Listening to your Inner Voice

Listening to your Inner Voice published on No Comments on Listening to your Inner Voice

The other day I attended an unusually hot Bikram yoga class. Somewhere in the middle I needed to lie down, as my heart felt like it would burst. While lying there, staring up at the ceiling, I suddenly had a voice inside me speaking words told to me long ago by my High School art teacher:

“An artist always knows when a painting is complete”

 

After hearing this, I felt something, like a deep knowing, then it shifted to a physical sensation that washed inside me and I realized what this meant. These words don’t necessarily apply to just creating art, but to life. It’s important to recognize when something is over it’s just over. If you keep putting time and energy into it, it’s wasted effort or you may ruin it, just like an overworked painting.

This is a powerful intuition indicating completion.

This is also a lesson on intuition, how it speaks to you, and interpreting it.

So how does your intuition speak to you?

Sometimes, it can be a small voice inside you; it can be flashes of visual images, a feeling in your stomach or even knowingness in your heart. The one consistency is a lack of visceral emotions when the intuition hits. It’s just a message delivered… then after the message is delivered, the emotional response happens.

 

It works like this because the way you process information:
1) Message
2) Mind receives message and thinks about it
3) Emotions follow thoughts

Sometimes you receive the message and process it so fast, you go right to the emotions. (i.e.: As soon as I walked in, I instantly felt sick and tired.)


The easiest way to tell the difference if a message is a thought, or an intuition is your emotional response.

Thought – if you had very intense emotions at the same time as the message
Thought – very negative feelings and obsessing over message
Intuition – when the message came you didn’t have any emotions
(Maybe exception of compassion)
Intuition – after receiving the message, even if bad news, you felt a sense of relief or as thought you already knew the answer already.


Where does this message, this information come from?

 

Sometimes that inner voice is you, these are your thoughts which are influenced by your past experiences. Other times it is your Higher Self, also known as intuition, which is actually your Soul; your Soul is directly plugged into God the Divine and touches the entire Universe.

This is how every question you have is always answered. And it is ALWAYS answered and usually as soon as you ask! But, why you don’t think you have an answer is because the answer you received isn’t want you want to hear, so you dismiss it and claim you don’t know what to do.

Perhaps the biggest step in working with intuition is trusting it. When you know that you’ve receive the truth and it feels like the correct course of action in every aspect, it’s important to trust it and follow through.

And if it means something is over, which is often difficult to accept, take comfort knowing that now there is room for something new to begin…

Can Electromagnetic Fields Affect Your Intuition?

Can Electromagnetic Fields Affect Your Intuition? published on No Comments on Can Electromagnetic Fields Affect Your Intuition?

We live in a sea of energy

Wherever there is an electric current flowing, there will be a magnetic field as a result. The higher the electrical current, the higher the magnetic field will be. Anything that has an electric current has this electromagnetic field.

Natural sources of electromagnetic fields

Electromagnetic fields are present and a natural occurrence in our environment, most recognized in the forms of thunderstorms and the earth’s magnetic field. Although these energy fields are invisible, this may explain why you may feel excited or energized during a thunderstorm, or feel different sensations during high sunspot activity (releases ions into the earths’ atmosphere creating aurora borealis).

Human-made sources of electromagnetic fields

The electromagnetic fields truly of the most concern are those from manmade sources. I’m sure you’ve heard that electromagnetic fields (EMF) aren’t good for your health and well-being, (remember mom telling you not to sit so close to the TV?) but how does this work?

Any electronic device has an electromagnetic field. The average household electrical device, from microwaves, computers, cell phones, TV, etc. average 100khz-300khz.

 

spectrum-emfSchuman Field (Earth energy field) ranges – 1Hz to 30Hz
Often the Earth frequency (Schuman field) is stated as 7.82Hz. This is calculated based on the earths circumference, but due to variables such as ions from sunspots and other interstellar interference, the earths magnetic field fluctuates.

Human brain in Alpha wave state:
relaxed, eyes closed but alert – 8Hz to 13Hz

Human brain in Beta wave state:
awake, mental concentration – 14Hz to 30Hz
Nerve pulses are electrical energy. The chemical processes in nerve cells throughout the body, brain and heart cause the human energy field. 1khz=1000hz

You can see that our own energy field is close to that of the earth.
Man-made electronic devices have a far higher EMF, which in turn do have an effect on us.

Fields of different frequencies interact with the body in different ways. This is of concern because our exposure is greatly increasing due to greater demand of electricity and electric devices.

 


Some symptoms of long-term EMF exposure include:

  • Insomnia
  • Dizziness
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Mild nausea
  • Paranoia
  • Headaches
  • Sweating
  • Shakiness
  • Joint pain
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Weakness,
  • Chronic illness
  • Memory issuesThe effects of EMFs vary as much as individuals vary.

Electromagnetic Fields, your Intuition and Pineal Gland
Recent studies have shown that EMFs affect your pineal gland, which is part of your endocrine system and located in the brain.

What does that mean?

Your pineal gland is the chemical/biological catalyst and connection between you, the universe and Divine. It is your pineal glad that supports your intuition and psy abilities. EMFs are perceived as light by the pineal gland, thus interrupting melatonin and serotonin levels, causing insomnia & depression, and they disrupt the neuro-modulators and subtle magnetic fields perceived by the pineal gland that support your intuition.

  • “Malka N. Halgamuge of the University of Melbourne in Australia further examined the effect of man-made EMF on the pineal gland. Halgamuge states in his research that the pineal gland likely recognizes EMF as light, which consequently would result in reduced melatonin production. “…the results show the significance of disruption of melatonin due to exposure to weak EMFs, which may possibly lead to long-term health effects in humans.” – Malka N. Halgamuge (Oxford Journals)”

Electromagnetic fields can effect your intuition and psy abilities in a negative way!



Tips to protect yourself from EMFs and even boost intuition:

 

  • Ground yourself. Go out into nature, walk in the woods, away from buildings and high power lines…and leave your cell phone behind.
  • Immerse yourself in water. Soaking in a tub, pond or even better – the ocean. Salt water draws energy away faster than fresh water.
  • Use Breathing and meditation techniques to calm your nervous system.
  • Listen to music that you enjoy, that help balance your current state.
  • When your nervous system is over stimulated, use up the energy; go to the gym, run bicycle, and exercise.
  • When using your cell phone, wear the corded headset to talk. A Bluetooth earpiece isn’t recommended as it has the same EMF as holding the cell to your ear.
  • If you’re having trouble sleeping, placing tinfoil under your mattress will help shield you from EMFs.
  • Take regular breaks from using your computer and cell phone.
  • Unplug any electronic devices around your house that aren’t being used. Even when plugged in, they draw a small current of electricity.
  • Keep a healthy diet and strong immune system.

Intuition: That Still Small Voice

“The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you and you don’t know why or how.”

― Albert Einstein

Dear Friends,
Oh, still small voice, whispering from the heart; inspiring sudden knowledge and bodily responses… What is it that inspires you?

Our intuition is our internal GPS. It is always on and talking to us all throughout the day and participates in all of our experiences. It is our constant guide and companion, yet not always easy to hear. We’ve all experienced a sudden knowing or inspiration, but often even when we do, we either just ignore it or don’t trust it and listen to our mind instead.

It is especially difficult when the issue at hand is very emotional. Sometimes then, we default to the mind and thoughts. The mind, however doubting, is much louder, insistent, and very logical.

So how do I know I’m even using my intuition?

Here are a few examples of ways you’ve been using your intuition:

You have a feeling you should avoid the highway and instead take the longer and thus less logical route to get home, only to find out the highway was blocked due to a major accident.

Maybe you are out at Starbucks and see someone across the room that smiles at you. You immediately know you like this person and will become friends, and you do.

You feel drawn to stop by the grocery store for some sundry items, only to run into an old friend you haven’t seen for a long time, yet you’ve been thinking about in the last few days.

Listening to your intuition is an incredibly valuable skill to have!

Here are a few tips to inspire your intuition and allow its guidance into your everyday life:

  1. Keep a journal: This allows you to free your mind to take on other tasks as well as provide a place to keep track of your intuitions and accuracy. This will help evoke confidence in your inner voice.
  2. Turn off your inner judge: Once the critic stops, you’ll be surprised how much information your intuition provides for you, simply because you’re allowing it.
  3. Time for quiet contemplation: Silence allows one to decompress from our over stimulating, noised based world. Allow room to explore your inner self, thoughts and feelings.

Honoring Your Empathic Nature

Honoring Your Empathic Nature published on No Comments on Honoring Your Empathic Nature

I would venture to guess, that many of you hesitate at the prospect of going where there are large crowds. Maybe this is because events like parties, concerts, or even a short trip to the mall leaves you feeling weary and disoriented? Or perhaps you have that friend, (you know which one) whom leaves you exhausted with just a phone conversation?

I feel your pain… literally.

These are symptoms of being empathic. Empathy is your ability to feel, in your body, another’s experience. The experience may be physical, emotional, energetic, painful, or joyful. You may or may not receive any external reason why you’re feeling this, but you feel it anyway.
Being empathic is an asset, but it unusually makes you vulnerable to the emotions of others; taking them on much the same way that you’d catch a cold. Being this sensitive can result in anxiety, depression, chronic stress, and physical pain syndromes more often than those who are less empathic.

Empathic Checklist:

  • When you are around certain people or in crowds, do you feel drained?
  • Have you ever had an instant liking or disliking to someone?
  • Have you ever sensed how someone was feeling in spite of how they were acting or claiming?
  • Do you have trouble with boundaries? Sometimes it’s difficult to know which experiences are yours and which come from others; or when it’s appropriate to open yourself for connection or to close up.
  • Do you often need time alone to recharge and balance yourself?

Even when we’re aware of them, these patterns are hard to change. But, the most important step is being aware of these sensations; then you can sort out what they are, and how to manage them. To be a healthy empath requires daily practice.

Check back for follow-up articles. I plan on expanding greatly on the topic of Empathic Abilities.
