When it’s finally time to UNLEASH THE QUEEN!

Layne Smith Brown Intro Video about When it’s finally time to UNLEASH THE QUEEN!

My name is Layne Smith-Brown and I guide women to hear their own voice, follow their own heart, find their own soul-inspiring purpose and step into the life they came to live.

In Unleashing the Queen, you will come to understand that everything up until now was exactly what you require to step into your Authentic Power!

Unleashing the Queen is a path to uncovering who you’ve come to be and what you’ve come to do – but first, we address what’s in the way.

This will not be for you if you’re a dabbler – looking for an easy fix that doesn’t stick and doesn’t last.

But if you’re ready to make a commitment to learning the tools that will set you up for the life you came to live – then click the link below.

LOVE THIS BOOK! Weird Hummingbird gave me the knowledge that I needed to reveal the journey into my own self-awareness and self-care. I had no idea that I was struggling to break through some of my own negative habits and realizing that I needed to love myself deeply in order to do so! This book provided me the tools and reflections to propel me forward towards my journey into the inner work, and through this, I am continually blossoming into the person I am meant to be!! Thank you Layne for all your wise words!

I can’t say enough about this book! It truly changed the way I look at the world and myself. I couldn’t put it down; it was like Layne knew exactly what I needed to hear and how to help me. I found myself finally listening- her words awaken a passion in you to lead a life that is more authentic, rooted in self love and powerful. I read it twice and I continue to read it often. I leave it on my bedside table, and I will often open the book randomly to read the exact message I needed. Layne is an angel-her truth and her life story was inspiring to read. She helped me see myself in a way I never thought to look. I am forever thankful that this book and this beautiful badass woman came into my life. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

This book deserves 5 stars all the way! It is excellent and one I thoroughly enjoyed! The author shares page after page of simple, yet super-inspiring ideas for changing the way you think and look at life. I also loved the way she shared her personal ups and downs throughout, and she does so with honesty and integrity. She helps you to strip away the layers of lies and untruths that have held you back from living the life you want and being the person, you were born to be. A definite must-read for anyone interested in personal development... this one works!

~ Maria McMahon

Layne's book is a great kept me engaged the entire time, had some good laughs too as I related to many of Layne's personal stories. Came away with some great tools. I now have some practical and easy to remember steps that will help me when facing some of life's challenges. To Layne, thank you for your gift and for sharing so much of your personal journey. Can't wait for the next book!!!!! Buying a few copies for my friends as I know many that would benefit.

If you’re really serious about getting down to work and shovelling out the negative in your life (and let’s not kid ourselves, we all have it), Layne Smith-Brown’s book, Weird Hummingbirds (I love the name!) is the one to put on your reading list – or should I say ‘to do’ list. Layne opens up about a lot of pain in her life and her journey of healing and truth. I could identify with many of her stories – a few brought a tear to my eye. Some broke my heart, especially the chapter called The Bedroom. She smartly ends every chapter with a series of questions to get you ‘doing’ – questions to peel back and expose your own negative self-talk and then help you heal from the lies you’ve been living so your real truth can emerge and shine. It’s a down-to-earth, funny yet raw memoir but also a book filled with nuggets to help purge. Be prepared....the questions can take you deep. To get the full experience and heal, you need to do the work.

This is a beautiful and honest book. I felt Layne was meeting me at the front door of her life with open arms, welcoming me into every room as we toured her house. Following insights gleaned from her own experiences that she so openly shares can only bring each of us to a higher place as we understand who we are, what made us that way and more excitingly, who we can become when we understand how our growing years have shaped us. In reading through the book, I felt Layne's willingness to lay herself out to the readers, so they could truly understand the action and consequence of thought and experience that dictate who we become.

I think this author has a cheerful, flowing style that makes her book an easy read, yet an incredibly informational journey at the same time. I will read it again and recommend it to friends.

Are you interested in pitching yourself forward to bigger and better things? Change takes but an instant. It is resistance to change that takes a lifetime" I absolutely love this book. I have highlighted so many passages! The writer has a fresh way of saying things which really gets your attention. Her own inspirational story is told with transparency and compassion, but with the lightness of fluttering hummingbird wings! Throughout the book you can feel the love she is sharing with the reader. Through great examples and excellent questions, she gives you "powerful tools to begin making choices instead of giving in to the mood." This book is comparable to books by Karen Casey and Melody Beattie - the highest praise I can possibly give a book, and I look forward to more from this writer.

Thirty years ago, I started a journey to connect with my Divine Intuition. I found the work invaluable in helping me through the trials of being a mother and finding a new career. Over the years I lost sight of the ongoing work required to maintain that connection. Weird Hummingbirds came into my life at a perfect time, when I was ready to start the journey again. Weird Hummingbirds is a short, insightful and motivational book that shows reader how to identify the lies that feed the ego and discover the truths that help you lead a full, spectacular life. Layne Smith-Browns easy conversational style and personal stories make this an enjoyable read throughout.

This book has been a gift from the Universe! Sometimes life just keeps throwing punches, but Weird Hummingbirds helps redirect the wearied mind back to the innate wisdom within us. The analogies resonate, the stories grip your heart and the questions guide you into bite-sized mouthfuls of introspection that are easy to digest. I am excited to embrace the wisdom Layne Smith-Brown has poured into this book and “excavate the truth” within.

You want more. Your life isn’t what you want it to be. You know what you should be doing to get the results you want, you just don’t do them. We all want to reach our full potential, to be the person we know we’re meant to be, but sometimes we tell ourselves stories and those stories sabotage and get in the way of becoming that person. “Weird Hummingbirds” takes you on a journey of self-discovery. Find out what stories are holding you back and step into the beautiful person you want to become.

Addendum: I still use these three guidelines from the book when life gets to be overwhelming:

1. Pay attention to detail

2. Do your work lovingly

3. Don’t worry about the outcome

These statements keep me moving forward at times when self-doubt leaves me paralyzed. A great book!

~ Heather Hobbs

Weird Hummingbirds is a relevant reminder of the gentle ways we can release the grip that stale and stagnant thoughts can keep us stuck and leading a much less spectacular way of being!! This is a book I shared with my 14-year-old daughter, so she can keep her self worth strong and live her gifts to liberate herself and the people around her to do the very same! Deeply grateful for such a charming yet powerful tool for anyone to feel hope and freedom! 🤩✨🌟

Pretty Great Reviews Huh?

It’s ‘cuz our personal stories are universal – which means we can learn from each other. My journey to plugging my power leaks can help you on your journey to plug yours. Then, “all of a sudden” – there you are – standing fully in all your glory and authentic power. How good would that feel?
