How To Discover Your “Why”

How To Discover Your “Why”

By following these five steps you would get a clearer understanding of the meaning behind your goals; you would know if the means of the goals is the same as the ending result you think you are after; and you would be more equipped to take a directed and an aligned action.


By following these steps, you will find your WHY 

The paradigm of any substantial change and life-transition is to discover the why underneath the WHY of your decision.

In order to achieve clarity and solidify your motivation follow the steps below and write them down in your journal.



1️⃣ My decision to… (fill in the blank)
2️⃣ By making this transition, I am looking to achieve…
3️⃣ I would like to feel more… in my life
4️⃣ This is important to me because….
5️⃣ If I don’t make this change now, what will my life be like for me six months from now?


Please answer thoroughly these questions and keep addressing them as time goes by (on a daily basis) to keep yourself accountable that you are following what’s the true meaning behind your goal.

For example: people often say they want to lose weight, when they actually want to feel better in their skin and to be more confident; people often chase the goal of making an x amount of money when in fact they actually want a fulfilling career and more freedom to travel and do their hobbies; people often fixate on finding a partner when, very commonly, they want to feel the love they are not giving to themselves, etc.

Please remember that you don’t need to have all pieces of the puzzle sorted out in order to enjoy the process of resolving the riddle.
We don’t have to be in a place “z” in order to enjoy not being there yet.
We don’t have to know all of the answers in order to enjoy receiving them with an open mind and a clear from sabotaging fears and worries heart.


What we all need is to untangle the core purpose of our intention and chase not the goal itself but the why underneath the why.



Learn How To Manifest Anything You Want: In 3 KEY steps

Learn How To Manifest Anything You Want: In 3 KEY steps

Reality is bendable to our intention

Thoughts are reactive to our mindset

Our mindset is prone to adaptation to our intention


To manifest anything you desire, you need three fundamental tools: vision, intention and a precise goal.


Before we begin, let’s go over a few facts about our brain:

  • The conscious brain perceives the past and future. The nonconscious brain has no perception of past or future; to the nonconscious brain, everything is happening NOW.
  • The conscious brain operates with a very short-term memory span, whereas the non-conscious brain remembers everything it experiences FOREVER.

VISION

As writer and researcher Dawson Church says in his book Mind To Matter:  “The way we direct our awareness produces profound and immediate changes in the atoms and molecules of our bodies.”

The way you shift your consciousness predicates how you view your reality. Correspondingly, when you create the mental vision for what is it you want and need: your sub-conscious mind begins to align with that thought. 

As Albert Einstein is said to have noted, “Reality is an illusion, albeit a persistent one.” What that means is that for your sub-conscious mind anything you think becomes your belief system; ergo, your beliefs literally shape your consciousness. As a result, you indirectly influence your external world to match your internal emotional state of being. Isn’t it so fascinating how powerful our thoughts are? For me, it is absolutely mind-blowing (pun intended!:))

In the same manner, when you think negative thoughts and experience frequent self-doubt and feelings of undeserving of happiness, you emulate those emotions to the world. As a result, the likelihood is that you are going to pass on on an opportunity to be happy and fulfilled only because your subconscious mind is too worried that you are not capable of coping with success. Quite ironic, isn’t it, but it is how our brain works.  

Once you become adamant and persistent in reaffirming to yourself that you are worthy, willing and capable to create the life of your dreams, your critter brain (responsible for the flight-or-fight response) starts to loosen up and allow your consciousness to believe the thoughts you are sending out to the world through your body language and self-talk.  

Intention

”Intention triggers transformation of energy and information. Intention organizes its own fulfillment.”Deepak Chopra

Productivity is a result of our inner belief system about what matters most. It is what we do with all of those resources: let them spill and turn into nothing, or use them to chase our goals. Once you have the intention to go from point “A” to “Z,” you start to prime your brain that change is not as scary as it seems; intention is the action-map that backs up your vision with a strategic neural linking (I recommend you to continue reading more in this article).

In other words, instead of just day-dreaming about the thing you desire, you start to make a daily action towards it. Eventually, your subconscious mind begins to notice that you are doing the effort to show up for your goals, and you gradually create new neural pathways that match your intention.  Even the smallest step counts! It may take you longer but it is still moving you forward.:). Patience is key when it comes to reaping the seeds you are implanting in your sub-conscious mind.

Goal

Not just a goal, but a goal that is describable. If your goal refers only to a specific noun that is void of meaning (“success,” “money”, “new relationship,” “new career opportunity”), you are literally shooting in the dark when it comes to the law of metaphysics. You need to know very well WHY you want your goal and how , attaining it, will make you feel. When it comes to money, for example, we rarely want money per se. Yes, we need money to pay bills and contribute to the economy, but when we ask for more of it,  we usually mean we want more freedom, more fulfillment, and more security. 

Before you start manifesting, make sure you are really aware of the difference between `wants` and `needs` and ask yourself whether what you want and need results from the same source. If you think you need a job X t, but you actually want to be a freelancer, then manifesting this job doesn’t align with your emotions. So, most likely you won’t get it, or even if you get it, it won’t make you happy, whole and complete. That example applies to every situation. 


To Recap:

The formula for successful manifestation consists of:

1) Having the vision of what you want. 2) Setting the intention to back up your vision with daily action. 3) Focusing your intention towards a goal that is meaningful to your heart, and not just your brain.

Morning Routine Hacks

Morning Routine Hacks

1200-6

Getting up and moving on with our day is simple.  Waking up with constant excitement for life is a bit more complex…Because it requires a daily routine and a commitment

In a matter of fact, any morning routine should begin the night before.

Pre-Morning Routine Tip: Visualize Your Goals The Night Before

Setting the intention for your goals for the next day, prior to falling asleep, primes your brain to get them started once when you wake-up. Works like magic! While you sleep the delta waves of your brain automatically rewind your subconscious mind to your most recent experiences. Chances are you would wake up much happier when you go to bed in a positive mood.

1.  Hydrate First Before Caffeine

Hydration not only stimulates our body to wake up in a natural way but, metaphorically, also cleanses our mind and purifies our thoughts.

In addition, drinking a cup of boiled hot water with lemon juice -before coffee (or other beverages)- not only aids our digestion but stimulates our hormones to prepare us for an awaken and energetic state of being. That way, we are not dependent on caffeine to get us through the day and we are not compromising our adrenals.

2. Enhance Your Coffee And Brain Function With MCT Oil

But for those of us who do drink coffee…Try using MCT Oil!  Adding just the right amount of fatty acids to your coffee balances your sugar levels, speeds up your metabolism, and improves your brain function.


Also make sure to feed your brain with the right nutrition.

If you are more adventerous, add a dash of cinnamon and cayenne pepper.

Cinnamon has proven benefits in balancing insulin as well, and the capsaicin ingredient in cayenne pepper aids blood circulation and speeds digestion.

I mix all of the ingredients together in my small blender and sip on the concoction as I am answering e-mails.

3. If You Are Not A Morning Eater, Try Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is a way of eating many of us practice, naturally. Essentially, it means prolonging your first meal and allowing your body to spend between twelve and fourteen (*for males, it can go up to sixteen-eighteen) hours in a fasted state where no food is consumed and the body is given a necessary break. Accordingly, we are using this energy to work on our projects with more focus and stamina.

Also, if you implement my previous tip for enhanced performance, you may find that adding MCT to your morning coffee blurs your hunger and you actually have more energy. Even though MCT contains calories, it doesn’t trigger an Insulin response which, biochemically, means your body is kept in a “fasted” state.

4. Move Your Body

No coffee or intermittent fasting routine can be as energizing as if compared to exercise. So, so important to move our bodies and set our day right!

If your schedule only allows you to exercise later in the day, of course, plan your day around that.

But if you can do it after you wake up, try implementing an invigorating movement that energizes every cell and muscle in your body: jogging in place,  jumping jacks; planks, vinyasa yoga, active stretching, squats, going for a brisk walk…dancing to your favorite song!

Remember that even 10 minutes is A LOT more than nothing at all.

Nevertheless, regardless when you do it and for how long, please move your body more during the day. Get up every hour and stretch and use your feet more than you use your car/public transportation.

We compromise our spines  A LOT with the amount of sitting we do on a daily basis and it is highly important – for our health – to live our life in a flexible and stress-free body.

Connect To Your Heart With Meditation

Connect To Your Heart With Meditation

Our heart contains the memory of every moment of triumph, defeat, happiness, shame, sorrow, courage and anger we have experienced in our lifetime.

On a biochemical level, our heart literally tries to protects us from experiencing a situation resembling old trauma or negative experience by shutting down. Thanks to the so-called messenger molecules, our brain translates every emotion into a chemical equivalent that we feel in our whole body (liver, kidneys, intensities) but mostly in our heart.

For example, it is very common that people become closed off for new romance shortly after a break-up because the heart acts as a guardian and tries to keep us at bay from falling again for an emotion that may hurt us. In this case, it is very important to be very mindful of your past and mindfully and continuously attest to your heart that is safe for you to be loved, respected and heard. In order to practice this conscious attainment to your heart health, you need to spend the time to retrace the earliest memory you can remember of you being hurt or neglected as a child (or a young adult) and send healing thoughts to that experience. Now lovingly reassure your heart it is safe for you to let go of past pains.

That equation applies to every other situation and relationship. It might be a colleague/your boss/a family member/an estranged friend. Very often we attract people that resemble a behavior we are trying to escape from. Perhaps your boss is disrespecting you, or your colleague is talking down on you; or your family members are not supporting your lifestyle choices?

Whatever that might be it is always a reflection on your view the world and yourself. Whatever we project is mirrored in the external environment and the way people treat and perceive us. And it all begins in your heart. If your heart is attuned to vibration of unconditional love and compassion you will begin to emanate this to everyone you meet and they will subconsciously start to mirror your vibration of self-respect, mindfulness, and kindness. The most efficient way to be more attuned to your heart is through movement therapy and meditation.

I created a clip for you with instructions you may follow to start your meditation practice.

    • Begin by visualizing your heart shining brightly surrounded by light
    • Place your hands a few inches in front of it without relaxing them on your chest. The heart has a very high magnetic frequency and you might even feel your hands warming up. Imagine a golden thread connected between your heart, hands, and temples
    • Align your thoughts to match the vibration of peace and surrender. Then stay in stillness and let go of any thoughts. Just feel your heart, and listen. Ask your heart what does it need and why does it want? What is it afraid of and is it ready to let go?
