6 Indicators of Presence and Gratitude

Version en español

versão em portugues

To get in touch with new ways of perceiving the world, we need to be more aware of our own processes and how they influence our interaction with the environment. In this process the mind is essential, because, as a present ally, it can profoundly transform what we consider an inevitable fact and, connected to the heart, teaches us to be grateful for everything that exists (click here to read about elevating our experience).

Bringing the mind to the present (click here to read about present mind) is one of the best strategies to perceive that the miracle of life is in the small details, a smile, a hug, a joke, the sun coming in through the window, a tea in good company, a landscape of concrete or nature that we have every day in front of us, in short, everything that seems the same and routine begins to be perceived as unique and wonderful, we can only perceive the unicity of each moment when we allow ourselves to broaden our perception.

Here we have 6 indicators that show us that we are more present and grateful.

  1. We pay attention to the smallest details
  2. We use our senses more intensely to connect with everything and everyone
  3. We integrate better what we feel to what we live
  4. We perceive the uniqueness of each moment
  5. We learn more about the situations we’re living and the people we’re communicating with
  6. We transform ourselves constantly aligned to our purpose and context.

Choosing to live life from gratitude and infinite learning we connect with other angles of the same reality and we get to recognize magic in the now. We can choose to perceive every moment as a miracle.

Forgiveness Part 1: Definition and Resignification

Version en español versão em portugues

Talking to my friend Lina María (author of the EA Portal), we perceive that is necessary to break some paradigms about forgiveness so we can understand it better and integrate it to our lives in an easy and effective way. Because of it, this and the next posts are focus on the action of forgiving, going through the definition, break of paradigm, resignification, integration and application of forgiveness, integrally, in our lives.

The word forgive is defined as ceasing to feel resentment against someone. Integrating this definition to our personal experience, it is common that we perceive forgiveness as a superior way of relating to people or situations that, from our perspective, have hurt us. Now we are ready to break the paradigm of forgiving.

When we uderstand that comparisons, judgement and faults are part of a model that needs to be transformed for us to learn to relate in a more transparent, authentic, respectful and responsible way, to construct and remodel, sustainably, our planet, it’s necessary to break the paradigm that fogiveness makes us superior and resignify it as the integration of the ideia that we are responsible for choosing if something, efectively, affects us or hurts us.

Normally we feel hurt when a situation doesn’t go as expected, but, the same way we can blame others for what they say or do, we are also able to take responsibility for the expectation we have created for us to feel well, accepted, loved, etc, and for allowing others to enter and stay in our lives. If we analize a little deeper, feeling hurt comes from a need of control, from the desire of controlling our lives, and the people and situations in it. Let’s see this steps that lead us to connect to a side of our human nature that lets us low with our hearts:

  1. Seeing life as a constant learning: when we go into each situation, with all our senses, we can perceive elements that can lead us to a broader understanding of who we are.
  2. Being grateful for every minute of our lives: we can choose to see our lives as a miracle, be able to breathe or do what we de can always be a motive of gratitude and every lesson too, painful as they may seem, show us that we are more than we think.
  3. Putting into practice the exercices  to bring our minds to the present (click here to read the article about present mind), excercising the empowering of beliefs (click here to read the article about beliefs) and accepting people and situation as they are.

 

Let’s share our forgiveness experiences in the comments so that we can broaden our viewpoints. The subject of the next article is guilt and how to resignify it and integrate it into the process of personal forgiveness.

Love,
Ángel
