stop hating on millennials already

I used to nark on millennials- something I am not proud of, but I have had a change of heart recently.  Their lingo and music still makes me want to jab a q-tip in my ears, but that’s as far as I will let my adversity towards them go.  This generation is our future, and will pave the path of the future for the generation after that. These beautiful souls are living in the age where we are being called to question everything! They are becoming awakened to the energy that surrounds them, and they know deep in their gut, that shit is just not happening as it should be. They are starting to ask questions.  Discover different methods, explore various options… They help us see the gray matter in things that we have known for so long to be “black and white”. You want to make fun of them for switching jobs on the regular? I don’t blame them! They are embracing their true self and purpose and are realizing that their triangle personality …

Manifest Monday 8.20.18

This week, you are being called to Release and Surrender. Open your arms, and release the challenges that you’ve held tightly gripped within your hands. Open your hands, arms and . heart to love and assistance When we surrender to fear, control, anxiety and so much more, we finally allow ourselves to trust that our faith is in the hands of the Divine (or as I like to call it, universe).  Know that the universe is always guiding you towards the path that serves your greater good. We can choose to release those fears, surrender to what may or may not happen, and know that the universe is always on your side, so why not give it a little chat and say something like “Hey Big U, I could really use our help here- I would love for X to manifest, and I would appreciate your guidance and support in how to make that happen. Thank you” And let it go, man. Pay attention to signs, “coincidences”, and let yourself be guided by your intuition …

Stop Playing Small

You are playing small, and this is your permission to stop that shit! Since the day you were born, you have been destined for a life of growth, learning, fun and love. This life is meant to be enjoyed and fulfilled as you see fit. You were born for greatness. So stop playing small because you are bigger than what you think you are. Stop wasting time making decisions that do not serve your greater good and that make you feel weak or unworthy. Decisions that kill your confidence and self esteem. We keep ourselves small because we are fearful. We are fearful of old patterns and stories , and the ego holds on to those stories to keep us small and safe. When we stay small, we live our lives with very little connection to our purpose and intuition. We live our days not honoring our true path and destiny in life.  We do not honor our life purpose and we rob ourselves of a lot of experiences that serve our greater good. So let’s …

{Identity} The story of validation

Certifications, job promotions and titles. I have achieved these over and over again. All the while, never really asking myself if it was what I really wanted. It felt good to achieve these goals and feel successful, but what I have soon realized was that it was never out of passion.  I just knew it was good to achieve them . It looked good to achieve them. It made me feel validated. I never realized it then, but validation was something I craved.  I needed it to feel like I mattered. It was my way of proving to those around me that I was here.  I was valuable. I was present. I had purpose. I am worthy.  I matter. Once I realized this pattern, I knew it was important to figure out when it started and how it even came about.  I could trace this need for validation as far back as I can remember. In our traditional Hispanic culture, the voices, ideas and thoughts of children are merely celebrated.  This is most evident if …

Being Your Own Guru {identity}

The more I keep hearing “Be your own guru”, the more it continues to resonate with me. Hard. Who better knows what is best for you than….you?! Sounds like a no brainer, right? However, if you are or were anything like I was for the past two decades, you might feel as though this concept was unreachable.  Foreign, even. I had very little connection to my true identity and purpose. All I knew was that I had very little self confidence, and seeking approval and validation from others made me feel better. I based my life decisions and behaviors based on that. A total people pleaser, which is really just a nice way to say “a total pushover”. Man I used to get so mad when people would call me a pushover, but that is what I was because I didn’t know anything else. So how could I have possibly become my own guru if I didn’t even know who the heck I was?! It has taken A LOT of deep healing, soul searching and digging …

{journaling} Facilitating your own healing

I always used to be obsessed with journals. I guess it was the universe’s way to tell me to start writing down my thoughts and feelings on paper so I can facilitate my own healing. However, I would never write in them.  I would probably fill out a page, at most, but then leave it at that.  I couldn’t even re-gift it if I wanted to because I had already used one sad, lonely page.  Yet the collection of journals continue to grow.  For the past three months I have been undergoing some deep energy healing and it was benefited me tremendously, but nonetheless it’s still scary and doesn’t feel good, and I can’t help but wonder if that’s why I never wrote in all of those journals I have collected over the years. I think I just never really wanted to come face to face with my wounds and hurt from the past. Alas, I’m a little more than halfway through my first REAL journal (read: committed to writing more than just one page) …
