Fasting (See My Stories!)

Fasting (See My Stories!)

I love a sexy heel, but I’m more comfortable in hiking boots.

Ask me to choose between going to a fancy dinner or trek that next peak or valley (no matter how hot or heavy the pack), no matter if that peak or valley be physical, emotional or spiritual, and I’ll choose door number two every time. 

Never let a woman’s painted nails, profession or those heels (that can’t wait to come off) fool you…

Tomorrow, I start on my next three day water fast, which was first planned and trained for in 2019.

Back then, I ended up doing four days of a water fast in the wilderness. Only drinking water vs. abstaining from water, which is what some think it is] inside a nine day vision quest.

It was an awe-some, moving and tranquil experience (albeit a little dizzying at times being 7,000 feet up ~ but nothing compared to its physical, emotional and spiritual benefits).

This round, just like the last few. December of 2020 being the last fast, will support immune function, gut health & healing. I have healing to do, cell regeneration and a release of toxins.

Of course, chatting with your doctor or nutritionist is always recommended before doing one, but there are research articles and videos galore available online if you’re curious to learn more about the health benefits before speaking to a practitioner familiar with the practice.

Follow along in my Facebook and Instagram stories if you’re interested in my take and process!

THIS Is Your Inheritance!

THIS Is Your Inheritance!

YOU GOT YOU (this is your inheritance!).

*Creating a meaningful connection to ourselves* is the deepest of all work we don’t get paid for (in the traditional way).

But it’s the best work. Highest emotionally-paying work. What I believe we are all attempting to do when we say yes to any kind of personal development or therapy. As well as what we feel like inside (or after) experiences in adventure travel, dance, music or art…

We feel OF ourselves (belonging to ourselves) and we feel *more* ourselves.

THIS Is Your Inheritance!

This “meaningful connection to ourselves“ is what self-love IS and what it feels like.

The sense of self that knows, no matter who dies or what goes away (money, relationships, health or looks), that y o u got you.

You would know because you’ve gotten to know yourself so damn well (and always more to come and uncover) that you know, without a shadow of a doubt, that you are and would be your own ride or die.

This meaningful connection comes back to finding out who we REALLY are beneath it all. Not who others want you to be or who you, maybe, were to them *before*. And what we’re REALLY made of — proudly standing atop that life experience and, in many ways, atop the shoulders of ancestors whose life experiences we were also built *from* (this structure in Tulum back in November reminded me of my Mayan roots… innovative, strong of body, mind & spirit, mystical, deeply connected to nature…and to *their* nature).

I think many self-love articles leave many wondering, like, what is it…what is self-love really? It’s such an ethereal concept and it’s also not as “easy” as baths, time alone or communing with nature often.

For me, this deepest connection to myself has been found and re-found through acknowledging this. Where I come from. Specifically and generally, what I’ve lived through (owning my unique life experience) that leads me (you, too) to what we’re built for and most capable OF and going out and doing *that*

The pride and meaning found in that, in all of it…ooph!

THIS is our inheritance!! Do we need anything more?

Date Yourself! (Married Or Single Ladies)

Date Yourself! (Married Or Single Ladies)

I’m dating myself more these days. Every woman should date herself. Every woman can. That’s right… Date Yourself! (Married Or Single Ladies)!

It’s awesome to date Josh and I do, but this is a whole other delectable thing. 

For those married or single, it’s good to remember that love waits for no one and no thing.

Centering Sessions Available

Centering Sessions Available

I’m not sure which entrepreneur, business owner or self-starter needs to hear this. I know I’ve needed to hear it multiple times:

It’s time to shift up…time to give yourself a promotion.

Just because you have a particular type of business or have been living and breathing in a particular industry for a long time does not at all mean you have to stay there.

Sometimes something that has been working really well can work better (FOR YOUR LIFE) if you actually leave it [just because you’re good at something doesn’t mean it’s good for you…anymore].

Whatever the other business idea or evolution in focus you’ve been thinking about for a long time is, as the world re-opens, why not re-open to the full capacity of yourself, too?

And while we’re all at it, let’s give thoughts, friendships, daily routines and maybe the rushed way we have conversations or never get back to text messages a promotion, too!

>>>> Your creative power (aka your life experience) knows no bounds, so create what’s actually boundless and new!!!


Though for over a decade, I have never offered one-off sessions, I started offering the following Centering Sessions during COVID. I realized that many people felt either stuck or a renewed charge or sense to do what they really wanted to do versus what they thought they had to do (or keep doing).

These were sessions, I had hoped, that would support a current business owner, a NEW business owner or creator in creating ANEW, all aligned best to what was true for them in this NEW moment (we are not the same people we once were)…

To my elation, this was, in fact, the case (!): new clients received the direction and clarity they most needed. A good 50% of them simply needed that one session to spark them into clear and directed action. Others began working consistently with MGI towards a launch, the complete plan or the brand language and messaging.

I haven’t offered them in some months. I was focused on serving my ongoing full-time private clients. However, in May I’m making room for another handful of sessions. I want to support you in understanding what’s next inside your business and/or brand evolution!

It’s time to e v o l v e.

Let’s get you energized to finally move in the direction of what’s most passionate, profitable and, we could say, even playful for you. 

If last year taught us anything it’s this. Don’t go back to what you were doing. Just because you might’ve been good at that something, doesn’t mean it’s good for YOU anymore.

Do what you’re MADE for and finally ready FOR…

~>>> A Centering Session might be for you if you have been:

  • Mulling over different things you’d like to do with your business or creative project but are stuck or feeling stagnancy getting the best of you…
  • Need help answering brand-related questions
  • Can’t figure out what to do first on the list you’ve been compiling for over a year 
  • Know that you need/want to fold the “different” parts of you or NEW offerings INTO what you do moving forward (all under one cohesive umbrella)…

Centering Sessions Available

Again, MGI has four (4) Centering Sessions Available throughout the month of May. I want to help move you to clarity around the next right action, as well as your next three (3) exact steps for both the business and the brand.

As mentioned, the Centering Session will get you unstuck, centered and moving!

Here’s how it works:

1. You register for the hour and fifteen minute session ($250) and choose a day and time that works for you.
3. You fill out a quick questionnaire (I’ll walk you through the different things I need to know via the questions we ask inside).
4. We hop on for our hour and 15 minute call (over the phone or over Zoom).
5. You leave with your plan of next steps as well as clarity around the overall path the business/project and brand should take. 

Let us know if you’re interested in one of the Centering Session spots (there are 4 available) by simply emailing admin@michelleghilotti.com (we will likely can I offer these again for some time). 

I’d love to support you in moving your ideas forward. Not to mention your ENERGY, too (stagnancy is an energy thing!).
