Did you watch the Emmys last night? Did it inspire you or leave you feeling dejected? Well, today is a new day + I have 2 important questions for you…
1) Who won Best Supporting Actress In A Drama Series? Yeah, I just turned it off, and I’d have to Google it to be sure.
2) When’s the last time you thought a loving thought about yourself?
Last time you booked a job? When you had a great audition? After positive feedback at a callback?
I’m hoping, it was seconds ago.
If the Emmys had you comparing + despairing, then you can use these 9 thoughts as a beginner’s guide to loving yourself while pursuing your acting career. (Instead of waiting for the next booking (or an Emmy nomination) to do so.)
When you begin to flow loving thoughts your way every day, often they open up a waterfall of emotions that have been pushed down or locked away.
See what happens when you allow these 9 loving thoughts to touch your heart.
Whichever one resonates with you the most, is probably the one you most needed to hear (or tell yourself).
Repeat them out loud to yourself + see what happens. (more…)
Do you find yourself becoming obsessed with “Why” questions, lately?
Asking yourself…. Why aren’t I getting more opportunities? Why aren’t I further along in my career?
Well, today, not only do I want you to know that you are not alone in thinking these thoughts, but that there’s actually a way to go from feeling stuck in lack to becoming limitless.
How do I know? Well, I’ve been there many times myself and the way out is always the same.
And this month, I interviewed Bad Moms actress, Christina DeRosa, on how she was becoming obsessed with these “why” questions and how she transformed her life + her career in just the last 3 months.
I was thrilled to hear that Christina began making radical inner shifts through the help of my Spotlight Club and the new mindset tools I create each month specifically for actors.
“Since joining Spotlight + listening to your monthly audios, things have shifted. After a really anemic pilot season, I stopped focusing on the lack and limitation of the opportunities I wasn’t receiving and started to take quantum leaps in my producing career. I am now receiving an Executive Producer credit on a feature film starring Victoria Pratt. Then, I booked a supporting lead in a movie, straight to offer. Your Spotlight audios + journal are helping me improve my quality of life and
live out my mission. Thank you!” – Christina DeRosa Actress/Producer Bad Moms, Blackish, Devious Maids
My 5-year-old son loves to dance. And I love to make playlists to inspire his love of music and funky moves.
After listening to Fifth Harmony’s “Baby I’m Worth It” several times, (no, I haven’t shown him the video yet!) he literally said to me one day, “Mommy, if anyone at kindergarten be’s mean to me and says I am not amazing, I’m just gonna tell them, ‘Baby, I’m worth it.‘”
This stopped me in my tracks.
Not only was his misuse of the English language something I’ll miss one day (Yes, “be’s” will become “is”) but I love that at 5-years-old, he knows that if someone says something mean to him, it is simply not true.
It defies law. It defies what he knows in his soul.
That’s because we are all born knowing We are valuable. We are worthy. We are deserving.
Yes. Let’s remind ourselves again, as adults….anything that goes against that knowing is a lie you were taught.
Isn’t it amazing what lies we pick up on during childhood + believe to be true?
I BOOKED THE JOB! LISTENING TO CREATING POWERFUL AUDITIONS MADE A DIFFERENCE!
"Been listening to your "Creating Powerful Auditions" mp3 daily since purchasing about a week ago. Listened to it on the way to an audition...took a few moments before leaving my car to do the visualizations. I walked into the audition room feeling totally empowered, feeling light. I booked the job. I feel your album made a difference. Thank you, Wendy."
I BOOKED TWO ACTING GIGS IN THE SAME WEEK BECAUSE I HAD HER CD ON REPEAT!
"I listen to Wendy's guided meditations pretty much every chance I get. I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have her amazing voice in my ear keeping me empowered, inspired + in the right mental space to persevere day in and day out. I booked two acting gigs in the same week because I had Wendy's Creating Powerful Auditions album on repeat. Thank you WENDY for your positivity + light!"
YOUR CREATION IS...VERY POWERFUL, IT CALMED ME, PREPARED ME & FOCUSED ME + I BOOKED JOBS.
"Since I began using your guided meditations I have now, in only a few months, booked up an entire year of work. Your creation is truly a blessing + very powerful. Before every audition I have done recently I have listened to at least 3 of your tracks and it has calmed me, prepared me and focused me."
I'VE TURNED A SLOW STREAK INTO A BOOKING STREAK AND I FEEL REALLY EMPOWERED.
"Wendy is so generous with her knowledge and understanding of the deeper, inside work that goes into living a healthy, happy, well balanced actor life. Her daily inspirations mean so much to me...and I'm grateful for the custom guided meditation she wrote for me. I've turned a slow streak into a booking streak & I feel really empowered."

YOUR AFFIRMATIONS ALLOWED ME TO STEP OUT OF THE FEAR AND BE PRESENT IN THE ROOM.
"I just returned from an audition after listening to your guided meditations. Your affirmations allowed me to step out of the fear and be present in the room. As I waited for my audition I envisioned the session being successful and feeling empowered afterward. And it was and I did."
SINCE LISTENING TO YOUR GUIDED MEDITATIONS, I BOOKED 2 FEATURE FILMS
"I bought Creating Powerful Auditions and I listen to it every morning. "Empowering Myself" is my absolute favorite meditation, sometimes I put it on repeat until I fully and truly feel every declaration. Since I've been listening to your guided meditations I booked my first feature film + also recently booked the lead role in my first horror film. Thank you for coming into my life!”
