation increases acceptance. 
* It slows aging.
* The practice benefits cardiovascular and immune health.

SO many times I’ve been asked “How do I start meditating?” “How can I make it work for me?” “Where do I start?” “What if I can’t quiet my mind?” “Do I have to close my eyes?”

I realized there is a HUGE need to guide but I also realized it’s not something that can be conquered in one tidy conversation. Beginning your meditation practice is a journey, it will serve you for the rest of your life. I honestly believe it’s one of the most empowering things you can ever do for yourself. 

I’m honored to open my “Abundant Meditation” series.

This series will be in a private group setting lasting 30 days. We will cover everything you need to get comfortable and consistent in your meditation practice together. 

Finding what works for you is key, no two people are exactly alike. 

In the group I will share lives, resources, guided meditations and tools to help you:

Create your space
Get grounded
Clear energies
Remove Blocks
Open to abundance
Private meditations on manifestation, money mindset, creativity, forgiveness, releasing past traumas, stopping anxiety attacks, reducing stress,... (just some of my favorites). 

This is going to be such a BEAUTIFUL and transformative community.

Awkward teenage breakups, roller rink Friday nights, holiday songs that spark memories of my childhood.. and now my kiddos childhood, the songs that make you want to shake your money maker (or at least remember when you used to), windows down on warm summer nights ...blaring as we sang along however badly, off key. Songs have always been the best form of stories to me.

Music is a HUGE part of my success morning routine.

Music sends messages to your subconscious, it evokes feelings, it creates beliefs, it opens creativity, it elevates moods: The right songs are the cornerstone to your new, powerfully positive morning rituals.

HOW TO CLEAR AND CLEANSE YOUR SPACE, YOUR CRYSTALS, AND YOU.

Elevate your space and your vibe!

In this blog I'll show you: How to clear and cleanse your space, your crystals, and you. 

Space clearing is very similar to the physical house cleaning. Every week I take time to cleanse my space, removing any negativity or heavy energy. It’s always an immediate elevation of my vibe. Even the animals love smudge say. It’s also important to cleanse any crystals that you bring into your home before use as you want to remove any stagnant energy that they may be holding.

There are many ways to cleanse your environment, crystals and yourself. In this blog I’m going to list a few of my favorites.

  • Sage: This is a sacred plant that has been used since ancient times. It’s known as a purifier. Burning it helps drive out negative energy and restore balance to a particular space or crystals. 

Smudging with Sage is an ancient practice. It’s a purifying smoke bath that can be used to cleans a person, place, object, or space of negative energies. When the smoke begins to melt away, it takes the unwanted energy with it. 
Smudging with sage is a super easy way to uplift of the energy. It’s similar to how you might feel when you sit on the sand near the ocean and smell the fresh, salty breeze. That’s because moving water and fresh air are natural sources of negative ions, which are actually positive things to have around. That’s why most of us love the feeling we have after a day at the beach! Zen, baby!
The smoke created from the burning sage releases a large amount of negative ions into the space. The result is a light, balanced, and high vibrational energy.
  • How to: You can find safe in a wrapped stick form or loose leaves. I prefer the ease of a “smudge stick”. 
Light the Sage over at fire proof container and let the sticks catch well. Allow it to burn for 30 seconds before you blow it out.
As the smoke comes from the stick or leaves, sage yourself first. I suggest starting at the top of your head and working downward. 
To sage/smudge your space open the front door and all the windows in the home to allow the unwanted energy to be released. Starting at the front door, sage around the outside of the door frame. Now walk back inside, and begin saging the space by moving clockwise through it.
To clear any unwanted energy from crystals simply pass them through the smoke for 20 to 30 seconds. 
  • Palo Santo: I absolutely love the way this one smells. Palo Santo means “holy wood” in Spanish.

When it’s burned, the smoke is believed to provide medicinal and therapeutic healing. 

  • How to: Light your Palo Santo stick.
Let the stick catch fire, and allow it to burn for about 30 seconds. Then gently blow it out. If needed, you can blow on the embers to keep the smoke going throughout your cleansing process.
To bless your self, the space, or crystals, simply allow the smoke and beautiful smell of the Palo Santo to fill a room. To fill your space with blessings, start at the front door and walk clockwise through it with your Palo Santo.
  • Frankincense: Also known as liquid gold, this resin is extracted from the Boswellia tree that is found in north Africa, India, and Southern Arabia. 

Frankincense assists in removing negative energy from any space, providing protection, and creating an elevated spiritual awareness. I loving using this in my meditations. It is often used to lift moods, to ease anxiety and stress, and for purification. 

Because frankincense is a resin, it’s best used when placed on top of a burning charcoal. Each self lighting charcoal round has an indentation that serves as the perfect spot for holding the frankincense in place. 
Place a charcoal in your container, and lights at the top and bottom of the bricks. Wait a few minutes for the charcoal to heat up.
Add the frankincense to the top, and allow the smoke to billow. 
  • How to: To cleanse yourself or your crystals, simply allow the smoke and rich smell of the frankincense to fill anywhere you wish to clear the energy. To clear the energy of your space, start at the front door and walk clockwise through it with your container.
Note that the charcoal and the container will remain hot for quite some time even after the smoke is stopped so be careful when handling. 
With any of the options above always use a fireproof container for safety. An abalone shell works beautifully for the sage and Palo Santo. Frankincense needs a metal base to avoid burning the surface below.

How To Choose Your Mala Prayer Beads & Meanings

 

Ok y’all, mala beads are taking over people’s wardrobes – and it’s about time. What is this fashion trend I’m missing out on all about, you ask?

 

Choosing the right mala prayer beads can seem daunting. It’s important to remember that depending on the person, a mala necklace or bracelet can represent something different or serve a different purpose.

No two malas are the same – whether it serves as something to inspire you, as a reminder of your intention, or a tool for meditation, it’s unique and specific to you.

how to pick the right mala

There is no right or wrong way to choose mala prayer beads. While some believe that you should study and consider the color, shape, intention, energy and beauty of each mala, the best way is to let your intuition guide you.

You might be drawn to different prayer beads for different reasons. Whichever mama you are first drawn to is often the one that you are destined to have.

Regardless of whether you are drawn to it by something as simple as color or stone, it’s best to follow your heart and allow it to happen.

researching your mala prayer beads

Once you feel you have chosen your mala, do some research and learn about the intention and meaning of your chosen beads. You might be pleasantly surprised – more often than not, it will be exactly what you’re looking for or needing in that moment. Your intention helped guide you there.

what to ask yourself when choosing your next mala

Some questions we find ourselves asking when looking for our next mala are:

  • What are you trying to manifest?
  • Are you looking to cultivate more strength, more love, more truth?
  • Will you be meditating or manifesting? Or both?

Depending on your answer to these questions, there may be a mala that is more suitable to you than others, on paper.

However, if different to the mala you were initially drawn to, we strongly encourage you to compare the two. What drew you to your initial mala? Where do these malas differ?  

Regardless of the mala you choose or the intentions you have, the most important thing to remember when beginning this journey is to follow your heart. Once you’ve chosen and received your mala, it’s best to activate your prayer beads to align it with your intentions and your energy. Follow your heart.
