How to shift your need to stay protected to an ability to be perceptive

You know you have a burden on your shoulders.
You know you might have smidgeon of an issue with control.
You know you want to “let go” but just can’t seem to do it.
You know there is more to you, and more to life, but no matter what you do, you don’t feel like you are accomplishing your fullest potential.
I bet you’ve tried meditation, but it only gets you so far, before you feel the incessant need to do something, to get ahead, and not miss out. This is just old programming, old armour we constructed when we needed to be emotionally protected.
I get you. I’ve been there too. Eventually the weight of holding it all together became too heavy. I knew I couldn’t “get there” from this place of striving, and fixing, and trying all the time. No matter what I did, I never felt like I did enough. I eventually got suspicious that my methods were not working.
When I was 29, and tried everything I thought I needed to do to make myself achieve my potential. But, I was slowed down energetically by dragging my past with me. Some people call it sabotage, but now I knew better. All the convoluted defences and protections I developed to avoid being hurt took on a life of their own and hijacked me whenever I got vulnerable or too close to something that really mattered to me.
Too risky!
My armour protected me whether I wanted it to or not.
Things happen in life, to all of us, that we grow and adapt from. These experiences in our past can still hang on in our cell tissue taking up space and mucking up our presence. It’s all the old stuff that needs to let go like dead leaves falling in autumn. But how? I 
I mean, what’s the point of having it all or succeeding if you aren’t really there, and aren’t really YOU…right?
You did your best, were you were, with what you had. 
And now, it’s time to let go of the heavy armour. 
The armour includes the tactics, defences, masks, identities and tendencies that made sense at one moment in time, but need to be let go or recalibrated to enjoy the moment now, and create from possibilities rather than reactions from the past.  
Sure, the armour is there to prevent pain, but it’s also preventing presence and possibility. 
The war is over.
Are you ready to take off the armour?
Changing your Armour into Intuition
1. Re-Purpose Your Armour
Now we know the psychic armour we construct is there because we needed it in the past. 
But, trying to prove we are enough, or avoid feeling pain, will never lead to success that is satisfying. We need to let the old armoured patterns go so we can be free.
The good news is, we can re-purpose it!
Think about it. 
Perfectionism can be debilitating and lead to perpetual procrastination when coming from our armour, but coming from our essence it is a great tool for quality work and genuine high-performance in life. 
Skepticism can create paranoia, but when authentic and balanced can be a great tool for discernment.  
All of our defences and armour can be used for good, if we trust that we can let go of the old way in exchange for an updated version that serves us, not tries to save us.
2. Feel your Feelings
Learning that feelings can be guides was a crazy a-ha moment for me. I remember literally stopping in my tracks while listening to a CD about our emotions as guidance, and feeling at the time that emotions were hell. Seriously, I didn’t believe it. I only knew the reactive, insecure emotions at the time, not the natural guidance they could be.
It took several years after hearing that CD before I could piece together enough tools and healing to experience it.
Letting old feelings MOVE that are frozen in time in our body allows energy to be reclaimed. That’s why holding back emotions and shoving down things from the past is so exhausting.
There is a space- underneath old, un-felt feelings- where your intuition thrives. It is always there. You simply haven’t known that underneath all the fear of being hurt again, or humiliated, you are unconditionally fine, and infinitely resourced. 
Don’t believe me?
Well, your heart is beating, and your brain can read and comprehend these words. Right?
There is this subtle intelligence always working with us for us, if we really pay attention.
This same intelligence applies to our emotions.

3. Reclaim your Energy for Your Life
Have you ever tried to hold down a beachball under water?
It’s a lot of energy! The ball keeps moving and we have to constantly be on it.
Well, that’s just like all the energy we use to hold down past emotions that we haven’t been able to let go of.
How much energy could you reclaim if you could stop holding down emotional beach balls.
How clear would the water be if you weren’t fighting the beachball? You could float. You could play. You could be.
When we use all our energy to hold back the past, we can’t really be here.
It is exhausting, and you don’t have to do it anymore. 
4. Enjoy the Clarity of Intuition
Letting your armour turn into an ally, or fall off completely, allows your inner receivers in your heart centre to work properly again.
It never made sense to me that we had to scramble around trying to get “it” right, and never get “it” wrong. Again, we simply wanted to avoid pain. It’s natural. But it’s also tiring if we think we have to control it all and hold it all together on our own.
Intuition allows us to connect to an intelligence beyond our comprehension. We were always meant to have this access, but society got a bit confused along the way teaching us to shove down feelings and not be “emotional.” Don’t worry we can fix that now and you can re-connect to your inner knowing.
I couldn’t hear my intuition because the noise in my head was simply too noisy. I didn’t know my thoughts could calm down once I felt safe in my body, and present in my heart. I didn’t know that my feelings could move through my body and become wisdom. I didn’t know, until I learned how to access my centre, trust my body, and accept my feelings. I let the armour fall off when I tuned in to my connection to trust within my own bones and my being.
You can do it too. 
It is your nature.
Your armour can turn into inner knowing, presence, and possibility. 
‘I think midlife is when the Universe gently places her hands upon your shoulders, pulls you close, and whispers in your ear:
I’m not screwing around. It’s time. All of this pretending and performing – these coping mechanisms that you’ve developed to protect yourself from feeling inadequate and getting hurt – has to go.
Your armour is preventing you from growing into your gifts. I understand that you needed these protections when you were small. I understand that you believed your armour could help you secure all of the things you needed to feel worthy of love and belonging, but you’re still searching and you’re more lost than ever.
Time is growing short. There are unexplored adventures ahead of you. You can’t live the rest of your life worried about what other people think. You were born worthy of love and belonging. Courage and daring are coursing through you. You were made to live and love with your whole heart. It’s time to show up and be seen.  ~Brené Brown

Your Freedom Can be Won Back at the End of a Hypodermic Needle

Your Freedom Can be Won Back at the End of a Hypodermic Needle

This sounds like a science fiction movie, but it is happening in real life before our very eyes. The line of truth appears to be the vaccine, who will succumb and take it, and who will not. The first wave of either intentional or accidental bioterrorism was with the COVID-19 respiratory illness. The second wave is more insidious and broadly applied to a population prepared by months of fear and isolation…

Mothers Against Experimental Vaccines

Mothers Against Experimental Vaccines

The Covid-19 vaccine has been the cause of more deaths than all vaccines in the 15 year period between 1997-2013 combined. In a four-month period, the experimental jab reported 3,362 deaths (averaging 30 deaths a day), and that’s only a fraction of what’s being reported. In just three days in 2021, more deaths were caused by…

Trading US Energy Independence for China Rare Earth Dependence Benefits Only Beijing

Biden and his handlers have re-upped the U.S. in the Paris Climate Accord and called for slashing our greenhouse emissions by 50% or more by 2030 over the 2005 level, China, the largest CO2-emitter, gets a free pass to continue ramping up its coal development until 2030. We can also but imagine that Biden Family Inc. isn’t anxious to risk ugly Beijing extortion blowback regarding legendary foreign influence-peddling demons known to be residing in Hunter’s laptop from Hell…

Following the ‘Real Science’ of Medicine: McCullough and Risch

Fauci has ties to the gain-of-function research that developed the dangerous Wuhan spike protein, which is the primary protein produced in the bodies of those who are seduced into vaccination with Pfizer, Moderna, and JNJ products. These vaccines have led to record-setting ~300,000 CDC-certified safety reports, including >5000 tragic and unnecessary American deaths…

The Mutiny of Medicine Is Almost Complete

The Mutiny of Medicine Is Almost Complete

Both the Lancet and New England Journal of Medicine faced severe criticism for publishing “controversial COVID-19 papers,” the controversy involving misinformation, fraud, and lack of scientific integrity. So harsh was the backlash that both journals retracted the articles. The Lancet also retracted a false study stating the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine was dangerous and of no benefit in treating COVID-19. Wrong!

Al Sisi’s Resurgent Egypt

Al Sisi’s Resurgent Egypt

It was al Sisi who mediated directly between Israel and Hamas because Egypt is the only Arab country adjoining and controlling the flow of life to Gaza, not Biden from 5900 miles away. To help the people of Gaza, al Sisi opened the crossings to allow urgent food and medical supplies to go through and allow the injured to be taken care of in Egyptian hospitals…

Who Pays for AOC’s ‘Abuela-Care?’

Who Pays for AOC’s ‘Abuela-Care?’

AOC blames others for her grandmother’s roof but does nothing herself. Matt Walsh does something himself. AOC wants taxpayer coercively funded government action. Matt Walsh took direct action with his own money. Which one is more compassionate? Which one cares more about family?

The War of the Red Dragon

The War of the Red Dragon

China believes in three forms of warfare: informational, economic, and kinetic (aka ‘guns blazing’). China determined that the United States would win a kinetic war, so while they saw war with the United States as necessary, they decided to use information warfare, and economic warfare, avoiding a kinetic war until China was in a position to win…

China’s Future in the Balance

China’s Future in the Balance

When we look at China today, the brutal purge and genocide of the Uyghurs, the persecution of the Falun Gong, the brutal suppression of the Chinese people throughout the COVID-19 crisis which the Chinese government itself caused, we should now understand that if Xi is willing to do this to his own people, what will he not be willing to do to us?

China Meddling in Our Local Elections

China Meddling in Our Local Elections

They use bribery, promises of lucrative industrial cooperation, jobs for everybody, etc., to get political leaders to taste the honey. Democrats are China’s lackeys, their fellow travelers, so to speak, and always, will be the first level that disappears into the gulags, prisons, or work camps. Democrats don’t see it coming because they don’t see what they’re losing. We see it; we just ignore it hoping…

Gates, Fauci, Covid Policing, and the New Normal

Gates, Fauci, Covid Policing, and the New Normal

Could Dr. Fauci’s “stakeholdings” with the Gates Foundation’s Leadership Council have clouded his thinking about hydroxychloroquine while declaring vaccines as the only cure and his support for “immunity cards” that could alert authorities to which Americans had not gotten their CCP virus vaccinations? Will he personally benefit from the Gates’ vaccines?

Global Warming is the Mother of all Moral Panics!

Global Warming is the Mother of all Moral Panics!

Greta Thunberg, AOC, and countless others tell us it’s time to panic about climate change! We actually think the opposite. It’s time to calm down. What we’re concerned about is the distinct possibility that catastrophic man-caused climate change is now what sociologists call a “moral panic.” The news media hypes the panic because exploiting fear and creating conflict is the foundation of their business model…

Political Kooks and Other Silly Nonsense

Political Kooks and Other Silly Nonsense

The greatest kookiness of all is the Critical Racist Theory, a concoction of feel-good nonsense designed as a black new deal to eliminate any silly contradictions from elements of the White race about who is really important in America. That can only be achieved by re-writing and teaching a new American history to fit the fantasies of foolish people. They call it “Woke,” but people with common sense call it BS, and a re-woke is coming…
