How to tap into your creative intuition?
By become intuitive with my senses. I pay attention to the times where I am in the flow and the environment I am in. For example I know that piano music, ESPECIALLY Ludovico Einaudi allows my mind to wonder deep, I know that being in nature makes me feel save, and I know that the smell of citrus brings smile to my face. So when I need to be creative I recreate the environment that my creativity thrives in.

How did you come up with your business name – Rocking Vibe?
Jewelry has always been a passion of mine and looking back although the though of starting a jewelry line never entered my mind until the right moment – once it did there was no turning back. From the first time I thought to myself I should start a jewelry line it was a done deal. The name represents the main part of my jewelry (crystal and rocks) and the reason why it is the main part of the jewelry (vibrations they provide). It kind of flowed together in an instance and was the only name that I considered.

Find opportunities to love where you are. To accept the chaos, the tiredness, the setbacks. Its all part of the plan. Start a gratitude practice and a morning ritual that sets your day up for success no matter what it has in stores. I love the 5 minute gratitude journal and “TUT – the notes from the Universe” emails.
