I Stand Tall

I Stand Tall

The true story,
the one that resonates the most,
is that I stand
on good ground,
on solid ground.
I stand rooted
in truth
in love
and light
and wellness.
May I hold my arms out wide
and my head up high and stand tall
like a tree upon the earth
while the stories of fear and false beliefs
flow past me like leaves
being carried in the wind.”
Happy New Moon!!


Spring Renew

Spring Renew

Spring Renewal
And for no reason in each and every Spring Equinox
I feel the pulsing of the Earth
I sense the pull to awaken
I sense the tug to come out
Spring brings imagination and inspiration
My thinking is clearer
My vision is rich
My breath is deeper
The only balance we have control over is the natural balance we feel when we have communion with the present moment!
I wish you a rich colorful Spring Season!


Honoring my mother

Honoring my mother

My mother at thirteen years old! (Minha Mãe aos treze anos!)
One year ago my mother left this world.
Back in Spirit world certainly she found the answers to her questions and the meaning of her suffering….
Today, when I feel my mom, she is much bigger than the person I knew, greater than the woman I called “my mom”. Her being has expanded and it is luminous!! She is beyond what I thought she was, she is beyond what she thought she was…..she is light!

Minha Mãe aos treze anos!
Um ano atraz minha mãezinha partiu.
Partiu para o mundo Espiritual, onde com certeza encontrou entes queridos e alivio para suas dores, com certeza esclareceu suas duvidas e deu significado para seu sofrimento.
Minha mãe era uma pessoa simples, caridosa e sorridente.
Hoje, quando sinto sua presença, è muito mais do que aquela pessoa que conheci e chamei “minha mãe”. Sua presença è radiante, seu espirito è repleto de luz e sereno. Ela è mais do que eu pensava…ela è luz! A saudade è grande mas o amor è maior!


Access Tools works so fast you may even wish to have your "upset" back!!

I took my first Access Bars class almost two years ago and the changes in my inner and outer world continue to amaze me.
I realized how dramatically and magically the tools work when I visited my family in Brazil a year ago.
Now, if you know anything about family patterns you know that the dynamics gets activated around family gatherings. 🙂
In the past my father’s certain remarks would land on me very heavily. It would immediately create a reaction and a big frowning face lasting for a while, and in some cases years.
After countless Enlightening books and seminars and specially Breath-work (Circular Breathing) I learned to dance with emotions, express myself, and breathe heaviness out. This time around I had a new tool to play with and it surprised me.
During the first family dinner in my last trip home my father started his comments on a topic that created in me the familiar gut reaction and inner contraction. I said nothing. Remembering my old lessons I knew that expressing my thoughts would only spoil the family dinner and perpetrate a dysfunctional cycle. Few hours later, still charged and contracted, I remembered Access Consciousness questions – new tools!!
I asked “What stupidity am I using to create the upset I am choosing?” and just like magic I felt lighter immediately and the charge was gone! Still stunned, I heard my insane mind arguing…”wait a minute, if I let it go I can’t make him wrong anymore. I am right and his wrong!” And bang!! I nailed it! I was unlocking an old pattern of wanting to be right all the time. As crazy as it sounds part of me wanted to keep the upset so I could continue to make him wrong and me right. As if holding on to the upset was a punishment for him! How insane was that?
I wonder,
How many of us are unconsciously holding on to upsets just to prove the righteousness of our point of view?
How many of us, honestly, would rather be right than happy?
How many of us don’t know what to do but react or resist, do anger or rage, or suppress everything and do nothing?
How many of us would like to choose something different?
How about trying a new tool?
What else is possible?

Passion and Compassion

Passion and Compassion

On the high wire of these times
Changing Women dances
surefooted and exuberant.
O Goddess of Radical Alchemy!
Teach us the arts
of bending with the sway,
Then countering the flow,
Of bending the extremes,
Daring to hold the Middle Way.
Grant us, Kwan Yin,
Your poise in the eye of the storm.
Ground us in your Harmony.
Challenge us with immeasurable reach of your Love.
Pele, Divine Artisan, temper us in your Great Fire of reconciliation
Where opposites bursts into new gold,
Rigidities soften
And the annealed heart can mend.

Wholeness- A Poem

Wholeness- A Poem

I am an empty vessel so He can pour himself into me.

I am Beauty so He can delight himself in me.

I am an ever blossoming flower so He can enjoy my perfume.

I am shakti so He can be shiva.

I am a fountain of grace so He can drink from me.

I am the dance itself so He can be the music.

I am vulnerability so He can be my strength.

I am Infinity so He can be Eternal.

I am Joy enjoying the Divine Play forever and Ever.


Anger- Friend or Foe?

Anger- Friend or Foe?

familiar and safe like a brother
yet destructive and unforgiving
no one wants to be near it
suppressed it boils until the explosion
deceiving power only
seen by the ridiculous defensiveness
she defends herself bluntly
deep guilt arrises
she punishes herself in a hundred unconscious ways
what to do?
is it her own or was it passed down as normal?
is it someone else’s?
confusion and then again it arises
in her family
in her partner
in her thoughts
she has fiercely processed it to the ground
yet understanding it does not make it disappear
is it real?
is it a distraction from creativity?
she laughs
she chooses peace again and again


What I pray for! A Poem

What I pray for! A Poem

What I pray for…
For the greater Vision…
the release from judgment.
For complete memory of God…
the release from separation.
I pray for readiness.
For the embodiment of humbleness…
the release of the Ego.
For listening to Mother’s Song…
the release from uncosnciousness.
For – Giving…
the release from wanting.
For Miracles…
the release from projection.
For the awakening of the Serpent…
the release from madness.
I pray for Truth.

Humbleness – A Poem

Image

Humbleness is silence.
Humbleness has no shame nor justifications;
Humbleness is vulnerability.
Humbleness is receiving unconditionally.
Humbleness is readiness without agendas.
Humbleness is acceptance.
Humbleness is gentleness without expectations;
Humbleness is greatness.
Humbleness is seeing without projections;
Humbleness is sweet presence.
Humbleness is a a teacher without preaching;
Humbleness is being.
Humbleness is knowing without arrogance;
Humbleness is mastery.
