How to embrace “The Hero’s Journey” in order to rebirth.

There are moments in life when we feel that we need to step out of something or someone that instead of nurturing our evolution towards a higher self, is dragging us back. Here is the thing, there is a gift we all have which is called discernment. We are energy and there is lots of scientific search and research that sustains it, you just have to navigate on the web in order to find it. So, I will not begin giving a class about that subject.

Being that said, when I took a course about Christ healing I learned about the existence of this precious gift we all have and I would like to share some of that.

Discernment works through our inner voice/intuition, awareness on this because sometimes our ego (representing our inner shadow struggles) https://wp.me/p7G3QF-qv, posted in mindfulness, yoga), begins to operate from our inner vulnerabilities to confuse us within a back and forth loop generating energy of self guilt and drama. That way this hold us back from letting go and move on towards a better version of ourselves finding a state of wellness anywhere else.

When you feel that something or someone brings to your life enlightenment, self-grow, self-love and even encourages any spiritual or religious practice that contributes to your resilience in a positive way; that… is an energy of high vibration which is closer to our “Higher Power” or “God”.

However, if it happens creating you disorientation, anxiety, guilt with self punishment orientation, constant isolation then is an energy that has roots from a low vibration which is obviously dragging you away from your “Higher Power” and source of inner and external love which as result ends up driving you into sorrow and unhappiness.

From my military background I learned about personal courage as an army value, that does not states there is absence of fear, instead teaches us to transmute that fear into a positive energy that will remind us to stay alert if engaged into combat during the darkness (looking forward to survive until dawn) by taking unfamiliar routes in order to succeed until the sun rises.

In summary do not be afraid to take an unfamiliar path. Sometimes they are the ones that take you to the best places. Allow yourself to embrace your inner Hero’s Journey.

Joseph Campbell developed a narratology to guide us into this journey, named “The Hero’s Journey” which is the common template of stories that involve a hero who goes on an adventure, is victorious in a decisive crisis and comes home changed or transformed.

Campbell who was influenced by Carl Jung’s analytical psychology, used the monomyth to deconstruct and compare religions. In his famous book The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949), he describes the narrative pattern as follows:

“A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.”

Below is an illustration of this template and a breakdown of the steps.

1. Ordinary World:

This is where our Hero’s exists before our present story begins, oblivious of the adventures to come. It’s our comfort zone. Our everyday life where we learn crucial details about our true nature, capabilities and outlook on life. This anchors our Hero as a human, just like you and me, and makes it easier for us to identify with him and hence later, empathize with his plight.

2. Call To Adventure

Our adventure begins when we receive a call to action, such as a direct threat to our safety, our family, our way of life or to the peace of the community in which we live. It may not be as dramatic as a gunshot, but simply a phone call or conversation but whatever the call is, and however it manifests itself, it ultimately disrupts the comfort of our Ordinary World and presents a challenge or quest that must be undertaken.

3. Refusal Of The Call

Although we may be eager to accept the quest, at this stage we will have fears that need overcoming. Second thoughts or even deep personal doubts as to whether or not our Hero is up to the challenge. When this happens, we will refuse the call and as a result may suffer somehow. The problem we face may seem to much to handle and the comfort of home far more attractive than the perilous road ahead. This would also be our own response and once again helps us bond further with our reluctant Hero.

4. Meeting The Mentor “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”

At this crucial turning point we desperately need guidance and in serendipity the Universe (God) bring us a mentor figure who gives us something we need. Therefore we could be given an object of great importance, insight into the dilemma we face, wise advice, practical training or even self-confidence. Whatever the mentor provides us with it serves to dispel our doubts and fears encouraging the strength and courage we need to begin our quest. This is when our fears begin to transmute into personal courage, as I mentioned during my introduction.

5. Crossing The Threshold (the doorway)

Our Hero is now ready to act upon the call to adventure and truly begin the quest, whether it be physical, spiritual or emotional. We may go willingly or may be pushed, but either way we finally cross the threshold between the comfort zone and the challenge we are not familiar with, but represents the light or fulfillment into this quest. It may be leaving home for the first time in our life or just doing something we have always been scared to do. However the threshold presents itself, this action signifies our commitment to this journey.

6. Tests, Allies, Enemies

Now finally out of our comfort zone our Hero is confronted with an ever more difficult series of challenges that test us in a variety of ways. Obstacles are thrown across our path; whether they be physical hurdles or people sabotaging our progress, our Hero must overcome each challenge is presented along the journey towards the ultimate goal.

We need to find out who can be trusted and who can’t. Our Hero may earn allies and meet enemies who will, each in their own way, help prepare us for the greater ordeals yet to come. They will become our teachers as well. This is the stage where our skills and/or powers are tested and every obstacle that we face helps us gain a deeper insight into our character and ultimately identify with our Hero even more.

7. Approach To The Inmost Cave

The inmost cave may represent many things in our story such as an actual location in which lies a terrible danger or an inner conflict which up until now we have not had to face. As our Hero approaches the cave (solitude) we must make final preparations before taking that final leap into the great unknown.

At the threshold to the inmost cave we may once again face some of the doubts and fears that first surfaced upon the call to adventure. This means that we may need some time to reflect upon our journey and the treacherous road ahead in order to find the courage to continue. This brief respite helps the people around us to understand the magnitude of the ordeal that awaits us and escalates the tension in anticipation of our ultimate test.

8. Ordeal

The Supreme Ordeal may be a dangerous physical test or a deep inner crisis that we must face in order to survive or for the world in which we live to continue to exist. Whether it be facing our greatest fear or most deadly foe, we must draw upon all of our skills and experiences gathered upon the path to the inmost cave in order to overcome our most difficult challenge.

Only through some form of “death” we can be reborn, experiencing a metaphorical resurrection that somehow grants us greater power or insight necessary in order to fulfill our destiny. This is the high-point of our story and where everything we hold dear (emotional baggage) is put on the line. If our Hero fails, he will either die or live as he knows it will never be the same again.

9. Reward (Seizing The Sword)

After defeating the enemy, surviving death and finally overcoming our greatest personal challenge, we are ultimately transformed into a new state, emerging from battle as a stronger person and often with a prize.

The Reward may come in many forms:

An object of great importance or power, a secret, greater knowledge or insight, or even reconciliation with a loved one or ally.

Whatever the treasure, which may well facilitate our return to the Ordinary World, that when we must quickly put celebrations aside and prepare for the last leg of his journey.

10. The Road Back

This stage represents a reverse echo of the Call to Adventure in which we had to cross the first threshold. Now we must return home with our reward but this time the anticipation of danger is replaced with that of acclaim and perhaps vindication, absolution or even exoneration.

But our Hero’s journey is not yet over and we may still need one last push back into the Ordinary World. The moment before we finally commit to the last stage of our journey may be a moment in which we must choose between our own personal objective and that of a Higher Cause.

11. Resurrection

This is the climax in which our Hero must have the final and most dangerous encounter with the metaphorical death. The final battle also represents something far greater than our own existence with its outcome having far-reaching consequences to our Ordinary World and the lives of those we left behind.

If we fail, others will suffer and this not only places more weight upon our shoulders but in a movie, grips the audience so that they too feel part of the conflict and share our Hero’s hopes, fears and trepidation. Ultimately our Hero will succeed, destroy the (inner) enemy and emerge from battle cleansed and reborn.

12. Return With The Elixir

This is the final stage of our journey in which we return home to our Ordinary World a changed human being. We will have grown as a person, learned many things, faced many terrible dangers and even death but now looks forward to the start of a new life.

Our return may bring fresh hope to those we left behind, a direct solution to their problems or perhaps a new perspective for everyone to consider.

The final reward that we obtains may be literal or metaphoric.

It could be a cause for celebration, self-realization or an end to strife, but whatever it is it represents three things:

• Change

• Success

• Proof of our journey.

The return home also signals the need for resolution for the story’s other key players.

Our doubters or enemies will be ostracized, and our allies rewarded.

Ultimately we will return to where we started with a better version of ourselves and things will clearly never be the same again.

Last but not least;

“Hard times don’t create heroes. It is when the “hero” within us is revealed.”

The Difference between Attachment And Love.

According to Spiritual Law, you can have anything your heart desires.

Now it is important to identify if you are focusing your happiness, sense of security or feeling of power from someone or something in your life as a source.

If that is happening then you are attached to that person or thing.

That needs to be worked because it will bind you to a lower frequency that will keep you stuck and unable to grow into a better version of yourself.

Attachment is about fear and dependency. Which is something that has to be more with self- love instead of love to another.

Love without attachment is the representation of purest love because it isn’t about what others can give you based on a wrong perception that you feel empty,

It is about what you can give others because you are already full.

Let me explain this;

Based on the Law of Detachment in the detachment lies the wisdom of uncertainty…

In the wisdom of uncertainty lies the freedom from our past, from the known, which is the prison of past conditioning.

And in our willing to step to the unknown, the field of all possibilities, we surrender ourselves to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the Universe.

The best guidance to boost your level of energy frequency is by releasing unhealthy cords that tie you to people, things and emotions.

1. In the event that we can’t ignore, neither remove (from scratch) attachments from the mind and heart, make a list and organize them placing on the top those that affect your inner peace and create a negative impact to your physical and mental health.

Remember trapped emotions will always search to hang out within your cellular tissue, creating as result energetic blockages that end up in muscle strains, spasms, insomnia, migraines, nervous system diseases and as such physical pain.

2. Reconnect to your spiritual source by praying and meditating.

“When we pray, we talk to God and when we meditate, we listen to God.”

After organizing your attachments, separate at least 15 minutes daily during 21 days (without cheating) sit down in a quite space and begin your personal relationship with God.

The reason of the 21 days is because it’s been sustained by scientific research that in order to develop a good habit or break an addiction within the human’s brain embracing a 21 days challenge is the most effective way to reach the goal.

Pray to God humbly…

a. Gratitude is the best attitude waking up alive during a global Pandemic is a good reason to give thanks.

b. Share what is disturbing your heart and mind (your attachments list), recognize that behind them there is a lesson that needs to be learned, accept the Lord’s will by being receptive to flow (an important person in my life, while being in desolation once told me “You do not negotiate with God”) so you might want to remember that, because if it has made a difference to me and the people I have shared this with, you might benefit from this as well.

Then sit down in silence, bring your attention to your breath thinking that “When you inhale you are taking the strength from God, when you exhale it represents the healing you are giving to yourself and service you are giving to this world.

c. As a Spirit Guide Coach and Master Resilience Trainer, I have realized through personal and clients experiences that an effective way to receive answers to our questions is working with the scriptures.

After you spend those 15 minutes of praying and meditation, have a bible near you close your eyes and ask God for guidance…when you open the bible (randomly) check where your index finger is pointing at, read the chapter because the answer to your question or the consolation to your desolation will be there.

If it’s confusing for you to relate it to your current situation, search in the web for the different reflections available from priests, pastors or spiritual teachers and I assure that you will resonate with one of their different feedbacks.

3. Watch your diet.

As an Ayurvedic Certified Yoga Teacher…

a. You are what you eat! If you are mixing anxiety with opening the refrigerator that’s a wrong answer.

b. Eat 5 small portion of dinners during 24 hours. If you skip meals and do not snack between meals every time you sit down to eat, your brain will fool you to eat at that one opportunity all the food you haven’t eaten. Eventually that will mess up your metabolism generating overweight issues, that will impact your physical and mental (self-esteem) health.

c. Be mindful with your alcohol consumption. Learn to keep boundaries with this, because alcohol lowers energy frequency creating vulnerability to our inmune system. Also alcohol is an addictive (creates attachment)depressor. Just be mindful with your relationship to it. Balance in life is necessary for everything.

4. Exercise.

Scientific research have sustained the benefits of working out to the human’s physical and mental health.

If you are a beginner and are under any kind of medical treatment approach your physician before doing any type of work out.

Walking is a great exercise to start.

Yoga has many styles that suits special needs for everyone. And the best of yoga practice is that stimulates cellular resiliency thru maintaining blood circulation free of blockages because of the consciousness developed of how to use our breath as inner healer.

5. Practice self-love.

Every morning after you wake up and have practiced gratitude to the Lord for the opportunity of another day alive, stand in front of the mirror, see that beautiful and wonderful human being in front of you.

Repeat to yourself the following words…

I love myself

I accept my imperfection and my story. Because without my story I wouldn’t have been able to bloom like a lotus flower currently rising up to the surface of the pond.

I will allow myself to forgive me, because living in pain is a choice.

Hence I will allow myself to release resentments and cut unhealthy cords that attach me to that story.

I will be compassionate to myself working without pressure but will keep in mind that receptivity and heart opening attitude will allow me to live unconditionally into self-love and love without attachments.

Last but not least;

“Detachment is not that you should own nothing, but that nothing should own you.”

FAREWELL 2019

Hey there beautiful Souls, today we are transitioning towards a new decade.

Let’s review briefly and without attachment to the past.

When you start to feel that things should have been better during 2019, remember the mountains and valleys that got you here.

Let me give you an example, yesterday I had to bury my beloved mother after a year of her health struggling. It was hard, very hard! Extremely heart breaking and painful. Moreover, she passed away the day after Christmas.

But her release from suffering, her eternal peace soothes a daughter’s sorrow.

Mountains and valleys in our lives do not show up by accident. They bring always lessons to learn. We will never be the same, but it’s our divine responsibility to pull it off in order to use those experiences as resiliency tools looking forward to find each day a better version of ourselves.

We most embrace our processes with accountability and without exposing others to any remaining collateral damage from our emotional baggage.

Look at yourself in a mirror…

You are not the same, you have grown and you are growing. You are breathing. You are living. You are wrapped in endless, boundless grace. And things will get better. There is more to you than yesterday.

I have learned a lot this year…

I keep learning that things don’t always turn out the way you think they should. Also that there are things that go wrong that don’t always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before.

I have learned that some broken things stay broken. And I have learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who loves you.

Note that 2020 will be a better chapter if we think positively. Let go of past mistakes. Make new friends. With kindness stay away from toxic people. Use our talents. Don’t hold back. Do good deeds. Be of service. Speak up for yourself and know your worth.

Semperlee Yoga wishes you a New Year sheltered with abundance of amazing opportunities, beautiful moments and joyful experiences.

May your positive actions and attitudes inspire others. May you be brave enough to take on and overcome rewarding challenges.

May you find yourself in high spirits and excellent health.

May you love with all your heart and find peace even in the most turbulent of times.

May the love you give find its way back to you multiplied.

And may you forever be filled with hope and strength necessary to make your dreams a reality.

How To Pick A Battle Carefully.

And old Cherokee told his grandson,

“My son there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy and truth.”

The boy thought about it and asked, “Grandfather, which wolf wins?

The old man quietly replied…

“THE ONE YOU FEED”

Hence the warrior is not someone who fights, for no one has the right to take another life. The warrior within (the Good from the above tale), is the one who sacrifices or even surrenders (him/herself) for the good of others.

In order to take care of the elderly, the defenseless, those who cannot provide for themselves, and above all, the children, the future of humanity.”

Last but not least;

Life will keep bringing you the same test, over and over, again until you pass it!

The Best Journey Within…

Hello there beautiful Souls, have you visualized your physical body thru an imaginary lens?

Well gently close your eyes, and bring your attention to your breath, bring your tongue towards the roof of your mouth behind the front teeth, begin to inhale thru your nose and when you exhale, begin to activate relaxation within. Now bring your attention to your forehead. Visualize your physical vehicle.

See your physical body as a product of this material dimension. It is created on earth using elements like carbon, hydrogen and calcium. It is vulnerable, it has limitations and a finite lifespan.

Your higher self has chosen to inhabit it to have experiences that the Spirit world does not offer. It is not the real you. What you see in the mirror is only a vehicle. The real you is perfect, limitless and eternal. It is connected to everyone and everything you see. The ability to contact your Guides and their knowledge is omnipresent, but you must do your part to access their wisdom.

How do we access their wisdom? Becoming receptive to this guidance which is your birthright, we are delivered to this life guarded by a celestial energetic team of Guides that includes a guardian angel, a departed loved one (some cases two), Archangel Michael is assigned to protect humanity, so we have this energy available to us when we need to connect to it and some people might have 2 archangels assigned for guidance and protection based on their Soul’s contract or life’s purpose.

The higher our calling the larger the team will be. Meditation, sitting in silence, and asking to receive advice during the dream state are all ways to establish contact with your higher self and Guides. Also thru meditation you can find your life’s purpose and Highest Potential.

What is Highest Potential?

Before going to this explanation I want to address something to make you think.

God sends power in humble packages; on the back of fool little children always, there’s no way to conceal it. 

Because they look harmless. 

Think about humbleness, and it’s congruency with power…at least for a minute.

Our highest potential is manifested when we act every moment (we recognize a choice is present), towards the best potential option (available) within the circumstances as an outcome.

Embrace this process, have no fear to sitting in silence enjoy that darkness as is the only way you will be able to see the light. For assistance in how to meditate go to this website menu and click on meditation benefits.

Last but not least;

Don’t be discouraged by the earthy distractions placed between you and your Guides. Practice developing this sacred relationship. You will find that life becomes much easier when you have daily communication with your Guides.

Namaste

Some of our finest works comes through service to others.

Hey there beautiful Souls. Have you ever asked yourself “What being of service mean?

Furthermore, about the positive repercussions it provides to humanity and hence ourselves.

Well when you strive to empower the lives of others, you elevate the consciousness of this dimension. No good deeds is to small act of kindness and service are regarded at the spiritual realms as the loftiest of goals.

To ease suffering of another in any way from charitable contributions to volunteer work, or something as simple as making someone’s day brighter with a simple smile or kind gesture is and will always be the greatest gift you can give to yourself.

And I share this based on my personal experience facilitating Karma yoga to the military community at Puerto Rico.

Keep in mind that raising the energy of this planet by doing selfless deeds is a win-win for all concerned. By raising the vibration of others you raise the vibration within yourself.

Remember above all else you are here to leave this Earth dimension better than how you found it. Seek ways to make your mark, leave your signature with humbleness but do that effort and you will feel how that light which begins to shine (within the chamber of your heart) illuminates and shelters others.

It is not possible to fix all the anguish in the world, but it is imperative that you don’t create more. Be mindful of your thoughts words and deeds.

Last but not least:

“Be the chance that you want to see in the world.”

Give Without Expectation…

Hey there Beautiful Souls,

Have you ever been able to give without expectations?

Allow me share this with you. When you spread light and love to others, it should be done without any conditions attached to the act.

And why is that?

Because attachment is the root of suffering. We are all made of the same energy, so the good that you give out is essentially given to yourself. In other terms when you help others, you help yourself.

So my point here is that the joy of giving will always be your reward. Remember that energy is constantly flowing, and by lovingly giving unconditionally you will be able to increase the flow and bring it into a higher vibration of being which in turn assists everyone.

Giving is part of our Soul, hence when you are not able to give without conditions, your ego will develop issues of scarcity and the need to feel acknowledged.

When you give selflessly from the heart, you increase the energies of abundance and gratitude throughout your sphere of influence.

Life is not a competition…

We are here to help each other instead of allowing ourselves get lost into an EGO trip, that will trigger inner scarcity leaving behind struggles ultimately delaying your journey towards a higher self.

Focus in ways that you can give without expectations allow yourself to pay forward all the good things (that you already have) without consciously thinking about it and you will be able to see that the best rewards reaped are from acts that you didn’t even realized you had sown.

Where ever life plants you… Bloom with grace.

Hello there, beautiful Souls. Sometimes the little things in life are more than enough. You bet they are. Nonetheless, when staring at a sunflower see how bright sunny and positive it spreads seeds of happiness.

What I mean is that you can always choose to rise, shine and hold your head high. Flowers grow back, even after they are stepped on.

If a sunflower chooses to face the sun every single day, you can choose to face the sun as well and instead of holding yourself back in the dark.

Keep in mind that the smallest act of love should begin with self love. Self love is the kindest gift you can shelter your heart with hence someone else’s heart.

Last but not least, darkness is our nature, but the journey for light echoes from our Soul.

Namaste

If there is a will, there is a way…

Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change…

What is intention?

It is an aim or plan.

In the medicine and holistic fields is the healing process of a physical or emotional wound.

During the integration of a yoga class, we (the teachers) have the intention to guide the practitioner to allow him or herself to let go of anything that is not in alignment to that peaceful moment targeted to reconcile body, mind, and spirit.

To take a look at their inner selves in order to identify the reason that took them ( in the first place) to that yoga class.

Then to allow themselves to set that thought as the aim that will keep them focused with commitment to keep their poise during challenging poses just at it should be in the midst of adversity through our lives.

In other terms to be able to fall and bounce without breaking.

To be resilient.

It is important always, always…

Quoting Wayne W. Dyer,

“When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.”

Also that with everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift.

Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.

The most important here is to keep flexibility and humility in order to recognize that although we are not perfect, that is not a license to project any self’s frustration over others and become hurtful with others at work, out at the streets or with our loved ones.

How do you identify this while in a yoga class?

When arriving to your mat (carrying the burdens of a day), and we cannot allow ourselves to set that intention, because we are giving power to a monkey mind to take charge intercepting our productivity and growing process.

Not only that, getting ourselves into a balance posture and finding a drishti or gaze (while in yoga and life) becomes harder than getting into the pose itself.

These are the moments when the power of intention takes place with empowerment.

Also remember that passion is a feeling that tells you: this is the right thing to do. Nothing can stand in my way. It doesn’t matter what anyone else says. This feeling is so good that it cannot be ignored. I’m going to follow my bliss and act upon this glorious sensation of joy.

Last but not least;

“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.”

Namaste 🙏🏼

How to return leading the pack, after being thrown to the wolves…

If you want to give birth to your true self, you will have to dig deep down into your own flesh and let your soul howl.

It might require a leap of faith and trust that if you turn your head off, your feet will take you to that intention as such.

Be a warrior of love but allow yourself to follow these steps

• Do not allow others mistake your gentleness for weakness or your timeless grace for vulnerability.

• keep in mind that having to pull out broken arrows from your heart is a self accountability process that doesn’t belong to new people that arrives.

• Everybody and every experience we meet and embrace are meant to bring us a lesson, which will improve our journey towards a higher self. For instance learn to see those broken arrows in a positive way so you can use the sharp edges to carve a path straight into a new dawn while bleeding your dreams to life.

• Never stop thinking that you are a warrior worth more than your weight in gold.

• You are the guardian of your own light, so do not allow anyone to dimm that light because of their lack of resiliency skills to coupe with their unresolved emotional business and hence projections.

• Keep your spirit young and nurture it with forgiveness and unconditional love, starting with yourself.

You can also repeat this affirmation every morning for 21 days in order to feel empowered enough to allow yourself to let go and move on from anything that feels resistant to your process.

“I had fought a thousand battles… And I am still standing…

Have cried a thousand tears… And I am still smiling… I have been broken, betrayed, abandoned, rejected,

But I still walk proud…

Laugh proud…

Live without fear…

Love without doubt…

This person within my body is a beautiful soul.

But most of all is humble enough to embrace her (his) own light and transmute any darkness.”

Last but not least;

“Your heart is as big as an ocean and will always be able to face any fear.”

Dedicated to Aida Gonzalez a person who truly learned how to run with the wolves and came back leading the pack♥️.
