Me, Myself, and My Messages By Mike Oppenheim

All my life I have been searching for meaning: be it in nature, consciousness, sleep, dreams, or myself. This ceaseless search has been both my burden and best friend.

Prior to stumbling into a former-stumbler who introduced me to Lynn M. Bunch and the Center for Intuitive Development, I didn’t have names or even sign posts for my private, sacred methods for decision-making, or my “science of living,” if you will.

It was therefore a remarkable moment in my life when I started taking the Intuitive Development Blueprint courses, all of which give background, names, and best of all, reliable instructions for how to best use what I now refer to as my messages.

There are messages all around us: too many, if you ask me. “Lose weight the easy way…” “Improve your sex life instantly with…” “Choosy Moms choose…” These messages distract us from our guided messages, the only messages worth following.

I have a confession. Sometimes* in my life, I have purposefully ignored my guided messages, and more often than not, it was because they contradicted the “wisdom” of my country, culture or society. *(“Sometimes?” (blush) “I mean, uh, quite often…”)

Blame it on peer pressure, a desire to fit in, or weakness: I’ll own any accusation, for I now stand on the other side of what I formerly saw as an impenetrable wall separating me from what I always sought: self-confidence. I am now living in what I always intuited as my Truth, but this was no cakewalk, thanks to socialization.

I have replaced my affiliation with “Zombie University,” with the School of Intuitively Guided Conscious Humans. Our mission is simple: We follow messages and pay attention to signs in order to live a life of purpose, with joy and self-respect.

I know that the way I feel is not a permanent state. Just like everything in our ephemeral Universe, Living with Intuition requires dedication and discipline—but I am happy to report that I have now built a good streak of following messages without obsessing over why they arose, what they will accomplish, and best of all, how others will judge me and how I will judge myself. My chains were voluntary.

My Truth is not your Truth, but any two humans living in Truth can recognize each other, even if one is a Millennial skinny jeaned hipster brewing chick espresso and the other is a renegade leather chapped Boomer on a Harley: our hearts don’t judge.

We all come from and will exit our lives with a unique experience, but we all share the gift of intuition, which comes from the same source, and it’s a lot easier to see this, learn this, experience this, and ultimately manage this, when you have a guide.

Intuitive Development is the best guide I have found in thirty years of seeking. It’s not the only path, but it’s the best one for those who want education and support.

I tried for most of my life to make my way alone, and I didn’t fail, but as I was trekking the mountain of my as-of-yet greatest challenge, I learned how superior the reliable path of intuition is, and now I’m on it, and I’m ecstatic with the results.

Find your own way here.

Living Life on Autopilot Without Intention by Roselle Weinberger

For months I have been going through my days on autopilot.  If I was completely honest, I’ve been doing that for years.  Each day just going through the motions . . . . getting dressed, brushing teeth, stretching, eating, etc.  All things were done without a second thought as to why or how any of it was really benefitting me.

 

Recently I was asked why I was doing certain things and it made me stop and think.  I was totally shocked that I didn’t have an answer other than it’s what I always do.  Rude awakening!  Life should have meaning and that can only be achieved by doing things with intention, with full awareness . . . . . being conscious.

 

From now on I will be mindful of my actions however small or insignificant they seem.  When I eat I will be aware of what I am putting in my mouth and how it will nourish my body.  When I soak in the tub or take a shower, I will do it with total realization that I am washing off all the energy from the day that isn’t benefitting me.  When I sit outside I will truly enjoy nature and let it boost my spirit.

 

Life is precious and should be lived to the fullest.  Each of us has a different interpretation of what that means.  To me it means being surrounded by people with similar beliefs that are looking to achieve a higher consciousness.  Continuing to grow, learn and expand myself in Spirit, Mind, and Body.

 


You’ve probably heard the phrase “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.”   Well, I’d like to say, NOT TRUE!!!  Being past the age of seventy, I am learning that it isn’t too late to be taught a new way.  Attending classes and taking the e-Courses at Intuitive Development I have been shown a whole new way to lead a more fulfilled, enlightened life.  They are teaching me to speak my truth, live without being stuck in worry and awaken my long suppressed intuition.  For the first time in my life I have learned not to be afraid of it. 

 

With each class and each session with the ID Team, I learn something new about myself.  Granted, it’s not always sunshine and roses but a necessary awakening of my soul.  I have been given the tools to work through my dark times and get me back to a good place in true alignment.  It’s easy to become discouraged because there is so much to learn but the Team is always there to listen, encourage and help get to the source of the uncertainty – self-judgment.  I’m working on achieving the confidence in myself that they see in me.
