Remember when I
slid to the woo woo side explored spiritual intuitives?
The call remains the best 30 minutes I’ve spent in a while and something which sparked me to pause/step back and scrutinize my life for signs of spiritual guides/of her words coming true.
I adored the experience.
And yet, as weeks passed and my much-discussed second child failed to materialize, I begin to develop a layer of resistance.
resistance Carla = fearbased Carla
I had an emerging sense of disbelief about her intuitive powers– the very name of which made clear from the START her information would arrive without proof or conscious reasoning.
I reminded myself my favorite aspect of the intuitive-call had not been the information or guidance provided. It had been the fact she repeatedly informed me I didn’t need her at all.
I possessed my own intuition.
Live in the moment.
Precisely the same as living intuitively, I knew tapping into my intuition would work best if my mind was wholly focused on the present. When we linger too long in the rearview mirror we allow pain from the pasts to cloud our minds. As a result, our futures quickly transform from exciting to terrifying. We obsess. How will the choice we are about to make impact our tomorrow? Our next year? It’s in these moments (the ones we choose not to fully embrace) our intuition sends clear and unmistakable messages. It’s in these same moments we lose our ability to receive the messages/information if we’re existing in the future (anxiety) or the past (depression).
Meditation is something I’ve done every damn morning for years and still have no idea if I’m doing it
right the way everyone else does! My only goal with these meditative moments is to create for myself a sense of relaxed awareness. I make the choice to start each day entirely tapped into my mental state yet concurrently releasing all distractions. As I build my intuition muscle I hope to achieve this state during meditation and better maintain/reconnect with this same feeling throughout my day.
When the intuitive ‘spoke to my spiritual guides’ she clarified I could tap into this same dialog any time I desired. In order to overcome my resistance I need to have the ability to quiet my mind and find a place of stillness/awareness when when NOT on my meditation pillow.
Practice caution with self-talk.
I recently attended a Jen Sincero You’re a Badass presentation. Sincero’s focus centered around women and our relationship with money. Money is complicated for all humans and, Sincero asserted, even more layered with conflict for women. We want it. We feel guilty/embarrassed about desiring it. We give lip-service to seeking more of it, while subconsciously we believe we don’t deserve it.
Prior to hearing Sincero speak I’d have claimed rock star status with regards to money confidence.
I’d have shared how I loved $money$ for what could do for me (from covering necessities to sharing with others) and had zero hesitation around the fact I worked my ass off and ‘deserved’ all I possessed.
Prior to hearing Sincero speak I’d have believed myself a rock star around the idea of positive self-talk.
I’d have been wrong on both accounts 100% due to the language I used for my internal monologue.
My mantra may have been: I don’t need lots of money. I don’t require much to be happy.
The universe only heard: I don’t need money.
To my mind my mantra reinforced the notion I already had enough and reminded anything ‘extra’ was abundance which would neither add to nor take away from my current joy.
My mantra consistently backfired as the universe interpreted my thoughts as saying I don’t need money. A statement which, on the most basic level, was patently untrue.
My internal dialogue cried out for strengthening and overhaul.
The messages from my intuition are growing stronger.
The more I’ve consciously focused on the exercises above the louder my intuitive voice has become.
In the same fashion I studied the art of foreshadowing in college, I’ve grown better able to identify serendipitous coincidences (which aren’t really that), harness the power of my ‘funny feelings,’ and allow my ‘hunches’ to offer me guidance.
As with all things it’s a daily process, yet I’m already far more aware of/tapped into the power of what Id have previously dismissed as a fluke.
I’m choosing to hold a megaphone to my inner voice and not silence it believing it’s not rooted enough in fact.
- Do you harness the power of intuition and allow it to guide your life?
- Have you worked on strengthening your intuitive power?
