The Beliefs that Keep You from Manifesting the Life you Desire

The Beliefs that Keep You from Manifesting the Life you Desire

You are the creator of your life. 

This idea might sound to you like truly liberating or it might be terrifyingly triggering. 

How can I be the creator of all the things in my life that I do not desire at all?

How is then that I cannot manifest what I most deeply desire? 

I am not blaming you at all about your reality. Not at all. I am talking about how the Universe work in its creation process.  

Let me explain it to you.   

Your mind is divided in two parts: the conscious mind and the unconscious mind. 

Think of an iceberg.

The top of the iceberg (what you see) is your conscious mind. This is the part of yourself you know well. Your conscious thoughts. “I want to have a beautiful life” “I will thrive through menopause”. As for the iceberg example, this is a very small part of your mind.

Then there is the “huge” underwater part of the iceberg: your unconscious mind. This is your mind storage place. Everything is kept here: good and bad memories, traumas, stuck emotions, impressions from old experiences. We call them, in general, your “unconscious patterns”… Just because you are not conscious of them. 

 

And here is the main thing to understand:

 Your mind manifest directly

from the unconscious material. 

So, often, your conscious desires do not show up in your outer reality. What is manifesting is consequence of your childhood trauma, or your grandmother’s ancestral wounds or your parents scarcity consciousness, to say a few. 

Something I have observed frequently is that, even if you have done lots of inner work during your life, lots of these unconscious patterns resurface with perimenopause and menopause, especially those related to your feminine linage. Themes related to self-value, body issues, sexuality… It is definetely a time of purification and refinement. 

The good news is that

you can change your unconscious beliefs.

And that this is the perfect time to do it.

And not only for you.

When you heal your subconscious limiting patterns, you are healing your ancestral lineage, backwards and forward in time.

Our generation has the time, the opportunity and the resources to heal the wounded feminine. It is a privilege and it is a responsibility. And it is the way to a more fulfilled life. 

Because at the end…

everything is about what you believe. 

Now you have the choice.

Do you want to be a victim of your lineage wounds? Or do you choose to be your own healer? 

I think the answer is clear. 

As clear as my mission:

Serving  women in their transformational journey, especially through perimenopause and menopause, to reach their highest potential. 

It is my way to serve the feminine.

It is my way to serve myself.

And it is my way to serve you.

If you are feeling called to work with me, this are my offerings to live the feminine way. 

I am looking forward to connect with you more closely. Please, share your experience and feelings with me in Instagram

From Midlife Crisis to Midlife Thriving

From Midlife Crisis to Midlife Thriving

Do you feel like losing track of your inner life compass? 

Do you feel disconnected from your life mission? With no energy or enthusiasm any more? 

Are you questioning your present life and have no clue about he next steps? 

Welcome to…

So many things happen in your body, in your mind and even in the stars, by the 40s and 50s that is difficult to cope with everything by yourself and without an instruction manual.

The first thing I want to tell you is that YOU ARE NOT ALONE; that confusion and crisis are part of life. This is the way you grow and transform. 

And that is beautiful.

As life is a journey…

Have you ever thought how would it be

to have a map? 

Life is a very individual experience but there are some common patterns. For example, we all share some astrological cycles that happen around our 40s and 50s, like the Uranus opposition at the beginning of the 40s or the Chiron return between the age of 46 and 52. I can tell you from experience that understanding how the energy of the stars challenges us and, at the same time, supports our growth can make a huge difference. 

Then there is the importance of mindset. This is huge. A lot of people become a victim of circumstances. I can feel you if you are there. 

Especially as you grow older, it is easy to feel a victim of the changes happening in your body and mind. However that becomes a path of suffering and disempowerment.

There is another option: becoming the heroin of your own story. It requires more energy at the beginning, to counteract inertia, but it takes you through a more powerful path in which you are the creator of your own story. A path in which you use the challenges to grow and transform into a new version of yourself. A better version of yourself.

I started this blog talking about some important transits like Uranus opposition or Chiron return. They mark key points for your evolution. And they do it by bringing mess and chaos into your life so you can leave behind your old self and transform into a new self.

Menopause and perimenopause show up like chaos in your body-mind. 

And, again, YOU choose wether you want to see the hormonal changes, the celestial transits, as something negative or as an exciting journey. 

You have a choice. 

The following exercise is inspired in one of my favourite quotes this year. I learnt if from my coach in a session.

Looking forward to hear from you in Instagram.

The #1 desire for most women after 40.

The #1 desire for most women after 40.

One of the effects of menopause and perimenopause and the stress that can place on your nervous and hormonal system is the lack of energy. 

Many of the symptoms that women report during perimenopause and menopause are somehow related to fatigue and tiredness. From being tired most of the time for no reason to having a foggy mind not able to concentrate or the lack of creative energy and libido, there is always the underlying reality of a loss of vitality.

Experiencing fatigue from time to time comes with the fact of being in a human body. This is part of life and you recover with rest. However, chronic fatigue does not disappear with rest and sleep. There is a constant drain of energy that impacts you physically, emotionally and psychologically. Many women experience this through perimenopause and menopause. 

That is the reason why

the #1 desire for most women in this phase of life is…

 

This are some of the reasons why vitality decreases during menopause and perimenopause:

  • Your metabolism slows down and so the energy production.
  • Your body is adapting to too many changes and needs the energy for that adaptation. 
  • Lack of rest and sleep due to hot flashes, night sweats and insomnia. 
  • Increase of cortisol and stress levels can keep your body in a higher energy consumption mode for no reason.
  • Decrease of testosterone brings about fatigue and low motivation.

Eastern traditions teach us that we are more than just a body. We are consciousness. And consciousness is pure energy. 

So how could we be depleted of energy if we are just energy? 

It does not make sense, right? 

From an energy body point of view, the problem is not so much energy depletion but energy channels getting obstructed to the free energy flow. 

These traditions, like Yoga and Taoism, have studied for millennia the energy body and created a wide array of practices to connect with the eternal fountain of energy existing inside every human being. 

In my course for women, Alchemy,  there is a great focus in energy practices to create a strong foundation for our body-mind. These practice flood your body mind with soma (a Sanskrit word for “nectar”). This soma supports us as a physical level but also at a mental and emotional level. 

From a more Western Science perspective, what they do is to regulate our hormonal system, so we get flooded by all the “good chemicals”, the hormones and neurotransmitters that we were talking about in the previous blog.

 

I want to share with your a practice that can change how you move through your day. 

Let´s do a very simple form of it.  

The goal is to activate an energetic orbit that already exist in your body, with the power of the inhalation and the exhalation. 

I get all kind of positive feedback from women practicing the micro-cosmic orbit, from an increase of energy or mood uplifting to helping with intense headaches or activating your sexual energy. 

The microcosmic orbit 

You can do this exercise standing or in a seated position, If you are standing separate the feet wider than the hips. 

Keep the eyes closed or open.

Root into the Earth with the exhalation and lengthen the spine with the inhalation. 

Softly activate the pelvic floor and keep this action throughout the practice. 

Visualize a ball of energy in the pelvic floor. 

  • INHALE and visualise the ball of light moving up through the back of the spine all the way to the crown of the head
  • EXHALE visualising the energy ball descending through the front of the body back to the pelvic floor. 

Keep on closing the energy circuit with the pulsation of the inhalation and the exhalation. 

You can do this for around 3 minutes every morning or whenever you need to boost your energy levels.

Are your emotions running the show?

Are your emotions running the show?

Could you imagine life without emotions? 

Of course not. 

Emotions are life’s spice. 

However, one of the complaints I get more often from women in their 40´s and 50´s is how difficult it is living through an emotional rollercoaster that many times seems out of control.

Of course, not every woman experiences it and there are many levels to it. But I would like to share with you several possible reasons for the emotional body to get out of whack during perimenopause and menopause. And some things we can do to soften the intensity and enjoy the ride. 

 

1. THE CHEMISTRY PIECE: HORMONES & NEUROTRANSMITTERS.

We can experience and understand our body/mind at many  different levels. One of them is the chemistry level. 

It is nothing new that chemical molecules, like hormones and neurotransmitters, determine our emotional state. And therefore, it is not surprising that all the hormonal changes that start taking place during perimenopause have an impact on our mood. 

 

Sexual hormones secretion drops in this phase of a woman’s life. Let’s see the effect of this decrease in the activity of neurotransmitters associated with how we feel.

 

  • Estrogen is related to the activity of serotonin (responsible for feelings of happiness) and dopamine (regulates pleasure, motivation and learning). Its decrease can be the reason for mood swings and feelings of sadness, apathy and even depression. 

  • Progesterone decrease is related to increasing anxiety. The effect is double. On one hand, the amount of GABA, a neurotransmitter with anti-anxiety effects, decreases. On the other hand, glutamate, a neurotransmitter that stimulates brain activity increases. High concentrations of glutamate are correlated with anxiety. 

  • Testosterone is a hormone responsible for our sense of well-being; it gives us confidence, energy and the ability to withstand stress. Since testosterone levels decline during menopause, this can explain some symptoms, including low confidence, motivation, fatigue and more vulnerability to stressing factors.

  • We should add, as I exposed in the previous blog, that cortisol increases as sexual hormones decrease. When stress hormones (like cortisol) increase, your body gets ready to fight or flight.  Your body will be more tense. You will be feeling survival mode emotions like anger, fear,.. And you will not be at all in the mood for emotional connection or intimacy.

2. NON DIGESTED PAST EXPERIENCES.

Every experience create an emotional imprint. 

 

Menopause is a pivotal time for women and it is very likely that experiences you have not fully processed make a reappearance at this time. 

 

Even if you have done extensive work on yourself, this is a very special time that brings to the surface what is there to cleanse, polish and refine so you can become the best version of yourself ever. This is the true gift of this sacred transition. 

 

And if you have not done work on yourself yet. No worries. It is never too late to start and this is a very auspicious time to do so. 

3. ASTROLOGY OF MIDDLE AGE. 

There are some important Astrological transits that happen around 40´s and 50´s that can deeply affect our emotional state. 

 

Transits are not inherently good or bad. Although they can be challenging at times, specially if you do not understand what is going on and why you are facing some particular external events or internal experiences. 

 

To have a sense of what is happening makes a difference as you can move along with the available energies and receive the gifts of deep transformation. 

I don’t want overwhelming you with all this information. All the contrary. Understanding what is happening gives you the tools to create a wonderful life during our 40´s and 50´s. 

Sharing all the tools and practices that we can use to release emotional pressure and even enjoy the ride, will require some time together. I want to give you some hints. They are mostly based in life style changes that promote the secretion of neurotransmitters for joy and well-being:

  • Moderate exercise and being in the sun are easy ways to increase serotonin and feeling happier. 
  • Yoga practice increases the anti-anxiety neurotransmitter called GABA.
  • Touch, massage, sex, being with other women… all this generated oxytocin “the bonding hormone” that counterbalance the damaging effects of an excess cortisol. 
  • Have a community of support that truly sees you and understand what you are going through. This is one of the most powerful medicines from women circles.
  • Diet has a lot to say when we talk about hormones and moods. Just one tip: reduce as much as possible the intake of sugar, alcohol and coffee.
  • Revelations from the stars… a great time to dive into the information your astral chart has specifically for you.

And, of course, if you feel overwhelmed ask for help. You do not have to move through this by yourself.

I hope you have enjoyed this information.

I leave you some links below that might interest you. 

And I will be really happy to receive your comments and sensations in  Instagram

Mercury retrograde. RE-evaluating.

Mercury retrograde. RE-evaluating.

On September 27th, Mercury entered retrograde.

Mercury rules our mental activity and this cause that, until October 18th when it will enter direct again, our mind turns 180 degrees to look inside.  As a consequence, we can feel the external world slowing down or.. that we slow down regarding the movement of the external world. Typically, it is considered a time of difficult communications, in which the advice is not closing deals, signing contracts or planning big trips. It is not surprising that the most important social media platforms collapsed during the algid moment of its retrogradation in Libra, the sign of personal relationships. 

In Esoteric Astrology, it is considered that Mercury retrograde has a more subtle and profound effect. The inner world is enriched by the effect of our gaze, of our awareness. Inside we find sensations, emotions, ideas, projects… that some time inhabited the most superficial areas of our mind but, for any reasons, they were not expressed.  They are like unattended children desperate for a caress. 

To this Mercury “backwards” journey  and to the presence of several planets in Libra, have joined in full synchrony, a challenge initiated in our essential oil community @esenciasdelatierra.yl by my friend @ireneantonymas with a very special and potent mixed of oils called RELEASE and the  Navaratri sadahana, the 9 nights of Goddess Durga, that started yesterday.

So, my journal is overwhelmed these days with all the revelations or forgotten emotions and cornered sensations that fight for seeing the light . Spontaneous awakenings during the day. Intense dreams during the night. Piecing things together. A feeling of finally leaving some repetitive themes behind.  

Another effect of Mercury retrograde is getting back projects left half way through,  ideas and intentions that were forgotten in the business of the inmediate. 

 

What was in your “New Year resolution” and got lost in the way?  

 

Where did you imagine yourself at this moment in life and where are you? 

 

Which is the missing piece of the puzzle to create the life you desire? 

This is a great moment to decide to get deeper into yourself. 

 Inside the apparent confusion and chaos of Mercury retrograde, a Universe of possibilities exist to  

re-evaluate

 

 re-set

 

re-start

And that is my mission.

To help you through my offerings

Both if you want to grow in a community or if you prefer to do a more individual process.

 

I am delighted in serving you.

INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS

Astrology is an amazing tool to know yourself, to accept yourself. 

I offer different types of sessions that will help you to know yourself better and to connect with your purpose. 

What makes these sessions something very special and effective is that we work accordingly to your personality, taking into account your individual and unique characteristics. 

KRAMA: from chaos into order

KRAMA: from chaos into order

Contemplating the energy that brings this new lunar cycle in Virgo, there is a word that is reverberating in my mind. 

KRAMA

Krama is a Sanskrit term that gets translated as order. Also as sequence. Something that is done step by step.

In Tantric texts, krama is the power that Consciousness uses to manifest from the apparent chaos into a relative order of the manifested Universe. 

Everything in the Universe happens in a sequence. From the development of a foetus in the uterus, to the blooming of a plant, the succession of day and night, to the protein synthesis inside your cells following, step by step, the instructions encoded in your DNA.

Krama is the process that, step by step, takes us from point A to point B, from the creative impulso to the completion of manifestation.

Every creative process mimics the manifestation oft he Universe described but the Tantrikas.  Think about the creation of a text. At first there is nothingness. Or, we could say, the undifferentiated totality. Suddenly flashes of concepts appear that become ideas and thoughts. These start to get entangled among them with certain coherence creating arguments that become, for example, this blog. 

It is interesting to appreciate how the rest of the infinite information/matter/energy (as you would like to call it) starts to dissolve as insignificant at that moment, in the same way the pieces of granite disappear  as the artist creates an sculpture. 

This is another Virgo trait: discernment that creates order and organisation, that gives priority to certain information over the rest, that decides what it stays and what it goes, that design the most effective sequence. 

Organisation, order, sequence, discernment.

Virgo energy is sometimes thought of as boring or uninteresting but nothing further from the truth. Look, for instance,  the beauty of a fractal.  A clear consequence of order and sequentiality.

It is really easy to take this concepts to the field of yoga through the meaning of sadhana.  

Sadhana is a sucesión and repetition of sequences that you practice day after day.  I am not thinking only in asana sequences but in the sacred sequence in any practice that you receive from a wisdom lineage, that has being designed in the best way possible to bring about a particular result.  

One of my teachers, Paul Muller-Ortega, says that  “Yoga is not about faith. It is all about practice. When you feel the results of the practice nobody needs to convince you of anything. You just know”  

Virgo is the energy of routine and repetition, of the mundane daily acts. Those that can be the most sacred actions.

Yes, I see this sign of the Zodiac, as a sing of the sacred. I will explain it through the meaning of something I love: ritual.

What is a ritual but a set of sequences of mundane actions orchestrated with precision that turn into sacred just for belonging to that particular sequence?  

All this energies and concepts are fundamental in my life and my teaching and there are always present in my courses.

  • 13 Lunas – 13 Mudras is our way to workship the dancing sequence of the Moon through the signs to synch with the available energy in the sky. 
  • The power of order and sequence are the foundation of my clases so they can be transformative and safe
  • In trainings I share techniques and resources to use discernment in the creation and teaching of clases to serve students fully (another important aspect of Virgo)  

In this lunar cycle I invite you to contemplate:  

  • ¿Qué secuencias son importantes en tu vida? 
  • ¿Cómo transformas lo mundano en ritual? 
  • ¿Cuál es el efecto de la repetición? ¿De la sadhana?
