Going Into the Wilderness of Your Intuition

June 22nd, 2012

 

It is true that what is familiar and known is comfortable. We know what to expect. We know how the story goes and we know how we will respond.
But there are times throughout our lives when we must leave what we know, and venture into the unknown. And although there is no map for this vast wilderness, you are not wholly unprepared. You have a guide: your intuition.

 

Instead of relying on a map to guide you, you learn to “follow your inner guidance.” This incredible voice leads you on a journey that is all your own. What you discover along the way is your real self, your strength and what you love. Unrefined and unmapped, the wilderness of your intuition leads you to discoveries and experiences you never would have had if you stayed where you were comfortable.

What journey will you take that leads you to new discoveries and opportunities? Imagine what’s out there for you if you step out and venture away from what’s familiar and comfortable, trustingly following your intuition into the vast unknown. There is no need to be fearful or doubt your path. Your reliable guide, intuition knows exactly what you need and how to get it. Just trust its guidance with confidence and yes, exuberance, to grow and bring new awareness into your being and life.

 

Using The Power of Silence to Develop Your Intuition for Guidance

November 14th, 2011

 I have observed that few people can stand prolonged silence, especially when confronted by different choices. In order to be able to access intuition on regular basis, it is crucial that we learn to feel comfortable with silence around us and in us.

People mostly try to fill up their surroundings with noise, chatter, radio, music and several other ting tang noises so as not to listen within.  It is when we begin to embrace silence as a source of expanding our being to draw deeply from within, that we begin to experience real sense of connection and peace. We also begin to feel stronger and more in control without having to control anything. WE SIMPLY ARE!

One way to start using the power of silence is to listen intently to someone talking to you without interruption. When you listen intently, you’ll be able to intuitively pick up certain vibrations that you otherwise might miss if you were too busy trying to get your own message across. Most times we are too much in our head than in our inner being, inner self. It is when we come down a peg or two as I say, into that realm of allowing that we can fully connect with our inner guidance. This is especially important in times of changes. When a change is eminent, we often either want to charge forward and make things happen, or we doubt our ability to cope with the change.

Neither of these reactions are helpful to us. Because for one thing, we run the risk of running  into unnecessary difficulties, for not having thought things out. For another, we become despondent and block our creativity. Creativity and intuition go hand in hand. This is what impact our lives and ensures consistent flow in true exchange of abundance.

If you’d like to hear how you can delve more into your own creative power generated by your intuition, I encourage you to join me tonight  for a special experience of Creative awareness. Listen in as I interview one of the world’s international renowned artist, Freydoon Rassouli, the Fusionartist about his Sublime paintings and how his intuition directs him.

Go here now to watch our intro video and register for the talk. I promise you, you’ll learn a thing or two that you can apply to own your intuitive guidance.

I look forward to connecting with you tonight.

Love Always

When there’s No Enemy Within, The Enemies Outside Cannot Hurt You!

October 20th, 2011

We all go through periods of epiphany which help shift things for us. I believe these to be wonderful moments of deep recognition that can transform our being on an intrinsic level..  

In the last six years, I have made some very clear conscious decisions about my life and how I interact with people. One of these decisions was never to argue with people, because it is energy draining and never resolves anything. It is my conviction that arguing over any matter always  leaves all parties frustrated no matter who has the last word. 

Another thing about arguments is that we argue because we want the other person to accept our opinion and thereby gives us a sense of our greatness.

Now think about this for a moment: how do you feel when someone agrees with what you say? Don’t you have a sense of relief and maybe an underlying pride and validation? Now be honest about this and stop to reflect about these questions.  

And now to the other questions: How do you feel when someone disagrees with your opinion? Do you feel slighted, threatened, angry or can you simply acknowledge the difference of opinions without having any residual feelings of “being trodden upon” and kicked to the curb?

If you’re like most people, you will feel connected with the person who “sides” with you and resent the one who disagrees with you.

Now what does this have to do with todays’ title: When there’s no Enemy Within, the Enemies Outside Cannot hurt You and how does this relate to handling difficult changes with our Intuition?

Actually a lot!

1. When we are experiencing a difficult change in our life, most times we are over sensitized. This fact often does not render accepting advice from other people easy. Our imminent frame of mind renders us vunerable and even when we know on one level of awareness that our friends or partner mean well, it still does not make it easy for us to swallow our pride and agree with them.

In this case, the enemy within are our own insecurities and frustrations. So how can we handle these feelings? First let me say that start by letting go of the old adage: “Attack is the best form of defense”. This will not get you far and will only make things harder for you.

As long as you hold on to your defense, you cannot access your intuition. This is because the anger or the feelings of frustration hold you hostage and our intuition being of a finer vibration cannot cut through that thick wall.

The solution is to listen to the other person by observing what you’re sensing and being with those feelings. Here’s an example. While out with my husband and some friends, my husband complained about some pains in his left leg. I listened as he talked without saying anything. After a while he turned to me and said, why aren’t you saying anything. I replied that because I know he wouldn’t listen to what I have to say, so why should I say anything. He immediately went on the defense, saying: yes, you never listen to me about other matters either.

At that moment, I observed myself and what was going on within me. As I observed, I saw mÿself recoiling and then becoming aware of my feelings. The more I observed what was happening inside me the calmer I became and finally the feelings dissolved as I was able to accept part of what he said as correct and left it at that. My acknowledging the truth gave me a new perspective of the situation. I didn’t feel the need to respond to his attack. Suddenly I felt a rush of heat around my solar plexus and heard a tiny voice said: ”you’re bigger than that and there’s no need to defend yourself“.  

2. Don’t we all love to be right or should I say, why do we recent being proven wrong?  I have found that the more I put my focus on someone’s feelings and listen with an open heart to their reasoning, the easier it is for me to let down my guard. In this receptive mode, I can readily access my intuiive guidance without feeling the need to be right. Invariably, the other person either admit their own insecurities or let go of the jabbing.

When we entertain a strong connection with our inner force, you feel stonger and outward circumstances no longer unhinge us easily. This is because, we begin to recognize on a deeper level of our being that our outer life is truly a mirror of our own inner fears. Become master of you inner life and you master your outer circumstances with calmness.

With our intuition, we can listen to its message in such moments and use its guidance to let go of anger and irritation.

One thing that might help is to ask yourself: Would you rather be right or be happy and peaceful? I know which one I choose. The truth is that when we are able to accept all our experiences as opportunities and pathways to becoming more of our true being, we create a stronger bond with our intuiion which is there to support us in all our challenges.

  
The best way to live is to be so connected to your inner guidance that you no longer need  validation from others. By becoming inwardly strong and clear, you’ll find that other people’s opinion matters lesser and lesser and you no longer feel the need to convince people of your opinion.

I make an effort to clear out my inner closet regualrly. This helps me revisit some buried issues and wipe them out. The clearer our inner mind gets, the more prominent our intuition becomes in our life.

Share your thoughts on this.

How Changing Your Being Can Change Your World

September 30th, 2011

Wow, this has certainly been a week of high energy and deep fulfilment!
First, out of the blues I received an invitation from Hay House Author Eldon Taylor, to participate in a world wide campaign with the opportunity of attracting millions of visitors to my website and help improve people’s lives around the globe.

Second, I attended a magical live event which practically bulldozed whatever remaining concern I might have had about following your unique voice. The experience of that event opened my eyes and heart to the recognition of what it means to be truly committed to and believe in whatever you sense to be right on a deep level of your being and just following through.

Now, you might say it’s common knowledge that it requires real commitment and staunch belief in what you’re doing to achieve great results. And yet, if we all know this, why do so many fail to see things through or fall short of their visions?

I believe that the answer to these questions can help change our inner awareness for real success to not just happen, but to sustain its continuous progress. The answer can also clarify why we need to fully align our inner level of vibration with what it is that we’re wanting to bring to life in our world.

Let me clarify this for you a little bit further.

Have you ever noticed how the energy around you seems to flatten out when you’re feeling down or when you have a flu or a short illness? What happens in such circumstances is that as we recoil, feeling the need to either make some sense of what is happening to us, or to nurture our health, we intuitively slow down all our internal vibration so that we burn less energy and only expend that which is essential for our survival.

While the outer cosmic energy continues to strenghten our body, we hang in there until we are ready to re-emerge and fully engage ourselves once again. I call this the time of  ”zero grounding” because it is as if in that period of time everything in you comes to a screeching halt.

What we often term as an impasse is nature’s way of helping us to regain some form of balance and harmony within us. Because the answer to changing our being to change our world is consciously finding the balance and harmony to be in the flow of life. And the more we find that balance, the more we are in harmony with ourself, the easier it becomes to change our world through our beingness.

One of my favourite psychologist was the Swiss Psychologist Carl Jung. He was very conscious of the importance of balance and harmony for our existence. He warned that modern society rely too strongly on science and logic and could greatly benefit by integrating spirituality and appreciation of the unconscious realm into the physical world. Although he was a theoretical psychologist and practicing clinician,  most of his life and work was spent exploring other unseen realms such as intuition. 

A very natural way of finding that balance is to become attuned more with our intuition. This safeguards against anxiety, unwanted presssure and allows to attain inner peace.

Which brings me to my third wonderful expereince this week- afterall, every magical thing happens in threes – YEAH!

The crown of this amazing week, so far has been my debut first radio talk show with the host Nicole Whitney, which took place on Wednseday 28.09.11 at 12 noon Pacific Time.

I am now creating all these wonderful opportunities as I continue to keep inner sense of balance and harmony of being. I feel deep gratitude for the new changes and developments in my life. They not only keep me on my toes, but most importantly they keep me inwardly alert.

Love Always!

Attaining Greatness is Facing Our Deepest Weaknesses

September 21st, 2011

Do you know that most of us kid ourselves about where we currently are and why we are struggling to move on?
Put bluntly, the reason is vanity, which blocks us from looking squarely at our weaknesses and honestly doing something about them.

I know, you’re probably thinking, “I’m not like that, I’m certainly aware of my weaknesses and try to work on them. This isn’t what I mean. And my answer to your working on them is, are you really…?!
Try not to get irritated by this question. Remain open and be honest about what comes up for you. Here’s an example to illustrate my point.

If you’ve ever had someone pointed out something about your character or shortcomings to you, what did you do? Were you accepting of their remarks and thanked them? Because you appreciated the opportunity to learn about yourself. Or did you “react” and became defensive?

If you’re like most of us, you probably did the latter.

I’m not trying to make you feel bad about yourself, but I certainly want you to get clear and become conscious about what could be responsible for the struggles you may still be experiencing with the changes in your life.

In February 2005, during a short illness, I had a near death experience (NDE) which forced me to refocus my life. It also made me recognise what true living is all about.

My work and life had given me deep satisfaction which made me acknowledge my achievements. Suddenly the realisation hit me like a thunderstorm that these were merely “scaffoldings” temporarily holding my outer edifice together, but not my LIFE.

I came to the simple conclusion that everything and nothing is of value, if you fail to develop natural inner strength. For therein lies the foundation of true value.

Inner strength is portrayed by the way we handle or face unpleasant self confrontations. By this I mean, it is never smart and least of all, productive to excuse any weaknesses you may have. Saying such things as “oh yes I know we all have our weaknesses and heaven knows that I’m not perfect but… who is?” is simply a camouflage which never helps us become the great beings we are meant to be.

Do you see what you’re doing there? You’re taking the focus off your issues and minimizing its weight. You may think that there’s nothing wrong in doing this, but I can assure you that this isn’t the best way to evolve as a conscious individual and attract abundance. In fact, it only fosters continuous indulgence of your weaknesses and blocks off true happiness and lasting success.

We all find various “little” ways to fool ourselves and thereby ignore our weaknesses until they fester deep within. Once this happens, it is difficult to attain true inner greatness or lasting happiness. For only by facing our weaknesses can we let go of what holds us back from moving forward.

This is especially true when it comes to handling changes successfully, because antime you resist or recent something, your intuition is showing you what you need to work on. Be glad and embrace it.

Reflection
What Weaknesses are you keeping in your closet? Begin addressing them consciously now and observe how things start to improve all around for you. I know this because I’ve experienced it myself.

To attain Inner Greatness strive for these qualities: love, grace and humility.
Inspirational Quote
“You have reached the pinnacle of success as soon as you become uninterested in money, compliments or publicity.” – Eddie Rickenbacker

Saying Yes to Receive Your Abundance

September 12th, 2011

September 7th is a very special day for me. It is a day of retreating and remembering that as a woman, I am here for a particular purpose. To use my feminine attributes in a consciencious way that evokes harmony of balance, love, ingenuity and forthright presence in my surroundings.

And you dear friend, what is your current situation?
Are you still waiting for something to change in your life, or are you stalling to make the changes you know it is time to make?

Be ready to move on when you know that it’s time to move on. Don’t let doubt or wariness stop you.

Do you know that the minute you heistate to take the steps you know you ought to take, your energy of momentum gets shut down and loses its strong vibration.

All crises and changes are precusors to breakthroughs in life and catalysts for our growth. If you think about any changes or crises you’ve experienced in the past, you’ll recognize that they were exactly what you needed at the time. Because the crises forced you to delve deeper into your inner resources and become stronger, even if you didn’t realize it at the time.

I believe that on a Soul level, consciously or unconsciously, we design our life to instigate our spiritual growth. We all are seeking primarily the conscious connection with our spirit, our true core. Once you’re able to activate that connection and retain it, you’ll be amazed at how simpler your life becomes and you no longer feel vulnerable and weak.

One of the things that I’m sure about is that you have to claim the abundance you want in your life. In other words, there’s is no point having wishful thinking and day dreaming about what your life could be like, if only…..?! You have to say a resounding YES to what you sense within you needs to change.

Once you know that a change is due, be firm and don’t dilly dally on it. Find a way to start leaving the old behind you and start moving into the new you feel is the way to go.

Don’t let outward circumstances hold you back. because if you do, you’ll never break free on to the new path.

Remember that behind every human aberration, there is a spiritual aspiration trying to emerge. Rest assured that whatever your intuition is prompting you to do is right and has a reason. Even if you can’t yet understand it, you only need to trust and follow through.

Inner rigidity is often what causes struggles. It is better to remain inwardly flexible. This is the key to true happiness. Think of how a willow tree bends with the wind no matter where it blows and no matter how strong the wind gets the branches still adapt and remain strong.

Life doesn’t happen to us, it happens through us. So remain open, listen fully and trust the process. It’ll be worth its while in the long run. I assure you.

The most enriching way to grow is to embrace any changes in your life while remaining connected with the true source of knowledge to guide your path.

Would love to hear your comments and experiences below.

How to Quieten Inner Turbulence in Times of Changes

August 30th, 2011

In times of changes, we often go through “emotional roller coaster”. This actually is not surprising and need not render you over anxious. The most important thing is to realize that having some kind of anxieties is normal.

Admittedly the form of anxieties differ from situation to situation

Take for instance, someone who receives a business promotion which he or she has long dreamt about. Although initially overjoyed, the anxiety of self scrutiny will eventually come up. This is because as humans, we all want to give our best to whatever we do. When others put their faith in us, we don’t want to disappoint them. So what do we do? We begin doubting our ability and ask ourselves if we are truly qualified for the work, or if we can meet expectations.

Or someone who is suddenly faced with branching out on their own either because they have been laid off work or they simply have decided to go a new direction. I am one for firing up people who make the conscious decision to take a new path. Whether out of necessity or not, it is remarkable and you should commend yourself for your courage.

Effective Ways to Quieten The Nagging Mind
1. Fears and self doubts can plague us to the extent that we lose all motivation to take action even when we know what to do. The trick is to not suppress these fears or nagging thoughts. When they occur, observe them and breathe calmly into them without denying their existence.

2. Write down all your fears and doubts on a sheet of paper and each time any of the fear or doubts rears its head, take the paper and read out the fear. Cancel it out on the paper and close your eyes cancelling it out again in your mind. Then breathe in slowly and as you slowly breathe out say to yourself: “I release the energy of (say the fear), you no longer have any hold on me”. Repeat as many times as necessary until you feel that you’ve completely released the doubt or fear. Repeat the entire process for all the list on your paper as each doubt appears.

3. After releasing all your fears and doubts, you’ll begin to feel more calmer. This is the state of mind you want to be in order to fully align with what you need to do. Without inner peace, you cannot access real answers. Inner composure prepares you for the next step. This is to connect with your intuition for guidance. Now close your eyes and ask for inner guidance for whatever it is you want, bringing only one point at a time to focus. Ask for a clear direct answer and refrain from saying such things as: should I do this…. or should I do that? Instead be precise: “Show me the best way to handle this situation so that I’m able to use my gifts productively”

Always remember that inner turbulence mirrors our vulnerabilities to us. By paying attention to these vulnerabilities and embracing them consciously, we can integrate their energy into our being and fully combine the emotional and mental energies together to redirect their path constructively. As long as we are controlled by our vulnerabilities, we will not be able to master our intuition and find the right path in life with deep satisfaction.

Begin to use the three steps and you’ll be amaze at how easier you’re able to handle any change more effectively.

Let me know your experience with this method.

Frustrated – Are Your Efforts Not getting You Anywhere?

August 19th, 2011

Sometimes when we make changes in our lives feeling confident that everything will go well, we suddenly hit a plateau despite all our efforts.
This can get you frustrated, especially when you feel that you’re doing all you can and yet, seeing little or no results.

My whole life has been riddled with constant changes. I suppose you could say that I came into this life to assimilate the meaning of changes!

When dealing with changes that we engendered, it is important to remain clear. This is why I usually ask for inner guidance before taking action. Sometimes we are so focused on what we want to have happen that we overlook what it entails to get the results we desire.

Here are Five Reasons Why Frustrations Occur:

1. You know the change is right but don’t know which direction to go
2. You don’t have a clear structure to move you forward
3. You have a structure but you are inconsistent with administering it
4. You are doing it all alone
5. You are too impatient

To help you overcome your frustrations, first give yourself credit for wanting to move forward. When stagnation occurs in our life, we stop feeling the joy of living. Making the effort to change things is keeping the dynamic of our life alive. Because making an effort to change is not only a necessity for progress, it is what helps preserve the power that we already possess.

Don’t let your frusrations keep you down. If you’re dealing with any of the above mentioned reasons for your frustration, I can assure you from my over 56 years of constant changes, that you can learn to master your change with real contentment.

Where there is a challenge, there is also a solution. You just have to be ready to find the solution.

The solutions to all the above list are to be found in the frustrations themselves!

In the first case,
1. You know the change is right but don’t know which direction to go.
Simply go within and ask for inner guidance and become attentive to what occurs around you after that. Most times, you’ll get some promptings or indications – through friends, colleagues, reports, reading etc. Stay vigilant and alert. Your intuition will guide you well, if you listen.

In the second situation,
2. You don’t have a clear structure to move you forward
Sit down and make a list of 3 things you can easily start to do to move you forward. Write down the date by which each action will be implemented and follow through adjusting as necessary. When the first three actions are completed make the next three appropriate things to follow up.

For the third frustration
3. You have a structure but you are inconsistent with implementation.
Find a coach who will hold you accountable. We all have a lot going on in the course of the day and some important things often fall through the cracks. Still, if you’re committed to making your change work for you, then you’ll need some help with being consistent at your efforts.

4. You are doing it all alone
Get support. Once again, a coach can point you in the right direction and offer you the support you require. After all, getting feedback from someone who wants you to feel good about yourself rather than beating yourself up and feeling like crap is invaluable. Because in the long run, you’ll move forward faster and more joyfully.

For the last situation
5. You are too impatient
Patient is a great virtue, which many of us are still developing. When you work with a coach, you’ll be reminded of the progress you’re making and that focus, keeps you grounded, which again keeps your momentum going while your vision and patient continue to evolve.

How to Prevent Stress Damaging Your Body During a Change

August 16th, 2011

Goog health is all we’ve got to get us through any challenges in life. Without a good health, trying to handle any change can become a nightmare.

Stresses have a way of ruining our health if we ignore paying attention to what needs to be done.

I know this first hand after experiencing my worst nerve pains of Herpes Zoster (Shingles) last Spring.

Early in the year, I had been running around depleting my energy reserves – putting finishing touches to my book Intuition Involution, running the day to day administration of my Centre and trying to find new staffs and keeping a big household going and so forth… You get the picture.

It wasn’t until I woke up one morning with an excruciating pain all on one side of my body and couldn’t go back to sleep that I realized what was wrong. Initially, my skin had been erupting with some small spots for about 2 weeks. I had preiously put this down to some skin rashes, especially as we have been combatting some ants invasion in our kitchen with some anti ants spray.

Sitting up that night in my bed, I breathed deeply and shut my eyes completely tuning in and asked what was wrong. Instantly, I got the answer: “you’ve got shingles”. Yikes, that was a blow. But I knew my intuiive guidance was right.

I decided to take control. I thought back to my past work with former Shingles patients. I told my husband what it was and said I was going to cure it.

As a former naturopathic doctor, I consulted my books and ordered all the remedies I needed and began clearing my schedules to work fully on myself.

After 3 weeks of intensive and rigorous work with: natural remedies, homeopathy, water treatments, breathwork, food supplements and changing my diet, I was completely free of all pain and the skin rashes began to clear.

Remaing Stressfree in Times of Changes

After this experience, I knew that I had to become more aware of my stress level. I decided to pay more attention to things around me that may be causing more stress for me.

Here are 5 tips to help support your body in handling stress in your life, especially when facing changes.

1. When you wake up, take 5 minutes to release any tension you may feel in your body. It is not as difficult as it may sound. Close your eyes and tune into your body. Next, feel the different part of your body by breathing slowing into the tensed parts while allowing the tension to melt away.

2. Learn to prioritize the things you need to do and don’t overcompensate with your time if you can’t finish some work. Make sure you give yourself space between each work. This way, you can restock your energy, even if it’s just for 2 minutes.

3. It is easy to go into a frenzy mode when dealing with changes. Remember to eat well and take some good food supplements. I recommend Spirulina and Vit C. Spirulina is rich in all the Vit B complex and also has some essential minerals and trace elements. It is easily absorbed by our body.

4. Make it a habit of drinking plenty of still water in the course of the day, not only to slush out toxins, but to hydrate the brain cells and decongest your blood. In times of changes, we use up more energy and get easily dehydrated.

5. Before going to bed, sit still for about 10 minutes and do some deep breathing. My favourite is the alternatiing breathing. If you’d like to know more about this, contact me at kunbi@embracingchanges.com and I’ll send you the short description.

I have learnt to not allow outside pressure to undermine my inner peace. I believe this is crucial in being able to manage changes more effectively.

Carpe Diem – With a Heartfelt Embrace!

August 8th, 2011

When a new day begins we open our heart with gratitude and joy of new possiibilities. I have found that everything we need or want is already here for us, we are only required to open ourselves and embrace it into our lives.

CARPE DIEM – Seize the Day! This is a wonderful reminder of the numereous blessings right before us and which we often ignore or take for granted.
Seizing the Day in all that it encompasses and offers. Recognizing that I am right where I need to be and fully using that awareness to the best possibility daily gives me a deep sense of connectedness with all around me.

CARPE DIEM is also a nine letter word just like INTUITION swinging and vibrating in fulfilment and completion. I believe this means that whatever we do daily ought to be done with a clear open heart free of all reservations. Allowing our intuition to be the key to unlock the fulfilment of our creation.

I wish you a day of joyful and exuberance creation.
Love Always
