I just got back from a great vacation in Puerto Vallarta with my family. Yes, in the middle of October! Between the water slides, the surf break right out front and the chocolate fondue fountain at dinner, everyone in the family had a blast. (Oh yeah, and catamaran rides were included!)
I remember years ago, in my single days, I was so focused on pursuing my career, that not only did I rarely take a vacation, I barely took a day off!
What I know now is that we all need a break. Not only is it good for your body, it refreshes your mind, your soul and your perspective.
So, as the holiday season approaches and your schedule gets busier – remember to (more…)
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…)
This quote got to my heart last night….
“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.” – Eckhart Tolle
I had to read this quote a few times + found myself almost arguing out loud with Eckhart. But…. but… but….
And yet, the more I read these wise words, the more I realized it IS our thoughts, our perspective, our reactions, our wanting to be right (about being wronged) that are the primary cause of our unhappiness.
And it got me thinking (In fact, I ask myself these questions as I pose them to you….)
7 questions to help you shift the cause of your unhappiness… (more…)
It’s easy to feel happy when you are enjoying the conditions of your life. You book the job, you lose the weight, you fall in love, you sign with an agent, you make more money, and you feel amazing, right?
What if you could feel amazing today without needing any single external condition to change?
What if you could feel you are amazing without the booking, without losing weight, without being in a relationship, without the agent, without the money, without all the stuff you want because you think you’ll feel better once you have it?
When how you feel about yourself isn’t based upon what is or isn’t showing up in your life, you are practicing unconditional love.
If you’ve been holding off loving yourself or feeling at peace because you’re not quite satisfied with the conditions of your life, then you are practicing conditional love.
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!”
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."
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."
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!"
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 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."
