What if you knew deep down that you could never go wrong?

That the universe has a perfect plan for you that will never fail?

That you can trust life to take you exactly where you need to be, at perfect time?

Imagine this: complete trust. Trust so profound, that you will never again have a doubt in your mind about the path you’re on.

A trust so complete that no matter what comes your way, you’ll know it’s here for a reason.


So deep that there will be no space in your mind for fear.

What would you do? How would you live your life?

Imagine this.

Now, get out there and live.

About Rachel Brathen

Rachel is a yogi on a world tour. Born and raised in Sweden, she currently resides in the beautiful island of Aruba where she is busy teaching yoga at a resort in the mornings, coordinating retreats at noon, taking her three somewhat crazy dogs to the beach to keep up with the surf in the afternoon and trying to survive as a vegan (where no vegetables grow!) in the evenings. She firmly believes that life is not black or white – it’s black and white and blue and yellow with rays of pink and sparkle in between. You can teach yoga and still be a party animal. Meditate and ignore your spending problems. Be vegan and eat too much chocolate. Have a Swedish passport and live in the Caribbean. You can do anything, as long as it’s you! You can find Rachel on the beach, probably practicing her Astavakrasana, or on

    doesn't this depend on one's concept of the what is included in the perfect plan?

    love the freedom to express ourselves! this is mine! (rachel! i think my love found me!)

    dear love on the rocks,

    love at at distance. it provides a certain perspective that one does not receive when one deals with the "real" day to day.
    being emotionally attached to someone that is present in your life everyday can actually depreciate the value you keep for each other
    it is so refreshing to have the opportunity to miss someone
    it is a pleasure to make the most of your words, so that there is the reassurement that, despite the distance,, i belong to you and you are also mine.
    perhaps, i am secure enough to miss you
    maybe that is the true definition of trust
    it is not a trust based on faith but a trust based on choice

    you are free
    you are free, everyday
    so am i
    you can trust me because thought of seeing you again
    eclipses all other encounters

    i am not jealous and
    i can release myself enough to love you, despite the distance

    i am so thankful for my ability to love myself enough to love you

    until we meet again
