What goes on in your unconscious when you’re not paying attention?
Are there clues that you can pick up that things are about to bubble up?
Today’s podcast talks about clues you’re already getting that something is ready to come into your consciousness. Bring it out – with consciousness – and then act on it!
Hi everyone – this is Lisa from Practically Intuitive.com and welcome to the podcast. I do these short little ones every other week on topics ranging from the woo-woo to the practical and all areas in between. If you’ve got an idea or a topic you’d like me to bring up in one of these, drop me a note and let me know!
Just a reminder that I’ll be shifting over to a fuller program to better help you navigate the shifts and changes in your life soon and will be stopping one-time readings. I was going to stop October 31st but since my birthday is right around the corner, I decided to start the new program when I start my new year!
So, the last day for you to purchase a one-time reading (either 30 minutes or 60) will be October 22nd. These readings are especially good for when you have an important decision to make and need some input from your guides and teachers, or if you just need some support to know you’re moving in the right direction. There is a lot that comes through in the time we talk and the great thing is that the calls are recorded and sent to you afterward so you can just be on the phone and take it all in! If you want to book a reading before October 22nd, you can click the “Work with Me” link on my site and do it all right there. You don’t have to get your reading before October 22nd but you do have to book it before then.
And now, on to today’s topic which is …. Well, I don’t know what it is, actually. All week long I’ve been waiting for something to jump up and hit me and so far, no jumps, no hits.
It made me wonder what I have to say that isn’t yet ready to be said. I’ve mentioned one or thirty times that I’ve kept journals all my life and when I go back and look at them, what usually pokes me is what I didn’t write about.
Sometimes feelings were too big for me to put into words and all I have are journal entries many months apart instead of a few days apart.
When it gets quiet inside me, I know that things are simmering but I often don’t know what things or why they’re simmering.
Have you ever had that experience of knowing that something was going on right underneath your consciousness but it eluded you?
And the more you tried to bring it out, the more it ran away. Almost like a dream – the harder you try to remember, the more it disappears?
That sign, that inability to know what’s bubbling, tells me it’s something big.
What signs do you experience when you know a shift is underway? Do you get quiet also? Or do you write more or talk more to your friends, thinking it out along with them?
We all have our patterns and part of living a life with consciousness is understanding your patterns and how to work with them.
For example, my husband sleeps a lot when something is bothering him. If I notice that he’s napping quite a bit or going to bed really early, I know that it’s more than being physically tired. Yet, when I ask him what’s up, he’ll say “nothing” because what’s up is buried deep in his unconscious. All he knows is that he wants to sleep. It’s possible he’s not ready or willing to deal with what he’s feeling. And it’s times like this that he probably isn’t thrilled living with an intuitive because I always ask if something is bothering him that he’s not talking about.
These patterns can tell you a lot about yourself or someone else if you pay attention to them on a consistent basis.
And maybe that’s what this podcast is about – paying attention to what goes on when you’re not paying attention.
That’s where the answers lie.
Caroline Myss has often posed the question “Where does your mind go when you’re not paying attention?” She suggested we start tracking that because it shows what you are giving energy to.
Same principle here – what are you giving energy to that is right below your consciousness?
How do you begin to let it bubble up?
To start with you have to be aware that a pattern exists before you try to figure out what it means. And that takes some self-reflection. If you’re not naturally that way, it helps to write down some notes about what you’re feeling or doing so you can see a picture emerge. If you have a friend or a partner who knows you well, perhaps you can ask them some of the things they notice that you do – like me noting the husband’s nap time.
Once you have an idea of what your particular pattern means, ask your higher self or your team of guides to bring the meaning of that pattern into your consciousness for processing. It’s there to show you something and once you know that, figuring out what that something is gets a lot easier.
Don’t force it into a box of what you think it’s supposed to mean – let it come to you however it does.
Mine was an offhand comment someone made many years ago saying “When you’re not talking, something is out of whack!” One of my early nicknames was Motor Mouth (and that surprises no one who knows me well) but this comment was said at the right time for it to pop into my consciousness that yeah, something IS going on and it’s showing up as me not wanting to engage with anyone.
Next, set the intention to notice when it happens and what’s going on around you. That will give you a clue what kinds of things trigger that pattern and since you have the meaning already associated with it, you can get an instant diagnosis right from your own soul about what is going on deep inside you.
Just like learning to work with your intuition, this takes practice and trust. It takes you observing a repetitive action and then opening up to the underlying meaning of that action. Once you are able to get this down, you have honed your inner GPS to an even higher degree than before. Look for it to give you feedback and then use that feedback to understand what’s happening in your life and what things you want to shift, change or remove altogether.
Doing this won’t solve all your problems but it will help you become more aware of your inner workings and when that comes into consciousness, that’s when change can happen. For me, that quiet signal means I’m working on something big so I know to allow myself time to flesh it out, time to get quiet and space to prepare for what’s coming. It usually means a big breakthrough is right around the corner.
This week, allow yourself to notice the little signals your unconscious sends you. You don’t have to interpret them or know what to do with them. Just notice them. The rest comes naturally.
Thanks for listening. I hope you have a wonderful week. This is Lisa from PracticallyIntuitive.com. Bye for now.
