Dear Sensitive Soul,


This year’s been a bit heart breaking and soul crushing, hasn’t it?


(and then we’ll get to the good stuff, I promise!)

Because I know you desperately want to hear the truth.

Because I know you deeply want to grow.

Because I know you’re incredibly strong and can take it.


Here goes…

If 2020 has been a turbulent emotional roller coaster for you as life-as-we-know-it crumbled around you, it’s because you didn’t take your SELF along for the ride.



Well, I’m glad you asked!

Allow me to explain…

Imagine you had a child you once adored. You took her everywhere you went and shared everything together, from your deepest darkest secrets to your boldest brightest dreams. You two were deeply bonded and there was absolutely nothing that could shake your inherent love and trust in each other. When challenging things happened, you clung on tighter to each other and moved through it together, hand in hand.

But then, as the years went by, you became more distant while life relentlessly delivered one painful blow, crushed hope and broken dream after another. You started focusing on other things outside of your relationship for fulfillment, like careers and money and lovers. You sought validation, acceptance and love outside of her and started confiding in and trusting others, deeming them more important. She was no longer enough for you and you stopped sharing your fears and dreams and hurts and victories with her. In essence, you left her behind as you went to live your life. 

You didn’t do it consciously though, you simply became inundated with all that life demanded from you, constantly pulling you in one direction after another. It was exhausting, and you barely had any energy left for her, let alone yourself. When you weren’t fighting and struggling to merely survive, you were sleepwalking in a semi-awake but unconscious slumber. 


And then 2020 comes along…

(cue the ominous music)


As the world fell apart and everyone you knew started falling with it, so too did your inner world. You started reacting to the collective fear, anger, divisiveness and energetic vibration of a world gone mad. You began to lose faith in humanity, your friends, family, and ultimately, yourself. You discovered that those you love deeply, or thought you knew, had values different than your own, and you struggled desperately to keep loving them despite their beliefs… or you let them go, clinging on to indignation to numb your grief.

From deadly viruses to global lockdowns, and civil protests to political unrest, the world turned ugly and life became a series of emotional waves crashing into you one right after another, relentlessly, nonstop and without mercy.

You tried your hardest to keep it together, to remain strong and loving and spiritual, but you felt like you were swimming against a raging current, battling monstrous waves and flailing desperately just to keep your head above water. The more you struggled, the heavier you felt, with the weight of the world’s pain bearing down upon you.

But it wasn’t just the outer world, it was also your own self-defeating thoughts and emotions surfacing, your limiting beliefs and negative self-talk.

It was all the old, toxic unresolved and stagnant energy that you’ve been carrying around for years, the deadweight you picked up along the way when you decided unconsciously to do life alone.

It was the aching emptiness that gnawed on you when you caught a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and quickly looked away in disgust.

And it was the loneliness and guilt that bore a hole in your heart because you’d left your Self behind long ago.

Somehow 2020 brought all this to the surface, like a convergence of truth and lies, a meeting point to reconcile.

2020 forced you to face your past, accept your present and move forward toward a gravely uncertain future.

Whether you did it with or without grace is irrelevant.

What matters is how you move forward from this point on.

Do you go alone or do you bring your SELF with you?

If any of this resonates with you, I’ve got great news for you!

Hi, I’m Tree Franklyn and that’s Stick Girl.

Like you, we’re empathic, sensitive and feel emotions deeply.

For many of us sensitive souls, our lives have been riddled with struggle, betrayal, loss and heartbreak. Our souls have been crushed. We feel broken, weak, flawed. We care too much, feel too much, love too much. We listen to others, comfort their hurts and tirelessly serve their needs. Yet, when it comes to turning that love on ourselves, we feel guilty. Undeserving. Selfish. This year has brought much of that pain to the surface, revealing parts of us that we’ve ignored for too long.

The good news is that it’s not your fault. How you’ve reacted to this year’s events is merely the Universe’s loving mirror reflecting back to you parts of yourself that need compassion, attention and reconciliation. You just need to become reacquainted with your SELF again.

You might be thinking, “who’s this crazy doodle lady with the strange name and why does she think she knows me?”

Great question!

I’m a bestselling author, faculty member at The Shift Network and founder of the Empathic Awakening Academy.

I’ve been featured in Huffington Post, Elephant Journal, Mike Dooley’s TUT, Positive Thinking magazine, Inspired Coach magazine, MindBodyGreen, Tiny Buddha, Entrepreneur on Fire and more. I’ve also been featured as a Quiet Revolutionary in Susan Cain’s Quiet Revolution.

Along with my popular whimsical muse, Stick Girl, I teach soul-centered empathic women how to transcend their ordinary, everyday lives so they can reconnect with who they truly are and create a life of deep meaning and purpose.

But don’t take my word for it, here’s what others, just like you, have said about the results of my work and more specifically, my deep dive intensive that I’ll tell you about in just a moment…

If you’d like to join these and other sensitive souls in having your own breakthroughs, emotional releases and tender, compassionate moments with yourself, I’d like to introduce you to…



Learn a powerful healing process to release old painful wounds and toxic emotional energy so you can feel lighter, freer and more confident… in 7 days.

The 7 Day Deep Dive to Activate Self-Love is an intensive, 7 day series of action steps that build upon each other every day to help you fall in love with yourself, from a genuine non-egoic place of soul. It gets you back in touch with yourself, after having been apart for so long. Each daily session takes only 10-20 minutes a day. We move quickly, powerfully and boldly so you don’t waste any more time without absolute love, compassion and trust in your self.

If we want things to change, we must first learn to create the change inside ourselves, to be kinder, gentler and more loving toward ourselves so that the world reflects back to us only the love we feel inside. The problem is that even though we all KNOW this, we don’t know how to achieve it. This Deep Dive will not only show you how but will also help you discover it for yourself and literally FEEL the shift and transformation taking place inside you.

Did anyone else sob through today’s exercise? Knowing that there are others going through their own journeys – and doing the same exact steps – every morning while I’m going through mine helps me feel “not so alone” even though I am alone in my house. Today, you guys really helped me through the painful confrontation with myself. I kept reminding myself that I’m not alone in this and I couldn’t wait to log into the group and share with you what happened and also see what everyone else experienced with the exercise. My pained sobbing turned into a total reconciliation with myself for all the ways I’ve been cruel and harsh to me. I can’t believe how incredibly mean I’ve been to myself. But it stops today. I’ve faced it, forgiven myself and now I feel lighter and more loving toward me – my own best friend. What a difference a day makes!!



The purpose of this deep dive is to help you:

  • Get clear on what it means to love yourself
  • Discover why it’s been so difficult
  • Replace negative self-talk
  • Stop holding yourself back from your dreams
  • Forgive yourself
  • Treat yourself with kindness
  • Teach others how to treat you
  • Have real-life, practical and actionable steps to move toward loving yourself
  • Feel deep, appreciative love for yourself


Does this sound like you:

  • I give to the point of having no energy left for myself
  • I’m always the one listening to other people but when I need help, it’s hard to find
  • Every moment feels as though it’s lived for someone else 
  • I feel responsible for relieving other people’s burdens
  • When someone compliments me, I try to deflect it by making a dismissive remark, like “this shirt? Oh, it’s so old.”
  • I never feel like I do enough, no matter how much I do
  • I’m always worried about disappointing others
  • I feel guilty when I say “no”
  • I feel selfish when I set boundaries

In a nutshell, you give to everyone else except you. That’s why.


Ever wonder “when did life get so busy?” You’re running around frazzled and stressed almost every day with so much to do… all important things, too, like taking care of everyone else. You don’t have time. We get it.

  • But the moment you don’t have time for yourself is the exact moment you need it most.
  • This deep dive is for those truly committed to themselves and will be a total emotional cleansing so you can go into tomorrow lighter, freer, fiercer and bolder.
  • And guess what? It only takes 10-20 minutes a day for 7 days. Are you worth 20 minutes a day? How about 10?


Have you been trying to love yourself for years but can’t quite “get it”?

  • That’s partly because you’ve been trying to go it alone.
  • When 2 or more are gathered with a singular intention, the power of the group’s purpose supersedes any one person’s block.
  • If you feel that you don’t have it within you to fully love yourself or you simply need support, joining this deep dive will leverage the power of the group’s amplified love and take advantage of the collective community’s energy toward positive, loving change.
  • We’re all in this life (and deep dive) together, let’s help each other through it.

All it takes is 10-20 minutes a day for 7 days


You’ll immediately fall deeply in love with yourself and live happily ever after.

Just kidding!

We SO wish that were true!

Though anything’s possible, we can’t promise that. But here’s what we can promise…


First, you’ll receive a WELCOME email with details on how to participate, log in and access the materials.

That’s the easy part.

Here’s the not-so-easy part.

Once you start the deep dive, you MUST do the action steps outlined every day. It should take no more than 20 minutes per day total to watch the video lesson for that day and do the action step. 

Some action steps will be hard. Very, very hard.

Most will go deep. Very, very deep.

You may not want to do a few of them.

You may want to skip them.

But don’t. Just don’t.

Give yourself the gift of commitment and follow-through.

If you do each step as outlined, you will:

  • Feel a shift in energy toward yourself (and possibly someone else in your life).
  • Release a heavy load of emotional baggage and negative sludge.
  • Feel an outpouring or a tender moment of love toward yourself.

If you don’t do the action steps, no one will hunt you down and force you. But if you don’t hold yourself accountable, no one else will either. We still love you no matter what and you are free to continue on with your life as you have been. But if you’re carrying as much baggage as Stick Girl here, and you don’t find an alternative way to LET IT GO (whether it’s this deep dive or another method), you may carry it into tomorrow and the next day and the next day and possibly the rest of your life.

Take your first step of self-love and let go of this deadweight. You’ve been carrying it around for far too long. 

Aren’t you exhausted? It’s time to let it go.



That’s okay! You can still get the course while it’s available and then start when you’re ready. You’ll have lifetime access to it.  


The series lasts only 7 days and the daily actions don’t take much time. Each day will take between 10-20 minutes to not only listen to Tree explain the daily action, but also to do the action. You’ll be done every day in 20 minutes tops. We’ve kept these lessons short but impactful because we know a lot of people have young children and family members at home quite a bit these days.


Great question! But we’re not telling.

If we told you, you’ll get scared and your mind will create stories about how you can’t do it, don’t want to do it, it’s not for you, blah blah blah. But we know those are all excuses to get out of confronting yourself. So let’s just say that they won’t require any hard physical labor, you won’t need to go outside of your home to do any of them, and you don’t need to buy anything that you don’t already have lying around your house. The action steps require deep internal reflection and a few of them require a physical action to go along with the internal reflection (ie: writing down your insights, speaking words out loud and, well, we can’t tell you the rest). You’ll just have to sign up to find out! 


Since we introduced this deep dive in 2016 (it was called a challenge back then), we have only had one request for a refund, and that was after the second day, which has a really hard action step for many. Some people experience massive breakthroughs with this while others gain a “quieter mind” or “more loving and nurturing relationship” with themselves. No matter what the range of healing, everyone who has completed the tasks for the entire 7 days has gained something well beyond the small price of the program. But, if for any reason, you decide that this isn’t for you, we offer a 30 day full money back guarantee. If you’re not satisfied for any reason, we’ll refund your money back 100%.


We understand that not everyone does Facebook for various reasons. The Facebook group is there for the community aspect, to share insights with your fellow deep divers and give and receive support from others but it’s not a requirement to join. 

Enough stalling, are you ready?




You’ll get lifetime, downloadable access to all the value-packed videos including downloadable slides and worksheets. This allows you to watch and listen on your schedule as well as scribble, take notes & highlight your favorite parts on paper.

Learn and take massive action by committing to the full 7 days and doing the work. If you aren’t satisfied, we’ll refund your money no questions asked.
