So tell me now – What am I thinking?

Sometimes conversations come up about people being intuitive or psychic, and people poke fun at the subject. They think being psychic means that they should be able to walk up to that person and ask them what they are thinking and get an answer.  That really isn’t how it works.

The only way to explain it from personal experience is to say that it is like you are dreaming, and someone is tapping you on the shoulder and telling you something through a sort of mind speak. Those messages can get hung up in your brain like a fishing hook and continue to nag at you for hours. They may become so strong that you feel the need to call the person or message them immediately. You may even begin to send them good energy or, if it is your way, pray for them.  You see, being psychic isn’t a religion based thing.  It is a human thing.  Religion has nothing to do with it. We are all made of vibrational energy that comes and goes.  Back and forth the energy flies around as we put out thoughts, words, and actions into the universe. It’s kind of like Star Wars in a sense; if you can stay with me here.  If we choose to align ourselves with the dark side and throw negative thoughts, words and energy out there, that is what we get back. With so much going on around us, it’s hard to remember this, but just take one day to give it a whirl and watch what happens.

There are so many psychic abilities out there as well. We can have one, just a few, or many. Being an empath is also a psychic ability. This means you are highly sensitive to others feelings or senses. This one is tough. It’s hard to be around anyone you know is lying to you. You just know if they are. I mean without a shadow of a doubt.  You feel when they are sick or hurting or even happy.  It wasn’t until recently that I even knew that this had a name, and this was something I have been gifted with since I was a child.  Here’s a great definition from psychic-junkie.com –   

Empath: A psychic empath (sometimes called a Sensitive) takes on other people’s feelings of pain or pleasure, actually feeling the emotions of others. For a psychic empathy healer it is an ability that can help in relating the symptoms and cause of a client’s ailment. However many empaths would rather not have this sensitivity as they can experience life as an emotional roller coaster when in the midst of emotionally high people. Shopping malls can be quite traumatic for these sensitives.”

Sometimes we can also get messages through things we see and hear around us. It’s hard to tell when and how these things can manifest themselves. It can happen while you sleep, or while you are awake. Anything around you can be a sign. For the longest time, I asked to see what it was I needed to know or hear. For some reason now, I see eyes in a lot in things. The first time it happened, it came in the form of the ‘Eye of Horus’ in a tree.  I snapped a photo of a tree, and didn’t notice it until later while I was editing the photo. The Eye of Horus stands for protection. Every time I see an eye in something now, I see it as a sign from the universe that we are being protected.  I snapped another one yesterday. I have posted them both above for your to see. This is just one example. This can be songs, things people say, or things you may get from a poem. It all depends on your surroundings. Getting in touch with them is your first step. Sitting in the quiet is another way you can get in touch with your surroundings in any setting. Also, be quiet when you are out and just observe people and things. You will be surprised how much you can pick up on that others will not. It’s really that simple.

Just try to get in touch with your own intuition. Yes, that is a psychic ability, and we all have that. Always follow your gut!  Those gut feelings are always there to guide and protect us. Just make sure you take time to meditate, cleanse and shield yourself.  If you don’t know about those things, you can do your own research on Google. There are many ways of doing this, but we can work on those things another day.

For now remember this, just because you have never experienced something yourself, doesn’t mean it doesn’t or never happened. Things happen around us all the time that we do not see. Pay attention and sooner or later you will see.  All we can do is try to understand those we do not understand.  Maybe this will help someone understand.  Those of us that do have these abilities just want to try to understand them ourselves, and use them for good wherever and whenever we can. We are just open to seeing the world a little differently.  Hope you have a better understanding now. We are just getting started.

Have a wonderful day.

Get Back On Track and Breathe

Relax and breathe

Focus, and the breath kept coming up this morning. It’s easy to see why, when all morning there were also signs of low vibrations in all conversations. The connections we have, the way we humans think. It all causes a reaction. A chain of reactions, that most of the time we aren’t even aware of.

Where do focus and the breath come together? Let’s take a look and see.

An observation of conversations from the last few weeks and days has led to an unsettling amount of chaos amongst quite a few people in this circle of friends and loved ones. People make statements claiming something, then turn around and say the complete opposite, and do things that make those observing, just shake their heads, question their validity as a teacher or expert in their field, and maybe even walk away. Especially when it comes to business. We must be consistent in our focus and in our goals. When you are all over the place and chaotic, it’s hard for others to take you seriously. And yes, we need to be taken seriously. Life is serious business.

As a former successful business owner for seven years, it’s easy to see how people get easily distracted by their competitors, their failures, and other things that come up everyday, and lose their focus. This is no different in our spiritual life. We see someone doing better than us, and maybe working with other folks when they said they wanted to work with us. Or maybe we think they are more spiritual than we are. Maybe they are working with other people, or, they seem like they may be too busy to chat with us. Well, they are focusing on their own path and journey. It really doesn’t matter, and that shouldn’t be our focus. The universe wants us all to be successful, so no need to get bent out of shape. How can you stay on track and stay focused?

Build a Vision Board – This can be as big or as small as you want it to be. You can cut out or draw pictures of your dreams and inspirations, write down your ultimate goals and display it where you will see it everyday to stay focused

1. Choose specific goals and stick to them – These might be spiritual, financial; or maybe health related, learning a new language or a specific trade or other new skill. It can be anything. Never limit yourself. You’ve got this! Now take a deep breath. I mean literally speaking. Take a deeep breath.

2.  Make it your own – Find pictures of things associated with your goals. If you are wanting to manifest something, find a photo associated with that particular goal or thing and place it on your board. Write your goals next to the photos. You can always do a Google search on vision boards and take ideas from others. This will help you to build your board specific to your goals, but also allow you to brainstorm on some of your own. Take another deep breath.

3.  Keep it positive – Make sure you use positive pictures and words to put on your board and look at it everyday, with those words in mind. Examples are – growth, successful, happy, inspire, healthy, joy, peaceful, etc. Are you ready? Take another deep breath.

4.  Stay focused on you. When you compare yourself with others, that is when you lose your true focus. This isn’t about how much others are doing and where they are in comparison to you. You are the focus. This is about you, and when you start to compare, you forget your ultimate goals. Again…take a deep breath.

5.  Look at your board everyday. Make sure you keep those things as your focus and stay on track. Stay on the path to the goals you made, and remember to update the details to get to those ultimate goals. This board is your plan to reach them, so the more you look at it, the more you will find ways to reach those specific goals. Yes…let’s do it again. Take that breath.

6.  Be happy where you are right now. Take a deep breath every chance you get, and make that a goal as well. We humans breath approximately 1200 to 1700 breaths a day, however, we take that for granted, and we also hold our breath a lot. Focus on the breath today as well. This is the most important focus. You might want to find the word breath or breathe and put it on your board. It will keep you aware and focused as well, and can be a reminder that we do take advantage of the breath, and when we think about this, we realize how carried away and anxious we allow ourselves to become over things we have zero control over.

Now go, and have a lovely weekend.

Happy Deep Breathing!

Love and Light,

Emma

Change Your Language, Change Your Life

Today was a much-needed day of accomplishment. All this hard work and stress is finally turning into something more pleasant and fulfilling. The list of things to do to help Mom become more independent have dwindled down, and have also been lessons on how wonderful life can truly be. Apparently, it’s all in the way we look at things.

Not too long ago, the subject of the way we look at things came up during conversation with my husband. His views on life are very interesting and intelligent to say the least. He goes to a certain music forum almost everyday to read others posts, and observe and take in their stories. On this particular evening, we were discussing something about our attitudes on life and how we look at our daily activities.
The mention of some not so great tasks came up, and he brought up ‘Pronoia’, which had recently been read about, and even conversed with someone about other than him.  Someone in the forum he visits, was posting about this book and talking about our language, and the way we perceive and discuss our daily activities. Complaints were being made about some activities concerning a not so desired task at hand for that day.  What was discussed is how we say things like – “I have to go do the laundry.” vs, “I get to go do laundry.” Now this may seem silly or trivial, however, hold this thought for a few minutes.  How often do we think about how we use our minds, and our speech to make life more difficult? Do we even give it a thought?

Now, keeping this in mind, let’s go on. As a guest on a friend’s webcam show recently, we were discussing Eckhart Tolle and his book,  ‘A New Earth’, which happens to be my favorite book. I was asked to read something from the book, and this is what came up when opening the book –  CONTENT AND STRUCTURE OF THE EGO:  “The egoic mind is completely conditioned by the past. Its conditioning is twofold: It consists of content and structure. In the case of a child who cries in deep suffering because his toy has been taken away, the toy represents content. It is interchangeable with any other content, any other toy or object. The content you identify with is conditioned by your environment, your upbringing, and surrounding culture. Whether the child is rich or poor, whether the toy is a piece of wood shaped like an animal or a sophisticated electronic gadget makes no difference as far as the suffering caused by its loss is concerned. The reason why such acute suffering occurs is concealed in the word “my,”and it is structural. The unconscious compulsion to enhance one’s identity through association with an object is built into the very structure of the egoic mind. One of the most basic mind structures through which the ego comes into existence is identification. The word “identification” is derived from the Latin word idem, meaning “same” and facere , which means “to make.” So when I identify with something, I “make it the same.” The same as what? The same as I.  I endow it with a sense of self, and so it becomes part of my “identity.” One of the most basic levels of identification is with things: My toy later becomes my car, my house, my clothes, and so on. I try to find myself in things but never quite make it and end up losing myself in them. That is the fate of the ego.”

Another guest on the show mentioned that we should try to spend “one day” without uttering the words I, me, my, and mine, in all communications. This was very powerful, and we all agreed we would try that.  Here we are, four days later. Not only is it hard to think about how I “get” to do things vs I “have” to do things, but trying to express yourself without saying any of these words in conversation is extremely complicated, and almost impossible. Writing like this, is much easier than letting our language flow without any of these things coming out of your mouth.  So… the journey continues. Not only does it continue, but it now got much more complicated and much harder.  But we’ve got this, if we push through it.

Going to Mom’s to clean, do laundry and be around her as she is in her stage of life she is in, is usually hard. Yesterday, it was “getting” to go to her house, and keeping in mind that we are both still here on this earth, and able to enjoy life. The concept here is to understand that we are here with everyday tasks that we can either choose to enjoy, or begrudgingly just “get through”.  It actually worked, and we had a wonderful day. This will be the mantra from now on.  It just has to be placed in the brain as a reminder during meditation. Well, actually…constantly.

As for using none of these words in our speech. Still working on this one. Posting on social media, keeping this in mind is hard. Writing this blog just got more complicated. Now, try doing this while you speak with others. It’s really, really, NOT easy at all.  We are complicated beings. More so than we ever think about.  More so than we ever care to practice.

Thank you Eckhart Tolle for your insight. Still working on this, and forever will be. Rob Breszny, your book will be read shortly. Already discovered your website.

So much reading, and so much to learn. We “get” to do this though, but only if we choose to.

Namaste
