Do you know when my life really "took off"? When I stopped listening to the bullsh!t in my head!

We came in knowing how to play the Game of Life! Then, through no fault of our own – were taught a different set of “rules” by people who had also been taught a different set of “rules” while they were growing up. That story went back generations. I bet it goes back generations for you too.

That misguided training (aka bullsh!t) had me playing small, unsure of myself, and constantly self-sabotaging situations, and opportunities – because I had not learned to trust myself. I had learned I wasn’t worthy or loveable. I  learned that I had no control over how my life turned out. I was at the whim of something entirely outside of myself.

Those are NOT the Rules of Life. That was just my Monkey-Mind!

Something inside me said that conclusion was full of lies, so I followed that guidance to the truth of how the Game of Life is to be played.

I recognized my old story (“rules”) and began to write a new one – and everything changed. Now I want to help you change that too, so I developed the MTK Method that will help you separate your truth from the lies - setting you back on course to live the life you came to live.

C'mon give yourself a Kickstart - and learn how to shut down the voices in your Monkey-Mind.

My name is Layne Smith-Brown and I've been an author, coach, and course creator for a long time now - and I've come to understand one simple truth...

It is not until we truly learn to fall madly, deeply, and completely in love with ourselves that our lives finally open up to bring us all that we desire, unveil why we're here (on the planet) and what we've come to offer (our unique offering).

We came in with all that self-love and personal knowledge and then a whole pile of other people's ideas, behaviors, agendas, biases, and priorities distracted us from that truth.

The work we're doing here at Weird Hummingbirds is to guide you back to YOUR TRUTH.

I call all that other "stuff" power leaks and they drain us of our authentic power (self-love and deserve-ability).

How long are you going to make excuses for NOT doing this work? Excuses are your monkey-minds way of keeping you small.

Listen or don't listen. Your choice.

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!

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.

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.

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! 🤩✨🌟

Do you know why this book resonated with so many women?

It’s ‘cuz our personal stories are universal – which means we can learn from each other.
