Transmutation of the Being: 4 aspects to connect to what we truly are

Version en español

versão em portugues

Our life is a personal construction that may be unconscious or conscious. Everything that manifests is our responsability, it depends on us to decide taking that in a conscious way in order to connect to our real selves for detaching of what we think we are.

Being who we really are is recognizing that the responsability about what we think, feel and express is totally ours, the decisions of every little thing in our lives it’s been made by ourselves (although sometimes it seems otherwise, it only takes one decision to change our present). That’s why we must be the most conscious possible about our own perception system, understanding how it works leads us to a deeper comprehension about ourselves (click here to buy the book 7 Levels for Personal Empowerment).

For getting to know who we reall are, it is necessary to perceive, integrate and transform, consciously, these 4 aspects:

  1. Beliefs: the filters that impact our perception of the world.
  2. Emotions: reactions that lead us to make decisions in a mental and impulsive way.
  3. Actions: the way ew nurture and strenghten ourselves, focus and use our bodies to express ourselves.
  4. Words: opinions and ideas we transmit.

Our true essence is in our state of flow and peace, as we broaden our perspective, we choose the mentality, the feeling and the expression, more aligned to our truth, becoming more coherent with our desire of integration of the heart (click here to read about coherence).

Let’s contribute, be authentic and work for a more conscious world.

How did I get rid of my Rhinitis?

Version en español

versão em portugues

The title of this article is an easy question to answer: by transforming habits which caused it. To understand the meaning of this answer, I want to tell you what led me to understand my own rhinitis process in order to know the cause and to be able to establish new constructive habits, it’s not about getting rid of something, but to integrate it as a resource that assists us to know our body and decide our experience.

From the age of 15, I began to manifest crises of rhinitis that lasted almost all the year, I used to live in a cold city and I was getting even more sedentary. Then, living in warmer cities, and going back to physical activity, I started feeling better, until the cold or the sedentary life showed up again, worsening my rhinitis, but I felt used to it, despite feeling bloated and tired for most of the day. At one point in my life, researching on nutrition, I read about the blood type diet, and I decided to avoid the consumption of milk and dairy products to the maximum, which, at the time, was very appropriate to understand that we are what we eat.

The rhinitis was diminishing, even on cold days and in those that I didn’t do any physical activity, it was at that moment that I began to analyze the effect that temperature and nutrition had in my body. Researching a little more, I discovered that toxins leave the body through sweat and mucous membranes. At that moment, I realized that this was the reason why my rhinitis crises coincided with the temperature of the body, when I feel cold I don’t sweat enough, even less if I don’t exercise, then, the elimination of the toxins is concentrated in the mucous causing different inflamations inside the body, especially when the amount of toxins is very high, and in my case, that I used to love cheese, when I ate I already knew that I would feel congested when my body expelled what it can’t process through mucous and sweat.

After understanding the process, I remembered that, in the moments in my life when I was better, I used to consume only the necessary food, was in warmer places and/or did some physical activity, then, from the knowledge integrated to my experience, I built my own wisdom about my rhinitis, these have been my empowering habits ever since:

  1. Almost zero consumption of milk and dairy products: it is important to integrate foods with calcium to do this, in my case, I bet on germinated seeds (flax, sesame and almonds) (click here to read about plant sources of calcium).
  2. Almost zero consumption of processed foods: there are many substances present in this type of food that the body can not process and/or use in the nutritional process, in my case, I try to find foods rich in vitamins and minerals (fruits and seeds) and consume them blended in order to enhace their absorption (click here to read about absorption of nutrients)
  3. Breathing through the nose: because of the rhinitis, many of us get used to breathing through the mouth, which reduces the space of the air passage of the nose, so, it is important to practice nasal breathing, so the air passage is enlarged and the nose complies its function of filter and temperature regulation of the air that enters the lungs to oxygenate the body.
  4. Postural awareness: by being aware of the function of our bones, joints and muscles, we can integrate constructive posture habits when sitting, lying down, standing or walking, I’ve perceived that it is a sufficient basis to keep the body active and thus make its processes more efficient.

By learning about our bodies and building habits that construct mental, emotional, sentimental and nutritional integrity, we can build the state of health and energy we want. What about you? Do you know what habits you need to transform to feel healthy?

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).

4 steps to expand nutritional consciousness

Version en español

versão em portugues

All our lives we have been used to eat in an “inherited” way set by our family or culture. In some cases we know the reason, which may or may not be real and useful for ourselves

The view I bring today is checking how our feeding is in this moment so we can understand it and transform it into nutrition.

When we become aware that food contains macronutrients (carbohidrates, proteins and lipids) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), we start to see the relevance of knowing what we eat.

Our bodies need vitamins, minerals and water so they can work properly. That’s the main goal of nutrition, giving what the body needs through food, that is the most efficient way of increasing the availability of macro and micronutrients to each of our cells (click here to read the text about nutrients and cell regeneration).

It’s necessary to know the reason why we follow certain diet, and by diet I mean feeding (or nutritional) habits we have, because, only then, we identify the necessity of transforming habits that can bring about balance and high energy to our bodies (click here to read the text about more energy through carbohydrates)..

The next steps connect us to our own consciousness. Remember that each food reacts differently in each body, that’s why it’s important to learn how to get our own body signals. As we know ourselves better we get better results through nutrition. Let’s follow this:

  1. Consuming more natural than processed food. Natural food contains more micronutrients, and these, in turn, are better absorbed by the body.
  2. Consuming food without mixing to determine if what we’re eating is good for our bodies.
  3. Consuming the most part of the food before noon, eat a little and, at least, 3 hours before bed time.
  4. Consuming liquids and solids, at least, 1 hour apart.

I invite you to do the test, send this post to any one who could be interested and share your own results to motivate other people through your own example.

I’ve been following these steps to keep my body healthier, it makes me feel like I have more energy, and my sleep quality and the speed of my digestion process have improved. If you’ve already done this, What have you felt by changing this habits? (click here to read the article about energy and nutrients through healthy fats)

Sublimation of Our Experience 5: Emotions and Feelings

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 on a mental (click here to read about mental reality), creative (click here to read about creative energy) , and sexual levels (click here to read about sexual energy), we can better understand the sublimation of emotions into feelings.

Emotions are reactive and unconscious energy in motion, arise from needs and beliefs that we have assumed as ours throughout our lives. We somatize them in the body and identify with them to the point where we think it is the language of our hearts. Emotions make us react according to what we have integrated, we go from tears to laughter, from affection to screaming, and vice versa. Feelings are active and conscious energy in motion, arise from needs and beliefs that are built from what is in our hearts, that which we flow in harmony with our environment from what we feel. We feel them in the body as a state of peace and coherence with our essence. We can act from our feelings, because our understanding of each situation expands according to our experience and the way we think, making us more assertive in our expression.

Knowing the emotions and feelings, we can follow 4 simple steps to sublimate our emotions constructively and in harmony with our essence and our hearts.

  1. Let’s ask ourselves: What thoughts do we have during the day that generate any negative or positive emotion? What daily situations intensify those thoughts and those emotions? Examples: as an example of positive thought and emotion, if we think that we are going out with someone we like, we feel like little butterflies in the belly and when they call us, thought and emotion intensify themselves. As an example of thought and negative emotion, if we think that someone is lying to us we feel the emotion in some part of the body manifesting impotence and when the person tells us something that we know, or think, is a lie, thought and emotion intensify themselves.

  2. How do we react when we feel those emotions in our bodies? Examples: for the first case the reaction may be to smile and get nervous, for the second it may be to shout and face the person.

  3. How could we work the emotion and act more assertively? Examples: to work the emotion we need deep diaphragmatic breathing until we feel calm. To act more assertively in the positive example smiling is still assertive, because it also feels in the voice, and to continue it is important that we ask ourselves if the person with whom we are going to go out is really someone with whom we want to build something together based in the reality of what the person is and what we are. To act more assertively, in the negative example, once the emotion is worked out, let’s think if we have been sincere, with ourselves and with others, and ask ourselves why we keep that person in our lives.

  4. Evaluate what we have allowed, because emotions take us to places and people so that we learn something that we did not want to learn through self-reflection. Understanding what we want from our hearts, it is the feeling of harmony with ourselves that guides us into our own path.

Today’s reflection is: What do we have to learn about ourselves through the situations we live?
