Something that a lot of people don’t know about me is that I’ve had a pretty big fear of public speaking for most of my life. This often comes as a surprise to people because I work really hard to carry myself with confidence. I’ve learned through many experiences that the whole “fake it til you make it” thing really does work, so whenever I’m going into a situation that makes me nervous, I dig deep, breathe even deeper, smile, and do my best to at least play the part of feeling comfortable and at ease. I’ve found that the more I do this, the more my body and mind seems to get with the program and eventually I actually do feel confident. I’ve done this in jobs, social situations, and even in periods where I’m navigating challenging inner experiences. But public speaking has been one of those lingering fears that I had shied away from working on, until recently that is...
I’ve known for quite some time now that group work and public speaking is an important next step in my work as a Holistic Health Coach and Wellness Advocate and so, at the end of 2016, I deemed 2017 as the year I was going to conquer my fear of public speaking. I’m currently in the process of putting together my first series of workshops in Los Angeles, which I am both very excited for and also a bit nervous about, too. I’ve been told by a number of people I respect that I am a natural leader, and even though it’s been hard for me to really own that, deep down I know that it’s true and that it’s time for me to step into that role in bigger, bolder ways.
I’ve noticed that whenever I put an intention like this out to the universe, I am almost immediately met with opportunities to step up to the plate. So when Zack Peter invited me to come talk Tarot + Animal Medicine Cards on #NoFilter, I knew it was a perfect opportunity for me to put my voice and gifts out and into the world in a more expansive way! While I was a little bit nervous going into the recording studio, I was quickly put at ease by Zack’s warmth and humor and we had so much fun chatting about all things #WooWooAF from spirit animals to how to use tarot cards for guidance when you’re at a crossroads in life. I also got to give Zack his very first (mini) card readings ever (!), which was super fun for me and I’m pretty sure it was a very interesting experience for Zack as well! Be sure to check out the episode and, if you’ve got some burning questions of your own that you’d like some guidance around, feel free to Schedule an Intuitive Card Reading with me!
