LISA RENEE (Energetic Synthesis): “Exercising an Open Mind”

galaxieswithin

Neuroplasticity, also known as brain plasticity (flexibility), is an umbrella term that encompasses both synaptic flexibility (the connection of neurons) and non-synaptic flexibility (modification of action potential) to strengthen or change neuron synaptic signaling.  Plasticity or flexibility in the brain affects the strength and action of neural connections and pathways.  Synaptic flexibility plays a large role in a person’s ability to activate higher learning and access memory functions in the brain.

This also refers to changes made in neural pathways and synapses due to changes in a person’s behavior, environment, neural processes, thinking, emotions, as well as changes resulting from shifts in consciousness.  Substantial changes made in thinking and in responding to various forms of stimuli can profoundly alter the pattern of neuronal activation in response to the way a person experiences or perceives reality.

This means that our direct experiences do change both the brain’s physical structure (anatomy) and functional organization (physiology).

The brain can and does change or strengthen in response to the variety of levels we choose to perceive and think about in our experiences and other types of perceptions.  If we grow mentally rigid, this leads to hardening our heart and becoming extremely inflexible in our thinking, especially as we grow older.  The structure of our brains can be changed by what we focus our attention upon and what we choose to give value to as priority.

Thus, our brain learns by experience and is fully capable of re-programming itself to turn on synapses and increase neuronal activity, by strengthening the brain flexibility through open mindedness.

Being open-minded means being receptive to new ideas, knowledge and being adaptable to change.  Open-mindedness also relates to the way in which people approach the views and knowledge of others.  When we are open-minded we know that others should be free to express their views and that the value of others knowledge should be recognized.  When we are not threatened or scared by others point of view, our body and brain stays open, receptive and relaxed.  We seek to have dialogues and maintain a free information society that shares knowledge with humanitarian goals.  Our goal is to stay mentally open and mentally flexible with an empathic, loving and compassionate heart, and to allow other people to speak what they believe without instigating or condoning violence.  Here are some suggestions on keeping an open and flexible mind, which is crucial to keep ones heart open.  Remember an open mind equals an open heart.

Prayer and Meditation

Prayer and Meditation connect us to higher intelligence and have positive impacts on calming our mind.  Prayer focuses on positive emotions like love, gratitude and Compassion, which allow goodness in our lives and the lives of those we pray for.  Meditation reduces anxiety, stress, and depression, which helps us to find and connect to peaceful states.  Being mindful improves our mental flexibility, brain elasticity and keeps neurons active.  Spiritually centering ourselves on peace, prayer and contemplation of God/Universe, helps us maintain our trust in life, faith, and relaxes every part of the body.

Gratitude

Keep reinforcing the positive things that you have in your life right now.  Feel and express gratitude for the people, things, and experiences that are positive or have a silver lining for higher learning.  Reinforce one’s commitment to expressing love, goodness and gratitude, and to behave as ethically as Christ would.

Better Understand other People

It may be helpful to practice listening to perspectives different from our own, and to allow other people to challenge and stimulate our ways of thinking.  We have an incredible array of languages, cultures, and belief systems that define a variety of viewpoints on the earth.  When we are able to understand other people through their viewpoint, we are more empathic to them.  We can understand how they may feel.  This helps us to have compassion for people and not group them into statistics, countries, religions or some other classification system.  When we classify people, we start to disassociate from the fact they are human beings, our brothers and sisters that have a right to live upon this earth peacefully.

Learn Something New

Learn how to think and explore your own learning patterns by giving yourself time and space for reflection.  Notice how we are constantly bombarded by external forms of distraction.  Our creative minds may need to stay sequestered from the formulas given by society, and to seek answers in the most unpredictable places, or within the silence of meditation.  Do not be afraid to learn something new that requires concentration or be afraid of deeper knowledge of one’s own consciousness.  Stay informed and awake, be willing to see the things going on around you.  Being interested in higher learning expands one’s mind and consciousness.

Trust Yourself

Be aware that poor Self Esteem and lack of trust in our own abilities to learn and problem solve, will close our mind and harden our heart.  Do not feel intimidated by knowledge, competence or other people that criticize to shut you down.  Knowing that you are a worthy, valued and loved person, stay strong to build core self-esteem and self-efficiency, knowing that you can depend on yourself if the going gets rough.  Most of the fears we dwell on never come to pass.  As you focus on building the right relationship to self-acceptance and self-love, this builds trust and confidence in oneself.  Building trust in oneself and building trust with God are the only two relationships that we really need!  With those two relationships and ego surrender, all else will fall into place.

Forgiveness

To forgive another person or circumstances is the most generous thing one can do for oneself.  When we forgive others for perceived transgressions it frees us from the bonds, entanglements and cords, which manifest painful patterns such as judgments, resentments, and anger.  When we are angry it is a very destructive emotion that increases anxiety, harms our brain and closes our heart.  Forgiving yourself from being angry is the most important action one can take in clearing self-sabotaging bonds of victimhood.  Understanding the importance of forgiveness is that it brings you to the current state of now, rather than dwelling on past hurts and pain.  This is incredibly positive for reaching states of open mindedness and freer thinking to progress forward.

Stay Aware of Balance

Know that you are a multidimensional spiritual being with a body, mind, emotions and spirit.  What areas of your multidimensional being require more attention?  Keeping an open mind requires that we keep growing our self-awareness and consciousness, keep developing new interests, and remain receptive to new activities and ideas.  Yet, there are times we require rest, relaxation and have to let it all go in mental stillness.  Thus, as a balanced and healthy person we must try to move in and out of each state of rest and activity, in order to receive the positive benefits of both.

Sovereignty of Brain and Nervous System

Open your 12D Shield. Stabilize in your core and open a vortex field if that is part of your practice.  Feel free to call upon Krystal Star Guardians or guiding beings allied with your Divine Purpose.  Once your shield and core feel as stabilized as you can get them, speak to your body, brain and nervous system these words: My body, I speak to you as an intelligence and I speak to you with Love.  I am in charge of our God Sovereign Freedom and nothing will compromise this.  I will take care of you with all of my heart!  (Take a moment to feel this connection come alive.  Then say the following.)

  • I now command my Brain and Central Nervous System:
  • I Accept only messages that are truthful and organic to my highest consciousness in Christ.
  • I Accept only messages that support my higher good and Divine Blueprint in God Sovereign Freedom.
  • I Permit only that which supports my highest good and Divine Sovereign Purpose to Serve my God-Self.
  • I eliminate all messages that are inorganic or are harmful artificial intelligence, now.
  • Any inorganic intrusive or artificial messages, scripts or impulses are evicted and forbidden now.

As I am God Sovereign and Free, this I decree with all of my heart, mind and might to serve my God Self.  Beloved Body, thank you and so IT IS.  I seal and end my connection with love and gratitude.  Thank you!

LJ VANIER: “11 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently”

PresenceofGaia_Josephine Wall_jpegHow many times have kicked yourself for not following your inner voice, your inner ear or just trusting your gut? How many times have you said to yourself “I knew I shouldn’t have done that!!”… and how many times have you paid for it later? If you’re anything like me, you could say a lot.And then there are those people who just seem to have it all figured out, well at least, for the most part. They seem to have that extra sense. They’re tuned in and locked on and life seems to flow more naturally for them.

7e49529664b7248c68e296a63bc36a85-e1466106361976-636x381Yes, they can be aggravating for those of us who don’t always see the world quite so clearly.

Or for those of us who know the path, but just can’t seem to put one foot in front of the other and follow it with what appears to be blind faith. Many of us are still so accustomed to more logical and rational (right brain) thinking that we block out our own intuitive knowing of what we should do, making the more safe play in many of life’s circumstances.

There is one major difference that separates highly intuitive people with everyone else, and the difference is trust. Highly intuitive people know how to trust themselves.

They have an internal knowing that they don’t need to muddy and meddle with things in life. In fact, they understand that the more they interfere, the more they become a hindrance in the natural unfolding of life’s journey. It’s the way of no way so to speak, and through it, we find that life will always align itself with the experiences we need to find fulfillment.

11. Their Partners

A highly intuitive person chooses their partner not by looks, physique, material possessions or any other ego driven persona. An intuitive person looks deeper. Equipped with a built-in radar that pierces beyond to find what rests in their potential mates heart.

Quite often you will hear a highly intuitive person say that they chose their partner above all else because he/she “has a good heart”.

10. Their Careers

shutterstock_203246677A highly intuitive person will not choose one career over another because of a larger salary.

When faced with career decisions, they will choose the place of work where they feel the most connected to those around them.

They seek vibrational alignment and mutual understanding with their coworkers.

They want to work and create with those that bring them happiness and fulfilment.

9. Their Passions

Highly intuitive people almost always have a passion or a calling. They can’t help but be creative as their intuition breeds creativity, building upon each other. Creativity is always beckoning for an outlet and the more in tune we are, the more we are need of one!

8. Where They Live

Highly intuitive people require solitude and lots of it in order to rebalance and recharge.

Alike to empaths, highly intuitive people are aware of the energy around them at all times and are very observant. In tight living quarters, they are able to feel the energy of others and will quite often scope out their surroundings before signing any kind of long-term deal. Intuitives prefer living along side bodies of water, or wide open green spaces and when they can’t get their fill of the forest, they will bring nature to them, literally.

7. Their Friends

shutterstock_12314449Intuitives know themselves very well and by this wisdom attained they understand others on a deeper level than most. Intuitives will keep their circles small but are known to be very likeable and approachable to others.

Highly intuitive people are often drawn to friendships that will encourage their own personal growth and seek those who can match their level emotionally by mirroring themselves in order to illuminate the hidden aspects of their shadow.

Highly intuitive people will have learned hard lessons in friendships and will have lost many along the journey, all the while knowing that each served as a stepping stone in their soul progression. Intuitives aren’t afraid of these relationships and are thankful for the lessons they bring.

6. Their Body

I eat what I want…. when I want!

Intuitives are known to be ‘snackers’ and they listen to what their body needs in order to function at an optimal level. They know that great energy flow begins with taking care of your body first and intuitives know how to listen.

5. Their Goals

“My goal is not to be better than anyone else, but better than I used to be” -Wayne Dyer

shutterstock_199696376Highly intuitive people are not usually highly competitive or in constant competition with others.

They tend to measure their success by looking back to see what they have learnedand how far they have come.

4. What They Value

“More people would learn from their mistakes if they weren’t so busy denying them” -Harold J Smith.

Above all else highly intuitive people value honesty. They understand that every single person on this entire earth is here to learn and evolve and they appreciate those who can own up to their own faults. They highly value wisdom attained and understand that wisdom can come from hard lessons.

3. Their Activities

shutterstock_335742965

A highly intuitive person will naturally engage in activities that will balance their energy.

They will be automatically be drawn to what they feel is ‘out of sync’ and will seek to rebalance themselves as soon as possible.

This will typically occur without a conscious thought process as they find themselves sporadically participating in outdoor activity, a yoga class, gardening, clay moulding, painting, reading, writing, meditating, or simply listening to music.

2. Synchronicities

From an outsiders perspective, a highly intuitive person can be viewed as someone who is quick to draw conclusions or someone that is always looking for meaning even in the smallest of synchronicity. But to the perceptive one, a highly intuitive person understands that life is created by our own imaginations. Our thoughts create our reality, and our energy attracts our experience.

A highly intuitive person will quite often notice these meaningful coincidences through rapid thought manifestation and signs from the universe by way of symbolism.

1. Their Dreams

A highly intuitive person understands that dreams are the gateway to understanding themselves better. As it is only by knowing ourselves that we can truly become the masters of our reality.

dreamThrough our dream state we explore our own emotional depths, we work out problems to every-day life situations, and we connect to a higher level of consciousness where we gain insight on our own soul called journey, life purpose and collective evolution.

Highly intuitive people may regularly look to dream interpretation in order to decipher symbolism and may even keep a dream journal.

So how intuitive are you?

You may have noticed by this list, that the purpose of this article is to illustrate that we are all highly intuitive, but only if we choose to be. We all have an inner voice, and we can choose to listen to it or choose to ignore it. Each time you ignore it however, life becomes a little more difficult. The path becomes a little more steep and little less clear.

So choose to listen. Choose to trust yourself and choose to always follow your heart. May your journey always be guided.

ALEXA PELLEGRINI: “Be Simple: 6 Philosophies For a Stress-Free Existence”

Stress-Free

In our fast-paced society, getting a breather is almost impossible — even when you are struggling for air. Today is the day to throw yourself a lifeline and recognize this simple truth: stress is created within the root of the mind. Believe it or not, you can re-frame your thinking and take back control from your stress. Infuse these 6 philosophies into your daily routine to achieve a blissful, stress-free life.

1: Release Your Control

Everything in the Universe has a natural order. By honoring this balance, you are one step closer to achieving a stress-free lifestyle. When you take excessive control over your life or the lives of others, you are creating an imbalance in your environment that may cause tension, irritability and damaged relationships. An overwhelming desire for control stems from an inability to trust yourself and your ability to face life’s challenges. Trusting yourself allows you to gain the confidence to have faith in others and accept the unknown. When you recognize the Universe’s powerful ability to realign what is out of order, the anxiety of yesterday will become a distant memory.

Stress-Fress

2: Appreciate the Simple Things

We live in a chaotic world filled with stress that we create. When we overemphasize the material, we lose touch with some of the simple, beautiful things life has to offer: observing nature, indulging in laughter, the joy of good food and connecting with loved ones, to name only a few. By reconnecting with life’s simple foundations, you will find your center and naturally attract abundance. Remove yourself from the ‘Matrix’ of unnecessary stress created by society — call an old friend, watch a comedy, take a walk and infuse love into the food you cook.

3: Observe the Long-term Horizon

When we are stressed, we may fail to observe the long-term horizon and focus instead on the chaos of the present moment. In order to combat anxiety, it is important to observe life on a long-term scale. Imagine yourself in this moment several years from now. Will you be the same person, struggling with the same stress? Taking a moment to consider the future will eliminate irrational thinking. Life evolves, and so will you — and your stress! Your struggle is temporary, and there is a solution.

Stress-Fress

4: Meditate on Prosperity

Visualization is key to manifestation. Money is a common source of stress, but simply meditating on prosperity can relieve unnecessary woes. Each day, take a moment to meditate on money as an energy — visualize your body as a magnet that attracts money to it! Worry is just as problematic as greed. Financial fears create an imbalance deep within the self, perpetuating the subconscious idea that money is abstract and powerful. Recognize money as an accessible energy that exists around you. Easing financial stress is as easy as meditating on the fact that you deserve the money you need.

5: Love Who You Are

The energy we release is returned to us in a mirror-like effect. If you find yourself stricken with low self-esteem, this negative energy is expelled into your environment and prevents you from getting the respect and happiness you deserve. Loving yourself yields a stress-free existence — imagine how simple life could be if you made peace with yourself! Encourage yourself with positive self-talk and take care of yourself – get enough sleep and decompress by doing activities you enjoy. Above all, never place conditions of happiness on ‘if’ statements. ‘If I lose 10 pounds, then I will be happy’ is an excellent example of a statement that can create unnecessary stress in your life.

Stress-Fress

6: Embrace the Change

When life throws us a curve ball, our first instinct may be to resist the change and cling to what is familiar. Ironically, this worsens stress — resisting change is akin to trying to push against a brick wall! The Universe brings us change as a gift, yet we see the gift of change as a problem or something to fear. When you embrace change in your life, your stress will diminish as you accept that everything must evolve in order to grow, including yourself. When you encounter feelings of anxiety about change, remember that even the most difficult of changes have an underlying gift.

LISSA RANKIN: “8 Signs You’ve Lost Touch with Your Intuition”

thought

There’s a lot of buzz about the benefits of tuning into your intuition. We know that intuition helps us make spiritually aligned decisions, protects us from danger, acts as our inner doctor, gives us the heads up when we are needed by our loved ones, and serves as the unseen world’s secret gateway to the human world, helping us live our best lives. But how do you know if you’re tuned in or not? We all have the capacity to listen to our intuition, but sometimes we’re at the mercy of forces that block our ability to interpret our intuition clearly. Here are eight signs that your intuition may be blocked.

1. You feel confused often.

If you struggle to make good decisions and often lack clarity, this is a surefire sign that you’re not tuned into your intuition. When you and your intuition are communicating regularly, you’ll find that a combination of your inner knowing and outer synchronicities team up to help you make the aligned decision that steers you towards the highest good for all.

2. You lack flexibility.

When you’re following your intuition, you have to be willing to go with the flow, which sometimes means changing your plans based on the guidance you’re getting. When you’re out of touch with your intuition, you may be so rigidly tied to a calendar that you ignore all the warning signs that tell you it’s time to cancel a commitment. I’m not suggesting that intuitive people must be complete flakes. Keeping your commitments is a sign of respect and responsibility. But sometimes intuition requires you to say “no” when you previously said “yes.” When you’re really tuned in, this happens less, because you tend to intuit the “no” from the beginning.

3. You feel blindsided by people.

You trusted him. You trusted her. He was your lover. She was your best friend. Then they slept together. OUCH! What happened? When you’re not tuned into your intuition, you may feel blindsided, as if you never saw betrayal coming. But often, all of your friends saw it coming a mile away. Intuition gives you red flags that warn you, but if you insist on only seeing the best in people while blinding yourself to their shadow, you may be blocking your inner knowing.

4. You wrestle with regret.

Intuition helps you make regret-free decisions, because intuition is always doing its best to guide you in the direction of the greatest flow, ease, integrity, and alignment with your soul’s unique journey. When you’re out of touch with intuition, you’re making decisions from your mind or your ego, and regret is a common side effect.

5. You tend to be a chameleon.

If you can chameleon yourself to be like the jocks when the game is on, like your business partners during the board meeting, like the church goers on Sunday morning, like the committed parents at the PTA meeting, like the country club socialites at the local fundraiser, like the yoga devotees at yoga class, and like the party girl on Friday night, you may not be fully tuned into your intuition. It’s not that you can’t switch hats and fit into many circles; it’s that when you’re following your intuition, there are no masks to wear, no personas to put on like t-shirts. You’re ALL YOU, ALL THE TIME, and you’re unapologetic about it. So that might mean you wear your game day shirt to the yoga class, you get down with your bad self at the country club fundraiser, and you skip the PTA meeting because the sun is shining and the beach is calling you to bask in its beauty.

6. You dismiss your instincts as “crazy” or “irrational.”

Intuition rarely feels rational. One day I was at the mall, and my intuition told me to walk into the Gap. Now no offense to Gap lovers, but I don’t like the Gap. I never shop there. So I could have easily dismissed my intuition. But I’ve learned that things don’t go well when I ignore a strong hit, so I walked in the Gap just as someone was having a Code Blue. I’m a doctor, so something in the unseen realm was telling me my services were needed, and I’m grateful to have been used as an instrument of love. If you ignore the seemingly crazy guidance, you will not only fail to let yourself be led to the most aligned jobs, relationships, and transformative experiences; you also might miss out on the chance to be someone else’s miracle. (PS. The woman whose heart stopped is alive and well.)

 7. You doubt yourself.

I never trust people who tell me their intuition is perfect. I think it’s always wise to put a question mark behind something you believe you’re intuiting. Discernment is key when it comes to tuning into spiritual guidance. But with that disclaimer, I can assure you that when you’re tuned into your intuition, you experience much less self doubt. It’s not that you don’t filter the intuitive guidance that comes in. Blind faith in intuition can get you in trouble. But over time, as you confirm how things went when you followed your intuition, you’ll develop evidence-based faith. You’ll know that seemingly miraculous things happen when you follow your intuitive guidance, and you’ll learn to trust it, which fills you with a certain confidence, leaving you with far less self-doubt.

8. You give your power away too easily.

When you’re not tuned into intuition, you’re far more likely to expect someone else to make all of your decisions, even the most critical ones. As a doctor, I saw this all the time in the hospital. A patient who is not tuned into intuition will expect the doctor to make every decision, giving all her power away. Whereas someone who is tuned into intuition might question the doctor, sharing an intuitive hit like “I sense that surgery will harm me and we’re better off watching and waiting.” Or the intuitive person might instantly sense what lies at the root cause of her illness, trusting that if she treats the root cause, conventional treatment might be avoided.

This ability to tune into intuition is the third of the 6 Steps to Healing yourself, which I teach in my new Mind Body Green video course Getting Back to 100% (you can watch the trailer here). I put my heart into creating this program for patients facing a chronic illness, caregivers of someone who is sick, and as well as the health care providers, healers, therapist, and coaches who assist people with physical or mental illnesses.

Check yourself. Tune in. Are you paying attention to your intuitive knowing?

Love,
