• Quarantine Tales #4

    “Going back to normal”   That’s what everyone says… As I’ve mentioned on previous blogs, I don’t feel like we’re going back to “normal” or that we should go back to it…    In Barcelona, we’re now in phase 1 of “descalating”. I should feel excited to go back to being able to be in the streets whenever I want… but I’m not.  This quarantine has made me afraid of the outside. There are still people dying from the virus and we’re going out already?   I’ve also heard and read that the vaccine will have a location device so that the government can know where you are and what…

  • Quarantine Tales #3

    At the early days of the lock down, I felt very anxious but also secure.    Anxious because we’re living a freaking pandemic.    Secure because I had (still do) food, shelter and my family and loved ones were good.   What I did to deal with this anxiety was to do a little list of things I could do and things I had control over: Stay at home, even though I had just moved to another city and the beach is 10 min away from where I lived Not go into panic mode and panic-buy toilet paper. Instead, smile while at the supermarket and be calm and kind Help…

  • Quarantine Tales #2

    I don’t watch the news. I am barely in Social Media right now. There is so much negativity right now that sometimes it feels like it’s the end of the world.   I’ve heard so many people saying that when this is all over, it will be the same. People are still going to be absent minded, disrespectful towards nature, and the rich will still be the rich.    But then I think how nature is regenerating itself, how governments are showing their true colours, how we’re forced to stay at our freaking homes and think, for once, what we actually want to do with our lives.   It is…

  • All About The Moon…

      It is commonly said that if the moon can move the ocean, it naturally affects us humans at some capacity, since we’re 70% made of water.   I do feel a certain way when its full moon and I notice the mood of people changing when it’s new moon. However, I’m not checking the calendar daily to see if the moon is crescent or descent or whatever…   There is lots of info online with the different phases of the moon. For the sake of simplicity, I’m just going to tell you what I’ve learnt and what I personally do, but feel free to expand or cut it down…

  • Quarantine Tales #1

    Let me start by saying this: I don’t know what I’m doing. I’ve been in lock down for more than 40 days. There are good days and bad days.   Here’s how I deal with my days so that I’m not going crazy. Or maybe I am…   …Just take what serves you and leave the rest. We’re so used to being “productive” that when we’re left without anything to do, we don’t feel satisfied with out lives. Maybe it’s just human nature and my anti-capitalist view is showing, but either way…  Every day, I am doing 3 things in the morning. Consistently.  Shower Coffee Meditate This allows my “productive”…

  • All About Chakras

      I have always been into self knowledge. Even when I was going to Church or talking to a Muslim friend, I tried to learn something to better myself so as to become the best version of myself.   When I heard “spirituality”, the association I had in my head were words like yoga, rocks that are magical – apparently – and horoscopes. However, one day, I went down the rabbit whole. I think I started with a documentary on quantum physics, in which it was explained that everything is energy (more about that on this post).   After that, I came across several videos on YouTube where people were…

  • The World Is Changing…

    … And so are you.   With the current situation, most countries are advising/”forcing” people to be inside their houses. We are forced to be in our home, whatever your living arrangement is, and wait until this virus is “gone” or “dealt with”.   This had not happened before for most of us and so it’s a situation that is very hard to navigate. For starters, it’s hard to even grasp what’s going on… Let alone what will happen in the future. We each have our way to dealing with the situation… Some people are trying to make themselves busy and they book million classes online. Some are feeling down…

  • All About Reiki Healing

    What is it? “Reiki” is a compound word:  Rei: Universal Energy/from God, divine, omnipresent in the universe and makes it able to keep expanding (spiritual part).  Ki: Vital force, all living being’s life that irradiates cater and energy (part of the physical body). “Prana” for Hindus, “chi” for Chinese.  Liberal definition: Universal energy of life guided or directed by God or spiritually.
