What we're about

Hi Bliss Seekers!!

"Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls." -Joseph Campbell

This group is focused on inspiring one another to not just talk about living our bliss, but actually doing it! Life is too damn short!!

I'm a relationship + empowerment coach for women with a speciality in helping those who are trying to find freedom from an unhealthy relationship — whether that be with a romantic relationship, family member, or anyone else. I also work with stepmoms and couples who are having to co-parent with a narcissist. So... as you can guess... I deal with some "heavy" topics in my work — so LIVING MY BLISS! and being present with my enjoyment in life has become especially important to me!

We'll be scheduling some super cool get-togethers - such a great way to meet like-minded people who are on the same wave length. If you have some fun ideas or would like to become a Meetup Organizer for me, please let me know! I haven't really had time to plan events in recent years. Focus must be on empowerment, enjoyment, inspiring one another, personal growth, etc.

Let's all step our of our comfort zones together and meet new people who already have common interests. No longer trying to convince friends or family to do things with us that they're not excited about (like I used to do)... instead making the effort to meet new people who already have the same passions or interests.

New experiences are the spice of life, aren't they?

I originally joined Meetup because I had this strong desire to learn how to dirt bike ride and couldn't find anyone who would do it with me. And now almost a year later — thanks to the Dirt Biking Meetup Group I joined — I've taken classes, done road trips & camped in the desert, and have a bunch of new amazing friends. What an awesome experience and journey it's been!

So I've started my own group... based on a bunch of my random and sometimes off-beat interests. I'm letting go of what people may think of me. I'm honed in on experiences that inspire me or things to do that I've always wanted to cross off my bucket list.

Let's do it together and push each other to live our lives to the fullest!

Anything That Pops Into Our Crazy Brains!

Living Our Bliss! is a place for like-minded, supportive people to come together and form friendships, it is not a dating group. We want everyone to come to events and share your personal Bliss with all of us. Therefore, if we feel that your reasons for joining this group are not in alignment with the intentions and purpose of Living Our Bliss!, we will remove you. We are striving to keep this group as a safe and happy place for people to come together to form long-lasting friendships. And, we intend to keep it that way.

I'd love to see as many like-minded people as possible in the group and I'd love to hear your ideas too!! If you join the group, please message me about meet-ups you'd like to organize.

We're looking forward to meeting ya soon ♥ ♥

Virtual Stepmom Support Group: Freedom from Co-Parenting with a Narcissist

**If you have anyone in your life who has been struggling in her relationship with a man who has children (and you are facing a dysfunctional co-parenting dynamic with the other bio-parent), please share this virtual Meetup with her!**

This VIRTUAL support group is here to empower your journey of loving a man with kids. Women supporting women. I don’t think anyone can understand the depths of this journey until they’ve walked in these challenging shoes (especially if you're dealing with a high-conflict and/or personality disordered biological mother). I get it. I’ve lived it.

**LET OUR GROUP BE YOUR SUPPORT SYSTEM.**

I support women who are in the Stepmom role either dating, in a committed relationship, or are married to a man who has children! If you're facing unhealthy co-parenting relationship, this kind of reality requires an entirely different set of skills compared to your average blended family (which can be challenging enough on its own). I've spent many years developing step-by-step measures for disentangling from an unhealthy co-parenting dynamic in my own life (while also studying under the best experts in the field which includes therapists, coaches, and high-conflict specialists). With a lot of commitment and hard work, my partner and I together were able to build our energetic "fortress of protection" around us, one brick at a time. Our success came down to building the skills together as a team to contain the negative influence we were unknowingly allowing one person to have on our lives. Our relationship and household now belong to us.

Freedom from Chaos Support: (https://maikomichelle.com/freedomfromchaos/).

**IMPORTANT DETAILS**

•These meetups are for women who are with men who have children and are in the midst of a dysfunctional and/or high-conflict co-parenting dynamic. These meetups are only for women who are willing to do the work it will take to contain the drama and negativity. (We have other stepmom meetups for ladies who are just wanting to get together with other women but aren't necessarily dealing with a co-parent who is toxic and possibly a narcissist).

*There is a $130 charge for a two hour VIRTUAL gathering and is limited to a small group of five (WE MUST HAVE 5 LADIES CONFIRMED FOR THE MEETUP TO HAPPEN). Please RSVP NO LATER THAN 2 weeks before each Meetup — the earlier the better so we can confirm that it'll be happening! We'll be meeting in Zoom the first Wednesday each month — after one gathering we can decide if our group would like to meet again. Transformation takes time and won't happen in just one get-together — but your peace and happiness is worth the time and effort!

*If this day/time doesn't work for you, please email me directly at [masked], and I may change the time or start another group around your availability.

•Please share this Meetup with anyone you may know who could use support right now. I remember crying at night and desperately searching for anyone who might "get it." Googling things like: "Should I stay in a relationship with a man who has kids?"... "What do we do if the kids' mother seems hostile and crazy?

DON'T SUFFER IN SILENCE ANYMORE... THERE IS HOPE!

Let's sit down and share experiences. We CAN carve out the life and relationship of our dreams despite having to deal with an emotionally abusive co-parent. However, nothing changes until something changes!​ It takes a lot of relationship work and personal growth to shift patterns that are unhealthy and toxic. Stop suffering because you and your partner are the target of one person's unprocessed emotional chaos.

ONLINE Challenge - Set your Top 5 Intentions to accomplish in 2021!

**Please note that this is an ONLINE challenge. There is no location for this challenge.**

It's that time again... time to start re-evaluating and raising the bar by doing the things that will get you closer to living the life you picture while daydreaming...

How do we get that life? By not only setting goals, but by actually believing we are worthy of that life!! That comes with personal work, introspection, and surrounding ourselves with people who push us to evolve and step outside of our comfort zones.

What intentions do you want to manifest for yourself within the next 6 months? What's on your Bliss Bucket List for 2021?

Jot down your Top 5 specific goals that you would like to accomplish by June 30, 2021... and then start working toward them!

We are putting our intentions out to the Universe together - that's powerful stuff!

https://www.meetup.com/Living-our-Bliss/photos/31344655/495566607/

We'll be doing a "touching base" Living our Bliss! event mid-year for everyone to come together and share what they've accomplished and what they want to further work on for the following 6 months to end 2021 with a bang!
