Quantum Success: 7 Essential Laws for a Thriving, Joyful and Prosperous Relationship with Work and Money
Releases on September 25, 2018, through Enliven, a division of Simon & Schuster.
Your relationship with work and money is a living, breathing, evolving manifestation that has the capacity to contract, wither and die – or to grow, blossom, expand and thrive – in response to the attention you offer it. In the same way that a child, a lover, a pet or even a houseplant is responsive to your loving words and gestures, this aspect of your life responds to and reflects back to you the quality of energy that you consistently direct toward it. This book will guide you through each stage of the becoming of your most ideal career expression – from the first earliest conception of the vision that takes place in the inner world of your imagination and emotion, to its full manifestation in the external world of form and phenomenon.
Whether your vision of career success is one of starting your own business, rising to a desired position within the company you currently work for, or landing your very first job, the energy of the success and abundance you seek is already encoded within you, as your heart’s desire – and you are no stranger to this energy. You’ve glimpsed it, felt it, and recognized it many times throughout your life: You’ve seen it demonstrated in the movements of the professional athletes who thrill you; you’ve felt it through the words of the leaders and luminaries who inspire you, and you’ve seen this same potential in yourself – in those moments when all of your love, all of your intention, and all of your energy were focused toward the accomplishment of something that really mattered to you.
Growing your career into a perfect manifestation of everything you desire it to be is simply a process of bringing all aspects of yourself into resonance with the energy of what you want to create. You do this by first identifying the emotional, vibrational essence of who you want to be and how you want to feel in the arena of your creative expression, and then by bringing the sum total of your personal vibration – which is to say, your thoughts, feelings, moods and emotions – into energetic harmony with that vision. Said another way, in order to create outrageous abundance in your career, you first have to become a vibrational match to the energy of abundance. If the energy you offer in relation to your career is one of anxiety or frustration, you will unwittingly block yourself from receiving the abundance that you seek.
In this book, I will show you how to purposefully adjust your energy so that the vibration you are most frequently sending out is consistent with the success you desire. When that shift occurs, you will no longer find yourself striving for success. Success, in all its forms, will pursue you.
In your book, you make a reference to Self-Regulating. How did you come up with this idea? I was visiting a wolf sanctuary. And when I was in the pen with one of the wolves with a group of others, one wolf, who was very friendly, all of sudden hid behind the trainer. The trainer said that the wolf is “self-regulating” and just taking her space. We don’t give ourselves permission to do this as a person without worrying how others will feel if we take care of ourselves. We need to learn to be like the wolves and self-regulate.
What made you write a book about Quantum Success? All of my books download through me. I receive inspiration in the middle of the night on a cruise ship, or at a media conference, or when I am meditating. This book came through so that I can share my story of how I applied the universal laws to my career and created massive success.
Where do you get inspiration for your stories? From my life and from examples of my coaching clients that I guide.
There are many books out there about Law of Attraction, what makes yours different? This is like “The Secret” for your career and money. It is specific on how to take not just the Law of Attraction, but all 7 Essential Laws and where to use them, how and why so that someone wants to find a job, get a promotion, make more money, start their own business, or create massive success in their current business that they have a guide and step-by-step process to follow.
Do you have another profession besides writing? Yes, I am also a Master Certified Law of Attraction Coach, Speaker, Healer and teacher. I have a coaching academy where I have been certifying coaches for ten years through the Quantum Success Coaching Academy.
How long have you been writing? My first book came out 17 years ago. But I have always found writing to be therapeutic and it was one of the things that I enjoyed during school.
Do you ever get writer’s block? What helps you overcome it? I really only write when I feel inspired to write. I don’t try to force myself to write anything. Because of the success of my last two books, my literary agent and publishers would love for me to come up with other books, but when the inspiration comes, I allow it to flow and I don’t push to try to write when I don’t feel inspired. This is what Quantum Success teaches.
What is your next project? I have a couple of other books that have already downloaded through me and need to be edited. One is on creating desires and the other is on letting go of vices.
What genre do you write and why? I write in transformation and self-help, because that is what type of messenger I am. I am always doing work on myself to align myself with abundance and releasing all that is limiting me. My experiences and my clients transformation makes it into my books for teaching points.
What is the last great book you’ve read? The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer. It really describes energy and why my healing and coaching is so effective.
Where do you write? I write wherever the inspiration strikes me. Quantum Success was inspired at 3am on a cruise ship, while my family was sleeping. I grabbed my pen and journal and sat on the bathroom floor while the information flowed out of my pen into my journal.
Do you write every day? I only write when the inspiration comes. I could go two weeks downloading and writing and then take a break for months.
What is writing schedule? When I am doing editing I will block out times in my calendar depending on the timeline. But when the inspiration comes, I will excuse myself from my family and get to the nearest journal so I can write out what I am receiving.
In today’s tech-savvy world, most writers use a computer or laptop. Have you ever written parts of your book on paper? I always write with a pen in a journal or on paper. The only time I write on the computer is when I need to transcribe in a word document when I have downloaded into my journal.
If you’re a mom writer, how do you balance your time? I have written three books while being a mom. And with my last book I informed my family that when they see me grab for my journal and pen to just give me a few moments so I can receive the download. They are well aware what that means. Being a mom with any profession, especially one where you work from home is creating boundaries of when is “work” time and when is “family” time. Now that my kids are in school and my days are free to work, it is much easier.
If you could go back in time, where would you go?
Favorite travel spot? The Caribbean
Favorite dessert? Lindt Sea Salt Chocolate
If you were stuck on a deserted island, which 3 books would you want with you? Ask and It is Given by Abraham-Hicks, The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer, and any book by Dr. Wayne Dyer.
The scariest? When my son was two months old, he was rushed to the hospital and had to have open heart surgery. He was a miracle. His story is a miracle. We almost lost him, but we applied what I now teach in Quantum Success and the result ended up better than we envisioned. He is a healthy, happy, funny little 8 year old now.
What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done? I left a job making over 100K per year to move to Canada to live with my boyfriend (husband now) and start my coaching business full time.
If there is one thing you want readers to remember about you, what would it be? I am a woman that learned, applied and shifted my life, by working with the Universal Laws. I went from feeling nothing was ever enough in my life, including who I was, to feeling satisfaction and gratitude in every aspect of my life. And I get the honor of sharing the knowledge I have gained with others who are interested in hearing about it.
