3 Ways to Tune into Your Intuition

Have you ever had a feeling that seemed totally crazy and made no sense, only later to find out that you should have followed that feeling?  This has happened to me many times, I get a gut feeling about something like take a sweater to the restaurant but my rational self kicks in and tells me that’s crazy it’s 100 degrees outside, only to regret later that I didn’t listen to my self and bring a sweater because it’s freezing inside the restaurant.

I think most of us have had an awareness of our inner knowing, our intuition, a time when we had a feeling in our gut and we just knew something without knowing how we knew it, but we rationalized it and questioned it and later regretted that we didn’t follow it.

Your intuition is your inner compass, it’s your own magical north star, and it always wants to guide you for your highest good.  Unfortunately we’re not taught to listen to our own self, we’re taught to seek advise and listen to outside influences.

If you want your life to flow more easily than it’s time to get tuned into your intuition.

Here are 3 ways to get started:

Tune into your body, when you get that feeling stop and pay attention to it.  Mostly it’s a gut feeling, a knowing that you get.  If the sun is shining but your gut is telling you to take an umbrella with you,  take it.

Sonia Choquette who is a world renowned six sensory spiritual teacher, says that the best way to begin is to “get a small pocket notebook that you can carry with you at all times.  Every time you get a hunch, gut feeling “AHA!” moment…jot it down in your notebook.  Don’t let your ego censor, judge, discriminate or in any way edit the information or feelings you receive.  Don’t worry if your vibes feel silly, irrelevant, irrational, or stupid; or if you think that what you feel is nothing more than your imagination.  Write it all down anyway.  Your mind will see that every vibe you have makes sense in one way or another over time.”

Trust – when you get that mystical feeling about something, trust it, even if it makes no sense in that moment.  Follow your inner feeling.  And by the way trusting yourself will build up your self-confidence.

Your intuition is not loud, it’s subtle, it nudges you quietly, it warns you when you’re in danger, it guides you to what is best for you.  It’s a knowing that you get that cannot be explained, you just know things.  While the gardner was here last week I had a gut feeling that the new guy helping him messed up the sprinklers, I knew this before I had solid proof.

It’s important to bear in mind that there are other energies working within you, for example there’s your rational mind and your ego so learn to distinguish between those and your intuition. The more you become aware of and follow the urgings of your intuition,  the more connected you’ll be with your inner knowing, and following your inner knowing is showing up for yourself.  The more you show up the greater your life becomes.

I’d love to hear your thoughts, feel free to leave a comment.

The Universe is Always Responding to Us and Guiding Us

We live in a glorious Universe that is always communicating with us and is always giving us what we ask for.  The thing is that we’re not always aware of this, and whether we know this consciously or not, the Universe is always responding to us.  When we keep ourselves open, believe, have faith in that it will be given to us, and know without a doubt that what we ask for will appear – we will see it.   For me, I don’t always see what is right in front of me (LOL) that’s why when I ask for something, I always ask that the Universe make it so clear that there’ll no mistaking that this is the answer.

I’ve been asking for a book that will open my heart and yesterday while looking at Five Minute Friday on Instagram, an online writing community that I like to follow, I noticed this book on their page that attracted me, so I immediately went to Amazon to check it out.  When I hit enter, the second that it came up, my entire body started to tingle.  That’s not something you can make yourself feel.   And not just a slight tingling, and not just on my left side, where I’ve experienced it before,  but this was a tingling that was in my entire body and it was so strong that there was no way I could miss it.  I stopped what I was doing, closed my eyes, and just sat with this vibration that was electrifying in me.

There is no  doubt in my mind that the Universe guided me to this book, I didn’t even need to read the excerpt to know that there’s something magical and special here and I need to read.

Have you had an experience that was so obvious to you that you couldn’t ignore it?  Please feel free to share, I’d love to know.

A Message of Hope from the Universe

I was looking through Instagram last week, not really paying any particular attention to anything, I’m still recovering from the surgery and my concentration right now is very minimal, when suddenly these words just jumped out at me and struck me – this too shall pass – Oh WOW!!! I turned off my phone and  I quickly wrote them down so i don’t forget them.  I sat there holding them inside of me, allowing them to linger taking in their meaning and their magick.

pass4

These words were exactly what I needed.  I’ve been so caught up in the web of this recovery, that I’m not seeing the light.  Mostly I have no energy and I’m dragging through the days.  In my last blog post (here) I wrote about being deliriously happy because I can drive myself now, and I am but, I’m far from recovered.  This recovery is not a walk in the park, I’m not back to my normal self and I haven’t been able to get back into my daily routine, into a rhythm that supports and uplifts my life every day.  I know it will take time but I wasn’t remembering this when those words screamed out at me.

When we’re going through a rough patch, no matter what it is, a divorce, a recovery, an emotional time, we don’t remember that things will get better, that we will get through this, that we will be ok.  It’s hard to see an end, it’s hard to envision light when in the dark.  But, the truth is that whatever we’re going through, is not going to last forever, it will get better.  We live in a universe that is always changing and moving and so are we, that’s just how it is.  And regardless of anything, as this amazing Universe reminded me, the truth is that no matter what –

this too shall pass.

I’m carrying these words with me, empowered and hopeful with the knowing that I’ll be ok and I’m hoping that it brings you comfort as it does for me – knowing that whatever you’re going through is not forever and will pass.

Journal Entry – Divine Feminine

These are the words that came to me today when I saw the word “Feminine” for today’s prompt for the May Magick 2019 that I’m participating in.

I didn’t always see myself as feminine and having worth and being special.

I didn’t always honor myself, love myself, create sacred space for me.  I didn’t know about angels and spirit guides and animal spirits, faeries and Gaia.  Or, ritual and prayer.  And I didn’t know about Her.  I didn’t know about the Divine Feminine.

rose2I didn’t know that I can ask for myself, and that it’s ok to receive, give myself permission, and forgive myself.  That I don’t have to feel guilty, or make myself small to let others feel good about themselves.  I didn’t always know that I don’t have to carry shame around with me like a suit of armor, or live from a place of fear.  And I didn’t know that I don’t have to hide myself away, I didn’t always know that there is another way, that I’m allowed to think a different way or that the universe is not against me.

I wasn’t always proud of who I am.  The truth is that I didn’t know who I am.

I didn’t know my own feminine worth, my own beauty, my own desires.  I didn’t have dreams, I didn’t know I was creative, and loving, that I had wisdom and beauty and joy all inside of me just waiting for me to wake up to my own self and unearth out my hidden treasures.

I didn’t always know that I am Divine Mother incarnate.  That She is in me, as me, and through me.  She is me and I am Her.

I didn’t know – I am all that – Divine Feminine!

Reminder-Your Angels are Always With You

When you’re in pain, when you know that you have a heavy long road ahead of you towards your recovery.  When you’re inside that place, when even without wanting to, you fall into that place of depression and despair, it’s easy to forget all that you know about healing, about visualizing, about calling on your angels to help you…

angels

And then, the universe totally surprises you and out of the blue while you’re at the therapy center you look down, and there on the floor amidst weights right in front of you, there on the floor, is a tiny feather, (how did this feather even get in here?) a wink from the universe letting you know it’ll be alright, and you remember what you know to be true – call on us your angels for love, protection, light, guidance, and healing.  You smile inside your heart and you know you’ll be alright.  And you say, thank you for reminding me that you’re always here with me –  Thank you, I love you, love you, love you.

Angel Blessings
