From My Higher Self, To Me, With Love

You are exactly where you’re meant to be, right here, right now. Not in the past, not in the future… Right here, right now, in this moment. It is only this moment. Yes, you are a spiritual being in a physical body, you are capable of perceiving non-physically, but in this current reality, in this particular moment of the Eternal Moment, your soul is co-existing and co-creating with your physical form, with your body. You must accept this; it would be delusional not to! The evidence is under your nose… Indeed, your nose is a part of the evidence. Therefore, be here, right now. Learn the lessons you came here to learn. Yes, you actually did choose to be born into a Catholic family. You chose all of your circumstances, and you are continuously creating your reality. You created this moment of writing knowing that otherwise your mind would burst; you wisely gave yourself this outlet. Trust that you are exactly where you’re meant to be and that you’re living exactly what your soul needs …

Lean On Me

I took myself to yoga today for the first time in several months. I chose to go on my own and purposely told no one about it. Could I endure it? Not physically, but mentally? I practiced yoga for many years in Argentina, but since being back in the US, I’ve had a hard time finding a class and an instructor I like. While this didn’t stop me from searching for the missing puzzle piece, it did make me lazy over time. Eventually, I arrived at the excuse of “I simply don’t want to do yoga as my main workout each week because I’m bored of it.” For the most part, I eliminated it from of my routine, with the exception of a special occasion for charity, a few poses I’ve always done before and after exercising and, of course, my headstands, because I love them. After much reflection, I finally understood the real reason behind my disenchantment with yoga: it wasn’t the practice itself, rather the quieting of my mind that seemed extremely daunting. …

We Are Free

They say they built the train tracks over the Alps before there was a train that could make the trip. They built it anyway. They knew one day the train would come… Any arbitrary turning along the way, and I would be elsewhere. I would be different. – Under the Tuscan Sun It will come. As you breathe in and out, shed all the layers that have been weighing you down. Let go of everything you pretend to know, and simply allow yourself to exist. Intoxicate yourself with this precise moment – nothing more, nothing less. Imagine yourself lighter, freer. Powerful. Not the kind of man-made power that destroys everything in its path, but the kind that our spirits are born with and bathed in: love. Embrace it, stop denying it. We all know it’s true. All of us have had at least one truly profound experience in our lifetimes which has taught us that love is all there is, love is all that matters, and that love can move mountains… Even if we’ve chosen …

Leaving

Boo, this one’s for you. Leaving does not mean “the end.” Leaving does not mean forgetting. Leaving does not mean putting aside everything you have lived together. Leaving does not mean the story is over. Life goes on, my dear, and it is up to you to decide how you will live it. Take a moment or two to feel whatever pain and sadness overwhelms you, yet rest assured that this too shall pass. You don’t have to decide your future right now. In fact, the future does not exist. It is a blank slate that you create with every second that tic-tocs its way past the clock, with each breath you inhale and exhale. Don’t lose hope. Don’t fall into society’s trap of thinking you will always be alone if you don’t conform to a specific mold. Don’t let your mind be burdened by the lies of those who have hurt you. More importantly, don’t lose yourself amidst the noise of human existence. You are so incredibly precious. You are so incredibly loved. All …
