Hi beauties. I hope you enjoy this post on Empaths & the Empath / HSP Experience from my perspective.
Also, you can have a look at a past post I did on “What is an Empath + Suggested Reading for Empaths”:
Ok, so I feel like I thought of something super brilliant today ;)
My whole journey with my work, is absolutely to make Astrology relatable & practical. So, each time we have a lunation, I want to give you an exercise you can actually do to connect with that lunation or whatever is going on in the Cosmos. To ground it down into your life, make it real & take action. I don’t want to just tell you what it is, but rather, how to work with it to make you life incredible.
So, this coming Saturday we have a New Moon in Capricorn @ 5:28pm PST.
Cap is the go-get-em’ sign of diligence, responsibility & the proverbial slow & steady rise to the top (cue: I’M ALL THE WAY UP) To me, it’s always made great sense we would start our year off in this sign, from an energetic stand point it’s the perfect time to make goals, visions & put practical, tangible action to them. That is often why Capricorn energy is so accomplished according to the Zodiac, because, they don’t just dream things up, they actually ground them in purpose & go for it. Slow & Steady wins the race, is the Capricorn Mantra!
Combine with this New Year Energy + New Moon in Cap, I felt the below would be an excellent way to start your Journey.
- How to Design the Year & Life of Your Dreams in 3 Steps -
Do the below Visualization Meditation:
2. Journal: 5 things you want to experience in 2019 & 5 ways you want to feel
Write this down in red ink if you can, in a journal or notebook and let it be for a while. Re-visit it months down the line & see what’s come true for you, where you want to tweak your actions, feelings, etc. See how close you are to some of these experiences.
3. Create a Pinterest Board Vision Board, label it 2019 - add your dreams, visions, feelings, experiences, etc. in pictorial form to this board. When you do this be sure you are listening to your FAVE song…headphones preferred. Let yourself get lost in the excitement / imagery / beauty, of what you are putting together.
Download the Pinterest App to your phone, look at this in the morning after you Meditate, or if you are in line at the grocery store, etc. Just keep re-visiting these images, let them help you to feel inspired, hopeful, creative, excited about life & what is possible.
Do the above on the New Moon (1/5/19) or, in the days following it! Or really anytime ya want! Please let me know how you liked this exercise!
Trust the magic. ;)

Getting in flow with the Universe is actually EASY. It’s meant to be easy. Try these three simple steps anytime you feel your energy off kilter, you feel sad, down or in a life funk.
How to Get in Flow With The Universe in 3 Easy Steps
Smile - smiling raises our frequency, the Universe responds to frequency and vibration. If you are feeling down, be willing to sit with yourself for a moment, close your eyes, and let a smile move across your face. It may feel strange but it can shift your mood & energy almost instantly. Try this the next time you are feeling stuck or lonely.
Love Yourself, Love Your Body - We are spiritual beings having a human experience. Our body truly is our temple. When we ground & root ourselves in the body via exercise, movement & self-care, we raise our vibration. The Universe (in my opinion) as well as our Higher Self (our soul) deeply appreciates & honors us when we honor our bodies. Our physical vessels are sacred and they deserve love and respect. Our mood & energy instantly shifts when we are honoring our bodies with movement. Notice when you are consistent with loving yourself & moving your body, your whole perception of reality changes.
The Universe has an easier time getting into touch with you when you are feeling good in the totality of your physicality!
Get Present to the Moment - this is an exercise I have been utilizing with a lot of my clients lately. If you are feeling crappy, notice, notice that you are feeling down and a bit dampened. Take that as a signal from your soul that it needs you to get present to the moment, then try this:
touch something on your body, your clothing, your face, your hand, something to get you present to your body, your ability to feel textures & to connect to yourself
secondly, look around you and take in everything around you. what you’ll notice often times if you are existing, you are not present to the beautiful sounds, sights & energies all around you - take in every detail or everything, keep watch as the Universe reveals all the way it speaks with you. The Universe communicates to us most easily & readily when we are fully present to all that’s going on around us
third, take a deep breath in, notice smells, sensations as you orient yourself fully to the present moment.
Try these three steps consistently to feel the magical flow of being in touch & in tune with the Uni. When we remember how important our vibrational frequency is & keep in touch with Universal energy it really feels good, why? Because we are mind, body & spirit. Not just mind & body! These simply practices connect you to your soul quickly & easily. When we feel connected to our soul, we feel connected to the Universe & the Universe feels GOOD & MAGICAL!
Love you angels so much, I hope this helps!
love, Natalia xx

Ok so first off, I know I haven’t spoken with you much about sex, orgasms or sexual energy. But in truth, I am an Aries and sexual energy is my bench mark. My sign is Mars ruled aka, A LOT of sexual vibes. I believe in the power of pleasure as self care, self respect and a space to create what you want in your Universe.
Have you ever heard of manifesting with your orgasms?
Do you know the power of taking yourself to a place of no thought?
What is the (or, a) spiritual perspective on orgasm and pleasure as an incarnate woman?
And how to tie this with Astrology?: Each and every sign has their own unique way of expressing their sexuality & sensuality, uniquely, beautifully & powerfully, no one sign is more sexual than the other, just a nota bene! ;)
First off, what the F is up with manifesting with your orgasms? Is that seriously a thing? YES. Ok, so WHY?
First off, orgasm as a woman is a deep release (as it is for everybody;) it taps us into our essential nature, into our totality, our goddess/god self, our truth.
Pleasure, beauty & totality ARE OUR BASIC NATURE.
Why does the orgasm feel SO GOOD? Because it reminds us of WHAT WE ARE INNATELY: LOVE, POWER, BEAUTY, TOTALITY.
Manifesting is all about calling in what you want from a space of NO THOUGHT, meaning, you can’t think, control & call the shots, MAGIC is created when we are in a space of surrender.
Orgasm = the ultimate surrender.
Want to manifest something or call it into your experience? The next time you pleasure yourself, do it with ritual, with awareness and as you release, bring the vision of what it is you are calling in, into your inner mind. May sound strange, but try it, manifesting & creating magic are all about utilizing the mind as a tool, and doing so in total surrender…
Have you ever tried to send the world loving, peaceful energy when you come?
You should try it.
Being that we are all collective and connective energy, we can create the life we want as well as save the world with the big O. AMAZING RIGHT? We are so magical!
As women, we all have a powerful Venusian energy inherent to us.
She is our power place, she is our space of authenticity, feminine power & creative energy. She is our guiding force and as you know, I have been talking and teaching so much more on the power of Venus recently because just this year did I finally come to understand the power of the feminine, pleasure & surrender in my own life.
All this being said, I have something INCREDIBLY exciting to announce - the perfect space for you to practice your O manifesting as well as tapping into your VENUS ENERGY & SELF LOVE SELF CARE SELF HONORING ENERGY.
I was asked by the incredible all-women run, environmentally friendly & POWERHOUSE team of babes that is Bijoux Indiscrets to partner with them on their erotic chic collection Horoscope.
Horoscope is a collection of 12 unique pleasure kits custom created for each Zodiac sign including an earth friendly vibrator (meaning the contents utilized to create it are all vegan & non-harmful to the planet and your beautiful V), orgasm gel (with beautiful fragrances from vetiver to ginger, each custom created to suite the energy of each sign) + a gemstone necklace (custom created to honor each sign) so you can carry the energy of self love in your crystal wherever you go <3
Want to get yours? http://bit.ly/HoroscopePleasureKits
(I feel like these are the PERFECT Holiday gifts for either YOU or the Mystic in your Life <3)
Bijoux Indiscrets mission is to assist us to connect more deeply with our feminine freedom, our innate power and our exquisite ability to experience PLEASURE (the clitoris has over 8,000 nerve endings, it is literally created for PLEASURE)
As women when we know how to connect with what I like to call our pleasure principle, we are truly UNSTOPPABLE!
Furthermore, go explore your unique pleasure kit from Bijoux Indiscrets AND be sure to find out about your unique Venus sign, take that into account when picking your kit!
How does the Universe bring us more of what we want?
By acknowledging our greatness & our gratitudes.
I’ve really been exploring the energies of magnetism and receptivity lately. Like instead of nose to the grind stone, how about meditation with stones? :)
Why do we so rarely sit back and acknowledge all the work we have done?
Why do we expect ourselves to DO, DO & MORE DO, all the time?
Doing, action & forward movement are obviously paramount to an incredible life, but, we also truly need to practice the opposite side of the coin: receptivity and simply BEING.
We have to be poised to receive and the Universe can’t do that on our behalf if we’re thinking we need to be in constant motion at all times.
Here is a brief exercise i’d love for you to take a moment & try before the end of 2018.
Sit down where you won’t be disturbed for a moment.
Open up a document or get out a piece of blank paper.
And simply do this:
Write down everything you have achieved or experienced this year (that maybe you never thought you could or would do).
Points to keep in mind as you create your list:
Acknowledge your progress, talk to your soul & heart a moment, imagine ALL of the things you NEVER thought would happen, but did
Acknowledge the positive, empowering uplifting parts of your life
Acknowledge your Successes
Bask in this energy for a moment, really sit back and honor yourself
The reason this is also so powerful is, wherever there feel to be loop holes or empty spaces, you can begin to build your intentions for 2019!
Enjoy this process!
Feel into the power ONE YEAR CAN CREATE! Feel into the POWER OF YOU!
I am proud of you!
YAY. My most comprehensive GLOWING skin post, I think ever!
I get a lot of comments on my skin and complexion and as of late I have been discovering such incredible products.
I am getting older believe it or not (thank you Insta filters;) and i’ve really started investing love, energy & $$ into my skin regimen.
The Winter is so tough on our skin! Watch my full video above for ideas on hydrating, skin-lovin’, CLEAN products that are beautiful for you during these drying months as well as your skin!
I also talk about how beautiful clear skin is a 2-part process.

Ok, so yay!
I always love to see an extremely positive aspect happening in the Cosmos, even though
I ALSO DEEPLY BELIEVE, we create our lives, our destiny, our experience, our energy.
Let’s think of it as a co-creative dance with the Universe so we can become our highest & best selves! :)
Shit has been real as of late. Venus Retrograde was INTENSE and offered a lot of deep work and she traversed through Scorpio, most likely making a tight conjunction to many of your guys’ (and mine) Natal Pluto placements if you were born between 1983-1995 making it EXTRA INTENSE in terms of letting shit go.
Then we headed right into a Mercury Retrograde which can be mentally stimulating & communication-ally challenging, all at once.
And to top it off 2018 has been a year of deep spiritual work.
As is always the case in School EARTH. We are here to evolve, grow & reach our high potential all while learning self love, kindness towards humanity & the attempt to have FUN while living in a reality of contrast.
It’s a pretty tall f*cking order, but we signed up for it :) hehe
I wanted to make a quick little guide on this lovely energetic day of Sun Conjunct Jupiter which is a WELCOME THANK YOU from us to the Universe as the energy is LIGHT, EXPANSIVE & BEAUTIFUL.
Sun = our awareness, positive energy, light, ego, our vitality
Jupiter = expansion, abundance, luck, fortune, optimism
So imagine! Those two lovely heavenly bodies sharing energy today! What does that mean for you?
Well just like Natal Chart Astrology I like to take a look at inception points as momentary opportunities to make an energetic impression in your Life & the Universe’s dance with YOU! AKA - Start the below practices today in building a life worth expanding, fortune & all around positive f*cking energy!
How to Rule at LIFE in 7 Easy Steps (go 1-7 like building blocks)
Invest in the Health of your Body - our BODY is our foundation, exercise, yoga, dance, get movement in regularly. We open ourselves up to our power by first tapping into this basic truth: our body is our temple, literally!
Honor your need for Pleasure, Sensuality & Creativity - creativity is a basic need. We are creative beings, we need little bits of connection & expression all of the time to feel vital and alive. Sensual & Sexual expression is also paramount, so whether you are giving that to yourself regularly or are in a partnership, you get the idea ;) And the better we feel in our body, the easier it is to express this second step because we aren’t distracted by feeling weird in our body, ya feel me?
Create your Life Purpose no matter how big or small - being in our power feels super good. Feeling like we can be OURSELVES is even better. This is what creates true happiness & fulfillment. Create or find what fills you up and gets you EXCITED about existing.
LOVE YOURSELF & LOVE OTHERS - Kindness towards yourself is a constant practice, the more we can love ourselves even through mistakes or low moments we create an energetic resonance that calls this in throughout our entire lives. Let other people love you, ask for what you need, be willing to meet yourself on a deeper emotional level by letting yourself FEEL. The more rooted you feel in Step 1, 2 & 3 - the easier this all is.
Speak your Needs, Ask For What You Really Want - Self Expression is vital to a healthy, powerful life. Simply ask for what you need or express your heart. The more awakened you are in Step 4, the easier self expression can be.
Work on Opening your Intuition - The more in tune we feel with our intuitive nature the more complete we feel. I like to think of our intuition as also tapping into our feminine faculties, allow time with or near water to honor this part of ourselves, our receptive state where information & inspiration flows freely to us.
Meditate, Have Some Sort of Spiritual Practice - tune into your soul & heart every day in some way. Whether it’s meditation, mirror work, Tai Chi, Yoga, affirmations, chanting, the list could go on forever. Make time for the holistic part of you which is having a relationship to your Spirit which is an expression of your totality, your relationship to the Universal OverSoul, your heart, ancestors, angels, ETC.

“If you are willing to look at another person’s behavior toward you as a reflection of the state of their relationship with themselves rather than a statement about your value as a person, then you will, over a period of time cease to react at all.”
― Yogi Bhajan
Everything stated here is reflective of my own perspectives & experiences around love, heartbreak & human sexuality. I also figured being that this is Scorpio Season, and Scorpio rules the genitals and sex, this as a good time to traverse this topic.
I deeply believe we are spiritual beings having a human experience and we are here to connect with one another to learn, grow & evolve into the highest and most powerful expressions of who we are: through the light and the dark.
Every person you have ever experienced in your life, including the ones you are experiencing now, you have called towards yourself perfectly. In some way or another, they are there to mirror aspects of you for the sake of evolution and growth. Everything comes down to perspective and if we are willing to see every being, even the ones we can’t stomach, as some aspect of us.
I preface this because I think it’s a key component in understanding the deeper essence around sex and relationships.
The realm of sexuality and relationships with men have been my deepest teachers, often times with a lot of pain, confusion and suffering involved in the mix. But, I was always willing to take accountability on some part of the dynamic as well as, be responsible for my own happiness and growth. This attitude is how I sit with all of you today, taking on the study of the mystical, personal development, astrology, tarot, spirituality, etc. etc. etc. these things were all catalyzed for me because of the pain and confusion i’ve experienced from sex and relationships. Hence, there is perfect order in everything, even the darkest darkest, leads you, to your light.
Relationships are mirrors and teachers and that’s it.
They are there to show you parts of yourself that you don’t exactly have to face when you are cruising solo. They are also there for mutual enrichment, love, joy and comfort. Relationships are contracted before you even get here - they are soul bonds and soul recognition. When you feel like you know and understand someone on a deep level even when you don’t know them very well, chances are you do know them very well, just not from this incarnation.
Some relationships are energetically meant to remain in our lives for a very long time, some are only meant for a very short time. This is all dependent on the energy and contract inherent in the bond between two beings, not one’s worth or value.
When something doesn’t work out with someone, don’t look at it as a question of your worth or their worth, it’s energy and it’s contract. Be willing to look at it as, our time is or was complete for now, what did I learn? What was I able to give? What can I take away from this experience with this being? Can I wish them love, peace & respect?
If you are having trouble healing or moving past something, try EFT Tapping.
Now onto sex, I look at sex in an interesting way. Sex is our experience of higher energy, we are beings of energy and whenever we merge with another persons body, not only does it feel physically good, it’s also because on the energetic soul level, we are remembering what we are: totality, total and complete energy. This is why being human can be so challenging sometimes because we are here to experience ourselves not only as singular, but also, dualistically. Do you catch what I am saying here? Hence, sex and the merging of two energy fields feels amazing because in essence, it reminds us of what we are.
A tangible, practical, quick P.Cast (Podcast:) on living like an Empowered Bad Ass, Self Aware Queen by being aware & IN LOVE with your Menstrual Cycle!
Babes, this is such an important topic to me. I see so many of my clients, friends & of course myself, so at odd, in judgment when we aren't performing at 100% top of the mountain, kicking ass every damn day.
That just isn't fair.
Our bodies and our physiology are unique to what is expected from us in society, we are Cyclical Beings, we are ever changing.
We are meant to have highs & lows, we are meant to imbibe the feelings of life.
Our Cycle, our ability to create life & beauty from our bodies, is what enables this deeper wisdom and awareness. It's something simply to be understood and honored in stead of judged and rejected.
So it starts with us and I hope this Podcast Episode helps. Please share this with your sister friends, young gals, etc. This is how we bring body awareness and shift the paradigm around our bodies and our menstruation.
In this Episode:
+ How to Easily Honor the 4 Phases of your Cycle
+ Why Our Bodies are Different & Why this is A Blessing
+ Our Cycles in sync with the Moon
+ The Balance of our Masculine & Feminine - how to use this awareness to basically be unstoppable
+ How Honoring our Cycles makes us EMPOWERED instead of depleted & judgmental
+ and of course, join me for my Women's Course where I go deeper into this! The LIVE Course begins Oct. 9th, 2018 & the Digital Course goes live tomorrow!

WOW. WHAT A WEEK.
It's so interesting because, as an Astrologer there are definitely times where I can guesstimate that an upcoming week will be fluid, or challenging, well to be so honest and vulnerable, I had a hunch that leading up to this Full Moon could be full-on, but I didn't expect it to be as full-on as it was!
Full Moon's are always about releasing what doesn't serve. The aspects guiding us up to this very beautifully aspected Full Moon in Pisces gave me a hunch that it could be A LOT, but I got a little thrown off because the actual aspects of the Full Moon were SO LOVELY. #DUALITY
We learn to grow. We suffer to know what happiness is. If we didn't know pain, we wouldn't know lightness of being.
Pisces energy circumvents around the Soul. It guides us home to the compassion of Spirit, the Universe and understanding ourselves from a holistic, esoteric & all encompassing way.
This Full Moon opposes the very reality driven, in the moment energy of Sun in Virgo (which we just entered into on Thursday!) and whatever fell into disarray this week was guiding us home into the Truth of Surrender to the Universe, which is what Pisces is all about.
I read in this amazing book I have called "Moon Power" that the Goddess Sedna rules over a Moon in Pisces. You can call upon Sedna when you are hurting or feeling the pangs of life deeply, she is a very compassionate & strong Goddess and rules over this Lunation.
I want you to do what you'd like with the following rituals, make them your own, be creative,
you can't do it wrong when you are coming from the heart.
What You'll Need:
Your Favorite Crystals - Make sure they aren't water soluble! I suggest Rose Quartz, Crystal Quartz (if bathing during the day), Selenite & Turquoise
Bath Salts - For cleansing old energy
Flowers - Make your space beautiful, you can put the flowers in you bath water or around the tub
Candles - Light a candle or a few around the tub, obviously be careful with the flame! Make your bath ceremonial
Sage and/or Palo Santo - Cleanse yourself before you get in, and wave a bit of smoke over the tub. You can leave it to burn out while you are bathing
Beautiful Music or Mantras - I love any and all Kundalini Mantras. You can google "Kundalini Mantra for _____" really anything! Healing your Heart, Prosperity, Clearing Energy, etc.
While You're In the Tub - do a bit of meditating, pamper yourself, read poetry or a book, leave your phone far away or off for a bit, just sit with your essence and Be.
When You're Complete drain the bath rub while you are still in it, envision whatever no longer serves you gently and gracefully leaving with the bath water. Send love & gratitude for the lessons and the energy you have traversed and for the cleansing power of Water.
Meditation for Release & Call In:
* Please be careful lighting things on fire! *
What You'll Need:
A Piece of Paper & Pen
A Large Glass Bowl
Flowers, Candles, Crystals, Tarot Cards - anything to beautify your surroundings and make the space feel sacred.
What You'll Do:
Sit down in your quiet, beautiful space where you won't be disturbed for a bit.
Sage or Palo Santo yourself & your little sacred space before you begin your ritual.
First, call upon your angels or your favorite Ascended Masters - I invoked Mother Mary, Quan Yin & Arc Angel Michael to be with me during my ritual. You literally can't do this wrong, just call upon your spiritual team for assistance and love as you move through and release whatever it is you don't need any longer.
Meditate and do some deep breathing for 5-18 minutes.
When you come out of your Meditation, with the Glass Bowl in Front of you - write down 5 things you are releasing with this Full Moon energy. Read them out loud. Carefully burn it in the bowl and light some sage after. Say Thank You.
After that, write down 6 things you are calling in to replace those energies - make these positive statements. Put this little list on your altar, or somewhere you can see it until the next New Moon (which will be in Virgo:)
You are welcome to pull a Tarot card or cards and do a little contemplation and gratitude work before you end your Ritual.
I also encourage having a little loving conversation with yourself to end the Ritual. Say Thank You to your guides and angels for their love, guidance & support always.
Honor the Work You have Done and So It IS!
Beautiful work, love you!

Natalia's Book Spiritual Book Rec.'s:
1. The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield
This book began everything for me.. I haven't read it in over a decade, but the ideas & wisdom in this story began my spiritual journey.
2. Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsh
Second to Celestine Prophecy for me is Conversations with God. I remember reading two distinct parts of this book that literally catapulted my spiritual awakening when I was 19, no joke!!!!
3. Many Lives, Many Masters by Dr. Brian Weiss
If you know me, you know I am obsessed with Past Life Regression and past life wisdom in general.. I find it so incredibly empowering and fascinating to understand our souls are on this eternal journey together. Gives so much comfort.
4. Journey of Souls by Dr. Michael Newton
I read this book traveling through Europe, it's one of those books i've read probably 4x and given away every copy i've ever owned. This is an absolute must must must read, again brings so much comfort and illumination of the souls journey and the human experience.
5. The Alchemist by Paolo Coehlo
I have only listened to this in audio-book form and I re-listen every time I need to be reminded on the power, trust & faith it takes to walk a bigger path.
6. Shambhala - The Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chogyam Trungpa
This is a new book for me, but already i've wept 10x reading it. The reminders are paramount to living an intentional and peaceful life as a spiritual warrior.
7. You are a Bad Ass at Making Money by Jen Sciencero
This book is life changing. Jen has such an empowering and funny way talking about money, overcoming her own struggles in her finances as well as playing small in general. A must read, especially listen in audio form! Constant inspiration.
8. Secrets of a Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker
I have been reading this book off and on since I was about 24 and began my first business. As far as I am concerned it's one of the most spiritual books on this list.
9. The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need by Joanna Martine Woolfolk
Another new read for me -- but one of the most comprehensive and genius books on complete Astrology i've found thus far!
10. Love, Freedom, Aloneness by Osho
This book i've read off and on for many, many, many years. An empowering and interesting look in maintaining independence, strength and truly loving in intimate relationships. I've struggled with abandonment issues & co-dependency in the past and this book is definitely a tough but empowering read.
11. Men Don't Love Women Like You by G.L. Lambert
Another amazing book for Women - honoring our worth and feminine power within the realm of sexual relationships. My bestie Nikki turned me onto this- warning, it's very vulgar but it's hilarious. If you need a good kick in the ass to remember you are a fucking goddess, especially in relationships, then you should read this.
12. The Universe Has Your Back by Gabby Bernstein
My fave audiobook ever. I turn it on whenever I need a cosmic reminder because I know wherever it lands I am going to get incredibly inspired & a mega great download from Gabby!
13. Mala of the Heart - Edited by Ravi Nathwani & Kate Vogt
I almost burned my old house down (when living in Santa Monica...long story) and after 3 days of grieving I found this book of poems on the side of the street. No doubt God talking to me. Order this and be prepared to weep because it's so freaking beautiful.
14. The Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes
Another new read for me - but, this book inspires and empowers that we are creating are lives... insanely powerful and very intense, so be aware and maybe read the synopsis before you order. It's about 800+ pages.
15. Red Moon - Understanding & Using the Gifts of the Menstrual Cycle
As you guys know, I am going to be empowering you and myself to be more and more in flow with awareness of our menstrual cycles. This book catalyzed this journey for me, I haven't finished it but wanted to add it here anyway.
One of my favorite “New Age” books is Ruby Warrington’s “Material Girl, Mystical World”. Why? Because I love the concept of bringing esoteric wisdom into the modern world so that ALL of life can be enjoyed. The Material is truly not separated from the Spiritual- We are here to enjoy & I know that when we feel amazing in our physical vessel, we are honoring our Soul.
I also believe that glow is something that comes from within and that the human vessel is our vehicle for the soul’s expression.
Fashion, our skin, our makeup, the way we present ourselves, dress our spirit & present our essence to one another, should we choose to look at it that way.
I’ve been excited to share some of my glow secrets, Los Angeles beauty hacks & other fun “Material Girl” type suggestions! Not only that, I love promoting & supporting the incredible women I receive these services from. So here goes... ;)
1. Aries like their Brows Bold AF
Microblading w/ Angelina Mancinas
Ok, so Angelina is a Pisces. We met years ago on Facebook & she offered to do my makeup for a DJ gig that I had. Angelina is drop dead gorgeous & the kindest spirit you will ever meet. All that aside she this babe knows eyebrows.
She first started shaping my brows when threading was a major thing & then introduced me to microblading years later.
I am an Aries & there is one funny characteristic about many of us and that is we love a good, bold brow, mostly because we like to look fierce AF. lol.
I was experiencing some hormonal issues a few years back & the ends of my brows were beginning to thin. Angelina began to thread my brows and as my diet & health re-regulated everything has come back full force with the microblade shading giving me a beautiful shape & thickness I didn’t have before. Angelina is gentle & numbs the sh*t out of you before hand, but do know that the word “blade” is inherent in the term “microblading” so I would just suggest numbing for as long as possible & being sure to eat a full meal before. Angelina will take amazing care of you & your brows.

2. Healthy Hair is a MUST - Golden Locks are my version of having a halo ;)
Healthy Bleach Blonde from Sustainable Beauty Expert, Meleesa of Meleesa the Salon
Meleesa and I also found one another in a magical way. She is a Gemini and a GENIUS with hair. Meleesa is an expert with blondes and making sure that even though I make her take my naturally brown hair to WHITE WHITE BLONDE every time, she nails it and my hair remains healthy, growing & glowing!!
What I love about this babe and her space is:
1. It's a Sustainable Beauty Collective - meaning, Meleesa implements Eco-Friendly techniques into her Salon practice as well as utilizes the best quality / Earth-friendly products, dyes, etc.
2. The Vibes are epic - crystals everywhere. Every time I go in it feels like my time to just RELAX. I've put her Salon in Huntington Beach on my Insta Stories a few times as well as the space she creates out of in LA! So vital to be in a calming space, sometimes getting my hair done is my one moment of CHILL. lol
3. Meleesa being a Gemini is funny, wise and amazing to talk to.
Hair Routine x Products:
1. Meleesa suggested I use Vegan, Earth Friendly Line: Neuma !
I have issues often times with my hair being REALLY dry, kind of like a wild horse mane. I started using Neuma thanks to Meleesa & their deep hydrating blends x Violet Blonde Shampoo Treatment.
More Info on Meleesa & her Salon Here: https://www.meleesathesalon.com/
3. I'm not huge on getting creative with makeup, but after finding my babe Nikki DeRoest I get majorly creative while keeping it NATURAL
How magical is life? I really believe that we are brought everything & everyone we truly need at the perfect moment... no questions asked!
Nikki (a fellow Aries;) and I met at our gym bonding over wearing the exact same sports bra (another s/o Year of Ours), she looked like a Boss but was so kind and warm we became almost instant friends.
I started following Nikki only to figure out she is a GENIUS with makeup, styling & all things BEAUTY. Her Instagram is not only inspiring (with her amazing take on beauty hacks x her remarkable humor) but also incredibly informative. Her Instagram Stories will teach you ways and means to get creative with your beauty routine & feel beautiful from the inside out.
I love makeup because #colors, but, I never seem to know what to do with everything available on the market. Grateful I found Nik and can get inspired (and entertained:) by her on the daily.
My Makeup Routine: (Inspired by Nikki)
1. Clean, fresh skin!! (See my Glow Skin Hacks below...) - Nikki encourages healthy, glowing skin which we both agree on is an inside & outside job.
2. Glossier Boy Brow - to complete my mega brows by Angelina (lolz), I am obsessed with Glossier Boy Brow. Nikki has a few suggestions as well as a post on Growing your Brows on her Instagram (as of today!!)
3. Lancome Cils Booster XL - Lash Primer - this stuff is INSANE. In my opinion, it will make any mascara work like magic. Definitely worth a try.
4. Mascara - your choice. I use like 20 different ones & don't keep track!
5. A beautiful light eyeshadow, keep it natural! I actually stopped wearing liquid liner after following Nikki's posts - I love the look of brightening the eye & getting creative with a color & sparkles.
6. THE BEST LIP MOISTURIZER IN THE WORLD - Just literally.. you're welcome. I am not big on lipstick but I absolutely MUST have my lips moisturized or I don't feel right! Buy this right nowwww!: Emu Oil Lip Balm ($7)
Follow Nikki & check out her site:
4. Glowing Skin Hacks: My Bliss Skincare Routine x Healthy Diet & WATER.
I've talked about this before but I read Tarot for Bliss a few months back for their big re-launch event & was re-introduced to their products after always being obsessed with the Lemon Sage Bodywash that was once the trademark smell of The Standard Hotel.
I keep my skin routine incredibly simple & natural, and because my skin is so sensitive, I am really careful about what I use.
From their Makeup Melter Skin Cleanser, Micro Magic Exfoliating Scrub (I use this only 2-3x a week), INCREDIBLE Face Masks (I do 1x a week) & the Ex-glow-sion Moisturizer (that is somehow only $20) my skin has literally never been better. I attribute this to not only great products, but plenty of water, self-love, self-care & a diet of clean, organic foods & healthy fats, that say I LOVE YOU SELF. Our skin is our BIGGEST organ, which is such a trip to think about, it literally reflects back to us how we are treating it almost instantly.
Anyways, also back to the products! I suggest perusing their site and seeing what speaks to you!
My Skin Glow Routine:
1. Bliss Products listed above.
And thanks to my Aesthetician the incredible, Mia Belle Skin who I posted to my stories a few months back, who suggested that I only wash my face once in the evening or after a workout - this has changed my skin in a totally new way and all the extra oil and shine I had completely diminished.
2. Plenty of Sleep, Fresh Water (you will pee a lot which is a good sign!) & Meditation.
3. Bone Broth, Healthy Fats & Clean Organic Eating on the Daily!
Everyone has to find what works for them in terms of eating & nourishment. I've found what works for me and it reflects in the health of my skin, Menstrual cycle and overall vitality. If you are struggling with your skin or unsure which diet choices are best for you, I suggest finding a Holistic Nutritionist that you trust to help unravel the mystery with you. It's a journey worth embarking upon and one that I have been refining & exploring since I was about 18 years old!
5. Final Beauty Hack: Self Acceptance
Perhaps not what one would expect on a post on all things beauty hacking, but, being that I am a Spiritual Gal I feel this one is definitely worth touching on. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it truly freaking is. As someone who has delt with MANY issues around accepting my unique beauty, body and all of the things, I note this as my final beauty hack because, beauty really does resonate from the inside out. Have you ever met someone who although was not the cultural definition of what is "perfect" or "beautiful" - you found them incredibly attractive & sexy? This is because true beauty, resonates from the Soul. And especially from a soul at peace. Some people are considered the cultural standard of beauty but, they don't have that spark in their eyes that only can originate from One who knows & respects themselves on a deep, deep level.
So, have fun with this post, I definitely recommend you check out the babes & services I've suggested, but if you take nothing more from this simply remember to accept yourself.
Look yourself in the mirror and say I LOVE YOU, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, I ACCEPT YOU.
Watch your life change.
xx, Natalia <3

Ok, so something I have been talking a lot about lately is this funny / amazing routine called The Miracle Morning
I found it somewhat "randomly" on Audible for my drive to Arizona. I have done it a few times (before coming down with the flu) and I can honestly say it is LIFE CHANGING.
Taking space to get clear on our intentions & into the stillness of our heart is something that can allude when one has a crazy schedule. When do we make the time to work on our dreams or be good to our Soul? Enter: The Miracle Morning
I just talked a bit about this on my Instagram Live Segment. There is a massive Stellium of energy in pragmatic, "get shit done" Capricorn today and for the next few days, including a beautiful New Moon in Cap on January 16th, 2018 (6:17pm PST)
Here is what I suggest. Try the Miracle Morning one morning this week, I think it's an amazing way to capitalize on the potent Capricorn Vibes + New Moon Manifestation Magic.
Buy the book, listen to it in your car (if you're like me and don't take much time to read...)
To get started try the following as suggested by Hal Elrod.
The Miracle Morning:
1. Get up EARLY. It can be anytime, but enough to give yourself space and stillness before the busy-ness of life and the world gets in the way. I have been doing 5:45am.
2. Brush your teeth, drink a full glass of water. Get your energy moving so you don't get back into bed. Hal suggests reminding yourself via his affirmations (that come with the book / on his website) why you are getting up early and what kind of change you'd like to facilitate into your life & how getting up early helps with that.
3. He calls it SAVERS & you'll get started on your Miracle Morning doing the following:
S. Silence or Meditation - 10 minutes
A. Affirmations - Create your own. Whatever it is you'd like to call into your life. Make these positive Statements, and throw in extremely positive loving Statements about Yourself. - 10 minutes
V. Visualization - Go into Visualizing. To see it in your 3D World you've got to see it internally first. Everything is created from the Subconscious Mind. Have this space be an origin of peace and success in your life. - 10 minutes
E. Exercise - I like to do a quick Yoga Set or my own made up fitness sequence. - 10 minutes
R. Reading - Read a book that explores something you've been wanting to learn or grow upon. - - 10 minutes
S. Scribe (Writing or Journaling) - 10 minutes
If you can master your morning, you master your day, and then you master your life.
Happy Early Rising! Please let me know how this goes for you & be sure to purchase the book to get the full scoop!
TBH, I have never been much of a vitamin person. But I turned 30 this year and now i've become someone who likes & appreciates & does things that I never would have thought i'd EVER do in my younger years... (i.e. bone broth for breakfast, or just have a dinner of steamed bok choy as to not eat late in the evening, stange things like that...)
Health is wealth. I believe that more deeply now than anything.
Here are a few supplements I personally love & I want to share why they are so vital especially in busy, hectic, city-driven lives where our bodies & beings are being stressed out more than ever before.
Consider this an extension of my favorite holistic beauty hacks I posted a few months back!
Liver detox, huh? Yeah. The liver is our biggest organ and is (from what I hear...) one of the hardest working. I am not a big drinker, although I do enjoy my seldom glass of a beautiful rosé and sometimes am guilty of over-undulging in bulletproof coffee every morning... so enter Stage Right Liver Detox from Earthbar.
I recently became aware that if I was having trouble waking in the morning, an overworked liver (or one processing lots of caffeine & sugar) could be supplemented and supported! Also living in majorly polluted cities the liver also needs extra love. I live in the middle of West Hollywood & I can't imagine how much stuff I am breathing in & my body is processing out on the regular!
So off of that note the Super Immune Booster is my next favorite thing from Earthbar. The blend doesn't taste half bad and is INCREDIBLE in helping support & give lots of love to the immune system, which, just like the liver, is on overdrive especially in the winter.. in the city.. or let's just say, it's a dirty world out there!
Both of these supplements I take daily under the tounge & go double on the immune system blend if I feel something coming on.
I talked about Bear Journal in my last post. A beautiful bespoke supplement line based out of Australia. So if you can't tell, there's a lot of Immune System talk in the post - I blame this on two things: 1. I am an Aries & we don't like to be slowed down. 2. I am an Aries, & we don't like to be slowed down.
These pills are gorgeous, black & in a very sexy jar that looks nice everywhere in your house. I feel good & love taking the Protect Blend & know it works because I *never* get sick. (I also attribute that to Bone Broth & getting plenty of sleep.)
So, if you know you know. And if you don't know, now you do know: The Germ Warfare Shot from #Erewhon is BRUTAL. But! It will kick out ANYTHING that you have going on. I gargle it for 30 seconds, which could seem like suicide, but then I am right as rain. I would smell it first and then decide if you don't mind risking burning your vocal cords from all of the oregono & kyolic garlic in there.
I absolutely LOVED doing the personal survey to get my Care/Of Vitamin Packs and here is why- it felt like they actually *cared* about my well being and it truly allowed me to take an internal inventory of what I actually need when it comes to my own health & well being.
The vitamins come custom to you in a 30 day supply & very cute little packets that give you a random factoid or a sweet reminder. Mine today stated a quote that felt incredibly synchronistic...
"My favorite thing is to go where i've never been." - Diane Arbus
Care/Of actually makes vitamin taking very fun. I remember much easier mostly because they are so convenient // I am one of those people who loves Fortune Cookie messages & each packet kind of feels like that. ;)
5. Bone Broth
Bone Broth is the ultimate healer in my opinion. I have never seen my skin or immune system so healthy and glowey as I have since introducing this medicine of medicines into my life.
My favorites come from: Erewhon, Belcampo & there's a brand at Erewhon & The Vitamin Shoppe called Epic Homestyle - it's incredibly well priced & you can drink them at room temp. or cold if you are on the go.
6. Moondeli - Bliss Booster
this is my favorite for mood boosting & a bit of energy which is absolutely important when it becomes dark at 4:30pm every day in los angeles!!
morning time i throw this powder in a smoothie or in my favorite tonic (recipe i will list below!) the cacao & maca included in the blend are excellent for mood boosting & energy, as well as balancing the hormones. the cayenne is perfect for boosting circulation in the colder months + it's yummy and you can make it into a beautiful Adaptogenic Vegan Hot Cocoa !
- natalia's favorite morning tonic recipe -
gynostemma tea or dandelion root tea
califa farms almond / coconut milk
1 teaspoon bliss booster - moondeli
1 teaspoon energy tonic - moondeli
a bit of stevia
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 tablespoon of vanilla bone broth protein - by ancient nutrition
blend in blender & serve!
I hope all of these suggestions help! I am not a doctor but I am incredibly committed to staying healthy and honoring my body in the best ways.
Enjoy these supplements!
First off, I want to clear something up. Anyone, and I repeat, ANYONE, can be a mystic. This is a self-given title that I have fun utilizing because I so truly love the mystical components of the life journey. If you choose to study the deeper workings of the Universe and utilize the wisdom to help yourself become the most authentic and loving version of yourself, then, in my opinion, you are a Mystic. Even better if you utilize those tools to help others be the best version of themselves.
I am passionate about this part of life because the Mystical saved my life.
(*I want to share part of my old story with you here, and I hope that my expression of this old leg of my journey can assist you or someone you love move through addiction or depression of any kind.*)
A few years ago I was in a session with my old therapist, and I was having what could be considered a pretty massive breakthrough. I walked through my past with her: addictions of all kinds, workaholism, perfectionism, the most unhealthy relationship to my body and to life itself. I burst into tears when I remembered my turning point, of finally answering the call inside of me to get healthy and get aligned with my Spirit. This was the first moment I realized why I was so obsessed with mystical sh*t, because basically, it kept me alive and kicking on Planet Earth, instead of vacating, aka, exiting, checking out, or dying.
When I was 19 I started reading spiritual books and began to study art in college. I shifted away from my Marketing / Political Science degree and surrendered into my creativity and personal relationship with myself. It was some of the darkest years I remember because so much got dislodged from my subconscious and I had to face all of it, alone, living in California away from my family. And I was wayyyy too scared to ask for any kind of help (NOT a good idea, ever everyone!). The intensity of the emotions and the constant sadness gave way to addiction, and truthfully, after a year of disrespecting my Being on every level, I had a crazy thing happen one night that looking back on it changed my life forever and started me on my path with the Mystical.
Since I was young, I'd always had a crazy connection to horses. My family moved to an equestrian neighborhood in Arizona and I began horse riding lessons immediately. I was a really happy kid until about age 8 when I started to get extremely self-conscious. Horseback riding and being in the desert with those sacred creatures was medicinal for me. It still is.
So fast forward many years- I found myself on a bender with my then LA party crew, nearly having heart palpitations from doing some really bad cocaine. We somehow ended up at a friends horse stable (don’t even ask, b/c if you’ve partied before you know how those nights can go...) and there I was walking around, searching for water, dying inside.
But I wasn’t physically dying from what I could feel, I was dying spiritually. I was exhausted and completely lost. And in that state of high, I realized how sick I was, not physically, but mentally, emotionally and most importantly, spiritually.
I truly hit rock bottom right there. And before I did, I stood before a stable (still in search of water), where the most majestic black horse stood. It looked back at me, caught my gaze, and whether it was the drugs or me, I literally heard something in me ask the question,
“What are you doing with your life?”
I felt embarrassed and small in the presence of Mother Nature and I knew that I had to change fast or I was going to ruin my life.
Why share all of this? Well number 1, it is EXTREMELY vulnerable for me to share this story, not only to risk sounding slightly insane but also because, no one really knows about that chapter of my life. But what I learned most of all from that faited chapter is this: ALL WAYS OF DARKNESS LEADS US BACK TO THE LIGHT.
The next morning when I woke up, I first chose to forgive myself for everything I had been putting myself through and I decided to make a massive change. I won’t go through the last 8 years with you, but I will say that that day, was truly the first day of my journey with the mystical and coming home into the beauty of Myself.
The mystical to me is having a deeper relationship with life and finding our self-worth and power from within. We are raised to think that everything and everyone outside of us define our value. We have been conditioned to that idea since we were very young.
For me, journeying into the mystical gave me an anchor to explore life on my own terms. It gave me tools to begin to define myself and most importantly, to enjoy my time alone with myself.
If we want to find our purpose, we have to know how to be alone. We have to know how to sustain from the inside out to truly be powerful and effective with life.
I share this story in hopes that it can assist, especially anyone going through darkness of their own.
