Intuitive Healing

Confusion turned to clarity
Finally, I stopped blaming me
There’s duality to everything once I stopped playing victim
And looked at both ends of the spectrum
I can’t really say that I found beauty in this tragedy
All I can do is heal and remember to breathe

To my partner, thank you
for being my strength when I felt weak
blessed to have you by my side the whole way through


The signs were so similar; cramping, lower back pain, and bloating. I was just waiting for my cycle to come.  I  would constantly check my period app and thought,“I’m not that late.”  There were so many occurrences happening at once. I was working my 9-5, teaching my Mat Pilates class, studying for another certification, and training my client.  I was so oblivious to the thought of being pregnant. Then I started craving meat! I wanted jerk chicken, curry goat, and shrimp – fried shrimp, jerk shrimp, shrimp scampi – I wanted everything that was out of my diet! I was no longer fitting into my bras (which by the way I enjoyed very much) and blamed my water system for making me feel nauseous. I never thought, or maybe, I didn’t want to believe that there was a possibility that I could be pregnant.

One day during my lunch break, I decided to take a pregnancy test. I live walking distance from my job and conveniently near a pharmacy. I went home and followed the directions that came with the test accordingly. Those 30 seconds felt like eternity! Then, what looked like magic, appeared two lines on the stick. I cried. I cried because I was scared AF! A baby?! How?! I mean we all know how, but throughout my entire relationship we have always been so careful. I guess I should take out that “so”.

20180202_133154.jpgWhy did this happen now during this very moment where I would be making a huge transformation in my life? The thought of having a baby was no where near my radar. There was not one ounce of baby fever floating inside of me. One minute I thought my career was over and the next I thought how my little bundle of joy would be my motivation to work even harder. Literally those thoughts enter my mind and left once I realized I had 10 minutes to get back to work.

I went to the doctor a couple of days after finding out about my shocking news.  I think deep down inside I needed extra confirmation and I was a bit concern about the cramping and spotting I have been experiencing. The doctor gave me a sonogram and a heart beat was there. I was able to see this white colored peanut shape on the black screen. Being present in the moment, I smiled and placed my hand over my stomach. I couldn’t stop looking at my confirmation on the screen. There was actually something growing inside of me! They also checked my hCG levels and told me I had to retest my levels two days after. I did just that. On that day, however, clouds hovered over me. My levels were not only lower than where it should be at 9 weeks but were also dropping instead of doubling up. I retested two more times and was diagnosed with threatened miscarriage or threatened abortion. I immediately started to blame myself and believed that my thoughts about not being ready for this pregnancy caused us to go through this unfortunate situation.  It felt like each day I was losing more of my pregnancy symptoms. All I wanted was for my symptoms to stay. I was put on pelvic bed rest and did my best to take it easy… but it wasn’t enough.

I remember the day being very cloudy. Snow started falling while I was making my way back home. Everything around me sounded as if I was under water; mumbles I guess. I felt empty. I was tired. I was hungry. I was upset. I was sad. I was numbed. I went straight into the shower as soon as I entered my apartment. I took off my clothes, turned on the water and stepped into the tub.  I grabbed my soap and began to wash my body.  Once I reached my stomach, it felt like I stopped breathing. I think I almost did. It felt like my chest was shriveling up like a raisin. “Breathe. Please Breathe.”  There was nothing there. There was nothing inside of my tummy anymore.  I made it to 11 weeks and 3 days.

The doctors pointed out that I had a few fibroids inside and around my uterus. Again, I started to blame myself. “had I just changed my diet sooner.”, “I should’ve taken the test sooner, I could have avoided all the internal stresses.”, “if I knew sooner I could have started prenatal care earlier.” and many more mental punches.

But time allowed me to heal.

I feel better and I’m on a mission to shrink these fibroids holistically. I’m not sure what caused me to have these complications. I do know that I want to create a healthier environment for my next pregnancy. I want to be well within. And I will be. They say things happen for a reason and I’m pretty sure I know my reasons for this experience.

To all the women who have experienced a pregnancy loss, I send you love and positive vibes. To all the men who were by their woman’s side, you are very much appreciated.

Know Thyself

Know Thyself (2)“The Body is the temple of God within you; therefore it is said, ‘Man: Know Thyself’.” – Egyptian Proverbs

Do you truly know yourself?  Do you truly understand who you are on the inside?  I’m not talking about knowing your favorite color, foods, places to go, etc…  I mean, do you have a deep understanding of your inner-self and knowledge of the presence of your soul?  When one truly knows oneself, I believe it is nearly impossible for anyone to persuade them to do things that contradict who they are.  When you truly understand yourself, you will accept yourself and all of your perfect imperfections.  You will respect and love yourself fully and, in turn, you will understand, accept, respect, and love God.  You will also know God on a deeper level, understanding that just as God is all around you, God is also very much within you.

If you haven’t thought about the aphorism, “Know Thyself”, don’t worry.  Join me by setting aside at least five minutes a day to meditate, pray, chant or be still (whichever works for you). Catch your breath and let go of all stress and anxiety.  Release all of the clutter in your mind and begin to listen to the language of the Universe.  It will take patience and lots of practice.  However, I am positive you will benefit tremendously from it.

If you decide to do this, keep me posted on your journey towards self-awareness and true self-love.  I would love to know how you’re progressing!

With Love,


It’s your life: Really live it!

That is exactly what I tend to do.

Hello beautiful souls!  I finally found the courage to start my blog!  For over two years, all I dreamed of was sharing my thoughts and likes with the world. I always felt like I was not ready or was not good enough to blog – just two out of many excuses I used to create.  For starters, I am not a good writer but I love to write. Wait… there I go again, using negative language.  I’m going to try that again: I love to write and believe in myself and found the courage to just start sharing!

One thing that I have recognized was that I am my own worst enemy. I was the only person who did not allow my creative juices to flow and flourish. The question I had to ask myself was, “How long am I going to just dream about this and when will I actually start putting in the effort to live the life I want to live?”

Well, I finally decided to stop dreaming and start doing and so my journey in the world of blogging begins!

My goal is to motivate and encourage individuals to enjoy life, exude confidence, and live an overall healthy lifestyle all at the same time.  I want to create a platform where I can share all of my interests and perspectives on life with you. I hope that, through this blog, I can help individuals like myself – people who allow their anxiety and inhibitions to take over and spend enormous amounts of time over-thinking everything.  Let us break these barriers together and live the life we always wanted to live.  I’m remembering to put God first, take my health seriously and live my life to the fullest. There is no way I’m turning back now and you shouldn’t either.  Now let the journey begin!

With love,
