Spirit is Calling
Are You Listening
Beloved Six Sensories,
been an intense and at times threatening past few months for many of us,
either due to devastation from weather, unexpected job losses, home-grown
terrorism, sicknesses, accidents, government financial defaults, or just
plain daily disappointments, and I've had a number of clients email my
office to say they just can't seem to rise above the undertow of negativity
and fear all of this stress has brought about and now feel terribly
depressed or worse, and really stuck. I can relate. I, too, have faced more
than a few serious disappointments and challenges this summer, none of
which I expected, and yes, it does leave one feeling out of control and
vulnerable… at least at first.
once we absorb the initial shocks of change, and loss, or disappointment
and begin to adjust to the upset and trauma such things bring about, it is
important to remember, on a soul level, that all changes we face carry with
them an invitation from our Spirit to move past these temporary conditions
so that we can live at a higher, more free, more honest, more authentic,
and more creative and divinely conscious level than the one we were living
before our loss or upset.
response to the many who have written to say they are stuck, or to help
those who may get stuck in the future, I'd like to share my newly acquired
technique for moving through pain and loss and connection to our Higher
Self as quickly as possible for guidance and healing. I read about it
in a book called "Just Listen" by Dr. Mark Goulston and with some
of my own small modifications I find it works well for me and I hope it
will work well for you too.
to Dr. Goulston the key to moving successfully through loss and back to
higher living is to respond to loss in the most grounded, honest, and
creative way possible. To that end, he suggests that we essentially have
three brains; a reptilian brain, or "fight or flight brain", an
emotional or feeling brain, and then our higher awareness or creative
brain. This, of course, greatly simplifies the brain and the various ways
our brains function, but for our purpose of working through upset and
trauma quickly, this simplistic understanding is enough to get us through
loss and back on track to recuperation.
order to move through the negative feelings of loss and despair and be able
to tap into your creativity and intuition, you must move from the reptilian
brain response, through the emotional response, and then on to the higher
Spiritual response as quickly as possible. Only there, in your Higher
brain, or mind, or Spirit, (my version) can you hear the voice of your
intuition and follow this inner guidance to higher ground. This sounds
difficult but in fact can be done easily by using this 5-step method to
move onward and upward when faced with upset, loss, disappointment, or any
other unpleasant situation.
by imagining that you are stepping onto a small five-step ladder, each step
leading you away from the problem and toward the intuitively guided
solution or new direction.
your eyes and take the first step, saying either to yourself or out loud,
(I prefer out loud.):

take two deep breaths.

Next, move up to the third step and say, "Oh NO!" Then take two
deep breaths. This step takes us further into the emotional and even denial
Continuing, move up to step 4 and say, "Oh Well!" This step
walks us out of denial and into an acceptance, and now detachment response.
finally step onto the top step, into your Higher Self, your Higher
Consciousness, where in your mind's eye you can see clearly once again and
Now what is the solution?" This final step opens the door to full
acceptance of the event and now gives us access to a receptive intuitive
first these five steps may take a while to move through, but if you
practice them like a drill, moving more and more quickly through them each
time you face an upset, the more quickly you can calm the emotional waters
and the undertow of fear, and get connected with your Intuitive Spirit who
can them guide you safely and in a grounded way to a productive creative
response and move you to higher ground.
as a review:
Oh &%$#)!!! (Or whatever expletive you prefer)
"Oh my God!" Then breathe.
"OH NO!!" Then breathe.
"OH well." Then breathe.
"OK." Then breathe a few times.
"Only then ask your Spirit, "Now what is the next step?"
then listen, breathe, be quiet, and wait.
response may come from your Spirit right away or it may not. But at least
you are out of the floundering and devastated mode of fight or flight and
the powerlessness of victim mentality and are now primed to hear your
intuition when it does present you with new direction.
can repeat this 5-step process when responding to any loss, crisis,
disappointment, upset, or surprise that you do not like. In fact, the
more you repeat it the more it will start to become your automatic response
to upset and the more quickly you will get back into the best possible
flow, no matter what has happened.
forget to breathe and listen at the end of the drill.
make your intuition even more clear, you can also place your hand over your
heart after you say, "OK, What is the next step?" and answer out
loud, "My heart says…." And fill in the blank.
simple drill works to keep you from feeling helpless, hopeless, ambushed,
stuck, and in victim mode and keeps you moving toward the light, connecting
with love to your Higher Self, Your Spirit for guidance, as you move
the next time you find yourself upset, or worked up, and out of touch with
your intuition and Spirit. Call it the 5-step ladder to intuitive guidance.
I know it will help you under stress as it does for me.
closing, I want to express my deepest support to all in transition and I
send extra prayers for healing to all those who have suffered extreme
losses, injuries, wounding, hurts, great and small recently and need our
love and assistance right now. I'd also like to ask all Six-Sensories
reading this to please join me in sending love and prayers to all.
deep appreciation for your Spirit and with all my love.
