Real Heal Original Tattoo Aftercare/All-Purpose Salve

Reading Time: 2 minutes Within the first year of releasing Real Heal in the tattoo aftercare market, I received unexpected feedback. While I knew it worked as a fantastic healing agent for cuts and chapped lips, clients mentioned its ability to speed healing for diaper rash, burns, runner’s chaffing, insect bites, and much more. Recently, a friend texted me about a burn; she wanted to know which product of mine worked best.

While NovE/Real Heal Jell-E is a great treatment for calming the skin, I advised her to use the Real Heal Original/All-Purpose Salve she had on hand. Here’s her journey, unedited:

The Truth They Don’t Want You to Know

Reading Time: 4 minutes As I discuss in multiple articles, my book and in my courses, what we put on our plate has a profound effect on the rest of the planet. The coronavirus is a wake-up call. At worst, well… we continue on our current path of factory farming, animal exploitation, and a flu strain decimates the human population.

The Humanity Prayer

Reading Time: 2 minutes May You Be Happy: send this around the world, to every living being enclosed in our atmosphere.

May You Be Healthy: the stronger we are mentally, emotionally, and physically, the faster we get to the other side of this issue. Negative stress weakens our immune system.

May You Be Free From Fear: envision those who are living in fear, unnecessarily hoarding supplies from the rest of the world. In the standard rendition of this chant, these people are the people you don’t like. In this adaptation, it’s anyone stockpiling supplies. Wish them eased fear, so they know we’re safe and there’s no need to remove the safety from others.

Music as Motivation?

Reading Time: 5 minutes We all listen to music while exercising to get us going… why not use it as fuel for other passions? Why not find songs that align with your core values?

Emoto proved molecules are altered by music; restaurants provide music as an aspect of ambiance, as do retail stores. If you’ve attended a live class of mine, you know I always play ambient music in the background. It helps you focus, calms all of us, and makes us all smarter. 🙂


I teach mindfulness about what you listen to when you cook, when you’re at work, and especially when you’re driving.


While most commutes are spent listening to classical music, there are “those mornings” I need uplifting, inspiration, or drivea reminder of why I’m here. On those mornings, there are 3 songs I play back to back (I have a short commute!); I share them with you below, along with one of my favorite musical social commentaries.

The lyrics are below, but it’s music, so the point is to listen to the melody and the vocal expression. Use the written lyrics to understand what they’re saying, especially in the Thievery Corporation song.

These are rock tunes (Thievery is an electronic/world fusion band)—make sure your volume’s appropriate for your location. 😉

Taking the Hawthorne Effect to the Next Level

Reading Time: < 1 minute Here’s the moment of opportunity: 

What if you combine those two effects? You pretend you’re being watched by those you admire… What if the greatest leaders, speakers, or gurus were in the room with you? Would you act, say, do, eat, think differently?

Mom-Dad 1976

These Are the 2 Reasons I Serve…

Reading Time: 2 minutes You’ve heard bits and pieces of my story throughout the years: in workshops, emails, friendly conversations, or during mentoring. I grew up fast, hard, and not under the best circumstances. My parents did the best they could, but they weren’t equipped for life… 


They gave up their dreams of being a teacher (mom) and architect (dad). 


There wasn’t a deep connection to “why” they wanted those things; when times got rough, they fell into complacency and troubled lives. March 2020 marks 21 years since my father died suddenly; February is 17 years since mom passed. Some days, telling their story and how it made me who I am is easy. 

The True Cost of Illness

Reading Time: 10 minutes I’ve read countless stories of near-death recoveries, improved health at 70-years of age or more, and none of these are wealthy people with access to unlimited medical advances. We scoff at the simplicity of their recovery: eat more plants, sleep 7 or more hours, meditate, exercise 15 minutes daily, chase your crazy passions, and surround yourself with people who you love, admire, and who inspire you.

When I have heart-to-heart conversations with people about their level of health, the conversation turns to hopelessness, apathy, and a lack of motivation. Why? Because “healthy food doesn’t agree with me,” “I like my junk food too much,” “What does it matter? I’m 55, 70 years old (insert any age), and can’t change… what’s the point of trying?” “I want to enjoy my food,” or “I don’t want to give up sweets. It’s not like I’m looking for a new spouse, anyway.”

I ask again… “why ‘suffer’ to be healthy?” Because these people are on medication, routinely visit the doctor, are on disability, and can’t walk far, nor lift over 15 pounds. I hate watching helplessly, knowing how their family is suffering as a result of their false beliefs.

What World Do You Want to Live In?

Reading Time: 3 minutes So, what’s the solution? 

You and I have similar fears… we want to be healthy, we want our loved ones to be healthy, and we don’t want to spend a fortune getting there. I won’t give you any shortcuts—if you want a magic pill or quick route to health, I’m not the Influencer for you.

Like sickness, thriving wellness is an ongoing process. You didn’t get wherever you are overnight, nor can you leave there overnight. You found me because you want a better life.

I challenge you to enjoy the next level of true wellness!
