FAREWELL 2019

Hey there beautiful Souls, today we are transitioning towards a new decade.

Let’s review briefly and without attachment to the past.

When you start to feel that things should have been better during 2019, remember the mountains and valleys that got you here.

Let me give you an example, yesterday I had to bury my beloved mother after a year of her health struggling. It was hard, very hard! Extremely heart breaking and painful. Moreover, she passed away the day after Christmas.

But her release from suffering, her eternal peace soothes a daughter’s sorrow.

Mountains and valleys in our lives do not show up by accident. They bring always lessons to learn. We will never be the same, but it’s our divine responsibility to pull it off in order to use those experiences as resiliency tools looking forward to find each day a better version of ourselves.

We most embrace our processes with accountability and without exposing others to any remaining collateral damage from our emotional baggage.

Look at yourself in a mirror…

You are not the same, you have grown and you are growing. You are breathing. You are living. You are wrapped in endless, boundless grace. And things will get better. There is more to you than yesterday.

I have learned a lot this year…

I keep learning that things don’t always turn out the way you think they should. Also that there are things that go wrong that don’t always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before.

I have learned that some broken things stay broken. And I have learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who loves you.

Note that 2020 will be a better chapter if we think positively. Let go of past mistakes. Make new friends. With kindness stay away from toxic people. Use our talents. Don’t hold back. Do good deeds. Be of service. Speak up for yourself and know your worth.

Semperlee Yoga wishes you a New Year sheltered with abundance of amazing opportunities, beautiful moments and joyful experiences.

May your positive actions and attitudes inspire others. May you be brave enough to take on and overcome rewarding challenges.

May you find yourself in high spirits and excellent health.

May you love with all your heart and find peace even in the most turbulent of times.

May the love you give find its way back to you multiplied.

And may you forever be filled with hope and strength necessary to make your dreams a reality.

Inspire to Aspire Before You Expire…

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given🎚

Hey there beautiful Souls. I couldn’t miss such a special date to thank you all, for your support to this blog.

Each day there are more beautiful souls subscribing through their emails and that is sort of a Christmas gift to anyone that is humbly trying to share some light.

Also I wanted to share the following thoughts regards today and its meaning.

Let us begin with how a pregnant woman feels having inside her womb a baby and as such her anxiety to meet someone that gives her the chance to feel two hearts instead of one but she cannot see until child’s birth moment.

It is a long journey of nine months and hilariously yesterday my son’s arrival (to spend the holidays with me) was delayed due to unexpected circumstances. I had not seeing him since his college graduation back in June.

I received a text from him telling “Mom I apologize if you have been waiting longer than expected, but there was a delayed out of my control.”

I replied to him Jean if I waited 9 months nurturing you inside my womb, feeling two hearts instead of one (without seeing your beautiful face) I can assure you, I am able to wait longer today!!

So just imagine what Mother Mary went through when she was expecting the son of God, hence the light of our world and to our hearts.

We celebrate the Advent (Birth) of Christ bringing us the following gifts.

Humility (he was born in a stable) and in order to forgive you need to become humble.

Forgiveness because in order to resurrect from any adversity during life it is required to forgive ourselves and others.

That is exactly what Jesus did after his crucifixion and I understand there will never be any adversity into our lives worst than his unique experience.

Unconditional love,

Actually, once while meditating with my Higher Power… I asked

¿What is the best medicine for a human’s Soul?

The answer was “The best medicine for humans is love…”

I asked ¿What if it doesn’t work? The answer was Increase the dose!

Then I realized that unconditional love one was of the strongest foundations during Christs ministry, which was energetically operating throughout the gifts and ministries of the Holy 🕊Spirit.

As such I will leave you with the following words…

The Advent Journey:

Hope becomes peace.

Peace becomes joy.

Joy becomes love.

Love becomes Christ🎚

Jesus is the gift that perfectly fits the size of every heart.

He is the light of our Christmas, the joy of our hearts and the hope of our world.

Last but not least;

Inspire to aspire before you expire…

Merry Christmas!

The Best Journey Within…

Hello there beautiful Souls, have you visualized your physical body thru an imaginary lens?

Well gently close your eyes, and bring your attention to your breath, bring your tongue towards the roof of your mouth behind the front teeth, begin to inhale thru your nose and when you exhale, begin to activate relaxation within. Now bring your attention to your forehead. Visualize your physical vehicle.

See your physical body as a product of this material dimension. It is created on earth using elements like carbon, hydrogen and calcium. It is vulnerable, it has limitations and a finite lifespan.

Your higher self has chosen to inhabit it to have experiences that the Spirit world does not offer. It is not the real you. What you see in the mirror is only a vehicle. The real you is perfect, limitless and eternal. It is connected to everyone and everything you see. The ability to contact your Guides and their knowledge is omnipresent, but you must do your part to access their wisdom.

How do we access their wisdom? Becoming receptive to this guidance which is your birthright, we are delivered to this life guarded by a celestial energetic team of Guides that includes a guardian angel, a departed loved one (some cases two), Archangel Michael is assigned to protect humanity, so we have this energy available to us when we need to connect to it and some people might have 2 archangels assigned for guidance and protection based on their Soul’s contract or life’s purpose.

The higher our calling the larger the team will be. Meditation, sitting in silence, and asking to receive advice during the dream state are all ways to establish contact with your higher self and Guides. Also thru meditation you can find your life’s purpose and Highest Potential.

What is Highest Potential?

Before going to this explanation I want to address something to make you think.

God sends power in humble packages; on the back of fool little children always, there’s no way to conceal it. 

Because they look harmless. 

Think about humbleness, and it’s congruency with power…at least for a minute.

Our highest potential is manifested when we act every moment (we recognize a choice is present), towards the best potential option (available) within the circumstances as an outcome.

Embrace this process, have no fear to sitting in silence enjoy that darkness as is the only way you will be able to see the light. For assistance in how to meditate go to this website menu and click on meditation benefits.

Last but not least;

Don’t be discouraged by the earthy distractions placed between you and your Guides. Practice developing this sacred relationship. You will find that life becomes much easier when you have daily communication with your Guides.

Namaste

Where ever life plants you… Bloom with grace.

Hello there, beautiful Souls. Sometimes the little things in life are more than enough. You bet they are. Nonetheless, when staring at a sunflower see how bright sunny and positive it spreads seeds of happiness.

What I mean is that you can always choose to rise, shine and hold your head high. Flowers grow back, even after they are stepped on.

If a sunflower chooses to face the sun every single day, you can choose to face the sun as well and instead of holding yourself back in the dark.

Keep in mind that the smallest act of love should begin with self love. Self love is the kindest gift you can shelter your heart with hence someone else’s heart.

Last but not least, darkness is our nature, but the journey for light echoes from our Soul.

Namaste

If there is a will, there is a way…

Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change…

What is intention?

It is an aim or plan.

In the medicine and holistic fields is the healing process of a physical or emotional wound.

During the integration of a yoga class, we (the teachers) have the intention to guide the practitioner to allow him or herself to let go of anything that is not in alignment to that peaceful moment targeted to reconcile body, mind, and spirit.

To take a look at their inner selves in order to identify the reason that took them ( in the first place) to that yoga class.

Then to allow themselves to set that thought as the aim that will keep them focused with commitment to keep their poise during challenging poses just at it should be in the midst of adversity through our lives.

In other terms to be able to fall and bounce without breaking.

To be resilient.

It is important always, always…

Quoting Wayne W. Dyer,

“When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.”

Also that with everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift.

Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.

The most important here is to keep flexibility and humility in order to recognize that although we are not perfect, that is not a license to project any self’s frustration over others and become hurtful with others at work, out at the streets or with our loved ones.

How do you identify this while in a yoga class?

When arriving to your mat (carrying the burdens of a day), and we cannot allow ourselves to set that intention, because we are giving power to a monkey mind to take charge intercepting our productivity and growing process.

Not only that, getting ourselves into a balance posture and finding a drishti or gaze (while in yoga and life) becomes harder than getting into the pose itself.

These are the moments when the power of intention takes place with empowerment.

Also remember that passion is a feeling that tells you: this is the right thing to do. Nothing can stand in my way. It doesn’t matter what anyone else says. This feeling is so good that it cannot be ignored. I’m going to follow my bliss and act upon this glorious sensation of joy.

Last but not least;

“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.”

Namaste 🙏🏼
