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

Ho Ho Ho, it´s a mini- Gypsy-Christmas post

Hello lovely readers, fellow humans, friends, 2020-survivors and future 2021-thrivers,


with Christmas around the night-corner, I felt inspired to wish you all so much love, peace, contentment, and gratitude for the festivities. While I always feel that Christmas is a very jolly thing for some and a mixed bag of bitter-sweet vibes for many others, I can´t help but feel that there is always hope on the horizon, even in 2020. There are always many things to be grateful for, lovely (Christmas)-treats to be devoured, nostalgic songs to be listened to, and beautiful memories to be remembered as well as new ones to be created.



Thank you so much for your readership, friendship, and loyalty. A new post is finally in the works: a travel post with a very Venusian take on Bella Roma:) I hope you´ll thoroughly enjoy it.

I wish you all things comforting and soul-nourishing for this Christmas, and a great start to the brand-new 2021!

Much love from Spain,

your Gypsy mate

Ho Ho Ho – Welcome to the Gypsy Christmas show. Ahem post.

Hola y buenas dear friends, readers, fellow bloggers, people of the Internet!

What a year, what a ride around the sun hey? I remember starting this year of 2019 with the desire and intent to come more out of my shell and let my light shine, or to put into practice what much beloved teacher and writer Dr. Wayne Dyer used to say “Don´t die with your music still in you”.


Let´s reframe this into “Live and share your own songs, your own truth, your own way of perceiving the world” – I am always amazed as to the realization that no other being ever was, or ever will be, like another! Or, in the words of Dr. Suess Today, you are you. That is true. There is no one alive who is you-er than you.”


Every human being is so incredibly unique, irreplaceable, and valuable. You, my dear fellow blogger-mates, friends, and readers, are certainly special to me as I consider it a unique gift to be blessed with your time and connections. As a little thank you, I have come up with a melange of songs, and photos to gift you with a pinch of Christmas- joy (for those of you who celebrate) or just joy in general (there can never be enough of that).



The songs are connected to some of my background/ lifestory- cultures, cultures I´ll always feel deeply bonded to, and I would love to transmit some of their unique beauty to you, momentarily bridging the distance between us with music.


Spain- The Spanish song is a surprise – as I am singing it for ya. That´s pretty out there for me but I sure hope you´ll like it! The song is called “Jueves” (Thursday) from Spanish Band “La oreja de Van Gogh” (yep, that would be “Van Gogh´s ear” in English haha). It´s a sweet song about a love that could be, or a love that´s just starting to blossom.

You can listen to it here:



Germany – The German song I picked for you is called “Wunder geschehen” (Miracles happen) and is performed by a fabulous legend of a singer called Nena. The lyrics are especially uplifting and the whole song is just a treat!



Australia – The song I chose to represent the Aussie connection is a beautiful ode to those of our loved ones who aren´t physically present in our lives anymore – we surely do remember and miss them lots around these dates! The song is called “Choir” and is brought to life by epic Australian singer Guy Sebastian. It´s a hopeful tune, celebrating our loved ones lives´ and how fortunate we are to have spent time with them.


Lyrics to Choir by Guy Sebastian


A gypsy at heart will be back with weekly travel posts and audio stories (and something else….but that´s still in the creation-phase:)) in the first week of January 2020. I wish you a peaceful Christmas celebration – with lots of kindness (and if there is no one else, or no one kind enough, around – just choose to be kind to yourself:)), joy (in whichever way you can connect to it easiest) , hope, and Wunder/ miracles! Because they sure do happen:)



Back do you dear reader: How do you let your own light shine? What could you do to let your beautiful light shine more in the upcoming year of 2020? And: Would you feel up for sharing one of your favorite, uplifting songs from your culture in the comment section? Thanks so much and as always, would love to hear from you!
