As a professional psychic, many of my clients and students ask me, how do you know that your insight is guided by your intuition? Or is it just a figment of your imagination, wishes, or hopes?
Your intuition is speaking to you all the time, in the background of your awareness like a white noise. To become conscious of it, you have to pay attention to it. Noticing is half the battle.
Here are some clues. Intuition does not usually come about through a long, drawn out, left-brained, analytical thought process. It is relatively quick. It comes through a word, a voice, a color, an image, a feeling, and even at times, a smell. It is subtle and you must be open to noticing it. Once you have noticed, you must trust all of the information attached to your insight. It is like downloading a computer file that you must unzip, feel into. Then, you must let go of your ego. You have to let go of what you want it to mean. You have to let go of what your brain thinks it to mean. It does not normally require endless rumination or interpretation. Put down your symbol book. And really, really, LISTEN.
You can create a “trust bubble” around a specific circumstance where you vow to trust absolutely every tidbit and morsel of guidance you receive. Let’s say you have an issue you need to sort out. You start with a meditation, clearing your mind, body, and spirit. Then you ask your question. Wait for an answer, accept whatever form it comes in, and what you are receiving. Make an agreement that you will listen to, and trust, whatever comes up. Then stop ruminating and allowing your ego to get in the way. Accept what is given, trust what is given.
The third step is to ACT. What good is it if you receive a gift then keep it hidden in a closet? You must trust enough to act on it. If it says something isn’t right with a person or situation, trust that, and act by becoming more observant and by taking the steps to find out what this “not right” feeling is about. Doing so in many instances could literally save your life. Intuition comes from a higher Source, a higher perspective—one that is not just “Me, Me,Me.” It will give you the bigger picture, much like stepping back from an image on a canvas allows you to see what is really there, rather than getting out your microscope and examining the brushstrokes.
Call that Source God, the Universe, the Light, the Good, Love…whatever you call it means less than if you listen to it or not. Trust that you are connected—Listen, Trust, and Act.
