A Gift from the Universe

Hello, I hope I’m finding you well and happy!!

Tonight post is very brief and straight forward.

I’d Love to share with you the amazing gift that the universe prepared for me tonight.

Today around 14.00 I received a call. It was Fabio, the manager of Amico Bio. Unfortunately for him, he told me  he felt very sick and he couldn’t work at the restaurant for the night.

Fortunately now is better and tomorrow will be ready to lead the bridles of my last shift.

Well.. I have always been a prima donna and I love to have the light of the attention on top of me. This is the reason why I work best when I can act on the stage of the floor in the way I want.

So, Fabio’s sickness gave me the opportunity to shine and step into my best resources for tonight!

The night has been great, 78 people Happy, great teamwork with the other waitresses, lot of tips and a lot of laughs! I’m really proud of how I directed the orchestra tonight.

And for this, I have to thank Fabio and all the teachings he shared with me.

I feel to acknowledge one in particular: “A waiter work with his head, not with the feet.”

And this is what I have done tonight. And a lesson I want to remember for my life ahead in other areas of my life!

I’m so grateful today for the synchronistic opportunity to shine on the stage of Amico Bio, and for the teachings that he always shared with me, day after day. Pushing me forward in a process of growth.

And the question of the day is:

What are you grateful for today?

I invite you to share your thoughts with me, allowing this post to vibrate at the energy of gratitude!

Much love to You,

May We always shine

The Power of Action

Hello Hello! Back again ready to write and rock!!

It has been another amazing day for me today. Full of meaning, lessons and joy. A day that flown on the vibrational waves of happiness. A day where I did all I wanted to do and how I wanted to do. Starting from the morning shift at Amico Bio, the peaceful meditation in the churchyard, the empowering session with Ben, the music session with Jonas and the wonderful dinner that my body enjoyed so much. I am really grateful for all the amazingness that I’m attracting in my life!!

So why am I feeling this way? Why, in the last 2 days, I attracted more potential clients than the last 3 months? Why everything seems to flow effortlessly?

The answer? 2 weeks ago I made a decision. A decision that was going to shape my life forever. A decision which I’m committed to honour. I decided that I wanted to be in control of my life, my time and my finances 100%. I decided that, from that moment on, I’ll just work for myself. Creating my own business, my own opportunities and not having to rely to somebody else. I decided that I’ll just follow my passions and align with my purpose.

It took me a while to realise it, even if I coach people to shine their light and create the life they want, I wasn’t ready yet to do it. I was driven by my subconscious fears of not being good enough, fear of failure, fear o fsuccede and others that I’m processing now. Actually it was 5 o’clock in the morning and I was on a sugar high after one of my night binge, listening to the audiobook “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”.  In the moment I decided that I wanted money to work for me, and that I would never work for money again.

And the morning came. The sun, was shining high on a clear blue sky. I took my bicycle, heading towards Amico Bio for my morning shift. Thinking about how much time I was spending at the restaurant, the money I was earning and how far I was from my purpose. I had almost completely neglected my social life, trying to keep up with the Coaching, my personal development and the working hours at the restaurant.

So I took the courage to quit my job at the restaurant. Even if I still love it and the people I work with, I decided to step into the uncertainty and embracing my fears. I realised and accepted this was not for me any more. This was belonging to another period of my life. And it was time to let go.

I have to tell  you that I was scared about how I’m going to have enough money to pay my bills, the food and my general expenses. But now, that I’m just 2 days from the last shift, a sense of drive and a greater motivation is running through me. A motivation coming from the compelling idea for the future ahead and for doing what I am here for.

I’m grateful to all that happened in the past, all the people, the experiences  the learnings. Even if they weren’t coming always from a gentle and juicy source. But now I see the value of all of them. They shaped who I am now… And to be sincere… I love it! I really love myself in the way I am!

This is a new beginning for me. New learnings and growth.

But when did all started?

From a decision, a decision to be the owner of my own life.

But a decision is not a step, is just half a step. How Many times I’ve made a decision that just remained so…

The real turning point was embracing and dancing with my fears and take action. The action of stepping into the uncertainty quitting my job.

To recap.

DECISION=1/2 STEP                              ACTION=1 STEP

DECISION+ACTION=1 and 1/2 STEP.

Sometimes I forget how far I can go just with a small, little step, not thinking about what that action can bring in my life.

I’m now fully committed to take action for the future I want!

I wish you all a future of greatness and a present of mindful action.

May life lead you where you want to go.

The power of saying “NO”.

Hello dear! It Is fantastic to connect with you again.

I hope your day has been amazing such has been mine!

And here we are again, talking tonight about The Power of saying NO.

Reflecting about what was the lesson for me today, few images came into my mind.  2 different moment, with 2 different people, but the same underlying pattern. Both of them were complaining about how much of their life they are spending inside the work environment, their lack of social life and the time to improve it.  I can understand how frustrating this situation can be. The feeling of control gets easily replaced by a feeling of overwhelm and guilt.

Getting to the root of why they are allowing so many things to put off other important areas of their life, the main pattern I have uncovered was, for both of them, the great difficulty to say NO to other people.

And that led me to think about why it is so difficult to say this little word, but soaked with huge emotions attached to it.

Generally people that never say no, are so driven to help out other people, and please others wants and needs, that  they lose the focus on the helper. They care  more about others than they care of themselves. So it seems that the root cause is really remarkable and highly positive. But what is this behaviour leading to? Generally to an increasing sense of frustration for not having accomplished our daily, small or big goals.

So what is the root cause of this behaviour?

Well It comes generally from our childhood and from the set of core values we hold about our life. Some people can have as core value “RECOGNITION”, so they feel good and important just when they are recognised from an external source and they are unconsciously doing everything to meet this value. Other times they can hold the belief that “Is not safe to speak up”, or they might fear of being rejected if they don’t please others (one of our most common and diffused fears). And these fears, limiting beliefs and values might create a sense of guilt, and a drive to overdoing for others. Depleting ourself from the energy that allow us to do what we really want.

Just think about it for a moment.

You might know somebody, maybe very close to you, that have the same behaviour.

I firmly believe that I’m the creator of my own reality, and that episode led me to think about the question. ” What is in me now that is creating this events?”

So I recognise that a lot of times I have the same pattern and behaviour. In particular regarding pleasing others needs and wants for the fear of being rejected from them. And Is in these times that I remind myself a simple thinking process that really helped me develop in this area.

I’ve been introduced to the concept that there is no thing such as NO. There is always Yes. The matter is to see where the Yes is directed to. When we say Yes to others, we are, maybe, saying No to ourself. And when we say No to others we are, maybe, saying Yes to ourself.

When was the last time you said Yes to Yourself?

How did you feel?

I believe that there always must be a balance between the Yes we are saying to ourself and the Yes said to others.

And I’m committed to keep this balance and treat myself like I would treat the person I care most on the Earth. I’ve experienced that just when I feel happy and full of energy I have more impact in other people’s life, and I can be more helpful for them.

The power of Synchronicity

Hello dear followers! I hope I’m finding you well and happy today!

In today’s post I’ll talk about what happened to me in the last couple of days.

Have you ever had the feeling of being in the right place at the right time? Have you ever met a person that it seemed like you were suppose to meet? Did ever, a complete stranger stepped into your life making a massive change or creating new opportunities you never thought possible for you?

Well the answer to these questions for me is YES! And when I’m in a state of flow and happiness like I feel now, these events multiply exponencially.

I’m going to share now the amazing events that happened to me starting from yesterday afternoon.

The first moment has been yesterday in the late afternoon. I had just finished my Monday shopping of succulent organic vegetables at the tiny farmer shop opposite New Cross Gate. After a warm goodbye with the Hungarian farmer, that now has become a dear friend of mine, I started my cycle ride towards Sandrock Road, where I live. You have to know that when I cycle I love to infiltrate between cars and buses. But this time something unexpected happened. The gap between the car and bus was too small for me, the bike and the bag I was carrying the veggies with. I couldn’t control the bike in that moment and the bus hit the bag, creating a hole that left the space for a red tomato to leave his mates: direction pavement. With the bag broken and the other veggies that were going to follow the tomato I didn’t know how to bring them home. And immediately, a black man called Sam, with a bright and peaceful smile on his face (like he was passing there for that reason), gave me one of his plastic bag, wishing me a great day. I am so grateful for what happened and it makes me smile. I know that everywhere I go there is always somebody ready to help me with any challenge I might face.

The next episodes happened today, while I was approaching the colleges around my area for offering my services as a Youth Coach. All the receptionists and the people I met gave me great support with a friendly attitude I never expected from busy college receptionists.

Then my friend Steve Beckles-ebusua, of   http://www.seriousintentions.co.uk/ who is an inspiring motivational speaker, coach and mentor accepted my request to support him in one of his workshops.

After, I had the pleasure to meet two fantastic guys that came for dinner at Amico Bio. One business consultant and the other, a gorgeous woman working as osteopath, and Yoga teacher, which I had the honour to connect with immediately, and he asked me for my business card.

And dulcis in fundo I received a text from the manager of Powerhouse, a charity for women with unique learning abilities, where I delivered a workshop in September, inviting me to a long term program with them. Finger crossed the council will accept the request to found the project. Thinking about what led me to Powerhouse are really sweet memories that are starting in the Tent City University of the camp of St. Paul one year ago, the 15-10-2011.

Sweet emotions are now rising and the memories are sliding in front my mind’s eyes.

I leave you guys with the feeling of Gratitude of all that synchronically happened, is happening and it will happen.

Because everything happen for a reason, and just you know your unique reason.

Much Love to you.

The power of Beliefs

Hello dears, I hope I’m finding you well and healthy today!

The topic of the day is the key discovery that me made decide to work as coach and the area of coaching that is most important for me.

Today I want to talk about beliefs.

Before we start I’d like to sharestory with you. The story about how I came across this life changing discovery that shaped my life forever.

It was a cold December night, almost 2 years ago. I couldn’t fall asleep that night. So I decided to watch videos on youtube and searching the web for something that could catch my focus. When, around 5 o’clock in the morning, my dear friend Anna Irene Controllo send me a video interview that kept me staring at the laptop for 1h without pauses. And that made me so excited that I kept walking around the house like a little mouse!

Yes, I’m telling the truth. What I have discovered from that interview changed my life and the way I now perceive it completely.

The speaker is a biologist called Bruce Lipton, Phd in cellular biology and best selling author with the book “Biology of beliefs”. In the interview (that you find attached at the end of the post and that, if you are an open minded person, receptive to new empowering ideas and concepts, I warmly invite you to watch) He talks about how, from studying the muscle cells, his research shifted toward the power of thoughts and beliefs, showing scientific profs on how beliefs and thoughts affect the body at a cellular level.  And that was for me the first step towards the understanding of this fascinating concept that is now the focus of my coaching practice.

So… from now, I’m going to share with you what I have discovered about the amazingness of our beliefs,  the different ways to raise awareness of the “hidden ones” and the most effective tools to change and repattern them.

It gives me a chance to put together and organise daily all my thoughts, the knowledge and the wisdom I’ve gathered in the last 2 years of research and experimentation. And also gives me opportunity to empower you with the tools that I found more effective and that really make a difference in our mind, body and consciousness, both on a conscious and subconscious level.

Because this is why I’m here for and this is part of what I feel being my mission. Empower people to shine their own light, while releasing limiting patterns for their personal evolution and the evolution of humanity.

For this aim I’ve created a new category called The Power of Beliefs, where I’ll put all my thoughts, the knowledge and wisdom gathered in the last 2 years of research.

As I promised you, this is the link of the interview with Bruce Lipton. I’ll post other videos and seminars from him and other teachers during the creation of this process.

Stay tuned for the next post entitled: What Beliefs Really Are.

I wish you Happiness and Joy.

Happiness!!

Hello You!! Yes I’m talking to you! Not the one behind!

Today, Sunday I allowed myself to sleep a bit more than the average 6 hours and I indulged till 13.00. Rolling myself like a vegetable skewer in my sleeping bag. I love to sleep inside it… It is so comfortable and warm.. It makes me feel protected.

After the awakening I started the day with a kundalini yoga practice and a peaceful meditation that set me up for the amazing day I was going to face!

I’m so happy my brother called me to book the flight for coming here on the 17th of November!!  And also my mum and my brother seems to have found the new house that is going to host them!!  I’m so grateful for everything that is happening in this moment of our life!

In this cold but sunny day, I decided to stay in the comfort of my room, assessing  my goals and vision for the future ahead, and the action steps for the present. It took me a couple of hours to set up my new goals and to review the previous one. I love to spend this time that is now becoming a constant routine. It helps me to keep the focus on what I do and assure the the actions I take are in alignment with who I really am and what I really want.

I’d really like to share with you 2 new goals I set up today for the months ahead!

First of all, I have the first gig, in front of at least 20 people, with my band! And I’m committing to practice scales daily to improve my voice and alternate the practice of instruments I’m learning to master, focusing on the basics and the technique.

The next is around my work as a coach and speaker.

I have 6 clients per week by the end of december!

And I have 14 speech a month by the 27 of February 2013, Ideally in schools, youth centres and charities.

I find this moment with myself so inspiring and it is a cold shower of self motivation for the days to come!

To be sincere I’m not sure about how I’ll find the clients and the public for my speeches, but I have a lot of ideas and I trust the help of the Universe!!

Because everything is possible, just if we want it badly enough and hardly enough!

I wish you all inspiring dreams and a sunny awakening!!
