Ksenia Avdulova on Manifesting, Divine Timing, and Stepping Into Your Truth

episode 52


Today’s guest is Ksenia Avdulova, the creator of the internationally renowned and celebrated brand and movement, Breakfast Criminals and ALSO more recently, the creator of crystal criminals and the host of the Woke & Wired podcast.

Ksenia is a really interesting person. I find her story fascinating. She mentions in the episode that she’s been incarnated into this current life to motivate and inspire others and that truly is her gift.

A few things about this episode –

You’ll hear the sound of crows in the background. There are a lot of crows that live in our neighbourhood. I actually called the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre here one time about them because I found one with an injured wing and the woman I spoke to told me that crows travel together in families and set up a home in one location that really does become their home…they live there for years and years and years. I really respect the crows in our neighbourhood and I love them a lot! And it’s interesting that they came into this episode because honestly, they’re crowing outside ALL the time and I record these episodes with my windows open all the time…but for some reason they haven’t come through before. Ksenia suggested that I look into what they mean as spirit animals and so I did.

I learned that crows are a TOTEM animal, which means they are a spiritual being, a sacred object or a symbol a tribe, clan, family or individual. Some Native American tribe's tradition provides that each person is connected with nine different animals that will accompany him or her through life, acting as guides.

This caught my attention right away because totem animals have been coming into my consciousness a lot lately. My Masters, Teachers and Loved Ones in my Akashic Records are using them as symbols for me, instructing me to learn about certain animals to make sense of things happening in my life. I had never heard of the concept of ‘totem animal’ aside from animals on ‘totem poles’ but all of this is now fascinating to me and I’m diving deep into learning more about it.

Anyways, a crow used to have a bad reputation, symbolizing bad luck and death but our new ear has brought upon new meanings for this gorgeous and very special bird. The crow now symbolizes a new phase in someone’s life. If you find yourself seeing crows all the time, take some time to discover yourself on a deeper level because you may be going through a period of personal transformation and growth. A crow can also mean intelligence, flexibility and destiny.

So, onto Ksenia. She’s a New York-based entrepreneur, an embodiment of the new paradigm and has created the award-nominated media platform Breakfast Criminals with over 100K+ followers through the intuitive guidance she received in meditations. From journeying to the mountaintops of India to studying a variety of energetic practices like QiGong and Reiki, she understands the power that opens up when you combine expanding your consciousness, digital technology, and unstoppable action.

In our conversation, we discuss her personal story of growth and discovery, how she has manifested the abundant life she lives now, honouring where you come from, improving and getting better in your skills and practice, stepping into something you’re meant to be doing in this world and a really interesting topic that we haven’t covered on the show yet, balancing spirituality and technology. She also shares her tips on HOW to build a large online following and how she monetized her brand.

I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I enjoyed having it!


“I believe that I’m going to be guided to where I need to be."

+ what a psychic told me in 2012

episode 46


I am so, so grateful that you’re joining me today because oh my goodness, this episode is truly special. I take extra pride in my editorial calendar and choose each guest for the show very, very carefully and therefore I love every episode but this one surprised me in the best way possible.

I knew Millana Snow was inspiring, magical, mystical, REAL, true, passionate and a woman I needed to have on Manifest This! but after basking in her radiance for just over an hour while we recorded this episode over Skype (we weren’t even in personal and I picked up on her magical) she blew me away.

Today Millana has integrated these worlds by leading workshops, meditations and talks at NYU, Syracuse, Summit LA17, Soho House, Lululemon, Alexander Wang and more.

In our conversation we talk about her childhood, how she found spirituality and learned about her gifts, what happened after she discovered the Law of Attraction, how she manifested her win on Project Runway and every job she’s had since and we also go quite deep on how to accept yourself, embrace your shadows, and how to allow yourself to just FEEL.

Ellen Fisher on Unschooling and Following Your Heart

episode 45

ellen fisher.jpg

I want to take a moment to deeply thank you for all of your feedback and love on my special birthday episode that I shared last week – 33 Things that I’ve Learned in 33 Years – so many of you told me that my words brought you to tears and that means the world to me.
I was talking to one of my close girlfriends Alexandra Dawson, former podcast guest (episode 10) about how I wished I had included one more lesson and she suggested that I share it today as a good luck lesson “you always need an extra for good luck!” she said.

So here it is…

Appreciate your body. Love your body. LIVE in your body. Respect your body.

This is one that I’m always working with. I constantly find myself looking back at photos of myself thinking “I looked so good then…” or “wow..I was so fit then..” when in reality, I’m still wearing the same clothes, they fit the same…the shape of my body may have changed a little here and there but for the most part, I look the same now as I did in the photographs that I always look back on. It’s my mind that sees someone different in the mirror. And here’s the thing – my body made a baby, birthed a baby medication free and has breastfed her now for almost 21 months. My body healed itself naturally after being burnt in a house-fire. My body has overcome an eating disorder. The list goes on and I’m sure you have similar stories about what your amazing body has done for you. Because our bodies work SO HARD every single day for us so something that I’m constantly working on, my “lesson for good luck” is to constantly love and accept the ebbs and flows of my body as it evolves with time and life.

Let’s talk about today’s guest – Ellen Fisher.
Ellen is such an effortless force. I started watching her YouTube videos years ago and fell in love with her vibrant, healthy, natural lifestyle in Maui Hawaii. Sharing now with an audience of half a million people, Ellen’s become a world-wide resource and role model for veganism, gentle parenting, home birthing and breastfeeding. In our chat we talk about how she and her husband Andrew manifested their move from California to Hawaii, why they did it and how they made it happen, we talk about unschooling and Ellen’s thoughts on the traditional school system, we talk about raising vegan children and what to do if you have a picky eater and we also talk about how social media has helped Ellen build up her confidence and improve her relationship with herself.


"Living is learning.”


In This Episode We Discuss...

+ why Ellen & her family decided to move to Hawaii from California and how they made it happen
+ tips Ellen has for others who want to move somewhere else
+ how Ellen has achieved financial freedom for her and her family
+ Ellen’s social media career

+ our feelings around education
+ unschooling and allowing children to be ‘free thinkers’
+ raising children vegan

Demetra Penner on Connecting to Earth Mother and Unblocking Financial Abundance

episode 40


Today I’m chatting with Demetra Penner, creator of all potions for Sweet Spirit Apothecary, plant medicine expert, musician, mystical spiritual goddess and I love this conversation so, so much. Her words were and are like medicine to me.

To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t going to air this episode until June, we recorded it less than a week ago. When I made the decision to go down to one episode per week, I sat with the decision for a few days before sharing it with you and during that time I did some inner work. I know that when I am out of alignment my masculine energy becomes more prominent and it was this conversation with Demetra that helped me really realized that. It felt like she was sent straight from Spirit to me in the very right moment. So I had to air it right away because the words she shares today spoke straight to my heart, like medicine for my soul.

She shares about her life in her little cabin in the forest on the lake and how she and her finance found themselves living surrounded by nature, she talks about her life as a Spiritual woman and about how she’s been different from the moment she was born, she talks about plant medicine and how plants are aligned with our chakras, she talks about being so immersed in the Feminine as an eternal creator and at the end we talk about money – blocks around money, the energy exchange of money and how we both view money so differently now than we used to.

And she’s also doing a giveaway!

Demetra is so kind to share a $100 Sweet Spirit Apothecary giftcard to one lucky listener.
