Surrender

Standard

Truth be told,
I was being caught,
Held up in two worlds,
Tried to fight, but then I realized,

I will only win if I surrender.

light in darkness

light in darkness

I gave it all I could,
I tried all I can,
I prayed to all, but I was still standing in that point,
That point of no return.

Years passed by until I found that a warrior is a winner no matter how,
It was lack of faith, abandonment and hate that caused this feeling of defeat.

A teacher told me the other day,
Surrender is the key to winning back your life and continuing your unexplored journey,
Just look out for the signs.

surrender to miracles

surrender to miracles

Surrender and let it be,
Surrender and you will see,
Surrender to life,
And give faith a chance,
Believe yourself a winner in such circumstance
And so it shall be.

when the time is on

Yogi Bhajan “when the time is on”

Surrender like a hero, show up, stand up,
Trust in that miracle,
Surrender to your dream,
Make room for it to manifest,
Surrender, fight with life, not against it
Trust and you shall see,
The light within you will shine past the fields, across the sea,
Glistening like crystals, outshining any dark stuck from that past.

Surrender, surrender, surrender,
And win the fight,
Life is fair and you shall see it all,
Unfolding like a miracle which you once thought is hard to behold.

Trust, surrender, love and ignite,
You are the winner after all!

you are a winner after all

you are a winner after all

Pressed for Words

Standard

Words are tossing and turning in my head as I try to attune.

 

Michelangelo-"i am still learning"

“Ancora Imparo” Michel Angelo, age 87


I am looking for that right rhythm, to share with you my latest journey that features, gurus, great personalities, and real people, or in humble words, ambassadors of life and love, who have started making a difference, in my world and soon hopefully in yours.

I am pressed for words, there is so much going on, in my mind, which is telling me to “write,write, write” and express how I feel, this is so overwhelming, as I want to give this topic and those great people and mentors, real justice in my writing, and those who know me, are aware how this comes through, writing for me, is a metaphysical experience…I let my fingers do the work as they type through tapping on the keyboard like magic wands, and I see and read the outcome in the end…so let’s see what they want to say 🙂

I am pressed for words, as my title goes, for the intention today, is not made up only of words or stories or poems or visuals, it is rather a frequency that I want to share, a frequency that I was able to tap into after being so enriched by an amazing teacher whose name started reaching new corners of the world, his teachings are “technologies” that exist within each and every one of us…and are more powerful than basic science can explain. For those who are interested to know more and if you are not familiar with the name, he is Yogi Bhajan. He is a master, a leader and a guru.

His student, “New York Times best-selling author of May cause miracles”, life changing motivational speaker, one of YouTube’s next Vloggers, also featured on Oprah’s Super Soul Sundays, Gabrielle Bernstein, appeared in my life when I really needed the proper literature and logical conviction to trust, to let be, and to let go. The answer was simply in believing in miracles and by “adding more ing” into my life.

We all deserve to be happy, abundant, healthy and good in our own right, no matter how much we are challenged and disrupted by negative energies that try to squeeze into our happiness. Although it is very easily said, but it does take willpower, real intention, focus and honesty to attain.

There is so much energy out there that we can tap into, to help ourselves, help others, and enjoy the journey as we go by, we can only do that by learning from the wise and carrying their message of truth, beyond the borders of our pen, reaching out to our universe and extending their teachings to our circles, while ensuring proper credit, appreciation and gratitude is given to them, for they are such amazing people who left a trace in this world, touched million’s of peoples lives, created an intelligent awareness that made this world look smaller, feel better, and be more connected in space and time. 

In love, light and gratitude to the masters of today, and yesterday, and my beautiful followers, I close this post. I hope that it has inspired you, as much as it has inspired me, to dig deeper and find answers, so that you can embark on your next journey and start a new story to share.

I know my new journey has just begun…

Beauty and Beyond—Painting with Words—A Dedication

Standard
Beauty and Beyond—Painting with Words—A Dedication

I usually close my eyes and words start flowing through my fingers like magic. This time around, the topic is very precious that my words are being weighed in divinity before I type. This topic is fragile and close to my heart, so writing this requires a lot of consideration as it concerns, the most precious, beautiful, gifted, considerate, delicate, yet powerful beings I have encountered in my journey so far. “They are real women who touched my life .” And so, let us listen to what I have to say and what will come out from my Gypsy Soul.

A dignified image, a portrait of colors,
Scents of courage that feed the senses,
A gentle warrior, armed with words of wisdom,
You are the representation of beauty, a woman who stands by her own word,
A magnificent light, an embodiment of zen, a force of nature,

Portrait of a real woman

Portrait of a real woman

Your eyes tell a thousand stories,
You are the representation of love.
A woman of substance and glory,
You are the manifestation of authenticity,
A woman with eternal hopes and genuine mutual desires, equality reigns your universe,
You are the source of mystery, spreading delightful energy,
A woman who engraves history, today,

Michelangelo-"i am still learning"

“Ancora Imparo” Michel Angelo, age 87

You are the role model, an intelligent being inside out,
A woman, an idol, a peaceful warrior, an entrepreneur, an artist, a painter, a writer, an author, a mentor, a speaker, a worker, an athlete, a champion, a fighter, a photographer, a chef, a designer, a mother, a confidant, an aunt, a sister, a friend, a grandmother, a colleague, a fellow blogger, a neighbor, a relative, an acquaintance,
You are any of this and more,
I salute you;
A genuine woman with a mission,
No matter where you are in life,
You are beauty and beyond.

Shadows of Light

Standard

Light discerning upon us, like flames,
Sometimes it’s pretty, sometimes it’s an illusion and sometimes it burns,

shadows of light

Shadows of light

Troubled by the past, cheated by the present, abandoned by the truth,
A hint of time, a longing for joy, a fear of deceit, from a pattern of unfaithfulness that keeps disturbing my peace,
A bond that keeps unlocking itself, as I grow older,

Abandoned

Abandoned by the truth

A treasure that reveals an empty box every time I touch it,
I know, I am being tried, tested and controlled, as cliché as it may sound,
I am being tried and tested, yes, for my endurance, but I cannot be controlled, that, no,

endure the test of time

Endure the test of Time

A Gypsy like me lives with an untamed soul, that can and will survive it all,

Listen to the Music

Untamed Gypsy soul

So I shall dance with the shadow until the light will learn to embrace it, and, reveal…

Dance with the shadow

Dance with the shadow

The mix of mysterious emotions,
The present characters, no matter how close,
Who will remain those shadows in my life, until they learn to dance with the lights and reveal them passers by.

 

Out of Breath

Standard

A chat between illusion and reality, an eruption of feelings…

This forest is so dense,
It is too dark, misty and cold,
I can hear the ice cracking its jokes,
I can feel my breath breaking,
I am alone.

darkforest

Dark Forest

I am running and,
I cannot catch my breath,
This place is too immense,
It is too damp and the ground too steep,
I am trying not to fall,
I am holding tight to stay alive,
I do not belong in this dimension,
I just stopped breathing and I fell in this unfamiliar place,
Above me is a place too dark and below me is a swamp.

swamp

Swamp

When will the sun come out?
My lovely sun, that keeps me warm, and envelopes me with love and protection,

sunMy lovely Sun

As I face this place that has tried to steal my soul and locked me in this dark cold forest,
I wish for the light, and in my mind I am running towards it,
Searching for a glimpse, looking for a sign, nothing can be seen.

I hate this noisy silence,
I hate this fake smile,
I hate this strange pat on the back,
I hate this look of deception,
I hate this pretense,
I hate this indifference.

Why? Why am I out of breath?

I was once a dancing Gypsy living under the sun,

20130420-204348.jpg
I was a child of the light, blowing golden dust and breathing into the endless fields of lavender,

Lavender Field

Lavender Fields

Why am I in this dark place? Who has cast a spell?

I will not stop running,
I will not give up,
I will keep on searching for the light,
I will not stop dreaming of my sun,
I will not stop breathing,
I will not stop dancing,

I might be out of breath now,
But I am not out of soul.
I will come out of this dark miserable place and,
I will forgive you for throwing me there,

Gypsywoman

I will breathe, I will breathe again and,
Even if you hurt me,
I will blow you some golden dust, to fill your icy heart with love, and color your life with light,

blowmagicdustGypsy magic dust

I am a Gypsy with an eternal soul,
I sometimes stop breathing,
I live different lives,
I taste different flavors,
I fall, I die, I stop breathing,
But my willpower is my fight,
For my life is a beaming light,
And I always emerge…
I dance for love, I breathe for adventure,
I am peace, and I bring peace wherever I land,

Love and Light

Love and Light

I breathe, I breathe, I breathe light.

Will You Tell My Story?

Standard

Will you Tell My Story?

In a book?
In a narration?
In a documentary?
In a poem?
In a movie?
In an act?
In an article?

embrace your words

No.

My story and yours…. is not final,
It is the beginning of a journey to many lands, far, so faraway,
Places so divine that only you and me will know,

a look over my shoulder

Will you Tell My Story?

No.

I am the wind that you breathe,
The heart that beats,
The Love that never ends,
The soul that doesn’t rest .

writers' life mission

Will you tell My Story?

No.

There is no story to tell,
Day by day, hour-by-hour you design your life,
You are the story.

the world at your finger tips

Will you tell My Story?

No.

What is to tell?

A story of a beautiful soul, traveling and learning about life and beyond,
A story so divine that only the rare ones will learn,
A story with an open page for equal minds to walk in and share,
A story left blank for you and me to write, what we desire,
A story to paint with musical colors, creating songs of eternal tunes,
A story unlike any other,

Not written,
Not narrated,
Not seen,

A story where you and me live and dance amongst the words of the universe,
A story shining so bright, from the accumulation and synchronicity of our events,
A story of many chapters, yet not one page to tell,

Will you Tell My Story?

No.

Just feel it, with every sign, with every sense, with all your might.

You ARE the Story.

Feathers

Standard

You make me think,
You make me dream,
You make me realize,
We all can fly.

Feathers

Fly

As I walk through the maze of life,
I look for signs,
I look for fallen feathers on the ground,
With each lovely feather, I see a dream, an emotion, driven by freedom,
I learn of the messages this universe wants to convey, for you were once roaming above, touching freedom, coloring the sky, holding the wind and releasing beautiful energy,

Beautiful Feather

Beautiful Feather

You were once part of a cherished soul that decided to let you go, so down you swirled and touched the ground, you drifted in the pond, you fell in the lake, you swam in the ocean, wherever you have bounced,
I thank you for the wisdom, I thank you for the signs, I thank you for your beauty,

Now I know.

This post is dedicated to my beautiful grandmother who crossed over early this month. I miss you grandma. Until we meet again.

Fallen Leaves…Awakened Minds

Standard

Flashes of images stirring up my mind…of green leaves turning brown and yellow as they fall to the ground.

Hello there…

Aren’t you looking so grand today?

Majestic Grand Tree

Majestic Grand Tree

Hanging strong, up in your beautiful kingdom

Enjoying the scenery from up above

Whispering words of glory, as the wind blows its breeze through your alluring leaves

Spreading warmth and touching our skin with kisses that feel like velvet

Aren’t you looking so pretty and so satisfied?

You smile as you watch the passers by, the loved ones holding hands, the sad ones debating their lives

You empathize when you hear the voices in people’s minds, as they rush past you

Passers By

Passers By

Yet, you know this will come to an end and what you once enjoyed from up above, will become a past that you will reminisce

Fallen Leaves Awakened Minds

Hang on in there

For who you once were….You still are

You might have fallen today, you might be broken

Fallen Leaf Awakened Mind

Broken Leaf Awakened Mind

But your spirit lives on to tell the story of the many seasons to come

Each carrying different feelings, different experiences, different colors, different symbols

Fear not the seasons dear friend, for…

A Look Over my Shoulder

Standard
A Look Over my Shoulder

Touched by beauty and by magic, I realize this painting of mine is not for sale.

As I look through my life, I realize I’m just a passer by and my search for the truth is leading me to different paths, some good and some not so good, and none have shown me the answer.

Where do I look, where do I search, who will I meet and who will I see, who will I trust and who will I love?

Can it be that my journey is coming to an end?

Life. I hate to break it to you, but it is not and it will not, for my Gypsy soul is eternal and I am a child of the universe.

Life. You tried to beat me many times, but I have grown strong, I have grown.

Destroy you tried, hate you sent, lies you made, but you have not designed me… for I am a Gypsy with a free soul..

My existence is an ever changing painting, so colorful, so beautiful, so alluring, you cannot destroy me or my story. Try you may.

Hear me out, for I will only say it once!

My will to live, to create, and to be free is stronger and more powerful than your will to destroy.

My life is a painting and it is not for sale.

I will look over my shoulder only to see a new canvas, everyday, colored with hope, love, good people, great mentors and happy souls.
