Learning On Many Levels – Alternatives by Rick Cano | Jun 26, 2017 | Astrology, Deborah Wellborn, Judith Ashley Romance, Messenger Oracle, Natal Chart, Ravynne Phelan, Sacred Women's Circles, The Dalai Lama, The Sunshine Psychic | 6 comments Judith is the author of The Sacred Women 6 Comments Adriana Allegri on June 27, 2017 at 3:40 pm Great article! I often find answers as a result of meditation. The answers don't usually manifest during meditation, but afterwards. I think it's a matter of getting into relaxation mode for me — when I'm stressed, I'm blocked. When I'm open and able to breathe…the answers come. 🙂 Reply Judith Ashley on June 28, 2017 at 12:04 am Thanks for stopping by Adriana, I've tried sitting and meditating many times and have always given up. I'm considering a walking or moving meditation…staying in the present and focused on each foot step, each breath, etc. We'll see if that works. "Research" (in quotes because I can't name the source but I've read the results) has shown that the brain works differently when we are stressed and therefore misses information — rather like tunnel vision that is focused only on the problem and unable to see possibilities. Reply Vonnie Alto on June 28, 2017 at 8:44 pm Hi Judith, Yes, solving problems is about relaxing. To do this, I clear my mind. I take a bath where I always get insights. I also go outdoors and garden. As I garden, I let my mind wander and insight comes. For me, gardening or just wandering around the front/back yard becomes an outdoor meditation because I tune into nature and let my mind flow. It's always calming. Reply Judith Ashley on June 29, 2017 at 12:16 am Great idea, Vonnie. Tuning into nature is one of my favorite ways to relax. Reply Barbara Rae Robinson on June 30, 2017 at 5:40 pm I've recently been introduced to clearing, using a method utilized by Jean Haner. She writes about it in her book, Clear Home, Clear Heart. My daughter has taken up clearing in conjunction with the crystal healing she's been doing for a while. We're both reaping benefits from it. I've ordered two new pendulums that will be coming this weekend. Intuition has always been a big part of my problem solving. I'm a highly sensitive person and an empath. Clearing comes naturally for me. Reply Judith Ashley on July 2, 2017 at 5:22 am Thanks for sharing your experiences with clearing. I'm not familiar with it or at least not by that name. Will check out Jean Haner. Learning new ways to take care of myself is always a good thing. I know several people who use pendulums to great success but I've not taken the time to become familiar with using one. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
