We want to empower you to take steps towards your inner growth.
The most important step here is to acknowledge that you are your own GURU, and no-one else other than yourself will know what your path is, and how you will walk it.
As your inner Guru, you will have to learn how to listen to your own guidance; it might be a very simple process if you are already completely aware and aligned with your true self. However, for many of us this process is hard, and letting go of old patterns can be extremely confusing and overwhelming.
In this section, you will find various practices and insights of how to empower yourself during your inner journey – helping you to find your own way.
“You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul” – Swami Vivekananda
“I learned that every mortal will taste death.But only some will taste life”
The life we live is a gift but can we see it as such?
Yes we can, and yet at
times all we can see is pain.
That’s part of life, that’s actually part of its mystery and
its magic. It is through pain we grow and learn how to hold more love, more
light. Becoming better human beings; more compassionate, humbler of how little
we know. Learning to be appreciative of
the beautiful moments we have in this planet.
Looking at the bodies burning in the cremation grounds, in
the sacred land of Nepal, is definitely an experience that I will never forget
and with no doubt I wish to return to that place so many more times…
You might be thinking it’s such a morbid thing to do, but
actually somehow that gives me great hope in humanity.
We act as we are invincible, but we are so fragile. Our lives
can end at any moment and when I sit down and look at the fire consuming those
bodies that are becoming ash, going back into the cosmic soup .. that’s when I
truly value being alive in my own body.
My life can be told in so many different ways… I can choose
to tell you all about my pain and my suffering, all the heart breaks, all the childhood
trauma … and yes I do honour those moments that made me grow, that shaped me
into such person that I am today.
I can also choose to tell you about the times I lost myself
in that darkness and I wished for my own death … that I felt so alone and
abandoned that it felt as my own essence was broken into a million pieces…
But today I tell you this story…
Yes, I can say to you I have not yet meet a human being that
has not gone through this deep sense of being lost. We all have it. We make the
most to hide it from others and from ourselves especially.
So this is how I will make good use of my words to empower
myself and others. Like in the four agreements book, one of my favourites
reads. You can use the word to create your life, your own reality. By the way
you use this power, the power of the word, in the way and how you tell your
story to others… Every time you choose pain and guilt, every time you portray yourself
as a victim, you create more of that.
However, when you put yourself in a place of understanding,
love and compassion, that my friends is true empowerment.
So the words I’m using here are to set myself even freer, to
expand my soul. To look at death as the greatest gift, that makes me time after
time appreciate being alive even if there were moments in which I completely lost myself.
There is something, somehow, something within that keeps
coming back up and pointing the way, bringing back all the love a, all the
light , all the purity of my heart.
To wish for a better life, a better world, to create from a
It’s okay to choose the same lover 1000 times even if you
had your heart broken twice as much, it’s also okay to let them go and let God
bring you new love … As long as you keep believing, having faith, growing,
cherishing life, cherishing the treasures of your own heart. Every choice you make is fine, you can keep on
choosing anew everyday as long as you are choosing from a place of love, of truly
What does being alive means???
It is not just simply moving around in the body, doing things,
waking up, going to work, being on auto pilot.
No, that’s existing!
Being alive means courage!
What is courage?
Courage is acting from a place from the heart.
This might be a hard explanation, because if you heart is
closed … even if you are not coming from your thoughts you are in trouble … if
you heart is closed, all you feel and do is coming out of survival, out of defensiveness,
out of separation.
But when your heart is open nothing can hurt you, you come
from a place of love, acceptance, inclusiveness. And although it might be frightening
to make choices and be courageous and expose your heart to new hurts, what type
of life would you rather live?
A sterile safe life, on auto pilot?
Or a life that gives you light in itself?
How do you express yourself? Is it from a place where you
want to be seen doing what you “think” is right? Acting in a way in which the
people around you will approve your choices?
Or is it from a place from true authenticity?
From a place of fulfilment and expansion?
From a place of true connection…
And what is true connection anyways?
Very few humans have the opportunity to experience that.
Everyone is so cover up with all types of masks, pretending
acting in certain ways that is so rare when people truly connect showing al
their vulnerability to one another.
Who are you here to impress?
Is the people around yourself? Your family?
Or is it your soul, your own heart?
I tell you, living from this place is almost impossible, it
can be so volatile and you feel so exposed…
But that is living. That for me, in my own way of
experiencing this life, that is being alive!
Listening you own heart and your soul, instead of listening
to all the noise around you.
Keeping that strong knowing in your heart that all you have
to do is nurture this inner connection.
So while I sit, looking at the burning bodies in the
cremation ground, becoming ash. I tell myself: I will live and walk this path
my own way. I will make choices that make me feel truly alive even if they
absolutely sound insane to others, I will choose from my heart. Then I will let go and let God guide me and
show me the way.
With pure trust in that wisdom, the wisdom within, the wisdom of the universe.
Now I invite you to contemplate about your own life. To watch the end … To remember the gift of now. To cherish what is really important and to not waist any minute of your life living in fear because then you are already dead.
And because life is such an amazing adventure I will be taking some of my students/clients to Nepal so stay tuned or get in touch for more information.
“The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.” ― Jalaluddin Rumi, The Illuminated Rumi
I often wonder what keeps people together.
What is the damn bond … the magical invisible string that ties one to another?
I also used to think doing things in the same way was the issue keeping me from actually understanding more about love and emotional satisfaction.
But wait, since I have changed everything, even myself, I have done everything different … and tried and tested with all sorts of different situations.
Still I’m yet to experience, in a flash, what I know to be true love in my heart.
But those are even deeper topics for discussion.
Right now I’m just contemplating this question:
So what keeps the bond?
Is it something that can be controlled or is it totally random? Or even worse .. is it meant to be with the one person that is meant for you?
That’s rather unfair to everyone else … if you think there is only this one person who is a match to you …. Amongst 7 billion others …
You are then bound to find each other, and vague in search of this almost impossible quest … But isn’t this the biggest lie?
First of all let’s take a look at love .. and what love is .. I’m talking about true unconditional love; not falling in love with the things about the person .. but falling in love with the energy behind that identity… If so… Isn’t that energy within everyone?
Because if we are one, we are all the same energy being played over and over by different theatrical characters. But when you strip away identity, what is left is the immutable .. What is left is raw, never changing, wholesome energy. Its source. The universe itself.
So… If we are falling in love, the least important thing is the person, the personality … I was happy to hear from Esther Hicks in one of her talks “ The person is irrelevant when you are in love”. Maybe it’s because when love comes it takes you so abruptly and strongly that you better have someone to become the object of your loving, or for you to use it as an excuse to connect to the energy.
I have done that before … a few times now .. Loved so deeply and used the identity of certain people to increase my connection to source, to go right up all the way to heaven and bathe in the love for everything, for everyone ….
Aw, that feeling of aliveness never compares to anything. It is being in love with God personified in one identity where you can focus upon … and the devotion that comes with it … Indescribable .. devotion not to the person ..but to the energy… Burning anything inside your heart, making it so pure you become a child again in awe with every moment .. every minute.
However, back to my question… In the realm of physical, and togetherness; in the realm of flesh and bone … I’m yet to share this unstoppable force with someone that can surrender to it.
Or even to make love with one physical body and remain together .. bound by that string…
I’m not talking about sex here. Those are very different things. I’m talking about energy … about getting absolutely lost in each other and not even knowing where one begins and the other ends.. I’m talking about true connection, true love … And I’m yet concerned that maybe what I believe to be true might be just a myth of my own imagination. That this kind of connection is not possible, that humanity might not yet be ready for it.
Or maybe I am just so damned blessed and cursed, all at once for knowing this kind of thing exists, but this might be a secret to mankind; and if there are a few out there that might begin to grasp what I am really talking about … It would be nice to know they do exist.
Sacred sex, where love is the note guiding each one into the truth of each other… This is no joke, it is a ceremonial thing. That’s how man and woman should connect, falling in love with God inside each other’s eyes …. Falling in love with life itself, contained in each other’s body. A touch so soft that could melt away any pain, any fear..
And yet where is the glue? … That brings those 2 people together to be fearless to experience the only thing worth living for?
“Isn’t it time to turn your heart into a temple of fire?”_ Rumi
Tic tock, I look at the clock and guess what! I’m still alive. This has been my current trend of thought since watching the Sadhguru’s video explaining that death will come very naturally to everyone on this planet. Funny observation as too many of us humans spend their lives practicing being dead, stiff like corpses … lacking gratitude and awareness for the gift of being alive.
So what have you been doing? Are you cultivating this aliveness within yourself? Or are you choosing to march around closing your eyes to life.
I for one am having an overload of delightfulness, extreme curiosity for all the colors of life and everything it keeps bringing me. It is sometimes a challenge to tame my thirst for savouring everything and everyone all at once. I am afraid I might swallow the world and just explode into particles of desire. Or maybe, I’ll turn again into Kali , running around cutting demons’ heads off. In the hopes Shiva might come at my aid to control all this madness, all this energy. I’m running on kundalini , prana , life force and so is everyone on the planet – except I’m very aware of it, of life playing through my bones.
My heart is burning, it’s on fire, looking for more than it has ever had. Anything or anyone that does not share the likes of this intensity is rapidly torn apart from it. The fire is too great, I can barely control my focus. Everything is wanted, needed invited… I want it all and I want it now, chaos, chaos, chaos …. Delightful madness of chaos and sincere abrupt explosions of emotions.
The dancing of life has become rather fast… The drumming is so loud my body follows it without questioning. My mind can barely keep up with the strength of my thirst. Poor mind, trying to help .. but nothing is to be done when the fire has taken over…
What to do? If not observing this circus… Looking for moments of divine clarity and jumping into them. Following the impulses of life as they command my temple of Self. Aware of the dance, but way too busy dancing to pretend I can control my moves.
Run through me fire of consciousness, take me with you, I’m tired of fighting the rhythm…
Because I know this is momentary. Because I know just as this fire burns strong …I know soon, there will be only stillness.
In the center of the tornado… there, I will stand still in my own Self-awareness. The weather is part of me, but not all of who I am.
So we dance in the fire. For now.
Flaming heart of aliveness, I salute you with all my love.
“Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames” _ Rumi
“We humans are made up of stardust. Our eyes reflect starlight. And when we crack it escapes and shines through.” ― Vanshika Dhyani
For those who have had the infinite pleasure to meet their twin flame or twin soul , whichever the term it might be. For those who had to brave into the waters of unconditional love and learn about the non-time-space ways you are connected to another being; for those who truly experienced seeing their other half in another body; or even if you remember different lifetimes with your twin and have had the pleasure of re-encountering them in this lifetime as an incarnated being.
I have something to say to you.
Well, dear one, you were in for a ride huh! Did you know it was possible to love like this and to lose yourself into another being? Did you know how hard it was to be apart from this other person whom you know deep down to the core?
Well, it’s no secret many are experiencing this phenomena and many are having to go through the stages of a twin flame relationship, including the most annoying one “the runner/chaser”, and the most agonizing one the “separation”. It’s rare to find Twins that managed to master their mission on Earth and stayed together in harmony, or managed to reunite after both realized who they were for each other.
In most cases there is an imbalance and one twin the “most spiritually evolved” one will be more aware of their mission and their connection, while the “less spiritually evolved” will run away and bla bla bla … (all that spiritual presumption of one person being further, or more realized then the other, which again diverts away from the actual energy of Love)
Well if you ask me here goes my own experience and perspective on this whole thing..
The Twin Flame experience has one main objective. To bring you back into Love, love with yourself , to love yourself unconditionally and this other person too. To accept yourself fully and completely , to really see beyond this world and this body. To acknowledge who you are and what you are made of, to transcend separation, to understand we are ONE, and ultimately to be able to see God in everything.
So once you are in this place where you finally know Love you can love freely, at least you can say you know what that means. Because you can love your twin with no conditions, you can now love yourself in the same way. You can then start taking the same approach into all areas of your life with new eyes, awakened eyes, eyes full of awareness.
And the most amazing thing is once you know who you really are, how complete and full and wonderful you truly are and that your happiness does not depend on anyone else, that nothing external can complete you, once you learn you are the creator and responsible for all your experiences, well, my friend, then you know that even though your twin is the exact same vibration and has the same soul signature as you, even then, you can see beyond that story.
If you survive the separation period and you learn all the lessons it had to teach you, that you are your own flame, that no one in the world will be able to give you this love that is already within you. Love is meant to be emanated from you to the world.
So why do I call this the twin Flame black hole ?
Well around a year ago a healer friend of mine referred to the twin flame experience as a black hole.. I had no idea why he was saying that. In fact, I even though it was a little insensitive, however, that person was a kind wise being and so I remembered those words…
The Twin flame Black Hole
For sure it will suck you in with full power, because the story of finding and meeting your one true love is way too juicy. It will change all your thoughts about yourself and love and you will disappear into nothingness . After entering this black hole you will eventually emerge as a whole new person, a new thing… You won’t recognize who you are anymore and it won’t even matter.
Because you know you are Love .
The most amazing thing is that’s being or not being with your twin won’t hurt you anymore because you are already complete. You will be able to continue loving your twin dearly and unconditionally , but you won’t believe in that story of neediness , or the fact there is only one true love in the whole universe that is yours, and that if you don’t find that person you won’t be happy. That’s just impossible.
You will be able to love anyone you wish too. Because you will have learnt, after emerging from the black whole, beyond a certain point we are all the same energy. You will trust your heart and be able to open it to the lightness of being free to love anyone you wish to love.
And most importantly you will listen to the truth in love, a love that is free to be with no judgment, light and warming like the sunshine on a winter day. A love with no fear, not even when it makes fear arise to be looked at. No fear to feel fear, it’s the gift true love gives you.
And if it does not serve you, you will be able to let go of it, just as you picked it up. Being able to continue to hold infinite amounts of love for any person you truly love – one or one hundred, love is infinite.
The funny thing is, now that you know who you are it is very enjoyable because there are no ways you can fool yourself, because you know anything making you uncomfortable, tense, is not in the other person, but is within yourself. So you can go through your patterns and let go of them, you might not even have the need to engage with them, you know how blessed you are for being able to share any of this experience with another being.
And of course you will know there is no need to be rejected because when you fully love and accept yourself, any type of rejection can only be done to oneself, not to other. Because when you emerge a new after the black hole nothing will have a hold on you; and you will be able to find love in anyone and anything.
The black hole is absolutely beautiful and equally terrifying, as for those who entered there is no return.
“Black holes are the seductive dragons of the universe, outwardly quiescent yet violent at the heart, uncanny, hostile, primeval, emitting a negative radiance that draws all toward them, gobbling up all who come too close. Once having entered the tumultuous orbit of a black hole, nothing can break away from its passionate but fatal embrace. Though cons of teasing play may be granted the doomed, ultimately play turns to prey and all are sucked haplessly―brilliantly aglow, true, but oh so briefly so―into the fire-breathing maw of oblivion. Black holes, which have no memory, are said to contain the earliest memories of the universe, and the most recent, too, while at the same time obliterating all memory by obliterating all its embodiments. Such paradoxes characterize these strange galactic monsters, for whom creation is destruction, death life, chaos order. And darkness illumination: for, as dragons are also called worms, so black hole are known as wormholes, offering a mystical and intimate pathway to the farthest reaches of the cosmos, thus bring light as they consume it.”
― Robert Coover, A Child Again
Be brave, and dive into the mystery of YourSelf so you can finally learn how to truly love while being in this body.
A friend once brought up a question, an observation, about the fact that only a full self-realized being could truly love. That normal people are often not capable of truly loving. This observation stayed with me for a while. I had to go deep within myself to fully understand my own perspective about this.
And to be happy to fully disagree.
See, love is the very thing that permeates the all. Therefore, by definition we are that. We are this energy, and this divine essence is what brings us into being, so every single one of us, deep down, in our essence, knows what love truly is.
We might be here in this body afraid of finding out who we truly are because that threatens our independence, we are afraid of our own light. However, love is present in every choice we make, even the ones that appear to be led by negative frequencies such as fear.
If we dig deep in every action we will see love is the motive, because one might be coming from the illusion of not having love, not feeling the flow of love, or because one is open, willing to share this energy with the world in every single aspect of their lives.
The point is, every day there are non-realized beings acting from that place. Because miracles are everywhere, that’s a fact. In the way you smile, in a deep breath you take, in a chance you take to change your life, in a simple act of kindness, in the love of a parent, in a caring friend, anything that resonates with that frequency is that frequency even when we don’t realize the power of it, even when we fail to see it daily… We are all acting in sync with God, aware or not, we are part of the making. And here we are playing a part in the illusion. It is very hard to see from one single perspective that true love is reflected in every single particle of life.
Perhaps a fully realized being would be able to see that everywhere. But perhaps a fully realized being would also know how little gestures, little miracles, powered by true crystalline love are present in every day of our lives, is the very fuel that keeps this reality into motion.
I might be totally out of my head but I’m pretty sure that when God looks at us all it sees is love. Even when we are in anger, in pain or fear. Why do we insist in making such distinction between ourselves when are all the same force? Why do we chase so much to be something we already are? Just so we can be once again one with love, one with God. But if there is no such separation, just the perception of it, we can begin to have the awareness about our truth and be able to observe true love in every single being.
This is what I choose to believe in. This is what I choose as my truth.
To be able to see that through any suffering, to be able to see love in all circumstances, to believe in the power of love and to surrender to it daily.
Nature is perfection. God, as the great creator of all things has created the human experience. We belong to many worlds at once and in this experience we can discover and remember who we are in our totality. By the act of finding Truth in the Love that moves all things in nature and in the different worlds we are linked to.
Mind, ego, personality are things that enable this experience. They are precious gifts given by the Great Creator, just so we can have the joy of finding our Truth in the Love that we are. Instead of negating any part of our totality, inviting one to shower any aspects of separation with love might lead you to see how beautiful your mind, given to you by God, is. Because it allows you to create the dream you are living right now and to experience this life in the way it is. Your ego too has an important service to you, without it you would be still merged into the cosmic soup, but when you shower the ego with the pure love of light, given to you by God to find out how perfect you are, the ego loses its negative aspects and becomes another important and special note in the perfect symphony of creation that is you.
It’s your personality that carries the story of you, and the traits you will find within yourself so you can discover the joy of being way more than your identity. Then you can start remembering your other identities. The collective of identities you have been in the past lives you lived that make part of your cosmic story. Then you can find out the collective of souls you make part of beyond those identities.. You can discover different aspects of yourself.. in different dimensions, in different worlds, you can become more of your own totality and discover more of your truth.
You may also go beyond all that and discover your Nothingness and your Real Truth.
So from that place although thoughts, feelings, forms, time, space or identity might not exist..
From that place, you will see the perfection of the All of Creation.
There will be no need to fight the ego or condemn the mind.
So why not practice that Now?
Be the love you are in all aspects of your life if you are going to spend time debating about those things or putting your energy into a spiritual path.
Practice the act of being Truth, and simply Be Love.
No more rejection, no more. Because all is perfect. Because all is well.
In recent days/weeks/months many of us have been experiencing tremendous transformation, growth and expansion in so many ways and on many levels. Generally, this is what the last couple of years and the next few are all about, yet from a linear time perspective, it feels like the energies have been building up momentum for something greater, something we are all participants of, and it involves every single atom in the world. It’s not one single moment in time as we know it that changes everything, it’s a series of moments during which we establish strong foundations for the “new earth” to be experienced in much more tangible ways than it has been until now. All roads lead to that, even though at times it might seem like the opposite. The heart sees with great clarity, where the wounded mind can’t reach.
But for now, let’s stick to our current energy dyanmics. On the 20th of June, we have a full moon in Sagittarius and the Summer Solstice altogether. This great astrological combination, synergised with our own individual gateways holds a huge potential for transformation and we are being presented with an opportunity make revolutionary quantum leaps individually and collectively.
Dates are not important. This cosmic orchestration does not work in the time structure we have created. We use dates as reference points, but what’s truly important as we move through all these cosmic events is our state of being, where we are in our journey, the receptiveness and openness we have, the choices we make and our willingness and dedication to stepping deeper and deeper into our pure authentic nature as humans. One way or another, every single atom is being affected in the most beneficial ways by the incoming releases of higher vibrational energy. No stone is being left unturned. The energy of the Solstice and the full moon will continue to be present in our fields in the weeks to come, supporting us in releasing that which no longer serves us from the deepest levels.
This will be experienced uniquely by each individual, but the main theme is “rewriting” all our past experiences, wipe the slate clean and all the residual we might hold from the past, while simultaneously creating the space within and without for experiences that encompass more of who are truly are and where we are in our journey. Transmutation.
We can’t create that if our current state and energy fields are being hindered by old density/residual. Density sneaked into many areas of our lives, as we allowed it. The old matrix our world has been built upon for the last thousands of years has gotten more complex in time, but now a new one has been and is being put in place. We have been revealed and constantly reminded of the ways we can outgrow the old matrix/the illusion throughout time. Yet, we are being presented with choices. There always was and there always is one. The gate is wide open, yet the choice is ours to either enter or play a little more in the old. The way “out” of the old is through. Facing fear/s. Unifying all we are as humans and growing and maturing through it. Fear was/is a great teacher, yet the answer and key to it all truly is love.
There are a multitude of facets of ascension and during this time, our focus will turn towards the ones where growth is most required. In our outer reality, some might find themselves more focused on their purpose, “work,”shifting directions, expanding into that area, while others will focus more on the experience of relationships, creating partnerships that benefit all one way or another, others will choose to cocoon, to spend more time in their personal “cave”with the mere purpose of connecting deeper within themselves, with their core and bringing forth that essence into their beingness in the now. These outer reflections/creations are always being created in such a wondrous way that benefits us and our growth best.
All facets are beautifully inter-connected, yet at given times more of our focus might be given to a specific facet that requires expansion.
The full moon in Saggitarius will give us the boost we need to move forward into the next phases of our evolution with joy, excitement and a childlike playfulness. Often times, we get too serious and pragmatic in our journeys that we forget we are here to enjoy every single moment of our waking times. We are here to explore the many enriching experiences life on Earth provides us with and play, play in creation. If we find ourselves seemingly disconnected from the frequency and state of joy, we have to stop, take a step back and connect to the inner child aspect that is in all of us. Often times, that is perceived as running away from responsibility and to escape their reality. That is not the intended purpose. To connect with our inner child in a mature way, simply means adopting a playful attitude towards our experiences and bringing forth that innocent pure love, joy, passion, and playfulness in whatever we do and wherever we are. Reflect on this question: what is the meaning of living life on Earth if we don’t make the best of every present moment ?
Yes, there are dark nights of the soul, we may have many, but even the darkest night of the soul is temporary. In those moments, it is even more imperative to allow our inner child to come out and engulf us in pure joy. Surrender.
Seriousness and playfulness have to hold hands and dance together as one for us to be able to live life on Earth at its full capacity. The same goes for all other polarities, whichever form they take in our experience.
That is the message today. Unification. Soulful creation. You can do it. You can be it, if only you dare to.
This Guided Meditation will lead you through your subconscious to a place where you are comfortable in social situations and feeling more confident in yourself. By connecting with the subconscious in this way you are more likely to feel that confidence in your daily life.
You can then take it a step further with the Freedom Release Technique and clear limiting subconscious beliefs that could be sabotaging your efforts to build confidence and be more relaxed in social situations.
We don’t think much about these two concepts, but the knowledge and the understanding of them could be the secret ingredients to living life in grace’s embrace and they can provide us with that strong foundation of balance and harmony that cannot be easily shaken by neither outer or inner challenges, which we all experience at some point.
I noticed that many of us confuse these two “concepts.” Perhaps “concepts” is not the best word to use, they are much more than that, they are ways of living. Once implemented, they can shift our reality greatly, but first let us describe these ways of living and the difference between, so they will be better comprehended.
As humans, we have been programmed to react to the outer world. It is that primal instinct, animalistic reaction to our environment, to situations, to people. This reaction to outer circumstances is mental, emotional and even physical. In physiology, it is called the ” fight-or-flight response,” but I humbly beg to change the name slightly and say it’s more like the “fight-or-flight reaction,” because indeed it is a physiological reaction, not a response. It triggers neural reactions, secretions of various hormones and a lot more processes are beginning to take place in our body. Reacting can lead to anxiety, depression, chronic stress, weakened immune system and increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
Our body feels like it is being attacked, so it created a very intelligent defense mechanism, that has evolved as necessary and needed throughout centuries of distorted social structures. Today, we are far more advanced than we were even five years ago. We may recognize some primitive behaviour in some, but generally we have evolved and are evolving past those distorted social structures. Defense mechanisms have to evolve too, the walls have to be torn down and as with everything else, this evolution begins through our inner transformation.
On a mental level, our mind reacts to outer circumstances either with dualistic/”positive” or “negative” thoughts, leading to emotional reactions sometimes to those thoughts and perceptions, other times to experiences and situations.
Emotionally, we react with fear, joy, disappointment, happiness, worry, irritation and so on.
Reaction served us for a long time. Now as we have evolved as a society, the mechanisms that imply reaction can be restructured, transformed into new ones that support harmonious states of being and inevitably a greater peace is to be established in our society. What’s so important to know and understand is that reaction is not natural. It is something we had to implement in our states of being to “survive,” to be able to adapt to a dualistic Earth, where fear has been prevalent for eons.
You may find a better understanding in seeing it as a software that was necessary for the computer to function, but a new one, an updated version of the software has been created and the old one needs to be replaced.
The bridge from reaction to response is being built through awareness.
Responding to inner or outer experiences implies cultivating a neutral way of seeing what is and becoming masterful and mindful enough to be able choose our response. It is not to be confused with being robotic, emotions always need to be acknowledged and felt, thoughts always need to flow. The ability to respond blossoms from self-observation. Emotions will be felt, thoughts will be thought, experiences will still be experienced, but they will not get reactions from us, we will choose our response consciously. This choice is what makes the difference between response and reaction.
We either respond with love, or react with fear. Is there one way that is better than the other? No. They are simply chosen experiences to be had. At the end of the day, we have to feel into and reflect on which way works best for us and implement it in our every moment. Common sense alone will definitely guide us towards responding with love, instead of reacting with fear, of course, but actually truly implementing it in our daily lives is the real “challenge.” This process requires dedication and persistence. It is never an overnight process and it’s very multi-faceted, but we are being pushed to change our ways, and it is time to do so.
Observe, be present with the situation at hand and choose your response. Repeat. With practice, responding instead of reacting becomes natural and instinctive and it creates a far more harmonious general life experience. That is how powerful and life-changing, these simple shifts in our consciousness can be.
In a world where we often struggle to understand our own reality, where we slowly start tapping into the knowledge of the Self and de-constructing separation beliefs, laughter can be one of the purest medicines to help us discover our true powers.
Wouldn’t it be just great if we could get to know ourselves deeply and not be afraid of sharing who we are with others? With no fear of judgement, to be able to bring our greatest gifts and share them with everybody?
Well, Jonathan P Sears (mostly known as JP Sears) for sure is doing his best in giving the gift of being himself to the planet. With loads of laughter and an unconventional way to speak about spiritual themes.
JP Sears is an emotional healing coach and international teacher founder of Inner Awakenings. He has been in the path of self-discovery, empowering others with his gifts and coaching sessions. JP has been working as a coach and healer for over 16 years. In October 2014, he felt inspired to bring even more of his comic side to YouTube, creating the Ultra Spiritualseries.
It’s truly meaningful when you find people in your life who can inspire you to be yourself ! Isn’t that one of the greatest gifts you can give to the world ? To be you ! The most authentic you.
Sharing his journey JP Sears has told us how he became his most authentic self and was able to let go of previous beliefs he had about his image and how he should or shouldn’t deliver his message; with that said, once he started stepping out of his comfort zone he was able to share with the world more of his personality and deliver his message in a unique talented way.
Here you can watch the full interview and learn a bit more about the man who created the Ultra Spiritual Series and his “secret agenda” behind it (not so secret after all).
I remember watching one of JP’s videos around a year ago having absolutely no idea what he was on about. The video subject was regarding taking Ayahuasca. Trust me, it’s already a controversial subject by itself. I was very intrigued by the video topic especially because I had just taken part in my first Ayahuasca ceremony. At the time, I didn’t realise what was the point of the video, rather than it’s focus on the comedy side. In fact, it wasn’t until recently after watching more of his amazing videos, I actually realised he was intentionally bringing up certain issues to be acknowledged by the spiritual community, using comedy to bring up those issues.
Here is the famous Using Ayahuasca video that brings up the use of sacred plants in a non sacred way:
It’s funny how one can get lost in the spiritual path and develop an Ultra Spiritual Ego, that was one of the first things that really put me off spirituality, soon after my “spiritual awakening”. There was a lot of: I’m right – you are wrong , we are better than those who are “sleeping” , unaware of their spiritual side. A common phrase I hear from so called “spiritual people” is : “Oh how do you manage to work in the city with all those people sleeping and that terrible energy?! I can’t stand those people”.
Well I guess JP tackles this issues with his videos pointing out how people can be overly judgemental when they walk the spiritual path promoting the very thing spirituality is meant to awaken you from: Separation!
In his videos he points out many of the spiritual community non-sense and the misuse of what embodying spirit actually is, as well as old beliefs around themes related to spiritual wisdom and the New Age movement.
One of my favourite things is the fact that his videos are becoming so popular and well received by the “non-spiritual” community, in doing so he is raising awareness about spirituality to crowds that would never dare to take a look into certain spiritual themes. I can safely say many of my “non-spiritual” friends are sharing, liking and watching his videos and JP is passing the message, as well as the frequency of his joyful self around the world.
JP’s is a real breath of fresh air and his work has truly touched me and inspired me to bring more of my personality into my work, I ought to be more of myself and let my power within shine bright , I even officially compromise in letting out more of my delightful mad silliness !
I hope his work can inspire you to be You. And be okay with whatever that means, being able to love yourself as you are , spiritual or not . After all .. like JP says: “What the hell is spiritual? Does anyone actually knows what that means ?”
He gives us a true example of how when you allow yourself to be yourself you can not only become a big success but most importantly , bring your Super Powers to shine their light in the world.
