Traveling & Making Money Online

Leave a comment Standard

Most people tend to full-time RV when they are retired. Not us. What really helped propel us into this new life style is our passion for adventure and of course selling our dog walking business. No we are not rich, not even close. Hell, we don’t even have a savings. Yes, we have a new business, but we only make a little money from that. Some months for Souls Gone Wild are really good and others are not. That is just the truth at the moment. What allows us to keep on moving are our other jobs. 

My wife and I both teach English online. Heather teaches Chinese children through the platform called VIPKID. I teach on Cambly which allows me to meet people from all around the world. To boil it down, I basically get paid to talk and listen. It is simple and I love it. I log online and wait for incoming calls. Most people want to just talk and some want to go over specific English lessons. When I am not taking a call, I try to relax, edit our youtube videos or work on a blog. What is great about our jobs is that we are both self employed. We can create our own work schedule which works really well when we have travel or adventure days. While these jobs provide a lot of freedom and we enjoy them, they are still jobs. They keep us on the road, but eventually we would love for our youtube channel and blog to take off. 

I was really hoping for a smooth transition from our dog walking business to teaching yoga & meditation. It has not been that easy. We have had some awesome months and some difficult months. But, we are still here… in the middle of a desert – haha! We love traveling and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else than where we are now. I love traveling full-time. I love the fact that this winter we are not going to have to just deal with the cold. As a matter of fact, we will be in southern California where I greatly look forward to riding four-wheelers out in the sand dunes. Fuck yeah!

The goal is to keep traveling and teaching English, yoga and meditation. We don’t really have a “plan” and that is what is such a relief. We are really learning as we go. With that, I have to ask – what are you current goals? What are you currently learning in life?

A new adventure

Leave a comment Standard

Today we are getting prepared to leave Illinois. I am excited to be moving on, but I am sad at the same time. Heather and I didn’t really know the impact we were having on our students and friends until these last few days. I’m glad we came here to teach and I am excited to see what is next for us!

I’ve gained a lot of clarity and certainty about the decision that we have made. I truly love traveling and teaching. It just feels right. After this experience in the outskirts of Chicago, I feel more confident. I’m ready for a new adventure. I’m ready to teach more.

Something I learned while we were here is that it is really important to choose your truth and your dreams. Wake up calls will come in waves, but it is truly up to you to get on one of them and ride it to your destiny. I’ve worked many different types of jobs since I was 14, I’ve been financially secure, I’ve been homeless, I’ve experienced success, I’ve experienced failure and relationships have come and gone. What I’m finding is that my happiness has a direct connection with the decisions I make in life. When I make a decision, wether it is to take action or to not take action – am I being true to myself? If I am, I know I will find happiness. If I am not, I know I will be met with regret. For me, that is something I can not live with. I am fully aware that I have a mission that goes beyond being a husband and maybe even being a father. There is so much I want to do this life, but to keep it simple, it’s travel, teaching and music. I want to heal myself through teaching meditation. I want to help others heal and discover themselves through teaching. I want to heal myself through music. I want to entertain. I want to see the world. I was born to inspire, born to show people that it is okay to be yourself, that it is okay to dream big.

I have so much work to do, but I am excited. I’m excited because I choose my truth. I know that will lead me to where I want to be. There will be more growth periods, more growing pains, but in the end it is all worth it. I believe in taking risks. I’m sure glad we took the risk with teaching and traveling.

The company that you work for has a mission statement. I have to ask you though, what is your own personal mission statement? Why are you here? What do you want to experience this life? Why do you want to experience these dreams? What will you learn?

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.

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…

Why Meditate?

Leave a comment Standard

Tonight I will be teaching the first class of my six week meditation series. The topics for the class tonight will be learning about the aura, chakras, grounding and replenishment. To me, the first class is probably the most important class because you are learning how to get your body safe, become more present and have a way to release unwanted energy. 

The way I see things is that everything in the universe is energy. Energy is always passing through us. On occasion we resist an energy and it gets stuck. How does that affect you over time if you don’t clear it? One thing I can say is that you will have a little less space for you and your energy. The more space you have for yourself can have a big impact on how you feel.  The more of your own energy you have available to you, the more you can do and the more you can create. When your energy is in movement, things will feel like they are working just fine. When your energy is stuck or you are just operating on someone elses energy, then perhaps things might feel a bit off. 

What is the point of meditation? Well, to me, meditation is the act in which there is open dialogue between the three aspects of the soul; the feeling self, reasoning self and higher-self. What would happen if all the aspects of your soul were communicating and on the same page? How would your life start to change? Why are you here on this planet with this body? You have this amazing vehicle to experience life with. What do you truly want to experience in life? What are your dreams?

The art of meditation I series is all about setting up your meditation space. It helps you get safe and connected to your truth. There are tools that can help you get unstuck and also help you turn down the distractions so you can begin to feel, hear, see and know your energy and truth. 

I dare ask you, what if your life was a reflection of your immortal self?

Biggest Damn Growth Period

Leave a comment Standard

The beauty of living in a RV is that if plans change, which they often do, we can easily accommodate those changes. When we lived in one place, we could only focus on the area that we lived in. With our house on wheels, if we get an opportunity, we just hookup our truck to the fifth wheel and head out.

Well, our plans have changed. Originally, we were going to go to Massachusetts, however, Heather got a job as a yoga teacher in Illinois. Pretty awesome, right? I actually found a spiritual store not far from where she will be teaching where I might have the possibility of doing readings and energy work there. That’s what I did for a while when I lived in Wilmington, NC years ago.

We are still figuring things out as we go. It’s not always easy starting over, especially when you had something that was a success and let it go. I’m happy to be on the road though. I’m ready to teach more, have more adventures and share my experiences with others. 

This is the biggest damn growth period I have been in. And well, it should be. I wouldn’t want to walk through life learning and growing less. If I want to have more, then growth is my best friend. I’m green as they come now. Living in a RV and teaching clairvoyance – it is rocking my world! Where once I was comfortable, I am no longer. I am bathing in the unknown. 

My wife read some quote from online the other day and it said that the best things in life make you fat, drunk and pregnant. I actually had a few beers the other day and I was quickly reminded why I quit drinking. It took a full day for me to clear my head. I didn’t like it. Sex and food – I totally get those, haha! But, on a serious note, I think the best things in life are those that scare the shit out of us. I know what scares the shit out of me, but if I allow myself to push past the fear, I always feel so proud of myself and happy.

What makes you afraid? If you overcome the fear, what is on the other side?

Things They Don’t Tell You About Following Your Dreams

Leave a comment Standard

Since embarking on this amazing journey I have had lot of time to think of what I want and how I want it to be. 

I want to be an EPIC yoga teacher. 

I want to be an EPIC yoga teacher all over the world.

That is one of my dreams. Now the hard part is getting those things to happen. I am already an epic yoga teacher. BUT I still want to be better. I want to learn more, do more, and overall, be more of an epic yogi. I want to see that when people leave my classes they are satisfied with the experience they just had or get a message from someone online that they loved my video and that it has helped them boost their self confidence. 

But HOW do I make these dreams a reality.

Well the quick and easy answer is TIME and WORK. Seems simple right? However, there is so much more to it than that. No one tells you how it FEELS. 

I woke up today with at realization that what I want is going to take a very long time. Not just to get people to notice my epic-ness online but for my expertise to grow. The old saying “Rome wasn’t built in a day” is hitting home here. The people who find success in their dreams are the ones who never quit. That is not to say they never felt discouraged. 

It’s easy to say “follow your dreams” but what does it really mean?

If you go after your dreams you might experience these side affects

– impatience

– rejection

– success for a day, rejection the next day

-discouragement

-you screw up

-get laughed at

-get judged

-feel shameful for not being as successful as you want

-the unknown will drive you mad sometimes

-bank account may get low

This list sounds pretty scary. I have, am, and could experience some of these side affects. You might be thinking. Why in the hell would I go after my dreams if its going to be so hard and take so long???? Well that is for you to decide. 

I know that I will be a success because I refuse to throw in the towel. I refuse to let this list get the better of me. I am determined to keep going and that mindset is half the battle.

-Heather
