3 questions to detach from food beliefs

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?

3 tips to detach from the limiting vision we had of our own selves

Version en español

versão em portugues

The first step to have a healthy relationship with ourselves is RESPECT, that’s why we’ve asked the 3 questions to tranform our self-relationship (click here to read full text). The second step is TO DETACH, stop identifying ourselves with the image that other people have about us and with the possible wrong image we can have about our own selves.

When we define us, it seems like we get to the limit where there’s anything we can change or improve because, simply, we are this way. It’s a way of saying to ourselves that we are fated to that. That’s the reason why it’s very important to check, consciously, the definitions and find a way to transform them, since that makes us feel hopeful and increase the confidence in ourselves.

Today, let’s follow some tips in order to detach from the limiting vision we have of our own selves:

  1. Decide what we want to transform (click here to read about deciding by conviction).
  2. Look for situations where we can exercise our changes.
  3. Focus our energy on the new actions until they become habits (click here to read about constructive habits).

In each definition we find about us, there’s a transformation potential, so, let’s start working on an aspect right now until we can integrate it in our lives. Our nutrition (click here to read about conscious nutrition), our communication, our physical activity, our breathing perhaps? Right now is the moment to start.

We can be whatever we want, the most transparent, coherent and integral way possible.

Love,
Ángel

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).
