One of the things I have learned on this conscious spiritual journey is, every time i feel triggered is because there is something that needs to be worked on.It wasn't always like this, i used to get mad at people and situations as a way of looking for a reason or someone to blame for things i didn't have "the balls" to take responsibility.
We try to blame the government,
We try to blame our family
We try to blame our job
We try to blame the cashier at the grocery store
or even the dog that didn't stop barking lol
Anyways, we are pretty creative beings!!
We all have being there at some point and that's OK, it's a human setting, checked!
I have learned this the hard, or no so easy way…
First things first, when I hired one of my first spiritual coaches and I have had many, I wasn’t aware that I was paying that person to trigger me and push me to face all the ghosts I had inside, from the feelings of abandonment to the fact that I was so afraid to love and be loved.
I remember in one of the sessions while leaving, I started to mumble to myself, “Yeah right, she knows nothing, who does she thinks she is?” just because at that moment a can of worms had been opened and I didn’t know how to deal with, aka, inner-child issues that come up to the surface.
Years later, I realized that by paying her and being in a session I was giving her permission to use her experience, to channel, to use whatever tools she had under her sleeves in order to help me.
Same can happen when you ask for help, you must be open to how you going to receive, release the control and take in. The help may not come the way you have anticipating or it is expecting. In fact, sometimes we miss opportunities because it is not the way we have imagined, when it comes to us.
Between coaching, therapy and inner work, I was able to process a lot and I am still digging and removing the levels of it. I keep asking those for help and open to receive what the feedback will be. If you think I no longer get triggered, you would be wrong, I certainly do, then I dig why, I look within, and I take responsibility for the way I am feeling.
Is the process always pretty? Many would say no, but in the mist of anger I also have learned to appreciate the moments that my shadow side takes over. Now, I would say thank you for all of those who has been on my way, so the lessons can be learned and I can claim one more piece of who I am.

Did you know you create your reality, even if you are not aware of it? What I have been doing lately, is being aware of my thoughts and things that may come in the way of me manifest what I want. As you may know mindset plays a big part on the game of creation. I start to watch my beliefs, I write it down by keeping a journal with me, if I have time, I journal about it right there, otherwise I go back to it later. For example, some of the ones that maybe showed up when I told you to write down 3 things you want to create until the end of the year:
1 – There is not much time left,
2 – My dream is too big to be created in such short amount of time,
3 – These will never happen this quick,
4 – with the luck I have, this will not come along,
5 – I am not great of a creator to be able to build such things.
6 – This takes too much time and energy
And many other thoughts that cross our mind. The secret here is, make peace with the belief by process it. You may be able to do in one sit of journaling, or days of going through your own healing process and replacing by a new belief.
You are a powerful creator!
Did you know we all have an “internal driving system” almost like a GPS, but way better, giving you daily guidance and clear direction of where and when to go?
SENSE OF SELF TRUST
AND anything else your subconscious mind can throw in the pile creates a veil that doesn’t let you see clearly.
I love when I do a reading to someone and I can totally see in their faces that I am not telling them anything new, I am just confirming what into at some degree they already knew…
And when I say that I can completely see on their faces not only I sense of “I knew it”, but damn, why didn’t I believe in myself enough
I tell them to trust their gut feeling that is ALWAYS THERE to support them. We all have this. It’ a factory setting that it’s installed in everyone’s soul…
It takes courage and practice to start believing in yourself and your intuition, you may be “wrong” sometimes, by getting mixed with your conscious mind that try to control everything, but among “errors, mistakes and rights”, the lessons are much bigger than not trying and avoiding the ability to gradually step into your own wisdom and power.
I did it, made mistakes, learned, made mistakes and learned and learned and learned and I am still learning, so do you…
Believe in yourself…
"Amaterasu is the Sun Goodness of Japan. When insulted by her crude brother, Susano-o, the storm God, she withdrawn into a cave and refused to come out. Distressed by the withdrawn of the Sun, Uzume, the Shaman-Goddess, did a comical bawdy dance to entertain the Gods and Goddesses and to provoke Amaterasu's curiosity. When Amaterasu opened her door to peek, she was dazzled by her own beauty, reflected to her in a mirror the Gods and Goddesses had installed, and came out."

Dear Beautiful Soul,One of the reasons why woman come to me is to lose weight by following the Ayurveda cleansing guidelines. There is certainly nothing wrong with trying to lose some weight, feeling amazing and on top of that give your digestive system a reset, also going through the program gives a whole new perspective about your body. However, some of those people come back to me a couple months later because they want to lose more weight, I explain to them that as long they keep their body functioning healthy according to the Ayurveda lifestyle instructions, they won't have a problem in loosing weight as i don't suggest anyone to go through cleansing process at least 8 months apart, case by case, and some people I would rather do every 12 months, with mini cleanses in between. Think with me, when you do a full 21 days body cleanse, it's like you will be killing everything in your body, the bad and the good, so your body needs time to strength and repopulate the system, so doing several times will weaken your immune system and leave you open to receive the unwanted tenants.For me, Ayurveda is more than a lifestyle, is a way of perceiving my physical and energetic body in a whole different level. I have learned and experienced that NO ONE in the whole Universe is like me, so i can't compare myself to anyone else, I am an UNIQUE BEING!
Most of us at some point acquired the idea that we must look a certain way, have a certain weight on the scale, have a hair that doesn't get messy, walk on high heels, have your nails ours done or whatever bullet must be added to the beauty manual of a "woman put together".Do you know your unique beauty or do you feel like you can't be beautiful because you don't look like a movie star? Amaterasu says that all woman possess the light of the feminine and the light is beauty. She advises to let go of preconceptions about what beauty is and allow your beauty to be. Wholeness is nurtured when we celebrate all our aspects. Embrace who you are, you are beautiful! you are amazing!
When you shine your light, you also allow others to shine theirs...

This is a picture of my mom and I, back in October 2017 in New York. Been able to give my mom and being with her at this experience was one of the things that if you ever even told me that I would be able to do it, the whole process by myself, a couple years before, nowhere in a million years I would have believed what you were telling me. We had such an amazing and boding time that up to these days I am extremely grateful for.
Honestly, for you may be nothing and I understand, but do you have one of these type-like dreams in the back of your mind? Things that you think you will never be able to do it? I understand I was there one time too. It seemed so far ahead of me that some days it would feel like a fairy tale aka, things that only happened in Hollywood setup sets. That year and after, I was and I am still able to manifest many things into my life and I must tell you they keep coming and coming…ah gratitude, you so have me!
Now, you may ask, how did she do it? I didn’t! I am still actually doing it, this was just one of the dreams I had, I have many others, which I keep work (on myself) towards, so you may ask, what means “work on myself” means?
It means that I had to do work in anything and everything that got in the way of archiving many of those dreams, but until I realize that most of those obstacles were my limit beliefs, awareness of who I was, why I am here and that I am much more than I ever realized and many other commas in between, I was unable to bring them forward and keep bring forward. yes! it was painful sometimes, yes! I had the help and support of a lot of people around me and I STILL have and NO! don’t think you can’t do it, because If I did it, you can TOTALLY DO TOO!!
Sometimes, we get stuck and that’s ok to ask for help and look for support, I still do that, remember I am human, and I have no shame to be so, thank the feelings and emotions. Yes! I still do work on myself!
We ALL need the help to BLOOM and I am here to SUPPORT YOU into your journey as well.
Check my 1:1 Coaching Program: http://www.lizbarbosahealings.com/bloom-coaching-program.html
I also want to say that no, I didn’t write this post just to try to pitch you my program. Honestly, I cheer to you to go with whoever you FEEL REALLY drawn to because trust me, that person will be the person who has one of the biggest lessons that you may have to go through to move to next step and give you direction and clarity to the correct way.
I wish also for you to bring into YOUR reality all those dreams!
GO YOU, GO YOU!!
This past weekend I went to home depot and had so much fun! Yep! You read it right, home depot!
As I was looking to buy fresh flowers and plants aka orchids, I met a lady who was working in the garden department, she was able to share with me about how to take care of orchids, how to keep them longer, how to recognize when they are healthy and so on, it was a mini basic about orchid class. She also showed me how to recognize when a plant will be able to root into the water so you can make more from it.
I would say that Marylee was a retired orchid/plant expert who was “working” there “just to get out of the house”. She also showed me how it looks when you are in your core and spreading yourself with love, her energy was so peaceful, calm and loving, I would have stayed there all day listening to her talking about plants. She also shared with me that she has about 40 orchids at her house.
My home depot experience wasn’t done…by the time I got to the cashier, my plant was not only paid for but packaged and good to go as someone who was with me not only paid for but had me on track in leaving the store, yes, I did kind of daydream while there, it was a really good experience! When you have fun things just doesn’t really matter around you.
I was able to have an amazing experience at Home Depot by learning, connecting and getting a lovely gift just by being in the present moment.
When you vibrate love, excitement, and self-love, the Universe responds back to you accordingly.
Celebrate you and be open to receive!
Once, a very close friend of mine described me as a bubbling glass of champagne. I was like, what? Are you trying to say I like to party? Honestly? I need more details on this, what do you mean by saying this? I responded.
She said, yeah, you have this freshness and way of celebrating things that are so unique to you, it’s contagious.
I got sad and happy at the same time because I could feel it and completely understand exactly what she was referring to, but I also knew that I wasn’t living by it. I knew, in the bottom of my heart, that everything I was pushing down emotionally, physically and spiritually, so I could deal with it later, was also pushing me away from my dreams and the life I always have fantasied about.
This morning I woke up with this exact conversation in my head and one of my guides asked me, so what have you been celebrating lately? The cup has been empty waiting to be full of you, who you are, of your happiness, excitement, and celebration of little things. I was wow! I must find my essence again (it’s here, I just haven’t given much attention to it lately), the joy of doing things again and they responded back, it has been here all along, turn the switch on.
For this reason, I declared this month of February the “Celebrating you” month. What have you been doing to celebrate you every single day? Do you celebrate choosing you, when you making decisions? Do you celebrate when you put yourself first? How do you make your life full of celebrations?
Come with me find the joy that belongs to who you truly are,
Happy February 2019th!!
2018 was a BIG year for me, a year of growth, love, excitement, winnings, a-ha moments and depth, a year that I was conscious and for the most part, in peace, even though I also went through some painful truth, a year that I embrace one more piece of me: my inner child, a year that I was able to say THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING I lived,
How a lost over 50 pounds
