Tantra may be the “in” thing right now, but it is about so much more than just sex, though orgasms can be a perk! Tantra is not a collection of sexual positions; it is not the Karma Sutra. Rather, it is a way of life. In fact, the word Tantra means to weave, to expand consciousness. It’s more about holding space for your partner and listening than it is about contortionist bedroom acrobatics!

Elise Carr, a former model and journalist, traded in her high heels to dive into sacred spirituality and sexuality. She’s now recognized as Australia’s best Empowerment Mentor. She even trained with the White Tigresses in the art of jade egg practices. Elise is a Certified Holistic Health Coach, Reiki Master and Esoteric Tantra Practitioner. She wants to encourage women to work with their yoni to reconnect with the sacred feminine, and release the shame that is so often associated with that part of our bodies.

We carry so much negative energy around our yoni – we have forgotten the beauty that is there. It is time to open up that conversation, reconnect with our sensuality. It is ok for us to express and to love ourselves – this is how we heal. Tantra is about learning who we really are. It is the meshing of the physical and the spiritual. It is about self-expression, union, love and connection.

Let’s face it, losing weight is tough. Making any kind of drastic lifestyle change can seem daunting and difficult. But the alternative is often scarier.

Tim Kaufman was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a condition characterized by hyper mobile joints. His joints were so loose they would simply pop out of their sockets. After a failed operation to fix the issue, Tim became addicted to prescription pain medication. He was also addicted to food. Moving less and less, eating more and more, the weight piled on. He lost his lust for life, he was depressed, and used food and prescription drugs as an escape.

After two close relatives passed away from cancer, Tim knew he had to do something. He applied for bariatric surgery. But his health was so bad that his doctor refused to sign it off. He had to take a different approach. He began making small changes. Cutting out red meat. Choosing lower-fat cheeses. Then one day, he watched Fat Sick and Nearly Dead. Before the credits rolled, he’d ordered a juicer. A 30 day juice fast later, Tim was well and truly on his way towards better health. But it was Forks over Knives that really gave him a new lease of life.

From being unable to get up from his chair, Tim has gone on to climb mountains, complete 100-mile bike rides, run a marathon. He’s even training for Iron Man. He freed himself from prescription medication and is the fittest he’s ever been. His whole family has felt the benefits. Swapping the buffalo wings and diet pepsi for a plant based diet saved his life. He now helps other people transition to a healthier way of life through his blog, Fat Man Rants.

How can a billionaire, who lives in a penthouse, who has never had to work in his life, who has never had to choose between paying the rent and buying food, who has never had to think about how to pay for healthcare, be a man of the people? How can he possibly relate to the lives of normal Americans? How can a business man who bankrupted six of his businesses, and whose net worth would be superior had he simply put his inheritance in a bank, be classed as a great business brain? How can a man who’s made no bones about being sexist, and repeatedly made shockingly derogatory comments about women have had any kind of female following? How did he get voted in?

He talks a good game, that’s how. His rhetoric was appealing to the masses, those who’d been underserved by previous administrations, those tired of the same old statements and lack of change. The “alternative” facts he sprinkled into his speeches, and the questionable “truths” his campaign manager shared probably also helped (incidentally, check out this YouTube clip of Kelly Ann Conway doing Chicago – hilarious!)

But if we look at the solid facts, immigrants are not taking our jobs (and ALL Americans, except for Native Indians, are immigrants anyway!). A wall won’t fix the job crisis or the immigration crisis. The “swamp” isn’t being “drained”, only filled with more people who have no understanding of, or interest in, what people really need. Affordable care is the same thing as Obamacare. And the last thing the world needs is more racism and outdated views about women!

Ok, so what can we do? How do we fight lies? How can we shift the story? We have to start the conversation and speak the truth. We’re seeing more and more women rise up and begin to get involved in politics—let’s stand up and be counted ladies! In the words of Delores Huerta: “Every moment is an organizing opportunity, every person is a potential activist, every minute is a chance to change the world.” Let’s not allow fear and anger to stop us living life. No matter what is going on politically, we are in control of our lives. You can be whatever you want it to be – don’t let anybody stop you!

You could eat all the right things and exercise every day, but if your mind believes you’re sick, you will be. On the other hand, if you believe that you are healthy, you can heal anything. Just like Miracle Man Morris Goodman says: man becomes what he thinks.

Khristee Rich fell ill when she was in college. She had chronic fatigue, brain fog, she was bed-ridden much of the time—she couldn’t work, go on dates, socialize, even write an email. But no one knew how to treat her. Doctors didn’t even believe she was ill, stating she was simply “depressed” and “stressed”. One doctor even told her she simply had to accept that she would be sick for the rest of her life. Khristee tried everything, from reiki to qi gong and acupressure, but nothing worked.

Finally, she was diagnosed with heavy metal toxicity—with blood levels of mercury and lead so high she should have been paralyzed or brain damaged. Unwilling to go through potentially fatal medical chelation therapy, Khristee began researching natural chelators. Using a combination of plant foods, supplements and visualization meditations, she freed herself of heavy metals in just one month.

Khristee knew she had a higher purpose than just being sick. She’s now a Visibility and Confidence Coach, and helps entrepreneurs boost their confidence so they can shine. Because when you show up for yourself, you can show up for others. Sign up at The Dancing Curtain for a free PDF: 5 Easy Ways to Boost Confidence and Get More Clients.
