Mirror, mirror, on the wall….

10645096_10152659933964547_5353767089466624364_nI was standing in front of the mirror in the dressing room in the upscale department store, looking at the reflection of the pretty, fit and lean brunette in a beautiful cocktail dress. She turned right and left in front of the mirror, trying to find the usual flaws in her appearance. The mirror was true to itself and continued reflecting back an attractive body standing in front of it. I was surprised, because only couple of hours ago in a different mirror this very same body didn’t look as lean. In another mirror the image was that of a shorter, stockier body, not the one I so wanted to see…. I turned around again…. Sigh…. It downed on me that perhaps a store was using ‘skinny’ mirrors. People would look thinner and more attractive to themselves in their mirrors, and would purchase more clothes.
I walked out without a dress. I didn’t trust the mirror there to buy this dress. How often would I buy something that looked so good on me at the store, but looked awful at home!.. Then it downed on me… How can I possibly know the truth? Which mirror is saying the truth? The skinny one or the fat one? The reflection in the mirror is just that! A reflection! An Illusion! Neither one is truth! How many unhealthy decisions are made daily by thousands….millions?!?! of women based on believing this reflection, which is being seen through the filters of our perception of ourselves? The perceptions and expectations of the society? The perceptions and beliefs of our unworthiness? How often did I avoid looking at this mirror avoiding being disappointed in myself…. Ladies!!!! This mirror thing is NOT a true representation of who you are, or even what you look like! You are magnificent, gorgeous, amazing beings! Worthy of love and appreciation! Worthy of adoration! You are a miracle! and so am I!
I love you all!!!

Last Call…

IMG_3915Getting ready to present tonight at the Evening of Inspiration, Gong Healing and Book Signings at the Awakenings Center for Spiritual Living. Just writing these words puts me in the state! Almost four years ago on my birthday I firewalked to the thunderous voice of Tony Robbins. When Tony spoke, my heart was pumping faster, and I could feel a surge of energy. When I came home from the event, I was almost dancing. I think I’ve announced to some family members that I am going to be a speaker. I was 41 and super accomplished figure skating coach. People looked at me as if I was out of my mind. They told me so, too! Some did, who had guts to say it, instead of just nodding politely….They also told me that it was impossible….
“Well,” I thought, “People told me that it was impossible to make it to the Nationals, let alone win it, and don’t even dare to dream to become an Olympic coach!” That’s totally “impossible”……It was….. for them…I was able to breakthrough all their “impossible barriers…” Becoming a bestselling author and world class speaker couldn’t be more difficult than that! So, why not give it a try? Come to support me, and give me a feedback…. What do you think? Do you think I could do it one day? What could you do one day? What’s your dream?….

Read Only If You Are Superachiever

I am Talented. I have a vision. I know what I want. I am willing. But I can’t see myself from behind. I need a feedback, an accountability and a mentorship. Sometimes I need a kick in the butt. Most important I need someone to believe in me, and to inspire me. Sometimes I think I’m amazing, but it gets me nowhere. Then this coach comes to me and shows me all the places where I could have improved. This could save me years of frustration. Sometimes I feel like I’m going nowhere, I feel like a failure, I feel like I can’t do it. The coach stands by me, holds my vision, helps me to heal and breakthrough the blocks and believes in me completely! This coach is expensive, but what I get from this relationship is priceless. I get to be my best self! I know that I have a team, and my progress matters to this person! This person is proud of me! I am proud of me!… I love both positions; the one of the student and the one of the coach. I understand both equally well. It’s impossible to succeed unless you’ve been in both positions with the same rigor and drive, passion and devotion!

For 22 years I coached competitive figure skating. I yelled, pushed, pulled, begged, dragged, inspired, believed, sweet-talked, persuaded, hugged, told stories, commanded, shaped, listened to, healed and lead my students into the battles with their competitors, into the battles with themselves, into the battles for their self-worth, their place in the world, their knowing who they are, their confidence and hope, their passion and conviction. And then I repeated it all over for myself. This really have been my entire life, my purpose and my mission. That’s what I live for every day. This is not an average person’s lifestyle. But I’m not an average, I wake up early and go to sleep late. I practice my craft. I don’t watch TV. I meditate and journal. I believe that if I show up for the world, the world will show up for me. And even if it doesn’t, I show up for me; to be the best that I can be, and that is already enough. If you are like me, and this is the model of life you want to follow, I accept a very limited number of students that I will personally train to become a world-class YOU! If this message touches your heart, touches your soul, message me and we’ll talk about how you could become my student, become your best Self, become world-class MASTER!

With all my love!!!
Yours….
Coach Faye

Traffic Ticket Lesson

Posted by:

iStock_000040509116Medium

The police lights were flashing behind me.
“Shoot! What’s now?” I silently swore as I was pulling towards the curb. Second ticket in a week! What’s going on? I haven’t had tickets in 15 years!!! And this week – two!?! I was driving on the small suburban street, I didn’t text and I didn’t speed. I was in a hurry, though, to get to a networking event, wishing very much to be there on time — to set an example of honoring commitments. But it won’t happen today! It won’t happen, because I wasn’t self-aware, wasn’t in the moment, wasn’t focused and present.

I was sitting in a car waiting for the officer to approach me. A vision of a few unfortunate events of the recent past flashed through my mind. Feelings of intense sadness overcame me. I started sobbing feeling sorry for myself. Something was going on in my body; it urinated blood for a couple of days, I felt tired and bloated, scared too. My divorce just kicked in, and I was loosing my medical insurance and had to find and pay for a car insurance also … and now … another ticket!!! The officer bend over to bark out the contents of my offense. Stop sign!
“Lady, officer X. Did you see a Stop Sign?”
“Yes, officer, I did see it, and I believe I stopped!” I mumbled. I remembered slowing down at intersection. There was another car, coming from my left, but I was determined to be first! So I was, but not for long… I wasn’t fully conscious of what happened. I was thinking ahead, thinking of what I was going to say, rehearsing conversations with people at the event in my head… Now this conversation came to an abrupt end. I heard a small voice coming out of my mouth telling officer how I was dying being sick, having no money and going through divorce. Tears rolling down my cheeks confirmed authenticity of my victim’s story. The success of this operation depended on the softness of the officer’s heart, and his decision not to give me a ticket. He was sweet, empathetic and kind. Good man. He bought into my story, and felt sorry for me. He still gave me a well-deserved ticket.

I entered the freeway. Ticket was thrown on the passenger’s seat, with my coming-to-an-end-insurance and registration, the last documents of my married life. It was hard to see freeway through the eyes filled with water. But I wasn’t crying for my divorce, money, or health issues, not even for a ticket. I was crying in embarrassment of myself, for being weak, and for playing a victim. Every day I wake up, I do my morning ritual, work out, and set an intention of living my day as a world-class speaker, coach and a bestselling author. To be an inspiration to myself and others, to take responsibility for my feelings and actions. Every day I vow to set an example, to be my best Self! Everyday I push some limit! But now there was nothing inspiring about me. I was embarrassed by my little self hiding behind the excuses. I didn’t feel any empathy for a little girl who was afraid to be punished, who was caught doing something wrong, who was trying to protect herself by blaming the events of her life. I was angry with her, because she rubbed me of my confidence, rubbed me of my self-worth, my power… I was angry with my self … for giving my power away…

I am a bad girl… I ruined my mother’s confidence, my mother’s self-worth … shuttered my mother’s dreams … broke my mother’s heart….

…Mic in my hands. My voice comes out clear and strong. My posture is confident and powerful. Years of practice and training. My body knows how to take a stand. I speak of empowerment and inspiration. It’s a success. No one seems to notice what an incongruent liar I am. Back in my car, tormented by my emotions I can reflect on my feelings, judgements and beliefs, find the blocks and the issues to be healed.
Suddenly, in my minds eye I see a world-class skater making a gross mistake in the beginning of her program. It’s a crucial moment.
She can choose to decide that she is no longer a world-class athlete.
She can choose to decide that she is a loser who does not deserve to continue staying in competition.
Or she can choose to regroup and rebound, making the best of each moment that comes now, that comes next!
She can choose to see herself as a winner overcoming an obstacle.
Or she can choose to see herself as a lying impostor who didn’t deserve to have any success after making a mistake….
Here lies a lesson of humility, self-love and self-appreciation….

I saw the scared little one again. She was seven, cute, with this funky looking haircut, and the swollen red eyes….She was expecting the thunderous punishment for her behavior. She had to carry the burden of her mother’s self-worth on her shoulders…. “Sweetie, it’s not true that you are unworthy, or responsible for my worthiness! It’s not true! You are so beautiful, and strong, and I am proud of you! I hear how scared you were, and I get it! It’s okay. We learn and grow. And this is another opportunity for us! I am so proud of you for not giving up, and showing up, and doing your best! I am your biggest fan! I promise you to stand by your side every time you make mistakes, and every time you win! From now on, lets be a part of the same team!” I imagined holding her in my arms. She looked up at me and asked, “Could you share this story with others, maybe there is someone else out there who is struggling through the same issue…”

I once again want to thank you all!!!

What’s next?

An inspirational, potentially life transforming book is only that when it’s being read! Please, do read her! Come back to this page for discussion, ask questions, share insights, share how it moved you!

When I was a little girl I got inspired by one woman’s love and belief in me that I could create something big, that I had a huge potential in me! Later I found out that she was right, that I really did have that potential!!! Later still, I found out that EVERYONE has this humongous potential, and that I LOVE inspiring others to discover theirs! What happened here wasn’t about my book hitting #1, it wasn’t about ranking and pride, it was about experiment in discovering what’s possible for us when we decide to follow our dreams! In my life I faced many “nay”-sayers. Many of them were from my own family. That’s harder to deal with, because you know that they want what’s best for you, right? The truth is, they do! But!!!! They don’t know what’s best for you!!! No one does, except for you!!! YOU know what’s best for you!

Follow your heart!

Follow your dreams!

Follow your intuition!

Follow what inspires you!

Let Choreography of Awakening inspire you to not only discover your potential, but to follow your dreams! If you, like me, find joy and great sense of fulfillment in inspiring people to be the best they can be, and watch them unfold their magic, then the first most important step you must take is–get yourself inspired first!!!! Do something each day that will inspire you, infuse yourself with this great Divine energy! Every day I make it my business–to find a way to inspire myself! I MUST be inspired to inspire others! Reading books like Choreography of Awakening does that for me! It’s like a morning coffee for a day, only better!

Can’t wait to hear from you and get into conversation!!! Lots of LOVE!! Be inspired!!! And thank you for inspiring me today!!!!

Book Launch Coming Close!!!

Posted by:

Hey!!!

Tonight! At Midnight I launch my book on Amazon.com! Well, officially it’s tomorrow…. But tomorrow starts at midnight, right?  So technically….

Okay, I don’t want to confuse you :).

So, yeah! Launching !!! Whoa! 2.5 years in making!
To celebrate this event, I dropped all my royalties and commissions so that anyone could afford to buy a book… or two… or three….

From midnight tonight, till midnight tomorrow night, paperback edition is offered for only $11.00! or e-book on Kindle for $1.99!!!
Personally, I am an old-fashioned gal, and love to hold the real book in my hands, but if you like the convenience of immediate download, convenient storage, etc. definitely go for Kindle.

Ohhhh, did I mention give-aways?!?!

The first 20 buyers will get Ken Dickson’s Kindle-version book– Detour From Normal. Check it out, he’s story will blow your mind away!

The first 3 buyers will get 30 min coaching session with me in person or Skype! I wish I could give away more sessions, but my time-resource is limited, so act fast!

What is the purpose of this launch? To drive up the ranking of the book to best-selling list. That is one of the way of making my dream a reality. My grand purpose is to awaken the inner potential in my readers, my clients…. all I come into contact with. There is a way to create our lives at a higher level! My book brings that message through. It inspires and empowers people.

See what some of my readers are saying about my book:

“I am loving your book…” ,
“Your book is helping me to stay focused…,”
“I finished your book last week-WOW!”….
”Loving your book…,”
“I LOVE your book! It’s full of wisdom, magic and it’s fun to read!”
“It’s breathtaking! Powerful! It suffocated me in the throat area…”
“I LOVE your book….I’m waking up the sleeping dragon….sparked some really fun, really intense, surprising energies in me…I LOVE IT!”
“I just finished your book! I loved it!!!! This WILL be a best seller!!!”
“I am so so thankful for your gift of honesty that stirred my soul. This book will change lives…..”

Now, we all know people who go only after status. They buy things from special brands… they follow someone with a celebrity status… in other words, they go for prestige! That means that there are many well-written books with amazing messages that never reach their audience, because these books don’t have “best-sellers’ status attached to them, and their authors don’t have a big list of friends! But, when a book has this “BEST-SELLER” status, it has a chance! I know, it’s sad, but that’s how it is! Your buying my book tomorrow will give it that chance!

So… I will be waiting to receive a contact-form from you through my website, or just drop me a short e-mail, letting me know that you bought a book and in which format, and I’ll personally thank you, and will let you know if you are a winner of one of the giveaways.
Please share this with your family, friends, colleagues, students…and ask them to share….

Thank you so much for participating and supporting me!

Love, Love, Love!!!!
