“I want to lose fat on my belly but not on my boobs”, “I want to get rid of my love handles”, “I want to build more muscle in my arms and back” – typical requests from PT clients. Mainstream science says that you cannot lose fat in the places you want. Aside from your nutrition, activity and gender (some would say race too but I include that in your genetic footprint), the body has a pattern, a map, determined by your genes, where you are more likely to deposit fat tissue and store water, and places where you are more predominant to ‘build’ muscle. Now, the purpose of this article is to go beyond this basic piece of 3D knowledge 🙂 We are constantly moving, changing, evolving, a fact determined by how we react to our surroundings and events through our emotions and feelings. It is possible to be born with a tendency to store fat on your thighs and override that pattern in your 50s through a change in your behaviours, thoughts, reactions and habits.

All food is drugs. Anything that you can possibly put into your body is a drug. When you eat, you aren’t really nourishing yourself in the way you think, you are actually feeding the bacteria in your gut. The more toxic your gut is, the more you ‘crave’ food, usually the most toxic foods, it’s not ‘you’ who is hungry, it’s your bacteria wanting to be fed. As you start eating healthier, or fasting, you accustom the bad bacteria to no food, and to eventually die, leaving you clean and without cravings or the unnecessary need to eat.
It’s very on trend to proclaim that we are one infinite consciousness inhabiting different bodies or that we all are the same consciousness expressed in different ways. Some people really understand the meaning of this, others just repeat it because it’s fashionably zen. I’ve been saying from the beginning that everything is related and connected, as we all are energy. While all this is true, it may be difficult to grasp to our naked eye (the senses, those tempting deceivers), but when this applies to something we can actually see, such as our body, we really come to understand the interconnectedness of all things, and we confirm once again our holographic nature. As above so below. The whole contains parts, but the part also contains the whole. The ocean is made of drops but there is an ocean inside of a single drop. Let’s talk about the Fascia.
It’s a curse and the biggest blessing. When you feel everything so deeply and you think that everyone else is the same but then you realise they’re not, there are times when you question yourself. Specially when those in the lower frequencies (most of people in the world, aka asleep ones) start projecting their insecurities and lack of self-authenticity at you and make you feel ‘different’. So you try to fit in pretending you don’t feel, which sucks/hurts even more. What’s really going on here is that most people NUMB their feelings, ignore them, or shut them down due to various reasons (it’s not a case that they don’t feel) and in return shame those who do express their feelings, because they aren’t strong enough to open themselves, they ridicule those who do. This is society for you. It’s been normalised that ‘to feel’ is a sign of weakness. Fuck that! What it means is that you’re vulnerable when you feel, therefore there is FEAR of feeling (and expressing it) because it can often be synonym of suffering. Well, let me tell you: If you don’t suffer you don’t thrive, grow, heal, love, live! Life comes with everything: pain and pleasure. Digest and assume that. Simply.
“It’s all a holographic projection of our minds” – At the time, 14 years ago, I did not fully comprehend it but I knew it was true, I had a massive ‘aha!’ moment.
We create myths and call them mysteries when we can’t find a logical, explainable (5 senses ‘proved’) reason of its existence or behaviour. But let me tell you: there are no mysteries, as long as you don’t fear knowing. We encase ourselves in myths when we fear truth. But everything, absolutely everything, has a mental – I won’t say scientific- explanation. And I know only a bit about that.
There is a reason why Brits retire in Spain or why the Scandinavian countries are half empty. The Sun. The Sun is the giver of life, and it has been there forever. Worshiped by every civilization as the God, it couldn’t be any less, as there is no existence in this plane without it.
