When I watch my 2 toddlers run around in our backyard, I am reminded of our innate sense of play.
They so purely embody that feeling of having fun, not caring who is watching + not bothered by what others are doing.
What if you reclaimed the “I Am Here To Play” perspective this week? What if you walked into every audition thinking:
As actors, that is usually why we pursued this path – to creatively play for a living. It’s easy to lose that sense of play when you start giving every audition a lot of meaning + importance.
And even though you have rent or a mortgage to pay, getting back to playing in the audition room will help you succeed every time. (more…)
When you watch a movie or a television show, do you ever check an actor’s IMDB credits, biography or representation, compare it to your own and end up feeling bad about yourself?
Why compare + despair?
When you spend time wishing you had someone else’s career, you are depriving yourself of the beautiful life experiences that are actually happening to you right now. Comparing takes you out of being in the present moment. The past is over, the future is unknown, so all any of us have is this moment, right now. The good news is that ALL your power is in THIS moment. Here’s how to reclaim it and feel better!
Ever book an acting job + immediately feel like it’s not enough in some way? Or not get the job + feel hopeless?
Though the source of your frustration may seem like the job or lack of it, your suffering comes from having thoughts that argue with WHAT IS.
No matter how much acting success you obtain, your ego will probably always want a juicier role, a bigger credit, a better agent + more opportunities. (Even Meryl Streep has complained that there is not enough great writing these days.)
And although it’s good to have desires, your ultimate happiness lies in how you feel about yourself today, no matter what is happening in your career. When we rely on the conditions in our acting careers to determine our happiness, we give away all our power.
The fastest way I have found to instant happiness (and ultimately, more career abundance) (more…)
I express gratitude for all have done + who I have become.
I take a deep breath in + feel a deep sense of gratitude for all of the wonderful things I have accomplished in my life so far. I exhale + let go of needing to compare myself to another actor’s journey.(more…)
When you are at an audition and you are attached to getting the job or getting a callback, what happens? Your body tenses, your mind tells you it’s not possible and you begin an inner struggle that broadcasts as desperate or needy.
Here are 4 steps to releasing your attachment to the outcome.(more…)
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!"
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."
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."
