Andre and I had the opportunity this winter to travel through Canada celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary, where we combined our artistic talents to create “Butterfly” in stunning Lake Louise, Alberta.
The concept for Butterfly came to me when I saw a pair of beautiful, hand painted silk wings at an art fair. I immediately pictured in my mind how exquisite they would be floating across the ice. Since figure skating has been such a huge part of my life, it’s always been a dream to skate on a frozen lake. I thought, what better place to become a butterfly on ice than a frozen lake!
The meaning and symbolism of Butterfly is “transformation”. “My goal with this film was to express how everyone of us has the ability to reveal our butterfly self. If we go inward and awaken to our true nature, we can transform into the most beautiful version of ourselves; similar to the metaphor of winter always changing to spring There may be parts of us or things in our lives that feel cold, challenging, dormant, frozen but the laws of nature tell us that Spring never fails to follow Winter, and therefore, we have the potential to emerge from our cocoon, spread our beautiful wings and fly with more vibrancy and love to express in our lives.”
Become a Butterfly with us.

Hola from Costa Rica!
The right person for you is going to fall in love with you for who you are just as you are. We know that when we first start seeing someone, we all put on our best face and for good reason.
You want to show that person your best self. That’s all good. But if you continue to be anyone than yourself, you may end up attracting the wrong person. Me personally, I’m kind of a goofball. In past failed relationships, I often tried to be what I thought that person wanted me to be. Which wasn’t myself.
Or, I’d try to be myself, and it’d turned that person off. With Andre however, we were living as roommates so I had no choice but just be myself right from the beginning. I really think that’s what allowed him to fall in love with me just as I am. Not me pretending to be who I thought he wanted me to be. But just silly me!
From around the world!

Ola! Mi Amigos! From Peru! “Honesty Is the Best Policy.” “The Truth Will Set You Free.” These might be oldies but they’re goodies.
This subject can be hard to accept sometimes but deep down, in my heart of hearts, I know it to be true. In order to have the fullest, most loving, successful relationship you need to be completely honest about everything.
Once you’re in a long term, committed relationship there’s no keeping secrets.
Secrets are like weeds. At first they might seem small and harmless, but over time those weeds grow and get bigger. The longer time goes by, the harder it is to yank the roots out. So it’s best just to be honest from the start.
I learned this the hard way.
Once upon a time, I kept something from Andre because I thought it would upset him. Over time it began to fester and pain me. It was difficult to come out and be truthful but once I did I felt so much better and it made me never want to keep anything from him again.
Having an honest relationship has allowed for trust to build and a relationship built on trust is powerful!
I believe it has the ability to transform and heal ANYTHING!
Appreciation in a partnership is something that can revolutionized your relationship.
Do you ever find yourself dwelling on the things you feel your partner did wrong or maybe didn’t do at all? The next time one of those thoughts arises immediately turn your focus to something you appreciate about your partner. The more you do this, the more all you will see are the things you appreciate.
This little exercise isn’t meant to replace dialogue or communication in any way. It’s only meant to get your mind in the mode of appreciating. Which, like I mentioned earlier can TRANSFORM AND HEAL ANYTHING!
You can incorporate appreciation into every aspect of your life. Appreciate your body and all the incredible workings it contains.
..the safe roof over your head… the food you put on your table or your clean running water…
…the shoes on your feet…
I promise you, once you get started on this list, it will be pages, and pages long.
Expanding our appreciation causes everything around us to glow with LOVE!
Tune in next time to the ‘True Love Lessons and Confessions with Sierra’.
Time for a confession…
I haven’t always been lucky in love. I mean, let’s be honest, few of us are. Love is a quest that requires training, it requires patience, and usually it involves devastating heartbreak. But it’s how we bounce back, it’s what we do with our circumstances that determines victory or defeat.
When I was younger, I didn’t recognize my value, and this caused me to be vulnerable to situations where my value was taken advantage of. I was physically and sexually abused by a peer of the opposite sex, and I was sexually abused and assaulted by someone I trusted, someone in a position of authority, someone I looked up to.
Though the road to healing from these wounds has been long and windy, it’s my outlook, and choice to turn poison into medicine that’s enabled me to really work on loving myself, recognizing my value, and thus attracting the type of love that I truly deserve.
Girls, women, sisters… please hear me! Each and every one of you is a Goddess. Feel into that power, fuel that power with self love, self respect, and then share that love with the world. I promise you that if you do this, you will attract the most loving, healthy, happy relationships.
