In this episode I’m joined again by one of the highest of high priestesses in my life and in the world, Shakta tantrika medicine woman oracle Erin Rivera Merriman. She graciously offers profound green witchy wisdom and insight into to the poorly understood complexities of natural family planning and the nature of birth. Drawing from a multidimensional array of information sources, she helps us to navigate the mystery school that is the sacred womb and yoni temple. We also discuss the often misunderstood iconography of Goddess Kali, and Erin offers a very well ordered interpretation of the fierce, loving, compassionate, and untamed wildness that is symbolized in her more gruesome depictions.
A tragic and disturbing incident was also mentioned in the conversation, our prayers go out to the victim of baby monitor hacking.
Yaya Erin Rivera Merriman is a Plant Spirit Medicine Practitioner, Ritualist, Goddess Scholar, Mother and Artist. Best known as the director of Active Culture Family, Erin walks a path of community stewardship and service to Gaia through her rolls as lead facilitator of the Medicine Mandala Green Magic Apprenticeship program, and as Priestess of Bridge Temple, a remote off-grid mystery school, healing sanctuary, culture farm, and library of earth magic located on sacred land in the Cleveland National Forest of San Diego, CA

Com and our journey together will begin eligible events welcome to times for fun podcast episode number 133 I’m being joined by dear beloved Aaron Rivera married men who has been on the show before as yeah the country Oracle are we talked a lot about what we introducing principles of shock to Tantra and then I’m kind of she’s very gracious to give me some insights about my personal Destiny and she’s the one to go to for that kind of very deep personal township-based advice and inside so that’s a plug for for the work you’re doing and also doing amazing work as in the form of active culture family which is his multi-dimensional collectives that’s really ceiling and cleaning up biology and Physiology and sexuality and sister Sisterhood in all things being an herbal in which he and it’s been a pleasure to know about that into a x b pillar of support to the best of my ability and yeah I can’t say it enough words of adoration and respect as for what for who I believed to be one of the highest of high priestesses walking the Earth today and certainly the the one holding that the portals open to Divine Dimensions that we need to be connecting with and paying attention to and also connecting with with Elders so really yeah with all that said Aaron would you please tell us that in your own words a bit about your background where you came from how you became to how you came to be such a glorious human being thank you van I feel I make good choices with my parents they were imperfect humans as is the nature of Being Human and they had a lot of trauma but they also managed to pass on a lot of late into ancestral gifts for Earth Magic and healing and so in the process of becoming a mother and doing my own healing work and having those kind of transformative life experiences I was able to actually open some of the ancestral gifts that maybe hadn’t been opened yet or jeans that had been switched off with able to work with epigenetic plants and switch some of those genetic potential is back on and so the early half of my life was Cinemarks by trauma and I’m sure anybody that knew me then would never want to take advice from mean how very very depressed Doss punk teenager and made a lot of really bad art that I’m sure I’ll have to karmically answer for at some point just like a lot of very ego based in fear based art and also I was able to find my way to plant medicine on my way to herbal medicine to yoga to cranial sacral & osteopathic Bodywork just what I realize I was doing now is frantically searching for how to reset my nervous system from trauma and that a lot of those modalities are more about providing comfort and you have to go pretty deep into them to get to the what tools does this tradition or that tradition have for trauma healing but most Traditions do you have those tools so I just had to get clear about what was I was actually doing on my healing journey and it was searching for proof that it was possible to recover or hue that it wasn’t just like you come down to earth and if you get traumatized then you’re just kind of fucked and you just wait around to die and get reset through reverse really showed this point on a journey that I have those tools and that I believed deeply in them I know that they work and so life has gotten a lot more interesting and a lot more fun as I’m seeing many people deeply resetting them self and so I’m at these days I kind of, my works that I’m a re birth Doula and I actually have studied a little bit at one point I thought I would become a end-of-life chaplain a death Doula at one point I thought I would become a midwife and I found myself in this more energetic realm of helping people to reset their nervous system and then you know how to navigate to World of a newborn baby that perhaps looks like they’re 35 or looks like they’re 40 and has a house or has kids has responsibilities but really is a newborn baby inside with a blank slate and an opportunity for a fresh start helping those people navigate to have the life they really came here to live yeah well that’s beautiful thank you so much for taking us on a journey and does that bring a baby into focus with agriculture family as your platform for engaging in enrolling and activating initiating and all that good stuff you won’t talk about the the history or the history of that project and what it says where people help people can access it thanks for asking active culture family the phrase I just kind of channel that one day and in my mind it looks something like a cross Colours add if you remember that brand cross colors from the 80s that was like baggy primary colored hip hop gear but I just got obsessed with the idea that intestinal bacteria was the answer to everything and that you know having these colonies these really diverse colonies of beneficial culture was the answer and in intestinal Health they will say that you you don’t it’s actually not that beneficial to try to kill bad bacteria in your body and make your body into a war zone that never feels good only thing you need to do is mind the ratio so we’re supposed to have eight beneficial bacteria or eight components of beneficial culture 2 2 harmful bacteria and as long as the ratio is 822 then all is right with the world all is right with the body all is right with the gut and so this idea of wanting to I was more identified with the visual art that I was making at that time so they said you just wanted to bring together the artist to speak to some of the principles of of what constitutes healing culture and to create and proliferate and disseminate healing culture in a more effective way to make sure that there was always enough you know I think everyone agrees that there’s a lot of dysfunctional information and teachings passed around through what we’re calling culture but I actually don’t call things like television and movies and whatever culture Society somebody introduced that word so people pass around a lot of dysfunctional things so that’s our too bad bacteria you know but they’re so much and they have such a fishing machines for Distributing it so I just really want to Rally the people who felt like we need to get to work like pumping out more positive culture and that started out in the form of just inviting artist to collaborate on limited edition projects and time-bound collaborations because I feel that that’s the main thing missing from the culture is the teaching us how to relate to one another so I was really inviting people to have experiences of mixing second chakra energy with mixing creative identities and the communication required to do that in a way where everyone feels good about it in the end happy about who contributed what and who made money from what part and what’s mine and what’s yours so little did I know that that was all training wheels for where my own Journey was going and that and it really wasn’t about the art and the the products that we were making together it was really about that process that there was my own Mystery School in my own training in sacred relationship and communication tools Next Level communication tools so through the the winds and Gain send through the mishaps of active culture family and that the areas where I didn’t get it right or we didn’t get it right I really learned I think I was training myself how to relate from the depths and really how to move Sexual Energy in a in a way that is good cuz our creativity in our sexuality and our emotions that’s all the second chakra so it was like a safe refueling way to start to approach relationship and sexuality where I didn’t even actually know that that’s what I was doing I just like let’s just learn how it is make collaborative art and how to work together toward a common goal and that that does continue to be the case is light is just more around The Healing Arts now and so the collaborative art that we mostly make now is community ceremony and group healing search for where everybody is bringing their gifts for their contribution that they’ve really cultivated but then it’s being orchestrated in a intelligent Way by you know the goddess and the nature spirits around Our intention for healing something really specific so it’s active culture family has started off really as like I want a platform to offer and distribute like to the world but it’s really become my own Hermitage in a way where I’m learning what I need to learn to grow on my journey as a spirit medicine person inside the container of this brand really amazing and I love really most of all that you’re taking on the task of creating a turd distributed workload responsibility Authority Administration for a process that’s going to honour honor people and you as the sort of founder and co-founder are kind of hedging against the potential for being narcissistic cold or really empire-building sole sole proprietor benefiting Enterprise yeah I’ve seen you in action with you or your partner is in inhaling and it’s a really beautiful thing in a really beautiful model so I applaud that I’m really so people can go to active culture family.com and you’re also your social media Links of very very 22nd on those platforms as well yes typically yes I actually doing something really unique right now for myself is I’m taking a month off of social media I have never done that before I posted once a day for about 6 years and just you know going into that deep reset that I so believe in that I think is be the basis of regenerative culture is that we need deep total resets regularly and cyclically yeah but I’ll be back in three weeks with lots of fun free content the number is new single or co-parenting mother’s in my life who are at that critical time of Williamson County Stewardship wound care and so many mysterious modalities of best practices that are our way out of my wheelhouse and I realize that it’s my it’s my duty to have really put something down on the podcast that’s at least a general kind of best practices or checklist even just a short form of it that can expand into focusing on a more specific topic zooming in more later but at least having their via you know a a basic reference and so the two kind of main topics would be the natural Family Planning strategies that something that is sort of thing coming up for people who are in new relationships that want to see what their options are and and get some insight on that and then and then if we can if we can get you some of that then we can go into hopefully some really at least the the list of things to to to strictly avoid it cuz there’s so many things you can do right but just you know the list of things that you wrong that you could do wrong there critic or probably the most important to just sort of triage that the process of a little bit it four times sake but yeah is that sound good and if so we’ll start with the the natural Family Planning message yes Steven more specific question to a kazoo they’re all here in a large. I got to go out myself for my ignorance around this I’ve had a vasectomy for over 10 years so I I’m not a hundred percent exempt from this stuff I still have to be not to be responsible and careful and in certain ways but for most other people out there who are having male body than female body intercourse where fertility is is pretty much a given then there’s the number of options that kind of scale from most invasive and most kind of sun guaranteed being obviously sterilization through to dying or mastectomy and then less invasive and less permanent forms of physical devices installed into a female bodies at various locations at various side effects and time frames in the nurse chemical or hormonal implements and and then there’s a more behavioral approach which involves knowing a woman’s in a woman during her cycle and doing mucus testing and that whole elaborate process and also also herbal are morning after pills if you will that did this sort of the am I am I on the right path with the sort of breakdown is the scale of things I like to do just imagining that if in fact you have listeners who are interested in the subject that they probably have partial information and then they have opinions and so I like to kind of share where my opinion comes from what the basis of my opinion is so from the wise woman tradition as my first series of initiations as a green witch and the voice of the wise woman tradition is really gained her Authority through writing a very popular book possibly even in the 70s called wise woman herbal for the childbearing year Souza book that helped a lot of women have more empowered experience of pregnancy and birth through the green realm and so that is why people ask her questions about women’s health rotavirus study woman’s house with her and people would call into her hotline and they would ask questions about what’s the best form of birth control is important to understand the wise woman tradition in my opinion it’s green Tantra it’s a non-dual tradition of Earth Magic and what that means is that they don’t tell you what to do in a set of moralistic system that says this is the right thing to do in the right way to do it so one of the principles of the Wireman tradition is the six steps of healing and Sub-Zero is do nothing instead of 6 is have surgery so between those poles it basically a firm’s any option that you could possibly age but it’s also they are putting them in order in a sense of you recommending that if you have an issue or a health question or problem that you don’t go straight to step 6 Western medicine is basically straight to step 6 which is titled it’s not titled have surgery is still break and Enter so the idea there’s something wrong with my body will we’re going to break and Enter and we’re going to put something in there or take something out so people expect when they call her and they say what do what do what’s the most to Wise Women form of birth control they say they are hoping I think for some magical concoction of plants is she actually recommends birth control pills and the reason is because people ask what’s the most natural form of birth control as she says the most natural thing is having 17 children even one or two or three children knows that how much that starts to deteriorate the tone of your your pelvic floor and it takes time in between to get that tone so if you think about someone who had 17 children in a row which is very common basically you would have whoever had the most children in an indigenous Village would become the Midwife that was hacked Muhammad wife that if you think about that as a sovereign created woman who might have other contributions to make to the planet besides having children like myself that makes me ill it makes my skin crawl to imagine like coming to Earth and just being completely sidelined by serving the survival of the species and so her point is that it wasn’t until hormonal birth control that women could choose women could make a choice and you know I’m sure there’s plenty of indigenous cultures where that were super respectful but there’s also plenty there or very root chakra based and marriage was some kind of sanctioned rape process or perhaps it wasn’t in the beginning but it became a somewhere along the way they’re only by my grandmother’s time marriage just met hey we’re going to we’re going to give you to that dude and he can just have sex with you whenever he wants and you’ll just before this year so last year I basically you work as an independent consultant for small Brands and startups in big Brands and technology for rebranding their whole the whole strategies basically can I learn so much you know and then here I am doing the same exact thing that I was doing when I was a free spirit and her kissed living Barefoot traveling the world and so it’s really funny inside the Science Kid full circle where now I’m here making music and painting murals but now is so much more aligned and with more resources and energy directed in a way that is that is just more useful for everybody so I hope to continue learning and I feel very thankful to be in connection with the people that you know that I have been meeting the whole crypto art murals is for me away to you know as a writer at hard and as a writer as a trade putting out content in a written way is really useful but it doesn’t reach everybody if you don’t have internet and you don’t know how to read you’re not going to get this information and so painting a mural in a community where the art is available to everybody and you can just stand in front of it and be curious feel sad feel happy feel whatever it is and ignite your curiosity for your own research that is insanely powerful and I know that because I have cried in front of murals I have taken pictures in front of murals at that made me realize something about myself and that is one aspect right off the bat the massive big scale Arts that can that can provide a message for an entire community and then the other aspect is supporting these artists you know myself and then everybody else who I see struggling so much to do what they love and they’re so good at it and and discipline of wealth in the right hands is an opportunity for us to fill up every single block of the chain you note for the artist to paint if that’s what they want to do the visual artist want a fan or the r just want to make music or the artist who wants you to create experiences that are interactive and then for the people who are good at managing and just love discovering and helping and connecting to do just that and do not have to do all the other things and for the web developers to develop their websites and I see just amongst my own friends and connections here how much energy and time we’re wasting by not working together and so the more people I meet in the blockchain crypto or are crypto blockchain connection space the more I want to all of us to do our shows and commercials together because it makes no sense for everybody to be spending their energy resources in in building a website if you hate building a website you know like if you want to paint just paint and then we’ll find people to build a website for you and and I encountered a lot of people fear based in space who are all about competition and want to do their Niche and they don’t want anything to do with other brands and then I encourage I mean I’ve encountered so many more people on the collaborative side and that’s anarchapulco that’s where it what I felt that America begun what I felt like ripping psychedelic people were down to connect and they said yes to all the projects and let’s get on a phone call and it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from if you want to help and it aligns let’s do it you know and that is really refreshing and I think that’s the the Psychedelic or open-minded or meditation more expensive way of looking at this movement awesome God do you want to talk more about just practicing meditation and what sort of how your your spiritual processes and if he tips you have for people who are coming into here wanting to participate in this technology space and an actually starting to you know they say the first time you start to have some actual games in your cryptocurrency portfolio than I can say from experience I just want to give my life to the movement because it’s changed my life so much and I want to just be a service but I’m not a coder and I’m not really I’m kind of a wannabe geek so imagine making this cultural Ambassador you know doing that like if we were talking about him in franchising people you have said yes to Justin tips about what it’s like to be adapting to this new that mean you’re providing a platform for people to express themselves in your finding people like me who you know I’m nobody in this world and at the same time I very I feel like I’m a very important piece of the puzzle and I haven’t always felt that way my own SoCal you wasn’t where it’s at and I you know I need the others and you need the others and so you already doing so much and I really appreciate you reaching out and wanting to give a voice to people like me who maybe you’re not on the you know I feel like I’m behind the scenes a lot and now you can’t necessarily reach out to to you know I don’t know bigger a larger what it’s called platforms and say Authority terribly I need to speak on this or be on a panel specifically and yet at the same time so many opportunities like this have presented themselves to me like being on humans of Bitcoin or the libertarian Radio free talk live or your show and so many others and so it’s it’s such a beautiful synchronous synchronicity how we all find each other and I’m being hard open to supporting each other and that’s what it’s all about so to me when people ask me what is a blockchain artist what makes you a crypto artist or what how can I get involved in this way if I don’t have any coding skills or if I don’t have any if I don’t feel like a nerd at hard or any or if I don’t have any connection the truth is that most of the people that are even curious about this movement or that believe in Freedom are already a part of this movement you know what I mean and it’s just lack of Education or lack of information and lack of system or container though it’s being created right now and so anything that you care about and if you respect freedom and the evolution of humankind through compassion and love that is blockchain with me and I know it sounds really extreme for some people but it’s really is I mean if your yoga teacher you can download and secure whatever wallet of your choice I love Edge they you know they just upgraded to their shape-shifting converting application which I didn’t have before and I just downloaded it and it’s my favorite wallets I always recommend that you use in a hot while they’re on your phone you can just download something like that in three seconds and all of a sudden your yoga teacher who takes crypto you know what I mean it in Seoul I’m in this is what I do at my my events like that we have the exist festival.com for South by Southwest and is not an official South by event is a disruptive one because even though I love songs by and I painted a giant mural for South by that’s going to be showing at the Expo Center for Austin Rodeo I love what they’re doing so many ways they’ve also turn down quite a few female speakers for the blockchain panel and I don’t know enough about what they’re doing and I’m sure there’s reasons why everybody dusted the things I do but I think it’s important to set up other events are outside of the you know of the gates of South by in the rules and so on so that’s what we do at our events you know we set up a men’s where where we can bring in a bunch of artists who have never heard of a crypto before or who are interested in it and teach him how to download a wallet and then make their sales are there vending whatever they’re running t-shirts and arts and whatever in crypto in there you got like that’s all it takes so when I get on an Uber or Lyft or Rideshare I asked them if they take crypto and they look at me like I’m crazy then I showed them how to download the wallet and then I took them in crypto and when I go to any any local shop or any restaurant I just automatically always ask do you take pepto and they just look at me confused and then they ask and then I tell them and so it’s just word of mouth and that’s it very small way in which and how we can educate each other just ask about it as if it’s part of your normal life because to me and to you it is you know and so the more people we have on the system to better that easier we’re all going to to evolve within this I don’t know if the answer is exactly the question who want to just be ya be a part of the movement and and adapt and actually alter reality one day at a time just with whatever means you have you know yeah that’s exciting is that you know I’ve had I’ve had a similar kind of weather journey of just wanting to onboard friends and just get people excited about it and really the best way to do it is just to get them started with some in just a few or I’m going to split the mule and give you your you know percentage of Crypt or whatever and and that just gets that gets the party started for for anybody and I see why you’re talking I was imagining they’re being a i y bet there’s got to be some art galleries in the world that just give what is QR codes on every piece so in case you don’t want to buy it you can just tip the artist while you’re there be a white of all the art that I’m so like thrilled to behold in my eyes when I go to an art gallery I would go in there with a budget to tip all the all the artist that I thought really blew my mind you know that’s a whole number and thank you for saying that because I seriously have been wanting to make a video on this for so long thank you for reminding me I want I want all the spray paint artist mural is due to get a QR code stencil and so many times that I’ve been moved by a mural and I yeah you can buy it and you can buy a piece by the artist I’m just freaking said man like $1 a hundred people $1 and then you go home and the artist girl out in the world like how insanely amazing about education if nobody told me that I could do better if I wasn’t a part of this movement I would not have either. So yes I think every Gallery should have a key or code next to their pieces for sure and hopefully work making it easier and easier to have these things be more accessible and just like you said you know split a meal and pay in in crypto just like you would do with venmo or PayPal is very easy and another thing that I think is important to mention is that at first when Bitcoin came out in the early adopters now that Bitcoin was more like a Welsh holding system and still now you know it’s people assume that that you have to have a lot of money to get into crypto but I love the people at and dash dash people talked about this a lot and then cash and Litecoin you don’t fast transaction this is a system that I believe in I’m so tired of using Banks and I’m so tired of using Fiat I don’t want it anymore so I don’t actually hold its on a crypto I’m not at a point where my Abundant Life reflects in my in my wallet but I do get to use crypto every day to do my everyday things and every time a little more and so even if you just want to download a wallet and put 10 bucks into either or 10 bucks into like going or Dash or whatever your favorite currency is just put it there and do nothing with it and check it again in a month and see what happens or just how about you don’t have something like $100 and whenever you go do something if they take crypto you can transfer that and just start really small it’s it’s such a mountain of information that I can be very overwhelming I sign up for a steaming a couple a couple weeks ago and I’ve heard about steemit for for those of you who don’t know it’s a platform like it has all these different channels you can blog writing you can put up videos it’s basically a decent realized turn off all the social media that we use today so right now if you comment on YouTube or Facebook or Twitter or Instagram you don’t get paid for your value and reviewing people’s content but on steemit you basically get rewarded for being an active member of the community you get paid for voting for curating and you can receive a lot of steam power and crypto money basically for producing good content that is useful to people and it cannot be tamed innocence other than by the users and the population and so it’s a really amazing system in everyone’s use it for a long time but I was kind of intimidating by it finally I made an account into two and a half weeks to clear which is insane and and I’ve been getting super overwhelmed with learning how to use it and I just try to continue to watch one video day and do little things at a time and in no time I’ll be an expert you know that’s all it takes so just I hope that people don’t get over Round And if you’re curious just continue learning just a little bit at a time you don’t have to be an expert overnight exactly. I’m glad yes team is amazing and probably going to totally crush it on there just is it doing writing published his stuff it’s been specially in the crypto space is people that it’s amazing some of the mounts you can get off of that and it shows you how big data is really extracting so much value from users of platforms and it’s it’s it’s not going to be long before just because it’s free means that you just give them all your data and sign away the property rights and all that stuff is is going to be replaced by this micropayment ecosystems where people can support each other you know value in the content that they consume and and being really well well supported in and I think it’s going to do the asking to do a lot of amazing some of her friends yesterday we were talking about all them you know thousands of jobs disappearing as robots take over and Singularity and all the stuff and at some point in my life I was really concerned about this you know yet where are aliens off drivers truck drivers going to go when we have also if driving cars do you know all the stuff but the answer is blanching all these people will be doing things in blockchain I will be getting paid well for it and it’ll take less time and I mean from the Tim Ferriss 4-Hour Work Week on and everything. Having high developments off technology and be more efficient with our time does not mean that we is not does not need to be scary you know there’s a lot of stuff within fast Evolution that is that is concerning to me specially how fast were developing and growing and how our security initiatives are not all the party yet and I think we’re getting there so there’s a lot of concern of course but anyting however I don’t think that we all really grasp or we’re starting to now how how much we really don’t have to work 90 hours a week or whatever the ridiculous things we do you know that the whole point of this is that micro payments and micro contributions from everybody involved will react what time for us to to be humans to exist to just let me know this is such an interesting new development in the sort of f have that imprint of a techno dystopia since childhood from all the Sci-Fi and I watched it and then you know you imagine this world where humans are made up sleep by robotic technology and Ai and I’ve been pretty sure that those prospects especially now is drones of coming to the picture and now I really feel like it as of this moment this kind of is really the undeniable presence in the now of both of those dystopic seems coming coming nauseous to come to life but coming into existence but then as you’re saying which is actually so Redemptive for sheep the human soul is that like she was an example something might you might have some thoughts on as far as empowerment but it’s like the the sort of this myth of the scarcity of worthwhile productive labor that can be done with from picking up trash to planting trees to cleaning up toxic waste like through the blockchain micropayments and sort of micro temporary employment contracts that can really enfranchise all the homeless people to get a micro crypto payment without actually showing up and waiting in line to get in the welfare program or get into a you know some sort of job placement program you can just be like you know you show up on the there’s some spill like a whip there’s some kind of cleanup has to happen and people can just mop it and and have day labor crypto payments and there will really never be a gap between meaningful work and and fair pay and there’s plenty of wealth in the crypto world alone to finance stuff like that and even if you know whether it’s through a nonprofit system or through taxes done I mean I’m not going to endorse taxes in general but but you kind of know what I’m saying so how do you feel about that you feel like that’s the direction we’re going to go and there are so many projects that have mind-blowing for example the green miners are looking into mining basically with all green energy from turning trash into clean energy so that things like Bitcoin mining don’t have to take resources as we know them now and there are so many projects in the space for cleaning up the oceans and cleaning up the air and I’m bringing food to the right places and replanting trees and replenishing the soil I mean there if you think of any good initiatives going on in the world for every single one of them there is at least one crypto person who is trying to intercept and connect and there are some barriers you know like the the extreme hippies and I don’t mean that in any negative or positive connotation specifically just outside another word to use like the Crypt on earth and the cryptic Crypt of hippies and all these people like hippies like me back in the day when I when I was in Turkish hippie confused and all of this integrating technology and really scared of it I never imagined in my life that I would be here talking about technology I like but at the same time I see like you said you know how directly this has impacted my life I live a better life I can eat better food because I have my bills taken care of more often because I am connecting projects that feed my soul in that feed my pocket and and it’s just it’s just acknowledge he’s not going anywhere so yes hearing drones zooming around in the air concerns me especially there’s no privacy laws about this and I’m sure I am in plenty of videos just public random videos of people have of course all that is concerning to me but at the same time if I can get drones to massively plant trees and water them creating on cleaning water and stain of away and replenishing the Salt Lake of course I want that also so it’s a fine balance you knowing yeah there’s just there’s just so many opportunities and I’m a very hopeful first person you know and Technologies not going anywhere in the craziest disasters are going on in the world are very real and I’m very aware of my privilege and I’m honored for just being able to be a voice and a part of this movement in any way but if you are truly concerned if you’re a person sitting there and you are really really against technology my best advice to you is to get involved you know what I mean just get involved and make sure that our our moral compasses are still true and that our time is being used efficiently because while I think it’s piercing experiencing abundance is a really healing thing for our communities that happen monkey trained into scar City and fear so I think that having lavish parties in exotic places when they are led by the right Compass when we’re doing no trash Left Behind when we’re also feeding and in helping those communities those are beautiful experiences I think also it’s very easy to fall into the you know greedy egotistical side of things and so we can be people on the sidelines criticizing this movement or we can just Dive Dive Right In whichever way feels comfortable to you and try to help from within you know absolutely yeah amazing so do you want to take can you talk a bit about you know obviously not to be tokenizing but I was really thrilled to know that Amanda B Johnson is the spokes person for Dash and they have a sort of a in the dash consensus system they’re they’re holding their whole their whole technological platform on the basis of it there’s money allocated in there sitting there a crypto economic ecosystems to support people in in roles as delegates and Advocates and Educators and I’m I’m wondering if you have some thoughts on connecting with or have you connected with women in crypto and just having more solidarity and more initiatives that are women lead and women find it and having the the voice and the the wisdom of Sisterhood in the crypto space which is is seriously it’s I don’t know I wouldn’t say this that I understand to be hyper sexist or it’s just a typically gender imbalance in technology for various reasons of course and but this is one of the most inviting and open-minded for thinking space is so I’m just curious if you have thoughts understand that aspect I do and I just want to throw in really quickly that Dash is doing some incredible incredible things to use this new currency in the everyday lives of people and changing a lot I mean I spoke with Danny the other day from the Crypt of showing radio station and just some of the projects he shared with me that they’re doing going to orphanage orphanage is camping outside open and to defend that old homes and rebuilding after after earthquakes all of these weren’t the weather doing in Mexico and helping people from the US and for Mexico to send each other Dash instead of Fiat you know making it super useful super accessible for them and actually turning crypto into into resources are they need whether it’s a new fan for their ceiling or food or whatever and so they are doing a lot of work right on the ground and putting you know when ATMs in crypto ATM there just it is amazing to see this dystopian Society for good and bad is already here as completely I mean crypto is already being used in so many daily activities all the time so much more that we know and I know that documentaries are being created and they will be available to all of us soon and every time more but there is so much more happening than we even inside are aware of you know every time I talk with anybody is it blows my mind all the projects are going on in and that this is the Hood part of it is another one and there are all these telegram groups going around some of them are called crypto women badass women in blockchain you know he’s different name there’s this group on Facebook called crypto queens and I have found some amazing amazing humans are working with the UN and women investing in women and funding each other’s projects and the Miami Conference the North America Miami Conference Bitcoin conference I had this one person run up to me this woman and she said hi sister if you’re a woman here I pretty much want to connect with you and she added me to his telegram group and I stole that from her in the best possible way so every time I’m at any blockchain event I run up to the women and I said Hey sister if you’re a woman in the space I want to connect with you and it’s just so beautiful and so I may be 5 or 10 different groups that are all women in blockchain and art projects in blockchain it is it is really unbelievable I’m actually really excited for the South by Southwest there is a bunch of the crypto Queens are coming down we’ve been talking about doing a documentary about women in crypto and I just hope that I get to interview them 10 minutes with each one in super supportive so it’s been quite interesting and of course there is still competition with in here and there but for the most part I find that women are really supportive of each other I also have been working with swarm City and the storm funds quite a bit I meant Joel from Joel Dietz from swarm and we talked about a bunch our projects and all the stuff happening and you express a lot of interest in supporting both blockchain art projects and women equality so I know swarm is now sitting around the survey to try to make sure that there are as many women as men users and their platform that’s really exciting and also so many surveys about how they want the tokens to be used and so on are hungry to include the community that’s what’s Tim Meadows all about right and that’s what these events are all about so I think I think we’re doing pretty good so far and I see how much more collaboration is going to is going to start happening you know just from from these telegram groups and how excited everybody is and and also how cool is that that we have telegram instead all our messages so that the government can hover information are private conversations it’s just it’s amazing we weave I feel sad about the fact that Facebook and all these social media platform orny or Cuban connection you know I honestly have so many thoughts where I say I don’t care if Facebook knows all my information or if they own all my media I just want to be able to share photos of my friends in Argentina and this is the easiest form so how sad is it that we were okay with all of our privacy and information being exploited and people making money off of us just because we’re so starved for human connection so I’m really excited to be able to do the same things we’ve been doing and use the good parts of Technology like social media in a way that it also filled up our pockets and our Spirits you know that is music to my ears thank you so much I’m so glad that I I mean I just just the fact that your video came up right after cryptos news and we’re in this moment have his conversation this is all such beautiful music to my ears and yeah it’s been I mean in my field in the world of Tantra sacred sexuality sexual healing in just the I think the most important thing in my studies in my experience for healing a planet and really saving the Earth is really being instrumental and being conducive to two women Sisterhood and a healthy positive empowering way and actually creating more financial Independence so that women as mothers can have more freedom and power and actual means to make more independent decisions with their bodies with their with their you know how they how much even breastfeeding I mean the most people don’t know that it’s pretty much understood that about 5 years is a typical pre-industrial young length of time to be breastfeeding infants on demand and imagine the kind of infrastructure changes that have to happen for that to be possible in the modern world but if anything’s going to make it happen it’s going to be the fruit of the work that people like you were doing and that’s as you know might just sort of Public Service Announcement about you know a sort of futuristic crypto feminism you know that I said that I want to contribute to I want to see happen is this more and more working together and in collaboration So yeah thank you for helping with that and Centric energy and learning some teachings of something that it’s pretty recent to me maybe two years and there’s so much to learn and I found so much healing and in all of these intersections of psychedelics meditation 10 trick work and crypto and it’s it’s so bizarre and no way to talk about technology and evolution and money in the same line that we talked about psychedelics and in self-healing love and all of this to no life force of energy but it is all the same thing it’s it’s just growing us a more compassionate and accepting loving human race you know that’s what it’s all about and at the same time that I’m really excited about all of these blockchain as a vehicle for 4 change I am really concerned about Wi-Fi and radiation and you know of course all of these a chemtrail crazy stuff that we put ourselves through so I’m putting out the intention into calling for more people to get involved in to figure it out other ways to connect the other internet in a way that it’s not so destructive for us and so there’s not some natural solutions and then there’s simple things we can do like turning off wi-fi at night when you go to sleep and self-education on this on this topic but I would love to hear more like I said Solutions and privacy are are something that we are now noticing that we need to work on more at the same time that we develop all these amazing systems right we need to wear we’re kind of like it’s floating and all this magical ways and now we need to start creating the containers that will keep us a lines into our missions as well yeah absolutely absolutely awesome well yeah I’m getting about 2 or if you’ll just totally mind blown and totally satiated by learning all this stuff all this great stuff that you’re doing do you feel free now to take some time to promote your efforts and talk about we have coming up in the future will
