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,

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

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.

A Mom’s Tale: Reflections from the Heart

This past Saturday was my daughter’s first high school Homecoming dance. I don’t know if it is because of our recent experience of running from the gun, recognizing how fast time flies, and/or feeling for people like the Guttenbergs and Gabby Petito’s family (and so many families like them) who never get to see their little girls again, but I’ve been feeling super sentimental through this entire experience.

If you know my writings, you know that my journey is about figuring out how to live life from a loving place. It is at the heart of everything I do. Yet as a mom, I’m not above the struggle of the re-surfacing of old wounds and projecting those on my kids. My kids are my drive for living life from a loving place, and they are the ones who help me see the importance of staying on this path. I’m so incredibly grateful to be a mom and to have the opportunity keep doing better for them and myself as I grow right along side of them on this journey. As I’ve written and spoken about ample times, the moment I found the definition of love and truly saw it as the definition was the beginning of a series of life-altering changes in thought, belief, and behavior patterns that keep on offering me the most amazing gifts and blessings.

The definition (in different versions) is posted multiple places in my room as a reminder (that I’m don’t always remember to follow) to project love. Following this definition has changed all my relationships for the better and has given me the strength and courage to remove myself from relationships that didn’t have this definition at the core. Having this reminder helps me be accountable and responsible for my thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors whether I’m operating from a place of love or a place of fear. These two versions of Corinthians 13.4-13.7 are just different enough to make sure I don’t rationalize my thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors to confuse love with fear. Even if I can’t see it in the moment, I have the opportunity to hold myself accountable when I CAN come back in a loving way:

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

1 Corinthians 13.4-13.7, NIV Study Bible (1985)

“Love is patient, love is kind; Love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; It is not irritable or resentful; It does not rejoice in Wrongdoing, But rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, Hopes all things, endures all things.”

First Corinthians 13.4-13.7, Harper Collins Study Bible (2006)

I just can’t help but be grateful for my kids, because without them, I would have never known that love could be more than what I had allowed myself to experience up until that point.

At this moment, I feel nothing but love in my heart and it is the most wonderful feeling—pure AWE. My hope is that I will be able to carry this feeling with me as I know I will need it in my next moment where I will have to choose to respond to my kids from love or react out of fear.

With Love and Gratitude,

Rachael Wolff, Author of Letters from a Better Me

Heart Wisdom Panel: Fabulous Females

On September 1, 2021, I was blessed to be the guest facilitator on Mango Publishing’s Heart Wisdom Panel. Sherry Richert Belul is the regular facilitator and she is AMAZING. When she asked me to fill in for a panel on Fabulous Females, there was NO WAY I was going to refuse. With everything going on in the world, I wanted to read about inspiring women. I had NO idea what I was going to experience when I start reading the books by the author’s on the panel. With not a lot of time before the panel, my plan was to skim through both books. I’m so grateful that I didn’t.

I started with Shelly Rachanow’s book, When Women Run the World Sh*t Gets Done (See Shelly’s works by clicking on the title). There were so many stories of women and communities of women who either have gone or go out and persevere without any excuses. I knew I wouldn’t be skimming the book when I read,

Within each of us lies the strength and courage to make a difference in this world. It’s my hope that these stories inspire and ignite a spark within you to contribute in whatever way you can and join the chorus of women’s rights around the world.

Shelly Rachanow, When Women Run the World Sh*t Gets Done, Mango Publishing, pg. 17)

Our voices, actions, and responses matter. Each story drove that point home time and time again. I read the whole entire book in one sitting. I’m so grateful that I was introduced to so many amazing women in this book.

Next up, Marlene Wagman-Geller’s book, Unabashed Women: The Fascinating Biographies of Bad Girls, Seductresses, Rebels, and One-of-a-Kind Women (See Marlene’s works by clicking on the title). Reading these mini-biographies helped me to see the wholeness of who we are as humans. What I loved about these stories was getting a taste of these women’s journeys through the good, the bad, and the ugly. It served as a reminder that we each have our own journeys, but there are likenesses in each of our stories that can help us see the human in each other. I knew many of the people discussed in this book by name, but I was fascinated by the details and realness that Marlene brought to their stories. I read her book in two-days (It’s over 300 pages).

Needless to say after reading both these books I was beyond excited to get the chance to speak with these amazing women. They did not disappoint! You can see our fascinating conversation in the link below. I hope that you feel as inspired as I did! I can’t wait to read the rest of their works!

I’m so grateful to Mango Publishing and Sherry Richert Belul for doing these amazing Heart Wisdom Panels every Wednesday at 1:30PM PDT/ 4:30PM EDT on Zoom. If you would like to learn more about these panels go to Facebook.com/MangoPublishing to watch replays and see upcoming topics and guests.

Be There for YOU

Twenty-plus years ago, I wrote my mother a poem. It sits next to her bed in a frame. This morning she felt inspired to read it after a very long time. She shared the poem with me, and she told me a story of how the poem came to her at the perfect moment. I’m sharing the poem here today in case anyone else needs a little inspiration, because I know if you stop to read this, it’s meant for you.

Be There for YOU

As wonderful as it is to have you there,

Be there for you.

As Great as you are with your family and friends,

Be there for you.

As Much as you are needed by all those around you,

Be there for you.

Take time for yourself and just BE.

Turn off your phone,

Walk away from the TV,


You have a lot to do in this life,

But you will always feel pulled until you find time for you.

Rejuvenate, refresh, and balance.

You are being guided and your tender heart is getting ready.

An Amazing adventure awaits.

Be there for You.

©Rachael Wolff 2021

I hope this reaches whoever needs this today. Please, remember to be there for yourself. We are our own lifelong partners. Having healthy relationships with ourselves projects and reflects back to us in the most amazing ways.

With Love and Gratitude,

Taking Responsibility for Contributing to the Collective

I’m taking responsibility for what I’m contributing to the collective. I’m not responsible for what anyone else is doing. I’m serving my highest good when I’m aligned with energy of love, abundance, and peace. It’s not just about the actions I take, but it’s the energy, thoughts, and beliefs I put into those actions. If I do things from the energy of fear, lack, and separation, I’m contributing more fear, lack, and separation to the collective—EVEN IF my actions are what others think will benefit the collective.

What I’ve discovered in the last year of doing the Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace (click to read more) blog series is that doing things for the wrong reasons, which is out of fear, lack, and separation doesn’t serve anybody. The same action can be taken by two people, one out of fear and the other out of love. The one that comes from love is the one that serves the collective in the best way possible. The one that comes out of fear still contributes to the collective of fear. I’ve seen this in the world and within myself over and over. I’ve come to the conclusion that if I truly want to contribute to the collective energy of love, abundance, and peace, I have to take responsibility for when I’m not doing that. I have to watch where my thoughts, beliefs, and energy are going.

I’ve watched myself struggle through some very dark perspectives that have led me to take actions. Even though the ACTIONS were positive, the energy I was contributing to them wasn’t. I was in the energy of fear, lack, and separation and as much as the steps could be good for the whole, my energy wasn’t so I was still contributing to more fear, lack, and separation. It took me a long time to figure out the impact of this on myself and others.

Even now, I’m raising two teenagers whose experiences can help me see where I’m holding onto emotional pain from when I was a teen. I’ve seen myself react out of fear of them repeating patterns. I’m still actively trying to navigate not letting my actions be out of fear while helping them work their ways through this time. I keep repeating to myself, “I’m giving them seeds, they have to choose if they are going to plant them.” I remind myself that they will have to experience what is necessary for their own paths. I have no control over that. The best I can do is guide them by aligning my own energy, because then I know I’m serving them the best I can. I’m responsible for what I contribute to their journeys and that’s it.

When I take responsibility for what I contribute to the collective, it means that I’m going inside to keep myself in check. It’s not about if people agree with my perspectives, choices, and actions. If I know that my energy is aligned with love, abundance, and peace, the choices I’m making are serving the highest good for the collective. If I’m aligned with fear, lack, and separation, I take responsibility for that and do my best to figure out how stop contributing to that energy in this moment. THIS MOMENT is the only place I can make choices to do better.

With Love and Gratitude,
