A Deeper Discussion On The Defeated Virginia Bill Allowing Abortions Up Until Birth

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A Bill was proposed in Virginia that aims to make it easier for a woman to get a late-term abortion. Subsequent comments made about it by the Governor of Virginia have some suggesting that this bill pushes infanticide.

  • Reflect On:

    Can we see how the abortion issue is so polarized these days that there is little room to have the kinds of discussions that bring us together on this matter and try to define who we want to be as a collective?

The proposal of a Bill in Virginia that aims to make it easier for a woman to get a late-term abortion, and subsequent comments made about it by the Governor of Virginia, have set off a firestorm in public discourse, and understandably so.

However, rather than getting into the polarized ‘discussions’ that are taking place both in the political arena and between everyday citizens, let’s take a seat above the fray and try to see what’s going on here at a higher level.

If you consume information on this subject from mainstream media, what is inevitably highlighted are the most extreme conclusions coming from the two sides, where the battle of rhetoric between left and right seems to be what is considered newsworthy rather than the issue at hand.

And this is as it was meant to be. For there is an agenda behind how mainstream media reports on the news. As long as it keeps people in a polarized state it actually maintains the system in place and forces people to stay within the control matrix. Those who continue to rigidly identify as a Democrat or as a Republican, as Pro-Choice or Pro-Life, are leaving themselves open to being controlled. The mainstream narrative will continue to think for you, rather than create a space in which you can think for yourself, the latter being one of the main aims of conscious media.

The Facts About The Virginia Bill

Let’s begin with the facts about the Virginia Bill and see if we can navigate through what has happened with a greater degree of emotional neutrality and perspective.

Kathy Tran Introduces The Bill. Kathy Tran is a Democrat who was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates in 2017. She introduced HB 2491 earlier this year, which sought to change the number of physicians required for an abortion to be sanctioned as well as broaden the health circumstances under which an abortion would be allowed. As with many bills, this one was introduced with little fanfare and only really came to public attention in a committee hearing on Monday, where she was questioned about the bill by fellow delegate Todd Gilbert, a Republican.

The Committee Hearing. If you watch the video closely–and I believe it is certainly worthwhile to do so–you will see in Kathy Tran a person who is pushing for significant changes in abortion law, but seems neither well-informed about the bill itself nor a particularly passionate defender of it. Tran often evades questions or gives inappropriate answers, or simply doesn’t have an answer and defends her lack of knowledge by saying “I’m not a physician,” while she and her lawyer rue the fact that “expert witnesses” who are physicians were not present because they were “seeing patients.”

The most significant line of questioning can be illustrated in this exchange in which Gilbert is concerned specifically about the leeway being afforded to allowing abortions right up until birth based on a physician’s assessment of the risk to a woman’s mental health:

Gilbert: “How late in the third trimester could a physician perform an abortion if he indicated it would impair the mental health of the woman?”

Tran: “Through the third trimester. The third trimester goes all the way up to 40 weeks.”

Gilbert: “Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth, would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so certified? She’s dilating.”

Tran: “My bill would allow that.”

It took a while for Gilbert to make clear to Tran that he was asking about mental health only, and got no answer from either Tran or her lawyer as to what kind of standards or examples of mental health risks would be considered legitimate. However, Tran finally did concede that the bill did not require the physician to have any ‘specialized training in mental health’ in order to certify a third-trimester abortion based on mental health risks.

Governor Northam’s Comments. The Governor of Virginia stepped in with some ill-advised comments during station WTOP’s Ask The Governor radio show two days later. Northam went strong on the stance that what a women does with her body should be her decision in consultations with her physician(s). But he did nothing to distinguish whether a baby that had actually been delivered was no longer a part of the mother’s body. Here are the comments that caused the greatest ruckus:

“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

Now, it must be said that when Northam talks about third-trimester abortions, he created the context that ‘it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities, there may be a fetus that’s non-viable.’ But still, he seems to be going beyond even what Tran was proposing, saying here that a baby that is delivered and is still alive may be subject to a decision between the doctor and the mother as to whether that baby should live or die. There is a bit of vagueness and contradiction in his thought process, so you can follow along in this short clip and judge what he really meant to say.

What Is Really Going On Here?

Does the evidence suggest that the Democratic party should be considered supporters of infanticide, which represents the killing of a child after that child had been delivered? Kathy Tran has since said that she ‘misspoke’ when she said that her bill would allow a woman’s request for an abortion while she was in labor to be executed. Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Gov. Northam told Vox his comments were “absolutely not” a reference to infanticide, and that they “focused on the tragic and extremely rare case in which a woman with a nonviable pregnancy or severe fetal abnormalities went into labor.”

But really, this has little to do with Kathy Tran and Ralph Northam. This has much more to do with the long-term social engineering plans of the powerful elite that are behind the Democratic party. While I believe there is some validity in a woman’s right to choose, there appears to be a darker overriding agenda to gradually desensitize human beings to the sanctity of life, which would then allow practices such as pedophilia, child blood sacrifice, and cannibalism to continue in the shadows with increasingly less resistance. 

Kathy Tran, by all appearances, is hardly part of this group, and in all likelihood unaware of their sinister agenda. The first-term representative, however, was likely chosen by the party brass to introduce this bill because of the optics, being not only a woman but a mother of 4 who breastfed her daughter on the floor of the Virginia House of Delegates. Who better to introduce a sensitive piece of legislation that further tries to facilitate late-term abortions?

For his part, Governor Northram has been instructed to be a champion of women’s rights, often repeating the mantra that ‘men shouldn’t be deciding what women do with their bodies’ and that ‘we want the government not to be involved in these types of decisions, we want these decisions to be made by the mothers and their [health] providers.’ With Tran’s bill attempting to reduce the number of physicians needed to consent to a late-term abortion down to 1, this would enable pro-abortion doctors to use their authority and knowledge to subtly steer women towards the decision to have an abortion.

Where Planned Parenthood Comes In

And this is where Planned Parenthood enters into the equation. This organization receives $500 million in funding from the government each year, and has disclosed that it contributed $30 million back to the Democratic Party (source), (with actual undisclosed contributions allegedly closer to $65 million (source, post 2674)).

This closed loop reveals one of the fulcrums of this abortion agenda fronted by the Democratic party. As I discussed in my article ‘Illuminati Pedophilia: Attempts To Normalize Sex Between Adults And Children (Part 2),’ there is fairly incontestable evidence that Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of human fetuses for tremendous profits.

Let’s look again at the main three aspects of HB2491:

1) Eliminates the requirement that an abortion in the second trimester of pregnancy and prior to the third trimester be performed in a hospital.

2) Eliminates all the procedures and processes, including the performance of an ultrasound, required to effect a woman’s informed written consent to the performance of an abortion.

3) Eliminates the requirement that two other physicians certify that a third trimester abortion is necessary to prevent the woman’s death or impairment of her mental or physical health, as well as the need to find that any such impairment to the woman’s health would be substantial and irremediable.

All of these aspects point to facilitating abortions that could further erode a societal respect for human life. They make it easier for a single doctor who is aligned with the Planned Parenthood agenda to make a personal assessment without any psychiatric training about the risks of the delivery to the mother’s ‘mental health,’ thereby subtly influencing mothers to consent more to abortions, which then enriches the business end of the Planned Parenthood agenda.

Backlash Against Northam

While the global elite may hope to eventually achieve some conditional acceptance of infanticide, given that they have absolutely no regard for human life, their plan has always unfolded slowly and incrementally, done in the shadows as much as possible. They know full well that at this time they cannot just introduce legislation that would permit allowing  a woman to ‘abort’ a baby after it had been delivered, because it would cause outrage and bring attention to their agenda. As it turns out, this is exactly what has happened.

In this regard, Governor Northam unwittingly let the cat out of the bag, and now he is being demonized by the Democratic party with some racist scandal from a photo that appears on Northam’s medical school yearbook page which shows Northam  dressed in blackface and another student in a KKK costume, obviously for some kind of costume party. On the basis of this one picture from 35 years ago conveniently surfacing, the Democratic party is trying to hide their own agenda by distancing themselves from Northam and having many party members now echoing the call for him to resign as governor. Too bad Northam couldn’t be as effective as Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo, who recently celebrated the passing of legislation in New York that loosens restrictions on abortions.

It’s Not Just About Democrats

While the abortion agenda has long been the domain of the Democratic party, it should be made clear here that the overall agenda of the global elite has always run through both parties to a large extent. The global elite will advance their agenda in ways that are always disguised to associate with each party’s particular policies. While the Democratic party is used to erode the sanctity of human life, the Republican party may be used more to ensure that a global corporatocracy is strengthened and any signs of sympathy towards socialist doctrines and a minimum standard of living for the poor are effectively quashed.

The fight that rages between Democrats and Republicans has long been to give the illusion of choice to the people, to make us feel that the power of our vote allows us to be masters of our own destiny. In reality, from our seat high above the fray, we see that this has been a false dichotomy which only serves to polarize us, and no matter which party is seen as ‘winning’ or ‘losing’ a particular battle, the outcome is designed to continue to advance the ultimate agenda of the global elite, which is world domination and the enslavement of humanity.

The Takeaway

On most issues that are subjected to the violent political tug-of-war between the left and the right, the everyday person feels that they have to identify with one polarity or the other if they want to participate in the discussion. Back when I was younger, and the passing of Roe v. Wade was still in its infancy, the abortion debate was conducted with a bit more openness and curiosity into the nature of what it is to be human, and how we wanted to govern ourselves as a society.

I was always one who supported a woman’s right to choose what to do with her body, and so in a sense I always supported a women’s right to an abortion to the extent that I believed what was being aborted was a part of her body and not a discrete living being. That does not mean I supported the performing of abortions as such; however, I did favor that those women who had good reasons to want or need to abort a fetus should be able to do it in a safe way rather than in an unsanctioned back-room clinic.

That said, two questions remained difficult to answer. The first was, what reasons (aside from the birthing process threatening the life of the mother) could be accepted as justifying getting an abortion? The second was, at what point does the fetus stop being a part of the mother’s anatomy and start being a discrete being on its own? On one extreme, the fetus is considered a separate being from the moment of conception; on the other extreme, the fetus is considered a separate being only after the umbilical cord has been cut. Generally speaking, the debate occurred in between these two extremes, and can only be resolved by reasonable people in an open discussion of the rights and essence of both a mother and a fetus, as well as the essence of who we are as a society. There was a sense of curiosity, and some humility in terms of nobody really knowing the definitive answers to these questions, but being willing to put thoughts and feelings forth in order to arrive at some consensus in terms of legislation on this matter.

Today, the matter is dominated by extremists, and that fits in with the globalist agenda. It is important that those of us who are awakening to the big picture disengage from the polarized discussion, and realize that such discussions about the nature of who we are and who we want to be as people and as a society have to take place in that seat high above the fray of polarity, and in recognition of how this and many other important issues have been co-opted by powerful forces.

Full Moon In Aquarius: Rationality & Seriousness

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

We are having a Full Moon in Aquarius on July 23rd/24th. It will appear the brightest on the night of the 23rd throughout most of the world and on the night of the 24th in the time zones East of Japan. This is the peak of the Lunar cycle that began with a New Moon in Cancer on July 9th/10th.

The energies of a Full Moon are strongest in the days surrounding it yet its astrological configurations also play a part over the following two weeks. You may start to see its themes slowly build up after the New Moon prior.

This is a period in which we feel a push-pull between two opposing signs, in this case being the Moon in Aquarius and the Sun in Leo. It can play out as either a conflict, an integration, or some sort of dynamic between the energies of both signs. The Moon reflects the expression of feeling and emotion while the Sun reflects the expression of ego and conscious self.

We may feel this opposition happening individually within us and/or we can also experience it play out around us; with some people (or circumstances) expressing the Aquarius side and others expressing the Leo side. In some cases, Full Moons can also reflect/trigger some sort of change or release.

Full Moon In Aquarius Opposite Sun In Leo

Leo season began 36 hours before the Full Moon and will continue until August 22nd/23rd. This is the sign of self-expression, creativity, love, affection, children, courage, vitality, passion, leadership, generosity, and playfulness. Ruled by the Sun, it is also about shining in our power and being in alignment with what really lights us up and gets us excited.

The negative expressions of Leo can be egotistical, self-absorbed, authoritarian, dramatic, stubborn, jealous, and hot-tempered.  As it is associated with seeking praise and attention, it can be demanding of respect and be boisterous without considering or caring about how others respond to that.

The Full Moon highlights and brings the energies of the opposing sign of Aquarius into this Leo backdrop. This is the sign of friends, networks, social dynamics, social issues, groups, teams, humanity, and being in the best interest of the collective. This energy is unconventional, idealistic, innovative, progressive, scientific, original, inventive, technological, reforming, and even revolutionary.

Negatively, Aquarius can be overly detached, aloof, unemotional, and very invested in the mind at the expense of the heart. Traditionally ruled by Saturn, it can also be unyielding when it comes to the ideas and perspectives that it has already decided on.

Both Leo and Aquarius have some similarities. They are ‘Fixed’ signs and therefore can both be determined yet stubborn. They are also both associated with originality and authenticity. In Aquarius, this comes from its unconventional and innovative attributes while in Leo it comes from being inspired by its heart centred self-expression.

Full Moon Quincunx Venus, Conjunct Saturn, & Square Uranus

This Full Moon is in a quincunx with Venus which has recently entered Virgo. Our feelings, emotions, needs, or domestic lives may be at odds with friendships, values, finances, pleasure, or matters of love. It can be hard to integrate these areas but being flexible and making adjustments can be the solution.

The Full Moon is moving towards Saturn in the same sign. This can reflect a serious energy and we may be faced with limitations, restrictions, delays, or obstacles. We or others may be emotionally distant, pessimistic, or reserved. However, this can be good for some sort of effort that requires discipline, structure, and orderliness. After the Full Moon period, some of these energies will be strong again on August 1st/2nd.

Following the conjunction with Saturn, the Moon forms a square aspect with the disruptive Uranus in Taurus. This is activating the square between Saturn and Uranus that is happening throughout the year which I’ve covered in previous articles. Themes around ‘old versus new’, ‘restrictions versus freedom’, ‘the status quo versus revolution’, ‘commitments/responsibilities versus liberation’, ‘elder versus youth’, ‘progressiveness versus tradition’ and so forth.

Jupiter Going Back Into Aquarius

Jupiter entered its home sign of Pisces in mid-May for a short stint as it is returning back into Aquarius on July 28th/29th. The planet of expansion, freedom, beliefs, perspective, education, is unrestrained in Pisces and gets to express itself more ideally in this sign. We have seen examples of this as many jurisdictions loosened up covid related restrictions during this period.

With it going back into Aquarius, a traditionally Saturn ruled sign with Saturn currently present there, Jupiter will be more inhibited until late December when it re-enters Pisces again. It’s possible that during this 5 month period may experience more restrictive measures return or new ones implemented. We may also experience this in different ways in our personal lives such as not being able to expand the way we’d like to. However, this might not be noticeable immediately.

The combination of Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius (which began last December) can be good for building towards something or planting seeds pertaining to some sort of technological integration, social networking, collective or social pursuits, activism, new scientific approaches to things, and innovation.

Venus Square Lunar Nodes, Mars Opposite Jupiter

Venus will be in a square with the Lunar Nodes which will be strong from July 28th-30th. We may be reflecting on the past and future, or perhaps at a crossroads, when it comes to friendships, love, values, or financial matters. We may need to complete something and address what is holding us back  to help us move on and take a step forward in an evolutionary way when it comes to these areas of life. Venus is in Virgo so therefore discernment, details, practicality, health, organization, or efficiency may be key.

At this time Mars will be switching from Leo to Virgo while in an opposition to Jupiter. We may begin to feel the need to apply ourselves in a way that is more productive, sustainable, healthy, and clean. However, we can overextend ourselves and take on more than we can handle. This can also play out as conflicts around beliefs, perspectives, opinions, or judgements.

Mercury’s Superior Conjunction

Mercury will be in its Superior Conjunction on August 1st/2nd which is in an important phase of Mercury’s cycle with the Sun. From this point onward we may have a better perception around certain things that were seeded or occurred in the previous two months which may also help our momentum forward. .

Circumstances and developments that happen at this time can help us gain more clarity or facilitate necessary realizations to help us make the right decisions and appropriate mental focus. During this conjunction, the Sun and Mercury will be opposing Saturn which can play out as hindrances or the need to be pragmatic as part of this process.

Things To Consider

How can you balance or integrate your personal passions with the needs of the collective? How can you resolve any conflicts between leadership and a team or group? Are you experiencing any challenges or conflict between your heart and intellect? What areas of your life do you need to be more orderly, structured, disciplined, or take more seriously? Is there anything that you need to separate from? How can you apply yourself in a more noble way?

These are just some examples of themes that could come up or ways to approach this period; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out as well.  If you wish to do any sort of intentional release, it is best to do so after it begins to wane following the peak or during the two weeks afterwards when it is waning before the next New Moon. The exact peak of this Full Moon is at 2:37am Universal Time on July 24th, night of the 23rd. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

In this video I explore how to look in our minds and bodies for resistance towards new solutions and ideas. If we are to create a more thriving world, what has to happen within us? How do we use new and emerging solutions in a pure form, without applying the old dominance or capitalistic stories to them?

It can, very understandably, be hard to imagine something different than what we’re doing now. Especially when we consider we don’t know HOW things would change or what will happen to the current life we’ve built.

What if real global solutions involve shifting our long term plans? How do we gain a sense of comfort and stability in challenges we seek to solve at their core?

Every time I’ve been faced with some pretty big changes I had to make in my life, if I ever sensed resistance in myself, I had to find it in my body as well as navigate it in my mind.  I explain more in the video below.

Raising Our Vibration Through Compassion & Unconditional Love

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

An internationally recognized nonprofit research and education organization, the Institute of HeartMath dedicates itself to helping people reduce stress, self-regulate emotions, and build energy and resilience for healthy, happy lives. HeartMath tools, technology, and training teach people to rely on the intelligence of their hearts in concert with that of their minds at home, school, work, and play.

It’s becoming clearer to many of us that working together with kindness, compassion and acceptance are the missing pieces for resetting humanity’s fast and furious trajectory into separation and division. It’s also becoming obvious that we cannot create solutions from the same consciousness level that’s creating the problems. Raising our consciousness vibration for drawing peaceful solutions is an undertaking that calls for kindness, forgiveness and an inclusive love that respects our differences.

A large portion of their research has investigated heart and brain interaction. Researchers have examined how the heart and brain communicate with each other and how that affects our consciousness and the way in which we perceive our world. For example, when a person is feeling really positive emotions like gratitude, love, or appreciation, the heart beats out a certain message. Because the heart beats out the largest electromagnetic field produced in the body, it can yield significant data for researchers.

HeartMath has discovered that  emotional information is actually coded and modulated into these fields. By learning to shift our emotions, we are changing the information coded into the magnetic fields that are radiated by the heart, and that can impact those around us. We are fundamentally and deeply connected with each other and the planet itself.

This is very important work, as it shows how the heart plays an important role far beyond what is commonly known. For instance, did you know that your heart emits electromagnetic fields that change according to your emotions, or that the human heart has a magnetic field that can be measured up to several feet away from the human body? Did you know that positive emotions create physiological benefits in your body, and that you can boost your immune system by conjuring up positive emotions? Did you know that negative emotions can create nervous system chaos, and that positive emotions do the complete opposite? Did you know that the heart has a system of neurons that have both short term and long term memory, and that their signals sent to the brain can affect our emotional experiences? Did you know that in fetal development, the heart forms and starts beating before the brain is developed? Did you know that a mother’s brainwaves can synchronize to her baby’s heartbeats? Did you know that the heart sends more information to the brain than vice versa?

All of these facts, published research papers, and more can be accessed at heartmath.org.

I recently came across an article published by HeartMath titled “Raising Our Vibration Through Compassion & Unconditional Love” written by Sara Childre, Pres. of HeartMath Institute and Doc Childre, HeartMath Founder. I thought I would post it below for those who are interested.

Vibrations

HeartMath and many systems use the term vibration in reference to the quality of thoughts, feelings, emotions and attitudes that are generated and influenced by our beliefs, memories, choices, environmental stimuli and more. For example, you often hear people say, “I had to leave that office, the vibes were so low it was draining my energy, or, “I felt a lift from being in her positive vibration.”

The vibration of our moods, attitudes, thoughts and feelings can rise and fall throughout the day, based on our actions and reactions to others, ourselves, or to life’s issues. The vibes we emanate to others and to the environment vary, based on our resilience for balancing our mind, emotions and disposition – especially in today’s dynamic emotional climate.

Lower-level vibrations can occur at every turn in connection with frustration, anger, disappointment, sadness, judgment, comparisons and much more. These emotions are part of being human, but it is within our power to shift out of these debilitating feelings into higher vibrational attitudes and perceptions.

An easy way to maintain a higher vibration is to interweave the qualities of our heart in our connections and interactions. These heart qualities include love, care, compassion, kindness, appreciation, forgiveness, and more. Anyone who experiences these qualities knows their power to lift our feelings into a kinder and more stress-free outlook.

Raising Others’ Vibrations

For evidence that the heartfelt intentions of one individual can raise the heart vibration of others, HeartMath cites studies it has conducted. You may be familiar with the study in which a dog’s incoherent heart rhythms became coherently aligned with a boy’s heart rhythms as he radiated intentional love and care to his dog. Go to Josh and Mable to read more.

Science tells us that human beings and all creatures radiate an electromagnetic field produced by the heartbeat. Our feelings broadcast like radio waves through this field. When you are in the presence of a group of friends, family or others, everyone’s thoughts, feelings and attitudes are intermingling in your immediate area — which HeartMath calls the field environment.

Another study, with 40 participants, explored the effects of being in a coherent field environment. The participants were divided into 10 groups of four people who were seated around a table. They were all connected to equipment that simultaneously measured their level of heart rhythm coherence. Three of the participants had been previously trained in the Heart Lock-In technique and were instructed to get into a coherent state at random times unknown by the fourth untrained person. Overall, as the coherent vibration of the three HeartMath-trained participants increased, the untrained person’s coherence level also measurably increased from being in that more coherent field environment.

Poised in Higher Vibrations

When poised in our higher vibration, we experience many benefits. Decisions and solutions flow more easily due to increased access to our heart’s intuitive wisdom; our discernment becomes more inclusive and our choices become clearer and more effective; it gets much easier to deflect frustration, anxiety, impatience and other chronic stress producers that strain our critical thinking and reasoning.

Most all of us feel more self-secure when in our higher vibrational composure, yet it can be harder to maintain in the midst of challenges and ramped up stress. We can learn to lift our vibration to meet challenges by adding heart qualities of conscious care, kindness, gratitude or compassion in our interactions. As these qualities of love move through our system, it lifts our attitudes automatically for the highest way to deal with the situation at hand.

Unconditional love and compassion are among the highest vibrations of love and are not subject to preconditions, limitations, or requirements of others. They serve the greater interest and benefit of all sentient beings and the environment in which they exist. Many people are realizing that unconditional love and compassion are from our higher consciousness potentials with the capacity for healing and attracting solutions for social transformation.

Uncountable numbers of people have experienced the benefits of compassion and more individuals are resonating with this powerful expression of love in these times of robust change. Practicing compassion is something we can do that benefits all, yet it takes heartfelt commitment to anchor this responsibility to the whole of which we are a part.

Summary of Benefits From Raising Our Vibration Levels

  • Increased care and kindness flow more automatically in our connections.
  • We are more clear-minded and self-secure in our choices and actions.
  • Our mind and emotions interact more harmoniously to suit our needs.
  • We deflect common stress triggers – frustration, impatience, intolerance, etc.
  • We are much more resilient and resistant to fears and self-doubt.
  • Our heart’s deeper care is not overridden by our disruptive mind and emotions.
  • The lift in our attitude wards off anxiety, excessive worries and overwhelm.
  • We tend to lift others and the environment when our vibration is up.
  • We are less judgmental and intolerant with others and ourselves, which prevents mega stress accumulation.
  • Lifting our vibration amplifies our intuitive heart feelings for better choices and outcomes.

Simple Exercises to Raise Your Vibration

(Adapted from exercises in the Heart Intelligence: Connecting with the Intuitive Guidance of the Heart book.)

How to replace lower vibrational feelings, such as sadness, anger, insecurity, anxiety, self-judgment, rejection, etc.

1. Exercise: Find a quiet place where, for a few minutes, you can breathe easily, imagining with each breath that your mind, emotions and body are becoming still inside. In this stillness, desire the uplifting feeling you would like to have, and as you breathe, imagine breathing this new feeling into your being for a while. Imagine you are creating it with your breath.

2. Another Exercise: When feeling low, just sit quietly and imagine radiating love, compassion and stillness into your mental and emotional nature. Self-care is often allowing ourselves to have a low moment without compounding it with self-criticism. When our light is dim, it helps to give ourselves the feeling of compassionate heart warmth that we would give a child or a pet that is infirm. Even if it doesn’t stop the pain, we know it can help energetically. If we feel awkward while trying this, it helps to ask ourselves, “What’s the difference in nurturing ourselves with compassionate intention than taking the vitamins and health foods we consume for self-care?” Or, “Why do we teach kids to put their hand over a hurt area and radiate sunshine from their heart to help it feel better?” We do this because it’s a natural expression of self-compassion, with benefits to their mental, emotional and physical nature.

You can soon feel a difference when doing these exercises, unless extremely challenged. If it doesn’t work the first time, be patient and simply try again later. Being genuine makes a difference. This activates your heart energy. Practicing for a few days in a row strengthens your capacity to reset unwanted feelings and lower vibrations.
