I love you and I support you.
I am SO excited to share my latest interview for THE REASON, my collection of interviews with big hearted visionaries, leaders, teachers and healers about THE REASONS why they feel how they feel, love like they love and serve how they serve.
Susan Nichols is one of my dearest friends and greatest inspirations on the planet.
I love and appreciate her with my whole heart.
She shows us all how to vision a dream and create it with inspired devotion.
If you practice Yoga then you have probably used one of her inventions.
She is the inventor and creator of the Skidless Towel, the microfibre towel with silicon nubs that you place over your Yoga mat so that you don’t slip while you practice Yoga.
Her first company was the Yoga brand Yogi Toes which she sold 2 years ago.
If it were not for her clear Vision, her crystalline Mission and Purpose and her core Values, she might have let some of life’s challenges stop her from creating her Vision.
But she stayed in alignment with her highest potential and has manifested some incredible creations that the world deeply needs.
Her new creation is called New Hippie, a living brand that is raising the consciousness of the planet and it is so exciting and uplifting to watch her gifts continuously unfold.
It was my great honor and pleasure to interview her about living in alignment with your Purpose+Values+Message+Vision.

My vision for you is that this interview helps you get clear about THE REASONS that motivate you in your life and that it supports you in conjuring up greater COURAGE to openly and vulnerably share THE REASONS that inspire you to live in alignment with your Purpose, Values, Message and Vision with those you love and serve.
If you like it, then like it, love it, comment on it share it with those you love and serve and take some time to ask yourself these powerful questions about THE REASON why you do what you do and feel how you feel.
REMEMBER, THE REASON REVEALS THE WAY.

I have all over body chills and tears in my eyes <3
This woman is one of my new superheroes and has tapped into a frequency that I vision myself fully embodying <3
Ever since some recent sightings of Great White Sharks in the glorious Santa Barbara ocean many people have been asking me:
“When you swim and surf in the ocean are you afraid of the sharks?”
And I say,
“I choose to LOVE all the creatures in the sea and know that the LOVE that I am keeps me harmoniously aligned with them all.”
When I was living in Indonesia my Dad took me on a 2 week trip around the Spice Islands and we lived on a beautiful boat and went diving 3 times a day.
In the days before our trip I dreamt of sharks every night and was feeling a lot of fear about seeing one.
Being the wise man that he is, he told me “There are a lot more sharks on dry land than there are in the sea.”
This message was delivered by the adventurous Soul who jumped into a swarm of thousands of mating hammerhead sharks and sank to the bottom of the sea where he watched the the aquatic love dance while breathing underwater.
Lo and behold on our first night dive on that diving in uncharetered Indonesian waters when all I had was a flashlight showing me what was only right in front of me, I spotted 3 giant sharks within the first minute.
Yes my heart quickened.
Yes I had a momentary holding my breath “OH MY GOD I AM WITH 3 GIANT SHARKS” all over body shivver.
And yes, I CHOSE LOVE and TRUST and SURRENDER.
And because I did I BECAME ONE with the sea and her wonders were revealed to me.
Check out THIS INCREDIBLE VIDEO of these magical human beings dancing with the marine beings.
Their mission is to END THE WAR on sharks, whales, dolphins and other marine animals.
Let’s remember that the ocean was our original home.
We are all water beings here to embody and share LOVE with all of existence.
I am here now.
At Cannon Beach on the Oregon Coast.
I am loungerlating in an old school leather chair kicking back with my feet criss crossed on this matching ottoman and rocking with a cup of hot tea in my hands.
I am perched in a wood house that is filled with memorabilia from fishermen and a lifetime of ocean lovers on a hill top gazing out to Haystack Rock which is one of the most sacred natural displays of beauty that I have ever seen.
There are thousands of white seagulls flying around and resting upon Haystack Rock.
Just in front of my view of Haystack Rock there is copious amounts of Queen Anne’s Lace flowers wildly growing with dollops of pink roses here and there.
The surf is flowing in constantly…wave after wave of deep aqua blue power & the soundtrack of the sea is lulling me into what feels like an alpha wave inner state of calm and centered beingness.
To the left of Haystack Rock there are 2 surfers in the ocean in head to toe super thick wetsuits and they must be truly stoked because they are catching wave after perfect wave.
Up here on the hill I can’t see the expression on their faces but I would guess they are smiling ear to ear.
And I am truly hoping that they are staying warm out there in that frigid water.
And I kinda wish I had my surfboard here.
There is a big white fishing boat slowly trolling by in the distance and my wish is that they are catching lots of fish.
There are droves of people and dogs on the beach.
Some are walking.
Some are running.
Some are skipping.
Some are biking.
Some are sitting.
Some are happy.
Some are in deep contemplation.
I have a feeling we all feel really lucky to be here.
I feel really lucky.
Last night we took a long walk down the beach at sunset until we couldn’t walk any further.
This beach is gargantuan.
Super long and super broad.
I took so many photographs and will share them with you accompanied with inspirational messages for years to come.
The scale of Nature’s majesty here makes me feel incredibly tiny.
And this littleness feels really good.
There is one lone man who is sitting in a chair very close to the waterline with his giant camera set up on a tripod.
My fantasy is that he is doing a time lapsed photography session.
He has a big pair of binoculars and he is probably looking at everything I am looking at but up close and in detail.
Hey, here’s a telescope.
I can get in on that up close and personal detail should I choose to…or I can just stay in this perspective with the bird’s eye view.
Now there is a small group of 4 people talking to him and he has leant them his binoculars. They are pointing at something in the direction of Haystack Rock.
As I tune into their frequency I now find myself with tears rolling down my face for no particular reason.
And now it’s not just tears.
Its a big deep cry.
It’s one of those “God I am so blessed to be alive” cries.
And it is really quite simple why this is happening right now…
I am deeply touched by this place.
We all are.
How could you not be?
It is familiar to me and it feels like one of my homes on the planet.
I feel deeply held by Mother Earth here.
The energy is so huge here that I feel like a child in her arms.
I feel tiny and it’s a relief to remember this Universal Truth.
I am here in this home and in this sacred place because my dear friend, who is my soul sister has an amazing family who is part of my soul familia here on beautiful planet Earth.
I just naturally and easily love them and I am grateful to receive the love that they naturally flow to me.
And I am so blessed that they graciously invited me into their mystical world here in Cannon Beach and into their super sweet world back in Portland.
Like me, they are all beauty givers and nature lovers and artists and lovers of life.
They are sensitive and kind and gracious and generous souls.
And I can palpably feel the love and attention to every detail that has gone into emulating the pure perfection of nature’s majesty in this home temple on the hill that is giving me shelter and a cozy spot to rest and relax.
This place is part of their family’s legacy passed down from 4 generations back.
My soul sister’s grandparents have passed away but I can feel their Spirits here and I deeply appreciate everything they have created here.
And I am feeling so much Love and Gratitude for my parents and grandparents and their never ending love for the sea and all of nature and for always creating dwellings that bring the outside in and have always helped remind me that WE ARE NATURE.
I am doing my best to keep these traditions alive.
And I feel their spirits here with me now (especially my dear ole Dad) and know how deeply they would appreciate this awe inspiring place too.
It always amazes me that the deepest tears I cry are the ones evoked by Love and Gratitude.
The waves of tears have now subsided but I know they will come again and I invite them to visit me anytime.
Wave after wave will continue to flow throughout the tides of time during this miraculous life.
What will always remain amidst the ebbs and flows is this Heart centered Spiritual Soul presence that is as strong and powerful as Haystack Rock❤️
This perfectly describes how after teaching Yoga for 15,000 hours over the course of 19 years to thousands of people it became crystal clear to me that Yoga is not a practice that you simply do on a mat for 90 minutes a day.
True Yoga is a way of life where your intention is to live every moment in alignment with your purpose, values and big vision.
True Yoga is the path of incredibly conscious choices with your thoughts, words and deeds and in your relationships with all people, places and things so that as much as possible everything that you are choosing to be involved with is a resonant match for who you are and why you are here.
True Yoga is a practice that truly enhances your existence and assists you in becoming and embodying your highest potential.
It is this realization that inspired me to create Vibration Transformation, a lifestyle program for Heart centered Visionaries, Leaders and Teachers so that there is a clear multi-dimensional Yogic based path that helps you raise your vibration on all levels, planes and dimensions of your life so that everything matches your mission, message and vision.
Countless blessings to us all on our magical journeys of LOVELIGHTBLISS.
After a back to back morning of sauna, meditation, Yoga practice and several clients I took a mid-day break to head down to the beach and jump into the ocean.
I came back up to my house and did my last Skype coaching session of the day in my bikini with ocean water dripping wet hair :-))
Just as my session ended my friend texted me:
YES! It’s friggin hot and I want to get back in that cool dream scene!
It’s time for round 2 dippety doo.
I cruised down the hill and met her and we caravanned back down to the beach.
As we drove I was oodling at how much fun I was having.
I am following one of my best friends as she revs through the twists and turns of Montecito in her new super foxy black Porsche and I am wearing nothing but my leopard print Brazilian bikini, freshly made green juice in hand singing along with Pharrell as he raises the vibration of the planet with HAPPY.
I was blissing.
We parked down at the same beach where I had just been swimming hours before, walked down to the seashore and the first thing I see is a dolphin leaping out of the ocean.
I looked at my girl and said:
I am going to go swimming with those lil pippins.
I threw down my towel, kicked off my sandals, flung off my sunglasses and ran into the sea and swam as fast as I could out towards a small pod of about 6-8 dolphins who were leaping and playing.
I have been swimming with wild dolphins many times in the Bahamas but this was the first time that I have ever been this close to our lil Pacific babies
Whenever I swim with the dolphins I talk to them in a high pitched tongue enhanced squeal that they seem to love.
People have always called me the Dolphin Girl when I am around the dolphins because they are always drawn to me and swirl their love mojo all around my everything.
Shortly after getting into the Sea I started my lil dolphin call and a stand up paddle boarder who could see the birds eye view of what was happening said:
They like you and they love that sound you are making and they are coming to play with you.
And then they were right there with me…jumping and frolicking and sparkling their high frequency LOVELIGHTBLISS all around me.
I played in their aquamarine playground with them for awhile and then they cruised up the coast and I started to swim in.
And when I was about half way in they came back and did a few more flips around me.
When I came back to shore and was laying out in the Sun a few people came up to me and said:
We were watching you play with the dolphins…we have never seen anything like that before!
And I said I have never had that experience before.
It’s a lifelong dream come true for me to play with dolphins in my home town.
As the crow flies, that beach, my beach, that I go to all the time is about 1/2 mile from where I grew up in Montecito.
Right here in the bay where I grew up swimming out the raft and hanging out at my God Parent’s beach house and sneaking into the Miramar Pool and getting chased out by Jacques the Miramar bicycle guardman and kayaking in the ocean with my dear ole dad.
Right smack dab in a regular day doing what I do all the time when I am here.
Today a big ole dream came true that I have dreamed about my entire life.
It happened right here.
Right where I am.
So remember to dive into this moment.
Swim after your dreams.
And don’t give up.
There is so much LOVELIGHTBLISS for you here
(This photo was taken of me swimming with one of my fearless radical lover dolphin friends in the deep blue sea off the coast of Bimini.)
On that night I drew this picture of Ardhanarishvara, half Shiva/half Parvati, half woman/half man, the perfect blend of the opposite flows of energy, the Divine Lovers merged as one being.
Since then, there has been…
So much clearing of old ways of being that were holding me back from spiritual expansion..
So much cleansing of suppressed mojo.
This path requires sacrifice because not everyone is devoted to this level of consciousness.
It is a path that requires great devotion and courage.
One has to be willing to shed the old ways like a snake shedding it’s skin.
And lemme tell ya…there are some big ole detox moments at first when you want to cling to the old ways because you are going into unchartered territory.
You have to have Faith Supreme in the Supreme Force of Love and trust that the burning is going to set you free.
But it’s SO worth it because you create so much space to receive high octane LOVELIGHTBLISS.
More than ever, I am truly in awe of Love right now.
Love is the way and Love is the answer.
I am so grateful more than ever that this path of Fearless Radical Love is the way that I happily choose to walk through life.
And this is the truly amazing thing…
The first and foremost and foundational Beloved relationship is totally internal.
It is the Divine Union of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine within.
Just like this picture.
It truly is a state of being that is real.
And…it feels SO good and so right.
The high frequency Love that I am attracting from this internal energetic state of being is so pure and direct and obvious and beautiful.
It reminds me of my first memory (that some people say is not possible and a bunch of malarky but it happened because I was there….mmmmmmmk?).
My first memory was…
Being the egg and my #1 commitment was to allow ONLY THE BEST.
Being the sperm and my #1 commitment was I AM THE ONE.
That’s how I got here.
Being the best that I can be and being the one is the perfect way to describe this Shiva Shakti Beloved Love.
It is the energy that creates life and magic and miracles.
So here I am…
I found everything inside of myself that I have been looking for outside of myself.
And now that I have it inside it is happening in more balanced, harmonious and super sweet ways than ever externally.
Today I am grateful for all of you Fearless Radical Lovers out there who are dancing this dance with me…because it’s a lot more fun to talk and breathe and dance and play with others who are on this path.
Thank you for doing the deep work and raising the bar on what is possible in our relationships with all people, places and things.
Being in right relationship with people that are willing and able (and we are all able if we devote ourselves) to work and play like this is a total turn on, so inspirational and clears the space so that LOVELIGHTBLISS and a whole lotta passion and play can prevail internally and externally on all levels, planes and dimensions.
And let’s remember what Marianne Williamson said:
“The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one.”
It all begins within.
Be the best you can be…which means CHOOSE LOVE!!!!
Be the one.
You are the one that you have been waiting for.
LOVE is the Heart of all Spirituality and BELOVED LOVE is the most evolutionary and advanced path on the planet
Why is intimate relationship such a burning alchemical vessel for growth, healing, and transformation? One of the reasons is that in the mandala of the beloved there is nowhere to hide. All of your early trauma and wounding arose in an interpersonal context and must likewise be unwound within a relational field. Your beloved has appeared as this field, but she has also come promising the end of your world as you have known it.
If you have a partner who knows your early history, who is intimately familiar with your core vulnerabilities, and is compassionately attuned to its unfolding and illumination, you are teetering on the edge of cliff. But it is a cliff of grace. But this grace is on fire. On the one hand, a portal has been opened, your guide has appeared, to mirror to you the wholeness that you are. She will hold you and will relentlessly reveal to you the mysteries of your body, your psyche, your organs, your cells, and your nervous system. What a precious situation.
On the other hand, he is an emissary of the unknown. In his presence, universes come and go; there is no ground, no reference point to lean into; no matter how deeply you look, you find only empty space. Nothing is certain anymore. You are being held, but it is a holding that is unbearably vulnerable and without history. You stand totally unclothed in her presence, unable to fool him like you fool so many others, unable to pretend you have it all together. The beloved has no interest in your holding it all together. She wants all the way inside and will use whatever skillful means she must to find you. She will always push up against that which is unresolved within you. She loves you this much.
The beloved is mad crazy in love with you, but may not fit your historical requirements and ideas about what this actually means, about the true implications of having a beloved in your life. She has appeared as your tour guide into the secret areas of your body. If you follow her, your world will become unraveled, you will be taken behind the scenes where the relative world is being organized. The beloved sees you as you are and this is terrifying. In his presence, you are beheld as the majesty that you are, but this is unbearable. You come face to face with the greatest fear that you’ve ever known, but have never been able to articulate: that you are loved. For when you are truly loved, when you are entirely seen, when you are fully held, it is the end of your world as you know it. You will never be the same. You will never again be able to pretend that you are other than perfect and precious as you are. And this is terrifying.
You long to be loved, to be seen, to be held, but please know that the implications of this are immense; they are cosmic in proportion. To allow yourself to be loved in this way a part of you must die. Everything you thought you weren’t must be surrendered. You must let go of the stories of the unlovable one, the awakened one, the special one, the imperfect one, and the despairing one. Love wishes to reveal your nakedness, to remove your clothing, and to burn away all that is false and less than whole within you. What you are is a raging firestorm of creativity, sensuality, openness, warmth, and kindness.
Love will never stop until you know this.
If you will allow her or him, the beloved will show you the infinite ways that your heart is at risk of breaking open in any moment, and never, ever being put back together again. She will plead with you to let it all go, to fall on the ground, and to allow yourself to fall apart, so she can show you that you were never, ever together to begin with. She will reveal to you that this raw, tender, vulnerable open heart that you feel beating inside you – right here and right now – that this is your gift to the world.
