One of my purposes for being on this planet is to become conscious about consciousness. It is perhaps why I find myself seeking to dive deep into the understanding of the mind-body-spirit connection. I am fascinated how that manifests in each human being (or doesn’t) and how it amasses into beliefs, culture, religion, and general world views. It influences who we are, what we chase after, and how we behave while we’re doing it.
My general feeling is that 95% of the population moves through life on autopilot chasing carrots, pushed along by subconscious motoring not clearly understood by the conscious mind. However, that subconscious part has a TON of good information that can help us lead happy, peaceful, actualized lives. Yet, we are not taught how to do this in school, unless we take graduate level work in depth psychology. Even then, programs fall short.
In order to find the tools necessary to open up that part of our minds, we need look outside the mainstream. Developing intuition is key to that journey. Intuition is important because it is our main navigation system. It is also a key to inspiration. For me, developing this has been a lifetime pursuit. When my intuition is firing (and I listen) I get into far less trouble and am able to be available to what is trying to emerge through me. If I’m ignoring my intuition, or not trusting it because of what others say, I pay the price.
In my ongoing pursuit of strengthening intuitive muscles, I spent over 20 hours in a workshop this past weekend called “Intuitive Mastery Seminar.” I wasn’t sure what to expect. I didn’t know much about it other than I was being called by my intuition to take it. I’m more than thrilled I trusted that voice inside.
The way I would describe these three days is the fast track to higher consciousness. I was amazed how in such a short period of time (over a weekend) we were able to cover so many aspects of working with our subconscious minds. The nicely laid out format included song, lecture about such things as beta, alpha, theta and gamma states, and many guided meditations. The meditations are designed to take each student to the alpha state wherein lies all we need to know about questions before us. (I swear I touched theta more than once. I know, because I get super creative in there.)
This combo format forms a playground for your imagination. Our teacher, Rob, had an amazing voice. He probably should be a meditation recording master if that’s a thing. While about 20 of us (depending on the day) went into deep meditative states, Rob guided us to do such things as create our own workspace/healing/sacred spaces in any way we wished. We returned here for various meditations. (It may not surprise you to know I have added a Korean Spa to mine.) Just letting our imaginations dance felt very productive.
In guided meditations, I invented new healing tools to help people who are struggling and to proactively maintain prime mind-body-spirit health. I met my parents when they were babies, then adolescents, then teens which gave me a really interesting perspective on them I hadn’t had before. In live time, I sat with a partner and was able to practice remote healing on a person she knew that I didn’t know, and allow her to do the same. We were both so excited how accurate each of us were able to achieve that even though we were both feeling iffy at first. We all have the ability to work with these flows. It’s just knowing the steps.
The true gift from this weekend was to remember each of us have an enormous supply of gifts to offer in service to the world. We are all able to access far more of this supply then we realize. In so doing, we can give back to lift the world up in love, compassion, and healing which is really what makes us most fulfilled in the end.
Knowing that’s possible makes my heart happy–in an illuminated kinda way.
