Solar Eclipse ’17 Thoughts

Visible across the United States next month on August 21st, the next total solar eclipse is being dubbed the “Great American Eclipse.” Although, to quite the contrary, America isn’t as great as many of us feel. It’s an awesome event when you strip it of equating to patriotism plus some of South America can view the display too. I’m definitely a woman of the cosmos — I follow our sun’s planetary system and how astronomy and astrology cross. So I’m really excited for this solar eclipse! I got to witness the last one in 2009… my life was so much different then. This time around I feel like it is an act of fate and not only for just myself. The universe has coincided its alignments with society’s tone and dire need for change. These unique moments of planetary behavior bring about the utmost enlightenment and realization. People are more inclined to learn, to listen, to try to understand. But the message of change needs to be spoken, to be taught, to be learntClick here to visit NASA’s Total Eclipse page.

Mark your calendars!
For my East-coasters: we should anticipate a 1pm-4pm solar eclipse with totality occurring approximately between 2:41pm and 2:44pm. I’ll update changes if any.

A Coming Identity

There is something astounding you feel within when you share a certain kind of suffering with someone. It was naïve of me to think that there was no one else out there who’d understand my sentiments. Yet here we are. I’m a Nuyorican. And for anyone who doesn’t know what that is, it’s a Puerto Rican from New York. Yup — we have a name. Growing up apart of this community comes with its own way of life… like everyone else on earth.

I was able to really identify with the poem in this video because both the author, Noel Quiñones, and I had struggled with one of the same Nuyorican problems. Not speaking Spanish. All of what he mentions resonated deeply with me, some things more than others. Like for instance… it struck a nerve when he said it was like a countdown when you encountered someone who spoke Spanish to you or when he said, “it’s not lying if I feel something,” when I try to speak my “native” tongue. I hope you guys can enjoy it as thoroughly as I did. The video is below.

And I will say one last thing — people like us do belong. We create the identity of those like us and build our own space to thrive. And we don’t prevail even if it means using Google translator.

My Spiritual 7

For the bloomers who are aware of their chakras, energy, and crystal healing. And to those who aren’t familiar but still reading. The chakras are associated with different aspects of life that when one is completely mindful of them all, there is balance. Metaphysics is largely at play here, it’s not magic or witchcraft. 😂 It’s truly just a matter of mindfulness and meditation. My style of writing is to give readers the information they need to do their own research. My experience is mine only but personal experiences do inspire. So that’s what you see above… a quick overlook of the 7 major chakras & the corresponding crystal I cleanse, charge, and meditate with. If you’re interested in crystals, I hope you found this post a little charming. If you’re not and/or just passing by, I hope I planted a little seed of inspiration. Btw, that’s my handwriting!
