We have all experienced altered states of consciousness while awake. Any time you are so absorbed in something that nothing else exists you are in what I call sacred space. It is the state of who you really are.

You can set about deliberately to achieve this state of grace with a few simple steps.

First, plant your feet firmly on the floor. You need to be anchored to the earth so you will remember your journey. Imagine that you have roots coming out the soles of your feet, and they are extending all the way to the centre of the earth. Now, feel the slow, steady heartbeat of the earth through your feet, and allow it to move up your legs. It may feel like a throbbing, or even a tingling. It’s all good.

For those of you who have given birth, this next part should be a cinch. The breathing is key to an altered state. LaMaze or even Yogic breathing are recommended. To check that you are breathing properly, place your hand just below your navel. As you breathe in, direct the breath to where the hand is. It should come out as your lower abdomen expands. As you breathe out, your hand should go inward. This is the cleansing breath of LaMaze breathing, and hey! It calms the mind, emotions, body, and spirit!

I always like to intensify my experience. I breathe in love, and give it a colour. I make it brighter and larger with each breath. The love I breathe in is that which I felt when I first beheld my newborn babies. I like to give it a golden/white colour, sprinkled with sparkly fairy dust, because who can’t use more fairy dust in their life?

Now that your whole energy field is vibrating to the frequency of love, no matter how upset you may have been earlier, it isn’t present in the presence of love. There is only love that exists in this state. When you have a good love vibe going on, you are on the same frequency as your guides.

Imagine the energies of your spirit guides and guardian angels about three feet above your head, and allow their love to come down, and settle on your shoulders like a warm, soft blanket. Accept, and allow this.

You can use this altered state to ask questions of your guides, and wait for an answer to come. It will probably be in the form of a thought in your head. Doesn’t matter what form it takes. You are protected by love, and only loving entities will connect with you.

I recommend this exercise as a five-minute vacation for you, anytime you are stressed. Surely you can find five minutes? In the bathroom, maybe?

How many of us really trust our own perceptions?
Remember being a little kid, having the time of your life
playing outside?

Yo mama: “Put a sweater on. It’s cold outside.”
You: “But, Mom, I’m not cold.”
Yo mama: “Yes you are. Put a sweater on.”
Thought bubble: “I didn’t think I was cold, but
I must be, because Mom said I was.”

or

You: “I hate my sister.”
Yo mama: “Oh, no, dear, you don’t hate your sister, you love her.”
Thought bubble: “I want her dead.” and “Now I’m confused.”

still another

You: “Mama, a fairy lives in our garden. She is beautiful
and kind, and is my friend.”
Yo mama: “Oh, sweetheart, that’s impossible. It was only
your imagination.”
Thought bubble: “My imagination is worthless and not to be
trusted.”

just one more

You: “Mama, I dreamed that Grandma was alive again.
I was so happy.”
You mama: “Oh, darling, it was only a dream. It wasn’t real”
Thought bubble: “My dreams are irrelevant.”

The upshot of these little scenarios is that we grow up to
mistrust our own perceptions. We do this because our perceptions
are invalidated by the very people we look up to most.
They do this lovingly, but out of ignorance.
We totally buy into it, because they were Gods in our world.

When we trust our perceptions, we welcome our intuitions and
hunches as the gifts they really are.
We go to a different coffee shop “just because” and meet
someone we haven’t seen in ages, someone that gladdens our
hearts, or that we need to have in our life again.
We get the urge to take a different route to work, and discover
later that there was a huge accident on our regular route
that morning. Good thing we weren’t late for that important
meeting!

So, try to let go of the old programming. Trust that your urges
won’t lead you to rack and ruin. In many cases it will keep you safe.

It might also be loads of fun.

My point is that we all have hunches and urges. Few of us act on them because we dismiss them out of hand. We don’t trust what we cannot see.

A lot of people wonder how I do my thing. The truth is, once I am in an altered state, I get all kinds of information that I trust. The difference between myself and many others is that I am confident enough of my information to promptly pass it on to the client.

So, the next time your child says something like “I hate my sister” , do them a huge favour and mirror back to them: “You are angry with your sister.”

This is the greatest gift that you can give to your child’s sense of self. That they can trust their own perceptions.
