South Beach Vs. Facebook

lifeguard tower stand miami beach florida 15

Could the solution to all political conflicts be as simple as allowing humans to live in a pleasant environment with enough space and minimal intrusions from some imposed authority???

Sometimes it’s easier to relax in the couch with my tablet than to take a drive to nature. Living in Miami, I try to go to the beach at least once a week to connect with Earth and Sun, breathe fresh air and cleanse with the salt water. This last Sunday the red flag had been posted on the lifeguard shack. The ocean looked disorganized and the lifeguards where constantly whistling for people come closer to shore. At one point I disconnected from myself and started absorbing the atmosphere around me:

  • First there was the slow cool pace of a hip hop song talking about a couple seducing each other and eventually hooking up.
  • Then, the back and forth of two guys playing beach tennis with wooden paddles. They would make comments in some language I didn’t recognize, but they seemed either middle eastern or from India.
  • Kids started getting excited and a few people of all ages and colors gathered at the shore because someone almost stepped in a huge jellyfish.
  • A few seconds later, a black guys settle behind me and started talking to his friend about almost stepping on that “thing” and that next time he traveled to Miami he was going to bring water-shoes…then their conversation somehow veered off to some Eddie Murphy movie.
  • Some Latin grandpa decided to just swim as far as he wanted and the lifeguard jumped on his ATV and started having a fit as he rung a siren off of his bullhorn. The grandpa’s family, started calling him, again people started gathering and after he took his time he leisurely swam backwards towards the shore, never actually facing the lifeguard, which looked like he really wanted to chew him off.
  • Mr. Lifeguard (he looked really white and had what seemed like a military hair cut) in his frustration of having grandpa played him, decided to tell beach tennis guys to take their game behind the crowd.
  • Beach tennis guys started complaining and decided to just stand there and each take a beer from their cooler.
  • A pretty little Haitian girl, about 9, would talk to her doll in english and creole and walk up to shore and wet her doll’s feet comforting it as if it was a child’s first time in the ocean.
  • There was a German couple covering their legs from the sun (I thought that was smart they looked really pale)
  • Just close enough to hear and distinguish it but far enough not to disturb was the quick pace of another boombox with salsa. These guys were a bigger group with a whole set up, they had a couple of coolers, chairs, a mini tent, big umbrellas, etc.
  • I also walked by the shore and saw all sorts of other people and preferences in their lifestyles. I wasn’t labeling, I was just enjoying the diversity without any negative thoughts towards any of it.

I’m pretty sure there was more and that I am missing many more colorful details, but these are the pictures I have in my mind right now. These are the influences I allowed in and I was so glad I experienced it.

We were all enjoying Mother Nature together and everyone was happy, relaxed and generous with their sympathy towards each other. Each culture doing its thing and at the same time being part of the human family. I loved it all, loved their energy, speech, fashions, sounds, etc. I was so glad, I had not stayed home reading rants of angry people in Facebook.

Nurturing a Helping Energy

ee534b30395fad9802de25b9342173cf--celtic-goddess-moon-goddessRecently, I wrote an article about not needing as much “healing” as we think we do. Specially when we visit doctors, which tend to be very expensive and invest their beliefs in artificial cures. I received many emails asking me a more detailed process in self healing.

The process is very simple and even logical. One important thing that I did not stress in that article is that the miraculous disappearance of the discomfort occurs while you are unaware of it. This is tricky, because how do you became unaware of, say, a pain in a joint that constantly hurts. The quick answer is through a habit. Let me explain, as you decide to self heal or cure yourself, this immediate impulse pulls power from your inner unlimited potential. Doing your research and consulting for these purposes helps on the more external and physical workings of the condition you desire to resolve. Now comes the powerful part, adding a constant habit (or small ritual) to your life, that includes the benefits of the research you did. The goal is to live a life that filled with these little meaningful actions from the moment you wake up to the moment you retire to bed. For mystics this is called, living a life of blessings. By the way, this same principal applies if you desire to heal others. You can implement actions in your personal life to improve the conditions for others.

The more habits/rituals you add to your daily routine, the less each of them has your conscious attention. This allows your inner power to flow obstructively to remedy or improve any condition you have desired before. Eventually, one day you realize that something that ailed, worried or bothered you is no longer within your everyday experience. When that day arrives, it is time to find a special moment or gesture for gratitude.

Be Powerful, Be Blessed, Be Grateful…

Feeling Like You Need Healing?

sad-patientYou don’t need healing, you just need reminding. You are a magical being. You walk two worlds. This external world which has boundaries and your internal world which is boundless. Everything on the outside (including physical symptoms) is a rough reflection of your internal world.

Your Internal world is shaped by your thoughts and emotions. Thinking that you need healing sounds/feels like you are on the passive side of receiving. Passive thinking does not have as much power as active thinking. I suggest you recognize what is bothering you and take an active approach to it. Decide to get rid or evict a sensation, habit, thought, etc. out of your internal experience. Believe in your self and stick to that decision and do research, try, experiment, do whatever, but DO! …and I promise you, one day in the future, without even realizing it that energy that made you think you needed healing will have dissipated without even your own realization. It won’t be the actual thing you did, it will be the decision and the energy you invested in whatever you did. This by the way is the biggest secret behind the whole medical industry fraud. We are all unique and doctors nowadays are single minded. First they follow a general protocol and fill you with chemicals not produced in Mother Nature (when your body is of Mother Nature only). Then they send you to a “specialist”. Finally they start experimenting with you. And as all of this is going on, it is your showing up and putting up with all this crap that actually cures you. The Power is within you, Always!

Shamanic Practices and Contemporary Art

download

There is a renewed interest in ritual, shamanism, and transcendental experiences. It is known that in times of crisis, people start looking for God. People over all right now have a sense of loss of community and empathy. This is why I take shamanism so seriously and will continue to dedicate my life to it’s resurgence in some form or another. Shamans were the watchers and keepers of the community. We are the translators of the energy bubble that permeates a society.

Shaman, Not Guilty of Fraud

korean-shamanism1-matador-seo

I have posted many warnings about fraudulent shamans and healers before; but in this case I am sharing the opposite. A shaman was sued in Korea for fraud, but the courts decided that he/she had provided a valuable service, even though the original desired outcome had not been what the clients wanted.

This says so much about the way we sometimes want to impose our will on events that happen in life (or don’t in this case) and when they don’t we are willing to go as far as trying to “kill the messenger”. I personally go through this as well, although unlike this shaman in Korea, I wouldn’t go as far as doing 133 rituals for the same desired result. Life is an ocean of energy, and flows are constantly shifting. If things don’t work out when desired, we can always try later, but very often it’s just a matter of allowing the stars to align. This is another way of saying, that certain things need to happen for others to be possible.

Korea has a unique style of shamanism and it is very prevalent in its culture.

Energy of Power

3300238-6483029225-13458

There is a language in nature and in the Universe. It uses colors, proportions, angles, etc. It expresses the essence of the energy manifested. To me it is almost like the eternal question of what came first, the chicken or the egg. This is very self evident in successful multi billion companies, did they choose the logo or did the essence behind the logo’s energy choose the humans that would create the company. I suspect it is a combination of both.

As humans we have the ability to control our vibrations, we do this by choosing how and what we think about, also by adjusting the emotions towards those thoughts. Mystics study the interaction of manifestations and their symbols. This is very evident in art for example, paintings as abstract as they can be communicate a certain emotion or “feeling”. The artist does this by channeling energies. Many of them call this, being in the “zone”. Imagine, if you could constantly and consistently create a little doodle that expressed desired outcomes in your life. I am not talking about working or goal-setting, but about living in a way that expresses your desires to the Universe.

Many lifestyles already manifest these desires, saints have a very iconic behavior, many billionaires are workaholics, rock stars behave and dress a certain way, etc. These  are humans interacting with a specific type of vibration that produces certain results. People that look up to these folks emulate them, but the results are rarely the same. It is not about emulating, but about channeling the specific vibration of the results desired. Furthermore, we each have a unique vibration of our own, so it is important that we know ourselves before we decide on inviting a vibration in our lives. It is very similar to becoming a parent. The main focus as a parent should be on being physically, emotionally and mentally fit for the arrival (channeling) of the baby. Once the baby is born, it will naturally have its own personality, and life with it also becomes a process of adaptation.

Shamanism focuses on Power. We adjust to a lifestyle that increases power for healing and spiritual work. This same power can also be used for the manifestation or the realization of desired results. The ideal lifestyle of the shaman is that every action while awake is either part of a ritual or a prayer. Every moment is a communion with the Universe, which is always talking to us through symbolism.

Disliking Others

41c54c22e836d2824949097067da35ca

I must admit, I personally dislike people that dislike me, some part of me becomes uncomfortable when I realize they have not recognized my magnificence. Some would say that there is a lot of “ego” in those emotions. I tend to see it as “self knowledge”. My daily job as a shaman, allows me the privilege of seen hundreds of people and their inner most divine contributions to this world. Humans are such unique and elite beings. They/We are literally unlimited potential self discovering ourselves as we exist. To catch a glimpse of this will definitely change the perspective you have of yourself and the people around you.

This is also why in shamanism, we quietly smile and privately (almost) laugh at groups or ideologies that point the finger at others. If you know you are super magnificent, then just be and maybe others can learn by your example; if they want or need to. As for others, if you don’t like their ways, that is perfectly acceptable since you are magnificent, just don’t forget that not letting them be is not a magnificent trait.

This message becomes critically obvious if you watch the news. There are so many “experts” around the world, talking and criticizing so many other “experts”. Their speech patterns are very agitated and aggressive; kind of like stressed monkeys in the wild. I can comfortably share, I don’t like them at all, and yet…we shall let them be.  People that constantly look outside themselves eventually get tired and at some point discover that their inner potential is what this life is all about.

As the Temple of Apollo at Delphi read: “Know Thyself”.
