Intuition: Beginning Steps
The next step after we do some healing and self-reflection is to explore and understand our intuition.
After we acknowledge that we have this incredible internal GPS we can then begin working on learning all about our psychic abilities. We can’t control, develop and perfect our intuition skills if we deny they exist. Most people have had psychic experiences that they feel cannot be explained. I imagine that is why you are reading this post. I will tell you that I believe everyone is psychic. It is just a matter of if you are wanting to tap into and use this wonderful gift. It doesn’t mean you need to rent a table and start doing readings but why wouldn’t you use this internal GPS for your daily benefit and guidance?
Here are five beginning steps for your learning journey and your homework for the week:
Get a journal. Something you can document and write all your experiences and thoughts down in. Not only is this a great outlet it will serve as a wonderful reference when you look back on your learning journey. If you are worried about people reading it put it in a safe hiding place. I even know someone who bought a tiny safe to lock hers inside.
Write down your past most prominent psychic experiences. This will allow you to review them from a new perspective.
What are your dominant psychic abilities? Write down if you a) knew things before they happened, b) heard things or c) consistently have seen things.
If you are comfortable with your psychic abilities you may already use them to help make decisions. If you are new to using your intuition or understanding it, you may push it away or close it down. If you have been closing your intuition down it may start to manifest itself as anxiety or panic attacks. Identifying your skills and abilities will allow you to have control and decide on what experiences you’d like in your life, rather than letting it control you or bubble up in the form of anxiety or panic attacks.
Stop hanging out with negative people. Surround yourself with like-minded people who lift you up, rather than drag you down. Negative people don’t want you to succeed and suck the good energy out of you. Getting in touch with your psychic abilities is empowering, enlightening and a process where you get to create your reality. Surrounding yourself with positive people helps you grow and celebrate your bright light.
Create a mediation practice. This helps you be mindful and stay present. Meditation and mindfulness go hand in hand, keeping you focused and raising your vibration. Meditation will also help you start making more empowered choices that will bring you more of what you want and peace of mind.
Meditation doesn’t have to be about sitting still and trying to empty your mind. There are lots of other ways to meditate. I have a hard time sitting still so I practice mindful-walking. Other examples are crafting, painting or listening to guided meditations. Find a way to meditate that is fun for you and fits with your personality. It will help you stick with it.
These are some fantastic foundations to start your journey with. I've also included a mantra you can recite. SLC Health states, "A mantra is traditionally a short sound, word or even phrase spoken in Sanskrit and used for meditation purposes. It’s uttered in repetition to help keep our mind and body focused on the moment. But in our modern day and age, the term “mantra” has been co-opted to include self-affirming statements that give us the strength and confidence to face the world. But the underlying purpose is still the same: It’s a way to focus our intentions and calm our minds." When you use crystals and gemstones in the process, their frequencies help to magnify those thoughts and intentions.
Your mantra is: I call upon the tools naturally offered to me.
Your crystal is: Clear quartz is the most popular and versatile healing stone of all the crystals. It is the most powerful healing stone thought to be able to work on any condition. It is known as the stone of power and amplifies any energy or intention. It is said to protects against negativity, connecting you to your higher self.
Enjoy this new exploration. Welcome it with wonder and patience. Remember this is a journey not a race. Shine brightly and celebrate each other's lights.
