Declutter Your Inner World

“When many voices are speaking at once, listen to the one most quiet and gentle. That’s the one worth listening to.”
–Miranda Linda Weisz

Crisis, illness, challenges sometimes life comes at us fast. When we are blindsided by a work situation, a family argument that becomes a feud, an accident that sends us to the hospital, it can feel like the ground beneath our feet is giving way. We become anxious and unsure what to do. Stress builds and we may feel the only solution is to try to out run the disaster. But we do have options. One of those is to slow down, return to the present moment and breathe, for in this place we are empowered and can listen.

Chaos initiates change (if we allow it) and change awakens life affirming gifts within us: trusting in the unfolding of life. Breaking the habit of worry. Connecting to our core to hear our inner voice, that quiet, wise one, whose perfect wisdom protects us against the storms that thunder through.

Want to know what simple steps will connect you to your inner voice? I have composed a list of wellness methods from prominent practitioners in the fields of metaphysics, health and nutrition. These easy exercises will give you a jump start on decluttering your inner world because your quiet, gentle voice is the key to your happiness and success.

Ground
Remember what it feels like after a summer rain? You can get that feeling by walking barefoot on the ground. Nutritionist, David Wolfe purports that when we take off our shoes and plant our feet on the earth, within five minutes the atmospheric static electricity that has collected in our bodies discharges. Performing this easy method counteracts the positive charged electricity that breaks down our immune system. When we touch the earth we absorb its negative ions and they charge up our immune system. Studies report that there are measurable health benefits with grounding. Gaining a few ions does wonders for your frame of mind.

Reflect
Doreen Virtue extols spending time in Nature reminds us of the infinite abundance that we see all around when we walk along a path or in the woods. As we get in touch with Nature we get in touch with our own nature and our creative ideas come forth. Disconnecting can be a responsible investment where you access a new idea, a new way of doing things…maybe a time saving way of doing things, your new book emerges or you may invent something that helps the world.

Stabilize
Smoothing your nerves soothes your mind. The sound of a bell or the radiance of a light inside the front door gathers in pause, refreshment and mindfulness to the beginning and ending of each day. The cure is such: when you open the front door create an automatic response. Either wire the light (make it bright) so it goes on when the door is open or a clear sound is heard like that of a bell or chime. Set your intention so your nervous system is smoothed out and see yourself responding completely and with clarity to your environment.

Breathe
When we breathe, we inspire and fill our lungs and body with pure Ch’i. Oxygenating our brain stimulates, motivates, encourages, influences, energizes and arouses us. Measured breathing, breathing in deeply and exhaling at the same rate, slows our thought processes down to a still point where we begin to access our inner voice.

Listen
Meditating according to Abraham Hicks allows you to expand to the fullness of who you are and resonate with the Source that is within you. Taking five minutes for a Yin meditative practice clears the blockages of frustration, worry and doubt. The Supreme Yoga Section One meditation quickens your good judgement; improves sleep and health; and helps you recapture your natural power and balance. A nuance to all BTB Feng Shui meditations from H. H. Lin Yun is before any nourishing method we begin with:
Rubbing your Palms
Rub your palms back and forth nine times so that they become quite warm and they if they don’t become warm after nine times. Back and forth is one time. If they are not warm after nine time then you might do 18 or 27 times. You want your palms to be really warm.

I would love to hear how you stepped back into being and what you did to get there.

June 4 New Moon I Your Next Adventure

“Tell me, what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
– Mary Oliver

This June 4 new moon take your precious life into your imagination and let it run the entire lunar month. The influences are keen for it. The clever Horse is energetic, quick, enthusiastic and loves an enterprise. The sparkling, creative Monkey likes to make things up as it goes and relishes making ingenious plans. Horse and Monkey are experts at thinking up new adventures. Make use of their charisma by taking some time from your schedule, “because it is important to attend to the well-being of your personal self…” (Abraham Hicks)

You can amplify your well-being and take advantage of what you desire to accomplish with these four things you can do everyday from Abraham Hicks.

Meditate 15 minutes everyday. Quiet your mind with the simple intention of allowing your cork to float.

Spend time in Nature. Go outside no matter what the weather and move around in it in appreciation of this planet. Look up and around and find things to acknowledge and talk about them right out loud. Such as when Esther walks through her garden and says to everything,“You are my favorite. You are my favorite bird in the tree, you are my favorite stone on the path, you are my favorite flower in bloom…”

Write in a notebook daily. You could call it, “My Book of Positive Aspects”. Fill it with three to five pages of positive aspects. Choose five different subjects and write on the positive aspects of each one. You are train your vibration into an upward place.

Look upward and acknowledge universal forces. Best if you do it outside or at a window. Acknowledge there are universal forces that are focused right at you. Acknowledge it by calling it by name. And then say, “I acknowledge that I am the object of your positive attention. And I am appreciating your continual gaze on behalf of my well-being. And today, no matter where I am, no matter where I am going, no matter what I am doing and no matter who I am doing it with, I will be in conscious awareness that you too are there with me. Appreciating me, supporting me, assisting me, acknowledging me, inspiring me, guiding me, having fun with me, helping me, aware of me, loving me, showing me, uplifting me…get into an endless loop of that acknowledgement. And watch what begins to happen.

To get into the spirit, I add the vitality of the rainbow colors to my wardrobe. A scarf is a quick lift. Something more permanent, like a wind sock at a corner eave, helps me drink in all the seven hues and sustains my energy.

What does this lunar month hold for your Chinese Zodiac animal? Read on and imagine your next adventure. Rat: you are in Direct Conflict with Horse.
