When It Feels Big…

It’s tonight, actually…what I’m preparing for.

I’ve had several dreams and visions as to what I want to create in my Life, but only recently did I start to take all of it seriously. I’ve worked with my mentor on 2 separate group programs before, but this time we’re doing 1-1.
Intense. Intimate (which freaks the frick out of me). Enlightening.

He asked me to perform ritual of some kind to mark my commitment to my Vision. My first thoughts were a Temazcal (aka sweat lodge) on the full moon (Wednesday next, 10.8.2014), but The Bigger Picture had bigger plans for me…
No Temazcal next week, but there is one tonight…followed by an Ayahuasca Ceremony.
Yes, my Soul said. Lets do this.

But how to prepare for something so big?

After getting the basic details down (who, when, where, what and how of it all), and making work and home arrangements (funny…somebody else was already working my same hours, so asking to getting tomorrow off and an earlier time today was not as difficult. Winking back at you, Universe! 😉 ), physical, mental, emotional and spiritual preparations were needed…

Sleeping bag – check!
Backpack – check!
Contents of backpack – check!
Medicine bag – check!

Let's do this

Felt like I was packing for the desert

Cleared the Body – a little bit of movement & abstinence (an odd pair, but what the heck)
Cleared the Mind – little bit of journaling + lots of reflection
Cleared the Heart – acknowledged and stayed with all the emotions that came up, even the fear
Cleared the Soul – with a little bit of Song

staring blankly into Space helps calm the Mind

This Is IT.
I’m diving deep.
So help me, God.

Life’s Current Settings

Amorcita Ananta,

It’s 1.24am.
You are sleeping of course, and a dream about Felipe Calderon, Mexico’s previous president, giving a speech about the True Function of Government, woke me.
We are in Mexico (Puerto Vallarta, where you were born), and yesterday the country celebrated 204 years of independence from Spanish rule. (Whether Mexicans and the rest of the modern world are truly free is another story.)

Its funny…I write to you now in English, because my brain thinks in this language (even if I was born in the Philippines, another ex-Spanish colony), but your brain currently speaks in Spanish, the Mexican kind.

You’re learning a lot in school, growing faster than I could have ever imagined possible, but you like it…school, I mean…for the moment anyway. 🙂

My Dream though, is to educate you myself, as did my Mama, your Abuelita, until I entered first grade at 6 years old. But The Dream is to create Soul School…a Progressive + Evolutionary Learning Center for (Star) Children. I was to build it for you…alas! I am no where near! But dont worry! Since the curriculum will be based on Yogic principles, I’ve almost completed my Teacher Training requirements, and already specialized in Kids Yoga. We’re getting there, Baby!

I’ve come to realize however, that while the world needs for us all to wake up and act ASAP, it doesn’t mean it all has to be realized NOW. You are young and you are my priority (after Spirit, and my Self), not a class of God-lings, much less a whole school of you.

In the meantime, Life revolves around morning rituals (Alone Time before you wake, then slowly transitioning your Body+Mind from Dream Time to Waking Life), breakfast + prepping for the rest of the day, kindergarten then daycare for you/work at Mexico Fun for me, reuniting in the late afternoon, shower + dinner together, evening rituals (brushing teeth, story-telling, praying then lullabies/mantras), and some time after you sleep…writing. Whether it’s for the completion of the new book (Evolutionary Erotica compilation), the blog (this one, or the other one), or simply chronicling dreams in my journal…it’s part of life.

2.23am. The computer is still scanning and is at 9%. I’m “writing” this on to my phone. Funny how when I was a kid writing actually meant using your hand (right or left), a pen/cil and paper…but now tapping your fingers on a small screen is considered writing too.

Things change, Love. Beings Evolve…always, in all ways. Remember that, and Be Conscious about It. I love you.

Hasta El Infinito,
Mami ❤
