I am an intuitive reader and healer. Many people have asked me how that works for me and when did I know I had this gift? I tell people that I have had it all of my life, but as a child the strength of my gift scared me, and having no support or guidance as to what to do with it, I learned to ignore it for the most part or push it away. Only as an adult was I able to allow myself to accept that part of me and use it to help myself and eventually help others. I rely on my intuition a great deal to help guide me and give me information about people and situations. Sometimes that scares people as they think I can read their mind or see into the future. I assure you I cannot. If I could do that, I would have looked for the winning lotto numbers long ago!
Intuition is not a mystical or magical thing. It is something that everyone carries with them, but so many people are frightened by their own voice, often times because they never had a voice growing up, so they were taught on so many levels that they should not be heard, not even by themselves.
What sort of effect does not having a voice cause in your adult life? Well, it can show itself in various ways such as the type of person who can never stop talking. Wait…what?? Yes, because a person, who never had a voice as a child, realizes as an adult that they do have an outer voice, and they want to use it all the time, so they never stop! Chatter, chatter all the time, never allowing anyone else to get a word in edgewise, or worst of all never allowing themselves to hear their own inner voice.
Another example is someone who is so quiet; when they do speak you are not even sure you can hear them say anything. Again, they don’t trust their voice, or that anyone will want to hear them so they speak very quietly. Sometimes a person who is so hard on themselves, they will stutter and stammer, gasping for words and air as they struggle to speak.
What do all these people have in common? They struggle with feeling like they are not heard, even as adults, they have allowed that early “training” to convince them, that they are not worth hearing. It has gone so far that they dare not begin to listen to their inner voice either.
What is this voice I speak of? What is Intuition? Intuition is not a voice of fear of something that poses no danger to you. It is the voice that protects you from danger, or circumstances that will not benefit you in the long term.
Women especially have learned to ignore their inner voice that is screaming to them. In relationships, in social settings, with strangers who seem nice and stop to ask for directions or offer assistance, that little voice is often ignored. LISTEN TO YOUR INTUITION. IT CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE! What do I mean save your life? Save you dear reader on so many levels! Yes from obvious dangers such as predators or theft, but dangers of the spirit too.
An example of this would be to continue to stay in a relationship with someone who is a lovely person, but you are just not a great match for each other. Every day that you try to force a relationship to work between two people who should just not be together, is another day where you allow a little bit of yourself to die. You are doing a disservice to yourself and to the person you are with by not listening to what your inner voice is telling you. This applies to both men and women.
If your intuition is screaming to you, about anything, please listen to it. I am not writing this to instill fear and terror into anyone. I don’t want you to go around in your life and be afraid of everyone and everything. The goal is not to lock yourself away so no one can hurt you; the goal is to listen to your little voice called intuition so that you can begin to have faith in yourself. You have more power than you can imagine. You have more strength than you can imagine. You are not a physical being struggling to be spiritual, you are a spiritual being trapped in a physical body.
