KNOWING OURSELVES

KNOWING OURSELVES
This book can be of great value for those who want to take the path of responsibility in their lives, who want to take the first step toward freedom and self knowledge, using the topic of disease in humans as a guide. Its purpose is to help the sick person to find health status, based primarily on what happens within us. Because even if we can find help abroad (psychologists, doctors, gurus, etc.) the only ones who are able to heal us are ourselves. A book dedicated to physical, emotional and spiritual health.

Anything Can Be Healed!



When an individual who has been out of balance has made the decision to return to balance, they must make it a high priority project. Nothing else must be more important. Particularly in the case of a catastrophic illness, the return to health necessarily becomes more important than family, friends, or job. When there has been the recognition of a path to health, nothing must interfere with that path. The development and maintenance of a positive mental attitude is imperative.
Each of us is a self-organizing autonomous system of consciousness. Each of us is an energy system. Energy flows through our Being, and is directed by our consciousness. This energy is in a state of movement, flow, and in a healthy organism the energy is harmonious, and flows smoothly. When the flow of this energy is blocked or interrupted, it is experienced by the organism as an imbalance, and the organism’s tendency is to return to balance and harmony, to return to health. This tendency toward harmony is an aspect of love.
All illness, all injury, is energy blocked or interrupted, or a call for love. Each of us, including you, the reader, has the ability to sense energy, detect it, and direct it.
Ultimately, any energy block can be released by your consciousness. It is not a question of whether it can be done, but rather how it can be done.
Within your Being, within your consciousness, is the ability to love, to perceive without judgment or expectation, to care. You have a potential for infinite love, whether or not you choose to recognize it, and whether or not you choose to manifest it. In fact, this love is the very nature of your Being.
You have the ability to love wherever there was a perception of a lack of love, or a call for love. Love heals.
You have in your consciousness the potential and ability to heal anything, on any level, in yourself as well as in any other Being, since it’s all just love and energy. What remains is for you to realize this fully and actualize that potential.
Anything can be healed.
You can heal anything.

PELVIS DISORDERS, emotional and metaphysical causes:



The pelvis is the bony structure that is in close connection with the uterus. Therefore, pelvic problems are related to that organ.
It is related to reproduction and sexuality.
In 60% of cases there is the belief that "I am not good at sex".
In 20% of cases, there is a belief that "I cannot gestate, accept, receive, care for, protect a newborn".
In 20% of cases, there is a belief that "my sexual life is out of the norm, where it goes to my life”
Conflict of sexual impairment. Sexuality outside the norm: if at some point, we consider the sexual life as "something wrong". Whether because I consider myself a woman "and great for those things," or if I feel as “unattractive” to my husband or partner. It can also be, that my partner is younger and I feel somewhat outdated in the sexual plane.
Sexual competition: Another reason why I can present a problem in the pelvis, is the fact considered "sex" as a skills competition. I always practice sex thinking if get to the orgasm, if it's all the pleasure that I give to my partner if he/she will be satisfied, if I'm going to make him/her happy, etc.  I do not feel my shape, style, etc., having sex is good. Am I good? Would I play there? Did I say that? Do I move it?
Conflict of not being able to accommodate a child or another child successfully.
They may be related to the pelvis problems: infertility, abortions, difficult births, ineffective contractions, emergency caesarean, fetal death in uterus or at birth, etc.

Perception Is A Mirror



You respond to what you perceive, and as you perceive so shall you behave.

Every response you make
to everything you perceive
is up to you,
because your mind determines
your perception of it.

You cannot be aware without interpretation,
for what you perceive is your interpretation.

Understand that you do not respond
to anything directly,
but to your interpretation of it.
Your interpretation thus becomes
the justification for the response.

Perception selects, and makes the world you see.
It literally picks it out as the mind directs.
The laws of size and shape and brightness
would hold, perhaps,
if other things were equal.
They are not equal.
For what you look for
you are far more likely to discover
than what you would prefer to overlook.

The world can teach no images of you
unless you want to learn them.

Reality needs no cooperation from you to be itself.
But your awareness of it needs your help.

Perception is a choice
of what you want yourself to be;
the world you want to live in,
and the state in which you think your mind
will be content and satisfied.
It chooses where you think your safety lies, at your decision.
It reveals yourself to you as you would have you be.
And always is it faithful to your purpose.

Let us be glad that you will see what you believe,
and that it has been given you to change
what you believe.

If you perceive truly
you are canceling out misperceptions
in yourself and in others simultaneously.
Because you see them as they are,
you offer them your acceptance of their truth
so they can accept it for themselves.

Let us not rest content
until the world has joined our changed perception.
Let us not be satisfied until forgiveness has been made complete.

As I share the peace of the world with my brothers,
I begin to understand
that this peace comes from deep within myself.

Laziness As Our Personal Teacher




The path of awakening is a process. It’s a process of gradually learning to become intimate with our so-called obstacles. So rather than feeling discouraged by laziness, we could look into our laziness, become curious about laziness. We could get to know laziness profoundly.

We can unite with laziness, be our laziness, know its smell and taste, feel it fully in our bodies. The spiritual path is a process of relaxing into this very moment of being. We touch in with this moment of lethargy or loss of heart, this moment of pain, of avoidance, of couldn’t care less. We touch in and then we go forward. This is the training. Whether in formal meditation or throughout our days and nights, we can train in letting go of our commentary and contacting the felt quality of our experience. We can touch our experience without getting hooked by the story line. We can touch this very moment of being and then move on.

We are sitting in meditation or going about our usual routine, and it occurs to us to listen to what we’re saying. What we hear is, Oy vey, oy vey! Woe is me. I’m a failure. There’s no hope. We look at what we do to ourselves, what we say to ourselves, how we lose heart or try to distract ourselves. Then we let those words go and touch the heart of this moment. We touch the very center of this moment of being and then we let go. This is how we train. Again and again, this is our practice.

We join our loss of heart with honesty and kindness. Instead of pulling back from the pain of laziness, we move closer. We lean into the wave. We swim into the wave.

Somewhere in the process of staying with the moment, it might occur to us that there are a lot of unhappy brothers and sisters out there, suffering as we are suffering. In becoming intimate with our own pain, with our own laziness, we are touching in with all of them, understanding them, knowing our kinship with all of them.

[...]Instead of continuing to zone out and shut down and close off, we lean in and relax. This is how we practice.

So maybe we open the window or go out for a walk, or maybe we sit silently, but whatever we do, it occurs to us to stay with ourselves, to go behind the words, behind the ignoring, and to feel the quality of this moment of being, in our hearts, in our stomachs, for ourselves, and for all of the millions of others in the same boat. We start to train in openness and compassion toward this very moment. This very moment of laziness becomes our personal teacher. This precious moment becomes our profound and healing practice.

TENSION HEADACHE, emotional and metaphysical causes:



A tension headache is an oppressive pain (like a helmet on the head). It usually affects the two halves of the head and usually begins in the forehead. Unlike migraine, those affected are not bothered by noise or light.
A tension headache respond to the difficulty of solving a problem through the intellect. As it is necessary to provide more nutrients to the brain, vasodilation occurs.
Conflict in relation to brain activity. Guilt and control (excess or deficit) of a specific situation.
People prone to headaches are those that hide, clearing things they do not want to face in reality, acting as if nothing had happened, as if they had no problems. They live dramas, like everyone else, but their defence system is to deny everything. They deny their emotions or their "negative" experiences. That is, they try to leave their troubles aside:
"At the end of the day it is not so bad, not worth worrying about, nor bitter about that..”.
It is rigid character individuals who continually try to prove to everyone, that are right and that nothing "wrong" never happens to them.
Cluster headaches: Conflict of impotence and intellectual devaluation in the clan or in the group. "I devalued myself by putting my face on someone from my clan."
It is very important for these people to become aware of their negations; They need to be aware of stress and to accept and express their emotions and internal conflicts.

Disease Comes From Yourself And You Don’t Realize It



We are the only species on the face of the Earth capable of transforming our biology through our thoughts and feelings. Our cells are constantly watching our thoughts and are being modified by them. A bout of depression can devastate our immune system; a state of serenity, in contrast, can fortify it tremendously. Joyful and harmonious activity  can keep us healthy and prolong our life. The memories of a negative or sad situation release the same hormones and biological destructive substances that stress does. Our cells are constantly processing all our experiences and metabolizing them according to our personal points of view. As a result, our bodies are transformed as soon as we internalize our interpretations. A depressed person, for example,  will project sadness throughout his or her entire body. When depression occurs, the production of neurotransmitters from the brain are altered, hormone levels will vary, the sleep cycle is interrupted, the neuropeptide receptors on the outer surface of the skin cells are modified, blood platelets become more viscous and more likely to form lumps and even the tears will contain different chemical trails as those of joy.
This entire biochemical profile will change drastically once the person becomes calm and serene. These facts confirm the great need to use our consciousness to create the bodies that we really need. The same way the aging process can be neutralized every day. Shakespeare was not being metaphorical when through his character Prosperous said: “We are made of the same stuff as dreams”.
Do you want to know how is your body doing today? Then remember what your thoughts and emotions were yesterday. Do you want to know how your body will be tomorrow? Observe your thoughts and emotions today!
Remember that when you open up your heart and your mind you will be avoiding a surgeon doing it for you. The remedy is within you and you are not using it. Disease comes from yourself and you don’t realize it.

HALITOSIS (bad breath), emotional and metaphysical causes:



When bad breath is not from any particular disease, tooth decay, stomach problems, etc., its cause is in the emotional part.
It occurs when someone has been hurt and has a great inner pain. The bad smell is due to the accumulation of unwholesome thoughts of hatred, anger and revenge, directed towards who has caused the damage.
Halitosis expresses us that our attitudes towards others are not entirely correct. It manifests itself in people who frequently speak evil of others and not always with good intentions and they tend to think bad of all, situations, people, etc. It is individuals who easily get angry, spiteful and maintain thirst for revenge.
The fetid breath can also be the means by which a person is exhaling disgust he/she feels for some poorly digested situation, and cannot speak.
Symbolically, bad breath represents the desire to alienate others and show that we are rotting inside.
Recommendations to recover physical, emotional and spiritual health:
Every time we feel wounded, we must sit and contemplate our acceptance wound.
Do not put the attention on who offends us because only one channel is set in motion by the energy of our wound that was latent within us waiting to be able to show that we can feel and heal.
The practice of forgiveness toward those who have accused and ourselves by thoughts of revenge and separation will allow us to heal the wound but with acceptance and absolute responsibility for our feelings.

Is the Ego Your Friend or Foe?



It’s common to hear people on a spiritual path saying that you need to destroy or erase the ego. However, while you have a physical body, it’s necessary to have an ego just as much as you have a mind and intellect. Rather than focusing on eliminating the ego, your aim should be to balance it so it acts in harmony with all your other layers of life.
In terms of evolution, the non-local Absolute manifests the Jiva or individual soul. The individual soul brings with it the karma for this lifetime and creates the ego to help facilitate this. From the ego emerge the intellect, the mind, and your physical world as projections of your karmic tendencies. The karmic curse is that we have forgotten who we really are and instead, the ego creates all the stories, labels, and roles of who we think we are. Thus the ego knows us intimately and, if left to its own devices, becomes the director of our life story.
A Closer Look at the Ego
Up until the age of about two, the ego is fairly dormant. Then, all of a sudden the word “mine” is discovered. Even though this may be challenging for those around you, you enter the period when the ego plays an important role in your life. As you grow, the ego supports you in your education, career, starting a family, and generally establishing your life. The ego loves to organize things, but unfortunately, it also loves to control not only your life but also the world around you.
If not managed, this negative side of the ego manifests as arrogance, pride, vanity, judgements, and prejudices. In the more extreme cases, it emerges as the need to control, the lust for power, fanaticism, or an obsession with materialism. Unfortunately, many people forego a more spiritual approach to life and become stuck with these seductive qualities of the ego. This leads to one definition of ego as being Edging God Out!
Those of us who have begun to realize that there is more to life than materialism will sooner or later embark on a spiritual journey that will eventually take us “home.” However, this is a time when the ego can be most troublesome. The ego likes to be in charge to control, whereas your spiritual practices are to break you out of boundaries and live in freedom. When you first start your sadhana(spiritual practice), the ego doesn’t take much notice. It thinks, “It was that new diet last month and the exercise program the month before, this won’t last either.” However, as you continue and become regular with your meditation, yoga asana, etc., the ego starts to grow nervous.
The driving force within the ego is fear and, if you allow it, the ego will install fear into all areas of your life. Any greed, lust, intolerance, and anger are based in fear, and guess who’s behind it all? The ego. The ego knows all your weaknesses, your repressed desires, and your areas of denial, and it will use them against you, to knock you off your spiritual path.
Most of the doubts and worries you encounter are ego-based:
“Am I doing it correctly?”
“Am I on the right path?”
“Does this teacher know what he/she is talking about?”
Even simple thoughts like, “I don’t have enough time” or “When will the meditation be over” have been subtly slipped in by the ego
Now this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use your common sense but, when these types of thoughts or doubts arise, ask yourself, “Is this my Higher Self or my ego talking?” Maharishi Mahesh Yogi used to say, “When doubts arise, first doubt the doubter.” The doubter is usually the ego.
While your techniques themselves are effortless, as you progress on your path, it’s important to remain focused, vigilant, and disciplined in your approach to them. As long as you have a physical body, an ego will be with you. When the karma for this lifetime has been exhausted, the body ceases to exist and with it the ego. A new ego will be born with a new incarnation, again as a reflection of the karmic contract for that lifetime.
Even after Enlightenment, some trace of ego still remains. In the Vedas, this is called Lesha-Vidya or the “left over seeds of bad habits.” An enlightened teacher must be very aware of this so he/she doesn’t fall prey to spiritual pride and arrogance. In the early stages of Samadhi, the yogi may gain new and exciting qualities and yogic powers. If these are recognized as merely a part of the journey and treated with humility, he/she will progress to the higher levels of Samadhi. However, if they are used to control and manipulate, the ego takes over becoming like a “hungry ghost.” Such a yogi may gain temporary power and fame but won’t progress spiritually and will ultimately sow the seeds of his/her own downfall. This is why Vedanta tells us to, “Seek the company of those who seek enlightenment but run from those who claim to have found it.”
How to Manage the Ego
To manage the ego, then, you need to live your life consciously. Be aware of your choices and why you are making them. Be aware of the effects your choices have on others. There’s an Arab proverb which says:
The words of the tongue should have three gatekeepers.
Before words get past the lips, the first gatekeeper asks, “Is this true?” That stops a lot of traffic immediately. But if the words get past the first gatekeeper, there is a second who asks, “Is it kind?” And for those words that qualify here too, the last gatekeeper asks, “Is it necessary?”
You may have heard the expression that someone has a “big ego.” Actually, it’s the opposite. People who stamp around with their chests puffed out have very small egos that are fighting for their lives, like a cornered wild animal. Love your ego, play with it, have fun with it, make it your friend and do not take it seriously. Seriousness is the ego playing the victim. Teach your ego humility through selfless service and compassion. When you love your ego, it will expand and cease to feel threatened. When the fear is removed, the ego will take its rightful place and become your biggest supporter on the path to enlightenment.

CHLOASMA or pregnancy mask, emotional and metaphysical causes:



Chloasmas, also known as melasma or "pregnancy mask", are dark, brown or grayish spots that appear on the face especially during pregnancy. They usually appear on the cheeks, forehead, nose and upper lip, and less commonly, around the eyes.
Skin darkens to protect against sun contact. Symbolically the sun is associated with the father, the skin on contact and the face in our image. Therefore it is an attempt to avoid contact with the father, which affects our image.
Father conflict, contact and stain. The spots appear in areas where they give the sun (father) and mostly in pregnant women.
What conflict of contact do I have with my father or the father of my son, or with me as a father?
The conflict must be related to the contact, by excess, defect, nonexistent or by bad contact.
