Calm as Consciousness Skill is to be in that state of Inner peace consistently. This inner state in calmness it is the consequence of the type of thoughts that your mental body is managing. Calm is the result of a deep understanding of who we are and life itself.
These days we passed an immense Storm called Emma all over the country where I currently live in. In my house, we had an incident and it was no electricity almost for three days, in a place which depends 100% on electricity as the exclusive source of energy including heating. The news where uncertain telling us that electricity was coming back in a couple of hours, later on, another couple of hours… finally, it was closer than three days.
On the second night it was Friday “red alarm we could not go outside” I was in bed trying to preserve the warmth of my body. Then the Land Lord came with a light in hand he looked exhausted and said to me – I am so sorry Veronica, but they say the electric power is not coming back until tomorrow. I could hear the terrible sound of the storm outside coming through the main door that was open, “At that instant, I had that recurrent feeling of being In Dreams”.
At that point I had no heating, no food, no mobile connection and my period just came, it was like to be inside of a fridge literally. Then I went to bed, and I have to say that I was concerning for my health and my physical state, but at the same time I was Calm because I know nowadays that “Things always work out”.
Many Survival thoughts came into my Mind and I didn’t want to break down; So what I did it was deliberately to focus my attention into my Heart which is the higher brain, I started to feel my heart beating and I was repainting to myself “I am here for you unconditionally”, my Calm surprisingly was still being there.
I slept well because after 2 days I was exhausted to be dealing with the extreme cold. At the next morning I went downstairs to check if my neighbour was still being alive so she was, then I went to The Cafe, where I could charge my phone to contact my friends who they fed me and they took care of me.Thank you, I love you guys.
But that was not the end of the story many things happened later on but my surprise was that the Calmness was still being there and I could manage all the next events from my Inner peace and Calmness.
The real Calm is coming from the awareness and certainty that no matter how extreme conditions you are going through, that “The Universe conspires to help you if you Trust and you will be even wiser once the storm is gone”.
My inner state of Calm and Peace is my gift, that is here with the main purpose of assisting others in these intensive times of transformation and evolution for all of us.
Appreciation as a conscious tool is that capacity to show the other person that they mean to you that they are Important for you.
Let’s go for it, as children we create a personality, the self that it utilizes many mechanisms to feel the mean of appreciation that is what we all want to feel. Adults are still being the same but we become aware in this Journey that is all about to appreciate ourselves first of all. When we are falling into the trap of third-dimensional separation we project into someone our own beauty and we think that we have to do many things to get appreciation from them.
The Inner Child patterns are about action-reaction; the mind says- Ok, If I do this I get this reaction from mama, she is happy so we are learning self-appreciation from that action-reaction, we understand that is the way to give love and to feel appreciated by the other person. That pattern it can help us for many things in life, but the paradox is as we know life is an evolutionary process. Evolution it means change.
When our Being is asking for a significant change is that impulse of the evolution calling into action inside of us. We start to miss something, we don’t feel complete anymore from what we are creating outside. Normally we are afraid because the Higher Self is asking for a radical change actually that is what he likes, that is what he loves but our Character wants the opposite is trying for us to keep ourselves in the old pattern.
Many times we can become stuck in a situation because we are not feeling appreciation coming from someone that we care about but that feeling it can be created by the old concept that we used have about what is to be appreciated.
If we are growing thanks to this new situation the old pattern is not going to serve us anymore, we have to let to take place an inner revolution inside of us. We have to break our own chains. We have to try new ways that many times we are so scared of, but as they say- “No risk, No Gain”.
To grow up we need someone who confronts us, we need that situation that is telling us- “The old way is not going to work this time”, for us to realize that perhaps we have some inner work to do.
When we are stuck in a pattern we tend to think that we have to do weird things to be appreciated by others then we can become afraid of demonstrating what is really important for us. Because our Ego wants to feel special, wants to cause an impact and it complicates communication.
Many times, we don’t even know how to tell someone that we Appreciate them, just by saying- “You are so important to me, I am here for you, I am happy for you to be in my life”; Simplicity is the Highest expression of Love.
Recognition is the action or process to acknowledge something in particular. This Consciousness Skill is the capacity to express the others that we can admit our mistakes, our shadows in general.
To develop this Skill which is wonderful we have to create the time in our daily life to review our behaviour and the events from the perspective of Evolution and evaluate if we were doing our best or we could improve something by recognising those patterns.
Our society, in general, it condemned the mistake as something negative as a quality of the looser, therefore the majority of people is hiding their mistakes from others. The mistake is one of the principal ways that we have to evolve, which is the reason to be here on this planet- Don’t you think that is all the other way around?!- I made a lot of mistakes in this life, thank God! They were my greatest masters.
Because of one mechanism which domain the Ego Mind “The Authority Law”, we approach interactions playing the boss or playing the sheep roll. By wearing many masks as well with the objective of not being hurt, invalidated, or rejected. The result is Recognition is not at the surface precisely. Recognition is about to be Humble is about to be aware that we are learning all the time and is the product to have been done a previous Process of Shadow Integration that it continues.
We all want to feel connected that’s why if we associate to recognise some failure as not being good enough for the others the resulting tendency is to avoid recognising those weak points.
Here is the paradox the more you are able to recognise your shadows from self-love the more you can recognise other people talents because we are reducing the distance from failing to win.
To lose and to win there are both parts of the journey of life both are fundamental both are worthy. Observing from this Holistic Perspective, we are Transforming the Ego Mind into the Universal Mind.
Gentleness is all about how to express our sweetness as a wonderful way to show our beauty which improves tremendously the connection with our true nature.
Personally, it took me time to uncover and express my Gentleness. Many years ago I have been studying “The Enneagram” and I find it an amazing personality develop that methodology. If you don’t know about Enneagram, I invite you to do some research.
In the Enneagram, I am the full expression of the Number 8. Number 8, is the “The Leader” because of our capacity of guiding others, our determination, our strength, our powerful presence, our embodiment. But here is the thing, number 8 as a child it used to be very sensitive usually an empath. To become aware of what is the love we have to experience a certain amount of suffering.
Because of our sensibility, our questions, our high perception, the materialistic Egos around us used to feel threatened and probably they used to attack us invalidating our perceptions. At that point the Inner Child of the number 8 as a strategy start to develop a strong armour creating a character who expresses Power, Strength, Intellect, Structure, Determination, Challenge, Fight, we are the greatest expression of “The Warrior” archetype.
This powerful warrior doesn’t want to show the others the Gentle Sweet beautiful child who is always looking for affection and caring and who loves sensitivity. Because in that way he can be attacked and hurt. This child is “The warrior” because is looking to be loved, and in a violent environment the fight for that child is the common expression to survive and to be loved.
Number 8 to integrate and balance the personality has to show up his Gentleness and sweetness. The result is amazing because “The warrior” is still living within the number 8 but this time is going to be integrated with gentleness as that high sensitivity of the Empath, then it was born “The Wizard”.
Gentleness it helps us to create a real connection between our hearts and the beauty of Life; At the end of the day is all that we want as Essential Beings.
I feel so happy to be able to write about respect nowadays from experience and self-respect which is as we know the beginning to respect others.
When someone in pain or sick asks to me and that happens many times- What is the best Technique or Discipline for me to choose? What is the difference between those techniques? I always answer the same- That is not the most important, the most relevant in any practitioner actually is not about their techniques but is all about their level of Consciousness which is going to determine their perception to the level of respect towards their patients.
Let’s dive into it; From Consciousness we are all the same Source or energy, when we live from this Paradigm we perceive other people as Energy, as Consciousness, as a Soul not as limited individual body who can be sick or ill, but we totally understand that they really feel pain or they really believe that they are sick but anyways we still perceiving them as powerful beings just temporarily no remembering who they are and their power.
That perception of Divine in anyone is the greatest Respect we can give to others. In our practice thanks to that Awareness is because people initiate a real healing process.
At the same time for the Evolution, everything is perfect and everyone is going to attract the right clients for them. But I would remark if we perceive the patient as a sick person, what we are doing is reinforcing their wrong poor perception of their selves, we are not really giving respect. Respect is about to perceive, think, and behave towards others in the same way as we would do towards ourselves.
When we are living from Consciousness we become natural healers because just our level of respect is the highest and high frequencies of thoughts sweep away the lower ones this is “the entrainment effect”.
That person who came to visit us starts to feel clearer in the mind. Their level of self-respect is going to increase in a tremendous way because we are being their best respectful reflexion.
