EMOTIONAL MONDAY: LEARNING ABOUT ‘EXCEPTIONAL’

EMOTIONAL MONDAY: LEARNING ABOUT ‘EXCEPTIONAL’

It is my intention to grow and expand my emotional library this year. Being able to point out specific emotions helps identify exactly what needs healing. Having an extensive emotional library also equips us with clarity, which is quintessential to manifesting the goodness we dream for. […]

EMOTIONAL MONDAY: LEARNING ABOUT ‘ADEQUATE’

(AD) We puffed on Therapeutic Air!

(AD) We puffed on Therapeutic Air!

And it was quite the riveting experience!

This is the MONQ personal essential oil diffuser – and that down below is me showing you just how to use it in order to get all zen’d up and soothed <3

 

First thing’s first though: MONQs are not vapes or e-cigarettes (like some of my friends like to tease), but sleek-looking devices, that come in seven different blends, and insert aromatherapy into your olfactory system. You breathe essential oil into your mouth and exhale through your nose, instantly feeling more grounded than before.

Having ditched perfume for essential oils a few months earlier this year, the MONQ range and novel idea of a personal, portable aromatherapy diffuser really spoke to me. And now that I’ve tried all seven blends – zen, sleepy, healthy, active, vibrant, sexy, happy – I’m happy to report on the results 😉

  • Sexy, healthy and sleepy are my absolute faves! Sexy is sweet and flavourful, healthy hits the spot when it comes to soothing me down and sleepy had me ready and dreaming with stressful exams and plane trips ahead of me the following day – so I’d say it’s quite the discovery!
  • MONQs have diamond-like tips which light up when you breathe in and things heat up <3 Looks amazing, brings your IG story to life and it’s a hit with small kids or curious lil’ brothers and sisters haha!
  • They’re really strong and have a potent aroma. The top-notch, organic plants + essential oils inside every MONQ help with that, turning every blend into a fragrant healing device.
  • No tobacco, no nicotine, no artificial chemicals – this is really important, and means everybody can benefit from the MONQ blends, without any compromise!
Ia-ti adio de la frica – este SIMPLU!

Ia-ti adio de la frica – este SIMPLU!

2017 este un an al inceputurilor, al unui nou ‘eu’, ce se naste dupa un 2016 ce a curatat, facut loc si pregatit terenul pentru debutul unui nou ciclu de invatare. Reamintindu-ne cum, in viata, exista doua emotii primare – frica si iubirea – este superb sa […]

A LIST OF THINGS I GAVE UP ON IN 2016

A LIST OF THINGS I GAVE UP ON IN 2016

Decluttering is the first step to living a peaceful life. Freeing up space for our highest good to come in is therefore essential, so here’s a list of stuff I said bye-bye to throughout 2016 🙂 Perfume – because it’s full of nasty chemicals which […]

ELIMINATING FEAR – DAY BY DAY

ELIMINATING FEAR – DAY BY DAY

Throughout my life, FEAR has been my drug of choice. For some grander reason, that I can’t quite fully comprehend now, fear has always been there for me, slowly turning into a comforting state of mind that I could always evade to. And that’s how fear became my go-to feeling every time anything good was about to happen, slowly but surely turning into the perfect self-sabotage mechanism I now recognise to have been employing over the years.

Fear is an amazingly efficient tool we use in order to stay away from joy and abundance. Now why would any sane person consciously choose to do so? Because we know how to deal with lack and adversity; failure feels very familiar, and certainly easier to process than divine abundance and unlimited prosperity, which most of us simply cannot fathom let alone accommodate as an acceptable, integral part of our lives.

Living richly and gloriously (which doesn’t have anything to do with finances) has come to feel alien and unattainable, which is why we turn to fear to keep us away from living our highest good.

And it’s only when you welcome fear with love, acceptance and gratitude that healing can start happening. As long as feelings of fears are being processed by a judgmental, limited mind, suffering occurs, and healing stands absolutely no chance whatsoever.

Instead of being angered by feelings of fear, simply breathe and let them go away, like waves do. Be grateful for your spiritual capacity of cherishing fear and seeing it for what it really is: a teacher, teaching you stuff about your own self that you were simply not seeing before. Be gentle. And patient. Then go have a yummy snack. Depending on the snack you choose, you might experience contempt or anger. And even fear because you hopped off the positivity wagon. But let that be yet another lesson that god (or life/universe/divinity) would have you learn. And that’s how you heal. Not in a few days or in a decade or two. But for as long as you shall be alive, in the here and now and sweetness of the present 🙂

VEGAN DISASTERS & LESSONS IN MALTA

VEGAN DISASTERS & LESSONS IN MALTA

Just back from an eye-opening trip to Malta, where I hardly ever ate vegan – and these are some of the things I’ve learned – cause all things (disasters included!) are lessons that god would have us learn 😉 Eating processed, acid forming foods (animal derived […]

2-INGREDIENT SUPER LUNCH!

2-INGREDIENT SUPER LUNCH!

This summer I’m on a quest to keep life simple (when it comes to food – that is!). Simple is power and simple gives you that much more energy, time and willingness to shine as bright as you’re supposed to be shining.  Breakfast – already […]

I’M HAVING FRUIT FOR BREAKFAST, EVERY SINGLE DAY!

I’M HAVING FRUIT FOR BREAKFAST, EVERY SINGLE DAY!

Salami sandwiches and a sturdy cup of milk is what I’d usually have for breakfast, throughout most of my upbringing really. Weekends were for omelettes, topped with bacon and drenched in butter…

Fast-forward to my becoming vegan, breakfast quickly turned into this super-tricky meal to fix: I never quite knew what to have, and my deep-seated history made it feel like nothing was ever filling enough.

And that’s how old fears and detrimental beliefs managed, for possibly too long, to keep me away from the one, most-beneficial, digestion-friendly and energy-boosting morning food: FRUIT!

This summer I’m *ecstatically* celebrating one year of having fruit, just fruit and nothing but fruit for breakfast! I can now honestly say that, ever since starting my vegan journey, choosing fruit for breakfast has been the greatest step I could’ve taken, and the one I’ll never stop talking and raving about 🙂

There’s many things one can do differently when first getting started on a plant-based, cruelty-free lifestyle, but fruit for breakfast worked so well for me (and could probably do wonders for you, too!) considering that:

– mornings and an empty stomach are the best set-up for fruit digestion – fruit comes in and goes out of your system the fastest of all them food groups, so having nothing (literally!) stand between your fruit meal and the glorious way out is essential. And pretty much only achievable throughout mornings 🙂

– the mere thought of a yummy, colorful, energy-boosting bowl-full of fruit makes me so excited for the day ahead. I go to bed thinking about the delish treat waiting for me in the morning, and I wake up eager to reach for my fruit supplies.

– fruit is, for the most part, incredibly alkaline. Not only does fruit provide us with all important nutrients (antioxidants, vitamins, enzymes, you know the drill), but it also aids in the detox process, gets the lymph moving and … in all fairness, makes for some gorgeous Instagram posts ;))

In love with the Italian Riviera (or the Ligure) and want something else other than Cinque Terre? Than let’s take a look at this adorable little place I’ve discovered, called Varigotti: one gelateria, just two pizzerias, a smoothie bar, a proper maze of pink, red […]
