This new year…BE the change you want to see in this world

Be the change you want to see in this world

Be the change you want to see in this world

Happy New Year 2015!! I wish that you may have a year full of blessings, happiness, love and light! I love new years, because they are times of reflection. It is a time when we decide what we can change within us to become better and to become the best versions of ourselves. While many new year resolutions are aimed towards losing weight, saving more money, buying a new car, etc., and while all resolutions have a place in our holistic self that will make all parts of our life better and thus make us better. It all starts with US. We decide to BE. To be what? You may ask. I simply say: “Be the best you”. Such as the wise Gandhi once said “Be the change you seek to see in this world.” He was not far from the truth and in fact, this is what true change is all about. We need to be the best versions of ourselves. We all know what that means. We know the areas we might need to work on and most importantly, only we know what we must do to cleanse ourselves from the past and start anew with new light and new force, so we can shine once more and leave our mark in this world (or why not? In this universe).

So this new year, let it be about YOU. Do not worry what others need to do or change. That is not up to us. But what we can do and focus is on our own life, our own little universe. This we can control, and hopefully one good choice, will lead to another, and another and like a domino effect cause an expansion of light and love all around us that will not only touch your family, friends, community, but the entire world and push towards the collective force that will pave the way to change our entire universe. And it starts with you. Do it my friend. Take the first step and BE THE CHANGE!

Love and light,

Faith is taking the first step

20131207-133350.jpg

I totally love this picture that states that even the smallest step in the right direction will be the only way towards the fulfillment of our dreams.
Many times, we fear this dreadful step, but once taken, it will liberate us, and with it, it will move us towards the life we were meant to live.
Don’t fear your own greatness- you may be surprised of what you may become, but you will never know if you don’t take the first step.
Have faith, believe in yourself and take the first step. See all the greatness within you, and realize that you have the power to reach for the stars.
Just like in Martin Luther King Jr. own words:
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase”.

Milton’s Secret

I wanted to share the news about this new screenplay about to be turned into a family film with spiritual undertones about bullying, high ideals, and prevailing over uncertainty.
This is an extremely exiting movement, since for the first time, more and more movies and books that talk about spirituality, awareness, awakening, inner-transformation and consciousness are being produced!
You too can be part of making it a dream come true and that there are rewards to be shared. Star Rise- The Initiation is a story similar to Milton’s Secret in that is heightens the awareness of not only the main character, but the reader. Awakening is part of this inner-personal journey within that will make us realize the powers that lie dormant within us.
In invite you to help me in pay it forward to get as much support to fund this one of a kind project!!

We create our own universe

we-are-the-creators

This phrase has been stated by numerous leaders, teachers, scientists, writers, sages, inventors, etc. So why is this so hard for us to believe? Our self-doubt is due to years and years of ingrained thinking and we honestly think that our success and happiness depends on others (education, employment raise, boss, teachers, government etc.)

But what if I tell you that the moment YOU decide that you are a co-creator of your reality, you will begin to manifest your heart’s desires and only then will your reality will be in line with what you truly want.

How do we make this shift? It is easy and yet, for some, it is extremely difficult. We need to firstly understand that we are all energy, everything is made of energy and our brain emits frequencies, more powerful and intense than even radio frequencies that can literally travel across the world and even to the universe.

Can you fathom this idea? This is quantum physics. Just ask Einstein, Tesla or Edison, they knew this factual information. So how can we take this information and apply it in our own life.

Firstly, we need to believe it, with our hearts, no doubt, no fears. This is the first step, then we need to put in our mind via imagination or visualization until it becomes a belief. Secondly, Continue reading

Don’t follow the crowds, go your own way

20131002-171844.jpg
I positively LOVE this quote: “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”.
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
Who doesn’t love Emerson! He was so right with this quote. I know that fear many times prevent us from doing our own thing, and instead we end up following the masses to try and fit into a mold that will never be contorted to fit us.
Don’t be afraid to be you and to be different! Because only you can bring forth a creation so magical that only you could have created such a unique reality. Whether you want to be an actor(ress), writer, dancer, musician, doctor, astronaut, soccer agent, or soccer player. Only you know what it is to dream your dream, so don’t let them be only that- a dream- go forth and make them into reality! Whatever your heart desires is the beginning of creation.
So create a magical reality and don’t follow the crowd, instead go on your own path and see what wonders you can create- when you follow your heart and do your own thing.

You are what you believe

oprah winfrey quote, oprah winfrey show, ofrah winfrey believe

 

I love this quote by Oprah Winfrey! Who doesn’t love Oprah, right? She is amazing! She is such an inspiration and her life work is one of true example, perseverance, peace, love and light. But she is so right- You are what you believe!

This quote is so powerful because it teaches us to visualize or imagine the grandest vision possible. So what could that look like to you? Do you want to be an actress? An artist? A writer? A doctor? Whatever tickles your fancy- should be the fire that kindles your dreams.

The next step is to BELIEVE it. As I have stated many times in my blog posts, if you do not believe in yourself and if you do not have faith in your dreams; those dreams will expire and die out.

Don’t let this happen. Realize that you CAN achieve greatness, you CAN create miracles in your life and you CAN make a difference. It is up you what kind of life you want to live. So make that shift and start creating the biggest vision possible and follow it with your heart.

 

Dream BIG!

20130909-084315.jpg
I love this message- “If your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not BIG enough.”
Sometimes we put a limit on ourselves since we believe we don’t deserve greatness. But we do! It is our birthright to be happy and attain peace and whatever else or hearts desire.
Allow yourself to dream big and see what wonders you will begin to attract into your life! Don’t forget to believe in yourself, since you have something wonderful within that is waiting to burst out.
Break the limiting thoughts and BELIEVE! You are more powerful than what you think you are. You can attain greatness- no doubt- so go ahead and dream BIG! And scare your own self! You deserve it!

The power of thoughts

The power of our thougths

The power of our thoughts

When I saw this picture I was reminded of the times when my thoughts were not as positive as I would have liked them to be and I felt I was spiraling downward into an abyss. When you loose the control and power over your own life, you literally feel out of flow.

On one occasion, I was so negative, my oldest son Seth, who is 9 and somewhat of a sage-if you ask me- told me: “Mom- remember what you always tell me. Only think of what you want.” At that moment in time, I was complaining about bills and other stuff that came into my life and instead of handling it like I usually do- which is in a peaceful state, focusing on the end result- I let the negative frequency envelop me and my emotions were out of whack!

So this little wise person reminded me of the very things I had taught him, but had forgotten. I know it is much easier to just cry about it and become consumed by the situations that we live in. Since it is very hard to feel abundance when you can barely make by from month to month. But the trick is to shift this awareness of lack and focus on all the wonderful things you do possess: health, children, a roof over your head, food, loving pets, a magnificent sunset (which are always free!), a rainbow, the love of our partner, and there are many many more things to be grateful for.

Just so you can see how the power of words and imagination can literally make your dreams come true, my son Seth, who has always dreamed of being a professional soccer player was scouted and admitted into the MLS Chicago Fire Academy team! He is on his path of hopefully one day becoming a professional soccer player! It is important to teach our children and those around us that they are more powerful than what society makes us think we are. Whatever happens, at least Seth is getting to live this experience, which he himself has created (along with hard work) and believing in himself. Hey- who knows- he may be the next Cristiano Ronaldo and play for his favorite football club- Real Madrid!

So when we focus on what we have and think only of what we would like to have more of and our emotions shift to those of gratitude, then we will then begin to receive more of what we desire.

Don’t let your negative thoughts hold you back! Reject them and replace them with positive thoughts and see how quickly your emotions and life shifts.

Dare to be different! Dare to be YOU!

I saw this pic on a friend’s FB and I just had to post. Sometimes we feel the need to try to squeeze ourselves into a mold, but why? Why do we strive so hard to be like other people? We need to break from this paradigm and release our true self and just be who we are. With all our talents, qualities, defects, abilities or disabilities. We have a place on this Earth and it is our birthright to be free and be happy.

The way I see it, is we all have a voice, a story to tell. Every living being is unique and precious, and as powerful like a dewdrop is part of the magnificent ocean. Let’s celebrate our differences; let us not fear to be ourselves. Let your inner light shine forth.

The Star Rise book series is all about standing up and not being afraid of who you truly are, and when you make this choice, you will see greatness arise from the ashes.

I leave you with this quote and I challenge you to dare to be different. I dare you to be YOU…and we can learn to see with different eyes.

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson
