Stay on your intended path::: Choose the high road!

Living for the salvation of humanity is about bringing the light of consciousness into all areas of life. It fills my heart to serve you in hopes to inspire you, to be a supporter of unity and change and to fill your life with joy and love. Below you will find a few posts I shared on Facebook after removing myself from a difficult situation and some difficult relationships, it was the catalyst to merging back onto the high road. The detour was scenic and where valuable lessons were learned but staying here was not serving my higher self and was very uncomfortable. If you find your life hard pay attention, it is evicting you from the current situation, wake up! Here is what I did to get back on track (the high road), I hope it serves you the same ...

Sunday Vibes::: Circulating Stagnant Energy 💓✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️ NOV. 13, 2016

Normally on Sunday I devote this day to resting and God but over the past several months I found my energy stagnating ---- crying, lashing and acting out to get my attention because I was not staying on my intended path. Circulating energy for awakening and expanding fell to the wayside. When life falls apart it is saying, wake UP, this stagnant energy needs to be broken up and cleared out! Life will start evicting you from these patterns as soon as you get too comfortable. So today, I´m circulating new energy into my life by changing my Sunday routine. Understanding energy can help you live a better life, if you sit back and don´t do anything, life will do it for you and often times it is not pretty or comfortable, I just experienced this. So today I ask you, what are the things you do a lot of and often? Stop doing it, just for a few days to create new energy. It is crucial to circulate new energy into our lives by making the right choices, by making choices that are productive and will bring us to our highest potential and evolution! When we create new energy and new patterns, the old shit slips away. If you do yoga every day, STOP, go running. If you surf everyday, STOP, go for a walk instead, if you meditate every day, STOP, go to a social gathering. Each time you do something often, an ego is created. Speak to people each day as though it is the last time you will see or talk to them, see the shift happen. So for the purpose of creating new energy I booked a flight to Brazil, I changed the way I take my morning coffee from the norm, I was overly kind and nice to the airline customer service agent when I called to redeem my flight credit and unfortunately had to pay a bit more. Every day we need to make ONE BOLD CHOICE! Starve your ego of your current addictions even if they are positive ones, this creates new energy and breaks up stagnant energy. Act on your excitement, look at the opportunities around you and choose the ones that contain the most excitement. To create new and exciting energy for the purpose of indirect manifestation to live a better life I will make make one bold choice each day, every day, for the rest of my life. Now, it is your turn!!!! What bold choice will you make today? What change from your daily routine will you change RIGHT NOW? Tell me!

  1. Circulate new energy into your life by making the right choices. Try new activities that are opposite of what you would normally do. Even healthy habits can cause your energy to stagnate. Circulating energy will help you awaken and expand. If you sit back and don´t do anything, life will do it for you by making it feel uncomfortable.
  2. What are the things you do a lot that are not productive to your higher evolution? Start to create new energy and new patterns and watch the old slip away.
  3. Make one bold choice every day! Illnesses are stagnant blocks of energy so start making some bold choices to circulate new energy into your life!
  4. Starve the ego of it´s addictions whether they are healthy or unhealthy:: do something new and different. If you go to yoga, stop ... go for a run. If you meditate, stop find a new activity that will also bring you peace.
  5. Meet your shadow side. Apologize to yourself and look in the mirror and tell yourself I LOVE YOU! When is the last time you told your self: I LOVE YOU?


Sunday Vibes::: Higher Vibes! 🌴🍉💓 November 27, 2016

Two weeks ago I was determined to circulate stagnant energy to raise my vibration to attract love, harmony and peace by changing my daily routine and habits. Doing things I don't normally do. Saying yes to things I normally said no, saying no to things I typically said yes. Doing little. Doing more. It's been a life changing experience. I discovered, in the space between yes and no there is a whole world, a lifetime. It's the difference between the path you walk and the one you leave behind; it's the difference between what you thought you could be and who you really are. You change your life by opening your mind and leading with your heart.

  1. Continue to bring variety into your life!
  2. Every decision you make is controlled by your values, beliefs and morals so get really clear on what these are. Make a list.
  3. Keep living your life of intention.
  4. Show others respect even when they do not respect you. See this as your opportunity to show your work. This is how we break the cycle of abuse. Respect your own power and the power of others. When someone insults you, they are showing you a time when they were hurt and insulted. Instead of reacting, acknowledging them and their pain will end this abusive pattern as it sits in the energy field and will raise your own vibration.
  5. When someone is nasty to you say ... I´m sorry your journey is so difficult dear soul. Seeing them as a tortured soul allows you to not take things personally. Walk away. Send out love and compassion.

2017· Game Changer::: Staying on the high road! January 2, 2017

 

Under the New Year´s stars, we danced and danced and danced until my 3am curfew was up!

Graciously excusing myself from the dance floor my wedges carried me not so gracefully down the cobble stone streets as I pushed my way through the dark busy streets of San Juan del Sur to meet my friends. ¨I´m here I yelled, like Cinderella, I made it!¨ as I approached them out of breath at 3:03 am I could see them waiting on the curb patiently in front of my truck as they were making a back up plan to come and drag me from the VIP area where they had last seen me tearing up the dance floor. It was in this moment that I understood that the people who come into our lives are just hypothetical situations to test us to see if we are really on the high road to see if we will continually keep choosing the high road or take a detour from our intended paths. Many new friends and old friends under different circumstances in the course of this evening, on different dance floors, in different areas of the town and on the beach with a background of fireworks crossed my path this evening. Many were surprised to see me out as this was the first time in 6 years I showed myself in the town on New Years Eve. It was fun and interesting interacting with many different characters and blessing each one of them but I don´t intend to spend too much time with a person I don´t want to become. But if you recall, a month ago I was determined to circulate new energy into my life by trying new activities completely opposite from my current habits and routine. Since I have been creating new energy in this way and new patterns the old shit has slipped away! Hooray! I´m currently vibrating at the highest level of love I have ever lived in and my life has become even better. Stepping into the light is where you are reborn. Many people don´t want to be pulled out of the shadows into the light but one day I hope they too will have the courage to join the collective consciousness and co-create with us on this planet. Everything and every situation is an opportunity to grow and evolve. So here´s to anchoring this high vibration and breaking the cycle of abuse in a respectable manner. This is the game changer for 2017! One who is pure in their journey should always stay motivated towards it and inspired towards it. Taking a detour is where you will learn your hardest lessons and where you will grow but just remember that is where suffering and pain resides, be grateful for these lessons as they are gifts. Make the right choices that will keep you on the high road that align with your truth, values, morals and highest self is the journey to be carried forward. The only thing that cannot be taken from you is the love you have in your heart and the high road you insist on walking.

 

Does circulating your energy raise your vibration? YES :::: ....

Andrea Kehler  Registered Acupuncturist, Certified Angel Card Reader, and Reiki Master.  January 2, 2017 Session Notes with Heidi Parker

Written by Andrea ....
The room became still as I called in the final Archangel to bring healing to Heidi. I began the acupuncture session with pulse diagnosis, a form of diagnosis in Chinese Medicine. The right side represents the masculine and the left side the feminine. I could feel in Heidi’s pulses that she is driven by her masculine side. The side that creates, moves, and sends one into action. Her left pulses showed me that she was also connected to her feminine energy, as I could feel gentle, nurturing energy flowing through her veins. The perfect balance for her at this time of masculine and feminine.  

Gently placing my hands on her feet I initiated Reiki and allowed the Angels to guide me.  The first word I heard was strength, and I could feel how grounded Heidi was in this energy. Her entire vibration radiated this personal power, a power that only someone who has seen and experienced a lot would be able to carry.  Heidi’s auric field was expansive, which told me she had created a lot of space for herself. This space would now allow her to support others through their own healing process, and it would allow her to call in new energy. Heidi did her work, and this takes courage. In order to raise our vibration we must have the courage to face our own inner demons. To clear away all that no longer serves us in order to allow our truth, our light, the divine, to flow through us.

We are being called to stand in our truth in 2017, and to claim our spiritual gifts in order to raise the consciousness of this planet. The time is now and I could see that Heidi was ready. The Angels showed me a vision of her holding a cornucopia filled with vegetables and abundance. I saw her passing around this abundance to others, a metaphor for bringing healing, guidance, and empowerment to those around her. The Angels showed me she has already been doing this through her business running an Air BnB but she was now ready to expand and build an even larger kingdom for herself. She was fully supported by the Universe, and Heidi experienced this knowing as well through a visualization of Archangel Michael passing her the keys. She has arrived! Heidi is now stepping out of her Karma and into her Dharma.

 

 

Every experience is an opportunity to grow and evolve. Waiting for others to become Godly only puts your journey on pause. Learning to respond with an opposite vibration to what is being thrown at you will help you eradicate it out of the energy field. If you are in search of guidance by myself or Andrea, be in touch! Heidi@seekingsantoshanicaragua.com to schedule a therapy session in person or online. Love love love from the jungle of Nicaragua. XOXOOX Stay in the light, live your truth and be awesome! Love, Heidi

Your Journey, Your Destiny

IMG_9392.JPG

¨By you this you-niverse is born, by you this world is created, by you this world is loved and protected. If you are driven by a purpose, a cause, a belief you will change your world and thus the world changes.¨ - Heidi Parker

Your soul whispers ...
¨Take the journey, even if it means you have to go it alone.¨
Your ego replies ...
¨I´m scared, no one will go with me.¨
Your heart chimes in ...
¨Go anyway and find your new tribe.¨
.... so you go, despite the uncertainty because feeling vulnerable makes you feel alive and you return home with the energy to redesign your life.

 

Playa Marbella, Guanacaste Costa Rica ... my second home <3

Playa Marbella, Guanacaste Costa Rica ... my second home <3

A vacation is predictable, planned out and boring but a journey has all kinds of unique discoveries; new insights, new friends, possibly a new you. A journey is life changing, it is a tool to help you redesign your life.

Destiny is a tiny seed that has been planted inside of you from the moment you were born. Moments of grace and a journey can feed and nurture the seed so it will grow. Destiny compels us to take the journey in the first place and since we can´t ignore the whispers of our soul forever we go in search of ¨who we want to become and what we are willing to give in this life to get it,¨which starts to fulfill your destiny.

Are you willing to let go of your familiar world and embark on a journey?

Life is a path of integrating opposites, what we are familiar with and what we are not familiar with and trying to bring these two together to learn a lesson and grow. We are meant to grow so we have something to give. Your inner doubt, self-consciousness and ego must be surrendered in order to reveal the lesson and often you won´t know what the journey meant or what you learned until returning back home and marinating in it for a bit. Don´t go in pursuit of an end result, have faith that the Universe is unfolding perfectly - trust.

Our choices have consequences. They make the world a more dangerous place or they cultivate peace. Completing a journey is completing a life lesson to fulfill your destiny.

Ask yourself, what inspires you? What do you want to become? How do you want to feel? - you are meant to grow, so you have something to give .... now go ... your world needs you.

 

 

Here are some photos of a recent journey I set out on in Costa Rica where I purchased a piece of land. Owning my own home and business in Nicaragua for 5 years has been truly rewarding but destiny sent me seeking to feel something different, experience something new, to grow and to birth a new chapter in my life which will ultimately bring me closer to fulfilling my life long purpose, my destiny.

Casa Santosha and your host Heidi, caters to travelers embarking on a journey. If you are inspired by the power of the ocean, the sun rising and setting, nature calling, wind whispering, and spending time with fearless people living their dreams, then Nicaragua and Casa Santosha is the place to begin your journey - leave the guide book at home!

See you soon xoxoxo, love Heidi

Dear Men, Step Up or Step Aside ....

 

All in a span of about 30 minutes a ¨has she learned from her past mistakes¨ kind-of-test was thrown my way. Not believing that the Universe or God ¨tests¨ us but we do get the opportunity to repeat the lesson if we haven´t learned it the first time. Being a person who works in the industry of healing and guiding others one needs to learn who is here to step up or who needs therapy. People never admit when they are hurting and people who are hurting accidentally hurt others. 

Today, an amazing solo 2-hour surf session enabled me to spot the lesson and gave me the opportunity to stand in my truth and power to be that light you are looking for - speaking my truth without apology to 3 men. *sigh*

Step up or step aside I said. Being single does not equal desperation!

Honestly, I´m looking for a conscious man who can join me on this journey and not just talk bullshit. Actions equate to dreams coming true, you can talk about it all you want but unless you take a step forward into the unknown like a courageous person would, nothing is going to manifest - whether we are talking about our dream job, a new lifestyle or commitment to a partner, it all requires positive action. Let´s get real.

Have you noticed some people speak without consciously understanding that words bleed and they have consequences?  Social Media has become a curtain for people to hide behind like in the Movie The Wizard of Oz and that bastard that tried to intimate Dorothy, the Tin Man and Scarecrow, he was a coward - some people send thoughtless messages out into cyber space because they are simply bored with their life and are looking for attention when they are broken and think it won´t effect anyone, well guess what, it does!

Until your words match your footsteps you won´t be able to keep up because if you want to catch my attention, you´ll need to be at my side, doing the hard work because the self-work is never ending. I don´t have time for meaningless bullshit or men who just ended a relationship and need saving or compassion, deal with it. Only you can save you. You´re broken, I can´t save you unless you believe in energy healing then you are on my path to be guided and healed so then I´ll send you an invoice.

The other night I surfed at sunset on one of the most secluded and dangerous beaches living in the moment and believing that all people are good and when the sun went down, me and a friend sat in our wet surf gear gazing at the stars and talked about the planets, the waves, stories from the bible and what our dreams look like and how we are going to take action in making them come true and before we knew it, it was 10:30pm - this is what I will make time for.

I´ll wait for the man who's consistently consistent, who´s actions match his footsteps or damn close, a man who isn´t perfect but he´s honest, a man who values his own time and mine and see´s that time is the most valuable thing we can give each other because we can´t ever get it back. Let´s not waste each other´s time please. If I don´t respond to your messages it is because::::  1.) I´m bored 2.) I don´t have time because I run my own business and 3.) I´ve gone surfing!

Today´s Lesson:::

  • Think before we speak or send a million text messages (is it kind, necessary and useful) Ask yourself, am I feeling lonely?
  • We are allowed to have high standards and don´t need to feel bad about it, raise them high!
  • Set boundaries for ourselves and others to protect your heart but be open until someone proves otherwise
  • Get real by being honest, direct and concise! No bullshit
  • Celebrate being single and alone and dancing in this sacred space. If you feel lonely then sit with that and learn to enjoy your alone time
  • We are ALL deserving of the most real and authentic love without having to make excuses and apologies for wanting it
  • Ask people to step up or step aside if they are talking in circles and words do not match their footsteps 
  • Listen to your intuition, listen to your heart and respond gracefully

WHY ... so we can continue to create the world around us the way we want to and live happy in love with ourselves and each other - we only get this one chance! We DO need each other, let us never forget that. Let´s take care of each other by having respect and being loyal. For the oneness that connects us all. xoxoxo

----love, Heidi

Dream and Do::: Happy International Women´s Day!

To all of those bad-ass women in my life who inspire me!

A dream starts with a possibility. Slowly the possibility gains momentum and grows into a wave of energy - a feeling of being aligned with your life´s purpose. Trusting your dreams and intuition takes practice. Day by day. My intuition never lets me down but sometimes I doubt myself. STOP DOING THIS. Successful women rely on their gut feelings to make important decisions, we analyze the facts but we go deep within our own souls and wait patiently for the answers to emerge. Sometimes we find the answers in the middle of a yoga practice, while floating out in the ocean, while cooking, in the bathtub, sharing a meal or drinking a glass of wine after a tough day. Do you sense a rising power within yourself? You must act upon it if you ever want to make a change. Trust yourself and do based on your consciousness, this is how we make our dreams come true! To create a network of authentic relationships we need opens, directness, honestly and vulnerability if we are to succeed in the long term in this current society. We need each other. Our main purpose is to understand we are not separate from one another but we belong to each other.

Now go … the world needs you!

Surfing beats the crap outta you, how to put the love back in!

Chris Madden Photography, South West Nicaragua

Chris Madden Photography, South West Nicaragua

South west Nicaragua delivered one of the largest swells Courtesy of mother nature May 2 - 5, 2015. those of us who paddled out one day or all five at any given surf break got the crap beat out of them!

As I write this, the smell of Tiger Balm and a mix of essential oils fills the air and even though I just woke up, I´m tired. You must be feeling the same after that last swell and here it comes again! My upper and middle trapezius muscles are extremely tight as the whole right side is laden with muscle spasms. During yesterday´s surf session I could barely look over my right shoulder but that did not keep me out of the water. Not to mention, the bruise on my left upper thigh is a reminder of getting smoked by the lip of an unforgivable wave and being nailed by my board on the way over the falls, awe the impression one wave can leave, literally. Not to mention the countless jellyfish stings and shark sightings, but that is just part of the game. Two days ago having comforted a neighbor after she lost her fiancé to the sea a man´s voice over the breaking waves yesterday calling for help could not be ignored. Paddling over to him quickly as possible became urgent. After calming him down, I managed to get him safely to shore, he had exhausted himself trying to escape a strong rip current. If this happens to you, paddle horizontally toward the shore, not straight in until you escape it, try not to panic and call for help.

This morning I drug my sorry ass out of bed, rubbed my injuries down with essential oils, popped an ibuprofen, drank a glass of lime water and laid on my yoga mat with a massage ball. (highly recommend traveling with one of these along with some essential oils which I will mention further down this blog). This is all I could do to ease the pain and hopefully get back out there this afternoon. I mean really, all surfers care about is paddling back out, no matter how severe the consequences are. I´ll be honest, I´ve been lazy on doing my regular yoga practice and I have no excuses, this injury is like nails on a chalkboard reminding me why I need to get back on track and here is how I will do it!

When the waves are firing, you need to be at the top of your a-game !!! 

 

 

Here is how to put the love back in ...

 

1. Sleep 

Sleep is the most important time to recover and adequate sleep provides mental health, hormonal balance, and muscular recovery.

TIPS

  • Sleep 7 - 10 hours per night! Athletes needing more recovery time require 10.
  • A minimum of 7 hours is necessary but 10 is best for most athletes who surf hard or big waves. Everyone is different but you know what you need, listen to your body.
  • Go to Sleep Before midnight! Hours slept before midnight are the most crucial in recovery.
  • Rise with the Sun! Waking up with the sun, not hard in tropical countries will give you the most energy for the day, setting your rhythm with mother nature´s clock is the most natural and beneficial to recovery and increasing energy levels.
  • Sleep with Fresh Air! Try to avoid air conditioning as it removes the necessary moisture from the air and your body, fresh cool air is best. Sleep with a fan and in the most natural environment as possible without artificial light.

 

2. Hydration 

Water Water Water! Beer and coffee does NOT count! A surfer cannot drink enough water. Most of the time we are in the sun and salt all day which is very dehydrating. Add the love back in and drink as much water (not beer or coffee) as you possibly can. Alcohol and coffee are dehydrating and should only be consumed after you have had plenty of water.  You should be waking up in the night to pee, this is an indication that you are drinking enough water.

Stay hydrated with fresh juices

Stay hydrated with fresh juices

Tips

  • Upon waking, drink 2 large glasses of water before you have your morning coffee. Herbal Tea is better but I´m a coffee drinker so I get it. Try to drink water or fresh fruit juice before you consume coffee. Remember, you have just slept 7-10 hours without anything and your body starts from a dehydrated state.
  • Add lemon or lime to your water for added vitamins and flavor. (Essential oils)
  • Watermelon juice with lime and Himalayan sea salt are very hydrating.
  • Fresh fruit juice made from a juicer or blender, not bought from the store can be consumed in addition to water but not in substitution.
  • Go to sleep with a glass of water by your bed. If you wake up in the middle of the night, drink the whole glass or drink it upon waking.

3. Eat healthy

Nutrition. If you are traveling it is important to select healthy options for yourself. Make sure to eat as many whole fruits and vegetables as possible.

Tips

  • If you are in Nicaragua, you can easily buy and prepare fresh fish and seafood. Serve with beans and small portions of rice and avocado without breaking the bank.  In a restaurant ask for beans and rice served separate because in Nicaragua they don´t use the best cooking oil when they mix the beans and rice in a not so healthy dish called gallo pinto. Ask for boiled plantains, not fried.
  • Bring healthy snacks with you from home as most small towns in Nicaragua do not carry healthy options. Although cashews and raisins are available, you may want to bring a variety of nuts, salmon jerkey, dried fruit such as blueberries.  A jar of natural peanut butter and a spoon.  
  • Your diet is key for reducing inflammation. Anti-inflamoatory foods Ginger and turmeric (add to smoothies or to any seafood dish). Avocado, fish, leafy greens, dried blueberries, garlic.
  • Replacing processed foods with whole, ideally organic foods will automatically address most of these factors, especially if you eat a large portion of your food raw.
  • If you are lucky enough to have surf where you live cook for yourself as often as possible so you know what is going into your food. Try to shop organic and the perimeter of the grocery stores and avoid the center isles where all of the processed foods are.

4. Yoga, Stretching, Self -Massage

You need enough flexibility to move well in and out of the surf and remain pain free.

Chris Madden Photography

Chris Madden Photography

Tips

  • Stretch daily!
  • Attend a daily restorative yoga class or a class with stretches geared toward surfers.
  • Get a weekly or monthly sports therapy massage. If you don´t have the budget for yoga or massage do your own stretching and self care-massage with a massage ball or tennis ball. Learn a few key yoga stretches and do them on your own.
  • Don’t get caught doing the exact same stretches you’ve always done. If you don’t know any new variations ask a yoga teacher friend for tips, look through youtube, read magazine articles while on your flight, attend a yoga class before traveling or seek out a yoga or a massage studio while on the road and always be learning.
  • Self Massage. Self-identify tight areas and work on them.  Travel with a massage ball or tennis ball that you can use on your trigger points, the tight spots in your muscles. You can simply lay on your massage ball, as you use your body for pressure and movement to encourage the ball to get to those deep spots and also encourage your muscles to relax. They are perfect for releasing tensions in the shoulders, back, legs, buttocks and neck. Use them as a massage tool and include them as part of your warm up stretching in the morning and before bed. Tight muscles and trigger points sometimes need assistance to return to healthy normal tissue.
  • Yoga pre-surf stretches can be done on the sand before entering the water or at home before you leave the house. You don´t need an hour, 15 - 20 minutes is better than nothing!
  • Increase your under water time. Sit in a comfortable seated position, start by matching your inhales to your exhales with a 4 - 6 second breath count and then hold it in between each inhale and exhale. Start each morning with 10 reps.  This will also help when surfing big waves. Clear your mind. Make space before you enter the water. This will also eliminate stress and an anxiety you experience through the day.

Why use essential oils over prescription drugs?

There is a subtle bio-energy that flows through all organic life. It goes by many names and is sometimes referred to as Chi or life force. This energy is expressed as an electromagnetic vibrational frequency – and pure essential oils have the highest frequencies of any measured natural substance with can assist in healing the body, cells, and tissues faster.

Why avoid Inflammation?
Inflammation is a protective response that involves immune cells, blood vessels, and molecular mediators. The purpose of inflammation is to eliminate the initial cause of cell injury, clear out necrotic cells and tissues damaged from the original insult and the inflammatory process, and to initiate tissue repair.

The classical signs of acute inflammation are pain, heat, redness, swelling, and loss of function. Inflammation is a generic response, and therefore it is considered as a mechanism of innate immunity, as compared to adaptive immunity, which is specific for each pathogen.

Inflammation is tightly regulated by the body. Too little inflammation could lead to progressive tissue destruction by the harmful stimulus (e.g. bacteria) and compromise the survival of the organism. In contrast, chronic inflammation may lead to a host of diseases, such as hay fever, periodontitis, atherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and even cancer (e.g., gallbladder carcinoma). Inflammation is therefore normally closely regulated by the body.

Gringos always fuck it up ~ not always ...

Gringos always fuck it up ~ not always ...

After ....

It begins with a dream. An empty space.

A desire to fulfill both... with love, passion, purpose and hope for a sustainable future.

Accepting that we can’t change the world but determined to change ourselves while believing that our actions will become contagious and inspire positive change in others, this is me, this is all I can do, living my purpose and walking my intended path.

Being in Nicaragua for almost four years was not getting away from it all but getting in touch with it all. And over the years I’ve learned how to carry that with me any where I go. Internal peace and acceptance for who I really am, not apologizing for it but owing my imperfections and living for me and not for what others believe me to be.

My intention to live consciously with simplicity and awareness while having love and compassion for all beings requires constant awareness. My daily actions and the way I live is meant to inspire you, not just these words on the page, although they are necessary as well but action is the main requirement in initiating the change.

My life has been an evolutionary process born out of abundant tragedies like a Hollywood Film, a drama based on human suffering that invokes an audience.  Instead of falling into destructive habits, my hardships enabled me to seek inner strength to live a life of health and wellness. Forcing myself out of bed each day wasn’t always easy, it took consistency, self-work, self-love, healing, changing patterns, taking risks, realizing dreams and acting upon them was the only way forward. Step by step, forward, not looking back.

Life is an evolution and a transformation that comes out of burning down to the ground and rising up out of the ashes to rebuild a new and better you. The destination, the ultimate goal is to find peace within. It never gets easier. It has only gotten harder but somehow I get better at rebuilding from a solid foundation. Each time I create something new it’s like birthing a child. It’s not easy but rewarding because this child is essentially you.

I don’t know where you end and I begin. You are the universe and so am I.

Life is a constant flow of energy. This I know. This is all I really know. Because I can feel it. You can’t rush a river. You can’t slow the creative flow, you can only surrender to it.

Not from my ego, but from my heart ...

I’m so very fucking proud and grateful for discovering my life purpose! Over the past four years I have been taking my greatest risks and hurdling some of the hardest life lessons but it has been the most rewarding moments in my life.

This year Santosha OrgaNica & Boutique was born. Through my time in Nicaragua I saw an opportunity to bring something positive to the little touristy beach town of San Juan del Sur.  It was important to me as a foreigner living here to contribute to the growth of a place positively through health and wellness.  In my time here, if anything, this is what I want to be remembered for. What do you want to be remembered for?

My dream to share my passion for a healthy lifestyle through a retail store finally manifested. The concept became a niche and became the first organic store carrying natural products. My childhood friend Melissa joined me and together we brought this dream to life, because two are stronger than one.

After successfully owning and operating Santosha OrgaNica & Boutique for 9 months we realized it wasn’t our passion to stay in the operations of our retail store. Creating and cultivating this store was part of our path and purpose but then the ultimate goal became clear, we must pass the torch and empower someone else who had a similar dream and a determination to keep the dream alive. Like a true artist, you can’t hold onto something beautiful once it’s been created, the artist must pass on their work for someone else to cherish. We listened to the soft whispers of our hearts and allowed (God), the Universe to guide our decisions with positive intention.

We are not only a part of this revolution of change, we are the change. And as all business transactions should be, we negotiated a price that not only involved money but a vehicle as part of the payment. It’s business as usual but not really usual. We shared in joyous tears, compassionate hugs and handed over our baby, our legacy - and the keys!  

I can really only speak for myself ... but I think it’s safe to say that a part of our hearts and souls, mine and Melissa's, will remain in the physical store space - because we meditated there, lived there, prayed there, created there, loved there. The store is a physical reflection of our souls. For those of you who had the opportunity to visit, thank you for sharing in the experience, and thank you for supporting our dream and the world in a conscious way.

Be the revolution, embrace the shift and accept that hugs are replacing handshakes in a business deal!

She pulled the trigger...

I dreamt about you last night and even though you’re not here in body form in this world anymore, in my dream you were so real. So real that I woke myself up to escape you. From as early as I could remember you were never a loving nurturing Mother. You always manipulated me into hiding the real truths about your actions from others but your lies will not remain secrets any more in my attempt to shine a light onto the black dark shadow that tried to swallow me whole my entire life. These secrets have been burning in my heart and soon they will turn into butterflies because sharing truth, removing the mask, living in awareness and opening my heart will end past sufferings and lead to transformation. In order to create awareness and more healing in this world we need to be real so all of God’s children will be protected, so abused children won’t have to lock themselves in their bedrooms. At the age of 9 you told me, “If you could do it all over again you would have an abortion.” God could never understand the hate you felt for yourself and me, a beautiful child. It has taken my entire life to dissect the lessons, understand the true nature of karma, gain knowledge about past lives and to heal my own chakras. Now that your gone you will never have another chance to utter words of hate to me. In this moment birds are calling to each other, the wind is howling through the jungle and you might be screaming but I can’t hear you. As the waves crash on beaches up and down the Pacific Coast and all over the world my soul will live in peace for the rest of its days. I forgive you. I love you.

As I watched my neighbor fidgeting on the other side of the stone fence the light from the rising sun made the leaves on the tree behind him appear incandescent, each leaf was shining so brilliantly my erratic mind became mesmerized. A blue sky with little clouds sprinkled the dry earth with a misty rain, an enchanting jungle moment considering the circumstances of my neighbor’s visit. An overwhelming amount of gratitude flooded my soul and my heart thanked Mother Nature before he could speak. As I stood in my door way not welcoming him in through the gate not wanting to see anyone, feeling paralyzed, it was apparent he was searching for words. Holding our gaze for a moment he broke contact and looked down at the earth and mumbled, “Your’e stronger than me.” He wasn’t the first person to tell me this in the recent passing days and his words left me feeling weaker, unable to speak and remained silent.

His condolences for the loss of my Mother was genuine and I appreciated him stopping by. Forgetting he had lost his brother to suicide, his pure empathetic energy was felt from across the fence and minutes later I offered the same apology. My heart ached with guilt but feeling his heart ache too was a beautiful painful reminder to an identical loss and the oneness that connected us all. We bowed our heads in silence, or maybe it was shame, knowing the self-loathing that eventually fed the ego of our loved ones to end their own lives. We both inhaled deeply and sighed out loud and gave each other a shy wave as we parted ways.

It’s true, the razor blade of an ego mind can bring a person to a breaking point. If self-loathing feels like a warm blanket on a cold night share your feels with others and ask for help. If you see family or friends struggling, don’t leave them alone to suffer. Finding a life purpose and learning to love and forgive ourselves and others is necessary and urgent before it is too late. If you know someone that relishes in negative self talk, don’t just listen, take action, some people need an intervention.

Today, I’m sharing my story with you, not for empathy or sympathy but so you know you are not alone. We are all connected and what we do can affect others. Our choices are important and although ignorance is bliss it is not reality, nor awareness or consciousness and it does not help to progress the oneness. We are allowed to make mistakes and we are allowed to forgive others and God WILL forgive us but first we have to learn to forgive ourselves, to accept our humanness and to understand that unless we learn to love ourselves and forgive ourselves God never will be able to because God is within. All changes start from within and then the transformations and evolutions happen from that point but it all begins within.

Spending time alone allows me to listen to the silent whispers of my own heart and not hear the opinions, judgements and beliefs of others. Being alone without thought strengthens my true intentions and life purpose to live at my highest potential.  Sometimes the obstacles that get in the way are generated by our own magnetic energy and karma but other times we are affected by the oneness and actions of others because we care, because we are feelers and because we cannot look away from another persons pain because it is our reflection and we must act because we hope someone else will act when we are in a time of need. People go on throughout their day and may not worry about another person who could possibly be hurting because they think that person is strong but the ones that appear strong are the ones that need the most love because on a daily basis they are putting out so much positive energy that when they fall down, they fall hard and remain weak from a loss of energy. People who live out their purpose are constantly working on evolution and transformation requires a lot of energy out. They appear strong because they have no other choice to remain a positive influence.  

It’s true, the crazy ones truly are the ones that change the world and I never understood how that could be possible but I understand it now because I’m one of the crazy ones. Crazy comes from living in awareness, it is not blissful it is hard work! Owning the past, our archetypes, our flaws, our beauty, our ugliness to the core, all of it wrapped into one beautiful package and then by gifting it and sharing it with the world the healing process begins. Not pretending to be perfect but showing your humanness and sharing your story, by giving your gift of imperfection over to the oneness and God, to prove that you are not afraid of change, to accept the human qualities behind all of the energetic qualities because yes we are pure energy but we are here in this energy form to have a human experience and if humans were meant to be perfect then by default we would be programed to not make mistakes. We are here in our human forms to learn the lessons given to us by our own You-niverse and they will keep repeating until you own up, deal with your own shit and handle it! Grow your intentions, awareness and consciousness and contribute to the one-ness. Quit pretending we are not all connected. Teach this to your children from a young age and teach it to your neighbors and friends children, to your next door neighbor. By changing your own actions, by doing, people will follow your bright light. Sometimes we have to speak, sometimes we have to share our stories but actions speak louder than words so it is important to live what you speak. Walk the walk if you are talking the talk. I started the talk before the walk because that helps with the manifestation and then one day you have to start walking in this truth because it starts to irritate your soul like nails on a chalkboard and then you have no other choice than to make it right, to live your true intentions and to walk a straight path.

I’m not saying you won’t fall off the path from time to time. You will trip, you will fall down, somedays you will turn and run the other way, you will get lost, some days you may crawl some days you will move forward with the right energy and all roads lead to Rome, all roads lead to the center and this is your purpose, this is the oneness, eventually we will all make it if we can just try our best to stay the course and encourage others who are doing the same. Try and do this without ego. Try to share your true story and your true colors and don’t be afraid of what others may think because even though they have their own opinions you just need to move forward and not stop and listen to the gossip because that is like putting on your own ball and chain, it will slow down your momentum. If you have people in your life that are not supporting you it is time to start spending time with the people who do love you and support you. Even the people who are in your life that speak shit about you but have not communicated any issue to you due to their own issues and fear, move on.

What are you going to do is the question? How are you going to find your purpose? You don’t need your Mother or Father to die to recognize that life is precious.

It is never too late to learn to sit in silence and just be so you can FEEL. We as as society have learned to ignore our gut instincts and our hearts. We listen to the little voice (our egos) inside our heads to be our GPS navigation and until you learn how to reprogram your GPS you are going in the wrong direction and you will never reach the center of Rome. Home is where your heart is and we need to start carrying this with us every where we go. If you are packing for a trip or rushing out the door to work stop for a moment and ask yourself if you have remembered your heart! When you walk out that door you better have this with you. Also, take your ego because that can help you in survival situations but when it acts out of control or speaks louder than your heart you need to learn to control it and silence it.

Lately I’ve struggled to get to my yoga mat, hardly surfed laughed or shared my feelings. Daily anger, depression, confusion, frustration and sadness are comfort foods but today I realized it is the sharing of our individual stories, the tragedies, our losses AND our beautiful successes are the umbilical cords of our souls that connect us for the purpose to change patterns, learn lessons, elevate consciousness and awareness. This defines our purpose and furthers our intentions that guides us down our dark path that we sometime wander aimlessly until finally, once we are brave enough to share our true suffering and acknowledge and accept our humanness not letting embarrassment or the opinions of others paralyze us from stepping out our own front door, the light is finally given permission to work it's magic. It slowly starts to shine out through the pours of our skin leading us the rest of the way home, and home is the heart and the heart is your true GPS and becomes the best friend you can't live without and is your reminder to your purpose and the map to understanding your You-niverse, the God within and the reason we need to get out of bed every day. Our hearts are the reason we trudge down the path when we are knee deep in shit, we crawl we struggle through the blood sweat and tears because the day we realize it isn't over yet and the choice is ours is the day we give ourselves permission to enjoy life without letting fear do the talking.

No, I’m not stronger than you, I’m just no longer living in the state of “ignorance is bliss.” I’m living in paradise and I will continue to struggle daily in this beautiful life but I will still pick myself up when I fall and I hope you will be here to help me wipe the dust off, kick me in the ass when I’m not motivated, point me in the right direction and tell me to keep going. Even if you are not here to help me, eventually I will find my way again because that is what a person with a life purpose does. The light starts to shine again and even brighter as the days march on. A person with a purpose stops listening to the ego and packs their heart with them daily because they know it is the true map that will guide them to the center, to the oneness to the highest potential they can be because we only get this one chance in this body to learn these lessons, to understand the YOU-niverse and to live in happiness because we are finally content with ourselves and our life choices.

Thank you for loving me.

I’m here for you. Reach out if you need me. I’m present. I’m alive. I’m grateful. I love you.

Namaste

Avocado Key Lime Pie - An orgasm in your mouth. Vegan & Raw

I love good food, I love good food, I love good food!

Food has never controlled my life but food plays an important role in my life. Initially living in Nicaragua posed it's challenges in finding key ingredients necessary to maintaining a healthy lifestyle but that changed very quickly as I educated myself on what was available in the local markets and nearby farms. It wasn't long before discovering that Nicaragua is one of the best place on earth to indulge in nature's finest super-food organic products if you are willing to take the time to educate yourself and go seeking.

The word diet scares me, personally I don't have the will power to say no to things I love. Having a healthy lifestyle dictates my choices when it comes to meal preparation and I consider myself a flex-itarian. I eat what I want when I want under the condition it will make me feel good on the inside and won't harm others or have a drastic negative impact on the planet. It is my life purpose to inspire you to live a healthy lifestyle. May you indulge in the richness of what your heart is seeking to determine what the necessary key ingredients are in creating the perfect balance within your own body.
