It was during a spiritual journey to Brazil to the magical land of Abadiania, at the end of 2010, that she found out that writing is her life purpose.
Everything in life happens for a reason. That reason is to help us growth, to make us happy. As soon as we understand this, we understand the Universe’s language made up of small or big events we usually put down to coincidence or luck but what I’d rather call synchronicities. You know, being at the right time, in the right place, with the right person.
When she is not imagining things, she enjoys dancing, doing sports (skiing, skating and kick box aerobics), taking long walks, reading, listening to the music and being outdoors. She shares her flat with the lovely Oona The Yorkie.
As many spiritual teachers say, the human being is a harmonious combination; maybe the most harmonious that ever existed between spirit and matter. Let’s not forget that in our daily busy lives.
