For Carnival / Mardi Gras a serious note: we want to work with you if you are authentic; not if you come carrying hidden agendas or fantasies. If you wear a mask so thick that we can’t dechiper your real intentions from what you say and do, that typically gives away that you don’t really […]

Several years ago I (Daniele) was an angry teenager who was seeing everything black and had no hope. The reason was I had been given the feeling to be a burden to my parents while I was growing up. Behind honorable excuses such as “I do not want to cause pain” or “The world is […]

Every human being must have aspirations to something more elevated than his or her physical desires. Deep down you know what you really need and what you want or got used to having because it’s normal nowadays – and yet still superflous. Something that feels right are experiences, especially if shared with the people we […]

How do you fight your daemons? Your fears? How do you turn around days that start with feeling horrible, un-motivated, ready to give up? What do you do to give yourself strength? The sky might be gray but you know those dark clouds will clear up eventually. An obstacle might have arisen but you know […]

Loving is not an option. It is a necessity.

Loving is not an option. It is a necessity.

January 9, 2018

Filed under: Art, Quotes

Love is needed: our soul needs it and, without it, our body gets sick. Yet a lot of people have been so badly hurt in the past (childhood, past traumatic experiences, past relationships) that keep their gates to love shut and they are afraid of sentimental entanglement. They are afraid to receive and they stop […]

We wish you to find the Divine Strength that lies within you, this Christmas: open your heart to compassion but also hold to a vision that is uncompromising.

Beware: this expression – like many other ones – gets abused a lot. Getting out of your comfort zone does not mean pushing your limits at work or in any other competitive context; it might instead mean following your heart even if what it tells you defies logic and even if sounds ‘crazy’ to those […]

A lot of the “reasons” people state when justifying their break-ups are bullshit. “Love eventually dies” is bullshit. Love is like a fire: you have to tend it. Make it grow or make it slow down at times. Make it ‘stable’ enough for cooking. Keep throwing wood at it to keep it going. Yes, when […]

This Full Moon is the Final for this calendar year. It might feel like putting into practice what you’ve been preaching since this summer; walk your talk. Mercury Retrograde might make it more challenging than usual to communicate – or is it just because it’s the end of the year and you are very very […]

What do you do to get grounded?

November 7, 2017

For plants, being ‘grounded’ is their natural condition: half of their ‘bodies’ (their root system) is at all times buried into mother earth and it tends to be as big – or bigger – than the part of the plant we see above ground. For humans, it’s not that clear that we also need to […]

If something bad happened to you in the past, stop crying for it over and over again. Stop seeing yourself as a victim. Don’t dwell in those past moments: see how that behavior is keeping you blocked from moving forward and how that is not helping you. The past has had its teachings, all the […]
