Sexual Energy

Version en español
versão em portugues
Understanding and knowing our sexual energy is essential to recognize the intensity of our motivation and make us conscious about the result we get, according to the way we channel it.

Sexual energy can be better understand as creative energy, it is the energy that starts expanding when a purpose has been stablished, and its level of manifestation is directly related to the intensity used, to go for what we desire, and how safe we feel from the confidence in our capacity to build.

Our sexual energy can be approached from the human animal instinct (necessity) and from the intuition and connection with our heart (abundance), this last one represents the sublimation of the first one and is achieved through a process of recognition and integration of our mental, emotional and physical worlds (if you want to apply this process I share on the book 7 Levels For Personal Empowerment you can buy the book by clicking here).

We channel our sexual/creative energy from our belief system, everything installed in our mind, conscious or unconsciously, directs the energy to put it into action. Each decision made is part of the construction of our purpose.

Connecting to our purpose of peace makes us analize our usual decisions and actions, so we can transform them into steps to build our inner peace on the outside from our authenticity.

Love,
Ángel

The Game of Life

Version en españolversão em portugues

Life is, basically, a game in which we learn the basic rules of the place we’re in, in order to “fit” in the present model. When we think about that as a puzzle, it’s like trying to place a piece by forcing it where it doesn’t fit naturally, at the end it manifests incoherence. When we start questioning ourselves about everything in our lives, we perceive that there are game strategies that allow us to know ourselves deeply, so we can really fit in that puzzle in infinite expansion, then the result is coherent.

By using the concept of the puzzle in our lives, we can perceive that we have many possibilities of forcefully fitting our own pieces, everything we are, either because of the power of our mind or the unconscious patterns we carry, but only one way of fitting everything naturally: building up from whatever potentiates our peace.

Then, here are some actions we can integrate to our lives, to inspire integrity from our example, for us who want to build a coherent, transparent and sustainable society from integrity:

  1. Authenticity: being authentic goes beyond what is evident, is truly knowing ourselves, understanding what truly potentiates our inner peace and put it into practice, to build from our talents integrated to our personality, the appropriate way of contributing in this moment, stopping following models to start following our heart.

  2. Contribution: by exercising our authenticity, we understand that competition becomes obsolete, since we learn to build our own dreams without the need for winning or desiring the same that other people, this is the way we truly contribute, we just do what’s necessary from the certainty of who we are from our essence (click here to read about integration of our essence).

  3. Expression: as we contribute from our authenticity, we perceive the importance of adjusting our personal expression. The way we think and feel is so aligned and coherent that when we make a gesture, take action or express any word in disalignment to them, we perceive there are other ways we need to seek and exercise to give coherence and power to what we transmit, specially when we are conscious about the importance of being the example of what we want to build up as society.

The most important rule of the game of life is: thought, feeling and expression must be aligned to a purpose, it’s up to us to decide to do it from our purpose of peace (click here to read about activating our purpose mode).

Ángel

Potentiating Our Breathing

Version en español versão em portugues

Breathing is an essential part of our nutrition process, since the oxygen that goes into our lungs is transported to all the cells of our body, in order to do the cellular respiration process, that occurs in the mitochondria, and that, through the oxydation of the nutrients given to our bodies from our nutrition (click here to read about micronutrients and cell regeneration) produces the energy our body needs to keep our vital functions, and allow ourselves to take our creativity to action (click here to read about creativity from sublimation).

As we know our bodies better, we get to understand that there’s a more appropriate way of breathing in order to use 100% of our lung capacity, and increase our energy levels by eating just what is appropriate for us in our present moment (click here to read about nurtiring more by eating less). By following these simple steps we can potentiate our breathing process:

  1. Position: the most appropriate position for a more efficient breathing is being with our back straight, whether lying or sitting, with the shoulders open and the abdomen contracted.

  2. Inhalation: for a more efficient breathing, it is essential to inhale the air through the nose (for those who have had rhinitis and have gotten used to breathe throught the mouth, we gradually need to get used to breathe through the nose so the air can find its own way inside the nasal space click here to read about how I got rid of rhinitis), since our nose serve as a filter for the air we breathe.

  3. External movement: as the air enters the lungs, the external movement of expansion must begin in the upper abdomen (where the diaphragm is) and expand towards the sternum (expanding the chest and keeping the shoulders still), when the air comes out, the contraction movement begins in the sternum and ends in the upper abdomen.

  4. Exhalation: when we have totally expanded our sternum we can start exhaling slowly through the nose.

To increase our lung capacity, we can perform this complete nasal breathing by counting the seconds as we inhale, hold the air, exhale and wait to start the process again. As we increase the number of seconds in these processes, we perceive an increase in our tranquility and our personal and creative energy. The idea is to maintain this breath at all times, so we need to integrate this practice to perceive its effect in all areas of our lives.

Love,
Ángel

Manifesting the Relationship we Desire

Version en español versão em portugues

I’ve been through several moments in my life that have contributed to a wider and more responsible perception about relationships. The life lived from the mental and emotional worlds can lead to a desconnection of integrity and personal power, what leads to experimentation from voids, created by the illusion of separation that generates individualistic people. This is the foundation for having relationships with parcial, or total, absence of transparency, acceptance, respect and coherene, starting from the relationship with one self, and that keeps going until we decide to learn how to experience our lives from integration of our mental and emotional worlds with our hearts, our essence.

The relationship we have with ourselves is the only one we can actually manifest in our relationships with everything and everyone around us, the more transparent, coherent, respectful and whole we are to ourselves, the more we manifest that in our relationships (click here to read about reflections on relationships). Thats why our integrated relationship, with our lives, with the environment and with people, has clear purposes, to reveal in the present the consequences of what we’ve thought, felt and expressed, so we can transform the way we relate from inside out (click here to read about purposes in our relationships) .

Now that we understand that we can only manifest outer relationships from our current state within, we can reflect on these aspects that effectively take us to relate ourselves to everything around us in a more conscious way:

  1. TRANSPARENCY: this aspect starts with self-knowledge, because, when we discover our motives behind every decision, we can analize and align them to the truth of authenticity in unity within our heart. By being honest to ourselves we begin to feel our self-confidence increasing, what leads us to the certainty of expressing our talents, our desire of contributing, our innate universal connection, and, consequently, to manifest a reality in which the expression of truth is always our priority.

  2. COHERENCE: as we know ourselves, we perceive that we need to allow our perceptive system to expand, in order to align our expression to the personal wisdom of who we truly are, and integrate it to the context. Our thoughts need to be more focused on construction from contribution (click here to read about contributing), our emotions need to be felt and integrated to express integrity from our feelings (click here to read about sublimation of emotions) and our expression needs to be more integral, considering the context and our real ability of contributing.

  3. ACCEPTANCE: when we accept ourselves from our essence, and understand that we are all in a process of constant experimentation of our own reality, we get to accept and understand everything and everyone around us. Our power of decision is focused on ourselves, we are responsible for what we construct and for the impact it has in society, we must be the example of the integrity and the peace we want from the world (click here to read about constructing peace).

  4. INTEGRITY: when we connect to reality as integral beings, whole, that have all what is necessary to contribute from our essence, we are ready to build in the whole as a cell, by assuming the role we are meant to, from a purpose that integrates all the areas of our lives, and that manifests relationships focused on its construction. In a state of integrity we are able to love from freedom of being who we are and embrace everything and everyone for who they are, we understand that every relationship is part of the construction and according to its purpose in our lives we must decide and act (click here to read about constructive relationships).

From the truth of our heart we construct relationships that connect ourselves to each other and strengthen the structure to build up, since we accept differences as an integral part of the whole, and we perceive from the essence of the moment. We perceive life as a moment, we live it as if only the present exists with the purpose of leaving an integral legacy that serves as an example to evolve in unity, from love, from integration.

Love,
Ángel

Sublimation of Our Experience: Special Edition

Version en español versão em portugues

Through our personal experience, it is perceivable that we can build sublime feelings about things that seem simple and to which we normally don’t give much importance, it is a matter of living the moment fully and expanding our consciousness about ourselves. This is called SUBLIMATION, which, according to the dictionary definition, is to convert (something inferior) into something of higher worth, elevate it to a higher degree.

During our lives, almost always unconsciously, we have sublimated several things, some of them destructive, connecting them with the way we felt emotionally and mentally at a certain moment, and we have also related aspects, which can be constructive for us, with negative moments on an emotional and mental level. When we start to realize that, we perceive the origin of many of our vices to food, to cigarettes, to emotions, to games, to people, to sex, to drugs, to drinking, etc., and we discover that we can consciously connect to more constructive habits through the feeling of love to ourselves.

Each action brings consequences, whether in short or long term, that is why it is important that we begin to choose more consciously and assertively the decisions we want to make to impact our lives, our health, energy levels, relationships with ourselves and with others, etc., constructively. For this reason, it is essential to know simple ways to sublimate diverse areas of our lives from the smallest details.

The reflection is: What have we sublimated that is destructive for us? Now that we have the answer, let’s read about the sublimation of our mental, creative, sexual, emotional and sentimental world, in this same article that is a special edition, focused on the expansion of consiousness, the broadening of perspective about what we can call invisible and sensitive world (ethereal?).

1. SUBLIMATION OF OUR MENTAL REALITY: Foundation of our relationships

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 that to us, 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, this builds our self-confidence up.

  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’s focus our energy on intention (thoughts, feelings, expression) 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 is: How much time do we dedicate per day to sublimate what is constructive for us?

2. SUBLIMATION OF OUR CREATIVITY: Flow state

When we nourish an empowering reality, that reconnects ourselves with our trust within on ourselves and on our lives, we start integrating inner and outer information we receive in a more authentic way for expressing it, by questioning ourselves more about what comes to us, because we realize that we all are different and, at the same time, make all part of the collective reality that exists.

Now that we own a more constructive mental reality, and based on what is most appropriate for ourselves from our own experience, we are able to integrate some steps to increase our personal connection and let our creativity to flow, in every area of our lives.

  • Hydration: Are we conscious about our bodies’ quality of hydration? Example: the water we consume must have essential minerals to hydrate ourselves, so we can mineralize water with marine salt and a little baking soda, and solarize it, for me the result has been great, my body works better and ask for less liquids during the day. Let’s make researches and try them with our own bodies.

  • Nutrition: Do we eat to feed or nourishing ourselves? (Click here for reading full article about expanding our nutritional consciousness). Example: when we eat thinking just about balancing carbohydrates and proteins, we are ignoring minerals and vitamins, that are essential for the proper functionality of our bodies. I have stopped eating meat and dairy because I’ve realized that my intestine absorbs functional nutrients better and I need to eat less to feel more energized and healthy (click here to read about micronutrients and cell regeneration).

  • Breathing: Do we know the quality of our breathing? Example: our breathing gets shorter and we only use a part of our lung capacity to oxygenate our bodies. I’ve integrated a deep diafragmatic breathing during the day and I’ve felt more connected and at peace.

  • Cell regeneration: Do we sleep enough and give our bodies what they really need? Example: our bodies need certain time for regenerating and regulating themselves during sleep time, that is why it is so important to know how long we need to sleep in order to wake up energized. As I improve my nutrition, I realize that my body needs less time when I eat only what is necessary (click here for reading full article about cell regeneration).

By giving attention to our energetic levels, in an integrated way, we allow our creativity to easily flow at any present time, we get to connect to our flow state.

The reflection is: Do we really investigate about the processes that allow us to expand our personal consciousness? 

3. SUBLIMATION OF OUR SEXUAL EXPERIENCE: Potentiating love

Sexual energy is also creative energy that, when sublimated in a constructive way, connects ourselves to our essence through love. Our sexual energy is connected to attraction processes in our own perceptions, that are able to strengthen connections through our emotional, mental and/or physical world. As we read in sublimation of our mental reality, we only perceive the things we pay attention to, so, as we know ourselves better, through our own experiences, we have the option of expanding our own personal consciousness, in order to learn to connet to our own personal signs, and, that way, in a more assertive way to the world.

By recognizing how our emotions, thoughts and perceptions influence the way we experience our sexual energy, we can follow 3 simple steps to sublimate it in a constructive way and in harmony with everything and everyone around us.

  • Let’s ask ourselves: What motives lead us to live our sexuality as we have decided to experiences it? What do we feel and think after a sexual act or an orgasm? Example: my motive to iniciate my sexual life was low self-esteem, I always thought that sex was a way of controlling my partner to have him by my side. While I had that thought it was common for me to feel in pain and empty, as if I lacked something I could not find outside myself, I often felt tired, as if I had no energy, but I thought that was normal.

  • Having our destructive thoughts, and emotions, identified, we can work on them by transforming them into constructive actions that empower ourselves. Example: By doing my own reasearch I realize that it wasn’t normal to feel the way I felt, so I started reading about diverse issues and feeling more my own self every moment, the consciousness about my own seual energy expanded itself and now I perceive that it not only a matter of my emotional, physical and mental worlds, but it is also about my sentimental world and the emotional, physical, mental and sentimental worlds of the person I allow myself to establish a relationship in that level.

  • Let’s focus our energy on our present and learn something new about ourselves and the ways of having a more constructive impact on our own relationships through our personal interaction integrated to our inner signs.

Today’s reflection is: Do we focus our sexual energy by personal convictions or for pleasing others?

4. SUBLIMATION OF OUR EMOTIONS: Constructing feelings

Emotions are reactive and unconscious energy in motion, arised 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, arised 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

The reflection is: What do we have to learn about ourselves through the situations we live? (click here to learn exercise of emotional awareness)

Sublimation of Our Experience 3: Creativity

Version en español versão em portugues

By subliming our mental reality (click here for reading the full article about sublimation of our mental reality),  we open up a door to connect ourselves to our creative energy, since when we flow along with our lives, we get to trust more on ourselves and on our capacities. Today, the main subject is the sublimation of our creative energy.

When we nourish an empowering reality, that reconnects ourselves with our trust within on ourselves and on our lives, we start integrating inner and outer information we receive in a more authentic way for expressing it, by questioning ourselves more about what comes to us, because we realize that we all are different and, at the same time, make all part of the collective reality that exists.

Now that we own a more constructive mental reality, and based on what is most appropriate for ourselves from our own experience, we are able to integrate some steps to increase our personal connection and let our creativity to flow, in every area of our lives.

  1. Hydration: Are we conscious about our bodies’ quality of hydration? Example: the water we consume must have essential minerals to hydrate ourselves, so we can mineralize the water we intake with marine salt and a little baking soda, and solarize it, for me the result has been great, my body works better and ask for less liquids during the day. Let’s make researches and try them with our own bodies.

  2. Nutrition: Do we eat to feed or nourishing ourselves? (Click here for reading full article about expanding our nutritional consciousness). Example: when we eat thinking just about balancing carbohydrates and proteins, we are ignoring minerals and vitamins, that are essential for the proper functionality of our bodies. I have stopped eating meat and dairy because I have realized that my intestine absorbs finctional nutrients better and I need to eat less to feel more energized and healthy.

  3. Breathing: Do we know the quality of our breathing? Example: our breathing gets shorter and we only use a part of our lung capacity to oxygenate our bodies. I have been integrated a deep diafragmatic breathing during the day and I have felt more connected and at peace.

  4. Cell regeneration: Do we sleep enough and give our bodies what they really need? Example: our bodies need certain time for regenerating and regulating themselves during sleep time, that is why it is so important to know how long we need to sleep in order to wake up energized.

By giving attention to our energetic levels, in an integrated way, we allow our creativity to easily flow at any present time.

The reflection for today is: Do we really investigate about the processes that allow us to expand our personal consciousness? 

A hug,
Ángel
