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.
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…)
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.
So the next time you find yourself comparing + despairing on social media or feeling overwhelmed by all you have to do, (more…)
I’m on an out-of-town getaway with my husband for our 12 year anniversary.
We were married on 07.14.07, and as I reflect on the amazing years of marriage we’ve enjoyed so far, I thought it would be fitting to share some of my favorite post about love, life, letting go + the divine timing of it all.
I hope these articles help you to know that wherever you are in your life right now, you are exactly where you need to be and you can get to where you want to go (and beyond). (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
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!”
