When do you feel your most soulful? Some years ago, I met some wonderful friends who taught me about conscious breathing. To feel the miracle of life in every breath. So wonderful and simple!

I have a very big connection with my friends. We feel deep in our hearts when we are sad or we need to be heard. And the most curious thing, sometimes I feel a very deep connection with some people I don't know in person. It may be incredible, but it's true. As we are together through the distance. Very beautiful feeling.

Describe one of the most soul-opening moments of your life. One of the most soul-opening moments in my life is every time I practice Tai-Chi in nature, and every time I feel anything in silence with a friend. And, of course, breathing!

Where in the world have you felt the most in touch with your own soul? My neighbourhood's park. And by the sea. In these places, I find myself.

Describe one of the most soulful people you’ve ever known. I have a friend I met learning Tai-Chi. She's like my sister. She sees life as I do, and it's so easy to talk to her about my worries and feelings.

What qualities do you feel a soulful relationship has? For me, a soulful relationship has to have confidence. And friendship is very important for me. Love ourselves, and keep our own space. And of course, respect the other one's space. 
Also sensuality and tenderness. ♥ I've always thought we would have soulful relationships with people that would come and go in our lives, but the right ones would never leave our hearts. We would look at each other's eyes and it would be as if we were looking at each other's souls.

What do you feel your soul’s purpose is? I think my soul's purpose is to be myself, to love myself, and believe that I deserve to be loved. To learn that Love is the most important thing, the energy that moves the world. And then, express it to the people.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with us? Yes, thanks to everybody who's reading me, and to you too! It's an honor for me! Don't forget breathing, see everything as if you were a child, and Love, Love, Love!!!
