When the universe talks to you.

“The Universe is always speaking to us… sending us little messages, causing coincidences and serendipities, reminding us to stop, look around, and believe in something else, something more.” _ Nancy Thayer

This life… What a mystery!

There are certain things that you can never forget… and the story I’m about to tell you is simply one of the greatest series of small weird events that I will forever treasure in my heart.

It’s really crazy if you stop to think that our very memories are what give us the definition of time itself. By bringing them up in our minds, we can relive them and bring them to our present moment.

We were in love in paradise, haha. The Philippines! To be more precise, we were in Donsol Bay.. a very remote part of Manila where technology hasn’t quite picked up the pace yet.. We went there in the hope of adventure and some whale sharks!

On one hand it is great not to have internet, no working Wi-Fi.. It’s almost as if the rest of the world doesn’t exist, but that I won’t simply account to lack of internet. When me and my loved one are together it’s almost like we are swallowed by this big bubble and the rest of the world disappears and our movie starts playing…

And oh boy! What a movie that is.

I can honestly tell you, life can be anything but boring when we are together… Even when I’m bored he starts immediately teasing me with the repetitive and constant saying: Baby are you bored, are you bored, are you bored are you bored… almost like a song he made up. And immediately the boredom disappears.

Oh Nicky, God was in a veeery great mood when he created you!

On this particular day, we had an important task… We needed to pay our hotel bill, and you would guess the good folks of Donsol would take cards… but no…  They were only accepting cash…

We were trying to figure out where to go so we could get cash from a cash point, but things were not so straight forward in Donsol Bay…

So we decided to figure it out, where and how to sort this payment situation, while all we wanted to do was enjoy our holiday and not have to worry about chasing this money.

Our first attempt was to find good working Wi-Fi… because we wanted to book our flights to Nepal which were going up every day, but for some reason the Wi-Fi in our hotel wasn’t good enough. We were recommended to try an air b and b in town that apparently had a good Wi-Fi connection.

We got in the car… Nicky siting behind the wheel. He gave me that look, with his big blue eyes, raising his eyebrows and putting up a smile without showing his teeth, as if he is about to deliver some secret message and boom, he pushes in this CD which has the craziest instrumental song, as if we are boarding a space ship and then he says: Welcome To Planet Earth!

I laughed, it was like… okay, let’s see what kind of adventures this day will bring us. The music kept on playing while I looked out the windows admiring the leaves on the trees… The different shades of green and the beautiful sunshine passing through them…

Earlier that morning, the first thing we did was to jump out of our bedroom’s balcony and jump in the water for a swim. Kissing, hugging, making love. Surrounded by coconut trees… What a way to live life, just writing about this now I get goose bumps and tears in my eyes, and this wave of love and excitement runs throughout my body.

But back to the car… Chasing this little place, looking for the air b and b and the good Wi-Fi… This experience wasn’t quite as glamorous. We found the place, knocked on the door, and this lovely lady came out to let us in with a smile on her face.

We walked in her house asking about the Wi-Fi and said it was well recommended, and if she could help us… but it didn’t look like the universe was on our side… or so we thought.

After half an hour trying and failing, we asked what options would be available for us to get cash and we started to get a little agitated. It’s funny how some things we are used to in Europe can get under our skin when in a faraway country. No working Wi-Fi… That was a no go for Nepal, or further bookings which we needed for the next step of our trip, so we then decided to focus on the next big task, which was paying our hotel bill with no working cash place in Donsol, no banks open as it was the weekend… The next step was to drive to the nearby small town.

We were both a little irritated, this time Nicky was a little more sensitive to the situation. I was trying to keep cool and calm, but of course the stress created a little arguing. We were both determined to solve the payment issue and we both wanted to solve it in our own ways. We wanted to get cash out to pay the hotel but somehow I ended up getting out of the car and he drove away. Damn, we hate arguing but yet we play this role… I was angry and wanted to walk back to the hotel and figure other options out… Nicky wanted to drive to the next town… only to remember we needed both of us to take cash out and I didn’t give him my card, plus I was kind of lost not knowing which way to walk… shame on me… I should have tried to talk things through instead of storming off… Shame on him, he should haven’t left without me… haha, I was also thinking he didn’t know where he was driving to… Because our phones’ internet wasn’t really working either, so Google maps was always going off.

The great thing is that the mobile phone carrier for calls was working, so I called him and said, “Mmm. You need to take my card with you… Can you please pick me up?” He came back, I got in the car, and we started driving.

 “Towards the next town”… Nicky thought we were heading back to the hotel, apparently our sense of direction isn’t the best….

We were both quite angry at the situation and at each other, but after getting in the car we put some very serious faces on and out of nowhere we both cracked up laughing. And somehow it became easier to look at this whole movie and to even enjoy its discomfort…

It’s funny how sometimes this happens. We might be mad and angry, but something just shifts… and the bad vibe between us is broken. Who is controlling this? How does this happen? Because in other moments, no matter how much we try we can be stuck in the bad vibe and working against each other. The truth is, no matter how much our egos are strong and stubborn, deep down in our hearts all we really want is to stay in love and connected and it’s much more fun to laugh and work as a team…

So what is in control? How does this all work? Does anyone know? I’m super far from figuring it out.

But back to our day…

Anyway… We then started to drive on this tiny road that was under construction. Only one lane was working… we were halfway up the lane when cars started to come down, making us go back…

It was quite ridiculous… It was almost as if the universe was pushing us back… And of course we were still laughing but also angry with the adversity and weirdness of the situation. Thank God Nicky is a great driver… he managed to reverse all the way back down the hill, to let all the trucks, cars, and motorbikes come down.  We waited for all the traffic and managed to drive back up, so finally we could continue our journey to the next town.

– What is this good for? Nicky asked God out loud.

We have this thing… the both of us talk to God out loud in front of each other. It did look like a great charade, a big joke from the universe.

We kept on going to finally arrive at this little town and to find out the cash point was not working at all, so we really had no option but to stay longer or try another day. We didn’t want to be in a car driving around, we wanted to be at the beach, swimming with the fishes and enjoying ourselves, but we were doing all these boring trivial things and everything was so freaking difficult.

The good thing was the little town had a supermarket, and for a miracle they accepted cards, so we thought we would buy all kinds of snacks to cheer ourselves up, plus we had no extra cash to pay for stuff in our hotel or the restaurant (which btw didn’t take cards).

So, like two little kids we started getting all the things we wanted to stuff our faces with. We went to the cashier to pay. All the shopping was placed in the paper bag and Nicky grabbed it while I finished paying.

Now the movie gets funnier. As he is walking out, the whole bag breaks and all our shopping is literally all over the street right in front of the supermarket… and what is even funnier is the fact that Nicky decided just to keep on walking forward without even looking back, rising his hands up as if to say ‘I give up’,  (yet he just left and didn’t even look back).

I really wish there was a camera filming this… everyone was looking at him and at me. I also raised my hands and said yeah this just happened! And I cracked up laughing. The packing guy in the store helped me put the stuff back into a new bag while Nicky walked back shaking his head, signalling to me that something is definitely out of order.

We made our way back to the car… and on the way there was this little game house which was an internet place! So I said: Yes! Babe, they gotta have Wi-Fi here… let’s ask…

Once again, where is a film maker when you need them?

First of all, let me give you some context…

Nicky Brouwer is a tall handsome man. Okay I don’t wanna get carried away on compliments, but the guy is hot… and very blond. I already mentioned the blue eyes, right!?  He is standing out in this little town in the middle of nowhere in the Philippines, and the fact he is very “white” is already enough to call all eyes to turn attention towards him, or to identify him as a walking cash machine (yep that happens in Asia).

I’m Brazilian… Funny enough… my olive skin and mixed European background, with a hint of indigenous tribe, gives me a kind of look of  “I could be from anywhere”, so most countries I travel to, especially in Asia,  have a question mark on their faces that asks is this girl from here? And what is she doing with this white guy?  Plus… I’m not that bad looking either…

So let’s just say there were a loooot of eyes looking at us…

So… there we were, going into this tiny internet café made out of wood, full of guys playing video games on old looking computers… We walk in and everyone starts staring. We stopped at the counter and I asked the lady: Do you have Wi-Fi?

She didn’t move… In fact she did not even blink. To be more precise she didn’t even looked at us. She was looking up at some screen so I asked again… again no reaction. I immediately started laughing. This was just too funny. Nothing was working out. Everything was weird.

And finally, after a few more seconds of awkwardness, she looked towards us and said no it’s not working… 

At this point I just relaxed and completely let go of trying to get cash, Wi-Fi, or any easy outcome…

We left the internet cafe (that had no internet), got in the car, and stared heading to our hotel.

I remember asking each other what is going on?

And as we are trying to leave, again on another tiny road (there are many tiny roads in Donsol), a car simply drives towards us.. Now things are getting totally out of control. The car was quite posh, completely black, including the windows… we could not see anything inside of it… no driver… no passengers… Nicky looked at me and said: I’m not going back… I’m gonna get out the car and talk to them.

I tell you, I was a little afraid. For all I knew it could be the Philipino mafia (if there was one, they would drive that kinda car).

I tried to ask him to stay in the car, but I was also intrigued to know who the hell was in there. They didn’t move, didn’t put the window down… It was super weird…

Nicky said he would offer them money to go back… I asked him not to… first of all, we didn’t even have enough cash to pay our hotel bill, hahaha.

But I tell you what, this scene is stuck in my memory. Nicky right next to this car with our shared wallet (the wallet we bought for our couple’s traveling money, which is pink and full of owls, with huge eyes).

Now picture this… he is out, next to this car, holding this wallet, full of owls on it, looking at a black car with black windows. We can’t see any passengers… he looks at me and at the car… nothing happens. He is about to open his mouth to say something, and then the car simply backs away.

Nicky gets back in the driver’s seat… and we drive away.

To this day, we still wonder… who the hell was driving this car?

Was it a man? A woman? Were there more people inside?

Why they didn’t say a word or open the windows?

What a strange day, full of strange situations. Who was in the car?

But when we look back at this story, we look at each other and say it was God driving that car.

Just playing with us. Showing us how this life can be so unpredictable, that things are always happening in all sorts of ways.

Sometimes we are clearly creating our movie, attracting some situations, and at other times everything is so random and unpredictable.

The universe is in constant motion. Things are always changing, emotions, situations…

Sometimes everything is flowing so well. We feel in alignment with it, with our thoughts, with the very air we breathe. It all feels like one.

But at some points things are really stuck and everything is hard… And we might feel lost…

And like in this story everything went wrong, but it became such a great funny story that we love to look back at it and it makes our travels more special and rich.

We went through a lot, me and Nicky… we had so many adventures.

And I just wonder what God would have told us if it was him driving the car. If he/she had turned the window down, what would be the words?

I would like to think the words would be “Enjoy your movie, one day you will be back here in the cosmic soup of creation and it will all be a dream… a memory… but for now, go and enjoy each other and explore this world.”

And my heart can only sigh with love and appreciation for sharing this movie with my best friend, my lover, my adventure partner …

Thank you God, for creating this opportunity to experience all this <3

In the Condemning Of Ego and Mind Be Love.

Here is a thought led by heart.

Nature is perfection. God, as the great creator of all things has created the human experience. We belong to many worlds at once and in this experience we can discover and remember who we are in our totality. By the act of finding Truth in the Love that moves all things in nature and in the different worlds we are linked to.

Mind, ego, personality are things that enable this experience. They are precious gifts given by the Great Creator, just so we can have the joy of finding our Truth in the Love that we are. Instead of negating any part of our totality, inviting one to shower any aspects of separation with love might lead you to see how beautiful your mind, given to you by God, is. Because it allows you to create the dream you are living right now and to experience this life in the way it is. Your ego too has an important service to you, without it you would be still merged into the cosmic soup, but when you shower the ego with the pure love of light, given to you by God to find out how perfect you are, the ego loses its negative aspects and becomes another important and special note in the perfect symphony of creation that is you.

It’s your personality that carries the story of you, and the traits you will find within yourself so you can discover the joy of being way more than your identity. Then you can start remembering your other identities. The collective of identities you have been in the past lives you lived that make part of your cosmic story. Then you can find out the collective of souls you make part of beyond those identities.. You can discover different aspects of yourself.. in different dimensions, in different worlds, you can become more of your own totality and discover more of your truth.

You may also go beyond all that and discover your Nothingness and your Real Truth.

So from that place although thoughts, feelings, forms, time, space or identity might not exist..

From that place, you will see the perfection of the All of Creation.

There will be no need to fight the ego or condemn the mind.

So why not practice that Now?

Be the love you are in all aspects of your life if you are going to spend time debating about those things or putting your energy into a spiritual path.

Practice the act of being Truth, and simply Be Love.

No more rejection, no more. Because all is perfect. Because all is well.

Be Aware of who You Truly Are.

Thanks for Reading,

Love and Light.

Where Are All Those Miracles I Was Expecting ?!

The latest light waves have left many in either a blissful state of being or a miserable state of mind. There have been many talks about September 28th, from conspiracy theories to other sensational stories. The miserable state of mind comes from fear or expectations that lead to dissappointment, it’s pretty much the same. Also, from placing our focus outside of ourselves.

Many talk about not seeing things happening, or not happening as fast as they want to, or exactly how they planned it in their minds and then get frustrated with themselves or start blaming the government or God or whoever, but forgot that they, themselves, are creators of that which they experience. And we are also responsible for the way we respond or react to everything.

But, you see, all these important powerful events, all this light coming in is destined to bring great change and it is so, however they will not bring change FOR you, but THROUGH you. The dissappointment comes from expecting miracles outside of yourself, or passivity. That is a choice. There is also the choice of not only participating in the change, but proactively create it. The highest most profound way of participation is through your BEINGness, with your aware divine human state of being, your authentic Soul essence self – simply being yourself. The proactive creation is when you let that Soul essence emerge to the surface and completely unify with your human self, with each and every atom of who you are now – letting your essence reflect in all your actions. The harmonious balance of that is called being an ascended master. Only an overall blissful state of being can come as an outcome of that balance.

All choices, decisions, ways of being are respected and honoured, it is just a matter of taking responsability for your own, discerning which ones are most suitable to you and really simply becoming clear with what you want to create for yourself and how you want to create yourself. The Path of the Heart is about divine remembrance, self-discovery, but also about creating ourselves as human beings through the essence of our Soul.

As always, it all begins within. You might have to reflect on whether or not you are loving yourself enough to become the highest aspect of yourself you can be, in the highest state of being. I say that because only when we truly love ourselves, we want what’s best for us. It takes commitement, dedication and a genuine self and selfless sense of divine service. As contradictory as that might sound, there needs to be a balance between self and selfless service, going to the extreme of either one of them is unhealthy.

The miserable state of mind, some are experiencing as a result of so much light coming in, could also happen because of what many call “shadow work” , ” dark nights of the Soul” moments/ releasing density. This is either triggered by ourselves or through our relationships, which are at the end of the day an extension of ourselves, mirrors.

Know this is a necessary process that serves us well, it is as normal as it can be and you are not alone, many are being asked to embrace, love, accept and transcend the “shadow self. ” and all aspects of ourselves that have not yet been merged within ourselves.

However, is important not to attach ourselves to this shadow work process, let it unconsciously define who we are in the Now and hold us stuck in the miserable state of mind. Instead learn to flow through it with grace, by adopting a childlike attitude. I have written about adopting a childlike attitude before, I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but I feel very much guided to remind us of this approach. Because, when we adopt a childlike attitude, “shadow work” becomes a child’s play, literally. When you lose some of the seriousness, it is so much easier to just flow with grace through anything you choose to experience and grow from, no matter how serious it might seem in the moment.

Seeing the bigger picture will also help, but the childlike implies a lot less overthinking and overanalyzing and a lot more acceptance and surrender to what is. The childlike aspect of ourselves is the purity and grace of the Higher Self.

Practice patience by being in the Now. In the Now we can only be patient, because we are not waiting for anything, we are not waiting for the future, we are not placing our focus on future events, because we know the Now is all there is, we know we can only create in the Now. Things are not happening as fast as we might want in the outer, but exactly how they should, when they should and for many reasons and they all lead to yours and All’s highest outcome. Just think about how chaotic everything it would be if everything in the outer would change in the blink of an eye. Everything would be a lot more chaotic and we would’ve missed the point. The point is that it is not where we are headed, it’s about how we get there and what we are experiencing.

Just like the famous quote says: “It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.” 

Bottom line is: don’t expect miracles – create them and be One. Allow them to reveal themselves to you and be open to seeing them. They are everywhere around us.

 Happy Thursday!

And thank you for reading,

Love and Light,

The Heart’s Intuitive Intelligence: A Path To Personal, Social And Global Coherence

The Spiritual Heart — is in a way a little like a smart phone, invisibly connecting us to a large network of information. It is through an unseen energy that the heart emits that humans are profoundly connected to all living things. The energy of the heart literally links us to each other. Every person’s heart contributes to a ‘collective field environment.’ This short video explains the importance of this connection and how we each add to this collective energy field. The energetic field of the heart even connects us with the earth itself.

The HeartMath Institute (http://www.heartmath.org) is helping provide a more comprehensive picture of this connection between all living things through a special science-based project called the Global Coherence Initiative (http:///www.heartmath.org/gci.) They hope to help explain the mysteries of this connection between people and the earth…and even the sun.
Scientists at the HeartMath Institute (HMI) have already conducted extensive research on the power of heart, the heart/brain connection, heart intelligence and practical intuition.

Whether personal relationships, social connections, or even the global community – we are all connected through a field of electromagnetic energy. Increasing individual awareness of what we bring to this field environment could be the key to creating a sustainable future, a future that we can be proud to have helped create. To learn more about this research please visit https://www.heartmath.org/

Andrew Martin: Love Is A Force Of Creation And Destruction – Video

In this video, Andrew Martin explains some of the facets of creating the reality we desire, that our Soul desires. Simply the awareness of the blocks that might stand in the path of creating that which you want to, will assist to dissolve them. Andrew adresses these blocks in a very practical manner and hopefully can make you aware of them in your own life, so they can be released, if you hold such blocks.

Note: Contrary to many spiritual teachings, not all desires come from ego and not all desires come from the Soul. This is not black and white at all, it’s a gray area. To discern for yourself that which comes from the Soul or that which comes from the ego you have to feel your way through it, whatever your desire is. How does it feel ? If you are still confused about it, let it go. If it’s aligned with your highest good, it will come back and you will know it is. At the same time, we have to integrate within and in every present moment, the  deeper knowing based on faith, patience and trust that everything in our lives is divinely orchestrated in a way that benefits us best.

” Andrew Martin is an Intuitive, Energy Healer and Spiritual Rebel in Seattle, Wa. Contact me for readings and healings. It’s not always easy facing the truth of who we are. Especially when we’ve spent a lot of time, money, and energy to pretend we’re someone else.
Self discovery is always liberating. I’ve never meet anyone who regrets doing the inner work necessary to uncover a life that feels authentic and true. I am here to help you begin the journey to creating the life you want and it all starts with you getting real. ” – Andrew Martin
