– Moving Past the Pain

. For a long time, I was scared of being hurt. So I did every thing I could to avoid it . I avoided getting too close to people. I avoided taking risks. I was playing it safe. Though I quickly realized that, in fact, I was not playing. I was not living. And that was hurting me way more than all the break ups and falls I had suffered from in the past . I learnt that pain is inevitable. And strangely enough, pain is what made me feel more alive. When I acknowledged my pain, it made me a better writer, a better painter. A better person, too. I could relate and connect with people more easily . Life is a magical experience, through which we learn so much. Getting hurt is part of it. But what matters is how we respond to the pain that life throws at us. Do we want to let it turn our heart into ice, or do we want to turn it into art? . I chose …

– All The Feels

. Are you, too, feeling like you’re about to explode and you don’t really understand why? Fear not, the answer is in the stars! (And the Moon…and the whole cosmos, actually!) . The energies are currently extremely powerful, between the last New Moon & Solar Eclipse and the Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse coming up at the end of the month. So if you’re usually sensitive to the cosmic energies, it is normal to feel everything 100000x stronger right now . We’re intensely pushed to release everything that doesn’t belong in our lives anymore, to prepare us for the second half of this transformational year. And this purging journey is not meant to be particularly pretty. So be gentle with yourself. Do what feels right for you. Don’t feel bad or guilty if you have to cancel dinner plans or if you don’t want to speak with anybody. Sleep for 12 hours if your body needs it. Cry, scream, cry and repeat, if this is how you want to express your emotions. Listen to yourself, …

– Trust the Process

. How easy is it to let your worries go and just trust? Not so much, right? But, believe me, when you do, it will all make sense. . Every event that happens, every person that we meet, are here to make us stronger and to make our soul grow. We are here to learn. Our soul chose what it wanted to experience in this lifetime before incarnating here. Nothing that happens is random . Actually, nothing just “happens” to us. We all create it. 💫🙏 __ You can also follow me on @suryya_holistic and @suryyaholistic __   On the Side: Ella Fitzgerald – Somewhere Over the Rainbow

– I feel it Coming

Change is scary We think it is easier to hold on Hold on tight We think we can avoid it But It usually comes unannounced and like a tornado, can destroy everything All the certainties All the expectations It can destroy everything Everything but you . Change is unavoidable You may lose everything you’ve ever known Everything but yourself . You can choose to let go Accept to press the reset button Plant a new seed, and just watch it grow .

– Shine your Light

Do not be afraid of shining. Shine as bright as you can and on the way, you will become a catalyst for change. The candles that you light will then go on to help others shine in their own way . Embrace your singularities. Speak your unique voice. Express your own truth . Give yourself permission to shine and most importantly, allow others to shine with you. You will never take anyone’s power, nor will you lose any of yours . The room is always in need of light.   __ You can also follow me on @suryya_holistic and @suryyaholistic __   On the Side : Jennifer Warnes – Let the Sunshine In  

– Living in the Moment

I often struggled to understand how to live in the moment . My heart was always thinking about the past. Rewinding the tape over and over again. Dwelling on what could have been. Regretting . My head was always dreaming about the future. Imagining every possible scenario. Doubting before even trying. Freaking out. . Many headaches, many more heartbreaks. Until I changed my outlook on life . Instead of looking behind and blaming myself for my mistakes, I accepted them as powerful lessons. Instead of thinking forward and over planning my whole existence, I simply trusted that things would fall into place when they were meant to . Most importantly, I started to appreciate the present. To express gratitude for all the little things that would make me smile on a daily basis. For all the things that would make me uncomfortable, too. Every day is full of magic and of beautiful lessons, if only we remember to open our eyes and heart. . Yesterday is gone, tomorrow might never show up. Really, all we …

– When All is Dark

  Sometimes our life is like a house of cards. In one second, pouf, everything can fall apart. When that happens, we can easily reach a very dark place. . When all the pillars, the walls, the roofs we have worked so hard to build collapse and crash to the ground, we are only left with ruins. Nothing makes sense anymore, everything is destroyed. There’s nothing left but chaos. . I find chaos quite poetic. When nothing is certain, everything is possible. We can write our story all over again. We can reinvent ourselves. We can rebuild our life. Brick by brick. This time, with a stronger foundation. . When all is dark, when all seems chaotic and lost, go deep into your heart; you will always find that faint light that will guide you home… One day at the time __ You can also follow me on @suryya_holistic and @suryyaholistic __   On the Side: LP – Tightrope

– Hello Darkness My Old Friend

  ” Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light “ . . It is ok to have a bad day. To feel lost on your path. To feel like you’re moving backwards. It is ok to just forget the world for a day or two. It is ok to put on the saddest song, lie on the bathroom floor, and cry. Cry because you thought you knew where you were going… and you are not so sure anymore. Cry because you feel lonely on your journey. It is ok to have one of those days, or two or maybe three. We’re only human. . What matters is to remember that we are not lost. We are not lonely. We are not moving backwards. Every single step is pushing us towards the right direction, even if we don’t always see it straight away. Every single person in our life, by their presence or absence, is bringing us closer to ourselves. When we feel loved …

– HELLO NEW MOON | July 13

  I usually start feeling the effects of a new/full moon at least three days before they kick in. This time is no exception. . The July New Moon in Cancer promises to be powerful – I know it seems that this is the case for all the moons lately, but.. – as it marks the beginning of a great eclipse session. Despite the emotional turmoil, it has our best interests at heart; It invites transformation into our lives and pushes us to (FINALLY!) embrace our own power. . So what to do if, like me, you strongly feel the Moon energies? My answer : DO nothing. Retreat into your shell. Take this time to dive deep into yourself. Deeper than ever before. Take a pilgrimage to your heart and soul. Look within yourself. Confront your fears; look at the them in the eyes and smile. Stand still. Feel yourself breathe . Allow your emotions to take their rightful place. Release everything that does not belong in your life anymore. Cry, if you need to. …

– Paris before Dawn

. There’s something about Paris before dawn Binmen Night birds Lovers The first metros The first cafes Those who run Those who walk their dogs Those who can’t remember where they live Those who have no home The poet The drunk The broken-hearted . . . There’s something about Paris before dawn The hope to find answers His absence The silence The regrets The insomnia A chance to create a new reality Before the street lights go out Before the sun rises . . . There’s something about Paris before dawn The wind that slaps you in the face To remind you that you’re alive . . The promise of a new beginning The promise of a better tomorrow .
