Happy April! Happy Spring! Are you ready for a new beginning?
Are you ready to really step into the spotlight in your life + your career?
What does it take to truly shine like the brightest star?
From images we see on social media or in magazines, it often looks like perfection + flawlessness.
But if we are to tell stories that reflect humanity, then flawlessness and perfection are not a true reflection of who we really are.
There are many other stories that needs to be told.
So what if stepping into the spotlight in your life + career, meant stepping up + owning your imperfections and your flaws, not waiting to be ready or perfect or flawless, but showing up + rising up in a way that lets others see the real you…now?
What if the way was through the consciousness of love, where there are no limits?
In the Japanese culture broken objects are often repaired with gold. The flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object’s history, which adds to it’s beauty.
What if stepping into the spotlight meant taking all the flaws that you might try to hide (or the parts of you that may feel broken) and instead you loved them, revealed them + celebrated them?
A short and sweet reminder that you are so much more than your career and your latest credits.
You play many roles in your life + they are all meaningful and valuable. “Actor” is only one of those roles, just as “what you’ve done” in your career this year is only one facet of the multi-faceted diamond that is you.
So whether you print this out + tape it to your bathroom mirror or screenshot the graphic + save it to your phone, allow it to serve as a loving guide to end the year knowing that not only are you enough exactly as you are right now, but that you are a precious gift.
Treat yourself this way as the year comes to a close + you will start the New Year off in the right direction.
Pause and read this anytime you feel your inner critic try to define you, judge you or criticize you…
Here’s to a holiday season where you fill yourself up first with (more…)
I know this time of year can get busy + stressful. So I’m keeping it short + sweet today.
If you find yourself cranky, irritable, sad, or overwhelmed by all you have to do (or all you feel you haven’t done yet), here is my Holiday De-Stress List.
You’ll be amazed at what picking one thing on this list will do for your mental + emotional state. Keep in mind, this isn’t about covering up your feelings with a happy face sticker, or stuffing down your emotions with extra slices of pie.
It’s about taking the time to slow down + actually feel your feelings: acknowledge them, release them + let them be heard. (more…)
You may have heard (or seen) that Will Smith bungee jumped out of a helicopter over the Grand Canyon on his 50th birthday. Just before jumping he said, “Anytime I’m scared of something, I feel compelled to attack it.”
His words and actions have always inspire me.
Doing the things that have scared me over the years have definitely expanded my life in wonderful ways.
One of my favorite truth bombs he shared was this: You can’t experience the joy that is intended for you in life if you don’t go. Don’t hesitate. Commit. So what gets in most people’s way of going for the life (and career) that they want? (more…)
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 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 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 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 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."
