Com and our journey together will begin hello dear beloved welcome to Township on podcast episode number 131 I am here with a very distinguished gentle woman and her name is devika Singh and she is VTEC e x chica YouTube same and if you haven’t been over to her YouTube channel to look at her amazing instructional tantric sex and self relationship advice and just great wisdom all the videos you been putting out over over a couple years now leased yet several years are just trying to you know get that loving good energy out there to folks and help people discover more opportunities for self-love them in better relating in their lives and so and then with assertive text Spin and Edge cuz you have that background as well so without further Ado do you want to tell us a bit about how you came to be the tech country care what the what GIF you have to offer these days awesome thank you so much thank you yes I was you mentioned I’m too because I’m your techies country, so I have been doing YouTube I have to actually I should start off by saying I did take a break what’s a med 2017 so you know middle of last year because I started getting really busy with my practice and and I actually decided to go back to school and I’ll get into why I am just a little second a little bit but what inspired me to do YouTube alongside with going full-time with my coaching practice was that I know that you mention I’m a selfish relationship coach as well as its hundreds X coach and a big part of that for me was always helping people understand where they stand in the equation of their lives right because for me I feel like southcare spans over many different aspects of the South sulita mental emotional energetic sexual and physical right like we are constantly evolving as people but we’re also honor thing ourselves right here always actually just trying to not just take care of ourselves but enhance our lives so that’s always been a big part of my my existence as a coach I’ve been coaching I was trying to figure this out the other day cuz I was doing it part-time in an awful lot so I’ve been honestly coaching for about 14 years I do have a diploma in life coaching but I I actually was doing it before that too because I actually just had like people even in parties and like social Gatherings when I was actually even quite young like you know 1920 just feel really comfortable with me and start talking to me about you know the their life dilemmas when I started realizing I had a really good knack for helping people and transitions in their lives but I always felt like something was missing and I was always curious about talking about that is I got into finding my teachers and embracing Eastern philosophies and especially with Tibetan Buddhism I started really understanding myself as a x Rika and I really wanted to share that with people and as you mentioned I worked in taxes well I have recreational coating background and I always really stand behind tag because I feel like that’s revolutionising everything for us like I feel like air in our society has stagnated in certain Arenas and I feel like heck is going to help he’ll be here about disruptive Tech and I feel like. Disruption in many ways help us help our society actually evolved faster and much better ways than we could have without it right like it also connects us if it wasn’t for the internet then we wouldn’t even describe people like you and to meet them in person like this is it I just think you’re so lucky to be in this time you know yeah do you have any more to say about the disir your journey to this point or do you want to talk now about what what people can be looking looking for on your YouTube channel some of the topics you’ve gone into yeah let’s talk about that I’d be more than glad to so actually I created the YouTube channel when I went full-time with my practice because I was having a hard time kind of explaining to people what I do when I first started I actually was gearing more towards single people right I noticed single people were the ones that seemed most interested in what I was doing prior to going full force with my practice it was like okay I’ll be a single singles coached but then I started realizing my clients were actually people who are married already but a lot of them had felt alienated in their relationships are wanted to re-engage the spark in their relationship select a few ingredients of thought and then I realized you know what like ice had less sink people actually coming to me for one on one coaching but I also wanted to do singles clinics I live in Toronto Ontario in Canada but I started also you can notice saying that for example meetup.com is changing their policies and they were no longer allowing dating coaches to even have like dating Clinic signals clinics I start saying through their service and I was like well I could do this through Facebook but there’s something not quite right here there’s something weird going on for me so I was really just tapping and try to figure out well you know if people who are married are the ones are coming to me why not just continue to cater towards that niche market so you’ll notice on my YouTube channel I do to a lot of dating advice and I also started writing at 1:44 she does the city which is a Blog for women in Toronto it’s a lot of its dating and sex advice but I also started really putting an emphasis on self-pleasure and I actually prefer the term self-pleasure over masturbation is masturbation tends to have a negative connotation for people I think even if it’s Latin roots are the best either like it doesn’t exactly translate to the amazing as it is self-pleasure and I feel like you know when we’re on a touch of Journey we’re on a journey to self-discovery it begins with us you know so I have put an emphasis I have a playlist on my channel and specifically for some pleasure and I also have a playlist for dating advice and for self improvement and you know just what I would say if anybody is new to my channel take a look at my playlist because I do actually have you know I try to categorize them as best as I could also because I’m a huge nerd most player I found wonderful ways to bring minor dumb and my love for Tech Trends in the intersect sometimes it to my face by Channel X I like to have fun and creative Endeavors like creativity something also I think really drives home to self care and self-love so I was quite busy I was doing you know what the weekend I feel like there’s a lot of material on there and I just you don’t try to organize the best site might possibly could to help people with you know whatever they’re looking for you know because something to is he could go to my channel for one thing but then end up finding something else entirely that intrigues you or helps you solve an issue too so you don’t have a lot of people just email me and thanked me for the free information cuz I like I really do like providing free information and the coaching aspect I I provide that because I feel like we have you may have one problem but then being able to discuss those problems and actually personalized and work through those is so imperative so I’m about to head out to people who have with my clients that need on that level as well so it’s just really nice to like when you have enough should you get this to all the time. Just people you never met emailing you say thank you so much for what you provide us you know that’s cool that’s really what you wanted to head home and just you know spread this information like wildfire it looks just like you do and that by the way I’m loving everything that you do cryptocurrency right now like it’s just a mind-blowing wonderful to me like you’re doing such a great job with bridging like Ops 4 people amazing awesome thanks so much well yeah I I love your work and I have you as the top of my my playlist on the the University of time trip playlist that I put together which is got all kinds of wild stuff is it a good introduction yet especially bringing in the shamanic aspects of you want to talk about you or your philosophy of Tantra really and I know you you really have that you have a flair for the Buddhist infections of Tantra and so yeah it should be a great a great time and place to kind of give a unique perspective that you have witches you brought me really into an understanding and appreciation for the the Met police Traditions which in some ways you could say have preserved some of the most pristine copies of the database from the ancient times so but you know with all that said you were your secret Tantra but I know they’ll be so many more opportunities in the future is wild to do this because it almost does feel like a secret like I I would love to relate as best as I can but you will you ensure you know this is Tantra is very hard to find publicly but I think a lot of it is hidden in plain sight like and that’s the beauty of it really like I’ve had I love the analogy of just like people walking by the treasure chest everyday and not realizing it’s there it’s there in plain sight but if people it’s only there to exactly the knowledge of the wisdom of non-duality just very much like what they refer to in Buddhism it’s like if you look at the way tonsura is practice like in Hinduism for example and also Buddhism the idea of taking what’s taboo and embracing it is very much a part of these traditional religious systems around Todd’s Road I like taking for example bodily fluids and I know in him to talk to her I like her certain sectors are sects of Hinduism where it is toxic Hinduism and they’ll take things that are considered taboo mainstream Hinduism and use that in their religious practices so like it could be poly fluids it could be like meat sex could also obviously be a part of that as well alcohol I’ve heard of being used in those sex as well and I’m not saying that you have to practice with a hindrance talked about this talk-to-text what other other one might completely you know take you by storm and you makes us fall in love with you know the kids would say with Buddhist talks for that’s really appeal to me for example but the idea behind that is that you’re embracing what human Humanity has considered let’s say disgusting or an appealing and understanding in that process that it’s all one in the same you know to say one thing is gross or you know just you know unworthy and then the other thing is sacred this is not you know this is not what you’ll find in time for us how tall is looking at Everything Is Beautiful one of my favorite books call Todd request I’m not I’m not going to ruin it for anybody I just highly recommend the book masontops Rica in the whole book where she’s that’s one thing she’s really teaching her students she’s just teaching him the you know like one thing is like a fairy say for example of leprosy disease shouldn’t be just throw it off to the side over there like we should be acknowledging this is a part of life and you know and embracing that this can happen to people but also helping people learning took the nozzle Italy and compassionately live you know what illness or disease that’s that’s for me that’s a very big part of what I’ve done as well as a talk to me, like I have hopped I had help people who are living with animals that are both debilitating and also you know might be considered taboo and Society or like you know like looked upon as like as for example STDs and STIs fortunately and there’s always been some weird stigma around the sort of thing and psychologically it’s actually been proven that when people try to hide illnesses they actually deteriorate faster like so you know that it’s just it’s unfortunate for me to see Louise Hay of the Harris Foundation who she found it that has Fun Station one of her biggest things to Chief time in her life was helping people who had just contracted HIV during the introduction of HIV you know like the time when we first started seeing it in North America and her work was so amazing because you know she was showing people that you don’t have to be ashamed because you have those you know it’s it was so beautiful to see the kind of counseling work that she did and also in group settings you know which I think Community settings are so amazing support groups incredible whether it’s a physical illness or mental illness you know it’s just it’s one aspect of Tantra thankfully going off path but a little bit but it’s something I think worth mentioning because you know racing life and whatever it brings us is very much a part of town tomorrow like you know one thing one of my teachers Devi Ward had mentioned was once what is the Swift path and what you meant by that was that when you are practicing counselor about your lessons will come very fast and makeup faster than if you weren’t practicing at what times are hard they’re hard and fast and to be able to weather that storm EPPICard of that is understanding this down to Valatie and realizing when things are not going so well when they are going so well there’s like a middle part down the middle of that will help you navigate that right that will help you understand that what are things are Graver things or negative like are there temporary that there’s a Equanimity down the middle which is very spoke about Buddhism the we can maintain and you know true that there is a sort of a pleasure and happiness in obtaining bad right so this is something that comes up a lot in all of the aspects of Tantra I have studied and then when we talk about let’s say for example Neo talks about which is what we really see in North America most we do look at sex and intimacy here a lot and I think that that’s also important because we are living in a society unfortunately that’s still not like I’ve had people say to me how can you say the society sex negative because you know we have nudity available to us not forcing them like wolves. About whether or not it’s available it’s our mentality around it why is it that in Europe I can go to a spa more frequently and be naked and not has my body constantly he looked at sexually you know like my body is my body our bodies are our bodies it’s it’s what we’re born with like it’s not always sexualize thing it’s like I feel like nudity is a Perfectly Natural State for us so you know like I feel like I know and it’s freezing so you know I’m grateful for clothes in many ways and it helps me also you know be creative to lie cuz I think of clothes of something I could be creative with but that’s the same time I don’t see what the big deal is when some of these make it feel like I just I don’t like I think that being naked so beautiful thing and and incorporating that into our life must be so much more amazing like I almost feel like this restraint on sexual freedom is actually a way that is being used in marketing to Market to people when people are unhappy and when they feel uncertain about themselves and they’re not confident they’re so much easier to Market to and I think it just feeds into consumerism that’s my take on that and that’s why she put car driving back to school because well one of the was any of the we’ve talked about social media before I can’t advertise for example my YouTube video I have free content I have completely follow the community standards for YouTube but I’m not allowed on any social media that has a sex educator to advertise no sex educator is maybe unless they have a really good PR firm the recognize let’s say buy a newspaper or liquids in a writing for the newspaper or they have their best selling author you know like unless they are somehow going through certain stereospecific channels they are not allowed because of the keywords they have and I think that’s ridiculous I feel like that you know and I’m sex education Advocate because of the fact that it has people’s lives so we need to have discussions around sexuality and intimacy but at the same time why are these channels being blocked like I think of the full grown adult and knowing that we have the technology to discern between whether you know the child is surfing Facebook or who shouldn’t be because like I think it be 14 or over anyways to have a Facebook account or have your parents sign it either way I like what I’m saying is they know they have a pretty good understanding in a lot of these Arenas of what the age group is the person wants like looking at it and also there’s nothing explicit when I’m advertising you know my work is a sex educator there’s nothing explicit about it when any sex educator is advertising so I really don’t understand why sex educator is a therapy lumped in with my opinion the key words with pornography right like I’m like okay fine I can understand why adults entertainment is Italian for adults and should be advertised the adults but sex addict Mission as it is most of us don’t even get a proper you know level sex education in school some of us have none you know if that man has always been looking for the stuff I think that it should be easier for me to find this information you know or to have at least be some sort of encouragement to go looking for this information cuz they’re so many amazing sex Educators in this on this continent it’s mind-blowing what a great Community we have here you know I’ve worked with I work with a person who is a sex educator in the tundra field and he was I think was one of the first ones that not one of the only ones to get sex ed seemed content up for the one of the affiliate marketing platforms where you can have other people you know your stuff it was such a fight yes it is besides Google AdWords and Facebook ads you know it it’s it’s made me kind of have to think out-of-the-box a bit cuz you know you understanding this feeling this pain Point really and then what was exciting what I wanted to operate a tip to you and anyone else now is that a yeah there’s a decentralized cryptocurrency platform called steam at that is basically a Blog posting video hosting website that you can sign up for and actually get paid in cryptocurrency for your content so when people vote your posts you’re actually getting financial compensation for it and and there’s monetary value is monetizing user content and it’s also based on this thing called the interplanetary file system which is basically like a bit torrent of file sharing so that you can host your website files on there and it can’t be censored it’s Packer resistant and it can’t be for 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 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 just 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 that made me realize something about myself and that is one aspect right off the the 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 is he struggling so much to do what they love and they’re so good at it and and disciplining of wealth in the right hands is an opportunity for us to fill up every single block of the changing out for the artist to paint if that’s what they want to do the visual artist want to paint or the artist 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 the west side so 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 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 building a website if you hate billing 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’ve encountered a lot of people fear based in this space who are all about competition and want to do their nails 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 where I know a couple that’s where it what I felt that are not a couple, but 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 for open minded or meditation more expensive way of looking at this movement awesome God you want to talk more about just practicing meditation and what sort of how your your spiritual processes and maybe 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 in 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 I mean you’re providing a platform for people to express themselves and you’re 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 people can be looking out for and and yeah we’ll we’ll call it a good introduction to hopefully we can also keep in touch on going up next and that is the exist festival.com that it’s a beautiful project where we are just connecting more and more people doing similar events and hoping that we can continue to collaborate so if anybody’s interested in anything that we’re doing please reach out

token Fest in San Francisco I will be there as well and then we have an art party in the bay somewhere so all this information will be on social media that is at my new brakes on Twitter or breaks on Instagram and I wanted to mention. So I most recently connected with gel polish and he’s doing art for addicts and he has a lot of projects going on in that world so I’m really excited to get more involved in healing the process of healing ourselves through ART and handling addiction because I believe technology is also an addiction right so being able to create those containers again and also few initiatives for the cleaning up the oceans and ocean token and just so many good projects coming up so anyway that I can that I can help or help you connect with those who will get you to where you want to be the green miners we clean energy any of that please reach out to me I would love to help out cool thank you again so much now Newburgh city has been such a pleasure and yet again thank you for just allowing me to be impulsive and send a message out to you and get you on the show and to know also that your ear integrating some the tantric wisdom in and works into your life it’s so exciting and I agree this is all just one big Kundalini blockchain Bliss Bellini black seamless hashtag that will be in touch in the future and thank you again so much sounds good thank you so much have a beautiful night.
