35-Day Letters from Me Boot Camp for Women

The 35-Day Letters from a Better Me Boot Camp for Women is a 35-day inner journey to empowered living. There will be live streams, videos, required participation activities, and suggested activities. How much you want to get out of this boot camp all depends on what you want to put into it. The first boot camp live stream will be at 9:00AM EST on May 31, 2022 in a private Facebook group, but you can show up any time you want on that day.

This boot camp is for women who are tired of the roller coaster of constantly reacting to what other people are doing and/or not doing and are ready to commit to living differently: one thought, belief, action, and response at a time.

In the boot camp we will be using the book, LETTERS FROM A BETTER ME: How Becoming an Empowered Woman Transforms the World. The book must be purchased from an authorized book retailer in paperback or e-book format. The book needs to be completed before Day 1 of boot camp. We will go in deep.

Part I: “Blinders Off” is all about becoming aware of our own thoughts, beliefs, actions, and reactions that are holding us back.

Part II: “Acceptance of What Is” is about taking responsibility and accountability for our choices without using self-abuse, blame, guilt, or shame.

Part III: “Taking Charge as an Empowered Woman” is about taking those thought, belief, and action steps to breaking old patterns and living an empowered life now. This is where we get a CLEAR vision of how we project and represent what we stand for and get to know the AMAZING women we REALLY ARE and ALWAYS were.

We will be working through what The Ohio State University calls the “9 Dimensions of Wellness” to help us figure out where our blocks to wellness are. We will look at our emotional, physical, spiritual, social, creative, intellectual, occupational, environmental, and financial belief systems, because as I say, “Our perspectives are our power or our prison.”

This is a BOOT CAMP. It takes daily participation and a commitment to ourselves. We are worth the love, commitment, loyalty, compassion, honesty, and care that we give to others. I want the women in this group to give themselves the love they deserve.

What You Need to Participate:

1. Like and follow the From A Loving Place Facebook page (I have to be able to reach out to you).

2. Purchase LETTERS FROM A BETTER ME in either paperback and e-book format. You can go to FromALovingPlace.com/book for some purchasing options, or go to your favorite bookstore to see if they can order you a copy.

3. Mark “Going” on Event page and Type “DONE” in the event comments and/or in messenger when you’ve purchased the book. I will give you instructions on how to email me the receipt. I will give you the invitation to the private Facebook Group beginning on 4/9/22 (this is a VERY special date to me and I will tell you why in the group on that day).

4. Join the group and READ THE BOOK between 4/9-5/31/22. In the group you will introduce yourself. You are free to ask me questions about the book in this time period. I will be posting helpful information to make sure you get the most out of it all before the boot camp even begins.

5. Participate daily for the time period of the boot camp, which is from 5/31-7/4/22 (YES a day representing FREEDOM). Minimum participation will be around 15-20 minutes, because if you can’t give yourself that, this is the WRONG place for you.

6. Show respect, compassion, and kindness to other people in the group. No criticizing others! No blaming, shaming, verbal attacks, or abuse of any kind will be tolerated. We are taking ownership of our own choices here. If you are not ready to do that, this is not the group for you.

7. Come ready to do the work. Get a notebook and be ready to write, process, and work through some tough stuff. Some of this will be challenging, and that is a big reason I need to make sure the environment is a safe place for all of the participants. No participant will have to share anything with the group that makes her uncomfortable. The required work in the group that others will see is the FEEL GOOD stuff.

Participants will have access to prizes, opportunities, and discounts for both individual and small group services throughout the boot camp.

I know that whoever shows up ready to work is who is meant to be here will be. Whether it is 1 person or 100, I’m ready to work along side each of you to help you see the incredible women you already are. I’m just here to help you get rid of some of the clutter that keeps you from seeing her.

With Love and Gratitude,
Rachael Wolff

Do What Makes You Feel Good

When times are challenging and we are fighting to get out of bed, it’s hard to remember the importance of doing what makes us feel good. Here’s your reminder!

I recently needed this reminder even though I heard it from my inner voice, family, and trusted friends. It just wasn’t getting through because I was energetically stuck in a story of I’m not doing enough. I was blocked from connecting, receiving, and absorbing.

For those who feel like they are stuck or spiraling, here is your reminder to do what makes you feel good—body, mind, and soul. We are creating more of the energy we are in. If we don’t like the energy we are creating more of, we need to break the cycle and do, think, feel, and believe something different.The simplest way to do this is to do what makes us feel good.

Let me clarify: when I’m referring to doing what makes us feel good body, mind, and soul, it means what we are doing benefits our bodies, minds, and souls. This means things that are not healthy for us aren’t considered what makes us feel good. Connecting to others from a loving place feels good. Stretching our bodies feels good. Connecting to Spirit without guilt or shame feels good. Eating healthy foods feels good to our bodies. Drinking a lot of water feels good to our organs. I hope that gives you a good idea of what I’m referring to here. Doing things that give us emotional and/or physical hangovers, don’t make us feel good.

Those experiences are necessary for our growth and emotional hangover is where I will begin.

One day, I prayed a very desperate prayer for clarity. I asked for a clear path out of feeling the way I was. I was in such a spiral that I couldn’t even pull out the exact feelings I was feeling or why. A series of events happened just after I prayed, which led me to text Kiersten Parsons Hathcock, author of the upcoming memoir, Little Voices. She is a dear friend and was there to lead me to the help I needed. She sent me to an Intuitive Reader named Cynthia Spiece.

Cynthia reminded me that the way out of my funk was to do what feels good. I had been getting this message for awhile, but I just kept blocking myself from doing the things that made me feel good like reading, stretching, drinking water, dancing, helping others through creating programs, going to watch sunsets, taking nature walks, meditating, connecting with loved ones, etc.

I was putting so much pressure on myself to be and do more than I was that I froze. Making the shift of doing what makes me feel good has inspired me and lifted my energy back to the place where I feel connected to the present moment in my thoughts, beliefs, and actions.

God has been trying to get the message through to me. I kept asking myself, “Why am I not doing the things that I KNOW make me feel better?” I just had to be open enough to hear and accept the answer and I needed a little help to do that.

Sometimes when I’m in a downward spiral, I can’t see the way out. Things are blurry. When I pray for clarity, and I trust that answer will reveal itself. The spiraling energy slows down. I can be open enough to hear, connect, and absorb the information I’m getting.

Spirit has a way of coming through however we can relate when we are ready. It can be through a person, song, book, sermon, meditation, or any number of experiences, but the trick is to stay open. Our messengers don’t always come in the packages that we expect.

I hope this post helps whoever this message is meant to reach.

War Within Contributes to War with Others

None of us have the perfect thinking mind. If we did, there would be no war within ourselves and no war with others.

Rachael Wolff, Letters from a Better Me p. 210

Letters from a Better Me: How Becoming an Empowered Woman Transforms the World is a book about rising up from within. It’s a journey in learning how to represent what we stand for, instead of putting our energy into what we are against. Living empowered is not a defensive action we take. It’s a way of BEING. When we embrace that: our thoughts, feelings, and actions align to work together for our highest good. When we choose to live empowered, we are fueled by the energy of love, abundance, and peace, NOT fear, lack, and separation. One ends wars and the other fuels them.

Choosing to live in the energy of love, abundance, and peace is a moment to moment commitment. That is why I devoted an entire year of my writing to it on this blog. I needed to do that for me. Since I’ve stopped writing “Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace” the energy of fear, lack, and separation has been sneaking in more often. I can feel when I start going to war with myself–body, mind, and soul. Knowing that difference empowers me to do something about it. I have choices. If I trust the call of my soul, I will be led back to living in the energy of love, abundance, and peace. If I choose to follow the energy of fear, lack, and separation, I will stay in my suffering. I will stay at war with myself, and therefore create war with others through my judgments, gossip, resentments, lack of compassion, and reactions to other people’s choices. I don’t HAVE to contribute to ANY war. It’s a choice.

The only way for me to know if I’m contributing to a war is to be responsible and accountable for the energy I’m putting out into the world. I have to look at how I’m treating myself and others in my deepest thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. It’s through that level of honesty with myself that I can CHOOSE to do and BE something different in that next moment. I have to keep up with my own weeds in order to give people seeds that will contribute to the energy of love, abundance, and peace in the world.

Navigating our energy is a moment to moment practice. We can slip in and out of it based on what we give our energy to. The first step is noticing and becoming aware of the effects OUR CHOICES in perspectives are having on OURSELVES. This is not about any other person and what they are doing and/or not doing. Living empowered is about being accountable and responsible for our choices, not theirs.

With Love and Gratitude,

Life is Waiting

We are creating our experiences of living in every moment. We make choices to engage in that creation consciously or unconsciously. We can pretend our lives happens to us, or we can do the work and realize that we are the creators of how we live.

We will have challenging experiences, but it’s our choice how we want to work through them and come out on the other side. Our actions and reactions are the proof of where we are spiritually, emotionally, creatively, socially, developmentally, occupationally, financially, physically, and intellectually moment to moment. When we pay attention, we can start making conscious choices to create and engage in life in a different way.

Sometimes that way is reaching out for help. Other times, we start educating ourselves to build up a creative momentum of thoughts and feelings in our minds to manifest new and better realities one choice at a time. The possibilities are endless.

Praying for Us to Remember Our Oneness

We are one with the other. When we forget that, we create war with ourselves, nature, spirit, and others. The other is an illusion that keeps our energy separated and causes division, not just around us, but within us. When we forget that we are all a part of the whole, we engage in war. The war is internal and external, because whatever we project out, we put our energy into creating more of in the world…and that WILL come back to us. If we want peace, we have to connect, not separate. That is why my prayer is that we remember our oneness, me included.

May we contribute to the energy of love, peace, and abundance in the world so that it may expand and multiple. It’s our job to stay conscious of where we are putting our own energy, because we are contributing to the collective. What do we want to see happen (coming from the energy of love, abundance, and peace for all)? How would we like to see people communicating their differences? What do you want the outcome to be? Are you projecting that energy by how you are treating yourself? Being one means we treat ourselves the way we want to see others treating each other out in the world. We have to project the energy in order to create more of it.

With Love, Compassion, and MANY Prayers,

Rachael Wolff, Author of Letters from a Better Me

Talking about Mindset on #GoalChatLive

I had an amazing conversation on #GoalChatLive talking all about mindset. Mindset is such an important part of our successes and challenges in life. Our mindset dictates how we interpret our lives. We live our lives according to the stories we tell ourselves. People can think and believe different things, and still be successful. There are some great examples of this throughout the conversation. You can watch and/or listen on the links below. Enjoy!

Quotes That Make My Soul Sing #30

“When you blame and criticize others, you are avoiding some truth about yourself.”

Deepak Chopra

When I’m emotionally triggered, I have to be VERY careful around this truth. I have to remind myself that what I project out comes back. I’m only responsible and accountable for the the energy I’m putting out there. If I realize I’ve been blaming, I take the time to stop and look inward, but I don’t self-blame. I just notice where my energy is off in the situation and do what I can to fix the problem. It might mean I have to go back to people I was blaming and criticizing with and say I realize that I was triggered, but here is the truth of it… I remind myself that if I’m in a healthy space in my mind, I don’t get defensive. I look for healthy solutions instead of using gossip, criticism, and blame to make someone else feel smaller. I don’t have to make someone else at fault to be proactive and make healthier choices for myself, my family, and/or my community. I can’t help others move into a healthier energy if I’m not there myself.

I’ve found having safe people to process my feelings with is ESSENTIAL for my well-being. These are people who let me work through what I’m feeling and transition into healthy reflection. When I do this, I don’t hold the resentment inside my body and allow it to spew out on others. In one conversation, I can go from enraged to seeing opportunities for growth. I LOVE THAT!

I hope you’ve enjoyed these last 30 days of quotes. I know it has been a wonderful experience for me. I’ve even found some great ones to add to my next book, which I’m almost done writing. Three more chapters to go! I will keep you posted and share some sneak peaks along the way. I will tell you this much, I’ve LOVE writing this book.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy holiday season. If you are looking for support from a loving place, I hope you will take the time to explore my blog, which I’ve been writing just shy of six years now. If you are a woman looking for support, I have a whole book written just for you and it’s available in audiobook, CD, Ebook, and/or paperback at most major online book retailers. Letters from a Better Me is filled with exercises and wisdom that came from my 30+ years of self exploration that have helped me along the way.

Quotes That Make My Soul Sing #29

“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”

Jim Rohn

That is exactly right.Since I am the example of how I want others to treat me, how I’m treating my body is one examples I’m showing them. If I abuse my body with toxins, I’m attracting outside toxins to me. If I abuse my body by not taking proper care of it with healthy food, exercise, sleep, and water, I’m showing others I don’t value the very vessel that carries me through this life. I’m projecting out that I don’t show myself the love and respect that I deserve, so you don’t have to either. When I take good care of my body, I’m always amazed how much better I feel all around. I love the quality of the people I attract around me from this place.

Quotes That Make My Soul Sing #28

“The most important choice you make is what you choose to make important.”

-Michael Neill

YES! YES! YES! Where I put my energy is what I’ve made my priority. I know that if my energy is in a healthy place, life is better; my relationships are better; and my circumstances feel better. I’ve found that when I slip from paying attention to where I’m putting my energy, my priorities get all jumbled up and my stress levels start to overcome me. I needed this reminder!
