My teacher Carlos Castaneda taught me this:

Our Organs Have Their Own Consciousness And We Can Talk to Them

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the departure of my dear teacher and guide Carlos Castaneda. I met him in the mid-nineties as a young doctor looking for a deeper meaning in my path as a healer to people.

My life brought me to him without looking for it.

Not long before, as a medical resident in Bariloche, Argentina, I had wanted to go in all the way into the medical knowledge. I come from a family of doctors and scientists, where hard work and dedication to the ethics of truth was a strong value.

our organs have their own consciousnessThanks to high grades, luck and daring, I managed to get into a unique and prestigious program where I was left as the front person in charge of the ER (Emergency Room) every four nights. It was an exciting and also daunting all-in immersion into hospital life that got me dealing with all kinds of medical issues and emergencies. I practically lived in the clinic, and assisted in trauma, strokes, heart attacks or child births.

I had the experience of dealing with life and death decisions, of seeing the mystery of the body healing miraculously and the humbling presence of death in my hands. Life was fast, and surprising. Yet, I missed the touch of a larger, more encompassing view.

In many occasions, the tools I had been given as a Western MD couldn’t help me; It could only take me so far and a more holistic view became a necessity.

One such day, during my night shift, a patient died on my watch.

He was staying overnight after a minor surgery and he developed an acute pulmonary edema that led to him to going into arrest. I moved him into the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and tried to resuscitate him, but I couldn’t. It later turned out that a key heart medication the patient needed had not been logged into his chart and was never given to him. He shouldn’t have died. The event caused me to deeply re-evaluate the meaning of my profession and life in general. Medical school did not give me the container for these situations. I even considered to quit medicine.

I left Argentina back to USA, my country of birth. Then, there, serendipity and fate made me meet Carlos Castaneda and everything changed in my life.

When I first met him, he invited me to lunch, at a local Cuban restaurant called The Versailles which he frequented. I remember that, when he invited me, he had said he wanted to know more about me, but I barely opened my mouth during lunch. He was very animated the whole time, and made me laugh so hard with his storytelling that my belly muscles ached badly. He had such a mesmerizing and charming presence and it absorbed me completely.

At the end, as we were walking towards the car in the parking lot, he came close and almost in a whisper said that the reason we were there that day was because I could be a bridge between the shamanism he had learnt from his teacher, don Juan Matus, and the world of health and medicine.

At the time, I had no idea what this meant, but his message of a higher intelligence and energy at play in everyday life came to fill exactly the void I had found in my regular medical life. I was hooked.

A direct apprenticeship that meant being open to new ideas.

Over time, Carlos Castaneda became a mentor and guide. He said I could not run away from my destiny and encouraged me to return to medicine. But he gave me the larger container, he opened up what was to me a new paradigm at the time, one which today, decades later, has emerged in science and in our collective understanding: that there is no such distinction between the mind and the body;

rather, that we are a network of energy and information crisscrossing in all directions between the mind and the body. Peptides and other biochemicals carry the messages of our thoughts and our emotions everywhere, perception affects behavior and behavior changes the very physicality of our brain and body, memories from our life experiences are stored in the organs and in our fascia and,

more than a defined, isolated individual, we are more like a cooperative of many voices including a majority of foreign DNA from a microbiome which gives us fundamental aspects of our identity such as our very personality traits, as a pioneering study from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) recently showed.

our organs have their own consciousnessEverything in us is changing and evolving, not isolated, but in deep resonance with our environment, such as the quality of the electro-magnetic field emitted by our hearts which can cause specific changes in the brains of the people around us.

We now know that it is a fact from research we can enter deep meditation states through practice and then these states can cause definitive changes in all our major regulatory mechanisms such as telomere length (a key biomarker for cell lifespan), inflammation cascades and cell repair. These and other behaviors can change the very expression of our genome through the epigenetic landscape that we now recognize as a highly fluid pluripotential environment in which our body lives.

What my teacher Carlos Castaneda introduced me to was this same viewpoint. It used different language but its syntax carried the same implications and conclusions. It enlarged the scope of possibilities of my human experience, and that of my patients. Modern science and ancient shamanistic principles and practices came together into a similar unit of life: Our internal body-mind world.

What it means ‘I can talk to my internal organs.’

One practice that Carlos Castaneda taught me was “talking to my organs.” The idea was simple: just as there is the overall me, there are also many smaller individual aspects of that me, represented in my tissues and organs themselves. In the dynamic world of information within my body, there is a distinct consciousness in each of my organs. Our organs store memories and also contain information. And they can talk to us. The big me can go in and establish a dialogue with the different organs and tissues.

In over twenty years of teaching workshops and clinical practice, I have found this to be very accurate and of highly practical value to understand ourselves and what our bodies are experiencing.

At times, I would see Castaneda ‘talking to his liver’, for example. He would talk to it in a very kind way, thanking it for all the work it took on. He would caress his ribs right where the liver is, and also pause and take a moment to ‘listen’ to it.

More than 500 vital functions have been identified in each liver cell, 24/7. It is the organ that organizes and distributes our internal nutrients and resources. In our busy modern lives, it tends to get overburdened. It stores ‘excess’ material, not only physiologically but also in our Consciousness.

our organs have their own consciousnessOur stressors are ‘stored’ in the liver.

When our liver gets overwhelmed, it also gets tight, and interferes with other neighbor organs, such as our stomach and intestines, or our sense of calm in our heart.

Our organs can tell us a lot of things. For instance, a patient who came to treatment for severe constipation, had received standard help from doctors such as increasing fiber and exercise, stool softeners and even antidepressants, with weak results. During the consult, using guided imagery, we established a conversation ‘between his higher self and his colon’, and his colon told him that the reason it was holding its movement was because he was feeling stuck at work. He had a long term dispute with his business partner that wasn’t being resolved.

The colon was storing that emotional and perceptual component of his inner life.

He realized then that he had been very rigid in his position about the dispute and needed to move on. The day after he signed the dissolution papers he had a bowel movement and within a month he had his regular rhythm restored.

Another fascinating example of how our organs store information and life experiences, even highly specific and detailed stuff, was reported by Paul Pearsall, Ph.D., in his book The Heart’s Code. I heard about this account by Ron Hulnik, Ph.D., one of the founders of the prestigious program in Spiritual Psychology at the University of Santa Monica, where I am so excited to be currently taking a Certification. Pearsall, a clinical neuropsychologist in the Transplant Donor Department at the University of Arizona, describes how organ recipients take in memories and personality traits from the donor. He tells the case of a girl who had received a heart transplant from another girl who had been murdered. She soon began to have dreams and flashbacks of being murdered herself that eventually became so vivid and detailed that her mother reported it and it led the police to identify the actual murderer and prove the case in court. The implication of such an unequivocal event makes it undeniable that the organs themselves, independently, are capable of storing a high level of specificity of information.

How do I talk to my organs?

There are two steps and one rule to do this. our organs have their own consciousness

The first step is doing something to quiet the mind chatter and be present. This can be one minute focusing on our breathing, or even just one breath!

The second step is to turn our attention to a particular organ with an attitude of inquiry and establish a dialogue.

The rule is that when we ask a question, we have to be direct, as if we were talking to someone right in front of us, and then pause and wait for the very first thing that comes to mind, without preconditions. It might be a thought, an image or a memory. It might be the feeling of something that could become clear at a later time.

The rule means that it is spontaneous information that formulates in our Consciousness in the pause immediately after we address the question to the organ.

Sometimes, there doesn’t need to even be a question; all that seems to be needed is to turn our attention to the organ with the intention to see it and listen to it.

The Practice.

For the next moment, close your eyes and let your attention shift from the outer world to the inner world. You can simply let your body release any tension that it doesn’t need, right now.

In one sweep from head down to toes, just scan across your whole body with your attention and let each muscle relax, let each joint soften, letting all the nerves just open, the circulation and the skin open. And let your body do this at its own pace.

Now, open your inner eyes and go with your attention to the organ you want to talk to, listen to, or just hold space for. Allow yourself to use your full imagination and live it inside of you.

Have you been having any issues with the health of this organ? Connect to these symptoms, and specifically to the emotions that these symptoms arise in you. Stay attuned to these emotions for a moment. Don’t judge them or try to change them, just be with them.

Now, begin to talk to the organ, as if it was a person you are talking to. A person that is also you, or an aspect of you. Hold an attitude of appreciation, companionship and support. This part of you has been suffering and you want to be there for it. Lovingly express to the organ your support at this time. Talk to the organ as if it was your own 5-year old kid.

Ask simple, direct questions such as:

“Why are you in pain?”

“How does this relate to my life right now?”

“How can I help for you to feel better?”

“Is there anything I can do for you to stop this symptom?”

our organs have their own consciousnessRemember, don’t prejudge or discard whatever arises when you ask. Spend a moment or as long as you feel is right in this dialogue, or simply sit in the presence of the organ, holding your Consciousness there. 

When you are ready, say thank you to your organ for being available to you. Ask permission to further dialogue in the future. Come out at your own pace and immediately take count of the experience and of any information that came from it.

I highly recommended to write down this information.

That’s it.

Simplicity itself!

What I Learned in my Encounter With La Venerable , leader of the Mayan Solar Tradition

Dear Community,

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to teach Being Energy® movements at a special event guided by Nah Kin, la venerable abuela in Merida Yucatan. Nah Kin, La Venerable, is the leader of the Mayan Solar Tradition and for the last 10 years she has been fully dedicated to downloading the Codes of the Maya New Era. Trained by her own grandmother in the Mayan knowledge and arts, La Venerable is the real thing.  I felt it. It felt like a calling.  Meeting her was something that I had been, without knowing it, waiting on for several years: a connection to the knowledge of the Mayan Solar Tradition.

I arrived to Cancun in the early afternoon on Monday and took a bus for 4 hours, arriving  in Merida just before midnight. I was delighted to share this trip with Ariadna, my chaperone who joined me in the adventure. The next day we were both ready early and arrived at “Casa Del Sol” with enthusiasm and purpose.

La Maestra Loly received us with warmth affection and La Venerable Nah Kin made us feel at home. The event was focused on women, to recall the divine feminine essence byNah Kin connecting to our wombs and to the energy of the Sun, as a source of energy and as a source of consciousness. Oh what a delight!

There were many guided visualizations and meditations involving the image of the Golden Egg as a source of creation and the image of the Golden dragon as a source of connection with the divine. We prayed to the Virgin of Guadalupe in her day, with candles and burning copal. We sang songs guided by La Maestra Chantal, daughter of Nah Kin. Nah Kin

The praying invoking Kinich Ahau the God Sun, the chanting, the spraying of a special balsam to clean my aura, the wearing of a yellow band on my forehead, and a red sash on my waist, all created an atmosphere of heightened awareness and purpose. I felt so connected to the knowledge and the rituals, as if I had been always there. It was my home, it was my people.  I felt so thankful.

La Venerable shared so much interesting information and knowledge, including  updating the ideas and beliefs our culture holds about menopause and its not-so-cool symptoms. La Venerable taught us all that this period is the moment where women become the butterfly that can really fly: it is a period for rebirth, for auto-generation. It is the precious moment to be free and to follow the inner calling for growth and for evolution.  La Venerable also talked about the Mayan Calendar and how December 21, 2012 marked the end of a longer period and the beginning of a new one and that 52 years after, by 2064 there is going to be a period of rebirth for humanity.

Nah KinLa Venerable shared an incredible amount of information. But, the most important for me was how she did it: with authenticity, honesty, vulnerability and deep love. Nah Kin

It was a true delight to guide all participants through sequences of energy passes including the Gathering Energy form and The Plumed Serpent: Kukulcan.  I am grateful for having lived through this unique experience.

All in all, I realized that much of what La Venerable teaches and what we teach in Being Energy® overlaps! Now, we are closely connected to her and all of the wonderful people that work with her.  We are looking forward to creating an event together soon!

Dreaming Forward,

Aerin

 

Добро пожаловать 2018 год! Как встретить канун Нового Года

«Мир непостижим. И мы тоже, как и все существа в этом мире »

Карлос Кастанеда

Какой мощный момент: мы переходим на Новый цикл, наполненный благодарностью и благоговением наших жизней. Какие уроки мы пережили в 2017 г.? Какие взлеты? Какие падения?

Мы перепросматривали и обдумывали наш опыт в 2017 г., и в прошлую субботу у нас было прекрасное БЕСПЛАТНОЕ ОНЛАЙН ПРАЗДНОВАНИЕ. Нажмите здесь, чтобы посмотреть видео, если вы его пропустили! Подробности можно прочитать здесь.

how to prepare for new yearsИ мы также направляем вам описание НОВОГОДНЕГО РИТУАЛА, которому наш учитель Карлос Кастанеда обучил нас много лет назад. Эта церемония, которая начинается в последние дни декабря и заканчивается, когда часы пробивают двенадцать ударов в полночь 31 декабря. Кастанеда рассказывал нам, что в полночь приходит свет Духа или Вселенной и «наблюдает за нами» – сила спускается на нас, и это очень мощный момент, чтобы присутствовать и осознавать – чувствовать и знакомиться с этим.


how to prepare for new years eveНепрерывная практика этого ритуала на протяжение последних 22 лет принесла нам чувство направления и вдохновила на раскрытие наших целей и намерений на Новый год, а также чувство связи с планетами и вселенной. Мы надеемся, что преимущества, которые дает ритуал, пробьются ростками через вашу жизнь, ваши отношения, ваше сообщество и мир.

Шаги:

1. Избавьтесь от старого перед Новым Годом. Начиная с 27 декабря и даже в течение дня 31 декабря, расчистите пространство в вашем доме. Наведите порядок, раздайте одежду, которую больше не носите, переберите шкафы и ящики, пропылесосьте полы, вымойте окна, полейте растения с чувством заботы и открытости. Цель всего этого – очистить дом как физически, так и энергетически. Есть 4 способа сделать это:

Выбросите вещи, которые вам не нужны или не приносят вам радости.

Отдайте вещи, позволяя им принести другим людям пользу, в то время как вы освобождаетесь от любых историй, связанных с этими вещами.

Оплатите свои счета, включая счета за коммунальные услуги, заложенности по кредитным картам, ипотеке и прочее. Предпримите все усилия, чтобы перейти в Новый цикл без непогашенных заложенностей.

Протрите пыль, вымойте свой дом или, по крайней мере, некоторые его части, например, спальню или рабочее место.

Переставьте мебель, измените расположение вещей в пространстве (фотографии, картины, цветы), чтобы оживить поток энергии вашего пространства.

2. 31 декабря, до полуночи, будьте за вашим письменным столом. Разберите счета и документы, освободите пространство, чтобы было удобно сидеть и напишите список своих проектов, намерений и сновидений в новом 2018 г.

3. Далее, возьмите карандаш или ручку, листок бумаги и будьте готовы составить список.

  • how to prepare for new years eveМысленно посмотрите на достижения в 2017 г. Что самое главное? Какие отношения вы создали? Что подошло к концу? Чему научились, чего достигли в отношении следующих областей:

    1. Здоровье
    2. Эмоции
    3. Мысли
    4. Работа
    5. Семья и сообщество
    6. Глобальное сообщество планеты Земля.
  • Запишите все это в список 2017 г., чтобы увидеть , что принес этот год и осознать свой опыт переходя в Новый Год. Обратите внимание, если во время записывания к вам будут приходить новые идеи.

4. На втором листе бумаги создайте новый список и назовите его 2018 г. Запишите, что вы хотите достигнуть или начать в Новом году. Подумайте о разных областях жизни:

how to prepare for new years eveСаморазвитие: чему новому я хочу научиться, принять в себе, исцелить в себе на физическом, ментальном, эмоциональном и энергетических уровнях?

Семья и друзья: какие отношения я хочу создать, какие отпустить, какие отношения нужно улучшить?

Работа: Люблю ли я то, что делаю? Что я могу изменить в 2018 г. для собственного процветания?

Здоровье: каким образом я могу лучше заботиться о себе в 2018 г., что именно мне нужно сделать для восстановления своей энергии?

Мой вклад в этот мир (мое наследие): какое ОДНО действие я могу совершить, чтобы помочь другим в том, в чем они нуждаются?

5. how to prepare for new years eveСделайте паузу. Вы расчистили пространство, посмотрели на уходящий год, записали свои сновидения и цели на следующий год. Теперь, когда у вас есть список, сделайте небольшой перерыв и займитесь текущими делами. Вы можете поставить музыку для создания атмосферы или немного потанцевать.

6. Около 23:30 вернитесь к вашему письменному столу (уже почти полночь!). Сядьте в тишине и поместите свое внимание на список 2018 г. – это то, что вы хотите видеть в наступающем году. Вы можете записать список шагов к своим целям, нарисовать как вы получаете работу своей мечты и т. д. Уделите этому время, пока не почувствуете, что вы соединились со всем этим, с вашим жизненным путем, со Вселенной… к тому времени, как часы уже пробьют полночь.

7. В полночь, в первые минуты Нового Года, позвольте волне вашего сновидения накрыть и поглотить вас.

how to prepare for new years eve

Когда мы устанавливаем наше совместное намерение, мы создаем лучшее для всех – для радости и роста, свободы, для создания смелых творческих проектов, для доброты ко всем окружающим. Мы празднуем вместе ваше становление!

Позвольте нашему свету и любови достигнуть ваших друзей, семьи, вашего сообщества и всего мира.

TEACHER’S EXPERIENCES: Transforming Fear into Real Power

I was so moved when Tom, Ari and Erika, our Being Energy® teachers called me last week to tell me about their successful event in Guanajuato, Mexico! They have been dreaming about guiding a Being Energy event in Mexico for several years but, they felt didn’t feel ready.transforming fear into real power

However, this year they decided to go for it! They said the Path with Heart classes on overcoming fear gave them the final push to make the decision and jump. They overcame the fear of failure, the fear of making mistakes, of being vulnerable, and of loosing face. They not only led a successful event, but they also loved and supported each other through the process unconditionally!

Tom, Ari and Erika’s victory reminded me of Carlos Castaneda. He supported me and others, encouraging us to learn, to explore and to experience moving from fear to real power.

Together, these three created a wonderful event for healing and energy restoration called “Bienestar Energético” – “Energetic Well-being” – a two-day Workshop in Guanajuato, Mexico. Guanajuato is a historic and picturesque city northwest of Mexico City.

BRAVO Tom, Ari and Erika! Thank you for inspiring us to keep overcoming fear and accessing the power within!

We love you!

Aerin and Miles

Here is a look at what they said about the event and some pictures they shared:

transforming fear into real power“For me, the fear that I am turning into power feels more like a kind of inertia, but one that has fear at the bottom. To explain: this cycle of classes has coincided almost exactly with the conceiving, promoting, arranging and carrying out of a live all-weekend Being Energy seminar, together with Erika and Ariadna, in my city of Guanajuato, Mexico. After my initial enthusiasm for the project, I begin to fear that it would not be successful, that people wouldn’t sign up, that I might disappoint them or my co-leaders. And my mind said, why bother? I’m fine just as I am, taking classes, giving occasional small classes. No risk, no big effort. So the resistance was a kind of inertia, that how I am now is good enough, but beneath was the fear that if I really reach for something more, it might not turn out well.

The first seminar day went from 9:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. That night I returned home in a very peculiar state. I was relaxed, communicative with my wife, tired and at the same time very alert. Above all I was quiet. I had given my very best, without any self-concern (or as little as I have so far experienced), I was totally stimulated and at the same time totally at peace. There was nothing I could add. I believe this is power, though very different from how I had conceptualized power before. This feeling continued through the end of the seminar. I am not don Juan or Carlos Castaneda or Aerin or Miles. I am just me, but if I can get out of the way by suspending my personal history and ego, my being can be a conduit for the spirit. In a sense, this disappearing becomes real power.

Hugs to all of you, my traveling companions!

Tom

“Our seminar in Guanajuato was wonderful, a dream where from the beginning we were collaborating and working without expectations, finding the best of our time and ourselves to share it, joining our differences in something that we welcomed with amazement .

A medieval hallway led to our living room, with a stave floor, large windows with a colorful view of transforming fear into real powerthe city. This room was filled with a large group of people who came to share and co-create this dream with us. The present spirit felt, everything flowed, we were happy, engaged in the common attempt to experience true well-being, that of the energetic body. There were new and experienced practitioners and all opened themselves to investigate within themselves to have new views of their daily lives, to be transformed little by little. It filled my heart with their feedback and the interest they showed. I am proud to have delivered from my heart something of myself so that this could be possible, every time I become more aware of how much we all need moments and spaces like that!

Our walk to Cerro de la Bufa on Sunday reminded me how powerful the mountains are around the city, full of minerals and silence. A strong wind was blowing towards us that helped us to take us on the wings of Tom’s guided meditation. I felt the sun and the warmth of others around me, I felt so much strength and happiness at that moment after two days of practice, sitting on top of the hill! It was the best time to be aware that the group is very powerful and that we are in a wonderful time and place together on this planet … Thank you for the support!”

Erika

“I ENJOYED EVERY MOMENT! And so it was … From the preparation, having the weekly meetings with Erika and Tom, I was opening my heart to this new adventure. It felt very harmonious at all times.

In my case I had only taught the Being Energy daily classes online, and I was a bit afraid to do it in person. Although I think teaching online for two years gave me the experience and confidence and once we started, I felt happy and connected with everyone.

At the time I accepted this challenge, I knew I had bought a ticket with no return. I felt connected with Tom and Erika, I was inspired by them too. We got along very well, planning the logistics for the event as well as what each of us wanted to teach and share. The process suddenly opened parts of my brain that re previously closed.

transforming fear into real powerI also learned to appreciate my friends and learn about who they are. Tom cleans his car of dry leaves before driving it. While I waited inside the car to go to the seminar the first day, I observed him with his soft duster, cleaning the windshield sheets with elegance, great delicacy and love.

That image helped me breathe and connect to myself. With the same delicated attention and care that he put on removing each leaf from the windshield of his car, I would like to put on each of the seminar participants, I thought, and on my own breathing.

So it was. This is how it vibrated. Erika’s voice guiding movements is beautiful and I’m sure, everyone felt connected to her.

The power of his thoughts towards us (Miles and Aerin) helped us find our best way to teach and pay attention to everything. Thank you!”

Dear Community ,

What a dream-like and wonderful experience we had last weekend in Schweibenalp!

schweibenalp retreat

We stayed at an incredibly unique center, located in the midst of the beautiful Swiss Alps, 4,000 feet high! It was the perfect place to restore our energies and get in touch with our dreaming body, our energy body.

We practiced standing sequences of movements, emphasizing breathing and the opening the chest area. Then, we practiced movement sequences while laying on a mat, focusing on lengthening our connective tissue and recalibrating our nervous system.

We also meditated and spent time connecting to our breath, to our source of consciousness, and to our hearts. Another highlight from the retreat was the food! We shared delicious homemade organic foods that included vegetables from the Center’s Permaculture Garden. schweibenalp retreatschweibenalp retreat

We were blessed to experience different temperatures and  weather changes throughout the weekend. We arrived to light rain. The next day was sunny and warm. We just had to take a  walk through the forest to a magical green lake!

Fog moved in the next day and we spent the day inside a cloud. Literally!

Some participants experienced “Lucid Dreaming” for the first time, a state of being conscious and aware in one’s dreams.
Other participants mentioned that in the past, they weren’t able to remember their dreams. But,  after the first night at the workshop they were able to remember their dreams clearly.

At the end of our weekend, we were moved by listening to feedback from our participants, including Michael who said the experience has been “life-transforming” for him.

After taking so many workshops in the past, I finally feel that I do belong here. In the past I felt isolated. I used to be loyal to others, but never to myself. Now, I’ve set a new intention for myself: to be loyal to myself and to my heart always. I can feel the change within me already and it feels great.schweibenalp retreat

It’s truly amazing to be a part of our wonderful community. For those of you who missed our Schweibenalp retreat and those who joined us, we’ve got something special planned for you next year!

Save the date for July 27th- 30th! We will be hosting a four day workshop in Worcester, U.K. to explore our legacies.

What kind of legacy do you want to leave? What legacy has been left before you? These are the kinds of questions we will explore.

Together, we will  acknowledge the gifts of our ancestry, unleash wisdom buried at the core of our life experiences, deepen our knowledge and connect to our higher power. Get more information here!

How to reduce stress from our challenging political environment

As a mind-body movement educator, dancer, author, international workshop leader and integrative medicine leader, I know just how strong the connection between our mind, body, energy and feelings is.

The past few weeks have been particularly tense in our communities, due to our President’s divisive comments and behavior.

From failing to reprove white supremacist and neo-nazi thought in the wake of a rally that left at least one dead in Charlottesville, to standing by his comments at an Arizona rally, our President may have you thinking: How far is this going to go?

Regardless of our political affiliation, what’s going on in our country affects all of us. We are witnessing the fire of division, racism, and violence being stoked over and over by our President. Additionally, the seeds for violence are getting out of hand and now, are coming to California.

But, there is good news. We can take control of our minds, bodies and energy to combat stress and bring love back into our bodies.

How the U.S. President’s Behavior is Affecting Your Health and What to do About it

I wrote this Huffington Post article to encourage everyone to take hold of the energy within and be proactive about managing stress.  The constant fight or flight response caused by the political and social environment we are living in can be a major stressor. Luckily, we have the tools within ourselves to overcome our stress.

I’ve outlined the ways in which stress affects our bodies. In the article, I share simple tips you can integrate into your daily routine to decrease your stress.

Remember that fear responses come without an invitation, but we don’t have to allow them to stay. You CAN do something about it, right NOW. Stay vital and aware!

Кецалькоатль – Обнимая Свет и Тьму внутри нас

Greetings From Our Journey to Teotihuacan!

Привет из нашего путешествия в Теотиуакан!

В период с 10 по 12 марта мы провели семинар в Теотиуакане, одном из крупнейших и древнейших городов в культуре Мезоамерики. Мы начали путешествие в отеле, расположенном рядом с археологическими раскопками, практикуя движения и дыхательные техники для обновления наших тел, снятия стресса и усталости. Мы перезагрузили голову, установив четкое намерение на предстоящий уикэнд. Затем мы увидели существующие в нас блоки и ограничивающие идеи, связанные с темой денег, и переформатировали их. Таким образом, мы создали пространство внутри себя, чтобы позволить творческой энергии течь, реализуясь в новых проектах нашей повседневной жизни.

Рано утром в субботу мы вышли в тишине к пирамиде Солнца, самой большой из трех пирамид Теотиуакана и третьей по величине пирамиде в мире, имеющей размеры в основании 220 на 230 м и высоту 63 м. Эта пирамида построена около 2 тыс. лет назад и в ней обнаружено более 70 тыс. исторических ценностей. Все время, пока мы шли пребывая в тишине, мы повторяли свои индивидуальные намерения оставаться сфокусированными  и открытыми для знания, которое город Теотиуакан может передать нам.

Моя мантра наполнила меня радостью и спокойствием: «Я вдыхаю и выдыхаю божественный свежий воздух жизни, пребываю в лучезарном здоровье и благополучии и растворяю ограничивающие шаблоны и интерпретации, полностью освобождая себя для наивысшего блага всех заинтересованных.”

Ночь перед дождем, и воздух на наших лицах ощущался свежим и чистым, когда мы шли по Аллее Смерти. Я продолжаю смотреть на лица участников группы, омываемые солнечными лучами и излучающие радость и жизненность.
Перед восхождением на Пирамиду Солнца, у ее основания, мы призвали связь с нашими дедами, отцами и мужской линией наших семей для принятия и освобобождения всего, требующего исцеления, а также для очищения мужской энергии внутри нас.

One of the participants and Being Energy Teacher, Crisólogo from Michoacan, shared that he experienced the walk as though he was walking toward his death—a part of him that he needed to acknowledge and let go in order to move forward in his work. He was ready for his fears to die and found himself crying as he walked to the pyramid. When he got to the pyramid, he realized he was ready to take the next step to fully work as a healer and instructor of Being Energy.

Один из участников и инструктор Быть Энергией – Крисолог из Мичоакана, поделился, что во время прогулки он ощущал, что как будто идет к своей смерти – часть его, которую ему нужно было признать и отпустить, чтобы двигаться вперед и реализовать себя в своей работе. Он был готов к страху смерти и по дороге к пирамиде ощутил себя плачущим. Когда он добрался до нее, он понял, что готов сделать следующий шаг, позволяющий ему в полной мере стать целителем и инструктором Быть Энергией.

Это был такой «подвижный» опыт чествования нашей мужской энергии, энергии «творения и проявления вовне», живущей внутри нас. Мы чтили это внутри себя тогда и сейчас.                

Оттуда мы пошли в тишине к Пирамиде Луны, пирамиде меньшей по размеру, но столь же значимой по смыслу. Некоторые называют ее Тенан, что на Науатле означает «мать или защитный камень». Пирамида Луны представляет собой структуру, более древнюю, чем Пирамида Солнца. Структуру возникшую за 200 лет до нашей эры. В нее входит большая площадь с несколькими небольшими строениями, вместе образующими крест. Внутри нее мы призвали внутреннюю мать каждого из нас, женскую питающую энергию. Мы медитировали на вершине пирамиды, обратившись на юг, к Аллее Мертвых, с целью принятия и сострадания к себе и миру.

Мы вернулись в отель, чтобы еще больше интегрировать опыт, полученный нами во время путешествия к пирамидам Солнца и Луны, и объединить внутри и снаружи нас дополнительные силы мужского света и женской темноты. Мы размышляли над этим в течение всего субботнего вечера. Между сессиями мы отдыхали в бассейне отеля, наслаждаясь его замечательной мексиканской кухней.

В воскресенье мы праздновали объединение наших светлых и темных сил, медитируя в храме Кецалькоатля, который представляет собой союз тьмы и света в форме змея, расправляющего крылья для полета.

Мы танцевали и двигались в свете и темноте, объединяя все, что мы узнали в нашем путешествии к Пирамидам Солнца и Луны, принимая обе энергии через движение.
Мы закрыли мероприятие в воскресенье днем практикой созерцания, глядя в глаза друг друга и видя Кецалькоатля и Нагваля! Это был красивый и трогательный путь завершить практику в Теотиуакане и продолжить наши путешествия обратно домой, наполненные чувством благоговения, благодарности и любви.

How do we stand up for ourselves and others when we are cowering in fear?

Two days ago, we started a new cycle of our series of Path With Heart classes called “Overcoming Fear,” and we already started experiencing a warm wave of courage and love running through our bodies!

Nelson Mandela said, May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears,” and that is what we are actively and daily practicing at Being Energy.

May your intention for 2017 be based on your hopes and dreams. If you already wrote your intentions for this year, hold them high up and take steps towards their fulfillment. If you didn’t write your intention yet, then READ BELOW before writing them down:

Fear is the underlying force for procrastination and postponing dreams, not finishing projects, and having meaningful relationships. Our inner fears are being fed by the outside world.

In the world today we are getting more and more negative news—the political representation of our country now seems to want to imbue us with fear, keep us paralyzed  and feeling powerless. So, what to do?

This is what we did in class last Sunday:

1-We turned on the light on fear

energy_life_sciences_path_heart_xxii-pptx

2-We reminded ourselves of our Warriorship Training

energy_life_sciences_path_heart_xxii-pptx-1

3-We identified top common fears to us all

energy_life_sciences_path_heart_xxii-pptx-2

4- We differentiated between inspiring and paralyzing fears

energy_life_sciences_path_heart_xxii-pptx-3

5- And we courageously stood up, breathed deeply and took an action towards overcoming fear!

We encourage you to do the same!

We are standing up with all, embracing all feelings and facing the oncoming time!

Welcome 2017! What to Do on New Year’s Eve

A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting. ~ Carlos Castaneda

This is a marvelous time. You have the opportunity to act from intent and create your dreams.

The following ritual is one that Castaneda gave to us many years ago, and it is something that we do at the end of each year without fail. We share it with you now to help you unfold a magical year ahead. It is a ceremony that starts during the last days of December, and finishes when the clock strikes midnight on January 1st. Why not give it a try and see what happens?

We hope that the benefits ripple out through your life, your relationships, your community and the world.

The steps are these:

  1. Clear out the old before the New Year.  On December 29 and 30, and even throughout the day on December 31, clear up some space in your home. Remove clutter, donate clothing that you aren’t using anymore, clean out and organize cabinets and drawers, and vacuum your floors; clean your windows and water your plants—all with a feeling of openness and readiness. The aim is to clean your home physically and energetically. There are four essential ways to do this:
    • Throw things away that are not needed or that are not bringing you joy
    • Give things away, letting those things bring something to someone while freeing you of any associated history with the objects
    • Dust off, wipe and wash your home, or at least a selected part of it, such as your bedroom or desk area
    • Rearrange things; change the placement of furniture, artwork and/or other objects to revitalize the energy flow of your space(s)
  2. On December 31, before midnight, attend to your desk or writing space. Organize bills and papers, and clear space so that you can comfortably sit to write a list of dreams and projects for the New Year.
  3. Next, take a pen or pencil and piece of paper, and get ready to make a list.
    • Mentally review what dreams and projects you were able to accomplish in 2015. What things stood out? What new relationships have you established? What came to a close? What new things have you learned, or insights have you gained with respect to your:
      1. Health
      2. Emotions
      3. Thoughts
      4. Family and community
      5. Larger global community of planet Earth
    • Now list all of these on a piece of paper labeled 2016. The idea is to review and distill what 2016 brought to you, and write it down so that you can be consciously aware of these experiences going into the New Year. Notice as you write if new insights or ideas come to you.
  4. Take a second piece of paper to start a new list. Name the list 2017, and write down what you want to accomplish or see unfold in this New Year. It might help to think of the categories of:
    • Personal development: What new things do I want to learn, what do I want to accept about myself, what do I want to heal in myself?
    • Family and friends: What relationships do I want to commit to, what relationships do I need to let go of, what relationships do I need to heal?
    • Work: Am I loving what I do? What can I change in 2017 to thrive?
    • Health: How do I plann to take better care of myself in 2017, what specific actions will I take to restore my energy?
    • My legacy and contribution to the larger world: What ONE action can I do to help others in need?
  5. Take a pause. You’ve cleared space, reviewed the year that’s passing and set forth dreams and goals for the year ahead. Now that you have your lists, take a little break to attend to any responsibilities or other commitments.
  6. At around 11:30 p.m., return to your writing space (it’s almost midnight!) Sit in silence for a moment and put your attention on the things on your 2017 list—those things that you want to see unfold in the New Year. You may even want to write an outline of what you would like to do, or draw a picture of yourself getting the job of your dreams, etc. Sit with it as long as you like, making sure you feel connected with it all, with your personal life path, and with the Universe by the time the clock strikes midnight.
  7. At midnight, on this first moment of the New Year, let the wave of your dreams wash over you.

Carlos Castaneda would tell us that, at midnight, the light of the Spirit or Universe comes and “watches us”—a force descends upon us, and this is a very powerful moment to be present and aware—to feel it and become acquainted with it.

Mountain-Sunrise-Wallpaper-DesktopAs we set our collective intentions, we hold best wishes for you all—for your joy and growth; for your freedom; for your daring, for your creation of new, inspiring projects; and for your kindness to all those around you. We celebrate together your becoming!

May our light and love radiate out to our friends, families, communities, and to the whole world.

Buenos Aires – “Deep and light without being serious or superficial.”

“Aerin, can I be honest with you?” – a participant of our recent seminar approached me in a break a couple of hours after our workshop had started. “I have lots of judgments right now. I am judging everyone here and I am also judging the workshop. I am sorry, I just want to be honest with you.”

I took a deep breath and smiled. I looked at her eyes—I liked her immediately. I wanted to tell her that we all judged all the time and that she was going to feel better after practicing the recapitulation exercise that we were about to do, but I stopped myself. I was avoiding the issue. Instead, with curiosity I said “tell me about it. What is the content of your judgments?”

“I think what we are doing is superficial and that it lacks depth. And I also think that what people are sharing is also superficial,” she said.

I looked at her bright large honey eyes. I thought she was smart and beautiful. There are so many beautiful people in Argentina. Buenos Aires has the largest amount of psychotherapists per capita in the world, and the same goes for theaters and cafes. There is an emphasis in philosophy and in the arts that exhudes from the streets. I love walking and meeting people everywhere. She reminded me of the best of Argentina.

The themes presented at the workshop were about how we handle money, sex, and old age. We were exploring cultural and family beliefs passed on through generations that hinder our ability to handle money with impeccability. Some of the participants shared their struggles with money and their ability to give and receive in vulnerability and openness. Mostly, for us women, how to produce our own money has been a struggle for hundreds of years.

“You may consider that the superficiality that you judge in others, you may also judge in yourself. What other judgments do you have about you, that are not allowing you to be fully present and engaged today?” I asked her in a loving voice.

She paused and looked at my eyes. “I don’t know. I cannot stop it,” she replied. “I don’t know if I want to come back tomorrow.” She added.

“It is ok, whatever you decide to do is ok” I told her. “The important point here is your relationship with yourself, not what I do or what others do. How are you taking care of yourself as you become aware of these ingrained patterns that are emerging. How are you loving yourself?”

The next day she came back. Phew!, I was glad—and she opened up, like a flower. She shared with the group she was mistakenly seeing as light and superficial. She said that she learned we can be deep and handle deep issues with lightness. Her smile illuminated the room. I thanked her for her honesty in the first place, and for sharing her learning process.

This is exactly what happens at our workshops—participants learn what they need to learn, they figure out in their own time, with their own uniqueness. We support individuals to find out their own resources and abilities, and we love each one of them as they do their process.

The workshop in Buenos Aires was powerful beyond measure. Participants came from Buenos Aires, from many other provinces and even from Chile and Mexico.

We identified, acknowledged and released judgments and fears about money, sex and old age. We sat down in silence. We held hands and prayed together. We did lots of energy passes. We sang, and we danced together.

Miles and I are moved and grateful for such unique experience. The commitment of participants to work their issues and free themselves from misinterpretations and the depth of their sharing touched our hearts deeply.

Below, please find some of their feedback after the workshop.

We look forward to seeing you in Teotihuacan in March 10-12, 2017.

May you have a peaceful and heartfelt Holiday Season, surrounded by your loved ones,

Aerin Alexander

“Thank you very much for your presence and for what you provided us in this Workshop. I loved the movements of the morning and the recapitulation in the afternoon, was very productive, we made a good team the 3 of us we participated and we drew very powerful conclusions. Also the movements to strengthen the pelvic floor and the awareness about our energetic nature, was a much appreciated info.

Love and thanks,”

Maria del Carmen

“The seminar is just settling in me and it is difficult to explain in words because the real pearls are physical understandings, the physical sensation of what a belief is and how simple it is to disarm it and the great gift was the after: Innocence that Leave it alone, wow.

I emphasize the love, the love that you transmit, the care, the elixir of Miles and the oil of Aerin whenever I use them I imagine them preparing them. All beautifully and all carefully handled.

I learned to stop sitting on my lower back and sacrum and instead to sit on my sit bones! What a difference! I loved the tennis ball to open the fascia at the sole of the feet and the gentle jumps on the heels to lift up the energy!  And the wonderful pelvic exercises and dancing passes.

Hugs from Guanajuato”

Margarita

“The Gathering Energy series, gained depth when you explained details I had never noticed online. Miles and Aerín executed it with their own variations and it was very rich and interesting. The stretching exercises with my legs rejuvenate me!

The stalking exercises done in three parts were plunging us into our memories and thoughts. Talking to our beliefs was shocking to me and my fellow students.” Pablo.

“I stayed with so much freshness in the body that I set out to practice every day, and I just have a partner at work who also practices. We are getting together every day to make passes … even if it’s 20minutes !

Thank you,”
