How to Believe in Your Power? | From “I can’t” to “I’am doing it!”

How to observe where you are to arrive in your power successfully? How to meet your power?

My first step was to learn about a strong dualistic belief we have(well, I did). I needed to move from impossible to possible, understanding it was just opinions. 

The book that found me was talking about the infinite possibilities we have while we develop the trust in the miracle, the impossible in this world we PERCEIVE. 

I read the Coca-Cola story, v8 motor story, Disney Story, Saints stories, and many other success stories. All of them were amazing. Since I was leaving my childhood, I could see myself as them, powerful as them, but I know it can be difficult in an adult mind. Be able to do anything in the material aspect was growing on me. However, nowadays, I have difficulty accepting myself as an “equal” of Gandi, Madre Teresa, even Jesus that taught was we could do more than he did if we had faith. When I asked the Universe to learn about how we can manifest, how we can live a life of manifestation, and I learned about this existence we all are, I had a difficult time accepting it. Still am!

So, here I want to share two things, that will be one, you can do to see, meet and be comfortable with your power. 

  1. Read and see videos of success stories. Here you can observe two reactions. How do you feel about others’ success? Do you believe it? Do you feel happy for them? Do you feel like, “yes, it is possible”? Do you feel a bit of fear in your belly? Everything you felt is yours, don’t think that it is the person fault, even if the person lied anything is possible, may not have happened to this person, but it can for someone else, it doesn’t matter actually, because here you are just adding motivation to go after what you want and observing how your ego, your thoughts, your paradigms react to success. No, the person is not a liar, it was not luck, it is not an exception, everything you feel or think it is you. You react to your life, so observe and correct your way to perceive life. Once I read that everything is “supporting actors” of your life. I thought it was poetic. Now I see that in your reality, people, things, animals, will act for you and what you feel and think are the director of how they act. If this is too big to understand now, it is ok, it took me time to. Let’s go to the next part. When you feel motivated watching other people’s successes, use them to add power to yourself. See the impossible happening can open doors in your mind, make you feel good, and change your reality. 
  2. Be present. And I would like you to tattoo it “Be present”. If you want to be better in everything in your material life, practice to be present. I have many techniques to help you with it on this blog. You can always look at Eckhart Tolle that dedicates his talks to talk about it. You can learn about alchemy to learn about it. Even if you are considered orthodoxy you can still learn it. If you read with an open heart and let your ego in the next room just for a moment you will understand that the philosophical stone is not a physical thing, that you will be the lead to be transformed in gold. And, yes, many people believed it could be literal, but I would say that you will be able to do such things after you be alive in your true existence if it is your purpose. Until there, be the stone, the lead transforming into gold. “Be present” can become something boring to read, as “practice gratitude”, but believe me, you will listen and read a lot of this because it is that simple, but ego can’t work here and it is working on your ego (mainly) that you will access those realities.

Be present, and motivate yourself with success stories. 

See you soon.

How to Live and Find Your Purpose

How I learned about find and live my purpose. Because is simple is harder to accept it

I was thinking about my role on this earth in this life. I already lost days of the night asking myself my purpose and the purpose of all that. Each question made me find a book, a video, a speech or an insight.

Today I want to share what I’ve learned about our role here. I already said that I am sure that “hard work” is bullshit hen we are talking about achieving a goal. It s beautiful when it is about put food in a table, but not our role here on earth. Nobody roles actually. And just to remember, hard work is to do what you don’t want to do. I can write all day long and I don’t think that it is hard work, but make me study a subject I don’t have an interest in a whole during a day and I will feel like dying inside.

What is our part become clear after an insight that was clearer when I studied alchemy. Alchemy defined for me in a clearer way what I’ve learned in some religions but wasn’t so clear.
First, life is not made of duality, but trinity. Father, Son, Holy Spirit or Brahma, Vishnu e Shiva and others. We are used to the beginning and the end, god or bad, beautiful or ugly. When we open our eyes a bit we can learn that quite rarely those extremes are the reality. So, what is in the middle? Well, life!

But I won’t go deep in it right now, let’s talk about the second thing I learned. We are made of three parts, I will use simple words here but you can go deeper on some books I will live the link below.

Body, the material part. The Salt for alchemy. I would say the anchor. It is the beginning that will see an end. From what we come we will go back and at some point be transformed into another material thing.

Soul, the wavy. Connected with your mind and mainly your subconscious mind. It needs a material form to emanate it. In alchemy is the Mercury. The gas or the oil. What you extract. It connects the materiality because it is part material and the non-material because it is volatile too. Goes from solid to light. (I need to say, that these connections with words can be different because where I am from we see the soul as something particular from the person, where it has some connection with the body, but in some languages, this is the Spirit that can be seen as a ghost, the energy from that person. So you can change the word to be fit your language and understanding)

Spirit, pure energy. It is what it is. For alchemy the refined liquor. It is the non-material, the higher mind.

So, if you understand that as The Holy Spirit you choose a path on Earth, then you are born body and your essence keep connected with the One Eternal Memory and the material body, as we said. Your Soul, your consciousness.

A trinity you are! As trinity, your smaller part has the smaller part on your path, on your purpose, on the reason you are here. Your body, your physical self must do the least because it is just a small grain of material substances. So here you just play the game that must be know from your Soul. I will give a simple example.

You want to win the lottery, your Soul knows you must buy a ticket if it is your path to do it. So your body executes the action. You need to breathe to keep alive, your unconscious mind makes your body do it. Your Soul is the orchestra conductor working with so many minds and functions. And my Spirit? You may ask. It is music. It is the joy in the right number – If you find your path on a lottery game, of course. And please, don’t confuse path with destiny, the path is the choice you made in wholeness with your trinity. The one truth. If in some part of your trinity you don’t find truth in this path, you won’t win it.

If you know, because you can do on purpose and with love something, your path. You will know what to do because your soul will say, show, make your dream with… And won’t be much. We will want to do more, but it is not your limited body duty. I believe that some people, highly connected, can see and know more about this part we can see. But, all of us, at some level need to work with faith. Act, know, and faith are the trinity of your part of the deal here on earth. And if what you know changes after a while, it is normal. We won’t be born in such a concrete way to do only one thing the whole life. Actually, you can do whatever you want as much as you want. We are here, in a broad way to see and say to be this trinity. So it will be a completely normal change dream, path, purpose during this small part of our life.

I hope this helps you be more aware of the size you are as spirit and that most of the time life is a dark night we must walk with faith knowing we are being guided, you just need to practice listening to your guide, your intuition, God!
