‘We are all given some dose of intuition. We all have an innate ability to sense something deeper, much deeper than what the physical senses can detect. For some it’s very subtle and for others it’s very vibrant. As we walk this path, we are awakening to a time where we’re being invited to acknowledge this intuition and to trust it … deeply.’
You thought you might have heard … something … or maybe you’re sure you did.
You could have just imagined it, but how can you be sure?
Was there really something out of the corner of your eye that you saw … or was it your imagination?
How is it that you just know the answer to that question and yet, you don’t know how you know?
You had a vision of something a little crazy. Where the heck did that come from?
You felt really uncomfortable about a situation and yet you do not know why. Was it just a feeling you got?
For someone who’s beginning to awaken, these subtle occurrences can be dismissed as just crazy ideas or insignificant sensations. Do we dare tell anybody about them for fear of judgment? If they seem a little “Out there” for you, surely they may seem the same to others so, it’s best to keep them to yourself and yet … you cannot shake them because they are occurring more and more and there’s no denying the impact they are having on you.
I was visiting with my sister one afternoon, having a moment of laughter and giggles and in a flash, I had a vision of my mother smiling at both of us. Mom has been deceased for 3 years. How is it I could see her smiling? Was that smile really there or was it my imagination?
My sister’s husband passed away in June. The paramedics confiscated ALL of the medication that he had been taking as a standard procedure when they escorted him away. While traveling down the stairs one morning a few months later, she was abruptly stopped in her stride at the bottom of the stairs, to a pile of pills at the landing. She hadn’t seen these pills for months and right there, was a handful, on the floor, right in front of her. Where did they come from?
How many times I have turned around gently or quickly because I could feel a presence behind me … looking at me, only to be confirmed.
A dear friend of mine went in for a breast exam to have a lump examined. The lump proved to be benign. After completing the exam, she was released. The tech packed all of his equipment but before she left, she asked the tech, “Well, what about my inverted nipple?” After unpacking the equipment, he conducted a couple more tests and guess what? They found cancer. What would have happened if she didn’t ask?
I have another friend that has feathers appear to her regularly. She just knows it’s her dear friend that passed awhile back or her beloved grandma. She knows which one it is. She doesn’t question it … she just knows.
After steadily losing one tooth after another, one day while getting ready for the day, the word, “Scurvy” flashed into the mind of my Mom. At that moment, she knew why she was losing her teeth.
We are all given some dose of intuition. We all have an innate ability to sense something deeper, much deeper than what the physical senses can detect. For some it’s very subtle and for others it’s very vibrant. As we walk this path, we are awakening to a time where we’re being invited to acknowledge this intuition and to trust it … deeply.
If you’re unsure of your ability to sense, it might be helpful to pay attention to how you respond in communication. Do you say things like;
“I see what you mean”.
“I hear you!”
“I can feel that”.
“I know what you mean”.
Each of these statements is a hint at how you intuitively process information as it comes to you. If you can “See” something, your gift may be Clairvoyance. If you can “Hear”, what others are saying, perhaps your gift is Clairaudience. If you can “Feel” the message being given to you, perhaps your gift is Clairsentient and if you just “Know” what they are talking about, your gift may be Claircognizant. The truth is however, we all possess all of these gifts, however we may have one gift that is more dominant than all of the others.
You are so wise, so wonderful and if you gave validation to all of the senses you experience, truly magic would abound in your life.
How do you know what to trust? How do you know what intuition is and what it is like to experience it? How do you know what is intuition and what is reflex, understanding or common sense? Perhaps they’re just unexplained occurrences that simply have no meaning.
When Spirit speaks through visions, feelings, hearing or just knowing, it can be subtle. It’s only when we acknowledge and trust these subtle “Hits” that our ability to interpret the information and proceed in faith, can manifest in our lives to the fullest extent. Trust the subtleties, trust the whisper, trust your feelings, trust the visions and when they gently “Hit” you, acknowledge them and allow them to guide you.
Like any gift or talent, in order for them to grow and develop, they must be exercised. If they are continually brushed aside or ignored, they will shut down. If you continually seek, ask questions and stay open to the invitation of expression, they will expand your world and everything in it. You will begin to awaken to all of the magic and perfection in the Universe. Things that used to be scary will become less and less a threat to you. You will begin to see people as the loving and perfect beings that they are. You will begin to experience more and more serendipity and joy in your life. You’ll find that you’ll more frequently be at the right place at the right time and that opportunity will constantly be presenting itself to you. Even if it doesn’t, you’ll be more and more at peace with what is in your life and refrain from feeling like a victim to life’s circumstances.
There are support materials available to the seeker. Here are a few that are beneficial but they are not the only ones. This is a personal path, so I invite you to seek out those things that resonate with you, embrace them and allow them to support you as you develop your intuitive skills. I also want to stress that everyone has their own gifts. Your talents will be special just for you just like the hairs on your head are like no others or the color of your eyes. You are unique and special. It will not support you to compare your talents with that of others but rather embrace what is natural and gifted to you.
- Books are very helpful. My favorite one is, Discover your Psychic Type by Sherrie Dillard. Sonja Choquette, Trust your Vibes, is another good one. Both of these authors have others books that will assist you as well.
- Gems, stones and crystals are a wonderful way to get in touch with your inner wisdom. Each stone and crystal carries its own vibration and while there are books out there that will offer their supporting properties, I would invite you to gravitate to the ones that resonate with you … even if a book description doesn’t match the vibration you feel to the stone. Stones have a magic all their own and the power to bring comfort, insight, creativity, awakening and healing. http://www.spiralsoflight.com/product/amethyst-double-cluster/
- Taking a walk in any kind of nature whether it’s in the mountains, the beach, the desert, the sun, the wind, the rain or the snow, there’s a subtle melody and movement to all of nature and when you are alone in this place, your senses are heightened.
- Carving out a space of time in your day to meditate and/or pray, is a powerful, powerful activity that allows you to get in touch with yourself, God and your higher power. You have an inner voice that beckons to speak and be heard and if you’re always engaged in activity, on the go, tasking, working, conversing and even exercising, you may miss the wisdom that is being imparted to you. Just like showering, eating, reading, exercising, working or playing, prayer and meditation invites a space and time in your day to stop, plug in and connect. Prayer and meditation fosters insight and conversation with God and our higher self that will impart our own truth. You are so wise and all knowing. Give yourself time and space to get in touch with that.
Intuition is gentle, loving, nurturing, compassionate and intent on showing you the way. Acknowledging the “Hits”, the “Whispers” and the subtle nudges and leadings will guide you along your path and invite you to live for your highest good and purpose. Living our purpose brings us to a space of peace, love, forgiveness and gratitude. When we are here, we are in heaven. Listen to the whisper, explore your gifts and find your home in your heaven.
