After returning from a week in Costa Rica, I felt energized, buzzing with pure pristine energy from life in the rainforest. When I got back home, I used the expansive energy for as long as I could. It lasted for about a week and materialized through my writing. I wrote a script through those glorious seven days.
Then, the natural effects of the buzz started to wear off and reality struck home. Anchorage, Alaska even though coming through a mellow winter, was still cold and not ready to release it's feeling of heavy slumber. It would be at least two months before we thawed out completely and the vitalizing energy of our 24-hour sun cycle was in full swing.
Once I received all that life-giving energy, I was like a junky. I needed more. I wanted to feel that energy coursing through my veins, every day.
Although I am already in touch with my intuition, I felt it was expanded when I was eating the rich coast's raw foods, fresh fruit juices, and hydrating more often in the tropical heat. It was hot. Like Africa hot, but clean living is a way of life there and I fell naturally into the rhythms and pace of the 'Pura Vida' culture. I've always found it curious that my intuition is heightened to a new level when I travel there.
The Alaska Gold Digger Connection
Mid-trip, my friend Turner and I were hanging out on my porch and overheating in the high season heat. So, we decided to cool off in what we call the 'soul pool.' There is a small but magical pool in the condominium development common area. After taking a dip, we splayed out on the plastic lounge chairs and chatted.
We dried off and started talking business and connections. Turner received a call from his good friend and music producer Ronnie King. Ronnie knew I was from Alaska so asked if I had seen the Alaska Gold Diggers show on Animal Plant. I'd never heard of it. Ronnie named the cast 'his girls' because he knew several of them.
Interesting, I thought. I'll check it out.
After a long while lounging in the sun I bid my friend good night and headed inside. I felt the cool of the A/C and turned on the television. And there it was. Five women picking and panning in the Alaska north country. They had to drive an SUV through a dangerous river bed to get to a ramshackle cabin that would be their home base. I saw my phone receiving texts and vibrating on the coffee table. Turner's note said, "Holy Twilight Zone! Turn to station 28. It's on right now!"
I didn't need to switch channels since I was already on it. Clearly we were connected. That's how I define intuition. The synchronicity and connections are magnified. It's life giving, fun, and makes you wonder just how does intuition work?
30-Days of Raw Juicing to Expand Intuition
I want that feeling. The heightened awareness, energy and connection. I've thrown down a gauntlet at my own feet. I want to see how the effects of raw juicing expand intuition. Obviously it's a subjective experience but I've juiced before and always noticed the positive intuition-inducing effects. I'm going to document my juice journey on OM-Times blog so readers can follow the action.
If you're a juicer please feel free to post recipes, information, and encouragement. I will post intuitive highlights for the day.
Day ONE - Intuitive Hits Begin
I was looking for blogs to write my journey on and scanned through several home pages of sites that would align with my intuition-inducing juice mission. After perusing the home page of a different site I saw an interesting blog post title. It was called, "How Erik Davis Invented Networked Mysticism."
I clicked on the title and thought, I wonder if I should contact Stanley Krippner? Odd thought since Stanley is a Psychologist and I had no idea who Erik Davis was, but it stuck out in my mind anyway.
Then, after I read the small blurb about Erik's book Techgnosis, Myth, Magic and Mysticism in the Age of Information, I clicked back to the homepage.
There down below on the middle of the page, I saw an announcement for Dr. Stanley Krippner's April 15th lecture in Brooklyn, New York. Titled, "Exploring the world of dreams at the Observatory Room."
Phenomenal. After one day it's already working! Does it mean anything? I don't know. I sent the link on to a friend in Brooklyn and started blogging.
