§ We came to this world to LIVE OUT LOUD!

The One Thing I Will Be Practicing All Summer

Jun 18, 2019


I am so excited for this summer! As I pack our luggage and wrap up daily life, I am giddy with anticipation of adventure!


Granted we live in Colombia near the equator so we don’t really have seasons but we are taking advantage of the kids’ “summer” break which coincides with the North American summer calendar to see friends and family, travel, play, learn and explore.

Here’s the rough itinerary: Bogota – Boston (see friends!) – Croatia (travel) – Pula, Croatia (learning and growing as a family in Mindvalley U) – Slovenia to Budapest (travel) – Bordeaux (family mindfulness week at Plum Village) – Dublin (a fun 24 hours!) – Boston (family and friends!) – Bogota.

I know that traveling like this as a family (with my husband and oldest daughter coming and going) isn’t for everyone, but I LOVE IT!

For me, nothing is better than hitting the road with my most beloved ones, having new adventures, meeting interesting people from all over the world and discovering our gorgeous and fascinating planet.

Now don’t get me wrong: as amazing as it is, it’s also work at times. First of all, I have to keep up with my business and clients while I’m on the road. I love what I do but it can be challenging to stay on top of things while traveling. Secondly, there are a lot of logistics to keep track of, kids fighting, tempers flaring as summer temperatures rise.

There’s not a lot of time for anything but the essentials of self-care. My work-outs and longer meditations go out the window. I get my exercise just walking around and living life and am lucky if I get a 5-minute meditation in.

However, the one thing I am determined to keep practicing this summer are the energy exercises I am learning in Jeffrey Allen’s Duality Program. I don’t usually recommend programs unless I personally experience them and think they are amazing and I can honestly say that this program is easy to implement and LIFE CHANGING. (And I’m not getting anything for recommending this program. Jeffrey doesn’t even know that I’m doing it. I just think that it’s amazing!)

I started practicing Jeffrey’s super simple energy exercises (grounding, clearing my mind, visualizing an energy ball clearing the path to my future goals, etc.) about a month ago and I am noticing that everything is just flowing smoother and easier in my life. Things fall into place effortlessly. My Extraordinary Life After 40 Summit is attracting more and more world-class experts who I just love connecting with. I feel way more inner peace and trust that I can let go of controlling all of the details and have much better results. And I feel more present and grounded in my life.

So that’s my commitment to myself this summer: to keep practicing these energy exercises no matter where I am or what I am doing.

And I’m declaring it publicly to make my commitment even stronger.

So, what about you? What’s the practice you want to take on this summer? Or winter, if you live down under?

As always, I love hearing from you so feel free to leave a comment below or get in touch at natalie@nataliematushenko.com.

Happy Tuesday!
