The Fire That Burns Within Me

Jessica Contemplating in Blue Dress

There’s a fire that burns within me that is relentless and undying. It’s my divine duty, my dharma, my life purpose to do my part in elevating the collective consciousness, to help end the suffering of my fellow human, and gift others with the ability to live joyously and in harmony with themselves and others. 

My intentions for 2021 are to fan the flames of desire to keep me enthralled with and focused on my spiritual mission.   

                         ✨PURPOSE✨

I am committed to my purpose by putting my energy, focus and effort into helping those who are ready to transform and love themselves unconditionally while manifesting the love they’re are dreaming of.

                       ✨PROSPERITY✨

I am prosperous and make more money than I ever have before to be secure, proud of myself and live an opulent life that is exciting, fulfilling, and allows me to be unwaveringly generous.

                          ✨PASSION✨

I am exuberant and experience immense passion while doing my divine work, within my day to day life, and in my sex life. I am thrilled to experience sexual exhilaration and intoxication with someone who’s my equal. 

      I showed you mine, now show me yours…..

                    What fuels YOUR fire?! 

The Rising of the Fierce

Jessica Sitting in Chair

Eckhart Tolle walked onto the Denver stage and asked, “why did you choose to incarnate at this time?”

 

Instantly I knew my answer. I am strong and loving enough to be in this world and do my part to make it a better one.

 

My strength has been tested the last month with the unexpected passing of the best man I knew, my Dad. A month ago I woke up blissfully unaware that my life was about to turn upside down. While out on a morning run I received the news of his sudden death. 

 

He was my rock. He was easy going. He was wise. He was hilarious. He was virtuous. He was all the things every human strives to be. 

 

Amongst of the painful emotions that come with a loss of a loved one. A father’s death exposes deep seated fear that can hide within a woman leaving her feeling vulnerable and lost without the guidance and love of the most important man. 

 

This fear sat within my chest for the weeks following his passing waiting patiently for me to acknowledge its presence. Deep down I knew if any good were to come of this tragic loss I would have to be brave enough to come face to face with this unsurmountable feeling of grief that was so painful I was unsure if I could recover. As though confronting this pain was like falling into an abyss that I would surely slip away and cease to exist. 

 

One night alone on a mountain top where I was safely held by Spirit and my ancestors I stepped boldly into my fear. I opened the door to the suffering within me. Diving into the pain, surrendering to the grief, and allowing myself to feel all I feared. Never have I felt such agony, never have I wailed, never have I felt so close to death myself. 

 

My Earthly side didn’t know if I’d make it through the night and my Angelic side knew I needed it for my soulful evolution in order to fulfill my spiritual duties in this life. 

 

Leaving my sacred space on the mountainside the next morning, I was not the same woman. I was transformed into something more loving, compassionate, and strong. 

 

The fear had vanished being replaced by peacefulness and a newfound fierceness was born.

 

Whatever you’re facing, walk through your storm. Calm skies wait for you on the other side.

 

The One Powerful Secret you Must use in your Dating Life

Jessica Portrait

What are we doing wrong?

Dating can be hard, stressful…  and downright confusing. When we are dating it seems as though we’re constantly questioning ourselves and our next moves. Every text, every date, every conversation can feel like we’re strategizing in hopes that we’ll say the right thing, make sure they like us, that we keep the text conversation going, get the next date, and so on. 

Wouldn’t it be so much better if you could just be you, have fun, enjoy the process and not have to overthink everything? You could say what you feel, trust your every move, and feel comfortable letting things play out without the stress, gameplay, and unnecessary worry. Sounds amazing, right?

The good news is you can easily make this your new reality with one simple secret:

Follow and use your intuition. 

Using your intuition means you let the universe guide you so you don’t have to constantly be navigating every decision.You tap in and trust.

Using your intuition will have you feeling confident and relaxed on dates. It makes deciding what to text easier, assists you in choosing who to date and who to steer clear from—and you’ll just have more fun!. It will also keep you from making bad decisions, wasting your time, and choosing people that are not right for you.

How does one listen to their intuition?

Everyone is intuitive whether you know it or not. There are varying degrees of intuition – some people could feel a little inkling, while for others it’s very strong. Today you are going to learn how to grow your intuition, make it stronger and more powerful to help you have a better dating life. 

There are two major ways you can listen to and cultivate your intuition:

Your body is talking, are you paying attention?

The first way is through bodily sensations. Throughout the ages, society has used sayings describing our intuition as it relates to our body.  Sayings like trust your gut, butterflies in my stomach, follow your heart, I have a funny feeling about this, Something feels off, I can’t stomach it, my gut reaction, and so on.

If you listen to your body, it will give you clear guidance. Your body is either going to say yes or no, this is good or bad, do this or don’t do that. 

We’ve all been around people that make us feel a little uneasy. Maybe the hair is standing up on the back of our neck, your stomach tightens up a little bit, or something feels off even though you may not be able to rationally and verbally explain it.

There are also people who, when you’re around them, make you feel tingly, warm, excited. Their vibe just feels good to you. Your heart goes pitter-patter, you have butterflies in your stomach, and you have an overall sense of peace and tranquility. Think about a time you’ve had an immediate closeness and trust with someone who is a perfect stranger. Perhaps that person is today one of your closest friends. Your body knew first!

Always listen to your body’s messages. 

It is always right and it will always serve your highest good.

The second way you might experience your intuition is through your internal voice. It’s the quiet wise powerful voice that lovingly guides you throughout your life. It can come in the form of a whisper, or a booming warning. 

It’s not the same as your constant mental chatter that’s going on in your head. When your intuition speaks to you, It is both trusting and familiar. It can feel like it’s outside of you … yet at the same time, it is you. 

Your intuition can come up at random times. It can come up when you are specifically asking for help. 

For example, you’re driving somewhere and your intuition says turn right here—you don’t know why—but next thing you know you come across the perfect apartment complex that you’ve been searching for for months. 

Your friend calls you and invites you to go out—you’re tired, you don’t feel like going out—but there’s a voice in your head that says “I should go.” You get up, get dressed, go out and have one of the best nights of your life.  

Your intuition is always guiding you through your life. 

Your dating life is no exception.

Listening to your intuitive voice and feeling your bodily sensations will direct you where you need to go and be your internal dating coach. 

It’s simple: Stop. Listen.

If all you do is stop and listen, your dating life will be so much easier. You won’t have to fret over things, overanalyze and drive yourself crazy. 

Let’s say someone asks you out and your body clenches up … that’s a resounding no and your indicator to decline. Or, maybe you’ve been swiping for about 37 minutes and suddenly you stop on somebody’s picture and there’s just something about them that you’re drawn to even though they’re not your usual type.   

Perhaps you’re on a date with someone, have had a glass of wine and an appetizer—you’re feeling a little tipsy, having a good time and they say “Hey you do you want to have another drink?” 

The second they ask that question your intuition will give you the answer.  The answer might be a flutter of excitement in your chest and belly and that’s your sign to say yes. Or it could be a voice in your head that says “nope, dates over. It’s time to go home.” 

Here are a few tips to tap into your intuition. 

  • Get quiet! In order to hear your intuition, you must quiet all the mental chit chat. Taking deep breaths, do a mini-meditation, and ask the Universe for guidance.
  • To sharpen your intuition, use it all the time and everywhere. When you’re making daily decisions, let your intuition call the shots. Let your intuition tell you what route you’ll walk your dog, what shoes to wear, even what to have for breakfast. 
  • Take note of your bodily sensations with everyone you’re around. Do certain people make your body get tense? Do others make you feel calm and relaxed?
  • One of my favorite things to do on a date is quietly check in with myself and see how I’m feeling. I scan my body for any uneasiness, tightness, and all the good stuff too. If I pick up on some less than positive feelings I’ll go a step further and ask myself why am I feeling like this. Why is there tightness in my hips? Why am I picking at my nails? 
  • Know the difference between your day-to-day voice and your intuitive voice. Your day-to-day voice is fueled by your past traumas, societal conditioning, and personal beliefs. Whereas your intuition—which is free of all those things and comes from a higher state of consciousness— is free of all of that ‘stuff.’ 
  • Here’s how you differentiate between these two voices: Your day-to-day voice comes from the rational mind and from thought. It’s the I shoulds. It can feel bossy, controlling, and repetitive. Your intuitive voice is clairvoyant and unique. It feels healthy, supportive, and kind. It might be subtle, it might be loud, but it is always loving. 
  • Be conscious of these two different voices;both of them serve you in different situations, but trust that your intuition always has your back.

Practice listening and be rewarded!

I can’t stress how important listening to your intuition is not only for your dating life but for your entire life. Start practicing listening to it daily so you can easily implement it in your dating life. 

Let your intuition drive your love life and make the decisions for you, keeping you safe, at ease, and on track. This secret will change your life.

Do These 5 Things to Find Love in 2020!

Header 5 Things to Find Love This Year

Find love and find it now

What do I want in 2020? Love for all of you! That’s why I’m giving you the five things you must do this year to find real, powerful love. These are powerful changes that are going to give you love, peace, and have the universe smiling down on you like never before!

Right before New Years, I was curious about how 2019 played out for people so I did an Instagram poll. I asked my audience if their year was trash or if it was fire. Half said it was trash, half said it was fire and a lot of people sent me DMs saying 2019 was trash set on fire. Ha! 

2020 is your year!

That means that half of you are very much in need of a good year and a good decade. The rest of you are looking to keep that good momentum moving forward in having an even more stellar year. That’s where these five changes come in to play!

This year’s energy has us looking to get in shape, make more money, start meditating, travel more, and of course for all my singles, find that perfect person! 

Here’s the thing: so many of our new years’ resolutions and goals can be put in place with a plan. So why is it that when it comes to finding love… we just hope for the best? We think, If it happens it happens. What’s up with that?!

You have to do the work to get results

Imagine that you set a goal to lose 20 pounds and all you plan on doing is hope for the best. You still eat the same food and don’t work out. That’s ridiculous, right? We make a plan, we execute it, we change habits, and we implement new things to achieve our goals. Why don’t we treat our love life the same? 

Too many of us just cross our fingers and hope for the best. We go to the same places hoping to find new people, don’t leave the house, keep our exes in the rotation, hold on to bad habits that hold us back, hold on to the same fears and insecurities and generally do nothing to change our behavior to find the love we want. 

That all changes right now. There are five things you must do this year if you want to find love. We are not leaving love to chance! This year, it’s different. We are taking the reins, making changes and taking action! Ready? Let’s jump in.

Conscious Kind Communication

The first thing you have to do this year is approach love and dating with conscious kind communication. This means being authentic, honest and compassionate. This year be clear with your intentions, feelings, and expectations in a kind and loving manner. 

This year everything is different

In 2020 we will date with integrity. If you want a relationship, say it. If you have feelings, embrace them. This year we are not going to hide our feelings and desires out of fear and apprehension that they won’t be reciprocated. Conversely, if you don’t want to do something, say no. 

Remember, if it’s not a “hell yes!” it’s a no. We don’t have time! We are done wasting our precious time by texting people we’re not excited about and going on dates that we’re dreading. 

Using conscious kind communication will reduce confusion, save you a lot of time, and create deeper connections. It’s a real relief to fully express yourself (always in a kind manner) instead of feeling like you have to hold your cards so close to play it safe.

Conscious kind communication will create a pathway for BOTH parties to find connection and a love they deserve and are excited about. 

Insecurities be gone!

The second thing you need to do is Let go of your insecurities. Your insecurities are doing nothing but holding you back, dimming your light, keeping you hiding at home, keeping you in your head instead of enjoying your life, it’s unattractive and completely unnecessary. 

Nobody is perfect. Everybody has their shit, their quirkiness, their flaws, their weaknesses. What truly makes a person attractive, magnetic and desirable is when they embrace all of themselves. 

Listen, It’s great and healthy to work on the things that you’d like to change about yourself. But it’s even more important to accept the things you can not change. 

Tell yourself how awesome you are

In my new book, out this Spring, called “21 days to Feeling gorgeous: finally loving the skin you’re in and being the badass goddess you’re meant to be”, I talk about how critically important it is to have a good relationship with yourself. I guide you step by step through loving yourself unconditionally.

I talk about one of the most powerful and easy ways to build your confidence and feel alive: Positive Affirmations. Positive affirmations are mini manifestations. Statements like I am worthy, I am loveable, I am attractive, I am sexy AF. 

Say them in the morning, when you need a boost of confidence, before a date, say them all the time!

If there is one thing you take away from letting go of your insecurities, it is that your perfect person will love you just the way you are!

Feel those feels

The third thing that drives me absolutely crazy about our current dating world is everybody fears the feels. It baffles me! I do not know when having feelings for someone became this pathetic and unattractive thing. But it’s stupid. If we are going to run away from feels, make fun of them, deem them as bad, diminish them, WHY ARE WE EVEN DATING? 

From this day forward, we are collectively making catching feeling cool! Having a crush, falling in love, and being in love all feel amazing and that’s what we all live for. The world makes movies about love, we write songs, poetry, books, we dream about it, we pray for it, it’s what we are all longing for. 

Say it out loud!

So let’s express it! Let’s enjoy it! Let’s celebrate it! Say things like “thank you for a lovely evening, I had such a great time.” “I have a confession, I have a little crush on you.” One of my favorite things to say to someone I care about, but am not necessarily in love with – is to say, “I adore you.” It’s sweet, it’s tender, and can actually be more powerful than “I love you.”

There are so many benefits to expressing yourself. It feels good to love someone, it can open up somebody else’s heart and mind when they are loved and let’s face it- the world needs more love.

Remember these two things

Two very important things I want you to remember: Don’t be afraid to love first and don’t be stingy with your love. Be fearless! You’ve got nothing to lose. 

You’re not special

The fourth thing you have got to do is stop saying “I’ve been hurt before and I’m scared of getting hurt again.” Fuck that! If I had a dollar for every time I heard that…I’d be RICH! I hear this all the time, but everybody has been hurt. You’re not special. 

The person you are going on a date with is equally scared of getting hurt. It’s an even playing field. I’m scared, you’re scared, we’re all scared. 

When you guard yourself and hide behind the fear, it keeps you from moving forward and enjoying great experiences.

The self-pity stops now

If you are a person that says this phrase, one major change you are going to make this year is stop saying ‘I’ve been hurt before and am scared of getting hurt again.”

This idea keeps you noncommittal and keeps new love from coming into your life! This phrase hurts your heart and other people’s hearts will keep you lonely in your house, possibly sleeping with person after person, avoiding your feelings and denying reality.

That being said, If you’re not ready for a relationship—don’t date. Without meaning to, you might be leading people on and breaking some hearts.

So many people fear falling in love because they’re scared of being hurt – whether it’s from a breakup, infidelity, or a divorce – that hurt completely annihilates them because their sense of self is tied to that relationship. 

When you are healthy, whole and complete a breakup won’t totally destroy you! Yes, you will experience some sadness but you will recover and find love again. 

Wonder is wonderful

The fifth thing you need to do is to stop judging and start being curious. 

Stereotypes, assumptions, expectations are all generalities and need to be used with caution. Often, we make assumptions about people before we get to know them and can completely miss out on who they actually are. 

When we judge people before we get to know them it’s a disservice to ourselves, the other person and the possible relationship. We can’t connect with the person and might hurt their feelings and piss them off. 

Open your mind, open your heart

You don’t want to be judged unfairly, so please don’t do that to anyone else. Being curious means walking into the conversation, date, and relationship with an open mind and enthusiasm to get to know the person. This lets the person you are curious about be fully themselves around you. Let me tell you, having this approach to your love life gifts you in so many ways!

There’s no more waiting. You can change your love life right now. Let’s not leave love to chance and make love happen this year!

How to Survive the Holiday Season Single or Coupled Up

Thanksgiving is about celebrating, appreciating, giving thanks for everything we have in our life. But it comes with its challenges. 

Single or coupled up, you deserve to have the best holiday

I’m going to help you navigate the holiday season no matter your relationship status.

Being single can be tough. Heading home and fielding family questions can be tough. Bringing a new person home to your family can be tough…and awkward. I’ll address tips on how to successfully meet your person’s family later on. 

Read this to get your mind right, help you stay cool, calm collected and truly enjoy the holiday regardless of your relationship status. You are going to walk away today ready to take on the holiday and fill it with so much damn joy you won’t know what to do with it!

I’m also going to tell you why it’s actually pretty awesome to be single over the holidays. Yes, you read that right!

Single and ready to merry mingle!

A lot of us get scared going into the holiday season single because emotions come up, and maybe you’re disappointed to be single again this year. You are yearning to finally have your person with you over the holiday season. 

This very well could be your last holiday season alone. Let that soak in for a second!

There are a ton of benefits to being single over the holidays. Sometimes when we have a significant other, we make them the focus and give them all our attention, which can mean we are less engaging with our family and friends. 

This year, I highly encourage you to be present and spend good quality time with your friends and family by being very engaging compassionate and loving. 

How to have the best holiday yet!

No matter if you are really excited to see your family or really dreading it a great way to prepare for the holidays is to meditate and give yourself a pep talk before visiting your loved ones. 

I do a short 5 to 7 minute meditation and then I set my intention for dinner with my family. In some cases I tell myself, I’m going to be calm, I’m going to relax, and love my family exactly how they are. 

You might want to create a mantra for yourself. Something like: 

I am peaceful and at ease 

I am grateful for my loved ones

Or, my personal favorite – I will not punch my brother

Take the time, be present

It’s recently hit me that my parents won’t be around forever and we probably only have twenty plus thanksgivings together. And when I think about that, it’s not very much. Our time together, our Thanksgivings together, they are priceless. We need to make them count.

Maybe in past years you’ve gotten really annoyed with your prying great Aunt Lucy and have blown her off because you didn’t want to deal with her questioning you…but maybe this year you actually sit down with her and spend a few minutes chatting with her, listening to her and just being kind to her. 

Give Grandma a hug

This is the year where you walk into the kitchen and tell your mom how much you love her how appreciative you are of all the time and hard work she put into raising you right and tell her she’s an amazing cook. Take a minute to talk to Grandma about how she met Grandpa. 

This holiday season you are going to show up for your friends and family, giving them your attention, your energy, your love, your appreciation.

Party, eat, do what you want!

A couple added benefits to being single over the holidays: The night before Thanksgiving is one of the biggest going out nights of the year, so if you are single and ready to mingle you need to get out on that night!

Another bonus: on Thanksgiving, you can do what you want! You can see who you want, spend time with who you want, and eat as much pie as you want! When you do get coupled up, you might not have as much freedom. 

So for now, unbutton those pants and have that third slice of pie because there’s no worrying! You don’t have to impress anyone – you can just eat, drink and be merry! 

Warning: sentimental and sappy is everywhere

Be warned, some of us are really comfortable with our single selves. But then something happens – we see families around us, couples kissing, toasting to new engagements, families growing, the pitter-patter of footsteps, all the sentimental, heart-melting endearing moments. 

Suddenly, our once steadfast single attitude crumbles at the sight of our grandparents holding hands at the dinner table and out of nowhere we decide we need a significant other, a house, 4 children, a dog, and a minivan.

Just remember, over the holidays we get extra sentimental but a lot of these feelings are fleeting and you will be soon back into your normal day to day life free of the fantasy land sappy hallmark pressure.

“Have you met anyone?”

Let’s talk about the dreaded questioning of your single status. The ‘why haven’t you met anyone nice yet’ ‘when are you going to settle down and get married’ ‘why haven’t you given us grandbabies’ ‘what happened to that nice boy?’ These questions are inevitable, so be prepared to handle them. 

You know that your grandparents want to know when you’re going to meet a nice person. Remember, your family loves you. They are asking prying questions because they are really curious and want to understand what’s going on with you. 

Single = Awesome

Here’s the deal, Don’t let these questions bother you! Just because you’re single doesn’t mean you’re not valuable. There was a time that singleness equated to unworthiness and people would act weird if someone was divorced or single at a certain age, but now that is outdated and completely untrue. Times have changed!

However, your great aunt lucy is probably still living with these archaic beliefs. So Just understand that Aunt Lucy is from a different generation, she loves you and just wants to see you with a good person. Make light of the situation and don’t let it diminish you! 

Be prepared for anything

So before walking into Thanksgiving dinner, think about how you are going to handle these questions so they don’t come out of left field and hit you in the gut. Think about the questions you could potentially be asked and how you can answer them in a loving and positive way. 

With planning and preparation, you can diffuse and resolve potentially tumultuous conversations.

Your new holiday boo

Maybe you’re dating someone and this is your first holiday together. Hooray! This can be a very exciting time full of all the feels. And you are hoping for the holiday of your dreams. You’re gathered around the table, everyone is happy and laughing like a Norman Rockwell painting. There’s excitement around introducing your new person to your family and friends. You are hoping going to go off without a hitch. 

This can also be very nervewracking! 

You might be afraid that your dickhead brother is going to be a jerk, your grandmother might say something embarrassing, your dad could go stone-cold with disapproval. 

Aunt Lucy is a little…eccentric

Every family has crazy in it. Granted, there are varying degrees of craziness, your families crazy isn’t a reflection of you. You are a great freaking catch and if your family has a large amount of crazy, warn the person you’re bringing home to Thanksgiving and ask them to love your family as they are and go with the flow. 

Have your mind right, have your attitude right, and go in with the intention of having a wonderful holiday together. That might mean calming your nerves by meditating, working out, or doing whatever gives you peace. Relax, knowing that everything is going to work out as it should. 

Tips for meeting a new family 

Go into Thanksgiving with an open mind and a big heart. 

Remember to be kind and have good manners. Being courteous goes a long way. Just like your mom taught you, say please and thank you and be kind and gracious. 

Take a gift! Bring mom some wine, flowers, chocolates…you can’t go wrong with these three things! For a nice added touch, Go to any grocery store with a floral department and ask the florist to make an arrangement for you Instead of getting a pre-packaged bouquet. And while you’re there, grab a case of beer for dad.

Remember to just be yourself, and put your best foot forward. 

Eat pie and have fun!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving full of love, laughter, and quality time with your loved ones. Count your blessings, eat your pie, and make each moment count.
