My Beliefs about Life Transition

February 28, 2011

I am in the process of dealing with my Mother’s transition from what I know as earth based living to spirit based living.

In the abstract this all seems to simple.  In the actual, it is very complex or at least that is how it feels now.

Why is it that so many of our beliefs are simple in the abstract and often challenging in the physical?  What is it about beliefs that causes us to respond in this manner?  Do we have underlying earth-based beliefs that cause the more spiritual beliefs to become more challenging to confront and deal with?

What is your experience?

How would you like to consider shifting some of your long-held  beliefs?

Five Simple Steps for Developing Intuition

February 28, 2011

Today I am participating in a blog tour for a new book titled Whose Stuff Is This? Finding Freedom from the Thoughts, Feelings, and Energy of Those Around You written by Yvonne Perry. The book has more than two dozen proven and effective ways to clear and protect your energy field. This guide offers empowering, proactive techniques to help empathic people manage energy overload.  See http://whosestuffisthis.com/ for details.  

Yesterday, Yvonne visited Joyce Shafer’s blog newsletter http://stateofappreciation.webs.com/ . Today, she is my guest blogger. I hope you enjoy the article she wrote about how to develop your intuition.

Five Simple Steps for Developing Intuition

By Yvonne Perry

I believe everyone is intuitive regardless of background. I’m not saying that everyone has the makings of being a psychic medium, but we are all born with a varying degree of intuitiveness. I’m sure you can think of a time when you have experienced an inner knowing, voice, vision, or feeling that instructed you not to go in a certain direction, or to make a particular selection, or perhaps you knew when someone was lying to you.  

While we are born with intuition, we can choose to either shut it out and ignore it or listen to this guidance and allow it to become clearer. By choosing to develop your intuition, you can gain insight into daily situations and make more informed decisions throughout your life. 

Some ways to tap into your intuition include the following:

Grounding. Electricity always needs to be grounded in order not to overload. We have an electric field around us that is our personal energy. It can be grounded to the Earth through walks in nature, working in the garden, or visualizing a cord of light extending from your feet into the Earth.

Meditation. To find your intuitive self, you have to be alone in order to get to know who you are, but many times we are too busy to tune into the inner voice of guidance. Meditation or silence allows us to hear our intuition. A lot of people think meditation is a state of not having any thoughts but the idea is to let the thoughts come and go without being attached to them. You will know when you have tapped into higher wisdom. The goal in meditation is to let go and just be.

Conscious breathing is very balancing, calming, and beneficial. It refreshes every cell in our body as we take in oxygen. Five minutes of deep breathing while counting your inhalations and exhalations can help restore a sense of calmness and regulate the heartbeat. Controlling and counting the breaths develops the concentration and focus needed to manage mental noise. Do this while sitting in a comfortable position with your spine straight.

Writing or journaling allows us to clear our minds of distracting thoughts and get down to what is really bothering us. This is when we can begin to see the solutions that come from within. Before beginning your writing session, light a candle and ask for guidance. Then, write whatever comes into your head. You may be surprised at what you read later.

Yoga is one of the best modalities because it incorporates grounding, centering, breathing, and exercise while connecting with the Divine. Even if only for a few minutes, this will help open the chakras and refresh your mind and body.

If you want to learn how to manage your intuitive gift and clear your energy field, begin to nurture your body, mind, and spirit. Your time and attention to the spiritual aspect of who you are will bring forth the knowledge of your inner self.

The Belief in Who You are Becoming

February 17, 2011

I believe  this quote says it best:

You have an innate right to shift, change, become a whole new person if you wish. To those who want to hold you to who you were yesterday simply say “let me inform you of who I am today.” ~ Beverlee Garb

Believe in who you are becoming and let no one stand in your way.

A story I found about St Valentine:

According to one legend, Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl — who may have been his jailor’s daughter — who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today. Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories certainly emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic, and, most importantly, romantic figure. It’s no surprise that by the Middle Ages, Valentine was one of the most popular saints in England and France.
