A lot of people who know me on an acquaintance-friend level assume I have my life together. And maybe in some ways I do. I inherited a strange characteristic from my mom that I both love and loath-- the desire to be disciplined, committed, and I guess in some ways seemingly "put together." To be passionate and involved and be able to handle all these crazy corners of my life.
But the reality is, I have been battling storms and monsters much scarier than the ones that you find under your bed. I've been battling them since I was 7 years old, and this "discipline" and "passion," while still a real part of me, is also a mask, a way for me to act like everything's always fine.
But some days are just damn hard. The past week has re-surfaced some of the worst fears and anxieties I've ever dealt with in these 13 years. But I am a fighter. I am a fighter and have written my own strength since age 7. I am a fighter but I am also striving to accept where I am today and every day, and be okay with these highs and lows. They will come and they will go, just as the sun will rise and set. ☀️🌙
The Universal Energies Report: Volatile
The Universal Energy around the Lunar Eclipse in the early hours of July 27th is volatile to say the least. Emotions will be stronger than usual and the challenge of deep trigger type situations, prominent. For some of you, including myself, these Energies are already in play bringing anxiety to the fore. An uncomfortable feeling resulting in sleeplessness and short fuses emotionally. There is a Manic feel to these energies. There is an urgency that these old patterns, our old behaviours, the long held personal secrets have to go.......Now!!!
At the same time, our intuition is strong, sending up red flags and sensing where situations and relationships are out of alignment with our new set of values. All the inner work that we have done recently on ourselves has changed our out-look on life, on what is important to us, meaning our values have changed.
The outer physical world is still status quo and may be out of alignment with our values now creating tension, conflict between how we feel it should be and what it is.
There is during this period a potential for political unrest, financial upheaval, social protests also due to changing values on a Collective Consciousness scale.
Challenges will abound around thoughts and communication in general as Mercury has entered its Shadow period now, one week before going retrograde on July 26th until the first week of August.
Stay true to your core values and beliefs. Get out into Nature as much as possible to literally ground your energy. Recognize that should someone around you become triggered, you don’t need to be : not your horse, not your merry go round! Keep your emotions as distanced as possible. Relax, stay Calm and Peacefully move on.
I’ll be out on the Pacific Rim during this period grounding and sun/water/forest bathing, connecting with the elements and sending high vibes to all.

Sooo... I have some bad news to share with my fellow dogs. But let me start from the beginning. Nobody let me go to the beach today. NOBODY. Their excuse was that Alex (my ex friend, as he was responsible for get me out of water) Lifeguard - is that even a real name?? - told Mari and Nico that an immense amount of stingrays were in Poseidon’s ocean near my house. And there were like five accidents in only one day. Allegedly (I don’t believe it) people stepped on their sting - humans are sooo dumb - feet got super swollen, need urgent attention blah blah blah. It’s soo easy to deal with that. Just pee on the area... right? Or that is for jellyfish? Anyways, Mari got super neurotic ever that I, Nestor, master of the ocean, king of the beach (that’s how girls called me) would step in one of them. Totally overreacting from Alex Lifeguard - if you’re reading this, I’ve divorced you - and Mari. Nico, to be honest, even try to reason with her. But NO! No beach for Nestor till the stingrays go away (probably two days, they are ALLEGEDLY migrating).
Now you get why I was super bored and vindictive, right? Well, I did something I never did before: sneaked into Mari’s closet, grabbed her FAVORITE FLIP FLOP EVER and destroyed it in two seconds. Them, I placed the remaining pieces on her bed. THAT is where the bad news enter my story: I hide from her putting my face against the bed. I wasn’t seeing anything... BUT SHE SAW ME!! Unbelievable how hoomans can see us when we cannot see them.
Anyways, I’m grounded, she’s mad and the stingrays are happily enjoying MY BEACH.
Stingrays 1 Nestor 0

Why are we in such a rush to be in our desired future?
Why can’t we realise the truth is in each moment and where you are in each moment is perfect.
When I started to realise this truth my life took a dramatic shift.
I could settle into be where I am and know I’m growing and unfolding in a perfect way at my perfect pace.
Being fully where I am.
I hope you can drop into this truth and really just be here. Be you, on your path.
Exactly where you need to be.
Check out my free three part meditation series if you want to anchor into more of this energy.
We are experiencing such dramatic shifts and expansion at this time that getting grounded is so essential to our wholeness and wellness.
Be healthy, happy and free.
Day 6 of 65 days of getting grounded: When Melbourne gives you 10 minutes of winter sunshine glory you have to seize the chance to get out there and get barefoot!
And while I was feeling the earth beneath my feet, and reconnecting to the ground’s energy I felt so strongly the need to express the importance of being curious. Curiosity is one of my deepest values and relates to how I work with my clients, from a space of genuine and intense desire to get to know their deepest values, beliefs and needs. Curiosity is the undercurrent of my constant thirst for knowledge and learning, reading and asking where I have gaps in my understanding and comprehension. .
Being curious is also about experience. I’m no adrenaline junkie but I am someone who desires new experiences. The kind of experiences that challenge my comprehension of the world, feed my soul or deepen my connections.
Curiosity is also behind my 65 days of getting grounded. I was born and grew up in the Caribbean. Shoes weren’t a thing for me. Until I moved to England at 10 and shoes were kind of expected. At 42 I realised that my body was curious about what would happen if I spent more time grounded. And I am loving the journey! ⚡️⚡️⚡️

If you’re anything like me...⠀⠀
You are tired of hearing about the latest fad diets and people telling you that you have to follow *insert diet name* here • having people skeptical about whole foods like fruit 🍉🍌saying to avoid them because it’s a source of sugar and not batting an eye at a list of 20+ ingredients that are illegible • or people telling someone they need to starve themselves to lose weight (and no we aren’t talking about a reasonable caloric deficit here).⠀⠀
Give me a raised hand here 🙋🏼♀️ in the comments, if you too are like me 👉🏻 tired of all the fad-ish style recommendations from “google-experts” (🤣) that don’t fit YOUR individual needs. It’s time we commit to eat less from a box and more from the earth 🌏 to fit your needs!
in your next post to share how you are committing more to whole food living 🌱🍴Can I get a heck yes!? 😜

To say the past couple weeks have been hell would be to put it lightly...very lightly. But, as I cried from my hotel room earlier today, I’m reminded that all suffering is temporary. All of it. I’m also reminded that I’m a fighter...a fucking warrior, really! I’ve fought and survived the unsurvivable more times than once. When I was given a 30% chance of surviving heart failure, I showed docs a 100% recovery.
Moment of truth...things aren’t good right now. I’m sick. I’m stressed out. I’ve been treated unfairly. And I’ve been letting it get me down. I’ve been feeling scared, afraid, and lost. But then I remembered...I have all these tools. My yoga practice. My friends and family to lean on. My voice. My strengths, even in my weakness. I’m a Leo. A fire sign. A lioness. The struggle is real...and it’s big. But I am strong. And my God is even bigger and stronger.
Please pray for me and my littles as we go thru some major life transitions. The struggle is real...AND it’s temporary.
How have you overcome challenging and difficult times in your own life? If you’re going through difficult times, remember...it’s temporary. You will get thru it and rise stronger.
And I miss keeping all with all of you on Insta...but I’ll be back soon 🙏🏻

Thankful for these strong legs that carry me up and down mountains ✨
Deeply rooted ...
And sacred ... And blessed

Don’t let anyone else define you or dim your light.
None of us are any one color... share them all.
Jewelry / / more than adornment, it holds special meaning, protection and magical powers. I often get asked what my necklace is— it’s a Scarab to represent rebirth and the Goddess Ma’at to represent balance and truth. I wear it everyday and I feel connected to the energies of these talismans and to my Grandma, my mom and my sister who bought similar charms
Is my son reading next to me in bed on a Friday night? Yes. Is it because he’s grounded from the outside world for an entire month? Yes. Do I hate it? Not even a little. #parenting #grounded #books
Mind + Body Connection 🙌 Such an important part of living a healthy and balanced life. Take time out of your day to sit, breathe, listen to your body and connect with nature. Simply, awesome! Via @yogaoutback #weekendvibes
One year. ☝🏻
Left is ungrounded, unsure.
Right is grounded, rounded, rooted, and still...a little unsure.
Constantly listening to my body, asking what it needs what it’s ready for.
In this last year, I’ve needed and asked for strength, for groundedness, stability.
Feeling strong in my body, grounded in my body..ripples out into the Universe, letting it know I am ready to earth and root myself.
Happy 3 months, NYC. 🙏🏻
