When we follow conventional maps, we get to typical destinations. For me, at the beginning of my non-corporate career, I wanted to travel the world in a van with a sexy, adventurous man who would do yoga with me while building my business and spending as much time in Mama Nature as possible. There were no maps for that.
After being discouraged with smooze-y sales tactics and bored by mainstream business advice, I turned to the spiritual world to change the way I think about business.
I vaguely remember a deer running across the road or maybe it was a hallucination. I was, after all, high on cocaine, cannabis and alcohol. For years, I pushed down my darkness. I didn’t know how to use my voice. This is my journey to true freedom from shame.
“We have to let you go.”
My world went dim. I felt like it was all over. Tears filled my eyes. Internally, my Ego screamed, “Nooooo,” as my body experienced something else. A deep unexplained relief washed over me.
It’s 3am, here in Tulum. I’m lying next to a beautiful Argentinian man that I barely know. Two days ago, he said, “I love you.” I said it back. I hear him snore, deep in sleep, and ask myself, “Will people think that I am foolish for loving so freely?” I think about my other partners and lovers wondering, “Is it possible to have it all?”
So what do these sweet bedside reflections have to do with my job as a Soul Coach?!
The reason I’m writing this is not explain how the world is going to shit because of plastic. I am writing to talk about the positive side. A life without plastic. A life that is rich, sexy, wondrous, and beautiful!
Like a clingy girlfriend, I was clutching at cash, hoarding my resources, nickel-and-diming wherever I could to keep it all together. Then, about two years ago, I stumbled upon the idea of abundance mindset. I let go of money, knowing it would come back to me and sure enough, it did.
