I guess I was no

Courage and Strength to Live a Life with Purpose

Courage and strength must walk together during the course of our lives, nowadays more than ever! During times of great challenges that many of us are going through right now, it is imperative to invoke our courage! To whom? You may ask…to our Highest Self, the most powerful, and untouched by the Ego, part of us. It knows every aspect of our lives, every part of our being, our joys and our sorrows. Through breathing and body awareness, we can calm down our emotions and slowly bring ourselves into a state of deep communion with that wise part of us. Easier said than done,

Hijacked Brains

It’s no news to any of us that our country and our world are suffering from an epidemic of sick brains. Our brains haven’t been able to slow down, to think clearly, to ponder before making decisions, to remember simple tasks and even to rest. What happened ? Anxiety, Depression, Addictions… Mental Health Issues are growing exponentially over the past years. Several years ago, during my training to become and Energy Healer I heard for the very first time about the “second brain” within our gut. I learned that our gut produces more serotonin(our happiness hormone) than our actual brain and there we also produce dopamine! So, if we

Why Healing With Sounds?

Why healing with sounds? Because we are vibrational beings, with energy pulsating in and all around us. According to Jonathan Goldman, director of the Sound Healers Association,  “people have been using mantras and others sounds for various types of healing and consciousness shifts for thousands of years in different traditions”. Shamans have used drumming, rattling, chanting, instrumental music and other sounds techniques as its primary tools for healing. I have been using in my practice, for several years now, sounds in combination with body work. What I see the majority of my clients experience, specially after certain tuning forks are

When the World Has Gone Crazy

If the world has gone crazy, we don’t need to. And there we are, all together, all(most of us) wanting the same: peace, happiness, love, abundance, health and joy…if all human beings can have that, safety is a given. How can we keep ourselves grounded in our utmost values? How can we not sway in many directions contributing to the chaos around us? We must remember who we are! We must rescue deep within our hearts our inner power and use it for good.  I remember when after my training to be an energy healer, several years ago in Sedona,

Opening the Pathway to Peace Within…Releasing Anger From The Liver

Several years ago when I started practicing yoga and became aware of the energy flow in my body, I had an energy healing session with my yoga master.  She “poked” the right side of my body, on the liver area. I felt so much pain and didn’t understand why. I was told I needed to express myself better, to speak my truth when I needed to because I was holding on to some pretty strong emotions. For a very long time I wasn’t allowed to express my emotions, my frustrations and especially my anger towards a situation of abuse and

Caring for the Kidneys to Preserve Life Force

  In Traditional Chinese Medicine the kidneys are the fountain of youth, the foundation of vital life and longevity,  they store the Essence of Life Force, inherited from our parents. The Energy in our bodies flow when we are relaxed, when we are mindful, conscious of our actions and present at each moment ( not necessarily an easy thing to do). I have learned about the importance of flow of Energy within the body, through yoga, mindful breathing and meditation. I also have learned ( and experienced it) that when the emotions take control of our lives, there is very

Healing Wounds in the Heart for Expansion of the Soul

As energy beings, we cannot expand if our hearts are not open. The wounded heart learns to shield itself for protection blocking the natural flow of energy within the body. Several years ago I  went to Sedona, in Arizona, to be part of an Energy Healing training program. The journey for my personal healing started there. During the training I became aware of the wounds in my heart. Those wounds were causing havoc to my emotional and physical health and well being. My soul wanted to fly, however the weight within was holding me back. The secret to tap into

I Can Just Change One Being…Myself!

When my first son was born 20 years ago we lived in Sao Paulo, Brazil. It was there that for the first time I hired someone to help me with the house work and my baby boy. Jocelia was her name. She came from the Northeast of Brazil, Bahia, and was a little younger than I was. I was 24 and she was about 20. I loved her as soon as she stepped in my home. She looked at me and was never afraid to say what she was thinking, but she was loving, trustworthy, a great cook, and she

The Ripple Effect of Our Well Being

Do you remember the last time you felt really good? Remember how it was so easy to smile, to hug someone and to even not bother when a car just cut you off on the freeway? Remember that you complimented your child for being able to finish the homework without asking for help and your child smiled the biggest smile ever, so happy for having her/his effort recognized ? When I started taking yoga classes several years back I remember the amazing feeling welling up from within. I would come home for my family more loving, more patient and even
