Increasing Intuition & Another Book Recommendation

I've been spending a lot of time lately trying to strengthen and increase my intuition and psychic abilities. I've also been learning a lot about how to work with instead of against my empathic abilities - it becomes a bit of a challenge sometimes, but with the right tools all of a sudden things have started to fall into place. 

I always have a stack of books somewhere close to me and the other day I was drawn to pick up and start reading Colette Baron-Reid's book Remembering the Future. I love spiritual books when the author talks about their own experiences and how they view things on a personal level. Sometimes, I could swear I'm going crazy and everything in my head is just my really-vivid-over-active-imagination, but when I read what other intuitives are going through, or have gone through, I feel better.. like maybe I'm not crazy. Colette had so many real experiences to share in her book and I really enjoyed reading about her process through the beginnings of her gift and how she came to accept it and herself. I liked the book so much it prompted me to purchase her other book Messages from Spirit as well as her Journey Through the Chakras CD. 

I'm so excited to start working with her Chakra CD since I recently started a daily meditation practice which has opened the door for some really wonderfully magical things to start happening. I think the trick was to do the meditation on a daily basis, not just whenever I remembered - deciding and making the commitment to a daily practice lets the Universe know that you are serious about your desire for expansion and greater awareness.

Another thing I have noticed is that I really need to watch what I eat. I can get away with a few treats here and there, but I cannot have sugar on a daily basis.. it makes my intuition very fuzzy and sometimes (if I've really eaten too much of the stuff) I feel completely disconnected. So now I've started taking a probiotics. You can get probiotics in food (yogurt and keifer are great sources), but you can also purchase specific strains of probiotics that will help with symptoms you're having. Whenever I eat a little too much sugar (especially around the holidays) I always take a daily pack of ThreeLac Probiotics. The bacteria in ThreeLac helps with candida and related symptoms. It's very easy to use, it comes in single serving packs so you can toss them in your purse or travel bag for anytime use. I've heard the best way to take it is to allow the powder to dissolve in a glass for at least a few minutes prior to drinking, but you can pour the powder straight into your mouth and then take a drink after if that's the only way you can get it down (although it's really not that bad to begin with!)

I would love to hear tips & tricks from anyone who has experience in this area... What helps you tune in to your intuition? Have you found food to influence your abilities?

I have lots more to post, but it's getting late... so until next time..

Blessings & Light

Lots to Catch Up On...

Wow, I really feel like I've been missing here from the Land of Blog. So, lots to catch up on.. I think I'll just break everything down into smaller posts over the next few days. That's one of the things I've been working on.. making lists and actually using them!

I've been working on so much lately. Doing a lot of body and energy work, really trying to expand my awareness and reading... never-endingly-reading. It's take quite a few months, since the kids have gone back to school, of almost non-stop working on myself, but I think I'm getting to a point where I feel like progress is being made. After the last 9 years I've just been through, I never thought this day would ever exist again.. I honestly felt I was destined to live a half-life that basically consisted of being a slave for the ones I love. And now, well.. things are changing at an incredible rate and I'm just so excited! So.. I feel like working a daily blog post into my routine shouldn't be a difficult thing, especially when I'm going to be blogging about all sorts of really incredible stuff that you are just going to love! Hopefully the information I share with you will help you on your path as much as it has helped me along mine...

Since I've been reading so many books I thought maybe posting some book reviews might be a good idea - I honestly worry sometimes that I won't have enough time to read (or listen) to all the books I need to hear before I'm gone from this reality. And then of course I remember that the answers to everything we need to know are already inside of us, so I calm down.. but having a book catapult you into the right direction sometimes sure does help! And then of course all the books just-for-fun that are out there.. well, don't get me started!

So.. The first book I really want to share with everyone is Path of Empowerment - Pleiadian Wisdom for a World in Chaos by Barbara Marciniak. I've got about a chapter and a half to go until I'm finished, but I just couldn't wait to post this one! Basically we can choose to live in any world we want to and our reality can and will shift when our beliefs do. This book can help to really expand your beliefs and help confirm a lot of the things you may be thinking or feeling, but maybe you're not sure about it.. "are you just making it up?" or "could it be real?" This book for me help to confirm a lot of what I was 'knowing' but didn't trust myself enough to just go with. I think I sat in awe just reading the first chapter.. I felt like I was taken to another time itself, a time when suddenly everything in my world made sense. A few of the Chapter Titles (just to get you excited):

  1. Multidimensional Reality and the Design of Existence
  2. Energy and Frequency - A New Playground of the Mind
  3. Accelerated Energy and Stretching Your Mind in the Nanosecond of Time
  4. The Intimate Dance of Beliefs and Emotions
I won't give anymore away, but I will just say the chapter on Sexuality (chapter six) is amazing! So either pick up a copy from Amazon.com or check out Barbara's website for more information!

Off to go read some of the blogs I've been missing these past few months! If you've got a good post you want some comment love on, just leave a message here and I'll come visit you and read what ya got!

Until Next Time...
