Power Of Freedom

Power Of Freedom

Power Of Freedom

Freedom is not simply a state of being; Freedom is a state of mind.

To live, to be born and experience life in all its glory, beauty and wonders is a birth right of every single human being who enters the sphere of material reality.

Life is a gift to be lived and experienced in all its many facets, from joy to pain, happiness to sadness, the beautiful to the ugly, good & bad, positive to negative, poverty to riches and even from black to white!

Each is a side of the same coin, one side works as a teacher and the other as a student, one is growth and the other is harmonic stillness, or one builds strength while the other defines an experience.

A deep appreciative understanding would not exist without experiencing the sour before tasting the sweet!  If everything was sweet, then how could one know the worth and value of this sweetness if there was nothing else to compare it to?

In experiencing life with awareness and an open mind, we evolve into more awakened beings as our cycle of experiences become ever more challenging, ever more enlightening.

The true Power Of Freedom is to create without inhibition, to speak without fear, to learn with an open mind, to live exactly as desired, to choose without reservation, and to share or offer this gift unconditionally.  It is not something that can be taken from you, for even a prisoner behind thick bars can still be 100% free.

Freedom is a state of mind that allows you to live constantly evolving cycles of experiences for without Freedom one simply cannot evolve!

The Calm Within The Storm

Calm Within The Storm

Calm Within The Storm

Sometimes a storm appears on our path, threatening us as it provokes a feeling of loneliness and darkness.  As a result we feel misunderstood and confused, suddenly finding ourselves drowning in a sea of negativity,  confronted by crossroads, which we cannot even see past the fog of our fears and doubts.

How often has each one of us experienced such storms of change that turn our world upside down?  Yet a powerful storm is indeed a gift – if only we knew!  A storm born from within or from our environment of experience is a cosmic gift for everything to be turned upside down for a hidden and valuable life changing truth to appear.

If we reacted in a panic with deep anxiety over the presence of the storm, we would be too preoccupied with our own fears to see the earth shattering truth that would allow us to choose correctly a new destined path.

There is an Art to becoming the Calm Within The Storm, for serenity, balance and measured silence are the very skills of an aware human being who understands that weathering any storm will turn one stronger, more determined and focused.  Yet once the storm has passed, the light will shine on the new reality and the correct choice that was chosen at the crossroads.

An AwakeConBal practitioner is dedicated to awakening the human multidimensional layers in order to evolve physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually to become The Calm Within The Storm.To understand that nothing can ever touch you without your permission, nothing can ever influence you without your permission and to learn the art of becoming the calm within the storm is a gift that only you can give to yourself.

AwakeConBal: Awakened Child & Parent Playgroup

Awakened Child & Parent

Awakened Child & Parent

The children are our future; they are the continuation of our evolved consciousness! Each parent, no matter how preoccupied with life in general, no matter how hard they work to become the backbone of security, nurturing support and financially provide to the future of the family and the education of their children, should relate and be aware of the following:

  1. In order to allow a healthy, balanced and independently confident development of the child’s physical, mental and emotional awareness, each parent must dedicate at least a few hours a week to work on nurturing those developments as parent and child through fun educational activities.
  2. Although for most of us sending the child to school is a beautiful and rewarding experience, no matter how capable and wonderful a teacher might be, a teacher is unable to give 100% constant attention, nurture and care to every child’s need within her class. Therefore those few hours a week attending an awakened playgroup allows the parent to connect to the child to assess their child’s awareness, development and growth in different areas. This time serves to identify the weak and strong areas of development that may require their nurturing attention.
  3. Building lasting and solid bonds of communication, understanding and trust between child & parent is the focus and aim of the Awakened Playgroups. How can a child be expected to develop and grow to communicate and trust the parents, if the parents were too busy to spend those precious few hours a week to build that bond of trust and correct communication? It is too late once the child has grown and developed with the idea that his/her parents are too busy to listen, understand and support his/her needs,even if the parents were busy to be the financial providers that would secure their future,. To a child, material support has no value and no base, for nothing can equate the love and support of a “PRESENT” parent.
  4. For parents who are home schooling their children, our playgroups are designed specifically for parents who wish to be part of their child’s daily education. At AwakeConBal, we aim to create an environment for a child to mix with other children in order for their social consciousness needs to be met, to increase their social confidence and balance within social surroundings – but at the same time the parent is PRESENT to watch and guide their child’s education, growth and development in their social environment.
  5. The playgroups will focus on learning and developing focus and growth through creativity, arts, music, adventure play and yoga. The child will blossom through learning creatively about social and scientific information –with the aim of surpassing the current curriculum level at local pre-schools.

Intrigued to find out more? Please book an Awakened parent meeting with Lauren: FrontDesk@awakeconbal.com to meet us to talk more about the 3 hour playgroups that will be starting in Jan 2016.

Please note:  AwakeConBal is a bespoke yoga studio based in Chelsea, for small groups only, the Awakened Parent & Child playgroups will be held from 2-5pm from Monday to Friday.  These are private playgroups only @ £60 per session.

Management reserves the right to refuse parent and child entry based on social attitude and norms of child & parent.  These groups are for like-minded parents, specifically aimed for the convenience of parents who are home schooling, who pay great attention to child’s diet, education, environment and creative focused growth and increased intelligence.

A Successful Remedy For Communication Breakdown Between Couples

Phil_Communication Breakdown

Picture
Relationships in all forms are like a flower that requires a constant flow of nurturing, care and attention in order to survive, otherwise like a flower without those vital ingredients it will die.  While romantic relationships however are even more demanding of ones overall commitment.Any relationship stands on five pillars, if at any time any one of these pillars is compromised by circumstance or thoughtless action, the relationship suffers the possible fate of collapsing.  Working for or against those pillars are the emotional commitment, consideration and constancy of each person in the relationship.Those pillars are and in no particular order for they are each as important as one other; Trust, Communication, Respect, Consideration and loyalty, with Love being the emotional drive that motivates and encourages the pillars to hold true.

Yet one of the most common relationship breakdown problems is that of communication, and with most couples believing that a communication breakdown is the result of not opening up and communicating honestly and outright in a relationship, however in fact a breakdown of communication often means that one or both do not know how to listen to one another.  Even though both partners might very well be very verbal and expressive, yet by being incapable to listen in order to understand and absorb the opinion and feelings of the other person creates a communication meltdown, which would then lead to disrespectful attitude and behaviour and inconsideration within the relationship.

AwakeConBal alternative couple therapy is not a psychoanalysis session of the couple, but rather it allows the couple to experiment with productive tailor made activities that would teach them how to listen and communicate with one another with respect, understanding and consideration.

The couple will be taught the art of truly listening to one another, building a solid bridge of communication, learning to stop and appreciate the feelings and opinions of ones life partner and learning how to keep the relationship alive, adventures and romantic with simple measures of attention and care.

The therapy aims to open channels to rekindle romance by reminding the couple of why they came to together in the first place.

The couple session will be private and confidential and with only a few sessions, the couple will be taught how to continue their own self therapy at home to continue with the success and results achieved in the session.

How Is Yoga Beneficial To My Child?

Phil_Benefits Of Child Yoga

Picture
The first question that a non-practising parent might ask is, “What is Yoga?”Yoga is one of the oldest practises that teaches you how to understand yourself and your universe (environment), how to connect to yourself and your universe, how to heal yourself and your universe, how to evolve within yourself and your universe, how to balance yourself and your universe and how to control yourself and your universe all through love, nurturing, kindness, understanding and compassion.  The latter is but an overview of the fundamental points of yoga, although as one begins to practise, each practitioner in turn will discover many more elements, benefits and attributes of yoga that would reflect in ones daily life, which would succeed to uplift, motivate and bring further awareness to better oneself in most areas of ones life, to bring forth their highest potential.Yoga is essentially a spiritual practise but one that had been adopted across the globe into almost every culture and way of life, which over thousands of years had become imbedded in a multitude of cultures that today the natives of each culture are unaware that their way of life has roots in the philosophy of yoga.

The widespread of yogic lifestyle and philosophy is now causing a worldwide awakening and the acceptance of its philosophies alongside the worldwide embracing of yoga serves only to support that yoga is in the heart of every human being because it is a practise that resonate true in its preaching.

Yoga is not simply a blind faith that perhaps it is true or perhaps it is not, asking its practitioner to take a leap of faith and wait for the hereafter for results.  Yoga will produce results from the day you being to practise and if you continue to practise it will produce even better results and allow the practitioner to reach deeper and literally taste, smell, touch, hear and see the relative truth through experience and through daily life.

The best gift you can ever give yourself or your child is Yoga and if you do not, then explore the children who grew up as practitioners of yoga and what they had become and achieved as a result of their practise.

The benefits To Your Child:

The Physical Body – will be agile, healthy, flexible, all organs will function to a higher healthier capacity, organs will grow strong, resilient with more output, body will be relaxed, calm and stress free, no growing pains, less or no trips to the doctor for yoga aids in self healing, stronger and more flexible joints and muscles, strong healthy bones, no tension and a balanced body.

The Emotional Body – is active through breathing (breath body), learn how to breath properly, allowing all organs and every atom in the body to breath, stable, calm and balanced emotions and emotional reactions to any given situation, controlled emotional body, highly active intuition, high consciousness of self, others and environment, high empathy with others and environment (universe), increases awareness and compassion, awakening ones emotional body to teach self empowerment, self discipline and manipulation of inner power, a profound understanding in the emotional experiences of others and universe.  Most importantly a carefree, easy going and unaffected manner that is open and easy to connect to and befriend.

Mental Body (ego personality) – is for most people the most active of all layers in the human being and in Yoga this area will be the most beneficial, a substantial increase in creativity, intelligence, self awareness, focus, self discipline, determination/tenacity, problem solving, visual analyses (abstract, intuitive or conceptual), imagination to manifestation, intent, commitment, memory and storing of memory, the judgement, evaluation and reasoning (analyses) of any given social or environmental circumstance or situation, hyper alertness, decision making, comprehension of intensely complex social, scientific and environmental situations or circumstances, balance of self image and character internally to externally, an awakened sense of purpose and drive.  But most importantly due to the fact that the child will practise yoga from as earlier an age as possible, this increase does not stop if the practise of yoga does not stop, it grows with the growth of the child, further expanding brain activity with emotional activity and increased physical strength and stamina –will ensure that your child will surpass anything humanly imagined possible of these area to grow and expand into, sending your child to a new level of consciousness, awareness and being that would accredit them with the possible title of “child prodigy” in their own chosen area of expertise.

Please note that for this to occur as stated the child must practise yoga on daily basis and be engaged and involved in the practise with dedicated intention and not forced into practise.

Spiritual Body (higher self/soul) – for some parents this can be a sore subject, a taboo subject, something not believed in or something absolutely believed in.  Whatever the belief system that a parent wish to incorporate into the mental awareness of a child –I believe every human being must believe that there is such a thing as a creative force that evolved into its present state, whatever each human being or culture may wish to call it, some like to call it mother nature and others may call it God, both donate the presence of a force that created our present reality no matter what one may wish to call it.

In yogic philosophy every human being must be open to all possibilities as a witness to experience every possibility without restricting oneself on any level to better absorb and analyse new information appropriately in order to evolve.

The spiritual body is that, that looks beyond itself for the connection to everything and all, it gives the human being a sense of deep connection in self awareness, self control, self esteem, self confidence, self purpose and self worth.  It is knowingness, a deep and profound knowingness of its purpose and its role as the character that it wishes to be and evolve into our society at large.  It grounds our mental, emotional and physical bodies into the reality, it defines them, it has the absolute control of its own evolution and it is connected to the force that encompasses the entire cosmos, for the cosmos and it are the one and the same energy.

The higher self is all knowing and the connection to the higher self through yoga would allow the practitioner a balanced, healthy and fulfilling existence that surpasses the gratification of any material reality –for this deep and profound connection will allow the practitioner to follow through their destined path without ever feeling lost or confused about which direction their life might be heading and why.  This is the ultimate gift for any human being, if the parent gave their child the most important tool to self-discovery, development, growth and mental evolution that is constant and far reaching, what more could anybody ask for?  After all who wouldn’t want to know who they are intimately and without reservation, where they are going and how to get there without doubt or confusion –if we all had that in our youth, where would we be today?

I Cannot Lose Weight No Matter What I Do?

Phil_Weight Problem

Picture
The social norms of modern societies today appear to be becoming more and more beauty and health conscious, with weight being the focal point of both health and beauty, needless to say for both are linked.A healthy body is a beautiful body, not only in shape, form and appearance, but a healthy body radiates energy, confidence and youth for those are the elements that would render it attractive.All media outlets advertise countless diets, fitness programs and lifestyle ideas promising a beautiful healthy body targeting to entice and attract you as a new customer, and most with hard work will eventually help you reach your goal.  However, some of us might go through many diets, intense fitness programs and spend time, energy and money with little or no satisfactory results, as you begin to feel hopeless for no matter what you do, you simply cannot shed all the weight you desire.  As a result for most of us we begin to feel emotionally and mentally drained in the process as losing weight slowly takes over our entire life, meanwhile slowly depression starts to surface.The real issue is that when dealing with reforming the physical body, most diets will work for a while until the body becomes accustomed to the regime and it would thereafter no longer work.  A fitness program might consume your life in constant struggle to stay in shape and as a result would cause an imbalance in other parts of your daily life.   While lifestyles ideas will need a constant input and the right information in order to ensure that a balance is reached across the board to gain and keep a healthy lifestyle.

One of the main reasons why diets, fitness programs and flyby lifestyle ideas do not seem to work for some people is because there might be deeper issues at play that must also be addressed to reach a healthy beautiful body.

AwakeConBal Lifestyle philosophy is that the human being is not one single entity that has the absolute power to control and make choices/decisions based singularly from one body of awareness!  The human being is a multidimensional being that is made up of many entities that act like layers of consciousness and awareness, the physical body being the first, the second being the breath (emotion), the third being the mental (ego personality) and so on and so forth (please click here to read more on AwakeConBal Philosophy).

If a person is unable to reach the end result of a goal they had set for themselves, and they do not suffer any biochemical deficiency in their physical body that would hinder their progress, then the issue might arise from the mental body or the emotional body that is causing a blockage in the progress of the fitness program.  Please remember that a healthy body also means a healthy mind (healthy attitude and strong discipline) and healthy emotions, for all three must be worked on at the same time to reach a desired goal of a healthy beautiful body.

For those who are able to reach desired results from their diets, fitness programs or chosen lifestyle, it is because their mental and/or emotional bodies already work in unison with their physical body and perhaps for some unaware that the body does or can.  In such cases ones mental and/or emotional body can be hyper active and can motivate itself into specific action, while keeping it focused, determined and disciplined until the end and beyond.

If one is unable to motivate oneself into disciplined action through determination and focus, in AwakeConBal Lifestyle Philosophy it simply means that ones multidimensional layers is disconnected and unbalanced.  If one is serious about reaching a beautiful body, then one must be willing to work on connecting mental willingness (mind) through intention (emotion) to command the physical (body) to follow through.

Such a process will require an altogether different discipline and fitness program to make it succeed, however there is no point in starting such a program if one is unwilling to see it through.

At AwakeConBal Lifestyle we do not entice our customers to join our activities so we may work on them and keep them in our classes for as long as possible under the pretence of helping them lose weight.  We introduce our practitioners to the real issues of why a human being starts to accumulate weight and why some people are more apt then others to gain and keep it.

The tailor made fitness plans we offer are intensive, require extreme discipline and daily dedication, so if the client does not suffer from a biochemical dysfunction of the body (for example a thyroid gland problem), then our tailor made program will guarantee the weight lose within 6-8 weeks based on a vigorous military style daily routine overseen by our Lifestyle Coaches in an isolated luxury environment that helps our practitioners connect with themselves and nature.

To gain a beautiful body that is fit and healthy, and to maintain it effortlessly thereafter, not only the food consumption must be changed, but the daily routine, attitude and motivation must also reflect a change in lifestyle and awareness.  If the lifestyle and awareness does not change, then any weight loss or perk in health is temporary until the normality of daily life come back into play, then the weight piles on again.

What AwakeConBal Fitness Program aims to achieve is to introduce the change with awareness, apply it daily for 6-8 weeks so the physical, emotional and mental bodies become accustomed to the new routine in order for the practitioner to take it home with them.  The fitness program will not only discipline the physical body, but the emotions and the mind for the success of the transformation to resonate on every level and become deep rooted in your muscle memory.

A Treatment Guaranteed To Reduce Stress And Address Insomnia

Phil_Reduce Stress & treat Insomnia

Picture
Increasingly over the years I keep meeting more and more people who suffer from deep uncontrollable anxieties and insomnia, with myself being one of those people, I was able to deeply empathise.I suffered from insomnia for 7 whole years that when the joyous day arrived and I slept for 5 whole hours, I literally thought I died and gone to heaven.

It was when I finally decided to follow my ultimate dream and begin my human balance experiment that I came across the very reason why I suffered insomnia – in one word “STRESS”.

Now some of us, and myself included again, might reason but I live a healthy balanced life, I inject a bit of this and a bit of that, I go on a month long holiday and I still cannot sleep and experience terrifying anxieties, in fact when I am on that said month holiday I didn’t even sleep those one/two hours per night because I was too busy trying to live every minute of my holiday in its absolute fullest, before I get back to my normal hectic and depressing lifestyle back home.  Although my lifestyle could never be termed depressing, in fact it was anything but, except when you’re living it, it is not quite the same as when you are standing on the outside looking in.

No matter how amazing our life might be, if you are not sleeping the reason is stress and that stress is coming from the pressure of your lifestyle, in striving to gain it, maintain it, flaunting it, living it and forever chasing it.  A human being is far too busy thinking about bills, holidays, kids, relationships, shopping, needs, health, family, friends and chasing the dream, which is power, influence, money and social status.

So what is missing from that list?

The wellbeing of your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies, they are always left on the back burner, always tomorrow you will take care of it and give it some attention, never a priority or one of them too much of a priority that it becomes an unhealthy obsession. Yet even when they get a little attention, it is never in a healthy balanced proportion or even close to enough to make the necessary difference and allow for sufficient stress and tension release from the body, emotions, mind and spirit.  Therefore, the stress levels begin to increase, until all the worries and fears consume our every waking hour and stop us from sleeping to stress about them a little more, stress becomes part of our consciousness to the point that we do not realise that we are a walking stress ball, suddenly anxiety steps in to add a little more flavour to our already full plate of unhealthy living.

Some of us work so hard and our hectic lifestyle is so ingrained into our mental awareness that we cannot just let it all go, release, relax and live.  For such individuals certain key treatments are vital to be effective for the release of as much of the built up tension and stress as possible.  The treatment must be so profound that it would unblock and move along trapped tension in muscles and blocked energy from over work and stress with little or no sleep.  It must be effective enough to allow for deep relaxation and emotional relief to induce a few hours of decent sleep.

Pranassage is such a treatment; Pranassage is massage through yoga, not only does it allow for the introduction of deep yogic postures that realigns the body, grounds the body by releasing the tension and stress effectively, but it also imposes one and half hours of correct breathing for the entire body to be oxygenated during the treatment.  Pranassage is without a doubt the most effective form of stress and tension release that I had ever encountered with even more rewarding benefits with continuous application, a session of Pranassage a couple of hours before an early night sleep will make you feel like a new human being the next day guaranteed.

For a person who does not make time for a healthy balanced lifestyle, 2-3 sessions of Paranssage a week will literally work miracles for your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing, reducing stress, tension and insomnia significantly, which in turn will ensure that one is more productive, creative and alert.
