2022 – WTH?! 2023 – Bring it on!

Spread the love

I was asked by a few people for some personal updates, so I decided to record an episode to talk about the major events and challenges in 2022. I’m giving it a 3.5 star review – WHAT the hell was that?! I haven’t recorded the spirit messages yet, but I want to share what Spirit has been inspiring me with for 2023 as well. I now have some clarity on what the focus will be looking towards the future.


I would love to hear your top 3 things from 2022 and your top 3 for heading into 2023! You’re welcome to share them on the post for this episode in Spirit School. I enjoy getting to know you there. The move off of social media was one of my main goals for 2022, and this is one of the benefits! I hope you enjoy hearing my recap and I appreciate you taking the time to listen, and your acceptance of the emotions that come along with it.


For the first time, I will be offering an annual membership for $1111 USD and it will include The Initiation (a $888 USD value) for FREE! The cart for this will be open until we start on January 31st, so there is time to decide if this feels aligned for you.

In this episode: 

  • I’ve got a bit more clarity on what the focus will be for 2023
  • While last January feels like lifetimes ago, I also don’t know where the time has gone
  • 2022 started with the obsession with getting Spirit School off of social media 
  • I have benefitted from this shady system of social media, particularly Instagram
  • Stories of me crying had 1000 views, but talking about The Initiation had 150 max
  • Meta platforms made it so that you have to pay for ads for promotions to be seen
  • There was a hearing about the intentional harm in Meta’s algorithms
  • I felt a mismatch in values having Spirit School on their platforms
  • Another issue is that there are always 3-5 scam accounts impersonating me
  • I had to hire someone to help manage my DMs, and it took the fun out of being there
  • Reels are being pushed and I don’t want to be a content creator
  • TikTok builds up creators then takes away their exposure, creating unequal exchange
  • My IG growth is slow because I don’t play games and I block suspicious followers
  • Moving my programs off of Meta and onto Mighty Networks was a sovereign move
  • Mighty is an all-in-one platform with opportunities for growth 
  • My team moved all of my historical content to Mighty over 5 months
  • We launched successfully with The Calling, then moved the Collective 
  • I’m off of Facebook but will not leave Instagram because of my audience
  • Off social media, I have Mighty, my podcast and mailing list for sovereign growth
  • I will be able to buy it out as my own platform, and I get to just show up and speak
  • I’ve focused on getting trauma informed from a financial place as a BIPOC woman
  • I kept finding myself in relationship with people who worship money
  • I don’t think about it that much, but I wondered if I was supposed to
  • Being around people who talked about money a lot made me feel not enough
  • I had a friend literally choose the pursuit of wealth over genuine friendship 
  • I have named my money wounds and have come a long way in my healing
  • I became trauma informed certified for entrepreneurship
  • In January, I will be certified through the Trauma of Money and will be a facilitator
  • I’m passionate about this because money stuff comes up for lightworkers 
  • I had resistances to helping clients with pricing because of my own wounds
  • I’ve learned so much and I’ll have the tools to help people when money comes up
  • I was trauma-informed before because I worked with Indigenous residential school survivors and youth
  • Just because you’re trauma informed doesn’t mean you won’t traumatize someone
  • It’s about being prepared and having the skillset to repair
  • All lightworkers, especially mediums, could benefit because we work with grief
  • I’ve made changes to my business like removing penalties for payment plans
  • Clarity is kindness, so I created a detailed syllabus for The Initiation
  • It was a successful year in terms of money, but I value connection
  • This was the hardest year of my life in a lot of ways
  • WIthin a week, my dad was diagnosed with cancer and my brother was in a coma
  • I had just recorded a reel to my younger self to love on my brother 
  • The hardest part was when I had to say goodbye to him
  • I took a month off to be by his side every day while he recovered
  • Having opportunities for exposure fall through showed I’ll be self made
  • It dissolved the illusion of exposure and I realized it’s an ad to be featured
  • I’ve created Spirit School from my bedroom, but I started looking for a space
  • Everything unfolded for me to get one of three waterfront spaces in Squamish
  • I got funding from an Indigenous capital organization to build the space
  • My first retreat is going to be focused on deep spiritual experiences
  • I will run the first Initiation 2.0 to focus on psychic, group readings and business
  • I’ve already had some plans stripped away, so this could change
