Are you ready to receive (infinitely)?

Happy Thursday!

I'm popping in a day early to share a super special invitation with you.

I arrived last night to Fort Worth, Texas there I will be participating in and speaking at an event called Infinite Receiving.

I met Maru Iabichela, the creator, at an event in NYC almost a year ago. It was the first time I shared my story onstage in front of hundreds of people. We connected in multiple ways and became fast friends.

Shortly after, I participated in her online challenge called "Raw is the New Black" - about getting comfortable with vulnerability, and how the sharing the unfiltered truth is often the most liberating thing you can do for yourself.

Then,  she created the Infinite Receiving movement, and I signed up immediately. The system and her philosophy supports women to shed the limiting beliefs and learned behaviours that keep us stuck and limit our capacity to receive.

Whether you seek abundance, blessings, money, job satisfaction, open communication, respect, hot sex, weight loss, health, travel... whatever it make be - Infinite Receiving supports you to get there.

I've seen miracles happen since being a part of this group - in other women, and in myself.

Depending on my desired focus in the past 10 months of participating - I've had my biggest month in terms of profits, I've received gifts of healing treatments, I've received the exact support system I needed for my physical and emotional wellness, and I was able to transform a "low" couple of months very quickly into one of abundance and ease. I've also applied the principles of Infinite Receiving to my personal life and intimate relationships and have seen growth beyond what I thought was possible at the beginning of next year.

Maru's is hosting her first live event and it's going to be incredible. It's a place to come together— to receive infinite blessings, wisdom, clarity, support and connection. A hotwire to receiving. Infinite Receiving is a divinely inspired quantum philosophy that is as practical as it is soulful and it collapses the time required for peace, ease and joy to reign in your life. And it is FUELED by connection, intention and energy— so there are a few differences with this Event as compared to others. There are only 100 spots available to attend live (worth hundreds of dollars) but you are invited to Livestream the event for only $88!

I'll be leading an hour-long keynote titled "Carry Less, BE MORE" about releasing the beliefs and stories that no longer serve you to expand your capacity to receive. I will be walking the participants through some of my top tools for identifying your big scary secret (unspoken fear that keeps you stuck), releasing resistance, and effectively "calling it in." I will also be leading a guided meditation on getting touch with your inner child and healing her pain so that your increase your capacity to receive. Because, after all, you cannot receive what you do not believe you deserve! (this content I'm sharing talk alone is worth way more than $88!!)

There are top-notch speakers and I'm truly honoured to be sharing the stage with them.

Maru has extended this super special offer to our community and the recording of the entire event will be yours forever!!

You can read all about the event here.

You can sign up for the Live Stream until 8pm EST tonight!

Trust me - this will be an incredible experience for all involved. I look forward to sharing with you!!

To infinite receiving and beyond...


The Antidote To Doubt

Do you find yourself crippled by doubt?

Doubt can creep in many ways.

It may show up as difficulty making a decision, choosing between two options, or purchasing something.

It may show up as a lack of belief in how deserving you are of having your desire fulfilled.

It may even show up as resistance or procrastination.

Underlying doubt that you are capable of something or worth something might throw up unconscious roadblocks and resistance.

You see, doubt likes to be right.

Doubt is attached to the fear-based mind which (to the best of its ability) is trying to keep you safe by keeping you the SAME.

The ego likes to prove itself right - so by creating unconscious resistance to change and setting you up to fail, your ego/fear-based doubt-driven mind can effectively say “See? I TOLD YOU SO. You can’t do this, you aren’t capable, you’re not worthy and you certainly don’t deserve it.”

I see this all the time.

A big part of my work as a coach is to gently shine the line into this shadow that doubt casts.

To create a safe and supportive environment so that my client can start peeling back the layers and understanding what this resistance is really about.

And also, to provide a ton of encouragement and FAITH that a different alternative is possible.

I was reminded of this on Monday while reading the many Martin Luther King Jr quotes floating around the internet in commemoration of the anniversary of his death.

One that really resonated with me and that I shared in our private Facebook community was this one:

“Faith is taking the first step when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

It takes a lot of faith, to give up alcohol or any other unhealthy relationship or dependency that has in many ways served us throughout our lives. It has brought us comfort and soothed pain. It has opened doors and granted permission.

Giving this up for a newer, more integrated, healthier, whole life when you don't exactly know what that looks like yet (or if it's even possible) requires a lot of FAITH.

So many people come to me knowing there is something better for them. However, not having lived this new reality yet - it can be so hard to believe and yes, have faith, that it is possible. That these tough changes, which include confronting some of your deepest, darkest fears about yourself, are worth it. It can be hard to know what life really looks and feels like when the crutch is taken away, the self-medication stops, the liquid courage is removed, the numbness replaced by clarity and presence.

That’s where I am come in - with my own life, with examples of other clients who’ve succeeded in overcoming doubt to make the changes they so desire.

As always, when a theme pops up and resonates with me and I know intuitively that it is what others need to hear at the same time, beautiful synchronicities happen (I call them confirmation that I’m on the right path) and this piece of writing came across my newsfeed yesterday.

“Faith is the “work” in “Light work”.

It scrubs and rinses and steadily erases doubt. Faith stays on doubt's ass: I see you. I dissolve you. I replace you with Faith. And then doubt will pop up again. And Faith is right there: Yep, I heard you. I choose faith. Yep, I know the odds, I choose Faith. And because Faith knows the natural order of things, she says to doubt: You'll probably be back later this week. And you might even distract me. But I’ll still choose Faith. No anger, just clarity. No complaints, just pure, fiery resolve.

Doubt isn’t a failing, it’s a reminder to feed and protect your positive beliefs.

Faith isn’t something you “have”, as much as it's something you do. And if you do it consistently—the clearing, the focusing, the nourishing...the getting back on track, then you become the very Lightness you long for.”

When you start feeling doubt sinking its paralyzing tentacles into you - stop.

Take a few deeps breaths. If possible, take of your shoes and ground your feet.

Rather than giving it a downward, anxiety riddled spiral of thoughts, focus on the best possible outcome. Breathe life into that vision.

Call a friend or family member who you know can help lift you up again, who can give you a faith-booster.

Meditate or pray.

Diffuse an uplifting blend of essential oils (I love citrus such as wild sweet orange, lemon and grapefruit, rosemary, bergamot, and ylang ylang)

Light candles and incense - do what you can to invite in the Light.

Hold, wear or prominently display moonstone, amethyst or aquamarine crystals, which are said to help find and hold on to faith.

Is this sounding a little “woo woo” to you ? Well, maybe it is, maybe it isn’t. But think about the alternative - staying stuck and weighed down by doubt. If one or all of the techniques above can shift the energy and help you feed and protect your positive beliefs - then why not give it a try?

Edit - I realized, in another flash of insight and synchronicity regarding this topic, that many of you will be receiving this email on the day the new President is sworn into the United States. Now, more than ever, as the personal becomes political, this renewed sense of FAITH that something better is possible might be of critical importance to you.

How can you choose FAITH today ?

What can you do to protect your positive beliefs?

How can you nourish your desire and vision of a different reality for yourself, your community and the world?

What action can you take to support this vision?

I’d love to hear from you! Let me know what you are going to do - TODAY!!

Simply reply to this blog post - I love hearing from you.


Don’t forget!! The Friendship Sale is on for a few days more. One of the most surefire ways of fanning the flames of FAITH is to DO something that sends a beaming message that YES, I DO deserve this!! YES, a transformative experience designed to 100% support my healing and growth is totally possible for me!! YES, I can have a team around me to support me to shine brighter!!

How I Lost Myself and Hit a New Bottom

How are you? If you are feeling a bit of a roller coaster of emotions, you aren’t alone. This Full Moon in Cancer, also known as a “Wolf Moon,” has the tendency make it easier for you to “feel all the feels.”

How’s the New Year started off for you?

I realized something this week.

While so many people I see online are “going hard, mapping out their goals for the next year so they can “crush them,” or “killing it” already with their lives, fitness targets, detoxes or whatever - I’ve kind of been doing the opposite.

I started this New Year slowly and working LESS. And yes, that was intentional ;)

Some of my intentions for the coming year are INTEGRATION, EASE, STRENGTH, PLAY and DANCE.

As I neared the end of 2016, I was completely exhausted and knew that I needed to dedicate time to myself and honouring physical, emotional AND spiritual needs in order to show up fully for my business and family during this next year.

What does that look like for me?

Well, since the week before New Year's -
I dance, almost every day!!
I cleanse and nourish my body with the most amazing plant-based foods and essential oils (More on this soon)
I work out 3x/week.
I take naps!!
I swim in the ocean at least 2x/week.
I started reading a book - FICTION, no less!!
I make a point to express love and gratitude daily.
I practice honesty about my needs and desires, even when it’s hard.
I've basically taken myself on a retreat and immersion back into self-care.

Intuitively, I know that THIS is what’s going to serve me more through the next year than endless lists, a packed schedule full of targets, and a focus on the end result rather than the journey.

Make the journey enjoyable, every step of the way.

This is something I learned again last year, the hard way. I stopped enjoying what I was doing. I was all business and no fun. And it sucked the spark out of me.

I was speaking with a client about this a few nights ago.

It was our final session and I asked her what she was most grateful for during our time working together (6 months 1-1 coaching and the Drink Less Be More Masterclass).

She had been working with me during one of the hardest times of the year for her, the holiday season.

Here’s what she said:

“I am so grateful for finally having an understanding what self-care really means for me and how to care for myself holistically. I feel like self-care was this concept I read about but I didn’t really know that it meant for me. So coming home at the end of the end was drinking wine. Now, I know that loving myself is drinking a cup of tea and reading a book instead. I have created new rituals and habits and now have all of these tools that support me in being healthy.”

I then shared with her something I haven’t really shared publicly yet.

I hit bottom a couple of months before Christmas.

It wasn’t the same kind of bottom I had at the end of my 20s, where I was drinking myself to sleep (on top of taking the some of the same pills to “relax and sleep” that Heath Ledger was taking when he died).

It wasn’t the frequently drinking till the point of blacking out kind of bottom.

Let’s call it my “new bottom” that reflects my new reality.

I wasn’t drinking myself to sleep, but there were times that I felt the urge to.
In fact, I was thinking about drinking a lot more than I had in years.

When I did drink, I certainly didn’t drink enough to get drunk let alone blackout, but I did break my own rule about not drinking when I felt like I “needed” a drink.

I felt like I was unravelling.

I didn’t have control over my emotions.

I was exhausted, all of the time and yet I couldn’t get a good night’s sleep.

This is hard for me to share. But I believe it's important.

What had happened to bring me here?

Over the course of the past year, through the publication of my book (ironic given the topic, I know), the subsequent increased publicity, the growth of my coaching practice, the challenge of parenting a toddler, the travel, the moving between two countries and back this summer…

I had stopped taking care of myself.

And while for my recent client, self-care and self-love meant tea and reading a book, for me - it’s dancing and being in my body. I had stopped doing that and as such, was denying myself the very thing I needed to nourish my soul.

As soon as I started prioritizing dance and embodiment and activities that brought me joy and a sense of freedom - everything shifted. It didn't take long. My body and spirit remembered, and wanted to feel "at home" again as soon as possible.

I shared this with my client as I reminder her that “life happens.” And it's often not so much about what happens, as what you decide to do next.

There will be times when we get busy, when tragedy strikes, when things shift in a way that’s hard to understand at first (as recently happened with me) and suddenly you realize you aren’t caring for yourself anymore.

The beauty of the awareness that comes from doing this kind of work is that you NOTICE when this happens. You catch it. You course correct. You feel "off."

And then you figure out what you need to do to find your way back to yourself again.

Your baseline has shifted.

You have created a new normal for yourself.

You can never go too long ignoring your deep desires, needs and passions again.

It feels so good to care for yourself and LOVE yourself that you will never go for too long without it.

Once you have this awareness, you can’t get rid of it!!

Within about a month and a half of rearranging my schedule, asking for more support and re-prioritizing how I spend my time and treat my body - I feel wonderful.
I feel whole again.
I feel like ME.

I want you this for you too.
I want you to always know how to find your way back to yourself.
I want you to connect with that inner light, that spark, so that you can shine more brightly.

Now, I know you might be thinking, that's great Caitlin but it's not that easy for me. I can't just "rearrange my schedule" for a month and go swimming in the ocean when I want to.

I get it. I really do.

That’s what Lucir 2017 is all about. 

It's a week-long total immersion.
An opportunity to reconnect and reset.
It’s an experience that invites you into my world.
To share everything I’ve learned and to create your own, personalized brand of self-love.

To eat the best food available, all locally sourced and made freshly every single day.
To dive into a variety of self-care practices so that find with ones work best for you.
To create the roadmap back to yourself, so that if you get off track, you always know how to find your way home again.
To know that you are supported, by the other Lucir participants, by me, and most importantly, by yourself because YOU made yourself a priority and invested in your health and happiness in a big way.

I have nothing new to say to you

I have nothing new to say to you today, one week into the New Year.

My intuition is telling me that you need more time to integrate the idea of intentions into your vision for the next year.

In fact, I considered copying and pasting last week’s email again because everything I wrote is as relevant for this week as it was last week.

If you haven’t read last week’s blog on Resolutions vs Intentions - do so here.

If you’ve read last week’s blog but haven’t taken the time to create your vision and intentions for 2017, make sure to schedule time this weekend to do so!!

As part of the ceremony I did with my mother and partner on New Year’s Eve, we wrote our vision for the upcoming year, our intentions based in how we wanted to feel (each sentence started with “I am happy and grateful that…” more on this in last week’s blog) AND we each wrote down 1-3 potential barriers or blocks to realizing our vision. These could be either internal or external factors that we felt that needed to release in order for our desires to be fulfilled. Then we said a prayer and burned our lists. (fyi, we did this together but separately. I didn’t see what others had written and they didn’t see mine. However, it felt powerful to hold space for each other’s visions and intentions).

If you are still feeling resentful towards anything that happened 2016 or holding a grudge… considered a “bless and release ceremony” to let go of any lingering weight you might be carrying.

Here is the link of a blog I wrote a couple of years ago on how to bless and release (or forgive and let go.) This is powerful to any time (and as many times as you feel you need to) however now, at the start of the New Year, it can give you the feeling of lightness and a less burdened state.

Here are a few tips that will help “call it in” for the next year

Prioritize time, starting now

These things won’t magically start happening. Scheduling time to write, journal, dream, practice gratitude and take daily action towards your dreams is paramount.

Focus on the WHY, not the HOW

Keep reviewing your intentions, imagining how you will feel when you dreams are realized. Get clear on WHY this is important to you. The HOW will keep you stuck in what you already know and cuts you off from brand new possibilities or paths you may not have imagined yet.

Take one step, do it now

Pick one action for this week and start doing it. Next week, add another. Keep doing this. Keep taking action!! Many of my clients are deciding to follow a program like The Whole 30, or doTerra Detox, or committing to a certain number of days alcohol free. For others, it’s about incorporating more consistent self-care into daily routines. The most important is for you to decide something you are going to do differently, and do it.

If something stops feeling good, try something new that still fits with your intention. Questions about this? Ask me!!

Thank you, and MORE PLEASE

Stop looking for confirmation that things are harder for you. Start noticing everything that goes RIGHT. Notice, and appreciate. You received an unexpected discount? Thank you and MORE PLEASE. Traffic was lighter than expected and you arrived somewhere early? Thank you and MORE PLEASE. Your partner remembered to do something you’d given up nagging about. THANK YOU AND MORE PLEASE!!!

Gratitude, and more gratitude

I really can’t emphasize this enough. As one community member mentioned today, “I truly believe that we manifest good things when we are grateful for everything. Every experience, sometimes even the ones that seem bad are a new opportunity to learn. Focusing on the positive has helped with big changes going on in my life and it feels like the universe is conspiring to help.”

This is coming from somehow who hit a very deep bottom a couple of years ago and was quite despairing that any good would come of her life.

Celebrate your successes

In addition to “releasing 2017” and practicing gratitude, why don’t you celebrate your successes while you are at it! It is so easy to be hard on yourself and frustrated about what you didn’t accomplish. Go ahead and make a big long list of EVERYTHING you have to celebrate in the past year as a means of honouring just how far you’ve truly come. (As I type this I am inspired to write mine - this past year was hard for me and I’ve been quite critical of myself. For accountability, I will post it on social media tomorrow!!)

As one of my favourite coaches and author of the Wild Soul Movement Elizabeth DiAlto recently posted on Facebook: “Please, please, please as you make your 2017 plans and projections and map out your goals, take a moment too, to measure backwards and honor your unique milestones, life's sweet affirmations whispering in your ear, "You can do this. You ARE doing it. Keep going and don't underestimate yourself."

You’re on trend (ahead, even!)

If it feels like you are going against the grain within your inner circle, family or community, remember that you aren’t alone. There has been a proliferation of articles recently on the benefits of cutting back or eliminating alcohol, and drinking less was named as one of the health trends of 2017 by Mind Body Green. Many are choosing to redefine their relationship to alcohol and not only those who have a severe problem or consider themselves alcoholic.

If it feels like you are the only one you know wanting to make these changes, you are warmly invited to join our “secret society” aka Facebook group that has more than 100 women who are some of the most caring and supportive people I know. Simply reply to this email and let me know that you want to join. If you use a different email for Facebook, let me know in your reply, and I will send the invite to that email.
