Hey Freedom Seekers!!! I've gotten feedback from my last blog, and it's been quite overwhelming to respond to you all, so please take this as a huge THANK YOU. I do want to be clear that I am no longer practicing massage work in any capacity. I now offer Sexual Alchemy and Freedom Coaching - a very strategic modality that helps you live life by design. You can find more information about my services here https://www.nicolespowell.com/workwithme.
I let everything go that no longer served me to live a life of total freedom and abundance. I am now traveling the world with my daughter; as a result, feeding my soul with only the things that bring me joy. It's a life that some can only dream of.
We started what I am calling our world tour in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. My girlfriend planned the trip wanting to take her daughter before school started, so we decided to tag along. My first mommy and me trip with another duo, and I enjoyed that part quite a bit. An opportunity to see another momma in her eliminate, her parenting style, and how she nurtures and cares for her baby it's a beautiful site to see. My girlfriend's daughter is 10, so definitely a different dynamic than me mothering a one-year-old. However, the work never stops.
We started our trip by having brunch at a local restaurant called Croissants Bistro & Bakery. It was awesome! The food was incredibly fresh and tasty, and they had great options for my little one. I had a yummy fruit salad and fruit smoothie with fried green tomatoes, and Penelope had a grilled cheese sandwich (of course, lol). After, we spent the remainder of our day on the beach. This was the first time Penelope had the opportunity to play in the sand. She's been to the beach many times but was too young for the sand (she'd put it in her mouth). Exhausted was an understatement. Traveling with a one-year-old is not for the faint of heart. She doesn't stop until she closes her eyes, so mommy was ready for her to lay that ass down. We went on a super cool speed boat ride the following day, and I enjoyed that the most. It was called the Sea Racer Dolphin Watch Tour in Little River, SC.
Penelope and I found a super cute juice bar called Loleo, it's a superfood cafe. I am a vegan/vegetarian and do my best to avoid processed foods, so finding fresh foods is a must. I had toast with peaches as the topping, with a housemade raw strawberry jam, which was to die for. We went back to this juice bar every day of our trip. The lack of diversity was the one major thing that turned me off about Myrtle Beach. I maybe saw a handful of blacks during my entire stay, and I didn't see any other ethnicities. I thrive in diverse, cultured environments, and this place lacked all of that. I didn't deal with any racism perse,' but I did feel the energy in the air. It felt like we took a time machine back into the 1920s and were staying on an old plantation with a beach, in all honesty. The beach was also not my favorite. I enjoy turquoise blue waters, where I can see my feet and the schools of fish swimming by. This water was grey and very murky. While still beautiful, it didn't give me a full body yes. I do my best only to immerse myself in environments and things that give me a full body yes from head to toe, and Myrtle Beach didn't do that for me.
Spending time with our friends and me hanging out with Penelope was the trip's highlight. Next, we will be in Austin, TX. Visiting my childhood friends and their family. Then I'm off to Tulum, Mexico, for a 9-day Sexual Alchemy retreat in the jungle. I'm super excited about this trip as it is my first trip alone this year. I try to plan my solo trip around my birthday. My birthday is September 1st; SHOUT OUT, MY VIRGOS!!! After I return from Tulum, we will prepare for our 30 stints in Merida, Mexico. It's a huge possibility that we stay full-time after 30 days, but we will first have to see how our bodies react to the environment. I chose Merida, Mexico, because of synchronicities. It first showed up via my mentor, he and his Goddess left the US a couple of years ago, and I'd been following their journey. Then I stumbled upon a travel vlogger who lives there, and lastly, when I was researching for inspiration regarding my travel vlog, I stumbled on a beautiful soul named Amoya Shante, who also lives there. So I researched and found that it's a beautiful town built on solid community values and love: a beautiful blue beach nearby and nanny services costing half of what I pay in the US. I'm excited to see how it goes, so please stay tuned!!!
