Experiencing God’s Blessing 2016

Screen shot 2016-01-09 at 11.59.02 AM.png

 

And ta-da! Here’s my theme for 2016!

Usually, I would write a series of what my year will be…. but having gone through a lot of things last year and how uncertain life can be…

This year, I want to make it simple.

I just want to experience God’s Blessing.

That’s it.

In every way, I just want to experience HIS miracles. I want to recognize them. So, this year, I’m dropping all my plans… and I will just TRUST and SURRENDER to what GOD has in store for me.

So, Lord…. I let go of my need to control… I am consciously allowing YOU to happen to me!

Love and Magical Kisses from one of your earth angels slash mermaid,

WILD & Awesome 2013

and indeed it was a W.I.L.D… one *insert song Wild One ft. Sia*

in case one needs a refresher… I coined WILD as “wonderfully, interesting, love filled days” and indeed my 2013 was filled with that!
Wonderfully interesting by pushing our Liwanag World Festival last February 2013 and by late July, early August my love filled days started and it’s been brewin ever since up to now…. and my heart is desiring for a forever here. [insert song: First Day of Forever] *may the love angels guide us* Yes, there’s something sweet in that desire. Right, boo?

Everyone I know was going through a whole lot of ups & downs. In fact, this year is one tough year for everyone. It was a year of “losses” – be it personally, financially, emotionally, physically…….. I lost a good close friend of mine… Yan2x…. but I know he will always be remembered in my heart. And a lot of my good friends and loved ones lost someone who are close to their hearts too. Also the calamities that devastated parts of our country was equally depressing. However, let this all be not for naught but always cherish and remember our loved ones. Remember our good times with them…because they are never gone… they will always live in our hearts. Meantime, may it teach us to be more present with one another and to always give our all…. When it comes to relationships. Take chances that are there for the taking because we never know what would happen next…… and say the words you would want your loved ones to hear….. because today can be the last day or the first day of your life….. The year was filled with expose as well as the spotlight shifts to our corrupt government officials. *insert explicit words here* It was in fact a year of drama or turmoil if you choose to suffer that long, but at the bright side of everything … is that sometimes… some things needs to fall apart so we can choose the pieces we want to stay in our life…..

This year, I had to go through bouts of confusion in matters of career, because I was confused with all the opportunities unfolding to the point of “I don’t want to move” or “I don’t know what to do”. But, I did try new ventures and found out it was more of an added skill to what I can do one day to support me for a larger purpose which is to be of service to the Filipinos and ultimately the humankind. By spreading LOVE and in more tangible terms… giving each one sustainable support and empowering them to go find their own path.  I even thought of moving out from home… but felt it wasn’t the right time. Yet.

To everyone who braved the year 2013… I congratulate you! Two more challenging years up ahead and we are well on our way to adjusting to the thinning veil of materialism and externals versus valuing what truly matters most to each and every one of us. And that is: what we feel beyond the physical… love, relationships, & spirituality. Just hold on to what matters most and all will not be lost. J Make sure you pick up the worthy ones! Pass up good, wait for great! If you found yourself something great…. Hold onto that and fight for your true heart’s desires….. they don’t usually come around for a second time! 🙂

This year, I’ve experienced various individuals who tested my patience. More like, I’ve encountered people I would rather not deal with in matters of business affairs and personal encounters. Also, betrayal of trust was one issue I tackled, however God always spares me and keeps me from harm while at the same time able to teach me a lesson. I also encountered my bitchy self twice this year. And I know, I ought to trust my intuition more. And now, I know when to stay or leave without prolonging the agony. Ive also learned how to forgive myself for making stoopid mistakes now and then. *face palm*

But then, it was good that on February, I did a spring cleaning of my heart….. Forgiving and letting go of past hurts and angers…. In order to bring in love again… and he arrived on an August day… like a gentle koala with his eucalyptus… and he was just right before my eyes pala… I just have to open my eyes…. [insert song: open your eyes to love]

This year was also wedding-filled!! 7 weddings! But only managed to join the 5 weddings. My closet is filled with dresses na! I was secondary sponsor on 2 weddings, one I was the candle, and another towel. To all the newly married couples for the year 2013… I wish you all the best and may you inspire more people to love and cherish their chosen ones!  and mind you, they were all couples and partnerships that I admire because each has their own spark and uniqueness and they inspire me.

[shout outs to: Rey & Karyl (Urdaneta) – you are a young couple, however I see the love and commitment that is rare sa age nyo… it inspires me!, Kuya Noli & Ate Tere (Batangas) – ive seen you together 4 years ago and we thought you were just friends! Mag boyfriend pala eh!!, Kuya Jaime & Ate Beth (Tagum – may 26) – huwaaa your goal while you were under me Ate Beth was to plan your wedding… you have no idea how your partnership and devotion to Kuya Jaime inspires me.  Meynard & Fran(june 8) – when I heard your love story… I was deeply touched and moved. Kuya Eli and Ate Precious(july 20) – your story is similar to mine.. so that’s why I understood what you guys had to go through… and look at you all pregnant and happy already! Bords &Regine – you are a cute couple! best wishes!!  Cris and Ate Jill – Huwaaaaa!! You’ve seen me both in my brokenness and happiness…. And it is with your partnership that inspires me to also not give up and to keep opening my eyes….]

Despite everything in 2013, I am super grateful for one gift God gave me. 🙂 He is a gift because; I love who I am becoming because of him. And I know it to be true. I know he wouldn’t like it if I mention his name here…. But you know who you are sweetheart! To us, the challenge is… the gift of patience, anticipation, and building the foundation to a lasting worthy partnership…. I don’t know where it will take us… but I’ll be holding you in my heart as you will hold me in yours…. It won’t be hearts and flowers or rosy all the time…. But always remember, if there’s a fall out…. that won’t change my love and respect to you. Kisses  hugstight

This year, I choose to keep my desires and visions alive… in my heart.. and manifest them…

I choose to love & respect myself more…. and live my life with authenticity.

I choose to see wonders with my Being and my Life.

I choose to raise my capacity to love to the fullest!

I choose to reap millions and more…. *wink wink*

I choose to create and open doors for opportunities of the many possibilities to what I want to do… and step into it….. [ yes, sustainability of cashflow is here too! ]

there’s no room for hesitations…. because This year, is an adventure!

This year, I choose to believe in the power of love and even more so to give the love around and overflow.

I choose to value my freedom to Live and to Love.

This year is full of celebration…… *dances*

This year is full of spontaneous, fun-loving, carefree, moments.

I choose to surround myself with like-minded people. Meeting more people with the same vision and mission in life. I choose to meet more people I admire in transforming our world.

I choose to consciously clear, clean the land and atmosphere whenever I step in, consciously being the Light.

I choose to be a more passionate, fun-loving, beautiful, wise, Maria. [ I am Maria re-frame]

I choose to paint my world with various colors and make a splash, and leave bold strokes wherever I go. Yes, I am Rainbow! 🙂

I choose to always always remember the child within, in enjoying the innocence, embracing pure bliss with no questions, to love whole-ly and to laugh at the littlest things in life.

I choose to have more spaces of me-time, of solitude and serene moments to catch up with my soul.. and Spirit… where I am, what I am Be-ing…. to drink in Life… in it’s most calming way…

I choose to learn new recipes to relish *crosses fingers*, never run out of questions to ask, experiences to savor, and new people to meet! 🙂

I choose to believe in the power of travel and dora-dora-ish days, of learning beyond what the books and other people dictate but by experiencing first hand what Life has to offer!

This year, I choose to have more love… laughter… and yes, please… more magical kisses.

Indeed it’s gonna be a WILD one!

birthing a new era

we are still here. alive and kickin`! not, that i was expecting something as large as an ice age or meteor falling or aliens beaming us up to godknowswhere.

I guess the lightworkers did their job well! *cheers* There were simultaneous global meditation happening at 11:11 GMT and other events creat

ing good vibes… and well.. wadaaaaa. keep the good vibes steady, everyone! We need that in this new era/dimension. 🙂

that was one gentle re-birth. mmmmm… but… the birthing is still going on! at least, the purification stage is way past it.. and we are ready to welcome the Light. Truth. Love. Cooperation. Kindness. Joy. Peace. Creativity. Abundance.

Of course, there will be battles as the old struggles to hang on, but then… love and light will totally melt them away.. or transmute them.

Yesterday, we celebrated it… in our community. We invited different people of different religious backgrounds and beliefs, advocacies, culture… and all from different fields too.

It was fun.

There were singing, dancing, laughing and some cryin`….

tumblr_lwlbhz40wz1qbmqg2o1_500

A select few gave out their vision…. for the coming generations. I was one of them. I gave out my vision for the youth. 🙂 There were visions for government, business, education, environment, natural farming, music & arts, spirituality, peace, and the mindanao agenda….

we also placed our wishes… on a wishing tree for our families and the world….

we also gave gifts and greeted each other Happy Birthday! (yeah, that may seem weird.. but we are just doing what we know best… to transcend and include… for the coming cycle…. another 5,126 years again? wooohoo!)

I am just blessed to be born at such a time as this…. i guess in a way,… my soul waited for this event.

exciting days ahead!!! 🙂

btw, check out my guest post on Denoy’s blog: Friends

Enchanting 2012

It’s the time of the year to state my intentions for the most-awaited year of the century! 2012.

I chose enchanting because it’s the year of the dragon… which I have adopted as my year… but, I just found out I am rabbit (technically). However, I am a mix of the two! Haha.

So here goes:

THIS YEAR:

I choose to be enchanted by life.

I choose to walk with intention. I choose to be more AUTHENTIC.

I choose to increase the intensity of my love to match the intensity of the year.

I choose to not be dazzled by shopping and to stop buying things that are not important. To consume less and live more.

I choose to focus on the essentials and not the non-essentials.

I choose to meditate, sit in silent more, commune with nature, to always do clearing and shielding for the intense energies to come. I choose to get more rest and be grounded and drinking lots of water.

I choose to do yoga. 🙂 I choose to be more organized.

I choose BE-ing more… being love, joyful, excited, compassionate, vibrant,enchanting, creative, beautiful

I choose to be who God wants me to be.

I choose to embrace humanity with love and light, to embrace each moment and life itself! I choose to live fully!

I choose to surround myself with like-minded people. Meeting more people with the same vision and mission in life. I choose to meet more people I admire in transforming our world.

I choose to be successful in my inititatives (Heart Circle) and then two other initiatives I have in mind that I am birthing….

I choose to create more financially in DXN and also keeping options open to other possibilities that will be opened for me to provide us in continuing our support in MISSION and our growing initiatives in supporting the Earth and meeting sustainable societies..

I choose to make positive changes to help/support the transformation of Philippines.

I choose to be more patient with people I have judgements on. I choose to focus on the wonderful things on every person.

I choose to be a better daughter, sister, friend, lover, colleague and team mate.

I choose to follow through commitments. I choose to say NO when I have my hands full already.

I choose to have the best time of my life in serving humanity.

I choose to have fun and spread my happiness around.

This year… I choose to smile and laugh more…

I choose to travel and create awesome, fun, safe adventures….

I choose to continue my fish, veggie and fruit meals… I only choose to eat meals or food that are energetically good…

I choose to listen(see/feel) to my angels and guides.

I choose to ride the majestic dragon with excitement and intense love… and good vibes all year round!

Hello.. Enchanting 2012!!
