The Magical Healing Power Of Music.

In a previous blog post, 'Letting Go And The Music Of Heartbreak' I wrote of an alternative and flexible way in which to listen to music in order to let go of past relationships. How we face situations in life determines the feelings that are produced by events, the memories created and how we feel when we remember.

Music is particularly important in everyone's story. In a way, it works as invisible ink that through life is used to write our story on the soul and psyche. What we write on it and how we write it is everyone's personal responsibility. Each individual is responsible for the way they feel regardless of what experiences they've been through or how we've been treated.

Music is used by many in order to create healing spaces. Some, like music therapists or healers might have training and a method to follow. Some others resort to experience and intuition to recreate the same results. Everyone holds an incredible power within to heal. This path is found through intuitive intelligence; an intelligence which transcends ego and intelligence itself. 

If we paid attention when listening to silence, everyone would hear the music within. Then the magic begins.

However advanced one is in their personal or spiritual development, sometimes it is necessary to ask for help. There are periods of stagnation in which nothing seems to work or one is not advancing at the same pace that they're used to. We don't always have to do it alone. An incredible synergy is created between people and souls when we work together and move in the same direction. 

One voice, one heart, one soul. 

A few months months ago I was sitting with someone who had repeatedly asked for my help, but whom refused to give anything in exchange, as his asking came from a place of entitlement. Of course, like everyone else I like to get paid for my work. I had been listening to him though. It was not so much as refusing to help, but to show that sometimes we have to make an effort and invest in our personal development if we want to obtain positive results. This is a brief account of what happened. No words can truly describe it. 

As I listened to him talking about heartbreak for the hundredth time, I asked him to pause. It was obvious that he had not listened to a word I said. Words don't really teach. Experience does. Hence, I needed to get his attention in a different way. As he allowed silence in, I began playing a famous, popular song, the perfect vehicle to work with feelings and emotions. The song is about remembering, longing and if listened to it repeatedly, to never let go. The vivid representation humanity has of heartbreak.

Next I played another popular song, expressing gratitude for having had the wonderful opportunity to love such a special someone in their lives.. No longing, no melancholy; only appreciation and love. 

The third song was written and sang by a talented friend of mine. A song about the pursuit of freedom, returning to the soul and revisiting the essence of home. As I talk to him, I had already changed my tone of voice. A subtle adjustment imperceptible at the time. Every word, movement and piece of music  that was played followed a deliberate intention: to heal. 

Thus far, he revisited the experience of what he knew in his life to that date. With Chopin's music the attention moved inwards, touching his emotions. Even though he was new to classical music, the feeling of the composition sounded familiar: longing, in pain, seeking inner peace through the love of creativity and inspiration. Rachmaninoff sent him deeper into his emotions. A feeling of isolation followed by a sensation of heaviness and lethargy. 

With the purity of Bach he stood before heaven's doors and shown the path to God. At first Brahms was too much, too rich to handle. He neither understood it, nor liked it. My response to him was: "this is God talking to you, but you're not listening". God as in Brahms' music. 

To such feeling of uneasiness I added Beethoven. A music that brought in him a different emotion, and the intention of courage. As the music changed, I described to him the energy of his feelings and emotions. Beethoven was a place he wanted to be in, but a feeling he couldn't recognise. By then he was completely out of his normal state of feeling, being so absorbed by the intensity of the healing process. 

It was the perfect time to return to Bach and show him the doors to heaven on earth again. As this time he allowed the unknown, flowing in the energy that had taken over the room, I presented him with Brahms again, although a different piece: "Lullaby." At recognising this piece of music he showed the wonder and relief of the child within. It was God talking to him. He was listening again. 

By the time I stopped playing music I asked him to tell me what he was talking about before the unexpected session started. Not only he couldn't remember, there were no thoughts in his mind. He reached a state of bliss. Heaven on earth. His beliefs and fears about hell disappeared that day. All need, want and desire vanished. The rest of the evening continued with the same feeling and thoughtless minds. He tried to bring thoughts to his head to no avail. With a new set of beliefs, his sense of entitlement collapsed and he was happy then to offer payment in exchange.

What happened during the session was a sudden shift in vibrations rising consciousness. In his case the change was significant, as this was a man who up until then had been living with the lowest vibrations of apathy, lethargy and depression.

Gestalt therapy allows to recreate such magical experiences, inducing states of mind, opening up to wonderful energies in which someone can explore multiple possibilities in personal transformation. We all  are naturally  magic. Each one of us has the ability to visit such enchanting places. Let's believe and allow it. If we cannot get there by ourselves, it is always alright to ask. 

Remember: One voice, one heart, one soul. Then magic is universal. 

If you decided to take the initiative and experiment with music, let me emphasise that all healing is flexible and that intuition will take you far. Choose your tunes and let the heart dance towards the healing music of your soul. 

How A Spiritual Reading Can Transform Your Life Immediately.

There are still numerous qualities to discover about the human being, abilities that lie dormant within and which, due to lack of knowledge or practice remain unexplored. One of them is the psychic abilities in each person. In a silent world humans would be able to communicate telepathically. When the mind is quiet anyone can hear the messages that consciousness stores in silence. The answer is to remain still. I believe that all great spiritual books speak of the same answer; the stillness within.

Being able to do a spiritual reading shouldn't be considered such a strange talent or experience, and yet it is. It is true that currently some people are more connected to others. The first group is the one that can make the experience real for others. Anyone could do it if they put themselves to it. 

Like in any business or group, there are might be charlatans that take advantage of the vulnerabilities of others, but exposing them is not the intention of this blog and will never be.

The important fact to consider is that a good reading could be starting point in someone's healing process. It can interrupt periods of depression, stress or anxiety and be the turning point towards a positive change.

Last September during a spiritual gathering I was presented with a pleasant surprise. For about two years I had been interested in meeting someone who could do a reading for me, but I didn't really know who to approach. Even though I knew people who could offer them, I was looking for something specific, so I didn't give it much thought or never sought one actively. The Universe provides when the time is right. When I arrived at the gathering and I was told that everyone would get one as part of the experience. I had to wait several days for it. 

I admit that I was both, excited and scared when the moment came. I knew she could see through me and communicate with my soul, which she called Spirit. I was excited because I knew I could get confirmation of something that I already knew somehow. Then, I was afraid that in a matter of minutes she would tell me that everything I have been working for all my life was about to collapse. 

What I can or am willing to reveal about this episode is the first thing she told me: "you're going to a place, and if you knew what it was, you'd like to talk about it." I didn't ask what this place was. Perhaps I should have. But I asked if this was a good place. She also told me about to ability to see into another dimension. In person this reading was incredibly powerful in terms of exposure, truth and the strong felt presence of souls. I must add that this was an experience in a group. 

I'm still looking for that place, not knowing what it is, and yet, somehow knowing. The idea of talking about it remained with me for months, but I couldn't think of anyone I could talk to about it. This is not the kind of conversation that one can have with just anyone. I mentioned this fact to a few people to no avail. If anyone wonders why I didn't ask what this place was, there's a simple reason. I do like uncertainty and surprises, especially when they're of unknown nature. There's an incredible charm to get to know through experience only. 

This reading is part of a long and powerful process of transformation. I know that answers don't come when I want them, but when they have to. Who to talk about it to was a different matter. A few weeks ago I got in touch with a lovely friend, Mayzara Chavarria who also does wonderful readings, and whom I'm very happy to recommend to anyone. Months earlier she got in touch with me out of the blue. She had a message from Spirit for me, asking me to slow down and stop doing doing doing. I should have listened then, but 'doing' has always been my thing. The interesting part is that before that moment we never had any contact. What she told me was too accurate. Things that most people don't know about me. Finally I asked what that place was, but for reasons that I must trust she didn't give me the answer. 

Spiritual readings are useful for several reasons. One simply has to find the right person. I have the ability to communicate with the soul within seconds, see and hear the silent words of someone's true essence. From the feedback I've received from hundreds of people I know that an immediate healing and releasing process takes place from the moment it is received. 

These spiritual readings allow you reconnect with the soul, not only through words, but by feelings and incredible sense of relief, recognition and the deep, peaceful sensation that you have finally been seen and heard. This feelings has a lasting effect, and it's something most people don't remember experiencing for a long time, if at all. 

As someone reconnects with the soul and begins to integrate parts of themselves that have been hidden or not felt, through such empowering feelings and emotion it is much easier to capture their inner desires, so as to express them. It's law of attraction. Raise your vibrations instantly. Regardless of how you might be feeling today, being recognised at such a deep level instils a sense of inner peace and instant transformation. 

Empowering has to be understood from a place of calmness, serenity and inner wisdom. It's an organic experience that allows to release the old and embrace the new. It also brings clarity, a sense of knowing and renewed intentions. It is in fact, a life changing experience.

It is a deliberate action with the intention to tap into someone's soul and take over for a few days. From this stage of feeling one's true nature it is much easier for anyone to manifest the life they want. Being recognised is a rare event for someone in such a fast paced society. It is a moment that invites peace and silence, a return to their dreams. It's never too late to return to the soul.

The first reading always serves this purpose, to recognise the soul. For some people it can take time to integrate all the elements, but once the soul is awaken, numerous possibilities arise leading to a new life. 

Being seen beyond the mask -a mask sometimes we don't even recognise- we all carry in one way or another is a magic moment, a time for relief, healing and self-love, knowing that one is not alone.

A well done reading will provide a powerful human and soul connection, that proves the fact that we're all one, that we can see each other and there's no reason to hide. The soul is always protected. 

The same qualities can be used for mediumship and to find the source of an illness or trauma. People have to begin to know, feel and believe in their incredible gifts and possibilities. 

Sometimes during the readings hidden experiences of the past are revealed. Usually these are secrets a child has been holding for years, such as child abuse that can vary in nature. However, this is not an specific account of events that might have taken place. Holding certain secrets due to feelings of shame or guilt are normal and understandable. It's not easy to face certain truths. Touching this part during someone's reading has an incredibly healing effect, as energies are being released. It's not about discussing it or initiating therapy, but sharing the secret with someone else without having to discuss any details. You might have heard the saying, "the truth shall set you free."

These are some of the reasons one could use spiritual readings for. The natural psychic abilities mentioned at the beginning of this blog post are also used to tap into the Akashic records, see past lives or even to see the future. After all, everything is here. Nothing is lost. 

Why would anyone don't want to be the best version of themselves?


Below there's a copy of the last reading I did for someone yesterday. More samples can be seen at Manel Blanco's readings:

There’s a child that’s whole … she only speaks of light and love … the most beautiful expression of God … she holds the key to all dimensions … keeper of Universal Knowledge … a gift that in time she forgot by listening to the noise of the world … your soul is the quintessence of beauty, a soul filled with endless light and love … a Muse unseen, an Artist unheard, constantly misunderstood and yet, everyone wants to hear the sounds of your song … you are enchanting and magnetic, the entire world wants a piece of your light … the most generous giver … there’s magic in you, soothing and calm, abundant enough to heal the world … you are eternal, universal …. You belong to everyone and no one …. You are the Seer, for you can see into each soul … patiently observing and loving legions of lost, confused souls … you’ve chosen a path of self-sacrifice and duty, but you must set boundaries strong, prioritise who’s first deserving of love … You are the Goddess of Light and Love … so soft and delicate you hold the ability to ease the pain of every soul, a powerful healer, with your touch or your voice … a loyal friend, a dreamer with a loving vision of the world that’s yet to come …. There’s a higher consciousness awaiting in your journey, up to the mountain within … a soul so familiar, so near to everybody’s heart … there’s a child so innocent and pure ready to be seen, the most beautiful expression of the soul … in you lies the poetry of the Universe, the art of the soul …. There’s a gypsy in you, a curious wanderer, with a restless urge to explore, and you’re touched by the most delicate dance … all in you is beauty, it’s the sound and the manifestation of your soul … aloof, somehow detached you find it difficult to adapt to the manners of this world, for it has buried deep its poetic ways … there’s a beautiful song in your heart that must be heard … and you are the kindest warrior, a poet of today and tomorrow … you are Muse to the one true Artist, to the One poet, to the dreamers of love … and such a romantic in your quest for love … you carry within the laughter of children … everything in you is perfection … it’s time to stand your ground and be the light that world needs to see, to be the heart and soul that we all want to feel … eternity lives in your eyes, and to achieve your goal, there’s only need to be, to remain still, for the Christ Consciousness is up to the mountain, but the path to follow is the journey within … do not chase, let the world come closer to see … you are the Light, the heartbeat of the collective soul … whatever you ask will be yours

Understanding Heartbreak And How To Turn It Into A Positive Experience.

Perhaps the most important fact about heartbreak, is that unknowingly everyone holds such experience within, but we continue living with it unaware of its existence or or how it influences our lives. Generally heartbreak is understood as the hurt after separating from a romantic partner. This experience is only a reproduction of the original one, and for the purpose of creating awareness, I've written a book, which identifies the moment in which it took hold of our hearts, how to understand it, how to go through the experience so as to turn it into an exercise of self-healing, letting go and being in love. 

Sometimes the worst experiences we have to go through come also with invaluable lessons that in time turn to be the best that could have happen to us. It is also a guide on how to improve relationships, by understanding the effect of feelings and emotions, and also how to explore the self, to realise, that our flaws are learned patterns that we adapted from others during a period in life in which we didn't have, neither the experience, nor the awareness to question what were being taught. Often what people know is not knowledge at all.

This book is a journey through the all the phases of heartbreak, exploring its unknown or unperceived origins, and how it affects a person throughout life, influencing thinking, behaviour, personal choices, relationships and in particular the hurt after separation. It offers a simple, practical healing method with practices easily adaptable to everyone's experience, taking the reader to the liberating moment of letting go. It is also an examination of the stage of being in love, and how by listening to the call of the soul, anyone could live in a permanent state of bliss. 

Almost imperceptible, heartbreak already lies in everyone's heart waiting to be revisited and reproduced time and again with the purpose to open the heart to its full potential and to universal love. Understanding its origins and its reality is essential in the healing process. Without this knowledge, heartbreak may cause mayhem in someone's temporary experiences, but also through the entire length of their lives.

The flexibility of the method and examination of heartbreak in this text makes it a suitable reading for anyone regardless of their current situation or marital status. Whether someone is at the stage of separation and heartbreak, single or in a relationship, this journey encourages personal leadership, so as to make of self-healing and art of personal expression and creativity. By going through the experience, making sense of feelings and emotions, the process turns into an adventure of self-discovery in which anyone can embody the art of being in love.

However hurtful and complicated it might seem, the answers to understanding heartbreak are simple. Each new self-realisation allows you to move on a new, higher state of consciousness, and to a new feeling, as the heart opens to love again. Heartbreak is the beginning of an inner revolution that can only be healed through self-exploration. 

One never knows how deep they are until the take the plunge. This is an excellent opportunity to heal your heart and your life, to recognise the endless possibilities of the self, as well as enabling you to find out your true and incredible potential, so as to realise that you already are a being of love and in love.

My new book is now available on Kindle.
