Inner Repatterning for Fast Relief

Emotional issues can play a big role in chronic pain. There are many ways to deal with them, but one of the gentlest is a method called Inner Repatterning, co-developed by EFT Master Tania Prince. It's a blend of mindfulness and energy techniques that doesn't require digging up unpleasant events or memories.

Deep State Repatterning is an AAMET (Association of Meridian Energy Therapies) accredited technique that combines EFT/ NLP and Inner Child Work. DSR works on issues passed down through the generations (ancestors) of the family as well as with past life issues. This excerpt is from the EFT Masterclass held in the UK and can be found in its entirety at EFTdvdOfTheMonth.com This DVD is also available to purchase singularly.

Rumi - The Meaning of Love




Venga el amor de un lugar de la tierra o venga de los cielos, al final nos lleva allí.



Cuando llego al Amor mismo, cualquier cosa que pueda decir para hablar de él y para explicarlo, me avergüenza.



Aunque el comentario de la palabra aclara las cosas, el amor sin palabras tiene más claridad.



A pesar de que la pluma se apresura en escribir, al llegar al Amor queda interrumpida (se rompe).



Hablando del Amor, el intelecto se queda impotente, tal como un asno acostado en el lodo: el Amor es el único que ha dado la explicación del amor y de la suerte (destino) de los enamorados.



La prueba del sol es él mismo: si buscas la prueba ¡no la pierdas de vista!

NEUROLOGÍA- Los bebés dejan de llorar. El efecto de los brazos maternos


- Disminuye la actividad del sistema nervioso, motor y la frecuencia cardiaca.
-El lloro del bebé es un mecanismo de defensa no un intento de manipulación.
- Los investigadores animan a cogerle en brazos para cubrir sus necesidades.




Nada como los brazos de una madre para consolar a su bebé, sobre todo si ésta le acuna mientras camina. Por primera vez, un estudio indaga en las razones por las que este gesto innato es capaz de calmar el llanto del recién nacido y descubre que, más allá de la relación afectiva, existe una explicación científica basada en un mecanismo fisiológico.

Los efectos son inmediatos. "Se reduce la actividad del sistema nervioso y la del motor. La frecuencia cardiaca disminuye" y el bebé se tranquiliza. Así lo observaron los autores de la investigación después de examinar a 12 niños sanos entre uno y seis meses de vida. "Grabamos su ritmo cardiaco cuando se les tumbaba en la cuna y mientras la madre les llevaba en brazos, sentada o caminando".

El electrocardiograma desveló claras diferencias. Entre la cuna y el calor de los brazos, mejor esta segunda opción. Y entre el calor de su madre sentada o caminando, los pequeños prefieren el movimiento. Cuando su progenitora se sentaba con el niño en brazos, su ritmo cardiaco se aceleraba, lloraba y no paraba de moverse. En cuanto se levantaba y se trasladaba, sus constantes descendían inmediatamente y el bebé se mostraba más tranquilo. Sin embargo, al sentarse de nuevo, el recién nacido volvía a quejarse.

En definitiva, reclamar los brazos de la madre y preferir el movimiento no es un capricho ni tampoco que el bebé haya aprendido a exigir a conciencia. Como subrayan los investigadores en su artículo, publicado en la revista 'Current Biology', se trata de una necesidad fisiológica, "un mecanismo de defensa" propio de los mamíferos.

Kuroda y su equipo, de Riken Brain Institute (Saitama, Japón), también desarrollaron este experimento con crías de ratón durante sus primeras semanas de vida. El efecto calmante de los brazos maternos en movimiento era el mismo. Dejaron de llorar y se mostraron más relajadas. Al igual que otras especies como los gatos y los leones, las crías adoptaban la postura fetal, flexionando las piernas.

Los investigadores apuntan a un sentido del tacto y de la 'propiopercepción', un término que alude a la capacidad de reaccionar cuando la madre toca al bebé e incluso cuando notan los movimientos corporales de su progenitora.


El movimiento relaja


"Los bebés se sienten más cómodos cuando les cogemos de pie y siempre les relaja el movimiento", afirma Mara Cuadrado, psicóloga infantil del Colegio Oficial de Psicólogos de Madrid. A esto se suma que si la persona que los mece es su madre, los resultados son inmediatos. "Con quien se vincula el bebé es con quien más le coge cuando nace, con quien le cuida, le protege y le alimenta". Pero la unión comienza a forjarse mucho antes, durante la gestación, "cuando el sonido que más escucha es la voz de su madre, su ritmo cardiaco, incluso percibe su temperatura". Ese vínculo se refuerza después, "con la forma en la que su madre le coge (diferente de la de los demás) y otras variables como el olor, algo que el bebé detecta nada más nacer".

Dados los resultados del estudio, cuando el lloro es un mecanismo de defensa, como ocurre en los recién nacidos, no hay que escatimar en mimos. De hecho, según los investigadores, podría ayudar a prevenir los traumatismos derivados del síndrome del bebé zarandeado. "El mayor factor de riesgo de esto es el lloro inconsolable de un bebé".

El niño no deja de llorar, los padres o los cuidadores ya no saben qué hacer, se frustran, "se crispan y pueden zarandear al pequeño creyendo que no le van a hacer daño", explica Gustavo Lorenzo, neurólogo del Hospital Ramón y Cajal de Madrid. Sin embargo, "puede producir daños cerebrales, ataques epilépticos y trastornos del habla, entre otros problemas del desarrollo neurológico, incluso la muerte".

"La explicación científica de esta respuesta infantil ayudará a los padres a entender su lloro, no como un intento de manipulación, sino como una necesidad fisiológica" que está reclamando brazos y que es importante cubrir, remarca Kuroda. "Resulta beneficioso tanto para la madre como para el bebé".

Aunque todo en su justa medida, coinciden la psicóloga y el neurólogo. "El niño puede acabar acostumbrándose a ser excesivamente bien recibido y el llanto deja de ser un mero mecanismo de defensa".

Charles Limb: el cerebro cuando improvisa

El músico e investigador Charles Limb se preguntó cómo funciona el cerebro durante la improvisación musical. Y para averiguarlo puso a músicos de jazz y raperos en un escáner de resonancia magnética funcional. Lo que él y su equipo encontraron tiene profundas consecuencias para nuestra comprensión de todo tipo de creatividad.



The scientists found that a region of the brain known as the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, a broad portion of the front of the brain that extends to the sides, showed a slowdown in activity during improvisation. This area has been linked to planned actions and self-censoring, such as carefully deciding what words you might say at a job interview. Shutting down this area could lead to lowered inhibitions, Limb suggests.

The researchers also saw increased activity in the medial prefrontal cortex, which sits in the center of the brain’s frontal lobe. This area has been linked with self-expression and activities that convey individuality, such as telling a story about yourself.

“Jazz is often described as being an extremely individualistic art form. You can figure out which jazz musician is playing because one person’s improvisation sounds only like him or her,” says Limb. “What we think is happening is when you’re telling your own musical story, you’re shutting down impulses that might impede the flow of novel ideas.”

You have every reason to be in high spirits

04/24/2013 by John Smallman

Humanity’s awakening from the illusion into Reality is a done deal — it always has been, ever since the moment of creation.  Reality is where you reside permanently, and you are presently returning home there, from a seemingly long and arduous journey to a most glorious welcome.  You have every reason to be in high spirits.  Nevertheless, at the moment it is difficult for the majority of you to perceive this because the length of time that you have spent away from home has severely dulled your memory of the glory awaiting you there.
Life in the illusion has been exhausting.  There have been many painful lessons that you chose to learn while engaged with it, and they have required much energy, determination, and persistence.  Nevertheless, you have remained true to yourselves and your purpose as you struggled with the experiences that life in the illusion presented to you.  Often, that has not been clear as you suffered the pain and sadness caused by the apparent separation from your Father, and at times it seemed to you that yours was a lost cause: “Was there really a heavenly Father, an infinite Source, a divine and all-powerful Intelligence, or was He simply an illusion?”  Well, you held to your paths – all different, but leading to the same goal: to awaken into Reality – and you will find amazing rewards when you complete them and arrive home.  Hang in there for these last few stretches of the journey that seems so interminable; the end is close.
A new day of brilliance and color unlike anything that humanity has ever experienced is set to dawn, bringing you unmitigated joy as all your fears and anxieties fall away, leaving permanent peace, harmony and contentment to replace them.  This is the day you have all yearned, prayed, and hoped for since you started searching for the divine Reality from which it seemed you had been excluded, shut out, perhaps even exiled, with no hope of return due to your sinfulness.  But as you know, deep within yourselves where the divine and inextinguishable flame of God’s Love for you resides, “sinfulness” is of the illusion and has no place in Reality.  You are immortal divine beings, created in Love, who chose to play with an absence of Love, separated from It, as you experimented with the freedom and power with which God had endowed you.
You were created One with Him and chose to individuate to experience the thrill of separation and apparent independence from Him.  This could only be done by building an illusion, an unreal environment in which to imagine that state, and the powerful abilities with which you had been endowed enabled you to do so.  The time has come for you to dismantle that unreal environment and return Home, leaving behind all the trauma and suffering that you invented to amuse yourselves.  Little did you understand when you decided to play these games how painful and terrifying they were going to be.
There is only God!  All life is part of God, He is all that exists, and without Him there would be nothing – an impossible, implausible, and inconceivable state of affairs.  So to build an imaginary and illusory reality separate from Him could only lead to terror.  And consequently, you have all experienced terror.
The real state of Love in which you are eternally enveloped is permanent, changeless, utterly wonderful.  That is why thought of change is so traumatic for so many of you.  Your move into the illusion was a change of inconceivable magnitude which caused you instant trauma, as life was reduced from a condition of total loving abundance and harmony to one of unimaginable lack where it seemed that you had to fight constantly for your very survival.  And that fear remains.
However, within the illusion change is not only possible, it is essential for your well-being.  The illusion is formed from a collection of judgmental beliefs of right and wrong, good and bad, acceptable and unacceptable, which can only induce fear and dread.  You call it duality, a state of either/or, whereas Reality is a state of and/and, oneness, indiscriminate loving acceptance, in which all are welcome, all belong, all reside in utter joy.
What you have to change are your outworn and inflexible beliefs — beliefs that you are separate, individual, unconnected, and threatened by one another.  They divide and traumatize you, encouraging you to build barriers between yourselves that disguise who you really are and present an image, a shield behind which you can hide.  But these images terrify you all; they are threatening and demanding, requiring you to defend them from aggression which is almost always present.  They force you, out of fear, to maintain the unreal state of separation that caused the fear in the first place. A catch-22 situation.
The new energies are intensifying so that you can feel them, embrace them, and through them recognize and reclaim your oneness with each other in Love and Trust.  You will become aware, fully aware, that all are one, that all are interconnected through the divine field of Love in which all that exists resides permanently, harmoniously, joyfully, forever.  And then you will have awakened.
With so very much love, Saul.
PS. If you are feeling down from time to time, then don’t forget that you are permanently on-line with the LILAC Network, and tune in. See the “Musings” tab on this blog.

Fear is an illness, and it is healed by Love, compassion, forgiveness, and acceptance

The purpose of an illusion is to capture your full attention in order to distract you so that you do not see something the illusionist wants to keep hidden, unseen, and unrecognized by you.  And you are the illusionist!  You wanted God to remain hidden, unseen, unrecognized.  And the illusion that you built has worked extremely well.  However, the vast majority of humanity has had its fill — the value of novelty wears off — and now wants and intends to see and recognize what has been hidden.  That intent is completely in alignment with the Will of God, and therefore cannot fail to be achieved; consequently, humanity will awaken, and into eternal joy.
Your divine destiny is inevitable, but you have free will and can therefore delay your arrival, your awakening indefinitely if you choose to do so — remember that time is also illusory!  Not releasing your baggage — all the emotional “stuff” that has accumulated over the eons, and your many earth lifetimes — delays you. With the new energies enveloping the Earth, and consequently surrounding and affecting everyone on the planet, all that stuff is bursting into your awareness from your inner depths where it has been hidden, causing unsettling emotional disturbances or inner turmoil. All that you need to do is acknowledge it without dwelling on it, and allow it to pass on, as it will.  You no longer need any of it (you never really did!), and engaging with it and attempting to make sense of it is a big distraction for you.  Just allow it to flow through and it will.  Yes, it is uncomfortable – like pulling a splinter or a thorn out of your flesh, it hurts – but if you do not remove it, it festers and becomes infected, far more painful, and demands even more of your attention lest it become gangrenous.
Again, it is your choice whether to dwell on it or let it go, and that is where forgiveness achieves wonders because it is the healing balm par excellence. When you have been offended or abused, your egos rise to protect you, insisting that you require and deserve restitution, while demanding recognition of and punishment for the one who has hurt you.  It is a natural human response.  However, if you dwell on the offense or abuse by remembering with bitterness the pain it caused, the emotional charge it carries is further energized leading to resentment and anger which eats away at you, making peace or contentment impossible.
When you choose to forgive the perpetrator — and to make that choice you need to see the event, the incident from a new perspective — healing occurs and your pain starts to reduce.  Your intent to forgive strengthens further and the pain dissolves.  You can of course remember what happened, but it no longer causes you pain and you do not dwell on it because there are happier and more interesting things to occupy your mind.
If forgiveness seems impossible for you to even consider then ask your guides or angels for help.  Describe what happened as though you were telling a close friend, and then release to them the story you have just told with the intent that the emotional charge you are holding be released.  Your intent is an amazingly powerful tool but it certainly helps to ask for assistance from those in the spiritual realms when setting it or using it.  And they are always there ready and willing to assist.
Often when you share a story of abuse or pain with a friend they will commiserate with you, take your side, and agree that what occurred was indeed unconscionable.  That is in a way what friends are for, in the moment.  But afterwards, when you want to free yourself from the pain, retelling the story also strengthens your sense of being victimized, disabling your ability to view the event from a perspective that allows you to recognize the intense pain being experienced by your abuser, who is calling out for love, and your own deep, though hidden, desire to forgive.
Truly, because you are divine beings, beings of Love, your innermost desire is to share and extend your Love indiscriminately and unconditionally through compassion, understanding, healing, and forgiveness.  However, since you built the illusion you have hidden that part of yourselves, the major part of yourselves, from your egoic selves which find it threatening and terrifying.  The egoic part of you believes that the world is a very dangerous place, and it is constantly presented with evidence to prove that this is so.  You have probably noticed that those who appear more calm and more at peace with themselves are generally far less ego-driven than those who are driven by commitments and deadlines that absolutely must be honored.  And that the former are far less accident and incident prone than the latter.
What you expect you bring into your lives; it is as simple as that.  How many times have you said or heard someone say when an accident or mishap occurs: “I knew that would happen?”  So change your expectations in order to change your life — and change the world!  The illusion encourages fear; it broadcasts fear to whomever will pay attention, and it basks in the belief of fear, to which so many humans are enslaved.  If you release fear you cannot be driven or controlled.  And when, despite your fear, you do something that frightens you, then the trepidation you expected to feel will be far less than you had imagined.
Fear is a method of control that is used to great effect, and ironically, often the most fearful are those whose lives appear to be the most secure.  Within the illusion nothing makes sense.  The prevailing ethos is “Love is weak! — Avoid it! — Conquer your fears by being strong, forceful, demanding, certain, and inflexible!”  But Love is like the ocean pounding on the rocks.  The ocean is flexible, dynamic, yielding, all-enveloping, and the rocks get worn away.
Fear is an illness, and it is healed by Love, compassion, forgiveness and acceptance.  Engage with the Love of God, the Love of yourselves, and the Love of all creation, and bring yourselves forward to awakening — which is your inevitable and unavoidable destiny, constantly waiting to welcome you home.
Your loving brother, Jesus.

Awake in a Sleepy World

By Jennifer Hoffman – April 22, 2013

http://enlighteninglife.com/awake-in-a-sleepy-world/



As a child I had a recurring dream in which I was the only person alive in the world. I walked through quiet streets, looking for people, but no one was there. It was a scary dream because I was very alone and there was no one to talk to or take care of me.

Now, as an adult, I know that this dream related to what many Indigos and Crystals experience, being awake in a world that is partly or totally asleep. This knowing is experienced as feeling very alone, unsupported, misunderstood and without strong, deep connections to like-spirited people. By being born awake we’re very aware of others’ state of sleepiness and since we’re unable to connect to them, we feel very much alone.

But this may be a misperception on our part because we aren’t necessarily here to wake them up; rather, we can give them reasons to awaken when we have the right perception of our own state of being awake.

Indigos and Crystals, both the older generations and certainly the ones born since the early 1990s were born awake, meaning that they know there is more to life and living than what we are aware of with our physical senses. Most are highly intuitive, empathic and sensitive, which is both a blessing and a challenge.

A blessing because they perceive the world in a much more profound, enlightened and spirit-filled way. A challenge because they are also aware of how many people in the world are sleepy, unaware and not aware that they are not aware. And they feel they should do something about it to wake people up and make a difference in the world. But does that mean waking people up or letting them sleep until they’re ready? Who decides when it’s time for this to happen?

Some Indigos feel they should be the blaring alarm clock, others are more comfortable being like the snooze button. Some Crystals wait for the world to awaken before they do anything, others lose themselves in their despair over a world that needs love but is not open to it. The challenge they, and all those who are awake, must rise to is being the difference in a world that needs to see a new path before it is willing to consider it as an option to the existing ones.

Being awake makes us aware of what needs to be changed in the world. The truth we learn, which sometimes leads us into thinking our efforts are not appreciated, is that people awaken when they feel ready, and not before. Being the difference is what will wake the world up to its own potential.

We are the difference when we show the world the possibilities that are available, not by telling them they are asleep but by showing them what it is to be awake. When we present an alternative that is so compelling and so much more fulfilling than being asleep, the world will awaken because it will have a reason to (something we don’t understand when we’re already awake).

Being born awake doesn’t necessarily mean that we need to tell the world it’s asleep until it decides to awaken from its slumber. Instead, see it as having the ability, mindset, gifts and understanding to show the world why it is much more joyful and fulfilling to be awake instead of being asleep, and the world will choose to wake up.

The Rebel Pattern by Jay Earley, Ph.D.


This is one of the interesting patterns in the Power Dimension of the Pattern System.

If you have the Rebel Pattern, you tend to rebel against people in authority by resisting or fighting against what they want from you, whether it is actually bad for you or not. You tend to oppose people by being rigid and confrontational, and this often leads to arguments or power struggles. You feel like people are trying to control or dominate you even when they aren't. You then get angry and defiant just for the sake of being right.

Of course, it is healthy to oppose an edict that really isn't good for you or one that is imposed in a domineering way. But you tend to think that most people are doing this, or at least most authority figures. You haven't learned how to distinguish the times when you really need to defend yourself from being dominated vs. those times when this is unnecessary.

You may also react with defiance when you feel like you are being intruded upon or smothered. However, you tend to see almost everyone as intentionally doing this to you. You don't just set limits when they are really necessary; you set them most of the time. And you tend to do it in an angry, self-righteous way.

You may play devil's advocate automatically argue the opposite side of any point of view that is put forward. It is difficult for you to simply agree with someone, even when you truly do, inside. You may actually enjoy engaging in arguments or fighting against what you consider to be injustice. Of course, there is plenty of injustice in the world. But do you like to get righteously angry about harmful actions without making any proactive attempts to create harmony and fairness? If this is true, you may have a Defiant Pattern.

When someone is overly controlling, can you respond to them in a way that will be most effective in getting them to change? Or do you tend to get hostile, or dogmatically dig in your heels? Even if you are justified in fighting back, do you do this in the most effective way to get what you really want? Or do you engage in a power struggle just for the sake of it?

You may also rebel against a part of you that tells you what to do. This defiance takes the form of refusing to do something that you have decided is important to do. This is also an attempt to preserve your autonomy, but now it is directed inward at a part that you perceive as being overly demanding and controlling.

Or you may rebel against a part of you that is trying to control your impulsive behavior (such as over-eating or drinking too much). The rebellion may take the form of binge eating or drinking, just to prove that you won't be controlled by this part. This kind of inner rebellion often happens whether or not the other part of you is really being too controlling.

To Change Your Mind is to Change the World by Dr. Linda Steiner

In the last few weeks we have, once again, been presented with various examples of the vulgar and violent abuses we perpetrate against one another. From the Boston bombings to the cyber-promotion of violence against women – we continue to lament over our convictions that a peaceful and loving end is in nowhere in sight. We respond to these events with anger, sadness, hopelessness and fear – and perhaps worst of all – we respond with apathy toward a world gone awry. Our overwhelming sense of helplessness only compounds the struggle, culminating in a collective sigh over our burdens to bear.

While I could write volumes on why men abuse women and then proudly boast about their perceived “conquests” – what good would it really do? Would it really help to espouse, once again, that we are a society that sanctions and glorifies violence, power, domination and greed? And what would it accomplish, to once again, point out that males who abuse females are not so much psychopathic individual personalities as successful bi-products of a psychopathic social structure that teaches and rewards males who conform to social expectations of brutality?

Are we finally prepared to acknowledge the symbiotic link between war, football, hunting, industrial farming, inhumane business practices, violent video-game/movie/television content and the tragic outcomes we encounter or learn about on the nightly news? I’ve honestly become resolved to the fact that we’re simply not making the link between what we mindlessly engage in and accept and the daily tragedies that we continue to face.

While watching the news last week, we listened to the “experts” question whether the Boston act of terrorism was “domestic” or “foreign”. And again I ask…what’s the difference? Is the act any less heinous if committed by an American vs. foreign born individual or group? We still haven’t realized the full measure of how our preoccupation with these inconsequential subtleties reflect our immaturity as a global population and fuel the very conflicts we so desperately oppose.

As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” But we still haven’t internalized the gravity of this realization. We are still very much immersed in the “us” vs. “them” mindset. As long as we remain resolved to conceptualize the world in this way – we’ll be hindered in our progress as a human community. Just like the convict dragging around a ball and chain – we’ll remain shackled to the false premise of duality.

So once again – for what it’s worth – we are not separate and wayward travelers – adrift in space – alone and abandoned. We are ONE. The thoughts, feelings and actions of one are inextricably connected to the thoughts, feelings and actions of all. We must stop focusing on the minutia of specific and singular events and broaden our perspectives so that the BIG picture can come clearly into view.

We must reflect – deeply – about our interconnectedness and stop dwelling in the realm of individual conflict and the assignment of blame. We must realize that we each bear the responsibility to mindfully contribute the full measure of our potential in every moment of every day – in every situation and with every person, animal, plant, and rock we encounter.

Due to no fault of our own, we have forgotten who we really are. Having spent generation upon generation living under the socially program-induced paradigm of struggle, violence, hatred and fear – we have lost our identities and the power of our social consciousness has become disenfranchised. And while I would argue that none of us came out of the womb aspiring to the lowest order of human potential – our orientation and induction into the mentality of victimization has obscured our ability to envision a different and more loving existence.

Unity is not merely a “concept”. Unity is a verb – denoting action. To unify is to bring together – to meld into a cohesive whole. Unity cannot, by definition, be accomplished in segments. Like a circle, it must be continuous – without beginning or end – without angles or diametrically opposed points.

If you’ve grown weary of the violence, abuse and fear scenario – then change your perspective to one of peace, love, equity and joy. Changing your “outlook” will result in your change in behavior and the choices you make. These changes will trigger a domino-effect of social transformation that will catch like wild-fire until the whole of the global population has been ignited with the energy of Oneness. In short – to change your mind is to change the world.

To withhold forgiveness is like embracing cancer



04/21/2013 by John Smallman

In the spiritual realms much has been transpiring as the new energies enveloping Earth have strengthened and intensified to assist in humanity’s imminent awakening. Yes, it is imminent! Much has been promised to you, and the moment for delivery is approaching rapidly. Nevertheless there is much to do to complete the essential preparations prior to the arrival of this divine and long-awaited event, and every one of you has an important part to play. It is largely about releasing judgment and embracing forgiveness, especially as your awareness of the misbehavior and betrayal perpetrated by those whom you have trusted grows in direct proportion to the number of whistle-blowers releasing previously hidden information about deceit and corruption in high places, and abuse of their positions by those holding them.

What has been done, in many cases, is quite unconscionable, but you are all divine beings, created in Love from Love, and you all chose to experience separation from your divine state. The result has been great suffering. There is no one embodied on Earth at this time in your evolution who, as Jesus tells us in the bible, “is without sin,” and therefore there is no one who is capable of making an honest, unbiased, and fair appraisal of anyone else’s behavior. Judgment should be left to God because He judges everyone as sinless and sees only their divine perfection.

Unconditional forgiveness is the essential path to awakening, along with the peaceful containment and restraint of those who would continue, unless so contained, to abuse others. Love, the Source-field in which creation occurs, accepts all, regardless of their sins, and by doing so dissolves the anger and resentment that leads people to sin.

“Sin” occurs when someone feels unloved, unaccepted, uncared-for, despised, inadequate, unworthy, shamed, or rejected. It is a desperate call for attention, loving attention, that has been ignored or dismissed. Everyone has at some time experienced that, and everyone knows what a wonderful sense of joy and comfort is experienced when unconditional acceptance replaces those unloving and fear-inducing conditions. So everyone knows, deep within themselves, that unless they wholeheartedly embrace forgiveness and offer it unconditionally to all whom they believe have in any way offended or abused them they will continue to be devoured or eaten away by bitterness, resentment, and anger.

It is a vicious circle because those who hold on to bitterness, resentment, and anger are resisting Love, frequently believing that they are unlovable, and then often feeling driven to behave like those whom they find themselves unable to forgive. To withhold forgiveness is like embracing cancer because it eats away at its host, preventing the experiences of happiness, joy, or contentment, and replacing them with an embittered but misplaced sense of satisfaction in the righteous refusal to forgive. You have an expression “biting off your nose to spite your face,” which is quite appropriate here.

To become peaceful, to experience peace, it is essential to forgive, freely and unconditionally. Many feel that this is impossible because they have been so abused, have suffered so severely, and believe that peace and contentment are only possible for them if they receive restitution and know that their abuser has been suitably punished. But it does not work. When justice has been delivered the pain remains, and the bitterness that the abuse aroused continues to grow. When the bitterness is encouraged and believed to be a right and a privilege onto which the victim can hold then no restitution is ever enough. The complaint “no one can give me back what was taken away” is quite true. But focusing on that violation of one’s personal sovereignty instead of releasing it means that life passes the victims by as they retain the memory of their violation as their most treasured possession.

Forgiving allows a person to move on, to re-engage with life, and to find solace and comfort where they possibly least expected to find it, namely, in the release of the extremely heavy burden that not forgiving entails. By forgiving you release that unbearable emotional burden which can never be released in any other way. Support groups often aggravate the burden by encouraging undue amounts of introspection and discussion which can strengthen the sense of being wronged instead of lightening the load you are carrying, as is their purpose. By forgiving you open your hearts to receive the abundance of Love that constantly enfolds you, waiting for you to accept It. The lightness that you will experience as a consequence of truly forgiving someone who has hurt you will amaze you.

Forgiveness is a great healer and humanity needs healing. Embrace it and enjoy the peace, the satisfaction, and the contentment — never mind the relief — that doing so allows and provides.

With so very much love, Saul.

Marianne Williamson on What's Wrong with the World

Marianne Williamson on THE LAW OF DIVINE COMPENSATION

Spring is in the air, and so is change of a most magnificent kind



April 21, 2013 by John Smallman

The Oneness that is God has all of creation enfolded within It; It is the infinite field of divine Love where all Wisdom, all Knowledge, all Consciousness has its eternal existence. It is a state of utter joy, peace, and contentment, where no one is, or can ever be in any way, bereft. It is Reality, where all are free to create abundantly with the skills and abilities that God has bestowed upon them, and delight in the results.

It is into this sublime state that humanity is to awaken. Your present state of sleep, constantly interrupted by dreams and nightmares that you experience as real and substantive, no longer serves you, and so you have chosen to wake up into the refreshing, stimulating, and exhilarating state of wonder from which you chose to briefly hide yourselves but a moment ago. It seems to you that you have been experiencing this imaginary reality for a very long time – and in “time” you have – but it has been only momentary, as you will discover when you wake up. And then your joy and amazement will be boundless and unceasing. Reality is always amazing because it places you in the Presence of the infinite, all-loving Source, which created you solely to experience eternal joy, amazement, and wonder — and so you will.

Many of you are feeling out of sorts, bored with the lives you are presently experiencing, and wondering if there is any way to improve them, to make them satisfying and uplifting, while you see all around you people, loved ones, strangers, even yourselves, struggling with anxiety and suffering which, it seems, continues interminably, and for which there appears to be no relief. In fact, you have come to see the illusion for what it is: a place in which those states are endemic. You want to wake up, you intend to wake up, and daily more and more are making the choice to do so and thereby changing the collective will of humanity. As the collective will changes, your dissatisfaction intensifies, because your awareness of the unacceptability of the present living conditions of so many on Earth becomes far clearer. To allow such painful life experiences for so much of humanity to continue unresolved has become unacceptable to you.

It is that intent, that desire that is intensifying and thereby ensuring that the collective intent of humanity changes, and it is that collective intent that creates the space, the environment in which you find yourselves. Spring is in the air, and so is change of a most magnificent kind. The power of your collective intent is immense, and whereas until recently it had been scattered, divided, angry, and fearful, it is now coming into alignment with a loving intent to establish peace, health, and abundance for all on the planet through harmonious cooperation and understanding. Since December last year an enormous shift in intent has occurred all across the world, and the effects of that are beginning to show.

It has become impossible for those who would control the world to accommodate their own self-centered agendas by keeping them hidden or under wraps any longer. The truth is coming out, and for those who would hide and suppress it, that is alarming; in fact, it is terrifying. But there is no going back; the veil of corporate secrecy has been lifted and is now being removed altogether. Corporate secrecy has been a major but largely unacknowledged aspect of all your worldly organizations since time immemorial, and it is now in the process of being dissolved. Enormous worldly power centers are crumbling, and their collapse is imminent. That power has always been illusory, but because people generally believed in it and accepted it, it appeared to have substance.

As the information and the technology, which will make it possible to overcome disease permanently and provide abundantly for all on Earth while repairing the enormous planetary damage that has occurred over the last few hundred years, is made known and shared widely and freely, the ability to control large numbers of people through fear and the threat of confiscation of their assets will be removed. Each one of you is a sovereign being, created by God to enjoy to the full the fruits of life through the intelligence of consciousness, creativity, and harmonious cooperation, and you are now in the process of rediscovering and reclaiming for yourselves the respect and dignity of that inalienable state in which you were created.

As you have been told, over and over again, Love is the life-force, the power, and the creative drive which provides the answer to every question or problem that arises. Love accommodates, accepts, harmonizes, and integrates, smoothing the path to Unity by clarifying any issues that could cause division. Love is the gold standard which brings all into alignment so that conflict and disagreement cannot bring their destructive elements into play to disturb the eternally smooth-running brilliance of Reality. And Love is leading you steadily and inevitably towards your awakening. Let Love, your true nature, guide you in every moment, and experience the peace, along with the lack of stress and anxiety that doing so provides. It is your inalienable right!

Your loving brother, Jesus.

FROZEN SHOULDER EXERCISES

















http://www.google.es/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CDsQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.frozenshoulder.ca%2Ftrigenics.html&ei=PmpxUcGtJIGohAf8rYCYDg&usg=AFQjCNHBNCwOQQo2SJZb8C7lvzg96mbhzw&sig2=SP40QacR6hwXxMITxzzWXw&bvm=bv.45373924,d.ZG4

How could you possibly be unworthy of the substance of your being?




There is no such thing as “failure.” It is just another aspect of the illusion that you use to beat yourself up – or others! Just let it go, like all other forms of judgment which serve only to distract you from being yourself — namely Love.

That is what you are; you have just forgotten and have come to believe that you need to receive It, when in fact you always have It in abundance. If you do not experience It, that is because you have chosen to judge yourselves as being without It, in need of It, and by making that judgment you have effectively chosen to block It out, believing yourselves unworthy of It. And so you seek It, frequently in ways that cannot possibly help you to find It.

How could you possibly be unworthy of the substance of your being? You were created in Love, by Love, from Love – there is nothing else – which is just another word that signifies God, the Source of all that exists, and of which every sentient being is an essential and inseparable part. Separation from that Source is inconceivable, unachievable, utterly impossible. You are constantly and eternally one with God, period. No further discussion of this divine truth has any meaning. You are all eternally loved and cherished by your heavenly Father, and nothing can change that, ever.

Quite often, a large quantity of the time that you think you are spending reasoning or thinking logically about an issue is in fact spent in judgment, self-doubt, and self-justification, as you try to convince yourself — “I know I am right, this is right and I need to explain to him where he is at fault” — leading to resentment, anger, and depression, as you realize that you cannot change the other person’s perception. Of course you can change your own, but to do so would be a sign of weakness, an admission that you were wrong and that he was right!

Stop taking things personally because doing so just loads you up with anger and resentment which eat away at your self-respect and self-esteem, making you feel bad about yourself. When you make the choice to cease taking things personally you cease to be offended; you feel freer, lighter, and life flows more smoothly and easily for you. Much of your discontent, your dissatisfaction with life comes from allowing what others say or do to upset you. And you tend to be very good at justifying those feelings : “How could he have said or done that, does he not see how he has hurt me? It’s so unfair!”

When you choose not to be offended you are effectively accepting yourself instead of accepting another’s nonacceptance of you. When you accept yourself, instead of trying to justify yourself to yourself, you place yourself in a position from which you can observe yourself with kindness and compassion. Then you are able to become aware of any aspects of yourself that are, or appear to be, unloving and make a choice to release or change them.

Trying to change yourself because someone else has judged an aspect of you as unacceptable does not work. Yes, you may hide or disguise that aspect because it has been so judged (maybe you even feel ashamed of it), but it lives on within you, causing bitterness and resentment because of the judgment from another that you experienced.

After a judgment has been made and accepted, even if you do not agree with it, it is very difficult to look at what has been judged dispassionately; but if you do not take things personally, then another’s judgment will not offend or unsettle you and you will be able to hear it and assess its validity with practical impartiality.

You are all divine beings rediscovering that you are in essence One, even though your present experience is as an individual coping with the problems with which separation presents you – confusion, misunderstanding, conflict, nonacceptance, judgment. And rediscovery of your Oneness occurs when you spend time quietly listening to your intuition, to your spiritual nature, to your true self, lovingly assisted by those in the spiritual realms whom you call on for guidance. You are always enveloped in the field of divine Love, but the busyness of your daily lives distracts you from it, leading you away towards situations of stress and conflict, and other unloving states that hide Reality from you.

When you follow the news, whether through the mainstream media or through alternate sites and networks, much of it is depressing, frightening, and seemingly very real. That is why it is essential that you spend time daily, quietly communicating with your friends in the spiritual realms, and seeking their support and guidance. What they offer you will raise your spirits and reassure you that you are one with them, with God, and that Love is the answer, the only answer in every situation.

For eons you have bought into the enormous fallacy that betrayal, conflict, war, and suffering are inevitable aspects of life on Earth, and this is constantly re-emphasized by the endless twenty-four-hour news cycles reporting on events of that kind. It does not have to be like that; in fact, it is utterly unnatural, but you constructed the illusion to experience separation: an unreal and inconceivable state. And separation is fearful – me … by myself … alone … and under constant threat.

You have tried to establish peace and stability through force of arms, and over the eons that method has proved time and time again that it does not work, because those in power always abuse their positions.

However, the truth of the concept that all are one and that the thoughts, words, and actions of each affects everyone else is finally becoming widely understood, and groups are forming all over the world with the intent to join together in peace, harmony, and love to resolve all your worldly problems. These groups are open to the field of divine Love enveloping the planet and it is influencing them powerfully and effectively.

As these groups grow, develop, intermingle, and communicate – as they are doing, constantly – amazing results will be achieved quite rapidly in the collective move away from enforcement and into peaceful and harmonious cooperation. It is only a very few who wish to maintain the status quo, and their supporters are falling away as the field of divine Love draws ever more of you into its loving and most enticing embrace. A vision of peace and harmony has been developing within humanity that is gaining widespread acceptance and changing forever your collective intent. That vision will be achieved!

Your loving brother, Jesus.

Enlightenment is a Gamble

By Adyashanti

Time to cash in your chips,
put your ideas and beliefs on the table.
See who has the better hand,
you or the Mystery that pervades you.

Time to scrape the mind’s [shzt] off your shoes,
undo the laces
that hold your prison together
and dangle your toes into emptiness.

Once you’ve put everything
on the table;
once all of your currency is gone
and your pockets are full of air,
all you’ve got left to gamble with
is yourself.

Go ahead, climb up onto the velvet top
of the highest stakes table.
Place yourself as the bet,
Look God in the eyes
and finally
for once in your life
lose.

The Foggy Part and Eating Issues


Bonnie Weiss, LCSW

There are a number of distinct parts that typically show up in clients with eating issues. They are most often tangled in a way that make them hard to distinguish and therefore work with. Of course, not everyone has all of these parts, and we try not to reify them by giving them specific names. However, naming their functions often unlocks deeper understanding. It allows movement on previously difficult emotional issues and shifts in historically stuck behaviors.

The Foggy Part is the part that causes a lapse in conscious awareness of your relationship to yourself and what is going on at the moment or what has just happened. It manifests as dullness, confusion, blankness, emptiness, or an absent-minded feeling. Sometimes the Foggy Part can just muck up and confuse things so it feels like you have lost the thread of a conversation. At other times, it appears as complete dissociation, where actual time is lost and you experience having left the room or left your body.

In my Beyond Eating classes, this is an especially important part for people to identify. It provides clarity about a number of very frustrating experiences. When you can name this part, appreciate its function, and develop a working relationship with it, the work opens and there is often significant movement.

How the Foggy Part Manifests

1. As your Indulger Part (the part that overeats) takes over, the Foggy Part may cause you to dissociate and loose consciousness of what you are eating, how much you have consumed, or when you have passed the "full" point. You may lose sensation in your body and fail to feel, for a while, the impact of eating large amounts of food.

2. As you work on yourself to explore your internal system, your Foggy Part may confuse things, cause you to loose track of what you are feeling or working on so you can't productively follow the thread of your inquiry. This Foggy Part seems invested in keeping the system in place and not allowing any consciousness that would threaten change. You may suddenly feels lost, silly, embarrassed, or distracted. You can't remember what you were talking about or why you were bothering to talk about it in the first place.

3. The Foggy Part defends against awareness of deep conflicts around self-care. If you have a strong People-Pleasing Part that focuses attention on others rather than yourself, you may give other people the nurturing they need while ignoring your own needs. Your Foggy Part may prevent you from being aware of yourself while around others, and you may get confused and muddled if asked what you want. Your Foggy Part may be protecting a Vulnerable Part whose needs were not met when you were a child. It expects that if those needs were brought out into the open today they would ignored again.

4. The Foggy Part creates a smoke screen that makes dealing with eating-related issues impossible. If you have a Helpless Part that believes that you can't change, the fog may roll in and distract or confuse you to keep you from exploring this part. The Foggy Part seems to be holding your system in place. Change may be threatening while helplessness is known and safe. The Fog keeps you from exposing deeper needs, vulnerabilities, and trauma that it thinks are too dangerous.

The Master Secret


Beloved one, down through the ages ones have wanted to know, “Who is God? What is God?” There have been definitions; wise ones have come up with an explanation, a description of God, and yet that is not God. They may describe an aspect of God, but not all of God, for to describe and to define God is to limit It.

God is not a him or a her, not even an It as in gender, but an ongoing infinite Energy which is forever expanding from before time began. And after the purpose of time has been fulfilled—believe it or not, there is purpose to time—after that purpose has been fulfilled, you as the one Mind, the extension and expression of the one Mind, will keep on expanding, forever asking—not in words, but in the Beingness of energy—“What more can I experience? What more can I create? Where can I express?”

You will keep on creating universes upon universes within universes, physical and spiritual, to the place where you know yourself truly as spirit; not defined by anything; not limited by anything. And yet you have chosen, volunteered to be within this incarnation to take form, to coalesce the Light and the energy that you are, to take form and to walk with other brothers and sisters who yet believe that there has to be a form that they can reach out and touch, a form that they can see, a form that they can speak with.

You have said, “I will go one more time as the Light and the Love of the Father/Mother/God/Goddess/All That Is and I will speak with my brothers and sisters, but more than that, I will be with them in the essence of All, in the essence of One.

You are a master. We have spoken of this in other days, in other times. You, because you are a master, before this incarnation and before many other incarnations, have looked upon what was happening in the 3D reality—or sometimes 2D—and you have said, “I will go and bring my Light and my wisdom, as much as will be acceptable, into the experience of the whole.” And so, as the master that you are, you have come one more time to serve the Awakening.

I know that you question this. You say, “Well, if I’m here to serve the Awakening and I can see all these issues that are going on, not only in the collective but also in my individual life, how can I be a master? Why, if I am a master, would I ever choose to come into such an experience?”

Well, it is because you are a master that you did choose, and every day you choose. The overall master secret—and it is not a secret; it is for everyone to know—the master secret is choice, the fact that you have choice. You can choose to abide with the news media and say, “Oh, my God, it is so bad. I don’t know how this is ever going to work out. I feel so bad for my brothers and sisters who have to go through the wars and the violence that the news media reports. How is that ever going to lead to an awakening?”

In that moment you have the most wonderful gift: the gift of choice. You can choose to stay in that place where you say how bad it is, or you can say it is completion and demonstration, which truly it is. It is completion, sometimes on the individual level. And many times it is a demonstration for the brothers and sisters to see and to have opportunity to feel empathy, Oneness. Many times ones of the brothers and sisters who are going through great disasters, violence, having all of the family members perhaps giving up the body in most torturous ways, are masters who have volunteered to play that part.

Now, I am not saying that it is easy and I am not saying that they do not suffer, because they do. They know human body experience. They know human emotion. But above and beyond that, the soul of them, the true being of them, is a master who has agreed to play the part so that others can look upon it and see that what is happening is not loving, that it is not of Oneness. It is of division and the un-Truth of separation.

And so when you look upon what your news media will bring to you, you have the moment of identification with what is going on. You understand the appearance. You know what is going on. Then you move into the place, as a conscious choice, to thank them for what they are doing to bring you to the place where you can say, “I am complete with it. I want to be in love. I want to greet everyone in love, and I want to have all misunderstandings resolved to the place of understanding Oneness.”

And when ones will come and bring you an example where there is opportunity to look with human emotion on something, you have the most wonderful master tool of choice. It is so simple that it is overlooked many times. It is simplicity itself to choose; not to react, not to judge, not even to see that there would be something to judge; but to be thankful that they are completing and showing the completion of man’s/woman’s inhumanity to man and woman.

Even on a more personal scale, when you have friends who perhaps see things differently than you do and they bring up the opportunity where you could see divisiveness, you have choice. You can look beyond what they are saying—as you have done—and love them as the being, the true being that they are. The words do not matter.

You do not realize the great power of choice, because separated ego will bring to you the possibility that you could look at this in judgment, saying, “Ah, but it feels so good to stand in judgment because I am superior. I don’t know why they are doing what they are doing, so I’m going to judge,” and so you do, for a moment or so, and that is okay, because now you know you do not have to stay there. You recognize, “I am standing in a place where I don’t have to be. I have the power of choice, of moving out of whatever I have thought the truth—lower case ‘t’—of this situation is, and I have the power of choice to know the Truth—capital ‘T’—of this situation.”

Whether it has to do with relationships and the healing thereof or if it has to do with the body and the healing of the body, you have choice as to how you will look upon it—the healing of the planet, the healing of all of the knowledge that you have brought to this incarnation. You have choice.

Now, as I have said, it is simplicity itself; it is so simple that separated ego often downplays it and says, “Ah, yes, but you know, it really feels good to get a little bit of anger going here. I can spend a minute or two with a few choice words.” And you can. But the wonderful part that I want you to understand is that you have and you do use the power of choice, whether to abide there or to choose to let it go.

I watch you; I see you as you are letting it go more and more quickly as you are choosing to be in a place that says, “I know love. I feel love. This other is only drama. This other is passing,” and it is. “I know the feeling of expansiveness of love, and that is where I choose to abide.”

And once you choose to abide in the space of love, you find yourself laughing at the other part of you that has gotten so worked up about something. There is a quotation in another treatise I have authored that says, “I could choose peace instead of this.”

But this lifetime you have feelings of judgment. You know human emotions. You know how it feels to have judgment, but you also know how to step out of that space. Your beloved friends, the four-footed ones, your beloved pets do not spend much time in judgment. They can have reaction but then it passes very quickly.

Everything that you call forth is there because you have called it forth to give you opportunity to choose, to give you opportunity to have the human emotion that is quite well-trained because of many, many lifetimes, and then to have the power of choice to say, “Well, I can stay really angry at this situation,” or “I don’t think it’s worth the energy.”

Other ones’ judgments, even other ones’ facial expressions belong to them, and if they have certain facial expression that you could interpret as being rather down-putting, you can laugh. They may wonder what you are laughing at, and you can say, “Well, I just remembered something funny,” and you can go on. It changes the whole energy.

The master knows the secret. The secret is choice as to where you will abide. There is no judgment in it: you do not judge yourself for spending a minute, five minutes, five days in a certain place of judgment. And sooner or later—sometimes later—you move out of that space as you have choice and you have power.

That is your power, the power of choice, which you have built into this reality. As I have said, it is so simple that it is often overlooked. And we have spoken many times of the power of the smile. When you are toe to toe with someone and you feel really strongly about what he/she said to you, all of a sudden the idea may come, “I don’t have to resist this. I can smile.” Then you smile, and the other one will ask himself/herself, “What page are they on? They’re not on the same page of the script as I am. They must have skipped forward somewhere.” And then the energy changes.

Try that. The next time when you have a person who is perhaps wanting to give you a hard time, you do not have to take it. You can smile. You can choose to be in the space of true communication—common union—which a smile can bring forth. Or perhaps you can choose to walk away in love.

You do not have to abide in the place of judgment. You do not have to abide in the place that is unpleasant — even a physical place; you can walk away from it. You can speak your truth, knowing that perhaps another one will not hear it quite the way that you are wanting them to hear it. That does not matter. You smile and you walk away from it, sometimes physically, always emotionally.

Many, many lifetimes you have embroiled yourself in drama—heavy, heavy drama—not knowing that there was any other alternative to it. Many lifetimes you have acted according to habitual generational teaching that says if someone throws a stone at you, you have to throw one back at him/her, whether it be physical or whether it be a mental judgment or a word. But now you know you have the power of choice. You can smile with your bright eyes and move on to something that is more pleasant.

You are a great master who is remembering the simplicity of choice, of the power of choice. You can choose where you want to be. You can change your world by your choice as to where you will abide. That is your power.

Abide with me. Laugh often. In the lifetime that is so famous and written about, I laughed often with you, my disciple. For, truly, life can be heavy, but it does not have to be. It can be light and taken lightly, and I chose — as I choose in this day and time as I walk with you and as you — I choose to walk lightly and to laugh often, because the drama is just that, and it is passing and it is evolving.

Choose to look on the bright side of things. Choose to look for the light. Choose ye where you will abide—in light, in love, and with me, always.

So be it.

From Marianne Williamson


Let’s all stop for a moment, close our eyes, and send love and peace to the city of Boston, and to all those affected in any way by the explosions at the Marathon. Simply tune in and send love from your heart to them. We send as well our peace and healing to the person or people who have done this, that they might be awakened to the Light within them and cease all harmful action NOW. Amen.

Dear God,
Please send Your angels to the city of Boston.
Heal all wounds,
Work miracles among the people
and calm their troubled hearts.
Amen

¿Cómo formar un equipo para enfrentar una crisis?
Un grupo de trabajo en el que cada individuo aporta todos sus conocimientos y capacidades puede ser la clave para superar contextos de turbulencia. ¿Cuál es el rol de los jefes?

Por Lic. Daniela Rinconez*

Es tiempo de crisis, es tiempo de vivir con lo nuestro. Ante un contexto con inflación, disminución del consumo y/o retracción de inversiones, es normal y esperable que las empresas disminuyan sus expectativas de cara al mercado y busquen aminorar el impacto sobre sus estructuras.

En estos tiempos, el trabajo en equipo se vuelve esencial. Implica que cada persona debe poner en común sus conocimientos, capacidades, habilidades, información y, en definitiva, sus competencias personales de forma sinérgica para alcanzar los objetivos. Para enfrentar una crisis, es necesario conformar equipos de trabajos que ayuden a sus organizaciones a salir airosas en estos contextos de turbulencias.

Recomendaciones para jefes

1.- Tratar de ser un líder participativo. Se debe trabajar involucrando a sus subordinados y permitiendo el crecimiento y desarrollo de estos.

2.- Establecer metas y objetivos claros. Se debe ser capaz de transmitir estos elementos de la forma más sencilla posible, a efectos que los miembros del equipo visualicen su logro.

3.- Generar espacios de comunicación horizontal. Esto facilitará la dinámica de las interrelaciones y viabilizará la retroalimentación plana entre las partes.

4.- Empoderar a los empleados. Permitir que los colaboradores sean gestores de sus propios espacios y puedan tomar las decisiones operativas que dinamicen las estructuras organizacionales, en tiempos que esto es crucial.

5.- Fomentar una casa de cristal. Busque que la gente actué de forma cristalina, para eso es necesario ser el primero en dar el ejemplo.

6.- Fomentar ambientes de trabajo diversos. Busque perfiles múltiples para armar sus equipos, así la amplitud de personalidades enriquecerá la búsqueda de soluciones ante los problemas que se presentarán.

Es importante recordar que en tiempos de crisis es mucho más difícil automotivarse por la gran presencia de incertidumbre en el ambiente. En este contexto, quienes tenemos responsabilidades de conducción, debemos ser capaces de facilitar ayudar a nuestros colaboradores a superarse laboralmente y, consecuentemente con ello, a cumplir los objetivos de nuestras organizaciones.
