(Poetry) Prayer to the Mother by Amina Rodriguez

I feel deeply troubled and a bit unsettled.

I feel strongly a pull in two directions.

Loving passionately and despising at once.

A reflection of what is out there around me

I ask the universe for the courage to dive within

I know the answers to all that ails me lies there

Something keeps pulling me away distracting me from myself my truth my own love. Continue reading

(Prose) My Nature Guided Self-Renewal by Amina Rodriguez

Work by Amina Rodriguez

My journey toward the divine source within me was inspired by a tree and only began in my 40s. I usually write poems​​ and other inspired writings as notes on my phone or in a journal.

(Meet Mago Contributor) Amina Rodriguez

I am rediscovering myself in my 40s and learning to align myself to the flow of nature. I spend as much time as possible out in nature grounding myself to mother earth who has been my main therapist, healer and comforter. I love taking pictures of birds and trees, I write poetry and I am in the early stage of writing a book about my journey within. I have simplified my life as much as possible so that I can focus on my own evolution in the hopes that I can assist in the much needed shift towards a more balanced humanity.
I am a mother of three remarkable young adults. Thanks to the influence of my daughter I became fully vegan and I am healthier than I have ever been as a result. I have a BA in Psychology from Florida International University but my most important education has come from trees. Also, I have recently discovered Kai Chi Do, a form of meditation in motion which has been a blessing in my life, I highly recommend it to anyone who is on a self-healing journey.
