sarashermis Everywhere we've gone this weekend it seems like people ask if we're sisters. It makes us laugh to respond saying: "soul sisters." I love the idea of soul sisters or soul friends, and maybe even the idea that soul mates exist too. It reminds me of shattered glass from a broken mirror, each piece so unique, but a reflection of the same. I think you just know when you meet a person you can connect with on a deeper level, a soul level. I was once told that maybe you only meet a handful of these people in a lifetime. I don't know if I believe that, but I do know that soul connections are ones worth keeping 2w

sarashermis On letting go: As I walk on the sand, I look back watching my footprints being washed over by the glistening salt water. When the shoreline recedes again, it reveals barely visible prints. Like a hunter, the ocean preys on grains of sand each time it crawls in, but what it actually takes is much more: it takes the sands of my existence, evidence of the path I took leading me to where I am. Imagine if I cared that my prints were being cleared away. Imagine if I tried to fight the ocean, to protect where I was while standing where I am. Weighted like a heavy footprint, we often let experiences shape our experiences continuing on. But, what the ocean tells us is that we can make it lighter; some grains of sand need to be washed away. The ocean, always reaching out to meet, beckons me closer to recognize the sign: "Don't look back." There is no use attaching to what was, for that is not what actually is. 3w

sarashermis You know how you can go someplace a million times and then go there and be reminded of one time? I feel like I'm walking through history, while about to do something new. I've been snorkeling, but never at la jolla shores. Thought I'd give it a try before work. Wish me luck I forgot a towel 3w

sarashermis I'm a Sagittarius, a fire sign. My rising moon is Leo, and my sun-sign is Aries, both fire signs too. I do feel like the element of fire is everything that I am. I believe this is why my experience near the ocean is so right: water makes me feel balance. I crave passion in life because that is what ignites me. And of all the colors, the color red affects me most: it makes me feel fatally invincible; almost as if I become a different version of myself when I wear it. Yet, this fire I feel has never driven me to be competitive with others. Actually, if I feel someone doing that I'll distance myself; I power my own inner calling alone, while admiring those who inspire me. It has also never lead me to burn bridges, at least not by my choice: all relationships present challenges, and when that challenge comes and it is asked that we take a closer look at ourselves, I do because I see how doing this serves me in the long run. Any relationship challenge is usually a reflection of something in ourselves we are not yet ready to face. I do have fears, and I am not shy about sharing where I can improve FOR THE REASON that this creates a rising challenge for me alone to answer to. In effect, I am asking myself IF I CAN. That's fire, baby. The thing you should know about fiery souls, is that they care about the people they care about with the same fire and passion that fuels them, and will elicit it to preserve those relationships too. This makes them warm and enticing to be around. But, as the good saying forewarns: if you can't take the heat, best not to play with fire. 4w

sarashermis I know I take a lot of sunset photos. I know I also talk about them a lot, even in person. Like if you sunset-talk geek-out with me as we watch a sunset together, I'll want to be your best friend. I love noticing something beautiful, and I like to be around people who do too.

Sometimes I feel crazy for the things I notice, but at other times I feel it is a gift. A reason why I love sunsets so much, is because I can sense the way time feels while in the present moment. But also, they make me feel beyond grateful: to be alive, to witness the atmosphere change as the shimmering sun kisses everything-- all worthy of being touched by beauty. Watching a sunset reminds me of how small I am in comparison to all that is, and that makes me smile too.

sarashermis I am missing my CR yogis already! Yesterday was my first day back in SD and I've been sick in bed with 103 fever. Who wants to bring me soup and a hug? 1mon

sarashermis This last month has been long, and at the same time very short. I've met incredible people, all teachers, each offering a unique and valuable perspective. This chapter is complete, and my story will be forever changed because of it. One thing I'll always take with me is the belief that I'm going to make it following my dreams. And I have many. It will take time that will pass by anyway, but I just choose not to give up. It reminds me of my childhood beliefs: I loved The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella; all those stories made me believe in a sort of magic, goodness, deserved happiness. But, somewhere along the line, those beliefs somehow fade away into adulthood. Why do we let that happen? Why do we let experiences harden us? What happens if you choose to believe you deserve to feel beautiful on the inside like they do in fairytales? I believe we all deserve it. This path I'm on makes me feel more beautiful than I've ever felt. There's no turning back. Thanks for the fairytale, Costa Rica, you certainly have been my very favorite one. 1mon
