Constructive Mind: 4 steps to reprogram our thoughts

Version en español

versão em portugues

For being conscious about our expression (gestures, words, actions, emotions) the first step is exercising the mental presence, which we get through the integration of our perception of the world and our attention, as we read and practice at the post 4 steps to keep our minds in the present (click here to read the full article).

When our minds are present, we can focus them on our own construction, but, how can that be useful? Easy, let’s start working on it by parts. On this post, we’ll understand how to use the present mind for reprograming our own thoughts, since they are responsible for one third of our humor and energy level (for the other two thirds our perception and our expression).

All of us have grown up in different environments and, unconsciously, we are constantly subjected to information that makes us focus on the “destructive” side of life. And, as it is what we receive most, we see that our conversations with people become a fertile field for us to talk about others, complain, feel sorry, quoting tragedies, in short, talking about something we’re not able to transform. And that, efectively, influence our humor and energy.

Let’s focus our attention on how tuning in, consciously, with the constructive side of life for reprograming our thoughts (click here to read about empowering habits). Let’s follow these 3 steps daily until we integrate them to our habits:

  1. Looking for constructive information sources to replace destructive information. Through the internet, television, people we interact with, etc. For example, instead of looking up for what’s bad for our bodies, looking up for what’s good.
  2. Perceiving the thoughts that appear during the day. If they makes us feel worried, anxious or any destructive sensation let’s find constructive personal motives to resignify them. For example, I think I need money to pay a bill, I see I can organize a raffle, do an extra job or sell something no longer useful and I realize I can get the money, then I focus my thoughts on the action that I’m going to take to get the right amount, maybe I could get more.
  3. Focusing our thoughts on ourselves, and the projects we’re involved in, since is where we can, efectively, take responsibility for the transformation. Why thinking on the motives of other people, that are their own responsability, if we can use this time to expand our consciousness and construct ourselves? Let’s think about it.
  4. Finding, at least once a day, a place where we admire everything we perceive with our senses, and we feel calm, and think about every constructive thing we have experienced and how we can integrate that into our lives, into our projects.

It’s our decision to choose what we want to connect ourselves to (click here to read about connecting to our hearts). The more people aware of their own lives and willing to contribute in an assertive way, the better results we have reforming the world we live in, building every day with more assertiveness and innovating to transform whatever is necessary. I choose to connect myself to everything that contributes to my integrity to transform the world with the contribution of everyone and everything around me, what about you?

Let’s share this easy method with people who want to recover their energy and feel empowered.

Love,

Micronutrients Part 2: Regenerating our cells

Version en español

versão em portugues

Now that we understand that, in order to nourish ourselves better, we need to eat less but with more quality (click here to read the first part of the Micronutrients series), we can better understand how functional foods are integrated to enhance cell regeneration.

Our cells regenerate themselves if we give them the appropriate environment and time to do it, that is why we must avoid excesses, both of things considered “good” and those considered “bad”, all that our body really needs at a nutritional level (micro and macronutrients) must be consumed consciously in the appropriate measure for our own body, that is why it is so important to perceive the reactions that arise to each food that we consume separately, considering that there may be reactions from the moment that we smell it, until the moment it leaves the body completely (click here to read the article on expansion of nutritional consciousness).

Now, let’s imagine that every constructive habit we have (nourish ourselves, breathe better, do some physical activity, take care of our emotional health, sleep better) is promoting cell regeneration and maintaining the functioning of our body stable, and that every destructive habit we have (consume empty food, smoking, drinking excessively, staying emotional, breathing inadequately, being sedentary, sleeping poorly) is increasingly degenerating each of our cells and, consequently, our organs, causing alterations in the functioning of our body and leading ourselves to states in which we can not continue to be empowered of our own lives, because we are increasingly dependent on what helps us to recover our natural state of health (which we have created with our own destructive habits, and we can also reverse them).

Understanding better that we can assume the responsibility for really taking care of our body, as a main priority, since when having health we can perform better in what we enjoy doing, let’s see how functional foods, those full of essential nutrients that enhance our health, assist us in building an appropriate environment for our cells to continue their regeneration process bringing health to our body and higher levels of energy:

  1. CONTRIBUTION OF CLEAN ENERGY: By consuming natural foods, rich in micro and macronutrients, which are accepted by the cells, the cells can continue their process of obtaining what they need without having to fight what they can’t accept, therefore their energy is clean and focused on maintaining its functional process in our body. This is mainly done by fruits, vegetables, cereals, nuts and seeds, because of its high content of carbohydrates and healthy fats.

  2. GROWTH AND REGENERATION: While our body is growing, it needs material so that the cells can divide and form the necessary structures. When we reach adulthood, the cells need the proper material to keep themselves in constant regeneration and to renew dead cells of organs. like the skin. For growth and regeneration, the main foods are cereals, nuts, seeds and water (mineralized), due to their high content of proteins and minerals.

  3. REGULATION: Inside the cells, chemical reactions take place that need, especially, the presence of vitamins to occur. Here we find the need to consume fruits, nuts, vegetables and water (mineralized), due to its high content of vitamins and minerals.

I have a diet based on fruits, vegetables, cereals, nuts, germinated seeds, and the appropriate amount of mineralized water for my body, which is where I can find all the nutrients I need, the only thing I consume from animal sources are eggs (once or twice a month), they are my source of vitamin B12 (for now), since I prefer to feed properly than include any type of supplement in my diet. And you? On what do you base your diet? Does it work for you?

Micronutrients Part 1: Nourishing More Eating Less

Version en español

versão em portugues

We need to understand that our body works as an integrated system and that our health must be constructed minute by minute with more conscious decisions to reconnect ourselves to our bodies, and all that they mean, when we really want to enhance our energy and our health in the present.

Micronutrients are nutrients that the body needs in small amounts to function properly. In this group we find vitamins and minerals, which can be found in greater quantities, and with a better level of absorption, and in less volume of food, in functional foods. As we have discussed before, the intestine is the place where absorption of nutrients occurs (click here to read the full article on absorption of nutrients), it is for this reason that it it is very important that we learn to perceive what our body wants to transmit to us. Through the chemical reactions that occur, such as the lack, the increase or the balance of our energy, the pains or the easy flow, the alterations in our normal vital functions, all these are responses to a chemical reactions within our organism (which, clearly, are also related to our mental and emotional state – click here to read the article of sublimation of our mental, emotional, creative, sexual and sentimental worlds).

Each of the cells in our body needs an appropriate amount of water, which, in order to be retained, needs the presence of minerals, nowadays we need to include in our diet the consumption of sea salt, or Himalayan, to mineralize the water we consume and adjust the levels of iodine in our bodies (click here to read about the importance of iodine in our diet). An appropriate amount of healthy fats is necessary for the body to perform some specific processes of assimilation and transport of essential vitamins (click here to read about healthy fats). All the processes in our body are connected to bring us health, for that, it is important that we begin to invest in learning to adapt the diet that best fits each one of us, remember that we are all different and, for this reason, it is necessary that we give more attention to our body and integrate foods of greater nutritional value to our diet. Here we have some foods that are excellent sources of nutrients and that we can include in our diet to make our own body processes more efficient:

  1. Flaxseed: this seed contains macronutrients as fats (healthy Omega 3 and 6), carbohydrates, vegetable protein and large amount of soluble fiber. Of the micronutrients contains vitamins E, B1, B2, B3, B5. B6 and minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, sodium, iron, zinc and selenium. The best way to consume it is leaving 20 grams of seeds to soak (at least 24 hours) to start the process of germination and enhance their nutrients, wash them to remove excess of phytic acid and consume them liquefied with a fruit of our preference.

  2. Almond: this fruit contains macronutrients as fats (healthy Omega 3 and 6), carbohydrates, vegetable protein and large amount of soluble fiber. Of the micronutrients contains vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B6, B9 and minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, sodium, iron, zinc and selenium. The best way to consume it is to leave 20 grams of almonds soaking (at least 24 hours) to start the process of germination and enhance their nutrients, wash them to remove excess of phytic acid and consume them with a fruit of our preference, they can also be liquefied.

  3. Broccoli: this vegetable contains more nutrients than the others, since it has large amounts of vitamin C, folic acid and beta-carotene, potassium, calcium, iron, selenium, vitamin E. The best way to consume it, is cooking it with whatever we are eating, as with rice, to improve the absorption of its nutrients.

  4. Olive Oil: this oil contains vitamin E and vitamin K, which makes it beneficial for our circulatory system and to maintain a correct coagulation. The best way to consume it is to use 2 tablespoons, at room temperature, alone or as an accompaniment to a meal. It is important that we choose oil packed in dark glass bottles to maintain the nutrients and the quality, and avoid oxydation by sunlight.

Let’s be more aware of the reasons why we consume the food we consume. Much of what we eat may have been the unconscious habit of many people for many generations, but today we have much more information and food available to learn to choose what is good for ourselves. Let’s try diets with more nutrient-rich foods and see our energy increase in all areas of our lives.

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)

Chakras and Earthly Experience

Version en español

versão em portugues

As we integrate information more consciously, we realize that all areas are a reflection of human beings, for example we can see in civil engineering how it is essential to build solid foundations, with quality materials, from a clear purpose, or in agronomy the importance of nurturing and caring for what we sow, then, now, according to the purpose of the title of this text, we can integrate the energetic concepts of the chakras into our earthly experience.

According to different perspectives in the world (Hinduism, Theosophy, Gnosticism, New Age) the chakras are the main energy centers in our body and are integrated into our physical, mental, emotional, sentimental and expressive world. Currently we can find 7 chakras directly related to our earthly experience, for this reason the connection list between chakras and our lives has 7 points, let’s understand how we can integrate them to our experience in a constructive way:

  1. Experience from birth to 7 years old (chakra muladhara/root): this chakra, represented by the color red, is that of our anchorage to the earth, as children we need to learn to relate to the environment, to communicate, to develop our safety , so it is necessary for us to be as integral examples as possible for the children who arrive on the planet.
  2. Experience from 7 to 14 years old (chakra svadhisthana/sacrum): this chakra, represented by orange color, is our creative force/expression and energizing center, it is time to acquire habits that build our cells and discover our talents, to learn how to create/express from our hearts what we flow with, so it is necessary to foster conscious experimentation, and with proper guidance.
  3. Experience from 14 to 21 years old (chakra manipura/solar plexus): this chakra, represented by the yellow color, is the center of our emotions, the whole belief system that we have received (consciously or unconsciously) manifests itself into emotions, and so we begin to relate from a more energetic point of view that can be used to learn about our interaction with others to decide what we want to take from everything we have learned to our next phase. When, during this period, we feel at peace, the tendency is for us to strengthen our identity, otherwise we will enter into a search for something that we haven’t learned until we feel that we’ve found it. With solid foundations that allow us to be who we really are, and express ourselves constructively and transparently, we use this period to enhance what we have perceived and constructed since birth.
  4. Experience from 21 to 28 years old (chakra anahata/heart): this chakra, represented by the color green, is the center of our feelings, where we integrate our experience. This period leads us to understand, in a more rational way, that we can build feelings and realities from our belief system and our expression. Realizing that, what manifests itself in our life is 100% our responsibility, from our decisions, we can focus on constructing our integrity by understanding that everything has an effect around.
  5. Experience from 28 to 35 years old (chakra visuddha/throat): This chakra, represented by the blue color, is the center of the expression/communication of our own truth. For this chakra to be developed it is essential to be connected to our natural talents, to our true identity, to the idea that we are all part of the same living organism. In this period, with the certainty of what we want to construct, we find the need to express ourselves in the most assertive, transparent, coherent and respectful way possible, this allows us to connect more authentically with everyone and everything around us. Our actions, words, gestures and expressions align with our heart.
  6. Experience from 35 to 42 years old (chakra ajna/third eye): this chakra, represented by the indigo color, is the center that allows us to clearly perceive the motives behind actions, as we perceive reality as it is, our abilities empower us even more because we learn to relate more assertively to appropriate beings to construct as a team and to make more conscious and assertive decisions in all areas of our lives. Here the tendency is to find the appropriate measure of everything for our own life.
  7. Experience from 42 to 47 years old (chakra sahasrara/crown): this chakra, represented by the violet color, is the center of our sense of belonging to the whole, allows us to understand that everything external is a reflection of within and we are more conscious about what we want to manifest from our vibration (feelings, emotions, thoughts, words and actions) to construct with the most appropriate conscience from our talents integrated into the context.

These processes can be developed at any time in our lives, our perception allows us to accept the experience as it is, it is always time to integrate different perspectives that allow us to find our center of peace, where we integrate our 3 lower and higher chakras, our heart . As a prism we can crystallize our experience from the colors.

Cell Regeneration: 6 foods to increase protein daily intake

Version en español

versão em portugues

We are all different and it is important that we learn to understand our body signals to feed it in a more efficient way. Following the 4 steps to expand nutritional consciousness (click here to read the full article) we are able to get in touch with the reaction food causes and integrate that into our diet. Remember that is necessary to detach from some limiting beliefs (click here to read the article about beliefs) about certain foods, as we read in the last articles, in order to transform , efectively, feeding into nutrition (click here to read about cell regeneration and micronutrients).

Let’s define feeding and nutrition to see the difference. Feeding consists on comsuming substances to keep our vital functions, is the way we give energy to our bodies. Feeding occurs, mainly, based on the awareness of macronutrients, proteins, carbohydrates and lipids (fat). Nutrition consists on providing substances necessary for our preservation and growth, here we perceive the body as an organism in constanc evolution and regeneration that needs macro and micronutrients, vitamins and minerals, to keep the balance and, consequently, create a perfect health state.

In the book Human nutrition in the developing world (available in English atFood and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations – FAO website), Professor, Michael C. Latham, talk about proteins as follows. Proteins contain carbon, hydrogen, oxigen, nitrogen and, often, sulphur. They are particularly important as nitrogenous substances, and are necessary for growth and repair of the body. Proteins are the main structural constituents of the cells, and they make up the greater portion of the substance of the muscles and organs (apart from water).

Proteins are necessary:

  • for growth and development of the body;
  • for body maintenance and the repair and replacement of worn out or damaged tissues;
  • to produce metabolic and digestive enzymes;
  • as an essential constituent of certain hormones, such as thyroxine and insulin.

Although proteins can yield energy, their main importance is rather as an essential constituent of all cells. All cells may need replacement from time to time, and their replacement requires protein.

Any protein eaten in excess of the amount needed for growth, cell and fluid replacement and various other metabolic functions is used to provide energy, which the body obtains by changing the protein into carbohydrate. If the carbohydrate and fat in the diet do not provide adequate energy, then protein is used to provide energy; as a result less protein is available for growth, cell replacement and other metabolic needs. This point is especially important for children, who need extra protein for growth. If they get too little food for their energy requirements, then the protein will be diverted for daily energy needs and will not be used for growth.

Now that we know the importance of the proteins for our body it is necessary to ask ourselves some questions to discover if we are having an appropriate daily intake of proteins:

  1. What foods do we consume every day?
  2. Do we know if they contain proteins?
  3. What is the amount of protein we consume daily?

If in our diet are missing sources of protein we can integrate these foods into our diet:

  1. Almonds (21 grams of protein per 100 grams) – ALL BLOOD TYPES EXCEPT AB
  2. Nogal Walnuts (15 grams of protein per 100 grams) – ALL BLOOD TYPES
  3. Macadamia nuts (8 grams of protein per 100 grams) – ALL BLOOD TYPES
  4. Peanut (26 grams of protein per 100 grams) – BLOOD TYPES A and AB
  5. Linseed/Flaxseed (14 grams of protein per 100 grams) – ALL BLOOD TYPES
  6. Boiled Eggs (13 grams of protein per 100 grams) – ALL BLOOD TYPES

Remember that the cleaner our intestines are the better nutrients absorption will occur, so it is important to keep a healthy diet with enough water and fiber (click here to read the article about nutrient absorption).

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 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. 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.

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