Got the Blahs? 5 ways to move them along

by Cheryl Brewster

Let’s be honest with ourselves. Sometimes we go through cycles and no matter how much we try to stay positive, look on the bright side and trust the process, we just don’t FEEL it. And when we don’t FEEL it, motivation to do normal everyday things, let alone propel our visions forward can feel totally out of reach.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

We can shift from “the blahs” very easily by following this simple process:

1. Bless the Blahs
Blessing actually dissipates the blahs while resistance makes them stronger. How do you bless what you don’t like? There are always options. Lots of them… the blahs are letting you know that the choices you’re making right now aren’t giving you the energy you need to be present and enjoying life. They’re letting you know that you are shutting down somewhere. Like a good friend letting you know you’ve got something stuck in your teeth, the blahs are momentarily painful but wouldn’t you rather KNOW?! So blessing the blahs is proactive; it releases that stored up emotional energy in order to….

2. Apply the ABC’s of Prosperous Intuition, Aware/Breathe/Connect
Awareness is everything! Now that you are consciously acknowledging that you have the blahs… rather than ask “why” you have them, a better question is “what am I going to do about them?” Consciously invite three deep breaths and I guarantee that something extraordinary will happen. Possibilities begin to flash through your mind; images, thoughts, inspirations and as you CONNECT with them, your ability to think outside the “box of blahs,” is enhanced… suddenly you realize you have the power to choose something more invigorating and freeing. You realize that “inspired action is a choice,” and you can choose it instantly, which helps you to….

3. De-throne the Critical Voice
Who put it in charge anyway? Notice that when you have the blahs there’s something else in charge… and it ISN’T pretty! It goes for the jugular every single time. When you don’t feel good about yourself, you shut down; you become powerless and helpless to change things. Not anymore! The blahs are an invitation to recognize where you are allowing yourself to be bullied by a harmful voice that is not yours. Be clear: if the voice behind the blahs is not helping focus on solution, drop it. See it for what it is and refuse to listen to it a second longer. This is NOT the voice of intuition. When you Take Your Stand for the affirming voice of intuition rather than the constant berating of the critical voice, positive change does occur!  You are claiming your role as a Conscious Changemaker!

4. Stop the Blame Game now and forever
The critical voice is insidious. It’s focus is purely negative, condemning and life-zapping. In her book Feel the Fear and do it anyway, Susan Jeffers said it best: “Taking responsibility means not blaming yourself. Anything that takes away your power or your pleasure makes you a victim. Don’t make yourself a victim of yourself.” Blame is never the answer. Is there blame in your blah? If so, would you choose to stay in a vat of corrosive chemicals? That’s what you’re doing by staying in blame; this is toxic and needs to stop… NOW. This becomes a way of life; not only a now and then thing.

5. FEEL those positive vibes!
Intuition has only one objective: your highest good. It is always solutions-based. The ABC’s of Prosperous Intuition help you become Aware that the solution is already here; Breathe into it and Connect to that FEELING state of solution… When you attune yourself to the vibration of solution, you purposely put intuition/solutions back into the driver’s seat of your life. You are deliberately trusting the inner wisdom that sees behind the scenes. Suddenly the route and the destination are no longer scary, heavy, overwhelming or out of reach. You do not need to wait for things to change because YOU have; blessing the blahs and releasing the blame game, the critical voice and the past help clear the obstructions to solution that were here all along. You begin to see that every problem is a solution just waiting to be uncovered; you feel lighter, freer and open to the possibilities that exist. You see routes you did not see before, have thoughts you did not think before, and are inspired rather than deflated. Intuition is the key to prosperity on all levels… why? Because it always points you to the solution that is here NOW. So bless those blahs; and you intuitively ignite the flame of prosperity already inside of you…feel the relief and joy of solution here now and let it carry you through inspired action.

Let’s be honest with ourselves. Staying inspired with a clear mind takes effort. Very few people are actually naturally positive most of the time; it does take work! To help achieve a consistent intuitive/positive mindset, consider an intuitive reading or mentor program to get you started on your way to dropping those old patterns and embracing the new ones that your intuition has been whispering to you about! Steve Jobs, founder of Apple Computers said it best, “Intuition is a discipline.”  I couldn’t agree more – I can help! I know what it’s like to struggle with staying positive amid the emotional challenges of stretching those good old comfort zones. That’s why I love what I do; I know solutions exist…. we just need to stay open to them.

Intuitive Prosperity in Business

by Cheryl Brewster


why (2Intuitive Prosperity in business is listening to your “WHY?”

I was inspired by a TED talk that shared a model for how great leaders inspire action. Basically, what it came down to was being clear about the “why” of what they do (versus the what). The talk was about branding, and because it shifted the focus from the external to the internal, I knew that intuition plays an important role.

The concept is that understanding WHY you do what you do (create a product, provide a service), and therefore being able to communicate that, will attract buyers who believe in the same WHY. A deeper connection than the product itself is created. Prosperity is a direct result of that deep inner knowing and your ability to connect with it in others.

In the talk, Dr. Martin Luther King was given as an example. King said, “I have a dream”, not “I have a plan.” So, it’s about inspiring people by making sure they know your WHY.

TOMS shoes is another example that comes to mind. This company originated from a trip to Argentina when the social entrepreneur (and Conscious Changemaker), Blake Mycoskie, saw poor children running around the streets without shoes and intuitively knew that he had to do something to help. TOMS was created to fulfill that desire. TOMS donates one new pair of shoes to children in need for every pair sold.

The business started with the WHY, has a great story, and people who buy TOMS shoes are not only purchasing its product, but also its WHY. They are more than customers. They are supporters. As a result, this business has seen notable success and shared prosperity.

The question is, how do you really get clear about your WHY? The answer to this question can be the missing link to your ability to “allow” intuitive prosperity in business.

Napoleon Hill, of Think and Grow Rich fame, writes about desire (wanting something so much it becomes an inspired, healthy obsession) and the sixth sense (subconscious Creative Imagination). Can you imagine how powerful the results would be if you could use your sixth sense to clarify the WHY, then tap into the fuel of your desire to implement steps to experience prosperity?

Answering the WHY, clarifying your purpose, and using the power of your intuition are powerfully interconnected. While it’s about reaching within to find authentic answers, sometimes it takes some help from outside sources to get there.

That’s where a professional intuitive can add value. As a Personal and Professional Intuitive, and founder of The Intuitive Life (2004), I invite you to watch the TED talk, read the TOMS story, and start thinking about your own WHY. I inspire Conscious Changemakers to increase intuitive prosperity in business by going deeper into their “WHY” through personal and business consultations, personalized Intuitive Mentor Programs and the Intuitive Prospecting Program.
