In the last couple weeks I have noticed several people on television said, “I have to follow my gut,” or “my intuition tells me,” or something similar. Having worked as a counselor, intuitive coach and psychic medium for many years, this delights me.
Whenever I teach classes what happens is that my students (in a safe environment) begin to remember how intuitive they were as children and share with the group. We are all intuitive! What happens is parents who abandoned their own intuition stop their children from talking about their experiences. The child learns to shut it down. If they don’t give up their intuition as a result of their parents, their peers tease them and eventually this natural gift goes dormant.
In session with clients for the last 30 years, over and over again I see the same pattern. A client comes to me leaving a marriage or a relationship. I ask, “when did you know this was not the right person for you?” The answer sadly is “the day we met” or “the day we married.” This is the same with jobs and buying homes or moving to a new city.
What happened is that their intuition was clear but they did what I call “intellectual over-ride.” They let their ego get involved and didn’t listen to their own truth. They began to doubt themselves.
This is why I wrote the book Live Intuitively: Journal the Wisdom of your Soul. For years I have been creating Soul Stems ™ which are writing prompts to help clients get clear on their own truth. In the book I also teach you to create an image that represents the issue at hand. Then you use a Soul Stem to understand the image. Symbolism is such a powerful tool as I am sure you know from your dreams.
Whether you want to do some inner work or to free up your intuition to write that book you have been putting off, Live Intuitively will be a great start!
