pinkchocolatebreak I went to paradise yesterday!! The biggest shopping in gemstones and crystals. Imagine two floors filled with powerful stones?? The energy there was pure magic felt so overwhelmed with all the choices but in the end found plenty of gems to assist me in my journey 😛 If you're in Rio and are looking for gems this location is approx 1 hour from Ipanema by bus. Take the blue busses. Even though they're a bit pricier than regular busses it's worth it since it's a long ride #magic #gemstones #crystals #healing #legep #riodejaneiro 2d

pinkchocolatebreak Good morning! Tried a new DIY hair mask this week and I love how soft my hair turned out here's my recipe:

4 tbsp greek yoghurt
4 tbsp cheap conditioner
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp bepanthol solution (you can substitute it with bepanthene creme the cream for babies)
1 tbsp cicatricure (moisturizing cream for scars)
I mixed all ingredients in a bowl and left it in for 30 min. Then I finger detangled and braided my hair. My hair came out super soft and defined. It doesnt look like that in the pick because I used a pick to add more volume and therefore frizzed it up a bit What DIY hair masks do you love to use on your hair? #healthy_hair_journey #TeamNatural_ #kinkychicks #criola #berrycurly #dye2bnatural #kinkycoloredhair

pinkchocolatebreak When you're in Paqueta rent a bike or go on a guided tour and explore the island. It's small enough for you to discover in 3-4h including the stops you will make to take pics. The island works at a different pace and during low season it's very calm. For approx 10 eur you can rent a bike for a whole day #paquetaisland #paqueta #ilhadepaqueta 6d

Although a fresh start is scary and exciting at the same time, it always teaches you something new. You can prepare it all you want but it will always turn out different and the surprise is invigorating to my spirit and keeps me open to life. When I lived in Rio for 6 months in 2007 that’s exactly what I experienced and being in Rotterdam for so long now has left me feeling stagnant, bored and ‘set in my ways’. It’s not that I’m rigid but with age and a certain habit of things I approach things with too much ease instead of a beginner’s mind that doesn’t know anything and is fully open to the experience.
Which is why Shoshin (初心) a concept in Zen Buddhism appealed strongly to me. “Shoshin” means “beginner’s mind” and refers to having an attitude of openness, eagerness and lack of preconceptions when studying a subject, even when studying at an advanced level, just as a beginner in that subject would. And even though I pride myself as an eternal student of life I fell into the trap of adulthood. Children have a magical ability to enjoy every moment and be open to it whereas for me it became much less. #shoshin #beginnersmind #passportlife #minimalism #mindfulness

Happy Sunday darlings!
We would like to think that once we have more money on the bank we will feel rich and have more time to do what we want but feeling abundance in the current moment and being grateful for it preceeds manifesting what you want which is prosperity and feeling rich.
Because once you do get what you want, you will feel more of what you're feeling right now. If you're feeling poor or empty you will continue to feel that even if you have more money. So what can you be grateful for today which will make you feel rich right here, right now?

The fact that you have an abundance of time to enjoy a lazy Sunday? That you have a bed to sleep on and a roof over your head? (Seeing so many people sleep on the streets in Rio makes you feel grateful for that) or having enough money to do what you want today and having amazing friends and family around you to share it with?
There are always people with much less than what you have who would love to trade places with you in a second. Dont take your blessings for granted!! Because once they're not there you will realize how precious they were in the first place #feelrich #iamrich #gratitude #grateful #givethanks #namaste #bepositive #lawofattraction #thinkpositive #positivethinking #positivethoughts #positivewords #positivevibes #positivelife #positiveenergy #positivepeople #positivequotes #positivemind #positivequote #buddha #buddhism #yoga #mindfulness #mindful #meditation #namaste

pinkchocolatebreak When I want to get away from bustling Rio the Janeiro I take the ferry and in 1 hour it takes me to my peaceful oasis Paqueta island. From peaceful views to lush green parks, I can always recharge and get inspired in this magical place #ilhadepaqueta #paqueta #riodejaneiro #nevernottravelling 1w

pinkchocolatebreak Yesterday was a powerful night with a total solar eclipse, new moon in #pisces and equinox.
Know for sure now that Brazil is my spiritual school as I have been divinely guided during my journey. Was blessed to participate in a Divine Feminine ceremony where we came together for the purpose of healing, peace and love.

One of the Goddesses I feel immense love for is Iemanjá and Oxum. Both symbolize the water, feminine power and healing. Choosing a godess to connect with is one powerful way to connect the divinine feminine but if something doesnt feel right or you feel stuck try connecting with one or more of the 4 elements:

WATER: Iemanjà and Oxum both symbolize water and as a Pisces I feel at peace when things are flowing, am near the water, in touch with my emotions and am in my feminine.
Colors to use: blue, turquoise (my favorite color), green

AIR: connect with this element if you need to clear your thoughts, feel heavy or down and need to get clarity on things

Colors to use: white, grey, pastel blue

FIRE: if you're lacking motivation, need to be inspired, fueled with energy and take inspired actions connect with fire

Colors to use: red, yellow, orange

EARTH: if you want to ground, connect, marrie your light and your shadow, build solid foundations, grow and prosper connect with the earth. One thing to do is walk barefeet

Colors to use: green, brown, burgundy

One thing I noticed is that your astrological sign will guide you to what element is your key element, the one you need to give the most attention to for others to flourish. Listen to your body mind and spirit and continue to shine your light Tagging two fabulous fellow pisces I discovered recently on instagram @niaknowshair @aleshanokeys #iemanja #nature #oxum #goddess #naturewisdom
