How we Rise

I have to share this story with you. It is truly incredible how life shows you you are right where you are suppose to be.


As Gabby begins her book launch last night in NYC I am feeling beyond amazing and blessed to be in such warm and loving company with so many incredible people.

Every event that Gabby Bernstein hosts begins with a meditation to bring us all together. As my eyes are closed and I'm just embracing the experience The music begins to play.


One beat, two beat and three I get an elbow nudge from my friend Liz Pfister that came along with me. I'm about ready to scream!


Scream from excitement and joy of feeling so in alignment with the world and all it has brought to me and continues to bring as I continue to give back with love and gratitude.

Let me explain. I have an event coming up in Oct. It's in its second year. As soon as the event was completed in 2018 I began the manifesting process for 2019.


While driving in the car one day listening to the playlist I'd been adding to for event songs ( I strategically plan my play lists for each event I have).


This one song keeps playing over and over and over again. One word keeps standing out to me and I realize this word needs to be added to my event name. In bold letters!

As the tune becomes more clear this magical voice begins to sing and I know this is where I belong.


As the song begins I am so enamored at what is happening that I remember thinking to myself what is this version? I've never heard it sung this way. I was so caught up in the moment that I didn't even realize it was actually Rachel singing! I had envisioned this moment and here it was happening! Rachel Platten begins to sing her 'Fight Song hit. A song about taking back control of your life because well lets face it life gets in the way, I feel so empowered.


This is the theme song behind the inspiration for this years event after all I named it 'Rise to Shine EXPLOSION!' Allowing others to move into 2020 with the tools for living the new year in a new way. If you haven't heard the song there is a verse in it that goes like this:


"Like a small boat on the ocean Sending big waves into motion Like how a single word Can make a heart open I might only have one match But I can make an EXPLOSION " ~ Rachel Platten


An explosion is a rapid increase in volume and release of energy in an extreme manner. That is the goal of this year's 2nd Annual Rise to Shine Event. Creating the vision from the feeling and turning it into a reality! While this is not a plug for the event this is a story to show you how connected we all are.


You see just 2 days before when I walked into the grocery store this song began to play. A week before I'm getting my hair done the song begins to play. When I walked into the mall 2 weeks prior this song began to play.


Not just in the middle of the song but at the beginning. I see the signs as I allow my journey to be guided by a higher power. I know I am at the beginning of something so much bigger then myself and am beyond grateful for this amazing journey of life.


Think about that. What are the chances that this beautiful talented singer would sing this day? This song? What are the chances that the song was at the beginning of the event?


This is how we rise.

When we see the signs, we rise.

When we feel the signs, we rise.

When we figure out their meanings, we rise.

When we embrace the moments, we Rise

When we allow ourselves to be guided we rise.

When we allow ourselves to love and be love we rise

When we breakthrough those barriers that are holding us back we rise.


We have moments all day long that allow us to rise. Then we begin to feel better. We begin to feel


lighter. Free. Free to fly. This is how we rise.


May you see the signs that are being shown to you. Embrace them. Celebrate them. Allow them to show you so much joy they bring tears to your eyes.


Life is meant to love not just live.

Sending you all love! 💜 Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.



Lyrics to Fight Song by Rachel Platten

Like a small boat on the ocean Sending big waves into motion Like how a single word Can make a heart open I might only have one match But I can make an explosion

And all those things I didn't say Wrecking balls inside my brain I will scream them loud tonight Can you hear my voice?


This time this is my fight song Take back my life song Prove I'm alright song My powers turned on Starting right now I'll be strong I'll play my fight song And I don't really care If nobody else believes Cause I've still got A lot of fight left in me


Losing friends and I'm chasing sleep Everybody's worried about me In too deep they say I'm in too deep And it's been two years I miss my home But there's a fire burning in my bones And I still believe yeah I still believe

And all those things I didn't say

Wrecking balls inside my brain I will scream them loud tonight Can you hear my voice?


This time this is my fight song Take back my life song Prove I'm alright song My powers turned on Starting right now I'll be strong I'll play my fight song And I don't really care If nobody else believes Cause I've still got A lot of fight left in me A lot of fight left In me


Like a small boat on the ocean Sending big waves into motion Like how a single word Can make a heart open I might only have one match But I can make an explosion


This is my fight song Take back my life song Prove I'm alright song My powers turned on Starting right now I'll be strong (I'll be strong) I'll play my fight song And I don't really care If nobody else believes Cause I've still got A lot of fight left in me Now I've still got a lot of fight left in me
