We usually perceive empathic gifts as pertaining to psychics alone, but could they also be about connecting to our internal guidance system, that intuitive sense of knowing? According to Zen DeBrucke’s book “Smart Soul” we need to “transform anxiety into fulfilment and success” by learning to get in touch with our natural empathic gifts and by so doing avoid the angst of everyday life.
Letting go of negative thoughts is essential to accessing intuitive capacities. Focussing on sounds, perfumes, or sensations when we meditate helps us connect to our internal guidance system, which Zen refers to as a God given compass that “tunes into our natural-born instinct for fulfilment and allows our inner strength guide us straight to success.”
Once we practice connecting to our internal guidance system we feel our body registering a resonant “Yes” or “No” when we are unsure about our decisions. The Internal Guidance System’s “Yes” feels like an “opening out” an easy going sensation in the stomach or heart area and is not affected by our emotions or mood.
Dave was going through a miserable time with an irresolvable health condition. He checked out his internal guidance system, and it showed up as “Yes and open”. He could not understand why. Shouldn’t he be feeling negative, and desperate in such a situation? As time passed he realised he had became kinder, more aware of other’s needs, and far less judgemental. Eventually his illness would not only heal his heart but change his life for the better.
You could sense your own Internal Guidance System is closed down even when you are having fun and rocking the night away. Sami was having a great time at the party, but his internal guidance system advised him to leave ASAP. A few days later he heard that a gate crasher had picked a fight, the police had been called and drugs were found on the premises! If he had still been at the party, he could have found himself in a lot of trouble.
So how do you recognise a Guidance System “No or Yes?” Try this! Think of calling a friend, if you are aware of an opening sensation in your solar plexus, or a relaxed sensation in your heart, no matter how stressed you feel, your Internal Guidance System is saying “Yes”, call that friend. If however, you feel blockage in your stomach, and cannot sense your heart centre at all, your Guidance System is saying leave the phone call to another day. You might not understand why this is so, but the answer will come at a later date.
You might think surely all this Internal Guidance System “spiel” is just about being psychic? Well not really, you do not have to read into the future to use it, you just have to learn to use simple empathic gifts that tune into your body’s reactions as if they were connected to a compass. Of course, practice makes perfect but once you “get it” you can literally change your life.
Zen DeBrucke tells us that “Every day is sacred even if it is not perfect!” So perhaps the Internal Guidance System will help us connect to our “Smart Soul” and help us choose a laid back, rather than a perturbed way forwards!
