We had the good fortune of connecting with Stephanie Carlin and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Stephanie, how do you think about risk?
I was raised to be careful and cautious – “Dont climb that tree! Don’t run too far!” It took a lot of unlearning to realize that my success requires risk. That if it feels risky, I’m probably on the right path. If I feel terrified, or at my edge, it’s become my job to run straight towards that feeling and say hell yes. And from there, I grapple with whatever limiting beliefs are keeping me fearful or committed to “safe.”
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Only a couple of years ago you would’ve found me working 4 different jobs: running my songwriting school on the weekends, facilitating energy healings in secret, and being ignored in clubs playing music for pennies. More recently, I wake up with no alarm. I light a candle. I do my deep work. Then I sit by my local waterfall. And I have $10k weeks from home. So much peace. So much power. I unlocked what I now call living in my Truth Vibration. And it’s the joy of my f*cking life to guide my clients to remember their Truth Vibration.
What could life be like if you commit to your highest and best work? When i commit, the shifts happen quickly. But so do the spiritual deaths. The recognition of what is dead in our life even if others are pretending it’s still alive.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Verdugo Bar for drinks
Little Barn Coffee Shop for morning coffee
Deb’s Park for a long walk
Amara Kitchen for their amazing paleo pancakes
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Have you heard my writing partner’s latest single on Spotify? Go look up Carey Clayton and follow him right now! Oh and @ambrosegtz Instagram reels are making my heart bloom… I get giddy every time she sings.
