Inklings ~ A Little Inspiration
Hello, Hello and Welcome to Inklings with Irena, The Weekly Energy Show connecting you to your Intuitive Guidance System. I’m so glad you’re here today because I want to talk about a little inspiration. There are just those days where we can lose ourself. There’s a lot going on.
So before I go too far down that rabbit hole, let me introduce myself. My name is Irena, and I’m an Intuitive Energy Guide and what I call an Energy Alchemist and Spiritual Life Coach. My joy is guiding big hearted, empathic people on their journeys.
There’s so often those moments where we beat ourselves up in life because we feel like it’s us. You know, we hide away, we hole up because life just gets to be too much. It gets to be overwhelming. And as an empath, it’s so easy to absorb a lot of the noise around us. It makes us feel slow and sluggish. We might find ourselves acting in mannerisms and ways that are unexpected. It’s not like us. So let’s dive in and talk about this. I want to start with just the fact that whenever you have a moment where you’ve lost yourself, think of yourself a bit like a computer. Sometimes it just runs slow, especially if you don’t turn it all the way off at night and it just needs a system reboot. You’ve had so many different programs running, lots of different things going on, trying to connect to the Internet, trying to do 10 things at once. So what I invite you to do is to take a deep breath. That’s the first piece of this. I call it my Triple B Energy Recipe for inspiration for remembering who you are. The first piece is to simply BREATHE, to come back to yourself. Now, the reason for the breath and why this is so helpful is that many times when we’re in the midst of work, when we’re out rushing around errand, doing errands from place to place, we’re holding our breath or not breathing very deeply. So by simply breathing deeply into the lungs so that the belly can expand, you will discover that you become present, you become grounded.
The light goes on in your eyes. You’re back home. So the first part of this triple B recipe is (I love how all that rhymes) to breathe. This is what’s going to bring you back to yourself. The second B is BELIEVE. Now, this part really when I was tuning in today to bring this to you, this part really resonated with me because it’s so easy to second guess our intuition or our gut instincts. We’ll think, oh, people will think I’m crazy if I tell them I don’t want to go into that place because it smells funny, or if I tell them I don’t like that restaurant because I just get this odd feeling like I get goose bumps on my arms, it just. Oh, it’s unsettling. Oh, you know, what’s the matter with you? Or maybe you’ve heard. Oh, stop taking it so personally. Well, I want to invite you to take a moment to believe in yourself, believe in the messages, the little gut instincts, the nudges, the inklings that are coming your way, even if it’s just briefly where you’re like, you know what, I get a feeling I should call an old friend, believe that feeling and give them a call, see what’s going on. Maybe it’s a belief of, you know what, I should turn left to go to the grocery store today instead of right. Why? I don’t know. Let’s figure it out. And then you discover that there was terrible road construction. If you turned right, you would have gotten stuck for a long time.
Oh, I’ve been there.
So that second B is believe and the final B is BECOME so often, you know, they talk about (I say they, right the infamous quote unquote, everybody they that’s out there in the universe), they say, keep your eyes, you know, on your own lane, stay in your lane. Don’t worry about what other people are doing. Inevitably, though, it does come into our lane. I want to say, even if we’re trying to say in our lane, somehow we see these things we pick up on them. We may not even be consciously picking up on things. I had a funny experience last night. I’ll have to save that story for another day. But we can be just affected by the conscious collective. Last night I had this overwhelming feeling to eat the delicious panettone that my aunt sent me for Christmas. I’ve been saving it and oh, it’s so good. And I that I just want to connect with my Italian heritage. I just feel such a call and I don’t often feel that. I normally feel more of a call to connect with my Irish heritage. And I mean, either way, I love my Italian heritage. Don’t get me wrong, just it’s one of those things just happens. But last night I just felt a call. I wanted to connect with my Italian heritage. Had that panettone and it was so delicious and I woke up and I saw what was trending was Italy did it. Like what?
So anyway, that’s another side story for another time and point and place. But the thing is, is that Italy is a lot of people’s collective consciousness. And I was thinking about Italy last night and I had panettone when normally I wouldn’t eat it.
I ate like half of the beautiful loaf.
It was so good. So when you become here is the thing.
If you’re breathing and you’re believing in your gut instincts and your little inklings and what you become is going to be who you truly are, you’re not going to be necessarily influenced by collective conscious or other people’s opinions or ideas, whether you’re aware of it or not, as easily. So going forward, I invite you when there’s a lot of distraction, when there’s noise, when you’re looking for that inspiration, that great pick me up. I invite you to first breathe, breathe deep belly breaths, then believe, believe this little nudges and inklings coming your way, like turn left. And then as you step into becoming, you’re going to know that the actions you take from that point forward, it’s really from who you are, from your heart. So thank you so much for tuning in today. I want to wrap with one of my most favorite inspirational quotes. As you take ownership and become who you are, as you step into this story that you were born to live, especially if it’s been a distracting, noisy day for you. But this quote is from Martha Graham. It’s one of my all time favorites. Maybe you’ve heard it along the way.
But she says, “there is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action. And because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it. It will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost.” So today is a day to put into play that triple B recipe. Breathe,
Believe, believe in those nudges and Inklings that you’re getting and become by stepping into action, taking action on those Inklings so that you, too can be a channel for an incredible story and message. All right. Thanks so much for coming. Drop me a little. Hello. If you’re watching and let me know where you’re watching from. I always love to connect with all of you around the world. Lots of love.
