So with some of the cool things happening in my life, watching my brother’s journey is definitely an inspiration for me. #whatatimetobealive
For those who aren’t acquainted with the Philippine scene, my brother came from the nightlife and entertainment background; DJing, opening clubs, streetwear stores, media and the like. After a few years in that scene, he recently transitioned to become a Life Coach.
I could tell you more about his journey in later posts, but for now, I wanted to post this video by Marissa Peer. During a recent chat session with Jon, I opened up about certain feelings of limitation and block (also related to my last post) that I have been experiencing.
You know that feeling when you feel things moving in a great, higher direction in your life and you just feel… uncomfortable? Like everything is amazing and your dreams are coming true left and right, but at the back of your mind you slightly hold back. You don’t give it your all because fear starts sinking in… You wonder if this whole momentum is a fluke, and eventually you’ll f*ck up all the good things and people will call you out. So yeah, I felt that.
Jon sent me this video above to remind me pause and check myself before I wreck myself. It’s packed with pretty powerful a-ha! moments that I keep replaying over and over again. The truth is, sometimes people become uncomfortable with all the good stuff happening to them because it brings up issues of worthiness. We often feel like we don’t deserve it, but as Marissa says, “You are enough.”
Now we know loves. Now we know. If this video helped you, I encourage you to post it forward.
You know who your great girlfriends are when they buy you books and say, “I hope this book will guide you towards many more miracles to come.” A really amazing friend gave this book, “A Year of Miracles” by Marianne Williamson during my recent birthday. I met her here in Hong Kong when I moved last year, and although it’s only been a “short” friendship from a linear point of view, I do feel that in this case, time deems irrelevant and we speak like we’ve known each other forever.
I don’t read this book linearly either. I often times just open it to a random page to see what the message is for me on that particular day. Tonight landed on Day 155, and read “Limitations do not stand before the limitlessness of God, and it is the limits to our faith, not the limits of our circumstances, that keep us from experiencing miracles.”
To continue, “Every situation provides us the chance to live with broader, more audacious hope and faith that all things are possible. God is bigger than any limited circumstance in our past; God is bigger than any limitation that the world is showing us now. Limitations exist only as a challenge to us to mature spiritually, as we realise that through the grace of God we are bigger than they are.”
I’ve been going through some synchronistic experiences that keep reminding me to take everything to the next level. In hindsight, sometimes we see that the only thing blocking us is ourselves. Time to let go of limitations and unlock the next level xxx
So I’ve pretty much put Jada on Goddess level since I watched Magic Mike XXL. (Yup. How inspiring.) She had such dope energy that the next day I jumped on YouTube and began checking out all her interviews to see how that brain worked.
This particular video caught my attention, and I have kept telling myself, my sisters, my mom, and all my other girlfriends out there who do a lot to take care of the kids, chase their career, and make their honeys happy. Putting that energy back into yourself, to nourish yourself, is so integral when no matter what role you play in life.
What? When did this drop and where was I??? As I was casually streaming through Spotify’s hip-hop radio this morning, this started blasting. I checked to see the artist because I loved how the beat started and freaked when I found out it was Eminem and Kendrick.
I. didn’t. see. this. coming.
Sometimes just because a song didn’t hit mass appeal doesn’t mean its not a good song. I’m gonna keep my ear to the ground more often…
This is something we’ve been working on for the past few months that I’m happy to see finally come into fruition- the website of non-profit school Mano Amiga is up and running… :)
I haven’t had much time to update my blog recently as I’ve been on the move. But this is something that I wanted to share for the longest time…
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing yoga guru, author, and speaker Mark Whitwell at the recent Asia Yoga Conference in Hong Kong. It was my first assignment for Yogi Times, and I learned so much during the process of researching and writing this piece.
While I haven’t focused on writing for media as much as I used to (I’ve become more involved in my own business and catering to clients the past couple of months), I do love the fact that I can easily jump back into the craft when I am inspired.
I also feel like every time I am assigned to write something, it’s pretty relevant to what I’m supposed to learn in that phase of my life. This article pushed me to learn more about yoga, working from the heart, and connecting with myself and others. It gets pretty deep, but I hope you guys like it xxx

Another year goes by, and the Global Mala Project grows bigger and bigger in Manila. People always ask me if there’s a yoga community in the Philippines, and this event is something I tell them to check out.
This year’s event is lined up for September 26, 2015 at Whitespace. It’s going to be a full day of amazing yoga sessions and talks. I was so thrilled to see this come together last year and am really looking forward to being home for this. <3
Tickets go on sale Aug 26. (P650 pesos for early bird rate, P750 pesos for regular tickets). 100% of the proceeds will go to this year’s beneficiary, Children’s International.
