Creating Consciousness About Our Coherence

Version en español

versão em portugues

Lately, I’ve perceived the movement that exists in social networks, where people feel free to be themselves, or, better, to express their opinion about what they live. From there, arises this text about our coherence, something that apparently we haven’t been taught or we haven’t learned, because we have failed to question the absolute truths that we have believed in and have integrated into our reality. Whatever we do, consciously or impulsively, we have an impact on ourselves and on everything around us, our consumption patterns and the way we express ourselves. The way we treat ourselves is how we treat the world.

When we decide to use labels, we need to find the real reasons to do so, in this way we strengthen our conviction (click here to read about deciding by conviction). If we don’t consume meat to save animals, but we use leather accessories and don’t give ourselves the necessary nutrients to save ourselves, are we being coherent? If we complain about pollution, but we have a vehicle that contaminates and we buy products that during their process and discard pollute too, are we being coherent?

It is important that we become aware of our coherence if we truly want a life in peace. We only reap what we sow, so we need to learn to respect ourselves if we want to be respected, to take care if we want to be cared for, to love if we want to be loved, to accept if we want to be accepted, but, above all, to use and align our thoughts, feelings, words and actions, to construct the life we really want to live. Here are some questions that may be useful for us to decide our next steps in life with more coherence and consciousness:

  1. Do we want to construct relationships, of all kinds, that build peace? (click here to read about differences).

  2. Do we want to experience the sustainable development of our planet?

  3. Do we want to act in favor of constructing something from our integrity and our coherence? (click here to read about constructing peace).

  4. Do we want to work as a team truly contributing? (click here to read about contributing).

  5. Do we want to encourage authenticity in unity?

We’ve always been the only ones responsible for constructing our life and the society we live in, so, if we really want different results, we must become what we expect from the world, even if we need to learn new ways of living life, or have to create them. We can construct peace (click here to read about peace from consciousness), consume what’s necessary, invest more time and resources in self-knowledge and experiences, know and work with our talents integrated to our personality, do what we love, love what we do, put ourselves on the same level through responsibility and connect as humanity. What are we waiting to start constructing? We can take the first step right now.

Manifesting the Truth of Our Heart

Version en español

versão em portugues

As we grow up, and know ourselves deeply through our decisions and experiences, we get to identify what keeps us flowing in our peace and whatever keeps us away from it, either positive or negative. This process of self-knowledge and self-analysis is essential for us to learn how to identify the truth from our heart and the “truth” that comes from our belief system (that has built our emotional world in an unconscious way, that is often very desaligned from our heart, mainly because of the belief of separation).

As well as we are able to connect to what our mind believes that is our reality (belonging to extremes in order to segregate due to the desire of competing and comparing), we’re able to connect to the integral wisdom of our heart, the one that leads ourselves to act from our peace in order to learn, in an objective way, about our own experience from our personal perception, from integrity, aligned to the context, putting our mind to its service to construct from authenticity in unity, and contribute effectively.

For manifesting the truth of our heart, it is essential that we consciously connect to our perceptive system, here, I share these simple actions that we can integrate to understand that our life depends less on personal opinions (from us or others) when we live it from transprency, respect, integrity and coherence:

  1. FLOWING WITH CONSCIOUSNESS: to flow with consciousness it is necessary that we install the belief of acting from integrity, coherence, respect and transparency, since, this way, we tune our mind into the vibratory frequency of our heart. Having this belief that potentiate our heart from the mind, we need to perceive the signs we receive through our perceptive system and flow where we truly feel peace (if we have too many options, we need to increase our tuning with our heart, there is an exercise for doing this that has been very useful to me [click here to learn the exercise of integrating emotions], since it integrates the vibrations from emotions and thoughts, that creates distraction in any extreme, so we can go back to our center).

  2. ADJUSTING OUR COHERENCE: our heart knows that everything external is just a reflection of the internal, that shows us if it’s necessary to make any adjustment or if we’re on the appropriate path for ourselves, due to it, in order to potentiate our heart’s wisdom through our mind, we must install the belief that everything we judge, or have an opinion about, positively or negatively, is a reflection of us that allows ourselves to learn and adjust our vibration from our personal experience. For example, we want peace and we blame everything around us because that peace we want is not manifesting itself, yet we’re still full of inner conflicts, therefore, the absence of external conflicts can only be manifested when we have found our inner peace, that is accepting and integrating everything we really are to the social context we’re in, as building agents part of the whole. Here, we can integrate the exercise of integrating emotions in order to understand from our peace what we need to adjust when it comes to our thoughts, feelings and expression (click here to read about our coherence).

  3. ALIGNING OUR EXPRESSION: in order to align our expression to the vibratory frequency of our heart, it is necessary to exercise different ways of expressing ourselves, listening with full presence, communicating just what we have the certainty that contributes to the external construction of our inner peace, in the present moment, focusing our attention on truly knowing ourselves and doing what’s most appropriate from our personal talents and abilities. Installing the belief that our thoughts, feelings and words are powerful, allows us to perceive the importance of aligning them to a purpose that permeates all the areas of our lives in order to potentiate the desire of our heart with all the intention.

  4. EXERCISING AUTHENTICITY IN UNITY: this would be the most important belief of all, since it strengthens our discernment in order to find the appropriate measure of everything in our lives, it prepares our mind to perceive the connection between everyone and everything, to build respect from our habits, to remember that all our decisions have an impact on the system, on the whole. By expressing who we truly are, the existing barriers start falling down, and just what’s truly essential for our lives remains and reveals its perfect purpose in our existence (click here to read about connection to neutrality).

The truth of our heart is usually expressed in a certain degree of unconsciousness mixed with our mental models and emotions, it’s up to us to potentiate it from our mind and be conscious of acting by encouraging integration in all the areas of our lives, since, this way, we expand this model to society through our example, and create more connective ways of relating to each other as social individuals.

Learning to Say “NO”

Version en español

versão em portugues

There is an issue that is important to understand for us to have more peaceful relationships, the fear of saying “NO”. This fear is born of the need of keeping everything as it is because we think it is the only way to live and interact with people around us. Over time, some of us have learned to please people we interact with (friends, family, colleagues, etc.), we feel that everything is easier when we perceive that, apparently, everyone is satisfied with our actions, and we leave aside what we really want, and need, in order to see others smiling, sometimes with the desire to be good children, parents, friends, colleagues, etc., because it is the only way we have related to people and we are used to that.

Sometimes we avoid the word “NO”, even though we feel it is necessary, because we assume people will think or say something specific about us, and we fear how the consequence can impact our image. It is important that we remember that it is impossible to please everyone, even within our family nucleus we can find people who disapprove our actions, no matter how kind they may seem to us, it is here that we perceive the importance of being more authentic, at least, this way we relate to people who authentically have more affinity with us (click here to read about self-knowledge and sublimation)..

Saying “NO” can be as healthy as saying “YES”, for this, it is necessary that we know ourselves as well as possible and transmit that in the most assertive way possible to the people we relate with. Let’s see some cases to understand the reasons behind the answers we give in the situation we find ourselves in:

  1. Case 1: If we say “NO”, do we feel bad for the reaction that others may have or because we really want to say “YES”? If the answer is due to the reaction of others, it is important that we question the reasons why we don’t really want to do what they ask from us, because we find answers within ourselves that lead us to make more assertive and authentic decisions, because we need to focus on what brings us peace independent of the external.

  2. Case 2: Are our decisions made because of the dependence we have for someone? In some moments of our life we can feel obliged to do things in exchange for something material or emotional. Sometimes, when we feel dependent on something or someone, we become submissive to the power of the other, therefore losing our identity and the respect that we have for ourselves. It is essential to evaluate if our actions come from our desire or from our need to fulfill certain obligations that have been created by the dependency.

Saying “NO” is essential in some cases for us to understand what we are creating in our lives, from reflection, and for starting our path of constructing peace through recognizing what our hearts needs for its purpose.

Rescuing our identity is the best way to tell ourselves that we accept ourselves and that we are willing to flow with everything we are, even if it implies the disapproval of the people we have as a priority in our lives, because, only then, we can create space for the true relationships that our heart desires to manifest (click here to read about constructivity of relationships).
