HeartTreeImageYou want to hear your intuition. You wish that the NOISE in your mind would shut up. You believe whole-heartedly that if your mind would be quiet that you would FINALLY be able to hear your inner voice.

You’ve read what many people say about listening to the inner voice, about hearing inner guidance, and it seems that the ideal internal environment is inner quiet.

The goal – the absence of noise, a reduction in the “traffic” of the mind, a silencing of the negative voices, the self-criticism, the second-guessing, and the undermining monologue. You feel harassed by these internal voices. You crave inner quiet.

Attempts to find inner quiet result in an increase in the heart beat, tension in the body, frustration, a jerky inner world instead of inner peace, a feeling that the internal monkeys are shaking the cage of your mind until the bolts shake loose.

The belief is that without inner quiet we will not hear our intuition. Is this true? What does your body say to you? Is there a tightening or a feeling of opening? What do you notice in the body?

When we consult our body it communicates to us through bodily sensations.

We “feel” our inner yes and no. The tightening in the body communicates a clear “no”, and the open & relaxed feeling in the body communicates a “yes”.

Often when we intend to access our intuition we focus too much on the activity of the mind forgetting that the information that guides and informs us is physically communicated through the body.

The mind will protest, but the body gives us clear signals. Even when there is a lot of mind noise, our intuitive guidance is right there waiting if we are ready to start asking questions and noticing through the bodies communication the answers.

There is not an absence of communication. When we direct our attention to the body, despite the lack of inner quiet, we “hear” what our intuition is saying to us.

FeelingsSupressedIn our culture we grow up censoring the way that we talk. For those of us who feel deeply, it can be a challenge to traverse a culture that judges people who feel deeply.

Have you ever been told you are too sensitive? Have you been told you are too emotional? Have you been told you need to reign it in and get a grip? Have you been told you are exaggerating? Have you been told that you are misunderstanding the situation?

A lot of people have spent their lives being told they don’t have a right to their feelings, that in some way they need to change how they feel. I don’t really think that that is possible. Your emotions are your emotions, period. That is not to say that within an emotional response there isn’t room for change. Often a strong emotional response is the mind-body communicating something to you, that something does need to change, shift and transform, but to clamp down on it and deny it completely creates disharmony rather than allowing the real issue to be revealed.

This habitual pattern of keeping your feelings to yourself stifles the expression of the true you, the juicy essence of who you are, your mojo. Once we start controlling the way that we are perceived, which pretty much all of us do from an early age, it makes it difficult to get truly connected to your mojo, to the way that you want to express yourself in this life.

Getting reconnected to our emotions, getting greater understanding of how we feel, why we feel, what helps to balance us when emotions do envelop us and we feel like we can’t escape. Finding the personal flow of expressing yourself and letting your emotions be what they are without needing to express them is a fine art, and one that can take a lifetime to refine.

With more insight into how we feel and finding that place of ease in expressing our feelings naturally creates greater ease in our relationships. When we over-control our emotions and tell ourselves we are stupid for how we feel, we establish a pattern of keeping our thoughts to ourselves. Despite an overwhelming feeling of wanting to tell someone how we feel, we keep the words locked up in the throat. The words are like ripe fruit, and even though you know the time is right to say something, to share your thoughts, because you have been told you don’t have a right to your opinion, you don’t share your feelings. The moment passes and the words become rotten or spoiled, and you just have to let them go, unspoken.

The truth is that you aren’t too sensitive, you aren’t too emotional, because there is no such thing. You are just a human being who experiences the world in an emotional way. People do want to hear what you have to say, so don’t let your words become like rotten fruit. Be present and connected to yourself when you express yourself, but allow your emotional mojo flow!

image_SW_BeachA lot of people are freaked out by the nowness of being, of being in the now, of being connected to the moment so intimately that you can feel the ripples.

The nowness feels big and scary, connecting us to the unknown realm.

When we have been living our life most of the time very disconnected from the now, to be dropped into the present moment can feel like a shock.

Listening to Eckhart Tolle talk during the audio from his book “The Power of Now”, or in his teachings, he takes us into the now. The long pauses before he begins talking leave you hanging on the ledge of nowness, hovering, waiting for his next word. By listening to his teachings you are present to yourself and to his words, you are connected to your body-mind-spirit.

Being present, being in your body, being in the now takes practice to get comfortable with.

It’s important to come to some sort of peace with our tendency to freak out or feel stressed out by being in the present moment. Are you one of the people beating yourself up because you are not able to find the zen-place? You wish that you could find the zen-place, but it is so bloody intimidating. Coming into them moment feels like a car that is driving 60 miles and hour and suddenly comes to a stop by slamming on the brakes.

Realistically the body-mind-spirit feels jarred; it needs time and a period of adjustment to slow down before coming into the moment. It’s much easier to be in the now if our day has not been crazy, hectic, and discombobulated. Being in the now starts with slowing down and creating opportunities to practice being in the now.

Mindful Mojo Tip: Spend the next week consciously slowing down during the day. Notice how fast you are going and imagine that you are a car. How fast are you going? Can you slow yourself down by 10 miles, 20 miles, even 30 miles? Slow down and notice how the body feels. Let yourself breathe in, breathe out. Take your attention into your body, releasing how much attention you are paying to the outside world. Let your energy return to you; reclaim your energy.

Mindfulness experiences: Share your experiences. Hit “reply” to this email to share your thoughts. It is great to hear what has worked for you, and what hasn’t worked. Our life is a work in progress, particularly on the mindfulness path. We are all learning!

Here are three quick and (hopefully!) easy ways to clear out emotional gunk and raise your vibration! Seriously, it is a clunky month this month with two eclipses, old patterns rising up “sharply” ready to be released, and we need some TOOLS to get back to the Zen place, pronto!

* Love Vibration – Love energy is a universal healer so if you are new to the world of mindfulness, healing and energy, think about love energy and notice how it feels in your body. Intending to let love energy flow through the body clears the energy of darker, denser emotions. A master healer, love automatically raises your vibration increasing manifestation abilities and your ability to connect with higher realms.

* Heart Connection – sometimes we get emotionally thrown off balance by others opinions, expectations and judgments, consumed with feeling not good enough. Find your way back to your inner truth by connecting to the heart center, and releasing attachment to a need to “be” anything for others. Get aligned with what is right for you!

* Smokey Quartz – is a stone of protection which cleanses and clears negative energy. I find it grounding and energizing at same time. Love using this crystal in conjunction with my Lemurian quartz crystal which is a great crystal to increase your psychic skills.

P.S. You like the crystal grid in the image?? I think we might need to get some crystal grid mojo flowing in future newsletters. Send me an email to andrea@alingasky.com and share any pictures you have of grids you have going, and I will create a montage of people’s grids! I would LOVE to see them. Share the crystal love. FUN!!!

andreaHi there!! Just to say, I am really, really happy to be back. I have been on an unintentional hiatus! You know, the type where you only have the energy to deal with what life is putting in front of you, and no more. Sometimes personal challenges require more energy than you have. Simplifying often is the only way to deal with it. Hence, the unintentional hiatus! BUT, so happy to be back chatting about healing, crystals, reiki and how to tap into your intuition!

Have you been exposed to extensive blame from people are in pain, emotional, spiritual or physical, blame that is irrational and doesn’t make a lot of sense?

We want to support those in pain but, how do we avoid being subjected to the projected frustrations of others?

The truth is, your pain is not my responsibility! There is much frustration when we feel pain, and we WANT it to be somebody else’s fault.

SOMEONE must be to blame for the pain that we feel.

A lack of ownership for your life can lead to a need to project your pain onto those around you without accountability.

When we don’t take ownership for our life, and pain is dominant, how do we find our way back to ourselves? Many stay lost and disconnected from their body for a long, long time. This is the opposite of healing.

I liked this excerpt from “The Thirteen Original Clan Mothers”!

“The Legacy of Woman does not have to include the former hurts that have set woman against woman, women against men, or caused women to destroy themselves through sabotage….there is no need to get involved with the high drama and pettiness that has kept us from achieving human harmony when we are busy working on becoming our personal visions.”

“Self-esteem is reclaimed when the feminine principle of nurturing the Self is practiced, instead of expecting our sense of wholeness to come from our relationship to another person. When we care enough for ourselves to take the time we need to give to the Self, we will feel complete.”

It is women, it is men, it is a pattern we have with our children. Wholeness, connection to personal truth, and the ability to nourish ourself helps us to have greater clarity and shift blame patterns. When the focus is on yourself, we can heal and transform the pattern of blame and projection.

70_yellowbudspikybluebkgdIntuition restores balance to the whole mind, body and spirit by mediating the relationship between the heart and the mind, neutralizing negative mind projections which are fueled by our doubt and fear, and reconnecting us to our true self.

Our culture is biased toward a logical, mind-driven perspective of life. It is hard not to be enmeshed with this limited view of our life experience. We forget that when we access intuition our natural balance is restored. Accessing intuition is a powerful way to balance your emotions, to clear old thought patterns and reconnect with a vision of the world that the mind cannot fathom.

Here are some of the ways that accessing intuition balances emotions, despite the minds doubts.

  1. When you listen to intuition through the heart center you increase the heart energy field and clear blocked heart energy which stabilizes emotions, increasing your ability to cope with strong emotions.
  2. In accessing intuition you calm the mind to listen to the heart center which reduces monkey-mind tendencies and discombobulated emotions.
  3. Many of us are distracted by the judgments, opinions and expectations of others. Tuning into your deeper instincts and guidance helps you to tune out other peoples energy that is being imposed on you, giving you emotional space.
  4. As you connect to the body more deeply to listen to intuition you become more aware of mental patterns of worry and obsession that take you away from your connection to your true self.
  5. Empaths have a heightened ability to sense the emotions of others. When you learn to tune into your intuition and inner listening more deeply, it helps you to discern what is yours and what is other peoples energy and emotions. Then you can make a choice to separate and clear the energy.
  6. When you have listened for a long time to your mind and denied your deeper instincts this leads to strong negative beliefs about yourself and reduces your self esteem. Listening to your intuition reconnects and strengthens your self belief.
  7. The mind and the ego are in cahoots. They love to control how you live your life. When you are more deeply connected with intuition, the ego is less obnoxious and the mind less dominant.
  8. When you access your intuition you often find lost parts of yourself. In integrating these lost parts you feel more whole, and it balances the grief that you can experience from rejecting different parts of yourself.
  9. We live in a society that gets angry, resentful and uncomfortable when we talk about intuition. When you are afraid to access your intuition because of the responses of others, you put your life direction in the hands of others. When you choose to access your intuition, you reclaim control of the direction of your life.
  10. When you listen to your intuitive nature you get access to information in the form of thoughts, images, body sensations and things that you just know, but don’t have an explanation for. Often the information can be used to help you navigate challenging situations in your life. With deep listening you are able to access alternative solutions to situations that you have felt stuck around. Intuition helps free up stuck emotional energy and limiting behavior patterns.

Like some of you, I blocked my intuition in childhood due pain and trauma. 

I disconnected from my intuition during my dad’s illness, a five year journey with ALS, also called Lou Gehrig’s disease, a devastating neurodegenerative disease that you might remember from the highly publicized ice bucket challenge last year.

I was 12 years old when my dad died and I thought it would be impossible for me to ever be connected to my intuition again. It was just too painful.

I was stuck. I didn’t want to connect to my body. I didn’t like myself. I was VERY intuitive as a child, but I was so angry and sad I couldn’t really utilize it.

In my twenties I found the courage to transform the pain and let my intuition flow. I was angry and afraid on this journey. I had to really work to reconnect with my intuition.

During this time I made MANY discoveries about myself that I did not know. I realized I was able to sense things, thoughts “popped” into my head, and I could see images in my mind. I had great teachers and friends who helped me. I learned how much we need support when reconnecting with intuition.

Sometimes my intuitive impressions made me feel crazy as I felt FLOODED with the emotions of others, which had been part of the problem in childhood. It felt like a burden to be so tuned into others, but I knew that it was who I truly was, and that I needed to reconnect with my intuition.

I continued to work on my intuition all the way through my thirties. With support I built the courage to share my intuitive impressions, learned how to talk about my impressions when working with clients, and how to integrate intuition into every level of my business.

Now I feel far more comfortable with intuition, but remembering that time in childhood when I blocked my intuition is still painful and confusing. For those of us with childhood trauma this adds another layer to the journey of reconnection.

How about you? Did your intuition get shut down in childhood? How did you reconnect those channels?

65_flowerbkgdAnger and fear are often seen as things that get in the way of our intuition. I refer to fear as being something we release to help us get deeper access to intuition, but anger and fear can also be our guides to get more access to intuition.

Facts about intuition:
* Society doesn’t understand what intuition is and how to access intuition, so inherently this makes people suspicious and resistant. What you can’t see shouldn’t be trusted.

* We have all been exposed to this anger and fear around intuition. Historically people have been persecuted for their intuitive & psychic skills.

* If you have been immune to the opinions of others, congrats, but for most of us who are intuitive, we have battened down the hatches at times in order to not make others uncomfortable.

* Blocking our intuition has consequently made US feel uncomfortable, because it is inherently a natural part of who we are, not a strange, weird, thing-to-be-distrusted.

* Often the beliefs of others have been imposed on us making it feel like we are the ones that are uncertain about intuition, triggering fear and anger. The fear and anger aren’t the problem, it is the associated beliefs that are the issue.

* When we explore the beliefs that we have about intuition and how impacts others, we are able to release the fear of the reactions of others.

* Working with our intuition often requires some healing, clearing old beliefs, emotions and energy from the past.

* Our intuition won’t work with us if we have hidden agendas and make ego-driven demands.

* Our intuition is not a performing seal that is there for your amusement, it is a natural part of us that desires respect. It is likely you won’t be able to access your intuition if you are making contrived or frivolous requests.

When we feel fear and anger around our intuition, or around the opinions and judgments that others have of us for being intuitive, it means it is time to spend more time with our intuition, to strengthen the relationship, to work with it, to listen to it, and to honor the guidance that it offers.

Noticing the anger and fear is not the problem. Anger and fear is a symptom of a deeper issue that needs to be worked with, that requires us to work with ourselves in order to build trust with our intuition.

Guess what ???

Photo Dec 14, 3 41 41 PMSelf judgment and the judgment of others is like kryptonite for intuition. Second guessing, doubt, self criticism, criticism from our family and friends (or people who we don’t even know that well) all derails and weakens our connection and trust in our intuition.

Fear is judgments fuel which energizes and expands judgment, whether that is the judgment of others or our own. It activates the mind into a loop of thoughts that relentlessly and sometimes viciously attack the deeper instincts.

Judgment activates inner voices that tell you you are stupid for listening to the inner voice, that there is no validity or proof that the inner voice has anything to offer. For many of us we are thrown off by judgment which can result in a feeling of not being fully connected to the body. It sets up a cycle of anxiety, tension and sometimes depression which people often find hard to disengage from. This is when you know that fear dressed up as judgment is in control.

Although we all have complex personal obstacles to accessing and trusting our intuition, judgment universally derails intuition, and when you are in this cycle the only solution is to take action.

What action is necessary? The solution is self acceptance, facing your fears, and getting reconnected to the body, mind and spirit. When we spend the time to get reconnected through meditation, walking in nature, reiki, use of crystals, yoga or other forms of exercise we are able to feel the presence of our inner voice.

Take a moment to get still and take some deep breaths. Whilst sitting or standing comfortably feel the deep breaths in the body. Connect to the energy flow in the body. Next connect to the energy bubble that is around the body, that extends 1 1/2 to 2 feet around the body. Don’t overthink, just know that it is there. Then put your hand over the heart space, and feel the energy in the heart. When we do this we gain access to our own self acceptance. This is our starting point.

I am super excited to be interviewing Renee Li of Om Wisdom and Wellness. It has been such an honor to witness the process of Renee writing her book! I got such a lot out of reading it, with palpable energy shifts happening as I read it. Noticing the energetic impact it had on me as I witnessed Renee’s personal story added emphasis to the reality that witnessing each others stories truly helps us heal.

If you would like to pick up a copy visit the book website, Peace of the Heart , to read more. And now, here are a few questions that I had for Renee!

Andrea: The story of you losing your sister when you were three and then suppressing the memory is very powerful and painful. Do you have thoughts or advice for people who “think” they have a memory of something that happened in childhood that they don’t know about and how to deal with the “not knowing”? 

Yes, early age memory can be foggy around some traumatic events if it was too overwhelming for our younger selves to cope with. We may not remember what exactly happened but have a sense of it through the energy of suppressed emotions that still reside in our energy body.

For example, someone who was abused as a child may suspect they were abused but can’t pull up any real clear memory as proof to themselves. In these cases, I might recommend practicing self-love as I describe in the book because the energy of self-love will allow the inner child, who had the direct experience with the abuse, to feel a bit safer and supported. Then as the feeling of safety becomes more prevalent for your inner child, the memories around the event can become more clear in the Now adult’s consciousness.

But there are more benefits to practicing self-love than just creating safety and clarity like I have mentioned above. It will also help to resolve the emotions of anger and resentment that have been stored in your cellular memory. These are emotions that the inner child could not express or resolve on his own at that age. The high vibration of self-love uproots those suppressed emotions and releases it from our emotional body. Self-love has the power to transmute negative energy to match its own high vibration. This is actually similar to how energy healing works. When you apply a higher vibration healing energy (like love) to your energy field, things are bound to come up for healing. This is the only way old emotions can be released; when it comes up once again to the surface of our conscious mind where it can be acknowledged, loved and let go!

Andrea: When it comes to the sandbag dilemma and how we let go of our emotional baggage, all of us will go through this process at a different pace. What has been your experience regarding the speed at which people are able to let go of their sandbags?

In the book I compare our healing journeys to a hot air balloon. Sandbags are the emotional baggage that we need to release in order to finally LIFT OFF into the higher vibration of peace that we all seek. And you are right, Andrea! We all walk through our healing at different paces.

There are 7 billion people on this Earth which results in 7 billion unique healing and spiritual journeys. It’s like stars and snowflakes. No two are alike. Everyone has their own path and journey. In addition to this, each individual can choose the pace at which they complete that journey.

Inner work such as healing definitely takes courage and commitment and sometimes it can be extremely uncomfortable; depending on what it is we need to face. One thing I would recommend to everyone is to show yourself compassion as you navigate your healing journey. If do not feel ready to face an old suppressed wound, then allow yourself some time. It is okay to do that. On the flip side, you could be making excuses to avoid having to face the uncomfortable emotions. Only YOU know if you truly need some more time or if you need some extra support or simply need a kick in the pants to face what you need to face. No one else can tell you how quickly or slowly you should be healing. It’s your own unique journey. Please go at your own pace while staying in integrity with your inner guidance and knowing.

Andrea: Can you talk more about peace and love being a birthright? I think this is important to remember. 

Yes, in the book, I talk about claiming the energy of peace and love because it is our birthright. What do I mean by birthright? Well, God only knows love and peace. We are birthed from God, and so we are his reflection. We can only be love and peace at our core essence and we fully deserve to experience this at all times because it is who we are.

Feelings of abandonment, betrayal, anger, worry, fear, shame or guilt prevents us from living our life from that core essence of peace. When we allow those negative emotions to make a home in our energy field, we start living our life as if those negative emotions are a constant Truth for us and eventually that anger or worry becomes part of our identity.  Other people may start to label us as an angry person or someone who worries too much. But none of those negative emotions have anything to do with the real and TRUE Being that we are; which is a loving and peaceful Being. When we strip away all the negative emotions that we have cultivated throughout our lives, we are left with complete peace. The way we claim back that peace is through releasing past emotional pain. Once we heal our emotional body, we now have the opportunity to, once again, allow peace and love to flow to us and to all areas of our life; the peace and love that is us, our truth, our birthright and which we all fully deserve without condition.
