Words from the soulpoet himself @bleurosephotog 💗 👇
"When you search for your purpose, or try and control your life, you go against what your #Soul already planned. Searching is an ego trap leading you back to the same cycle of despair and disappointment. Trying to control every outcome is the egos way of limiting your success. Take action toward the things you want, but allow yourself to be led too. .
Your #soul left you an inner GPS map which leads you exactly where you are supposed to be. YOUR HAPPINESS. What makes you #happy is what you are supposed to follow. Happiness is the trail that will lead you to your reason for being here. #HAPPINESS is your only purpose. .
Instead of searching for your purpose, search for anything that KEEPS you from being happy, so you can get rid of it because it’s the only thing standing in your way. . 💡#BrainFood " - Joshua Dorfman

Your affirmation for today 🌟
What you focus on you feel, and experience more of. If you don’t like what your feeling and experiencing, perhaps the solution is to simply decide to focus on something that is actually in your control, such as your state of being and the thoughts that you’re thinking. Your ability to place your attention on certain things is your greatest power, so choose your focus wisely.
Barbacoa is a traditional form of barbecue in Mexico where the meat is cooked in its own steam. The process is very labor intensive.
First a large hole is dug in the ground about a meter deep, then a giant fire is prepared. Large pots of water bubbling with spiced broth and carne are placed in the middle. Meat is then placed on racks and seasoned with chili’s and spices.
Once that happens everyone must work to get the meat covered as quickly as possible to trap the flavor. First avocado leaves cover the meat, then palm leaves on top of that, then cloth over everything to trap the steam inside. Dirt is piled to cover the cloth and it is left cooking for an entire day.
It was an amazing process to be part of! And very delicious!
saturday thoughts •
I have been repeating this mantra, “I am lovable even when I make mistakes” all morning. Because hi, I’m human, and I made a mistake last night. Won’t get into the nitty-gritties but it’s a mistake I made for the second year in a row. And now, the morning after, my self-criticism came in, ahhh right. on. cue. •
I know why this happens, this self-criticism, and knowing why has helped me a lot in changing how I think after situations like these. From a young age, we are taught that making a mistake leads to punishment. This is all well-intentioned by our parents who did the best they could with the information they had available. Some of our mistakes were also dangerous so they just wanted us to be safe. But over time, this changed because we understood what was dangerous. Then our mistakes became different. We were then taught that our mistakes lets the people we love most down. They became “not angry but disappointed”. We were told to “think about what we’ve done” which has lead to the epidemic of us beating ourselves up for the same mistake over and over and over again. Thinking about what we have done for too long is toxic. We can think about it briefly to determine what change we want to implement going forward, apologize to anyone who was effected, but then we have to let it go. It has no benefit here anymore. •
The lesson here for me is this, no matter what I do “wrong”, I am worthy of love. I am love. And everyone else around me is worthy of love. They are love. In these moments, I have to love myself more. We have been taught through our lives that love comes with conditions. This is an illusion. True and real love has no limitations, it is unconditional. So if something we do makes the people in our lives value us less, that really has nothing to do with us. It’s their conditioning. But I’ve found with more self-love, I’ve been given more love from the people around me. •
So love yourself. You deserve it. More than you’ll ever be able to realize. And when you feel like you’re not worthy of love, repeating this mantra over and over has helped me a lot this morning. Maybe it can help you too.
Love & light friends✨
Not by my will, but by thy will-let it be done.
Learning to step aside. As in sharing Reiki or a healing without an attachment to it being about 'you' healing someone. 'Having energy' is about Allowing & Listening. It is Cultivating a relationship with Higher Self and trusting every single notion it instills. It is Learning to allow the power & wisdom of love to guide your path outside of fear, judgement and projection. This gives rise to the correct conditions whereby daily miracles, serendipity, synschronization and energy reserves beyond your known physical experience begin to ripen.
In honoring the voice of love (higher self) you always 'have' enough personal energy to 'do' and be what is true to you. Imagine we become exhausted through resisting love, through turning away from truth. We may unconsciously fear the collapse of self into the arms of love. For who or what might we be invited to leave behind?
As we learn to be held and carried by love.... as we learn to really let go in life, and trust love to 'do' the 'work' through us- we are given more energy reserves to accomplish the unfathomable. We match our own frequency in truth- and it comes manifest, multiplied an infinite fold. -Tuesday☆
This statement means so much, we always think that we need to do something to achieve something.
Work so you can then reap the fruits of your labor, unfortunately the same doesn't hold true when you speak of spiritual progress and getting closer to your true nature.
There's a lot of 'un learning' involved, deviating from norm and identifying your own thought pattern, years and years of rigid programming and social conditioning is hard to identify, let alone be getting rid off, there's a lot of work to do, but there is so little time.
Be silent, breathe, listen to your breath, stay with the 'I am'.

Left - Flexible
If you’ve picked left, or feel drawn to it now, you could somehow benefit from checking your own flexibility right now. I feel some of you know right away what I’m talking about here, but for the people in the back: it’s time to self-reflect in your relationships. Maybe it’s time to open your minds up a little by doing something completely new together, as I sense there is some tension in your energies right now. You might be too rigid in some matters, but this could be him/her too. It really doesn’t matter though: each one must take his/hers own responsibility and action in changing this anyhow!
I also feel someone just met or will meet a person this weekend, who’s making you feel comfortable from the third second you meet. He/she isn’t the type you’d normally go for, but he/she could be the love of your life. I could tell you, but isn’t the silver lining here that you just just trust yourself and your inner guidance? You’ll know if there are red flags later on, just what are you going to do with them this time if they come?
Others of you are flexing on yourselves this weekend, I feel a hermit kinda night or weekend for you? Whatever you decided, yasssss! Selfcare no. 1 for you and I see this will help you further. Might be that you’ll ease more into the fact that God really has something better for you in store! Anyway, enjoy and the new energy and insights you’ll get will top it off!

Do you remember her?
The little girl who played freely, danced open heartedly and dreamed big dreams. She could tell you inspiring stories. Vivid imagination colourful images. She was brave, lived in the moment, full of joy and wonder. Laughed wholeheartedly... Dare to dream like her?
Are you willing to dig deep and find courage to tell your story?
My first album is out in the world, it’s my first time experiencing this feeling with such a precious project.
I’m releasing it without control and let it breathe of his own !
Right ? Have you ever experienced one of your creation (music , business , art , anything) becoming alive ?
I would like to hear you about your experience !
How you felt ?
Any thoughts ? ✨🦋✨💎
(Link in my bio to get the album) sending so much love 💕 ~

Heading to @yogawildfire for their yoga self-care series finale. I was pretty sick for the last few weeks and I’m a bit like a cat in that I hide out when that happens. These felines kept me in check though and I’ve come out brighter than I was before I ever “fell ill”, and I also came out with so much gratitude to be able to walk without feeling sick! I came out with a deeper Compassion and empathy for my clients who struggle with migraines! Or, those who fly solo and don’t have a lover, friend, or family member to care for them at home. You know what I mean? It’s like ... The healing process isn’t glitter and rainbows ... well, until it is. ✨ 🌈 We go in feeling like shit, we humbly sit with the compost, and when we make space in our hearts for the divine lessons, the soul medicine, we make space for the gold and come out a Sunflower. ☀️ 🌻 Call it dis-ease, call it divine symptom, call it healing crisis ... it is what it is. We can chose to sit with it, or, ignore it ... A change to dive deep and resurface with a greater source of understanding yourself more ... of understanding what it means to hold thanks for waking in grace day to day ... or hold space for your self with love ... or see your place in the world and choose to keep on growing. Rise like a flower, step into your power, loving you, loving you, loving you. #catdancepartymorningmix 😍🥰😍 #dancingwiththedark
New blog post! I Left My ❤️ in CDMX. (Link in bio) My last day in Mexico City, and the fountain at Plaza Luis Cabrera, the place where Jack Kerouac the beat writers found their inspiration has been drained. Tonight the celebration of the Virgin of Guadalupe continues and the wellspring has run dry. It seems symbolic. A secret bidding to go on hidden in the heart of one of CMDX's sacred parks. 40 days minus a couple of nights I've stayed in this ancient city slowly sinking from the previous centuries' of drained canals. The inverse of Noah. My ark is a metal ship made for the sky. Moving a little more south as this journey of the soul, my backpacked heart takes me southward.
This city, this hostel, the people I've interacted with, the friends I have made and connected with on a spiritual level; the magical kismet of healing este lugar has brought me is immeasurable, incredible, life affirming, path defining. The city took my Texas driver's license and later my wallet- a shedding of the former self. My identity slowly eroding, Perhaps that's why the losses have been so hard. etchings in the marble to bring the fullness of who I am to the surface. These temporary sacrifices to reveal, sustain, a lasting permanence.
My Argentian friend, Ignacio, has been traveling for two years and recently had his phone stolen. It seems this city requires some type of sacrifice from each visitor. He said that the traveling can get lonely and there are things he misses from his motherland but that he isn't homesick. He said that "we are our own homes." His comment brought tears to my eyes- not that this is a task of any kind of difficulty, these days. We take these homes wherever we are. With each loss comes an new addition. I have no residence to call my own. But I'm finding there are mansions within me.
