Powerful techniques to optimize your emotions, beliefs, and behaviors

Opening Intuition

In Opening Intuition, we open ourselves to our unconscious. In this process, we let ourselves go to our deeper creativity.

We may request something like an intuitive knowing or healing. We relax and open ourselves to the unconscious or creative spirit.

In Opening Intuition, we breathe deeply. We may go to our heartbeat region and tune in there, getting an overall felt sense. We just go to that place and open ourselves to it. 

 

Our attention may soon turn into a dream. We might experience an intuition arriving in a sensual form: auditory, visual, and bodily felt. Even the form of the process structure may change on its own accord. Let the moment do the leading. We let ourselves step out of the way. Drop all control. The creative nature intercedes.

Depending on our sense of the moment, we may spontaneously drop attention on the heartbeat region and shift to a feeling that appears in your body. Sometimes attention may shift to various senses on its own accord. Whatever comes up is wherever the attention goes. The back ground intention is something like: "I let myself go to wherever my creative nature takes me."


Warning: Folks with a history of mental illness, PTSD, or panic are urged not to use these techniques without a therapist. If you decide to do these processes you will agree to absolve the webmaster, the webhost, Emoclear.com, and Steve Mensing of any responsibility for the application or misapplication of these processes. There is always in any process the possibility that someone could experience some discomfort.



Steps to Opening Intiution:

(1) Find a comfortable chair in a quiet room.

(2) You might prop your head and shoulders up on sofa pillows. Your body relaxes from your scalp to your toes as you let your tongue relax and flatten. Breathe deeply and fully through the left nostril for 12 deep and full inhalations and exhalations while your right nostril is gently pinched shut. Remove your hand as soon as the 12 inhalations and exhalations are completed. Place your my palm on your heartbeat region and allow it to remain there during the entire process, which lasts from 25 to 30 minutes. Your eyes are closed. The breathing may be at any speed. The breathing speed sets itself according to the leading of your essential nature. After a time, the breathing does the breathing.

(3) Aside from this third step, the rest of Opening Intuition may move in several directions set by your inner promptings. You may look up briefly and comfortably through the area around your hairline. If this is what you’re led to do, only do it until it begins to feel strained or uncomfortable. Looking up this way generally stimulates slower brain waves and a deeper connection with your unconscious processes. Fully attend to your heartbeat region and get an overall felt sense of it. Label it "That Opening".  This leaves your attention relaxed and open for whatever felt knowing arrives, and even spontaneous imagery or dreams. Allow your unconscious to direct attention to wherever it desires. It knows. You may even ask a question: "Please let me know about ______________ in your own way and time. Thank you." No matter what path your unconscious selects, just leave yourself open. You may soon get hypnogogic images and fleeting imagery. Dreams. voices. Bodily knowings.  Abandon yourself to this and give full, open, and relaxed attention. The creative process reveals much during these times. You may lose all track of time, but many times something valuable arrives often in a surprising and novel way. Intuitions may suddenly occur to you that may alter how you see things in some project you’re working upon. You may learn something about yourself. Sometimes a cold or ache you have at the time may fade out.

In Opening Intuition, there is an overall sense of permission, allowing, or abandoning ourselves to whatever comes. There is never any attempt to force issues or of pushing. The unconscious knows exactly what to do. Soon this opening will feel like second nature. Everyone is slightly different in how these openings come to them. Some may be visual, deeply felt, or even heard. A mix may exist.  It is as individual as the person. The unconscious takes you to whatever is important, and you keep yourself open to this.

You might set a time and follow through early in the morning before work.

Take care, Steve
