Dreaming the perfect beach – Part 2 – Florianópolis

After four days in Buenos Aires, I left with a good feeling and at the same time, a little sick of the air conditioning. Had a terrible headacke but i was really enthusiastic about going to Brasil.

After a 2 hours flight i reached my destination. A friend went to pick me up and we went straight to her house, it was around 2 am, get asleep and woke up at 9. My friend wasn’t at home, but her grandmother was, so with my «portuñol» we started talking about different things, she offered me coffee, which i gladly accepted and something for breakfast. When my friend arrived, we had lunch and she showed me the rest of the house. In the middle of the lunch, she asked me «What do you want to do?», i didn’t know what to say, so i looked a little disoriented, and her grandmother, with her inmense wisdom said: «just show him the beach!». My eyes sparkled with joy and answered with a big YES.

Its impresive how that powerfull question, can really let you without clue about anything. I mean we can say things like, i want to eat, sleep, work, rest. But those are just part of our daily life.

«What do you want to do?» There is no correct answer for that, there is just doing.

The good thing was that my friend lived very close to the beach, just 5 minutes by car and 15 walking. So it wasn’t a long wait. How can i put it? The first thing i saw, was this big and yellow sand beach, the sea was light blue and in front of us, a very mysterious island named «Campeche Island». The weather was nice, i took off my shirt and went directly to swim. I was again a 6 year old boy, laughing and having one of my most wonderful experiences of my life. That feeling that i was there, in a paradise, that all my decisions would bring me there, and that suddenly the vastness of the world and the atlantic ocean was open to me. I couldn’t stop laughing and feel thankfull for that precious moment.

That day I had this feeling that the whole world was there for me, just like a big playground, waiting to be discovered. I just couldn’t realize how lucky i was, and of course i would never imagen all the experiences i had the next 6 month in Florianópolis.

The people there call that island, «Ilha da magia», which means, «The Island of Magic». They have lots of stories about how different people realized their dreams and others lost their lives. Who ever you were, if you were there, the island was inviting you to discover her and connect to her energy. Everything you could have in your heart could be posible, but of course, not for free. Because every magic needs something in exchange to work. It can be your money, it can be work, or maybe love. What ever you’d like to receive, you should be able to give back or else be taken by the same force that guides you.

That magical place gave me precious friends, precious experiences and so much love in many forms and ways, that forever, one part of my heart will be connected to Florianópolis.

One of this experiences was a great bath with a huge rainbow in the sky all above the ocean!

Dreaming the perfect beach – Part 1 – Buenos Aires

It was January of 2013

I was working for my grade in university, after 10 years of studying and never been able to gave it a finishing point. I was really tired, was working in an Advertising Agency and at the same time, working as an Event Manager, for self-development courses. Had a girlfriend and trained 3 times a week. I barely sleeped those days, and what i really wanted was to close everything and go somewhere far away, have time for myself, and start working on what i thought it would be my next 10 years of life.

As a Life Coach i knew the importance of having a «life project», and i definetly wanted to do a serious change on my lifestyle. Wanted to stop working in multimedia, computers had my mind sick and my soul dead. But more importantly, i wanted to really start living my life to the fullest, feel the happiness of being alive, working on what i felt real passion.

So i ended my university grade on a thursday the 31st of january. The same day, i got fired because of personel reduction (i was so relieved, i couldn’t imagen my self working one more day in that place), went to my house did some calls, some days later i got a credit offer, and without thinking it too much, took the money they were offering me, paid some bills, quit from the Event Manager job, bought a one-way ticket to Buenos Aires Argentina, and another one to Florianopolis, Brasil. And there my adventure begun.

Why Brasil? Why Florianopolis?

Well, i did a list of all the places i wanted to go. My brother was living those days in New Zealand, so the idea of going and paying him a visit, was interesting, BUT, of all the places, Florianopolis was the one i could get and stay with the budget i had at the moment, besides i had some friends over there, and i had listened some very good recomendations about the island. All i ever wanted was to live by the sea, in a peaceful beach, learn to surf, and maybe fall in love with life and a beautiful woman too.

Why Buenos Aires first?

Because its a «must» place to visit at least once in life. It has so much life, its a huge city in a huge country, full of great food, interesting places to check, some amazing artists and people to know, etc…

I spent 4 days in Buenos Aires, it was my first time there, and wanted to know everything, so i just walked all over. Saw everything i could and of course, ate everything i got to find over there. My mother had a friend, who offered me to stay in her apartment those days, so i didn’t have to pay for that, just my personal tourism.

There i had an experience that really proved my nerves on this trip. I was just getting off the plane, people suggested me, to go without cash, and use the chilean debit cards, because they worked there. So i needed to take a van to the city, asked how much it was, and went to the bank machines, it was eleven in the night, almost midnight, and my debit card would not work in that machines, went to all the posible ones, and neither of them worked! I was so frustrated, didn’t know what to do, couldn’t call anyone. I had the money, i just couldn’t take it from the bank machine.

After 1 hour of trying the imposible become posible, i noticed another person in the same situation as me, he was a fellow chilean. Talked to him and  asked him, if he had some cash, he answered he only had 15 dollars in his wallet, and that he could’nt give me more. I asked him those 15, and promised him i would give them back, so he gave me his bank account number and went with my 15 dollars to buy the ticket for the van, that was going to the city. For those who don’t know, Ezeiza Airport is far away from the city, and you need a transportation in order to get there.

Went to the selling point, and for my surprise i needed 17 dollars, i had a lucky dollar in my wallet, but still not enough, i really needed 1 more f*** dollar and those guys would not accept less. Even if i begged, which i did.

For those who know about Argentina’s situation about the dollar, they got a black market for it. The official change wouldn’t be enough to buy the ticket, so i decided to buy a black market dollar, but, to whom?

I just stayed still and started to look for someone, with suspicious face, like a «black market face». A normal person, but that kind of look, you could get something illegal from him or her. An suddenly, i spotted a guy with those characteristics. Went straight to him, told him my story, and asked if he knew where to make the change. He looked at me, and said: «Yeah, sure, just go to the third store over there, speak with the fat guy, and tell him, Lorenzo (fictional name) is sending you». Just did what he told me, went to the fat guy in the third store, told him my story and of course, that «Lorenzo» was sending me, so he asked, «how much do you want?», I felt so relieved, bought more than enough Argentinian pesos, took the last Van to the city and when i reached the apartment, they received me with a good and cold beer.

I was so Happy, in the end, everything went good, it was a great experience. Anyway, i think i was lucky in many ways. I really suggest to avoid doing black market exchanges, unless you feel you can do it. You can always get in more troubles, so you need to be smart and smooth! And next time i travel to Argentina, i will sure have cash with me.

After that, as i already said, i walked all over, went to some museums, libraries, the zoo, some parks, great pizza places and ate the famous «bife chorizo».

For my next post, Florianópolis, the magic island!

Little Earth

Perspective

From our inner perspective, the world where we live is huge. Everything in human proportions seems to be inmense, and at the same time, it has so many details we can’t miss. If you go to a big city, you’ll find people and concrete, for certain. But every person you see and meet, will have their own daily dreams, challenges, dramas. In fact one single person is a whole universe of life.

Then you go to the beach or the mountains, and you could spend some days or weeks trying to «know» and «recognize» this place, and for certain say, «i’ve been there». But then again, you travel some miles and you’ll find another spot with new stuff to be discovered. And again new people to know, and new experiences to have.

But when we start joining the dots, the experiences, the places. We certainly will find an ultimate truth, no place is so different as another. We will find good and bad people everywhere, beautiful and ugly places, and of course great experiences and not so great ones too.

And in that dimension, we find ourselves in a vast world, full of different people, yet, all humans. With mountains, jungles, oceans and yet, still no place is like other, and every place makes us remember of another we already know.

We may use our whole life to discover our planet, and there will be so many places and people to find.

So this post is dedicated to this little planet, called earth and to humanity. If you have the chance or the gutts to go for a trip, do it, you will never regret it. Because traveling makes us grow, makes us better people, specially when we are able to reach other peoples hearts.

The challenge

Be an adventurer, discover your world, inner and outter. Live life in the present moment, and never let your self down, just remember there are billions of human beings with problems such as yours or greater, and if we can be of any help to others, sometimes just a conversation will fit enough. Do it from your heart, and discover what this little planet have for you.

¿Porqué CrossFit?

En la vida hay cambios que nos hacen crecer y madurar. Hay situaciones que nos hacen darnos cuenta del valor de la vida misma. Permítanme contarles porqué practico Crossfit, qué fue lo que me llevó a decidir, «esto es para mí» y persistir en este deporte de fitness.

Metas

Fue la primera vez en mi vida que pude notar claramente como mis objetivos eran alcanzados en la medida en que practicaba. Tanto metas de corto plazo como otras de mediano y largo. Simplemente el entrenamiento funciona. Sin importar el pasado deportivo y de salud del individuo, vi en mí y en muchas personas que con la guía correcta de parte de los coaches y del trabajo duro durante el entrenamiento. Los resultados, normalmente físicos son alcanzados. Da lo mismo si quieres adelgazar o ganar peso, si quieres estar en buena forma, recuperarse de una lesión antigua o prepararte para alguna competencia deportiva específica. He visto atletas de variadas edades y cada uno con sus propios objetivos cambiar y mejorar en término de resultados en su condición física o nivel de fitness. Para mi fue toda una sorpresa ver mis propios cambios físicos en tan corto tiempo y al mismo tiempo darme cuenta de las cosas que era capaz de hacer cuando comencé y de las que soy capaz de hacer hoy.

Tener una buena condición física y conciencia corporal es una bendición para todo ser vivo. Pues nos mantiene sanos, estables, energéticos y motivados.

Estilo de Vida

Una cosa es estar vivo y otra es tener el estilo de vida que realmente queremos. Cuando hablo de esto, hablo de tener claras ciertas prioridades, o al menos las más importantes. Vale la pena preguntarse de vez en cuando, ¿Qué estoy haciendo con mi vida?, ¿Qué quiero hacer desde ahora en adelante? ¿Cómo quiero que sea y que quiero lograr?, ¿Cuándo voy a comenzar y cuándo quiero ver esto concretado?

Llevaba 5 meses ejercitándome de manera autodidacta en mi casa hasta que me recomendaron el crossfit. Fui a probarlo y desde el primer momento supe que sería lo mío. No se bien porque sentí eso en ese momento, pero simplemente lo sabia y punto. No había mucho más que cuestionarse al respecto. Tras varios meses de entrenamiento hasta hoy, fui modificando ciertos hábitos que si bien no me incomodaban del todo, no me permitían estar al 100%, como por ejemplo aprender la diferencia entre comer y alimentarse. Dormir productivamente, respetar los horarios de verdadero descanso y no confundirlos con excesivas horas detrás del computador o alguna pantalla. Aprovechar más aún todo tipo de experiencia al aire libre e incluso atreverme a aprender nuevos deportes como el surf.

Cuando comenzamos a empoderar un área de nuestra vida, esta al tiempo contagia al resto de nuestras áreas. Me di cuenta que entrenando 1 hora al día me mantiene más productivo en términos laborales, más motivado en términos psico-emocionales y más seguro en relación a mis objetivos y mis capacidades.

Propósito

Alguien hace poco me preguntó: ¿Si bien con las metas a corto y mediano plazo puedo mantenerme motivado día a día, cómo hago para mantener la motivación para una meta u objetivo que es para el largo plazo?. A lo cual respondí: «Teniendo un propósito»

Tener un propósito de vida es como armar un puzzle. Primero debemos saber como debería verse y luego comenzar a agrupar las piezas según colores y similitud para luego, parte por parte, paso a paso ir armándolo. A veces hay piezas que parecieran no encajar en ninguna parte, y estas solamente se podrán utilizar cuando tengamos otras partes del puzzle armado. ¿Pero cómo saber si este es el puzzle que realmente quiero armar, gastar tiempo, recursos, sacrificar horas con mis amistades y familia o incluso no recibir ningún tipo de remuneración?

Porque un verdadero propósito está conectado con nuestras celulas, con nuestras emociones y con nuestra mente, inseparable e indivisible. Cuando no conocemos el verdadero propósito nos sentimos perdidos o extraviados. Pero las piezas correctas comienzan a aparecer cuando comenzamos nosotros a comprometernos con encontrar ese propósito verdadero. Podemos no saber nada de lo que queremos, pero alguna idea tendremos de lo que ya NO queremos. Y comenzamos de esa manera a hacer los cambios en nuestra vida para eliminar o cambiar hábitos, relaciones o trabajos. Una vez hemos clarificado el camino y eliminado el sobre peso, nuestro andar se hace más liviano por que al menos sabemos por donde caminar y podemos adquirir nuevas herramientas y experiencias que nos enriquecerán y empoderarán en nuestro camino.

En ese sentido el Crossfit no es tan distinto a todo lo demás. Cuando quieres aprender un movimiento nuevo, suponiendo que fuera un levantamiento olímpico como el snatch. Primero debemos ver en que posición estamos frente a la realidad de nuestra técnica y como queremos llegar a hacerlo. Luego dejarnos ayudar por alguien con más y mejor experiencia que uno para detectar los problemas y finalmente seguir sus sugerencias y entrenar tan duro como estemos dispuestos para conseguirlo.

¿Cómo se relaciona esto con mi propósito?, Simplemente así; Como Life Coach, en numerosas ocasiones mis coachees acudían a mí para conseguir mayor confianza, adquirir hábitos emocionales nuevos, como dejar de sentirse solo o dejar de sentir celos. Como su Coach y llegando a la conclusión de que el ejercicio físico es excelente tanto para la salud física como mental y emocional, les sugería comenzar a practicar algún deporte o simplemente tener alguna actividad física 1 o 2 veces por semana. Y esto me llevo a mí a hacerme la siguiente pregunta: ¿Estoy siendo 100% congruente conmigo mismo, mi trabajo y mis coachees?, Entonces decidí que para ser un buen Coach, debía ser capaz de dar el ejemplo, al menos en aquellas cosas que yo considero importantes. Pues resultaba muy fácil simplemente sentarse detrás de un escritorio y decirle a alguien, debes correr 3 veces por semana y esperar que lo hiciera. Pero cuando empecé a experimentarlo yo mismo, algo cambió y para bien. Ya que poco a poco se hacía menos necesario decirle a la gente lo bueno que es hacer deporte, ya que eso comenzó a mostrarse por sí mismo a través de mi propia práctica.

Finalmente, debo decir que cuando nos vamos alineando poco a poco, conscientemente con nuestro propósito, cada vez es menos necesario esforzarse por encontrar las piezas y se vuelve más un tema de saber aceptar, fluir y persistir.

Integralidad

Este es un valor muy importante para mí. Ya que siempre he sido un inconformista y con ganas de hacerlo todo. Por eso, con el tiempo he aprendido a integrar cada una de estas partes, que se veían a veces tan separadas o inconexas unas de otras y a darles un sentido a través de mi propia vida.

Cuando era muy pequeño mi madre me leía la Ilíada y la Odisea en vez de los clásicos cuentos para niños. Eso generó un apetito por saber más sobre culturas y mitología lo que me llevó a aprender más sobre Pitágoras y su escuela. Y si hay algo en lo que congeniamos es que debemos aprender a conocernos a nosotros mismos y esto se puede lograr por medio del ejercicio físico, el razonamiento y la sabiduría. Para lograr esto me propuse practicar y desarrollarme por medio de tres disciplinas: Crossfit, Coaching y Meditación. 3 herramientas que abren puertas internas para quién las practique y generan consciencia y felicidad.

¿De que nos sirve ser muy bueno en una sola cosa si en todo lo demás realmente apestamos? Respeto la decisión personal de alguien en volverse especialista en un área, pero la vida es y será siempre mucho más que lo que podemos experimentar y conocer, por lo tanto ponerse límites me parece absurdo. Aunque no podamos hacerlo todo, tratar de explotar nuestro máximo potencial en todo lo que podamos, me parece una visión de vida más sensata. ¿De qué depende?, De nuestros valores, de reconocer lo que nos parece verdaderamente importante para nosotros mismos y para todo el resto y luego atrevernos a hacerlo.

Una experiencia mística…

Era el 2012 no llevaba más de 2 meses entrenando y en un WOD que estaba siendo muy duro para mí tuve una experiencia sorprendente. Quedaba cerca de 1 minuto para terminar y me faltaban unas 5 flexiones de brazo para terminar. Pero mis brazos estaban agotados al nivel en el que simplemente no podía levantarme ni siquiera una vez más. Simplemente se había vencido toda mi fuerza.

Estaba tirado en el piso y un coach fue donde mí y me pregunto, cuántas repeticiones me faltaban, le dije, 5. El me dice, vamos te queda 1 minuto tu puedes hacerlo. Escuchaba su voz, pero mi cuerpo no respondía, debido a la energía y motivación del coach, decidí intentarlo nuevamente, simplemente cerré los ojos e hice un «push up» con toda la fuerza que me quedaba. En ese instante sentí que el tiempo se detuvo, escuchaba la voz del coach a la distancia, mi mente ya no estaba en el cuerpo ni el cansancio, no había un antes o un después, era un AHORA. Reuní fuerzas de mi propio pensamiento y mente y con claridad me dije, levántate una vez más y el cuerpo lo hizo, lo volví a hacer, no estaba preocupado por el tiempo ni por cuantos más debía hacer, sólo enfocado en ese instante y en ese movimiento, volví a repetir la misma instrucción y el cuerpo volvió a levantarse. Seguí haciéndolo sucesivamente hasta que el coach me dice, BIEN LO LOGRASTE y 10 segundos después sonaba el reloj que marcaba el final del entrenamiento.

Le agradecí profundamente por el apoyo y la motivación y sentí una gran felicidad al darme cuenta que había roto o traspasado un umbral que estaba dentro de mí. Un límite de mi mente, un límite del espíritu.

Un ejercicio tan simple había sido vehículo para tener una gran experiencia de despertar que me inspiraría a profundizar en este camino de vida.

A veces las cosas más sorprendentes pueden estar donde menos nos las esperamos, y mientras nos mantengamos en aquello que nos hace felices, nos llena de propósito y sirve al resto, la vida misma se encargará de que no volvamos a perdernos. Todo es posible para el que quiere realmente.
