People ask me all the time what is Ayurveda? ⠀
If you translate the word Ayurvad from the Sanskrit language, it means the knowledge of life - Ayur means life and veda means knowledge.⠀
in my own words, I like to say that Ayurveda is your personal manual of how your body, according to your very own personal constitutions, works! to reach optimal health and a peaceful mind⠀
Also, I would say, you may have heard that everything in the Universe is energy, including your body, containing all the 5 elements or the combination or two or more in their personal makeup, such as the food you eat, the weather, the activities you have along the day and anything you may think of in how you feed yourself throught one of the senses( organs of the 5 senses - mouth, ear, nose, touch, eyes)⠀
For example, if in your manual says you have an inclination for dry skin, constipation, insomnia and anxiety, these are indications that you may need to increase the intake of oily in your life, or nourish and nurture yourself, either by eating more fat, taking a warm bath, drinking more water or getting a whole body massage with oil. That's is Ayurveda! checking where YOU may need support and supporting you to reduce the possible imbalances in your body and of course remembering that you are a unique and amazing being!⠀
Time is part of living...
There is time of dying, like the leaves of the fall, where nature is letting go of the old to take a seasonal "break", to create space, to give space to the beauty of winter and bring the new in the following season of spring
There is time to take a step back when things may be too hard in our eyes, when in reality we have been asked to go with the flow, even thou this flow may be rash, painful and destructive...
There is time to plant, time to water, time to harvest and time to rest...
There is time to wake up, time to eat, time to move, time to rest, time to self-care, time to give, time to receive...
There is also time when you love, you are loved or you are just in present moment, allowing both to beautifully work through your divine being
The reality is, not one of us will be looking into the time to do any of these things above, the time naturally make it happen, we just must follow it, we want or not, time will pass, there is no way of "holding the time", even when you decide that you may be waiting for something to happen, the time will pass, the winkles will catch to us, the seasons will pass, the leaves will fall...
No matter what you decide to do with your time, have you ask yourself what is the result of your next moment going forward?
Are you giving time to shed and let your leaves to fall, taking a break, be amazed by the magic of the snow falling, then eventually let everything melt to create space to a beautiful, nourishing and fascinating season to come?
Take the time to have a gift at your hands at every second of your time, of your day, of your life, of your being...
Allow yourself to die and live. Be the beauty of the time...

I posted this yesterday in social media:
Had some magical time today with an amazing person!!#lonetime When you take time to recharge and restore, accordingly to Ayurveda, anything “hard” that may show up along the way, will be welcomed with the smoothness and easiness of your mind.
A little story. As I walked along the shore line, receiving all the support and loving for all my senses, my vision, through the beautiful scenery, my hearing through the relaxing sound of the waves, touch, as the sand massaged the sole of my foot, my heart was just so open and in sync with source, I looked down and a little fish was fighting for his life, as the waves had pushed him out to the sand.
I carefully carried him back to the water, where he happily found his way back into being who he was made to be: a fish!
But what would he be without the water? And the water was right there, literally just one swimming away, except that he can’t swim on the sand.
It made me think what would we be without EVERYTHING that God offers to us, every single day, so all we must do is to be what we came here to do?
In instead we insist in stay on the sand, trying so hard to swim, not accomplishing what most of us want: happiness
However, as we relax and allow the Universe to guide us, which may come in several ways, we can be a vessel of what we really are here to be: light!
Then, today it got me think about something else...
It makes me believe that our "JOB" is not to be a label, such as an accounting, a doctor or an attorney. yes, You can perform all of those if it's in your purpose, but it certainly won't define who you are, you are not a doctor, you may be a healer performing your duty as a doctor.
Another day I had a 7 years old asking me what was my job, I said I am a healer! and she was puzzled by it because it didn't make sense to her, so I said, are you asking how I make money? I have my own business, I get paid to be myself! Interesting enough, it makes me think how most of us, thinks that money only comes thought a job, or working for someone, or selling something and so on. There are SO many channels to have money coming to you that it still blow my minds sometimes! Money IS just an energy as everything else! now, the beliefs you may have around money may be in the way of helping you see such thing.
Regards of being me...when you are yourself, do things from the heart and connect to God just by asking the creator in a daily basis, God, what do you want me to do today? you just have to listen, because sometimes all he will be asking you, is to save a fish from his own inability to see the amazing and incredible being he is when he is in the water! is that hard?
We are all powerful creators and beings...just choose to be on the side where the light shines bright by helping others to see their own light.
This is me, back in November 2004. The picture was taken in Chicago when I went there to visit a guy I was “dating online”. The trip happening in a middle of people telling me I was crazy for going there to meet this guy and putting my life in danger and others telling me I had no idea what I was doing… what if he was a serial killer?
I did it anyways…
Not discounting the fact that there are crazy people, such as serial killers out there, but how many times I had to do something because I really wanted to do in instead of letting the fear take over myself and decided that “living in fear” was the only option?
Raise your hands how many times you didn’t do something because you were afraid of or what if’s?
Anyways, the “guy and I” didn’t hit off and this turned out to be one of the trips I had being on my own. I walked all over, by myself and visited a couple of different places there, three days later I got inside a plane and got back home. Safe and sound…
I have noticed that as many things in my life I have to choose to “take a chance”, some of those chances has dramatically changed my life, others it has been lessons I have collected and refer to when needed. The Chicago trip one is one of those ones I refer to or tell the story of the “guy from Chicago I met over Thanksgiving holiday”
At least, I was able to make memories…
To be honest, back then, I had no idea of what I was doing, my intention was to travel somewhere, but I was too afraid to go without knowing someone. So, going online and meeting someone would make me feel more comfortable, however the Universe even showed me that I didn’t “need someone”.
The difference between Liz then and Liz now? After working in myself and have healed many layers of who I was and have done many things the way I did, I have realized that I don’t need to know someone to be a secure spot to go somewhere or to take care of me, I am free to go anywhere my heart leads me to, I am independent and have enough will power to make my very own decisions based in unconditional love, for myself and others!
That’s the key! Your heart! Checking wiht your heart why you are going, where you are going ad how it feels, makes you decide if it is the step that will serve your soul.
How do you do that? You cnnect to your heart and your soul in a daily basis!! This is one of the tools I teach my VIP clients. This is one of the most valuable tools to have for life because once you recognize the reason behind why you are doing something, it gives full awareness of where you want to take your life!
Doesn’t it sound amazing? No, it doesn’t, it’s amazing!!

Stillness is just as important as movement... yoga teaches the balance between both, however no books or planning practice will tell us how much is needed. It’s available to all of us anytime we choose to do either one but the frequency of when or how much, is established individually...
Last week I was on a train role of doing, doing and doing and as I tried to push a little further, my guides warned me to step back because I needed to recalibrate myself, after an intense healing and release I got days prior. I first felt an emotional uneasiness, then my stomach, then my shoulder started to hurt, I didn’t listen, well my ego got in the way🙄#imhumantoo , by the time I pulled some emergency Ayurveda tools, it was time to really stop, then yesterday night I got a sore throat and some hearing issues...oh well, I guess I wasn’t listening...on top of all the heart releasing from last week...
Anyways, we all go through this process of getting messages and not following, then we are forced to do so when we can no longer take...we are physically stopped...
Now, have you been able to listen to your bodies messages?
You may ask how? Using your senses and the relationship you have to the environment. I have learned this through Ayurveda ❤️❤️❤️
How do you do?🥳💯🥰🙏

I remember, years ago, my old self making such comment: "What does Taylor Swift has that she is so famous?"Looking back, maybe her confidence or something I was mirroring triggered me, I am not sure...
Two days ago, while doing cardio on the elliptical, I turned the TV to a documentary about Taylor Swift's career and life. I must confess that I was touched to learn about her journey in dealing with her public and being famous, and her journey of discovering her mission and stepping into her power, especially the "Kayne West situations - his comment and the song he made involving her name". Since becoming aware of my own spiritual journey, I have started to respect many people out there, including her, in a different level, however, watching this documentary also has showed me a side of someone I never followed on the news, listening to her songs or has been someone who I knew anything about her music, other than know her name and face, which I am can be pretty bad at...I realized that, like me, SHE is also HUMAN...
but I also learned that:
1 - We all deserve respect!
2 - Not everyone will like you for your gifts, and that's ok, this won't make you more or less. Even Jesus, who was perfect! had people who didn't agree with who he was or his mission!
3 - We ALL have our struggles and lessons we have to go through
4 - A lot of money does not end people's problems, they have different lessons
5 - She is talented, I was the one who never learned about who she was
6 - Never judge someone by just seeing them once or twice, without knowing their story or path - even if you do know, don't judge!
7 - Always give compassion!!
there are many other lessons to be learned here...what do you think, have you ever had someone you didn't like then you realized that it was you, not the other person? Let's face, Taylor Swift doesn't even know I exist lol
I just got back from Walmart and if you are an empath, going to Walmart is like going to war, unless otherwise you ground and protect yourself, or you WILL feel drained leaving there, most likely you may need a nap after.
As soon i got into the cart area an older man seemed upset because I accidentally got in front of him, as i was going into the store and he crossed the path i was going, to get himself a cart, he looked very upset!!! I calmly waited for him to cross and wished him a nice day, imagining i was sending him green light from my heart. My shopping experience went well, i had tons of people smiling to me and "letting me cross over their paths <3" as they gently nodded their heads...
i had no lines and no issues with the self-checkout #winwin
I could have chosen to get mad at the old man, who maybe was having a not so good day, or going through an issue I am not aware of, however, I was aware of the fact that, the reason why he reacted the way he did, had nothing to do with me, NOTHING... big chances are he has done this to someone else there...
Also, we always give ONLY what we have to give, you can't give from an empty bag. If you have love, respect, compassion, a bag of smiles inside yourself, make sure to distribute it, you certainly will affect somewhere out there differently. Also choose make your experience your own, the way YOU want, and not based in situations and cirscunstances.
I choose to give this man some love... maybe that was all he needed today...
What are YOU giving today?
Also, who here feels drained when goes to Walmart?

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…
