La Rebocería

Por eso es tan valioso el arte popular, por qué cada rebozo está hecha con mucho amor.



Algunos de los tradicionales bordados indígenas ❤️🇲🇽

"Abuela, ¿cómo se afronta el dolor?"
"Con las manos, cariño. Si lo haces con la mente en lugar de aliviar el dolor, este se endurece aún más".
"¿Con las manos abuela?"
"Sí. Nuestras manos son las antenas de nuestra alma. Si las mueves tejiendo, cocinando, pintando, jugando o hundiéndolas en la tierra, envías señales de cuidado a la parte más profunda de ti. Y tu alma se ilumina porque le estás prestando atención. Entonces las señales del dolor ya no serán necesarias".
"¿Las manos son realmente tan importantes?"
"Sí, hija mía. Piensa en los bebés: comienzan a conocer el mundo gracias al toque de sus pequeñas manos. Si miras las manos de los viejos, te cuentan más sobre su vida que cualquier otra parte del cuerpo. Todo lo que se hace a mano se dice que está hecho con el corazón. Porque es realmente así: las manos y el corazón están conectados. Los masajistas lo saben bien: cuando tocan el cuerpo de otra persona con sus manos crean una conexión profunda. Es precisamente a partir de esta conexión que llega la curación. Piense en los amantes: cuando se tocan las manos, hacen el amor de una manera más sublime".
"Mis manos abuela ... ¡cuánto tiempo no las he usado así!"
"Muévelas, mi amor, comienza a crear con ellas y todo dentro de ti se moverá. El dolor no pasará. Y en cambio loaue hagas con ellas se convertirá en la obra maestra más hermosa. Y ya no dolerá más. Porque habrás sido capaz de transformar su esencia".

Oh hi there colonial mentality.

I often have to remind the courageous, beautiful souls I guide that healing is sacred and that we must honor our journey.

Of course, this makes sense on an intellectual level but then that sense of urgency creeps back up. And I want to educate you all and remind you that this is another way that the colonial capitalist patriarchy shows up in our daily lives.

Interesting isn’t it? That sense of urgency, that need of wanting your spiritual decolonial healing journey to be “perfect” , it’s all a byproduct of the colonial capitalist patriarchy.

I want to remind you my loves, to have compassion for where you are in your journey. You don’t have to feel like your healing has to be “productive.” Because this then becomes a block to the sacred process. Honor where you are dear one.

This is why I no longer work as a psychologist, it just didn’t resonate with me anymore , it felt too forced, it put healing in a colonial box. I believe in therapy and in therapists, my close friends are some of them & I respect them & their work, beautiful healing happens in their work with folx. But for ME, it just didn’t align & for some of you it won’t either and that’s ok, healing comes in many forms.

I also don’t resonate with being a coach anymore. I cringe now when I hear that word & again I have friends that are coaches and do great work with folk & facilitate healing. But for me, it feels forced. Like it’s a rush to do something quickly & meet all these goals. That’s colonial.

I’m saying this not to judge or shame because we’re all different & we have different needs & have different ways to heal & none are better than others. I’m just saying this for us to allow folx to heal on their terms, to bring back the sacred, our Indigenous ways to the healing process. You know ?

Allow your healing to unfold love, it should feel like flow not force. It should feel like a journey not a race. Settle into your sacred spirit dear one.

How does this feel?

If you’re needing healing & connection to the spiritual realm, I invite you to join my distance energy healing in link in bio, portal closes In 2 days & it’s the last one for a while. Love y'all💖 04/15/2020

Curanderismo, the Healing Art of Mexico

“Over the course of the millennia, all these multitudes of ancestors, generation upon generation, have come down to this moment in time — to give birth to you. There has never been, nor will ever be, another like you. You have been given a tremendous responsibility. You carry the hopes and dreams of all those who have gone before. Hopes and dreams for a better world. What will you do with your time on this Earth? How will you contribute to the ongoing story of humankind?”
— Laurence Overmire, The One Idea That Saves The World
A Call to Conscience and A Call to Action

"Tras el transcurso de los milenios, todas las multitudes de los ancestros, generación tras generación, han llegado hasta éste momento en el tiempo para dar luz a usted. Nunca ha sido, ni habrá jamás, otro como usted. Le han otorgado una tremenda responsabilidad. Lleva en si las esperanzas y las ilusiones de todos los Antepasados. Las esperanzas y los sueños para un mundo mejor. ¿Qué va a hacer con sú tiempo en esta tierra? ¿Cómo va a contribuir a la historia continua de la humanidad?"

“To unfold our lives as if they were a rebozo...
revealing its inner colors,
the richness of its texture,
the strength of its weave,
the history of its making."
—Sandra Cisneros: Mujeres del Rebozo Rojo (Women of the Red Shawl)

"Our rebozos (Indigenous shawls) are woven with prayers, dreams, tears, and hopes... every thread preserving ancestral cosmology and ageless maternal nurturance and protection. Pressed against our heart, our babies are wrapped in love and sleep within the symbols of the sacred womb of the universe. The feathers of the hummingbird and the quetzal have been replaced by swaying fringe, yet we can still feel their medicine as the rebozo wraps around our shoulders. They are the arms of the Grandmothers' embrace that hold and shield us."—Grace Alvarez Sesma

How Cultures Protect the New Mother

Another reason why culture and traditions are so important. What can we learn from the cultural postpartum rituals of low-income, developing countries?


Get a chance to listen to me and other awesome speakers in this mama care summit. We will be talking about self care during the prenatal period. 11/09/2017

A Latina Mama Wonders if She Belongs in the Warrior Mom Community | Postpartum Progress

"Research studies have determined that Latinas are 37% more likely to suffer from Postpartum Depression than other groups"

In most Latinx traditions you have a family member stay with you for at least a month if not the whole cuarentena after baby. As some of our traditions are lost so are the ways we care and heal ourselves. Which is why it's so important for me to promote Mexican traditional medicine. As she didn't receive an official diagnosis, this mama isn't sure she belongs in the Warrior Mom Community. But she does. 01/21/2016

Why We All Need to Touch and Be Touched

I often have clients say "you always know exactly where the knots are" or "how did you know I was feeling that way". No, I'm not magic (Although my business name/clients might say different). The mind body connection is a lot closer than you think. Receiving regular bodywork can be like a mental download or clearing. Massage can help with the release of hormones that helps make that emotional shift.

"Body-oriented approaches (like massage) are based on a principle that is becoming more obvious to researchers. Ken Wilbur wrote in The Spectrum of Consciousness , "For every mental 'problem' or 'knot', there is a corresponding bodily 'knot', and vice versa since, in fact, the body and the mind are not two. That is, psychic conflict, guilt, shame, unresolved grief all can be lodged in the body as body memories, and when the site of the psychic difficulty is deeply touched through massage or other manipulation, it can not only release the physical pain but may make the psychic pain accessible." Our mind, brain, and body are not separate from each other.

[11/19/15]   This is a wonderful event on Rebozo Therapy that one of the elders from Mexico will be offering here in Austin. The cost is $125. The event will be on Dec 5 & 6 from 1-5 at Casa de Luz. Please email Iris at [email protected] to register.

Hope to see you there!

What is Reiki?

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.


It's the little things....
