How to remove your invisibility cloak..

Every now and then it’s good to check your behavior to see if you have developed a habit of making yourself small, or invisible, to not offend those around you.

This happens as a survival technique.  You see it in humans who find themselves homeless, rescue animals, children from hostile environments and empaths, or sensitives. These beings work at staying invisible to avoid attack.  They live on the edges of the world.

removing your invisibility cloakFor those of you who are sensitive or empathic the experience of moving into being seen can be challenging.  It requires standing confident in what you know, without attack and learning to use  a style of Verbal Aikido  to not feel the injuries thrown your way.

Certainly the use of the Four Agreements as you develop your multilevel communication are helpful in maintaining a sense of balance as you step into your full self and remove your invisibility cloak.

The process of truncating your personality takes time.  It begins early in your life, before you actually get the chance to be Big.

It is as an involuntary action, like holding up our hand to your face as protection when you see something coming at you.  It’s an involuntary, protective action.  For empaths it happens early in life.

What may surround the cloak is a feeling of vigilance, a sense of smallness or lack of protection, and pressure to not take up much space.

You can hear it in your voice: ending sentences in an upward lilt, not speaking your truth, giving in and a turn away from conflict.

Usually it works so well that after the first time it gets ingrained into your personality, your behavior habits, your social interactions, until after awhile, maybe a year or more it is your only way to act.  You may know the answer but you only tentatively offer your argument, submissively offering that you may be right, even when inside you know that 2 plus 2 is 4, or in the Buddhist tradition 2+2=1 – you say it cautiously barely taking a stand.

You know you have this invisible cloak style of relating

  • if you often feel you are not listened to or not heard.  You may expereince others actually walking right over you in speech and conversation.  You may feel yourself slightly bowed internally as if protecting your heart and solar plexus.
  • And you have a strong pressure to keep your focus on the other:
  • how to help the other, how to make the other happy, what needs the other has, how to make your self useful, agreeable,non-threatening.

To a small degree this is part of life.  Integrating with the social group, give and take, empathy, and compassion, seeing another’s point of view.

When it becomes pathological is when you are unable to actually stand up for yourself.  You feel anxious, your heart pounding if you are to state your opinion and you feel deeply injured when others do not hear or listen to you.

As a person begins to shift away from being small, the cloak interferes. You may feel conflicted as you stand up for yourself.  You may feel easily injured when others do not hear you or see you. You may be so sensitive to other’s feelings that you don’t communicate what you are feeling, or you don’t act to create your own life, in order to make the other person not feel hurt or offense.

And when you do start to speak your truth, you may notice that those around you will work to put you back into the small place in which you have been living.

If you are wearing an invisibility cloak you may want to use the MAAPS  program to see which of the insecurity drivers, Money, Attachment, Achievement, Power, or Structure,  are in play.

As you attempt to act from a more honest, confident, grounded, and WHOLE BEING space, you may find that you are inarticulate in how you identify yourself and how you stand up for yourself in relationship.  This is normal.  The path to removing your invisibility cloak is to re-member all your parts.  To bring together, in a more empowered and confident way, your integrated self.

You have to allow yourself the road of mistakes in how you speak up, how you communicate your truth and knowing, and you have to tolerate that others will be offended, angry and unhappy with your shifting and growth.

It is a delicate dance to learn a new way of standing visible in the world, in your community.Haindl_Star

This will be especially difficult for empaths and sensitives who are making an effort to create a consciousness change in the fabric of the universe.  Being challenged to be kind, while identifying problems in relationships and being challenged to confront the long held duality consciousness that disallows the elevation of consciousness..  You will feel challenged to be always kind and to be the bigger person which often results in you actually making yourself small.

Every now and then it’s good to check your behavior to see if you have developed a habit of making yourself small, or invisible, to not offend those around you.

If you discover you have an invisibility cloak use the above steps to take it off and practice visibility.  Allow yourself to tolerate others not liking you, stay connected to source.  As you are able to tolerate others not liking you, you will also notice that you can tolerate this attack and feel more aligned with the whole truth.

Gather support from the natural environment.

internal guidance systemMediate, create art, work in the garden, exercise, walk through nature, in reconnecting with the tapestry of life you can see the support there as you offer shift in consciousness to your human community.

Shed your skin, Trust your heart-centered, inner guidance IV system.  Live your life fully and allow your full, big self to be present in the tapestry of life.  You may experience a new Alignment within you, around you and between you and source. in love and light, bg

Aligning your multidimensional field, Reiki energy symbols

In the early nineties, I had the great experience of working and training with two powerful Reiki practitioners in Albuquerque, NM.  After several years of interaction, training, and practice, I began to use these healing skills to assist others in shifting the unseen fields around them, as well as their cognitive habits that interfered with their growth. This training deeply informed my natural Medical Intuitive ability.  It gave form and structure to the information that I had received and intuited since beginning my therapy practice, and allowed me a process to share this information more effectively.

This was the beginning of a long journey of developing myself as the vehicle for change, so that not only did I have access to my words, cognitive headstands, care, mindfulness, compassion, and stillness, I also had access to healing via energy exchange with my hands.

Long before I had read a book called Joy’s Way (W. Brugh Joy, MD, 1979).  I knew that what he described in his book, was what happened in therapy with my clients and patients.  I could feel other’s pain, or emotional energy, negative or positive; I was affected by the energy of spaces; and I had strong time-space continuum experiences of previous lives with the people with whom I came into contact.  I noticed if I asked, an answer would come – a knowing.  I could see problems in spaces by simply asking to see the space and look for negative energy. I learned later this was called remote viewing and remote clearing; and that my knowing was like channeling, or a form of clairvoyance.  But for me it was simply natural, like breathing.  Actually for a long time it was more trouble than helpful, because I knew things about others that they didn’t precisely know themselves.  It created lots of trouble in personal relationships, as you might imagine. And because I could feel other’s pain, I felt a lot of pain in me.  It took some time to discern what was me and what was other.

chakra mantrasHe discussed how he saw, felt the power energy centers in the hands, and feet, splenic area, knees, elbows and hips, as well as the chakras in the multidimensional field of his patients.  This was a way in which he could assist them in their healing.

(This was not his image, but offers information about the energy fields).

I used the long distance technique solely until I received my Doctor of Oriental Medicine License in 2005.  And today I continue to find the long distance technique as most supportive and healing as it allows individuals to have access to the healing energy at any time.

This has made me into a lovely healing channel for those who find their way into my office.  You can read about my experience finding my husband’s cancer in a previous blog, http://instinctivehealthmedicine.com/2010/05/26/instinctive-knowing/ on this site or my book Turning NO to ON: The Art of Parenting with Mindfulness book (2011)

I found the Reiki symbols were very helpful at increasing my sensibilities and focusing my compassion and care with the elevation of Universal Love.  And I found the principles as profoundly valuable:  reiki 1

In 1995 Diane Stein wrote a book called Essential Reiki in which she printed the powerful Reiki symbols. Previously these symbols were only received at attunements, after study and practice with a Reiki practitioner. It was a big deal among practitioners that she chose to do this. I felt it was a great opportunity for many more people to be inspired by the power of healing their etheric, emotional, and cognitive fields allowing for a new alignment with spirit.

Since that time I have used the symbols to help others increase their connection to Universal Love.  Reiki energy is pure healing energy, it connects to Universal Love. It cannot be used for something negative; this is to say one cannot use the symbols to increase their power to do something harmful.

I use the symbols to protect my daughter as she leaves for school, or when she is away from me.  It allows her to be surrounded by positive energy and assists her to remain mindful, connected to source.  I did this for Max when he was younger and I feel it helped him through many difficult times.

Here are the symbols: The top symbol is called  ‘cho ku rei‘. It is the Power symbol in that it empowers the person and it empowers the other symreiki 2bols. The next one pictured is called ‘sei he ki’. It assists in clearing emotional trauma or incorrect thinking.  You can use this symbol in conjunction with a positive mantra, like I am loved, and then follow that statement with the power symbol.  The third symbol is called the ‘hon sha ze sho nen’ and it is the tree of life symbol it connects heaven and earth, it is used for long distance healing and to assist in proper alignment to the person and the chakra system.

To use the symbols they are drawn either in the air or on paper from left to right and top to bottom, then the name is stated three times (in your head or out loud).  The you may say the mantra three times and then draw the power symbol to empower the mantra and symbols.  With the tree of life symbol again it is drawn left to right then top to bottom, like a painting, the name is i=said three times and then the power symbol is drawn.  The power symbol is drawn from right to left then down and around clockwise to increase power or turn on the light switch.  (Diane Stein offers information in her book about the power of clockwise and counterclockwise drawing of the power symbol.)

I encourage you to use these for yourself. At first, to understand, and increase, your understanding of how they assist you before using them with others.

One of the best ways to assist you in elevating your consciousness is to choose to follow one of the Reiki principles above, by saying for example, “just for today … and then complete with one of the principles above like…. “Just for today, I will not anger”.

Witness yourself as you go through your day.  By choosing to not anger, you may find more opportunities to practice than normally…and you may also see new avenues for dealing with conflict, disagreements and interpreted injuries, so that you have the opportunity to see anger as an alarm that a boundary has been crossed, http://instinctivehealthmedicine.com/2010/01/20/befriending-anger-to-increase-happiness/ or that you are caught in a habit reaction patterning  http://instinctivehealthmedicine.com/2012/09/09/anxiety-and-the-development-of-ineffective-habit-reactions/ allowing you to shift your perspective, use your mindfulness, elevate your consciousness, and experience increased compassion, understanding and healing.

You may experience a new Alignment within you, around you and between you and source. in love and light, bg

Pay attention to your Health stats.

When your immune system is down. Think about how you can shift your nutrition and build in meditation yoga and stress management — these are your best treatments to build immune.

Crazy simple:  sleep, exercise, good food, and breathwork are best at healing your body.

In terms of nutrition focus on dark berries, dark leafy greens, quinoa, eggs, dark beans, and white beans.

In terms of supplements – D3, a good B stress, like B100- which includes b2, b4, b6, b12, niacin and folic acid, C with rosewood and cranberry to assist in intake.

If you are a vegetarian make sure you get iron (you can take a plant based supplement called floradex) and zinc (make sure you get a formula that has the proper zinc and copper relationship or chelated zinc) These can assist you.

Vegetarianism is a great way to get nutrition- you just have to be good at getting enough protein and immune support from beans, chickpeas, berries and yogurt (if you are not lactose intolerant — yogurt is my go to every day to help stay balanced and get protein and digestive enzymes naturally).

star of david reflectionEmotions, and lack of spiritual grounding and connection can negatively affect your immune system, that’s the reason for making sure you are participating in stress reducing activities like yoga, meditation, breathwork, and exercise in a balanced way, every day.

Your health is an integrated thing: mind, spirit and body — all three together – good food sustains your body and helps with balanced thinking and spirit source connection – so does breathwork and exercise prayer and meditation – it isn’t usually one thing but all together in harmony that maintain your health.

And finally, if you feel sad, apathetic, lost, out of sync, unable to find your way in the world, consider creating space in your life, every day, to return to nature.

Hike in the mountains, walk on the beach, take a walk through the park.  Swing on a swing, ride a bike..reconnect to nature all around you. You can feel this even through the plants in your lobby or on your windowsill.

The more you allow yourself the opportunity to reconnect with nature, the more likely you will feel a release of negativity and an inner communication that you may have earlier silenced so that you can again or for the first time feel deeply connected to the tapestry of life.

Albuquerque skiesThe trees inhale your carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen.  You inhale oxygen and exhale Carbon dioxide.  We, the trees and humans, animals, birds, are all interconnected in one tapestry of life.  Part of the intense degree of disconnect seen in the field of mental health is the severe disconnection humans experience from the natural sense communication in nature.  Go out into nature and you can begin again to develop your internal sensory guidance senses first with the five plus one senses of sight, smell, taste, sound, touch and intuition, and then as you develop your sense awareness these will expand tenfold.

With these actions you will discover your own personal path to grace.

Acne clear up

instinctivehealthparenting4u:

Here is a helpful blog on an integrative approach to acne treatment.

Originally posted on IntegrativeMedicineStrategiesNow:

beth and ron, by lisa 2015I have struggled with acne since my twenties.
My experience is that traditional or conventional dermatology practices and products have been largely unsuccessful at stopping or treating my outbreaks.

In my twenties, I had good success with proactive products.  But these stopped working after ten years and my acne transformed from clogged pores to cystic acne.

The cystic acne became intractable.  I would have between 1 and 4 cysts at a time, predominantly on my cheeks and my chin area.  These erupted when I was stressed, around my period, or I had too much sun.  They would become inflamed, and then not come to a head or resolve for weeks and sometimes months.  At other times, they might resolve and then after a reprieve of about a week another form in the same place.  So I would have relatively no time when I did not have either scarring or acne…

break down, break up, break out, breakthrough

When you feel you are hitting a wall in your relationships consider the difference in these four concepts in how you respond to the blockage.

  • Break down: it’s like a flat tire. You stop. You cannot move forward or backward. You’re in a stagnant, sometimes involuting situation. This leads to disease, disconnection, and stagnation.  Following a break down you can discover a way to break through.
  • Break up: complete disconnection. Separation. Detached, unattached. This can be very positive when there is a stalled situation that has no mutually satisfying resolution.
  • Break out: again disconnection, freeing from a tethering or prison or domination. Following a Break out you may be able to discern a break through.
  • Break through: This is an elevation. A shift in consciousness. In this phrase there is a freeing from a tethering of inner belief that is holding you back. Breaking through requires mindfulness and paradigm shifting.

If you are in a situation that has stalled, where you are experiencing a need for change or a revolving unresolved conflict…consider which of these is your best action.

I encourage you to look at the last phrase as a guide this will allow you to find new solutions to old problems.
To get more help with this please see these earlier bogs on this site.http://instinctivehealthmedicine.com/2010/06/03/feeling-gods-presence/http://instinctivehealthmedicine.com/2012/04/09/truth-within-inner-guidance-i/http://instinctivehealthmedicine.com/2014/08/19/how-insecurity-interferes-with-getting-what-you-want/http://instinctivehealthmedicine.com/2013/03/09/trust-yourself-or-if-you-meet-the-buddha-on-the-road-kill-him/ and http://instinctivehealthmedicine.com/2011/10/06/shifting-perspectives-my-personal-adventure/.

You can get there from here…when you use the phrase break through you have the chance of reclaiming yourself, reconnecting with your partner, and shifting the world in which you live simultaneously…how great is that? in love and light, bg
