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.

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.

It’s Important to Laugh at Yourself

I shared this message on the Facebook page, @AuraEMartinezCoach, but I will share it here as well since I think it is a very important message to share.

I would first like to share that Monday, March 4th I went to Cancun, Mexico for a personal development and training event because I truly believe that in order for me to be able to offer the best to you, I have to treat myself with the best and be coached and mentored. The day that I arrived, I was so sleepy since I was already jet lagged. On top of that, I woke up very early for that flight so I hardly slept that night.

Going straight to the chase, I was so out of it that day that when I arrived, I thought I left my room key on the bench that’s in front of the restaurant where I ate that day. It wasn’t until the waiter asked me my room number that I realized, looking in my purse, that I didn’t have the key. So the waiter checked the bench, it wasn’t there. She checked inside the menu the key wasn’t there. At that point I was a bit freaked out at the thought that someone else took the key because I was convinced I had left it on the bench. So I asked the waiter to put the food on hold, which I already ordered, and went to the reception desk to change rooms. That’s when I was given another key to activate the new one and deactivate the old one. When I got to the room because I wanted to activate the new key, the old key that I thought I left on the bench was in the bathroom.

Then for dinner, I went out with my business bestie and when it came time to pay, yes I had pesos but my mind just couldn’t do any conversion anything or anything foreign, again, I was so out of it. So for some reason I didn’t see the 500 pesos bills, I thought they were 100 pesos, didn’t see the 5. The waiter thanked me so much and she was so kind to let me know that she couldn’t accept the tip because it was too high of a tip. That’s when I realized that I had given a $100 dollars tip basically. Yeah, I know!

Theeeennnn, when I arrived to my room, I had all my mini liquids in a Ziploc bag and in it was a clear nail polish. So the bag just slipped out of my hand, fell on the floor and the nail polish broke. So there was clear nail polish all over the little bottles inside the Ziploc bag and the french manicure that I had done got all smeared because of the clear nail polish. There goes my french manicure! And to top it off, I went downstairs in the hotel to the spa place to see if they sell clear nail polish. Well, they had every other color EXCEPT the clear nail polish, of course. At this point at the spa I’m trying on colors that may be close to a clear nail polish and I found one and tried to put some on and as I was doing that, the lady at the spa was like “You can’t do that ma’am because that is for the spa”.

Looking back it was such a comical day. I just laughed the whole day at the whole situation because even though I was in that situation, it was still funny. So the message I want to share with you is that it’s important to learn how to laugh at yourself.

It’s important because life is also about you making a fool out of yourself. It’s about hiccups. It’s about things not going perfect. It’s about disappointments. When you expect things to go exactly how you want them to go, things will go south pretty fast because you will feel that life is not meeting your expectations. Instead, choose to believe and remember that life is ALWAYS meeting your expectations no matter what. Choose to forgive yourself for your mistakes or things not going right. Choose to laugh whenever you make a fool out of yourself. Choose to know that it is ok if you don’t know this or that. And if someone says something stupid, laugh. What other people say is NONE of your business. What other people think is NONE of your business.

The faster you can laugh at all the things that go wrong in your life, the better you will feel about things and things rather than go down, they will start going up. Know that you have a choice in your thoughts and beliefs. Just like I mentioned on my social media, what are you choosing to think and feel today? That matters.

Now I have to mention that if you find that it is a challenge to laugh at yourself when things don’t go right, then there is something else going on that you may not be aware. I can’t emphasize enough how beneficial the FREE course, The Path to Your Nirvana™, will be for you in order to uncover what is stopping you from your unique happiness. It will help you uncover blocks that perhaps you are not aware that you have. All you have to do is click on the link https://bit.ly/2QbBZW4, put your name, email address and choose which language you prefer.

So, I would like to encourage you to learn to laugh at yourself when things don’t go right, when you mess up, when you act funny, etc. This will add tremendously to your well-being in ways that you just can’t imagine.

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.

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.

From What Lens Are You Looking At Things?

As I was walking down the block, a thought crossed my mind. The thought of how indeed we all have different lenses that determine how we view things and how we feel about things which affects the way we react to things.

In case you are wondering what do I mean with lens, I mean your perspective- the way you decide to view your world, the things around you and what happens in life.

If you find yourself constantly struggling, or at least it feels this way; if you constantly find yourself feeling frustrated; if you feel anger that you may not understand where it is coming from, I would like to invite you to ask yourself, from what lens are you looking at things?

The way we view things shape our world. We view things the way we do based on our conditioning and we may not even be aware of its existence. Our experiences shape our conditioning. How we were raised shapes our conditioning. The opportunities we have had in life or lack of shape our conditioning. What we saw growing up shapes our conditioning. The list goes on and on in terms of what shapes our conditioning.

It is once you are able to bring to light those conditionings that you will know what lens you use and you are then able to change your life, if you find yourself not happy with your life at the moment. It is sometimes the lens with which we decide to look at things that doesn’t allow us to be happy.

If you find yourself in this situation, I highly recommend you sign up for the FREE course, The Path to Your Nirvana, where you will learn what is standing in the way of your path to your unique happiness. You just click on the link https://bit.ly/2QbBZW4, put your name, email and choose which language you prefer. I can’t stress enough how helpful this course will be for you once you follow the course and listen to the affirmation audio that is included as a bonus.

Know that the lens you are using is a choice. At any moment you can choose to change the lens you have to one that is favorable for you. You have more power than you think you have. But you first have to believe in this power.

Changing the lens you use requires you to have awareness of the lens you are currently using, why and where did the lens come from to begin with. Then, it takes making the conscious choice to change that lens on a daily basis. This may be easy for some people to do on their own, for others, they may need some assistance in being able to change the lens and I want to say that if this is the case for you, there is nothing wrong in seeking help when you need it.

Depending on the situation, you may need a therapist or a coach to assist you with that. Getting the help you need doesn’t make you weak at all, if anything, it is a sign of strength because it means you admit that you need help and are willing to do what it takes to get yourself to the next level.

So with today’s post, if you find yourself not happy with something or a situation, if you find yourself frustrated, I would like to invite you to ask yourself, from what lens are you look at things. Is this lens allowing you to see clearly? Are you seeing things blurry? Does it make you happy to see things from this perspective? These are all questions to consider which will allow you to determine if it’s time to change the lens you are currently using.

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.
