Your Intuition Is Your Guide

Are you conscious of your inner voice? Do you take notice of it? (By the way, I’m not referring to the person who criticizes you!) I’m referring to the one that softly whispers ideas and suggestions to you, the kind that the other voice may try to silence by exclaiming, “Are you crazy?” This necessitates stepping outside of our comfort zone, which must be avoided at all costs (even if the cost is living a life of mediocrity instead of the one of your dreams).

Unfortunately, the latter is the one that most of us are aware of and pay attention to. The gentler one, our intuition, is frequently overlooked (if we can even hear it at all). The tragedy here is that our intuition is the one who truly has our best interests at heart. Our shadow voice (the louder, more aggressive one) also cares about our well-being, but in a protective way.

What’s the harm in protecting us? I know you’re thinking it! It restricts us and, in the end, erodes our soul’s well-being. And, believe it or not, this isn’t good for our physical or emotional well-being! If you are unfulfilled on a soul level, you will gradually and imperceptibly develop a nagging feeling of general discontent, which can have a rippling effect on your mood, self-esteem, and, ultimately, your physical and mental health. But that’s a topic for another article…

If you listen to your intuition, it will gently push you beyond your comfort zone, but never further than you are capable of. It will both challenge and support you. It is always looking out for your best interests, on all levels: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It will not only gently nudge you in frightening directions that will yield enormous and unimaginable rewards, but it will also gently nudge you when it is time to stop or turn around.

If you’re not used to listening to your intuition, it will take time and practice to learn to do so. You may be unsure which voice is which at first (especially since your shadow voice often sounds very reasonable), and using your intuition is similar to using your physical muscles. You must use it on a regular basis for it to be in the desired shape.

So, how do you better understand your intuition? First and foremost, begin to be aware of any hunches, feelings, or ideas that arise. Take note of the voice that goes with it. Is it gentle, positive, and encouraging? 

It’s more likely to be your shadow voice if it’s aggressive, domineering, or employs scare tactics. Is it a loud and threatening warning if you get a feeling of forewarning? (shadow). Or an obstinately knowledgeable one? (intuition).

The scary thing about trusting your intuition when it’s new to you is that it’s not based on logic, and what it suggests to you often cannot be justified logically. However, with practice and trust, you’ll learn that knowing something is the right thing to do is in your best interests. It will be easier to ignore your own and other people’s shadow voices (who will fear for your best interests on your behalf).

Starting small is the key to developing this essential trust in one’s intuition. If you’re not familiar with your intuition, don’t make life-changing decisions based on it (you might still be confusing your two inner voices). Allow your intuition to guide you with smaller decisions and wait for the gentle knowing feeling. Don’t expect an immediate response, but keep an eye out for it; it will come, and you’ll know when it does. 

As you tune in more and more, you’ll notice that you suffer less and less from worry or anxiety. You’ll have faith that everything will work out fine, and you’ll often find that it works out even better than you could have imagined!

Using Meditation to Clear Blockages

In human bodies, there are seven primary Chakras. Each one has a name, a role, an impact, and a color. They are the human body’s seven energy centers. 

The chakras represent the various stages that we must go through in order to reach nirvana. We begin at the bottom and work our way up. The crown center is the pinnacle, which is nearly impossible to achieve.     

We focus on the base center in meditation, bringing a bright light up through each chakra to the crown center and back, taking deep breaths with our nose and gently releasing through our mouth while only focusing on the light and chakras.

You’ll know whether there’s a blockage if you can feel it. This is why, before you begin, you must first learn about chakra meditation. It’s a fantastic technique to clear your body of toxins. If one of your chakras is blocked, you will experience weird sensations or feelings; simply relax and stop or continue focusing on that chakra to determine the source of the problem.

Any obstruction can be removed and mended. This is what causes people to feel unbalanced. Usually, one or more of their chakras are blocked. It is necessary to meditate in a tranquil and quiet environment. With your feet on the ground and your palms facing up, take a seat. Before you begin, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths to help you relax. Then begin your chakra meditation by visualizing a brilliant light.

How to Trust Your Intuition

Developing intuition starts by realizing you have it already. If you’ve ever had a hunch about something, that was intuition. Intuition is just your mind using more than what you are consciously aware of. But can you trust your intuition? How do you improve it?

Developing Intuition in Three Steps

1. Recognize it and encourage it.

2. Study it to make it more trustworthy.

3. Give it good information to work with.

Try to find areas in your own life where you naturally intuitively operate. What is something that you are just naturally good at without studying? What is an area where you trust your gut and it is almost always right? That is your intuition speaking, continue to listen and nurture it.

Of course, intuition can also be a warning device. When you get the sense “something isn’t right here” that is your intuition talking and you’d be smart to pay attention.

Have you ever considered purchasing a car and then you start seeing them all over? Looking for and recognizing a thing trains your mind to find more of it. The same process will happen if you watch for your intuition – you’ll start to see more of it.

Unfortunately, a strong hunch can be for irrelevant reasons too. If you were hit by a yellow taxi as a child, you might have “intuitive” hunches not to get into yellow taxis for the rest of your life. So even learning to recognize your intuition and encourage it may leave you wondering when to trust it.

Study Your Intuition!

Start questioning your hunches. Study your strong feelings about that taxi, and you might say, “Oh, it’s just my fear of yellow taxis.” Get in the habit of paying attention to and studying your intuitive feelings.

Where does your intuition work best? If you’re always right about your intuitive stock picks, give a little credence to them. On the other hand, if your hunches about people are usually wrong, don’t follow them. Just pay attention more, and you’ll be developing intuition about your intuition.

Give Your Intuition Good Information!

Your skill, knowledge, and experience determine the potential effectiveness of your intuition. Learn enough about a subject, before expecting good hunches about it, or before trusting the hunches. Work in the area you want more intuition in. When enough information is in your mind, it will go to work for you with or without your conscious participation, so feed it well.

Recognize your intuition and you’ll have hunches and ideas more often. Study it and you’ll learn when to trust it. Give it good information and you’ll be repaid with good hunches and ideas. This is the simple formula for developing intuition.

8 Steps to Self-Forgiveness

In our journey to inner peace and healing, both guilt and forgiveness of self and others have a profound effect on this process.

Guilt is defined as a feeling of culpability especially for imagined offences or from a sense of inadequacy; a self-reproach; and forgiveness as the act of forgiving or the ceasing of feeling resentment against an offender. 

Guilt and lack of forgiveness of self and others burdens many people with the heavy weight of inappropriate shame and the destruction of deep-seated resentments.  

In recent years, much has been written about the destructiveness of repressed emotions and particularly anger and resentment in contributing to life-threatening illnesses. 

The belief that feeling any emotions means we are weak is a dreadful legacy to burden people with.  Teaching people that strength means not feeling or denying our feelings is tantamount to creating illness.  Beliefs such as ‘big boys don’t cry’ and ‘good girls don’t get angry’ has resulted in men and women who are unable to get in touch with what they actually feel.  Depression is thought to be caused by anger turned inward and is only one of the symptoms of the need to protect ourselves from the scorn associated with expressing feelings.  Many other illnesses and particularly the addictions are theorized to be expressions of a deep level of emotional pain. 

Why won’t we forgive? 

I believe it starts from our unwillingness to forgive ourselves.  We believe that we are undeserving of love, respect, acceptance, appreciation, and the right to live a life where we walk in peace, joy, harmony, and abundance.  Somewhere along the line, we started to believe that all the rules and regulations of the society in which we live defined who we were supposed to be.  We stopped trusting and believing in our own inherent worth and came to believe that we were ‘not good enough.’  Messages such as ‘you failed,’ or ‘you should’ became a litany for us to abuse ourselves with guilt.  I call it abuse because it is just as painful when we do it to ourselves as when others do it to us.  We became judge and jury and found ourselves guilty of our perceived offences.  When the primary caregivers such as parents, teachers, and other societal influences are unable to love themselves unconditionally, this ‘learned attitude’ is passed on to the next generation as shame to control behavior.   

This sense of shame differs from guilt in that guilt is about behavior.  Shame is deeper and more pervasive.  It is about your being and feelings of inferiority, inadequacy, being bad and unlovable become the conviction underlying your life.  Children grow up believing they are ‘not good enough’ and become the caregivers for the next generation.  And so, it goes, on and on.  I am not blaming the parents and caregivers here as we parent the way we were parented.  My own definition of maturity is that maturity is achieved when we can forgive our parents and other significant adults for being human. 

What Is Self-forgiveness? 

Self-forgiveness is the willingness to believe that you are worthy, that there are no mistakes rather, you are on the planet, or in Earth School (as some people call it) to learn about being human.  The opportunities to learn are just that – not mistakes – just opportunities to learn. 

Practical Steps to Self-forgiveness

1.  Examine how you perceived a certain situation and how you can chose to change your perception. Remember that the thoughts we think create the feelings, and it is our perception that creates our interpretations of the situation. 

2.  Accept yourself and your humanness – you are not supposed to be perfect. 

3.  Admit when you make a mistake. 

4.  Remember that everybody is doing the best they can with what they know, and that includes you. 

5.  Let go of past-future thinking, stay in the ‘Now.’ 

6.  Confront your emotional pain – own your own ‘stuff.’ 

7.  Appreciate the lessons that have contributed to your growth and made you who you are now. 

8.  Say ‘I forgive myself for ____________ (whatever).’

Awakening the Intuition

Due to the strengthening of light within the physical plane, we now have a larger potential to hear Spirit’s voice communicating within our hearts and minds. As a result, even individuals who have strayed far from a spiritual path can now return with greater ease than ever before. All you need is a desire to go back and give time and attention to the voice of inner knowing that you may have been denied previously.

Intuition is the term for this inner understanding. It happens in quiet, in the presence of inspiration that comes from a higher plane, and it is frequently accomplished by asking and waiting. Though certain intuitive perceptions are largely centered on the human level, such as knowing someone so well that we can predict how they will react to something or what they will do, the type of intuition that is referred to as “higher intuition” originates from a different source. It is the voice of understanding that translates messages from the soul’s level of truth, light, and wisdom.

Between human intuition and higher intuition, there doesn’t have to be much of a distinction. Yet, for many, a big gap still exists — a space that makes it more difficult to hear the words being whispered to and from the soul. Mind and heart must be willing to bridge this gap, and there must be at least a beginning of trust in one’s ability to ‘know.’

It is not necessary to teach intuition; rather, it must be permitted. It’s a potential that’s always been dormant within us, waiting for us to awaken it, like a flower awakening to the sun. We can begin with a simple desire to ‘know’ more about truth, light, and wisdom as it relates to our own lives and the lives of those we care about. We might begin to pray for the removal of any impediments to our understanding or awareness of what this reality might be.

When a desire to connect with greater truth is combined with a willingness to receive and pay attention to what has been heard or sensed, the door to inner knowing opens. There are those who ‘know’ things yet refuse to believe what their instincts tell them. They dismiss and invalidate what they feel or believe. This choice begins to close the doors to higher awareness by giving more strength to fear: fear of being wrong, fear of being different, fear of having to modify one’s life in response to what is heard. We need to be willing to hear and know in order to open the doors to intuition and keep them open.

Trust is a difficult concept to grasp because it frequently necessitates a reevaluation of how we have conducted our lives. It’s possible that life has forced us to be more practical, to concentrate on the day-to-day tasks of living and providing for others. It’s also possible that we’ve made mistakes in the past when it comes to deciding someone or what to trust. It’s also possible that we’ve forgotten about our capacity to feel, sense, and be more receptive to life on all levels. Trust entails more than just a desire to accept something from a higher plane of existence. It also necessitates a willingness to trust in our own ability to flow with life and modify what is required.

Many people have a lot of knowledge but are reluctant to admit it since they don’t know where it will lead them. This fear must be released in order to open the way to greater intuition and perceptions of light and truth.

It is especially crucial today, when there are so many major crises confronting us as a collective humanity, and so many choices that can have a tremendous impact on all of humanity, that we restore our ability to know and trust, which leads to intuition. To do otherwise puts us in the hazardous situation of not knowing what or who to believe, and not knowing which path to take in terms of improving the world and alleviating the great suffering that now exists. We live at the mercy of public opinion rather than in the presence of truth because we lack access to our deeper intuitive sense.

It is now critical for us to open to the light that is there in order to engage more completely in the collective life of mankind, as well as in the circumstances of our individual lives, for reasons that are both personal and simply part of being human. It’s time to let our inner senses awaken and transform us into the light-filled beings we are. The moment we live in demands it of us, and our emotions demand it of every one of us so that we might begin to overcome the difficulties and challenges that lie ahead of us.

We can start with a prayer or meditation, then move on to a moment of stillness and emptiness in which we don’t know what we’re doing and wait to be taught; we can prepare ourselves to be vessels of truth and light. The acknowledgment of intuition’s gifts may not happen right away, but it will, and all of existence rejoices when someone who has wandered from the road of knowing their Divine nature returns.

It’s only a reflection?

Have you heard that everyone and everything is a mirror or a reflection for you?

I know that my teachers would tell me this when I first started my own healing journey but what does that mean? What do I do with this? I have questioned this belief many times. I just could not get it or understand it. To me this felt like avoidance of others not taking responsibility for their words or actions and that can still be true.

I have learned to keep asking questions until I get a download or clarity and that is exactly what I have done with this statement. Finally I got an answer and I have already put it into practice and let me tell you this works like magic!

Let’s say that you may find yourself in an argument, disagreement or being triggered emotional by another person. When you step away from this situation you will ask yourself a question. Now after you ask yourself this question I want you to notice what you notice, what did you hear in response? Instantly when you know, when you hear the response the energy shifts! All the walls, the anger, the tears – it all shifts just like magic.

It’s amazing! Okay, here it is! Are you ready?

The magic question you ask yourself when you are triggered is….

WHAT ARE THEY TRYING TO SHOW ME ABOUT ME THAT I CAN NOT SEE?

I am sharing this with you because I want you to use this to help you move past those triggers and lessons and gain the wisdom of what you are actually trying to learn, heal or resolve. It really does work like magic!

What could you hear? You may hear that you don’t love yourself enough or that you don’t think you are worthy or anything along those lines. What do you do now?

I found you don’t have to do anything once you hear the truth whether it’s from creator or your higher self. Maybe it shifts because we become aware or conscious of what we are hiding from ourselves. So far, I have seen that it just shifts without any special program or process.

It all just shifts on its own just like magic!
