I was very fortunate to be featured on The LatinX On The Rise Podcast! I got to talk about the process of allowing ourselves to feel. While it’s amazing to scroll through a million positive and empowering memes, where is the room for the rest of it? The days that we feel like we need to be empathized with. I wonder if, “we’re drowning in positivity?” As we’re writing down our goals for this new year, let’s leave room to check in with ourselves.  Check it out here: https://latinxontherise.com/latinx-on-the-rise/life-is-not-a-self-improvement-project Relearn and transform your stories into powerful medicine.

Improving Your Life With Feng Shui

Improving Your Life With Feng Shui

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality.

A infographic by Helen O’Keeffe When deciding on the placement of furniture and other objects within the home, the question that we usually ask ourselves is ‘Does it look right?’. While this is certainly an important consideration, it ought not to be the only one. As advocates of Feng Shui will tell you, the location of items within a living space can affect our sense of wellbeing for better or for worse, depending on where they have been positioned. One might wonder how the placement of a sofa within the living room could possibly impact on one’s mood, but psychologically it does make a difference. When that sofa is dropped …

Are you more in love with what you know or what you don’t know?

Are you more in love with what you know or what you don’t know?

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Our ignorance outweighs our knowledge. Every time. Are you more in love, more attached, more defined by all that you know or everything that’s still out there? All the mystery? All the magic? All the unknown? All the “I don’t know”? There is far more beyond the horizon than what your eyes can see. How can we live in that space? What benefits exist to living in that space? “A persistent problem is a proper question not yet asked.” – Alan Watts   Relearn and transform your stories into powerful medicine.

Your Peace Is Inside You

Your Peace Is Inside You

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality.

The Hindu teacher Swami Muktanamda was asked why he didn’t work miracles. He replied, “I have no need to work miracles. The circulation of blood through my body is enough.” Nothing needs to be done.  Your peace is inside you ~ your light is inside you. You are already perfect ~ and there is nothing that you need to do except be you and accept yourself as you are right now ~ in this moment. “Stop working to gain something. As long as we practice in a goal-oriented framework, the harder we practice the more we reinforce that framework. As the Japanese author Keniche Ohmae said, “Rowing harder doesn’t help …

Attachment is NON negotiable need.

Attachment is NON negotiable need.

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Attachment, we all need it.  From birth, from our very first moments. Being that we humans are the most helpless creatures in the universe, without some sort of help and attachment we die. We die in the wild, we die in the city, we simply die without attachment. Following attachment. The next essential need is Authenticity. We must be authentic, we must receive this non negotiable attachment from an authentic place. Not a, “I need attachment from whoever will give it, so let me bend and shape and costume myself so they will love me,” place. Authentically we must receive attachment. Not change for it.

Are we are living from and in the past?

“It’s impossible to live present as long as you are in the past and you are always in the past if you need to be safe and keep yourself safe.” – Dr. Gabor Mate If you are trapped in the old stories that keep you safe.
