Did you ever stop to wonder about the difference between being happy and being strong? And especially that we can be both?
Is there a difference between being happy and being strong?
Is a synthesis between then possible?
In my opinion, of course it is. The problem is
We can be happy and strong. When cultural distortions become become collective belief systems, we develop this idea that we have to choose between being strong and being happy, because the idea of happiness, or joy, sometimes is linked to the idea of not making efforts, not working, or not dedicating ourselves to something meaningful.
And this really is a very shallow, superficial way of looking at happiness and joy, right?
We can have pleasure, we can rest, we can enjoy all things in life, and we can also spend some of our time dedicating ourselves to projects and be happy in the process.
Did you ever wonder about the power of words?
There are three things I believe it's important to talk about regarding words.
First of all, words create realities.
They are - literally - the creators of our realities.
Second of all, words affect other people in a very deep way.
And third of all, they express who we are, where we are, and how we connect to life in our souls.
These three things are important for us to understand.
The first point make us realize
This is powerful - much more powerful than we realize. Since thoughts create realities, and we think with words,
When you become aware of the quality of the words you think, you'll realize
So you may think specific words, which already creates realities. And once you speak...
As human beings, we can come up with the most sophisticated excuses for procrastination, justifying our fear of change, fear of the unknown and fear of something different and original.
One of the most common ones is "divine timing".
What is the difference between divine timing and procrastination?
What's the difference?
My idea of divine timing is when we do everything in our power for something to happen and for it to work, and then we relax, trust, surrender and wait for life to unfold into what we want and manifest the outcomes that we wish to pursue. This is a Higher Self perspective and it's a healthy way to live.
It's very different from procrastination.
We convince ourselves we're not ready. We postpone things and avoid them. We have opportunities and convince ourselves it's not time right now.
Did you ever stop to wonder about why we go through a crisis?
The reason we go through a crisis is because a purge of energy is happening.
Our Higher Selves are purging energy that doesn't serve us.
In other words, a crisis is a way of Higher Self communication - it's consciousness talking, or a language of consciousness, if you will.
It tells us we are not on track in a specific are of life, or in our thought patterns.
Because we've been off-track in our actions and our thinking, we've accumulated unwanted energy.
When we have stagnant energy that doesn't serve us, it can be installed in our bodies, in our professional lives, financial life, friendships, love relationships, families or even with ourselves.
We get off-track in terms of achievement, fulfillment and in just being who we truly are.
To go straight to the point,
A crisis can be a purge in the body, and...
Did you ever stop to wonder about how we block the best of life?
You know, we're not victims to the blockages.
Nothing is done to us from the outside.
Whenever we have "not-so-great" experiences or go through turmoil, it is because we are creating unconscious, subconscious or sometimes even conscious blockages to the best of life.
So the approach here is to connect to abundance and fulfillment, and the fact that the best of life is always available for us...
We create walls that do not allow us to tap into, flow and enjoy this amazing life connection.
And this happens because our culture, inherited belief systems and personal thought patterns and other internalized mechanisms block the best of life.
These obstacles or blockages are very familiar to us, and some of us have some idea of how powerful they are, but most of us really do not.
Even if we do a lot of inner work and really dedicate ourselves to personal growth, we need to be aware...
Did you ever wonder about how you can make peace with your fear?
What are we afraid of, anyway?
Talking about fear in general can go on for hours, and it has to do with specific energies in our bodies and minds. If you want to dig deeper into this topic, go here.
What I want to focus on today is are three specific types of fear that are universals of the human experience.
The fear of death.
The fear of our own unconscious mind.
And the fear of intimate love with a significant other.
I notice a lot of people have a predominant fear - one or two of the three.
People who are afraid of death tend to be a little hypochondriac, they are very focused on their health, and often identified with the disease when they get sick or have a chronic condition.
Because the fear of death is so paralyzing, it has to do with attachment to the physical world and a materialistic mindset. It's about believing our physical world is all there is.
Even in a very small percentage of people who are...
Did you ever stop to think about how consciousness is a huge step into personal development - but it is not enough?
Consciousness is important, but insufficient if you want to create lasting changes and expansion in your life.
Inspired action is effective when we know what we have to change in our lifestyle and our thinking in order to create the life we want.
Changing our thinking and changing habits is not easy, and on its own it's already a huge task.
When we are changing our thinking in our conscious minds but not taking action, it means we're not changing our thinking in the unconscious or subconscious mind.
There are three: the conscious mind, which is 10% to 3% of our minds. It's rational and always wants the best for us.
The remaining percentage of the mind corresponds to the subconscious mind, which is where our ...
Did you ever stop to wonder about superstitious beliefs regarding our ancestors, our past lives and our karma?
And that a lot of our understanding and concepts about these things may be amplified and distorted by superstitious beliefs?
As you probably know if you've been following my videos for a while, been in my courses and at Ranova, you know that I do not like superstitious thinking.
It is a fear-based mentality.
And the sad thing is that superstition blocks our minds and for many, many years, decades and centuries, superstition has been associated with spirituality.
Believing in things that our senses cannot grasp is not superstitious, but this can get confusing if we don't dive deeper into it.
When we know that subtle and non-manifested reality is reality regardless. We can develop this understanding with our consciousness expansion and with the help of a sharp mind.
What's the difference between a "life script" and your Sacred Path?
Did you ever stop to think about this?
A "life script" is when we live by specific patterns that are inherited by social values, and - pay attention to this - by
This is very common between parents and children, because parents want the best for their kids, of course, but often they guide their children to follow a specific path that they believe is the best for the child, without realizing that maybe the child has other plans.
And often people just “obey parents” on the unconscious level, even after they've become adults.
As human beings, we have three basic levels of consciousness:
Did you ever stop to wonder about the source of instant gratifications?
What about their consequences?
And on a deeper level, have you ever associated Inner Child and Ego gratifications and compared them to Higher Self fulfillment?
As you can probably tell, they are very different in nature, and bring different consequences too.
In reality, we're talking talk about three different types of pleasure here.
The first is Inner child gratification, which is more oriented to having fun no matter what.
The second is Ego gratification, which is more oriented to power and control, and
If you're familiar with the work we develop at Ranova and with the Cardinal Method of Life Connection, the Inner Child and the Ego are aspects of our psyches that are binary.
We have a healthy Inner Child in a healthy Ego and a wounded aspect of...
