 – Janna C.

2) Recommit this month to the spiritual practice of daily gratitude.

So often we forget that no matter how things have gone for us lately, we can begin again….today.

“Today + tomorrow can be very different from yesterday, if you can let yesterday go + focus on today. Today + tomorrow are about your now vibration + you have complete control over that. Look for things to feel good about + watch how everything in your life will unfold to reflect that good feeling vibration.”
– Abraham-Hicks

Nothing is more important than feeling good. It’s actually why you want everything you are seeking, for the feelings they will bring.

But the real secret to experiencing more joy now while also manifesting your desires, is not waiting them to arrive to feel better, but feeling good along the way.

And the fastest way to feel better is through the simple yet effective practice of gratitude.

Best selling author Joe Dispenza states, “The longer you feel gratitude, the more you’re drawing your new future to you because gratitude means it has already happened. Gratitude is the ultimate state of receivership. The latest research in neuroscience shows that when you close your eyes and begin to think about your future and embrace the emotions you are going to feel when that event happens. That you are actually installing the neurological circuitry of that experience in your brain.”

So practicing daily gratitude is not only for the benefits or rewiring your brain, but nothing puts you in a better state of joy, than (more…)

Been Tough On Yourself? 5 Ways To Make A Shift Now

Have you been hard on yourself lately? I get it. We all go down that rabbit hole in one way or another at different times.

But I want you to start this week shifting where you are choosing to focus + how you are choosing to see yourself. (Yes, it all begins within).

In fact, I know if you make a few simple shifts this week, you’ll end up feeling better + you’ll actually begin to light up in a different way.

Sometimes the smallest shift creates the biggest result, so practice this today…

How To Invite In Unlimited Possibilities

Often we can be so focused on what we want, that we forget that we live in a world of infinite possibilities.

When we get an audition + feel right for the role, it’s easy to let our minds become attached to wanting the job.

But when we do that, we are actually cutting ourselves off from all other possibilities that are lining up for us.

And in doing so we start gripping + pushing, an energy that will never help you book anything.

I came across this amazing quote last week from the late, great Wayne Dyer + thought it was so fitting for actors.

“Have a mind that is open to everything + attached to nothing.”

unnamed-15

What a wonderful space to live. What a peaceful way to operate. What a direct line to your own joy.

It’s not to say you let go of your desires, but you let go of trying to control how or when they will show up.

And it in the letting go, you find (more…)

How To Give Yourself Permission To Pause

With modern technology at your fingertips all day long + requests coming at you from all angles, giving yourself permission to pause, to take a break, as well as not check social media (or email) one more time can be challenging.

Our brains inherently want to remain active, in charge, and not relinquish control.

But when we choose to pause, we not only give our brains a rest, but we are also tuning into the higher mind.

Pausing can feel like we’re not accomplishing anything,

But actually, in our pause, our reset, we return to aligning with our highest self.

It is there that we gain clarity + inspiration + end up taking much less action to accomplish our desired outcome.

If you’re unsure about how to give yourself permission to pause, I’ve created an easy to remember acronym for the word P.A.U.S.E. to help you do just that.

The Best Weapon Against Your Challenges

I hope you’ve been enjoying July! (Whether it’s summer or winter where you live, I love connecting with actors all over the world each week).

That is the beauty of modern technology.

On a side note: I’m not sure how I missed feeling 2 earthquakes in one weekend, but I hope all of my Southern California readers are all okay.

Make sure you have shoes near your bed, flashlights and a battery powered transit radio as the very basics of your earthquake preparedness kit.  Here is a full list of items recommended by the Red Cross. 

I just learned how to turn the gas off and the water main off at our house, just in case.  Do you know how to do these things? Make sure you do.

I moved here 5 days before the Northridge Earthquake in 1994, and that one shocked me to my core. (So maybe that’s why the Universe made sure I was swinging on a swing with my kids this time around).

Whether it’s a dealing with a natural disaster or even dealing with the daily life of being an actor, I know this to be true….

No matter where you live, I hope you’ve also been taking time to pause this month, to get outside + enjoy nature, without checking your phone.

What’s Really Getting In Your Way….(And How Let Go + Fly)

To invite in the new, we must let go of the old. (Even when it feels scary + we are uncertain of the outcome).

I’ve had to do this in a big way this year.

I’ve done a lot of inner work on letting go of my own lingering limiting beliefs + the outer work of taking actions that were way outside my comfort zone, in order to fly.

If you haven’t heard, I’m now on the ballot and in the running for an Emmy nomination.

Emmy nomination-round voting closes in one week.  (Thank you for the outpouring of well-wishes + support.  It is so deeply appreciated!)

If you are a Television Academy member, I hope you’ll consider me when voting for “Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series” for my work on Atypical.

This entire experience got me thinking about how we transform our lives and careers.  When does that happen and how do we do it?

When a caterpillar becomes a beautiful butterfly, it goes through a radical transformation process, one that is inherently uncomfortable.

But the caterpillar does not fight the chrysalis, nor does it resist any discomfort that arises inside as it sheds its familiar home.

Instead, to invite in the radical transformation that happens within its own protective casing, it must surrender fully to the discomfort.

The only way the caterpillar can end up flying is to allow the discomfort, to move beyond its protective casing, to transform itself + then spread its glorious wings for the very first time.

Metaphorically, leaving the familiar + stepping into the unknown with its wings wide open is how the butterfly first takes flight.

Ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu declares: “When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”

If we can use this process in nature as a guide for our own metamorphosis, then whenever any discomfort arises, we can (more…)

3 Steps To Getting Better Results

Ever feel like this? Exhausted, not booking, a bit lost or unsure, and maybe heading down a dark rabbit hole of negative thinking…

Even though you know better?
Even though you’re trying to stay positive?
Even though you’re trying keep the faith?

Does it seem like the more you try to do that, the more you feel like you are entering a dark tunnel without the light?

This was exactly the way one of my students admitted to feeling recently + she was actually thrilled to find out she wasn’t alone.

Not only did other actors feel this way, I told her that she basically described my February!

Yes, that’s right. I have plenty of down days too.

I had a month of great auditions + no bookings. I was definitely wondering, “where’s mine?”

I had assumed that the show I had been recurring on (Atypical on Netflix) was back in production, but I hadn’t heard anything about returning for another season.

And when things aren’t showing up the way you’d like, that dark hole can feel like it goes on forever, right?

So what do you do?

I’m all for feeling your feelings + going through them, instead of slapping a smiley face sticker over your pain.

So just know that when you are feeling down, you’re not alone. Reach out + talk to a friend. (Most likely an actor you know is feeling the same way).

Then, remind yourself that tomorrow is a new day + treat it as a blank white canvas.

When you shift your focus, it will help shift how you feel, and ultimately effect what you do.

And as you take a new action, from a better feeling place, the light in that dark tunnel will begin to appear.

Turning Your Flaws Into Gold

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 its 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?

Staying Calm Amidst Chaos

In the rush and noise of our busy lives, from the alerts on our phones, our computers, social media to all of the daily requests + interactions (not to mention the mid-term elections in the U.S. and the holidays drawing near), we must take time to create a feeling of calm amidst the chaos.

Our minds want to stay busy defining who we are, evaluating what we’ve done, adding meaning to events, and then letting us know (sometimes all day long) how we are falling short.

It is in finding stillness within + calming the chaos in the active mind, that your true image is reflected back to you.

It is in that stillness that your intuition is accessible, tension is released, and well-being abounds. (more…)

How To Expand Into Your Best Self: 20 Things To Say Yes To Today

When we are looking to expand into all that we want to become in our lives + our careers, sometimes the path ahead can feel daunting + uncertain.

Our inner critic will convince us it’s safer to stay where we are, or even turn around, then to forge ahead on the unknown path.

But what if all it took to move forward was a simple inner mental shift.

Where instead of listening to the inner critic’s voice that says….

…I can’t, it won’t happen, it’s not possible, it isn’t hear yet, so it must not be coming, etc.

What if, instead, we simply said YES to ourselves more often.
