I’m feeling pretty excited today as I’ve been going through the intuitive impressions posted by the community in the Be Open Practice group and I’ve been having the time of my life! (You can join in at any time by the way!)
It’s so cool to watch people open to the realization of how psychic they are. It’s probably one of the best things about my job actually! And, for me to be in a position where I get to help cultivate that within a group of people? My favorite!!
But one person in the group was feeling a little down and unsure of herself – and the comment she made in the practice group really got me thinking.
She said something like, “Well, I don’t feel like I did very well on this exercise. It feels like I’m just making it all up.”
And THAT is the thing about all this trusting your gut, intuitive, opening to your psychic abilities stuff.
It DOES feel like you’re making it all up.
It DOES feel like you have nothing concrete to go on.
It DOES feel like you’re just running with your imagination.
It DOES feel like you’re just indulging your creativity.
I can’t tell you how often I’m working with a client or I’m presenting to a group of 50… 100 people, or I’m doing a webinar with 600 people where, in my head I’m saying, “Yeah, I’m crazy for saying this stuff!”
I question myself because, really, I have nothing to base what I’m saying on, other than the random stuff within me. No actual data points. No one confirming it for me. Just this little twinge within that brings me to whatever my point in that moment is.
And in most cases, it turns out that I am right – and it was a good thing that I just went with it, because it ended up helping someone in some way.
Which means that if, even after seventeen years of doing this intuitive stuff, I still have lots of moments where I feel like I’m making it up, one of your goals in opening your intuition should NOT be to feel 100% confident.
Who ever feels 100% confident in what they say, feel, do anyway?
The difference is that, I’ve learned to trust. I just trust that whatever I’m doing/saying/feeling in that moment is exactly what it is supposed to be. Even if I get it “wrong.”
In this day and age, no one is going to behead us or oust us from the village for indulging in our intuitive sides, which gives all the wiggle room we want.
Yes, as you indulge you may feel like you’re being overly imaginative or you’re just super creative, but as you explore that, you’ll see that what springs out of those things is your intuition.
I’d love to hear how you’ve trusted yourself and overcome your fears – even how, perhaps, you’re still working on that!
Love & Light,
