Can I tell you what really pisses me off?
Being in bed, half asleep, on Monday morning, feeling crap, and barely having had 5 hours of sleep due to insomnia.
I hate insomnia.
It's caused some of the worst problems of my life to happen. Almost too effortlessly.
Dragging your heavy-ass out of bed, wacking on the cold shower just to wake up your dumbass brain is bad enough.
Then you have to quickly prepare yourself by putting on some clothes and then walking to your car while it is raining outside.
You're essentially a zombie.
You get in the car, and do your usual gratitude affirmations, in a pathetic attempt at trying to force the world to be a more merciful place…
For a while, it almost works, but then you step into the office and all hell breaks loose….and all you wanted was an extra 2 hours in bed..
Thank god for mindfulness!
Thank god for the ability to walk to my car in my morning break, and actually zone out for a few minutes, so I can actually feel the skin on my body for the first time of the day.
At times, I don't really care for the benefits of mindfulness. Whilst its good to know, I don't give a crap. You wanna know why?
All I want is to feel alive!
I want a reason to live, and mindfulness does just that. I want to feel that little burst of energy in my head, that almost intuitively says that life is meant to be happy.
I want to feel great, albeit for a measly second, so that I don't feel like running out of the office like a headless chicken at the first sign of trouble…
I want my life to mean something, and that is why I love mindfulness. I don't want to walk around on autopilot, or even worse, like a zombie.
I want to feel like sunshine.
It's like being given a key to a brand new sports-car.
All it takes is a bit of mental effort on your part, and boom, you are inside of a little piece of heaven.
It has gadgets and fantastic leather seats. It allows you to feel really safe, warm and comfortable. Heck, it has even got a nice little drinks cabinet, so you can enjoy some of that refreshing sports drink which makes you feel alive and shine.
The world is an awesome place again;-)
For what it is worth, mindfulness is a great way to bring some zest back into your life, get some mental energy back, all by taking up just a few short minutes. And I'm not talking about sitting down with your legs crossed (unless you're a pro).
I'm talking about making a weird, but essential, daily commitment to actually putting your body to rest, and deliberately tuning out.
Doing this on a regular basis kicks some serious ass, and your brain will love you for it!
But do you want to know what's even better? Combining it with a second exercise to super charge your intuition.
This is the first time I've ever written this, so pay close attention:
Mindfulness on its own = great.
Mindfulness + Oneness = Seriously awesome intuition!
Wanna know why?
When you become mindful, your brainwaves begin to reduce the electrical activity, allowing you to be in the mid to deep alpha range (borderline theta). This is also the range for psychic ability.
All you do, therefore, is become mindful and then when the timing is right, become at, ‘one' with everything.
It sounds weired (I know) but let me explain in more detail, so you get to learn this awesome variation.
First, the mindfulness bit
1. Sit down or lie down and feel your heartbeat.
2. Learn to feel the beating of your heart, and when your imagination dies down, transfer your attention to your breathing, or the outside noise.
3. As you become more relaxed, just notice any images you have, and let them pass you by.
4. After a short while, you will feel very mindful, and will even feel energy flowing into your stomach area. You will have opened your Solar Plexus Chakra (non-physical vortex).
5. Keep this up, until you feel little energy bursts in your mind, which will be your cue for step 2
And now the oneness bit (step 2)
6. After being mindful for a while, and increasing mental energy, learn to shift your attention from the noise (breathing or outside) to the blackness of your closed eyelids.
7. This takes a bit of time to get used to, but imagine you are one with the blackness. See the blackness as a part of your EGO, as something that is with your body, just as your arms and legs are. Something that you could move.
And of course, we are not just talking about any part of the balckness, but the whole lot, so you may need to use your peripheral vision while doing this.
8. Done correctly and after a short while, you may feel a deep love emanate from your Heart. What is actually happening, is that you are opening up your Heart Chakra, and feeling that, ‘connectedness' to the multiverse.
By doing this on a regular basis will ensure that you not only improve your mindfulness skills, but also increase your intuition as well.
And this intuition will go wherever you go. You can even begin to test it, to see how well something is before you have seen it.
In the bedroom
Lets say, for example, you are trying to find a missing dollar, and you have dropped it somewhere.
You could ask yourself if you will find it in the bedroom if you go searching for it. Notice the Heart area when you ask this question. If you feel little love, or no love at all, there is a high chance that the missing dollar is not in the bedroom.
On the other hand, if you feel a decent chunk of love pouring from your Heart, there is a good chance that you will find this missing dollar.
I recently had an experience of this.
I have recently developed a stupid habit of putting all of my loose change on one of my shelves. After each weekend, I would pour loads of small change, which included 10p's and 20p's onto my shelf. Needless to say, it looks like one of those coin games in a casino.
I needed to find a quick £1 coin, so I was moving the coins left and right.
Couldn't find one.
I then began to use my intuition. I simply said to myself, that I will find a £1 coin. As soon as I did this, I could feel love emanating from my Heart Chakra, which was an indication to me that I was searching in the right place.
Lo and behold, I found one. Needless to say, I felt quite excited. And the other good news, my faith had increased;-)
By practising these two exercises side-by-side will not only allow you to become better at practising mindfulness and seeing the oneness with your eyes closed, but will also allow you to develop your intuition very quickly as well, which means that you can develop your 6th sense which will help you in your daily life.
Developing your intuition while practising mindfulness can be a great way of improving other aspects of your life. However, if you find that mindfulness in and of itself is something that you find difficult to achieve, there is another way you can increase your intuition.
Gerald O'Donnell has produced 2 courses which allows you to listen with your ears to guided instructions with relaxing music, which can also improve your intuition. For more details on the ARVARI courses including my review, please click here.
Till next time
P.S. Combining oneness and mindfulness is a great way of improving your intuitive ability. Not only will it allow you to become mindful relatively quickly, it will also allow you to develop your gut instinct as well.
However, mindfulness isn't for everyone, and sometimes you will struggle to quieten your inner chatter. You may need to be helped to become relaxed. The ARVARI courses can be a great way in order for you to become relaxed quickly. To find out more details, please click here.
