Change is an unavoidable reality, the only constant & certain thing that exists in life. Change is not a fashion, neither a concept created by indignant people, civil servants, socialists, conservatives, trade unionists or popular instigators. Human beings are the product & result of changing, a consequence of evolution -human beings and any alive creature, and also technology, politics, economics, cinema, literature, gastronomy, leisure time, Formula 1,…
However, the need for change that goes beyond those limits and transcends it has become a reality these days. Many of us look for a deeper change that really means a transformation or a catharsis even. We want to take a quantum leap from an attitude that can be rebellious, reasoned, consistent or belligerent depending on each individual. There is a real need for a quality step forward, a general feeling laying within our globalised reality.
I have a theory which is not only mine. Luckily I share it with many others who mentioned it before. This theory states that the deep need for a change is the consequence of living too long turning our backs to our genuine and authentic nature. We gave up looking within to put the attention outside. We left behind our ancient being to focus on immediate pleasure. We took away space and importance from love & respect and instead we gave voice & vote to competitiveness and to that thought of ‘I must win whatever it might take and over anything and anyone’. We can only manage for a while doing that but it is impossible to keep living & creating eternally from that ruling society model. If I fight against the elements to protect my own interest and to increase my profits, even when I know that I am causing some level of damage to others, then I am digging my own grave or my children’s grave or my friends grandchildren’s grave even.
That’s how we reach the point where we are right now. Our system stinks, the ship is sinking and it doesn’t matter who is on the helm right now because the responsibility is not only theirs but also ours.
Getting angry doesn’t help me and I don’t like going there because it makes me feel bad. If something makes me feel bad then I know it is not good for me. That’s why I decide not to get angry and instead I decide to guess what is my responsibility within this great mess that we’ve created. I know where, when or with whom I made my mistakes. I know what I could do in a different way to obtain more ecological outcomes. I know what I can do from now on so the consequences of my actions become seeds of light, respect & love.
I am aware that some people think of me as a posing idealist naïve victim of optimism and that is fine. I am looking for my place just like they are looking for theirs. I am not here to please everyone, not even to always get along with my own way. My mission is to be me with all the consequences, being loyal to my essence & feelings, creating my own flow, failing when my learning history requires so and facing challenges whenever it is necessary in order to achieve a higher good. My mission is to make my own mistakes and to keep moving forward by using improved tactics & strategies. That’s how I build my living, sometimes slowly and sometimes at a fair pace. I choose the rhythm according to my inner cadence, which is connected with the Earth beat & with the whole Universe. I am an irreplaceable part of that and its needs me to be, because Life would still be life without me but then it would be something else.
We are all part of the same mechanism. We are all here to fulfil a mission in life. We are all super-heroes right in this historical moment that we are creating and reality challenges us every minute with a new adventure, with an obstacle to overcome or with a goal to reach.
However, some of the ‘delights’ established by this decrepit system of ours are to numb our sense of personal & general responsibility and to dull that inner beat that is connecting us with the original Source.
Coaching to me has been and still is a reconnection with that deep universal root that drives me to take control of my own life, being aware of my responsibility and what I can do. That’s actually what I am meant to pass on to people around me, my friends and family, my clients and any person I find on my way who is a potential catalyst for change.
Results are different depending on the recipient’s attitude and that’s ok as it is. However, there are many open hearts around who don’t know how or with which purpose because they don’t find the hand hold or don’t manage to see what is it that they can do from where they are. That deep doubt full of hope for a better world is the same one I felt one day and I still feel sometimes. That’s why I understand these people, I see myself in them and what I would love to share is that everything is fine as it is. I want to tell them that fear, doubts, instability and sadness are the result of them being disconnected and that we just have to go back to our Source to keep flowing. I would love to tell them that we are wonderful and perfect creatures with a mission to fulfil; that all the answers to all the questions lay within each of us; that we are strong, powerful, creative and kind by nature; that we are loving & light beings; that our action matters and has an impact in our lives first and in the whole Universe afterwards; that we are not separated from each other but linked.
That’s the genuine and true intention behind organising my first weekend workshop (in Spanish only this time) by myself, an experience that I wish to become a regular encounter because part of my mission is to keep on sharing & building up this message through the beautiful tools that I’ve discovered thanks to my training, readings, daily living, relationships with family, friends and clients. I do understand now that everything that happened to me, all the people and situations occurred, all the experiences and consequences I ended up with, have been part of my personal learning curve, the one that is meant to be lived just by me. That’s why it is so unique and unrepeatable.
I’ve built this workshop with care, love & delicate attention. I’ve designed it according to my way of feeling, using those details that have a meaning to me. I let myself go by my inner voice to flow and to function without unnecessary effort. That’s how I want to bring to life every project that I become part of from now on, always listening to that rooted voice who knows simply because it is and it doesn’t look for mentions, awards or praise. I just want to be me, sharing the way I feel and think, connecting with those who sense my vibration, giving my love and my message away, receiving what others have for me through this eternal dialogue of giving for receiving and receiving for giving. That’s the pulse of the Universe.
And that’s the reason behind the name of the workshop: ‘Life immersion: diving into our own depths’. We must go to the deep in order to generate again the connection, to find ourselves and what we really are. That’s what I wish for myself, for all of you. For your own good, for my benefit and for the wellness of everything around us.
Our unique and limited team of life adventurers will meet the weekend of the 18th, 19th and 20th of August in a very special home located in Olías (Málaga). We will share feelings, doubts, emotions and experiences from freedom and respect, creating an energetic bubble that will go beyond our estates and results.
In this occasion it will be all in Spanish. If you want to become part of it we will be delighted to have you. This will be the very first of many encounters and actually, being the first one makes it truly special. It will be a beginning, a seed and I would love you to be there seeing it come to life.
If I really want something I do what I can to get it. Maybe I don’t do everything I can or at least not always because I like to balance things by taking the circumstances into account. Then if it has to be, it will be and if it doesn’t happen then I believe that’s the way it is meant to be. I don’t manage all the playing cards, only the ones I’ve been dealt.
A few weeks ago I discovered through a friend (thank you, Ángeles) the video that I am attaching here for you. It is a real anecdote, a wedding proposal, a love declaration not only from this lad to his lady but also from all the friends & family members that became part of the surprise. I am sure that a smile & a tear will come out when watching it :)
Watching this video and feeling the emotion that it generates, I was thinking about two main values for human beings: creativity & love.
Sometimes we feel that creativity is only related to professional artists, those who make a living out of it, who are able to come out with an unique piece just by making use of their knowledge and the materials they have. They could be painters, sculptors, musicians, designers, architects, chefs... However, it is possible to be creative without being part of one of these trades. We can be creative on a daily basis when we decorate our home, when we get a present for someone, when we cook or even when communicating with others. We can imprint our personal signature on every action, giving our very special touch, our love & dedication.
This is when the second part of our equation comes into place: love. There is a magical & spontaneous flow between love & creativity. They interact & empower each other. Love makes us creative, forcing us to behave and do things in a different way, helping us to show who we are in every little detail dedicated to that person that we love. Scented candles & flowers for that intimate dinner, coloured ballons & surprises for a birthday party, a memo at work congratulating colleagues for their commitment, a fun lesson, a handmade scarf, a hand-written poem, a dish that we haven´t cooked before... Through these actions we reveal our genuine effort and we express our feelings for the person that we do it for.
We can be creative & loving in every field of our life. By doing it we will enjoy the energy brought into existence by that action. It will also add a special value to our actions.
If we look at it that way, who is not a potential artist? What are you an artist at? ;-)
