More and more I am creating room in my life for Sacred Connection. I find myself craving it. The pull to figure out how to allow the human part of me to experience more of the divine part of me is undeniable.
Many people I work with are looking for this connection too. Maybe even you? They yearn to feel connected to their Vibe Tribe, to their Soul, and to God. We used to be able to quench this desire by going to church,
I am having a day.
One of those terrible, horrible no good, very bad days. (Remember Alexander?)
Maybe you can relate?
- I woke up late.
- Rushed to my first appointment.
- Couldn’t find a parking place.
- Had a very serious discussion with my cardiologist about something odd on my EKG. I now have a cardiologist.
- Understood next to nothing about what he said.
You have read about Awakening, but you don’t know if it is happening to you? This information will help. Keep reading.
Typically there are two types of awakening.
The Dramatic Oh-My-God-What-Is-Happening Awakening
This is the kind of awakening where literally your world falls apart. You have a traumatic accident, life-changing event, near-death experience, lose a job, spouse, home. Something big happens and you look around and your life is no longer what it used to be.
I talk to a lot of people in my work. Often times a client will start our conversation by saying, “This may sound crazy, but….
I can feel other people’s emotions
I am having weird dreams where I space travel
I see beings in my meditations
I know what other people are going to say before they say it
or, or, or.”
Understanding the difference between your intuition and a regular old thought is HUGE. It will save you angst, time, and misdirected action.
Here are a few clues to help you know the difference.
-feels like a fresh idea -similar to your own thoughts
-has depth and energy behind it -feels flat like cardboard
-drops into your awareness -comes from your mind
-comes at unexpected times -comes while wrestling problem
-accompanied by a sensation in heart or gut -feels like it comes from head
-feels clear but without emotion -weighted with emotion
-doesn’t feel like it comes from your analytical mind -arises directly from logical brain
If you are contemplating a next move or deliberating a problem and would like some one-on-one help discerning between your intuition and your analytical brain,
In my practice I work with people who are often trying to get to the heart of the matter. They want to know how to have a successful marriage, how to change careers mid-life, how to raise happy kids or how to integrate spirituality into their lives.
My clients are trying to understand themselves and their lives at a deeper level. They don’t want to live life on the surface skating by. They want to explore all the best ways to fully integrate a life with meaning.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown our your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” —Commencement address, Stanford University, June 12, 2005
