There is Only One Power

f1ebcddf4922739fd9ec2dea754d7baeIt’s easy to get thrown out of balance by the events of the world. Particularly the recent political chaos that has left many of us wondering where the presence of justice, kindness and compassion reside. The dark secret of sexual abuse became public this week. We purged ourselves and began a massive collective detox from the centuries old pattern and all too common practice of hiding this dark truth. We are only as sick as our secrets and we are healing at our core. Of course, there was denial and resistance. Darkness hides from the light.

The world can seem to be split in two, the physical and the spiritual, and this tends to create division within ourselves as well. Although it may not be readily apparent and obvious, there is only one power in the universe and the beyond. Whatever you call it, this one power creates and nurtures all of life and expresses itself through love and compassion.  This is the power that can heals us individually and collectively and bridges the gap between the seen and known and the unseen and elusive. It speaks to us from a quiet inner place and reminds us of its grace and goodness.

Don’t give your power over to external events. It’s tempting to do this and spiral down into a dark place, overwhelmed and without hope.

This is a powerful moment of individual and collective transformation. When we remain positive, love ourselves and others, even those that think differently than we do, the one power of the universe flows through us.  Evil eventually destroys itself. It is a dark ghost that feeds on our fears and negativity. Without this it starves and turns in on itself and devours its own.

What we are here to learn, in this time and place and be a witness to, is the crumbing of the old and the emergence of the power of love. The creative, indestructible and life giving power of love. Listen to it, it lives within you.

The Psychic- Hero’s Journey

images (1)Becoming aware of your innate psychic abilities and making the decision to further develop them, embodies many of the characteristics of the hero’s journey. Joseph Campbell in his book, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, describes the universal archetypal pattern of the hero and how it guides human development and spiritual transformation. Since the beginning of recorded time, we have sought the adventure and challenge of exploring the unknown and reaching beyond ourselves. 

The archetypal pattern of the hero begins in the safe and comfortable environment of the ordinary world. Within this predictable shell of the known, the hero goes about his or her day to day routines with little thought as to what lies beyond. The hero does not necessarily crave adventure or new experiences. However, unexpectedly and seemingly out of nowhere, something comes along and calls the hero out of his or her comfort zone. 

The invitation into psychic awareness often initially begins in this same way. You may be going about your daily routines and suddenly an uninvited psychic experience comes your way.

Here are a few common ways that psychic awareness may unexpectedly enter our life.

You suddenly think of someone who you have not heard from in a long time. Then later that day, you receive a phone call from him or her. After dreaming of a lost item, you find it in the exact place that you dreamt it would be. The gut feeling that a financial investment will not work out, goes ignored. Despite the intuitive warning, you go forward with it, only to lose money when it suddenly loses value. These kind of psychic insights and feelings often open the door to our curiosity and hint at a realty that goes against the accepted norms.

When an unsought psychic awareness comes our way, the carefully laid inner structure of how we thought the world worked, cracks a bit and it leaves us wondering.

How did I know that? Is this just an odd coincidence? What else is possible?

Questions begin to flood our mind and we find that we have no answers. The rational, logical conscious self is perplexed and confused. We may even try to rationalize, ignore and talk ourselves out of believing what we have experienced. However, we may also be curious, energized and motivated to know and discover more.

It is at this crucial juncture that we confront the next step of the hero’s journey. We can either cling to the old beliefs and sense of reality or move forward into unknown territory.

Once the hero begins to explore the unknown, unforeseen tests, challenges and obstacles crop up. However, when confronted, these obstacles and challenges bring with them unexpected transformative gifts and an increase in intuitive-psychic and self-awareness.

Being Nice

It is not always easy to be yourself. It can be especially difficult if you were brought up to be nice and please others. When we want another to like and respect us, it is tempting to align with their likes, opinions and expectations. Even though you may want to share your opinions and feelings with another, you may hold back and stifle your truth if you feel it is counter to what they think or feel. You may have been brought up to believe that disagreement or a difference in opinion my cause waves or problems. Sometimes it may feel as if you have to make a choice between being true to yourself or failing to live up to what and who another expects you to be. While appreciating another’s perspective and point of view is a positive way to get to know another and become closer, be careful not to stuff away your authentic thoughts and feelings. All too often in our desire to be nice, we compromise and silence our truth.

stunning-examples-of-nature-photographyWhen we are young we are taught the value of playing nice, sharing our toys and not being demanding and mean to others. As we get older, we continue to be taught in overt and subtle ways to silence our emotions and wait our turn. While these lessons can be valuable and help us to respect others and refine our ego, it can also give us the unconscious message that the raw truth of who we are, cannot be trusted. One false move in saying something that another does not agree with or sharing a feeling that may be too intense, could doom us to a life of loneliness.

The tendency to hide our true self is made easier when we know what another wants and expects. A friend, family member, co-worker or acquaintance may be blatant or subtle in expressing their desires and expectations. It can be tempting to simply submit. Being able to make another happy, keep peace or sympathize and support another’s beliefs and opinions seems innocent enough. Yet, attempting to influence and connect to another with behavior, emotions or beliefs that are not genuine, only creates a false connection.

Being nice can be a trap which eventually leads to a loss of self. If you expect others to always be nice or if someone expects this from you, real intimacy and deep sharing may be compromised. There is a difference between being nice and being kind. When you are kind, you can speak with truth and compassion. Being nice often means smiling when you do not agree or like something. Be kind and give your true self to others.

If you are finding if difficult to be yourself when confronted with another’s expectations, take small steps. Sometimes it is enough to simply say nothing. You can be quiet and detach from the pressure to join in and act in ways that do not feel authentic. You can be polite, kind and still be you. Being yourself does not mean that you have to be out spoken and confrontative. If you  do not feel comfortable speaking your truth, breathe deeply and know that this will not always be the case. Take some time away from those who pressure you to align with their vision of who they want you to be. Recognize your true thoughts, feelings and beliefs. Focus on what you need to do to take care of yourself. Be kind to you.      From Discover Your Authentic Self

Are you an Emotional Intuitive?

530a397ebc912Those with a high degree of emotional intuition, often share common characteristics. Most are highly sensitive and empathetic, especially with those who are in pain or suffering in some way. With a desire to support, help and be of service to others, they may believe that love can heal all. It is not surprising that those with a high degree of emotional intuition also tend to be emotionally intelligent. Common traits of emotional intelligence include such thing as the ability to be aware of, communicate, and express emotions, as well as the ability to skillfully help others to process their emotions. An emotional intuitive may not only feel another’s emotions, they are also able to lighten another’s emotional stress and worries through a kind of emotional psychic intervention. They often do this unknowingly by sending pure waves of unconditional healing love energy to those who they intuit are in need.

The raw openness through which those with a high degree of emotional intuition intuit, can leave them feeling vulnerable and overly sensitive. Stressful environments, disagreements, witnessing another’s suffering or being in the midst of angry or unhappy people, can leave them feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. Many emotional intuitives have no inner shield or protective boundary and unknowingly feel and intuit both positive and toxic emotional energy, often to their determent.

Due to the magnitude and volume of emotions that an emotional intuitive absorbs and feels, many suffer from free floating stress and anxiety. Because of this, some withdraw from social interactions or situations in an attempt to avoid emotional overload. However because they are intuitively connected to emotional energy, this is rarely effective. Even when sitting alone in a room, they can still absorb the emotional energy of others or situations. Some emotional intuitives unconsciously harden their hearts in an attempt to protect themselves or intuitively try to shut off their emotional receptivity. When the pain, grief and stress of others and the world becomes too much to bear, they attempt to shield themselves by withdrawing and closing their heart. However this is not an effective solution and often creates a sense of inner emptiness and unhealthy detachment.  An emotional intuitive needs the vibrations of love almost as much as they need oxygen to survive. When they close their heart, they can no longer feel and benefit from the rich waves of pure love that flow through them.

Day to day life for those with a primary and innate mode of intuiting through their emotions, may at times feel like an emotional roller coster. If you have a high degree of emotional intuition, you may not be aware of the degree to which you intuit another’s emotional energy. Because you were born with this innate sensitivity, you may not always be able to distinguish your own feelings from the feelings that you have absorbed from others. When young, many emotional intuitives become the emotional barometer for the family and unconsciously try to balance and harmonize the emotional energy within the home. They may be viewed as over sensitive and moody and may express the bottled up and repressed emotions of other family members.

While our self-generated emotions and feelings can help us to increase our self awareness and make good decisions and choice, emotions that have been absorbed from others are not as beneficial. We cannot process and gain personal insight from intuited emotions. While they can help us to understand and develop our intuition, intuited emotions do not provide us with insight into personal preferences, issues and needs.

Once you become aware of your emotions and feelings and the emotional energy that you are absorbing from others and the environment, you can release and let go of those emotions that are creating stress or are toxic to your mind, body and spirit. As you do this, it becomes easier to tune into the intuitive heart where calming, healing and insightful wisdom resides.

Our Next Evolutionary Step

        Given the tumultuous world that greets us each day, psychic awareness may seem to be on the back burner of importance. Somewhere up there with the search for the Loch Ness monster or understanding magic tricks. An interesting pastime maybe, but not the stuff that we need to navigate through the highlighted and underlined political, economic and environmental concerns that steer our very existence. Even in the best of times, psychic awareness doesn’t grab our attention as something that is essential to pay attention to or to develop.

I get it. What we seem to most need are real solutions and new ideas and ways to better navigate our way through our everyday challenges. However, let’s be real. Logic and linear finite thinking isn’t cutting it. It’s not that we don’t have great ideas. We have plenty of them and technology and science and all kinds of useful three dimensional awareness. But, we are not making use of our total being and the power and abilities that each one of us embodies.

The means to move forward in personal and collective well-being and harmony will not be found in the known, but in our next evolutionary step. All of life is waiting for us to lift our heads out of the fog and confusion and into enlightened clarity. There is an inner rumbling and a yearning calling out for us to embrace our true authentic power. We are more than the sack of bones, cravings and hopes that we slosh around in. Until we listen and take the next step, we are doomed to be controlled by the finite chaotic world.

There is an energy, a soul, a spirit within you that transcends the limitations that you confront individually and that we confront collectively. To tap into it we have to understand its language. It doesn’t speak just to just our brain, but to our heart, our gut and our soul. This is the language of intuition.

The origin of the word psychic comes from the Greek word, psȳchikós, which means of the soul.

When we are aware of and listen to our intuition, our inner psychic, we are aided by limitless wisdom, awareness and love. We are no longer confined by material laws and we are guided into infinite possibilities and new creation.

The Protective Power of Love

As you do this, it becomes easier to tune into the intuitive heart and further develop and use the psychic abilities of emotional intuition in beneficial ways. 

The heart is the psychic center for emotional intuition and your connection to divine and unconditional love. Love in its highest form is positive vital life force energy. This kind of love elevates our consciousness and shields us from lower toxic energies. When your intuition is aligned with the pure vibrations of love, you are protected from the harsh effects of negative and potentially damaging emotional energy. Guided by the wisdom of your heart, you cease absorbing others energy and instead become a force of positivity and healing. Psychic love is healing and compassionate awareness. It is a calming balm that allows us to be a source of and healing to others.

If you have a high degree of emotional intuition it is essential that you open and connect to the higher vibrations of love. We all need love. If you primarily intuit through emotional energy, the need is even greater. The higher vibrations of unconditional and divine love restores and creates balance and harmony. It strengthens and protects you from the potential debilitating effects of toxic and caustic emotional energy. It helps to soothe the effects of emotional sensitivity and enables you intuit other’s emotions without absorbing them. Love opens the door and empowers you to embrace your intuitive gifts and use them in life enhancing ways.

Obstacles to Psychic Awareness: #1 Doubt

Doubt is a common obstacle that many must confront when developing psychic abilities. We may at times doubt that psychic awareness is natural, real and possible, doubt our capacity  to develop it and doubt the intuitive messages that we receive. Doubt is a product of the ego and it will regularly surface when developing psychic abilities. How could it not? The ego does not want the surly upstart of psychic awareness to take over the reign of your day to day consciousness.

Recognize doubt in its many disguises. It can surface as skepticism and a need to have psychic phenomena meet an unreasonable standard of proof. It is always healthy and a good idea to question psychic information and be mindful of errors in insights and interpretation. However, there is no perfect science in psychic phenomena. It is an evolving art and while it is important to notice any mistakes that you may make when developing psychic abilities, learn from them and keep moving forward. Too often, the psychic arts are held to a higher standard than other skills and talents. For instance, we do not dismiss the medical profession as invalid when an illness has been misdiagnosed and we are not expelled or quit school when we do poorly on an exam. It is all part of the process of growth and increased awareness.

Doubt often surfaces in my psychic development classes and I encourage my students to confront and work through it. Everyone experiences some degree of doubt. But don’t let it control and limit your psychic growth. Recognize the difference between doubt and questioning. Questioning is a positive tool that can help you to refine psychic abilities and become aware of its subtle nuances.

For instance: It may, at times, be necessary to question the source of your intuitive impressions. It can helpful to ask yourself if you are receiving psychic energy information or if you are generating insights and impressions based on your own thoughts, beliefs and desires. You may need to question your interpretation of what you are psychically receiving and it may be helpful to ask yourself what you may need to do differently to better improve your abilities. Questions can play a crucial role in the process of noticing, discerning and understanding psychic impressions. This is not the case with doubt. Instead of encouraging your development, doubt stops you in your tracks. It says that you have no psychic aptitude and natural abilities or that psychic phenomena is fake and phony.

Confront doubt and move through it with determination and persistence. As you do this you begin to receive the gift of soulful knowing. As you notice and feel the truth deep of psychic insight, you experience a recognizable and sure sense of knowing. This kind of awareness comes from the soul. Doubt may overwhelm you with confusion and produce anxiety. Yet, your soul always knows when it meets the truth.

Become familiar with what it feels like to receive psychic energy and form a relationship with this connection. When you experience a clear gut-affirming psychic awareness hold onto it and feel it. You may not always understand and be able to adequately put what you receive in words and interpret it correctly. This will come in time. It is enough at the beginning to recognize the unique feeling that accompanies a true connection to psychic energy information. 

Once you have received energy information and insights, you may begin to doubt your ability to interpret and understand what you have received. In this phase, questioning can also play an important role. If you are not sure if your interpretations are correct, intuitively check for  accuracy. Ask yourself if it feels right? What does your gut or heart and heart tell you? These are messages from you soul that will let you know if your interpretations are correct. 

There will be other times when doubt surfaces. When it does, remind yourself that that your insecurities are coming from your ego. Shift your awareness deeper within, feel and listen for the voice of your soul. Trust your inner sense of soul-awareness when it surfaces and you will be able to rely on it whenever you use your psychic ability.
