From the mountains of Italy to the streets of S. Florida

Dinner at Eco

It is hard to believe that four months have passed since I arrived at Damanhur. What they say is true, time operates on a completely different plane here. What takes months to accomplish normally, is achieved in only days. Amazing! As I look out across the vineyards of my nucleo home Eco and out into the mountains of Northern Italy, I am reflecting on the topsy-turvy path that has brought me here. I know now that had I arrived in Damanhur any sooner, I would not have been ready to live this experience. Every lesson was necessary; every moment treasured. Thank you Universe, Higher Self, Friends, Family and Guardians for guiding my path.

In Damanhur, I have found a physical spiritual toolbox for all my individual personalities:
yvette with flames
  • Daily Magick and Ritual to reawaken the divine spark in each one of us
  • A desire to research and discover personal Spiritual Tools to navigate daily life
  • Community Living that creates familial bonds which include blood-ties and friendship
  • Sustainability and Artistry in Action
  • Wide network of friendships and work models that allow me to embody the rocker, teacher, healer, artist, student, trancer, performer, technology geek, bridge-builder, etc. in ME!

A wave of apology to all the people that have reached out to me for help in the last few months. Adjusting to my new schedule has taken quite a bit of maneuvering. Being far from a big city and in the mountains, the network connection is not always up to par, which has prevented me from doing online courses and healings. Until things change, I can only offer email support, which I personally think is better. With email support, you get a weekly checkin plus the ability to ask all your questions when they come to mind. I have also started writing again, so expect more from Inspirations from Binah!

In the spirit of full immersion reconnection, I am super excited to announce that I will be returning to S. Florida the last two weeks of November. What started off as a family trip, has of course expanded into a teaching and sharing  opportunity. Ada Novak recently opened the Laya Center in Davie, Florida and has asked me to give a presentation on Living Consciously:

Self-sufficient energy

Abundance sometimes takes a little while to balance, but that seems like a good problem to have. Slowly life finds a new rhythm and I am happily navigating every new challenge and discovery. It is an privilege to share all that life has shown me… I am here to serve.

Blessings of loving light!

Gratitude – Agradecimiento – Gratitudine

Pizza birthday party for IguanaEnglish first… después español… poi italiano

There are moments in life where everything stops, giving you chance to look around and reflect on what is happening. Tonight, I had one of those moments. In the midst of chatter and laughter, I was able to freeze the scene and take a good look at my life. The consensus… I am truly blessed. Thank you Universe for presenting before me the opportunity to live a life rich with love, friendship, family and sharing. I have worked non-stop almost 10 years to become the person I am today, reading carefully the signs to ensure that I transformed that which does not serve me… and it worked! Surrounded by my nucleo family, after an afternoon filled with music, dancing, love, sharing, honesty, tears, and laughter, my heart burst wide open as I realized that I have reached a new level of personal, life success. I bow down in deep gratitude for all that are walking this path with me. From all corners of this beautiful Earth and beyond, I feel and send love and joy. Thank you, thank you, thank you…



Hay momentos en la vida cuándo todo para y tienes la oportunidad de mirar a tu alrededor y reflexionar. Esta noche, tuve uno de esos momentos. En el medio del parloteo y la risa, congelé el momento y miré claramente mi vida. El resultado … estoy verdaderamente bendecida.  Gracias Universo por darme la oportunidad de vivir una vida llena de amor, amistad, familia y la habilidad de compartir. He trabajado sin parar casi 10 años para convertirme en la persona que soy hoy, leyendo con cuidado los letreros para estar segura que transformo lo que no me sirve… ¡y ha funcionado! Rodeada de mi familia de nucleo, después de una tarde llena de música, baile, amor, compartiendo, honestidad, lagrimas y risa, mi corazón ha reventado de la realización de que he llegado a un nuevo nivelo de éxito personal en mi vida. Hago reverencia para señalar mi agradecimiento profundo por todos los que están caminando en este camino conmigo. De todas partes de esta Tierra bella y más allá, siento y envío amor y alegría. Gracias, gracias, gracias…



Ci sono momenti nella vita in cui tutto si ferma, dandovi la possibilità di guardarsi intorno e riflettere su ciò che sta accadendo. Questa sera, ho avuto uno di quei momenti. Nel mezzo di chiacchiere e risate, sono stato in grado di congeralre la scena e prendere una buona occiata alla mia vita. Il consenso … sono veramente benedetta. Grazie Universo per la presentazione davanti a me, dell’opportunità di viviere una vita ricca di amore, l’amicizia, la famiglia e la condivisione. Ho lavorato non-stop di quasi 10 anni per diventare la persona che sono oggi, leggendo con attenzione le indicazioni per assicurare che ho transformato quello che non mi servono … e ha funzionato! Con la mia famiglia nucleo intorno, dopo un pomeriggio pieno di musica, danza, amore, condivisione, onestà, lacrime e risate, il mio cuore ha scoppiato come mi sono reso conto che ho raggiunto un nuovo livello personale di successo nella mia vita. Mi inchino in segno di gratitudine profondo per tutto ciò che stanno camminando con me in questo percorso. Da ogni angolo di questa Terra bella e oltre, mi sento e invio amore e gioia. Grazie, grazie, grazie ….

Unexpected bliss
in late night expression.
Bouncy glee hard to contain.
Links to the past
connect in the present.
A new level reached.
Divine sparks attracted
across a sea of darkness
finding union in the exchange.
Singing, dancing…
Full body movement
touches the heart and spirit.
I bow low to the musical masters.


Alone does not have to be lonely

August 15, 2011

Inside looking out

Inside looking out

It feels like forever since I have taken a day to sit alone and stare out into the world without being an active participant. Funny how life cycles through different phases. There was a time when I could not stand to be alone, always looking for someone to share space with. Then I moved into a solitary period that required hours of “me” time. Now I am in a comfortable hybrid mode — flowing freely in and out of a large circle of loved ones.

I have always been an action-oriented person. I believe in doing, not just thinking about things. When I was younger, this manifested in a very judgmental way. I couldn’t understand people that just sat there talking without doing. Then again, I also couldn’t understand people that acted without thinking about the implications of what they were doing. I spent many years frustrated because no one could live up to my expectations, including myself.

One day I realized that it was not the people that were wrong, it was *me*. I saw that in my world of ACTION I was not taking any time to understand why others acted differently. As I looked around, I found people that could accept the behavior of others, even if it was not something they liked. I wanted to find this acceptance — this ability to create solutions, not just see problems — but this was going to require something I didn’t know how to do: I needed to find and accept the true ME.

Who am I? What am I? What am I here to do? Burning questions that needed to be answered, for it is only when you know yourself that you can begin to understand others. When you are confident in your own abilities, you can see how others provide complimentary skills, therefore building a better team. I had a desperate desire to learn how to be comfortable in my own skin, to sit and listen to my thoughts without judgment, to love MYSELF in order to love others.

Instead of retreating from the world, I found my individual voice in spiritual community. In my first year of Kabbalah, my goal was to learn how to love my physical self. I stepped out of my chaotic world filled with people and took extra time to be alone. Alone was not something I did often so it took some getting used to. I explored every side of my physical, emotional, mental and spiritual self. There were many things I didn’t like, but instead of getting scared or depressed, I went into the world in search of tools – spiritual tools that would help me heal and lead me toward growth.

What I discovered was that I really like being alone; I like sitting with my own thoughts. And while I have a slight tendency toward running around in mental circles, if I allow myself to be vulnerable and share with a loved one what has me stuck, I can quickly get out of it. I am still emotional, stubborn and judgmental, qualities that can easily manifest in the negative if I am not careful, but I have also found the positive beauty in each one of those. Emotional does not have to be dramatic, it can turn life into a fun musical. Stubborn gives me the strength I need to find the best solution no matter how long it takes. And as for judgment, its positive reflection is discernment – the ability to see all sides of a situation and make a decision on what is best for all involved.

Going deep into my personal silence required me to open Pandora’s vase and acknowledge all my personal daemons, and like the mythical story, I found something quite magical sitting at the bottom: HOPE. Hope that I could become the person I wanted to be. That hope manifested in the form of deep Understanding. It is through Understanding that I accept myself and others. It is through Understanding that I release the negative side of judgment and find Beauty. It is through Understand that I find the balance between community and solitary.

As I stare out my window and watch community life from my quiet room, I am confident in the knowledge that I can happily navigate all aspects of myself. Some days I sit in silence, and some days I share with the world.


Overload! Am I allowed to ask for help?

July 7, 2011

Information Overload

Information Overload

Ahhh…. I am sitting here staring at my computer screen with a list of projects to complete and absolutely NO IDEA how to complete them. ** Deep Inhale ** Long Exhale ** Centering Myself ** OK, that was a bit of an exaggeration –I know how to complete some of the projects. But as for the bigger ones, I am lost in information overload!

Am I allowed to admit that though? I know I am human and can’t do everything, but when people are relying on me to produce results yesterday, it is hard to come back and tell them that I need more time to process before I can actually start doing. Then again, isn’t that exactly what I want in my life, to work with people that would understand that all sustainable growth is a process that takes time?

In my old life, the results were all that mattered. It was the typical world many people still live in today where what you are feeling or going through doesn’t really matter — all that matters is that you get the job done at all costs. When I walked away from that world, I released that dynamic and now only work in environments where I can be free to communicate my personal growth process alongside the tangible results of my skills.

Right now, I am working on four independent projects, each with a set of smaller projects. It is probably too much for one person to manage, but I have a slight *passion* around building things with people that have vision and find it hard to say no when asked to participate. Of the four projects, one is fairly easy and only requires time and focus for another week. I have the skills and know what I have to do, I just have to make time to execute. For another, I have stated quite clearly what I can do, but the person I am working with hasn’t given me what I need, so that gives me some extra time. For the other two, that is where the mental overload steps in.

These two projects are my life passions; these are the projects that are physical manifestations of my life purpose. One is solitary, the other in a group. The goals are other-worldly and when I reach them I will have far exceeded anything I ever thought possible in my life. Both have external people fully invested in making them successful and are looking for me to execute with precision and skill.

Are you getting a sense of where my overload feelings are coming from? It is amazing that I have finally reached a point in my life where people believe in me, but man’o’man is it intense. Not stressful in the mindless sort of way. On the contrary, I go to bed every night counting my blessings for being given these  opportunities, but there are still only so many hours in a day. And while I have shed the “fear” of disappointing others, I would like to make them proud. Add to that my superhero desire to learn a fourth language, perfect my third language, and really get to know the dozens of new people I am meeting daily… well, that leaves very little time for even sleep.

From the front row

From the front row

Both projects require *me* to come up with the game plan. There is no one that can give me a list of tasks; I must create and execute. I am working both pillars at the same time: action and integration, form and force, giving and receiving. So when I open my spiritual toolbox to find what I need, the first thing I pull out is not a physical thing at all. Yes, there are some physical tools such as flower/crystal essences, altar intention, focus rituals, etc, but the biggest tool is my professional and personal community. This is the spiritual tool I have been cultivating for the last seven years, and now is the time to use them all.

So tonight, instead of beating myself up or worrying that I am not doing enough, I am turning to the people around me and asking for help. I am calling out to friends who remind me why I am doing all this, work partners to brainstorm solutions, business partners to update expectations and non-physical guides to reveal my path. I also call out to you and ask for blessings and positive energy to fuel my work. I am connected to the collective consciousness of humanity… I am building the collective consciousness of humanity… I AM the collective consciousness. Now is the time to acknowledge that connection and allow its power to show me what I need to execute with ease, and have fun doing it.

True success is found in harmony, union and balance. Thank you for being a part of my process.

I can’t handle a long distance relationship

June 27, 2011

Mandy asks:

I recently started seeing someone, but now she is moving away for several months and I am not sure what to do. I really like her and I have a feeling there is something growing between us, but I don’t think it is good to lock ourselves into a relationship when we just met. Should I continue seeing her and risk the sadness of separation or walk away now and trust that if there is something between us it will be there when she gets back. I can’t handle a long distance relationship, but I don’t want to lose her completely. I feel really conflicted.

Inspirations from Binah replies:

New relationships are filled with wonder. Each encounter provides an opportunity to learn and share. With each passing moment, emotions connect and intertwine, quickly processing sensory input into likes and dislikes which become the basis of a relationship.

Traditionally, we have relied on physical proximity to foster this growing connection. But what do you do when that is not possible? Every day, modern technology provides new channels to bring us closer together even when we are physically apart. Can these channels be enough to nurture a new relationship?

To decide the best path, you must look to the heavens to read the navigational signs the Universe is placing before you. While relationships can be enriching, they can also become unhealthy when both parties are not ready. We often find ourselves rushing into something out of fear of losing out, than sitting back and allowing the connection to naturally unfold.

Since you know that the distance is temporary, it may be that the Universe is telling each of you that you have objectives that must be accomplished individually in order to come together out of healthy want, instead of weak need. The test is to see the distance as a spiritual tool, rather than an obstacle. The Universe has given you a glimpse of something beautiful you can be a part of, but only if you continue your own path instead of jumping onto the path of another.

In the time you are apart there will be moments of sadness. There may also be moments of prolonged silence and loneliness. Allow yourself to feel the depths and range of your emotions, for there is much to be learned when you remain present and open. Terence Trent D’Arby sang, “…all lovers must have thought provoking fears” and it is here where you have the greatest opportunity to heal and grow. Embrace the fears, thank them for their service, and then release them, asking your guides to place before you any additional spiritual tools you need to complete the healing process.

Distance never separates two hearts that really care, for our memories span the miles and in seconds we are there. But whenever I start feeling sad because I miss you, I remind myself how lucky I am to have someone so special to miss. -Emily Matthews reworked by Veronica Bowermaster

Patience is not often the easiest human trait to learn, but those who have managed to master it have earned a great prize.  Allow yourself to savor each experience with this person, free of limits, obligations and expectations. Use all the technology at your disposal to keep the connection alive, while being mindful that the physical distance has a purpose that must be honored. This is a time for individual growth; a time to continue on your individual path. Not every step must be taken alone, but at the same time, no step can be rushed. When you feel doubt, call upon your Higher Self and ask for guidance. Release fear and embrace faith.

I sit in the present to relish the beauty
of slow forward movement.

Like watching a delicate flower bloom,
a great magician is showing me
the wonder of patience.
Fear surges from time to time
…wrapping his hands around mine,
it dissipates just as quickly as it comes.

My magician speaks without words.
With every encounter I learn
the language of his actions,
finding that if I allow and trust,
all questions will be answered…
all feelings revealed
when the time is right.

Knowledge comes in different flavors and from many sources

June 25, 2011

In my last newsletter, I told you about my recent trip to Damanhur in Italy. After many scintillating conversations about the synergies between my work and this community, I have been invited to a six months residency to work on a new project. Living at Damanhur will give me the opportunity to fully experience a sustainable, community based spiritual society, something I have often dreamed of. I am packing up my home in Spain and will be moving to Italy next week!!

12 junio 2011 - 12 June 2011During the second half of 2011, my focus is the birth of three projects that I believe are crucial to my personal, and our collective, evolution:

  • Co-creating my book, Your Spiritual Toolbox, with an incredible publishing team.
  • Raising consciousness and creating a better world with Children of the Stars, a life-changing transmedia role playing entertainment experience.
  • Bringing online the Damanhur metaverse.

Always looking for ways to expand my Practical Spirituality Toolbox, I plan to be a student, teacher, mentor, mentee and peer in all of these projects. Each one provides me with new spiritual tools to use in my writing and teaching.  Technology, spirituality, art, language… a melting pot of
expression. Let the manifestation continue!!!

Throughout my residency, in addition to my duties to the community, the projects I am working on and my writing (for Inspirations from Binah and other publications), I am scheduling some time for online consultations and students. I have a feeling my time will be extremely limited, so if you would like to schedule an appointment, please contact me.

I plan to blog extensively and post pictures and videos about what I am working on. Be an active part of the Practical Spirituality community and share in the adventures:

Every day you have an opportunity to learn, teach and grow. Are you taking advantage of it?

“When we trust the path before us,

and accept that we have no idea

what the journey will look like,

we are truly living in the NOW!”

When you are ready to take that first step onto a new path,

I will be ready to help you start living the life you’ve always dreamed of having.

Keep growing… keep evolving… self-awareness fuels cosmic evolution.
