It was a normal day on July 9, 1988 – in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia.
A woman was about to bring a new life into this beautiful world. God blessed this universe with a new amazing human being.
After long hours in the hospital, Freddy Gandarilla Cabrera cried out loud for the very first time.
This is when my roller-coaster ride began.
My family was only perfect for a few years.
After a few years, everything began to crumble down like a building being demolished.
It started with the death of my full brother almost two years after being born. I was only 4 or 5 years old when he died. I don’t remember quite well.
But I do remember going to his funeral, and looking at him in his little coffin.
I was just a little kid.
All I remember is looking at him and thinking that he was sleeping.
I couldn’t really understand what was going on.
Then I would look at my mother with a look of “when is he going to wake up so we can go play?”.
His death affected me a lot growing up.
It was one of those things that hurts you very deeply inside, and you don’t even realize you have been hurt.
The biggest wounds in our life are the ones we are not consciously aware of.
The death of my dear brother was the beginning of the end.
Or so I thought .… (as you continue reading you will find out why)
My parents separated soon after my little brother’s death. They both went through some horrible times. And if I told you every detail, you would probably feel sorry for me.
And I do not want you to. Not right now, at least.
I’m just sharing a little bit of the beginning of my life – so you can get inspired by me.
I come from a broken home.
I went through a lot of pain.
I cried so many nights.
I felt lost most of my time growing up.
I felt alone even when surrounded by loved ones.
My life was just broken all around.
I moved a lot growing up.
The biggest transitions I have made were when I moved to Madrid, Spain – and when I moved from there to Northern Virginia, USA.
It was not easy leaving everything behind.
I mean, I was already feeling hurt and lost in Bolivia.
Then I had to say goodbye to all of my family and friends, to move to Spain.
It was really really hard for me.
I was depressed for about 3 months in Spain.
But, I started to settle down, feel better, make new friends, and start a new life there.
After a long while ……
I had to leave everything behind, one more time.
This time I had to move to the United States. I was about 15 years old when this happened.
I had to learn a new language too. And live with the new family my dad was building.
Things did not go smooth for me here. And for a lot of my teen years, I was all over the place.
I was a complete mess.
I was a loser. I’ll be honest.
I was hanging out with the wrong people. I got into trouble with the law a lot.
I was skipping school almost daily.
I was getting involved in gangs.
I found myself in the wrong place, at the wrong time, many times.
I ran away from home a few times.
I slept in the streets for a while. During winter.
I was just a lost kid in the streets.
One thing I am thankful for, is that I never went to jail for more than one day.
I was not a mean kid. I was just a lost kid hanging out with bad influences.
I didn’t really have much family support. I had to become independent at a very young age.
And, by the time I turned 18 years old, I started to change my mindset.
I started to think about life.
I started to think about God.
I grew in a catholic family. Very religious family.
I would go to church very often with my grandmother.
But, many events in my life led me to get lost again and forget about God for a while.
There was even a time when I started to question God.
I wanted answers.
I wanted the real truth about life and spirituality.
I had suffered so much already.
So, my entire life has been a phenomenal journey on the search for the right answers. And also a journey to accomplish success in my life.
When I turned 22 years old, I really started to get into learning as much knowledge as I could.
Did I tell you that I dropped out of high school too?
I knew I was a very smart kid – I just chose to be a loser for a long time.
I did get my GED Certificate, though.
I passed that test the first time I took it – and without even studying.
That proved to me that I was very smart and that I can be someone successful in life.
I just needed to get myself together and work on my future.
So, when I turned 22, I started to study.
I was a miserable construction worker by this time. And that is all I knew and could do to make money.
I had other tedious jobs before construction. I got stuck in construction because it was making me the most money at the time.
So, I spend a few years being a depressed construction worker.
My entire family had left back to my country right before I turned 22. And I decided to stay here, because I knew I could build a better future for myself in this country.
I say I was a depressed construction worker because I was all alone in the entire country.
It was really tough to realize that reality.
I would spend a lot of time painting and working on things at a construction site, quietly.
I would read during lunch hours.
Then, back to thinking.
And more thinking.
When I would get home, I would go to the internet and do research on many topics.
One of my favorite topics at that time was the human brain.
I started to study the human body.
I got very interested in the human body, our brain and the human psychology. So much that one of my first blogs was about memory improvement and the brain.
This led me to start studying science a lot more, and this caused me to question God a lot.
I got lost in the science world for a while.
But, I kept going forward.
I kept digging and digging, for more truth.
I started learning more about spirituality.
Then, I started learning about Quantum Physics.
And I married Spirituality with Quantum Physics.
This combination shocked my life completely.
I started to put pieces of the puzzle of life, together.
I started to have many breakthroughs in my life. And I still am.
It took me long years to understand everything.
All while trying to get results online with blogging and internet marketing.
It also took me long years to accomplish my goals online.
My journey, so far, has been an insane roller-coaster ride and a mix of everything I just talked about here.
Blogging, internet marketing, quantum physics, spirituality, family, humanity, success, abundance, etc.
I suffered so much during this crazy ride. But, I learned so much thanks to all of that suffering as well.
So, I am very grateful for every single thing that has happened in my life, so far. Even the death of my dear brother.
I believe his death was actually the beginning of my spiritual journey.
I now know that everything is a blessing in life. Even the most horrible events.
Life’s got a divine plan from God.
I did not understand this divine realization for so long. And now I do.
Everything in this life has already been planned. You cannot change your destiny, but you can change the way you live until you fulfill it.
I had a dream to live the life of my dreams thanks to blogging and internet marketing.
And, at the same time I wanted to know as much as I could about life, success, the human race, God, and the Universe.
You see, I grew up poor – and that is why I wanted to succeed in my life no matter what. I wanted to be financially free for the rest of my life, and I knew blogging and internet marketing were my ticket there.
I was so committed to make it happen no matter what it took and how long it took. Even when I made really bad decisions.
Decisions that took me through hell and back.
My journey to success online was one of the toughest journeys ever!
There is just so much more I can tell you about my life’s journey. But, I do not want to make this a very long blog post.
Maybe I’ll write a book one day.
Now you know a little bit about my journey so far.
I wanted to share this with you, today, so you can get very inspired by my journey.
Through these words, you will realize how powerful you are.
Just look at where I am today.
I am special – just like YOU ARE.
I was going to say that I am no one special here, but that just doesn’t sound right to me.
I know we are all special.
We are all children of one divine God.
A God that allowed darkness to be present in this world, in this life – for one purpose.
For you to remember that you have light within you.
The human race has been sleeping in the darkness for so long.
Because we forgot who we are.
But, we are waking up now.
We are starting to remember who we truly are, again.
It has been thousands and thousands of years.
But we are waking up now.
September 27th, 2015.
It is the beginning of a new divine journey.
I am here to inspire you and tell you that you can walk with me – to abundance.
To a new beautiful world.
A new beautiful universe.
We are going back to our divine home.
You can only take this journey with me – if you feel the energy I am sending you while you read this.
I’m on a new journey in my life.
Because you are too.
(learn more about this new journey happening here)
My goals in my life are now coming into fruition.
I thought I was after the money all this time. Now, I see that I was after something else. Something greater, something better. Something divine.
My mission in my life is to help you remember that you are on the same mission as I am.
So we can walk together.
So we can awaken others.
So we can walk through the divine door to the divine light.
And shine our light upon others – so they can follow us to our destiny.
This is the beginning of a new journey.
A new chapter.
Not just for me, but for you too.
And we need to lead by example.
I know you feel the power within you.
I know you can relate to my journey here.
Blogging has changed my entire life – because it took me through paths of knowledge I would never imagine I would.
You might be thinking; “what does blogging have to do with this spiritual journey?”.
Blogging was a gateway to a journey of research, questions, and divine knowledge, for me.
It was what I needed to get on this divine path.
And well, most of the people who support me and follow me – would really like to learn about blogging and internet marketing, so they can live the life of their dreams too.
And I also know that they want the real truth about life. Just like I did.
All of this together – is what has changed and it is still changing my entire life. And I know it will change your entire life too.
I was blessed with the talent of learning and teaching, very well.
So why not do my best to give you the best?
It is my duty to teach you what you want to know. To help you accomplish your goals in life. And also online.
Blogging and Internet Marketing were a blessing in my life. And I know it is a blessing in your life too. I know it in my heart.
This is why I share my journey with you. Because it might just be the last piece of inspiration you need, to make it happen!!
I wanted to succeed in blogging but I also wanted to succeed spiritually. You know what I mean?
I always wanted to know everything.
I’m one of those guys who questions everything.
But, today, I will surrender all of my knowledge, and all of my remaining questions about life.
I will surrender all of my understanding – to step into pure divine FAITH.
Faith about our future as spiritual beings.
Faith about the new life that lies ahead.
I do not need to know everything.
We do not need to know everything.
All we need to do is trust, and have pure divine faith.
Because, this is the beginning of a new divine journey.
A beautiful journey to abundance.
A new world is starting.
And an old world is ending.
Step into divine faith with me.
And let’s manifest the life of our dreams …… NOW!
Because it is inevitable.
Because it is our destiny.
Because this is the beginning of a new journey.
I love you.
I believe in you.
I appreciate you.
You have divine greatness inside of you, and you can feel it.
You know it, and I know it.
I am you, and you are me.
One Love. One Universe. One God.
You now feel inspired – and ready to accomplish your dreams in life.
If I can do it, you can do it even better!!
Use everything that I’m teaching here to make your dreams in life a reality. Because you can, and because I believe you will do it.
