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.

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.

Are You Connected With Yourself?

Last year was challenging and scary for me because I got to experience something I had never experienced before. It all started with lightheadedness that lasted for days. Then after days of feeling this way, on my father’s second year since his passing, I experienced what seemed like a panic attack.

A frightened emotion swept me and shook me to the core. I felt it all in my chest. What I had experienced led me to feeling lightheaded again the next day. I had to go to the doctor for the second time. The irony of it all is that everything physically is fine. But I knew I wasn’t fine.

Days passed and I felt sadness. All this led me to think something was seriously wrong. A friend of mine told me that he thinks this is psychosomatic. I thought he may just be right. Then I realized something that I just need to share.

I came to the realization that NO ONE is immune to feeling sad or anxious, even the strongest person can fall prey to this. Then in the wake of Kate Spade’s news of her passing and what some say that she had suffered from depression and anxiety I came to a conclusion. I am pretty sure that depression, anxiety, any of the strong, negative emotions, that then one experiences physically, is a disconnection from the self and the divine.

In this blog post, I want to encourage and remind you that you are STRONGER than you think you are! You are SMARTER than you think you are! You are LOVED more than you can possibly imagine! You are FORTUNATE! You are HEALTHY! You are WHOLE!

It is the belief that you are none of these things that can lead to physical manifestations and illnesses. It is the belief that you are not enough, your daily habits, the people that you surround yourself by, the thoughts and feelings you have, your perception of your experiences, you not feeling ALL of your emotions, including grief, all this can lead to ailments.

The one relationship that must be solid in order for you to be healthy mentally, emotionally and physically is the one with yourself. Always make sure to be connected with yourself. How do you do that? You do that by being aware of how you feel. Be aware of what you feel drawn to do or see. Be aware of how things make you feel. Be aware of what your soul asks you to do. Then honor your soul. Whatever makes you feel down, know that you feel that way for a reason and that reason is that whatever it is that makes you feel that way is not a match to who you really are.

Anything that you feel do not ignore. Don’t make objects more important than your health. Do things every single day that makes you happy. Honor your soul by making it happy. You go first because unless you make yourself happy, you can’t make anyone else happy. You are constantly receiving guidance; don’t ignore it. Learn to trust it. It is the trusting that will lead you to a great life.

Connect yourself to your body. Pay attention to the way it feels. You are a soul living a human experience. Your body is the vessel that your soul chose to reside in. Your body is sending you feedback from your soul as well. Pay attention to that. Honor it. Once again, learn to trust the message your body is giving you.

I hope this post encourages you to start trusting yourself and to connect to yourself every single day. Remember that you are NOT the labels that society may place on you. Choose your own labels. Your labels should be “I am HEALTHY”, “I am LOVE”, “I am SMART”, “I am ENOUGH”, “I am GUIDED”. You are always guided. Believe that. Know that you are never alone. These are the labels that will add great well-being to your life and help you connect with yourself.

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.

Why a Healthy Dose of Selfishness Is Necessary?

Ahhhh selfishness. We were taught at a young age not to be selfish. It seems nowadays that we are taking this selfishness way out of hand to the point that it is being taken to the extreme where some don’t take at all in consideration other people. Since when has selfishness been taken out of context?!

The truth is that for your well-being, a healthy dose of selfishness is necessary. I dare to say it is not only necessary for you but for others as well. If you don’t take care of yourself first, you can’t take care of others. Flight Attendants show passengers on their safety demo that in case of a decompression, don your oxygen mask FIRST before helping others. Notice how I capitalized the word first. This is to put emphasis on how you need to help yourself first. This is because unless you help yourself first, you can’t help others.

The kind of selfishness that I am referring to here is not the kind where it is all about you and only you. It is not the one where you don’t care at all about others. It is not the one where you disregard others completely. This is NOT to be taken to the extreme.

The healthy dose of selfishness that I am referring to here is the one where you take your emotions into consideration. You don’t do things that don’t feel right to you just to make others feel good. A healthy dose of selfishness takes your mental state into consideration. For instance, a situation that drives you insane, no matter how much you love the person or how much you want to be there for them, for your own good, you minimize your energy and time in the situation because you want to preserve your mental sanity. A healthy dose of selfishness takes into consideration your physical state. Anything that jeopardizes your physical state you avoid no matter what, or at least try to minimize whatever it is that jeopardizes your physical state.

We are taught to give, give, give but constant giving without receiving will wear you out so quickly. Not only that, you will be giving not from a place of love but from a place of obligation and this only leads to feelings of resentment and anger. In order to sincerely give, you must receive. And the first person you must receive from is you. You need you. You need you always!

If you don’t take care of your own basic needs, if you are not selfish enough to make sure your cup is more than full, as a matter of fact, it should be overflowing. That way you can give from the overflow. In this way you will not feel depleted energetically.

A healthy dose of selfishness is an act of love from yourself. It is also an act of love for others. Think about this, when you feel good, don’t you only want to give good to others? When you are well taken care of, don’t you then feel better about taking care of others? When you are so in love, don’t you then see everything with eyes of love?

To get to this state, you need to do you. When you have a healthy dose of selfishness, this is exactly what you are giving yourself- the love, attention and care that you deserve. A healthy dose of selfishness will make your inner self feel taken care of, so you won’t feel any abandonment issues, no neglect, no resentment, no anger.

So if you have been neglecting yourself in any way, if you have been only taking care of others without you giving yourself the time to take care of you, I would like to invite you to have a healthy dose of selfishness. Start now taking care of your needs. Start now to listen to yourself. Start now to have this act of love for yourself. You deserve it.

Comparisons Hurt You

In today’s post, I would like to encourage you not to do comparisons- don’t compare yourself to others nor compare yourself to who you were a few years ago- and will explain why.

First off, everyone’s journey is unique. We all are different and we came here for different reasons and with different things to contribute to this world. Because of this beauty of all of us being unique, it kills our well-being to be comparing ourselves to others.

Comparing yourself to others is like driving and rather than looking ahead, you are looking to the side out the window for a really long time. What happens if you drive this way? You’re going to crash and hurt yourself badly. God forbid the crash can even be deadly. Well, same thing can happen when you constantly compare yourself to others and rather than looking at your own journey, you are looking at what someone else is doing, how they are succeeding, etc. You miss all the goodness there is to your life and you can crash and hurt yourself badly because you are not looking ahead.

Comparing yourself to others is very distracting. It distracts you by fooling you into thinking that you are not where you are supposed to be. It distracts you from looking at all the lessons that you have to learn from your own experiences. It distracts you from seeing your own beauty, your own uniqueness, and it distracts you from what the universe has for you.

Comparing yourself to others can block you. It blocks your own flow which is unique to only you. How so? Well, if you are seeing how well someone else is doing and you would like something similar for yourself, perhaps you are meant for something similar but not in the same manner that they went about it. If you are looking at how others do things, you may be fooled into thinking that you must do things exactly the way they do it in order for you to experience something similar. What if things are supposed to turn out even better for you? What if there is a different, more fun way that aligns to how your true essence is? You won’t know any of this if you keep comparing yourself to others.

You can’t even compare yourself to where or how you were a few years ago. This can be very bad if you are not aware of this. My dad passed away, this year it will be three years ago since he passed away. During these past two years, I gained some weight. For a minute, I was being hard on myself for allowing myself to gain the weight because I worked so hard for so long to have the body that I had. That’s when I needed to stop myself from comparing myself to who I was even 4 years ago. Things back then was different and I needed to understand that I was now in a grieving moment; in a moment where I had to deal with several emotions and changes that if that is not dealt with properly, then it will manifest itself in other ways, in my case, it was weight gain.

Because I stopped comparing myself to the old me, I am happy to share that I have been able to pick up from where I was before and I have been losing weight. But this time it’s different because I truly am appreciating this journey and dealing more with my emotions of losing my dad. This is why comparisons can be so harmful because as human beings, we are always evolving and it’s important to take notice of that and accept it.

If you have been finding yourself in that trap of comparing yourself to others or even to who you once were, I would like to invite you, for the sake of your own well-being, to stop that at once. Know that you are beautifully and wonderfully made. You don’t have to compare yourself to anyone. The reality is that there is no comparison. There is none. You are you and there is no one like you.

I also 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.

You Need Mostly of Yourself

As human beings, we naturally have a need to feel needed and loved by others. That is totally normal, however, despite the fact of you needing others, the person that you need the most is yourself.

You need mostly of yourself because it is you who provide yourself with your own love. It is you who truly know the kind of love that you need. It is you who set the standard for the way others treat you. It is you who allow things into your life. It is you who let others know that they need to respect you.

The reality is that everything comes from within you, not outside of you. When you can realize this, you will see and know that the love that you truly need is within you. Yes, we need others. Yes, others do play a role in our life. Yes, the love of others is very important but even more so is the love that you have for yourself.

Don’t believe that this is true? Well, just see for yourself how you can tell someone so many times that they are wonderful or beautiful or handsome but if they themselves don’t believe it, your words won’t matter. That’s because the words that matter most are our own words. The thoughts that matter most are our own thoughts. The judgment that matters most is our own judgment. You are indeed the center of YOUR universe.

How can you reach within you for that love that you need? What can you do in order to get what you need from yourself? How can you even get yourself to believe that this is even true? The best way is to do an assessment of your life. Where are you at the moment? Why do you think you are in this place at the moment? What contributed to you being where you are now in life? If you do a deep analysis, you will notice that you are in the middle of it all. That’s because you are the one in control of your own life. You are the one with all the power in your life.

I know how challenging this can be and this is why I created a FREE course so that you can learn how to find your own happiness and have that well-being that you are striving for called The Path to Your Nirvana™. You can sign up for this FREE course by clicking https://bit.ly/2QbBZW4 and putting in your name and email and choosing which language you would like the freebie. This is about you getting clarity as to what to do in order for you to start experiencing your nirvana, uncover what stops you from living your nirvana and how to move past that; develop an awareness of how you are currently living and how that may be contradicting how your true essence wants you to live. I chose the word nirvana because it means the ideal place to be and perfect happiness. This is about teaching you how to get to your ideal place in life where you can experience perfect happiness. Perfect happiness is possible in the sense that there is perfection in the imperfection.

So with today’s post, I would like to encourage you to realize that you need mostly from yourself. You are the most important person in your life. You are the center of your universe. You need mostly of your love in order to move forward in life. Remember that you need mostly of yourself.

Is It Possible to Still Be Unhappy Although One Has Everything to Be Happy?

What makes me write this post is the fact that still my most read post is the one about why good people get the short end of the stick which if you read it,  you will learn that it’s not that good people get the short end of the stick, it’s their view of the situation that makes them feel that way.

So to answer this question, is it possible to still be unhappy although one has everything to be happy and the answer is “yes” and I will state why. This is because there is something that is specific to you that makes you feel empty. I think there can be many reasons as to why someone can feel unhappy despite all they have. Some may even argue that one doesn’t have any right to be unhappy if they have everything. I beg to differ and this is because everyone’s emotions are to be respected and it is that person’s responsibility to evaluate what they are feeling so that they can understand what their soul is trying to say to them.

When feeling unhappy despite having “everything”, I would like to encourage you to do your best to understand what your soul is trying to tell you. That emotion is not coming out of nowhere and that is not something for you to ignore. Ask yourself, “what would make me happy right now?” “What do I feel is missing in my life?” Do your best to get to the understanding of where this emotion is coming from.

It is not everything nor having everything material wise that makes us happy. Those things can make us happy to a certain degree. They can satisfy a certain dream or goal we have but they are not what ultimately make us happy.

One thing I must mention in this blog post is this- please be aware that holding on to a dream that includes someone else or something else can make us very unhappy. It can make us stuck, angry, resentful and all those negative things that none of us have any business feeling. Also, holding on to things that have ended can also make us terribly unhappy.

Pay attention to what it is that you are focusing on, the people that you are surrounding yourself with, your thoughts, etc. since there are many things that can cloud us from seeing all the goodness in our life. Everything matters when it comes to happiness. What are the relationships that you allow in your life? How do you feel about where you are in life? What are the things that you feel are lacking in your life?

These are just questions to get you thinking if you find yourself right now feeling unhappy despite having so much to be happy. With this post, the purpose is to bring to light the things that bring you down, bring to your consciousness what it is that is not right that you can change.

So with this blog post, I would like to encourage you to start thinking about the things that bring you down despite all that you have to be happy and start thinking what you will do to change that. The feelings you have are not for no reason. There is a purpose to what you are feeling, it’s just a matter of understanding your emotions so you can make the changes necessary for your life.

How You May Unknowingly Be Stepping Away From Your Power

Sometimes we do things we don’t realize that hurt us. We all want happiness, there is no denying of that but we sometimes unknowingly make ourselves unhappy. Being unhappy takes away from your well-being. Part of happiness is knowing and stepping into your power and it is because of this that I would like to write about how you may unknowingly be stepping away from your power.

You unknowingly step away from your power when you hold on to things, situations, people, relationships, etc. that don’t serve you or don’t make you happy. I know how hard it can be to let go, trust me I do. I have held on to people and situations for way too long that didn’t serve me at all. If anything, holding on to those people and situations were just a waste of my time and it made me feel worse and worse with time. So do yourself a favor and let go NOW of the things that no longer serve you. It is important to trust that things are still working out for your favor no matter what.

You unknowingly step away from your power when you are not honest with yourself. I believe I wrote a post on the importance of being honest with yourself even if it hurts. Being honest liberates you. It’s best to feel bad now for a little bit than feel really bad down the road because you were not honest with yourself. Honesty can be one of the hardest things to do but it is a must if you are to grow in well-being. It will liberate you from things and situations you don’t need in your life.

You unknowingly step away from your power when you are not grateful for what you have at this very moment. I don’t know how to describe it but there is something so soothing about thanking God, the universe, whatever you believe in, for all that you currently have. There is emotional and mental power in you being grateful for all you have right now. It brings joy, it brings peace and you will feel loved when you live in gratitude.

You unknowingly step away from your power when you focus on the things that go wrong instead of all the things that are right with your life. Your focus is everything. Your focus determines your energy, your perspective, your emotions, your current physical state since mind influences the way the body will be, etc. Focus on what’s right and more right things will come to you. If this doesn’t come easy, just take baby steps. Catch yourself when you focus on the negative things and change it to positive things.

You unknowingly step away from your power when your self-talk is negative. It’s important to learn to be your own cheerleader. Not all the time will those who usually cheer you up be there when you need them. This is why you need to learn to be your own cheerleader and you do this through your self-talk. If your vocabulary consists of negative words and phrases, this needs to be changed if you are to change your life. Be mindful of the words you use and be mindful of the energy behind those words. The energy, too, matters a lot.

This post would be very long if I were to list more ways that you may unknowingly step away from your power but pay attention to one key indicator that doesn’t lie and it is your emotions. If your emotions are negative emotions, pay attention to how you may have unknowingly stepped away from your power. Your emotions don’t lie. Start now to step into your power. Doing this will add greatly to your well-being.
