women's brains and developing intuition

by Mona Lisa Schulz

This book is stunning! Every woman needs to read this book, because not only does the author present us with groundbreaking research (easy to understand, btw) on our brains, but also she tells us what this means for us in our daily lives. If you have ever wondered about your own MOOD, ANXIETY, MEMORY or ATTENTION, then this book will give you many valuable answers.

What I found most fascinating is that the health problems we are facing as women today are affected by the dramatic shifts in women’s roles, responsibilities and lifestyles. And these changes are only as recent as 60 years old. Our brains are entirely different from our mothers, and grandmothers, because we’ve had to adapt to a very different world. This has made our bodies (that don’t evolve as fast) a sensitive and reactive landscape to compensate for the changes in deep patterns and structures going on in our brains.

Here's a brief version of An Eleven Step Program for Managing Mood and Anxiety Problems Using Emotional Intuition from Chapter 8:

  • STEP 1: Localize the physical symptom associated with your feelings.
  • STEP 2: Localize the thought pattern associated with the mood or anxiety. (Major three: fear, anger, sadness.)
  • STEP 3: Localize the prompting event.
  • STEP 4: Find the person for which the emotion and its associated message is intended.

Intuitive Buffers:
Use grounding techniques to improve mood and reduce your physical stress. Here are some ground techniques:

  • Stand on cold tile.
  • Wash your face with cold water or hold ice in your hand.
  • Go for a run, do intense exercise, preferably outside in nature, so that you can key in to how your feet are touching the ground and how the wind feels against your skin.
  • Listen to loud music and move your body to the beat. Syncopated rhythms are great because they challenge and attract your attention.
  • STEP 5: Pinpoint what your mood and intuition are asking you to change.
  • STEP 6: Identify emotion and intuition censors.

    I learnt to drive automatic first, when I was 22 years old.

    I just learnt to drive manual/stick-shift last year, when I was 26.

    Totally realistic to learn it later!

    At Apple??? Can you work your magic and get me an iphone before the 29th? ;)

    Do me a favor and read my latest private post. I don't want to explain all over again what I'm going thru right now...

    To ensure I'm constantly learning. :-)

    Chicago's been good - except I still haven't fully adapted to the winters yet!

    I wrapped up my first year and am now back in the Bay Area doing a summer…
