Bridges and Paths

The Road Less Traveled, or Not…

 

IMG_0509

There are times in our lives when we must cross bridges or burn them or build them. It is an interesting concept to contemplate. When you do cross, burn, or build a bridge? The answer is not easy, but needs to be aligned with our purpose, what we have set out to do and why. It trull does help to sit in quiet contemplation when having to make such a choice or decision.

And sometimes we have to choose the road less traveled or the road where we are blazing a path and walking our footpath

“Caminante, no hay camino, se hace el camino al andar” Walker there is no path, you will make the path as you walk it” as Machado so eloquently put it. This leaves us again contemplating the life we have, the life we live and the goals we wish to achieve. It is all good, and there is no right or wrong, that is the beauty in what we do.

And, at times the path is crystal clear and laid out for us. We just need the courage to take it and not let old fears and troubles get in the way. At times, we just need to “Go for it” and bask in the glory of what we know to be our own truth.

A New Day Has Come

New Days, New Beginnings, Renewal

Vacations are time for reflections, new beginnings, and new days. I was reminded of this last week as I greeted each new day with anticipation and reflection of my life, my loves, and what I was doing. I had a tremendous time with just being me and just contemplating where I have been and where I am going. If you have not taken the time to quiet your mind and reflect on your life, do you soul and spirit a favor, and let them commune with your heart in the morning stillness.

Friday Night at the Theatre-CASA 0101

A Mother’s Day Weekend Treat

LatinologuesTonight, well this weekend, promises to be very exciting in Boyle Heights, where Rick Najera will be performing Almost White, a series of vignettes based on his memoirs. Rick recalls what it is like to be a Latino in Hollywood, Latino growing up, and just a plain kid living in the outskirts of Los Angeles. He recounts his experiences with grace, charm and lots of fun, but best of all, he makes us think. Think about issues in our society, think about social justice, think about equality and equity and what it means to be an America, a hyphenated American, and a Mexican-American. He is smart, funny, and a joy to listen to.

If you are still looking for something to give to mom for Mother’s day, head over to CASA 0101 and have a great evening. I will be there on Saturday night to catch Almost White and Latinologues

M&M’s Divinity Pills

M&M’s Divinity Pills

Sweet InspirationsI saw M&M Pills for another activity and knew I had to adapt them to Reclaiming Your Divinity. These are the perfect indulgence to help you shake a mood, get inspired, or change a limiting belief. The pills can really help in releasing your passions and bringing abundance and harmony into your life.
Is it really this simple? Yes, because thoughts become things, and when you find your thoughts spinning out of control, take out your divinity pills, focus on one color or all the colors, and notice how quickly your mood, your thoughts, your ideas can change.
  • Brown M&M divinely calm your carving for chocolate
  • Red M&M release your divine passion
  • Orange M&M illuminate the divine fire burning within
  • Green M&M call divine abundance to your divine self
  • Yellow M&M unleash your divine shining light
  • Blue M&M’s bring divine harmony into your life
Directions: Take as needed. If all symptoms occur at the same time eat the whole bag. Warning: May cause weight gain.

Divinity Reclamation Kit

Divinity Reclamation Kit


As an educator I have been given many “survival” kits. They are fun ways to survive a day as a teacher, be it in preschool or elementary school or high school. They are baggies filled with inspirational items that remind you why you do what you do. As I started planning how to help other reclaim their divinity, I started looking a these kits and decided to put together my own Divinity Reclamation Kit…to remind me that I do make my own reality and that I control my future. Here is my Divinity Reclamation Kit…start yours today and get inspired!!!

 
Divinity Reclamation Kit—your divinity reclamation kit is filled with nine symbolically divine items to help you reclaim your divinity. These items will serve as a constant reminder that you are a divine being who can manifest the life that you want to live. That you are meant to live in abundance, and that you are the embodiment of source energy. The energy that helps propel you into greatness and sends you the signal and message that there is more to do and you are here for a reason.
  1. Candle–to represent your inner divine light

  1. Pennies–for your thoughts…which you have or will manifest into things…

  1. Tissues–for tears to show that you are real and authenticand trees…

  1. Notebook for affirmations and gratitudes

  1. Boomerang for sending out good karma…what goes around comes around

Part 6: There Are No Accidents: You Are Here for a Reason

Part 6: There Are No Accidents: You Are Here for a Reason

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There’s a land that I’ve heard of once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream,
Really do come true.

Somewhere, over the rainbow, in the land of our ancestors, there was a time when the female energy was strong and powerful and survival was not of the fittest, but of the many. Everyone was nurtured, for the fruit of our womb bound us together in a neverending cycle of life. As women who gave birth, we had a different way of knowing, of being, of understanding. As women who gave birth, we felt a connection to all women on earth, we felt a connection to all of our comadres y madrinas, and it defied all artificial boundaries. Just see what happens when a group of women who just met start sharing their birth stories, just feel the tears when we start talking about our mothers, just experience the joy when we are not silenced and our emotions are allowed to flow. I have said it before and it bears repeating, THERE ARE NO ACCIDENTS!!! Everything happens for a reason, YOU ARE HERE FOR A REASON.

And, you are reading this for a reason. This message will not resonate with all. Some will dismiss it psychological mumbo/jumbo, some will think of it as anti-organized religion, some will say, ashes to ashes, dust to dust, our ancestors mean nothing in the modern order. And, some will say, “This makes sense to me. I do feel a tug, I do feel a dissatisfaction that is hard to explain, I am drawn to starting my own business, I am not happy being a part of corporate America, I know there is something greater inside of me, I know that I was put here for a reason. And others will say, I am one with my ancestors, I know my role in the new world order, I am here to reclaim my divinity and to make it happen. Yes, there are no accidents and you are here for a reason.

And, it is up to you to discover that reason and to decide what is the mantle that you will take up, what is the cause that is burning in your belly, what is your essential message to the world and how are you going to give it voice? How are you going to ensure that you are silenced no more? Where do you feel your calling and with whom? What activities resonate with you and allow your heart to sing in joyful harmony?

·         Are you being called upon to start a business?

·         Spread joy and happiness?

·         Support the arts?

·         Build a community center?

·         Create a space for others to thrive?

·         Educate others


We all have a calling, we are all purpose driven, and we are all given a message that only we can carry into the world. What is your message? What is it that you are carrying into the world? How are you helping to bring about the balance of the male and female energies? What are you being called upon to do? For those who listen to divine intuition will find their purpose and live in joy and harmony, embracing life, and giving thanks for the abundance that surrounds them. Those who reclaim their divinity will surely be the ones who lead the call to action and begin the tectonic shift that has already begun.

See you on the other side of the rainbow!!!
