  • Allana is from Canada
    • She hopped into her uncle’s 18-wheeler truck to go to Hollywood
    • She was good enough to dance, but she didn’t have the visa so she took a dancing job in Japan instead
    • That job helped her understand the sacredness and sensual divinity within her body
    • After 4 years of dancing, she met a guy who became her first husband
    • They moved to New York City and Allana went to Columbia University where she graduated Cum Laude
    • Everyone she spoke to in America was skeptical about the dancing career she had in Japan; Allana was so ashamed about it that she had to lie at times
    • They moved to Los Angeles where she didn’t feel out-of-place
  • Her marriage didn’t work out, even after counselling
    • She married her second husband when her mom was passing away
    • To fill the void of her mother, she rushed the process of getting married again
    • Unfortunately, she and her second husband divorced within the year; there was a 12-year custody battle for their son
  • The custody battle opened up a feminine power Allana never thought she had
    • She found her centered place of truth

  • Vulnerability is one of Giovanna’s issues that she deals with
    • Giovanna is in a place now where she is considering getting into a relationship again
    • If you derive your worth from the outside-in, you’re screwed
    • Derive 100% of your worth from the inside-out
    • People tend to be cruel to themselves
    • Allowance is the first step to vulnerability
    • You can resist to a point where you break
  • When people get into relationships with little parts of themselves, they accept themselves as a whole and they accept themselves unconditionally
    • Because we judge ourselves, we lock parts of our real self down
    • Nobody is going to love the real you if you don’t love yourself
    • You attract people like yourself – if you’re emotionally unavailable, you attract the same kind of person
  • The safest is being open ALL the way
  • Courage and humility are two things you need to find your way back home
  • Allana understands how it’s like to disconnect from ourselves
    • Either you learn to let go or it’s going to be done for you
    • Pole dancing taught Allana to not grip too loose or too tight in almost everything
    • Vulnerability is the way to the limitlessness embodiment of who we are
    • Vulnerability is what makes you sexy and irresistible
    • It’s what helps you trust yourself more
  • One gift of vulnerability is self-trust and trust in the universe—the path to that is through courage and humility
    • It takes great humility to admit that you need to heal something
    • Everything goes back to loving yourself completely with all those imperfections
    • After some heartbreak, Giovanna realized that she was OKAY and others need to realize they will be OKAY, too
    • When you go through the stages of vulnerability and get to a place of readiness, you’re going to be okay
  • Don’t forget to discern who you’re going to open up to
  • “A person has to earn the right to your vulnerability”
  • People have been taught that it’s safer to be in their head and that their body is a place of shame
  • “If you have been inappropriately touched in any way, the body remembers that”
  • “Be vulnerable to yourself”
  • Love yourself and allow the person who comes into your life, to love you in the SAME way
