In our job (Singing, Fitness) we have the luxury of sharing our passions – for how long given the current world situation, we don’t know, but that’s a different matter. I am one to do and make a living of that which excites me, otherwise what’s the point? Doing what you love is beneficial for all parties involved: for you, for the people you work for/with, and for the result of your work, as they will absorb your joy. And whether or not you are too technical or precise or a lot in the mind, what matters is the energy you project, the enthusiasm you have when you deliver your work. That ‘thing’ that those who come to you don’t seem to find within themselves and they are seeking.
“We just have sex but I don’t allow myself to have any feelings for him/her, just in case I get attached.” In our current society, this seems to be the daily bread. People seem to have lost touch with their inner selves, in more than one way. Let’s dedicate a few seconds of silence to this😞.
It’s not easy to have the willpower to follow a diet when one has an energetic footprint from other lives that conditions the current behaviours, preferences, orientations, lacks and blockages in the present body. Plus it’s not just our own individual life’s journey, but also our parental, social and environmental baggage that affects who we are and the shape of our body (including where we tend to store fat and water). So let us see how these stored pieces of energy can determine our predisposition to overeat, no matter how willing we are to change… we might always come back to the same patterns, if we don’t heal the root cause, i.e. the trauma.
This is, perhaps, an uncommon association of words, but that’s why I am here, to break your patterns 😉 It is my bias to enhance the importance of the unseen (our mind), as the place where everything else originates. As such, I’d like to say that as important as the consistency in our physical training, vocal exercises and nutrition, are also our hygiene habits and intentions that go along with them. For the composition of our body is not only nurtured with the nutrients and movement we give it, but also with the elements that penetrate it from the outside: the air, soaps/gels, make-up/fragrances, interaction with other human/non-human beings, electromagnetic radiation, sounds/noises, etc, and the will we impose upon our actions. All of these things are, of course, frequencies at different rates of vibration.
Even knowing lots of concepts, one never really has all the answers. Such is human nature.
I got inspired by one of my clients to write about this article, because her situation applies to many people. When I met her, she lived absorbing the sorrows and miseries of her clients. She put herself down to please others. She is extremely empathetic, compassionate, sweet… and she walked with her shoulders down, a rounded back, slouching, bending over to the point I almost had to bend my neck looking for her face to meet her eyes. She was very wobbly on her knee and elbow joints, almost as if her joints were saying ‘sorry for being myself’, apologizing and saying thank you for everything to everyone, putting everybody’s needs first before hers.
Our thoughts. Those caterpillars that come and go. Such power they have. Specially when they’re fueled by our emotions. Such is their strength that what we think shapes our reality and our belief system, and our body! The isolation of thought is one of the most difficult parts of the type of meditation that I’ve been doing for years (‘Initiation into Hermetics’ – Franz Bardon), but once that is managed, a new gate opens to the extraordinary world of magic. Real magic. As in, making things happen with the fruit of your mind work. Even, changing the shape of your body (it’s a process)
