Soul Bazaar

Your vulnerability your ticket to invulnerability.

September 15th, 2011 No Comments » Filed under Acknowledgement, The Hawk Mindset

 

One of the major misunderstandings of our time is that we are actually under the illusion our vulnerability defines our weakness when the opposite is true.

Embracing and exposing your vulnerability, in other words honor it defines your highest strength, It is the source of your power.

It brings an unlimited  added value to your life,  taking most of the drama, self doubts and the incapacity to make decisions without worrying about made up consequences.

In other words, believe it or not, your vulnerability is the only thing that will make you invulnerable. Mark my words!

Let me elaborate.

  • Exposing and embracing your vulnerability restores the authority of your Soul,
  • Exposing and embracing your vulnerability re establishes  your natural sense of  authenticity,
  • Exposing and embracing your vulnerability enhances a real bonding connection with other spiritual beings having the human experience
  • Exposing and embracing your vulnerability secures a sense of  empathy for yourself  mirrored to others. We are all in this together…Oneness.
  • Exposing and embracing your vulnerability is the first step to  paving  your way to  emotional integrity.

And guess what! Developing those tools in the inventory of your thinking can actually become very handy and give you unimaginable success. Empathy is the keyword  in 21st C mindset. Empathy  vibrates oneness, community, cooperation and passion to contribute. !

So please don’t hesitate to show your vulnerability any more,  and honor it as it deserves it, this opens the door to your own invulnerability, eradicating the drama for good.

The thing is, your beauty as a human being expands to 100% of wholeness when you are not afraid any more to show that you are human like the rest of us…remember we are all vulnerable. Not only you.

I can’t wait to see your beauty expanding  to 100%  wholeness.  Accepting all of your humanity and proud of it. The world is waiting for you. Show up Today.

Your Thoughts in need of a serious Inventory.

September 11th, 2011 No Comments » Filed under The Hawk Mindset

You know that you can’t operate a business without maintaining at least a yearly  inventory schedule of your products, right?  It is standard procedure to have full control of  your product inventory and financial balance sheets. To have a real idea where you can apply needed changes.

Well, it happens the same way  with your thoughts. Except you have them all hanging around in the wrong places creating chaos  ad interference because it never occurred to you that you should maintain an inventory  of your thoughts too, the same way you do with your business.  Nobody told you that.

In other words, to create a schedule to discern which thoughts need to be archived in the archives of the of the past. Which ones belong in the archives of the present and which ones belong in the archives of the future.

That is why the first step is to start your inventory. For that yo need to start monitoring as many thoughts  as you can.

That is why you want a hawk to keep a pierce eye over your thoughts :)

When you set your obsolete thoughts in the archives of the past, most of them are actually thoughts that don’t belong to you, they start losing their power in the present. Their voice vanishes slowly becoming only a figment of  memory in the wholeness of your life to be remembered with empathy.

Now what kind of thought is really an obsolete thought that doesn’t belong to you,  you may ask.

Well, it is a thought that recites something along these lines:

((( ” How dare you be you? You will never make it” )))

Recognize those types of thoughts? See now why I said they don’t belong to you? At least not you in your right wholesome mind.

The reason why the thoughts of the past have to be archived is because they contaminate  your present with depression like a virus.

Now  let’s talk about the irrelevant thoughts of the future. Those are the ones that are trying to anticipate the outcome.  They are the  thoughts that don’t let you be present in the process which is more important than the outcome. They contaminate your present with anxiety, like a virus. You want an example?

((( “You will never make it, you don’t have it in you” )))

The thing is when you free your sacred present time from any virus rooted in  your thoughts inventory, you open your mind to unlimited possibilities without restrictions. Best of all,  by freeing your mind from feeling like a victim most of the time you also plant the seeds of empathy for yourself.

Now just imagine 3 big screens: the left is the past the center is the present and the right one is the future. Keep the center one as white immaculate as possible to allow he content of your purpose to pour in. Focus 100% of the time in the center screen.  That is where you make history in the present every minute of every day. You are on the way to harness your thinking to work for you, not against you and becoming a Thought Masters.  Congratulations, Now you can co create with coherence in oneness and connect to your life purpose.

Associating the dissociated through embracing any experience as what it is: Knowledge

August 23rd, 2011 1 Comment » Filed under The Hawk Mindset

 

Do you recall one of those painful situations that felt like you wanted to crawl in a hole under a rock and forget ? Do you recall with the passing of time those memories somehow made some sense and healed?

If you are experiencing that kind of trauma right now, remember, that scene of your life is attached to your whole story. It is only a scene among the multiple scenes in the play of your life.

Only one more scene.The difference is that this one hurts… The best was always  to acknowledge it, mourn the loss give it some time,  move to the next scene… and no matter what, not fall into the temptation of repeating that scene over and over in your mind and get stuck there. Right?

You would be closing the door to too many new opportunities…

Why?

Because somethings you can’t change. The Serenity prayer one of my favorite prayers of all times recites:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can change and the wisdom to know the difference…

Things you can’t change you have to accept. Period.

You want one more reason?

My friend Kristal McVicar artitculates  it in a perfect way today in facebook:

“All endings are the pathway to new beginnings. All beginnings lead to endings. This circle is never broken even though we differentiate between endings and beginnings, life and death, good and bad, right and wrong. All a perfect part of the unending circle of creation…………” xoxoxoxox

Therefore, as Albert Einstein said so wisely. “Knowledge is only experience”… never mind if they are good or bad scenes attached to your life or they are at the beginning or the end of this or that circle. Whether they look ugly or pretty. There is only one truth. All experiences  become knowledge…not only the good ones.

Here is to us thinking, feeling and speaking the language of the heart. Activating the powerful magnet of our hearts collectively in oneness. Thanks Kristal for the inspiration…it is such a great subject! Big hug to all!

Uncle Eugene, my Godfather.

July 12th, 2011 No Comments » Filed under Acknowledgement

When Shonika Proctor recently gave me the magnificent news, that after a 5 minutes conversation with the Director of Universidad de Chile, she is managing the upcoming Entrepreneurship Program of the Institution, I wasn’t that surprised knowing Shonika and her talented passion to contribute, for one thing,  but little did she know that added to the joy of learning about her well merited new found innovation journey partnering with Universidad de Chile, the pillar of  Chilean Educational Tradition…at the same time, she opened a vortex of warm and familiar memories that have been asleep in my psyche for quite a long time.

When I think of Universidad de Chile, a warm, familiar deep feeling of contentment  invades my being. It was uncle Eugene. We all knew that during the week, in working hours  he would spend his precious time at the Pedagogic, the College Campus, his second home. His second love.

His first home and first love being aunt Lila and us, his family.  Mainly Aunt Lila though. With her lyric, her German” Lieders”, her piano her singing classes and her common sense. He had devotion for her.

Us, gravitating eternally around the peaceful nature of his humanity. Enjoying his acute sense of humor, sprinkled  like salt and pepper on top on his stories and mainly enjoying the presence of his attention. Uncle Eugene and aunt Lila were one of those legendary couples who complemented each other sharing  their work and their thinking in a vivid daily conversation. It was a pleasure to be around them. They were both dedicated to their passion as teachers in their respective fields…Aunt Lila at the Conservatory of Music and uncle Eugene, at the Pedagogic in Universidad de Chile.

During the weekends or holidays if we were not in Viña del Mar, breathing the fresh aroma  of the pine woods in Quinta Vergara, or they were  traveling the world to fulfill uncle Eugene’s obligations as a Historian and public figure, he would be home in Santiago,  getting ready for a walk with “Pierre Pierre”, as he called his companion, the black poodle who managed to somehow fill the void of a son,  inviting me to go along with him and the dog,  or reading an Agatha Christi  novel in his beloved library to relax his eternally on task scientific investigative mind. Always ready to surprise me and my brothers with the eternal stream of chocolates that would come out of his pockets.

Their love for classical music would take them weekly to enjoy  the lyric season, at “Teatro Municipal” or the  philharmonic orchestra. Their evenings were alternated between quiet time and gatherings  with friends and family and the multiple events where his company was requested.

When I think of Universidad de Chile, I think of uncle Eugene, and  the Institution he loved so much, that was part of his soul, the institution he was grateful to, the Institution that  provided him with the optimal space to research, a haven to feed his never ending hunger for knowledge and expansion. The expansion he saw in his unique humanitarian visionary way.

When I think of  Universidad de Chile I can’t help but to be  grateful  to the Institution’s contribution to molding the phenomenal lifetime career of Eugenio Pereira Salas,  my great uncle, my godfather, my mentor, my role model, the Humanitarian who planted the seed of my passion for history and its scientific research. The institution that gave him peace of mind.

When I think of Universidad de Chile today, taking into consideration the historical perspective, I think of a pillar in the Chilean Educational Tradition.

When I think of uncle Eugene, sometimes I think of that last walk we spent  together in Washington, when I was pregnant with Max, my first born, in 1976 when we had our last conversation about  Spanish literature, and the generation of 98, and  our beloved Pedro Salinas, one of our favorite Spanish writers.

When I think of uncle Eugene and Universidad de Chile today, I can hear uncle Eugene’s voice, charged with that sense of  loyalty that personified him: “I couldn’t have done it without Universidad de Chile”.

As one of his beloved students and one of the oldest  professors of History in the Department of Historical Sciences at Universidad de Chile…since 1959, Cristián Guerrero Yoacham states:

“That rainy afternoon of November 17th 1979, not only died one Eugenio Pereira Salas, but many of them. Died Eugenio Pereira master, historian, founder of the musical Chilean Historiography, precursor and propeller of folk, the history of the theater, the native cooking, the mentalities, the fine arts, died Eugenio Pereira cordial boss and counselor, died the friend by excellence, generous, unconditional, loyal, gentleman, fine and delicate. Died Eugenio Pereira  erudit, wise man, and for the author of these lines died a real father whom I still miss more and more with the passing of time, because  his legacy becomes more patent and applicable to confront the world of today. He always taught me the supremacy of the spirit over matter, the dedication to work and the love for history that is life.  For that I repeat his words on 1977 when he thanked the Premio Atenea” If man creates himself surging from the same essence of the human disposition, life is not a daily plebiscite but a a continuance for those who believe in the eternity of values”.

When I think of Universidad de Chile today, after 43 years of living abroad in Europe and USA, and my last 4 years and 3 months of research in the field of  “Thoughts”, I think

“Traditional Leadership and Commitment in Educational Expansion”.

Thank you Shonika Proctor, my sister, my friend for helping bring the memories to the surface.

Being in Berkeley last month also led me to reminisce about uncle Eugene evoking his time in Berkeley.   He was in love with  American culture and had great memories of that time.

So, WHY the Hawk Mindset?

May 12th, 2011 No Comments » Filed under The Hawk Mindset

It all started when I was collaborating with Ari Galper at Unlock the Game, coaching his  members.  Ari Galper’s amazingly human and genius 21st C Sales Coaching Program delivered in a magnificent coherent sequenced language based on trust at the human level incorporating the truth to the sales equation. How refreshing!

It became evident very rapidly that  just speaking the coherent and sequenced language Ari created for his UTG  members would not be enough for success in many people’ cases.  Because it is not enough  to speak  it . You have to think it and feel it before to reach your goal as a marketer to actually connect with your prospect at the human  level and are able to set the stage  to build trust with the truth. It requires a mindset shift on your part…

( We all have too many years thinking backwards in automatic pilot to be reversed)

It was then when I understood  that while the language is quite  important and I was so excited about  Ari’s content,  your thoughts being  the motor and direction of your full potential are crucial.  If you don’t mean it, it doesn’t mean anything. It is necessary to align the language with the thoughts and the feelings to actually convey the required message. Believe it or not  in my opinion that is a desperately needed training.

Unlock the Game Members  were mostly entrepreneurs, financial advisers,  insurance agents, internet marketers. network marketers. It was challenging to help them in 2,008  with the depression, the way the debacle of the economy started to unravel.  They needed serious help and a high dose of   innovative creativity to reconnect with an extremely skeptical marketplace.

For some people The Internal Dialogue needed to be reviewed in order to achieve their goals, actually articulating their authenticity through feeling and thinking the new language. Not only speaking it.

It’s not like you decide you’ll be authentic one day and voila, you are authentic. It requires the very nature of authenticity. Thinking, feeling and speaking it.

Ari supported me in the extra effort of  starting slowly introducing  them to the  mechanism needed to harness their thoughts to work for them instead of them.   The mechanism I have been applying for years. He trusted me to research with his members. I’ll be for ever grateful.

So, how does it work and foremost why the hawk?

Well, because the first step for success is to a is to monitor your thoughts . To monitor as many obsolete thoughts as possible. Obsolete thoughts are the ones that are irrelevant to the present time. More likely they are an emotional attachment from the past, an emotional attachment not allowing you to move forward as an adult. Serious!

So I would say to my clients:

“The first step to make sure you can succeed at  harnessing your thoughts  is to monitor them…like a hawk“. They are creating your reality at will every minute of every day for you. You need a hawk if the task is to monitor as many thoughts possible…

That is the story of  how the hawk’s role as the guardian of my own thoughts and my friends and clients thoughts,  was transferred to  the title of my newly developed  program. It was Michelle Finnegan, my coaching buddy at UTG and former UTG GM who suggested it. I had discussed  with her the image of  the hawk and she loved the powerful symbolism. “Why don’t you name the program after the hawk” she said in one of the multiple conversations we had over the last 3 years. I loved it! She was so right! It deserved the recognition because without the attributes that you  model  from the hawk you are not able to make it.  Simple as that. You need a fearless partner with keen vision to catch as many thoughts as possible. :::))) That is the secret.

The Hawk also reminds you never to disconnect from nature again.

For the ones of you who don’t know anything about “The Hawk Mindset”,  IT IS A Transformational Training for Entrepreneurs who want to become “Thought Masters” and harness their thoughts to work for them instead of against them securing success in their business.  The program is divided in 3  fundamental  modules.

Module 1: “Thought/Heart  Mastery”  The science of  thoughts and feelings and the mechanism to align your hearts and feelings

Module 2“The Seven Pillars of Thought, the Foundation of the Mindset”

Revaluation of 7 universal principles: Truth, Acknowledgment, Fear, Judgment, Errors,  Clarity, Self Responsibility.

Module 3 :  “Your Inner Child in charge of your Internal Visionary Team”

To never forget again the creativity codes of your right brain hidden in your own  Inner Child and guide your way back to Love Unity and Cooperation.

My purpose is to inspire you to reconnect with  your Inner Driving Force by helping create your Internal Visionary Team. You see, as entrepreneurs we need a Visionary Team. It just makes sense to start with creating your  Internal Visionary Team first. How is a dissociated person inside going to have a coherent Visionary Team outside without associating the dissociated inside first. Think about it…

So the idea is to create an internal trinity. The  hawk model sitting @ your left hand and your Inner Child sitting @  your right hand. Yes, visualize it. For once  acknowledging that it is not about the right hand or the left hand only any more….it is about incorporating both hands…both brains…the left and the right represented in your hands. Acknowledging the importance of both…makes sense?  How does it feel…? In other words,  Your Inner Child in charge of your Internal Visionary Team and the Hawk model the guardian of your Thoughts.

As I was saying, Module 1“Thought Masters”, actually empowers you to train yourself  to become a Black Belt Thought Master.

The beauty is that the hawk has a lot to teach you.

WHY?

Because the Hawk IS Messenger, protector, visionary, has keen vision, and is open to new ideas.

So, AGAIN,  reinforcing my original visual with the Hawk as the Guardian of your Thoughts within the program to help you monitor them, led me to  go a step further and  incorporate the hawk in  the title. After the name was decided,

the first thing I did was the keyword research of the word “hawk” and found the collective consciousness revealed something far more interesting than I expected. Just google the word “hawk” and you will find a lot of meaningful conversation along with 167.000.000 hits.

It feels to me a lot of people other than me are having a conversation with  hawks these days…(huge smile) after all, people are awakening to the fact that we are all one and any perception of separation is an illusion. The interesting thing is that I hear more and more persons who are fascinated by the hawk’s message and the numbers seem to be growing…it almost feels like  hawks as a species are on a mission to give us a message and we are finally open to receive its call. I love it!

In any case it  is time to go back to the basics…Primitive cultures modeled animal behaviors, and transformed certain animals into totems. Powerful symbolism has come in the form of animals and their behaviors throughout thousands of years, transforming them in our teachers.   There is a reason for that. Contrary to the across the board educational system,  we human beings learn through modeling behaviors, not by being lectured. We human beings are one with nature…there is no separation.

Nature is a symphony of knowledge singing before our eyes.  Ready to be read all over again.

The Hawk happens to be the ultimate model to help integrate the right brain and the left brain. In other words to integrate a clear perception of the big picture, critical thinking, and co-creative spirit into your thinking, feeling and speaking. At all times.

Here are a list  of 12 excerpts coming  from different voices  of different people and their perception of the lessons the hawk brings us and about  why  the Hawk’s sacred message to us is important to be modeled and feels so organic:

1) Keen vision is one of its greatest gifts. Hawks see things others miss.

2) The hawk comes to you indicating that you are now awakening to your soul purpose, your reason for being here. It can teach you how to fly high while keeping yourself connected to the ground.

3) As you rise to a higher level, your psychic energies are awakening and the hawk can help you to keep those senses in balance. Its message for you is to be open to hope and new ideas, to extend the vision of your life.

4) The Hawk is an animal of flight. It soars through the air looking down, and sees everything. It has a larger perspective of what is going on down below. With its keen eyesight, it looks down as it soars through the air looking for its prey. It can see the smallest of creatures below.

5) The Hawk is known as a messenger, similar to the planet Mercury, for the hawk soars close to the Grandfather Sun, as does the planet. When you listen to the power of the Grandfather Sun or Wise Spirit that lives within, you are protected from all types of harm.

6) The Hawk teaches you to be observant and take a close look at your surroundings. It soars with the power to overcome difficult situations. It soars in circles over the life of the earth, asking you to circle over your life and view it from a higher perspective.

7) The Hawk has a distinct cry, one that most people are aware of. Its cry signifies awareness. If you hear the cry of the hawk use your intuitive ability to discern the message and seek the truth.

8) If a hawk has soared into your life, you require a higher perspective. You need to see the details of what is going on and look at the bigger picture. Take a look at your situation from above.

9) Specifically, the hawk beckons us to hone our focus on the areas that are out of balance in our lives. Recognition is the first step to solution.

10) Furthermore, the hawk is a solar animal which makes it kin to all the attributes summed up by fire and sun. Attributes such as brilliance, clarity, energy, and unification.

11) In Dreams , hawks represent our yearning for freedom and clarity and is often considered a message from the subconscious to use our intellectual power to obtain the freedom we desire in our lives.

12) The hawk asks us to be aware of the power each of us has over others. Further, we must each respect our potential positions of authority (leadership) and honor all those with whom we interact.

Again, these are statements that I selected because they represent your voice. Each one from a different site.

You get the idea ? These excerpts although  somewhat reiterative, portray the clarity of the idea and how the hawk’s message is penetrating the collective consciousness.

Because of all of those powerful reasons, “The Hawk Mindset” was born…The Hawk will  help you align your left brain with your right brain. Harnessing your thoughts to work for you instead of against you. I tell you, I have done it. With myself  first and also with numerous people. The beauty is that once most of your determining  thoughts, feelings and language  are aligned within yourself, to work for you, you become the hawk.  His behavior transpires in your actions. Like with Shakespeare after a mindful rehearsal period of Hamlet…You become Hamlet. You are ready for Opening Night. Now  you are trained to assert the Hawk’s attributes… It was one training away:

  • Attention
  • Vision
  • Power
  • Energy
  • Leadership
  • Intensity

They are all yours! Congratulations, You have become a Black Belt Thought Master running automatically in your Internal Visionary Team guided by your friend the hawk who helped you understand the oneness of all things and to associate the dissociated inside out. That is why the Hawk is a necessity as your left hand.

I bet  by now you are probably thinking, “ok that is the hawk but what’s up with  your right hand then…?  Why Your Inner Child ?”

your Inner Child becomes internally Your right  hand, but that is another story

Your Inner Child is to become the Head of your Internal Visionary Team. That is Module 3.

Here you can find more information about  WHY your Inner Child, your right hand.

http://www.soulhangout.net/howtoharnessthepowerofyourinnerchildtoachievesoulpurpose/


 

So we have  covered Modules 1 and 3. I know you have a question by now.  If we have covered Module  1 & 3  featuring the hawk and the inner child already, what  is Module 2 then…right ?

The reason why I didn’t list its content before  is because it is crucial in its position between the Thought Masters guided by the Hawk and the Inner Child Managing your Internal Visionary Team. The middle of the two. The glue between the two. Nurturing and guiding both. The Pillars of Thought, the Foundation of the Mindset.

So, so far we have your right arm and your left arm to guide you, working together to expedite your business success.

What you need now is a foundation of thought. The pillars of your new Mindset. Your new mental model.

Some thoughts on cold calling

April 18th, 2011 No Comments » Filed under Sales

I am working with a client on my “Interview cold calling Method” to craft his mission into his branding in 3 paragraphs. To find the keynotes to the melody of the conversation to engaging his prospect with empathy in the subject that matters to him or her without wasting time nor words. To sequence the conversation that takes place after the prospect is engaged, in exploration if you both are a fit. I love this work so much. To use the power of words to communicate from the Thoughts, and the Heart in unison, like a straight arrow.

It occurs to me that if you started a phrase within the first part of the conversation, after the opening phrase saying something like this “I am looking for MY “IDEAL PROSPECT”, would that be you?

…And inserted instead of MY “IDEAL PROSPECT” the words that would connect and identify with the core of the problem that your client needs to solve, showing your EMPATHY at hello, your life as a sales person would be much more simple. You would become a straight arrow respecting your prospect’s time and yours. Your Authenticity would be leading the way voicing your keywords.

So let’s say we inserted my own.

Here it goes:

I am looking for an entrepreneur who has the need to train his or her thoughts because he/she knows how crucial it is for the health of his/her business. Would that be you?

What if I approached you with those words…wouldn’t it be easier to identify your ideal client? It is clear, straight to the point and it would require one phrase to pre qualify your prospect.

What happens there is that is that most likely because we started with empathy, the response will be honest and and empathetic with your cause so showing the spirit of cooperation, (because that is the kind of spirit you are attracting any way) it can be transformed into something like this…”Actually not myself, but I know of somebody who would be a great fit for you.

The thing is we are really looking for our ideal client, the one that will benefit 100% with our product because him or her will apply it 100%. Because he or she sees 100% value in it.

On another note, something else to take into consideration is that we are ONE thinking we are separate of one another, when that is an illusion…thoughts supporting that perception need to be archived. They are not relevant anymore.

It’s Friday Already!

April 9th, 2011 No Comments » Filed under Acknowledgement

My friends over the years have always laughed at me in that way that only true friends mirror back to you with the humor of their acceptance. It happens that as far in the past as I can remember, I always was a junky for that human connection that comes from a smile, a hug, or a soul to soul conversation. It felt so good that it was always the rule to see me hug total strangers on the street after a glance or a two word phrase. I felt it kept me alive…little did I know consciously at the time that there was a very good reason for that. We are all one and living with the pretension of being so separated and in  competition with one another, was a huge burden to carry. So, I went through life acknowledging as many people as I could looking for my drug…the need to be connected, even if it was just waving at every person at every car that passed by when I was 5 years old…it makes me happy that my grandson inherited that condition…a bigger than him need to connect to strangers…what does that mean…that they are not strangers for him, the way they were not strangers for me at an unconscious level.

A few weeks ago in the fast forward wave we are riding, a dear friend on Facebook, the “Hawk”, who has earned her name with honor for walking through life like the sacred bird of the soul, with keen vision, and….., posted in Facebook, one phrase:  “It’s Friday already”. That phrase brought instant memories of  a story about an encounter with a “soul sister” or what we call a “stranger” in this planet. I couldn’t resist to share with my friend the “Hawk” that her post reminded me of this story and I promised to tell her the story…here it goes, a few weeks late, but you don’t mess with a hawk :) .

It was Friday night, late, close to 10 pm.(at the time I did catering on top of my Hispanic Media advertising job, so I had to prepare some food for a client. I headed to the Safeway in Adams Morgan. The place was empty.  You could feel the “farandula” on the streets, and the restaurants and bars around were filled with guests ready to decompress after a rat race week. I did my shopping slowly, almost in slow motion.  When I was done, I walked on the empty aisles heading to the cashier. By the time I was approaching the hall to find the probably only open cashier, there was a black woman probably in her fifties like myself, coming towards me.  She looked at me straight in the eyes and said “It’s Friday!  Already”  I stopped, connected with her eyes and answered, somehow like picking up a conversation we have had before, that was written in the wind… like in total astonishment of that strange perception of time we are used to…”Yes! Can you believe it?…like that, just like that and I snapped my fingers in disbelief.

“Yes!” she said emphasizing even more that sense of absurdity of time, and repeated “Can you believe it?” echoing my disbelief.

“Before you know, you realize on a  Fridays that  5 years went by”, just like that” I added opening my arms to gesture with my hands the feeling of empathy and acknowledgment… Yes!!! years gone…just like that…She answered: “Yes!!! Just like that.  It was then when we started a duo of laughter.  The kind of laughter that comes from your stomach…the best kind, especially if it is in the same frequence of vibration. From then on,   we completely lost track of time. I don’t know how long we laughed, I don’t know if there were people around, I don’t know if the cashier was there watching us…it felt like it was her and myself our laughter, our connection and the thought we were sharing…the absurdity of time. I don’t know how long the laughter lasted. I know it lasted as long as we both were completely satisfied with its vibration. I know when it finally ended  felt like I landed in my body again and there it was. The cashier probably patiently waiting to run our  groceries through the register. We cashed out and hugged. A long,  bear endearing and grateful hug with no restrictions. We both thanked each other. “Have a beautiful life and see you in five years” I said laughing. We smiled with that satisfied smile that comes after pleasure, a moment of  oneness in the land of separation… each one took her own way. I never saw her again, and I always will remember her with gratefulness and love for those moments of  joy.

Thank you Bertee, for reminding me of that experience.

“The Hawk Mindset” A “Thought Masters” Transformational Training

March 31st, 2011 No Comments » Filed under The Hawk Mindset

What is it?

My newly developed program.

But let me tell you the story…It happened in facebook  as so many other things happening  dispersed within thoughtful and soulful facebook threads.

My fb friend Dalia ElGabaly gets in my chat box to say “hi”  and touch base, as many other times before when we talked about our mutual projects in life purpose.  We are pretty much on the same page. She is the first Arab woman to bring NLP to the Arab countries I profoundly admire her.  She has been telling me for a while now,  while I have been working  in creating my program,  that she wanted to translate it  into Arabic as soon as it was ready. We have  been exploring on several ideas to work together in the near future.

Now I have her in my chat box. Excited about the news, I tell her that the program map, is ready to go and in the editing  process. After a few minutes of chatting she asked me the question: “What is the name of the program?”  I stopped, thought for a moment  and remember  how the name of the format came from a thread from facebook.  “Co-Creative Circles of Coherence”  mastermind groups to consciously connect and combine intelligence. Remember? It was my facebook  friends who helped me come up with a concept for the mastermind groups. Right then is when I realized I had done everything to launch the program except think of a name for it.  It made me laugh!

I don’t remember what I answered to Dalia, but soon we went on with the situation about Egypt and her involvement in the revolutionary process…as everything she does it was a  fascinating revolutionary experience.

So, after we finished chatting, as you can imagine,  she left  me with the need to find the name, PRONTO.  Prior to this incident with Dalia, I  had a conversation with Michelle Nixon, my partner and friend about “The Hawk”.  Michelle had said she loved the visual and the word hawk in the title. After all, the hawk is an important component of the program.  It happens that the first step  is to assign a hawk to watch your thoughts…A Hawk provides a powerful symbolism to our equation.  I love what Susannah  @ “Divine Sparks”  has to say about that symbolism.

Here it is…you will understand how powerful it is to have a hawk as a model and on your side.

“In representation to humanity, the hawk is called messenger, protector and visionary. Keen vision is one of its greatest gifts. Hawks see things others miss.

The hawk comes to you indicating that you are now awakening to your soul purpose, your reason for being here. It can teach you how to fly high while keeping yourself connected to the ground…” (read the rest)

Thank you so much Susannah for that profoundly powerful article.

I am so grateful to Michelle for seeing  the need to bring our hawk to the title. She definitely has the “Hawk” mindset.  After giving it a little thought, the name came up: “Hawk  Mindset”  A Thought Master Training for Entrepreneurs. It came up on March 23rd. 2011.

Therefore my friends, after 4 years of research and a lifetime of conscious experience in the field of the thoughts, I am proud to share the name of  “The Hawk Mindset” program soon to be launched and the story behind it with you. You all are participants of this journey.

So what is the “Hawk Mindset”?

It is an experimental experiential program consciously connecting and combining information to inspire the Art of the Cooperative Entrepreneur mindset, divided in 3 modules.

  1. “Thought Masters” (I know you are thinking “what’s up with the hawk” ). To become a “Thought Master”, the first step is to assign a hawk to monitor your thoughts.  Thought Masters  know how to use  the power of their thoughts to work for them instead of against them.  To get there, they need keen vision to monitor. The Hawk becomes your left hand.
  2. “The Seven Pillars of Thought, the Foundation of the Mindset. Acknowledgment-Truth-Fear-Judgment-Error-Clarity-Self Responsibility”. An in depth review of the pillar concepts in your mind to align them to the same vibration of your heart.
  3. “Your Inner Child, head of your Visionary Team.” Incorporate your Inner Child in your life.  Your right hand. Recover and remember your right brain attributes, creativity, innovation, community collaboration, critical thinking and more. Your Inner Child will make them work for you. He will become the motor of your passion to contribute.

In other words, when you create your Internal Visionary Team, those are the two most important parts of yourself you need to remember. The hawk and your Inner Child will take you anywhere you envision going. Your left hand and your right hand in partnership.

I want to thank everybody who helped with their ideas and enlightened conversations to make this come true.

The word Clarity

January 10th, 2011 2 Comments » Filed under Acknowledgement

The word Clarity, comes from seeing with the eyes of the soul.  Inside and out. Clarity is what it is. Without attachments.  Without judgment. Clarity overshadows all darkness and ignorance. Clarity grows with the gentle water of knowledge.

Clarity means your capacity to see through BS.  Including yours. Clarity is there when you know that there are no good or bad experiences. They are all experiences, and all posses value.

The trap of clarity, though is that its flame can disappear with exposure to higher frequency  of light. Meaning that it can blind us.  To conquer Clarity, we need to be clear with ourselves first. We need to keep ourselves in check at all times,  with truth and honesty , at the same time we are able to  seeing other people’s circumstances  with clarity.

Otherwise,  we are separating ourselves from the oneness of all things and and competing with our fellow spiritual beings having a human experience. So clarity should be 50/50 directed to others as much as it is to yourself.

On Thursday 1-27-2011  at 3pm Neal Worthington and I will have our “Passing the Torch of Sustainability Program” featuring the word “Clarity” We’ll elaborate more about the word. Check the link.

Happy, happy, happy 2011.

December 31st, 2010 12 Comments » Filed under Acknowledgement

Well,  my dear friends, here we are,  another year is passing by.  2011 is here! Time to evaluate endings and new beginnings.  Christmas with its multicolor lights , gifts and  bright bows is over and we are preparing to receive the brand new year. Wow. Where did the time go! It seems it was yesterday when we were receiving the year 2,000. The older you get the faster time runs in front of you. (simile)

I want to take the opportunity to thank each one of you who have been hanging out  at Soul Hangout,  for feeling out loud with your encouraging comments. Those are my most precious gifts for this year.  They made all the difference  in the world.   I am deeply grateful for your supportive words.

Also,  for the people who  have asked me to post more often. Next year I will. I am finishing with marketing system, including  sales letters and will have more time to connect with you.

For those people who asked to go deeper into the thoughts of the Inner Child in charge of your Visionary Team, we’ll be elaborating more in the subject.  I am crafting a few coaching services, and a few joint ventures new business models to work with Millennials.  Be on the look out for seminars and membership sites. I will keep you posted.

I will take that inspiration, the one you have given me by feeling out loud my writing,  for the New Year  wish. I wish you all with all my heart a year full of  mindful co-creativity and acknowledgment.    Mind you, continue to feel out loud,  please.  It is nourishment for the soul. Let’s move forward to the fundamental changes we are facing and make the difference together.  Without making the difference,  life is robotic and boring. Isn’t it?

Now, let’s talk about the golden and bubbly beverage we will  drink to celebrate the new year.

Can you relate to toasting on new year’s eve with a champagne glass full of wishful thinking bubbles? Yeah, you know, those uncertain bubble wishes without direction or action? The wishful toast for some foggy solution coming from the outside.

It’s time  to replace the wishful thinking bubbles with action thinking bubbles. There is no foggy solution coming from outside.  All the solutions are  inside. In your thoughts. You are in charge.

Here is to you! Salud! and choose your bubbles.
