It’s About Freaking Time!

Last summer I spent a week in Northern California with television host Rebecca Kimbel, spending hours each day interviewing and talking between interviews. Like me, Rebecca grew up in the A.U.B. but was privy to information that I didn’t have because of her Allred heritage. As a commoner, my information was second-hand.

Rebecca and I laughed later that we should have been recording our off camera 550173_twisted-treeinterviews because they were often very funny as well as insightful. I how I wish we could create a family tree – what a twisted mess that would be!

And yes, there was gossip too…. Wow, did I learn a few things about a few people that I never knew. Once again I discovered that men I once worshiped made less than admirable choices.

So, why is it about freaking time? I finally got around uploading ALL of the interviews!

Rebecca sent me a stack of CD’s with our interviews for me to upload onto You Tube. I put the polygamy interviews on my Polygamist’s Daughter You Tube and all of the rest on my official Victoria Reynolds You Tube channel.

I’ve sorted them into an easy playlist of television interviews (a few are not with Rebecca) for you to follow and keep track of.

7 of the videos are based on the principles in my Transcending Fear book, so they are a nice little bonus for you readers out there.

Each video is a teaching video of approximately 28 minutes and have been edited for television episodes. So, grab a cup of coffee, head to my You Tube channel, and get ready for some witty banter conversation and heart-centered learning.

Until next time, be Fearless, Fabulous and Free!

Ex-Polygamist or Polyamorous Woman Wanted

Yes, you read it right.  I am looking for a woman.

I have been writing this blog for the past five years whenever I feel it tugging at me.  Sometimes I am so inspired that I write more than once a week and sometimes there is a lull of several months.  I write when I feel inspired to write or when something strikes me as so important that I need to write about it. And, I write when I can squeeze it in between other projects and everything that it means to be a wife and mom.

At the beginning of this year I made a commitment to myself to connect with my readers more often and I am now always on the hunt for new content. Part of this commitment is to extend my writing beyond just my own perceptions and include interviews with other people who have experienced polygamy, spiritual abuse and women’s worth issues.

Religiously coerced polygyny I understand. I know far too well the gun that is pointed at women’s heads that forces them to share their husband.  A choice based in duress isn’t much of a choice.  

What I want to understand is why a woman who doesn’t need to share her husband or lover would make that choice. It is a choice based in lack of self-worth?  Does she believe that it’s as good as she is going to find? Did she make the choice out of feeling pressured by someone? Was there a fear-based belief driving the lifestyle choice? What kind of woman would invite another woman into her partnership? What kind of woman would invade someone else’s relationship? How is this any different than swinging? How is it any different than a man having an affair that the wife knows about and willingly allows?

The reason that I am looking for an ex-poly is that I want to understand all sides of the story. I want to know why she chose to engage in the lifestyle and why she chose to exit it. I want someone who is passionate enough about her perspective that she isn’t afraid to spend a few minutes on camera to share her story with you in her own words. Why, because I think all women deserve to know the truth behind the lifestyle choice. And, I think that the world needs to understand the difference between polygamy and polyamory.

The word polygamy has been thrown around lately as the new in buzz word for open relationships. Polygamist relationships and polyamorous relationships are very different things. For starters, one is legal, while the other is not, and for very good reason. 

One last thing. This needs to be a woman who lives in Southern California. Finding someone who lives a secret life has been my biggest hurdle thus far. Ex-polygamists are easy enough to find in Utah but not so much in California. Here in SoCal I suspect the lifestyle and the openness are more prevalent than other parts of the country, the issue is where to begin looking. As far as I know their aren’t any polygamist bars – that’s actually quite the oxymoron considering most polygamists don’t drink. I’m specifically looking for a woman close to home because I would love to spend some real time with her, heart-to-heart, woman-to-woman, talking about women’s worth, love and relationships.

 bonus1I am also offering my Evolve VIP Mentoring Program, a one-one-one coaching program valued at $5,000, to whoever this well-deserving woman is, as compensation for her time and willingness to share on camera.

If this is you or you know someone who is, please send me a personal email to Victoria@VictoriaReynolds.com with the subject line: Ex-Polygamist or Polyamourous Woman Wanted.
