How to Instantly Relax, Calm Down, and Clear Your Mind

The other day a reader asked a question on my post Psychic Ability – The Gift of Feeling  that many others have on their minds. She is so sensitive to other people’s feelings that sometimes she can’t function in her daily life, and she wanted to know how to overcome her debilitating situation.

I could empathize with her because I used to have the same issue. I shared a couple of powerful energy clearing techniques with her, which will solve the immediate problem, but there’s so much more to this question and not enough room to discuss it in a blog comment that I decided to share with you in a blog post how I learned to live in my own energy without sacrificing my sensitivity.

This post is a long one because I have included step-by-step processes that will help you relax, calm down, and clear your mind. So hang in there with me.

The Human Energy Field

This issue really starts with the cosmic soup of energy we live in. Thoughts are things, and we are constantly bombarded with thoughts and impressions from outside ourselves 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – that’s 24/7, no exaggeration. We are two-way radios, constantly sending and receiving signals. We are never unplugged.

Every living thing has an electromagnetic field which penetrates and surrounds it. In humans, it’s called the human energy field. The human energy field is the life force that holds the cells of our bodies together. Without it, we would be corpses. Here is a good description of the human energy field, also called the aura, from reiki-for-holistic-health.com.

The aura is the electromagnetic field that surrounds the human body (Human Energy Field-HEF) and every organism and object in the Universe.

 

The Human Energy Field [is] a collection of electro – magnetic energies of varying densities that permeate through and emit or exit from the physical body of a living person. These particles of energy are suspended around the healthy human body in an oval shaped field. This “auric egg” emits out from the body approximately 2-3 feet (1 metre on average) on all sides. It extends above the head and below the feet into the ground.

For more about the aura, to go http://www.reiki-for-holistic-health.com/auracolormeanings.html

The aura, also called the biofield, is actually our soul energy and connects us to everything in the universe. It’s the medium through which we sense our environment. Everyone senses everything in their environment through their aura whether they are aware of it or not; the only difference between people is the degree of sensitivity.

People who are highly empathic are particularly sensitive to their environment. These are the ones who find it challenging to be in a crowd or to be in a negative environment because they pick up energy indiscriminantly. The good news is that we have the ability to manage our biofield energy. In fact, it’s very important to manage our biofield energy so that we can function free of outside influences and enjoy life more.

Personal Energy Management

There are familiar ways we all regulate our biofield energy, such as doing things that lift our spirits like watching funny movies, going out with friends, playing sports, etc. These are indirect methods of biofield energy management, and they are more directed at our moods.

Everybody knows that keeping our thoughts more positive than negative is a powerful way to regulate our energy. Prayer is another powerful way.

For some, managing thoughts is easier said than done. And sometimes even the strongest minds need something more. That’s where direct methods of energy management come in.

Direct methods obviously work directly with your energy field, either physically or mentally, and do more than change your mood. They affect both your biofield and your body. Whether we use direct or indirect methods, I call it Personal Energy Management, or P.E.M.

There are other good methods of direct energy management, but I have found the ones I’m going to share with you to be quicker and easier than most, once you learn them. You can actually do these techniques on the run, if necessary. It’s like instant P.E.M.

Protecting Your Space

The first thing you need to do is establish a psychic boundary between you and the rest of the world. I don’t mean you have to shut down your feelings, but create a space within and around yourself that will allow you to sense the feelings and thoughts of others without getting caught up in them. I’m going to share four ways I do this. I call them all Spiritual Cleansing. The first one is a physical process.

Spiritual Cleansing I

  • Standing up, rub your hands together until they feel warm or until they tingle or feel like magnets when you hold the palms about an inch apart. This means your biofield is charged up and ready to work with.
  • Bring your hands to your forehead and pass them down over your temples and jaw line.
  • Then shake them to keep your biofield energy going.
  • Now, starting at your forehead again, pass your hands over the top of your head and around the back of your neck and bring them to the front again.
  • Shake your hands again, and repeat the process until you feel balanced, starting with your forehead and jaw line once more. You can touch or not touch your skin. The process works either day.
  • As you are doing the physical process, you can repeat this mantra (or not): “In the name of (your word for the Creator) within me, I cleanse my body, I cleanse my soul.”
  • Do this entire process as many times as you need to until you sense that your energy is strong and clear.

You will know your energy is balanced and clear when you feel relaxed, when your skin feels tingly, or when you get chills or goose bumps.

You can do this process on the run (in a meeting, on the bus, at your desk, etc.) by rubbing the back of your neck or rubbing your forehead and mentally saying the mantra at the same time. Everyone does this naturally because subconsciously we know the back of the neck and the forehead are the points where our biofield energy enters the body and leaves the body. Running your hand through your hair is another way you automatically cleanse your biofield energy.

Spiritual Cleansing II and Variation

  • Visualize yourself doing Spiritual Cleansing I and repeating the mantra.
  • After you become familiar with the technique, just repeating the mantra either aloud or mentally will have the same effect as doing the physical process.

Spiritual Cleansing III

  • Imagine a tiny ball of white light in your solar plexus.
  • Allow the light to expand to fill your body.
  • Now imagine the light surrounding your body in a big, glowing ball of white light.
  • As you imagine the light filling and surrounding you, you can say, “I see the white light of the Loving Presence that fills me and surrounds me.”
  • You can use any color you are led to use.

Spiritual Cleansing IV

  • Say the following three times, aloud or mentally:
    • “I invoke the light of the Christ within (or your word for the Creator), I’m a clear and perfect channel, light is my guide.”

Each of these processes creates an invisible shield around you which allows you to sense your environment without becoming influenced by it. Each of them will produce physical effects, such as tingling, chills, or goose bumps.

Experiment

If you have a dowsing rod(s), you can measure a friend’s biofield while s/he is doing these processes and have him/her measure yours. Have your friend focus on a negative thought, then measure his field by standing about 10 feet away and walking toward him with the rod(s). You will not get a measurement until you are about 12 inches or so from your friend. As your friend does the cleansing processes, you will see his aura projecting up to 10 feet from his body when you use the dowsing rod(s). It’s fun to see how powerful these processes are and to realize how much power we have to change our energy.

Spiritual Discipline

Cleansing is a spiritual discipline, and you will get out of it what you put into it. I recommend cleansing before you go to bed and when you get up, whenever you feel stressed or tired during the day, angry or upset, before a meeting, before and after work, and between tasks during the day. You’ll find countless ways you can use it in your everyday life. You can teach your children how to do it, too. Little kids love to do it.

You may feel the need to cleanse multiple times a day at first, but when you become skilled with these techniques, your energy will stay at higher levels longer and you won’t have to cleanse as often. Always look for the physical responses of chills, tingling, or goose bumps that confirm your energy is clear. It’s important for everyone to take charge of their energy. You don’t have to live your life at the mercy of your environment.

I hope you will try these techniques, and I’d love to receive your comments. Also, please share with us other ways you manage your personal energy. Knowledge is power!

Live your purpose every day.

This is an inspiring post I just had to share with you from Patti Clark’s blog, called Life is not linear! There are so many golden nuggets in it about who we are and how we treat our talents. What feeds your spirit?

This Way Up

“Life is not linear  – it is organic
we create our lives symbiotically as we explore our talents in relation to the circumstances they helped to create for us.”

– Sir Ken Robinson


“Life is not linear  – it is organic – we create our lives symbiotically as we explore our talents in relation to the circumstances they helped to create for us.”

I rewrote that quote purposely so you could read it twice.  I love that line – think about it, we create our lives symbiotically as we explore our talents in relation to the circumstances they helped to create for us.  When I read that I think of an infinity sign, a figure 8 on it’s side, with each experience that we have feeding into the life we are creating as it goes on into infinity.  I just love it!  It feels like such potential to me, that interweaving and…

“The loveliest masterpiece of the heart of God…is the heart of a Mother.” ~ St. Therese of Lisieux

Being a mother is learned through creating and nurturing a new life.

Being a happy mother is gained through cultivating a noble and meaningful life.

If you are a mother, keep being a proud and happy mom!

If you have such a great mom, be proud of her, honor her, and always express your appreciation to her!

If you did not get such a chance to enjoy great love from mom, learn it and become a great parent yourself, or become a great older to the whole next generations of the world!

Mother’s Day

Genesis, the Gift of Life, by Miguel Covarrubias

Since Sunday is Mother’s Day, I’d like to pause Friday Funnies this week in order to pay tribute to mothers everywhere.

The mother-child relationship is a deep and mysterious one. It begins before either is ever born. Motherhood may or may not be part of a soul’s purpose. If it is, the soul agrees to parenthood before entering life on earth. We mothers enter into a spiritual contract with each of the souls we will eventually encounter as our children.

Our mothers are our first contact with physical life. Our development in the womb creates a powerful, two-way bond of love. If you have a loving relationship with your mother, it’s easy to feel this bond. If your relationship is not so close, it’s not so easy.

When I look back at my tumultuous relationship with my mother, I remember knowing, deep in my spirit, that she loved me in spite of what we were experiencing on the physical plane. I think my knowing was the remembrance of that spiritual bond between mother and child that underlies whatever happens in the 3-D relationship.

We all want our mothers to be what we perceive as perfect. Very few of us have our ideal mother. On the other hand, maybe we do. Maybe, if we are willing to learn, they embody the lessons that can make us the best Self possible.

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers everywhere. Thank you for your presence in our lives.

Today is blonde-joke day. I don’t know why blonde jokes were invented. Maybe everyone else is jealous because blondes have more fun and they want blondes to pay the price. Or maybe people just like stupid-funny. Stupid can be funny. Enjoy.

This one was emailed to me from a friend.

The Milkman and the Blonde

A blonde heard that baths in milk would make her beautiful.  She left a note for her milkman to leave 25 gallons of milk.When the milkman read the note, he felt there must be a mistake.  He thought she probably meant 2.5 gallons.  So he knocked on the door to clarify the point.The blonde came to the door and the milkman said, “I found your note asking me to leave 25 gallons of milk.   Did you mean 2.5 gallons?”

The blonde said, “No, I want 25 gallons.  I’m going to fill my bathtub up with milk and take a milk bath so I can look young and beautiful again.”

The milkman asked, “Do you want it pasteurized?”

The blonde said, “No, just up to my neck. I can splash it on my eyes.”

The following are from:  http://www.coolblondejokes.com/FunnyJokes/FirstClassBlonde.shtml

Blonde on a Plane

A plane is on its way to Detroit when a blonde woman in economy class gets up and moves into an open seat in the first-class section.

The flight attendant watches her do this and politely informs the woman that she must sit in economy class because that’s the type of ticket she paid for.

The blonde replies, “I’m blond, I’m beautiful, I’m going to Detroit, and I’m staying right here.”

After repeated attempts and no success at convincing the woman to move, the flight attendant goes into the cockpit and informs the pilot and co-pilot that there’s a blonde bimbo sitting in first class who refuses to go back to her proper seat.

The co-pilot goes back to the woman and explains why she needs to move, but once again the woman replies by saying, “I’m blond, I’m beautiful, I’m going to Detroit, and I’m staying right here.”

The co-pilot returns to the cockpit and suggests that perhaps they should have the arrival gate call the police and have the woman arrested when they land.

The pilot says, “You say she’s blonde? I’ll handle this. I’m married to a blonde. I speak blonde.”

He goes back to the woman and whispers quietly in her ear, and she says, “Oh, I’m sorry,” then quickly goes back to her seat in economy class.

The flight attendant and co-pilot are amazed and ask him what he said to get her to move.

“I told her first class isn’t going to Detroit.”

Q: How many blondes does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A: Two; one to hold the light bulb and one to spin the ladder around.

Speeding Ticket

A blonde was speeding on the highway when a police car pulled her over.

The policeman walked up the blonde and said, “Excuse me, ma’am, could I see your driver’s license and registration?”

The blonde gave the policeman an angry look and said, “I wish you guys would get your act together. Just yesterday you take away my license and today you expect me to show it to you!”

Non-blonde Joke, but just as stupid:

An Illinois man left the snow-filled streets of Chicago for a vacation in Florida. His wife was on a business trip and was planning to meet him there the next day.

When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick email. Unable to find the scrap of paper on which he had written her email address, he did his best to type it from memory.

Unfortunately, he missed one letter, and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher’s wife whose husband had passed away only the day before.

When the grieving widow checked her email, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead faint.  At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:

DEAREST WIFE,

JUST GOT CHECKED IN. EVERYTHING PREPARED FOR YOUR ARRIVAL TOMORROW.

P.S.

IT SURE IS HOT DOWN HERE.

I hope these jokes made you smile.

P.S. Don’t miss the ones at the links below.

Have a great weekend, and live your purpose every day.

The Law of Attraction in Action

Magnesy
Magnesy (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

By now almost everybody knows that the Law of Attraction brings you what you think about. There are hundreds of articles, blogs, books, and websites about activating the Law of Attraction in your life. Many of us forget that using the Law of Attraction is effortless. You don’t have to be “spiritual” to experience it. It is always in action, and it works for everyone. If we pay attention to what’s happening, we see it everywhere.

From time to time, I forget to notice the Law of Attraction in my life. If I’m in haste mode and perceive it’s not working for me, I create static about it. So I’ve decided to start a project, beginning today, to notice the Law of Attraction in my life. My intention, each day for the next three months, is to write down some way the Law of Attraction has demonstrated itself in my life. By then, noticing the Law of Attraction in my life should be as automatic as breathing.

Why bother? This project will show me the quality of my thinking, since some examples will be negative and some positive. I expect to learn to create more of what I want in my life and less of what I don’t want.

Sometimes the Law of Attraction is not obvious to us, or perhaps our experience of it is so insignificant (it’s manifesting with small things) that it’s hard to see. I had an experience several months ago that illustrates this.

One day I noticed that one of the tires on my car was low on air, so I went to my neighborhood gas station to fill it up. Much to my surprise, I noticed that now they are charging $1.00 for 3 minutes of air. I got angry because … first of all, air is free – we breathe it all the time without paying for it; second, I don’t need 3 minutes of air – only a few seconds; third, the bastards got us again. You will agree with me, an unenlightened attitude.

Incensed, I went to several other gas stations and found the same was true at each one. So I decided not to fill up my tire that day. Naturally, I knew that an issue was up. It nagged at me for several days. To make a long story short, I was eventually willing to resolve my issue (I can be stubborn) and let it go. I still wanted free air, but there was no emotional charge on it any more.

Soon after that, I stopped at the air pump of a grocery store where I had been shopping, now willing to pay. I got in line behind a man who was just finishing up with his tire. As he pulled away and I pulled up at the pump, the man stopped his car and got out. I was surprised, because it was a cold, rainy day. As he approached me, he said, “There’s plenty of air left. You can have the rest of mine.” Not only that, he filled the tire for me. Wow. Needless to say, I thanked him profusely. In addition to getting the air for free, I loved the chivalry of this classy man.

It was a small thing, but it made my day.

What about you? Want to join me in my project? It would be fun to share experiences. How is the Law of Attraction working in your life? Just tell us in the comments section. If enough people respond, I’ll create a blog post just for our comments.

Live your purpose every day.
