One day, years ago, in a training of one of my many energy healing certification classes, my instructor said the human mind has the ability to fragment itself in different processes.
Up until that point, it felt fairly easy to understand and verify in my own life path. What I was not expecting was what she said next:
And that's one of the main reasons why many of us lead such confusing, recurrently unhappy lives.
Because our different mental processes are disconnected, and disproportional in our capacity to use them harmonizing and allowing them to co-exist in a healthy way can be a huge accomplishment that puts our general well-being and personal fulfillment on a ...
Did you ever wonder about the difference between Science, Philosophy, Religion, and Spirituality?
Our topic today is about how they differ.
Science is very much about facts - proven facts. It follows processes, measures results, requires long and deep research, and a consensus of many brains understanding that process to reach a temporary conclusion - until it evolves into another conclusion or confirms what has been said in the past.
In today's day and age, we seem to have two approaches to scientific development and thinking : Materialistic Science and Energy Science.
What I call "Materialistic Science" explains how matter functions.
This relates to our physical bodies, Nature and the world in the material sense.
As an example, let's look at the physical health of the body. The science of contemporary western medicine, also know as allopathic medicine, treats...
Did you ever think about how you live your life?
Are you surviving?
Or truly embracing life and living it?
So today I suggest we think about three things.
Number one ... are you just surviving?
Are you living from hand to mouth? Are you just struggling to get by?
Do you love what you do for a living?
Do you love your life as a whole?
Do you feel nurtured by the people around you - friends and family?
Are you happy with your job and income?
How do you feel about your home?
Do you just struggle to get by and survive without free time, and without freedom in general?
Ask yourself these questions, and know that
It may seem weird that our...
Hi, we're talking to awesome people today! And our guest is Priya Lakhi, a lawyer and a healer.
Since I’ve come across so many awesome people in my life, those who really call my attention are the ones I invite for this experience.
I met Priya at a Magnified Healing Third Phase Workshop and we sat across from each other. I'd never seen her, and anyone who comes to a Third Phase Workshop is a very special person, in my opinion.
So when Priya told the class a little bit of her story, I was very moved and I felt like her story was something that belonged to the world.
The reason I say this is that I'm very influenced by Native American Wisdom, and one of the things these traditions say is that
(for more on this, check our session 5 of our Course on Human Nature Membership program). So
I also believe awesome people are...
It gives us a lot of peace when we live from the heart and from the perspective of our virtues, instead of living from confusion, low self-esteem and false beliefs.
What are virtues? The first thing we need to know is that virtues are practical. They’re not intentions or feelings –
They express and manifest a choice for peace, compassion and good will, and always result in well-being if, and only if, they come from the Heart and not from an external moralistic, forced social duty.
When we live from our virtuous core we don’t react to other people’s demands or priorities. We give freely and spontaneously from our hearts in loving actions, and not because we want to please others. Nor do we engage in prejudice or judgments.
When we live from anger, or from childhood wounds without realizing it, we don’t even...
Having a superstitious mind is very different from developing spiritual consciousness. Being spiritual, as we discussed in a previous blog post, is all about living from a place of love in your heart.
And though spirituality and superstition are subtle, immaterial realities, being superstitious is a far cry from being spiritual in a loving perspective. It's especially different from cultivating love for self, because superstition comes from fear and can create unnecessary beliefs that disturb your peace of mind.
Knowing this, we understand
A healthy spiritual life, that is.
Fearful ideas restrict our lives and ability to take spontaneous actions. And the most long-lasting results we get from the toxic chemistry between fear and superstition are what I call mind prisons.
Where do superstitious minds come from? Some people may say they may come from religious beliefs, but not necessarily. I...
Living in spirituality and leading a spiritual life is not necessarily about being religious.
There are two things I believe are spiritual.
The first is knowing and believing there’s something beyond material existence - beyond our physical world and physical being.
There's something that transcends physicality and the material level.
The second is that we lead a spiritual life when we live from Love. Love is the ultimate power. So in this perspective, to be spiritual is to live from a virtuous core within.
When you act from a place of love, you're living a spiritual life.
As you can see, spirituality’s a broad concept. It doesn't mean you have to be religious, or that you must believe in things that transcend the physical world in a non-explainable, superstitious way.
It's knowing there's something beyond physical existence and that though Love is intangible, it is very practical, and can be present in each action of our lives, and in every moment of our days.
Going through our emotional pain may be harder than avoiding it, but not only is it worth it because it’s healthier in the long run, it's also not as bad as our minds tend to think.
Pain is part of life. And when we're working with the Cardinal Method of Life Connection, it means we're embracing our pain and our joy equally. They are both life-connection experiences. And pain is designed to end itself anyway.
I often see people having difficulty in individual and group sessions when they think it's easier to avoid pain than to go through it.
Since I believe nothing is just physical and everything is always energetic and emotional before it manifests in the physical world, if we avoid emotional pain, it will still be there and may become something else if we don’t face it eventually.
On the opposite end of the spectrum we have the option to embrace and live your emotional pain. The choice to ...
When we talk about "Negativity", many things may come to our minds. Problems, toxic thoughts, turmoil, blockages, difficult people. The list goes on. But honestly... what is negativity? And especially... why is designed to end itself?
After many years of study and research about this, I see the concept of negativity as something that stems from distortions.
This means that life is naturally wonderful, abundant, healthy, happy, joyful and juicy and all the good things.
When life is not happening like that, in what we can call "flow", there's an interference, blockage or distortion, which leads to negative outcomes, or negativity.
So negativity is a result.
It's a manifestation of a distorted perception of life. Ultimately, this distorted perception of life comes from our thoughts and feelings (to learn more about this, check our blog post Where Energy goes, Matter Follows... and Energy Follows the Mind).
And since it goes against the flow of life, it needs to be...
Our minds create our reality.
As many wise persons in Ancient History, such as Buddha and Aristotle, and contemporary thinkers such as Napoleon Hill have said, the mind is the most powerful source of energy there is. We’ve all watched movies like The Secret and What the Bleep do We Know? And the underlying idea behind all this is that
What we think, we create.
In other words, we mobilize energy with our thoughts, and where energy goes, matter follows.
So we have three realities here: matter, energy, and the mind.
The mind is the strongest of them.
The big question now is: from which part of the mind, or aspect of the psyche, are we creating our realities?
Most importantly, when we talk about diseases, does our mind create them too?
The answer is yes. We do make ourselves sick from our thoughts and our emotions. Toxic thoughts create toxic emotions, which in turn create stagnant energy that will eventually get stuck in the body if we don’t do something about it...
