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…

Being Wild

Comments 2 Standard

There tends to be a lot of fear around traveling for people. It’s not that I don’t experience fear, it’s just that my affinity usually drowns out the anxiety. Since I left my hometown in 2006, I have moved around the United States a lot and from my travels and short experience living in a RV, I find that most people I come across are kind. I reached out to a few places to see if there was an opportunity to offer my services and to teach in their space. There were two places that were interested and then it was just a matter of showing up and meeting in person. It is really refreshing how welcoming people can be. It makes me even more excited for all the people that I will get to meet on our adventures!

Things are unfolding for us as teachers and for our new brand. The transition from our old business to our new business has been terrifying and exhilarating. This is still just the beginning, but I am happy with where we are at. I am also happy with where we are headed, despite not knowing how it all will unfold. 

I’m uncomfortable, but I’m happy. Learning to do yoga is helping me open up. Teaching meditation is helping me open up. I’m very uncomfortable, but I’m getting comfortable with that. I don’t care if I make mistakes. I do care if I am learning. For me, magic is not in the very well planned out life. Magic is in the moment. The other day I came home from a yoga class and I was listening to music. I got inspired to just stand out by the field we are parked near and watch the sun set. I felt very present, like nothing else mattered except that moment. It’s relief to not give a shit with what happened in the past or what I may be anxious about in the future. That is what I love and what I live for. 

We created Souls Gone Wild because we love to teach and to travel. At the end of my life, I won’t be counting all the things that I bought, I will be remembering all the amazing experiences I had. I will remember the people that touched my life and the lives that I impacted. Being wild is about embracing your freedom, whatever freedom means for you. For me, being wild is not about getting drunk or high and being reckless. For us, it means to travel and to have new experiences. From teaching a workshop, to hanging 300 feet in the air or just standing by a field, present and aware in my body. This is what it means for me to be wild at the moment, but I do believe that as we continue this journey, things will just get crazier. Check out our youtube channel and follow our journey!

How to Make Money & Travel

Leave a comment Standard

I love what I do and I love that it gives me the freedom to go where I want when I want. Given I have an internet connection Tee Hee. This allows my husband and I to RV full time. I teach ESL (English as a second language) with VIPKID as an independent contractor. I also teach yoga and my husband teaches meditation on our website http://www.soulsgonewild.com 

VIPKID is NOT a scam. I was a little worried at first but it is a completely legit company.

What is required to work with VIPKID?

1.You must have at least a Bachelors Degree. It can be in any field. I have a Bachelors in Agricultural Business lol.

2.You must be able to pass a background check.

3.You must be able to work in the U.S. or Canada.

4.You will need at least one year of experience teaching, tutoring, coaching, or mentoring. I worked for the YMCA for 1.5 years working with kids. 

If you meet these basic requirements and would like to apply use this link https://t.vipkid.com.cn/?refereeId=10605971&refersourceid=a01  Just fill out the application and you’ll be on your way!

After applying you will be able to set up an interview. They have you do a kind of demo of how you would teach a class. I highly recommend watching some youtube videos about the interview. That is what I did. Also, wearing an orange shirt is not required but you will get bonus points for wearing one. 

After your interview you will hear within 24 hours whether or not you have made it to the next round of the process.

I love VIPKID. I teach Chinese children from the ages of 4-12 how to speak English. It works exactly like video calling while clicking through slides in an online classroom. The slides are apart of the lesson plan for that child. The curriculum is already set for you. Each class is at least 25 minutes long. After each class you have to give feedback on how the child did for that class. You get to set your own schedule. The pay is based on your experience level ($14 – $22/hr). You don’t have to be super with technology. There are professional IT people, called fireman, ready to help you are having problems during class.

How it works. You log into your VIPKID account and there you will see what children have booked your time slots. You will be able to see their info and what material you will be teaching. You have to teach for at least 25 minutes per class but don’t go over 30 minutes. There are about 25 ish slides per class so time management is key. Try to manage 1 minute per slide. After the classes you need to leave feedback. If you don’t you will get docked in pay. I usually have a bunch of classes back to back. so I will jot down quick notes during class and then do all of the feedback when I am finished with classes.

You get to set your own Schedule. When I joined the team we had to have at least 15 time slots available each week. This means you only have to teach 7.5 hours a week. Obviously you can do more. You open the slots you are available to teach. The parents of the kids are the ones who book the classes. 

The only really tricky part, at least for me, is the time difference. Beijing, China is 12 hours ahead. (This will change with Daylight Savings Time. China does not change their clocks.) The prime time for teaching is 6:00 AM – 10:00 AM Monday – Friday, Friday 9:00 PM – Saturday 10:00 AM, and Saturday 9:00 PM – Sunday 10:00 AM. That is wicked right??? Everyone has their own preference on how they set their schedule. Some get up early, some stay up all night on weekends, some people do both. It is totally up to you. I love that my days are free to go out and adventure.

The pay breakdown. You get a base pay, depends on your experience. You get $1 per class for just showing up and being on time. Pretty easy right. You will get another $.50 per class after you teach 35 classes that month. If you reach 45 classes in a month it will go from $.50 to $1. Pretty awesome right!!!??? It gets even better. A parent cannot book your time slot within 24 hours of the class time unless you allow it by clicking the 24 hr button. That would allow the parent to book that class within 24 hrs. If someone books that class within 24 hrs, BOOM, you get an additional $2 for short notice. You also get paid for the class if you have a NO SHOW student or the student is having an IT issue. 

Example: 

$9 per class base pay (this is not a guarantee, just an example)

$1 per class for being on time

$.50 per class after teaching 35 classes in a single month. Turns to $1 per class after teaching 45 and greater in a single month.

$2 additional if booked short notice

<than 35 classes is $10 per class

>or= to 35 classes is $10.50 per class

>or= to 45 classes is $11 per class

So if you teach your 46th class for the month and its a short notice booking you would get paid $13 for that one 25 minute class.

If you are worried that you are not super tech savvy, don’t. There are people ready to help you. That is one thing I love about VIPKID. They want their teachers to be prepared and comfortable. There are firemen to call during class if something isn’t working correctly. I also have the added bonus that my husband is pretty tech savvy, thank goodness. 

Being a teacher with VIPKID has been one of the coolest jobs I have ever had. I really enjoy having fun and educating kids. The freedom of making my own schedule, the pay, the support from the VIPKID community and the ability to travel are what make this job so great!
