Lo Siento

I wish English had a phrase like this…

‘Lo siento’ or ‘siento’

comes from the verb sentir (to feel or to sense)

It roughly translates to “I’m sorry” in English, but literally means, I feel or sense it. Can express regret as well.

I would much rather be able to say to someone hurting, “I feel you, my heart is with you, I sense your pain, and I regret the cause.” in one beautiful short meaningful phrase than our awkward, obligatory, and vague, “I’m sorry”.

We need a new word for that. Or we need to teach everyone Spanish.

I was at work lamenting my impending birthday when a young man came up behind me and said,

“Is it your birthday today?”

“Not yet sweetheart, in a couple of weeks”

“Well how old are you going to be?”

I sighed…”Well hon, I’m going to be 40″…more sighing

And he said (drum roll please) “You don’t look 40! You look like sunshine!”

Oh, out of the mouths of babes. And just like that, 40 meant something entirely different than mid life and thoughts of botox. Never mind the smile on his face that could have easily melted the sun itself, it occurred to me that he wasn’t being a show boat, he was serious. He did not see 40 when he looked at me. He saw sunshine.

He didn’t try to convince me I looked younger or advise me he thought I looked older, he cast the numbers aside entirely…

“For this exercise we must think of “God” as our Higher Self who only has our best interests at Heart and wants to see YOU succeed in all areas of Life on Earth. In other words, we have to KNOW that Self wants what’s best for Self and be able to put our Trust and Faith into this realization. From here, we can see that the drama of our trauma doesn’t have to be so dramatic after all as it’s leading us to the ultimate prize of release, letting go, or Acceptance (however you chose to look at it).”

We have entered a delicate emotional and spiritual space in our “evolution” and I’ve heard from many recently in regards to feeling like the deeper emotional issues are coming up AGAIN to be processed.  From here, many are re-Creating their own emotional “traumas” in an inadvertent way both individually and in the bigger societal picture.  The definition of trauma is a deeply distressing or disturbing experience and when this happens we usually find an emotional “snapshot” which may leave our perceptions of this moment at great odds with the “reality” that we may still be living and re-living this detrimental emotional experience.  Exhaustively enough, it is “here” that we will find a great Key of transcendence if we allow ourselves to look a little further withIN to release some of the deeper social, psychological, and spiritual “programming” from separation and judgement.  This is especially important when we feel separated from Self because…

Working toward things changes things. Constructive dialogue, collaboration and cooperation change things. That’s not just semantics. The energetic signature of something you are opposed to is completely different than something you actively support. One mindset traps the energy in regret, remorse and resistance. The other frees the energy to move in the direction you want to go.

I make no apologies for being a woman. 
We are fucking magic.

You move differently in the world when you know you are loved.  

You keep showing me where your heart’s at and one day soon I’m going to succumb to that great beast.
