My big Why

Author: taliaamour
August 25, 2019

my big why
There is often a hierarchy in sex work. Strippers, escorts, low end, high end, legal, tantra… on my journey I have gotten to experience many sides of the spectrum. What I have learned is that there is a time and a place for all experiences. A person’s rate does not equal their worth it expresses the demand for their time and business model. 

I learned that entertainment and play is just as valuable as teaching and coaching. I thoroughly enjoy both. We are healed through play as well as coaching and tantra. They are just different avenues to reach people. 

Over the last 10 years of coaching and entertaining, I have worked with mostly men and couples. I started out with tantra and sacred sexuality focusing on premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. I have helped men connect to get out of their heads(quiet thoughts) and into their bodies(feel sensations), harness and control their sexual energy and orgasm. I have helped them get to know women’s bodies and women’s sexual response. They have gained confidence and knowledge that helped them have more sex and importantly more satisfying sex. 

I have also allowed men to experience their sexual selves without judgment and shame. We have had a lot of fun and shared much pleasure! 

 Along the way many men have opened up to me about their concerns and fear around dealing with masculinity and understanding women in and out of the bedroom. 

In the wake of this me too movement there has been a rise in fear around masculine energy. It has been framed as toxic and detrimental. This has harmed men as well as women. 

We have a lack of sex education and communication about sexuality as a culture. The time has come to bring the conscious divine masculine to clarity and shatter the toxic masculine image! 

Women and men have been taught opposite messages around sexuality. It is time to unlearn these harmful ideas, attitudes and beliefs. 

Both men and women are ready to step into their divine right to experience connection, pleasure and fulfillment. I am here to help you on this journey. 

The feminine and masculine are intertwined. We can not have one without the other. When one is harmed, the other is harmed; when one is healed the other is healed. 

I offer a variety of ways to connect. I know that I am being of service no matter how I show up in your world. As a lover, friend or a teacher sometimes those lines are blurred and we get more from an experience that we expected. That is part of what I love about working with sexuality. It is such a deep multifaceted subject that has value in all expressions. I enjoy connecting with people, sharing energy in many ways.

So if you want to have a great escape and play email me to plan a date! If you want to learn advanced sex skills I can teach you that too! If you want to learn more about yourself and how to express yourself let me know! 

I am going on a 2 part retreat in Costa Rica. The first one focuses on advanced sex skills and the second one is about building my coaching business. I have been focusing on this lately to expand my reach to help more people. 

I am here for the journey not just a destination. When quality counts it’s Talia time! When you want an experience beyond the usual it’s Talia time! 

Find me in the Tampa Bay area, online or on tour.

Hello Lovers! 

I sent out a email using my email 

I do not check this email often so if you would like to connect be sure to use my

If you would like to be in my mailing list email me with your location and email to use. I am not one to email often as I hate getting too many emails for a source in a short amount of time! So annoying! I will be respectful and not email more than 1 a month and probably less often than that as I update my Twitter, website and blog often.  You may save my email to address book so it does not go to spam. I will not use explicit language or photos (I do add photos but they are tasteful, sexy and not nudes)  as I know you will be opening emails in various places. 

Here is a version of what I just sent out:
I am writing to let you know I have updated my website with some travel dates and want to personally reach out to you so we can set up a date in advance and have something to look forward to!

If you do not see your city let me know and I may be able to add it to the travel schedule (thinking Chicago, Boston)

I am accepting reservations for all cities. A deposit is required to reserve your time, I accept venmo, paypal, zelle and amazon gift cards for deposits.

Just let me know which is best and I will send you the correct email to use. 

I have not picked exact locations in these cities yet. I know some areas of the cities are easier to get to and have better parking than others 

Be the first to set date with deposit I will pick my location according to what is convenient for you!

In other news…

As you may have seen on my Twitter, I am doing some market research for a coaching program I am creating. I am looking for men over 30 who think their p0rn usage is negatively affecting their lives or who identify as addicted to p0rn, or think they may have a problem watching too much p0rn. I am looking for a few more people to interview- it is a 60-90 min interview (depending on your answers) over the phone using free conference call. If you fit this description and would like to help me with my research please email me at 

Other dates to be aware of:

Sept 4th is my birthday! I am accepting donations for my coaching mastermind program I am attending or check out my ‘what new’ page on my website, for other gift ideas or donation/charity ideas.

Sept 4-14 I will be on retreat in Costa Rica with my Coaching group and mentors learning more about pleasure and turn on…yes more ways to make our time together EPIC!!

Dec 4-8 I will be back in Denver
All other times in between I will be in the Tampa Bay area…Orlando, Sarasota and Clearwater are not far. Visit me at one of my tour cities or Fly me to you! 

Special options for consideration:

However, if you have followed me for the past 10 years, you know I have a specialty in Tantra and S<x Coaching. I have the unique ability to merge my education and coaching skills with my entertaining skills.

I have helped people over the last 10 years with the challenges listed above and even more! You get so much more from a real life experience rather than just intellectualizing it. If you are looking for more than just a good time let me know and I am happy to help you progress on your journey so you too can have the confidence and freedom to be yourself, knowing you will be accepted as you are.

10 Tips for New Clients

10 Tip for New Clients 

If you are new (or even if you are not)
Welcome to A Beautiful World where you are accepted and appreciated just for being you! Pleasure, connection and fantasy fulfillment await you!

Congratulations on finding your way to my blog! You are already a step ahead! 

Why you ask? 

Because you are officially doing research! 

Doing research is the best way to ensure that you are going to have a (mutually) safe and enjoyable experience.

So, you stumbled across some ads online and you were intrigued, curious and possibly aroused! 

You are not sure if any of this is real or some kind of setup. A lot of this just seems too good to be true! Often times, if it seems too good to be true it usually is- like most things in life…. However you may have stumbled upon something that is truly worth your efforts.

That means, it’s time to do some research to make sure that you’re not getting scammed, set up or put in an unsafe situation…and that you are going to have fun and leave satisfied! 

How do you do research on something that is not opening or honestly talked about?? and when there is so much misinformation out there?! 

here are some hot tips:

Read the add completely.

Go to the website 

Read website thoroughly 

Ask yourself: 

*Does this sound like the same person? 

*Do the pictures look like the same person?

      4. What other ads are out there for this person? Are they all consistent with each other and writing styles text pictures??? Providers often will have the names of the different sites they advertise on somewhere on their website.

NOTE: Keep in mind that there are some sites that are nothing but a waste of time and trash. They often copy and paste old advertisements on to their site and will even charge you to be able to read the information on their site. There is no way to tell if the information you are getting from these sites is true or not because the provider did not have any say or control over what is being said or written about them. So take what someone else posts about them with a grain of salt. 

If you are not sure whether or not the ad is actually theirs or if it is just a copy paste, consider asking the person whether or not they advertise on that site.

5. What social media do they offer? Blogs, twitter, fan sites? Make sure that all of that is consistent with their website and their ads. Chances are if you’re finding multiple platforms that are all consistent in the text and the pictures this person is going to be so they say they are. 

6. Contact the person the way they request- email? DM? phone? Form?
I personally use email only until verification is complete. Every person has different protocall- it will say on their site and added you have thoroughly read.

7. if their website and add does not say they are a licensed massage therapist do not email them asking for massage

** It has always been a felony to:

1 say that you’re a massage therapist 

2 you offer massage 

if you are not a licensed massage therapist! 

So for me anyone who even uses that word is an automatic NO since I am not a licensed massage therapist and I do not do massage.

You may use alternative words like: sensual touch, tantric touch, relaxation touch; asking if there is an option for a ‘massage-like environment’ or if they offer sessions where you can be on a massage table 

8. Be prepared to give verification information. Each person has different requirements for verification it will clearly state on their website and often in an auto-reply generated after your first email. I do have other blog posts about verification so in this post i will leave it at that.

9. Try to put all information into one email such as how you found that person what drew you to them, you can mention if you are new; but still provide all of the verification information requested. Remember to put in dates and times you are hoping to see that person as well as the location preferred and duration of date/session. You will usually get an auto reply read it thoroughly and if you have left out any information to auto reply request go ahead and send a follow-up email. Always remember that emails are emails not text messages- treat them as such.

10. Keep in mind that we are people just like you and we are running a business so we treat it as such. We plan our lives around our appointments so many require deposits to set the date. Most of all we I want you to enjoy your experience and be satisfied and fulfilled so you will return. 

I hope this post helps you in making a decision about who you would like to see and provides some comfort about taking this journey.

Crash course women’s arousal and pleasure

Author: taliaamour
May 30, 2019

women’s #arousal and #pleasure 
One of the greatest challenges in #relationships is

unskilled/uneducated/unaware lovers and #communication breakdown.

It is no surprise these can be major issues. Many of us had a lack of accurate sexual health information available growing up and even as adults. There is little to no research done on women’s sexual pleasure and pain. (please donate to No one ever teaches us communication skills, let alone communication skills about sexual needs and desires. 

Many women often say no sex is better than bad sex! Especially if they are having trouble experiencing orgasm with a partner, if they have asked for what they want and are not getting it or simply don’t know what to ask for or how to ask.

Here are a few tips and recommendations for creating a more satisfying experience for yourself and your partner.

Have a consent or exploration conversation before you dive into any sexual experience. (especially with a new partner)

Make sure that she feels comfortable to communicate with you- *hot tip: Frame the conversation- Say out loud- there are no judgment or expectations and nothing will be taken personally, this is all just information…and mean it!

Many women are willing to try different things as long as they feel safe and not ashamed or judged by/with their partner, trust is of utmost importance! 

Guys: Don’t act out the porn you just saw unless you have had a discussion about it first. Porn is not real life. Porn is not sex education, porn is entertainment – you don’t see the before, in between and after care – it is only the hi lites for your entertainment. Porn can be used in a healthy way. However be conscious: when it has become your main source of turn on, only way you learned about sex and or viewed compulsively it can greatly disturb arousal, strength of erection/erection consistency, sexual response and relationships with other people.

Idea- Perhaps you could watch porn together then talk about the way it makes you feel and discuss whether or not it’s something that you would like to try together.

Remember- in the heat of the moment yes’ can become no’s but no’s can not become yes’. 

  (Side note: Even with an escort it is best to find out what they are comfortable with when you start the date (not via email, many companions will don’t discuss specifics via email for safety reasons) Just because you are making a donation for their TIME doesn’t give you permission to treat them in a way that they feel is disrespectful or unpleasurable to them.)

*hot tip: how to start a conversation ? You could say 

I’m really into XYZ are you comfortable with that?’ 

‘I recently saw this type of play and I am interested in experimenting. 

How do you feel/what do you think about that? 

 Would you like to try it with me?’ 

Tell me if I am using too much or too little pressure…

Does xyz feel good to you? 

Would you like more pressure than this or less?

What are your boundaries as far as kink?

What do you find pleasurable? 

What is not pleasurable to you? 

A little bit of communication even if it feels awkward, can guarantee a more satisfying experience for you both. Keep in mind the more you have these conversations the more comfortable they will become.

Please do not be offended if your partner has not had an orgasm with you or their whole life.

Most women take orgasm to make the man feel better about himself/not to hurt his feelings. (Some men’s self esteem and ego is greatly intertwined in their sexual prowess. This is a harmful message men receive growing up that I believe needs to be dispelled as it is harmful to men and women alike) 

If a woman has never orgasmed remind them they deserve sexual pleasure and you are honored to help them experience that- at their own pace. 

*possibility: There may be a misconception of what an orgasm is. Keep in mind: what you see in porn is not always how a woman expresses orgasm. (I know I have had silent orgasms, laughing orgasms, intense loud orgasms, shaking orgasms). There is a full spectrum of orgasmic energy and it comes out in many different ways. Don’t limit her. Just because it doesn’t look like you think it should, does not mean that she did not experience orgasm. Porn is exaggerated and dramatic for your entertainment, it’s just like any movie where emotions and actions are dramatize in order to get the point across. 

*recommendation: video-becoming orgasmic. 

It can be helpful to see how other women look during an orgasm that is not staged. Some women feel like they look ugly or weird when they have that big O. 

Give her more time to become aroused before direct genital contact. 

Encourage self pleasure and to go longer with self pleasure.

Did you know: most women take anywhere from 20-40 min to become fully aroused. 

Challenges experiencing orgasm may result from having a conservative family upbringing. There may be shame and guilt around sexuality. Maybe there was no privacy to even explore themselves. They may even have old patterns of orgasm and masrurbation that are challenging to integrate into partner sex….have no judgments and do not shame them. 

Did you know: 80 to 90 %of women need clitoral stimulation to reach orgasm. 3 out of 4 women do not reach orgasm from penetrative sex alone. 

New techniques may need to be learned. 

*book recommendation: She Comes First

Sexalogical body work is an option depending on where you live and the laws. 

Betty Dodson is a great resource for women to become comfortable with/get to know their bodies and orgasm.

Trusting their partner is a large part of experiencing orgasm as well. Trust is built by little things through the day and overtime. Doing what you say you will (having integrity with your words and actions) about little things helps to build trust. Call when you say you will, ask her about something she thought was important she shared with you. Being on time. I know it sounds silly but if you have integrity with little things it shows you will have integrity with big things. That creates trust.

It takes courage to be vulnerable and release control. Learning to/allow yourself to let go and relax and experience is a huge deal! Again this comes from discussing boundaries and respecting/sticking to them. 

One mee hot tip for you- 

remove the pressure/expectations around having an orgasm or an ejaculation! Come into the moment and enjoy the connection. Fall in love with the journey along the way unattached to an end result. That is when magic happens.

What’s new ??

May 24, 2019

img 5324 Whats new ??img 5321 Whats new ??

hello lovers!

thank you for staying connected and checking out my blog. I have not been writing as much lately as I have been doing live Twitter updates lately. (check them out @talia_amour) You can stay connect via Twitter or check out my what’s new page on my website

The live videos are mostly random stream of consciousness stuff…what I am thinking about that day or something I experienced. I have enjoyed interacting with followers and being vulnerable with you. My intention is to let you get to know me as a person more before we meet and to stay connected to those of you I know. It is easy to post pretty pics and clever thoughts but I felt there would be value in letting you see me in different aspects of day to day living. We are more than the role we play or mask we wear. When I am authentic with you it allows you to be authentic with me…and trust me authenticity and vulnerability takes courage!

Most new people are unsure about making the investment in a date with someone new and I respect that. I have found when people take the time to do their research they are seldom disappointed in their choice. I have been at this about 10 years now and I have compassion for new providers and new clients. Starting out you simply don’t know what you don’t know. I also have found that each day I learn something new- the more I know the more I don’t know. 

I have simplified my website but know I still offer coaching to providers and clients. I started this journey focusing on sacred sexuality and tantra. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with many people along the way. I began to see the value and need for not only knowledge of spiritual sexuality but also for the companionship and entertainment aspects of sexuality as well. I have found most people just want to be valued and accepted as they are and it is a blessing to be able to meet people where they are at on their journey. 

I have continued my education in sexuality and expression and have come to a whole new level of experience. My ego has become smaller, I have no judgments of myself or others. I have also learned my boundaries and to value myself. I have learned to play more, be less serious and take nothing personal. I am reminded I am human, perfectly imperfect. I forgive myself and others. I am love. 

People often don’t see the spiritual aspects of sexuality however every experience is sacred, even when it is for fun and enjoyment. To feel whole and fulfilled in life we need to express all aspects of ourselves. There is a time for work, play and to be alone with ourselves. When we are missing a piece we experience frustration, emptiness and lack of purpose. 

We all have gifts, talents and purpose in this life. It is always a blessing and a pleasure to be part of your journey and allow you to be part of mine. 

I look forward to connecting with you in divine time. Goddess Blessings!

Real talk, trips to Greece…the forest vs the trees

Author: taliaamour
March 26, 2019

Real talk, trips to Greece…the forest vs the trees

Have you ever noticed that whatever mood you are in will determine the way you place meaning on an email or text message? If you are feeling inferior or superior it will affect your interpretation of what the other person has written. Text messaging and emails always set the stage for miscommunication of energy.

 Especially when I tell person something they don’t want to hear. All of a sudden they assume that I am offended, angry, upset and they assume that they are the one that has caused it. The fact of the matter is that these days it is extremely rare for me to allow someone to disrupt my peace by something that they have said. It has become obvious to me that when someone says ‘oh I didn’t mean to offend you’ or ‘make you upset or angry’ that subconsciously (or consciously), they knew that what they were saying was offencive, out of line or they intended it to be offencive and or they are experiencing guilt and shame for what they have asked or written.

Often times women and providers are expected to always be agreeable, play the submissive role, be scared that we’re going to hurt someone’s feelings or offend someone, apologize for everything, not have opinions, not tell you the truth….well guess what?

 I speak my truth and I say it with the intention of love and compassion. No judgments.

When someone misinterprets what I’m saying and tries to tell me that I am offended and upset and angry it really says more about them and their state of mind then it does mine.

For example I get emails asking about trips to Greece. Usually I just don’t answer those emails. However if someone has already made an appointment with me then starts asking I usually respond so there is no misunderstanding. That usually goes something like this “ I read on one of your ads that you do trips to Greece….”

I then have to explain that the site that says that- has stolen my information, written things about me that may or may not be true and refuses to take it down. Some sites that do this have the intention of putting information out there so girls feel expected to do whatever that site says they do so they don’t get a ‘bad rating’…. I do not “advertise on that site”

I explain that nowhere on my website, Blog, Twitter or ads ( that I have actually posted) do I advertise any kind of’ services.’ I always focus on creating an experience with someone.

 Communication during that experience is important so that both parties get the most out of their time together. Some guys are scared to communicate during a date. They don’t want to say what they like or don’t like they just expect us to be mind readers, maybe they have guilt or shame that prevents them from speaking their needs and desires??? There is no reason to be scared- guilt, shame, about yourself, especially with me I am very non-judgmental and open and honest.

My most important point is that:

what I do with one person I may not do with someone else. I never promise anything upfront especially when I have never met the person before.  

I do not do “services”. I am a companion that is paid for her time only- not a “service” ie- prostitution is sexual services for sale- that is not what I do. (I have done this when I worked in the brothel and it was great and a nice time but it is not my passion to hussle guys for services.) I enjoy spending time with people, building relationships…it is very individual, what we do with our time is up to us. The better connection we have the more there is to explore! 

In my opinion if you see something on a site that is inconsistent with every other site that you have seen about this person, maybe approach the subject as ‘do you advertise on this site? It says xyz and none of your other adds or websites say the same thing so I was wondering what is true?’ 

Many ladies openly advertise pse, trips to Greece and so forth…so if that is the only thing you are interested in see one of those ladies. 

I do think it is sad that guys fall for these sites that steal girls information and post things about them that aren’t true and refuse to take it down. It totally sucks that they’re being mislead- this is not a personal attack on the guys,( it is simply how I feel about that); it’s not a fault, it just is- until someone tells them otherwise they don’t know any different. 

Once I explain my position on the subject then they come back with the ‘ oh I’m sorry to upset you I don’t mean to offend you, don’t get angry’ 

Again- it’s their interpretation that is coloring my response. I simply state a fact and it is not what they want to hear, so all of a sudden they assume that I’m angry upset and offended- it is very interesting to me to see someone’s reaction when they are told something they don’t want to hear. Their reaction usually says a lot about their state of mind and where they’re at. 

So the real talk is consider your own State of Mind when reading emails and text messages. If you are unsure of the energy of someone’s email simply ask them- don’t always assume that you know what they’re feeling, especially when they have not given you that information themselves. Focus on building a relationship with a person so you can journey wherever you imagine! Don’t get so stuck in the trees that you miss the beauty of the forest.

Are you living to work or working to live?

Author: taliaamour
February 17, 2019

Are you living to work or working to live?
We are spiritual beings having a human experience. I believe we all have a path, life theme lessons we are here to learn, experiences we are here to have. Our choices determine how those manifest. 

Most of our lives we are taught to follow the crowd. Go to school, get a job makes lots of money and have a family. All that is well and good but we are not often taught to live our lives in peace and happiness. Our society tells us we need more stuff, have to out do our neibors, look a certain way, act a certain way; with no reguard to an individual’s authenticity. 

Going through life acquiring things we don’t need, doing things we don’t even feel connected to. We get older and start to ask what was it all for? Why? 

When are you going to start actually living not just going through the motions? 

What makes you happy? What gives you peace? There is often an area of our lives we have neglected, a space we feel a disconnection from. We start seeking things outside of ourselves to fill the void. Eventually we realize we are the ones we have been neglecting. If we don’t take the time to connect with ourselves and find out what is really going on, we will still be discontent. 

Stress is about thinking we are the only ones who can do for others and feeling a lack of connection to our spiritual selves. Worry is about not having acceptance for the way things are. There is a higher power that is here to guide and direct us on our path if we take the time to be present. You can call it by many names: God, Goddess, energy, universe, higher self, higher power….what ever you choose to call it is your decision. I believe we can all connect with this divine energy with in our selves, if we take the time to stop and be present, listen and watch for signs. 

I am a huge believer in the power of meditation. Quieting the mind and connecting with the body. It can be an active meditation or a still meditation…

The world teaches us to be in the mind constantly- it tells you you are what you do, you are your thoughts….I don’t believe that. We simply are. We do things and have thoughts but we are not those things. They are just part of the human experience. Our bodies are the vessel our spirit is inhabiting on this earth plane. Our bodies can communicate things our minds can not comprehend at the moment. The world programs the mind, it does not program the heart. 

Get out of your head and into your body! Breath circulates energy and pleasure through our body. Breath can influence the heart beat and quiet the mind. The more we practice being present and breathing the more our mind gets to take a break. It becomes easier over time with continued practice. Just start observing thoughts you don’t have to act on them or judge them simply see them as they are and let them go. Focus on breathing and connecting with body sensations with out labeling them. 

Consider what you have to be grateful for. What we focus on expands. What we are grateful for multiplies.

fitness questions 

I am often asked about my body ‘transformation’ The only transformation that has really occurred is that I built quite a bit of muscle over the last 5 years. So at this point it’s not like my body goes through ‘transformations’.

 I have always been very petite and lean. If I don’t lift heavy 5 days a week and eat 6 meals a day I lose weight.  

The only thing that gets ‘different’ is when I have a show coming up I get abnormally lean- I stayed under 10% body fat for 6 months this year! (I was down to 7% at leanest)

It’s an unnatural, unhealthy state for women to be even at 10% body fat- the average woman needs about 15% body fat for their hormones to function properly and not incur heart damage hair loss, bone density loss and many other health problems. Having 10% body fat and under makes me very vascular and defined- my muscle pops! It also makes me have less energy and I am constantly hungry! I have to really plan my days- and I do! I love to have my full energy when we meet and if I am not able to be at my best I will decline a date. 

(Advanced planning is the best all the time. I get to have something to look forward to and getting ready is part of my turn on. )

Every year I pick a few shows and diet down/lean out to prepare for the stage. It is a process to lean out (diet down/reduce body fat) and a process to restore body fat to healthy levels (reverse diet).

I often post unfiltered non photo shopped pictures on Twitter, my website and blog so you can get an accurate idea of what I currently look like. 

My natural state in ‘off season’ is around 14% body fat; which is an athlete level percent of body fat.

It always amazes me how many complements I get during my ‘off season’ my body is softer and smoother. In my off season I am not as strict about my carb intake and will eat stuff I bake or order dessert! You have to live a little and I would rather eat dessert than bread lol. 

I always train and eat my meals weather or not I have a show coming up- it is just a way of life. 

No matter what time of year it is I am always lean compared to ‘average’ people. My natural body type, commitment to training and food prepping shows. So please understand this is who I am and what I do. I don’t expect everyone else to do what I do. I am not concerned with what you do or why you don’t do what I do- it’s not my business to judge or compare. If you want to make changes in your life I will absolutely support you. Please do not feel self conscious or insecure just be yourself! I am here to accept you where you are at and as you are.

Arizona recap 1

I am currently in the Tampa Bay Area however I still have a few more posts about my travels…

Arizona recap  part one 2018
After driving around the east side of the US I had the privilege to visit AZ. I was home about 48hrs before I got on a plane to make the 4hr flight 

the trip out went very smooth, I even watched a boxing match on the plane with an older man beside me, he said he had not flown in over 20yrs! I bet he’s seen some changes in his life. 

I arrived at my hotel for the conference I was attending and got settled in to bed. 

I was attending the annual retreat of Ministries- an interfaith community I have been part of, officially since the beginning of the year. We are a church without walls accepting all faiths. I was so excited to meet the people I had met on our zoom sessions in person! My mentor and friend Eve Lynn was there too- she is the one that introduced me to the Ministries over 9yrs ago. I actually met her in AZ around that time. She and another mentor of mine, Shaman Kenneth Ray Stubbs were putting on a event there focused on spirituality and sexuality. That event helped to shape the course of my life from then on. I realized that Evelynn only lived 45min away from me in Florida! I started mentoring with her on sacred sexuality and tantra…the rest is history….

Evelyn ordained me as a minister in theMinistries this past September. During our retreat I got to participate in a ceremony confirming my ordination. it was so special to be with everyone in this sacred space. I even got to see a few women that I had participated in their ordination ceremony a few years back! 

The sense of community was so fulfilling. It can be challenging when everyone is scattered around the country, that is why the zoom sessions and this gathering was so important. We got to know each other more and share our thoughts and gifts with each other. It is a blessing to be part of a spiritual community like this! I even made new friends and found some new goals for the future! 

The biggest things I got out of this experience is confirmation I am exactly where I am supposed to be. I have a loving community that supports me. I have wise men and women in my life I can support and connect with on this spiritual path- I am not alone. 

Once the retreat was over I rented a car. Evelyn and I made the drive down to Tucson to see Ray Stubbs. It was a honor to be able to spend some time with both of them. We got to listen to some of the latest thoughts and ideas Ray was contemplating. We got to enjoy some healthy ‘ice cream’ together made by Rays caregiver, it was a special mix of cocoa, hemp milk, banana and a few other healthy ingredients, it was good!! I am so glad we had the privilege of making that visit. 

After a few house of visiting we made the drive back to Scottsdale where I had an airbnb. We went to dinner  (I had chicken parmigiana it was amazing!!)and called it a night as she had to be at the airport by 6am and I was driving.

I had some time to rest, cook and recharge for a couple days after the long weekend. I was so happy to prep some food! 

I got packed up and decided to head back towards Tucson. I noticed a really cool place between Pheionix and Tucson called Picacho Peak. I looked it up and decided to do some hiking. It is a state park you can actually camp at but I just stayed for the afternoon and hiked. I did one of the easy trails first. the landscape was so different that that of the east side I had been hiking the past month. Lots of cacti interesting bushes, insects and birds. I had built a little confidence on the easy hike and decided to try one that was more intermediate/advanced. I figured I can always turn around if it gets too crazy, after all I didn’t have my hiking shoes, just some old worn out cardio shoes. at first it wasn’t bad there were some cables to help you go up smooth or loose rock. The reviews warned the cables were hard on your hands and you needed gloves but I had no issue with them- maybe from lifting so much at the gym. It was fun to go up the mountain with the cables, every so often I would spot a little white arrow pointing me in the direction of the trail. I appreciated the direction, the landscape is so bare it’s hard to know what is the trail and what is not. I zig zaged up the mountain with ease getting higher and higher. I quickly realized I was more rock climbing than hiking. I got to the saddle and sat a bit filled with joy and surprise at accomplishment. I am not really one for heights so 4,000 feet up is a big deal for me! I noticed the trail went down and back up the opposite side of the mountain- all the way to the peak. I saw the rocks and was intimidated but there were some cables there and I figured what the hell? I can always turn around if it gets to be too much!

This part of the climb really pushed my boundaries! It was mostly rocks and very high up! I kept going back and forth in my mind ‘I’m a rock climber now’ to ‘ I am NOT a rock climber! I am a hiker! What the hell am I doing?!’ I was cracking myself up the whole time with this push and pull- my desire for adventure and my desire for the safety of what’s known. I got really high up! So high the cables were long gone and so was the trail! I could not find any white arrows either! it was just me and this mountain. The climb was challenging and once I stopped to look out at the landscape I realized- I have to get back down!!! I looked up at what was left and it wasn’t much but it was straight out rocks- big rocks! Where I was stopped was getting like gravel- very loose. I remembered reading the reviews of that part of the trail they all suggested that you have rock climbing gear and at that point I realized why. I again looked out over the horizon felt my stomach drop and decided I needed to get my ass back down that mountain! Looking terrified, I snapped a picture for the memory; I said ‘ God I’m going to go ahead and turn around now because I’m going to pray for something like Financial Freedom instead of praying to get rescued off the side of a mountain or pray to live through a fall off of the mountain!’ At that point, my mind was made up- I am NOT a rock climber I am a hiker! I literally crab walked down part of that mountain until I got two more solid footing. Those white arrows and cables we comforting to see! I finally made it back to the saddle and began the Journey Down The Other Side of the Mountain towards where I parked. It was nice at this point because the sun was on the other side of the mountain so I had a lot of shade on the way back. 

I was so proud of myself for getting out of my comfort zone while at the same time knowing my limits. I think if I want to rock climb in the future I will need shoes and some training, or at least a more experienced partner to climb with! As I mentioned I am not one for heights so ‘amature climber’ is an accomplishment in my books, I am very satisfied being hiker. 

I made it to Tucson and was ready to shower and rest! I have a friend from FL that moved to Tucson I was planning to see the next evening. I was really looking forward to that. The next day I was rested and I had a great visit with my friend! 

Ray Stubbs had given me some recommendations of some intense energetic places near Tucson. He told me about Kitt Peak Observatory on the Tohono O’odham reservation. I decided to make the drive south of Tucson on to the reservation and check out the observatory. It was a really neat drive through the desert onto the reservation. I quickly realized how close to the Mexico border I was there were border patrols everywhere even a checkpoint I had to go through. I saw the sign for the road up to the observatory the mountain looks intimidating I quickly realized I was going to be out of my comfort zone sooner than later. Again I’m not much for Heights or winding Mountain Roads for that matter I drove so slow up that mountain it was probably ridiculous. The views were amazing I stopped a few times to check it out and snap a few pictures I didn’t realize I was going over 7,000 feet up! I finally got to the parking area and decided to check out to get shot I happen to get there right as they were starting a tour of one of the telescopes. I decided to join the tour and see what the telescope was all about. I enjoy listening to the presentation about the observatory they have one of the largest collections of telescopes in the world. They said that different universities and groups were able to rent space on the Mountaintop and put their telescopes up there for research. 

The tour told us about some of the telescopes that were used to track meteors and other objects in space that could possibly collide with Earth. That sounded like a spaceforce to me lol.

We made our way over to the telescope that we would be touring. It was interesting to learn about how the telescopes were made, the technology used and the different parts of the telescopes. The one that we got to tour was actually in the process of being recreated. Evidently they lost some of their funding and an energy corporation decided to fund the telescope. They were in the process of putting in a new spectrometer that is going to be able to track and measure all of the dark energy in the universe back to the Big Bang. They want to understand how the universe is expanding so they will give all of the data collected after 5 years for them to interpret. I find it fascinating that there is so much of space that we actually can’t see. 

They took us to an observation deck and we were able to see the landscape for thousands of miles! On one side I could even see Picacho Peak in the distance! It was amazing to experience the view from that high up. Kitt Peak is a Sacred Space for the Tohono O’Oldham tribe and I could see why! I love Native American culture and tradition. 

The tour was about an hour and a half and there was a little time left over to revisit the gift shop. I bought a t-shirt and decided to make my way back down the mountain. I decided to continue driving onto the reservation I had seen on my hiking app that there were some interesting trails out there however the reviews warned that if you did not have an extra tire and 4 wheel drive you may not be able to access them. The route took me off the main road deep into the reservation. They were mostly dirt roads and I saw lots of wild cattle roaming about. There were houses out there that looked pretty disheveled. One side of me thought about the sacredness of the land in the history that goes along with it but the other part of me was saddened to see the level of poverty that lives today. The dirt roads became more Rocky and harder to drive so I decided to turn back around and head towards the city. I had to stop at the Border Patrol on the way back there were a lot of dogs out and I had noticed many cameras along the road there and back. It was a strange feeling to know that I was being watched and tracked as I was driving. The officers were polite and simply asked how my day was going I said it was good and they told me to go ahead and pass through. I guess because I don’t have any type of an accent and I have nothing in my car that would alert the dogs they figured that I was a citizen and kept it moving. I also wondered if they had some type of facial recognition going on and they knew that I had crossed through a few hours earlier and possibly even were able to check the license plate of my rental car and such. Overall stop took maybe three to five seconds it was just a strange experience that I had not had before…..
