35: The New Measures of Success

I’ve been thinking a lot about what success means to me lately. I’ve started a business, moved, and completely changed my life this past year. I feel more successful than ever. Some of that has to do with money, but most of it just has to do with how I feel. Let’s talk about that.

The new measures of success:

  • How safe I feel in my body

  • The openness to receive 

  • The resources to give back

  • Freedom of time, finances, & choice

  • How deeply I can connect

  • The capacity to care 

  • How much joy I can let in

34: The Path of Service with Gloria Baraquio

This is one of my favorite conversations I’ve had thus far.

Gloria Baraquio is a Bhakti yogi who leads teacher trainings and retreats all over the world. She came to yoga through the path of healing her own suffering, and soon found immense fulfillment by sharing the practice with others.

Gloria is one of my personal mentors and teachers. I completed my yoga teacher training with her and her Serge Berliawksy of Shivakali Yoga in the beginning of 2018. Her teachings and example of compassion, devotion, and mindfulness have been carried with me since then into my career as a teacher myself.

I love this woman. I love her heart. I am SO excited to share that heart with you. Gloria and I discuss the challenges and rewards that come with following a spiritual path, a path of service.


33: Those Beliefs are Limiting You

Today’s episode is about overcoming those sticky limiting beliefs. This is a recording of a live webinar I did a few weeks ago in my Facebook group, WORTHY & READY.

I also talk about how to overcome the limiting beliefs through building self awareness, meditation, journaling, affirmations, EFT. I discuss how to make feel the difference between love based choices and fear based choices, and how to take action despite the fear.

If you want more help with overcoming your limiting beliefs so you can step boldly into the successful, connected, adventurous, loving, confident you and future that is calling you, join my two month mindfulness and compassion based growth program, WORTHY. It starts August 26th!

Keep it simple

On today’s episode I’m talking about creating simplicity in my own life and how to welcome more ease into yours.

 I used to make life a lot more complicated that it had to be. I second guessed myself. I let fears consume me and stop me in my tracks. 

I find myself relaxing into things more now. I’m more trusting and easy going. I’m more comfortable with not needing to know what comes next. I love consciously keeping it simple now.
Here’s how to create simplicity:

  • Be gentle with yourself

  • Get real about what you want

  • Let go

  • Change it up

  • Take risks and learn from the mistakes

  • Spend time getting to know yourself

  • Keep track

  • Communicate

  • Get present and enjoy

  • Destress

  • Live one day at a time


28: A year of growth: life update

On today’s episode I’m giving a little life update. This last year has been WILD.

I know many of you listeners can relate to what my year has been like, and this reflection is in hopes of you knowing that you’re not alone in your quest for a fulfilled, joyful, loving, and abundant life.

Lots of love, Melissa

27: When you're overwhelmed with Melissa

On today’s episode I talk about feeling overwhelmed with travel, moving, family, and work the past week or so and coming up into this week, and then I dive into the goods: how to healthily approach those feelings of overwhelm.

For me, that means giving myself more time to sleep so I can function well, not cutting back on things that I now are good for me and ground me like meditation or movement, asking for help, taking the next right step instead of worrying about everything to do, practicing gratitude for what feels overwhelming (like I’m moving to my dream town and feel a little overwhelmed by my dream job.. come on), remembering to turn outside of ourselves and see how our situation can help others, and practicing surrender - letting go of what we can’t control.

Do you want success, an amazing relationship, soulmate friendships, travel, self-confidence, recognition for your work, leadership, or whatever your vision of a happy and fulfilled life is?

I do. I want all of these things.

But everyday, a little voice inside of my head says, “What gives you the right?’

This past week, someone else asked me this.
