Intuition, creativity and energy
Expanded consciousness move us out of our lower mind into the higher mind where intuition, creativity and greater insight live. Engaging the energy of higher consciousness also puts us in deeper connection with our spiritual essence helping to center and ground us in a place where fear and stress can dissolve.
Five senses acclimate to the material world
Our five senses draw our attention to the outer physical world. When we have a predominately outer directed focus we look for our inner needs to be filled through material sources. This is usually a short lived and unsatisfying solution. This orientation also tends to lead to blame, criticism, judgments, and compulsivity (repetitive behaviors expecting a different outcome).
Being outwardly directed tends to produce reliance on a spiritual being external to ourselves. We beseech this Greater Being to bestow favors upon us –and we continue to define ourselves through the physical, roles and material possessions. This way of being is one of limited consciousness. Paradoxically, it is a mind set that both begins and ends in fear. An outer focus leaves us up one day down the next with no center to hold on to.
Intuition, expanded consciousness and inner focus helps navigate change with ease
Life is change. Consciousness that is attached to the outer world does not help us a great deal with the cycles of change. In addition, it does not help us to increase our capacity to function in the world in a meaningful way that leads to true peace, joy & happiness.
Our sixth sense draws our attention inward and assists us to truly find the means to resolve issues, release struggle and longing and receive the true fulfillment of our deepest desires. This inner path allows us to examine thoughts, feelings and beliefs that lead to problems. It opens the way to creative problem solving. Expanding our consciousness beyond the physical and material world awakens you to who you truly are. From there you can transcend limitations, expand creative ability, and step into true power, tolerance, understanding and vitality.
Intuition provides guidance for all aspects of life
Proper alignment and attunement of the energies of body, mind and spirit provides us with a clear and present awareness. This awareness allows you to know what is good for you, as well as to attract to you those things that assist you to be happy and healthy.
You can become more conscious of what robs you of your natural healthy state and eliminate the sources of your struggles. Instead of learning just another technique or take on another method of learning that feels like a burden, you can identify the roots of your reactions and difficulties and change them permanently.
One of the things I especially like about becoming attuned to our personal energy is that it helps to bring us into a mindful, “present moment space” where we can develop a new relationship with our bodies and minds to create health and happiness from the inside out!
Expanded consciousness brings balance to life and helps to ride the waves of life with more grace and less struggle. We have an innate capacity for joy, pleasure, harmony and a balanced spiritual toughness that goes largely untapped. These inner capabilities can help us to find pleasure in everyday life no matter what is going on around us. It is not that we do not care or will not act when needed. It is that we meet challenges with resiliency while wearing the world lightly.
Many people search externally for purpose and meaning in life. Those things can only emerge through a deeper connection within ourselves. Having practices that quiet our minds and connect and develop an expanded consciousness provides the means and the path. Meditation, energy work and learning how to manage the subtle energy of the chakras are all practices to go beyond the average mind and develop consciousness.
