Identity Shifting

Start and end each day with a relaxation technique. Change your brain, you change your life. The goal is a relaxed state so we start to “hear” ourselves.

Observing Abundance

Observe abundance twice a day. Bring in gratitude and positive thoughts to bathe the brain in happiness Gratitude makes the right choice the easy choice.

Creating Your Idealized Self

Visualize your ideal self and elicit memories of when you felt this way. Pledge this identity to your conscious awareness upon waking & right before sleep.


Adding intentions and follow through, when neurons fire together they wire together. Create new brain habits to last a lifetime.

CBT & O.N.E.

Enrich your life by questioning old beliefs and allow the brain to desire. Use O.N.E.—Observe, Negate, and Echo—to turn old beliefs into new ones.

Mindfulness & Meditation

Learn why meditation works, deeply connect with your true self and desires. You will integrate and discover new daily practices of mindfulness and meditation.


Use nutrition to fuel and feed our body and our mind. You will learn to live the food = mood matrix which makes the healthy choice the easy choice.

Physical & Mental Health
