Today on World Mental Health Day I visited the Tate Britain Museum in London and I was finally able to behold one of my favourite paintings of all time: John Millais’ Ophelia.
I recently spent a few days in Dorset, in the south of England. I had never visited it before and I cannot think now why… It is so beautiful and it is definitely underrated.
The film Venom (2018), based on the character of Marvel Comics, hints at the concept of the pain-body introduced by spiritual master Eckhart Tolle in his world-renowned book The Power of Now.
I used to believe love was enough, I used to believe that if someone loved you then it would work out. That if someone loved you and you loved them it would all be alright, that you would be able to overcome anything. I recently realised this is not true because love is not enough..
These are my reviews for some of the books I read in June and July 2020. Happy reading, everyone!
Now that we have to keep distance, it is more important than ever to make eye contact, to smile at each other from across the street or across the room, to wave at each other from opposite windows and sometimes just to say hello and start conversations with strangers with good vibes in coffee shops.
Nobody is exempt from hardships, but it always amazes me how many people actually believe some people are, and how easy it is to confuse positivity, resilience, kindness and the relentless desire to see the good in even bad situations as naivety and lack of experience or knowledge.
Siempre me ha gustado estar sola, la soledad era mi refugio. Ella me ayudaba a respirar, a relajarme, a escapar, a recargar mi energía… Nunca pensé que la soledad podría convertirse un día en mi prisión.
Ahora sé que estar sola por elección es muy diferente a estar sola porque no hay otra opción.
Grounding brings you back into your body, into Presence, into the Now. Grounding helps to feel centred, focused, present, safe, here. It is one of our most basic and simple tools that we can all access to heal. There are many ways to ground yourself. In this post, I share the things that help me get grounded and stay grounded.
To find balance we need the Whole of Us. We need our Yin and our Yang. Too much or too little of either is not healthy. We need both. And most importantly we need to understand we ARE both. Sometimes we think we are only one part of the whole, that we are the part that has the Yin with a bit of Yang and that someone else who will complement us or rather “complete us” will be the Yang that has a little bit of Yin, or vice-versa. This is not true. We are Both. We are the Whole. And by integrating this Whole Within, we find our Balance.
