How well do you trust yourself when making decisions? Do you often find yourself asking other people's opinions or seeking validation? Or do you confidently follow your gut feeling or intuition? In this episode, Gabriela Brunner of The New Firm gives us a brief description of the Akashic records and the importance of looking for answers within ourselves. If you are curious about how you can tap into your inner wisdom for answers, then keep on listening.
[00:00:00.250] - Gabriela Brunner
Hi, everybody. So I hope you're all doing well. And my name is Gabriela from Gabriela Brunner Coaching and Yoga and all the things, right? So I wanted to hop on live because the last few days have been very charged energetically emotionally, just a lot of things going on in the world.
[00:00:20.640] - Gabriela Brunner
And then even on a more micro level, individually and personally for me and my family. And I've been thinking a lot about just life, right? This year has been goodness, I don't think there's even an appropriate word to express or encompass everything that this year has been for so many people on so many different levels.
[00:00:42.060] - Gabriela Brunner
And sometimes I start to think to myself, Why is all of this happening? Why is this happening? Maybe you're thinking, Why is this happening to me? Why is this happening to my loved one? Just why? Right?
And if you're anything like me, we try to seek answers in the external. So I have a library full of books, personal development books, psychology books, just everything that I can get my hands on to try and help me understand life, right? And my life more specifically.
[00:01:16.700] - Gabriela Brunner
But one of the things I've come to realize is the absolute power of our own internal wisdom, our own internal guidance. And I personally, I don't like to speak for other people, but I personally used to be very strongly connected to my internal wisdom. And I used it to guide my life and my decisions. And then I don't know if it was just life and getting older or having more responsibilities or more things pulling at my time or less energy or whatever it is. I've kind of really gotten away from that.
[00:01:55.380] - Gabriela Brunner
And I tend to be a people pleaser and somebody who really values external validation. I've learned that about myself. And so sometimes it's like I prefer external wisdom or guidance or answers to my own internal wisdom. So I'm not sure if any of you watching this can relate. But sometimes I just feel like it's a lot easier to ask my friend or my husband or whomever or even read it in a book about this or that, instead of really trying to turn inward and really trying to listen to those answers from the inside.
[00:02:35.890] - Gabriela Brunner
So one of the things that I realized that happened with me was that I totally forgot how to listen to my own inner wisdom. And then by totally forgetting how to listen to it, I ended up not being able to trust it because I wasn't sure what I was hearing. I wasn't sure what I was feeling. I wasn't sure what was kind of going on in my own mind and in my own heart. And slowly throughout the years, many, many years, God, the universe, the power is the greater power put people and things in my path.
[00:03:05.930] - Gabriela Brunner
And I picked up the little breadcrumbs, and those things helped me realize basically helped me reconnect to my own internal guidance and wisdom. And I firmly believe that the tool that works the best is the one that works the best for you. So in my case, through a lot of trying, a lot of experiencing, a lot of experimenting, I have figured out there's two main tools that work brilliantly for me. And one is the Akashic records, and two is Kundalini yoga. And for me, it's very important that whatever information or wisdom I get that I can actually ground it into my life.
[00:03:42.150] - Gabriela Brunner
And by grounding, I mean, like, bring it into the physical. It doesn't help to have some kind of theoretical idea out there that doesn't really function in real life. Right. Because we have to live in real life. So what good is it to have this kind of wisdom that tells you something that just you can't even apply it to your real life?
[00:04:01.440] - Gabriela Brunner
So these two ancient practices or practices or technologies for me, help me connect to my intuition, help me connect to my inner voice, my heart, my inner wisdom, and then apply it into my day to day life. And so, for example, the Akashic records are a beautiful, sacred, ancient wisdom. And essentially think of it as like, all of the life experiences that your soul has ever had. And somebody's up there writing everything down, everything that has ever happened to you in this lifetime, in previous lifetimes. So you have to believe in previous lifetimes, I suppose, in order to resonate with this.
[00:04:43.530] - Gabriela Brunner
So it's all written down. And so learning how to get into your own Akashic records, how to access them, it's almost like stepping into your own private library and learning where on the shelf that information is and how to grab it and how to read it and how to get the answers to the questions that you're looking for. And then sometimes we need to then be able to bring that energy into our physical bodies. And so the practice of Kundalini yoga helps to do just that. Also, on the flip side, Kundalini yoga has helped me connect to myself and to my intuition so that I can trust the information that I'm getting in my records.
[00:05:19.220] - Gabriela Brunner
Right. So it can go either way. I would absolutely love to have you join us if this speaks to you, if it resonates with you. As of today, we've got, I think, about half the spots already taken. We're keeping it intentionally small, so there's eight spots available.
[00:05:33.550] - Gabriela Brunner
So there's roughly four spots left. And I'm going to be incorporating Kundalini yoga. Obviously, the training is going to be all about the Akashic records and how to access them and what it means to you and how to use these things in your day-to-day life. But I'm adding the extra bonus, if you want to call it that, of the technology of Kundalini yoga. Also, other yogic practices, if you have questions about that too.
[00:05:54.190] - Gabriela Brunner
So I absolutely would love to have you join us. As I mentioned it's June 6 and June 13 at her creative collective in Mohammed central Illinois and it is live in person, so we will be masking and social distancing and doing all the things to make sure everybody's safe and comfortable. But there's also a beautiful power and magic and being in person, right? So please feel free to reach out if you have any questions, whether you're able to attend this training or not, whether you just have questions about the records or Kundalini yoga or just want to connect and say Hi, I would love to hear from you. I really hope you're having a beautiful day and however you get there, I hope that you trust your own inner wisdom more often than not.
[00:06:36.190] - Gabriela Brunner
Talk to you soon.
