Failure’s Prevention 101

Be fierce

Be survivor

Be the fighter through and through

Take a deep breath and command your adrenal responses by not letting them to control your judgement.

Take three slow exhalations letting go any adversity that is trying to ambush you by fooling your mind with surrender temptation.

Last but not least;

JUST BREATHE!

With love and always from the light,

How to join the spokes together in a wheel…

We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the center hole tthat makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house, but it is the inner space that makes it livable. We work with being, but not being is what we use.

Namaste 🙏🏻

Meet your compass within your Soul.

” When looking for the tree of truth in a forest of illusions…

The only reliable compass is one’s soul” -Enza Currenti

Our Persona is what we would like to be and how we wish to be seen by the world through our physical body.

The Ego is what we are and know about… consciously.

For instance sometimes the Ego manages to make and keep people spiritually blind.

We all come from love and divine light.”

Our compass within this forest of illusions is what and how we can do to start getting ourselves out of the self- trap with humility and right judgement.

A physical, energetic, emotional and spiritual cathartic process that eventually will bloom from the deepest mud…a beautiful Lotus Flower shining a healed and redemptive Soul.

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. (1Corinthians13:12)

With love and always from the light.

The Seed Of Resilience and Resurrection.

We have learned through history that our Master Jesus’s ministry was shared through active miracles in order to sustain his teachings and divine descending.

There was something very interesting about the way he encouraged the apostles and other followers.

The communication through parables such as;

• If you love only the people who loves you, why should you receive a blessing?

If you do good only to those who do good to you, why should you receive a blessing?

Even sinners do that.

• Love your enemies and do good to them without expecting something in return… Only then you will receive a good reward.

• Give without expectations and you will receive a good reward.

• Whoever forgives little, shows only little love.

What he actually meant through his teachings is that the seed is the word of GOD.

That to some the kingdom of God comes by means of parables so they may look but not see and listen but not understand.

As such, the seeds that fell along the path stand for those who hear, but the devil (known by some contemporary schools that study the human’s mind , as the unconscious manifestation from an imbalance on the EGO) overcomes and takes the message away from the heart in order to keep our soul from believing and being saved.

The seeds that fell on rocky ground stand for those who hear the message and receive it gladly but they have no roots, they believe only for a while and when the time of testing comes they fall away.

The seeds that fell among thorns stand for those who hear the worries, the riches and pleasures of this life crowd in and choke them and their fruit never ripens and the seeds that felt in good soil stand for those who hear the message and retain it in a good an obedient heart and they persist until they bear fruit.

The Kingdom of Heaven is within our heart, and that took our Master Christ to a crucifixion, but when the seeds are felt in good soil standing for those who hear the message and retain it into the chamber of an open and obedient loving heart, without surrendering at the end of the tunnel the fruit to bear is the resurrection into the light, in other words a sheltering shield full of resilience.

Dedicated to the resurrection of our Master Christ and the current presence of his divine auric energy.

Happy Easter and Resurrection Sunday to everyone with love and always on the light.

Prayer of Letting Go 🕊

To Forgive is not as smooth as it sounds, I know…

Is not the most lovable inner process, moreover when doing it for ourselves. Sometimes it’s better and smarter to do so, whether there has been an apology or not.

Now, did anyone apologize to Jesus at the cross? Moreover, before he asked our Father:

“Forgive them, for they not know what their doing.”

Returning to our contemporary time, when feeling ready to embrace forgiveness, there is a beautiful outcome as reward:

Letting go and moving on.

When letting go, (sounds like a surrender or defeat), however there is actually the opposite happening.

There is surrender of attachment and attachment is the favorite food of the EGO (Edging God Outside),

AKA The Shadow based on Dr. Carl G. Jung’s legacy to understand the human mind, and as such to the mental health field.

When there is forgiveness it brings self healing by activating our inner skill of resilience.

Resilience allows the moving on process which will take you to a higher self version by accepting the past experience as one of your best lifetime lessons.

During my physical recovery, I meditated with a prayer I will share.

And when I get the release from the Physiatrist (to get back into my advanced yoga practice, as a lifetime student, in the event that soon I will start facilitating without performing postures).

I will certainly write an “IT IS FINISHED”

Here is the Prayer…

If I have harmed anyone in anyway either consciously or unconsciously through my own confusion.

I ask their forgiveness.

If anyone has harmed me in anyway consciously or unconsciously through their own confusion.

I forgive them.

And if there is a situation, I am not yet ready to forgive.

I forgive myself for that.

For all the ways that I harmed myself, negate, doubt, belittle myself, judge or be unkind to myself through my own confusion.

I forgive myself.

Last but not least;

“Allow yourself to rest. Your Soul speaks to you in the quiet moments in between your thoughts.”

with light and love 💗

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?

Resilience?

Adversity?

Spirit?

Kindness?

Forgiveness?

Healing?

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 fools 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.

The Warrior Manifesto…

Once you are a Warrior… you will always be a Warrior and Unto U it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God ( Mark 4:11)

Happy Veterans tomorrow November 11, and everyday after tomorrow 

We are the Warriors of the light…

Saint Michael the archangel is the patron saint of soldiers and battles. He has provided protection to countless military personnel around the world for millennia. I’m not only dedicating this article to all the veterans that have sacrificed his lives in the line of duty and those who are still sharing their light with humanity. 

I’m in debt to Saint Michael for his constant protection and guidance to myself and this Operation Resiliency through Yoga.

He is also the patron of the dying. Undoubtedly he has interceded for the souls of many fallen soldiers, ensuring that they died in a state of grace before God.

A year and a few months ago, I was beginning this mission and after finding myself into a situation were I felt threatened by a dark angel I asked through prayers and meditation to God about a sign regards our safety and protection, that everything would be alright and clearance regards my fulfillment of my sacred contract, after I was born.

That same Sunday during the afternoon I felt a pebble hitting the window of the office I work at (which is very close to the Yoga classroom, I’ve been privileged to have available by my Chain Of Command, who has supported me through all this and to whom I’m very grateful for) and…

After that I walked outside and suddenly everything turned cloudy,  I realized about the sun facing south and a very strong wind made me look upwards and realize that Saint Michael ( the bouncer as I learned to call during my Certified Angel Intuitive training) he was up at the sky, holding the sword in below image, literally sending the salute and carry on soldier. 


Back at home I searched for the Archangel Michael Cards deck, that were part of my Certification as Angels cards reader and randomly picked a cards that gave me the message written by myself to the above image.

During and after meditation sections and even savasana, I have received approaches of the practitioners regards Saint Michael signs of his presence at the classroom and their houses.

So, to my Chain of Command up there in Heaven… thank you for your service and unconditional love with protection.

St. Michael is the angel who fought in the epic heavenly battle as recorded in Sacred Scripture; he is the leader of God’s army of angels and is responsible for having led the fight against Satan and his demons, sending them to Hell.

Search and read for The Holy Archangels: Their Identity & Mission for more details.
Because of St. Michael’s patronage over soldiers and battle, the men and women of the military have a special connection to him. As you were able to read with my previous experiences at work.

Many have given a St. Michael medal to their loved ones going overseas so that they will receive his protection. 

 St. Michael comforts our soldiers and guards them during those times they are serving our country, away from their family, friends, and the home they love. 

Many miracles have occurred in battle through the use of the St. Michael medal, and it has given courage to countless soldiers throughout history.

I remember once that my ex-husband told me about an experience he had while trying to jump (during his assignment to the 82nd Airborne Division from a C-130) and his parachute, was unable to open, he close his eyes and started to pray ( who wouldn’t) suddenly he felt something pulling the parachute’s string and it magically unlocked opening  and he opened his eyes and saw something on the sky within the clouds with white wings.

Last but not least 

Namaste 🙏🏻

My Sheltering Sunset Sky…



In gratitude to my divine light, and some earth angels like my uncle, who happens to  be a down to earth experienced doctor, I have to share with so much love (without being able to have enough words to thank him) that the love of my life ( my son) who is accomplishing his college education at Minnesota and in a blink of an eye found himself undergoing a concerning health situation last Friday.  

As a mother my world started to crumble with feelings of impotence and desperation however if it wouldn’t have been by Dr. Ramon Suarez, my son wouldn’t have been stable today breathing and recovering from an initial phase of pneumonia that could have brought severe consequences without not being attended through Dr. Suarez selfless humanitarian service.

Last but not least;

A physician once said “The best medicine for humans is love” Someone asked, “What if it doesn’t work? He said,”Increase the dose”

with love and light dedicated to 

Dr. Ramon Suarez and my auntie Carmin.

Thanks to both for all the love you have always unconditionally shared to me and Jean, since the day his heart started to beat inside my body.

I love ❤️ you both.
Namaste

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love…

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. (Psalm 143:8 )

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. (1 John 4:16)



Love like life 

flows through the heart, 

fill the thrill of the flow 

and say nothing… (Rumi)



Do you really yearn to find your way Warrior and beloved child from heaven?

Is it because you are willing to fulfill your sacred contract, dharma, divine or life’s purpose?

After a storm your heart will always question for deeper meaning.

Such as:

Why you were born?

For what purpose?

Well this is the moment when you must know that is love and love means passion within. 

That passion that sets your Soul on fire to fulfill your life’s purpose.

Love for what is truly alive if not a desicion to be opened instead of resistant, to be wild rather than comfortable so that at any moment we will be ready for the invitation of the Divine Beloved to become closer.

As we grow on our spiritual path, as well does our ability and desire to serve life, to serve love, to honor humanity (our brothers and sisters) and to make a contribution with that is unique to our existence here and ever after…which could glow only in this particular way through the quality of our own soul’s light ✨

Every light shines its own beauty and has a particular task to fulfill on the divine path of life.

Unfortunately pain and stress that shake our lives turning everything upside down distract us from keeping track of this dharma. However, there is a battle buddy to remind us by sweeping the dust away from our feet…and is called “our passion”. 

Don’t become disturbed by the illusion that with passion there are not guarantees of success, or that we may even be throwing away a stable and secure life to pursue our passion.

These are only fears of a modern society, so to speak fears only misplaced.

If the birds are given air in which to fly and plants are given light of the open plains, or darkness of the damp rainforest, based on their needs to grow, so it is humanity.

Every single beloved child of heaven has something within our hearts that means something to us. Whether it seems practical or the key for success isn’t the important thing here, it is that we are meant to be what we are…

To serve life faithfully from a place of honoring the truth of our nature…

What sets our soul on fire, to overcome adversity; to manifest and make happen what we genuinely feel passionate about and to allow for life to naturally support growth in accordance to our genuine nature.

When adversity arrives is not about bringing our genuine passions to life in the event that life will always support it and as such…

“It is in learning to let go of attachment as to how that happens. To liberate ourselves from the mental slavery of false expectations.” 

When we share our love and light without selfish agenda, we can truly share our divine light and  reinforce it with our passion.

Last but not least; 
“Open you heart and ignite your soul through the light of  your passion.”   (Semperlee Yoga)
