Are you Feeling Alone and Abandoned?

Reading Time: 3 minutes Story Alchemy Are you Feeling Alone and Abandoned? One of the complains that I have been hearing from your feedback is the feeling that you are alone and unsupported. There is a sense of isolation ~even when you are surrounded by people. This is debilitating and makes you feel abandoned just when you need more support than ever. This feeling if often masked by the excitement of festivities, but just about now, as you come down from the Holiday high, it is making you feel tired, weighed-down and even more alone than ever. I’ve been there. I know that it is of little consolation to know that you are not alone in your aloneness, but today I offer you something more than sympathy or empathy. I invite you into a journey of Story Alchemy, a path of storytelling that empowers you to shift from that aloneness into alignment with your beautiful, radiant Sacred Self. If you have not read about Story Alchemy before, here it is in a nutshell: Humans explain our world and our role in that world through [Read more.]

Do you Need to Create a Chrysalis?

Reading Time: 4 minutes Do you Need to Create a Chrysalis? I want to share with you the magic of my most recent shamanic performance that took place on Sunday, May 17th in New York. I just emerged from my ceremonial chrysalis and did a magical Butterfly Dance. This was an in-depth ceremony for me as well as a shamanic performance and journey for the women in the audience. I first wrote a poem and then danced it. The poem was a shamanic journey through the process of creating my chrysalis, feeding on it to become my dream and finally emerging as my embodied potential. “But what is this chrysalis?” you may ask. In nature, the chrysalis is the new skin that the caterpillar builds in order to nurture and protect its transformation into butterfly. The Sacred Feminine School of Wisdom teaches us that women also need to create a chrysalis to nurture and protect our transformation. Throughout time, there have been different ceremonies, rites or special places for women to do this, from the Moon Lodge to the Red Tent. If you are [Read more.]

Story: The Veils, the Shadows and the Swan

Reading Time: 13 minutes Friday Story The Veils, the Shadows and the Swan   Alma had exhausted all her money and resources trying to find a way to share her poetry with the world without becoming a starving artist. I am sick and tired of working two and three jobs while keeping poetry as a hobby. Writing at night exhausts me. I begin my long working day tired and frustrated. But what could I do? Publishers say that poetry does not sell, and I don’t have the money to publish and promote myself. Plus everyone wants poetry to be free, and I can’t live just from the few books sold. The math doesn’t add up. If I could become a great poet, like Maya Angelou or Pablo Neruda. Or maybe a famous performer like Lady Gaga… then perhaps my poetry would inspire millions and I will be able to earn my living from my passion and purpose. Lost in these thoughts, Alma found herself in a strange vicinity. She was smiling at the last thought of being like Lady Gaga, finding it as outrageous [Read more.]

The Gifts of the three Magi...for you!

Reading Time: 8 minutes Receive the gifts of the Magi during these Holy Days     In the Latino tradition, the Christmas story reaches its heights after the birth of the baby Jesus, during epiphany, when the Magi brought the newly born Jesus gifts fit for a king or a God. There were probably many alchemists, astronomers, priests, seers and sages that embark in the long journey to that Bethlehem manger. They were the ones who could foresee the importance of this birth. They were leaders and visionaries. However, in the archetypal story passed on to us, they are all represented by the three Wise Men, three Kings or three Magi. For these Holy Days, I want to champion you in receiving the three gifts of the Magi because with them you too can become a leader, an alchemist and a visionary. You can make your dreams come true and embody your purpose for 2015. Myrrh: the Gift of Being and Becoming   In some versions of the epiphany story the gift of Myrrh is ascribed to Balthazar, the younger alchemist. He is the [Read more.]

Manifesting? Look Under the Rug

Reading Time: 5 minutes Manifesting? Look Under the rug   The phrase “to sweep under the rug” refers to hiding something embarrassing, to place it out of view. I have found that we often sweep what we really want under the rug. Click To Tweet Not only we hide what we want —our dreams, desires, what makes us happy, even our goals– and keep on keeping on in an ordinary routine of life. We also hide the Essence of what we truly want. One of the places where I see this more often is in people’s obsession with making more money. There’s a popular attitude among many coaches and business people that if you really want to get clients, find a way in which your offer can make them more money. And the fact is that making money is one of the top money-making topics, right there with losing weight. In both areas, the essential desire is often swept under the rug. Here’s what I mean. I want Money! There’s nothing wrong with wanting money. However, from a shamanic perspective if you focus your [Read more.]
