You think you know things and then you listen to this one speak. Sheesh. To all the ladies that showed up, THANK YOU for your trust in us and in this. A spiritual army of latinas (or anybody really) in the making. My mind was blown by what I learned, what you shared, what I had the courage to share and the general MAGIC that transpired this evening. So much more coming... #PrendeTuLuz @carinaluzvalladolid717 #laniñainterior #laniñainterna

The inner child. The topic for our meditation tonight in Chula Vista (head to @car@carinaluzvalladolid717 for info we have a few spots left) and wanted to share this wasps’ nest that we decided to not disturb. They decided to build it right outside my bedroom window, a perfect and safe distance from the babies but also perfect to investigate from behind the glass. According to @girlnextdoorhoney “They are Paper wasps. Their nest will not get bigger than what you see now. They are not aggressive like yellow jackets. They are actually really docile. They help control spider and fly populations and are pollinators too.” So they get to stay and I get to try and figure out why hexagons keep coming into my life! My children’s curiosity with which they approached the nest (a great lesson in how ecosystems work) is the same curiosity with which we should explore who we were and what we lived, both good and bad, when we were that age. Unprocessed, those experiences or trauma keep us in the cycle of reacting with the emotional intelligence we had when the event occurred. I’ve learned that it doesn’t even have to be one single traumatic event, but the accumulation of events in a childhood where you didn’t feel seen or safe. 🙋🏻‍♀️. We’ll talk about this tonight. I’ll share some specific experiences and just like you attending, just like Anna and David with the wasps nest, I’M HERE TO LEARN. I’M WILLING TO LISTEN. Stay curious. #prendetuluz @carinaluzvalladolid717 #seeuinabit 📸 @isabellamfuncke

One swipe. One swipe on an app can remove the crows feet. One swipe can darken the grays. One swipe can erase the pores. Incredible how we’ve been trained to even see these things. That there are entire industries benefiting from our insecurities. I can’t walk away from the makeup tho. Maybe when I become enlightened, in like 6 lives. In this life I’m just ok with looking at this person in the mirror and seeing my literal and figurative stripes as a badges of honor. The fight to become more authentic every day is real. And I have to win that fight to be able to receive the gifts that come from that courage. #thisisme❤️

We had a pizza party! Gaby made us a chocolate cake! Thank you Gaby! Pizza with Philips tomato sauce topped with arugula and arugula blossoms from the garden (the blossoms are my fave), salad was endive cut lengthwise, caramelized walnuts with a little chipotle, balsamic-honey-dijon vinaigrette, pancetta, anjou pear slices and Roquefort cheese crumbles. Philip uncorked an Il Pino and we all lived pretty much happily ever after. Amen. Happy Birthday suegra... #birthday #cake #cumpleaños @gabriellaarnaizv @sevenxvventures @carinaluzvalladolid717 @michellebuttonexperiences

Suegra’s Birthday... Set table inspired by calaveras and carnations and neutral tones. Oaxaca sneaking a peak with flowers floating in water bowls to absorb energies. Calaveras from my latest trip. All flowers from the garden, carnations, hibiscus (jamaica), sage, thistle, amaranth and garden roses... Pizza party and an endive, caramelized walnut and Roquefort cheese salad... Feliz Cumple suegra! #mexico #oaxaca #tablesetting #tabledecor #tablescape

It’s #worldsmentalhealthday. Don’t question. Don’t ask. Don’t judge. Don’t try and resolve it. Just love them today. Just LOVE that person today. May we all be like children and love like children and connect like children. The focus of our next meditation event is just that; to hopefully guide us back to that place where we still had hope and love and were able to SEE people. Before the world did what it does. We’d love it if you joined us. Link in profile❤️ @carinaluzvalladolid717 #prendetuluz
