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 🙏🏼

How to return leading the pack, after being thrown to the wolves…

If you want to give birth to your true self, you will have to dig deep down into your own flesh and let your soul howl.

It might require a leap of faith and trust that if you turn your head off, your feet will take you to that intention as such.

Be a warrior of love but allow yourself to follow these steps

• Do not allow others mistake your gentleness for weakness or your timeless grace for vulnerability.

• keep in mind that having to pull out broken arrows from your heart is a self accountability process that doesn’t belong to new people that arrives.

• Everybody and every experience we meet and embrace are meant to bring us a lesson, which will improve our journey towards a higher self. For instance learn to see those broken arrows in a positive way so you can use the sharp edges to carve a path straight into a new dawn while bleeding your dreams to life.

• Never stop thinking that you are a warrior worth more than your weight in gold.

• You are the guardian of your own light, so do not allow anyone to dimm that light because of their lack of resiliency skills to coupe with their unresolved emotional business and hence projections.

• Keep your spirit young and nurture it with forgiveness and unconditional love, starting with yourself.

You can also repeat this affirmation every morning for 21 days in order to feel empowered enough to allow yourself to let go and move on from anything that feels resistant to your process.

“I had fought a thousand battles… And I am still standing…

Have cried a thousand tears… And I am still smiling… I have been broken, betrayed, abandoned, rejected,

But I still walk proud…

Laugh proud…

Live without fear…

Love without doubt…

This person within my body is a beautiful soul.

But most of all is humble enough to embrace her (his) own light and transmute any darkness.”

Last but not least;

“Your heart is as big as an ocean and will always be able to face any fear.”

Namaste

Open your heart and allow yourself to enjoy a sunrise.

Begin this day with a rainbow of joy in your heart. Allow the rising sun paint a smile on your face. Remove all clouds of doubts and feel God’s gift of a new day, new hope, new life and new opportunities.

On this road called life you have to take the good with the bad, smile with the sad love what you got, and remember what you had. Always forgive, it is okay not to forget that way, we can learn from our mistakes. People change things go wrong but just remember that the rides goes on.

No matter what you do someone will have something negative to say. Try not to take it personally. People judge and criticize other people’s lives when they are not happy with their own… Just know you don’t need anyone’s approval to be happy.

The sunrise, of course doesn’t care if we watch it or not. It will keep on being beautiful even if no one bothers to look at it.

I wish you beautiful Soul, a morning of love pleasant memories, a morning of little things to smile about, peace and happiness within your heart.

I humbly ask the Divine to send you a sheltering angel so nothing can harm you, also to bring you courage during fear, wisdom during confusion. And when you pray may the Lord in the Heavens hear you and answer you with signs of what happens above happens below.

Namaste
