Virtual Book Tour: Letters From A Better Me

How Quickly Plans Change

As you can probably imagine, my book tour was cancelled due to COVID-19 coronavirus. I get it, and I want to do my part by staying home so that healthcare workers can do their best and hopefully get a break in the near future. I will tell you, I have become very aware of how much I use my hands and how many people touch the same things I do. I’m sure like many others, my hands are cleaned to the verge of cracking, so I added a 20 second lotion ritual to my 30 second hand washing ritual.

Doing My Part

Since my book can actually help people through these challenging times, I REALLY wanted to find a way to get Letters from A Better Me out into the world. Perspective can definitely be what empowers us or keeps us prisoner right now, and Letters is all about becoming aware of where our perspectives are taking us and how to make sure they are aligned with the life we actually want to be living. This is CRITICAL in times like we are in right now.

Virtual Book Tour

I decided to make a series of videos which will include readings, practices, and tools from the book. You are welcome to ask questions and contact me here or in the comments below. Don’t forget to follow the blog via e-mail so that you will be able to see the latest videos.

When we go within, we empower ourselves to make the best choices and stay conscious and calm while doing what is best for ourselves, our families, our community, our country, and our world. I hope you will join me on this journey and make the choice to rise together. I’m committed to find the blessings and lessons that will make me a better human. Embrace the journey, because we are about to do deep!

INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY 2020: Rising Up to Our Best Selves

International Women’s Day 2020

March 8th

A day to celebrate women in all our glory, strength, and empowered souls. A day to look at the contributions of women to our beautiful humanity set inside WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH.

ARE YOU LOOKING DEEP ENOUGH?

Look beyond the surface of what our physical eyes can see. GO DEEPER! Explore the journeys. They will not always be as pretty as the end results we celebrate. The caterpillar journey is just as important as the butterfly. I invite you to sit within your chrysalis and self-reflect. What does International Women’s Day 2020 mean to you?

If we are not aware of the belief systems that make up our perspectives of truth (our beliefs), we are missing so much. We are interpreting the world through glasses that are not our own. It’s time to GO DEEP into the journey of what makes us who we are both separately and together.

CELEBRATE YOUR JOURNEY

What lessons have been the most impactful? Was it the times when things came easy or the times you were called on to RISE UP and be the change within yourself? What got us to the moments we celebrate now? What traumas were we able to use to lift our ability to shine as humans?

WHERE CAN WE DO BETTER NOW?

When I use the word now, I mean it. RIGHT NOW, what can you do better in this moment? If you are internally living in a place of lack, RIGHT NOW you could write five things you are grateful for and you have taken a step into abundance. RIGHT NOW you can write a friend a letter thanking them for what they contribute to your life. RIGHT NOW you can reach out to a business resource to help you deliver your message, product, or both. RIGHT NOW you can start looking at what is holding you back from loving that person in the mirror and start investing ways to fix it, whatever that means for you.

Our perspective is our freedom or our prison, our power or our weakness, our lack or our abundance, our empowerment or our oppression. We are making choices RIGHT NOW. Be conscious of what you CHOOSE. We don’t HAVE to believe anything that attempts to disempower us. Even if it lies within our own self-criticism.

RIGHT NOW you can write perspectives down that will serve you better than the ones you are carrying around with you. If you feel that tightness in your body, you are believing something that is not serving you. FREE YOURSELF! You are only ever a perspective away, but no one can choose the perspectives you are going to put your energy into. This is YOUR POWER—YOUR EMPOWERMENT!

DISCOVER YOUR AUTHENTIC EMPOWERMENT

Empowerment from a loving place is how we lift ourselves and the world. That is why I’m offering my readers a VERY special extra when they purchase and read Letters from A Better Me: How Becoming an Empowered Woman Transforms the World in 2020. Send me any questions you have about the book and how to apply it to your life in the contact section (link). I will send you my personal response in PDF form so that you can easily print it out and use whatever tools I give you. Please feel free to reference page numbers and/or quotes if you want to take the conversation deeper. I invite you to go deep to reach your authentic empowerment, so that you can truly live your best life. PLEASE read the WHOLE book before you contact me with your questions. I want you to get the most out of the experience, and you can only do that with the FULL picture.

START NOW! If you still wonder if the book is the right choice for you, there are samples of e-book and audiobook are available in the link below.

making women’s history month matter

What will you do to make this month bring awareness, growth, perspective, and positive change to the world? This is a human question, it has no gender lines. If we want positive change, the answers must come from a place of love, not fear pretending to be love. Love lifts us all and fear takes us down and separates us. Make sure you are operating from a place that will lift you and the world.

With an ABUNDANCE of LOVE, GRATITUDE, and Appreciation,

Who Is My Reader?

When I was asked in the marketing meeting about who I wanted to read my book, I thought every woman could get something out of it, since it covers romantic relationships, family, parenting, career, spirituality, addiction, unhealthy belief systems, and all things self. I also thought men could gain a lot of understanding and get a lot from it too, because it would not only give them tools, but help to better communication and empower themselves to make positive change in their lives.

For those who struggle in any unhealthy belief patterns, it gives tools to get out. For those who are healthy, it may help them see how their belief systems help them and give them a better understanding of those who struggle.

The book celebrates authentic empowerment. “Empower Yourself, Change the World!” When we see our own value, we lift others up and don’t tear them down. Authentic empowerment comes from love not fear. It’s about representing what we stand for and not putting our energy into what we are against (VERY IMPORTANT in today’s climate).

The marketing team said I needed to narrow it down to the one reader. Who was the one person I wanted to get through to with my book? I had the picture of the exact person in my mind. I want to get to the woman who is stuck in patterns of abuse, whether it be self-abuse or abuse from others, because self-abuse tends to lead to abuse (mental, emotional, or physical) from either bosses, partners, children, etc. We can accept from others the level of abuse that we give to ourselves.Some unhealthy patterns were passed down so unconsciously that we have to dig down to see them.

The book deals with what belief systems got us into the patterns that get us to act against ourselves in our lives and how to change them. There are so many reasons a person can choose to pick up the book, but if I can help that one person see their value and give them the tools to lift themselves out of living a life they are not passionately in love with, I’ve helped to make the world better.

When we help others see their best selves, it creates an unstoppable ripple effect. I would have never been able to write this book, if I didn’t have every experience I did, read every book that I did, and believe everything that I did. I’m continuously learning how to better myself, and I will until my journey here is done. With that, I’m able to continually give others seeds to help lift them as I get lifted.

At the time of this post, March 3, 2020, it’s been two weeks since Letters from a Better Me has been out and a little over that for the audiobook, and the audiobook is still in the Top 100 for Domestic Partner Abuse (link). My heart feels full knowing that people are getting the seeds I’m giving. I hope they choose to plant them and that they flourish into beautiful flowers. Life is precious, we each deserve to live lives we love.

With Love and Gratitude,

Rachael Wolff

A Thank You Note to the Universe

Dear Universe,

Thank you for all that you have provided me with in my life. Thank you for making sure I have oxygen to breathe, food to eat, and water to drink. Thank you for all the miracles in nature. From the ocean to the mountains, the birds to alligators, and the flowers to the majestic trees, I’m in awe. 

I’m grateful for the extremities I have, because I know others have to learn to be without. I’m grateful for my voice so that I can stand up and speak the words that are close to my heart. I’m grateful for my eyes so that I can appreciate all the beauty around me, and see when people are in need of help.

I appreciate each and every lesson that grows me stronger, even if I don’t remember to thank you while I’m going through the tough ones. I appreciate the people who showed me what it felt like not to be loved, so that I recognize when I truly am. I appreciate all the love you have brought into my life and the blessings that come with it. I appreciate each moment you give me on this Earth to live, love, and grow into the best version of myself. 

I’m grateful in my power to choose my words, beliefs, feelings, actions, and reactions. My perspective is my power, and I don’t ever have to give my power away.  It is my choice at any moment to use it wisely or learn a lesson from it. It doesn’t matter what anyone else does to me. I can ALWAYS choose to rise above. If I don’t, it is nobody else’s fault; my responsibility is my power. For that, I thank you. I am never powerless to be the best version of myself. In that space, I am most helpful to the world around me.

 I’m relieved to know, I’m never alone. I see signs that miracles are all around me. Your vastness goes beyond what I can possibly understand. I can only hope my gratitude shows in the way I choose to live my life. 

I commit to doing the best I can. I will take responsible and learn from the times I fall short. I will also forgive myself and others when necessary. This way, I can continue to share the love within me and not have it tainted by shame, guilt, fear, anger, and rage because of holding onto the past. 

With Love and Gratitude, 

A Better Me

Do You See You?

Who Do You See When You Look in the Mirror?

If you see fear and lack, you are living in your own private hell no matter how it looks to anyone else.

If you see love and abundance, you are living your life to its fullest no matter what it looks like to anyone else.

Our perception is our power or our kryptonite. How others view us is their business. How we view ourselves is ours.

It doesn’t matter who sees you as long as you see you. Nothing will change until we shift our perceptions to reflect our power. When we change how we see ourselves, we change what we see in the world. For better or worse is ALWAYS our own personal choice. Choose wisely!

#PerspectiveChallenge: You Have to Work Hard to Succeed

PERSPECTIVE: YOU HAVE TO WORK HARD TO SUCCEED

This is a very common perspective—naturally. I’ve heard it all growing up and I continue to hear it. I’ve heard it as a compliment on countless occasion. I’ve heard community leaders, inspirers, entrepreneurs, teachers, and business leaders preach these words. Some people have a positive reaction to these words and the belief has been the foundation of their hustle to succeed. 

I’ve also seen the dark side of this belief when people work so hard that they forget to live. I’ve seen families get neglected due to the countless hours their family member is gone. I’ve seen people get diseases because of the amount of stress they put themselves under from working so hard.

I just want to introduce a small shift in this perspective that can make a BIG difference in where your energy goes. This is not new. I didn’t come up with this. It’s just not as popular as the “WORK HARD” motto. 

WORK SMART

Working smart means that we are conscious of our choices. We are conscious of our efforts. We are conscious of our sacrifices.  We make choices accordingly. Working smart can eliminate some of the undue stress and pressure from the situation. I can’t even begin to tell you the difference it’s made in my life. Working smart helps me to enjoy the journey and the process so much more than the thought of working hard ever did.  It doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate when people compliment me on my “hard work”. It just means I’m conscious that the work didn’t feel HARD to me, but I do understand what they are saying so I’m grateful for the compliment. Working smart can help us to use our time more efficiently. Working smart can empower us to make important choices in delegating. Along with making choices to add in time for self-care and personal development to make sure our energy is aligned with what we are trying to accomplish with our work.

TODAY’S PERSPECTIVE CHALLENGE

Get a blank piece of paper and create two columns. At the top of one column write “Work Hard” on the other write, “Work Smart”. Make lists under each one to see how your mind differentiates the two of them. Then check-in with your body to see how your body feels responding to your lists. You might just be AMAZED in what you find just by focusing on a slight change in words. 

With Love and Gratitude,

#PerspectiveChallenge: People Suck

PERSPECTIVE: PEOPLE SUCK

There is a difference between not liking a particular person’s choice and the belief PEOPLE SUCK. When we tell ourselves and/or anyone who will listen that people suck, we are asking the Universe to show us the people who suck. We put our focus on seeing it. There could be an unhealthy person making poor choices and a healthy person making positive choices, and guess who we will put our energy on? 

We see this every day in social media. There are people who are constantly seeing and spreading their belief that people suck, alongside the people who celebrate the amazing acts of humanity in the world. In honesty, what sucks is our perception when we believe the thought—people suck

People can and will make poor choices when they have unhealthy perceptions of themselves and the reality they are living in. We each have to make the choice if we will allow our thinking to benefit our lives or cost us our peace. We are only ever one healthy perception away from making a positive change in our life. 

When we believe people suck, we are giving ourselves permission to suck too, because last I checked, if you are reading this it qualifies you as a person. I don’t believe that you suck. 

I believe that each person makes choices that have NOTHING to do with me. Just like I make my own choices on what I think, believe, perceive, and do. No one can MAKE me believe anything that doesn’t feel true to me. Hence, I focus my energy on the amazing heroes in the world. Those are tears I LOVE shedding watching the power of humanity shine through.

When someone makes a choice that hurts themselves and/or others, I want you to take a second to go deeper. This is a sick person making a sick choice. This is not a representative of all the humanity in the world. Don’t let their negative choices pull you down into their energy field. Because I guarantee you, they think people suck too. Someone who is acting in a healthy manner doesn’t try to take another human down or want to be tied to low energy. Their energy field actually won’t even allow it to happen—like attracts like. People making healthy choices process information in healthy ways. 

TODAY’S PERSPECTIVE CHALLENGE

Go on the Internet and look into acts of kindness, humans being better humans, humanitarian causes, inspirational websites and pages, along with acts of forgiveness. If you want to see the best in humanity, you have to put your focus there. 

Have a perspective-filled day!

With Love and Continuous Gratitude,

#PerspectiveChallenge: I’m NOT Where I’m Supposed to Be

PERSPECTIVE: I’M NOT WHERE I’M SUPPOSED TO BE

The belief, I’m not where I’m supposed to be can be debilitating. Instantly it puts us in the mindset that focuses us on what we don’t want. That energy flows out of us like toxic sludge. Other people do and will pick up on it. If it is a relationship, career, friends, community, and/or spirituality we are chasing, we come off desperate and needy. We spend so much time chasing, we are not where our feet are. We miss the blessings that happen in the present moment. We miss the signs to lead us in a positive direction. We may even try to numb ourselves with apps, shopping, gambling, eating, drugs, and /or alcohol, instead of taking the necessary steps to keep us moving towards our dreams. 

We can have dreams and goals without believing, I’m not where I’m supposed to be. We lock ourselves in a box and limit our movement when we let that negative belief sink in. We can choose to enjoy the journey while having dreams and goals at the same time. This keeps us present. This keeps us appreciating the signs and being grateful for the blessings that only can be seen when we stay PRESENT!

We aren’t and can’t be present while believing, I’m not where I’m supposed to be. We resist the moment with that very thought. 

TODAY’S PERSPECTIVE CHALLENGE

  1. Get in front of the mirror and say, “I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be in this moment.” Repeat it, write it down, and repeat it some more. 
  2. Right down your goals and dreams—be specific and stay positive. No attachments to the negative (i.e. I don’t want to be poor. I don’t want an abusive relationship).  I want to be and feel abundant in every way. I want a healthy relationship. If these are things you want, go within them and be as specific as you can. 
  3. Make the most out of the moment you are in. What can you do right now to move you in a positive direction? It can be as simple as writing down three things you are grateful for, because abundant living starts with gratitude. If you are not appreciating what you already have, you will NEVER be abundant no matter how much you have. 

Have a perspective-filled day!

Love or Fear: The Straw-Hole Experiment

Over a decade ago, my friend Sarah gave me this image of us having a straw-holed vision of what is going on. A few years later, I took that image a step further and used it to create a visual example in a group project about the power of where we put our focus.  I’ve used this example in my 90-Day A Better Me Series and now I want to bring it to you. 

WHAT YOU NEED TO CONDUCT EXPERIMENT

Whether you use a metal straw or plastic straw, your hand to make a straw-sized hole, or the zoom feature on your phone, use what you have in front of you. The power of this experiment comes from doing it. 

DIRECTIONS

I want you to take out whatever you’re using and look at the two images below. Start off as close as you can on the image of your choice then slowly pull back.

ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS

  • Which image did you find yourself focusing on from the closer positioning?
  • What word was the center of your focus?
  • How much could you see around where you put your focus?
  • How much did you have to zoom in to see each and every word in the image?
  • Could you see the other image at all when your focus was on reading the words?
  • Could you focus on both images at the same time?

PULLING BACK TO GAIN PERSPECTIVE

  • How much more could you see?
  • Where was your focus?
  • Which words are you continuing to focus on?
  • Could you focus on both images at the same time?
  • Which image pulls your focus in?
  • How much could you see around where you put your focus?

IN CONCLUSION

No matter what we are looking at in our lives, we only have a very small view of the big picture. If we are focused on love/ hope it’s harder to focus on fear/ lack and vice versa.

The best we can do for ourselves and the world around us is try to pull our straw back from whatever we are focusing on to see a slightly bigger picture, then move the straw around to gain perspective on what we haven’t looked at and/or don’t understand. 

Once we gain the perspective, we can put so much more wisdom into where we choose to put our attention. 

We will never have a full picture view on anything in life. We can simply create perspectives of truth from whatever we are focusing our attention on.  Those perspectives will be based in love or fear, never both at the same time. Whichever we choose will create the straw-holed view of our focus, which we will be how we view our reality.

With Love and Gratitude,
