Intuition In a Time of Turmoil- Stress Reduction is a Must!


When I first began doing this work many years ago, I gave little attention to the effects of stress and trauma upon one’s ability to access and utilize one’s sixth sense.  It was obvious that stress could play a major role in people’s lives, impacting the ability to stay clear-headed, a major requirement of decision-making.  It would take a series of clients sharing how and why they made poor decisions and their inability and sometimes unwillingness to connect with their gut feelings. their experiences painted a picture.  It seemed like bad decisions could often be traced back to stress and lack of clarity and so many people complaining ” I don’t have time to slow down.”

Creative Reasoning

Wondering how and why this could be, consider asking people.   Some people get very creative with reasons and excuses.  You might hear “I had too much going on”:  ” I wasn’t paying attention”; “there wasn’t enough time”; “there were too many demands on me”; “I wasn’t sleeping”; ” I wasn’t working”; and more.

We are now living in times where our stress levels are very high.  People tell me how they are coping with today’s tensions in a variety of ways.  Some play music.  Some listen to music.  Some dance. Some exercise.  Some read science fiction.  Others paint and/or draw.  Card playing is another activity to calm the mind and the nerves. Quilting, knitting, sewing and cooking, walking, hiking, aerobics, petting a dog, rubbing noses with a cat help the blood pressure and assist the mind in focusing elsewhere.

Think that you don’t have time for any of the above?  Looking for something quicker?  How about trying one of the following suggestions:

  • Close your eyes and picture a peaceful place.
  • Count your breath, both your inhalations and exhalations.
  • Move your body. Even short walks help.
  • Drink water. Many people are dehydrated which is a stress to the body.
  • Laugh more.
  • Find a hobby and engage!
  • Listen to others.  It will take your mind off of yourself.
  • Meditate.  Even a few minutes greatly helps.

If you are still in doubt that the connection between your stress levels and your ability to maintain a clear head, you aren’t along.  Find out for yourself.  Stress less and notice what happens to your decisions.  Odds are, you make better choices.  Want to bet?

    This one fits me best. I used to do all these wonderful things back in Montana when I was young. I sang and danced and created many great things (I thought). It seems that my downfall happened about my 24th year. A job, A man, A huge disappointment happened and I left most them behind me. When I was 6 or 7, I had many out of body experiences. I also have had many d’e ja vieu (I can’t spell it) experiences. I can’t tell you when the last one happened. I don’t remember. I have been finding things on YouTube that are getting me excited. It really does exist! It’s not just my imagination. Where did all my hope go? Can I get it back again? Will you help me?
