As spiritual beings having a human experience, we are all born with the gift of intuition; it is our birthright. As babies and young children, we are accepting of our intuitive abilities, recognizing our “sixth sense” to be just as common and matter of fact as our five physical senses. It isn’t until we start to grow up and out of our soul, knowing and identifying more with this world and our mind-thinking, that we lose touch with this innate power.
For many of us, returning to this state is simply a matter of unlearning these limiting mind thoughts and beliefs around our intuitive abilities. We must come back into our higher self’s knowing that we have access to divine knowing and insight at all times. While only some of us are able to be psychic and intuitively dialed in for others, such as myself, ALL OF US have the potential to do so for ourselves. No one is more connected to you, your higher guidance and spirits than you are!
What I have found over the years in cultivating and strengthening my own intuitive abilities, is that I’ve had to constantly address my head/heart conflict. Often times what my head is telling me conflicts with what my heart feels to be true. I used to struggle with which one to listen to and obey. Every time I followed my head, it got me into trouble or made things a lot harder than they needed to be. Whenever I listened to and honored the guidance in my heart and soul, however, I was validated with answers, solutions, and outcomes that unfolded with grace and ease. It doesn’t mean the path was always easy or care-free, but it always resulted in me becoming wiser, stronger, and braver as a result of having followed my heart.
My Spirit Guides have taught me that what it really comes down to is getting out of our heads and into our hearts. Our “monkey minds,” as the Buddhist refer to it, create endless thoughts, opinions and judgments that often times are based in fear and come from our egos. This cuts us off from our intuitive guidance and knowing, which is based in truth and love.
The heart’s guidance, on the other hand, is simple, direct, and there’s no need for a lot of words. Our feelings are our best guidance, which stem from our heart center.
A simple way to put it is this: the mind projects, while the heart directs. With that in mind, make it a point to retrain your brain into letting go of any and all fear-based thinking, surrendering these lower self thoughts to God and your Guides. Then, simply tune into your heart, checking in with your feelings, and paying attention to what these emotions are telling you in the moment. As you honor and follow the guidance in your heart, you will feel empowered and connected to a higher energy directing and acting as a guiding light in your life. You will walk in wholeness and complete alignment with your highest potential and highest guidance, thus creating endless opportunities to live and be your highest and best self!
