Life in “EL RANCHO” / Juanacatlan, Mexico

Wherever you are behind this screen TAKE IN A DEEP BREATH / SMILE / BREATH OUT! We are excited to open up the Mexico portal and share our perspective on life here in Juanacatlan, Mexico where the traditional “rancho” lifestyle is taken. We spent several days here and had the opportunity to study the culture, people and lifestyle to gain the insight of what life is like here. Allow us to dive deeper..

Officialy opening the portal.

The “Rancho” lifestyle is one of simplicity and limited awareness.

The people live in a corrupted city where there options are limited and they have settled for what they can. Unaware of the endless abundance and opportunities that are available they are exposed to a limited amount of information and usually undertake the shadow of their parents. They search for happiness in the life given to them, unaware of their own abilities and the power of the mind they suffer from mental health issues that most of us face. In light they choose to enjoy themselves as they can. They find security in their faith, family and day to day routine. A majority of them here don’t further their education passed high school since transportation and time can become an issue. It’s a different life here. Born into this experience they do with what they can. We tuned into their lifestyle and interviewing our uncle he shared the usual routine is; Eat, work, Eat, Chill, Eat, Sleep. A very simple and basic lifestyle. We asked him a few more questions to dive deeper.

“Do you love your job?”

“It’s the only job I know how to do.”

“Do you love your life?”

“It’s the life I grew up with, I don’t know anything else”

“Are you happy”

“I enjoy myself. It is calm here. Nothing much goes on. It is simple. It’s what I know”

Tuning into this conversation Rizen realized how awareness and perspective can shift and alter what the individual beliefs to be possible for themselves. As we asked these questions we noticed the pattern of limiting awareness. Many of us who DO NOT travel, ask questions or explore the possibilities put ourselves in a box where we are limited in perception and fail to see what else is possible in our life. Now even though these individuals will respond with “life is good.” and “I’m good with where I am at.” we share the difference between happiness and ignorance. We also share that why be “good” when you can be “great” and so much more? Again it is all about the type of lifestyle you choose for yourself and what you want to experience as you walk this Earth

Average body consumption in Mexico 

    ⁃    Average morning and late night meal is coffee with bread; they put sugar, caffeine, milk, bread into their body – creates bloating, stomach aches, farting, body aches, headaches, insomnia, fatigueless, irritation, and nausea.

    ⁃    We observed all our family experiencing each one of these symptoms if not all / when we spoke to it about it they said “you think about it too much the body heals itself”

    ⁃    The IGNORANCE lies in the lack of awareness and conditioning of old habits / the kids here begin to experience it with sugar, coffee, and poor food so they grow up with these symptoms and apply them as usual ways of living because they are unaware of what is possible for their body. 

    ⁃    They live life numbed out, unable to reach their full potential.
