Having a journal is an essential part of anyones life at any age. It helps shape the person you are, learn from past mistakes, and clears your mind. I need your help to clear and build the minds of some beautiful young ladies I wish to mentor this upcoming school year.
My wish is to donate a journal to each female student in our Girls Group. How do you play a part in this...
1. Purchase a journal for one student.
2. Write empowering message or affirmations on the last page.
3. Write 3 positive words throughout the journal.
4. Contact me before September 1 to arrange pick-up of your special gift.
5. Smile! You just helped change someones life.
Your gift will help a young female feel connected to others!
Today I finally received a call from my mother who is currently in Puerto Rico. This crazy lady decided to “go back home” knowing that there was a possibility that there wasn’t a home to go to. Even though we joked about that fact with tears in our eyes, it was still a hard pill to swallow. Nevertheless, she boarded a plane and went home. One of her main reasons for going back home was to know for herself how her siblings were doing. She is not the eldest of the clan but she has taken on a role to care, help and nurture them. I’m very proud of what my mother has accomplished. The same goes for her siblings which consist of 11 brothers and sister. Currently living, 6 out of the 11 including my old lady. Tía Susan's personality is unique and memorable to all that meet her . Tía Inez is a second mother to me. Those of you that love my cooking need to thank her too. Tía Maria is the comedian, seamstress, musician and healer (The Jack of all Trades). Tía Vidalina is a retired nurse, even though she is not currently working she is only a phone call away. Tío Tony is a construction worker but we all know he needs to sit down! He is very active in his communtiy, especial within the local church. They are just like your uncles and aunts. We are all responsible to help them one way or another.
I need to help them but I honestly can’t do it without you.
For older generations asking for money or donations from you will be considered a BIG NO NO!!! So…
November 1 - 15
All payments I receive from restorative massages, chair massages and energy healing sessions will be donated to the Negrón Santiago Family.
Look up the modalities, pick the best one for you and let’s help our extended familia.
I've been at crossroads when people ask me what I do for a living. Cause there is a sense of validation when I talk about Massage Therapy but the minute Energy Work comes into the conversation I'm meet with curiosity. Which hey, it isn't bad, here is my opportunity to educate others. Plus I do understand how they think and feel because before I educated myself I thought I was losing it. 😂 I will say this, we are all given a special gift/abilities. It will only flourish if we put it into practice. Well, energy healing is one of my gifts. With every session, I set high intentions for my clients. It's great when someone has the best intentions for you and it's great to know someone can channel positive energy your way. Don't we all need that at some point of our lives?
Do some research on the modality and providers. Choose one that benefits you!
Here is a list of some different types of energy work provided to people.
I've come to learn that I can't fix everyone's issues in one visit. I won't lie... I wish I could. Reality is we have ignored signals from our bodies and now we want that magical pill. Now that pill will only last a few hours and have mega side effects. Who wants that?
To see results from a massage, you need to make it a regimen. Its like anything else; you need to create good habits to see great results.
With success comes constant movement. This "go, go, go" mentality because things need to get done. You have a to-do list on your cell phone, bedside table and calendar. A continuous list of things that need to get done. You start multitasking, your days seem longer and well, life just drags. Your quest to success can become full of anxiety. This can then become frustrating but you know giving up is not an option. You just need to work around it. Here are a few suggestions on how to help you get through the day.

Planting a seed for a new beginning doesn't seem to be an easy task. We have sleepless nights creating lists on "how to" when in reality we just need positive thoughts. Positivity empowers you beyond any tool out there. Being a positive person is free and accessible at all times. You just need to know that today is a good day to start.
To help you embark is this new way of being, I have compiled some of my favorite affirmations. (An affirmation is a positive declaration that something is already so.) I recite one affirmation daily and feel such strength in my words. I am empowered by these words which affect my day tremendously.
If today is a good day to start, print this screen or connect with Dai and I'll email you the affirmations. Once you have them, you can read them out loud, write them or use them during mediation. What ever works for you. Just give it a try!
