How Self Awareness Changed My Life #IYP ‘Longevity’
What is up beautiful people? Today is all about self awareness, yup self awareness, its something we all need to get hip to! You know who it is, you know how it is, you know what it is we do and what it is we are here for. It’s your boy, the one the only Mossamo aka Max from Mossamo.com and the positive vibes lifestyle movement. I hope you guys are doing beautiful; it is a beautiful Sunday morning where I’m from, where I’m at. A touch of chill in the air, a little bit of snow on the top of the mountains which is for September, you know middle of September, seems a hell of a lot earlier, than norm but I’m sure that’s just the way it always is. You know when you’re living in that type of environment so be it that being the mountains. Yesterday we spoke on how music saved my life. So again leaving home at an early age, being on my own at a young age, having those anger issues, having all the issues that would come with abandonment, anger, self confidence, embarrassment, and all that I mean the list goes on.
I turned to music, I found music, I’ve always been in love with music, even though what I was listening to at that time; the early to mid-2000 gangster rap was popping. That was fuelling my inner fire which I probably didn’t know but at the same time it was also fuelling creativity and the want to be better, do better; learning to write and it kept me from going too far down that negative rabbit hole. This also started the begining step like step 1 to becoming self aware and waking up to self awareness
Fast forward maybe 5 to 8 years where I found, by fluke (although look back at it I’d been asking the universe for it), I found my first Teacher who when we met we spoke and I actually had an actual pulling. I was like I know I need to talk to this guy right here. It was the first time I was intrigued to learn, to ask question and step outside this box that I had no clue I was even in…truly an amazing and weird feeling at the same time.
We spoke, and to even step up and start to chat to him was a masive step for me as I had trust issues, and my confidence when talking to older people was shit, because I was so used to them judging me for not living at home, working instead of going to school, and basically not living the perfect life…or at least that was what I thought. At first he just said a couple words here and there, not trying to sell me on anything, but the words were actually questions in a way that when I left would get me thinking long long after I had left. Then after a while of this he introduced me to the eastern lifestyle ways, and how he was trained in Japan in what’s called Amatsu. It took me months to wrap my head around it all from food to how you think, as I came from an immigrant familly all about work and money, paying zero attention to health and happiness. It was a massive, massive wake up call!
It’s a type of healing, really it’s a lifestyle, and it’s a body-mind, soul connection. And then the real journey began, I met him, so I first went in for a diagnosis with him, he was doing like pulse testing and meridian testing and all this stuff that was just crazy for me at the time, telling me how things ran in my family health history…all from my pulse, wtf?!!
He told me all this info, on what I was doing to my body and inside’s by living the type of life I was at that time and started teach me this other lifestyle from a young age, I was super young at that time so didn’t matter that I had not yet started this new way of living, I was coasting of being young as we all do up until a certain point, but if we never learn, then we all at some point have issuess!
He said we can all coast to a certain age, but he said your diet needs to change. I thought I knew a lot about diet, I knew sweet fuck all about diet.
The stuff that I thought, because everybody always says to you and I’m sure you guys hear this; if your health freaks like myself. You say, people will tell you, oh don’t worry about it we are eating healthy and then you go there and look at something smothered in a brown sugar sauce or smothered in some nasty processed cheese and they claim that this is healthy right. But until you know, you dont know…does that make sence?
So when I was doing those types of things I was thinking I was eating healthy. ` I got schooled and that was amazing, especially at such a young age and it’s been like I said a 10-year journey that he introduced me to and that actually made a mssive difference and change, so like I said yesterday music changed my life but what He introduced me to: the meditation, the diet, the mindest,meditation, the ancient knowledge which then not only changed my life, it transformed me as a human and contiunes to this day and no doubt until I die, as this type of learning never ever stops! So music saved my life, sorry, meditation then changed my life.
Truth is we should be speaking more about this self-awareness right.
My first time actually deciding to try to start and to implement meditation, I sat down and it was 2 minutes, I remember sitting down and like 3 seconds later looking at the clock and the time had not changed, but basically tried to sit still for the 2 minutes…which I thought was a fucking lifetime to… excuse my french!
Fast forward to about 8 to 10 years later where we’ve now sat for 2 hours, from 2 minutes to 2 hours I mean the change is not even speakable, who I was to who I am, what I understand, what I continue to learm, and how I grow spiritually, I mean looking back it is a transformation, it is amazing, and it takes time, effort and work, hard work, ohh and do not forget dedication!
It’s self-awareness I’m telling you guys, not just for the mind, that’s huge right but we’re going to go back to diet. Self-awareness of how let’s say when you eat X. Y. Z, how you feel. You need that self-awareness to understand, holy smoke when I drink this fresh juice that I just made that came from this tree. Let’s say you pull off an apple, you do that with some celery, and you drink that juice. Oh my God, this is how my body feels, You start understanding what your digestion is, you start standing what it is to have stuff go into your stomach and feel good, compared to be when you eat let’s just call it what it is, a big fat sloppy cheeseburger.
And you then process that in your stomach your gut and you can A, B it, you can diagnose yourself from experience, again and go wow when I drink that juice holy smokes I felt full of energy. I didn’t have any digestion issues to eating something heavy, saturated with fats and blah blah blah. You just do not feel the same, it is FACT!!
I won’t get into the scientific crap on that, but just A B yourself, Oh man I feel sluggish, and I feel whatever you’re going to feel right. Maybe you don’t feel anything but 90 percent of the population should. Because it’s a lot of work for your system to be digesting adn trying to clean up all the crap we put into ourselves, so self-awareness changed my life. The meditation, the understanding of foods and we’re going to continue this conversation because it is mandatory to be better people. I love you all, have a great day. Talk to you soon.
