You know that judgments are a creation.....right? And yet somewhere along the way, when a judgment comes along you make it yours. You make it dense, solid, and real.....you make the judgment significant and you make other people's judgments significant as if someone else's thought could stop the potency of you.
For every judgment you make significant or buy as real, it is actually a way to create a limitation and cut off your awareness.
Have you ever stopped to think how much judgment you try to process on a daily basis? You know from the depth of your being that 98% of judgments aren't yours, and yet returning it to sender doesn't always work....
If you can't stop a thought, the thought isn't yours.
Young grasshopper....no thought that creates a limitation is actually yours if you are functioning from an infinite being!!
As a female woman raised in an irish Catholic Family I learned to hate my body. I learned to have ZERO appreciation and gratitude for my body. And I also learned that the only way to change my body was to force judgments on it, to starve it, stuff it, ignore it, demand of it, restrict, and criticize it.
Unfortunately, I know that this point of view is not unusual.
How do I know this?
Only 4% of women worldwide consider themselves beautiful? That means if you are one of the 96% of women all over the world, you’ve probably spent your entire life, money, and resources on trying to solve the void you feel of not feeling beautiful enough.
The problem of trying to fix your body can’t be solved in a diet, pill, or external solution outside of you. in fact, those temporary solutions only exacerbate the issue. Any external solution can provide a platform to inform and empower what actually works for you, your body, and your life. However almost every external solution doesn’t address the actual issue of WHY someone is looking outside themselves.
Most women go on a diet to lose weight, but why are they actually doing it? To feel beautiful, to have more energy, to be happy. Losing weight is just one step in the quest for self-awareness and yet it’s rare to encounter a diet that is actually interested in a woman or man’s self-awareness.
The average american woman will spend an average of 30 years of her life on some sort of diet, while spending an average of $1,422 a year on quick fixes that will only leave her feeling more frustrated, less satisfied, and with a hole in her wallet of almost $1,500 a year. Do the math….the average woman will spend close to $43,000 on a diets that perpetuate low self esteem and following someone else’s formula.
It's truly about getting you to wake up....to stop wasting your time trying to solve judgments or fix you, but rather to make a demand of yourself that you start to be intensely aware of everything around you. For every external solution you've decided you think will work, cuts you off from your awareness of the future. Your body is not a robot....and neither are you.
So if you truly would like to create a life that is all about living, not just surviving, but the exuberant expression of living, then it is time to DEMAND to let go of buying judgments as real.
You are not pathetic, you are not screwed up. In fact, you are far more brilliant and beautiful than you have ever given yourself credit for.
Your body has a unique blueprint. It's brilliant and aware and it desires to give you everything you've ever asked for. Your body is an element of your awareness....and yet every time you decide you need to fix your body, you instill a conclusion that your body needs fixing and that something is wrong with you.
Newsflash: There is nothing wrong with you!! There is nothing wrong with your body.
I'm not saying don't do a diet. I'm saying if you do a diet, don't cut off your awareness in the future.
No one thing is the right solution permanently.
The problem isn’t your body or that your body is wrong or that you don’t have enough will power...the problem is that it’s not an external solution that will get you to the peace, joy, and happiness you actually desire. You don’t climb a mountain by taking one step and hoping you get to the top, you take a step every second and you continue to take small steps til you get to the top, and then you climb down. Life is like a continuous set of mountains we ascend and descend all along the way. Every time you climb a mountain, there is a level of confidence, endorphin rush, and a feeling of accomplishment that gets created (and even when it's not easy). Life is constantly about increasing the endorphin rush of accomplishment….that encompasses using your awareness every step of the way….your body is no different...it is a constantly changing creation that desires to walk the mountain with you……
Think about it...barking orders at your body for the rest of your life...will never create the sense of space, peace, and communion you actually desire in your life. So stop the negative self-talk, constantly barking orders at your body, then making your body wrong cuz it didn’t turn out the way you thought it should…..if you did relationship the way you do your body, your relationships wouldn’t last for very long...and yet….20, 30, 40, 50+ years later, your body is still attached to you (it’s still here). Isn’t it time to wake up and create a whole new way of looking at your body, business, and life choices?
If you are tired of wasting money on solutions that continue to perpetuate this idea that you and your body are wrong….you might just want to add this revolutionary way of loving the skin you’re in. Stop the Judgments. You have a choice. They are not yours.
For every judgment, take one step up the mountain and walk away, leave the judgments behind you. Every moment of every day...you have a choice.

Are you ready for a revolution?
Coming to a city near you.
How many minutes of the day do you judge you?
Take a look at it...
Do you judge your body? Your clothes? What you can or can't afford? Do you judge the size of your thighs, or the the wrinkles on your face?
Do you judge your bank account? Do you analyze what you did or didn't do for the day?
Judgment literally can take us out of our awareness. When we make decisions from unawareness, we turn off the intuitive hits and sometimes end up making "cute" decisions.
Did you know that only 4% of women worldwide consider themselves beautiful?
That means that most people on the planet spend a good chunk of time in judgment!! If you had an extra 1-2 hours a day for you....what would you do?
What if you could love the skin you're in?
It's time for a NEW DIET!!
The No Judgment Diet will change the way you look at food, your body, creativity, and your life!!
You see, I was one of those crazy obsessed anorexic, bulimics that spent 23-24 hours a day (yes even in my sleep) obsessing about my weight, calories, food, exercise, what I did or didn't eat, what I did or didn't do to burn calories.
What I did or didn't look like in the mirror. I think I spent at least 2-3 hours every day staring at myself in the mirror....
I'm almost embarrassed to admit that....but that's alot of TIME!!
3 years ago after the birth of my son, I decided to STOP!! I stopped the madness...and something CRAZY happened!!
I started to enjoy my life, love the skin I was in, and enjoy every moment...I even started to enjoy eating food without feeling guilty.
And you know what....
I lost weight (eating bacon, fat, ice cream, pizza, cookies, candy, etc). I felt healther, I had more energy, I exercised less, and I started a business from scratch and had so much creative energy I generated $100,000 in 10 months!!
If you are ready to have more time, more space, more play, less stress, and less judgment, then come join The No Judgment Diet!!

Have you ever kept a secret thinking that no one knew?
The thing I've discovered about secrets is that it's actually obvious someone is hiding something. You might not know what they are hiding, but that they are hiding something...that's true.....and you can usually sense it.
For me, almost my whole life I've been aware of people's insecurities that they hide.
Probably because I was trying to hide mine my whole life.....
My secret WAS that even though I am an incredible body worker, was a talented althete, and an expert on body's....I hated my body. Hated it....
Hated it so much that I came pretty close to starving myself to death....and even then I thought I was fat.
You see, I never thought that I could LOVE my body. I never thought that I would be okay with it. Never.
Until, one day, I found the tools of Access Consciousness....and slowly over time....everything changed!
And little did I know that when I stopped spending hours a day agonizing over what I ate, how much, that I ate too much, not enough, didn't exercise, or needed to exercise 3 hours a day...that all that mental head tripping was keeping me from creating my life. It was like I was in survival mode....only I didn't know it.
Once I shifted my self-hatred and incessant judgment of myself and my body, life got easier, lighter, happier. I lost weight eating ice cream and exercising less. I stopped judging me...and I started creating my life.
I went from broke, depressed, hungry for anything....to traveling the world and lit up facilitating people of all walks of life to create the life of their dreams. You see, what I've found is that most people have no idea how much time they spend judging themselves or worrying about something in their lives...this judgment or worry keeps people from accessing their knowing....and if you cut off your knowing (or awareness) then you can't follow the energy to create your future in a way that is beyond what you can imagine.
My life changed once I found the tools of Access Consciousness. My body changed. My business changed. My relationships changed. My money flows changed. Life got brighter and I got happier.
So whether or not you judge your body, the size of your thighs, your bank account, your communication skills, your age, your success, your retirement....it all stops you from accessing the magic that is inside of each of you.
So my message is....stop judging and start creating. The world is waiting for you to be lit up!
My good friend and amazing facilitator Blossom Benedict interviewed me to share a bit of my story and hopefully inspire others to stop judging their bodies and start actually living the life you were meant to!
If you would like to join me on a 30 day journey that will help you get out of judgment in every area of your life, then please go here to see what the magic is all about!!

One of the places that I’ve judged myself the most is as a mother.I like to call myself a recovering perfectionist,
All I could think about once I had a child was getting everything ‘right’. I used to get hysterical when my first born had to drink tap water or eat food that wasn’t organic. I thought I was doing her body permanent damage! When my second child was born via cesarean instead of a the ‘perfect’ home-birth that I had planned, I launched myself into several months of depression that even my go-to tools of yoga and mediation could not bring me out from under. I couldn’t even get nursing right. After breastfeeding both of my children well past 1 year, my body was consistently 10-15 pounds below my pre-baby weight. I know – not the typical complaint of a new mother, and still, it caused me to feel undesirable, boyish, and like sex was the furthest thing from my mind!
When I came across Katherine McIntosh’s no-judgment diet in her
I’ll Have What She’s Having Program and the tools of Access Consciousness…
…it was the first time that I even became aware of the judgment that I was functioning from.Not just of myself, but of wanting to ‘fix’ everyone else or share what would be the thing that would make everything good and better and perfect for them. I was in a constant state of judging myself for not being good enough and judging everyone else for not choosing what I thought must be ‘right’. NOT FUN AT ALL!!!
When I began Katherine’s program, I thought I’d end some of the judgment towards my body (couldn’t be that much could there be?). I had no idea how it would change every area of my life.
I started to look at myself in the mirror with such gentleness and gratitude that it brought me to tears.Here I had been judging my body, abusing it by going against its knowing, and my body was here, STILL LOVING ME.
How brilliant are our bodies?
And by the end of the no judgment diet and Katherine’s 30 Day program,
the craziest thing happened….
I got out of judgment of every area of my life.
I got out of judgment of my money flows and what business and ‘work’ supposedly mean. Which all led to me increasing my income 10 fold within the span of a few months.
I got out of judgment of my husband and kids and family – which led to so much more ease and joy at home and offers for babysitting and contribution in all other areas.
I got out of judgment of sex and relationship and my body has literally been in tears of gratitude for how much more pleasurable and enjoyable sex and orgasm are now – and what else is possible beyond this??
I now ask my body questions daily about what would contribute to it. I’ve used the no-judgment diet as a way to launch myself full throttle into other Access Consciousness classes and receiving them on a whole new level. I’ve chosen bodywork from Dr. Dain Heer and other brilliant Access facilitators that have shifted my whole reality.
I’ve stepped up and chosen a whole lot more of me, and the change that that has created has been nothing short of magic. I honor what a massive contribution getting out of judgment has been and continues to be, and I am so grateful to Katherine and this program for showing me the door to a completely different possibility.
I wonder what change you can create by choosing no-judgment for you?
