Being Me in Maui
Maui was wild. I went for Being You, the amazing Dr. Dain’s class. I am following the energy vs. my strategic mind in my choices and the energy for going to Maui to his course was deep from within my pelvis, upward up my spine and very richly expansive… I said YES!
The course itself was beyond words outstanding. If you have even the slightest interest, GO. This man is one of the most precious gifts to the planet that I have ever met. I became aware of how much I haven’t trusted my knowing. How I am amazed at the generous non-judgmental being Dr. Dain is and how I can’t help but see the places where I judge my worth and I am invited to make a new choice.
I made stunning connections with the people in the course, from deepening friendships with my healer friend Ella to my client and friend Jordon to new friends Tony & Sylvia local to LA to new friend Alicia in Maui and Debbie beyond. Amazing souls! They saw me laugh, cry, be vulnerable and open. To be so real with
people is the most fulfilling experience for me. True intimacy embodied.
I felt one with the earth, with people I met… I LOVED paddle boarding and adored digging deep into the ocean to go as fast as I could, full body engagement… with a turtle head poking up and a rainbow at the end of one paddle celebrating LIFE and all that’s possible! I met some lovely men who took me on dates and I even ran into Wayne Dyer along the path and gave him a big hug!
One of the best experiences was dancing on the beach… the first time was at sunset on the first night… unpacked and headed straight down for sunset with my ipod… I knew people were watching but I just didn’t care… I danced for almost 20 minutes and watched to catamaran’s launch into the sea… then walked back into the hotel, outside tiki bar and it was as if EVERY man wanted to buy me a drink. It was bizarre… I sense they could feel how much I loved my body, loved being a woman, and loved shining… truly yummy.
The last time was on the morning of my departure, I walked along the ocean’s edge and yet I really wanted to dance… so I said to myself, Screw it and began to dance to my ipod… to Wunderkind (and I just interviewed Alanis Morissette and told her that I did this!) and just as I began to dance, RIGHT THERE these whales breached!! Again and again!!! As if to dance with me! Celebrate my courage to be different and dance. And Alanis’ music just took it over the edge and I cried happy tears…
Coming home from Maui I am more connected to me, more aware, not necessarily more comfortable… in fact I’m crying quite a bit… yet Dr. Dain asked if I have misapplied joy for sadness… happy tears? I am wobbly and uncertain and not thinking much… just choosing based on the energy and wild wonderful things are showing up… and I’m not trying… which is freaking me out a bit… yet I keep breathing and loving me and being tender with my vulnerable self.
I sure love Dr. Dain, Maui, the whales… and my sweet self… my courage to keep going for I KNOW I’m just getting started. And I sure love you. xoxoxo Allana>
