Yin and Yang

Yin and Yang… the opposite but complementing energies…

We all have them both.

It’s naive to think otherwise.

The feminine vs the masculine, light vs dark, introspection vs action.

Key word: balance.

Whenever we say we want to surround ourselves of good energy and good vibrations because that’s what’s in line with the universe, we need to understand we are Human and not machines.

And humans are made of different vibrations in different moments.

No one is pure positive energy all the time. Everyone has a heavy dark side.

The thing is recognizing it and becoming self-aware.

Isn’t it the first step to deal with it?

Self-awareness will make you decide who you want to be… the bright or the dark? Self-awareness is when you begin to grasp that you can make a choice.

Allowing yourself to fall completely into darkness or allowing yourself to shine? Will you allow yourself to work on that balance and aim for it?

It’s not about eliminating the darkness.

It teaches you a lot about who you are in all your dimensions.

It’s part of who you are.

It’s about co-existing with it, minimizing it, it’s there but it doesn’t take over.

Because you’re in control.

How do you take control?

I began with self-awareness.

I knew I didn’t want to Be my dark side.

I didn’t want to be defined by it.

Then I aimed for Self-acceptance.

Then I worked on Self-love.

And eventually I found Self-respect.

Lots of “self” here. Does that make me selfish?


The truth is I spent too much time of my life giving all my love, all my attention to someone else.

I always gave the best of me to someone else.

That led to the annulment of Me.

I was weak thinking I was strong.

I worked a lot on myself.

I looked for help in order to succeed in doing so.

To reach the point in which I know who I am and what I want.

I now know my Higher Self, my own high authority knows better.

Instinct? Gut feeling? Choose your words.

Observe yourself.

How affected are you by tiny things?

Do they actually impact your life?

You’re bigger than that.

And stronger than you think.

You just need to make your way towards what you envision.

And just like Yin and Yang, allow yourself to not be framed into the standard dichotomy “good or bad”, but whole.

And I believe a whole Human Being is inherently Good at its essence. The rest is just loud background noise.

The idea behind this page is to share my opinion and experience in what seems to be a crazy world nowadays. I look at myself, my friends and acquaintances and hear so many different, yet similar stories… of our search for Love, disappointments, insights. I wanted to share them! Considering cultural differences some adjustments had to be made. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it!
