Today is my birthday
Today is the day I feel infinite gratitude to my mother and father
For bringing me in life
Today is the day I relive their mutual love
No matter their current life circumstances
Because they are divorced for many years now
And they hardly talk to each other
Which I don’t like much
Though, after all, is none of my business
What matters to me is that 38 years ago
They were somehow imperfectly in love
And today is the day I can celebrate this beautiful gift
It all started as a painful recognition after pushing unconsciously away the man I was falling in love with
I wish reality was different inside of me…
I wish I was not so hungry for love that blind me to see you
I wish I was strong enough to stay centered while in the distance
I wish I was vulnerable enough…” bla bla bla
I wish I was more of this; I wish I was more of that.

I am who I am, a work in pro
These days I have been reading "Rumi’s Little Book of Love" and below is a quote that I was inspired to share with you. It reminded me of a breakthrough embodied comprehension I had few years ago in one of my healing sessions with medicinal plants; that is the life’s gift of being incarnated, the beauty and challenge of being Embodied Spirits.
For a long time, I used to think of my body as a cage, getting frustrated by its limitations or being overwhelmed from its pains an

May we always BE LOVE in life!
maria BE LOVE Love does no harm Love is simple
And as such, needs to be easy.
Everything else is not love
It may have a different name

Love has no expectations, nor pretensions Love is humble
Love is simple
And as such, needs
There are moments in life that everything you thought about who you are and what really matters in your life, smashes like a broken window…these are moments of deep inner transformation.
One more time, since coming back from Argentina, I have been going through a moment like this. I am grateful it is happening, as it is essential for me to be happy, but I still wonder why making conscious old feelings from wounds and patterns that once were necessary to survive but now don
Have you ever felt like you belong nowhere?
Have you ever asked yourself, Where is my true home?
If so, this Loveletter is for you.
For the past week, after I left my homeland, Greece, to come back to my home in San Francisco, I been in a transition mode. In this limbo, words seem empty to describe the richness of my journey, but my body feels completely alive.
While I revisit old memories and swim in new ones, I am feeling again many mixed feelings. My heart sighs… I fee
I want to share a blog post that I wrote recently for Therapy4u.org It is personal and feels vulnerable but it is real... Its title is: "What makes me fall for emotionally unavailable guys? Authenticity in relationships."
Just a heads up: it's not about blaming guys, me, or anyone. I am grateful for all the men I have met in my life. It's about the emotional process of going through "failed attempts" of seeking love and looking into some of the internal barriers that keep l
