Video in the Land of Oz
The challenge of learning Video technology is like being swept away from the comfort of home. All of a sudden everything seems familiar, but strange. A wicked witch scares you into thinking you have nothing to say and you’ll never be able to speak on camera. You may be tempted to resist learning this new marketing tool, wishing for some great OZ rescue.
Learning to speak on video and create great videos for your website and digital marketing takes the same friends Dorothy found in her adventure: The Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and The Scarecrow.
The Tin Man’s Brains – When you face the challenge to plan your video marketing, you quickly realize how vital video is your business. The investment you make in this marketing tool saves you time in the “know-like-trust” of professional relationships. Videos save you time answering basic questions, time explaining how to benefit from your services, time reaching your contacts and linking to the clients of friends and colleagues. Saving time saves money. That is brains.
To overcome the wicked witch holding you back from visibility takes Courage. The Cowardly Lion’s courage to grow into his own skin and realize his great power to pounce on adversity. Courage to stand strong. Courage to speak up and say what is important. Courage to take the journey. Courage to risk the unknown. You have the courage inside ready to emerge and find the freedom to be seen and heard.
The Scarecrow’s heart. You wouldn’t be reading this unless you have true heart. The heart to give. Heart to connect and share your gifts, talents and unique offering. Your videos share your heart like no other medium. Your heart makes the connection with the people you are meant to serve. Video creates a bridge from your heart to the hearts who need your touch. When you speak from your heart, we believe.
Link arms with your new friends: Brains, Courage, Heart and Video4Results and skip down the yellow brick road feeling alive and supported. There’s no place like home.

3 Keys to Activate Your Divine Connection
I’m passionate about empowering spirit-led women to move quickly out of overwhelm and connect to their inner voice and creative power, so they can receive more abundance in life and business.
But it wasn’t always this way. To be totally transparent, I used to sabotage myself with “mindset pitfalls” and instead of attracting health, love and abundance, I had a habit of calling the complete opposite into my life. Although I was a very accomplished musician, writer, teacher, yoga instructor and vocal coach, I was a chronic over-giver and would often put myself last. I was a very juicy target for “energy suckers” and “freebie seekers.”
The Divine decided to have a sense of humor with me one day to reflect my “martyr” attitude back to myself. I was married and seven months pregnant, waiting at a bus stop on my way to my ob-gyn. Suddenly, I was attacked and stabbed in the back eight times by a terrorist who wielded a huge kitchen knife! The weapon fell to the ground, breaking into three pieces, and I ran for my life while sustaining only surface scratches.
I put the event behind me and continued in “push forward” mode until eight years later, when I was diagnosed with a rare, neurological condition that affected my brain, optic nerve and spinal cord. Sounds horrible, right? Actually, I saw the illness as a huge gift – the opportunity to slow down, reflect on my life and heal myself.
Although for years I had questioned the purpose and meaning of my miracle story, only now did I receive this deep realization: Everything in life that happens to you comes directly from the Divine and is meant specifically for you, for your ultimate good. The Divine calls out to have a relationship with you – so you can become who you’re truly meant to be and receive the abundance that is waiting just for you!
This experience led me to discover a step-by-step system that gives you the clarity and confidence to fulfill your purpose and receive your divinely-inspired abundance. (So you won’t ever have to go through a drastic wake-up call like I did.)
I love helping my clients access their inner voice and creative power as their inner divine relationship unfolds, which is the secret to receiving abundance. It’s from this place that they improve their relationships, health and finances. In fact, as a result of this work, one of my clients earned in this past month alone what she earned in all of 2015!
To help get you started, here are 3 Keys to Activate Your Divine Connection.
#1 – Remember Who is in control. Who’s really running the show? This is a challenge for many of us – especially for talented high-achievers. To give over control to the Source of all seems on the one hand so obvious, and on the other – so difficult! We like to be in control. For many of us, the need for control feeds one of our darkest mindset pitfalls: I’m not enough, I’m not worthy, I’m not important, and I can’t. As long as you hold on to one of these mistaken beliefs, letting go will be a challenge. The solution here is to allow “letting go” be your mantra.
Here’s an illustration: One of my clients was in a stressful marriage and had been trying to conceive a second child. As a result of her letting go, she improved her relationship with her husband. At our last session she gave me a thank-you note: “I feel so blessed and grateful for all you have taught me and given to me,” she wrote, “I have grown so much, I have truly transformed…” When I heard from her about nine months later – she was expecting a baby!
#2 – Everything that happens to you is meant specifically for you. Did you ever make an innocent mistake and couldn’t figure out why it happened? Or everything goes wrong one day for no good reason? In the theater of life, we are the players and the Divine is Scriptwriter, Director, and Producer. Each of us is a player in everyone else’s theater so that the Divine can have a relationship with each one of us. While we cannot ultimately pen all of the stories of Life, we can use our free will to rewrite our own stories, by 1) understanding how we interpret and perceive our lives, 2) deciding how we want to experience our reality instead, and 3) take the necessary steps toward those goals.
So instead of feeling guilty or angry when something goes wrong, realize that this is your special moment when the Divine is saying, “Hey, you’re special – pay attention!” When you get really clear on this, life becomes more meaningful and feels magical. You begin to see the world as your personal stage and appreciate the role you’re playing just by being you.
#3 – What happens in your life is for your highest good. You may be saying, How can I possibly see the good when everything around me is falling apart? I hear you. It’s easy to go to that place. The problem with staying there, however, is that you miss out on the golden gift that lies beneath the surface of life’s surprises. That hidden gem is your relationship to the Divine. So the next time you feel frustrated, confused, angry, fearful… these are signals that the Divine is tapping you on the shoulder. Get curious and ask, “I wonder why the Divine is calling to me right now?” Ask to understand the message that you need to hear, or the lesson you need to learn. Remember, it’s all a gift especially for you!
So, following these three steps will help support you to activate your own relationship with the Divine so you can receive more abundance in your life and business. Meditate on these ideas and notice what happens when you open up to the Divine Love that is flowing to you at every moment.
