In Mexico, each town, each region, has its traditions, its uses and customs. Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a time of celebration.

During the festival, families and communities gather to honour those who passed on and embarked on their spiritual paths.

Powerful Reasons To Consider A Lifestyle Business After Retirement

They might consider using their work experience and start a new opportunity, but would a lifestyle business be what they truly want?

I always like the idea of having my own business, the problem was, I had no idea what kind of business was the best option for me.

A True Story of Manifestation

When Dreams Manifest

 How do you determine what you want to manifest? Is it possible to reveal anything you want once you have created it in your mind?   Are you aware that when you are working on manifesting your dreams, obstacles and challenges will arise? 

My story began when I was young; I didn’t know anything about the Law of Attraction. But I distinctly remember that from a very young age I wanted to explore different cultures, in particular, England.

In Mexico, where I was born, we have a great appreciation for the British people,  their customs, traditions plus we are fond of their accent. Continue reading “A True Story of Manifestation”
