Emotional Releases; Practical Advice on How and Why.

spIt is not unusual to read an article saying, release the old, make way for the new (lol guilty). Yet what does it mean to release something? And what are we releasing?

Many will say releasing is about getting over old emotions and situations…forgiveness even, and in some ways they are correct. I have to emphasize here though, on this page, forgiveness of others is entirely voluntary. Forgiveness of self though, well that is the truest and most selfless, act of love. For many self love is the hardest road to find and then stay upon.

When you enter a new town, you know where you want to go, but finding your way there can be the hardest part of the journey. There are stops, road works and detours all specifically put in your way, to halt your journey, get you frustrated and…lost. Just when you have been going round and round in circles, you find a sign, an arrow, or actually manage to read the map! Whammo the right path, the right road, the right direction.

And that is what releases are, not the detours, but the signposts, upon the journey of self love. They allow you to find and follow the direction, of the real and authentic you.

At a psychological level we are looking at halting the flight fight or freeze reflex, that affects the average person 10-20 times a day. That is 10-20 times a day where our minds are fooling themselves, they are in a life or death situation. (sometimes they are, yes)…but 10-20 times a day? The affects of the stress hormones in turn, shrink the hippocampus of the brain. This part of our brain helps regulate emotions and is essential for  memory. Ever notice when you are stressed how easy it is to loose the car keys? Not to mention how easily an emotional situation fires off and into more drama!

What I would like you to take away from this little post is…releases are not some airy fairy, pie in the sky new age speak. They are a profoundly meaningful and deep psychological tool, that will physically help, ease the brain (halting the escalating flight, fight, freeze effect) allow calmness, clarity and the beauty and truth of who you really are to emerge.

 Right; Ever practical, here’s a little exercise I would like you to try.

Untitled design (6)  External Release

If you are in a state of anxiety, then this is a great breathing exercise to do before release work. And because we are possibly going to be thinking of some upsetting situations, it is a great breath to return to.

If you do two cycles of breath, then think of a situation or person, place the vision of it/them in front of you. In your head say to the person or situation, I love you, I forgive you, I thank you. I release you.
And repeat, over and over again until you feel a “shift”, an emotional and physical change inside (usually around the stomach, you may even giggle). This is a very simple form of release.

And by the way, it is not necessary for you to believe that, you love the person, forgive them for what they have done,  thank them for the lesson learned, or even believe you have released them. Source and the sub-conscious mind takes care of that.

In essence though, As above so below~ As we think, so we attract. What you are actually saying is “I love me, I forgive me, I thank me, I release me.”

The psychology – if you can still the mind for 17 seconds (as happens in the breathing exercise) we begin to ‘reset’ the brain, halt and undo the fight or flight tendencies and damage. Going over, whilst maintaining this calm mindset and reviewing situations and people also begins to retrain the brain for if the situation should arise again.

 And in case you are wondering, yes the breathing is a really good start to easing panic attacks. But as I’ve said before…These things only work if you try them…And if this one doesn’t work for you, well don’t you worry, there are plenty more tools in the box. You Are Not Broken! You are

Gut Feeling! When Intuition Goes Wrong!

basic chakra(1)How often have you heard “trust your gut”?

I swear if I hear another thing thing about “trusting that gut feeling” I just might tear the Spiritual House down.

This may be true in someones world, but in mine, my gut got pretty screwed up. You see the intuition from my gut, that was supposed to keep me safe, was constantly over ridden.  The very people who were supposed to love me were the ones who were hurting me. So my gut got broken!  Did yours?

Hello! Two fold problem. Not only was my “gut’ being constantly over ridden but so was my trust. After all it was necessary in my mind to split the people I knew into the good part and the bad part…the good part for the neighbors and family to protect “our secret” and my survival, and the bad part (end this paragraph here as this topic is worthy of its own article).

There’s a spiritual explanation on this whole gut intuition thing. sacral You may of heard of the chakra. Well the one in the gut just below your tummy button, that is the sacral chakra, an important part of the spiritual energy system as it houses the flow of information around relationships and those emotional connections of sensuality and intimacy. Here’s the thing though, it houses the emotional “memory” of relationships and situations too.  So if you walk into a situation and your “gut” tightens, possibly it is your sacral, responding to stored or historical information. And you might start to see the problem here for your/my abused self. A lot of our historical information comes from a pretty skewed point of view.

So your walking down the street and you see this person and your gut goes bang, tight, and you think oh no, avoid, avoid, avoid, but

  • You are not quite sure, and you are going to over ride this feeling anyway. After all that is what you have been trained to do. Or

  •  Perhaps you have read a couple of books and learned to trust your “gut”. so you do avoid the person and think, yay, phew safe! But!!! and its a big one. It may be that you actually avoided the man of your dreams, the connection to a better job etc, because your gut was working off of “historical” information, you will now never know. So what to do?

The answer lies within our hearts, or heart center chakra. heart-chakra-colors Generally recognized as being  between the breasts, this energy center holds and moves through, love energy, of the deep, sacred, unconditional kind. The heart has a spiritual intuition all of it’s own. This intuition and energy is easily accessed, simply place your left hand over the heart or chakra area, place your attention there also, and envision this area expanding. Notice what you notice, perhaps a flood of warmth, or love entering your torso, maybe a feeling of lightness. For now just notice the sensation.

Right, ever practical, here’s a little exercise I would like you to do . Think of a person or situation that has recently made your tummy tighten. Got it. Good…now place your left hand over the heart chakra, experience this energy, and then, think of the situation again. Now notice what you notice, does your tummy relax? Does it stay tight? Does your heart sensation increase, decrease?  If your tummy relaxes and your heart remains expansive, then chances are your “gut”  intuition response was stimulated by a “historical” resonance or remembering, and this would of been a safe experience to visit; if however your “gut” remains tight and your heart sensation, stays the same or decreases…then you KNOW, your “gut” response was indeed correct. These are the intuition responses you should trust.

Try this little exercise over a few different scenarios within your memory banks. Notice the different responses between the sacral and heart intuition centers. When you become familiar with the different sensations, take the exercise and test it out on people and situations you cross whilst out and about. A necklace or adjusting the bra strap are great ways of disguising the hand over the chakra.

Yes trusting self and  feelings is a huge issue, especially when these have been manipulated to  serve the purpose of others. Developing little tools that work for you, like this heart/gut intuition test, is a great way of taking back personal power. You are not broken! And if this little tool doesn’t help you work out a tricky from a safe situation, well don’t you worry, I have a lot more. Work with me 😉 .

Safe Space Within; Survival Skills

yoga-2_1330518740_1382089477_540x540 People Talk of Safe Space,

And I used to think they were coming from outer space. Often their interpretation of safety was and still is, very different from mine. To many their homes as they were growing were safe places to be. Mine not so much. I used to disconnect my thoughts or mind from my body in order to escape. Whilst being abused, I used to travel to the stars. Always I buried myself in books; other worlds, the wardrobe, neighbors houses, any where, so as not to be at home, or in my body.

It was through burying myself in books that I came to appreciate just how special I am, and what gifts I was blessed with and to develop my own definition of safety.

Not all experiences are pleasant for the soul and indeed childhood abuse is the most painful form because it took us away from learning the things a child is supposed to learn, yet it teaches many different things.

When abused and your personal space is violated, the physical and emotional trauma a young body goes through at the hands of an adult, are extreme and the stress responses, as you know, leave there mark upon your soul for years, affecting, not only your physical functioning but your mental processing. One of the phenomena around the abuse you may of experienced is, dissociation, the ability to mentally leave the body, . Simply, its not safe within your body- time for your mind to get out. This is something that may stay with you forever, and many will tell you it is not a good thing. Yet this survival mechanism got you through. Indeed, when working for you in a new way, it may become an invaluable tool.

The mind leaving the body is something many Swami’s and Mystical peoples have sought to do for a long time. You have trained yourself to do this naturally and with a little adjustment, so that your mind is leaving voluntarily, under your control, you may experience the transition of survival tool to thriving gift also.

The first step to doing this is in making the mind understand that the body is a safe place to be in.  Until you recognize and deeply understand that your body is now back in your possession, and is as much your tool as your mind, then a tendency to harm it may continue.  Self harm in order to feel. Alcohol and drugs to escape memories. Abusive relationships to perpetuate your feelings of unworthiness and shame. In order to heal and realize your true spiritual gifts, the mind must be connected to the body and you must learn that the body is a safe space, not just the environment surrounding it, but the actual body, is a safe place for the mind to be within.

A relatively quick way of placing the mind within the body is to practice something called grounding. There are many different exercises  that teach a person  how to ground. I have recorded one and you can find the link to it below. Grounding exercises help to calm the mind, easing the fight, flight or freeze stress mechanisms and allow the mind to experience the body, as the vessel of joy and love it is supposed to be. As in all things grounding only works if you try it. So if you are ready to try something new, come at things from a different angle, then give this little exercise a go. It is quick, under five minutes (I do quick and free really well) and you just may find grounding makes a difference.

Wishing you well upon your journey,

Blessings

O.k. so you have shown up!

You are thinking good thoughts and learning to take responsibility for your energy. As shown in part one of this conscious creation series.

Now it’s time to work out how your particular Spiritual Pathway can be incorporated into the “Law of Attraction” styling. It’s really not that difficult…

     images-1universe


Pathways
There are quite possibly as many spiritual pathways as there are people.  It is not my intention here to go into each and every one. But rather to get you thinking about what they have in common.
  • Loving but Just Deities
  • Prayers or Meditations
  • ​LOVE
As Spiritual people it is more common than not to believe in an abundant universe, and loving God or Gods.  But if we believe this then why are they not more apparent?
The answers are pretty harsh. I’m not going to ask you to believe what I say out right. I have provided some creditable links, and I trust you to be able to search on your own.  All I ask is that for this piece you keep an open mind.  If something makes your stomach tighten, take notice! I am also going to ask that you find some time to sit with spirit, be open, and expect some answers.
​I write this with an energetic intention, and have asked source to guide my hand.
loving and just deity


Loving and Just Deities
For this section I am going to call the Deities Source.
Source is energy, we are energy, the world is made up of energy, in particular light and or electrical energy, that as it becomes more dense…takes on mass.
We have arrived on this earth to experience life as spiritual beings, living emotional lives, in a physical body in a physical world.  Yet why is life so daunting and so hard for so many…that not only have many forgotten there purpose in being here but they can no longer feel the Joy of their physical experience?
The answer is simple…We create our experiences. We create them with our thoughts and more importantly we create them with our feelings, our emotions, and those thoughts are coming from Sad and Tough environments.
Even whilst within the womb, we were picking up the emotions of our Mothers (remember every thought has an emotional charge). We carry the emotions of past generations within our genes (epi-genetics).  As soon as we are born we are amazing body language readers. We pick up on all around us, and if we were lucky enough to be born empaths then wow…we really pick up on peoples stuff on so many levels. We start to feel things that are not even ours.
Every time Mum and Dad fought…Every time one of them cried over a bill..or sold something to make ends meet, we took it in. It became part of our brain schemata, the way our neurons connected and developed.
Living within family environment may also of taught us other things like…you have to work hard for the money…or ghosts don’t exist…or we give of our time and energy for free, because that’s the godly thing to do. “Your gifts are a gift from God, you can’t charge for those”, even though you may of paid out quite a bit on courses (I personally will never be without a Mentor again) and yet a Doctor who also has a gift is allowed to make money, and lots of it!
We also buy into beliefs around magic…it can only be done this way or that…at certain times in certain ways…or…though shalt not suffer a witch to live!
A lot of the myths we surround ourselves are from the Mother Church. Money and Power; you can’t control powerful people, so here lets Call these ones heretics and kill em off, and take their land. And those ones are healing…we want the money for that..etc.
But regardless of where this stinking thinking came from…One thing is for sure, it has wiped the Joy off the face of Millions for many generations, who each in turn has affected the next generation…And then came the media.
 Unless we as Spiritual people get it together and start formulating and Consciously Creating in Numbers…Well who knows?
This is where the loving and just God/s come in…
We are loved…
We are supposed to live Joyful and Abundant lives.
If we take charge of our thoughts and emotions…
We Can

There is a way for you to have a life filled with Abundance and Joy. There is a way for YOU to make an effective difference within the world. No more powerlessness and waiting for Higher Power to work things out FOR you.

Practice and Pathways…we are all searching for our spiritual truths. This is all about the techniques different paths use to experience life more fully. More though, this is a call to action. USE those skills!

Intention. Working out exactly what you want. How to ask for it.

Making it Real: Part Two

Making it Real; Part One

Who would you rather see in control of World Resources. Rigid Policy Makers or Heart Centered Healers?

There is so much information out there.

Especially on “Consciously Creating” the “Magic of Manifestation” and “Manifest Abundance”.

Just like a light switch, You control  energy.

Do you want that control to be CONSCIOUS, or unconscious, remember, energy is flowing around and through you anyway.

Thoughts have an effect, words have an effect…yet it is our FEELINGS that induce the largest electrical charges within our brain. When you start to control your thoughts…and the feelings behind them, you have a measurable effect on the world.

This is “Conscious Creation”…it is the tool of “Magical Manifestation” and the way of “Manifesting Abundance.

Over the next Six weeks I’m  looking closely at what is meant by “Conscious Creation”. In particular how you can put this to work, for YOU incorporating your spiritual path.

Week One,

Support and safety

 emotional vibration chart   Energy Levels

What ever your spiritual path…Unless you are feeling safe and supported within your practice, there is very little chance your Intentions will work.
This is about more than thinking, this is about KNOWING you are safe, and that your energy is under your control.
Every day we come up against people, all people affect others in varying ways. You may have noticed around some friends you feel alive and vibrant. Whilst around others you feel drained and washed out. It all depends on the electrical levels of their energy and yours. The reasons for this are simple.
The person with the most stable energy wins!
Case 1.  You are Happy, you meet Mr Unhappy.
  • You have had a lot of practice at maintaining happy thoughts.
  • Mr Unhappy has not had a lot of practice at being a sad sack.
  • His Vibration will raise to yours.
Case 2. You are Happy, you meet Mr Unhappy.
  • Mr Unhappy has had a lot of practice at being a sad sack.
  • You have not had much practice at maintaining your happy space.
  • Your vibration will drop to match Mr Unhappy.
Case 3. You are well practiced at Happy, Mr Unhappy is well practiced at unhappy.
  • More than likely, you are not going to be able to stay in the same room together for too long.
  • These are the people you meet who irritate you with their chirpiness…or gloominess.
  • Your are both so stable within your emotional shell, that neither energy gives way to the other.
In order to bring about magical changes, we need to maintain our energy levels at least at 500, that of love.

Emotional-Abuse(2)_thumb     Psychic Attack

This is not as common as people think.  A psychic attack is when somebody sets out to deliberately cause you harm.
A more common cause of attack, that does affect your energy levels, is that of thought forms. The closer someone is to you (proximity) the more their thought forms will affect yours. A mother who’s teenagers are continually sounding angry messages, will not only affect the mother but the vibration will collect in the space. A friend or work mate who is jealous of you, may talk behind your back, collecting thoughts of ill will, or direct negative thoughts towards you. These collected negative vibrations towards you will result in a wearing down of your energy levels. These will often happen and become more directed as you evolve spiritually, and others seek to “keep you in your place”.
Arguably the most potent form of Attack, comes from within…our thoughts can become negative, we can lose our confidence, get caught up in the past, or second guess our decisions.
A true Psychic Attack, is when someone deliberately seeks the services of another (be it Witch or God) and intentionally directs thoughts of ill will so as to harm the recipient.
This ill will is usually directed at one or all of three areas
  1. Money
  2. Health
  3. Love
 Luckily effect is diminished through distance…Yet left unanswered, these intentions will have an effect.
Some signs you are being affected by thought forms or attack are
  1. People are eager to be negative around you
  2. People criticize whatever you are up too.
  3. People smile to your face but their body language or your intuition, tells a different story.
  4. You become drained and tired.
  5. Bad dreams awaken you from sleep.
  6. You have a “Gut Feeling”.
  7.  You have made someone with knowledge of the occult angry.

psychic shields     Shielding and Protection

Which ever Path you follow, my STRONG RECOMMENDATION, is that you forget about residing in a bubble of white light as being a single and adequate protection, for this magical and energetic work. The bubble of White Light when used on its own, is kind of like hiding under a rock. The strongest form of protection is internal, and arrives over time as your knowledge and strength of self become more apparent. This is when you “know” you are protected, and the level of detachment gained is such that others cannot penetrate your barriers.
I am going to suggest you work with three forms of shielding. You can develop these in ways that fit your paths practices.
The shielding needs to be
  • Internal
  • External
  • With an extra Wall, Between you and the perceived “Negative Thinker”
For example, a Christian might,
  1. Ask Christ to enter their body, so Christ may protect and shine forth from within (taking communion and prayer)
  2. Surround themselves with Christs and Gods love
  3. Ask Christ to erect a barrier between themselves and____so that they may deal with this person, in love and with compassion, but not be drawn into their drama, or affected by their Will, but only Gods Will.
It is helpful to sit with self, and ask, from which direction any forms of negativity are arising. This will aid in your defense as you will know where or between whom you need to place additional external barriers.
Archangel-Michael     Light Workers
Archangel Michael is the recognized Angel of protection (though it is important to acknowledge that each of us is born with our Angel of guidance). You can call on Archangel Michael to use his sword to sever any negative forms that may have their hooks in you. Doreen Virtue has some wonderful meditations on YouTube with this purpose in mind. Michael, will even, if asked create a protective bubble around you. Yet as mentioned previously, you must have internal protection and a shield wall between yourself and the negativity.
There are several ways of constructing internal protection for Light workers. One of which is meditating to activate your contact with source.
This involves connecting with your heart chakra, sending energy down through your chakra, through the earth, to the earths core, and drawing this energy back up and to your heart. You then envision the light of source descending through your crown chakra, third eye and throat chakra, to rest in your heart. Then you open your heart chakra further still, allow both energies to mingle and pour through and out of you as rainbow colored light. Once your body and aura are saturated with this light, you then draw and hold the energy, back, to self.
You then ask an Angel to “watch your back” so to speak.
So please check out Doreen on this subject, she has some great meditations on YouTube. I have also included a link to a meditation I enjoyed and felt was helpful.
    Protection Witches and Wicca
Be you Solitary Witch or Wicca, your creed or craft type is going to decide your protection. Once again I stress the three forms of protection. So Internal, God or Goddess invocation, or sacred flame (though to be sure the sacred flame may be used across beliefs).
Perhaps salt rings for outer protection around your dwelling, as well as the White Light bubble. And I would certainly set a mirror wall between you and the direction of any negative influence. Also let us not forget the power of Amulets and spells.
heart chakra     Conclusion
The essence of what I am suggesting here is:  As you begin to become aware of how your thoughts and feelings are creating your reality, you are going to notice the effects of other people upon your thoughts and feelings.
You are going to want to stop others from having influence.
You are going to want to maintain your own high vibration.
In order to do this, you will need to create protection or remove certain influences from your sphere, until such time as you can deal with them, whereby they no longer affect you in the same way.
Decide upon the protection methods you would use, according to what you know and how you feel.

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

Conscious Creation,  Manifestation 

Buzz Words, Of the  21st Century.

As Spiritual people it can be incredibly hard to think of ourselves as “Money Makers”. When we see these words the tendency can be to think of “Get Rich Quick” schemes.

Or worse still…Money is not Spiritual. We’d love to change the world. Yet how can we when the very tool that makes this possible, is the tool we abhor.

IF YOU ARE ALREADY FEELING UNCOMFORTABLE!

GREAT!!!

I AM ABOUT TO CHALLENGE NOTIONS OF REALITY.

We are willing to accept magical principles of intent and will when it comes to “World Peace” or a “Green Earth”. Yet “Money for Spirit”,

NO WAY!!!

We need to change…Who would you rather see in control of World Resources. Rigid Policy Makers or Heart Centered Healers?

There is so much information out there.

Especially on “Consciously Creating” the “Magic of Manifestation” and “Manifest Abundance” a lot of the time the literature hits you with a hard sell.

The thing is..science has now acknowledged that all of life IS connected…through energy.

But what does it all mean for YOU?

It means that YOU are part of and responsible for, something huge!

Own It

Just as when you flick on a light switch; the current flows and the light goes on…So too YOUR energy.

This energy is flowing regardless of your belief system. It simply is.

Which means, just like the switch, You control the energy.

Do you want that control to be CONSCIOUS, or unconscious, remember, energy is flowing around and through you anyway.

Thoughts have an effect, words have an effect…yet it is our FEELINGS that induce the largest electrical charges within our brain. When you start to control your thoughts…and the feelings behind them, you have a measurable effect on the world.

This is “Conscious Creation”…it is the tool of “Magical Manifestation” and the way of “Manifesting Abundance.

Over the next Six weeks I’m going to look closely at what is meant by “Conscious Creation”. In particular how you can put this to work, for YOU incorporating you spiritual path.
