Sailing in new directions & saying ALOHA to Kauai’s first annual Yoga & Peace Festival + a note of gratitude for LOTUS!

Feeling excited today as I write these words tucked into a cozy corner of “New Moon” coffee shop in Nederland, CO. Why? Because this is the first ever blog post I am writing since quitting my part-time job to become 100% self-employed! The most recent SUPER NEW MOON ECLIPSE that happened on July 12th was without a doubt on of the most powerful new moons of my life. Yes, you heard that right folks, I am now 100% independent and self-employed by “Manifestation Media” as a Digital Marketing Consultant and Event Production Specialist. The truth? This has been 7 years in the making and in this moment I am freeing SO FREE. YAY!

It is important to note that the journey to this moment of freedom was not easy. It has come with a lot of sacrifices, but I could not be more happy in this moment and I want to take a second to THANK EVERYONE who has supported my vision over the last few years as my freelancing has transformed from a “side hustle” into a full-time grind. While there are many elements to this new undertaking that remain unknown, what I do know is that I AM GOING TO KAUAI this year to celebrate my 26th birthday and visit some of the people who have helped empower my transformation over these last few months.

One of the major CATALYST for this journey was Lotus Sattva’s “Deep Listening” training that I was graciously given a scholarship to back in April. The work Lotus is doing with her project’s WEsource.us and Quantum Muse is some of the most profound work I have come across in terms of personal growth and development. I highly recommend working with Lotus if you feel you are in need of more wholeness, validation, and LOVE in your life. Lotus and I connected almost immediately on a soul-level and what I pulled from the depths and to the surface shortly after meeting her was the need for MORE JOY & TO OPEN MY HEART TO MORE LOVE in my life. More love for myself, more love for the work I do in the world, and more love for the immediate environments I spend the majority of my time in.

Working with Lotus quickly evolved from the experience of Student-Teacher, to Friendship, to Co-Creating Leaders of the 1st annual ALOHA Kaua’i YOGA & PEACE Festival. Our connection was a little challenging at first because working in all of these realms at once was confusing and we both felt the pressure of TIME. When we met Lotus had plans in motion to make the move to Kauai and make it her permanent home. Immediately knowing that we had a deep connection and could help each other in many ways, but also understanding that our time together was limited we began working together on ALOHA Festival in Colorado. Lotus had not configured all the details of her move to Kauai at the time we met, and she faced some obstacles in the process of selling her home before she could embark on her journey to Kauai. Watching her overcome those obstacles and manifest her new life on an Island thousands of miles away from Colorado was nothing short of miraculous and totally inspiring.

While our time connecting and working together in Colorado was short, given how profoundly transformational it was, I feel Lotus is someone I will continue to work with for years to come. I want everyone on earth to know how amazing she is and say a big THANK YOU to the universe for the divine wisdom she holds and shares!!! She is honestly like the older sister I never had and it is SO WONDERFUL that I will have the opportunity to follow her to Kauai this September to help produce and attend the 1st ever ALOHA Festival. My wish is to continue the work of soul transformation with the “Deep Listening” Butterfly Magic she ignited in my heart the day we met back in April while I am in Kauai this September.

Not so strangely, the deep inner desire for more love and joy has helped facilitate the current “sailing in a new direction” theme for my life that has most recently included the ending of a live-in love relationship I had been in for almost 2 years, the resignation from a part-time job I had been at for 3 years, and the letting go of a number of other unhealthy life situations I hold nobody responsible for but myself. In this moment I do not feel even one ounce of fear, hate, anger, or any negative emotions of any kind. I have already FORGIVEN MYSELF and FORGIVEN OTHERS for everything. I sit today in a brand new space of true peace and inner knowing. Knowing that THIS IS MY CALLING & TIME TO EXPERIENCE KAUAI and all the medicine it has in store for me. Spirit has guided me in the understanding that everything will not only “OK” but it will be perfect, healing, and a divine unfolding of Manifestation Media Magic and LOVE.

Creating the website for ALOHA with Lotus is one of the projects I have been most recently inspired by and I am so proud to share this story and the links below today with my followers. The creation of social media graphic designs for this event has been some of the most FUN and PASSION FILLED work I have done in years. The entire team I get to work with for this event is one of the most supportive and loving groups of women in my life right now and I am truly grateful for this opportunity. FEELING FULL AND ABUNDANT WITH GRATITUDE!

Aloha, Mahalo, & Namaste to each of you today and always!

Manifestation Media’s SONIC BLOOM 2018 Festival Pro Tips + TOP 7 MUST SEE MUSIC ACTS + Full Festival Lineup & Schedule!

SO HYPED to say that there is less than 1 week until the 13th annual SONIC BLOOM! Finding & falling in love at, making friends, learning, growing, and working for SONIC BLOOM has absolutely been one of the greatest challenges yet most fulfilling joys in my life so far. 2018 will be my 6th year in a row at the festival and my second year as OFFICIAL PROMO TEAM STAFF! I will be at the festival creating the INSTAGRAM STORY for the weekend. Find me at the festival to get blasted on social media.

As a longtime festival goer, I have a nice list of what I am calling my “Festival Pro Tips” including a couple pieces of advice when it comes to surviving and THRIVING the SONIC BLOOM experience.

It is also important to note, that no matter how hard I attempt to prepare in the best possible way, each festival I go to is truly a unique adventure full of plenty of surprises that can usually neither be planned nor properly packed for in advance. So consider my tips a gentle nudge in the direction of success.

Ultimately how much fun you have a seems to have more to do with your attitude and your willingness to SURRENDER TO THE FLOW & GRACEFULLY BLOOM into each magical moment of the experience. 

 

MANIFESTATION MEDIA’S FESTIVAL PRO TIPS:

 

#1 – TAKE BUS TO SHOW!

Looking for the best way to get to the festival from the Denver area? Join the party on the way to the party. The Homies at BTS are doing rides from Denver’s Union Station directly to Hummingbird Ranch.

Save Gas. Save Lives. Save Earth. 

>>> GRAB A BUS TICKET HERE <<<

#2 – GRAB AN EARLY ENTRY PASS 

Arrive early on WEDNESDAY to get the best possible camping spot and settle into your space before the crowd hits to actually enjoy the first day of the festival. 

>>> GRAB AN EARLY ENTRY TICKET HERE <<< 

SB18-General-Meme-EarlyEntry.jpg

#3 – GO VIP 

Arrive early and get the best of the best in camping access, beverages, food, a merch package & MORE! 

>>> GRAB A VIP TICKET HERE <<<

#4 – VISIT THE OASIS BATH HOUSE 

Plan in advance to take a hot shower and maybe even get a massage before hitting the dance floor Saturday night. In my experience taking the time to refresh and take care of yourself is 100% WORTH IT. Step onto the dance floor feeling INVIGORATED and ready to DANCE ALL NIGHT! 

OASIS

#5 – DOWNLOAD THE FESTIVAL APP & PRINT MULTIPLE DAILY SCHEDULES AT HOME (Attached below) 

Keep one schedule at your camp and the other one in your bag or pocket for easy dance floor access. 

>>> DOWNLOAD APP HERE <<<

#6 – BRING A HEADLAMP/FLASHLIGHT + EXTRA BATTERIES

While the primary festival areas will be lighted by an amazing glow of magical art installations, stage lighting, and bright generator powered lighting, the porta potties and the late night/early morning walk back to your campsite could be dark and treacherous. The festival is held on a ranch in the “Rocky Mountains” therefore is rocky and rugged terrain. TAKE IT SLOW and BRING A FLASHLIGHT to avoid dangerous travel and scary potty situations. 

41g9UzrTzrL._SL500_AC_SS350_.jpg

#7 – BRING A REUSABLE WATER CONTAINER & DRINK LOTS OF WATER

Colorado’s hot and dry climate + high elevation is a recipe for dehydration if you are not fully aware of your water intake. Water is free and available at various locations throughout the festival site so take full advantage and drink as much as you can. If you are concerned about the quality of the water (as many are) consider grabbing a bottle with a filter built into it. Another idea to consider is to bring a refillable 1-5 gallon jug to keep back at camp so you don’t always have to go to the water stations for a refill. 

SB16_Merch_Water-Bottle_1.0.png

#8 – BRING QUALITY CAMPING AND OUTDOOR PROTECTION – DOUBLE CHECK ALL CAMPING GEAR BEFORE YOU ARRIVE.

Make sure you don’t forget things like stakes for your tent as high wind conditions may exist and you 100% DO NEED to fully stake down all tents. Camping gear that is in good shape, Sunblock + Aloe Vera Gel, Hats, Tarps, Raincoats, comfortable Sneakers AND/OR Boots, Sandals and so many more things should be considered when packing for a multiple-day adventure at Hummingbird Ranch.

 >>> REVIEW THIS CAMPING CHECKLIST OF IMPORTANT ITEMS TO BRING!<<

#9 – READ BOTH THE HEALTH & SAFETY TIPS AND THE FAQ’S ON SONIC BLOOM WEBSITE! 

#10 – FOLLOW THE RULES!

Everybody comes to SONIC BLOOM to have a great time, so do your part by following these simple guidelines to ensure your experience is as good as it possibly can be. KEY ITEMS HERE – NO GLASS, NO WEAPONS, & NO PETS!

#11 – BRING CASH & KEEP IT SAFE ON YOUR PERSON!

There will not be an ATM at the Box Office so you will need to be 100% prepared prior to arrival on site with your tickets. The ATM that does exist inside the festival is expensive and not always reliable in terms of being a great solution for getting cash. I highly recommend grabbing the cash you need prior to arrival and keeping it on your person.

#12- LEAVE YOUR PRIZED VALUABLES AT HOME & ONLY PACK IN & OUT WHAT YOU REALLY NEED!!!

I would NEVER RECOMMEND that you leave any type of valuables at your tent or campsite. Unfortunately every year people get robbed at the festival. It breaks my heart that people among us that would steal but the truth is the truth. Keep your campsite clean and tidy by only bringing what you really need to the festival. Keep expensive yet necessary items on your person and leave all other valuables locked in your car or at home. This year we also have LOCKERS available so if you don’t have a way to lock your stuff please consider this as a solution.

>>> RESERVE A LOCKER HERE <<<

MANIFESTATION MEDIA’S TOP SEVEN MUSIC ACTS TO SEE AT SONIC BLOOM 2018 

#1 – SONIC BLOOM ORCHESTRA

The SONIC BLOOM Orchestra is one of our favorite features each year! We can’t wait to see the magic that @dirtwire #Zilla@toubabkrewe@kaminanda and members of @sunsquabi@papadosio & MORE create together under the Colorado skies!

SUNDAY ON THE BLOOM STAGE 1-2AM

#2 – YAIMA

I am very excited to see one of my favorite groups in the world, Seattle based, Yaima, at this year’s bloom! This incredible medicine music duo has been amazing to heal too and watch transform over the last few years since I met them one night at Cervantes when they opened for The Human Experience. I am so elated they were finally booked for SONIC BLOOM. So much love to Pepper Proud for being an amazing friend and supporter of Manifestation Media over the last few years.

FRIDAY 8-9:15PM ON THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE

#3 – VIBESQUAD

Don’t miss VibeSquad’s ONLY COLORADO performance of 2018. After learning through his recent video post WHY HE STOPPED DOING VIBESQUAD I am incredibly inspired to support this longtime SONIC BLOOM artist as he continues to share his love for live music production exclusively with our community.

SATURDAY 8:15-9:30 ON THE BLOOM STAGE

#4 – Maddy O’Neal

A local Colorado “lady of the moment” this set is one of my MUST SEE’s as I have truly enjoyed watching Maddy’s career evolve past prior collaboration “Krooked Drivers” and I love her fresh solo sounds. Let this uplifting hip-hop infusion of oldskool tracks with light and lifted electronic beats surprise and delight you.

FRIDAY 9:30-10:45 ON THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE (right after YAIMA)

SB18-Talent-Meme-MaddyONeal

#5 – LIQUID STRANGER 

Are you ready to let the “Weird & Wonderful” sounds of liquid’s “freeform bass” rock your world? I know I sure am. This one may just be one of the most anticipated of the festival and as the Thursday night headliner, I anticipate that it should set a great tone for the rest of the weekend at Hummingbird Ranch.

THURSDAY 12:45-2AM ON THE BLOOM STAGE 

SB18-Talent-Meme-LiquidStranger (1)

#6 – DIGITAL ETHOS 

Have you guys listened to his Beat Lab Radio 127 SoundCloud mix? I have had this on repeat for like a year now so this one is purely based on hoping that his SONIC BLOOM set is similar in magic to this SoundCloud mix.

SUNDAY 8:15-9:15PM ON THE MEADOW STAGE 

SB18-Talent-Meme-DigitalEthos

#7 – JADE CICADA

I had the pleasure of meeting Jade Cicada & his management team in Nashville, TN last August as a muggy rain began to fall outside of the War Memorial Auditorium at the 1st ever “Deep Tropics” EDM festival that I worked as the VIP coordinator at. I remember talking to the crew about SONIC BLOOM and dreaming together that he would get to play at the festival this year. While I wasn’t “really” involved in his being booked for this year’s bloom I do feel like it was that rainy night in Nashville that we collectively put the idea out to the universe and hoped for him to make his debut at bloom this year, AND SO IT IS. THE MAGIC OF MANIFESTATION IS REAL! Just simply ASK the universe for what you want and watch the magic of manifestation unfold before your eyes.

FRIDAY 12-1:15AM ON THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE

SONIC BLOOM 2018 – Phase 1 Line-Up Announced + My BLOOM STAFF STORY + GET INVOLVED & MAKE AN IMPACT!

Feeling incredibly hyped to announce I will be working with some of the best in the industry to promote the 2018 SONIC BLOOM festival! Finding & falling in love, making friends, learning, growing, and working my ass off for #SONICBLOOM has been one of the greatest challenges yet most fulfilling joys in my life so far. This year will be my 6th time being present at the festival and my second year as official PROMO TEAM STAFF!

The first time I earned a ticket to SONIC BLOOM was in 2013, the very last year the festival was held at Shadows Ranch in Georgetown, Colorado. I applied to be on the street team that is managed by Jon Eisenberg aka Blackspy Marketing. Jon and I have worked together for years now and I have so much respect for what he does. If you want to join a killer street team and go to the best shows ever in exchange for promotion work, visit Blackspy Marketing.com & SIGN UP NOW. Jon is one of my favorite people in Colorado and he has helped me discover my passion and find my path. BIG LOVE JON!

ME AT SONIC BLOOM 2013 – THE 1ST YEAR I STREET TEAMED!

BEFORE, the 2013 festival in April 2013, I was INSPIRED to created THE SONIC BLOOM FESTIVAL COMMUNITY group on facebook. Facebook groups had just started to take off in popularity at that point and I guess I figured it would be a way to keep in touch the “few friends” I had met at the festival. Nearly six years and six thousand+ community group members later, I manifested the job of Social Media Strategist & Community Outreach Manager for the 2018 festival season. YAY! I LOVE MY JOB!

How did I EARN my SONIC BLOOM festival ticket in the years 2014 & 2015? I joined the STREET TEAM AND I HELPED BUILD & MANAGE the live glassblowing ART INSTALLATION at the festival. It was in these years that I earned the name” Glassy Mermaid”. I love glass art and got to blow glass live at the festival in the years I went as part of this art installation team. The live-glassblowing installation is one of the very best installations at SONIC BLOOM and is a MUST SEE!

LIVE GLASSBLOWING AT SONIC BLOOM 2015

In 2016, I was single & sad because my house had just burned down. Ironically, IT WAS NOT A GLASSBLOWING ACCIDENT. LOL! I knew I needed to GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY HEAD AND FOCUS ON BUILDING SOMETHING NEW. So I signed up as an unpaid volunteer and was placed in the production office because of my prior work in the office setting for ARISE Festival. At the time I lived with the Rainbow Lightning Children’s Village lead coordinator Taylor Martin and her partner DJ Rob Treaphort. I want to take this moment to say THANK YOU to Taylor & Rob for helping me heal from the tragedy of my house burning down and being my best festival friends in 2016 at SONIC BLOOM. You both helped me heal so much from the pain I was going through and rediscover my inner child.

Later that year in December 2016 I was added on Facebook and approached by the producer Jamie Janover. After sharing my extensive backstory and sharing how much the festival had changed my life, I was offered a paying gig on the festival social media promotion team. In 2017, I worked on the production team as a Social Media Strategist and consultant pre-festival and on-site during the event.  I loved creating the Instagram story and can’t wait to do an even better one this year.

My Costa Rican yogi story + Envision 2018 yoga lineup!

Getting excited!!! Just 65 DAYS! I leave the second week in February for another 15+ day adventure to the birthplace of many of my ancestors. I learned recently that while my name is very french my heritage is mostly Spanish & German. Many of my Spanish ancestors settled in Costa Rica and my great-grandfather was the bodyguard for the president at one point. Everything I have learned about my Costa Rican heritage has fascinated and excited me. Every juicy insight from the past draws my interest to this special country and its rich natural beauty.

🐒🦋🐢🐠🌴🌊🏄🏻‍♀️🎨🌋

As a kid, I grew up doing #Yoga in front of my TV with my mothers Rodney Yee cassette tapes! My favorite flavor of yoga practice is typically a vinyasa flow though I have done different forms like, yin-yoga and hatha yoga and enjoyed those as well. My practice isn’t competitive it’s internal and focused. It’s sacred but not religious for me. Yoga is something that I love doing for the sake of doing. I push myself every class & never worry about “looking good” doing it. Yoga means more to me every time I do it. I have enjoyed practicing all over the USA at some of the very best yoga festivals and events, there is absolutely nothing else like practicing yoga in the #jungle at Envision Festival! Pure soul-sweat magic!

CLOZEE HARMONY TOUR TO HIT COLORADO NEXT MONTH!

So happy to announce that one of my favorite artists in the world right now, Chloe, aka CloZee hits my beautiful home state of Colorado 4 TIMES NEXT MONTH! I had the lucky experience of running into CloZee at both the Sonic Bloom and ARISE Festivals last year. She generously gave me one of her “special limited edition” weirdly oversized hat pins and played some of the best live music I saw outdoors last summer. This year at Envision I was sitting in the Solo Bueno VIP lounge relaxing after a hard day at work running around the festival as an Intern when I said her name and BOOM she appeared right in front of my face almost instantly. This slightly magical experience reminded me how much more powerful we all are at Manifestation when we finally LET GO and let ourselves go into CHILL MODE. Sometimes it seems the best things happen to us when we sit back, relax, and enjoy life’s simple pleasures.

Get your tickets, grab your best friends, and immerse yourself into a soundscape unlike any other. CloZee is coming to Colorado 4 night THIS JULY. Details and a chance to win a pair of tix to either her Boulder or Denver shows below.

Week 1 – Notes from Class: Herbal Healing with Brigitte Mars

Excited to share today that I have been asked by my good friend and lifelong herbalist Brigitte Mars to attend her 10 week Herbal Healing Class in Boulder, CO! The class meets on Wednesday nights and yesterday was our first meeting of ten.

It is important to note that my passion for learning more about flowers, plants, and healing herbs was ignited early in my life inspired by several people: my mother, a longtime lover of gardening and all things purple/green and ALIVE. My friend Lauren Shultz  who truly is an inspired clinical herbalist and healing wonder woman. Lauren owns a wonderful company called Medicina Pachamama that sells flower and gem essences, teas, tinctures, and many other beautiful ritual remedies sourced ethically from around the world. AND of course Brigitte Mars who appeared to be “glowing rainbow” the first time I ever laid eyes on her at the very first annual ARISE Music Festival in August 2013. Brigitte’s wealth of knowledge comes from a lifetime of herb education started early by her grandmother. She described her grandmother as a woman who “made everything scratch” including soaps, medicines, and all other household necessities. Last night she told us she was kicked out of an all girls boarding school for hosting an herbal healing clinic out of her dorm room open to the other students. The boarding school has since awarded her a diploma (at age 60 LOL!) seeing as she is now a published author of several books and her writing and work has been featured in some MAJOR publications such as Huffington Post.

You may find yourself asking – WHY AM I BLOGGING NOTES I ALREADY TOOK FROM CLASS? The answer is that as much as I love a good notebook to take class notes in – this is the 21st Century! The archive search functions available through wordpress make the benefits of blogging SOME of my handwritten notes from class here worth the time it will take me to post them each week. So BOOM! NEW MANIFESTATION MEDIA BLOG CATEGORY ACTIVATED = HERBAL LOVE ❤
