3 Keys to the Law of Attraction

Manifest Your Dreams
1. Acceptance - Accept yourself fully and unconditionally
2. Belief - Examine your beliefs. Are they empowering you or sabotaging you?
3. Commitment - Be committed to aligning your actions with your goals or vision.

Know your "What and Why". What is your mission? Find a Why that is bigger than yourself.

My mission is to empower women to be healthy inside out. My vision is to create a kinder and more loving world through my Mindfulness Coaching and Transformational Yoga Classes. Contact
me to schedule a complimentary breakthrough session.

I created my Vision Board in April and wrote down what I wanted to manifest in my life. Since then, my affirmations and daily actions have brought new opportunities, people and possibilities that help me realize my dreams. I became a Certified Law of Attraction Trainer and am helping non-profits with new fundraising ideas and methods. I took an online Social Media Marketing Class, learned Personal Branding with Cynthia Johnson, CGC Consumer Generate Content Marketing at Bazaarvoice.com Inspire, I am taking The Advanced Motivation Program at Brendon,com and will take a P.R. workshop on Monday. I am so grateful to learn from successful people like Brendon Burchard, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author and one of the best trainers in the field of personal development.

I am learning to do 4 things really well:
1. Manage my physical, mental and spiritual energy
2. Focus
3. Be disciplined
4. Learn and grow every day

I am reading and applying The Motivation Manifesto to my practice. You can request a free copy at Brendon.com (just pay shipping) or get it on Amazon.

I got a free copy and wrote my own declaration to claim my own power. Join me and be empowered.

Failing Toward Success


Let's Move West L.A. I joined Let's Move in February 2012 to plan community wellness events and collaborated with many amazing supporters. It was a great experience and I enjoyed being a Let's Move ambassador. As a group and as individuals, each of us wanted to empower our community to eat healthy, move more and take steps to upgrade their daily habits or patterns. Our events were always free and open to the public. Click google.docs/document/report for our story.

Since Let's Move, I have continued to grow as a Health Ambassador. I created Being Well as a Meetup group and moved it to Facebook.com/groups/1922289331381752/ to reach a wider demographic. I continue to blog and be a free health and wellness resource. It's a labor of love and often I felt like quitting. No one reads my blog and I'm not making a difference. That's my critical side but my heart tells me to go on. I often feel like I'm beating my head against the wall because many people are stuck in their ways. From birth, we instinctively want things that make us feel good and avoid things that make us feel bad. Yoga made me realize that discomfort or failure is part of the growth process. Transformation is a challenge that will test your emotions and commitment more than you can imagine. If it were easy, everyone would be doing it. People who continue to grow understand that transformation takes time and can be difficult or painful.

How you filter and respond to coaching is how you deal with real life. If you resist it because you think it's too hard or you've tried it before and it didn't work, then you're setting yourself up for failure. If you accept and trust that it is for your highest good and that it will work for you, then commit to it with your whole heart. Mindset is so important. We all grow up conditioned to be afraid of mistakes at home, in school and sports. Our society celebrates success and frown on failures. That is so wrong. We are taught to act, think and behave in certain ways and few of us dare to be different. We all want to be accepted and to fit in. But in order to do so, we stay small and suppress our authentic self. Yoga taught me to move beyond my comfort zone, to use adversity and emotional pain as fuel for my growth. "To transform into a butterfly, you must want to fly so bad that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar."

Awareness, beliefs and commitment. These are the 3 steps I use to empower women to be healthy inside out. Yoga helped me get that failure is really a gift, a learning lesson. In order to grow, I needed to get out of my comfort zone, challenge my habitual beliefs and be okay with discomfort. I am so grateful for yoga and want to share what I learned with you.

Health and Wellness


Sat 7/22 at 11 am Join me for a free yoga class that employs 3 simple steps to empower you to break free of old beliefs and habits that don't serve you (with regular practice).
RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/free-yoga-and-health-event-tickets-35997814432

I came across this review of the best fitness trackers by www.reviews.com and want to share it with you. I've used a Fitbit Flex 2 before, but found that it made exercising less fun for me. I incorporate exercise into my daily life by walking and practicing yoga. I also like to do HIIT Cardio Strength training and Zumba. I just finished reading Stress-Proof Brain and want to share 7 tips for building a healthy lifestyle with you.

1. Build more exercise into your daily routine

2. Find a specific cue to prompt you to exercise (eg. Write Exercise on a sticky note and put it on your bathroom mirror or pin up a magazine photo of a person exercising)

3. Find intrinsic (internal) motivator rather than external one. Why do you want to be fit?

4. Find exercises that you enjoy doing. Have fun.

5. Be clear about what regular rewards you're getting - having more energy, managing stress, improving your mood, etc.

6. Think about your barriers to exercising and have a plan to address them. If you're unfit, start with a small, manageable goal such as walking for 30 minutes a day. You can walk 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes after dinner.

7. Write a personal exercise contract. Download template at Newharbinger.com/stress-proof-brain

Beach Yoga

I love yoga!

Once upon a time, there was a clumsy, uncoordinated woman who had a love hate relationship with food and her body. She loved food, but hated her body. That person was me. I was overweight but I didn't have time to cook. I ate fast-food and Healthy Choice meals while I was exercising and practicing yoga. After regularly going to yoga classes, I realized that if I wanted to be healthy, I needed to improve my diet. So, I started cooking and making salads. I also love soups and desserts. Yes, I was addicted to sugar and loved candies, chocolates, etc. Yoga helped me break my addiction and bad habits. I still crave things that are not good for me, but before I indulge, I ask myself if that will really satisfy me or if I could make a healthier choice. So, next time you crave something and feel the urge to indulge, pause and ask yourself if doing so will lead you to your goal (we all want to be healthy and happy). I know many people who struggle with their self-image and their weight. I was one of them. It's painful to go through the cycle of exercising, dieting, gaining back weight again and again. I've been there and done that. I broke that cycle by digging deep to the root cause of my issues. I suffered from mental and emotional traumas that I needed to heal and let go of and they were the real weight that kept me from being healthy in all areas of my life. I am so grateful to yoga and all my teachers. I don't know where I'd be without yoga. If you haven't tried yoga before, don't be intimidated. It's an all inclusive practice that accepts all levels with compassion and non-judgment. I had so many excuses for not trying yoga, but I'm glad I went with my sister and though I struggled with it at first, I kept going. I didn't give up on myself and learned to love myself through yoga.

Join Being Well https://www.facebook.com/groups/1922289331381752 now and attend a free class or event. Besides yoga, there are many other workouts that help you stay fit and healthy. I look forward to seeing you at soon.

Natural Pain Relief

As you may know, I am cautious about what I put in and on my body. I eat fresh, plant-based, organic food on a budget. I choose a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. My dream is to create a community garden where I can grow my own food and a car sharing group so I can ditch my car. Many of you know that I have sciatica. I was in so much pain that I could barely move or walk. My doctor prescribed pills that didn't work. She also told me to get physical therapy, stop going to my yoga and Zumba classes, but to keep walking. At that point, I realized that I needed natural pain relief. I had tried turmeric and ginger, soaking in the tub with Epsom Salt and other methods. Then, I remembered hearing about CBD oil and gave it a try. What works for me are Zen Hemp Shot (40 mg hemp oil) by CV Sciences and HempWorx CBD oil by Mydailychoice.


Before I sleep, I practice self-care with the Orb massage ball and take 5 to 10 mg of CBD oil.

Easy Tips for a Healthy Lifestyle

Sip + Sweat with 1987 Juices

Easy Tips for Planning a Healthy Diet and Sticking...

Healthy eating is not about strict dietary limitations, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. It is about:

1. Feeling great
2. Having more energy
3. Experiencing a better outlook
4. Improving your mood
5. Overall health and wellness (bonus)

Follow these steps below:

1. Set up for success - prepare your own meals
2. Moderation
3. Read labels on food packages (calories, saturated fats, sugar, salt)
4. Mindful eating
5. Hydrate with lots of water


Yesterday was probably the hottest day in L.A. Temperatures reached 110 degrees F in the afternoon. I went to a rooftop workout at 10 am and it was already hot. I generously lathered on sunscreen, but it was too hot for me. So I found some shade and claimed my spot there. Due to the heat, I modified my workout and stay hydrated to avoid experiencing symptoms of heat exhaustion or even worse heat stroke. I also wanted to protect my skin from sun damage. Check out Dos and Don'ts of Sun Exposure at http://www.chopra.com/articles/dos-and-don

Symptoms of a heat stroke are:
1. A nasty headache (I tend to feel this first when I get over-heated)
2. Muscle cramps and nausea
3. Dizziness or Fainting

Healthy Lifestyle in Brentwood and Beyond

Farmers Market

I love Brentwood because I can walk to my bank, the grocery stores, the library and the Farmers Market. After I graduated from U.C. Riverside with a Business Administration degree, I worked for Dun and Bradstreet in Hong Kong for a year but decided that I like living in California. I resigned from a good job to return to the U.S with no job prospects, knowing that I'd be able to have a healthy lifestyle and make a living. At that time my sister got accepted to U.C.L.A and my parents decided to buy a home in L.A. My mom came back with me and we proceeded to go house hunting. We chose Brentwood because of its proximity to U.C.L.A, the beach and the freeways. I found a job near L.A.X and settled down to life. Though I have changed addresses, careers and jobs several times, I always come back to this neighborhood. 

I recently came across this Puppy Spot graphic which inspired me to share some tips about
getting fit with dogs. Check out the graphic. I often walk with my dog Sparky to the grocery store and the library. I adopted Sparky from the West L.A Animal Shelter and urge animal lovers to adopt. Sparky is my exercise buddy. We even did yoga together - it's called Doga. It builds a stronger bond between dogs and their "pack" people. I am a proud doggy mom. Parking and traffic has gotten so bad that there are valet services at most restaurants. Another reason why I like to walk. I love the Farmers Market and go almost every Sunday. I always find something new there. I also prefer fresh, organic produce and talking to the vendors.

Join me on a walk to the Farmers Market this Sunday.
