“Esta fue mi primera participación en talleres de Being Energy y quiero expresar mi gratitud. Muchas gracias al Dr. Reid y a Aerin por su generosidad; y también extiendo mi gratitud a todos los involucrados en la organización: Angela, Lorena y todos los instructores de Being Energy. Regresé a casa en Chile con nuevas opciones de pensamiento y acción, y un nuevo concepto del tiempo.” – Claudio

Argentina featured“Para mí fue la primera vez que participé en un evento de este tipo, y siento que fue extremadamente benéfico. Durante la práctica y en los dias posteriores me llegó un sentimiento de calma y confianza. Durante el ejercicio de recapitulación estaba un poco reticente de compartir mi experiencia con otra persona, pero cuando de hecho lo hice se sintió muy bien. ¡Me gustaría tener más información sobre las clases de Being Energy! Agradezco mucho a Miles, y a los otros instructores y participantes. ¡Fue perfecto! – Jimena

 

Argentina sharing“Me encantó el taller, y agradezco la generosa práctica. El día después del taller me sentí asentada, con un sentido de mayor espacio, y con mucha energía disponible, que fue duradera y es diferente de lo que he experimentado antes. Me interesa continuar con estas prácticas. – Maria del Carmen

Argentina movement“En primer lugar, muchas gracias, fue un placer para mí asistir. Sentí el poder de la energía de un grupo practicando, y los descansos que tomamos después de que los pases energéticos y la meditación guiada me condujeron a un estado de paz profunda. Un cariñoso saludo a todos.” – Mariana

 

¡Felicidades, Valery! Una Nueva Vida en el Mundo

¡Una nueva vida en el mundo! Uno de nuestros maravillosos maestros BE acaba de traer una hija al mundo. Elizabeth nació a finales de noviembre. Mamá Valery escribe:

baby feetTuve unos maravillosos 9 meses de embarazo y di a luz el 28 de noviembre de 2015 a una niña encantadora, Elizabeth. Mi práctica de Being Energy fue muy importante durante mi embarazo. Todos los viernes en Moscú, por 9 meses, practiqué junto con un grupo. La práctica y el apoyo de los miembros de mi grupo me ayudaron a sentirme sana, me dieron fuerzas para participar en actividades profesionales durante mi embarazo y me ayudaron a llevar una vida activa e incluso a nadar. El nacimiento de mi hija también fue asombroso, luminoso y lleno de emociones positivas.

Me gustaría agradecer a Valentine, Kate Paul, Masha, Cirilo, Marina Julia, Andrew Olga y Arina por el apoyo, amor y calidez durante este período de mi vida. Aerin, quiero decirte muchas gracias por tu atención a mis retos y tus consejos.

Deseo a todos nuevos sueños y descubrimientos.

Teaching BE: Sharing Magical Moments

Our Community: Luis Alonso shares his experience of teaching BE

Luis reflects on a Being Energy class he just taught to a group of students.
The experience of transmitting energy passes is very pleasant and mysterious.

I always am in wonder at the vibration generated in the group, as well as the possibility of opening, through practice, a space for inner silence. I remain hopeful that the people who attend my classes achieve that cubic centimeter of chance that don Genaro talked about—that second of silence that allows you to stop the world and change your point of view.

luis class on floor

Two hours of class can seem like a short time or a long time. It depends on your perspective.

One second of intensity may be sufficient to turn the wheel of time. Inevitably, I link my teaching experiences with the Being Energy workshop on the Wheel of Time, which made a big impression on me. This choice of holding or moving body tension, of letting ego control you or finding freedom and relaxation spirit.

I hope that people who attended this class came away with the idea that it is possible to move with consciousness and freedom, that energy passes are not mechanical movements, but life and energy in expression.

A Path Unfolds: Lirio’s Story

Hello. I am Tania Quiroz, known as Lirio Díaz, and I live in Xalapa, in the State of Veracruz, Mexico.

I was born in Mexico City and lived there for many years, which is why it is a place that I love and go back to every chance I get.Lirio_Xalapa_2

I have lived in Xalapa for several years. It is a town that embraced me and allowed me to start building dreams and projects that I had envisioned for a long time, which started growing once I came here. This is a beautiful city that lies among mountains, with plenty of green areas.

Once, when I was a child, I was next to my small bookshelf and I figured that I would love to have lots of books around me. Just picturing this filled me with joy. It made me feel that I had company and shelter. It was one of the first times that I felt the touch of that energy outside of us that enables you to dream, imagine, and that clears the way before you.

Lirio_Xalapa_1Since I was in elementary school, and all the way through high school, I always felt connected with the stories in the books—fiction in particular—and it was easy for me to discuss their contents with others.

It was also in high school that I read Carlos Castaneda’s books, and they had a strong impact on me. It was like saying, “Of course! That’s it!” and feeling relieved and happy about something being proved that you knew inside, but which you could not voice. That something, to me, was to feel that life had a purpose and that it is worth living.

From that moment on, I applied in my daily life what I had understood from the books. I can say that it always brought a sense of more calm and confidence to my actions. When I learned the energy movements, years later, I committed to practicing them with great delight.

Lirio_and_StudentsBack to my dreams and projects, it was thanks to a dear friend, who suggested that I started giving workshops about short stories for children and teenagers, that reading was revealed to me as a means to share with others, as well as a source of income.

I enjoyed teaching workshops for children. I learned much from them; from their innocence, their intelligence, creativity and sense of humor.

I graduated as a psychologist, and wrote a paper about reading as a support tool for teenagers. My idea was to keep offering these workshops in schools, but something did not fit entirely in that plan.

It was then when I attended my first Being Energy workshop in Teotihuacan, and I also took the Module 1 Teacher Training. There I found the energy needed for the project that I really wanted: teaching self-improvement classes in which I included physical movements performed with awareness, reading and psychology. Movement was the missing piece in the puzzle, and once I realized it, I could not imagine a full session without it.

Lirio_MovementThis project is still being nourished by the support network that Being Energy represents. I learned a lot from teaching online classes, and my understanding of the movements and the body was grounded in a deeper way. I also found myself experiencing great physical and emotional well-being.

Taking the leap to the online platform was also a great opportunity, because now there’s a big flow of information going through it, and more people are coming to it. It is the platform that I currently use most to teach my Being Energy and self-improvement classes (via Skype).

Lirio_ThankYouI am very grateful to Aerin and Miles and to the entire Being Energy community for opening this wonderful path of learning, well-being and awareness.

Thank you for reading my story!
Lirio

 

the Flow: BE Teachers Recapitulate in Rishikesh

Unbounded energy moves in strong and unpredictable ways. We’re always inspired to hear about BE teacher experiences around the world, and joyfully received news from Ena and Gammadian about the week-long Recapitulation Retreat they just held in India. ~ Aerin and Miles

Women_sitting_at_the_ghat_on_the_banks_of_Ganges,_RishikeshEna and Gammadian write:

“[The Rishikesh Recapitulation Retreat] is an intimate group and very powerful for everyone going through the process of recapitulation of our lives. This morning we welcomed the sun on the bank of the Ganga river practicing the movement sequences, Flow, calling inner silence and bathing in the river. The Indian people believe that when you immerse yourself in the water three times, the Ganga washes away all your sins. This intent is very supportive of what we intend for ourselves in this retreat.

ganges sunriseTomorrow we will be taking part in a local fire ceremony and Aarti (a song of gratitude to the Ganga) on the riverbank. Then we will visit some magic waterfalls in the mountains and a sacred cave of the Rishi Vaishist where we can practice inner silence.”

gathering at the gangesThis retreat followed an annual Karma Ling celebration in India. Gammadian tells that at the core of the program was Being Energy with three teachers. They practiced the Sword Form and Rallying the Dreaming Attention, along with Glistening in Dreaming, and had around 35 people for most sessions.

As Ena and Gammadian and other BE teachers tell us, teaching Being Energy is richly rewarding. Ena says, “Throughout this year, I have been teaching Being Energy to many people in weekly classes, individual sessions and workshops and taking part in the BE Skilled classes has been a valuable tool for me to learn, practice and grow.”

Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in our new BE Skilled! online workshop on September 26, followed by an online Module 2 Teacher Training program. We know you’ll be glad you jumped in!

temple at rishikeshEna also shared about a series of Being Energy classes that she and Gammadian recently taught during a yoga festival in the English countryside, “A lot of people joined our classes and every day we had people coming to thank us for sharing this gift of spirit and giving us feedback of how they liked the movements, how they felt energized after the practice like they never felt energized after any other practice before. A few of them told us they may have found a practice they wanted to follow for life. It felt so rewarding to have this exchange and to feel a part of something bigger than us. We came back from this festival full of love, energy and new inspirations.”

A Story of Confidence: Dr. Barbara Vencelj and BE

Note: Barbara will teach with us in Amsterdam! We are grateful to have her join us for our October workshops there, where she will be available to help you integrate your health issues and concerns with the tools you learn in the workshop.

Barbara_Vencelj_2This is my story of confidence. It revealed itself during the BE workshop in Italy this spring and now I am sharing it with you dear reader. I admit to having the same fear and lack of confidence that this story is about while writing this, but when I connect with the earth supporting me and sky inspiring me, I can let the words flow, and the story tell itself.

I am happy to feel aligned with confidence in my life—most of the time. I feel safe to travel around, admire the magical world and connect with other people, animals, water, mountains, trees and things I encounter along the way, and to breathe in and out freely. This feeling of safety and being accepted comes from my family, and I’ve also found it from the earth, as it supports me in every step I make, and the sky and stars that keep drawing out my dreams.

bv_antelopeIf I close my eyes and think of confidence, an image of my father pops out. His working hands—strong brownish hands—and a smile on his face, he seemed able to tackle any task around the house and garden you can imagine. He fixed things with an ease and joy that was contagious. Whenever something broke—car, bike, washing machine, fence, roof, you name it—he could mend it. If there was a mathematical task, if a neighbor, a friend, mum, my brother or I needed a hand, he was there. With a sparkle in his eyes and light around of focused attention, he would accomplished his task, confidently and with sobriety. It was like something bigger supported him. Earth and sky.

I guess some of this confidence and kindness came to me through him.

bv_mountainsI chose to become a medical doctor, not really knowing why. I naturally want to help others in need. When I was a kid, if another kid was injured when we were playing, I cleaned and bandaged the wound and gave them a hug. I could do it with ease and love at the same time. I wasn’t afraid of seeing blood and damaged tissues. I could help with a confidence and calmness I cannot explain. That is why I became an emergency doctor, so that I could help and be with people in the worst moments, to act fast, with sobriety and calm to help a person out of danger. My intent, beyond offering treatment, is to mostly give comfort to others and be present as kind and loving human by their side… to hold their hand, listen, smile, and maybe help take the fear away in the scary environment of an ambulance or helicopter.

After ten years of being an emergency doctor, I realize that this is my deeper purpose…not only to ease pain, treat a wounded body and resuscitate hearts, but to give a smile, hold a person in one of their worst moments, give affection in the dark night and acknowledge and salute the spirit in a wounded or dying body—to see the spirit of a person and be beside them…that is my purpose. Today I feel the support of mother Earth and I know infinity holds me. It is my purpose. I am an expression of infinity, one who helps others to feel better, one who connects with others in a supportive, kind and loving way.

bv_helicopterConfidence: A key of wellbeing. One aspect of this inside of me is the feeling that I can act with sobriety in every situation. I studied and practiced and trained for years to acquire medical knowledge and skills. Most of the books I read are medical books, and I dedicate a lot of time to study. It brings me joy.

About five years, I joined Being Energy. Connecting with Aerin and Miles and the family of BE people, my perspective widened, and my awareness grows. Like a tree, rooted in the earth that listens to the stars, aligned with the intent of infinity. I have found out that my purpose and confidence is not a matter of my ego, but something bigger, living inside and outside of me. I feel that infinity holds and the earth supports me. Being confident is to be aligned with the force that moves the world around us, and to acquiesce to what my come.

Now every time we rush in an ambulance or helicopter to the scene of an accident, I consciously inhale deeply through my feet upward for support from the earth, and open my heart and crown to align with the universe…and I pray to do it right and well and acquiesce and let infinity hold us.

bv_energy_passIts hardest thing of all for me and also for other doctors is to take care of and to resuscitate a seriously ill or injured child. The immense stress and responsibility and fear of losing a child is scary and heavy.

A child is not just a small adult from the medical point of view. A child has a different physiology, different size and weight, different dosage of medicine…and as a doctor, you must be prepared, but there are some things that it isn’t possible to prepare for, and the fear of being responsible for a child’s life is so big that something bigger has to support it. I am here to do the best I know how, to do it in loving way and to be open for support.

It was an early Sunday afternoon on an ordinary busy day in our emergency department, when we got a call that one-and-a-half-year-old toddler had fallen from a second-story window and was laying on the road without signs of life. I felt a shiver go down my spine.

Fear squeezed my heart and brain for a moment… I remember as we were driving to the scene, I started praying for the child. I breathed in the breath from the earth, collecting confidence from the earth and let it travel through my body, through my lover discs to the heart and up to the brain. The breathing brings me to the here and now, and helps me connect to the feeling of trust and confidence. A trust in the universe and in something much bigger and a trust that it all will be ok, as it has to be. As we were driving to the child, something came to calm my mind and heart so that I could easily concentrate on things like calculating the child’s weight, proper dosages of medicine, etc.

bv_emergency_crewWe arrived at the scene, and I jumped out of car to the child lying on the ground. This moment was a moment of heightened awareness; it felt like there was a bubble of silence around me and the child,. I didn’t notice the noise of the crowd gathering around us or anything else; we were in a cocoon of light. The world stopped for the moment, and I saw the child breathing in and out, his heart still beating…he is alive…

Feelings of confidence and affection, acknowledgement of fear and trust all became very present at that moment. In the next minutes as we resuscitated the child, I felt the alignment of the universe and the intent that this child is going to live. We were so present, efficient, and the action went with ease and fluidity… we stabilized the child and took him to the hospital… And the child lived.

Thank you,
Barbara Vencelj

Cambia, Suelta y Libera tu Historia: Enseñando en el Camino con Corazón

Como instructor de Being Energy, a menudo tengo que enfrentar todos mis miedos e inseguridades cuando empiezo a planear una clase. Me encuentro preguntando: ¿Quién soy yo para estar ofreciendo instrucción a los demás en algo tan escurridizo y difícil de hablar sobre cómo girar la rueda del tiempo? ¿Cómo crear una pausa en la repetición aparentemente incesante de nuestras propias historias? ¿Cómo puedo estar honestamente delante de los demás cuando yo realmente no me entiendo nada a mí mismo?

Carlos Castaneda solía decir que nadie “entiende” nada. Una verdadera comprensión requeriría ir detrás o más allá de los supuestos en que se basan todos los intentos de comprensión –algo que no podemos hacer, porque en la base de todo hay puro misterio, lo desconocido–. Es como el niño que responde a cada paso de la explicación de un adulto con “¿Por qué?”, hasta que finalmente su padre tiene que decirle que no hay “por qué” para algunas preguntas. Sin embargo, incluso sin entender nada, podemos manejar y disfrutar de la vida y el mundo perfectamente bien; podemos funcionar maravillosamente.

Tom Detail BE Energy PassCuando guío clases de Being Energy o enseño a otros, mi única opción es suspender mi propia historia, que incluye un montón de dudas propias sobre el manejo de algo que no puede reducirse a la lógica o la razón, y dejar que el Espíritu se canalice a través de mí, aunque sólo sea por un rato. Bajo la presión de mi compromiso para presentar algo, tengo que relajarme en algún punto y dejar que las ideas fluyan— qué enfatizar, cómo expresarlo, qué secuencia de movimientos hacer— y luego conectar con la sensación energética que los movimientos y prácticas crean. Esto es especialmente cierto cuando se presenta el Código o guío una sesión de recapitulación. Es un misterio por qué los movimientos del Código silencian la mente, pero sí experimento ese silencio y lo siento como una conexión directa entre los que estoy guiando y yo, aun cuando estamos en diferentes partes del mundo, comunicándonos por Internet pero también a través de nuestro enlace energético.

Recapitular en un grupo es aun más misterioso. Si cada uno de nosotros está revisando sus propias experiencias de vida distintas, ¿Cuál es el valor de llevar a cabo esto como una actividad de grupo o de clase? Por un lado, estamos condicionados a la disciplina de un horario y un acuerdo para reunirnos, por lo que el formato de clase nos ayuda a dar ese paso inicial –¡Sólo Hazlo!–. Más allá de esta ventaja práctica, el formato de grupo ayuda a crear y reforzar un determinado estado de ánimo, de silencio, de valor y determinación para enfrentarnos a nosotros mismos sin juicio. La suspensión del juicio también se aplica al acto de la recapitulación en sí. Aún cuando nada llegue a nosotros como una experiencia digna de recapitularse, aceptamos esto sin autocrítica y con un estado de ánimo de curiosidad y asombro. Incluso la experiencia más aparentemente mundana que nos toque recordar puede conducir al descubrimiento y auto-conocimiento.

Tom Teaching

El desafío de integrar nuestro centro más profundo, la esencia de nuestro ser, con nuestro comportamiento y elecciones no es un objetivo ante el cual nos podamos juzgar como ganadores o perdedores. Es un camino, un proceso que continúa a todo lo largo de nustras vidas. Todos tienen dudas, y cada uno de nosotros pierde el sentimiento de energía fluida y de silencio una y otra vez. Sin embargo, si hemos probado esta energía y este silencio, sabemos cómo encontrarlos y seguimos regresando, tratando de ir más profundo y de mantener esta posición por más tiempo.

Al decidir enseñar te estás comprometiendo. Estás eligiendo ponerte en el borde y reunir tu energía cada vez que guías a otros, a pesar de no tener garantías de que vas a tener éxito. Cuando se acerca una clase y te sientes perdido, el compromiso viene en tu ayuda. Esto centra tu atención y activa tu intento para que realmente puedas conectar con la fuente inagotable de la vida y la creatividad. Te pones de pie ante los demás sin saber exactamente lo que vas a decir, pero con una sensación de certeza que se expresa en tu voz, tus ojos y tus movimientos. Y en ese momento has cambiado tu historia—tú eres alguien o algo más, una expresión del infinito.

¡Qué gran regalo es esta oportunidad de compartir la belleza del espíritu con otros!

¡BE en Bulgaria!

Hola, Amigos,

Les escribo para contarles acerca de nuestro taller más reciente en Bulgaria. Puedo decir que fue el evento más exitoso conducido por instructores de BE en Bulgaria. Fuimos capaces de obtener una hermosa sede para el evento, en la que se servía buena comida, a un precio razonable de 45 Euros por el taller, hospedaje y alimentos. ¿Han escuchado antes de semejantes precios? Es posible aquí. Y la mitad del precio cubrió el taller, lo cual es la tarifa normal por hora en estudios de yoga aquí.

Pavel Pavlov

Estemos, desde luego, apenas comenzando nuestro camino como Instructores de BE en Bulgaria, por lo cual no establecimos un precio más elevado. Paciencia. Nuestro grupo consiste de 12 practicantes y dos Instructores de Being Energy, Sergey Velev y yo.

Permítanme contarles un poco acerca de la sede del evento. Es un sitio un poco rústico, pero muy agradable, en un pequeño pueblo con manantiales de agua mineral. Es de hecho una pequeña fábrica de cerámica donde hay un estudio para diseñar diferentes figuras de arcilla. Cada año, la fábrica organiza seminarios para niños, en los que se les da la oportunidad de trabajar con sus manos en el estudio. También tienen seminarios para diferentes tipos de artistas –pintores, escultores, etc.–. Hay hermosas piezas de arte por todo el estudio, que fueron elaboradas durante estos seminarios.

Pudimos disponer del lugar entero durante el fin de semana, y comimos alimentos cocinados especialmente para nosotros, basados en un menú que solicitamos.

Participants 1

El ánimo era uno de corazón y sincedirad; todos trabajaron duro y extrajeron lo mejor del evento. Había seis recién llegados que expresaron su emoción y felicidad por estar ahí.

Al final del taller dejamos algo de tiempo para que todos hicieran preguntas, o simplemente dijeran como se sentían. La mayoría compartió que ahora tenían una nueva visión para sus vidas. Una de los recién llegados explicó que pensaba que iba a practicar yoga, pues también anunciamos el evento a través de nuestros amigos instructores de yoga. Al principio se sintió confundida por los movimientos. Quedó impresionada cuando hablamos de Carlos Castaneda, pues justo había comenzado a leer sus libros recientemente. Tras hacer la conexión entre leer los libros y este evento, se dio cuenta de que no estaba ahí por accidente.

Participants In Studio 2

El tema del taller fue “En el Flujo del Poder”. ¡El tema fue ideado por Sergey y por mí antes de conocer el de las siguientes clases del Camino con Corazón! Durante el almuerzo, escuché a un practicante hablar acerca de un clip de video que había enviado a YouTube sobre una pata que cruzó con sus patitos una carretera de seis carriles con mucho tráfico. Esta historia me impactó. Cuando, al final del evento, redefinimos para nosotros mismos el significado de poder personal, escribí en mi libreta: “El Poder Personal es guiar a tus patitos a cruzar una carretera transitada de seis carriles para llegar al otro lado juntos”. Y, ¿por qué no a lo Desconocido?

Participants In Studio 5¿Pueden imaginarse a esta ave cruzando, volando y ajusticiando monstruos con sus patitos? ¿Qué puede impulsar este acto increíble? Tras el taller, encontré el clip y lo compartí en la página de Facebook de Being Energy en Bulgaria. Lo pueden ver aquí: https://www.facebook.com/BeingEnergyBulgaria – Un reportaje de CNN.

Incluso compre una familia de patos en cerámica que están ahora frente a la casa del árbol en el bosque, junto al sitio donde les escribo esto. Una hermosa cadena de patos. Y, por supuesto, es ahora mi imagen de escritorio.
Make_way_for_ducklings_statue

Durante la preparación del taller tenía una fuerte sensación de que necesitaba sostener el intento claro acerca del tema, y después desarrollar todo alrededor de éste. Definitivamente llegó, pero al inicio sentí que mi energía estaba dispersa y que las cosas no funcionaban tan fluidamente como me hubiera gustado. Es un proceso de aprendizaje, y estoy agradecido con mis queridos maestros, Aerin, Miles, y todos los increíbles seres de este linaje – de quienes siento su apoyo–, así como con todos mis camaradas de ¡Ser un Experto!

A Path of Love, A Path with Heart

My name is Kale Amber, I come from a lineage of disciplined, strong beings from Costa Rica. My ancestors had a passion for music, which I carry. Music is seen as the intentional use of the vibration and creates with its counterpart silence the perfect vehicle for emotions. Since early childhood, I’ve lived in a world of sublime emotions, enthanced by music, that my mom cultivated in me through her refined taste for classical music.

Kale AmberAs a young boy, I spent countless hours disassembling things with the sole purpose of finding out how they worked. I now disassemble more ethereal things, like the person, the egos and the stories which I believe are the source of all emotional pain.

My biggest passion now is to write about the human journey. My focus is the deliberate balance between body, mind and spirit that we can achieve when we learn to master our emotions. I intend to teach the evolution and awakening of awareness through emotional intelligence. My interest in this work centers on dealing with emotional pain and helping other beings to acknowledge and understand pain as the utmost tool for bringing us to the present moment.

I came in contact with Carlos Castaneda’s teachings through his books when I was in high school and in the past ten years have worked more with the teachings through the practice of energy movements. In this work, there was a pivotal moment in my life—I recall it as the beginning of my journey in the path of the warrior. I was in a public library and found the book Magical Passes. I did one pass from the book and from that little gesture, magical changes unfolded that have led me to the present moment. Everything that has happened to me since can be connected backwards as if to a master plan.

Kale_Blog_1b

I am grateful for the life I am experiencing, for the human beings, places and experiences in my journey and for the wonderful possibility of waking up to enhanced awareness every day.
In the past five years, Being Energy has been the structural backbone for my journey. Through the regular practice of movements, breathing, recapitulation and silence, I have discovered my true self, my purpose and the joy of being.

My purpose in life is simply to be, but beyond this, I feel an urge to teach fellow travellers how to live easier, more meaningful lives. Being Energy has provided me with a nurturing environment to discover myself, navigate the unavoidable challenges of life and transcend my own boundaries.

Kale_Blog_2

My father passed away a few years ago, while I was attending Being Energy’s Path with Heart classes. The energetic web created by all beings participating in these classes carried me over my grief with beautiful waves of energy, and I could experience the many layers of my father’s death in awe and wonder and also with presence and flow, allowing the pain, too. For this I will always be grateful to my dear teachers Miles and Aerin.

Currently, I am actively teach the daily Being Energy Mind + Body + Spirit classes, teaching Recapitulation and The Ancient Seer’s Code from my home in Florida. I also conduct classes and workshops for groups of practitioners in Costa Rica. Teaching Being Energy opens avenues for me to connect to my true self and to Silent Knowledge, and provides tools for the manifestation and transformation of one’s life in a beautiful organic way that only can be achieved when we learn to love ourselves, our dear families, our partners, our mentors, teachers and friends. From there we can manifest everything else.

One BE Precept in Real Life: Death as an Advisor

Dear Community,

This is a story of the unexpected. It is about how the tools and practical wisdom from people of Mexico and Mesoamerica, as transmitted and enriched now by Being Energy, have helped me meet difficulties.

Foto

This is a photo of my mother, which I wanted to share with you.

There was a turning point for me back in February 2000. I was headed from my home city of San Luis Potosi to Málaga Spain to get a PhD in ​​education. At the same time, my mother’s health had been deteriorating. She’d suffered from diabetes for 30 years—a disease that is often very aggressive and devastating in its later stages.

What should I do? I felt that going abroad would mean leaving her alone. I had been living with her and caring for things. My brother and sister were each married, and my father was older. So I talked with my brother, sister and father so that we could all decide together what was best. They agreed that it was best for me to go to Spain, and that they would help care for my mom.

So it was decided, and it was also set that I would return to Mexico on a certain date for a few days for reasons connected to my work with the University of San Luis Potosi

Once in Málaga, when the date arrived for my brief return to Mexico, I phoned home to tell my family that I was preparing for the trip. My father answered the call, and gave me the news that my mom’s health had entered a critical state and she had to be hospitalized. I was worried and also somewhat amazed and grateful at how this event was coinciding with the trip that had been planned some time ago. The trip involved my picking up some money for work from the University, which would also allow me to deal with the hospital expenses.

By that time, I had practiced the teachings of Carlos Castaneda for five years. I think I had already redistributed and accumulated enough energy to allow me to realize the truth of what at another time I would have called coincidence. It really was a magical gesture that spirit had given to me, because everything was flowing to favor my being able to travel home to Mexico so that I could say goodbye to my mother.

I recognized then how important it is to live in a purposeful and disciplined way—to make way for our bond with the Spirit. Far from a mythical tale, I now knew that now it was a clear and tangible reality.

IMG_0613I can say without a doubt that it was the gift of the Spirit to be able to be there with my family just, as it turned out, three days before the death of my mother. Being there also allowed me to participate in one of the most important decisions I’ve ever faced.

Shortly after I arrived, the doctor told our family that biological and clinically, my mom and had no chance of improvement, and asked us to decide whether or not to prolong her life artificially. The doctor told us this and then stayed in silence, watching us and waiting for an answer. My siblings and my dad, turned and looked at me, and I had the sense to say, “All we want for my mother is for her not to suffer.”

There can be no worse suffering than to see a loved one suffer, and it feels so powerless to know there is little if anything you can do about it.

In my imagination, I had thought of such a moment with great concern and anguish. However, in the moment of the reality of it, I felt different about death, more clear and grounded, thanks to trying to live the premises of the ancient seers and learning about death as an advisor. I also drew upon a memory of having heard years earlier that with the death of a member of a Chinese family, far from being a drama or tragedy, it is treated as a loving if solemn farewell serene.

Here I am with two of my great loves: My partner Mary and felines. We are at a Zoo in Puebla, Mexico, where animals are not in cages, but in open spaces. Their philosophy is focused on the care and preservation of species.

To my surprise, I found that I was facing losing my mother with much serenity. Of course I experienced pain and sorrow. But I can say that I was privileged to mourn my mother, in time, place and form of my predilection, and without suppressing my emotions and feelings.

I also know that this was a magical moment because I realized and fully understood why it is important to gather and redistribute our energy to our vital centers. In this case, specially the center for feeling located on the right side of our body, consisting of the liver and gallbladder. I am sure that maintaining my energy levels and awareness was what allowed me to get sober in managing my emotions in this process.

But the story is not over.

A year after my mother’s death, another significant event occurred. One afternoon I was taking a nap, and I had a dream of my mother. She was standing in my living room—clearly there—and without words, she gestured and pointed to the right, where my sister was sitting on a chair. My mother wore an expression of concern and sadness.

I woke up startled by the vividness of the dream. No sooner had I finished waking up, than the phone rang. A lady called me to tell me that my sister and her husband had had an accident on the road. The vehicle they were in had crashed against a rock wall on a curved slope.

My sister came away from the crash with severe injuries and blows to her head. I’m still impressed by the way my mother—or the image of my mother—told me of the accident in the dream, almost at the same moment that it happened.

This event with my sister left me with more questions than answers. One of these questions is: Why did I choose this story to share?

I have no doubt that real love is the one that is offered unconditionally. I have always been convinced that dolphins are magical beings, that show us how to be generous and give our affection. This photo is taken in Riviera Maya.

Thank you very much for reading my story,

P.S.  I’ve included pictures here of being with animals because they represent moments of great happiness. Since I was a child, I always wanted to be able to connect with and touch these creatures, and being able to be with them is a dream come true. Such a blessing. It’s something I pursued after my mother died—her death inspired me to go for my dreams and follow deep desires for connection and love.

In daily life awareness, we may consider pain and happiness as contrasting and contradictory feelings. However, from a higher state of consciousness, I appreciate pain and happiness as part of a same process, as Octavio Paz said, “The darker the night, the closer the dawn.”
