2 Coronavirus in the Ross House – Part One

Coronavirus in the Ross House

If this is your first introduction to me or you’ve never worked with me before, you should know that I consider myself to be a “freethinking, liberal, hippie chick” most of my life. To be honest, that may have been listed on my Myspace account back in the day! But, the caveat to my freethinking spirit is that I’ve always been deeply rooted in the things I can test and I love science! But, not like the test tubes and glasses kind of science (I’ll leave that to my daughter), I like the kind of science you apply to your everyday life!

So, as I’ve studied energy, spirituality and energetic mastery over the past 10 years, I’ve always followed the teachers who support the theory that one should “test” through their own experience, not believe with blind faith. And that, my friend, is how I live life and teach others to evaluate what we “know.”

Before we continue, you should know I am not a medical professional. I have no medical training, and this blog post is in no way written to advise you about what you should do if you contract COVID-19. This is simply mine and my family’s accounts and experience and seemed like the perfect time to respond to all the thoughts, well wishes, and concerns for our house and the wondering of how we are surviving COVID-19.

Somehow, it seems this new strain of coronavirus has been around almost 1 full year and NOW was the time for the house to get it. Please know that as a family we have never been scared of contracting the virus or dying from it, but our love for our fellow humans is strong enough that we have been avid mask wearers, practice social distancing, and have been doing all the things for as long as it’s been asked.

My house is made up of my husband, Brian (46), my daughter, Ceci (5), and two close friends - Katie and Judson (38, 37). I am the primary breadwinner and work from home, so when COVID-19 came to the U.S, other than a few pivots made in my business to move in-person events to an online platform, nothing really changed in our day to day lives. We stopped taking Ceci to the local park and became experts at wearing masks and social distancing.

So when we look back at last week, we can’t honestly be sure how we contracted the virus.

My symptoms started Tuesday evening (December 29th), before I was going to bed. I didn’t feel quite 100%, but chalked it up to having a full work day and not eating as much as I should have. When Wednesday morning came (December 30th), I felt like I had been hit by a bus…  catatonic, not able to move my body with ease, and really, really cold. I felt the same as if I’d gotten the flu, and given my activities for the previous week, that seemed to be a logical explanation. So, I took on REST, which in my experience, is the best method I’ve found to heal. I completed my weekly 3-hour facilitation call and went right back to resting. I started taking detox baths with epsom salt, lavender, and baking soda at least once a day, sometimes more.

On Thursday (December 31), Ceci began moving very slowly and was more sensitive to upsets. One of my housemates wasn’t a full 100%, so we all got in the car to get our Coronavirus tests.

Friday (January 1), I was the first to get my results back and was awarded the gold star for testing positive for COVID-19. Now, on any other day I might have felt good about an accomplishment that warranted an email, a follow up phone call, and so much personal attention! But to have to deal with a call from the Public Health Department to track my whereabouts and trace who I’ve been in contact with seemed somewhat challenging, and had me feel shameful for being in contact with ANYONE.

I will say, in the efforts of tracking the virus, making sure people are made aware, and my natural instinct to care for others, man I felt like an a**hole for being the one to contract it! The irony is that I am the least ‘active’ human I know. I mean, I built my ENTIRE business working from home, and I enjoy it!

It’s the nature of the beast when you care for people and love them as much as I do. Anything that would bring harm to a fellow human being that you were the cause of can hurt your heart. So I left my “You’ve got COVID” call feeling guilty for anyone we may have spread it to and worried for my family.

As of Sunday (January 3), 4 out of 5 people in my house have tested positive. One of my housemates has tested twice, is still negative, and has no symptoms. So, we’ve ruled her as immune for now. We’ve got a full house of COVID and are moving through it…

How are we? What’s it like?

Well, to be honest, it feels like we all have the flu… I mean, we as humans like comparing things we DON’T know to things we DO know, and that is the closest thing I could compare it to! Achey, lethargic, poor appetite, a little cough, some sneezing here and there, and shortness of breath. My kid wants her momma, is quick to cry, and wants to movie binge… as do the rest of us. Not one temperature has gone above 100 degrees and we’ve been downing all the necessary supplements to support our immune systems. Most of us no longer have our sense of smell and taste.  And a few nights ago, we all got to enjoy a nice energetic healing session with my crystal sound bowl… It seems to support and perk us up the next day!

So now, we wait. We heal, sleep, sit back and watch movies, and wait for it to pass over. And of course, I’ll give any updates and insights as they come along!

I appreciate all of the love and light you are sending me. Please know I am sending sooo much love back to you. <3

What is Spiritual Bypassing?

What is "Spiritual Bypassing"?


How do we make the change we want to see in the world? Why do we bother when it seems like change is so far away?

If you’ve been on the planet for the past few months, I think you can agree... 

2020 is here to wake us the ‘F’ up!

Our fellow humans are using this as an opportunity to finally use their voice and speak up about issues that matter… Not just to them, but to us as a collective! There is a transformation happening and we are watching it in real-time on local, federal, and worldwide levels!

For example, here are just a few of the wins that have occurred since the 2020 protests...

 -Los Angeles reduced police budget by $150 million

 -Choke holds outlawed in 13 major US cities as of June 2020

 -Louisville unanimously passed Breonna's Law, which requires police to knock and announce their presence and purpose before entering

 -Federal law now prohibits employers from discrimination on the basis of homosexuality or transgender status

 -New York state police officers are required to wear body cameras

 -Many confederate statues removed in Alabama, Virginia, Florida, Tennessee, and Kentucky

 -Walmart will no longer sell guns or lock up black hair products

 -Juneteenth is now a paid holiday for some companies like Nike, Vox Media, and Twitter

 -Editor in Chief of Refinery 29 and CEO of CrossFit resigned after claims of racism and toxic company culture

 -HBO removed Gone With the Wind from their online library

 -NASCAR banned confederate flag at ALL events

 -NFL commissioner admitted they were wrong about kneeling protests

 -Dallas PD now requires intervention from a fellow officer if one is using excessive force with a civilian

Laws and regulations are changing because our community is standing up and taking action!

But, while I cheer on the inside for the change that we humans are making, I’m taken aback with my scrolls through social media. It seems like I’m in a twilight zone episode of a pre-COVID 19 world where we’re doing business as usual… My feed is full of coffee mugs, beaches, lakes full of people, and large celebrations rather than the issues we are still out to change.

I thought, “WTF is going on? People are suddenly ripping off the band-aid while the wound is still open! What happened to the change we were out to make? They didn’t just disappear! Then it hit me...this is what spiritual bypassing looks like.

Spiritual bypassing is defined as “avoiding facing unresolved emotional issues, psychological wounds, and unfinished developmental tasks”.  Essentially, only wanting to feel THE GOOD and BYPASSING the deep personal work that WILL heal ourselves and the collective.

I understand the want to go back to "normal" and the way things were. Between the pandemic, murder hornets, bush fires in Australia, and racial injustice... some normal would feel pretty great right about now! But pretending things are okay when they are not is the epitome of spiritual bypassing, avoidance and repression.

Ignoring the issues happening in the world around us is not the road to the change we need.

This is our opportunity to become aware of the issues in our communities, have uncomfortable conversations, and look inward at what we need to tend to energetically. Because when we work on ourselves, and change our energy, the energy around all of us changes.

So ask yourself, what can you do to support the change we are craving as a collective? How can we pave the way to justice? What do you need to work on internally that would exponentialize change on the planet? Because you are brilliant! You are a contribution, and your energy creates ripples in this world that affect millions.

The road to social equality may not be easy, but it is necessary. During this time it is normal to feel angry, frustrated, and sad.  And please let me give you the permission to FEEL it.  This is not the time to AVOID these feelings, because feeling the emotions is the only way to move the energy. So in turn, we can return to our highest frequency of love and light.

WE NEED TO BE THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD!

Self Mastery

Energy and Self-Mastery:  



How does your energy affect yourSELF and your ability to become masterful? 

When it comes to energies, meditation, manifestation, and just overall connecting with your higher self, many people tend to think this is some man-made, woo-woo crap. Well, I’m here to tell you it's not!

Providing guidance on how to improve and transmute your energy is my JAM! 

For over a decade, people have come to me to learn how to create a life that is fulfilled with everything they desire. From love, money, business, to living a life of luxury, your energy and what you put out into the universe is a key factor to getting in alignment and creating the life you’ve always imagined.

So, what is energy? Well my friend… I’m glad you asked! Energy is made up of three things: your thoughts, feelings, and actions.  Why should you care about this? Well,if you want to become energetically masterful or at least more SELF masterful, you need to master these three things.  And if you want to make any kind of change in your life, you not only need to become aware of your blockages but also will want to tune into what your blocks are in these three specific areas.  Once you’ve done that your next steps will be to clear and align with what it is you want to create.

Now you may be thinking…ok Tamara, what does energy have to do with self-mastery? Self-mastery is the ability to get out of your own way  and then create the thing you desire most. It takes self-awareness and a deep willingness to change and do something new and different.   But, without a doubt, becoming SELF MASTERFUL IS something that you CAN do, and it’s easier than you think.

The first step in changing your life is actually tuning into YOUR ENERGY! There is no way around it. You’ll have to think, feel, and act in new ways that allow you to be at the same vibration with the thing you desire most.  So let’s break this down.

Thoughts ARE Energy

Mindset. Mindset. Mindset. You hear people talk about it, rant about and you’ve probably gone to work to change yours.  Well the truth is it’s one part of a 3 part system to give you REAL LASTING change.  If your thoughts are out of whack, you’ll notice everything seems to go off the rails.  So, You’ve gotta get right with your mind and have full belief in what you’re doing if you want to succeed.  The places where people get hung up is when you have doubt, fear or a lack of confidence, around you pursuing what you want.  This activates a negative energy and that begins to manifest around you.  Becoming aware of your thoughts and your mindset is easy because these are typically the things you say about the thing you are wanting to create.  Ex. of limiting thoughts would be: “I hope it all turns out,”  “Well, I don’t want that to happen, but if it does I’ll deal,” “I guess I’m fine with that,” “Well, it’s not like I could really have *fill in the blank* anyway,”  Yes, these are sneaky… they sound good, but in the background, do you sense the Doubt?  

In order to be in alignment with the two other forms of energy and to make your desires a reality, you have to make sure your thoughts are clear and COMPLETELY in alignment with what you want most. You have to be willing to invoke a confidence that it’s not going any other way!

Feelings ARE Energy

Most of our FEELINGS elude us.  To be honest most of our parents and families never taught us how to talk about or even identify our feelings.  We are taught that we shouldn’t be sad, angry and upset and if you are any of those you definitely shouldn’t show it.  

I would say one of the hardest parts about being married for me was being able to tune into how I actually felt about things and then being able to share those feelings with my husband.  And it wasn’t because I didn’t want to, it was because I never really learned how to.  So notice that if you have any sort of feelings of inadequacy,  sadness, anger, or resentment around the thing you desire, you aren’t then aligned with what you want.  You’re aligned in the negative energy of not having it.  That energy will produce more feelings of inadequacy,  sadness, anger, or resentment and so on and so forth, but the biggest culprit here is being able to identify what the feeling is, again because we haven’t been trained to do that.  

The good news is you can change the energy simply by getting to the root of the feeling and giving back to who it belongs to.  By doing this you’ll change your energy field and be more aligned in what you want to create in your life.

Actions ARE Energy

I CANNOT stress this enough…YOUR ACTIONS HAVE TO BE CONSISTENT WITH THE THING THAT YOU WANT TO CREATE! IF you say that you want to be a millionaire, you can’t be making choices that are based in scarcity or lack… hoping something will just happen or change in your reality.  The only way you’re going to become a millionaire is to align in and take millionaire actions.  

If you want to live in abundance, do the things in your life as if you’re already a millionaire…do millionaire thangs! Actions aligned with what you want to manifest are the BIGGEST communicators to the universe.  So, notice what you want to tell the universe and then see if your actions are aligned with that, if they aren’t change them.  

Ex: If you do actually want to become a rich millionaire, take a simple step to look at what kind of glass a millionaire drinks out of.  And then look at what kind of glass you’re drinking out of… If it's not the same kind of glass, go get yourself a new one aligned with the kind of glass you see a millionaire drinking out of.  This is easy and simple and doesn’t cost a lot of money.  Then notice if there’s any doubt or resistance in the background and notice how you feel when you’re sipping your tea out of that glass… Viola… you just aligned your thoughts, feelings and actions into becoming a millionaire.

When you change your thoughts, feelings, and actions…you are on track to not only creating but living a life you LOVE!  The best part is, you’ll feel good in the process.  While you’re on your path, be patient with yourself my friend.  It can take time to master your energies. I’m still doing the work every single day to do better, be better and have better.  But remember that you CAN do this and that I’m here with you on this journey.

From Red to Cash Flow in 7 Days

From Red to Cash Flow in 7 Days!

Many people think that energy work is a bunch of woo-woo crap.

Does it actually work? What can you do for me that I can’t do for myself?

These are questions that I’ve gotten many times before…BUT rather than pitching you my business and selling you on why I can help you connect and tune in with your higher self and manifest the life you desire, I have something else in mind.

I want  you to try something. I want you to close your eyes, take a deep breath and allow yourself to release any negative thoughts or feelings.

And then, imagine that you are DAYS from opening your new business. You’ve invested over $20K into this process…then all of a sudden, you start hearing whispers about a nation-wide “shut down.”

No retail stores…no restaurants…no nightclubs…no YOUR business.

You’re told that the building you were supposed to be operating out of has announced that it is following the “stay-at-home” guidelines and won’t be allowing any of the tenants to do business. Your plans are officially SCREWED!  So, what do you do next?

At first glance, you’d probably think to permanently shut down your business to stop any future damage.  You can just take a loss and call it a wash—maybe you’ll hve to file for bankruptcy but you know others who’ve had to do it, so, maybe that’s what’s next.

Well friend…SPOILER ALERT! That is NOT your only option.

You remember that you have an amazing community of energetic creators to turn to. Ones that operate fully on having your back and not letting you fail. (That’s where my team and I come in.)   And just after having just a few conversations with the facilitators at MY LIFE MY DESIGN, you’re feeling more confident and more hopeful about keeping your business alive.

Together we identified the energetic blocks that were keeping you from moving forward, including all the ones about what’s happening in the economy.  We found what blocks we needed to clear and then pivoted you out of the red zone and into a place that’s giving you a positive cash flow.

This HUGE pivot resulted in a HUGE win for you and your business (ALL IN JUST A FEW WEEKS TIME). You found ways to serve your customers, you tapped into your BRILLIANCE and realized you weren’t stuck to a previous set plan and now new creations are flowing...  And, you did all this by working with the energy!

You were able to experience success because you were willing to embrace the change and stay flexible.  You’re making more money than you could have imagined and best of all… you’ve given yourself the freedom to create a new path that’s all yours!

How did you like that story? That’s one of my clients who just created over $4,500 in revenue in less then 7 days… because she worked with the energy!

While everything may be crumbling around you, there is always a way to make money and create your what’s next.  As long as you are willing to take the coaching and then take the action.  If you’re ready for results like this then let the The Ultimate FREEDOM Master Course be the next chapter of your story.

My Ultimate FREEDOM Master Course will have you focus on CREATION for 5 weeks. Whether you’re already an established business owner or are ready to take on new ventures, this course is for you. Together, we will identify YOUR blocks and find solutions to creating the business and the life you’ve always wanted, but didn’t think was possible.

So, ask yourself this: Are you ready to leverage your brilliance to bring in positive cash flow? Are you ready to BE that person in the story?

If the answer is yes, click here. Don’t STAY STUCK, it’s time to choose magic instead!

How I Used My Brilliance to Build A 6 Figure Business and How You Can Do the Same!

How I Used My Brilliance

to Build A

6-Figure Business

...and How You

Can Do the Same!

No matter your personality type, characteristics or interests, YOU CAN BE AN ENTREPRENEUR.  There are a sh*t ton of ways to create, start, and run a business. You just have to find what works for YOU. 

I’ve spent years and years cultivating my business and my energetic self-mastery program. THIS SHIT DOESN’T HAPPEN OVER NIGHT, my friend! There have been many occasions where I’ve rebranded, changed my business name, changed my strategies….and so on and so on. But you know what tactic succeeded? Finding what worked best for ME. 

There are four foundational steps that I believe can ease the process of jumpstarting a new business. It’s important to connect with your higher self and ask for guidance in your new business venture. What does this look like? It looks like asking questions.

Take some time to ask yourself these following questions: 

What is My Brilliance?

Your brilliance is the thing that people come to you for….time and time again. A good exercise for this is my  Brainstorming Your Brilliance workbook. It’s about 8 pages of detailed questions that help you dial in and tap into your brilliance.

What Problem Can You Fix in the Marketplace?

Hone your skills and expertise into a specific realm. What problems are you good at fixing? Does that skill promote any chances of people wanting to pay you for your service(s)?

What Type of Business Do You Want to Manifest?

You should be thinking about what kind of structure you desire. It's easier to create this structure now so that a flow is created and years from now, you’re not in shambles trying to figure out how to run your business. 

It's really important that you realize that anyone can be an entrepreneur but being an entrepreneur isn’t for everyone. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication, willingness to sacrifice (even if that means paying the damn fees!) and being able to pivot and leave room to be flexible.
