Transformation Inspirations : Lilla Fletcher (Inspired Transformation Case Study)

Transformation Inspirations : Lilla Fletcher (Inspired Transformation Case Study)

I am so excited to share with you Lilla’s Transformation Inspirations story! Lilla Fletcher and I met at a Vipassana 10-Day silent meditation course over the summer in 2016 and very quickly became friends (can you imagine?!!! hahaha!). When I got ready to open up a very intimate run of my annual course, Inspired Transformation, for whatever reason Lilla’s name stood out to me intuitively.

So I sent her a message and told her what I was feeling and OH. MY. was my intuition so on point. Turns out, my dear friend Lilla was in serious need of some inspiration and transformation as she was claiming her power and re-claiming her life after being in a very toxic and abusive situation at home. Within Inspired Transformation Lilla grew from being a scared but willing young lady, to a blossoming, clear, and powerful woman.

Now, let’s get into Lilla’s bad-ass Transformation Inspirations interview!

 

Where were you in life and how were you feeling before you experienced Inspired Transformation?
I had just come out of a bad situation when I joined inspired transformation. Inspired transformation gave me the clarity to see exactly what I want and who I want to become. Inspired Transformation also gave me the insight to see what can stop me from achieving dreams.
What were your hesitations or concerns about enrolling in Inspired Transformation?
My only concern was financial when enrolling in this course. She was willing to work with me and was even willing to take payment on installments. Having known Riley previously I knew that I was in safe guiding hands.
What was the most powerful part of the course experience for you + your journey?
The support that I gained by taking Inspired Transformation was extremely powerful for me. Having left a situation that made me feel powerless Inspired Transformation helped me find my power again.
How did you feel as you explored and experienced Inspired Transformation throughout the 6 weeks?
I felt inspired, wary of confronting what I did want, I felt powerful and I found myself accessing the things I needed to confront to move past an obstacle in my way. A rollercoaster of emotions in a course that pushes you to manifest what you want, exactly as it should be.
Would you share your overall Inspired Transformation experience?
Having just left an all encompassing 4 year relationship that had left me without a voice, without access to my inner power and felt suffocating. I was on the search to find myself again. Inspired transformation was one of the steps that I took to finding myself and with the support and guidance I gained from this course I have started to gain my power back with a vengeance. I can visualize who I want to be and what I want in life which I was blind to for so long. I can’t thank Riley, and this course, enough for lending me guidance in my time of need.
What was your biggest fear about claiming your life, desires, and the person you wanted to become?
My biggest fear in claiming my life and desires is to find that I cannot rise to the challenge of having the life that I want.
How do you feel about that fear now?
I have the support and tools to face my fears and become the person I want to become.
What has been your biggest take-away from the Inspired Transformation experience?
That I have the power to make my own destiny.
If you were to share the Inspired Transformation course with someone you know, or someone thinking about enrolling, what would you say to them?
I would explain Inspired Transformation as a course to help guide and find the person you want to become. A course that lends clarity and support in finding you.
What would you say to someone afraid of or hesitant to invest in Inspired Transformation?
I would say that you are not investing in a simple course. Instead you are investing in yourself. If you do not find yourself worthy of having the life that you want and yet want a change desperately. Take a chance and make the leap to invest in a course that gives you the support to make a change.
Now that you have co-created and cultivated your intentional Inspired Transformation, what do you have to share about the course experience and your transformation for someone who is on the opposite side of transformation?
Be open, your possibilities are endless, you have a hidden power that you merely have to access. Listen to your heart and follow it because you are the only one who knows the right path for you. Take control and say no more to the things holding you back. It is your time and now is the time to take it.
YOU. GUYS. Can you see why Lilla + her story of total triumph are so damn inspiring? How could I keep her magic to myself?! I had to share her + her magic with you! And I am so excited to say that her vision of family + being a business owner babe are becoming reality as we speak! Lilla recently got engaged to her quite literal knight in shining armor, and very soon she will be beginning her powerful business ventures.

Cara Samuels is an incredibly bright and dedicated light-worker! She joined a very special intimate group of Inspired Transformation that I ran this past fall all the way from Scotland, and she completely flourished within her confidence, desires, and readiness to step fully into herself and her gifts! Here is her lovely Inspired Transformation interview for Transformation Inspirations!
Where were you in life and how were you feeling before you experienced Inspired Transformation?
At the beginning of a journey and feeling a little lost.
What were your hesitations or concerns about enrolling in Inspired Transformation?
I would say that I was just unsure about what it was about, or what we would be working on.
What was the most powerful part of the course experience for you + your journey?
The inner-work that you do is incredibly powerful, and so exciting to consider what you can achieve for yourself!
How did you feel as you explored and experienced Inspired Transformation throughout the 6 weeks?
The course was very exciting – I definitely feel abundant in both my dreams and my ability to get there!
Would you share your overall Inspired Transformation experience?
This course gives you exactly what it says it will – an Inspired Transformation. In 6 weeks, it is incredible how much you can change, and I now feel that not only are my goals achievable – I can create much more than I had ever given thought to!
What was your biggest fear about claiming your life, desires, and the person you wanted to become?
I can honestly say that I didn’t really consider this until the course – Inspired Transformation made me think about that, in a safe space, be curious about what my fears might be, and how to change my story. My biggest fear was definitely around my ability to see things through, and stick with my goals.
How do you feel about that fear now?
Now, I feel that I am responsible for how I create my outcome. I can certainly still have those doubts, but they don’t have to dictate my outcome.
What has been your biggest take-away from the Inspired Transformation experience?
Thinking bigger, and how to deal with the fear and doubt that inevitably comes up.
If you were to share the Inspired Transformation course with someone you know, or someone thinking about enrolling, what would you say to them?
Definitely do it – give it the time it deserves, and you definitely deserve the outcome!
What would you say to someone afraid of or hesitant to invest in Inspired Transformation?
What you get out of this is worth far more than your investment!
Now that you have co-created and cultivated your intentional Inspired Transformation, what do you have to share about the course experience and your transformation for someone who is on the opposite side of transformation?
I totally get it – I don’t think doubt, fear, confusion, will ever be something we live without, but you will have the tools to work through all the limitations and toward your better self and come out the other end in a better place than you ever think is achievable!
You’ve heard me harping on about Inspired Transformation over the last few months, and now you get to see it’s magic in real life! Cara was such an incredible student of Inspired Transformation and I am so grateful to hold space and cheer her on as she creates her dream coaching business and realizes the life of her dreams this year!
If this is interview and Cara’s story resonates with you, and you’d like to cultivate and experience your own Inspired Transformation, you can enroll in the 6 week course experience now right here. Now is your time, and it’s time you LIVE in your light

Trust In Your Guidance + Surrender The Rest

Trust In Your Guidance + Surrender The Rest

This week we’re going to be talking about my biggest lesson in life and spirituality so far, and that is deeply trusting AND then surrendering to the rest of the process. Let’s be real here, this is something all of us struggle with, probably on a weekly basis. Learning to trust in yourself is a somewhat easy process and practice compared to learning how to allow yourself surrender and well, allow.

The idea that sparked this article topic for me was a recent live I did with the incredible Lexi Schaffer, for her amazing and inspiring podcast Journey to Six Figures. You can listen to that episode here!

 

Trust Yourself + Surrender the Rest from the Spirit & Soul blog
Like this blog? Pin it!

 

You may hear many other spiritual teachers and leaders talk about trust and surrender often, and that is because these two practices of energy and mindset are really important pieces to a solid spiritual connection and foundation. Many people have lots of trust and ease trusting in themselves, while others have a great amount of trust and ease trusting in their Higher Power, and for others it can be hard to trust fully in either of these.

 

So in my personal experience, for a strong connection to yourself, your inner guidance, and your higher power + guidance you must be willing to trust in yourself and your inner guidance above anyone else’s opinion and then you’ve got to surrender it all, and allow it to be what it is supposed to. Intentions and goals while incredible habits, also need to be surrendered in a sense to manifest.

If you are clenching onto an outcome or result you will likely close yourself off to that very thing happening, while when you release it to it’s highest good you are more energetically open and receptive to it’s manifestation and divine alignment (even if it doesn’t look exactly how you wanted it to).

To be able to trust in yourself enough to follow your intuition and guidance is powerful in itself. When you can do that and then let it go to be what it will be and feel good about however it unfolds is where the deepest and most powerful magic has the space to come through.

Many of us can agree, that it is incredibly hard to get out of our own way enough to practice this, however that is only because we make it hard on ourselves. We were not made to experience hardship and upset, we were made to live life in a way of presence, experience, and growth.

We’ve got to get out of our own heads, and out of our own way just enough to let the magic that is more than available to us in. Because truly, we are the only thing’s that can get in our way. This requires a continuous practice of deeply trusting, and consistently surrendering.

 

I’d love to hear your questions about this topic so that I can answer them and expand on this message in the weekly FB Live show on Riley Reign. If you are ready to trust and surrender let us know how in the comment section below! And, if trust + surrender are your focus for 2018, I would love to have you as a student in my powerhouse course, Inspired Transformation. You can join the course waitlist just below this blog.

Transformation Inspirations : Roger Webb, Belief Breakthrough Guru

Transformation Inspirations : Roger Webb, Belief Breakthrough Guru

Welcome to this week’s Transformation Inspiration interview! This week I am SO excited to share with you the story + teachings of the incredibly powerful Belief Breakthrough Guru, Roger Webb. Roger has been a personal inspiration and mentor to me for the last year or so, and his BBT Live! event changed my life for the better by helping me to truly and wholeheartedly step into my power and OWN it.

Roger Webb  has been a Life/Wellness Coach and Sales & Management trainer for individuals & companies all over the globe for over 20 years.  He has worked with all levels of businesses, from small sales organizations to fortune 500 companies.  As a Master NLP Practitioner, Roger has a keen insight to the subconscious mind, and has a deep commitment to helping others break through their limiting beliefs, to achieve amazing success, both personally and professionally.  He has raised 5 amazing kids on his own, and is deeply committed to empowering others to live lives of passion, authenticity, optimal health, and love!

In Roger’s own words, here is his story of transformation…

“My story… wow, that’s a potential novel (really)!  I am a single dad, and have spent the last 7 years raising 5 awesome kids, on my own. It’s taught me a lot about what maters in life.  I have been a life coach, for 20+ years, and the last 10 as a Master NLP Practitioner. I have a deep passion for helping people realize the Divine Truths about themselves and create a bigger, better, life of magic.  I’ve gone through massive transformation in my own life over the last 10 years, and find that my authenticity and passion can impact others, and empower them to dream and move!   My own growth, required the shedding of nearly everything I was taught and believed growing up, which forced me to recreate myself, from scratch.  I made many mistakes along the way, and each one of them taught me a more beautiful lesson than the one before.   My work as a Life Coach/Master NLP Practitioner over 20 years brought me to a deep passion around helping people break through their limiting beliefs.  I believe that limiting beliefs are the cause of most issues/challenges that people have.  With that said, I discovered something profound this past summer. My personal focus this year, has been around self love. I really wanted to fall in love with myself.  As I went through this process, I came to a realization that SELF LOVE is truly the root of it all. The more I fell in love with myself, the less power my limiting beliefs had over me, and the more I was able to see my weaknesses and challenges.  It’s been a pretty amazing journey!” ~ Roger Webb

Now let’s get into this inspirational interview!

 

Where were you at before you transformed your life? What was your experience, emotional state, and perspective like?

I am having a hard time remembering that man. I was raised in a pretty controlling religious upbringing, where I was told what and how to believe. In the end, very little of those beliefs stuck with me, as I shed them for a deeper and greater understanding of universal truths, and my own relationship with Divinity.  I was the opposite of what I am today. I was timid, quiet, reserved, and led a very mediocre life, which was just fine for me, back then.   I saw life through a VERY small lens. Everything was black or white. My view of life, the world, and humanity was very one sided. I had no clue what my role was on this Earth, and was ok with that. I was also living in a space in which it wasn’t ok to be authentic. No one talked about what was really going on inside of them. Especially if it was viewed as negative. I wore the same mask that most of those in my life wore.  Everything was ok, and God forbid we ever said otherwise.  That led me to living a life of being numb.  I knew about emotions, but I had no reference point for many of them. I knew sadness very well… but that’s about it.

During that period of your life, what did you wish for or dream of the most for yourself?

Nothing. Growing up, I was a big dreamer. I wanted it all.  However, I was taught by many people in my life that dreams were impractical. So in my mid twenties, I stopped dreaming.  Al I wanted to be was a good husband and a good father. Don’t get me wrong – there is nothing wrong with either of those and they are amazing things to aspire to… but I knew deep in my heart that I could and would be so much more!  Yet, every time I started dreaming, I was told by those in my life that it wasn’t “practical” so I stopped.   I always knew I’d be a hell of a dad, and I am… But when I regained my ability to dream, and my passion and vest for having a bigger, better, greater life, I realized that a BIG part of me being an amazing dad, was to show my kids the truth about life… The truth that ANYTHING is within their reach!  I am dreaming again, and I’m seeing my kids starting to dream too!

When your life began to change, what cause the shift(s) for you?

I had a massive crisis of faith and personal identity. Everything I had been raised believing, crumbled around me. I had two choices, lie under the rubble, or or rise up and build something new! I realized that at that moment, I had an opportunity to completely recreate my life as I wanted it to be! It has been the most difficult & painful experience to date, but it has brought me to an immensely beautiful place in my life!
What did your transformation look like for you, and how did the experience feel?
For me, it looked like shedding who I was, to become who I knew I could become. A true metamorphosis.  There are very few things about me now that are a part of that guy. As I think about it… I know that who I am now, was in there all along… It just took a jackhammer, a blowtorch, and a few cases of C4, to get myself out of that prison.   I started with a few personal development seminars, back in 1997. The walls started crumbling, and I couldn’t stop. I became obsessed with discovering who I really am.   As I mentioned earlier, there was a lot of pain involved. IT wasn’t always fun… but it was ALWAYS worth it, and each time I shed another layer, I felt lighter, and happier!
What practice, tool, or mindset has been the most meaningful and impactful for you along your journey?
For me, it’s been a realization and understanding, that I can’t do it ALL at once. I tried for a long time and felt like a failure often. So, my practice now, consists of the following:  1, Work hard to be conscious of every moment. The words I say, the thoughts I think, and the actions I take. Am I doing them consciously?  2.  Do SOMETHING every day towards bettering myself. Even if it’s tiny… Just one thing every day. If I can go to bed, knowing I did something to improve, I’ve won.   3. Be gentle on myself.   4. Take care of my body.   5. Focus on Love, Peace, and Joy.  Anything that doesn’t fit in these three things, or that takes away from them, doesn’t get to take up space in my life.
 

Having gone through the transformation that you have now, what would you say to your past self?

Live your life with passion, authenticity, and love. At all costs. Don’t listen to anything or anyone who distracts you from that path.  ALWAYS remember your own Divinity.  There is power there that you will never fully be able to comprehend!   And I LOVE YOU!
Where is your life now? What is your experience, emotional state, and perspective like?
I’m still on the path.  I have amazing days and I have rough days. However, the rough days now, serve as lessons, so I can rise higher. I’m at peace. Those are words I could never say for many years.  I am truly living my mission, to Live life with passion, authenticity, and love, by walking my talk. That last part is the kicker sometimes. When I’m walking the talk, all of life is great… When I’m not, it’s a good barometer for me that I am out of sync with my mission, and I have work to do.  I feel a constant vibration in my life now. A vibration of growth, of understanding, of joy, and of adventure. Life is a fucking roller coaster. It’s my choice on whether or not I am going to enjoy the ride, (even the scary parts that I don’t like) or chicken out!
Roger Webb is an amazing human and his story is just as amazing and inspirational as well. I am so grateful not only that Roger is in my life but that he lives his life from leadership and open heartedness and is so willing to show up for the betterment of everyone.  l am so proud + grateful to be able to feature him and his work here in the Transformation Inspirations series. If you’d like to learn more from Roger and get more familiar with his work you can do so here.

This Is For Those That Feel Like Their Dreams Are Impossible

This Is For Those That Feel Like Their Dreams Are Impossible

Throughout my journey I have felt more than enough times that what I am set out to do is nearly impossible, and while spirituality and my soul-journey have more than supported me and held me within that, and carried me all the way to where I am now, I have learned something very valuable from my dreams and goals themselves.

And, that lesson is exactly what I am here to share with you today!

 

This is for those that feel like their dreams are impossible from the Spirit & Soul blog

So here’s the deal my beautiful soul-seeking, co-creating badasses…

Your dreams are not impossible.
They are almost impossible.

 

#TruthBomb #MicDrop. You see, words have power. More so than we give them credit for. The word almost, in this instant, quite literally creates space for the impossible to be possible. You also grant yourself the permission to be inspired and empowered more than enough to go for it.

 

 

My friends, your dreams, goals, ideas, desires, etc. are not impossible. They are almost impossible. Which makes your dreams, goals, ideas, desires, etc. equally as almost possible. Here, you become empowered. Here, you CAN make it happen. Here, your dreams, goals, ideas, desires, etc. are so much closer to you than you think.

When you operate from this new-found space, you can create anything you dream, think, and desire.

The Law of Attraction says, “Your thoughts create your reality.” So, what are you focused on? How impossible your dreams, goals, ideas, desires, etc. are? Or, how you’ve got just enough space to pull it off, make it happen, manifest magic, and inspire + empower the world with your “almost” impossible mindset to bring positive change.

So to all of you beautiful light-working, inspired as hell souls that are craving something magic but are afraid, feel like (or are told) that your dreams are impossible, or even just don’t know where to start here’s what I’ve got to say :

 

You can do this. 
I know so because I’m doing it too, in my own way, and I’m walking right beside you.

If you believe in yourself and your soul is calling you to show up for something, show up for it. 
It might be scary and push you outside of your comfort zone, but you’ve got magic to share and you can’t hide it or deny the rest of the world that is looking for what you have to offer.

Your dreams are NOT impossible.
They are almost impossible.

Lean into the almost. With everything you’ve got.
It will carry you, I promise.
