The Art of Lightwork + Making Money

As you begin to read this post, I already know there is a part of you that is ready to serve. That wants to help others heal, feel happier, and make a difference in the world. Perhaps you’re a teacher, a life coach, or a yoga instructor. Whatever your title, there is a communal sense of wanting to elevate, expand your reach, and be known for making a true impact on us all.

I feel this because that’s me at my core. Every since I was young, I knew I was meant to have a bright future that would involve reaching out to the masses. I had no idea of the context, but it was going to be special!  Life had an interesting way of showing me how when I lost my way in my early 20s. I didn’t fit into the post college mode and I couldn’t seem to find anything that brought me fulfillment and joy. So I found drinking and other activities that would distract me until one day even that wasn’t enough. It led me to get help and figure out what it meant to love myself like I did when I was young and discover my purpose. I was realigned with my desires for greatness and also realizing that I was to help others that lost their way. I pursued life coaching and teaching meditation as my new career and there was no greater feeling than giving people permission and space to feel good. In time, I found that bringing in my love of metaphysical + spiritual studies could help people even further and as a coach it was a magnetizing blend.

And so as you read all of this, it sounds quite simple. Girl gets lost. Girl finds her way. Girl helps others. Girl has a thriving career. All is freaking fantastic.

I wish it was that easy, but it wasn’t. It took me a few years to be able to be full time doing the work that I loved. It also meant several failed attempts that left me shameful, broke, and scared.

The biggest one was when I left my Corporate job on the eve of my 30th birthday (2 + half years ago) to be a life coach full time. I was living on a Manhattan budget with 4 months savings and no steady clients. I had just started reading about the law of attraction and watching Abraham Hicks videos and I thought if I just believed and wanted it bad enough, everything would fall into place and I would attract everything I needed.  I was so confident that I booked a trip to Vegas before starting my new venture as well as a music festival weekend in Atlanta. It was all going to work out because I wanted it to.

I had it all wrong. By the time I was 2 months in, I was living on oatmeal, eggs, and the Starbucks gift cards my Dad sent me every week.  I found a side job as a host for an event company that paid me under the table. I would shove leftover dinner rolls into my bag and walk 2 miles home instead of paying for the subway. I hardly slept and I was deep in fear.

The crazy part was that fear didn’t so much have to do with not paying the bills as much as it involved the embarrassment of my failing business. I had my sights set so high and was confident in my relaying to everyone how wonderful and prosperous this would be. I saw so many others in my industry boost about making lots of cash and how easy it seemed. I didn’t understand why them and not me. I was disappointed that I wasn’t making a difference and helping people transform; and further, I was frustrated that I wasn’t making a fruitful income like I hoped for.  Eventually, my money ran out and with much defiance yet no other options besides moving in with my parents, I got another Corporate job.

It wasn’t until that role that I started to see my mistakes with manifesting and how I was treating money. And as often as that job didn’t always feel fulfilling, it did support me. And it gave me the security to continue to live in NYC, try things out in my business, and most importantly, take it responsibility and seriously.  It also brought me to my mentor Gabby Bernstein and her Spirit Junkie Masterclass. Eventually, I was able to leave that job and it was because my business had taken on a clear direction, steady following, and the work was becoming too much to manage between both roles. I also learned to value and respect my money, not just plead with the universe to give it to me. There has to be an ebb and flow of giving and receiving, along with a sweet note of gratitude for abundance to really come into our lives.

We all have different journeys and if you’re ready to serve others or start your own business, realize that it will happen in a way that is truly defined and tailored for you.

Here are just a few things I learned along the way:

It’s okay to have high standards. However you have to earn them first! Personally, I just wanted the sweet style of life without taking the time to create the foundation for it to happen upon. The first step is to feel and harness your desires and then backtrack to build the arc to house them. While the coaching work I wanted to do came from a pure, good place, it wasn’t enough to just want to help people, I needed to put in the effort as to how and then embody it. That sets the tone and then more can come from there!

Redefine what success looks like. There are many people with online businesses that showcase more about their earning capacity and high-level opportunities than actually talking about what it is they do to help serve others. And there’s no judgement in that. The thing to realize however is that if you want to have an online business, it doesn’t mean you have to now also be a millionaire. Maybe you’re a stay at home mom and would like to make enough to fun the family vacation or perhaps you actually like your day job and doing acts of service on the side bring you joy. Remember that how other people handle their business is not the way you have to! Focus on the passion aspect first and then you can bring the money aspect in.

Remember why you started. Most often, the reason many of us start a business or become a life coach or healer is because there is a problem that we can help solve. We awakened to it in some way and it drives us to our core until we do something about it. Though somewhere along the way, the whole thing became capitalized and it’s turned more into a money game than a self help phenomena. Trust that you will be supported financially if you love what you do and you’re clear on how you wish to implement it. And you deserve to make as much money as you want or need. I encourage it!

It’s not until you get into a space that you are aligned and confident around finances that you’ll really be able to do the work that you need to do. I had to learn that before I could successfully run my own business, I had to bust through the money stuff so I could feel open and expansive and ready to help others and serve in that oh so big way.

All of this I had to learn on my own, but that doesn’t have to be the case for you. Take time to access how money plays a part in your life and how it holds you back. Do you let it be an excuse that stops you from being great? Or does it limit your potential to express your talents? Whatever the case, I’m happy to know that there are people dedicated now to helping you through the chaos of cash, so you can be happy, at ease, and doing work you love. I mainly have to give it to my home girl, Amanda Frances, who’s Money Mentality Makeover is literally changing the lives of entrepreneurs and giving people permission to live an abundant life while doing really beautiful heart centered work. You can learn all about the program here!  And because I’m so onboard with all of this (and kinda jealous I didn’t have this 3 years ago but you do!) I’m offering my Cosmic Moon Course, launching this Spring, absolutely free! The Moon course gives you the opportunity to learn about how the Moon relates to Astrology, how the cycles work, and even how to apply your new money manifesting skills to New + Full Moon rituals! It’s a 4 week digital program that is so much fun and I’d love to have you onboard!

I’ll leave you with this money meditation, trusting that the clarity, ease, and respect of abundance flows through you naturally, that you allow in the help to elevate higher and to know that all is working out for your highest good.

How I Successfully Willed Myself to Gain 20 Pounds in a Year

Today marks the one year anniversary of me trying something different. Of the turning point where I realized that certain relationships and situations had to go because they were ultimately distracting me from the big picture of where I wanted to be. A year ago I launched my first Astrology forecast video, setting the tone that I was serious about launching my dreams and bridging together a purpose and a passion. To celebrate, I’m holding a live call on July 9th at 8:30pm EST and you can sign up here. I would love to have you there as I share how I easily blend Astrology into my everyday life!

Up to this point however, there was always something nagging me. A nasty fear. It was the worry that I would gain weight and thus lose my credibility. It was that constant concern that actually willed me to manifest what I was so turned off by and in the span of 12 months, I managed to put 20 pounds onto my being.  As much as I hated it, there was a strange satisfaction from my ego, taunting me that everything I was building in my outside world could crumble if I don’t get this in check. And with every pound, it was confirming such.

It wasn’t until last week when the universe literally pushed me to my knees on my run, that I realized I needed to shift.

The weight gain was two fold really. At will, I’m an addict. When things are too good to be true or completely unknown, I reach. It use to be more brash substances such as alcohol or drugs however I’ve since learned to not to reach for those in desperate times. Instead, I went back to my old stomping grounds, food. The excitement of making my dreams a reality, of having people turn to me for guidance and being an expert in something was incredible. I didn’t know what to do with the rush of feelings so I grounded myself with food. Every single time. A successful event meant pizza to follow. A client makes a break through and I praise them afterward with ice cream. Instead of sitting with the glee, I had to transfer it to another source. My world was expanding, and apparently that applied to my waist line too!

There is also a pattern in our society, that when you’re thin you get attention. Either flattery or concern. When you’re overweight, everyone leaves you alone. After puberty, I was typically on the heavier side and was in a constant pursuit of body normalcy. However every time I lost pounds, I was hit back with waves of attention which I hated. People want to know how I did it or if I went overboard. I couldn’t never win. I just wanted to enjoy my healthy body and dress it up in fun new outfits. I didn’t like the new standard of approval I had to meet and would constantly fall back to my old ways. And as of recent, with launching a new business, I found comfort in the fact that I could hide behind the weight and no one would bring up my body or dissect it if I happen to lose more. It also kept me from other things that would distract me, like dating. I subconsciously created an armor to protect anything from getting in my way. Not stopping to realize that the more you close off, the more space you block from ultimately expanding in.

It is only fitting, a year later and steadily in the business I wanted (and truly am in love with), that this issue reach it’s peak. When I fell last week, scraping my hands and bruising my knees, it left me out of commission and I felt a whole new wave of appreciation for my body. It limited my ability to move freely and go about my day to day as I come to know. However that’s a freaking good thing. I needed a change up so I could see that this trending agony of weight gain could stop. And it’s more than the actual weight and image concerns, for me, it’s about going deeper. Of realizing I deserve this life I have created. I am worth it and have value to bring to others. And most importantly, I don’t have to ground my light. Those feel good vibes I get are gorgeous and meant to be contained, not weakened by an outer source. Today, I’m making the commitment to drop my armor. To embrace my life with love and reflect that back onto my body. To nurture the vessel that holds my beautiful soul. Today I know longer have to perfect anything. I can bask in the perfection that is the right now and the moments to follow will follow suit.

If you’re looking for ways to strengthen your relationship with food and your body, I encourage you to check out my friend and mentor Gabby Bernstein’s program Finally Full.

And here’s just a few more tips from me to you:

1. Full Acceptance. When I was building my business, there was a fear that maybe this wasn’t meant to be. That my dreams weren’t possible. And so the weight gain was my sneaky way of sabotage. However as much as I tried, my business still grew and I have a following of gorgeous people with the biggest hearts. I saw that they loved me for ME. Not for how my body looked. And honestly, I could be at any size and they would appreciate what I was offering them. And that is because I deliver from the heart. When I am with a client, a group or shooting a video, I am speaking from love and fully on your side. So if you are feeling a disconnect from your body, start to explore the value of what you offer the world. How are you a giver among family and friends? Take full acceptance of that role you hold and treasure it. Give it real worth. And understand that you are not defined by how you look but how your heart radiates and make others feel.

2. Come clean. I had to get real with myself and even vulnerable to shift this growing concern. It’s not easy when you are viewed as a expert in one area to have to admit defeat in another. However I knew that by vocalizing what’s going on (and not writing it off or cracking jokes like I usually do), I could get the encouragement and support I needed in a way to keep me going.

3. Balance. As with anything, moderation is so key. When I look back to my successful moments of a healthy lifestyle, it was filled with exercise I enjoyed, nourishing foods and fun moments with friends where we could explore good food together. It wasn’t the moments of binge eating in front of the TV or using adderall to keep my weight in check. It wasn’t being mean to myself or restricting my intake. Channel the fond memories of food, health and body movement and start to implement those back into your life. Make the joyous feelings of what a vivacious, satisfied body and life feel like the priority.

New Moon is back in action in Aquarius!

With every New Moon, the world becomes a little more vast and a lot more magical. The upcoming lunar cycle on February 18th at 6:47PM EST is proving to be an ultra-special time for you. Typically, the moon enters into a new sign to start off it’s next phase. This time however, it’s entering back into Aquarius and finishing in Pisces, giving you a major opportunity to hit the reset button on your desires and take them to the next level. I really encourage you at the onset of this period to take some time to sit down with your aspirations and assess what needs the most attention right now. From there, call upon the universal energies to give those intentions some high charged juju! Don’t stop there though as the universe will need your help to make them a reality. This is an opportune time to show the world what you are made of by putting your goals into action. Just by engaging in the art of starting, you’ll allow the law of attraction to set in motion and effortlessly start to pull your needs right to you!

February is Reason to Party! Full Moon in Leo, Sensual Venus in Pisces & the end of Mercury Retrograde!

Woohoo to February!

We start out the second month of 2015 with a beautiful Venus entry into the sign of Pisces. This is where all of your senses (including your intuitive 6th sense) will be heightened. It’s a time to dream and romanticize your goals. That’s right, bring a more sensuous side to your desires! The Pisces/Venus pairing will allow you to really slip deep into feeling what it is you are ready to manifest. Instead of just saying what you want, FEEL what it is you are in a space to create. Visualize exactly what you want to happen, with the knowing that it is already yours. Strut through the field of your aspirations and with each step, carry the energy of confidence and clarity. BE-COMING is really just your authentic self coming home to what it already know to be true. Let it happen.

The Full Moon on 2/3 at 6:09PM EST is a time to express yourself and let your passions shine out! It is ruled by the sign of Leo, which is in a prosperous transit with Jupiter right now. This means it’s time to go even BIGGER! The Full Moon is a time of completion, so review where you are ready to go next level and then write those items down. Meditate on them with a deep knowing of their ability to transform into something amazing. Then offer them up in prayer and even burn the list as a way to claim that you are ready to ignite. When we burn, we are asking for the universe to help us take our visions higher. This is definitely a time to make your expectations a reality and when you offer up, you are showing your ultimate faith in the universe.

Lastly, Mercury Retrograde will leave us on Feb 11th! For many of you it was a trying time and for others a super productive one. As we enter this final stretch, keep your schedule light and spend more time taking care of you. That doesn’t mean a binge fest of reality TV and ice cream (well maybe a mini one), however more so finding healthy new ways to reinvest in yourself. Try out a new fitness class or spend the day at the spa. Maybe it even means reorganizing your kitchen. When you spend time restoring yourself, you will discover new ways to be more efficient and productive in the long run!

For more juicy tidbits during the first half of February, watch my latest YouTube video. And as always I love your comments too! Let me know your Full Moon ritual or how you rose above to make Mercury Retrograde work for you!

New Moon in Aquarius & Mercury Retrograde!

Just as the Sun moves through the zodiac every month (which is how you figure out your commonly known birthday sign), the Moon cycles around the astrological signs too!  On Tuesday, January 20th, the next New Moon cycle will start at 8:14AM EST in the sign of Aquarius.  What does this mean for you?  Whether you’re an Aquarian Sun sign or not, you’ll feel the effects of what this sign radiates.  Aquarius is represented as the water bearer.  They are giving, strong willed and here to serve.  Their downfall is often not taking even time for themselves and needing to isolate to avoid wash out.  During this time, I invite you to see where you are looking to give as well as dedicating time for what you need to nurture your own soul.

It is also common to hold a ritual at the dawn of the New Moon.  Within 48 hours of it’s onset (ideally 24 hours), find a quiet, meditative place to journal.  I like to keep one journal to use throughout the year to log my moon writings.  For this particular time, I would love for you to go big!  The cosmos are lining you up for transformation and it’s an opportunity to cultivate the seeds from your subconscious and redirect them for optimum growth.  Where do you feel most connected on your journey right now?  What deep visions are ready to go forth?  Use your intuition and trust as you write.  Be open minded and allow the dreams to come out to play so they can be made into your reality!  Keep the journal in a safe place and await for the next steps at the Full Moon in Leo on February 3, 2015!

Another planetary shift is Mercury Retrograde from January 21-February 11, 2015.  Many people freak out during this time because this planet rules communication, technology and messages.  I am assuring you that it will be okay!  Any mishaps that may happen are just to teach you a lesson to stay positive and to also SLOW DOWN.  It’s a reminder for when we have too much on our plate and when we are overloaded, then clearly there is more room for error.  I encourage you to rise above this Mercury RT and smile when a miscommunication or tech glitch arises.  Stay organized and give yourself room to breathe.

And watch my latest forecast for even more details on the cosmos during the month of January!

p.s. I freaking LOVE your questions & comments!  Send me an email at danielle@daniellemercurio.com or leave a comment below!

2015 Astrology Forecast – January’s Capricorn Sun & Cancer Full Moon!

Happy magnificent 2015!!

We are in that beautiful moment at the start of the year when everything and anything seems possible. Unlimited new beginnings, business ventures, healthy ambitions and elevating love all are set in our sights. We are ready to leave behind what didn’t serve us in the past year. And there was much. 2014 brought forth many shake ups, hardships and bold shifts into our lives. We had to face much and in turn lessons were presented. We were shown our resilience and strength, our ability to adapt, and most importantly, our capacity to trust was accelerated. This was all in due course to present you with the gateway to more peace, prosperity and abundance into 2015. We cannot be grateful for the gains if we didn’t appreciate the glorious comebacks we were pushed to make. Before you get too far ahead of yourself into the New Year, take the time to honor the past, the teachings that were presented and the messages you followed. For you wouldn’t be here, in this very moment, beaming with pride and faith for the future otherwise!

January truly does set us off in a wonderful tone for the year ahead. Major trends are cultivation, lifting final blocks and a sense of freshness. We continue to move through the Sun in Capricorn, which is a time for focusing on our goals, organization and structure. Continue to comb through the areas of your life you are ready to put the work into. Remember that you must be willing to give what you are asking to receive. In numerological terms, 2015 adds up to 8 and is the year of abundance and infinite prospects! Note however, this will come together when combined with hard work, clarity and patience. So take advantage of this Sun direction to really get laser sharp on what you truly want to manifest and how will go about doing so. No need to get too far ahead of yourself either. By getting clear on the intentional first steps of a goal, you’ll find that move guidance will come once put into motion. Look at your relationship with the Universe as a partnership and the two of you are building something grand together!

The Full Moon will enter Cancer on January 4th at 11:53PM EST. The full moon embodies taking action and elevation to the next level. Perhaps you had set intentions during the last New Moon/Winter Solstice or are just ready to escalate your New Year’s intentions. Whatever it may be, take this time to offer them up to the universe and go easy on yourself in the process. With the moon in the governing sign of Cancer, it is about mothering, nurturing and inner healing. It’s easy to get excited in the realm of new beginnings, however stray from going so big that you overwhelm yourself! Set reasonable expectations and infuse them with a loving heart. Goals created in love over haste are surely to grow brighter and richer.

The Sun will move into Aquarius on January 21st. This is a time to focus on your independence and personal freedom. You will also be moving into a generous and giving mode and you should take advantage to see where you can best serve! Protect yourself first and make sure your needs are met too. It’s a lot harder to provide for others when you haven’t made yourself a priority. Watch out for burn out and schedule lots of time for rest and restoration. The New Moon goes in Aquarius the day prior and again it’s a time to reflect on what you would like to put out into the world and receive back just as fully.

Brace yourself as we slip into Mercury Retrograde also on January 21st until February 11th. This planetary transit occurs alongside the Aquarian Sun which is actually a good position for it to be in. Utilize the power it provides the inner self to see things from a different perspective. Get yourself super prepared before this date hits, back up your computer and don’t overload your schedule. This isn’t the time to make decisions that involve others. This retrograde will open you up to deep inner knowledge and I encourage you to take advantage of the innovative thoughts that may arise. It will allow you to think more outside the box and be less afraid to speak your truth. Keep a steady mind and use good judgment. As always, I invite you to use this as an opportunity to rise above the Mercury Retrograde and let your inner wisdom shine out!

For January’s card reading, I pulled from Sonia Choquette’s Oracle Deck, “The Answer is Simple”. Upon answering for the guidance in your best interest for the month ahead, I received the card “Spread the Light”. This goes perfectly with the Aquarius Sun urging us to be the light to not only help others but realize our inner truth as well. You are powerful and inspirational and it can even heal those around you. One of the most potent healing acts of Spirit is to witness and acknowledge its light in others. Look around and notice who’s in need of being seen. Notice those whose light of Spirit is dim or at risk of going out, and reignite their fire with your recognition. Tell others that you love their Spirit. Don’t be afraid to speak this out loud. To be seen in the light of your soul is a very healing experience and easily spread. Give compliments. Acknowledge when someone is helping you. Write a letter to an elder. Give an extra tip to your server. Smile more. Use people’s names. See the light in someone whom you have the most trouble appreciating. These are all acts of healing in their own rite. This will heal you. You’ve been called to spread the light! Enjoy.

spread the lightIndividual Forecasts:

Aries (Mar 21st-Apr 20th) What does 2015 have in store for you? This is a question you constantly seem to keep asking yourself. The last few years have been a lot of fun; filled with new adventures, friendships, and even romance. And you’ve worked hard through the course of it all as productivity is the key to your life force. However where has all of this led you? Is this the lifestyle you want to maintain going forward? As these thoughts continue to run through your mind, I encourage you to take the time out to journal and reflect on who you are. What is it that YOU love to do? What does your ideal partner feel like? What does it look like to put in a solid day of work? Freely write through all of these questions and then assess how your current situation compares. Take an honest look and explore how you want to fill in the gaps or what needs to shift. Understand that the world is full of limitless possibilities and you don’t have to settle at the first one. Use your bravery to invite in the one that speaks truest to your heart.

Taurus (Apr 21st-May 20th) Time to get back to work! You may have strayed over the last few months from some of your daily obligations and responsibilities as new situations made you question how you see the world. You may have even felt like you wanted to isolate yourself at times. As we move into 2015, it’s a chance to reassess how you’re getting back into the game again. You’re a natural when it comes to hard work and dedication, so this will be no sweat for you. Make some calculated decisions that incorporate your recently adapted way of being and also understand that the universe is creating a more steady structure for you. Balance will be a more common theme for you once again!

Gemini (May 21st-Jun 20th) You blossom into 2015 with your usual sense of light hearted playfulness and excitement! You love any opportunity to wipe the slate clean and renew your soul again. And this is a year it is definitely welcomed to do so! You are particularly optimistic right now when it comes to your love life, career and finances. Your head is in the cosmos and nothing seems to faze you at this point in time. While this is a beautiful space to exist in, there may be moments where you will be called to be a bit more grounded. It’s wonderful to dream however you must be willing to put in the work too. That means actually asking for the raise with the evidence to back up why or creating a real dating account instead of opting for just using photos on Tinder. All your anticipation is truly well received and just allow yourself to take it a step further. That combination will make you wildly irresistible and unstoppable!

Cancer (Jun 21st-Jul 22nd) Right now everything seems to be falling into place, especially in your home life. All is coming together as you always saw it, the right partner, beautiful home and loving family. Take this opportunity to be grateful for your blessings and acknowledge this to those you love as well. It will only enhance the feelings of devotion and happiness and create deeper harmony. Continue to make time for family and friends. Throw a party just for the sake of it or bring homemade cookies to work! By continue to share your gifts, you’ll feel just as delighted as those who receive them.

Leo (Jul 23rd-Aug 22nd) Everything has been going your way these days, however at the same time you know they could be even better too! This month is great opportunity to review your daily routine, projects and aspirations. Look closely to where you may be unnecessarily burning your energy. You don’t always have to say yes to every opportunity that comes your way! You are a natural leader and very likable, as such people are naturally drawn to you. Know that with any situation you have to turn away; another will resurface when you are ready for it. Continue to stay organized and prioritize your top goals for 2015.
