The Story of a Being…

Version en español

versão em portugues

Today I tell you the story of a being in alternate state who lived on the top of a hill and sang odes to the wind. His being assimilated the intense understanding that it is his expression that fill him with love. Once the issue was understood, he perceived that if he did so, his energy circulated and put himself into a state of joy and plenitude.

This is the tail of an easy and practical dynamic, of how we transform ourselves by reliving the simple motivational moments, which we have always carried in our hearts. When we do what is born from our hearts we raise our vibration frequency of peace, we enter a state of flux and reconnection with ourselves and everything that exists around us.

By doing simple things like singing, laughing, cooking, sharing, reading, writing, or anything else that we do with love, we feel new dimensions of the same situations and perceive new aspects of the same people. It is wonderful to perceive how inclusive and simple actions can expand our perception and teach us that there are always other ways to channel energy, like directing it to build habits that make us feel more connected to everything and everyone around us.

We can make a list of everything that is taking us away from feeling at ease and another one of everything that generates peace to ourselves. Then, we are able to turn those habits that connect ourselves to the fluidity of the present moment into daily habits, and start exercising the expression from our heart (integrity, coherence, transparency and respect) (click here to read about empowering habits).

Setting Boundaries: how to build personal respect

Version en español

versão em portugues

As we expand our personal awareness we increase our connection with who we really are (click here to read about transmutation of the being) and by getting new habits we empower our roots, believes and needs, this way we are able to access a part of us that motivates us to exercise respect (click here to read about respect).

Many people have transmitted that everything comes from within and it is really as simple as that. When we want to be respected it is very important that we know how to respect, from the heart. But, how do we know if we are respecting or not, if we don’t know our own personal boundaries and others’ (click here to reflect on respect)? Here self knowledge, self confidence, respect and transparent communication have an important role, since only our own selves are able to know what we really want, like and need, and when that is aligned to respect and constructivity, and that way is communicated, it is really from the heart.

Following these steps we can be more assertive when setting our own personal boudaries from the heart:

  1. Empowering beliefs: we have beliefs that leads us to a lack of self respect. For example “if we say “NO” we stay alone” or “saying always “YES” is necessary for being a good person”. These are beliefs, when we open up totally without setting any boundaries we hurt ourselves and set an example to everyone around us, that’s why it is very important to observe the reason why we’re not building what we desire (click here to read about empowering beliefs).
  2. Inner connection, our desire: getting in touch with who we really are helps us design our lives and build the boundaries necessary for our development. If we want a job where we can have a flexible schedule we can find it, so we must send our CV to the companies that offer this benefit or create our own business (this would be a limit that helps us build what we want). REMEMBER THAT WHAT WE WANT FROM HEART IS ALWAYS CONNECTED TO TRANSPARENCY, RESPECT AND CONSTRUCTIVITY (click here to read about recognizing what is from the heart).
  3. Clear Boundaries: when we decide what we want in our personal, professional or loving lives, we can set clear boundaries that bring the results that we want. These boundaries must be aligned to the heart, that is, being detached and understanding the other’s freedom of being, so that we can build assertively.
  4. Comunication and application: to conclude the process it is important that we communicate our reality to the parties involved and apply what we desire. If we desire a relationship full of fidelity, loyalt, respect and freedom of being who we are, we must act coherently with that desire, work on ourselves what we want so we can offer it too.

This is an important cycle to connect in a more loving level to the world, making a habit of it we feel that our relationships transform themselves and get more peaceful.

After two years of working at an office, I realized that my desire is being with people and help them to be the best version of themselves and having time during the day to take care of myself, the boundary I set over time was “working where I can help people and take care of myself”. That, totall, changes my life. What about you? Have you ever set a boundary that changes your life?

Sublimation of Our Experience 1: Definition and Contextualization

Version en español

versão em portugues

Today, while taking my pump of nutrients juice, I reflected on the fact of feeling ecstatic when I consume it, and it is not only because its flavor gives me pleasure, but because everything that it represents in a nutritional and energetic level, for me, makes it one of the sacred things in my life. I have realized that we can build sublime feelings about things that seem simple and to which we normally do not 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 to convert (something inferior) into something of higher worth, elevate it to a higher degree.

During our life, 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 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, this week we will focus on knowing simple ways to sublimate diverse areas of our lives from the smallest details.

The reflection for today is: What have we sublimated that is destructive for us?

A hug,

Constructive Habits: 2 steps for us to analize and empower habits

Version en español

versão em portugues

The last few days there have been many conversations related to habits, which we can perceive as the way to represent our discipline. We often think we are not disciplined because we fail to do what we think would be more constructive for us, but the truth is that we are disciplined with our destructive habits and we also have an emotional attachment that we need to release when we really want to transform our lives.

The issue is not being disciplined, but being free to be the most appropriate for ourselves, according to what we live.

When we evaluate the cause of our destructive habits, we usually find ideas based on beliefs, or an unconscious channeling of our own energy. On the other hand, our constructive habits usually have a purpose within our experience, and they fit into our lives because they make us connect to our flow state (constant levels of fluid energy, tranquility, reconnection to ourselves, health, etc.).

Perceiving this way, we can apply these two steps to identify and replace habits that have no constructive purpose in our life at this time:

  1. Let’s choose a habit and ask ourselves: What do we do that for? Why do we do it? How much time do we dedicate to this habit during the day? Does it have a constructive purpose for us and those around us?
  2. If the answer to the last question is NO, we can continue. Now let’s ask ourselves again: What could we do in that time we invest in the destructive habit? Is there any constructive habit we want to include in our lives? Can we build something different during that time?

Remember, habits are all reactions, or actions, we repeatedly manifest in our lives as wanting to be right, being worried for the approval of others through what they think or say about us, justify ourselves for everything, continue conflicts, etc. Everything can be transformed when we analyze through love what really construct ourselves. Every constructive habit, we integrate, takes us out of a vicious circle and leads ourselves to a spiral of evolution based on self-knowledge.

Love,
Ángel
