Hot & Sweaty

I have recently started a Hot Yoga practice. Six years ago, I started my practice in a yoga studio to meet people and get out of the house. After going to the same studio for about one year, I started working full-time and I found it difficult to incorporate my yoga practice into my daily routine. At the time, I was working with a business coach (since I wanted to get my biz started); she recommended that I get a DVD set and do yoga at home. What a fabulous idea – I thought! In the comfort in of my living room, anytime I wanted, I did yoga. Yet, one thing was missing…. The people and the connection.

After a quiet meditation in Shavasana pose, I realized that I missed the energy in the room of people with a common goal. One month ago, my friend invited me to her yoga class and I knew it was time to return to a studio. I bought the special they offered (not knowing it was Hot Yoga) and I was committed to 20 classes. When I walked into the studio, it felt like a sauna. Turning to my friend, I gasped and exclaimed: “This is Hot Yoga?!” Her reply: “Oh yeah, didn’t I tell you?”, laughing.

What I discovered in a span of 90 minutes is that I loved and hated Hot Yoga! It is definitely very different from any other yoga that I have practiced. Since I was well versed in many of the positions and quick flexible, I found the poses, relatively easy. Add to the mix, the heat, holding, sweating, cursing under your breath, the love/hate relationship, the sweat dripping in your eyes, the breathing and you’re golden! I have also found that over time, each pose got easier, my body moved in ways I didn’t realize it would and to always be gentle with yourself. Your body will tell you when it is ready to make its move into the full pose.

I challenge or shall I say, invite you to change up your routine – just a bit. Whatever it is that you do to keep your body, mind and soul healthy, challenge yourself to the next level.

Today, I am on day 8 of 20 and today, I love my Hot Yoga teacher!

What is Your Superpower?

What is your Superpower? Do you have a bit of Superman, Spiderman, Iron Man or Wolverine in you? Have you ever wondered how you can flex your intuitive muscle? Many of you have different types of superpowers yet have you ever thought of your intuition as one? All of these superheros have an intuitive muscle they use all the time. Intuition doesn’t only belong to women – so guys, flex those muscles and discover your inner Superhero Icon! In the Best Selling book: “Voodoo Shit for Men, Flex Your Intuitive Muscle”, or by working one-on-one with Michèle, you can easily discover what is yours.

Through clients’ stories, my three sons’ perspective and my husband’s transformation, I have been able to develop a language in which you, the men can understand intuition and how it can work to your advantage in your business and personal life. By using Superhero analogies and a toolbox, I have explained how your gut instincts work, how you receive your guidance through your spidey-senses, your inner Voodoo power. There are four (4) major “clairs” that I term in which your intuition communicates to you each and every day.

Some of you may doubt the information that you are gathering and I don’t doubt that you will doubt. Have no fear; I provide tips, tools and exercises that can be integrated into your daily life so you can fine-tune those intuitive muscles. The book “Voodoo Shit for Men” or a private session with Michèle, is your gym! Refer to it often, re-read certain chapters, use the journal notes to your advantage and most important try every exercise.

Please join me in a four (4) month commitment in the “Flex Gym” so you can discover your Superpower today that will influence and change your live forever! Book your session today by emailing me at and receive a free copy of the Best Selling book, “Voodoo Shit for Men, Flex Your Intuitive Muscle.”

Do It With a #Hashtag À la Jimmy & Justin

The first time I heard the word #hashtag, I responded: “What, you mean number sign, right?” “No mom, I mean #hashtag!” replied my youngest son. So off to the computer I go to search this new word. These are some of my findings: found most often in blogging, social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram; acts as a search engine of some type where what you have “#hashtaged” will return and be linked to subject. In the world of Twitter, the #hashtag will appear in trending topics. In other settings, #hashtags can create humour, a buzz around a subject or express other meanings.

So in this day of advanced technology, my gut instincts are telling me to embrace this newfound word that has been entered in the Oxford English Dictionary in June 2014 due to its popularity. Like many of you my age or older, we are not quite certain exactly how to use this #hashtag. I have decided to start playing around with it and noticing what others are #hashtagging. Check your social media feeds from Facebook or Twitter and see what your friends are doing with their #hashtags. Click on a #hashtag and follow its trail. All trails lead to something to be discovered. Have fun with #hashtags, use them to express yourself and make up new ones.

I have found this wonderfully funny video to help you decipher the message behind the #hashtag, hope you enjoy it! #VSFM, #Voodoopower, #intuition, #gutinstincts, #technologyisfun, #toomany, #notenough, #rightisthecorrectamount, #what, #LOL, #jimmyfallon, #justintimberlake

Why be Ordinary – Strive to be Extraordinary!

Be the unique man you are meant to be and start with your necktie. There are so many men out there who always wear their necktie in the same knot as everyone else. Why not be different. Show your stripes, your colours, allow your instincts to take hold and tie a unique and extraordinary necktie.

My favourite knot is the Eldredge. My oldest son, Ross tried this knot for his prom and graduation that just passed. Let me tell you, the boy got noticed! He received more compliments on his necktie than some of the girls received on their dresses. He knew he wanted a difference knot for his necktie that was visually appealing, different, and extraordinary! He took time to practice in the mirror days ahead of time while following the you-tube video (I have attached the link for you too). In the end, Ross made an impression with everyone around him.

How does this relate to your Voodoo power, your gut instincts, your spidey-senses, you ask? Simply put, everyone will notice your uniqueness in your necktie after that you can dazzle him or her with your Voodoo power. Dig into your toolbox of clairs and use the one best suited for the occasion. Will it be your clairvoyance tool, in being to see a bit of what this person is like and how they will fit into your life – personal or business? Will it be your clairaudience tool, are you able to hear a secret or hidden message underlining in the conversation that you are having that will reveal an answer to a burning question you have had? Will it be your clairsentience tool, when you shake hands with this person, what are you feeling from their energy being projected in the handshake? Can you trust them? Will they be an ally or foe? Will it be your claircognizance tool in which you just know what you know about the situation at hand – good or not so great?

Perhaps a few of your tools will be used at once. Either way, pay attention to the details, act upon the information you receive and relish in the abundance of a new friendship, new business deal, new romantic partner, and etcetera.

Teach Them Well

Teach Them Well


September brings for us parents mixed feelings as we send our children to school. As for myself, there are many new feelings this September. My youngest son is off to high school and my oldest son is attending university.

How does this relate to gut instincts, Voodoo power and intuition? Very easily…. I could only hope that all the prep work that I did as their highly intuitive mother will prepare them well enough to follow and continue to flex their own intuitive muscles.

In high school, no doubt that my youngest son will encounter situations that he did not in the elementary years. In university, in a different town, across an ocean, on an island my oldest son will definitely be faced with trusting his gut even more now that he is on his own for the very first time in his life! He is pursuing his dream career by embarking on post-secondary courses that will lead him to fulfilling that dream. My middle son will continue on with his journey as he moves up a year in high school and will soon be faced with making career decisions and choices. Which courses shall he take this year that will guide him in his career path? Does he even know which path that will be yet? Unlike his two brothers, he has not quite figured it out and that is just fine. I know that his inner voice will speak clearly to him and will show him his destined path when the time is right.

Despite my anxiety, I know that all three of my boys are well equipped “intuitively” to make the necessary choices. Their Voodoo Shit has not failed them thus far, why would it now? It will only seem to fail them, if they chose to not listen, pay attention or act upon their intuition. So Voodoo On Boys and to you pass along your Voodoo knowledge to your children too!
