Take a moment to breathe, just releasing any tension in your body,
nice deep breath and just let it out, let you know the tension
drop off of your shoulders, allowing your body to breathe
itself. Welcome brother, checking in with your body in this
present moment, similar to the being present. Without future or
past. How did that go for you during the week. Yeah. Sounds like a
new adventure in a way like starting the clearing process. So you
can begin the year a new. Very nice. for the program
today. Listening to the mind chatter. And being able to
distinguish chatter that's coming directly from mind and ego
versus information, which could be words could be sensations could
be feelings that are coming from a higher place a spiritual
source, as it were, that has our best interests in mind, and a
grander viewpoint than what we have been here in the middle of
life on the planet, and within this time dimension in three
dimensions of space. How do you distinguish between mind chatter,
and inspiration, coming from spirit. Like in your mind receiving
inspiration from spirit or higher self versus the background mind
chatter of this more basic within the 3d realm as opposed to
having this higher perspective. So we're going to explore that
tonight. Practicing distinguishing between mind chatter, and
insight from the, from a higher source in higher space. So, just
taking a moment. If you want to have a notebook ready, this is a
good time to prepare that good teen present in your body. Allow
yourself to tune in to that ceiling that you described associated
with information coming from the higher self. The
excitement. Allow yourself to tune in. Very simply being
connected. Simply and clearly to this feeling may feel like
love. You may feel warm. He may feel excitement, just tuning in to
this sensation, recognizing that this connection is always
available at any given moment, with the intention of connecting to
your highest self. Use your mind or your voice with your intention
to connect only to your highest self in your best
interest. connected to your purpose in life. In this
moment. Welcoming your connection. Clearly and simply allow
yourself to have a bit of a dialog. Very simple. With the answers
coming, even as soon as you can pose the question, how do you
connect most clearly with your higher self. What type of
questions. Can you ask of your hire So when is your higher self
available for you. Well now we, the answers to come very clearly
and simply write down any answers that you hear, as it best serves
you. recognizing this connection in a very clear way, asking your
higher self how to distinguish between the higher self insights
and other ramblings of the mind. Feeling that love warm open
connection. Thank your higher self, your own cell for creating the
connection. And we'll practice, keeping the connection open while
speaking with each other in keeping the connection open while
writing in your notebook. Take a moment to write in your notebook
any insights you received. Welcome to share with me as you
wish. For me, my higher self always uses positive language. So,
for me if I hear something like, do not do this. That's for me
that's not from my higher self, the phrasing is always
positive. Loving patient calm. These are words that I've used to
describe my, the sensations I get connected to higher so while I
was leading the meditation, I. It was my intention to just bring
it all down from from higher self so I don't remember all the
questions that I asked in that meditation, but I think there's at
least one or two more that were there. Did you notice any other
insights that came during the meditation. The mind is well versed
and offering things to think about. So, allowing awareness, step
back from the mind while it's busy chattering. Okay. Gavin Watson
notice that the mind is there, busily trying to keep control,
maybe a way to describe it. So yeah. The next thing I had planned
is very related to that and related related to last week, or maybe
two weeks ago, where we allowed the mind chatter to go down down
down into the worst possible scenario. And having done that
exercise already. Last week, we don't need to do the exercise,
again, but just notice what it felt like doing that, you can do a
very abbreviated version of that exercise, what might happen, and
noticing the downsides. But more importantly, noticing how it
feels when these types of thoughts are coming up for you. Notice
if there is a difference in your posture. Notice the difference in
your energy in your body. Is there a difference in the tension. Is
there a difference in how quickly your mind is moving. Simply
notice how it feels. For the mind to take over and go down the
rabbit hole. And now practice, releasing the mind coming back up,
as it were, into the feeling connected to your higher
self. Welcome in your focus your hero awareness back into your
higher self. Notice the difference in the texture of the
feeling. Notice the posture of your body. Notice the speed with
which your mind is moving. Notice the space between your
consciousness, and your mind. As your consciousness is more fully
present and aware with your higher self. And just as practice is
an exercise. Allow your consciousness to move back to your
mind. Connecting to one of the thoughts. Connecting to one of the
thoughts and just allow your consciousness to lock on to the
thought noticing how it feels. As your consciousness is locked
into a thought. Is there a difference this time. After being
connected to your higher self versus a previous time where maybe
you've been lost in thoughts all day. One type of indication, can
you notice that to become lost in thought. How can you remind
yourself to reconnect to your higher self. From inside this
state. Practice noticing yourself lost in thought, and use that to
bring yourself back into awareness of your higher self. No to
seeing your body, noticing your breathing reconnecting to the
space. The silence, in which your higher self rests. Notice this
way of noticing. When you've become lost in thought. So you can
more easily recognize in your day to day activities. Maybe setting
an intention for yourself. To quickly notice when you've become
lost in thought, allowing yourself to keep connection to your
higher self consciously. This will be our playful exercise, size,
during the week. Practicing staying connected to higher
self. Recognizing it's a process. The higher self is slowly
welcoming and accepting giving yourself time to practice this new
way of being. Thank you for practicing with me now.
