Episode 19: Emotions, Impulse or Intuition – Which is it?

(Released May 5, 2016)

In episode 19, Jim 1537 and his wife, Meremysic, discuss the topic of intuition, how we recognize it and how we separate an intuitive feeling from our own emotions. This is one of our most frequently asked questions. As each of us begins to open up and work with the intuitive side of our natures, we find ourselves needing to be able to separate the responses of higher mind from our own feelings and emotions.

In this episode:

  • What is intuition?
  • Maximum and aphorisms: cultural acknowledgments of intuition
  • Insights, warnings, guidance and options
  • intuition is part of our divine nature
  • Intuitive flashes
  • Ego, emotions and our intuition
  • Confirmation, validation and attachment
  • Karma and intuition
  • And much, much more.

As spiritual people, we are told to trust our intuition.  But how do our own desires and attachments color our intuitive perceptions? Being able to tell the difference between our own feelings and the intuitive guidance we receive is critical to using this gift to its fullest potential.

Episode 11: Making Sense of Your Emotions

In this episode, Jim1537 and his wife, Meremystic, talk about how to make sense of your emotions and how they dramatically impact your spiritual journey.

In this episode:

  • The human struggle with emotions
  • The tendency to take our emotions too seriously
  • The relationship between emotional intensity and reality
  • The connection between emotions and karma
  • Viewing our emotions as positive or negative
  • Separating intuition and emotion
  • Understanding our emotional tape loops
  • And much, much, more….

For all of us, to be human means to struggle with emotions.  In fact, much of our sense of self-perception and identity is based on our emotions. Examining the interplay between how our emotions and our thoughts tie into our karma and our overall spiritual evolution helps us master those emotions, make better choices and ultimately, foster a perspective of non-attachment.

Episode 4: Defense Mechanisms, Rationalizations and It’s Complicated

(Released  September 8, 2013)

The fourth podcast episode explores how the very survival mechanisms that we cling to, the ones that we feel are keeping us alive are actually doing the exact opposite.

In this episode:

  • What are defense mechanisms and what role do they play in our lives?
  • How our rationalizations and defense mechanisms work together
  • Why we rationalize our our own behavior
  • The role of emotional intensity and how it affects our perception
  • The appropriateness of our defensive reactions
  • intellectual vs. emotional understanding
  • It’s complicated as a defensive reaction
  • How do we make our emotions work for us?
  • And much, much more….

In spite of what we believe, our defenses often harm us by preventing us from moving forward rather than from being harmed. Our rationalizations cause us to convince ourselves that our own falsehoods and self-delusions are true, while the pop culture phrase of “It’s complicated” serves to give us the across-the-board excuse that the issues we struggle with are outside of our own control. Jim1537 and his wife, Meremystic, tackle these issues head on by sorting through the many layers we all need to work through in order to transform our lives for the better. Ultimately, this episode provides us with the tools we need to navigate our journeys on earth from the core of our spiritual being in order to achieve our divine purpose on earth.
