SOULFUL SUNDAY – THE REAL YOU
You’ve most likely heard the saying,
“Seek and thou shalt find”.
We do this with almost everything. When we want a job, we seek out Google. When we want food, we seek out our preferred grocer or supermarket. When we want to go on a holiday, we seek out friends — and Google again.
What about when something doesn’t feel right — when you feel uptight or excessively tired. When you feel flat in your effect or frustrated with your job. When you have less patience for people or are irritated by so many things.
Do you self enquire and ask what’s really going on? Do you ask yourself what you are really seeking and hope to find? Maybe it is help, love or compassion. It could be to share your whole self and have someone hold your deepest feelings. Maybe you are scared to go inside yourself, to actually hear the real you.
Each day you get up, get ready and go to your somewhere — whether it’s work, meetings or school. You see someone and conversation begins. To ensure no cracks are visible, you paint a smile on your face, increase the tone and pitch in your voice and speak of what’s easiest. But then something else starts to speak to you. Something that feels deep, incredibly familiar and speaks so much truth. For years, you may have squashed that voice — the one that knows your deepest needs and desires —for reasons that can only play out for so long. That voice is your intuition and it resides deep within your heart.
We are all made of the same three components of the mind, body and soul, yet it’s like we live them in separation. The body sends us a message that there is tightness in the chest and breathing becomes less comfortable. We start to tap our chest with our hand and try to use the mind to will it away. We begin to think we have anxiety so we seek help from our doctor who prescribes light dose medication to ease the discomfort, or we speak to a friend who advises as best they know how.
But where in this equation have you checked in with yourself? What has your intuition been so busting to share with you, that the body is now reacting and the mind is in overload?
Intuition resides in the Heart Chakra — the centre of the seven Chakras. It is our generator of deep knowing, where our feelings and emotions reside. It is the receptive Chakra that senses truth without conscious reasoning and trusts its power in vulnerability, allowing for receiving, nurturing, receptivity and emotional intelligence. It is here that intuition is at home and rises.
The producers from the infamous documentary, ‘The Secret’, continued their efforts in creating ‘The Power of the Heart.’ They showed research studies on healthy humans, connecting electrodes to the participants’ external chest and scalp. The experiment consisted of images being shown, which varied from lovely (fluffy white rabbits) to horrific (fatal accidents). Prior to the image being visually seen by the participant, their heart beat was calm or rapidly increased and their pupils would either dilate or constrict. The heart knew what the image was before the human eye could see it, as if the heart were preparing the conscious mind for what was about to come. They concluded that the heart began responding 20 seconds prior to the images being seen with the human eye.
It is time to activate all three components of yourself. We all have intuition, there are no exceptions or exclusions. When those messages are brought into your life, seek guidance to help you understand and implement them into your life. There is no need to search outside yourself or to wait for more proof, for the simplest place to begin is listening to the powerful messages that come from the most important person in your life: you.
