• Why I’m No Longer Using The Word “Woo”

    Woo is a word that I will no longer be using…

    I used to use it until I realised what I was trying to say: that even though I believed in what I was saying, I felt like I needed to tone it down to make it acceptable to other people.

    When we say “OK, this is a bit woo, but hear me out…”, what we’re really saying is “I know you think it’s silly so I’m going to pretend that I don’t believe in it as much as I actually do…”

    What I’ve found is that as I’ve moved further and further along my spiritual journey, I care less about what other people think because I’m more sure of what I consider to be truth. As I experience more and tune in more to the spiritual world, it leaves less room for avoiding or denying certain things – even if other people can’t see them yet.

    Whether it’s psychic senses, energy, law of attraction, or astrology, if that’s really what you believe then you don’t need to water it down with woo. It’s OK for you to believe what you want to believe if you think that it’s true.

    Next time you feel yourself hesitantly putting forward an opinion and watering it down with the word woo, tune in to why you feel this is. From my own times using the woo word, it was because a witch wound was being triggered so I was scared to put forward a spiritual point of view.

    The witch wound is something that affects us all and I’m going to do a whole separate blog about it after I read the book Witch by Lisa Lister. Once it’s ready it will be linked here!

    But it’s this witch wound from our past lifetimes where we were persecuted for our beliefs (which was probably everyone reading this blog) that compels us to label our beliefs more safely as weird and woo instead of true.

    How would it feel to remove the woo and just say what you really want to say?

    How would it feel to give your advice, knowing that it’s what someone needs, without feeling like you need to say it’s a bit silly?

    How else could you share your spiritual opinion while honouring the power that you know it has?

    If we leave no room for the word woo, then we’re taking up all of the space available with our truth of what we believe to be right; and not only what we believe to be right, but what we believe to be helpful. That’s why we’re putting it forward in the first place.

    So, this is just something to think about – and again, no judgement for using the word woo because I did too! Hence why I’m writing this, because I had the realisation of why I was actually doing it and why I have since stopped…

    I believe that the spiritual point of view is becoming more and more normal, and soon there’ll be no need for the word woo because we won’t have to water down our ideas and opinions because more people will see how they’re valuable.

    If you think that something is going to heal and enlighten people, then just share it with the world without feeling like you need to acknowledge that other people think it’s silly.

    If you don’t think it’s silly then say it because you think it’s true – without the word woo.


  • Weird & Woo Marketing Tips That Will Help Your Business

    I’m all about the woo and I’m guessing that you are too…

    I know without a doubt that there’s no activity or outcome which can’t be enhanced with a little dose of energy magic, so I’m 100% for it in every area of my life – including my daily business and marketing activities!

    If you know that you can change the world around you with your energy, thoughts and actions, then why would you not implement that in everything you do?

    Especially when it comes to the vehicle that’s going to allow you to create the most impact in the world, while also steering you closer to all of your own dreams. If it’s well aligned, you can live out all of your values through your business; like for me, mine are 1) freedom and 2) impact.

    I try to load all of my business and marketing activities with maximum positive impact.

    I also believe in karma! So, if you believe in karma too, you should try out some of these weird and woo marketing tips that will keep your clients coming back to you again and again…

    Every time I hit “send” on an email – whether it’s an Angel Card reading, a Tarot reading, or to an editor of a magazine – I send it with love! Literally.

    I’ll think in my head: “I love you” or “God bless you“, as I hit send. I don’t say it out loud (so no-one would ever know 🤫) but sending that love and positivity to people adds an extra energetic dimension to what you’re delivering.

    When you’re sending high vibrations out to people, on some level they’ll receive them – and they’ll feel them. To be honest, I don’t do this with Instagram DM’s because I power through them quickly, but with something that I spend more time and attention on (like emails) I’ll always send with love.

    I do the exact same thing when I send things out in the post (aka the ol’ snail mail…)

    For example, with every single gratitude stone that I put in the letterbox, I think the intention: “May this bring them more than they invested.” I’m posting it with the intention that the customer will get more from it than they’ve spent, to increase the benefit that they’ll receive.

    I definitely recommend that you do this if you send postal orders as part of your business, because it also gives you that moment to appreciate each and every item that you’re sending out – and each and every customer that you have. It’s a moment of gratitude for you too. Embrace and enjoy it!

    I also do this if I’m sending a birthday card to friends and family; I’ll always post it with love and a positive intention, expecting the person to secretly receive it when they open that card 💌

    PS – As I wrote out this heading, I realised that it could be interpreted as posting on Instagram with love, which… surprise, surprise… I do that too.

    If you’re thinking “hmm what?“, let me explain…

    I want you to step INTO the person that you hope to become, before you step OUT into the world.

    This means taking a brief moment before filming anything – like an IG story, IGTV, TIK TOK or YouTube video – to assume the identity of the you who already has everything you want.

    This is a pro manifesting tip, because it allows you to easily align with the life you’re creating. If you want to be a leader in your field, then step into the role of already being that person before you share your message.

    This will make people see you as such, and respond to you as such, and trust in you as such, and therefore – buy from you as such.

    It will also help you to become more comfortable in that identity! Therefore, making it easier for the Universe to match you with the results you really want.

    Practice becoming the person that you want to be every time you show yourself to the world.

    This is probably the least weird of the woo tips, but I’m going to mention it anyway just in case.

    I definitely recommend having a notepad which is just for catching all of that wonderful Divine inspiration which flows through you. If you’re a writer, I pretty much demand it!

    If you don’t grab inspiration when it comes through, it’s easily forgotten. That’s the difference between inspiration and a thought – when it’s not made by your own brain, it’s harder to retrace. It flows through and out in a second; so it’s important to catch it, use it, and share it with the world.

    I have a lot of notepads, but there’s one without an organised structure because it’s solely for my inspiration. I’ll group a few pages for a course that I’m working on and a few pages for a book, just so that the inspiration is together by project. But, I can then just write random inspo anywhere in that section.

    When the day comes to put the course or book together, I can then sort all of those random sparks into sections that make sense.

    An inspiration notepad will allow you to get the best out of your work and will make it so much easier for you to put something together, because you’ll have plenty of juicy details from the ideas that you caught weeks or months beforehand.

    Make sure it’s a notepad that you love with a lush design (most of mine have inspirational quotes on, obvs…) and keep it close by at all times. You’ll need it.

    Not getting the type of customers that you want? It’s time to set a new energetic boundary!

    Like everything else in life, we attract the least that we’ll accept. So, if you find yourself serving people who aren’t appreciating your work, with offers that you don’t enjoy doing, it’s time to raise your energetic boundary.

    Refuse from this point on to accept money coming in from any way that you don’t absolutely love.

    Attract customers who love what you do and respect your time, while also making it a non-negotiable that you won’t devote any of yourself to doing things that you feel trapped by.

    It’s your business – you are not trapped.

    No-one owns it apart from you, so you get to decide what you do. Don’t forget that!

    If something is making you really unhappy over the long-term, then it’s an energetic boundary issue. Refuse to accept less than what you really want, and the good stuff will start showing up.

    You can attract the customers and results that you desire if you’re sharing offers which you truly believe in and enjoy doing.

    Intuitive business done my way is what I live by, and what I encourage everyone else to do too…

    I really don’t care what other people think I “should” be doing, because I can feel my own solutions and I can see the answers. Whenever I get really stuck, I literally close my eyes and try to see the answer. I’ll even do this if I’m looking for things at home, and I might see a moment of me walking into the kitchen – so I’ll know that my phone is in there somewhere 🤪

    I feel what I should be offering and when; I feel when the time is right to do so; and I see the words on a page when I just can’t think what I should write next. If you’re intuitive, it’s your greatest ally!

    There are millions of entrepreneurs in the world who don’t utilise this tool enough, and you don’t have to be one of them.

    Feel your solutions, see your answers, and trust your intuition. It will give you an extra edge when it comes to marketing your business. Your gifts aren’t separate from your offerings in business, so combine them all together for maximum impact…

    I hope you enjoyed these and that they weren’t too “woo” for you. They’re normal to me, but I just realised this week that maybe they’re not normal for everyone, so I thought it would be fun to share them.

    I also shared them with you because I know that they work, and that your energy amplifies the results of everything you do!

    For amazing results with all of your business and marketing: just add a little woo ✨
