Why are people suffering?
I hope you are ready for one of the biggest revelations of your life. At least it’s been to me when I first heard this and let it sink in, then gradually implemented it in my life.
It changed me completely.
The main reason for our suffering are thoughts. Yes, exactly. More precisely believing our thoughts as being real, true.
Does that sound weird?
Just read on.
We know as a fact from science that thoughts trigger emotions. That means that the way you think soon starts to be the way you feel.
For example if you have a thought about you not being enough, very soon you will feel sad, disappointed, demotivated.
But if you think about the night out with your best friends, you feel joyful, happy, hopeful.
Let that sink in!
We believe thinking happens to us and we have no control of what’s going on in our heads. This is true until you start awakening, becoming more and more conscious and taking back the control. With no “boss” in position, chaos is normal.
You can choose your thoughts!
I remeber years ago when I heard this, I didn't really understood what that means. Later in an Echart Tole's videos I've also heard, thinking as such is unneccesary. Most of your day you don't need thinking. I found that funny. I mean I've had short periods of times when there is was no thinking but completly turning it off for hours is definetly something a lot of us would love to experience! Just Silence :D
Of course it needs practice like everything else.
It starts by becoming more and more aware of what’s going on inside you. Coming back to Here and Now, connecting to yourself more and more often. Checking in: What am I thinking about all day long, what are my recurring thoughts? how do I feel most of the time?
You will find your patterns. We have around 70.000 thoughts a day, but 95% of them are the same as the previous day. That's shocking!
Why is important to start this little self-observation quest?
These are the first glimpse of freedom. You Consciousness will start expanding. You start realizing that you can observe what you think, and even later choose what you think, you start taking back control over your life.
Take responsibility for what's going on in there and start changing it.
And most importantly your thoughts and emotions are the KEYS to a new future.
Science proved: our thoughts and emotions create our reality.
The way you think and the way you feel create an electromagnetic field around you which has a vibration, and this vibration attracts situations, people, circumstances which are alike. Alike attracts alike. This is the Law of attraction.
Start it today. With little steps. The more you connect with the present moment the more momentum will take.
Start choosing thoughts that make you feel good.
Choose to think about all the things you have rather than what you don’t have.
Think about all the reasons you love where you are, all the reasons you love what you do, all the reasons that prove how lucky you are, how many people love you and how many people you love.
And just feel GRATEFUL.
Here and now.
In March this year life gave us an opportunity to retreat from our busy rat race, called Life.
We have been told for years that soon, big changes will come and will completely change life the way we know it. And still we were taken by surprise.
After years of being a part time helping practitioner, last year I decided to become a full time coach and therapist. I'd been working hard to lay the foundation of a business, became self-employed, acquired some more certificates and accreditations, I've hired a business coach (investing all my saved money) and started building my strategy.
March was the launch month. Everything looked perfect, everything was finally lining up for me. I moved to Palma, at the beginning of March, to be closer to the buzz of life, to the opportunities, to events.
I had a signed contract, an amazing opportunity to work as a therapist for a luxurious Wellness Company, my first two retreats were coming up in April and I had two group-workshops booked in a few days in a local Spa.
I was super excited, thrilled to dive into my new city life and start living the life-style I'd been waiting for.
15 of March Spain goes into State of alarm followed by complete Lockdown and my dreams, hopes and plans fall to pieces.
The first few days were tough. Facing reality, that All is gone.
I was confused and disappointed, who wouldn't have been?
Then as a reaction and I think as a compensation, I started pushing myself and forcing myself in the new fashion of doing everything online. "Reinvent yourself", they were saying! So I tried to follow the New wave.
In the first few days I was beating myself up with all the: "I should..., I have to..., I need to...'s". But I just wasn't feeling it, it just didn't feel good.
So I stopped and decided to enjoy my lockdown. Do things I like doing, do things everybody is doing. So I did that. Watched Netflix for 2-3 days non-stop, read conspiracy theories for a couple of days, drank some wine and sunbathed.
It was fun but after a week I came to my senses and I heard my inner voice saying: "Ok, and now? What's next? What do you really want from life?"
And it was the day I went inside, I started meditating everyday, I joined online yoga classes (I'd never been a yoga lover before), I had uplifting and inspiring talks with my friends, I created a healthy routine, joined a 21 days abundance challenge and worked out all the fears, insecurity, worry and beliefs that were coming up as a result.
First time in my life I started to think long term. I mean in 10 years from now. It must sound silly or crazy considering the circumstances but it centered me. It gave me motivation and energy. It gave me hope. I got powerful guidance and insights through my meditations and a completely new future plan started to form in my imagination.
I became focused, present and energized. I new life started to unfold.
10 weeks later here I am, on my birthday feeling like a different person.
I've never been so sure and so confident in my life and this clarity naturally and effortlessly started to attract abundance and new opportunities in my life.
It was the best thing it could happen. An enormous blessing.
I'm endlessly grateful for my chosen path and for everything that enters in my life.
There are no good things and bad things, desirable and not desirable situations,
...there are only opportunities for growth.
