The Value of Insight

The mental phenomenon of insight is an amazing ability, if you ask me. And the more it is developed, the more of a tool it can become. It has a certain characteristic of recognizing and allowing a thought or emotion to happen, then the process of investigation of it's action/reaction context, then the turning it into a conclusion on how to act inside a specifically small or larger timeframe, and the nuances that response may provoke. Applied to any given situation, it's certainly an asset.

The nurturing with self-compassion gives us the right emotional frame in which to develop a wider awareness into life, ourselves included.

The daily practice of meditation, daily practice of mindfulness and other things like Shadow Work, all services I’ll be providing, are a must for self-development and corner stones for enlightenment.

“No one becomes enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” Carl Jung

I do love both the word insight as the word awareness. In my language we don't have an immediate translation of these words. Insight we call insight, and awareness is translated to "consciousness", which is kind of poetic, thinking about it. I especially appreciate this explanation of insight: "penetrating mental vision or discernment; faculty of seeing into inner character or underlying truth". This is the way I see it, the ability to see behind the veil of illusion.

More often than not we’re stuck on a mindless journey through life, an auto-pilot mode. We do things unware of doing them, we react innadvertedly to circunstances, we speak without true awareness of what we’re saying, and so forth.

In the upcoming months, I’ll be facilitating a weekly meeting of like-minded individuals who wish to work together on becoming more mindful. I’ll provide exercises and challenges to get you started. I’m there to mediate the meeting on whatever reason necessary, and help you to learn how to be more mindful in your daily life.

Have I mentioned this is completely free of charge? That’s right, I believe everyone has the right to learn how to be present without needing to pay for milenia-old natural conscious knowledge.

Stay tuned for more information!

With love, Matilde.
