Best purchase ever: earphones for iPhone. Less EMF waves near my brain. Such clear sound and hands free. Whoop whoop. #toolbox

When I feel like podcasting, it's magical. When I don't, it's a chore. So go with the flow and put myself in a magical place first. Then do the work that my heart sings to do. #perspectiveshift

OMG X leaving my life was the best thing ever!!! It encouraged Mainey and I to have nightly 10pm phone calls, deep sisterhood bonding, and all this was setting up the stage to reuniting in Bali. And her being there to stand as a stake for me to continue my Exquisite Freedom tour and for her to welcome me back to Bali after dad's funeral. Oh thank you X for leaving! I'm sooo grateful, beyond grateful you removed yourself from my life. It launched a 60+ country epic world journey! And you're welcome for all the learning I gave you when, in your words, you had no one else. I wish you love, I wish you maturation, I wish you grace, I wish you enlightenment. <3 #unfolding

After big session, sat on Kits beach to practice Somatic Experiencing tools and remembered my childhood dentist, who was as cold-hearted and cruel as the daycare fat bitch near my parents' restaurant. Big clunky tools, harsh traumatizing sounds and smells, no explanation of what's happening, no soothing voice or hand holding. Mom didn't know I was traumatized and how to comfort me and dad has no emotional attunement. And the trauma stayed trapped in my body for 28 years... <insert mournful ugly cry> And now, it's released, as I sit at the beach listening to man playing beautifully on public piano, watching the sun set. I want to remember this. What a release! What delicious freedom! #somatic #enlightenment

Alice in Wonderland Cafe [Tokyo], found you! OMG the seafood paella is delectable!!! I'm snorting my food, smelling its every aroma. What a rich life. Hehehe, the poor staff who have to listen to the Alice movie soundtrack, over and over, day in, day out. #enchantment

Mainey sending me an email, wishing I was single so we can run away and build rainbows and sprinkle magic on everyone we meet!
[Commentary: Little did we know that 5 months later we would be doing exactly that in Bali!]

Aww, oh wow, Mainey reconnected with me by text and we had a glorious chat. How deeply grateful I am to have the time and space for leisure and reconnection. She's amazing! Thank you, Universe,  for the sign that I haven't ruined any relationships by being me (being too much or being not enough).

It's so good to hear from external friend that I'm being judgmental. It reminds me to get grounded and re-centred in dancing in this moment.

Maria changed my life by stating that CTI is like her husband, a constant, predictable source of income. And it helped me realise that I am still settling to be like my mom and have my calling be a hobby, by relying on a man to provide for me. No more of that!!! I rise!

What?!? I got an email asking for some coaching from someone in Shanghai. My biz is going more global than I thought possible!!

First massage with Nathallee where nothing hurt. Went as preventative self-care, not post-trauma self-care. Wow, this is an epic moment I want to remember forever. How far I've come!!!

Staying with Monicah her  awesome apt in the Bronx. Bonny's loving hospitality, "feel free" he often said.

Huh. Maybe X is helping me re-learn to prioritise my relationship over work, just like I used to before Y scarred me. Turns out, I've always been right to prioritise relationship over work, it’s just that Y wasn't a worthy person to keep in my life and to prioritise. Oooh, I see. So maybe X is helping me return to me.

Gawd, I love gathering all tasks into one bundle and shboom, clearing them from my to-do list in on swift go!!! At this rate, I’ll only be working 2 days a week!!! #lifestyleentrepreneur

X asked if I'd meet closer to her. I said no. I need to be around my neighborhood. #empowerment #thelittlethings
[Commentary: My god, I can still remember and feel the orgasmic surge of power through my body when I said that very first no. In an ideal world, I'd be shooting out no's left, right and center. Maintaining my no's has been a great challenge for a woman conditioned to people please for her own survival. It's a practice and practice makes perfect.]

Women who are free will set the world free.

Freedom on!

xo, Ella
