Kundalini Awakening

“I am convinced that in spite of the appalling negativity in the world, the experience of transparency or spiritual clarity will become common; more people moving through the transformation process will make it easier and easier for everyone. Living in and resting in your home frequency may sound like a shallow thing, but the experience of actually changing your frequency to this unifying tone is all-powerful, and it can transport you into the state of heaven on Earth." — Penny Pierce

Kundalini 

The question that peaked my interest as I started writing this last night was, "What the f*** is a Kundalini awakening?!" YES! This thrills me.

I was first introduced to Kundalini as a form of yoga many years ago, and I've now studied with various teachers on both coasts. I've read about it, researched it, and learned of its power in the body (physically and metaphysically) from shamans, energy healers, yogis, and Reiki masters. 

So, this is my take on Kundalini. 

Venom can also be healing. - Nicolas Cage

In the concept of Dharma (the order that makes life in the universe possible), Kundalini is a form of primal energy represented by a female, coiled serpent located at the base of the spine (wrapped around our coccyx), which resides in a slumbering state until aroused. Once summoned, the energy flows upwards through the seven energy centers of the body. It’s fire, literally, and it aligns us with our soul's truth, our highest values, and our senses. 

Once awakened, the psychology and personality of the practitioner is fundamentally transformed.

- COMPLETE BOOK OF CHAKRAS, Cyndi Dale 

Properly practiced Kundalini balances our masculine and feminine energies, uniting our polarities. When we unite yin and yang energies, we can attain the highest levels of awareness; because we are finding a unified way to view ourselves and all people no matter what their sex.  But with all the benefits to awakening your Kundalini there are challenges, as well. This journey is not to be taken lightly. 

“The great Buddhist teacher Dogen said, “Do not think you will necessarily be aware of your own enlightenment.” Perhaps that’s because the enlightened state isn’t considered to be an endpoint, but an ongoing path where the goal recedes and expands as you approach it. - Penny Pierce

I experienced my Kundalini awakening during an intentional meditation with a trusted guide in the fall of 2016. It was insane. When we came out of the mediation, I was crying over the powerful visual images that had flashed before me in a perfect story-telling sequence. I felt the physical changes in my body almost immediately: seeing colors more vividly, hearing things more acutely, and tuning into my intuition like I had never been able to before. 

Three weeks later, my life was completely different. I don’t want to get into the details, but imagine the scene in INCEPTION when Paris flips upside down. YEAH. It’s been a wild ride ever since. You feel energy; you see energy; you become attuned to yourself and the universe. And it will be incredibly difficult to deny your truth moving forward. You can try to deny it, and you will by creating your own obstacles, but ultimately the powerful flow of energy is going be undulating upward with or without you now. And it's always better to go with with the flow. 

Anytime we attempt to awaken something dormit within ourselves, there's going to be a spiritually enlightening moment to follow. You'll realize yourself, but that doesn't mean that anything is solved. I have to work harder than ever to stay on the ground now, but moving forward everything has gotten: better, simpler, lighter, clearer, more fun...a lucid, creative, faithful flow of an organic unfolding. 

And that’s life, and life force. Kundalini. Build up the heat inside you, and wake up. Be true to your heart, tune into your home frequency, and keep on moving forward. You’ve got this. It should be fun! 

How might you change when you get used to living in your body at its highest frequency?

Riding the Waves

This is coming to you hot off the Pacific ocean dust in LA today. How do we ride the waves?

The highs and lows, the ups and downs, the twist and turns. How do we stay in control while also throwing our hands off the wheel to allow the universe to surprise us with its magical serendipity, that we could never imagine with our silly human brains alone. Well, I don’t ride 10 foot waves in the ocean, but I feel them metaphysically all of the time, and here’s how I stand up on the board and allow it all to become a fun sport in universal alignment. 

Everything in my life is changing, ebbing, flowing at the moment, and yours is, too. There's not a single thing that's standing still. I prefer it that way -- I’m a hummingbird -- but it can be a lot. I feel that when you finally tune into your home frequency, and really learn how to live there, then suddenly you attract: people, moments, projects, etc., that reflect the same energy frequency you omit. So, I spent the last month fully focused on self-love, focusing on giving everything I need to myself. If you don’t do that, you’ll attract co-dependencies; put that shit in tha recycling. 

When you fully tune into your home frequency, your energy gets into alignment. Things start to happen and flow with ease. It makes things more fun — WAY MORE FUN.  You realize life doesn’t have to be so hard. When hard stuff happens, you’re able to stay free as a bird. 

Spirit animal of this Friday’s Love Letter, the canary. 
“Just like its name (songbird), the canary totem teaches the power of one’s voice. On contrary to this, if the canary is shown in a cage, it represents signs of sorrow, unhappiness and entrapment. As the canary is interpreted as happiness and joy, it gives you patience to enlighten yourself as well as others.” 

Ultimately, we’ll have to feel and process the things that cause us trauma, but if you follow this guideline then you’ll be able to make it through the stressful moment smooth and easy until you can get home, take a hot shower, and cry it out; or maybe journal about it over a glass of pinot gris and a hot, noodle soup in the corner of a zen ass Thai spot on Fairfax. 

LESSON OF THE WEEK FROM MY OWN LESSONS

I woke up Wednesday morning to my car missing. It had been towed away from my friend’s house in Marina del Rey. That wasn’t the most ideal way to begin the morning. I had a lot of plans that day, and the thought of dropping $400 on a tow situation is the opposite of exciting. 

I practiced a breathing exercise I learned from Davidji in his book, SECRETS OF MEDITATION. The exercise is called 16 Seconds to Clarity. I did this breathing exercise three times right there on the street. I was able to slow down my emotional fight-or-flight response called the reactive, or ego response (fight-or-flight is flesh threatening, and the reactive ego response kicks in when ego is challenged). 

“Fortunately, meditation offers a tool that helps reverse the impact that fight-or-flight and ego responses have on our minds and bodies. Meditation can unravel the cellular damage that stress has caused and alter our DNA hardwiring of the fight-or-flight response. Just a few years ago, a group of scientist - Elizabeth H. Blackburn, Carol W. Greider, and Jack W. Szostak - discovered that our chromosomes are protected by long, threadlike DNA molecules called telomeres, which carry our genes from one cell to the next. Their research also revealed the existence of an enzyme called telomerase, which lubricates and lengthens our telomeres. They won the Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovering that the length of each telomere and the amount of telomerase covering each one determines the very health of our cells as they are created. As lower levels of stress hormones are introduced into our system through daily mediation practice, damaged telomeres mend, and our immune function rises. Emotionally, we start to respond more intuitively and less reactively. In time, we will be moved from an existence of conditioned, limiting beliefs to a more unconditioned life of infinite possibilities.” — Davidji (Secrets of Mediation) 

In just a few moments, I was able to stop releasing stress hormones and chemicals in my brain by focusing on my breathing. I beat it to the punch. Then I was able to think clearly to myself: Okay, it is what it is. There is nothing I can do to change the situation now. I might as well take a little stroll to the sand, and figure it all out on my iphone with a cup of tea. Friend pulled through and helped me find my car. I arrived to the tow yard with pleasant, chill energy after having a lovely morning on the beach -- I wasn't going to let this event steal my day away from me completely. Pablo, the man at the desk helping me, knocked $100 of my towing bill, because I brought positive vibes into a space that's usually filled with heated negativity. Cool! Meditation my friends. Namaste. 

SIDE NOTE: When women are in sync with the moon it can make it so much more difficult to stay balanced. You have to work extra hard, but the good news is, your creative energy is extra amplified. My recommendation is to avoid alcohol on those days, do a lot of things that ground you (I'll literally mush my foot into the ground as hard as I can), and be reflective / in-tune / and detached at the same time. I mean ... I'll write like six pages of subconscious flow by hand in candle light, knowing that it's just my thoughts and feelings, and they're passing as quickly as my hand is moving across the paper. But then something cool will pop up from the process that'll inform my screenplay, or something, some good gem of clarity always comes from that type of release. P.S. A lot of art-therapists I know say it's their #1 ritual to get clear for the creative process. 

Ride the waves. The highs and lows, and lulls in between. That might be the hardest part of surfing the metaphysical reality of our existence. The lulls. LOL. Watch it all dissolve around you. Put a smile on your face and feel it in your toes. Seriously, let your toes feel a smile. Then keep on spreading love, because the vibrations of love exist at 528 Hz (528 Hz – The Love Frequency. According to Dr. Leonard Horowitz, 528 Hertz is a frequency that is central to the “musical mathematical matrix of creation.), and that’s as high as we get, y'all. 

 

Love, 

Alli

UNIFIED

We are the miracle of force and matter making itself over into imagination and will. Incredible. The Life Force experimenting with forms. You for one. Me for another. The Universe has shouted itself alive. We are one of the shouts. -- Ray Bradbury

 Jake P. Longstreth @JPL_Productions

Jake P. Longstreth @JPL_Productions

My friend told me to write about this, so I am. I love my friends. Thank you for your support. 

I’ve been writing screenplays for about six years, and I’ve never been able to tell the truth. I’ve always hidden behind some magical escapism in a world that has a wild rhythm, crazy characters, and an insanely twisted plot line that dips in and out of what’s realistically possible. But as I meditate every single day now, I can see clearly that my next challenge as a writer / life coach is to tell the truth.

The truth. It is immensely powerful, and can only be told well from being grounded. I’ve finally tailored my own grounding practice, and it makes all the difference to be able to launch into a flow-state at any given moment with a touch of a finger. When you’re in a flow-state things … are gracefully fluid. Your thoughts are lucid. You elevate to a higher state of consciousness. There are seven levels of consciousness, and I’ve been studying them all week. It’s fascinating. Anyways, what happened to me yesterday was ... fascinating

FIRST, let's talk about science for just a moment. 

There’s this thing called UNFIED FIELD THEORY, that was created by this guy named Albert Einstein. I studied this in my program, MentorPath designed by Dr. David Krueger. And essentially, UFT is an attempt to describe fundamental forces (strong, electromagnetic, weak and gravity) and how the universe behaves under the action of the fields that mediate interactions between separate objects. The Law of Attraction stems from both this theory, as well as neuroscience. My teacher, Dr. Krueger, explains below: 

“The Law of Attraction is based in neuroscience. Your mind is an energy feld and it responds to focus. Where you focus your attention creates brain connections. Quantum physics tells us that each of us generates energetic frequencies, or vibrations. We project energy in our emotions and thoughts that are the source of what and whom we attract, as well as the basis of our sense of well-being.

If you lay a nail and a paper clip side by side, nothing happens. When you take a magnet and stroke the nail several times from head to point, the nail itself becomes a magnet; it can then pick up the paper clip. Why? The molecules of the nail are aligned in the same direction, creating a magnetic feld. When all of you is going in the same direction—and focused—you have power.

The secret, rather than being about wishing for something and getting it, is about understanding and refocusing personal energy."

SIDE NOTE: This is what I do. I help unblock my clients' negative thought patterns, and clear their unhealthy feeling habits to make way for energetic expansion in their lives. I practice this every day and I'm getting better and better at it.

Focused back to yesterday morning. I woke up and couldn't get the Unified Field Theory out of my head (nerd), so I decided to set a clear intention of practicing it throughout my day. I meditated, and in my mediation I saw a friend of mine. We’ll call this friend Rachel.

Rachel and I are very in-tune energetically. She’s a theatrical agent at a big agency in Hollywood.  The first time she reached out to me was a few months after she’d seen me work. I was on top of a hill in Los Feliz meditating on letting go of acting. I was visualizing what it meant to fully let go of it (this thing I love so much) as a full-time profession, because it wasn’t giving me what I needed to grow at that time in my life. The second I came out of my meditation Rachel pinged me. She said, "I can’t get you out of my head. Are you available for a meeting next week, etc." We’ve stayed connected ever since.

{BACKSTORY: I took a year away from acting; I totally disconnected from it.  I went back to school and decided to make a big career shift.  But now that I'm on the other side of that transformation, there’s been something shifting in me again, asking me to not neglect my inner actress -- she worked hard for ten years to master the craft that’s made me who I am.  And the side effects of me realigning to my inner-actress has been very strange. I’ve had strangers stop me and ask me if I’m in a film they’ve seen,  I’ve had close friends and family bring it up, and I’ve had new acquaintances reminding me of that side of myself in very organic ways. So, with all that being said, acting has been on my mind heavily lately -- but not in a heavy way, in the lightest way I've ever experienced it so far. And it’s really beautiful to see it in a new light — a light of “Oh, I love this shit so much none of the bullshit I allowed to build on top of it matters or exists in this new space.”}

So, I see Rachel in my mediation and I message her. I’ll write this out in a screenplay for your visual pleasure. 

Alli texts Rachel.

    Alli

Hey babe! When you come home to walk Jessie (her dog) hit me up. I want to give you your birthday gift today. It's a month late and that's not cute.

    Rachel

I’m so sick ;( At home with the flu. 

    Alli

I’m so sorry! Let me know if you need anything! 

LATER THAT DAY 

Alli exits a commercial casting studio near her home. She’s walking down the sidewalk, talking on the phone with her cousin, Lauren. She starts walking towards Ralph’s grocery store. She enters Ralph’s, still talking. Everyone around her stares because she's talking too loud about very weird things.

Suddenly, she freezes in front of the pears.

    Alli 

Wait. Why did I come in here? HAHA I don't know what I'm doing. I just walked into Ralph's and have no idea why...Do I need sushi? 

Rachel appears before her. She's so cute and so sick. Alli hangs up the phone abruptly. She and Rachel Embrace.

Alli and Rachel link arms and spend the next half hour collecting healthy foods for Rachel’s sickly needs, talking about work and life -- a cosmic moment of crazy timing for both of them.

They walk down the street, still arm in arm as Rachel is dizzy and weak. They arrive to Rachel's house. Alli unpacks Rachel's groceries as Rachel sits down on the kitchen floor. Alli hands her a strange color liquid.  

Alli 

Keep chugging Pedialyte. I'll be right back. 

CUT TO:

Alli walks into her apartment, she grabs Rachel's birthday gift, a book.  She smiles to herself.

CUT TO:

Alli walks back into Rachel's apartment, gift in hand. 

Rachel opens it and reads the note on the inside of the cover. She looks up at Alli. They both get a little emotional. What they had just been talking about over their surprise lunch date has suddenly materialized and manifested into the message through this exchange of this book.    

Understanding and refocusing personal energy. There’s a mental act of attention that activates and holds in place brain circuitry (it starts to rewire) as the power of your focus selects the frequency (the channel) of your thoughts, the source of what we attract. Focusing on problems is the most common addiction. There’s a catharsis in telling an old tale, but it doesn’t last long. Just like the molecules realigning themselves on the nail, you become aligned with the polarity of what you focus on. When all of you is going in the same direction you have power. It won’t make cherries magically appear before you, but it will give you the energy to sustain the proceeds to create it. 

You don’t get what you want. You get what you focus on. Subconscious doesn’t register positive or negative, just focus. Unconscious mind doesn’t argue with you, but acts upon what you decree.  Which brings us back to Unified Field Theory one last time. The human mind and body are bundles of energy -- resonate space of energy bundles -- reacting to each other.  We get what we want when we shift to positive / solution based thinking (positive psychology), and then we become aligned to create that. The result is a strategic, goal-oriented mentality that connects us to our souls, our home frequencies, ourselves; being able to live in the flow freely and joyfully. 

ASK. BELIEVE. CREATE. Homework: Write down three things that put you in a positive state. Focus on those three things. Honor them.  New things can't come in until you fully appreciate what you've already been given. 

 

Thank you! Namaste.

FRIENDS WITH EX BOYFRIENDS 

unnamed.jpg

WOW. I love this question. I love the timing of this question. The universe is absolutely amazing.

“Have you found it to be difficult, or fairly easy to stay friends with your ex? And are you able to still be friends while dating other people, without getting jealous, or wanting to get back together?” 

I’m going to dive into this. Here we go. 

Boyfriends. I don’t have one at the moment. I have about half a dozen ex-boyfriends (I’m just rounding — who knows if it’s up or down). And I have a very different way of looking at my past loves today then I did before my life coaching program.

Okay, so, boys. Umm… I think boys are awesome. I grew up (still am) very close to my dad and brother, and all 25 of my brother’s best friends that practically lived at our house. They’re a completely different species from us. We are two totally different animals designed oppositely, biologically speaking. Yin and Yang. Men and women are thought of as being whole when put together, but whenever two individual organisms merge into one there is a complicated combination that occurs. 

Relationships. Are. Complicated. My best friend is a sex and relationship coach (Whitney Ullom, plugging you again!). To me this shit is the most fascinating of topics. Whitney and I actually spent three hours talking about relationships over lunch yesterday, and we were just hitting the tip of the iceberg. 

Like I said, I’m single at the moment, so I am thrilled to talk about this subject today, since I don’t feel like it’s so easy to do when you’re in a partnership. Interesting fact. Take note; for me at least. 

Protection. Relationships are so beautiful and they are a sense of protection. They’re glorious. Ugh, like, please tell me what’s better than falling in love?! NOTHING. You can’t say, “Better Than Sex Cake,” that’s not cool. It’s that energy! And the energy gets even crazier when you’re apart {INSERT YOUR VISUAL HERE}. The mystery of chemistry transmutes into magic as you’re pining vibrations inspire creativity, and all of your senses go into hyperdrive; it creates a space of presence that's a superpower, because you’re senses are heightened in attracting a new partner. We’re animals, it's nature. But as you get comfortable under the willow tree together, the tornado touches down asking you to go deep, deep, deep into yourself. Some of us aren’t willing to go there. And that’s okay. You must be whole when you come into a holy union, or else the tornado will take you down. I'll go deeper into that in a moment... 

My friend, coming back to answer your question now. I find it very difficult to stay friends with my ex-men, but the friendship will always be there. It’ll always be easy in some respect, because we know each other, we shaped each other. Here’s a quote that kills me a little bit in a good way. 

“How do you go back to being strangers after someone has seen your soul; but isn’t it funny that the only person who could feel an ocean away is someone who was close enough once to feel your breath.” — Kendall Hanna

I texted an ex’s mom on Mother’s Day last weekend. I guess it’s obvious that he and I are still friends if I voluntarily texted his mother that she’s awesome and did a great job. Another ex is the kind of person I can meet up with for coffee (once a year) and fully enjoy myself over a cappuccino, feeling very grounded after. Grounded in gratitude. Grounded in gratitude for being my best friend for a really long time. A lot of other ex-men I smile back on fondly. We taught each other massive amounts of soul-growth lessons that we either won or failed, but losing those games resulted in a consolation prize that has proven to be highly valuable in my retrospective rearview. Sunsests. Thank you for loving me. 

Which brings me to this... it could go either way. Seriously, I could JUST AS EASILY choose something else. Some other emotion, thought pattern, behavior, reality. I could make it really hard. But I don’t. I choose to think of it as easy. I want to respect and honor those wonderful souls I was drawn to, labeling them as friends instead of foes. I want all the best for you, men. Thank you. Namaste. 

BUT. I can’t be friends with them in the form of: hanging out in all our free time, calling him the second I’m insecure, or triggered by an upset. NO. I’m working on cultivating the friendship from a distance. Distance and space are vital for healing those hearts that got interconnected. You must become whole again. Healing takes time. Healing, to me, is loving oneself through the integration of polarities in our personalities; being able to give yourself everything you need — I saw that on a t-shirt at the airport last weekend. I highfived the qt wearing it. 

And to answer the last part of your question more specifically, “Can you stay friends without getting jealous, or wanting to get back together?” 

That’s what I’m talking about. You have to have space when you’re apart. You know what I mean? I think, once enough time and space has passed, and you're feeling protected in your own self-loving, then you can absolutely be friends. Get a beer once a month, touch base, send them a song, whatever. But you must first honor the distance.

Also, it's vital to set BOUNDARIES! You must know what’s healthy, and what’s not; what’s appropriate and what’s not. Know when you’re reaching out to fill a void in yourself, and when you’re reaching out to say hey, “I’m thankful I know you. This reminded me of you. Good times. Good life. Good luck.” 

If you aren’t together, then you broke up for a reason. There's a side of yourself that's begging to be seen, and healed, so it can be whole. Because when you’re whole, holy shit it’s so fucking great. Then true love can come, the kind that enhances you versus creating a codependency.  Codependency creates a cycle of a cyclone in the mind. It's not good.

Just say to yourself, and your ex-man, no hard feelings it didn’t work out. I’ll be on the lookout to have your back for the rest of time. Remember the fun times. The good times. Please only see the silver linings that came from it all. Now let go. Time to put your hand on your heart and ask how you can give to it. Keep moving forward. Blessings will flow. 

 

Adios,

FULL CIRCLE

Today I'm Writing to You From the Clouds

unnamed-1.jpg

I’ve been in Texas for the last seven days. That’s where I was born and raised, so I wanted to reconnect to my roots, and my tribe, for my 30th birthday. It was so grounding, and charging, and I got really clear about a lot of things. I had the most fun time with family, reconnected with old friends, and spent time with best friends. I got to experience a full-circle soul journey. It was like lightening-bolt magic in a bottle. 

And there's a lot I want to write about today, but for whatever reason, the only thing I could produce was a poem. At first, this really frustrated me, but instead of getting angry, I'm going to listen to my heart, and take it easy as I gently shift back into reality. There's a little trick I call, tuning into your home frequency, to receive deep soul messages of truth, but we can get more into that later. 

Ironically, a question I was asked this past week was about following through on short-term goals, that make us feel silly and insecure. So, it's actually perfect that I'm dealing with a creative block the size of Texas today. Hola, here we go. 

Here's my response to a beautiful soul's question in my coaching lesson for this week: FOLLOWING THROUGH ON SHORT-TERM GOALS. 

MY FRIEND, 

As a part of my new practice, and blending my strengths and experience as a writer, (which I've done professionally for about six years) I promised myself that I would finally start a blog. It's something I had wanted to do for a long time, and when I finished my coaching certification program, I committed to posting an essay every Friday. Today is Friday, and I did NOT want to write today. Every time I started to type it triggered frustration and insecurities. I wanted to blame it on a full week of celebratory activities, but instead I'm going to see it as an excellent opportunity to answer your question about following through on short term goals. 

Sometimes it's so easy, and creativity flows like honey. I LOVE THOSE DAYS, and I chant mantras of gratitude on repeat. And other times, like today, I'll have crazy blocks, think everything I'm doing is silly, and that it's all a waste of time. So, instead of giving up, and allowing those allusive little voices -- the ones that want us to give into our own self-suffering -- to take over, I'm going to fight back peacefully by writing a poem. This poem allowed me to process the feelings of ending a decade, and starting something new. It was a wild week in the wild, wild west. And if this is all I've got today, then hip hip hooray. 

And you ask me, what if nobody cares? Well, they might not. But may I invite you to shift your intention of writing to begin with? I am writing to process and learn from my own practice throughout the week, so even if I'm the only person that reads this, I had my own small victory today. I get to celebrate having taken a baby step forward despite fear and anxiety. They call actions like this EUSTRESS, or good stress, which is where you respond to a stressor, such as a challenge, with positive feelings because you feel it will bring you personal growth. 

Also, send me your work. I'll read it / watch it. As a life coach, holding space to celebrate wins --no matter how small -- makes my heart buzzy. And as I must practice what I preach in any capacity, here is my poem that helped me process my block today. I started writing this by turning off my phone, shutting my computer, and putting a pencil to a paper. Old school, healthy, human stuff. 

And since life is art and art is life, here's a reflection on my life over the past week as I experienced a cosmic shift that I felt while dancing under the mysterious lights of Marfa, TX; one week ago today on the fifth of May, was my 30th birthday.

Planet Marfa II Marfa, TX 

“THE LAST WEEK OF MY 20S” 

Landing with toes touching hot sand in an infinite desert

My third eye blinks, senses, pleasure, golden dirt 

Green tea, ceremonies, stretch it out, practice 

Full moon letting go, hands out like a cactus 

Adios to the last of my old addictions

Mona Lisa smiles because of the ease between frictions 

Rivers running wildly 

Howling at the moon mildly 

See the crescent in her eyes? 

The star’s energy rebalanced the compass 

Amnesia in pajamas, it blurs her compassion 

Breakthroughs coming through her reignited passion 

Smile for the photograph 

Buzzing bumble bee, the rose can’t help but laugh 

Giggling into expansiveness with very little expenditures 

Serendipity of the cinema’s strong female characters 

Hold on, let go, spring lamb, it’s the first of May 

A new decade for me, only five minutes away 

Chemistry drives rocket ships 

The hula girl shakes her hips

Starring longingly at a nobleman’s lips 

The silver and gold are not in his pockets

The money tree left it’s secrets in your locket 

The one you wear around your neck 

Close to you heart 

He loves you because you’re smart 

Hot showers, hot tea, hot piece of toast 

A radically golden era just hours away, and I mean it is the most—

Extraordinary life 

Tarot cards, tater tots, and champagne before a flight 

Flying, moving, dancing, look at the light 

The light within, tuning the violin 

To detoxify your body all you have to do is jump in 

She has a lot of pretty boys that she calls friends 

It only takes six glasses of pink wine to make amends 

With all the angels, demons, both telling you to change the lens

He lends advice 

Everything sorted out over a layover in Las Vegas 

Very good, just point your toe next time, like you’re posing for Degas

Got you, caught you, summer breeze rolling through 

The power was, and always will be, within you 

Tequila is from Jalisca, Mezcal is from Oaxca; I love this Mexican holiday. 

Oh yeah, and it also happens to be 30 years around the sun since my first birthday. 

Love yourself, then each other. Let's live our best lives. I look forward to hearing from you. 

With Love, 

Alli Caudle
