EXCERPT

Practical Intuition

Our intuition is an inner voice that speaks with an essence of love. As we connect to that loving energy, we feel supported. We feel relaxed and safe, knowing that everything happening at this moment has a greater purpose.

Begin with those small calls to action, the ones that say, Today reach out your friend—because who knows what that friend is going through at this moment? Understand that those gut feelings, and that sense of urgency behind them, may very well be lifesaving for that dear loved one of yours.
If you “hold on” to that intuitive guidance, it’s like a mail carrier receiving a parcel and refusing to deliver it. If you keep it to yourself, only one person is going to benefit from it, and that’s you. However, if you choose to share that message—to have the courage and the confidence to speak what you feel—then it may change the lives of your loved ones and allow them to feel happier and freer . . . and be inspired to then trust their own gut feelings. They, in turn, will share their intuitive messages, and that ripple effect spreads.

As you listen to your inner guidance, it may tell you something simple, such as Switch lanes, while you’re driving in the car. It may become more complex, such as You need to leave that relationship, You need to change careers, or You need to move.
Your intuition can be like an internal lie detector. When you meet someone, you can immediately tell if you like him or her or if something about what he or she is saying rings untrue. You get a sense of somebody’s energy the instant that you make a connection, and your internal lie detector says, Yes, this is a wonderful person!—or, it does the opposite and tells you to get as far away as you possibly can.

Sometimes you pick up on different energies when you’re in somebody’s home. Do you feel uplifted, or do you get a sense that the person is just trying to impress you? Is that energy stagnant with negativity? You’ll know.

So please trust the messages that you receive when you meet somebody or when you enter a new environment. Do so especially if you’re going to see practitioners or healers, because if you go into a space feeling uncertain or afraid, that’s a sign to step back.

This is something that we’ve learned to listen to when we’ve been invited to attend particular seminars. We feel that our purpose here on Earth is to help as many people as we can. We hope to spread healing messages about spirituality, natural health, God, and the angels. But we still have to trust our own intuition. Sometimes we get invited to speak at events that sound wonderful, but there’s something in our gut that says, Don’t do it.
When we trust that information, even though it might feel uncomfortable at the time, we’re then able to look back on that event at a later date and understand why we were guided to stay away. Often it’s not because the organizers or attendees were “bad” or anything like that, but rather something else came up that more urgently required our attention. We might not have been able to give 100 percent at that particular event. Perhaps we’d been so busy throughout the year that we needed some time to rest.

As you listen to your intuition, you learn that the way in which God and your angels communicate with you is special and unique because you are special and unique. Rather than feeling like you have to fit inside a box, honor your own perceptions.
Trust your intuition. Truly, it’s the heavenly voice of God and your angels coming through.

Science and Intuition

At one time, intuition was considered an old wives’ tale. Today, researchers have solid scientific foundations for the process of intuition. Dozens of studies support the value of intuition in decision making and finding creative solutions to problems. A recent study stated that medical doctors can achieve better outcomes in their patients’ care by calling upon their intuition when making decisions. The researchers concluded, “Intuitive and analytical decision processes may have complementary effects in achieving the desired outcomes of patient decision support” (de Vries et al. 2013). A related study found that farmers use intuition more than analytics.
Many studies have focused on our physical reactions to various situations, measuring blood pressure, brain waves, perspiration, and heart rate in response to stimuli, such as looking at emotionally charged photos or video clips. In some intriguing experiments, the participants’ heart and other systems were shown to react to a photo or video even before the people being studied were shown the stimulus. Most of these experiments are “double-blind,” which means that neither the participants nor the researchers know beforehand which type of image the person being studied will see. The studies show that our bodies “know” when something emotionally charged is coming our way.

Perhaps you’ve had this experience yourself when you woke up feeling excited or happy for no known reason. Or, similarly, you felt a sense of dread on a day when something unforeseen and unpleasant later occurred.
Research has demonstrated that our palms begin to sweat when we’re around something harsh or dangerous several minutes before our conscious minds can register the threat. This makes sense, as the hands have a high number of sensory neuronal connections to the nervous system. Scientists believe that if we could learn to pay attention to our palms’ subtle signals, including perspiration, it would enable us to be consciously be aware of—and avoid—danger.
Similar studies find that our heart rate and blood pressure increases when people are directing negative thoughts our way, and that these functions relax and decrease when others are thinking positive thoughts about us. It turns out that “sending love” is a measurable energy!

Intuition Works with the Body’s Systems

Our ancient ancestors relied on their intuition to ensure their physical safety. Imagine the vulnerable feeling of walking outside to forage for food, where you depend on your wits to stay alive. This is the same built-in system wild animals use for survival. While we now shop in grocery stores for food and live in houses, this doesn’t mean that our ancestors’ instincts have “evolved away.”
Researchers have pinpointed the brain’s right hemisphere, which is associated with emotions and the arts, as the center of our intuition. Additionally, the autonomic nervous system, also called our “ancient brain,” appears to be hardwired to instinctively react to potential danger in a way that could be called “intuitive.” The brain’s limbic system—our feeling center—can sense danger detected by the autonomic nervous system before it’s physically apparent. In this way, our intuition (if we listen to it) keeps us safe.

In the face of stress, our nervous and endocrine systems work closely together to bring about harmony and balance. These two systems are linked by the hypothalamus, a structure in the brain’s limbic system. While the endocrine system is made up of many glands, the most important to know in regard to stress and intuition are the pituitary and adrenal glands. Let’s look at how all these systems work together.

When your nervous system recognizes a stressor, it sends a message to the hypothalamus, which then releases hormones to deliver the message to the pituitary gland. Next, the pituitary sends out hormones influencing the adrenal glands. In turn, this causes your adrenals to release a hormone to reduce the effects of the stress. This pattern continues until your body is satisfied that you have enough stress-relieving hormones available. Your body then relaxes, and the nervous system calms.
However, if stress continues for extended periods of time, the biological exchange of neuro-messages and hormones may become unbalanced. If the hypothalamus, pituitary, or adrenal glands become depleted, it creates a strain along the cascade. This causes a change in your stress response, energy levels, and hormones.
By supporting your endocrine and nervous systems nutritionally, you will help keep your intuition clear and sharp. And, conversely, listening to your intuition is a big factor in reducing your stress levels, as it will guide you to avoid stress-producing situations in the first place. Your intuition may also lead you to a stress-management program that’s custom-tailored to your interests, schedule, and budget.

by Robin Eagle Sage, Medical Intuitive

Have you ever wondered if your physical pain is caused by unresolved emotional experiences? Each month, Medical Intuitive, Robin Eagle Sage, will share one of her medical intuitive readings with you. Using her clairvoyant abilities, this wise Sage will unravel the causes and cures of a patient’s illness. In turn, you will discover the great power capable of every individual to heal from within! Pseudonyms are used to protect the patient.

Patient: Felicity

Medical Issue: Stabbing sharp pain throughout entire body. Lower pelvic pain, abdomen pain, dysfunctional uterus bleeding, fibroids, iron deficiency-anemia, ovarian cyst, ovarian ruptured cyst, pre-cancerous lesion on the cervix, pelvic inflammatory disease, migraine, headaches, indecisive, mentally exhausted, frustrated, un-ease, blocked. Lack of concentration. Unable to express thoughts and feelings. Unable to tolerate noise. Worry, fear, doubt. I feel off-balance, blocked, mood-swings, emotionally exhausted, hurt, guilty, unhappy.

When I asked what is causing Felicity’s health issues, I saw a number of spirits, entities and people in her crown chakra trying to confuse her and feed off of her energy. I saw that Felicity is intelligent, funny and dynamic too. But all of these spirits and people are trying to put out her fire! What this means energetically, is that Felicity is agreeing to it, on a subconscious level. My job is to find out why.

I saw that Felicity is unsure about who she is. I asked her about this and she agreed and said it started happening about a year ago. I believe it started much earlier than that. Felicity’s confusion about who she is, is both the cause and effect of these beings who control her. When there is confusion and doubt about one’s identity, it creates a magnet for energies to enter and take over the body. It also furthers the process of confusion. I did some healing work on Felicity’s head and crown chakra to clear some of these entities and taught her how to voice her need for space and to ask them to leave.

Next, I saw a past life of an old black man with grey hair wearing overalls and holding a pitch fork. He was an inebriated slobbering hick telling his granddaughter (Felicity) a bunch of nonsense. I felt love from him toward his granddaughter, but I also saw that he was giving Felicity a lot of excuses for his debilitating behavior and inappropriate actions. Her grandfather was a sex-offender who “took” every opportunity to have sex right in front of the young girl. He did “it” with anyone and all the time.

Her grandfather told Felicity, “In order to survive in life you have to be strong.” He said this to imply that what he was doing was right and that it was up to HER to be strong. This confused Felicity. She loved and trusted her Grandfather who was her only family, yet he was doing terrible things. Felicity could not understand if his addictions were right or wrong. She trusted her granddaddy. She even wondered if these issues were her fault.

I asked Spirit how this past life is affecting Felicity now. I heard, “These past experiences have made her buy into what other people say, even when they are false. Felicity lacks self-trust and believes that other people’s actions are okay when they are not.” I told Felicity that she must become clear about what is right and wrong. I told her that she must let go of guilt and that all people, especially children who are victims of sexually inappropriate behavior, believe it is their fault. As long as Felicity believes this on any level, both spirits and people will invade her space and continue to dupe her. I suggested counseling for Felicity in order to help her understand that her past experiences are neither her fault nor appropriate. And that she can stop believing everything she is told.

At this point, Felicity told me that in this lifetime, when she was 17 years old she was corralled into a job selling magazines across the nation. In truth, she was kidnapped, could not leave the “job” and was trafficked into a haram with an older man who raped and tried to kill her daily.  These were Felicity’s exact words. Apparently, every time she tried to escape this man would control her and tell the police it was simply a domestic quarrel. Sadly, the police believed this award-winning con-artist, pedophile and sex-offender. This continued for years before she finally escaped. Felicity said that many years later, she is now in the process of a court case to put this man into jail once and for all. Apparently the police have been looking for him for years. Now it is Felicity’s chance to empower herself, but she will have to be strong and do whatever it takes to remain safe.
I explained to Felicity that the reason she had this experience is because she hadn’t healed and learned from the experience with her grandfather in the past life. In order to grow, Felicity must: acknowledge that it was not her fault, stop believing what everyone says, learn to call a spade a spade and let go of shame and guilt. In addition, her daily routine must be to fill her womb with her own female beauty, self-trust, love and self-acceptance and to know that she is a worthy child of God who deserves a safe life. Felicity and I spoke about how she can become more empowered and self-assured and what she can do in order to feel this way. I am not an advocate of guns, but I saw that if Felicity feels safer and more empowered with a gun, pepper spray, a guard dog or police protection, that she should employ such protection as she builds her courage and inner strength. It will be important for Felicity to feel safe in order to fully heal and let go of the past, so that such harmful experiences need not occur again. When the cells of the body (human energy) turn from fearful to safe and whole, one is out of harm’s way. Felicity is a strong soul and she deserves to have a healthy body and a joyous life! My blessings are with you Felicity.

Patient: Jen
Medical Issue: Shrinking eye sclera (white of the eye).

When I looked at Jen’s eyes clairvoyantly I saw the colors grey and white. I heard, “Who am I?” I saw Jen has limited thoughts and beliefs and is not able to see greater truths and possibilities. Jen is fighting for attention in the world and her energy is outside of her body. This is an important issue because when one’s energy is outside of the body one cannot know one’s self. I told Jen to pull her energy into her body on a daily basis by imagining her particles coming into her body like a genie coming into its bottle. I asked Jen to ground her body by feeling weight coming into her feet or sacrum.

I saw that Jen’s mother did not want a child. This has caused Jen to feel that she must wave a big flag in the air to get her mother’s love and attention. This effort takes Jen out of her body and away from her true self which is self-love. I saw a blockage in the back of Jen’s head in her occipital ridge. This is where she is struggling to be seen by her mother and also by others. This blockage and way of being needs to be released completely. Jen has been struggling for attention for so long, her head is hardwired to repeat the pattern of struggle.
Jen must know that she deserves peace. She can be at peace by constantly pulling her own healthy energy into her body, releasing her mother’s energy from her head, repeating the mantra, “I deserve peace” and then taking a deep breath while feeling lovable. Deep breathing is important as it will oxygenate her eyes and brain as well as create new neuropathways that instigate peace, love and self-worth.

Jen’s wanting to be known and seen is causing the decrease of sclera in her eyes. When she lets go of the effort of caring about what other people think, such as, “Does my mother or father love me?” she can heal. Jen is trying to learn as a spirit that she is the most important person in her life and she is her own best guide, master, parent and child. The attachment to her parents, i.e. seeing her life through their eyes, is what is making her sick. When I said this, Jen told to me that she lives with her parents. Therefore, releasing her attachments to them will be essential for her growth.

I saw that Jen needs omega-3 oils, such as, walnut and flax oils. She also needs her neurotransmitters to establish greater connections. She can do this by relaxing her head, walking in nature with fresh air and learning new things. A great way to promote this would be by taking an interesting class, getting a head massage, finding new ways to walk home from work and making new friends. Jen’s brain needs something positive and uplifting to chew on.

I told Jen that if she lived alone without her parents she would probably go out and adventure in the world. Because she is codependent with her parents, she is not discovering her true self. I advised her to go into the world and discover herself now, before her parents make their grand transition. Doing so will make their relationship better, each finding greater respect for the other. When one respects, loves and cherishes themselves, it is energetic law that others will reciprocate such feelings to the exact degree.

Jen, when you see yourself for who you truly are, a divine spirit temporarily housed in a beautiful body, your eyes will heal. See clearly and you will know thyself as God.

Client: Sabrina
Medical Issues: Neck tumor, tiredness, lack of motivation.

When I looked at Sabrina clairvoyantly I saw a huge grey blockage in the upper right quadrant of her brain. It was very mucus-like. I heard “memories of a distant past” and knew that her issue concerned a past life.  Sabrina had a hidden memory that was blocking her brain’s ability to create, motivate, think clearly and remember.  It was taking a lot of her RAM space and making her tired.
I saw a stone mansion with maids and cooks working busily preparing meals for the rich barrister who lived there. Chefs were stirring pots of food and it was a mad frenzy. It looked just like the movie Downton Abby! Sabrina was hiding behind her mother, who, in this past life was a maid wearing a white apron and bonnet over her head. The master of the house practiced law and wore a grey wig. The year was 1683 and there was unrest in the house. Sabrina was hiding not only behind her mother, but from incest with the Barrister. The word incest tells me that the Barrister was related to her. This means that Sabrina’s mother, the maid, also experienced the same suppressed fate.
I looked clairvoyantly at Sabrina’s lump in her neck to see what was causing it. This tumor was energetically bright red with rage. I saw a little girl yelling to a man, “Who do you think you are? Get away from me!” She called the man “sore-eyes,” which is not a modern-day term. This was definitely the little Sabrina from her previous life trying to save herself from the prestigious lawyer.
Because the Barrister was a man of power and well respected in the community, it made it impossible for Sabrina’s claim to be heard. She was only the daughter of a poor maid and a servant to her master. No one had time to listen to this young girl, let alone believe her. Power was the key word.

At this moment I saw a flash of Sabrina’s father from this lifetime. Although I knew that her experiences with him were different from the Barrister, there were also parallels in regard to power. I said, “I don’t think there were any issues of incest with your father from this lifetime, but I do see that both men were in positions of power.” I saw that he was unreachable and untouchable and that her relationship with him was making her heart heavy. This in turn also made Sabrina tired and unmotivated in life. The blocked feeling in her heart was, “Why try?” As I told her this, Sabrina sighed and said, “Well, there’s a story here.” Then she preceded to tell me that her actual father was a high-powered drug lord. Again, a lord! That he was a major cocaine drug-trafficker who laundered over 200 million dollars’ worth of drug money! They believed he was murdered when she was three years old because he disappeared and his body was never found. Wow, I don’t know which lifetime was more dramatic, this one or the past! This also explained the heavy feeling in her heart!

I explained to Sabrina the impact on which both “father figures” had on her. Both felt they were above the law and did not know how to create a loving relationship with themselves or her. Together we did some healing work on forgiving both men. I heard her father from this lifetime say, “I’m so sorry. I never meant for it to go this way. I love you.” I wanted Sabrina to hear this for herself, so I did not say anything. Instead I told her that her father had a message for her. I asked Sabrina to tune-in to her father on a soul level and to listen to what he had to say. After twenty seconds she repeated the exact words that I had heard! Then she began to cry. I told Sabrina that her father does not want to hold her back from experiencing love and joy.

Next we did healing work on the Barrister. Sabrina said, “This will be more difficult. How can you forgive someone for molesting their own child?” I explained to Sabrina that everyone is doing the best they can even though it may not look that way to others. Most people have addictions, some are more serious than others. The name of the game with addictions is that you “can’t” control them and that they control you. Whether it’s an addiction to sugar, sex or overpowering someone, they are still out of people’s control… until they heal from them. I explained to Sabrina that forgiving these two men is for her sake, not theirs, even though it will heal and release them as well. One must become aware of, forgive and let go of the past in order to have all of one’s own positive energy working for one’s Self in the present time. Forgiveness (with boundaries) is always the name of the game as it leads to health and happiness.
After the reading I did some healing work on myself and then “unconsciously” chose to watch the movie, Maid in Manhattan with Jennifer Lopez. Within the first ten minutes of the movie I heard the manager of the hotel tell the maids, “The job of a Barrister maid is to…”

How to Get Along With Your Teenager by Marta Adelsman, Psy.D.

How to Get Along With Your Teenager

Marta Adelsman, Psy.D.

The transition between childhood and adulthood can be tough.  Your adolescent must accomplish the developmental task of separating from you, his parent.  For most teens and for parents as well, it’s a scary process.
Healthy parent-to-teen relating develops new ways of relating that leave behind parent-child components in favor of adult-to-adult communication.  Making the shift often creates instability and disequilibrium.  Before you reach a new harmony, the process often looks and feels chaotic.
I offer here are a few tips to manage the chaos and to parent adolescents successfully:
Diffuse the difficulty of these years by talking to your pre-teen about the developmental task ahead of him.  Let him know separating from parents can be a rough ride.  Tell him of your intention to get through the process with mutual respect.  Invite him to join you in laying the groundwork by communicating with each other how you would like to be treated.  This will be easier if you have already established a precedent for respectful conversations about feelings and expectations.
Use an assertive style of communication rather than an aggressive style.  Assertiveness means you respect your rights and those of your teen.  You take responsibility to set clear and firm boundaries.  You ask directly for what you need from her.  Assertiveness involves making requests instead of demands.  You relate with directness, openness and honesty while maintaining an even tone of voice and good eye contact.  You see your teen as equal to you (not in amount of experience but in her personhood), worthy of your respect and consideration.
An aggressive style uses hostility, threats and intimidation to manipulate your teen to do your bidding.  It ignores her rights as a human being.  It makes demands such as, “Turn down that damn music!  Can’t you see I’m trying to get some work done?”  An assertive request sounds like, “Please turn down the volume so I can get my deskwork done.”  Aggressiveness speaks with sarcasm and insults:  “Of course I can’t help you!  Do you think I’m at your beck and call every time you have a school project?”  Assertiveness says, “I’m sorry I can’t help you with that today.  I have a doctor’s appointment.”
Be real with your teen.  Tell the truth.  Let him know you sometimes aren’t fully confident how to parent a teen and you’re learning as you go.  Admit when you make a mistake.  If you fear you will lose status if you speak your truth, I assure you that confessions of imperfection make you more human in your teen’s eyes.   Authentic speaking may sound like, “I feel terrible when I yell at you,”  “I don’t know the answer to your question,” or “Sometimes the choices you make scare me.”  These honest admissions will reap huge benefits in the form of mutual respect.
If you incorporate these suggestions and keep your sense of humor, you are well on your way toward remaining on good terms with your child throughout those turbulent adolescent years.

Patient: Sylvia

Medical Issue: Insomnia, digestive issues, constipation.

 

When I asked what is causing Sylvia’s insomnia and digestive issues I saw some blockages in her heart, throat, head, belly and solar plexus. Along with this I heard that she “frets” and that this negative behavior is causing negative health issues. When I looked deeper I saw that Sylvia has issues with her father that is causing pain in her heart and effects how she feels about herself and her ability to love herself. It’s also effecting her solar plexus, which is about empowerment and self-esteem. And her digestion, which is about being able to digest life and let it go.
Sylvia said that her father had recently passed and that she had only seen him twice in twenty years. She said that he had been unwilling to leave his house for thirty years, so obviously he had some issues. Sylvia also said, “We were never close after he left my mom and my little brother and me to take care of ourselves. My mom had to go through a lot of pain to survive and bring us up alone. But I felt I forgave him for all that he did and mostly for what he didn’t do, such as being present or helpful in my life. In reality, he was so absent that I don’t remember a single moment in which he expressed love toward me – none!!!”
Sylvia was confused as to why her father’s energy was clogging up her body and health since she hardly ever saw him. I want to explain this to my readers, since so many people suffer from the absence of a parent. It is not a father leaving the family that creates pain and suffering in the body, mind and heart. It is how people respond to the experience that creates pain. Do they feel like a victim or do the take 50% of the positive responsibility? Both parties must be responsible for the break-up as all events are agree upon, even if it is subconscious. Yet typically people want to blame the other person and be a victim. This does not help either party. For example, how many adults or children look on the bright side and say to themselves, “Yeah, Daddy left us! Let’s celebrate his new beginnings! I’m so happy that Dad left so that he can fulfill his karma somewhere else and perhaps even meet another special woman to create a new family with!” Not too many kids feel this way when their parent leaves. In fact, as is the case with Sylvia, they take it personally and feel they caused their father’s departure. This feeling is devastating to the heart, mind, body and soul of an individual and can be traced to many diseases.
If your father left your family when you were growing up I can almost guarantee that you felt and STILL feel negatively responsible for the event. You probably will say that you don’t. But I can almost guarantee that your father or mother leaving you has caused some pain in your heart leading to addiction, failed marriages, poor income, low self-esteem, becoming a high achiever, etc. I say high-achiever because high-achievers are those who feel the need to prove their worth to themselves and the world. There are highly creative people who celebrate creativity through love and there also are high-achievers who achieve through effort. There is a big difference.
Imagine yourself as a young child when your father is leaving for good. Then imagine another child in your place while your father walks out the door. You will think that if you had been kinder, smarter, prettier or more fun, that your father would not have left. But this, of course, is untrue. It does not matter what you had done or not done, your father would have left anyway. It had NOTHING to do with you! It was his destiny, his choice, and how you respond to it is yours. So why not thank him for leaving instead? Why not do things differently than the main stream and say to yourself, “Wow, dad must have been suffering in this relationship/marriage to leave. Good for him for having the strength to leave. I hope his path is fruitful. I wish him so much love and beauty.” Is this what most men receive from their “left behind” families? Not at all. They often receive hatred, resentment, and manipulation. And when they don’t, there is more of a chance for a positive connection with the family “left behind.”
None of us are victims. We all make choices together, even if it does not seem that way. All agreements, even if subconscious, are mutual. I have spoken of this before and it is an important spiritual law to understand. When you understand this energetic truth you will see that it promotes love and forgiveness. It especially promotes self-responsibility because nothing happens to you, it happens with you and by you. If I could give any of my readers a positive message filled with promise, it would be this.
Turn your old story around. You were not left. You all “left” to go your own ways. Take responsibility for everything; the good, the bad and the ugly. And smile and leave the blame behind. There is always a choice, even when it does not seem that way to the average eye…

What Kind of Parent Are You?

authentic-parentingWhat Kind of Parent Are You?

My parents didn’t show much encouragement for my interests. When my father worked with wood, he wouldn’t let me hammer nails. Neither parent indulged my love for horses, and they hardly ever attended my gymnastics events or field hockey games. I felt like they didn’t really know me.
I conceptualize three kinds of parents. Mine typified what I would call uninvolved. This type doesn’t spend much time talking or doing things with their children. The children stop expecting parental involvement in their lives. They can easily become discouraged and may suffer from emotional issues of abandonment and low self-esteem.

Another type of parent I call over-involved. They make decisions for a child based on pre-conceived notions of who and what they want that child to do and be. Regardless of his feelings, these parents pressure him into activities they choose. They force him into sports when he wants to play chess. They make her play the violin when she wants to play drums. They hush their loud, social extravert because they want a quiet, compliant introvert. These parents don’t allow their child’s worldview to differ from their own. They make little effort to understand life from the child’s point of view.

The third type, the supportively involved parents, delight in their children’s strengths and interests. They exhibit these distinct characteristics:
Supportively involved parents hold an attitude of appreciation and wonder at their children’s evolving personalities and talents. They see how the path toward success for their children lies in encouraging them to follow their heart. They make them feel cherished and appreciated for who they are, independent from their performance in school, sports, music, etc. These parents allow Life to live their children, knowing that happiness and fulfillment, as well as financial success, are likely to come through doing what they love.

Supportively involved parents respect their children’s emotions. They connect through listening deeply and non-judgmentally to the child’s feelings. They celebrate achievements and give encouragement when the child fails. Instead of sheltering them from emotional pain, supportive parents allow their children to learn from anger, sadness, etc., offering love and support as the child works through her emotions.

These parents support their children through their physical presence. Through attending events and helping them gain mastery in a skill the child wants to learn, they show support by being there. Parents’ physical presence provides an underpinning of support and security as the child experiences the highs and lows of life. Susan Stiffelman, in Parenting Without Power Struggles, wrote about an important kind of physical presence and support: joyful and authentic children catch glimpses of their mother or father looking at them with wonder and love just because they exist.

When you celebrate and marvel at their uniqueness, you bestow on your children the greatest gift you could possibly give.

Building Bridges: How to Span the Gap Between Parents and Children

Building Bridges:  How to Span the Gap Between Parents and Children 

by Marta Adelsman

Wandering around an ice hockey equipment store with my son, Ethan, while not my favorite thing to do, made his heart sing.  At 11 years old, Ethan played goalie on a parks district ice hockey team and delighted in all things hockey.  While not my first choice of activities to do with my son, I knew how much this outing meant to him.

I had developed the once-a-week routine of having a “date” with each son.  We would spend 30 to 60 minutes doing something that he chose.  I wanted to develop a strong, healthy bond with these guys because I knew, when children feel isolated and disconnected from the most important adults in their lives, they often act out.

Through busyness, judgmental attitudes, and attempts to force children into behaviors and roles, parents unintentionally erect walls in the relationship.  When they perceive a wall, children will not reveal their true feelings, doubts, frustrations, etc.  Keeping these inside builds up pressure they don’t know how to handle.

Your job as a parent is to guide your child, not to force him.  Forcing builds walls.  Guiding builds bridges. When you have a relationship in which there exists a strong communication connection, your child will not as likely act out with harmful behaviors.

Certain parental attitudes and activities, built into your relationship with your child, can insure they feel connected to you and more open to your guidance.  It works best to implement these when children are young, although it’s never too late.

1) Stay non-judgmental.  Coming down hard on behaviors of which you disapprove sets up barriers. Instead of making the child wrong, be genuinely curious about her point of view.  Avoid judging her for her personal tastes.  Find out what she likes about the lyrics to a song you find distasteful.  Get into her shoes and understand how come she resists going to school.  She will feel heard, and that builds bridges.  Accept her for who she is in her Being – bright Essence that exists beyond her personality and behaviors and beyond your ideas of right and wrong.

2) Stay present.  When your child speaks to you, focus your attention away from what you are doing and look at him. You can also plan that weekly date, even if it’s only 15 minutes.  It’s not the amount of time you spend but the fact that you focus regularly on your child – doing what he wants to do – that builds the connection.  If you think you don’t have the time, don’t believe that thought.

It’s up to you to make sure your child trusts the bridge of connection.  A non-judgmental posture and being present make it easy for him to walk across it.

Round N’ Round We Go

Round N’ Round We Go

by Nancy M. Turcich, NTS, RPP, RPE

On October 16, 1982, I fell forty feet from a cliff and crushed three vertebrae in my upper back. The fall briefly left me paralyzed from the chest down. While in the hospital, I underwent a four hour surgery to place stainless steel Harrington rods on either side of my spine. Bone was taken from my hip to fuse and stabilize my spine. At the time, I was subjected to everything allopathic medicine had to offer- CAT scans, Physical Therapy, Respiratory Therapy, Drug Therapy, surgery, and a plaster body cast. The medical community succeeded in putting me back together and they reintroduced me to the world of self mobility. Slowly, all the things most people take for granted were once again becoming a part of my daily life. After spending four weeks in the hospital, I was released to continue recovering at home.

I was very fortunate to “recover” quickly, or so it seemed. As time passed, I was able to independently get up and walk although I was far from grace. Over time, my limitations began to manifest themselves and frustration followed. I found myself having to deal with muscle spasms and a nervous system that felt clumsy. For years, I stumbled around thinking I was asking too much for a body that was calm and ran smoothly.

Eventually, my life took a big turn. After getting back on my feet, I decided to help other people to do the same. I enrolled in a pre-Physical Therapy program at NIU to prepare for a career as a Physical Therapist. However, that was not to be.

In 1985, I entered The New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics in Albuquerque. Prior to my enrollment, I had no knowledge nor awareness of the natural therapy field. The school program began with the exploration of Massage Therapy. Due to nerve damage, I knew my legs and feet were most sensitive and they responded to touch in a big way. Although my body was very spastic, it was accepting positive touch more and more as the program progressed. Natural healing methods truly jump started my inner healing process.

Shiatsu (Japanese Acupressure), Deep Tissue Therapy, Polarity Therapy and Craniosacral Therapy were methods of healing explored within the program. Each and every therapy worked wonders upon my system. Slowly but surely, I was getting in touch with my body, my mind, and my soul. I felt wellness was within my reach; a long awaited process.

During the course of study we were introduced to Bach Flower Remedies®. Dr. Bach delicately removed flowers and plants from the environment and placed them in spring water. After allowing them to sit in nature and absorb its energetic vibration, he used them for healing purposes. These remedies facilitate healing on the mental-emotional level. In class, I chose “Star of Bethlehem” as my remedy due to its potency upon trauma. After considering all that I had been through, it seemed like a good place to start. Per instruction, our remedy was taken for a period of three weeks. At first I felt little change, but by the second week I was becoming despondent. That feeling lasted into the following week and then I felt happiness- happy to be alive. I used this remedy several times with a week or two between doses. Each time I had a similar reaction to the first encounter. Yet, through it all, as I sifted through the emotions I discovered missing pieces of myself. I was finally getting in touch with my emotional self and I was much more confident in my abilities on all levels. The “Star” was guiding me towards the light.

Throughout my time in therapy school I was feeling my body shift, which made it much more comfortable to live and enjoy life. I was amazed at the changes that had occurred simply by human touch. The most dramatic changes happened while receiving Polarity Therapy. Polarity Therapy facilitates the movement of energy throughout the body. This system works directly with the nervous system of the body and therefore, it provides stability and balance to the body. My body drank Polarity Therapy in as if it was nectar from the Gods. Although I didn’t know what Polarity Therapy was nor why it worked, I found it extremely soothing. My body was being stroked, sometimes without direct physical contact. Previously, I felt that my fall had only impacted my physical body. However, going through the Polarity process, I learned how deeply my entire “being” had been affected by my fall and my recovery. The trauma may have started out being physical, but as time passed it became clear how many layers the trauma had touched. Therapy school had shown me what to look for in therapy and what would assist my healing process.

In time, I found a therapist to work with me who specialized in Aromatherapy. Aromatherapy works with essential oils to help the body heal. These oils vibrate at various frequencies which, in turn, affect the body’s frequency, bringing it into harmony. I happened to resonate with the essence of Myrrh. Myrrh eased my pain and calmed my nerves. Once again, energy was at work. As time passed, my body became somewhat addicted to energy work. In 1989, I returned to New Mexico for continuing education classes. I was introduced to yet another healing technique. My instructor had noticed my body’s behavior in a previous workshop and he insisted that I participate in his Unwinding class. I entered the classroom with no preconceived notions nor expectations, which worked in my favor. Unwinding Therapy is a technique which allows a person to enter into old traumas and release them in a safe environment.

The Unwinding process unlocks many hidden emotions that may surface and be released in the session. A person can get into many awkward positions which mirror what occurred at the time of the trauma. Trauma can be on many levels and it is not only reflected on the physical level. My instructor seemed to know what was going to happen in my case and he arranged for me to be the first person on the table. There were groups of two or three people assisting each person on the table. Although my experience began on a table it didn’t end there. One of my classmates held my head and I felt anger quickly surface although I didn’t know what to do with it. As we proceeded, my body heading toward the floor. My therapists gently guided me and once safely on the floor, I curled up in a ball. They continued to assist me as I drew myself into a fetal position. As they held me there, I struggled to be free as I fought to release the trauma. My body temperature rose as a vast amount of energy was dispersed. After emerging from a ball on the ground I moved through various physical positions. Many things transpired in the two hours I was Unwinding, although I can only recall a few select events. When I finally opened my eyes the entire class had gathered around to watch my process in awe. It took some time to come back to reality after that, but it was worth the trip. What exactly happens while a person is Unwinding isn’t always clear. I recall the struggles I felt from within and the contortions my body took while it released. Things that had been hidden in my tissue finally saw the light of day. I discovered within the struggle lay a calm state; an inner peace felt deep in my soul.

Every trauma that we have experienced in our lifetime does not release at once. The body reveals pieces of the puzzle on several levels at different moments in time. Emotionally, I felt as though a floodgate had opened as anger, frustration, sadness and joy pumped through my veins in various stages of the treatment. As I was uplifted and protected while revisiting past events I also felt a great connection to spirit. The next time I went through Unwinding Therapy was at a workshop. Here too, I found myself accessing another level of my trauma. There was a great deal of physical pain, but it was accompanied by euphoria. My body arched just as it had when I landed on the rock in 1982. This time, however, I felt the impact and saw my body bouncing as it hit the boulder. The arching increased as I relived the experience. I could feel the rock spreading over countless areas of my backside causing discomfort throughout my body. It was surreal. I can’t say Unwinding is time travel, but it certainly feels that way. It provided me an opportunity to explore myself and the events that shaped my life for years. Unwinding seems to have its own agenda- overall well-being. I say that because it seems to show itself at the most appropriate time, not my time, but at the moment that works for everyone involved. It seems to have a mind of its own. This shouldn’t be too surprising because we all have Pure Consciousness within every cell. The body has all the wisdom and knowledge needed to provide us with the power to heal. Unwinding allowed me to tap into my inner abilities and discover the answers that I didn’t even know that I possessed. My healing process continues daily. I find people willing to help me negotiate the intricate doorways that lead me to a greater understanding of myself. Round N’ Round I go and where I stop, nobody knows.

Transformational Astrology — April 2015 by Henry Selzer

April 2015

by Henry Selzer

 

An April to Dig In, and to Remember to Breathe

The astrology of April features two eclipses, counting last month’s Spring Equinox solar eclipse that began the current cycle, and as well the lunar eclipse and Full Moon of the first weekend of April. With this potent configuration, this is shaping up to be a volatile month, also emphasizing singular Jupiter, as well as Chiron, Uranus Neptune and Pluto. We are all to a certain extent still reeling from the volatility of what we have been through over these first three months of the year, and are now attempting to integrate what we have learned.

Just as we are coming off of the final of seven exact hits of Uranus in square with Pluto, signifying the transformational tenor of these intense times that we are currently living through and the extent to which we are all of us in major flux, we have another opportunity for a look inside ourselves in resonance with this volatile aspect of revolutionary/evolutionary change that will last in one form or another to the end of the decade. The Full Moon eclipse of April 4th opposes Uranus and squares Pluto, while the Sun conjuncts Uranus. These two powerhouse planets are still only separated by less than a degree from the perfection of their recent square.

There are also definite cosmic stirrings currently that relate to Chiron, the Wounded Healer, which is strongly aspected in the timing of these eclipses, with the solar eclipse Sun and Moon in close parallel to Chiron. At this timing also, Venus was in perfect semi-sextile to Chiron, bringing relationship and aesthetics into the field of difficulty and also opportunity symbolized by this ultimately healing energy. When inner wounding comes up, especially in inter-personal interaction, there is always an opportunity for healing if we remember to take it.

Mars, was also prominent at the eclipse timing, and in forming conjunction to the new planet, Eris, beyond Pluto. There is a Venus aspect to this interesting new archetype as well at the time of the April 4th eclipse. According to extensive research that I have been conducting, this recently arrived factor in Western Astrology represents a Feminine Warrior for Soul Purpose. Her strong presence now implies that over the course of this present month we will become more conscious to a greater sense of self that exists within each of us. This stems from an inner mandate for being yourself at all costs; for finding deep with you the potential for that which only you can provide. This way of being more fully in alignment with yourself at deep levels leads to greater happiness, as you suddenly find that you have a way to respond to the urgency of these fraught times that we are all living through.

Saturn is also prominent in Sagittarius, being almost exactly inconjunct Venus in her own sign of Taurus at the beginning of this extra-strong lunar cycle, and also inconjunct to Mars in Taurus at the timing of the April 4th lunar eclipse. The limitations and grounding provided by the wise old teacher archetype are a good complement to the high-flying symbolism of other prominent astrological factors such as Jupiter and Neptune.

Neptune is emphasized now, being conjunct Mercury at the timing of the Spring Equinox eclipse, and thus lends a strong component of imagination and idealism to the current astrology. With Saturn, Jupiter and Neptune all strongly configured we have a unique situation of push-pull for both a practical and a mystical way of seeing the word around us. We win when we allow both of these approaches to have their day, steering for the golden mean of a middle course that is neither too cautious, nor allowing ourselves to go so far out there that we lose contact with the earth beneath our feet.

 

ARIES (March 20-April 19). This is another climactic month for you, Aries, when many things come together. You have been riding the wave of transformation for many months, feeling the ultimate implications although perhaps unaware of specifics, heading for a hazy future. You are suddenly taking up the reigns in a more purposeful manner. You find support from allowing in the viewpoint of significant persons in your life, appearing as either mentors or as foils for your emerging position. Partners might thus provide a conceptual framework that enables you to more fully visualize your own. Your transformation is still in process, of that you can be sure, and with new stage you are getting more seriously committed to making only those changes that truly matter to you, deep down, and that will bring you into closer alignment with your soul intention.

TAURUS (April 20-May 19). This is another powerful month for you, Taurus, in a series of these, taking you forward in ways not always completely anticipated. You could feel lately like you are moving through molasses. You are heading toward an unknown future that beckons you, through a combination of idealism and fond illusion. These first few months of this year have been revolutionary and eye opening, especially referring to your inner eye, as your mystical journey continues. Partners continue to have a strong role to play, perhaps serving as catalysts to your own development. Your very identity is shifting, including your worldview. You might sometimes feel as though you are stuck on the verge of breakthrough. Your progress is subtle and yet nonetheless profound, and the ultimate outcome will be longer lasting and more greatly stabilized within you as a result of this longer term in your process of getting there.

GEMINI (May 20-June 20). This is an interesting and important month for you and your ongoing transformation of values and of societal connection, Gemini. There have already been the psychic storms of February and March, and as you slide into April you are continuing to fire on all cosmic cylinders. The concept of partnership provides grounding and a sense of serious commitment to the potential bond. Your vision for the future is constantly changing and yet has a mystical quality of enduring truth that you are quite aware of, at least subliminally. This has been a metamorphosis in which every facet of your life is in flux, including your goals themselves. These have been undergoing a revision of priorities from an outer orientation to the consensus thinking of the surrounding culture, to what is a most decidedly inner alignment to deep intention.

CANCER (June 21-July 20) This is yet another intense month, Cancer, after the crescendo of major change that February and March might have meant for you. Your vision is strong for a better way to be of service to the world around you, involving new vision for social responsibility and for professional activities that have a serious point to make, and a light way of going about it. You continue to morph in the way that you bond with others for both personal and business relationships. Your own sense of self-satisfaction is thereby enhanced, so that you also better partner yourself and your own deep intention going forward.  You are committed to a form of service that leaves your ego out of the picture, while yet your personality becomes the fundamental fulcrum of the spirit in which it is performed, to the ultimate advantage of everyone around you.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 21) This is yet another big month for transformation on many different levels, Leo. You are in the midst of a sensitive and potent lunar cycle, yet one having a definite edge, and representing a quest for action in support of soul intention. Your self-expression is studied and slowed down right now, perhaps in order that you might examine more closely what you are producing and your underlying motivation in so doing. You are occupied with idealistically looking within yourself for a better understanding of your own inner workings, and for clues to removing barriers to intimate connection with significant others. As you investigate and make necessary changes in habitual patterns, you might begin to notice that there is no way to separate yourself and your beliefs from the evidence that you gather; you are an indissoluble part of all that you observe.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 21) This month continues the beat, Virgo, of transformational change that you have been dancing to all year. Uranus and Pluto, still upending your world, have precipitated major results including dramatic changes in your creative self-expression, and are still a big part of this month’s swirl of cosmic energies.  Your partnership dynamic has been alternately fluctuating and deeply intentioned, and while somewhat filled with rose-colored visions of extraordinary outcomes is also seriously practical in its scope. Your intuition too is sizzling with enlightenment for new life direction, and nearly takes you to right within the psyches of others. You are making a serious application of effort to dig further into your own psychological territory as you encounter limitations on one level of family entanglements or home based concerns, simultaneous with breakthrough on another. You may also find yourself taking on issues for the way that you resource yourself, whenever it is that you are required to.

LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 22) The rhythm of revolutionary change continues, Libra. The tidal pulse of major transformation keeps pounding away at the very underpinnings of your life and your personality, seemingly without letup. You remain full to the brim with lingering vibrations from recent months sparking attitudes of cosmic intentionality. These seem to come from outside of yourself, perhaps arriving on the wings of relationship interaction, and yet still very much hit the mark. Something about your life is irrevocably altering and the contribution of intelligent and deeply connected partners and fellow travellers contributes greatly to your own arc of development. You are magnetically pulled to visions of future circumstance that even though largely insubstantial; you can nearly see and feel with your physical senses. Practical magic is one watchword for your current transitional state, as you leave behind one layer of consciousness for what turns out to be quite another.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) This is your time of coming into yourself in a new way, Scorpio. Relationship is powerful for you right now, and allows you to better understand where you are coming from. The point of view of active partners helps to pave the way to your own ongoing transformation in communicative outreach and service orientation. This current cycle leads you to exploring the mechanics of public achievement. You are lucky with your outer world circumstance, which also gives you the space to more deeply investigate private areas and concerns. You are simultaneously taking your creativity to the next level, by placing it in harness to others, laying it at their feet for the benefit of partners and of society itself. Most importantly, you are discovering a component of soul intention that complements every gesture you make in the line of more ordinary mundane layers of commitment.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 20) The beat goes on, Sagittarius, and it seems like the intensity has barely diminished, although perhaps subtly shifted in direction. During this rather intense time, you continue to deal with a flood of radical change. You are exercising increased spiritual creativity in everything that you do. A sense of responsibility to the ordinary requirements of daily life might at times feel like a burden, and yet suddenly it morphs into joy at serving your higher calling. Your understanding of soul-level mission that you have been feeling these last few months has become a factor in assessing how to determine your true priorities; you are finding that some formerly important details and previously treasured habits could fall away, while the ones that you choose to embrace are those that accord with where your inner guidance is directing you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) This is still the season of your transformation, Capricorn, as it has been all year thus far. The recent crescendo of radical evolutionary change has lessoned slightly and perhaps turned more profoundly inward. You have mellowed into the changes of this timeframe, accepted your seat on the roller coaster, and even begun to enjoy the view of the moving landscape before your ever-widening gaze. Partners provide an interesting catalyst for your own inner exploration that has taken you into some very deep and far down places already in the weeks and even months preceding this current one. You have a creative tension available to you now that takes inner presence into outer achievement almost without conscious effort. Your intuitional inspiration descends from angel guidance and grows easier to understand with each fresh experience of insight.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 17) Your metamorphosis continues, Aquarius. This has been a season of adjustment with multiple levels of progress, and yet your changes are not complete. This month represents another dip into the transformational tide, rushing through you toward an unknown endpoint, subtly molding and fluffing you in the direction that the cosmos seems to want your life to take. There is a call from deep inside, and you feel that you must heed it, or else falter and remain floating the shallows. This is along the lines of a different and more personal educational experience than anything that has come before. Your future orientation is summoned to a higher responsibility than the mundane task list. This sense of your mission of learning and spiritual growth that has overtaken you is more profound, and will eventually lead you out of your current conundrums and into greater clarity of purpose.

PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19) This is another quite interesting monthly cycle for you, Pisces, in regard to your ongoing changes, still incomplete. Each passing day you better hone in on what exactly you are up to. Your matrix of connection to friends and to your social setting has been long evolving, and future plans are similarly transforming as you come to a place of soul-level intentionality. Your idea of what lies ahead suddenly depends for its guiding principle on what makes you feel good inside. The mundane daily run of events become, through another way of looking at things, of sacred portent. Being out in the world has served you well lately, and yet you find that the accolades of the marketplace only represent one part of the story; these fade to meaninglessness unless they allow you to make an all-important connection to Spirit inside you.
