I always wondered how would be to do what I really love.
I grew up into a Brazilian family with lots of passion and sharing. I learned, since early age, that we need to share, everyone has the right to be free and live with integrity. My dad was an passionate activist and my mom was a loving amazing mom. Together, they taught us, me and my two sisters, how to fight for a better place - a place of love.
When I went to university, I remember my parents saying: "follow your heart. It doesn't matter what you do, we want you to be happy". So I did. With their support, I studied marketing and publicity and had the chance to work with brilliant and talented minds at amazing corporations.
But it wasn't enough. I was feeling restless. Deep inside I knew that I needed to try something different; take some risks.
So in 2002, I moved from Brazil to Vancouver, Canada, and my inward journey started: I was introduced to yoga and meditation; became Kundalini Yoga teacher and meditation teacher; traveled around the world seeking for answers and experiences; got involved with community projects; learned how to play gongs; started growing my own food (who knew) and fell in love with the place that I built within. I fell in love with my meditation practice: my passion, my refuge, my home.
During my meditations I always have my mala. Touching it, reminds me that the present moment is happening right now; takes me back to my intention, my goals - helping me to realign myself with my soul. Keeps myself on track.
I remember meeting a student who had designed her own mala and I became very curious about it.That same week, I had my mala broken so I decide to redesign my own too. It was fun. I could combine everything that I love: colours, stones, intention, mantras and meditation. I LOVED it. I loved the process, I loved the vibration, I loved the feeling inside.
So in March of 2015, I decided to open my own business and start designing unique 108 beads malas with awareness and love.
Every day, I sit quietly and allow myself to expand my awareness. I ask for guidance and let my fingers to find a mantra song from my ipod. Then the creativity flows. I design every single mala from scratch. They are one of a kind, unique and carry the highest vibration.
My hope is that your mala becomes your friend. A friend who reminds you about your abilities, your strengths, your intentions, your uniqueness. A friend who quietly allows you to experience your stillness, allows you to realign your mind with your heart.
Yes, I love what I do and I pray that you do too. When you do what you love, everything flows with grace and ease. You open your eyes and see the world in synchronicity with your intention. Coincidences happen all the time. You are intuitive because your mind is following your soul. You become an observer; you trust. You live the truth - you are in the state of Sat Nam.
