Master Cleanse Days 6 – 10

Day 6

After shooting this video, I did Yin Yoga and went into a different dimension. It actually felt like I was tapping into DMT in my brain naturally. I started singing visions similar to ones I’d seen during Ayahuasca ceremonies. It was incredibly profound. The visions were coming extremely quickly and were filling me with the most beautiful sense of peace. I was wrapped in the Love of the Universe…experiencing absolute freedom. I seemed to be flying up through dimensions while being solidly rooted in my body on my yoga mat. This lasted for about 15 minutes. Amazing. I decided to skip the Kundalini Meditation tonight.

My Master Cleanse Journey – Days 1 – 5

My Master Cleanse Journey - Misha Almira

My Master Cleanse Journey –

Days 1 through 5

~

I am 41 years old and weigh 167 as I start my Master Cleanse Journey. Although weight loss is not my main focus for doing it, it has been a constant challenge for me to keep my body balanced so I do want to drop weight as my body sheds toxins.

Food has been my addiction in the past so binging on unhealthy foods has been a source of imbalance. Plus,  I LOVE FOOD! When I was younger and dancing 8 hours a day, I could eat anything I wanted without it affecting me. Now, I have to work harder and be smarter about what I put in my body. I also have to be aware of my mindset around food.

So one of my intentions for doing this master cleanse is to reestablish a healthy relationship with food and eliminate any unhealthy patterns supporting addictive thoughts. This blog is going to take you through my personal journey of fasting and transitioning into the Alkaline lifestyle.

In order to clear my body of toxins, I feel it is necessary to  thoroughly cleanse my kidneys and colon, as well as reduce inflammation and allergies. There are also anti-aging aspects of a long cleanse that I am intrigued by and would like to experiment with.

I am nervous and excited at the same time. My hope in sharing this intimate story and journey is to inspire those who look to food for fulfillment when they are insecure, bored, depressed, sad, or lonely. I have been there and have experienced all of these at many times in my life. Taking the power back will be a constant choice in every moment.

My goal is 21 days on the Master Cleanse and then 11 days of the Alkaline liquid diet to fully transition to a fully alkalized body. I will share details on this when I begin the next phase.

I will be sharing my physical and emotional experience of each day. I will also be posting pictures at day 1, and at the end to see visible results.

What is the Master Cleanse?

~

The Master Cleanse or “Lemonade Diet” was originally designed by Stanley Burroughs in the 1950s. It is a fast that consists of drinking 12 glasses of the lemonade throughout the day for 10 days. In addition, each morning you drink 4 cups of salt water and a laxative tea at night.Some individuals choose to do less and some have even done it up to 40 days.The Lemonade is made with fresh lemon juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper. 
~
 
The Main Reason to do the Master Cleanse is to detox the body. This means allowing your body to rid itself of toxins from the environment, from the food we eat and from waste that has accumulated in our colon. If left unattended, a toxic body can become a breeding ground for all types of diseases including cancer.
~
 
The majority of the toxins that have become stored in the body end up in the fat cells. When a cleanse begins to work, the toxins will be loosened and reintroduced into the system before moving out of the body. This is when we can often experience “a healing crisis” or “detox symptoms.”
 
~
The Master Cleanse is designed to move old toxins out very quickly with a combination of the lemonade, laxative tea, and salt water flush. At the end of the cleanse it is very important to move back into eating food slowly. It is recommended to break the fast with 2 days of fresh orange juice or grapefruit juice. Then, on the 3rd day introduce vegetable broth. On the 4th and 5th days you can eat fresh fruit and salad. It is also recommended to take probiotics before and when reintroducing food in case the friendly bacteria in the colon has been killed off with the rest of the bacteria.

Day 1

~

I woke up this morning and mixed 1 Tablespoon of Celtic Sea Salt in a Liter of warm water. Then, I drank it as fast as I could. I made my lemonade mixture in a gallon jug so I would have it ready for the day. I waited an hour before drinking it so the salt could work its magic. Within the hour it definitely started working and I was amazed at how quickly I could feel the warm liquid traveling through my lower abdomen area. It started gurgling right away. After 2 hours and 4 BM’s I was feeling pretty good. I had a headache and foggy brain, but it was mild.

~

I did Yin Yoga and it was profoundly enjoyable, relaxing and peaceful. I listened to a Kundalini Meditation before bed and slept soundly.

~

Day 2

~

Today, I woke up feeling refreshed and had lots of energy. I did the SWF right away and all went well. My head was clear and I felt motivated. Work was so easy because I had a lot of inspired ideas and my writing flowed effortlessly. I just noticed my mind chatter was less. I had clear thoughts without all the distraction. I was more calm, centered, and grounded. It made for an easy flow all day long.

~

I did Yin Yoga again but it was more challenging. After the ease of the rest of the day, I thought it would be easier. I just noticed a slight resistance to sinking all the way in. My mind still wanted to be in work mode. I did notice about half way into the practice, there was a shift into stillness. My hips were tighter but my spine really opened up by the end. I listened to Kundalini Meditation and fell fast asleep.

~

Day 3

~

I slept so soundly last night and had the sweetest dreams all night. I am not usually a morning person but I woke up wanting to sing with the birds. My skin is changing and smoothing out too. I skipped the SWF this morning and did an extra laxative tea. It is okay to substitute this if you choose. I did notice a slight puffiness around my eyes this morning  but no other detox symptoms so far.  My mind chatter has calmed and my thoughts are more positive. I am joyful and optimistic. I have my gallon of lemonade for the day! I actually love the taste of it and have no hunger cravings at all.

~

Work is more challenging today because my mind just wants to be calm and go inward.

~

After yoga, my meditation was really expansive since I was following my natural inclination to go inward. It would have been nice to have the whole day to meditate, but I chose to do work as usual. I will be listening to a short hypnosis audio for accepting love and Inner Divine Beauty.

~

Day 4

~

I woke up with a clogged right ear which was annoying but not painful. I cannot hear anything and hope it will not affect my balance. I did the SWF and could feel it right away. There is a lot of cleaning out and I feel so good! I have tried to unclog my ear with no luck. I am not really thinking about food at all. My body seems to be getting exactly what it needs from the lemonade.

~

I did Cross Training Yoga for 45 minutes. It was a hard session but I felt really strong. I was definitely more present in my body. Then, toward the end of my session, I was doing reclining pigeon pose and smiled because it felt SO good. I let out a sigh and my ear unclogged completely. Ahhhhhh.

~

I was experiencing layers of subtle bliss in my whole being. It felt so fulfilling to be ultra present with my body as it was moving through the flow. It was as if I could feel every muscle flexing like yoga and my breath for intricately formed as one union. It was a dance of life. I even accomplished poses I’d always had to modify previously.

~

It feels like my body is meant to cleanse and do yoga. I feel joy and bliss like I am falling in love with life. I feel naturally grateful for everything around me, fully emersed in every magnificent moment. I could get used to this kind of happiness.

~

It is late and I am feeling really hungry. I will just go to bed without an audio tonight.

~

Day 5

~

I woke up feeling groggy and a lack of motivation. I am going to the gym to do the steam room and dry sauna. I notice my stomach is noticeably flatter. I can really feel the benefits of the colon cleaning out.

~

After the steam room, my right ear was clogged and hurting. I will try a self-lymph drainage and see if that helps. I did weigh at the gym and am down 7lbs. The great part is I don’t feel weak or flabby like other times I’ve lost weight quickly. I actually feel stronger and more toned. I think the combination of the cleanse and yoga are perfect.

~

My skin is radiant. Even with a few detox symptoms, I have a greater sense of well-being. Any anxiety I felt before is gone. I also have more clarity in my meditations. It feels like the neuropathways in my brain are clear and functioning at a higher level. I will resume the Kundalini Meditation tonight.

When Did Abusive Sex Become Hot?

When Did Abusive Sex Become Hot?

 ~
Let’s talk about sex. I am among the many women guilty of thinking that Christian Grey is sexy as hell, but why? When did I start thinking whips and chains were a turn on? I don’t even find that kind of sex arousing. How did I go from beautiful conscious love making with very evolved men to fantasies of spanking? It is interesting how when my self-esteem started taking a nose dive so did my standard of good sex. When I was too afraid to ask for what I wanted, I started settling for what I got. Then, I started believing I enjoyed it.
~
I asked myself what was so sexy about Christian Grey. This is what I discovered.
 ~
He is sure of himself
He is mysterious
He is passionate
He takes his time
He communicates his needs
He is vulnerable
He is warrior like
He knows who he is
He is sensual
He is strong
He does not apologize for what his desires
~
So if I take the abusive qualities out of the picture, these are qualities I desire. It is not the way he likes to have sex.
~
I can even take it a level further. These are the qualities I want to bring out in myself.  As women, we do not always feel comfortable being the huntress, the seductress, and the one that is in charge. Some of us have tried to embrace this part of us only to find we are left alone. We have let the warrior come out and scared the crap out of the man in the bed with us. Then, we learn to quietly go back to our cage. We learn to be docile and tame again.
~
I realize I am not speaking for everyone because there are women that are very comfortable with the wilder and more dominant parts of themselves. However, I do want to address another aspect of this.
~
I believe our examples of power have either been powerful men or women emulating powerful men. In my experience when I have unleashed the huntress, it has been so overwhelming and aggressive it has taken the role of the masculine in the partner dynamic. Then the masculine either has to take the role of the feminine and submit or run, which is what happens a lot of the time.
~
When Did Abusive Sex Become Hot? Misha Almira
~
I have since realized there is another way. When the feminine is fully embraced, the shadow aspects (repressed parts of us), can be soft and hugely alluring. It does not need to be aggressive in a combative way but can still move like the enormous surge of a Tsunami.
It can have the power equal to the masculine but with a different flavor. It does no good at all for the feminine to mimic or even submit to the masculine. This only results in a lack of respect from both sides. The masculine craves a fully balanced and empowered feminine energy. The problem has been that we have been following the lead of the masculine to find ourselves and looking in the wrong place entirely.
~
The ironic part is that we have done this by the forceful hand of the masculine which has no clue how to show us our true feminine aspects. We must trust and allow these dormant pieces of ourselves to blossom from within.
 ~

A New Paradigm - Misha Almira

A New Paradigm

 ~
The time of letting men show us what our pleasure looks like is an outdated way. Our bodies are Divine and meant for hours of pleasure. Why would we continue to settle for a forceful and aggressive quickie when we are designed to have full body orgasms for hours? Why are we still asking them for permission and submitting to uncomfortable positions to make sure they enjoy it?
~
 Our female bodies respond best when they become soft and open. Shoving something into them with aggression only causes a hardness within our bodies and souls. It forces us into a masculine space instead of in a space of soft reception. Some women have even lost their ability to have orgasms as a result of years of forcing themselves away from their natural state of openness.
~
Your Need For Pleasure - Misha Almira

Your Need For Pleasure

 ~
How many full body orgasms have you had? When was the last time you had multiple orgasms for hours and felt completely satisfied? When was the last time you felt so cherished it brought you closer to Divinity/God/Higher Self?
~
It is time for us to start cherishing our bodies as more than just a vagina and tits. This may sound harsh but we have allowed magazines, porn, movies, and men to decide what is acceptable. We have followed their lead in deciding our own worth and we have put ourselves through hell trying to live up to these standards.
~
Please don’t get me wrong, I am not a feminist in the traditional sense and I am by no means a man hater. I have huge admiration for the masculine that is in balance.  More than ever I am learning to honor the masculine inside myself. Because of this, I am aware of the out of balance masculine and feminine energies that have become prevalent in our world.
~
It starts with us. As long as we keep following the lead of others, we will remain imprisoned in limitations. You may say, “well that is just the way men are” or “well it has always been this way and it will stay that way.” I say this is not true any longer.
You know those women that seem to have it all and yet they are not perfect models?  You try to figure out what they have that makes them so damned happy and successful and…
~
What is it about them? I know a few of these and have driven myself crazy asking this same question.
~
Let me ask you the more important question. Would you like to feel happy, cherished, sexier, more youthful, more empowered, more confident, or radiantly beautiful? You can. Stop and breathe this into your heart.  You can.
~
Would you like to drive men crazy with desire and have a line of men wishing to serve you? Would you like to feel more bliss and pleasure? You can. It is so simple. At first, I did not even believe it. I disregarded the advice for years. I ignored it, thinking it had to be hard. Some part of me felt like I needed to suffer first. Some part of me did not think I was worth it.
~
I even thought I loved myself but then my life kept showing me otherwise. It was easier to accept love that hurt than receive what I was worth. Then when I would get what I was worth, I  would find a way to sabotage it.
~
This perpetual loop of getting less than I was worth, left me constantly yearning for more. I wasn’t even sure what I was longing for.
~
The longing got so intense, that I finally made a change. It did not happen overnight, but it did change.
~
You can make the decision right now to stop settling for less than you are worth. You can start slowly, by making a list of how you want to feel.  Make your own list and write it down. You can start with things you wish your boyfriend or significant other would do for you.  I have given a few examples below.
~
I want to feel loved
I want to feel needed
I want to feel cherished
I want to feel worshiped
I want to feel young and sexy
I want to feel admired
I want to feel accomplished
~
Then, take your hands and place them over your heart while you change the statements. Take 3 deep breaths between each statement. Do this every day.
~
I love myself. I am loved.
I am needed.
I cherish myself. I am cherished
I worship myself. I am worshiped
I am young.
I am sexy.
I admire myself. I am admired.
I accomplish everything I set out to do. I am accomplished.
~
 As you practice this, you will become aware of your needs as they come up throughout your day. When you feel yourself getting frustrated, you can stop and ask yourself what it is that you need. Then, do this exercise. You will start to feel a shift inside yourself and in others around you. It will surprise you how effective this exercise can be.
~
As you get deeply in touch with your needs, you will begin to get more specific.  Allow your list to change as situations present themselves in your life.
~
I am honoring and enjoying my own body more than ever.  I am no longer willing to compromise in places that do not match with my ultimate worth. The most beautiful part is that as a result of my decision to practice this, my relationships have become more incredible and rich. My world is changing around me as a result of my dedication to filling my needs.
~
I began exploring sensual dance. Then, I decided to practice basic Tantra techniques which are amazingly more profound than I ever new. Even the most basic exercises can take your pleasure to a whole new level.
~
The more that we as women start to recognize our needs and our true worth, the more the world will line up with us. We get to decide what is beautiful through our innate Divinity.

How to Gain Power Over Your Addiction

addiction

How to Gain Power Over Your Addiction – Slaying One Dragon at a Time

~

Let’s talk about addiction. Have you ever watched yourself doing something you know is bad for you but you do it anyway?

Do you ever find yourself not being able to stop thinking about that drink you are going to have when you get off or the chocolate cake you are going to eat tonight at dinner?

Have you ever decided to go to a party just for the food or drink? Come on admit it, you have at least done this once right? What about being more excited to have popcorn than the actual movie you are going to see?

~

In the Mind of an Addict

What Happens in the Mind of the Addict?

~
There are tons of books and meetings to tell you all about addiction and how to manage it. I have read a lot and I have been to the meetings. I do not disagree with any of the advice I’ve gotten from many of these sources.
~
Today, I want to talk about what happens in the mind of an addict. For me, addiction starts with an emptiness. It is easy to miss.
Most of the time, we skip over the feeling and go straight to the escape, which is what substances promise us.
They promise that we will instantly feel different…better. We will feel full again. You can pick a different substance each week if you want, but it is still the same emptiness.
That is why there is addiction even after we quit drinking or taking those pills. The emptiness stays and the want to escape can make us crazy especially if we are just trying to stay away from the substance that gave us the quick fix.
Here is the deal. Feeling empty is uncomfortable.
~
 Escaping Addiction - Misha Almira
~
No one wants to go into a black hole or the unknown.
We don’t know what is going to jump out  or consume us. We might not ever come out! Instead of just facing the big scary empty hole inside we start to obsess about escaping it.
It starts with one thought. Then, we lose half the day just thinking about our escape.
Everyone else becomes a nuisance getting in our way of “truly being happy.”  We don’t even see what is happening.
~
Now I’m going to tell you what I have discovered.
~
There are predatory entities or spirits that feed on emptiness, fear, doubt, shame, guilt, remorse, hatred and disgust.
They want us to be swallowed in the emptiness so they have more to feed on and can get control over our minds.
They want to destroy you. If you have ever been deep in an addiction, you know this is true.
They are just waiting for us to start thinking negative thoughts about ourselves and about others.
They also love to feed the addictions. Alcohol, certain drugs, or anything we take too much of can become energetic portals for entities to slip through.
Ever had that feeling like you weren’t being yourself while under the influence?
~
They especially love it when we obsessively think. They come in and start feeding us thoughts that perpetuate our misery.
They entice us with unhealthy thoughts of how that drink will make us feel better.
This is how we lose control of our lives through addiction. It starts with a thought and then we give our power over to these predatory thoughts and powers that influence them.
~
This is not a religious thing, but if you watch it while it is happening it becomes very clear.
~
I will give you an example. The other day, I was sitting at my computer and started feeling bored and hungry.
I started having thoughts about how I had no food in the house and no car to go get any. I was getting mad because my boyfriend had the car. My thoughts were just bombarding me.
I was going to go the store and get nachos and cookies. Maybe I would order pizza. Blah Blah Blah.
~
Food Addiction - Misha Almira
~
Then, I stopped and asked myself what was going on? I took a breath and noticed what I was feeling. I felt desperate inside, bored, hungry, and empty. There it was. Big dark and lonely emptiness.
Then I asked myself if I was okay with just feeling desperate, bored, hungry, and empty.
My body relaxed,  and I breathed in deeply. I instantly felt relief. Just allowing our current experience can give us relief. One of the bravest questions we can ask ourselves is, “how am I feeling right now?”
Our first response might be something like, “I feel like getting the hell out of here!” or “I feel annoyed by these people taking in my way!”
There is always something beneath these types of escape thoughts. They can mask as feelings. The trick is to go deeper.
Do you feel sad?
Do you feel angry?
Do you feel guilty?
Do you feel lonely?
Do you feel scared?
Our ego likes to tell us how ridiculous this is, but I dare you to really try it. I don’t mean ask yourself and then get distracted with better things. I mean ask yourself and truly feel the answer.
~
If we do this often enough, we will start to realize the emptiness is the key to our ultimate fulfillment.
Each time we feel it, it becomes a little less scary. Then, all that emptiness can be filled.
We will notice our creativity coming back and our joy. We all want happiness, fulfillment, and love.
We can start by acknowledging where we are feeling empty. Then, we can work on filling it.
It sounds simple and it actually is, if you are willing to stop right now and notice. We can set an intention of filling ourselves with Divine Love.

How to Shed Our Old Skin Through Tears & Compassion

How to Shed Our Old Skin Through Tears & Compassion- How Porn led to Honor

How to Shed Our Old Skin Through Tears & Compassion  – How Porn Led to Honor

I saw a TED talk about the side effects of watching porn. This hit close to home because I’d had a couple of boyfriends that were addicted to porn. Once I went 6 months without sex, while in a relationship. He just wasn’t interested but masturbated all the time. Needless to say, this caused personal issues for me and a lot of doubt. I tried to make sense of it but always came up short with answers. I blamed myself and thought something was wrong with me for years as a result of it. Dance and sex had always been two places I could always let go and feel completely free.  I went from being very confident sexually to doubting everything.
~
When I saw this TED talk from a guy that had been addicted to porn, I was very curious.
 ~
He said he stopped watching porn for several reasons, but there was  one that really stood out for me. He said before porn, he would think about dialog with girls, caressing, and kissing. He would go through scenarios in his mind of what he would say and how she would respond. He was genuinely curious about her.
~
After porn, he would think about penetration and lost interest in the other aspects he previously entertained.  He pointed out how in porn scenes they don’t use their hands. It is all focused on the genitals, with the woman usually in a very uncomfortable position. He went on to say he noticed his urges progressing into more violent desires of dominating the female. He said he noticed it got into his mind and almost seemed to take over his thoughts.
~
I found this interesting especially because when this previous boyfriend would initiate sex, it was not about getting to know me but more about “getting off.” I often felt like he hadn’t even been there with me. There was little caressing, less kissing, and no genuine interest in what I liked. It was, “clothes off face down.” I accepted this because I was too uncomfortable to talk about my lack of satisfaction. I would casually mention Tantra, but that was shut down really quickly.
~
Porn Addiction - NothingTo Do With You - Misha Almira
 ~
When it occurred to me that we had gone 6 months without touching, I realized I did not even miss it…with him. I was young and had a healthy drive but really didn’t associate what we did with pleasure anymore. Any desire I did feel, I would suppress it immediately because it was usually around other men.
~
I knew my boyfriend had a porn addiction and I felt helpless to change it. I had accepted that he no longer desired me. I didn’t talk about it and just let a lot of assumptions fill my mind. I lost hope that it would ever change. He said he liked his freedom to do what he wanted. I just saw the relationship ending slowly. Eventually the lack of talking and connecting killed what we once had.
~
So, when I saw this man courageously standing up and talking about his addiction to porn so openly, I had so much admiration for him. I also immediately felt triggered. All these old emotions started surfacing. Those memories of that girl I once was, came to the forefront.
~
I was also strangely inspired and filled with hope. I started talking to my now boyfriend about it and getting more worked up. I talked about how I wanted the whole porn industry to be shut down and human trafficking to stop.
~
Before I knew it I was noticing how much this had opened my old wounds. I was stuck in blame. I was blaming men for being sleazy, and blaming women for perpetuating it. Then, I judged them for a while. I  started to notice how drained I was feeling by blaming my outside world and wanting it to change.
~
“Wow, where was this downward spiral coming from? Who was I being right now?”
~
I stopped and took in a deep breath. Then, I asked, “what am I feeling?” It hit me hard. I got in touch with the old anger, shame, sadness, betrayal, and feeling less than. I felt disrespected  and devalued. I let the emotions wash through me and I cried. I cried tears of remorse from all the loss I felt. I cried for all the needs I had that were ignored and neglected… by me.
“Wait, by me?” “What?”
~
Through the tears, I came to see how I had turned my back on me. I cried for denying myself true fulfillment. Then, I cried tears of compassion for myself, for other women, for innocent children, and for men. I cried tears of forgiveness.
~
I asked myself, “what do I need to feel honored, cherished, respected, and seen for more than just being a female body.”
~
Honoryourself
~
A big sigh came as I cried more tears of compassion.
I heard, “give to yourself…honor yourself.”
~
I made the decision to honor myself. I questioned what that looked like but  made this my new intention. I realized the only power I had was to make a change in my perspective. I recorded the video below to share my experience after making this decision.
~

~

We get to honor ourselves and when we do, others will follow our lead. It is time for us as women to cherish our bodies, our minds, our souls. We are temples of the Divine, only we have forgotten. It is time to remember we are Goddesses in a body.

We are not here to lower ourselves to the needs of others. We are not here to mimic the masculine as our example of power. We are not opposing the masculine or in a power play with it. It is not a competition between us and them. That is an old paradigm.

We are here to remember our radiance and inner power. We are the examples of the Empowered Feminine.

How to Change Your Frequency to Attract the Things You Really Want

Happy Couples Don't Just Happen - Misha Almira

How to Change Your Frequency to Attract the Things You Really Want

Ever wonder why some people have all the luck and some just can’t get a break? Have you asked yourself why you keep attracting jerks and are just about ready to give up on relationships entirely? What is it about some girls that seem to have it all? It doesn’t just happen by accident. Allow me to answer by going on a bit of a tangent.

~

powerovermind

Everything in creation is vibration. Very dense matter vibrates at a slower rate. Light vibrates at a very high rate. We have all heard the saying, “faster than the speed of light.” Some light we can experience with our physical senses and some we cannot. The reason for this is we are not vibrating at a high enough frequency to perceive all light or sound waves. When people experience out of body or near death experiences, they often speak of seeing a magnificent light or light beings. They often speak of traveling some place in an instant. They are able to perceive this because they are in their light body, which is a vibrational match for other light bodies at a higher vibration.

~

We cannot normally see ultraviolet light or electricity. However, we know they exist. We have also learned to work with them for our benefit.  So this directly relates to our bodies and what we are experiencing all around us.

~

We are like tuning forks, constantly matching up with other tuning forks at random. Unless we learn to work with vibration intentionally for our highest benefit, we are at the mercy of our environment and our thoughts.  Where am I going with this?

~

 If we are all made up of matter but our essence/soul is a light body then how do we raise our vibration in our body? How do we manifest the life we truly want?  Can you feel a difference in your body after meditating, praying, chanting, hypnosis, or even massage? Why is this? In these activities we are lining up with our higher self, our light body. We are raising our vibration by relaxing the body and allowing our bodies to match the vibration of our higher self. We are putting ourselves in a state of gratitude, love, and appreciation.
~
These are all high frequencies of energy. This is actually our natural state of being. We just get distracted with dense energy outside ourselves, which lowers our vibrational frequency to match what is happening to us. We start to believe that we are just bodies, just our stress, just our relationships, and that our past dictates our future. This is not true. Just because your last boyfriend was a jerk, does not mean you have to keep being a vibrational match to him or others like him.
~
Our goal is to raise our physical vibration to a higher level of frequency to match our ultimate desires, not our outside circumstances, and not what we have felt worthy of based on our past.
~
You see, most of us desire love, happiness, joy, purpose, prosperity, abundance, and bliss. However, what we end up experiencing often is lack of satisfaction, poverty, anger, frustration, boredom, fear, guilt, shame, obligation, etc…
~
We always experience an exact match to what we vibrate with. What this means is, if we are feeling road rage, we are an exact match for anger. That is why when we get to the office and our boss yells at us, it seems right on par with our morning. Then, our coworker makes us mad, we have to wait in lines for our lunch break so don’t have time to eat. Then, on the way home, we get pulled over for a brake light that has mysteriously gone out.
We attract other situations that resonate with anger and perpetuate it. By the end of a day filled with anger, we come home to find our dog has gone to the bathroom on our bed and our kids are fighting. You get the picture right?
We essentially get in our own way by what we decide to pay attention to on a regular basis. We look at it as luck, but it is a choice. This is a very basic form of self-sabotage, we just are not always aware of it. Essentially, self-sabotage is being a vibrational match to old behavior.
Everything is energy - Misha Almira
~
Another way we can sabotage ourselves is by focusing on what we are doing wrong or what we can’t do. We may even feel like this is a step in the right direction to better ourselves. What we are actually doing is creating a feeling of guilt or shame. Then, we are vibrating at the level of these things.
We will then create more situations in our lives that cause us to feel more guilt, shame, or unworthiness. It can be frustrating when we become aware of what we are doing wrong then everyone around us starts pointing out what we are doing wrong or how incompetent we are!
Can you think of an example of this in your life? I actually lost scholarships to Universities because of this loop. I have also lost a lot of high-income opportunities as well.
~
The other trap is to get caught in a loop of blaming others. It is easy to waste time and energy on blaming the boss for being a bully. The other one is to blame our wives or husbands for making us feel a certain way. Perhaps we blame the kids for making us late which ruined our whole day.
This is a definite way to lower our vibration and become a vibrational match of being a victim. Then, more and more situations come up for us to be victimized and feel pathetic. This is a form of self-pity sabotage.
The world can always hold you down if this is what you choose to focus on. The past only equals the future if you decide that it does.
~
I am not saying it is easy to break out of old habits or abusive situations. I am saying there is a way out and it will take awareness and courage. You can have what you want even if you don’t believe it right now.
~
 Focus on the Beauty of Life - Misha Almira
~
The good news is we can shift any situation by intentionally putting ourselves in alignment with what we want and ONLY focusing on that.
When we do this, we notice the lights turning green all the way to work, a coworker bringing us our favorite latte, the boss giving us that new account we have longed for, the cute guy down the hall finally asking us out, and the world becomes an exciting playground of possibilities.
~
It is not hard. It only takes a little awareness and can make all the difference in your life. We want to raise our vibration to the level of all that we want because what we want almost always has a higher vibration than what we don’t want. Just the realization of this raises your vibration.
~

How do we do raise our vibration/frequency?

 ~
Let’s make some lists. First, make a list of all the situations that have caused you to feel guilt, shame, or fear. Take your time and be thorough. When you feel complete. Burn it immediately. Watch the smoke rise and know that you are releasing these old behaviors. Forgive yourself. Say it out loud.
  • I forgive myself.
  • I am not to blame.
  • I have not done anything wrong.
  • I forgive others.
  • Others are not to blame. (use names if it helps)
  • They have not done anything to harm me
  • I cannot be harmed.
  • I am safe.
 ~
Now, make a list of what you love about yourself. If it is difficult, you can picture yourself as a child. You can even hold an old baby picture. Then, list as many things that you love about that baby or child. This is a way of filling your love bank account. This is essential.  Read it and add to it daily. We cannot give to others if we are empty on the inside.
~
Next, send kindness and goodness to others. You can send compassion, peace, well-being, and health. Send goodness to yourself.
 ~
worth2
~
What does this have to do with not attracting jerks anymore? When I diligently started doing this work, I literally pushed or vibrated an abusive man right out of my life.
It was not hard and it was the best thing that could have happened to me. I have also done this to bring my soul mate into my life. If you keep focusing on all the ways your ex was a jerk, you are an exact match for all of those traits.
You are putting in an order for exactly that. If you continue the exercise above to raise your vibration and then start focusing ONLY on the characteristics you want in a mate, you start resonating with that. You start drawing that to you. This works and works fast if you are diligent.

My Battle with Darkness & Light

 

Misha Almira - Battle of Light & Dark

My Battle with Darkness & Light – Psychic Attacks & How to Protect Yourself

~

There has been a battle going on inside me and in the world for a while now. It is the battle between light and dark.  I would wake up feeling drained and ready for sleep. It felt like my nights were filled with fighting entire battles.

~

Even throughout the day, I would have a sense of constantly having my guard up. There was an awareness at all times on my inner world, putting up protective shields, with one eye watching psychic predators at all times. It would trigger fight or flight and was forcing me to be on high alert with my surroundings. There was a threat of allowing other beings into my field with the thoughts I was following in my mind.

~

It seemed that all the work I did to increase light and raise frequency was putting out an especially attractive call to darkness. Psychic attacks are happening to more of us lately, especially if we are diligently working on raising our vibration. This is actually one of the many symptoms of the opening and moving beyond 3rd Dimension (3D).
~
Af first, I was relying heavily on Archangels and Angels to protect me. What I noticed was sometimes it felt like they were not really helping me. At first I judged this as I must have offended them in some ways, or maybe I was asking too much from them. I was just noticing that when I did call them in, it did not always feel like a positive shift in energy.
~
This started turning my world upside down. I was questioning everything. I was questioning my fundamental beliefs about light, dark, higher allies, God, Creator, Christ, Existence, and Divinity. What could I put my trust in? If I could not trust Angels and light beings, what could I call on for protection? What did this mean?  My whole life has been dedicated to Christ Consciousness and serving God. I was being rocked and had no clue where to look.
~
Then, I became aware of several synchronicities that were occurring and they were presenting the same message. I was even seeing 1111 everywhere and waking up at 4:44 a.m.  on consecutive mornings.  I kept hearing the message, ” trust nothing outside yourself. Go within.” I was still being guided, but big questions were coming up.
~
I already had an appointment scheduled to work with a Shamanic Healer that I have been working with for the past 5 years. We opened Sacred Space and it was more powerful than usual. I could feel the protection all around me. I could sense the positive energy allies. I let my guard down and decided to trust the process.
~
She did a healing and tracked the source of this feeling of being haunted or stalked by darkness.  She did not feel like I’d let anything inside me which I knew. Although I still found relief in hearing someone else say it.
~
Then, she tracked it back to an old contract in another lifetime. Somehow this felt right. In this past lifetime, I had committed myself to service of others. I said I was available as a conduit for beings to work through me. Some of the work was used for good and some for bad. I had agreed to both. Everything she said to me resonated because I was already getting these messages from my inner guide. Once again, I got the message to trust myself and go within.
~
You see, in addition to all I’ve talked about, I also get frequent feelings of shame and guilt. I feel like somehow I am not a good person and that I’ve abused my power before. Although, I have no memories of doing this. Whenever I have tapped into my power, I instantly become afraid and shut it down by giving it away to others. I have not been able to fully embrace my power for years and have felt like I’m stuck in an elusive prison. With this new knowledge, I finally understood on a very deep level.
~
Revoking Contracts
We worked on revoking these old contracts and agreements that I had made previously. I made the decision to revoke these old arrangements and to bring my power back. All the power that I had given freely. Then, as I felt my energy lightening and my energy coming back I was aware of a slight dread. It was as if I was waiting for a backlash. We continued to cut cords and then focused on bringing in the light. I set an intention to make my powers available to the light that transmutes darkness and is here for my highest good. It was safe to trust myself and my power.
~
After the session, I felt free.  I felt a lightness of being and more personal power. Then, as night came, I started feeling  a slight resistance to being influenced from something. There were incidences that were triggering fear in me and I could feel  a certain vulnerability. It felt like a psychic attack. I instinctively started calling on Angels for protection but did not feel a shift. I put up my own protection and focused on activities to raise my vibration. It shifted after about 20 minutes.
~
I have since become aware of a third factor in the battle between light and dark. I have written more about it HERE.

Power of Intentions & How They Can Help Transform Your Life

Intentions Are Powerful - MishaAlmira.com

Power of Intentions & How They Can Help Transform Your Life – Self Development Tips

Years before I heard about The Secret by Rhonda Byrne,  or Law of Attraction, I heard about intentions. At first, I undervalued them as just another way to say affirmations. I loosely practiced setting an intention each day. Then, I started noticing getting exactly what asked for. As an example, I set my intention to be pleasantly surprised around money and love. Later that day my client sent $300.00 to me to thank me for all the work I’d been doing for him. Then, my boyfriend surprised came home and was showering me with love more than usual.
~
 I quickly realized through the practice of setting regular intentions, I was reaching my goals at an even faster rate. I started playing with them. I would playfully say I wanted someone to call me Beautiful. Next thing I know, several people are referring to me as Beautiful. You get the picture.
~
Proof That Intentions Work!  
 
 
According to Dr. Jeffrey Utz, Neuroscience, pediatrics, Allegheny University, different people have different percentages of their bodies made up of water. Babies have the most, being born at about78%. By one year of age, that amount drops to about 65%. In adult men, about 60% of their bodies are water.
 ~
This is good news for us! We are a container of water that is 60% full so what we think changes our cells instantly. It can be that simple.

Goals vs Intentions - Mishaalmira.com

The Difference Between Goals & Intentions

~

Let’s say you want to go to Manhattan but you start in Brooklyn. Manhattan is our goal or end result. You get a cab get inside and tell the cab driver to drive. You know you want to end up in Manhattan and that is clear. Now all you have to do is lean back and wait until you get there. You could be picturing in your mind all the things you want to do when you get there and how great it will be.
~
The only problem is you did not tell the cab driver where you want to go. You just got in and told him to drive. You may have told him you’d really like to see Manhattan one day, but this is vague. We want to be specific.
~
When we use intentions, we are stating what we want to happen each day. It allows our driver to take the fastest route to our destination. It allows our Universe to get behind us and help us get there. Without intentions, we are just getting in and allowing ourselves to go on a ride. We do not know where we will go along the way, or how long the ride will take. We could very quickly end up in a place we really don’t want to be.
~
Once the driver knows where we would like to go, we can let it go and enjoy the scenery, knowing we are on our way.
We can play with it. Some days my intentions are general like, “I am easily creating feeling happy today.” Other days is could be, “I am easily creating getting hired for this job on the spot.” Another one I really like is, “I am easily creating gentleness and ease in all that I do.” There are so many brilliant examples. I have included more examples below.
 
I am easily creating
  • My day going smoothly
  • Receiving money today
  • Being pleasantly surprised
  • Feeling more love and compassion
  • Getting a raise
  • Accomplishing a new task
  • Gentleness in all that I do
  • Transformational insight coming to me
 

Affirmations

Affirmations are slightly different than Intentions. Affirmations are repeated to change a limiting belief we have. They replace negative self-talk at a conscious level. We will talk later about conscious level versus unconscious level. Affirmations are presented from a conscious level and through enough repetition, we are able to replace the negative programming we tell ourselves and have received from others.

We use affirmations like we are listening to a broken record, skipping on the same phrase. Our negative self-talk has no room to speak and eventually our subconscious mind starts to believe the new statements. With hypnosis, this can happen even faster, but affirmations are effective in breaking a habit. If we stop putting garbage into our mind, we will stop getting garbage for results. Then we quickly become aware of where some of the undesirable life situations are coming from. More on that later too.

Hopefully, now you can see a clear difference between intentions and affirmations. I have listed a few examples of useful affirmations below. Then I will explain how we use them.

  • I am a good person
  • I love myself and others
  • I forgive myself and others
  • I am beautiful or handsome
  • I radiate youth
  • I am getting younger
  • I am confident
  • I am worthy of all good things
  • I make more money than I spend
  • I am abundant
  • I have more than enough
  • I am enough

You can use affirmations in different ways. You will want to repeat them regularly. You can pick just one and repeat it at least 9 times preferably more. I have listed a few ways to practice them below.

1. You can say them out loud while sitting with your eyes open.

2. You can write them down and read them in the morning and at night.

3. You can turn off the music in your car and say them while you drive (This is one of my favorites)

4. You can just think them silently while you exercise (This actually increases my endurance and stamina.  You really get to see the power of the mind at work)

5. You can think them silently while you drift off to sleep.

These are just a few examples. You will find your favorite ways to use them as you continue your practice. They can actually become addictive because it feels so much different than negative self-talk. If you notice emotions coming up, know that they are working!

How Do I Use Intentions?

Take a minute in the morning to set at least one intention. Write it down and read it. Then, put it aside and know that the Universe is taking care of it. Try to forget about it and go about your day.  So let’s get started.

Take a moment to get still right now and ask yourself how you would like your day to unfold. Then, breathe into it. See what comes up the strongest. If you have several that is fine too.  I like to start it like this, “I am easily creating…”
 
You fill in the blanks and write it down. I like to do this because the subconscious mind can be more engaged. Also, I love to go back and look at all the intentions that have happened. It is fun to see how it becomes a Universal Bucket List, being checked off one intention at a time. It can be fun and is so simple. Enjoy!

What is Insomnia & How I Kicked Its Butt!

Insomnia Solution - Are You Sick of Getting No Sleep?

 What is Insomnia & How I Kicked Its Butt!

 ~
Are You Sick of Not Getting Any Sleep? Would You Actually Consider Selling a Kidney Just to Make it Stop?
 
~
 
Insomnia can steal your life a little at a time. It takes the fun out of your days and leaves you in a desperate state night after night. At first, you think I’ll just find some good books and get ahead on my reading. I can use this to my advantage and the reading will make me sleepy. Genius! Then, you are done with your book and staring at the clock at 4 am. By the time 6 am, comes around, adrenaline kicks in and you feel invincible. This plan will work! Tonight you will get some sleep and it will all be a fading memory.
~
However, after repeating night one, you start reevaluating your plan. This time there is no adrenaline, your eyes are burning, you don’t know how you are going to muster the energy to get dressed much less get through the entire day!
 ~
On night 3 you cannot even read the words on the page, you make yourself get up and go out. You think maybe if you go to an all night coffee shop, it will pass the time. On the drive there, you are seriously questioning your driving skills and sanity. Even traffic lights are proving to be a major source of confusion. You make it there and have a hint of hope that things will be okay…eventually. There are people here, just like you, drinking coffee at 3:00 am. You will be fine somehow. At least you are not all alone.
 ~
The fourth night, you are delirious. There is no other word for it. You are texting your friends crazy shit that makes no sense.  You are starting to see things. When you drive, you are swerving to avoid hitting little kids playing in the street, only to realize there is nobody there. You decide to just go home and stay there for everyone’s safety.
 ~
You watch all the movies you can find, read more, write some, and go absolutely mad! Then, after a long excruciatingly long night, the sun rises. The worst part is trying to cope like a normal functioning person in the daylight. You are having so many accidents and mishaps at work, you are certain today is the day you will get fired.
 ~
You start to care less about others and their petty concerns. You are fighting to just survive the day. Why are they talking to you about the latest shoes they found on sale? Why are they talking to you at all?! You are turning hateful by the second. It seems to never end.
 ~
You try bargaining with an invisible Higher Power. You convince yourself you must be in some sort of purgatory. Surely, you must have died and you are not aware of it. Then, you start pleading to come back. You start looking for some redeemable qualities to your previous life. You make promises to God that you know you can’t keep, but you are desperate enough to try.
 ~
 
Insomnia Solutions - Are You Sick of Not Getting Any Sleep?
 
You Are Not Alone
~
 
Roughly 60 million other Americans suffer from sleep disorders each year. Some people have short periods (days to a few weeks) of difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep (called acute insomnia). Others have this difficulty for a month or longer (called chronic insomnia). Some individuals even suffer for years. As you can see from the one example above, Insomnia can be very disruptive to a person’s life, so understanding insomnia can be essential in finding relief and a lasting solution. For some, it is not as obvious. Some individuals can fall asleep but struggle with staying asleep.
 ~
There are many different symptoms that are often overlooked such as waking too early, difficulty falling asleep, not feeling rested after a night’s sleep, daytime tiredness or sleepiness. Often, a person may think they are getting sleep, but if they are not staying asleep, they may not be getting the quality sleep they need. This can cause sleep deprivation and symptoms of insomnia as well.
 
 
Insomnia Symptoms
 
How it Hurts You

Misha Almira- Insomnia Relief
 

The Secret Combination

 ~
I was one of the lucky ones that suffered for years from insomnia. I tried many different pills, tinctures, and remedies. For years, I was dependent on Tylenol PM. They claim it is not addictive, but I felt like I needed it every night just to get to sleep. After taking it for a while, I found myself waking in the middle of the night with restless legs and a sort of nervous energy in my body. I tried working out really hard before going to bed so I was completely exhausted. I would still wake in the night.
 ~
Then, purely by accident, I found the perfect combination. The best part is, It has continued to work for me. I find that I fall asleep, sleep soundly all night, and wake up more refreshed. After years of being a very moody morning person, I now actually wake up smiling. I might even say I feel happy. Just don’t tell my friends. I hate to spoil my reputation. I don’t want them to think I don’t appreciate them bringing me coffee in bed. What is my SECRET?

Why Don’t You Change So I Can Be Happy?!

If We Are Going to Love Well, We Have To Stop Seeing People As Problems or Their Situations As Problems
– AdyashantiLearning How to Love

Learning How to Love

Our significant others can be our biggest button pushers and greatest teachers.  We can see many ways that they could improve, especially when they are annoying us. When they finally learn how to listen, they will be perfect! I wish they would just get off the computer and take me out! Sound familiar?

If we can go a little deeper, one step further, we will realize the actual truth. They are us! They are a perfect mirror reflection, showing us where we can love more. They remind us of the places we have denied in ourselves. They are teaching us how to love and I  don’t mean how to love them. Although, loving them will be a by-product of fully loving ourselves. Loving ourselves is the true gift in all interactions that annoy or even anger us. It is also a chance to get our power back.

We give of ourselves until we are empty and there is nothing else to give. Then, we expect others to give us love, compassion, acceptance, fulfillment. We even get angry if they deny us of this. The question is, why would they love an empty shell? Think about it. Most of us run from emptiness every chance we get. Can you remember being around someone that was needy and clingy? What is your first reaction? I know mine is to run the opposite direction. Unfortunately, this is the same dynamic that happens in relationships all the time.

Reading this may upset you. I know reading or hearing things like this would make me mad in the past. I’d walk away grumbling something like, “get out of my face with this fluffy love yourself crap! He is the one that needs to change!”  Until I experienced it for myself, I would get annoyed and hit the reject button on this type of advice. I was more comfortable blaming others for my suffering… for my emptiness. This went on until I’d had enough. When I had one failed relationship after another and heard the statement, “you just need to love yourself” repeatedly, I gave up. I decided to surrender. The answer I didn’t know was how to love myself. I got the message loud and clear, “just ask.” Could it really be that simple? Isn’t this the message in all the relationship, self-help, and spiritual books I’ve read? I decided to try it. I finally just asked, “how do I love myself?”

That moment is when the door opened, revealing the answer. It wasn’t just one answer. It was a series of answers unfolding from one moment to the next. My life started presenting me with opportunities to choose to love myself. Now, it is an ongoing dialog, a relationship with Creator, Higher Self, and the Universe. All I have to do is pay attention.

Each time we find ourselves getting impatient with others or noticing the road rage escalating, it is a chance to choose to love ourselves. Each time we want our partner to be different, to act different, to feel different, we can ask a question. We can ask ourselves, “what am I feeling right now, inside my body? This is the fastest and easiest way to get really present so we can hear the answer. This is the first step to self-love. Then, we can ask ourselves, “What would it look like to love myself right now?”

Play with it. Explore and discover yourself, on new levels. Appreciate you as much as you would a new lover.  When you do, you will realize it is not a selfish, self-centered, arrogant choice. It is fulfillment for you and everyone around you. When you are irresistible to yourself, you become irresistible to others as well. Then, miraculously others change right before your eyes.
