Essential Autonomy

Version en español versão em portugues

One of the essential aspects we should integrate to our experience, in order to increase our personal confidence, is autonomy, since, as we understand who we truly are, and how to put that into context, we perceive that the construction of our lives totally depends on the level of commitment that we have with ourselves as social individuals.

Each one of us has a different level of autonomy in every area of our lives, from emotional to material, that must be adjusted as we advance in our path, since, above all, as part of society, it is essential to develop our autonomy in order to make decisions from our integrity, for constructing more efficient social models.

From our own experience, the following aspects need more autonomy to be developed and integrated as essential elements of our authenticity, since they build a self-confidence of solid foundation, that allows us to continue constructing from the certainty of our personal contribution:

  1. Personal Talents: we are all born with different abilities which can be potentiated, in several ways, through our own experience, when we recognize, integrate and put them into the social context, we can contribute in different areas that have the same purpose in common (click here to read about purpose).

  2. Coherent Expression: the more coherence there is between what we think, feel and express, the more energy focused on our purpose of peace we have (click here to read about the construction of peace).

As social individuals, it is essential that we cultivate the autonomy of building our authenticity, integrated to the social context we’re in, when we all contribute from our inner peace, thanks to total acceptance and integration, society reflects our integrity.

Manifesting the Relationship we Desire

Version en español versão em portugues

I’ve been through several moments in my life that have contributed to a wider and more responsible perception about relationships. The life lived from the mental and emotional worlds can lead to a desconnection of integrity and personal power, what leads to experimentation from voids, created by the illusion of separation that generates individualistic people. This is the foundation for having relationships with parcial, or total, absence of transparency, acceptance, respect and coherene, starting from the relationship with one self, and that keeps going until we decide to learn how to experience our lives from integration of our mental and emotional worlds with our hearts, our essence.

The relationship we have with ourselves is the only one we can actually manifest in our relationships with everything and everyone around us, the more transparent, coherent, respectful and whole we are to ourselves, the more we manifest that in our relationships (click here to read about reflections on relationships). Thats why our integrated relationship, with our lives, with the environment and with people, has clear purposes, to reveal in the present the consequences of what we’ve thought, felt and expressed, so we can transform the way we relate from inside out (click here to read about purposes in our relationships) .

Now that we understand that we can only manifest outer relationships from our current state within, we can reflect on these aspects that effectively take us to relate ourselves to everything around us in a more conscious way:

  1. TRANSPARENCY: this aspect starts with self-knowledge, because, when we discover our motives behind every decision, we can analize and align them to the truth of authenticity in unity within our heart. By being honest to ourselves we begin to feel our self-confidence increasing, what leads us to the certainty of expressing our talents, our desire of contributing, our innate universal connection, and, consequently, to manifest a reality in which the expression of truth is always our priority.

  2. COHERENCE: as we know ourselves, we perceive that we need to allow our perceptive system to expand, in order to align our expression to the personal wisdom of who we truly are, and integrate it to the context. Our thoughts need to be more focused on construction from contribution (click here to read about contributing), our emotions need to be felt and integrated to express integrity from our feelings (click here to read about sublimation of emotions) and our expression needs to be more integral, considering the context and our real ability of contributing.

  3. ACCEPTANCE: when we accept ourselves from our essence, and understand that we are all in a process of constant experimentation of our own reality, we get to accept and understand everything and everyone around us. Our power of decision is focused on ourselves, we are responsible for what we construct and for the impact it has in society, we must be the example of the integrity and the peace we want from the world (click here to read about constructing peace).

  4. INTEGRITY: when we connect to reality as integral beings, whole, that have all what is necessary to contribute from our essence, we are ready to build in the whole as a cell, by assuming the role we are meant to, from a purpose that integrates all the areas of our lives, and that manifests relationships focused on its construction. In a state of integrity we are able to love from freedom of being who we are and embrace everything and everyone for who they are, we understand that every relationship is part of the construction and according to its purpose in our lives we must decide and act (click here to read about constructive relationships).

From the truth of our heart we construct relationships that connect ourselves to each other and strengthen the structure to build up, since we accept differences as an integral part of the whole, and we perceive from the essence of the moment. We perceive life as a moment, we live it as if only the present exists with the purpose of leaving an integral legacy that serves as an example to evolve in unity, from love, from integration.

Love,
Ángel

Building solidly, integrating our essence

Version en español versão em portugues

For me, it has been a great discovery to perceive that not everything that seems “good” really comes from the heart or is the most appropriate for me. During our life we’ve been used to make judgments about everything we perceive, and we generally say that someone has a good heart because, apparently, they help the world, people or animals, selflessly, and that, has become fashionable also in business, then, when someone wants to have a highlight, to be perceived as someone with a good heart, makes charity in a “disinterested” way, but, does that really come from the heart or is something built by the mind from the judgments that are in society?

We are all born with the potential to be what we want, from the worst person to the best (from any of the perceptions of society), everything depends on where we are going to direct our energy (thoughts, feelings and expression), for, any side that we choose, our mind is armed with reasons to justify that what we do is right, and others must follow us because they are wrong, but, in reality, each of us is on the appropriate way to learn, in some way, what we need. We exist to constantly learn, when we don’t do it, we suffer, but, what if we decide to learn with ourselves from now on?

To build something with solid foundation, it is necessary to start with self-knowledge. When we focus our energy on something we don’t like or we’re not good at, at some point what we have built is destroyed, because only real confidence in ourselves, in our abiliities and in our own talents, leads us to make more assertive decisions and build from our own foundation. Let’s see some important points to construct solidly:

  1. DESIRES: Throughout our lives, we create many desires that come from the mind, from our attachment to material things and people, to compare ourselves to others. All this leads us to channel our energy where people tell us we can have better results, often without caring for ourselves or others, sometimes even ignoring law itself, and, there, we spend our lives in what we think we need to be happy. It is important to remember that fullness is in the present moment, and that the desire of the heart (click here to read about connecting to our heartsleads us to act here and now, taking firm and sure steps to construct from our talents and integrated gifts. We must be the owners of our own desires and learn to give them shape every minute, with every thought, with every feeling, with every word, with every action and with every gesture. Our desires are never too big or small, so, it is important that we learn to live more authentically, to love and integrate what we are.

  2. COHERENCE: From our relationship with ourselves, passing through the relationship we have with our family and with the environment we live in, it is important that we are aware of what we need to relate with respect and transparency (click here to read about transparency). Let’s exercise coherence between what we think, feel and express, so we can really be coherent and bring that energy completely to all areas of our life that are really a priority for us.

  3. HELP: Actually nobody needs help (click here to read about helping vs. contributing), what we need is assistance in what we’re not specialists, to be able to construct. By dedicating ourselves to “helping” people who we believe need it, because they ask for it or because we believe they truly need it, we’re not giving assistance for them to build, but giving what they want to stay in their comfort zone, therefore, it is essential that we learn to know ourselves better and to connect to our hearts to be able to contribute with what’s truly aligned with who we really are.

Let’s begin to connect more lovingly  to ourselves, the more we accept ourselves, the more assertive our decisions are, avoid judging what seems good or bad and let the heart takes us through the path of our tranquility, always respecting everything and everyone around us (click here to read about harmony of energy). To have a more conscious and transparent world, we don’t need to be the best, we just need to be the most whole version of ourselves.

We Empower Our Mindset

Version en español versão em portugues

It’s wonderful to perceive, through our own experience, that our minds can be our best allies in order to empower ourselves (click here to read about personal empowerment), we just need to focus them on what we want to construct from our hearts, hence, enhancing our results in every single level.

To understand our mental habits, it is essential to perceive the thoughts that come to us during the day (click here to read about keeping our minds present), we are so used to them, that we can probably feel surprised about the quantity of thoughts of doubt that emerge about ourselves and our personal processes, in all the areas of our lives, that block us from the lack of trust in ourselves, since, some of us have grown up while looking for everything that could give us material satisfaction instead of developing and work from the authenticity of our own talents.

By taking into account the fact that we can assume the responsibility about our thoughts, it is essential to reprogram, coherently, the way we live our personal experience in the world (click here to read about reprogramming thoughts).To do so, I share with you the beliefs I have integrated, in the last 2 years, that have empowered my belief system from authenticity in unity (as we aligned our thoughts, feelings and expression to them, we perceive that our reality transforms itself):

  1. WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT: we have diferent talents, motivation, environments we develop in, ways of expressing ourselves and perceiving the world, etc., and all these aspects have infinite combinations, therefore, we need to invest our resources in, constantly, developing them and putting them into practice, according to our own context, hence, focusing our energy on constructing ourselves authentically to build integrity (click here to read about self-knowledge).

  2. WE ARE ALL PART OF A WHOLE:  through our experience we can perceive how everything is organized into systems, just as cells work to keep the body working, we can also recognize ourselves as cells of society. From this perspective we learn to contribute through our authenticity for the construction of a  sustainable and peaceful society (click here to read about building consciously).

  3. WHAT WE ALL WANT IS PEACE: in spite of the satisfaction we believe we get from having a life full of inner conflicts that manifest themselves out (because we haven’t experienced other state due to our lack of self-knowledge) we all want to be peaceful, to truly flow with who we are and to connect to people and situations that enhance our peace. We manifest peace on the outside when we are peace from within, when we know ourselves and accept our essence, is in that moment that we start constructing from our own example, through conscious actions, a society that self-regulate itself due to its high degree of consciousness and connection (click here to read about constructing peace).

  4. WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT WE MANIFEST IN OUR REALITY: our thoughts, feelings, words and actions (or reactions, when there is unconsciousness) build up every day the reality we live in, so, in order to experience on the outside our peace within ourselves, it is necessary to create different ways of thinking, feeling, and expressing ourselves, understanding that everything has an impact where we’re in. Through sublimation, we can transform the way we vibrate, in order to connect to our hearts and increase the vibratory frequency of our purpose (click here to read about sublimation of our reality).

These four beliefs have been extremely empowering, they make me reconnect to new ways of expressing myself and embrace the world every moment, and to the certainty of always being at the appropriate moment and place for developing my purpose as a cell part of the whole. What beliefs have been empowering you lately?

Love,
Ángel

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).

Fasting for Self-knowledge

Version en español versão em portugues

In our lives we’ve perceived that our relationship with food is very important, whether we are conscious or not, because we are what we eat and the way we eat. Thanks to this perception, I’ve had three moments in my life in which I’ve decided to invest my energies in absolut fasting, and several other moments in which the fasting has been partial, suspending food, or habits, which make me feel with low energy. In both cases I’ve had constructive experiences in which my energy levels have increased, I’ve clearly perceived the way of organizing my priorities and I’ve increased my knowledge about the emotional world that unconsciously has governed certain reactions manifesting in my reality. During those processes, I have experienced a greater sensitivity to everything that surrounds me and what is inside me, that is, my consciousness has expanded.

Hunger is a signal that the body emits, mainly because it needs nutrients or energy, in other instances it comes from a belief that food fills voids, which creates an impulsive emotional need to eat. This is the main reason why refrain from consuming nutrient-poor foods, for example, it’s useful to know some of our motivations mentally, emotionally and nutritionally, since the nutritional needs of our body require a smaller amount of more nutritious food.

Let’s read some crucial aspects to make a conscious absolut fasting, which allows us to expand our personal perception:

  1. Free time: choose a moment (maximum 3 days) in which we can be calm and as disconnected as possible from the world, hence our perception and our energy remain focused on the reactions of our body.
  2. Volume of food: one or two weeks before fasting, it is ideal to reduce the amount of processed foods, and animal origin, and invest in fruits and sprouts. After the fast, invest in the consumption of juices with germinated seeds and introduce gradually the solid foods, perceiving the reaction of our body to each one.
  3. Relaxation and breathing: during fasting it is important that we stay relaxed and focused on breathing, because oxygen is essential in the process of cell nutrition..
  4. Sensitivity: during the fasting process our sensitivity increases, as well as when we maintain a diet as natural and appropriate as possible. Our perceptual system is more alert and receptive, we can feel more subtle information about everything that surrounds us and what is inside us.
  5. Body Consciousness: to make a fast, we must pay attention to our bodies, to understand their needs before, during and after the fast, so we keep it at the appropriate levels to make an easy process.

It is important that we learn about our basic processes of nutrition as human beings, in this way we can maintain our appropriate energy levels and a healthy and efficient body.

Ángel

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?

Focusing Our Fanaticism

Version en español versão em portugues

Throughout our lives we’ve had the opportunity to perceive how fanaticism has been used as a segregation tool, even though it has the potential to be used from integration. Our desire to be right about what we believe generates conflicts, because we all live our experience from different perspectives, so if we really want to construct peace, it is essential that we exercise the idea of ​​being fanatics of what unites us to integrate ourselves as social individuals: our integrity

Let’s see some aspects to focus our fanaticism on our personal integrity, by integrating the science of things and our personal experience:

  1. Let’s know ur bodies: through our will we exercise our whole body, that’s why by knowing better how cells work and their nutrition (click here to read the text about cell regeneration), muscles, bones, joints, and their respective integrated functions, we can transform our nutrition to construct our health and improve our disposition, regardless our age. Remember that there must be constant maintenance and use for everything to function.
  2. Let’s understand our mental world: what we believe can always be transformed, then, does everything we think give us peace of mind? If the answer is no, it is time to analyze and transform our beliefs in a way that encourages ourselves to construct from the differences (click here to read the text about reprogramming our thoughts).
  3. Let’s transform our emotions: emotions make us react to the world, by recognizing what we feel inside whenever they are present, and accepting them, we can build feelings that allow us to connect with respect to act in a more appropriate way (click here to read the text on sublimation of emotions)
  4. Let’s construct our expression: transparent, coherent and integral communication requires a conscious and constant construction where we integrate what we feel, think, say and do to project our intention to construct peace. This is done through self-knowledge and the exercise of acting aligned to our purpose in all areas of our lives, while investing in our personal talents (click here to buy the book 7 Levels for Personal Empowerment that shows us how to exercise our integrity ).

Exercising fanaticism for our integrity we begin to perceive how the world around us is transformed, since, by focusing on integrity, the way in which we interact is also transformed (we exercise respect, transparency and coherence with ourselves, expanding our intention beyond what we could imagine).

Since everything works differently for each one of us, we learn to respect other processes and even integrate them if we feel they make a difference in our own lives. This way we use fanaticism to recognize what construct ourselves and apply it effectively in our personal habits, without the need of imposing it on others.

Ángel
