Navigating this life can sometimes feel like moving through quicksand or driving in the dark without a map. There is so much input and nuance coming at us through every interaction. Our nervous systems have actually energetically expanded outwards as our electronic world grows.
It’s like the tendrils of our auras are tentatively extending to receive all of these texts, emails and Internet info. A lighthearted voice, downcast eyes, a wry grin, the first person who touches…we have so many cues coming to us from all angles. And yet, the most important piece of knowledge in all of this is our own voice.
Your intuition. The voice of your higher self. Your gut. Your personal road map. Your destiny. The director of your karmic curriculum.
How can you tap in and get more acquainted with this sweet guidance? The first step is clearing the mental clutter. We have to turn down the volume on everything that is not our voice.
Intuition is defined as the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning. It’s not all about logic. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.
**Energetic experiment: Try this one on for size. The next time you are in a stressful environment with multiple people (your workplace, the subway, a long line, fighting traffic, a family dinner), imagine all of you as spirit beings rather than annoying obstacles. Sounds weird but give it a try. Attach a pair of wings to everyone in your office and see how that changes your experience. We are all made of love.**
We have forgotten that we have super powers. Our senses are highly attuned to deliver precious information to give us that strong gut feeling. Our information processors are just a bit clogged up by the excess stuff we receive in this high performance age.
It isn’t simple at first to distinguish your truth from the other little voices of fear, insecurity, the wounded child, self-protection, or defense mechanisms. The more you are able to sort out your highest self voice, the more pure guidance you can receive. This is the voice of clarity, the voice of your deepest desires.
Some of my favorite ways to begin to cultivate receptivity to that voice are:
When you wake up in the morning, ask for divine guidance. These questions from A Course in Miracles are simple, directive and highly valuable if you are able to listen to the answers. Ask yourself “Where would you have me go? What would you have me do? What would you have me say and to whom?” Done. Ask and then just listen.
This juicy prayer from Tosha Silver is exquisite. You can replace ‘Divine Beloved’ with any spiritual guide that resonates with you.
Change me Divine Beloved into One who easily relaxes and allows change to arrive at the right time. Let me open and invite Your perfect plan. The Divinely selected solutions to all perceived problems are already in motion and I happily receive them.
You are my Supreme Source for all.
Let all that wants to go, go.
Let all the wants to come, come.
I am Yours.
Yours is mine.
We are One.
All is well.
3. CUT OUT YOUR SCREEN TIME
One of the biggest blocks to our intuition is our constant connection to our electronics. Imagine how much more available we would be to receive truth and high level information if we could put our phones down/turn our TV’s off/pry ourselves away from FB/IG/Pinterest? Electronic vacations are essential to our soul. We often use these devices to relax or ‘veg out’ but they become huge buffers for accessing our internal compass. We need focused quiet time to hear what we really need.
I hope you enjoy and use these tips. Let me know which one is your favorite!
