When it’s time to quit your job.

“I officially broke up with my 9 to 5. I didn’t want to, I NEEDED to.” -Yedismind


Quitting your job is never an easy thing to do, especially when you have bills to pay. Ask the average joe and they will tell you how unrealistic you are for thinking that your dreams will actually bring home the bacon, considering you don’t really have a legitimate plan, not one that looks good on paper anyway. But let me tell you I waited many years, many years too long for the right moment, for the right plan, for the right reasons. I spent countless of hours researching the best way to make this transition and each day I found myself more and more anxious and unhappy with my career. I felt like I wasn’t being true to myself, and even though the signs were clear, and I was being pushed out of several jobs, I would ignore them and convinced myself to stay put and try to shift my perspective.

I would TRY to engage more, change my to-do lists, come in earlier, leave later to try to eliminate any extra work that may have had an effect on my performance. I even thought maybe I needed to focus on my fitness to have more energy. I thought maybe I need to be more positive, see the good in my situation, be grateful for my job and the salary I did bring home. Even after all the effort, it all just felt meaningless, I felt lost and I felt inauthentic. Overall I found myself in a repeating cycle, feeling unappreciated, overworked and miserably hidden.

It’s interesting to look back and see something reoccur over and over, even when you change the people, change the location, change the job and yet the lesson never changes. For me, this is one of those lessons I had to learn the hard way. It not that I wasn’t doing the right things, I just wasn’t doing enough for myself, I had all my eggs in one basket, a basket that didn’t even belong to me. Each day I felt as if something kept tugging at my soul and would just ignore the signs and I waited until that very last minute, I had reached my breaking point.

On my last days of work, I literally felt suffocated and burnt out it was so bad it caused a panic attack and in that moment I could hear divine-universe speaking to me in a way that could not be ignored, not this time. What it said to me was, “You are being pushed out of these places for a reason, for a greater purpose and I will not let you settle and I will not let you fail so if you don’t make this decision on your own, you will be pushed out regardless. Don’t be afraid you know exactly what you need, what you want and how you’re going to get there.” For me, that was validation and that was the reassurance that I had been waiting for my whole entire life it seems. Along with this beautiful message, came this one…textgram_1505929084.png

Today I am present and I am embracing my journey one that I shall share with you all! I encourage you all to do the same because you are deserving, you have a purpose and you have the right to live, LIVE FEARLESSLY & PASSIONATELY! Sending you all much love and light. ♥


” Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you” – Jim Carrey 

Tired, a good tired.

Can you relate?
There’s this amazing energy in the air right now, that makes me feel so bold and motivated. I feel supported, I feel confident and I feel connected. So much that I finally know CLEARLY what it is that my body and my soul is asking for and I have been dedicating every second of my life to this calling. For the first time in a very long time I AM present in my now. I’ve released all fears of my past and all the worries of my future and it’s the best feeling in the world, to genuinely feel ALIVE! ♡

Standing in your truth, is never an easy thing. You go through so many experiences that tear you down and episodes that make you question your own sanity and at some point you find yourself walking alone, but like I said “YOU FIND YOURSELF, WALKING ALONE”. This is when you truly hear your own voice, in fact this is where you learn to depend on it with full trust away from distractions and expectations. You build yourself back up, and you allow yourself to be guided on a soul level and you learn to follow your heart and to mute that ego!! No questions asked. ♡

Once you break through you just want to keep growing, although your present, and your still and aware you just want to keep flowing! You feel like you had enough down time and you just want to keep going! Your tired but it’s a good tired. It’s a I’m shifting with the world, tired. 💚

Getting Passed Fear

“Getting passed fear is the hardest part, but once you build the confidence and you dedicate yourself to you and your vision, great things will start to happen”. -Yedi 

You cant get passed fear without facing it. I’ve found that resistance brings forth a lot of complication and the more you resist, the more you hide, and the more you hide, the more work you allow to pile up. This goes for spiritual work and physical work. The main thing to know here is that when there’s fear there is a blockage, so by knowing this, we start to recognize fear once it presents itself, which then makes it easier to go within to clear it out. This concept alone has helped me shift into a higher vibration. It’s allowed me to see life through the eyes of creation, self-love, and possibility and no longer through the eyes of fear and limitation. (You will find the exercise that helped tremendously at the bottom of this post)

Fear taught me forgiveness and it taught me to let go. I realized that I was holding on to things that hurt me beyond my soul. I was holding on to disappointment which mirrored back to me as if I was disappointing and not worthy of living a life past my traumas and failures. I think that at some point throughout our lives we have expectations which aren’t always met and we end up fighting battles that we weren’t prepared for which leaves us a bit confused and worn out. We fake a smile, we live in denial, we settle for less and convince ourselves that that’s okay, that that’s all we deserve and next thing you know you create this life you don’t even recognize and you end up working around your purpose and not towards it.

When there’s fear there’s anxiety, there’s isolation and those nerves that make your stomach churn any time you’re put in a situation that makes you feel uncomfortable. Oh, how I disliked that; your palms get sweaty, your voice in your head gets louder, you start to repeat everything you say to someone like should I have said that, am I acting right, how can I get myself out of here? Everything just seems impossible. Social gatherings were the worst for me it got to a point where I wouldn’t even look at people at the store, any human interaction just made me feel awkward. That’s when I knew there was something strange going on with me because I was never like that growing up, I was shy but always broke through.

 I lived like this for some time, as the years went by I started to notice this bitterness and a loud silence in my mind, it was like this depression that wanted to take over. I was self-aware and was still putting time into my daily practice because it was the only thing that kept me sane, but honestly at the time it didn’t feel so effective but at least I knew what was going on and the signs were clear, I just didn’t know why, or how I was going to get through. This wasn’t something I could escape or run from because it was happening within, it was with me everywhere I went. So here I am stuck dealing with this heaviness that I couldn’t handle anymore. So said to myself “enough is enough if this is rock bottom, then the only way to go is up and only I can create my happiness.”

So I decided to face whatever was going on because for me I feared the thought of not reaching my fullest potential more than fear itself. I wasn’t going to let time pass me by, I wasn’t going stop living my life because of fear. I wasn’t going to stand in the way of my own success anymore. 


So where do you start? Well, you start from the ground up literally. Tackling your fear begins with grounding yourself, and being present in the now, not what happened yesterday, or what might happen tomorrow, the right now! and you ask yourself these questions:

• What am I afraid of? • Why am I afraid? • Where in my body do I feel or hold this fear?

I want you to then take a moment to reflect on this and be honest with yourself. This is one on one with you, there’s no rush or need to hold back, just relax and allow it all to surface.

Once you have called upon this fear notice where in your being you feel this blockage. 

Now imagine that you’re surrounded with beautiful white light, know that you are protected. Then picture yourself holding a golden sword, you hold it with the greatest intention, and with so much love and value. 

When you’re ready, imagine yourself cutting the cords that attach you to this fear, or particular situation. Tell these fears, enough is enough, I release you once and for all. 

Take a deep breath and as you exhale imagine all that tension you were holding in, be released out into the universe, allowing it to be purified, and replaced with healing and love.

Visualize your connection to the divine source, feel your connection to this world and cut any cords that block your abundance. With each breath you cleanse away any debris attached to this connection, anything keeping you away from your highest and truest self.

Imagine your soul travel up a tunnel of light, this tunnel is a representation of your connection, you then hold your golden sword straight up as you make your way through and watch how effortlessly you cut and clear any remaining cords. You then feel a sense of relief, as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. 

You are now connected to earth’s purity and to the infinite universe, you feel a healing energy go through all the areas where you once had these cords. You now feel free, protected and energized. 

Now speak these affirmations out loud or mentally,

• I am worthy, • I am confident• I am fearless •I am deserving • I am ready to receive!  ♥ I CAN and WILL accomplish anything and everything I set my mind to!! 


Now where there was fear, there’s now confidence, where there was hate, there is love. Day by day you will begin to see the shift in your life, for you have shifted your state of mind into a higher vibration. When you see it, you believe it, when you believe it you manifest it. So remember that you matter, you are loved and you deserve a life full of happiness.  Namaste ♥    

 

A Lightworker’s Mission

They say before we incarnate we pick our journey, we pick our parents and we pick the struggles we are going to face in order to build our knowledge, to better serve humanity. Either we learn new things or we remember things we have learned in the past. Dejavus specifically are linked back to this concept and for me, this seems to be a true reality. I’ve always felt like I’ve lived many many many lifetimes before, there’s just this sense of familiarity everywhere I go, and they’re specific places that trigger the same Deja Vu over and over again, identically. I know that these things are often ignored, or concealed by scientific explanations but I think life goes far beyond what our minds can grasp, far beyond what our eyes can see.

We feel the air, but we can’t see it, we see the stars but they’re light years away and yet we know its there. Why do we believe that Air is Air, and Stars are Stars? Is it because we’re taught its existence or is it our natural instinct? I use these as just examples, in no way am I saying they aren’t real. What I’m saying is that if these things are real and we can’t see or touch them, then why can’t the other things we aren’t taught to be real, be real, you get me?

I’ve always had the ability to see things for more than what they seem to be, maybe it’s empathy, or maybe they are intact memories. When I was small, I remember thinking to myself,


I’ve lived before, and I completed my cycle, I learned everything there was to learn, I advanced to a world far beyond earth, but I had to come back, I had to help humanity remember, I have to assist with ascension so that finally they can find world peace and we can reach oneness.” 


Till this day I know that’s my mission, and that’s why I’m here. Now this may sound crazy, but I know it’s real and I know I’m sane. Many times I get trapped in the functions of society, and get caught up in lower vibrations and tend to forget that I know my way, and all I have to do is stay in alignment with my higher self. I can feel it in my soul, and I know my truth just like I know my name is Yedi Cardenas. I’m only 22, but my soul feels old, my soul feels tired. Sometimes I got to look in the mirror just to make sure that I’m in the right body, just to make sure that I’m aging accordingly.

When I remember my mission, the discomfort I feel from the struggles I face simply fades away, and the dark clouds I thought we’re hovering over me quickly disappear, almost like I had been imagining them all along. When you remember that you’re living by choice and not by force, there’s this energy that arises, and it uplifts you immediately, it heals all wounds, it releases all fears, you remember who you are, and why you’re here. Everything seems to fall back into place. The chaos is no longer obstructive, you see it but you are not it. You feel it but you are not blocked by it. You then become radiant with light just as you intended.

Don’t ever believe that time is against you for it does not exist, don’t ever believe that your work here is done because you never know when your gonna make a difference. May all your intentions be pure, be love and be aligned with all the greatest things of above, may you always be the best you and may you find reassurance when you feel like you can’t get through. I send you all Much Much Love & Light! I know that silence in your mind can sometimes get so loud, but just remember, you are not alone and you just got to keep on keeping on because each day we get closer and closer to 🌏✌💞…<3.

 

LOVE♥

Love is pure, love is beautiful, love is life. Love is patient, love is accepting, love is unconditional. We all understand love, we all seek love, love is our core essence. Love comes in all shapes and sizes, but there’s a special kind of love that we all desire the most. The kind of love that we all fight for, the one that many fear the most “The romantic kind of love.”

This kind of love is a special one, one that has taken over my entire being. A love felt deep within my soul, deep within my veins. Me with out love is me with out life. I’m not afraid to feel the intensity of love, the good and the bad. I’m afraid of the thought of not feeling anything at all. What saddens me is the thought of love becoming extinct.

Love is not perfect, love makes mistakes, love gets tired, love needs restoring. Love is patience, love is learning and love needs understanding. A lot is expected from love, and sometimes love can’t be everything we need it to be but love is love. Love is sometimes quiet and in its silence, it is forgotten but maybe love does respond but no one really listens. Love is not fear, but sometimes fear is louder than love.

There’s no doubt that life will get in the way of love, but it’s up to us to keep love alive, it’s up to us to give love time. Love doesn’t always go away, sometimes it’s us that gives up on love. Love is not easy, but it’s worth it, love is strength and love is value. We have to understand that love will change just like we do, but love is not limited to one fall, you can find love again, no matter what season you’re in.

When you feel empty

“Your soul is like a car it needs maintenance to keep it at its best” -Yedi Cardenas

Many times I have found myself with an empty glass, extremely empty so empty that if I were a car with no oil, no gas, and no antifreeze , I would have broken down, and exploded a long time ago. It’s amazing how much our minds can’t take, yet we keep driving and pushing ourselves and no one takes the time to inspect us to make sure we’re running smoothly. It just doesn’t work like that. You just got to take matters into your own hands, DIY to the fullest. As positive as I strive to be, I do have those days where I feel like I’m slipping away, slipping away into this silence because there’s no way to physically show the world that you don’t have anymore to give, that maybe just for one day you need some assistance and if your like me, you have a hard time asking for help because in their eyes

“You’re okay, and you got this”

90% of the time, I do got this! But that 10% sure does get the best of me and my advise to those, when going through your 10%.

Don’t be hard on yourself, take a few moments to send yourself love, breathe and remember that this will soon pass and tomorrow will be another day. Take a moment to meditate, and reflect on all the good things about your life and about yourself, because even if others cant hear you, and can’t see your pain, there is a God, and there is light at the end of the tunnel. Go to that beautiful quiet place, where nothing negative exists, where everything is possible, where you are loved unconditionally, and accepted for who you are, go there…and restore yourself with the best kind of love…Self-Divine Love!

Surround yourself with Love and Light and remember that you are special, you are needed! and when your ready come back and conquer another day…❤
