It's Electrifying is the first episode in "All The Mushy Love Stuff" series.
You've all heard the song, you know the lyrics, "better shape up" have you ever considered how that plays out in your relationships?
As I was singing in the shower, after a couple of weeks of relationship conversation with clients and friends, I simply busted out laughing at what I was hearing and got the awareness of the places I have reacted and made choices based on unconscious messaging that just lives in me from years of listening to sappy love songs. Don't get me wrong, I love them and being able to laugh at them changes something.
This new solo series is a Pop and Drop series, as something pops, I will record and drop and episode.
I appreciate everyone who is tuning in, and hope it contributes something to you, even if that something is getting a laugh out of me. What ever you choose, remember, it's YOUR life!

It certainly wasn't with us today. Join our shenanigans as we navigate technology and road trips and the 4th of July. Oh my! Still, we know how to have fun and laugh about ALL of our experiences. It is Life after all. And we are Human Beings. We really are!
A rhapsody of Energy. Let us entertain you as we explore the effectiveness of excitement to get you out of your embracement of the attitude of Eeyore. Earnestly though . . . we love energy and what it is and how it works in the body and we discuss it extensively today. Enjoy!
How open are you to receiving that which you are asking for? Jade plants = Money. Summer fun deck couches and melting kisses. Put on your ruby red slippers and be prepared to jump into the magic of choosing for you fabulous fun! We are on our soapbox today telling it to you sista! And laughing and laughing and laughing. It might be too fun for you.
Planes, trains and automobiles. What is it like to travel with people who put garbage for food in their body . . . especially in confined spaces. What about the garbage thoughts we have in our mind? How does that affect our body? Laugh with us as we navigate around the topic of "garbage in, garbage out." And we do mean literally. It's disgusting. And funny.
The magic is in the gratitude. Waking up to your own superpowers as well as the planet's superpowers. Who are you being and how do you contribute to this beautiful planet just by your presence. Showering you with appreciation, the planet with appreciation and each other with appreciation. We love the expansive yumminess that brings to all of our worlds. Bring on the gluttony of gratitude!
Who's the asshole now? Have you ever been one? We know we have. What if we just admitted to all the times we were assholes. Doesn't that feel lighter? We are human, we make mistakes. It's okay. It's also okay to be a dog, want a dog, and be followed around like a dog. What contribution can you be to be someone's dog? Maybe you want to be my dog?
It's Father's Day and the beginning of a new season! And how appropriate that we are laughing about Roosters (cocks)and the men in our lives. You know we love men, so us talking about them won't change. What might change is your perspective or viewpoint just by listening and laughing with us. Who knows? Give us a try. You might like what you hear. You might also hate it. It's all good to us.
Who are you being to receive the man who disappears? Who are you being in the first moments of those hot and steamy beginnings? What are you deciding that those moments mean? Who are you being after you've made that decision? Likely someone else. And now he gets to respond to that. Relating is in each moment. Energy is in each moment. Call in your inner kitty and taste what is good.
In what parts of your life are you able to be completely you? Where are you the most free to just be yourself without trying to be someone you are not, and without having people project themselves on to you? It can be confusing at times. But also fun and funny as we do the experiment of living this life. And for some reason all of that segued into how much technology has changed over our lifetime. (i.e. do we actually take pictures of what we eat??!) And inevitably our kids. (sorry, not sorry, homies)
Growing up can be tough. Today we talk about the funny and oh so embarrassing moments we've had as our bodies moved into puberty and beyond. Be warned there's lots of boob talk in this episode. There's also just a lot of body talk. What trauma's do you hold in your body? What kind of memories? What's going on right now in your body that you'd like to change? Let's laugh and loosen the hold.
Doesn't sound so lighthearted does it? Yet somehow we manage to laugh at our own silliness and stupidity. Yeah we've let go of a LOT of baggage over the years. And we recognize that having our own backs might be the best love we can get. Self Love. We also like changing our minds. And choosing, choosing, choosing. What's yummy for you in this 10 seconds? You can change your mind in the next 10 seconds. And then are you really self sabotaging? Or are you self loving?
Okay, we said we weren't going to use the Unicorn bitmoji . . . but we have to! After a spirited exchange about ALL things Unicorn it's warranted. Do you see the unicorn potential in you? Seeing the good, single experiments, we love to jump tracks. Conjugate with us as we laugh our way through this episode. (without spewing tea at each other)
Join this raucous conversation about self love, not being wrong and the fun of a finger in your ear. We also tackle the serious subject of sexual abuse, and in this episode open up the conversation about male sexual abuse. Yes, here we are again. It doesn't matter what we talk about, we'll find the ridiculous, the funny and move us all beyond even painful subjects. We know, because we have.
Indulge in the yumminess. Our senses are so important in our experience of not only our food, but also of the world and each other. Today we talk about being oral. What tastes good and why. And, as usual, we bring it right back to dating. Hmmm . . . that makes no sense at all!
Are you a futurist or just a weirdo? Maybe you are both. In this episode we talk that and the oh so serious topics of vaginal lubrication, sexual healing and communication. We also talk about conversations and words and the space between, what we hear and what we don't hear. Listen closely because it's weird. But fun.
Promise to not use your brain in this episode. Just feel the laughter. Just kidding. (Or not.) Listen in as we discuss what it means to make a promise, keep a promise and break a promise. Oh, the incongruency of life! And what do you do with a cat named Dude? Consider the possibilities.
Nothing to be sorry about. Own your sexy. Own your quirkiness. Own your weirdness. We do. How did we get here? Acknowledgement of all the crazy weird ass up bringing that we all have, and which has helped make us who we are. How fun! (Really)
Will you invite us into your earbuds and laugh along? Today we talk about waiting, and cats, and aikido and brown paper bags. Pretty random, but OMG funny! (at least we think so.) Well, and of course talking about cats brought up the subject of pussy's and dating. You'll just have to listen to figure out this one. Or just receive it, and laugh with us.
Tools. Tools and more tools. Ask a question. Join a class. Make a future map. Take a remedy. Covering the gamut of goods for getting well and choosing a bigger life. Why not? And why not laugh a long the way?
Wow, we've made it to 30 episodes. Celebrate with us and the hippos. Be a fly on the wall or insert yourself into the conversation. We won't gaslight you but give you our unadulterated truth. Whatever that might be in this 10 seconds. If you need a laugh, you know where to find us.
What can we say? We are all over the map in this episode. (like that's unusual!) Travelling to the kingdom of relationships and choosing princes, knights or kings. Asking for what we want, and actually receiving it. Nature vs Nurture, and what does birth order have to do with it? Yuk it up with us. It's good for your health.
Bodies and Yes. Bodies and No. What happens when we say yes and what happens when we say no? Shock can actually push us out of our body. Huh??! What happens when we jump out? And what happens when we say Yes to jumping back in? Laughing and turning things on their head. Yup it's another episode.
Sounds like a health episode. Fevers, homeopathy, aggravations and side effects. Interested in a paradigm shift? It's a slightly different point of view. Listen in and find out. You might hear something different.
The wacky world of App dating and what is actually attractive. Do you like looking at men's torsos? Meh . . . not us. And how about this whole phenomenon of singleness? Is it wrong? Do you feel wrong? Join us as we dive in and snigger at all that is out there in the dating world. After all, we know. We're single too!

What do you have strewn about or hidden in the corners of your space? And what about all of that stuff keeps you from doing what you really want to be doing? Chuckle along as we talk about doing things we don't want to do, and make our kids do what we want them to do. Oh the cunundrums we put ourselves in!
Join a hilarious conversation about button pushing and teasing. How sensitive are you to being teased? Has it toughened you up, or made you more sensitive to the feelings of others? How does it translate into business and family? And how about letting ourselves off the hook. You can't get it right, so you can't get it wrong. Huh?!
What does it mean to surrender? What about surrendering to inspiration? Or surrendering to another? Join us as we talk about surrendering and allowing and what that means in our lives, with our relationships with men and in our sexual relationships. Do you want to be joined at the hip?
Will you still choose it? Online dating and what the experts say. Do you agree? Maybe you and your body know more than the experts do when it comes to dating and what is right for you. And what if happily ever after is today? Look around and see if you'd choose something different.
Are you aspiring to look like your bitmoji? Michele is. In this episode we talk about how much fun it is to play with bitmojis, and how much fun it is to play with others in the form of flirting. Have you ever gotten in trouble for flirting? We have. But how fun is it to flirt with men, dogs and babies? Lots and lots. Join us for some laughs.
Let's talk about sex. Again. If we talk more about it with each other does desire increase? When we engage with men and really listen to them, do they think we are the most interesting person alive? What does it mean to be present? Winners, losers and no count men and who will be the best contribution to your life. And what if 2 or more are better? (men, that is;)
Let's talk about relationships from another perspective. What did you grow up thinking that you wanted in a relationship? Were you waiting for your knight in shining armor to come and rescue you from your life? How often do we wait and not create because we think we need a man to direct us? Did Disney program us? Join us for this conversation about relationships and the courage to choose something that works for us without being bullied by our friends, relatives and even our kids.
Elena Salazar joins Michele and Michelle to talk about sex, relationships and the feminine. On June 21-23 2019 Elena and Michele are hosting an intimate woman's retreat on Lummi Island on the beautiful Pacific Northwest coast.

It's not a one size fits all universe. Have you ever tried to make the man you are dating fit into some preconceived notion of what you want him to be? Have you ever wondered about the shape and size of your vagina and how it fits with its opposite counterpart? Tree bathing, ocean bathing and finding your groove. The usual stuff.
Curiousity killed the cat. Or did it? Are we curious enough? Interested enough to actually listen to the men we date? In this episode we talk about hormones, bonding, equal hugging and a host of other dating dilemmas. Are you a demisexual? Or how do you know your body likes another body?
What messages did you get as a child about your body processes? What can you make other bodies do just by your presence? Let's laugh about body processes, and listening to your body. Bodies are f***n smart! What else do we talk about? Roadtrips, weddings, vows and secrets. It's a wander. As usual.
We are in a culture of distractions. How do we choose what's a good distraction and what's not? What are the choices that contribute to us and which detract? How many of you are putting off getting your taxes done? And what does that create? This and more as we laugh ourselves through another episode of Laugh It Out.
A playful conversation about finding humor in everything, and how that contributes to the body. A stimulant to the Vagus nerve that begins in the throat and goes down to the cervix. Laughter and sex go together! So of course we had to talk about Yoni Bliss, a homeopathic vaginal tonic created by Michele Brookhaus, and what it means to have a happy Yoni. Listen in and learn. ;)
A discussion about dreams and what they can tell us about ourselves and what we believe. Sometimes we make choices from beliefs that don't serve us right now. Or we make hum drum choices thinking that just by participating minimally we'll get something out of the thing we just chose. Whether it's a program or a date, sometimes you Just have to Swipe Left.
Small talk and the weather. Why do we talk about the weather so much? Endings, boundaries and pain. What's true? What's necessary? Another funny conversation about REAL life and what it looked like then and now. Choosing for you without making others wrong. Hey, we're deep. Deep and funny.
A hysterical conversation about getting out there, dancing and not waiting. How often do we wait to do things? Stop it! And what informs who we are and what we wear and why? Barbie being a big influence on our lives. Take off the limitations that disguise you. You'll have more fun.
From 120% happy to the places you are being superior without knowing it. Wander with us in the conversation about creating your future with a Future Map, making others happy along the way. What happens when we do things differently and just recognize that we are not broken, and we don't need to fix anything even when other people are mad at us. Join in the merriment and see if you aren't 120% happier just by listening.
When Michelle was a little girl her dad used to ask her this question all of the time. It made her soooo mad! Today, she likes it. We talked and laughed about depression (does that sound sick?) and talked about where our souls want to take us. (Book reference: The Soul's Code by James Hillman.) Oh yeah, and it's still winter in Bellingham, so we had to talk about that too.
Snowed in, boredom, dating and expectations. We laugh about how much snow there is here in Bellingham WA. We are bored and stir crazy today. We have both lived in places with a lot more snow, and are adjusting to what it means to live in a place where you can't actually drive in this icy slush. Join us in the chaos and laughter today.
