Would you go back in time and say thank you to all the people who had hurt you for EVERYTHING that they had done to you? Hey, I don’t blame you, I don’t think I would either, because I bet they wouldn’t even remember what I was talking about…
At the age of 14, I had my very first boyfriend. He was intelligent, smart and cute, at least that was how I saw him…at that point he was Everything I could wish for in a guy, we looked so cute together!! The “relationship” lasted a little over a year because he ended up meeting someone else and breaking up with me to date another girl. Now, can you imagine at 14 years old, to be chosen over someone else? The only thought and feelings I had was:
From that very first “love” experience, I thought I needed to give myself up, to who I truly was so to ensure that the next relationship would work, because showing the REAL ME, was not allowed, he may find someone else BETTER than me and leave me. That was what I thought for most of my life! Isn’t that SAD?
Of course, IT IS !! Who could remain hidden and still be happy all the time? Do you know how draining that is?
The good news is, I was not only able to see this pattern throughout my life and turn it around, as you can DO THE SAME in your life. No need to have ALL these lies in the way.
LOVING AND CLAIMING YOURSELF is a process that you don’t need to do on your own. Do you think I woke up one morning and it was suddenly gone? Absolutely not. I had support, a LOT of support, because I needed direction. I know how this works, as I have been there too, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
I’m a self-love and empowerment mentor, an Ayurveda counselor and an energy healer. I can give you the tools and support you need to get you going in your journey and give you clarity in your path.
Pm me, I’m more than happy to help you, in YOUR process.
As 2018 was approaching, back in December, I was feeling being shoveled by so many new resolutions posts on Facebook. A little piece of me was panicking for the fact that I had no “new years resolutions” or “2018 goals”, another piece of me didn’t really care. Last year, 2017, my only and biggest resolution was to be grateful for everything I had at that exactly present moment, every single day, I had no expectations, no attachments or anxiety of “what was coming next”, with the exception that the next was the next thing I would be grateful for.
Some days I was grateful for my food, my car, for the place where I live, for the clean water, some other days I just needed to cry because I had so much gratitude in my heart that the manifestation of such feeling was too much for my human body to handle and, I also had days that I was grateful for the bug in the plant, in my office, because I knew he was there to bring a message and oh boy, I have been grateful for many messages, guidance and the magnitude of love and light that I was able to vibrate and still do, around me. Many amazing things has happened in the past year, for sure!!
As time passes and we fall into the second week of January, I was looking for my 2018 word. I have to say that all the signs have been directed me to ABUNDANCE! Of love, happiness, health, money, excitement and many of the wonderful things that life has to offer…
I’m extremely grateful for the abundance of life I have around me, I can finally welcome 2018!
The challenge for this year is to be grateful for the abundance of amazing thigs in life! #lizbarbosahealings #lizBHgratitudeandabudance365
PS: this was my 2017 post
I have decided to challenge myself this year. Baby steps... I will be nothing but grateful! I will post one picture a day on my Instagram of something I'm grateful for it, so the energy will grow and intensify each day, open more to receive only the Good and the Best. If you want to do it with me, please add the pictures on the comments or use the hashtags #lizbarbosahealings #lizBHgratitude365 - This way i can also keep myself accountable to have this page going too :-) Happy New Year to you all!!
Dear beautiful souls,
On January 1st of 2017, I challenged myself to start a Instagram account and post something there that I was grateful for or anything that could connect me to anyone who was “seeing me”, every single day. I won't lie, i had days of great happiness, accomplishment and laugh, but i also had days that i had to force myself to remember that there is ALWAYS something to be greatfull for. The goal was to increase the gratitude vibration and touch others with something they were in need.
We are in December and I have to say I have accomplished SO MUCH more that I expected!!
The gratitude magnitude is DEFINITELY POWERFUL!!
As a way of showing my gratitude, I’m offering a weekly FREE Angel card reading for two people a week. All you need to do is:

One of the things I have asked myself many times on this spiritual road was, how will I know that I have owned my power, what it means to claim and own your power?
Personal power was and still is one of those huge things in my life and I’m sure in everyone’s life, because poor boundaries, lack of self-love are indications that you haven’t owned the magic wand trophy.
I few examples how I used to give my power away:
Today, on this very wonderful day, that I have started my day with the affirmation “I’m worthy of money, love, health and happiness”, I had my question answered…
As I was speaking to someone who always made sexual jokes toward me (the price you pay when you don’t have health boundaries and an excessive second chakra), I was “hit” once more with one of the not so funny comments. Differently from other times, where I would get myself going in the road of “deep thinking” about what I “should or should not’s” say, because I didn’t want to lose the “friendship”, I used to get so mad at myself because I didn’t say this or that. This time, I told him right away to stop it, that it made me uncomfortable, that I didn’t like it and I deserved to be respected!
Man, it felt incredible amazing, not because I was saying that to him, it was not from the ego, but from the feeling that I love myself so much, so much that, not doing it, would be a huge betrayal! My soul was screaming love and I was finally able to have a sample of it…
The feeling of knowing your worthy and that you are deserving of something was a piece of the puzzle of owning my personal power…It’s even hard to explain, because there’s no guilty, shame or regret attach to it, there is only you, putting yourself first and this feeling… girl, you got to claim to be able to be on top!
Nice to meet you, personal power, how come I never seen you before? Come on in, the master suite is waiting for you! you are the boss!
Much love to you all!!
Today, I must admit that I’m a mess!!
After a great weekend with so much love, learning, releases, a-ha moment and triggering with a tribe a truly accept as my soul family… I’m completely covered in emotions of my shadow self. Spiritual work gives the tools and the direction for the next steps taken and, I’ truly grateful for the awareness, which is definitely a key in the process.
It’s a mix of anger, sadness and worthless sitting somewhere in my body, waiting to be released, worked on, processed and honored.
It could be a horrible thing, but I choose to look at it as a good thing. It’s time to deal with these emotions, to process, since, apparently it come up to the surface so strongly, that I just want to curl in a ball and cry loud, hoping it goes away. Well, it doesn’t, it won’t… it had been hidden for so long, I can’t no longer ignore…
Too long…the closet has opened
It’s time to let it go…
So, I new me can emerge for the next chapter of this journey called life…
Grateful for this journey…
Grateful for this life…
Yesterday, one of my dearest, loving cousins, lost her mother. She is a hero to me, as she took care of her disabled mother for many years.
This made me think about how I often avoid talking about my own dad’s situation. I hadn’t even realized I have so many unprocessed feelings in me about it.
My dad has had at least two strokes in the past ten years. As a result, he no longer has a sense of direction. This most recent time I was back home in Brazil, I witnessed his struggle, trying to go from the bedroom to the bathroom - two doors, and 3 steps apart. I wanted to cry, scream, and even blamed myself for letting his situation get to this.
I have wondered sometimes if it is worth it, to live the way he’s living right now. He depends on someone to do probably 80% of his daily life activities.
I have had to make peace with myself, and understand that on some level (soul?), this was the path that he chose for himself.
One of the many lessons I have gotten from this situation is that I can love him even from afar. I pray for him, I send healing light, and I hold space for him when I think he is in need. I also respect his decisions even though I feel that he has been deciding to leave us little by little - unconsciously of course.
REMEMBER THE GOOD
I was my dad’s little girl, and I remember growing up having a great relationship with him.
Often, when I was a kid, he would take me on his bicycle when he was going to visit a client to fix their tv. This was one of his passions, fixing electronics - he would spend hours, lost in that world of codes to decipher, while I played by his side.
At other times he would give me my baths, let me stay in his bed with him when I was sick, take me to doctors’ appointments, the zoo, the circus – and sometimes, he would wait outside (maybe he didn’t have enough money to pay for both of us? Not sure…), and sometimes he would give me a spoonful of the food on his plate. For some reason the food he had on his plate tasted much better than mine, though it was the same food that it was on my plate!
Once, as a teenager, he took me to one my favorites singer’s concert because I had no one to go with, and when I was heartbroken at 19, he told me that “I would have many boyfriends in life before I found the one.” After I married, I would still sit on his lap, kiss and hug him, watch the news and listen to his jokes.
Having left Brazil many years ago now, to live in the United States, I haven’t had as much contact with him as I now wish I had, and some of my memories growing up have been lost to time. His caretaker is not someone I approve of, and I don’t get to have much say in his care at this point. I’m not sure what level of happiness he’s had in his life - I don’t get to know, and it’s not my right to judge the way I know he lived, and is now living.
The truth is, we all have our own paths to go through, and lessons to learn… that’s the tricky part about seeing someone we love going a way we define as “wrong” or “painful”. We want them (and us) to avoid this or that, but the Universe has a plan which is perfect, and a part of us… whether we like it or not.
FREEDOM TO LOVE
The great thing is that we live on an energy made planet, so we can love someone from anywhere we are.
I love you dad!
With all my heart…
I have been doing a lot work on myself, practically non-stop for the past 3 years, and today a situation happened to me that made me think how easy it is to be unaware.
The Universe is perfect and will find a way to make you work on whatever you need to.
As I was driving to the grocery store after work, a guy cut in front of me. I beeped at him, and he then gave me the finger and slowed down in front of me as much he could. I got so mad at this person… I felt homicidal!!
Then later, after finishing my grocery shopping, a guy in the line, very nicely, moved over and let me go first. I thanked him, and I felt grateful that there are still nice people around!!
Anyway, after going back to my car, I realized how much anger and frustration I was holding from the early situation. I started to cry, A LOT! I cried for 15 minutes, and felt really sad that as humans we have the free will to choose to act the way we want to, but unfortunately sometimes we act from the EGO, instead of LOVE.
Then, I felt a release and realized that I needed this experience somehow. I needed to release something that I was holding that I hasn’t noticed. What was it? I have no clue, but the situation triggered the sadness feelings under my anger.
This experience reminded me that I’m a HUMAN BEING.
…that I can embrace my sadness, anger, selfishness, and whatever shadow sides I have.
Spiritual work is also the recognition of all these things because we came to earth to deal with all of our emotions.
Thank you damn*** for allowing me to have this lesson, and thank you Universe for the experience!
There’s nothing wrong with feeling that you’re being judged - after all it’s just a passing emotion, born of a thought that you have about yourself, which can take many forms, such as:
1. The way you look to others
2. What people will think if you do this or that
3. People won’t accept you if you show the real you
4. Everyone may judge the way you talk
I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to feel this way anymore, if you don’t want to.
The catch is, that the work starts with you - changing the way you SEE yourself, ACCEPT yourself, and LOVE YOURSELF.
Because it’s ALL coming from YOU and only YOU.
I am telling you this because I’ve been there. For many years this is how I lived day in, and day out.
And as I started to do the self-love work WITHIN-ME, I was able to CREATE a whole new exciting reality AROUND ME.
• For example, I manifested a job that paid me enough so I could live on my own.
• Then, I manifested a place to live that matches the list I wrote out of what I wanted – EXACTLY!!
• Then the job gave me a promotion and raise!!!
• I have also manifested many amazing people as my support network.
And much more!!
All this happened because I stopped hiding and began to put myself out there without any self judgement!!
YOU CAN DO TOO! I’m here to support YOU in your journey!
Love and Light,
Do you ever feel like running away? Even the most normal and “have everything under control” human being out there sometimes has the feeling that:
• You won’t be able to make it
• You want to disappear
• You want to run away
• You want to control
• You want to press a button and make it ALL disappear
DO YOU WANT TO KNOW THE GOOD NEWS?
This is your internal GPS, guides, and angels - telling you it’s time to make a change, a move, or anything that will get you back on track, where you need to be… on your life purpose path.
ALL of these feelings are just signs, just like the ones we have on the road when we are driving. Our emotions and feelings are the signs we must pay attention to, to know where to go, or if and when to act.
WHAT IF I TAKE THE WRONG TURN
I know… you must be thinking… what if I take the wrong turn or misinterpret the signs?
It comes on like:
“What if I fail?”
“What if it is not the right decision?”
Trust me, there’s nothing wrong with “failing” or not taking the “right” path. At the end of each are lessons we need to go through and that’s perfectly fine - if it doesn’t happen now, then it will at some point if a lesson needs to be learned.
WE ALL DO THE BEST WE CAN
And, besides, we all do the best we can at each of these times in life. So, forgiving what we did do or didn’t do, is part of the process.
Does this sound familiar? Great! Because I’m a human too!! I can relate!
Much love to you on this AMAZING day!!
Love and light
This is the question probably most of us have when we are looking for a health coach.
A little over 10 years ago I was depressed, overweight (see picture below), and made so little at my job in a factory, that I couldn’t afford live on my own.
I had a very little sense of what I wanted in life or who I was…
I was living life in automatic mode, eating, working and sleeping - day, after day, after day.
I was trying so hard to hold it all together, holding it all so tightly, that It was difficult to lose just ONE POUND!! One freaking pound!!
Why couldn't a 24-year-old lose weight with the diet and exercising I was doing?
Because I didn’t want to let it go.
But not just the weight. I didn't want to let go of the things behind it, which were holding it all in place.
• Beliefs about who I was
• The stories I had under my sleeve to play victim when I needed to
• The judgmental words about me
• The stories I had hidden and tried so hard to keep as a secret because I was too ashamed to tell anyone
• All my failed experiences
You name it!
These things were leaving me drained, with no energy.
Then I began the work of accepting and forgiving myself, taking chances, and putting myself out there. And BECOMING VULNERABLE.
I began LOVING MYSELF and making MYSELF a priority.
Then, I started to shed the pounds, as I released the things that no longer served a purpose in my life.
The girl you see below is an ongoing BEAUTIFUL PROJECT that I’m so grateful for!!
As an Ayurveda counselor, I address food choices, which are a part of the equation, while also looking at the bigger picture. Together we can get you where I know you want to be.
I’m here to support YOU to do the same for YOU.
