Enjoy my art as you read. 'Believe' one of a kind original art belt buckle by Anna Pereira

When I started to really figure out what I wanted in life, I realized I didn’t know what I wanted even more so than before. What I mean by this is, what I thought I wanted and what brought me what I wanted, fundamentally, were two different things. I thought I knew what to look for in a relationship, I had no idea. I thought I knew what success was, again, I had no idea. I thought I knew what happiness was, yet again, had no idea.

Once I started to pray, it was a journey. I began to pray about problems; Why do I have to go through this or that crisis, dilemma or ‘learning experience’. Why me? 

In my next ‘prayer phase’ I started to get inspirations and then began praying for the things I thought I wanted. That lasted a while too… like a few years… Then a momentus shift came. The life I had, had up until that time was one disappointment after another… in events, people and myself for making the wrong choices. I see now that I had to go through those events to get to where I am… But getting back to this ‘shift’… It hit me one day… STOP. Just stop. Stop wanting, stop asking. Too many questions … too many needs…too much trying to make sense. Just be thankful and then the answers will come. Appreciate more. Have gratitude. This was amazing to me. Once I broadened my needs to be something as simple as ‘I just want pure unlimited happiness in my life’ … BOOM! That was it.

The ‘shift’ I experienced allowed me to change the way I prayed. I began to pray for a happy relationship asking for a good, honorable man who loves me completely (and who is easy on the eyes 😉 ). I asked to feel the success that I know I deserve. I asked to be able to manifest joy in myself and other people. I asked for a feeling of calm and comfort as I am guided on my path. I asked for my relationship to be like a ‘team’ that my partner and I work together and help each other to be the best we can be. Do you know what? I have all that and more.

Life is a journey, and for the sake of keeping this short (I can go on and on) I will stop here. Just believe that you can be inspired, live in Joy, Love, Abundance and on the path to fulfillment. Just listen to what you are being told. Stop trying to fill yourself with what you think you want or ideals. Pray and listen. You will find your path. Believe.

Being an artist and entrepreneur with a passion for my art work, fashion and business, trying to make it… was a real struggle. I remember when I felt so alone. I mean REALLY alone. With no one to trust, no one in my personal life to support me … I didn’t know what direction to go in.  I really was in a dismal place. One day (around when I was 31) I was inspired to start praying.

I was always one to fear the hereafter and watched my step to never do ‘real’ wrong, but, to put my total trust and faith into God while I am alive and breathing was a whole different ball game. To look to Him for guidance and my path … that was a true test of my faith.

I was raised Catholic, but do not practice it so I felt kind of strange … at first … but once I started to make prayer a habit, I needed my daily prayer session to make it through the day. That time I had with my rosary was meditative and enlightening. For all the years I had let pass without  prayer and concentrating my energy to manifest divine blessings – as I look back now – was such a wasted time in my life.

I have been lucky, yes. I have lived a life full of many experiences (My accountant says ‘when you write your book I want the first copy.’)  But if I knew back then what I know now and how wonderful and blessed I am, I could have carried this happiness with me on a daily basis instead of suffering for so many years….Why didn’t I do this sooner? Well, I guess you have to go through it to get to it… right?  True… Life IS the process of living… but why not make it the best daily life you can? For yourself … for those in your life … for the sake of the world.

Again, as I mentioned before, the way I pray is a ‘hodge podge’ of Catholic, Spiritually, Universal Divine Love Energy … I can’t really describe it but what I believe and how I feel, feels right with me. In my heart, spirit and soul.

So do it today. Start to pray… In your own way. Make it as simple as ‘Thank You’. That’s a prayer. Have gratitude for your blessings. This is the BEST prayer you can utter. Once you show respect for your blessings, you will be blessed again and again. I know this for sure.

Here is another one of my original works. Enjoy!

I love this inspirational belt buckle! We are all blessed and should be grateful for those blessings. I know I am 🙂
