3 questions to detach from food beliefs

Version en español

versão em portugues

Now that we are following the 4 steps to expand nutritional consciousness (click here to read about the expansion of the nutritional awareness), we can focus on the importance of working on DETACHMENT.

We’ve had the same habits for a very long time, at times without knowing exactly why and, other times, thinking that what we consume is “good for us“. Thanks to the exercise of consciousness we can perceive that each body reacts in a different way, as well as people react in different ways to the same situation.

Our body is wise, often, that wisdom starts at the very moment of seeing or eating something. The idea of a conscious nutrition is about knowing which food that we like, and is good for us, contains more nutrients, in order to enrich our diets and transform them into a more efficient energy source.

From now on, the invitation is to detach from our food beliefs, so we can open up our minds to the idea of nutrition. Let’s ask 3 simple questions to ourselves:

  1. What do we eat just because people say is good for us?
  2. Is it really good for us?
  3. Do we enjoy the flavor and our bodies reacts well when we eat that?

Let’s create habits based on the integration of scientific knowledge and our natural wisdom (click here to read the text about micronutrients and cell regeneration). Currently, my diet is focused on the consumption of fruits, drupes, seeds and grains, all high in micronutrients. What about yours? What do you eat every day and why do you eat that?

We Empower Our Mindset

Version en español

versão em portugues

It’s wonderful to perceive, through our own experience, that our minds can be our best allies in order to empower ourselves (click here to read about personal empowerment), we just need to focus them on what we want to construct from our hearts, hence, enhancing our results in every single level.

To understand our mental habits, it is essential to perceive the thoughts that come to us during the day (click here to read about keeping our minds present), we are so used to them, that we can probably feel surprised about the quantity of thoughts of doubt that emerge about ourselves and our personal processes, in all the areas of our lives, that block us from the lack of trust in ourselves, since, some of us have grown up while looking for everything that could give us material satisfaction instead of developing and work from the authenticity of our own talents.

By taking into account the fact that we can assume the responsibility about our thoughts, it is essential to reprogram, coherently, the way we live our personal experience in the world (click here to read about reprogramming thoughts).To do so, I share with you the beliefs I have integrated, in the last 2 years, that have empowered my belief system from authenticity in unity (as we aligned our thoughts, feelings and expression to them, we perceive that our reality transforms itself):

  1. WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT: we have diferent talents, motivation, environments we develop in, ways of expressing ourselves and perceiving the world, etc., and all these aspects have infinite combinations, therefore, we need to invest our resources in, constantly, developing them and putting them into practice, according to our own context, hence, focusing our energy on constructing ourselves authentically to build integrity (click here to read about self-knowledge).

  2. WE ARE ALL PART OF A WHOLE: through our experience we can perceive how everything is organized into systems, just as cells work to keep the body working, we can also recognize ourselves as cells of society. From this perspective we learn to contribute through our authenticity for the construction of a sustainable and peaceful society (click here to read about building consciously).

  3. WHAT WE ALL WANT IS PEACE: in spite of the satisfaction we believe we get from having a life full of inner conflicts that manifest themselves out (because we haven’t experienced other state due to our lack of self-knowledge) we all want to be peaceful, to truly flow with who we are and to connect to people and situations that enhance our peace. We manifest peace on the outside when we are peace from within, when we know ourselves and accept our essence, is in that moment that we start constructing from our own example, through conscious actions, a society that self-regulate itself due to its high degree of consciousness and connection (click here to read about constructing peace).

  4. WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT WE MANIFEST IN OUR REALITY: our thoughts, feelings, words and actions (or reactions, when there is unconsciousness) build up every day the reality we live in, so, in order to experience on the outside our peace within ourselves, it is necessary to create different ways of thinking, feeling, and expressing ourselves, understanding that everything has an impact where we’re in. Through sublimation, we can transform the way we vibrate, in order to connect to our hearts and increase the vibratory frequency of our purpose (click here to read about sublimation of our reality).

These four beliefs have been extremely empowering, they make me reconnect to new ways of expressing myself and embrace the world every moment, and to the certainty of always being at the appropriate moment and place for developing my purpose as a cell part of the whole. What beliefs have been empowering you lately?

Love,

4 steps to keep our minds in the present

Version en español

versão em portugues

When we interact with ourselves and with everyting around us, it’s important to be aware of acting more and reacting less. Today, let’s concentrate on our thoughts, what goes through our minds all the time.

In 2016, I participated in a training to consctruct a more assertive communication and the message is very clear, we carry many filters we are not very aware of, our judgements, and comparisons based on our own beliefs (which sometimes give us security because other people have also bought them), and those filters make our mind to keep reacting to everything we go through instead of being present (click here to read about deciding by conviction).

Many times, while talking to someone, we start judging what the person is saying, within our minds, whether in a positive or negative way, and we already have a prepared answer. In some cases the person hasn’t even finished talking and we answer (before we forget). And we do that constantly, in almost everything we do. We cook thinking about the time, take shower thinking about what we’re going to wear, etc., any situation mess up with our minds when we’re not aware of bringing it to the present moment.

Today, we’re going to follow these steps to bring our mind back to the “here and now” and train it for acting from the moment on, instead of reacting from our filters:

  1. Choosing only one action to focus our mental attention.
  2. Focusing on the person and/or action that is happening.
  3. If a thought comes up let it pass and come back to the focus point.
  4. Feeling, with all perception system, whatever we’re living.

As we practice following these steps, our minds get used to the new behavior pattern and our state of attention, and connection, in life changes. Share this post with someone who finds it necessary and tell us about you. Does our mind live in the future, in the past or in the present?

Setting Boundaries: how to build personal respect

Version en español

versão em portugues

As we expand our personal awareness we increase our connection with who we really are (click here to read about transmutation of the being) and by getting new habits we empower our roots, believes and needs, this way we are able to access a part of us that motivates us to exercise respect (click here to read about respect).

Many people have transmitted that everything comes from within and it is really as simple as that. When we want to be respected it is very important that we know how to respect, from the heart. But, how do we know if we are respecting or not, if we don’t know our own personal boundaries and others’ (click here to reflect on respect)? Here self knowledge, self confidence, respect and transparent communication have an important role, since only our own selves are able to know what we really want, like and need, and when that is aligned to respect and constructivity, and that way is communicated, it is really from the heart.

Following these steps we can be more assertive when setting our own personal boudaries from the heart:

  1. Empowering beliefs: we have beliefs that leads us to a lack of self respect. For example “if we say “NO” we stay alone” or “saying always “YES” is necessary for being a good person”. These are beliefs, when we open up totally without setting any boundaries we hurt ourselves and set an example to everyone around us, that’s why it is very important to observe the reason why we’re not building what we desire (click here to read about empowering beliefs).
  2. Inner connection, our desire: getting in touch with who we really are helps us design our lives and build the boundaries necessary for our development. If we want a job where we can have a flexible schedule we can find it, so we must send our CV to the companies that offer this benefit or create our own business (this would be a limit that helps us build what we want). REMEMBER THAT WHAT WE WANT FROM HEART IS ALWAYS CONNECTED TO TRANSPARENCY, RESPECT AND CONSTRUCTIVITY (click here to read about recognizing what is from the heart).
  3. Clear Boundaries: when we decide what we want in our personal, professional or loving lives, we can set clear boundaries that bring the results that we want. These boundaries must be aligned to the heart, that is, being detached and understanding the other’s freedom of being, so that we can build assertively.
  4. Comunication and application: to conclude the process it is important that we communicate our reality to the parties involved and apply what we desire. If we desire a relationship full of fidelity, loyalt, respect and freedom of being who we are, we must act coherently with that desire, work on ourselves what we want so we can offer it too.

This is an important cycle to connect in a more loving level to the world, making a habit of it we feel that our relationships transform themselves and get more peaceful.

After two years of working at an office, I realized that my desire is being with people and help them to be the best version of themselves and having time during the day to take care of myself, the boundary I set over time was “working where I can help people and take care of myself”. That, totall, changes my life. What about you? Have you ever set a boundary that changes your life?

4 steps to transform our, not so necessary, needs

Version en español

versão em portugues

To transform our minds (click here to read about constructive mind) and focus that energy on the empowering construction of our lives, ans others’, is not always enough practicing to see the constructive side of the situations, sometimes we need to go deeper in order to understand our personal beliefs system (click here to read about beliefs) and the needs behind itself, since when we aknowledge the need, that generate the belief, and transform it, we are able to, efectively, acting different in a coherent way (click here to read about coherence).

At some moments it seems difficult to think something constructive about a certain situation so we can empower our thoughts and beliefs and in that moment we must stop to analize the origin of that internal discomfort, that means there is something we haven’t considered yet, our own needs.

We always build a reality along with certain needs, that can, or not, be ours. For this reason it’s very useful to spend some time living in a different way from the one we’ve always lived, by changing that, we perceive that not all we thought we need we really need.

Now that we understand better what a need is and its effect, let’s learn an easy way of working it out.

  1. Identify the need that leads us to the belief that leads to discomfort to be empowered.
  2. Analize if the need is really necessary.
  3. If it’s not necessary we can change our need.
  4. If it’s necessary we should align the believe and the thought with it and have the courage to transform the situation through action.

To have harmony in our lives, it is important to change the perspective, some aspects will be easier to work, others less, the important thing is that we always seek integration.

Ángel

Empowering Beliefs: 3 steps do identify and transform our beliefs

Version en español

versão em portugues

Keeping our minds in the present (click here to read the text about present mind) and having constructive thoughts (click here to read the text about constructive mind) we can connect to the world from a wider persective, where we recognize little aspects we haven’t perceived before. Sensations that comes from the most different sources and allow us to know a little more about us.

To reinforce the thoughts constructive process let’s bring the awareness to our belief system, that is an important part of our limiting mental noise, since it is installed, works automatically and, often, doesn’t match what we really want.

Following these 3 steps we can identify the beliefs we bring, if they’re limiting or empowering, and transform them.

  1. Identify the belief causing the thought that arises.
  2. Answer the question: Is this belief empowering me or other people? If the answer is “YES” the exercise about this belief end up here, if the answer is “NO” let’s follow th third step.
  3. Transform the limiting belief into an empowering belief.

This process is simple, see an example below to make it clearer.

  1. Thought: At that age is impossible to have any opportunity –> Belief: after certain age there are no opportunities.
  2. This belief is limitation, for me and for others.
  3. Empowering Belief: opportunities depend on people’s preparation and attitude.

In some cases, in order to make the transformation, we have to look for facts that shows us that our belief is not an absolut truth. In this case I see people around me that have become more complete professionals, as they age, and their experience and nkowledge have led them to be a reference in their area, since they believe there are opportunities for people with skills and knowledge integrated to their own personality and have always worked on that.

The key for building is empowerment, both ours and others’, so let’s focus on sharing more knowledge and experience when interacting, so we can improve our team work.

Constructive Relationships: 7 questions to assess the level of constructivity of relationships

Version en español

versão em portugues

It is very important to work on our self-relationship (click here to read the text about transforming our self relationship), in order to understand who we really are (click here to read the text about self-knowledge) and be ready to relate to the world in a more assertive way. This includes to detach from destructive relationships, even if it is because of our or other’s intentions, and building new constructive relationships for our lives.

Today we’re talking, specifically, about the transformation of, and/or detach from, relationships that make us feel less than we are, or that just have turned into a waste of time, for we get use to it and we haven’t found our way out of there, whether because of one or many reasons (click here to read the text about empowering habits)..

Many types of beliefs have taken us to live relationships in our lives that, when we change our beliefs, we have seen them as something we don’t really want to live. As we grow up we pass certain situations that can lead us to know what we really don’t want or actually want, that’s why it is so important to learn to direct our lives by the relationship constructive path. This empower us.

There are 7 questions to assess the level of constructivity of relationships we live. Using the for every relationship (sentimental, family, friendship), in an honest way, we are able to understand if us, or other people, are having destructive behaviors, if they can really be transformed, or if the best thing to do is getting out of that relationship.

  1. In the relationship the both of us support each other?
  2. Is there respect between the both of us for each other’s growing and development?
  3. Is there freedom for being who we really are?
  4. Is there honesty and transparency?
  5. Is there dialog without manipulation?
  6. Is there trust, fidelity and loyalty?
  7. The both of us contribute to the construction and strengthening of the relationship?

If after asking ourselves these 7 questions most of the answers were “NO” we are living some kind of destructive relationship. It is important to analize is it’s really possible the transformation through the dialog, but if we perceive that there’s no possibility of changing what is destructing the relationship it is time to ask ourselves about the real reasons why we are still experiencing that. If some of those reasons is fear (of loneliness, of not finfing another person, of losing something) we must take the responsability of detaching from that and, in the most respectful way possible, making clear what we really want (click here to read the text about setting boundaries)..

When we live in an unconsciouss destructive way, we tend to see the external as a threat, but we can transform our own selves and find that heart path that leads us to be more respectful, free, transparent, faithful, loyal and constructive to us and to people (click here to read the text about connecting ourselves to our hearts). So, if today we are in a relationship like that, we must give us the chance of getting out of it and let ourselves, or the other person, follow our own consciousness path. Let’s do this for ours and others, it may be that the relationship that finish now start over again with a more consciouss point of view in order to build the relationship up .

Let’s be independent, dependency always causes undesireble emotional situations (click here to read the text about emotions and feelings).

Sublimation of Our Experience 2: Mental Reality

Version en español

versão em portugues

Now that we understand a little better what sublimation is (click here to read the full sublimation article), and how we experience it in our lives, we can begin a journey through our own experience, by integrating all the areas that make up our human integrity. Today’s issue is the sublimation of our mental reality, which is the basis of the way in which we relate to the world.

The reality that exists in our mind, the one we nurture, is the way in which we live our own experience. We have several options and we perceive only the things we pay attention to, because it is what most of the time is being communicated to us, since we connect and identify with it. So if we decide to see everything as an adversity or a challenge, our lives show to us that, in everything we do, when we decide to see everything as learning we live our lives as an infinite experience of knowledge. It is, for this reason, that it is so important to verify the reality we are nurturing in our minds.

Recognizing how our mind influences the way we experience our present, we can follow simple steps to sublimate our mental reality constructively and in harmony with everyone and everything around us.

  1. Let’s ask ourselves: What thoughts do we have during the day that generate anxiety, stress, sadness, on ourselves? Which daily situations intensify those thoughts and emotions? Example: if we think about the country situation, we feel insecure, this is intensified when we watch the news and talk to people about it.

  2. With the destructive thoughts and emotions identified, we can work on them by transforming them into constructive actions that empower us. Example: we are looking for ways to reduce unnecessary needs (click here to see a step by step to assess our needs), to live with what is necessary, to save what we have now, to identify our talents to work contributing to the construction of more constructive, coherent and transparent models, wherever we are.

  3. Let’s identify the thoughts and situations in our day that bring us tranquility and make us feel confidence about ourselves. Example: When we focus on doing something for which we are talented, when we spend time with ourselves, with our children, with animals, with people, with nature, etc.

  4. Let us focus our energy on intention (thoughts, feelings, words and actions) in what makes us feel connected to ourselves and the world. Let’s learn something new about ourselves and the ways we have a more constructive impact from home.

The reflection for today is: How much time do we dedicate per day to sublimate what is constructive for us?

A hug,
Ángel

Forgiveness Part 4: Accepting the Truth

Version en español

versão em portugues

Through this series we have seen forgiveness from another point of view, integrated guilt and control, now is necessary to understand about accepting the truth, since that is what leads us to apply forgiveness in every area of our lives.

Accepting the truth requires a deep knowledge of our own selves. We all feel in a different way, express ourselves as a consequence of what we feel integrated in a context, whether for or against it, and choose our path, althought, sometimes, we make decisions being incoherent to who we really are. What leads us to decide to go out with a comitted person?, or to work for a company that sells something we do not buy?, or to stay away from our family in order to create another?, this kind of questions, answered frankly (without trying to create mental games that always makes us feel we are right), gives us a more objective vision of our own selves and what we want from our hearts.

When we assume the responsibility for what we express, feel and think, we connect to our truth, the one that shows to us that we are where we have taken ourselves, nobody is guilty, everything is just our responsibility. We let contact to people, accept job offers, decide to keep away certain things and, now, we are just the result of every little decision we have made, so, do we want to continue where we are or not?. If the answer is “NO”, it is necessary to make decisions that lead us where we really want, in the most coherent way and accepting that not always what we have wanted is what is really aligned to our own truth.

Freeing ourselves from the fears and beliefs that have kept us away from everything that makes us flow and feel respected, we reconnect to ourselves to build a more coherent reality, more aligned to our true nature, the process may take time, but it is important that we dareto take the first step. And, to close this week series, it is necessary to connect to our inner voice, that voice that leads us to do what really integrates us and ourselves, making us feel complete.

Let’s accept our truth and see the truth of everything and everyone blooming 🙂

Love,
Ángel

Forgiveness Part 1: Definition and Resignification

Version en español versão em portugues

Talking to my friend Lina María (author of the EA Portal), we perceive that is necessary to break some paradigms about forgiveness so we can understand it better and integrate it to our lives in an easy and effective way. Because of it, this and the next posts are focus on the action of forgiving, going through the definition, break of paradigm, resignification, integration and application of forgiveness, integrally, in our lives.

The word forgive is defined as ceasing to feel resentment against someone. Integrating this definition to our personal experience, it is common that we perceive forgiveness as a superior way of relating to people or situations that, from our perspective, have hurt us. Now we are ready to break the paradigm of forgiving.

When we uderstand that comparisons, judgement and faults are part of a model that needs to be transformed for us to learn to relate in a more transparent, authentic, respectful and responsible way, to construct and remodel, sustainably, our planet, it’s necessary to break the paradigm that fogiveness makes us superior and resignify it as the integration of the ideia that we are responsible for choosing if something, efectively, affects us or hurts us.

Normally we feel hurt when a situation doesn’t go as expected, but, the same way we can blame others for what they say or do, we are also able to take responsibility for the expectation we have created for us to feel well, accepted, loved, etc, and for allowing others to enter and stay in our lives. If we analize a little deeper, feeling hurt comes from a need of control, from the desire of controlling our lives, and the people and situations in it. Let’s see this steps that lead us to connect to a side of our human nature that lets us low with our hearts:

  1. Seeing life as a constant learning: when we go into each situation, with all our senses, we can perceive elements that can lead us to a broader understanding of who we are.
  2. Being grateful for every minute of our lives: we can choose to see our lives as a miracle, be able to breathe or do what we de can always be a motive of gratitude and every lesson too, painful as they may seem, show us that we are more than we think.
  3. Putting into practice the exercices  to bring our minds to the present (click here to read the article about present mind), excercising the empowering of beliefs (click here to read the article about beliefs) and accepting people and situation as they are.

 

Let’s share our forgiveness experiences in the comments so that we can broaden our viewpoints. The subject of the next article is guilt and how to resignify it and integrate it into the process of personal forgiveness.

Love,
Ángel
