and Live with Vitality Collective
Are you into personal growth?! If you're here, in the AKCO community, you most likely are! In addition to dedicating my time to this little part of our world, where we focus on mindset to manifest our dreams, I am also connected to a group whom I hold very dear - the Live with Vitality Collective - where we inspire healthy living around the world.
And, through this LWVC, I'm super excited to announce a fun community we're launching in 2024 - a personal growth book club! We are taking the next 12 months to read 12 books together (and you don't have to commit to all 12, or you can commit to more than 12!) and see where that takes us - because when people learn and read and grow together, the impact is exponential!
The books will all be personal growth focused, and we'll meet once a month to discuss them over Zoom. We'll also have a Facebook group where we share our meetup recordings, book summaries, other ideas, and discuss our goals for 2024, personal growth areas of focus, and then follow each other's journey throughout the year, supported and cheered to reach our success!
If you're interested in joining us, (and if you want to see change or success of any kind in 2024, I urge you do!) then request to join the group, and use my name as your inviter!
I'm REALLY excited about this - about the accountability of a group doing 12 months together, about the growth we'll all get to see in each other, and about the books we're going to read as a community!
And if you're already in a book club, trust me, this one's going to be different!
Be the worm,
and leaving a Legacy
When you are living on purpose, your outlook completely changes - into one of being mission-driven and legacy-focused. Perhaps your legacy isn't important to you, but I assure you, when you decided to drop into this reality, when you chose to separate from your light being and come to this Only Planet of Choice to be in school once again, you did have a purpose.
If you know what that purpose is, it's all that much easier. But, oftentimes, we don't, or not right away. Oftentimes, it's vague, or general. Oftentimes, it's guarded even, and we're afraid to truly step into it because we're afraid of getting hurt, doing it wrong, failing...
In 2016, I designed a course based on 4 focuses that narrow in on that purpose. I taught it for 3 years in person, and it's the only course in our deck that hasn't been migrated to the online world. Mostly, because it feels impossible to do so. It's a course that took a LOT of work to dive into each of the 4 focuses for each person, because it was so individualized.
But the more I work with people, the more I realize, you know, maybe you need a deep dive, but you don't need a course. You need self-reflection. And some deep questions...
What lit you up when you were 7 years old?
What brings you so much joy that when you're doing it, you lose all track of time?
What feels like a calling to you?
These are the questions that hone in on your purpose and define your legacy.
For me, for decades, I knew. I knew I wanted to have a big piece of land, grow endless amounts of food, live sustainably and self-sufficiently (and off the grid), and - here's the legacy - teach other people to do the same.
It just so happened I found 2 other women (10 years ago now!) who wanted to do the same, and we took the plunge to make it happen in 2021. Kudos to the husbands who say yes to their wives' dreams!
If you haven't been following what we're doing on our Shambhala Education Center farm, I urge you to take a look. If this speaks to you, please come visit and put your hands in the earth with us. If you can't make the trek, though, but you want to give, please do so here. We are seeking to raise $20,000 for 2024 to begin our legacy of creating a peaceful place of self-sufficient living, learning, healing, and personal growth in a community setting to help establish a more healthy and longevous world. Every little bit counts.
And if you haven't yet found your purpose and legacy, do the deep dive, start with those questions above. Because once you do, trust me, everything changes. And I want to hear what you find, so reach out when you do.

What Burt Goldman taught me about Quantum Jumping
In our Manifesting with Synchronicity class, we work up to advanced techniques like Quantum Jumping, which I feel so lucky to have learned from the late, great Burt Goldman.
Burt was a master of manifestation, and his Quantum Jumping technique is all about visualizing your desire and making it a reality, but visiting the alternate version of yourself who has already made this happen.
This is the power of multidimensionality.
What I love about this time of year, is that it makes me think "what if" about the alternate reality that I started spinning out of two years ago—the one that held the "Steamboat version" of me for 25 years. In that reality right now, I'd have spent the last two weeks gearing up for ski season, I'd have a few days of holiday weekend skiing under my belt, and I'd be hunkering down for a long, cold, snowy winter ahead.
When I learned the technique of Quantum Jumping, I didn't really understand multidimensionality. I didn't know I was able to tap into the power of a version of me that I didn't even know existed. But this technique helped me learn how to snowboard. It helped me master the financial abundance we dreamed up. It helped me manifest a novel idea, an online course, a new career... it helps me stay focused on the here and now, it helps me have courage in challenging situations, you see?
It's part of everything I do.
You could search the web for Quantum Jumping, and try to piece together Burt's lessons through his legacy (but without him because he made his transition into 4D in 2020!), or you could take our Manifesting With Synchronicity course and get his QJ course for free!
You get 20 years of my experience in your back pocket, urging you to jump as often as you remember to, leaping your way into the future through parallel doorways.
What could you be doing in alternate realities right now that could help you manifest the desires and dreams of your current lifetime/timeline? Does that even make sense? And if not, does it stoke your curiosity?
If so, stay tuned. We're launching a fabu new version of Manifesting With Synchronicity for the Mega Energy of 2024. Are you ready to rock it?
I know you are.
