Where is it going your ship?

Relationships..Tadaaa!

Complicated? Oh yeah..

Rewarding? Oh yeah!!

Have you ever noticed this “relation” “ship” meaning perception? Is it really about a ship that 2 partners decide to take? I’m not sure that when they take it, they do know where their destination is..They are just happy and excited about the journey..A lot of times they are not very prepared for the storms they will face..but maybe that’s better! Because they’d be afraid if they knew and they’d never go for it! And you know what? It’s not about the destination, It has nothing to do with it! The journey…Yes it’s all about it

I was never a relationship expert! I didn’t pay that much of attention on enhancing relationships and giving tips and advises since I’m kind of feminist..so it happened to me not to understand why is to so hard to dump someone who’s not good for you??

Even when I started to read about life coaching, I somehow wanted to avoid the “relationships” part, and I remember one of my mentors who told me you ain’t gonna make it this way..a life coach cannot be specialized, a life coach helps his people in every aspect of their lives, the aspect that they want to work on ..

And this is when the story began: I started to face the weirdest and toughest challenges about relationships. One experience after another for almost a year now where I faced INTENSE feelings of love, solitude, anger, boredom, disappointment, frustration, deception, and worst of all FEAR..

But what I realized the most is relationships are more about Giving rather than receiving, and when I say giving I don’t mean to give with the intention of receiving, I mean Giving because this “someone” means a lot to you and seeing the smile on his/her face is your reward.


Messages from the…Universe

I’ve always wondered about the signs and messages God keep sending me and some of them are just at the very RIGHT time, saying exactly

the RIGHT words..maybe these words just fit in any moment of your life, but for me – at this specific

time it was sent, during these specific circumstances I went through- it was PERFECT!

Here they are 🙂

There is always something, Ferial, to be happy about. Truly happy. And if you have the audacity to find it and the courage to make it your focus, in spite of the countless temptations to do otherwise, you will have learned well, your life will be transformed, and all things will be added unto you

—————————–

The difference between taking baby steps and acting small, Ferial, is that one prepares you for success, the other for a fall.

—————————–

Short term gains, Ferial, that don’t feel good and make sense, can lead to long term pains. Get smart!

—————————–

What if loneliness was simply a feeling of impatience, telepathically sent to you by friends you’ve yet to meet, urging you to go out more, do more, and get involved, so that life’s serendipities could bring you together… Would you still feel alone?
What if illness was just the signal a healthy body sent to urge clarification of your thoughts, feelings, and dreams… Would you still, at times, think of yours as diseased?

What if feelings of uncertainty and confusion were only reminders that you have options, that there’s no hurry, and that everything is as it should be… Would you still feel disadvantaged?

What if mistakes and failures only ever happened when your life was about to get better than it’s ever been before… Would you still call them mistakes and failures?

And what if poverty and lack were simply demonstrations of your manifesting prowess, as “difficult” to acquire as wealth and abundance… Would they still cause you to feel powerless?

—————————–

Whenever something doesn’t work out the way you thought it would, Ferial, instead of thinking that something went wrong, see it as something that went unexpectedly well, but for reasons that are not yet apparent.


Don’t give up now…


Synchronicity..the magic

Isn’t it amazing how much we miss seeing the reality of what happens in our lives? If we only watch our lives as if it was a movie on TV and start paying attention on how situations, incidents, experiences we go through come together and interconnect..Yes, everything is connected and what you have been through 10 years ago is actually what got you to where you stand now..

I noticed this before, but I tend to forget sometimes..I forget how amazingly everything is harmonious -the good and the bad- and how smart is the divine force to put everything in perfect order. The road you’re walking today is made of the pavements of yesterday’s. And the road you will walk tomorrow will be made of today’s.

It’s mysterious for me how much energy we spend on resisting and refusing, yet we know the truth of how things work. Why don’t we just get it? Why do we forget? Why do we choose to learn the hard way? I have no answers but this: it’s a journey and I believe the destination doesn’t matter to the Superior Force, what matters is what you do to reach it. We don’t have to get it all, only what means for us.

“There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm. ” ~Willa Cather


Thoughts & Movies

In these movies, I found intriguing thoughts that ring a bell! Let me start with:

A Beautiful Mind: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0268978/

Russel Crowe or Nash might be the eccentric example of someone who over-uses his mind but actually Nash exists in almost everyone of us, when we tend to analyze too much and rationalize everything around us.

Nash: What truly is logic? Who decides reason? My quest has taken me to the physical, the metaphysical, the delusional, and back. I have made the most important discovery of my career – the most important discovery of my life. It is only in the mysterious equations of love that any logic or reason can be found…

So, the Mind is not the place where absolute truth lies. The heart is..The mind is Limited, The Heart is not..

Dr. Rosen: You can’t reason your way out of this!
Nash: Why not? Why can’t I?
Dr. Rosen: Because your mind is where the problem is in the first place!

And if the reasons of the mind sound logic, the reasons of the heart & soul sound authentic..

Alicia: How big is the universe?
Nash: Infinite.
Alicia: How do you know?
Nash: I know because all the data indicates it’s infinite.
Alicia: But it hasn’t been proven yet.
Nash: No.
Alicia: You haven’t seen it.
Nash: No.
Alicia: How do you know for sure?
Nash: I don’t, I just believe it.
Alicia: It’s the same with love I guess.

At the end, it’s all about Acceptance. There is no good for us to fight and resist back what we hate about ourselves, the good lies in our acceptance, our willingness to let go and move on..

Nash: I’ve gotten used to ignoring them and I think, as a result, they’ve kind of given up on me. I think that’s what it’s like with all our dreams and our nightmares, Martin, we’ve got to keep feeding them for them to stay alive.

Sweet November: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0230838/

What I love about this movie is this Thrill Sarah shows for life, this passion, this excitement and desire to enjoy life as it is!

Sarah: I surrender all attempts to control life, yours or mine. I live for one thing, to make you happy; to live firmly and joyously in the moment.

In this line, Sarah reveals, what I consider, one of the real secrets of happiness. didn’t you notice that only when we stop trying to control everything around us that things get eventually better? and then she adds another enlightening line that invites to even a greater happiness is Living Fully in the moment, getting out of the past nutshell or slowing down the future projection in our minds..

Sarah: If I’ve learned anything it’s that you should have the people who love you, around you as long as you possibly can.

I get distracted sometimes too and forget about how important to be surrounded by people you share love with is, yet whenever you are struggling all you think about is a shoulder to lean on..

Powder: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114168/

Powder is the kind of movie that may seem absurd because of the simplicity of the story but the messages behind are deep and very spiritual.

The idea of Humanity:

Donald Ripley: It has become appallingly clear that our technology has surpassed our humanity. When I look at you, I have hope that maybe one day our humanity will surpass our technology

The idea of Separation:

Powder: Inside most people there’s a feeling of being separate, separated from everything.
Linsey: And?
Powder: And they’re not. They’re part of absolutely everyone, and everything.
