My Bliss Project: the Volcano

Over the past weekend I travelled to Newport Beach, CA to The Bliss Project with two people that are dear to my heart; Nikki & Candace. Now I could go into great detail about what The Bliss Project is all about, all the people I met and the feelings that arose but today I’m not. Today I am going to talk about an odd dream that came through for me during one of the sessions, so here it goes…


Yep that’s right.. During one of sessions you sat with two woman you had never met before, introduced yourself and answered certain questions in 7 minutes (those minutes went by so fast!!!). The question ‘What is the most embarrassing dream you have?’ comes up, I sit there for a second.. I had nothing… then BAM! I say A Comedian… yep, A Comedian.. I have never uttered these words in my life, I maybe thought it once as a kid because I loved to make other people laugh and put on a ‘show’ but never did I verbally announce this. To my surprise I got a welcoming response from the ladies, they actually saw something there… That was the last session of the day so I meet up with Nikki & Candace again, at first I am not sure if I should share my revelation with them or not but BAM! it comes out again ‘So… I just said my dream was to be a comedian’ of course I get some laughs in complete shock from them and then the rest of the weekend we saw everything as material for my ‘skit’… teapot arms, shark books, vagenius, brain scan, journaling and soo much more

But then there was Susan! Picture the three of us sitting in a rental car office for 40-ish minutes just after the most soul searching weekends of our lives, waiting while Nikki was on the phone (that’s another story). Earlier in the day Candace and I were saying how we would love to meet with someone who lived there to see what it’s really like to live in California, enter Susan! She was the woman helping us out at the rental car company, slowly she started chatting to us and then before you know it we turned the conversation into another type of session from the Bliss Project. I was telling a childhood memory of a vacation, then Susan told us some of hers and we were all bonding just as we had when we were back in the ballrooms of the Marriott Newport Beach. We told her about The Bliss Project and told her she needs to come next year! As we were leaving we almost hugged her too.

Can I bring that type of joy and conversation into my life even when I’m not just leaving The Bliss Project?

Maybe my life is a Bliss Project.. Maybe I am a project that is working out the equations like a science fair project? I am like a science fair project, but not like a Volcano you’re trying to erupt, more like… Wait, actually it is like a Volcano.. I am adding all the ingredients and watching how all they combine together to explode to something GREAT!, bursting with love & joy, sharing all the bubbles – all my bubbles! Why does a Volcano have to be a bad thing? We associate it with anger, like someone is stressing out and you think ‘Oh fuck they’re about to ERUPT!!!’ Why not look at it as a good thing.. like a science fair Volcano; Adding the ingredients of self love/development, passion for work, friendships, etc. and then bursting with high vibe & energy. Your burst will happen if you put the right ingredients together.

I’m really not sure where this analogy is coming from.. I was terrible in science, like my science fair project was comparing the greasiness of chip brands lol.. not sure how that was science and obviously I did not place in that fair but this project of life I am going to get first place in my own way. This may be coming through because Alicia Keys ‘Girl on Fire’ was playing on the airplane..

Well you may have just read through this and thought what the heck is she even talking about? Or it might have made some actual sense.. I don’t know where my future leads but I do know I love to laugh and to make other people laugh so like the quote says; Find Joy in the Journey!

My name is Shannon, in August 2014 I decided to make a change in my life... Started working out on the regular, eating Clean foods 80-90% of the time and began working on my mindset. I'm here to talk to you all about food, working out, non-toxic products, dance and living a free life - whatever that means to you!
