The Law of Attraction with my ViSA

Standard

Staying calm and sending to the universe what I MAVIS desires I got what I want…

Yesterday

Arrived at the Argentina embassy and after checking my documents the embassy said I need to.extned my brazil visa since it expires on monday…. the stress of those words hit me in super shock and she said it takes 14 days before I can get my visa..😥😥😥I was worried and my energy changed to stress

Now I started to call everyone in rio and they all said getting extension is the most dredful event in rip especially because I don’t speak potuguese.

Now am actually in a panic mode.

So I rushed to the airport to try and enquire all I need to know to get my extension done.

Go there and it was packed. But at this point my body energy is changing gradually to where it should be..grateful to be a love state

Met a guy who helped me with smiles and with my smiles too…

Then I got to the counter…got all documents they need but 1 paper which I had at home…oh well my energy was changing again scary thinking after all the wait and help from this guy if I leave now am doomed….but I said I will leave and I will stay calm and tomorrow I will come back. Since they told me I need that paper to get my visa extended.

Got home super tired..
Open my bag and the paper I was looking for wad inside bag so all this while it was in my bag and I could have used it.

This morning 6am woke up with a smile… I am given a new white paper to draw my day

So I started…with smile all over my face. On our way to the immigration place I saw a beautiful rainbow… and I told Aasha the universe is telling me today will be awesome. Aasha looked at and said ok mommy.

Got to immigration and at 8am they open the door. The officer calls me into his office at the back where they process all the visa and said wait here. At 8:20am  he gave me my passport with my desired visa extension….now that is call the law of attraction in the making.

Now she said they usually take 14 days to process any visa

But she asked me to wait and she went to the back
1hour later she called inside to the back meet the consulate…with smiles on my face and my energy just pouring of love and positivity. We sat at the office with the consulate and he was so impressed with our family and what we are doing that he even took time to read our travel blog while I was comfortably sitting in his office.

Well here is the breaker….my visa will be ready tomorrow at 11am…yeap in 24hours I manifested everything that people said it cannot be done….I created and all with my EMOTIONS

Such an awesome awesome people at the Argentina embassy even though I did not speak potuguese or spanish. They welcomed us with love. Really grateful for all the team at the Argentina embassy for their patience and love for people like me who did not have a clue of the process due to language issues.

I am so grateful to you Marcus for showing me this path.

Oh and the lady at the embassy said tomorrow she will tell me all I want to know about Argentina and I am so grateful for her patience with me..I have made a friend with me being able to stay calm.

We all have in us the power to create…now you will get scared and panic it’s ok just know how to shift is the lesson here.

Brazil Exploration Continues

At 10am I arrived at the embassy with a shock from the lady she said you have your extension…wow!!!

Visit to Angra Islands

Standard

Today the kids and I went on an adventure worth sharing….

We woke up at 6am and went to our meeting point to meet up our Rio LLF’S  (Life Long Friends ) and we all got onto the bus….now that’s when the adventures really began….lol!!!

Our bus driver and his assistant drove us around our neighborhood which is ipanema for.a solid 2 hours picking up other clients like us who are also taking the trip.

Me and my friends at this point are pissed and annoyed since they told us nothing and just driving around circles. So basically a trip that would have taken us 2 hours if we had left from our pick up point but seem like our wish for that did not come true and the trip took is 6 hours since we left rip late and with super traffic on the way.

So from 7am we got to our boat at 1pm.
Oh and if you are wondering how we got our tickets…we got it from Etours rio and it’s R $160 for the whole trip including lunch.

Well the boat ride was nice and the islands are all beautiful. But our lunch did not come till 6pm. So my advice make sure you eat a large breakfast and take lunch with you if you decide to take this adventure when visiting rio.

Here are a few pictures of me and the kids and our day.

Raising kids with Freedom to Meet people

Standard

With our travels I have reliazed that our 6yr old is so bold and willing to speak up and out with strangers.

Today as he and I always have our mommy dates walking on the streets of ipanema. My done Mj 6yrs old just saw this man on the street drawing pictures.

As mj gets excited to see what the an is drawing he run to the man and ask him if he can have what he was drawing since mj says he wants to be a pilot when he grows up…so as the picture below will show my boy wanted a picture that will potray his future of being a pilot.

Hope you enjoy this pictures as much as I did watching the process unfold.

image

So he steps in front of the man and ask freely

image

Wish smiles the man hands him the picture he wanted. This man draws this pictures with crayons write there on the street.

image

And there he is…loving his new picture
And we gave the man some money which was not to pay for the picture but just give for the resin of giving.

Really nice experience….

Our first Experience inside a closed mall

Standard

So today as usual our super Dentist decides even though it’s a holiday in Brazil she will still.come to work just for us to check IMAHKÜS brace. Now.you understand why I call her super Dentist.

Now the icing on the cake is when we got to the mall where her office is the whole mall was closed completely. With lights our and escalators not working.  Even the mall doors all shut.

So they allowed us in. Like the movie night at the mesuem…well we call this day at the closed mall.

And as usual while we wait for our super dentist to come we sat on the floor while of course my kids decided to entertain me….

Here are a few pictures of our closed mall experience.

image

Inside the mall all by ourselves.. kind of creepy but fun

image

Modelling show at the closed mall…

She was serious about her modelling too

It’s turning time

Am all about creating memories for myself and my family and anyone who wants to join the fun. It takes a smile and a free mind to have all those things. Enjoy living…

2016 Gymnastics Qualifier in Rio

Standard

Today my kids and I went to spend our day watching the magnificence of human beings.

We went to the Olympics arena to watch the women artistic Gymnastics Olympics qualifying series for Rio 2016.

We had such an amazing time. Here are a few tips

We took uber and from ipanema to the location where most of the events will happen at is about 50min drive without any traffic.  And with uber it cost us only $13…Super cheap right.

If I was to take a normal taxi it would cost me about $40 this is because the drivers already start with a $4 base fare when I put my butt in the car…the ride has not even moved.

Well we could have taken the train…. but with my large family 4kids and me it’s actually cheaper to take the uber than the train. And I did not see any completed train stations around there. I did see buses but they will cost me more than uber also. So I say if you have a large crew about 4 persons just use uber.

Now am pretty sure during the actual events uber will double it’s fare because of scarcity but trust me it will still be cheaper than the taxi drivers since the drivers also slow down and try to catch every red light just to make more money off yoy.  But with uber they follow a route and it’s safe and very nice drivers.

Hope my tip will help anyone coming in August.

So best to stay either around Maracana stadium or Barra de Tijuca. And don’t let me even start talking about apartments during august. This people here are charging your life for a 7days stay….one guy said he wants $5,000 usd for a 2 bedroom apartment that looks disgusting….I laughed so hard. I and my kids will join the crew under the bridge and enjoy nature than to give my $5,000 to some greedy person who thinks he needs to build his life in 1 week. Lol!!!

Well be mindful when renting…these places are shabby and the prices they asking is not making any logical and economical sense. 

Now here are a few photos of me and my kids enjoying the beautiful Olympics Arena

That’s the building at night

Yeap he was there
