It has been five years of braiding intentions almost on a daily basis and now in the spirit of another birthday that just flew away I want to share with you something very personal, that I know we all struggle with, because I know that the more specific the story is, the more universal it [...]
WHEN THE BODY FUNCTIONS SPONTANEOUSLY, THAT IS CALLED INSTINCT. WHEN THE SOUL FUNCTIONS SPONTANEOUSLY, THAT IS CALLED INTUITION." –SHREE RAJNEESH When we are born, we carry the knowledge of divinity within. If you don't believe me, stare at a newborn straight in the eye, and you'll understand what I mean. They know. You knew. We [...]
You can only understand your journey from the perspective of your future self. When you’re living in the present there’s way too much noise. I don’t remember where this journey began; all I know is I found myself one day trapped inside this body, trying to make sense of the world around me.
One of my earliest childhood memories is my five year old self coming back from school, and entering into my mothers dark room, at the end of a very long corridor. I would always open the door as quietly as I could. The heavy backed-out curtains were closed, and yet, some rays of light, painted [...]

We are finally realizing we have a voice, and we need to use it. The way has been paved for this moment by generations, and [...]
On Parkland Shooting, and why I'm hopeful of the future.
I was discussing the current state of the world with a friend not long ago, and she said that the more she felt the chaos around us, the more she wanted to stay inside her bubble with her son, not caring for anything else. I used to be her, and my bubble was so very [...]
Dress by Pompi Garcia, pictures by Celia D. Luna. I've been struggling the last couple of days to use the right words to express how I feel. If you follow my stories through Instagram, you know what I mean. First it was Irma, who threatend to destroy Miami. She taught me what fear was. Just [...]
I grew up in Mexico, a city drowned by myths, legends and ghosts, celebrating death with music and bright colors, and believing that the spirits of the departed co-exist among the living with their own role in the life of those who love them, and won't let them go. I would attend mass, and look [...]
