Child Was Removed From Family At Gunpoint Because Dad Showed The World His Son’s Vaccine Reaction

Published

on

“Imagine this scenario: Your perfectly healthy baby boy begins having 14 seizures a day, the day after receiving the Meningitis B Vaccine. You get no answers from your GP, or anybody else, for that matter. You make a video of your young boy to warn other parents that there might be something wrong with the vaccine. You think that’s only right: Let people see what happened to your boy and make their minds up on whether to opt out of that particular vaccine. You start looking into vaccines and conclude you won’t be vaccinating your child/children anymore. This results in your boy being removed from your home, because your anti-vaccine stance might harm him. Imagine it. Luke Maguire and Louise McKever don’t have to imagine that scenario. They’ve lived it for the last year.”

– Richie Allen, radio presenter

In the last year, Luke Maguire and his partner, Louise, have been through a living hell. Ever since their child received a new meningitis vaccine called Bexsero, which caused a massive reaction within a day of receiving it, their son had suffered from a strange new twitch.

“At the two month vaccine, Bobby developed a twitch,”  Luke told radio host Richie Allen. “We knew straight away it was from the vaccines as it started that night. He was sleepy, floppy and pale. But after we alerted the nurses to the twitching, they assured us that vaccines were 100% safe.”

After receiving no help from their GP, or anyone else in the medical field, the outspoken father started sharing their experiences on Facebook with a video of Bobby having his seizures. He hoped to warn other parents that Bexsaro might be unsafe. He said it caused a quick decline in their son’s health and gave him severe epilepsy, which he did not have prior to receiving the vaccine.

After Father Spoke Out About First Vaccine Causing Issues, Social Services Threatened to Take Child

After receiving some mainstream press, the story became well-known in the UK and due to a Facebook video Luke made, went viral overseas. While Luke and Louise knew that the vaccine had caused severe harm and didn’t want to give Bobby any more, social services threatened to take Bobby away from their care if they didn’t continue to vaccinate him. Reluctantly, the parents had him vaccinated again. After this second lot, Bobby’s health deteriorated even further, which meant he was now having severe fits that sometimes lasted for minutes at a time.

Since receiving these vaccines, Bobby has visited the hospital over 55 times. Luke took to Facebook to share Bobby’s story with as many people as possible, and the family has sought help outside the medical system to try to improve their son’s health. They have been giving him organic food, have tried homeopathy and other natural remedies, and took him off dairy. Bobby’s health and seizures began to improve, and as you can see from the photo below, he looks a lot better.

Is This Where We Are Heading: Speak Out Against Vaccines and Children Will Be Removed?

Earlier this week, Luke spoke with UK radio host Richie Allen to share what has been going on since Bobby had the vaccines, and what has happened since he started to speak out about them. He also described the last few weeks’ events, which ended in police raiding their house and removing Bobby at gunpoint. Luke shared this with Richie:

One told us to be quiet, that we were making too much noise about vaccines. She told me in front of two police officers – and I have a recording of her saying this – to stop talking publicly about vaccines, then they’d leave us alone. I said to the police officer “can she say that?” and the police officer said “no, she can’t.” But by that time, I’d got the story in the newspapers.

Why should parents be threatened for speaking out about something that has happened to their child? Shouldn’t we be allowed to have a choice to say no to medical treatment, especially if it had caused issues in the first place? Shouldn’t we be allowed to voice our concerns regarding the safety of something our child has been given?

UK Judge Said In 2013 Jail Social Workers Who Take Children Away For No Reason

Whilst many people will dismiss this article and say ‘it can’t possibly be true, kids do not get removed because parents are against vaccines, or for speaking ‘badly’ about them, so ‘something’ else may be the reason for the removal. However, a top UK family Judge spoke out about social workers taking children away for no valid reasons.

Sir James Mundy said during a case back in 2013 regarding social workers who did not tell the parents why their children were being taken and adopted out, that their behaviour was ‘deplorable’ and ‘symptomatic of a deeply rooted culture in family courts’.  He also accused the social workers in question of having a ‘slapdash, and ‘lackadaisical’ attitude to court orders.  He then went on to suggest that in future there could be consequences dished out to these social services workers who fail to respond to court orders asking for proof on why these children are being taken away.

How frightening it is to read this, that social services are sometimes found to NOT follow proper procedure and are ignoring court orders!

It seems we have many interlinked systems that are at times rife with fraud, where the law is not being followed.

I wonder what this judge would think about this case regarding Luke and Louise’s son Bobby.

Bruises Seen on Child After Being Removed From the Home — Father Went to Take Photos, Then Social Services Phoned Police

Luke also shared that, since Bobby was taken, they have only had several short visits to see their son and are watched over the entire time. Luke also voiced his concerns about seeing bruises on his son’s body that were not there before the raid. When Luke took his phone out to take photos of the marks, social services immediately rang the police.

The video above (this is not the link for the original video but was added to YouTube after) is what started the trouble for the family. When it was sent out on Facebook it went viral, quickly amassing 3.5 million views.

There Are Concerning Issues With Bexsaro Vaccine

We must consider, is there any evidence to show that Luke may be right, that Bexsaro did cause his son’s health issues? Has it even been proven to be safe for use in infants?

In the article “Are Ineffective New Meningitis B Vaccines Causing Harm to Children?world-renowned vaccine journalist Christina England shares some worrisome information she found in the vaccine insert, and reveals this vaccine has not been tested for use in infants: “In the UK, Bexsero is the main vaccination being recommended for babies between the ages of two and six months, a vaccine that, according to the manufacturers vaccine insert, has only been approved for individuals from the ages of 10 through to 25.”

The following image is taken from the actual Bexsero vaccine insert

Christina shared even more disturbing information from the vaccine insert, which clearly states it has not been tested for safety nor for effectiveness in children under the age of 10. In fact, if you take a look at the insert, which mentions the studies carried out, many of the people  it was tested on, were aged between 13-20 years.

Adverse reaction information was only recorded for  a 30 day period after the vaccine was given, which, I am sure you may agree with,  is hardly long enough to prove its safety. Surely we should be studying vaccines for adverse reactions many months after they are given, or even better, for years?

In the UK, this vaccine is now given to infants starting in the first year of their life, where their body weight is incredibly low. Surely its common sense to consider; how do we know an infant can detox the vaccine chemicals that were tested in much older children and young adults?

This Is Why We Urge Parents to Demand to See the Vaccine Inserts

How can a vaccine that has not been tested for use, or for safety in infants, but instead was tested on children much older (with much larger body weights), then be given to millions of infant children? How can our health agencies, which are supposed to act with the welfare of our children as their first priority, add a vaccine to the schedule whose safety has not been proven?

We as parents must must demand to see the actual vaccine insert before we vaccinate, not just the glossy leaflet given to us. Otherwise, we will remain ignorant of the risks involved.

Australian Boy Also Taken From Home After Parents Spoke Out About Vaccines and Stopped Using Hospital Food

While the Australian family are under a gag order by the courts not to speak out about their son’s removal publicly — and I am not going to mention their names here — I urge you to take a look at this article about what happened to their child, who was also removed at gunpoint by Australian police.

The parents of this other boy have also taken to Facebook, urging people to make sure they know the risks involved in getting their children vaccinated. This family, who was not ‘anti-vaccine’ by any means and ensured their son received most of his infant vaccines, were feeding their son organic food. They also were giving him CBD oil which was helping his seizures massively decrease in severity.  They also prevented him from eating hospital food, which he seemed allergic to, after discovering it contained synthetic vitamins, sugars, and non-organic milk and nothing that was ‘real food’.

The video of this child being removed from his parents, also went viral, and the disturbing footage was seen where friends of the family who were at the hospital protesting, were pepper sprayed by Australian police.

We have also just heard that a young mother of 4 children in the USA has reported that all of her children were taken from her care after a visit to the hospital for one of the children.  She says that she believes that its because all four children are unvaccinated.

Please Listen to the Father’s Interview

There seems to be more and more cases of parents having their rights stripped away (you might like to check out the website medical kidnap which is as it sounds – a website dedicated to cases where parents lost their children to the hands of the medical industry) particularly when it comes to saying no to vaccines, or voicing concern about ones that have already been given.

At this stage, no one knows yet when, or if, Bobby will be returned to his parents.

Before commenting on this story, please listen to the interview with Luke speaking about what has happened to his family over this past year.

Alternatives To Viagra That May Treat Erectile Dysfunction

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Erectile dysfunction is something that affects man men. It seems the only solution is medication, but their maybe other alternatives available.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is there such a lack of resources when it comes to the research of alternatives methods for treat certain health problem?

For many men experiencing erectile dysfunction, a little blue pill known as Viagra can be a quick fix thanks to modern medicine. However, like many other quick fixes developed by the pharmaceutical industry, those benefits don’t come without some added risks. Pharmaceuticals often impose the “bandaid effect” on our bodies, covering up the problem rather than actually solving it through addressing the root cause of the health issue. 

When it comes to Viagra, choosing to take this little blue pill is sort of like choosing the blue pill in the Matrix. Sometimes we can become so blinded by the advantages of something that we forget about its potential side effects, and ultimately fail to address the real issue at hand. So, in hearing that this blue pill could seemingly fix your sex life again, many men choose to take it, while simultaneously ignoring the risks.

In reality, there are some pretty serious health risks associated with Viagra. Like many other pharmaceutical products, by ‘fixing’ one area of the body, you could be harming another.

The Viagra website states it can potentially cause some serious side effects, including:

  • Priapism, otherwise known as a long-term erection that can permanently damage your penis
  • Loss of vision in one of both eyes
  • Hearing loss, damage to hearing, or ringing in ears
  • Headache
  • Upset stomach or nausea
  • Back pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Rash
  • Heart attack or irregular heartbeat
  • Stroke
  • Death

Despite these potential risks, over 23 million men have been prescribed Viagra. This indicates there’s a huge number of men who experience erectile dysfunction, and it’s understandable they’d turn to Viagra given how normalized pharmaceuticals are in our society and how cruelly men who suffer from this problem are portrayed in the media.

Instead of going deeper and asking ourselves why our health problems occur, we tend to go to the pharmacy for a quick fix or ask our doctors to prescribe us some pills. However, just like any other health problem, erectile dysfunction is simply a symptom of your current state of being. Our health issues don’t just “happen to us,” they manifest as a result of our past and current health and wellbeing.

advertisement - learn more

Erectile dysfunction can occur due to high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, high cholesterol, hormonal problems, alcohol abuse, smoking, cocaine use, pelvic injuries, spinal issues, radiation therapy around the pelvic region, obesity, and more.

These underlying causes of erectile dysfunction may explain why some of the side effects of Viagra can be so life-threatening in the first place. When men take those blue pills, they can get lost in the excitement of the experience and end up exerting themselves beyond their physical limitations. If these men already have preexisting conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure (which could all be the root causes of their erectile dysfunction), they could already be at risk of having a heart attack or a stroke.

Though the root problem could be considered more difficult to identify and treat than taking that little blue pill, it’s ultimately the only sustainable, long-term solution, and it could save your health (or even your life)!

However, if you are in need of a quick fix while you’re trying to figure out what that root cause could be, there are plenty of alternatives to Viagra that don’t pose the same health risks.

Here’s a list of all-natural alternatives to Viagra:

L-arginine and Pycnogenol

L-arginine is a non-essential amino acid that is important during times of trauma or stress. During these times, the body is unable to produce as much as it needs, and so taking this supplement while you’re stressed is often beneficial. What’s more, studies have found that taking this amino acid supplement can treat erectile function.

It has been found to perform well when taken in combination with pycnogenol. One study involving men experiencing erectile dysfunction found that taking these two supplements together restored participants’ sexual ability to 80% in about a month. After only a few months, 92.5% of the men experienced a normal erection.

Red Ginseng

This incredible herb has been used to improve erectile dysfunction for centuries, and as it turns out, there’s now science to support the herbal wisdom behind it.

2012 study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research concluded that red ginseng can be used as an alternative to erectile dysfunction medication, and another review published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) determined that red ginseng could improve erectile dysfunction and sexual performance, though further research is required.

Maca

Maca is well-known for being nature’s own powerful aphrodisiac. In a study on patients with mild erectile dysfunction, maca was found to produce a “small but significant effect” on both the participants’ general and sexual wellbeing.

You could try adding some maca to your morning smoothies or beverages, or even take a supplement. Plus, maca is an excellent source of vitamin C, iron, potassium, and copper, so you’ll be loading up on nutrients in addition to boosting your sex drive.

Saffron

That’s right: That expensive member of your herbs and spices cabinet can also aid men who suffer from erectile dysfunction! One study found that saffron works surprisingly quickly, showing “a positive effect on sexual function with increased number and duration of erectile events seen in patients with ED even only after taking it for ten days.”

Tribulus terrestris

Tribulus terrestris is a plant often used in Ayurvedic medicine, as the root and fruits are said to benefit both male virility and general wellbeing. A study published in NCBI suggests that tribulus terrestris can be beneficial in treating men who experience erectile dysfunction.

Studies in primates, rabbits, and rats have yielded some promising results, with Tribulus terrestris being found to increase some sex hormones and effectively treating mild and moderate cases of erectile dysfunction.

Reduced Intake of Meat and Fried Foods

Some of the worst foods for your heart include meat and fried foods. Foods high in animal fat, sodium, and unhealthy oils pose serious risk to your heart and can also worsen your blood circulation, a necessary aspect of getting an erection in the first place.

As it turns out, erectile dysfunction could signify underlying heart problems, so eating “heart healthy” foods is a necessary component of good sexual health as well. Try swapping the animal protein for some plant-based protein, cutting the dairy, and ditching the fast food!

Essential Oils

There are a number of essential oils that can be used to reduce stress, increase sex drive/libido, and lower blood pressure, all of which could potentially affect erectile function. Ylang ylang, rose, and lavender essential oils are all really great at reducing stress and in some cases lowering blood pressure, too.

Spicier scents like cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove can aid in increasing sex drive and improving sexual function, and nutmeg can also improve blood circulation, an important part of getting an erection.

Final Thoughts

As with many other pharmaceuticals, taking Viagra clearly has its advantages and disadvantages. Sure, it might improve your sex life in the short term, but at what cost? Maybe you’ll take Viagra and never experience any negative side effects, but at the end of the day, there’s no guarantee of that.

Any ailment or disease that manifests in the body is always a sign of sickness or stress, and this includes erectile dysfunction; if everything is operating well in your body, then you will not run into any operational issues.

This applies for many health issues, and I encourage you to continue on your journey in searching for the root cause of all of your health problems!

Scientists Share Facts About Vaccines At World Health Organization Conference For Vaccine Safety

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Many scientists presented facts about vaccines and vaccine safety at the recent Global Health Vaccine Safety summit hosted by the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are so many people fighting against each other? Why are there "pro-vax" and "anti-vax" groups? Are these terms not useless? Do they prevent us from having discussions that need to be had and moving forward appropriately?

According to organizations like the American Medical Association as well as the World Health Organization, vaccine hesitancy among people, parents, and, as mentioned by scientists at the World Health Organization’s recent Global Vaccine Safety Summit, health professionals and scientists continues to increase. This is no secret, as vaccines have become a very popular topic over the past few years alone. In fact, the World Health Organization has listed vaccine hesitancy as one of the biggest threats to global health security.

The issue of vaccine hesitancy is no secret, for example, one study (of many) published in the journal EbioMedicine outlines this point, stating in the introduction:

Over the past two decades several vaccine controversies have emerged in various countries, including France, inducing worries about severe adverse effects and eroding confidence in health authorities, experts, and science (Larson et al., 2011). These two dimensions are at the core of the vaccine hesitancy (VH) observed in the general population. VH is defined as delay in acceptance of vaccination, or refusal, or even acceptance with doubts about its safety and benefits, with all these behaviors and attitudes varying according to context, vaccine, and personal profile, despite the availability of vaccine services (Group, 2014,Larson et al., 2014Dubé et al., 2013). VH presents a challenge to physicians who must address their patients’ concerns about vaccines and ensure satisfactory vaccination coverage.

At the conference, this fact was emphasized by Professor Heidi Larson, a Professor of Anthropology and the Risk and Decision Scientist Director at the Vaccine Confidence Project. She is referenced, as you can see, by the authors in the study above. At the conference, she emphasized that safety concerns among people and health professionals seem to be the biggest issue regarding vaccine hesitancy.

She also stated,

The other thing that’s a trend, and an issue, is not just confidence in providers but confidence of health care providers, we have a very wobbly health professional frontline that is starting to question vaccines and the safety of vaccines. That’s a huge problem, because to this day any study I’ve seen… still, the most trusted person on any study I’ve seen globally is the health care provider, and if we lose that, we’re in trouble.

She also brought up her belief that safety studies are incomplete, and that to continue to refer people to the same old science on safety is not adequately addressing their new concerns because better studies need to be done. Furthermore, she recommended that doctors and professionals forego name-calling with ‘hostile language’ such as “anti-vax”. She recommended encouraging people to ask questions about vaccine safety. After all, it makes sense–in order to make our vaccines safer and more effective, you would think everybody would be on board with constant questioning and examination. After all, that’s just good science, and it’s in everyone’s best interest.

Another interesting point that caught my attention was brought up by Dr. Martin Howell Friede, Coordinator of Initiative For Vaccine Research at the World Health Organization. He brought up the topic of vaccine adjuvants like thimerosal or aluminum, for example. In certain vaccines, without these adjuvants the vaccine simply doesn’t work. Dr. Friede mentioned that there are clinical studies that blame adjuvants for adverse events seen as a result of administering vaccines, and how people in general often blame adverse reactions to vaccines being the result of the vaccine adjuvant. He mentioned aluminum specifically.

He showed concern given the fact that “without adjuvants, we are not going to have the next generation of vaccines.”

He also stated that,

When we add an adjuvant, it’s because it is essential. We do not add adjuvants to vaccines because we want to do so, but when we add them it adds to the complexity. And I give courses every year on ‘how do you develop vaccines’ and ‘how do you make vaccines’ and the first lesson is, while you are making your vaccine, if you can avoid using an adjuvant, please do so. Lesson two is, if you’re going to use an adjuvant, use one that has a history of safety, and lesson three is, if you’re not going to do that, think very carefully.

Furthermore, he criticized the assumption that if an adjuvant like aluminum appears to be safe for one vaccine, that it should be not be presumed to be safe for other vaccines. Dr. Friede said that current safety surveillance is quite effective at determining immediate effects (such as immediate injury to the arm at the injection site), but not as effective in identifying “systemic” long term adverse events.

When I heard him mention lesson two, that “if you’re going to use an adjuvant, use one that has a history of safety,” it instantly reminded me of aluminum because it’s an adjuvant used in multiple vaccines like the HPV vaccine, for example, but has no history of safety.

A study published as far back as 2011 in Current Medical Chemistry makes this quite clear, emphasizing that,

Aluminum is an experimentally demonstrated neurotoxin and the most commonly used vaccine adjuvant. Despite almost 90 years of widespread use of aluminum adjuvants, medical science’s understanding about their mechanisms of action is still remarkably poor. There is also a concerning scarcity of data on toxicology and pharmacokinetics of these compounds. In spite of this, the notion that aluminum in vaccines is safe appears to be widely accepted. Experimental research, however, clearly shows that aluminum adjuvants have a potential to induce serious immunological disorders in humans. (source)

The key sentence here is that “their mechanisms of action is still remarkably poor.” Based on what Dr. Friede said at the conference, it really makes you think.

A study published in BMC Med in 2015 found that “Evidence that aluminum-coated particles phagocytozed in the injected muscle and its draining lymph nodes can disseminate within phagocytes throughout the body and slowly accumulate in the brain further suggests that alum safety should be evaluated in the long term.”

This brings me to another point made at the conference by many scientists in attendance, which was that according to some of them, vaccines seem to lack the appropriate safety testing. This is another big reason why people are so confused and have voiced their concerns about safety, as mentioned above by Professor Larson.

Marion Gruber, PhD and Director of the FDA Office of Vaccines Research and Review, questioned the scope of vaccine safety surveillance and monitoring during pre-licensing vaccine trials as well during the conference.

One source of confusion might be that ‘high-ranking’ health authorities sometimes making conflicting statements. For example, Soumya Swaminathan, MD and Chief Scientist at the World Health Organization, stated at the conference,

I don’t think we can overemphasize the fact that we really don’t have very good safety monitoring systems in many countries and this adds to the miscommunication and the misapprehensions because we’re not able to give clear cut answers when people ask questions about deaths that have occurred due to particular vaccines… One should be able to give a very factual account of what exactly is happening, what the cause of deaths are, but in most cases there’s some obfuscation at that level and therefore there’s less and less trust then in the system.

Prior to this statement, in a promotional video released just days before the conference began, she stated that “we have vaccine safety systems, robust vaccine safety systems.”

She completely contradicted herself.

If you’d like access to the entire conference, you can do so at the World Health Organization’s website.

The Takeaway

The scientific community should never stop questioning, especially when it comes to medication. Based on the information that’s come out at this conference, it’s quite clear that there is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to the development of vaccines and vaccine safety overall. Discussion is always encouraging, as long as it’s peaceful and facts are presented like they were at this conference. It’s better to understand the reasons why a lot of people are hesitant about vaccination and appropriately respond, instead of simply using ridicule and hatred because that’s never effective and both parties cannot move forward that way. At the end of the day, scientists should never cease to question.

How To Connect With The Deeper Part Of Yourself On A Daily Basis

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Many people believe that there are spiritual/metaphysical aspects to themselves, that there exists a deeper part of ourselves that we all have the ability to connect to.

  • Reflect On:

    How often do you take the time to connect with the deeper aspects of yourself? How often do you practice mindfulness techniques, if you desire to do so?

In our busy lives, we might find it tough at times to connect to deeper parts of ourselves on a daily basis. Yet, it’s so important that we not only take the time to meditate, but also to check in with ourselves to see more clearly how we’re feeling, what we want to do at various points in our lives, and ultimately to get guidance, on a more conscious level, from our higher selves.

First off, what is our higher self? In my definition, our higher self is our soul. It’s the aspect of us that is observing this entire experience we call life. It’s the aspect of ourselves that is here to experience human life through this vehicle we call a body and through the game we call life. Through a number of experiences — ‘good’ and ‘bad,’ as we like to label them — we gain a deeper understanding at our soul level of all we can create. Simply put, when you have a gut feeling, when you get a strong love or passion for something, when you have foresight, it’s your higher self connecting with your conscious mind.

Becoming More Aware of Thoughts

I thought it would be helpful to offer one potential method of becoming aware of the connection we have with our higher self. We can use this method to receive guidance on decisions we might be looking to make or feelings we might have about certain experiences, or simply to help become more aligned with our soul’s purpose at any given moment. I often check in with myself in this way a couple of times a month, but the more you practice being present, the more your higher self is already in your awareness.

First we have to remember to be aware of the labels and definitions we put on things and ourselves, as this is the first step toward becoming more aware of the mind and ego. Why do I bring this up? Mainly because these states of consciousness, mind and ego, are what we are most often engaged in when we are “out of touch” throughout the day. By becoming aware of this, we create a reference point of what the mind feels like compared to what no-mind feels like. This helps us to get more clear on connecting with our higher self versus just hearing mind thoughts.

As you are more present and pay attention to the way the monkey mind thinks and creates thoughts, you will begin to not only discern the patterns in which it operates, but also the feeling or frequency that you/it emits when those thoughts run rampant. The more you pay attention, the clearer it gets.

How to Connect to Your Higher Self

Allow yourself time to learn this. You may have to practice this method several times to connect regularly. The steps are simple and I will explain each in detail below.

1. Sit and breathe to become more relaxed.
2. Place your hand or fingers over your heart chakra.
3. Ask your question and feel through the physical connection of your hand over your heart.

Start by relaxing and taking some deep breaths in and out to begin clearing your mind as best as possible. Focusing on breathing works very well when trying to slow the mind down. Don’t worry or fret if thoughts come in; just allow them to pass by not following or attaching to them.

Alternatively, you can stare at a candle flame if you prefer a visual meditation. In this method, do the same thing, letting any thoughts that might come into the mind just float away as you continue to breathe. After about maybe two to five minutes of breathing and quieting the mind, you should begin to feel a little more relaxed and in the moment. This is an important space to be in for the exercise.

Next, put your first two fingers or hand on your sternum area (heart chakra) and turn your attention to feeling. By bringing our hands into play and placing them in a particular area on our bodies, we tend to have an easier time focusing through the physical connection on the area where our hand is. Since our higher self is often felt through our hearts, I have found that focusing on the heart chakra helps in discerning our intuition from our minds more clearly.

Reference for the heart chakra location.

Next, you can begin asking some questions and feeling for your answers. Try not to get too concerned with what it should feel like or whether you should hear anything or see anything. The most important thing here is that we are learning and developing our innate intuition skills and figuring out what works best for us. This is a process, and it may take a couple weeks of practice before you truly start to get into it. Having patience and sticking with it is the key here.

After you have asked a question, it’s typically the very first answer that comes to your awareness that is your higher self. Whatever comes after is often the mind work that starts when the ego begins to doubt what came in. “That can’t be it,” it often says.

You can go on asking more questions after this if you like, but this is the method. It’s a simple technique that, when practiced regularly, is quite powerful. In fact, I’ve found most powerful practices are quite simple.

It is best to do this exercise with no expectation for results. Having expectations can often cloud the experience and get us waiting or looking for something too intensely. As a result, we may miss what arises in place of what we were looking for. Remember, it takes time to discern between mind and higher self. I keep repeating this because we often will get discouraged and stop because it ‘didn’t work’ the first couple of times. You can do this! Just remember not to overcomplicate the process with doubt.

As you practice more and more, the connection builds, much like a muscle does, and a simple breath in and out usually connects you very quickly. Have fun with it and don’t get too frustrated. Be at peace and have patience. You can also use this method to simply enjoy some quiet time or even step into a creative space — no question and answer necessary.
