Royal Endeavors – Basque Country

Processed with VSCO with c8 preset

Ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome to the much expected last Royal Endeavors episode, dedicated to my excellent travel experience and spiritual journey in Basque Country.

We have come a long way together to finally reach this milestone. You know how much I appreciate your patience – I am also deeply involved in the process of living consciously and mindful so please feel free to highly appreciate my time investment and persistant dedication to follow my passion against all odds – there have been quite a few. I am glad the challenges stopped. I am thankful it’s still Mercury Retrograde going on so I somehow have the proper mood to deliver what I have started a long time ago. As much as I would have prefered to split this blog post in a couple of them more, I feel I deserve some space to breathe after I deliver my adventures in wonderland therefore I will keep it cool and short.

What’s being served this time? Everything on point. Let’s dive deep into my cultural tripping around the world with (even) more cathedrals and museums. I know. Just when you though I had seen them all… Today’s menu consists of my delightful experiences in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Valladolid, Pamplona and Palencia. I will start the journey of a thousand pictures by telling you a funny story of how I got stuck between four closed doors in Catedral de Pamplona for a little while, with low phone signal and literally no one to shout to for help. Nothing to worry about. I didn’t panic much either, I thought it was kind of symbolic to whatever life situation I had put myself through and I needed to get out of. I literally can’t stop thinking about a basic coaching question whenever something out of the ordinary happens: “What is this trying to teach me?”. That’s the perfect way to cool off.

So I called our official guide for help after three failed attempts due to the low signal in the two squared meters dark chamber located in a corner of an impressive cathedral which had only a few visitors during the siesta time, but as soon as I heard it could take 10 minutes for him to reach me, the perspective of being stuck there for too long didn’t feel enlightening enough so I finally pushed an enormous door a little bit harder and got myself out. I never shouted for help but I hardly doubt anyone could have heard me. The curious thing is that the door I went through was one of no return. The other two seemed not to have been used at all so there was only one I could possibly use, which was ceiling high and faced the entrance of the cathedral. It was probably a centuries old original intricately carved massive wooden door. I was also extremely happy to have done so by myself, without panic, suffering an anxiety attack or needing extra help. I’ve noticed this aspect about myself – I have no problem to ask for help if I can’t do something on my own but I happen to do that just to know there’s a safe net in case I need it. I rarely get to use it though but the possibility gives me confidence to be in charge of the situation. That’s all I need. I guess everybody needs someone to count on, after all.

On the Magnetic Power of Words.

“I am going to make everything around me beautiful – that will be my life.”

Elsie de Wolfe

My beloved audience,

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

– John 1:1

Following my recent statement made in one of the Royal Endeavors episodes dedicated to Scotland, a solemn statement regarding how much I love writing and expanding my knowledge and vocabulary with just the right words to inspire myself and others, I have come to consider the pertinent usage of high vibrational words is of crucial importance to attracting and manifesting what each of us intimately desires.

“Words, once they are printed, have a life of their own.”

– Carol Burnett

The idea of exploring the powerful vibrational resonance of words was inspired by one of my former colleagues, who surprised me one time while we were having dinner by saying I have a peculiar vocabulary – people don’t really speak like that apparently. When I asked her what she meant, she told me I simply don’t use the common words others do.

Of course, the idea of a stand-out vocabulary both flattered and intrigued me in the same time – without attempting to justify my speech in any way, I realized my state of mind, the quality of my inner thoughts, the impact of my presence and the way I express myself, apart from my aura and appearance which strike first – the overall quality of my living is deeply impacted by the resonance of the words I use. Considering I aim my presence to be warm, positive, soothing and light, I became a keen observant of my own speech and behavior.

“Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.”

– Yehuda Berg

Royal Endeavors – The Victoria and Albert Museum

Hello, my Imperial Unicorns!!! 💜👑💜

Welcome to my fabulous Royal Endeavors episode dedicated to one of the greatest museums I have ever visited – The Victoria and Albert Museum – which happens to be the world largest museum of decorative arts and design, housing an impressive permanent collection of over 2.3 million objects – it is absolutely free, perfectly outstanding and moreover, located in my new favorite city in the world, London – my darling!

The V&A was founded in 1852 and named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. It is located in the Brompton district of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, in an area that has become known as “Albertopolis” because of its association with Prince Albert, the Albert Memorial and the major cultural institutions with which he was associated. These include the Natural History Museum, which will be the subject of yet another fascinating Royal Endeavors, the Science Museum and the Royal Albert Hall. The museum is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. Like other national British museums, entrance to the museum has been free since 2001. 

Its collection spans 5,000 years of art, from ancient times to the present day, from the cultures of Europe, North America, Asia and North Africa. The holdings of ceramics, glass, textiles, costumes, silver, ironwork, jewelry, furniture, medieval objects, sculpture, prints and printmaking, drawings and photographs are among the largest and most comprehensive in the world.

The museum owns the world’s largest collection of post-classical sculpture, with the holdings of Italian Renaissance items being the largest outside Italy. The departments of Asia include Art from South Asia, China, Japan, Korea and the Islamic world. The East Asian collections are among the best in Europe, with particular strengths in ceramics and metalwork, while the Islamic collection is amongst the largest in the Western World. Overall, it is one of the largest museums in the world.

Prince Albert’s wish was to create a museum that would improve British industry by displaying works of art and design to educate and inspire designers, manufacturers and the public. Today, many of the UK’s national collections are housed at the V&A, alongside some of the most outstanding examples of architecture, fashion, painting, textiles and theatre and performance works.

On Energy, Frequency and Vibration.

Are you aware of the supreme power you have to master your vibration in order to accomplish everything you wish for? Good. Guess what – we are not just physical beings in a material world but vibrational entities in an energy quantum. As above, so below – we are the transmitters and receivers of pure energy. One of our greatest challenges is to skillfully practice the art of mindfulness and the power of manifestation in our earthly day-to-day existence.
