Why Alelisima? (Ah-le-lee-seema) Because I like the idea of adding a superlative to my name so I can be very, really, extremely, super, ultimate. I long to be the maximum expression of myself and I love facilitating processes for others to do the same.
My biography is in constant movement. As I embrace all of my parts, I am able to tell new stories about myself. As I learn to honor the truth of who I am, I am able to create my own movie. Accepting that everything is continuously changing and that I can reinvent myself at every step allows me to walk more freely.
Within myself lives a cast of characters with very different personalities. They’re all very opinionated and they have very clear ideas on what the next chapters should be like. Sometimes this is very entertaining and sometimes it gets a bit intense. And since I’m the director of this play I try to keep them all occupied with an ever changing script. And what can I say? They are all fairly nice even the critics and the villains. After all, they are all facets of this crystal by which I see the world I inhabit.
I truly love being a human being and learning about the mysteries that come with being alive on this earth. Since I was a kid I had a great interest in the esoteric and spiritual but always from a practical and rooted place. That is why I try to weave creative and playful practices to the dense and at the same time intangible experiences. I like to think that I am the bridge that unites the invisible with the visible. Standing in the middle with signs and a suitcase with everything that could help you cross successfully.
For those of you who enjoy biographical details here’s a little bit about my life. My name is the Spanish name for the Matthiola Incana flower (I just refuse to call it stock flower). If you would like to hear how to pronounce it you can check out this classic song and listen while you read. I was born in the beautiful town of San Carlos de Bariloche in the Argentine Patagonia. I only lived there for a brief period of time but its profound lakes, majestic mountains and deep forests left a big imprint in my soul.
I grew up in Buenos Aires, a city that gave me friends as solid as rocks, all the bookstores a bibliophile could ask for, rock and roll, the esotericism of the santerías (Argentine for of the nineties and it also taught me what saudade really means when I left her in 2001 to move to the US.
Adapting to living in the United States was not easy to say the least but here I had the opportunity to study all those esoteric subjects I love so much. I learned more about Tarot, I studied creativity coaching, ancient Irish teachings on working with ancestors and healing, flower essences, and a bit about herbalism. As you can see I’m an avid student and I love learning. So if you are wondering what I’m studying these days I’m taking an astrology course and a course in emotional biodecodification as well as practicing Italian folk magic.
I have created this space to share all the tools and practices that help me navigate this existence with grace, courage and humor. We all deserve to travel this journey with ease and we have the ability to do it with grace and I'm just standing on the bridge with a sign indicating the most amusing and healing way to get to the other side.
