Aloha amigos: Gypsy News ’22 + on the sanctity of souls


Aloha dear readers, supporters, and friends both near and far,


I did not see it coming. And I bet, you didn’t either, right?

All the collective crazy vibes of topsy turvy, of collective emotional tornadoes galavanting around all the way back since March 2020… And while I was, just like all of you, riding the ocean waves of how that energy of disruption and profound change manifested in my own life, I chose to take a step away from blogging for the last 6 months. Sometimes it’s healthy to step away from whatever storms are causing mayhem, and to focus on whatever brings solace, serenity, and sanity in these times of contorted mirrors, is what I found. And yet, I have missed connecting with the wonderful souls within the WordPress community: with your heartfelt pieces of writing and kind comments.



Back in November, I wanted to see whether the idea of creating a membership- platform would work – it didn’t, lol. So from now on, and in true artist-spirit façon, I will post whenever the creative Gods grant me both the inspiration and the pull to publish, and I welcome any loving interest and support with open arms:)


To start, I am re-publishing the post I created back in November – “Bewitching Yangshuo part II: Loving and longing along Li river“. Think mesmerizing landscapes, deep and intriguing insights into the fascinating Chinese culture, humor, and of course, one of the most important topics ever – love. Ah, and snake-booze. Shouldn’t leave the most important thing for last hey? 😛 Snake booze aside for a moment – soul love, as in love that transforms you, that captivates you to a never before experienced degree, and that has the potential to surmount all obstacles, takes center stage here. For such deep soul love, or really any kind of more substantial love, to manifest, it seems imperative to recognize the uniqueness and, more than that, the sanctity of each soul.


I know it might seem idealistic to ponder this in the current times, but I invite you to consider: How precious is every single minute spent with another soul you cherish? How special is it, if another being chooses to open their heart to yours, after having braved the human journey with all its challenges and heartbreaks for a while? And I am not only talking romantic love here but all types of love: the love for our friends, for our animal friends, for Spirit…



It’s time we cherish each other’s preciousness to a much stronger degree and leave behind any behaviors that disrespect the sanctity and amazingness of each soul on this beautiful planet… For more inspiration on this plus a fabulous Chinese adventure-time all mixed into one, please head to Bewitching Yangshuo, part II: Loving and longing along Li river and in-joy!


Much love,

Maria Elena 💚/ A Gypsy at Heart

A Gypsy at Heart reloaded: News in a nutshell and VIP changes


Dear readers, supporters, content-scanners, spammers, and friends,


Hopefully, everyone is well and in good spirits, without ingesting too many spirits.

As you might have noticed it’s been a bit quiet here for a while, so I wanted to take the time to say “hello again” (cue song by Adele)

and keep you in the loop as to what my Gypsy heart has envisioned for this blog and community for the upcoming months!

Are ya ready? Oki dokey, don’t be mopey, here we go, let the good news flow:


Ready for some warming news? Image via Pixabay

Winter is coming. Nope, that was Game of Thrones. Ah well. Next-level-stories from around the globe are coming! In time for Northern Hemisphere Winter, too.


First of all, I have a lot of fabulous new stories in the pipeline: Of an astral-traveling Hindu priest I got to meet at a vegan hotspot in Ubud, and another one, whom I got to teach about Yoga and meditation and who invited me to a private tour of his family temple, on the island of the Gods.


There will be tales of dancing dervishes and arriving in a snowstorm in thongs/flip-flops in Istanbul. Of visiting a sandalwood fabric, getting up close and personal with koalas, and learning from an original Crocodile Dundee- crocodile-wrestler-meets-Spiritual-Teacher in Down Under.


A date with a dolphin is a rarity, always extra-special and filled with joy – you get to… you’ll find out soon:)

Of swimming with dolphins and exploring mind-blowingly beautiful limestone cliffs in Portugal, and of witnessing Scream-mask-clad Qatari on their national holiday processions in Doha. Plus many more stories, including the best insider tips on exploring Southern Spain and much, much more.
