Your sacred space can be within your inner being. I believe once we tab into that sacred space within our inner being we begin to radiate our true essence which is of love, light, peace, kindness, etc you get what I am trying to say.
In 2015 as I continued with my work - God put in my heart to create a sacred space for my sisters. Woman coming together without judgement in a space in which we could BE and allow transformation and healing to occur within ourselves. In Feb, I celebrated Sisterhood's Sacred Healing Circle - South Florida's 1st Year Anniversary.
Blessed beyond words to see these lovely ladies find their peace within. Today's session was amazing. The Heavens confirmed it too. As we make the commitment to focus on our essence. Embracing our inner sanctuary (bodies) we allow miracles to flow. We release energy that is not servicing us and tab into our power our beauty we begin to find strength and freedom to move forward in a positive loving peaceful way. We open the doors for abundance. Abundance in health, abundance in our friendships/relationships, abundance in wealth, & abundance in all areas of our life.
We must remember we are ONE with the Divine/God/Spirit/Universe. As I drove home after this morning's session, I give thanks to every sister that attended. I give thanks for my sisters that could not attend. I send prayers for healing. I send prayers for those mentioned at the circle. I ask God to send light and love to each soul. I arrived home and what happen next was nothing else than a miracle.
Mother's Day 2017
I spend the day at home just another relaxing Sunday. I wondered how my twins are doing and if they thought about me today. I am there Mother. I carried them within my body. I gave birth to them. I have the scar of Motherhood.
My oldest son sent me Happy Mother's Day wishes. I am an alienated Mother. Five years seems like forever. My twins do not communicate with me. I do not know where they are...I pray they are doing well. I pray they will one day see and feel the light. I continue on my path. I continue on my journey. Today is Mother's Day yet for me it's another day. One day I will be writing about the amazing reunion with my twins. I will write about how amazing I spend Mother's Day with all 3 of my children. I know that day is coming soon. Wishes are fulfilled.
And so it is.
Welcome May there is so much to be thankful. Mother's Day. Memorial Day. My dad's birthday is in May too. Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training begins in May.
My sister texted me and wants to take my mother to a dinner cruise to Sanibel Island on Friday May 12th. I am looking forward to so many things in May. So many things happening this month.
What are you ready to achieve in May? What amazing events are happening in your life? Share below. I am looking forward to hearing!
On April 22, 2017 - I attended White Tantric Yoga. As I recall last year and compare it to this year's experience. I have to say this one day meditation workshop is a unique and amazing experience each time. I have done White Tantric Yoga three times thus far. The first experience was at Winter Solstice in December of 2015. I accomplished finishing it without taking any breaks besides the ones that were given during the workshop. It was an overwhelming experience. My body aches but yet I looked forward to the next time I could attend White Tantric Yoga again.
My second experience doing White Tantric Yoga was in April of 2016. I remember that day clearly. My contacts were irritating my eyes the entire time. I managed to finish the workshop without taking any breaks besides those that were given to us. My partner was a beautiful young lady whom was completely her Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training. Below is a picture of Nicole and I (picture was taken months later at her graduation requirement class)
On Saturday, I attending my third White Tantric Yoga workshop. I didn't have a partner but one was brought to me in such a divine manner. She was a friend of one of the my friends whom attending White Tantric Yoga with me in 2016.
Above is the photo of all four us. Lizz and Daniela were partners for White Tantric Yoga and I was partners with Alexandra. Challenging and yet rewarding. I am already looking forward to my next White Tantric Yoga experience.
This one was a requirement for my upcoming Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training at Kundalini Yoga Miami . I am looking forward to this journey.
Sending you light & love
There a treasure in Bonita Springs, Florida named Shangri-La Springs. This historic landmark is so beautiful. They have a gift shop, dinning, and they offer classes. I first went in 2015, when my Kundalini Yoga teacher taught there....I was captivated by the beauty of this landmark. Just sharing one photo of this beauty. Simply breathtaking.
Next time you are vacationing in Florida make a point to check this place out.
April arrived 9 days ago. I have been receiving so many wonderful signs and blessings from my Angelic Spiritual Team. I am ready for Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training to begin next month. If you would like to donate CLICK HERE.
On March 24th, I ordered my endocrine frosted crystal bowl set. As I continue to built my intuitive spiritual practice. I felt the crystal bowls would be a beautiful addition for my Sisterhood's Sacred Healing Circle that I facilitated once a month at MAX'D Out Fitness Center Aerobics Center. I picked up my bowls today and immediately I felt a connection. I am already planning on holding a monthly crystal bowls sound healing circle. I am also available for private sessions. I will be updating my services page with more details. My intention is to share healing light and love.
About 3 years ago, I went through the dark night of the soul. I was going through my spiritual awakening. Experiencing many symptoms since 2009 which at the time I really didn't know what was happening to me. I knew I was changing. I knew I was awakening as I began reading and searching for answers as to my experiences. As I continue to grow, heal, and fully move into servicing others in my mission. I remember the dark night.
The dark night of the soul feels like your heart is literally coming off of your chest.
The dark night of the soul feels like your in a dark empty space.
The dark night of the soul feels like the tears will never end.
The dark night of the soul feels like you can't breathe.
The dark night of the soul feels as if no one truly knows the pain deep within.
I have felt the dark night of the soul. I have been up close and personal with the dark night. Sitting right in front of the dark night of the soul. For about 3 months I was dancing with the dark night of the soul. Actually this was the end of 2014 and beginning of 2015. As I look back it was 2015 in which Kundalini Yoga was brought to my awareness once again after 3 years. I have done the inner work. It was a process. I am thankful for the different modalities that I have learned and practice in my daily life. As a Holistic Practitioner, I have made a commitment to assist others move from living in the darkness to living in the light. I know now I was not alone. The Divine was with me during those months of going through the darkness of the soul. I needed to be cracked open to feel what I felt so that I could completely heal. I am not saying that my life is without trials. I would lie if I said this.....I continue to live through the process of being an alienated parent. I still seek guidance and understanding to this lesson. For I know life on earth is school. I am learning daily. I welcome this.....I know it shall all be revealed in God's Divine Timing.
I am grateful. I am blessed.
I am sending you tons of love and light.
As some of you may know.....before I became an Empowerment Lifestyle Coach, I was in an unhealthy relationship for 15 years. The first 11 years, I honestly didn't know I was in an abusive relationship. The signs were not as clear as the signs of physical abuse. I am launching a video series to share signs, tips, education to help others recognize if they are in an unhealthy abusive relationship and I will share resources to get assistance. Today I share one simple sign that you are in an unhealthy relationship.
If this resonates with you. Please check out for any local organizations that assist with domestic violence.
The number to the National Domestic Violence Hotline is 1 (800) 799-SAFE (7233)
Humiliation is NOT an okay thing. If someone has to put you down, yell at you, call you bad names, and make you feel less than.....this is a sure sign you are in an unhealthy abusive relationship.
I am sending you light and love wrapped in Angel Blessings.
An experience I will never forget. My booking was made on Feb 4th after several messages between myself and the host. I explained my purpose for my travel in great detail. I explained this would be my first time using Airbnb. The first time I heard about Airbnb was by a friend whom used it for this same purpose a year earlier. She mentioned it and gave me the information. Prior to that I never had heard about it. On January 15th, my first communication to the host I specific told her that I would be going to a training in which I would be leaving very early at 3 AM and not returning until after 6 PM for the 3 days booked. The pictures looked nice. The RV was in her backyard in a city Miami. What would happen next was not something I imagined. I believe honesty is the best policy. So when I think back at our email exchanges I feel the host should have said "well Nancy, there is a big raccoon that lives in that very tree next to the RV and if you are going to be leaving at the same hours this animal goes looking for food." I personally would not have booked it as I would have been informed properly.
This is my honest review on my first Airbnb experience.
The photos look so zen. An RV in someone's backyard in Miami. There was a deck that looked great for meditation. An outdoor bathroom. Okay, I am a city girl but how bad could this be? I wouldn't be really in the RV for only sleeping. As my teacher training would be from 4 AM until 6 PM and so I would basically be sleeping and showering. The host was just worried I would make noise at 3 AM showering since there were other guest in her other rooms she offers on Airbnb. I assured her I would shower the night before and would be mindful of not making any noise. We began exchanging emails on Jan 15th. I booked the reservation on Feb 4th. On March 23rd, I arrived around 4:30 PM after a day of work and a 2 1/2 hour drive. I was tried. I was hungry. I wanted to relax. Upon meeting the host and expressing how this was my first time using Airbnb. Her question was "Are you a virgin?" there were two men sitting on the steps of one of her rooms and I found that very inappropriate to ask......I thought this was a weird sense of humor to say the least....and I brush it off. She said grab your things and I will show you your home for the next 3 days.
I grabbed one bag. And walked through a yard full leafs. The RV was a little rustier than the photos....thinking the entire placed looked worn out. Next to the RV as you can see from the picture above. There was this beautiful tree right next to the front door of the RV. As she said this is it....I said oh nice....she showed me the outdoor bathroom. A toliet, sink, and shower....outdoors. No doors just bed sheets dividing the shower section and the "door" into the bathroom from the outdoors. See the picture below. She pointed to the RV and said you there was a raccoon that lived in the tree. I thought she was joking and I know she noticed my face. I was like shock.
I don't know about you but whenever I sleep in a new surrounding it takes me a while to get comfortable. Thursday night was no different. I made myself at home as best as I could the RV was small. Two beds on each end of the RV. There were plenty of dishes, candles, and empty bug spray. But there was no running water. The fridge was not disposable. I made do. I unpacked. It was weird to use the bathroom and shower but I did it. The bamboo were not closed tight and I could see in between the cracks which gave me an uncomfortable feeling. And the fact that a young boy came outside to swing on the tree's swing facing the outdoor bathroom while I was in there made me even more uncomfortable. I made my way to the bathroom for a final potty break before I went to bed for the night.
It took me forever to fall to sleep....it must have been around 2 AM and I was awaken by a couple arguing very loudly in the back yard right outside of my door. The male was upset at the female and this latest for about an hour. The only thing between me and the outside world was a screen door with a little hook locking it. The door had a window screen and it didn't shut all the way so there was a crack. No worries....my cell phone had coverage and I had my flashlight.
I was concerned for my safety at this point as the argument continued. Now I totally understand that the host did not have control over two people arguing very loudly. But happened next I feel she did. I also feel she should have mention this to me back when I told her the details for my trip. After about an hour of the noise....they finally stopped and I guessed they fell asleep. Good, now I could fall back to sleep. I kept hearing like noise of what seemed someone was coming towards the RV. After this noise didn't go away, I get out of bed and look out the screen and right in front of me this huge raccoon was looking back at me. It didn't get scared and it didn't run away. The raccoon spend the next 2 1/2 hours going up and down the tree and crossing under the RV. I was like this is crazy. At this point I could not fall back to sleep. I said this is so unsafe. If I get attacked by this animal. It was not scared of me. It did not get scared off when I flashed the light towards it. I packed up my stuff and decided I would leave at the first sign of day light.
I did just this....at about 7:10 AM I left and headed back home. I emailed my teacher and explained to him my situation. He totally understood and said safety first.
I have gotten my money back for the two nights I did not stay there and I appreciate Airbnb for their customer service resolution in this matter. Will I try Airbnb again. Honestly I don't know. My first experience was horrible. I feel the host should have been a little more honest and explained to me that where I would be sleeping a raccoon would also be sharing my surroundings at the very time I would be leaving for my training. I missed some awesome training events because of this....I feel my safety was at stake. I would not want this to happen to someone else. I truly feel there should be a disclosure that wild animals live on the property.
At the end, I KNOW I was not overreacting. I received plenty of signs from my Angels on Friday.
Not all Airbnb experiences end this way. This is my review for MY trip. MY HONEST review.
