Hi there! So I’ve noticed some new faces on here & wanted to share a little bit more about me and maybe you can share a little about you? .
1️⃣ I grew up in Riverside county and moved to LA not long after I turned 22 years old. 22 was a big one for me. My father took his life in the same month as my 22nd birthday. (It’s the 10yr anniversary of his departing) I was raised by a single mother, so father figures were in & out of my life, and in & out of prision since I was a child. .
2️⃣ For a really long time I didn’t know how to feel my feelings or trust anyone or myself. I turned to numbing with food, alcohol, and etc. On the outside it looked like I was having a lot of fun, some of it was fun, but most of it was a way to cope with & numb my pain. I had what @elizabeth_gilbert_writer calls the bathroom floor moment, where I was crying on floor, and eventually I picked myself up & made the choice to change everything.
3️⃣ My beloved is Mike Dargas. We’ve been together for almost four years. I like to joke that he is like the archangel Michael because he has been a walking angel in my life, our relationship isn’t always perfect, but I’m so grateful for him. Fun fact, we lived in Germany for almost a year before we moved back to LA where we live now. .
4️⃣ I have a younger sister (different biological fathers but so similar)
& two adorable nephews. I love being an aunty. .
5️⃣ I did a Yoga teacher training several years ago & found Ceremonial Cacao from Guatemala which changed my life forever. My father was from Guatemala, so the cacao helped me to connect with my ancestors, and vice versa. And now in ceremonial settings I serve the sacred gentle plant medicine Cacao & guide others back to their hearts with love.
6️⃣ I recently published my first book “A Child of Magic”. A fiction fantasy for adults & their inner child. About Lana Livia coming into the world a magical being, who forgets her magic/truth through the human experience, until she finds yoga, ceremonial cacao, & connects back with her magic. Sound familiar? .
Alright, so now you know lots more about me. So please tell me where are you from & what intention are you setting for today?
Ho fatto un patto sai...
Con le mie emozioni,le lascio libere
E loro non mi fanno fuori!
