Know Your Values

These past few years have been nothing but growth for me. This growth, though, came with so much disappointment and hurt but the lessons are so valuable that I can’t put a price to this. One of the things that I learned was the importance of truly knowing what your values are.

The reason why you want to know what your values are is because if you want to attract the kind of people that you need, the friendships that will truly nurture your soul, the loving man or woman that you want, etc. it’s important to know what you value. For instance, I realized these past two years that I truly value people who don’t consistently speak awful about others whether that be their family, friends, etc. Why? Because to me this shows me what the person is capable of saying even about me and it tells me what is in their heart.

When you know what you truly value, you will attract and let in those things and people that align with what you value. But unless you get a good understanding of who you are and what matters most to you, you can’t position yourself to allow only the things, people and situations that you truly want.

So, how do you know what your values are? Well, this comes with self-analysis. It comes with the willingness to go deep within you to understand what truly matters most to you. It takes a willingness to want to take the time for you to know who you are. And it takes a willingness to grow. Know that as you get older, your values may slightly change due to the experiences you have. Every encounter you have, every relationship, every circumstance will shape you in some way.

If you allow the growth, you allow the lessons that you are meant to learn. You will allow yourself to be a little better than yesterday. You will allow yourself more wisdom. It is through this growth that you will learn more about your own values.

When you know your values, you won’t waste your time on relationships that will just have you spiraling down. You don’t allow circumstances that don’t add to you. You are more willing to let go of the things that are not working for you no matter how good those things may look on the surface.

The values that I am referring to in today’s post are the ones that are truly aligned with your true essence. Know that there are times when we may have values that conflict with one another, which is something that I mention because of personal experience. I will get into conflicting values on another post. For now, it’s important that you become aware of the values that you know that will add to your life greatly. This is why in my coaching program, I coach people on knowing their deep down important values because this is part of mastering yourself to greater well-being.

So, if you find yourself in constant opposition to what you want in life, missing the mark or just not getting what you want, then you have to look into your values. This will help indicate to you the direction you need to be heading in life. I would like to invite you in today’s post to take a look at your values if you see anything that isn’t the way you want it to be.

Look Forward to New Memories….

I’ve had some people wanting me to post about grief, especially since I lost my dad back in May of 2016. Those who know me well, knew some of the hard times I’ve had. Somehow at this time it is difficult for me to write about grief because I am still grieving my dad. Nonetheless, grief doesn’t only apply to when we lose a loved one to death, one can grief the ending of many things like the ending of a job that one love, the end of a relationship, the end of a friendship, and the list goes on. So how does one deal with these kinds of grief that I just discussed? Although I think no one and nothing is replaceable, I think the best remedy is to allow yourself to feel the emotions you feel, go through the grieving process but always look forward to new memories.

We as human beings have a need to belong, feel needed and of connection. This is because this provides us with some sense of purpose. We need purpose because that is what gives our life meaning. Without purpose, life just feels meaningless and life is not meaningless at all.

Grief is a process that we all will go through at some point of our life and we all go through it in different ways. For two years, a part of me was in denial of my dad’s passing, and mind you, I was there when he passed away. Denial is one of the stages to grieving. Then it hit me on year 2 of his passing that he is actually physically gone. During the two years that I was in denial, I did gain weight. I gained weight because a big part of me didn’t want to feel the emotions I was feeling. This is a big mistake.

Not wanting to feel your emotions is a big mistake because all these emotions will find an outlet somehow. That outlet can be alcohol to numb your emotions, overeating or not eating much, smoking, shopping excessively, among many other things that can mask your emotions.

In any kind of loss that you may have, it’s important to allow yourself to go through the stages that you have to go through and feel your emotions. Know that life goes through different seasons. With any kind of loss, it’s important to allow things to flow. Allow yourself to process what happened. Allow yourself to feel the impact of this loss. Allow yourself to experience the stage of grief however way it needs to go through. But, if you notice that you are hitting rock bottom, please seek help. Know that you are not alone. And remember one very important thing, it’s important that no matter the loss, know that you have new memories to look forward to.

If you are going through a divorce, know that you have even more beautiful memories to experience because the person that is for you has yet to arrive. If someone who you thought was your friend for many years all of a sudden that friendship is broken, know that you have even more beautiful memories to experience with other people who have yet to arrive in your life. You lost a job that you so care about, know that you have even more beautiful memories to look forward to since a bigger and better door has yet to open. You lost a person you care about because they passed away, you still have beautiful memories to look forward to, even if that person will no longer be a part of those new memories.

The reason why you want to remind yourself that you have new memories to look forward to is because when we remain in the thought of what is lost, that can set us back even more, contributing to us hitting rock bottom. Grieving a loss is only natural. That is not something for you to avoid or force yourself not to go through. But what you don’t want to do is remain in the feelings and thoughts of that loss for too long to the point where that is your only focus point.

For as hard as it may be to accept, it is important to always keep in the back of our mind that nothing is forever, not even we are forever. This is the reason why we need to enjoy the present time we have, make the most of it, and know that there are new memories to look forward to always. This mentality is what will allow you to be resilient during very hard times. Wherever the mind goes, the body will follow.

So with today’s post, I want to encourage you if you find yourself feeling very low due to a loss, please remember that you have new memories to look forward to. I dedicate today’s post to my mother who is sadden by my dad’s passing since they have known each other since they were 11 years old. This is because I want her to remember that she still has new memories to look forward to, even if my dad is no longer in those new memories.

What Is Your Hidden Disease?

Sometimes what we have to be careful with is not with what we know but what we don’t know. Why? Because it’s what we don’t know what can hurt us the most. It’s said that knowledge is power and it is true. But it’s not just knowledge that provides us with power, awareness is also power in its own way.

How is awareness power? Awareness is equivalent to a light being shined on something. When you shine the light on something, it’s no longer in the dark. It’s no longer something you don’t know. It’s no longer something that can sabotage you. It’s no longer something that can creep up on you.

Many times the reason why we don’t have the life how we quite want it- we attract things we don’t want, have relationships that are below satisfying, don’t find ourselves quite where we want to be or even sabotage good things that come our way- is because there are things that are not in our awareness that are messing us up.

It is for this reason that I ask you what is your hidden disease. Is it low self-esteem that you may not be aware of? Is it a past experience that has traumatized you in some way? Is it a limiting belief? Is it some kind of emotion that has become toxic? There are many things that can actually block us tremendously without our awareness.

All these things I just mentioned above are just some of the many hidden diseases that may be hidden without us knowing. They are hidden diseases because they spread, contaminating our whole life, paralyzing us and preventing us from enjoying greater well-being.

Many times we don’t know about these hidden diseases until it is so obvious that something is seriously wrong. Just like when we physically don’t know that the body is ill until we see symptoms that we just can’t ignore. These hidden diseases are always giving us signs but many times we tend to ignore them. If you want greater well-being, it is important that you don’t ignore these signs.

Don’t let hidden diseases get the best of you. Know that you are the one in control at all times of yourself and your life. Yes, there are certain things you don’t have control but those things are external things like the weather, other people’s actions and choices, etc. But when it comes to your inner self, you are the one in control.

You are more than welcome to share with me in the comments below what are your hidden diseases and what are you going to do to overcome them. Remember and I will repeat this again, when it comes to your inner self, you are the one in control.

Why Selfishness Is Necessary

Like anything in life, everything can be good or bad, it all depends on the context in which it is in and the degree in which it is used. In today’s blog post, I would like to discuss something that perhaps for some it may seem as if I’m promoting something that is narcissistic but on the contrary, it is one key ingredient for your overall well-being.

Flight Attendants instruct passenger during the safety video to first adjust their mask before helping others. This is because how in the world can you help someone else if you first don’t help yourself? It’s impossible to help someone else if you first are not helping yourself. It is impossible to serve others when you don’t serve yourself first.

You can only give what you have. So if you want to give the best of you, you have to give the best to yourself. To do this, you need to have some degree of selfishness. The kind of selfishness that I am referring to is not the one where you only think of yourself and no one else. The one that I am referring to is the one where you think of your well-being first. It’s the kind of selfishness where you think of what makes you happy first. It’s the one where you have healthy boundaries for yourself and for others. Yes, even you need healthy boundaries for yourself! This is because many times we can be our own worst enemies.

Being selfish allows you to fill your cup first. You can’t serve from an empty jar, same thing if you are empty yourself. You have nothing to offer to others and so to serve others you need to serve yourself. This is what will allow you to give to others because you have in abundance.

Being selfish allows you to take care of yourself first by meeting your own needs. When you meet your needs, you are good. You feel taken care of. You feel great. You feel loved. Feeling loved, full and taken care of is so basic to your overall well-being. As adults, it’s important to remember that it is us who are responsible for our well-being. When we take care of our own responsibilities, this is when we will be able to be better versions of ourselves.

Being selfish allows you the space to think of yourself first. In today’s world, we are wrongly taught that thinking only of ourselves is bad. We were not designed to be of service for others at the cost of our well-being. No! Yes, it’s important to serve others as long as it is not hurting our well-being. For this, we need that space to think of ourselves first. It is from this position that you will be of greater service to others because there won’t be any resentment or hurt feelings in the long run.

So being selfish doesn’t have to be a bad thing. It can actually be a beautiful thing but it depends on your perspective of it. If you find yourself thinking and feeling that being selfish is wrong, think about whether not being selfish is hurting you in any way. If it is, then I encourage you to reconsider your thoughts on being selfish.  This one change in perspective can make a tremendous difference in your overall well-being.

Where Are You Hanging Out?

You may read this topic and think that I am referring to where exactly are you hanging out physically as in your environment and although this may be important for purposes of influence, this is not what I am referring to.

There is a world that we tend to take for granted. A world that many of us may not be as aware as we should be. A world and an environment that truly creates the most impact in our life. A world that can literally allow us to have everything we want or it can literally sabotage us from having everything that we want. That world that I am referring to is the one that you hang out in and that is your inner world.

That’s right! I dare to go there because where we decide to hang out in regards to our inner world will be reflected in our outer world. Where we decide to hang out will determine how we will view things. Where we decide to hang out will determine whether we will respond to things or we will react to things. There is a difference between responding and reacting and I can discuss that on another blog post. Where we decide to hang out plays a big role in our overall well-being.

So let’s discuss this for a minute. Where are you hanging out? Know that where you decide to be mentally is totally up to you. What I mean with this is you decide what beliefs you will have. You decide what your thoughts will be. You decide the self talk you will have in your mind. You decide!

Know that where you decide to be emotionally is totally up to you. What I mean with this is you decide how you will feel. You decide how you will feel when others do things. You decide how you will feel when things don’t work out the way you want them to work out. You decide how you will feel during the day. You decide!

Know that where you decide to be physically is totally up to you. What I mean with this is you decide how energetic your body will be based on the way you treat it. You decide how you will respond to what your body signals to you. You decide what relationship you will have with your body. You decide!

If you find yourself constantly feeling sad, depressed, anxious, frustrated, etc., you have to question where have you been hanging out mentally and emotionally. You are what you are thinking and feeling. You are what you decide to be and feel. You need to remember this always. If you constantly find yourself feeling tired, lack of energy, and with no desire to do anything, you have to question where are you hanging out physically. Are you taking care of your body the way you are supposed to? What is your relationship with your body?

Where you hang out plays a big role in your overall well-being. You can’t take for granted where your thoughts are, your emotions are, how your relationship with your body is. You can’t afford to take any of this for granted. If you constantly find yourself struggling to find your peace and happiness, then I highly recommend you take the FREE course called, The Path to Your Nirvana™, where I guide you through five steps all geared toward having the courage to live your own happiness. All you have to do is click on the link https://bit.ly/2QbBZW4, put your name, email and choose which language you prefer since I also offer this course in Spanish.

If you find yourself feeling emotions that have turned toxic for you, allow this blog post to encourage you to look into where you are hanging out. You having this level of awareness will do wonders for your overall well-being.

Fight Your Demons

What I will be writing this week I can definitely tell you from personal experience that this is a difficult one. I can also guarantee you that anything that promises a fast solution, a quicker way of getting there or anything that guarantees you anything fast, are just phonies. Why? Because ANYTHING that you want, that person you know deep down inside that you are and those things that you have yet to acquire requires that you fight your demons and these demons can be quite downright nasty.

You may be wondering what demons am I referring to. Well, those demons can be anything from your limiting beliefs, your self-talk, your physical environment, your thoughts, your emotions, and as you can see, the list goes on. The reason why I call these demons is because they are exactly that- they rob you of your happiness, they stop you from living your joy, they hinder you from believing that you are meant for greatness and they stop you from living your truth.

The reason why, and I can tell you from personal experience, you may be still stuck in the same situation over and over again in life no matter how hard you try to change the situation is because you have demons that you probably are not aware of their existence and you probably don’t know what to do to overcome this.

If you want certain things in life and you notice that you are not having those things, then you have demons to fight. The first step in fighting those demons is to first be aware of their existence. You can’t overcome something that you are not aware what it is. It’s like you feel you are not yourself but you are not acknowledging that you are experiencing certain symptoms. You can’t stop what is going on if you first don’t acknowledge that something is going on.

The second step is in questioning what that demon is. Where is it coming from? What is causing it? Questioning this demon of yours will help you understand it’s existence.

And the third step would be to find something that would kill this demon. Now this may not be easy and it may come with resistance. This is when it becomes necessary to remember how this is ruining your life and how this is stopping you from living the life that you want.

Life is not meant to be a constant struggle. Life is not meant for you to live with limits. Life is not meant for you to live feeling not deserving. Life is not meant for you to live constantly attracting what you don’t want. When this is what you are currently experiencing, that means there is inner work to be done. This means there are things that needs to be resolved and taken care of within you. This is not a bad thing. On the contrary, all this leads to better self-care, which is very much needed if you want to be your best version.

It is because I truly believe that life is not supposed to be a struggle, on the contrary, you are meant to be living a life where you are living authentically and very happy, that I created the FREE course, The Path to Your Nirvana™, so that you can start gaining a deeper understanding of why you are not living the life that you want and what you can do to change that. If you’re interested, all you have to do is click on the link https://bit.ly/2QbBZW4, put your name, email and choose which language you prefer.

Remember that fighting your demons will help liberate you so that you can live the life that you have been wanting to live. It is crucial that you take this step if you find yourself going in circles in life and know that this is very much possible for you to do.

I would like to invite you to take the FREE course I created called The Path to Your Nirvana™, which is a 28 day course with 5 steps meant to help you live your own happiness by understanding first what is getting in the way of you being on your own path of happiness, how to overcome it, learning to understand your actions and focus and getting you to the path that your true essence has in store for you.

How Do You Know When You Are Feeling Depleted

Exhaustion, drained, fed up, anger, resentment- to feel all these things on a consistent basis is NOT how you’re meant to be feeling. Nor are you designed to be feeling sleepy all the time, flustered, overwhelmed nor disorganized.

I have to say that nowadays it can be pretty easy to feel this way with all that is put upon us, with the rhythm of life, it seems, and what society demands of us. But in the hectic world that we live in, it is even more necessary to be centered, to be healthy, to be in tuned because otherwise, you will go with the flow but not in a good way.

You would go with the flow of what society demands of you which many times means work, work, work with little play and little rest. It means being tired all the time, something that nature just didn’t have in mind for us. You would go with the flow of how other people want you to be and do. This is not what your soul wants.

Because I know that you deep down want total freedom; because I know that you deep down want to feel happiness; because I know that you deep down want more in life, you must know when you are feeling depleted. Why? Because feeling depleted robs your well-being. Feeling depleted keeps you stuck. Feeling depleted can lead to physical illness. Feeling depleted causes emotional, mental and spiritual dis-ease.

So, if you are constantly exhausted…. you are depleted. If you constantly feel overwhelmed…. you are depleted. If you feel fed up….. you are depleted. If you constantly feel drained…. you are depleted. When feeling any of this, it’s important not to ignore these feelings. These are symptoms of something going on in your life that has taken root and needs to be addressed.

If you constantly feel exhausted, you need to ask yourself where does this exhaustion come from. Is it physical exhaustion? Is it mental exhaustion? Is it spiritual exhaustion? Is it emotional exhaustion? There is a difference. If it’s physical exhaustion, then you need to question if you’re doing so much and need to slow down. Are you working a lot? Are you constantly working with little sleep? If it’s mental exhaustion, then you need to question your thoughts. What are you thinking about a lot? Do you have any concerns at the moment? If it’s spiritual exhaustion, then you need to question whether you are living in integrity with who you really are. Are you living your life or are you living someone else’s life? If it’s emotional exhaustion, then you need to consider your emotions and what it is trying to tell you. Are you constantly worried about something? Are you not listening to what your true essence is telling you? Is something not making you feel good?

Feeling depleted is the result of something not working out right in your life. It is the result of you not being in alignment. It is the result of you not living in integrity with who you really are. So feeling depleted can help you change your life for the better, if you allow this change. You allow this change by being aware of when you are depleted and why. After you find out why, you then take steps to correct this.

If you find yourself feeling depleted, I would like to invite you to lean into this feeling. Understand why it is there in the first place. What makes you feel this way? Where is it coming from? I guarantee you that doing this will propel you to your next level in well-being faster than you can imagine.
