Caine’s Arcade: Today’s messenger that spoke to me about TRUST. 

This video reminded me that the world is filled with helpful people, angels who pop into our lives, and miracles.

Trust is a big word for me- I’ve put my trust in the wrong people, places, and things over my decades on this planet. Consequently, I’ve gotten a little jaded and put a bit of armor up to protect myself. This past year has been an opening up of my heart and trusting again. Trusting that I can do this rebranding publicly is one example you’re witnessing right now. 

When I saw this video, it touched my heart and reminded me that the world is a good place. 

Enjoy!

VIDEO POST: St. Francis, Eddie Vedder, and Rascal Flats are speaking to me.

My last post was a photo entry with a hint of how St. Francis, Eddie Vedder, and Rascal Flats came to me with messages for my process. I got the chance to break it all down into coherent form in this video clip shot in the children’s garden at Unity of Tustin. I was originally going to sit in the formal meditation garden for this, but the little purple and yellow playhouse beckoned, so I crouched down onto a wooden bench made for 40 pound pre-schoolers and shot this video from my phone. It took some technical woo-haw to get it to the web… for some reason Tumblr wasn’t showing me much love so I ended up starting a new YouTube Channel “NancitaGo” and yet another piece of web presence is born… 

Thank you St. Francis, Eddie Vedder, and Rascal Flats

Today’s thoughts…the word VULNERABLE won’t leave me alone. This one you have to turn your head sideways to read… sorry about that but with so many options of mobile devices, I’m hoping it’s not too much to ask.

Why I’m Doing This

cow brandA few months back, I had a huge realization. 

Something in my business wasn’t exciting me. 

Or was it?

Was it my business? Was it me? Was it the audience my business attracted? What was it?

I couldn’t pinpoint it, but I knew something was amiss. People around me, those who knew me well, started to sense that something was up.

I must thank my longtime friend, client, colleague, and up and coming intuitive Andy Spyros for her frank feedback she gave me.

"You’re not having fun in your business. I can tell. Maybe others can’t tell, but I can tell. What are you going to do about that?”

Andy has known me since the horse and buggy days of my online marketing life, so her honest feedback was well received. 

"I’m not having fun? Sure I am…" (first response: DENIAL)

"No, you’re not", she replied. 

"How can you tell?" (second response: FIND A WAY OUT- DISCREDIT THE SOURCE!)

"I can tell", she answered. And she really didn’t need to say any more. She nailed it. I wasn’t having fun and rightly so.

It was at that moment that I realized I needed to change something in my business.

  • My personal life was going through HUGE changes at this time.
  • My marriage had broken up after many years of challenges.
  • I moved.
  • I reconnected with someone from my past. 
  • I rebooted my life with a newfound enthusiasm.
  • I was working out after many years of adrenal exhaustion. 

And yet, with all these personal changes I put my business on autopilot.

Andy saw that and very courageously called me out on it.

So I made the decision… let’s rebrand. At first I thought it would be like getting a new haircolor. Sit in a chair and in an hour or so there’d be a new me.

But this one hasn’t been so easy. I’m not sure where to go. Am I a brand? Do I throw out my old brand? What’s this all about. I have no idea. 

The final encouragement to publicly discuss this came from my friend Lissa Boles. Lissa, in simplest terms, is an astrologer but so much more. She’s like an astrologer and a newscaster and a strategist and a friend all rolled into one. And she, too, gave me the message to NOT hide this process as it’s one many of my clients go through. So MY journey through this, bumping into stuff and banging my forehead on things, can actually help others. Eek!

So I have no idea where we’re going, which I feel like I’ve reiterated about a zillion times, but if you’ve read this far and it’s sounding slightly interesting, I encourage you to follow along.
