Oh, lala! My Sweet Spot!
I participate in a journal writing membership at http://journal.journalengine.com. Some time ago the facilitator, Marc Manieri, asked us to identify our Sweet Spots.
As I remember, Marc defines our Sweet Spots as those organic strong places within us, those things we love and give us joy, those things we would do whether they paid us or not. I found the practice of recognizing my Sweet Spots as a great self-love and self-esteem booster, so I recommend you try it!
I want to share my Sweet Spots with you today.
I am an inspirer. Inspiration is my Sweet Spot.
Sometimes inspiration is poetry. Written poetry. I become a mermaid and dive into the depth of existence to bring back to the surface the treasures of life.
I have one book of poetry that I am preparing in English. It is called The Tao of Trees. This is about the poems and teachings given to me by the trees. When I was sick some years ago, the trees healed me and they gave me these beautiful meditations in poetry about life. I am preparing that book with the audio and the illustrations capturing the energy presence of the trees. WOW! That’s a beautiful journey.
I also have several other unpublished books of poetry. One of them is my next book in Spanish. It is entitled El Duende en los Ojos. “El Duende” is the spirit of Flamenco, the Spirit of art as Lorca, the great poet, described it. El Duende is cousin of The Muses, if you get what I mean.
The poems in this collection I am creating awaken the spirit of life for people to romance their lives. Don’t you see why I simply loooove this?
There is the spoken poetry in literary readings. I also love to inspire via audio. I like to create audio experiences to heal, inspire and help you transform your life easily, deeply and gracefully. Check out my audios at:
Then there is the Dance-poetry performances. Here I become fire, warm and dancing, to speak the language of passion.
I combine dance, performance, theatre and sometimes visual arts to embody a revelation, story or poem. I loooove doing this. In the rehearsals, I grow, heal and evolve deeply. In the performances, people go into deep healing and transformation. These are ceremonies in the tradition of the old shamans who danced and drummed, but within contemporary life. Powerful stuff!
Check my current performance, called LifeBites, because I take daily problems that people are having and create a performance to present the problem and then move people towards the solution.
Then there is the Ceremonial Poetry. I love to do ceremonial poems! They engage people into journeying through the poem as a ceremony or rites of passage. They are fantastic! I do them for opening ceremonies, speaking engagements and even in literary readings. See my current Ceremonial Poetry.
Sometimes inspiration is a thought, an insight. Here I meditate and empty my mind. I become air.
I offer daily inspiration in my Facebook profile. If you are in Facebook, befriend me at:
Then you will be regaled with my daily tips, inspiration, practices, meditations and more.
I also post daily inspiration and tips in this blog:
I also go off the radar when I am doing visual art. I become light and color.
I simply merge with Oneness and go swimming in the pool of delight. Want to see one of my art pieces?

Now I’m hooked in inspiring through video presentations. My upcoming video blog will feature many of them! If you want to receive the video blog via email, subscribe here:
Finally, I go deep down into the depth of earth and the human soul when I write prose, whether it is fiction or non-fiction.
I write in my blog every week. Read some of it here:
So what is left?
I love to do ceremony. Spiritual ceremony, with music (like drumming, Yeepeee!), crystals, dancing, chanting, and I go off and my mind becomes the sky and I am healed, expanded, transcended. I fly.
And then, there is spiritual teaching.
When I am with someone guiding them, supporting them, I become a clear channel for Divine energy, and it flows through me, and I can see and touch beyond my limits. Doing this I grow and deepen my being and connect to many dimensions beyond the solid. It is the experience of greatness.
I am right now opening a one-year mentorship to place all my “Sweet Spots” at the service of 10 women. These women will have me as their “Break-free Mama” helping them every day to break free from past limitations, release hidden interferences, free their Unique Essence, live creatively and unleash their greatness. I will help them address their current problems and design a life and/or work experience that creates their dream right here, right now. Interested? Check it out at:
I can truly say that I have so many sweet spots that I am like a great 85% cocoa organic chocolate bar! (I have a friend who says that good chocolate is not really that sweet. But no matter, it’s heavenly!)
Thanks for asking this question, Marc. It brought me great delight. I now I ask you, beautiful readers, what is YOUR Sweet Spot? Leave your comments below.
Light and love,
The Dream Alchemist
