CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Your Body Is Smarter Than You Think”

The human body is a temple of thoughts. It has the wisdom of its own.

For centuries, healers have pondered the connection between mental and physical health. In recent years, science has begun to recognize the powerful connections through which emotional, spiritual, and behavioral factors can directly affect health outcomes.

As research in the field of mind-body medicine is finding, emotions and thought patterns can contribute to imbalances within the body, and therapies like hypnosis, visual imagery, meditation, and yoga are being used to re-establish balance and promote health. The mind and body connection happens on both a physical and chemical level.

The brain is the hardware that allows you to experience mental states that are labeled the “mind.” This concept of the “mind” encompasses mental states including thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, and emotions. Different mental states can positively or negatively affect biological functioning.

The human body is a temple of thoughts. It has the wisdom of its own. There are a lot of positive energies that run through our body and a person should channelize those energies for effective results. Meditation is the best way to keep our minds focused and it also helps in maintaining an effective connection between the mind and the body, helping us to act prudently.

Meditation isn’t about becoming a different person, a new person, or even a better person. It’s about training in awareness and getting a healthy sense of perspective. It is about not trying to turn off the thoughts or feelings. Through meditation, a person learns to observe them without judgment.

And eventually, he might start to better understand them as well. Meditation is of several types and the correct one should be chosen depending on the type, habits, and nature of the person who will be meditating.

The different types are Loving-kindness meditation, Body scan or progressive relaxation, Mindfulness meditation, Breath awareness meditation, Kundalini yoga, Zen meditation, Transcendental meditation.

In order to establish a good connection between the mind and the body, a person should be able to listen to his body. In order to do that, one must be a good listener and must be very patient.

The use of hot water is a very effective tool which helps in relaxing the mind so that a person can pay attention to his body. Discussed below are a few things that can be under a shower which will help a person to listen to the wisdom of the body.

When you are under the shower, try to close your eyes and feel the hot water running down your body. Keep yourself calm and don’t let other thoughts disturb you. Focus on the sensation of your body. Use your hands and massage your body a little to make it feel better.

After a long hard working day, you must be exhausted. While under the shower try to find the part of your body which aches the most. Try and concentrate on soothing that part of your body, leaving out all the rest.

For better results use some lotion or oil on that area. It helps in increasing the sensation. In the end, ask that part of your body that what does it want you to know.

Hot water helps in relaxing the nerves of our body and helps to calm the mind. This, in turn, establishes a good connection between the mind and body.

After the question has been asked, there is a thought, vision or intuition that pops up in the mind. Trust the instincts and follow out the order. This is the first sign that the body is communicating with the mind.

After this, you can either choose to do the same with the other parts of your body that might be troubling you or leave the shower. By repeating this method on a daily basis, you will know how to listen to the wisdom of your body.

MICHELLE WALLING: “19 Things That Can Help With A Spontaneous Awakening”

More and more people are having spontaneous spiritual awakenings than ever!  Many are experiencing paranormal or metaphysical experiences that are surprising and are seeking answers about these things.

Many people are awakening to a sudden realization that they are not just a human being or their physical body, but they are spiritual beings having a physical experience on planet Earth.  As we receive waves of love and light energy to the planet, we are receiving a vibrational boost which serves to awaken and cleanse all that is no longer serving this reality.

A spiritual awakening is a life changing event that is prompted by your higher self. Your life may change drastically in order to align you with your highest and best path.  You may lose some friends as well gain new friends. Sudden realizations about relationships in your life can bring about tumultuous emotions.  You may be prompted to change jobs or to move. Be assured that your life will never be the same and that you are in for a glorious peek behind the veil that some people in your life will not understand.

Here are some more spontaneous experiences that have been reported with a sudden awakening:

  • Uncomfortable physical “ascension” symptoms
  • OBE’s (Out of body experiences)
    Huge downloads of information. May see geometric shapes, numbers, colors, light.
  • Extraterrestrial contact or spirit guide contact

As you make your way through these experiences, here are 20 things that can help you shift through a sudden or drastic awakening.

1.  Stay calm and reduce your fears through information and healing. No, you are not going crazy.

2.  Learn to use discernment. Trust your instinct or “gut feelings”.

3.  Forgive yourself and others for everything you think is “wrong”.

4.  Be responsible for how you treat others and for how you are creating your reality.

5.  Assess your diet and lifestyle. Alcohol and drugs cause aura cracks. Research GMO food and chemical additives. Drink plenty of pure, fluoride free water.

6.  Ground with the planet, take frequent baths, breathe deeply and consciously, and meditate. Create your own style of meditation.

7.  Don’t think you have to figure everything out at once. Allow things to unfold rather than trying to control your awakening.

8.  Communicate with like-minded individuals. Contact someone who has an experienced an awakening to discuss the most pressing questions you have. Social media is an awesome tool.

9.  Research spiritual awakening online to find information that will help you (while using discernment and taking only what resonates). Follow the breadcrumbs by being led to certain articles or videos.

10.  Connect with your higher self/guides to ask for help in certain areas that may seem overwhelming.

11.  Make notes about what you experience, including your dreams.

12.  Research alternative healing methods such as crystals, Reiki, acupuncture, EFT, etc.

13.  Move the body- walk, swim, yoga, tai chi, etc.

14.  Move your awareness from your head to your heart. Don’t get caught up in overthinking.

15.  Allow rest and self care. Spend time alone if you need to.

16.  Watch for synchronicities and number repetitions. These let you know you are on the right path.

17.  Allow emotions to flow through you/do not block or suppress.

18. Become the conscious observer of your life and get out of victim mode.

19.  Remove toxic relationships and situations from your life.

(20).  Continue to raise your vibration.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Meeting Your Higher Self And Asking For Help”

Have you met your Higher Self?  Have you even tried to reconnect with it?

Yes, we have reached a point of time where all of us are somehow aware about the concept of Higher Self but not all of us have met our Higher Self or had a conversation with it.

So, your Higher Self is what you really are which is obviously so much more than your corporeal form.  Your Higher Self knows so much about you that even you aren’t aware about.  Thus, it is obvious that conversations with your Higher Self are going to be far more productive than you can imagine.  These conversations can actually make you so much more than what you think you will become because these conversations will fill you with positivity and happiness.

You have to remember that you are always connected to your Higher Self.  Yes, you can talk to it anytime you want because the bond you share with it is of unity; it’s basically a part of you.  So, we feel that we are separated from our Higher Self but that is not the truth.  Separation of such a kind can never ever exist.  All that you have to accept is that you have far more energy than your physical being and thus you will experience far more than just what you experience physically.

So why should you listen to your Higher Self?

Because it is always, always there to help you.  Whenever you feel that your intuition is telling you something, the truth is that your Higher Self is trying to talk to you. Listen to it, keenly.

How Does the Higher Self Communicate?

It does through your intuition or through the random signs and symbols that you may see here and there.  Don’t dismiss these just like that. They have a meaning that you must try to comprehend.

All you have to do now is to take your Higher Self on a date…

To go on a date with your Higher Self, imagine yourself to be in a peaceful place; someplace where you are happy and comfortable.  Now, try and feel the presence of your Higher Self.  Once you feel it, talk to your Higher Self.  Ask anything, don’t worry the Higher Self won’t judge you or bother you.

Once you have asked the questions, wait for the answers.  The Higher Self might use various methods like images and feelings and words; just pay attention to the answers.

Sometimes, you may have to distinguish between your Ego and your Higher Self. In order to do that, you have to see yourself when the answers come.  If you feel any anxiety or stress, then you are talking to your ego because the ego is attached to the feeling of pain.  Ego creates a feeling of negativity through creating and appropriating some sort of identity.  The Higher Self doesn’t do this.  There is no identity in the Higher Self situation.  It is just boundless and abundant, overflowing energy.

You can also try to ask more yes/ no questions because such questions go beyond the functioning of the mind and are answered by the Higher Self.

You can also try and use Journaling.  When we journal, we can distinguish between the noise of the mind and the things that the Higher Self says.

So, it is time to sit and chat with your Higher Self.  You will probably end up finding something about yourself that you never knew existed.
