InTo IT verb: intuit

In To IT.

“Step into your life, Carola.” That’s what my last therapist said. And then she literally kicked me in the butt.

Wonder Woman InTuIT article by Carola Marashi M.A. Intuitive Counselor Really? Did she kick me with her foot? Well. It sincerely felt like she did. I felt the ‘not so subtle’ kick in the butt. I’ve spent thousands of hours as a client lamenting over what ‘didn’t happen. What didn’t happen in childhood-a lack of nurturing, advocacy, stability. What didn’t happen in marriages-dreams that didn’t come true, promises not kept. What didn’t happen in business endeavors. Like books I’ve written that didn’t make me money, and marketing plans that didn’t bring financial success. Sure. I have the hardest time letting go of what didn’t happen.

What? How can I let go of what didn’t exist?

Sincerely, think about it. Notice the shortest relationships seem to take the longest to ‘get over’.

How can I get ‘over’ what didn’t happen?

How do I jump over a hurdle that doesn’t exist?

How do I maneuver around something that’s NOT there?

Hmmm…When I step INTO it, I can accept it.

What is IT?

It is My Life!  My Whole Life:  Mind, Body and Soul. My personal, professional, physical, spiritual, recreational life. When I’m actually engaged in my life I can trust my intuition.

You know…In retrospect you hear yourself saying practically outloud!-

“Gawd! If only I listened to my inner voice…or If only I went with my first hunch-guess-INTUITION!”

Like right now as I’m writing, I’m getting goose bumps on my arms. I can feel a prickly feeling on my scalp. Yeah. I’m feeling an AHAH! come into my lungs and I’m breathing a little deeper. INTUIT-Into my life! I am in MY picture. BLEEP BLEEP sounds are going off in my head. There is a NEON sign rolling across my mind’s eye—

InTo IT

I remember a classmate sitting next to me, probably in 5th or 6th grade scribbling a circle on my paper with the words “Tu IT” written inside the circle.

InTu IT article by Carola Marashi M.A. Intuitive Counselor

Now my mantra is a BIG Circle with my name, Carola, inside the circle. YaY! I’m inside my life!

It’s when I turned 50 years old (12 years of therapy) and my therapist kicked me in the butt (so to speak),  that I started to understand what being an adult is. I was teaching obese children and their families healthy eating. We would play games to keep them engaged. We included the whole family! When the game was clearly defined the children and parents had lots of fun and learned. When the game directions were vague, complicated, and unclear frustration took over and it wasn’t fun learning.

Teaching families taught me-

when my Inner Adult is present-my Inner KID can play.

When my Inner Adult is present-my Inner KID can feel safe and let go.

Ahah! Here we go again-LET GO—one of my favorite sensations.

Sacred Playground Carola Marashi M.A. Intuitive Counselor

I can let go if my Inner Adult is in my life.

I can let go and receive pleasure when my Inner Adult

is holding my container that is my life.

My life is My Sacred Playground.

You’ve heard it a GAH-Zillion times…

“Follow your intuition.”

Who’s leading?

Who’s in the center of your life?

Right now, I suggest you get a blank piece of paper and make a huge circle in the middle and write Tu IT and your Name.

Welcome to your Sacred Playground.

Exercises for Strengthening Your Intuition.

Carola Marashi M.A. Intuitive Counselor
Carola Marashi M.A. Author, Writing Coach

Can you feel your skin twitch, itch, crawl when you’re receiving a hunch? Can you feel the back of your neck tingle? Ears burning? Heart Pounding? Butterflies fluttering in your stomach?

All these sensations are your fast twitch muscles communicating. Probably your felt sense-6th sense is your fast twitch muscles speaking. In my research, I’m discovering that our smooth muscles-which include skin, heart, and diaphragm are largely made up of fast twitch muscle cells. You’ve heard of white and dark chicken meat. Well…we have light and dark muscles too. On chickens-Breast meat is light meat. Low in fat, these muscles run on glucose for quick response and the muscles are mostly made up of fast twitch muscle fibers.

Flap flap-thus the Chicken Dance.

The thigh and leg meat on chickens is dark, marbled with fat designed for endurance, thus slow twitch muscle fiber.

Hold your horses!

Strengthen your Intuition by Carola Marashi M.A.
Lose Your Mind and Come to Your Senses

What do fast twitch muscles have to do with intuition? Our intuition is our quick response- our ‘higher mind’ reading the scene inside and outside of us. Yet our ‘mind’ lives inside each cell. That’s right, our mind is beyond our brain. You’ve heard “Are you outa your mind?” or “Lose your mind and come to your senses.”

How exciting to imagine that your Inner Guide rests quietly under your skin. Ahhh the quiet mind is the creative mind. We’re not that far from the animal kingdom. Notice how your hair on your back still rises-like cats when you feel threatened? And how your pupils dilate when excited. And when you’re really sensitive, you can actually feel your tail (yes-you really did have a tail) wag with joy! Hah!

3 strengthening exercises to build your intuition.

Strengthen your Intuition by Carola Marashi M.A.
Conjure Your Inner Guide with Water

1Drink Lots of Water. All day. Our bodies are 75% water. Our skin is nearly 50% water. Remember your skin is your largest organ on your body and is your primary messenger for intuitive hunches. “Go with the flow” and “Be here now” are universal & most classic of all the spiritual messages. Where your attention goes ‘spirit’ flows. Shamans teach us this. Drinking water is the quickest way to conjuring your Inner Guide.

Singing Strengthens Iour Intuitive Muscles

2-Hum. Sing. Laugh loudly. These sounds require breathing. The muscles in your lungs and diaphragm twitch with excitement. Sounding vibrates all your cells and floods them with fresh blood and oxygen. Quick breathing is like sprinting and are quick and easy exercises to strengthen your fast twitch muscles. I can do this right now sitting in front of the computer by myself.

Lah Lah Lah, Humm Dee Dummm… I am feeding my intuition with fresh oxygen.

Strengthen your Intuition by Carola Marashi M.A.
A Calm Mind is an Alert Mind

3-Number 3 is a Big one for me.

Flood your Self with calming images, thoughts, and feelings.

It’s the soft fluid muscle that’s most responsive. Response is what your Inner Guide wants, not reaction. Fear drowns out intuition. Fear and adrenaline make the muscles ‘crunchy’ and stiff-full of lactic acid. The calm mind is the alert mind.

I’ll drink to that one! clink.

Thanks for reading my blog!

Best Selling Author of ATTRACTOR FACTOR and ZERO LIMITS,

Joe Vitale says

“I’ve known Carola for almost twenty years.
I’m constantly amazed at her ability to listen,
hone in to unconscious issues, and help unravel
the mystery with intuition, wisdom and love.”

Spreading Peace One Breath at a Time,
Carola

Carola is a master! She led me to some important insights with such delicate grace and wisdom. I felt heard and understood throughout our session and realized that no matter what came up for me it would be held with compassion and non-judgment. The precision of Carola’s intuition coupled with a psychology background enables her to cast a wide net–one which is enveloped by her loving presence and the container she’s able to create for any situation. We left our brief session with tangible things for me to work on and, I must say, the things I’ve been struggling with immediately started moving for me — I am so excited to see what’s going to happen next!
