Confront the Crap

Sometimes what we need to be able to let go of the past and what no longer serves us is to accept defeat, to accept that something didn't work out for some crappy reason that's why it had to go, to state how crappy some things actually were. Sometimes staying in the "harnessing the good …

Burn Brighter

You are the flame and the candle is your world. Allow Spirit to burn your life as you've known it. Surrender to the transformation that's coming through you. All that you'll ever need to begin again is within you. The energies that make up fire cannot be destroyed. What remains true will not turn to …

Breakthroughs

You'll know you're approaching a breakthrough when external circumstances seem to be pulling you back...and you notice them, and they happen more often. When people drag you to stay in ways you've already outgrown, stuck in your old habits and attitudes. When you're put into situations that require you to make a choice and solidify …

Unfolding

When it feels like things are falling apart, here's my only advice: Take care of yourself as you allow things to unfold.  In situations like this, you are most probably confused - you don't know what's going on - and you are less likely to make empowered, self-aware choices.

Let yourself go

It's time to let go. Let the waves go. Let the sand take the shape of the wind. Let the thunder roll. Let the ice break underneath your feet. Let the sun rise and fall. Nothing is permanent, yet everything is unbreakable. It's time to let go. Let yourself go. Allow yourself to take the …

Forgive

The Resurrection, the longing for

I state my claim I scratch the surface, I go deep I scrape the bottom, I'm insatiable. I crave for fragments I feed on chunks, I turn it inside-out. Nothing's left but I want more, I lick the ashes of what once was the core. daena de guzman | 2017

Clearing our Space

Angels have been "nagging" me to organize my stuff these past few weeks as an important part of my journey. I didn't understand what the fuss was about and I didn't think it was that imperative. My room wasn't in bad shape and I was sure I didn't have that much to organize. Then today …

Cheers to an Open Secret

When somebody gets credit for something exceptional, we're all wowed and we couldn't believe how they could achieve something so well despite their apparent humanity. What we don't see are the innumerable hours they've spent practicing - and failing. Failing hard. Failing and taking the real blows. The rest of us only witness the glorious …
