Our thoughts are our most powerful creators.
Hi, I'm Rach.
Well, hello there! I am so grateful you are here right now and would give you a big hug if we were sitting across from each other or meeting in person. For now, know that I am sending you love directly from my heart to yours.
I have to be honest with you. Growing up, I dreamed of one day creating and living my life by my own design, not someone else's standards or achievement system. I envisioned myself sharing inspiration, supporting others creatively, pouring my art and heart into the world, and leading and motivating others.
From a very young age, I was intrigued and had an unquenchable appetite for the "inner world".
The books that I gravitated towards were usually in the personal development and self-help aisles. I was just so positively fascinated by that little voice inside that never left me. I would spend hours creating manifestation boards, journals, and creative diaries filled with my innermost desires and powerful future dreams.
It's been a wild ride, and yet I feel it has truly just begun! I find myself, over 20 years later amid a mixture of professional successes, quite a few personal belly flops, and vivid memories of navigating a young womanhood peppered with grown-up turmoil and, at times, shattering emotional pain, living nearly my exact version of my original visualizations.
In my speaking, writing, blogging, and coaching, I share my journey of what happens when you completely surrender...when you just lean back and trust.. I am committed to exposing my powerful and thought-driven path, steps, and experiences all along the way when it comes to trusting universal support and love, letting go of the steering wheel, being present loving what is, and stretching myself into the places I am willing and wanting to grow into next.
I believe that often we are just a thought and a breath away from truly identifying and harnessing our inner wisdom and that it's okay for every single one of us to take a breath... and just try softer.
