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?

Standing in your Truth

Leave a comment Standard

Sometimes standing in your truth takes courage. People may not understand or accept what you are doing, but that is okay. Standing in your truth takes strength. The judgment and invalidation will always be there, but will you? 

“You talk too much,” “You are weird,” “You create too much,” “Sorry pal, big dreams aren’t real.” The list goes on and on. Whatever you handle, will you let it bring you down, or will you laugh it all away? You might not think you are, but you’re stronger than it. What if you stood your ground and continued on your journey? Where would you end up? Would your vision come to life? 

Standing in your truth takes commitment. The way you take care of your body with a good diet and exercise, you have to do the same with living your truth. You have to be loyal to your cause. Remaining loyal will provide a payout better than winning the lottery. Huh? How could anything be better than winning the lottery? Well, in my opinion, experiencing your dreams is worth more than any lottery payout. The peace, the fulfillment and happiness that comes with a dream are priceless. 

I often read about people giving themselves only a certain amount of time to pursue their dream and if it doesn’t work they close up shop. That doesn’t resonate with me. I’m willing to spend my entire life fulfilling my dreams. So, all the invalidation that comes my way, it doesn’t matter. What matters is my courage, my strength and my commitment. A silly judgment from the sideline doesn’t stand a chance with that kind of defense. 

I’m an unusual person, I know, but I’m willing to let things fall apart in order for my truth to sprout. I’m willing to be patient. I’m willing to be criticized. I willing to endure all the growing pains. I’m willing to fail. I’m willing to succeed. I’m willing…

Parasailing & Dolphins

Leave a comment Standard

It’s a windy Sunday morning at our campground in New Jersey. I am tired and happy. The past few days have been absolutely amazing. Yesterday we went parasailing in Cape May for the first time. Luckily it didn’t get canceled due to the weather. We arrived early, but they didn’t make us wait which was cool. We made our way to the dock and saw the boat pulling up. The bugs were like tiny little vampires who were overdue for their blood fix.

We were on the boat and the hair on my body gave a standing ovation. I forgot how cold it got when the speed of the boat increased. My wife and I watched as the guys setup the equipment. It started to lightly rain, but we didn’t care. Finally, we were at the back of the boat and were hooked up. And away we went!

It’s a really cool feeling as you go up in the air. It doesn’t take that long for the cable to fully extend. The view, the feeling – it was all very peaceful. You couldn’t help but smile. It was a cloudy day, but that didn’t stop of us from enjoying the experience. Looking down was really weird, because my mind started wondering what it would be like to just drop from 300 feet in the air. I jumped maybe from 30 feet off a cliff in Canada when I was younger. It’s a weird feeling just free falling. It’s a fun experience, but I don’t like going under in the water and having to swim quickly to the surface. There is always a part of my mind that is like, “Am I going to make it?”

Jumping from 300 feet would be insane, but my mind went back to the view we had. Everything was so tiny from up above; the boat, the waves crashing along the shoreline, the vehicles cruising along the beach. We didn’t want to come back down, but we knew the trip wasn’t going to last very long. 

They asked us before we even went up if we wanted to touch the water with our feet on our way back down. Of course we said yes. When we finally hit the water, I got a little more wet than I expected, but I didn’t mind at all. The whole experience was awesome! We made it back to the boat and enjoyed the ride back with a few unexpected visitors – dolphins! That was also a first for Heather and I. 

After the parasailing event, we went to the Cape May state park and saw the following; a lighthouse, an old WWII bunker and more dolphins! I didn’t know why there was a crowd forming by one part of the beach, but after setting up our spot in the sand and filming a little – I finally saw why the crowd formed. All the dolphins were finally making their way over to our side of the beach. At that moment, I was like wow – how did we get so lucky to parasail and see dolphins twice in one day? 

Selling our business and buying a RV to travel full time was the best decision we have made. I’m so grateful for all the experiences we are having. We worked really hard for two plus years to have this and we will continue to do so we can continue having more awesome adventures. Check out our YouTube video on our entire experience!

Working Smart AND Working Hard

Leave a comment Standard

I never liked the phrase “work harder.” It was mainly because I associated it with manual labor. Now there is nothing wrong with manual labor, some people really enjoy it, but I do not. Because I made that association, I would always resort to the phrase “work smarter, not harder.” What I am realizing is that working smarter is just being more aware of your work flow. You still have to invest a good deal of your energy into whatever you are trying to achieve to get results. That is working hard and that has nothing to do with manual labor, although it could.

Being more aware of your “process” can only make you be better at what you are trying to work on. Maybe having to exercise and meditate before you start your work day is apart of your process. Maybe taking breaks or allowing yourself to day dream is apart of it. Everyone has a different process, but becoming aware of how you operate and following through with it can enhance the experience of work. 

Now, when it comes to working hard, I think it has all to do with how much energy you are putting into a job, project, etc. The more energy you put into it, the more you are going to get back. When my wife and I started our dog walking business, I put EVERYTHING into that. My mindset was: determination. Working smart was utilizing all of my previous dog walking experiences and my tech savvy nature. What really made everything come to fruition was how much energy I was willing to put into the business. I was all in. And because of that combination, because of that recipe – we found success. 

Disassociating manual labor from hard work has changed my perspective on work. I know that I worked hard on our dog walking business. I know that I can do the same for Souls Gone Wild. The interesting thing with this lifestyle is that you tend to have more free time and I like that. I like having time to relax, to talk and to meditate. Sometimes it is nice to just be. I feel like we don’t allow ourselves to do that. For me it important. As much as I realize how important it is to work hard, it’s also important to find balance. I think it is possible to burn yourself out doing something you love. Balance is key. That is the second component to working smart – knowing how much energy you are putting into your work and finding out how much works best for you.

This is a minor breakthrough for me and I find it liberating. The question now is how will I work smart with Souls Gone Wild? How will I work hard with Souls Gone Wild? How will I maintain a healthy balance of work, adventure and rest? I think harvesting all my experiences regarding teaching, healing and doing readings along with the entrepreneurial skills I gained with our pet business will allow myself to work smart. Also, having a sharp focus on what it is I am really trying to achieve is important. From there it is just a matter of putting in the work, but also keeping work / life balance in mind. That was one thing I was not good with regarding our previous business. It took me time to learn how to find the off switch. Knowing when to turn the switch on and off is all about working smart, but when this switch is on – go hard!
