Your Higher Self, Your Shining Self

Your Shinig Self“The key to the universe lies dormant within the self, waiting to awaken through self-discovery”    Taejoon Lee

Hi!!

I’m really Happy to connect with You again.

Today we are going to talk about Your Shining Self and we are going to tap into who is your Shining Self,  understand why you want to connect with Your Shining Self, to explore what does spirituality really means and what role plays the spiritual practice in everyday’s life, and finally, How you can connect with Your Shining Self.

This will be an amazing journey of emotional self discovery and I’m excited to share this moment with You.

You see… I firmly believe that everything in Life happens for a reason.  Yes, there is a reason why I’m here with You now. There is a reason why You are here reading these words. My wish for You is that the message wrapped in this experience may manifest with clarity and love.

Are You ready? Fantastic!!

Who Is Your Shining Self? What is Thyself? Does the soul really exists? and if it exists, why it is not possible to see it?

There could be infinite questions around the topic of the soul. I don’t want You to believe what I’m saying blindly. This is just what make sense to me and it is part of my experience. Take what You feel is right for You. If You see some value in these words, take it. And compost what doesn’t resonate with You!

I believe, Your Shining Self, is that part of You that resides within You. That part of You that is the host of Your body. Ancient scriptures always said, “Your body is a Temple.”

What is a temple?

A temple is accepted to be seen the house of God. The house of a superior entity. The house of something that we cannot see, but we can feel and perceive.

The question is: If our body is a temple, and I’m assuming we can accept that,

Who lives in this temple?

Who is the entity that we cannot see, but feel, that inhabits this temple?

This is Your Shining Self. Religions and Spiritual traditions from all ages have underlined the existence and the importance of the soul. Our soul…

 How happened that our soul, that was floating around, drinking pina colada while playing and drifting around the clouds, ended up in our body?

We have to accept now that the reality we are living in is not the only reality existing. We have to accept that this reality, as we perceive is formed by very solid, dense and low vibrations of the Field. This is what make possible the manifestations of the world as we see it. But as the vibration increase or change, other levels of reality are manifesting all around us, levels of reality that are difficult to perceive at our regular state of consciousness. When Changing and our state of consciousness we are more likely to have experiences of the other realities surrounding us. Basically, what we are doing is aligning our vibrational frequencies to the vibrations existing in that reality.

My experience taught me that our Shining Self vibrates at frequencies that can be associated to the frequencies of the feelings of Appreciation, Love and Gratitude.

Have You ever had the experience of feeling heavy and depressed?  Feeling like  a suffocating weight on Your chest? Great!!, You have experienced low frequencies, generally associated with feelings related to fear, discomfort, shame… all dear  friends that made our life not so easy. Don’t you agree?

But

What happen when You feel grateful for something? What Happen when you genuinely appreciate something? What Happen when You care for someone with all your heart?

You feel lighter isn’t it? Maybe you can have a warm feeling around your heart or tingling sensation in your hands… This is because You are raising your vibrational frequencies, aligning with Your Shining Self… Who You really are.

YOUR TURN

I took inspiration, for the following exercise, from the Hearth Math Institute. They have developed technologies in that can measure the level of coherence of the heart-brain connection while observing the heart waves. What they found out is that emotions can affect the heart waves and the level of coherence of the heart-brain connection.

With a simple technique they were able to measure that was possible to            re-establish a coherent connection after an emotional disturbance.

Try it NOW!!

  1. Breath slowly and gently for 1 minute or 2, focusing your attention around the area of your heart.
  2. When you’ll start feeling relaxed and comfortable, think about something pleasurable for you. An event, a place or a person of the past, of the present or of the future.
  3. Keep on focusing on that image, and the positive feelings that are flowing in you.
  4. After less than 5 min. you’ll find yourself in a more relaxed and resourceful state.

Keep on practice and it will become automatic to do it whenever you’ll feel in an uncomfortable situation.

I’d love to hear from You and what do You think about the article.

Your Patterns rule your Life

“Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconscious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character. ” Steven Covey

Hi!! I hope You all had a wonderful Christmas time, and that you were able to spend it with the people you love the most! I had an amazing time too and I’m convinced that this year has been the most meaningful I have ever had.

Following the reflection on the last days, I decided that the topic of this post will be LIFE PATTERNS.

What are Life Patterns?

First of all I’d love to share with you the etymology and the dictionary definition of the word pattern, to better link it with what our life pattern are.

PATTERN: from the Latin PATRON: a model to be imitated.

PATTERN:a combination of qualities, acts, tendencies, etc., forming a consistent or characteristic arrangement: the behaviour patterns of teenagers.

What can we see reading these definitions? What really is a pattern?

A pattern is a model, a model that repeats or can be repeated over and over again.

Well… and what is the link between our patterns and our behaviour?

Well questioned!! What is behaviour? Behaviour is a series of actions, feelings and thoughts that, repeated over and over again, become part of our identity and the way we perceive ourself or others. A behaviour is just a series of patterns. First of all we need to understand how our mind works.

Tony Buzan, leading expert in the field of discovering human potential, offers an excellent analogy describing the working modalities of our mind. “Think at the brain’s capacity as a huge neural jungle. A jungle with billions and billions of potential connection and neural networks. Imagine the first person who attempts to run through the jungle; it is thick and they battle through. When the next person comes along in the same area, they will see a slight path trodden by the first person. After a dozen or so people have gone through, there is a clear flattened pathway and anyone coming to the jungle, will automatically use the path rather than go into the undergrowth. So, the one single pathway gets ever easier and an automatic choice.

Think about your patterns in the same way. Once you learn to think and respond in the same way, this way of behaving becomes increasingly automatic.

….I don’t get what you are trying to say… I got what patterns are… but what is the link between our patterns and our life?

Hey!!! Hold on!! I’m getting there!!

Now that you know that our patterns are what condition our behaviour and our perception of the world, leading our thinking process, we can use the same analogy to think about our life.

Think about your life as a series of repeating patterns. We, subconsciously, have a series of embedded patterns that we learned from our parents and society in our early childhood, which we are mostly not aware of.

Think about your life for a moment…

It never happen to you to say: “Oh… Not again…” and it seems you have had this experience before? Or: “Yes!! I’m always lucky when talking about..!!”…. etch…

Think about yourself financially, in relationships, with friends, in business…

What cyclical patterns can you see? What experiences, people and behaviours seems repeating in your life?

For example, I have a very strong self sabotaging pattern when talking about finances, and it seems it is “impossible” and difficult for me to save money. I am compelled to invest or spend what I have. I am now working on it, but before I wasn’t aware of it and I always ended up, for different reasons, being broke. But I have another pattern that set myself financially at at least, 1000£. So it always happen that I find a way and opportunities to back myself up.

I’m telling my story because I wish you can understand your patterns and, if they are not serving you or sabotaging you, you will do something about it. Awareness is the key of change.

…Wow… this is a complete new way of seeing life… I don’t believe it. Who is telling me you are right?

Well pointed. I’m not asking you to believe me. This is what makes sense to me, and this is what I believe. Just you can know the answer. Dig deeper within yourself and see if what I’m telling resonates with you.

Before I go I want to share with you what is the real impact of these patterns in your life and why you want to work on your patterns.

Life patterns are embedded in our subconscious mind and collective mind. Like everything in the Universe, they are a series of vibrating frequencies that attract the same energy and the same frequencies.

What does it mean? It means that if you are not aware of your patterns and you don’t work on them, you’ll keep attracting the same situations and manifesting the same reality in your life, however you like it or not.

If you need support working in depth and analyse your life patterns, contact me or send me a private message and I’ll be honoured to share with you the process I use, that so far, made a massive impact in my life, in particular in the area of relationships.

Overcoming Challenges: The fine art of Acceptancy

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA“I embrace the imperfections and celebrate them.”             Kesha

Struggles, desires, challenges, wants and needs. Sometimes, through the storms and winds of everyday’s challenges,  it seems there is no time or space to enjoy Life. It feels we are like little hamsters, trying to keep up running on our wheel of bills, responsibilities and duties.

Until last year I was running on this wheel. My thoughts were focused on how to pay my bills, how to have enough money for my basics, where I was going to get waisted on the weekend or planning a holiday in the best place to get waisted.

That thoughts and that lifestyle, even though I enjoyed it, don’t resonate with me any more. I’m now looking for something else, I’m now looking for a deeper meaning behind my actions and outcomes.

So, one sunny day of July 2011, motivated by the insightful and eye-opening Experience Week in the spiritual community of Findhorn in Scotland, the spiritual teachers and motivators I was listening to, I choose to change. I choose to take responsibility of my Life. I choose to identify my purpose and do the best I could do to live with integrity and do my part in the world. I choose to make the first step and allow the abundance I deserved to come into my Life.

From that moment, the moment I took that decision, my Life unfolded in ways I would never expected….

I’ve been given more challenges than before, more deep dark moments, more situations in which I didn’t now how I was going to make it. But it wasn’t all. Alongside with challenges I’ve been given all the help and the support to mature, grow and overcome them. I’ve been meeting loving people who became the friends that never hesitated to help me when I was in need and to celebrate joyful and happy moments. I’ve been given all the opportunities I was looking for in the field I’m working and I’ve been given the wisdom to follow through every tough moment.

…well… Have You ever found Yourself asking the question “Why me?” “Why do I have to through all this crap?”

You bet it!!! And it wasn’t long time ago since the last time. Have You ever experienced these moments where everything seems to go wrong? where health, finances and emotional balance seems to say goodbye, take a flight and go in holiday in the Canary Islands? It was one night, stuck in my bad with a terrible headache, I decided to listen to one of the conference call from the online seminar, Healing with the Masters, hosted by Jennifer McLean, interviewing the spiritual teacher Panache Desai.

It was the first time for me to hear his Truths. His words resonate within me immediately and his message, so clear and straight to the point, like an arrow, brake through my heart.

… and what was his message?

His message was very simple and comforting. I broke it down for You in little steps.

  • STRESS IS OUR CLOSEST FRIEND. IT SHOWS US WHAT CHANGES WE HAVE TO MAKE IN OUR LIFE.
  • THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU AND YOUR LIFE.
  • THERE IS NOTHING TO FIX.
  • EVERYTHING IS PERFECT AS IT IS. YOU AND THE REALITY YOU ARE EXPERIENCING.
  • EMBRACE EVERY MOMENT, EVERYTHING THAT YOU FEEL AND HAPPENS TO YOU.
  • EVERYTHING THAT YOU FEEL AND HAPPENS IS THE OPPORTUNITY YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOUR GROWTH. 

His key message is to EMBRACE AND ACCEPT OURSELVES IN THE WAY WE ARE AND OUR EXPERIENCE AS OUR GREATEST MASTER.

I’ve heard these concepts before, but now I was ready to really listen and learn.

And if You are here, it means You are now ready. If You are here it means that You want something more from Life and that You want to give more.

Well, I’m not saying this is easy to do, and I’m not saying that the pain of some experiences is easy to overcome. And it is fine to experience that pain, it is fine to experience that sorrow, it is fine to experience that frustration. There is nothing wrong with all of that. It is part of our human experience, it is part of our beauty. But we don’t want to stay stuck in this cycle. We want to acknowledge them just as they are: feelings. When we experience this new realm of reality, when we are willing to surrender to our experience, embrace it and learn from it, we are then ready to be thankful to what happened to us and to move on, grown and stronger than before.

….and what happens next?… what happens after I embrace my feelings and my experience?

I cannot tell You what will happen to You, that will be Your reality and part of Your own path. But I can share with You what happened to me. As soon as I stepped in this process, something amazing started to manifest. My body started healing immediately, I received a phone call who sorted out my financial situation and amazing opportunities opened up for the near future. It seems like somebody was just waiting for me to make this step. It seems like somebody listened to my call. I cannot express the feeling of gratitude I have now in my chest. I’m now certain that no matter what, everything is going to be fine, because, no matter what everything is fine in every moment.

Your turn:

If You are now facing a tough period in one area of Your Life, I’d love to share with You these steps that helped Me to detach, embrace, assess and brake through. I hope this will be useful also for You.

  1.  Take a breath. A very long deep breath.
  2. Focus Your attention on Your hearth, feel Your Heart, feel that sacred space, where no worries or problems are allowed, that place where You are an infinite field of possibilities, that place that is the realm of Love.
  3. Now say to Yourself, like talking to a little child, that everything is perfect as it is. That You are perfect as You are. That there is nothing to be worried about. That everything is fine. Ensure Yourself like You were the most important person in the world.
  4. Now ask Yourself the following questions and write down the first thing that comes into your mind. Don’t judge it, even if it seems it has no sense. Remember, there is no thing that is meaningless.
  5. What is in this experience for me? What can I learn?
  6. What is in this experience for Us? What can We learn?
  7. Knowing what I know now, what can i do different next time?
  8. Knowing what I know now, what can I say to myself next time I’m going to live this experience?
  9. And now be thankful to yourself, be thankful to your experience and be thankful to your emotions.
  10. You are now ready to move, stronger than before, wiser than before, and more focused than before. You now know what to do. Don’t wait more. Do it! and enjoy the gift of Life.
