Entrepreneurs Intuition Questions Answered
& Opening the Powered by Intuition Mailbag!
Do you consider yourself an “intuitive entrepreneur?”
An intuitive entrepreneur isn’t necessarily someone who is in the business of intuition. An intuitive entrepreneur is a business owner who values their business intuition as a sense that can steer them in the right direction in their life and business.
I received a wonderful question from one such “intuitive entrepreneur.”
Question About Letting Go of a Client and Financial Security:
There’s a client I’ve had for nearly 5 years. She is on monthly retainer. For the past few months I’ve been wanting to not renew her contract. But I keep doing it because it’s regular income. BUT “something” was nagging me that I should not work with her anymore. Well, I saw her true colors recently. It was sad. I expected better from her. I ended up canceling her renewal afterwards. But I think if I had done it sooner I would have avoided the whole mess. If I had just paid attention to my intuition maybe we could have parted ways on a friendlier note. Would love to know how you avoid doubting your intuition when in this type of situation where trusting your intuition would affect your financial security. Financial security is a huge deal for entrepreneurs like me. –V. Koral
You need to listen to your gut and inner stirrings when they come up.
It’s your intuition saying you two are not a match for a mentor and mentee relationship.
I’m sure had you addressed it sooner you would have avoided the unpleasantness of what happened too.
I always think the best policy is honesty….to a degree that you don’t “hurt/wound the other person’s feelings” of course. Be gracious, kind and compassionate at all times – which I am sure you are.
Think of a way you can “let go of a client” that is not a good match for you that serves them and is for the highest good of both of you.
Should this ever come up again you might want to say that you think they would be better served by another coach because you want them to get the most from their coaching experience and you don’t feel you’re the right coach for them. You feel they need a different style than you can provide so in order to allow the Universe to bring them the right coach you want to get out of their way.
By the way, not everyone is a good match for you just because they are willing to pay you. You have to be aligned on the inside with your clients. This is a huge learning experience for you. Consider yourself lucky as you will not make the same mistake again. Now you know exactly how to identify when your intuition is trying to communicate with you and can use this knowledge in the future. That’s huge! To cement it in go back and review what you were feeling and what thoughts were running through your mind while this was happening. I would also include the “nagging feelings” you were getting to let her go as well. Doing so will create an intuitive benchmark for you to use that clearly and accurately points the way in your decision-making process that you can use from now on.
I understand about the need for financial security. Always know that when you make “space” for a new client that is exactly right for you – and create the intention – by telling the Universe what you want instead – you will get it.
When we hold onto paying clients for the financial security we are telling the Universe it doesn’t matter if the client is a match for us or not. And we will keep getting clients who “push our buttons.”
If you must let a client go again, (hopefully this won’t happen) tell the Universe precisely what kind of client you want instead….describe them in great detail. For example you might tell the Universe you want a client who is “coachable”
and open to being guided to the transformation you provide. After describing what you do want release the client who is not a match by saying, “For the highest good of this client and for me I let them go so they find the right coach to work with who will lead them to the success they desire and deserve. Please fill in this time slot with a new client that I will love serving at the highest level.”
I hope this helps.

It’s time to open the Powered by Intuition mailbag to answer readers’ questions about intuition.
I love to hear from readers. They ask the best questions. And, I know if one person asks me something there are countless others who have the same questions who will benefit from the answer.
So here are some answers to readers questions on intuition:
Question 1. I was doing some research and came across your article, “13 Signs You May Be a Medium.” I’ve experienced 9 out of the 13 signs you mentioned. I’m constantly seeing images in my head even with my eyes open. I see clips of random peoples lives sort of like a short film. My mom passed away last year and I knew she was going to pass away weeks before it happened. I have had an out of body experience that scared me to death!
Sometimes I’ll go to, for example, a “please touch” museum. I will reach out to touch an item and a electrical rush or tingle soars through me numbing my entire body and sort of blacking me out. Also people drain me I’m always told that I give great advice so they all bring their problems. The thing is I have very bad anxiety and am taking on others energy positive or negative. I would love to control and better understand my ability so I can live a more relaxed life. Please help!
Answer:If you are seeing images in your mind’s eye you are a clairvoyant. Seeing snippets of people’s lives as if watching a short scene from a movie is exactly what it feels like.
I’m so sorry about the loss of your mother. It’s so difficult to lose a parent no matter how old you are.
All your psychic channels are opening. I used to have many spontaneous out of body experiences when I first started developing too. It’s a common signal that you are ready to begin training in this area.
If you touch things and get impressions about them then you are definitely a medium. This is called “psychometry” and it is a method for getting information about the deceased or, previous owner of the item.
Most psychics and mediums (not all) are very compassionate and truly want to help others so they tend to be old souls who can give good advice to others. You definitely fall into this category.
If you have anxiety from taking on other peoples problems and energy you need to learn to protect yourself. I wrote about this in my book: The Intuition Answer Book.
I have a lot good protection exercises in there that you can do.
Question 2 .I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’m empathic and I’ve learned so much about it. I’ve been able to be centered and present with your Intuition Principle meditation series and your book, The Intuition Principle; thanks so much for your work!
My question is this: Sometimes I will be just watching a movie or doing something as mundane as washing dishes and all of a sudden, I find myself getting very cold with goose bumps, or my scalp will just start to tingle.
Both sensations last for a few minutes and are hard to ignore. At those moments, my mind is preoccupied with the tasks at hand. What is going on? If anything? I mean, I can explain away breezes, air conditioning, etc. In the absence of a scientific reason, I’m convinced that this is my intuition or higher self trying to tell me something. Do you have any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance for your help. I’m sure you get a lot of messages and questions. Thanks again for reading mine
Yes, you are absolutely right about what is happening to you. You are experiencing a moment when you blend with the ALL or Spirit. You are feeling what is called the “cool breeze” of the Holy Spirit and your 7th chakra is opened and merging with this higher vibration. That is where the tingling on the top of the head comes from. If you’ve ever seen a painting of a saint with a halo – it depicts the opened 7th Chakra and union with the divine. If you put your hand over your crown chakra the next time this happens to you – you will be able to feel the energy and coolness.
I wrote a post about this experience – I’ll give you the link here so you can read more about it:http://www.poweredbyintuition.com/2011/03/02/the-miracle-of-sahaja-yoga-meditation/
Question 3. I know that I am an intuitive person because it has been proven to me by others not listening to me when I have a bad feeling or vision and advised them against doing something. My problem is that, for some reason, when it comes to me my intuition is backwards or off.
If I feel I should choose “Choice A,” I better choose “Choice B” because what my gut says is wrong! Also when something is supposed to happen and I am positive about it, it ends up not happening?? Am I channeling my energy wrong?? I don’t understand how I could save people from accidents and other calamities but for the life of me can’t save myself.
You have just asked the age-old question most intuitives ask: “Why can’t I predict accurately for myself like I do for others?”
When we have a gut feeling or a precognition about something pertaining to someone else we are “removed” from their situation. In other words we can be “objective” and not emotionally involved or attached to the outcome like we are when we are trying to get information for ourselves.
When it comes to predicting or asking for guidance for ourselves we doubt and start to wonder whether it out imagination or real. We also know which outcome we prefer so we wonder whether it is our intuition or our wishful thinking.
This take practice, learning by making mistakes and building up confidence in our intuitive skills.
It won’t happen over night and there will still be times when you will still be wrong about yourself – that is the nature of being human. So don’t be so hard on yourself.
That is why when I cannot figure something out for myself I go to another medium or look for signs to validate my decision. I wrote about how to read the signs in my book, “Navigating by Intuition.” Using signs is a great way to alleviate doubt and get confirmation of your intuitive hunches.

Today I am sharing a few of the many interesting questions I get from readers.
Question 1: One reader asks, “What is the difference between clairvoyance and intuition?”
Clairvoyance is the ability to receive information about people, places and things via “seeing pictures in the mind’s eye,” which cannot be seen with the physical eyes. Clairvoyance is a way of receiving information from outside of yourself. It is information that you do not currently have stored in the many files of your physical brain.
Intuition is your own inner wisdom. It is a function of instinct and it is communicated to you via a reaction in the body – a feeling you get.
Clairvoyance is a psychic ability. Information obtained psychically is obtained from outside of yourself.
Your intuition will inform you of information vital to your own well being, success, happiness and survival. Intuitive information comes to you in the form of “gut feelings” in the body. When you “feel” something isn’t right or if you have a sinking feeling in your stomach over something you might be contemplating doing this is an intuitive reaction. The information is “encoded” within your body’s reaction.
Everyone is psychic to an extent. Numerous studies replicated by various scientists show that we are capable of having an emotional reaction to situations before they have occurred. Study participants were shown random photos of either tranquil scenes or disturbing ones designed to evoke an emotional reaction. The participants were hooked up to monitors that measured changes in “skin conductance, heart rate and blood pressure.”*
What the studies showed was that prior to seeing these randomly selected photos the participants body reacted in anticipation of seeing the agitating photos according to the changes measured in their skin, heart rate and blood pressure. So, at some level the participants “knew” which photo they were going to be shown before it was flashed up on the screen.
Question 2: Another reader asks, “A friend of mine decided against going to church with me and within days suffered a horrific accident that left him disabled. He was sorry afterward but, it was too late. Is this intuition or “word of knowledge,” as in Christian circles?”
I had to look up what “word of knowledge was.” Here’s the definition from Wikipedia:
Among Pentecostal and charismatic Christians, the word of knowledge is often defined as the ability of one person to know what God is currently doing or intends to do in the life of another person.
“Word of knowledge” sounds similar to psychic ability according to this definition but, I’m not an expert in biblical or christian teachings.
Here is my opinion this though. I don’t believe this was an incident related to intuition. It sounds more like “synchronicity.”
Synchronicity occurs when what is going on within our consciousness is mirrored back to us by our environment. The stronger our belief or thought patterns are about something the more likely it is that we will come across it in our reality.
I don’t believe in a “punishing God.” I believe that we create our reality through our belief systems. Our beliefs define how we “label” the events of our lives. When we “look” for something – we find it only because everything, both good and bad, already exists in our reality. We only need to focus upon it for it to “appear.”
Your friend might have been distracted at work that day. He also might have harbored an unconscious fear that God was angry and might punish him for not going to church.
The accident and not going to church are not related but, we can choose to tie the two together based our our own belief system.
I hope you enjoyed reading these questions.
What questions do you have about intuition? How do you feel about my saying that I don’t think “not going to church and the accident” are related? Share your opinion.
