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?

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.

Three days of Yoga

Leave a comment Standard

The past few days have been pretty amazing. I got to meet a lot of cool people at three different yoga events. We went to Stone Harbor, Pitman and Mullica Hill, NJ.

Heathers mentor, Shannon, was doing a teacher training in Stone Harbor and Heather got to participate and say goodbye to some of her friends. To my surprise, Shannon wanted an aura reading. So, I got my space in the truck and went into the studio. I thought all of Shannons students would leave, but I quickly realized everyone was very curious and wanted to watch. All my sessions are usually private, so this was very different for me. Part of me felt like I was giving a performance. After finishing up the reading, I opened my eyes and her students were clapping and one girls jaw was halfway down. I had a lot of fun reading Shannon and meeting her students. 

The next day we went to the Solstice Soul Fest in Pitman, NJ. That is the first outdoor yoga event that I’ve been to. I really enjoyed being apart of a large group. It’s interesting because most people I meet, they don’t like being in large crowds. Don’t get me wrong, I love being alone and having time to create, but I really do enjoy being apart of big group. I think that is why I like big cities. There is something comforting to me knowing that a lot of people are around. 

After the Solstice Soul Fest, we taught our first workshop at Blissful Yoga in Mullica Hill, NJ. It was a last minute event, so we didn’t have many show up, but we still really enjoyed it. I opened with a meditation on grounding and Heather followed with a gentle warrior flow. After that I closed with a mediation on replenishing with your unique energy. 

Lately, I have been doing a lot of teaching and readings over the phone, so it was nice to be able to teach in person. I like being able to do both and that is why this works so well with traveling full-time. We actually leave in a few days and will be driving to the outskirts of Chicago. I feel that things are really going to pick up. I already know I will be doing more readings and more teaching and I can’t wait!

Opportunity

Leave a comment Standard

Where there was resistance, struggle and limitation, I now see opportunity – I see doors opening. 

I don’t like the word no. I don’t like the phrase, “you can’t.” They don’t sit well with me, because I know if I keep going, if I keep blasting the drum like the energizer bunny, I will eventually find my way. 

When you walk a cleared path, a path that others have walked down, there is clarity and ease. When you walk down a path not many have gone or create your own path, there is a great deal of uncertainty. You are walking blind with your faith like fire burning upon your head. The various levels of your intuition are the tools in your tool belt you pull from. Trust becomes like air or food – a necessity for your survival. 

I like surprise, spontaneity, growth, change and transformation. They are the energies that push the boredom out of my body and provide permission for me to be present. 

Living in a RV to travel full time is one hell of a growth period. Towing, leveling, fixing leaks, building an audience, finding students, finding campgrounds, editing, and so on…

I love it, but it has been an adjustment. I wouldn’t have it any other way now though. Being able to see new places and have new experiences is entirely worth it. I love the challenge of building a new brand from nothing. The energy I bring to this brand is limitless. This is everything I’ve wanted to create. To be able to travel with my wife and pets, to teach and to express myself creatively. I don’t care if its through writing, music, comedy, film or all of the above. Our youtube channel and blog have given me a way to put myself out there. I’m just going to keep going until all the doors are open.

Teaching Clairvoyance

Leave a comment Standard

I can feel it. It’s familiar – the accelerated growth. I experienced it while going through all my trainings in Chicago and I feel again now. I’m teaching clairvoyance again and it feels great. Sure, the growing pains have already begun, but overall it’s a very exciting time. I love teaching. I like how it impacts me and how it impacts my students. I have a very high affinity for growth and that is exactly the theme these days.

Clairvoyance is the ability to see clearly. It’s your ability to see yourself, the world and others with clarity and even neutrality. Clairvoyance is all about stepping out of judgment and seeing things for as they are, not as they should be. Getting a reading from a clairvoyant can be validating because the goal for them is to find your energy in the various aspects of your life. It can be such a great feeling when someone acknowledges aspects of your identity or even various dreams you have. There may be times you are just going through a rough time and if you were to get a reading, a clairvoyant may say, “hey, I see you are going through this or I see you handling this energy,” but they don’t make the entire reading about what is wrong with you, the clairvoyant goes on and looks behind all of that and finds that persons unique energy. They find the light amongst the darkness. That is how a reading can be healing. Comedians are great at this. They are honest and they are real, but they always find the light in the dark. They find the amusement.

Sometimes saying hello to someone, without judging them can be very healing. To have someone recognize what makes you unique and not scrutinize it, can be very validating. With clairvoyance, you can see everything. Sometimes the energy is so thick you just have to work through it. Sometimes it is just a matter of saying hello the dark, moving it aside and finding the light that was always there.

Lyme Disease

Leave a comment Standard

It’s an oh shit moment when you see the bullseye mark on your skin. Part of you hopes its just a rash, but another part of you knows what it is. When you visit the doctor they automatically give you antibiotics. Apparently the sooner you get medicine in your system the better. A week after I was in the woods shooting a video, I noticed the bullseye and started to feel sick. Once that happened I setup an appointment and got it checked out, however, they made me wait a few weeks to get blood work done, but when I finally got the results, I wasn’t surprised. 

Even after the taking antibiotics for three weeks, I still noticed occasional stiff necks / headaches. I was irritated by it because I thought I was in the clear of experiencing symptoms due to seeing a doctor really soon. I ended up going back to the doctor to see what was going on. They did more blood work and it didn’t show that I was bite a second time. The doctor didn’t seem to think the symptoms were from the lyme disease, so I thought maybe I should go to the chiropractor to get adjusted. I have two problem areas along my spine that always seem to go out that need adjusted, but it’s nothing major. 

Around the same time of getting adjusted I decided to do a seven day cleanse. It kicked my ass. The first few days were pretty rough. Aside from visiting the bathroom frequently, I was feeling very drained and even got a fever. Towards the end of the week, I was starting to feel much better, but I didn’t know if I was feeling better because of the cleanse working or because I just was no longer feeling shitty. It’s tough to tell, but I think it worked and the reason I believe that is because I don’t experience the stiff neck / headache combination anymore. Sure I get occasional headaches, but not like the unique symptoms of lyme. 

So, did the symptoms of lyme just naturally go away over time? Did the chiropractic adjustment do the trick? Or was it the seven day cleanse that kicked the symptoms? I don’t know, but maybe it was combination of them all. I’ve heard that people who have lyme do some sort of cleanse to clear out various toxins and reboot their system. Again, I don’t know – I’m not an expert in the medical field. What I do know is, is that I hope the symptoms never return and I hope I never get a tick bite again!

Permission to Fail, Permission to Succeed

Comments 2 Standard

Do you have permission to fail? We often think that failure is this terrible thing and sure, it doesn’t always feel good, but something to remember is that it can be a stepping stone to where you are trying to go. 

When you don’t have permission to fail it can be very difficult to take a risk. When you take a risk you enter the unknown. You don’t know if you are going to fail or succeed, however, if you do end up failing, it is not the end of the world. Actually, you have an opportunity to grow and learn from the experience. You then can use that information and apply it to your next step. 

I have failed many times. The beginning is the worst. Failing your first few times is kind of like when you first experience a breakup. It feels like everything is over and you will never find love again and the sun will never shine as bright as it once did. Over time you learn that, sure, going through a breakup sucks, but its not the end of the world. You heal and then you move on. It is similar with failing. You fall off the bike, it hurts, you get back on the bike and go some more, you fall and repeat. The goal isn’t to just continue failing forever, but without being able to fail at all, it may keep you from even making a move on your dream.

What about permission to succeed? Is it okay to be seen? It it okay to be heard? It is okay to achieve goals? What if most people around you aren’t able to find success? How does that affect you? Would they give you permission to succeed? Maybe, maybe not. So where do you get permission from? What about you? If there is nobody around that is willing to give you permission to fail, to take risks or to succeed – maybe it is time to believe in yourself and give yourself permission. 

Everyone has their own shit to deal with. Perhaps it is time to just strap on the right tool belt for you and get to work. You are not special and life is definitely not fair. I’ve learned this the hard way. Life can be as beautiful as a sunset and harsh as the cold air of winter. Grab your tools and create the life you desire, because in the end, nobody else is going to do it for you, but really – would you want them to?
