The Law of Giving and Receiving

The Law of Giving and Receiving

Giving and Receiving With An Open Heart

As the year comes to an end and the Holiday season goes by, it is a great time to appreciate the gifts that we can give and receive from the heart. You might find yourself feeling stressed over the gifts that you have to give others: you don’t know what to get them if it will be enough, you are worried about how much money you need to spend, etc. 

It’s time to let go of the collective way of doing things and let your Soul lead the way! When we decide to open our hearts and choose to give and receive freely, we start saying no to materialism and yes to soulful appreciation and connection. What better time to practice than the Holidays?.

Our Yes Universe Is Always Giving and Receiving.

The world operates through a dynamic exchange, creating a constant flow of energy between ourselves and the Universe. This is why, when we give with an open heart, there is a natural reaction of receiving that happens.

The intelligence that runs the Universe honors your giving actions always and all ways. The more you give graciously and from the heart, the more you will receive, as you will keep the abundance of the Universe circulating in your life.

So knowing that your kindness will always be rewarded, why not practicing it more often?.

We live in a Yes Universe. The Universe says “yes” to what we say “yes” to. If you say “yes I have nothing” or “yes I am weak” then the Universe will say yes to these things, but if on the contrary, we say “Yes, I have everything I need” or “Yes, I am strong”, then this is what the Universe will give back to us!.

Give Graciously and Receive Gratefully.

 

Sometimes you might feel like you give but never receive anything back. This energy unbalance might be due to your ego getting in the process. A very important aspect of this universal law of giving and receiving is that it must be done willingly and from the heart, without expecting anything in return and always thanking the Universe for what we already have. Graciously and gratefully. 

The way to do things from the heart is letting go of your ego. As humans, we love to love, and acts of selfless giving offer the opportunity to feel this pure genuine way of being. Practice being genuine, soulful and loving!

A Less Materialistic Holiday Season: visioning exercise.

Sometimes we get wrapped up in an aspect of the holiday that is more materialistic based. I recorded a visioning session to help guide you through the Holiday season and experience the essence of giving and receiving in a way that is highly conscious, and highly spiritual. My goal for this visioning exercise is to make you feel the essence of your energy field and spirit being in tune with giving in a way that is unconditional and it is done from the heart:  Give and Receive from the Heart: Visioning Exercise.

What non-materialistic gifts could you give to your loved ones?

One of the most beautiful gifts is buying a journal for someone and write for ten, fifteen days, or as long as you wish, the reasons why you love them and appreciate them so much. Or maybe take that person for a walk on the beach and bring some food to share and enjoy some quality time together in the sun. Beautiful words, appreciation, and time are gorgeous and memorable gifts to give. 

*Three steps to start giving and receiving from the heart:

*From The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, by Deepak Chopra.

  1. Wherever I go, and whoever I encounter, I will bring them a gift. The gift may be a compliment, a flower, or a prayer. Today, I will give something to everyone I come into contact with, and so I will begin the process of circulating joy, wealth and affluence in my life and the lives of others. 

  1. Today I will gratefully receive all the gifts that life has to offer me. I will receive the gifts of nature: sunlight and the sound of birds singing, or spring showers or the first snow of winter. I will also be open to receiving from others, whether it be in the form of a material gift, money, a compliment, or a prayer.

  1. I will commit to keeping wealth circulating in my life by giving and receiving lives most precious gifts: the gifts of caring, affection, appreciation, and love. Each time I meet someone, I will silently wish them happiness, joy, and laughter. 

Say yes to giving graciously, receiving gratefully, and watch your life improve and change dramatically in a way that is heart-centered, loving, prosperous, and abundant. It’s magical, it’s real, and it is available to you!

The First Steps to Conscious Parenting

The First Steps to Conscious Parenting

Conscious Parenting: Rewarding yet challenging

Being a conscious parent is a wonderful and rewarding experience. You will learn a lot from it, and it will be challenging, but you will realize that even on the hardest times, at the end of the day being a parent is always worth it.

Children are human beings just like you and me, with their feelings, their needs, and their ups and downs, and it is your responsibility as a parent to be there for them when they need to be heard, loved, understood, or they just need to release their emotions.

Healing inner wounds

As humans we are expert imitators, and you will realize that not only your kids imitate your behavior, but you will find yourself imitating some old habits from your parents. Now, you might not have had an ideal upbringing, and you probably have some past childhood wounds and memories that begin to come out when you become a mother, or a father. This is the time to address these wounds and heal your inner child, as well as a great opportunity for growth and learning.

Being a conscious parent means being aware of what is happening within you and within your child, and taking action. Looking into your emotions and digging up your wounds is hard and takes time, but what better motivation than being the best parent possible for your kid?

Taking control of your own Emotions

 

The first step to conscious parenting is taking control of your own emotions. When you do, you have the ability to answer to your kid’s needs with love and an open mind, which will make them feel safe and loved.

On any given day, you will have plenty of opportunities to realize what triggers your anger and how you are responding to it. Being aware and paying attention to these reactions is a great place to start tuning in with your inner self. Listen to your heart, reflect on where your anger is coming from, and understand how those feelings are changing how you behave towards your kid, and what decisions you are making.

Go back to the situation and think “would I behave the same way if I was calm?”. This will make you aware of your own responses, and help you the next time a conflict arises.

Stop, Breathe, and Think

But being aware is not enough, you need to learn to press the stop button, breathe, and think before you release your anger on someone. If your kid is challenging you, maybe she or he is frustrated because something happened at school. As the parent and adult, is your responsibility to offer the support he or she needs: maybe a hug, talking, or being listened to. In order to offer this support, you need to learn to soften your voice even when you are angry, notice when you are overreacting, and take control of your own behavior is a key step in becoming a conscious parent.

Kids need unconditional love

Sometimes being a conscious parent also means asking for help when we cannot heal our past wounds. But if you are reading this, it means that you are already trying and that is the most important step! Being a parent will always keep challenging you, but remember that what our kids need the most is unconditional love, and someone who is there to listen and talk to them with an open heart.

The Art of Manifesting: 10 Steps to Create the Life You Want

The Art of Manifesting: 10 Steps to Create the Life You Want

Manifesting is an art available to all of us that will help you see your wishes fulfilled.

By practicing the art of manifesting, you will also learn some habits to lead a happier and healthier life, as well as living consciously and gratefully.

 

Remember that you can join me at my upcoming workshop in Montecito, California to learn more in-depth about the art of manifesting! For more information, click here.

 

Here are 10 steps to learn the art of manifesting

and create the life you want:

Step 1

Live in your Higher Self

In order to learn to manifest your own reality, you have to first change the perspective you have of yourself. You need to believe in your divine power, which is always available to you once you know how to access it.

From this new perspective of yourself, you are not a body but a soul. You are your higher self.

Step 2

Observe Your Self

Have you heard before that “we are what we think about”? This is one of the basic principles of manifestation.

Through your thoughts, your words, and your actions you build your own reality.

If you wish to manifest the life of your dreams, you need to monitor and align your thoughts and feelings with your dreams.

Step 3

Get rid of limiting beliefs

Things are not “just the way they are”.

You have the power to choose how you want to live your life, and change it accordingly. But first you need to believe that this is a possibility for you.

Everything that you have believed as possible has gotten you to where you are currently in your life. So keep yourself open to new possibilities and know that they are completely available for you.

Step 4

Imagine your wish already became true

Imagination is a powerful gift that will help you in the process of manifesting what your heart desires.

Practice seeing your wishes as already accomplished, imagine what it feels like and be thankful for having what you wanted (even if it’s just in your imagination!).

Aligning yourself with the feeling of your wishes fulfilled will help you believe this is your reality and get rid of limiting barriers and thoughts.

Step 5

Stay away from other people’s opinions

Don’t allow external influence to take you away from your intentions.

Your job is to believe and stay focused on your final goal.

Other people might discourage you with their words or bring negative energy into your life.

You need to stay independent from these outside circumstances and keep your attention on your desire and intention.

Step 6

Go from “I am not” to “I am”!

As it was mentioned above, our thoughts, words, and actions determine who we are. Through your inner dialogue, you have the power to change the concept you have of yourself.

Think of all the things that you consider lacking in your life, then accept that you created the life you have through your conditioning thoughts, actions, and beliefs.

Start practicing changing your language in your inner dialogue, from “I am not”, or “I wish I was” to “I am”.

Step 7

Believe in yourself

The process of becoming a manifester can be a difficult one.

Imagination plays a big role and you need to be patient and stay focused on your intentions and the image of having your wish fulfilled.

Believe fiercely that you have the divine power to make your dreams a reality, and banish all doubt from your mind.

Believe in yourself and trust that you will attract the energy that will provide you with what you want.

Step 8

Be grateful

This is not only a step in the Art of Manifesting but in life! Being grateful keeps you happy and aware of how great a life you already have.

Gratitude is a great exercise that will make you appreciate and enjoy everything in life, as well as create positive emotions that will help you in your journey to manifesting!

Step 9

Come from a place of love 💜

When you live from a place of love, you avoid attracting the ego into your life.

The ego is always looking to make you act based on your insecurities, fears, jealousy, or other negative feelings.

If you practice gratitude and see yourself as having already what you want, you will stay in a place of love, and convey this feeling to the world.

Step 10

Accept that you have enough

If you accept that you have enough and practice being grateful for the life you have, you will stop the needy energy and more of what you actually desire will come your way.

Manifesting consists in turning our thoughts into a materialized fact.

The art of manifesting is the art of staying truth to your higher self, believing in your divine power, and bringing your own reality into form.

 When you manifest, you become a conscious creator of your own life.
