Island of Lost Souls....The Awakening

It is said that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.....and that definitely holds true for me. I consider myself to be a spiritual person, not religious. One that is open to each and every thought and idea, does not condemn anyone,who believes there is good in all and who attracts certain people, resources and situations into her life at the right time in order for me to become aware of what it is I am to 'remember' in my soul.

For the May issue of Eden&Elle magazine, I had an interview planned with a woman who is a holistic sexuality practioner in the United States, but somehow energy drove me in a different direction and through a mutual acquaintance, I had the pleasure of personally meeting Kika Da Silva a couple of weeks ago.

Women are highly sensitive, intuitive creatures, generally more so than men yet sometimes almost frail due to lifes' challenges and lost loves. Contrary to what many men think, most women do not talk about their past, less positive experiences easily, preferring to hide them in the far corners of their mind, and forget them so the pain is less visible to themselves and others.

From the moment I met Kika D., as she is widely known, the emotional energy that radiated from her was quite irresistable, and I wanted to know more about the woman behind this energy. I asked her if she would be interested in posing for me for Eden&Elle magazine and have time to do an interview at short notice....she agreed with a resplendent smile on her face.

Four days later Kika D. was in front of my camera and microphone! Needless to say, both went extremely well.

Kika D. is an established photographer, author and producer of videoclips and short movies and has recently finished her latest project. It is a forty minute short film called 'Island of Lost Souls' and is based on her book Fé Noches Blancas as well as an emotionally heavy experience that Kika D. went through.

I was offered the opportunity to watch the movie to understand more fully what Kika D. meant when she describes it as an 'inner road' movie. During the entire film, I just sat there, my eyes glued to the screen, spellbound by the sheer cutting words, images and music that I was being exposed to.

Every emotion I had ever felt, whether it be painful or happy washed over me as the movie continued, the raw honesty swishing through my veins and leaving my heart beating with great vigor. It was truly an awakening to certain old school thinking and it captures the essence of life so very intensely.

I literally had to catch my breath when it was finished, yet was left with a hunger for more. Kika D. had already explained to me that she intends to make a few epilogues to the prologue of the movie, and for me I can hardly wait to see what she will create next.

If you would like to know more, please visit and of course, I urge you not to miss the May issue of Eden&Elle magazine in which Kika D. is featured, both visually and verbally.

Mission Impossible.....the thoughts we think

I presume you've all seen the movie. Tom Cruise AKA Ethan Hunt faces the task of a seeminlgy impossible mission but lives to tell the the tale. Even better, he gets to have 2 other impossible missions and he survives every time, be it with the necessary pain and scars to prove his daunting tasks!

What has this got to do with our non fiction lives you may wonder?

Sometimes we encounter such challenging situations that we feel it's impossible to overcome lifes' 'mission'. Recently a close friend of mine had one of these mission impossibles' end well for her.

She had called me for advice several months earlier on the matter.

Now I consider myself a pretty all round, intelligent woman so of course I had told her I would help. But there is one thing where advice is very difficult to give. It turns womens' lives upside down and inside out and that's......MEN! And as a single mom I wasn't sure I was the right person to turn to!

Women we are very resilient and inventive, we have to be, since most of the time our own families depend largely on us for the smooth running of their daily lives.

But when it comes to love, women are usually lost, naive and totally beyond reasoning.

My friend had met a man by sheer coincidence in a, for her, non comformative way, a few months ago. From the moment they met, they connected so intensely that they genuinely felt like they had known each other for years.

Few words were necessary for them to understand each other, their love for one another was deep and the sexual tension was almost unbearable (or so she said). You're probably thinking, good for them but so what?

The challenge was that she was moving out of state in the Spring. Her house had already been sold, her new home already furnished and awaiting her arrival and she had her heart set on her new surroundings, one of which she had dreamt about for a very long time. All her financial resources and ties were in her new home, not to mention that it would also be her sole source of income (she was opening a ranch resort) so not moving would have meant financial suicide.

But..he couldn't come with her as he had children he didn't want to leave behind nor would his ex wife let him take them with him. They were both torn apart by their love for each other and their love for what was going to separate them for good.

Which is were I came in. She wanted to know what I would do. My advice was very simple. If the two of them were truly meant to be together, the universe would find a way to make it happen as they desire. Even though to the both of them it was impossible to find a compromise or way for them to be together, I made them understand that they had the most powerful thing in their possession, namely their minds.

I told them to stop focussing on the thoughts of not being able to be together and begin thinking and acting like they were in a happy, committed lifelong relationship. This would, if they truly believed this, really owned those thoughts, stimulate the energy of the universe and it would give them a solution to this mission impossible.

In the beginning they felt like they were lieing to themselves, and I won't sugar coat the truth, it was very demanding and you really need to be persistant, even when the chips are down.

As days and weeks went by, and the time for her to move got closer, there still seemed no answer to their challenge. They felt as if nothing had changed, but it had, only they hadn't realized it.

Due to the thoughts they had both shared and the feelings (very important!) of happiness and trust that all would turn out in their best interests, their time together had been a joyful, loving one.

And it doesn't end there. Six days before her departure, her boyfriends ex wife was offered a job overseas and didn't want to take the children with her. She not only gave him permission to take his children with him, she gave him full legal custody.
(footnote: the children wanted to move with their father)

Motto of the story: There is no such thing as a Mission Impossible, if you truly desire a certain outcome, from the depths of your heart, the universe will make it happen for you. You have a choice, to believe or not to believe, that is the question!

a Jewel for Men AND Women!

When it comes to figuring out why women think, act and say the things they do, many men have given up or have lost their hair trying to find out. It's not that women are complicated human beings, it's that men are......well, sadly equipped to handle the type of intricacy that women are designed with.

This is especially so when it comes to sex.

Although most men know or at least have heard of the fact that women are "thinking" creatures and men are "doing" animals, it hasn't registered with them so far as to actually change their 'tactics' when approaching a women they are interested in. Nor have they been very successful in being able to understand their long time partners or spouses.

But the fault doesn't just lie with men. Women themselves are ingenious at making their lives and everything around them much more complicated than it really should be.

We pride ourselves on being able to multitask, having 'female' intuition (which we don't seem to use very often), being independent and the only sex than can bare children, so why make our lives so ambivalent?

If you have an answer, please.......let me know!

But in the mean time, for men and women who want the opposite sex to know how to get to know them, to be able to seduce them in the way they desire to be seduced, Jewel Feathers has written a book.

In Jewels' book, "How to make HER come!.....What Sex Type Is She?" she explains that there are three types of women when it comes to sexual pleasure. Each type is explained in detail, from what she wears, how she walks and talks to finding out what a certain type enjoys the most between the sheets (or anywhere else for that matter!)

This book isn't only aimed at men, though it is an extremely valuable tool for each and every one of them, be it young, old, inexperienced or 'advanced'. It's also for women, as after having read this book they will know exactly what kind of signals they are sending out to men, good and bad, and can adjust them if they feel the need to do so accordingly.

Now if that doesn't get your blood rushing to certain areas, the following certainly will!
