We left ourself last time with the question:

What fear is preventing You for taking the next step?

Fear of changeFear of success?Fear of failureFear of uncertainty?

Fear exists in no other place than in your mind. Your mind has been conditioned from the early stages to look for dangers in order to protect you in your everyday life. Every changes, everything that our mind doesn’t perceive as familiar (i.e. safe) brings a certain level of uncertainty. And uncertainty brings a lack of certainty. The certainties of what you have now, of your status quo, of your self-image, of how you perceive yourself.

A change on your outside world is a change in your inside world. As soon as you embrace the fact that in order to live your purpose, in order to be happy, in order to live the life you want you need to change.

As soon as you live your changes with flexibility, an open mind and trusting the universe that what is going to come into your life is for the good of you and of humanity as a whole.

As soon you accept that change and flow is part of your everyday reality, you stop resist the flow, you stop going against the change but you align with the change, you dance with the flow.

The most important shift that must happen into your mindset is to see change as an opportunity to be lived with curiosity, not as a scaring event to be lived with resistance.

What does make you think that what is going to happen is going to be worst that what you have now in the current situation?

Who is telling you that the next step is going to be a step backwards instead of a step forward?

Let me tell you… there is no such a thing as a step backwards. You are constantly growing, constantly moving forward. Day by day. Hour by hour. Minute by minute. Moment by moment.

NOW STAND UP!!!

Stand up for what you value! Stand up for your life. Stand up for what you want and what you deserve.

Get up from the couch of your comfort zone.

Build momentum and keep moving.

Don’t you know the direction yet?

I’ll give you a tip. Find what scares you the most and move towards that direction. Let me repeat it. Find what scares you the most and move, small steps, towards that direction. Build momentum with little action steps and celebrate all your successes along the way. Build momentum so you have the energy to break through that fear when it will happen.

I am sure you can do it. The fact that you are reading this article now, is telling me you are committed to your success and to find alignment with who you really are.

I wish You a Purposeful and Successful Life!

You are affected by your patterns pt. 2 The Pattern Loop

thinking patterns“Your Ego, what you and other people perceive about yourself, is a series thinking patterns… Every pattern you think is the trigger of another thinking pattern and so on.” Simone Vincenzi

Ciao Belli!!! This is the follow up of You are affected by Your Patterns, a successful post I wrote a couple of weeks ago. If haven’t read it yet I invite you to read it before moving on! Enjoy your readings and please like and share it with the world!!!! ahaha!!

Moving on…

I am sure you can agree with me you have your own pattern for every given situation isn’t it?

NO??? Think about your life. How many times you can say: “It always happen to me??” Or how many times you do the same things over and over again?

And this is perfectly normal, this is how we function. Our breath is regulated by a pattern, our heartbeat, each single movement we do or word we speak. Even every single thing we feel is regulated by a pattern.

Also, as you can clearly see, every pattern, automatically, is the beginning of the following pattern. Creating a cycle.

I call this cycle: Pattern Loop.

What do I mean about Pattern Loop?

A Pattern Loop is a cycle of patterns where each pattern is the trigger of the following pattern.

Let me repeat it again for you:

A pattern loop is a cycle of patterns where each pattern is the trigger of the following pattern.

Let me give you an example.

Gigi started his day waking up. 1st pattern, that triggered the “going to toilet” 2nd pattern, who triggered the “washing up” pattern and so on…

But now I want you to imagine ..

If a new pattern is introduced in that routine what will then happen?

Let me give you an example. Let’s say the new pattern of not waking up and stay in bad clicks in. What pattern in your opinion will be triggered next? Gigi, obviously, will not follow the series of patterns it was used to follow.

Does it make sense?

Great!

How is Gigi’s day linked with how our mind works?

Our mind works in the same way. We have a series of thoughts that, repeated over and over again, become patterns. Those patterns are, what NLP calls, our Beliefs. The power of those patterns, or beliefs is that they affect the pattern feelings.

What does it mean? You know, you are thinking every moment, even if you are not aware of it. Your blood pressure, your heartbeat, your digestion is all controlled by thoughts. The only matter is that you are not aware of it. So think about it closely. If a thought has the capability to control what makes us alive on this planet…. What can the impact of a thought be in our life?

On the next post we are going to dig down into the rabbit hole of our patterns and since then…

Enjoy Your Life!!!

Passion and Dream

dreams“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” 
Walt Disney 

Hi,

I wish I am finding you well and happy!

Today I feel like sharing with you a little story. I found inspiring lines on internet, while researching for my coaching program          Live Your Purpose, Live Your Life.

CLICK HERE TO KNOW MORE

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE AUDIO

This story is about dreams, determination, self-belief and passion. The pearl closed in the shell of the following words is invaluable and I invite you to deeply reflect about how this story relates to your own life.

 

“The first day of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn’t already know. I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned around to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me with a smile that lit up her entire being. She said, “Hi handsome. My name is Rose. I’m eighty-seven years old. Can I give you a hug?” I laughed and enthusiastically responded, “Of course you may!” and she gave me a giant squeeze.

“Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?” I asked. She jokingly replied, “I’m here to meet a rich husband, get married, have a couple of kids..” “No seriously,” I asked. I was curious what may have motivated her to be taking on this challenge at her age. “I always dreamed of having a college education and now I’m getting one!” she told me.

After class we walked to the student union building and shared a chocolate milkshake. We became instant friends. Every day for the next three months we would leave class together and talk non-stop I was always mesmerized listening to this “time machine” as she shared her wisdom and experience with me. Over the course of the year, Rose became a campus icon and she easily made friends wherever she went. She loved to dress up and she revealed in the attention bestowed upon her from the other students. She was living it up.

At the end of the semester we invited Rose to speak at our football banquet. I’ll never forget what she taught us. She was introduced and stepped up to the podium. As she began to deliver her prepared speech, she dropped her three by five cards on the floor. Frustrated and a little embarrassed she leaned into the microphone and simply said, “I’m sorry I’m so jittery. I gave up beer for Lent and this whiskey is killing me! I’ll never get my speech back in order so let me just tell you what I know.”

As we laughed she cleared her throat and began, “We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we stop playing. There are only four secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success. You have to laugh and find humour every day. You’ve got to have a dream. When you lose your dreams, you die. We have so many people walking around who are dead and don’t even know it! There is a huge difference between growing older and growing up. If you are nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don’t do one productive thing, you will turn twenty years old. If I am eighty-seven years old and stay in bed for a year and never do anything I will turn eighty-eight. Anybody can grow older. That doesn’t take any talent or ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding the opportunity in change. Have no regrets. The elderly usually don’t have regrets for what we did, but rather for things we did not do. The only people who fear death are those with regrets.”

She concluded her speech by courageously singing “The Rose.” She challenged each of us to study the lyrics and live them out in our daily lives. At the year’s end Rose finished the college degree she had begun all those years ago. One week after graduation Rose died peacefully in her sleep. Over two thousand college students attended her funeral in tribute to the wonderful woman who taught by example that it’s never too late to be all you can possibly be.

How many dreams did you give up because you became too “old” to pursue them?

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

Your Higher Self, Your Shining Self 2

shining self “A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.”                              James Allen 

Hi!

During the week a lot of positive comments about the post Your Higher Self, Your Shining Self. For this reason and for enthusiasm elicited I decided, today, to expand on the topic “The Higher Self”.

Today I want to share with You some quotation that made a big impact in my understanding about the Higher Self.

“We are spiritual being having a human experience.”

 “A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.”                              James Allen

“Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold, happiness dwells in the soul.”                                                                 Democritus 

“You don’t have a soul.  You are a Soul.  You have a body.”  ~C.S. Lewis

“Nowhere can man find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul.”                                                             ~Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

 “You are a beautiful soul hidden by the trench coat of the ego.”   ~Mike Dolan

 What are these quotes telling You? What the most important people who shaped the history of Humanity were trying to tell us?

Listen to Your own soul for the answer.

Well… ok.. Now You know Who is Your Shining Self and You might ask Yourself:

Why it is so important to reconnect with My soul.?Why cannot I not to connect with my soul?

The answer?…

This is the reason why we are hereThis is the reason why we are having this experience. Reconnect with our Shining Self and remember our mission, our purpose.

Without reconnecting with your soul, you won’t be able to access your purpose.

Your purpose is the message that Your soul carries within and is the message you are called to deliver in your human experience.

Connecting with Your Shining Self you will experience the purposeful life of joy, abundance and love you deserve. Connecting with your soul you will find the guidance you’ll need to find for the next step. Or to overcome challenges when things get tough.

Yes, because Life, sometimes, can be tough. Life, sometimes, can prove us in ways we would never imagine.

And let me tell you. I had a very “interesting” year with a lot of challenges that manifested in my life. And my question was.

How can I find the time to develop my spiritual practice in the midst of these troubles?

I have so many things I have to care about!! And there it came the answer. For me was “If you don’t do it will get worst!”. Very smartly I decided to ignore the answer. Like it was wishing me bad luck!! goof!!and You know what? Things got worst!

So my next question was..

How Can things get better now for me?

And the answer was: “Find the time to develop a spiritual practice!!”

Funny isn’t it? So this time I decided to listen to this voice.

And I’ve been pondering….

What is a spiritual practice?

Is it Yoga? Is it meditation? Is it prayer? Is it service?

What is a spiritual practice?…. I didn’t know!

And here is what I’ve understood now.. And you might want to take a note.

A spiritual practice is everything, that enhance your spirit, is everything that makes you happy, is everything that makes other people happy unconditionally. Everything can be a spiritual practice.

Eating, driving, making love, dancing, singing, volunteering, serving…..

Everything that is done with the intention of serving the highest good with joy and integrity.

This is my definition of spiritual practice.

Everything that serves the highest good with joy and integrity.

What did I gain from this?

Unfortunately any superpower or any x-ray view… although it sounded cool!!

I gained, instead, the strengths of facing the challenges that life was presenting to me , I gained the understanding of what really makes me happy and how can I make other people happy. I gained the wisdom that is bringing me to value every minute of my life. and make it meaningful.

I’m not saying I’m there. There is a long way to run. But I know that I’m on the right way. And I have strengths and the energy to run this colourful path.

This is what You can gain.

Your Turn

 

If You feel like you are trapped in the net of your problems, try to take a time out, to sit and enjoy yourself, to do something good for you and others. You’ll be amazed by the shift that this will make in your life.

Take NOW!! the time to connect with Your Shining Self!!

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

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.

Expectations can destroy or enrich your Life.

tc-5_expectation“When someone sees the same people every day, as had happened with him at the seminary, they wind up becoming a part of that person’s life. And then they want the person to change. If someone isn’t what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.” Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist   

Etymology:

expectation (n.) 1530s, from M.Fr. expectation(14c.) or directly from L. expectationem/exspectationem (nom. expectatio/exspectatio) “anticipation, an awaiting,” noun of action from pp. stem ofexpectare/exspectare(see expect). Related: Expectations.

 

Definition:

  • Anticipation of something happening: a confident belief or strong hope that a particular event will happen;
  • Notion of something: a mental image of something expected, often compared to its reality.
  • Expected standard: a standard of conduct or performance expected by or of somebody.
  • Prospects for future: somebody’s likely prospects of wealth or success in the future, especially of inheriting money under somebody’s will.”

What are really our expectations and what is the power they ultimately have upon our life?

When talking about expectations, suddenly, a story comes up to my mind. The story tells about a little child. It was the morning of an old and snowy Christmas day. The little child, woke up, rushing, almost flying downstairs, in the  where, under the green and decorated Christmas tree, 3 packs, of different dimension, colours and shape where standing, like little soldiers waiting for their captain. With a sparkling glow in his eyes, the child started unpacking all the presents, expecting to find, in one of them the Transformer he asked in the letter to Santa Claus. The first one was a c.d. player, the second a little flute and the third a huge Transformer. Suddenly the little child realised that what he was holding was not the one he was expecting, but it was slightly different. With tears in the eyes, screaming and kicking the other presents, the little child went back into the room, crying for hours.

What is this story telling you? 

So often, in Life, we are that little child. We have great expectations on people, events, circumstances. We put expectations in everything that surround us. And we hold on so tightly to those expectations that, if not fulfilled, a sense of anger and frustration take over ourselves. And as the little child, we begin to despise all the other presents that enrich our life every single breath.

While focusing on what we expect to receive, we often don’t notice and delete what we have and what is beautiful around us. Like the kid of the story, who was unhappy even tough he received a lot of different presents.

People, events, circumstances… Everything is like a present. A present wrapped in the beautiful paper of Life. Very often we pretend that the content of the present is exactly what we want, is exactly what have dreamed of. Too often we forget that Life is like a caring person. A person that knows our wants, but he better knows our needs. And before serving us with what we want, he serve us with what we really need now, in order to make the best of we will have in the future.

How many times, wrapping the gifts unfolded in the paper of experience we didn’t find what we expected to find? How many times have we been blaming our givers for that? And how many times we turned out thanking our givers because we understood at a later time the value of that gift?

The faces of the coin of Expectations

Expectations are like a coin. A coin with 2 different, opposite faces. Expectations can destroy or save your life.  Expectations can be your best friend, or your worst enemy.

Expectations can be the fuel or the break at the same time. It is up to you how you choose to use this amazing tool we have to our disposal.

Use Your expectations as being your map, but not the destination of your journey. Let them give you a sense of direction and the boost to maintain that direction. Don’t let them become Your destination. and be open to change of directions and sideways. Otherwise You’ll be stuck following a map that won’t lead you anywhere.

Your Turn

This week live with expectancy. Remind yourself, no matter what you will experience, that everything is coming for your Highest good. That everything is made for you. Don’t judge it as positive or negative. Just observe it and see the gift wrapped in this experience.

Choose an experience that you want and every night, before going to sleep, Ask Yourself.

  1.  What is the gift in this for me?
  2. What is wrapped in this experience for me?
  3. What can I learn from this experience?

Just stay with the experience and observe it.
