Have you ever wondered how your perception takes form?
You might think it’s a result of the stimuli your five senses perceive, or simply your point of view.
And yes, those are important elements to consider but if you go deeper, you’ll realize your perception towards everything in life is determined by your beliefs, and the content you entertain in your mind.
Here’s the thing, you’re always giving meaning to things, but when you’re driving yourself with fear, anxiety and frustration that’s how you perceive life. As opposed as when you’re optimistic and you see positivity all around you.
And it doesn’t mean that if you're in anger or joy you're a worse or better person. What’s important is to be aware of the beliefs that you live by, and the content you feed your mind with.
So if you tend to be negative, you're going to see negativity and unfriendliness everywhere. And if you’re...
In 10 years, what would you regret not doing today?
If you haven’t thought of this before, let’s talk about elevating your consciousness.
I like to explain it in this way…
When you look at it you see that the ocean is not just there on its own. There are rocks, sand, fish, boats, the sun, people swimming in it, and much more.
But are any of these things the ocean?
The answer is no. That is just content that we perceive as part of the ocean, but they are not the ocean.
It is the same with your consciousness. You have your consciousness and you have content in your consciousness.
Content filled with perceptions, ideas, beliefs and thoughts.
Now, the importance of having awareness of the content you entertain in your consciousness lies in the fact that the mind will always entertain first the content that is designed to keep you alive!
I once heard a story of a man called Michael.
Michael was at a personal development seminar and he was asked to walk around the room and introduce himself to at least one person, and share the story of his life.
So he introduces himself to a guy and says…
Hello, my name is Michael and what brought me here is that 20 years ago I had an accident that changed the course of my life. This accident made me so ill I almost died.
I was in a coma and when I woke up my bones were broken, I went through lots of surgeries and I became very depressed because the people I thought would be there for me, weren’t. I was in pain.
The guy responds: “I’m sorry Michael but I don’t think that’s true.”
Michael looks at him confused and says… “What do you mean? I’m telling you the story of my life.”
The other man tells him: “Just give it another try.”
Michael tries again:...
When you don’t know how to master the mind, when you don’t know how to use the mind as a tool, the mind uses you. This is why it’s so important to understand why the mind is how it is!
I once had a very profound experience where I was able to enter into my mind and ask myself a few questions, to which I received some very profound answers.
My mind said…
You know what? I love you so much. I’m working with what I have but if you give me more elegant information I’m going to be reacting in a more elegant way.
Now, let me tell you something about the mind.
The mind is all about keeping us alive in this world and lots of thoughts emerge as a result of this task that the mind has.
90% of the thoughts you’re thinking today, you’re going to think about them tomorrow and the next day, and the next day.
We live in a residual of thoughts and that’s why we wake up every...
I grew up praying to God like most people do.
I was taught that praying was like having a conversation with God, and most of the times I was asking. Asking God to change things or to give me something, and giving thanks for what I already had.
But as I walked down my spiritual path, I discovered the most magnificent technology there is! One that transformed the way I look at praying.
Affirmative Prayer, also known as spiritual mind treatment.
If you haven’t heard of it before, Affirmative Prayer is based on the Principle of Oneness. You don’t pray to a source outside of yourself. Instead, you affirm the truth of who you are, of what is.
There are 5 steps to it:
You recognize the nature of a Divine Source of Energy. You know and affirm God (Spirit/Source) is all there is.
It is the acknowledgement that you are one with God, with Source. That there is no separation and...
The first time I heard this from my beloved teacher Michael B Beckwith I didn’t understand what it meant. Now that I do, and I can tell you it is a very profound truth about our existence.
"We're in this world, but we’re not of this world."
What this means is that you are an eternal being.
We are an intangible spark of light that was never born, and will never die.
The beautiful, expansive energy that we are, comes into this world, collapses into a human body and that is how we begin the journey of the human experience. The adventure called life.
But as we reach a certain age we fall out of grace. We slowly grow into the realization that life can be like a bumpy road and so we forget that we are eternal beings.
We start living as if we are from this world, this world of matter is all there is.
Things can get overwhelming. We can feel powerless...
"Nature is never rushing, yet everything gets accomplished." Unknown.
There is a spiritual practice that very few people use in their path.
Let me tell you something about people like you and I.
We learn about healing modalities like healing our ancestors, healing patterns of behavior and healing addictions.
We learn about setting boundaries, about letting go of limiting beliefs, about meditation. We become diligent students.
We learn about these things and then we embark on the journey. But as we’re walking our path, an inner chatter begins…
“You gotta do it better. Is not enough. You're broken, you have to fix yourself.”
So we push through the healing process. And although there is a time for pushing and stretching, if that is the only thing we do, we could tear ourselves apart.
We demand so much that we forget to be gentle with...
The Nature of the Universe, the nature of God, the nature of Source is JOY.
I remember the amount of joy and playfulness that I had when I was a little girl. I'm sure you remember that too.
But as we grow up we are conditioned to be so serious.
We get so caught up in life's circumstances so easily that we even forget how it feels to be joyful.
We insist on thinking about the past or rush into the future.
In my case, I tend to look at the future a lot. Always waiting for the next thing.
But I know that one of the reasons why children express so much joy is because they live in the present moment.
So lately I've been practicing bringing myself to the present moment with all of my being.
Right here. Right now.
And what's been happening is magical: Joy visits me.
I say magical because I don't really do anything other than letting go and being fully present in the moment. Just by dropping everything else I can tap into joyfulness.
The heart is the most powerful source of electromagnetic energy in the human body, producing the largest rhythmic electromagnetic field of any of the body’s organs. The heart’s electrical field is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the electrical activity generated by the brain. This field can be detected anywhere on the surface of the body. Furthermore, the magnetic field produced by the heart is more than 100 times...
