Guide to Help Empower Yourself

Emotional Freedom is a book written with humor and understanding, designed to engage and educate readers in the intricate relationship between body, mind, and spiritual health. Emotional freedom happens when stress has been mastered, there is control over emotions, and life is approached positively rather than with negativity. Dr. Orloff uses her wisdom to teach readers how to deal constructively with life and take control again.

Drawing from several fields, including neuroscience, intuitive medicine, psychology, and energy medicine, Dr. Orloff incorporates several case studies into her discussions, and offers endless strategies on ways to pinpoint negative emotions and flip them into feelings of empowerment.

The book also includes:

  • methods on identifying one’s emotional type (intellectual, empathic, rock, or gusher);
  • discussions on the importance of tapping into the power of dreams;
  • an exploration on the power of one’s intuition;
  • a “survival guide” on dealing constructively with those who are emotionally draining; and
  • strategies on how to face specific negative emotions (such as fear, frustration, disappointment, loneliness, anxiety, depression, envy, or anger) and replacing them with more positive emotional transformations.

Healing From the Influence of Negative People

Question for Alana: Hi Alana, I’ve always been aware of spirit in my life and at one point was very well attuned to my guides and was able to communicate freely.

Unfortunately I came across a very negative person who thought that what I was doing was “wrong” and disapproved of this path.

This person was in a position of great authority over me and sadly was a big influence on me, and I agreed to stop. I rejected the gifts that I had, refused to communicate with my guides and cut off from this side of who I was.

Finally, I broke free from this person and began a long process of healing that had taken many years. I feel drawn to returning to what I had before but don’t seem to be able to do this anymore.

I am so sorry and ashamed of rejecting the gifts, and of rejecting my wonderful guide, and I don’t know how to tune myself in any more, and don’t know how to trust myself.

Do you have any advice or guidance? I found your website very helpful.

Lessons in life often come to us through the experiences of contrast.

There are many gems within your message that will unfold. They will offer you a deepening of your internal connection to your expanded nature and your spiritual self. Let’s take a walk together so you may discover how your experiences can serve you and assist in healing your heavy heart.

When Those of Power Disapprove

Every day we experience hierarchy in some fashion. Whether it is a boss at one’s place of employment, or a teacher at school, a religious figurehead, or even a family member. In some cultures there are cast systems, and in others we are taught that if we put our needs first we are selfish.  So how is it we give other’s power over us? Most would say it is woven into the fabric of our cultures; or authority has to be present to keep some type of order.

That is all fine and good, but the key to recognize is that when we view each other as separate we then really lose our sense of self. (seems contradictory, doesn’t it?) When we can heal this sense of separation we can respect others and in turn remain clear of our own true power center, which is our connection with heart, grace, and the infinite wisdom that lies within the core we all share. We we understand this,  separation of self dissolves and a sense of powerlessness goes with it.

The process of recognizing who we truly are is often a remembrance that resurfaces after we forget. If we hold ourselves with the same type of judgement that we felt we received from those we once thought had greater powers than we did then we are just mirroring back to us the same dynamic and story. So it is so very important to release shame and guilt and grasp that a disconnection from our power may just be the necessary fuel for our eternal being to powerfully recognize our authentic and vital nature.

How Do I Learn To Trust

yellow flowerLearning to trust is a natural instinct when we learn how to sharpen our senses. I am not just talking about our five senses, but our extended senses as well that reach into the non visible aspects of our being. Trust comes from the reconnection to our power center which can easily be remembered through conscious practice.

Recognize doubt can be a tool to help us learn how to trust, for doubt brings with it questions so we may learn to listen.

Most people have at least one sense that is more predominate. So this is the place to begin listening. For example, the gut level feeling we get when we know we should turn right or left when we come to a stop sign and are lost. Or the feeling we get when we know someone wants to hear from us. Learning to trust again starts with listening to whatever sense one feels is the most predominate and honoring the message we receive. Building trust comes through exercising our intuition. Then what follows is personal transformation as we become clearer channels for our values, needs, and authentic natures that wish to guide us.

If Something Is Done Once By Only One Person It Can Be Done Again

When we feel like we have lost a thing, a presence, or a connection it still exists within the field of implicate order. Intention is a powerful resource that shapes matter and presents itself as patterns of thought, expression, and even material manifestations. The first step to take to rekindle your connection with your guides is to ask for it to be so. Then expect to receive and look for subtle signs. Then build on those subtle signs and ask that the connection become more clear and essential. Here is a beautiful mantra!

Divine Love, Light, and Energy, flow through me and bring forth that which is essential for the highest good of all.

A beautiful mantra such as this embraces connection while also staying focused and free from distraction. This mantra embraces the wisdom of all and what is truly divine. Expecting to receive is a wonderful message to give the universe for it reinforces the natural flow of giving and receiving. It offers a consciousness path to find what may have not been obvious to one’s previous perceptions.

Woven in words such as this are also sparks of remembrance. When we point our attention to the home within our hearts we can recognize we have always been full even when our minds have been distracted. So now you can see that the experience you had really can serve as a gift. If your intuitive connection was strong, the veil can be lifted again. Just practice, be patient, and set aside any self judgment because the big picture is always there and always will be.

Alana with the help of Kirk and Sandy has created a beautiful intuition course that will help you reawaken your connection.
