Love House Rules

 

Most men are not even comfortable enough in their own masculinity to wear jewelry. This one believes you need to be balanced in both your male and female energy to be powerful.

It’s not very often that a very manly, confident, and fearless titan comes into my life who inspires my creativity and awakens my soul. And he did exactly those things! My life is no longer the same since my short exchanges with him. Even though our time together was brief because I was leaving for my annual Goddess retreat in the Mediterranean, but every moment I spent with him was well worth it! He challenged me in mind, body, and spirit, especially from a very male perspective. Each time together with him was full of learning and discovering magical and unexpected life surprises. It was fun, creative, spiritually uplifting and thought-provoking. I felt safe, respected, understood, and protected when he was with me. We read each other’s minds on so many levels. He was a fast learner and could keep up with me and adapt to unexpected changes so effortlessly. Perhaps it was because of his athletic background or perhaps God created a real man in him to set an example for all the other men to follow? I don’t know and I will not guess, but all I can say is that it felt like I was with my masculine self.

He taught me so many life lessons without even knowing it. I do believe that he was an angel sent from heaven to help heal me of my emotional wounds, know my self-worth, and to never again settle for any man who is less than my emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual equal. He forced me to go within and look at all of the men in my life through a sharper lens, from family members to friends and lovers. What I discovered is that most of the men in my life currently are simply not strong enough for me emotionally and perhaps even physically, with one or two exceptions. 🙂

Looking back, I would often lower my vibration, tone down my passionate nature and creative self-expression just to match the men I was with. But no more, I assure you. I am so clear of the man I want to be with in the future, and the men I want to surround myself with in the now. No more conservative and uptight ones who on the outside appear strong, yet are so emotionally weak and insecure on the inside that I am left feeling unsafe and unprotected when I am with them. Who is to blame for that but my very own self? I can’t believe it took me 46 years to figure this out (late bloomer, I guess…)

Tonight as I was doing my domesticated goddess arts at home, he came into my mind and it inspired me to polish and refine my tu-anh Love House Rules below for all those who are fortunate enough to be invited over. Please feel free to contribute to my list. I hope wherever this special manliness of a soul and God’s gift to women is that he knows I appreciate and respect him deeply. I am forever grateful to him for transforming my life and awakening my divine feminine with his existence. I am sending love and light his way. I will pray for him to always be his best and most powerful self as our world needs his masculine strength! Stay tuned for more inspirational posts to come inspired by my handsome manly Greek Titan teacher and healer!

P.S. Some of you may be thinking perhaps he and I were intimately or romantically involved. The answer is no. He was my titan muse, my angel protector, my inner strength, and my soul teacher! Perhaps one day…time will tell (smiles)

Longest Living Sleeping Chihuahua

Nini sleeping in the car during rush hour traffic to work with me.

While Megabyte (what a name!) might be the longest-living Chihuahua officially on record, I think my beloved Nini could definitely beat that record.  Nini is my spiritual animal, and the longest, most loyal, dedicated relationship I have had in my life, second to the one with my parents.  I attribute her longevity not just to the usual things – lots of love and high-quality, clean food, not to mention that I cook real delicious human food for her as well – but also to her surroundings and lifestyle.  What are her secrets for such longevity?  Below are just a few.

  1. Comfort Luxury: If she is not sleeping with me in my comfortable bed, then she is sleeping somewhere in her own little chihuahua luxury. This is important for napping and resting (of which she does daily and almost too much), and also for her joints.  She loves nothing more than circling around and curling up in her beds, and she is just the cutest ever!
  2. Beautiful Surroundings: Just like her goddess mistress, she likes her place of rest to be clean, simple, zen, and free from clutter with pretty plants and flowers. That is why she is so calm and never stressed or anxious like other dogs I have been around.
  3. Classical Music: I love all kinds of music, but what I listen to most often at work and at home in the background is classical or beautiful New Age and World Jazz playing in the background.  And if Nini is around me, she always gets the pleasure of that, too. It keeps me calm and at peace.
  4. Aromatherapy for a sense of zen: I am a lover of all things natural and created by God and Mother Nature. I try my best to live as clean and free from chemicals and dirty polluted air as possible. I am also very sensitive to unpleasant smells. So I love using essential oils to keep my work and home smelling luxurious and heavenly while healing and giving balance to my chakras, as well as harmonizing and promoting good health for my body, mind, and spirit.  Nini is blessed to be experiencing this along with me.
  5. Children Love: You already know I love children because they are such beautiful and pure little angelic souls, and they are so uplifting to be around. Besides, children keep us young and on our toes. Nini loves affection and is surrounded by adorable sweet children daily when I take her for her walks. The little children in the park always run up and ask me if they can hold her, touch her, pet her, give her kisses and rub her soft and voluptuous body. It is as though she gets free massages daily and it is not always from me. 🙂
  6. Goddess Pet Bath Luxuries: Lastly, once a week, I give Nini a relaxing and soul awakening bath with my body luxury products made from natural flowers, herbs, and oils which are good for both humans and animals alike!

I believe any of these are things that you, too, can do to live a long and zen life.  Why not take some time out for a luxurious bath and some aromatherapy one evening?  Nini would join you if she could. 🙂

When it is cold out, Nini refuses to walk. I often have to carry her 🙂
