As you may or may not know, I have been coaching people in expanding
into an abundant life by connecting to their truth inside. I apply aspects of the Universal Law of
Attraction with the Spiritual Principles of Abundance.
A few weeks ago I read Denise’s Lucky Bitch book and I was surprised
about how much amazing information was displayed in that sassy blue book! I’ve applied a few things in my life and I
saw instant results! I contacted her and thanked her for her awesome book, and
we started an ongoing relationship, that eventually led to asking her to coach
me in one specific aspect of my life that needed a broader perspective: my
business. I was so grateful for having
had Denise sharing her expertise with me, even though I work in a very similar
field as her!
In one hour, Denise shared with me technical aspects that will take my
business to the next level and some philosophical aspects that gave me clarity
and peace. I felt calm and empowered after her session!
What got my attention is that Denise knows that I also coach people in
manifesting abundance, and she never took that as a threat to her own business.
Instead, she opened up, taught me new things, guided me gently, and even
invited me to write for her blog! So
Voila’, here I am!
Denise understands the core of manifesting abundance, which is:
THERE IS ENOUGH PIE FOR EVERYONE!
I know this in my own heart, and it felt so awesome to find another
woman that also supports this vision. It is so different from what I had been
experiencing during the last five years of my life.
During those years, I had dedicated myself to surf the biggest waves on
the planet, traveling from place to place, chasing big swells.
If you don’t know much about surfing, the sport is a male dominated
arena. If you look into the small niche of the modality of big wave surfing,
you will be surprised to find a handful of women doing it at a solid
level. I was one of them. I was obsessed
with overcoming my limits, facing huge challenges and feeling one with nature.
All I wanted to do was to surf big waves as much as possible.
The surfing industry is tight and there are few sponsors for the men in
big wave surfing, let alone for the women. I am one of very few women in the
world that actually gets paid to travel chasing big waves. I worked my butt off to get there, with a
discipline that Rocky would have been proud of. I took my career very
seriously, (I wish I knew how to have fun with it at the time!) and I was
blessed to manifest in my life the dream that I wanted to live: to have the
funds to travel all around the world surfing big waves.
There were good times and bad times, as in anything in life. There were
AMAZING rides and very dark life-or-death episodes along the way. The sport had
a competitive edge that helped me push myself into higher realms, but at the
same time it burned me out emotionally.
Fast -forward tree years, the competition got old for me. Fighting for
a place in the spotlight got old. I decided to step aside and re-focus in my
surfing and my life.
I made the decision to change the way I was operating and chose Spirit
instead of my ego mind. I wanted to go back to the basics: surfing for the pure
love of it. Not surfing for the fame, the money or the recognition from our
peers, but surfing from my heart and my soul.
I am still in this journey and had never felt as free before. Now I
have the best of both worlds: an amazing sponsor (Patagonia), that supports me
in spreading the joy for the lifestyle of surfing throughout the world, and
myself in alignment: surfing without pressure, without competing, or comparing.
Fast forward once again, I am working in the self-development business,
growing my company, and meeting amazing women along the way. In the mix, there
was Denise. She was open, available, ready to share, standing in her truth. She
has taught me a new way that women can support each other. She is rooting for
I am learning that when we are in co-operation with each other, we can
move forward at the fastest pace. When we are in competition with each other,
we are not trusting in the abundance that is there for us.
I am so grateful for being today in this stage of my life. I am learning
from other women entrepreneurs and discovering the joy and sensibility of the
