Your Accurate Intuition Is At Your Fingertips May 26, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — soulbuffet.com @ 5:56 pm

It’s scary how accurate this is … and you can try it for yourself right away. This is an intuition test called “muscle testing” or “finger dowsing.”

See, the thinking is that you have far more knowledge inside you than you know you have available to you. You can ask any question after you clear your mind and hold your hands like you see in the drawing here.

Make a ring with the thumb and index finger of each hand. Interconnect them, so that your right hand index finger and thumb are touching inside the ring made by the left hand, and vice versa.  Press your thumbs and index fingers together so that you can’t easily separate your fingers.

Now, think of a very specific question you want to know the answer to. You might want to start with something non-emotional, like “Do we need a trip to the grocery store tonight.” Note that the question was not “Do I need to go shopping;” you might get indefinite info because you weren’t specific enough about where you would go shopping, or when.

Take a couple of deep breaths, and make sure you’re as centered and on as even an emotional keel as possible. Loop your fingers together like in the diagram. Apply some pressure between the thumb and index finger of each hand, and hold the intention in your mind to keep the rings from breaking apart when you pull.

Then, phrase your question in your mind, and see if you can pull your fingers apart. If your two finger loops stay interconnected even if you pull with some force, your answer is “Yes.” If your fingers start to slip apart or if one or both rings break apart, your answer is “No.”

You’ll be surprised how accurate this is, and how much information you’ll have … uh … at your fingertips.  Keep practicing this; the more questions you test this way, the more you’ll be able to tell the difference between the subtle intuitive signals you’ll get.

You can start prioritizing your “to-do” list with this technique! For instance, when I get organized first thing for the new day, I look at the items on my list, one by one, and ask, “is this something I need to make a priority today?”  Then, I muscle test it. I get solid info about what my clear priorities are. Once I’m done with the list, I ask, “Do I have any priorities that aren’t on today’s to-do list?” If the answer is yes, I can then go through different areas of my life … work, family, chores, etc … and generally, something jumps into my mind that I meant to do that I momentarily spaced on.

Try this for a few days … make it part of how you plan what you’ll do next as you go through your day … and let me know how it works!

 

HOPE & HEALING May 20, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — soulbuffet.com @ 7:35 am

Working with psychics and mediums and their clients all day, I tend to group the world into two groups of people.  There are those who automatically think of getting a reading, and those who don’t.  The latter group is much larger than the former, of course.

But just why do people go for their first reading?  You almost always gotta be at some sort of crossroads to start looking for a psychic the first time around.  It’s almost guaranteed that you’re facing something new, something scary, that makes you look for different feedback and solutions.

So, really, when many people are looking for a psychic, they’re looking for Hope.  And Healing.

I understand that, and Soul Buffet is here to commit to your new sense of hope, and your full spiritual healing.  Not only will we have good folks for you to book a session with … we’ll keep you hooked up to reasons for hope and ways to heal.

You’ll see this start to develop over the coming weeks.  To start off with:

here’s your hopeful “Real Secret to Success,” and

here’s your healing vision for today, about Archangel Michael.

 

TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE May 18, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — soulbuffet.com @ 9:29 am

I got inspired by Seth Godin‘s latest blog post, and jumped off his thoughts about manipulating people and being manipulated … and started thinking about how much time we all spend covering up our true selves … hiding them even from ourselves.

Occasionally, we run across questions, “what would you do today if you knew it were your last” … or “what would you do if you knew exactly what your purpose on earth was.”

A lot of people just sort of stare off into space when posed with questions like this.

Basically, I do, too.

But what would our answers be if the questions were posed like …

  • Who would you BE today if you knew it were your last?
  • Who would you BE if you knew exactly what your purpose on earth was?

My guess is that the answers would still involve some searching, but might be far more interesting.

 

COOL PERSONAL GROWTH TOOLS May 14, 2010

I’m a big fan of both EFT and ho’oponopono.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), or “that tapping stuff” (as I’ve been known to call it), was a big part of therapy that freed me from the torture of PTSD.

And ho’oponopono is a Hawaiian spiritual technique for taking responsibility for our own lives and cleaning them up.  It’s both incredibly simple, and multi-layered when you get deeper into it.

So I’ve been spending some time at ThereIsAWay.org lately.  Even though the site is a bit cluttered and disorganized, it’s worth spending some time with to see all the stuff they have there.  They have some hypnosis videos and some other techniques and routines that have made a positive difference in how I feel lately.  And that’s saying a lot; I’ve seen a lot of therapeutic and motivational videos that have been enjoyable, but haven’t really been all that change-worthy.

At ThereIsAWay.org, they recommend starting with this breathing video:

But I’m probably most impressed with these self-healing resources, which include these videos:

This combination of ho’oponopono and EFT techniques —

This hypnosis video to build self-confidence —

And this video to “reboot your brain,” which always leaves me feeling more clear and focused, no matter what sort of day I’m having —

 

Simplest Thing EVER. Except….. May 12, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — soulbuffet.com @ 2:45 pm

You almost don’t want to search online for information about how to meditate.

The basics to meditating are very, very simple.  Too often, other people try and make it more complicated than they need to.

  • Sit in a quiet place, take a few deep breaths to relax, and start watching your breath … just watching, listening … you’re on your way. 
  • You’ll start thinking other thoughts.  That’s OK.  Don’t criticize yourself … but just stop, and return to watching and listening to and feeling your breath. 
  • Other thoughts will occur to you.  You may find yourself deep in mental conversations with others, or remembering things that happened, or you might come up with all sorts of fantasies of things that might occur …
  • Then, you remember you’re meditating.  Return to your breath. 
  • Do this for 10, 15 or 20 minutes a day.  Maybe even twice a day.

There are all sorts of variations on this.  There’s also lots of extra discipline you can add to this.  Don’t listen to someone who says you need this particular mantra (a word you repeat to yourself instead of watching your breath), or someone else who says you have to sit a certain way or have a certain knowledge base before you’re really meditating.  There are people who say you really need to be breathing in a particular way before you’re getting the most out of meditation. 

For most busy people, these are all barriers to meditating.  Meditation feels good, and helps get the brain going in the direction your soul and spirit want to go.  You CAN get more disciplined about it if that feels like the path you’re on.  However, if you’re like most people, you’ll never really start if you have a lot of “shoulds” in your head about it.

Meditation isn’t earth-shaking.  It won’t immediately change your world.  It’s not a drug.  It’s a practice to help remind you … to help your brain realize … that the stresses and pressures and issues and allures of everyday life are temporary.  It helps you put that stuff into perspective. 

And, it helps give your brain some discipline.  When you are meditating, and you get caught up in some train of thought that’s making you feel angry or frustrated or thrilled or excited, it’s valuable to know how to just quietly return to watching the rhythm of your breath.  You’ll be better at that in real life now … better at not getting caught up in the flow of emotions.  Especially other people’s emotions that you might want to stay clear of!

If you get interrupted while meditating, deal with what you need to deal with, and return to watching your breath.  You may even doze off when you meditate.  If you startle awake and realize you nodded off, can you guess what you do next?  That’s right, return to paying attention to your breath!

Now, how does this change your life?  Whether it’s inside your brain or outside, relating to others, there’s a constant soup of thoughts, emotions and information that you’re immersed in.

Most of it is not terribly important.  No matter what comes at you, no matter what anyone else says or does, no matter how your very smart brain chooses to trouble you, you can get centered.  You’ll learn this if you meditate regularly.

Finally, this is not some other religion that conflicts with your own.  You may even find that this brings you closer to a faith that you hold dear.
