Patience. Why is it so hard sometimes? We want things to happen. Change, growth, inspiration, excitement, newness, something to end or pass. But we are exactly where we are supposed to be, at this exact moment. Always. Even when it doesn’t seem so, trust that we are. There are lessons to be learned. Sitting with it all can be a challenge. But accepting and experiencing is part of the beauty of this journey. The longer we resist and fight, the more persistent our ‘problems’ will be. Allow them in and let me go. Cry, scream, laugh, smile, however you need to express it. It’s all temporary. So if you can, just sit and be patient. Observe. Try not to judge. And release it all for the Higher good. It’ll be ok. It always is🙏

If someone, anyone tries to change your truth, look them in their eyes and you will see their true intention. It's never, ever been about you, it's only ever been about them, anything to win. This is your life. How will you live it? #mindfulness #truthhurts #godsplan #forgiveness #openyourheart
I DO NOT COMPLY - and I will continue sawing away at my chains to this system, because I AM freedom.
I speak up when something is unjust, and I follow the path to my own version of success. I am free of control and manipulation.
As of the age of 15, to the depth of my core, I knew there was something wrong with the way I was taught to live my life. Be quiet I was told. Forget your creativity and individuality. Compete, don’t create. Do as you’re told, and don’t question authority. Be a good, quiet, obedient girl. OR ELSE.
After SO MANY years of battle - my consciousness has finally escaped my genetically engineered mind.
A mind that experienced trauma closing up my radiant heart with too many bolts and locks to count.
Ripped away from my country of roots where nature trumps technology and family love was placed above money, I experienced culture shock over and over and over again.
I survived double the dose of vaccinations and lack of love and attention from parents too busy trying to live the American dream. I survived the public education system, corporate America and not allowing myself to live at my full potential. I survived major social anxiety, insomnia, difficulties with concentration and absorbing information, lack of confidence, and being around the wrong people most of my life.
These experiences shaped my current existence, but I let go of everything that does not serve me. I am consciousness - not these experiences.
I will not allow any experiences OR PEOPLE to close my heart up again. I broke all the locks, and my heart will remain open to give and receive love.
Edna O’Brien’s first novel, ‘The Country Girls’, was banned, denounces by religious leaders and often burned in Ireland as a result of her frank portrayals of the sex lives of their characters. It is often credited with breaking silence on sexual matters and social issues during a repressive period in Ireland following World War II.
Jesus always has His ways of showing His amazing love, today we had a Christmas party with the children from the Saucito ministry, these ladies love on them in ways that really humbled me. These children are growing in harsh environments with their fathers gathering in corners to drink beer and smoke weed, some of them have no parents and live in small houses with other 6-10 family members, they have poor diets, some suffer abuse and sometimes wear the same clothes all week, but they are the most adorable children, full of energy and hungry for love: Camila, Iker, Elena, Mariana, Nicole... they melted my heart. But we know we serve a Father in heaven that knows no limits, blessings were poured out today as He usually does it, glory to you Lord, you are all we need! #itsallaboutyoujesus #kingdomofgod #blessthischildrenlord #christmasparty #loveeverybody #openyourheart #nevergiveup #theworldneedslove
I’ve always said that “gift giving” was my love language. This year, I learned that my actual love language was “unworthy unless I have something to give you.” This Christmas, I quietly decided not to do material things. Not necessarily in a “screw Christmas” way, but to challenge myself to just be myself. To love better. To focus more on people and less on things.
We’re celebrating Christmas tomorrow morning and tonight I ONLY wrapped gifts from family to Emma.
Next week, Emma and Chris are doing to Australia, while I go to Jamaica. There is NOTHING traditional about our lives but I’m sitting here filled with more gratitude than I’ve ever had for the love and oneness we’ve created. I’ve never been more aligned with who I am and who I have in the reality we’re living.
I hope this resonates with somebody tonight.
Somebody who feels like they need to look or be perfect. You ARE perfect, you are beautiful and you are allowed to say “screw it” when you don’t feel like fitting into the norm! ❤️ #openyourheart #intentionalliving #love #christmas
Selalu posting moment bahagia di sosial media bukan berarti ngga pernah punya masalah rumahtangga, tetapi juga bukan berarti dia MUNAFIK.
Hanya saja dia berusaha untuk menutup aib rumah tangga & keluarganya, karna itu adalah KEWAJIBAN setiap muslim ‼️
Jadi buat kalian yg berpikiran bahwa orang yg slalu posting moment bahagia di sosmed biasanya rumahtangganya lebih bobrok, ubah negative thinking kalian. Lebih baik gantilah dg do'a agar kluarga kita smua menjadi kluarga sakinah mawaddah warohmah 😉

Notice the people that you attract into your life. Who are they? Which fears do they hold? What are their weaknesses? What are they running from? What are their heartaches? Addictions? Chances are they mirror yourself on a level you don’t even realize. These very important people hold your broken pieces in their hands, waiting for you to pick them up for repair. These pieces vibrate loudly and call your soul, yet the only thing you hear and feel is familiarity. It’s your pieces after all. No wonder that they feel like home. Remember though, these pieces that you pick up, need healing before getting reintegrated into the infinite magnitude of your soul. Otherwise they will just be broken pieces inside of yourself not making you any more whole, nor any more complete.
Every person who enters your life is a gift from the universe meant to guide you towards your self-repair and self-healing. Every encounter is meant to point out a scratch or a crack in you, no matter how insignificant you think it may be. No matter how whole you think you’ve become, and how much self-growth you have done, chances are there are still some cracks of fear left to be noticed. Be it a fear of opening up your heart and expressing your feelings. Being cheated on or disappointed by another human. Be it a fear of slipping back into addictions of any kind. Whatever is that part of you which has cracks, that part or parts that make you lose balance ⚖️ , will be uncovered again and again yet by another companion, another friend and another lover. Those very important people who will bring you one step closer to wholeness. Thus, make sure to be consciously prepared for such encounters meant to heal and mend, and meet them with a welcoming heart and without great resistance. 🤗
This concept intensely angers many people.

Lately I’ve been pondering how we can do this thing called life open heartedly without experiencing too much pain...
And yet, as I’ve observed human nature & the reality of life, I realise this is an impossibility...
The degree to which we feel joy is the degree to which we’ll feel pain...
The depth to which we love, is the depth to which we will experience heartbreak...
You simply can’t pick & choose what most appeals.
If you’re here for all of it, then you have to accept all of it.
The alternative is to live life with endless protections, barriers & defence mechanisms...
Many of us do this, but the truth is this just prolongs the pain & suffering...
And distorts it into all kinds of drama...
If instead we open our hearts- face them up courageously to the sky- & FEEL what is there- without making it into something more- then it can be released...
We do not need to project it onto others, or let it cloud our perception of life...
We are all equally human, & we all have our wounds, grief, traumas & fears...
No one else’s pain is more significant than another’s...
As a human living on earth its inherent you will feel & experience negative, dark, unpleasant & even horrific emotions & circumstances...
We are all in this together- none of us gets out alive...
Fighting against these truths, resisting them, pushing them down, numbing against feeling it all only intensifies & increases the suffering...
As they say, pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.
The only way I see to live open-heartedly so that I can experience all the joy, bliss & pleasure life has to offer- is to also open up to & accept the reality that there will also be pain, hurt & struggle.
And despite this I’ll always be ok, because the heart is resilient; it’s actually unbreakable & it’s depths are infinite...
I encourage you to also trust in your heart & keep living open...
It’s scary- but it’s also the best life ☺️🙌🏻
A closed heart creates a sad human...
And this creates illness - physical, mental & emotional...
Be brave, love big & stay open ❤️🌴🌸☀️
