OMG! I am so much happier now that I am 39!

Well, actually, I feel pretty much the same as I did a few days ago when I was still 38.  BUT I do like getting older because I noticed a very interesting pattern in my life  since I started following my intuition: the older I get, the happier I am!

Things were not always like that.  In fact, I used to have a very tumultuous life.  When I would get together with my best friend, it would often take me hours to related all the catastrophes that had fallen upon me in the last few weeks…

But becoming intuitive changed all that.  I stopped turning in circles, always making the wrong turns, and finally got my life on the “good track”.

The most consistent result I have seen from learning to master and leverage my intuition has been a steady stream of improvements in my daily life.   I didn’t win the lottery but I sure feel like it!  Following my intuition has given me more satisfaction, fulfillment and enjoyment that I ever dreamed possible.  And honestly, I can’t wait to see where it’s going to take me next!

Those pesky things we call “mistakes”

womenmapA nice perk of my intuitive skills is that I am able to sense when someone is on the “right track”.  Meaning that they’re going the right way towards what they want.  I can also tell when they are turning in circles or completely stuck.

Sometimes, I will hear people describe what they considered a “mistake” that happened after trying to follow their intuition.  Usually, what they mean is that things did not AT ALL go the way they had in mind.

And yet, I can’t tell you how often I intuitively feel that everything is fine and this was not a mistake.  Of course, unless I am in a private session with a client, I don’t say that out loud.

So where does that discrepancy comes from?  Well, of course, I could be completely off my rocker and the event was indeed a mistake…Or, more often than not, the story isn’t over yet!  What looked like a mistake at the time was actually a shortcut towards something better.  But that something is not here yet so it’s impossible to evaluate the “outcome” right now.

To me, the full cycle of following one’s intuition includes the small hints we get before we make a decision, how we feel while we’re taking the decisions and the final outcome, which sometimes takes weeks, months or even years to come!  By the time you throw all this into the equation, many of those “mistakes” actually turn out to be great decisions.

Listening to our intuition can be confusing in the short term but it is always right in the end.

“Our deepest fear is that we are poweful beyond measure”

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is
that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness
that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are
a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is
nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel
insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were
born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just
in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we
unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are
liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates
others.”

Following your intuition: Are you Driven or Inspired???

I admit it: I was "driven" for most of my life…My school teachers and employers would tell you that I worked hard and that I was determined.  And indeed, I got a lot of things accomplished in rather adverse circumstances.   

But, years later, all these things ended up feeling empty.  What was driving me forward was not inspiration, but desperation.  I was so worried about life in general that I kept making lists of things that I needed to do in order to be happy and then rush to complete them as fast as humanly possible. 

My life was a rat race that I could never win!

I feel eternally grateful that something happened to stop me in my tracks.  Otherwise I could have lived my own life like this: hurried, accomplished and miserable.  While I was pregnant, I underwent a spiritual awakening which turned on my Empath and Intuitive skills all at once. 

Suddenly, I could see that there was a LOT more going on that I thought.  And for a while there, I was completely paralyzed.  My system was broken and no amount of lists could help me.  I  didn't even know what should be on the list! 

The thing with Intuition is that once you start listening to it, it becomes really hard to ignore it.  And that can be seen as either a good thing or a bad thing…For example, I decided to redo my kitchen cabinet doors, oh that must have been 3 years ago.  And I just finished them a few weeks ago! 

If I had been "driven" by desperation, I would have gotten it done as quickly as possible.   But instead my Intuition always directed me to wait for inspiration, so as to get it done as happily as possible.  In fact, when I tried to force it and ignore my intuition, everything
would go wrong and I'd end up dropping the hammer on my toes! 

Yes, it took a long time.  But along the way I had hundreds of amazing insights about that kitchen that I would not have gotten if I had finished it in two weekends.  I got creative ideas on how to do things more efficiently.  I changed the colors I had in mind many times until I found the perfect one which I now adore.  And every brush stroke left me with such a sense of fulfillment.  

This process of inspiration is pervasive in my life now.  And yet, once in a while I get caught in my old habits and try to get something done fast, just because it should be done.  Fortunately, that doesn't go very far until my Intuitive sense kicks in and reminds me that there is nothing valuable about action unless it's filled with meaning.

Business Intuition: Redefining Success

Let me ask you this:
– If your company is making money but your customer are dissatisfied, are you being successful?
– If your CEO is working 80 hours a week and is on the brink of a heart attack, are you being successful?
– If you experience high turn over, absenteeism or alcohol in the workplace, are you being successful?

We live in a fabulously rich country and yet most people are unhappy with their jobs, work more hours a week and have less vacation days than any other industrial country like Japan, Canada or Britain and they don’t feel they can achieve life/work balance. 

How long can we keep this up?  Burning out brilliant minds, breaking up marriages and financing costly medical plans to cover stress induced illnesses.  This is not a sustainable strategy for business success.  And yet, we keep trying to define corporate success in terms a “net profit no matter what” approach.

But at some point, we’re scraping the bottom of the barrel.  Profit margins are shrinking, jobs are lost to outsourcing or downsizing and we’re replacing quality with quantity when it comes to hours worked.  As if pedaling faster in the wrong direction could somehow lead us to a successful destination.

So what now?  Slowly but surely, some businesses have realized that rested executives make better decisions, happy employees are more productive and eager to satisfy customers and happy customers are loyal and bring more business.  Even if this means more time off, flexible schedules, job sharing, training and other expenses that target a simple concept: happiness.

Sustainable business success is not just about the financial bottom line.  It’s about creating inviting, inspiring and supportive work environments so that every employee can thrive, both personally and professionally, while creating new venues for business profits.  A business works much better when it works for everyone involved.

But how do you find those great ideas that can turn your boat around and fuel sustainable business success?  That’s where business intuition comes in.  There is no technique that will work for every business.  But there is always something that will work for your company.  You just have to find it.  And it must take into account the state of your industry, your company culture, your financial resources and so many other factors. 

How can you possibly compile all these critical factors without using your intuition or what most CEOs call their gut feelings?  When you’re tapping into your intuition, you are freed from rational left brain limitations which constantly argue that everything is too expensive or impossible.  Instead, you are exploring the creative right brain which handles complexity through abstract thinking and creativity. 

That’s where you’ll find your strategy for sustainable business success.

The Business Intuition Niche – We’re Making Progress!

I've noticed more and more searches on Google are
using the keywords "business intuition". It's still very sporadic but
still, there's a trend. So what will it take to bring this concept in
mainstream business conversations?

Well, probably a few more
years. And a more systematic approach to intuition overall. This field
has been plagued with dial-a-psychic connotations and the
fuzzy-gut-feeling concepts, making it difficult to get a credible
approach to strategic intuition.

Yet, every successful CEO is
using intuition, whether she calls it that or something else. Business
is a fluctuating world where you have to make decisions with limited
factual information. That exactly the Business Intuition niche.

Business
Intuition is a unique opportunity to turn sporadic "gut feelings" into
a systematic right-brain approach to decision making. It's not about
predicting the future or reading people's minds. Business intuition
allows you to leverage all the little pieces of information that are
scattered all over your conscious and subconscious mind. By bringing it
all together in a coherent "whole", you are more likely to create
lasting results than by just guessing or hoping it turns out well…

And
when you consider that both Oprah and Trump attribute their success to
following their intuition, it makes that approach pretty darn
interesting.

So there's still a long ways to go but we are making
progress! I was very surprised and so excited to get a call from Intel
(an Engineering firm, no less!) asking me to speak at their employee
conference about Business Intuition. They were specifically looking for
an approach to Intuition that kept it relevant to the business
world…A perfect match for my work in this domain.

So even
though the trend is just beginning, it's definitely gathering momentum.
And in business, there's nothing more exciting than momentum!

Meditations Techniques You’ve Never Heard of

Meditation is a very personal thing. When my Empath and Intuitive skills went “live”, I was overwhelmed with information and soooooooooooooo many people recommended meditation.

But I hated meditation…No kidding! Just sitting there, trying not to think of pink elephants. It was like a refined form of torture and, worst of all, oh so boring…

The answer came from one of my Spirit Guides one day. He suggested I try a mediation that involved watching movies. Huh? Does that count, I wondered… Since then, my guides have come up with all kinds of unusual meditation techniques that work for me, and now I love it.

Since I am an engineer, things make sense to me when they have a purpose. In my life, meditation is an processing activity, like a computer that needs some time to open up Word or to connect to the Internet. Computers also needs processing time when turning off, to cleanly organize all the new data that has been created.

When I meditate, I keep my left brain out of the way so that my right brain can process all the information I’ve been receiving (the right brain handles creative, intuitive and abstract data). When I’m done, my mind-computer is responsive again and I’m not just staring at the little hourglass, waiting for the processing to complete before I get my answer!

These are my two favorite meditations techniques. Try them out and feel free to tweak them! Remember that meditation is supposed to feel good.

The Movie Meditation:

1) Select a movie and set your intention to “meditate” while you are watching it.

2) As soon as you start watching, your brain will do what needs to be done to start processing. Even if you don’t know what that involves, your brain does! Just like your brain knows how to keep your body functioning while you think of something else.

Movies are great because they keep your left brain busy, leaving the right brain free to go in processing mode. This is a lot easier than trying to turn down your left brain!

3) After the movie, take a moment to “reboot” your mind-computer.  Do you get a message?  What thoughts pop into your mind? This is a great time for profoundly creative ideas to come up so make sure you’re listening! And take notes, if you feel so inclined! They’ll be priceless!

The Cat Meditation

You know how some people take “cat naps”? A few minutes here and there and they’re all refreshed! I’ve noticed that processing doesn’t have to be done all at once in a gruesome 1 hour session. Your brain always knows where it left off processing and it can continue at any time!

The Cat Meditation is a series of very short meditations (and by short I mean that 5 seconds is enough!) that you can easily do without needing to stop the flow of your day. Over time, I have found that I was yearning for longer processing time without ever having to force it.

1) In the Cat Meditation, you’re actually turning down your left brain for a brief period. This is different than the Movie Meditation, where you keep your left brain busy in order to facilitate processing. To do this, just imagine a blank screen in your mind. Like you’re watching a movie screen but the movie hasn’t started yet.

2) Keep it short! For most of us, it won’t be long before you start seeing thing (or hearing things) on your blank screen. By then, your left brain has started being active again so you’re done!

tip: If you can’t keep the screen blank (it’s ok, I had a hard time with that at first), try counting to 10. Your left brain might be more willing to stay quiet if you give it a little something to do at first.

3) Here are some great ways to practice this:<br>
– Do a Cat Meditation while reading a book each time you turn a page<br>
– Do a Cat Meditation while watching TV on the first commercial (mute the TV first!)<br>
– Do a Cat Meditation when you get in the car every morning<br>
– Do a Cat Meditation when you start to brush your teeth!<br>

Enjoy!

Self-Healing for Instant Results

Energy Healing is an alternative path to healing that is growing exponentially in popularity.  Still, the whole process can be intimidating to someone who has never tried this before.  This article teaches you a simple technique based on Energy Healing that you can use at home to observe your own, unbiased results.

Illness is always associated with the presence of stagnant energy.  But our natural state of being is to keep our energy flowing.  As such, it really doesn’t take much to nudge your body back into energy flow.

Here are 3 simple step to get your healing energy flowing:

  • Locate the problem
    Think about the physical location in your body where the problem is located.  If it’s a systemic issue, think of the specific symptoms your experience.  Take a moment to pay attention to the physical discomfort, the fear, the anxiety.  I know this won’t feel good but we need to bring the problem up to the surface.  Explain to yourself, as you would to someone else, how you truly feel about it.  No censorship:  Be as whiny, scared and angry as you want to be!  You want to be able to connect to the emotions that are triggered when you go to that painful place.
    Note: If you are familiar with EFT, some people have noticed that they can achieve this step really well by using the Karate chop point to get things going.
  • Activate your Energy Flow
    To stimulate energy flow and get your energy moving again, find the location of your Sixth Chakra, the center of Intuition.  This Chakra is located right between your eyebrows.  Using your middle finger, start tapping that location for 10 to 30 seconds.  Most people feel an instant relief as they do this step.  For example, you might feel the need to take a deep breath or feel your shoulders and stomach relax.
  • Anchor the Healing
    Now press your middle finger against that location between your eyebrows, as if you were pressing a doorbell.  Hold that pressure and say, out loud: “Healing”.  This is called an “anchor” and will act as a trigger and move you towards healing whenever you use it.   Release the pressure and clear your mind.

I strongly recommend that you rest for 24 hours after each Intuitive Healing session.   Now that your energy is flowing properly, let your body do its healing work.  Go take a warm bath or a nap!
