Con los ojos miramos…con el cerebro vemos

There is a substantial difference between LOOK AND SEE, hear and listen…PAY ATTENTION, we are going to analyze this. What we see is not the REALITY but rather the ILLUSION created by the brain. So far it should be understandable for everyone. Let us go a step further. What would you say if I were to tell you, that the illusion created by your brain is made up by THE RECORDED EXPERIENCES previously stored in it?

We look with the eyes…but we see with the brain

In order to protect us and as part of the evolutionary process, our brain moves a step ahead to recognize images or similar situations recorded in the past and in a blink preceding and foreseeing the potential situations we could face or come across with…You know what I am talking about, don´t you? Our favorite human hobby is thinking in advance the outcomes and CONTROL them, or at least believe we do.

Let us go back to the above paragraph and to the ATTENTION. If I look at an object or a person, even though I use my eyes, this does not necessarily mean that I am seeing that. I can have my physical organs, the eyes, staring at something, while my mind is in   reality fantasizing and enjoying the delicious, tasty apple pie on top of the table.   This is how we eat with our eyes before doing it with the stomach, as an old proverb says.

We see with the eyes but the VISUAL PERCEPTION does not stop there, on the contrary it only starts here. The physical eye PERCEIVES and the brain DECODES those supposed and already known realities.  The brain works as THE THIRD EYE, or the creative centre of a NEW REALITY.

Believe it and feel it, then you are able to create it

If we can re-live past experiences over and over and make them stronger through those emotions we have associated with them, in the same way we could CREATE our FUTURE in a free and mindful way, describing every single detail and every single scene simply by adding to that, emotions that agree with our feelings. The more I can see it in my brain and the more I can focus on it, the more familiar it will seem; so much that I will be able to RECOGNIZE IT THROUGH MY MENTAL EYE, once I have perceived it through my physical eyes.

It is very exciting and just a matter of practice; if you are able to BELIEVE IT AND FEEL IT, then you are able to CREATE IT.

If you really want to achieve it, it is only a matter of patience and perseverance. If you are bored with yourself and with the same story, here you have the formula; no more excuses, apart the ones you want to make. This is what we call GROWTH AND DECISION, everything else is just blah, blah, blah…same old story.

Do you carry on watching it from the barrier or do you dare to create with courage a NEW LIFE?

I can assure you that our central computer is able to create much more than what we can possibly imagine.

There is so much to live  and  create

I encourage you to face your FEARS, to overcome them…feel them; in the worst scenario it could simply be a trial and error´s experience. What do you have to lose, apart from the old recording repeating themselves over and over to make our life difficult and repetitive?

There is so much to live  and  create. Come on, take your pencil and your rubber, DO NOT CONFORM AND PUT YOUR IMAGINATION TO WORK, let your mind flow freely, let it be creative and let it fly, be the ARCHITECT OF YOUR BEST DREAMS. Train your mind so that it will be able to recognize your masterpiece…and when you are ready to open your eyes and your arms to receive it…only then you will feel how your third eye is opened to see and create the PHYSICAL MANIFESTATION OF YOUR DREAMS.

This is what we call MIRACLES and we do not realize that they are all around us, at all times

SEE TO BELIEVE IT OR CREATE TO SEE IT?

The choice is served. 🧡

Y de repente… la familia crece

Today´s episode is not about any news in the papers of me getting pregnant at fifty…even though in these times we are experiencing stranger events than this. 

What I am going to talk about and share with you today, makes me very happy; it is the full ACCEPTANCE of the presents that we receive, in the way we receive them, all of them, with all their wrappings and they are all perfect. I thought I had almost managed to cut, in a healthy way, the ATTACHMENTS ‘bonds with my sons and accepted that each one lives his own life as I live mine; cutting with love that umbilical cord with a nostalgic smile, looking at the present and saying loudly “now life is giving me that present of FULL MATURITY, a valued treasure, so great that sometimes we find difficult to enjoy it… the FREEDOM life offers us seems to be heavier than lead…and now, without expecting it, we have been once again all reunited together.

And suddenly …the family grows

Well, in these last days, we have passed from being only OSCAR AND I, to be Pablo, my younger son who has come back from his Erasmus; Javier, my eldest son and my feline grandchild Alfonso…Clearly this is what has inspired the title of today´s post.

I am immensely GRATEFUL to the Universe and to God to fill me with the most wonderful present I could have ever received: LOVE, all in capital letters, for myself, for my partner, for my sons; I am able to know how to digest the river of emotions I am experiencing in these hours with MASTERY AND EQUILIBRIUM.

I have learnt my lesson

What a precious opportunity to reinforce those bonds through INDEPENDENCE AND RESPECT. Those seeds of PERSEVERANCE AND FAITH have grown wonderfully, they just needed the right time to do it…!  There is a perfect time for everything. When the student is ready, the master appears. And only then one can appreciate and understand fully the MESSAGE…all the conditions need to be there, all the ACTORS need to play their roles with ease in the vast stage of life to nurture the spectators and to be nurtured back. There are winds bringing words that say “I HAVE LEARNT MY LESSON…” Now I can turn the page with delicacy and start a new day, a new experience, another book…Simply enjoy these days when… SUDDENLY THE FAMILY GROWS…how different is now this LIVING TOGETHER if compared with those past years, when we were living anchored  to those rooted SUBCONSCIOUS PROGRAMMINGS, to those blames, to that pain, to the victimism, like if we were in a game of cards where everyone plays unable to follow the same rules…As you can see the message is clear and simple!

But as it often happens, there was the need to take some distance, to hold that position, to heal the wounds, to respect the AWAKENING ´s process that everyone needs to then be able to enjoy its delicious sweet. Too good to be true, is it not? Of course not!…Can we have everything? Yes indeed! I ALLOW MYSELF, and it will take place spontaneously, when you least expect it, but at the same time with absolute and striking certainty that is going to happen; just leave the  HOW AND WHEN in the hands of the universe and the wise creator

Grow in a healthy love

The wisdom has grown at the same time the family has; it got together for a few days, for a moment, it does not matter how long for; ten days to meet again; we are the same but not really, our essence is the same, but we are stronger and remastered. 

We are a more advanced and updated version of ourselves, we have managed to GROW IN A HEALTHY LOVE, drawing our limits and putting together the pieces of the FAMILIAR CHAIN with care and patience. As a result of it we shine and our brightness goes well beyond our embraces, our kisses, our sweet words, it goes through the physical and it embraces you in its energy; it expands, you can breathe it, share it. It is a familiar chain that unites, that brings together, a strong grasp, but it does not imprison.

000

I come back to my earthly part so that I can carry on putting the washing machine …for a few days…SUDDENLY…THE FAMILY GROWS.  🧡

Esos círculos de luz llamados CHACRAS

We reach the SUPERNATURAL from the PHYSICAL, one does not exist without the other…a perfect marriage, where the body is BROUGHT TO LIFE by the SOUL.  I consider the CHAKRAS like projections of lights or powerful beams of ENERGETIC LIGHT, located all along the spine. They are like a river, springing out and transforming into an energetic stream, in close harmony with theS,BODY´S GLAND essential for our vital experience. They have and contain some kinds of connecting threads with very valuable information about our INTERNAL BALANCE.

Those lights ‘circles called Chakras

I associate them to those copper wires inside electric cables; you do not see them but you feel them, intangible but very real like LIGHT AND ELECTRICITY; it is a source of transformation that gives us reliable information about our PHYSICAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL AND SPIRITUAL THERMOMETER. It illuminates our journey, like a path signaled by candles or torches, towards a space that cannot be trapped in our hands and can only be felt by the HEART…It leads us to a space of SELF AWARENESS, a place you had never imagined before.

We are powerful ENERGETIC REPEATERS, vibrating at different FREQUENCIES. Once we have reached a higher level of awareness, we are able to be more in charge of our life and we realize with more clarity that we are the architects of it. The COMPROMISE with ourselves becomes greater.

Focus on what your physical senses bring to you

Now let us sit down to PERCEIVE, to SENSE…focus on what your physical senses bring to you…Let us enter that space of STOP THINKING AND BUSTLE. The more you practice the more you become aware that the speed of your blood, your breathing …and all your organs self-regulate LIKE AN ORCHESTRA.  You cannot see it, but you can hear it.  If we were to connect all the different functions to monitors, we would be able to measure and prove it, in a medical and scientific way.

Try to imagine what we will be able to do if we were to access, with our conscious mind, one by one the EIGHT ENERGETIC CENTRES, running along our body in a perfect order. From here we can activate the correct and appropriate HORMONE´S PRODUCTION, transmitting the PROPER NEURONAL INFORMATION through the DISTRIBUTION´S CHANNELS, which is then passed to the whole body. A CHAIN REACTION organized with absolute perfection. 

Imagine every chakra like a mini cerebral computer, containing some type of information and connected through a specific cable to our central brain. If we manage to obtain a BALANCED ENERGETIC LEVEL among those mini brains and our central computer, we are destined to ALLOW OURSELVES to live the best life we can possibly imagine.

Eight energetic centres

Every single mini brain has its own autonomy, but they are all connected to each other. Think about a building with many floors. The floors in the middle depend on the base and the top ones on those in-between; they are all interconnected to each other. THE EQUILIBRIUM OF THE ENERGETIC FORCES is the key for the correct sustainability and for the perfect functionality. 

Let us start from the base, THE FIRST CHAKRA, explaining it shortly and easily. It is located in our sexual organs. It gives you all your CREATIVE or PRIMORDIAL POWER. When this centre is balanced, it shines with its own light, reinforcing your IDENTITY.

THE SECOND CHAKRA, moving upwards, can be found behind your belly button, one finger below it. It includes the reproductive organs, the pancreas, the colon and the lower shoulders. Just be aware that every ascendent chakra includes some part of the previous one, is connected to it, to its functions, to its glands and to its ENERGY.

The second chakra is associated with eating, digestion, elimination of useless elements  from the body and energetic transformation.  In charge of your cultural aspects, social and personal relations…it ASSIMILATES AND RELEASES information. Its well functioning  translates into SELF CONFIDENCE.

After this, we come to the THIRD CENTER, located in the pit of the stomach or SOLAR PLEXUS.  Deeply associated with WILLPOWER, COMPETITIVENESS, POWER and CONTROL. It controls the stomach, the spleen, the small intestine, the liver, the bladder, the kidneys and the adrenal glands (these glands activate automatically the fight or flight response, as soon as we perceive or believe we are facing an imminent danger)

A step higher and we are in the FOURTH CHAKRA, situated behind the breastbone and  governed by the HEART. It takes care of all cardiac and pulmonary functions, the thyroid glands, essential for the correct functioning of our autoimmune system. This fourth chakra represents the borderline between the other three previous chakras, associated with our animal part and tracing the beginning of our more SUPERNATURAL AND SPIRITUAL part. We get closer to our more spiritual part, passing from EGOISMS TO ALTRUISM. We reach the focus of our SOUL, where we find noble emotions that transport us to the horizon of our divinity.  A good vibrational equilibrium of this centre opens the doors to the feelings of LOVE, GRATITUDE, COMPASSION AND INSPIRATION.  We are more predisposed to cooperate with others and totally satisfied with WHO WE ARE.

The FIFTH CENTRE of light and energy is in the throat. It runs the functioning of the THYROIDAL and PARATHYROIDAL GLANDS, the salivary glands and the neck´s tissues. It is associated with the ability to EXPRESS YOUR OWN TRUTH through voice and sounds. When this centre is balanced, it creates love naturally. You feel in harmony with your energy and you express this through THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS.

We have reached the SIXTH CHAKRA, based in the space between the nape of the neck and the crown of the head; let us close our eyes and visualize this space inside our head. Imagine that you can find it in the middle of your brain, a bit backwards. It rules the PINEAL OR HOLY GLAND. When this space opens, is like a very powerful aerial, able to cover a vast spectrum. We can connect and DISCOVER frequencies that go well beyond those five senses we are used to count on. We connect with our EXTREMELY POWERFUL WISDOM. It is strongly related to the CIRCADIAN RHYTHM which regulates our sleep wake cycles. Through our meditation we can activate the pineal gland which can take us to unimaginable places, very close to extra sensorial parallel realities. We can see well beyond this world with such a CLARITY OF MIND, that we have never experienced before.

Moving further up we reach our SEVENTH CENTRE, right in the middle of our head.  Here lies the PITUITARY GLAND or THE MASTER GLAND. From here spring out an energetic waterfall towards all the others. If in the previous chakra we could perceive our divine part, in this seventh we elevate our power further, to embrace fully THE DIVINITY WE ALL HAVE INSIDE.  When this centre is balanced, we are HARMONY in expansion.

We have now reached the top, the EIGHTH CHAKRA, two fingers over our head; this is the only one which is not in our physical body and yet is the connection between OURSELVES AND THE UNIVERSE.  When this centre is activated, we are open to new revelations and inspirations, coming directly from the COSMOS.  It is like a space opened to the UNIVERSAL ENERGY, that we all share as part of the same creator or the same creation.

ALIGN YOUR ENERGY. I ALIGN MY ENERGY. WE ARE ONE. THANKS.  🧡

Ese oscuro objeto de deseo

This is the greatest CERTAINTY…it contains all UNCERTAINTIES, a step sometimes firm and sometimes trembling toward the unknown, either attracting us or representing our deepest fear…Will I be able to…?  Is it sure or am I wrong…? Will I be up to the task as he/she has done or do they have some advantages for this or that reason, something I am totally unaware of…who knows?

That dark object of desire

This is how we go from 0 to 100 or from 100 to 0…In the first case we jump into the vast sea of our ABILITIES, in the other, we awake that EMOTION, rising from our most PRIMARY INSTINCT, that creates a feeling of INABILITY or insufficiency, a desire about what other people is or have; something starts to climb out, that something we know as ENVY.

This emotion is very much rejected, considered pejorative or negative…THAT WRONG PERCEPTION, that desire of having what other people have, shows our darkest side…But do not panic…! As I usually say, if we choose to see the positive side of it, that will awake our desire to grow and BELIEVE in ourselves, we will pull our sleeves up and move forward with CORAUGE towards our EVOLUTION.

The way I see you, is a faithful reflection of how I see myself

Let us add a pinch of HUMILITY, another of ADMIRATION AND RECOGNITION to that desired object or subject; the result will be more than fruitful.  Our hearts will fill up with happiness, we will genuinely applaud OTHER PEOPLE´S ACHIEVEMENTS and we will move faster in our journey towards OUR PERSONAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS…I do not know if it is better to say personal or collective…to be honest everything is part of a whole; the way I see you, is a faithful reflection of how I see myself.

Yes we can do it indeed, we can take that giant step, we can see ENVY from a different point of view, more constructive…everything depends on the type of glasses we are willing to put on…to see far or to see close…

Let us go back on that initial feeling rumbling in our guts, even though for just a moment, recognizing our supposed insignificance in front of the magnificence of our envied object; that same one we have labelled as HEALTHY ENVY.  The lower our SELF ESTEEM is, the stronger the other type will grow: THE UNHEALTHY ENVY.  This one sharpens its teeth in front of the mirror, ready to behead whoever is in its way, feeling very satisfied, apparently very sympathetic with OTHER PEOPLE´S MISFORTUNES.

I can do it too

Stop for a second and become aware of your feelings, mindfully and without any censures…Now, with a lot of SELFLOVE, and without guilt´s feelings, turn your canoe around and row towards clearer and calmer waters. Feel relieved, able to accept it, to tell loudly to yourself and the other person: you are doing very well! You INSPIRE me to work on myself, to challenge myself, knowing I CAN DO IT TOO.

The essential ingredient to feel MOTIVATED comes from our inner self, to develop the necessary strength to carry on with dedication until we have reached our AIM; it can always be found when competing with yourself. That desire coming from inside, creates a constant comparison with others, pushing us to move on, leaving on the side those inner voices that poison us. Those same voices that do not allow us to advance, but rather take us backwards, disguise as FRUSTRATION.

The best choice is always supporting our best quality

The best choice is always supporting our best QUALITY …Deep self-knowledge is the base.  We start building from the base and live with COURAGE and SELF DETERMINATION. Stop ENVYING and stop SUFFERING. Let us avoid the poisoned darts thrown by the envious people.

Remember that everything, you focus your attention and your energy on, grows. Keep your lantern stable, illuminating your own self. Everything is a reflection, everything is a projection, as per excess or defect, in one polarity or in another…but it is always talking about your own story. If somehow it affects you, then there is something you need to face.

The way YOU SEE ME…is the way YOU SEE YOURSELF.  🧡

Ahora si… dentro de unos días… no lo sé

Through this sentence, that gives the title to this short space we share every Friday, I summarize what FREEDOM TO CHANGE MY MIND means to me.

For now, yes…in a few days…I do not know

Sometimes, what initially can be considered as a failure to keep our word and/or lack of seriousness, it can later be seen as one of the most serious compromise with ourselves.  Of course, you can change your opinion… I would say, this should be one of the primary ingredients for our MENTAL DIET… We are exposed to continuous changes in our internal habits as much as our external ones.  

Remember, in the same way we are flexible with ourselves, we can be flexible with others.  We are not failing anyone, nor disrespect anyone, apart from ourselves, if we force ourselves to maintain the same decision just because we have followed our impulse in that specific occasion or simply to please someone to obtain a secondary benefit and apparently be more accepted.

Everything comes from inside…

Through self judgement we tyrannize and oblige ourselves to keep something we knew ,from the deepest of our guts, was not what we wanted to do or say. These are the moments when it is extremely useful to have access to our first aid kit, PUT A STOP TO OUR JOURNEY AND ONE TO OUR THOUGHTS, have a look at our emotional thermometer and check the TEMPERATURE OF OUR EMOTIONS.

Do I feel well?… YES… Then I am being coherent with what I think, say and do. Am I in peace with myself after I have committed to do something? NO. It is clear there is something that should be revised. You can and should say anything you like; the DIALOGUE is the key.   Whatever you say in a proper manner, with respect and out of freedom, deserves an applause.  We are often surprised by the outcomes… Everyone who is next or in front of us, is a screen or a mirror of our best dreams or of our worst nightmares…As the lyric of a song says…” Everything comes from inside…”

Free Will

When we decide to make a choice based on our FREE WILL, the feeling of power is great!  …If yesterday I decided to say yes, even though I was not very sure about it, and yet I said it, today I say no with decision, with my best smile and I give myself permission to change opinion and to change perspective.  This is how I create a different reality in my present, here and now; this is how I am building the near future with other results, different from those of yesterday, when my opinion and my decision were others.  At the end of the day, we are constantly facing a trial and error as the only source of experimentation, evolution and self-awareness.

If we change the focus, the vision will change and with it the result.  Far away from making the concepts muddy, one can be frank, a person of his word and yet able to change his mind.  Clearly, if we change our mind constantly, we will not be able to reach our aims and this would only create a paralyzing chaos in our mind with very little progress; the same would happen if we are stubborn…Everything should be applied with moderation.

The essential is to be coherent with yourself

We are exposed so much to so many external stimuli in our daily life, that it is very hard to STOP AND LISTEN TO OURSELVES.  If we add to this THE FEAR OF SELF CRITICISM, multiplied by the STAGE FEAR, by what people are going to think about us and on top of this, we add a brushstroke of lack of SELF LOVE, the outcome is disastrous.

Nothing is right nor wrong … Nothing is fair nor unfair. The essential is to be coherent with yourself. Follow your instinct, change your mind if you like, but remain faithful to your essence.Never ever betray yourself to please other, nor allow yourself to be carried along by the current and then PUT THE BLAME ON others with comments like: ” I did not want to do it but they convinced me to…” “in the last moment I wanted to back away but it was too late…”

My question is “Late for what? Scared of what?  Accountable to whom?

Life is too short for it. LIVE THE NOW, say YES…Who knows, tomorrow it could be a NO…CHANGING IS NOT ONLY NECESSARY IN LIFE…IT IS LIFE ITSELF. 🧡

como te llamas

Your name says a lot about who you are and the role you play in this stage called life…It is not only a simple sequence of letters that together create a word. Once it is pronounced in that specific way, it creates a sound which transforms itself into something so inherent to each one of us, that we are tempted to turn around as soon as we hear it, when walking in the street.

What is your name?

Usually there is a LOGICAL THREAD behind it, very often a FAMILY´S TRADITION.  That IMPRINT will accompany us throughout our whole life and will have much more influence than we possibly could think.

Every name brings with it a SYSTEMIC CHARGE, a kind of FINGERPRINT that feeds us and from which we feed ourselves back. Everything has a reason to be and an aim. Therefore, it is important to know how they chose our name; in memory or in honor of whom and why.  We get very surprised when we find out the apparent coincidences with that member of our family´s clan and ourselves…But be careful, we do not only carry the same name…sometimes that comes with the same EMOTIONAL BURDENS as well, passed down from generation to generation.

Knowledge always opens doors

Sometimes our name breaks the mold and has nothing in connection with the typical names inside the family circle; they simply gave it to us because it was fashionable at that time; because our parents liked its sounds or meaning, or maybe because they associated it to a pleasant event… Believe me, even in these circumstances, it has a lot to say about your identity and how your existence flows. I encourage you to investigate the meaning of your name, its origin and why they decided to give you that name and not another one…Many mysteries will be revealed, and many questions will be answered. 

Knowledge always opens doors, it brings new points of view, which can help us to see and understand the situation better, but most important of all, this can give us the opportunity to get rid of heavy burdens that do not belong to us.  We are all connected energetically to each other and maybe, this could be the reason we are carrying a useless burden, dragged down from generation to generation, for the simple fact we have the same name of another family´s member.

Do you identify yourself with your name? 

Do you really like it or have simply got used to it? Would change it if you could do it right now? Do you find any personal resonance with the meaning of your name?

The comfortability or rejection you may feel for your name can give you some interesting leads.  Close your eyes and repeat mentally your name: let sensations come to you intuitively, let them flow freely, without forcing them… Let your EMOCIONAL THERMOMETER brings you the answers.  Maybe the scenes or the sensations that come to you have no apparent connection with the theme of your question… Do carry on and become an observer.  If you do not obtain any result at your first attempt, repeat the same process the day after. The answers you are looking for, are always inside you, let them emerge, at their pace…

The great power our name can have, when repeated day after day

If we apply the principle that everything we repeat through words, actions or thoughts has a specific vibration and a specific frequency and that the more we repeat them the stronger the attraction becomes, would you be able to imagine the great power our name can have, when repeated day after day? Have you ever stopped and thought about how many times we pronounce our name, how many times we write it down or we react whenever someone call it out?

Nowadays the process of changing it is much easier if we want to do it. But if we are happy with it, and even thought we might have discovered there is a powerful link with our family´s systemic weighting heavily over our shoulders, it would be enough, to give thanks through either an intimate letter or a decree to liberate ourselves from all the responsibilities in connection with that familiar burden attached to it…What a relief!

We are all unique and one at the same time

There is no doubt that neither chances nor coincidences exist, or at least this is how I see it.  Everything has an order, a concert in the vast universe we live in.  I invite you to learn a bit more about the very important and crucial role you play in it.

Do you believe that if we were to remove a star from the universe, the firmament would carry on shining with the same strength?  I am pretty sure you would feel that micro-macro energetic emptiness.  We are all unique and ONE at the same time. 

Take up your place, call yourself the way you prefer, but ALWAYS SHINE THROUGH YOUR FREEDOM AND BE LIGHTWEIGHT. 🧡

memories

What happened with those moments we used to immortalize in papers and place all around the house, making us revive SPECIAL MOMENTS in a simple blink?

The other day my mobile phone alerted me that it was running out of memory…Gosh, almost 2000 photos saved in there!

I started to go through them…It would be beautiful to have this in a frame…and this one…maybe this other one too!

Memories

THE VIRTUAL WORLD is amazing and practical, on one side, but cold and dehumanizing on the other, if we do not put a balance to it…as everything in this life!

Our existence, and a big deal of everything we want to know and remember, is kept inside a small rectangle called mobile, something we take with us everywhere. It is like our appendix, camouflaged inside our small vital space…It seems that we need it more than the air we breathe…If we forget it, we run back home for it, like if it were human…this can even cause us a panic attack.

Reality or fiction, are we real or virtual?

I am a supporter of great technological advances, especially in these last years…Nevertheless, I define myself a classic person, so to say, and my inclination puts more weight on the joy I feel when I have a book in my hands, and I can touch its pages, instead of reading it in my laptop… I experience the same when listening to music…I can recall with pleasure and illusion those days when I used to feel in advance the joy of going out to buy CDs … We all know that a simple application, downloaded in our smart phone, offers us all the songs we can possibly desire in a second…Personally, I still prefer the ritual of buying them in a shop, taking them home and putting them in my music player, turn up the volume quite high and let my senses be delighted…For me, this is much more than a simple “Alexa: Elton John´s greatest hits”.

Something for everyone…We have all the choices a rainbow can offers just in front of us… I love evolution, advances but sometimes I ask myself “Maybe we are leaving behind essential parts of our HUMANITY AND EMOTIONALITY? Are we going to pay the consequences of so much technology and control later on?

Every passing day we are becoming more technological, but are we feeling more free or more enslaved?

I remember I once saw a futuristic film, the story of which could take your hiccups away “when the impossible becomes real… and man becomes alienated by his own technological creations…”

I go back to focus again on the thematic we are dealing with…and even though EVERYTHING IS PART OF EVERYTHING, today I want to remember and share with everyone outside there, the beauty of a paper photograph and the deep value it has for me. That perpetuation of our story, that legacy left for our future generations…We could easily get a better understanding of our existence, the history of our family tree, of our ancestors, of our tribe.  A very important connection to understand better those who came before, the ones who are here and now in this physical dimension and those who will follow…

Because…somehow, PHOTOGRAPHS represent our GENETIC MATERIAL, not only to find out a resemblance at a PHISICAL LEVEL, but MOVEMENTS AND BEHAVIOURS too.

Special moments

 “A picture is worth thousand words”, this is an expression able to clearly manifest the concept in a few words… I stand up for photos printed in paper, as we used to do before…They decorate our homes with those SPECIAL MOMENTS.   We should teach and pass down to our youngsters the importance of EVOLVING THROUGH TRADITIONS.

Let us keep alive those small habits that link us to the roots of our HUMAN ANCESTRAL WISDOM. Let us carry on with constant evolution, where TECHNOLOGY AND HUMANITY goes hand in hand in loving brotherhood.

We will walk forward like equilibrists on that subtle line that makes a great difference…on top and in between the two polarities, avoiding to increase the weight of that technological phenomenon, which in the end, may possibly swallow us up.  ?

Habla el silencio

There are moments, in between one thought and another, that are like EMPTY SPACES, where we feel an IMMESURABLE PEACE…in these precise moments we become more receptive to listen to THE VOICE OF SILENCE. Here is where the NOW really has a meaning, where any pain disappears, when we reach the deepest part of our authentic essence, what we call SOUL.

Silence speaks

This is a short explanation about my experience of personal retreat, an experience that at the beginning is difficult to get the gist of…It is usually known as SELF AWARENESS, MEDITATION, PRAYING, THOUGHT-STOPPING…Anyone can choose the definition he/she prefers the most. The essential is not how we call it, but how we feel it…

Let the silence speak to you, allow the mind to make itself quiet and let all the answers to every single question, accumulated in your mind, come to you, like presents…easily…Let yourself go, create a space that allows you to be receptive to the listening, to the sensations, to the images.  Learn to RECOGNISE THE ENERGY YOU ARE, beyond the physical body we have borrowed at birth from our creator.

Only this precise instant exists

It is easy, believe me… Let yourself go and see beyond this world.  A constant and willing practice is the fundamental ingredient, this will increase more and more while practicing it. If the PRACTICE OR THE AWAKENING becomes difficult, it would be advisable to start again from the beginning and choose a A NEW PATH…search inside your mind…Maybe you are overcomplicating the journey, simply because you are so used to this habit…It is now time to switch off the AUTOMATIC PILOT´S MODE.

Observe the flow of the various scenes CREATED by your mind running in front of you, do it in the same way you do, when you turn the pages of a book, without focusing on any specific sentence…Focus on the emptiness, on the abstract, on what has no shape…Breath this moment in, deeply…Let go the concepts of PAST MEMORIES AND FUTURE PROYECTIONS…ONLY THIS PRECISE INSTANT EXISTS, NOTHING ELSE. Be patient and good to yourself…Accept it all as it is, and feel the relaxation this produces in you…every beat of your heart represents your MANTRA OR GUIDE, go back to the moment of now, as many times as you may need…

Enjoy your journey, enjoy your path

Enjoy your journey, enjoy your path…Be aware that if you make it easy, you will reach your destination earlier…and for sure you will discover that you are on top of an immense FEELING OF EMPTINESS.  At this stage your hunger will attack you again and at this height, you will ask yourself if THE PERMANENT INSATISFACTION is your natural condition…What is happening to me?

There is a clear difference between having GOALS AND INCENTIVES IN LIFE and get up every morning with those illusions; try to avoid that your goals become obsessions   and avoid focusing on achieving them in any way and at any price…Let your inner wisdom lead you…Let the control go…We would save so much energy if only we could listen to the silence for a little while!

As we evolve, we temper our emotions, and is so nice to be able to temper ourselves; so nice to calm down and take a seat in a sweet waiting mode.  Remember, usually the evolution of every person is the result of hard work or at least it seems so.

If you are a natural proactive person, maybe THE ABILITY YOU NEED TO DEVELOP is more associated with: “I have done everything that was in my hands…now it is time to sit down and wait…”

Start to work miracles in your own life

Whatever the circumstances, you will always find the best INSTRUCTIONS´ BOOKLET to achieve the maximum of this terrestrial life inside yourself, you just need to use the different ways at your disposal to communicate with yourself…and as everything ..the more you practice…the better the results. 

Start the awakening process from the apparent incongruence of closing your physical eyes…train yourself…practice… Then you will be able to do it with your eyes wide open and apply it to all you daily tasks.

I salute Saint Theresa of Jesus and I end this post with her well-known phrase “you can find God even when cooking…”

God, our divine energy, is everywhere. Enjoy your life and discover that we are all part of that divine spark. Start to work miracles in your own life RIGHT NOW. ?

Dolce far niente

How sweet is this philosophy, imported from mother Italy, in which one surrenders oneself completely to a TOTAL LACK OF EXPECTATIONS, to A MINDFUL DOING NOTHING, almost going back to a early beginning, when we were babies. Now you can see how, sometimes, the secret of great results is hidden in the most elementary thing.  The one that we do not conceide to ourselves too often, just to avoid feeling TOO LAZY OR TOO IDLE…Maybe this is exactly the key to what we call LUCK…Personally I consider it more an INSPIRATION,  that state of mind in which we flow easily, like a balloon left free, flying higher and higher, apparently without any aim, but in such a lightness that you almost get hypnotised. 

The sweetness of doing nothing

I have just finished to practise my daily ACTIVE MEDITATION,  meaning my yoga exercises, absorbed in a pleasant purr, while stretching and twisting from one side to another, wishing that this space were endless. Like in the morning, when we give orders to our eyes to open up and start the day, and yet we keep on lying down like paralized, trying to extend a bit more that heaviness of our eyelids, THAT MINDFUL RELAX, suggested in a very soft voice and whispering: “ just a bit more…simply enjoy this sweet DOING NOTHING…without even daring to make a move. It is a space in which the TIME STOPS and we experience that total peace of mind, without worrying about what will do next…It is a complete ABANDON, where time and space become very blurr, without any type of CONTROL….An amazing SWEETNESS OF DOING NOTHING.

My energy flies whimsically towards Oscar, my life companion, who, in these days, is visiting his family in Italy, his native country; I am still submerged in my relaxation, and that marvellous latin expression gives me the idea to title the post I am sharing with you in this moment…I take advantage of this and I run to my laptop…Simply like this…I trap those whispers, that inspiration which guides me to write a different script and a different thematic every Friday, to share a new story with you all, my dear readers, every week.

Everything I project from inside is what I find outside

I believe, every day more and more, that EVERYTHING I PROJECT FROM INSIDE IS WHAT I FIND OUTSIDE,  I surrender myself to THE CERTANTY OF THE IMPROVISATION…it is a sort of…”I never know what I will write about next time, but I actually know it…” I hope I will be able to transmit this feeling to you with clarity, through the expression that I really love a lot and I totally agree with…” I have faith in my destiny, a total trust that everything will come out well”…and for this,  you need to stay alert, yet in an apparent state of doing nothing…In this way, anything can give you a clue for THE NEXT STEP. 

In a rational or irrational way, we carry on having an irresistible impulse in our genes to forsee what will happen to us…but above all, to move in the right direction towards OUR BEST VERSION, supported by the complicit wink of the universe.

Time to feel more alive

You should believe me when I say that, what may appear to be the most catastrofic outcomes, are in reality the greatest lessons…maybe in those moments of more chaos, thanks to the DOING NOTHING, we can organise and understand the message, remaning long enough to trascend it and pass to someone else the sweet, NOW I AM NOT DOING ANYTHING…Life is very wise and it gives us UNEQUIVOCAL SIGNS suggesting it is time to TAKE ACTION.

In the meantime I put the laptop on the side and I dedicate myself some more time of APPARENT BOREDOM OR TIME OUT…I invite you to practise and enjoy its pleasant  effects…For me, is totally the opposite…TIME TO FEEL MORE ALIVE.

Remember, that you can find the best SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE in that space full of identity, simultaneously without names or surnames to define it…to which all of us has a direct access.

I wish that you can fully enjoy the sweetness of doing nothing of your choice…at the end…all roads lead to Rome… ?

Pisando fuerte

It may be interpreted literally or figuratively, but THE WAY WE TAKE A STEP, defines and affects us. Let us devolop this concept from a pure PHYSICAL AND TANGIBLE aspect to a more ETHEREAL AND INTANGIBLE.

Taking strong steps

I remember with a lot of tenderness the stage of my life when I used to observe and try to show, to every person who came to my studio, the great importance of  WALKING MINDFULLY;  I explain myself better: if you pay ATTENTION to the BASE  THAT SUPPORTS your FEET, you will realise there is an IMBALANCE in how the weight is distributed in the fingers of your feet, in the area covering the arch of the foot, in the heel and in the instep and outstep…There is a much easier way to find out how your step is…if you check under your shoes, you will find out straight away, which parts of your soles and of your heels have been more consumed, simple as this.

The way we distribute our body’s weight in our feet has a direct impact on all our BODY’S PARTS: it is pure logic, if I put down my foot in a wrong way, I OVERLOAD involuntarily, the ankles, the hips, the shoulders..Even though apparently we do not find any relation in it, a pain in the neck can have its origin in the way  we take a step and this movement will not only define your PHYSICAL BODY, but your EMOTIONAL PART as well.

Perfect Balance

Our body is made in such a way that it should move in a PERFECT BALANCE…It is extremely STRONG, able to support and sustain, almost without complaining, most of the mistreatments, pressions and pains we often inflict on it,  but at times it is very SENSITIVE to our smallest EMOTIONAL changes.  We live in the constant search of our  homeostasis or BALANCE…do not forget that the INSIDE is always projected in the OUTSIDE…we are like COMMUNICATING VASSELS…our INNER PART talks about our EXTERIOR PART AND VICEVERSA, it is a whole that cannot be separated.

The evolution

If we take into consideration the THEORY OF THE EVOLUTION, how could we change from QUADRUPEDS to BIPEDS?

BEING ABLE TO USE TWO LEGS TO WALK is definetly one of the most important and peculiar adaptation,  which carachterises and differentiates us from our brothers, the chimpanzees. Who knows, maybe back then, we needed to have our hands free to carry our food with more ease or carry our offsprings…Whatever the reasons, it is very clear that the ability to WALK UPRIGHT required deep anatomical transformations, especially in the lower extremities and in the pelvis.  Maybe this could be the factor capable to explain the increase of our BRAIN’S size.

Let us now focus on the PLANT OF OUR FOOT.  Since  the CHINESE ACUPUNCTURE  AND THE FAR EGYPT, we have been using this ancestral technique which identifies the location of every organ of our body in the plants of our feet like in a physical map. REFLEXOLOGY is able to give relief or activate any part of the body with a simple pression in specific points of our feet ’s plants.

Balance wins the match

Just to avoid to overcomplicate myself I simply want to say that everything is interconnected, like in a CHAIN PRODUCTION’S SYSTEM…if there is a failure in one of its stages, the production is interrupted and this activates a series of DEFICIENCIES; the BODY, THE MIND AND THE EMOTIONS always give us SIGNALS OF ALARM.

Despite this, the body obeys faithfully to the orders sent by the mind and executes the instructions at all costs.
At first it sends SUBTLE SIGNALS, something like the traffic light when it shows the color amber. If we ignore it, the signals become more intense and the traffic light turns red, forcing us to AN OBLIGATORY STOP, normally accompanied by PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL PAIN.

The  emotional healing is always more expensive than the physical one. It is not the same to have a flat tyre, which you can fix easily while singing, than having to fix the break down of you car because your engine is seized.

Moral of the story: Always put your foot down mindfully…taking proper precautions…

There is not doubt that life needs to be lived fully…but be careful,  as pushing the engine too much can lead to a colapse… a colapse that leads to a disaster and to destruction….Once again BALANCE wins the match.  ?
