So this post could only start one way… FUCK. YES. I’m proud of you. Tony’s events have changed my life, and I don’t say that lightly. But I do say it matter-o-factly. When I walked into Unleash the Power Within last November I had absolutely no idea what I was walking into, and not knowing was the best thing I did for myself. This post isn’t about giving you the secrets into what goes on at events, because that magic is worth experiencing for yourself. This post IS about sharing some things that helped me get the most out of my experience and perhaps quell some of the anxiety you may be harboring right now. Ready? Ok. Let’s go. Trade your expectations for appreciation.  This one is a quote from the big guy himself. Do you have expectations about what the event will be like? What skills and strategies you’ll learn? The…

I’m an advocate for getting naked. Especially with your truth. Last week in Barcelona, and for the second time in my life, I found myself on a nudist beach. It wasn’t intentional, but that’s where I ended up. I took this as a sign from the Universe to get naked more, both on the outside and on the inside. But let’s start with naked on the outside, shall we? A Barcelona Beach : Playa Mar Bella The beaches along the coast of Barcelona are as gorgeous as the people. We chose Playa Mar Bella after much deliberation and research. On the long train ride in from our AirBnb, we pictured a beautiful, soft, sandy beach with chair + umbrella rentals in front of a little beachside snack bar. Imagine our surprise as we descend the stairs to the beach to encounter is a 60-year old Spaniard with all of his…

I’m leaving again. I’m getting lost, so that I can find myself a little stronger. If you’ve been one of the lovelies for a while, then you have seen the trajectory of this last year. But, if you’re newer to the blog, let me introduce you to someone. This is me in October 2016. This is me at the start of a trip to California. It my first souladventure before souladventure was even a thing that I created. In those three weeks I transformed as I traveled up the coast. I remembered who I used to be. I reshaped my beliefs and values. But afterward, I didn’t stop. There was the England + Portugal trip for a month in January/February. I went to the Dominican Republic for 3 weeks in April, and turned around in July for a week in New Orleans and a week in NYC. Now I’m heading…

About a month ago I was sitting in the bowels of the Prudential Center Arena. In a slanted industrial room underneath the bleachers I met my fellow volunteer crew members. We were all ready to make this Tony Robbins event the best in the history of the Universe. At our first gathering as a team, we were all gifted the same blessing, “Do what you have to do to take care of yourself first.” I smiled; though my IBS is regulated, life still happens. It gave me certainty knowing that the expectation was to prioritize my wellbeing. It also made sense. How can we give our gifts to the world without vitality? Of COURSE we need to maintain our energy. But as the days went on I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I leaned in to connect with others in white squeaky fold-out chairs, and found so many of…

Have you ever felt an undeniable chemistry that quickly becomes an addiction? Have you felt the polarities too? It’s pure light inside sultry darkness. It’s inexhaustible exhaustion. It’s a kind of breath-quickening breathlessness. Some might call this passion, but that kind of electricity… it almost feels like danger. It’s the kind of high vibration that makes your body shake. This chemistry, this connection, comes from polarity, from opposition. The forces at work here are the masculine and the feminine. masculine and feminine energy Every person is, at their core, either predominantly masculine or feminine. Both energies live within us on a sliding scale and we tap into them for different purposes. However, at our core, we have one that is dominant in our natural state. The mindfuck? We might not be operating from the energy that is at our core. I have a lot of feminine energy, but I used to function with predominantly masculine…
