Giving Yourself a Reading

One way to connect to your intuition and to develop trust in the information that it is giving you, is to get in the daily habit of giving yourself readings.  There are a wide variety of techniques and processes out there, but the idea is to keep it simple.  I’m going to give you a simple process that I have shared with students and clients of mine over the years.

  1. Write down your questions. I harp on journaling A LOT because it is one of the most powerful spiritual tools in our arsenal of self discovery. One of the reasons so many people have difficulty in doing readings for themselves is that they either aren’t sure of the questions they want to ask, or they aren’t sure they are ready to hear the answers to those questions. Carrying our journals with us gives us a place to write down the questions we may have for our soul.
  2. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable with yourself. Being open to our questions is as important as being open to the answers, and both require us to be vulnerable enough to show up to our process of self inquiry.
  3. Open to your heart. One simple method of tuning in is to bring your awareness to your heart center. You can do this by simply bringing your hands to the heart. Allow yourself to connect to the simple rise and fall of the chest. Feel the beating heart beneath your hand. Let this act of body awareness be a doorway to deeper listening.
  4. Listen for the answers to your question with your entire body. We often get stuck in our head, and we often feel as if answers to our questions will come with some deep flash of insight, or thundering God force words through our ears. Sometimes the answer comes as a subtle fluttering in our bellies, a breath that goes a bit deeper than all the others, or you may see something in your external space that triggers deeper exploration (a photo, a color, a bird, a tree, etc).
  5. Write down anything you are feeling, seeing, sensing, or hearing (internally or externally). All of it is used in determining the answer to the questions you are asking. Don’t over think things, if something is standing out, write it down.
  6. Take a step back from the session. Let the answers and questions gestate a bit. You might come back with more questions based on the answers you receive – GREAT!  This means you are now moving into a soul dialog rather than just a question and answer session.
  7. Sometimes the answer isn’t what you want to hear, but it is always what you need to hear. Be receptive to whatever comes through. One of the most dangerous things we can do it is toss aside an answer just because we don’t like it. I see this often in cases of relationship questions. It’s hard to hear the truth. Sometimes the answer is that it is time to move on, but tossing aside that truth filled answer because it’s not what we want to hear only leads us to more suffering. If we are having trouble with a particular response we have received from our intuition, we can always ask our soul to amply the answer we have received, be open to digging deeper if you feel called to do so:
    1. What do I need to know about my relationship at this time?
      1. Beloved, it is time to move forward into your own light as this relationship has come to the end of its course.
      2. What can I do to make the transition one filled with grace?
      3. What areas of this relationship have caused us to arrive at this point of finality?
      4. What is my true teaching from this relationship with (xyz)?
  8. Have fun with giving yourself a reading. Too often we only use this beautiful connection we have to the soul our soul (the intuition) to ask about the stuff that requires heavy lifting. Ask simple things, ask about manifesting, ask about creating abundance, ask about winning the lottery, ask about expanding your connection to your spiritual path, ask for affirmations of love, ask for any number of things you might desire insight on, but ask!
  9. Take action on what your soul is giving you in the reading. If we are asking to improve our lives, and then we don’t follow through, it is only going to prolong the suffering and delay arriving at that place of liberation.

This is just a quick primer, something to have a bit of fun with, and my soul is nudging me to do more with the blog, so here it is. I hope that you find the information useful, and if you have questions you can alway contact me at: michael@michaelbrazell.com

Weekend Specials, Radio Show, and Life

rtrbuddhaI hope that everyone is doing well.  Life has been up and down for many (myself included).  Be sure that you are taking time to breath.  Take a few moments each day to be in gratitude for all that life is bringing you–yes, even the struggle.  The struggle that we go through is a teacher, it helps to bring us to our edges, and helps us to initiate change.   Take a moment and just breathe. Place your hands on your heart, and feel the drum of your life beating, moving life force through your very existence.  This is what life is really all about.  Finding a bit of stillness in the chaos.  Don’t get so hung up on the small things.  Allow yourself to have grace, peace and love.  The world will bring its challenges.  Life will be difficult.  Decisions will not be easy… and even in all of this we can find love.  The grass is already green where you are.  Stand in power, stand in love, and let your breath move you.

 

–I’ve just loaded up my website with the reading specials for June!  So head over and check those out.  I am also offering some really great offers for this weekend (5/30-6/1).  If you purchase a 30 or 60 min reading this weekend, you’ll get one free.  You can share the extra reading with a friend, use it for a follow-up, or just keep it for a future “soul check up”.  The sessions are good for 6 months, so you don’t have to book them right away.  This is a great deal since they are combined with the already reduced rates!  Click here to go to my site, or fill out the form below.  If you are currently going through a financial hardship and still want to get a reading, do not hesitate to contact me.  We can always work out an exchange, a payment plan, etc.

–I am also offering $6 email readings.  These are great if you want a bit of a soul nudge, or just have a few questions.  These usually take me about 24 hours to respond to, and you can ask up to 3 questions you’d like guidance on.

Is it Possible to be Too Awake?

This past weekend I had an awakening of sorts.   I immersed myself in documentaries, blogs, podcasts, and deep reading. There are moments when information hits you, and it stops you in your tracks.   These are moments where reality as you know it ceases to exist and then you have to shift your thoughts, actions, and senses to accept the new reality that is unfolding.  One reality is fractured and then we begin to align to the new reality.  For many of us that do spiritual work, we have had these experiences.   When we are first time mediums, and we have that first experience of ectoplasm or physical interaction with the spiritual world that we can no longer go back to what was before.

I could feel the world around me shifting, and my perception of reality over the weekend has changed.  I could feel myself in the process of awakening, and was aware of everything that was happening in that space.  When we start tuning in to the forces that are working beyond the veil, when we see the interconnectedness of cosmic/local/global events, the words that are heard even when they are not said.   We start moving through the web of illusions and into truth, reality, and a different kind of connection.

I’ll be sharing a lot of the information that I am being shown by my higher self, guides, and what I am learning through an expansion of my research soon. I am doing more to capture my experience, journaling, recording, and documenting so that I can deepen the process of being able to reflect .

There were moments when the expansion grabbed me so intensely that I had to lay on my yoga mat and ground… Then a thought came in– Is it possible to be too awake?

We live in a society that teaches “Ignorance is Bliss”.  Many of us would rather not see than see, but once the veil is pulled back we can not un-see what is seen.  When we start opening our eyes we can try to deny what we are perceiving but once the illusion is shattered all past, present and future events begin to restructure around the new perception.  An example is Santa.  Once we learn that this was actually our parents placing Santa’s name on gifts it takes away all the past “santa presents” and it no longer allows us to see Santa presents in the future as the same.

Society is shifting and changing rapidly.  We can choose to focus on memes of cats, birds, and positive statements or we can choose to engage some of the deeper darker stuff.  Understanding where the pain is allows us to direct healing towards it.

We can do this in a structured way.  Choose to start waking up.  Pick an area of your life that you want to bring attention and awareness towards.  Food is one place to start.  We start looking at how our food affects us.  How are your purchasing choices impacting the world, where do your foods come from, etc and go down the rabbit hole.  Awareness opens us to new realities, but if along the way we find an area that needs healing and energy we can give it.  If we are looking at food and know that local farmers are being kicked out by big Agribusiness we can send light, protection, and healing to those that need it in that space.

We are no longer in a place where we can be complacent in our spirituality.  Spirituality needs to be the place we move from and not the space we just sit in to escape.

Choose to open your eyes, engage your space, and wake up.  Is it possible to be too awake?  There is only one way to find out…
