Mom.

By Jessi Risley | May 10, 2020 |

Its said that every mom and every child are unique. Special characteristics, personalities, quirks and amazing attributes that all equal to an unexplainable amount of love for another being. This Mother’s day I look at my two small kids in awe. I think of our trials and triumphs, the day each were born and the…

When darkness rises.

By Jessi Risley | May 8, 2020 |

The road may seem dark, it may seem off center, yet only you can navigate past the confusion to the other side. Darkness is part of each of us.  How you hold it depends on you.  You may find that it hurts to let it go, while others bury theirs at first sight. For me,…

Flower Moon.

By Jessi Risley | May 7, 2020 |

During an intense time in her life, she rose to see herself as a flower blooming for the first time.  She stood in the field surrounded by openness and promise.  Not a moment too soon, as she inhaled the sweet scent of wildflowers, she was filled with strength in a way she had never felt…

You Already Are All That You Desire.

By Jessi Risley | April 28, 2020 |

These are the words that came to me in a deep state of meditation.  I sat there in silence, looking at myself staring back at me when these words were spoken. “You already are all that you desire”. I shivered.  I sobbed.  I realized that all that makes me unique and an asset to this…

Squeeze the shit out of those things!!! Seriously.  Who can honestly say life hasn’t thrown them a curveball a time or two?  Right.  No one.  So, what’s the antidote to all things shit?  MAKE LEMONADE!

Actions Speak Louder than Words.

By Jessi Risley | April 20, 2020 |

Last week I spoke of characteristics.  Of how others perceive you – as to how and who you should be.  This isn’t entirely the same point, yet goes along with who you choose to be. Actions speak louder than words. When you think of this statement, what comes to mind?  For me, its being an example.  I…

Love yourself first.

By Jessi Risley | April 13, 2020 |

As you sit here reading this, you’re probably wondering why I’d begin with such a statement. Let me explain. As a relationship coach, and someone who had to go through my own version of hell to realize the detriment of my relationships, I can speak as frank as possible to say: Love yourself first so…

Embracing change.

By Jessi Risley | April 10, 2020 |

Human nature has taught us many things, yet most of them are wrong.  We grow up in a world that shapes us to believe who we are told we are. Only when we realize we are who we decide to be, is when our internal world really takes shape. If you’re like me, I had to…

Look Within.

By Jessi Risley | April 1, 2020 |

Here’s a story that most people don’t know.  I tell it now, not because I feel anyone needs to know the happenings of my relationships, yet to understand how powerful we are as humans. We hold the power to change our entire reality; our entire world. A few short years ago, I felt lost.  Completely lost within…

Words of wisdom

By Jessi Risley | March 26, 2020 |

When seeking wisdom to travel through life’s bumpy road, one tends to create scenarios of confusion, rather than clarity. To become what we are afraid to see ourselves as is often a challenge far bigger than we can comprehend. To be what we most fear, to be the icon – the beacon – the trailblazer…
