    A Deeper View On Depression

    I have heard different doctors and patients describe depression in their own words, and I, as someone who has struggled with depression since I was a young child, also have described it as best as I could with words. Is it an emotion? Is it a feeling? Is it a hormonal imbalance? Is it a mental illness? What the hell is it that has made me feel like a dark cloud was over me damping and obscuring every step I take? What is this seemingly unshakable, hopeless feeling that I try to cover with smiles and jokes, but deep inside it is eating every possibility of joy? Recently in the…

    The Magnificence of Being a Woman

    I heard on a podcast today someone ask “what do you love about being a woman?”… and I started thinking. First not a lot came up since, to be completely transparent with you, I have always associated femininity with weakness and disadvantage. Then I started really thinking and asking my soul what “she” thought. And tell me please your thoughts on this… I love the feminine body, the curves, the beauty, and that we are capable of making babies and bringing them to the world. I love our soft, sweet voice and our unique power to help each other and change the world. I love our passion, our ability to…

    The Thing About Drama Is…

    Drama will slowly destroy us; it will create a story in our mind and have our bodies in fight or flight mode like a freaking bear is trying to kill us. Drama IS addictive, and it will downgrade our energy, our nervous system, and our hormones to the point of SEVERE EXHAUSTION, sadness, anger, depression, and disease. Drama will keep us in the wrong momentum wheel. And for what? Why do we do this shit to ourselves? Because we learned it during our upbringing. Because it makes us feel better to trash other people (the ultimate lie to keep ourselves safe), be the victims, and not take responsibility. And, because…

    Your Thoughts and Feelings Might Be Fucking You Up

      THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS HAVE YOU BY THE COJONES… Our thoughts -and the feelings we associate with them- are so important that they determine our personalities, circumstances, mood, health, financial acumen, mental clarity, the way people treat us, and everything else. And to think that we so quickly blame others for our “stuff”. If you don’t like something in your life. CHANGE IT. Thoughts are magnetic! Each thought affects our energetic field. Change your thoughts and feelings about anything, and you change that thing. Physically changing our lives by removing ourselves from what we don’t if possible (most of the time it is possible) is one way to change our…

    Thoughts on Debt and Money…

    As I am studying and applying the principles the Money Mentality Makeover e-course in my life, I realize a lot of my belief systems about debt and buying came from resent years (and not from childhood). I used to have a coach about 10 years ago who today coaches people from all walks of life, but back in the day she focused and attracted a lot of network marketers. I went to her events many times since I was in the industry. I am very grateful for her even though today I respectfully disagree with a lot of the concepts she taught. For instance, she taught that if you had…

    It is Okay If You Do Not Fit In

    Hello my dear friend, If you find you are always trying to fit in, read on… I used to be a great “fitter-inner”. Yet I was always in that unquenchable search for acceptance. I didn’t feel accepted; I didn’t accept myself. I personally have never felt as if I fit in any school group or work environment. For the most part, I have always felt an outsider – the girl with the strange way of thinking, the girl who talks way too deep and way too bold for the average person. The “fitter-inner” strives to acclimate to the environment  at hand, whether it is the office, church, networking group, book…

    First I Got Happy, then I Attracted The Things

    Hello my friend! This happened by accident… When I started to meditate in January this year, my sole purpose was to once and for all shake off the feelings of sadness. I wasn’t doing it as a new years resolution, and I definitely wasn’t trying to attract more money. The depression I had was so strong and so apparently inexplicable, that I just wanted to have joy. Like I have written in previous posts, I have had an overriding sense of joy many times in my life, but it didn’t seem to last. This was due to many reasons that I won’t go into in this post. I tried changing…

    Happy For No Reason

      I understand now at a whole new level what it means to choose your emotions. I now wake up and decide WHICH EMOTION I am going to rock for that day. If I fall off, I get back on. You see, we spend too many years of our lives (if not all) being a victim of our emotions and blaming everything we can for how we live our lives. It is not the shit out there that is making us feel desperate and depressed and angry… it is US who are making ourselves feel those ways. Wanna be happy? Do the shit happy people do… Wanna stay pissed? Keep blaming……

    How to Finish 2015 Strong

    Hello, friend! Can you believe we are 45 days away from the new year? Exciting, huh? I am so ready to move to our new condo in 2 weeks and start decorating! This year has been full of dreams-come-true for me. I spent several months living in Europe, I visited South France, I got engaged to the man of my life for 21 years (we met in Cuba when I was 16), and I began creating my first e-course, “Understanding Self-Worth”. However, there are several goals I did not achieve or even attempted to achieve for more than 2 weeks this year. So, today I looked at the calendar and…

    Self-Love and Its Impact On Your Business

    The term self-love has become transparent from its incessant references, sometimes even superficial, in the last several years. However, the subject still remains the foundation for everything we do; our self-love sets the boundaries for our accomplishments. Self-love is undoubtedly the reason why and how we do and don’t do everything daily. I mean, from how we make our beds, to how we dress and walk, to how our cars look inside, to how we treat others, to what we eat, everything is interconnected to self-love. Self-love is the key to our personality and behavior. How much you love yourself and, therefore, how you see yourself affects your business as well.…
