hey there! well first let me just say you're a boss a surfing, and you seem so down to earth and chill. i think it's really cool how you take the time out of your day to answer questions on tumblr. hahah, but anyway, it's my dream to become a professional surfer, but i am awful at competing. it just makes me nervous and i kinda freak out and then end up coming in like last. any suggestions ?
Thank you!! I don’t know if you should ask advice from me about competitive surfing, I kind of have it up for the most part. I think the girls that do the best are the ones who go out with the intention of surfing to their potential, disregarding what the other girls are doing in the heat always helped me, really focusing on my own game plan, both before the heat and in the water. And stay positive!! Seriously, so important. :)
what is your approach on life? reveal your philosophy.
Open mindedness and the dropping of self-judgement leads to enlightenment and higher states of consciousness. Our negative self talk will say whatever it can to break you, and everything around you down. I work on being an observer of my thoughts, both negative and positive. I see how they both effect my experiences and interactions. When I let my filter be my guide, and not the thought or vibe itself, I can literally feel my vibes coming through instead of letting them be me. For example, if I am having an interaction with someone really negative, and I forget the fact that I can detatch from the vibes and be an observer, then their negative energy can quickly become my own. But when I come from a place of observation and a certain state of detachment, I realize that I do not have to involve myself with certain energies. The knowledge of this choice has brought me to feel an incredible sense of control over my state of being. In the same sense, if I was to meet someone on a very high love frequency or vibration, even if their state is drug induced, I can come to their level naturally just by being aware of my vibes, and the way my vibes interact with theirs. Dropping my idea of judgement of “what people think” and feeling the way another being emits energy. When I see someone vibeing on really high levels, I can go there with them, because it feels good to have positive vibes running through you. haha! It’s so simple, but it is a practice! I have been practicing reading peoples energies as well as my own for quite some time now, and it is so incredible the mental breakthroughs I have attained! The key right now for me, which I am working on most, is not associating myself with my self doubt, or the part of me that says that everything I am feeling in this process is just bullshit. The more I detach myself from the idea of judgement, whether it be what people think when I am quite literally transcending within my mind when someone is playing music, or what people think of my physical being, critiquing every part. The thing is, there will always be people judging you, but that does not have anything to do with the energy you channel, unless you allow it to be. The more I realize the power of the positive energy I can channel, the more I can be present in the way I want to be with people, give them all the love and acceptance I can. But it is difficult to be in a space of love with someone who is deeply involved in their ego, to a point of trying to deteriorate you as well. I am still trying to figure out what to do in those situations, but for the most part, I would just say stay away from those kind of people. AHHH! I love talking about this kind of stuff. If you want to ask me anything about anything, please do!!! :) xoxoox
hello, you beautiful shiny soul. you are such a rolemodel and sister for us all :) you decorate our lives without ever requiring so much as some honest thanks. for that, "Thank You." i wanted to know if it sometimes happens that - no matter how good of a person you are - some people will never understand or like you, sometimes for reasons that have nothing to do with you at all. how do you deal with something like this? for me, this is always a hard thing to face and accept. how do you stay conf
Thank you!! You are all my sisters too!!! hehe :) For me, I just have to remember to have compassion for every person, every situation. People can create any story to tell themselves to dislike you for some reason, from the way you dress to the way you speak. But it is because they don’t see the best in themselves. Those who see the best in themselves will see the best in you, and not waste their time freaking about your flaws! For me, it’s all about staying true to myself, knowing my own truth from someone elses opinion of me. As long as your coming from a place of openness and love, you will see it returned, and you don’t have to put your energy into the darkness someone else creates, it has nothing to do with you :) xoxo
Hey beautiful soul! I'm just your regular earth and ocean loving human and I want to know what I can do for transparent sea project, I don't have a lot of money to splurge and I'm only 18 just I desperately want to take part. <3
I wish I could tell you! The main organization is Surfers for Cetaceans, s4cglobal.org. There are some volunteer opportunities on the site. Check it out! :) xoxo
Does it ever feel weird seeing your picture in magazines or on other people's tumblr's? You're like a celebrity and so many people love you! It would be so weird for me, but so nice. Whats your thoughts on that? By the way, youre a great role model!
It’s undoubtebly bizarre, but kind of cool. It’s just weird when I see pictures I don’t like. haha! Aw thank you hun!!! wow, that’s really nice :) xxooxoxo
what kind of curry to you make? do you have a recipe?xxx
I do about a half a cup of rice milk, about 2-3 tablespoons of coconut milk, 1 tablespoon peanutbutter 3 tsp brown sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and curry powder, ginger spice, garlic salt. stir that into some sauteed stuff like broccoli, carrots, bell peppers, celery, chicken, raisins and peanuts. You can cook the veggies at first with just water or I do about half a tablespoon of olive oil.
jealousy is such a powerful negative emotion, how do you deal with it?
When I have felt jealous in the past, I just try my hardest to overcome the desire to be someone else physically, I have to remember who I am, and how it is so important to fully love and appreciate myself. When I see other people being jealous, I try not to let it effect me too much, but it’s a hard thing to deal with when someone you love is giving you negative vibes and feelings just because they are unhappy or envious. A lot of times people don’t understand all the hard work it takes to get to certain points, and they just see what you have and want it as opposed to processing the whole entire journey to get to where you are, and the fact that if they were to put in as much energy into their own situation as I did, then they would see the same result. Jealousy is an illusion created by the ego, that’s why i try not to let it overcome me.
hey! you look so amazing! your top tips for staying healthy? thx <3
Thanks! I think it’s important to snack throughout the day but with really healthy things. I have small meals throughout the day. I don’t eat cheese, or anything fried ever. I usually use a small bit of olive oil when I’m cooking veggies which is every night. I stay away from large portions of carbs, though they are really important in your diet. My ideal day of eating includes a bowl of small bowl of fruit, nuts and yogurt in the morning, then a bowl of raisin bran with a pot of tea. Then little snacks throughout the day, carrots, nuts, dried fruit. and then A bowl of tomato soup and piece of bread for lunch. snack an apple, crackers, Then dinner of veggies, curry, rice, chicken, salad, whatever I create. And that sustains me throughout the day on a really energetic and feel good level. But usually I don’t follow this too perfectly. But when I do is when I feel my healthiest, eating all organic, fresh from the earth. :) Just be aware that when you start eating really healthy, it gets harder to eat out, a lot of stuff starts to make you feel sick. haha!
what do you do to feel more comfortable in your skin? & when you are with new people how do you stay you and be confident? :)
It’s hard sometimes to be completely comfortable. I just try to confront all of the aspects of myself that instill negative talk upon myself or others. I try to come from a place of perception that allows a space to actually connect with a person, listen to them and not what is going on in my head. Don’t focus on yourself as a physical, what your teeth look like, your eyes, your whatever, focus on seeing the person as an energetic being past a point of physical. That helps get over insecurities because then you connect with a person on a level of equality through eye contact, equal recognition for yourself and them. Don’t worry too much about anything. That’s when I start getting akward, when I start thinking what the other person must be thinking of me. When you put out positivity and love, you will begin connecting with people on a whole other level.
what did the transparent sea crew do for you that was so amazing?
They let me into their family for three days, fed me, gave me a place to sleep, and showed me my most amazing life moments I’ve ever experienced on the ocean. They’re just a truly amazing group of people, aside from everything they do for causes, their energy is just powerful.
how did you get into modeling for billabong? :) and do you have any tips for others who are wanting to be a model for them aswell? because it would be my absoloute dream to model for billabong or something like it! thanks, xx
I started surfing for billabong when I was 14, and then it turned into a modeling deal as well. I don’t have tips :/ I think just be yourself, be beautiful and happy, and if modeling is really what your heart is telling you to do, then follow it with all you’ve got my friend!
