The alien invasion

(This is me at 3 years old) When you think of an alien invasion (ha!ha!), how do you feel? what is your body telling you? what do your muscles do? how is your breath? how is your soul? Back in February I wrote a post about freedom where I talked about my fears. In this … Continue reading


Only when our hearts are full, we can forgive. Forgiveness does not happen in the mind, but in the body and the soul. Forgiveness is not something that the mind can create, it must be felt at the cellular level, deeply in our bodies. When our hearts are full of love, then, and only then, … Continue reading


Until very recently, I hated the word “power”. It felt aggressive, violent, judgmental, big ego, fearful and destructive. I never liked it, and I told myself, I never will…until last week… I was having a texting conversation with a good friend, and I told her that I preferred the word “inner strength” to “power”, and … Continue reading


(Picture taken at the beach near our house in Wassenaar) I believe the biggest roadblock to my happiness has been my fears…Fear has blocked me physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Until recently… For most of my life, I lived in fear…growing up in a communist country, escaping Romania and living in a refugee camp, moving from … Continue reading

Purposeful work

Some people might think that life is about luck, and some people are lucky and other unlucky. To seem extent, I disagree with that. For the majority of us, we have a little bit of everything in life. Moments of despair, times of faith, instants of happiness, and seconds of second thoughts. Sometimes we are … Continue reading

A lived life

(Picture taken in old Stockholm this past September) This evening I went to a singing bowls class. But it was not only singing bowls that we listened to but an array of primal sounds that penetrated our bodies and invaded our souls…It was like going back in time, many lives back, to our primitive state. … Continue reading

The rainbow

(Picture taken on my way to Yoga on my bicycle a few weeks back)  When people ask me where I am from, it’s really complicated for me…”Well, I am originally from Romania, but I grew up in Argentina, but I really don’t feel Romanian because I lived there only 5 years, but I am not … Continue reading

Coming out of hibernation

I know, I know…I have been hibernating for the past 2 years…Not writing, not teaching, not giving Reiki (except to my family of course), it seemed at the beginning weird and unnatural. In Brussels, I had several chances to teach Yoga or meditation, but I decided no. Not the right time. I could feel it … Continue reading


For so many years my spirituality has been out there, big, glorious, extravagant at times. And as much as I feel this is true, my spirituality is also in here, inside my body, my breath, my every living cell. It is in the simple. It is in the now. It is in the mere act … Continue reading

Moving on

“If we fear change, we are blind to the mystery of life.” (Marc Nepo, Parabola Magazine, Fall 2015). When I started feeling at home in Memphis, the Universe is telling me: “Time to move on!”. I would have never thought that would be possible, not right now, when I am making life long connections through … Continue reading
