Three Years Married, Four Months on the Road

Leave a comment Standard

Yesterday was our three year anniversary. We have been married for three years and have known each other for almost five years. Adventure is what brought us together and after selling our dog walking business, adventure is what we returned to.

Being married and running a small dog walking business have taught me a lot about commitment. In marriage, when you have an issue, you don’t just run away from it – you work through it. You learn, grow and change. With a business, even if you wake up to a disaster – you still got to show up and make the best of it. I thought that when I would hit 30, I would be a successful artist. That was not the case haha. I have not given up on that, but something else amazing happened and that was getting married. I’ve always wanted to be with someone to share my life with, to be goofy with and to be adventurous with. I have that. I have love and I’m grateful for it.

I’m learning that marriage has a lot to do with forgiveness and acceptance. Issues will always arise in any type of relationship. How do you deal with them? Do you ignore them? Do you point them out, but don’t do anything about it? I find that being married takes me to deeper levels of acceptance and working with the energy of forgiveness. Sometimes we end up on different pages and I think it is important to always bring your marriage back into present time.

What I love most about our relationship is that we are both willing to grow together. I love that we are both adventurous and have an affinity for new experiences. I remember watching the film “Into the Wild.” It’s a sad, but very beautiful story about a young man leaving behind everything that is familiar and embracing the unknown. At the end of his journey, he realizes that happiness isn’t real unless shared. I don’t necessarily believe that because I have been alone and happy before, but I certainly understand what he was saying because I prefer sharing life with someone. I would rather go on an adventure with my wife and share that happiness.

We have been on the road for almost 4.5 months. We have had some really great experiences so far, but it has not been easy. We have a lot more growing to do. Sometimes I do have to remind myself though, we are pretty damn lucky. From the moment we sold our business and all the way until now, we have got to go on some pretty cool adventures. Yesterday we were riding four-wheelers and went knee boarding and water tubing. I love my life and can’t wait to see what is next, but the best part about is that I get to do it with my best friend, lover and partner in crime 🙂

Moving Day

Leave a comment Standard

Today is moving day. I’m always conflicted about moving because a part of me is excited and another part of me gets stressed out – haha. Actually today we are not moving very far. We will still be residing just outside of Chicago. We have already seen our new campground and t is really nice, but the only thing I am not looking froward to is how close all the RVs are to one another. At our current camp site we have a lot of space – it’s nice! One really cool thing though is that at the new RV park we will be just a few feet from a small lake. I love being near water, so that makes me happy. Being at our new campground will make things easier for us because we can walk to the yoga studio we teach at. We are also closer to grocery stores and gas stations. 

We have two months left in Illinois. After that we will continue heading west. We know Missouri is our next stop, but after that we don’t know. Most likely we will end up in the southwest to avoid the cold weather during fall / winter. Although I have seen parts of the Grand Canyon, exploring the southwest will be pretty much a new experience for me. 

Speaking of new experiences, yesterday we went to a car show yesterday which was fun. Got to meet a lot of cool people. The did a cruise around the town so I was able to get some good footage of it. Today is the second day of the show, but because we have to pack up and move, I’m not sure how much of the show we will even be able to see. I posted just a few pictures on our facebook page and will be posting the video soon from yesterday so go ahead and check out YouTube channel in the next few days.

Social Media

I have experimented in the past with taking breaks from social media. It’s nice. I’m starting to feel it is time to do that again. But, um, Andrew… you are in the process of building your brand USING social media. 

This is very true. I won’t be really stepping away from social media, but I will be stepping away from my personal accounts. I will still be actively posting on our business accounts. It’s just too much having both. I catch myself just scrolling through the various platforms and wasting a lot of time. Time is important to me. That is time I could be resting, meditating, going for a walk, reading a book…

I love social media. It makes it easier to connect. But, it is also a lot of noise. Noise I just don’t have time for now. Teaching, making videos, photography, practicing vocals, setting up events for Souls Gone Wild, focusing on my health – that is where I need more of my energy at. 

I have created a new daily routine for myself and in some ways I am having success and in other ways I’m failing miserably – haha. I’m committed though. It’s going to take me some time to breakthrough and make this work and I’m okay with that. Most of my life I have been a night owl. I remember in college I got most of my writing done late at night when most people were out partying. As I get older though I like the idea of waking up early before most people and getting a bunch of tasks accomplished. I’ve noticed that if I push things off for later in the day, I usually won’t get to it. 

I have a love /  hate relationship with technology, the internet and social media. It can be very helpful but also time wasting and addictive. So as far as my personal accounts go, I’m stepping away. Phew! I feel better already. Souls Gone Wild will still be on social media. The blogs, the pictures, videos and events will still be shared 🙂

It Never Gets Old…

Leave a comment Standard

After teaching last night, I am reminded again of how much I enjoy doing it. I enjoy teaching in general, but I am definitely passionate about guiding students in meditation. I don’t think I could only teach, but it is something I want to do throughout my life. I enjoy having numerous things happening in my life; travel, music, film, writing, etc. I love to educate and I love to entertain. 

What I love about teaching is that I am not only helping other people, but I am also learning too. It goes the same for energy healing and aura readings. What I tell people is that all healing is self healing. I consider myself a healer, but I am not necessarily healing people. I am merely giving them permission to release unwanted energy. I can’t force anyone to let go, it is up to them. Some people will come to me for a healing and have a huge mock-up to release a bunch of energy. Others can only release a small amount. There is no better or worse here. It just is. 

With aura readings, not only is the client gaining clarity and new information, but I am too as well. We are all mirrors. If you can see something in someone, then you too have that as well. This is what I love so much about what I do. Just because I no longer am a student doesn’t mean I am not healing, growing and learning. As a matter of fact, as a teacher and professional healer / clairvoyant, I am growing more than I probably was as a student. I love growing and changing. When I get to teach, I have the opportunity to watch others change before my eyes. I get to see them bring more of their energy back. It’s awesome. It is like watching a sunrise or sunset. It never gets old…

An Extraordinary Life

Leave a comment Standard

At age thirty-three, I feel as though my life is just beginning. Unlike most people, I look forward to getting older. I feel this way because I know I will continue sinking into my voice, embracing the aspects of my identity and experiencing more of my dreams.

As a clairvoyant I look at past-lives. I have looked at quite a few of mine and I have seen low lives and high lives. I’ve always had an intuition that this life was going to be very unique. In my early twenties I became very passionate about pursuing my dreams, but never sat back and thought about this life possibly being a high life.

Could I unlock all my abilities and experience all of my dreams? Could this be an extraordinary life? I never wanted to do just one thing. I’ve always been interested in singing, dancing, writing, acting, painting, travel, starting businesses, movies, modeling – the list goes on. You see the lucky few that get to do many things, that get to have a lot in life. Maybe they were born into wealth and opportunity or perhaps they worked their asses off to have what they have. I was not born into wealth, but I am driven. I know if I just keep moving forward, I will experience one dream after the next.

I think something that I will have as I reach bigger dreams is gratitude. I can only imagine that after all the pain and frustration of being stuck and then finally breaking through, I will be immensely grateful. How could I take anything for granted at that point?

I like being an entrepreneur. Despite some frustration, I do enjoy the challenge of starting a new business. I also enjoy having a home on wheels to travel full time. It is interesting because we have met numerous people since we have bought our fifth wheel RV and they have mentioned how they want to do the same at some point. We met a guy in Margate, NJ where we saw Lucy the Elephant (2nd largest elephant structure in the world) and he said, “you guys are living the dream!” It is weird to think about, but I do feel this is the beginning of MY life. It is terrifying, but I am learning to trust myself. I don’t desire or expect perfection and I’m sure there will be some setbacks, but I do believe life is just going to get and better and better. In those last few moments before I die, I want to smile thinking, holy shit – that was one crazy life.

Sure my life has seemed pretty crazy prior to this moment, but something is different now. I feel a change. I feel like I have taken ownership of my life. I feel the freedom and I don’t intend on wasting it. This life is extraordinary.

Find Your Freedom,
Andrew

Sound of Purpose

Leave a comment Standard

What you gets you inspired?
Maybe its time to retire the ball and chains
Don’t be afraid of your creative fire
Don’t be scared of the growing pains
Take in your energy and let it spread
Free your mind and clear your head
What will spark the passion in your heart?
Won’t you find it before you are dead?
Won’t you honor your cause?
Won’t you be yourself?
Won’t you play the game, you always dreamt of?
Do you hear that sound?
The phone ringing on and on
The sound of purpose is on the line
Maybe it’s time to pick up and listen to your own song…

Wild Waves

Leave a comment Standard

Wild waves crash inside of me
I’m sorry to let you go
But I have to and this is the only way I know
I am blue, I am the ocean
I love the energy and love to be in motion
I am strong, I am powerful
I am vicious, I am beautiful
I am intense, I am calm
Wild waves crash inside me like cymbals vibrating
A tune that could go on and on
Always on repeat, this is my song
I am freedom, I am speed
It is the dreamer in me, I do believe
I fall in love, when I feel like me
Wild waves.
