Draw your awareness to your breath and allow yourself to let go…

God is a comedian playing to an audience afraid to laugh… -Voltaire

Light is easy to love… It is from darkness where resilience is born.

Is there a really dark night for the soul?

Before Alice go to Wonderland, she had to fall.

Today you have 100% of your life left.

Adversity does not build character, it reveals it.

Bring your awareness to resilience and say goodbye to any dark night of the soul.

Allow yourself to let your light shine.

” The most important decision that you will ever make is to be on a good mood” – Voltaire

How To Set Yourself Up For The Long Haul…

It is so easy to leave our decisions to others and as such, the blame for self inflicted circumstances when unplanned events occur.

To crumble into a pile of rubble, fade and sob.

I hear common things frequently such as:

“I lost my father.”

” My family moved away.”

” My best friend has been stricken by illness.”

” I broke my leg and have been temporarily home bound (unfit for duty).”

We all have had or are currently dealing with some type of situation that make us look around in order to find hope in every new breath.

How do we take massive corrective action?

Nothing major…

Take baby steps, they work just fine.

It is the momentum of forward consistent progress what you should be aiming for.

β€’ Set yourself for the long haul, with deep roots.

As there will be tempests along the way; be ready and willing to be receptive. Discomfort might be undergoing, (which is understandable), but do not allow it to overcome your foundation or roots.

β€’ Embracing yoga and mindful meditation are examples of effective supportive tools from which you can plan ahead with.

I remember this movie of a boy… Every Sunday went to church with his mother, while his father went fishing.

One Sunday the boy said ” Dad, I want to go to your church.”

The boy went with his father fishing. They spooled the rod, stood all day in the lake.

Didn’t speak…

Didn’t catch anything…

And the boy said that he had never felt closer to his father.

Sometimes the only ten minutes you can set away for yourself can be when walking your dog, cooking (before the kids come home) and even a midnight jog.

Desist of turning on the TV at home in the morning or your car radio on the way to work. We create resilience at our own pace and in a way that will work for us.

Along your journey to achieve inner peace we sometimes forget the individuality of our persona.

If you want to make a change happen so to speak, it can happen; yet only by the power of our hand.

How To Bend Without Breaking, Towards Your Higher Self.

The blessing of a gift of greatness, to bend history itself is within each of us, as such can be worked to change small portion of events.

When there is awakening and display (without misuse) of such a gift, all those acts will join and be printed for improving history towards a better path for our present and future generations…

“Blessed are the hearts that can bend; they shall never be broken.” -Albert Camus

How To Fly With A Broken Wing.

“A true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart.”

What does it come to your mind, after reading the above thought?







Unconditional love?

Well, I would think about all of the above while pursuing to score a lifetime degree with Summa Cum Laude looking towards the process of ascension.

When I read ascension, I recall the phoenix, Master Jesus ascending after three days in hell.

What does it come to your mind? my friend…

I also recall a little girl growing, becoming an athlete, a mother, a Soldier and a spiritual warrior.

A resilience facilitator, a manager and a Yoga teacher.

A woman that believe that could teach wounded warriors, that had lost parts of their bodies (when required) without learning first how to fly with a broken wing.

Sometimes our ego full us into the trick that we can drive through the green light passing by a toll without paying, and when the going gets tough; there is no option than reverse your warrior, surrender and survive.

That will set you back into a position of learning better how to pick your battles carefully.

A week ago I had an unexpected accident while performing my duties within the military force.

The first thing that arrived to my mind was my responsibility for that matter and the Resilience through (Karma) Yoga Mission I started 1 1/2 yr ago.

I was released from an ER with referral to an Orthopedic Specialist.

My father who barely can drive ( due to his age and health condition) took me to that appointment.

Where I was wearing a shin splint brace, that had the right leg immobilized and due to my stubbornness and denial, I dared to fantasize that I would have gotten it removed and be sent to work the next day.

I even thought or pushed my mind to think that I would be facilitating yoga like a Wonder Woman episode during the eighties.

I did not want to accept the fact that with the fall, I had a severe sprain in my right ankle ligament and a strain on my muscle, fascia and tendon on my lower back.

Which in puertorrican rice and beans, meant 2 weeks in bed with a non attractive and very heavy cast that feels like the heaviest gigantic rock within our planet.

Keeping the right leg inclined over a cushion. Thank you!

Ironically I broke down in tears in front of the doctor, who didn’t even want to negotiate a walking boot.

And if you feel like smiling, you may do so because my friend there is even more drama…

I felt like I was falling into an abyss without bottom. Yes, I did!

I closed my eyes and saw everything dark. I most have been looking pretty bad when the doctor’s eyes became watery with my suffering.

I told him, I feel like a bird with a broken wing.

He told me meditate and ask the angels for guidance. I’m sorry but the only way I can get you back to your work and the yoga warriors is doing this. I cannot negotiate.

When dad was driving me back, incredibly I felt that I was even losing my faith. Poor dad he seemed so heart broken.

That evening I felt asleep listening to an Archangel Raphael guided meditation, trying to at least follow the doctor’s recommendation to deal with my emotional pain.

Moreover when feeling lonely having the people ( I love the most in this world) more distant than ever.

Because of life’s unexpected situations. That evening I had a vivid, lucid dream with our Divine Mother Mary.

It was able to see her, opening her arms with her motherly eyes shining with unconditional love.

Reminding me about what her son went through. And that no matter how dark our world may seem, light will prevail over any darkness.

That it was time to take a break and let the other teacher (my loving friend Ana) to return after an involuntary break, to work and activate her self resilience in order to overcome adversity from a storm, she had to face and that had broken her motherly heart.

Just as our Divine Mother went through, after watching her son being slaughtered through a Crucifixion.

The next day I woke up even embarrassed about the drama I had made at the doctor’s office the day before.

Wrote to a person (I love very much), you know… I think that you were right, something good must come out of this.

I thought…

First, because I have been a flow oriented person while facilitating yoga (I had always loved dancing) and even being able to do so, I was unconsciously forgetting about senior citizens population and completely physical disable warriors to slow my pace and facilitate even Chair Yoga and more restorative oriented yoga.

That way we all can learn together to release control and let ourselves be carried and nurtured by others.

Which is another type of yoga more therapeutic oriented and could provide the military community alternatives through physical rehabilitation process.

And that I am already planning to facilitate, after I get medical clearance.

I didn’t want to broadcast my personal situation, I’m a very reserved person with my personal life and most of the time I write based on others life’s experiences respecting their privacy.

But, my spiritual guides or Archangels ( like the Orthopedic recommended to meditate and pray) intuited me that I should open up and share my experience to the almost 9,000 viewers that read this blog and to whom I owe my deepest gratitude and respect by trying to become each day a better version of who I was yesterday.

Last but not least;

Courage doesn’t roar, sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I will try again tomorrow.
