James joins me to share what was happening behind the scenes of our move from London to Los Angeles. We talk about the unexpected turns, how we worked through challenges, and lessons learned.

“You know, I believe that we can manifest, and I believe that our thoughts and words create our reality, but I also believe that life sometimes has a different agenda and it’s not anything that you could predict, but it’s exactly what you need. And I think that’s what we’ve been shown, and we’ve been shown more and more and more to just be in trust instead of resistant to what’s currently happening.”

-Emily Williams


  • How the back and forth from the US to the UK was taking it’s toll
  • Why we just picked a date because there would never be a “perfect time”
  • Why the opportunities to participate in more masterminds and conferences influenced our decision
  • How the move allowed James to get clear on what his lane was and how to better leverage it


  • Acknowledging that maybe there’s another opportunity or another direction or another path to get to the same result
  • Accepting that although you can manifest and make anything happen, the route to get there isn’t something you’ve always got control over
  • Realizing that predictability isn’t a requirement for happiness, productivity, and the ability to move forward
  • Recognizing in a moment of resistance that this is happening “for” you


  • This move helped sharpen our discernment skills to know whether to keep pushing or release something
  • The lesson for James was that you can design the outcome of the life that you want, but the route there can be testing
  • My lesson was a lesson in trust
  • Challenges are the lessons we need to learn and make us who we are

If you’re truly ready to create a life better than your dreams, then it’s time to talk about the concept of visualization. What is visualization? It’s when you paint a picture in your mind of what you want your life to LOOK like, but also, focus on the other senses too to make it as […]

Have you felt for some time that you’re meant for something big, something better, deeper, or more meaningful than you have right now? And yet… are you unable to see with complete clarity what that would look like because you feel so disconnected from yourself and Source? Perhaps you long for a different life… to […]

Do you remember the last time your life took a total 180?  Perhaps it was the time you moved to a brand new home (or city), welcomed a new family member, or quit your full-time job to finally pursue your true passion. Or maybe it was a more sudden, shocking, or sad type of change, […]
