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.


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.


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. ?

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. ?

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.  ?

me oyes bien

Can you hear me properly..?

How often would you say you use this “catchphrase”?

Yes, you read it right. I say “ catchphrase” with all the INTENTION…Well…do we ever ponder if we are actually HEARING OR LISTENING?

Can you hear me properly..?

I am a strong supporter of the popular wisdom, and right now, a very much used expression comes to my mind; one that fits perfectly the reflection about the concept that we are dealing with…”like the person who hears the rain…”meaning, the one who TURNS A DEAF HEAR TO IT;  a situation where I do not pay ATTENTION nor I close my ears…but it is considered like a BACKGROUND NOISE. 

It is not a matter of going against the flow, but personally, I love to LISTEN, with all the five senses,  to the sound of the falling rain, something I almost consider a melody.

Obviously we come to face with our friend  WILLINGNESS, the same one that we put into action when we really care for something and we are more than ready to listen to carefully; we sharpen our ears, our hearing and our neurons to focus on the subject of our SELECTIVE HEARING, with body and soul.

i only hear what i want to hear

Let me give you a practical example my dear friend.

A group of friends, which cannot be more than 4 in these times…All very happy to be able to share some laughs and some good food…Someone starts a conversation about …you know what…yes…what else could it be..the present situation, the use of masks, the movement’s restrictions and the vaccines…

We have just hit the nail on the head…the fuse catches fire and the group takes different sides,  breaking in two groups of two…two looking forward to having the injection and the others do not even want to hear about it.  What has started as a very civilized dialogue, with one person talking and the others LISTENING attentively and with respect, is now warming up into a heated discussion, where nobody is listening anymore and there is instead a desperate attitude.. “ I am just waiting for him to finish talking to CONTER-ATTACT…I am not at all interesting in his opinion and this is why I behave like the one who HEARS, when in reality, I am totally DEAF and I ONLY HEAR WHAT I WANT TO HEAR; everything else is just a sequence of sounds coming out from his mouth and nothing else…

Does this sounds somehow familiar…?

Listening is an act of silence

This is how we are; for us, LISTENING is an effort…Why? Honestly I believe that listening is EMPHASISING with the other, but most of the times, we actually want to IMPOSE OUR JUDGEMENT AND ABOVE ALL, BE RIGHT.

I read this sentence somewhere in a website and I really loved it: “LISTENING is an act of SILENCE“. While our INTERNAL DIALOGUE carries on hammering in our head, there is no way that we can listen to others.

Once again, I suggest the following: “Why do not we start from ourselves?” That STOP OF THOUGHTS and MENTAL NOISES based in our precious little head, is the best master to introduce us to the art of LISTENING to our INNER SELF. A way to tame that CAGE OF CRAZY IDEAS in order to separate the IMPORTANT from the DISPOSABLE, recognising the NOISE FROM THE MELODY…Just have a go and you will see…The enormous difference!

THE BALANCE starts in the INNER SELF. Amazing inner works, reflected  in the outside, a PERFECT BALANCE between knowing how to LISTEN and when to SPEAK, those sweet moments of SILENCE AND REFLECTIONS. The outcome is an IMPECABLE DIALOGUE. 

Everything is possible

I close this chapter  with a bit of humor, imagining what could happen if this post would end, by pure chance, into the hands of some politician…And as I love dreaming and believing that everything is possible, how would be a debate among politicians who honestly LISTEN TO EACH OTHER?

It would make me very  happy to receive  your opinions about it. It would be amazing to read yours ideas and start to interact with you all. I am sure you are very familiar with the concept that “four eyes see better than two…” I would add that the more ears available to listen the better …

I really wish I could read some of your comments in my  web and listen to you with all the attention and love you deserve.

Thank you for being here!  ?

Al abrigo de una vela

How many WISHES OF MY SOUL have been granted at the light of a CANDLE?

Lighting a candle is a symbol of ILLUMINATION… It can be considered as well as an exercise of VOLUNTARY MINDFULNESS attracting to us our most desired PURPOSES AND EVERYTHING WE DESERVE. When the candles are lighted, it creates a link between our SPIRITUAL BEING AND OUR EMOTIONS, something like hugging and believing in our connection with a powerful and limitless SUPERIOR CREATIVE FORCE, present in each one of us and to which we are all indissolubly united…We are all one and make part of that UNIVERSAL ENERGY

Accompanied by a candle

Or this is how I feel it.  I love candles, I find great company in their LIGHT, in their CALM, in their WISDOM, silently whispering to me and I resonate with their MAGIC…At the end of the day that is mine too…I can pass large moments lost in the longitude of their flame, in their flaming or VIBRATIONAL MOVEMENT

It is said that Dr Usui, the founder of REIKI, was seen walking in the streets of Tokio with a lamp lighted in the middle of the day, like if he was a lighthouse, just to attract new students to this ancient and powerful energetic technique.

North & guide

It is very curious how the word “vela” (in English candle/sail) symbolizes the NORTH OR A GUIDE especially if it is referred to those parts of the ships without engine.  Once a candle has been lit, the wick illuminates and shows us THE WAY TO FOLLOW… THE NEXT STEP TO TAKE…THE (VELAS) SAILS OF A SHIP do exactly the same…it is enough to choose which one to put up…The GOD OF THE WINDS will take care of the rest…In any circumstances a CANDLE/SAIL shows us the DIRECTION, THE WAY…Either, when it is lit on top of a desk or up in a ship, in both cases it is like a BREATH OF ENERGY.

The use of candles is so powerful and yet so innocent. From a very tender age we use them to commemorate our JOURNEY IN THIS PHISICAL EXPERIENCE,  we crown the cake with candles to celebrate our birthday, RENEWING our LIVING ENERGY… A COMPROMISE WITH LIFE, from the moment we make a wish, from the bottom of our heart, before blowing and putting them off…A wish that we send with our deepest faith into the immense universe, with the certainty that our COSMIC REQUEST…will become TANGIBLE REALITY sooner or later.

Ancestral light

Everyone knows about its RELAXING power and personally it tele-transports me to very remotes times. I can imagine our primitive fellow human beings warming up by the heat of a bonfire, sharing LIGHT AND FOOD, sitting in the warmth and embraced in the magic of the embers…PRAYING with curious RITUALS to their god, in that moment the right ones for them.

I can see them doing an exercise of CONTROLLED AND MINDFUL MEDITATION, where they could increase their PERCEPTION, THEIR FOCUS ON CONCENTRATION… Able to reach deep levels of CONNECTION with their CREATOR, with that intuition which could lead them to decide whether to take a journey this way or that…Going out hunting the day after or painting the walls of the cave to leave proves they have been there…

Purifying light

The candles´ or bonfire´s light DETOX THE ENVIRONMENT, bringing an instant PURIFICATION, re-establishing HARMONY AND COSINESS to the surroundings.

Candles take us back to our ancestors, THE CROMAGNON MAN. He discovered that a wick could be kept burning by feeding it with animal fat and in that way, he could illuminate the cave during the night.  This is how candles started to bring light to the STONE AGE.

A step forward saw the use of oil, but this method of illumination came later on, around the xv century. 

I make a wish

I jump back to the present…otherwise I will get stuck in history and my imagination will go over the edge and I will lose the sense of time…as it is now time to close this space I share with you every week…There is no need to mention that a big candle always accompanies me, as usual…as you can see in the picture at the beginning of this post.

My dear friend: I am grateful for your time, your attention and I make a WISH: FOR YOU AND FOR ME…SO THAT ALL THE BEST ILLUMINATES US ALWAYS…LET IT BE LIKE THIS, I BLOW THE CANDLE…WISH GRANTED! ?

Jugar vs Juzgar

Somewhere, in a place…I am unable to recall now, I saw a drawing…What really impressed me, was the question written at the bottom of that drawing; AN IMPACTING REFLECTION…it said something like this “At what stage of our life, did we stop being PLAYING CHILDREN and become JUDGEMENTAL ADULTS”?

Impacting…is it not?   But it is so real as it is now 20.00, nighttime and I can see it through the window, from behind my desk.

Playing vs Judging

I remember when I used to take my children to the park, enjoying observing THE HUMAN BEHAVIOUR AND INTERACTIONS of THOSE LITTLE PEOPLE.

From a young age, THE FFELING OF BELONGING TO A GROUP is almost INSTICTIVE, so inherent to the human race as breathing is. From our very tender age, we PUT OURSELVES FORWARD and we form our own IDENTITY through the interactions we establish with those around us.

Thinking animals

The SMALLEST we are, THE PUREST and this is why we can find more affinities to the ANIMALS´ behaviors…At the end of the day, we are THINKING ANIMALS…are we not? 

I make myself clearer: an animal defends its territory, its cubs and fights for its survival. In the same way, when we are just kids, the younger we are, the more this attitude can be appreciated, we slap the one who tries to take away our favorite toy, but at times we are able to LEND OUR HAND to that, who is crying because he fell down or because another colleague took advantage of a moment of distraction and snatched his yellow lorry, simply attracted by the shining color of that toy.

Well, during that afternoon in the park among sand, swings and slides, my mind came up with the following question “When does it happen exactly, that we, adults, start to DAMAGE AND CONTAMINATE those minds, almost divine for their SIMPLICITY AND EASINESS and transform those small adorable people into JUDGEMENTAL MACHINES?

Emotional bagages

I am not going to discover anything new under this sun. It is quite useless to point out that we transmit this from GENERATION TO GENERATION and I suppose that we use the monosyllable “NO” as the star of the party and we apply it to every child´s movement, from the begin of the beginnings, without even realizing and with our best intention of course, but almost in a compulsive way.

We give ourselves plenty of reasons to do so, and with tenderness, but through an AUTOMATIC BEHAVIOUR, we discharge our FRUSTRATIONS, OUR RIGIDITY AND FEARS on those small souls, who absorb everything like sponges and start filling their EMOTIONAL BAGAGES with weights.

Emotional healing

I insist and emphasize again and again, that the best INHERITANCE we can leave to our children is OUR OWN EMOTIONAL HEALING. As we are energy, we can contribute directly to THE HEALING OF OUR FAMILY´S TREE.

Therefore, we can go back and RE-WRITE those events we lived with FEAR, WITH PAIN OR STRESS, neutralize them in our MEMORY and by doing so, we can revisit those moments with a different perspective, much more favorable than before.

Exercise of courage and willpower

At the end of the day, it is an EXERCISE OF COURAGE AND WILLPOWER, something like taking off onion´s layers, till you reach the core.  That VIRGIN CORE, even though is very well hidden, is waiting to be rescued and taken back to see the light again.

It is a GO BACK IN TIME, with care, with confidence and with TONS OF WILLPOWER, a regression to that moment, when we were THE LITTLE BOY OR THE LITTLE GIRL PLAYING IN THE SLIDE, ENJOYING ONCE AGAIN LIFE, READY TO LEND THE HAND TO WHOEVER may need it, with the ADVANTAGES OF OUR OWN EXPERIENCE… if I put my hand to close to the fire I know I will get burnt; so when there is a MUTUAL RESPECT, I HELP YOU, but when this is not the case, I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST…but I prefer to go on with my journey.

There is another way to see things

There is another way to see things as everything depends on the EYE OF THE OBSERVER.

If I manage TO LOVE MYSELF ENOUGH, so to avoid judging myself, I will be able to CONSIDER YOU IN THE SAME WAY I DID WITH MYSELF, my dear friend. I may possibly disagree with you, but I WILL NOT JUDGE YOU
