Trusting Your Intuition
Trusting Your Intuition
by Wendy Kay
When you are walking a path that involves communicating with Spirit, it is extremely important to be able to recognize and trust your intuition. Intuition is that part of you that tells you what to do by giving you a feeling of what is right for you. Intuition will help you to make decisions and can make your life a lot easier. It will tell you when to take advantage of opportunities and when to walk away from situations. It will be able to tell you if the messages that you receive from Spirit through readings, channellings or meditations are accurate and true for you. Intuition gives your life guidance and direction instantly.
Your intuition will tell you in some way that something is either right or wrong for you. That something could be a situation, a decision, or a person. If something is right for you then there will be a sense of inner peace from following the guidance - a feeling that all is exactly the way it should be. This will happen even if it is something that you don't particularly want to do because it will still feel right to you. When intuition is telling you that something is wrong for you, you might feel it as a tightening in your stomach or as a feeling of fear. Some feel it as a sinking feeling. Sometimes, your entire Being just feels the sensation of it's wrong. By developing your abilities, you will increase your awareness and sensitivities and be able to easily distinguish the right feeling from the wrong feeling.
Your Spirit Guides will help you to do develop your intuition. If intuition is telling you that there is something you should be doing and you refuse to do it, it will keep coming back to you usually in the form of mental chatter. For example, if you are supposed to visit a particular web site to acquire some piece of information, you will keep thinking about going to the web site and you will get constant visit the web site reminders. In reality, your Guides are feeding you the necessary thoughts until you follow through. If you keep putting it off, it will become an uncontrollable urge. Sometimes you will feel like you are backed into a corner until you do what needs to be done. Often, one will need to hit rock bottom before making the necessary change.
Guides will also give you tests to help you develop. They will often tell you to do things that are silly and that don't quite feel right and if you don't trust your intuition, you will end up doing it. They will test you in this way repeatedly until you start trusting what you feel. Then, the next time they tell you to do something and it doesn't feel right, you will trust your intuition and say, "no way". This needs to be done so that down the road when the really important decisions come up, you trust your intuition above all else.
Guides will also help you to confront your fears. In order to follow intuition properly, you need to have a healthy grasp of your fears. You need to be able to feel when there is a fear that is healthy and the message is stay way or don't do it. You need to be able to feel when there is a fear based on fear of change or confrontation but still know that whatever it is needs to be done. There is a subtle difference in the energies associated with these two situations. That is why it is important to develop your abilities and raise your vibration so that you can feel the difference between feel the fear and do it anyway and feel the fear and don't do it. As you develop your abilities and raise your vibration, it becomes easier to detect the subtle difference in energy associated with intuition.
You must learn to follow intuition to the exclusion of the influences of family, friend and society. Your life path is unique and what you have to accomplish is unique to you. What one person must do on a life path doesn't mean that you should be following the same path. For example, you can have two similar situations that require different outcomes. In situation one, a daughter "A" must walk away from her family in order to break the bonds of karma. She must be able to ignore the opinions of family, friends and society such as, "love your family", "practice unconditional love", "family comes first above your own happiness" etc. In situation two, daughter "B" must stay with her family and endure suffering in order to break the karmic bond. She must sacrifice herself for her family and give up her happiness for the happiness of others. Here are two similar living situations with different karmic issues. The only one who knows whether they have to stay or leave is the person living in the situation and that is why it is important for each person to follow their intuition completely so that they fulfill their life's purpose. If these two daughters were to meet on the street and discuss their situations, "A" would be saying that "B" should walk away and leave and "B" would be telling "A" to stay. Each person's truth is unique and needs to be respected.
If you can learn to listen to your intuition and follow it, your life path will become easier. The hard lessons that we all seem to go through will disappear and life will just be day-to-day living. If you don't follow your intuition and go against the flow, the lessons will be harder and take longer to complete.
