Now, about that bizarre subject line…

Imagine you’d never tried an inflatable butt plug (or hell, put anything in your butt) and then one day, your partner slips one in during “sexy time”.

Yep. They’re a thing.

How do you react?

Do you moan with pleasure, curl your toes and dig your fingernails into the bed?

Probably not.

Remember, in our little hypothetical scenario, you’ve never put anything in your butt. No fingers. No dildos. And certainly no inflatable butt plugs 🍆

That means…

Instead of screaming with pleasure, you’re probably screaming…


In the world of nervous system healing and regulation, we would say that your system has gotten a little inflated activated 🤷‍♂️

In other words…

You’ve moved into a little bit of fight-or-flight energy.

Think about it.

You’re trying to “fly away” from the inflatable butt plug by getting it out of your ass.

This is the flight response in action.

It doesn’t literally mean flying away… though it can.

It can mean running away too.

And it can also mean procrastinating (ie. running away from the project you’re afraid of), not telling your boss or your partner what you really think of them (ie. running away from a conversation), not saying hi to that attractive dude or chick you can’t keep your eyes off or taking a butt plug out of your ass the second it goes in.

It’s a beautiful thing, this flight response.

It keeps us safe in an infinite number of ways.

The problem is…

For most of us, the flight response is all outta whack 😭

That means we run away from things (like the things I just mentioned) that generally aren’t dangerous (at least not like a tiger is dangerous).

It might mean we might find it hard to sleep, since our nervous system gets stuck thinking that there’s danger nearby, and hell, if there’s danger nearby, it’s not safe to relax into sleep. Enter: insomnia.

A wonky, over-sensitive flight response affects everrryyyyyythhhiiiiiiinnnnngg.

But it doesn’t have to.

You CAN heal a wonky flight response.

It just takes time.

But don’t look to meditation… or journaling… or gratitude lists… or breathwork… or any of the usual stuff people recommend for procrastination or insomnia or racing thoughts… because none of those things deal specifically with a wonky flight response.

That’s where Rageheart comes in.

Rageheart is a crash course in how to fix your wonky flight responses. You learn how to regulate your nervous system, re-calibrate your threat detection program and bring more ease, safety and joy to your days.

The more that happens? The more that beast inside you wakes up 💪😎

Sound good?

Sign up to Rageheart before the doors close on Sunday night (only 10 spots available):
