EP 5: Encounter Your Intuition - Guided Meditation
It is recommended that you are sitting or lying down somewhere private to listen to this episode as I will take you through a guided meditation. Remember:▲ Try to ask open ended questions...▲ Be in a calm "green light" state before trying to encounter your intuition.. ▲ Intuition doesn't always use words to communicate, if symbols come through to you then identify how you first interpreted it, before the rational mind got involved...what does it mean to you, not what you think it should mean… ▲ write down what came through and create an reminder in your calendar three weeks from now to review…it usually makes more sense with time behind it…▲ It’s normal to struggle with this your first few goes. It will be difficult for you to discern the cloud of thoughts that is your fears speaking and your own guidance system, but it’s yours for a reason, it can always be accessed with a bit of intention…
EP 4: Redefining the Occult - Focus Protocols
Yesterday I made a post about my fascination in the occult on Facebook and - perhaps unsurprisingly - it caused a stir with many people advising me I needed to find Jesus or that science and data are the only truths. While this only cemented my point that we tend to crush ideas that don't confirm to our own I wanted to clarify how I define the occult and why it is that I believe it is a beneficial practice.To me I see the occult is a simple and effective way to achieve deep states of intentional focus. The human mind is untapped potential, and there is little question that beliefs and perceptions determine the fringe at which reality is experienced.Any tool that can assist an individual to create new thought patterns or beliefs that are useful to them, should logically be integrated. This is not about being a witch in front of a cauldron casting evil spells on people (on the contrary, when I know a loved one or friend is in need I will think of them thriving, feeling, well. This is no different to prayer in many ways), this is about training the mind to become an active participant in thought patterns. While you can achieve this through religion or reiki or crystals or dancing naked outside or what not, the reason I like the occult practices specifically, is because it incorporates rituals.And what I have observed is that across all cultures and borders, species wide - humans love rituals and incorporate them into everything we do - from marriage, to new years, to deaths! Our ancestors used them and we continue to subscribe to even the most ridiculous ones - like diamond rings for engagements to crossing ourselves to ward off danger. They help us to quell anxieties, bond, and give us a sense of meaning. I have found rituals especially beneficial in getting my busy mind to settle into focused thought patterns - something I would otherwise struggle with. I achieve something similar when I meditate but I find rituals are slightly more fun then meditation and are ESPECIALLY handy if you are a kinaesthetic or visual learner. So to me "magic" works not because there's anything woo woo about it but because it essentially intentionally focuses your mind even but for a moment by using the power of rituals.And when you learn to focus your thoughts in such a way and you are in integrity and have love for others, everybody benefits. When we soften to these ideas, and accept that science and faith are both just trying to make meaning of the magic that is life, we can begin to unlock the parts of ourselves we have perhaps been led to fear or have lost in the texts of time. Share this episode if it feels aligned.
A cautionary tale of perspectives. In this episode I share how some insecurities led to me perceiving things that didn't exist, a streak of business betrayals, and an optimist's take on the pandemic.
EP 2: Dealing with Financial Anxiety
Anxiety and fear are emotions all of us will come to experience at some stage in our lives, for some of us it is something that we deal with on a daily basis. In this episode I share three of my personal experiences dealing with panic and fear, including financial anxiety and how to handle it as it comes up.
EP 1: How to Feel Worthy | Success & Depression
Most of us view our sense of self worth as this elusive thing that is difficult to come by, let alone sustain. Many of us find ourselves manically chasing the success, accolades and money in pursuit of a sense of sense worth - but what happens when you find yourself at the top of the mountain depressed and unfulfilled. In this episode I unravel how to stretch into a sense of sense worth.
