Back in Mexico, we have the tradition of celebrating “Día De Reyes” or Day of the Three Wise Men. This tradition takes place on the 6th of January where we eat Rosca de Reyes (a cake pastry) with hot cocoa and also on this day many kids receive gifts from “The Wise Men”. In parts of southern Mexico, this tradition is stronger than Santa Claus so many children expect to receive gifts on this day. What I remember the most about this day is that the “Wise Men” never brought toys to me and my brother, instead we would always wake up to books as gifts. My mother use to tell us that the Wise Men wanted us to have the gift of wisdom and for us to be open to a new world of knowledge, so when I received books it was always a magical experience because I knew a tiny world was there waiting to be read. Now that I have grown up and live in London, this tradition no longer takes place at home so I decided to revive this tradition in 2017.
I am very excited to announce that I will be hosting a giveaway today! I’ve partnered up with my friends at Hay House and we came up with a selection of books that will uplift your spirit this 2017. I have always loved books about new age philosophy, spirituality and self-love, and this year one of my resolutions is to get back on track with my spiritual life, live a healthier (both physically and mentally) life and ignite my light. 2016 has not been a great year for many, but that is what new years are for to open up new opportunities to start fresh and be able to direct your life to where your heart leads it.
I’ve read many of the titles on the selection and I can say I have found a new perspective in life and how to live it to the fullest. I’ve learned so much this last year (though some not in the best way) and I still know there is so much more to learn, but now I have more strength, more self-love and more openness to understand the lessons the universe is putting in my way.
I really hope that people understand the importance of paying attention and caring for our subtle world as we do for the real world to start appreciating and acknowledging that we are the creators of our lives and that we have the power to rise into our independent nature and have all of our dreams come true.
I know these books will help you guide you into a more prosperous life in all aspects and will help you shine your brightest.
So the dynamic of this giveaway will be really simple. You just have to tag two friends on my Instagram post. After that please fill the form at the end of this blog post on the embedded survey with your name, email, Instagram user account, country and the book you will like to receive. I will be contacting the winner by the 20th of January.
