I feel a strong devotion for the Divine. *
This has been so for as many years as I can remember. Prayers, meditations, mantras are parts of my daily life and practice, no matter where I am or what my day looks like. *
I turn to each manifestation of Divine energy to answer my clients’ questions, to express my gratitude for the many blessings sent my way, or to feel the closer to something bigger than myself. *
My connection to Spirit is a give-and-take, a friendship with a faithful friend with whom I exchange all aspects of my life. *
A form of Spirit I turn to when I need to tap into my inner power and strength is Hanuman, one of the most beloved figures in the Hindu pantheon of Gods. *
You may have seen Him pictured as half monkey/half human and that’s exactly how He is: He combines the best of animal, human being, and God. He is here to remind us that the Divine holds us in an embrace much greater than we even imagine and that every human being is nothing but a reflection of the Divine. *
Do you feel connected to the Divine?
Do you have a spiritual practice that makes you feel close to Him/Her?
I'd love to know.

Lately this wave of job offers and teaching position came over me. Feeling overwhelmed and honored at the same time. Always this feeling to please everybody, not saying NO to anything, crossing own boundaries and limits in the fear of rejection. Funny enough I am put in similar situations over and over again, like I have not learned my lesson yet... My moonstone Mala is from @spirit.of.eden
. Do you know about the supportive characteristic of moonstone?
✨ If you're facing issues of stability, whether it's emotional or otherwise, the Moonstone reminds us of the night sky and its steady cycle of darkness giving way to light.

. Так что вот вам я: в бикини, с улыбкой до ушей и классным загаром - бесстыже счастливая в свадебном путешествии 5 лет назад.😜И абсолютно не подозревающая о том, что нас скоро занесёт жить в Германию, какой чудо-карапуз Виктория появится у нас и что после стольких лет тренировок, лишь к полутора годам дочери у меня, наконец-то, хоть немного, проявятся кубики пресса.🙈😂
А какими вы были 5 лет назад?😀
. So here I am: in a bikini, smiling broadly, tanned, shamelessly happy on a honeymoon journey 5 years ago.😜Back then I could not even imagine that we’d move to Germany, we’d become parents of such a wonderful kid, and that only after becoming a mom, my abs would finally start to show up.🙈😂
What about you 5 years ago? 😀

Когда наш ум, под давлением социальных установок, заставляет верить, что с нами что-то не так, потому что мы не как все, или у нас нет того, что, по мнению нашего ума должно быть и определяет успешность индивида, наш мозг активно начинает вырабатывать гармони стресса, которые, уже на физиологическом уровне, создают блоки и зажимы в нашем прекрасном теле, заставляя его болеть и увядать!
Вывод: НЕ ПОДДАВАЙТЕСЬ на провокации ума и общества! Не ведитесь на поводу грусти и сомнений! Вы прекрасны! Вы уникальны! Вы здесь, чтобы радоваться жизни и кайфовать от «игры», для которой нам дали опыт в человеческом теле! Заботьтесь о своих мыслях и о качестве поступающей информации. Читайте книги, слушайте хорошую музыку, учите стихи, занимайтесь упражнениями, ешьте правильную пищу, чтобы ваше тело и ваше сознание были прекрасны и гармоничны. Творите свою жизнь! Вы - божественны! Вы - созидатели!

Within 36 hours I’ll be landing at one of the most romantic heart throbbing places. It feels like a homecoming to me, the longtime friends, culture, the architecture, the foods, the elegance, the sophisticated feel, the language. Something happens to you when you cross borders and walk through gates into the unknown. It fills my heart, it’s beyond explanation. All I know that it will be a heart shakti burst.

✨You are the creator ✨
The more I become clear with the life and mission that is living itself through me, the more I realize how essential it is to choose where I place my energy. If it’s not a strong YES, it’s a NO.
This week I made space for self-care with a restorative yoga intensive with @janetstoneyoga
. So grateful for both of your wisdom. Thank you 🙏🏼 ♥️
What can you say no to this week in order to create a YES that is in alignment with your life vision?
Happy Friday friends ♥️✨🦋

(ESP🇨🇴⬇️)This past months that I’ve been back in my home country (Colombia) have been filled with introspection and integration. Rooting down connect to where I came from in an energetic plane. Honoring my blood line and honoring the story of a conflicted but soulful country which I carry within me. This is where my Higher Self decided to incarnate in this lifetime and I’m choosing to be open to connect deeper and also to break patterns and heal wounds that have been passed on. ✨ May the inner work be reflected on my ancestors and future generations. 🙏🏼
Making the most out of my last few days here in paradise and connecting to the sacred energy of La Sierra Nevada 🏔
Estos últimos meses que he estado de regreso en mi país ha estado llenos de introspección e integración. Enraizándome para conectarme de donde vengo desde el plano energético. Honrando mi sangre y honrando la history de un país con conflictos pero con mucha alma que cargo dentro. Aquí es donde mi Yo-superior decidió encarnar en esta vida y yo elijo estar abierta a conectarme aun más y también elijo romper patrones y sanar las heridas que han sido transmitidas ✨ Que el trabajo interior sea reflejado en todos los ancestros y las futuras generaciones. 🙏🏼
Disfrutando mis últimos días en el paraíso y conectando con la energía sagrada de La Sierra Nevada 🏔
The Fairy Godmother totally stole my thunder! Lol! She came up and posed in front of me! It was so funny 😂 Very cool Fairy Godmother!
QUESTION OF THE DAY❗️🤔
Has anyone ever stole your thunder❓
“There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen.” Rumi
One of those voices is our bodies! My Vinyasa Flow classes this week tuned into this concept: listening to and honoring what our bodies tell us. One of the poses we tuned into this during was Supta Virasana, or Reclined Hero's pose.
Standing on your knees with legs together (or knees slightly apart) and the toes of the feet resting on the ground, press into and glide your thumb down the middle of your calves (swipe photos to see this) and start to sit the hips back inside the feet, so that heels come to the outsides of the hips. Herein is the first place to take note of the body's voice: How do your knees feel? If they're telling you to take heed, definitely listen! Place a block under your sit bones. You can also come back up onto your knees and place a thin rolled cloth in the crease of your knee to create a bit more space in the bend. Once ready, sit the hips back. You're now in Virasana.
Here comes another cue of your body's voice: slightly tuck your tailbone under towards your thighs and slowly start to lean backwards, coming down flat onto your forearms. Your quads (upper legs) and lower back will let you know how close to the ground they want you to go. With its permission, perhaps your upper body will make its way a bit closer to the ground. If you come flat, straighten out your arms alongside your thighs. Tune into what your knees and back are saying and then consider bringing your hands into prayer or up over your head, reaching for the opposite elbow.
Once ready, use your forearms and core strength to gently lift your chest.
Among other benefits, Supta Virasana helps stimulate your digestion, can strengthen the sacral region, and improves spinal flexibility.
In which ways has your body spoken to you today?

This is what Hellen Keller writes, “Security is mostly a superstition.
It does not exist in nature nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.
Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”
Let me ask you,
do you find yourself “stuck” in situations that you know- deeply in your heart- are taking you nowhere, are not helping you grow, prevent you from moving forward on your path... because of the sense of security that - you think- comes with them?
I know this emotional state because i used to be that person. The one insecure. The one fearful of taking that one last step to being who i really am, to do what i am supposed to do.
To feeling complete. ✨
I settled into the comfort of my unhappy securities and hung on to it as if my life depended on it. Because i thought it did! ✨
Until being settled wasn’t an option anymore. ✨
I tell ya, faith, a whole lot of inner work, and my inner guidance are what unstuck me. i know now that the feeling of security is just that - a feeling- ; because truth is, it can change at any moment, unexpectedly, for no reason at all. ✨
So if you are clinging on to whatever because of this precarious sentiment i urge you to step into your inner power!
Break free of what holds you back. ✨
The uiniverse has your best interest at heart.
You are enough.
You are loved. ❤️

Tattoos and commitments:
what do they have in common?
And everything. 👐🏼
Nothing because the first ones are permanent marks on your skin, your body. 👐🏼
Everything because both of them
Well, yes! Something tattooed on your body will stay with you permanently that’s the purpose of getting one- isn’t it-? 👐🏼
And commitments... are they a forever kinda thing? Or is it that when the karma is over between you and whatever/whomever you are committed to everything falls apart and it’s time to move forward, uncommitted? 🤔
How do you feel about this? 🤔
Can you give me your definition of “commitment”? Or you can also post a pic of your tattoos as an alternative. 😉

Thanks For this Great Post, Check it out:
✨We are composed of such genius. ✨ 🌳
What if you trusted that all of the particles of learning that you needed from this experience had already integrated into your form?
You don’t have to worry about that last moment, or the one before. You can give trust to the earth and to your process, your sacred journey. In order to experience real joy and ease we must all experience our darkness and pass through the flames 🔥 There is no escaping it. Do you feel me? 🔥🔥🔥 This has been a year of growth and transformation for me: new relationship, professional opportunities, immigrating to the United States...🔥
Your integration is already happening beautifully. Trust in the intelligence of your inner knowing. Move forward as you are, open to spaciously receive what’s arriving, what’s being revealed in the newness of This Moment Now.
Sending you so much love and I hope you can feel it.

A little pottering in the kitchen this morning.... 👩🍳
Here's what I came up with!
It's a roasted sweet potato, leek and zucchini pie served with fresh hommos and a sprinkling of hemp seeds. The yellow glow comes from my love of all things turmeric and lemony. It's completely vegan and gluten free, and even more yummy the next day! You can pre roast any vegetable slices first, then just layer them up and top with a vegan batter made from pureed pumpkin, chick pea flour, nutritional yeast and almond milk. Then just pop it in a moderate oven until brown, season and add any freshly chopped herbs you have handy. Every meal I cook is experimental and varied according to what fresh produce I have available seasonally. Voila!!! 🙌😋 🍠 🥒👌🧡🍃

In Peruvian Shamanism, the hummingbird, Sewar Q’enti represents perception of the soul and embracing भक्ति bhakti, devotion. The hummingbird takes one on a quest, overcoming obstacles flying all the way from Canada to Chile and allows us to live at the level of the heart and myth. The hummingbird teaches us to embrace all experience as part of our soul journey and to reveal our inner creative gifts as well as to engage in meditation, music, poetry, art and silent prayer 🙏🏽 that all bring us beyond mind-body.
In the cycle of the hummingbird we learn to laugh and appreciate being alive in the present moment.
The wings of the hummingbird move in the pattern of infinity symbolizing eternity and continuity. Hummingbirds tirelessly seek nectar, which can remind us to seek out the good in life and the beauty in every day.
Today I am giving thanks to being physically present in the sacred valley of Peru and able to receive teachings from the kind and compassionate @jananiayni @zachbeachlove

summer 2014 in Nice, France ❤️ 🇫🇷 •
This was the magical summer when my I was crafting my thesis on wine culture in Nice vs. London 🍷 • •
4 years later, my baby came to life! My research was published in this winter’s edition of Gastronomica, the journal of critical food studies 💗💗💗 •
Read a peek into the making of my research in my latest food blog post: .
let’s talk about holding space through vulnerability. it’s easy for me to open up + be vulnerable. it’s simple to me that doing this opens up space for more authentic connections with others. i express this a lot on the ol ig. exposing this also exposes the light within, that’s what you see. that’s what attracts people to healers + mystics. they see that light. they see that shimmery goodness exuding from their skin, their eyes, their smile. it’s not because we don’t have darkness, but because we’ve sat in our darkness. we’ve worked in it - and continue to work in it - so that we may understand it better + show up for others without our shadow as the driving force, but our light. as a healer you need to know when it’s safe to share this & when to protect that shit like fort knox. a lot of being vulnerable isn’t just opening up, it’s showing up. being able to hold that same space for others. that’s the tricky part. when i was in my darkest depths, i only knew how to open + bleed vulnerability all over everyone around me. i had no means of holding that same space for anyone else...though try, i might. i realized i was leading with my shadow. sharing my pain as a means of connection. it took me awhile to start making the shift to connecting with my light, while still honoring my shadow. this is still my work. when you invite people in only using your darkness, you’re just souls sitting in the dark together. if someone invites you into their light - friend, family, lover, partner - you’ve gotta bring more than just your shadow. (unless you’re doing healing work with that person...that’s a whole other post about compensating healers for their work.) in short, think about how you’re showing up for others. are you only bringing your shadow along? if you’re needing to be in your darkness, honoring your shadow, be honest about it. own it. and when those same loved ones - those little beacons of light - need to share their shadow with you, don’t turn away from them because it’s not pretty or convenient for you. they held space for your darkness, the least you could do is shine a light in theirs.
anyway, long post. if you made it here i’d love to hear your thoughts! 💜

It’s the moments that brought me to my knees that were the most important, transformative and lifechanging ones. When I had no other choice than to surrender and ask for help. When the pain was so deep, there was nothing else to do than to give up the struggle and just be... We’re wired to run from pain, but the moment I stopped running, was the moment I was free. In this space of nothingness my life changed.
It’s comfortable to be in control. To let go is the opposite, and so scary. Sometimes letting go is hard, because holding on is the only thing we know.
Well, at least it was for me...
I was so set in my ways I wasn’t even open to receiving guidance and allowing life to unfold. So I kept on repeating old stories and the suffering continued, and got worse, until life brought me to my knees, and I gave up the fight and the struggle.
I asked for help.
I stopped running.
We try so hard to be strong, but strenght lies in letting go. We try so hard to prove that we know, when real wisdom lies in admitting that we might not know.
Life is a humbling experience. I’m thankful for it all.
Instead of forcing, I now allow. I welcome the unknown, it’s where I can discover, create and flow. It’s such an amazing experience to be in the state of allowing and simply let myself be who I was always supposed to be. In the creative space, it’s not about me, but the work I am meant to bring forth. I allow. I’m the channel. This is where the magic happens✨
