Most actors in the waiting room at auditions are filled with fear and anxiety. Some of them judge it, blame it, shame it, and do anything to try to push it away. What happens when you reject fear? It grows. It takes over. It stops you from connecting to your best + most present self and bringing that energy in the audition room.
Here are 4 steps for dealing with audition anxiety.(more…)
Do you ever worry that you might be too old, don’t have enough credits, or aren’t good-looking enough to succeed as an actor? Where are those thoughts getting you? They’re probably not helping you get acting jobs.
”I have doubts about almost everything. I don’t think there’s an actor that doesn’t have huge gaps in confidence. I’m not confident as an actor, I’m not confident as a director. I just know I can complete the day.” -George Clooney
Every actor out there has felt doubtful, negative, and frustrated, even George Clooney! It’s what you do with these feelings that determines your outcome.

One of the highest places you can get to
is being independent of the good opinions of other people.” – Dr. Wayne Dyer
So, you didn’t get the part. They “went another way.” When this happens, do you take it personally, feel rejected and start questioning yourself or your talent? Or, do you tell yourself, “it’s just one opinion and something better is on its way to me.”
What if the people the entertainment industry considers to be “experts”, are sometimes wrong? Here are 10 examples of why you shouldn’t care what others think! (more…)
Do you feel stuck in your career? As much as we’d like to blame our agents or the economy for what is lacking, sometimes it’s best to take a real, honest look at how YOU might be getting in your OWN way. It’s time to take a good look at self-sabotage and how you can take your power back!
Here are 5 ways actors sabotage themselves, and what you can do about it:(more…)
How do you stay up during the down times? It seems to be one of the most common questions actors face at any stage in their career, from the beginning actor trying to get agent, to the actress who had ten auditions, several callbacks, but no jobs, to the working actor whose series just got cancelled.
Finding ways to stay “up” when things feel “down” is as useful a skill to an actor as crying on cue, and you will need to master it for yourself (and your sanity), because in almost every stage of your career there inevitably will be down times.(more…)
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 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."
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'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."
