I’ve created something to help you ease anxiety + improve well-being during this global pandemic, and decided to give it away for free to anyone who needs it.
I know there’s a lot of fear + uncertainty in the world right now, but this is also a beautiful opportunity to go within + create more peace in your life.
The Dalai Lama states that, “World peace begins with inner peace.”
Sometimes, in the midst of chaos, people have an even harder time finding stillness.
In fact, one friend, who knows she should meditate, told me, “Right now, meditation just feels like worrying with my eyes closed.”
I get it. That’s where guided meditation comes in.
You don’t need to know how to meditate.
You don’t have to sit in the lotus pose.
You just need to know how to download an audio, press play + listen.
In under 15 minutes, I will guide you to quiet your mind, relax your body + open your heart.
Just imagine if everyone in the world did this for 15 minutes a day, what kind of peace might emerge out of this global pause.
Here’s to knowing that in every moment throughout your day, you have the option to choose peace over panic, and I’m excited to provide a free guided meditation to help you realign your mind + alleviate some of your stress.
This week begins the 3rd month of 2020. How has your energy been lately? Have you been feeling inspired + motivated or lethargic + unproductive?
Have you been allowing outer circumstances + events to dictate how you feel each day or have you been aligning your mind + getting out ahead of it all, before you even leave your home?
To be on a creative path, is to be on a spiritual path. The good news, is you have more creative control of your life than you might think, (and that all limitation is self-imposed).
So often we think that life is just happening to us, and we forget that our energy plays a vital role in the unfolding of it all.
Best-selling author, Dr. Joe Dispenza says,
“When it comes down to it, there are 2 ways to approach our lives: either as the victims to our lives or the creators of our lives. To live as the victim is to live within the limited belief system that everything in our outer world is happening to us.
Simply put, when things are good, you feel good. When things are bad, you feel bad. That’s the polarized world of victim consciousness in a nutshell.
Creative consciousness, on the other hand, is the awareness that when you feel joy, love, or gratitude before your creation is made manifest—& you combine that energy of joy, love, or gratitude with the intent of new information—it is that elevated frequency that can carry that thought.”
Quotes like this always inspire me so much.
When you learn how to choose your thoughts + emotions, you become a master of your life.
And what happens, is you begin to see yourself as infinite intelligence sees you.
In fact, here is what infinite intelligence would tell you today…
You matter. You belong. You are important. You are powerful. You are ready. Your time is now. You playing small does not serve the world. There will never be another you. You have many gifts to share. You have many amazing experiences ahead. You are worthy of all of life’s beautiful blessings. You are ready to receive.
Before I share the one word that can massively change your results in 2020, I have to say, I’ve been so blown away by the HUGE shifts hundreds of actors are making after watching my Free Video Series
“I watched all 3 videos, did the work + IN ONE WEEK, I got 3 new agent meetings, 5 auditions, including one for the lead in a Broadway musical, an unexpected residual check in the mail, re-edited my reel + recorded my VO demo (which I had been procrastinating on for over 2 years!). Wow! Seeing you get emotional is so inspiring because it really shows how what you are teaching other actors has changed your life. It’s changed mine too.” – Julie C.
“Wendy, your words are a tremendous reminder to me of what I believe to be true, but sometimes forget. I am so inspired by how you teach. Thank you!” – Joe W.
“Your free videos are giving me goosebumps. Thank you for the inspiration, different perspective + generosity of spirit. It has been empowering + liberating.” – Sue C.
I’ve been practicing daily gratitude this month, and not only do I feel better, but it’s definitely opened up a doorway for more good things to come to me easily + effortlessly.
I invite you to do the same, beginning right now.
The key for me has been not doing so to “make something happen,” but instead because it simply feels good to focus on the good.
And the extra benefit is that I’m also training my brain to criticize less, find fault less + complain less.
And what has been happening? I’ve had new bookings, been invited to be a podcast guest on one of my favorite shows, and last week, I became a GIF!
If you haven’t heard, I’m back for Season 3 of Atypical, which I’m thrilled report, was the #1 binge-watched show on Netflix last week. (Our show beat “Friends,” which took 2nd place).
This role (that started out as a few short scenes in Season 1), has now turned into a three season recurring role, with multiple episodes, fun story lines, and lots of matching sweater sets. (Can you tell I love playing the uptight but well-intentioned, Kathy, always going head-to-head with Jennifer Jason Leigh?)
I couldn’t be more grateful to be part of a show that promotes inclusion, spreads autism awareness, and is filled with laughs, love + compassion.
In the midst of enjoying precious moments like this..
I heard my late father’s wise words: Take the trip. Do it now. Don’t wait.
Or as Mark Twain wisely once said:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
I had a hard time going anywhere in my 20’s, (more…)
My heart is heavy today, from all the fear and divisiveness that has been ignited in our country + the senseless acts of violence that follow.
I know that hate is taught, since we are all born with only love in our hearts, and my wish is that as each of us acts from a place of love, in all our interactions throughout the day and that the consciousness of love is expanded as a response.
I wrote this post on Friday, and want to share it today since I know we all have to get up again on Monday and make the most of our lives.
I hope it helps you.
So now that the year is half over, would you like to make the second half of 2019 even better than the first half?
If you set a goal in January + haven’t come close to achieving it, here’s why + how to change it.
So often we have the best intentions + just before we go to take action, we allow fear to stop us.
We rethink, review, + even remind ourselves of all of the reasons, it might not work.
Or we procrastinate + we put off what we know would be good for us, until another day.
From eating right, to exercising, to reaching out to someone, to diving into a creative project, often we associate more pain with actually doing a task, then the pleasure we will feel once it’s finished.
This is all rooted in small thinking from the lower mind, which is always ego-based + born out of fear or judgment.
Your ego doesn’t want you to change your lifestyle, test the waters, move outside of your comfort zone + alter anything on any level.
But the higher mind is rooted in love.
The higher mind is rooted in expansion.
The higher mind is limitless + sees the big picture long before you do.
So, maybe it’s time to ask yourself? Am I operating from a place of love or fear?
Most people don’t know how to operate from the higher mind, which is always accessible to you + done easily through guided meditation.
The expanded mind, your highest self, not only knows what is possible for you, but planted the idea in the first place to call you forward, to expand you and to invite you to where you want to go.
You can get to where you want to go, but it requires (more…)
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."
Community, iCarly, Good Luck Charlie
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 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."
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!”
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."
