La vida es un constant regalo de lecciones. I’ve had the privilege to be able to live through this all and the second I was diagnosed I knew this was here for me to learn from. It’s been the most amazing ride I could have ever wished for! :D

He tenido el privilegio de poder vivir por todo esto

Descubrí el poder del amor ... El poder de nuestras palabras y pensamientos. He aprendido a ser más paciente con la vida; He aprendido mucho sobre el tiempo Divino y al respetarlo por lo que es. Tengo mucho mejor entendimiento de mi cuerpo, sus funciones, potencialidades y 'super' poderes como nunca antes. Sé que soy capaz de cualquier cosa y todo lo que se necesita es un pensamiento consciente. Nuestros pensamientos son una de las herramientas más poderosas de la conciencia humana. Literalmente nos hacemos la realidad que creemos y pensamos.

Como ahora tengo un equilibrio diferente en mi oído interno al que nací, he guardado un régimen de yoga durante los últimos once años y este camino de meditación y la espiritualidad ha sido una de las actividades más hermosas y poderosas que jamás hubiera encontrado por este camino para luego así tomarlo como un modo de vida. Yoga me ha sanado de no sólo mis dolores físicos, sino en todos los aspectos de mi vida, el corazón y la mente. Toda mi investigación y la meditación me ha enseñado mucho acerca de la nutrición y lo poderoso que los alimentos que comemos son para nuestro bienestar general! He aprendido a apreciar las nuevas "limitaciones" mi cuerpo me he dado cuenta que todas nuestras limitaciones están dentro de nosotros ... en nuestra cabeza. Algunos dicen que "el cielo es el límite; No estoy de acuerdo, yo creo que nuestra mente es el limite. Siempre hay algo que podemos hacer! Aprendí a ser amable conmigo misma en el proceso de comprender que es ‘la practica de yoga’; y al adoptar este proceso de pensamiento en todo lo que hago en mi vida.

He aprendido a amarme en lo absoluto y a celebrar todos los aspectos de mi existencia. He aprendido a abrir mi corazón y mente a la vibración de los demás para asi tener las mejores y más positivas interacciones posibles, y en consecuencia  me lleva a una mejor vibración interna. Tengo que mantenerme en cierto nivel de zen para asi continuar este hermoso camino con el corazón grande y abierto para asi continuar moviéndome por este mundo como la luz brillante que soy y hecha brillo al pasar.

 He aprendido una nueva definición a la magia. Ahora me parece que encontrarlo todo mágico! Como lo son esos momentos en nuestra vida en que estamos tan gratamente sorprendidos, todo nos parece posible. He aprendido a sólo rodearme de gente amable, abierta, creativa, feliz, desinteresados, personas fuertes y con los corazones mas grandes del Mundo. Aprendí acerca del inmenso poder de nosotros mismos y que no importa cuanto otros nos quieran ‘salvar’; el poder de hacerlo esta dentro nuestro. Y que tengo la gran habilidad de rodearme de la gente mas maravillosa del planeta y el privilegio de llamarlos mis amig@s.

 

 He aprendido que ya no estoy aquí en este mundo para mí, sino para los demás. Mi llamamiento Divino en la vida es mas grande que cualquier cosa que jamás podría imaginar, y yo estoy aquí para cambiar el mundo. Un mundo donde podamos vivir libremente en plena vibración de amor, el que nos impulsa a lugares, distancias y las posibilidades inconmensurables. "Puedes decir que soy un soñador, pero no soy el único ..." Yo había dicho una vez que estos tumores cerebrales eran lo mejor que me pudo haber pasado. Sí, a pesar de todos los síntomas que he tratado durante años.. los cuales ahora estoy sacando de mi cuerpo ... este es la mejor paseo que jamás hubiese podido imaginar.

Life is a constant gift of lessons. I’ve had the privilege to be able to live through this all and the second I was diagnosed I knew this was here for me to learn from. It’s been the most amazing ride I could have ever wished for! :D

I discovered the power of LOVE… The power of our words and thoughts. I have learned to be more patient with life; I have learned much about Devine timing and respecting time for what it is. I have a much better understanding of my body, its functions, potentials and ‘super’ powers than I ever did before. I know I am capable of any thing and all it takes is a conscious thought. Our thoughts are one of the most powerful tools of human consciousness. We literally make the reality we believe in and think of.

 

Since I have a different balance in my inner ear than the one I was born with, I have kept a yoga regimen for the past eleven years and this path of meditation and spirituality has been one of the most beautiful and empowering activities I could have ever encountered to have then made a life style. Yoga has healed me from not only my physical pains, but in every aspect of my life, heart and mind. All my research and meditation has taught me so much about nutrition and how powerful the foods we eat are to our overall wellbeing! I have learned to appreciate the new “limitations” my body has given me, realizing that all our limitations are within us…in our head. Some say “the sky is the limit; I disagree, I believer our mind is. There is always something we can do! Being kind to myself in the proces through the understanding that is ‘the practice of yoga’; and adopting that through process through every thing I do in my life.

I have learned to absolutely love myself and to celebrate every aspect of my existence. I have learned to open my heart and mind to the vibration of others so I can have the best and most positive interactions possible that consequently send me to a higher vibration. I have to be in a certain level of zen in order for me to continue this journey, and with an open heart an mind I can easily move myself around this world as a beam of shining light that leaves a streak of glow as it walks by. I have learned a new definition for magic. I now seem to find everything magical! Magic, is those moments in our life where we are so pleasantly surprised, everything seems possible. I have learned to only surround myself with the most loving, kind, opened, creative, happy, selfless, strong people in The World. I learned about the amazing power of self and that no matter how much others want to ‘save’ us; the power to do so is within us. And that I have an amazing ability to surround myself with the most amazing people in the planet and the privilege to call them my friends.

 

 I have learned that I am no longer here in this World for myself, but for others. My Devine calling in life is greater than anything I could ever imagined, and I am here to change The World. A World where we can all freely live in love vibration, one that drives us places of immeasurable distances and possibilities. “You may say that I am a dreamer, but I’m not the only one…” I had said once that this brain tumors were the best thing that could have ever happened to me. Yes, despite all the symptoms I have dealt with for years and I am now riding of my body… this is the best ride I could have ever imagined.

La vida tiene una manera de encontrarse perfecta cada vez. Al verlo todo como un milagro, le da a todo una perspectiva mágica y por eso los mejores resultados. Como llegamos al final de la temporada de taxi-bicicleta, no nos fue tan bien financieramente como lo esperábamos. Dicen que “la necesidad es la madre de la invención” y me motive rápidamente a encontrar formas alternativas de ingreso. Aprendí desde chiquitita de mi Madre (una mujer que no se sentaba nunca derramando su talento hasta el día que murió) Aprendí a ser ingeniosa y a potenciar mis existentes dones. En muchas maneras tenia todo lo que pudiese necesitar para triunfar y El Universo lo hizo todo posible para que pudiese descubrir lados artísticos míos de los cuales solo había soñado. Bien seguido digo que El Universo se conspira en mi beneficio. El creer eso, me a mostrado lados de mi llamado Divino en la vida el cual solo he podido lograr por medio de la aprobación absoluta y amor a todo. Celebro todo lo que soy.

Tuvimos el privilegio de conocer a CJ por medio de nuestras aventuras de taxi-bicicleta; quien muy generosamente nos abrió de su Corazón y hogar al dejarnos instalar una carpa en su “Establo de Música” en el patio trasero de su casa en Davis, California; quien también me enseño mucho acerca de nutrición; suplementos naturales, compasión y música. Como su casa esta localizada en una calle muy traficada al estar adjunta a la Universidad de California; pensé que seria un muy buen lugar para instalar una venta de “Pastelitos y Arte”. Siempre he regalado mis productos horneados a mis amigos; y seguido me dicen “deberías vender estos!” He sido artista toda mi vida; fui la dueña de mi propia empresa de Diseño de Interiores, la Directora Ejecutiva de ArtStory, la fundación que organice hace uno años y he me han encargado muchas piezas de arte! Pero nunca había tenido el valor de vender mi arte al pública como lo estoy haciendo aquí y ahora por primera vez. Reuniendo todos los productos horneados que pudiese hacer en dos días; usando todas mis mejores recetas e ingredientes y también todas las impresiones que tenia conmigo en forma digital, firmadas y cubiertas en plástico.

Viejas puertas pintadas con pintura de pizarrón negra y con un intrinco trabajo de letras en tiza; manteles blancos y la creación de arte en vivo hacen que capturen la vista de muchos. Nuestros amigos venían a hacer música en vivo en el piano de la terraza y varias sesiones de música improvisadas y espontáneas con muchos instrumentos y cantantes eran parte de la ocurrencia normal en el puesto de “Arte Amor Curativo” o "El Vórtice de Amor". Desde el primer día que fue un gran éxito y lo mantuvimos abierto durante unas semanas hasta que la madre naturaleza decidió que era hora de seguir este camino de una manera diferente.

El apoyo que recibí en el Puesto de Arte me cambio la vida increíblemente. Los negocios vecinos me dieron un gran apoyo a través de su aliento y animo constante; comidas gratis ilimitadas; obras de arte por encargo; contribuciones en efectivo y también muchas ventas de piezas arte! La comunidad sintió el amor compartido a través de lo que el puesto de Arte Amor Curación se ha convertido. Una explosión de corazones de tiza en la acera, árboles y paredes hacen que el camino que te lleva al arte. Mensajes en el suelo dando a conocer que "Eres increíble"; "Tu sonrisa es brillante como El Sol"; "Eres tan amado!" E inspirado por Candy Chang, (Planificadora Urbana; activista) uno de mis favoritos es "Es bueno estar aquí". El Puesto de Arte se convierte en un "vórtice de amor"; como muchos lo han llamado; y las caras sonrientes que caminan no pueden dejar de responder al amor. Los constantes abrazos, regalos, oraciones, sonrisas y palabras de aliento y gratitud me han demostrado que mi propósito aquí es mucho mayor que lo que jamás hubiera imaginado.

A pesar de todo el amor que nos teníamos, con el pololo entendimos que era mejor seguir nuestros propios caminos... Apenas hacía demasiado frío para que me quedara solita en el granero de música; uno de mis amigos músicos, David, El cual a menudo visitaba El Puesto de Arte Amor Curativo para tocar su música y ser parte del amor de la comunidad; generosamente ofreció que me quedara en su casa en la Comunidad Cooperativa Sunwise donde me adoptaron y  me consideraron inmediatamente uno de los suyos. Allí aprendí mucho acerca de prácticas sostenibles; el amor de la comunidad y el don del Ser. Realmente he descubierto el valor de lo que podemos ser el uno al otro si decidimos escuchar a nuestros corazones. El amor, aliento y apoyo que he recibido de todos, los proyectos comendados mientras vivía en el Co-op Sunwise fue increíble. Acciones constantes nacidas desde el corazón que me recuerdan cuan amada y valorada soy. Me regocijo en gratitud por haber tenido todos estos ángeles en mi vida este último par de meses. He tenido el privilegio de servir a través de todo lo que he sentido yo fuese más necesitada en cada momento. Como estoy estudiando y entrenando en Terapia de Masaje Tailandés he podido practicar mucho en ellos, lo cual ha hecho que este viaje sea aún más mágico. La Terapia de Masaje Tailandés es la manifestación física de metta (amor bondadoso y puro) y sumergirme en todo ese amor ha abierto mi corazón en un hermoso camino de auto descubrimiento; "Transcente a todas las técnicas debe ser la pureza de corazón y una clara intención de servir".

Mientras sigo trabajando en mi arte a medida que continúo este camino de Amor curativo. Como dice en mi declaración del artista: Los artistas son la herramienta de la traducción de la belleza del universo; y ahora tengo el privilegio de cambiar el mundo a través de mi arte a medida que continúo este viaje en el que el corazón me lleva ...

Mi salud sigue mejorando, a pesar de tener varios días en los que toma mucho amor propio y meditación para hacerlo con ganas, amor y propósito. Las convulsiones se casi han desaparecido. Casi no pierdo la conciencia y muchos de los síntomas, como vómitos raros incluso han desaparecido y ahora tengo muchos días sin dolor de cabeza! Sigo mis prácticas de amor a través de dieta estricta y suplementos, yoga, meditación, música, dibujo, baile, bicicleta, jardinería y limpieza! En realidad cualquier cosa que me haga feliz! Espero poder subir todas estas prácticas curativas a la pagina para que puedan accederlas fácilmente a los todos que siguen mis aventuras. Mi corazón está lleno de gratitud y amor; Tengo mucho trabajo por delante, y ganas de hacerlo todo!

Life has its own ways of finding itself to be perfect. Seeing everything as a miracle gives life the most magical perspective and therefore most amazing outcomes. Since we caught the tail end of the bike taxi season it didn’t go as well as we had expected financially. It is said that “necessity is the mother of invention” and so it quickly motivated me to seek alternative forms of income. I learned from a young age from my Mother (a woman that never sat still spewing out talent until the day she died) I learned to be very resourceful and to maximize on my excising assets. In many ways I had absolutely everything I needed to succeed and The Universe made it all possible for me to be able to discover sides of myself as an artist I had only dreamed of. I often say The Universe conspires in my benefit. That belief has shown me a side of my Devine calling in life that I have only been able to achieve through absolute acceptance and love for it all. I celebrate all that I am.

 

We had the privilege to have met CJ through our bike-taxi adventures, who so generously opened his home and heart to us; and not only let us set up a tent inside  “The Music Barn” in the back yard of his downtown home in Davis, California; and also taught me much about nutrition; natural supplements; compassion and music. Since his home is located on a very busy street, with a lot of foot traffic from UC Davis; I thought it would be a great location to install a “Bake & Art Fundraiser”. I have always gifted my baked goods to my friends; and often heard “you should sell these!”  I have been an artist my whole life, I have owned my own Interior Design business, I’m the Executive Director of ArtStory; the non-profit I founded and have had many art pieces commissioned throughout the years, but had never had the courage to sell art to the public as I was doing here and now for the first time. Gathering as many baked goods as I could make in two days; using all my best recipes and ingredients plus all of the prints that I happened to have with me in digital form, signed and sleeved. Old doors painted in black chalkboard with intricate font work; white tablecloths and live art making made it to be an eye catch. Our friends came to play live music on the outdoor piano, and multiple spontaneous jam sessions were a part of the normal occurrence at The Healing Love Art Stand or “The Love Vortex”. From day one it was a success and were able to keep it open for a few weeks until Mother Nature decided it was time to continue this path in a different way.

 

The support I received at The Stand was amazingly life changing. The neighboring businesses gave me great support through, constant encouragement; limitless free foods; commissioned work; cash contributions and multiple print sales! The community felt the love shared through what The Healing Love Art Stand has become. An explosion of chalk hearts on the side-walk, trees and walls make the path that brings you to The Art. Messages on the ground letting them know “You are amazing”; “Your smile is bright like the sunshine”; “You are SO loved!” and inspired by Candy Chang, (Urban Planner; activist) one of my favorites is “It’s good to be here”. The Art Stand becomes a “vortex of LOVE”; as many have called it; and the smiling faces that walk can’t help but to reply the love. The constant hugs, gifts, prayers, smiles and words of encouragement and gratitude have shown me that my purpose here is much greater than I could have ever imagined.

 

 

Despite all the love we had for each other we understood it was best the boyfriend and I parted ways. As soon as it was too cold for me to stay by myself in The Music Barn; one of my musician friends David, who often visited The Healing Love Art Stand to play his music and share of the community love; generously offered for me to stay in his home at Sunwise Co-op where I was immediately adopted and considered one of their own. There I learned much about sustainable practices; community love and the gift of self. I have truly discovered the value of what we can be to one another if we chose to listen to our hearts. The love, encouragement, and support I have received on every endeavor I have set for my self while living in at Sunwise Co-op has all been amazing. Constant actions from the heart that remind me of how loved and valued I am. I rejoice in gratitude for having had all these angels in my life this past couple of months. I have had the privilege to serve them through anything I have felt I would be most needed. Since I am studying and training in Thai Massage Therapy I am able to practice on them and it has made this journey even more magical. Thai Massage Therapy is the physical manifestation of  metta (pure loving kindness) and immersing myself in all that love has opened my heart in a beautiful path of self discovery; “Transcendet to all techniques must be purity of heart and a clear intention to serve”.

 

I continue to work on my art as I continue this journey of Healing Love. As it is in my artist statement: Artists are the vessel of the translation of the beauty of The Universe; and I now have the privilege to change The World through my art as I continue this journey where the heart takes me…
            My health continues to improve, despite having multiple days where It takes much self love and meditation to make it through in kind love and purpose. The seizures are almost gone. I no longer loose consciousness through them and many of the symptoms, like random vomiting have even disappeared and I now have many days head-ache free! I continue my love practices through strict diet and supplements; yoga; meditation; music; drawing; biking; dancing; gardening, and cleaning! Pretty much any thing that makes me happy! I look forward to getting all these healing practices online so I can easily access those who follow my adventures. My heart is filled with gratitude and love; I have much work ahead, all of which I very much look forward to!

Pedaleando por LA CURA, es una recaudacion de fondos en el que estoy trabajando para cubrir los costos del tratamiento y cura de los tumores cerebrales que tengo. Estamos viajando por California pedaleando los taxi-bicicleta de un amigo mio para asi educar, RAISE AWARENESS, compartir el amor, un aliento de esperanza y posibilidades con cada quien nos encontramos! Les estamos dando un flyer a cada pasajeros del taxi-bicicleta, con informacion y la direccion a esta pagina para que pudan seguir esta Aventura en la que me nos encontramos!

 

Llegamos a la casa de mi amigo el Jueves pasado. Nos pasamos el fin de semana entrenando las piernas con el taxi-bicicleta en Sacramento. El lugar del evento era hermoso y me la pase casi todo el dia cleteando el Puente del rio Sacramento. La respuesta de la gente fue muy buena. Antes de que que el pasajero se suba les hablamos de lo que estamos haciendo les pedimos que donen cuanto les acomode y les decimos que visiten la pagina y el blog. Hay veces en que el viaje es duro y pesado, en esos viajes no puedo hablar mucho, hacique el flyer ayuda a la gente a hacer preguntas. Otras veces tengo la oportunidad de hablar intensamente con ellos y paso a ser un tipo de guia o amiga a ellos. Las historias que naces detras de mi asiento en la bici son genialmente locas! Me han pedido mucho que las escriba, hacique aqui estoy, espero les gusten! He hecho taxi-bicicleta por un par de años ya, y entiendo bien la naturaleza del negocio, ahora el poder llevarlo a otro nivel para poder recolectar fondos para asi poder salvar mi vida es una gran oportunidad y estoy demasiado contenta con esta nueva aventura!

Hoy nos vamos a la aventura denuevo! El auto esta empacado y nos vamos a el festival “Fover Land”! Este evento queda en los paisajes mas lindos del lago Lodgoga en la reserva del parque Este en el condado de Colusa, California. Llegamos hoy a armar campamento y a ayudar a los participantes del festival a llevar sus cosas del auto al lugar de campamento, En eso estaremos hazta el proximo Lunes! Hacique apenas tengama acceso al internet denuevo les cuento como nos fue! :D Les deseo un hermoso dia! Luz en sus corazones, sonrisas felices y ojitos brillantes!

Pedaling for THE CURE, is a fundraiser we are currently working on to raise funds for brain tumor treatment, research and cure. We are traveling throughout California, pedaling our friend’s bike taxi to educate people, raise awareness, share love, smiles, a breath of hope and possibilities to everyone we encounter! As we give a bike taxi ride to people, we give them one of our flyers with a bit of information and the address to this website so they can come check what this crazy adventure is all about!

We arrived at my friend’s house in Davis, California last Thursday. Spent the weekend training the legs pedicabing in Sacramento. The event place was beautiful and spent most of the day biking over a bridge over the Sacramento river. The response we got was amazing! Before people hop on the cab, we let them know about the fundraiser and ask them to donate as they are comfortable, I encourage them to check the website and read my blog. There are times where the ride is a hard and heavy one, and I don’t get to talk much through it, so the flyer helps bridge the gap and it gets them asking questions. There are other times where we talk very intensely and for some reason I become some sort of guide and friend to them. The stories that have come out from behind my bike seat are pretty awesomely crazy! I’ve been asked and encouraged to write them down and so here I am, hope you enjoy them! I have pedicabed on and off for a couple of years, and I understand the nature of the business well, now taking it to the next level so I can raise funds to save my life is an amazing opportunity and I’m stoked for the new adventure!

 

Today we are off to our next adventure! The care is packed and we are headed to Forever Land Festival! This event takes place on the beautiful landscape of Lake Lodgoga (the East Park reservoir) in Colusa County, California. We arrive today to set base camp and to help festival goers with their gear from the parking lot to their campsites, we’ll be on that until next Monday! As soon as I have internet access again I’ll write on how it went! :D

I wish you a beautiful day! Light in your heart, happy smiles and shining eye!
Bear hugs!

La vida tiene como darnos vueltas, ponernos de cabeza y de lados. Es el como uno reacciona a lo que nos viene por el camino lo que se hace nuestra realidad. El que me diagnosticaran con tumores cerebrales ha sido una de las experiencias mas iluminadoras de mi vida, me ha hecho abrir los ojos de una manera que no sabia possible. He aprendido a entender mis fortalezas y desarollar nuevos sentimientos de gratitud por TODO lo que tengo. Vivir de los ahorros solamente se puede hacer por un tiempo. Estaba perdiendo la batalla con mi cuerpo y los efuerzos para poder sentirme lo suficientemente bien para poder trabajar no eran suficientes. Me la pasaba todo el dia en cama tratando de hacer que mi cuerpo se sintiera lo suficientemente bien para poder levantarme.

 

La responsabilidad financiera de todo esto ha sido mucho mas de lo que he sido capaz estos ultimos meses y no pude cubrir el arriendo. Tarde o temprano llego una notificacion en la puerta que nos daba tres dias para pagar o evacuar, mientras esperaba en cualquier dia que llegaran dineros de trabajos que ya habia hecho. Puse un llamado a todos quien me pudiesen ayudar y por esas cosas de la vida llego una gran oportunidad de PEDALEAR POR LA CURA! He tenido muy buena suerte de poder conocer a GRANDE gente, por todos lados… Sin pensarla dos veces y con todo el amor del mundo, mi querido amiguito nos ofrecio esta oportunidad. El departamento esta ya empacado y guardado en la bodega de una amiga por estos tiempos, el auto esta lleno y vamos camino a CALIFORNIA BABY! Vamos a estar en el area de San Francisco por unos meses pedaleando por la cura… mas detayes vienen pronto ;) Estare escribiendo en mi blog para mantenerlos informados y para compartir las historias que llegan con esta gran Aventura!...(www.pamela-alejandra.com)

 

Este es uno de los momentos mas excitantes de mi vida! Uno de los Neurologos que estaba viendo me dijo en Junio del año pasado que “no duraria mas de un año asi de enferma”…(aaayy.. golpe al ego) Ya no escojo creer lo que me dijo ese Doctor, y estoy aqui para CURARME! Se que puedo. Veamos como se hace…con todas las ganas del mundo! :D :D :D

Les quiero agradecer a mis amigos MARAVILLOSOS que tengo en Salt Lake City. Ellos corren, saltan, caminan, y bailan al rescate… cada. Vez.  Fue incredible ver como minutos después de recibir la nota de evacuar en la puerta, coincidentemente recibo varios mensajes de textos de mis amigos preguntandome como estoy y si hay en halgo en que ellos me pueden ayudar… me quede con la boca abierta…

Hay fuerzas my grandes empujando, tirando, levantando y brillando todo mi camino. HAGAMOS ESTO! Gracias por todo su amor, apoyo, paciencia, entendimiento, fe y ACTITUD POSITIVA!

 

ES CONTAGIOSA!!! :D

Que pasa?

En Noviembre del 2008 me diagnosticaron con tumors cerebrales y despues de multiples examines en la diagnosis me dijeron que eventualmente tentria que tener cirugia para removerlos. Recomendaron mantenerlos monitoriados mientras encontraba un tratamiento alternativo o hazta que las complicaciones de salud me indicaran de otra manera. Fue mi determinacion y amor a la vida lo que me ayudo a mantenerlo todo “bajo control” por muchos años. Tuve muchos MRIS, CT-SCANS Y EEG’S durante los años para asegurarme que no hubiesem mayors cambios o complicaciones. Lidie con los Dolores de cabeza, los mareos y combulciones, dolores musculares, fatiga cronica, dentro de otras complicaciones. Segui persistiendo, mientras lidiaba con todo fui estudiante de honores, y constantemente en la lista del Decano; participle de multiples oportunidades de liderazgo y varias practicas en el rubro profecional; aprendi a handar en snowboard y me hice instructora de ski y snowboard. Aprendi masajes Tailandes y trabajos energeticos para asi poder seguir ayudando al proyimo aun mas efectivamente. Le di vuelta a mi vida. Empece a salir afuera a jugar harto mas, igual como lo hacia antes. Me encanta el aire libre, aprendi a amarme de verdad.

Nuevas:

Hace ya un año, mis condiciones medicas agravaron y me di cuenta que las cosas serias y que tenia que hacer lo que sea y fuera para salvar mi vida. Dolores de cabeza cegantes, combulciones, perdida del equilibrio, vomitos de la nada, dolores musculares, y los usuales sintomas de tumores cerebrales los cuales me mantuvieron en cama por la mayor parte del año pasado. Las situacion se puso aun mas seria. Trate todo tipo de medicina tradicional y sus drogas, pero nada ayudo. Hice un tratamiento homeopatico el cual hizo que los sintomas fueran mas leves y poder descanzar de la enfermedad un poco.

 

Que he hecho:

Nuevamente decidi tomar control sobre mi vida, y el cambiar mi dieta alimenticia fue una de las primeras cosas que hice. Me he amado y he sido mi mejor amiga durante todo este proceso. Estudie nutrición y cambie la manera a como veia a los alimentos. Ahora como organico lo mas que puedo y mantengo una dieta vegana; extracto jugos de vegetales a diario y me limpio de azucares y otras toxinas regularmente. He estudiado mucho hacerca del tema, y por un buen dato aprendi de “la dieta del cancer” y el tipo de extractacion de jugos vegetales por medio de “Gerson Juicing”; de ahy aprendi de la importancia de comer vegetales crudos. Ahora estoy trabajando en un libro de recetas con toda la informacion que he aprendido y metodos de vida que he adoptado como propios para poder haber perdido todo el peso habia subido por las complicaciones que traen los tumores a la proximidad a la glandula petuitaria. El vivir en Utah facilito mis actividades ficicas, vivo en el centro hacique hando en bici para todos lados! Por supuesto que con mucho cuidado, respeto y habiendo tomado todas las precauciones subo las montañas y hago snowboard lo mas que puedo y trato de mantenerme activa con aventuras que requieren mi equilibrio y fisico regularmente. Para lidiar con la perdida de balance empece un regimen intensive de yoga que cambio mi vida, mi cuerpo, postura, fuerza y flexibilidad, mientras a la vez intensifico mi espiritualidad.

 

A de Actitud

Se que como escojo tratar con esta circumstancia es lo que hago de mi realidad. El tener que poner my carrera en la espera, no estaba en mis planes, pero hay mejores cosas aun mas importantes las cuales requieren mi atencion en estos momentos.  El prioritizar mi salud ante todo ha hecho possible que me enfoque en mi arte aún más. En estos momentos estoy trabajando en las ilustraciones de tres libros de niños que escribi; y una serie photografica de ilustraciones para una galleria aqui en Salt Lake City. También sigo desarroyando mi musica y espero grabar unas canciones mas dentro de estas semanas. Practico mi lectura y escritura lo mas que puedo para mantener mi mente activa y la creatividad fluyente. Los libros en los que estoy trabajando son una tarea mucho mas grande de lo que me imagine, y me encanta el desafío!

 

También me hice una pagina web personal con todo lo que estoy haciendo, para mantenerlos informados de todo y mientras sigo con ArtStory, la fundacion que empece hace un par de años. (ESE ES UN VIDEO QUE TIENES QUE VER!) Con ArtStory viajo por comunidades alrededor del Mundo, studio y enseño su historia, cultura y medioambiente a los niños y miembros de la comunidad por medio de caminatas culturales, projectos de arte y musica, preservacion historica, programas de reciclaje, y asi aumentar la conciencia medioambiental para el mejor crecimento, desaroyo y amor a la comunidad! Al finalizar el programa, traemos artistas locales para enseñar a los niños de su arte y artesanía para asi trabajar en una obra de arte en grupo que simboliza lo que los niños acaban de aprender y a la ves ser un obsequio a la comunidad.

 

Los que me rodean…

He tenido el privilegio de tener angeles en mi vida, los cuales me han ayudado mucho en todo este proceso. No hubuese podido hacer nada de lo que ya he hecho si no fuera por la maravillosa gente que me he encontrado en el camino y los queridisimos amigos que tengo en mi vida. Tengo mucho de que agradecer. Se que estoy muy bien protegida y muy amada, mi angel Madre me vigila y siento su amor <3 Y también me siento muy amada por los que me rodean, los que me aguantan cuando no me siento bien, los que me ayudan a hacer mi vida mas fácil solo por ser ellos. Estoy tan agradecida por todos esos angeles que magicamente llegan al rescate cuando las cosas se ponen dificiles. Es muy interesante y maravilloso estar vivo en estos tiempos y ver cuan conectada la gente esta uno al otro. Miro hacia adelante a todas las aventuras que vienen! Mi creador me tiene aqui por un gran proposito…Amo la vida, hacique dejame compartir como la vivo… Aqui estoy! Visita mi pagina! Ha sido una gran experiencia de crecimiento, he aprendido mucho y espero al futuro con los brasos bien abiertos. Lo que no me mata me hace aun mas fuerte…!

 

GANEMOSLE A ESTA!

He peleado esta con todo lo que tengo, y entiendo que esto es ya una situacion extrema que necesita medidas extremas. No es para distraerse y se tiene que atacar con todo. Para asegurar tratamiento, necesito tu ayuda. Las cuentas medicas se suman y el correteo de La Universidad fue mucho para poder continuar haciendolo todo sola. A pesar de enfocarme en el trabajo lo mas que puedo, el tiempo en el que me siento lo suficientemente bien para hacer halgo es muy limitado y ahora me encuentro en extremas necesidades de tratamiento. Con tu ayuda, podre continuar mi dieta tan extricta, suplementos multiples, injecciones, vitaminas, remedios homeopaticos, tratamiento laser, el cual es muy costoso, para reducer el tamaño de los tumores y posiblemente cirugia cerebral el proximo año. Toda ayuda es bien recibida! Hacique si me ayudas, no te vas con las manos vacias! Dependiendo de lo que puedes contribuir, recibiras una copia de mi arte, uno de los libros de niños en los que estoy trabajando, o un original! Y aún más importante me estarás dando una oportunidad de vivir esta maravillosa vida que tenemos; rodeada de los ceres mas increibles y amorosos para asi poder continuar hacienda una diferencia en ESTE mundo. Gracias!

              Life has a way of turning us around, upside down and side ways. It is how we choose to react to what comes our way what we make of our reality. Being diagnosed with brain tumors has been by far the most eye opening experience I could have ever asked for. Learning my new “limitations”; respecting, appreciating and learning from them throughout the whole process. Realizing my strengths and feeling great gratitude for all I’ve been given. Living off savings only lasts for so long, the rat-race to feel well enough to work ran short and I found myself spending all my time in bed trying to do what ever I could to make my body feel well enough to get up.

              The financial responsibility of all this has been beyond my current capabilities these last months and wasn’t able to cover rent. A three-day notice to vacate while praying all of the moneys I was owed from jobs I’ve been doing would pan out. I put a call out there to all whom could help and we came about this amazing opportunity to PEDAL FOR THE CURE! I am very fortunate to know AMAZING people everywhere… and with no hesitation and all the love in the world, my sweet friend offered this opportunity to us... Our apt is now packed at our friend’s garage for the time being, the car is full and we are on our way to CALIFORNIA BABY! We’re going to be in The Bay area for the next few months pedaling for the cure… more details coming soon ;) I’ll be blogging on my website to keep everyone as updated as possible and to share the fun stories of this crazy awesome adventure…(www.pamela-alejandra.com)

              This is a very exciting time in my life! I was told by one of my Neurologists in June of last year that I “wouldn’t last a year sick as I was” …  (ouch, ego blow) I am no longer choosing to believe what he said and I’m here to CURE MYSELF! I know I can. Let’s just see how this is going to unfold… I’m excited! :D :D :D
I want to thank all my AMAZING friends I have in Salt Lake City. They run, jump, hop, skip and dance to the rescue…. every. time. It was amazing to see how minutes after I get the eviction notice on the door I get several texts from friends asking how I was doing and how could they help… I was in aw.

There is a HUGE force pushing, pulling, lifting and shinning my way. LET’S DO THIS!
Thank you for all your love, support, patience, understanding, faith, and POSSITIVE ATTITUDE!

 

IT’S CONTAGIOUS!!! :D

What’s Going On?

 

In November of 2008 I was diagnosed with brain tumors. After multiple exams after the diagnosis I was told that I would have to eventually have brain surgery to remove them. Fortunately, I was told that I could keep them monitored while we found alternative medicine, or until the health complications took over and felt that surgery was the last and only option. It was my determination and love of life that has helped me keep everything “under control” for many years. I had multiple MRIs, CT-scans and EEGs through out the years to make sure there were no major changes or complications. I dealt with the headaches, the dizziness and seizures, muscle and joint pain, chronic fatigue and a multitude of other complications. However, I keep persisting. I turned my life around. I started going outside to play a lot more, like I always have, loved so much and much more deeply, and learned to truly love myself. I spent these last few years taking care of myself in ways that I had needed to my whole life; I got a divorce from an abusive relationship; transferred my Honor roll status as student at the University of Utah; learned how to snowboard and became an instructor; lost 120lbs I had gained from the hormonal imbalances the brain tumors caused (due to their proximity to the pituitary gland). To use the knowledge in Urban Planning I had gained from The U and to continue my athleticism I became a bike-taxi tour driver in the downtown SLC area; I rock climbed and hiked as much as I could I acquainted Open Mics often with my music, and it all changed after the last diagnosis.

 

New Happenings

For a year now, my medical conditions have become more severe, and I came to the realization that now I should do anything and everything to change my life so I could live it. Blinding headaches, seizures, severe loss of balance, impromptu vomiting, joint pain, and the other usual brain tumor symptoms that have kept me bed written for the most part of 2013 as the symptoms became more severe and more taxing on my every day life. I tried Western Medicine and Western medication, but it didn’t seem to help in the slightest. Quite the opposite: the drugs seemed to make me feel worse. I saw numerous doctors and the neurologist I was seeing in June 2013 told me that, “No one stays "that sick" for more than a year.” Something direly needed to change quickly! Homeopathy made the symptoms less severe. Fortunately, I was able to get a break from it all with the work of homeopathy while I continue on this journey, both with my adventures and fight for this illness.

 

What I’ve Done?

I had decided to take control over my life, and changing my diet to improve my health was one of the first things I did. I have loved myself and I been my best friend throughout the whole process. Studied nutrition and changed the way I looked at food. I now eat organic as much as I can, and adhere to a vegan diet. I juice at least once a day, and cleanse off sugars and other toxins on a regular basis. I’ve studied much and through word of mouth I discovered “the cancer diet” and “The Gerson Juicing” method. From those ideas I’ve learned to eat as many raw foods as possible. I’m currently working on a cookbook of the recipes I used and the methods I adopted as a lifestyle to accomplish such a task and how I’ve been able to loose all the weight I had gained. Living in Utah facilitated my outdoor activities: biking around downtown to do everything, I hike, and snowboard as much as I possibly can, and keep myself busy with physical and adventurous activities on a regular basis, feeling sick feels better out in nature. To deal with the loss of balance I began an intense regimen of yoga that changed my life, body, posture, strength and flexibility while intensifying my spirituality.

 

A for Attitude

I know that how I choose to deal with this issue is what I make of my reality. Having to put my academics on hold was not in the plan, but there are greater and bigger things I need to focus at the moment. Prioritizing my health is number one, and I’ve also been focusing a lot on my art. Currently I’m working on the illustrations for three children’s books I’ve written, and an illustrated art/photo-shoot series for a gallery here in Salt Lake City. I’m working on my music, and looking forward to recording a couple more songs in the next few weeks. I practice my reading and writing as much as I can to keep my mind sharp and my creativity high. The books I’m currently working on are a lot more than what I thought I bargained for. I love the challenge!

 

I’ve also created a website for myself with all I’m up to as I also continue with ArtStory, the non-profit organization I founded a couple of years ago. C.E.T.A YOU SHOULD WATCH THAT VIDEO! With ArtStory I get to travel throughout communities around the world, study and teach their history, culture and environment to its children and community members through neighborhood walks, art and music projects, historic preservation, recycling programs, and raise environmental consciousness for the over all growth and love of community. We then bring local artists to teach their craft to the children and collaborate on a large Art piece that reflects what they just learned as a gift to the community. It’s my dream job!

 

Those Around Me

I’ve had amazing angels in my life that have helped me through out this process. I couldn’t have done it with the many incredible people I’ve encountered and dear friends I have in my life. I am truly blessed. I know that I am well protected and loved, My Angel Mother watches over closely and I can feel her love <3 I also feel very much loved by those around me, those who put up with me when I don’t feel well, those who help me make my life easier just by being themselves. I am so incredibly thankful for the many angels who magically walk to the rescue when the going gets tough. This is an interesting and amazing time to be alive and see how in tune and connected people are with each other. I look forward to my many more life adventures ahead! My creator has me here for an amazing purpose…I love life, and so let me share a little how I live it… Here I am. Check out my website! It has been and amazing growing experience, I’ve learned much and look forward to the future. What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger…!

 

LET’S BEAT THIS!

 

       I have fought this with all I’ve had and I understand this is now an extreme situation that needs extreme measures. This is no joke and should be attacked with everything. I would like to continue homeopathy to help with the symptoms; food and oil supplements to ensure wellness; laser reduction treatment for the tumors, which is less invasive and has a much shorter recovery period than surgery; and surgery as a last resource. All of this has to be my lifestyle until I’m well. To insure treatment I need your help! The medical bills have been piling up and the rat race of school and work was too much for me to continue. Despite focusing on work, the time that I actually have where I feel well enough to do much is very limited and I am now in desperate need of treatment. Any little bit helps! 
I THANK-YOU! WITH ALL MY HEART <3

 

 

With your help, I will be able to continue my very strict diet, multiple supplements and vitamin injections, homeopathic remedies, very expensive laser treatment to shrink the tumors and possible brain surgery next year.

 

Any little bit helps!

So if you help me, you are NOT walking away empty handed! Depending on what you are able to contribute, you’ll receive one of my prints, a copy of one of my children’s books or an original paining or drawing!

 

 And most of all you give me a chance to live this amazing life we have; surrounded by some of the most incredible and loving people so that I can continue to make a difference in THIS World.

Thank you!
