I did not photoshop this self-portrait.
This is a real butterfly, up close along with my freckles and blemishes! This moment is equally miraculous as it is mundane. Here I am in full mommy mode, picking up my son from school and taking him to Kung Fu on Valentines. In the background, Devin, age 11, has naturally shapeshifted into a butterfly.
My part-time passion is playing taxi to my son, when I’m not writing, speaking and coaching about everything that crosses the intersection between sex and spirit. With all my various projects, it’s sometimes hard to keep up a monthly newsletter. I’m sorry for not reaching out before the Chinese New Year, (Year of the Dog) to say:
Happy BELATED Valentines to YOU, Dear One!
You’ve probably already forgiven me for being late this year–Now, it’s time for me to forgive myself. I can be pretty hard on myself when I’m juggling a lot of balls and happen to drop one. Can you relate?
If it’s any consolation, It’s not that I haven’t been thinking about YOU, my dear friends, lovers and even fans, it’s just, I didn’t know what to say.
Even if I’m really proud of all my upcoming co-creations, I didn’t want to just send out another list of invitations or add new items to your valentines wish-list. For some reason, I feel I OWE you more of a heart to heart connection. Not just because all the successful business coaches say that you should be vulnerable, but because I actually do enjoy sharing myself with you. Believe it or not, I have an ongoing conversation with you YOU inside my head. It sounds a little like this…
YOU: Hey, so where’s my Valentines Letter?!
ME: Oh I’m so sorry, I’ve been swamped.
YOU: Well, what have you been up to?
ME: This Valentine’s day marks my 16th anniversary with Michael, and yet it somehow it feels like we’re still in a honeymoon stage! We celebrated with a romantic dinner by the fireplace on the floor of our living room. And did you know, his brother Christian is visiting from Paris (You remember the tall handsome gay brother that made an appearance in our reality show?) He took us on a long weekend pleasure trip to Vegas to celebrate Devin’s Birthday and has been helping sort out My mother-in-law’s estate so she can settle comfortably into assisted living.
And recently, every ounce of creative energy has been directed toward my new anthology: Secret Lives of S_x Shamans. It has unbelievable true-life stories by s_xual healers from over 8 countries! The manuscript is finally complete and is being considered for publication by a trade publisher! I’ll let you know how that goes when I get back from Hawai’i. I’m packing for another week-long long retreat with ISTA and my soul tribe. And in my free time…
…I’ve totally re-vamped my online store so that I can showcase my books and new products, as well as my calendar, so I can feature my whole travel schedule for the year. I even added a new link to order our reality TV show, Polyamory: Married & Dating from iTunes.
YOU: Well, why didn’t you just say so!
ME: I admit I often feel pressure to come up with something clever before sending out a newsletter. I don’t want to clutter your inbox, just talk about me, me, me all the time. I yearn to make a contribution and add value to your life.
YOU: You do. Even if I can’t make it to one of your life-changing retreats, and don’t have time to read your books or try your new products…I still want to hear from you. You inspire me and make me think…I believe there is a reason we are in each other’s lives and I am always happy to hear from you.
ME: Wow. Thanks for being so understanding! I am grateful to have such an enlightened community, not just in the physical realms but also in the etheric dimensions (as well as in my head!) I appreciate this little chat and feel more motivated now to stay in touch!
Until the next time we meet, big warm hugs,
P.S. Here’s a Free Gift to enjoy for Valentines:
Its’ a powerful video interview with my friend and colleague, Sophia Leva-Marie, who is breaking the silence about Sex Magic. Sophia took her building blocks of body wisdom, beauty, divinity, luxury & sacred sexuality and went on a personal quest. In her findings, she’s teamed up with an impressive panel of 30 doctors, healers, educators, mentors, coaches, transformational leaders and sexperts in the fields of sex, manifestation, money, somatics and so much more! Join us here:
P.S.S My Online Store has been RE-VAMPED:
Beyond selling my new books, DVDs, and TV Show, I have added some of my absolute favorite products such as:
Tachyonized Tantra Pleasure Wand – The Original!
My new favorite tool for ecstasy. It can be used for self-pleasuring, for sacred spot Healing, or part of foreplay before sacred union, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you feel ready for orgasm. If the energy ‘build up’ becomes too intense at any time during your pleasure play, use the smaller rounded end of the wand towards your body and stroke through your aura from head to toe several times. This will open up a dynamic flow of energy and ecstasy through your whole body, it goes beyond energy buildup in your genitals.
