How to Work with (and Strengthen) Your Intuition
As long as I’ve been practicing really tuning into my Intuitive abilities, people have remarked about “my” gifts. The truth of the matter is we all have them. Even if you think you don’t, you do. Sometimes, we think we don’t because we feel like we can’t access information about situations, people, and other things because we can’t get a “good read” on them. Most of the time, when I hear this, it’s over situations or people that are close to us. Meaning, we’re trying to access information that’s closely related, or impacting, us. And in that case, it can be difficult. I’ll talk more about this a bit later further down.
But let me ask you? Have you ever had a “gut feeling”? Have you ever had a sense of discomfort around someone or some situation you’ve never met or experienced before and don’t know why? Have you ever thought you’ve maybe seen something move out of the corner of your eye but turn and look and nothing is there? If yes, you’ve most likely picked up information using your intuition
The fact is we are ALL linked to this information – whether you believe it comes from the energy around you, some sort of spiritual beings watching over us, or God or the Universe overall. Every single one of us are energetic beings with a spirit (soul). Even when we deny its existence, our soul continues to be tuned in and connected and our energy is tuned into the world around us. I’d say “beyond us”, but there really is nothing in my experience that exists “beyond us”. From our physical senses? Yes. But truly from us? No.
It’s through this energy, we can connect intuitively and receive information.
There are 8 “clair” (clear) senses. Today, we’ll focus on the 4 main ones that most people are familiar with and how you can develop your own.
Clairvoyance means “clear seeing” – this may be having mental images (like if I asked you to mentally picture an apple) through the actual physically seeing an apple appear in front of you.
Clairaudience means “clear hearing” - hearing voices, noises, frequencies with your physical ears (outside of you) or in your head (a type of inner hearing). It’s like actually hearing a song versus hearing it play in your mind. Both count as clairaudience.
Claircognizance is a “clear knowing”- this is when you know something is true even if you didn’t experience it in the physical sense. You “just know”.
Clairsentience is a “clear feeling”, that gut feeling, or maybe a pain in the body someone else is experiencing, a feeling someone else is having (not just empathy but actually feeling it), and so on.
We tend to have one or two clairs that are stronger than others, but we can develop and access all of them. In other words, you may tend to “just know” things (claircognizant) more than you can see images (clairvoyant).
To understand your own clairs, which one is your strongest, and how to develop them takes practice. Very few of us could jump on that shiny new bike when we were very little and ride. It’s the same as any gift. We have to practice using it, getting more skillful with it, and tuning into it.
Sitting next to me is an object. I’ll reveal what it it further down – no peeking! Using these four clairs, try and think or imagine what it could be. Spend as much time in each area below until you feel pretty sure you either have some answers or not. Don’t rush through this.
What does it look like? Do you get a sense of color? Height? Shape? Is it smooth or jagged or some other texture?
Do you hear anything? Does it make sound? If so, what kind of sound?
Do you just know what it is? Any sense of what it might be?
How about a feeling? How does it feel in your hand or hands? Soft? Smooth? Cold? Hot?
Before I show you, I want you to know this is just practice! There is no being wrong! It could be you were either close, or you may have been picking up on something else. The way to strengthen our intuition is by using it – over and over and over again. There is no “wrong” here!
If you felt you strongly felt something with one sense over the others, that’s your strongest clair. You can develop your others with practice, but this is the one you use most often to pick up intuitively what’s going on around you.
When I work in my Intuitive Guidance sessions, I tend to use all four of these along with the connection I have to the Spirit world as a Medium through the Love and Light of God. I work only in the highest energy for the highest good of all. Always. I’ll help you with this in a future post…it’s a lot to get into here right now.
When we are highly invested in something, whether it be emotionally and/or physically, it can be difficult to read for ourselves. In order to do this work, it requires a certain degree of detachment from anything our minds want to tell us and being in a much more neutral emotional state. It’s not just you – even the most seasoned among us have great difficulty receiving and reading for ourselves. I seek my own intuitive guidance very often from my colleagues – so I don’t want you to feel discouraged if you have difficulty tuning into and interpreting the information for yourself if that happens.
Wishing you many Blessings on your path,
